first_imgBadaun (UP): Giving her own twist to a recent remark by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, BSP chief Mayawati Saturday said her party wanted both Ali and Bajrang Bali — particularly Bajrang Bali as the deity is “linked with my own Dalit caste”.Addressing a rally in Badaun, Mayawati recalled Adityanath’s comment on Tuesday in which he referred to her earlier appeal to Muslims to vote for the opposition alliance in Uttar Pradesh. “In this connection, I want to tell him (Adityanath) that both Ali and Bajrang Bali Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’are ours…. So we want both Ali as well as Bajrang Bali,” she said. Adityanath had said if Ali was with the BSP-SP-RLD combine, Bajrang Bali was with the BJP. Ali is a revered figure in Islam and Lord Hanuman is often called Bajrang Bali. Both Mayawati and Adityanath were served notices by the Election Commission over their remarks. “We particularly want Bajrang Bali because he is linked to my own Dalit caste,” Mayawati said. The BSP chief was apparently referring to Adityanath’s comments last year when he had described Lord Hanuman as a forest dweller and a Dalit. “I am very thankful to Yogi-ji that he has given us important information about our ancestors. So, it is a very happy moment to note that we have both Ali and Bajrang Bali and their coming together will give us very good results in these elections,” she said.last_img read more

VANCOUVER — The company building a 670-kilometre natural gas pipeline from northeastern British Columbia to the coast in Kitimat, B.C., says clearing along a section of the pipeline route has been suspended because some work began before required assessments were in place.Coastal GasLink says in a statement that an internal audit determined archaeological impact assessments were not done before construction began at two points along the pipeline route east of Kitimat. The assessments are conditions for the BC Oil and Gas Commission permit and the Environmental Assessment Certificate which allowed construction of the pipeline that will carry natural gas to a plant under construction in Kitimat.The company says it has suspended all clearing activity along a portion of the pipeline until an internal review is complete and measures are in place to ensure similar incidents can’t happen again.One of the sections that hadn’t been assessed measured 600 metres long by 50 metres wide, while the other was 240 metres by 10 metres, and Coastal GasLink says both sections bordered areas that had been assessed and were found to have a low likelihood of archeological significance.The $6.2 billion pipeline is a crucial part of the $40 billion LNG Canada project in northern B.C.David Pfeiffer, President, Coastal GasLink Pipelines Ltd., says the company is committed to protecting B.C.’s environmental and cultural values.“Coastal GasLink regrets the errors that led to construction activities taking place without having approved archaeological impact assessments in place prior to the start of construction,” he says in the statement.The company has also apologized to local Indigenous communities and requested their participation in a proposed post-impact assessment, Pfeiffer says.Construction of the pipeline caused controversy in January when 14 people were arrested while opposing the work south of Houston, but criminal contempt charges against the protesters were dropped several months later.The Canadian Press read more

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Microsoft chairman Bill Gates choked up while reading from prepared remarks during Steve Ballmer’s final shareholders meeting as chief executive.The co-founder of the software giant said progress was being made to find Ballmer’s replacement and he thanked him for serving as CEO for the last 13 years. Only Gates and Ballmer have led Microsoft Corp. since its founding in 1975.Gates grew emotional while saying that both he and Ballmer are committed to making sure “that the next CEO is the right person for the right time for the company we both love.”Ballmer, who said in August that he would step down within 12 months, was mostly light-hearted at what he called a “unique and fun meeting.”One shareholder suggested a U.S. government cabinet post as an information technology secretary be created for Ballmer. The outgoing CEO replied that he didn’t think the job would make sense, adding “but thank you for trying to help me find work.”Gates gave no timeline for a decision on a new CEO by the search committee. He said the new leader must have “a lot of comfort in leading a highly technical organization and have an ability to work with our top technical talent to seize the opportunities.”The company is considering internal and external candidates. Among the top internal candidates are reportedly enterprise cloud computing executive Satya Nadella, business development executive and former Skype CEO Tony Bates and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner. External candidates reportedly include former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and Ford CEO Alan Mulally, a longtime Ballmer friend.Microsoft representatives have declined to comment on the candidates being considered.The company, based in Redmond, Wash., said Tuesday that all of its proposals were approved. Board nominees, including Ballmer and Gates, were re-elected with each nominee backed by more than 90 per cent of the votes cast.The shareholders meeting, which took place in neighbouring Bellevue and was webcast, came at a time of transition for Microsoft.PC sales, the bedrock of Microsoft’s Windows operating software business, have been declining. The company has been late to growing areas like Internet search and tablet computing.Windows 8, released a year ago, attempts to bridge the divide between keyboard-and-mouse-centric personal computers and touch-based tablets. But customers griped that there were few touch-based apps and that the desktop mode removed familiar navigation tools like the Start button. A free upgrade called Windows 8.1, released last month, sought to address some of those concerns and added new features.At the shareholders meeting, Ballmer, 57, defended Microsoft’s move into hardware with its Surface line of tablets, which has been a money-loser so far, as well as its decision to purchase Nokia’s devices business for $7.2 billion. The acquisition was approved by Nokia shareholders Tuesday in Helsinki and is expected to close early next year.Ballmer said the time had passed when the company could put its software on a disc and have people install it on computers.“The notion of being able to deliver a DVD to somebody and call it a day — which is a beautiful economic model, I love it — that day won’t be there 10 years from now,” he said.He also addressed a shareholder question about the company’s “stagnant” stock price, which is down about 32 per cent from its split-adjusted close of $53.91 on Jan. 13, 2000, the day he took office.Ballmer noted that profits have tripled since he became CEO. In the fiscal year through June, earnings came to $21.86 billion, up 29 per cent from a year earlier.“If we can create new technologies that generate new profits, the share price will resultingly go up. I feel confident about that,” he said. Bill Gates chokes up at Steve Ballmer’s final Microsoft shareholders meeting by Ryan Nakashima, The Associated Press Posted Nov 19, 2013 12:00 pm MDT read more

Corrie McKeague in Bury St Edmunds on the night he went missing. Mr McKeague’s father Martin told the Daily Mirror he fears the airman might have killed himself.The 49-year-old said he thought his son knew he was going to become a father, which might have affected his mental state.He said: “I just can’t help thinking this would have weighed on him heavily and he may have actually chosen to get in that bin that night knowing what would happen. The inquiry into the disappearance of RAF gunner Corrie McKeague will be stood down and passed to a cold case team, police have confirmed, as the airman’s father said he fears he might have killed himself.Mr McKeague was 23 when he was last seen walking through Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, in September 2016 after a night out with friends.Police conducted two searches of a landfill site at Milton near Cambridge last year, with the first search lasting 20 weeks and the second, lasting seven weeks, concluding in December. No trace of Mr McKeague was found.It is thought Mr McKeague might have climbed into a waste bin and was taken away by a bin lorry, prompting the landfill search.Suffolk Constabulary said in a statement on Monday that investigators had been through all realistic possibilities in detail and that there was no evidence of foul play.

Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said: “It is extremely disappointing that we have not been able to find Corrie. I can only imagine the strain Corrie’s family have been under over the past 18 months and I thank them for their patience and understanding.”Whilst the investigation has drawn to a natural conclusion we will continue to work with the family to provide answers to their questions and help them understand what may have happened.”Since Corrie disappeared, police have been exploring all proportionate and relevant lines of enquiry.”We have now reached a point where we are unable to make any further progress, and have gone as far as we realistically can with the information we have. If any new, credible and proportionate enquiries relating to Corrie’s disappearance emerge we will pursue them.”Video: The search for Corrie McKeague Police quickly realised that the movement of his mobile phone signal matched that of the bin lorry, which had picked up the contents of a wheelie bin.The signal from the phone stopped at around the time the lorry reached the Barton Mills area about 14 miles away. The lorry was immediately impounded, but no forensic clues linking it to Mr McKeague’s disappearance were found.last_img read more

first_imgAtlantic Gold Corp reports on construction progress for its Moose River Consolidated mine (MRC mine), one of Canada’s next open pit gold mines. “Construction remains on budget and on schedule with commissioning scheduled for September 2017. Overall completion reached 70% at the end of May. MRC comprises the Touquoy and the Beaver Dam gold deposits.The Touquoy gold project is located at the former village of Moose River Gold Mines about 70 minutes’ drive via 110 km of sealed roads north-east of Halifax.The deposits are being developed as conventional surface open pit mining operations with drill/blast/load/haul activities using a leased production fleet operated by company employees. Initial production commences at Touquoy where the relatively low strip ratio and short haul to external waste dumps translates to a smaller production fleet, minimizing production costs in the process.Beaver Dam, as a satellite operation, will require minimal infrastructure to supply basic office facilities and equipment maintenance requirements. The mining fleet at Touquoy will be transitioned to Beaver Dam and expanded due to the higher rate of material movement. Ore will be crushed at a location adjacent to the Beaver Dam pit near Highway 224 and then loaded onto highway trucks which will transport it along a combination of private logging and public roads to the Touquoy processing facility.last_img read more

Image: Laura Hutton/RollingNews.ie http://jrnl.ie/3265533 Man pleads not guilty to murdering ex-partner and stabbing her brother Anna Finnegan died at her home in Clonsilla in 2012. Wednesday 1 Mar 2017, 4:14 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Alison O’Riordan A MURDER ACCUSED is alleged to have stabbed his former partner and mother of their two children after their “relationship turned sour”, prosecutors have told a trial jury.Vesel Jahiri (35), originally from Kosovo but of no fixed abode, has pleaded not guilty to murdering Anna Finnegan (25) at Allendale Glen, Clonsilla, Dublin 15 on 21 September, 2012.He has also pleaded not guilty to assaulting Karl Finnegan, causing him harm, at the same place on the same date.Opening the prosecution case to a jury this morning at the Central Criminal Court, Mr Patrick Marrinan SC told the court that in order to be convicted of murder one has to have an intent to kill or cause serious injury and this can “come into a case in an instant and disappear in an instant.”“This may be relevant to this case,” he said.Mr Marrinan said that Mr Jahiri was born in Kosovo and had lived in Ireland since 1999. He owned a garage and was a mechanic by trade.“He is an Irish citizen and was granted citizenship some years ago,” he said.SourCounsel told the jury that Mr Jahiri formed a relationship with Anna Finnegan when she was very young, in her mid to late teens. He said they were together for about ten years and had two young children.“They had a normal relationship but leading up to September 2012 the relationship turned sour and they ended up separating. Anna Finnegan had a protection order against the accused man. She had gone to Bray Refuge Centre with her two children and stayed there. In early September she had reconnected with the accused and they had some interaction,” he said.Mr Marrinan said that “effectively the relationship was over” and the accused man was “extremely concerned” about getting access to his children.“It was put in place by social services that Karl Finnegan, the brother of Anna, would stay in Allendale Glen in Clonsilla with her. She would be in his company in the evenings and arrangements were put in place where she was with her family by day,” he said.The barrister told the jury they will hear that Ms Finnegan went with her two children to The Wellman Clinic on the morning of 21 September and the accused was also in attendance.Mr Marrinan said that later that afternoon Ms Finnegan went to her friend’s house with her two children. He said the jury would hear evidence of a telephone call from the accused that afternoon.Counsel said the jury will hear that Ms Finnegan went home that evening and was sitting at the kitchen table with Karl Finnegan, having a cup of tea and a chat, when the front door was battered in.“You will see evidence of that,” he said.AttackThe barrister said the jury will hear evidence that the accused man came into the house armed with a knife and “immediately went to Karl Finnegan and attacked him.”He said that Karl Finnegan was struck twice with the knife. “Once causing a fracture to the orbit of the eye and there will be evidence that he suffered a stab wound to his chest area,” he said.Counsel told the court that Karl Finnegan felt faint and he may have gone unconscious but he was aware that Anna fled from the house and had gone outside.“He (Karl Finnegan) was also aware of the fact that the accused man had gone out after her. He (Karl Finnegan) followed them both and you will heard evidence of what happened outside. There is no one in the case who will say they saw the accused man stab Anna. You are entitled to draw inferences from known facts,” he said.The barrister said that Ms Finnegan then collapsed in the driveway and the accused man went to his motorcar.“There will be evidence from two eye witnesses who will tell you what they perceived happening, whether their evidence is accurate is entirely a matter for you and you can decide what weight you will attach to that evidence,” he said.Mr Marrinan said the jury will hear evidence that Mr Jahiri came back in his car, put Ms Finnegan into the back and drove her to James Connolly Memorial Hospital.“You will remember what I said in regards to the charge of murder. It is the prosecution’s case that it is very clear that the accused man having stabbed Anna Finnegan immediately regretted it and brought her to hospital but that doesn’t absolve him,” he said.HospitalThe court heard that hospital staff attended to Ms Finnegan. Mr Marrinan said Mr Jahiri then went off in his car and subsequently paramedics attended to Karl Finnegan at the scene.Counsel said the jury will hear evidence that Mr Jahiri rang 999 later on and spoke to an operator. “You will hear the transcript of what he had to say in that conversation,” he said.Mr Jahiri handed himself into Cabra Garda Station the following day and he was arrested, he said.“When he handed himself in he brought the knife with him and gave that knife to gardai, a knife he claimed at the time he had taken from Karl Finnegan when he was acting in self-defence. You will hear evidence of the examination of that knife and what was found on it,” he said.Mr Marrinan said that the accused man’s case “is not that he was not at the scene.”“It is in actual fact that he went to the house to give some money to Anna Finnegan and wasn’t allowed access to the house. He admits he broke down the door. He says he was confronted by Karl Finnegan who had a knife or knives. He says he managed to take a knife off Karl Finnegan and stabbed him but he only did so as Mr Finnegan had a knife and he [the accused] did so in self-defence,” the barrister said.The barrister told the court that Mr Jahiri denied that he stabbed and killed Anna Finnegan.“He said he stabbed Karl Finnegan in self-defence and during the course of this that Karl Finnegan stabbed his sister or alternatively he doesn’t know how Anna Finnegan received those fatal injuries,” hesaid.The trial continues tomorrow before Mr Justice Paul Coffey and a jury of nine men and three women. It is expected to last between four and five weeks.center_img 12,158 Views Share2 Tweet Email1 No Comments Short URL Mar 1st 2017, 4:14 PM Image: Laura Hutton/RollingNews.ielast_img read more

People watching want to see knockouts, they like to see blood, I suppose, so I am learning to be more ruthless,” added the Bray woman.The42 is on Instagram!

first_imgVIH : Médecins du monde veut étendre son dispositif de dépistage rapide France – Pour les experts, les tests sanguins de dépistage rapide du VIH (TDR) doivent être plus accessibles aux populations les plus exposées et mieux répondre aux situations d’urgence.Les TDR permettent de savoir rapidement (environ trente minutes) si l’on est infecté par le virus du sida grâce à l’analyse d’une goutte de sang prélevée sur le bout du doigt. Ces tests sont depuis des années disponibles dans les laboratoires et les centres de dépistage, mais leur utilisation doit entrer dans le cadre d’une recherche biomédicale. Pour le Conseil national du sida (CNS), les associations de lutte contre le VIH et les groupes d’experts, les TDR ne sont pas encore assez facile d’accès. Ils pourraient pourtant permettre aux populations les plus exposées, ainsi qu’aux personnes qui ne se rendent pas dans les centres de dépistage, de pouvoir faire le point rapidement sur leur état de santé. Ces tests rapides contribueraient à limiter l’épidémie de VIH dans un pays comme la France où 36.000 personnes ne savent pas qu’elles sont infectées par le VIH. En réponse à la situation d’épidémie généralisée qui touche la Guyane, Médecins du monde a décidé de proposer depuis début 2010 des TDR dans son centre de soins de Cayenne : tous les volontaires qui souhaitent se faire dépister peuvent en bénéficier, sans attendre d’autorisation formelle.  Les experts attendaient en effet l’autorisation de la Haute autorité de santé (HAS) à ce sujet. Elle avait promis la diffusion des TDR dès le printemps 2009 dans les centres de dépistage de Guyane. Pourtant, aucune initiative n’a encore été engagée.Le 8 mars 2010 à 10:58 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgThere are very few people who love actor and Broadway star Jerry Orbach as much as artist Brandon Bird. Bird has so much respect for Orbach that he’s launched a Kickstarter project to paint the late actor’s face on the side of a used sedan because nothing says respect like a used car.The crowd-sourced campaign hopes to raise at least $22,000 to create the “Jerry Orbach Memorial Art Car” or the “Orbach Car,” which Bird says will be driven aroundThere isn’t actually a significance in regards to the car. Orbach was in a Chevrolet commercial in 1977, but he’s best known for playing Detective Lennie Briscoe on Law & Order for 12 seasons. It’s actually his most famous role that serves as the inspiration for the project.Bird’s endeavor may seem to come out of nowhere–the culmination of two random thoughts that just happened to coincide–but Bird’s motivations seem to be sincere. The artist, who’s done artwork of Briscoe before, iterates how he does want to pay tribute to the actor, since watching his work helped him creatively and personally.Bird said he was in a rut, “but in Jerry Orbach’s character… I found a spark.

first_imgWarriors should sit Klay for Game 3Klay Thompson is a game-time decision for Game 3 of the Finals against Toronto tonight after going down with a hamstring injury in Game 2, and Colin thinks Steve Kerr would be smart to sit him.Without him, the Warriors still have a chance to win behind Steph Curry and and the few remaining uninjured Warriors in front of the home crowd at Oracle, and the risk of him playing and further injuring the hammy that could potentially keep him out for the rest of the series isn’t worth it. Even with a loss tonight, the Warriors would be better off heading into Game 4 in a 1-2 hole with Klay and KD returning.
