He left a note at the house asking the occupant to contact him.He returned two days later and again heard a dog and decided to call gardai who forced entry into the property.Inside the house he found an emaciated terrier dog abandoned, covered in its own excrement. A bucket filled with water had been left beside the dog but it was unable to drink from it as it was too tall for the pup to reach.“The dog was in a poor state,” McGinley told the court.“Its backbone was protruding and its ribs were prominent.”He traced owner Natalie McGranaghan to her mother’s home but she had claimed she had sold the dog.She later admitted she hadn’t – but claimed she had fed the dog two days earlier.Judge Paul Kelly – looking at these pictures – remarked that “this was an appalling thing to do to an unfortunate defenceless animal.”The judge adjourned sentence until July 16 to allow McGranaghan time to pay €400 in veterinary bills.The dog has since made a full recovery.JUDGE SLAMS WOMAN WHO LEFT DOG TO STARVE IN HOUSE was last modified: April 16th, 2015 by John2Share 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:DOGdonegalDSPCAletterkennystarvewomanlast_img read more

Santa’s helpers, better known as the team behind Discovery’s daily sci-tech series DAILY PLANET, are hard at work preparing for every tech toy-lover’s favourite week of the year, “High-Tech Toys Week”. Airing exclusively on Discovery beginning Monday, Dec. 5 through Friday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, DAILY PLANET explores a week full of boundless innovation and imagination.From a life-size Transformer car to vertical air hockey, viewers are invited to join co-hosts Ziya Tong and Dan Riskin as they fill Santa’s sleigh with the season’s most exciting, outlandish, and coveted high-tech toys from around the world.“High-Tech Toys Week” was the second most-watched theme week on DAILY PLANET during the 2015/16 broadcast year, trailing only “Future-Tech Week”. DAILY PLANET, the world’s only nightly science broadcast reaches more than 1.3 million viewers each week and continues to win the 7 p.m. ET timeslot among Canadian entertainment specialty channels during the 2016/17 broadcast year among all key adult demographics. “Teal Highspeed Drone”George Matus was 11 years old when he flew his first drone and was immediately blown away. By 16, Matus was competing as a professional drone racer and acting as a test pilot for new aircraft. Today, Matus is the CEO of his own drone and software company, Teal. After years of flying, crashing, rebuilding, and modifying dozens of versions of drones, Matus has completed his dream drone, the Teal. The highly impressive unmanned aircraft flies at more than 120 kilometres per hour, can operate in wind speeds of 64 kilometres per hour, and has a built-in camera, GPS, and autonomous capabilities. From gaming and augmented reality to security applications and agriculture, Matus wants to make this drone do anything the imagination can conjure. Testing diffferent flight propellers and evaluating for speed, noise, and handling, Matus and the Teal team join DAILY PLANET as they race to get to market “the world’s fastest production drone in its class.”“Climball”What is the result when pinball, air hockey, wall climbing, and a splash of augmented reality mix together? Climball – a high-tech, fast-paced game combining  augmented reality technology with rock climbing. The physically engaging game tracks the players’ movements while they compete to volley a virtual ball. DAILY PLANET climbs on board to get a closer look at the tech behind the newest way to get into shape.“The PancakeBot” Marking the very first food printer of its kind, the $300 PancakeBot  is the brainchild of Miguel Valenzuela, a civil engineer, inventor, and father living in Norway. A container of batter is attached to PancakeBot’s mechanical printing arm where underneath sits a flat, heated griddle that acts as its canvas. Users can turn almost anything into a yummy breakfast treat – a child’s drawing, a product image, a team’s logo, or even a favorite piece of artwork. DAILY PLANET meets with Valenzuela, who spills the batter on PancakeBot’s food printing technology.“Amphibious Helicopter”Novelty car builder Jeff Bloch, also known as SpeedyCop, is the master of developing crazy, homemade cars. He’s built a fighter jet car, an upside down Camaro, and even a car that stretches out like an accordion – all capable of racing at 24 Hours of LeMons, a series of endurance races held on paved courses across the U.S. This year, Bloch recycled a damaged helicopter from the Vietnam War and transformed it into a mighty machine that can race on land and in water, making the gadget an entirely amphibious helicopter. Although it can’t take flight just yet, it has some truly astounding capabilities! DAILY PLANET meets Bloch to discuss how he intends to take these off-the-wall vehicles from the junkyard to the racetrack.“Carr-E”Many city drivers have experienced the congestion of downtown roadways during rush hour – the impatience, the frustration, and the worry. Well, Ford Motor Company is hoping to prevent commuter frustration with the “Last Mile Mobility Challenge”. One of this year’s finalists is Kilian Vas, a Ford engineer who has designed and built the Carr-E. An easily transported, segway-like vehicle, the Carr-E can propel motorist through all types of traffic. Carr-E’s ultrasonic sensors and built-in GPS allow it to navigate through busy streets, avoiding any obstacle thrown in its path. DAILY PLANET meets with Vas to test out the four-wheel, electric pedestrian assistant that could potentially be the next big breakthrough in urban commuting.Subscribers can catch up on past episodes on demand on the Discovery GO app and at Discovery.ca.

Klopp It could have been better

first_imgLiverpool’s current tally of 23 points after nine games puts them second on the league table and Jürgen Klopp has no doubt there is plenty more to come from his team.Liverpool defeated Huddersfield Town 1-0 to earn their seventh win of the Premier League season thanks to Mohamed Salah’s 24th-minute goal.The Merseyside team also matches Manchester City’s points haul so far and have conceded just three goals in their opening nine league matches.Despite being satisfied with the result, Klopp pointed out the areas for improvement.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“It could have been better. How it always is in football, if you don’t play your best there are different reasons for it, the main reason today was that Huddersfield did well” Klopp told Liverpoolfc website.“They defended well, very aggressive around the second balls and it’s really difficult to get into a game if the ball is that often in the air and stuff like that. We could have done better, but actually, I thought we did a few things really well and were really close to having big chances at the start of the game.“When Alisson had the ball and we could play the long ball, stretch the formation by coming in between, it was so close that we would have been clean through. But we didn’t do it and Huddersfield defended that well.“Then we scored the goal, we had opportunities, but then Huddersfield came back into the game – I think it started with a corner and then the atmosphere was really there, the crowd was there. It is not too comfortable.”last_img read more
