The Bangladeshi dressing room is very relaxed and the team is happy to be playing the semi-final of the ICC Champions Trophy, coach Chandika Hathurusingha said ahead of their crunch game against India on Thursday.He also ruled out the game as some sort of revenge after that 2015 World Cup quarter-final loss against India where a couple of decisions went against the Tigers.”There is no feeling of revenge. It’s about playing a good game against India. We are thinking of competing and doing our best,” the coach was quoted as saying by Bangladesh newspaper ‘The Daily Star’ on Wednesday.”The mood is very good. We are very relaxed. We are looking forward to the game. At the start of the tournament I said that whatever we will achieve is going to be big and so we are very happy about where we are and the way we have played so far,” he told reporters after the morning training session.Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza even found the time to fool around with his coach.”For everyone, including the coaching staff, it’s the first time and our aim is to go and express ourselves. It’s not a very big game; it’s a very big opportunity. So, for both the seniors and the juniors my message is to grab this opportunity with both hands,” Hathurusingha said.Experimenting with the batting order was something he should not have done in one of the games, the coach admitted.”I should admit that we strayed from our original plan in one game. I take the blame. But we still back our initial thought that we need to give players enough opportunity to get used to certain places. He (Sabbir Rahman) has got limited opportunities to prove (himself) and deserves more opportunities.”advertisementHathurusingha indicated the same playing eleven would be retained for Thursday’s game against India.”That’s the biggest challenge (settling on a combination) we had. We knew we had good enough skills. We have a good combination in place — a good combination of youth and experience,” he said.Bangladesh, in the last few years, have set a target of doing well overseas, the coach said.”It was a gradual improvement if you look at our progress over the last two years. The World Cup was the big turning point for us. We went to the quarterfinals by beating England. Then we set a target to do well at home and we have achieved that. And for the last year or so we set our target of doing well overseas. And coming all the way to play the semifinal is a big step for us.”We are very confident. We don’t want to think who our opposition is but we want to maximise our potential to give ourselves the best chance,” he said, adding that India are still one of the favourites to win the title.Hathurusingha conceded they are not favourites against India adding a victory would boost their morale big time.”To be honest not many people will give us a chance to win against India. They are a good team but if we can beat them it will be a very good achievement for us,” he said.
Ramkumar Ramanathan and Prajnesh Gunneswaran suffered defeats as India went 0-2 down against Serbia in the the World Group Play-off tie against Serbia in Kraljevo on Friday.Ramanathan tried his best but couldn’t match up to Laslo Djere and went down fighting 6-3 4-6 6-7(2) 2-6 while Gunneswaran squandered enough chances to lose his match to world number 56 Dusan Lajovic 4-6 3-6 4-6.Ramkumar battled hard and even gave the Serb a run for his money but ultimately fell short in an intense three hour and 11 minutes battle on the indoor clay courts at Kraljevo Sports Venue.Djere, who is currently ranked 86 in the world, had lost both his Davis Cup matches before meeting Ramkumar.After Ramkumar’s loss, the onus was on Prajnesh to bring India back into the tie but the left-hander gave away many break points to lose to the world No.56 in one hour and 57 minutes.It’s imperative to take little chances that players with the caliber of Lajovic give and Prajnesh had plenty of them but did not take those. He had nine break points but converted only two.INDIA DOWN 2-0 TO SERBIA@PrajneshGP lost in straight sets to 56th ranked clay specialist Susan Lajovic 4-6 3-6 4-6 after Ramkumar’s loss earlier.Onto the doubles now.Pic Credits – Florian(@flyctory) pic.twitter.com/5JzHDZt7QTIndian Tennis Daily (@IndiantennisFan) September 14, 2018For the tie to stay alive, Rohan Bopanna and N. Sriram Balaji must defeat Nikola Milojevic and Danilo Petrovic in the doubles rubber on Saturday.advertisementIn the absence of reigning US Open Champion Novak Djokovic and injured Filip Krajinovic, the Indian players were expected to win at least one rubber on the opening day.Ramkumar pulled away in the opening set with a break of serve in the sixth game. The Indian was solid with his returns from the baseline while Djere faltered on the second breakpoint, sending a forehand return long.An easy hold in the next put Ramkumar ahead 5-2. He served out the set in the ninth game when Djere hit a backhand wide from an advantageous position. With Ramkumar at the middle of the net, the Serb attempted a passing winner and could not keep the ball inside the lines.Ramkumar charged to the net several times, as he has been doing of late, in the second set and got a few points. He used to stay mostly at the baseline but now he has worked on his serve and volley skills after training with Sanjay Singh, who has a long association with master-of-the-art Leander Paes.Djere curtailed his errors, hardly lost points on his serve and led 3-2. Before that happened, Serbian captain Nenad Zimonjic argued with the chair umpire for overturning a call from the linesman, who called fault on Ramkumar’s first serve at 40-30 in the fourth game.The chair umpire checked the spot where the ball landed when Ramkumar protested against the call and awarded an ace in Ramkumar’s favour.Serving at 4-5, Ramkumar could not pick up a half-volley and netted a backhand slice to hand two set points to Djere. He need good serve at that crunch time but served a double fault to put the match on even-keel.Ramkumar hit a backhand to the net on the second break point in the second game to fall behind 0-2 but a flurry of errors from Djere in the next game, made it back on serve.There was no break of serve after that but Ramkumar saved a break point in the fiercely fought 12th game to force a tie-breaker. Djere cruised to a 4-0 lead and closed the set with an ace.Ramkumar had chance to break Djere twice in the fourth set but he did not capitalise on those. However, the Serb did not miss what came his way and broke Ramkumar for a crucial 4-2 lead. There was no stopping Djere from there.(With inputs from PTI)

I hope it could be something like Leicester or even more, I hope.”We did a special year together in Leicester to win the league.

I remember when I was asked a year ago [about leaving Leicester to miss the Champions League], I was sure to join this good club. We did well last season and now we have to play in the Champions League, we will fight to do well in all the competitions.”Chelsea face Arsenal at home next in the Premier League and Kante admits that his international team-mate, Alexandre Lacazette, is a man to watch out for.”I think maybe in England, you don’t know him very well but he has started to score,” Kante said.”In France, he was a very good goalscorer who scored for many, many years and he will be a threat for Sunday’s game. We have to be ready to stop him but the most important thing is the team and we need to win.”
Romelu Lukaku How West Ham passed up the chance to get Lukaku for £65m less than Man Utd Chris Burton Last updated 1 year ago 02:31 12/9/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Romelu Lukaku West Ham United Manchester United Chelsea Premier League The Hammers opted against a move while the Belgian, who joined the Red Devils over the summer for £75 million, was still on the books at Chelsea West Ham could have landed Romelu Lukaku for £65 million less than Manchester United but opted against a deal, David Sullivan has revealed.The Belgium international moved to Old Trafford over the summer for £75 million having proven himself as a Premier League frontman during spells at West Brom and Everton.Both of those clubs took the 24-year-old on loan from Chelsea, with the latter reaching a permanent agreement in 2014.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player West Ham could, however, have landed Lukaku for just £10m had then manager Sam Allardyce not opposed the tabling of an offer to London rivals at Stamford Bridge.Hammers co-owner Sullivan told The Guardian on an unfortunate saga: “I asked Sam if he fancied Lukaku.“Sam said he’d take him on loan but he wouldn’t buy him for that. Again I’ve supported the manager.”Sullivan and fellow owner David Gold have pumped considerable funding into West Ham in an effort to establish the club in the Premier League and guide them towards a bright future.A move to the London Stadium was intended to help aid that quest, but mismanagement on and off the field has seen the club stagnate somewhat.Slaven Bilic has been removed from his managerial post this season and replaced by David Moyes, with recent transfer dealings playing their part in that process.Sullivan admits that he is partly responsible after taking a step back from player recruitment, but he intends to right those wrongs.He claims Joe Hart, Marko Arnautovic, Javier Hernandez and Pablo Zabaleta were all Bilic targets that have so far failed to deliver, but funds will be made available again in January.Sullivan added: “I regret it in a way, the first year I was more involved and the next two years I was less involved. We’ve let the manager pick who he wants.“Maybe going forward we won’t. We have to take a look at the age of the players we’re signing. We will have to bring in two or three in January. They won’t be old journeymen, they will be young players. They won’t be 32.”

Labatt Breweries of Canada says it will buy Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Okanagan Cider in an agreement with the Mark Anthony Group of Companies. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Aaron Harris Labatt to buy Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Okanagan Cider, Palm Bay in US$350M deal TORONTO – A growing taste for sweeter drinks has pushed Labatt Breweries into its latest acquisition for the Canadian rights to Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Okanagan Cider and a couple of other alcoholic beverages.The Canadian brewer, which is owned by Belgian company Anheuser-Busch InBev, said late Tuesday it has struck a US$350-million deal with the Mark Anthony Group of Companies that will also give it ownership of Palm Bay pre-mixed drinks and the Turning Point Brewery in British Columbia, which brews Stanley Park beers.The move would diversify Labatt’s growing stable of drinks and put the company into a market where its hardly tread before.For years, Labatt rarely made anything but beer, but spokesman Charlie Angelakos said changing consumer preferences have meant the company needs to be more nimble.“Increasingly consumers are looking for sweeter options,” he told The Canadian Press.“We plan to make the most of these opportunities by making strong consumer connections with the acquired brands and growing their presence across the country.”Once the deal is finalized, which is expected to happen in the coming months, Labatt will have a bigger stake in both the growing pre-mixed drinks and ciders markets, which have been growing in popularity.According to data from Labatt, sales of pre-mixed drinks have grown by seven per cent annually over the past three years.Popularity in ciders has also soared, rising 20 per cent annually over the same period after years of limited availability in Canadian bars and liquor stores.Labatt has been tapping into niche markets over the past few years.Last month, Labatt grabbed a larger stake in the craft beer market when it bought up Mill Street Brewery in Toronto for an undisclosed amount, its sixth acquisition of a North American craft brewer since 2011.Under the agreement with the Mark Anthony Group, Labatt’s parent company also gains the international trademark rights — which exclude the United States.The Mark Anthony Group would retain full ownership of its U.S. operations and its Canadian wine, spirits and beer import and distribution business, which the company said is where it will focus its growth plans.“This is a very bold step into the future for our business,” said founder and CEO Anthony von Mandl in a news release.“Once this transaction is complete it will provide even greater financial capacity as we embark on a new era of significant investments and growth in our businesses in Canada, the United States and beyond.”Labatt has a portfolio of more than 60 beers made in six breweries in Canada. Under the agreement, the company will bring in about 170 employees.Once an independent giant in Canada’s beer industry, Labatt was bought in 1995 by a Belgian group that has continued to grow by buying and merging with other companies around the world. The group, now called Anheuser-Busch InBev, is currently attempting to buy SABMiller, the world’s second-biggest beermaker.Follow @dj_friend on Twitter.
According to media reports, gunmen disguised as paramilitary police killed 10 people at the foot of Pakistan’s second-highest peak, Nanga Parbat. The dead include a number of Ukrainians and Chinese, as well as an American citizen and their Pakistani guide.“The Secretary-General is deeply concerned by the mounting terrorist attacks and bombings in Pakistan, which in the past several weeks alone have claimed the lives of dozens of civilians,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement issued last night.Just over a week ago, a series of deadly attacks targeted a bus, a hospital facility and a historic house in Pakistan, killing at least 20 civilians, many of whom were female students.“While reiterating the support of the United Nations to the Government of Pakistan in the face of terrorism and extremism, he urges it to take immediate measures to bring the perpetrators to justice and to ensure security,” the statement said.Mr. Ban also extended his condolences to the victims and their families.
Today Apple released iOS 5 to the public, which also marks the official arrival of iCloud. The updated operating system also brings a variety of other features, including revamped notifications, iMessage, Newsstand, Reminders, Twitter integration, wireless firmware updates, and more.With iOS 5 and iCloud taken together, this is easily the biggest software update we have seen since the first iPhone launched in 2007. Even last year’s iOS 4 update, which brought multitasking, folders, and Facetime, was relatively minor in comparison.NotificationsAside from iCloud, the biggest new feature may be Apple’s new Notifications. Gone are the blue pop-ups that had infested iOS devices for the last four years, even while rival OS’s Android and WebOS moved on to more advanced alerts.The new notifications center borrows heavily from Android, featuring a drop down menu that can be accessed by sliding down from the status bar (they also reside on the lock screen).Real-time alerts, meanwhile, are now subtle banners that briefly appear at the top of your screen. While the blue beasties used to stop everything and require an input in order to proceed, these notifications allow you to continue doing whatever you were doing (you can retrieve the full message by tapping the banner). These were heavily influenced by jailbreak app MobileNotifier. That application’s developer, Peter Hajas, was hired by Apple earlier this year.iMessageiMessage, meanwhile, is Apple’s assault on wireless carriers’ text messaging plans (while taking a swipe at Blackberry Messenger and Google Voice texting as well). It uses an Instant Messaging (data-only) protocol as a replacement for pricey SMS plans. Integrated into the standard text messaging app, any friends who are on iOS devices will automatically be contacted via iMessage. Anyone who isn’t on an iOS device will be sent a standard text.Not to be defeated so easily, the carriers are already defending themselves against the potential threat of iMessage: AT&T recently announced that they are no longer offering their middle-tier of text messaging plans. It’s either the $20/month unlimited plan, or pay 20 cents per message. Those sneaky rascals.RemindersReminders makes even more sense now than it did when Apple introduced it last June. At the time, it looked like it was a natural extension of iCloud and notifications. Now we see that it is also integral to Siri on the iPhone 4S.This feature essentially kills off many of the popular third-party To-Do List apps that saturate the App Store. Make a checklist of things to do, and you’ll be notified at a pre-selected time. You can even set a notification to go off when you arrive at a set location.If you have an iPhone 4S, Siri will access Reminders (among a variety of other apps and services) to let you set reminders for yourself without even looking at your iPhone.NewsstandNewsstand is probably one of the less stellar features of iOS 5, but it does serve a purpose. Rather than managing periodical subscriptions through the App Store, Apple now stores all of your electronic magazine subscriptions in one place.Consider Newsstand Apple’s attempt to usher publishing further into the digital age. More specifically, it’s their attempt to tie those subscriptions to their platform and their devices.TwitteriOS 5 also brings system-wide Twitter integration to the table.If you’re browsing Safari, and come across a story that you want to tweet, simply hit the Tweet option from Safari’s menu, and you’re done. The same goes for pictures you just took, or a plethora of other things from any app that integrates iOS 5’s Twitter API into it.Links are automatically shortened, locations can be included, and contact names will auto-fill. It all adds up to a quick and easy way to tweet anything from anywhere on your iDevice.Camera/PhotosApple gave us lots of fun goodies in relation to the Camera and Photos apps in iOS 5, some of which integrate with iCloud, some of which just make things more convenient.The camera can now be accessed by simply touching a button on the lockscreen. iPhone 4S users will be ready to take gorgeous 8MP pics in hardly any time at all, while the rest of us will have to wait a few seconds for the camera app to open and ready itself.The camera also lets you zoom by using pinch-to-zoom. This one is so simple and Apple-like it’s hard to believe that it wasn’t included in the first version of iOS. You can also tap-to-focus on a part of an image, and use grid lines to help setup your image’s composition.One of the simplest, yet most useful, tweaks is that pictures can now be taken by tapping the volume up button. Previous versions of iOS required you to tap the button on the screen (you can still do it that way too). Using the volume button as a shutter button may help avoid some accidentally blurred pics when pushing the touchscreen.Finally, the Photos app now allows you to edit your photos from right within the app. While it isn’t exactly Photoshop, it offers the most common basic photo editing options (auto-correct, brightness, cropping, etc.), and it does them all well. This will be especially convenient as your pics will all now be automatically uploaded to iCloud. If you needed third-party apps to tweak your images before sending to the cloud, that could get messy. This keeps it all clean and highly functional.Split Keyboard (iPad only)Only iPad users will get this one, but if you’re an owner of Apple’s tablet, the split keyboard just may completely change how you feel about typing on your iPad.What the split keyboard lacks in beauty, it more than makes up for in function. Having been extremely popular on Android (first in the pioneering Thumb Keyboard and the copycat Swiftkey X for Tablets), split keyboards allow you to hold your tablet with two hands and tap away with both thumbs. It may take a little getting used to at first, but it will soon make typing with a standard on-screen keyboard feel like more of a chore than it already does.Best of all, you can easily switch between the two kinds of keyboards on the fly. Simply drag a small indicator on the keyboard up or down to toggle between the two. Give it a shot, iPad owners – you won’t likely look back.SafariSeveral big changes are added to iOS’ stock browser with iOS 5.Tabbed browsing comes to the iPad. Of course mobile Safari has allowed you to keep multiple browser windows open since the beginning, but only now can tablet users see all of their tabs lined up at the top of your screen, similar to a desktop browser.Reading List and Reader are two sister features that are sure to make the excellent Instapaper app lose some business. If you see something that you want to store for later on, simply tap the Read Later button, and it will appear in a list, waiting for you whenever you’re ready. Reader, which has already appeared in Safari on OS X Lion, gives you a cleanly-formatted view of the primary text and images on a web page (also just like Instapaper). It makes for a nice, clutter-free reading experience.AirPlayLast, but most definitely not least are the AirPlay capabilities that iOS 5 brings. AirPlay isn’t altogether new to iOS 5, but what is new is everything that you can see on your iOS device’s screen can now be mirrored on a TV set (along with an Apple TV).If this doesn’t seem like such a huge thing now, consider the potential that this will offer. A few years down the road, when iOS gaming has advanced, your iPhone or iPad will not only be a portable gaming console, but it will also double as a home console and the controller. Really, it already is these things with stellar console-esque games like Infinity Blade, the upcoming Infinity Blade 2, 9mm, and Dead Space.But when Apple gets to the A6 or A7 processor within the next few years, the line between mobile and console gaming will be further blurred, and this will be a big-time feature. Remember Nintendo’s upcoming Wii-U with its tablet-like controller? That’s essentially what your iPad will be with the help of AirPlay and Apple TV.Get iOS 5 NowYou can install iOS 5 on any iOS device that was released in 2009 or later. That would be the iPhone 3GS, 4, and 4S; the iPad 1 and 2; and the iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation.Simply update to iTunes 10.5, connect your iDevice, and download the software update. This may actually be the last iOS update you ever do over iTunes, as iCloud will allow you to download delta wireless updates from now on.Finally, the days of Apple charging for iOS updates on older devices are long gone – this one is free for all of those devices.
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging the constitutionality of the U.S. government’s surveillance program that collects from U.S. phone companies the call records of tens of millions of Americans.It is the first substantive lawsuit following reports in The Washington Post and the Guardian last week detailing two sweeping surveillance programs run by the National Security Agency under laws authorized by Congress after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.The ACLU suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, challenges the legality of the spy agency’s collection of customer “metadata,” including the phone numbers dialed and the length of calls. The lawsuit is asking the court to force the government to end the program and purge any records it has collected.The program, first disclosed by the Guardian, collects such information, used by intelligence analysts to detect patterns and personal connections, on every phone call made or received by U.S. customers of major American phone companies. The once-secret program was acknowledged last week by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who is named in the ACLU lawsuit.The suit was filed hours after Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused Clapper of failing to give “straight answers” about the scope of the NSA’s surveillance programs during a committee hearing in March.
Share Katy ISDKaty ISD Superintendent Lance Hindt announced his resignation during Thursday’s board meeting.Katy ISD superintendent Lance Hindt announced he is leaving his position, effective January 1st, 2019. The sudden announcement came at Thursday’s board meeting, and was met with some cheers from attendees. This comes on the heels of past bullying claims from a former classmate of his; which garnered national media attention. Hindt has strongly denied the allegations.Below is video of the former classmate, Greg Barrett, accusing Hindt of bullying when they were junior high school students. He was speaking during a public forum at a March 19 Katy ISD work study board meeting.“In light of an organized, relentless, and dishonest smear campaign against me, I cannot remain as superintendent of Katy ISD,” said Hindt, during his resignation announcement at Thursday’s meeting. “My family is now my number one priority. They are innocent bystanders. This malicious campaign against me is hurting them severely and I cannot allow it any further.”The Katy ISD board unanimously voted Thursday to pursue a defamation suit on behalf Hindt.
Share Alex Wong/Getty ImagesSpecial counsel Robert Mueller (center) leaves after a closed meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 21, 2017, at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.Updated at 9:42 a.m.Thursday marks one year since the appointment of Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller. Has any public figure in the United States ever become such a partisan lightning rod after having said so little?Mueller has achieved the unusual distinction of being both intensely reviled and deeply beloved after appearing on no TV programs and no radio call-in shows; in no newspaper interviews; and in no Snapchat stories, Facebook Live streams or Twitter threads.Except, that is, for all the ones in which he has appeared — as the subject, or as a character, or as the victim of attacks, or as a crusading grand inquisitor, or in all the other roles in which he has been cast given the absence of his own face and his own voice.Mueller appears to prefer to let his work do the talking for him. In that sense, he has spoken a great deal in the 12 months since his appointment by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, following President Trump’s decision to fire then-FBI Director James Comey.Mueller’s office has told a detailed story about a years-long campaign by the Russian government first to reconnoiter and then to attack the democracy of the United States. Thanks to Mueller, Americans know that Russian President Vladimir Putin dispatched his first intelligence officers as early as 2014 on a personal visit to cities around the country.And they know that before Trump’s inauguration, then-national security adviser Mike Flynn was in contact with Trump’s advisers as he urged Russia’s ambassador not to retaliate against the punitive measures that outgoing President Obama had imposed over Russia’s attack on the presidential election.There remain many things, however, that Americans don’t know about what took place between these two events or what has taken place since. One big question, after 365 days of Mueller, is: How much he can or will still reveal?The special counsel is not an avenging angel on a holy campaign to right the wrong that Democrats believe was the outcome of the 2016 presidential race. Nor is he a KGB commissar relentlessly hounding Trump out of personal animus on behalf of a conspiracy by the Deep State.Those myths have clung to Mueller in part because he has not defined himself, creating the opening for others to define him to serve their own ends.The latest example was in a tweet from Trump, who marked the anniversary of Mueller’s appointment by renewing his complaint that the whole special counsel investigation was baseless.Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History…and there is still No Collusion and No Obstruction. The only Collusion was that done by Democrats who were unable to win an Election despite the spending of far more money!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 17, 2018The underlying question of what Mueller and his office are actually doing is nearly impossible to answer from the outside. The public only sees what the special counsel and his team permit them to see, and then usually only through dry legal documents and courtroom statements.One year of investigating, prosecutions and plea agreements has provided a few clues.Mueller is running both the counterintelligence investigation he inherited from the FBI and a conventional criminal investigation.The distinction is important because the types of work are quite different and can lead to very different results. In a counterintelligence case, investigators may never make an arrest or file charges. Their goal is to study the relationship between a foreign intelligence service and a subject in the United States with whom it might have been corresponding.Instead of simply collaring an alleged spy, FBI special agents might try to turn him into a double agent, using their onetime target as a conduit to feed disinformation back to the foreign spy service or learn about what it knows. In the case of a foreign agent, the feds might simply ask the State Department to kick him out of the country.The origins of the investigation Mueller is now running were as a counterintelligence case, following the overtures from Russian agents to a junior Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos. He has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about that relationship and is cooperating with Mueller’s office.Other people, however, may never be pulled into the same kind of web if it makes more sense for Mueller, the FBI and the rest of the intelligence community to watch them from afar, or respond in ways other than public prosecutions. And the public may never know — of which more in a moment.So the counterintelligence approach can differ greatly from the better-known profile in which a team of G-Men and G-Women in blue windbreakers show up early to kick down a suspect’s door. Mueller’s unit includes that style of work, too, tied in with the first style.The second approach is what has characterized the prosecution of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who has not been accused of conspiring with Russia’s attack on the presidential election. Instead, prosecutors charge that Manafort violated banking and tax and other white collar-style laws. Manafort has pleaded not guilty and his attorney made clear early that the case was unconnected to any election interference.The guilty pleas secured in the year of the Mueller team are over similar white collar-style transgressions; the most substantive was that of Manafort’s former partner and Trump’s former campaign vice chairman, Rick Gates. Other pleas — from a previously unknown Dutch attorney and a little-discussed online payments broker in California — are for lying to the FBI.Mueller commands an eye-watering breadth and depth of information.Brenadan Smialowski/AFP/Getty ImagesThen- FBI Director Robert Mueller testifies during a hearing of the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Subcommittee on Capitol Hill May 16, 2013.The special counsel’s office has described in court documents when and how Manafort was making changes in a specific Microsoft Word document.It knew about the expense reports one of the Russian intelligence operatives filed about his travel to the United States.It had the text of a personal email from a woman who worked in the Russian social media agitation campaign, who pinged a family member to say she had to stay late because the FBI had discovered what she’d been up to: “We had a slight crisis here at work: the FBI busted our activity (not a joke).”Mueller appears to have the full foreign intelligence and surveillance powers of the United States at his disposal, via both the FBI and potentially the National Security Agency or other arms of the intelligence community. This certainly helps him and his investigators but it also certainly limits how much the special counsel’s office may be willing to discuss in the future about how it learned what it has learned. In fact, it may even complicate the work of investigators.Suppose the NSA intercepted Russian Official A telling Russian Official B something about U.S. Person C that is important to Mueller’s work — but the NSA doesn’t want to reveal that it can record the conversations between these targets because it wants to keep on recording them. Mueller’s team may need to try to establish the same fact in other ways, especially if it wants to introduce the fact as evidence in a criminal case.That may mean months of work to prove something Mueller already knows from another source. Or it may mean in some cases, Mueller can’t prosecute.No one knows what inning this is.The complexity of Mueller’s task makes it impossible to assess the special counsel’s work from the outside, even after one year.Read one way, the record thus far is encouraging for President Trump and his administration — no conspiracy charges tying campaign aides to Russian active measures even after all this time. That result, or lack thereof, followed what Trump and his aides call historic cooperation by the White House and his presidential campaign, including with human witnesses and more than one million documents. Vice President Mike Pence cited the one-year mark for Mueller’s work as a good opportunity for him and the special counsel’s office to “wrap it up.”Read another way, Trump and aides still could have a great deal to fear. Prosecutors in New York City, D.C. and Northern Virginia are putting Manafort and Trump’s longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, under enormous legal pressure — can they stand it, or might they turn state’s evidence? What evidence has been given by the people who are already cooperating?Big chunks of what is known and established about the 2016 attack on the election haven’t been addressed by the special counsel’s office, including the theft and dumping of emails that embarrassed Democratic political figures and institutions or the exploratory cyberattacks against state elections systems. Are there indictments in the works about those or other matters?Finally and most importantly there remains the unanswerable question about what the political consequences might be of wherever Mueller’s work leads. If he is nearly complete that is good news for the president and Republicans as they defend their majorities in the 2018 midterm elections and then Trump seeks a second term in 2020. If the special counsel has more up his sleeve, those assumptions might change — and as Americans have learned over the past year, only Mueller knows for sure.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Stay on target Toy Tuesday: The Schwiftiest ‘Rick & Morty’ ToysTop Movie and TV Trailers to Watch From SDCC 2019 While it’s not a deconstruction of childhood trauma like the season premiere, or a morality play on the importance of therapy and the consequences of avoidance like “Pickle Rick,” last night’s Rick and Morty was a refreshing twist on the series’s most basic formula. Rick drags an unsuspecting Smith (in this case Jerry, instead of Morty) out of bed for an intergalactic adventure. It wasn’t just a new take on Rick and Morty‘s format, though. ” The Whirly Dirly Conspiracy” gave each character a chance to show how they’ve grown since season one. And yes, that includes Jerry.Last week’s episode was all about how Morty has gotten too good at dealing with Rick’s antics. This week explored his effect on the rest of the family. For Jerry’s part, his exceptionally sad life is interrupted when Rick drags him off on a sci-fi adventure. It’s everything we love about Rick and Morty. Jerry is taken to a strange, high-concept sci-fi world. In this case, it’s a resort covered by an immortality field. The concept is then taken to its logical and hilarious extremes, as we see what people do when they can’t die. Children shoot each other, which as Jerry rightly points out, is still bad parenting.The assistant manager of the resort approaches Jerry with a plan to kill Rick. There’s a ride called the Whirly Dirly, which briefly leaves the immortality field. Jerry agrees, after being convinced that he’ll be able to get his family back if Rick isn’t in the picture. At this point, the episode is still getting going, and Jerry sucks as much as he ever has. This episode is all about getting Jerry to the point where he can grow. It’s about making him more than the eternal sad sack. Jerry backs out of the arrangement when Rick apologizes for getting him kicked out, and promises to put in a good word with Beth when they get back home. Unfortunately, by that point, it’s too late, and the ride has started.Jerry is surprisingly useful in this scene, helping Rick fight off his would-be assassins. As you’d expect though, his knowledge of where on the ride someone can be killed raises a red flag for Rick. The whole story comes out, and Rick is pissed. Oh, and in the process of fighting off the assassins, they break the immortality field and one of the kids shoots the other. See? Bad parenting. Even Jerry can be right sometimes. Also, this is probably the only show that can make child murder as funny as it is here.(Via Adult Swim)There’s some really interesting character work going on with Jerry here. Rick backs him into an alien snake-thing who starts to devour him alive. Rick let’s Jerry think he’s going to die, but really, Rick just needs a nervous living organism covered in snake juice. Why? To attract a monster they can ride to a spaceport. Here, Rick points out that Jerry is more than just a sad sack. His pathetic existence isn’t a weakness, it’s his strength. “You act like prey, but you’re a predator,” Rick says. Jerry uses his weak exterior to get people to feel sorry for him. That’s how he survives. That’s how he gets people to hire, have sex with and marry him. We also learn that Rick hates Jerry because of how his daughter’s life turned out. Beth is Rick’s daughter, and thanks to Jerry, all that potential is wasted. (Also, 20 cc’s of dream killer is a hilarious and disgusting way to describe teenage pregnancy.) It’s a new layer to Jerry and Rick’s relationship that hasn’t been explored yet. It’s also laying the groundwork for Jerry to become more than the put-upon boring dad. Jerry’s character finally has some depth to him. He still sucks, but there’s so much more the show can do with him now.The show also makes a smart decision to incapacitate Rick, forcing Jerry to at least try to act as a hero. At the spaceport, Rick is injected with a serum that prevents unstable thoughts. It also renders him completely stupid and useless. When the assistant manager of the resort shows up and tries to kill Rick, Jerry is forced to act. It doesn’t go well, but he accidentally destroys their ship’s wormhole shield. As the ship warps through space, Jerry, the manager, and Rick’s minds meld together in a trippy, beautifully-animated and highly disturbing sequence. Their minds live a thousand lifetimes, but their bodies only age a few minutes. This also allows Rick to regain his higher functions and shoot the assistant manager in the head. The result of all this: Jerry has now seen that he doesn’t have to be an eternal loser. He doesn’t have to play meek to get ahead in the world. By the end of the episode, he’s made a decision to change. It’s not going to happen right away. He still sucks at the end of all this, but he’s now capable of sucking less. That’s actually a pretty big deal.(via Adult Swim)That’s been the best part of this season of Rick and Morty, is seeing how much the characters have grown since season one. Summer, displaying traits of both her parents, tries to solve her problems by using one of Rick’s machines. After her boyfriend dumps her for someone else, she tries to make her breasts bigger, leading to a sequence of increasingly disturbing body horror. This is where Morty realizes that his mother is just like Rick. She’s stubborn and determined to be the hero even if it results in turning her daughter inside out. But the beauty of Rick and Morty is that these characters ultimately do care about each other, and solve their problems in loving, if unconventional ways. Beth turns herself inside out to comfort Summer, while Morty uses the machine to inflict some body horror on Summer’s ex. Morty’s quiet menace in his final scene is great, revealing a scary side we rarely see from him. This family is growing closer together in its own weird way. Now, Jerry has to figure out how to grow with them.(Via Adult Swim)This episode of Rick and Morty didn’t quite reach the highs that the rest of the season has so far, but it was still probably the best thing on TV last night. It took a classic Rick and Morty story structure and gave it a fun, new twist. The Rick and Jerry adventure turned out to be not only watchable, but necessary. Despite the season opening with Jerry getting kicked out of the house, the series isn’t entirely done with him yet. If he’s going to grow and change along with the rest of the family, the series needs us to like him. We’re not quite there yet, but we’re a lot closer than we were before this episode happened.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Former Costa Rican President Óscar Arias accepted an invitation from Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo López to observe the conflict in Venezuela. It seems unlikely, however, that the two will meet soon, asLópez recently turned himself in to Venezuelan authorities.Arias, the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize winner, has been one of the most vocal critics in the region of Venezuelan’s violent crackdown on anti-government protesters. Arias has said there has been a “negligent silence” from Latin America’s governments on what’s occurring in Venezuela.Three protesters have been killed so far. Last week, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced plans to arrest López on charges of homicide and inciting violence. Leftist governments in the region have backed Venezuela’s head of state. Supporters for Maduro also have taken part in the daily demonstrations. Other international political figures also have accepted López’s invitation, including former Chilean President Ricardo Lagos, former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso and former Spanish President Felipe González.Costa Rican officials also have repeatedly spoken out against the violence. President Laura Chinchilla said Tuesday, “We hope they can reach a peaceful solution because the Venezuelan people are suffering.”There also has been talk about giving asylum to Venezuelan opposition political leaders, a proposal endorsed by Costa Rica’s ruling party presidential candidate Johnny Araya.

Austria is looking to attract more individual travellers looking for authentic travel experiences, according to the Austrian National Tourist Office (ANTO), with the launch of its new marketing and social media campaign.Aiming to build on the 335,000 overnight visitors from Australia last year, the new promotion, ‘Austria. Moments of Bliss’, will showcase the destination’s 250 activities, diversions, meals, landmarks and tucked away secrets through targeted print advertising, online marketing, a new brochure as well as increased social media efforts.Additionally, available from early April, the campaign will be supported by a new iPad app, ‘iAustria’, which will provide travellers with an interactive planning tool to Austria. ANTO director in Austria Astrid Mulholland-Licht said the campaign sets itself apart from others through its “guidance to potential travelers” and hands-on experiences.According to the tourist bureau, overnight visitors from Australia increased by 11 percent in 2012 compared to the prior year, while major Australian tour operators have reported double-digit growth on bookings to Austria for the first six months of 2013.Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J.

February 20, 2013 390 Views Share Housing starts plunged 8.5 percent in January–the steepest drop in two years–to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 890,000, the “”Census Bureau and HUD””:http://www.census.gov/construction/nrc/pdf/newresconst_201301.pdf reported jointly Wednesday. [IMAGE]Applications for residential permits rose 1.8 percent to a rate of 925,000, the highest level since June 2008.Economists had expected start activity to drop to 914,000 in January from the initial report for December of 954,000 starts. Permits, according to the consensus forecast, were expected to increase to 920,000 from the original report of 903,000 in December.Data on both starts and permits for December were revised upward: Starts rose to 973,000, and permits rose to 909,000.Rebuilding efforts in the wake of Superstorm Sandy contributed to the increase in total starts in the Northeast for December. Census/HUD reported the annual rate for starts (both single- and multi-family) was 116,000, up from 68,000 in November. Starts in the Northeast fell to 75,000 in January, about the norm for the region.The decline in starts was led by a steep drop in multi-family activity, which fell 24.1 percent to 277,000–the steepest month-over-month decline since December 2011, when starts fell 28.6 percent in one month.Builders completed 724,000 residential units in January, an increase of 6.0 percent (41,000) from December. Single-family homes accounted for most of the increase: 37,000, the largest monthly gain since last April.As the “”Sandy effect”” wound down, builders also faced weather challenges in January. Those hurdles stretched into February, culminating in the storm dubbed “”Nemo”” that paralyzed the Northeast February 8-9. The storm will likely have an impact on the starts report for February. Despite the drop in the headline numbers for starts, the report showed continuing, steady strength for single-family activity, which improved a scant 0.8 percent over [COLUMN_BREAK]December. In the last 12 months, single-family starts averaged 542,000, up from 440,000 in the prior 12 months. Multi-family starts averaged 253,000 in the last 12 months, up from 178,000 in the prior 12 months. The trend data–a 42.1 percent increase for multi-family activity compared with a 23.2 percent increase for single-family starts– suggest a fundamental housing shift, which could have a longer-term impact on the housing and related mortgage finance sectors.The longer-term data for permits suggests the same shift. In the last 12 months, permit filings for multi-family units averaged 299,000, up almost 42 percent from 211,000 in the prior 12 months. Single-family permits averaged 522,000 in the last 12 months, an increase of 23 percent over the 423,000 average for the prior 12 months.””Builder confidence in January””:https://themreport.com/articles/builder-confidence-stalls-in-january-2013-01-16, as measured by the Housing Market Index compiled by the “”National Association of Home Builders””:http://www.nahb.org/, was flat to December, breaking a string of eight straight monthly increases. The index “”reported Tuesday””:https://themreport.com/articles/led-by-south-builder-confidence-slips-in-feb-2013-02-19 for February dropped for the first time since last April.According to the Census/HUD report, builders completed 565,000 single family homes in January, the strongest since June 2010, when builders rushed to complete work on homes so buyers could take advantage of the federal home buyer tax credit program. Completions, however, continue to far outpace new home sales. According to the latest Census-HUD report, the new home sales pace was 369,000 in December.Total starts rose in the South and West while falling in the Northeast and Midwest, improving 34,000 in the West to 237,000 and 19,000 in the South to 483,000 while dropping 95,000 in the Midwest to 95,000 and 41,000 in the Northeast to 75,000. Single-family starts rose 14,000 in the South to 331,000 and 6,000 in the West to 139,000 while dropping 10,000 in the Midwest to 93,000 and 5,000 in the Northeast to 50,000.Total permits rose 10,000 in the Northeast to 109,000; 5,000 in the South to 452,000; and 2,000 in the Midwest to 143,000. The West was the only region to see a decline in permits, slipping 1,000 to 221,000. Permits for single family homes rose 8,000 in the West to 133,000 and 6,000 in the South to 304, 000 but fell 2,000 in the Northeast to 46,000 and 1,000 in the Midwest to 101,000._Hear Mark Lieberman every Friday on P.O.T.U.S. radio, Sirius-XM 124, at 6:40 a.m. and again at 9:40 a.m. EST._ Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Census Bureau Home Sales Homebuilders Housing Permits Housing Starts Housing Supply HUD Investors Lenders & Servicers Mark Lieberman National Association of Home Builders Processing Residential Construction Service Providers 2013-02-20 Mark Lieberman in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Housing Starts Dive in January, Permits Rise to 4 1/2-Year High
