first_imgGareth Reid being brought back into court in handcuffs for an earlier court hearing.A former Donegal county councillor who told his ex-partner he would put a bullet between her eyes has been told he could face a jail sentence.Gareth Reid, 31, appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday facing a total of fourteen charges of breaching a barring order and also another of criminal damage. Reid, a former Donegal County Councillor, pleaded guilty to all charges.The cases relate to a number of incidents involving the mother of his three children who also appeared in court.The incident s go backs to March 23rd last year up until March 15th of this year at various locations including a shop, a bar and a private house.Garda Inspector Michael Harrison read out the breaches of the barring order which saw Reid telephone and text his ex-partner dozens of times.On one occasion he telephoned her 23 times in a number of minutes.He also called to her home in Stranorlar demanding to see his children.On another occasion on August 16th, 2013 Reid used a car to cause €560 to the woman’s car.He tried to gain entry to the woman’s house and when he could not he left her a message in which he told her “A good slap will knock some sense into you. I’m going to break your f***ing mouth when I get back.”On April 1st last the woman said she was left terrified after he told her “The next time I see you, you will get a bullet between the eyes.”The woman said she was terrified as Reid, of Lawnsdale, Ballybofey, worked overseas and she thought he may be able to get a gun.She gave evidence saying that although she accepted he could see his children, she did not want to ever have anything to do with him again.“It’s a bit sad that I’m 30 years old and I need my father to live with me all the time,” she said.The accused gave evidence that he now accepted that the couple’s relationship was now over and he apologised to the woman in court.“I am disgusted with myself,” he said.But the woman said she did not accept that he thought their relationship of 12 years was finished.She said their eldest child had his communion recently and that Reid had then posted a picture of them together as his Facebook profile.Judge Paul Kelly described the case as an “extremely sad” one in which an awful lot of heartache had been caused to the woman and her three beautiful children.“She has been left helpless because she had a safety order which was being breached all the time. He did spend a few short spells in custody but he persisted to offend and breach his bail on a number of occasions,” said the Judge.He asked for a probation report to be carried out on Reid and adjourned the case until July 17th.However, he warned Reid that he was not ruling out the possibility that he may face a term in jail.FORMER COUNTY COUNCILLOR TOLD EX-PARTNER HE WOULD PUT A BULLET BETWEEN HER EYES was last modified: May 16th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:BallybofeydonegalGareth ReidJudge Paul Kellylast_img read more

Taking the Sci-Fi Out of SETI

first_imgSETI might well stand for “Sci-Fi of Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence” with its ROI (return on investment) of zero in 50 years of searching (12/31/2009).  In his latest piece for Space.com Seth Shostak did the best he could to distinguish SETI as science, not science fiction, though plenty of the latter will be evident at a conference in Santa Clara this weekend called SETIcon (SETI Conference), sponsored by the SETI Institute.  Shostak, erstwhile Director, preferred in this article to call himself by his new scientific title, “Senior Astronomer.”    The conference will feature a who’s who of SETI glitterati, including Frank Drake, Jill Tarter, and Seth Shostak himself, who has tried to make the scientific case for SETI for years (01/05/2005, 04/22/2009).  They will be accompanied by Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweikart, planet hunter Mike Brown, Alex Filippenko and other astronomers.  Mixed in with the “science” category are plenty of “science fiction” people, like Robyn Asimov (the daughter of noted atheist science fiction writer Isaac Asimov), sci-if screenwriters, actors from sci-if movies, and book authors, making this a blend of views “all dealing with the science and science-fiction of extraterrestrial life.”    What did Shostak offer up as the science of SETI?  Without a subject (02/20/2004, 07/25/2006), is it really right to call it science (08/13/2004)?  Without doubt, there has been plenty of progress in astrophysical theories about the lifetimes of various star types, the conditions for habitable environments, and a growing roster of extrasolar planets.  The search tools have become much better, with the Allen Telescope Array coming online (08/17/2007, 10/12/2007).   But much of his material is in future tense – what scientists can expect is possible, given the constraints of physics (12/07/2007).  Scientists help inform overactive screenwriters’ imaginations with a dose of realism.  The dinner in honor of Frank Drake is more a celebrity toast than a science presentation, since Drake never found anything.    Shostak insisted that “there’s never been a time when the search for life beyond Earth – a staple of the [science fiction] genre – was more informed by real science.”  But the only scientific achievements he listed deal with stars, planets, radio waves, and the like – the usual astronomy – not matters of sentient beings.Would it be science if you published many articles on scientific constraints for the survival of gnomes and leprechauns?  Shostak knows a lot of astronomy, but his reason for being in his current post is SETI, for which there is no scientific evidence.  He loves to mingle with the sci-if crowd (05/31/2005), but when the legitimacy of SETI is at stake, he can easily point to Filippenko and Brown and the other legit astronomers, and say, “I’m with them.”  Note: they haven’t found ET, either.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The prototype utilizes Kinect’s motion-sensing technology in order to send and receive email.This isn’t the first Kinect hack from the ICT MxR Lab.
