first_imgzoom Thailand’s Thoresen Thai Agencies (TTA) has expanded its fleet by adding a second-hand dry bulk vessel, the 58,700 dwt MV Thor Caliber.The Supramax vessel, which was formerly named MV Albion, was purchased for a price of USD 14 million.TTA informed that the 2008-units was bought from a company which is not connected to Thoresen Shipping Singapore (TSS), a wholly owned subsidiary of TTA.With this additional vessel, the Thoresen-owned fleet comprises a total of 21 vessels with an average size of 54,512 dwt and an average age of 11.57 years.The transaction comes on the back of the company’s sale of two older ships over the previous six months.In February 2018, TTA disposed of the 1995-built MV Thor Endeavour. The 42,529 dwt general cargo vessel was sold at a price of USD 4.2 million. In late 2017, the company sold its 2002-built MV Thor Horizon for USD 5.4 million.TTA said that the sale transactions were in line with prevailing dry bulk shipping conditions, in which older vessels become less competitive and less able to meet operating costs. The proceeds were to be used to improve the efficiency of the TTA fleet and the company’s fleet renewal program.last_img read more

first_imgFormer Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Gates Foundation Co-Chair Melinda Gates and Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton joined global and community leaders for the official release of the No Ceilings Full Participation Report and data visualization site on Monday, March 9, in New York City.The No Ceilings Full Participation Report is the culmination of a year-long effort to aggregate and analyze new and existing global data by the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in collaboration with The Economist Intelligence Unit, UCLA WORLD Policy Analysis Center, and Fathom Information Design. This comprehensive data is available in written form, as well as through a collection of interactive and sharable visualizations, graphics, stories, and compelling videos produced by Scratch, a division of Viacom. The data is open and easily downloadable.“There has never been a better time to be born female,” wrote Hillary Clinton in an email to supporters of the Clinton Foundation. “That’s the conclusion of a sweeping new global report that Chelsea, Melinda Gates, and I were thrilled to unveil yesterday morning. It’s called The Full Participation Report, and we can’t wait for you to see for yourself the gains that women and girls have made around the world – as well as the gaps that remain.“At, you can explore more than two decades of data from more than 190 countries and the compelling stories of women and girls from around the world that make all the statistics come alive.“We’re excited for you to dig into this data yourself – to use it, share it, learn from it, and get motivated by it. You can learn something fast or take a deep dive into the areas that interest you most. I hope you’ll visit the site today.“It’s been twenty years since the 1995 UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, where the international community pledged to work toward the full participation of women and girls in all aspects of life. Today, two decades later, it’s time to take stock.“There are real gains to celebrate, including more laws protecting the rights of women, more girls going to primary school, and more mothers getting access to services that can keep them healthy. Yet despite this progress, significant gaps remain around the world, including in the United States, especially in the areas of security, economic opportunity, and leadership. The evidence is clear: When it comes to gender equality, we’re just not there yet.“This data proves that progress is indeed possible, but it is not inevitable. More needs to be done to fulfill our promise and ensure that every woman and girl has the opportunity to live up to her God-given potential.”Visit to explore the gains and the gaps.last_img read more

first_imgCroatia-born Bharatanatyam danseuse Nikolina Nikoleski, who was encouraged to pursue dance forms and sports from childhood, finds to her delight that more and more Indian youngsters are taking to physical expression. “India has recently changed and is still going through changes in last 6-8 years where more youngsters are also being exposed and encouraged in physical expression,” Nikoleski, 43 said. “I see that as a very positive change and good sign. Being healthy and free in one’s body is the foundation of a good and complete life,” she said. Also Read – The Puja carnivalSpeaking about her own early practice, Nikoleski recalled: “I was born and brought up in Croatia where children from a very tender age are exposed and encouraged to pursue various dance forms and sports. Almost every child then takes this hobby very seriously.” The hobbies later translate to professional spaces, and make Croatia – with a population of close to 42 lakh people – a country with “world, Olympic and European champions in every sport”, she said. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this NavratraShe is trained in classical ballet, contemporary dance, folk dances, flamenco, physical theatre, and yoga, apart from Bharatanatyam. Nikoleski’s quest to learn multiple dance forms took her from the small European country, where she started with gymnastics at the age of four, to the land of multiple cultures and dance forms – India. Settled in Delhi since 2005, the professional dancer-teacher has learnt Bharatanatyam in India under the tutelage of gurus Saroja Vaidyanathan, Malavika Sarukkai, as well as Shanta and V.P. Dhananjayan. Coming from the light-footed ballet tradition, it took dedicated practice for Nikoleski to master this age-old dance form, that requires the performer to do heavy footwork along with gestures and body movements. “I fell in love with Bharatanatyam because of its amazing holistic art, beautiful expression, use of all body, including facial expressions, ‘mudras’, intricate footwork, state-of-art costume and jewellery, music and ragas. “They transform and elevate one’s feelings. Most importantly, it’s storytelling of ancient spiritual scripts, and brilliantly expresses all human yearnings, longings, emotions, and inner battles,” she explained. Heading her own dance academy now, she said that learning the Indian classical has completed her as a human and as an artist. Her students performed classical ballet, contemporary and jazz at an event here last week.last_img read more

El Jadida  –  The UN Global Counterterrorism Strategy, unanimously adopted by all member states in 2006 and reaffirmed in June 2014, is a comprehensive approach to fight terrorism, wrote a note to the press on the sidelines of the two-day inaugural conference on “border security” (BSI), hosted by Morocco in El Jadida.Composed of 4 pillars, this strategy provides a strategic framework for states to elaborate global responses to terrorism based on human rights and the law. The first pillar provides measures to eradicate conditions propitious for spreading terrorism, the second concerns measures to prevent and combat terrorism, the third includes measures to reinforce the UN’s/states’ capacity to prevent and combat terrorism, and the fourth involves measures to ensure the respect of human rights and the rule of law as a fundamental basis to fight terrorism.  Since 2006, the implementation of the Strategy progressed thanks to efforts by member states, supported by UN bodies, but much remains to be done, said the note. The inaugural conference of the joint initiative by the UN Counter-Terrorism Centre (UNCCT) and the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) on “border security” (BSI) opened, on Tuesday in El Jadida with the participation of over 30 countries. This event, which will run until July 22, is a platform to discuss and analyze shortcomings related to terrorism and border security. It is also an occasion to share good practices regarding cooperative frontier management. read more

Police officers serving with the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) are helping train their counterparts in southern Sudan on providing security during the upcoming referenda on the self-determination of the region.Some 40 officers from the Southern Sudan Police Service (SSPS) have arrived in Juba to start the five-day course, UNMIS said in a statement yesterday.The training for the second batch of officers receiving the training was inaugurated by Ann-Marie Orler, Police Adviser and Director in the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations.The referenda are provided for in the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), which was signed in 2005 and formally ended two decades of civil war between the northern-based Government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) in the south. Following the agreement, the SPLM formed the autonomous Government of Southern Sudan.Inhabitants of southern Sudan will vote on 9 January next year on whether to secede from Sudan or remain united with the rest of the country. On the same day, residents of Abyei area in central Sudan will vote separately on whether to retain Abyei’s special administrative status in the north or become part of southern Sudan.“I understand that we are entering a very challenging moment of the CPA, so we as UNMIS would like to give advice to the police service… and train them on democratic transformations and policing,” said Ms. Orler, who arrived in southern Sudan on Sunday for a three-day visit.Organized by the SSPS, UN Police (UNPOL) and Norway, the training course has drawn a total of 120 officers from all 10 southern Sudanese states. They will then share their new skills with their colleagues when they return to their bases.“We need the referendum to be peaceful,” said SSPS Deputy Inspector General Gordon Micah Kur. “For it to be peaceful, it requires proper efforts exerted by the police,” he added.Mr. Kur said the police will be responsible for overseeing the conduct of the referenda and safeguarding the security of the ballot boxes during the tabulation of votes.Ms. Orler said one of the challenges facing the SSPS is lack of experience and instruction in law enforcement for police officers before they enlist in the force. “We will exert every effort to professionalize them,” she said.Police Captain Andrew Jagei said he was looking forward to the training course. “I will better my people by ensuring that the referendum receives maximum security,” he said. 14 September 2010Police officers serving with the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) are helping train their counterparts in southern Sudan on providing security during the upcoming referenda on the self-determination of the region. read more

“Our objective is to deliver equal rights and opportunity to all, to eradicate extreme poverty and to set the world on a sustainable development path,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said at a news conference at UN Headquarters to launch the International Conference on Population and Development Global Review Report.The International Conference on Population and Development (IPCD), held in Cairo in 1994, was a milestone in the history of population and development, as well as in the history of women’s rights. A total of 179 Governments signed up to the ICPD Programme of Action, which set out to provide universal access to family planning and sexual and reproductive health services and reproductive rights, and deliver gender equality, empowerment of women and equal access to education for girls.The Programme of Action also sought to address the individual, social and economic impact of urbanization and migration, as well as support sustainable development and address environmental issues associated with population changes.“It affirmed sexual and reproductive health as a fundamental human right,” Mr. Ban said of the Conference. “And it emphasized that empowering women and girls is key to ensuring the well-being of individuals, families, nations and our world.”He noted that the past two decades have seen “considerable” advances in equality and empowerment for women, global health and life expectancy, and education for girls, adding that much has been accomplished through the framework of the global anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). “But much remains to be done,” he said, noting that the report launched today highlights the enormous inequalities that remain in the realization of human rights and access to vital services, as well as new challenges and opportunities related to population growth, changing age structures, rapid urbanization and migration.“We need to establish common policy responses to the yearnings of people everywhere for a better life,” stated the Secretary-General.Babatunde Osotimehin, Executive Director of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), recalled the “ground-breaking consensus” forged at the Cairo Conference.“Delegates from all regions and cultures recognized that increasing social, economic and political equality and access to sexual and reproductive health and rights is the basis for individual well-being, lower population growth and sustainable development. The evidence of the report launched today supports this consensus.” While describing some of the achievements cited in the report, Dr. Osotimehin said that progress over the past 20 years does not tell the whole story. “The report reveals in stark detail the persistent inequalities and discrimination that threaten to derail development. In many countries and regions, progress is limited to the wealthy with enormous numbers of people excluded from the process and benefits of development,” he said.“More than half of the absolute gains in global income from 1988 to 2008 went to the richest 5 per cent and none went to the bottom 10 per cent. In the poorest communities, women’s status, maternal death, child marriage and many of the concerns of Cairo have seen too little progress over the past two decades,” he added.Among other challenges, he noted that around 800 women die daily while giving birth; one in three women worldwide report having experienced physical or sexual abuse; and one in three girls in the developing world is married before the age of 18, despite the fact that marriage under 18 is illegal in 158 countries. The Executive Director went on to add that there is no country today in which women are equal to men in political and economic power. In addition, too many people, particularly the poor, live without access to sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning. Indeed, more than 200 million women in the developing world who want contraception are not getting it.“Twenty years on, we still have a long way to go in realizing the vision of Cairo,” said Dr. Osotimehin. “But the ICPD 20-year review shows us that the vision is still as relevant today as it was in 1994.” read more

Regional Chairman Genevieve AllenFollowing the termination of a contractual agreement between the Region 4 Executives and contractor; Navin and Sons, for the construction of a new health centre at Supply, East Bank Demerara, Chairwoman Genevieve Allen has revealed that bids for the project will be re-invited sometime early next year.Allen made this disclosure to INews on the sidelines of an event hosted at the National Cultural Centre earlier today (Wednesday).“Works are currently not in progress because we have realised that there were some substandard work that was done” Allen noted.“With the termination of the contractor it means therefore that the works will have to be advertised so that another contractor can begin works…so work is expected to recommence early next year,” Allen revealed.Asked whether or not legal action is an option at this point, against the contractor, the Chairperson noted that the contractor was already informed of what is required of him and the Region is working along to ensure he meets the necessary requirements.It was only recently reported in sections of the media that the contractor was ordered to repay the Region for its shoddy foundation works.Back in August, concerns over the quality of the work and the actions of the contractor resulted in a screeching halt of the project.The issue which came up at the Regional Democratic Council’s (RDC) monthly meeting was disclosed by the Regional Executive Officer, Pauline Lucas who revealed several unsavoury details about the project.According to the Region’s Public Relations Department, one of the details she revealed is that the contractor, Navin and Sons, was ordered by the Clerk of Works to cease casting the foundation of the centre.Earlier last month, the contractor was ordered to correct the inferior works.

first_imgA BOMB CLAIMED by the Pakistani Taliban has killed 20 soldiers and wounded 30 after it ripped through a military convoy in the restive northwest of the country.The attack, one of the deadliest to hit Pakistani security forces in recent years, happened in the city of Bannu near the North Waziristan tribal region which is a stronghold of militants linked to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.“A vehicle-borne improvised explosive device caused the blast,” a senior military official told AFP, adding the exact circumstances were unclear.An official statement said 20 soldiers were killed and 30 injured in the attack, which hit one of the vehicles in the convoy at 8:45 am local time.The convoy was about to leave for the town of Razmak in North Waziristan when the blast hit one of the civilian vehicles hired to move troops.Taliban ‘ready for talks’Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesman Shahidullah Shahid claimed responsibility.“It was part of our fight against a secular system,” he said by telephone from an undisclosed location.“We will carry out more such attacks in future,” he said, adding the Taliban were seeking revenge for the deaths of their former chief Hakimullah Mehsud and deputy Waliur Rehman — both killed in US drone attacks.The Taliban vowed they would not engage in any dialogue with the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif following the death of Mehsud.But Shahid said today that the group “is ready for meaningful negotiations despite facing huge leadership losses, if the government proves its authority and sincerity” by halting drone attacks and withdrawing troops from tribal areas.Taliban insurgents have led a bloody campaign against the Pakistani state since 2007, staging hundreds of attacks on security forces and government targets.- © AFP, 2014Read: Plastic bullets fired as hundreds protest Turkey internet restrictionsRead: Fractured Syrian opposition agrees to join peace talkslast_img read more

In light of this, the minister said the legislation will be reviewed after 12 months.The regulations will be introduced once the legislation is finalised and approval by the Office of the Attorney General, and once the required equipment for measuring the minimum passing distance has been procured by the gardaí.Until then, the Road Safety Authority will be launching an awareness campaign in the coming days.Tesco ‘unable to make most home deliveries’ today due to the treacherous conditions>Dáil suspended for the rest of the week due to the ‘the Beast from the East’> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article NEW LEGISLATION REQUIRING drivers to allow a minimum passing distance for cyclists will soon be introduced.Confirming the new measures today, Minister for Transport Shane Ross said the new rules will save lives.The law will require drivers to allow one metre when passing cyclists on roads with a speed limit under 50 km/h and 1.5 metre on roads with a limit of 50km/h or above.Speaking today, Ross said he has been extremely concerned about the rise in cyclists fatalities on Irish roads.In 2017, there were 15 cyclists killed, which was a 50% increase on 2016.Road deaths“Clearly this is an intolerable situation which has to change. Every life lost on our roads is a tragedy and as Minister for Transport, I am committed to do everything within my power to prevent preventable road deaths,” he said.Cyclists have claimed the new law is much-needed, however, there were concerns about the perceived difficulties in enforcing it. A petition with 6,500 signatures calling for a change in the law was handed in to the minister last week.The minister said research was undertaken into other jurisdictions that apply a minimum passing distance to see if such legislation would benefit Irish cyclists.A new report by the Road Safety Authority, published today, states that little conclusive evidence is currently available to support or rebut claims that minimum passing distance legislation will specifically address cyclist fatalities.However, it states that greater awareness by both motorists and cyclists while overtaking was recognised as having safety benefits.

first_imgThe only catch here is there can’t be a button or link that allows the customer to purchase that content outside of the app. As Mac Rumors notes, the removal of the rule necessitating the corresponding subscription deal at the same or better price now allows publishers to raise their pricing to pad Apple’s 30 percent cut, which, of course, still remains intact. It also appears that the other sticking point for publishers, detailed subscriber data, has not been changed either. Apple has changed its rules for in-app subscriptions and content access in the App Store. Reports are indicating that the most significant change is access to content purchased outside of the app without a corresponding in-app subscription requirement, and a concomitant relaxation of pricing requirements.In February, Apple released its app subscription service, which debuted with the launch of News Corp.’s The Daily. The subscription service rules were set to take effect at the end of this month. Until now, Apple required publishers that wanted to offer subscription deals outside of the app to include the same or better offer inside the app. Also, publishers couldn’t provide direct links inside the app to purchase content outside the app. Here’s what Apple CEO Steve Jobs said when the company announced is subscription plan in February: “All we require is that, if a publisher is making a subscription offer outside of the app, the same (or better) offer be made inside the app, so that customers can easily subscribe with one-click right in the app.”The new rules, as initially reported by Mac Rumors’ Jordan Golson, now let apps link to purchased or subscription content outside of the app without also requiring a similar or better deal in the App Store. All Things D’s Peter Kafka raises another point—that the new rules could pose significant problems for apps such as Amazon’s Kindle app, which has a button that delivers customers right into the Kindle store.Up to this point, big publishers have been split on their acceptance of the rules in general. Conde Nast and Hearst just started selling subs via iTunes and the Financial Times decided to forego an iOS app, instead launching an HTML5 Web app, freeing it from any of Apple’s App Store requirements.While the rule adjustment does allow for greater outbound content and pricing flexibility, it’s not a wholesale change to the model. Publishers that want to play within the walls of the App Store still have to swallow the 30 percent cut, limited subscriber information and the inability to direct customers to Web-based content offers.last_img read more

Lets find out.Apple Mobile Device SupportThe program is required when you sync data between iTunes and Apple mobile devices such as the iPad, iPhone, or the iPod. If you uninstall the program, iTunes continues to work. You won’t be able to sync data to Apple devices anymore using iTunes however because of the missing component.Note that uninstalling Apple Mobile Device Support does not remove the iPod Service.How to remove it:Tap on the Windows-key, type appwiz.cpl, and hit the Enter-key. This opens the “Remove a Program” control panel applet. (see all Control Panel files here)-Locate Apple Mobile Device Support on the list of installed programs, right-click on the entry, and select uninstall. Follow the instructions to remove it from the Windows PC.Apple Software UpdateApple Software Update is Apple’s automatic updating software. The program, among other things, uses a scheduled tasks to check for updates once a week.If you remove the program, iTunes will continue to work. The one downside is that you need to check for updates manually, and install them manually as well after removing the component.If you remove the program, the scheduled task is removed automatically as well.How to remove it:Open the “Remove a program” control panel applet again if you have closed it.Locate Apple Software Update there, right-click on the entry, and select the uninstall option from the context menu. Follow the dialog that opens.Apple Application Support 32-bit / 64-bitNote: iTunes won’t start if you remove Apple Application Support from the Windows machine. The iTunes software displays an error message on start:A required iTunes component is not installed. Please repair or reinstall iTunes (-45075)You may remove the 32-bit version however and keep the 64-bit version installed, and iTunes will start up fine. I did not notice any issues running the software, but some functionality may be limited or not available if you remove one of the components.Note that iTunes may freeze if you connect an iOS device to the machine.How to remove it:Use the instructions above to open the “remove a program” control panel applet.Locate Apple Application Support 32-bit, right-click on the entry, and select uninstall from the context menu.Do the same for Apple Application Support 64-bit.BounjourThe Bonjour service can’t be found. Bonjour is required for sharing music with others, playing music through AirPlay speakers, and connecting to Apple TV, and using the iPhone and iPod touch remote. To repair this issue, uninstall iTunes, then install iTunes again.Bonjour is required for quite a bit of functionality, especially when it comes to the sharing of music, use of AirPlay speakers, AppleTV, and remotes.You may remove Bonjour from the Windows system, and iTunes will continue to load and function. Any component or feature that requires Bonjour however will stop working.How to remove it:Load the Remove a Program Control Panel applet.Locate Bonjour on the list of installed programs, right-click on it, and select uninstall.LeftoversWhile you can remove most of the extra programs that iTunes installs alongside the main application, you cannot disable or remove some of the added components using this methodology.iPod Service remains installed as a service. You can load services.msc, double-click on the service, and switch to the startup type disabled, and hit the stop button to stop it in that session. The component is required to communicate with iPods and mobile phones.iTunesHelper.exe is added to the startup of the Windows operating system. I suggest you use a program like Autoruns to disable the autostart entry. You find iTunesHelper.exe listed under logon when you run the program.Closing WordsYou can remove most of the extra software that Apple installs alongside its iTunes software. While you may not want to do so if you connect an iPhone, iPad or iPod to the device regularly, or use other Apple hardware and functionality that is powered by iTunes, users who don’t may remove the programs and extra components to speed up system load, free up disk space, and avoid any security or stability issues by those programs.It is rather unfortunate that the iTunes installer is not user friendly by offering options to customize the installation of these extra components.Now You: do you use iTunes? How do you handle these extra applications and services?SummaryArticle NameHow to remove extra iTunes components on WindowsDescriptionThe guide analyses the extra components that Apple’s iTunes software installs alongside the main program, and highlights which of those you can remove without issues.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgCredit Standards Relax at Year-End After loosening steadily for several months, credit standards for mortgage loans ended 2013 at their lowest level all year, according to the December “”Origination Insight Report””: from “”Ellie Mae.””:[IMAGE]The average FICO score for a first-lien loan closed in December was 727, down from 729 the previous month and 748 a year ago. Just under one-third of loans–31 percent–had FICO scores of less than 700 in December, up 10 percentage points from December 2012, according to Ellie Mae.The average loan-to-value (LTV) ratio for a loan closed in December was 82. LTV hovered between 79 and 82 all year. Debt-to-income ratio also ended the year with a high–39 percent, according to Ellie Mae. December’s closing rate was 54.3 percent, a little higher than November’s rate of 53.1 percent. Purchase loans made up a greater share of December’s closed loans than refinance loans, following a trend started in the second half of the year. [COLUMN_BREAK]Purchase loans accounted for 54 percent of loans, while refinances accounted for 46 percent. This is little changed from November’s 55-45 percent split. However, it is a significant shift from a year ago when purchase loans made up just 31 percent of loans and refinances accounted for 69 percent. “”HARP [Home Affordable Refinance Program]-related refinancing activity increased for the second month in a row, as conventional refinances at 95 percent-plus LTV rose to 12.1 percent in December, the highest they’ve been since August 2013,”” “”pointed out””: Jonathan Corr, president and COO of Ellie Mae. Conventional loans accounted for 69 percent of loans originated in December, while Federal Housing Administration-backed loans accounted for about 20 percent, unchanged from November. Interest rates on all types of loans increased over the month, according to Ellie Mae. The average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate loan closed in December was 4.59 percent, up from 4.53 percent in November. The average rate for a 15-year fixed-rate loan was 15.1 percent, up from 14.5 percent in November. The average rate for an adjustable-rate mortgage loan closed in December was 6.6 percent, up from 5.8 percent in November. Loans originated in December took an average 43 days to close, up slightly from 42 days in November but down from 55 days a year ago. Purchase loans took longer to close at 46 days, while refinance loans closed in about 40 days, according to Ellie Mae. Both are down from a year ago, when they took 51 days and 57 days to close, respectively.

first_imgBy Evie AndreouPolice on Friday said they have busted two drug rings while they are on the tracks of a third one, after seizing close to 60 kilos of drugs and arresting five people on three separate occasions.According to the head of the drug squad, Stelios Sergides, police on Thursday seized over 57kg of cannabis and cocaine on three separate occasions in Larnaca, in Paphos airport and in Peyia, which is also in Paphos.“In total 57.3kg of cannabis and 35 grammes of cocaine were seized,” Sergides said, adding that police believe they have dismantled two criminal groups, in the cases of Peyia and Larnaca, “and we are on the track of a third criminal group, which concerns the case of Paphos airport.”The biggest quantity, 32kg, was seized in Larnaca where police arrested a 24-year-old man who was remanded on Friday for eight days.The man was detained after drug squad officers intercepted his car on the Larnaca to Limassol motorway at around 6.30 pm Thursday and found 5.5kg of cannabis.Officers then searched a farm owned by the suspect’s family in Larnaca where they found an additional 26.5kg of cannabis in 24 packages wrapped in plastic.The man, Sergides said, was under police surveillance after a tip -off involving him in trafficking of large quantities of drugs in Larnaca and other areas.“Investigations so far, point out to a criminal group involvement in the case,” he said.Sergides added that they would search for his associates, and find out how the drugs were imported in the country with the help of Europol and Interpol.Earlier on Thursday, at around 6.10 pm, police in Paphos seized some 25kg of cannabis found in the luggage of a 30-year-old woman.The woman had just arrived at Paphos airport from Athens and was meant to deliver the drugs in Nicosia.Sergides said that after the woman’s allegations, an attempt was made to monitor the delivery without a positive result.According to Sergides, the 30-year-old – who was too remanded for eight days – said she had arranged to transfer drugs to Cyprus on behalf of another person for a fee as she was having financial problems.He said that they are looking for the persons who would receive the drugs but also the supplier. A request would be made to Europol and Interpol, he said.The third case concerns two 20-year-old men who were arrested after police finding close to 600 grammes of cannabis.Investigation had started on Tuesday, after a container was found buried in an open space in Peyia, with 18 packages wrapped in plastic, holding some 504 grammes of cannabis.The area was put under surveillance and on Thursday at 1.45 pm, the two suspects were seen approaching the area and opening the container.Officers made their appearance, prompting one of the suspects to try to escape, police said. He was caught after officers fired one warning shot in the air.At 3.25 pm, drug squad officers intercepted a vehicle driven by a 22-year-old in Paphos and found one gramme of cocaine in his possession.The arrest was followed by a search of his home where police found 34 grammes of cocaine and 11 grammes of cannabis.One of the two suspects had tried to escape, Sergides said, but stopped after a shot was fired by the  officer.He said they will investigate to locate the person who was supplying to the two suspects the drugs and that police will also scrutinise the two men’s finances. Police will seek a court order for access to their bank accounts. They were remanded on Friday for seven days.Sergides said that the 22-year-old brother of one of the two suspects had also been arrested earlier on Friday for the possession of 11 gr of cannabis and 35 gr of cocaine.At 3.25pm, drug squad officers intercepted a vehicle driven by the 22-year-old in Paphos and found one gr of cocaine in his possession. The arrest was followed by a search of his home where police found 34 gr of cocaine, 11 gr of cannabis and €1,150 in cash. He was remanded for six days. You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

to the spread between Clinton and Sanders If O’Malley voters went with their hearts they’d be throwing away their vote If they dropped him they could tip the balance for the winner Iowa Democrats don’t necessarily have to choose however Under the state’s complicated system of caucusing they can show up at their polling place and cast their lot with O’Malley If he fails to get 15% of the

fact the Clinton campaign is counting on that to happen in many precincts reaching out to O’Malley supporters to be their second choice Some political reformers think a similar system could help solve a perennial problem in US politics: the third-party spoiler Instead of caucusing in person though voters would simply be asked to mark their second-choice preferences on their normal ballots If no candidate reached 50% the results would be retabulated adding in the second-choice picks of people who voted for a losing candidate The system is called “instant-runoff voting” because it works the same way as a runoff in which voters are asked to choose between the top two contenders It’s used in municipal elections in more than 10 American cities and widely used in university and other institutional elections including Oscar voting for Best Picture And some advocates are calling for the instant-runoff vote to become the standard across the country arguing that it’s more fair to voters and candidates alike While it’s unlikely to happen nationwide anytime soon instant-runoff voting makes sense for the ways in which the American political system is quickly changing See Pictures

because voters don’t have to choose between voting with their heads and voting with their hearts “You can vote freely for whom you really like and still make sure you have a vote thats effective if you end up voting for a second choice” says Rob Richie executive director of FairVote formerly known as the Center for Voting and Democracy a nonprofit organization devoted to fairness in elections And it ensures that voters who support fringe candidates still have their voices heard among the mainstream options Richie says the instant-runoff voting system is also better for candidates since it removes the stigma of third-party campaigns and adds nuance to the race Under this voting system third-party candidates aren’t stealing votes from other campaigns and mainstream candidates can win by getting secondary support from the broadest possible base That helps push candidates to appeal to a broader spectrum of the population racing to not only be voters’ first choice but also their second or third “It helps resolve that conflict for both sides” Richie says “The third-party candidate gets a free shot and the major-party candidate gets their fair share" Iowa Caucus results 2016 If the rise of Sanders and Donald Trump has said anything about 2016 America it’s that voters want to get outside the traditional avenues of power That tendency Richie says means that the instant-runoff system might be a better fit for an increasingly fragmented political process “I think were going to see more not fewer multi-candidate races” he says “Its the nature of the Internet the nature of modern society and people are not fitting into boxes as neatly as before” He noted that Trump and Sanders are both examples of candidates who might not fit so easily into the two-party system and that many of their supporters are previously unaffiliated voters The instant-runoff process is better suited for that In fact an instant-runoff system might have helped some Republicans this year in Iowa

Hillary Clinton For Texas Republican Jonathan Neerman the answer is neither The former Dallas County party chairman told TIME that he would “never” vote for Trump but he would “absolutely not” vote for Clinton “That would leave me with leaving the top of the ticket blank” Neerman explained “I will fill out the rest of my ballot for every other Republican candidate I just wont vote for Donald Trump and I certainly wont vote for Hillary Clinton” Asked how he was handling Trump’s being the presumptive nominee he joked: “With alcohol” It’s a painful choice for many lifelong Republicans

stepped off the plane [from Lebanon] and arrived to America” and that this will be the first election where he does not cast a ballot for the Republican nominee “This was a very tough decision to make” he said “Trump represents everything I left behind in the Middle East and nothing of what I immigrated for” But Ramadan falls into Neerman’s camp: not voting for Trump does not mean he will vote for Clinton “I am never Trump never Hillary” he said “Its straight up Hillary and Trump are two sides of the same coin” Ramadan said he will likely leave the top of the ballot blank and has suspended
