…wounded man who refused to give him moneyOne day after Quincy Henry, called “Fix It”, denied he had wounded Troy Bacchus, called “Fletcher,” with intent to murder him — on September 20, 2015 at Bourda in Georgetown – he changed his plea to guilty at the High Court on Thursday.He had previously said he was defending himself, but after reconsideration, he accepted responsibility for his actions; and this has led Justice Brassington Reynolds to direct the jury foreman to return a formal verdict of guilty.Justice Reynolds has, however, delayed passing sentence on the handyman to October 8, to facilitate the preparation and presentation of a probation report. On October 8, a plea of mitigation and summary of the facts will also be presented.Based on reports surrounding the case, Henry has had a habit of asking individuals for money, and would be violent when persons refuse his request. On the day in question, Bacchus refused Henry’s request, and was wounded by him.During Wednesday’s court appearance, Henry seemed to have had difficulty hearing, as the Judge and the Court’s Registrar had had to repeat statements several times while communicating with him. He had been placed on $50,000 bail prior to his High Court appearance.Henry had not been represented by legal counsel at his trial, as he had not retained one, and the State is not required to provide legal representation for attempted murder.
I have long had a belief that every software/Internet product should really consider having an API as part of their product and development strategy.I continue to be surprised by the lack of thinking in this area, both in terms of product strategy and in terms of the sophistication of the API planning process. In my view, there should be an API roadmap and ideally the User Interface of the product only can use the API (this is not a technically pure approach in some instances, but it really forces the thinking on and evolution of the API!).Sonoa has a solid product and development roadmap whitepaper, “Is your API Naked? 10 Considerations for your API Roadmap” here. Take a look, as there are a lot of API considerations that they have listed for you to think about that could help your thinking and planning…AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis
