Five persons are now making alternative living arrangements after a fire of unknown origin completely razed their Paradise, West Coast Berbice, home earlier this morning.The house completely engulfed in flamesBased on reports gathered, smoke was seen billowing from the building at about 10:30h and quickly engulfed the entire building. No one was at home at the time. The wooden building was owned by Melissa Hutson.According to reports received, one of Hutson’s sons left home minutes before flames were seen coming from the house.Guyana Times could not ascertain whether any electrical appliances were left plugged into outlets. Reports suggested however that a kerosene stove was left alight.The Guyana Fire Service has launched a probe into the cause of the fire.
O’Neill will have some big selection decisions to make in the build up to the game. Having dropped five players for the Ukraine match after thier defeat to Poland in the opener, he has the options of either sticking with his winning formula, or reverting back to his original plan.Probably the biggest decision he’ll face will be whether or not he re-introduces Kyle Lafferty back up front, having opted for Conor Washington to lead the line against Ukraine.He’ll also have to consider that Craig Cathcart, Stuart Dallas, Jonny Evans and Jamie Ward are all also on bookings, and are therefore just one more yellow card away from facing a one match ban.Group C PermutationsIf Northern Ireland can beat the world champions this evening, they will be certain of a place in the round of 16, and if Poland don’t beat Ukraine, then they would finish top. A draw will also probably suffice, but even if they lose, the tournament debutants could still qualify as one of the four best third placed sides, depending on results in other groups.As for Germany, a draw will guarentee them progression, as they already have four points. 2 Every Goal, Every Game, Every Day on talkSPORTNorthern Ireland are within touching distance of a place in the round of 16 in their debut European Championship. There is just one problem: they face world champions Germany in their final group game this evening.Following an excellent victory over Ukraine last Thursday, Michael O’Neill’s men are now assured of at least a third place finish in Group C, knowing that a point in this final game would be likely to send them through to the knockout stage.Northern Ireland and Germany (or West Germany, as they were) have only ever faced each other once before in a major tournament, all the way back at the 1958 World Cup they drew 2-2 in a group game.LIVE on talkSPORT: Northern Ireland v Germany – click here for commentary from Parc des Princes, at 5pm (BST) on June 21, 2016Here’s how Group C stands: The starting 11 for our final @UEFAEURO Group C match against Germany! #DareToDream #GAWA pic.twitter.com/tN4agMLW0h— Northern Ireland (@NorthernIreland) June 21, 2016 2 Two changes against #NIR, as @Mario_Gomez & #Kimmich come in for #Draxler & @BeneHoewedes. #JeederFuerJeden #NIRGER pic.twitter.com/Xks63gKUmf— Germany (@DFB_Team_EN) June 21, 2016

WASHINGTON – Seaport workers will undergo background checks for links to terrorism and to ensure they are legal U.S. residents, the Bush administration said Tuesday. The announcement came after months of scathing criticism about security gaps at the nation’s ports. The heightened scrutiny – which will begin immediately – drew praise from some lawmakers and port associations that said the checks were long overdue. Others jeered the security measures as either too weak or too invasive of workers’ privacy rights. The names of an estimated 400,000 employees who work in the most sensitive areas of ports will be matched against government terror watch lists and immigration databases, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said. They will be among roughly 750,000 workers – including truckers and rail employees – who have unrestricted access to ports and will be required to carry tamper-resistant identification cards by next year.

He called the safeguards part of a “ring of security” around U.S. ports. The background checks will not examine workers’ criminal history, although Chertoff left open that possibility for the future.
Back on May 5, with the possible owners’ decision a few weeks away, I thought it would be fun to think up a name for the likely NFL pro football franchise in Los Angeles. I thought it should be something about the entertainment industry, the No. 1 job generator in the Southland. I came up with Moguls, Stars, Pretenders, Performers and less-charming ideas. But settled with L.A. Celebs, because it was catchy and only two syllables. So I printed up some bumper stickers, and sent the graphic to laobserved.com, a Los Angeles blog. That day I received a phone call from Judy Battista, staff writer for The New York Times, who had seen the laobserved blog. I was shocked that The Times would take such interest in my plan. But Battista was quite serious in her questions about the name and its relevance to the entertainment industry in the Los Angeles area. The more I thought about the history of the feature film, television and music industries, the more I was convinced we have taken this economic powerhouse for granted. We have not shown proper respect for their impact on all of our lives.

Every one of us knows someone who is a grip, electrician, set decorator, transportation coordinator, or one the many other craft positions in the film, television and music industries. These craft people are the lifeblood of Studio City, Burbank and many other communities in the L.A. region. This industry will never be eclipsed by any other country. Our movies and television shows are sent to almost every other country in the world, translated into more than 100 languages, and broadcast for international audiences’ viewing pleasure. Our musicians, based in Los Angeles, can be heard on CDs in every country in the world. Sting, Eminem, Madonna, Alicia Keys and many other performers fill stadiums all over the world. None of them could walk the streets in China without being mobbed. Maybe we have become jaded, when our Hollywood celebrity shows spend 10 minutes on Paris Hilton, and no time on Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, or young directors or writers. They pander to the actor category when in fact actors are economically a small segment of the entertainment industry. Our television “celebrity” outlets have forgotten the many creative geniuses such as writers, directors and producers who create the dialogue for our many successful feature films and television shows. The New York Times thought the name L.A. Celebs was worthy of discussion, as the future name of our Los Angeles pro football franchise, if it comes to be. Until such time as we have a team, and team owner, I will refer to our possible pro football team as the L.A. Celebs. This is my individual way to pay homage and respect to the greatest creative group of people on our planet – the American entertainment industry.

Cesc Fabregas would be a ‘fantastic fit’ for Liverpool, according to former Reds star Luis Garcia.The Merseysiders are being linked with a £25million swoop for the Chelsea playmaker, with suggestions they will rival Manchester United for the Spaniard’s signature this summer.Fabregas, a World Cup winner with Spain, has not been a regular starter in the Premier League this season but has played a decisive role in his numerous appearances off the bench.Speaking to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Garca said of the 29-year-old: “The technique, the ability he has got, the mindset of knowing always what is happening around him, he is one of those players who can fit everywhere.“Of course, for Liverpool he would be a fantastic fit.“The other side of this is how fans will receive a Chelsea player! We will see what happens.”

August is national hair loss awareness month, so it’s the perfect time for the team at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing in Letterkenny to share their guide to the causes of hair loss and the treatments they offer:People tend to think of hair loss mainly as a male issue, mostly affecting older men in particular. However, many women are also confronted with reduced volume and thinning at some point in their lives, which can have a negative impact on self-esteem and confidence. Hair loss in women can happen for a number of reasons. Stress, diet, medication, hormonal changes and even a hereditary predisposition for balding can all be contributing factors towards thinning and losing hair.Kiera Galbraith – Patrick Gildea HairdressingKiera Galbraith, one of the specialists in thinning hair at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing, says “At any given time, around 85% of your hair is in a growth phase, known as the anagen phase. The remaining 15% is spent in the telogen resting phase, meaning that it has reached its complete growth potential and will eventually shed. This is the reason why it’s completely natural for both men and women to shed a small amount of hair on a day-to-day basis.“Hair loss occurs when certain triggers, such as those mentioned above, interrupt the healthy growth cycle and far more hair than usual enters the shedding phase, resulting in noticeable areas of hair loss.“Due to the ever-changing nature of hormones throughout our lives, women are particularly vulnerable to some unique hair loss triggers attributed to hormonal change, such a pregnancy and menopause.” So How Can We Help?Making the most of the hair you have begins with a consultation with one of our fully-qualified Hair & Scalp Specialists who will be able to introduce you to the benefits of NIOXIN, talk through your needs and recommend a fully personalised solution.Kiera recommends a Complete Renewal Service which includes:Consultation This is where it all starts: a conversation about the causes of thinning hair and an assessment of your individual needs.
