UEFA Champions League Real Madrid Achieves 3rd Consecutive Final

Rabat – Real Madrid has secured a pass to the Champions League final for the third consecutive time over Bayern Munich, after a 2-2 draw match with the visitors losing 4-3 on aggregate.After the referee’s whistle, the Bavarians scored an early goal in the second minute of the game, thanks to Muller’s cross into the box, netted by Kimmich.Eight minutes later, Real Madrid made a quick comeback with a surprisingly, simple header by Benzema, crossed by Marcelo from the left. Despite Madrid’s burst of strength, Bayern continued to dominate for the remainder half.Just seconds before the end of the first halftime, a cross from Kimmich struck the left arm of Marcelo inside the penalty zone. However, the referee waved away Bayern’s claim to a penalty, a fact that Marcelo later admitted.He told reporters, “It’s a hand–it hits me in the hand, and it’s a penalty. If I say it does not hit me, I’m lying, but football is like that.“I do not talk about the referees, but it is clear that sometimes it is wrong in our favor and other times against. No matter what happens, you have to play football.”Despite the Germans’ effort to shake their rivals’ net, Benzema exploited the goalkeeper’s fault just a few seconds after the second half-time to score the second goal for Real Madrid.With determination and team spirit, the former Real Madrid player, James Rodriguez, evened out the score, followed up an initial kick to net his own rebound, 62 minutes into play.The German club was determined to pull out a win, but Zidane have managed to keep the score in Real Madrid’s favor.This match was marked by the Benzema comeback, who apparently went quiet this season, but Zidane, Ronaldo, and the rest of the team did not stop believing in his skills, as Marcelo told the press: “It is clear that he had to arrive, Karim is a great player and he does not need to score goals every day to show what he is worth.”In April, Ronaldo agreed, “As long as I’m with Real Madrid, you [Benzema] will have your place secured.”Despite Real Madrid President Florentino Perez’s anger over keeping Benzema as an attacker, Ronaldo and Zidane have reminded Perez of Benzema’s ability to achieve his goals, in addition to his importance among the players.Zinedine Zidane has repeatedly proven that he is good at what he does; he was right in sticking with his current team and working through obstacles to achieve better results.Will Zidane leave his mark on history and lead Real Madrid to its 12th Champions League title, the third in a row? read more

New residency law will benefit longterm refugees in Panama says UN agency

The new law will give recognized refugees who have been in Panama for more than 10 years the right to apply for permanent residency. After five years of permanent residence, they will be able to apply for Panamanian nationality.UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis said the agency welcomes this new development, “which offers long-term refugees an opportunity to settle fully in Panama.”Most of the refugees in Panama fled conflicts in Nicaragua and El Salvador during the 1980s. Until now, they had been living under a temporary status, which made it difficult for them to buy a house, open a bank account or get stable employment.Bill 298 on the regularization of long-standing refugees in Panama was passed by the National Assembly last week. It will come into effect six months after it is signed by the President, which is expected to happen in the coming weeks. The new regulations will apply only to those refugees who were granted status 10 years or more before the law came into force. “UNHCR is advocating for other refugees to be provided with the long-term opportunity to find durable solutions in Panama,” Ms. Pagonis said.In addition to those from Central America, Panama also hosts refugees from neighbouring Colombia. There is a total of nearly 1,000 refugees in Panama and another 900 people who live in the most remote and isolated regions of the country under a system known as Temporary Humanitarian Regime, according to UNHCR. 1 April 2008The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has welcomed a new law in Panama that will allow many refugees, some of whom arrived in the country over 25 years ago, to apply for permanent residency. read more

Lankan nabbed at Chennai airport

Customs officials in Chennai seized four gold biscuits each weighing 100 grams from a Sri Lankan passenger at the Chennai airport on Wednesday, the New Indian Express reported today. The four gold bars were carefully wrapped in black paper making it impervious to scanning and were stuffed in his underwear, skilfully enough, so as not to betray any uneven bulges.Salim Mohammed Nausath (45), who arrived in Chennai on a Sri Lankan Airlines flight at 2.45 pm on Wednesday, managed to clear his luggage, but was flagged down by the Customs sleuths on suspicion. Upon frisking, the passenger was found to be carrying four gold biscuits each weighing 100 grams wrapped in black paper and safely hidden in his briefs. On interrogation, the officials learnt that the passenger was only a carrier and that he was promised `1,000 for every biscuit that he smuggled into the country. A case has been registered and a hunt has begun for the gang behind the smuggling racket.Smuggling gold from the emerald isle to India through Chennai has become something of a weekly affair and Customs sleuths have begun to look with extra-care at any one arriving here from Lanka.

Malaysia Airlines inks 275B deal for 50 Boeing Max jets

Malaysia Airlines inks $2.75B deal for 50 Boeing Max jets by The Associated Press Posted Jul 27, 2016 2:22 am MDT Last Updated Jul 27, 2016 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Malaysia Airlines said Wednesday it has agreed to buy up to 50 Boeing Max planes in a deal worth $2.75 billion as part of its fleet renewal and said it hopes to relist on the stock exchange by 2019.The airline’s new CEO, Peter Bellew, said the deal included 25 firm orders, worth $2.75 billion, and the right to purchase another 25 jets, with deliveries to start in 2019. Airlines usually get a discount from aircraft list prices.It marked the first major purchase after the ailing national carrier was taken private after years of financial losses and further hit by two air disasters in 2014 — the disappearance of Flight 370 and the loss of another plane shot down over Ukraine.The airline is undergoing a $1.56 billion overhaul that included cutting 6,000 jobs and axing unprofitable routes.Bellew, Ryanair’s former director of flight operations, took over July 1 from Christoph Mueller, a turnaround veteran who recently resigned abruptly due to personal reasons.Part of the management team under Mueller, who was hired last year, Bellew said the carrier is on track to become profitable by 2018 and that it aims to relist on the local bourse by March 2019.The new 737 Max jets will be a “game changer” for the airline with sharply lower costs and greater efficiency, cutting fuel cost as much as 15 per cent, he said.The planes will be used for routes to growth markets in China, India, Pakistan and South Korea, and their purchase will be financed using loans and internal funds.Bellew said the deal will not affect the turnaround program and that it made more economic sense to buy rather than lease the planes.“We will have a lot more to do in the next five quarters to make sure the airline gets back on track but we are there at the moment,” Bellew said,“Malaysia Airlines is now on a path to growth across the ASEAN region. This new aircraft order will set the stage for our continued recovery and success into the next decade,” he added.Late last week, officials of the three countries searching for the disappeared Flight 370 aircraft said the operation will be suspended once the current search area in the Indian Ocean has been completely scoured. read more

Venezuela VicePresident speaks out against coup detat 130 bn lost to economic

Addressing the UN General Assembly, and without referring to Mr. Guaidó by name, Delcy Rodriguez Gomez called his self-declaration as interim president this past January a “coup d’état” and “an unspeakable twisted stumbling block on our historic path”.“This Member of Congress is an imperial puppet. He does not exist in Venezuelan politics. He is a criminal element who has been introduced to breach the peace in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela,” she said.“This self-proclamation was followed by recognition by a majority of governments of this unequal world; perhaps one of the worst mistakes in the diplomatic history of these countries.”Ms. Rodriguez  began her speech by expressing gratitude to speak “in this house of the international community”. Climate action has been one of the major themes of this year’s general debate, where all 193 UN Member States have a voice.Highlighting international cooperation in preserving the environment “which has been affected by the devastating capitalist model”, Ms. Rodriguez  expressed solidarity with The Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian and railed against “the barbarous commercialization of the Amazon, led by the President of Brazil”.The Vice-President said Venezuela also supports the urgent need to fight against poverty and inequality.However, she noted “a new kind of terrorism” which does not involve weapons but “the dominance of the dollar.”She said this “economic terrorism” punishes millions in the drive to “enforce doctrines of regime change and to steal the resources of nations”.“Economic terrorism against Venezuela has caused a nine-fold drop in its income. Between 2015 and 2018, the total losses for the Venezuelan economy reached $130 billion because of the brutal blockade imposed by the United States, which is a shameless robbery of all our resources.”   Ms. Rodriguez said the US has also “flexed its imperialist claws” against “kindred” revolutions in Cuba and Nicaragua.She called on the US to exert “less arrogance and more tolerance and coexistence with the other free nations of the world.” read more

New study shows impact of Brocks Developmental Psychology researchers

A new study published Monday, Jan. 11 in Canadian Psychology/Psychologie canadienne ranks Brock University’s developmental psychology researchers among the most productive and most frequently cited in Canada.The study (found here) examines the research productivity and impact of Canadian developmental psychology programs that offer graduate degrees. It was designed to help potential graduate students determine the richness of research environments at different institutions based on hard data.The study’s two lead authors, Ann Farrell and Thalia Semplonius, are themselves graduate students — both PhD students in Brock’s Department of Psychology.The two students say they conducted the research because existing studies focus on psychology departments in general.“There are no studies that provide information specifically on the developmental psychology stream in Canada,” Farrell says.“The paper provides insight into recent research productivity and the impact of developmental psychology programs in Canada,” adds Semplonius.“It can be used as a potential resource for graduate school applicants.”A previous study of Canadian psychology departments from 2003 to 2008 recognized Brock as being one of the top 10 most productive departments in Canada. This new research, based on data from 2009 to 2013 and focusing on the developmental psychology stream, shows Brock ranking third, behind McMaster and Dalhousie.“This manuscript highlights the remarkable strength of developmental psychology at Brock University, a strength shared across the entire department,” says department chair and paper co-author Catherine Mondloch.She says the breadth and significance of topics being investigated, such as children’s lie-telling, prospective memory in children and older adults, adolescent development, bullying, face recognition, and emotion perception, enriches the graduate programs.Thomas Dunk, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, believes the numbers demonstrate the high quality and productivity of Brock’s developmental psychologists. “Researchers in the Department of Psychology, including the graduate students, are among the very best in Canada. They have a very strong record of exceptional research,” Dunk says. “This study helps spread the news about one of Brock’s many strengths in terms of research and graduate education.” read more

Schoolgirl 12 had intense social media activity days before she hanged herself

The 12-year-old was an underage user of social media sites, which have a minimum user age of 13 When quizzed by police, Jessica’s friends denied she was bullied and said she “gave as good as she got”. Jessica’s mum Rachael Warburton told the inquest that Jessica said “she was mocked by friends because she did not have a mother.”But she added: “Jessica did not appear to be bullied by anybody. She seemed happy with her friends and it appeared that she had a close bond with her friends.” An inquest heard the schoolgirl had been tormented by bullies before her death A 12-year-old schoolgirl who hanged herself had “intense social media activity” in the days before her death, a coroner said on Tuesday.Jessica Scatterson, from Dallam in Warrington, was found in her bedroom with the word RIP written on her heel on 22 April 2017, two days before her thirteenth birthday.An inquest into her death heard she had been tormented by school bullies and was struggling to cope with the pressures of social media.Recording a verdict of suicide, senior coroner for Cheshire Alan Moore said Jessica had “felt emotionally overwhelmed” when she died and “the level and the intensity of her activity on social media platforms…cannot have failed to have influenced her intentions.”  The schoolgirl was an underage user of social media sites, which have a minimum age of 13.Jessica’s friends called the police after seeing harrowing messages from her on social media in the early hours of the morning. Disturbing handwritten notes and drawings were later found in her bedroom by police.Inspector Hannah Friend told the inquest that they contained references to “suicide and death” and a “hand-drawn picture of someone being hanged”.She said Jessica had come home with scratches to her face and a swollen eye after arguing with another girl. The matter was reported to the police but it was unclear who started the fight so no action was taken. The 12-year-old was an underage user of social media sites, which have a minimum user age of 13 Paramedic Joanne Newton told the inquest at Warrington Town Hall, Cheshire, that she noticed cuts to Jessica’s legs and ‘RIP’ written in pen on her right heel.   Mr Moore said a letter the schoolgirl posted online listing six reasons to take her own life was “highly significant evidence because it demonstrates a clear intent on Jessica’s part to take her own life and it also indicates the means at which she intended to do so.”He told the inquest: “This is a truly tragic case. It must have been utterly heart-breaking for all of you.“It is clear to me from the evidence that Jessica must have felt emotionally overwhelmed at the time she took her own life.“The level and the intensity of her activity on social media platforms, in particularly in the build-up to her death, cannot have failed to have influenced her thinking, her state of mind and her intentions.”   Her death came just seven months before 14-year-old schoolgirl Molly Russell took her own life after viewing suicide and self-harm posts on social media.After her death, Molly’s family discovered she had been ‘suggested’ disturbing posts on Instagram and Pinterest about anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicide.The Government is currently consulting on plans to impose a statutory duty of care on tech companies, putting a responsibility on them to protect users.Under its plans breaches would be decided by an independent regulator, which would have powers to fine and potentially even find company executives liable.

Grève des pharmacies un mouvement symbolique

first_imgGrève des pharmacies : un mouvement symboliqueFrance – De nombreuses pharmacies se sont mises en grève. Ce mouvement rare entraîne de nombreuses questions, concernant notamment le pourquoi et les conséquences d’une telle décision. Le 10 juillet, certaines pharmacies ont décidé de ne pas assurer les services de garde et d’urgence, que ce soit la nuit ou pour la fête nationale. Les officines protestent contre la baisse des marges dont elles souffrent depuis quelques années. Cette perte de revenus entraîne de nombreuses difficultés financières et les négociations avec le gouvernement n’ont pas eu les résultats escomptés. Néanmoins, pour les patients qui auraient besoin de médicaments en urgence, pas d’inquiétude. Si le syndicat refuse symboliquement de communiquer une liste de pharmacies de garde à l’Agence régionale de santé, c’est en sachant que les services seront toutefois assurés. En effet, le préfet de chaque département où ce mouvement est conduit réquisitionne des officines pour assurer les gardes. Cette mesure de précaution assurera la tranquillité et l’accès aux soins des personnes qui tomberaient malades en dehors des horaires d’ouverture classiques.  Le 15 juillet 2010 à 11:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Local jobs group Streamline permit rules

first_imgClark County’s largest nonprofit jobs promoter and business recruiter issued a position paper Tuesday calling on state government to streamline its permitting and appeals processes to boost the region’s ability to compete for jobs.The Vancouver-based Columbia River Economic Development Council also criticized what it described as “onerous” stormwater runoff regulations that force many local governments to comply but that unfairly exempt Seattle and Tacoma.Lisa Nisenfeld, president of the CREDC, said the council plans to press state government to make the changes it seeks. The council — which counts a wide range of the county’s business and government leaders among its membership — has briefed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee about its paper, Nisenfeld said, and will likewise brief Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna and the county’s state legislative candidates.“We will be rolling this out to other jurisdictions and interest groups,” she said. “It’s a work in progress.”In its paper, “A New Look at Washington’s Business Climate,” the council also urges the next governor of Washington to order an independent study that “gauges the interplay between Washington’s land-use system, environmental regulation and permitting systems, and business climate.”The study “should be completed quickly enough to inform the new governor’s agenda,” according to the position paper, which was approved by the CREDC’s board on July 19.last_img read more

Khaleda in jail after maiden conviction

first_imgBNP and former prime minister Khaleda Zia is being taken to the jail by a police car, after a makeshift court sentenced her to five-year imprisonment on Thursday. Photo: Collected.Though she had been confined to her residence several times and sent to jail once during the anti-Ershad movement and another time by the army-backed interim government after the 1/11 changeover for political reasons, BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia was sent to jail for the first time on Thursday as a convict, reports UNB.Read more: Khaleda lands in jailKhaleda, a 73-year-old former prime minister, was taken to the old central jail at Nazimuddin Road in the city after a special court sentenced her to five years’ imprisonment in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.After Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad, Khaleda is the second head of the government who got convicted in a graft case.Born in 1945, Khaleda got married Ziaur Rahman in 1960 when he was an army captain. They got two sons — Tarique Rahman, now in London, and Arafat Rahman Koko who died in 2015.After the assassination of her husband president Ziaur Rahman in 1981 in a military coup, a then-housewife Khaleda Zia stepped into politics in March 1983 and became BNP senior vice chairman following the demand of party leaders and activists.Read more: Those who burn people face such consequence: HasinaLater, she was elected party chairperson at a party council in 1984. Since then, she has been serving as the party chairperson.Khaleda had played a significant role in the street campaigns of 90’s against autocratic ruler HM Ershad, now the key ally of ruling Sheikh Hasina and her Awami League government.She was first arrested on 28 November 1983, followed by 3 May 1984 and 11 November 1987 during the anti-Ershad movement and kept confined to her then cantonment residence.The BNP chief was last arrested on 3 September 2007 during the military-controlled so-called emergency government and taken to a sub-jail in the parliament complex.She was released after suffering in jail for one year and seven days on 11 September 2008 following the bail from the apex court.The Zia Orphanage Trust graft case was filed after her arrest in 2008.Thousands of BNP activists throng the streets to escort the former prime minister, Khaleda Zia, on her way to a Dhaka court to hear the verdict on Thursday. Photo: CollectedKhaleda became the country’s first female prime minister following the victory of BNP in the 1991 general election. She also served as prime minister for a short-lived government in 1996. In the next round of the general election in 1996, her arch rival Awami League came to power.Khaleda again became prime minister when her party returned to power in 2001.After her government’s term ended in 2006, the scheduled January 2007 elections were delayed due to political violence and infighting, resulting in a bloodless military takeover.Read more: Continue movement until people’s rule established: KhaledaDuring its interim rule, the quasi-military regime charged Zia and her two sons –Tarique and Koko — with corruption.Khaleda never got defeated in any election as a candidate. She also got elected from five seats thrice in the general elections.She had to leave her cantonment residence, given by then government after the murder of her husband Zia, in 2010 just two years after her arch enemy Sheikh Hasina came to power through a military controlled election in 2008.After a number of movements during a period of severe political unrest between 2012 and 2014 to prevent ruling Awami League from holding the 10th general election in January 2014 without a neutral caretaker government, the Khaleda-led BNP and its alliances boycotted the election.Khaleda was reportedly confided to her Gulshan residence for a few days before the election.The BNP chief was again confined to her Gulshan office on 3 January 2015 a day before her party-led 20-party’s much-hyped 5-January rally in the city to mark what she said ‘Democracy Killing Day’ to protest against the controversial 10th parliamentary polls.Her son Koko died of heart attack in Malaysia on 24 January 2015 when she was confined to her office. Her elder son Tarique, also the party second in command, has been staying in the UK since September, 2008.Ninety-two days after her stay in her Gulshan office, Khaleda returned to her Gulshan residence on 5 April 2015. Her party carried out a violent street campaign over three months.Party sources said she is still facing around 36 cases filed with different courts and police stations across the country for corruption and violence.last_img read more

AL misleading people by falsehood over 21Aug grenade attack

first_imgBNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Prothom Alo File PhotoBNP on Thursday alleged that the prime minister and some ruling party leaders are making ‘futile’ efforts to mislead people with their ‘false’ propaganda involving Khaleda Zia and her son Tarique Rahman with the 21 August grenade attack, reports UNB.Speaking at a press briefing at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office, party senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi also accused the Awami League (AL) of trying to make a political gain by ‘disgustingly using’ the gruesome attack carried out in 2004.”The prime minister is saying Khaleda Zia and Tarique Rahman had involvement with the incident. As it’s so, they’re supposed to flee the country after such a massive incident. But they didn’t do that. The prime minister and her party’s some leaders are resorting to brazen falsehood and propaganda, and making pointless efforts to confuse people. But the truth can’t be suppressed,” he said.On Wednesday, prime minister Sheikh Hasina said a heinous incident like the 21 August grenade attack could not have taken place in broad daylight without the patronisation of the then BNP-Jamaat coalition.Hasina said the then prime minister Khaleda Zia was not made accused though she had extended direct cooperation in this regard. “She was the prime minister as well as the home minister at that time. She cannot evade her responsibility.”Rizvi said the AL has been doing ill-motivated politics since the beginning of the grenade attacks. “This incident was part of a deep-rooted blueprint…the real offenders could have been identified had there been a fair and neutral investigation into the incident.”He claimed that Tarique Rahman was implicated in the incident in the name of a supplementary charge sheet and convicted through a ‘dictated’ court verdict. “They did it with a political motive as part of their master plan and a deep-rooted plot.”The BNP leader alleged that AL is doing a ‘foul’ politics to destroy and belittle Tarique.He also claimed people believe that the story made by the ruling party implicating BNP and Tarique Rahman with the incident is false. “People have been surprised and shocked seeing such disgusting politics by Awami League.”last_img read more

The company is developing investigational physics-based artificial intelligence and deep machine learning solutions to help radiologists get more accurate readings of breast images. Through its research partnerships with leading hospital radiology departments, CureMetrix has evaluated more than 500,000 mammogram images to identify potential false negatives, which are undiagnosed cancers, and false positives, which are unnecessary recalls of patients to review anomalies that turn out to be normal. False negatives can occur at a rate of about one in five breast cancers.1 False positives affect 7-12 percent of all women after an initial mammogram.2 Reducing false positives could save a significant portion of the $4 billion per year spent on unneeded and sometimes invasive procedures such as biopsies.3 More importantly, reducing false negatives could save lives as well as reduce the cost and difficulty of cancer treatment through early detection.For more information: www.curemetrix.comReferences1. detection/mammograms/limitations-of-mammograms.html2.

first_img“I’m just looking forward to the opportunity and being able to embrace that and look forward to competition and whatever lies ahead.”’s Daniel Jeremiah reports the deal is worth $8.2 million, with $3 million guaranteed and up to $12 million could be made via incentives. That is not exactly the type of money given to a starting quarterback in the NFL, but then again, Stanton has never really been a starter.But the chance to earn that role in Arizona was appealing, as was the chance to reunite with his former offensive coordinator, who is now Arizona’s head coach.“This is a great opportunity for Drew,” said Cardinals coach Bruce Arians in a press release. “He really impressed me during the year we spent together in Indy. “Physically he has everything you want in a quarterback — big with a strong arm, can get it up the field and make all the throws. He’s just as impressive mentally and understands the position. I’m excited to get him here and compete.”Whom Stanton will be competing with remains to be seen, as the futures of Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley are very much up in the air. Only Brian Hoyer, who was recently offered a second-round tender by the team, is likely to return. The Arizona Cardinals went into the off-season potentially looking for some new blood to compete for the starting quarterback job in 2013, and they may have found just that in free agency with the addition of Drew Stanton.“I think in the back of my mind it was definitely my first choice,” Stanton said of the Cardinals during his introductory press conference. “Just when I saw [head coach Bruce Arians] come here and knowing what this team has to offer on so many different levels. In his career, Stanton has thrown for 1,158 yards, five touchdowns and nine interceptions. His most recent regular season game action came in 2010 with Detroit, where he led the Lions to a 2-1 record while completing 58 percent of his passes for 780 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions.Stanton, who was a second-round selection by the Detroit Lions back in 2007, has started four games in five NFL seasons. He’s appeared in 13 total contests and after backing up Andrew Luck in Indianapolis last season, was really just looking for someone to give him a shot.“Am I going to have a fair chance,” he said was his question going into the negotiations. “Knowing the type of guy that B.A. is and what they’re trying to do around here, the excitement that is surrounding this franchise.”Stanton said there “are so many pieces in place,” but acknowledges he knows the team is trying to find an answer at the quarterback position.“I want to be that answer; I’m going to do everything in my power to be that answer and given that opportunity, I feel like I can.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more
