Militants post video of kidnapped Saudi diplomat

first_img Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help It said that a Saudi citizen on the kingdom’s most-wanted list of terror suspects, Mashaal Rasheed al-Shawdakhi, relayed the demands by telephone to the Saudi embassy in Yemen, and that he warned that the diplomat could be killed if they were not met.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Comments   Share   Associated PressCAIRO (AP) – Al-Qaida militants in Yemen have posted online a new video of a kidnapped Saudi Arabian diplomat appealing to the kingdom’s rulers to grant his captors’ demands and save his life.The three-minute clip that appeared on a militant Web site early Monday was similar to another video released in May: The speaker identified himself as Abdullah Mohammed Khalifa al-Khaldi, deputy Saudi consul in the Yemeni port city of Aden, who was kidnapped in March. There was no sign of his captors in either video. Four benefits of having a wireless security system The abducted diplomat said that al-Qaida would release him if the kingdom freed female militant prisoners. “Why you have rejected the organization’s demand to release the women from prison?” he asked, addressing Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah and other senior Saudi officials.“My fate is tied to these women,” al-Khaldi said. “Release the women and they will free me the next day.”The video was produced by al-Malahem, the media arm of the terror network’s Yemen branch, known as Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. It is considered by the U.S. to be the movement’s most dangerous offshoot.Political turmoil caused by an uprising last year has caused a security vacuum in Yemen. Al-Qaida seized large swaths of territory across the restive south, but government forces have recently launched several offensives that forced the militants to flee towns held by them for more than a year.“Please don’t leave me to an unknown fate as long as these women are in prison,” said al-Khaldi, who appeared dressed in a Saudi-style white Arab robe and checkered headdress. The Saudi Interior Ministry has said earlier that the demands also include paying a ransom and releasing other male prisoners.center_img Sponsored Stories Top Stories Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family 4 sleep positions for men and what they meanlast_img read more

AirAsia X gets Branson approval

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A Sir Richard Branson Virgin Blue group founder Sir Richard Branson has commended Malaysian run AirAsia X for its business success, claiming Malaysia could learn a lot from the long haul budget carrier.Speaking at an investment conference in Malaysia, Sir Branson said the airline was “doing a good job” and advised Malaysia to follow the carrier’s lead and privatise their large government linked companies in order to attract foreign investment and increase competition. “Break them up into smaller companies for them to compete with each other,” he told Bernama. “It will be better if Malaysia can be more liberal and open.”According to Sir Branson, AirAsia X “helped transform Malaysia”, the company’s success attributed to the fact that it was “more nimble compared with bigger government-run companies”.Sir Branson may show further support for AirAsia if Virgin Racing performs worse than Lotus F1 Racing at the end of the F1 season, Sir Branson and AirAsia group CEO Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes betting that the losing party will dress up as an airline stewardess of the winner’s airline. “I think Tony will be fetching in a Virgin stewardess [outfit]. “I think he Tony is making an outfit for me as well,” Sir Branson said. last_img read more

Serena Williams Young boys need domestic abuse ed

first_imgSerena Williams: Young boys need domestic abuse education by John Carucci, The Associated Press Posted Jun 21, 2018 8:12 am PDT Last Updated Jun 21, 2018 at 12:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Professional tennis player Serena Williams appears at an event to launch a national street art campaign with Allstate Foundation Purple Purse to make domestic violence and financial abuse visible, at TicTail Market on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, in New York. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Serena Williams says the conversation about stopping domestic abuse shouldn’t just centre around women, but men as well.The tennis superstar says education about domestic abuse should start when men are young boys.“I think expanding the conversation to men and expanding the conversation to young boys, it’s so important,” she said in an interview on Wednesday.“This is a human rights issue. We should all be treated the same. We should be treated equal. With domestic abuse, it doesn’t care what colour you are, what background you’re from,” she continued.“It’s important to get the message out there — to our young men, to our boys, to our daughters — to let that new generation, and let the generation now know that, let’s stop this. Let’s change this. Let’s create a better us.”The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion is the ambassador for the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse initiative, which aims to help stop domestic abuse and what it calls the financial abuse that can accompany such relationships.Williams says being the mother of an infant daughter makes the issue more important to her.“This could be something that my daughter could face and that’s not cool,” she said at a Purple Purse event. “I want her to know that she can always talk to me, and talk to other people. That maybe she doesn’t have a voice, maybe she can’t use her voice, but we can be her voice, we can support her in so many different ways,” Williams said.Williams was pregnant with 1-year-old Olympia Ohanian when she won the Australian Open in January 2017. She returned to Grand Slam play last month at the French Open but had to withdraw after reaching the fourth round due to a pectoral chest injury.Williams says she anticipates being healthy for next month’s Wimbledon tournament.“Oh that’s a plan, absolutely, absolutely, and I’ve been working toward it,” she said.She also spoke about her father, Richard Williams, and his upcoming induction into the American Tennis Association’s Hall of Fame. Williams coached Serena and her fellow champion sister, Venus, from when they were children until they were winning titles as adults.“That’s really wonderful and I know he is really excited about that and I am, too,” she said. “I was just with him yesterday and we talked about it. It was great.”___This story has been corrected to show the name of the foundation is the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse.___Online:https://www.purplepurse.com/last_img read more

Ground broken for new Jewish Museum in Cyprus

first_imgBy Evie AndreouReligious leaders, representatives of the government and of 10 other countries, and members of the Jewish community came together in Larnaca this week for the official opening of the Jewish community centre and the ground-breaking for the new Jewish Museum of Cyprus.After the grand opening of the Jewish community centre in Larnaca, the minister of commerce and energy, Georgios Lakkotrypis symbolically laid soil in what will become, the Jewish Museum of Cyprus.According to the announcement from the Jewish community, the purpose of the Museum is to reach out and educate everyone about what the Cypriot people did to help many Holocaust refugees, facts about Israel and more information about the Jewish people.“The museum will promote awareness, tolerance and show how the Jewish people and Israel are important contributors to culture, education, science and the arts and will encourage a better understanding of cultures so that in this environment there can be long lasting peace in the Middle East,” the announcement said.The museum will be constructed adjacent to the current Jewish centre in Larnaca and its first virtual reality exhibits are expected to be operational by May 14, 2020.Guests had also the opportunity to see a Nissen hut, “an original and rare artefact”, remnant of the British Internment camps in Dhekelia, after World War II. The hut, found by the Chief Rabbi of Cyprus, Rabbi Arie Zeev Raskin, along with his second eldest son, Shneor Zalman Raskin, had been professionally removed and rebuilt at the site, near the Jewish community centre.The Nissen hut can be seen in the background“The restoration and display of this Nissen hut was placed as a sign of gratitude from the Jewish Community of Cyprus to the noble of men and women who have extended their hands in kindness to the Jewish refugees, (which numbered over 53,000 ) rescued from the flames of the Holocaust and who stayed at the British DP Camps between 1946 – 1949 at their last stop on their journey to their homeland of Israel,” the statement said.It added that over 2,200 Jewish children were born on Cyprus soil during that period.In recent years, the Jewish community of Cyprus started organising themselves around a small community centre in Larnaca. “Now, after only a few years we have community centres in Larnaca, Limassol, Paphos, Ayia Napa and Nicosia.”“We are now more than three thousand five hundred Jewish residents that have chosen Cyprus to be their home” said the Chairman of the Jewish Community Centre, Shahak Avni during his speech.On behalf of the government the minister of defence, Savvas Angelides and the minister of transport , Vassiliki Anastassiadou, also attended the event.The Mayor of Larnaca, Andreas Vyras, thanked the community for the wonderful cooperation over the years, and expressed his wishes for a long and happy friendship. You May LikeHowStuffWorksQuiz: What’s Your Mental Age?HowStuffWorksUndoamazing journey10 Best Places For Fall Travelamazing journeyUndoSoGoodlyMan Bought A Log Cabin For $100, And What He Did With It Made Everyone JealousSoGoodlyUndo At least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoGreece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoHouse rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

in this case that bone involves the option to set HDR or High Dynamic Range to automatic If you’re not familiar with HDR think of it as a sophisticated form of contrast designed to better express the light range of a given scene (especially say on a bright sunny day) In short with HDR enabled Apple takes three shots of a scene at different exposures then folds those shots into one to produce something that in theory looks superior to any one HDR has been available in iOS for a while but you have to manually enable or disable it and while iOS kindly stores both HDR and non-HDR versions of a photo for your perusal if you didn’t want HDR enabled for a shot and you left it on it’s a minor pain to have to go back and delete all those superfluous snaps With iOS 71 if you have an iPhone 5s you can set HDR to auto turning control over to the iPhone’s sensor which should enable or disable the feature intelligently based on your surroundings The interface feels faster I don’t have an iPhone 4 and that’s where people are supposed to see the biggest speed improvements but on my original iPhone 5 applications load noticeably faster from tap to finish I suspect this has as much to do Apple speeding up iOS 7’s animations as under-the-hood tweaks The bug fixes Apple’s been quashing fires since iOS 7 launched some of them fairly serious others less so According to Apple iOS 71 includes improvements to Touch ID fingerprint recognition and a fix for “an occasional Home screen crash bug” As for stability improvements I didn’t have the random crashes you’ve maybe seen a handful complain about so I can’t claim “more stable” as an iOS 71 sell point If your iPhone crashed a lot after updating to iOS 7 it’s possible Apple’s managed to further stabilize things but I suspect this has more to do with the particular apps you run (versus someone else’s lineup) thus your mileage as usual is going to vary Update: My colleague Harry McCracken notes that he too experienced crashes running iOS 7 but that they occurred on 64-bit iOS devices like the iPhone 5s and newer iPads (he says his iPhone 5 like mine has been relatively stable) So the theory and it’s just a theory is that people running 64-bit iOS devices are going to benefit more from the iOS 71 update’s stability improvements And two reasons — one model-specific one general — not to update to 71 now: Some people complain the update breaks Touch ID Touch ID Apple’s fingerprint recognition tool exclusive to the iPhone 5s is one of those things that either works for people or doesn’t Some folks are saying the iOS 71 update improves Touch ID’s recognition significantly while others — in particular some folks on Apple’s official support forums — claim the opposite: that it stops Touch ID from working entirely If Touch ID works for you now before the update and you depend on it you might want to wait on the 71 update until we know more about the veracity (and commonness) of those support board claims You want to buy a car that supports CarPlay CarPlay is Apple’s way of getting iOS into your car’s dash without licensing iOS directly to auto manufacturers (or selling an Apple-branded iCar) It transplants the relevant aspects of your iPhone’s interface to a touchscreen in your car’s dash allowing you to interact with your iPhone without handling the phone itself: plug in and you’re in business able to get directions initiate calls listen to music or send and receive messages Better yet CarPlay supports third-party music playback apps including Spotify Beats Music and iHeartRadio (Apple promises more are coming soon) Apple’s being careful to restrict how you interface with each feature of course so you can use the touchscreen or physicals controls (say on the steering column) to initiate a call or peruse music but you’ll have to use Siri if you want to send (and in this case dictate) a message to someone The catch: CarPlay will only be in Ferrari Honda Hyundai Mercedes Benz and Volvo vehicles in 2014 (with more brands to follow at unspecified dates) I assume that means late 2014 at the earliest since this year’s new models won’t be out until mid-summer Call CarPlay a “reason to update in three or four months” then Write to Matt Peckham at mattpeckham@timecom archbishop of Karachi;

unknown to take up arguably the toughest assignment in world cricket Upton was in a role that was new to cricket while childhood buddy Gary Kirsten was coaching a teamat any levelfor the first time Little did the two know that three-and-a-half years later they would return home to familiar climes having wooed about a billion hearts only to face up to another tough challenge They ended up guiding South Africa to the pinnacle in all three formats of the game In the process the duo earned a reputation of being the Midas menwho could magically transform teams Rewind to early 2008 Awaiting Upton

the Indian conundrum had never gotten a free reign at the top The similarities involved with their tasks at hand at the time of taking over were uncanny Two multicultural outfits Two countries where cricket is influenced as much by external factors as performances on the field Two teams seeking a mantra to overcome the final hurdle from the zenith a sense of ruthlessness Of talent there was no dearth whatsoever Just like IndiaSouth Africa were blessed with some of the world’s most established and experienced batsmen in their line-up A bunch of seniors at the peak of their powers but lacking

And he blossomed under them Just like an under-pressure yet self-confident Smith rediscovered himself under their auspices Both skippers eventually lifting the mace signifying their ascent to the top of the world The relationship between the two friends of course goes back to the days Upton was South Africa’s first-ever fitness trainer back in the 1990s and Kirsten a dogged left-handed opener The
