Accused Sunil Kumar arrested in connection with the rape and murder of a three-year-old girl earlier this month had abducted and killed seven more girls — aged between 3 to 8 years — after raping them in separate cases in Gurugram, Delhi and Madhya Pradesh over the past two years, the police said on Tuesday.Of the seven victims, two are from Gurugram, three from Delhi and one each from Gwalior and Jhansi, said DCP (Crime) Sumit Kuhar.From religious placesThe 20-year-old Sunil would abduct minor girls from near bhandaras (community feasts) at religious places. Then he would rape and later kill them, the police said. He would also abduct minor girls from slums when their parents would be away for work.Mr. Kuhar said the accused would brutalise his victims — break their limbs — before killing them.Sunil had confessed to the murders during interrogation and the facts were being verified from the police stations concerned, the officer said.Besides the rape and murder of the three-year-old, abducted from a slum cluster in Sector 66 on November 11, Sunil had kidnapped a girl from outside a temple on Sohna Road in November 2016 and another girl at Civil Lines in January last. Both the girls were raped and murdered.In the present case, the victim was subjected to brutality during rape causing severe injuries to her private parts. She was hit with a heavy object and died due to head injuries. Mr. Kuhar said the police have questioned around 2,000 vagabonds sleeping on the roads during an extensive search operation for the accused. “We had information that he preferred to eat at community feasts at religious places and slept on the roads. We conducted three community feasts on November 13, 22 and 24 laying a trap for him,” said Mr. Kuhar.Sunil ate at a gurudwara and spent the night at Nehru Park after the commission of crime on November 11. He then reached Delhi and took a train to Uttar Pradesh on the next day after spending the night under Nizamuddin bridge.The senior police officer said on the earlier two occasions, the police had no clue but this time around he was seen luring the victim. He was also captured on a CCTV camera at a group housing society along with his victim and his relatives also provided his picture.The accused is from UP’s Mahoba district. He was nabbed from at UP’s Magapur village on Monday. Sunil was produced before the court in the afternoon and remanded in eight days police custody, the police said.

argentinabanBrazillionel messi First Published: November 16, 2019, 11:14 AM IST Lionel Messi returned from international suspension to score the winner in Argentina’s 1-0 victory over Brazil in Saudi Arabia on Friday.After the game, Messi said that the wi over arch-rivals Brazil was ‘important’. “It’s important to win and it is always nice to beat Brazil, for the rivalry, which feels a lot of late,” said Messi. “It’s good for everything that is to come, to continue growing while looking towards the qualifiers and the next Copa America (in 2020).”The Barcelona striker, who missed four games after calling the South American Football Confederation “corrupt,” scored after 14 minutes to give Argentina a deserved victory in the so-called Superclasico.The result extended Brazil’s winless run to five games since they lifted the Copa America in July, their worst such run since 2013.Brazil beat Argentina 2-0 the last time these teams met in the Copa America semi-finals and they should have taken a ninth-minute lead but Gabriel Jesus fired a penalty kick wide after he had been brought down in the box.Argentina were also awarded a penalty five minutes later and although Brazilian keeper Alisson saved Messi’s initial effort, the Barcelona striker followed up to put Argentina 1-0 ahead.Messi missed two chances to double Argentina’s lead before halftime, with defender Eder Militao and Alisson blocking the opportunities.Brazil, who were without Paris St Germain striker Neymar, had two-thirds of the possession but rarely threatened the Argentine goal in a game that featured 41 fouls and six yellow cards.Argentina, meanwhile, looked more sprightly, even without Sergio Aguero and Paulo Dybala, both of whom were unused substitutes.Argentina have now won three of the five games they have played since their semi-final exit at the Copa America.(With inputs from Reuters) Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

WC Qualification CONCACAF Panama feeling pressure as it looks to avoid reliving 2014 final day nightmare Jon Arnold Click here to see more stories from this author @ArnoldcommaJon Last updated 2 years ago 13:13 10/10/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Mike Ehrmann WC Qualification CONCACAF Panama Panama v Costa Rica Costa Rica World Cup A fight with the country’s press demonstrates that the World Cup hopeful is beginning to fear a repeat of last cycle’s final day The anger went viral. The undercurrent is what matters.The video of veteran Panama defender Felipe Baloy insulting a reporter after a 4-0 loss to the United States and a heated news conference conversation between coach Hernan “Bolillo” Gomez and a different journalist made headlines throughout the region Friday.Panama 8/13 to beat Costa Rica Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. The anger is there, though, because Panama is feeling the pressure. Four years ago Panama was in this same spot, looking like it was headed for the playoff. But a late collapse against the U.S. on the final matchday sent Mexico into the playoff and postponed Panama’s dreams.This is a country that has never qualified for the World Cup, and if it doesn’t do it 2018, it will have to scrap what it’s doing and start all over. The top players are familiar to fans in CONCACAF because of their longevity. The 36-year-old Baloy has been a centerpiece in Panama’s back line for more than a decade. Forward Blas Perez, also 36, made his international debut the same year as Baloy. Goalkeeper Jaime Penedo, another member of the 36 club, wasn’t long behind.There are five Panama players in the current squad with more than 100 caps — Baloy will get there shortly and Armando Cooper could hit the mark next year. The team’s nine most-capped players are active, and Amilcar Henriquez would make a 10th were it not for his shocking murder. With respect to pioneers like Luis Ernesto Tapia, Rommel Fernandez and the Dely Valdes brothers, this is the first generation of Panama players who, together, have shown their quality. These men have taken Panama from purely a baseball country to one that can compete on the international level.They know this is their last chance. So too do their countrymen, including those in the media. Panama’s press is unlike that of the U.S., where journalists keep an objective perspective and stay withdrawn from the team, or Mexico, where media members see criticizing the team as a full-time occupation. In Panama, the press is looking to be the representative of the population at large.Panama is a small country, and everyone there — journalist, electrician or professor — wants to make the World Cup for the first time. When things are going well, everyone is happy. When it’s going poorly, well, you saw what happens.That’s why Gomez freezing out the press, announcing a day after the loss in Orlando, Florida, that he and his team would no longer be speaking with reporters, was still a bit jarring, even if it wasn’t stunning. It prompted Panama daily Mi Diario to run the headline “The enemy is on the field,” seemingly trying to remind Gomez and his men where the focus needs to be.¡DALE RT! El rival de Panamá está en la cancha. @MiDiarioPanama pic.twitter.com/0bTy4oJI66— Mi Diario Panamá (@MiDiarioPanama) October 9, 2017It is indeed the pitch of the Estadio Rommel Fernandez where everything will be decided. Panama is yet to lose there in the Hexagonal, generally a formula that would send the nation to the World Cup. Panama has, however, settled for too many draws. Holding Costa Rica to a point should be enough to get into the playoff, with a Honduras win over Mexico and a U.S. stumble against Trinidad & Tobago the only scenario that would see Panama bumped. Of course, Panama did nearly enough last time and ended up staying at home.You could say the Ticos will do everything in their power to keep Panama from qualifying, but you would be wrong. The team’s biggest star, Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas, along with defenders Kendall Waston, Bryan Oviedo and Cristian Gamboa, have returned to their clubs after locking up World Cup qualification in dramatic fashion last week.That’s good news for the home side. Panama’s 3-0 win against Trinidad & Tobago at home to close the September window was a high point. Then, nearly the same lineup ran into a buzzsaw in the form of the Americans. Now the seeds of doubt are creeping in.The specter of 2014 is looming in the shadows. The pressure is on — and it will be if Panama moves into the playoff as well. No matter what the press writes or what questions are asked after, Gomez and Co. must perform Tuesday or the chapter on this generation of Panama’s players will have an unhappy ending.

Next Reuters MadridApril 2, 2019UPDATED: April 2, 2019 19:49 IST Zidane says he does not want to see Madrid without Varane, but is doubtful about Bale future (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSReal Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said he cannot think of his side parting with France defender Raphael VaraneZidane though refused to clarify if Gareth Bale would remain at the club next seasonZidane said he’ll decide the future of Gareth and other players at the end of the La Liga seasonReal Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said on Tuesday he cannot envisage his side parting with France defender Raphael Varane but he could not give any guarantees about the future of winger Gareth Bale.French newspaper L’Equipe reported last month that World Cup winner Varane was looking to leave Madrid after eight seasons in the Spanish capital, in which he has won four Champions League crowns and two La Liga titles.Speaking at a news conference ahead of Real’s La Liga visit to Valencia on Wednesday, Zidane dismissed reports about Varane’s supposed departure.”I cannot imagine a future without Varane and I don’t want to. He’s a young player, he has been here for eight years and he is doing very well,” Zidane said.”I’m not going to comment on what is being said outside. The important thing is what the player tells me and for now he’s at the best club in the world, he’s won a lot of things and I think he is in a good place.”The future of Bale, the club’s record signing, is more uncertain as he was again subjected to boos from Real’s own supporters during Sunday’s 3-2 win over Huesca, in which he missed an opportunity to score from close range.Zidane admitted the supporters were not helping the Welshman but he refused to clarify if Bale would remain at the club next season.”I don’t know how it affects him but booing a player is never good, they also booed me but you have to accept it and every player who is here has the character to deal with it,” Zidane said.advertisement”We’ll decide the future of Gareth and other players at the end of the season, we’ve got nine games left and then we’ll see. I can confirm that we will have to make changes next season but now is not the time to talk about it.”Madrid are third in the La Liga standings with nine games left of the campaign, 12 points adrift of runaway leaders Barcelona. They are already out of the Champions League and Copa del Rey.Also Read | Zinedine Zidane to start second tenure at Real Madrid with La Liga match vs Celta VigoAlso Watch | What it was like to watch the El ClasicoFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

zoomImage Courtesy: Maersk Danish shipping major Maersk has signed an agreement with PBF Logistics, which would deliver 10% of its annual fuel demand ahead of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 global sulphur regulation.Under the deal, Maersk would source and PBFX would process crude oil at CPI Operations LLC, a PBF Logistics LP terminal facility in New Jersey, United States. This would enable Maersk Oil Trading to supply IMO 2020-compliant 0.5% marine fuel to its customers on the US East Coast.Annual production will be around 1.25 million metric tonnes (mt), the equivalent of around 10% of A.P. Moller – Maersk’s annual fuel demand.“This processing agreement forms a cornerstone in Maersk’s fuel sourcing strategy for the IMO 2020 sulphur cap,” Niels Henrik Lindegaard, Head of Maersk Oil Trading, said.“The vast majority of our fleet will comply with the regulation through use of compliant low sulfur fuels. With the capability to produce and store compliant low sulfur fuel on the U.S. East Coast we take control of the fuel supply in a key maritime hub for us. We will continue our drive to ensure compliance in all geographies come 2020.”In August 2018, Maersk and Vopak signed a leasing agreement for storage of 2.3 million mt 0.5% compliant fuel, equivalent of around 20% of Maersk’s annual fuel demand, at the Vopak Europoort Terminal in Rotterdam.

TORONTO – More than 1,000 charges were laid against 75 members and associates of a Toronto-based gang after police seized guns, drugs and thousands of dollars in cash during a series of early morning raids this week, authorities said Friday.The arrests have “significantly disrupted” the Five Points Generalz, Toronto police said at a news conference where they displayed dozens of handguns, bags of narcotics and wads of money taken from the gang.“The individuals arrested in this operation are not simply kids being exploited by gang members, nor are they addicts being used to support their addictions,” acting Insp. Don Belanger said. “They are organized criminals, a significant number of whom are no strangers to the criminal justice system.”The raids targeting the street gang, which is allegedly responsible for a number of shootings in the city, came as many Toronto residents demand action to address a recent spate of high-profile gun crime.The majority of the charges laid during the blitz were for gun, drug and organized crime-related offences. At least two people were also charged with participating in a criminal organization with the intent of committing murder — an offence that does not necessarily mean a murder took place, police said.The police sweep, code named Project Patton, resulted in the seizure of $184,000 of illegally earned cash, large amounts of cocaine, fentanyl, carfentanyl, heroin and marijuana, and the largest number of guns ever confiscated at one time by Toronto law enforcement, officers said.Police seized 60 brand new semi-automatic handguns from a Generalz associate as he drove them from Cornwall, Ont., to Toronto last month, Belanger said.Many of the guns, which were traced back to Florida, come in fluorescent colours and patterns, leading Deputy Chief James Ramer to compare them to one of his granddaughter’s squirt guns.“We will be sending out an officer safety bulletin because many of these guns, if they were pointed at a police officer, (the officer) could very easily conclude that either a toy gun or a water pistol is being pointed at them,” Belanger said.Police said they believe they have arrested the highest-ranking members of the Generalz, but acknowledged that Project Patton will not put an end to gang activity in Toronto.“We realize that drugs equal easy money and that there will always be people willing to step in and fill that void,” he said.Police conducted a similar blitz against the Five Point Generalz in 2010, during which they arrested 98 people. Belanger said 13 of those Generalz members were arrested again during Project Patton.“There are absolutely people who served their sentence and were released and chose to return to a life of criminality,” Belanger said, calling the situation frustrating.“We know that not everyone that goes through the correctional process comes out rehabilitated… Let’s be honest, I don’t think the day will ever come when we can completely stop that.”

The Canadian PressOTTAWA – The federal Conservative election campaign will face yet another legal distraction Monday as the criminal trial of a former top aide to Prime Minister Stephen Harper begins.Bruce Carson is set to appear in an Ottawa court on an influence peddling charge in connection with the proposed sale of water-filtration systems to aboriginal reserves.The former senior adviser to Harper is also accused of three counts of illegal lobbying, charges which are expected to be dealt with at a later date, likely early next year.The Carson case follows on the heels of the trial of Senator Mike Duffy, which forced the Tories off of their campaign message over a two-week period in August.It’s the latest in a string of accusations that have been aired against Conservatives and Harper appointees, including the jailing of Harper’s former parliamentary secretary Dean Del Mastro for election fraud. Del Mastro is appealing his conviction.In Carson’s case, the Tories have pointed out the allegations against him came to light after he had left the Prime Minister’s Office.Carson has denied doing anything illegal and has pleaded not guilty to all charges. None of the allegations against him have been proven in court.His lawyer, Patrick McCann, says the trial, which was previously delayed as Carson dealt with some personal health issues, has been trimmed to a single day, down from an originally planned six days, under an agreement with the Crown to base it on transcripts of witness testimony already obtained at a preliminary hearing.Those transcripts are in the hands of the judge, said McCann, who predicted the case won’t draw the same kind of media attention that was attracted by the Duffy trial.“I suspect it won’t be quite as large (a media presence),” said McCann. “I’m sure there’ll be a few cameras around.”The influence peddling charge against Carson is related to his work with a company that employed his girlfriend, which was hoping to sell water purification equipment to First Nation communities.He is alleged to have directed that 20 per cent of any revenue gained through the sale of the water-filtration systems go to his then-fiancee, Michele McPherson.It was Harper’s office that first called in the RCMP after the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network reported that Carson had allegedly been lobbying Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada and the then-minister’s office on behalf of the now-bankrupt Ottawa-based H2O Water Professionals (H2O Pros).Revelations that subsequently emerged about Carson, including his criminal record and disbarment by the Law Society of Upper Canada — which he disclosed when he was hired by the Prime Minister’s Office — prompted opposition questions about whether the PMO was conducting adequate security screening of its staff.Carson had worked in politics for decades and was one of the more experienced hands in Harper’s government when it came to power in 2006. Carson had also worked for Harper as his policy and research director when the Conservatives were in opposition.

Après l’explosion de la fusée Proton, la Russie suspend ses lancementsMardi, lors de son décollage, une fusée russe Proton a pris feu avant de s’écraser au sol. Suite à cet accident, les équipes ont décidé de reporter les autres lancements et la mise en orbite des satellites Astra, Sirius, et Turksat.Suite à l’accident qu’a connu une fusée russe Proton-M après son décollage depuis le cosmodrome de Baïkonour, l’Agence spatiale russe a décidé de reporter les lancements de fusées Proton M qui étaient prévus au cours des prochains mois et devaient permettre d’installer plusieurs engins : un satellite de télévision européen Astra 2E (du Luxembourgeois SES) le 20 juillet, un satellite de radio nord-américain, Sirius FM-6, le 14 août, un satellite militaire russe Kosmos le 5 septembre, le satellite de communication russe Express AM-5 fin octobre et enfin le satellite de télévision Turksat 4A fin novembre.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreCitée par l’AFP, une source du secteur spatial russe a a expliqué “une commission d’enquête a décidé [mercredi] soir de suspendre tous les préparatifs de lancement de fusées Proton depuis Baïkonour [au Kazakhstan]. Ces lancements seront reportés et ne reprendront que lorsque seront mises en œuvre les propositions de la commission d’enquête pour augmenter la fiabilité des Proton”. La chose est en effet nécessaire car, les équipes ignorent encore ce qui a causé l’arrêt du fonctionnement des propulseurs 17 secondes après le décollage du lanceur. De plus, lorsqu’elle a pris feu, la fusée a libéré dans l’atmosphère quelque 600 tonnes de combustible hautement toxique donnant naissance à un “nuage toxique” et obligeant à évacuer temporairement une partie des équipes de Baïkonour. Enfin, l’accident a bien entendu causé la perte des trois satellites du système de navigation Glonass-M (le GPS russe) que la fusée emportait avec elle. Un préjudice de 140 millions d’euros Selon une source au sein de l’industrie aérospatiale russe citée par RIA Novosti, le préjudice s’élèverait à au moins 140 millions d’euros, les prix des satellites et du Proton-M étant extrêmement élevés. “L’accident précédent [le tir manqué d’un lanceur doté d’un bloc d’accélération Breeze-M, ndlr] a occasionné 125,8 millions d’euros de préjudice. Cette fois, les pertes seront plus importantes. Le prix des satellites a augmenté et celui du Proton-M aussi. Je pense que le montant du préjudice se situera aux environs de 140 millions d’euros, au bas mot”. Le 5 juillet 2013 à 13:43 • Maxime Lambert

Since the measles outbreak began about a month ago, Kaley McLachlan-Burton has developed a routine.She returns home from work, lays on the floor and yells: “Puppy pile.” Her Chihuahua mixes, Birdie and Bobby, race to envelop her.“That’s been a nice release to go home at night and play with dogs,” said McLachlan-Burton, an environmental outreach specialist with Clark County Public Health.Release is necessary for McLachlan-Burton, since she’s part of a three-person team spearheading communications for Public Health during the outbreak, along with Christine Harper, an environmental health specialist, and Marissa Armstrong, Public Health’s public information officer.That group spends hours each day planning messaging, monitoring Facebook and Twitter and responding to comments and questions they encounter on social media. It’s a task that can be aggravating and repetitive, but social media duties during a disease outbreak are one of the most important aspects to Public Health’s response work.That’s because Public Health isn’t just fighting an outbreak; the staff is also fighting convincing misinformation from anti-vaccinations advocates and groups. Clark County Public Health Director Dr. Alan Melnick said that even if something isn’t true, if people see it enough they can come to find it credible.“Some of it is really sophisticated,” Melnick said of the propaganda. “To someone who is a layperson, it can seem really believable.”The Royal Society for Public Health, a charity in England, Wales and Scotland, recently published a report on vaccine misinformation that included a survey of more than 2,400 parents and 2,000 other adults.

Brazil manager Tite has admitted that the side are still haunted by “the ghost” of their humiliating 7-1 defeat to Germany in the previous World CupThe two sides are set to meet in Berlin for the first time since the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup, where Joachim Low’s side cruised to a shock 7-1 win over the hosts.“This has a huge psychological meaning – no-one needs to fool themselves about that,” Tite told Kicker.“The 7-1 is like a ghost, people still talk about it. The more you talk about it, the less this ghost disappears.”In the semi-final clash, Germany scored five goals, unanswered, in the space of just 29 minutes into the game. Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos scored twice and Miroslav Klose broke the scoring record for the World Cup in 2014.Neymar can win the Ballon d’Or, says Ander Herrera Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 An “excited” Ander Herrera believes new Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar is a contender for the Ballon d’Or alongside Kylian Mbappe.“I was watching the game [in 2014] at home in Sao Paulo with my wife and after the third goal went in, she started to cry,” said Tite.“That started me off. It was a moment of great inspiration for Germany, every shot was a goal – stuff like that doesn’t even happen in video games.“The wound is still open and the match in Berlin is a part of the process of closing it.”In their previous friendly, Brazil defeated Russia with a convincing 3-0 win in the absence of Neymar. Juventus’ Douglas Costa is expected to make way for Manchester City’s Fernandinho for the match against Germany, in what should be the only change.

Arsene Wenger has revealed the reason behind his turning down the chance to manage Real Madrid ‘two or three times’ when he was Emirates boss.He departed Arsenal towards the end of the 2017-18 season after 22 years of being in charge. He had previously claimed that he rejected a number of advances from other clubs during that period including Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, while Real Madrid apparently made heavy moves to persuade Wenger to LaLiga.Now, Wenger has uncovered the why he decided to stay with the Gunners, despite having all the big clubs that wanted him.“Real Madrid, I think I turned them down two or three times. They are one of the teams I loved as a kid but I felt it was a very sensitive period for Arsenal,” he told beIN Sports.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“When we built the stadium, the banks asked me to commit for five years. The first time, it was inside the five years and I thought ‘I cannot do that’, it would be betraying my club.”He also added why he turned down the chance to manage England after Euro 2000.“The daily involvement was important for me and I felt that it should be an English guy that takes the England national team,” he added.“It is a big football country and they have a lot of quality managers. I thought it wasn’t right for me. I said no once, twice. I turned so many clubs down, you wouldn’t believe it. But I was happy where I was as well.”

Virgil van Dijk believes Liverpool’s attacking trio in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane can be “undefendable” following their 5-1 win over ArsenalThe trio scored all of Liverpool’s goals on Saturday at Anfield as they extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points from Manchester City.The Reds have won their last nine league games now with City coach Pep Guardiola suggesting they may be the world’s best team right now.“We were almost perfect. We conceded the goal. That was the only thing,” said Van Dijk, according to FourFourTwo.“But it was an important win. We have finished 2018 now pretty well, and hopefully, we can keep that going.“Confidence is definitely here, but it can change over a couple of games. We won’t get carried away.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“We need to keep doing what we have been doing. There will be setbacks, as there always is in life, but it’s how you react and so far we have been doing pretty well.”Salah, Mane and Firmino have scored a combined total of 28 of Liverpool’s 48 Premier League goals this season.“At the beginning of the season, people were saying they [the front three] didn’t click,” said Van Dijk.“They’re fantastic. You see in this game as well and they can be undefendable. It’s scary — and I’m happy to see that.”Jurgen Klopp’s side will next take on City on Thursday at the Etihad Stadium with kick-off set for 21:00 (CET).

Employees at supermarket retailer Asda have received a return from the organisation’s sharesave scheme, totalling £62 million. This affects approximately 25,000 members of staff. Sharesave schemes allow eligible employees to save directly from their salary over a set number of years, at the end of which they can either take this money and a tax-free bonus as cash, or use it to buy shares at a discounted price which is calculated at the beginning of the scheme.Asda’s 2016 sharesave plan enabled employees to save between £5 and £300 per month over a three-year period. At the end of this time, employees could opt to purchase shares in Asda’s parent organisation, American retailer Walmart, with a 20% discount on the 2016 market value. Staff subsequently had the option to sell these shares for a profitable return.At the point of entry into the scheme, the option price, including a 20% discount, stood at £36.99; as of 1 July 2019, the price had increased to £87.12.An employee saving £70 a month into the share scheme, therefore, would have saved £2,520 of their own money during the three-year period, but choosing to make use of the option to buy and sell shares for a return would see this rise to £5,924.50. Individuals saving the maximum amount of £300 a month are now able to receive a £25,353.42 award, creating a £14,553.42 profit.Hayley Tatum, senior vice president, people at Asda, said: “Giving our [employees] the chance to save each month, risk-free, is just one of our ways of saying thank you and a great way to ensure that they reap the rewards of their exceptional efforts.”

Santa led the school in Christmas songs and took photos with the good boys and girls.The heartwarming holiday visit is now a magical memory that will last a lifetime. “It’s just the magic of Christmas come alive. It is terrific, and it’s a wonderful event every year we do it,” said Trache. “It’s one of the things that, when the children get older and they graduate, they always want to come back for Santa Claus, and it’s just one of those indelible memories that people have here at St. Mark’s.”The annual event has taken place at the school for more than 30 years.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

(WSVN) – Santa didn’t need a sleigh to spread holiday cheer at a South Florida school, Monday.Old St. Nick gave his reindeer a rest as he delivered to St. Mark’s Episcopal School in Fort Lauderdale — in a helicopter.“His reindeer don’t do well in the heat, so yes, they take the helicopter,” said the Rev. Robert Trache.Rudolph and a few of his elves, however, still came out and joined students as they anxiously waited for Santa to land in his sweet new ride.School leaders said the annual event has a lasting impact on students. “Everybody is excited and ready for the season to commence,” said Trache.The children were excited about welcoming the bearded visitor from the North Pole, but some were not sure what to even say to him. “‘Welcome to St. Mark’s.’ I really have not thought it out,” said one student.Some former students who were all grown up even came back for the Santa sighting. “Three teachers who are graduates of St. Mark’s, and they have come back,” said Eliza Ragsdale, assistant to the rector.

The Pavlof Volcano ssh clouds were reported to reach 22,000 feet yesterday. (Photo by Christopher Diaz at northernXposed Photography)Alaska Volcano Observatory spokesmen say a low-level eruption of a volcano about 625 miles southwest of Anchorage is escalating, with pilots reporting that ash clouds are getting bigger.U.S. Geological Survey scientist John Power said Monday in a statement that pilots have recently reported ash clouds from the Pavlof Volcano rising to 22,000 feet above sea level.Scientist Robert McGinsey says the current eruption began Saturday and lava has reached the surface. Asked how long the eruption might last, he replied, “hours, days or weeks.” On Saturday, a pilot reported a gas and ash plume about 8,000 feet above sea level.McGinsey says aircraft flying below 25,000 feet should avoid the area. He says the ash cloud is currently a narrow plume streaming about 50 miles to the east.The 8,262-foot volcano is one of the state’s most active.An eruption last year prompted regional airlines to cancel flights to nearby communities.

That’s according to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. The department along with other state, federal, and international agencies has been testing Alaskan seafood since 2013.Listen nowAfter the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, food safety authorities, including the FDA, reported it would be highly unlikely that radiation would affect Pacific seafood in the U.S. But Marlena Brewer, the spokesperson for DEC, said there was still significant public concern in Alaska.“Fishing is such a huge part of our lives here, so I think that there was this overwhelming concern,” Brewer said. “They wanted to see Alaska specific data.”Food safety inspectors were already collecting samples around Alaska as a part of normal food safety operations. In 2013, they began collecting additional samples to send to the FDA lab in Massachusetts to test for Fukushima-related radiation. Species tested include king, chum, sockeye, and pink salmon, halibut, pollock, sable fish, herring and Pacific cod.In 2016, Alaska was selected as the first state test site for implementation of a field deployable gamma-ray analysis system to analyze fish for radionuclides. The system is housed in Anchorage. The FDA continues to analyze the results, but now the samples are tested in-state.“The idea is that, in the unfortunate event that there’s another incident like Fukushima, the FDA would be able to deploy these instruments to other states so that they could get the real-time monitoring data instead of kind of scrambling after the fact and trying to coordinate these sampling efforts like we have,” Brewer said.Brewer said that they will continue to test Alaska seafood specifically for Fukushima-related radiation for at least one more year. None has been detected since testing began.
