Man cries after being found guilty of theft

first_img Share 12 Views   no discussions LocalNews Man cries after being found guilty of theft by: – September 27, 2013 Share Mario Xavier cried after Magistrate Candia Carette-George informed him that she had found him guilty of theft after listening and considering the facts of the case.Xavier, who pleaded not guilty to stealing $205.00 from an elderly woman cried and asked the court to give him another chance.Magistrate Carette-George, found him guilty although she described the evidence against Xavier as “circumstantial” as no one saw him take the money.Giving a summary of the evidence the magistrate said the elderly woman who Xavier helped in the community had just received some money from the Welfare Division which was still in its envelope.Both parties where in the woman’s kitchen when she turned to get him some water and upon returning to retrieve five dollars from the envelope she found it empty.She proceeded to touch Xavier’s pockets after asking him about the money. He pushed her as she fell down as a result.The elderly woman screamed and a neighbour rushed over to her house. The neighbour asked Xavier what he was doing to her and he ran out of the house.According to the magistrate, Xavier in his defence told the court the money may have been stolen by one of the woman’s children however she said to him his actions were not those of an innocent man.When police came in search of Xavier he jumped from an upstairs window of a house in close proximity.Magistrate Carette-George said, “Based on the evidence…I have to find you guilty of theft.”Xavier told the court he was staying true to the promise he made when bail was granted to him that he would be good.He said his family recently gave him some land and he plans on rearing mixed breed pit bulls to make a living.“I just need a chance to continue to prove myself to you your honour,” he begged while tearing up.He denied having a criminal record however told the magistrate he does not want to go back to jail because he is trying to “elevate” himself from where he was.The magistrate informed him that he spent time on remand for this present matter due to not coming to court on scheduled days for trial and evading the police.“I’ll give you a chance,” she told the convicted thief who was in tears; however she added, “I take it very serious when people take advantage of the elderly”.She handed Xavier a six month jail sentence which she then suspended for two years. He is to also pay compensation to the elderly woman in the amount of $205.00 by October 31; in the event he fails to do that he will spend two months in jail.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Sharing is caring!

Aeroflex Expands Synthetic Instrument Leadership with Compact 7700 Integrated Microwave Test System

first_imgAeroflex Incoporated announced the availability of the 7700 integrated microwave test system. The 7700 is the market’s most complete turnkey ATE (Automated Test Equipment) system-in-a-box designed for rapid production testing of microwave and RF components and modules. The 7700 is a bench-sized instrument that utilizes Aeroflex’s synthetic architecture and Common Platform hardware to achieve fast measurement throughput. “The 7700 is designed to reduce the cost of production test by eliminating multiple test instruments, ATE development cost, and ongoing maintenance. Over time, configuration, software, and maintenance costs are usually much greater than the initial hardware investment,” said Keith Andrews, product manager for synthetic instruments, Aeroflex. The 7700 Integrated Microwave Test System is a complete ATE system within the footprint of a bench instrument. The Aeroflex Measurement Console Test Executive controls all aspects of the production test process, including the DUT (Device Under Test), remote switching hardware, thermal chambers, and more. Using production test sequences provided by the base model, the 7700 provides the functionality and measurements of a vector signal generator, spectrum analyzer, vector network analyzer, oscilloscope, power meter, frequency counter, noise figure meter, and a phase noise analyzer. The 7700’s tight coupling of signal generation, measurements, and DUT control increases measurement throughput significantly over traditional rack-mounted ATE systems. “Customers achieved up to 4X faster throughput using Aeroflex synthetic instruments. We’ve spent many years perfecting our architecture and unique test executive to save customers hundreds of hours writing software and configuring ATE systems,” said Andrews. “The 7700 is quickly configured and redeployed. There’s no need to build a new test system for each new DUT. Customers can test an L-band component in the morning and an S-band module the same afternoon.” Key specifications The 7700 Integrated Microwave Test System has a frequency range of 1 MHz to 6 GHz, with options up to 32 GHz. It includes a complete measurement suite including S-parameters for full characterization of devices such as low noise amplifiers (LNA), variable crystal oscillators (VCO), and transceiver modules. 1.       Key specifications of the 7700 include: 2.       RF modulation bandwidth: 90 MHz 3.       Frequency switching times: <1> 4.       Phase noise (2 GHz, 20 kHz offset): -115 dBm 5.       Residual noise floor: <-120> 6.       Dynamic range: >100 dBlast_img read more

Nishikori captures Japan Open title

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Having a banner year: Kei Nishikori reaches for the ball during the Rakuten Japan Open final on Sunday. Nishikori won the match to earn his fourth ATP Tour title of the season. | AP KEYWORDS Kei Nishikori, Rakuten Japan Open, Milos Raonic GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Even a typhoon bearing down on Tokyo could not stop the tennis faithful from making the trek to Ariake Colosseum on Sunday afternoon to watch national hero Kei Nishikori go for his fourth ATP Tour title of the season.They weren’t disappointed by coming out.center_img Outgunned: Beaten Rakuten Japan Open finalist Milos Raonic hits a shot during Sunday’s match at Ariake Colosseum. | AP RELATED PHOTOS There’s no place like home: Kei Nishikori poses with the winner’s trophy after his 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-4 victory over Milos Raonic in the final round of the Rakuten Japan Open on Sunday. | AFP-JIJI The 24-year-old star won his second straight tournament and the seventh of his career with a 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-4 victory over Canada’s Milos Raonic in the final of the Rakuten Japan Open before a crowd of 11,893.It was a contest marked by a contrast in styles, with Raonic relying primarily on his big serve, while Nishikori utilized his superior speed and mobility to force his opponent into many unforced errors.Raonic had 22 aces in an affair that featured few long rallies, while Nishikori managed just one.Sunday’s battle was a rematch of the 2012 tournament here when Nishikori beat Raonic in three sets in the final to become the first Japanese man to win the event.The Shimane native, currently ranked seventh in the world, has now won titles this season in Memphis, Barcelona and Kuala Lumpur and made the final of the U.S. Open and Madrid Open.“It was great to win today,” said Nishikori. “It was hard to return against him. He was serving really well, with a high percentage and speed.”Nishikori felt taking the first set was crucial.“Luckily I got the tiebreak in the first,” he said. “That really helped motivate me the rest of the way. If I had lost that it could have been tough.”This marked the third straight year that Raonic made the final here. He lost to Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina in 2012.“It’s disappointing to lose again in the final,” noted Raonic. “The last two years have been more disappointing than the first one against Kei.”The first set was on serve until the tiebreaker, when Nishikori took a 4-2 lead, only to see Raonic run off three straight points to go up 5-4.The fourth-seeded Nishikori took the set on an amazing save of Raonic’s serve, followed by a powerful crosscourt forehand.Raonic, the third seed, had break points in the first and fifth games of the second set, but could not capitalize. He finally broke to lead 4-3 and took the set on serve with an ace.Raonic, ranked eighth, saved three break points in the second game of the final set, but was unable to convert when had one of his own in the seventh.Nishikori clinched the match by breaking in the 10th game when the Canadian netted a return.“I started off poorly in the last game,” said Raonic. “I don’t think I did anything wrong, he just played better in the key moments.”The victory puts Nishikori in good position to become the first Asian man to qualify for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in London in November. That event features the top eight-ranked players in the world. Nishikori is currently fifth in the standings.With the top two seeds, Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland and David Ferrer of Spain losing in the first round, neither Nishikori or Raonic faced a seeded player on the way to the final.There was another historic first for Nishikori on Sunday.“This was my first time to win two weeks in a row, so that means a lot,” he stated.An emotional Nishikori went into the stands after the win to celebrate with coaches Michael Chang and Dante Bottini.In his post-match victory speech on court, Nishikori saluted the effort of Raonic in defeat and pointed out their collective futures are bright.“We are both young guys,” Nishikori said. “I think we are going to get to the top five soon.” last_img read more

Quins boss targets ‘flying start’ to European campaign

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Embed from Getty ImagesHarlequins can make a real impact in this year’s European Champions Cup, according to boss John Kingston.Quins have suffered a stuttering start to their Aviva Premiership campaign, losing three of their opening five fixtures before Friday night’s encouraging 42-26 victory over Sale Sharks at The Stoop.AdChoices广告And their injury woes increased when Jack Clifford had to be helped from the field with a dislocated shoulder, which is likely to sideline the influential back rower for weeks.But Kingston believes the thrill of competing in Europe’s elite cup competition after a three-year absence will galvanise his team and that they will be fully focused when they begin their campaign at home to La Rochelle next weekend.Embed from Getty ImagesWasps and Ulster are also in a competitive looking pool.“We will try and win it,” Quins’ director of rugby Kingston said.“Is it realistic? I don’t know, but somebody’s got to win it, and on our day we’re capable of beating anybody. There’s no point in going into competitions unless you want to try to win it.“Everybody dreams about winning a competition like that, it’s why you try to get in there. We worked incredibly hard last year to get there, and one thing you won’t see Harlequins do is think about the Premiership for the next few weeks.“We’ll be thinking about La Rochelle Saturday night and we need to get ourselves off to a flying start in the competition, and it’s where our focus will be all week.”Kingston added: “We made the quarter-finals a couple of times in my time here and didn’t get that next step further, and it would be fantastic to be able to get ourselves through an incredibly difficult group.“As much as we know that it’s a difficult group for us, I don’t think the other teams would have been happy when we dropped into their group.“It’s going to be a massive contest over the course of the coming weeks and I can’t wait. I’m really, really looking forward to it and I’m sure everyone at Harlequins is.“The fans deserve occasions like next week and they’ll be looking forward to it. It’s a long time since we played a Champions Cup game.”last_img read more

I also like the “RC-Paw” secondary.* That said, while Rocky’s tail says “Rock Cats”, his partially-hidden face and ears strike me as saying “Rock Rats”. Maybe it’s just me.While it’s better than what they had, I don’t think it’s a “home-run”. More of a solid “stand-up double”. 283 posts Members 2,305 Link to post 79 0 Here’s what they have now:Dunno.

I hate that dumb Elvis cat looking thing, and I hate the name Rock Cats. So dumb its scary. The commercials are even worse “The New Britian Rock Cats…these cats ROCK!” anything having to do with Rocking or Rolling or anything of that nature is so archaic. Its like anytime I see some washed up rock band get up on stage and say “Do you wanna Rock?” I just think how old that makes them sound. Rock is dead, get over it and move on. Hopefully they won’t call them the “Rappin’ Pussies” or something. Better than what they have now, but I can do without the whole ‘cat’ thing. Its a little annoying if you ask me.
