Lebanon UN envoy says Israel must halt its air violations of withdrawal

In a statement released in Beirut, Staffan de Mistura “again calls upon the Israeli authorities to cease all air violations and to fully respect the Blue Line,” as the withdrawal line is known. Such actions, he said, “are unhelpful in avoiding the deterioration of an already tense situation.”Mr. de Mistura made his comments on a day when nine Israeli jets committed a total of six violations. Sonic booms were also heard in Beirut and southern Lebanon on Friday. The previous day, air violations were committed by two Israeli military aircraft.

Ohio State mens basketball announces Top 5 recruiting class for 2014

OSU coach Thad Matta lectures his players during a game against Ohio Nov. 12 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 79-69.Credit: Ritika Shah / Asst. photo editorOhio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta has officially finalized his 2014 recruiting class, and he’s happy with the group set to don the Scarlet and Gray next year.“(I’m) just very, very excited about this class,” Matta said Thursday. “I think the biggest thing with this particular class is we got what we wanted.”Matta announced Thursday the signing of four players, including two from Ohio, to complete yet another class that ranks in the Top 5 of the country.The four players Matta added to his crew for 2014 include guard D’Angelo Russell, forward Keita Bates-Diop, forward Jae’Sean Tate and center David Bell.Matta spoke about Tate, a Pickerington, Ohio native, first Thursday, calling him “a warrior,” and someone who can play multiple positions.“Everybody’s asking me, ‘What position is Jae’Sean?’ And I always answer the same, ‘I don’t know, but I know he’s going to be on the floor,’” Matta said. “He’s got a great first step. He can guard I think all five positions on the floor … You’re getting a great player and you’re getting a guy who is a Buckeye.”Matta called Russell  “another great guard at Ohio State,” even though it may be unclear whether he will play point guard or shooting guard.“Is he a point guard? Is he a two guard? I don’t know. I think we can run him at both,” Matta said. “He’s got the ability to make big time plays with the ball in his hands.”Russell is the complete package, Matta said, because he does all things well.“The first time I ever saw him play, he had six threes in the first half and the second half, he didn’t take a one but he probably had 10 assists,” Matta said. “He’s just got something about him.”Another player who Matta said “wants to be at Ohio State” is Bell, who is from Garfield Heights, Ohio.“I think we’ll bring his skill along, but he runs the floor, he blocks shots, he rebounds out of his area,” Matta said of Bell.Bates-Diop is another player that can do it all because of his athleticism, Matta said.“I think from the standpoint of playing multiple positions, he scores, he passes, he rebounds, he can defend, can handle the basketball,” Matta said of Bates-Diop.Matta said he and the rest of the coaching staff set out on the recruiting trail with mindset that they wanted to replace current senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. — which he said they did.“We feel unequivocally we did that with guys that can do a lot of different things,” Matta said. “I kind of like the position we’re in.”Matta and the Buckeyes are set to travel to Milwaukee for their first road game of the season Saturday, taking on Marquette at 1 p.m. read more

Heres what to watch out for in tonights Oscars

first_img Feb 24th 2019, 9:00 PM Short URL Sunday 24 Feb 2019, 9:00 PM Here’s what to watch out for in tonight’s Oscars Will Ireland get any Oscars? And will Bohemian Rhapsody annoy everyone by scooping big awards? 18,101 Views Image: Danny Moloshok Image: Danny Moloshok People, actual fucking people, are watching scene after scene like this and are saying “bruuuh! best. movie. of. the. year”?This is objectively bad. Someone with no idea about editing will notice it. My brain is on fire thinking that this is an OSCAR NOMINATED MOVIE! FUCK!— Pramit is in mourning after watching #Endgame (@pramitheus) January 26, 2019center_img 10 Comments Then we have Green Book (about the real-life pairing of African American musician Dr Don Shirley – played by Mahershal Ali – and his white driver Tony Lip – played by Viggo Mortensen – as they take a trip through the Deep South), which has also been mired in controversy.There were the facts that it appears to do some white-washing around race relations; that Viggo Mortensen using the N-word at a press event; that the director admitted flashing actresses; and that Don Shirley’s family were said to be not very happy about the film. That all said, doing well in the Irish box office, as this list from Scannáin shows. But have the controversies put off the Academy voters?The controversies around Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody are particularly interesting because they highlight the types of discussions that we’re having around popular culture in 2019 – digging deep into race, gender politics and who has the right to tell someone’s story.How they fare at the Oscars will give an insight into the mindset of the members of the Academy, who have certainly not been described as the most diverse group of people in Hollywood. How things pan out on the night will be very telling. How will the festival do without a main host?For the first time in 30 years, there will be no main host for the Oscars. Again, this is down to controversy – Kevin Hart had been lined up to do the honours, but when old homophobic tweets of his resurfaced, he stepped down.He had been given the choice to delete the tweets, or give up the role, and he chose the latter – though he did apologise to the LGBT community for what he said in the past. That left the Academy with a choice of whether to replace him or not. And, weirdly, they decided not to. Instead, the show will rely on a heap of big-name award presenters.But will they provide the entertainment the audience wants out of a long ceremony like the Oscars? We shall see… Will Richard E Grant get his Oscar? One of the sweetest things about this year’s Oscars has been witnessing veteran British actor Richard E Grant get his first Oscar nomination.With the enthusiasm of a starstruck teenager, he has been taking to Twitter to share his excitement. Come on – surely he deserves an award at this stage of his career.But if he doesn’t get it, at least we’ll get to see his lovely tweets from the ceremony. Unlike others, there’s no way he’ll be cynical about this.Will Roma win Best Film?This would be exciting because it’d be the first time a film in a foreign language has won the award. And with critics and audiences adoring this film, it’s certain it will get at least one Oscar. It could also land Cuarón an award for Best Director or for Best Cinematography.It would a big win for Netflix too, and perhaps a source of upset in Hollywood – as the streaming giant is certainly disrupting the way films are distributed and seen by audiences.Will there be any Moonlight/La La Land moments? We all hope that at each Oscars ceremony there’ll be an episode we’ll chat about after – like Gwyneth Paltrow’s tearful speech, Crash winning the Best Film Award, Ellen’s internet-killing selfie, or the moment the wrong film was named when Moonlight won Best Film.The awards show acceptance speech trend recently has been for rousing feminist/anti-racist speeches, which is certainly a good thing. So we can probably expect to see some of them (and maybe some digs at the all-male director shortlist).But we might see some controversial moments too. After all, it’s Hollywood, baby. Will Paul Schrader get his due? Or Spike Lee, for that matter? Or Glenn Close?Neither Schrader nor Lee have won Oscars for the films people wanted them to win Oscars for – Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Do The Right Thing, respectively – so could Schrader get the Best Original Screenplay award for First Reformed, and Lee win one of the many categories  Blackkklansman is nominated in? And as for Glenn Close – give the gal an Oscar already.Some bonus reading for you. A recap of the 1999 Oscars, when to everyone’s shock – except those involved in Harvey Weinstein’s campaign – Shakespeare in Love beat Saving Private Ryan to the Best Picture gong. And here’s a look at how much studios spend on Oscar campaigns – because if you’re not in, you sure as hell can’t win.The Oscars will kick off at 1am Irish time tomorrow morning. We’ll be keeping you updated as all the big news breaks. Source: Pramit Chatterjee 🌈/Twitter Share5 Tweet Email Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Aoife Barry IT’S TIME FOR the 2019 Oscars – and whether they agree with the outcome or not, it’s a highlight of any film-lover’s new year. The Academy Awards are the biggest mainstream film awards, with millions of dollars pumped into campaigns by studios in an attempt to get their movies to win. It’s a huge boost for any film to be nominated, never mind scoop a statuette – and excitingly for us, tonight sees Irish productions among the nominees. But it has been a strange year for the Oscars, with this year’s ceremony being the focus of some head-slapping controversy and ‘what now?!’ moments. And with some of the nominees for best film being heavily criticised, it’s going to be particularly interesting to see which productions do win the top categories.So with all that in mind, here’s what to watch out for:Will there be any Oscars for Ireland?There are a number of ways Ireland could get an Oscar this year. Our best bet is with the Irish co-produced film The Favourite, which is up for a whopping 10 awards (including the cinematography award, which Irish native Robbie Ryan is up for). Its director, Greek native Yorgos Lanthimos, has a great relationship with Irish production company Element, so we’ll all be crossing our fingers that they’ll take home a few golden statuettes. But that’s not all on the Irish front – animated short Late Afternoon and live action short Detainment also up for awards. Fingers crossed on all fronts.Will the A Star Is Born campaigning work? Source: Garrett Gagnon/YouTubeThe key to getting on the Academy’s radar and in with a chance of winning something is to, well, get talked about.But when it looked like there wasn’t enough chatter about A Star Is Born, and most particularly its star and director Bradley Cooper, something had to be done.So we had Cooper join Lady Gaga on stage at her Las Vegas residency gig, where the duo reunited to sing the hit Shallow from the film’s soundtrack. That would definitely remind people of the power of the film. And then there was Sean Penn’s op-ed about the need for Bradley to win. Which was embarrassing, but Penn, despite his behaviour, is Hollywood royalty. Then there’s the $20million that was apparently spent on the Oscars campaign for the film. So it can’t be said that they haven’t tried.To be fair to him, Bradley Cooper did at least admit he was put out that he didn’t get a nomination for Best Director (especially given the fine job the debut director did) – but he’s bound to leave home with at least one of the gongs for these for his film: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best Cinematography or Best Sound Mixing. It’s unlikely to get Best Picture, but we shall see… (to us, Lady Gaga’s performance was fantastic – but Olivia Colman is a shoe-in for Best Actress).How will Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book fare?There has been a LOT of drama about both of these films. For Bohemian Rhapsody (which is, in case you lived under a rock, a biopic about the band Queen) – that’s chiefly down to the fact director Bryan Singer was on board, before being replaced by Dexter Fletcher. Rumours had swirled about Singer’s behaviour for years, and an in-depth article in the Atlantic recently outlined the many allegations made against him.Then there’s the film itself. First, there were the accusations that it erased Freddie Mercury’s sexual identity (particularly in the trailer). And while Rami Malek got lots of praise for his own depiction of Mercury, when he won awards for the role there was some negative chatter.Then there is the direction and editing of the film, which has been made fun of online. At the same time, it has taken in about twice what A Star is Born took in at the box office globally – so audiences in the main did love it.last_img read more

TV stars including Desperate Housewives Felicity Huffman charged in college bribery scheme

first_img No Comments Tuesday 12 Mar 2019, 8:20 PM Image: AP/PA Images Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article FIFTY PEOPLE, INCLUDING Hollywood stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged today in a scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into some of the US’s most elite schools.Federal authorities called it the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the US Justice Department, with the parents accused of paying an estimated $25 million (€23 million) in bribes.“These parents are a catalogue of wealth and privilege,” US Attorney Andrew Lelling said in announcing the results of an investigation code-named Operation Varsity Blues.At least nine athletic coaches and 33 parents, many of them prominent in law, finance, fashion, manufacturing and other fields, were among those charged. Dozens, including Huffman, the Emmy-winning star of Desperate Housewives, were arrested by midday.The coaches worked at such schools as Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, Wake Forest, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California and the University of California, Los Angeles. A former Yale soccer coach pleaded guilty and helped build the case against others.No students were charged, with authorities saying that in many cases the teenagers were not aware of what was going on. And several of the colleges involved made no mention of expelling or taking any other action against the students.Prosecutors said parents paid an admissions consultant from 2011 through last month to bribe coaches and administrators to falsely make their children look like star athletes to boost their chances of getting into college. The consultant also hired ringers to take college entrance exams for students, and paid off insiders at testing centres to alter students’ scores.“For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected,” Lelling said.Several defendants, including Huffman, were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Governor asks Trump administration for more public meetings on offshore drilling proposal

first_imgMap showing previous offshore wells drilled in Alaska. (Image courtesy Bureau of Ocean Energy Management)A public meeting on a Trump administration draft proposal to open up more of Alaska’s waters to oil drilling is being rescheduled, due to the brief government shutdown.Listen nowThe meeting was originally set to take place tomorrow in Anchorage. The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management hasn’t yet settled on a new date.The Department of Interior is aiming to reverse Obama-era offshore drilling policy, which largely blocked oil development in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. Interior’s draft proposal would allow oil lease sales in the Arctic and also off all Alaska’s other coasts, except for the North Aleutian Basin, by Bristol Bay.Governor Bill Walker advocated for Arctic waters to be included in the federal offshore drilling plan. But Walker says he’s asking Interior to expand its outreach effort in Alaska by holding more than one public meeting.“We also are asking that the hearings be held, not just one in Anchorage, but in the particular areas where the activity would take place,” Walker said.Walker was speaking in Washington, D.C., where he was attending a ceremony for the King Cove road deal.Some groups, like communities across the Bering Strait region, strongly oppose drilling in areas the Trump administration is proposing to open up. Walker didn’t respond directly to a question about whether he will ask Interior to remove some areas included in the proposal. Instead, the governor said he will listen closely to communities that could be affected.Alaska Public Media Washington, D.C. correspondent Liz Ruskin contributed to this story.last_img read more

Here are the top 4 investment options for senior citizens

first_imgRetail depositors and their agents stand at the counters of an Indian post office in New Delhi, India, October 9, 2015 (Representational image).Reuters fileMaking an investment decision is never easy and especially so if you’re solely relying on your retirement savings.Most of us usually opt for a pension fund, provident fund or other secure debt instruments.But a good mix of fixed income and market linked products can offer optimal investment returns through one’s retirement period.Let’s look at how a senior citizen can make the most of it by picking the right investment instruments.Equity-Linked Savings Scheme (ELSS)ELSS is a market-linked savings plan that offers excellent returns if the right kind of investment portfolio is chosen.This investment option is not only ideal for senior citizens, but for anyone looking for an excellent investment choice.ELSS gives tax benefits as the amount one invests in ELSS is exempt from taxation under Section 80C, there are no long-term capital gains tax applicable on sale of these funds, and the tax on dividends is also not applicable.The minimum investment is Rs 500 and the lock-in period of the fund is just 3 years.Senior Citizens Savings SchemeThis scheme is especially tailored to the needs of senior citizens and is available both in banks and post offices.The maximum amount one can deposit in this account is Rs. 15 lakh and the tenure is 5 years.Interest rates on senior citizens savings scheme is higher than that in many other options – between 8.5 percent to 9.5 percent, but the interest earned on it is taxable.Pradhan Mantri Vaya Vandana YojanaThis scheme provides assured return of 8 percent on a pension plan by LIC.

Be yourself Air NZ boss tells Rotorua

first_imgAir NZ dares “to be different” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe has opened up to Rotorua’s business community, telling the city’s Chamber of Commerce the key to the carrier’s success lay in keeping communications open and encouraging a “culture of personality” within the company.”The focus of the business is around people and communication – a lot of business performance comes from that,” Mr Fyfe told the Chamber’s Focus on Business Lunch, held at the Distinction Hotel. “We are consistently recognised as one of the best-performing and innovative airlines in the world.”According to the Rotorua Daily Post, Mr Fyfe said stepping back from the carrier’s normal daily concerns had allowed him to focus on bringing to life to the airline “the personality that makes New Zealand a little different”.”[New Zealanders] need to have the confidence to be ourselves and recognise that we can be world-class by being ourselves, without having to emulate anyone else,” the Air NZ boss said. Daring to be “different”, Mr Fyfe added the airline was not afraid to be “bold, and at times, controversial”, the newpaper reported. On maintaining Rotorua’s trans-tasman flights, Mr Fyfe said it had been “really hard yakka in purely financial terms”, but was hopeful that with the support of the community and potential stronger ties with Australia’s Virgin Blue they could “stimulate more demand”.   According to the Rotorua Daily Post, the Air NZ boss added that the primary goal of the airline was to build up the frequency of Sydney flights, which Mr Fyfe said was “very important”.last_img read more

Former Laiki exec says hes been made a scapegoat

first_imgBy George PsyllidesA former Laiki Bank executive on trial for the lender’s collapse in 2013, said Monday he and other defendants have been made scapegoats and there was no truth in the charges they were facing.“I believe we have been targeted as scapegoats,” then-managing director Efthimios Bouloutas told the Nicosia criminal court. “There is no trace of truth in the charges we face and I want to state I am innocent.”Bouloutas, his deputy Panayiotis Kounnis, non-executive vice-president Neoclis Lysandrou and executive board member Marcos Foros face charges of market manipulation and submitting false or misleading information with regard to publishing an interim consolidated financial statement in November 2011, in which they omitted to include a goodwill writedown of €330m for Marfin Popular Bank’s – as Laiki was then known – operations in Greece.On March 21, the court found that prosecutors had established a prima facie case and the former executives must mount a defence to have it disproved.Bouloutas, a Greek national, said he felt his rights as a European citizen had been violated, suggesting there was a pressing need to charge him before Cypriot justice without first considering what he had to say.Bouloutas said it was parliament’s March 25, 2013 decision that “placed a tombstone on the Cypriot banking system.”His was referring to parliament’s decision to shutter Laiki and seize deposits in Bank of Cyprus after having rejected a milder haircut on all deposits in all banks a week earlier.“Both banks would have been in operation today without imposing the extreme haircut,” he said.On the goodwill omission, Bouloutas said the board did not have a clear picture of the situation created after the EU decided the second writedown on Greek debt in October 2011, inflicting huge losses on Laiki and Bank of Cyprus of around €4.5bn.He said it had been completely unexpected and without details. The questions raised at the time where only answered on February 24, 2012, he told the court.Their position was that without the practical implementation of the programme they were n ot able to make the correct accounting calculation.You May LikeSivanguardia.comWhat are these 7 things we can find in chicken eggs?Sivanguardia.comUndoit-house.infoConcept Cars That Should be Released by 2020it-house.infoUndoWomenTales.com20 Simple Tricks To Prolong Groceries’ Shelf Life And Save Some Serious BucksWomenTales.comUndo Greece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoState Legal Service condemns attack on attorney-generalUndoTwo of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
