The 38th running of the Burger King Superstakes over 2000 metres will take the spotlight at Caymanas Park today. Billed as ‘A Day with the King and his Horses’, the nine-horse field for the prestigious invitational race with a purse of $4.5 million includes last year’s winner FRANFIELD with top apprentice Bebeto Harvey riding for trainer Richard Azan; two-time winner TYPEWRITER to be ridden by Robert Halledeen for trainer Spencer Chung, as well as the reigning “Horse of the Year’ SEEKING MY DREAM with leading jockey Omar Walker again riding for 15-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, stable-companion PERFECT NEIGHBOUR with Orlando Foster aboard and this year’s St. Leger winner BIGDADDYKOOL with champion apprentice Linton Steadman riding for topline trainer Anthony “Baba’ Nunes. The above mentioned horses should ensure a highly competitive race and the winner is sure to emerge from this group. All have looked sharp in their preparation, especially SEEKING MY DREAM and the three-year-old gelding BIGDADDYKOOL, both of whom have already won over the distance this season, BIGDADDYKOOL winning both the St. Leger and Lotto Classic (Governor’s Cup) over same and having improved, could make it close. HOPING FOR THE BEST FRANFIELD, who won the Governor General’s Stakes over the distance by four lengths from PERFECT NEIGHBOUR, is also in good nick for the race and Azan is hoping for the best. He is quietly confident: “He won convincingly a year ago, is a better horse this year having beaten Seeking My Dream in the Chairman’s Trophy in March and Perfect Neighbour in the GG Stakes. He is not only fit but has a lot of heart and I am expecting another big run from him,” said Azan, who has won the Superstakes a record nine times, including four in a row with MENUDO (1999-2002). For me, however, the choice has to be SEEKING MY DREAM now that his main rivals are sitting level with him in the scales. The class horse of the field, SEEKING MY DREAM should at last provide DaCosta with that elusive success in the only major race he is yet to win in a career spanning 40 years. Owned by Member of Parliament Derrick Smith, the 4-y-o colt by Seeking The Glory out of the 2008 “Horse of the Year” Alsafra notched his last win over the distance in the Prime Minister’s Stakes on August 6 under topweight of 57.0kg, and although humbled by top sprinter BUZZ NIGHTMARE In the recent Gold Cup over 1400 metres, has worked impressively for today’s assignment. Elsewhere on the 12-race programme, the Philip Feanny-trained BUZZ NIGHTMARE looks a cinch for the GLEN MILLS O.D. Caribbean Sprint, while it should be the Nunes-trained HOUDINI’S MAGIC ahead of old rival BRAWN in the Coco Cola Invitational Mile. Post time 11:00 a.m.
A carer has pleaded guilty to stealing a total of €20,000 from an elderly woman whom she helped look after.Marjorie Gallagher appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court in Co Donegal charged with four thefts of €5,000 from 76-year-old Bridget McLaughlin. All the alleged thefts took place at the home of Ms McLaughlin of Meenmore in Dungloe.The accused woman, a 56-year-old from Maghery in Dungloe, only spoke to plead guilty to the thefts which took place between January 1st, 2016 and September 4th, 2018.No specific details of the thefts were given during the arraignment of the accused woman.Barrister for Gallagher, Mr Shane Costello, told the court that this was not a straight forward theft case.“The facts of this case are very odd and there are issues in the background that are extraordinary,” he said.He explained that Ms Gallagher had been a home-carer for Ms McLaughlin and that the thefts took place in a relatively short space of time.He asked for both a psychiatric and psychological assessment be carried out on his client as well as a probation an community service report.Ms Patricia McLaughlin, prosecution barrister, explained to Judge John Aylmer that the victim in the case was a terminally ill woman and that they were anxious to compile a victim impact statement in the case.Judge Aylmer adjourned the case until the next sitting of Letterkenny Circuit Court in November when Gallagher will be sentenced.Carer pleads guilty to stealing €20,000 from elderly woman was last modified: July 24th, 2019 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:Bridget McLaughlincarercourtdungloeMarjorie Galaghertheft
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A case of H3N2 Swine Flu has been lab confirmed in one hog at the Clinton County Fair. There are no human cases at this time. The Clinton County Fair Board is working with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, the Clinton County Agricultural Society along with local and state health officials to stop further spread of this virus in the animal population. By Friday morning, July 14, 2017, all swine will have been removed from the Clinton County Fairgrounds.“July 12, a pig at the Clinton County fair tested positive for H3N2, a zoonotic disease that can be transferred between animals and humans,” said Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) Spokesman Mark Bruce. “July 13th, additional animals in the barn showed clinical signs of illness and out of an abundance of caution to the general public and Ohio’s livestock population, ODA placed a quarantine on the hog barn. Only exhibitors and their parents were allowed into the building.”Swine Flu, like any flu virus can be spread, although rare, from pigs to people. Spread of swine flu viruses from pigs to people is thought to happen the same way that human flu viruses are spread, mainly through droplets when infected pigs cough or sneeze.“If you have been in contact with swine and are experiencing signs and symptoms of flu-like illness, please consult your medical provider,” said Dr. Terry Holten, Clinton County Health District Medical Director. “Especially if you are high risk which includes children under 5 years, those with long term health conditions, like asthma and other lung diseases, diabetes, heart disease, weakened immune systems, as well as pregnant women and people 65 years and older.”The Clinton County Fair remains open to the public. As with any pet or livestock contact, visitors should continue to wash their hands after petting animals and before eating. Sanitizing stations are available throughout the Clinton County Fairgrounds.The swine show was deemed a terminal show, meaning all animals will now be sent to a slaughter facility and not be allowed to return to their home farm, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Finance#news#social networks#Social Web#web mike melanson If social networking around where and how you spend your money isn’t your bag, then Swipely will likely make as little sense to you as Blippy, but it appears to make a lot of sense to some big names in the world of investors and backers.Swipely has launched as a invitation-only beta service right now and, according to Venture Beat, is “more than just a Blippy clone.”The site proclaims to “turn purchases into conversations” by pulling in all of your credit card purchases, and even other purchases and taken from emailed receipts, and sharing them with friends. The primary difference from Blippy is that Swipely does not share the precise amounts of each purchase, likely soothing some of the privacy concerns that some would have over this service. While we’re still somewhat confused by who would want to share everything they buy with the world, we’re obviously not the target audience and there is a group of people who agree that this is something people want to do – to the tune of $8.5 million. The start-up currently has backing from several investors, including “well-known angel investors Chris Sacca of Lowercase Capital, Keith Rabois of Slide, former Mint.com vice president Anton Commissaris, and prolific angel investor Ron Conway”. Swipely asserts that “every swipe tells a story” and this we can agree with, but we have one question – do we really want to tell that story? Then again, some might see their location as far more private information than what they’re spending their money on and have the same argument over location-based check-in apps like Foursquare and Gowalla. For my money, sharing based around purchases is an odd approach to the world and to social networking. Then again, I’m not much of a consumer and don’t really see my identity as comprised of what I buy and where I spend my money. For others – people who like collecting purses and shoes or eating at fancy restaurants around town and telling their friends about it – Swipely could be the perfect way to strut their stuff. I have to say, though, that the second I start seeing what they bought when and where show up in my Facebook stream, they’re getting the block. I just couldn’t care less.In the end, we’re willing to bet that this will hit a niche market, but likely miss the mark when it comes to the general population.And if you’re of the Swipely mindset, then keep an eye out for Marshall Kirkpatrick’s explanation later today of why Swipely is more interesting than I believe it to be.Swipely from Swipely on Vimeo.
