2020.07.17 18:16 _c9s_ Areas without Coronavirus spread (17th July update)

Here's an update to the post I made last week looking at the end of the spectrum we're not talking about so much - where we're not seeing many cases of Coronavirus spreading in the UK.
Orkney and the Western Isles are the only areas that haven't seen any cases in the past month now, with the other areas that were getting close last week mostly having a low number of cases crop up over the week.

Here's a big table of the date of the latest case reported in each local authority/health board, and how many cases they've had in the past two weeks:

Notes for Scotland

Scotland reports data based on local health boards rather than local authorities and with the date they were reported rather than the date the swab was taken. This will result in higher numbers than elsewhere and the latest cases being slightly more recent than the rest of the UK.

Notes for NI

Some parts of NI are reporting negative cases, which is mathematically impossible. I believe is due to the authorities reporting data incorrectly and then correcting it later without updating the historical data.

2020.07.09 18:44 _c9s_ Areas where Coronavirus isn't spreading

With lots of talk about the places where cases are spiking, I thought it might be interesting to look at the other end of the spectrum - where we're not seeing any cases reported.
Below is a list of all the Local Authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and health boards in Scotland, the date of their most recent case, and the number of cases in the past two weeks. Sorry for the length of this post!

Derry City and Strabane is the only part of the UK that haven't seen a case in over a month, with Uttlesford (in Essex), the Scottish isles (Orkney, Western Isles), and parts of the South West (Bath, North Devon) only slightly behind with no cases in the past 3 weeks.
Living in one of those areas, it does make me quite a bit less hesitant to do things like go to the pub, since there's such a low chance of catching it.

Scotland reports data based on local health boards rather than local authorities and with the date they were reported rather than the date the swab was taken. This will result in higher numbers than elsewhere and the latest cases being slightly more recent than the rest of the UK.

Notes for NI

Some parts of NI (and also Scotland) are reporting negative cases, which is mathematically impossible. I believe is due to the authorities reporting data incorrectly and then correcting it later without updating the historical data. In Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, as an example, there had been 754 confirmed cases on the 25th of June, which has dropped in several stages to 744 today.

Data sources

Edit: Welsh data was missing. I've added it now!

2020.05.31 20:25 jcollywobble Which part of the UK produces the best footballers? (Experiment) (Part 4)

Here we are again, with my penultimate post relating to this experiment. I will reveal the final five teams below and will also introduce a prediction game in which you can to predict how the season will pan out once I simulate on FM. If you’re new to this and how it will work, have a look at the previous three posts below.
Part 1 – Explains how the experiment will work and reveals the first five teams.
Part 2 – Reveal of Teams 5-10 and maps of the split of the regions.
Part 3 – Reveal of Teams 10-15.
As someone quite rightly pointed out in the previous post, Chris Wilder should have been made manager of the South Yorkshire & Humber team rather than Neil Warnock (I originally wrongly had Wilder down as the manager of the North & West Yorkshire team), so that’s been changed for the experiment going forward.
Moving on to the teams, featuring the remainder of the English Counties and the Scottish and Northern Irish contingent, we have some interesting names including a certain Borussia Dortmund striker, the most successful British football manager of all time and a handful of Champions League winners.
__________
Team 16 – North & West Yorks’ -North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire – Population: 3,434,422 Media Prediction: 10th - Title Odds: 40-1
Manager – Steve McClaren (York, Unemployed)

https://preview.redd.it/3r46ld1675251.png?width=565&format=png&auto=webp&s=7192df704e8b6d1c37de9a355842a6ef333cee44
Likely Starting XI
The region of Yorkshire would have finished 12th in the 2012 Olympics medal table if considered an independent country, the impressive production of line of sportsmen also includes some decent footballers as shown by the quality included within the South Yorkshire team. The North & West Yorkshire team doesn’t quite have the same level of ability however does boast some exciting names.
Steve McClaren, nicknamed ‘the wally with the brolly’ as part of his unsuccessful spell as England manager failing to qualify for Euro 2008, will manage the North & West Yorks’ side. McClaren has managed in Germany, Holland and England since then and guided FC Twente to their first ever Eredivisie title in 2009. Since then, he has rather unsuccessful spells at the likes of Newcastle, QPR and Wolfsburg.
The standout name within this team is the Norwegian wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland, who surprisingly was born in Leeds when his Dad Alfe-Inge was playing for Leeds in the late nineties. Haaland has been an absolute revelation in the past year and has scored for fun, even since joining Dortmund he has in averaging almost a goal a game. Haaland will be part of an exciting young attacking trio alongside Mason Greenwood and Oli McBurnie which will certainly be full of raw talent and ability with an enormous amount of potential.
Amongst the rest of the team, James Milner is the most experienced player by a long way, Milner seems to get better with age and will probably put in a decent shift in any position with McClaren chooses to deploy him. Fabian Delph and Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips will form a tireless midfield duo and are both arguably premier league standard players who will make a big impact in the team. Bournemouth’s Lewis Cook who has been once capped for England will also throw his name in the hat to be a part of McClaren’s starting midfield.
In defence, Norwich’s Ben Godfrey looks to be the standout player (apart from Milner) and will probably partner either Andre Wisdom or Connor Goldson at the back depending what system McClaren adopts. The number one shirt will go to Cardiff’s Alex Smithies, who has featured 21 times for Cardiff in the championship in the year so far and will offer a reliable choice in net, although probably won’t do anything spectacular.
Haalands goals alongside Miners experience could prove vital to McClaren’s men having a good season as there doesn’t appear to be a great deal of quality to warrant a better finish than the currently predicted 10th place
__________
Team 17 – North-East & Borders - County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, East Midlothian, Edinburgh City, Midlothian, Scottish Borders - Population: 3,127,298 Media Prediction: 11th - Title Odds: 45-1
Manager – Gordon Strachan (Edinburgh, Unemployed)

https://preview.redd.it/0ffhm8ma75251.png?width=551&format=png&auto=webp&s=2ff11e279d01dc2e02544417d30f2c4e1d459d6b
Likely Starting XI
The North-East of England is a football mad region which has produced amazing players in the past, including the likes of Chris Waddle, Gazza, Peter Beardsley, Michael Carrick and of course the legendary Alan Shearer. In terms of the Scottish contingent of the squad, Edinburgh is less known for producing football players compared to the other big Scottish city Glasgow, however the manager, Edinburgh-born Gordon Strachan will be representing the Scots.
Out of the 25 players, only 3 Scottish born players make the squad, all of whom will probably be fringe players. The squad unfortunately doesn’t match the level of ability of its predecessors from the region. Sunderland academy products Jordan Pickford and Jordan Henderson, who lifted the champions league trophy last year, are the two stand out players from this region. Pickford has been England’s first choice goalkeeper for the past few years and is one of the better keepers in this league.
Alongside Henderson in the midfield will be one of the Longstaff brothers who have both came through the Newcastle academy. Sean had his breakthrough season last season whilst brother Matty has emerged within the current season. Both brothers are a similar type of player with younger brother, Matty has a bit more energy and probably offers a more balanced option alongside Henderson.
Another Borussia Dortmund youngster who was born in the UK, Giovanni Reyna, features in the attacking midfield. Gio was born in Sunderland of all places, when his Dad Claudio was playing in the North-East. Reyna is predicted to start in the number ten role behind either Leigh Griffiths or 9 time England capped and £35m man (at one point) Andy Carroll. Carroll has largely had a career of injuries and under-performances since his big money move to Liverpool but will always be a handful for defenders.
In defence, the squad features some decent premier league players, including the likes of Ben Gibson, Chris Basham, Dan Burn and Welsh international Paul Dummett. Unfortunately, the strength in defence is largely in the central positions with the full back positions looking a lot weaker by comparison.
Overall a decent team that should be in and around the mid table positions come the end of the season. Pickford and the defence should hope to keep the clean sheets to take the pressure off the attacking part of the team.
__________
Team 18 – N.I & SW Scotland - Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Dumfries and Galloway, East Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, North Ayrshire, Renfrewshire, South Ayrshire, South Lanarkshire- Population: 3,082,203 Media Prediction: 13th - Title Odds: 150-1
Manager – Brendan Rodgers (Carnlough, Leicester City)

https://preview.redd.it/wm5zkb0o75251.png?width=538&format=png&auto=webp&s=1671f22d0ffe5785ff8420a1d4ab7dfee6673ba7
Likely Starting XI
The team featuring Northern Ireland and my place of birth, I’ll be backing Rodgers’ men for when I come to simulate the season. I’ve also included Isle of Man (who technically aren’t in the UK, but I’ve thrown them in for the inclusion of a particular player. As mentioned, Brendan Rodgers will take charge of this team which could’ve had either Martin or Michael O’Neill at the helm and he will be hoping to take this team higher than their predicted finish of 13th. The squad has a wealth of international experience featuring 743 international caps between them from players representing Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
The squad’s composition is made up of 14 Northern Irishmen, 10 Scots and the one player born in the Isle of Man, Kieran Tierney who plays his international football for Scotland. Tierney is probably the key player in the squad and there may have a been a bit of bias about his inclusion to boost the chances of this team. Nonetheless he is part of a decent defence which includes 3 time premier league winner and 80-time Northern Ireland capped Jonny Evans. Amongst the rest of defence, there is Watford’s Craig Cathcart, Brighton’s Shane Duffy and Grant Hanley.
The midfield and attack are underwhelming and features only one player currently playing in the premier league. However, James Forrest offers a threat from the right wing and will be hoping to use his pace and trickery to full effect. On the other flank will probably be James McClean who no doubt would turn his nose up at representing this region if called upon in reality.
Leading the line will be either of the ageing duo of Steven Naismith or Kyle Lafferty who would offer a more direct option for Rodgers’ men. Finally, in goal, Craig Gordon should provide a decent option and has played in the premier league in the past.
Despite my allegainces to this team, I’m not too hopeful considering the squad above, but fingers crossed Brendan can work his magic and a top ten finish would be a success!
__________
Team 19 – Northern Scotland - Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Angus, Argyll and Bute, Clackmannanshire, Dundee City, East Dunbartonshire, Falkirk, Fife, Glasgow City, Highlands, North Lanarkshire, Orkney Islands, Perth and Kinross, Shetland Islands, Stirling, West Dunbartonshire, West Lothian - Population: 3,405,207 Media Prediction: 7th - Title Odds: 25-1
Manager – Alex Ferguson (Glasgow, Man United (Technical Director))

https://preview.redd.it/vv1kvxzt75251.png?width=564&format=png&auto=webp&s=1a9706ddaf93804892888362dff207a8735eeb65
Likely Starting XI
Yes, that’s right, the most successful football manager of all time is coming out of retirement to participate in this experiment. I had some doubts over the inclusion of Fergie as he’s not technically still in management, nonetheless I thought I’d throw him in as he is still classed as being able to manage on FM and it could add another mini-experiment in the context of this to see how Fergie would do coming back to management with this type of squad at 78 years of age.
The remaining counties of Scotland represent this team and, like the previous squad, has plenty of international of experience. Champions League winner and probably the best left back in the league, Andy Robertson, is the key player in this team and adds some quality to the defence which doesn’t appear to be anything special outside Robertson with the remaining defenders largely being at mid table SPL clubs.
The midfield of this team is certainly the strength, FM predicts Celtic duo Callum McGregor and Scott Brown to sit in a pivot in front of the defence. Both players provide a balanced midfield and have experience playing in Celtic’s dominant spell in Scottish football. James McCarthy will also make a decent option if the managers decides to play with a three in midfield. In front of those two, will be an attacking trio of premier league players Ryan Fraser, Robert Snodgrass and Stefan Armstrong. Fraser, in particular, will be a threat with his direct running and ability to beat his man on the wing.
The striker position, however, appears to be lacking quality. FM is predicting Dundee United man, Lawrence Shankland, to start upfront although Ferguson also has the option of Ross McCormack who has previously been prolific in the championship for both Leeds and Fulham.
It will be interesting to see what effect the manager has on this team, theoretically the team should overperform with an excellent manager and that’s perhaps why they are predicted to finish 7th.
__________
Team 20 – Western England - Cheshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire - Population: 3,237,053 Media Prediction: 15th - Title Odds: 250-1
Manager – Adrian Heath (Newcastle-under-Lyme, Minnesota United)

https://preview.redd.it/0h6tixrx75251.png?width=581&format=png&auto=webp&s=d2ebc7498c6e10c6822e476f56ac83b45528283f
Likely Starting XI
And, the final team in the experiment as you may have noticed is a strange combination of counties. This region was put together as the result of my mistake of having to construct a region made up of the qualifying population after incorrectly dividing the UK into 19 teams and having to pull a group of counties together from the other regions I’d already selected.
Managing this team will be former Everton and Burnley footballer Adrian Heath. Heath has managed in the USA since 2008 after brief spells at Burnley and Sheffield United in the late nineties. An unfamiliar name to most in terms of management, it remains to be seen what impact he will have.
Onto the players. At first glance the teams appear to be made up of a group of washed up premier league players with a sprinkle of young talent. Typifying this is the goalkeeping position, Joe Hart and Tom Heaton, will compete for the number one jersey alongside young Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale. It seems like most of the other regions would be begging for any one of these three considering the lack of ability in this position at most of the other teams.
In defence, the trend continues with the likes of Stoke duo James Chester and Ryan Shawcross who are alongside Jack Robinson and Curtis Nelson in the centre back position. The squad has a decent amount of ability in the midfield, which includes Jesse Lingard who more well known for his off the field social media antics than his ability on the pitch. Bournemouth’s David Brooks will probably play behind the striker whilst another of Leicester’s title winners, Marc Albrighton, will play on the left.
An ageing Steven Fletcher will probably play upfront with competition from Millwall’s Tom Bradshaw and Preston’s Louis Moult who don’t appear to be having great seasons to date.
15th is probably about right for this squad although the relative inexperience of Adrian Heath could have an impact on how the season goes.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed the reveal of the teams in the last four posts and my write-ups which have taken a fair bit of time. In the next post, I’ll be showing the results of the experiment which will be simulated in Football Manager 2020 and also the results of the prediction game. I thought it would be fun to predict what will happen in the simulation, so if you want to participate add a comment with your predictions for the following (I’ve added my guesses in too). The previous posts are linked at the top of this page if you want a refresher on who’s playing for who. The awards will be decided by FM as a result of the individual players performance over the course of the season and I will also be adding a cup competition which will probably be knockout-based to run alongside the league.

2020.05.31 02:57 m4ng4n3s3 Murder of Inga Maria Hauser (1988) - A young German backpacker in Troubles-era Northern Ireland

Background to the disappearance and murder of Inga Maria Hauser
Official Police Update on the case
UPDATE 8 July 2020: The Public Prosecution Service has announced that two men will not be charged with her murder. It was stated that there was a lack of direct evidence to link either with her disembarkation in Larne or with the forest site. DNA also did not match and it was conceded that some exhibits had been destroyed. The police investigation continues.
It is no understatement to say that Northern Ireland in 1988 was not a hot destination for the average tourist. The Troubles, the long conflict between the Provisional IRA and the British security forces had been ongoing for nearly twenty years at this point. At the time, there seemed to be no end in sight; political attempts at bringing about peace had largely failed and the first ceasefire was six years away. Murders, shootings and bombings were common; 94 people lost their lives in the region that year as a result of the conflict. It goes without saying that the tourism industry in the region was far from booming at this time.
Against this bleak backdrop, Inga Maria Hauser (DOB: 28/5/1969), 18 years old and a native of Munich, West Germany, set off from home on a solo interrail trip to Great Britain and Ireland. Like the rest of the island, Northern Ireland is famed for its welcoming people and friendliness; indeed that was certainly the case at a time when few foreign visitors came to its shores. Sadly, Inga Maria Hauser never had a chance to explore any of what Ireland had to offer. She was found dead in a remote forest in north County Antrim on 20 April 1988, some two weeks after arriving at the port of Larne and having sustained a 'vicious and ruthless assault'. It remains one of Northern Ireland's most notorious crimes not related to the conflict. To date, nobody has been convicted of her murder.
I would recommend anyone interested in the case watch the short reconstruction of Inga Maria's last movements from the episode of BBC Crimewatch UK in June 1988 (from 1:45).
Inga Maria's journey from West Germany to Scotland
Inga Maria leaves Munich Hauptbahnhof on a train bound initially for the Netherlands. She has an interrail ticket which is still something of a rite of passage for many European teenagers, particularly in the summer after they finish high school. This gives her unlimited train travel in a number of European countries over a set number of days and is usually significantly cheaper than buying individual tickets. She reaches the Hook of Holland and boards a ferry to Harwich, on England's east coast, travelling on to London by train around 31 March.
She sightsees in the British capital before setting off on a journey through Great Britain, first to Oxford (where she stays in a Youth Hostel), then west to Bath, north to Liverpool and later to Preston.
She phones home regularly and sends postcards from everywhere she goes. In one, she says: "You probably could not imagine how much I like England. I would preferably stay a year longer. And you don’t need to worry about me, for the people here are so loveable and so ready to help…" and in another: "My journey through England is wonderful - I'd rather not come back. The day after tomorrow it's on to Ireland, which pleases me most of all."
By 6 April, she has made her way to the northerly city of Inverness in the Scottish highlands, having taken a night train north from Preston. She sketches the Loch Ness Monster on a postcard but mentions that her money is running out. She cashes £20 of travellers' cheques in the city and takes a photo of the Greig Street Bridge over the River Ness. This is the last photo on her film.
After what has been a whistle-stop visit to the Highlands, she makes her way south to Glasgow, where she changes for a train bound for Ayr. At some point, she sketched another (male) passenger in her journal, which is shown on the Crimewatch clip at 4:47.
From there, she took another train along the Ayrshire coast to the town of Stranraer. At that time, it was the main ferry port for services between Scotland and Northern Ireland.
It was on this day that she made her last journal entry: "Went from Glasgow to Ayr and from there to Stranraer to get over to Ireland. Saw the sea. Beautiful and mysterious. Wonder where I stay tonight. Need more money."
The ferry to Northern Ireland
Inga Maria boarded the 7pm sailing of the Sealink Galloway Princess ferry from Stranraer to the port town of Larne in County Antrim on the scenic north-east coast of Ireland. Her inter-rail pass may have at least afforded her some discount for the ferry crossing, as rail-sail combined tickets existed at the time.
According to police, she was "wearing baseball boots and a long, flowing skirt possibly multi-coloured, a jacket, possibly denim with a large blue rucksack". On top of the rucksack was a smaller bag with a distinctive USAF badge. A witness sees Inga Maria first boarding the ferry alone as a foot passenger, with her rucksack on her back. The same witness later sees her enter the interior lounge from the deck during the crossing, this time without her rucksack. A separate witness notices Inga Maria alone on deck, again without her rucksack, which is considered the last positive sighting. The police were keen to know if she had left her rucksack unattended or if she had left it in someone's company.
Inga Maria's arrival
The Galloway Princess docked in Larne shortly after 9.30 pm on Wednesday, 6 April. Police reports at the time suggest that they did not believe that she was one of the foot passengers who disembarked and made their way to the waiting train at Larne Harbour station, which was bound for the provincial capital and main city in the region, Belfast. This is significant as one would expect that she would have taken the train; it would have been free of charge with her interrail pass.
Larne is a quiet port town and although on the coast, it is not a tourist hub. Her options for finding accommodation in Larne at that time would have been limited, whereas there would have been a greater number of hostels and B&Bs in Belfast, some twenty miles south. While the thought of arriving in Belfast in 1988, late at night with little money and no local knowledge, would have been daunting to many travellers, it is important to note that the violence in Northern Ireland rarely affected the few tourists who did visit.
There were more than a hundred vehicles on the ferry that night and a total of 422 passengers. If she did not disembark as foot passenger onto either the Belfast train or into the town of Larne, she would have to have left in a vehicle. Although vehicle checks were commonplace in Northern Ireland throughout the Troubles, persons entering NI from another UK region have never been customarily been subject to identity or customs checks.
Either way, Inga Maria was never seen alive again.
The discovery of her body
The Antrim coast road north from Larne is one of the most scenic drives in Northern Ireland. The road hugs steeps cliffs on one side and is bounded by the sea on the other, with views of the Scottish coast across the channel. Winding through a number of quaint villages, it passes by Ballypatrick Forest, slightly inland and around forty miles north of Larne by road, a journey of just over an hour.
The forest is in itself in a very sparsely populated part of County Antrim, lying between the famous Antrim glens and the seaside town of Ballycastle.
Exactly two weeks after Inga Maria's arrival in Larne, on Wednesday, 20 April 1988, a farmer was searching for sheep in a remote part of the forest (a forestry worker in other accounts), over a mile from the nearest public road and along an unsurfaced track. Having noticed something in a small clearing, he found Inga Maria's body. She had simply been dumped off the forestry track, with her belongings around her.
She had sustained a serious head injury and had a broken neck. There was also evidence of sexual assault and a frenzied attack.
Analysis and theories
Location of the body
It seems to have been her intention that she would have travelled southwards in Ireland, presumably from Belfast to Dublin, crossing the border into the Republic of Ireland. From there, she was due to travel to meet a friend in Cardiff, Wales on 11 April and it may have been her plan to get a subsequent ferry from Dun Laoghaire or Rosslare to one of the ports on the Welsh coast. This therefore makes it somewhat more unusual that her body was found forty miles north of Larne, when it is more likely she would have wished to travel south. It should be noted though that the forest is in the general direction of the Giant's Causeway UNESCO World Heritage Site, which she may have wished to see.
Alan Bailey, a retired detective superintendent in the Republic of Ireland's police force (Garda) examined the case when trying to establish if there was a link between the murder and so-called Vanishing Triangle disappearances in his own jurisdiction. Bailey notes that the body was not in any way concealed and the perpetrator made no effort to disguise Inga Maria's identity; her passport, camera and journal were all found near her body. He also believes that the perpetrator may have had good local knowledge, given that they had chosen a remote part of the forest, having had to navigate a series of tracks to arrive at the location.
Soldiers
An early line of inquiry was based on the significance of the broken neck. Investigators in the Royal Ulster Constabulary believed that someone with military training would have been capable of breaking someone's neck. Given that thousands of British troops were stationed in Northern Ireland at the time, many of whom would have trained in Forces bases in West Germany, it was thought she may have easily struck up a rapport with a 'squaddie' returning to his tour of duty by boat. Some have speculated that the British Army would have been very keen to cover up such an incident given the high tensions in Northern Ireland that year; two servicemen were killed by the IRA after they drove into a republican funeral cortege a few weeks before Inga Maria's disappearance. Footage of the soldiers being dragged from their car by the angry crowd were beamed around the world. Nevertheless, no evidence has been found of a connection with the Forces to date.
Abduction and time of death
It is not known where Inga Maria was during the two weeks before her body was found. There are no positive sightings after the ferry.
Initially, the Crimewatch reconstruction noted that a male and a female in a car had been seen acting suspiciously in the forest and that a young girl similar to Inga Maria had been seen hitchhiking near Ballycastle on 17 April. Suspicions were also raised that she may have accepted a lift in a truck, as there would have been a number of truck drivers on the ferry although it is considered unlikely that a heavy goods vehicle would have been used to dump the body given the terrain.
Alan Bailey explains that it was considered a possibility that she had been abducted and held captive for some days before being left in the forest at a later stage as there was no evidence of wildlife damage to the body. This was discounted years later after advances in forensic entomology allowed investigators to find that she had likely been in situ for the full two weeks. It is therefore probable that she was dead within hours of arriving in Northern Ireland.
There still remains a possibility that the sexual attack and murder occurred elsewhere as there was no trace evidence of either at the scene, but in any case, it was likely the body was dumped not long after 6 April.
The main theory remains that she met someone on the boat who kindly offered her a lift and perhaps even accommodation. With little money left and arriving in Larne late in the evening, Inga Maria may have graciously accepted such an offer. There is no evidence that she was in the habit of taking such risks but her desire to save money may have made her more inclined to accept the assumed kindness of a stranger.
Bailey suggests that this could have been an older man, who lured her into a false sense of security, or that the man may have been accompanied by a woman on the boat, again reassuring her that it was safe.
The DNA sample and arrest
After a DNA sample was taken and analysed by a cold case team, a male profile was found and this was considered to be that of her killer, or at least someone involved. Some 2,000 men were swabbed but no definitive matches were found.
The Press Association reported in 2018 that police believed a number of people had been involved in covering up the murder and that their focus was on the rural area around the village of Loughgiel, not far from the forest. The paper also reported that the local IRA unit launched their own investigation at the time and identified a male who lived in the area who had scratches on his face around the time. Unsurprisingly given the climate at the time, the paramilitaries did not pass their findings to the police.
In 2018, a 59 year old male was arrested, questioned and released. A file was then submitted to the Public Prosecutions Service in July 2019 to determine if any further action should be taken. There have been no further developments made public to date.
Sadly, Inga Maria's mother, Almut, died in 2019, her father having passed away some years before. Nevertheless, a memorial has been placed in Ballypatrick Forest and lawyers in Belfast remain actively pursuing justice for Inga Maria.

2020.04.03 06:32 danigra Researching ancestors with common surnames

Hi! I feel as though I've got some wires crossed here. I'm researching my 2nd great grandfather, William Stewart, and his siblings. I've seen some conflicting birth dates, but I believe he was born 9 November 1859 in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, Scotland. Died 18 April 1897 in Wheeling, WV. I believe his parents' names are William Stewart (b. about 1826 in Scotland?) and Jane Kerr (b. about 1825 in Ireland?) (unsure of exactly where). I'm having trouble discerning who his siblings are since both of his parents' names tend to be somewhat common.
So my question is how do you go about determining who is the person you're searching for versus other people who happen to have the same name?

Today in Scottish History
On this day in 1912, Alexander MacKendrick, the US born Scottish film director, screenwriter and teacher was born. MacKendrick was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and his family emigrated to Scotland soon after his birth. "Sandy" grew up in Glasgow and entered the world of cinema following an art school education and working on information productions during wartime. He was responsible for some of Ealing Studio's most classic works, and in 1949 he directed Whisky Galore!, an adaptation of Compton MacKenzie's iconoclastic tale set, and largely filmed, in the Hebrides. After the satirical wit of The Man in the White Suit (1951), and the dark, macabre comedy The Ladykillers in 1955, MacKendrick was enticed to America. In the U.S. he directed the critically acclaimed The Sweet Smell of Success, a sharp satire on the world of a New York gossip columnist. The film was a box-office failure, however, and the tensions between MacKendrick and the film's star, Burt Lancaster, undermined MacKendrick's subsequent career. He happily abandoned his cinematic career, after directing three more films, including A High Wind in Jamaica, in favour of teaching film at the California Institute of Fine Arts.
This day in 1820 saw the hanging and beheading of John Baird and Andrew Hardie in Stirling, following the Battle of Bonnymuir in April. The Radicals, who were on strike from the weaving communities in outrage at decreased wages, had marched from Glasgow towards the Carron Iron Works in Falkirk. However, their ranks had been infiltrated by government agents and they were in fact being guided to an ambush with troops outside the village of Bonnybridge. During the battle, a Lieutenant of the 10th Hussars received a wound to the hand, a sergeant was severely wounded, and four Radicals were wounded. Following the skirmishes, 88 charges of treason were brought against men from across central Scotland, but Hardie and Baird were made an example of. Nineteen other radicals, including the 15 year old Alexander Johnstone, were transported to the penal colonies of New South Wales. Hardie's declaration "I die a martyr to the cause of truth and liberty", signalled the end of the "Radical War".

  • (b) in relation to the governor, "The Governor".

County government elections

3. General elections to the assemblies

(2) The first general election is to be held on the day the Scottish Ministers may by regulations appoint for the purposes of this subsection.
(3) Regulations under subsection (2) must appoint a date not later than the day six months from the day this section comes into force.
(4) Each subsequent general election is to be held on the day four years subsequent to the day the previous general election was held.
(5) But if by virtue of subsection (4) a general election would be held on a Saturday or Sunday, that election is instead to be held on the first Thursday after the Saturday or Sunday on which the election, but for this subsection, would have been held.
(6) At each general election, there are to be returned in each county government area:
  • (a) 25 district members,
  • (b) 25 regional members, and
  • (c) a governor.
(7) Schedule 2 makes further provision about general elections to county assemblies.
4. Review of county electoral arrangements
(1) It is the duty of the Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland ("the Boundary Commission") to, from time to time:
  • (a) review the electoral arrangements for each county government area for the purpose of considering future electoral arrangements for those areas, and
  • (b) formulate proposals for those arrangements.
(2) Part 2 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 applies to such a review as it applies to a review under section 16 of that Act, except that section 17 of that Act has effect as if it required:
  • (a) the Boundary Commission to submit a report on any review before such date as the Scottish Ministers may direct, and
  • (b) the Scottish Ministers to make an order under section 17 of that Act giving effect to the proposals of the Commission submitted under subsection (1) (whether as submitted to them or with modifications).

The county assemblies

5. County ordinances
(1) Subject to section 6, each county assembly may make laws (to be known as ordinances of that county government area).
(2) A proposed ordinance is to be known as a Bill; and a Bill becomes an ordinance when it has been passed by the county assembly and has received Royal Assent.
(3) A Bill receives Royal Assent at the beginning of the day on which Letters Patent under the Scottish Seal signed with Her Majesty's own hand signifying Her Assent are recorded in the Register of the Great Seal.
(4) But Her Majesty's powers under subsection (3) are exercisable on behalf of Her Majesty by the governor for the county assembly's area.
(5) The date of Royal Assent is to be written on each ordinance by the governor and is to form a part of the ordinance.
(6) Every ordinance is to be judicially noticed.
(7) This section does not affect the power of the Scottish Parliament to make laws for a county government area.
6. Legislative competence
(1) An ordinance is not law so far as any provision of the ordinance is outside the legislative competence of the county assembly which passed the Bill for the ordinance.
(2) A provision is outside that competence so far as:
  • (a) it makes provision as respects an area other than the county government area of the county assembly,
  • (b) it relates to a reserved matter,
  • (c) it could not be made by an Act of the Scottish Parliament,
  • (d) it is inconsistent with an Act of the Scottish Parliament or an Act of Parliament, or with provision made under or by virtue of either such enactments.

(2) The governor for a county government area may by notice laid before the county assembly delegate the exercise of any of the governor's functions to one or more of the governors depute the deputy governor, subject to such restrictions as the notice may set out.
8. County general fund
(1) Each governor is to maintain a fund, known as the general fund for the governor's area.
(2) The Scottish Ministers may from time to time make such payments into the general fund for a county government area as they may determine.
(3) Sums received by a governor or an office-holder under an ordinance for that governor's area are to be paid into the general fund for that area.
(4) A sum may only be paid out of a general fund if it has been charged on the fund by:
  • (a) an Act of the Scottish Parliament, or
  • (b) an ordinance of the assembly for the governor's area.
(5) A sum paid out of the fund must not be applied for any purpose other than that for which it was charged or, as the case may be, paid out.

Cancellations to services between Glasgow Central and Ayr
Due to a problem currently under investigation at Ayr disruption is expected until 01:59 08/10.
Train services between Glasgow Central and Ayr may be cancelled.
The exclusion zone imposed by South Ayrshire Council at Ayr station is still ongoing and having an impact on our services. This is because the former hotel building next to the station has been deemed unsafe. The hotel building isnt owned or operated by ScotRail. This exclusion zone means services via Ayr will be disrupted for the foreseeable future.
Will there be further changes to services?
We will keep the matter under constant review, to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our customers along the route. This includes customers at stations along the route closer to Glasgow Central, who are impacted by the reduced capacity.
How long will this disruption last?
The disruption to our services will continue for as long as the councils exclusion zone remains in place.
How can I keep up to date with whats happening?
Please check @ScotRail on Twitter, the live departure information on our website, or download our app before starting your journey to check which services are operating.
Please use the station Help Points if you require any assistance.
We are sorry to our customers for any inconvenience caused by this situation which is outwith our control. We are working flat out to get people where they need to be.
The following service alterations will apply until further notice:
Services between Ayr and Glasgow Central will have reduced capacity because of the restrictions that have been applied by the council, as the platforms at Ayr station can only accommodate four-carriage trains. In order to provide the best possible service to customers along the route, a number of trains throughout the day will start and terminate at Prestwick Town. A replacement bus service will run between Ayr and Prestwick Town to connect with these services.
Services between Glasgow Central and Kilmarnock will run normally Monday to Saturday, with some exceptions.
Services between Paisley Gilmour Street and Glasgow Central also run normally but by starting/terminating some trains at Prestwick Town, we are able to operate longer trains on this route again.

Today in Scottish History
Today in 1821 saw the death of John Rennie, the famous engineer who constructed the Crinan Canal. Rennie was one of the greatest civil engineers of his era. His pioneering use of materials, combined with the soundness of his technical and commercial judgements on the largest and most novel projects of the time, mark him out as almost unique. Apart from Crinan Canal, he was responsible for designing a host of great civil works, from London Bridge to Leith Docks.
Today in 1883 the Boys' Brigade was founded in Glasgow by Sir William Alexander Smith. A Sunday School teacher and an officer in the army, his stated object was, the advancement of God's Kingdom among boys and the promotion of habits of reverence, discipline, self-respect, and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness. The first uniformed youth organisation in the world, from one small company of 35 boys it has grown into a worldwide organisation with companies in over 60 countries.

Today in Scottish History
On this day in 1947 the paddle steamer Waverley was launched from A. & J. Inglis's yard on the Clyde. The Waverley is the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. She was in danger of de-comissionning in the early 70s, but in 1974 she was bought by enthusiasts from the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society for the bargain price of one pound from owners CalMac. She underwent a major rebuild in 2000, and passengers can still cruise the Clyde from Glasgow to Dunoon and the isles of Bute and Arran during the summer months.
Today in 1854 the pioneer of modern urban sociology, Patrick Geddes, was born in Ballater. Along with Adam Ferguson, Geddes founded modern sociology and urban planning. Originally a botanist, it was when his sight became temporarily damaged during a trip to Mexico that he turned his attention to human society instead of the microscope, especially the problems of urban squalor in Edinburgh's Old Town. His background in ecology meant that he looked at the field from an unusual angle and led to some particularly original ideas. His theories have been globally influential - Roosevelt's New Deal policy contained more than a little of Geddes' influence.

Today in Scottish History
Today in 1999, Lena Zavaroni, Scottish pop singer, died. Born in Rothesay, she won the public's affection after appearing on Opportunity Knocks aged only 10. The pressures of success at such a young age surely contributed to her untimely death at the age of 35, after a long battle with severe anorexia nervosa.
On this day in 1763 the contract to build Edinburgh's North Bridge was signed. The main link between the Old and New Towns, the original bridge was finished in 1772. Although it was hailed as an engineering triumph, it was also seen as a symbol of the increasing social separation between the sqaulid Old Town and the affluent New Town.

Cancellations to services between Glasgow Central and Ayr
Due to a problem currently under investigation at Ayr disruption is expected until 23:59 30/09.
Train services between Glasgow Central and Ayr may be cancelled.
The exclusion zone imposed by South Ayrshire Council at Ayr station is still ongoing and having an impact on our services. This is because the former hotel building next to the station has been deemed unsafe. The hotel building isnt owned or operated by ScotRail. This exclusion zone means services via Ayr will be disrupted for the foreseeable future.
Will there be further changes to services?
We will keep the matter under constant review, to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our customers along the route. This includes customers at stations along the route closer to Glasgow Central, who are impacted by the reduced capacity.
How long will this disruption last?
The disruption to our services will continue for as long as the councils exclusion zone remains in place.
How can I keep up to date with whats happening?
Please check @ScotRail on Twitter, the live departure information on our website, or download our app before starting your journey to check which services are operating.
Please use the station Help Points if you require any assistance.
We are sorry to our customers for any inconvenience caused by this situation which is outwith our control. We are working flat out to get people where they need to be.
The following service alterations will apply until further notice:
Services between Ayr and Glasgow Central will have reduced capacity because of the restrictions that have been applied by the council, as the platforms at Ayr station can only accommodate four-carriage trains. In order to provide the best possible service to customers along the route, a number of trains throughout the day will start and terminate at Prestwick Town. A replacement bus service will run between Ayr and Prestwick Town to connect with these services.
Services between Glasgow Central and Kilmarnock will run normally Monday to Saturday, with some exceptions.

Today in Scottish History
On this day in 1915 James Kier Hardie, the Scottish Labour statesman, died. At the age of eight, Hardie worked as a delivery boy for a baker and was the sole wage earner in his family. In January 1866, he was sacked for unpunctuality after spending the night looking after his dying brother and arriving late for work. The family then moved to Lanarkshire where he got a job as a miner. Hardie never attended school, but by the age of seventeen had learned to write, and began to read newspaper accounts describing the steps that some workers were taking to improve their conditions by forming trade unions. His political career began with the formation of a union at his colliery and he led the first ever Lanarkshire miners' strike. Hardie was initially a supporter of the Liberal Party but soon formed the opinion that the working class needed their own party to represent them. His first attempt to enter the House of Commons in 1888 ended in failure, but he was elected as the first socialist MP in 1892 when he was returned as the Independent Labour candidate for West Ham South. He lost his seat in 1895, but was returned in 1900 as the MP for Merthyr Tydfil.
On this day in 1994 Jessie Kesson, the author of Another Time Another Place, died. She was born an illegitimate child in the workhouse in Inverness in 1916. When her mother fell ill, Jessie was removed from her care, and she grew up in an orphanage in Aberdeenshire. Although encouraged by her schoolmaster to attend university, this was against orphanage policy and she was sent into farm service. She suffered a nervous breakdown through frustration of her talents and spent a year in a mental hospital. Throughout the 1940s and 50s she wrote over 30 plays and programmes for BBC Radio Aberdeen and gradually became an acclaimed writer. She moved first to Glasgow and then to London and continued to produce more plays and novels, including Another Time, Another Place, based on the experiences of Italian prisoners of war on Orkney.
