first_imgNew York: A US judge has ordered a white youth, who admitted to attacking a Sikh store owner because of his religion, to learn more about the faith and submit a report in the court as part of his sentence for committing the hate crime. Marion County Judge Lindsay Partridge also sentenced 25-year-old Andrew Ramsey to three years of imprisonment, according to a press release issued by the Sikh Coalition, the largest Sikh body in America. On January 14, Ramsey brutally assaulted Harwinder Singh Dodd, who was working at a convenience store in the US State of Oregon, because of his perception of his religion.

When Dodd asked Ramsey to leave, he attacked him by pulling his beard, punching him in the face, pulling him to the ground and kicking him. Ramsey also spat on Dodd and ripped his turban off his head, the press release said. The youth pleaded guilty in Marion County Circuit Court to second-degree intimidation, a hate crime under Oregon law.

Judge Partridge also included restorative justice components as part of Ramsey’s probation, including a requirement that he obtain an awareness of Sikhism and report what he has learned to the court,” the Sikh Coalition said. In a written statement to the court, Dodd said, “Every person should be able to live their life without fear of being targeted because of who they are, or how they practice their faith.” According to the Sikh Coalition, Sikhs in America remain hundreds of times more likely to experience bigotry, bias or backlash than the average American. “This conviction is a much-needed step for Oregon in its broader efforts to make all our communities safe from hate,” it said. As per a FBI report, hate crimes increased by over 40 per cent in Oregon in the last one year. In May 2018, Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum established a special task force designed to explore ways to improve measures to combat and prevent hate. Recently, Senate Bill 577 was introduced to strengthen the state’s laws against hate crimes. This proposed bill renames crime of intimidation as bias crime, the Sikh Coalition said.last_img read more

Toronto – Two Indian men were shot in a Kansas bar, one of them killed and a third man injured as he attempted to intervene.An eyewitness reported that, Adam Purinton, aged 51, shouted “Get out of my country” before shooting at two Indian men in a bar in Olatho, Kansas. When he was finished firing, 32-year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotia lay dead. Another Indian man, Alok Madasani, also 32 and a 24-year-old bystander, Ian Grillot, who tried to intervene, both suffered gunshots but survived.The suspect fled on foot but was apprehended five hours later, at an Applebee’s restaurant in Clinton, Missouri. According to a report in the Kansas City Star, Purinton told an employee that he had to hide out because he had just killed “two Middle Eastern men.” Police took him into custody without incident. Purinton was no longer armed. Anti-immigrant sentiment has been on the rise since US President Donald Trump’s election. Incidences of race-related violence have been on the rise across the country amid ongoing protests to his win since the day of his inauguration.Reaction from India has been swift. At first in favour of Trump’s election, thinking his anti-Muslims stance somehow made him more amenable to Hindus, the country’s fancy is turning cold. US talk of curbing the H-1B visa program has the Indian government and $150 billion tech industry very worried.Social media exploded in response to the shooting, with well-known actor, Siddarth, tweeted’ “Don’t be shocked! Be angry! Trump is spreading hate. This is a hate crime! RIP #SrinivasKuchibhotia.”A friend of Kuchibhotia spoke of his friend as an easy-going person, always ready with a smile. “This came as an incredible shock,” he said. “As he is one of the most gentle, nicest human beings you would meet. He was non-confrontational, non-controversial, easy-going and always smiling.” He has started a crowd-funding page for his friend to help with the funeral and the family. It has already raised more than $250,000.00.The US Embassy in New Delhi issued a statement saying the following; “The United States is a nation of immigrants and welcomes people from across the world to visit, work, study and live. United States authorities will investigate thoroughly and prosecute the case, though we recognize that justice is small consolation to families in grief.”The investigation into the incident as a hate crime has fallen under the purview of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Eric Jackson, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Kansas City Field Office said “We are looking at whether the crime was committed via bias motivation. We are really at the preliminary stage at looking at every aspect.”Meanwhile, shooter Adam Purinton, is being held on a $2 million bond. He has waived his right to extradition to John County Kansas, where the shootings took place. read more

Schneider said that Macroeconomic performance in 2015 reflected a mix of positive underlying growth momentum, the impact of domestic policies, and an increasingly difficult external environment. To boost trade and private sector development, the mission recommends addressing protectionism by reviewing tariffs and para-tariffs. The mission welcomes ongoing efforts to enhance competitiveness through other means, including removal of the EU fisheries import ban, and the reinstatement of Generalized System of Preferences Plus status. Further steps are needed to increase the efficiency of trade facilitation (including through full implementation of use of electronic customs documentation), remove barriers to foreign investment entry and establishment, enhance access to finance, and strengthen financial market infrastructure.The mission met with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade Malik Samarawickrame, Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka Arjuna Mahendran, other public officials, and representatives of the business community, civil society and international partners. (Colombo Gazette) The medium-term revenue effort will be based on further reform of tax and expenditure policies, supported by modernizing revenue administration and public financial management (including implementation of key IT systems (RAMIS, ITMIS, and ASYCUDA ++). The mission also welcomed the recent tightening of monetary policy given the steady increase in core inflation and high private credit growth. The IMF mission said that given the long lags in monetary transmission and continued increase in core inflation and private credit growth, however, the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) should be prepared to tighten policies further if these trends continue. The mission also recommends the CBSL take active steps to rebuild non-borrowed reserve buffers.“The financial system appears well capitalized and liquid, but the authorities should nevertheless remain vigilant to the risk of a potential rise in non-performing loans. The mission welcomes steps toward supervision on a consolidated basis and shifting to Basel III and concurs with continued efforts needed to strengthen the legal framework for crisis preparedness and resolution,” the IMF said.It said that achieving medium-term growth and reserve objectives and building greater resilience to external shocks will require a renewed effort toward greater integration into regional and global supply chains, higher levels of foreign direct investment, and enhancing prospects for private sector investment. He said the fiscal deficit expanded, public debt increased, and the balance of payments position deteriorated despite an improvement in the terms of trade.Real GDP growth in 2016 is expected to remain around 5 percent and inflation in the low single digits. Over the medium term, there is potential for growth to rise closer to Sri Lanka’s estimated potential output level, but prospects will hinge on a policy upgrade in the near term and removing bottlenecks to trade and investment. “The authorities’ proposed economic program aims to achieve high and sustained levels of inclusive economic growth, restore discipline to macroeconomic and financial policies, and rebuild fiscal and reserve buffers. Key objectives underlying the reform agenda include: (i) improving revenue administration and tax policy; (ii) strengthening public financial management; (iii) state enterprise reforms; and, iv) structural reforms to enable a more outward-looking economy, deepen foreign exchange markets, and strengthen financial sector supervision,” he said.He said that a durable reduction of the fiscal deficit and public debt through a growth-friendly emphasis on revenue generation is the main priority for fiscal policy.In this context, the mission welcomed the cabinet’s decision to reduce the 2016 fiscal deficit to 5.4 percent of GDP, and advised to move quickly on tax and expenditure policy decisions endorsed by the Cabinet. Other near-term steps include a clear strategy to define and address outstanding obligations of state enterprises, start broadening the tax base by reducing tax exemptions, and introduction of a new Inland Revenue Act. Program discussions will continue in Washington D.C. on the margins of the Spring Meetings of the IMF and World Bank, with the objective of concluding a staff-level agreement with the authorities, subject to approval by IMF Management and the Executive Board, in the next two weeks. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) says it has made significant progress toward a staff level agreement with the Sri Lankan Government on an economic program that could be supported by a 36-month Extended Fund Facility (EFF).A staff team from the IMF led by Todd Schneider visited Colombo during March 31- April 11 to hold the 2016 Article IV consultation discussions and to discuss the authorities’ request for a Fund supported arrangement. read more

SMMT attended The Future Shape of Motor Vehicle Sales and Servicing meeting held today in Brussels. Organised by the Forum for the Automobile and Society the event looked at how the motor industry has operated under the existing regulation which is due to expire in 2010 and discussed how the new proposals are likely to impact on business and the consumer. Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Although the report does not make proposals as to the future of Block Exemption, the Commission indicates that there appears to be no requirement for a motor industry sector-specific regulation and wishes to consider the accommodation of motor vehicle distribution under the general regime on vertical restraints. Following publication of the European Commission’s evaluation report on the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation, SMMT is looking forward to furthering its dialogue with the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and the Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) in order to validate the Commission’s findings. * SMMT supports EU desire to simplify regulation * Competition alive and well in motor industry * Industry in dialogue with government to validate findings “The motor industry has come a long way since Block Exemption was first adopted and we welcome the  Commission’s desire to now simplify the regulation,” said SMMT chief executive, Paul Everitt. “We look forward to engaging with government and other stakeholders in order to evaluate the report findings, with the aim of maintaining a healthy balance of the many and varied interests of the industry.” SMMT will be reviewing the report in more detail and is in dialogue with the OFT and BERR to discuss the proposals and frame the debate going forward. The current regulation has contributed to positive consumer benefits through healthy competition in all areas of the industry, and the report suggests that the same results can be achieved by using the general scheme. The sector-specific rules contain complex and unattractive options that simply are not used by businesses. The new EU Type-Approval legislation makes certain aspects, such as access to technical information for new cars, redundant. read more

first_imgIRISH MEN ARE more likely to leave school early, commit a murder, or be unemployed, a new report shows, while Irish women earn less and are unlikely to hold a seat of power.A special report from the CSO, Women and Men in Ireland 2013, has analysed areas of Irish society ranging from education to crime to see which gender dominates.It notes that Ireland is ninth in the EU27 for gender equality, slightly above the EU average with a score of 55.2.FertileThe one gender-specific factor in which Ireland stands out, the report notes, is fertility – Irish women are the most fertile in the European Union, joint first with France.Women are also still overwhelmingly more likely (98%) to be a stay-at-home parent.Just more than 80% of the Irish prison population is male, while men are also more likely to be a victim of murder of manslaughter.When it comes to holding positions of power, Ireland is more than 10% below the EU average for female representation in national parliament, with just less than 16% of TDs are female.EmploymentBoth genders experienced a dramatic fall in employment rates in 2009.For men, there has been a slight improvement with rates increasing 3.3% from a low of 62.4% in 2012, but the rate for women has increased just 0.7% in the same period.And once they are in employment, women are likely to receive about a quarter less pay, while men are likely to both work and earn more.The sectors of choice for men are construction, agriculture, and transport, and for women are health and education.Although 85% of primary-level teachers are female and 68% at second-level, men are still more likely to hold senior positions.If they can’t get work, there’s always the option of emigration, in which there is little difference between the two genders.When it comes to the Leaving Certificate, the subjects where more boys than girls sat higher level were MathematicsPhysicsConstruction studiesDesign and communication graphicsEngineeringThe subjects in which girls excelled were:EnglishFrenchIrishBiologyChemistryArtHome EconomicsMusicWomen are also generally better educated than men.“Over half (55.3%) of women aged 25-34 having a third-level qualification in 2013 compared to just 42.7% of men in this age group,” the report read, and noted that the “early school leavers’ rate among women aged 18-24 in 2012 was 8.2% which was lower than the rate of 11.2% for men”.Read: Women ‘talent bank’ to improve gender balance on state boards >More: Men “hit harder than women by unemployment during recession” >last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As the 29 November state election draws closer, a consensus seems to be forming amongst commentators based on the available opinion polls that the Liberal-National coalition government is in some trouble. The polls are indicating that voters are re-aligning their support to the Labor opposition, presumably in response to the manner in which the Liberal Party in particular conducted itself as one of the major parties of government after its rather unexpected election victory in 2010. If the theory of uniform swings holds (that is, if the polls are revealing a shift in alignments then it should be assumed this will occur across all electorates with the consequence being that those seats with the narrowest margins will be lost by the governing party) then Labor may be on track to win the election with a majority of perhaps nine seats. The problem, of course, is that theories and realities often do not match, and that, for all the bad polling and problems the party has had to deal with since coming to power in 2010, it is still very possible for the Coalition to win this election even if there was a big two-party swing to Labor.What is more, the contest is not simply one between Labor and Liberal in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne and the regional cities of Geelong and Ballarat. In inner Melbourne Labor is being challenged by the Greens, with the state seat of Melbourne looking particularly vulnerable. Despite what the polls are saying, the 2014 election is going to be a very close affair.Part of the reason for this is the comparative lack of marginal government seats in the current pendulum. Following the redistribution of electoral boundaries, the Liberal and National parties notionally hold 48 seats, of which five would be lost with uniform two-party swings to the Labor party of 1 per cent. This would give Labor the 45 seats that would give it a lower house majority provided it did not lose any inner city seats to the Greens. A swing of two per cent would result in 8 seats being transferred. Beyond that, Labor would need a two-party swing of more than two per cent, and even this would only add one or two seats to the Labor majority. Labor has its own marginal seats, of course, and any loss of these to the Liberals would make the final outcome very close indeed.This is all based on the idea of a uniform swing. If the Liberal party was able to defend some of these marginal seats and pick up a marginal Labor seat such as Cranbourne, it could still win this election even if there was a big two party swing to Labor across the state. This is by no means beyond the realm of the possible. No-one has adequately accounted for why support for Labor collapsed as it did in 2010, but one of the features of that swing was how big the anti-Labor swing was in middle- to ultra-safe Labor districts (and, indeed, in Coalition strong-holds as well). What could happen on 29 November is that these swings are cancelled out – in other words, the swing to Labor being detected in the polls occurs in very safe Labor and very safe Coalition seats but does not occur to the same extent in the marginal seats. If this happens, then the Coalition could just scrape home and the historical trend that there hasn’t been a one-term government in Victoria since the 1950s will be maintained.Finally, a word on the election for the Legislative Council. There is a lot of static occurring over the potential for minor parties to win Upper House seats. If the cumulative vote for these ‘micro’ parties is more than 16.7 per cent in any Upper House region, then one of them will get a seat. Failing that, the most likely scenario is that Upper House seats will be won by the Labor, Liberal and National parties with the Greens probably winning three seats. The real battle will be between Labor and Liberal for a seat in both Northern Metropolitan and Western Metropolitan. At the moment, the Coalition has a 1 seat majority in the Upper House. If the status quo is maintained, the Coalition will control the Upper House after 29 November. If Labor wins one seat from the Liberals, the numbers are tied. If Labor wins two seats, then the Greens will hold the balance of power. These are the two most likely outcomes, and Victorian parliamentary politics will have another four years of tense brinksmanship as a government tries to steer its legislative program through parliamentary chambers it may not necessarily control.* Dr Nick Economou is a senior lecturer in the School of Social Sciences at Monash University.

first_imgRead the letter from Cook and Lucas at www.columbian.com/documents.Citing concerns about the software’s capability and potential conflicts with state laws, Vancouver Police Chief Cliff Cook and Clark County Sheriff Garry Lucas wrote a joint letter Monday to David Madore, telling him they have “serious reservations” about being involved with his FastNav school safety program.FastNav is a Web-based navigation software system, originally developed by Vancouver police Officer Rey Reynolds, to help police officers respond to bomb threats, shootings and terrorist attacks at schools.FastNav was designed by Reynolds to be an improvement on the current state-adopted Rapid Responder system, which has many of the same features and information, but which Reynolds has said is too clunky for patrol officers to use. Madore, owner of US Digital, stepped in with $1 million to back Reynolds and two other co-founders.The plan had been to install the service for a free trial in Clark County schools, in cooperation with the school districts and public safety.And though the system has been knocked by the top two officials in public safety, Madore said it won’t be the end of the road for FastNav — if they can’t launch here, they’ll look in Oregon or as far as they have to so they can launch their product.last_img read more

first_imgPat Pourchot rafting an Alaskan river in the 1970s. (Photo: Pat Pourchot)John McPhee’s book Coming into the Country starts with a river trip: six men, nine days- floating nearly the entire length of the Salmon river in Northwest Alaska. The 26 year old leading the trip was Pat Pourchot, a recent Alaska transplant who had the job of a lifetime with the Interior Department.Listen nowAs Pourchot tells it, fresh out of college, he lucked into one of the best jobs in the world. In 1972, he was working for the now long gone federal Bureau of Outdoor Recreation in Colorado. His boss needed five people willing to relocate to Alaska. The job? Floating and researching rivers across the state to see if they would qualify for wild and scenic status in the national park system.“I had wanted to go to Alaska since I was a little kid and I couldn’t raise my hand fast enough and got off the plane here in the spring of 1972 and basically never left,” Pourchot said.The Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act had passed the year before as part of the effort in Congress to make way for the Trans Alaska Pipeline. Besides establishing 12 Alaska Native Regional Corporations, the law called for studying wilderness areas in the state for national designation as refuges and parks.That’s where Pourchot came in. He had almost no experience in a kayak or canoe. But he was part of the team charged with “inspecting” more than two dozen remote rivers across the state.“And we were looking for…I think the words were ‘remarkably outstanding values’,” Pourchot said.By 1975, when John McPhee showed up in Alaska, Pourchot was a skilled paddler, with three summers of river running experience behind him. McPhee had a good friend, John Kauffman, who was a colleague of Pourchot’s at the Interior Department and he convinced the writer to come to Alaska for a story. Pourchot had never heard of the New Yorker magazine and didn’t have any idea who John McPhee was.But on the trip, McPhee quickly gained Pourchot’s respect. Pourchot said he asked intricate questions about the landscape and animals and probed the men for their opinions on wilderness and conservation.Pourchot said McPhee was continually, but not furiously, taking notes on their answers, “especially in the evening around the campfire he’d be taking notes, lunch breaks he’d be taking notes.”When The New Yorker article was published in May 1977, Pourchot marveled at the way McPhee unraveled the story of their nine day adventure. The trip started near the headwaters of the Salmon, where the river was barely more than a foot deep.McPhee wrote, “I was not disappointed the Salmon was low. In a lifetime of descending rivers, this was the clearest and the wildest river. Walking it in places made it come slow, and that was a dividend in itself.”In one especially vivid section, McPhee described an epic battle between Pourchot and a giant chum salmon. Pourchot said reading the story now brings him back to that day on the river, “I think John McPhee’s accuracy is impeccable. I think he just really captures things so entertainingly and accurately.”When Coming into the Country was published in December, 1977, it quickly became a bestseller. Pourchot said McPhee’s book doesn’t explicitly make the case for conservation. But it brought the remote wilds of Alaska into focus for readers.John McPhee with chum salmon on the Salmon River in Alaska. (Photo: Pat Pourchot, U.S. Dept. of Interior)“What it did was raise a nation’s consciousness about Alaska and the stakes,” Pourchot said. “And what should the role of conservation be on our public lands in Alaska. I think that’s where undoubtedly it had an effect.”In 1980, the Salmon River was included in the national wild and scenic river system, along with two dozen other rivers Pourchot’s team floated.After his brush with McPhee, Pourchot worked as a congressional staffer, state lawmaker and Department of Natural Resources Commissioner, to name a few of his many public service jobs.He’s now retired, but he hasn’t stopped exploring. Pourchot says he leads a small group of “aging buddies” on river trips in Alaska every summer.“It’s been kind of a pleasant surprise that most of the places I’ve revisited are largely the same,” Pourchot said. “You can go out to Gates of the Arctic or Beaver Creek in Yukon flats Wildlife Refuge and have an experience that’s very similar to the experience we had in the 70s.”And when he’s off the river he still hears from people who’ve just read Coming into the Country and want to know if he’s the same Pat Pourchot who led John McPhee on the Salmon more than 40 years ago.last_img read more

It’s miles above Cardboard, according to the tip. If the leak is accurate, you’d see it arrive sometime this year… alongside software that could be just as (if not more) important to the experience.The same insiders claim that Google is baking VR into Android itself, rather than relying on third-party apps like Cardboard does today. This wouldn’t just make support easier, but would fight common VR problems like lag — the smaller the delay, the less likely you are to be nauseous after a prolonged session.Google hasn’t confirmed either the Android VR support or the hardware, but it wouldn’t be shocking to get at least a sneak peek at this technology at Google I/O in May.

first_imgAssociated PressST. GEORGE’S, Grenada (AP) – A haunting Cold War mystery is getting a fresh look on the Caribbean island of Grenada, where officials are trying to locate the missing remains of a Marxist prime minister executed nearly 30 years ago during a coup that sparked a U.S. invasion.Maurice Bishop was machine-gunned by a firing squad on Oct. 19, 1983, along with three members of his Cabinet and four others during the bloody upheaval, and no one seems to know where the bodies ended up. Rumors have swirled for decades that U.S. forces later hid the remains to prevent the grave from becoming a rallying point for the slain leader’s supporters or that a political rival dynamited the bodies. Grenada’s government wants the mystery solved as a way of healing the national psyche of this now-tranquil country of nutmeg-scented forests known as “the spice island,” which became a flashpoint in the last days of the Cold War. Forensic anthropologists recently failed to find the remains in a hillside cemetery in the capital of St. George’s, but further searches are planned.“It’s important for all concerned to bring some closure to this chapter in Grenada’s history,” Finance Minister Nazim Burke said in his office, just down a winding road from the 17th century fort where the 39-year-old Bishop and the others, including his pregnant mistress, were executed by Grenadian soldiers following a coup by a radical faction of Bishop’s Cuba-backed party.This much is known about the remains: After the execution, one gunman slit Bishop’s throat after he was dead and cut off a finger to steal a ring. The bodies were transported to a military camp six miles outside of town and partially burned in a pit.Six days after Bishop’s execution, about 7,000 U.S. Marines and paratroopers, along with a few hundred security forces from neighboring islands, invaded Grenada, toppling the post-coup military government.

However, others say imperfect evidence suggests that Coard, who is widely reviled in Grenada and settled in Jamaica after being released from prison in 2009, had the remains dynamited before he was captured by U.S. forces. Finding the truth is complicated by the fact that the matter was not investigated with any sort of thorough collection of evidence in the chaotic, tense days before and after the U.S. invasion.In 1983, a power struggle between Bishop, a relatively popular prime minister who took power in a 1979 coup, and a more radical faction led by Coard devolved into the bloody coup.The U.S., already alarmed by Bishop’s Soviet and Cuban ties, said the invasion was necessary to protect the lives of hundreds of American medical students at St. George’s University Medical School and to keep the island from being used as a staging post for communist aggression in the region. U.S. forces quickly gained control after the invasion was launched. But the action killed 45 Grenadians, 29 Cubans and 19 Americans.Jorge Heine, a Chilean who is a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, a non-partisan Canadian think tank based in Waterloo, Ontario, said a monument to the memory of Bishop and his associates “would be a fitting way to finally bring about reconciliation to the spice island.”“The country needs to come to terms with its past,” said Heine, who edited a book of essays about Grenada’s revolutionary days. Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Witnesses say the burned, decomposing remains were transported to the island’s medical school and the body bags were later brought to funeral director Leslie Bailey, who was tasked by the U.S. military with burying casualties from the conflict. Bailey died without ever pinpointing where the body bags believed to contain the remains of the political leaders were buried.Bailey’s son, funeral director Clinton Bailey, said he wants to find the remains because people “still point fingers” at his family every time the island celebrates the anniversary of the U.S. invasion, which was almost universally welcomed by Grenadians and is observed each Oct. 25 as a holiday known as Thanksgiving.“I will clear my father’s name,” said Clinton Bailey, who has carried out his own unsuccessful efforts to find Bishop’s remains.Experts suspect the remains of Bishop and the others lie in unmarked graves in St. George’s sprawling cemetery, where his supporters erected a rough, unmarked bust of the slain revolutionary leader among a tangle of white mausoleums and gravestones,An international forensic team led by Marcella Sorg of the University of Maine was brought in by Grenada’s Conference of Churches, the government and the island’s medical school to find the remains. More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Sponsored Stories center_img Top Stories Not all Grenadians believe officials should spend time trying to find Bishop’s remains.“Some people like to make believe that the revolution days were like getting presents beneath a Christmas tree. But it’s not true. I think Bishop did some good things in his time, but we had no freedom of speech in those days. It’s time to look forward as a country,” said Ezekiel “Eze” Jones, a tour guide operator and taxi driver.But Ann Bishop, the sister of the slain leader, said she has prayed for decades that her brother’s body would be found and her family could have a proper burial at last.“I am still hopeful Maurice’s body will be located,” she said by phone from her home in Grenada. “We’re still trying to get over this, after all these years.”___David McFadden on Twitter: http://twitter.com/dmcfadd Comments   Share   Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) The team spent almost two weeks in May excavating a roughly 25-foot stretch of the cemetery, first using a backhoe and then switching to small hand trowels. They scraped at the soil as bones began to emerge from an unmarked grave yards from where a gravedigger discovered three U.S. military body bags a decade ago.Forensic experts say the scattered bones found are apparently not those of Bishop or the others, according to the Rev. Sean Doggett, a Roman Catholic priest who acts as spokesman for the Conference of Churches. But Doggett said he is hopeful that future digs could provide answers.“They might be just outside the area searched,” Doggett said in an email from his native Ireland, where is vacationing.He did not say when the next search will take place, but officials say they will proceed once more money is available.Previous searches in the same cemetery, including a forensic excavation organized by Bishop’s daughter Nadia, failed as well.At the cemetery, burly gravedigger Michael MacIntosh said he’s confident a sustained search of the area will eventually turn up the long-sought remains.“After all, the bodies have to be somewhere,” said MacIntosh, standing by the excavated area, in the shadow of the National Stadium. “They couldn’t have just disappeared into the air.” 4 sleep positions for men and what they meanlast_img read more

The sternum and waist straps help spread the weight through your entire torso, helping relieve some of the stress on your shoulders and neck. Look for models that allow you to tuck these away somewhere when not needed, such as when you’re using it as a daypack.Back padding will keep your camera and laptop from jabbing you in the back as you queue up for passport control. If you’re buying online, measure your torso from the top of your back to your lower back to try to get the right fit – and buy from a retailer that allows returns so you can return it if it’s uncomfortable when you try it at home.Ensure there are two zips on every compartment so that if you’re forced to check your bag, then at least you can lock all the zips for security. Plus, when you’re out and about in crowded cities, you can lock the compartments to prevent pickpocketing.Large external pockets will make your trip through airport security easier. Just shove your bag of liquids, tablet, keys and phone in one of those.Water resistance is vital. At some point, you’ll be caught in a downpour, and you don’t want everything inside soaked. Look for thick, durable material, such as extra-strong nylon, and seams sewn with thick threads.The wheels dilemma – some backpacks come with wheels and handle, which makes carrying your bag a lot easier on smooth ground, such as in airports. However, these add weight, and although the wheels are typically covered when not in use, they can poke into your back. So think carefully before buying one of these.Handles on the top or side will make it a lot easier to heft your bag into the overhead compartment.

Added Ohio Gov.The book is published by Westland Books *** Apparently right from the time she had decided to enter electoral politics Sonia Gandhi was keen to contest only from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh the seat of her late husband Rajiv Gandhi Yet she ended up in Bellary because sundry arguments were trotted out by the Congress: the BJP would go to any lengths to make sure that she didn’t enter parliament even to the extent of putting up an ailing dummy candidate whose death would lead to the election being countermanded; the sitting BJP MP from Amethi Sanjay Singh would resort to large-scale violence to get the polls countermanded; and finally if she stood from just one constituency the BJP would try to pin her down to that seat Sonia obviously bought into these arguments and gave the go-ahead to a hare-brained plan to throw the Opposition off its track The evening before the last date for filing nominations Sonia took off for Hyderabad in a commercial flight accompanied by her secretary Vincent George party General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad and her security personnel Azad made it a point to deliberately mislead the media into believing that Sonia was headed for Kadapa in Andhra Pradesh When asked about Sonia’s eventual destination he retorted: ‘If we were going to Bellary why would we be in Andhra Pradesh’ As part of this elaborate charade a small seven-seater aircraft and a helicopter were parked at Hyderabad airport The flight plan given to the crew was that Sonia would take the chopper to Kadapa and Azad would fly to Bellary Finally the lady accompanied by her entourage drove to the airport and took off for Bellary presumably smug in the belief that the BJP had been fooled Not quite The BJP came up with a stunning counter and I would eventually ferret out the interesting details of what followed Several workers of the Congress party were well aware of the smokescreen that the high command was creating in its attempt to mislead the Opposition about Sonia’s eventual destination Besides Bellary and Kadapa the Congress was also putting out rumours that Madam Gandhi may eventually contest from Medak in Andhra Pradesh which was held by her mother-in-law at the time of her assassination in October 1984 The BJP was first tipped off about this so-called ‘grand plan’ on the morning of 17 August 1999 just a day before the final date for filing nominations The civil aviation authorities had informed the ruling party that Sonia was booked for Hyderabad from where she could proceed either to Kadapa or to Bellary in Karnataka By noon the BJP had learnt that the then Andhra Pradesh Congress chief the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy had proceeded to his constituency Kadapa instead of waiting on Sonia as was the protocol By evening the BJP was alerted that the Special Protection Group (SPG) was making security arrangements in Bellary Meanwhile BJP General Secretary Venkaiah Naidu (now Vice President of India) was in Bengaluru working out details of seat distribution with the newly-constituted Janata Dal (U) even as news of Sonia Gandhi’s movements began to filter in He immediately got into action and choreographed a game plan to counter the Congress president He first telephoned the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh N Chandrababu Naidu in Hyderabad The two discussed the possibility of propping up a candidate who could give a fight to Sonia in Kadapa Should it be a strong local leader or an outsider Why not a film star suggested Chandrababu who had piggybacked to political prominence as the son-in-law of the charismatic cinema idol NT Rama Rao Over the next few hours there were four telephone conversations between the two Naidus The chief minister suggested the names of two popular actresses—Jayapradha then a TDP Rajya Sabha member and Vijayashanti described as the ‘female Amitabh Bachchan’ of Telugu cinema who had joined the BJP the year before Eventually both felt that Vijayashanti who had great mass appeal would be a perfect choice for a backward rural constituency like Kadapa The question now was to get the lady’s consent It was well past midnight and Vijayashanti was in Chennai Venkaiah Naidu then got in touch with his contacts in the film industry At the unearthly hour of 130 am Vijayashanti had two visitors—film director Chitty Babu who was a member of the BJP and Devi Vara Prasad the well-known producer of several films starring the late NTR and superstar Chiranjeevi (now member of the Congress party) Even as both men were trying to persuade Vijayashanti into agreeing to the plan Venkaiah Naidu reached out to Home Minister LK Advani who was then campaigning in Karaikudi in Tamil Nadu Finally it took a woman to convince another—Vijayashanti consented after Advani’s daughter Pratibha spoke to her at 2 am That done the next step was to ensure that Vijayashanti reached Kadapa before the 3 pm deadline for filing nominations One chopper was kept ready for her at Tirupati while the then Civil Aviation Minister (now Minister for Parliamentary Affairs) Ananth Kumar made sure that another helicopter was on standby at Chennai Meanwhile a parallel operation was also being put in place The same night the BJP leadership received an Intelligence tip-off that security in Bellary was being tightened Things began to suddenly hot up in Bengaluru where Commerce Minister Ramakrishna Hegde was hammering out last minute details of the seat adjustments with Venkaiah Naidu When asked about a possible candidate to prop up against Sonia Gandhi in Bellary Hegde suggested Sushma Swaraj’s name But there was a problem—Sushma had publicly announced that she wouldn’t be contesting the forthcoming polls Who now would persuade her to change her mind Ramakrishna Hegde took the lead in this endeavour and rang Sushma Swaraj around midnight; Venkaiah also followed it up by calling her immediately thereafter After some debate over the issue Sushma Swaraj agreed to pick up the gauntlet if the BJP leadership decreed Venkaiah Naidu now moved with great alacrity At 130 am he called BJP President Kushabhau Thakre A sleepy Thakre liked the idea in principle but advised Venkaiah to get it ratified from both LK Advani and Atal Bihari Vajpayee Naidu contacted Advani yet again in Tamil Nadu Excellent idea said the Home minister but clear it with the Prime Minister as well Reluctant to wake up Vajpayee at that hour Venkaiah Naidu meanwhile utilised the time to tie up every loose end He worked through the night to make all the travel arrangements and got the paper work in order for Swaraj to file her nomination Finally Sushma Swaraj was booked on an early morning commercial flight from Delhi to Bengaluru A helicopter was procured and parked discreetly at the Jakkur airfield in north Bengaluru At 630 am Venkaiah Naidu finally mustered up the courage to call the prime minister who gave his consent after ascertaining that Sushma was ready to meet the challenge Soon thereafter Sushma Swaraj dressed traditionally as a married Hindu woman complete with a bright red bindi sindoor in the parting of her hair colourful bangles adorning her wrists and a mangalsutra around her neck embarked on one of the most high-profile electoral battles of her political life She landed in Bellary wearing BJP colours (a green blouse and a bright orange sari) and in one of her first statements proclaimed that she represented the swadeshi brand against the ‘videshi’ Sonia It became the battle royal of 1999: the BJP’s ‘behenji’ versus the Gandhi ‘bahuji’ ‘It is a battle for Indian self-respect’ Sushma declared Quick with words she picked up a few Kannada phrases and used them to full effect The BJP believed they wouldn’t lose even if Sonia technically won the election The BJP had won this round and the Congress president was in a sense ambushed in Bellary As a counter the Congress hurriedly announced the next day that Sonia would also contest from Amethi The early announcement this time around was aimed at pre-empting the suggestion that she would stand from Amethi (where nominations closed on 14 September) only if the trend in Bellary was unfavourable In the end despite the constant manoeuvering and war room-like strategies it was Sonia Gandhi who won the Bellary seat by a margin of 56000 votes although it was clearly a low margin given the seat’s electoral history There was also no doubt in anyone’s mind that Sushma Swaraj had made her mark as a great campaigner and smart politician When Hegde and Venkaiah Naidu had first suggested the idea to her she had come up with a clever response: ‘It would be like fighting the Kargil war I’ll either be a glorious martyr or a triumphant victor’ But the sugar used to sweeten the bitter juice can add up
