Police on the Corentyne, Berbice are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a farmer, whose body was discovered along the Corentyne Highway on Monday morning.Dead is Marlon Cox, 40, a farmer of Tain Village, Corentyne. Cox is a former Police traffic rank in the Guyana Police Force.The discovery of the body was made about 03:30h at Kilmarnock along the Central Corentyne Coast. The body bore marks of violence.Police said the injuries to the right hand and head are consistent with thoseDead: Marlon Coxsustained in motor vehicular accident.The dead man’s brother, Shackier Cox, who identified the body, is of the belief that his brother may have been attempting to cross the road when he was hit. His theory is based on the position the body was in when it was discovered.He is also of the view that his brother was hit by a huge vehicle. There was no broken glass at the accident scene.“I believe is a truck hit he down and drive away, because any other vehicle woulda smash up or had some glass or number plate on the road… Not even brakes impression,” he said.The body is currently at the New Amsterdam Hospital Mortuary awaiting a post-mortem examination.Police are of the belief that Cox’s death is as a result of a hit-and-run accident.Cox, who planted cash crops at Whim for the past 17-years, had also been working as a labourer for another farmer in the same community.Up to press time, no one had been arrested in relation to the incident.
United States oil giant ExxonMobil has made two more oil finds offshore Guyana, bringing the total number of discoveries in the Stabroek Block to 12.The discoveries, which were made at the Tilapia-1 and Haimara-1 wells in the South-west section of the Stabroek Block, were announced by Director of Energy, Dr Mark Bynoe, in a statement on Wednesday. The US-based company also confirmed the finds on its Facebook page.This new discovery, he said, reinforces the country’s potential to be able to produce more than 750,000 barrels of oil daily by 2025 with at least five floating, production storage and offloading vessels (FPSO) on the Stabroek Block.According to Dr Bynoe, “this continues to be positive news for the people of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, but the real substance of these finds will come when all Guyanese are able to benefit from these discoveries, whether directly and/or indirectly.”The US oil giant’s 11th discovery in the Tilapia-1 well is the fourth discovery in the Turbot area that includes Turbot, Longtail and Pluma discoveries. Tilapia-1 encountered approximately 305 feet (93 metres) of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoir and was drilled to a depth of 18,786 feet (5726 metres) in 5850 feet (1783 metres) of water. The well is located approximately 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometres) West of the Longtail-1 well.Dr Bynoe noted that the Noble Tom Madden drillship started drilling the well on January 7, 2019 and will next drill the Yellowtail-1 well, approximately six miles (10 kilometres) West of Tilapia-1 in the Turbot area. Baseline 4-D seismic data acquisition is underway, he added.Meanwhile, the 12th discovery was at the Haimara-1 well which encountered approximately 207 feet (63 metres) of high-quality gas condensate-bearing sandstone reservoir. The well was drilled to a depth of 18,289 feet (5575 metres) in 4590 feet (1399 metres) of water. The Director of Energy pointed out that being located approximately 19 miles (31 kilometres) East of the Pluma-1 discovery, the Haimara-1 is deemed a potential new area for development.Furthermore, he added that the Stena Carron drillship began drilling the well on January 3, 2019.These two discoveries come less than two months after ExxonMobil announced its 10th find back in December at the Pluma-1 well, which had increased the estimated recoverable resource for the Stabroek Block to more than five billion oil-equivalent barrels.Guyana is now home to the world’s biggest new deepwater oil discovery. ExxonMobil has been keen to push development of the oil reserves and is expected to commence production sometime later this year or early 2020.

However, he has played a huge part in the Blues run to the Europa League final and is the joint top scorer in this season’s competition with 10 goals.“I always like playing against my old teams,” Giroud, won three FA Cups in five-and-a-half years at Arsenal, told the Daily Mail.“It’s going to be tough, and it could be painful if it’s not going the right way, but you have to put the feelings and memories aside.“I enjoyed the years I spent there. It has been a big part of my career, my first club in England and it will always be special, but now I feel my blood is blue. The same as the national team, blue suits me well.”Giroud, who on Tuesday signed a one-year contract extension with the Blues, says he found no problem in fitting in with his Chelsea team-mates following his reported £18million ($22.9 million) transfer.“I settled in quickly. I felt like part of the family straight away,” said Giroud.“I knew a few of the players and I’m a sociable person, I always try to communicate.”Giroud believes there is a more cut-throat culture at his new club compared to the Gunners and part of the reason why Chelsea have outstripped Arsenal for silverware over the past decade.“Maybe you would get more time at Arsenal. They would be more patient,” he added.“At Chelsea you have to be ready quickly because in terms of trophies it has been the best club in England for the last 10 years.“You don’t have time at Chelsea and when you are young it is quite difficult to find your place.“I don’t want to kill the dreams of these young Chelsea players.“They are very talented, but it makes sense because Chelsea invest more in every transfer window and they buy more top players in the world who are more experienced.”Giroud has scored 17 goals in 62 appearances for Chelsea since joining in January 2018, but has largely been used as an understudy to Gonzalo Higuain since Alvaro Morata’s loan move to Atletico Madrid.Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “We are very pleased that Olivier will be a Chelsea player for another season. “Since joining us 18 months ago, he has at times had to be patient and wait for opportunities, but has still been able to make a positive contribution to the team.“Whether it is his unselfish link-up play or his 10 Europa League goals this season, he has been a crucial member of the squad and we hope he will be able to pick up a second Chelsea winner’s medal in Baku later this month to accompany last season’s FA Cup win.”With Chelsea still facing a two-window transfer ban, subject to an appeal before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the club were keen to retain Giroud to ensure Sarri has attacking options next term.Higuain is set to return to Juventus after a disappointing loan, while Chelsea’s Belgian winger Eden Hazard is being heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Olivier Giroud says blue blood is running through his veins now as Chelsea prepare to play his old club Arsenal in the Europa League final © AFP / Ben STANSALLLondon, United Kingdom, May 21 – Olivier Giroud is relishing the prospect of beating his old Arsenal team-mates when he lines up for Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku on May 29.The 32-year-old French World Cup winner’s move across London 18 months ago has failed to deliver the regular first team football he hoped after falling behind compatriot Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the pecking order at Arsenal.

DONEGAL County Council officials are examining how they can ban cars from Rossnowlagh beach – and other beaches – before the next heat wave hits the county at the end of next week.Forecasters say more hot weather come be on the way as early as next Wednesday and there are already fears of a repeat of the chaos at some beaches last weekend.Hundreds of cars packed on to Rossnowlagh, and tempers flared as all the motorists tried to leave at once. And they left a mountain of rubbish behind them, which council staff had to clear on Monday.Cllr Terence Slowey says something has to be done to prevent a repeat of the fiasco.“We have a car ban at Narn and Portnoo beach and it works very well,” he said.“I’ve heard so many complaints about Sunday in Rossnowlagh and I was struck by one parent who said one motorist was furious because a child ran out in front of him. “If a child can’t run free on a beach it is a very sorry state of affairs; that’s the last place any child should have to confront a vehicle.”He said he would welcome any use of bye-laws which could close access to the beach for motorists.“We need to do something about it,” said Cllr Slowey, left.“We have the best beaches in the world here in Donegal and they must be protected so that people can use them without fear of being run over by a car.“I saw the picture of the cars on the beach last Sunday and frankly it looked more like an airport car park.” CARS COULD FACE BAN FROM ROSSNOWLAGH BEFORE NEXT HEAT WAVE ARRIVES was last modified: June 12th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:CARS COULD FACE BAN FROM ROSSNOWLAGH BEFORE NEXT HEAT WAVE ARRIVES
