A FedEx pilot is detained before boarding a flight in China

FedEx says one of its pilots was detained in China after an item was found in his luggage before he boarded a commercial flight.The company said Thursday the pilot was later released, and it is working with Chinese authorities to understand what happened at the airport in Guangzhou, in southern China.The Wall Street Journal reported that former U.S. Air Force pilot Todd A. Hohn was detained on Sept. 12 after pellets used in replica air guns were found in his checked bag. The paper cited people familiar with the incident.The newspaper said Chinese authorities allege that Hohn was illegally carrying ammunition, and they have started a criminal investigation.“We are working with the appropriate authorities to gain a better understanding of the facts,” a FedEx spokeswoman said in a statement sent to The Associated Press.FedEx said the pilot was later released, although the company spokeswoman said she did not know where he is now. The Journal reported that Hohn was moved to a hotel and told that he can’t leave mainland China until the investigation is over.FedEx declined to comment further. It would not say whether the incident has affected its schedule in Asia.The Air Line Pilots Association, which represents FedEx pilots, has told its members not to comment on social media because of the sensitive nature of an incident in China.A Federal Aviation Administration database of pilots lists a Todd A. Hohn in Niceville, Florida. He is licensed to fly several different planes including Boeing 757 and 767 jets used by FedEx.FedEx Corp. has been caught up in rising trade tension between the United States and China.This week, FedEx CEO Fred Smith blamed slower worldwide economic growth on trade uncertainty. Shares of FedEx fell 12.9% Wednesday — their worst day since 2008 — after the Memphis, Tennessee-based company reported disappointing quarterly profit and cut its estimate of full-year earnings.On Thursday, the stock finished up $1.54, or 1%, at $152.45.Earlier this year, Chinese technology giant Huawei complained about deliveries that FedEx misrouted. Shortly after that, in June, FedEx sued the Commerce Department to stop enforcement of export rules that restrict shipments to Huawei and other entities. Huawei is on a list of companies barred from receiving U.S. technology without a special license from the Commerce Department.The Associated Press read more

UN food agency launches emergency effort to aid half a million Palestinians

Warning that thousands of Palestinians were no longer able to afford basic needs, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today launched an emergency operation to help feed about half a million non-refugees living amid dramatically deteriorating conditions in the Palestinian Territories.”Hunger and malnutrition are rapidly increasing among the Palestinians,” said WFP Regional Director Khaled Adly. “Even when food is available in some of the markets, many impoverished Palestinians have become increasingly unable to meet all their food needs.”The Rome-based UN agency which said it hopes to provide about 70,000 tons of food to help the most needy Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip until the end of the year, currently had about 29,000 tons available for the eight-month programme. With the 41,000-ton deficit estimated to cost about $18 million, WFP has appealed for funds to cover the shortage.WFP voiced particular concern about some 360,000 extremely poor Palestinians, 60 per cent of whom belong to families where the breadwinner is a single mother, elderly, handicapped or chronically ill. The UN agency’s assistance will also go to help about 130,000 people who have lost their income as one or more members of the family lost their jobs in Israel due to security measures.Moreover, many hospitals and other social institutions have become unable to meet all the food needs of poor Palestinians using their services, WFP said, noting that it will provide food aid to about 10,000 people in these institutions, including children, anaemic women and the elderly.Even before the current crisis, many needy Palestinians had been dependent on special assistance provided by both the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Social Affairs and WFP.”Over the past three months, the Palestinian Authority has been unable to ensure the payment of the monthly cash assistance to these vulnerable people, leaving WFP as their main lifeline,” Mr. Adly said, voicing concern over restriction on access to some of these communities. read more

Watchdog group Corruption worsens under populist leaders

by David Rising, The Associated Press Posted Jan 24, 2017 10:57 pm MDT Last Updated Jan 25, 2017 at 8:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Thursday, May 12, 2016 file photo, Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, from left, Jose Ugaz, Transparency International, Daria Kaleniuk and Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg take part in a panel discussion at the Anti-Corruption Summit in London. Watchdog group Transparency International on Wednesday Jan. 25, 2017, is warning that people who turn to populist politicians who promise to change systems and end corruption may only be feeding the problem. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein, Pool, File) Watchdog group: Corruption worsens under populist leaders BERLIN – People who turn to populist politicians promising to upset the status quo and end corruption may only be feeding the problem, an anti-corruption watchdog group warned Wednesday.Transparency International said in its annual Corruption Perceptions Index for 2016 that in countries with populist or autocratic leaders, “instead of tackling crony capitalism, those leaders usually install even worse forms of corrupt systems.”The group’s board chairman, Jose Ugaz, cited Hungary and Turkey as examples. Their scores have worsened in recent years under leaders with authoritarian leanings, while Argentina, which ousted a populist government, has improved in the rankings, he said.Based on expert opinions of public sector corruption, the annual report rated Denmark and New Zealand as the least-corrupt countries, followed by Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, and Norway. Somalia was ranked most corrupt, followed by South Sudan, North Korea, and Syria.Rounding out the Top 10 least corrupt were Singapore, the Netherlands, Canada, and the tie-placing trio of Germany, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom in the No. 10 spot. The United States placed 18th, down from 16th in 2015.Transparency International research director Finn Heinrich told The Associated Press that the organization was taking a wait-and-see approach to Donald Trump’s presidency, but that already it had “serious concerns.”“Donald Trump came on board as the people in Hungary and Turkey, on an anti-corruption ticket. He said, ‘We’re going to drain this swamp,’” Heinrich said. “But if you look at his action so far, there is nepotism…. The people in his Cabinet have many conflicts of interest. They are not people who stand for transparency.”Hungarian government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs questioned the report. He said Transparency apparently had a higher opinion of Hungary before Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s return to power in 2010 when the previous Socialist-led government “stole away the funds from the European Union” — a reference to corruption in the construction of a Budapest subway line partially financed by the EU.“It is at least strange to accuse Hungary now, under the Orban government, of a problem with corruption,” Kovacs said.The index scores countries on a range of factors, such as whether government officials are held to account or go unpunished for corruption; the perceived prevalence of bribery; and whether public institutions respond to citizens’ needs.Nearly 70 per cent of the 176 countries scored below 50 on the 100-point scale, with a zero meaning a country is perceived to be highly corrupt and 100 indicating it’s perceived to be very clean.“This year, more countries declined in the index than improved, showing the need for urgent action,” the report said.The country that dropped most sharply in the rankings was Qatar, which has faced criticism over alleged human rights abuses involving migrant construction workers since it was chosen to host the 2022 World Cup of soccer. It dropped 10 points, falling to 31st on the list from 22nd last year.Still, Heinrich said Qatar’s government has in the past shown itself “willing and keen” to fight corruption, and that Transparency would appeal to them for more fundamental reforms to ensure better freedom of speech and more media freedom, among other things.“You can’t fight corruption without having accountability and transparency in the entire public process,” he said.Afghanistan, a perennial fixture near the bottom of the list, improved the most in 2016. Its score on the Transparency International index rose four points, but still was ranked 169th, just ahead of Libya, Sudan and Yemen._____Pablo Gorondi contributed to this report from Budapest. read more

India says he was kidnapped by Pakistan while he was in Iran.The nuclear-armed neighbours have a long history of diplomatic spats and Delhi and Islamabad often accuse each other of sending spies into their territories.In November last year, Pakistan withdrew six officials from its mission in Delhi after they were outed as suspected spies by India.It later leaked to the press the names and photos of eight alleged Indian spies working from India’s mission in Islamabad.But executions for spying are rare.In 1999, Pakistan hanged Sheikh Shamim 10 years after convicting him of spying.Sarabjit Singh died in prison in Pakistan in 2013 after more than 20 years on death row. Officials said he was attacked by other prisoners. read more

Entire plot of Avengers Endgame leaked online read at your own risk

first_imgAvengers Endgame opens on April 26, 2019Marvel StudiosMarvel fans all over the world are eagerly waiting for the release of Avengers: Endgame on April 26. But there will always be spoilers and they have flooded the internet. Some should not be taken seriously, while some appear with such genuine ideas that you just can’t ignore them.A new leak has been creating quite some noise on Reddit and it comes from a man who claims to have worked with one of the movie’s production houses. Now that is some serious credential.The user aptly named, ImLeaking, has shared the general outline of the plot as well as the fate of the biggest characters. The user claims to have worked with one of the production houses on a contract basis and that contract was terminated after someone was found to be leaking information.*Spoiler alert from here on.The plot of the movie goes like this –It all starts with Captain Marvel who is investigating a distress call from Xander before the decimation. Captain Marvel has formed an alliance with the Nova force. There, Rhomann Dey has decided that he will avenge the death of his family by killing Thanos himself. Captain Marvel tries to convince him against it but Rhomann doesn’t listen to her. Elsewhere, after exploring the Quantum Realm, Antman travels time and reaches 1996 to get a Kree device from Fury, the year is right after Captain Marvel leaves. Avengers Endgame movie trailerMarvel Studios (@marvelstudios/Instagram)After meeting Scott Lang, Nick Fury mistakes him to be a Skrull, and later he learns that Captain Marvel is well and living.  Now, back to Tony Stark, who is stranded in space, tries to boost the power of Benatar with just one Anulax battery to start the installation of a Quantum system that will help them to jump between different points in the universe. By doing so, they successfully return to Earth and after that, they create a suit that will protect them from time travel.Elsewhere, Rhomann and Captain Marvel go to face Thanos but they get overpowered by him. But does not get killed. On the other hand, the rest of the Avengers take help of the previous movies to find out how they can defeat Thanos. They try to prototype Vibranium but it fails for being unstable. They end up making the Gauntlet (which Thanos had but a broken one) with Uru metal from Mjolnir. The Gauntlet is then forged to fit the Hulk and Thor, who can use it because of their neural system. Though the green hero will be able to bring back all the dead Avengers, his arm will explode from the gauntlet.The climax would see Captain America dying as he will disintegrate once he controls the Gauntlet. The movie will also see Iron Man retiring.And as the credit scene goes this is what the leaker had to say, “it’s usually the last piece on a movie. There were discussions but I have a guess it’s related to Doctor Strange and a very secret scene with chroma in Atlanta. Sounds like the cosmic entity that helped Ant-Man is talking to Doctor Strange. And… if it’s decided to go with two, is probably a piece of Spider-Man Far From Home.”last_img read more

The Cowboys will be fine if Ezekiel Elliott misses time

first_imgThe Cowboys will be fine if Ezekiel Elliott misses timeEzekiel Elliott’s 6 game suspension was upheld on appeal, and even though Elliott will play in Week 1 against the Giants, barring a stay from a federal court judge, it looks like he’ll serve the suspension.Even though the Elliott is a top level talent, Colin thinks the Cowboys will be fine without him. Colin thinks he’s a great player, but the Dallas identity is rooted in their dominant offensive line, and the leadership of Dak Prescott.Even though they would be better with Elliott, they’ll still be able to run the ball without him until he eventually returns.The NFL says Tom Brady didn’t suffer any concussions, but the media will never buy itSeveral months ago, Tom Brady’s wife created a media firestorm when dhe casually mentioned that Brady had suffered concussions during the 2016 Super Bowl season. The NFL looked into the matter, and the findings of its probe found Brady didn’t suffer any concussions.Colin reviewed every hit Brady took during the season, and didn’t find any hits where Brady came up looking foggy or confused. Ultimately, he thinks that regardless of the evidence, the media won’t buy the findings because it doesn’t fit their narrative of the NFL as an evil, corrupt organization.There are instances where the NFL should be questioned, but ignoring empirical data on Brady proves that today’s media is more opinion and agenda driven than fact based. Believing the NFL is bad for business. Guests:Seth Joyner – Former All-Pro linebacker and Super Bowl champion is in-studio to discuss the Tom Brady concussion findings, and explain why he thinks Colin Kaepernick should have an NFL job.Eric Dickerson – Hall of Fame running back is in-studio to tell Colin why he disagrees with his take that Adrian Peterson is overrated, and why A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has to go.Anthony Herron – Fox Sports college football analyst joins the show to break down Sam Darnold’s Week 1 performance.last_img read more

Legally dead man wins local election in Mexico

first_imgMEXICO CITY — For a dead man, Lenin Carballido apparently ran a pretty good campaign.Last Sunday, nearly three years after he was officially declared dead, Carballido was narrowly elected mayor of San Agustín Amatengo, a small town in Mexico’s Oaxaca state.Carballido faked his own demise in 2010, according to Mexico’s Reforma newspaper, in order to evade charges stemming from a 2004 sexual assault.With police on his trail, Carballido “died” and obtained a coroner’s certificate in September 2010, affirming he had succumbed to “natural causes” after slipping into a diabetic coma. The charges were dropped.Carballido’s resurrection occurred this year when he ran as a local candidate for Mexico’s leftist Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD), beating his opponent Sunday by a margin of 11 votes, 515 to 504.Isidoro Yescas, a state election official in Oaxaca, said investigators were seeking to obtain an official copy of Carballido’s death certificate, which would leave him unfit for office.“Even if he’s been elected, such proof that he committed a crime would make him ineligible and strip him of his right to serve,” Yescas told Reforma, adding “this is not a typical electoral crime.”PRD officials said they were not aware that their candidate was legally dead.Washington Post special correspondent Gabriela Martinez contributed to this report.© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

Forgotten Costa Ricans featured on Facebook

first_imgNo related posts. You salivate over the fabulous food photos on Instagram. You plan dream vacations on Pinterest. You keep up with your neighbors on Facebook. But what about that other neighbor – the neighbor who is more concerned with finding food for her children than in photographing it for the Internet?With so much of our lives happening on the Internet today, it is easy to forget about those who are not online.“Social media has united people but has also created a bubble where we unwillingly exclude people in need,” said Major Gerardo Gochez, public relations officer with Costa Rica’s Salvation Army. “Most of the daily tweets are about food, joy, beach trips and outings with friends. With this campaign, the Salvation Army wants to give the forgotten a place in social media where they can show their reality, thus making the community aware of them.”The goal is to raise awareness that the poor, sick and hungry need much more than money. These “forgotten” people need understanding and a hand from all of us to get their lives back together. By putting photos of their lives on social media, the Salvation Army hopes to raise this awareness and inspire more people to volunteer.The campaign started last March. So far, it has received almost 7,000 likes on Facebook, where photos and videos of the forgotten are shared. Before the campaign, the Salvation Army had very few volunteers. Within the past two months, more than 70 volunteers have showed up to help. Yet while the campaign has increased the number of volunteers, more are needed, Gochez said.Plenty of opportunities exist to donate time at any of the 14 community centers located throughout the country. Volunteer possibilities range in scope. For example, a language school has partnered with the Salvation Army to provide service opportunities for foreign students in Costa Rica who want to learn Spanish. The students volunteered in corps to help children in need. Currently, the Salvation Army is in dire need of bilingual volunteers to work in the office, translating letters from sponsored children or doing simple paperwork.The Salvation Army also accepts money and donations of used goods. It resells the used goods at low prices in the San José store located between 3rd and 6th streets, on the corner of 18th Avenue. Donating your gently used items also helps the environment by giving the items a second use, as opposed to sending them to a landfill.“I believe in this project. It will save the life of a whole family, not just one person. My family is proof of it,” Gochez said.Gochez himself has personal experience with the saving grace of the Salvation Army. His alcoholic father entered the ARC center in Costa Rica 30 years ago seeking help for him and his family. His father received support and became sober, Gochez said, which was something he had never seen before.Today, Gochez and all of his siblings are leading happy lives. “Without the help of the Salvation Army, the story of those five children could have been very different and even tragic,” Gochez said.The Salvation Army invites you to follow and support the “forgotten” campaign. Here’s how you can help:Follow and share the links below on social media:Facebook: los olvidados por la sociedadTwitter: @losolvidadoscrInstagram: @olvidadoscrDonate money (85-89 percent of donations will go to sustain programs in needed communities)Donate gently used goods (these can be dropped off at any of the 14 locations located throughout Costa Rica)Donate your time as a volunteerCall or email for more information: 2257-7535, ext. 107, lan_relacionespublicas@lan.salvationarmy.org Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_imgAcademy welcomes 842 new members, half of them women AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK — The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences on Monday invited 842 members from 59 countries to the Oscars organization and, for the first time, reached gender parity in its new class of inductees.Half of the new invitees to the film academy are women. In 10 of the 17 branches — including the directing, writing and producing branches — more women than men were invited. This year’s class of new members also includes 29% people of colour.That’s a notable turnaround for an organization that has sought to diversity its ranks following criticism for all-white acting nominees in 2015 and 2016. Since 2015, the group’s overall female membership has grown from 25% to 32%, the academy said. Overall membership of people of colour has doubled, from 8% to 16%.To aid in the swift overhaul of the academy, the group last year invited a record 928 members. While smaller, this year’s class still ranks as one of the academy’s largest in its 92-year history.New invitees include Lady Gaga, Sterling K. Brown, Claire Foy, Letitia Wright, Tom Holland and Adele. Newly invited directors include “Crazy Rich Asians” filmmaker Jon Chu, “The Babadook” director Jennifer Kent and the filmmaking duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller.If most accept their invites, the film academy will number more than 9,000 members.Next year’s Academy Awards will be held on Feb. 9, several weeks earlier than usual.Jake Coyle, The Associated Press by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Jul 1, 2019 2:17 pm PDT Lady Gaga participates in the second annual Stonewall Day honoring the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, hosted by Pride Live and iHeartMedia, in Greenwich Village on Friday, June 28, 2019, in New York.
