Niagara Regional Police looking into the alleged confrontation of a female jogger on Brock campus last Oct. 1 say the claim was unfounded and have closed the investigation.Many were shocked last fall when a woman told Campus Security that she escaped unharmed after a male confronted her on a Friday afternoon as she ran along an isolated stretch of Hydro Road, behind Village Residences.At the time, University officials and the NRP issued an alert and advised people to take extra precautions for their safety.NRP have concluded a lengthy investigation without laying any charges, saying the initial report caused unwarranted concern.

While covering a range issues, most strongly the need to end the carnage in Syria, fight terrorism and protect human rights around the world, particularly those of women and girls, the officials noted trade as an important component of sustainable development, which has been named as the priority for the 68th General Assembly session that recently opened.“A strong business sector, open trading rules and liberal foreign investment policies can foster economic growth and, with this, opportunities to achieve prosperity and security,” said Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, whose Government came into power just weeks ago.“We will support responsible economic governance and open trading systems that support export oriented economies,” Ms. Bishop said, citing her county’s long experience with economic liberalization, as well as the huge recent growth of the middle class in neighbouring Southeast Asia.“Beyond 2015, we must prioritise sustainable economic growth in the global development framework,” she added.Earlier today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, meeting with Ms. Bishop, discussed development in Syria and Egypt as well as Pacific issues and thanked Australia for its commitment to global peace and security, welcoming its recent assumption of the presidency of the Security Council. Franciscus Cornelius Gerardus Maria Timmermans, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. UN Photo/Paulo FilgueirasAlso speaking at the General Assembly today, Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans, of the Netherlands, said that along with more trade, the “key words” for the post-2015 agenda are better aid and stronger, unified policy coherence for sustainable development.“The post-2015 agenda will benefit from a single, unified framework: we cannot talk about the plight of the world’s poorest people in isolation from the environmental problems endangering life on the planet,” Mr. Timmermans stressed.A coherent, sustainable agenda was to strengthen the international legal order, he added, with a focus on human rights. Speaking extensively on existing international legal mechanisms, some of which are hosted by his country, as well as on the situation in Syria, he supported the proposal that permanent members of the Security Council refrain from using their vetoes to stop mass atrocities. Jean Asselborn, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs for Luxembourg. UN Photo/Ryan BrownThe Deputy Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Jean Asselborn, agreed that the post-2015 objectives for sustainable development must be integrated in a single and coherent framework that include all aspects of economic, governance, security and environmental concerns. “We cannot ignore the devastating effects of conflicts and violence on development,” he said, describing the destruction wrought in Syria and other situations.Mr. Asselborn noted, that as a current, non-permanent member of the Security Council, Luxembourg had been working with September Council President Australia to support the demands of humanitarian actors in Syria. “We must also talk – and more loudly so – about governance which is conducive to development, about institutions which guarantee the rule of law, about freedom of expression, about transparent and accountable governments. We must talk about justice, about the fight against impunity, about respect for international law.”The General Assembly’s general debate continues at UN Headquarters through 1 October. read more

Team from Paris suburb has won the eight national Championship, the last time in 2007. In the last couple of seasons, Ivry’s results aren’t on level of the team history. With 10th place in season 2012/2013 nobody can’t be satisfied:– Our goal is to finish between 6th and 8th place next season – says Ivry’s coach Pascal Leandri. Higher ambitions are based on signing of three players with international background. Pablo Simonet (Cuenca), Novica Rudovic (Sporting Lisbon) and Diego Humet (HCM Constanta) will give more international look and energy to the French team. The first star Diego Simonet left the team and signed contract with Montpellier and with him is missed a chance to see three brothers in one team – Diego, Sebastian and the youngest one, Pablo.As his older brother Diego, Pablo Simonet is playmaker. He led Argentina Junior team at WCH 2013 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where they played at TOP 16.Ivry starts official season with two home matches against Nantes and Aix. The form will built in Macedonia in the middle of August and afterwards at traditional Marrane tournament.PHOTO: IVRY WEBSITE read more

first_imgA DEAD MALE wolf, probably shot by hunters, was found 31 January in Coole, a town 160 kilometres east of the French capital. Since May, wolves have attacked flocks of sheep 29 times in a cluster of villages about 180 kilometres southeast of Paris.“That’s just a few days’ walk for a wolf,” said Maxime Zucca, a researcher at Natureparif, a government-funded body that studies wildlife in Ile-de-France, the region surrounding the capital. “We can’t predict if or when they’ll arrive in the Paris area, but it’s something we have to be prepared for.”While wolves don’t pose an immediate danger to the city’s residents, they have been spreading out north and west in France since crossing over from Italy in 1992, and everywhere they’ve led to clashes between farmers who say their flocks are at risk and environmentalists who welcome the return of the mythical predators.Farmers, supported by some members of parliament, want France to pull out of accords banning the hunting of protected raiders such as wolves, lynx and bears.“Wolves are fine in the Alps, in Siberia, in Yellowstone but they are incompatible with human farming,” Nicolas Dhuicq, a lawmaker who has entered a bill allowing wolf hunting, said in an interview last week as he and farmers in the Aube region, southeast of Paris, met at a local farm to discuss how to raise awareness about the challenges they face from wolves.Until their return in the 1990s, the last wolves in France were killed in the southwest in the 1920s. They have been extinct in the Paris region since the middle of the 19th century.Farmers’ WoesFrance has a wolf population now of between 250 and 300, and their numbers are growing, according to the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota. That compares with 1,000 in Italy, as many as 2,000 in Spain, and about 50 in Germany.Wolves killed 6,666 farm animals, mostly sheep, across France in 2012, up from 5,362 in 2011 and 4,691 in in 2010, according to the Ministry of the Environment. About half of those attacks were in the southern Alps, where Italian wolves first appeared in France after a hiatus of more than 60 years.The number of mainland France’s 94 departments that have reported sheep killed by wolves rose to 16 in 2012 – the latest figures available – from 14 in 2011 and 11 in 2010.Farmers say the statistics on the attacks underestimate the scale of the problem because wounded sheep often die later and pregnant females frequently miscarry because of the stress.Jean-Baptiste Scherrer, a 41-year-old farmer with 12 parcels of land spread around the village of Bar-sur-Aube, southeast of Paris, said he got a call at dawn on May 22 from workers at neighboring vineyards who’d seen his sheep acting strangely and what seemed like a dog running away. He found two dead and nine wounded sheep.Champagne Vineyards(AP Photo/Matthias Rietschel)Another attack a week later killed five of his sheep, and forest rangers confirmed both were wolf attacks. After that, he kept his 200 ewes indoors for the rest of the summer, feeding them grain and hay instead of letting them graze. On his iPhone, he has photos of a dozen stillborn lambs he said resulted from miscarriages in the following weeks.The attack on Scherrer’s farm was the first in the Aube department. There have been 28 since, killing 88 sheep and wounding 111, according to the local government.“We had no idea there were wolves in this area,” Scherrer said.We just want the right to defend ourselves.The closest known pack was in the Vosges mountain range, 200 kilometers southeast. The rolling hills of the Aube, with their open farmland, Champagne vineyards and small parcels of forest didn’t used to be wolf country.During the 2012/13 winter, 14 departments had established wolf packs, according to the ONCFS, the government bureau that overseas wildlife and hunting.Entering ParisThe wolves in the Aube department probably were young animals from a pack in the Vosges looking for new territory, said Eric Marboutin, head of the body’s large-predators project.“We know there were births last winter in the Vosges, so it’s possible some young pack members have been forced to leave and head out on their own,” Marboutin said.Ile-de-France, the region that includes Paris and seven surrounding departments, is an ideal environment for wolves in spite of its 12 million inhabitants, said Natureparif’s Zucca.Forests make up 24 percent of its area, slightly less than the national average of 29 percent, and most are well stocked with deer and wild boar. And the local farms mostly grow grain rather than raise livestock.Cases of wolves attacking people are almost non-existent, he said. For the moment public opinion backs wolves.Rightful PlaceIn an October poll by Ifop for OneVoice, an animal rights group, 76 per cent agreed with the statement “the wolf has its place in French nature”. The poll questioned 1,000 people with a 1.8 per cent margin of error.Currently, farmers can shoot a boar that eats their crops, but wolves are protected by the Berne Convention, which in 1979 established Europe’s large predators as protected species.There were no wolves in France then, and just a few dozen in the mountains of central Italy. The Apennines were returning to a natural state as farmers abandoned the rocky earthquake- prone soils. Also, with Italian hunters releasing game into the wild, the new laws meant wolves had a safe and forested highway all the way to Alps, with lunch served along the way.Wolves are now present in every region of mainland Italy and crossed into Switzerland in 1996. Ten years after their 1992 appearance in France they’ve established themselves throughout the Alps, and by 2011 there was a pack in the Vosges, France’s most northern mountain range.Romantic ImageThere’s no permanent presence of wolves in the Jura mountains between the Alps and the Vosges, showing the unpredictability of their expansion, said the ONCFS’s Marboutin.In 2012 there were the first attacks on sheep in the plains of northeast France. The killings have increased since.Still, Dhuicq said his bill is unlikely to pass.“The majority of MPs are from urban areas, and like urban populations they have a romantic image of wolves,” he says.Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll told parliament on 20 January that he’s against breaking the Berne Convention, though he recognized wolves “are not a minor issue” for farmers.Farmers receive an average of about €300 from the government for each sheep lost to wolves, but Gerard Guery, a 58-year-old farmer in Chaource in the Aube department, said he’d prefer not to have to take the money.Hunters reported seeing three wolves 12 kilometres from his farm, he said. He’s built a two-metre-high barbed wire fence around his 600 sheep, breaking with a local tradition of leaving sheep outdoors and moving them around parcels of farmland.“City people dream about wolves and the countryside, but they don’t realize how much of the countryside is the work of farmers and farming practices,” said Dhuicq. “All that is put at risk by wolves.”© BloombergRead: He’s walking 1400km from Rome to Paris but this €4.9bn rogue trader will be jailedlast_img read more

first_img 14,695 Views Couple settle with council out-of-court after ‘appalling story’ of flooded home The couple claimed there were no problems before the Council laid a culvert near their home in 2007. A COUPLE WHO sued Laois Co Council over flood damage to their home have settled their High Court action against the local authority.Chris Mahon and his wife Shelia had brought proceedings arising out of flood damage to their family home at Clonaheen, Mountmellick, Co Laois that occurred in August 2008 and in November 2014.The Mahons claimed the council were negligent in the matter in which they allowed works to be carried out on a culvert, located underneath the road beside their home. These works they claimed resulted in the flooding of their property.The council denied the claims.Following talks between the parties today, John Hayden Bl for the Mahons told Justice Paul McDermott that the proceedings had been compromised and could be struck out.Counsel said it had been agreed that the council will carry out flood relief works in the area near the Mahon’s home within 12 weeks.No other details of the settlement were given in open court. Michael Counihan SC for the Council said the alleviation works will be done by the council on a “voluntary” basis.Justice McDermott welcomed the settlement, particularly that steps are to be taken to prevent another flood at the Mahon’s home. The Judge had described Mahon’s account of the floods as “an appalling story.”Giving evidence on the opening day of the action, Mahon had described how he had been left “destroyed” after the family’s house and property was devastated by the two floods.The Mahon’s claimed the flooding was caused after a new culvert was laid by the Council in 2007. They claimed they never had any problems with flooding before those works were done. An example of a culvert – a tunnel which allows water to flow through or underground. Source: Shutterstock/Pi-LensIn their action the Mahon’s claimed the council were negligent in the manner in which those works were carried out. They claimed part of the culvert, installed so there would a continuous flow of water in a stream near their home, collapsed and became backed up.This resulted in the stream overflowing and their home and property was twice extensively damaged by water flowing across their yard, driveway and into their home.The culvert they alleged was constructed in a defective manner, and that the council failed to take any remedial steps to repair the defects. They sought damages and an order requiring the council to carry out works to prevent further flooding.The council claimed the flooding was caused by intense rainfall of record proportions and not by any problem with the culvert.It also alleged the Mahon’s contributed to the flooding on grounds including that when they constructed a new entrance to their property and removed a clay embankment that had protected the property from flooding.Read: ‘It absolutely destroyed me’: Man sues Laois County Council after house floods twice Wednesday 8 Feb 2017, 10:28 PM Feb 8th 2017, 10:28 PM 5 Comments Image: Shutterstock/Yorkman center_img By Aodhan O Faolain Share12 Tweet Email1 Mahon said he put sandbags around his home, but the water kept rising.

first_imgSpending by tourists in Greece surged in June, central bank data showed this week, confirming forecasts that a record summer season could give the debt-laden country a welcome injection of foreign cash. With domestic spending, investment and industrial production all in an austerity-driven slump, spending by foreign visitors is becoming the only growth driver for Greece’s economy, which is expected to shrink 4.2 per cent this year. Tourism receipts, the country’s biggest foreign-currency driver, rose 21 per cent year-on-year to 1.59 billion euros in June, the first month of Greece’s busy summer holiday season. That brings total tourism receipts in the first half of the year to 3.32 billion euros, Bank of Greece figures showed, up 18 per cent compared with the same period last year, when fears of a Greek eurozone exit kept tourists away. The local tourism industry is currently forecasting a 10 per cent rise in tourism receipts for the full year to 11 billion euros from a record 17 million visitors. Hoteliers, restaurant owners and tourism businesses have slashed prices and upgraded services to weather the crisis and lure more visitors. As a result of surging tourism receipts, Greece’s current account surplus widened in June to 663 million euros ($884 million) from 73.1 million euros in the same month last year, the Bank of Greece said.

first_img Summer is coming, and with it comes the seventh season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. After a teaser trailer featuring a few main characters walking purposefully down hallways and sitting in chairs, we finally have a full trailer that gives us a little bit more. We have armies gathering on all sides to attack Kings Landing and make a play for the Iron Throne. We have Cersei Lannister standing on a giant map. We have knights fighting, Littlefinger being creepy, a zombified hand, dragons and of course, a hint of sex. This is Game of Thrones after all.You can tell the story is drawing to a close. The stakes are higher than ever, all the different factions are gearing up for battle, and there’s a hint of an unseen outside threat. We’re entering the second to last season, and these final two will each be half as long as the previous six. That means we’re only 13 hours away from the end of this version of the story. (Remember, the books could still go off in a completely different direction.) The show is about to start wrapping things up.I love the line “it doesn’t matter whose skeleton sits on the iron throne.” That tells us a lot about what to expect from season seven. The White Walkers are drawing near, and most of Westeros still doesn’t believe they exist. We also see a glimpse of a necrotic arm, which could be Jorah Mormont’s if his greyscale has gotten that bad. Could that shot mean that either greyscale or the grey plague play a larger role in the upcoming season? Adding a pandemic to a world war would complicate things in an interesting way. Either way, there will almost certainly be multiple players who put their thirst for power above dealing with the impending threat. And they’ll probably pay the price for it. It’s entirely possible we may see a literal skeleton on the Iron Throne.Aidan Gillen, Sophie Turner. (Credit: Helen Sloan/HBO)Those excited for the upcoming season should maybe hope AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson doesn’t get his way. In related Game of Thrones news, Stephenson had some truly terrible ideas for the future of the series, according to Variety. Basically, it boils down to, “you know that thing you like? What if we made it smaller and gave you less of it?”Stephenson was speaking about the proposed merger of AT&T with Time Warner, which would give him control of HBO, among other properties. Speaking at J.P. Morgan’s Global Technology, Media, and Telecom Conference, he spoke about making HBO CEO Richard Plepler panic. “Think about things like Game of Thrones. In a mobile environment, a 60-minute episode might not be the best experience. Maybe you want a 20-minute episode.”He seriously proposed chopping 40 minutes off of Game of Thrones. Granted, some episodes could do with a bit more editing, but 40 minutes? How would they even make sense? That’s a lot of story to just throw in the garbage. Unless he’s proposing chopping each episode into thirds, which would create its own pacing problems. He has a point that watching a 60-minute episode on the phone isn’t ideal. But hey, neither is watching a massive medieval battle on a five-inch screen. That’s why we don’t watch Game of Thrones on phones if we can help it. It’s why we’ve collectively spent billions of dollars on giant TVs and set-top boxes. You’re not making the mobile experience better; you’re making Game of Thrones worse.Stephenson says he wants to be able “to curate Time Warner content uniquely for a mobile environment.” How about don’t? Because your first example is already the worst idea. He did take care to mention that he had no intentions of making Game of Thrones available only for AT&T customers. Because you know, that would be illegal. Gotta say though, it’s a little weird that you even brought it up. Like, we know you at least thought about it now.AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner is currently pending approval by the U.S. Department of Justice. Game of Thrones will air on HBO in its full 60-minutes-per-episode form on July 16, 2017.

first_img Sci-Tech 13 Photos Share your voice Are SpaceX Starlink satellites ruining the night sky? Tags Originally published May 27 at 11:07  p.m. PT.Update May 28 at 5:39 a.m. PT:  Adds comments from Alice Gorman.Update May 28 at 10:33 p.m. PT: Additional Gorman comments on SpaceX burn-up. Comments Now playing: Watch this: Indeed, Starlink would triple the number of satellites orbiting the Earth. If thousands of satellites are sent into orbit, our view of space changes. Will we find ourselves in a position where it’s impossible to investigate the cosmos from the ground?The quick answer: not forever, no. SpaceX designed the Starlink satellites to fall back to the Earth after about five years of service.. “The satellites are meant to put themselves in a re-entry orbit at the end of their mission life, and remove themselves from the debris population by burning up,” says Gorman.But the long answer is: potentially. Astronomers already wrangle with the problems posed by space robots and satellites circling the Earth whenever they turn their ground-based telescopes toward the stars. Bright, reflective surfaces pose a problem because they obstruct our view of the universe.More satellites equals cloudier vision, and Starlink plans to launch more satellites than ever.When the sun is reflecting off the satellites’ solar panels, astronomers will have to account for the appearance of the satellites in their images. SpaceX was relatively mum about the design of the satellites leading up to launch, so it’s come as a bit of a surprise to some astronomers just how bright they are. However, the satellites will position their solar panels as they establish themselves in orbit, which should reduce their brightness.Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, perhaps summed it up best in a tweet, saying the satellites are “brighter than we had expected and still a problem, but somewhat less of a sky-is-on-fire problem.” center_img 2:57 So the good news: it seems that once the Starlink sats point their solar panels at the Sun properly they are significantly fainter (more like mag 5 than mag 2). That is still brighter than we had expected and still a problem, but somewhat less of a sky-is-on-fire problem.— Jonathan McDowell (@planet4589) May 26, 2019 Meet the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket “Somewhat less of a sky-is-on-fire problem” sounds slightly reassuring, at least. But there do seem to be clear issues for the astronomy community..Elon Musk, SpaceX CEO, jumped to the defense of his satellite system and noted on Twitter how “potentially helping billions of economically disadvantaged people is the greater good,” while making it clear that SpaceX plans to limit Starlink’s effects on astronomy. “We care a great deal about science,” Musk tweeted. He said he’s sent a note to the Starlink team to reduce albedo — that is, the amount of light the satellites reflect.In addition, after a user suggested placing space telescopes using Starlink chassis into orbit to appease the astronomers, Musk said he “would love to do exactly that.” That might ease concerns, but will it slow our quickening colonization of Earth’s orbit? Unlikely.”Space agencies and organizations have been cluttering the sky for decades and taking a very lax attitude to the long-term consequences,” said Gorman.With a number of satellite constellations on the way, it will be critical for regulatory bodies and satellite providers to adequately manage the space debris and satellite problem, lest all of our space robots collide and lock us on Earth forever (yes, that’s a faint but possible catastrophic scenario) 4 Toot toot! Marco Langbroek/GIF by Nicole Archer/CNET Those lights aren’t an intelligent extraterrestrial army moving in to take over planet Earth — they’re just SpaceX’s Starlink satellites, designed to provide broadband services across the globe.The first batch of satellites were launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, and deployed to orbit by a Falcon 9 rocket on May 23. Each contains a single solar array, which both captures and bounces sunlight off the satellites and, as a result, can sometimes be seen from Earth. On May 25, as the drifting luminescent army of satellites zoomed overhead, Dutch satellite tracker Marco Langbroek captured their marching, posting a stunning video to Vimeo.In time, the satellites will drift apart and head to specific orbits so that satellite internet coverage can be beamed to every corner of the globe.However, as the unusual display in the night sky quickly gathered steam across social media, some astronomers began to point out the potential problems the satellite system may pose for astronomy. At present, only 60 satellites are moving into their orbit, but eventually that number will reach 12,000, and a megaconstellation will encircle the Earth. Practically overnight, our view of the sky has changed.”We’ve become used to change in space activities as slow and incremental, and suddenly, it’s fast and speeding up,” said Alice Gorman, space archeologist at Flinders University, Australia. “By its very visibility, Starlink has opened up some big questions: who gets to use Earth orbit and what for?” SpaceXlast_img read more

first_imgIndia, which imports about 80 percent of its crude oil requirements and has benefited from falling prices in the past two years, will be keenly watching the November 30 meeting of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) countries in Vienna. A planned meeting between OPEC and non-OPEC on Monday that was cancelled off due to Saudi Arabia’s insistence on a consensus within the 14-nation cartel, dampened hopes of a price rise and spooked stock markets.On Sunday, Iranian official Mehr News had accused the world’s largest crude oil producer (Saudi Arabia) of playing spoilsport by deciding to stay away from the Monday meeting between OPEC and non-OPEC members, saying a consensus among OPEC producers on output was a pre-requisite to implementable decisions.”Accordingly Saudi Arabia, in an official letter to OPEC, has announced that it will not take part at the lower-tier talks on Nov. 28 in Vienna ahead of the OPEC ministerial meeting on Nov. 30 since ‘OPEC ministers first need to agree on cutting output and inform non-member countries about their agreement,'” the Mehr News reported.Iran said even if OPEC decides on limiting production, it won’t help much as Saudi Arabia “seems to be applying new tactics to disturb convergence of OPEC in achieving a comprehensive agreement on oil production.”The country said Saudi Arabia and Iraq have exploited several factors, such as sanctions on the Persian Gulf nation, internal strife in Libya to strengthen their market share over the past 12 years. “Saudi Arabia’s production share in OPEC has risen from 29.1% in 2004 to 31.5% in 2016 and the figure for Iraq increased from 6.5 to 13.2 per cent in the same period,” the Mehr News, citing secondary sources.In September this year, Khalid al-Falih Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, had said that crude oil prices are “nearing” their downward trend.”The current down cycle is nearing an end. Market fundamentals, in terms of supply and demand, have begun to improve. We are optimistic that oil prices will continue to improve in the future,” Khalid al-Falih told a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Alexander Novak on Sunday after a Gulf ministerial meeting in Riyadh, AFP had reported.The provisional oil import bill for 2015-2016 was Rs. 4,18,931 crore ($64.4 billion) for importing 202.5 milliom metric tonnes (mmt) of crude, down from Rs. 6,87,416 crore ($112.74 billion) paid to import 189.43 mmt.last_img read more

first_imgThe Guinness Book of World Records certainly appears to be keeping itself busy lately. Just a week ago, the organization — which usually devotes itself to measuring freakishly long finger nails, beards and the like — declared Charlie Sheen as the fastest Twitter user to ever rack up a million followers, and now it’s declaring the Kinect the fastest selling consumer electronics device ever. Wow.According to sales data gleaned from the first 60 days of the Kinect’s launch, or from between November 4th, 2010 to January 3rd, 2011, Microsoft’s gesture-sensing accessory for the 360 sold 8 million units, or an average of 133,333 units per day. That’s way, way faster than the iPad hit 8 millions units.The announcement comes just in time for the latest release of the Gunness World Records 2011 Gamer’s Edition.“The sales figures here speak for themselves,” said Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor for Guinness World Records. “According to independent research, no other consumer electronics device sold faster within a 60-day time span, which is an incredible achievement considering the strength of the sector.”Given the Kinect’s riotous success, Microsoft’s taking the opportunity to reveal some of the new games and features coming to the Kinect this spring. Apparently, you will soon be using hand gestures and voice commands to control Netflix, Hulu Plus, ESPN,, SKy, Canal+ and FOXTEL.In addition, forthcoming Kinect games include Kung Fu Panda 2, The Gunstringer, Michael Jackson The Experience, and Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster. If that doesn’t do it for you, a new Avatar Kinect feature will allow you to control your Xbox 360 avatar like a puppet in a communal Xbox Live room, with the resulting videos being fully shareable over Facebook.last_img read more

Total transactions exceeded 72 million for Enterprise Holdings’ portfolio of car rental brands, which includes Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car.Its global fleet size, meanwhile, grew to two million, plus its fully staffed neighbourhood and airport locations increased to more than 10,000 and facilitated more than 30 billion miles logged by customers worldwide.The company attributes much of this growth to strategic acquisitions / investments, and innovation.In 2007, Enterprise purchased the National and Alamo brands – its largest acquisition to date – and significantly increased its airport presence. Since 2008, Enterprise has spent nearly $2.4 billion making acquisitions and corporate-venture capital investments in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Ireland, Spain, Brazil and China. Acquisitions include car rental companies, carshare operations, tech platforms and franchises.More news:  GLP Worldwide introduces first-ever Wellness programsOn the Innovation side, during FY2018 Enterprise partnered with Voyage, a company that’s developing autonomous automotive options in North America, as well as participated in a New York City carsharing program that dedicates hundreds of parking spots in more than a dozen neighbourhoods.

Both sides hurled rocks, and police said at least 14 people were hurt.A large crowd of Chavez supporters in red shirts blocked a main road near the airport in the coastal town of Puerto Cabello before a visit by opposition candidate Henrique Capriles. A truck used by Capriles’ campaign was set ablaze, and a motorcycle was also torched.

The campaign fliers were scattered on the ground.Chavez backers also walked away with car parts and audio equipment taken from other cars of the Capriles campaign.At one point, Chavez supporters surrounded a news photographer at the airport, tore his camera from him and chased after him throwing stones. A Capriles supporter, meanwhile, threatened another photographer with a large stick as he took pictures near the runway.Carabobo state Gov. Henrique Salas Feo, a Chavez opponent, condemned the violence on television saying, “The country needs peace.”National Guard troops arrived at the airport afterward.Tensions have sporadically unleashed violent clashes and scuffles between supporters of the two candidates ahead of the Oct. 7 presidential vote, in which Chavez is seeking another six-year term.National Electoral Council president Tibisay Lucena condemned the violence, saying it appeared to have been provoked by a group of people. She didn’t lay blame on either political camp. (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Comments   Share   Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Jorge Rodriguez,Chavez’s campaign manager, blamed government opponents and said the Carabobo police, which are under Salas’ command,attacked Chavez’s partisans.Rodriguez said government supporters “have a right to protest and demonstrate freely” against Capriles’ visit.“The police arrived and savagely attacked the people,” Rodriguez said on television, adding that Chavez’s campaign has photos of Carabobo police officers in civilian clothing participating in the violence.Kelvis Olleda, a 15-year-old Chavez supporter, blamed the opposition for provoking the incident.“They started this. They were looking for us,” Olleda said, holding a stick as he joined the pro-Chavez crowd.Endris Quintero, a Capriles supporter, stood watching as people threw rocks. “It isn’t fair,” he said. “It’s an act of vandalism.”Jaime Castillo, a criminologist watching the clashes, called the violence serious. “The government has led us to this confrontation,” said Castillo.

There’s someone responsible for those actions,” Capriles told the crowd. Addressing Chavez without mentioning the president’s name, Capriles said: “It’s you who wants that scenario. It’s you who wants to sow fear.”“We know that he who turns to violence, it’s that he’s afraid of the other’s ideas,” Capriles added. “We’re tired of violence.”His supporters chanted, “We aren’t afraid!” Capriles had been on his way to the event when the clashes erupted, and to bypass the blocked road he traveled by helicopter to a spot where fishermen took him by a motorboat to the area.Chavez has recently said his rival has a hidden agenda to impose right-wing measures “that would lead Venezuela to a civil war.” But Chavez has denied intending that as a threat or trying to promote violence in any way.

better life in Europe according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) despite an overall decrease in the number of people making the crossing compared to 2015 In a tweet issued on Wednesday the humanitarian agency said more than 3800 migrants were dead and missing The figure already exceeds the 3771 migrants’ lives lost on the Mediterranean for the whole of 2015a little more than two months before the end of 2016 BREAKING Latest reports put the number of people dead and missing in the Mediterranean Sea this year at over 3800 the highest ever UNHCR News (@RefugeesMedia) October 26 2016 “This is the worst we have ever seen” UNHCR spokesperson William Spindler told reporters on Tuesday when the agency first announced their alarm at the rocketing death toll The likelihood of dying is the highest in the Central Mediterranean Route said Spindler where around half of the Mediterranean crossings this year came from the perilous route between North Africa and Italy The route’s vast distance unpredictable weather and strong currents makes it almost impossible for an overloaded boat to make it from Libya to the southern coast of Italy Libya has long been a launching pad for migrants attempting to reach Europe but not in the numbers seen in the past few years (of 150000 in 2015 compared to 64000 in 2011) The toppling of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and the country’s ensuing power vacuum has also allowed for smuggling networks to bloom into an industry estimated to be worth $5 billion to $6 billion annually The closure of the EU-Turkey route in March might have lowered peak numbers seen in 2015 but increased conflict or hardship in countries such as Somalia Ethiopia and Nigeria have compelled migrants to embark on the dangerous crossing Spindler said that the route is now seeing the "mass embarkations of thousands of people" at a time a new tactic by the smugglers that might be “geared towards lowering detection risks” or a shift in their business model This might be in response to the EU launching Operation Sophia in 2015 According to the Economist the military operation’s mission was to reduce crossings by destroying suspected
