Hey big spender: UK court details woman’s $21M Harrods spree

LONDON — Court documents reveal that a woman suspected by British authorities of having ill-gotten wealth spent 600,000 pounds ($760,000) in one day at upmarket department store Harrods and once forked out 30,000 pounds on chocolates.Zamira Hajiyeva is the first person subject to an Unexplained Wealth Order, which allows British authorities to seize assets from people suspected of corruption or organized crime links.Investigators say Hajiyeva spent 16 million pounds at Harrods between 2006 and 2016, using 35 credit cards issued by a bank led by her husband.Court documents released Tuesday detail spending including 5.75 million pounds at jewelers Boucheron and Cartier, 1 million pounds in Harrods’ toy department and 30,000 pounds at chocolatier Godiva.Hajiyeva has been granted permission to challenge the order at the Court of Appeal.The Associated Press read more

Ship with Sri Lankans on board briefly held in Cyprus

A ship an anti-migrant group planned to use as part of its campaign to protect Europe from mass migration was detained in Cyprus and then turned away with its crew, after discrepancies emerged in the status of a group of Sri Lankans on board, the Reuters news agency reported.Members of the Identarian movement, which says it wants to protect Europe’s identity from mass immigration, last week said they had chartered the C-Star which would set sail towards the Libyan coast to monitor humanitarian operations there. Its crew was later deported on board the vessel, Turkish Cypriot human rights activist Murat Kanatli said. Turkish Cypriot authorities were not immediately available for comment. The Identarian movement, which calls its project ‘Defend Europe’, disputed that version of accounts. But the vessel was impounded en route to Italy in Cyprus, because of conflicting accounts of whether Sri Lankans were trainees or migrants, several Turkish Cypriot sources said. It said NGOs had approached the trainees and ‘offered them to stay in Europe and apply for asylum, in exchange for promises and money’.“Fifteen apprentices refused, five accepted this act of bribery and are now making false accusations against the owner of the ship,” it said in a statement.The trainees were supposed to disembark in Egypt, but it was ‘ultimately impossible’, it said, without stating the reason. Five Sri Lankans on board have since sought asylum, human rights activists said. They were granted a 10-day visa, Kanatli added.At the port of Famagusta, Turkish Cypriot authorities were told that the 20 Sri Lankans had ended their training period and would be returning to Sri Lanka via Ercan airport in northern Cyprus. But Faika Deniz Pasha, an associate of the Refugee Rights Association in Northern Cyprus told Reuters, that at the airport the Sri Lankans said they had paid money to be taken to Italy.“They said they were not seamen and had paid something like 10,000 euros,” she said.Fifteen of them had left, but five said they did not wish to return to Sri Lanka and had asked for asylum, said Pasha, who said she was present at some of the encounters. The Identarian movement is tapping into growing unease, particularly in Italy, over immigration from North Africa.Cyprus, an island about 100 km (60 miles) at its closest point from war-ravaged Syria, has barely been affected by the hundreds of thousands on the move over the past three years.

Caterpillar Global Mining – readying for the global upturn

first_imgAl Frese, Solutions and Product Support Manager of Caterpillar’s Global Mining Division notes that the company is “seeing encouraging signs that a recovery may be underway” and at the same time continues to stress sustainability. He says Global Mining is “seeing benefits from things Caterpillar put in place” since the credit crunch hit the world. He went on to say that “though there’s still a great deal of economic uncertainty in the world, mined materials will remain essential to support a growing global population.” Cat is very focused on being ready for the upturn. “We have realigned our entire company, creating a simpler, more efficient, more customer-focused and more market-driven structure. We’re getting our processes ready for the up-cycle too, starting in our factories, where we’re continuing to deploy the Caterpillar Production System (CPS).“To make sure we’re ready for the upturn, we’ve teamed up with a group of mining companies and dealers to fine-tune our forecasting processes and systems.” Some of the information coming from those mining companies has given insights into future parts requirements. The company has also been working with its suppliers to cut manufacturing costs. CPS has also delivered tremendous safety benefits in Cat’s plants.As an example of CPS achievements, the Track Type Tractor manufacturing facility has achieved a $20 million reduction in inventory, a 90% improvement in delivery times, a 75% reduction in work on process inventory and a 24% improvement in early operating hours (new machines) reliability. Mark Twain, who did not work for Global Mining, may have said “there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics,” but these are significant statistics by anybody’s standards.Frese explained that “Global Mining has a dedicated team that works with miners and dealers on a variety of continuous improvement projects. We’ve continued to fund this vital work through the downturn.” He went on to elaborate that the focus in 2009 has been on efficiency at the mines, rather than the all out demand for productivity that it had been up to the crash of the boom late last year.Technology and machine development has not suffered during the downturn. “We’re continuing to fund research and development at a very aggressive level. In fact, 2009 will go down in history as the 2nd largest year ever for R&D investment.” That investment is for all Cat products but the mining component was very significant and included the largest investment seen in the truck fleet. “We’re actively working with our customers to design and integrate significant safety enhancements across our entire mining product line,” Frese continued.In the latter regard, Frese noted Cat’s work with the Earth Moving Equipment Safety Round Table (EMESRT), which was formed in 2006 to establish a process of engagement between mining customers and OEMs. The process is designed to accelerate the development and adoption of leading practice designs of earth moving equipment to minimise health and safety risks. (http://www.mishc.uq.edu.au/index.html?page=58384).Looking forward, Frese says the key drivers to 2012 are:Commodity demand growth to resume in 2010Commodity price outlook favourable for investmentUnder investment in mine capacity in 2009 and 2010Average fleet age remains high.On the latter point, he also notes that the equipment replacement cycle was not completed during the last upturn. IM has already put forward the opinion that the next upturn (boom) will most likely see even worse equipment and skill shortages than were seen in 2007/2008. But it seems Caterpillar at least is focused for the future.last_img read more

Des empreintes de dinosaures de 120 millions dannées découvertes en Arkansas

first_imgDes empreintes de dinosaures de 120 millions d’années découvertes en ArkansasRécemment en Arkansas aux Etats-Unis, un promeneur a découvert des empreintes de pas laissées au Crétacé par plusieurs espèces de dinosaures. Aujourd’hui, celles-ci permettent aux scientifiques, qui les ont scannées numériquement, d’étudier l’anatomie et la locomotion de ces animaux.S’étendant sur une longueur équivalente à celle de deux terrains de football, des empreintes de pas fossilisées ont été découvertes tout à fait par hasard par un Américain lors d’une promenade en Arkansas. Et ce ne sont pas n’importe quelles empreintes. Celles-ci témoignent de la fréquentation, il y a 120 millions d’années, de cette région (boueuse, à l’époque) par de nombreuses espèces de dinosaures végétariens, des sauropodes à long cou, et de dinosaures carnivores tels que des théropodes bipèdes. À lire aussiCette vidéo retrace l’évolution de nos ancêtres en moins de 2 minutesParmi ces derniers, l’Acrocanthosaurus (8 tonnes), était probablement attiré sur le site par la présence de ses proies, les grands herbivores, d’après les travaux des scientifiques. Mais “qui sait ce que les sauropodes étaient venus faire là ?”, commente Stephen Boss, spécialiste en géosciences à l’Université de l’Arkansas à Fayetteville. Probablement mises au jour à la suite d’un orage balayant les couches superficielles du sol, ces empreintes constituent une ‘pièce rare’ pour cette région du sud des États-Unis. Habituellement, c’est plutôt dans l’ouest, dans le Colorado ou l’Utah que sont dénichées ces anciennes traces. Par ailleurs, Stephen Boss et son équipe ont aussi scanné numériquement les empreintes grâce à un laser à haute résolution dans le but de mieux les étudier et éventuellement de permettre à d’autres chercheurs de les analyser. Ils ont ainsi pu observer que l’Acrocanthosaurus, avec ses traces de 60 centimètres de long à trois doigts, n’avait pas les ‘pieds’ palmés, mais en revanche tournés vers l’intérieur, “un peu comme un pigeon” – une découverte qui n’aurait pas été possible à partir des ossements.Le 11 octobre 2011 à 19:46 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Apple pushed to 4th place in China Oppo Huawei and Vivo grab

first_imgApple has been pushed to the fourth place in the Chinese smartphone market as 2016 marked the first time ever that Apple saw a year-over-year (YoY) decline in the PRC market. Apple’s reign ended: Google takes over as the world’s most valuable brandFor the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016, Apple’s market share declined to 11 per cent from 15 per cent in the fourth quarter of calendar-year 2015. For full-year 2016, the tech titan’s saw its share fall to 9.6 per cent from 13.6 per cent in 2015 amid competition from local manufacturers such as Huawei, Oppo and Vivo, according to a new report trends-tracker IDC. As Apple’s share of the Chinese market declined, the top three Chinese manufacturers all gained share over the same period. For the full-year 2016, Oppo’s share increased to 16.8 per cent from 8.2 per cent in 2015; while Huawei’s share increased to 16.4 per cent from 14.6 per cent a year ago, and Vivo’s jumped to 14.8 per cent from 8.2 per cent last year.  “Increased dependence on mobile apps has led to consumers to seek phone upgrades, thus helping drive the large growth in 2016Q4. In lower-tiered cities, there was a similar demand by consumers, which OPPO and Vivo met by aggressively pushing mid-range smartphones in these cities,” Tay X iaohan, senior market analyst at IDC, said. With the slowdown in the growth of the online channel in China last year, most brands are now using a combination of channels to increase their shipments. Xiaomi, which previously focused on online channels, has now opened more Mi Home stores to drive offline growth. Apple has also been aggressive in increasing its offline retail presence. For 2017, market research firm IDC expects top Chinese vendors to increase their shipments in the international market, with India as a key target. Last week, even though Apple reported stronger-than-expected iPhone sales globally, it said Greater China remained the only geographic where its revenue declined. According to the latest IDC Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, the smartphone market in China witnessed a 19 per cent YoY growth and 17 per cent quarter-over-quarter (QoQ) growth in Q42016. The market share of the top four Chinese vendors in the top five smartphone vendors in the country grew to 57 per cent in 2016 from 46 per cent in 2015. last_img read more

Oculus told Rift users in an email about the changes Monday, and confirmed the move in a comment sent to Variety.“Over the years, we’ve seen how people use VR for everything from gaming to movies, and it’s become clear that while people love to stream immersive media on other devices, Rift is used primarily for gaming,” Oculus said in its email to customers.  “These insights inform how we support new and existing features and apps across the platform.”The movie store on Rift is shutting down Monday. Consumers who have purchased or rented movies in the past will continue to have access to them until November 20. “After this date, you will no longer be able to access any purchased or rented movies through Oculus Video, but you can continue to watch video and streams from other sources, such as Facebook 360,” the company said in its email.center_img The decision to shut down the movie store likely has to do with the fact that not many Rift owners were renting movies on the device. Oculus decided to keep VOD rentals and purchases up and running on the Oculus Go headset, which is more about media consumption than hardcore VR gaming.The move also coincides with an announcement by former Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe about his departure from Facebook. While seemingly unrelated, there still seems to be a common thread connecting those two. Techcrunch reported Monday morning that Iribe’s departure was prompted by a realignment of Facebook’s VR efforts, with the company doubling down on standalone devices like the Go and the upcoming Oculus Quest.This reportedly also included the cancellation of plans for an upcoming second-generation Rift headset. However, a company spokesperson since told Variety that the company is committed to a future version of the Rift.last_img read more

Haggling likely as exit poll in UK vote shows Tories strong

first_imgThe final opinion polls, and the exit poll, predict a “hung Parliament,” in which no party has an absolute majority, triggering a period of wrangling and uncertainty.___WHAT HAPPENS NOW?If no one has a majority, the parties start talking, to see if formal or informal alliances can help them reach the magic number of seats they need to govern.In Britain’s parliamentary system, the test of a government is whether it can secure the backing of a majority in the House of Commons to pass its budgets and laws.In theory, that takes 326 seats, but in practice it’s about 323: the Speaker does not vote, and Irish nationalists Sinn Fein, who had five seats before the election, do not participate. If the Conservatives are as close as the exit poll suggests, the party would have several avenues open.There is no rule saying the party with the most seats gets the first shot at talking to other parties about forming a government, but there will be unofficial pressure for that to happen. Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, who served as deputy prime minister in Cameron’s first coalition government, says he will speak first to the biggest party, which appears likely to be the Conservatives. Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober “I’ve described it like freestyle wrestling,” said Peter Riddell of the Institute for Government. “Anyone can talk to anyone else, and it may well be that the second-largest party is in easier position to form a government than the largest party.”As head of state, Queen Elizabeth II formally appoints the prime minister, but her role is symbolic. Once the political picture is clear, current Prime Minister David Cameron will go to Buckingham Palace — either to tell her he can form a government, or to resign and ask her to summon Labour leader Ed Miliband.If the exit poll result is accurate, Cameron could be expected to muster enough support from other parties to form a government.___HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?In 2010, it took five days for the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats to forge a coalition. Gus O’Donnell, who as Britain’s top civil servant oversaw those negotiations, said that “was a piece of cake compared to what might happen this time.”“More options, more parties involved … it is harder this time,” he told the BBC.Parliament is due to reconvene on May 18, when lawmakers will take their oaths and one will be elected Speaker. That could all happen without a government being in place. A member of the public walks past a betting shop window with a display for the General Election in Govan, Scotland, Wednesday, May 6, 2015. Britain goes to the polls in a General Election Thursday. (AP Photo/Scott Heppell) –Lib-Lab Pact: Labour could try to form a coalition with the Liberal Democrats, who are sympathetic to them on some issues. Such an alliance could probably command support from small left-leaning parties including Wales’ Plaid Cymru and the Greens. For this prospect to take hold, Labour would have to perform far better than the exit poll indicates.–Labour and the SNP: This potential combination is politically fraught. The SNP, which is expected to take most of the seats in Scotland, supports Scottish independence, and its participation in national government has been painted by opponents as a threat to the future of Britain. Labour leader Ed Miliband has ruled out a coalition pact or broad deal with the SNP. But he also knows that the nationalists, who are staunch anti-Conservatives, would back Labour on key votes.___Follow Jill Lawless on Twitter at http://Twitter.com/JillLawlessCopyright © The Associated Press.

That is an annual address, delivered by the monarch but written by ministers, outlining the government’s legislative program. It is followed by a debate and a vote — and it would be hard for a government to survive losing that vote.___IN THE MEANTIME, WHO’S IN CHARGE?Win or lose, on Friday morning Cameron will remain Britain’s prime minister. The current leader and his government will remain in place until a new one is assembled. Ministers are expected to defer major decisions, but handle routine business and emergencies. The national security apparatus remains in place.Financial markets hate instability, so some fear the pound could take a pummeling if the talks drag on.“There will be a strong civil service presence saying: ‘Do you look at the markets? You had better get a grip. You’d better work something out,’” said Leeds University political scientist David Seawright.Other analysts believe the markets have already factored in a period of uncertainty so are unlikely to be too volatile.Riddell points out that protracted negotiations, while novel for Britain, are the norm in many European countries. Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement He said, “we won’t be like Belgium,” which went without a government for more than a year.“The general view is, keep calm and it will work itself out.”___WHAT ARE THE LIKELY OUTCOMES?“It’s unbelievable, the permutations,” said Seawright. “It’ll be musical chairs to see who can form a government.”Some of the potential options:–The Coalition Continues: Britain could see a continuation of the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition that has governed since 2010. The Lib Dems are open to this option, and have campaigned as the sensible center ground between Tories on the right and Labour on the left. But the party is likely to lose a big chunk of its 59 seats. Still, a Conservative-Lib Dem coalition could probably rely for support on key votes from smaller parties including Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionists and the U.K. Independence Party. The exit poll showing suggests this possibility will be high on the list of possible outcomes.–Minority government: Either Labour or the Conservatives — whichever has more seats — could try to govern alone, relying on smaller parties for support on a vote-by-vote basis. Minority governments are often unstable, and sometimes fall within months. But Britain’s political parties, with their members exhausted and coffers depleted, may be unwilling to trigger a second election this year. And recent legal changes have made it harder to bring down a government. Once, defeat on a major piece of legislation would have done it, but it now requires an explicit vote of no-confidence by lawmakers. If the Conservatives are close to a majority, as the exit poll suggests, they could pursue this option. LONDON (AP) — Counting the votes in Britain’s election will take a matter of hours.Assembling a government is likely to take far longer, even though an exit poll released late Thursday suggested Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party was doing better than expectedThe poll predicts Cameron’s party will win 316 seats, short of an outright majority, but close to the magic number.By Friday, the country will know how many seats each party has won in the House of Commons. If either the Conservatives or Labour has more than half the 650 seats, they can quickly form a government — but that doesn’t seem likely.
