Two dead after car crash in Inverness, Scotland

   Posted by:    in Uncategorized

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Two people have died as the result of a one-vehicle road traffic accident in Inverness, Scotland. The two occupants of the vehicle were both teenagers, with one being male and the other being female. Neither have been publicly identified.

They were both travelling in a black Škoda Fabia vRS at approximately 0920 BST on Sunday when they attempted to negotiate a corner and ended up colliding with a stone wall and a tree, according to witnesses. One bystander stated that the vehicle also impacted into a street light. According to a report from a person who sighted the collision: “The car destroyed a lamp-post and then demolished a 12 inch thick wall scattering huge chunks of stone and sending one big piece 20 metres down the road. The car then appears to have carried on into the garden and hit a big pine tree.”

After the emergency services arrived at the scene of the collision, the road was occluded, during which time members of the fire service physically removed the bodies of the teenagers from the remains of the Škoda. They were then transported to Raigmore Hospital. According to a statement from a spokesperson for the Northern Constabulary: “Following a single vehicle road traffic collision at approximately 9.18 on Sunday morning on Islandbank Road, Inverness, one young man and one young female suffered fatal injuries.”

Scottish Midlothian car crash kills three

   Posted by:    in Uncategorized

Monday, December 24, 2012

Two cars have been involved in a road traffic accident in the Scottish Lothian and Borders region, causing three fatalities and sending three to hospital. The incident occurred on the A68 road approximately 1.5 miles south of the Midlothian village of Pathhead when a Škoda Octavia and a Nissan Note travelling in opposite directions collided at approximately 0730 UTC today.

The Nissan, which was carrying five occupants, overturned and came to rest on its roof. Three male Buddhist monks who sat in the back of the car died at the site of the crash. The female driver of the vehicle managed to get out of the vehicle herself but another male passenger in the front of the car had to be cut free by fire service members. The two front-seat passengers as well as the male driver of the Škoda were hospitalised at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, although none of their injuries are considered likely to be fatal.

“This is a tragic incident,” Inspector Simon Bradshaw of Lothian and Borders Police said, “and we are currently in the process of carrying out inquiries in order to establish the full circumstances of the collision.” The A68 road close to the location of the accident was temporarily closed to allow police to investigate the incident, with traffic redirected to the B6370 road via the town of Gorebridge. The road has since reopened.

It’s a sad truth that in this day and age, when someone creates something innovative and successful then others will try to copy it. Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel etc are just a few of the international luxury brands that have to contend with Far Eastern counterfeits flooding the market place. David Yurman is another luxury brand that suffers from this problem and despite some efforts from the authorities the reality is that it’s up to the consumer to help to combat the growing trend in counterfeit goods.

It’s a sobering thought but it’s one which can’t be avoided and that is that many consumers knowingly buy fake goods. In the case of David Yurman, perhaps they do so because they admire his jewelry yet either can’t, or don’t want to, buy the originals.

Go to Ebay and you will find a large number of David Yurman cable bracelets which are fake. They’re clearly counterfeit made obvious by the low prices they retail for as well as inferior materials and poor hallmarking.

In many ways this is a false economy as when you buy counterfeit goods you are purely and simply paying for the designer name. At least when you buy the original, although you’re still paying a premium for the designer name, you know you’re getting a luxury item that has been designed to the highest standards and made with the finest materials, in other words, the genuine item is a quality one whereas the counterfeit one is cheaply made.An original David Yurman will be crafted from sterling silver or 18 karat gold, a counterfeit will most probably be fro

There’s another good reason for people not to buy counterfeit David Yurman jewelry which is that if you buy a fake piece and wear it proudly you’re running the risk of your friends and colleagues recognising the jewelry as a fake which could be extremely embarrassing for the wearer. It’s far better to own a genuine David Yurman even if it happens to be one of his lower priced creations than to own a fake piece of jewelry that’s been badly made to look like one of Yurman’s expensive designs!

The other reality is that people are involuntarily buying fake David Yurman jewelry. This can only be done through certain avenues which, in a way, makes it easier to identify or at least suspect that the item in question is counterfeit.

Original David Yurman (DY) jewelry is sold via official DY store boutiques across the country or store concessions or via a small number of outlet stores.

There is also the official DY online store as well as a handful of reputable online jewelers who stock the collection.

eBay is also a great source for picking up some genuine DY jewellery at discounted prices due to the fact that eBay is a marketplace for pre-owned items. Ordinarily, it would be very difficult to source pre-owned jewelry offline but with eBay it’s very easy.

eBay is also a place that attracts counterfeit goods like moths to a flame and this is something you need to be aware of but with a bit of common sense you should be able to avoid buying a fake item.

1/ If the price is too good to be true then it usually is. In other words, if a silver David Yurman bracelet that retails everywhere else for $ 5000 appears on eBay with an asking price of $ 150 then alarm bells should be ringing with you.

2/ Examine the photos of the listing. Are they home made photos or has the seller taken photos from the internet and just pasted them into their listings. Home made photos are fairly easy to identify as they don’t look that professional i.e. may be taken on the dining room table or on the carpet. Home made photos suggest the item is more likely to be genuine although you need to take other factors into consideration

3/ A genuine piece of David Yurman jewelry will be sold with a certificate of authenticity. If the seller can provide this then there’s a good chance they’re selling a genuine item.

4/ Check the hallmarks. They should be stamped “David Yurman”. Are they crisp and neat or jagged and a little rough looking?

Hopefully, our guide will help you to avoid buying cheap, fake David Yurman jewelry as you will only end up disappointed in the long run.

New South Wales government starts trial of hunting in national parks

   Posted by:    in Uncategorized

Monday, February 17, 2014

On Friday afternoon, amateur shooters were briefed about a three-year-long trial of hunting in national parks of New South Wales, Australia. The meeting was held in Griffith near Cocopara Nature Reserve, where the first shooting operation of the trial was to occur on Saturday, targeting the feral goats.

The National Parks Wildlife Service (NPWS) has used aerial culls and baiting to reduce Cocoparra’s goat population, but there are said to be thousands of goats at the reserve. The feral animals to be hunted in other reserves may include cats, deer, dogs, and pigs, beside goats — depending on the reserve.

Shooters in the supplementary pest control trial were to be closely supervised by rangers, as the trial was monitored and its effectiveness evaluated. In a partnership of NPWS and the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (NSW) Inc, qualified volunteers were recruited, under the Sporting Shooters Association’s hunting program. According to Mick O’Flynn, the Acting Director Park Conservation and Heritage with the NPWS, the four shooters selected for the first shooting operation received comprehensive safety and training instruction.

Following announcement of the close partnership of shooters with NWPS staff, the Greens cancelled planned picketing of the first shooting operation. However, State Greens MP (Member of Parliament) David Shoebridge warned, “This needs to be a government-run program, not run by the biggest gun lobby group in Australia”. He called limiting the meeting to members of the Sporting Shooters Association “outrageous”. Another concern raised by the Greens was the danger of armed people, not only to animals, but also to people visiting the national parks, should the shooters be unsupervised after the trial.

The trial was announced in the second half of 2013, though the plan has been significantly modified over time and has come to be regulated under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, in contrast with the original proposal of recreational hunting in national parks, as it was announced in May 2012 by New South Wales Premier Barry O’Farrell. This amendment of the Game and Feral Animal Control Act was part of a deal with the Shooters and Fishers Party. The government needed at least one vote from a Shooters and Fishers Party MP to pass electricity privatisation legislation, as both Labor and Greens opposed it. O’Farrell’s plans to allow pest control by licensed individuals called for licencing by the Game Council of New South Wales.

Following a report sharply criticizing the Game Council, the government dissolved it in mid-2013, suspended hunting on public lands, and reconsidered the plan to allow amateur hunters into national parks — thus breaking the earlier promise to the Shooters and Fishers Party.

File:240-dogFighting.jpg

Three Finnish men have been arrested as part of an investigation by the Finnish National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) into apparent illegal dogfights in various locations in the south of the country.

Dog fights, in which two dogs are pitted head-to-head for the entertainment of spectators and for gambling, is illegal in Finland, and is covered by Finland’s animal protection laws, as dogs often sustain severe or even fatal injuries. It is believed this case also involved gambling, thus rendering the suspects, if convicted, in breach of gambling laws also.

The investigation was started in July after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) forwarded information to the NBI, claiming that during an investigation of its own for a programme it was making into dog fighting in the United Kingdom, they had uncovered connections to comparable activity in Finland.

“We are trying to find out when the activity has started and how widespread it has been. Apparently, just a small gang of people has been involved.” said Detective Chief Inspector Göran Wennqvist, adding that “We are now trying to find out whether or not this is part of a larger international organisation or just local criminal activity.”

It is believed the dogs went through training fights to test if they were suitable for fighting prior to actual events. A number of animals thought to have been used for fighting have been examined by a veterinarian to determine the types of injuries sustained by the dogs.

Despite the fact that dog fighting is known to have occurred in various countries – including countries close to Finland, such as Sweden, Norway, and Russia – neither the police or the Finnish Kennel Club were aware of any previous incidents occurring in Finland, although chairman of the board of the Finnish Kennel Club Martti Mannersuo told reporters that he recalled a rumour “many years ago” of domestic dog fights occurring in Finland, although this went unconfirmed. Wennqvist, however, independently told YLE “In other Nordic countries, they have seen incidents of dog fighting since the 90’s, but I haven’t come across any cases in Finland in 32 years,” although it is unclear if this was a confirmed case or if it were linked to the rumour Mannersuo had reported.
