first_imgKabul: Dozens of people were wounded with fatalities feared as a powerful explosion rocked Kabul early Monday, targeting an area of the Afghan capital housing military and government buildings, officials said. The rush-hour explosion sent a plume of smoke into the air above the Puli Mahmood Khan neighbourhood of the city, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said. An AFP reporter said he could hear gunshots shortly after the blast. Also Read – Turkey preparations for Syria offensive ‘completed’ “Dozens of wounded were taken to hospitals from today’s blast in Kabul,” health ministry spokesman Wahidullah Mayar tweeted. The area was quickly blocked off by Afghan forces and ambulances, while the nearby “Green Zone” diplomatic area was put on lockdown, with no one allowed in or out. The heavily-secured neighbourhood is home to some military and government buildings, including one shared by Afghanistan’s intelligence agency and defence ministry, as well as the Afghan Football Federation and the Afghan Cricket Board. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping Shams Amini, a football federation spokesman, told AFP that the blast occurred near the federation’s gates. “Some of our colleagues are trapped inside, we have reports of some injuries. We don’t know if the attackers have entered the building,” he said. Nearby Shamshad TV station, which was attacked in 2017, aired images of broken glass and damage to its offices but said it was not the target. No group immediately claimed responsibility, and police said they did not yet know the target or nature of the blast. Both the Taliban and the so-called Islamic State group are active in Kabul. The explosion came two days after the Taliban and the US began their seventh round of talks in the Qatari capital of Doha as Washington eyes a breakthrough before Afghanistan’s September presidential election. The negotiations have so far centred on four issues — counter-terrorism, the foreign troop presence, an intra-Afghan dialogue and a permanent ceasefire. A potential deal would see the US agree to withdraw its troops after more than 17 years in Afghanistan, igniting deep concerns among huge swathes of Afghans who fear the militants will return to some semblance of power. In return the Taliban would guarantee the country would never again become a safe haven for violent extremist groups, as happened with Al-Qaeda before the September 11, 2001 attacks. US officials have previously said they are hoping for a deal before the upcoming Afghan presidential elections, which have already been delayed twice and are now set for September.last_img read more

The anti-poverty group Campaign 2000 is hoping its report will prod the government to approve a soon-to-be-finalized poverty-reduction strategy before next year’s federal election, and enshrine its commitments in legislation.———U.S. INDIGENOUS PROTESTERS FIGHT TRANS MOUNTAINIndigenous protesters in Washington state are gearing up to fight the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Canada recently bought the project for $4.5 billion but it doesn’t only affect Canadian waters or lands. Many Indigenous activists in Washington trace their roots to both sides of the border and say they won’t give up until the expansion is stopped. They’re calling their fight against the project the Standing Rock of the north, comparing it to the fierce protests that stalled the Dakota Access Pipeline.———POLITICS FAR FROM CLEAN IN QUEBEC: WHISTLEBLOWERA former star witness in Quebec’s corruption inquiry says the Liberals must be defeated in October’s election in order to clean up politics in the province. Lino Zambito says most of the people convicted in the high-profile cases investigated by Quebec’s anti-corruption unit have pleaded guilty and served no jail time, while key figures at the provincial level have barely been touched.

20 May 2008Two people from the Maasai community of Laikipia in Kenya are to be given training in documenting and archiving their cultural heritage through a new project launched today by the United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The two people from the Maasai community will travel with an expert from the National Museums of Kenya to the United States for intensive, hands-on training in documentary techniques and archival skills at the American Folklife Center and the Center for Documentary Studies, which are collaborating on the project with WIPO.“Our goal is to empower tradition-bearers to preserve and pass on their own traditional cultures if they wish to do so while safeguarding their intellectual property rights and interests,” Francis Gurry, Deputy Director General of WIPO, said today.New technologies provide communities with fresh opportunities to document and digitize expressions of their traditional culture, but these can be vulnerable to unwanted exploitation, according to a statement released by WIPO.WIPO will also provide the Maasai people with a basic kit of field equipment, computers and software for their own use when they return to Kenya.The pilot programme announced today stems from a request made directly to WIPO by the Maasai community, and is aimed to empower indigenous communities to manage their intellectual property in a way that corresponds with their development goals. read more

Chrissy Lackner, left, and Daniel Antwi-Amoabeng are all smiles in the Library’s new work space for grad students.Grad students have a lot of work to do and not enough quiet space in which to do it. But new graduate students’ study space in the James A. Gibson Library has helped make their lives a little easier.The newly renovated area on the west side of the Library’s sixth floor offers a meeting room and quiet work areas for graduate students. At the recent grand opening to celebrate the new space, PhD candidate Chrissy Lackner said it is welcome and has long been in demand.“Graduate students need an area that’s primarily quiet and conducive to working for long periods of time,” said Lackner, senate representative for the Graduate Students Association (GSA). “They need an environment that’s appealing because they’re going to spend a lot of time there.”So far, that’s been the case with the new space, which was created in consultation with graduate students. In the short time it’s been open, students have flocked there and worked long into the night, said GSA president Daniel Antwi-Amoabeng.“I’ve been here a few times, and every time I’ve been here, it’s always been full,” he said.The new space features:22 large study carrels two computer workstations 38 bookable lockers nearby for storage two lounge chairs bookable meeting/presentation/group space for up to 10 students“With the growth in graduate programs at Brock University, the Library has been examining the needs of graduate students for some time,” said University librarian Margaret Grove. “We are thrilled to open these new spaces, which are designed to foster both individual study and collaboration.”Related story:• Renovations underway on Library’s graduate study space read more

Texas AM Coach Kevin Sumlin Receives Racist Threatening Letter

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin’s team blew a 34-point lead Sunday in a game against UCL, in Pasadena, Calif. (AP Photo/Danny Moloshok, File)HOUSTON (AP) — Texas A&M and law enforcement officials were investigating Thursday night after football coach Kevin Sumlin received a racist and threatening letter at his home.His wife, Charlene Sumlin, posted a picture of the letter , which had a return address in Houston, on Twitter on Thursday night. The handwritten letter read: “You suck as a coach! You’re a [racial epithet] and can’t win! Please get lost! Or else.”On the post, Charlene added: “People of 2017: please tell me how any part of this is OK? And to the sender: did it occur to you that a child may open it?” At the end of the post, she added #orelseWHAT?Later on Thursday night, Texas A&M President Michael Young and athletics director Scott Woodward issued a joint statement condemning the letter and adding that they are “working with law enforcement authorities to bring the sender of this letter to justice.”The statement said that they were doing everything they can to ensure the safety of Sumlin and his family.“There is no excuse for hatred and, as a community, we will not allow the ignorance of some to intimidate any member of our community,” the statement continued.On Sunday night in Los Angeles, Texas A&M squandered a 34-point third-quarter lead in a season-opening loss to UCLA. That loss led to waves of criticism directed at the coach. Noteworthy among those critics was university system regent Tony Buzbee, who took to Facebook to express his displeasure with Sumlin.“Our players were better tonight,” Buzbee, a Houston attorney wrote Sunday night after the stunning loss. “Our players were more talented tonight. But coaches were dominated on national TV, yet again. I’m only one vote on the Board of Regents, but when the time comes, my vote will be that Kevin Sumlin needs to GO. In my view, he should go now. We owe it to our school and our players. We can do better.”The Aggies will host Nicholls State on Saturday night.The 53-year-old Sumlin, the first black head football coach at A&M, has three years and $15 million left on his contract that runs through the 2019 season. read more

first_imgCaterpillar and Bucyrus International have received notification from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) that it has closed its investigation into Caterpillar’s planned acquisition of Bucyrus. The DOJ action, in addition to the expiration of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act waiting period, concludes the antitrust review process in the US. The clearance by the DOJ will allow the acquisition, valued at approximately $8.6 billion (including net debt), to proceed as soon as all other conditions to closing have been satisfied. The transaction is expected to close in mid-2011. The implifications of this acquisition were considered in detail in IM, December 2010. “We were very pleased to hear this positive news from the Department of Justice about this strategic acquisition,” said Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman. “Since we announced our plan to acquire Bucyrus last November, we have continued to hear from our customers that this complementary expansion of our mining product range is what they have been looking for from Caterpillar. This will position us to better serve the increasingly complex requirements of those customers,” Oberhelman added.Cat says the acquisition is based on its key strategic imperative to expand its “leadership in the mining equipment industry, and position Caterpillar to capitalise on the robust long-term outlook for commodities driven by the trend of rapid growth in emerging markets which are improving infrastructure, rapidly developing urban areas and industrialising their economies.”Tim Sullivan, Bucyrus President and CEO, said, “This is a critical and important step as we move toward closing this historic transaction that will deliver tremendous value to all the Bucyrus stakeholders.”Caterpillar will fund the acquisition through a combination of cash from its balance sheet and debt. Caterpillar does not plan to issue equity to help pay for the acquisition.last_img read more

first_imgComputerization has had a major impact on just about every aspect of manufacturing and fabrication. It’s also led to a democratization of the process, enabling enthusiastic DIYers with a bit of know-how (and a little extra cash in their bank accounts) to create some pretty amazing things with devices like 3D printers, desktop laser cutters, and programmable CNC machines.It’s this last piece of equipment that WikiHouse wants to help you put to good use. The goal of WikiHouse is to allow people to freely download “open source structures” which can be opened and modified using Google Sketchup. The plans’ building components are designed to be milled from 18MM sheets of plywood, and the resulting pieces can be fitted together like a giant puzzle. They’re even labeled during fabrication, making it perhaps a bit more like building an Ikea desk (though that can be puzzling at times). In addition to marking pieces for easy assembly, the CNC will even cut a wooden mallet that can be used to ensure a tight fight between panels.The finished skeleton — when assembled properly on a solid footing — is ready to clad, glaze, wire, plumb, and finish. Though WikiHouse assures that you won’t need any power tools to assemble your creation, I’m going to hazard a guess that all the required bolting might be a touch more enjoyable if you grab your trusty cordless impact driver and sockets.WikiHouse has been hammered (pardon the pun) by traffic, so while you wait for the site to return you can download Google Sketchup and the WikiHouse plug-in. That CNC machine will set you back a few thousand bucks, but why not split it with some friends? Once WikiHouse is rolling, you can take turns churning out sheds, pergolas, and garages with each other.More at WikiHouse (cached) and Treehuggerlast_img read more

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3275478 By Isabel Hayes Share40 Tweet Email 37 Comments A “DEEPLY RELIGIOUS” man who held his girlfriend prisoner, made her read the bible and threatened to cut her throat, has avoided a jail term.Andris Andruss (56) dragged his partner of two years back inside their Finglas home after she told him she was leaving him. He then forced her to read the bible while he sharpened a kitchen knife in front of her and told her he was going to stab her.Andruss of Parkview Drive, Finglas, Dublin , pleaded guilty to one count of false imprisonment at his home on 21 July, 2015.At Dublin Circuit Criminal Court yesterday, Garda Mark Reilly told Úna Tighe BL, prosecuting, that the woman packed her bags on the evening in question after ending the relationship. However Andruss, who was extremely drunk, dragged her forcibly back into the apartment before grabbing a knife.Gardaí were called to the scene after the woman managed to phone her friend when Andruss briefly left the room. She told her friend she was being held against her will and asked her to get in touch with her daughter. The daughter then called gardaí.When gardaí arrived, Andruss told the woman that if they entered the house, he was going to cut her throat. He attempted to hide the weapon when gardaí entered the apartment, before being disarmed.He has no previous convictions.LutheranDefence barrister, Michael Bowman SC, said Andruss, a member of the Latvian Lutheran Church in Ireland, was a “deeply religious” man who was extremely upset at the news his partner was leaving him. He was highly intoxicated at the time of the incident.He has since stopped drinking alcohol, accepts the relationship is over and has made no attempt to get in touch with the victim, the court heard. He has health problems, including cancer and a serious knee injury.Handing down a suspended two-and-a-half year sentence, Judge Melanie Greally said it was an extremely frightening incident for the woman. “It had a considerable psychological effect on her,” the judge said.But she noted there were significant mitigating factors in the case, including the fact Andruss had no previous convictions, was in poor health and had a good employment record.Judge Greally also noted the victim told gardaí she had no wish to pursue a court case and just wanted to get on with her life. As a result, Andruss’s guilty plea was “valuable” and a “genuine expression of remorse”, the judge said.She noted the woman “still retained some considerable fear” of Andruss, despite the fact he had made no effort to contact her. As a result, the judge ordered Andruss to stay away from his former partner for a period of five years.

In Other News Pennsylvania Depot to Add 200 Workers Senate Democrats Denounce

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Tobyhanna Army Depot in northeastern Pennsylvania plans to hire more than 200 people next year, Deputy Commander Frank Zardecki said this week. The depot currently employs 3,388 personnel, reported the Pocono Record. A new economic impact study sponsored by the Pennsylvania Military Community Enhancement Commission found that Tobyhanna Army Depot generates an annual economic impact of about $2 billion; all together the state’s 12 major installations generate about 55,000 jobs, $4 billion in labor income and $11 billion in total economic output, according to the study. “Tobyhanna is crucial in Pennsylvania, but particularly here in northeastern Pennsylvania,” said Lt. Gov. Mike Stack, the commission’s chairman. “It’s the leading job creator and we have to do everything we can to protect that,” he said. … In the wake of news reports that the Trump administration is planning to suspend enforcement of key components of the 2006 Military Lending Act, the Senate’s 47 Democrats and two Independents on Wednesday urged OMB Director Mick Mulvaney to continue to protect service members and their families from financial fraud, predatory loans and credit gouging. The New York Times reported the administration is planning to halt routine examinations of lenders for violations of the law. “For our service members, especially those who are deployed overseas facing hostile fire, it is unreasonable to place the burden of detecting and reporting MLA abuses on service members, especially when they should be given every opportunity to focus squarely on their missions,” the Democratic conference stated in a letter, according to a news release from the office of Jack Reed (R.I.), ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.Army photo by Tony Medicilast_img read more
