first_imgRiyadh: Drone attacks sparked fires at two Saudi Aramco oil facilities on Saturday, the interior ministry said, the latest such assault claimed by Yemeni rebels as the energy giant prepares for a much-anticipated stock listing. Huge palls of smoke rose into the sky after the pre-dawn attacks on Abqaiq and Khurais, two major Aramco facilities in eastern Saudi Arabia, which follow a spike in regional tensions with Iran. The attacks highlight how the increasingly advanced weaponry of the Iran-linked Huthi rebels — from ballistic missiles to unmanned drones — poses a serious threat to oil installations in Saudi Arabia, the world’s top crude exporter. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”At 4:00 am (0100 GMT) the industrial security teams of Aramco started dealing with fires at two of its facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais as a result of… drones,” the interior ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. “The two fires have been controlled.” The statement added that an investigation had been launched after the attack in the kingdom’s Eastern Province, but did not specify the source of the drones. It also did not say if there were any casualties or whether operations at the two facilities had been affected. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe full extent of the damage was not immediately clear as reporters were not allowed near the plants where Saudi authorities appeared to have beefed up security. In recent months, the Huthi rebels have carried out a spate of cross-border missile and drone attacks targeting Saudi air bases and other facilities in what they say is retaliation for a long-running Saudi-led bombing campaign on rebel-held areas in Yemen. The rebels launched “a large-scale operation involving 10 drones that targeted refineries in Abqaiq and Khurais in eastern Saudi Arabia”, the group’s Al-Masirah television reported. Last month, an attack claimed by Yemen’s Huthi rebels sparked a fire at Aramco’s Shaybah natural gas liquefaction facility — close to the Emirati border — but no casualties were reported by the company. Rebel drones also targeted two oil pumping stations on Saudi Arabia’s key east-west pipeline in May, shutting it down for several days. The growing attacks underscore how Saudi infrastructure, including oil installations, are increasingly vulnerable to rebel attacks four years after a Saudi-led coalition launched a military intervention in Yemen. The Abqaiq facility, 60 kilometres (37 miles) southwest of Aramco’s Dhahran headquarters, is home to the company’s largest oil processing plant. It has been targeted by militants in the past. In an attack claimed by Al-Qaeda in February 2006, suicide bombers with explosive-laden vehicles attempted to penetrate the processing plant, killing two security guards. The two bombers also died in the attack, which failed to breach the compound, authorities reported at the time. In 2014, a Saudi court sentenced a man to death for links to the 2006 attack. Two other Saudis were jailed for 33 and 27 years respectively, state media reported. Khurais, 250 kilometres from Dhahran, hosts a major Aramco oil field.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – The Supreme Court of Canada will not hear former NHL great Guy Lafleur’s bid to seek damages stemming from an arrest several years ago.Lafleur was seeking financial compensation following his 2008 arrest for giving contradictory testimony at his son Mark’s bail hearing.The ex-Montreal Canadiens star had claimed the Crown and police were cavalier in issuing the arrest warrant, that his reputation was tarnished and that he incurred financial losses following the highly publicized event.Lafleur was arrested in 2008 and found guilty in 2009, but the conviction was overturned on appeal in 2010. Mark Lafleur eventually pleaded guilty to charges of assault, forcible confinement and uttering threats against his girlfriend.The police and Crown had maintained they were justified in proceeding with the warrant given the seriousness of the rare Criminal Code offence.Quebec Superior Court Justice Andre Wery said in a 2015 decision there was valid reason to pursue the charge against Lafleur at the time — a ruling Lafleur unsuccessfully appealed, prompting him to take his case to the Supreme Court.last_img read more

VANCOUVER — The case of a senior executive of Chinese tech juggernaut Huawei Technologies is scheduled to return to court in Vancouver today.The U.S. Department of Justice laid out its case Monday against Meng Wanzhou and Huawei, unsealing 13 criminal counts of conspiracy, fraud and obstruction.The indictment, based on 23 grand jury allegations, accuses Huawei and Meng of misrepresenting their ownership of a Hong Kong-based subsidiary between 2007 and 2017 in an effort to circumvent U.S. sanctions against Iran.The company’s U.S. branch is also accused of stealing trade secrets and equipment from cellphone provider T-Mobile USA.  Meng, who is the company’s chief financial officer and daughter of its founder, is charged with bank fraud, wire fraud and two counts of conspiracy to commit both.She is free on bail in Vancouver after her arrest Dec. 1 at the behest of U.S. authorities, who Canadian officials say have already filed a formal request for Meng’s extradition.Huawei called on Washington to stop what it called “the unreasonable crackdown” on the company, and China today called on Washington to withdraw its request for Meng’s extradition from Canada.Meng’s arrest has touched off a political furor marked by days of angry anti-Canada rhetoric from China’s foreign ministry, culminating Sunday in the firing of John McCallum as Canada’s ambassador to China.McCallum, a former longtime Liberal MP and cabinet minister, had publicly expressed confidence in Meng’s case against any U.S. extradition order.The Canadian Press read more

To flesh out the programme, which will cost a total of $17.4 million, the Zambian Government will undertake such improvements as swapping $1.3 million in debts owed by the Zambian National Savings and Credit Bank for equity and providing another $1.2 million in new cash resources, the UN International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) said.”This programme supports the Government’s Financial Sector Development Plan by creating new community-based financial institutions, promoting rural banking services and testing innovative ways of providing financial services to rural producers,” IFAD Vice-President Cyril Enweze said.Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and local microfinance institutions will provide the training and advisory services necessary to create between 1,500 and 2,000 accumulated savings and credit associations, enabling members to generate savings that can be lent to other members. Another 300 to 400 existing savings and credit groups will also receive support, along with special safeguards to make sure their activities are sustainable.A credit facility will enable commercial banks to lend money to companies that contract small rural producers for small-scale production.IFAD noted that it is supporting 192 rural poverty eradication programmes and projects worldwide, in which it has invested $2.8 billion of the total cost of $6.5 billion. read more

Season ticket-holders will be able to choose their tickets in a new online system starting in 2016.Credit: Courtesy of OSU.Ohio State football season ticket holders will soon be able to select their specific seats online, akin to the way one would buy concert tickets on a virtual map.In the past, seats could be changed by making a request during the renewal process. OSU would then consider the request and possibly make accommodations, said Martin Jarmond, OSU executive associative athletic director.The ability for specific ticket holders to improve their seats depends on their standing within the university’s “donor priority system.” The point system, which is based on a weighted calculation of the ticket holder’s current, past and revocable donations, will not change, said Martin Jarmond, OSU executive associate athletic director.The only access change will be the ability to pick specific seats, rather than requesting seats in a general area.The university began mailing out brochures Tuesday explaining the new process, according to The Columbus Dispatch. The new system will distribute tickets on a four-year basis and begin for the 2016 season.The new system was rolled out for faculty and staff this season, and Jarmond said this smaller demographic, which is roughly half of the number of public ticket holders, served as a sort of beta test, and results have been better than he expected. The biggest issue with the technology has been poor function on certain browsers.The availability of the technology was the No. 1 reason for the change. The new system will be easier for the fans and for the university, as OSU won’t have to use its manpower to screen change requests, Jarmond said.As for a financial benefit of the change, “We really have no idea. That remains to be seen,” Jarmond said. “It’s just a system change, but we don’t know yet if people are going to be donating more because of it.”The distribution method for student tickets also will not change, Jarmond said, as the lack of a seating priority system moots the need to change the student ticketing process. read more

Check out Virat Kohlis dandiya moves performed onfield during Antigua Test

first_imgVirat Kohli doesn’t mind showing off some dancing movesMark Evans/Getty ImagesGood footwork is very important for batting. But it is also the basis of good dancing. Virat Kohli seems capable of using his feet to good effect in both activities. While Virat is a Punjabi, he seems quite fond of the dandiya dance form that comes from the province of Gujarat.However, Indian cricket fans must be quite surprised to see the Indian captain performing this dance on the field of cricket during an ongoing Test match. That is what happened during the first Test between India and West Indies in Antigua.The cameras caught the master batsmen getting very groovy during the play on day 4 of the Test. It is not hard to understand why Kohli was in such good mood. After his team had given West Indies a target of 419 runs to win, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc with the new ball to reduce the West Indians to 15/5 at Tea. They were eventually 50/9 but managed to double that score thanks to some lusty blows from Kemar Roach.@imVkohli playing dandiya ?❤️❤️#WIvIND ( Credit – YouTube )— Virushka Fan (@DevanshiBhattB2) August 25, 2019 However, that didn’t prevent the Indians from registering a victory by 319 runs – their biggest, in terms of runs, away from home. Virat scored a half-century in the second innings of the match but failed to convert it into a big score. In the end, the emphatic nature of victory would prevent him feeling too dejected with that.It’s a pity that Cheteshwar Pujara and Ravindra Jadeja, the two bona fide Gujaratis in the team, didn’t join in the act. It was still a memorable performance from the Indian skipper.last_img read more

Sorority Lifts Veil on Mental Illness

first_imgWhen 50 people assembled for a symposium dealing with mental illness and the law, they expected a presentation from experts in both fields. Instead, they got touching testimony on the impact these affiliations have on family members and friends.The Xi Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority of the District of Columbia, in partnership with The Pearl and Ivy Foundation and the Reed Smith Law Firm held a symposium, “The Intersection of Mental Health and The Law” Nov. 3 at Reed Smith’s offices. Lavdena Orr, president of the chapter, said that mental health issues need to be addressed with a sense of urgency.“This issue is not a singularly but is multi-disciplinary,” Orr said. “As a pediatrician, this is an issue that we are concerned about.”Clubhouse International estimates there are 60 million people who live with a form of mental illness, particularly bipolar disorder. Theresa Donaldson-DePass, who moderated the program and is the chapter’s health promotion leader, said in her presentation that one in five Americans will personally deal with mental illness during their lifetime.According to data compiled by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, Blacks are 20 percent more likely to experience serious mental health problems than the general population.Alpha Kappa Alpha and the National Alliance for the Mental Ill entered into a partnership in 2015 to spread the word among Blacks about mental illness, the best ways to approach it, and to debunk outmoded ways of thinking and dealing with the affliction such as “praying it away” and “getting over it.”Judy Harris, who is White, isn’t a member of the sorority but was a speaker at the event. Harris, an attorney at Reed Smith and is married to famed political writer and scholar Norm Ornstein, talked about the struggles she and her husband had with their son, Matthew. “My son Matthew died at the age of 34,” Harris said. “When he died he was trying to earn back God’s love. We tried to get him to use prescription medication but he would not do it.”While Matthew seemed like a gifted, well-balanced young man, she began to notice changes in him. It would appear that Mathew hit a psychological wall when he possessed photos of the slain children of the Holocaust and had his family go through a strange personal ritual honoring them. Harris said she called the police and throughout the process of being a patient at the Sheppard-Pratt facility, he began to distrust his parents and authority.As Harris shared her story, Natalie M. Tao began to weep. When she spoke, she sympathized with Harris. “This is not a Black problem or a White problem,” Tao said. “This is everyone.”Tao said her son was a typical teenager until he started talking strangely and quoting the Bible, which was out of character for him. She cited an incident where her son was found naked and trespassing on someone else’s property.Tao said the man was about to do serious harm to her son but stopped when her son begged to be killed. Like Matthew, Tao worked to get her son to the Sheppard Pratt facility and lamented the changes in her child. “My son had an onset of schizophrenia and was bipolar,” she said. “But you would not know that by looking at him. You cannot tell whether someone has a mental illness by looking at them.”By conventional standards, Melinda Hasbrouck would seem to have it all. A longtime District resident, she has a bachelor’s degree from Towson University, a juris doctorate from the William & Mary School of Law, and a master’s degree in public health from the George Washington University Milken School of Public Health.However, Hasbrouck suffers from mental illness and wanted to be optimistic about her story.“I am here to deliver a message of hope,” said Hasbrouck, who is in treatment for bipolar disorder, bulimia, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicidal tendencies. “At one point I was living in a car and even paying rent in two places.”Like Harris and Tao, she blamed an ineffective mental health system. “I was abused in the system and survived in the system,” she said. “The last time I went to the psych ward was in 2009. I’m better but it’s not over.”last_img read more

Trash films often provide entertainment

first_imgNo matter how bad a film is, but if it supports positive enjoyment, trash films could also provide amusement and would often be considered entertaining to the audience, says a study.Typically, trash films are low budget films, which do not correspond to the mainstream standards and taste. For the study, an online survey was conducted among regular consumers of trash films and it was found that most of the participants agreed that the term “cheap” best describes trash films like Sharknado, Plan 9 from Outer Space and The Toxic Avenger.Almost all participants mentioned low budget horror films as typical examples. The study not only arrived at supporting established hypotheses and assumptions on “bad films” but also at providing new and surprising findings on trash fans and their attitude towards these films.“Although to a large extent the participants stated that the films in question were cheaply made and thus “trash”, the study also confirmed that trash films are overwhelmingly perceived as a form of positive entertainment,” said Keyvan Sarkhosh, researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics – a Germany based non-profit association.The study provided strong evidence that trash film fans are predominantly male-centric  and contain highly enthusiastic film buffs. The authors of the study were able to show that an active engagement in exchanges considerably contributes to the enjoyment of trash films.last_img read more
