UN refugee agency voices dismay at Swedens forcible repatriation of Iraqis

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said one of those expelled from Sweden had told its staff in Baghdad that he had fled Iraq in 2007 after militiamen threatened to kill him. He said his asylum application was rejected three times in 2008.“UNHCR strongly reiterates its call on countries to refrain from deporting Iraqis who originate from the most perilous parts of the country,” Melissa Fleming, UNHCR spokesperson in Geneva, told reporters.The agency said the repatriations are being carried out at a time when its five offices in Iraq are reporting a significant rise in the number of Christians fleeing Baghdad and Mosul to the Kurdistan Regional Government Region (KRG) and Ninewa plains.Since the attack on a church in Baghdad on 31 October and subsequent targeted attacks, the Christian communities in Baghdad and Mosul have started a slow but steady exodus out of the two areas.Some 1,000 families have arrived in KRG and Ninewa since the beginning of November, according to UNHCR.“We have heard many accounts of people fleeing their homes after receiving direct threats. Some were able to take only a few belongings with them. Our offices have distributed emergency assistance and are in contact with the local authorities to ensure that the recently displaced Christians are supported and assisted,” Ms. Fleming said.UNHCR offices in neighbouring Syria, Jordan and Lebanon are reporting a growing number of Iraqi Christians arriving and contacting the agency for registration and help, she said.“Churches and NGOs [non-governmental organizations] are warning us to expect more people fleeing in the coming weeks. Many of the new arrivals explain that they left in fear as a result of the church attack on 31 October,” said Ms. Fleming.In Syria, some 133 families or 300 individuals have registered with UNHCR since November, the majority of whom fled Iraq following the October church attack. The number of those registered in Jordan in October and November has doubled from the same period last year. Some 57 Christian refugees were registered in Jordan in September, compared to 98 and 109 in October and November.“UNHCR recognizes the efforts the Iraqi Government is making to try to protect all its citizens, including vulnerable minority groups such as the Christians.“The Iraqi Government has reiterated its commitment to increase the protection of places of worship. While overall civilian casualties are lower this year than last, it appears that minority groups are increasingly susceptible to threats and attacks,” said Ms. Fleming.The agency reiterated its position that asylum-seekers who originate from the Iraqi governorates of Baghdad, Diyala, Ninewa and Salah-al-Din, as well as from Kirkuk province, should not be deported and should benefit from international protection. 17 December 2010The United Nations refugee agency today deplored Sweden’s decision this week to forcibly repatriate a group of 20 Iraqis, including five people from the minority Christian community who are originally from Baghdad. read more

NEW YORK — Stock indexes were posting slight losses in early trading on Wall Street Wednesday as a weak showing for railroad operator CSX pulled industrial companies broadly lower.Banks were also falling as investors worry that lower interest rates will hurt their profits going forward.Technology stocks bucked the downward trend and put up some solid gains. Qualcomm rose 0.6% following reports that the government asked a court to pause enforcement of an antitrust ruling. Microsoft, Intel and Adobe also rose.Corporate earnings reports are getting into full swing this week, and investor have been mostly cautious in their assessments of them. Earnings are still expected to decline for S&P 500 companies in the second quarter.CSX plunged 11.4% after saying it now expects its revenue to decline up to 2% this year, after previously saying it expected growth. Investors read that as trouble for the entire industry and sent the stock of other railroad operators lower. Union Pacific sank 5.2% and Norfolk Southern dropped 5.5%.Abbott Laboratories gained 4.2% and pushed health care stocks higher after the maker of infant formula and drugs raised its financial forecast for the year.

NHL Notebook Jerry Bruckheimers hockey dream comes true with Seattle

Jerry Bruckheimer says he’s had a camera in his hand since the age of six.Around the same time, the future Hollywood producer also got a first taste of hockey.“My dad took me to a Red Wings game and I sat in the rafters there and looked down on some of the great players who were playing in those days,” Bruckheimer recalled of growing up in Detroit watching Gordie Howe and his teammates. “I got very excited about the sport.”But as the years passed and the movie mogul’s career took off, Bruckheimer drifted away from the game until the trade that shook hockey brought the Great One to California. “When Wayne Gretzky came to Los Angeles I started taking skating lessons and have been playing ever since,” he said. “I get up and down the ice as slowly as possible, but I still get there.”A frequent attendee of Kings games, the 75-year-old will soon be even closer to the action as a minority owner with Seattle’s new NHL team after the league approved the city’s expansion bid at this week’s board of governors meetings.“It’s exciting and daunting and scary and all the things,” Bruckheimer added after the announcement in Sea Island, Ga. “You just want to do right for Seattle, and bring great players and hopefully pick a name where we won’t get too many people mad at us. That’s the daunting challenge that we have, but we know that Seattle has the greatest fans.“We’re going to educate the ones that don’t understand hockey on what a wonderful sport it is.”The league’s 32nd team will start playing in the untapped U.S. Pacific Northwest beginning in 2021-22.Currently shooting a sequel to the 1986 blockbuster movie “Top Gun,” Bruckheimer could barely contain his excitement ahead of Seattle getting the official thumbs-up from the NHL, snapping pictures of the media with his digital camera before commissioner Gary Bettman’s official announcement at a packed press conference.He said afterwards that joining billionaire majority owner David Bonderman’s group pushing for a team in Seattle was a no-brainer.“It’s a phenomenal city, it’s got a great work force, it’s got a very young work force, it’s got some of the greatest sports fans in the world,” he said. “Every time I turn a Seahawks game on I see how rabid their fans are.”Seattle team president and CEO Tod Leiweke said there was incredible anticipation before meeting with representatives of the league’s other teams following the unanimous vote“We’re outside the door. We heard our video playing. We thought, ‘Well, that’s a good sign,’ because I always get goose bumps when I see that video,” Leiweke said. “We walked in and there was love and warmth and it felt just right.”While the NHL’s expansion to Seattle seemed like a slam dunk from the outside, Bruckheimer said he wasn’t counting on anything until getting the official word.“I don’t believe anything until it’s done,” Bruckheimer. “You have disappointments when you get your hopes up and it doesn’t happen. Today was it. When they called us in that room and said ‘congratulations,’ then I knew we were there.”Seattle’s NHL team is expected to begin the process of filling its hockey operations staff as early as next spring or summer, but don’t expect Bruckheimer to be a meddling owner.“I leave it to professionals,” he said with a smile. “We try to hire really good people to run the organization. Smart people stay out of it (and) let the people who know what they’re doing do it.” BARKOV’S BYNG CHASESecond in voting for the Lady Byng Trophy in 2015-16 and third last season, Florida captain Aleksander Barkov is taking another stab becoming the league’s most gentlemanly player. The 23-year-old has drawn an NHL-best 19 minor penalties so far this season without being whistled for a single infraction himself in 26 games. Barkov also sits tied for third on the Panthers with 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists).—Follow @JClipperton_CP on TwitterJoshua Clipperton’s weekly NHL notebook is published every WednesdayJoshua Clipperton, The Canadian Press NYLANDER CONTRACT DISPUTE THE NEW NORM?Negotiations between William Nylander and Toronto GM Kyle Dubas on a new contract went down to the wire on Saturday. The restricted free agent’s impasse with the team finally ended with a deal that carries an average annual value of US$10.2 million this season and $6.9 million for years two through six. With a number of young stars — including Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, Patrik Laine and Mikko Rantanen — all set to hit restricted free agency next summer there could be more holdouts are on the horizon. But Bettman’s announcement this week that the salary cap is likely to jump from $79.5 million to $83 million next season should give teams a little more wiggle room. read more

This €18 million Malibu mansion comes with a secret Batcave

first_img A car plowed through the main hall of Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, New York SpaceX is trying to buy a hamlet inside its Texas rocket-launch site because it ‘did not anticipate’ there’d be any ‘significant disruption’ to residents who live there The US is building a case against Iran in the attacks on Saudi Arabia, but Trump is in no rush to act 16-year-old Greta Thunberg met with Obama and chided senators, saying they’re not trying hard enough to fight climate change IF YOU’VE EVER fantasized about having your very own Batcave, this Malibu home could make your superhero dreams come true.Sure, it doesn’t have the Batmobile or Michael Caine’s charming cockney accent, but it is located underground and even has a secret entranceway, according to the Wall Street Journal.And the Batcave, along with the mansion above it, can be yours for €18.33 million.Dan Romanelli, the founder of the consumer-products division at Warner Bros., built the superhero-inspired space in 2006.“Batman was something that really helped build my division,” Romanelli, who worked on toys linked to the series, told The WSJ.The nearly 6-acre, 10,270-square-foot property has five bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, an elevator, gym, and pool.The home is located in Malibu, about an hour’s drive from downtown Los Angeles, and is listed by Santiago Arana of the Agency.last_img read more

Microsoft plans freetoplay games on Xbox Live

first_imgMicrosoft has decided to embrace the increasingly popular free-to-play model with a handful of titles set to come out on Xbox Live with no upfront charge to players. Like other free-to-play titles, publishers hope the money will come after users begin playing and get hooked, encouraging them to spend more money than they would have if it was just a box on the shelf at GameStop.A multiplayer, cartoony fighting game called Happy Wars will be the first such title to grace Microsoft’s online marketplace. Following that will be an RPG titled Ascend: New Gods, and then a series of other new games spread out over the next several months. Of course, with the Xbox 360, free-to-play comes with an asterisk because players need to be Xbox Live Gold members, which already plays on the same concept. In-game purchases will draw from users’ existing Microsoft Points account.The free-to-play model has become an inescapable part of the changing climate in gaming. While it has been a part of the industry as long as there have been computers with Internet connectivity, it did not really sweep into the foreground of mainstream gamers until the explosion of mobile gaming.It is the most profitable way to design an iPhone game. Statistics prove that people who download a supposedly “free” game from the App Store will end up spending more money over the life of that app than they would if they purchased a different game for a one-time fee of just a few bucks.This market isn’t without its controversies. Apple had to change the structure of in-app purchases after mobile game creators sneakily made it possible for children to rack up $50 to $100 in a single transaction without requiring their parents to authenticate their iTunes account.When it comes to console games, though, it’s a very different environment in terms of user demographics, expectations, and production and advertising costs. Nevertheless, this new model is starting to bleed into the market so deeply rooted in a stagnant pricing model. The online RPG Free Realms is available on the PS3 with no upfront cost. So is DC Universe Online and soon to be Dust 514.In other words, this is a trend that is here to stay, and will only continue to grow.via Official Xbox Magazinelast_img read more

Adelaide family caught up in Paris during attack

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Adelaide local Harry Tavlaridis found himself caught up in Paris on the day of the deadliest attacks to hit the French capital since World War II. Fresh from completing the Athens marathon, the 50-year-old was visiting Paris with his wife Anastasia and their 10-year-old daughter Olga for sightseeing and a bit of recovery. After visiting the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, they arrived back to their hotel room to see the news of the unfolding events. “Family frantically contacted us to confirm we were safe and then we understood what had happened,” Harry told Neos Kosmos. “We hadn’t visited those places specifically but we could recognise some major roads around them and thought it was surreal that we had only recently been in those areas, doing a leisurely drive around Paris earlier that day.” Staying 30 kilometres outside the Paris city centre, the family decided to keep away from popular tourist spots following the events, opting instead to visit local malls and try and shield their daughter from the inescapable news and imagery that was unfolding. Harry said the local mood was inconceivable, in a country that has a booming multicultural buzz. “One of the striking things we noticed before the attacks was how well integrated the French society was. We witnessed many cross-ethnic families enjoying the Parisian lifestyle, which made the attacks even more incomprehensible. “Travelling around the countryside a day later, we noticed that though people seemed to go about their lives as usual, there was an edge, a nervousness, and an awareness of foreigners amongst the small groups sipping coffee at cafés.” Despite the tragic events that struck Paris, the Tavlaridis family was celebrating Harry’s major achievement of completing the gruelling 42-kilometre Athens marathon a few days earlier. After shedding 27 kilograms in a 20-month period, Harry sprang into action when he was nearing the age of 50, joining a local gym in North Adelaide, and sticking to a stringent meal plan to cut down fat and build muscle. “I decided I would take control and be not only slim but fit as well. I wanted to show my kids I had the dedication to my own health for their sake, and also that they could join me and live fit lives into the future.” It was a friend that encouraged him to set his marathon goal, in order to challenge himself beyond just losing weight. “I’ve always been of the view that extraordinary achievements are realised when one is suitably challenged. When I thought about which of all the marathons around the world I should aim for, I couldn’t go past the original – and so the adventure began.” Harry explained that it was the thought of his daughters that spurred him on throughout, and the fact that he was in the birth-country of his family. “I thought of my daughters and their daily battle with T1Diabetes, and thought if they can struggle every day, I can do this just once. “I also felt extremely proud of the fact that as a Greek Australian, I returned to my homeland to complete my challenge.” And for him the icing on the cake was completing the marathon run with Olga. “My daughter, who was waiting for me to finish the marathon, jumped the security fence as I came into the stadium and ran the last 100m with me to the finishing line. I loved her spontaneity, and she showed me how proud she was of her father. She kissed and hugged me when we crossed the line, a moment that I will always remember and cherish dearly.” Harry finished the Athens Marathon 10,155th out of 11,834, with a time of five hours, 44 minutes and 21 seconds.last_img read more

Monday Afternoon Update High Fire Activity Expected To Continue On Swan Lake

first_imgTorching, active ground fire, and smoldering will continue to aid spread with available fuels, aspect and slope, according to Gilbert. Fire activity in the Hideout Mountain, Hidden Lake, Juneau Lake, Bear Mountain, Fuller Lake, Kenai River corridor and Sterling Highway areas will continue. Decreasing cloud cover and backing wind to the N-NW should increase fire activity. The Incident Management Team has separated the fire into multiple branches in order to have teams on each branch focused on one community. Each branch is stationed on a portion of the fire to keep the surrounding communities secure. Continued updates will be posted as they are made available. Extremely dry fuels will continue to support active fire spread over the next few days combined with more sun, slightly higher temperatures and lower relative humidity. Northwest winds will once again tend to push smoke and fire spread to the southeast.center_img Travel is not recommended on the Sterling Highway related to the continuing level of fire activity between MP 53-71. Expect significant delays. Gilbert: “The rest of the fire, things are looking pretty good. There is some fire activity on the northeast portion, but overall we are making good progress and we feel good about the outlook.”  Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Original Post: Noon: The Swan Lake Fire is estimated at 150,246 acres with a total of 613 personnel. Crews will continue securing fire edge to the south of Sterling Highway to reduce the potential of future closures between Cooper Landing and Soldotna.Rocky Gilbert, Fire Manager: “We had something coming around, wind blowing, from the southwest later in the day on Sunday, the fire got very active and started moving towards the Sterling Highway. Firefighters got out ahead of it and tried to light off the highway to keep fire from encroaching upon the highway. A lot of smoke, dust, and we had aircrafts flying so we had lots of road closures due to limited visibility and firefighters on the roadway.” last_img read more

PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi joins Donald Trumps advisory council

first_imgUnited States President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday appointed PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi as a member in his Strategic and Policy forum, which would help him implement his economic agenda. She is the only Indian-American executive who is part of Trump’s 19-member advisory council.”America has the most innovative and vibrant companies in the world, and the pioneering CEOs joining this Forum today are at the top of their fields. My administration is going to work together with the private sector to improve the business climate and make it attractive for firms to create new jobs across the United States from Silicon Valley to the heartland,” Trump’s statement said. Trump’s transition team said that the advisory council members would regularly give him views on government policy, job-creation and productivity “in a frank, non-bureaucratic and non-partisan manner.”The forum is headed by Stephen Schwarzman, the CEO of the investment company Blackstone. It also includes Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric; Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla; Travis Kalanick of Uber; Jamie Dimon of Chase; and General Motors’ Mary Barra. Nooyi, 61, heads PepsiCo, which has an annual revenue of more that $63 billion and employees over 110,000 people. Following the November 8 election, the Indian-American (who was known as a Hillary Clinton supporter) was in news for her strong comments, when she said Trump’s victory left her daughters, gay workers, female employees and non-whites devastated, as they were seriously concerned about their safety in the US.last_img read more

Police Woman Who Drove SUV With Family Off Cliff Was Drunk

first_imgCourtesy of California Highway Patrol via AP, FileThis March 25, 2018, Safeway surveillance file photo provided by the California Highway Patrol shows Jennifer Hart, right, at a Safeway store in Fort Bragg, Calif.A woman was drunk when she drove her large family off a Northern California cliff last month and her wife and several children had large amounts of a drug in their systems that can cause drowsiness, authorities said Friday.Police had previously said they believed the Hart family died in a suicide plunge from a scenic overlook. The crash happened just days after authorities in Washington state opened an investigation following allegations the children were being neglected.Preliminary toxicology tests found Jennifer Hart had an alcohol level of 0.102, said California Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter. California drivers are considered drunk with a level of 0.08 or higher.Tristan Fortsch/APThis March 20, 2016, photo shows the Hart family of Woodland, Wash., at a Bernie Sanders rally in Vancouver, Wash.Toxicology tests also found that her wife Sarah Hart and two of their children had “a significant amount” of an ingredient commonly found in the allergy drug Benadryl, which can make people sleepy. Toxicology results for a third child killed are still pending, Carpenter said.Carpenter said none of the car’s occupants were wearing seatbelts.Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the family’s SUV when it plunged off a cliff in Mendocino County, more than 160 miles (250 kilometers) north of San Francisco.Authorities have said that data from the vehicle’s software suggested the crash was deliberate, though the California Highway Patrol has not concluded why the vehicle went off an ocean overlook on a rugged part of coastline. A specialized team of accident investigators is trying to figure that out with help from the FBI, Carpenter said.“We believe that the Hart incident was in fact intentional,” he said.Carpenter said the family stopped in the small town of Naselle, Washington, near their Woodland, Washington, home, during their drive to the California cliff but that investigators are still trying to determine why they stopped there and whether they contacted anyone.Five bodies were found March 26 near the small city of Mendocino, a few days after Washington state authorities began investigating the Harts for possible child neglect, but three of their children were not immediately recovered from the scene.Two more are missing and another body has been found but not identified.The 100-foot (31-meter) drop killed the women, both 39, and their children Markis Hart, 19; Jeremiah Hart, 14; and Abigail Hart, 14. Hannah Hart, 16; Devonte Hart, 15; and Sierra Hart, 12, have not been found.Devonte drew national attention after he was photographed in tears while hugging a white police officer during a 2014 protest.A neighbor of the Harts in Woodland, Washington, had filed a complaint, saying the children were apparently being deprived of food as punishment.Long before the crash, Sarah Hart pleaded guilty in 2011 to a domestic assault charge in Minnesota over what she said was a spanking given to one of her children.And authorities have said social services officials in Oregon contacted the West Linn Police Department about the family in 2013 while they were living in the area.

Valve offers IGF 2013 finalists a free pass on to Steam

first_imgUnless you class as a well-known developer or publishers, getting your game on to Steam requires it go through the Steam Greenlight process and get enough votes to qualify. But Valve is willing to offer some developers a free pass if their work warrants it.That’s the case with the Independent Game Festival for 2013, which is always a showcase for the best of indie gaming. Valve has decided to offer Steam distribution deals to all of the IGF 2013 finalists, meaning there’s the potential for up to 38 new indie games to make it on to the Steam store next year without Greenlight playing a role.There’s a selection of finalists chosen by a panel of over 200 judges for each of the following categories (listed with prize money awarded):Seamus McNally Grand Prize ($30,000)Nuovo Award ($5,000)Excellence in Visual Arts ($3,000)Excellence in Audio ($3,000)Excellence in Design ($3,000)Excellence in Narrative ($3,000)Technical Excellence ($3,000)Audience Award ($3,000)Some finalists feature in more than one category, but in total there will be 5 finalists per category with the exception being the Nuovo Award which has 8 finalists. The selected games will be announced in January next year, with the actual award ceremony happening at GDC 2013 in San Francisco next March.It seems unlikely this is a one year offer by Valve, and I fully expect a free pass on to Steam to become a regular addition to the benefits of being an IGF finalist. It also works for Valve, as there’s a very good reason the games are finalists–they are very good new games that will sell.More at the IGFlast_img read more

Gulf states delay decisions on closer ties

first_img New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Comments   Share   It also suggested there were limits on how much the Western-allied bloc could integrate its policies, despite speaking with a common voice against Iran’s ambitions and the need to work together to preserve their ruling dynasties.Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal said the unity plans now require more study before bringing them to a vote among the member states: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.The move came as a surprise. The meeting was widely expected to endorse what has already happened on the ground: an effective “union” between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain whose embattled monarchy has been aided by Saudi troops and money.“The aim of postponing the announcement of the union between the six countries is to bring onboard all the members and not only two,” said the Saudi foreign minister.But the Saudi-led vision of a super-state stretching from Kuwait to Oman still seems to be a hard sell. There are concerns about how much influence would be given to Saudi Arabia as the bloc’s de facto power, and whether its ultraconservative views could cast shadows over Western-friendly centers such as Dubai and Doha.Worries about Saudi dominance have already frozen plans for a single Gulf currency. Opposition groups in Bahrain, however, have strongly denounced the calls for tighter bonds with Saudi Arabia and possibly other Gulf states. The head of Bahrain’s main Shiite political group, Al Wefaq, said referendums should be held to determine support for closer Gulf union.“This is how governments that respect their people deal with such matters,” said Sheik Ali Salman. “While here, the union is forcefully imposed, which shows how the governments, here, are just looking down on their peoples.”In Tehran, about 190 lawmakers _ more than half Iran’s parliament _ issued a statement condemning the union plans.“This will relay Bahrain’s crisis to Saudi Arabia and drive the region toward more unrest. It will add to the problems,” said the statement, which was read on Iranian state radio.___Murphy reported from Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Top Stories The GCC, created in 1981, holds frequent discussions on region-wide policies and development initiatives, but member states retain wide autonomy.“For all the sense more GCC integration makes, the challenges to a European Union-like structure is fraught with questions, challenges and potential pitfalls,” said an editorial Monday in the Abu Dhabi-based The National newspaper, which often reflects the views of United Arab Emirates’ authorities.“Closer integration with its neighbors is welcome, but not at the expense of losing the country’s unique influence.”Without doubt, however, the upheavals of the Arab Spring have forced stronger collective action from the wealthy Gulf states, which have stepped up their international roles to openly support rebel forces in places such as Libya and Syria.At the same time, they have bonded together in clampdowns on perceived opposition groups in the Gulf and have taken a hard line against Shiite giant Iran, which it accuses of encouraging protests against the Sunni ruling systems in Bahrain and elsewhere. Iran denies the claims.Last year, Saudi forces led 1,500 Gulf troops into tiny Bahrain to help prop up the kingdom’s Sunni dynasty against a Shiite-led uprising, which is now in its 15th month. The result has been a virtual melding of the two countries on the ground _ with the Saudi and Bahraini flags often displayed in unison at the airport and some security checkpoints. Associated PressRIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) – Gulf Arab states said Monday they would delay any decisions on proposals for closer political and security ties, showing possible signs of internal discord over measures portrayed as potential shields against regional rival Iran and pro-reform challenges inspired by the Arab Spring.The postponement announced at the meeting of Gulf Cooperation Council envoys in the Saudi capital of Riyadh appeared to reflect concerns within six-nation group over whether smaller nations would sacrifice their independence by handing too much clout to powerhouse Saudi Arabia.center_img More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Men’s health affects baby’s health too Sponsored Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t likelast_img read more

According to Guangzhou Tourism, travellers from 30 different countries have taken advantage of the new visa-free policy, and nearly 40 per cent of those who stopped over in Guangzhou were from Australia and New Zealand. China Southern executive vice president Chen Gang, NSW MP Mark Coure and  Guangzhou Tourism also announced Guangzhou was now China’s third largest city for tourism, with more than 50 million visitor nights recorded for 2013 and encouraged travel agents to take advantage of the variety of new benefits and itineraries offered under the city’s new Travel Without a Visa policy.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   This time of year, it’s not an overwhelming shock that the Arizona Cardinals defense is noticeably ahead of the offense.What is somewhat surprising, however, is the level of dominance the unit — especially the first-team — has exhibited over the first two games of the preseason. In fact, until Gavin Escobar’s touchdown grab early in the fourth quarter of Arizona’s 12-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys Saturday, the Cardinals defense hadn’t allowed a single point through the first 109 minutes and five seconds of live action in 2013. “You’ve got guys like Tyrann [Mathieu], Patrick [Peterson] and Daryl Washington who are known for creating turnovers,” said Powers. “If the pieces that we’ve added this offseason can build on that, then we can be a scary defense.” “That’s the emphasis you have any time you go into a preseason or regular season game, not to let the other team score,” Darnell Dockett said. “But our biggest thing right now is taking care of each other and making sure we’re doing the small things right. We’re not going into a game looking for a shutout, we’re looking for accountability. Every time we come in we just don’t want to be that guy.”Given the influx of new players — Jasper Brinkley, Jerraud Powers, Antoine Cason, Yeremiah Bell, Tyrann Mathieu, John Abraham, Alex Okafor, Matt Shaughnessy, Karlos Dansby, Lorenzo Alexander, Kevin Minter, Frustee Rucker, Javier Arenas, Tony Jefferson — and a new defensive scheme under coordinator Todd Bowles, there was an expectation that several members of the defense would likely be ‘that guy’ at some point in the preseason.Yet while a learning curve was to be expected, the Cardinals have shown few ill effects from their defensive transformation.If anything, the defensive looks even more dynamic and opportunistic than the unit that forced the third-most takeaways in the NFC a season ago.In their five-point victory over the Cowboys Saturday, Bruce Arians’ squad forced six total turnovers, including one on special teams. “I was really pleased with the way we took the ball away,” Arians said. “We have eight takeaways in two games, it’s something we can continue to build upon defensively.”While the Cowboys — and in particular Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar and Dwayne Harris — were able to convert on several chunk plays, the Cardinals’ defensive playmakers were never far behind.In the second quarter alone, the team forced four turnovers, including a pair — Powers’ strip of Bryant after a 27-yard catch and Brinkley’s recovery after a 43-yard catch by Dunbar — that had far more to do with hustle and effort than being at the right place at the right time.“I thought we did give up a few too many yards, but the main thing is if you can stop your opponent from scoring and create turnovers, you’re going to put yourself in position to win a lot of ball games,” said Powers. “We’ve been doing that the first two preseason games, but we can be better.”It might be hard to top eight turnovers in two games — preseason or otherwise — but as Powers noted after Saturday’s game, the rewards they’ve reaped thus far are not a surprise to anyone on Bowles’ defense. Given the personnel decisions made in the offseason and the level of physicality that has taken center stage through the first few weeks of training camp, it’s almost expected.

Turkish monitoring of drillship no cause for concern Fokaides says

first_imgBy George Psyllides and Andria KadesDEFENCE minister Christoforos Fokaides said Friday there was no cause for concern from Turkey’s moves in relation with the island’s offshore natural gas exploration activity, while the foreign ministry issued a separate statement saying that legislation will be ready soon to determine a wealth fund from where all Cypriots would benefit.Speaking in Limassol, Fokaides said Turkey’s provocations had been expected and should not cause concern. The National Guard is monitoring the situation but it did not serve national interest to reproduce a climate of tension, he added.“We should not get carried away either in creating or reproducing a climate of tension, whose only objective is to scupper or postpone our energy plans,” the defence minister said. “There is no cause for concern or panic; the sooner we stop preoccupying ourselves with what is going on at the drillship on a daily basis, the better.”Ankara announced it had dispatched a frigate to monitor a drillship conducting offshore gas exploration south of the island.The Turkish armed forces general staff said on its website that it ordered the frigate TCG Gokceada to track the West Capella drillship that arrived in Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) in the early hours of Wednesday.“The (frigate) is fulfilling its duty in the eastern Mediterranean monitoring the West Capella… which, it is assessed, may carry out drilling activities,” the military said.On Thursday, Turkey said it would take measures against Greek Cypriot exploration for oil or gas around Cyprus, according to its foreign minister who added that Turkish Cypriots had rights on those reserves.Fokaides said these were Turkey’s usual moves “also seen in previous drills,” and did not rule out the possibility of the provocations continuing in a bid to create a tense climate.“We are doing what we have to do. It is not the benefit of our national interests to militarize the matter; we are monitoring the situation closely … and remain focused to the national objective, which is the realisation of our plans,” he said.The foreign ministry in turn issued a statement saying legislation was currently in parliament on creating a national investment fund where profits from hydrocarbons would go “towards the benefit of all Cypriots.”Results of explorations should interest the Turkish Cypriot community as the future wealth would be shared, however Turkey should follow international law, the statement added.“The real reason the negotiations reaped no result is Turkey’s constant wish to completely control and interfere on the island whenever it considers it necessary, using the interests of Turkish Cypriots as a pretext.”Energy minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis said drilling could begin as early as Saturday or Sunday the latest and everything was on schedule.His Turkish counterpart Berat Albayrak, however, said Morphou would be the next stop for the research vessel Barbaros after Famagusta.Speaking to the Turkish press, he was quoted as saying, “we’ve completed investigations in Famagusta. Hopefully our next step is Morphou. The area of Morphou is important for us.“With our work in Morphou, we will play an effective role in the eastern Mediterranean.”Albayrak told reporters that there had been contacts with oil companies which he did not name, but that had been very constructive. He said the companies were reluctant in engaging work in dangerous territory.“Without a legal solution to the (Cyprus) problem, it isn’t right for these companies to take steps in dangerous areas,” he said, adding that some firms did not share the same stance for which Turkey did not view positively.Hydrocarbons in Cyprus belong to the whole island, “but if you do what you want, dividing it into blocks and licencing them to companies, as a guarantor power, it isn’t possible for us to see this in positive light,” Albayrak said.The European Commission urged Turkey to refrain from friction that could damage good neighbourly relations.Spokeswoman Maja Kocijianic, reiterated the “long standing position of the European Commission that “communication channels should remain open” and that “parties should avoid friction that could damage neighbourly relations”.President Nicos Anastasiades, speaking at the French embassy which was celebrating Bastille Day, said that although the desired result was not achieved at the Conference on Cyprus in Crans-Montana, what was achieved was that “for the first time, in the epicentre of the talks, was the security of Cypriots and not serving the geopolitical interests of any third country.”“Turkey’s insistence, but I have to say that of the Turkish Cypriot side too, on the chapters to do with security and guarantees and their insistence to maintain the 1960 guarantees is anachronistic which has no place in 2017.”Proposals submitted by Anastasiades dealt with concerns the Turkish Cypriot side had, he said, but nevertheless, work now needed to be exerted on creating conditions to allow for optimism that there would be an end to the “current unacceptable situation.”Anastasiades said there was no doubt that cooperation between Cyprus and France, particularly with energy giant Total currently set to begin drilling on the island’s exclusive economic zone block 11, boosts relations between the two countries that also have a mutual goal to combat terrorism.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
