Egypt’s Morsi to be tried for ‘espionage’, Hamas ties

first_imgby Samer al-AtrushCAIRO- Egypt’s deposed president Mohamed Morsi and former aides will stand trial for “espionage” that aided a “terrorist” campaign involving the Palestinian militant Hamas and jihadist groups, state media reported on Wednesday. Morsi, an Islamist who the military toppled in July after a single year of turbulent rule, is already on trial over alleged involvement in the killings of opposition protesters. Prosecutors had been investigating his alleged links to Hamas during mass prison breaks in an early 2011 uprising against ousted strongman Hosni Mubarak, when Morsi and other Islamist prisoners escaped.He and 35 others, including former aides and leaders of his Muslim Brotherhood, now stand accused of “espionage for foreign organisations abroad to commit terrorist attacks in the country,” the official MENA news agency reported.The groups, according to the prosecution’s investigation, included Hamas and the militant Lebanese Hezbollah movement, MENA reported.Some of the defendants, including Essam Haddad, Morsi’s second in command when president, were also accused of betraying state secrets to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.The prosecution also alleged Muslim Brotherhood involvement in a surge in attacks on soldiers and police following Morsi’s overthrow, centred mostly in the restive Sinai peninsula.Some of the attacks, which have killed dozens of soldiers and policemen, have been claimed by Al-Qaeda inspired groups with no known links to the more moderate Muslim Brotherhood.But prosecutors say the attacks were carried out to “bring back the deposed president and to bring Egypt back into the Muslim Brotherhood’s grip.”last_img read more

UN honours Iraq envoy slain in 2003 Baghdad terror attack

28 June 2007The United Nations today honoured the late Sergio Vieira de Mello with the unveiling in Geneva of a bronze likeness of the 30-year Brazilian veteran of many United Nations peacekeeping operations who was killed during a terrorist attack while on assignment in Iraq. On 19 August 2003, Mr. Vieira de Mello – who was serving as the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Iraq at the time – and 21 other colleagues lost their lives when UN headquarters in the country was bombed.The bust, which is a gift from Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and created by world-famous Georgian artist and philanthropist Zurab Tseretelli, rests upon a base which carries the names of Mr. Vieira de Mello’s colleagues who lost their lives in the attack.Former Secretary-General Kofi Annan presided over the ceremony, which was also attended by Louise Arbour, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, survivors of the bombing, family members of victims, representatives from the UN as well as non-Governmental organizations (NGOs), and diplomats.Swiss authorities supplied the landscaping of the memorial in the grounds in front of the Palais Wilson.Mr. Vieira de Mello also served as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, a post to which he was appointed in 2002. Prior to that, he was the UN Transitional Administrator in East Timor after having briefly held the position of Special Representative for Kosovo. He had extensive Headquarters and field experience in humanitarian and peacekeeping operations, including in Bangladesh, Sudan, Cyprus, Mozambique, Peru and Lebanon.“Those who killed him have committed a crime, not only against the United Nations but against Iraq itself,” Mr. Annan said shortly after Mr. Vieira de Mello’s death.“The death of any colleague is hard to bear, but I can think of no one we could less afford to spare, or who would be more acutely missed throughout the UN system, than Sergio,” said the then-Secretary-General. “Throughout his career he has been an outstanding servant of humanity, dedicated to relieving the suffering of his fellow men and women, helping them to resolve their conflicts and rebuild their war-torn societies.” read more


Offshore oil regulators defy environment commissioners advice for Newfoundland

OTTAWA — Oil and gas regulators in Newfoundland have done exactly what the federal environment commissioner told them not to do.They have issued a call for bids to explore parts of the Gulf of St. Lawrence several months before a key environmental assessment ends.The commissioner, who audits government operations for their environmental performance, warned the Canada-Newfoundland Offshore Petroleum Board last year to make sure strategic environmental assessments wrapped up before offering up parcels of the land beneath the sea.That way, companies would be fully aware of the measures they would need to undertake in order to properly protect the environment while exploring and drilling in marine habitat.A spokesman for the board defends the decision to tap business interest early, says the deadline for bids is not until four months after the environmental assessment is published.He says that allows plenty of time for companies to incorporate proper plans to protect marine life. read more

Volvo Penta collaborates with Sandvik on engine for its latest underground truck

first_imgVolvo Penta has collaborated with global equipment manufacturer, Sandvik Mining & Construction, to develop an engine which is suitable for heavy-duty mining applications. The TAD1643VE-B, which was launched last month at Bauma, has now been unveiled as the new engine for the latest underground mining truck by Sandvik. The companies worked together after Sandvik turned to Volvo Penta for help in replacing existing 19-litre engines in its TH663 trucks.“We’ve worked with Volvo Penta on other projects and have a close relationship with them,” says Mark Ryan, Product Line Manager for trucks, loading and hauling at Sandvik’s mining division. “Their performance, both in terms of technology and customer service is exemplary, so it was a no-brainer to ask them to help us with this machine. We needed a high horse-power engine of the right size and class, which is robust and more cost effective to install and run than the previous engines.” He adds: “They are very open to supporting us and we appreciate that. Volvo Penta is very dynamic in pursuing new opportunities and different markets, such as mining.”The TAD1643VE-B offers a range of features, making it a compact, versatile and cost-effective off-road industrial powerhouse, which is the best in its emissions class. Features include:New water-cooled turbo-charger, making the engine more dynamic and suitable for mobile applicationsNew fuel injectors and more efficient combustion, for improved fuel consumption and lower operating costsIncreased torque and torque curve: due to the turbo-charger, extended torque curve allows for better performance at a wider range of rpm, making it more powerful, particularly at the lower end of rpmModern engine control unit (ECU) and same electrical interface as the latest Stage IV/Tier 4 final engine, to enable ease of installationRated power of 565 kW at 1,900 rpm: highest output per liter of displacement, making it the best 16-litre engine in its classSandvik’s new TH663 underground truck, incorporating the 16-litre Volvo Penta engine, has been tested extensively, and is now in operation in hard-rock metal ore mines in Australia. They will also be available in other international regions. “These are very harsh environments underground,” says Ryan. “The engines on our trucks need to withstand really heavy-duty cycles and continuously haul heavy loads up a steep ramp. This is a tough application, but we’ve noticed that with the better torque delivery of the Volvo Penta engine, our trucks can haul up the ramp faster now, compared to the previous 19-litre engines we used. It produces fewer emissions, also, which not only makes ventilation better for workers in the mines, but has an improved environmental footprint – so it’s a better option all-round.”Sandvik operates in both sales and rental markets, and total cost of ownership was a factor in deciding to install Volvo Penta engines in the trucks. “Capital and operating costs are both lower than with the previous engines,” says Ryan. “Fuel efficiency is better and as the Volvo engine is a newer and more superior design than the engines we used to have, downtime will be reduced and we anticipate that it will last longer overall. We want value for money as do our customers, and we’re pleased that this has been a collaboration with Volvo Penta rather than the usual customer-supplier relationship.”The TAD1643VE-B is compliant with US EPA’s Tier 2 Power Band E (which is equivalent to EU Stage II, regulation 96) and China’s NS III emissions regulations for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM). It shares common electrical and physical interfaces with Stage IIIA, Stage IV and Tier 4 Final engines. Naval Singh, Volvo Penta’s Global Segment Specialist in mining and construction, says: “This is a perfect example of the close co-operation between us and Sandvik. After talking to them, we did some homework and found that there is huge possibility with our technology to replace bigger volume engines for the versatile application market today. We are pleased to be able to create a powerful, compact and reliable engine for the mining industry.”last_img read more


Un fort séisme touche locéan Atlantique

Swimmer dies in Mission Bay

first_img KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A woman died in the water off Mission Bay, a lifeguard official said today.The incident happened at about 12:30 p.m. Saturday. Lifeguards said the 73-year-old woman, who was known to swim in Mission Bay almost weekly, appeared to not be swimming in a straight line like she usually does, according to Lt. Andy Lerum with San Diego Lifeguard Services.“Lifeguards swam out and brought her to shore and performed CPR,” Lerum said. “She had some sort of heart issue. The medics were working on her for quite some time.”She died before she could be taken to a hospital, he said.Lifeguards were kept busy Saturday elsewhere along San Diego County beaches, Lerum said. “We had a pretty busy day, but it was manageable. There were the usual number of rip currents, but they were pretty mild.”Crowds from Ocean Beach to Blacks Beach were estimated at around 100,000, he said. Lifeguards performed 12 rescues, which was pretty low for a Saturday, he said. Medical aid was given to 36 people and there were more than 6,000 preventive acts performed, which include separating swimmers and surfers, moving swimmers away from rip currents, and issuing alcohol citations.

Google workers are holding a sitin May 1 to protest alleged retaliation

first_img Share your voice 10 Tech Industry Google declined to comment on the sit-in, but pointed to a previous statement. “We prohibit retaliation in the workplace and publicly share our very clear policy,” the spokeswoman said. “To make sure that no complaint raised goes unheard at Google, we give employees multiple channels to report concerns, including anonymously, and investigate all allegations of retaliation.”In Silicon Valley, Google workers have become the poster children for protest in the tech industry. In the past, they’ve rebelled against the company’s work in China, military contracts, and treatment of contract workers. The date of the sit-in is also May Day, an international day honoring workers.The announcement comes after Google employees last week held a town hall meeting focused on the alleged retaliation. Two walkout organizers in particular said they’ve been unfairly targeted by the company. One organizer, Meredith Whittaker, who leads Google’s Open Research program, said earlier this week that she was asked to choose between Google and her outside work. Whittaker co-founded New York University’s AI Now Institute, a research center that examines the societal effects of artificial intelligence. Whittaker said Google asked her to give up that work after the company disbanded its own AI ethics board last month amid controversy over one of its members.Claire Stapleton, a marketing manager at Google-owned YouTube, said she was told after the walkout she’d be demoted and lose half of her reports. She said she was also told to go on medical leave even though she wasn’t sick. Google only walked back her demotion after she hired a lawyer, Stapleton said.At the meeting, organizers at the company gathered hundreds of stories from workers who said they’ve faced retaliation from Google for speaking out against workplace misconduct.  On Monday, walkout organizers shared some of those stories. One worker said they reported their tech lead to their manager for sexual harassment, but the manager said the person was “overreacting.” “No additional actions were taken,” that person said. “They both still work at Google.”After the town hall meeting last week, which was streamed in company offices all over the world, Google employees said there was more action coming. “The support was overwhelming,” one employee who attended told CNET. “It looks like the company’s misguided gamble to cut off the ‘head’ of the organizing against harassment, discrimination and unethical decision-making won’t work.” From being told to go on sick leave when you’re not sick, to having your reports taken away, we’re sick of retaliation. Six months ago, we walked out. This time, we’re sitting in. 11am tomorrow. #NotOkGoogle #GoogleWalkout pic.twitter.com/GCq0x1O8cZ— Google Walkout For Real Change (@GoogleWalkout) April 30, 2019 Comments Tags Google Alphabet Inc.

WATCH Steph Curry got posterized with a vicious quarterending dunk against the

first_img Advertisement The Warriors have been rolling since the addition of Kevin Durant, but Steph Curry hasn’t been the dominant offensive force he was last season when he re-wrote the NBA record books on his way to winning the MVP.To his credit, Curry has sacrificed some of his individual stats in the better interest of the team. Last night during the Warriors 107-95 win over the Heat, he tried to make his mark on the defensive end, and he almost lost his life for it.With time winding down in the first quarter, Miami guard James Johnson dribbled the length of the court for the last shot. As he took the ball to the hole, he encountered Curry, who was waiting under the basket to take a charge.Curry didn’t draw the charge, instead he got put on a poster by Johnson, who went almost completely horizontal for the vicious, outstretched throwdown. People like to say Curry’s skills are like a video game.

Snapchats Evan Spiegel Has Eyes for Taylor Swifts Record Label

first_img Register Now » 3 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Like, no way. A boy Taylor Swift used to date wants to buy her record label. And that boy just happens to be Evan Spiegel co-founder and CEO of Snapchat.The 24-year-old billionaire and former Kappa Sigma overachiever, who recently inked a deal with Warner Music to bring music videos to Snapchat, has eyes for Big Machine Records, reports the New York Post. Coincidentally — but likely not — it’s the record label Swift, one year Spiegel’s senior, is signed to.Related: Taylor Swift’s Latest Trademark Filings Reveal a Shrewd Business StrategyTo snag the Nashville-based company, Snapchat would have to cough up some serious cash and possibly even outbid Apple. The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech titan is reportedly making moves to acquire the Nashville-based label for a steep $250 million, according to the music industry publication Hits Daily Double, though an iTunes spokesperson denied the report.Big Machine Records’ owner Scott Borchetta, 52, discovered Swift when she was 14 and then signed the Grammy Award-winning country-pop crossover star as his startup label’s first act. With his label’s distribution deal with Vivendi’s Universal Music Group set to expire soon, Borchetta is rumored to be putting Big Machine Records on the block for $350 million.  Related: Oh, Snap — Snapcat’s Evan Spiegel ‘Mortified’ by Vulgar Frat EmailsWith Snapchat recently amping up its streaming music and entertainment content, Spiegel’s rumored eyes for his ex’s record label comes as no surprise and could prove to be a smart move. Acquiring Big Machine Records would likely bolster the ephemeral app’s fledgling music video library, which already includes licks from Shakira, Jack Ü and Cash Cash — all of whom would pale in the sparkly shadow of T-Swizzle, if you ask us.If Snapchat does snap up the hot label — who knows? — maybe it would bring Spiegel and Swift back together again. The two reportedly dated for a hot minute after hitting it off back in December 2013, but, like so many of Swift’s suitors, Spiegel didn’t work out. “In the end, Taylor just couldn’t deal with the fact that she wasn’t a priority in his life,” a source told OK magazine.

After injuries to both Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett, Jones had the first start of his career in the Big Ten Championship game against Wisconsin and thrived.He was 12-of-17 in the Buckeyes’ 59-0 win for 257 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.Jones followed that up by leading Ohio State to a national championship. In the semifinal and final combined, Jones threw for 485 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, showing off stellar arm strength.There was talk of Jones possibly being a first-round pick, but he came back to school for the 2015 season.He struggled to pull away from his co-starter Barrett, finishing the season with 1,460 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He threw less than ten passes in six of Ohio State’s 13 games.The Cardinals have been down this road before.

CY needs to stay alive says Omirou

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouTHE national carrier must remain alive, socialist EDEK leader and House president Yiannakis Omirou said yesterday after a meeting with Cyprus Airways (CY) chairman Tony Antoniou.The visit to EDEK’s headquarters fell under the company’s decision to inform all political parties of the company’s current situation.“EDEK traditionally supports the need of a Cypriot carrier and will make every effort to support Cyprus Airways’ return to viability,” Omirou said, adding that the government needs to clarify whether it is actively seeking a strategic investor to help save the troubled airline.“It’s going to take tremendous effort to save Cyprus Airways, and finding a strategic investor is going to be critical – otherwise we will have a slow death in our hands,” he said.But Omirou was less supportive when it came to the controversy surrounding the company’s sole remaining Heathrow slot being sold to American Airlines.“Though we heard some explanations, the party is still concerned about this issue,” Omirou said. “A policy of liquidating the company’s assets may weaken the prospect of strategic investors or other funds being interested.”Antoniou agreed with Omirou’s call for the airline to remain in operation, and defended the decision to sell the Heathrow slot.“Over the past year we have applied the strategic plan submitted to the European Commission, which we will be called to document to the Commission soon,” he said. “The conversion of assets, like time slots, to cash will strengthen the company’s viability and should be appreciated by the Commission.”He and the board, Antoniou said, have been mandated by President Anastasiades to keep the carrier alive, and will continue to work towards this goal under very difficult circumstances.Denying charges of trying to wind it down quietly, Antoniou said that the company’s viability has been secured for most of 2015 through the sale of the Heathrow time slot.“This proves that employees will continue will be employed and the flight schedule will continue,” he said.Commenting on Omirou’s reference to possible prosecutions with regard to misappropriating public funds by previous administrations, Antoniou said that over the past year the company has neither asked, nor received “a single euro” from the state and the Cypriot taxpayer.“The company has raised the issue of mismanagement or possible misappropriation as a priority and the Finance Minister has been forwarded a number of cases to look into,” Antoniou said. “If asked for further information, we will resume investigations.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Contact us at editors@timecomRepublican presidential candidate Donald Trump continued his effort to woo the oil and gas industry in a speech Thursday with a promise to slash regulations and cut taxes The speech delivered before the Shale Insight conference in Pittsburgh comes as Trump tries to shore up support in the oil and gas industry Working-class employees in that sector located in places like Pennsylvania and Ohio are essential pieces of a Trump victory in November Trump has promised the upper management of energy companies essentially everything they could want He said Thursday that he would repeal a slew of regulations including the Clean Power Plan Obama’s Climate Action Plan the ban on new coal mining leases on federal land and other regulations (Notably Trump did not mention the Paris Agreement which will likely take effect this year making it difficult for him to scuttle it) “It will be a future of conservation prosperity and great success for all the people in this room and all the people you employ” he said Thursday Some energy executives have supported Trump enthusiastically including businessman Harold Hamm who is thought to be Trump’s chief advisor on energy matters But for a Republican the lack of widespread support has been visible A recent Wall Street Journal report found that oil and gas employees have donated significantly more to Hillary Clinton than Trump That’s a remarkable turnaround after years of staunch support for Republicans in the industry There are a number of reasons why they may remain skeptical of Trump’s promises For one he has

industry He backtracked but the damage was done Trump’s plan at time also appears removed from certain basic industry realities He has promised to revitalize the coal industry while also pushing for more oil and natural gas drilling But achieving both of those ends could prove difficult given that cheap natural gas is precisely what has led to a decline in coal in the first place Presumably more natural gas drilling would only reduce its price making it even more competitive with coal More clear in Trump’s comments on energy is what he opposes: government support for renewable energy and measures to protect the environment “My environmental agenda will be guided with true specialists in conservation” he said Thursday “not those with radical political agendas that are putting our country behind the eight ball” Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecom 2015.
