I’m now looking forward to working hard, improving and doing the best I can for the Saints.“I’d like to thank everyone who has got me where I am today; from the people who spotted me when I was younger to the coaches at my amateur clubs.“The staff have been brilliant since I joined the Saints – right from the Academy through to the first team – as has the club both on and off the field.“The fans have also been superb and I would like to thank them for their support every time I pull on the Red Vee.”The Welsh International joined the Saints after impressing on trial after playing rugby league for South Wales Scorpions at 16s and Wales at Under 18s.His try scoring record in the u19s over the last two seasons was phenomenal and he was part of Derek Traynor’s unbeaten Academy Championship side in 2016.He has now begun to translate that form into Super League.Saints Head Coach Justin Holbrook said: “I have only been here a short time but I have seen the raw potential Regan has.“He works hard in training and sets a strong example to the other younger players in the first team and Academy.“He knows he isn’t the finished product and with a strong work ethic I am sure he will continue to improve at the club.”last_img read more

No Comments on Town of Belville sets eyes on growth and expansion

first_img “We’re really looking forward to it. I think the people in our town are very happy with what’s going on. It’s a process of attracting those businesses here that will benefit the town and increase the amount of employment that we have here in the town,” Mike Allen, Belville Mayor, says.Commissioner Joe Breault says four years ago, there was basically nothing.“We came up with the idea of doing something to enhance the image of Belville. Frankly, six years ago, the town was at a crossroads. We had no identity, no direction, no guidance and no civic pride. There was nothing for the citizens to be proud of. Basically, there was those people who questioned whether Belville should even exist,” Breualt says.Related Article: Belville declares State of Emergency for townMany of these plans are part of the town’s five year plan. Breault says he hopes within ten years, the boardwalk will expand all the way to the battleship.“We’re hoping that the things that we’re doing are going to stimulate businesses and serve as an economic engine to bring more industry to this portion of the county,” Breault says.Breault says some of these ideas are still up for negotiation. BELVILLE, NC (WWAY) — Now that the Town of Belville has a new town hall, plans are on the horizon for a Belville boom.The town slowly built up the surrounding area by adding a boardwalk and fishing deck to their park.

Humpday Health Why its important to get yourself vaccinated

No Comments on Humpday Health Why its important to get yourself vaccinated

first_imgWILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Doctors all over the country recommend everyone to get vaccinated for diseases like tetanus, measles, and more.However, some people are worried about the perceived side effects of those vaccines.- Advertisement – “Vaccines are important for preventative health and for public health reasons. It’s important to protect yourself and protect others by getting yourself vaccinated,” said Andres Afanador, MD, a pediatrics doctor at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.Getting a shot may not be the most fun thing in the world, but it’s an important one to stop the spread of infectious diseases.Diseases that plagued our ancestors like smallpox, polio, or measles? Almost or completely gone, thanks to vaccines.Related Article: Construction continues on new orthopedic hospitalDoctors have kept the list of recommended vaccinations relatively static over the last decade, but there’s a newer shot that’s causing a stir.“One big, new, and sort of controversial, but not really controversial, addition has been the Gardasil vaccine. The Gardasil vaccine is a vaccine that prevents HPV virus, prevents cervical cancer,” said Afanador.If you don’t have insurance or another means to pay for vaccinations, you’re still covered.“To go to public school, they ask you, they don’t exactly mandate you, to have preventative vaccines, things to prevent tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, all these kinds of things. So that you can get for free at the health department,” said Afanador.In the last few years, some have decided to become anti-vaxxers, due to the perceived side effects of vaccines.Afanador says that joining this movement is unwise.“The bottom line is there’s a lot of misinformation about the side effects of vaccines, the efficacy of vaccines, and the safety of vaccines, but the truth is there’s no actual scientific evidence that supports some of the side effects that people are hearing,” said Afanador.So it’s a good idea to get yourself and your kids vaccinated, doing your part in preventing the spread of disease.last_img read more

No Comments on Ħal Far murder Music still played as he lay dead in the

first_img <a href=’;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrint The court has heard how the headphones belonging to the victim of a racially motivated murder committed on April 6th, were still playing music.Police Inspector Keith Arnaud explained that when he arrived on the scene and approached the corpse of murdered Lassana Souleyman Cisse, his headphones lights were still flashing. This account is part of the evidence being delivered in the trial against two AFM soldiers named as Lorin Scicluna and Francesco Fenech. They are accused of the murder of Cisse and the attempted murder of two fellow migrants on Triq il-Ġebel in Ħal Far.The Court presided by Magistrate Ian Farrugia showed that:The two suspects did not have a liking towards immigrants.Fenech asked Scicluna to go shoot cats on the day of the murder.Fenech threatened Scicluna that he would shoot him. This happened after Fenech shot Cisse.The Police used multiple footage to identify where the car went. It showed that it was very close to where Scicluna lives.The suspects tried to alter the car’s appearance after it was made public that the Police were searching for a Toyota Starlet.The suspects used to roam around in Ħal Far picking on immigrants with the motive that they would react and would give the suspects a reason to detain them. There was a case involving an immigrant who was cycling who threw rocks at their car, before getting off his bike and fleeing. The two suspects responded by exiting their car and smashing the bike. 9mm bullets were discovered both at the murder scene and under Scicluna’s bedArnaud explained that he had received the call at 11:10 pm describing how there was blood running into the road. When Arnaud arrived, two bullet cartridges identified as 9mm caliber were found close to Cisse’s body. The prosecuting officer also explained that according to the autopsy report, the bullet had entered his left temple.  The Inspector stated that Scicluna had 4 guns registered on his name. He told the court that following Scicluna’s arrest on 17 May at around 11:40 am, the accused showed the policemen his weapons which he kept under his bed. The Police collected several 9mm caliber rounds, said Arnaud. It was also explained that there was a separate crime scene involving two other migrants, both of whom had received bullet wounds to their lower torso. The Toyota StartletArnaud showed images from security cameras where Cisse was killed, at 10:52 pm. He explained that the only car to pass in the same direction in the same time period (about two minutes later) was a Toyota Starlet. During the investigation, the Police compiled footage from 55 CCTV cameras which spotted the car.Inspector Arnaud told the court that the car had distinctive marks, with a missing passenger mirror, while the lamps were fairly bright. He said that the bulb of the right side was brighter than the left side. He also said that there were no registration plates on the vehicle. Arnaud requested the collection of all information about this brand of car in Malta, even those which are intended to be scrapped. Using Transport Malta’s automatic car identification technology, the Inspector stated that the vehicle was registered to Lorin Scicluna.In his statement, Scicluna originally said that he had lent the vehicle to a foreigner, possibly a Syrian, who offered him €1000 to use it. However, Scicluna later admitted to being inside the vehicle during the time when the act was committed.Scicluna told the police that he had adjusted the mirror and stuck tape in order to modify the vehicle.Shots were fired from driver’s sideInspector Arnaud said that one of the victims described a white car passing by, and then they heard shots departing from the driver’s side. One victim described the two people in car as being white men, while the driver was a bit darker and had facial hair or a goatee. Fenech was riding as a passenger in the car while the car was being driven by Scicluna.Scicluna’s girlfriend told him to stay away from FenechScicluna’s girlfriend confirmed that she was not with her partner at the time if the murder, as she was at the cinema with her sister. However, she explained that at about 11:30 pm, Scicluna started messaging her asking where she was.She added that she did not like Fenech, and she wanted Scicluna to stir away from him and had told him to alter his character. She knew that Scicluna and Fenech had similar attitude towards immigrants. ‘They both do not like them, because they believe that immigrants come to Malta and try to take over’, continued Scicluna’s girlfriend.She also confirmed that the Toyota Starlet’s mirror has been recently fixed. Running their identification papers, police found that the victims had no criminal records, and they had never caused any problems or disputes with the authorities or other people.Both victims, Ibrahim Bah (22) from Guinea had already spent three months in Malta while Muhammed Diallo (29) of Gambia had been nine months in Malta. Both victims came to Malta from Italy to work while they lived together. They had said that they were returning home after watching a football match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, in Birzebbuga. The Inspector Arnaud stated that while the two survivors were living together, neither of them knew Cisse.Representing Lorin Scicluna were the lawyers Franco Debono, Julian Farrugia and Marion Camilleri. Gianella DeMarco represented Francesco Fenech.The lawyers Arthur Azzopardi and Alfred Abela are representing the victim’s family.The prosecution is being led by Inspector Keith Arnaud and Trevor Micallef.WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgAdvertisement As strange a concept as this sounds, OrganJet‘s new Web service provides a way to secure an affordable and fast transplant option from the comfort of your couch.OrganJet Corporation announced in a press release that users can now take advantage of an online tool to find kidney transplant centers that are close to home and have the lowest wait times.In the statement, OrganJet CEO Sridhar Tayur noted that the service is meant to bridge the gap between areas with an excess of usable kidneys and those in dire need of them. The company claims that 500 to 2,500 kidneys are wasted per year, and that more than 5,000 patients die annually waiting for one. – Advertisement – “There is significant disparity in wait times, ranging from more than 5 years in some areas, while it is half that in such regions as Pittsburgh, PA, Portland, OR, and Madison, Wisconsin,” said Tayur.OrganJet’s new online app can be found on the “Services” tab of the company’s official website. The app shows a world map, and allows users to find kidney transplant centers with low wait times by entering a zip code. That prompts a list of transplant centers organized by location, wait lists and children’s centers. From there, users can access the official website of the best possible kidney centers near them.With online software constantly evolving, it’s nice to see companies such as OrganJet use their tools to help those in need. There’s always an app for that, even when it comes to saving the lives of hundreds.Credit: LAPTOPlast_img read more

Tips for your childs safety on iPhone and iPad

No Comments on Tips for your childs safety on iPhone and iPad

first_imgGetting an iPhone or iPad for a child may seem like an accident waiting to happen, but help is at hand. Image Credit: 9to5mac Advertisement Getting an iPhone or iPad for a child may seem like an accident waiting to happen, but help is at hand. As horror stories flood the press of little tykes running up credit card bills with in-app purchases, it’s only natural to worry about what’s going on behind that big metal tablet. Thankfully, Apple has made a range of tools so parents can help keep their child safe. Here are the four most crucial safety tips for iOS devices.Turn On Parental Controls Pick up the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch you’re preparing to give your child. Under Settings > General > Restrictions, touch Enable Restrictions. The device will then ask you to make a passcode. This is not the same as the one used to unlock the device. Make it something secure: this code lets the user modify the restrictions in place, so something like a birthdate is probably not too hard for the child to figure out. To set a new passcode, simply disable restrictions then re-enable them. If you’ve forgotten the passcode, you’ll have to wipe the device and set up as new.Spend some time exploring all the different options. Apple lets parents restrict a wide range of apps and content, but it’s worth thinking twice about whether it’s necessary to restrict everything on the list. For example, disabling location services may seem like a good idea, but it could serve as a crucial navigation tool if the child is ever lost. The restrictions aren’t set forever though, so there’s no need to fear making the wrong decisions. – Advertisement – Set Up A Child Account Keep tabs on what your child is up to by giving them their own Apple ID. Apple supports special accounts for children under 13 that gives extra controls to the parents. It’s free, simple, and better than giving the child access to your account.Under Settings > iCloud > Family on your iOS device, Apple provides the option to create a new Apple ID for a child. If an iOS device is not to hand, a child account can also be set up using a Mac. Go to the Apple menu in the top left hand corner, then go System Preferences> iCloud > Manage Family and click the plus.On both platforms, follow the on-screen instructions, but remember to choose a password and security question that both you and your child can remember. If your child forgets their password, it can be reset through the parent’s email address along with the correct security question answers.Approve And Reject Purchases With a child account, a child can put in special requests to make purchases from their device. The feature is known as Ask to Buy and means that every purchase will need prior approval. This is the crucial feature: it’ll put an end to the horror stories of kids spending thousands of dollars for virtual costumes on their favorite iPhone role-playing game.Only one parent needs to approve the request. Under the family management screen, you can add more parents to lighten the workload. Requests are deleted after 24 hours if not approved. After that time the child can ask again, the virtual equivalent of saying please over and over again.Family Sharing Don’t spend dollars needlessly. Family Sharing lets the whole family use the same purchased apps, games, books, videos and music. No need to double up on purchases, and it’s simple to set up. Making a child account will automatically add the child to the family group, which enables Family Sharing.When a child account purchase is approved, the whole family gets to take advantage. One thing that can’t be shared through the system is in-app purchases. Any fancy upgrades or levels your child has purchased on one account won’t make their way over to any other.[related-posts]With Family Sharing set up, it might be a good time to consider investing in an Apple Music subscription, which lets family members stream as much music as they like. One of the big advantages the service has over Spotify is the $14.99 per month family subscription tier, which works with up to six accounts over Family Sharing. Of course, the subscription only makes sense if more than one family member listens to a lot of music, otherwise it may be a bit excessive.[MSN]last_img read more

They have amassed 48 league goals so far this season – more than any other side in the Championship.For Derby, midfielder Craig Bryson is expected to be fit, but skipper Richard Keogh (knee) and striker Johnny Russell (cheek) are unavailable.Striker Patrick Bamford, who joined on-loan from Chelsea on Monday, will hope to make his debut.It’s a really tough one – I’m leaning towards the draw but think the safer option is over 2.5 goals.Hopefully, like earlier in the week, the money will be in the bag by half-time again.RECOMMENDED BET (1-10 points)5 points OVER 2.5 GOALS at around 4/5 with Star SportsRUNNING RETURN (JANUARY): -19.50 POINTSWhat’s your view?
