Egypt’s suicide rate reached 7.2, while Libya scored a high rate of 8.7. WHO International Suicide DataAccording to WHO’s data, “close to 800 000 people die due to suicide every year, which is one person every 40 seconds.”“Suicide occurs throughout the lifespan and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds globally,” says the organization. Globally, 79% of suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries. read more

Guatemala UN launches flash appeal following deadly floods mudslides

October 6, 2019 0 Comments

The UN, in conjunction with the Government, has identified priorities for international emergency relief assistance, including water, sanitation and hygiene, food, shelter and household items, health services, communication and access to services. “The availability of food will be curtailed in the short-term,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a statement, noting that there had been more than 900 landslides and entire villages had been swept away. Over the weekend, the UN Resident Coordinator activated the Disaster Management Team (DMT) to provide initial food and health aid, while a seven-member UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) team has been deployed to the Central American country. Among material assistance provided by UN agencies are large quantities of medical supplies including re-hydration salts and antibiotics, a mobile water treatment plant, and food aid. Technical expertise has been provided in the areas of health, nutrition, water and sanitation, planning, social protection and education. UN organizations mobilizing assistance include the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), World Food Programme (WFP), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Development Programme (UNDP), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and UN Volunteers (UNV). Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator Margareta Wahlström will be travelling to Guatemala shortly in order to help the relief efforts. Among the issues she will address are problems accessing the devastated area. The director of OCHA’s New York Office, Ed Tsui, told a news briefing in New York today some people will not allow the army in due to its past activities in the now-ended civil war. read more

Football Campbell and McLaurin play at Ohio Stadium one last time

September 28, 2019 0 Comments

Ohio State redshirt senior wide receiver Terry McLaurin (83) celebrates after downing Drue Chrisman’s punt within the five-yard line in the third quarter of the game against Michigan State on Nov. 10. Ohio State won 26-6. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorOhio State’s season has been an emotional one for the wide receiver room.The veteran core, which includes three redshirt seniors — Parris Campbell, Terry McLaurin and Johnnie Dixon — began the season in controversy after former wide receivers coach Zach Smith was fired for allegations of domestic abuse.Now, after a season full of ups and downs, Ohio State still remains a Michigan win away from a trip to the Big Ten championship.“The Game” will be the last one at Ohio Stadium for McLaurin and Campbell, and the pair of two-time captains expect to be emotional in their final chance for a win in front of the home crowd.“I can’t quite let my emotions get in the way of everything. I’ll see my parents down there and I know that will be a little emotional for me,” McLaurin said.Campbell said this game is “everything” to him.“Everything is on the line for us as a team, everything is on the line for me as a senior playing the last game in the Horseshoe,” Campbell said. “I guess I never really thought I would be sitting here saying that.  But it’s here, so it’s everything.”To get here, the pair of veteran receivers had to overcome adversity.From the offseason controversy to a loss against Purdue, moving forward into Michigan following an overtime win against Maryland, the road to 10-1 has been anything but smooth.Both McLaurin and Campbell said the expectations, the critics, the adversity, it’s just a part of being in an Ohio State uniform.“People are always going to write off Ohio State no matter what,” Campbell said. “We could be undefeated right now and people would still write us off.  That’s what comes with being a Buckeye.”But for the pair of veteran receivers, the road to “The Game” doesn’t matter.Campbell has amassed 1,626 total yards and 14 total touchdowns in his four years at Ohio State. This season, he leads Ohio State with 66 catches and nine receiving touchdowns.Being an Akron native, Campbell knows the stakes in the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry from far before being a part of it. He said all that matters from here on out is the week ahead.“Obviously, we’ve had our hurdles. We’ve had ups and downs of adversity hit us left and right. I kind of feel like we’ve been in a title fight this whole season. We were getting uppercutted and hooked all over the place,” Campbell said. “Our mindset now is to worry about the team up north. Everything that we want, everything that we set out for is right there in front of us.”For McLaurin, his history with the rivalry is a bit different.Being born in Indianapolis, McLaurin didn’t have the exposure Campbell had until gearing up in a Buckeye uniform.But that has not stopped McLaurin from playing like he was born with Ohio State in his blood.McLaurin has 70 career catches for 1,129 yards and 17 touchdowns, and is tied with Campbell for the team-lead with nine touchdowns this season.Where McLaurin separates himself is on special teams, making the effort plays that have captured the attention of players and coaches alike.It caught the attention of head coach Urban Meyer so much that Meyer jokingly said he would name his next kid Terry if he had one.“I have always wanted to be the guy who did the right thing and worked hard,” McLaurin said. “I just wanted to be a guy you could depend on on and off the field, who was going to make your program better. For him to think of me in that aspect is pretty cool.” McLaurin is aware of the adversity the wide receivers have faced this season. He knows the highs and the lows that have come in his final year, and he said it has made his final season the hardest one.“This is probably the toughest year that I’ve been apart of just with the ups and downs and the outside noise,” McLaurin said. “We’re trying to control what we can control inside of this building and making sure that I am helping and making all the plays that I can. That’s been my main focus.” Now, the long road has just one final home game on its path. There is still a chance to make another Big Ten Championship, still a chance to go to another College Football Playoff. But for now, Michigan, with the No. 1 defense in the country, is the focus.Campbell knows emotions will be high.“It’s been a long road. You come into that stadium and look up and see 110,000,” Campbell said. “My family will be waiting for me at the end of the line. I’m sure I will be emotional but you know I’m not going to let that get in the way of what’s at stake. Come kickoff there is still a mission ahead. I’m sure it will be an emotional time but I’m not going to let it get in the way.”The emotions are undeniable, but McLaurin’s focus goes past that.Regardless of the outcome, regardless of the future matchups that await the Buckeyes, McLaurin just wants to be remembered. He wants his last game at home to show everything he has put into his time as a Buckeye.“Suiting up for the last time in Ohio Stadium, I just hope people know that I gave it everything I have on offense, special teams, as a leader,” McLaurin said. “I worked hard from when I was a recruit to when I walk out of the door. Going out with a win, that’s what I hope to accomplish this week.” read more

300 Acer Iconia Tab A100 Android 32 tablet hits the US in

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgThe Acer Iconia Tab A100 stirred a lot of interest when the 7-inch, Android Honeycomb slate was first announced. Some of that initial excitement has waned, due in no small part to repeated delays — which Acer has pinned on Honeycomb compatibility issues. Now it finally looks as though there’s light at the end of the tunnel: the A100 will arrive on U.S. retail shelves next month and it should be priced at around $300.Pre-order pages have already started popping up around the web, but prices appear to be a bit out of line at the moment. Excalibur PC is asking $329, while Negri Electronics lists the A100 at $390. Expansys has a pre-order button up as well, but they have yet to post a price.So what will you hard-earned cash get you with the Iconia Tab A100? The 7-incher features a 1024×600 pixel display and sports Android Honeycomb (believed to be 3.2), a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, SDHC expansion with support for up to 32GB, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 1530mAH battery. It’s also fairly light, tipping the scales at about 450 grams.That $300 price point puts the A100 in a sweet spot for consumers, though one of Acer’s competitors is said to be preparing a price drop at around the same time as the A100 launch. Asus just might bump the already reasonable Eee Pad Transformer down from it’s current $399, which would certainly make things a bit more interesting. There’s also the 8-inch tablet from Vizio hovering as well — currently selling for $329 on Amazon.Regardless of whether or not the A100 is a retail success for Acer remains to be seen, but it looks like we’re in for some exciting price battles when it comes to Android tablets.More at Liliputinglast_img read more

Best Buy offering free Nexus S Android phone today only

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgIf you’ve been on the fence about buying a new phone, perhaps today’s deal will persuade you. Best Buy is offering the Nexus S phone for free today only. Of course, the store isn’t just throwing free phones to any passersby; there’s a two-year contract that goes with the free phone. If you want just the phone without a contract, you’ll still have to pay at least $529.99.The good news is that you can choose between Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T as your service provider… sorry Verizon. Without today’s deal, the phone normally costs $99 or $199, depending on the carrier.The Nexus runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and is so far the only phone that works directly with Google Wallet and NFC. If you were hoping to see that sort of integration in the next iPhone, the future doesn’t look good for an NFC-enabled iPhone 5, so that’s just another reason to consider the Samsung-manufacturered Nexus S.The phone also has a 1Ghz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor, 16GB of internal flash memory, a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing camera, and a Super AMOLED 4-inch WVGA display (800 x 480).The offer ends at 11:59 p.m. CST, so hurry. You can buy it both online and at your local Best Buy store.last_img read more

Opinion Is Brexit advancing the cause of Scottish independence from the UK

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

first_img As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Opinion: Is Brexit advancing the cause of Scottish independence from the UK? ‘Scottish Independence in the context of Brexit is like Schrödinger’s Cat – it’s both alive and dead depending on who you ask’, writes Gareth Brown. Tuesday 12 Mar 2019, 7:00 AM GIVEN THE CALAMITOUS state of the UK’s negotiation of its withdrawal from the European Union, the fairly comprehensive Brexit referendum result in Scotland, and the relatively small gap in the opinion polling evidence on Scottish independence, you could be forgiven for wondering – ‘what are the Scots waiting for’?However, closer inspection of the Scottish National Party’s (SNP) handling of Brexit, considered alongside some of the tensions on ‘home turf’ exposes a real strategic paradox for the SNP.The SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon regularly says that she will announce plans for a second independence referendum, but has yet to do so.During the independence referendum in 2014, Scots were warned that by voting in favour of independence they would be putting at risk their membership of the EU and the SNP won the Scottish Parliament election on a manifesto commitment that said that if Brexit were to go ahead they would push for another independence referendum. That is if Scotland were to be ‘dragged’ out of the EU against its will (which it will be), and the views of the Scottish Government or Scottish Parliament are ignored, they would have grounds to demand a re-run of the independence referendum.But the problem is that support for independence has not really increased beyond its 2014 level of 45% – and the appetite for another vote is fairly low.Much to the disbelief and angst of many in the SNP’s, they do not appear to be any closer to winning such a vote, even in the extraordinary political times we’re living in.The reality for the SNP, since 24 June 2016, has been far from straightforward and rife with strategic indecisiveness.To make sense of this, it’s important to consider the parallel universe the SNP was hoping for as opposed to the one in which it now finds itself.ChallengesWhen Nicola Sturgeon succeeded Alex Salmond as leader of the SNP and First Minister of Scotland in 2014, there was supposed to be a well-deserved break from the previous two years of independence-mania.Her focus was to be on governing Scotland and taking the time (a long time) to examine the detailed reasons for their narrow defeat.The problem with this strategy was that the membership of the SNP doubled as a result of the independence referendum and many of those members are itching for another ballot.Nicola Sturgeon shares this woe with any nationalist leader in power – the need to reconcile the two, often mutually exclusive imperatives of governing domestically but advancing constitutional nationalism for your base.Fast forward to the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, just two months before the EU referendum, and just a year after the unprecedented whitewash result for the SNP in the 2015 General Election.Nicola Sturgeon is returned as First Minister with a greater share of the vote, albeit with fewer seats, on a manifesto which neatly dealt with the issue of independence.Whilst the time was not yet right for another vote, if the situation were to materially change, for example by Scotland voting to remain in the EU but the rest of the UK voting to leave, then it would be a different story.Of course, the problem arose when that material change, well, materialised.The mathsRushed into making a political decision in a matter of hours that would ultimately define her career, Nicola Sturgeon fired the starting gun on independence in the hope that the national sense of outrage and injustice would see a surge in the polls for a ‘Yes’ vote on Scottish independence.But other than a brief increase to 59% the Sunday immediately after the vote, such a surge has not transpired.Since then the SNP has found itself navigating a set of tricky currents in the ‘Yes’ movement.There are some within the party who believe the chaos of a ‘no deal’ Brexit could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for many soft Scottish Unionists who voted Remain.But then there are others who believe that the movement has not learned the lessons from the previous effort, and isn’t prepared for another vote.The voter arithmetic is very complex. One of the main problems is that one in three SNP voters actually voted to leave the European Union, and almost a quarter of those voters, knowing the SNP’s policy is for an Independent Scotland to immediately rejoin the EU have now switched their allegiance to a UK outside the EU.Contrary to initial expectations, the so-called “Yes Leavers”  (those who voted in favour of independence from both the UK and the EU) have offset the soft Remain ‘No’ voters who now favour independence in order to stay in the EU.Those two cohorts have effectively replaced each other, meaning there has been little or no overall swing in favour of independence. This dilemma explains the same constructive ambiguity on independence that the SNP has used to batter the Labour leadership on its Brexit position – although this ambiguity caused the SNP significant losses in the 2017 snap General Election.As such, the SNP position on Brexit has evolved alongside its thinking on independence.At one point, the First Minister travelled to London to make the case for what effectively formed the basis of Tory backbencher, Nick Boles’ Norway Plus model, which envisaged that Britain could leave the EU but remain in the single market. But when that proposal eventually got to the House of Commons some Scottish National Party MPs refused to back it. Now the SNP’s favoured Brexit route is another referendum or People’s Vote.Many in the party are deeply uncomfortable with this position given that it’s a slippier slope than Ben Nevis on a cold day because of the likely difficulties in successfully negotiating a Scottish withdrawal agreement from the UK.Scottish Independence in the context of Brexit is Nicola Sturgeon’s Schrödinger’s Cat – it’s both alive and dead depending on who you ask.Gareth Brown is a political commentator, former Stormont adviser and a political consultant with Edinburgh-based communications firm, Message Matters.

Uninsured to receive healthcare under new scheme

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In recognition of the fact that hundreds of thousands of Greeks have lost access to free or state-subsidized healthcare due to the economic crisis, the government will next year grant 100,000 people passes that will allow them to be treated at public hospitals without any charge. Sources said on Wednesday that the yearlong “tickets” will be given to the long-term unemployed and members of families that live beneath the poverty line. Most Greeks lose their access to free healthcare when their 12-month unemployment benefit expires. The jobless rate in Greece is currently just over 25 percent. The Health Ministry is due to announce the details of the scheme in the coming days but it appears that at least initially it will span two years, with 100,000 people receiving the healthcare passes each year. The ministry is also due to announce a program that will provide home healthcare for patients with chronic illnesses and uninsured Greeks who need outpatient treatment after surgery. The schemes are to be partly financed by European Union structural funds. Health Minister Andreas Lykourentzos said on Wednesday that he wants to improve the rate of absorption of EU funds in the health sector. He revealed that so far Greece has taken up less than 7 percent of the funds made available by the EU but the government is aiming to raise this to 48 percent by the end of 2014. The poor absorption rate means that the next package of structural funding for healthcare from the EU will be reduced by about 60 million euros, from 328 million to 270 million.

Inslee tours Providence Academy leaves his mark

September 19, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgHolding on to a rickety wooden ladder, Gov. Jay Inslee leaned over and signed the interior wall of the cupola at Providence Academy.During a tour Saturday of the massive downtown Vancouver building, Inslee joined in on the longtime tradition and added his name to the wall’s already rich history.And rightfully so. Earlier this year, Inslee signed a supplemental capital budget that secured $1 million to make much-needed upgrades to the Providence Academy.Alongside local dignitaries, Inslee took in the many details of the 142-year-old building. He admired the vaulted ceilings of the building’s chapel before pulling aside a bride to tell her that if her husband-to-be should get out of line, she should call her governor.But more impressive than the original moulding was learning that the building was home to about 65 businesses. That meant, Inslee said, the $1 million would also benefit economic development.“The delight is that (the investment) is not just preserving an amazing part of the state’s history, but you’ve got 65 nascent businesses here,” Inslee said. “It’s rare where you get historical asset where you can do so much with present usage.”The building dates back to 1871, when Mother Joseph of the Sisters of Providence planned, fundraised and oversaw the building of the massive brick cross-shaped building. It opened in 1874 as an orphanage and school. It was the first of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and the biggest building on the West Coast north of San Francisco.last_img read more

Jay Z Takes On A World Tour At Austin City Limits 2017

first_imgAs hundreds of thousands of fans piled out of Zilker Park, phrases of awe pervaded conversations. In years to come, many will study the Jay Z blueprint in the hopes to replicate his savvy and success, while pondering what the key ingredient has been to his 20-plus-year career in the music business.As he once told Forbes, “The genius thing that we did was we didn’t give up.”See All Of Our Coverage Of Austin City Limits 2017Read more Dropping hit tracks from a career stretching all that way back to 1996, the legendary lyricist reminded a packed Austin, Texas, crowd why he is one of the most honored rappers in GRAMMY historyOgden PayneGRAMMYs Oct 8, 2017 – 10:57 am For Jay Z, timing is everything. Throughout his two-decade-long career, his affinity for punctuality has trickled down to his fans, largely due to the extensive timepiece collection he often references, and the titling of his latest album. Jay Z Takes On A World Tour At Austin City Limits 2017 NETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO May 20, 2015 – 11:12 am Jay Z, Linkin Park Win Best Rap/Sung Collaboration As the quacking claps of his GRAMMY-winning song “Run This Town” underscored the deafening praise from the crowd, an unspoken pact was made: For the next hour and a half, Shawn “Jay Z” Carter called the shots.While Shawn Carter may be a man of punctuality, Jay Z lives by his own rules. The two personas battle one another in an internal paradox that plays itself out in the rapper’s latest effort, 4:44, and oozed into his ACL performance.The Brooklyn, N.Y., native used his set list to take Austinites on a round-trip flight across the world, beginning by lyrically listing his illicit activities in Marcy Projects to boasting about his aristocratic experiences in Paris. Songs of remorse and vulnerability were sprinkled in between his most popular cuts, including the GRAMMY-winning collaboration with Alicia Keys, “Empire State Of Mind.”At Jay’s behest, attendees across the park raised their arms and put their index fingers and thumbs together to form the immortal Roc-A-Fella diamond. Though the dynasty he built with former business partner Dame Dash is no more, Jay Z’s effortless mix of music and business permeated across cultures and prompted fans, some half his age, to commit his lyrics to memory. “His music grows with him,” 21 Savage told GRAMMY.com of Jay Z’s ability to stay relevant. “He ain’t just rapping about the same thing he was rapping about when he first came out, so that’s what keeps it interesting, because as he grows as a man and does more stuff business-wise, he applies that to the music, so that’s why I think he’s been able to grow like that and stay around.””I told you [in] ‘96 that I came to take this s***, and I did!” Jay emphatically declared during his live rendition of “Heart Of The City.”At the time he originally recorded the track in 2001, the statement might not have been more than bravado. Now, his 21-year-long résumé confirms his spot atop hip-hop’s throne. Since the release of his debut album, Reasonable Doubt, in 1996, Jay has garnered 21 GRAMMY wins alongside fourteen No. 1 albums, selling more than 36 million units worldwide. Just days before his highly anticipated album 4:44 was due, he received the title as the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.Who Are The Top GRAMMY Winners Of All Time?”I remember when rap was said to be a fad,” he wrote on Twitter. “We are now alongside some of the greatest writers in history.”Jay Z’s point of view often came from that of a have-not, “from the school of the hard knocks.” However, his rock-influenced production of “99 Problems” and emotional tribute to friend and collaborator Chester Bennington proved that his vast catalog resonates with people from all walks of life. Email Facebook Privy to this detail, festivalgoers at Austin City Limits 2017 sprinted across Zilker Park to ensure they did not miss the opening notes of his set, scheduled for 8:15 p.m. But as the official call time passed, it was apparent that for Jay Z fans, patience is a virtue.At 8:27, the black veil covering the American Express stage dropped, revealing an oversized black balloon animal, shaped like a dog, sculpted by artist Jeff Koons. Shoulders swaying, Jay Z leisurely strolled to center stage, clad in a white T-shirt, black jeans, high-top Nikes, and his signature Roc Nation hat. As he scanned the crowd, a faint smirk appeared.

They all represent the next generation in software development and management. In this brave new world, programmers will often set up the application — and the software will do the rest. Driven by big data, deep learning systems, and consumer demand, you may be investing in self-learning programs sooner than you think.Related: The Rise of Artificial Intelligence in Cyber DefenseWhat is self-learning software?Self-learning, often referred to as machine learning, is a form of AI. While it doesn’t allow software programs to perfectly mimic the human experience as it would in true artificial intelligence, it does give programs an added layer of sophistication and the ability to recognize patterns, learn from data, and become more intelligent over time.Self-learning technology is different than traditional programming. The systems use basic prediction models, a set of parameters that the computer can use to make decisions, and a learning component that allows the system to change the parameters based on experience. Over time, using this cyclical system, a computer can transform its own model and parameters to fit its experience with predictions and real-world outcomes.Codes and signals behind deep learning technology are remarkably complex, but they give applications the ability to optimize their user experiences. For the end user, the process of using the system can get easier and more helpful with each use.Related: 5 Ways Artificial Intelligence Is Shaping the Future of EcommerceTransforming the world in real time.Self-learning software is already seeping into daily life. Most smart device users have experience with at least one of the aforementioned self-learning solutions. Here are a few of the self-learning solutions on the market today:Siri, Cortana, Google Assistant, and Alexa. These four machine learning solutions provide similar functionality and act as technological assistants in today’s world. Siri is available on Apple devices and has been around since 2011. Cortana is available in Microsoft products, Google Assistant is Google’s version, and Alexa is Amazon’s version of the assistant. Over time, these products use similar machine learning and language processing programming to engage in more meaningful ways with the end user. Watch these programs over the next few years. While they all serve a basically similar function today, each parent company may take the technology in a different direction. Google and Alexa may compete for in-home services, while Siri and Cortana primarily stay on mobile devices.IBM Watson. Here’s a general review of IBM’s question answering computer system that was originally developed to take down human contestants on the TV game show Jeopardy back in 2011. Watson is an integrated platform that uses machine learning and language processing to provide end users with relevant data in any number of areas. Consider Watson the nerdy, workaholic friend of Siri and Cortana. Used primarily in business environments, Watson can uncover and answer customer questions, identify complete answers to questions from stacks of documents, and identify meaningful patterns in big data sets that companies collect and manage today.TensorFlow. A different type of machine learning solution, this software gives anyone with access to computer software the ability to develop their own self-programmable smart computer. The open source collection of software puts machine learning capabilities in the hands of enterprising developers.Related: Facebook Developing Artificial Intelligence to Flag Offensive Live VideosPredicting the future in self-learning software.Machine learning is already here, and it’s poised to grow. The next generation of tech giants may arise from the shift toward self-learning software. This software will optimize the technology for driverless vehicles. It may also help companies avoid downtime associated with technical errors and transform the way that cybersecurity firms approach the modern threat landscape.In the future, we may “train” our computers, phones, and wearables instead of downloading applications and changing settings. Smarter systems will impact almost every aspect of the technological experience.Consider every piece of technology you use today, including your mobile devices, workplace applications, games, and smart wearables. Self-learning software will optimize, streamline, and update the user experience associated with many of these technological assets. Are you ready for smarter programs and machines?

Mexicos Peña Nieto pledge to find students falls short for families

The families held their own news conference across town an hour later, demanding results from the investigation that after five weeks has failed to determine whether the missing students are dead or alive.The families believe the missing students are still alive, said Felipe de la Cruz, a representative of the parents. They called on international human rights officials to join the search, citing the lack of success from the Mexican government.“We don’t trust in the government’s work,” de la Cruz said. He spoke to a dimly lit auditorium packed with journalists at a human rights center as dozens of relatives of the students stood behind him holding posters showing the faces of the missing.“Despite all of the force of the state, we don’t have anything,” he said.Federal officials conducting the investigation say the students were handed over by local police to a drug gang in the city of Iguala after they tried to disrupt a public event held by the wife of then-Mayor José Luis Abarca. Investigators are in the process of identifying remains from mass graves in Iguala and a nearby town, and Abarca, his wife and the police chief are fugitives and suspects in the disappearance, Attorney General Jesús Murillo said at a news conference on Oct. 28.Excelsior newspaper reported Thursday that state authorities found another mass grave with 13 bodies in the town of Zitlala. Parents and relatives of 43 missing students in Guerrero state listen during a press conference after a meeting with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto in Mexico City on Oct. 29, 2014. Francisco Canedo/AFPThe case has highlighted corruption among local authorities and the weak rule of law in a country that has seen more than 70,000 deaths in drug-related violence since 2006, according to Mexico City-based newspaper Milenio. The crisis is dimming Peña Nieto’s legislative successes aimed at bolstering private-sector investment in oil, gas, telecommunications and other industries, according to political consultant Alfonso Zarate.Peña Nieto’s meeting with the families came after nationwide protests last week and Ángel Aguirre, the governor of Guerrero State, took an indefinite leave of absence. Investigations into the disappearance of the students led federal authorities to take over security in 12 Guerrero towns last week after uncovering alleged links between local police and organized crime.Representatives of the students and their families said they’ll stage protests in various cities nationwide on Nov. 5.The police in Iguala, about 180 kilometers (112 miles) southwest of Mexico City, handed over the students from a local teachers college to drug gang members, who then took them to an area where mass graves were found, Murillo said Oct. 22.Another grave was found in the nearby town of Cocula, and police from both towns have been detained in the investigation. Authorities are still in the process of determining whether the remains in any of the graves are those of the students, Murillo said on Oct. 28.The disappearances followed protests by the students on Sept. 26 and 27 that left six people dead. Abarca took leave last month before he and his wife disappeared, and he was stripped of his immunity from prosecution last week.With assistance from Brendan Case in Mexico City.See also: Disappearances and drug cartels: the whispered secret of southern Mexico© 2014, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

But it’ll be Skelton, who threw for 131 yards and one touchdown against two interceptions in the preseason, who will guide the offense in the opener. Comments   Share   Top Stories In Kolb’s absence last season, Skelton led the Cardinals to a 5-2 record as the starter. His success in 2011 may have helped him lock up the job this season.Kolb completed 22-of-37 passes for 203 yards in four preseason games, and his quarterback rating (49.7) was slightly lower than Skelton’s (50.6).Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt is scheduled to speak at a press conference at 2:00 p.m. Arizona time Friday, and it will be covered live on Arizona Sports 620. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ John Skelton will start at quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals’ season opener a week from Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium.At least, that’s what NFL Reporter and XM radio host Adam Caplan is reporting.

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterSolar panels and electric cars may not be the first things that come to mind when you think of the luxurious lifestyle of the city-state, but Monaco is leading the way when it comes to a sustainable future in Europe.To share details of the principality’s new identity, Visit Monaco, in association with Monte-Carlo’s largest hospitality group, Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer (SBM), Monacair and L’Orangerie Liqueur, hosted a Monaco Soirée on Sydney Harbour on the evening of Tuesday 11 September. Just 50 guests were invited aboard superyacht Ghost II for an exclusive cocktail reception with the Monaco delegation of Alice Gentils (Monte-Carlo SBM Director of Sales), Sophie Ducroux (Monte-Carlo SBM Business Development APAC), Hadrien Bourely (Honorary Consul of Monaco – NSW, QLD, NT), Anthony Knox (representative Monte-Carlo SBM for Australia), Alison Roberts-Brown (Visit Monaco Regional Director Australia & NZ) and Lena Froelich (Visit Monaco Regional Manager Australia & NZ).Ghost II is one of Sydney Harbour’s most luxurious superyachtsMonte-Carlo SBM, who, earlier this year, unveiled the ultra-luxurious Princess Grace Suite at Hôtel de Paris, updated the industry on the latest news happening in its portfolio of properties including the 2019 relaunch of the iconic five-star Hôtel de Paris after a four-year multi-million-dollar renovation and the opening of One Monte-Carlo, a brand-new Business Tourism Hub right on Casino Square, scheduled to launch in 2019.Visit Monaco’s new campaign promotes the principality’s environmental credentialsMonaco: On track to carbon neutralityVisit Monaco recently launched a ‘Green is the New Glam’ campaign driven by the principality’s mission to be carbon neutral by 2050 and promoting Monaco as a destination that is as environmentally conscious as it is glamorous.Over canapés, champagne and L’Orangerie cocktails, guests learned that it is His Serene Highness (HSH) Prince Albert II who is leading the environmental charge. His charity, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, has funded studies and projects from Africa to Antarctica, with HSH himself taking an active role (a legacy of his great-great-grandfather, Albert I, the ‘Explorer Prince’). In his homeland – the second-smallest nation in the world behind the Vatican at just two square kilometres – small changes are gradually having a big impact.L’Orangerie is an authentic orange liquor from Monaco, made from the left-over orange rinds of local restaurants and hotels.Already, Monaco’s carbon dioxide emissions are a quarter below 1990 levels and its ambitious target is in sight. Residents eschewing the latest Lamborghini or Ferrari in favour of electric vehicles are rewarded with up to €9,000, and there is a country-wide fleet of Mobee vehicles – all-electric, tandem-seat Renault Twizys – as a car-share system. Waste water is treated and recycled and seawater is used for the cooling towers of major buildings. Monte-Carlo SBM has come on board with dedicated ‘Green Teams’, solar panels installed on rooftops and underground heat pumps, which power the entire central heating and air-conditioning system of the Fairmont Monte-Carlo. Even the emblematic Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix has a green incarnation, the all-electric Formula E Grand Prix. Contrary to trends elsewhere in Europe, green space in the city-state is actually increasing thanks to public and private parkland and Terre de Monaco, a sustainable urban agriculture project led by Swiss ex-model, Jessica Sbaraglia, that sees organic produce grown on the few flat spaces left in the principality. The project even runs the on-site kitchen garden of Monte-Carlo Bay hotel’s Michelin-starred Blue Bay restaurant.Protection of the oceans has been a Monégasque mission since the creation of the Oceanographic Institute under Albert I. The venerable organisation was headed for three decades by Jacques Cousteau, the French adventurer, marine conservationist and documentarian, and today remains an important base for raising awareness on issues from microalgae bloom to plastic pollution.Monaco delegation at Philippe restaurant, Melbourne (left to right): Sophie Ducroux (Monte-Carlo SBM Business Development APAC), Anthony Knox (representative Monte-Carlo SBM for Australia), Alice Gentils (Monte-Carlo SBM Director of Sales), Professor Tim Flannery, Alison Roberts-Brown (Visit Monaco Regional Director Australia &NZ) and Lena Froelich (Visit Monaco Regional Manager Australia & NZ).The Monaco Tourism Roadshow continued to Melbourne, where guests were treated to a sit-down dinner at Philippe restaurant. Special guest of the night was Professor Tim Flannery, Australia’s leading conservationist and a Foundation Board Member of the Prince Albert II Foundation. At both events, guests got to sample L’Orangerie, an authentic orange liquor from Monaco made from the left-over orange rinds of local restaurants and hotels.Lead image: The Monaco delegation on board Ghost II in Sydney Harbour (left to right): Lena Froelich (Visit Monaco Regional Manager Australia & NZ), Alison Roberts-Brown (Visit Monaco Regional Director Australia & NZ), Anthony Knox (representative Monte-Carlo SBM for Australia), Hadrien Bourely (Honorary Consul of Monaco – NSW, QLD, NT), Alice Gentils (Monte-Carlo SBM Director of Sales) and Sophie Ducroux (Monte-Carlo SBM Business Development APAC).Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

If I did something wrong, it would be my fault,” Copperfield said during questioning by Cox’s lawyer, Benedict Morelli.“Your defence in this case is … if they participate and someone gets hurt, it’s their fault, not yours. Is that accurate?” Morelli asked. “Yes or no?”“It’s not a simple yes-or-no answer,” Copperfield responded in a barely audible voice.Morelli contends that before Cox fell, the group of audience volunteers participating in the illusion was hustled through an alley coated with what he called construction dust. The people were taking part in a signature illusion that appeared to make them vanish onstage and appear a few moments later in the back of the theatre.Copperfield said he didn’t know whether there as a powdery residue near a trash bin in an MGM Grand alley. He said he passed through the same outdoor alley alone while performing another illusion about 10 minutes earlier, and didn’t notice any debris.“If in fact there was construction dust, could that be your fault if someone fell and got hurt?” Morelli asked.Copperfield responded that he couldn’t answer a hypothetical question before proceedings ended for the day.The 61-year-old performer is due to return to the witness stand next Tuesday for more testimony in Clark County District Court.Cox, a resident of Kent, England, claims lasting brain and body injuries and more than $400,000 in medical expenses. He and his wife, Minh-Hahn Cox, are seeking unspecified damages in their lawsuit, which also names as defendants the MGM Grand, show producer Backstage Employment and Referral, and construction firm Team Construction Management.Copperfield’s lawyers lost pretrial bids to close proceedings to the public to avoid disclosing performance secrets, although Judge Mark Denton has said some portions of Copperfield’s testimony might still be conducted behind closed doors. Illusionist David Copperfield appears in court Wednesday, April 18, 2018, in Las Vegas.
