On the financing side, the company has achieved further diversification of funding sources by executing Höegh LNG’s first sale and leaseback agreement for the Höegh Galleon with China Construction Bank Financial Leasing (CCBL).Through the deal, Höegh LNG is fully funded with both equity and debt for its current newbuilding programme, which will be completed with the delivery of Höegh Galleon in August 2019.“The LNG market continues its rapid growth by increasing 16% in the first half of 2019, driven by the continued coal to gas switch and ample LNG supplies available at very competitive prices across the market. zoomImage Courtesy: Hoegh LNG Norway’s Höegh LNG ended the second quarter of 2019 with in the red amid seasonal variations and dry docking costs. The company recorded a net loss of USD 3.6 million for the quarter, down from a profit of USD 4.5 million reported in the first three months of 2019. This decrease is the result of lower EBITDA, partly offset by reduced interest expenses.EBITDA for the period was at USD 45.7 million, compared to USD 55.9 million seen in the preceding quarter, mainly due to the lower income and higher Opex.“Höegh LNG’s results for Q2 2019 are negatively affected by seasonal variations and dry docking costs. Adjusted for these effects our underlying numbers are in line with previous quarters,” Sveinung J.S.

New Delhi: Six candidates, including incumbent Ravi Shastri, were on Monday short-listed for the high-profile post of the Indian cricket team’s head coach. The six candidates are former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson, ex-Australia all-rounder and Sri Lanka coach Tom Moody, former West Indies all-rounder and Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons, ex-India team manager Lalchand Rajput, former India fielding coach Robin Singh and Shastri. The candidates will give a presentation to the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) headed by legendary Kapil Dev, and a final decision will be arrived at by end of this week or early next week. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhBesides the country’s first World Cup-wining skipper Dev, the newly-appointed CAC comprises Anshuman Gaekwad and former women’s team captain Shantha Rangaswamy. “These six will give presentation for head coach before CAC. It has been learnt that these six have been short-listed for interview with the CAC,” a senior BCCI official, privy to the development, said. Before leaving for the tour of West Indies, captain Virat Kohli had said that he is in favour of Shastri continuing as the head coach of the Indian team despite the criticism he faced following the semi-final ouster from the World Cup. The current support staff comprising Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar were given a 45-day extension following the World Cup, covering the ongoing West Indies tour from August 3 to September 3. While the names of Hesson and Moody have been doing the rounds for a while, Simmons, who has had successful stints with Ireland and Afghanistan cricket teams, is also in the fray now. Simmons also served West Indies for a brief while, helping them to victory in the 2016 World T20 tournament in India before taking over as head coach of the Afghanistan national team in 2017. Among the Indians, Robin served as the fielding coach of the Indian team when it won the inaugural World T20 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy in 2007. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterRajput, who was the head coach of the team when it won the World T20, also had stints with Afghanistan and Zimbabwe. Hesson recently parted ways with IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab. Hesson coached the Black Caps for six years, highlighted by their memorable run to the 2015 Cricket World Cup final in Melbourne, a semifinal finish at the 2016 World Twenty20 in India and a home Test series win over England in April 2018 which lifted them to third on the world rankings. India may have failed to win the T20 World Cup in 2016 and the ODI World Cup in 2015 and 2019, but the Shastri-Kohli duo helped the country climb to the top of the Test rankings with a historic series triumph in Australia. Shastri was the team director till June 2016 until India lost in the World T20 semi-finals before being reappointed as head coach in 2017 after Anil Kumble’s departure.

WINNIPEG – A Manitoba law that forbade members of the legislature from switching party caucuses — an action commonly called floor-crossing — did not violate the Charter of Rights, a Court of Queen’s Bench judge ruled Tuesday.Justice Sheldon Lanchbery rejected a lawsuit brought by Independent legislature member Steven Fletcher, who was kicked out of the governing Progressive Conservative caucus last year.Under a law introduced by the former NDP government in 2006 and lifted earlier this month by the Tories, Fletcher had to either remain an Independent until the next election, or resign his seat and run in a byelection under another party’s banner.Fletcher’s lawyer argued the law, which was the only one of its kind in Canada at the time, violated Fletcher’s freedoms of expression and association under the Charter.But Lanchbery ruled that legislatures have the right to set their own rules, and the courts should not interfere.“Although (the floor-crossing ban) may be bad public policy, courts should not become the adjudicator of legislation or policy that is within the sole purview of the legislature,” Lanchbery wrote.“This is the very nature of parliamentary privilege. If a court were to do so, it would trample on the constitutionally protected separation of powers.”Lanchbery also ruled that Fletcher continues to enjoy the rights of a legislature member in terms of representing his constituents and speaking in the chamber. He added an Independent member may arguably have more freedom in the legislature than a caucus member.“He is not governed by the historical role of the party whip who determines who may speak on behalf of a political party on any issue before the legislature.”While the Tory government agreed last year to lift the ban — and passed the required amendment earlier this month — the government fought Fletcher in court on the principle of parliamentary privilege.Fletcher said Tuesday he considers his case a win anyway, because he forced the government to change the law.“The fact in the end is the government agreed … and we have freedom in Manitoba that was denied up until recently.”The ruling means, however, that a future government could bring in a similar ban.Premier Brian Pallister said Tuesday he would not do that.“Democracy is not well-served by tying people into a particular political party unnecessarily. I think members have the right to use their judgment.”While Fletcher now has the right to join another party, he has said he was fighting the law on principle only. He has made no sign of joining either of the opposition parties.

Members of the Ohio State women’s volleyball team attempt to make a play on the ball in a game against Rutgers on Nov. 8 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-0.Credit: Molly TavolettiAfter losing its last two matches, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team is looking to complete a clean sweep against Iowa (13-14, 5-11) at St. John Arena on Wednesday.No. 20 OSU (18-10, 9-7) went into Iowa City, Iowa, in October and swept the Hawkeyes (25-19, 25-17, 25-22), and Iowa is just 5-8 since that match.Under first-year coach Bond Shymansky, Iowa started its first 20 games with a 9-11 record, starting the Big Ten season 1-8. It was also swept in its first six Big Ten contests of the season.But OSU senior setter Taylor Sherwin said the team have to be aware of every team’s abilities.“We go into every single match having respect for opponents, no matter their level of play,” Sherwin said. “I think we need to respect them as if they were Penn State.”The Nittany Lions are the defending Division I NCAA Women’s Volleyball Champions.But since Iowa’s 9-11, 1-8 start to this season, the Hawkeyes have since gone 4-3 and have a ranked win on their resume coming against then-No. 12 Purdue. While the Buckeyes will be the Hawkeyes’ fourth-straight ranked opponent, sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe said OSU is prepared after losing two straight matches to then-No. 12 Illinois and Michigan.“I saw a lot of good things and we were pretty aggressive in the past few matches,” Sandbothe said.The Hawkeyes are last in the Big Ten in kills by opponent with an average of 12.99 per set and are 13th in the Big Ten in blocks by opponent and service aces by opponents with averages of 2.55 and 1.47 per set, respectively.Against the Hawkeyes, junior outside hitter Katie Mitchell said that OSU needs to be “more aggressive.”“We always need to be aggressive,” Mitchell said. “You never know what every team’s going to bring against you.”Wednesday’s match is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.The Buckeyes are then set to face off against the Division I national runner-up No. 2 Wisconsin (24-2, 14-1). The match is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start on Friday at St. John Arena..

Finance Minister Winston Jordan in Friday’s sitting of the National Assembly In that report the Minister—despite obfuscated responses in recent days—has had to revise his overall projection for national growth downwards again. He reports that despite the “historically early budget, the required shift in planning cycles at the sectoral levels failed to keep pace… growth for the year has been revised to 3.1 per cent from 3.8 per cent.”“Spending was less than one-third of the budgeted allocation,” according to the Finance Minister in his report on the nation’s financial affairs for the first half of the year.GoldOf note in the report is that while many of the traditional sectors such sugar and forestry continues to perform poorly, the gold sector which has been credited with keeping the economy buoyant in recent years, has now also begun to decline in terms of production and earnings from sales on the international markets.Total earnings from gold exports declined from a high of US$390.7M, in the first half of 2016, to US$388.8M in the first half 2017, a decline the equivalent of G$404M.This is according to the information supplied by Minister of Finance Jordan, in his Mid Year Report for 2017, presented to the 65 Members of the National Assembly on Friday last.The damning information contradicts recent pronouncements by Natural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman, who had projected growth in the gold sector based on the first quarter performance.Minister Jordan in his report however, attributes the decline in gold earnings and production due to poor weather, despite a marginal increase in average export price over the period. Actual Gold production fell by 1.7 percent to 317,096 ounces, in the first half of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016. Of the total gold declared, Minister Jordan says 65.7 per cent came from small and medium-sized miners and dealers, whose declarations were above projections while the two large gold companies were below projections.Jordan also blamed the “switching to lower grade material by one of the producers, to facilitate remedial work at the higher yielding mine,” as one of the factors that affected production for the large companies.Despite the less than desired performance in the first half of the year, the Finance Minister remains optimistic, “overall production is still expected to surpass its 2016 level, with the industry expected to grow by 1.7 percent in 2017.”Mining The Bauxite Industry also continued along its economic decline recording a further 11 per cent decline in production in the first half of this year.According to the information supplied by the Finance Minister, the bauxite industry declined by11.5 per cent, as a result of reduced production of higher valued grades. “This was due to poor weather combined with mechanical issues at one of the mines.”He reported however, production of metal grade bauxite (MAZ) increased by 97,016 tonnes or 21.3 per cent.He said the favourable international price for aluminum in 2017 is expected to boost output of bauxite during the second half of the year.The other mining and quarrying industry contracted by 13.1 percent, in the first half of 2017 in comparison to a positive growth of 13.9 percent in the first half of 2016. This decline, he said, is driven by a reduction in the production of diamonds, sand, and stones.“Declining diamond production was attributed to falling global prices and possible substitution by some miners into the gold industry as a result of the favourable prices of gold.”Traditional Sectors The Minister did report some good news in that the manufacturing sector recovered in the first half of 2017, growing by 9.9 percent following a decline of 14.1 per cent in the corresponding period in 2016, which he said was mainly due to expansion in the rice sector. According to Jordan in his report, rice production in the first half of 2017, recorded 349,867 tonnes, an increase of 31.6 percent over production in the first half of 2016. This noteworthy performance, he said, was attributed to a rise in acreage sown in all regions, especially in Region Five where acreage sown rose by 30 percent to 42,595.Overall, the agriculture, fishing, and forestry sector grew by 6.4 percent, in the first half of 2017, underpinned by the recovery in the rice industry and improved performance in the fishing industry.According to Jordan however, compared to the first half of 2016, rice export earnings declined by US$11.1M to US$77.2M, in the first half of 2017. This, he said, was due to a decline in volume exported despite higher export prices. The Minister noted however that due to high levels of production, exports are expected to grow during the second half of 2017, as millers reduce their inventories. Sugar Earnings ImproveThe Skeldon Sugar Factory has since also proved to the bane of the industry again for 2017. According to the Finance Minister, sugar production fell by more than 12 per cent to 49,606 tonnes at the half year, compared to 56,645 tonnes during the first half of 2016.“This shortfall was mainly due to no production at the Skeldon estate because the boilers were unsafe and required significant repairs” Jordan posited. -Yearly growth projection revised downwards from 3.8 to 3.1%As the country’s export earnings continues to plummet, gold has now joined the list of commodities reflecting a decline. The facts are laid bare in the 2017 Mid-Year Financial Report, presented to the National Assembly this past week by Finance Minister Winston Jordan, as is required under the Fiscal Management and Accountability Act. He also blamed the late supply of critical operating materials such as fertilizer; pest damage, particularly at the Blairmont and Uitvlugt estates; unfavourable weather; and strikes and absenteeism. As a result the industry was unable to reap its entire first crop, with approximately 150,000 tonnes of cane being carried over to the second crop of 2017.Despite the lower than anticipated production locally, prices on the international market did see sugar earning better than expected prices bringing in US$19M for the first half of the year.According to the information supplied by the Finance Minister, “despite falling production, as Guyana was able to receive higher than anticipated export prices for this commodity…Export earnings for sugar decreased from US$20.8M, in the first half of 2016, to US$19.8M, in the first half of 2017.”Among other exports, fish and shrimp as well as and rum and other spirits, and wood products showed significant growth in the first half of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016.

John O’Shea was lucky to avoid a serious injury after a poor challenge from Gareth Bale. Source: Tommy Dickson/INPHOMuch was made of the fact that as many as 10 Ireland players were ruled out in the lead up to last night’s game, while to make matters worse, James McCarthy had to pull out just before kick-off having originally been named in the starting XI.The absences, it turned out, were felt in some places more than others.At the back, coming in for Shane Duffy and Ciaran Clark, John O’Shea and Richard Keogh were remarkably assured for the most part, while in front of them, David Meyler was also fairly solid, even if his performance was not quite as impressive as the one he gave in Austria last November.O’Shea in particular led the backline superbly to the point where it seemed legitimate to wonder whether he could retain his place in the side beyond this game when other rivals for the centre-back slots return.It was in attack, however, where Ireland clearly missed certain individuals. Wes Hoolahan and Robbie Brady would have provided the team with some of the creative spark that was conspicuous by its absence for most of the 90 minutes, as Ireland struggled to create openings even after Wales were reduced to 10 men.Harry Arter, too, may have added a greater sense of urgency to the midfield play, while even the physicality of Daryl Murphy would have been a handy option off the bench to further test a tiring Welsh backline.4. Group D still wide openAt the halfway stage of the qualifiers, Group D looks likely, as many people have always predicted, to go right down to the wire.Following last night’s games, four points separate the top four teams. Ireland and Serbia are joint top on 11 points, with the latter first by virtue of their marginally superior goal difference. Behind them, on seven points each, sit Wales and Austria, who certainly won’t feel dead and buried by any means.As Martin O’Neill said after last night’s game, it’s a position that Ireland would have happily taken at the start of the campaign, nonetheless qualification remains a long way off.The Boys in Green have difficult trips to Wales and Georgia later this year, while Austria and Serbia are certainly capable of doing damage in their forthcoming encounters at the Aviva.Of the five remaining games, Moldova at home is the fixture that Ireland are most likely to come away from with three points, but even the group’s bottom-placed team kept Austria scoreless for 74 minutes in Vienna last night.5. Do we really need to manufacture atmosphere now?Last night’s match was certainly not one for the footballing purists, but even amid a first half that was short on quality, there was a distinct feeling of tension inside the Aviva Stadium, given the importance of the game.Yet people’s focus on the play was intermittently being undermined. It was a frustrating first half to watch as it was — every so often, Ireland laboriously worked themselves into a promising position, only for a misplaced pass or poorly executed shot to suddenly kill the team’s momentum.And as if this sense of annoyance wasn’t enough on its own, increasingly whenever a break in play occurred, the distinct sound of a trumpet was heard out of nowhere. Whenever this ghastly noise was inflicted upon the crowd, practically all those around me groaned in unison, and it seems unlikely that the press box was alone in its ire.It was like watching a bad movie where the soundtrack is constantly telling you how to feel with overly emotive musical cues. Fans will sing ‘come on you boys in green’ and other tunes when they want to, not at the whim of some annoyingly inescapable band.The stunning atmosphere in the second half occurred in spite of, rather than because of, the ubiquitous trumpet. Indeed, the action on the field will always be what inspires people — anything else is an unnecessary and unwanted distraction.The42 is on Instagram! Tap the button below on your phone to follow us!

A night in which football felt secondaryRARELY IF EVER has the Aviva Stadium felt so reserved post-match after what most Irish people agreed at the start of this week would be a ‘good’ result from the home team’s perspective.Ireland’s 0-0 draw with Wales left the Boys in Green joint-top of Group D with Serbia, but another issue dominated the reaction to Friday’s game.As Wales boss Chris Coleman pointed out afterwards, the Irish team’s behaviour in the first half was far from exemplary — Glenn Whelan was lucky not to receive a booking for leading with his elbow against Stoke teammate Joe Allen, while Shane Long was also fortunate to escape a caution for a late challenge on Ashley Williams.Yet these incidents paled in comparison to what followed. Gareth Bale and Neil Taylor both should have been sent off for appalling challenges on John O’Shea and Seamus Coleman respectively, but only the Aston Villa man was red carded.Coleman broke his leg after the horrendous lunge from Taylor, while moments before, John O’Shea was lucky to escape a similar fate following a dangerous tackle by Gareth Bale.The reaction was mixed. RTÉ pundit Didi Hamann branded Bale “cowardly” on Twitter, while the former Germany international added: “Why do people talk about a player’s good character when they go over the top of the ball and risk injury to opponents as Bale and Taylor did?”Chris Coleman, by contrast, was more sympathetic. The Wales boss emphasised that he did not have a chance to see either incident back, but defended the behaviour of both Bale and Taylor, suggesting there was no malice behind either challenge, while adding that the latter was “devastated” and wanted to apologise after the horrific injury to Ireland’s captain.Only the two players in question will know for sure whether the intent was there. At best, however, both were extremely reckless and certainly deserving of a harsher punishment than the usual three-match ban given to players who are sent off for violent conduct.But of greater importance than anything else that transpired during the game on Friday night is the long-term well-being of Toffees star Coleman.The Everton man now faces a lengthy spell out injured. It is a terrible blow for a player approaching the peak of his career. Quite how long he will be unavailable for is impossible to tell at this early stage, but the 28-year-old full-back certainly won’t be appearing again this season and most likely for some time thereafter.That sad outcome coupled with the moving tributes to the late Derry skipper Ryan McBride and others made it a night in which life beyond football was often very much at the forefront of people’s minds.2. Should Aiden McGeady’s introduction have come sooner?From early on, this pivotal Group D World Cup qualifier had the feel of a scoreless draw. The quality of football from both sides was decidedly dire more often than not.The Ireland camp insisted during the week that they would not play for a draw, but it was hard to see where the goals were going to come following a conservative selection by Martin O’Neill. Ireland lined up with three defensive midfielders essentially, even if Hendrick was tasked with playing further forward than usual. Out wide, they had players in Jon Walters and James McClean known for their physicality, work ethic and often potent finishing, rather than technical ability or creativity, while lone frontman Shane Long was consequently feeding off scraps all night.Wales were similarly uninspired. Aside from the odd flash of brilliance courtesy of Gareth Bale, they seldom threatened. Indeed, neither side had a shot on target in the first half.He arguably deserved to start, and as the game wore on, it became apparent that Ireland were crying out for a player of Aiden McGeady’s ilk. They needed someone capable of beating opponents and creating chances. If not before then, when Wales went down to 10 men, the on-loan Preston star should have been introduced immediately. Instead, O’Neill waited until the 80th minute to bring on the 30-year-old winger who was recently named Championship Player of the Month.McGeady made an impact, but 10 minutes was not enough time for a decisive contribution. Prior to this evening’s game, a 0-0 draw would have been considered an excellent result, given Ireland’s well-documented injury crisis. In hindsight though, it felt like two points dropped, against a Wales side who looked to be there for the taking.3.

Germany boss Joachim Low feels that the impact of Mesut Ozil’s photo with Recep Tayyip Erdogan was underestimated by the DFBOzil and Germany team-mate Ilkay Gundogan were on the receiving end of a lot of backlash from the German public after meeting the controversial Turkey president prior to the World Cup.While Gundogan apologised for the incident, Ozil remained silent on the subject.The Arsenal playmaker retired from international football at the end of Germany’s terrible title defence at Russia and accused the home supporters of racism and discrimination towards him for his Turkish ancestry.He also hit out at the German Football Federation (DFB) over its handling of the incident.Speaking for the first time on the matter, Low rejected Ozil’s claims of racism.Although he accepts more could have been done in regards to the Erdogan backlash.“Mesut Ozil has not called me until today,” said Low, according to SportsKeeda.“Mesut Ozil has clearly overstated his allegations of racism.“I think we underestimated the situation with the photos, I too underestimated. I thought, when the two met [Germany president Frank-Walter] Steinmeier, that we could concentrate on the World Cup.“This theme has also cost strength. For me, it was clear that I selected Mesut Ozil for sporting reasons.“Why I have not said something on this incident so far: It was like that his advisor called me late in the afternoon on Sunday.“He has informed me that Mesut will publish the third part of his statement.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“The player himself did not call me. In the past, there have always been good discussions with players in such cases. He has chosen this path, I have to accept that.“There never was a kind of racism. Throughout the time I was at the DFB, there has never been racist comments in our team.“Mesut and Ilkay have always identified with the values of the national team.”Having to leave the World Cup already after the group stage hurts so much. We just weren’t good enough. I’ll need some time to get over it. #SayNoToRacism #Worldcup #Russia2018 #M1Ö pic.twitter.com/mFOOhYQZen— Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) June 29, 2018Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff also rejected Ozil’s claims.“I spent nine wonderful years with Mesut in the national team,” Bierhoff said.“He is just a great footballer and has helped us to have this success and become world champion. But I clearly reject the racism accusation.”Germany and Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger sympathised with his former team-mate.“What I don’t understand in this whole discussion is why some people are discussing whether there is racism within the national team,” he said.“Mesut himself never said that in one sentence! I think it’s extremely sad how this has developed.”

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:hatian flag day, holy, pastors, sunday Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 01 May 2015 – Pastors are calling on officials to stop licensing secular events on Sundays; to keep the sanctity of the day. The request by the Providenciales Ministerial Fellowship comes weeks before members of the Haitian community prepare to host a Haitian Flag Day festivity on a Sunday in May. Bishop Bryant Cox, Bishop Samuel Williams, Bishop Andrew Stone and Father Bernard Been yesterday called on government and authorities to safeguard the day, as the Turks and Caicos is constitutionally and traditionally a Christian nation. The Pastors explained that they have no problem with public cultural festivities but will not stand for large secular events on a Sunday. It was also said that the plan is not to single out any particular community, but the clergy men were solid on the point that they must start somewhere. The PMF reminded that beyond the events becoming more regular on Sundays, they also fly in the face of country laws which prohibit the sale of alcohol on Sundays.

Close-up map of Annapolis in Maryland, where a gunman killed at least five people at the Capital Gazette newspaper. AFPA man firing a shotgun and armed smoke grenades killed four journalists and a staffer at Maryland’s capital newspaper, then was swiftly taken into custody by police who rushed into the building.Thursday’s attack on The Capital Gazette in Annapolis came amid months of verbal and online attacks on the “fake news media” from politicians and others from President Donald Trump on down. It prompted New York City police to immediately tighten security at news organizations in the nation’s media capital.Police said the suspect in custody is a white man in his late 30s.Acting Police Chief William Krampf of Anne Arundel County called it a targeted attack in which the gunman “looked for his victims.””This person was prepared today to come in, this person was prepared to shoot people,” Krampf said.Journalists crawled under desks and sought other hiding places in what they described as minutes of terror as they heard the gunman’s footsteps and the repeated blasts of the shotgun as he moved about the newsroom.Those killed included Rob Hiaasen, 59, the paper’s assistant managing editor and brother of novelist Carl Hiaasen. Carl Hiaasen said he was “devastated and heartsick” at losing his brother, “one of the most gentle and funny people I’ve ever known.” Also slain were Gerald Fischman, editorial page editor; features reporter Wendi Winters; reporter John McNamara, and sales assistant Rebecca Smith. The newspaper said two other employees had non-life threatening injuries and were later released from a hospital.Krampf said the gunman was a Maryland resident, but didn’t name him.Separately, a law enforcement official said the suspect was identified as Jarrod W. Ramos. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.Phil Davis, a courts and crime reporter for the paper, tweeted that the gunman shot out the glass door to the office and fired into the newsroom, sending people scrambling under desks.”There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you’re under your desk and then hear the gunman reload,” he wrote in a tweet. In a later interview appearing on the paper’s online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a “war zone.””I’m a police reporter. I write about this stuff — not necessarily to this extent, but shootings and death — all the time,” he said. “But as much as I’m going to try to articulate how traumatizing it is to be hiding under your desk, you don’t know until you’re there and you feel helpless.”Reporter Selene San Felice told CNN she was at her desk but ran after hearing shots, only to find a back door locked. She then watched as a colleague was shot, adding she didn’t glimpse the gunman.”I heard footsteps a couple of times,” she said. “I was breathing really loud and was trying not to, but I couldn’t be quiet.”The reporter recalled a June 2016 mass shooting attack on Orlando’s gay nightclub Pulse and how terrified people crouching inside had texted loved ones as dozens were killed. Said San Felice, “And there I was sitting under a desk, texting my parents and telling them I loved them.”Survivors said the shooting — though it seemed agonizingly long — lasted mere minutes. And police said their response was swift.Police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure said officers arrived within about 60 seconds and took the gunman into custody without an exchange of gunfire. About 170 people were then evacuated from the building, which houses other offices, many leaving with their hands up as police and other emergency vehicles arrived.At the White House, spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said: “There is no room for violence, and we stick by that. Violence is never tolerated in any form, no matter whom it is against.”Hours later, investigators remained on the cordoned-off site early Friday as they sought clues to the gunman’s motives.”The shooter has not been very forthcoming, so we don’t have any information yet on motive,” Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh said.In 2012, Ramos filed a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper, alleging he was harmed by an article about his conviction in a criminal harassment case a year earlier. The suit was dismissed by a judge who wrote Ramos hadn’t shown “anything that was published about you is, in fact, false.” An appeals court later upheld the dismissal.Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley said the community was grieving the attack on its paper.”These are the guys that come to city council meetings, have to listen to boring politicians and sit there,” Buckley said. “They don’t make a lot of money. It’s just immoral that their lives should be in danger.”The newspaper is part of Capital Gazette Communications, which also publishes the Maryland Gazette and CapitalGazette.com. It is owned by The Baltimore Sun.The Associated Press Media Editors promised to help Capital Gazette journalists as they recover. An APME statement called on newspapers nationwide to help the paper continue its community coverage and fight for freedom of the press.

Facebook has constantly been in news since quite some time now for its data leaks and data privacy concerns. The recent Christchurch attacks got live streamed on Facebook which has already given rise to a lot of controversy about the working of Facebook. Last month, the company came under the radar because of the deplorable working conditions of content moderators. Facebook’s content reviewers were affected by the disturbing content on the platform. The reviewers are affected to an extent that they are tried to overcome their PTSD by having sex and getting into drugs at work, reports The Verge. In January this year, advocacy groups such as Open Market Institute, Color of Change, and the Electronic Privacy Information Center among others, wrote to the Federal Trade Commission, requesting the government to intervene into how Facebook operates. FTC has been investigating on Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal based on whether the sharing of data with Cambridge Analytica and other privacy disputes violated a 2011 agreement with the FTC. According to a report by TechCrunch, Facebook has paid teenagers to spy on their behavior and the company has gone to an extent where it has been asking users to screenshot their Amazon order history page. As per a report by The Wall Street Journal, Facebook has also collected highly sensitive data through the back doors of other apps, such as ovulation trackers, in order to target ads at users who don’t even have their Facebook accounts linked to those apps. They are even targeting ads at users who aren’t on Facebook. As per a report by The New York Times, Facebook gave 60 phone device makers direct access to its users’ data and this action by Facebook is under criminal investigation. David N. Cicilline, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law writes in a report, “After each misdeed becomes public, Facebook alternates between denial, hollow promises and apology campaigns. But nothing changes. That’s why, as chairman of the House Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law, I am calling for an investigation into whether Facebook’s conduct has violated antitrust laws.” German antitrust authorities have already issued an order against Facebook’s data collection practices. Even an investigation by the British Parliament has compared Facebook to a company of “digital gangsters” that considers itself “ahead of and beyond the law.” According to David, Facebook is a repeat offender, and when a company repeatedly goes against the laws, action needs to be taken. He further added, “This includes removing members of the company’s board, or even top executives, along with other changes to the company’s business model to address dysfunction at the top.” F.T.C. can also pursue other ways to fix this problem. For example, after German antitrust enforcers found that Facebook abused its dominant market position, it required Facebook to stop combining different sources of its users’ data without their consent.” On the other hand, Facebook says, The New York Times has been negative towards it. A report by Redcode states that the argument is partially correct and they have backed it by the data. As per the report by Recode, “Times’ coverage of Facebook has been, on average, almost exclusively negative since the 2016 elections, according to new data analyzed by researcher Joe Hovde, a full-time data analyst at a retail tech company.” Hovde did the analysis by including stories with “Facebook” in the article headline and summary text, and further scored the words on a scale of -5 for very negative words such as ‘curses’ unlikely to show up in the Times article, to +5 for extremely positive, using words such as superb or breathtaking. Though there are enough proofs against Facebook but only time will tell if Facebook is actually involved in deceiving the users or the media is hiding the real picture.

Roth’s report said “this was no mere ‘bump,’ but rather extended contact to shove the barrel out of the way.”The report said the pair also unwittingly drove within inches of the suspicious item as they made their way through the secured area.Roth said officers at the scene didn’t smell alcohol on either Ogilvie or Connolly, but three officers thought something was “not right” about the pair. A watch commander was later told by an officer that “they may be drunk.”No field sobriety tests were given that night and both men were allowed to drive their government vehicles home from the White House.Roth concluded that both agents “displayed poor judgment and a lack of institutional awareness” and “more likely than not both Connolly and Ogilvie’s judgment was impaired by alcohol.”Roth also found that “it would have been far preferable” for the watch commander on duty that night to question the men further about their sobriety or ordered a field sobriety test.___Follow Alicia A.

Don Shooter shows health improvement WASHINGTON (AP) — Two senior Secret Service agents were “more likely than not” impaired by alcohol when they drove a government vehicle through a secure area at the White House earlier this year, a government watchdog concluded in a report released late Wednesday.Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth found that Marc Connolly and George Ogilvie spent about five hours at a bar during and after a retirement party for a colleague and ran up a “significant” bar tab before driving to the White House on March 4. Their tab included eight glasses of scotch, two vodka drinks, three beers and a glass of wine. Top Stories 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches Connolly, the deputy special agent in charge of the Presidential Protection Division, announced his retirement in advance of the report’s release. Ogilvie, the assistant special agent in charge of the agency’s Washington field office, has been placed on administrative leave, the agency said Wednesday.Both men denied being drunk and told investigators they only had a few of the drinks over the course of the night. Ogilvie said some of the drinks on his tab, including five glasses of scotch, were given to other people at the bar, though he could not recall who received the drinks.Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy said Wednesday he was “disappointed and disturbed at the apparent lack of judgment described in this report. Behavior of the type described in the report is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”Roth’s report said Ogilvie was driving and Connolly was his passenger when Ogilvie drove his government-owned vehicle into the secured zone where on-duty Secret Service officials were investigating a suspicious package that had been left in the White House complex by a fleeing driver.Ogilvie “had to do considerable maneuvering” as he drove slowly through the area and pushed a larger construction barrier about five feet with the bumper of his vehicle. Clancy, who was not told about the incident for several days, previously told lawmakers that the agents “nudged” the barrier as they drove into the White House complex.

The ever-popular Indonesian island pipped Asian metropolises Hong Kong and Singapore to the top spot, notwithstanding a little help from Hollywood. “With the region continuing to expand and improve its accommodation options it [Bali] has really shown its potential as a travel destination through our site this year,” Wotif.com Asia executive general manager Matthew Varley said. “Bali especially has managed to harness the positive hype around the major Hollywood movie Eat, Pray, Love, converting many into lovers of Bali.” Hong Kong beat Asian rival city and perennial winners Singapore to second place, although the south-east Asian republic is expected to bounce back in 2011. “Singapore in particular is expected to do very well with another major attraction launching in 2011 – the Gardens by the Bay,” Mr Varley added. The top 10 most visited regions remained largely unchanged, the exception being Indonesia, which moved up three positions to second place. Thailand proved its resilience by topping the list again in 2010. An online study conducted by the website has underlined Asia’s continuing appeal to travellers, with almost 40 per cent of those surveyed planning a trip to Southeast Asia in 2011. “With an incredible variety of landscapes, cultures and activities, Asia’s popularity with travellers world-wide continues to grow quickly,” Mr Varley said.Top Asian destinations (by bookings) in 2010 4.

During the first quarter of 2015, Barbados tourism sector broke a 25 year record to reach 171,471 long-stay arrivals.According to Alvin Jemmott, Chairman of Barbados Tourism Marketing, Inc. (BTMI), there were record arrivals in each of the first three months of 2015 and extended his congratulations to all industry workers and partners for their steadfast efforts on behalf of the destination.“This was a very strong winter season. The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) has predicted a five percent increase in long stay arrivals for the region for the entire year and we believe our performance in this first quarter bodes well for us to comfortably exceed that target.”Jemmott attributed this milestone performance to a number of factors including increased airlift capacity negotiated by the BTMI; healthy economic conditions in key markets, a commitment to developing new source markets, Barbados’ strong reputation among its global partners and the agency’s solid promotional strategies for reaching the travel trade, media and consumers in each market.CEO, William Griffith stated, “I am pleased to say that we have begun the process of updating a number of critical polices in the areas of human resources, marketing and finance in keeping with our commitment to increasing employee engagement and productivity; maximising our return on marketing investment, and achieving greater levels of fiscal prudence.”Griffith broke down the performance by market, which showed that arrivals from the UK, U.S., Canada, and Caribbean and Latin American grew by 12.9%, 27.7%, 28.4% and 10.6% respectively. Germany also grew by 23.6%.

state and federal health officials confirmed The Indiana State Department of Health said the patient at Community Hospital in Munster is a male health care provider who had recently returned from a trip to Saudi Arabia where cases of the virus have been most prevalent since it was first identified in 2012 Researchers have been largely stumped by the origin and transmission patterns of the virus which looks like the flu as it has gradually spread around the Middle East It has been linked to both bats and increasingly camels but the reservoir remains elusive There have been more than 400 cases of the SARS-like virus scattered among a dozen countries nearly a third of which have been fatal Saudi Arabia has seen the bulk of the casesmore than 320 with some 94 deathsbut others have also appeared in Jordan Britain France and Italy Representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Indiana’s state health department released details about the case in a briefing with reporters on Friday after a positive laboratory result was confirmed The man had arrived in Chicago from Saudi Arabia and then took a bus to Indiana (Public Health England later said it was advised of a passenger now confirmed to have MERS who was on British Airways Flight 262 when it arrived at London’s Heathrow Airport on April 24 The man then boarded American Airlines Flight 99 to Chicago) On April 27 the man began experiencing respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath coughing and a fever He went to the emergency room the next day and was admitted as a patient to Community Hospital where he received immediate care and was placed in isolation Hospital officials said in a statement on May 3 the patient remained hospitalized “in good condition” and is improving each day “The swift diagnosis and precautionary measures taken have undoubtedly greatly helped reduce the risk of this potentially serious virus spreading” said State Health Commissioner William VanNess II Staff at the hospital who had direct contact with the man before he was isolated were taken off duty and placed in temporary home isolation the statement added They will be allowed to return to work once the incubation period is overit could take up to two weeks for symptoms of MERS to appearand their laboratory results are negative No additional cases of MERS have been identified It remains unclear how the man became infected how many people he was in close contact with and whether those people became ill British and US health officials said they had contacted other passengers on the flights but asserted the risk of infection between them appears low (MORE: A Deep Look Inside the Battle Against MERS) Public health experts have warned for months that it could be only a matter of time before a case appeared in the states “Its something weve predicted and expected” said Peter Daszak president of EcoHealth Alliance a New York-based organization that patrols the animal-human health border and has worked closely with researchers looking for MERS’ origin Daszak said he remains concerned the virus is widespread in camels in Saudi Arabia and that it’s likely more rampant across the region where camels are common While the virus doesn’t pose a “high risk” to the public yet he said “people continue to get infected and travel with this virus Thats the concern for something that may have the ability to evolve into a pandemic risk” Dr Ian Lipkin an epidemiology professor at Columbia University and a leading researcher in the hunt for the virus’ origin and pattern of transmission said he wasn’t surprised either that a case has appeared in the US and originated in Saudi Arabia Officials in Egypt just diagnosed their first case and other infected people have recently traveled from either Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates to the Philippines Malaysia and Greece But the caseload in the Kingdom jumped 89 percent in April highlighting whether its Ministry of Health is doing enough to find the reservoir and warn the public about any threat In a rare move in late April King Abdullah dismissed the health minister without an official explanation The position was quickly filled by Labor Minister Adel Faqih who immediately promised “transparency and to promptly provide the media and society with the information needed” Saudi Arabia has come under fire for its handling of MERS as months pass with little or no progress made on nabbing its origin or how it spreads to people “It’s a difficult place in which to work” Lipkin said “but there’s optimism that the change in leadership may be productive” Contact us at editors@timecomThe National Investigating Agency has on Friday summoned Auqib Javeed a Srinagar-based reporter to Delhi for questioning in a sedition case
