Hamdan was arrested in Fort St. John nearly three years ago, and was charged with four terrorism-related offences. He was acquitted of all charges in B.C. Supreme Court last fall, but continued to be detained by Immigration officials since he is not a Canadian citizen.Hamdan’s deportation hearing is scheduled to finish on May 16th. A separate hearing to revoke Hamdan’s refugee status took place last week, though the decision from that hearing has not been published. In the meantime, Hamdan remains in custody at the Fraser Regional Correctional Centre in Maple Ridge.Story courtesy Global BC: https://globalnews.ca/news/4147042/deportation-hearing-isis-supporter/?utm_source=980CKNW&utm_medium=Facebook VANCOUVER, B.C. — An RCMP officer took to the stand yesterday at a deportation hearing in Vancouver for a former Fort St. John resident who was acquitted of terrorism charges last year.According to Global News, Cst. Tarek Mokdad testified at the deportation hearing of Othman Ayed Hamdan Monday, saying that that he had found “clear support” by Hamdan for the so-called Islamic State in his online posts. Cst. Mokdad said that Hamdan’s Facebook posts were a “cause for concern” about whether Hamdan presents a danger to national security.“I found clear support for the Islamic State,” said Cst. Mokdad, who is a member of the RCMP’s national security division, while on the stand at the Immigration and Refugee Board hearing.
The United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) reached agreement that “will consolidate their partnership and enable them to more effectively tap available resources to fight rural poverty,” IFAD said in a news release after the pact was signed in Lisbon. The agreement aims to optimize development funds in Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe and Timor-Leste. To date, the Fund has invested some $336 million in support of 27 programmes and projects worth a total of $758 million in these countries. Meanwhile, in Berne, Switzerland, the Universal Postal Union (UPU) and the Association of Post Office and Telecommunications Operators from the Portuguese Speaking Countries and Territories (AICEP) signed a cooperation agreement that means $120,000 will be distributed among the five Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa over the next two years. The funding in the deal will be used to introduce a series of measures to modernize the postal operations of those countries, as well as to broaden some reforms that began last year. New software will be introduced to better track postal items, a database of mail collection and delivery points will be created, an electronic money transfer network will be set up, and continuous testing and training will be provided to help staff. 8 November 2007Two United Nations agencies signed agreements today to help Portuguese-speaking countries in their efforts to reduce rural poverty and to streamline and improve their postal operations.
Rajapaksa’s office said that at present only 102 Army personnel have been assigned to provide security to the former President and of this number, 80 provide security while 22 are administrative personnel. “The Government has started releasing dangerous LTTE suspects who had been held in detention under the PTA. The Rajapaksa government rehabilitated and released over 11,000 LTTE cadres and only two to three hundred hard core terrorists were kept in detention with a view to taking legal action against them. These are the terrorists who are now being released. It need not be stressed that this has placed the life of President Rajapaksa in danger. In these circumstances, it is the duty of the Government to strengthen the security arrangements for former President Rajapaksa by assigning more personnel for his security,” Rajapaksa’s office added. His office said that with the release of the most dangerous LTTE terrorists held in detention, the Government is duty bound to take suitable steps not only to protect former President Rajapaksa but also the other armed forces and civil officers who provided leadership to the war. (Colombo Gazette) Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has sought more security and also denied reports that 500 army personnel had been assigned to him.Rajapaksa’s office said that media reports that 500 army personnel who had been assigned to the security contingent of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa had been withdrawn, are not true.
The absence of a CAO at Governor Simcoe Square is reportedly causing problems for Norfolk’s senior management team.Delhi Coun. Mike Columbus told Norfolk council this week that the CAO has traditionally played a utility role, filling in for senior managers when they are on vacation, taking a sick day or otherwise away from the office.Norfolk has been without a top bureaucrat since the sudden resignation of David Cribbs in mid-January. Columbus says this is creating continuity issues that should be addressed.Columbus bases his position on minutes from meetings of Norfolk’s senior management team.Norfolk’s senior managers meet frequently to co-ordinate strategy and projects. They also meet after council meetings to discuss council resolutions and directives and how they will be implemented.Minutes from these meetings are not available to the public.“There sounded like there were some challenges,” Columbus said.Columbus sponsored a motion at Tuesday’s meeting calling on Norfolk council to expedite the hiring of a new CAO. Columbus wants a replacement for Cribbs named before council’s summer recess.When the motion was presented, Columbus asked senior managers in the council chamber to explain how the absence of a CAO has complicated their jobs.However, Mayor Kristal Chopp intervened and asked for a deferral. Motions for deferral take precedence over everything else on the floor and Chopp was supported in a 5-4 vote. The matter was put over till April 9.After Tuesday’s meeting, Chopp said she had information she wants to share with council. Chopp said Columbus’s motion arrived on short notice and that there are considerations she wants to put before council before it proceeds.The CAO’s position in Norfolk pays about $180,000 a year.During January’s budget deliberations, council noted that it was saving “gapping” dollars on unfilled positions. Chopp said at the time that Norfolk County is operating smoothly without a top bureaucrat and that council would proceed with a search for Cribbs’ replacement when the time was right.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com
Upon his arrival, Detlev Mehlis, Commissioner of the UN International Independent Investigation Commission on the assassination of Mr. Hariri, immediately visited the scene of the 14 February attack which killed the former Prime Minister and several others.Prior to his departure from New York, Mr. Mehlis said that he was working with a small team that would review the evidence and information collected by previous panels. The team would later expand to include investigators from 25 to 40 countries.According to the Security Council’s 7 April resolution governing the work of the Commission, the unit would have to complete its work within three months of becoming operational but could get a three-month extension, if Secretary-General Kofi Annan thought it necessary.Tomorrow, Commissioner Mehlis is scheduled to meet Lebanon’s Ministers of Interior, Justice and Foreign Affairs. Later in the day, he is expected to also meet Mr. Hariri’s widow, Nazek.
Mining slowdown slices Caterpillar 3Q profits by 44 per cent; cuts 2013 outlook again AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Joshua Freed, The Associated Press Posted Oct 23, 2013 6:06 am MDT MINNEAPOLIS – Caterpillar’s mining business is down in a hole.Its third-quarter earnings plunged 44 per cent and it cut its forecast, again. It said revenue will be almost $11 billion lower than last year, a drop of 17 per cent. Most of the decline is in its mining gear business, where revenue is expected to fall 40 per cent.“With $11 billion coming off the top line, it has been a painful year and has required wide ranging and substantial actions across the company,” Chairman and CEO Doug Oberhelman said in a statement.Until this year, rising commodity prices had fueled a mining boom. But slower growth in China’s economy hurt demand for mining gear there as well as in Australia. Revenue in its “Resource Industries” unit, which is mostly mining, plunged 63 per cent in the Asia Pacific region.Caterpillar has already been shutting factories and cut its workforce by some 13,000 people, and temporarily laid off thousands of salaried workers. It said it has also cut its capital spending plans for the year. At the end of the quarter it employed 121,506 people full-time worldwide.The Peoria, Ill., company earned $946 million, or $1.45 per share, in the quarter that ended Sept. 30. That was down from $1.7 billion, or $2.54 per share, in last year’s quarter.Revenue tumbled 18 per cent to $13.42 billion.Analysts had predicted earnings of $1.68 per share on $14.29 billion in revenue.Even with the slowdown, it still posted operating profits in each of its units. Besides mining gear, Caterpillar makes construction and forestry equipment and large power generators.Sales in its Resource Industries unit, which includes mining, fell 42 per cent to $3 billion. Construction revenue fell 7 per cent to $4.55 billion as dealers reduced inventory. Generator sales fell 7 per cent to $4.92 billion.Caterpillar Inc. now expects 2013 earnings of about $5.50 per share, down $1 from its previous forecast. It also dropped revenue expectation to about $55 billion from $56 billion to $58 billion. The company also lowered its earnings and revenue expectations in July.Caterpillar shares fell $5.14, or 5.7 per cent, to $84.03 in morning trading.___AP Business Writer Tom Murphy in Indianapolis contributed to this report.
“This is a courageous and historic step in the interest of a negotiated political solution to a three-year conflict that has caused so much misery and destruction,” Mr. Ban said in a statement. “I look forward to the opposition’s expedited formation of a delegation that broadly represents the diversity of the Syrian opposition, including women,” he added.The Geneva Conference on Syria, which will be chaired by Mr. Ban, will open on 22 January in Montreux, Switzerland. It will then move on 24 January to the Palais des Nations in Geneva where the Joint Special Representative of the UN and the League of Arab States for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, will facilitate the talks between the two Syrian parties.The conference seeks to achieve a comprehensive agreement between the Syrian Government and the opposition for fully implementing the decision of an earlier Geneva conference in 2012, which called for the creation of a transitional government that would lead to the holding of elections.“The conference is our long-awaited chance to end the violence and begin putting the country back together,” Mr. Ban told a news conference at UN Headquarters on Sunday evening, issuing a special appeal to the Syrian parties themselves to keep one goal in mind: the end of the suffering of the Syrian people and the beginning of a transition to a new Syria.The UN has sent out invitations to the conference to more than 30 States, including the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, as well as to representatives of the Arab League, the European Union and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.Mr. Ban announced today that, after “intensive” meetings and telephone conversations with many global leaders and others who are part of the diplomatic effort on Syria, he has decided to also invite Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Greece, the Holy See, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, and Iran to the 22 January gathering in Montreux.“I believe the expanded international presence on that day will be an important and useful show of solidarity in advance of the hard work that the Syrian Government and opposition delegations will begin two days later in Geneva,” the Secretary-General stated, adding that he believes strongly that Iran needs to be part of the solution to the Syrian crisis.Well over 100,000 people have been killed and more than 8 million others driven from their homes since the conflict erupted in March 2011 between the Government and various groups seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.
Matchups that Ohio basketball fans could only dream of became a reality on the Ohio State campus Saturday. It was an all-Buckeye State theme during the Ohio Homecoming Battle for Ohio basketball game at St. John Arena, which saw Team Columbus eek out a 94-91 victory against Team Cleveland. The game saw former OSU teammates David Lighty and Jon Diebler guarding each other on the perimeter as well as university alumnus and Philadelphia 76er Evan Turner run the court with the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Tristan Thompson. Thompson was dominant in the contest, leading all scorers in the game with a double-double that included 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting and 10 rebounds for Team Cleveland. Team Columbus countered with a team-high 18 points from Ron Lewis and 17 points from Turner. A coaching staff that included former No. 1-overall NBA Draft pick Greg Oden, former OSU player Ron Stokes and Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman saw five players hit double digits on the way to the victory for the Columbus squad. Afterward, Turner called the contest a great game and a great opportunity to lock horns with former teammates and current NBA foes. Turner, who had fourth-quarter shots blocked by former OSU teammate Dallas Lauderdale and came up smiling after each rejection, called the game “fun.” “It’s great for the city,” Turner said. “Hopefully we keep doing this game every single year.” The high-paced celebrity All-Star game saw Team Cleveland control the opening eight minutes of play, but only until J.J. Sullinger, older brother of recently-drafted OSU product Jared Sullinger, struck for Team Columbus. J.J. Sullinger, sporting a thicker build than during his playing days at OSU during the 2004-2006 seasons, stuck a 3-pointer home to give Columbus the lead, 22-21, late in the first quarter. Columbus pulled ahead by half behind Turner’s 14 first-half points. Diebler, in a display familiar to OSU fans, connected on 2-of-3 3-pointers while contributing six points to the Team Columbus effort. Diebler’s day from behind the arc was just getting started. During halftime, Diebler dominated the 3-point shooting contest by scoring 5-of-5 shots on his first rack of balls before doing the same on his final rack to win the competition. Diebler defeated Dru Joyce, a high school teammate of the Miami Heat’s Lebron James at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s and player at Akron from 2003-2007. The 3-pointers for Diebler were his first in a competitive game at St. John Arena since a December 2010 win against South Carolina. Of the game and his return to St. John Arena, Diebler, a member of the winning Team Columbus side, said that he too enjoyed himself. “We were talking before the game – it was pretty awesome to get everyone together,” he said. “It was great to be back. I love this gym.” Scoring slowed in the second half – the two squads combined for 32 points in the fourth quarter – but Team Columbus forced a turnover in the closing seconds as it defended a 93-91 lead and held on for the win. Former OSU forward Dallas Lauderdale, a member of the losing Team Cleveland side, agreed with the rest, saying that the game was a memorable one. “I thought it was a great time. Playing against former teammates – it was a lot of fun,” Lauderdale said. Lauderdale, who is returning from playing professionally in Poland and will compete with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors in summer league play, added that Saturday’s game was reminiscent of practice sessions during his time at OSU. “It wasn’t weird going against (former teammates) at all,” he said. “We did it every day at the Schottenstein Center, so to be able to go out there and talk a little trash, it was fun.” There was statewide appeal for the Saturday event with cities and towns from around Ohio represented on the two teams’ respective rosters. In addition to J.J. Sullinger, Turner and Diebler, Team Columbus featured former OSU letter winners Brian Brown (1999-2002), Terence Dials(2002-2006) and George Reese (1999-2000) as well as Scoonie Penn and Columbus natives Antonio Daniels and Samaki Walker. Team Cleveland featured former Buckeyes Lighty (2007-2011), Lauderdale (2008-2011), Tony Stockman (2004-2005) and Damon Stringer (1995-1998; Cleveland State 1998-2000) in addition to Thompson, Keith McLeod (Bowling Green, 1999-2002) and Ryan Patton (Youngstown State 1999-2002).
So what’s the problem with fidget spinners?One headteacher shared a letter from a Year 7 pupil complaining that lessons are being disrupted.“They are the latest craze and roughly seven people bring them into my lessons and share spares with other people,” the unnamed girl wrote to Chris Hildrew, head of Churchill Academy in Somerset. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. “So for us, this isn’t new at all. It just seems that the rest of the world has caught up. For autistic children in schools who are often segregated, thought of as ‘nerds’, in some ways it’s quite nice that it’s their thing that has become a must-have toy.” They are marketed as a stress-reliever to help children with learning difficulties concentrate in class.But fidget spinners have instead become such a classroom distraction that the handheld toys are being banned across schools in the UK.So what are fidget spinners?If you haven’t yet heard of the new craze sweeping playgrounds, a fidget spinner is a three-pronged, palm-sized piece of plastic or metal which spins around a central weighted disc – a modern version of the old spinning top.They can cost less than £2, but deluxe versions change hands for £40 and YouTube videos demonstrating how to do tricks with them attract millions of views. We have banned fidget spinners from lessons @ChurchillAcad – here’s why. So proud of our students! #pedagoofriday pic.twitter.com/3gIJoH4euv— Chris Hildrew (@chrishildrew) April 28, 2017 However, The National Autistic Society said there was anecdotal evidence from parents that the spinners are beneficial.Carol Povey, director of the society’s Centre for Autism, said: “Autistic children have a different way of experiencing the world around them. Many find it difficult to focus on what the teacher is saying – stuff going on in the background that other children can filter out, such as the noise of a projector or light coming in through the window, can be difficult.“Having something that spins or twists can help to ground and balance them. Many adults will carry something in their pocket that has the same effect. There is very little research about how these things work, but anecdotally we believe they do work. A number of teachers posted on the Mumsnet forum, complaining that the toys were ruining lessons.One said: “I’ve had two children bring them in today ‘because it helps them to concentrate’ – no, it helps them to annoy their peers and stops everybody else from concentrating [sic].“They are now in my desk drawer waiting for their parents to come and collect them.” I guess #fidgetspinners are all the rage. My daughter finally got one. You basically just spin it. I don’t understand. #kids pic.twitter.com/BRK2jdL4By— Amber Myers (@WhisperAmber) April 29, 2017 Do they have a practical use?Fidget spinners are marketed as tools for children with autism and ADHD. One primary school teacher told the BBC that they were included in the school’s budget: “Specialists coming into the school recommend them for children and we’ll buy them in for the children that are identified.”There is no supporting scientific evidence, and at least one expert has debunked the claims. Dr Mark Rapport, director of the Children’s Learning Clinic at the University of Central Florida, said: “Using a spinner-like gadget is more like to serve as a distraction than a benefit for individuals with ADHD.” It’s been 5 days, and the fidget spinner things are already banned in my school.— 🅱avid (@BronzeShow) April 29, 2017 @justintarte Fidget spinners are such a big fad that they have been a big distraction in my classroom.— Rich Siemons (@RichSiemons) April 23, 2017 “When you are trying to focus on your work, all you can hear is it spinning round and round. If someone around you has one you kind of get attracted to it because they are trying to do tricks and everyone else is looking at it. This means that I am not doing my hardest on my work so I get less done.“To sum up, I think they should be banned in lessons.”Mr Hildrew, posted a copy of the letter on Twitter and wrote: What are children doing with them?As the gadget spins it can be balanced on top of fingers, toes, or event the nose or forehead.More than one can be stacked on top of one another, creating a spinning tower that plays with your vision.As the forces come into play, the skill lies in trying to pull off various tricks and stunts. The biggest challenge is throwing a spinner to a friend and trying to catch it, a feat even more impressive to pull off than the successful bottle-flip.

A Battle Ground man died in the hospital after a Friday-evening rear-end crash in the Orchards area. Around 6:30 p.m. Friday, Christopher D. Steffen, 62, was heading north on state Highway 503 in a Ford F-150 pickup when he struck the back of a Ford Expedition that was stopped in the left turn lane at Northeast 71st Street, according to the Washington State Patrol.

4 min read September 13, 2018 This story originally appeared on PCMag Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global This year’s new iPhones have arrived. The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR build upon the iPhone X, all coming with edge-to-edge displays, Face ID and a bevy of powerful cameras and processors.The new flagship smartphone line doesn’t feature as many dramatic changes or game-changing features as in years past. But combined with the rollout of iOS 12 on Sept. 17, the devices have plenty to offer consumers who want to upgrade. Read on for a rundown of the most notable new features and improvements the XS, XS Max and new entry-level iPhone XR.Bigger, better OLED screensThe iPhone XS has the same size 5.8-inch OLED display as the iPhone X, but Apple says the phone’s “Super Retina” display packs more pixels and 60 percent greater dynamic range than its predecessor. The massive iPhone XS Max sets a new display size record with a 6.5-inch display made up of 3.3 million pixels. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)A12 Bionic processorMost of the new phones’ performance improvements stem from the A12 Bionic processor. The 7nm chip has 6.7 billion transistors and an 8-core dedicated machine-learning engine to analyze neural network data to figure out whether to run processes on the CPU, GPU or neural engine. Apple said the A12 can process 5 trillion operations per second, compared to 600 billion operations with the A11 chip. All of this gives you significant performance bumps, with apps opening 30 percent faster while using less power.A 512GB storage optionUntil now, internal iPhone storage maxed out at 256GB. The iPhone XS and XS Max double that, with a 512GB model for those who want to pay a few hundred dollars extra.Adjust depth of fieldAndroid devices such as the Galaxy Note 9 have been able do this for a while, but with the new iPhones you can now adjust depth of field in a photo after it’s been taken. In photo-editing mode, look for the depth slider.Beefed-up camera specsThe iPhone XS and XS Max still sport the same vertical configuration as the iPhone X with a 12MP wide-angle camera and telephoto lens. However, the latest smartphones come with more powerful sensors and improved True Tone LED flash with an advanced flicker-detect system. The front camera is still a 7MP lens but has a 2x faster sensor and improved red-eye reduction, detail segmentation and more thanks to the A12 chip.Smart HDRThe A12 chip also powers what Apple is calling Smart HDR, which uses the phone’s image signal processor and neural engine to combine multiple photos into one with techniques like zero shutter lag and highlight detail to take even better quality photos. More importantly, it also greatly improves low-light photos and is available not just in photo mode but also video, portrait, timelapse and pano to add more highlight detail to every shot.Stereo recordingIn addition to overall quality improvements thanks to Smart HDR and the more powerful camera, videos will also now capture stereo sound via the four microphones built into the iPhone XS for a richer sound experience.Augmented reality and machine learningThe A12 chip improves overall performance, but also powers a range of apps and features coming in iOS 12. Cool features such as Memoji and better rendering of 3D objects in ARKit 2.0 all have machine learning running in the background to ensure everything looks smooth.Improved waterproofingA slight improvement, but the XS and XS Max bump up the iPhone’s waterproof capabilities from IP67 to IP68. The new devices are dust-proof, and waterproof up to 2 meters deep and 30 minutes submerged.Better battery lifeThe iPhone XS packs 30 minutes more battery life than the iPhone X, and the iPhone XS Max boasts an hour and a half more battery life thanks to its massive battery, the largest ever in an iPhone. Even the iPhone XR offers an hour and a half more than the iPhone 8 Plus.Dual SIMFor the first time ever, the iPhones XS and XS Max will also have dual-SIM technology combining one physical SIM card with one eSIM. Apple is calling the process Dual Sim Dual Standby (DSDS), and it will allow users to keep two phone numbers, have two different plans or travel with a local data plan without having to swap out SIM cards. There will also be a new Intel modem to boot, so the new iPhones will finally work with all four major carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile) by default.Two physical SIMs in ChinaChinese iPhone users will also have dual SIM capability. However, instead of an eSIM (it’s not as popular in China), Apple is releasing separate versions of the XS and XS Max in China that can use two physical SIM cards simultaneously. Register Now »

He will remain in custody until the trial resumes Oct. 25.The alleged offenses occurred on two separate occasions, between Nov. 2011 and Jan. 2012, and in the first week of July. Yaacoub was arrested several days before a suicide bomber killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver in Burgas, Bulgaria, in July. Cypriot Justice Minister Loucas Louca has said a tip from foreign intelligence agencies he didn’t specify led to Yaacoub’s arrest.Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Yaacoub was a Hezbollah operative who used the same “modus operandi” as the Burgas suicide bomber, but offered no evidence to back up the allegations.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Sponsored Stories Associated PressLIMASSOL, Cyprus (AP) – A Swedish-Lebanese man on Friday pleaded not guilty to charges he was planning an attack on Israeli citizens in Cyprus, in a case that Israel has said bears similarities to a suicide bombing that killed five Israeli tourists and a bus driver in Bulgaria last summer.A state prosecutor read out eight charges against Hossam Taleb Yaacoub, including conspiracy and consent to commit a criminal offense and participation in a criminal organization. Yaacoub originally faced 17 terrorism and terrorism-related charges according to police, but prosecutors last month dropped any reference to terrorism in the new charges without explanation.

We lose about 15 to 20 per cent of our taste at 50,000 feet and finding a food offering that has authentic Vietnamese flavours to suit different passengers isn’t easy. I look forward to the challenge.“The Vietnam Airlines collaboration is a very exciting partnership for me. I’ve always been impressed with how much pride they take in providing top-quality cuisine, so for my dishes to take off in such a big way is pretty special. I’m already dreaming up my next idea for the airline.”Le Hong Ha, the executive vice president of Vietnam Airlines, said: “As the national carrier, we always aim to introduce our passengers to a truly Vietnamese experience, and we are delighted to work with Luke Nguyen to bring this to life.”Go back to the e-newsletter
