It is a shocking and heart wrenching case where it is alleged 37 year old Butler stabbed to death her six year old child. Mrs. Clare and the family believes it’s psychological and it seems the officers in the Cayman Islands believe the same as they are holding Tamara, who grew up here in the TCI on mental health laws, which allows for this extended custody while investigations are ongoing. This coming Sunday there is a funeral for Bethany at the King’s Seventh Day Adventist Church. Bethany’s father, Royal Cayman Islands Police Force Sergeant, Lenford Butler has been silent since the October 27th incident.last_img read more

North Carolina Establishes Military Veterans Affairs Agency

first_imgOne priority of North Carolina’s newly established Department of Military and Veterans Affairs will be helping the state’s defense communities resolve land use conflicts with neighboring installations, the agency’s secretary said last week.“We think we’re in pretty good shape in North Carolina, but we still want to make sure we do everything we can to improve the military value of the installations, so if a BRAC does come around, we’re in good shape,” Cornell Wilson Jr. told the Chronicle of Winston-Salem.The new department — which has about 100 employees on staff — also underscores the state’s commitment to veterans, according to Wilson, who retired in 2010 from the Marine Corps at the rank of major general.“It all says a lot about North Carolina,” he said. “We’re serious about our military, serious about our veterans.” Wilson had been Gov. Pat McCrory’s military affairs advisor since October 2013.The secretary said the state has made significant strides supporting its veteran population, including offering in-state college tuition and launching NC Military Pipeline, a pilot program to assist service members transitioning to the civilian marketplace.“There are employers looking to hire veterans but they’re not quite sure how to do it, so we put programs in place to bridge that gap,” Wilson said.North Carolina has the fourth largest military presence in the country with 100,000 active-duty military personnel, and is home to almost 800,000 veterans, giving it the nation’s eighth largest veteran population, according to the story.

Water pumping from Tileru to Koilsagar begins in Mahbubnagar

first_imgMahbubnagar: Pumping of water from Tileru Lift to Koilsagar gravity canal has finally began on Thursday, with officials pumping 315 cusecs of water to Koilsagar reservoir in Mahbubnagar district, which they said is expected to be filled in the next 2-3 days. The Koilsagar reservoir has a capacity of 2 TMC and due to some technical glitches in the motors, the pumping of water was halted for more than one week, due to which the farmers of the Koilsagar ayacut expressed displeasure. However, thanks to the speedy work of the irrigation officials, they repaired the motors in just one day and began pumping of water with one motor on Thursday.

Trump violates constitution accepting foreign favours Democrats

first_imgUS president Donald Trump greets a worker after a hurricane response briefing at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in Washington, US on 6 June 2018. Photo: ReutersLawyers representing nearly 200 Democrats in Congress plan to argue in federal court that president Donald Trump is violating the Constitution by accepting foreign state favours without first seeking congressional approval.The case cites as foreign government favours Chinese government trademarks for Trump companies, payments for hotel room stays and event space rentals by representatives of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, and proceeds from Chinese or Emirati-linked government purchases of office space in Trump Tower.Ethics experts say the constitutional emoluments clause was created by the Founding Fathers to ensure that government officials act with the interests of the American public in mind instead of their own pocketbooks. Since then, it has been applied to the lowest of government of officials up to the president without a court challenge.”This argument on Thursday will essentially put to the test the proposition that no one is above the law, not even the president,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat who is leading the effort. “He’s thumbed his nose at the plain text and in doing so he’s thumbed his nose at the American people.”Unlike prior presidents, Trump chose not to divest from his assets and he remains the owner of the Trump Organization, a sprawling business empire with 550 entities in more than 20 countries that include branded hotels, golf courses, licensing deals and other interests. His Washington, DC, hotel just steps from the White House has become a magnet for foreign governments, including groups tied to Kuwait, Bahrain, Turkey, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.The District of Columbia case is one of three that argues the president is violating the emoluments clause, which bans accepting benefits from foreign governments unless a majority of both houses of Congress consent.But Thursday’s case is different in that the plaintiffs in the suit – members of Congress – are mentioned in the clause itself, and they believe that Congress not only has a right but is required, as part of their jobs, to weigh in on potential emoluments such as a $6.5 million condo purchase by the Qatari government or a Chinese-government owned company’s investment in a project that will include a Trump-branded hotel and golf course in Indonesia.”These members of Congress are injured every time the president accepts a foreign government benefit, whether that benefit is a trademark from China or proceeds from a government buying space in a Trump property,” said Brianne Gorod, the non-profit Constitutional Accountability Center’s chief counsel who will argue the plaintiffs’ case Thursday.Separate emoluments cases in Maryland and New York are based on a claim of competitive standing, arguing that the president’s businesses are being used by lobbyists, government officials and political groups to curry favour with Trump, and thus have an unfair advantage over other businesses. The New York case was dismissed and is being appealed. Justice Department lawyers have argued that such business activity, including hotel room stays, isn’t an emolument.Thursday’s arguments before US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan will be solely focused on whether the lawmakers have standing to sue the president by showing they’ve suffered harm from the alleged violation of the clause.In papers supporting the plaintiffs’ suit, nearly two dozen former national security officials, including Madeleine Albright and Chuck Hagel, said that “allowing private business deals with foreign governments to go undisclosed, unapproved, and unmonitored creates substantial danger that national security or foreign policy decisions (could) be motivated by something other than the public’s interest.”The Justice Department, which has filed for dismissal of the case, declined to comment. Its lawyers argued in court papers that the 198 Democrats suing the president are not being injured by him at all but by their colleagues in Congress, who have refused to take up the emoluments issue.The Trump Organization did not respond to a request for comment.”The enforcement of the emoluments clause is the only way we can preserve our ability to do our job,” Blumenthal said. “If Congress does not have standing, no one does.”last_img read more

Houston City Council Set To Vote On Changes To Campaign Finance Ordinance

first_imgUntil now, candidates for city offices could collect $5,000 from individual donors and $10,000 from political action committees for their election every two years.But last fall, Houstonians voted to extend terms for mayor, city council and controller to four years, so the council is now looking to adjust the campaign finance rules.“It’s the same rules but split up, a four-year term into two year,” said Jack Christie, who chairs the council’s budget committee. It came together last week to discuss the proposed ordinance.But because terms are now four years, it would double the amount candidates can raise per election cycle.Council member Michael Kubosh didn’t like the idea of breaking it up into two fundraising cycles. He said most people don’t decide to run four years before an election.“I think it benefits those who have big contributors lists,” he said. “And it works against those who don’t.”Another concern is that it puts pressure on non-incumbent candidates to start campaigning early.The ordinance would also raise the amount self-funded candidates can reimburse themselves.For example, a candidate for a district city council position who loaned himself money would get up to $50,000 back from campaign contributions. Currently the maximum is $5,000.Some worry this will give an advantage to wealthier candidates, who are able to self-finance their campaigns.But Brandon Rottinghaus, political scientist at the University of Houston, said that doesn’t have to be the case.“If you are somebody who has less means but who has still the desire to be able to jump into the race, having the opportunity to be able to reimburse yourself for some early investment in your own campaign is probably something that will encourage people to self-fund,” the professor said.The council is set to vote on the ordinance on Wednesday. 00:00 /01:46 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen X Sharelast_img read more

Take Two now expects GAAP net revenue to range from $2.83 to $2.93 billion, and GAAP net income is expected to range from $425 to $454 million.Earlier on Monday, President Trump appeared to blame video games for this weekend’s mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. “We must stop the glorification of violence in our society,” Trump said in prepared remarks Monday morning. “This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace.”Take Two executives didn’t address trump’s remarks during the company’s earnings call, but Zelnick repudiated them in an interview with Baron’s Monday. “Blaming entertainment is irresponsible,” he told the publication. “The fact is entertainment is consumed world-wide… but gun violence is uniquely American. So we need to address the real issues.”Trump’s remarks not only depressed share prices for Take Two during trading hours, but also Activision Blizzard, which is reporting earnings this coming Thursday. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The Indonesian pineapple industry is taking steps

first_img The Indonesian pineapple industry is taking steps to access the U.S. market, with a government request for the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to authorize imports of its fresh pineapple fruit for consumption in the country.In response, the APHIS has drafted a pest risk assessment of the category. This document lists potential pests likely to remain on the commodity upon importation if no mitigations are applied, says the USDA.Common insects that infest pineapples are mealybugs, scale and pineapple red mites, notes the International Tropical Fruits Network.After the APHIS completes such assessments, it shares its information with the public.This data allows stakeholders to review and provide comments on draft risk assessments or pest lists. Afterward, the USDA can assess the feedback before making an official decision, the department adds. July 08 , 2019 The draft pest risk assessment for pineapples from Indonesia will be available for review and comments for 30 days.After that time, the USDA will make an official decision on whether or not to grant the nation market access.If the Indonesian government’s efforts are successful, the U.S. would become the second North American country the nation exports fresh pineapple to, according to global sourcing platform Tridge.Presently, Indonesia ranks eighth in terms of production for the international pineapple market, it adds.Specifically, the site’s latest figures show that it produces 1.4 million metric tons of the fruit annually.Click here to view the pest risk assessment or submit comments.

I was therefore intrigued to see what the Cabin Ma

first_imgI was therefore intrigued to see what the Cabin Max bag could do for a light traveller like me, and so last week I took it on its inaugural flight.The bag is designed to fit the maximum carry-on luggage dimensions of 55x40x20cm, which means it even comes within Ryanair’s measly cabin-baggage allowance (as long as you don’t load it with more than 10kg of gear).*The result is a sizable 44 litres of space to play with – quite a generous amount.The bag has two compartments; a large one for the main bulk of your clothes, and a smaller one with various zip and mesh pockets, which keep all your smaller items nice and neat.On top is a handy carry handle; there are two adjustable shoulder straps, and the back has some light padding. There are also two quick release crush straps on the sides to help squeeze all your gear in if you need to. The bag fitted easily in the overhead lockers as well as under the seat in front.Zips seemed tough enough and you can open the bag completely up like a suitcase which makes packing and unpacking a breeze.In terms of space – I had plenty to spare. Admittedly it was just a three day trip, but I think I could hold enough for a week-long journey with careful packing.And the downsides? Well – the Cabin Max’s cuboidal shape means it’s not the sexiest bag on the plane. It’s not going to win any style competitions compared to a sleek, silver Samsonite Sky Wheeler.But then you can carry much more in the Cabin Max, and because it’s soft-sided rather than a rigid shell, it can be easily squeezed into cramped spaces. So I’m happy to sacrifice looking flash for the Cabin Max’s extra space and much lower weight (it’s well under 1kg when empty).Overall – at a price of £29.95 – I can recommend the Cabin Max as an excellent bag for those who want to travel light and avoid those ever increasing hold luggage fees.Buy the Cabin Max Bag from Amazon_*_NOTE: Flybe have a max cabin bag size of 50x35x23cm so if your bag is full to capacity you may have trouble.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map I’ve always tried to travel as light as possible.

up to 150 chairs each year said General Services Manager Ralph Marquez who oversees patient equipmentAt $550 each that could be as much as $82500 a year but a small part of the clinic’s budget"Yes it’s a financial burden to us from that standpoint but it’s also a service we provide" Marquez said "And if the patient you know truly comes first sometimes that’s the expense of the business"Because the clinic does not want to restrict the wheelchairs from leaving the campus the clinic’s courier service rounds them up weekly mostly from hotels and any other places that alert them But Marquez said the chairs can sometimes can travel great distances"We’ve gotten calls from Orlando Airport Goodwill up in Duluth had one of our chairs and luckily we were able to retrieve that one We’ve had them in

administration"Those general fund dollars really are the base support for the institution" he saidOther than research revenue tuition and fees contribute 25 percent of NDSU’s budget with the rest comprised of auxiliary revenues from bookstore sales housing and dining services and giftsResearch grants are restricted and cannot be used for other purposes so they cannot help close a budget gap Bollinger said"Those other research funds can’t offset these cuts" he saidAs legislators began their budget writing in January cuts to campuses were anticipated in the range of 15 to 20 percent for 2017-19—but a group of distinguished professors recently warned that the magnitude will be 20 to 30 percent resulting in what they said would be "long-lasting perhaps irreversible impacts"Any cuts

pass a higher education budget and differences in the House and Senate versions will need to be resolved by a conference committee"Things are still really really fluid on almost everything" Bollinger said "We really have a long way to go in a short amount of time"House and Senate bill versions sometimes vary considerably including whether campuses will be permitted to raise tuition 3 percent per year as the Senate would allow or 4 percent as the House wouldThe State Board of Higher Education will determine later whether tuition will increase NDSU which more than a year ago adopted a hiring freeze in response to the budget pressures will need to offer fewer classes resulting in delayed graduations and larger class sizes administrators including President Dean Bresciani have saidWith

concern"There’s a lot of concern at NDSU" said Kathryn Gordon faculty senate president and an associate professor of psychology "We’re really worried about how this will impact us"So far faculty at
