Jets Crumple Redskins, 34-20

first_imgEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Rusty and sloppy in the first half, sharp and solid in the second for the New York Jets.Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, and the Jets overcame a sluggish start to beat the banged-up Washington Redskins 34-20 on Oct. 18.Chris Ivory ran for 146 yards and a TD on 20 carries for the Jets, who improved to 4-1 for the first time since the 2010 team opened 5-1. Brandon Marshall had seven catches for 111 yards, and Eric Decker also caught a TD pass.The Jets, coming off a bye-week break, trailed 13-10 at halftime, with the Redskins (2-4) scoring their points off three turnovers — all by Bashaud Breeland.But New York opened the second half with 24 straight points to take control against a Washington team without several starters, including wide receiver DeSean Jackson, left tackle Trent Williams and cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Chris Culliver.Kirk Cousins was 25 of 43 for 196 yards with a touchdown to Pierre Garcon and two interceptions for the Redskins. He has two interceptions each in four games this season — all losses. Cousins has no INTs in Washington’s two wins.The Redskins downgraded Jackson to out Oct. 17; he hasn’t played since the season opener because of a left hamstring injury. Tight end Jordan Reed, center Kory Lichtensteiger and backup running back Matt Jones were also out.With so many injuries, even Robert Griffin III was active — as the Redskins’ third-string quarterback — for the first time this season.Nick Folk tied it at 13 with a 39-yard field goal early in the second half. Two plays later, the Jets got the ball back when Darrelle Revis made an easy interception of Cousins’ pass for Ryan Grant. It was Revis’ sixth takeaway of the season.With the ball at the Redskins 18, the Jets wasted no time as Fitzpatrick took off up the middle, got a big block from tight end Kellen Davis near the goal line and got into the end zone for a 20-13 lead.Marshall made it 26-13 with a terrific fingertips catch just off his shoe tops, getting inside of Breeland on a low throw. He then scooted down the sideline for a 35-yard TD — as Breeland sat on the field with his head in his hands in disbelief.New York got the ball right back when Marcus Gilchrist picked off Cousins’ deep pass for Jamison Crowder. Decker caught a 2-yard pass to put the Jets comfortably in front, 34-13 early in the fourth quarter.The Redskins crept closer when Jeron Johnson blocked Ryan Quigley’s punt and Rashad Ross recovered in the end zone with just under four minutes left. But Davis recovered the onside kick.The Redskins, starting at the Jets 37 after Breeland recovered Decker’s fumble on New York’s opening drive, needed seven plays to get into the end zone, capped by Cousins’ 2-yard toss to Garcon.The drive was kept alive by Ryan Grant’s 6-yard catch on third-and-5 — ending the Jets’ streak of consecutive third-down stops at 19.New York came right back, tying it on Ivory’s 1-yard run that capped an 11-play, 83-yard drive.Washington forced another turnover when Breeland ripped the ball out of Marshall’s hands after a 12-yard catch, and Dustin Hopkins kicked a 54-yard field goal to tie it at 10.The Jets turned it over again on their next possession as Fitzpatrick’s pass tipped off Marshall’s hands and Breeland made a diving interception. Six plays later, Hopkins kicked a 30-yarder for a 13-10 lead.(DENNIS WASZAK Jr., AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Slovakia Defeats Russia, Switzerland & Romania Draw

first_imguefa euro 2016 – group stage (group a) Switzerland and Romania kicked off Matchday 2 of group play of UEFA Euro 2016. Switzerland was the better side in the opening 15 minutes and threatened on two occasions Romania’s goal. But it was the Romania’s who opened the score when they were awarded a penalty, which was successfully converted by Stancu. After the goal,the Swiss continued to dominate the game and and pulled level 12 minutes after the restart. Romania poorly cleared a corner and the ball fell to Mehmedi who rocketed one passed Tatarusanu. Neither team created a chance to take the lead as Switzerland dominated the possession. The game ended 1-1, a result that favors Switzerland in Group A. The Swiss now sit in a comfortable position to advance to the knockout stages, sitting in 2nd place on 4 points. A win will only do for Romania in their final group match against Albania, to keep their hopes alive for progression. Slovakia defeated Russia 2-1 in the second matchday of Group B and earned 3 important points in their quest to progress to the Knockout Stages. In Group A, Switzerland and Romania played to a 1-1 draw, a result that puts Switzerland in a good place to advance from the Group Stages. Slovakia was the overall better side in today’s match against Russia. The opening goal came at the half-hour mark from former Olympiacos player Vladimir Weiss. Weiss’s right footed shot was well placed, beating Akinfeev to give Slovakia the 1-0 lead. Right before the halftime whistle, Hamsik’ tremendous strike doubled Slovakia’s lead and gave them the clear advantage to get all three points. Russia created minimal opportunities to get back in the game but with ten minutes remaining, the Russian’s pulled on back. The one goal was not enough for the comeback and Slovakia came away with the victory and all three points. Slovakia’s win complicates matters in Group B, keeping them well in contention to progress. On the other hand, Russia’s loss will put them in a difficult position with one game remaining against Wales. Both teams will await to see the results of the other group match between Wales and England , which is scheduled for tomorrow. **PAOK’s Robert Mak was in Slovakia’s Starting XI and played for 80 minutesSwitzerland’s Breel Embolo controls the ball in front of Romania’s Vlad Chiriches, left, during the Euro 2016 Group A soccer match between Romania and Switzerland at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris, France, Wednesday, June 15, 2016.

Jo Brand Sets Off On A Hell Of A Walk

first_imgJo Brand on Friday set off on day one of her BT Sport Relief Challenge: Jo’s Hell of a Walk, a brutal ordeal which will see the 58-year-old attempt to walk an incredible 150 miles in just seven days.With bitter cold, wind and rain for much of the first day, it was a harsh start to a long and gruelling week.The challenge will see her walk east to west right across the width of the country, roughly following the Trans Pennine Trail, finishing in Liverpool next Thursday. The challenge is sponsored by BT, a long-term supporter of Comic Relief challenges since 2009.Setting off at 8:45am from the Humber Bridge, Jo was joined by members of the public, including Great British Bake Off champion of 2014 Nancy Birtwhistle, who lives in the area, to wish her luck and see her off.Jo walked approximately twenty miles on Day 1, crossing the Humber Bridge and passing through North Ferriby, Brough and finishing up in Laxton.As Jo set off, she said: “I can feel the hand of history upon my toenails! I’m not looking forward to this at all. It’s such a long way and I’m not fit, I’m not athletic, and my walking style is best described as ‘fat old woman’. To be honest what I’m really worried about at this stage is that I might fall over or need the loo after five minutes!”Starting out her career as a psychiatric nurse, Jo has spent many years since her rise to fame raising awareness about mental health issues – so it is fitting that during her journey she will highlight the work that Sport Relief does around mental health and issues that impact women and girls across the UK and the world’s poorest communities. Jo will be joined by famous friends and people helped by funded Sport Relief projects along the route to spur her on.last_img read more

Divorce can result in battles over efforts to alter spousal agreements

first_imgTORONTO — A battle between Rudy Giuliani and one of his ex-wives has cast a spotlight on an issue affecting a growing number of Canadians. The former New York City mayor’s efforts to cut spousal support to one of his ex-wives because his income shrunk this year has sparked some interest among older divorcees facing similar battles, says a Toronto family lawyer.“I think this is becoming a pervasive issue as we see things like grey divorces,” says Diana Isaac of the Shulman Law Firm.Celebrities, athletes and well-paid professionals who end longstanding marriages often face obligations to pay significant sums to their former spouses. Spousal support — distinct from child support —is most likely to be paid when there is a large discrepancy between the spouses’ incomes after they separate and if one spouse is the primary caregiver of young children. As incomes change, pressure can mount to alter those agreements.However, changing spousal support isn’t just done on a whim. Courts only entertain alterations if the change in income — either higher or lower — is so significant and unforeseen that would make the original order unfair or unreasonable, Isaac said.Particulars about the relationship are considered: Did one spouse not work because they stayed home to care for the children or household? How long was the marriage? Was that spouse’s earning power affected because they were out of the job market for many years?The main reasons for seeking a change in spousal support include a large increase in an ex-spouse’s income; one of the parties being forced into early retirement; bankruptcy; and when one enters into a new relationship with support obligations to a new partner and/or children.Some agreements have terms while others only end at death.A couple married for 30 years where one person is highly dependent on the breadwinner likely wouldn’t see spousal support terminated because the prospect of them becoming economically self-sufficient in their 50s is remote, she said.With more people marrying at an older age after accumulating their own assets, pre-nuptial agreements or marriage contracts are often entered into regardless of gender, Isaac said.One Canadian woman who spent years battling with her ex-husband over spousal and child support said in hindsight that a marriage contract would have saved heartache and huge legal bills.“It was the worst waste of money ever,” said “Arlene” in an interview, on condition she not be identified because she fears for her safety for talking publicly about her situation.Arlene estimates she spent more than $500,000 over the past six years in legal fees and the spousal and child support she was required to pay her ex-husband even though their three children lived with her full-time.Both spouses went through years of hearings, family psychological testing and evaluation trying to get orders changed.Arlene said she tried to get the court’s order changed by arguing her ex-husband’s stated income was underreported, while he sought to be absolved of final payments he was required to make, before they recently came to a final agreement.“I thought I was a smart businesswoman but I did not see it coming and I was definitely not prepared,” she said.The cost of changing a spousal agreement varies widely depending on the complexity of finances, how much work is required to prove income and the combativeness of the ex-spouses.“Trials can end up being six figures,” Isaac says, adding in some cases seeking a change in support costs more than the original divorce.Cases involving very high-income earners or high-profile people can be contentious, but often the parties don’t want to go to court to air out their private business. The alternative can be mediation or arbitration.In Canada, where spousal support rules are set out in the federal Divorce Act, payers of spousal support can claim a tax-deduction if it is paid monthly but not if paid in a lump sum, while payments are taxable for recipients. More than 2.5 million Canadians were classified as divorced or separated according to the 2016 census.Common-law partners may be entitled to spousal support across Canada except in Quebec. With Canada’s no-fault divorce law, the reasons behind the marriage’s collapse doesn’t affect a spouse’s financial obligations to the other spouse.Ross Marowits, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Grassroots tech group takes startup approach to fight Brexit

LONDON — Software engineers, entrepreneurs and product managers huddle in small groups, brainstorming ideas and scrawling thoughts onto Post-it Notes on a wall. The project leader exhorts them to “think of products around these themes.”It’s not a startup but a grassroots band of volunteers from London’s tech industry developing websites to prevent Brexit, Britain’s departure from the European Union that has fallen into complete disarray. They hope to put public pressure on politicians to give people a second vote. While the group is small, their engagement in politics underscores the concerns among businesses and entrepreneurs who stand to suffer from tariffs and border checks.“I’ve never been a political person before, really,” said German-born venture capitalist Andreas Cser. A longtime London resident, he joined the group, Tech For U.K., after he found Brexit made Britain less welcoming for foreigners and exposed the “incompetence and brazen political hypocrisy” of its political leaders.Cser, whose firm, Automat Ventures, invests in companies that use artificial intelligence, helped connect Tech For U.K. to computer scientists. “What I know about is how companies develop tech products,” and how they scale them up, he said.Since its launch last year, Tech For U.K. has rolled out a dozen mobile-friendly websites. They help users automatically send anti-Brexit messages by postcard or voicemail to their politicians or spotlight the EU’s benefits to Britain. Volunteers donate their time and the group also gets limited funding from anti-Brexit campaign group Best For Britain, which vets the digital tools before they go live. The latest, launched on the weekend, lets Facebook and Instagram users add an augmented reality “Stop Brexit” button to photos and videos.Britain was due to depart the EU on Friday but the process has been delayed after Parliament rejected the Brexit deal Prime Minister Theresa May negotiated with the EU. If she gets it passed in another potential vote this week, Britain could leave by May 22. If not, it has until April 12 to indicate to the EU a “new way forward.”One of the group’s goals is to rally support for a second referendum on Brexit. There’s no majority for that in Parliament, but a big march in London on Saturday to demand one suggests momentum is growing. A retired academic’s online petition went viral last week, receiving over 5.6 million signatures in favour of revoking Brexit altogether.With many outcomes to Brexit still open, Tech for U.K.’s aim is to persuade those on the fence about the benefits of EU membership and give people who are opposed to leaving a way to express their views.“At the end of the day, it’s for those who might change their mind,” said Kiyana Katebi, founder of an IT consulting firm.Katebi helped develop the group’s first site, MyEU.uk , which shows people EU-funded projects in their neighbourhood based on their post code. The site had around 100,000 visitors in the first two days after its September launch.Another site, Finalsay.app , let British residents leave a voice message for their parliamentary representative with their “final say” against Brexit. Hey MP! lets people automatically send postcards to their lawmaker asking for another vote.It Costs EU reveals the portion of income tax going to the bloc while EU Worth It shows the amount of EU funding British districts receive, to counter claims Brits pay too much to the EU.Can I Move To Barcelona simply explains how Brits can still move to the Spanish city, or dozens of other EU destinations, under the bloc’s freedom of movement rules — a benefit that likely ends across the British border if Brexit happens.The group, while small, says they’ve have had an impact on sentiment but didn’t provide any numbers on site traffic or messages sent.“The point is to ask people the question: Do they really want this?” and then show them how Brexit will affect them, said Mike Butcher, Tech For U.K.’s co-founder.About 200-300 people have joined the group, Butcher said. They work on the projects on evenings and weekends and collaborate remotely.The group is using technology to counter what they see as misinformation surrounding Britain’s EU membership that may have contributed to the 2016 referendum vote result to leave.Since the referendum, Brexit opponents have raised concerns about the influence of Russian meddling and the role of social-media advertising using data harvested from Facebook.“One of the reasons that we lost in 2016 was that (the pro-Brexit camp’s) digital game was far superior to the people fighting to stay in. We’re playing catch-up,” said Eloise Todd, CEO of Best For Britain.On the other side of the argument, pro-Brexit groups flourish online, with names such as Get Britain Out, Stand Up 4 Brexit and Leavers of Britain using social media to promote their views.More than 1,500 U.K.-based tech executives signed Tech For U.K.’s open letter last year to Prime Minister May, warning that Brexit risks making it harder to hire tech talent and crimping funding from Europe. But for many volunteers, Brexit’s impact on the country transcends those concerns.At one of the group’s recent weekly evening meetups, in a tech company’s basement meeting room in Central London, the crowd of about 20 split into three groups.They ran through ideas and themes. Would Brexit make it harder for European musicians to play at Britain’s Glastonbury music festival? Could they build a site to get people in Ireland to write letters to relatives in Britain? Would microbreweries still be able to get imported hops?“We just need to think about various members of the public, what might tick their buttons,” startup founder James Tabor told his group. “This is about getting into the minds of the general public.”____James Brooks in London contributed to this report.____Follow Kelvin Chan at www.twitter.com/chanmanKelvin Chan, The Associated Press read more

Sudan UN refugee agency opens fourth safe camp inside neighbouring Chad

Some 367 refugees were transferred to a camp at Iridimi at the weekend, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesman Kris Janowski told reporters today in Geneva.Iridimi’s first arrivals mean almost 13,000 refugees have now been transferred to four camps – the others are living at camps in Touloum, Farchana and Kounoungo.The camps were set up by UNHCR and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) well away from the Chad-Sudan border, where an estimated 110,000 refugees have been staying since fleeing Sudan. Sudanese militias had been attacking the border shelters, prompting the UN to find safer sites.Mr. Janowski said a fifth camp, at Goz Amer, should start accepting refugees from the border zone soon. It will be the first camp within its region of eastern Chad, which is next to Darfur.UNHCR, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the NGO known as CARE and Chad’s national refugee agency distributed aid to 6,000 Sudanese refugees in the border town of Bahai over the weekend, he said.Many of the refugees there had already used up their savings and food supplies and had been relying on food donations from local Chadians and on doing small jobs in return for money to buy food, according to UNHCR.Fighting between the Sudanese Government, local militia and rebel groups, including the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA), since March last year has driven thousands of people from Darfur and internally displaced another 700,000 people in Sudan, which has a total of 3 million to 4 million displaced throughout the country largely as a result of its 20-year civil war. read more

Recordbreaking passenger movement at CJIA for first quarter of 2018

The first quarter of 2018 saw the highest ever recorded passenger movement through Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation (CJIAC).According to a release from the CJIAC, for the month of March 2018, 52,729 passengers were processed as compared to 43,733 in March 2017. Passenger movement for the period January to March 2018 recorded 142,781 persons being processed as compared to 126,340 for the same period in 2017.Minster of Public Infrastructure David Patterson, attributed these marked increases to “Government’s sound economic policies and its unwavering advocacy for an enabling environment for investors.”He added that other factors which contributed to this achievement can be associated with increased business interest in Oil and Gas, Agriculture and tourists coming in large numbers for the Easter Festivities, Bartica Regatta, Rupununi Rodeo and Investment Forums.The country’s main port of entry is currently being expanded to accommodate the additional traffic anticipated in the coming years.The US$150M project is moving apace and upon completion, with the inclusion of several state-of-the-art facilities and amenities, the airport’s capacity will be greatly enhanced and strengthened significantly impacting passengers’ experience.

US says civilian casualties in Mosul were an unintentional accident of war

Image: Felipe Dana/AP Mar 29th 2017, 10:21 AM http://jrnl.ie/3312491 THE US-LED anti-jihadist coalition has said it “probably” played a role in civilian casualties in west Mosul, as the UN and Amnesty International called for greater efforts to protect civilians.Hundreds of thousands of civilians are still inside west Mosul, caught up in deadly fighting between the so-called Islamic State (IS) group and Iraqi forces who are backed by coalition airstrikes in the battle to retake the area from the jihadists.West Mosul is both smaller and more densely populated than the city’s east, meaning that this stage of the battle poses a greater danger to civilians than those that came before.“We probably had a role in those casualties,” Lieutenant General Stephen Townsend, the commander of the US-led operation against IS, told reporters in a phone briefing from Baghdad, referring to civilians killed and wounded by aerial bombing in west Mosul.“If those innocents were killed, it was an unintentional accident of war,” he said.Townsend described the fighting in the narrow streets of Iraq’s second city as the “most significant urban combat” since World War II and “probably the toughest and most brutal close-quarters combat that I have experienced in my 35 years of service”.The coalition had previously said it carried out a strike on 17 March in an area of west Mosul in which civilian casualties were reported, and that it had opened an investigation.Iraq is also investigating civilian deaths in west Mosul, but has sought to place the blame on IS.UN rights office spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said yesterday that more than 300 civilians have been killed in west Mosul since 17 February.IS has targeted civilians and used them as human shields, while strikes by anti-IS forces have also left civilians dead.‘Urgent review of tactics’ UN human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein called on Iraqi and US-led coalition forces “to undertake an urgent review of tactics to ensure that the impact on civilians is reduced to an absolute minimum”.IS’s “strategy of using children, men and women to shield themselves from attack is cowardly and disgraceful. It breaches the most basic standards of human dignity and morality,” he said.Amnesty’s Donatella Rovera said field research in east Mosul — which was recaptured from IS in January — showed “an alarming pattern of US-led coalition air strikes which have destroyed whole houses with entire families inside”.“The high civilian toll suggests that coalition forces … have failed to take adequate precautions to prevent civilian deaths, in flagrant violation of international humanitarian law,” she said.In the east, the Iraqi forces adopted a strategy of encouraging civilians to stay at home, dropping leaflets into the city with safety instructions for residents.“The fact that Iraqi authorities repeatedly advised civilians to remain at home instead of fleeing the area, indicates that coalition forces should have known that these strikes were likely to result in a significant numbers of civilian casualties,” Rovera said.Amnesty quoted Waad Ahmad al-Tai, an east Mosul resident, as saying six members of his extended family — including his nine-year-old son and three-year-old daughter — were killed after they followed government advice not to flee the city.“We heard these instructions on the radio …  Also leaflets were dropped by planes. This is why we stayed in our homes,” he said.Jihadists deployed among civilians Amnesty said that, in many cases it investigated, east Mosul residents said IS fighters had been present in or near houses targeted in the strikes.In one case, five members of a family and their neighbour were killed in a raid on a house where IS fighters were hiding but the jihadists survived that attack, Amnesty quoted survivors as saying.That pattern has also been repeated in west Mosul, according to witnesses.Two witnesses who have now fled the city said that a building with around 170 people inside was destroyed in the Mosul al-Jadida area.One of them said that IS snipers had fired on Iraqi forces, after which an aircraft targeted them with a missile.Another man said that IS placed snipers atop a house where he was residing with more than 20 relatives.He was told that an air strike hit the house, an attack he survived because he was away at the time.More than 200,000 civilians have fled west Mosul since the battle for the area began, according to Iraqi authorities.- © AFP 2017Read: Trump’s climate plan labelled ‘a colossal mistake that defies science’PHOTOS: Priceless remains lie in ruins at Mosul museumlast_img read more

UE Plus de Bisphénol A pour fabriquer les biberons à partir de

first_imgUE : Plus de Bisphénol A pour fabriquer les biberons à partir de demainA partir de demain, l’utilisation du Bisphénol A sera interdite en Europe dans la fabrication des biberons. Cette interdiction est prévue par la directive 2011/8/UE de l’Union européenne qui a été adoptée fin janvier.Le Bisphénol A (BPA) est une substance largement utilisée dans les matières plastiques. Les biberons, notamment, sont composés de polycarbonates qui comportent du BPA. Or, chauffés, ces biberons peuvent laisser passer des molécules de cette substance dans le lait qu’ils contiennent. À lire aussiDanger du Bisphénol A : Y-aurait-il un lien tre la substance chimique et l’obésité infantile ? Si à l’heure actuelle la nocivité du BPA n’a pas été affirmée avec certitude, c’est par principe de précaution que l’Union Européenne a interdit dans une directive datant de janvier la mise sur le marché ainsi que l’importation dans l’UE de biberons fabriqués avec du BPA.Cette loi entrera en vigueur le 1er mars. Elle fait suite à l’interdiction prononcée par le gouvernement danois, en mars 2010, de l’utilisation de Bisphénol dans les produits destinés à contenir des aliments pour les enfants âgés de moins de trois ans. La France avait emboîté le pas du Danemark en prononçant la même interdiction, en ce qui concerne les biberons, en juillet 2010.Face à ces interdictions, la Commission a demandé à l’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments (EFSA) d’étudier la question. Les résultats de septembre 2010 concluaient à une nocivité considérée comme nulle en deçà de 0,05 mg/kg. Toutefois, l’EFSA reconnaît que les nourrissons pouvaient être menacés et incite à la prudence. Le 28 février 2011 à 16:00 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Coalition of Port South Bay officials to announce legal strategy to end

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter IMPERIAL BEACH (KUSI) — A coalition of port and South Bay officials Friday plan to announce the next step in their legal strategy to force federal action to stop the “almost continuous” flow of sewage from the Tijuana River into the U.S., they announced Thursday.The first step came in the fall when Chula Vista, Imperial Beach and the Port of San Diego were among the entities that filed an intent to sue the agency in charge of U.S.-Mexico water treaties over what they say is federal inaction regarding the tens of millions of gallons of sewage that has fouled South Bay communities.The announcement is expected to be an update regarding the legal action against the U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission.“There is nothing more important to me and my colleagues on the City Council that we can continue to surf, swim and play on our gorgeous beach that belongs to everyone in the state of California,” Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina said after the initial legal filing.Authorities on the U.S. side of the border are frequently forced to close beaches as far north as the Hotel del Coronado following storms when sewage is driven out of Baja and into American waters.The Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Border Field State Park are currently closed for swimming following rain earlier this week. County environmental health officials say that the access road to Friendship Park may even be contaminated with Mexican sewage.A particularly extreme example of the problem came last March after a wastewater collector in Tijuana collapsed and sewage was diverted into the Tijuana and Alamar rivers during repair work.The breakdown resulted in the flow of at least 28 million gallons of raw sewage flowed from Mexico to the Pacific Ocean, causing a widespread stench and elevated levels of E. coli bacteria in the Tijuana River Valley.

Fortnite season 10 challenges and where to find spray cans gas stations

first_img Share your voice Tags Post a comment Gaming One of the gas stations found on the island.  Epic Games Developer Epic Games changed how challenges work in Fortnite season 10, aka season X. Instead of weekly challenges, there are sets of Limited Timed Mission Objectives. Each set has a particular theme and is unlocked after a certain amount of time or when previous missions are completed. These objectives are available only to season 10 Battle Pass owners. Completing missions will unlock additional content and earn Battle Stars to reach tier 100 on the pass.Another big change in the new season is the inclusion of Prestige missions. Once a set of challenges are completed, players can choose to redo the tasks. Each mission will consist of a similar requirement, although at a higher difficulty. Completing missions will unlock additional content and earn Battle Stars to reach tier 100 on the pass.Spray & Pray missionsSpray and Paint challengesThe Spray & Pray challenges. Epic Games Deal 500 damage to opponents with an SMGAs in similar challenges, find a good SMG and let an opponent have it. Ideally, get up close, as it’ll count for another mission for the week. Spray a Fountain, a Junkyard Crane and a Vending MachineThe fountain is located in Mega Mall while the Junkyard Crane, as its name suggests, is in Junk Junction. Vending Machines, however, are all over the place, in random spots. They’re mainly found in named locations.Spray 3 different Gas StationsThere are eight gas stations on the island. They’re primarily located on the main road in Paradise Palms and near Pleasant Park. There’s also one in Salty Springs and Neo Tilted. Find 5 different spray cansThere are nine spray cans located on the island. They’re not easy to find, but they’ll be near a spray painting. Check the map on where to search below. fortnite spray cansA map of spray cans on the island. Epic Games Deal 3,000 damage to opponents’ structures with a MinigunThe Minigun is a big weapon that can decimate players in a second. Since it’s so powerful, it’s also not easy to find. Lucky players may have one drop in a chest, but if not, try to survive long enough to get a supply drop, where it’s far more likely to show up. Once you’ve found one, shoot structures left and right to complete this challenge. Eliminate 3 opponents with an SMG less than 15m awayLike the earlier challenge, find an SMG and get in close to deal fast damage to eliminate an opponent. Search 7 chests at TiltedTilted Town is the now frontier-themed version of Neo Tilted. There’s no building or harvesting, though some players have found a way around that rule. This mission will be tough, since so many players are visiting the location, making it difficult to find an unopened chest. Spray & Pray prestige missions2 eliminations with an SMG in a single matchAs in the regular missions, find an SMG and locate opponents to attack. SMGs work best at close range.Search 5 chests inside containers with windowsThis sounds like a strange challenge, because it is. The containers referred to are shipping containers. On the containers in question is graffiti that looks like windows. These are where you’ll want to search for this mission. Check for the containers at Pressure Plant, Dusty Depot and one in the snow northwest of Lucky Landing.  Spray 6 cars or trucks in different Named Locations As one might expect, cars are going to be found in named locations that have streets. There are plenty around, and they’re easy to spot. Visit 2 graffiti covered billboards in a single match The two billboards are located in the northwest part of Shifty Shafts and southwest of Salty Springs, off the main road. Start off at one location then run to the other. Deal opponents 500 damage with a MinigunRacking up 500 damage is easy with the Minigun. It’s finding one that’s the chore. As mentioned previously, you’ll have to get lucky with a chest or find a supply drop later in the game to find one. Eliminate 5 opponents with an SMG less than 5m away Once again, find an SMG and get right next to an opponent for this mission. Eliminate 5 opponents in Tilted with the Tilted Teknique outfitThe key to this mission is to have the Tilted Teknique skin. This is the reward for tier 23 on the Battle Pass. Once equipped, head to Tilted Town to score some eliminations. Shootout at Sundown challengesShootout at Sundown challengesThe Shootout at Sundown limited-time missions.  Epic Games These challenges will unlock over the course of the next seven days.

Gunman Kills 12 People At Country Music Bar In Thousand Oaks California

first_imgMark J. Terrill/APPeople comfort each other outside the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where a gunman opened fire and killed 12 people.Updated at 11:25 a.m. ET A gunman killed 12 people and injured several more at a country music bar in Ventura County, Calif., late Wednesday, police said. When the shooting started, the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks likely held hundreds of people, drawn by College Country Night.The dead include Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of law enforcement who died at a nearby hospital, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters early Thursday.After the shooting was reported about 11:20 p.m. local time, Helus entered the building along with a highway patrol officer and was shot multiple times.“He died a hero. He went in to save lives, to save other people,” Dean said. He also said the 54-year-old sergeant had been slated to retire next year.As the gunman approached the bar, “he shot a security guard outside, and went inside and continued to fire, and killed 11 people inside,” the sheriff told NPR.The victims who had been inside the club when the shooting started seemed to be from 19 to 25 years old, Dean said. Investigators are still working to identify them, and families have not yet been notified.The sheriff identified the suspected gunman as Ian David Long, 28, of nearby Newbury Park.The suspect used a Glock 21 .45-caliber pistol with an extended magazine, Dean said, adding that “we don’t know if he reloaded his weapon or not. He said Long purchased the gun legally.Investigators were in the process of getting search warrants for Long’s house and for the car that he drove to the club, Dean said in a news briefing after the sun had risen over the crime scene.When asked what the scene looks like inside the Borderline bar, Dean replied, “Like hell.”Some witnesses have said the gunman used smoke bombs inside the club; Dean said his office has heard those reports but has not yet confirmed them.The gunman was found in an office near the entrance to the club, the sheriff said, adding “We believe he shot himself” after an initial exchange of gunfire with law enforcement officers. Dean also said that the shooting inside the club stopped after Helus and the other officer intervened.When the shooting started, about six off-duty officers from various agencies were inside the club, Dean said. Amid the horrific scene, he added, those officers helped to save or protect civilians.“I’ve already talked to a parent that came up and said, ‘They stood in front of my daughter,’ ” Dean said. “So, it was amazing. It was amazing.”The sheriff said that Long was a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, and that earlier this year, deputies who were called to his house were concerned he may have been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.“We’ve had several contacts with Mr. Long over the years,” Dean said, “minor events such as a traffic collision; he was the victim of battery at a local bar in 2015.”“In April of this year, deputies were called to his house for a ‘subject disturbing’ [call]. They went to the house, they talked to him; he was somewhat irate — acting a little irrationally.”A crisis intervention team was called to the house, along with a mental health specialist, Dean said. After speaking with Long, they left the house without taking him into custody or otherwise intervening.Witnesses described the suspect as tall and dressed all in black, wearing a hood. A motive was not yet known, Dean said, and the FBI is assisting with the case.When police entered the bar, they found a “horrific scene,” Dean said.In addition to the dead, there is one other minor gunshot injury; an additional eight to 15 people were also injured inside the bar, Dean said, describing those cases as minor. Some of them, he said, left the premises on their own to go to area hospitals.When the shooting started, panicked students and other patrons took shelter where they could, scrambling to hide from the gunman. Many fled when and how they could — through windows, back doors, and fire escapes — or hid in bathrooms or the attic.“Unfortunately, our young people, or people at nightclubs, have learned that this may happen,” Sheriff Dean said. “And they think about that. Fortunately, it probably saved a lot of lives that they fled the scene so rapidly.”One witness told NPR’s Nate Rott that he and others were able to escape after they grabbed a bar stool and threw it through a back window.“I heard something go off — obviously, the gunshots,” witness Erica Sigman told NPR’s Kirk Siegler. “And I realized that it was not music very very quickly. And I heard everyone scream, ‘Get down!’ I heard people start saying, ‘Run.’ So I booked it to my car and with a group of people. … And hid behind my cars for a little bit. It stopped and then there was a second round that went off.”Another witness told ABC 7 that he saw a suspect throw smoke bombs into the front of the restaurant and shoot a security guard.“I was at the front door and I was talking to my stepdad. I just started hearing these big pops,” John Hedge told the station. “Pop, pop, pop. There was probably three or four, I hit the ground. I look up — the security guard is dead. Well, I don’t want to say he was dead, but he was shot. He was down. The gunman was throwing smoke grenades all over the place. I saw him point to the back of the cash register … and he just kept firing. I ran out the front door.”When sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene, they were “still hearing shots” inside, said Capt. Garo Kuredjian of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.“The initial report indicated that a man had opened fire with a semi-automatic gun,” the Ventura County Star reports, adding that “Officers on the scene indicated that approximately 30 shots had been fired and that victims would be at multiple locations as they fled.”Aerial footage from local news media showed a massive police response to the scene of the shooting, as multiple law enforcement agencies sent officers to help.Wednesday nights at the Borderline Bar & Grill are billed as Country College Night; Borderline’s website advertises dance lessons at 9:30 and 10:30, and its Facebook page shows people line dancing.The Borderline is popular with students from Pepperdine University, which says it has confirmed that “multiple” students were at the bar Wednesday night.The university is holding classes as normal on Thursday, it says in an emergency bulletin. It adds that students can “adjust their class schedules today” if needed.In addition to Pepperdine, other colleges including California State University, Channel Islands, and California Lutheran University, are located a short drive from the bar.CSUCI President Erika D. Beck said in a statement that at least five students from the school had been at the Borderline on Wednesday. All of them, she added, had made it out safely.Early Thursday, a family reunification center was set up down the highway from the Borderline, which the sheriff’s department says is staffed with chaplains and Red Cross workers.The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department says Helus’ body will be taken from the hospital to the medical examiner’s office in a procession scheduled for 10 a.m. local time Thursday.“He leaves behind a wife and son,” the agency said. “Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”Dean said Helus had been on the phone with his wife when the call about the shooting came in, quickly signing off with “I love you, talk to you later.”This is a breaking news story. As often happens in situations like these, some information reported early may turn out to be inaccurate. We’ll move quickly to correct the record and we’ll only point to the best information we have at the time.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Sharelast_img read more

State announces police security takeover of Solidaridad

first_imgState governor Carlos Joaquín González made the announcement Tuesday that they have made the decision to assume control of the Solidaridad / Playa del Carmen police force. During his brief message, he said the decision came due to the inability of authorities to work as a team. Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — In a three-minute press conference, the governor of Quintana Roo announced the state’s take-over of security for the municipality of Solidaridad. After the speech, the Secretary of Public Security of Quintana Roo, Jesús Alberto Capella Ibarra arrived at the municipal police headquarters of Solidaridad on Arco Vial to take control of the command and ensure police carry out their routines, which are now under the control of the state commissioner. During his message, Governor Carlos Joaquín González said “I have made the decision to assume the command of the Public Safety and Municipal Transit of Solidaridad. This measure comes into force as of today May 14, 2019 with the intention of restoring public order and ensuring the safety of people. “I reaffirm my government’s commitment to act rigorously within the law and to continue our frontal struggle against the impunity and corruption that are the source of insecurity and violence. Mayor of Playa del Carmen, Laura Beristain Navarrete “The centralized command and the National Guard are joined by a common focus which is the prevention of crime in Quintana Roo. This centralized approach is accented by measures already in place, aimed at fighting crime through the efficient use of technology such as cameras in colonies, principal streets and in security arches at the entrance and exit of roads along with police equipment, better salaries and the integration of the C5. “I reiterate that we will continue working in a coordinated manner with the federal government to restore tranquility to the families of Quintana Roo. “This is all based on a strategy that includes everyone to work in unity. “I am convinced that we will soon recover the peace and tranquility of our state, thank you very much.”center_img He also warned that those who fail to comply with the instructions of the Secretary of State Security, Alberto Capella, will assume the consequences. “This decision, in favor of the families of Quintana Roo, will surely generate resistance among those interested in maintaining the current state of affairs in order to maintain a personal image due to the inability to work as a team. Shortly after the governor’s speech, the mayor of Playa del Carmen (municipal president of Solidaridad), Laura Beristain Navarrete, said that the decree issued by the state government to take charge of the municipal police is a coup d’état against the autonomy of Solidaridad and an unconstitutional act. Jesús Alberto Capella Ibarra and Governor Carlos Joaquín González Members of the Mexican navy were also onsite at the Playa del Carmen headquarters to ensure a peaceful transition. “The preventive and transit police of the municipality of Solidaridad will comply with the orders and instructions transmitted to it through the secretary of public security of the state, since the beginning of this government, we have been clear that to fight crime we need to provide more and better opportunities to people. “This centralized command has had results in other municipalities in favor of the security of our people and has significantly reduced the levels of corruption and collusion of authorities with criminal groups. “We are not going to allow the interests of a few to usurp constitutional functions sowing terror and pretending to assume functions that do not correspond to them,” she said citing a violation of Article 115 of the Constitution which says that the command of the municipal preventive police belongs to the municipal president.

February 1, 2010 – According to a local Apple store attendant, the number of iPhone applications in existence has reached nearly 140,000. Knock off a few zeros and you’ll get a better idea of how may iPhone apps for radiology are available, and that number is growing fast. Last week Apple introduced the iPAD, which features a high-resolution 9.7-inch (measured diagonally) LED screen and runs the full range of iPhone applications with the benefit of a much larger, easier-to-manipulate dashboard and unprecedented true-to-life display. The device is extremely lightweight, offering physicians the truly portable, high-quality image accessibility and display that they need.With radiology applications already abundant for the iPhone, expect to see these migrate to the iPAD. You can start with the EXAM-PACS touch screen image viewing for the recently announced Apple iPad large-screen digital viewing and communications device. Based on the existing EXAM-PACS iPhone image viewing system by CoActiv Medical, the new iPad system will support bi-directional data communication between a PACS and any iPad using the new device’s built-in WiFi capabilities. This version of EXAM-PACS for iPad will also be fully compatible with the Apple iPad 3G model scheduled for release in April. The updated 3G model will allow connectivity for anywhere, anytime image viewing. This iPAD app is designed to enable secure DICOM query/retrieve functionality, and also allows files to be pushed directly to the device over WiFi and 3G connections. Once images arrive on the mobile device, they may be viewed using the full range of iPad’s Touch Screen capabilities, including scroll, pan, zoom and window and level and measurement functions. All manipulated and annotated images may be instantly saved locally on the device as JPG files and emailed or sent via messaging to anyone, anywhere in a matter of seconds. EXAM-PACS for iPad communication is enabled by a bi-directional integration with the OsiriX Mobile viewer, which will run on the iPad and requires no additional software installation.
