A Route 44 minibus conductor was on Saturday evening found hanging under his two-storey Central Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara (ECD) home.Dead is 31-year-old Frank Fordyce, called “Monty” of Lot 31 Farm, Mahaicony. His body was discovered around 21:20h on Saturday by a neighbour.According to information reaching Guyana Times, Fordyce’s next-door neighbour, Atherly Beaton, noticed the conductor under the house and shortly after he realised that the man was hanging from a piece of rope.The Police were summoned and on arrival, they found Fordyce’s shirtless andDead: Frank “Monty” Fordycebarefooted body hanging by the neck. Upon further inspection of his body, no marks of violence were found. As such, investigators are treating the matter as a suicide.Relatives of the now dead man reportedly told the Police that they were unaware if the bus conductor was having any problems. At the time of his death, Fordyce was living alone.A former employer, a minibus driver, told this publication that Fordyce had stopped working with him about a month ago and was conducting another bus. He related that after receiving news of his former employee’s death, he went to his home.“I was on the road when I hear, so I go to the house and it had a lot of people there already … the Police was there too… I don’t know why he do something like this; I really can’t say,” the man told this newspaper.Guyana Times was further told that Fordyce was last seen alive about 20 minutes prior to the discovery of his body.He was removed and taken to the Mahaicony Hospital, where he was confirmed as dead by an on-duty doctor.The body is at the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting a post-mortem examination, which is expected to be conducted today.
Sarri’s standing had been severely undermined by Kepa after the rebellious keeper sparked an astonishing meltdown from the Italian when he refused to be substituted during Sunday’s League Cup final.Sarri was furious when Kepa ignored his decision to take him off after he required treatment for cramp in the closing stages of their penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City.Kepa apologised for his behaviour, but the 24-year-old was punished with a fine of one week’s wages before Sarri attempted to regain control of his squad by selecting Argentine veteran Willy Caballero in his place at Stamford Bridge.Caballero kept a confident clean-sheet while Kepa languished on the bench and Chelsea produced a committed display that suggested Sarri’s players still back their beleaguered boss.With Arsenal and Manchester United both winning on Wednesday, Chelsea remain in sixth place — three points outside the top four — but there is now a little hope for Sarri after a difficult period.Successive defeats at Burnley and now against their bitter London rivals have left third placed Tottenham’s title bid in tatters.Tey have lost four consecutive away matches in all competitions for the first time in 10 years and lie nine points adrift of leaders Liverpool.– Seige mentality –There was a mixture of boos and cheers for Kepa’s name from Chelsea fans when the squad was read out over the tannoy before kick-off.But, while it remains to be seen if his exile is more than a one-match slap on the wrist from Sarri, it would be no surprise if he sticks with Caballero against Fulham on Sunday.Right from the start, Chelsea seemed to thrive on the seige mentality.Cesar Azpilicueta’s high cross was met with a weak header by Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko and Gonzalo Higuain sliced his half-volley against a post with keeper Hugo Lloris rooted to the spot.Higuain squandered another chance to put Chelsea ahead when Lloris’s suicidal pass from his own goalline was intercepted by Pedro on the edge of the Tottenham area.Pedro and Eden Hazard combined to set up Higuain, but the Argentine’s curler drifted wide to leave Sarri holding his head in frustration.Harry Winks went close to breaking the deadlock just before half-time as the Tottenham midfielder’s long-range effort dipped over Caballero and hit the bar.Chelsea were back on top in the second half and their pressure reaped a rich reward in the 57th minute.Azpilicueta slipped a pass to Pedro down the right side of the Tottenham area and the Spanish winger cut inside the lumbering Toby Alderweireld before firing a low shot that flashed through Lloris’s legs at his near post.Often criticised for is predictable substitutions, Sarri sprang a surprise when he took off Hazard immediately after Pedro’s goal.But Pedro preserved Chelsea’s lead with a superbly-timed tackle to stop Eriksen in his tracks as the Tottenham midfielder prepared to shoot.Sarri’s luck was finally turning for the better and he was able to celebrate a vital victory thanks to Trippier’s blunder in the 84th minute.When Olivier Giroud flicked the ball towards him, Trippier bizarrely left it until Lloris had come his line, then attempted a back-pass that raced past his keeper and into the empty net.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pedro grabbed the opening goal of the evening at Stamford Bridge to set Chelsea on their way to a morale-boosting victory. Photo/DAILY MAILLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 28 – Chelsea put a smile back on Maurizio Sarri’s face with a crucial 2-0 win over Tottenham that secured a stay of execution for their troubled manager after Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped following his Wembley mutiny.Pedro’s second half strike and a farcical own goal from Kieran Trippier were a much-needed boost for Sarri as the Chelsea manager fights to avoid the sack following a turbulent first season in charge.
Sidney Crosby scored on Pittsburgh’s first shot and finished with two goals Tuesday night, leading the visiting Penguins to a 6-4 victory over the Montreal Canadiens, the team the 18-year-old star rooted for as a youngster. Crosby’s second goal of the game — his team-leading 21st — gave the Penguins a 5-4 lead early in the third period. He was credited with the go-ahead goal at 1:58. The game was delayed for a video review that clearly showed that Crosby kicked back a rebound off Jose Theodore toward the Canadiens goalie. The puck struck the edge of Theodore’s left skate, which redirected it into the net. Lightning 1, Rangers 0 (OT): Vaclav Prospal jammed the puck past Henrik Lundqvist at 3:47 of overtime, and John Grahame made 36 saves for his second shutout of the season in Tampa Bay’s victory over the host Rangers. Lundqvist made 19 saves in New York’s sixth loss in its last eight games. Aebischer stopped 32 shots for his second shutout this season and 12th of his career. Oilers 5, Blackhawks 0: Fernando Pisani scored twice and Ty Conklin stopped 23 shots, leading the host Oilers over reeling Chicago. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donegal senior champions Glenswilly have pulled off a surprise by beating hotly-tipped Cavan Gaels in the Ulster Club Championship.Once again it was Michael Murphy who inspired his side with a last gasp goal to help the Glen men beat the Gaels by a single point at Breffni Park on a scoreline of 1-08 to 10 points.Having beaten St.Michael’s in the Donegal Senior Championship final at MacCumhaill Park, many pundits thought Glenswilly would find it tough against the Cavan champions. And with two points to spare in injury time, it looked as if Cavan had done enough.But not many teams can boast having the calibre of player as Murphy on their side as he pounced to snatch victory with a penalty in what was a great overall team display from Glenswilly.The sides were level at 0-6 each at half-time after Michael Lyng and Seanie Johnston had hit the target for Gaels, with Keelan McFadden and Murphy responding.Conor McClarey gave Cavan the lead in the closing stages, but they were stunned by Murphy’s late strike. And it was the pundits what won it, with the management team revealing afterwards that they told the players to prove to the so-called experts how wrong they were.Endswww.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMURPHY’S LAST GASP GOAL SNATCHES VICTORY FOR GLENSWILLY IN ULSTER CHAMPIONSHIP was last modified: October 17th, 2011 by StephenShare 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) Tags:Cavan GaelsglenswillyUlster Championship

The Start button is back.According to reports by Microsoft experts Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott, a forthcoming update to Windows 8 codenamed “Blue” will restore the familiar interface for navigating Windows.A feature of Microsoft operating systems since Windows 95, the Start button allowed quick access to applications and system features. Windows 8, in a marked departure, traded it for a tablet-like, touchscreen-optimized system for navigating apps. That, understandably, confused and frustrated Windows users, many of whom found Windows 8 befuddling rather than innovative.Microsoft Shows A Less-Than-Deft TouchMicrosoft has had a consistent party line on these complaints, which is to urge people to try Windows 8 on new touchscreen PCs and tablets.(See also Windows Blue’s Goal: You Will Love Metro – Eventually.)One of Microsoft’s strengths has alway been its embrace of backwards compatibility—the ongoing guarantee that newer PCs will run older software. The Surface RT tablet, which cannot run older Windows software, and the new Xbox One, which likewise will not play old games, suggest that Microsoft has become more willing to abandon the old, as it did with the Start button.Here’s the mistake Microsoft made: While it’s trivially easy to update software, and new hardware can be sold, it’s far harder to rewire the wetware in our brains. And hundreds of millions of Windows users over the past two decades have been trained to look for a Start button.(See also How Windows 8 Throws Computer Users Under The Bus.)And a basic interface feature like that is not analogous to a game or even a piece of software. Video gamers rapidly grow bored of old games and seek out new ones. But the way we use PCs becomes a matter of routine. And there’s nothing more annoying than breaking people’s routines.No wonder PC sales are falling.Screenshot of Windows 8.1 via Paul Thurrott’s Windows Supersite.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of discrimination against the Congress government in Punjab on matters of religious importance, as part of his and his party’s divisive agenda.Capt. Amarinder in a statement asked why the Prime Minister had not pointed fingers at the Akali Dal leaders, including the Badals, for failing to attend the Central government function to commemorate the centenary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.“Neither Parkash Singh Badal nor Sukhbir Badal, nor Harsimrat Badal, who happens to be a Minister in Modi’s own Cabinet, deemed it fit to pay their homage to the martyrs at the historic Jallianwala Bagh,” said the Chief Minister, pointing out that Mr. Modi himself chose to keep away from the occasion of national importance but had criticised him (Amarinder) even though he had been part of a series of events at the Jallianwala Bagh national memorial. “Why was Mr. Modi not present at this major event? Why did the Badals fail to turn up, and why did the Prime Minister choose to conveniently ignore their absence,” asked the Chief Minister. ‘PM exposed’Capt. Amarinder said by holding a parallel event to mark the Jallianwala Bagh centenary, instead of supporting the State government’s commemorative programmes, the Prime Minister had exposed his true intent.He added that there was a clear pattern in the Prime Minister’s attack on him on the Jallianwala Bagh issue, which the Central government had been trying to politicise to woo the Punjabi community and further the BJP’’s political ambitions.
