Former AG Bernard De Santos hailed as legal luminary

first_imgTributes and condolence messages have been pouring in following the passing of former Attorney General Bernard De Santos on Friday evening.Former Attorney General Bernard De Santos, SCDe Santos was 80 at the time of his passing. He was appointed Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration following the October 5, 1992 elections.After serving in those positions for five years, Senior Counsel De Santos returned to his illustrious private practice.On Saturday, President David Granger, in a brief statement, extended condolences at the passing of De Santos. He was joined by former President and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, who on behalf of the PPP/C, also offered his heartfelt sympathy to the family, relatives, and friends of the former AG.Meanwhile, PPP Executive Member Anil Nandlall, also a former Attorney General, took to his social media page to express his sadness at the passing of De Santos.“I awoke this morning to the tragic news that Bernard Celestino De Santos, SC, has departed this world. That we have lost a towering giant, who has distinguished himself at both the criminal and civil bar over the last 40 years, is to merely state a truism. Like every one of those of his pre-eminent ilk, his was a style unique to him and carefully chiselled to coincide with his effervescent personality: it was an admixture of intellect, charm, elegance and smooth but emphatic aggression when necessary,” Nandlall stated.According to Nandlall, “Only a few weeks ago, he gifted me a red tie which he insisted that I wear when Parliament resumes. I certainly am privileged to have known such a giant and will surely miss him. Rest in peace, Celestino!!”In addition, Attorney-at-Law Sanjeev Datadin also hailed De Santos in a post on his Facebook page.“…the world stands still for you. A legend in your own time; there was no better “storyteller” in the legal profession. Thank you for showing me the ropes of the profession when I started and for starting me on the path which I am on today. Say it ain’t so, Gringo. I can’t believe you have gone home… RIP Gringo…” Datadin said.Meanwhile, the Bar Council of the Guyana Bar Association in a statement said the legal fraternity is mourning the loss of one of its stalwarts.“Mr De Santos was one of the leading Senior Counsels in the country and, while he was an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer in every field of practice, his specialty was in the field of criminal law, and more especially in jury trials of the most serious offences. He was also an expert at cross-examination and could often be seen in the courtroom skilfully and patiently breaking down the evidence of witnesses opposing his clients’ cases,” the statement outlined.According to the Bar Council, De Santos was also a gifted raconteur and was frequently at the centre of a group of lawyers on the courthouse corridors, as he regaled them with stories of cases and judges from days gone by.“He was kind and patient with younger lawyers and he mentored many junior lawyers who were new to intricacies of the profession. Mr De Santos’s passing leaves a vacuum in the profession and he will be sorely missed. The Bar Council extends its deepest condolences to the family of Mr Bernard De Santos,” the missive stated.last_img read more

Returning Bale rescues Real from Al Jazira upset

first_imgMadrid’s pressure finally paid off 10 minutes into the second half when Cristiano Ronaldo levelled before Bale broke Al Jazira’s resistence with his first touch eight minutes from time.“It’s great to get the goal,” Bale told Real Madrid TV. “When you come on you want to make an impact, but the most important thing is to win and be in the final.”Real will go for their fifth trophy of the year when they face Brazilian side Gremio on Saturday.Bale was making only his second substitute appearance since September due to a series of muscle injuries.But he showed what Madrid have been missing for most of the season with a calm finish after replacing the profligate Karim Benzema.“I need to be patient, I’ve had some problems and it takes time. I need to listen to my body,” said the Welshman.Al Jazira, only invited to the competition as champions of the host country, enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame at the break after a remarkable first 45 minutes.Madrid scored five in the first half against Sevilla on Saturday and could easily have had another handful but for some exceptional goalkeeping from Ali Khaseif.The Al Jazira captain made an incredible stop to turn a deflected Ronaldo header onto the bar then got down well to parry efforts from Luka Modric and Karim Benzema.– VAR chaos –Benzema also had a goal ruled out for a push by Ronaldo in the build-up, but Madrid thought they had finally gone ahead when Casemiro’s header deflected off an Al Jazira head and looped over Khaseif.However, after a four-minute delay for the VAR referral, Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci disallowed the goal due to Benzema being in an offside position despite the fact the Frenchman was arguably not interfering with play.“I don’t like it to be honest,” added Bale on the use of VAR.“Obviously they are going to try it out. For me, football is better without it but it is other people who make the decisions.”In total Madrid had 18 shots on goal in the first half, but were shocked four minutes before the break when the hosts caught the Real defence cold on the counter-attack.A poor clearance from Nacho gifted away possession inside the Madrid half and Romarinho showed great composure to cut inside and curl his shot inside Keylor Navas’ far post.A monumental upset looked on when Al Jazira had the ball in the net for a second time two minutes into the second half.However, this time VAR came to Madrid’s rescue as Mbark Boussoufa was offside by the finest of margins before slotting home.Zinedine Zidane’s men grabbed that let-off gratefully and were level eight minutes later when Ronaldo was played in by Modric and smashed a shot past Khaled Al Senaani, who had replaced the injured Khaseif moments earlier.Madrid continued to lay seige to the Al Jazira goal, but the misfiring Benzema shot straight at Al Senaani then hit the post with two other glorious chances.Benzema was eventually replaced by Bale, who an instant impact as he slotted home Lucas Vazquez’s cutback to Real’s relief.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Real Madrid’s Welsh forward Gareth Bale (L) is congratulated after scoring by teammate Spanish forward Lucas Vazquez (R) during their match against Al Jazira in the Emirati capital Abu Dhabi on December 13, 2017 © AFP/File / GIUSEPPE CACACEABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Dec 13 – Gareth Bale came off the bench to book Real Madrid’s place in the Club World Cup final as the European champions recovered from the shock of going behind to beat Emirati champions Al Jazira 2-1 on Wednesday.Despite dominating throughout, Madrid trailed at half-time to Romarinho’s opener in a match also marred by use of the video assistant referee (VAR) that ruled out a goal for both sides.last_img read more

WHAT A DAY AND NIGHT FOR DONEGAL AND TYRONE FARMERS HUNT

first_imgThe inaugural Shane Brolly Memorial hunt will become the perpetual Shane Brolly hunt judging by the success of last weekend’s event.Over 60 horses ponies & riders with even more followers turned out to share a minutes silence called for by Shanes fellow huntsman and neighbour Simon Scott. There was a fabulous days hunting through Shanes homeland with natural jump after jump snaking our way all the way to the Steeple and back and the man above kept the rain off for three unforgettable hours on horseback.What a long way the hunt has come in a very short time . Week after week the building team has been inspired by ever increasing turnouts to deliver engaging courses at incredibly beautiful venues facilitated time and time again by landowners who have gone the extra mile to make us feel warmly welcomed everywhere we went not only letting us through good land in poor weather conditions but feeding the building team in their kitchens with lovely soup and fresh scones in the days leading up to hunt meets.What has been superb has been the way the hunt has grown into such a warm cohesive social network where riders from 9 to 90 years with varying abilities from total beginners right through to Grand Prix riders have gelled to encourage tease cajole and “give leads” to get every rider a great day in the saddle and more importantly home safe.The fuel for this hunt is the ever growing network of foot followers and photographers who turn out to support us and share & capture the “thrills n spills”. With horses and ponies fed and stabled we made our way to the end of season “Hooley in Friels”. We said we would set Friels a rockin and we did!With a turnout of 150 people Friels turned out a veritable feast of a buffet before a lively raffle was held with a great range of prizes which hunt Chairman Leslie Goudie had secured from a number of local businesses to each of whom the hunt is very grateful.Huntsman Simon Scott stood forward and paid tribute to Shane in a heart rending address and invited Shanes parents Michael & Patricia forward to receive a portrait of Shane on horseback which the hunt had commissioned from local equestrian artist Marina Hamilton to a respectful standing ovation.Men in Black fired up and Ronnie & Majella hit the floor and the younger riders jaws dropped and the Donegal & Tyrone Farmers hunts answer to Torville & Dean lit the fuse with a display of jiving that brought the crowd to the floor which never emptied til long after Men in Black followed by DJ John on the decks had finished their sets.The hunt would like to thank Friels of Raphoe for the great hospitality on what was a night to remember. Working tirelessly in the background all season guiding us, motivating us, keeping us in line and above all keeping the finances of the hunt going on the correct trajectory has been our unsung hero hunt chairman Leslie Goudie.Everyone would like to express our sincere thanks to Leslie who was man enough when the tide was at it lowest ebb to carefully pick & put a team together behind Simon and drive the Donegal & Tyrone Famers hunt forward from a difficult standing start to the vibrant dynamic friendly hunt it is today. As we all return to our “normal lives” in the hunting “off season” we wish to thank every single person who has assisted us on our journey to date and we can absolutely promise you that we are already working hard planning to make the 2014/15 hunt season an even bigger success and will be announcing plans within the next 2 months in this regard.WHAT A DAY AND NIGHT FOR DONEGAL AND TYRONE FARMERS HUNT was last modified: February 25th, 2014 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:Donegal and Tyrone Farmers Huntlast_img read more

SAN JOSE – Nike Inc. and Apple Computer Inc. have teamed up to try to become a runner’s best friend. The two companies announced Tuesday they are jointly developing a wireless system so some Nike shoes embedded with a sensor can communicate with Apple’s iPod Nano music player to track a runner’s performance and help choreograph songs to the moment. The Nike+iPod Sport Kit, which will be available in two months at $29, has already won an endorsement from Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, who plans to run his first New York marathon later this year. “It will take working out to a whole other level,” said Armstrong, who appeared at the companies’ news conference in New York City. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2The co-branded kit comes with a sensor that fits inside compatible Nike footwear – sold separately – and a wireless receiver that attaches to the iPod. Data on running time, distance, pace and calories burned would be stored on the iPod, which could then display the information on-screen or deliver it audibly through headphones. After the workout, the data also could be automatically sent to a personal runner’s log at the new nikeplus.com Web site whenever the music player is synchronized to Apple’s iTunes program. The iPod will also incorporate a new “Power Song” feature, so a user can instantly queue up a piece of music for extra motivation at the push of a button. The $100 Nike+ Air Zoom Moire shoe will be the first footwear designed to talk to the iPod, and more are planned, said Trevor Edwards, Nike’s vice president of global brand management.last_img read more
