Viktor Troshenkov of the Russian Academy of Sciences told the Tass news agency that the fireball could be part of a prolific meteor shower known as the Leonids, which peaks at this time of year. He said he felt Thursday's fireball likely wasn't the sole meteorite but others maybe were not seen due to thick clouds elsewhere. Troshenkov told Tass that meteor showers can be even stronger. The Leonids reach their maximum once every 33 years -- and the last time that happened was in 1998, he said. Amateur astronomers in the Arctic then saw about 1,000 meteors, 40 meteorites and one fireball in just one night.

Date: Discipline: Source: Product number: Length: Also Available in: description In December 1997 United Rentals (URI) went public on the NYSE. Ten years later, during the peak of the economic meltdown, the company's performance was in decline. United Rentals had experienced its share of problems in the prior years and was still struggling to emerge from this turmoil. In the spring of 2008, the recession had decimated the company's core business, construction equipment rental. The economic downturn resulted in a significant decrease in North American construction and industrial activities and had adversely affected the company's revenues and operating result. The stock of the company quickly fell from the mid-$30 range in late 2007 to $3 in March 2009. In addition, two of the company's former chief financial officers had been charged with securities fraud and otherviolations, by both the U.S. Attorney's office and the SEC. The Board was faced with the resignation of the founder and chairman, management succession issues, the failed merger with Cerberus, and the lawsuit in Delaware. The Board was responsible for overseeing the change in a number of senior management and board positions which became increasingly difficult due to the turmoil and poor performance of the company. Recruiting and retaining talent in senior management and the board was central to the success of the company, which relied on their people for strong performance. In addition the company's total indebtedness was approximately $3.3 billion, including $146 million of subordinated convertible debenture. The company's substantial indebtedness had the potential to have adverse consequences in a number of ways, including: increase their

other meetings she had chaired. Stockholders were about to vote on a transaction that was perhaps the ultimate fulfillment of the founders' original vision. She was reminded of the company's founding just 15 years earlier and its meteoric growth. With a considerable sense of achievement and satisfaction, she reflected on her tenure as board chair commencing five years ago. Elected to the board in 2006 and then unanimously selected by her peers as Chairman in June 2008, Britell led the board through the aftermath of a tumultuous period that included senior management and board changes, a SEC investigation, financial restatements, the jilting of the company by Cerberus Capital Management in a transaction to acquire URI, and the deepest recession to hit the global economy since the Great Depression.At the meeting, stockholders would be asked to consider approval of a merger agreement between URI, the largest equipment rental company in the world, with RSC, the second largest equipment rental company in the world and URI's largest competitor. The meeting would mark the triumph of a new governance model and company strategy whose development and implementation Britell and CEO Michael Kneeland had led. As Britell reflected on the hard won gains, she also looked forward to the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead as the company managed the integration of RSC's operations with URI and the integration of three new board members from the acquired company. She also reflected on how governance and strategy could continue to evolve as the company planned for the next five years. learning

your health, hence the term passive tolerance. This is the finding of seven studies carried out over 10 years in the United States, Europe and South Africa, led by a team of social psychologists at the University of Oxford and published in the journal of the United States National Academy of Sciences. They were careful to rule out the most obvious explanation for their finding, social psychologists Miles Hewstone and Katharina Schmid explain – namely, that the higher levels of tolerance in more diverse neighbourhoods are a result of more tolerant people choosing to live there. Two of the studies were conducted over several years and tracked the same individuals, showing how attitudes changed. Even prejudiced people showed a greater degree of tolerance over time if they lived inpeople in a modern welfare state". The left faces a nasty conundrum as two of its most sacred shibboleths come into conflict: ethnic diversity and the solidarity necessary for a strong welfare state. This new research throws these conclusions into question. Putnam's work may, after all, have been misleading. In fact, rather than hunkering down, living in a mixed neighbourhood helps you open up. In some ways this vindicates many people's anecdotal experience of their own enjoyment of diversity in their neighbourhoods, and the sense that the most pronounced fear and prejudice is found in exclusively white areas. The research also vindicates the case for local initiatives to foster social exchange and build community relationships. From carnivals to coffee mornings, jumble sales to fun days in the park – all

these are opportunities to generate passive tolerance. Sadly, however, many of these initiatives have fallen victim to local authority funding cuts. The impact of austerity has been compounded by a loss of confidence – in which Putnam's research played its part – about fostering strong diverse communities. Multiculturalism has fallen from favour, misunderstood and maligned as the set of ideas that guided community relations for a generation. No one was more acutely aware of this danger than Putnam himself when he talked to me on the publication of his research in 2007, the timing made the danger all the more acute in the aftermath of 7/7 bombings. Since then the theme of integration has come to dominate – with its coercive and conformist overtones. The result has been ahad to fight Ahenobarbus like 4 times because he kept letting him go. With that, Caesar turned into an absolute master by making reasonable calculated risks and surviving them. By the point he was clearing the last of the Pompeans in Africa at the end of the Civil War, he didn't even leave his tent to give commands -- so confident and expertised in warfare that he didn't even have to see the field of battle. This is a bit of a ramble. I really admire Julius Caesar and think there's so much to learn by studying his life and habits. ~~~ unFou "By the point he was clearing the last of the Pompeans in Africa at the end of the Civil War, he didn't even leave his tent to give commands" Was this an indication of the experience and initiative

In particular, his most capable commander during the Gallic Wars, Labienus, defected to the Pompey early in the Civil War, and was one of Caesar's chief opponents during his African campaign. As an interesting note, it seems Labienus likely defected from Caesar for two reasons: 1\. At the beginning of the Civil War it looked extremely unlikely Caesar would win. 2\. Labienus felt as though Caesar took more credit than he ought to have in the Gallic Wars, depriving him of his "auctoritas" (sort of prestige) he felt he rightfully deserved. Caesar's skilled defeat of Pompey and Labienus show his military skill outside of his use of good commanders. ~~~ fapjacks I hope you see this after all this time.

But by Tacitus's day, the act of writing an objective history was not a novelty, and in fact he complains in the beginning of his text that he is undertaking the work because he thinks his peers, also ostensibly engaged in objective history, have not been objective enough out of fear or hatred when covering the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nero.

office more unusual. During his time leading Russia, Putin has dealt with four separate U.S. presidents as well as four British prime ministers and two German chancellors. The Kremlin may also dispute the methodology, as Putin wasn't president for all of his time in office. He first became prime minister of Russia on Aug. 16, 1999, before entering the presidential office May 7 the next year. Later, as the Russian Constitution limits the president to two consecutive terms, Putin stepped out of the Kremlin in 2008 while his prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, became president. However, most analysts agree that Putin still held the real power during that "tandem" presidency. He returned to the presidency in 2012. Putin's increasingly lengthy time in office may not appear to be a problem to manyRussians - as widely noted, his approval ratings remain extraordinarily high. He is widely expected to stand to be nominated as a presidential candidate again for next year's elections, according to reports in the Russian media. But there are some signs of a malaise setting in; some Russians have begun to share cynical jokes about Putin that resemble those told during the Brezhnev era. Turnout in recent local elections was low, and some polls suggest that a significant minority of the country is not sure whether they want Putin to run for reelection. Still, Putin is likely to win next year's election if he runs - potentially putting him in office until 2024 (after Medvedev left office, presidential terms were increased from four to six years).

He used blue and red police lights on his car. He had a tactical vest that said “federal agent.” Johnston described his job on Facebook as “fugitive apprehension” for the Department of Homeland Security, which includes ICE.

For many Israelis, Peres is regarded as the founding generation who assisted in the establishment of the Jewish State. The groundbreaking, first-time-ever peace agreement between Israel and Palestine was also signed under his pen. Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas told the i24News that “Peres’ death is a great loss to humanity and the region.” But he remains as a controversial figure among Palestinians. He was also unloved by right-wing Israelis for his trying to promote peace between two sides, which prevented him to break into the prime minister's post. “For the Palestinians, he will be seen as the man who has not implemented the Oslo Accords,” Leila

Shahid, the former Palestinian ambassador in the European Union, commented in an interview on France Info on Wednesday. Diana Buttu, a former Palestinian peace negotiator commented that many will remember Peres as a “war criminal”. “He's somebody who believed in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine,” added Buttu. Al Jazeera's Middle East analyst Yehia Ghanem said in an interview that “people who are praising him [Peres] supported Israel and all of its crimes throughout its history.” Referring to the 1996 Qana Massacre, which killed at least 106 people in a village in Southern Lebanon, he described the bloodshed as a war crime followed by Peres’ command as the Prime Minister. After the announcement of his death by his son, world leaders pay tribute on Wednesday. Calling him “a soldier for Israel” and “a friend”,US president Barack Obama expressed his sorrow in a White House statement that he felt the Americans are “in his debt”. He praised Peres’ diplomatic efforts on bringing together Israel and the US: “no one did more over so many years as Shimon Peres to build the alliance between our two countries”. He was hailed as the “political giant” by Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and “an optimist about the prospects for reconciliation and peace” by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Peres won the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, jointly with Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the former Palestinian president Yasser Arafat, for their role in negotiating the Oslo Accords.

During the 1950s, he reached a secret agreement with France to build a nuclear reactor at Dimona in the Negev desert. According to the US-based Nuclear Threat Initiative, the nuclear power reactor can produce estimated 100 and 200 nuclear warheads and remains as the biggest and sole nuclear armed-power in the Middle East. Peres dedicated the second half in pursuit of bringing peace to his country. Before taken up the post of the ninth president of Israel in 2007, he served twice as prime minister, first between 1984 and 1986 with Likud; then later again after the assassination of former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995. He stayed in power until 1996when he lost the election to Benjamin Netanyahu whom has been in premiership up to date. In his later years, he became Israel's moderate face under the hardheaded leadership of Netanyahu. He insisted many times that peace between Israel and Palestine is around the corner and will not hesitate “to extend my life for a year or two” to promote that goal, told Peres in a 2013 interview. He once spoke at the UN that “The time has come to comprehend that the real triumph is in the harvest of peace, not in the seeds of another war.” However, he never had been fully entrusted by Israeli voters. “At the ballot box they preferred a stern right winger in government,”concluded analyst Anshel Pfeffer.

Consequently they were hot favourites, however Sheffield United rose to the occasion and on the day were marginally the better team. Nevertheless the Gunners quality eventually shone through and they scored the winner through the left foot of Ted Drake, who had recently returned to the team after a cartilage operation. A dispute between Wembley and the newsreel companiesresulted in the latter not being allowed inside the stadium to film the game.

Goalscorers: Wright (34), Linighan (119). Arsenal, in the last ever FA Cup final replay, became the first team to win the domestic cup double with a very late headed winner from Andy Linighan at rain swept Wembley. The Gunners had taken the lead in front of a low crowd of 62,267 after Ian Wright ran onto a Alan Smith flick and shot past Chris Woods, only for Wednesday to equalise with a deflected Chris Waddle shot past David Seaman.

The Gunners dominated exchanges in the second-half and went ahead from Freddie Ljungberg, only for Michael Owen to score a late brace to deny Arsenal in the Cardiff sunshine.

Joseph Engh was visiting his father in San Francisco six months ago when he noticed something was wrong. His 89-year-old father, Moy Ng, seemed surlier than usual, and a little forgetful. Ng had developed pneumonia, which had prompted Engh's visit, so Engh took his father to see his doctor. Ng, it turned out, has Alzheimer's disease - he might have had it for months or even years. But Ng lived alone, and with no family or close friends around to notice his memory loss or personality changes, getting him diagnosed and treated was a challenge. "The doctor had known for some time that my father was having a problem. But he kind of refused to get diagnosed," said Engh, 63, who lives in Seattle. Roughly 800,000 people in the United States haveis at risk, adult protective services should be contacted, he said. "I would talk to the person first, but don't leave it at that," Boxer said. "If, in your heart of hearts, you're worried they're not fine, you should take it a step further. I'd rather be wrong and embarrass the person a little bit than to miss this. ... You have to be tough in these situations." That's what Engh is learning now. His father, he said, was always difficult, but he gets angry, and sometimes even violent, when he's reminded of his Alzheimer's diagnosis. Engh realized that he couldn't leave his father entirely on his own, so at least for now, he lives part time in San Francisco to be near him - to take him to doctors' appointments,

Fighting continued in the morning, with both sides firing mortars and automatic weapons on each other's positions, while the Iraqi troops also responded with artillery. Clashes were most intense in the al-Bakr neighborhood. Sniper duels played out from rooftops in the mostly residential areas, where the majority of buildings are two stories high. The special forces launched a two-pronged assault deeper into Mosul's urban center on Friday, unleashing the most intense street battles against IS militants since the offensive to retake the city began nearly three weeks ago. At least seven special forces troops have been killed in

the fighting. More than 3,000 Iraqi troops took part in the assault under heavy U.S.-led coalition air support, but the pace of the fight also slowed as Iraqi forces moved from fighting in more rural areas with few civilians to the tight, narrow streets of Mosul proper. At least seven suicide attackers in explosives-laden vehicles attacked troops on Friday, five of whom were killed before nearing their targets. The operation to retake Mosul is expected to take weeks if not months. Moving from neighborhood to neighborhood in house-to-house battles through dense warrens of booby-trapped buildings is time consuming and Iraq's military has repeatedly opted for slower operations in an effort to minimize casualties. Some 1 million civilians still remain in the city, complicating the advance. IS militants have driven thousands ofresidents deeper into the city's built-up areas to be used as human shields, while hundreds of others have fled toward government-controlled territory and thousands have headed west into Syria. Mosul is the last major IS stronghold in Iraq, and expelling the militant group from the city would be a major blow to the survival of its self-styled "caliphate" that stretches into Syria. Iraqi forces have made uneven progress in closing in on the city since the operation began on Oct. 17. Advances have been slower from the south, with government troops still some 20 miles (35 kilometers) away. Kurdish fighters and Iraqi army units are deployed to the north, while government-sanctioned Shiite militias are sweeping in from the west to try to cut off any IS escape route.

suit. Ms. Young testified that the man had an object in his hand which she thought was a knife. He threatened her, placed the object against her head, and forced her to have intercourse with him. At approximately 5:00 a. m., just after the intruder left her apartment, Ms. Young called the police. She described the assailant as a bearded black male, wearing a toboggan and a jogging outfit with white stripes down the side. The description was dispatched to patrolling officers. At about 5:10 a. m., High Point police officer Neil Kearns saw defendant standing in a parking lot approximately three and one-half blocks from Ms. Young's apartment. He was wearing a two-piece, lime green jogging suit and a brown toboggan. Kearns stopped defendant and confirmed byradio the victim's description. Kearns placed defendant in his patrol car. Subsequently Kearns found on or near defendant some paperback books and a cigarette lighter, which Ms. Young later identified as having been missing from her apartment since the incident with her assailant. Defendant testified in his own behalf and offered evidence tending to show that around midnight on 21 April 1979, he began jogging and walking around High Point. He testified that he found the paperback books, the lighter and some cigarettes on the ground just before Kearns arrested him. Defendant denied committing any of the acts charged. The jury returned verdicts of guilty of first degree rape, first degree burglary and larceny. Defendant first assigns as error the denial of his motion to suppress physical evidence seized from him

that her assailant held [indicating] an "object" in his hand which was "roughly six or eight inches long"; that this object was "placed beside my head during the time of the sexual intercourse"; that she then "felt the cold metal of it." Later on cross-examination, Ms. Young testified, "I thought the object in [my assailant's] hand was a knife. He was holding it in his right hand, he was standing over me with it in his right hand." It is clear enough, therefore, that when Ms. Young testified that she "assumed" the object which she saw and felt was a knife, she was either giving her then instantaneous conclusion derived from "a variety of facts presented" to her senses or stating, in effect, that her impression, although indistinct, wasshe actually saw and felt at the time was not inconsistent with the object's being a screwdriver like State's Exhibit No. 1. She could not at trial be sure that it was a knife or a screwdriver. She was sure that it was six or eight inches long, that it felt cold and metallic against her head, and that what she saw and felt was consistent with its being either a knife or a screwdriver. The jury must have so understood her testimony. It was proper for her to so testify. By his third assignment of error, defendant contends that the trial court erred in sustaining the state's objection to his questioning the prosecutrix concerning prior acts of misconduct.

The primary defense was not that the witness was not in fact a victim, but that defendant was not the perpetrator. The witness never purported to identify defendant as her assailant. The state sought to establish this identity by other evidence. Defendant next assigns as error the denial of his motion to dismiss the charge of rape for insufficiency of the evidence. In support of this assignment, he argues that there was no direct identification evidence and that other circumstantial evidence was insufficient to identify him as the culprit. We disagree.

Within minutes of the alleged incident defendant was discovered three and one-half blocks away dressed substantially as Ms. Young had described her assailant.

Assuming the state's evidence to be true, we hold it ample to survive defendant's motion to dismiss. Defendant next contends the trial court erred in charging the jury on the doctrine of recent possession as it related to the rape charge.

complexity. ~~~ wazoox I've visited several caves this summer (Lascaux, Combarelles, Font-de-Gaume, Rouffignac, and a couple others) and there is a constant: the artists weren't amateurs, they were extremely skilled. First, in many places it was impossible at the time to see the entirety of the drawing at a glance because of the very low height, or the wall curvature, but the proportions are right anyway (most visited caves have been dug out; back then you had to crawl for hundreds of meters in pitch darkness to reach the drawings). Similarly, the animals are drawn with a very high anatomical precision. Even animals that didn't exist locally, like mammoths (which mean that the artist had seen mammoths earlier, very far away). ------ mcguire Interesting article.

As such, the rosters announced for both the men's and women's Pan Am teams today were not first choice.

2015 Pan Am games is very similar to that which they used at the U-20 World Cup in Toronto last summer. This is good news as Canada impressed in that competition before losing a narrow 2-0 game to the eventual champions from Germany. There are a couple of crossovers from the Canada 2015 team, and they will likely represent the core of this squad. This includes Kadeisha Buchanan, who has likely been the country's busiest player over the last couple of years but never turns down a call to represent les rouges. Joining her on the Pan Ams squad are recent World Cup standout Ashley Lawrence who scored Canada's lone goal against Netherlands on Monday, Jessie Fleming and Canadian third keeper Stephanie Labbe. The team, coached by Daniel Worthington, will alsoinclude a number of the standouts from the U-20 tournament, Janine Beckie chief among them. Nichelle Prince, Emma Fletcher and Kinley McNicholl have also been included. All this should give the Canadian team a strong chance to defend their Pan Am Games title. They kick off the tournament on July 11 and play in a group with Brazil, Costa Rica and Ecuador.

The first World War Z film owed part of its success to its leading cast Brad Pitt. Fortunately, the 53-year-old actor will reprise his role as Gerry Lane in the sequel.

Most of these children were reportedly under the age of 10. The Committee expressed further alarm at reports by United Nations observers of the continued indiscriminate acts of violence and killings against the civilian population and the increasing number of civilian victims, particularly children. “The Committee is deeply concerned that, since the beginning of protests in Syria in March 2011, hundreds of children have been killed, injured and detained, and thatpassages defined on the surfaces of the MEAs from outside.

The Bill seeks to amend the Representation of People Act, 1951 (RPA, 1951). The two key changes brought about by the Bill are: Even if a person is prohibited from voting due to being in police custody or in jail, as long as his name is entered on the electoral roll he shall not cease to be an elector. This implies that he can file nomination for an election. The definition of “disqualified” in the Act has been amended.

In addition the mainland market was for the first time wide open, provided that films were made as "co-productions" including mainland cast members, and did not concern themselves with banned politically charged topics like, say, letting the bad guy get away at the end of a movie, or showing supposedly real supernatural events, or, I don't know, mentioning Tibet.

John Bailey has been re-elected president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for a second term, the Academy announced on Tuesday evening. Bailey, a cinematographer, was first elected president last year. Although Academy presidents are permitted to serve four consecutive one-year terms, the upcoming term will be Bailey’s last. Because of term limits, he will have to leave the board next summer, which will make him ineligible for another term as president. Bailey’s films include “Ordinary People,” “The Big Chill” and “Groundhog Day.” He is the first member of the Cinematographers Branch to serve as Academy president. Also Read: Oscars: What Does It Take to Become a Member of the Motion Picture Academy Anyway? Four additional Academy officers were re-elected to their positions on the board: Lois Burwell asfirst vice president, Jim Gianopulos as treasurer, David Rubin as secretary and Nancy Utley as vice president. Former Academy president Sid Ganis, who returned to the board this year, and Writers Branch governor Larry Karaszewski were also elected to vice presidential posts. AMPAS presidents are almost invariably re-elected if they are eligible, and Bailey was expected to prevail in Tuesday night’s vote from the 54-member board. But the election came at stormy time for the Academy and a tricky one for its president, who in March was the subject of an AMPAS investigation over a sexual-harassment allegation. Also Read: Motion Picture Academy Clears John Bailey of Sexual Harassment Bailey was unanimously cleared by an Academy board – but the fact that the investigation was leaked to the press angered him and

his supporters, especially since details of the leak suggested that it had come from inside the Academy. In addition to that tension, the board has had a high-profile defection in recent months, when producer Bill Mechanic resigned his position in April with a scathing letter that criticized Academy CEO Dawn Hudson, the organization’s response to the #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite movements and the financial drain of the behind-schedule, over-budget Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Following that, several notable members of the Board of Governors, including Steven Spielberg and longtime Academy official Kathleen Kennedy, opted not to run for re-election to a board that some members feel has become too big and unwieldy and is hopelessly divided between above-the-line and below-the-line representatives. Also Read: A Long, Chaotic Emmys Season Ends With Voters Findinga Decent Compromise Over the last three years, the Academy has increased its size by more than 2,000 new members, growing by more than 25 percent. At the same time, viewership of the Oscars telecast, from which the Academy draws most of its operating income, have fallen steadily, hitting an all-time low in March, 2018. In that climate, Bailey will face a final year in office. And if he wants to come back for more, he is free to run again for the board, and the presidency, after a one-year hiatus.

Berlin attack: Tunisian fugitive 'had been under surveillance' Published duration 22 December 2016 Related Topics Berlin Christmas market attack 2016 image copyright BKA / HANDOUT image caption German federal police have released images of Anis Amri A Europe-wide manhunt is under way for the Tunisian man wanted for the lorry attack on a Christmas market in Berlin in which 12 people were killed. Anis Amri, 24, had been monitored earlier this year on suspicion of planning a robbery in order to pay for guns but surveillance was lifted for lack of evidence. Before entering Germany, he had served four years for arson in Italy. Monday evening's attack also left 49 people injured. A European arrest warrant was issued after Amri's residence permit was found in the cab of the lorry that left a trailof carnage at the market near west Berlin's most famous shopping street, the Kurfuerstendamm. The German authorities warn he could be armed and dangerous and are offering a reward of up to €100,000 (£84,000; $104,000) for information leading to his arrest. It is thought Amri may have been injured in a struggle with the Polish driver of the lorry, found murdered in the cab. On Thursday morning there were reports of police raids in the western city of Dortmund. Two apartments were searched and four people arrested, local media reported. Amri was reported by the Ruhrnachrichten news website to have lived in Dortmund from time to time. Residents at one block of flats recognised him from photos and said he had spent time with a German of Serbian origin who was detained

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reports that the suspect moved within the circle of an Islamist preacher, Ahmad Abdelazziz A, known as Abu Walaa, who was arrested in November image copyright German interior ministry image caption A French version of the police notice issued for Anis Amri A police notice lists six different aliases used by Amri, born on 22 December 1992, who at times tried to pass himself off as an Egyptian or Lebanese. The suspect was facing deportation as of June but there was a delay in receiving paperwork from Tunisia. History of crime A brother of the suspect in Tunisia, Abdelkader Amri, told AFP news agency he could not believe his eyes when he saw his relative's face in the media. "I'm in shock and can'tbelieve it's him who committed this crime," he said, before adding: "If he's guilty, he deserves every condemnation." The suspect has a history of crime: Amri's father and security sources told a Tunisian radio station that after leaving Tunisia about seven years ago, he had served four years in an Italian prison over a fire at a school He was also sentenced to five years in prison in Tunisia in absentia, reportedly for aggravated theft with violence An earlier suspect, a Pakistani asylum seeker, was freed from German custody on Tuesday, after officials admitted they had the wrong man. 'Struggle with driver' Some 49 people were also injured when the lorry was driven into crowds at the Breitscheidplatz Christmas market. So-called Islamic State (IS) said one of its militants carried out the attack but

offered no evidence. Driver Lukasz Urban, a Polish citizen, was found dead on the passenger seat with gunshot and stab wounds. Investigators believe the lorry was hijacked on Monday afternoon as it stood in an industrial zone in north-western Berlin, Germany's Bild tabloid reports. Mr Urban had stopped there after the delivery of Italian steel beams he was carrying was postponed until Tuesday. GPS data from the vehicle reportedly shows it made small movements "as if someone was learning how to drive it" before leaving for the city at 19:40 (18:40 GMT), heading for the Christmas market near the Kurfuerstendamm, Berlin's main shopping street.

copyright AFP image caption The only suspect was released on Tuesday, adding urgency to the manhunt There appears to be evidence that, despite being stabbed, Mr Urban wrestled his hijacker for the steering wheel. The post-mortem examination suggests that Mr Urban survived up until the attack and was shot dead when the truck came to a halt. No gun has been recovered. Police say they are acting on hundreds of tips from the public and are examining DNA traces from the cab of the truck. The IS group claimed the attack through its self-styled news agency, saying it was "in response to calls to target nationals of the coalition countries". Prosecutor Peter Frank told reporters that the style of attack and the choice of target suggested Islamic extremism.DC United 2, Atlanta United 1 | 2017 MLS Match Recap The founding MLS club knocked off their expansion counterparts for the second time in two tries on Wednesday, riding a gloriously-struck Patrick Nyarko side volley to a 2-1 win at RFK Stadium. The two sides traded goals in the midst of a lively first half, both keyed by their opponents' errors. First Atlanta exploited a slack back pass by Ian Harkes to race out on the break, with Julian Gressel finishing firmly at close range. Six minutes later Luciano Acosta intercepted a poor pass by Alec Kann and then compounded the goalkeeper's embarassment by beating him at the near post with a low worm-burner. The second stanza unfolded in similarly breathless fashion, yet despite many chances, Miguel Almiron and the

NYARKO GRABS SPOTLIGHT: MLS' worst in terms of goals scored, D.C. United's attack has been ailing lately – in fact, Acosta's opener snapped an open-play scoring drought that had stretched to nearly 700 minutes. But there was no sign of it on Wednesday, and Nyarko was a major reason why. Making just his third start in D.C.'s last 10 league games, the Ghanaian was lively down the left flank, forcing Tyrone Mears to defend more than usual and carving out chance after chance for his teammates.Post navigation Erika Hanzely Business News Goldsboro News-Argus “A recipe Adam Scott said came to him in a dream in the early 1900s has been selected by a Food & Wine magazine panel as runner-up in a national barbecue sauce contest.Described by one expert as a “”thin vinegary sauce with heat, like a hot pepper sauce,” Scott’s Barbecue Sauce finished as a runner-up among the vinegar based sauces.

kind of raunchy performances took place all over the island, even in the capital city of Taipei, but after authorities passed laws against it, it disappeared from urban settlements and moved to the country. The laws aren’t as easy to enforce there and people seem to enjoy going to a funeral knowing they’ll get some adult entertainment. Strippers usually arrive on the back of diesel trucks known as Electric Flower Cars, and perform in front of the dead and his mourners. The scantly-dressed girls do pole dancing, sing, and some even come down from their stage to interact with the audience (sit on their laps, give lap dances, shove their heads into their breasts, etc.). According to Nury Vittachi, funeral stripping was born around 25 years ago, when theTaiwanese mafia who ran the country’s nightclub scene, took over an important part of the country’s mortuary business. At one point, the mafia bosses decided to somehow combine the two businesses and increase their incomes. From then on, anyone who booked a funeral through one of their parlors also got a stripper at discount price. At first, people were a bit confused, but after they were told this would attract more mourners to the funeral, thus honoring the dead even more, they were sold. While Moskowitz didn’t see complete nudity while filming his documentary, he claims all the people he spoke with had seen Electric Flower Car girls perform in the nude.

Woyo! The real story behind Bob Marley’s “Buffalo Soldier” is coming to the silver screen, in a new documentary on the life and music of the song’s original writer, Noel G. Williams aka “King Sporty.” So says a new article in the Jamaica Observer. From working with Robert Nesta in the smoke-filled Hialeah TK studios, to selling Henry Stone the publishing rights for the platinum selling Timmy Thomas record “Why Can’t We Live Together,” Sporty led an impactful and influential life in music. He owned his own labels, where he wrote his own music, and registered all his own copyrights in his own name and publishing company, which also represented other songwriters, and bought and sold his and their works. These are key aspects of the music business that manyfail to learn, let alone exploit. Sporty moved from Jamaica to Miami in the 1960s, loved soul, funk, and dance music, married Betty Wright, and set in motion several chains of events still unfurling through the public consciousness today. Now, Canadian film director Noel Osborne, who has lived, worked, and recorded in Miami and is based in L.A., is bringing Sporty’s life back to light in a film called Irie The Film: Journey of a King. According to a piece by Howard Campbell in the Jamaica Observer, the film features interviews with Betty Wright, Ken Boothe, Earl Morgan of The Heptones, Bunny Wailer, Sizzla, Albert Minott of the Jolly Boys, Inner Circle, and more. Osborne knew Sporty for over twenty years, and was introduced to him by T.K. Records MVP, Fred

She found the cup; and noticed her parents asleep on chairs outside. She reached as far as she could to no avail. Defeated, she closed her eyes. In her mind, viewed the cup coming to her still outstretched arm and felt a splash. Her eyes bolted open; startled to be holding the cup she couldn’t even reach a mere moment ago, warm water dripped down her hand and wrist. Shock and panic began to overwhelm her, she tried to fake calmness as she sipped her water and gently placed the cup down on the bed rail. A nurse mustquietly exited the room – leaving a crowd of speechless and panicked doctors and scientists in his wake. “It appears that the case containing a weaponized smallpox virus is missing” stated the man, as calmly as possible to the room of colorless faces.

Shrugging it off as mosquito, she stayed calm – as the itching slowly spread across her shoulders and to her arms she began to worry. So close to home, Amy continued until she parked in her driveway. Only then did she look down and notice she was covered in pox. Realizing that this was more than just a bad reaction to a mosquito, she grabbed the box and ran to the basement – whatever she contracted had to have been from inside the box; if she could figure out what it was, she probably had the right antibiotics to combat it.

Scientists have successfully replicated the behaviour of a colony of ants on the move with the use of miniature robots, as reported in the journal PLOS Computational Biology. The researchers, based at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (Newark, USA) and at the Research Centre on Animal Cognition (Toulouse, France), aimed to discover how individual ants, when part of a moving colony, orient themselves in the labyrinthine pathways that stretch from their nest to various food sources. The study focused mainly on how Argentine ants behave and coordinate themselves in both symmetrical and asymmetrical pathways. In nature, ants do this by leaving chemical pheromone trails.

a swarm of sugar cube size robots, called "Alices", leaving light trails that they can detect with two light sensors mimicking the role of the ants' antennae. In the beginning of the experiment, where branches of the maze had no light trail, the robots adopted an "exploratory behaviour" modelled on the regular insect movement pattern of moving randomly but in the same general direction. This led the robots to choose the path that deviated least from their trajectory at each bifurcation of the network. If the robots detected a light trail, they would turn to follow that path. One outcome of the robotic model was the discovery that the robots did not need to be programmed to identify and compute the geometry of the network bifurcations.

(AP Photo/Brian Slodysko) GARDEN CITY, Ind. (AP) — Vice President Mike Pence turns nostalgic when he talks about growing up in small-town Columbus, Indiana, where his father helped build a Midwestern empire of more than 200 gas stations that provided an upbringing on the “front row of the American dream.” The collapse of Kiel Bros.

the three states, including underground tanks that leaked toxic chemicals into soil, streams and wells. ADVERTISEMENT Indiana alone has spent at least $21 million on the cleanup thus far, or an average of about $500,000 per site, according to an analysis of records by The Associated Press. And the work is nowhere near complete. The federal government, meanwhile, plans to clean up a plume of cancer-causing solvent discovered beneath a former Kiel Bros. station that threatens drinking water near the Pence family’s hometown. To assess the pollution costs, the AP reviewed thousands of pages of court documents, tax statements, business filings and federal financial disclosures, as well as federal and state environmental records for Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois. The total financial impact isn’t clear because Indiana officials have yet to release costreliable spending data for the company. That was out of more than 230 companies seeking cleanup money that year, including major gas station chains with a substantially larger presence in the state. Founded as an oil distributor by businessman Carl Kiel in 1960, the company expanded into the gas station business. Pence’s father, Edward, joined in the early years and, by the mid-1970s, rose to corporate vice president. Mike Pence says he worked for the business — which mostly operated under the name Tobacco Road — starting at age 14. But it was his brother who took over after Edward Pence’s 1988 death and eventually became president. By the early 2000s, Kiel Bros. was swimming in debt as industry consolidation and low gas prices stretched profit margins to the brink. The

But some sites were abandoned, including a graffiti-covered storage tank facility that once towered over an Indianapolis neighborhood. Nearby residents cheered last December as a crew tore down the tank, which was sold by the company for $10 in 2005 and has been an eyesore ever since. The cleanup will cost an estimated $260,000 , according to the city. Elsewhere in the city, business continues as usual at a gas station that has been in continuous state of cleanup since 1990. Pictures taken in 1992 show standing pools of black sludge where two underground storage tanks were removed.

It had previously only nominated novels by authors from Commonwealth countries and the Republic of Ireland. The rule change expanded nominations to include any English-language novel published in the UK. This includes Americans, and therein lies the problem. In the four awards since the rule change, two Americans have won (George Saunders in 2017 for Lincoln in the Bardo, and Paul Beatty in 2016 for The Sellout). Richard Flanagan, an Australian, and Marlon James, a Jamaican, won the other two years. Out of fear that the UK’s top prize for books is becoming too global, thirty UK publishers have signed a letter, The Guardian reports, which has leaked, addressed to the organization. In it, publishers say: The

does seem appropriate for the UK to have a prestigious UK-centric award, in the same way America has the National Book Award. The Man Booker Prize was once an opportunity to see the best literature published in a certain region. Its message now is more broad, and, personally, not totally on board with it. Even though Lincoln in the Bardo was one of my favorite books of last year, George Saunders is doing okay in terms of being critically lauded—not sure he needed the 2017 Man Booker Prize. But what do you think? A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate.

Dialogue and interior monologue. It’s something like a literary mosaic–a singular story told by a kind of torrent of voices. Chair of the 2017 judging panel, Baroness Lola Young, said of the novel: This really stood out because of its innovation – its very different styling and the way in which it paradoxically brought to life these not-quite-dead souls in this other world. There was this juxtaposition of the very personal tragedy of Abraham Lincoln with his public life, as the person who’d really instigated the American Civil War. Apparently, it took five hours of discussion anddebate before the judges came to their unanimous decision. Along with Young, the judges included novelist Sarah Hall, artist Tom Phillips, literary critic Lila Azam Zanganeh, travel writer Colin Thubron. Since the award began in 1969, it had been only awarded to Commonwealth, Irish, or South African writers until 2014, when it was opened to all novels written in English.

File photo shows a First Folio edition of William Shakespeares' plays, dating from 1623 and considered to be one of the most important books in English literature, pictured at Sotheby's auction house in London on March 30, 2006. A copy of William Shakespeare's First Folio, the first-ever compilation of the Bard's plays published in 1623, has been discovered in the library of a small town in northern France, a librarian said Tuesday. One of the most valuable and coveted books in the world, the First Folio was uncovered when librarian Remy Cordonnier dusted off a book of Shakespeare's works dating to the 18th century for an exhibition on English literature in the town of Saint-Omer near Calais. "It occurred to me that it could be an unidentified First Folio, with historicimportance and great intellectual value," he told AFP. The copy of the book, which was published seven years after Shakespeare's death, was authenticated on Saturday by First Folio expert Eric Rasmussen from the University of Nevada. "It is the 231st copy found in the world and the second in France," said Cordonnier. The book, a compilation of 36 of Shakespeare's plays, is in good condition but missing about 30 pages, including the title page, which could explain how it went unnoticed for centuries. Rasmussen wrote a book on the First Folio called "The Shakespeare Thefts" detailing his thrilling global hunt for what remains of the initial 750 copies of the book, a favourite for thieves across the centuries. He describes "run-ins with heavily tattooed criminal street gangs in Tokyo, bizarre visits with eccentric,
{ "pile_set_name": [ "OpenWebText2", "OpenWebText2" ] }
reclusive billionaires, and intense battles of wills with secretive librarians," according to the publisher. Rasmussen's book speaks of several First Folios which have had pages ripped out of them, and one with a bullet lodged in it. The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, which houses the largest collection of Shakespeare material, says on its website that the First Folio is the only source for 18 of Shakespeare's plays, including Macbeth, "which would otherwise be lost." It is believed that the copy found in France was taken to Saint-Omer by English refugees from Anglican persecution, said Cordonnier. Library director Francoise Ducroquet said that while First Folio copies were valued between 2.5 and five million euros, the damaged version found in his library would probably be worth less.

After NXT TakeOver: Phoenix finished up (full results here), Triple H took part in a media call to talk about Velveteen Dream, who appeared in a few segments, but didn't wrestle on tonight's show. He also discussed wanting to progress younger stars at a slower pace, and how some fans are expecting too much, too soon from NXT Superstars. In regards to Dream's absence, Triple H simply put that there's not enough room to put everyone in every card, but at the same time, it's a good thing to mix it up with the talent they have. "The dude is a star, but you can only fit so many people into a card," Triple H said.

The result was that her stern swung to port, collided with and damaged the fish tug Babe moored at a city dock. The owner of the tug filed a libel *71 against the steamer and its owners impleaded the City of Cleveland. The latter requested a jury which found the City to have been at fault, the steamer without fault, and assessed damages. The court accepted the verdict, entered judgment in favor of the libelant against the impleaded respondent, and overruled a motion for new trial and to set aside the judgment. The City appeals, and its main contention is that the Fleetwood was likewise at fault so that the damages should have been divided. The collision

occurred at 6:50 p.m. on May 13, 1936, while the Fleetwood, a bulk freight steamer 247 feet long, was down-bound in the Cuyahoga River, loaded with 1900 gross tons of steel. When she was about two-thirds of a mile above the bridge the steamer blew one blast of her whistle, and when a thousand feet from the bridge, the bridge signal of a long blast, two short, and another long, as required by Bulletin 45 of the War Department, issued April 19, 1936, for the opening of drawbridges on the Cuyahoga River. The steamer was then proceeding at about 2 miles an hour with engines at slow speed. When about 800 feet from the bridge the engines were stopped and another bridge signal given, but the draw failedto open. When the steamer had drifted to within 300 feet of the bridge, the bridge captain signalled by waving his hands and calling out that the draw would not open. The steamer's engines were then reversed, but too late to avoid slight contact with the bridge and collision with the tug. The Center Street Bridge is located under the Superior Street High Level Bridge, and is a highway for both pedestrians and automobiles. It is of the horizontal swing type. The center of the swing span, being mounted on an abutment, divides the river into two draws. Of these, only the east draw is navigable with a clear width for the passage of vessels of about 110 feet. In the middle of the swing span, above its traffic
{ "pile_set_name": [ "FreeLaw", "FreeLaw" ] }
lanes, is a bridge cabin in which is located the machinery for controlling the draw, and at each end of the span are traffic gates capable of being swung across the roadway on the land approach to the bridge. The east traffic gates are operated by the bridge captain and the west gates by the bridge operator through control from the bridge cabin. The two employees constitute the bridge crew. The bridge is equipped with a red ball, 18 inches in diameter, which may be run up and lowered from the bridge operator's cabin, and a city ordinance requires that vessels may not attempt to pass a drawbridge unless the red ball is up. The bridge was also equipped with an air whistle to warn approaching vessels if, forany reason, the bridge would not be opened in time for safe passage. This whistle was not blown. It is conceded that the bridge operator, though hearing the preliminary whistle, had left his station in the bridge cabin, from which the mechanism for opening and closing the draw is operated, and did not return to his post until after the accident. The bridge captain knew that the operator was not at his post, but there was no arrangement for him to give the warning signal. He testified: "I did not know how to blow the whistle and no one ever showed me." When the steamer was about 800 feet above the bridge, its captain heard the traffic bell which signaled the stoppage of pedestrian and automobile traffic on

law would be obeyed and that the draw would open unless the customary warning signal was given. It is true the red ball was not up, but if it were it would have conveyed no information to the master of the Fleetwood beyond that furnished by the closed draw, Chicago v. Transportation Co., supra. On the other hand, the sounding of the traffic bells and the closing of the traffic gates upon the bridge, expressed to his mind the intention of the bridge crew to open the draw. They constituted an invitation to proceed. In relying upon them he was guilty of no fault. It is as though a flagman at a railroad crossing should waive the highway traffic through, notwithstanding a warning red light. Whether, after being madeWant to know more about Twine?

I've been DMing an AD&D 2e game this weekend. One of the characters was a poisoner/alchemist: I've created a quick modification of the mage class for him. Part of the class was the concept of components. The poisoner had a long list of recipes for potions and poisons, each requiring multiple components from a common component list. The list contained component types such things as (hot and cold), (pain and joy), and such. The recipes also had a quality rating required for each component. Now there was a spell he could use to extract a component from interesting things: corpses of monsters, special plants and such. The component type and quality was decided by a dice roll, lower quality being a lot more frequent than higher quality. However, afterAnna Atkins Widely known as the first female photographer, Anna Atkins was born in Kent in 1799. She was a botanist, and like Fox Talbot, quickly saw the opportunities that photography gave to accurately document plants and nature. Family friendships with both Fox Talbot and John Herschel meant she could learn directly from the process inventors. Atkins chose to use the new ‘cyanotype’ process invented by Herschel, impressed by the process’ ease of use, quality and stability. Her aim was, like Fox Talbot, to record the natural forms she studied, however her composition was generally more intentional and artistic than her forerunners. While previous pioneers had invented techniques, Atkins investigated the way the cyanotype could be used to show her plants, and as such, each image is far more considered as

to how it will look, both aesthetically and scientifically. While her cyanotypes do not have any abstraction of objects, in many images the line of plants stems and leaves lead up or out of the image. The processes allowed for good contrasts, with dense backgrounds and clear sharp white areas. In some images, distance from the paper give a wider tonal range to appear, with lighter shades of blue for parts of the plant away from the surface. Atkins moved on the process of photography, inviting more formal elements into her images with strong shape, form and an effective line. – paper soaked with ammonium iron (III) citrate and potassium.

The new discovery, described in detail in Journal of Systematic Palaeontology, was made in the Hukawng Valley of Kachin Province in Myanmar. The fossil was found in a piece of mid-Cretaceous Burmese amber. The full scientific name for the new species, belonging to a group more commonly known as shadowdamsels, is Mesosticta davidattenboroughi. Researchers decided to name the new species after David Attenborough because of his long-standing appreciation of dragonflies, and to celebrate his recent 90th birthday. Co-author Professor Edmund A. Jarzembowski said, "Dragonflies in amber are extremely rare and the recent discoveries by my Chinese colleagues are a new window on the past. It is tradition in
{ "pile_set_name": [ "Pile-CC", "OpenWebText2" ] }
taxonomy (the naming of a new species) to contact the person concerned. Sir David was delighted because he is not only interested in the story of amber, but also a president of the British Dragonfly Society." The fossil itself is extremely well preserved as it is encased in yellow transparent amber and includes a complete set of wings. With the aid of photo technology, researchers were able to digitally enhance and build a clear three-dimensional picture of the new species, showing that it differed from previously described fossils, notably in the shorter wing length. Lead author Daran Zheng from the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, commented, "Mesosticta davidattenboroughi is quite unique because we have uncovered a new species and it confirms the previous attribution ofMesosticta to the Platystictidae. It is the first fossil group of modern platystictid damselflies and documents the appearance of Platystictidae as early as mid-Cretaceous." The discovery of insect remains in amber is not uncommon, however this particular family of damselflies are much less frequently found and their fossil record is poor compared to many other families making the discovery especially unusual. Mesosticta davidattenboroughi joins a long list of animals which have been named after Sir David Attenborough, including a weevil and fossil species of a plesiosaur and a fish. ### This research was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Youth Innovation Promotion Association of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the HKU Seed Funding Program for Basic Research.

Turkish military to enlist 30,000 new personnel after purge Amid criticism that the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) is pushing the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) away from NATO, Defense Minister Fikri Işık has said 30,000 new people will be enlisted in the TSK, the Star daily reported. “This week 174 Air Forces Academy students started their education. We are continuing to conduct interviews. A total of 30,000 new people will be part of the TSK,” said Işık during a party meeting in Kocaeli on Saturday. Although the Turkish military stated on July 27 that 8,651 military members including cadets and conscripts took part in a July 15 coup attempt, Minister Işık told the state-run Anadolu news agency on Dec. 11 that the government had dismissed a total of 22,085 militarypersonnel including high-ranking generals over alleged links with the Gülen movement. Regulations that task retired officers and noncommissioned officers with recruiting cadets and military personnel went into effect last month amid debates that it was a gift to SADAT A.S. International Defense Consulting, which has also been called President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s “secret army.” According to new regulations based on state of emergency decree No: 678 issued on Nov. 22, 2016 by the AKP government, retired officers and noncommissioned officers are to be given the responsibilities of recruitment until Dec. 31, 2020. “SADAT, which consists of retired military personnel who were called the AK militia and which was said to be responsible for civilian killings on July 15, now will officially be responsible for profiling and recruiting members. Moreover, they will
{ "pile_set_name": [ "Pile-CC", "Pile-CC" ] }
be paid for these activities,” said an article published by the Aktif Haber news website on Saturday. SADAT was directed by retired Brig. Gen. Adnan Tanrıverdi, who was recently appointed as an adviser to President Erdoğan. According to columnist Abdullah Bozkurt, who calls SADAT Erdoğan’s private army, the man who Bozkurt says is still in charge, Tanrıverdi, is the point man who will reshape NATO’s largest army after the US by steering recruitment policy until 2020. Tanrıverdi is known for his Islamist ideology and has counseled Erdoğan for years although in an unofficial capacity, Bozkurt wrote for Turkish Minute on Nov. 25. Meanwhile, 28 military officers were detained on Monday as part of ongoing operations targeting the followers of the faith-based Gülen movement due to their use of a smart phone applicationknown as ByLock. The operations, which were based in the western province of Balıkesir, were conducted across 12 provinces. Turkish authorities believe ByLock is a communication tool between members of the Gülen movement. A report prepared by the EU Intelligence Analysis Centre (IntCen) revealed that although President Erdoğan and the Turkish government immediately put the blame for the July 15 failed coup on the faith-based Gülen movement, the coup attempt was staged by a range of Erdoğan’s opponents due to fears of an impending purge, according to a report by The Times newspaper on Jan. 17. The website reported on Jan. 25 that NATO sources believe the coup was staged by the president of Turkey himself. Speaking to, a former Turkish officer who served at NATO headquarters in Brussels

Paddling together over the last few years, the women amassed many a zany tale and heaps of video, most of which finds its way onto their "Northwest Livin'" blog. Glissmeyer and Wagner condensed the best clips into a four-minute film, which opens with the three leading ladies, clad in heels and cocktail dresses, carrying creekboats followed by footage of local drops, bootie beers, mud wrestlingand tandem mechanical bull riding. After the movie won first place at Portland's PDX Kayaker Film Festival in October, the girls started posting 45-second teasers, dubbed Femme45, about their escapades on their blog and Facebook pages. Lunch Video Magazine's John Grace liked the clips, and commissioned them for a regular segment on the quarterly DVD. LVM #33, which premiered in March, features cold-weather adventures like roller derby, winter runs around the Pacific Northwest, and Wagner destroying the competition in a halftime tricycle race at a Portland Trailblazers game. "It's fun having girlfriends with the same interests as you," says the Dagger-sponsored Glissmeyer, 31. "When you're sitting at the bar and talking about kayaking, they're not just rolling their eyes like, 'Here she goes again.'" And when they're not styling local

Coyote sightings in North Texas are not all that unusual, but attacks are rare. Zane Weddell, 15, said he was walking out of a movie at the Cinemark Tinsletown Sunday night in Grapevine when he was bitten by a coyote. "I was like shocked there was a coyote," he said. Zane said he and his girlfriend walked around the back of the theater, and the coyote came around the bushes. “It came at me, came at us, so I grabbed my shoe and I threw it at it, hit it, and it came back, came at me, so I like kicked it with my foot. And it got hold of my foot and shook me around a little bit, and it like let go and took off,” he explained. His mother was waitingfor him at the front of the theater, so he ran to her car, where she saw blood on his foot. They then went to the emergency room, where Zane had five shots. He is now being treated with multiple rounds of antibiotics. “It was really scary. He was OK physically. I was really more afraid of infection or if the coyote was rabid, because of the way he was acting. I’m still kind of scared because he still has three more rounds of shots to go,” said mother Kendra Weddell. Grapevine police confirm that animal control was notified. Their crews have been looking, but so far, have not seen the coyote. Police also say have only had one call about a coyote. We have called a representative from Cinemark, and they have

Pike Creek shooting suspect killed self The suspect in a Pike Creek shooting the night of Super Bowl Sunday drove to his home near Coatesville, Pennsylvania, and killed himself after police arrived to interrogate him, The News Journal has learned. New Castle County police said Tuesday that ballistics tests on the gun found with the dead man in Pennsylvania matched the weapon used to wound a 39-year-old man in Delaware about 10 p.m. on Feb. 1. County police identified the dead suspect as Michael Keeshan, 50, of the 100 block of Durham Drive in Coatesville, about 25 miles from the shooting scene. The victim, who worked with the suspect's wife, was shot in the torso through the front door in the 5000 block of East Brigantine Court. He was not seriously injuredlives near New York City, said Pennsylvania police told him in February that authorities in Delaware had alerted them late on Feb. 1 that Michael was a suspect in the Pike Creek shooting. Richard Keeshan said police told him they went to Michael Keeshan's house and he answered the door, then went to another room and shot himself to death. Richard Keeshan said police speculated his brother took his life "because he thought he was being arrested for murder." Michael Keeshan, who comes from a family of law enforcement officers, was a 50-year-old father of seven and a successful retail manager. Since speaking with police in early February, Keeshan said he has been unable to get more answers from his brother's widow or police. Keeshan's widow could not be reached Tuesday. "We

operation, and have not been paid for their efforts. The United States denies responsibility, and invokes the state secrets privilege to avoid responding to plaintiffs' demands for discovery. The United States Court of Federal Claims concluded that, even if the individual alleged to be a secret agent was in fact such an agent, there was an insufficient showing that the agent had authority to contract on behalf of the United States. The court granted summary judgment for the United States. Monarch Assurance P.L.C. v. United States, 42 Fed. Cl. 258 (1998). 2 On appeal, plaintiffs argue that the trial court improperly applied the state secrets privilege, abused its discretion in curtailing discovery, and erred by granting summary judgment for theUnited States because sufficient evidence had been submitted to support a prima facie finding of actual authority to contract. I. Background 3 The facts of the case, or at least the allegations made by plaintiffs, the responses by the United States (hereafter "Government") thereto, and the trial court's findings, read rather more like a plot for a made-for-TV movie than a typical contract dispute heard in the federal courts. Nevertheless, this is the story the record reveals. 4 Plaintiffs are Thomas Patrick Denton Taylor, a resident of the Isle of Man and the Chief Executive and Managing Director of Monarch Assurance P.L.C., an organization headquartered on the Isle of Man and operating under the laws of England (collectively "Monarch"). In the fall of 1989,
{ "pile_set_name": [ "FreeLaw", "FreeLaw" ] }
plaintiffs were approached by a British solicitor, Charles J. Deacon, who presented a business proposition on behalf of one John Patrick Savage. Mr. Savage was supposedly a high level agent of the United States' Central Intelligence Agency (hereafter "CIA" or "Agency"), operating in Europe. The CIA needed money to support certain covert projects being undertaken in Europe, code named "Ultima" and "Bluebook," but for undisclosed reasons could not use its own funds directly. Mr. Savage wished to borrow money in order to fund his activities on behalf of the United States Government. 5 Following subsequent negotiations, Monarch in October 1989 paid to Savage and Deacon $5 million, and in April 1990 a further $3 million. On April 26, 1990, insubmitted affidavits from Government officials in support of its motion. 8 In due course, the trial court denied both the Government's motion to dismiss and a subsequent renewal of the motion for summary judgment. The latter was accompanied by two affidavits from then CIA Director John M. Deutch. The first, for the public record, explained why to promote national security the CIA had a firm policy of not disclosing any information that would tend to either confirm or deny the existence or nonexistence of any relationships or contacts between individuals and the CIA. The affidavit invoked the common-law state secrets privilege, as well as certain statutory privileges. The second affidavit from Director Deutch, submitted in camera for the exclusive use
{ "pile_set_name": [ "FreeLaw", "FreeLaw" ] }
Savage wrote to him. These letters were written on what appeared to be CIA letterhead. In a letter written to Deacon on January 26, 1990, Savage signed the letter with the title, "Assistant Deputy Director, European Operations." In a second letter written February 7, 1990, Savage indicated his affiliation with the CIA was with "Global Affairs." Neither letter contained any description of Savage's job responsibilities with the CIA, nor shed any light as to exactly what he did for the CIA. 16 Monarch also submitted other declarations from persons who apparently believed that Savage was with the CIA because of comments he made, or in one instance because of his conduct in never allowing the individual to see the contentskey question in the case, even assuming the alleged agent Savage was an employee of the CIA, is did he have actual authority to contract in the manner he did on behalf of the United States Government. The United States Government employs close to three million civilian employees.1 If all Government employees could, of their own volition, enter into contracts obligating the Government, then federal expenditures would be wholly uncontrollable. City of El Centro v. United States, 922 F.2d 816, 820 (Fed. Cir. 1990). Thus, to avoid such a situation, the law requires that a Government agent who purports to enter into or ratify a contractual agreement that is to bind the United States have actual authority to

as a conduit between Savage and certain investors, such as plaintiffs, who were owed money as a result of the dealings of Savage. He stated that an intermediary, one Lee Morris, represented that Savage was "acting on behalf of the [CIA]." 42 Fed. Cl. at 261. The declaration of Edgar Reynolds, a friend of Savage, was also in the file. Reynolds stated that he had the distinct impression that Savage was an important person within the CIA. 26 The court also reviewed excerpts from interviews conducted by law enforcement officials in Britain with Savage. Because Mr. Savage died a few days after Monarch filed its case in the Court of Federal Claims, Monarch never did have the opportunity to depose him.During interviews conducted by Detective William Hulse of the Staffordshire Police Department in the United Kingdom before Savage's death, and attended by a representative of the Internal Revenue Service, Savage stated, "I have never been an employee of the . . . [CIA]." When he was asked, "But you never worked for the CIA, did you?", he answered "No, no." Savage also stated that he had "no warrant of authority" for the Agency. 27 The court then reviewed the further evidence proffered by Monarch, obtained following the 1996 decision. This consisted primarily of the statements of three persons, Boris Z. Sielicki-Korczak, Lee Morris, and Raphael Moore. 28 Mr. Korczak attested that he was an "access agent" for the CIA gathering raw intelligence on
