Bluebird jet boat floats again 51 years after fatal crash

first_imgLONDON – The famed jet boat Bluebird returned to the water Saturday for the first time since a 1967 crash that killed pilot Donald Campbell during a world speed-record attempt.Watched by well-wishers including Campbell’s daughter Gina Campbell, the sleek blue hydroplane was lowered into Loch Fad on Scotland’s Isle of Bute, where it will undergo low-speed tests.Campbell had already set eight land and water speed records when he attempted to break his own 276.3 mph (445 kph) water-speed record on Jan. 4, 1967 on Coniston Water in northwest England’s Lake District.The jet-powered Bluebird roared past 300 mph (482 kph) before it vaulted into the air, flipped and crashed into the lake, breaking in two and killing the 45-year-old Campbell.It was 34 years before divers managed to raise the Bluebird’s wreckage from the bottom of 150-foot (45-meter) deep lake in March 2001.Human remains were found near the boat and confirmed by DNA testing as belonging to Campbell. In September 2001, his body was taken on a final boat trip around the lake where he died before being buried in a nearby churchyard.A team has been working for 17 years to restore the vessel and hopes to return it to the Lake District next year.The plans to rebuild the Bluebird faced some opposition, but gained support from Gina Campbell, who was 17 when her father died. On Saturday, she held her father’s mascot — a stuffed bear named Mr. Whoppit that was recovered from Coniston Water after the crash.She said she was “overwhelmed” by the occasion.“I hope my dad’s looking down from above and telling everybody what a good job was done,” she told the BBC.last_img read more

New head of UN antiterrorism office outlines comprehensive battle plan

Addressing the Council at the outset of a daylong discussion involving all 15 members and representatives of some 20 other countries, Javier Ruperez, Executive Director of the Counter-Terrorism Secretariat, said his office would help countries that are struggling to meet international requirements in the fight against terror. “It is only in this way that we can begin to close the gap and make more difficult, day by day, the deadly and destructive work of the terrorists.”Mr. Ruperez, who was began in the job in June, said he has initiated contact with key agencies whose work relates to the fight against terror, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Organization of American States (OAS), Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), African Union (AU), European Union (EU), International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).”We need to build cooperation not only among Member States but also international, regional and subregional organizations,” he said. “And for those reasons, the Executive Directorate will double efforts to encourage Member States to comply fully with the obligations which they have before them so that they will be armed with the legal and administrative tools to confront the threat of terrorism with full attachment to international law.”He noted that the world is counting on the UN’s leadership in the global campaign against terrorism. “I shall put forth all my efforts to ensure that the Executive Directorate responds fully to the wishes of the international community in this regard,” he said.In a presidential statement adopted at the end of the meeting, the Council stressed the UN’s role in the global fight against terrorism, and reaffirmed the efforts of its Counter-terrorism Committee (CTC) to help countries battle the scourge.The statement, read out by Council President Ambassador Adam Thomson of the United Kingdom, noted the importance of continuing the CTC’s efforts to enhance the ability of Member States to fight terrorism, including identifying and addressing the problems countries face in carrying out their obligations under resolution 1373.The Committee was set up to monitor and help in the implementation of that landmark text, which was adopted in the wake of the 11 September 2001 attacks against the United States. It contains wide-ranging obligations on the part of countries to prevent, fight and prosecute terrorist acts, as well as make periodic reports.The Council’s statement today also invited the CTC to continue working on putting into place plans to revitalize its work, including the new Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate, as well as its next three month work plan.”These measures will embrace further work to increase the Committee’s capacity, including through enhanced cooperation with the Al-Qaida/Taliban Sanctions Committee,” the statement said, referring to another Council body overseeing compliance with punitive measures against those two groups.At the outset of its session, the Council heard a briefing by the CTC Chairman, Ambassador Andrey I. Denisov of the Russian Federation, who said that over the past three months, the Executive Directorate had been consolidated, and that the Committee had been able to speed up the process of reviewing reports by Member States.”I would like to emphasize that the fight against terrorism needs to be sustained effectively and with dynamism. It requires a consolidated and wide-ranging multinational response,” he said.”By strengthening its structural and working capacity the CTC is determined to continue playing a proactive role and to provide guidance to international cooperation in preventing and combating terrorism, one of the strongest threats to peace and security.” Video:• Morning session – [2hrs 44mins]• Afternoon session – [2hrs 02mins] read more

Struggling steel industry sparks crisis in UK

by Jill Lawless, The Associated Press Posted Mar 31, 2016 2:41 am MDT Last Updated Apr 2, 2016 at 5:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Struggling steel industry sparks crisis in UK LONDON – The British government scrambled Thursday to save the country’s struggling steel industry after Tata Steel announced plans to sell its U.K. plants, which employ almost 20,000 people.Prime Minister David Cameron held a crisis meeting at 10 Downing St., and said the government would do “everything it can” to keep steelmaking in Britain.But, he said, “this is a difficult situation. There’s no guarantee of success.”“This industry is in difficulty right across the world,” Cameron said. “There’s been a collapse in prices, there’s massive overcapacity.”The steel industry in Britain, like many developed economies, has been hit hard by cheap Chinese imports, which have depressed prices, and manufacturers have asked the government and European Union to impose anti-dumping duties.Tata Steel, which operates the country’s biggest steel plant at Port Talbot in south Wales, is losing 1 million pounds ($1.4 million) a day in Britain, the U.K. government has said. A sale or restructuring would likely involve heavy job losses in places like Port Talbot, a battered but proud steel town where Tata employs 5,500 people.Tuesday’s decision by the Indian company to shed its British steelworks appeared to catch U.K. authorities by surprise. Cameron was on vacation in the Canary Islands, while Business Secretary Sajid Javid was in Australia.Javid, who quickly flew back to Britain, said the steel industry “is absolutely vital for the country and we will look at all viable options” to save it.The opposition Labour Party has urged the government to nationalize the steel industry — as it did struggling banks, which received billions in public money to keep them afloat during the 2008 financial crisis.Labour’s economy spokesman, John McDonnell, said temporary nationalization would be “cost-effective in the long term.”“It isn’t just the cost of losing those jobs, as we’ve seen elsewhere. It’s the cost of devastation of whole communities. And remember, we will be paying out in unemployment benefits and other benefits to those people who lose their jobs,” he said.But Cameron said: “I don’t believe nationalization is the right answer.” He suggested the government could provide incentives to steelmakers, including a guarantee that British-made steel would be used in major defence and infrastructure projects.Critics say that may not be enough.Labour lawmaker Stephen Kinnock, who represents the Port Talbot area, accused the government of being in “disarray” over steel.He said the government “has been asleep at the wheel and has been more interested in rolling out the red carpet for China, than it has been in standing up for British steelworkers.”The crisis was seized on by both sides in the debate over Britain’s place in the European Union that is raging ahead of a June 23 referendum on membership. John Longworth of the Vote Leave campaign said Britain had “handed power over our trade policy to the EU,” which had failed to prevent the dumping of cheap steel from China.“If we vote leave and take back control we would actually have the power to combat unfair dumping of steel,” he said.But Cameron, who wants Britain to remain in the 28-nation bloc, said half of British steel is exported to EU countries, and leaving might mean it became subject to tariffs. The Tata steel plant dominates the skyline over the roof tops of Port Talbot, Wales, Wednesday March 30, 2016. UK authorities say they will look at all viable options to keep the British steel industry at the heart of its manufacturing base after Tata Steel announced it may sell its UK assets. The sale could put thousands of jobs at risk. (Andrew Matthews/PA via AP) UNITED KINGDOM OUT NO SALES NO ARCHIVE read more

Violence leads arrests in May Day marches in US Northwest

Violence leads arrests in May Day marches in US Northwest A group protests outside the White House in Lafayette Park to denounce President Donald Trump’s policies on immigration on May Day in Washington, Monday, May 1, 2017. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik) by Gillian Flaccus And Amy Taxin, The Associated Press Posted May 2, 2017 2:01 am MDT Last Updated May 2, 2017 at 10:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email PORTLAND, Ore. – May Day protests turned violent in the Pacific Northwest as demonstrators in Portland, Oregon, threw smoke bombs and Molotov cocktails at police while elsewhere thousands of people peacefully marched against President Donald Trump’s immigration and labour policies.From New England to the Midwest to the West Coast people chanted and picketed against Trump along with the traditional May Day labour rallies. Protesters flooded streets in Chicago. At the White House gates, they demanded “Donald Trump has got to go!”In Portland, Oregon, police shut down a protest they said had become a riot and arrested more than two dozen people. Police in Olympia, Washington, said nine people were taken into custody after several officers were injured by thrown rocks and windows were broken at businesses in Washington’s capital city.In Seattle, five people were arrested during downtown protests and in Oakland, California, at least four were arrested after creating a human chain to block a county building where demonstrators demanded that county law enforcement refuse to collaborate with federal immigration agents.“It is sad to see that now being an immigrant is equivalent to almost being a criminal,” said Mary Quezada, a 58-year-old North Carolina woman who joined those marching on Washington.She offered a pointed message to Trump: “Stop bullying immigrants.”The demonstrations on May Day, celebrated as International Workers’ Day, follow similar actions worldwide in which protesters from the Philippines to Paris demanded better working conditions. But the widespread protests in the United States were aimed directly at the new Republican president, who has followed aggressive anti-immigrant rhetoric on the campaign trail with aggressive action in the White House.Trump, in his first 100 days, has intensified immigration enforcement, including executive orders for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and a ban on travellers from six predominantly Muslim countries. The government has arrested thousands of immigrants in the country illegally and threatened to withhold funding from jurisdictions that limit co-operation between local and federal immigration authorities.In Chicago, 28-year-old Brenda Burciaga was among thousands of people who marched through the streets to push back against the new administration.“Everyone deserves dignity,” said Burciaga, whose mother is set to be deported after living in the U.S. for about 20 years. “I hope at least they listen. We are hardworking people.”In Shemanski Park in Portland, Oregon, before the violence broke out hundreds of people, including some families with children, gathered and watched dancers in bright feathered headdresses perform to the beat of drums.Friends Marian Drake and Martin Anderson watched from a nearby park bench as they held balloons supporting the International Workers Union.“Things are so screwed up in this country. You’ve got a city right here that’s full of homeless people and you’ve got a president …whose budget is going to cut 40 per cent to the EPA and end Meals on Wheels. We don’t like those kinds of things,” Anderson said.In cities large and small, the protests intensified throughout the day.Teachers working without contracts opened the day by picketing outside schools in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Activists in Phoenix petitioned state legislators to support immigrant families.In a Los Angeles park, several thousand people waved American flags and signs reading “love not hate.”Selvin Martinez, an immigrant from Honduras with an American flag draped around his shoulders, took the day off from his job waxing casino floors to protest. “We hope to get to be respected as people, because we are not animals, we are human beings,” said Martinez, who moved to Los Angeles 14 years ago fleeing violence in his country.The White House did not respond to requests for a response to the May Day demonstrations.Several protesters, like 39-year-old Mario Quintero, outed themselves as being in the country illegally to help make their point.“I’m an undocumented immigrant, so I suffer in my own experience with my family,” said Quintero at a Lansing, Michigan, rally. “That’s why I am here, to support not only myself but my entire community.”In Miami, Alberto and Maribel Resendiz closed their juice bar, losing an estimated revenue of $3,000, to join a rally.“This is the day where people can see how much we contribute,” said Alberto Resendiz, who previously worked as a migrant worker in fields as far away as Michigan. “This country will crumble down without us.”He added, “We deserve a better treatment.”In Oakland at a later march, more than 1,000 people marched peacefully representing labour groups along with Mexican, Vietnamese, Chinese, Filipino and other immigrants.While union members traditionally march on May 1 for workers’ rights around the world, the day has become a rallying point for immigrants in the U.S. since massive demonstrations were held on the date in 2006 against a proposed immigration enforcement bill.In recent years, immigrant rights protests shrank as groups diverged and shifted their focus on voter registration and lobbying.___Taxin reported from Los Angeles.

UNICEF welcomes release of 70 Kurdish children after 120 days in captivity

“The physical and psychological well-being of these children is currently being assessed. We remain deeply concerned about the safety of children and teachers who are still in captivity,” said Hanaa Singer, UNICEF’s representative in Syria in a statement today. The children were kidnapped on 29 May and held in captivity for 120 days. Ms. Singer reiterated that the abduction, recruitment and use of children in hostilities are grave child rights violations.“In this time of conflict, it is the obligation of all parties to ensure that Syrian children be kept out of harm’s way and granted unhindered and safe access to education,” she added. Meanwhile, a UN spokesperson briefing reporters at Headquarters today noted that since the adoption of Security Council resolution 2165 in July, the world body and its partners have sent 20 convoys of humanitarian aid through the border crossings with Turkey and Jordan at Bab al-Hawa, Bab al-Salam and Al Ramtha.These convoys have brought in food for 160,000 people, basic household items for almost 210,000 people, health and medical supplies for almost 470,000 people and supplies for clean water and sanitation for almost 67,000 people.He said UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos has welcomed the positive development that the humanitarian community can use these border crossings to reach communities in desperate need. But she added that the question is how consistently aid agencies can reach people, while security and funding remains limited. read more

Britons duped by new passport renewal policy

Show more The change comes just six months after the cost of a postal passport application rose from £72.50 to £85 – a 17 per cent increase and well above the rate of inflation. For under 16s the cost is £58.50 (up from £46 before March, a 27 per cent increase). Online applications cost £75 and £49 for adults and children, respectively. A Home Office statement said the change was made to bring the UK in line with other countries. “Previously, the UK was the only country to exceed the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s guidelines for a maximum passport validity of ten years for adults, and five years for children,” it said. “The price paid for a UK passport has never reflected the validity of that passport, rather it is based on the cost of processing the application.” An Israeli stamp in your passport has long been known to cause problems visiting a number of Muslim countries, such as Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Kuwait, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen. Israeli authorities, however, typically do not stamp passports but instead give travellers arriving by air a stamped entry and exit card.Britons can visit most countries without applying for a visa, but not China, Iran, Cuba, Mongolia and Nigeria (among others). Always check the Foreign Office website as soon as you book your trip. The Government has been accused of short-changing millions of British travellers with an unannounced change to its passport renewal policy.Until this month a Briton renewing their passport would have had any time left over on their old document, up to a maximum of nine months, added to their new one. Someone whose passport expires on March 1, 2019, for example, would have been able to renew today and still be handed a fresh document valid until March 1, 2029. Now, however, a new passport issued to them today will only be valid until September 13, 2028.The change may encourage travellers to renew at the last minute to get full value from their £85 fee. But that’s a risky strategy as many countries, including Sri Lanka, Thailand, China, Russia, Indonesia and the UAE, only accept passports with at least six months left to run. It means for many Britons the life of their passport has been cut from 10 to less than nine and a half years, equating to a five per cent increase in price. The change, implemented on September 10 but not announced by the Home Office, was revealed yesterday by Money Saving Expert. It was contacted by shocked readers who had renewed their passports in the last couple of days but lost the time they had remaining.“To have done this without giving anyone any notice isn’t right and isn’t fair,” said Martin Lewis, the company’s founder.“It’s really not the way that governments should be operating on something as important as your passport. People are going to feel somewhat duped by this.” More passport problems to watch out forDozens of countries around the world require arriving travellers to have at least six months left to run on their passports. They include Brazil, Turkey, China, Russia, St Lucia and Thailand (see table above for more). Many more, such as Belarus, may refuse entry unless you have at least three months of validity beyond your arrival date. For others, like New Zealand and South Africa, one month is necessary. Always check the Foreign Office’s country-by-country advice as soon as you book. Every country, even those in the EU, require your passport to be valid for the duration of your trip. Some countries may also turn travellers away if they do not have any blank pages in their passport. The Foreign Office advises travellers without at least two blank pages to renew their document.  Other entry requirements that may catch you outSouth Africa requests that parents travelling with a child under the age of 18 produce at the check-in desk the child’s full unabridged birth certificate showing the names of both parents. Lone adults flying with their offspring must also show they have the consent of their non-travelling partner in the form of a signed affidavit. The rules were introduced in 2015 to combat child trafficking.A parent travelling to any country who has a different surname to their child should expect to be questioned by border staff to establish their relationship to the youngster. Travellers to the US must apply for an “ESTA” (Electronic System for Travel Authorization), at a cost of $4, which gives you permission to visit. You cannot board a flight without it. See the official website at esta.cbp.dhs.gov. Do not use any unofficial sites which claim to do the work for you. The US also requires anyone who has visited Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen since March 2011 to apply for a full tourist visa. It currently costs $160 and requires applicants to complete an online form and attend an interview at the US Embassy in London. read more

Frimpong on Nasri Hes an idiot

first_imgEmmanuel Frimpong has lambasted his former Arsenal teammate Samir Nasri in a recent interview with the TelegraphThe midfielder, who came through the ranks at youth level for Arsenal, spoke of an incident that had occurred in a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool. During the match Frimpong had been sent off with Nasri, who was on the verge of joining Manchester City at the time, being highly-critical of the Ghanaian. “When the game ended, we were in the dressing room and I expected Wenger to be really angry,” said Frimpong. “He was actually very calm, but for some reason Nasri came in and he was like: ‘We lost the game because of you’. “I was a young guy, didn’t really know what I was doing, and was devastated. I felt like I’d let everybody down and he was really blaming me, so I really didn’t like him. ““He always had a go at me if I gave the ball away in training and even said to me once: ‘I could buy you if I want’. To be honest, he probably could have done at the time, but still.” Frimpong later recalled another incident, later in the season, which had seen both men involved in a clash during a Carling Cup game at the Emirates. “People never really understand why that happened but I don’t like the guy,” he said. “The reason I don’t like him is because he’s an idiot. Plain and simple. I would never, ever have respect for him.”last_img read more
