DONEGAL RESIDENT SEXUALLY ASSAULTED YOUNG GIRL AT DUBLIN AIRPORT

first_imgLiudas Vaisvilas who lives in Letterkenny.A 51-year old man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl at Dublin Airport after wrestling her to the ground in public has been ordered to undergo a full psychiatric assessment.The man, who has lived in Donegal for almost a decade, told gardaí he was having flashbacks to when he worked in the Russian Special Forces in Siberia and believed he was protecting his girlfriend from falling bombs. Liudas Vaisvilas, with an address at Glenveagh Court, Letterkenny, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal to sexual assault at Terminal 2 in Dublin Airport on April 10, 2014.The Irish Independent reports that hours after he was released from garda custody following the incident, Vaisvilas was arrested for sexually assaulting a young girl in a similar way at Eddie Rocket’s Diner on O’Connell Street.Judge Patrick McCartan said while Vaisvilas might well try to explain away the first incident on the basis of having drunk vodka, he was not drunk at the time of the second sexual assault.The judge expressed concern that whatever was troubling Vaisvilas could lead to repeat offences. He remanded him in custody for sentencing next February, pending a full psychiatric assessment and updated probation report.Garda Tanya Shinkins told Noel Carroll BL, defending, that the 19-year-old victim was sitting in the airport at about 10:30 waiting for a flight when Vaisvilas walked right up and put his face very close to her.He asked her repeatedly if she had the internet and then sat down beside her and grabbed her between her legs.The girl was in shock and started screaming for help but a man sitting near her seemed also too shocked to help. The girl went running towards two airport officials for help but Vaisvilas rugby-tackled her to the ground.He had one hand between her legs and the other on her bottom and the girl said she felt helpless and couldn’t breathe as he was so strong.Airport authorities and members of the public managed to get Vaisvilas off the girl and he was arrested shortly after midnight.Vaisvilas said he was shocked when shown CCTV footage of the incident and wanted to apologise and explain to the girl that he had been “crazy” and “confused in his mind”.Dominic McGinn SC, defending, said his client’s mother and another relative had died recently, and he had missed a flight home to Lithuania for a funeral.He had not slept for the previous five or six days, had drunk some vodka, and was having flashbacks to when he worked in the Russian army, counsel said.Vaisvilas was previously sentenced to six months’ suspended for the second sexual assault in Eddie Rocket’s Diner. He has one other conviction for road traffic offences.Vaisvilas has lived in Ireland for nine years and worked at a meat-packing plant in Letterkenny.Judge McCartan adjourned sentencing until February 2 next and said Vaisvilas will get full credit for the time he has spent in custody.The court heard Vaisvilas has been in custody since the offence because he was unable to pay the €1,500 required under his High Court bail.DONEGAL RESIDENT SEXUALLY ASSAULTED YOUNG GIRL AT DUBLIN AIRPORT was last modified: December 19th, 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)last_img read more

Pull the Plug or Life Support? Google Wants To Know Your Final Wishes

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Google announced today that it has begun prompting users of its online health information service to fill out Advanced Care Directives, the documents that communicate end-of-life wishes ahead of time in case you’re unable to communicate while hospitalized. On one level, that makes sense: communicate your wishes about being kept on life support or not and store it online with a very stable service provider. On another level, though, this is creepy. The huge stores of knowledge about our lives and world now contained on the servers of huge companies like Google and Facebook could be put to great use – or they could end up providing the foundation for a sci-fi horror story. Chances are, reality will be somewhere in between. All this centralized information about us will be useful, a little invasive and a little disappointing in the utility actually delivered. When the worst-case scenario story gets written, though, it’s hard to imagine this won’t be a chapter.Google is working with an organization called Caring Connections to provide an Advanced Care Directive template that can be printed, filled out and then scanned. Once scanned into Google Health, it’s easy for your health care practitioner to access. Let’s hope it stays secure, that end of life information.That sounds great. For example, we wrote this Spring about a related, independent service that provides this type of functionality called Legacy Locker. That company’s security measures look great, and they aren’t Google. Which would you prefer to entrust with your dying wishes? It’s something to think about.Just remember that for a growing number of people, Google now knows about our search histories, our email behavior, our telephone activity, our genetic codes, what the front of our homes look like…and now how we want to be treated when we’re dying. It’s all very useful. I’m just saying.

Why Do My Salespeople Turnover?

first_imgThe sales leader asked a question to a group of us on the stage at the OutBound Conference. He asked, “How do I hire salespeople that won’t turnover.” Because of the limited time we had remaining, I didn’t answer the question, but it does require an answer.There are two ways to look at your results in an area like this. The first way is to assume that the salespeople are to blame. The second way is to assume that you are to blame. Only one of these ways of viewing this challenges is helpful improving your results.Nothing Is My FaultIf you believe that your salespeople are all bad, then hiring another bunch of salespeople isn’t going to improve your results. The next group is going to be equally bad. If nothing is your fault, then there is nothing you can change. You surely won’t believe that you are the source of the problem. How could you be? You’re not the one failing to sell.Absolving yourself of responsibility only ensures that you turn over more salespeople. How could it be otherwise when you are not to blame and there is nothing you can do?Everything Is My FaultIf it’s your fault that the salespeople you hire are turning over, then you are empowered to do something about it.It may be that your hiring process isn’t good, but that isn’t as likely as another reason your salespeople turnover. The more likely reason is that you aren’t as committed to their success as you need to be. The likely reason they turnover is that they aren’t being well led, well managed, and well coached. It’s also likely that they aren’t being trained and developed to succeed in sales.If I had to bet, I’d bet the salespeople are failing due to neglect in these areas before I would look to any other factor.General US Grant was the fourth General to command the Union Army. The enemy didn’t change, nor did the terrain. The resources didn’t change, nor did the Colonels and Captains. The only factor that changed was the leader. Essential Reading!
