“A poor decision when it comes to road safety could cause you a lifetime of regret” – that’s the warning issued by Gardaí today following the detection of a drug-driver in Letterkenny.A motorist was caught driving under the influence of cannabis during a roadside test on Monday 29th April.The vehicle was first stopped by the Roads Policing Unit for having a possible defect. The driver was subsequently tested for the presence of drugs and the test came back positive for cannabis. The driver has been ordered to appear in court in the near future.The incident sparked a warning from local gardaí, who posted on Facebook: “PLEASE do not ever drive with drink/drugs in your system. Have due regard for the safety of other road users who deserve to make it home safely. A poor decision when it comes to road safety could cause you a lifetime of regret!!!”Image: Garda Siochana DonegalGarda warning after driver caught drug-driving in Letterkenny was last modified: May 1st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Tjaronn Chery’s well taken goal and Junior Hoilett’s penalty put QPR in a commanding position at Loftus Road.Chery, recalled to the starting line-up by boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, struck 10 minutes before half-time – his sixth goal of the season and second in three matches.James Perch pulled the ball back from the left and Chery showed great composure to steady himself and fire low into the far corner.And Hoilett doubled the lead from the spot four minutes later after Sebastian Polter had been brought down by Michael Morrison.Polter, preferred to Conor Washington up front, turned away from Paul Robinson and Morrison was arguably fortunate to escape with just a yellow card after bringing down the German as he was about to shoot.Earlier, Chery’s deflected shot flashed narrowly wide and Birmingham’s David Cotterill fired wide after being picked out by Jacques Mahoma.QPR: Smithies, Onuoha, Angella, Hall, Perch, Henry, Luongo, Phillips, Chery, Hoilett, Polter.Subs: Ingram, El Khayati, Konchesky, Tozser, Washington, Petrasso, Faurlin.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Dylan Moses, an eighth-grader from Baton Rouge, La., must be an amazing talent, for the middle-schooler received a scholarship offer from the No. 1 program in the country, Alabama.The 2017 running back prospect also was offered a scholarship by LSU last summer. He and his father, Edward Moses Jr., visited the Crimson Tide campus, and the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Moses was impressed.“For Dylan, excitement spilled over,” Moses Jr. said to ESPN. “When he heard those words from coach (Nick) Saban, ‘We’re offering you,’ you could see him light up. It was shocking because we were going in thinking we were just going to get a tour of what Alabama has to offer.“To hear, ‘You’re impressive, keep your grades up, we want you to come here, and we’re offering you a scholarship now,’ I can’t even put that into words.”It’s not the first time Alabama has offered a scholarship to a younger recruit, and it doesn’t happen very often.The Tide offered current 2013 signee Tim Williams as well as 2014 ESPN Watch List running back Leonard Fournette scholarships when they were both freshmen.Still, Moses might be the first eighth-grader to receive an Alabama offer. Other schools haven’t started showing interest yet, but his father anticipates things to pick up in the spring and summer. For now, Alabama and LSU have the early advantage.“The battle for Dylan internally is who would be the best fit,” Moses Jr. said. “Right now, he’s an eighth-grader, he doesn’t have to worry about that.“We have LSU right here. They have access to us. At Alabama, we know what they have over there with the great running backs and another first-rounder on the way. Those two schools are No. 1, and everybody else is 2, 3, 4 and 5.”The offer from the Tide and the earlier offer from LSU has the 2017 phenom on top of the world, but his father knows it’s his job to keep him grounded through the recruiting process. After all, he still has four years before he signs his national letter of intent.“The attention from those levels of institutions, No. 1 and No. 2 in the SEC and arguably in the country, he feels like a boss, like he’s untouchable,” Moses Jr. said. “We have to bring him back on down to earth, let him know that he still has to do his work down here to make sure that dream comes true.”
Felani . File PhotoThe Indian Border Security Force (BSF) killed a total of 403 Bangladeshi nationals along the India-Bangladesh border in past nine years, according to human rights organisation Odhikar.The Bangladesh-based organisation said this on Friday issuing a statement marking the seventh anniversary of the killing of Bangladeshi girl Felani by BSF.In the statement, Odhikar said that the 403 Bangladeshi citizens were killed by the BSF between 2009 and 2017.Among them, some 269 were gunned down, another 109 were tortured to death and 25 were killed by other means. Furthermore, 593 Bangladeshis were injured.Among the injured, 337 were shot, 219 were tortured and 37 were injured in different ways. A further 468 persons were abducted by BSF personnel during this period.On 7 January 2011, BSF members of the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) shot dead Felani Khatun, as she was crossing the India-Bangladesh border into Bangladesh. Her body was left hanging from the barbed wire fence of the border.To date, BSF member Amiya Ghosh, who was involved in the killing and his superior officers, have not been convicted. The adjudication of Felani’s killing was held in BSF’s own court, General Security Forces Court (GSFC), where the accused Amiya Ghosh was not found guilty.Odhikar in its statement said Felani’s killing was a brutal example of the aggression of the Indian government towards Bangladesh over the past decades.The indiscriminate killing and torturing of Bangladeshi nationals, regardless of age, is nothing new to the BSF, the statement added. BSF tortured school student Hasnat Halsham Inu, 15, to death in 2010 while another student Hasanuzzaman, 16, was shot dead in 2015.In 2017, BSF members shot and killed two school students, Sohel Rana and Harun-ur Rashid.Odhikar condemned the killing and torturing of Bangladeshi citizens, including Felani, in the hands of BSF, and all incidents of human rights violations and political and economical aggression of the Indian government.Citing reports, the rights organisation said every year many Bangladeshi citizens are killed and injured either by being shot or tortured by BSF along the Bangladesh-India border.On many occasions, the statement said, BSF members attacked and robbed Bangladeshi people by violating the sovereignty of Bangladesh and illegally trespassing onto Bangladesh territory.According to the statement, the state government of Assam has reportedly taken an initiative to evict Bangla-speaking Indian-Muslim citizens on the pretext of identifying illegal migrants in Assam.It added the India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) formed the local government in Assam through provincial elections in 2016.This newly elected state government of Assam is trying to push the Bangla-speaking Indian-Muslim citizens towards Bangladesh, whose predecessors came to Assam region before 24 March 1971.The statement said the rights organisation believes that an independent and sovereign state can never accept such aggression and human rights violations perpetrated on its citizens and on its soil by another state.It also said the international community needs to raise concerns regarding these issues, otherwise these aggressive activities may destabilise Bangladesh; and such destabilisation might spread through South Asia.
This article was originally published on The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. Disclosure: The Texas secretary of state’s office has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that is funded in part by donations from members, foundations and corporate sponsors. Financial supporters play no role in the Tribune’s journalism. Find a complete list of them here. Miguel Gutierrez Jr. / The Texas TribuneTexas Secretary of State David Whitley office initiated a review of the voter rolls to look for noncitizens.The U.S. House’s main investigative committee has opened an inquiry into the Texas secretary of state’s review of the voter rolls for supposed noncitizens.In letters sent to top Texas officials on Thursday, U.S. Reps. Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chair of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Jamie Raskin, D-Maryland, requested documents and communications from the secretary of state and the state’s attorney general related to the review through which state officials tagged almost 100,000 registered voters as suspect voters.Texas officials rolled out the review effort in late January, shipping off lists of flagged voters to county voter registrars in what they described as routine maintenance of the state’s massive voter registration database. But state officials’ efforts have been dogged by errors in the data and litigation in federal court, which ground the entire review to a halt over concerns by a federal judge that it targeted naturalized citizens.“We are disturbed by reports that your office has taken steps to remove thousands of eligible American voters from the rolls in Texas and that you have referred many of these Americans for possible criminal prosecution for exercising their right to vote,” the congressmen wrote to Secretary of State David Whitley.In launching the review, Whitley announced that state officials had identified tens of thousands of registered voters who at some point in recent years told the Texas Department of Public Safety that they were not citizens when they obtained a driver’s license or ID card. Whitley’s office had immediately turned those names over to Attorney General Ken Paxton, whose office has the power to prosecute individuals for voter fraud.But the state data at the heart of the review was fundamentally flawed because it did not account for individuals who had become naturalized citizens since getting an ID. Additionally, almost a quarter of the individuals on the state’s list were erroneously flagged because of a miscommunication between the secretary of state’s office and DPS. Those individuals had already proved their citizenship and some had even registered to vote at state offices.The state continued to bungle the review when it mistakenly sent out additional names of voters to counties weeks later because of a technical error it blamed on a vendor.In defending the review effort, state officials have acknowledged they knew naturalized citizens would be swept up in the review but decided to press forward anyway — a move that’s drawn intense scrutiny and criticism by civil and voting rights advocates, naturalized citizens and Democratic lawmakers.Democratic U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined that chorus of opposition earlier this month when she aligned Texas Republicans’ actions on the voter rolls with what she characterized as broader efforts to undermine the U.S Constitution.In their letters, Cummings and Raskin — who chairs a subcommittee on civil rights and civil liberties — cited their authority to investigate “any matter” at “any time” under the rules of the U.S. House of Representatives. Noting they’ve examined state voting issues in the past, they requested all sorts of communications between state agencies involved in the review, as well as any communications with Trump administration officials.The secretary of state’s office and the attorney general’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But state officials have continued to back the voter review effort, saying it’s required by federal and state laws that call on the state to maintain accurate voter rolls.As part of the review, naturalized citizens on the state’s list began receiving letters ordering them to prove they are citizens within 30 days to avoid being kicked off the rolls. Those deadlines have since been paused by a federal judge in San Antonio who has criticized the secretary of state’s office for the “mess” it created.Despite that court order, at least 14 registered voters were removed from the state’s voter rolls. They have since been reinstated.Two Texas Republicans — Michael Cloud of Victoria and Chip Roy of Austin — sit on the committee.Read the House committee’s letter to Texas officials:View Fullscreen Share
