2nd Annual Coldest Night of the Year exceeds expectations

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Although it may not have technically been the coldest night Fort St John has faced this year, it was chilly enough for the 2nd Annual Coldest Night of the Year Fundraiser this past Saturday.The annual event attracted eighty-two walkers to take part in the two- and five-kilometre walks at North Lights College and along the Fish Creek Community Forest trails. All donations raised from the Coldest Night of the Year Walk will go directly to benefit Community Bridge. Community Bridge offers a variety of services to the needy in the local community including violence and homelessness prevention, counselling, women’s outreach and youth justice. Event organizer Faye Anstey said the event was an excellent opportunity to reflect on how we would feel if we were stuck outside like the homeless in our community.Participants enjoying some hot chilli after their chilly walks. Photo by Jessica TelizynThe goal was to raise $25,000, and as of Saturday, the online fundraiser had brought it over $19k. As the walk started, an immense amount of cash donations came in, which will not be counted and added to the total until the end of this week. Jamie Herrington raised $1,165 for the event, making her one of the biggest individual fundraisers to take part. She said her success in raising the money was due to being involved in the local community. “Being involved in different areas of the local community, like my fighting community gave me the ability to reach out to local gyms, and local businesses and meet them on a friend level to ask for their support.” In the coming years, Anstey said she hopes to add a 10-kilometre walk to the event. Donations are still being accepted at https://cnoy.org/location/fortstjohn.last_img read more

Nepal UN welcomes verdict on castebased discrimination

21 March 2010The United Nations human rights office in Nepal today welcomed a key judgment handed down in a case involving discrimination on the basis of caste, hailing it as an important step forward in the fight against discrimination in the Asian nation. Earlier this month, the District Court in Baitadi, in western Nepal, found a man guilty of physically assaulting the father of the groom during a wedding ceremony in July 2009 for practicing rituals “reserved for high-caste communities.” The accused was sentenced to one year in prison and fined 5,000 rupees. In a similar case in January, the same court issued a verdict, sentencing the main perpetrator behind attacks against 12 Dalits – or so-called “untouchables” – for not following discriminatory rituals at a temple to two years in prison and a fine of 25,000 rupees. In a joint statement issued by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal), the National Dalit Commission (NDC) and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), the three organizations said that the verdicts are in accordance with international law. They are also in line with article 14 of Nepal’s Interim Constitution, which says that racial discrimination are punishable and that victims are entitled to compensation, the statement said. Referring to both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the Baitadi court stressed that “discrimination based on the principle of caste supremacy is? morally unacceptable, socially unjust and dangerous.” But the three organizations expressed their deep concern that the man found guilty of assaulting the groom’s father last July has since been nominated for a public position in the Ministry of Physical Planning and Works in Kanchanpur in western Nepal. “The NDC, NHRC and OHCHR urge the authorities to abide by the verdict regarding the above appointment, to enforce both sentences without delay and to undertake specific measures to promote social awareness on the issue of caste-base discrimination,” according to today’s statement. read more

UNs global network of biosphere reserves grows by 18 new sites

Oti-Keran/Oti-Mandouri in Togo, which encompasses various ecosystems, including shrubland, savannas, forest galleries and grasslands. The United Nations today added 18 new sites to its global list of biosphere reserves, bringing the total to 581 in 114 different countries, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reported. The International Coordinating Council of UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB), meeting in the German city of Dresden, added sites in Lithuania, Maldives, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Togo for the first time to the World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR). Biosphere reserves are places recognized by MAB where local communities are actively involved in governance and management, research, education, training and monitoring at the service of both socio-economic development and biodiversity conservation. They are thus sites for experimenting with and learning about sustainable development, UNESCO said. UNESCO said the new sites are:Bras d’Or Lake, in Nova Scotia, Canada, which encompasses a saltwater estuary watershed “inland sea” with three passages to the Atlantic Ocean. Baa Atoll, Maldives, which harbours globally significant biodiversity in its numerous reefs. Santana Madeira, Portugal, which is the first biosphere reserve in the Madeira Archipelago. Despite an active tourist industry, agriculture dominates the economy of local communities. Mujib, Jordan, which is part of the Dead Sea basin and Jordan Rift Valley landscape. Mao’er Mountain in China, which features a mountain landscape of exceptional scenery, with peaks reaching more than 2,000 metres above sea level. Songor, Ghana, which is characterized by a unique combination of brackish/estuarine, freshwater and marine ecosystems with mangroves, islands and small patches of community-protected forests. Blekinge Archipelago in Sweden, which includes most of the coastal areas and archipelagos of Blekinge, containing a variety of islands and islets. Volga-Akhtuba floodplain in the Russian Federation, which represents a mosaic structure of different landscapes, with high-yielding floodplain meadows, spawning grounds, oak groves and internationally important wetlands. Berlangas archipelago, Portugal, which includes the Berlangas, a group of small islands and rocks, and the city of Peniche on the mainland. St. Mary’s, Saint Kitts and Nevis, which comprises cloud forests, mangroves and coral reefs. Zuvintas, Lithuania, which includes lakes, wetlands, mires, peat bogs, and pine tree stands. Nedre Dalälven River Landscape in Sweden, which covers 308,000 hectares with a mixture of wetlands, rivers, lakes, flood plains and productive forests. Ramot Menashe in Israel, which encompasses a mosaic of ecological systems that represent the Mediterranean Basin’s version of the global “evergreen sclerophyllous forests, woodlands and scrub” ecosystem types. Bura’a, Yemen, which is a rugged mountainous area intersected by several deep valleys rich in rare, vulnerable and endemic plant species. Corredor Biológico Nevados de Chillán-Laguna del Laja in Chile, which is located in the northern part of the Patagonia region and is a global biodiversity hotspot. 30 June 2011The United Nations today added 18 new sites to its global list of biosphere reserves, bringing the total to 581 in 114 different countries, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) reported. Roztochya, Ukraine, which covers a total area of 74,800 hectares with agriculture, stock-breeding and fish farming as its main economic activities. Trifinio Fraternidad Biosphere Reserve, which stretches over parts of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. It is home to many endemic species that inhabit the tropical humid forest. Meanwhile, Cat Tien is the new name of the former Dong Nai Biosphere Reserve in Viet Nam, which was designated in 2001. Two new core zones have been added to the site, bringing its total area to 966,563 hectares, UNESCO said. Australia also withdrew Macquarie Island from the WNBR because it is uninhabited by humans and human presence is a criterion for inclusion in the network. read more

EPRLF to remain in the TNA and TPC

The Eelam People’s Revolutionary Liberation Front (EPRLF) will remain a constituent of both the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and the Tamil People’s Council (TPC).A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the EPRLF’s central committee which was presided by Suresh Premachandran, the party’s leader, in Vavuniya of the Northern Province, The Hindu newspaper reported. Premachandran, who was the spokesperson of the TNA’s parliamentary party till August, is one of the key figures of the TPC, which is headed by Chief Minister of the Northern Province C.V. Wigneswaran along with two others. After the EPRLF leader’s defeat in the August parliamentary elections, there were reports that the TNA might make him MP through the national list but his name did not figure in the list. The latest development comes at a time when the TNA leadership is said to be following activities of the TPC. Even though TNA’s chief R. Sampanthan has not openly disapproved the TPC’s formation, he is of the view that when efforts are on to find a solution to the Tamil question, no Tamil party or group should do anything that will eventually provoke elements, claiming to represent the interests of Sinhalese-Buddhist nationalists, to derail the entire process.A press release issued by the EPRLF said that even though the party, in July 2014, mooted the idea of forming a Tamil National Council and had handed over its resolution to Sampanthan and leaders of other constituents of the TNA, no action was taken by the Alliance’s chief. Justifying its decision to join the TPC, the EPRLF said this was done with a view to mobilising people beyond politics. It did not mean that the EPRLF had quit the TNA, the statement added. read more

Police say the vehicle was clocked on radar in excess of 130 km/h. The man was charged and his driver’s license was suspended. His car has also been seized for seven days.He is scheduled to appear in a Guelph courtroom on May 16.

Earths oceans and frozen spaces paying price for taking the heat of

According to the IPCC report on the ocean and cryosphere – the frozen parts of the planet – global warming has already reached one degree Celsius above the pre-industrial level. This temperature rise, which the 195-strong Member State body attributes to greenhouse gas emissions, has resulted in “profound consequences” for people and the planet.“The world’s ocean and cryosphere have been ‘taking the heat’ from climate change for decades, and consequences for nature and humanity are sweeping and severe,” said Ko Barrett, Vice-Chair of the IPCC.In total, 670 million people who live in the world’s high mountain regions and around the same number in low-lying coastal zones “depend directly” on the planet’s oceans and frozen resources, the IPCC notes. In addition, four million people live permanently in the Arctic region, and small island developing states are home to 65 million people.In a bid to protect them, their surroundings and livelihoods, the IPCC is calling for the introduction of measures to limit global warming “to the lowest possible level”, in line with the internationally agreed 2015 Paris Agreement.“If we reduce emissions sharply, (the) consequences for people and their livelihoods will still be challenging, but potentially more manageable for those who are most vulnerable”, said Hoesung Lee, Chair of the IPCC. “The open sea, the Arctic, the Antarctic and the high mountains may seem far away to many people. But we depend on them and are influenced by them directly and indirectly in many ways – for weather and climate, for food and water, for energy, trade, transport, recreation and tourism, for health and wellbeing, for culture and identity.” According to the IPCC report, average sea level rise is now 3.6 millimetres a year. This is more than twice as fast as during the last century and levels could rise more than a metre by 2100 “if greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase strongly”. The result is likely to be more extreme sea level events that occur during high tides and intense storms. “Indications are that with any degree of additional warming, events that occurred once per century in the past, will occur every year by mid-century in many regions, increasing risks for many low-lying coastal cities and small islands”, the report states.Without major investments in adaptation, these low-lying zones would be exposed to escalating flood risks, and some island nations “are likely to become uninhabitable”.Glaciers could shrink 80 per cent, by 2100Highlighting the importance of coordinated, ambitious and urgent action to mitigate the impact of global warming, the IPCC report also warns that glaciers, snow, ice and permafrost are declining “and will continue to do so”.In Europe, eastern Africa, the tropical Andes and Indonesia, smaller glaciers are projected to lose more than 80 per cent of their current ice mass by 2100, under worst emission scenarios.This is likely to increase hazards for people, for example through landslides, avalanches, rockfalls and floods, in addition to farmers and hydroelectric power producers downstream.“Changes in water availability will not just affect people in these high mountain regions, but also communities much further downstream”, said Panmao Zhai, Co-Chair of IPCC’s Working Group I.  Sea ice getting thinner every monthOn sea ice, the IPCC report underscores that the extent of Arctic ice has declined every month, “and it is getting thinner”. If global warming can be kept to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the Arctic ocean would only be ice-free in September once in every 100 years, the study suggests. At two degrees Celsius, however, this would occur up to one year in three.“Some people living in the Arctic, especially indigenous peoples, have already adjusted their traveling and hunting activities to the seasonality and safety of land, ice and snow conditions, and some coastal communities have planned for relocation,” the report states.Permafrost ‘warming and thawing’ Turning to permafrost – ground that has been frozen for many years – the IPCC suggests that it is “warming and thawing and widespread permafrost thaw is projected to occur in the 21st Century”. Even if global warming is limited to well below two degrees Celsius below pre-industrial levels, around a quarter of the permafrost down to three to four metres depth, will thaw by 2100. If greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase strongly, there is a potential that around 70 per cent this near-surface permafrost could be lost.  In writing the report, more than 100 authors from 36 countries assessed the latest scientific literature on the ocean and cryosphere, basing their findings on some 7,000 scientific publications.  It will provide input for world leaders gathering in forthcoming climate and environment negotiations, such as the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Chile, in December. “The ocean is warmer, more acidic and less productive”, the report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states. “Melting glaciers and ice sheets are causing sea level rise, and coastal extreme events are becoming more severe.”🌊#IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing ClimateOur Ocean and Cryosphere – They sustain us.

Angry Birds Comes to NetbooksLaptops

first_imgIt’s shaping up to be a big week for everyone’s favorite sling-shooting fowl. Earlier today we took note of the fact that Angry Birds is set to hit the PlayStation Network. Now it seems that the wildly popular mobile gaming phenomenon will also be making its way onto laptops everywhere, courtesy of Intel’s AppUp store. Rovio created an exclusive version of the game, which is available through the Intel store and AppUp storefronts from Best Buy, Best Buy Canada, Future Shop, Dixons, Asus, Croma, HSN, NewEgg, TigerDirect, and more. The app store runs on Windows XP and 7. The PC version of the game is quite a bit pricier than its mobile counterpart, running $9.99 — though AppUp is offering a limited time discount of $4.99. Probably best to get on that, ASAP, considering all of the paid work you’re likely to miss playing the thing.last_img read more

Florida approves bill allowing teachers to carry guns

first_imgFlorida approves bill allowing teachers to carry guns The aim of the measure is to prevent school shootings but opponents say it’s a dangerous move. By AFP 129 Comments Thursday 2 May 2019, 8:10 AM Share69 Tweet Email3 FLORIDA’S HOUSE OF Representatives has approved a bill allowing teachers to carry firearms – a controversial step whose effectiveness in countering school shootings remains unproven.The aim of the measure, which was previously approved by the state’s Senate and will now need to be approved by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, is to prevent school shootings such as one that left 17 people dead at a high school in Parkland, Florida in February 2018.Supporters of the bill – which permits teachers to carry firearms on school campuses on a voluntary basis after they have completed 144 hours of training – say armed teachers could save lives in the event of a school shooting.But its opponents warn of the danger of accidents among teachers who would effectively be tasked with policing as well as education, and who, in the event of a school shooting, could be mistaken for a shooter by law enforcement.Arming teachers is a recipe for disaster—a reckless plan which will complicate active-shooter situations. It’s especially foolish that we might waste critical anti-terrorism funding to do it. The real solution is to keep guns out of the wrong hands. #EndGunViolence https://t.co/dfEpuqV5Tn— Rep.

This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  Feature | Mobile C-Arms | March 14, 2012 | Dave Fornell Advances in Mobile C-Arms This article appeared as the introduction to a chart on mobile C-arms in the March 2012 issue. The Newest Systems on the Market• Ziehm introduced a new version of the Ziehm Vision RFD mobile C-arm in June 2011. The hybrid edition system has a liquid cooling system that allows imaging over long periods of time. It is offered as an alternative to fixed angiography system installations in hybrid ORs. It features flat-panel technology and delivers distortion-free images with more than 16,000 shades of gray and a resolution of 1.5 K x 1.5 K pixels.The detector is not affected by magnetic fields, so it also produces distortion-free, detail-rich images when close to magnetic resonance (MR) scanners. The square display format creates a visible area with up to 60 percent more information per X-ray than conventional image intensifiers.It uses a compact, 20 kW monoblock generator with a rotating anode, which guarantees a variable pulse width between 4 and 50 milliseconds for very clear images. It can image up to 25 images per second, enabling high-quality X-rays of moving objects, such as a beating heart. It also has a contrast injector interface, which synchronizes injection of contrast media with the imaging process.The Ziehm Vision RFD also comes with SmartVascular, Ziehm Imaging’s software that simplifies imaging in vascular surgery. SmartVascular introduces a new workflow for fast results. It enables surgeons to create a DSA at any time without having to use the touchscreen. It automates all process steps from DSA to roadmapping, allowing vascular procedures to be planned with minimum amounts of contrast media and shorter fluoroscopy times. The new software is compatible with all Ziehm Vision C-arms.• During RSNA 2011, Philips Healthcare introduced the Veradius Neo mobile C-arm with a flat panel detector. It was designed in collaboration with surgeons from around the world and features a completely new C-arc geometry, specially designed to accommodate even obese patients with increased maneuverability. It also offers flexible dose management settings.To simplify communication between surgical team members and make it easy to quickly move to a requested position, the Veradius Neo now has a color-coded geometry. Once in the desired position, the system’s advanced flat panel detector technology provides high-quality images. Surgeons can use these undistorted images to help place screws and other devices with precision.The flat panel detector on the Veradius Neo provides high-contrast DSA runs and roadmap guidance. The device’s advanced X-ray generation technology allows distortion-free visualization of dynamic anatomy in challenging procedures like transaortic aneurysm repair.

The system design includes a number of new features, including a high-resolution flat detector that rivals standard X-ray images in a mini fluoroscopy system. The new system is also designed to have a greater range of motion in a more ergonomic friendly design for ease of positioning and greater surgical access, as well as new image processing for high image quality. The system also offers new image processing algorithms.In September 2011, Ziehm Imaging acquired mini C-arm maker OrthoScan Inc. The company produces mini C-arms for the orthopedic extremity imaging market. Ziehm said OrthoScan’s addition complements its full-sized C-arm offerings, allowing service to different surgical segments and allowing for close cooperation to jointly serve customers and open new business opportunities for both companies.

This is especially true in cardiovascular surgery, endovascular repairs and peripheral vascular interventions. While the best imaging quality is offered by fixed angiography imaging systems, mobile C-arm image quality is rapidly catching up.Small stents and other devices can be difficult to visualize, so for adequate visualization, a mobile C-arm must be able to produce high-contrast images of dynamic anatomy. This requirement has led to development of systems that offer flat panel detectors rather than image intensifiers. They offer high-contrast digital subtraction angiography (DSA) runs and roadmap guidance.X-ray dose remains a concern for the surgical environment, in particular for long, minimally invasive procedures. Newer systems offer dose management features that enable lower dose imaging, such as beam filters and technology enabling sharper pulses to support excellent dose efficiency.GE Healthcare announced an initiative in December 2011 to develop and promote the use of radiation dose lowering technologies. Among its initiatives is the Brilliant program, designed to help mobile C-arm users manage radiation dose while producing optimum images to enable great patient care. The educational program includes C-arm dose management classes, an iPad application and reference tools. Since its introduction about one year ago, more than 2,000 people have downloaded the OEC Radiation Safety iGuide app. Advances in long-length digital radiography are creating opportunities for visualization during spinal surgery, as well as pre- and post-operatively.

Photo courtesy of ToshibaUltrasound has become an essential tool for diagnostic and procedural uses in the critical care environment. The May issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia outlines a new set of basic ultrasound learning skills developed specifically for use in anesthesiology-critical care medicine (ACCM) training programs.An expert panel of the Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists (SOCCA) outlines a set of “standard, evidence-based clinical indications, learning goals, and competencies for the use of ultrasound in ACCM.” The lead author of the training recommendations is R. Eliot Fagley, M.D., of Virginia Mason Medical Center, Seattle.Ultrasound in the Critical Care Unit — What Skills Do ACCM Specialists Need?With advances in technology and equipment, ultrasound has found new uses for rapid assessment at the bedside in many areas of the hospital, including the critical care unit. Many critical care practitioners, including ACCM physicians — anesthesiologists with subspecialty training in critical care medicine — have undergone formal ultrasound training programs. “Immediate bedside availability of ultrasound resources can dramatically improve the ability of critical care physicians to care for critically ill patients,” Fagley and coauthors wrote.The SOCCA expert panel was tasked with developing learning goals to provide the next generation of ACCM specialists with the knowledge and skills they need to use ultrasound-based strategies in the critical care unit. An initial survey found that most ACCM training programs offer some type of ultrasound training, although many did not yet include it as a formal element of the curriculum.Based on review of the research evidence and expert opinion, the panel outlines learning goals and expected competencies in four main areas: vascular, abdominal, and thoracic/pulmonary ultrasound and cardiac echocardiography: • Vascular ultrasound plays an important role in critical care procedures requiring access to blood vessels and the circulatory system. Ultrasound is used to guide needle and catheter placement for various procedures and to aid in diagnosis of vascular conditions such as venous thromboembolism (blood clots blocking blood flow). • Abdominal ultrasound can help to diagnose a wide range of abdominal conditions—for example, fluid or blood collections, ruptured aneurysms, or kidney or liver failure. It also plays a key role in rapid assessment of trauma victims. • Thoracic/pulmonary ultrasound also plays an important role in trauma assessment, as well as in evaluating pneumonia or other conditions affecting the chest and lungs. • Cardiac echocardiography can provide essential information on the heart and its function in critically ill patients. Anesthesiology-critical care specialists should be competent in transthoracic echocardiography ultrasound (through the chest wall), including rapid evaluation of patients in shock or after trauma; and have basic skills in transesophgeal echocardiography (using a probe placed in the esophagus).In each area, the recommendations define expectations for levels of training and mastering ultrasound interpretation and technical skills. They recommend that all residents perform at least 50 ultrasound examinations during their training, each reviewed with a local expert.”Anesthesia-critical care medicine training should have definitive expectations and performance standards for basic critical care ultrasound interpretation,” according to Fagley and the SOCCA expert panel. They believe their recommended learning goals will help in ensuring that ACCM specialists have the knowledge and skills they need for effective use of ultrasound in their critical care practice.For more information: http://socca.org/ FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

A close game in the first half, the 49ers took it to the Cardinals over the game’s final 30 minutes. In all, receiver Michael Crabtree scored a pair of touchdowns while running back Frank Gore tallied one. As part of their respective celebrations, each player threw the football into the stands. Comments   Share   Fortunately for both Crabree and Gore, their contracts are paying them hefty sums. However, that probably won’t do much to dull the pain. If only they would have scored fewer touchdowns that day… As it turns out, footballs are expensive.According to CSNBayArea.com, the players were fined for tossing the footballs away.The well-meaning gesture came at a price, though. Both players were fined $10,500 by the NFL, according to a league spokesman.The league considers it fan safety issue to have players throw football into the stands, as opposed to handing the ball or tossing it to a fan, which is allowed. The NFL does not want fans fighting over a football. Top Stories last_img read more

first_imgBeyond ‘The Walking Dead,’ Lauren Cohan is ready for change by Alicia Rancilio, The Associated Press Posted Aug 16, 2018 10:46 am PDT Last Updated Aug 16, 2018 at 2:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this July 26, 2018 photo, actress Lauren Cohan poses for a portrait in New York to promote her film “Mile 22.” (Photo by Brian Ach/Invision/AP) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Even battling zombies day in and day out can get repetitive.After eight seasons of fighting for her life on AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Lauren Cohan knew she needed a change when she felt a little too comfortable with the job. That’s why she’s saying goodbye to the role, though producers are leaving the door open should she change her mind.“Eight years is a really long time to be in those emotional depths and it’s really fun for me because I never thought about drama as much when I started this career and I always kind of assumed I’d do like light fare,” she told The Associated Press in a recent interview.She has always fought against the idea of being too comfortable, in work and life overall. There was a time she scratched that itch by moving into new houses.“This is a much better way of doing it,” Cohan laughed.Cohan, 36, will appear in the first half of season nine, premiering in October. She considers the offer to return “a gift.”“There’s a chance for me to still explore the Maggie character and it’s going to be fun to see if that can be done,” she said.She gave the show lots of props (“‘Walking Dead’ is responsible for more than I can say”) but is looking forward to new film and TV projects.The first is “Mile 22,” starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Peter Berg with the hope of becoming a film franchise. It follows a secret CIA task force that must retrieve and transport an intelligence asset through 22 miles of hostile territory. It’s fast-paced and intense, but also funny.Cohan said the cast was encouraged to improvise in some scenes.“It’s fun to play the witty dialogue and I always love in Pete’s movies how there are a lot of normal people with interesting conversations,” she said. “It always feels like you’re opening a window into real life.”Next, Cohan will act opposite Scott Foley in ABC’S “Whiskey Cavalier,” debuting in 2019.“The hardest part is not laughing,” she said. In the dramedy, Cohan plays another CIA operative but one who gets matched with Foley’s superstar FBI agent to solve cases.“They have this wonderful ‘Moonlighting’ vibe,” she said. “I’m an emotional character with a steely exterior and the guys are much more in touch with their feelings. It’s funny! It’s great. It’s a really fun departure for me.”___Online:https://abc.go.com/shows/abc-new-shows/news/shows/whiskey-cavalier-coming-soon-to-abc___Follow Alicia Rancilio online at http://www.twitter.com/aliciarlast_img read more

that her conviction could cost her the custody of her son Domestic violence is infinitely complex in part because women sometimes love the men who beat them: they don’t want the man jailed; they don’t want to end the relationship; they just want the beatings to end Women can obtain temporary protective orders to keep violent boyfriends or husbands away but these are just pieces of paper unless they’re rigorously enforced Sometimes the orders even trigger a retaliatory attack on the woman and police officers around the country don’t always make such a case a priority — until it becomes a

others would have dreamt of travelling around the globe in 80 days But all the dreams and desires of132 children were brutally interrupted on Tuesday in Peshawar Pakistan when a group of seven Taliban attacked an army-run school A nation is in mourning but its leaders still have to answer if they are ready to fight both terrorism and the radicalism that gives birth to such violence For many this is indeed Pakistan’s 9/11 Notwithstanding the Taliban’s attack on schools and both hard and soft targets in the past the terrorists seem to have crossed a line with this attack The prime minister called an all-party conference and the army chief took a flight to Kabul to demand the extradition of the chief ofthe Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Mullah Fazlullah Interestingly the responsibility for the attack was claimed by the wing of the TTP that has joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the recent past But a more important question is whether those who want to draw attention away from the Taliban will succeed in distracting the government and society at large In a television programme after the incident former military dictator Pervez Musharraf pointed at India as the main culprit behind the attack Indeed he talked about launching a counter-offensive One of his main supporters in the media a television anchor reputed for his close association with military intelligence agencies suggested banning India’s overhead flights Not surprisingly the Lashkar-e-Toiba’s Hafiz Saeed made a similar claim It could possibly be days before others like the retired general Hamid Gul also come out of the woods and begin to sermonise about the main threat being external There may be an internal division within the armed forces regarding what is considered a bigger threat — the internal or external — but there is almost a consensus on India being the key enemy A long trail of blood and bodies but Pakistan’s state and society may not be close to solving its terrorist problem There is a possibility that in the days to come it could all turn into a farce in which military apologists blame politicians politicians blame each other as the environment is just not right to ask tough questions of the military and it ultimately comes to nothing In the coming days people will gradually lose the strength to pointedly ask the military commanders about the logic of supporting terror groups that may not be involved internally but are engaged outside Yet it is the connection between those who create violence internally and externally that keeps the Taliban machine running I remember once asking a senior military commander if the army had an automatic button to ensure that those who joined the good Taliban would not turn bad later He did not seem to have an answer then Nor do they appear to have one now The army chief the man in charge of running the country’s foreign and defence policies has certainly come under a lot of pressure as about 80 per cent of the children in the school were from military families especially junior officers The question is would it move him to stop thinking of some militants as critical pawns for the Afghan chessboard particularly when some of his serving and retired officers sound confident talking about Afghanistan in front of a foreign audience The Peshawar school attack reflects how the policy of maintaining strategic assets is no longer maintainable It has to be dismantled and destroyed including its root cause — the radicalism narrative There are structural deficiencies that Pakistan suffers from such as the poor judicial system and a law enforcement apparatus that fails to bring violent extremists to justice Nevertheless all of these issues pale in front of the need to eliminate symbols of terrorism and radicalism With Hafiz Saeed riding around on horseback in the country’s urban centres like Lahore peddling jihad or the Lal Masjid cleric going about his business in the heart of the capital city or the government and political parties shying away from amending rules on blasphemy the basic mindset that drives violent extremism is likely to continue and even thrive Ask an ordinary but sensitive Pakistani today and they will say they can’t be bothered with any great geopolitical game and would be happy with the gift of life health and education Policymakers of course are a

don’t think the discrepancy is a very big deal Naturally the BJP has grabbed the opportunity and the party general secretary even said that if Lalu cannot keep his house in order how is he going to manage the state The other funny part is that Tejaswi is shown as having passed class IX from the prestigious Delhi Public School at RK Puram But if as alleged he doesn’t want to reveal his real age a
