Dont come to school tomorrow Caledonia student posts picture with airsoft

A social media post intended as “a joke” caused alarm and concern for staff and students at a Caledonia high school last week. On March 20, officers from the Haldimand County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to a weapons complaint after several people reported seeing a picture of a female holding what appeared to be a gun, with the comment “don’t come to school tomorrow.” The girl was identified by staff members at McKinnon Park Secondary School and investigators discovered another female student was also involved.The students were spoken to by police and their parents were notified.Both students said they had posted the image as a joke and realized that it had gone too far. The alleged gun used in the photo was actually an airsoft pistol. Police say the matter is being dealt with by school officials. Haldimand County OPP Constable Rod LeClair is reminding the public to think before you post. “People need to really think of the consequences before they post comments and images on social media. These students may have intended the social media post to be a joke, but there is simply no joke about this,” said LeClair. read more

UN refugee agency concerned over missing aid workers in Liberia

“Once again, we are painfully reminded of the dangers aid workers face daily in their efforts to help uprooted people in West Africa,” the Deputy UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Mary Ann Wyrsch, said in a statement issued yesterday.The three aid workers were reported missing while on their way to visit a Norwegian-funded project by one of UNHCR’s partner agencies in the region, the Adventist Relief and Development Agency (ADRA). ADRA said its director for Liberia, Emmanuel Sharpolu, Kaare Lund of ADRA Norway and driver Musa Kita were caught in the fighting in Toes Town, close to the Liberia-Côte d’Ivoire border.UNHCR said it is doing all it can to help locate the three men and remained extremely concerned about the general situation in Liberia’s volatile border region, where aid workers are struggling to help tens of thousands of people who have fled fighting in neighbouring Côte d’Ivoire. read more

First gold pour at El LimonGuajes mine in Mexico

first_imgTorex Gold Resources has made its first gold pour of an estimated 350 oz, and a similar amount of silver, in doré, from its 100% owned El Limon-Guajes mine (ELG) in southwest Mexico. The entire processing circuit, from crushing through to dry stack tailings disposal, is now operational and has been used in the production of these first ounces.Fred Stanford, President & CEO of Torex: “This is an exciting milestone and we want to thank the thousands of construction, mining, processing, support, and service personnel, and their leaders, that have efficiently and effectively turned intentions into reality. For the uninitiated, it can be difficult to envision the number and size of the hurdles that they must clear in order to build a mine, plant, and infrastructure of this scale and complexity. Their accomplishments tend to be ‘unsung’ and we would like to take this moment to acknowledge their impressive achievement in getting this project built on time and on budget.”Mining from the Guajes pit is ahead of schedule and the mine plan has been adjusted to allow for the drawdown of the ore stockpile through 2016. In the processing plant, the ramp-up has started with the utilisation of six of 11 leach tanks and five of seven of the tailings filters. As production volumes increase, additional leach and filtration capacity will be used. Construction of the remaining tanks and filters are completed and commissioning is underway.Full production is expected to be achieved ahead of the original schedule of Q1/17.Ore from El Limon pit is necessary to achieve full production and with the successful resettlement of La Fundicion village, the focus has shifted to road building and pre-stripping on El Limon ridge. Both of these activities are progressing smoothly. Construction of El Limon crusher continues to advance ahead of schedule and assembly of the RopeCon (shown in the picture) is effectively complete and will be commissioned after the completion of El Limon crusher, which provides the feed to the RopeCon. The commissioning of both the crusher and RopeCon is anticipated for Q2/16.Construction continues on non-process related infrastructure, i.e. the truck maintenance shop, the second village, some rainy season water control structures, etc. Updates on continuing ancillary construction progress will be provided as specific construction activities conclude.Due to the many unknowns during the start-up of a new processing plant, it is challenging for the company to provide estimates of quarterly production through the ramp up period. Therefore, Torex will provide quarterly updates on the production ramp up progress that has been accomplished and will refrain from forward looking quarterly guidance during 2016.Torex is a growth-oriented, Canadian-based resource company engaged in the exploration and development of its 100% owned Morelos Gold Property, an area of 29,000 ha in the highly prospectivelast_img read more

Abu Hamza appears in US court with prosthetics removed

first_imgAN EXTREMIST EGYPTIAN-born preacher entered a U.S. courtroom yesterday for the first time to face multiple terrorism charges, complaining that his prosthetic hooks, medication and special shoes were taken away from him.The preacher was one of five terror defendants rounded up in Britain and extradited overnight to the U.S.Abu Hamza al-Masri was surrounded by several marshals in a Manhattan courtroom as he faced charges that he conspired with Seattle men to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon and helped abduct 16 hostages, two of them American tourists, in Yemen in 1998.The 54-year-old, white-haired Al-Masri exposed both of his arms through his short-sleeved prison shirt. His court-appointed lawyer, Sabrina Shroff, asked that al-Masri, indicted under the name Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, have his prosthetics immediately returned “so he can use his arms.”In the 1990s, al-Masri turned London’s Finsbury Park Mosque into a training ground for extremist Islamists, attracting men including 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui and “shoe bomber” Richard Reid.Al-Masri — jailed since 2004 in Britain on separate charges — was flown overnight to New York from London along with four others accused of U.S. embassy bombings in Africa and with helping terror operations in Afghanistan and Chechnya. The men, who could all face life in prison, have been battling extradition for between eight to 14 years.U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara called the extraditions “a watershed moment in our nation’s efforts to eradicate terrorism.” As is charged, these are men who were at the nerve centers of al-Qaida’s acts of terror, and they caused blood to be shed, lives to be lost, and families to be shattered.In New York’s federal court, Khaled al-Fawwaz and Adel Abdul Bary entered not guilty pleas to charges that they participated in the bombings of embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. The attacks killed 224 people, including 12 Americans. They were indicted in a case that also charged Osama bin Laden.In New Haven, Connecticut, Syed Talha Ahsan, 33, and Babar Ahmad, 38, entered not guilty pleas to charges that they provided terrorists in Afghanistan and Chechnya with cash, recruits and equipment.Al-Masri, a one-time nightclub bouncer, entered no plea, saying only “I do” when he was asked by U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank Maas whether he swears that his financial affidavit used to determine if he qualifies for a court-appointed lawyer was correct.Shroff told Maas that al-Masri needed use of his arms. “Otherwise, he will not be able to function in a civilized manner.”She also asked for a dictating machine, saying he can’t take notes, the return of his diabetes medication and special shoes that prevent him from slipping. She said he will need a special diet and a full medical evaluation in prison.Al-Masri peered through glasses as he consulted with Shroff and another court-appointed lawyer, Jerrod Thompson-Hicks, in a proceeding that lasted less than 15 minutes.Al-Masri has one eye and claims to have lost his hands fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan. His lawyers in England said he suffers from depression, chronic sleep deprivation, diabetes and other ailments.“I don’t think he slept at all” on the overnight flight and hadn’t eaten since arriving in New York at 2.40 am, Shroff said outside court. Still, she added, “He seemed very much like a gentleman”.Shroff and Thompson-Hicks also represented al-Fawwaz, 50, a citizen of Saudi Arabia. Thompson-Hicks said he was concerned whether his client would be properly treated for hypertension and high blood pressure. Attorney Andrew Patel, representing Bary, 52, an Egyptian citizen, said his client needed asthma medicine and treatment for other medical issues.Patel, who declined to comment afterward, told Maas that Bary reserved the right to request bail in the future.Four others who were tried in 2001 in the August 1998 bombings in Kenya and Tanzania are serving life sentences.Ahsan, 33, and Ahmad, 38, were kept detained while they await trial in Connecticut, where an Internet service provider was allegedly used to host a website. Their lawyers declined to comment.Ahmad made efforts to secure GPS devices, Kevlar helmets, night vision goggles, ballistic vests and camouflage uniforms, prosecutors said.Al-Masri is not the first Egyptian-born preacher to be brought to Manhattan for trial. A blind sheik, Omar Abdel-Rahman, is serving a life sentence after he was convicted in 1995 in a plot to assassinate then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and in another to blow up New York landmarks, including the United Nations and two tunnels and a bridge linking New Jersey to Manhattan. Abdel-Rahman has numerous health issues, including heart trouble.The overnight trip to the United States came after a multiyear extradition fight that ended Friday, when Britain’s High Court ruled that the men had no more grounds for appeal and could be sent to the U.S. immediately.“I’m absolutely delighted that Abu Hamza is now out of this country,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said. “Like the rest of the public, I’m sick to the back teeth of people who come here, threaten our country, who stay at vast expense to the taxpayer and we can’t get rid of them.”“I’m delighted on this occasion we’ve managed to send this person off to a country where he will face justice,” he added.Al-Masri has been in a British jail since 2004 on charges of inciting racial hatred and encouraging followers to kill non-Muslims.While al-Masri has been portrayed in the British media as one of the most dangerous men in the country, the case against Ahmad in Connecticut has raised concerns among legal experts and human rights advocates.Some lawyers and lawmakers have expressed concerns because Britain agreed to extradite the London computer expert even though his alleged crimes were committed in Britain; British courts declined to prosecute him for lack of evidence. Ahmad and Ahsan are accused of running websites to support Afghanistan’s ousted Taliban regime, Chechen rebels and associated terrorist groups.BBC apologises after revealing Queen’s opinion on  extremist>last_img read more

HP starts accepting TouchPad apps announces inapp purchases

first_imgBack in March HP opened its webOS 3.0 Developer Beta program in order to allow developers early access to the company’s tablet platform. In particular, HP wanted apps ready to accompany the launch of the TouchPad due out this Summer.Jump forward to today, and HP has announced it will now start accepting webOS apps for review and inclusion on the TouchPad app store. Developers can mark their apps as TouchPad compatible from within their account and then hope they get accepted as part of the HP webOS App Catalog.AdChoices广告Although developers may be eager to tick the box and get on the tablet, they may need to do some more work first. That’s because HP has also announced in-app purchases for webOS 3.0. That means developers can offer premium content access through a purchase made within an app rather than relying on a visit to the app store.HP is allowing a couple of weeks before they start reviewing apps with in-app purchase options available, which should allow ample time for developers to test the new feature.So far it looks as though HP is treating developers well and will have a good number of webOS 3.0 apps to offer for the launch of the TouchPad. But it’s not relying just on those new apps. HP is also going to support older webOS apps that used the Mojo SDK by allowing them to run in “Mojo compatibility mode” on the device.Mojo apps will run at their original resolution in a window alongside an on-screen keyboard and gesture area. The same is true of PDK apps which also have their own compatibility mode minus the keyboard and gestures.The HP TouchPad was spotted at Computex this week being used by SanDisk for demonstrations. The fact the tablet looks complete makes us hopeful it’s going to get an early, rather than late Summer launch.More at the HP webOS Developer Bloglast_img read more

Mokbel case on bent search warrants continues

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Current Australian Federal Police commander and for boss of the Purana taskforce Gavan Ryan told the Supreme Court that he sometimes swore on affidavits in the presence of an officer to be used to obtain search warrants. Whilst giving evidence earlier this week in accused drug lord Tony Mokbel’s change of plea case, Ryan said he would have sworn one in every five affidavits on his own. He said he did this in order to get the job done and not to deceive the course of justice. He said that he did not believe it was common practice to not swear on affidavits, even though the court had been told otherwise during this case. The application hearing will continue on Thursday.last_img read more

Ahmed Patel fined over plea to produce CD of MLAs statements

first_imgAhmedabad: The Gujarat High Court imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on Congress leader Ahmed Patel on Tuesday after his lawyer sought to allow a witness to produce a CD of the party MLAs’ statements made ahead of the 2017 Rajya Sabha election. Imposing the fine, Justice Bela Trivedi said the court had earlier rejected the application of his lawyer and making the same request was “misuse of the process of law at the instance of respondent No 1 (Patel)”. Patel’s lawyer P S Champaneri moved the plea on Monday, seeking to allow witness Baldevji Thakor to produce a CD containing recordings of the legislators while they were staying at a resort in Bengaluru before the Rajya Sabha polls in 2017.

Israels Netanyahu wins reelection

first_imgIsraeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is greeted by supporters of his Likud party as he arrives to speak following the announcement of exit polls in Israel`s parliamentary election at the party headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel on 10 April 2019. Photo: ReutersIsraeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu secured a clear path to re-election on Wednesday, with religious-rightist parties set to hand him a parliamentary majority and his main challenger conceding defeat.With more than 99 per cent of votes counted – ballots cast by soldiers at military bases will be tallied over the next two days – Netanyahu’s conservative Likud party looked likely to muster enough support to control 65 of the Knesset’s 120 seats and be named to head the next coalition government.It would be Netanyahu’s record fifth term as premier.In a televised statement, Yair Lapid, number two in the centrist Blue and White party led by former general Benny Gantz, said: “We didn’t win in this round. We will make Likud’s life hell in the opposition.”US president Donald Trump, who Netanyahu featured on campaign billboards to highlight their close relationship, phoned to congratulate him on his re-election, the Israeli leader said, adding that he thanked his American ally for “tremendous support for Israel”.Netanyahu tweeted that Trump had called him from Air Force One. The president was on a flight to Texas.Trump told reporters at the White House that Netanyahu’s re-election improved the chances of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. “He’s been a great ally and he’s a friend. I’d like to congratulate him on a well-thought-out race.”A team led by Trump’s adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner has been working on an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, but it has not disclosed details. Palestinians, angered by what they see as Trump’s pro-Israel bias, have called it a non-starter.Israeli president Reuven Rivlin said on Twitter he would begin meeting next week with political parties that won parliamentary seats to hear who they support for prime minister.At the sessions, which Rivlin said would be broadcast live “to ensure transparency”, he will then pick a party leader to try to form a coalition, giving the candidate 28 days to do so, with a two-week extension if needed.The close and often vitriolic contest was widely seen in Israel as a referendum on Netanyahu’s character and record in the face of corruption allegations. He faces possible indictment in three graft cases, and has denied wrongdoing in all of them.Despite that, Netanyahu gained four seats compared to his outgoing coalition government, according to a spreadsheet published by the Central Elections Committee of parties that garnered enough votes to enter the next parliament.”It is a night of colossal victory,” the 69-year-old Netanyahu told cheering supporters in a late-night speech at Likud headquarters in Tel Aviv after Tuesday’s vote.”He’s a magician!” the crowd chanted as fireworks flared and Netanyahu kissed his wife Sara. Earlier that night, Gantz had claimed victory.Tel Aviv Stock Exchange main indexes were up nearly 1 per cent in late trading on Wednesday, displaying confidence in a veteran prime minister who has overseen a humming economy and blunted various security threats, including from Syria.Netanyahu was now poised to become, in July, the longest-serving Israeli prime minister, overtaking the country’s founding father, David Ben-Gurion. That could be scuppered if criminal charges are filed and force his removal.Immunity?An indictment decision would follow a review hearing where Netanyahu can be expected to argue he should be spared in the national interest. Some analysts predict he may try to pass a law granting himself immunity, as a sitting leader, from trial.During the campaign, the rival parties accused each other of corruption, fostering bigotry and being soft on security.Israel’s 21 per cent Arab minority saw its parties lose seats. Voters blamed divisions between Arab factions which had united in the previous election, disillusionment, and a voting boycott campaign rooted in dismay at the 2018 “nation-state” law declaring that only Jews have the right of self-determination in Israel.In Taybeh, an Arab town, Hadash party official Hosam Azem, 52, said: “Arabs who don’t vote, most of them don’t do it for ideological reasons – just because they don’t think their vote will have an impact,” he said.During the campaign, Netanyahu sought to tap into Trump’s popularity among Israelis, who delighted in his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017 and transfer of the US Embassy to the holy city last May from Tel Aviv.Two weeks before the election, Trump signed a proclamation, with Netanyahu at his side at the White House, recognising Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.In a rare turn during the race towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Netanyahu further alarmed Palestinians by pledging to annex Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank if re-elected. Palestinians seek a state there and in the Gaza Strip, with East Jerusalem as its capital.This pre-election promise from Netanyahu was widely seen as an attempt to draw right-wing votes rather than a change of policy. But with Trump’s moves on Jerusalem and the Golan, the prime minister may feel emboldened to advocate annexation.Commenting on the election, Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said: “Israelis have voted to preserve the status quo. They have said no to peace and yes to the occupation”.The last round of US-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians collapsed in 2014.Trump is expected to release his administration’s Middle East peace plan after the election. If it includes Israeli concessions to the Palestinians, Netanyahu’s probable far-right coalition allies will probably object.last_img

The statement explains why it is the most useful imaging modality and provides guidance as to when it should be considered for optimal patient care.The Position Paper states that, in view of its high diagnostic accuracy, strong prognostic power, low radiation dose and consistent high-quality images, myocardial perfusion PET should be considered the preferred, first-line test for all patients who meet the appropriate criteria for a stress imaging test, are unable to complete a diagnostic-level of exercise and require pharmacologic stress. Myocardial perfusion PET is also the recommended test when previous stress imaging is equivocal, of poor quality or inconclusive; in high-risk patients in whom diagnostic errors carry even greater clinical implications; in patients with certain body characteristics that commonly affect image quality; and in younger patients to minimize accumulated life-time radiation exposure.Bracco Diagnostics manufactures the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved generator-based PET perfusion agent for the evaluation of patients with suspected or existing coronary artery disease.Read the full statement here FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more News | PET Imaging | September 01, 2016 ASNC, SNMMI Support Myocardial Perfusion PET in Coronary Artery Disease Diagnosis, Management Joint position statement provides guidance on when imaging technique should be considered for optimal patient care Technology | Information Technology | June 20, 2019 DOSIsoft Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Planet Onco Dose Software DOSIsoft announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Planet… read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions’ Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.

HUD confirmed that Golding’s new title will be principal deputy assistant secretary and that he will assume that post on April 7.”Ed Golding is fantastic and I am excited  he is taking over from me,” Gebre said via Twitter on Thursday.Gebre had been serving as the acting commissioner of FHA since October 2014 following the departure of Carol Galante. Gebre, who has been with HUD since July 2013, last appeared before a group of industry leaders at the Five Star Institute’s Government Forum at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., on March 18, where he was interviewed about housing policy on stage by Five Star President and CEO Ed Delgado.”I’d like to thank Mr. Gebre for appearing with us last week at the Five Star Government Forum and for his service to the Federal Housing Administration,” Delgado said. “We look forward to continuing the dialogue with FHA and working with Mr. Golding to further the cause of homeownership throughout the United States.”HUD Secretary Julián Castro said that Gebre will be joining HUD Deputy Secretary Nani Coloretti’s team as a senior adviser.”First, I want to thank Biniam for the outstanding work he’s done to help families across the nation achieve their housing goals and dreams,” Castro said. “During his tenure, the FHA’s MMI fund turned positive and is on a strong track to continue growing stronger.  FHA also made important strides in making homeownership more affordable and in expanding access to credit for hard working, responsible families.  Through it all, Biniam has served our Department with distinction, and I know he’ll continue to make vital contributions in the Office of the Deputy Secretary. “Golding, who joined HUD in June 2013, held several senior positions during a 23-year tenure with Freddie Mac, including SVP of Economics and Policy, Program Executive of Making Home Affordable, SVP of Economics and Strategic Analysis, and SVP of Capital Oversight and Economics. He joined Freddie Mac as a senior economist in 1989. He has an A.B. in applied mathematics from Harvard College and a Ph.D. in economics from Princeton University.”Second, I would like to express my gratitude to Ed for taking on these new responsibilities as principal deputy assistant secretary,” Castro said. “He has worked in the housing industry for over 25 years, including for the past two years at HUD and previously at the Urban Institute. Ed brings a wealth of knowledge and insight to his new role. Ed has been an invaluable adviser to me during my time as Secretary, and I’m confident that his experience and vision will be an incredible asset to FHA and the Office of Housing. We are fortunate to have these fine public servants on our HUD team, and I’m convinced they’re ready to take on these new roles with the same energy, enthusiasm and excellence that they’ve always brought to their work.”It was not immediately clear whether the White House will nominate Golding for the position of commissioner at FHA, which will require confirmation from the U.S. Senate.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of the MReport and TheMReport.com.center_img HUD Senior Adviser Takes Reins at FHA Sharelast_img read more

He added that the incident was reported by a friend of the 48-year-old and that they were investigating the case.Stavros Neophytou, Manager of the Makarios Hospital’s Gynaecology Clinic, where the woman had the surgery, said earlier that there was no way a glove forgotten in someone’s stomach could exit from the mouth through vomit.“It is impossible” he said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
