Two persons are now nursing injuries at the West Demerara Regional Hospital, after several gunmen carried out a brazen robbery on a Parfaite Harmonie business on Monday and dealt a severe beating to them.Those injured are Farah Mohamed, 33, and her brother, Navin Mulidhar.It was reported that just after 12:00h on Monday, seven gunmen attacked the Parfaite Harmony, West Bank Demerara, residents, under the pretence of being customers at the family’s grocery store, on the same premises.The home is reportedly occupied by Farah Mohamed, her husband Imtiaz Mohamed, 35, their three children, along with Farah’s brother, Mulidhar.However, at the time of the incident, Imtiaz was in the interior, while Mulidhar and his sister were at home maintaining the business. The children were at school.Reports are that the seven men exited a pink and white route 48 minibus, and called at the grocery store for a bottle of water. Farah, after realising that her brother did not respond to the call of the customers, went to tend to them.However, they held her at gunpoint, where they commanded her to let them in. Upon doing so, the men dealt her several blows then fled with an undisclosed sum of cash and jewellery.Neighbours, who heard the woman’s screams, called the Police and she along with Mulidhar, who was found beaten and tied in the yard, were rushed to the hospital.Investigations are ongoing.

Valencia’s Chris Carmody has had one of the fastest cars — if not the fastest car — in the first two NASCAR Late Model division races at Irwindale Speedway. But Doug McComb, a driver from Thousand Oaks, has won the first two Late Model Division races. Because of inverted starting orders at Irwindale Speedway, McComb has raced with the benefit of track position in the first two races. Carmody, who set a fast time in the opening night race, has started behind McComb in both races because of a randomly determined inverted start. Carmody said having to race through traffic has cost him in the first two races. But after a three-week layoff, the Late Model cars return to Irwindale Speedway tonight and Carmody said his team might have found a solution. He admits his car was struggling in passing cars in the first two races. Carmody said the main reason was because of the Hoosier tires the Late Model teams are using this season. “We were off a little in the stagger,” said Carmody, a graduate of Saugus High School. “As soon as I got in traffic and changed my line was when I got into trouble.” With three weeks off to make adjustments and improvements, Carmody said his team has corrected the problem in his car. Now all he needs is a chance to start a race ahead of McComb. “To beat him, we just have to start out front for once,” Carmody said. “We got to come through the field. If we can start up front, we can run away with it.” McComb admits he has benefited from his starting positions in the first two races. But Carmody, and his three High Point Racing teammates, haven’t exactly been buried in the field to start races. “Those guys have been qualifying fast,” McComb said. “I can start 10th and I have the ability to run up front. He hasn’t been all that far back. The trick is to lead lap 40, not all 40.” Canyon Country’s Aaron Staudinger is fourth in points and Carmody is 10th in the Late Model division. The NASCAR Super Stocks and Mini Stocks are scheduled to race tonight at Irwindale Speedway. A demolition derby is also scheduled. Rich DeLong of Newhall is 15th in the Super Stocks standings. Gates open at 4 p.m. Races start at 7. NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series: Ron Hornaday Jr.’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team is preparing for today’s race at Kansas Speedway much like it prepared for the California Speedway race. The team is taking the same truck and using a similar set-up it had for the California Speedway race. That might prove beneficial. He finished second at Fontana and was battling for a win in the closing laps. It is also the same truck the team used at Atlanta Motor Speedway. “We are taking a truck that we ran well in twice this year, and we finished second at California in it,” said Hornaday, a former Saugus Speedway from Palmdale. “But it doesn’t really matter what we take, because I know with Rick Ren and my team working on it, that truck will be the best we have in the shop. We are taking our best guns to every fight we go to.” Ren is Hornaday’s crew chief at Kevin Harvick Inc. Ren said he is preparing Hornaday’s truck with a basic set-up and the chassis it had at California Speedway. “We altered the set-up when we went to Atlanta because it is a rougher track and you have to run different lines, smooth at one end and rough at the other,” Ren said. “We had a really good run at Fontana and the track is somewhat similar to the Kansas Speedway. The race track is smooth with high-speed corner entries. So, the set-up we use in Kansas is basically what we will do for Kentucky and Michigan.” Hornaday is fourth in points in the Truck Series standings after four races. He is coming off a sixth-place finish at Martinsville Speedway. “When I first started racing, everything was more physical because I was thinking so much,” Hornaday said. “Now I go out there and driving is my job, it’s my office. So now it’s more mental than physical for me.” American Le Mans Series: Valencia’s Bryan Herta, teamed with Dario Franchitti, finished second in the Lone Star Grand Prix near Houston last Saturday. It was the best finish for Herta and his Acura-powered Andretti Green Racing team since the season-opening 12 Hours of Sebring in Florida. Herta and Franchitti qualified fifth and finished the race behind only the Team Penske Porsche entry driven by Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas. “That was a lot of work out there,” said Herta, a Hart High of Newhall graduate. “I was able to get close to the Porsche for the lead. But getting close and passing are two different things.” Acura-powered Highcroft Racing won the pole for the Lone Star Grand Prix and finished fifth overall, fourth in the LMP2 division. Lowe’s Fernandez Racing, the third Acura-powered team in the American Le Mans Series, started seventh and finished seventh. The Acura engines are designed and developed at Santa Clarita-based Honda Performance Development. The next race for the American Le Mans Series is the Utah Grand Prix on May 19. — Staff Writer Tim Haddock covers auto racing for the Daily News.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The federal government spent $3.2 billion more in the state than it had the year before but California saw only 11.9 percent of the government’s overall procurement spending, down from 12.6 percent the year before. “For a state that used to get a quarter of defense spending, that’s a remarkable change of events,” Ransdell said. Ransdell said it is the smallest share of spending since agencies began recording the statistics in 1981. With defense spending making up the bulk of procurement, Ransdell and other officials speculated that the Pentagon’s current Iraq needs are focused more on ground support than aerospace. “We don’t make much ammunition, we don’t make the tanks. We don’t make a lot of the equipment for the ground fighting,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist of the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp. “You have literally two hot wars going on, and they’re not heavy users of what we produce in California.” Long gone are the days when the U.S. government spent 18 percent of its defense funds in California. Yet while the share of money going to the state has slowly dropped for more than 20 years, Ransdell said the most recent dip is the biggest in years. “We thought we had hit the bottom of the valley,” he said, adding that he expects the decline to continue. Russell Goldsmith, CEO of City National Bank in Los Angeles, said he is concerned that the state’s needs in homeland security and transportation are not being met. “California continues to be getting an unfair share of federal spending based on the legitimate needs of a vibrant economy,” he said. Kyser also said he foresees the state continuing to give more to Washington than it gets back in federal tax dollars. He noted that replacement of the space shuttle will be done in either Florida or Texas. “It’s a fight,” he said. email@example.com (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – California’s share of federal spending has sunk to its lowest level in decades, the apparent result of war dollars shifting from air defense to ground weapons. New Census Bureau statistics for 2005, the latest figures available, show that the share of federal spending in the Golden State dipped to 10.8 percent from 11 percent. While it’s a tiny dip in percentage points, economists said it represents a significant symbolic drop. The waning numbers are being driven by a decline in the share of federal procurement funds being funneled to California, said Tim Ransdell, executive director of the California Institute for Federal Policy Research.
Regulators from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection have signed off on a proposal to build a 62-turbine wind project, the state’s largest. The Bangor Daily News reports that a draft order approving the proposal from a subsidiary of First Wind of Boston, Massachusetts, is subject to public comment and further review. But even critics think the project is likely to win final approval.The $398 million wind farm in the Bingham area, about 50 miles west Bangor, would have a total rated capacity of 186 megawatts.Its supporters say the project will make the region’s power grid more reliable and provide an economic boost to the state.Critics object to the project’s potential impact on wildlife, the environment, and the tourist industry, a major employer in the state. Further, a group called Friends of Maine Mountains, objects to the land-use permit authorizing construction on grounds that First Wind is not setting aside enough money for the eventual decommissioning of the project.“I won’t say that I’m overly optimistic that DEP is going to do anything different than what’s in the draft,” Friends of Maine Mountains president Chris O’Neil told the paper, “but we’re going to take one shot at pointing out some weaknesses in … the applicant’s materials.” Maine ranks 26th in nation for wind energyAccording to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), Maine has a total installed wind capacity of 431 megawatts in 13 separate projects, making it 26th in the country. Wind now provides about 7.5% of the state’s electricity.According to AWEA, the state set wind energy goals in 2008 that will require a total of 2,000 MW of installed capacity by 2015.There is still some question about that financial underpinnings for the project. The developer won approval for a financial partnership to pay for wind development in July after a Maine Supreme Judicial Court review. But the decision is apparently still open to further appeal by one of the intervenors in the case.But O’Neil says his group is focused on delaying wind projects, not defeating them, the Bangor paper reported. “If we can slow them down, we consider that victory,” he said.The wind farm would span a number of communities. The developer has already signed agreements to provide annual payments of $176,000 to Kingsbury Plantation, $106,000 to Bingham, and $20,000 each to Abbott, Parkman and Moscow, the newspaper said.Public comments are being accepted until September 4.
Improving housing for low-income peopleA local newspaper, The Tico Times, said that the bottles are made from 100 percent recycled plastic and filled with water collected near Juan Castro Blanco National Park. Once the recycled bottles are collected, they are pressed and filled to become roofing tiles.It will take some 5,000 water bottles to roof a small house, 8,000 bottles for a house of average size.The water bottles are attractive from a recycling point of view, but Thomson told the newspaper the real point is providing quality building materials at a low cost.“The cycle of poverty is often determined by where you live,” Thomson said. “Some housing projects fail because the homes people have don’t appreciate over time… We’re going to be able to sell [them] almost at cost,” he said. “All for the price of garbage.”Thomson is a Canadian entrepreneur who has lived in Costa Rica since 1990. A Costa Rican businessman has developed a type of plastic water bottle that can be turned into a roofing tile when its empty instead of pitched in the trash or sent to a recycling center.Donald Thomson worked for years to develop the idea after watching children squash plastic water bottles during a beach cleanup, an article in PlasticsNews said.Like lots of other people, Thomson had been bugged by the amount of plastic trash that washed ashore. Seeing the children flatten the bottles gave him the idea of developing his own bottled water company that also produced roofing tiles.“What we did is say, ‘Well, there’s so much plastic coming up on the beach, if you can’t beat them, join them,’” he told PlasticNews. “‘And what can we do with this from a high-quality building standpoint.’”Bottled water from Thomson’s company, Agua Costa Rica, sells for the equivalent of $1.25 to $1.30, slightly more than competing products from PepsiCo and Coca-Cola. The rectangular 710 ml. bottles are shipped in a recycled plastic tote that stores give out to their customers.When the bottles are empty, they are compacted and filled with a mixture of recycled paper, foam and cement. Then they’re mounted on rails and woven together with string to make roofing tiles, the article said.“I get my raw material back for almost zero cost,” he said. “That’s a really great business model. That’s a whole new deal.”
Argentina’s Lionel Messi fights for the ball against Germany in World Cup final With two quick and sublimely deft touches, Mario Goetze ended Germany’s 24-year wait for another World Cup title. Goetze scored the winning goal in extra time to give Germany a 1-0 victory over Argentina on Sunday in a tight and tense World Cup final that came down to a few moments of individual skill.Goetze, who wasn’t born when West Germany beat Argentina in the 1990 final, controlled a cross with his chest in the 113th minute and in one fluid motion volleyed the ball past goalkeeper Sergio Romero and inside the far post from five yards out.It was a goal that gave Germany its fourth World Cup title in its eighth final, and left Argentina star Lionel Messi still walking in the shadow of his compatriot Diego Maradona, who led his country to the 1986 title.Goetze went on as a substitute for Miroslav Klose toward the end of regulation time and the 22-year-old midfielder’s fresh legs made the difference.Team Lineups(from):Germany: Manuel Neuer; Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Benedikt Howedes; Philipp Lahm, Christoph Kramer (Andre Schurrle, 31st), Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil (Per Mertesacker, 120th); Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose (Mario Gotze, 88th).Argentina: Sergio Romero; Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis, Ezequiel Garay, Marcos Rojo; Lucas Biglia, Javier Mascherano, Enzo Perez (Fernando Gago, 86th); Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain (Rodrigo Palacio, 78th), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Sergio Aguero, 46th)
