Alia Bhatt has less scope in RRR Did she commit a mistake

first_imgAlia Bhatt.TwitterFilmmakers make a beeline to work with Alia Bhatt and they have every reason to approach the actress. Her ability to pick the right scripts and doing justice to her roles have been the hallmark of her success in Bollywood. After becoming one of the top actresses in Hindi film industry, she has now headed down south to conquer more hearts through SS Rajamouli’s multilingual RRR, which has Ram Charan Teja and Jr NTR in the leads.It was based on Karan Johar’s recommendation that Alia Bhatt got the offer to work in RRR. Let’s not forget it has been her dream to work with SS Rajamouli and when the project came her way she grabbed it with both hands with some Telugu media claiming that she agreed to work without a second thought.But the latest rumours indicate that she might repent signing the project and might end up as her bigger blunder in her career. A report on Deccan Chronicle claims that her role has “no substance” and the 28-year old appears just in a couple of scenes and a song.”Alia was very keen to work with Rajamouli, but it turns out that the heroine’s role could have been done by any Telugu actress. It has no substance. The film is all about the two heroes, Ramcharan Teja and NTR Jr. If a Bollywood star of Alia’s stature came on board, it is only natural that the feminine dynamics would improve for the better. They didn’t. Alia is just a prop in RRR,” the daily quotes a source as saying.It might also end up becoming more like a guest appearance role, the report adds. If it turns out to be true, RRR holds no value to her career despite giving bulk dates for the SS Rajamouli’s creation. However, looking at the recent past movies of SS Rajamouli, one wonders whether there is any truth in the reports as the director had written strong roles for his heroines. Anushka Shetty’s character in Baahubali series is a classic example of it.last_img read more

Early settlement discovered in Sundarbans revealing rich civilisation

first_imgArchaeologist Mohammad Sohrabuddin of Comilla University is busy excavating settlement traces in the Sundarbans that might be around 1,500 years old. Photo: Ehsan-ud-DaulaTraces that indicate settlement dating back to around 1,500 years ago, have been discovered in five places of the Sundarbans. Various utensils and tools used by the then people have been found in different places of the world’s largest mangrove forest.This archaeological discovery was made through personal and dedicated search of a researcher named Isme Azam.He said these installations, earlier covered by forest land, emerged into the open following soil erosion. “This was probably a seaport of ancient times, ruined over the ages,” the amateur archaeologist told Prothom Alo.According to the findings, the largest structures were located around 83 kilometres away from Shyamnagar of Satkhira, along the coast of the Bay of Bengal, in Khejurdana, Arpangashia and Shekhertek.More structures were discovered along the bank of the river Kholpatua in the Satkhira part of the Sundarbans and in Katka, in the Khulna part of the forest.Explorers say as the river erodes the banks, the soil has washed away, gradually revealing these structures.Previously in 1998, the surveys of archeology department and the archeological surveys of the forest department, Khulna University and three universities of Malaysia also pointed to evidence of certain structures.Professor Humayun Akhter of Dhaka University’s geology department and professor Badrul Islam of Rajshahi University’s geology and mining department have been researching on the geological formation of the Sundarbans and the extinct salt industry. Their research has also brought to light quite a few old structures and items.However, exact data concerning the time and usage of the items could not be determined in these research works. There was no mention of human settlement either.A research team from Germany and the US, involved in research concerning the Sundarbans’ geological changes and rise of the sea level, estimate that about 1,000 years ago there had been a large industrial town and trading centre in there, centred on the salt industry. They find evidence of a port there too.How old?Prothom Alo’s investigation into the ancient structures found in the Sundarbans were joined by professor Sufi Mostafizur Rahman of Jahangirnagar University’s archeology department, renowned for his Wari-Bateswhar discoveries, and assistant professor of archeology at Comilla University, Mohammad Sohrabuddin.They assume that these sites are between 1000 to 1200 years old. Examining the sites and their formation, Sufi Mostafizur Rahman said that the shape and size of the bricks indicate these date back to the time of the Pala dynasty. That would mean the structures are around 1,000 to 1200 years old. Though these structures were built for trade and industry, he guesses, there were permanent human settlements there as well.Isme Azam has been visiting remote areas of the Sundarbans for around seven years now, working on the census and protection of tigers. While working in the forest, he stumbled across these ruins and ancient utensils and tools. Later, when the upper layer of the area along the Sundarbans was washed away, he saw these structures emerge. With the avid interest of an archeologist, he conserved these items and began collecting data and evidence of these sites.The Indian side of the Sundarbans begins after Shyamnagar of Satkhira. In January, this correspondent saw ancient structures of the Indian Sundarbans on the Sagar island, Mousuni island and Hamilton island. Indian archeologists think that these will be between 1000 to 2500 years old.Indian historians and researchers are of the opinion that the Gangaridai kingdom of the Bengal region spread up till the Sundarbans in the pre-Christian era. They feel that the Satkhina zone was the part and trading hub of the kingdom.Indian archeological researcher and senior fellow at India’s Centre for Archeological Studies and Training (East India), Sharmi Chakrabarty, talked to Prothom Alo on the matter. After examining the data and pictures of these sites and items from the Bangladesh side of the Sundarbans, Chakraborty found these had similarity with those on the Indian side and estimated the square installations and wharf-like areas probably dated back to 600 AD to 700 AD. The other archeological findings and items were probably of mediaeval times. But overall, human settlement in the Sundarbans is at least 1500 years old.Another professor of Jahangirnagar University’s archeology department Sagar Sen, a researcher on archeological findings in Bangladesh’s rivers, said that these settlements and items would probably date back of around 1000 to 1200 years ago. He feels human settlements grew up there over time due to trade and salt production. There were destroyed time and again by natural calamities and attacks by outsiders, but were built up again.Signs of settlement deep in the forestEarly in the morning on 23 January, a seven-member team, at the initiative of Prothom Alo, started off on an investigative journey early to the Sundarbans. Their speedboat headed out for Shyamnagar, Satkhira, a little before sunrise. The structures were 83 km away, and the going was not easy. Before they could land, the speedboat got stuck midway. They saw in the distance, fallen along the edge of the forest, a pile of bricks.There is no settlement in this remote area of the forest. Amateur archeologist Isme Azam pointed out where the boat should dock and everyone alighted. There were bricks underfoot. They followed this for around 200 metres and finally reached the pile of bricks.Managing to calm the excitement which had bubbled up, Sufi Mostafiz and Sohrabuddin began looking into the enigma behind these bricks. The covering layer of broken bricks and tree roots were removed.Below all of these an amazing sight was revealed of a square structure, apparently the roof of a room.Sohrab and Isme Azam took the measurements of the bricks. Sufi Mostafiz picked up a brick and examined its size and composition. He said that such bricks, 32 inches by 28 inches in size, were used during the Pala empire.That would mean the structure was at least 1000 to 1200 years old. “The construction style of the structure indicates that there was permanent human settlement here,” he said.There were identical structures after every 50 to 80 metres. The way was slippery and the team proceeded along the precarious path with difficulty.  Removal of bricks revealed similar installations.Isme Azam said there was round four or five more such structures there. The areas would be around 5 sq km. From his seven years of experience working in the area, he said this had all been forest land but over the past five or six years the soil had been eroded and these installations emerged into the open. Another brick structure had emerged by the river Kholpotua. He thinks this was probably a seaport of ancient times, ruined over the ages.It took about half an hour to reach that port-like structure by speedboat. The composition of the bricks here too prompted Sufi Mostafiz to measure the age of the structure as 1000 to 1200 years old. From his research experience he pointed out that there were very specific differences between the bricks of the Pala, Sultani and Mughal eras. The Pala era bricks were large slabs. As time went by, the size of the bricks grew smaller and narrower. The use of Pala era bricks gradually died out.Is it possible to determine that an area is thousand years old simply based on the opinion of archeologists?Sohrabuddin replied to this question, saying he had been involved with Germany’s Bremen University in researching the geological formation and composition of the Sundarbans. He said they had discovered quite a number of furnaces and utensils for salt production in Sundarbans’ Katka. The German team’s carbon and temperature tests specified the age of these.The team leader of the Bangladesh part of this research was Dhaka University’s archeological department’s professor Humayun Akhter. His research revealed that three of the salt factories at Katka were 250 to 300 years old, two were 600 years old and one was a thousand years old.These researchers found a hillock, Tiger Hill, at Katka where they discovered a water strainer and drains for the emission of waste water. They feel this was quite a technologically developed salt factory. Around 250 to 1000 years ago, salt produced here was exported to East Asia and Europe.Humayun Akhter elaborated, “We feel that there probably was a vast salt factory where the Sundarbans now stands. At least 1,000 years ago this salt was exported from some nearby port. The ruins of this ancient port are probably around Khejurdana and adjacent areas.”Rajshahi University’s geology and mining department’s professor Badrul Islam told Prothom Alo, high grade salt used to be produced along an expansive areas spreading from Patuakhali’s Kuakata to the Sundarbans. With the sea receding, the land depressing and the vagaries of time, this could have gradually been destroyed. Over the centuries, layers of silt covered it and the Sundarbans emerged.Sufi Mostafizur Rahman sees this archeological discovery as a new chapter in the history of Bangladesh. He said, “If more detailed research is carried out on those structures, we may find some startling revelations concerning the Sundarbans and the history of that area.”He went on to say, “Western history regards Bengal a symbol of a rich civilisation from pre-Christian times. The discovery of salt production, ancient settlements along the coast will establish this further.”*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Ayesha Kabirlast_img read more

Tarique denies Bangladeshi citizenship Law minister

first_imgLaw minister Anisul HuqLaw minister Anisul Huq is confident BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman can be brought back even if his Bangladeshi citizenship is ‘void’.The lawyer-turned-ruling-party-politician pointed out that Tarique could be brought back under ‘Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty’ with the United Kingdom.Addressing newsmen at Secretariat on Thursday, Anisul said, in line with state minister for foreign affairs Shahriar Alam, that Tarique had denied Bangladeshi citizenship by seeking political asylum in UK.Shahriar earlier said that Tarique has relinquished his nationality by surrendering Bangladeshi passport.Opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) challenged his position and said Tarique submitted his passport to the Brisish authorities while seeking valid documents for his stay there.Also on Thursday, the director general of the Department of Immigration and Passport, major general Masud Rezwan, said there is no correlation between one’s surrendering passport and citizenship.The law minister said so far he came to know that Tarique has submitted his Bangladeshi passport for political asylum in the United Kingdom.“It means Tarique said he no more wants to be a citizen of Bangladesh. The present status of Tarique is: he has sought political asylum in the United Kingdom. It means he [Tarique] right at this moment has denied Bangladeshi citizenship,” said the law minister.However, he thinks, he can reinstate his citizenship should he want it in future.Anisul also said the government is trying to sign an extradition treaty with the UK, a legal arrangement that allows two signatory countries to exchange fugitives of crimes committed in the country of origin.Tarique Rahman has been staying in the UK since 2008.Read more:No correlation between surrendering passport, citizenship: DGTarique returned passport, stresses Shahriarlast_img read more

Govt rewarding officials for vote robbery Oikya Front

first_imgJatiya Oikya Front protests against `vote rigging` wearing black badges in front of the National Press Club on Wednesday. Photo: Focus BanglaJatiya Oikya Front senior leader ASM Abdur Rab on Wednesday alleged that the government is now awarding those who helped it win the 30 December election through ‘vote robbery’, reports UNB.Speaking at a ‘black badge wearing’ programme in front of the National Press Club, he also said their alliance will continue its movement with their demand for a fresh election annulling the results of the 11th parliamentary election.As part of their planned programme, several hundred leaders and activists of Oikya Front registered their protest wearing black badges against what it said ‘vote robbery’ in the national election.Oikya Front convener Kamal Hossain could not join the programme due to illness while BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, Nagorik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna and Gano Forum general secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu are now abroad.”A group of law enforcers with the help of the administration committed vote robbery in the national election on 30 December. State institutions have been brought under a party, while the administration, law enforcers, presiding officers and returning officers who indulged in vote robbery are being awarded,” Rab said.He also alleged that the law enforcers, returning officers, presiding and polling officers have been provided with thousands of cores of taka as bribe for their role in ‘vote robbery’.Rab, also the president of JSD, said they will come up with elaborate information about ‘vote robbery’ on 24 February by holding a public hearing with the participation of Oikya Front candidates and victimised voters.He called upon the people of all walks of life to get ready for waging a movement to save the country and put up a strong resistance against the current autocratic regime and force it to hold a fresh election.Explaining the reason behind the absence of the senior leaders of the alliance at the programme, Rab said Oikay Front is intact and there is no misunderstanding among them.He demanded the government release BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia and all other political prisoners.BNP standing committee member Abdul Moin Khan, Gano Forum executive president Subrata Chowdhury, Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Zafrullah Chowdhury, among others, spoke at the programme.last_img

Muslim Day At Capitol Takes On New Meaning Following Trumps Executive Orders

first_imgCopyright 2017 KSTX-FM. To see more, visit KSTX-FM. AARON SCHRANK / TEXAS PUBLIC RADIOCouncil on American Islamic Relations President Sarwat Hussein of San Antonio meets with Speaker of the House Joe Straus’ policy aide during Muslim Day at the Capitol.Hundreds attended ‘Muslim Capitol Day’ in Austin on Tuesday. The regular event encourages Muslim Texans to meet with their state representatives. The event was scheduled months ago, but takes on new meaning following Friday’s executive order by President Donald Trump restricting U.S. immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries.More than a thousand people flooded the south steps of the Capitol for the event organized by The Council on Islamic Relations, or CAIR. CAIR San Antonio President Sarwat Husain says it’s been her duty to come here every other year and make her voice heard.“Lately we have seen some demonstrations against us,” Husain says. “That is not going to stop us at all. We are Americans.”Two years ago, the Muslim Day rally was interrupted by protesters. Today, hundreds of non-Muslims formed a human chain to keep any protesters away from participants. Rashad Sharaf was one of at least 30 Muslims who came to Tuesday’s event from San Antonio. He says the display made him feel proud to be an American.“After the elections, I was slowly beginning to lose faith, but now, really, when I see–around the country–how people have spontaneously risen to protest. And what I see in San Antonio, what I see over here, it really is heartwarming,” Sharaf says.He and others visited the offices of several state lawmakers–including House Speaker Joe Strauss. The group brought up issues including immigrant rights, bullying and police body cameras. Muslim groups also came from Houston and Dallas. Sharecenter_img Last week, Rep. Kyle Biedermann from Fredericksburg drew criticism from Muslim groups after he sent a survey to Texas mosques asking them to renounce Sharia law.Tuesday’s Muslimay rally and visits happened as Gov. Greg Abbott gave his State-of-the-State speech. The governor has not responded to Trump’s so-called Muslim ban, but he did withdraw the state from the U.S. Refugee Resettlement program last year.last_img read more

5 nation joint Activity Alert Report finds most threat actors use publicly

first_imgNCCIC, in collaboration with cybersecurity authorities of  Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States has released a joint ‘Activity Alert Report’. This report highlights five publicly available tools frequently observed in cyber attacks worldwide. Today, malicious tools are available free for use and can be misused by cybercriminals to endanger public security and privacy. There are numerous cyber incidents encountered on a daily basis that challenge even the most secure network and exploit confidential information across finance, government, health sectors. What’s surprising is that a majority of these exploits are caused by freely available tools that find loopholes in security systems to achieve an attacker’s objectives. The report highlights the five most frequently used tools that are used by cybercriminals all over the globe to perform cyber crimes. These fall into five categories: #1 Remote Access Trojan: JBiFrost Once the  RAT program is installed on a victim’s machine, it allows remote administrative control of the system. It can then be used to exploit the system as per the hacker’s objectives. For example, installing malicious backdoors to obtain confidential data. These are often difficult to detect because they are designed to not appear in lists of running programs and to mimic the behavior of legitimate applications. RATs also disable network analysis tools (e.g., Wireshark) on the victim’s system. Operating systems Windows, Linux, MAC OS X, and Android are susceptible to this threat. Hackers spammed companies with emails to infiltrate their systems with the Adwind RAT into their systems. The entire story can be found on Symantec’s blog. #2 Webshell: China Chopper The China Chopper is being used widely since 2012. These webshells are malicious scripts which are uploaded to a target system to grant the hacker remote access to administrative capabilities on the system. The hackers can then pivot to additional hosts within a network. China Chopper consists of the client-side, which is run by the attacker, and the server, which is installed on the victim server and is also attacker-controlled. The client can issue terminal commands and manage files on the victim server. It can then upload and download files to and from the victim using wget. They can then either modify or delete the existing files. #3 Credential Stealer: Mimikatz Mimikatz is mainly used by attackers to access the memory within a targeted Windows system and collect the credentials of logged in users. These credentials can be then used to give access to other machines on a network. Besides obtaining credentials, the tool can obtain Local Area Network Manager and NT LAN Manager hashes, certificates, and long-term keys on Windows XP (2003) through Windows 8.1 (2012r2). When the “Invoke-Mimikatz” PowerShell script is used to operate Mimikatz, its activity is difficult to isolate and identify. In 2017, this tool was used in combination with NotPetya infected hundreds of computers in Russia and Ukraine. The attack paralysed systems and disabled the subway payment systems. The good news is that Mimikatz can be detected by most up-to-date antivirus tools. That being said, hackers can modify Mimikatz code to go undetected by antivirus. # 4 Lateral Movement Framework: PowerShell Empire PowerShell Empire is a post-exploitation or lateral movement tool. It allows an attacker to move around a network after gaining initial access. This tool can be used to generate executables for social engineering access to networks. The tool consists of a a threat actor that can escalate privileges, harvest credentials, exfiltrate information, and move laterally across a network. Traditional antivirus tools fail to detect PowerShell Empire. In 2018, the tool was used by hackers sending out Winter Olympics-themed socially engineered emails and malicious attachments in a spear-phishing campaign targeting several South Korean organizations. # 5 C2 Obfuscation and Exfiltration: HUC Packet Transmitter HUC Packet Transmitter (HTran) is a proxy tool used by attackers to obfuscate their location. The tool intercepts and redirects the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connections from the local host to a remote host. This makes it possible to detect an attacker’s communications with victim networks. HTran uses a threat actor to facilitate TCP connections between the victim and a hop point. Threat actors can then redirect their packets through multiple compromised hosts running HTran to gain greater access to hosts in a network. The research encourages everyone to use the report to stay informed about the potential network threats due to these malicious tools. They also provide a complete list of detection and prevention measures for each tool in detail. You can head over to the official site of the US-CERT for more information on this research.

The latest on posthurricane hotel reopenings in Anguilla USVI more

first_imgThe latest on post-hurricane hotel re-openings in Anguilla, USVI, more Share Posted by Tags: Anguilla, Bahamas, Caribbean, Dominica, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands << Previous PostNext Post >>center_img Travelweek Group Tuesday, November 7, 2017 TORONTO — After a strong start in the first half of 2017, the Caribbean is revising its full-year growth forecast to 1 – 2%, down from 2.5 – 3.5%.Hurricanes Irma and Maria are putting a dent in visitor figures for the last months of 2017.Up to June, the Canadian market had grown 6.4%, according to the CTO, reflecting growth in many of the CTO’s other source markets worldwide. Hotel occupancies and average daily room rates were up too, as was the cruise sector. At the end of the first six months of 2017, cruise passenger arrivals to the Caribbean region had reached an estimated 15.3 million, up 4% year over year, the largest number of cruise passengers in the region at this time of year.“Then came the hurricanes – first, Irma, then Maria – that inflicted such damage on some of our member countries, causing such despair,” said Dionisio D’Aguilar, Chairman, Council of Ministers, CTO, speaking yesterday at World Travel Market in London.Noting the CTO’s revised forecast for the year, D’Aguilar said that as for post-hurricane tourist arrivals, “it is still too early to tell”, since the October numbers are not yet in. Some cruise redeployments have benefited countries such as Curacao, which registered a 138.3% rise in cruise passenger arrivals in September, Jamaica (54%), the Cayman Islands and Grenada.He added: “You would have noticed that we predict growth in tourist arrivals this year, albeit slower than expected, which could still mean new record performance for the Caribbean despite the storms. This is mainly due to the fact that some 75% of the Caribbean was unscathed by the hurricanes and continued to welcome visitors.”Hugh Riley, Secretary General, Caribbean Tourism Organization, says this year can be described as “a tale of two situations for Caribbean tourism”. The region performed at new record pace, welcoming 16.6 million international tourist arrivals at a healthy growth rate of 5.2%, when compared to the same period last year.The economic impact of the storms is significant, says Riley. The Caribbean Development Bank predicts that every 1% reduction in tourist arrivals (based on 2015 travel data) will cost US$137 million in lost revenue.Caribbean Tourism Month, taking place this month, provides an opportunity to reiterate the message that “we are open for business and we do have an exciting product to offer.”Virtually all of the affected countries are reporting that they are open again for business, although not at full capacity.Here are the latest updates on Anguilla, The Bahamas, Dominica, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands:ANGUILLAAnguilla is reporting that just over 30% of room stock will be available for the holiday season, and anticipates that 70% of rooms on the island will be available by April 2018.The Reef by CuinsinArt will open April 10, 2018. CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa is targeting the summer 2018. And the Belmond Cap Juluca, which closed at the end of August for a 14-month multi-million dollar renovation, is on schedule to open for November 2018.The Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB) has created a website,, for the latest updates on hotel and restaurant openings, restoration of services and attractions as well as relief efforts.The ATB reports that traditionally hotels in Anguilla close in September and October for renovation and refurbishing, and reopen in November for the season. Therefore, at this point, closures are primarily due to damage from Hurricane Irma.Most local restaurants have reopened, with approximately 70% ready for Christmas and New Year’s, but some attraction operators are taking a bit longer to recover.However, the ATB states that the beaches “are in fantastic shape”. Swimming, snorkelling, diving and glass bottom boat rides, are all available. The championship golf course at CuisinArt will reopen in December.Regarding the overall damage assessment cost, the ATB states: “Anguilla was damaged but not destroyed by Hurricane Irma. Our flat terrain and the fact that many of our buildings have concrete foundations also helped to mitigate the impact of the storm. As a British overseas territory the British government has committed funds to help us rebuild. The government is still conducting its assessment, so a final figure has not yet been determined.”Clayton J Lloyd Intl Airport (AXA) opened within a week of Irma’s passage, while Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten (SXM), a major transit hub for Anguilla, opened on Oct. 10, albeit with limited facilities. Puerto Rico’s Luis Munoz Marin Airport, also a major gateway for Anguilla, is also open.Anguilla and St Maarten airports are open during daylight hours. Seaborne Airlines, Anguilla Air Services, Trans Anguilla Airways, Air Sunshine, Tradewind Aviation and Caribbean Helicopters are all operating scheduled and charter flights to San Juan, St. Maarten, Antigua and St. Kitts.While Anguilla does not have a cruise port, and the Blowing Point ferry terminal has been demolished to make way for new construction, ferry services are operating to and from Anguilla to the Dutch side of St. Maarten through Funtime Charters, Calypso Charters, GB Express and Gotcha Sea Tours.More news:  ‘Turn around year’ for TPI brings double-digit growthThe ferry from Anguilla to Marigot on French St Martin reopened on Nov. 4. Visitors and residents are processed through customs and immigration at the police station at Blowing Point.Approximately 40% of the local power company ANGEC’s infrastructure has been restored, and crews are working round the clock with a plan to cover 70% of the island, including Sandy Ground, Island Harbour, East End and Blowing Point, by Christmas.Water has been restored to households and businesses in Anguilla. Operations at the Water Corporation of Anguilla have returned to normality and all lines of access to public water are open.According to the ATB, thanks to the resilience and industriousness of the Anguillian people, things are pretty much back to normal. Phone and Internet services have been restored, schools are open, gas stations, groceries and pharmacies are all open and are well stocked.The major inconvenience remains the lack of power, but generators are gradually filling the gap, says the ATB.THE BAHAMASOf the 280 hotels in New Providence, Grand Bahamas and the Family Islands, approximately 97% are open, with the remaining three percent closed due to hurricane damage.These include Falcon Crest Apartments, Silvertail Fishing Lodge & Resort and Ponderosa Bar & Restaurant (Hotel) in Ragged Island, Crooked Island Lodge (formerly Pitts Town Landing) in Crooked Island, Chester’s Bonefish Lodge, Airport Inn and Nai’s Guest House in Acklins and Blue Water Resort in New Providence.In addition, the following hotels closed due to seasonal closing:Coral Sands (re-opening Nov. 18, 2017)The Dunmore (re-opening Nov. 15, 2017)The Landing (re-opened Nov. 4, 2017)The Pink Sands (No confirmed reopening date)The Rock House (re-opening Nov. 16, 2017)Romora Bay (re-opened on Oct. 27, 2017)Runaway Hill (No confirmed reopening date)DOMINICAThe following properties are opened to welcome visitors:Atlantique View ResortCaribbean Seaview ApartmentsClassique International Guest HouseCoffeeriver CottagesHibiscus Valley InnPicard Family Guest HousePointe Baptiste Guest HousePortsmouth Beach HotelRejens HotelRosalie Forest Eco LodgeSt. James Guest HouseSuite Pepper CottageSunset Bay ClubTamarind Tree Hotel.AccessAir Antilles, Air Sunshine, LIAT, Seaborne Airlines, WINAIR, and Trans Island Air have all announced resumption of services to Douglas Charles Airport. Costal Air Transport and Express Carrier have also resumed regular services to Canefield Airport. L’Express des Iles fast ferry service is operating daily between Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and St. Lucia. Travellers interested in visiting the destination should inquire with their travel agent or on the websites of the various carriers.The Dominica Watersports Association has reported 35% damage to reefs at 10 dive sites. All dive operators are closed, however some are expected to reopen in January 2018. Once operations resume, the number of dives per site will be reduced to limit any negative impact on the underwater ecosystem.All 14 segments of the Waitukubuli National Trail remain closed. Assessments of the damage to the trail are currently being undertaken.PUERTO RICOAccording to the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC), 72% of hotels are open and operating (108 out of 149 endorsed hotels), especially those in the San Juan area, and are taking new reservations.The PRTC adds that 35 hotels are reported closed as a result of damage from Hurricane Maria, with many of them working on reopening shortly and are currently accepting future reservations.Some also may be only open to first responders at this time. The PRTC is advising that for property specific information, visitors should contact the hotels directly.More than 450 restaurants, including franchises, are open for business, including restaurants in the Condado, Old San Juan and Santurce areas, 27 tour operators and 16 major car rental companies with 61 dealers throughout the island, are open for business.The PRTC is also reporting that 66% of casinos are open, and 38% are open 24 hours.Iconic attractions currently open include:Boqueron town, Cabo RojoLa Paguera town, LajasSchoenstatt Church, Cabo RojoOld Ponce Firehouse Museum, PonceSerralles Castle, PonceThe Watchman Cross, PonceVieques BoardwalkLa Esperanza Town Boardwalk, ViequesCarabali Rainforest Adventure Park, LuquilloNiuyorican Café, Viejo San JuanHacienda Munoz Coffee Plantation, San LorenzoPonce Museum of Art, PonceRainforest Zip Line, Rio GrandeLas Cascadas Water Park, AguadillaPunta Borinquen Golf Club, AguadillaCabo Rojo Convention Center, Cabo RojoBioluminescent Bay, LajasMayaguez Mall, MayaguezMayaguez Boardwalk, MayaguezMosquito Bay, ViequesHacienda 8A, Las PiedrasCueva Ventana, AreciboCasa Bacardi ToursIt is too soon to tell what the economic impact may be, says the PRTC. “Recent efforts [have allowed] us to more quickly to reactivate tourism on the island. Major decisions by different partners of the tourism industry are proof of their confidence in Puerto Rico as a major hub in the Caribbean. We hope that all this, coupled with the fact that our capital of San Juan was recently showcased as one of Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel’ Top 10 Cities for 2018, reinvigorates travellers, as much as it does us, that we’re ready to welcome visitors with open arms.”More news:  Sunwing offers ultimate package deal ahead of YXU flights to SNU, PUJLuis Munoz Marin Airport (SJU) is open and receiving commercial flights. The airport is fully operational and airlines are resuming normal operations with approximately 70 flights per day, while the San Juan Port is open with 34 cruise shore excursions fully operational.

Amtrak train was going 50 mph over limit before derailment

first_imgAmtrak train was going 50 mph over limit before derailment Source: The Associated Press Tags: Amtrak, Rail << Previous PostNext Post >>center_img Tuesday, December 19, 2017 DUPONT, Wash. — Federal officials confirmed an Amtrak train was hurtling 50 mph over the speed limit when it careened off an overpass south of Seattle, spilling cars onto the highway below and killing at least three people.Bella Dinh-Zarr, a National Transportation Safety Board member, said at a Monday night news conference that information from the event data recorder in the rear locomotive showed the train was travelling at 80 mph in a 30 mph zone when it derailed at 7:34 a.m. Mangled train cars ended up on top of each other – and one hung precariously over the freeway.When the clanging of metal and screeching stopped at first it was quiet. Then came the screams.After the crash, the injured called out as rescuers – including people who had been in cars on their morning freeway commute – rushed to help. One of the train passengers was Emma Shafer, who found herself at a 45-degree angle staring at the seats in front of her that had dislodged and swung around.“It felt oddly silent after the actual crashing,” Shafer said. “Then there was people screaming because their leg was messed up … I don’t know if I actually heard the sirens, but they were there. A guy was like, ‘Hey, I’m Robert. We’ll get you out of here.”’Dinh-Zarr said it’s not yet known what caused the train to derail and that “it’s too early to tell” why it was going so fast.Positive train control – the technology that can slow or stop a speeding train – wasn’t in use on this stretch of track, according to Amtrak President Richard Anderson.In 2015, an Amtrak train in Philadelphia was travelling at twice the 50 mph speed limit as it entered a sharp curve and derailed. Eight people were killed and more than 200 were injured when the locomotive and four of the train’s seven passenger cars jumped the tracks. Several cars overturned and ripped apart.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerA track chart prepared by the Washington State Department of Transportation shows the maximum speed drops from 79 mph (127 kph) to 30 mph (48 kph) for passenger trains just before the tracks curve to cross Interstate 5, which is where the train went off the tracks.The chart, dated Feb. 7, was submitted to the Federal Railroad Administration in anticipation of the start of passenger service along a new bypass route that shaves off 10 minutes for the trip between Seattle and Portland, Oregon.Kimberly Reason with Sound Transit, the Seattle-area transit agency that owns the tracks, said speed signs are posted 2 miles (3 kilometres) before the speed zone changes and just before the speed zone approaching the curve.Eric Corp, a councilman for the small city of DuPont near the derailment, said he rode the train with about 30 or so dignitaries and others on a special trip Friday before the service opened to the public Monday.“Once we were coming up on that curve, the train slowed down considerably,” he said, adding that “in no way did it make me feel like we were going too fast.”The train was not full. Authorities said there were 80 passengers and five on-duty crew members on board when it derailed and pulled 13 cars off the tracks. Authorities said there were three confirmed deaths. More than 70 people were taken for medical care _ including 10 with serious injuries.About two hours after the accident, a U.S. official who was briefed on the investigation said he was told at least six people were killed. The official said he had no new information to explain the discrepancy in the numbers. The official was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.More news:  Can you guess the one and only hotel company to rank on Indeed’s Top Workplaces in Canada list?In a statement, the FBI said local police were the primary responders and there was no information suggesting “an elevated risk to Washington residents.”In a radio transmission immediately after the accident, the conductor can be heard saying the train was coming around a corner and was crossing a bridge that passed over Interstate 5 when it derailed.Dispatch audio also indicated that the engineer survived with bleeding from the head and both eyes swollen shut.“I’m still figuring that out. We’ve got cars everywhere and down onto the highway,” he tells the dispatcher, who asks if everyone is OK.Aleksander Kristiansen, a 24-year-old exchange student at the University of Washington from Copenhagen, was going to Portland to visit the city for the day.“I was just coming out of the bathroom when the accident happened. My car just started shaking really, really badly,” he said.The back of his train car was wide open because it had separated from the rest of the train, so he and others were able to jump out to safety.The train was making the inaugural run on the new route as part of a $180.7 million project designed to speed up service by removing passenger trains from a route along Puget Sound that’s bogged down by curves, single-track tunnels and freight traffic.The new bypass was built on an existing inland rail line that runs along Interstate 5 from Tacoma to DuPont, near where Train 501 derailed.last_img read more

The day after every game Cardinals GM Steve Keim

first_img The day after every game, Cardinals GM Steve Keim joins Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM to discuss what happened and where the team is at.On Monday, he discussed his team’s season-opening 23-21 loss to a depleted New England Patriots team on Sunday Nigh Football.The Cardinals did not play great, though had a chance to win in the end until Chandler Catanzaro pushed a 47-yard field goal attempt wide left. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Your browser does not support the audio element. What was your biggest disappointment yesterday?“Just the lack of execution. Just throughout the week, the plan that was in place, we felt pretty strongly what they were going to do strictly offensively and we just didn’t execute. You wake up Monday morning with a loss, you’re angry, disappointed and embarrassed, and that’s the way we should all feel. Just didn’t get it done and there were a lot of reasons we didn’t get it done and that certainly needs to improve and it’s unacceptable.”What did you see out of special teams?“Very disappointing in every area. Whether it’s punting, kicking, you name it. Returning, we didn’t get it done, and that certainly is an area that needs improvement.”What are your expectations for a punt?“I think some of it’s placement, and a combination of placement and cover teams, you’d have to talk to the special teams coach a little bit more about that. You know it’s pretty simple, you gotta block and tackle and we didn’t do a good enough job in any of those areas. Defensively very frustrating. Third down defense, I think we all know what the numbers are there. We knew it’d be hard to get to (Jimmy) Garoppolo because most of it was going to be three-step drop and he was going to get the ball out of his hands but the intuition that we played with, the isolations that they got with some of their inside slot receivers on safeties, the lack of leverage, the inability to tackle in space, those were all extremely disappointing, and a major reason why we were 10-for-16 (on third down defense).” What did you see from Tyrann Mathieu?“Well he tried to fly around. Again I think that he’d be the first to tell you that he was disappointed in some of the missed tackles that he had specifically in the alley. He’s got to get better in that area and I don’t know if the knee’s bothering him or not, as far as I can tell it’s not, but knocking the rust off, reminding yourself to come to balance and bend your knees and play in space I think that’s something he’ll continue to grow and get better.”Do you believe in the theory that there can be a good loss?“No. Not when you’re playing a backup quarterback who is missing some playmakers and it’s a game at home. Our mindset is you cannot lose those home games in front of our crowd. Our fans were excited, they were rowdy, they certainly did their part and we did not live up to expectations and that’s something that needs to change by next Sunday against Tampa.”What happened on the Brandon Williams blown coverage play?“That’s exactly right; it was a blown coverage and that’s disappointing, and it’s no different from a tackle that gives up a sack out of 60-some plays. You can play well, as Brandon played well a majority of the plays, but there were two or three plays that he made critical errors, and that was one of them. The other was when he went up for the ball on that one pass on the perimeter and he mistimed it and it resulted in a big gain. There were some mistakes that he made that were very very critical to the game that he’s got to clean up and improve on.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling How did D.J. Humphries do?“He had two pressures that I saw just because of technique, I saw in the run game he was excellent. He rolled people out of there on the goaline. The run by David Johnson, he drove a guy about six yards into the endzone and dumped him. I thought he played solid. He’s playing physical, he’s playing with urgency, continues to get better and better with his technique, but there were certainly some issues with all those guys, Jared Veldheer, all the guys across the front of the offensive line can continue to grow and get better.”What went wrong with the third down defense?“They got us into some matchups that were not beneficial for us, and more than anything we did not tackle well. Again, when you have a receiver in the slot and they catch an underneath pass, and you come up and miss the first tackle and it’s third-and-five, it’s instantly a three yard gain that becomes a six or seven yard gain and you gotta move the sticks. Coach told them prior to the game several times, and I heard it, guys are going to try and get the ball to several of their play-makers and we have to tackle well to be effective and we did not do that, and that was across the board, including some of our playmakers in the secondary did not tackle well.” Top Stories center_img Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell (93) reacts to a missed game-winning field goal attempt during the second half of an NFL football game against the New England Patriots, Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. The Patriots won 23-21. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) 0 Comments   Share   LISTEN: Steve Keim, Cardinals general manager Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires What did you see when you evaluated the offense?“Protection was solid, he was sacked three times, two or three I thought were coverage sacks. I thought we were out of sync in the passing game in the first half, receivers and Carson (Palmer) were not on the same page. I thought in the run game we were solid at times. Across the board, offensive line-wise, probably not a reason why I thought we lost the game. Again in the first half I didn’t think we were in sync.”Do you buy into there’s too much hype for the 2016 Cardinals?“I don’t know, I mean the thing is I don’t place hype on our team. My job is to try and produce the best roster I can and I know we have a talented bunch, yet at the same time if they don’t play to their level, then we’re going to have disappointment, and that’s certainly what happened last night. We gotta regroup. The sky’s falling Monday, and that’s the feel that all of us should have and use that as a chip on our shoulder to make sure that doesn’t happen again. One thing we have to do is continue to execute, and like I said, make sure that something like last night doesn’t happen again.” Is there a free-agent you’re looking at bringing in to create competition?“Yeah we’re bringing in several guys this week, but I’m not gonna say what positions.”You bring in guys every week right?“We didn’t last week, but this week we will.”What are some injuries from last night?“Frostee (Rucker) got nicked up, but I don’t know the extent of it yet. At this point on Monday mornings I haven’t talked to Tom Reed on our medical staff yet. I know the guys are still coming in and getting looked at but I’ll find out a little bit later today.”Any information on Evan Mathis’ injury or same thing?“No, same thing.” – / 55last_img read more

Former bank CEO tells court BoC was flush with funds in 2012

first_imgFormer Bank of Cyprus (BoC) CEO Andreas Eliades, on trial on market manipulation charges, told a court on Monday that the lender had excess liquidity in 2012 and led the market in deposits.Apart from the first three quarters of 2011, and despite the loss from the haircut on Greek bonds, never in its history did BoC have so much capital, Eliades said, adding that it had reached €2.85billion.Eliades along with Bank of Cyprus, former board chairmen Theodoros Aristodemou and Andreas Artemi, former CEO Yiannis Kypri, and former deputy CEO Yiannis Pehlivanides, are facing market-manipulation charges in connection with their failure to inform the public from June 14 to June 26, 2012, that the lender’s capital shortfall, announced the previous month at €200million, was in fact more than double that.The bank, Aristodemou, and Eliades, are also facing a charge of having misrepresented the value of the lender’s financial holdings to shareholders at their AGM on June 19, 2012.Aristodemou and Eliades also face an additional charge, again relating to the AGM. They are accused of having withheld crucial information regarding the bank’s capital shortfall from the shareholders.Asked why then did the lender apply for emergency liquidity assistance (ELA) from the Bank of Greece in May 2012, Eliades said it was part of their effort to ring-fence their Greek operations – isolating them from Cyprus. The Bank of Greece rejected the request.The former CEO said they made the request not because they needed the cash but because they did not want to use the group’s liquidity.He said there was always a “possibility of seeking state support … but our aim and all our energy focused on achieving the goal of covering the capital deficit.”Eliades denied the charges, suggesting that announcing that that the lender’s shortfall was €400m would have been wrong and misleading.“At that stage the sums were uncertain and vague and depended on the decisions that were going to be made later, either by the bank, when all data was ready, or by third parties outside the bank, like the external auditors, Esma (European Securities and Markets Authority) and the EBA (European Banking Authority),” he said.He also denied withholding information from shareholders on June 19, 2012, adding that the same went for the board meeting five days earlier.“If I wanted to hide information I could have done the presentation myself or ask Mr Hadjimitsis to change the presentation and take out or add topics and amounts,” he said.“With all honesty towards the court, during the entire period I served as CEO I always worked solely for the interest of the shareholders and the bank,” Eliades said. “I did not hide nor did I distribute information that could possible mislead the shareholders, nor did I have any interest in doing so.”Eliades said the efforts they made to cover the shortfall would have yielded results. He said it was a fact that the lender needed a relatively small sum to meet the limit set by the EBA and “I believe that a small extension and with everyone’s co-operation it would have covered the entire amount of the exercise.”You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.
