ScienceShot: Graveyard of Iceballs Past

first_imgThe asteroid belt has long been thought a dull place. But in recent years, astronomers have spotted objects that occasionally spew small amounts of water vapor or dust—possibly because they’ve recently collided with something else. Now, scientists propose that most if not all of these objects may be shedding dust or water vapor because they’re the barely active remnants of comets that are now largely bereft of surface ice. These objects—a total of 11 bodies, which the researchers dub asteroidal belt comets (ABCs)—are either close to the end of cometary life as we know it, or they’ve recently been reactivated because gravitational perturbations of Jupiter (large planet located outside the asteroid belt in each image) have nudged the bodies into orbits that now pass closer to the sun. Along parts of those new paths, heat can penetrate more deeply and reach ice previously insulated by a surface layer of dust (yielding a solar system that today looks like the artist’s representation at top). On average, the surface layers of dust on those objects average at least 1.8 meters thick, the researchers report in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. But in the solar system’s early days, before surface ice evaporated from those bodies, comets were both more numerous and more active (bottom), the researchers contend. If that’s true, nighttime skies of the distant past must have been spectacular indeed.last_img read more

Juventus ‘perhaps’ UCL favourites says Bernardeschi

first_imgJuventus have assembled a squad worthy of being considered Champions League favourites, according to attacking midfielder Federico Bernardeschi.The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, the competition’s all-time leading scorer, has boosted the Bianconeri’s hopes of lifting the trophy for the first time since 1996, after two final defeats in the last five years.Superstar forward Ronaldo was instrumental to Juve’s exit in each of the previous two campaigns, scoring twice for Real Madrid in the 2017 final and then converting a controversial late penalty in last season’s quarter-finals. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Massimiliano Allegri’s men must first survive a tough group containing Manchester United, Valencia and Young Boys if they are to deliver on Bernardeschi’s confidence, but the Italy forward is adamant he and his team-mates can go all the way.”I feel this year we have a strong, complete squad with great players,” the 24-year-old told Sky Sport Italy.”We are perhaps the favourite to win the Champions League, even if it will not be easy because it remains a very special competition and things can change at any moment.”It will be a great challenge. We feel strong enough to do the best we can, but obviously we have to prove it on the field.”Bernardeschi has started two of Juve’s three successive victories this Serie A season, scoring in the 3-2 win at Chievo on the opening weekend.Meanwhile, Ronaldo has yet to find the back of the net for his new club, but it is surely just a matter of time before the Portuguese maestro makes his mark on Italian football.He will get his next chance when the Old Lady continue their 2018-19 domestic campaign on Sunday against Sassuolo at the Allianz Stadium.last_img read more

Cyprus problem requires a local solution to succeed UN envoy stresses

No plan to resolve the Cyprus problem will be successful in the long run unless it is a local one in which every person in both communities feels their voice has been heard and they understand the ramifications of what is proposed, the head of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) said today.Michael Møller, who is also the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Cyprus, called on Cypriots to step up, engage in dialogue and “bring home new ideas and inspiration for action” as part of the debate over the Mediterranean island’s future.Michael Møller, who is also the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Cyprus, called on Cypriots to step up, engage in dialogue and “bring home new ideas and inspiration for action” as part of the debate over the Mediterranean island’s future.Speaking at the International Civil Society Fair, held in Nicosia, Mr. Møller noted that an inter-communal survey released last week by UNFICYP found that both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots supported the creation of more contacts between the two communities, but were also wary of any non-Cypriot attempts in this area that could be perceived as interfering or meddling, instead of assisting or facilitating.“Understanding and peace is best achieved by those who already know each other,” Mr. Møller said. “It is seldom sustainable if imposed by outsiders. And the population of this island instinctively understands this.”He therefore called on Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots to become part of a more active and less passive civil society that can offer grassroots ideas about solutions that might then have more chance of success in the longer-term.“I am convinced that no solution to the problem of Cyprus will be sustainable or take sufficiently strong root unless every Cypriot has the conviction that he or she truly understands all its components and ramifications and, more importantly, feels that their voice has been heard and that they have had a say in shaping that solution. The Cyprus problem must have a Cypriot solution.” 3 May 2007No plan to resolve the Cyprus problem will be successful in the long run unless it is a local one in which every person in both communities feels their voice has been heard and they understand the ramifications of what is proposed, the head of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) said today. read more

US wholesale inventories rise 03 per cent in June

Sales increased for a fourth consecutive month, climbing 1.9 per cent in June after advancing 0.7 per cent in May. Still, sales levels have dropped 0.4 from a year ago due to declines in prior months.Since late last year, businesses have been slowing the rebuilding of their stockpiles in the face of weaker domestic sales and a fall in export sales. The slowdown in inventory restocking dampened overall economic growth, but many economists believe inventories will enhance growth in the second half of 2016. read more

Equity markets open to minings junior and mid caps provided they deliver

first_imgAustralia’s junior and mid cap explorers and miners have been encouraged to be more realistic and transparent about their cost structures if they are to attract new investors and new investment within the current challenging capital markets for this spectrum of the domestic equities market. Addressing the first day of the two day Paydirt 2013 South Australian Resources and Energy Investment Conference at the Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Equity Partners Senior Analyst, Rohin Muller, said it was critical that players in this spectrum had a strict and sustained focus on managing their capital and operating costs.Muller said: “There is investment willingness out there but the equities market wants to see juniors and the mid tiers focus on low costs and high margins and if they deliver on that, they will be viewed favourably in this current market cycle. They also need a survival strategy that embraces focusing on those projects the maximise the opportunity to enter production, maintain their exploration activity – and they will maximise their funds availability for that if they focus on better managing costs – and build relationships with a broader range of potential capital providers.”“It is critical in this capital environment for juniors to keep as many funding options open as possible but parallel that with examining and demonstrate ways of reducing upfront expenditure. Equity markets are open to a sound argument but juniors have to be cleverer about how they access what is open to them.” Muller continued “While exploration companies tend to be reliant on private or public equity, access to a greater range of funding instruments can arise as explorers make the transition to producer – and the players in this segment need to give greater consideration to wider financing solutions such as convertible bonds, prepayments, offtake agreements, high yield bonds, project financing, and corporate loans, but along with costs, survival will also require a strict adherence to project execution.”Rohin Muller told delegates at Paydirt 2013 that Adelaide Equity did not see the current global or domestic market scenario as a disaster: “It is not doom and gloom but some explorers obviously are finding it more difficult than others to sustain their business because of the current state of the markets. As metal and mining/small resource stocks have subsequently underperformed against declining commodity prices, investors have moved out of that market into more conservative investment areas in search of yield. In that environment, resources companies have tended of late to focus on their Tier 1 assets and that actually creates opportunities for mid tiers and juniors but they need to be prepared to move faster and be acquisitive as expect value seekers to start buying back into the small resources sector when they recognise this upside.”last_img read more

UKBased Future Acquires Purch for 1325 Million

first_imgFuture plc has reached an agreement to acquire U.S.-based rival Purch’s consumer-facing brands, as well as its RAMP ad tech platform, for $132.5 million (£102 million), significantly expanding the London-based technology publisher’s already growing North American footprint.Under the terms of the deal, expected to close in August, assets including Tom’s Guide, Tom’s Hardware, Live Science and, among other digital media brands—as well as Purch’s multimillion-dollar ad tech licensing business—will join Future’s U.S. portfolio, alongside consumer-facing brands such as PC Gamer and MacLife, and NewBay Media, which Future acquired in April for $13.8 million.“The two businesses share similar cultures,” said Future CEO Zillah Byng-Thorne in a statement. “We both share our audiences’ passion, we’re data-driven, ambitious, and both have an innovative mindset. From day one, Future will be number-one in the U.S. consumer technology sector, and beyond this we see clear opportunities for combined growth.” Not included in the sale to Future U.S. is Purch’s small business-focused b2b unit, a portfolio whose properties include and Business News Daily as well as the online platform BuyerZone. That unit, which itself has expanded substantially in recent years under SVP and GM Aaron Bailey, will be rebranded as after the acquisition closes.“Our focus on content and commerce and the development of proprietary monetization technology enabled us to build a diversified and profitable business, while avoiding the challenges of ad-dependent publishing models,” added Purch CEO Greg Mason, who told Chief Executive magazine last month that Purch now does $130 million in annual revenue, up from $25 million six years ago. “We are joining forces with a like-minded publisher with strong complementary assets.”Citing the ongoing sale process, the two parties declined to provide additional details about the agreement or any future plans for Purch’s consumer division moving forward under Future.last_img read more

Capcom release Resident Evil 15th Anniversary trailer

first_imgIt’s hard to believe, but it has been 15 years since Capcom first released a game carrying the Resident Evil name. In that time period we’ve seen 32 games released in the series across platforms including the PlayStation, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, GameCube, PC, PSP, DS, 3DS, Nintendo 64, iOS, Saturn, Dreamcast and other mobile platforms.If you were there from the start, your first experience may still be your best when Resident Evil appeared for the PlayStation in 1996, although in Japan it was called Biohazard. Since then the series has had its ups and downs, but managed to reinvigorate itself when the fantastic Resident Evil 4 appeared on the GameCube and then got ported multiple times.According to the trailer, Capcom is only just getting started, and we can expect many more Resident Evil games in the future. This claim is backed up by multiple references to new games, or at the very least remakes of some classics, in the same trailer.The games highlighted as future releases include:Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D – Summer 2011 (3DS)Resident Evil Code: Veronica HD – Fall 2011 (PSN & XBL)Resident Evil 4 HD – Fall 2011 (PSN & XBL)Resident Evil: Revelations – TBA (3DS)Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – 2011 (PS3, 360, PC)If you’re a long-time fan of the series then the HD remakes may be welcomed, but I thought we’d seen the last remake of Resident Evil 4 when it appeared on the PS2. Thankfully there are some new games in development, though, and hopefully they come up to the standard set by 4 and 5. I’m also intrigued to see how the game transfers over to 3D on the 3DS.via Capcom-Unity.comlast_img read more

Quiet wind turbine could provide up to 30 of a homes power

Citation: Quiet wind turbine could provide up to 30% of a home’s power (2008, October 31) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Originally designed by Scotland-based Renewable Devices, the Swift wind turbine is being sold in the US by Cascade Engineering of Grand Rapids, Mich.Unlike many existing small wind turbines, the Swift turbine is designed to reduce noise. At seven feet in diameter, it consists of five thin blades encircled by a ring. The ring reduces vibration and diffuses the noise to a level of less than 35 decibels. Cascade says that the wind turbine should be positioned at least two feet above the roof line in locations with average wind. Its two fins direct the turbine to face the wind, with the ability to turn 360 degrees. The blades power a generator, which produces about 1.5 kilowatts with a 14-mph wind. Over a year, the turbine can generate about 2,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity, which is a significant percentage of the 6,500 to 10,000 kilowatt-hours per year that US households typically consume (estimates are from the US Energy Information Administration).While the installation cost run at around $10,000, state rebates and tax credits could help lower the upfront cost; for example, a renewable energy tax credit gives consumers $1,000 back for residential systems and $4,000 for commercial buildings. Depending on these incentives and performance levels, Cascade estimates that the upfront cost could be made up in as little as three years.So far, Cascade has installed nine Swift turbines in the US and has a backlog of 25 orders. Orders come from about half residential and half commercial customers. In Scotland, Swift turbines have been installed at 250 sites. More information: www.swiftwindturbine.comvia: CNet News ( — A quiet wind turbine developed in Scotland is now available in the US and Canada. Its developers say that the roof-based turbine can provide significant power for homes and commercial buildings alike. last_img read more

What You Can Learn About Social Media from Big Bird

first_img They say that you learn everything you ever needed to know in kindergarten. As far as a social media strategy for your business, that may very well be true.In the first presidential debate on Wednesday night in Denver, President Barack Obama and former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney faced off over a slew of domestic policy issues, including the growing deficit, taxes and small businesses. When Romney was asked about what he would do to decrease the federal deficit, one of the programs he said he would stop funding was Public Broadcasting Service. One of PBS’s most popular shows is Sesame Street, on which the 8-foot-tall yellow bird is a star.

I’m going to stop other things. I like PBS. I love Big Bird. I actually like you, too. But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for it. That’s number one,” said Romney.Related: LinkedIn Gives Company Pages a FaceliftAlmost instantaneously, Big Bird became a social media sensation. Twitter handles were created — @FiredBigBird and @BigBirdRomney — among others. The debate was the most tweeted political event in history, according to Twitter’s political branch, with 10.3 million Tweets in 90 minutes. Every minute, there were 17,000 tweets for “Big Bird” and 10,000 tweets per minute for “PBS,” Twitter’s political communications arm tweeted.Even President Obama’s administration got in on the action.

Emotional is best. The reason that everyone got so up in arms about Big Bird, during a presidential debate chock full of economic policy no less, is because people care about Big Bird. “It is something that is dear for people,” says Silvina Moschini, the CEO of Intuic, a social media agency that consults the likes of Twitter, Google and MasterCard. People remember Big Bird from their childhood, or they know that their own children are fans of Big Bird. “Touch the heart and it will become viral,” says Moschini.2. Make it visual. Big Bird is more than 8 feet tall and bright yellow. He’s hard to miss. “In social media, everything is about having a visual story to tell,” says Moschini. Not only does it grab people’s attention, but it also gives users something to be creative with. “There were images of Big Bird served on a Thanksgiving dish and Big Bird waiting on an employment line,” says Moschini.

AP IMPACT Syria rebels divided at times violent

first_img Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Associated PressSARJEH, Syria (AP) – Rebel commander Ahmed Eissa al-Sheikh keeps a paper on his desk bearing the names of the dead from his brigade. The first 16 are neatly typed below a Quranic verse extolling martyrdom. The next 14 are handwritten and crammed into the margin, because the paper is full.Al-Sheikh, an Islamist with a long black beard and gray fatigues, runs the Falcons of Damascus group from the mayor’s office in his village, which his fighters have taken over. The list is a constant reminder of al-Sheikh’s personal score with the Syrian regime: 20 of the dead are his relatives, including three brothers and his 16-year-old son, all killed fighting Syrian forces in the last year. ___Al-Sheikh is one face of the rebel movement in Syria. There are many more.During two weeks in northern Syria, three Associated Press journalists counted more than 20 rebel groups, with anywhere from fewer than 100 to more than 1,000 fighters each. They go by names like the Idlib Martyrs Brigade and the Shield of the Revolution, and while all share a deep hatred of President Bashar Assad’s regime, their unity stops there.Simply put, no one is in charge.This comes at a time when efforts to end 15 months of strife in Syria are collapsing, and the rebel movement has taken the lead in the struggle against Assad. Some countries have talked of boosting the rebels’ capabilities against the regime, and U.S. officials have told the AP that U.S. operatives are sifting among the rebel groups to determine which should receive arms from other Arab nations.Rebel coordination rarely extends beyond neighboring towns and villages and never to the provincial or national level. Many rebels don’t even know the commanders in towns two hours away.While the regime has been brutal, so have some of the rebels _ another cause of concern for the West.Opposition activists filter most information about the rebels sent outside the country, making it hard to get an accurate picture. But several groups said they had sent captured soldiers “to Cyprus,” which the rebels use as a euphemism for execution usually by gunfire. Top Stories Comments   Share   “If I go to the beach, I don’t want an Alawite to call me a dog and I can’t respond,” said Ahmed Salim, 27, who left the police for the rebels in October. “I don’t want to be treated like an animal. I want to be treated like a human.”Most fighters said they did not target other sects, only those who had fought for the regime.There was little evidence of rebel attacks on civilians, but they were often merciless with regime troops. For most, the fight to topple Assad has become personal after they have been chased from their cities, their friends and relatives killed. Many frequently flip through “martyr” photos on their cellphones for inspiration.One night at al-Sheikh’s headquarters in Sarjeh, a group of fighters flipped through brigade photos on a laptop.“Martyr, martyr, martyr, martyr, martyr,” they said, pointing out those who had died fighting.Videos of the group’s attacks showed roadside bombs destroying tanks and flipping over army buses, as Islamic chanting played in the background. In one video, a booby-trapped van sped toward a checkpoint and blew up, splattering two soldiers into nearby trees. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Early this month, when a military convoy arrived to quash the city’s opposition, rebel fighters blew up tanks and armored cars in a hail of gunfire and grenades and stormed the army position downtown.Weeks later, battle scars remain. Three destroyed tanks sit in the main boulevard, their tops blown off like bottle caps. The former army post is charred black, and walls of nearby buildings are pockmarked with bullet holes.Graffiti on one wall reads, in English, “The people wants SOS.” Elsewhere: “We bow only for God.”But the rebel victory was limited. Some stores have reopened and shoppers have returned to downtown, but a ring of army checkpoints restricts movement in and out, forcing many residents to sneak out on foot. Military helicopters and snipers still target the city, wounding more people every week.The city’s rebel commander, Jamal Akta, who ran a unisex barber shop before the uprising, said the battle had killed 10 civilians and no rebels. While proud of the fight, he said his men could do no more.“If we get more weapons, we can get rid of all the checkpoints,” he said. “But the ammunition we have now is enough to defend the city, no more than that.” One group said it had killed two brothers caught collaborating with the regime _ one during interrogation, the other by firing squad.Rebels have scored small victories against regime forces throughout Syria’s northern Idlib province. Armed with bought, looted or homemade weapons, they have destroyed government army posts and littered main highways with charred army vehicles.In the countryside, they roam freely in much more territory than was previously known, their bearded, camouflaged gunmen on motorcycles zipping through strings of towns and villages with no remaining police or security presence. Children often hail the fighters with V-for-victory signs and calls of “May God protect you!”But Syria’s army retains a chokehold on many large towns and cities with tanks, attack helicopters and heavy artillery, weapons that the rebels’ current arms can’t challenge.Indeed, more than two dozen rebel commanders, fighters and activists said that without better arms they can do no more than chip away at the regime _ a recipe for a long, deadly insurgency.“If we get military aid, the end will come quickly,” said Ahmed Abdel-Qader, a rebel coordinator in the village of Koreen. “If not, we have no idea how this will end. We are here. We’re not going back. God will decide the rest.” Even groups associated with the Free Syrian Army, which claims to represent the armed opposition, bemoan the failure of its Turkey-based leadership to deliver aid. While they wait, most rely on guerrilla tactics.One afternoon, 50 fighters in a vast olive grove crawled under barbed wire, leaped over oil drums and dove through flaming hoops in training for future attacks. Most were in their 20s and 30s and had fled the provincial capital of Idlib when the army seized it in March. Their rifles can’t match the tanks guarding the city, and they can’t afford better weapons.Commander Maan Dahnin said a Kalashnikov rifle now costs $1,500 and bullets are $4 each. That’s why when they lined up for target practice, most fighters fired only a few times.Some weapons come from neighboring Iraq, though many are duds, and some from Turkey, he said. The best come from corrupt officers in the Syrian army itself.“There are those who worry that the regime is going to fall, so they want to fill their pockets first,” Dahnin said.For now, his group’s 1,000 men never gather in one place, so that if they are shelled or come under fire, not everyone will die. Meanwhile, they focus on roadside bombs built with dynamite, sugar and fertilizer and detonated by remote control. One of northern Syria’s most powerful and best-armed commanders, Al-Sheikh boasts more than 1,000 fighters, and they don’t shy away from rougher tactics themselves. They have released prisoners in bomb-laden cars and then detonated them at army checkpoints _ turning the drivers into unwitting suicide bombers.Most of their weapons are booty, including at least two anti-aircraft guns, some anti-tank missiles and one tank, but they buy arms with donations from “honorable businessmen.” Although al-Sheikh, who ran a grocery store before the uprising, wouldn’t disclose the source or amount, he gets enough to pay some of his men monthly salaries of about $25, slightly more for those with wives and children. His fighters say the cash comes from Syrian expatriates and other Arabs. He was heard on the phone thanking a group in Bahrain.“God willing, Syria will not bow to anyone but Allah after the regime falls,” he said.___EDITOR’S NOTE: Journalist Ben Hubbard was part of a three-member Associated Press team that spent two weeks with rebels in northern Syria, gathering firsthand information on the increasingly bloody rebellion against President Bashar Assad _ the longest and deadliest uprising of the Arab Spring.center_img 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 The group was still high on a recent attack that had destroyed a military camp nearby. In the end, they photographed the dead bodies of 35 soldiers, drove off a tank they now park under a tree in the village graveyard and held trials for five captured soldiers. All were found guilty of killing other Syrians.“They traveled to Cyprus,” al-Sheikh said with a grin. “On a fast plane.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Sponsored Stories Like most rebel commanders, Dahnin said his group gets no outside support.“Here’s the biggest proof,” he said, pointing to a fighter wearing plastic flip-flops. “He’s only good for one thing: toothpaste advertisements,” he said, prying open the man’s mouth to reveal a row of rotten teeth.The conflict in Syria has already killed more than 14,000 people and appears headed for civil war. The Syrian government has ignored popular demands for reform, instead blaming the violence on armed gangs and foreign-backed terrorists. Others have warned against an influx of Islamists. The AP journalists saw no evidence of foreign fighters.The uprising reached Idlib in April 2011, about a month after Syrian protesters inspired by other Arab Spring revolts first took to the streets and faced violent security crackdowns.The protests started small in Ariha, a busy commercial center on the face of a round-topped mountain, but residents were shocked when regime forces shot and killed five protesters in one day, said Khalid Naif, a doctor. Many more people then joined in, armed first with hunting guns and later with attack rifles.A year ago, the army surrounded the city and took over a downtown building, paralyzing the city center, Naif said. He easily named many of the dozens of people he has treated for gunshot and shrapnel wounds since. Others died before reaching the clinic. Quick workouts for men A ring of checkpoints with a central army post full of snipers and armored vehicles also strangles Khan Sheikhoun, a dusty, sun-baked city further south, on the country’s main north-south highway. Local rebels can’t clear out the army, so they blast military vehicles on the highway with rocket-propelled grenades. Two destroyed armored vehicles, one still on its trailer, now lie in the road, and local fighters say the army has changed its route.“We can’t face the regime as an army face to face, so we have to fight like street gangs,” said Waddah Sirmani, head of one of the town’s half-dozen rebel brigades.Fighters have also surrounded the central base and fire on supply vehicles to keep the soldiers inside hungry and short of ammunition, he said.“You could say that those soldiers are imprisoned among us,” said activist Hisham Nijim.Almost all the rebels the AP journalists met were from Syria’s Sunni Muslim majority, and many consider the fight a religious cause. When asked what they are fighting for, most said they are fed up with corruption, harassment by security services and a system that gives preference to members of the ruling Baath party and the Alawite sect, to which Assad belongs. The word they used most often was dignity. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Daylast_img read more

Cyprus marks coup anniversary Update 2

first_imgAir raid sirens sounded at 8.20am on Saturday, marking the anniversary of the beginning of the coup on July 15, 1974 to overthrow president Makarios.A church service for those killed during the coup was held in the morning at Saint Constantinos and Eleni Church in Nicosia, attended by President Nicos Anastasiades and other officials.“This day is a day of shame, a black page in our history, a day of betrayal by the Athens military junta, which undoubtedly left its scars until today with the division of our country,” Anastasiades said.Wreaths were laid at the graves of those killed defending the Republic against the Athens-backed coup.Relatives of those killed fighting the coupists voiced their disapproval when the representative of far-right party Elam laid a wreath.“Shame, shame,” they cried.The Elam representative turned around and said: “Did you come to the Mari (naval base) memorial the other day?” He was suggesting that his detractors were leftists who supported former president Demetris Christofias and did not think he was to blame for the explosion at the naval base that killed 13 firemen and sailors.Reports said that after the end of the service, a woman removed the far-right party’s wreath.The party also laid a wreath at the graves of soldiers who died attacking the presidential palace on July 15, 1974.There was more embarrassment later when President Anastasiades failed to attend a special parliamentary session to mark the anniversary.House President Demetris Syllouris assumed responsibility, saying his office had omitted to send an invitation to the president.Akel leader Andros Kyprianou censured Anastasiades for being absent, saying that even without an invite, the president knew that parliament was convening to mark the anniversary.Diko chairman Nicolas Papadopoulos went a step further, tweeting a photo of Anastasiades as a young lawyer defending members of EOKA B in court.“No reference to EOKA B by N. Anastasiades in his statements today. Only to the Athens junta. Nor did he attend parliament,” the presidential hopeful said.The session started with a minute’s silence to honour the memory of those who died defending the Republic.Backed by Greece’s junta, National Guard units and members of the EOKA B paramilitary organisation ousted Makarios and replaced him with Nicos Sampson.In response to the coup, Turkey invaded the island five days later. It still occupies 37 per cent of its territory.Ruling Disy chief Averof Neophytou, whose party has been charged over the years of sheltering people with links to the coup, said Cypriots were obliged to draw lessons from the past.“We condemn (the coup) we don’t forget, and we will never forget,” he said.He also thanked the Greek parliament for handing over the findings of its inquiry into the events of July 1974. The probe had taken place between 1986 and 1988 but the archives were kept under wraps until now.Andros Kyprianou also thanked the Greek parliament, adding that the matter had been raised by the party after the current administration in Greece came to power in 2015.He said researchers, journalists, historians, and others, must be given unrestricted access to the documents.Part of the findings have not been handed over because they are still classified. The President of the Greek parliament has said that the material would be declassified and handed over, possibly in a few months.Nicolas Papadopoulos said “treason cannot be classified.”Edek chairman Marinos Sizopoulos said the archives contained aspects of conspiracy.Part of the material that was still in Greece were the archives of the National Guard command. You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

In a new animal-based study published in the journal Translational Psychiatry, I was a cheat I was a liar and a cheat Now mind you that was a different era way before the circumstances that came up later with Mia Farrow I had appeared on Saturday Night Live [after swimming around Manhattan] and the producer called me and said I have a friend who would love to ask you out I knew she meant a man so I said No Im not interested She said Its Woody Allen I said Tell him to call me right now I was a total liar presented myself as straight because I was such a fan Manhattan had just come out and it is one of my favorite movies of all time This is one of the great geniuses of our time and how hysterical is it that here I am in New York how much fun would it be to go to dinner with him And it was fun The second night I was totally uncool and when he told me Diane Keaton was a big fan [of mine] I was overly enthusiastic and said Really Why dont we call her have her over and do something with her He didnt like that That was the first clue and whatever the next clue was he went and opened the door and ushered me off He was pretty pissed off and I dont blame him I was young I was a jerk Not

where gender has nothing to do with it But in almost all sports we are different animals All the swimming events at the Olympic and world championships level are too short to make gender a non-issue
