NYPD Officer Brian Moore’s Funeral Arrangements Set

Posted on by

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Funeral arrangements have been set for the slain NYPD officer from Massapequa who died Monday after he was shot in the head by an alleged gunman in Queens Village.A wake will be held at Chapey & Sons Funeral Home in Bethpage for Officer Brian Moore on Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The fallen officer’s funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. at St. James Roman Catholic Church in Seaford on Friday.Police said Moore, 25, a member of the 105th Precinct’s anti-crime team, was shot in the head Saturday allegedly by 35-year-old Demetrius Blackwell while on patrol in the vicinity of 212th Street and 104th Ave.Blackwell, an ex-con who previously spent five years in prison for attempted murder, was initially charged with first-degree attempted murder, but the charges are likely to be upgraded to first-degree murder after Moore succumbed to his injuries Monday.Officer Moore and his partner were both in plainclothes and sitting inside an unmarked patrol car when they spotted Blackwell “adjusting an object in his waistband,” in the Queens Village section of South Queens at 6:15 p.m. Saturday, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said.Moore, the driver, pulled up behind Blackwell and inquired about his actions, Bratton said. That’s when police said Blackwell allegedly turned toward the officers and fired several shots, striking Officer Moore in the head.“Both officers were still seated in the vehicle and did not have an opportunity to get out or return fire,” Bratton said. Moore has been described as a dedicated officer born into a police family. Both his father and uncle are retired NYPD sergeants and he has a cousin who is also a police officer, officials said.“Officer Moore did God’s work, like his father and his uncle before him,” Bratton said Monday. “He was doing God’s work when he confronted a felon. He was doing it when he was struck down. He did it to prevent crime and disorder, and to keep the community free from fear. He did it to make New York City safer and fairer.”Nassau County police released a statement late Monday expressing “its deepest regret and sadness” over Moore’s death.Gov. Andrew Cuomo Tuesday ordered flags on all state government buildings to be flown at half-staff in memory of the slain officer and Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano ordered flags at half-staff on county buildings through June 2.“Like so many of his brothers and sisters in uniform, Officer Moore served with selflessness and courage, and he will be greatly missed,” Cuomo said.last_img read more

Casino issues worse than we thought

Posted on by

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion My initial knee-jerk opposition to ruining hundreds of acres of farmland near Amsterdam for something as useless as a casino was mainly out of environmental consideration. The arguments put forth by this venture’s proponents seemed to smack of pie-in-the-sky, while its opponents advanced a more convincing case, citing the socio-economic track records of existing casinos.As we know, Schenectady landed this boondoggle and we have about a year’s track record to examine.The Jan. 14 Gazette featured opinion pieces by Dr. Roger H. Hull and columnist Sara Foss.In short, the Rivers casino’s first year has been marked by economic underperformance and alarming increases in social costs that can’t be measured solely by dollars. Sara cites statistics from Philip Rainer, chief clinical officer at Capital Counseling, the non-profit agency that runs the Center for Problem Gambling in Albany. “In February 2017, there were 24 people enrolled in the center’s gambling treatment problem. By December, that number has risen to 54 — a 60 percent increase.” So as not to weaken the argument against casinos, these figures need correction. Fifty-four is a 125 percent increase over 24. This mathematical miscalculation may have led Sara to comment: “These numbers may not sound huge.”A problem growing at this rate is alarming to say the least.What’s become very clear is the pile of BS peddled in promoting casinos. That’s huuuge.Gordon F. SchaufelbergAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Three seniors who started as seventh-graders providing veteran experience for Amsterdam golfEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more

NAB predicts a sharp decline in unit prices of 4.5 per cent in Brisbane over the next year.Confidence in the housing market nationally also fell to a new low, driven mainly by the cooling of prices in NSW and Victoria.

Siccar Point pushes back Lyon well to minimize costs

Posted on by

first_imgAberdeen-based oil company Siccar Point Energy has decided to defer the drilling of the Lyon exploration well offshore the Shetland Islands until 2019.The exploration well 208/2-A (Lyon) is located in license P.1854, approximately 125 kilometers northwest of the Shetland Islands. The water depth at the site is about 1,444 meters.The initial drilling program was supposed to take place from May to August 2018 immediately following the Cambo appraisal well which has not been completed yet.Siccar Point said on Tuesday that, with the Cambo well operations due to be completed shortly, the drilling of the Lyon well would be pushed back to 2019.According to the company, this is primarily to mitigate the risk of weather downtime as the well would continue into the winter season if drilled in direct continuation with Cambo.The Lyon well will now form part of Siccar Point’s 2019 drilling program which also includes the Blackrock exploration well in license P.1830.Jonathan Roger, CEO of Siccar Point, said: “Given the challenges of winter drilling West of Shetland, it makes sense to defer the Lyon well until next year to minimize the likely cost. On the plus side, we have had a very successful result on Cambo and look forward to progressing that into the development phase.”To remind, Siccar farmed out 66.66% of the P.1854 license to Ineos in late 2017. The company retained the operatorship and the remaining 33.34% working interest.The company then extended a contract with North Atlantic Drilling Ltd. (NADL) for the West Hercules semi-submersible rig for the drilling of the Lyon well. The West Hercules was also hired for the drilling of the Cambo appraisal well.Back in August 2018, Siccar Point concluded well testing operations on the 204/10a-5 appraisal well in the Cambo field, confirming over 100ft of oil column and a higher than anticipated net pay of 58ft.Location of the P.1854 license; Source: Siccarlast_img read more

first_img Share 53 Views   one comment Share Sharing is caring! LocalNews New youth radio program to be launched by: – February 2, 2012center_img Tweet Share A new radio programme geared at developing leadership skills among the youth and hearing what affects them will be officially launched in Dominica today.L.I.S.T.E.N which means Lessons Impacting Students to Empowerment Now, the brainchild of Rhoda St. John of the Generations of Opportunities Organization is geared towards highlighting the positive image of young people.St. John told an exclusive interview with Dominica Vibes News that more often than not only the negative things which young people do are highlighted in society, particularly in the media and she believes that the LISTEN programme is one way to change this trend.“Many times we hear everything that is negative where the youth are concerned is always quick to hit the media, everything bad is always quick to hit the media but when it comes to the positive things it doesn’t hit the media. What we are trying to do is to get the positive image of our young people, the positive voice that they have to offer we would like to get that into society; we would like to get that across the Caribbean.”The program which will be hosted by four young people on Vibes Radio, Dominica’s newest internet radio will be simultaneously aired by 12 Caribbean radio stations including Antigua, Anguilla, Montserrat, Grenada, St. Kitts, St. Vincent, St. Thomas and GuyanaSt. John explained the reason for partnering with other radio stations across the Caribbean for this youth programme.“We have to understand that when one island is destroyed all the others feel it. There’s no reason for us to pretend that it is not our concern for as we cherish and protect our individualities remember we are all called islands of the Caribbean. Anything that affects one island affects all the islands and therefore so we figure it is in the best interest to have a youth radio programme across the entire Caribbean so that the young persons can share their views, share concerns and let their voices be heard.”LISTEN will be aired every Saturday from 3 to 4pm on Vibes Radio and will feature several educational discussions including managements, saving, a tourism essay competition among others.According to St. John, “Our leaders of tomorrow are our youth of today and we need to train them now, they have a voice and they are the change; we are going out and they are coming in and they are our change makers”.The official launching will take place at the Fort Young Hotel from 3pm and will be broadcast live on http://www.vibesradio.dm and the 12 other radio stations across the Caribbean and includes.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Kiss defends choke tackle technique

Posted on by

first_img Ireland are unbeaten in Dublin since November 2013, while head coach Schmidt’s side can equal their all-time Test record of 10 consecutive victories with another win this weekend. Kiss has warned Ireland to beware the growing influence on England’s attacking game emanating from the free-running Bath contingent currently dominating the backline. “The England Test matches are games I absolutely love. There’s a natural intensity that develops with those games and I think the reason for that is they are such a quality team,” said Kiss. “They have really built well over the last two or three years under Stuart Lancaster. He has done a fantastic job with their coaching group in the way that they have developed as a coaching team. “You can see some real influences from different clubs coming through, the Bath influence with the three backs they have that are very, very dangerous, Jonathan Joseph, George Ford and Anthony Watson. “They have certainly opened up a lot of width in their game. “There’s been a lot of influence from that area and they are going to be dangerous across the park.” Ireland assistant coach Kiss claimed Edwards was “wide of the mark” to label the ploy “a blight on the game”, suggesting tackling with a bid to hold players off the ground leads to clashes of heads. Former Australia rugby league star Kiss devised the choke tackle in 2011, where defenders wrap up attackers and hold them off the ground to form a stagnant maul that wins a turnover via the scrum put-in. Les Kiss, the pioneer of the choke tackle, has rejected Wales coach Shaun Edwards’ claims the technique is “very dangerous”. Kiss defended Ireland’s right to use the perfectly-legal tactic ahead of Joe Schmidt’s side hosting England in Sunday’s RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam eliminator. “Look, there has been a little bit said. I’ve got a lot of respect for Shaun Edwards actually but I think he’s a little bit wide of the mark saying it’s the cause of a lot of concussions,” said Kiss. “By virtue of the tackle itself you have to cool your jets a bit and wrap a bit more to get under the ball, so you actually have less heat in the collision to actually affect it properly. “When you do a lot of chop tackles there’s a danger there where you can get hit by knees and hips as well, so the baseline for us, we just try to coach as good technique as we can in whatever tackle we use. “It’s one of the forms of tackle we have, we try to vary it up in a tactical sense as well, and a lot of clubs and countries are using it now as an effective weapon. “But I don’t think you can overuse it, and that’s where England have been quite astute as well to mix up how they do use it. “But I don’t agree that it’s a dangerous form of tackle that’s for sure.” The winner of Sunday’s Aviva Stadium clash will take a giant step towards the 2015 Six Nations title, and wind up the only side able to complete a Grand Slam.
