UNbacked probe into Hariri killings seeks information held by Hizbollah leader

The prosecutor of the United Nations-backed court set up to try suspects in the murders of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and 22 others has asked the country’s authorities to hand over all information allegedly held by Hizbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah pertaining to the 2005 attack. Mr. Nasrallah held a press conference on 9 August during which he offered information to assist the investigation, and showed a video that he claimed implicates Israel in the attack. “In line with its mandate, the Office of the Prosecutor has requested the Lebanese authorities to provide all the information in possession of Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah,” the Special Tribunal for Lebanon stated in a news release. “This request includes the video material that was shown on television during the press conference, as well any other material that would be of assistance to the Office of the Prosecutor in unveiling the truth,” it added. The Office of the Prosecutor also invited Mr. Nasrallah to “use his authority to facilitate its investigation.” The Tribunal is an independent body that was set up in The Hague in the Netherlands, following a probe by an independent international commission after an earlier UN mission found that Lebanon’s own inquiry into the massive car bombing in February 2005 was seriously flawed and that Syria was primarily responsible for the political tensions that preceded the attack. The investigation of the murders continues under the guidance of the Tribunal’s Prosecutor, Daniel Bellemare, who reported in December that the probe “is making progress and proceeding at full pace.” He stressed that the ultimate goal of the Tribunal, beyond finding out the truth and ensuring that justice is done, is to help Lebanon and its people in their continued efforts to further promote the rule of law and fight impunity. 11 August 2010The prosecutor of the United Nations-backed court set up to try suspects in the murders of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri and 22 others has asked the country’s authorities to hand over all information allegedly held by Hizbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah pertaining to the 2005 attack. read more

Islamic State was initially unaware of Easter attacks says top official

About 48 hours after the April 21 attacks, which claimed over 250 lives, the IS took credit for the bombings, with the group’s Amaq news agency releasing a visual of the Sri Lankan suicide bombers, standing by a black flag of the IS, apparently pledging allegiance. The faces of all but one — the alleged ring leader Zahran Hashim — were masked. At the time, IS analysts had pointed to the “delay” in the claim, with some of them even terming it “uncharacteristic” of the terror group. Significantly, investigators have traced Mr. Milhan’s involvement in two cases that are now considered important precursors to the Easter killings. The first involves the shooting of two policemen, in November 2018, at a checkpoint in the eastern Batticaloa district from where Zahran Hashim hailed and the other being the shooting of a Minister’s coordinating secretary in March, in the central town of Mawanella. The secretary, who was seriously injured, is being treated in hospital.Mr. Milhan’s name was also mentioned in a memo dated April 11, sent from a top Sri Lankan police official to the security services, warning of possible suicide attacks targeting catholic churches. The letter is proof of prior intelligence — including information shared by India — having been available.Investigators have established that Mr. Milhan left the country on April 17 — about a week after the letter was circulated, and four days before the deadly bombings. “We are hoping to retrieve Milhan’s phone and laptop from the authorities in Saudi, to cull out more evidence of his role in the plot,” the official said. Meanwhile, suspects being interrogated have been providing more insights into how their radical collective functioned, according to investigators. By Meera SrinivasanThe Islamic State (IS) may have claimed responsibility for the Easter terror attacks in Sri Lanka, but its chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was initially not aware of the horrific serial bombings, according to a top official familiar with the probe. The ongoing investigation in Sri Lanka has revealed that a local Islamist radical, who is an IS sympathiser, had contacted the IS leadership after the attacks. “Through a third party, he [the suspect, now in custody] had pleaded with the IS for recognising the blasts carried out by jihadists, who had ‘sacrificed’ their lives,” the senior official told The Hindu. The interrogations have revealed Zahran Hashim’s “dictatorial tendencies”. “The youth he drew, including most other suicide bombers for the Easter mission, were keen on fighting foreign wars for the IS — in Syria or Iraq. But Zahran had told them ‘nothing doing’, and that this assignment in Sri Lanka was as holy and important,” the official said, citing the interrogations. “It seems that Zahran did not listen to any of them and would only have it his way.”In the two months since the Easter attacks, authorities have initiated at least three investigations — one led by the police’s Criminal InvestigationDepartment (CID) and the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID); one by a panel appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena comprising a former Supreme Court judge, a former IGP and a former bureaucrat; and a third, by a parliamentary committee of legislators.Based on a report submitted by the President-appointed panel, the Attorney General, on Thursday, directed the acting IGP — the IGP was sent on compulsory leave following the blasts — to initiate criminal investigations against nine senior police officers, who allegedly failed to prevent the Easter Sunday attacks despite prior warnings. (Courtesy The Hindu) Sri Lankan investigators are yet to find concrete evidence of whether the local jihadists were directly connected to the IS. “They were all sympathisers of the IS, but it remains unclear how they maintained links with the IS, if in fact they did. Now we have also come across some other radicals here who are supporters of the IS,” the official said, requesting anonymity, due to the sensitivity of the ongoing probe.Investigators also expect to draw out more specific information in the coming weeks from five Sri Lankan suspects who were deported from Saudi Arabia last week. One of them, Mohamed Milhan, is believed to have been chosen the likely successor of Zahran Hashim, to lead the radical National Thowheed Jama’ath (NTJ). read more

Human rights in Cambodia could be undermined by economic policies UN

Government policies to reduce poverty in Cambodia, one of the poorest countries in the world, are not in line with the country’s obligations to improve human rights, a situation that calls for informed public debate, a senior United Nations official says in a report released today.”Policies and strategies allegedly aimed at reducing poverty have been developed without sufficient regard for Cambodia’s obligations under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and are hampered by problems of disbursement in the education and health sectors,” UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for human rights in Cambodia, Peter Leuprecht, says.”Many problems persist in the delivery of the right to housing, such as forced evictions and the lack of adequate shelter for displaced Cambodians.”The National Assembly elections of July 2003, the third since the 1991 peace agreement, was better run and marked an important step in establishing a multiparty democracy. He expresses concern, however, about intimidation, vote buying and violence during the electoral campaign and a “perception among many state actors and institutions that criticism of the government may amount to criminal incitement.”Cambodia was set to become one of the first two least developed countries to complete its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), a move that “may adversely impact on the fulfilment of its human rights obligations,” he says. “(The Special Representative) believes that there is a need for informed public debate on this issue.”Cambodia has an annual per person gross national income of $260 and is ranked 130th out of the 174 countries surveyed in the UN’s “Human Development Report 2003,” Mr. Leuprecht notes.He adds, however, that the way in which trade liberalization in a WTO framework could help to eradicate poverty would depend on its form, pace and sequencing. Present areas of concern included the health-care system and related issues, like intellectual property rights.”Some observers have commented that opening the country’s health-care system to foreign health-care providers and drug companies could damage efforts to establish a viable health-care system for all,” Mr. Leuprecht writes. “The introduction of intellectual property protection might also negatively affect drug prices and availability. The impact of agricultural trade liberalization could also have an adverse effect on rural lifestyles, rural employment and food security.”Large land concessions given to private companies and leading to the illegal clearing of primary forest was eroding the living standards of the 80 per cent of the population who still live in rural areas, he says, but most concessionaires failed to pay the government the required rents.In addition, the justice system was accommodating both anonymity and impunity, especially when the perpetrators were people of political and economic influence, Mr. Leuprecht says, while the administration of justice received inadequate funds.”Judges often hand down significant sentences for very minor offences and prosecutors often seek even higher sentences, while the criminal justice system frequently fails to deal with more grave offences,” he says. read more

For International Literacy Day UN flags key role of reading and writing

This year’s International Literacy Day, observed annually on 8 September, has a special focus on the fundamental relationship between literacy and peace. “We must not allow conflict to deprive children and adults of the crucial opportunity of literacy. Literacy is a fundamental human right, and the foundation of all education and lifelong learning,” the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova, said in her message for the Day, which the agency has been marking for more than four decades.She added that literacy transforms the lives of people, allowing them to make informed choices and empowering them individuals to become agents of change. “Lasting peace depends on the development of literate citizenship and access to education for all. Amidst political upheaval and escalating violence in many parts of the world, literacy must be a priority in the peace-building agenda of all nations,” she stated.Peace and sustainable development are interdependent, and it is crucial for the two to develop and strengthen simultaneously, Ms. Bokova continued. “Literacy is also a development accelerator, enabling societies to grow more inclusively and sustainably,” she noted. “Literacy programmes can become a key component of future development strategies, opening new opportunities and skills for all.”This year marks the end of the UN Literacy Decade, proclaimed in 2002 to galvanize government action worldwide against illiteracy. Over the decade, and despite considerable effort and some major achievements, 775 million people are still considered non-literate, of whom 85 per cent live in 41 countries.As part of the celebrations for the Day, UNESCO has brought together representatives from these 41 countries to examine the lessons learned over the decade and identify ways of accelerating progress to meet the Education for All (EFA) goals established by the world’s governments in 2000 for a 50 per cent improvement in literacy levels worldwide by 2015. The EFA goals are made up expanding early childhood care and education, providing free and compulsory primary education for all, promoting learning and life skills for young people and adults, increasing adult literacy, achieving gender parity and improving the quality of education.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in his message for the Day, said the global movement for education needs a big push, and that is why he will be launching a new Education First initiative later this month.The initiative focuses on three priorities: putting every child in school, improving the quality of learning and fostering global citizenship. “I call on world leaders and all involved with education to join this initiative. The cost of leaving millions of children and young people on the margins of society is far greater than the funds required to reach the international goals for education,” he stated.“Ask any parent what they want for their children, even in war zones and disaster areas where food, medicine and shelter might be considered the highest priorities, and the answer is the same: education for children. Ask any child what he or she wishes to be when they grow up, and the answer is rooted in education. Education is the gateway to fulfilling those aspirations.“A literate world is a more peaceful world, and a more harmonious and healthy world,” Mr. Ban added. “On this observance of International Literacy Day, let us pledge to join together to move the literacy agenda forward.”Other events taking place at UNESCO’s Paris headquarters include the award ceremony for the 2012 UNESCO literacy prizes, and the nomination of singer and songwriter A’salfo as a Goodwill Ambassador to contribute to the agency’s efforts to fight against exclusion, discrimination and injustice. read more

Opinion Cincinnati Bengals a pretender after loss to lowly Texans

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton (14) during a game against the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 11 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. Credit: Courtesy of TNSThe Cincinnati Bengals started the 2015 season 8-0 for the first time in franchise history and have one of the most potent offenses in the NFL. So a matchup with the lowly Houston Texans, who sat at 3-5, should have been no problem, right?Wrong. The Texans continued their domination of the Bengals with a 10-6 win in a defensive struggle in Paul Brown Stadium in front of a roaring jungle of 61,381 Bengals fans on Monday night.The most discouraging part is the Texans did it with their backup quarterback after starter Brian Hoyer was knocked out of the game due to a concussion. Given, T.J. Yates didn’t do much, but his 22-yard rainbow to DeAndre Hopkins pushed the Texans past the Bengals and into the driver’s seat in the lackluster AFC South.Sure it’s just one loss, and sure the Bengals are still 8-1 — sitting pretty in the AFC North with a three-game lead over Pittsburgh — but quarterback Andy Dalton showed a side Bengals fans are all too familiar with. One that should make Bengals fans uneasy every time they think about yelling out, “who dey.”The Red Rifle turned into the “Red Rider B.B. Gun,” as Texans defensive end J.J. Watt called Dalton after the game, and his inability to win in primetime games was on full display again as he pushed his overall primetime record to 4-8.Dalton finished Monday night’s blunder of a game 22-of-38 for 197 yards and an interception for easily his worst performance of the year.The biggest problem is the Bengals looked tentative to take shots deep down the field against the Texans — something they’ve excelled at so far this season. Dalton ranks third in the NFL for average yards per pass, according to NFL statistics, but couldn’t connect on passes downfield on Monday.Perhaps Watt breathing down Dalton’s neck all night had something to do with it. Watt’s pressure against backup right tackle Eric Winston clearly impacted the Bengals’ ability to convert on third-downs, finishing the game at an abysmal 23 percent (3-of-13) conversion rate.Ultimately, the fifth-year quarterback will take the brunt of the blame for the loss to the Texans, but realistically, Dalton isn’t the only one to blame. Tight end Tyler Eifert dropped several passes that he normally catches and receiver A.J. Green fumbled away the Bengals’ final hopes in the last minute. Pair that with the Bengals’ inability to run the football — 21 carries for 73 yards on Monday (3.5 average) — and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.The lackluster performance comes at the worst possible time for the Bengals, as the team’s next contest is on the road against the red-hot Arizona Cardinals in another primetime matchup on Sunday night.The question is, can the Bengals match up under the lights and show the NFL what they are truly made of? Or will they fry in the desert next week against the team’s former quarterback and possible league MVP Carson Palmer? Also, looking even further, the Bengals still have key division tilts against the Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, as well as a Week 16 matchup with the Broncos in Mile High Stadium.Despite the 8-0 start, the Bengals could very well lose half of their second-half games.  Sure, some might say I’m overreacting, crossing the Bengals off my list of Super Bowl contenders after Week 10. But my instincts and my gut tells me to not trust this bunch until they prove they can consistently win in primetime games, let alone in the playoffs. read more

Atlas Copcos new Scooptram ST18 LHD at Euro Mine Expo

first_imgAs a Gold Sponsor of the upcoming Euro Mine Expo to be held in Skellefteå, Sweden, 10–12 June, Atlas Copco will be presenting some of its latest and exciting new products. The new Scooptram ST18 loader will be on display together with a new simulator for underground LHDs, the latest control system RCS 5, as well as a new automation system. Designed to match Atlas Copco’s successful 60 t capacity mine truck, Minetruck MT6020, the ST18 has a unique bucket design which tests show gives considerably better muckpile penetration.“The optimised bucket gives a faster loading cycle and that means more tonnes per month,” comments Ben Thompson, Product Manager at Atlas Copco. “It also offers great improvements for the operator, not least in terms of the extra legroom provided by the unique Atlas Copco Footbox.“Good legroom should not be underestimated. Operators who have tested the Scooptram ST18 cite the new Footbox as one of the reasons why the loader enables them to work longer shifts,” Thompson points out. “Not only that, they confirm that the view from the cab is best-in-class, even when reversing, thanks to the loader’s sloping bodywork and shorter frame structure.”At Euro Mine Expo the new loader will be available for anyone who wants to try out the new Footbox or examine the unique bucket design. Visitors will also be able to find out how it feels to drive the new loader under realistic conditions by using the simulator located in the demo-arena.last_img read more

Samsung creates an image processor using IBMs brainchips

first_imgIBM’s been busy. A couple weeks back they unveiled a new line of neural computing chips that try to mimic the kinds of connections found in the brain. It could unleash incredible new leaps in parallel computing and revolutionize artificial intelligence. Samsung, it seems, wanted to leverage that new processing power as soon as possible. The electronics giant announced this week that they’ve been working on an image processor that can record in 2,000 frames per second.The processor, which IBM dubs TrueNorth, uses 4,096 separate processing cores to form one standard chip. Each of them can operate independently and are designed for low power consumption. Samsung hopes that the chip will help with visual pattern recognition — something our brains excel at. As such, they’ve incorporated their image sensor and a TrueNorth chip into a gesture recognition system which is already performing spectacularly well.This works because each pixel on the sensor operates independently and only reports changes it sees, much like a compressed video. That means it requires a fraction of the processing power and resources most cameras need. With less overhead, Samsung can push the sensor to record much, much faster — almost ten times that of a standard, 250 fps high-speed camera.Samsung wants to use the tech for safety features for autonomous cars or more advanced gesture recognition. The insanely high speed of the camera could allow it to detect much subtler changes than modern systems. Being able to improve the responsiveness of an automated vehicle with faster systems is also a top priority.It’s just one more example of how we’re already living in the future.last_img read more

Vancouver fire chief saves choking man

first_imgAs chief of the Vancouver Fire Department, Joe Molina doesn’t go out on calls.So the story of how he saved a choking man’s life at a restaurant on Sunday spread quickly around City Hall on Monday, and Molina agreed to talk about it not to highlight himself as a hero, but to highlight the need for people to know how to perform simple techniques such as the Heimlich maneuver and CPR. Deputy Chief Dan Olson said it was an example of how someone without any special equipment was able to save a life. Alas, Olson said, Molina “isn’t in every restaurant.” Molina, 52, said it was the first time he’d used the Heimlich maneuver while off-duty in his 22-year career as a firefighter. Usually, it’s children who choke, often on hot dogs. (Olson would also like to take this opportunity to tell parents to cut hot dogs up into little pieces.)On Sunday, Molina was at McMenamins Sand Trap Pub in Gearhart, Ore., five miles north of Seaside. He was on the patio with his girlfriend, his niece and a dog, which necessitated the outdoor seating. In his line of sight was a man in his mid-70s, and Molina heard him start to cough. The coughing grew worse. Usually the body does a good job of expelling lodged items, Molina said, but he watched as the man stood up and walked over to the railing. He was no longer coughing. The man’s wife had left the table before the coughing started, Molina had noticed, so the man was alone. Another patron stood up and patted the man on the back, asking him if he was OK.last_img read more

Can acting help improve memory

first_imgHave you ever felt annoyed with yourself, maybe for forgetting to do an important task?If so, acting out things you are supposed to remember or pretending that you are actually doing it, can help you recall.The findings showed that alternative enactment techniques, such as acting, can improve prospective memory – where you have not remembered to take the action you had planned. This involves recreating an action and pretending that you are actually doing it, in as much vivid detail as possible, the researchers said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfA failing prospective memory can be an early sign of Alzheimer, according to lead author Antonina Periera, psychologist at the University of Chichester in the UK.In the research, published in the journal Neuropsychology, it was examined the prospective memory performance in nearly 100 participants. It included patients with mild cognitive impairment aged 64 – 87 years, healthy older adults aged 62 – 84 years and younger adults aged 2 –18 years.Participants reported improvement, especially the older subjects with mild cognitive impairment in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. It was confirmed that prospective memory erodes as we get older and that enactment techniques might support those with a poor prospective memory.The enactment techniques “can have long lasting effects even for people with cognitive impairment.last_img read more

Josef von Sternbergs Infatuation with Marlene Dietrich Created Cinematic Magic

first_imgThe collaboration of Marlene Dietrich and Josef von Sternberg is one of the most remarkable ones in Hollywood. He made her into an icon, transformed her from a Berlin suburban girl into a star.She in return was his long-time muse that allowed his career to flourish and for him to become a true rococo cinema master to be remembered.Marlene Dietrich in No Highway (1951).They made seven movies together between 1930 and 1935, all of them essential for any cinema lover: The Blue Angel (1930), Morocco (1930), Dishonored (1931), Shanghai Express (1932), Blonde Venus (1932), The Scarlet Empress (1934) and The Devil is a Woman (1935).Clive Brook and Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express (1932).When he came to Berlin, Josef von Sternberg was already an established film-maker. He was famous for working with lights and shadows and on sound stages, which made his movies especially aesthetically pleasing.Before coming to Germany, he had a great success with silent films such as Underworld (1927) and Docks of New York (1928). His first talkie was The Blue Angel in which Marlene stared as Lola, the lead role.Marlene Dietrich and Barry Norton in Dishonored (1931), directed by Josef Von Sternberg.The movie was a great success, which was not always the case with directors transitioning from silent to sound movies, as many of them were not equipped to deal with the new medium.Von Sternberg encountered Marlene in a Berlin cabaret that was not reserved for the best of actors.People from the Berlin film scene tried to convince him not to work with her, but he did not to give up on his conviction that she was the one for the role.Marlene Dietrich and Victor Mclaglen in Dishonored (1931).According to Wrong Reel, after making a test scene with Marlene, Von Starnberg wrote: “I then put her into the crucible of my conception, blended her image to correspond with mine, and, pouring lights on her until the alchemy was complete, proceeded with the test. She came to life and responded to my instructions with an ease that I had never before encountered.” By playing with light and shadows he accentuated her beauty and appeal, and made her cheekbones famous.Marlene Dietrich in The Blue Angel.While they were still working on their first movie together Von Sternberg sent test shots back to Paramount. He gave Marlene five minutes to make up her mind if she was ready for Hollywood or wanted to stay in Germany.Emile Chautard and Marlene Dietrich, Shanghai Express (1932).She luckily decided to follow him and soon was shooting Morocco alongside the great Gary Cooper. This movie both saved Paramount from decline and made Marlene into a Hollywood star. Soon everyone wanted to work with her, the audience was in love with her and the media glorified her.Their collaboration was full of ups and downs and very turbulent. Von Sternberg was known as extremely demanding, hard headed and authoritative.Shanghai Express (1932).He was not very famous for creating a pleasant working atmosphere, so many people from the industry avoided him even though he was a brilliant film-maker. However Marlene was not to be broken easily, and would even bully him in return.The Devil is a Woman (1935), directed by Josef Von Sternberg.According to Dietrich’s daughter, Von Sternberg was madly in love with his muse which helped her know his soft spots and find her way when she needed to. It is not certain if the two of them had a sexual relationship, but it is speculated that they did.Lionel Atwill and Marlene Dietrich in The Devil is a Woman (1935).Their relationship did not serve only as an inspiration for the movies they made together, but very often was also the outright subject of them. The most obvious example is the movie Blonde Venus. It tells the story of an American scientist who falls in love with a German performer, eventually leading to marriage.’The movies they did together were abundant in subtle and artistic eroticism which was in a way also the end of them two working together. The era started to shift towards more conservative values which made their films stop doing so well at the box office.Read another story from us: The Unhappy Royal Couple – Charles and Diana’s Loveless MarriageJosef Von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich parted ways after The Devil is a Woman and both continued working with other people.

How to sync Vivaldi user data

first_imgHow to sync Vivaldi user data by Martin Brinkmann on July 06, 2017 in Internet – Last Update: July 10, 2017 – 12 commentsIf you use the Vivaldi browser on multiple devices, or even a stable and development version on the same computer, you may have run into a roadblock when it comes to making sure the user data is synced between all Vivaldi versions.Vivaldi does not support Sync yet, but it is a feature that the company works on actively. It is likely that Sync will ship this year.For now however, the only option that Vivaldi users have is to sync data manually between profiles. While this requires some manual work on part of the user, it is not super difficult.Note: The method may be used to sync most user related data but not all of it. You cannot sync extension installations for instance it seems, so that you need to install extensions manually on all other devices you use Vivaldi on.Syncing Vivaldi user dataYou need to locate and copy the user data on the computer that you use Vivaldi on already.Open the Vivaldi web browser on the device.Load vivaldi://about in the address bar. This lists information about the Vivaldi installation including the profile path location.Copy the profile path, e.g. C:\Users\Martin\AppData\Local\Vivaldi\User Data\Default.Close the Vivaldi browser (you may get file in use errors when copying otherwise).Open the user data folder that you just copied in the system’s file browser, but go up a directory so that User Data is the folder that is displayed (and not Default).Copy the Default folder. You can copy it to a USB Flash Drive for instance, or transfer it through other means to the target device.The target device processRepeat the steps 1 to 4 on the target computer.Paste the User Data folder so that it replaces the existing User Data folder on the device. This overwrites the data.When you start Vivaldi on the device afterwards, you will notice that the tabs of the Vivaldi installation of the other device are loaded, and that you have access to bookmarks and other data.What is missing?As mentioned earlier already, extensions are not carried over. This means that you need to install them again on the target machine.Passwords are not synced as well. Instructions on how to export and import Vivaldi passwords are posted on the Vivaldi forum. I could not get those to work though, as the Export option did not show up when I tried the option.Update: This appears to be caused by Google modifying Chrome’s core, and Vivaldi using the same code. To get it to work, you need to set the chrome://flags/#password-import-export flag to enabled first, and then open chrome://settings-frame/passwords to get to the import and export options.You can overcome the password syncing issue if you install a password manager extension from the Chrome Web Store.Making things more comfortableWhile you can leave it all at that, you import only one state and once you start using Vivaldi on different machines, states will inevitably change and become different again. Since data is not synced automatically, you’d have to repeat the steps.This does not work overly well though, and here is the reason: you have to sync data whenever you have used a Vivaldi instance. If you don’t, you may overwrite user data.One option that may work is to launch Vivaldi with the –user-data-dir (–user-data-dir=Path) parameter, and use only one user data folder that is shared between all devices.One option for that is to move the user data folder to a file synchronization folder, and use it on all devices that you run Vivaldi on.Now You: Do you sync your browser data?SummaryArticle NameHow to sync Vivaldi user dataDescriptionThe guide lists a simple method of synchronizing user data of the Vivaldi web browser between different machines using built-in functionality.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

It has evolved and rapidly responded to emerging consumer needs when it comes to products, destinations, services, and of course price.More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin Cruises“We work in a vibrant industry full of stimulating challenges, which is seeing steady growth. And there is no shortage of travellers. We are moving forward enthusiastically and optimistically.”Eustache said that Transat “is above all a leisure travel company” and is working actively to achieve its growth strategy. By combining Transat’s new hotels initiative with its existing leisure-travel business, “we will remain on the leading edge of travel industry innovation. We aim to stay at the forefront of the travel industry.”Earlier this year Transat tapped Jordi Solé to head up its Hotel Division.center_img TORONTO — A gleaming white and blue A330-200, part of Transat’s strategic move to an all-Airbus fleet, was a fitting backdrop for last night’s 30th anniversary celebrations marking Transat’s first flight from Toronto to London, a buzzy event that drew hundreds of industry execs, colleagues and friends to the Air Transat hangar at Toronto Pearson Airport.Transat rewarded agents all throughout last year with Surprise Dates, prize giveaways and special incentives, to commemorate three decades since Transat took flight with sun routes, the first to Acapulco in 1987.Last night the celebratory mood continued – and so did the prizes – as Transat gave away three trips to the Transat destination of the winner’s choosing, to mark 30 years since Transat took wing across the Atlantic with service from Toronto to London.Jordi Solé, President, Hotel Division, Transat and Jean-Marc Eustache, President and CEO, TransatOver the years Transat grew to become Canada’s first integrated international tourism company and its lineup now includes 60 destinations in two major markets – transatlantic (Europe and the Middle East) and the South – out of 21 airports across Canada. It also commercializes flights to Canada in 13 European countries as well as in Israel, the U.S. and its sun destination countries.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”Addressing the crowd at last night’s event, Transat President and CEO Jean-Marc Eustache sent out a special thank you to industry veteran Errol Francis, who took a chance on Transat back in those early days. After retiring from the travel industry Francis, in attendance last night, got into the real estate game, noted Eustache. “He tells me he’s happy, he’s not working too hard and he’s making lots of money,” Eustache joked. Francis’ support was pivotal in getting Transat off the ground, said Eustache, adding: “I want to thank him.” Eustache also lauded Transat’s Chief Operating Officer, Annick Guérard, an integral part of Transat’s succession plan as Eustache eyes retirement: “Annick will be terrific, ten times better than me.”Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, among the dignitaries at last night’s event, said Transat is renowned for its excellent customer service and top-notch fleet. “Transat’s future is very bright.”Among the company’s distinctions and awards (2017–2018), Transat was named the world’s second-best leisure airline and best in North America at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.After three decades Transat remains steadfast in its mission, said Eustache: “to brighten the days of travellers with the joys of vacations.” Travelweek Group << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

Pissouri land to be mapped residents warned about compensation

first_imgThe tender for a land management study of the Limnes area of Pissouri, where residents have been forced to abandon their homes due to land slippage, will be launched this month, the interior ministry announced on Monday.However, it remains unclear how far the owners of damaged properties will be compensated by the government.“The auditor-general has pointed out that a decision to compensate the affected owners by the government will create a precedent for similar cases and is basically a gift to the developers who sold the residences to unsuspecting buyers,” Monday’s statement said.“The auditor-general pointed out that it is unacceptable that a non-existent obligation should be transferred to the shoulders of the Republic.”The tender will be open for three months and the preliminary findings are expected to be submitted around mid-January 2020, the ministry noted.Based on the preliminary study and proposals for a solution to soil instability in the area, the ministry will formulate a policy to deal with the problem.At the same time, the ministry will ensure it will get the proper legal advice by involving the attorney-general.In Pissouri, an area of approximately 500,000m² has serious problems with sliding soil, which started after intense rainfall in 2012, the ministry explained. In 2015, a preliminary study was completed which indicated the problem mainly concerned groundwater in the area which remained trapped in places where before there had been lakes.“The view of the geological survey department, which has been constantly monitoring the problem since 2012, is that what is usually suggested in these cases is the implementation of measures to support and stabilise the region. The problem continues to exist and to date there have been damages to about 75 buildings, six of which have been declared unsuitable for habitation, and on the basis of Article 15B of the road and building Law the Limassol district administration has issued notices for their evacuation,” the ministry declared.The district administration, the ministry said, is constantly carrying out repair work for cracks and other damages, the cost of which has so far exceeded €870,000, and the department has spent about €120,000 to study the area and conduct chemical analysis on samples taken from groundwater.Proper research should have been done by developers before housing units were built in the area, the government believes.The government will step in to help, but homeowners should take legal action against the developers who have built and sold them the homes, the ministry added.In 2016, after some property owners paid for a study to assess the situation and homeowners were asked to submit these to the government but the ministry says it is yet to receive any revised studies or information that legal action has been taken against the companies involved in the land development.The comments came after Pissouri residents blocked the Limassol to Paphos highway on Sunday morning to demonstrate against the lack of compensation from the state for the damaged homes.“The protest is taking place as we consider that the state is delaying to solve a problem that should have been resolved some time ago,” said community leader of Pissouri Lazaros Lazarou.“We demand what has happened in similar cases in other villages in Cyprus, where the state, in worse times than we are now facing, has moved entire villages. For us it is just one neighbourhood,” he continued.According to lawyer for the home owners Elina Zoi 15 houses are considered dangerous but the owners continue to live in them as they have nowhere else to go.In 2015, some of the property owners formed the Pissouri Housing Initiative Group (PHIG) and paid out thousands of euros to obtain studies and papers from various renowned international experts and also satellite imaging, at a cost of €25,000, which measured the movement of the land. According to the study, the movement is up to 40cm per year, which is a lot when it’s pressing against a house.Damage includes cracks in interior and exterior walls, swimming pools, roads, pavements, footpaths, retaining walls, drains, water pipes and other infrastructure works.You May LikeDirectExposeWorld’s First Surviving Octuplets Are All Grown Up.

calculation: Among people between 55 and 64 who have retirement accounts, and longtime Bismarck trial lawyer Bob Bolinske Sr. who previously ran unsuccessfully in 2016Those involved with the judiciary say experience and temperament are key to consider for Supreme Court candidates Almost 400 North Dakota lawyers participated in a survey that scored McEvers and Bolinske for their judicial temperament integrity and experience among other traits"The electorate should look for experience look for temperament look for someone who knows how to do the job" said Tony Weiler executive director of the State Bar Association of North Dakota adding that the organization does not endorse candidatesWhile today’s high court is younger than previous makeups — three of five justices were appointed in the past five years — they bring different lines on their resumes such as previous trial court judges litigators and members of the executive branch"I think you can get to the court with any sort of background but usually they’re very experienced attorneys and distinguished in their field whatever that may be" Weiler saidState Court Administrator Sally Holewa said voters should look for "fidelity to the law" and a "lasered focus" for the high court"It’s the willingness to apply the law as it is and not how they might wish it to be" she saidStanding on her recordMcEvers took office in 2014 on Gov Jack Dalrymple’s appointment and she won an unexpired two-year term in 2016 She was previously a district judge in Fargo and state labor commissioner in Gov John Hoeven’s cabinet from 2005-10Prior to that she was a Cass County prosecutor in private practice a law clerk for the North Dakota Supreme Court and worked in court administration before attending law school She’s been licensed for 21 yearsMcEvers said her record stands on its own merits from her years in trial court to the executive branch As a justice she’s authored more than 170 majority opinions and estimates she’s sat on more than 1000 casesWhile Bolinske has been a lawyer longer than she has McEvers said the substance of their legal careers carries weight such as her judicial experience McEvers has served on a number of court committees including the Juvenile Policy Board and Personnel Policy Board among others She also said five years as labor commissioner helped prepare her for her current administrative duties"You’re not just going to be able to do one kind of thing on this court" McEvers said "It’s good to have a varied kind of experience"More than 60 percent of respondents to the bar association’s survey ranked her professional competence legal experience and integrity as "excellent" More than 70 percent of respondents rated her temperament as "excellent""I’ve always tried to treat folks with respect whether I’m on the bench or in front of the bench with an opponent" McEvers said "I pride myself in trying to be even-tempered and treat people how I’d like to be treated"Her seat is one previously held by the first two female Supreme Court justices in North Dakota: Beryl Levine who retired in 1996 and Mary Muehlen Maring who retired in 2013 McEvers said her gender shouldn’t be a voting factor but added she brings a different perspective as a woman to an otherwise all-male courtA woman on the court also gives young girls something to aspire to she said: "You can see yourself in a role when you’ve seen another person in that role"’A search for the truth’Bolinske is back on the ballot after his unsuccessful run in 2016 If elected he said he intends to uproot what he sees as dishonesty and abuse he attributes to certain judges and attorneys He pointed to expensive litigation and encumbered prosecution as what he sees as abuse"My goal in life I decided not too long ago as an attorney was to abuse the abusers" Bolinske said "I’ve seen so many little people regular people get abused by the powerful that the sides need to be evened up a little bit and I’m the guy what to do it"He referenced his own case involving an admonition upheld by the state Supreme Court in which a bar committee admonished him for alleging in a press release that judges hid court records Bolinske said he’ll file a federal lawsuit to question those who he says are ruining his life and reputation"I’m ready for war" Bolinske said "I’ve been ready for war with these people I just can’t wait to get into the ring with them They think they’ve been hunting me I’m like the grizzly bear that’s really been hunting them I’m going to rear up behind them and they’re going to be very surprised and shocked and I think their sphincters are going to tighten up I really do"He said voters should consider the number and types of cases he and McEvers have tried: "I’ve done defense work I’ve done plaintiff’s work I’ve done domestic relations work I’ve tried more cases I would bet than the whole Supreme Court put together"Bolinske disputed the bar association’s survey as "the phoniest damn thing that I’ve ever seen" About 54 percent of respondents ranked his judicial temperament as "poor" while about 3 percent ranked "excellent" Legal experience was Bolinske’s best ranked trait with about 21 percent of respondents ranking his as "average" He’s been an attorney for more than 40 yearsHe also denounced press coverage as "prejudiced" of a debate in 2016 in which he participated and was noted for his fiery rhetoric toward opponent Jerod Tufte though he did admit he is a "combative" person unafraid of authority figures"Justice the law is supposed to be a search for truth not a polite little patty cake game" Bolinske said "It’s a nasty business It’s a really nasty business" The visibly aggrieved mother of two filed for the dissolution on the grounds of what she described as
