OTTAWA — The federal government is showing no apparent signs of toughening its stance on arms sales to Saudi Arabia, even after Canada’s spy chief heard a recording of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.Speaking to reporters today in Windsor, Ont., Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland reiterated Canada’s position that no new arms-export permits will be signed for Saudi Arabia as the Khashoggi case is being reviewed. That’s no different from what Canada’s been saying for weeks.Khashoggi’s killing last month at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul further strained Riyadh’s already difficult relationship with Canada and renewed public outrage over Ottawa’s controversial $15-billion deal to sell light-armoured vehicles to the kingdom.CSIS director David Vigneault recently travelled to Turkey to listen to the recording Turkish authorities have of the killing and briefed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as well as other top officials upon his return.Freeland says Canada is reviewing its arms sales to Saudi Arabia — but her government has come under pressure to cancel the armoured-vehicles deal.She also says she spoke with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Monday to press for a credible, transparent investigation into what she calls Khashoggi’s “atrocious murder.”Under intensifying pressure, Riyadh has changed its story about Khashoggi’s death, first saying he walked out of the consulate the day he disappeared but eventually acknowledging he was killed inside the building. Saudi Arabia has also recently acknowledged Turkish evidence that showed the slaying was premeditated.The killing has prompted international condemnation, including from Trudeau himself, but the prime minister has offered no clue on how the recordings may have affected his thoughts on the matter.Trudeau has said the penalty for cancelling a $15-billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia would be “in the billions of dollars.”The Canadian Press

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia’s newly reelected administration says its promise to slash income taxes might be delivered late but won’t be broken as the government hopes to stimulate consumer spending and revive a flagging economy.Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said Tuesday passing the legislation that would reduce the annual tax bill of 10 million Australians by 1,080 Australian dollars ($740) is the government’s first priority when Parliament resumes once the vote counting from Saturday’s election is finished.Prime Minister Scott Morrison chose the latest possible date to call an election that delivered his conservative coalition a surprise victory.But the timing means he probably won’t be able to recall Parliament to pass the tax cuts before July 1 — when Morrison promised during the election campaign that the lower tax rate would take effect.The Associated Press

However inclement weather by last afteroon had worsened with torrential rains, covering the whole of the area with a pall of thick mist, compelling stranded picnickers to go in all directions, away from one another as darkness was enveloping the mountains. Over 200 members of the Army serving in Kandy were involved in the operation to rescue 455 students of the Sri Jayawardenapura and Jaffna universities who went missing in the Hantana mountains in Peradeniya.Army spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya said that all the students who went missing yesterday were rescued were brought to safety at daybreak today. As excitment, tension and sheer desperation began to grow every second with no assistance forthcoming in sight, one of the stranded lecturers in the group had reportedly alerted the Kandy Police on their plight over a mobile phone and pleaded for emergency assistance.Police in turn immediately contacted the Kandy 11 Division Headquarters of the Army for action since the Army has the potential for such rescue operations at short notice and in times of national disasters, etc. More than 200 officers and soldiers of 2 Sri Lanka Sinha Regiment (SLSR), 20 Gajaba Regiment (GR) and Sri Lanka Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (SLEME) of the Training School in Gannoruwa launched the rescue operations by last evening.Hours after the launch of the operation the army traced the whereabouts of 71 missing students at first, of whom 7 were found critically ill. They were admitted to the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital.By 4.30 a.m. today the troops completed the mammoth rescue operation after saving all the 455 missing students, including four lecturers and 30 student monks who were on the expedition, organized jointly by University of Jaffna and University of Peradeniya. He said that 386 undergraduates and several lecturers of the Sri Jayawardenapura University joined by 65 undergraduates and 4 lecturers of the Vavuniya Faculty of University of Jaffna as part of their annual picnic last morning, had commenced trekking the popular Hantana mountain range after entering from the Peradeniya University side. The army spokesman said that 46 among the stranded who were in poor health were rushed to the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital for medical treatment.

This was a sophisticated and an involved fraud which preyed on vulnerable and elderly victimsProsecutor Leo Seelig A wine company boss who cheated his clients out of their fine vintages is facing jail.Jonathan Piper, 30, was the sole director of Embassy Wine UK Ltd, which claimed to act as brokers for investors in fine wine.The company cold-called prospective investors and persuaded them to hand over control of their collections to Embassy, which then sold them and broke off contact.These “clients” were also made to pay fees before sales could be transacted. Victims took out bank loans, used credit cards and even cashed in pensions to pay the fees. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. At least five people lost up to £300,000 in the scam – one of whom lost £150,000 out of her life savings – which operated between June 2011 and October 2014.Piper used the cash from the con to fund a lavish lifestyle and spent almost £90,000 on a BMW X6 and Range Rover Sport.None of the income he generated between 2008 and 2014 – either legitimately or otherwise – was declared to HMRC, which was subsequently swindled out of £51,104 in income tax payments.Piper appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Tuesday, where he had been due to stand trial accused of fraud by false representation, cheating the Inland Revenue, fraudulent trading and two counts of converting criminal property.Prosecutor Leo Seelig said: “The prosecution would simply say that this was a sophisticated and an involved fraud which preyed on vulnerable and elderly victims.”The court heard that Piper, now working as a scaffolder, intended to borrow money from friends in order to repay a portion of the money, which he put at closer to £200,000, following his guilty pleas.”It is his hope that he will be able to reduce the amount that is owed to the victims before sentencing,” said Thomas Day, defending. She added: “These offences, just one of them alone, is likely to attract a custodial sentence and for my part I cannot see any reason why Mr Piper should not begin that sentence as of now.”It would be unfair, in fact, for him to go out and come back knowing that there is a lengthy sentence that he will face and in those circumstances I refuse bail.”It is my decision and I appreciate that he has been entrusted with bail in the past but he must begin his sentence now.”Piper, of Wanstead, east London, admitted cheating the Inland Revenue, fraudulent trading and two counts of converting criminal property. He was remanded in custody ahead of sentence on September 16. Judge Louise Kamill said: “I have listened very carefully to Mr Day, but I am afraid I am not going to grant bail.”It seems to me before reparations are proposed, first of all, they will of course be taken into account by the sentencing court.”Secondly, these reparations are not going to be personally made by Mr Piper. He never has done and nothing has been done to date.”If people are intending to make a dent in the losses on his behalf, their efforts of course will be taken into account. But it does not devolve around Mr Piper.”He is not, himself as a scaffolder, going to get a loan of about £200,000 or however he is proposing to repay those losers.”

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, August 11, 2016 – Police have locked up a Provo man for attacking, in September last year, a young woman and her little brother, after he changed his plea from not guilty to guilty.Evanson Walkin was arrested and charged with carrying an imitation firearm to cause fear and aggravated burglary after a startling and sickening incident. Drunk and disorderly is one way to describe Walkin on that day last year as the Police reports that he not only followed and harassed a 25 year old young woman on her way home in Five Cays on Saturday September 26, 2015, but for attacking her, threatening her, attacking her little brother who tried to defend her and for threatening a neighbor who tried to stop his maniacal behavior.The woman reportedly asked Evanson to leave; instead he dragged her to the floor and wrapped her head in a curtain. That is when the little brother, only 9-years old stepped in to stop Walkin, who then did the unthinkable.The man, now jailed for the crime, took a flare gun and pushed it into the child’s eye and threatened to shoot him…. the boy ran, shaking and screaming outside only to be followed by Evanson, according to the Police. Evanson continued to beat up the little boy, and even when a neighbor tried to step in to stop the abuse, that neighbor was also threatened with the flare gun, Walkin reportedly told her she would be killed.Evanson Walkin is said to have fled the scene at that point; he was the next day arrested and after two days of trial this week, the man is now in Her Majesty’s Prison until October, when he will be sentenced.Though the ordeal was undoubtedly frightening for the 9 year old boy, in this Police account it is clear that the little brother is a hero – his intervention could be described as nothing short of amazingly courageous.

Following his application for the parole for 42 days, the jail superintendent had written to the Sirsa district administration. In a letter dated June 18, the official had sought a report whether releasing Gurmeet on parole would be feasible or not. In the communique, the jail superintendent mentioned that Gurmeet’s conduct in the jail has been good and he has not violated any rule.

Earlier today we reported on the contents of the PS4 console retail box. It is what we expected–a console, DualShock 4 controller, and all the cables you need. On launch day you’d expect to pick one up along with a game or two. But Sony may have a second option available it has yet to officially announce.A gallery on the US PlayStation website has appeared containing 30 images of the console. However, the images are numbered 1-33. So what is hidden in those three images Sony chose not to use? You can view the telling picture above.It seems Sony has decided to bundle the PS4 with the camera and a copy of first-party launch game Knack (which Jimmy Fallon recently got to play). Whether this bundle is still set to happen is unclear, but it would make sense to maybe offer this with a $499 price tag and match the base price of the Xbox One.Although the Knack box is shown in the image, I’d imagine Sony would just include a code in the box for a download version of the game. That would save on cost while still offering a lot of value to the gamer. With a 500GB hard drive as standard it’s still going to leave you with an abundance of space for other download games.I’m guessing Sony has just decided to hold back this PS4 bundle pack to announce as a surprise closer to launch. If it is indeed a launch pack, then it’s another blow to Microsoft and the Xbox One. Not only are they competing with a cheaper console, they might actually be launching at the same price as a rival console that ships with a camera and a game included.

Register Now » January 3, 2019 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Most people are probably never going to own a Segway, but the company is aiming to have more people interact with its products. At CES 2019, Segway-Ninebot will debut its first ever autonomous delivery robot designed to perform the final leg like of transporting packages. It’s also showing off the Model Max, its next generation of shared scooter designed to get people around the city (or be ditched on the sidewalk).The Model Max scooter is right in Segway-Ninebot’s wheelhouse, seeing as the company already makes electric scooters that are used by popular scooter-sharing services. With the Model Max, it’s promising a new “top of the line vehicle” for traveling in urban environments. The next-generation scooter will reportedly be more weather resistant than previous models, as well as more reliable and safe — a nice assurance after scooter sharing firm Lime recalled thousands of Segway scooters believed to be at risk of bursting into flames while charging. Segway didn’t offer much else by way of specs for the scooter other than to note it aims to provide a better and cheaper ride.Segway-Ninebot’s Loomo Delivery bot leaves the realm of riding entirely. The autonomous vehicle is instead designed to perform package deliveries. Built like a mailbox on wheels, Loomo Delivery uses AI to bring parcels to their final destination. Segway-Ninebot envisions the little bot doing the duty of delivery in office buildings or malls. The little bot has a built-in camera to help it see and relies upon proprietary algorithms to navigate and keep from slamming into walls. It’s almost more novelty than anything at this point so don’t expect your favorite mailman to start looking for work.Image credit: Segway-Ninebot This story originally appeared on Engadget Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min read

A new advancement in haptic robots happened when four organizations, Shadow Robot Company, SynTouch, HaptX, and ANA Holdings came together. These companies have built the “world’s first haptic robot hand” that transmits touch to the operator, the details of which they shared on Friday. Credit: Shadow Robot Company Haptics is one of the growing technologies in the field of human-computer interaction that deals with sensory interaction with computers. It is basically the science of applying touch sensation and control for interaction with virtual or physical applications. How haptic robot hand works? First, the HaptX Gloves capture the motion data to control the movement of the anthropomorphic dexterous hand by Shadow Robot Company. The BioTac sensors built by SynTouch are embedded in each fingertip of the robotic hand to collect tactile data. This data is used to recreate haptic feedback by the HaptX Gloves and is transmitted to the user’s hand. The system was first demonstrated in front of all the collaborating companies. In the demo, an operator in California used a haptic glove to control a dexterous robotic hand in London, under the guidance of a team from ANA Holdings in Tokyo. When the robot started typing on the computer keyboard, the embedded tactile sensors on the robot’s fingertips recorded the press of each key. The haptic data was shared with the human operator in California through the network in real-time. The words typed by the robot were “Hello, World!”. In the demo, the telerobot was also shown doing a bunch of other things like playing Jenga, building a pyramid of plastic cups, and moving chess pieces on a chess board. Credit: Shadow Robot Company Credit: Shadow Robot Company In an email to us, explaining the applications and importance of this advancement, Kevin Kajitani, Co-Director of ANA AVATAR within ANA Holdings, said, “This achievement by Shadow Robot, SynTouch, and HaptX marks a significant milestone towards achieving the mission of Avatar X. This prototype paves the way for industry use, including medicine, construction, travel, and space exploration.” Rich Walker, Managing Director of Shadow Robot Company, said, “This teleoperation system lets humans and robots share their sense of touch across the globe – it’s a step ahead in what can be felt and done remotely. We can now deliver remote touch and dexterity for people to build on for applications like safeguarding people from hazardous tasks, or just doing a job without having to fly there! It’s not touch-typing yet, but we can feel what we touch when we’re typing!” Dr. Jeremy Fishel, Co-Founder of SynTouch, said, “We know from psychophysical studies that the sense of touch is essential when it comes to dexterity and manipulation. This is the first time anyone has ever demonstrated a telerobot with such high-fidelity haptics and control, which is very promising and would not have been possible without the great engineers and technologies from this collaboration.” Jake Rubin, Founder and CEO of HaptX, said, “Touch is a cornerstone of the next generation of human-machine interface technologies. We’re honored to be part of a joint engineering effort that is literally extending the reach of humankind.” Read Next The new Bolt robot from Sphero wants to teach kids programming Is ROS 2.0 good enough to build real-time robotic applications?

Over the next couple of years, it plans to recruit 10,000 more officers and spend $30 million on arming them with weapons. The increase will bring the total number of police officers in the Central American nation to 35,000 – one agent for every 400 citizens.Guatemala has one of the highest violent crime rates in Latin America. According to the United Nations, in 2011 the country’s homicide rate was 38.5 people per 100,000. Most European countries have a rate of 1.In the past, Guatemala’s police force has been described as underfunded, poorly trained and often outgunned. The recent changes mean that all officers will have access to firearms, as well as the authority to use them. Previous weapons shortages meant that officers were often unwilling to confront armed criminals.In the absence of public security by the state, Guatemala’s private security industry has grown at exponential rates. Analysts estimate that up to 150,000 private security guards operate in Guatemala, outnumbering the country’s current number of police officers – 25,000 – by at least four to one. Many earn minimum wage, carry dangerous weapons and often lack proper training – a lethal combination that at times threatens, rather than protects, the country’s citizens. In an effort to improve policing, police uniforms have been changed, patrol cars have been equipped with new satellite tracking systems and two new police academies have been opened.The reforms are being modeled on Colombia’s police force after its government implemented various changes that are believed to have contributed to significant reduction of crime in the South American country.“The changes are taking place to improve and dignify the work of the police. It will put them at the forefront and help them do their jobs better,” said Jorge Aguilar Chinchilla, police inspector and a police spokesman.Included in the recently installed technology are strategically positioned cameras that capture license plate numbers and send signals to police to alert them of stolen vehicles.“All police officers used to be trained in Zone 6 [in Guatemala City], but now there’s an academy in Huehuetenango and another in Santa Rosa,” Aguilar said.“The same thing is happening with the police networks: Workshops were all held here in the capital, but now each regional precinct has their own workshops, their own supplies and they don’t have to travel to [the capital] to repair a unit. It’s a decentralization procedure that has sped up the process for a lot of Guatemalans,” he added.It is hoped that these changes will help install more trust in the police and strengthen justice and law enforcement in the Central American country – preventing it from becoming a haven for criminals.However, many Guatemalans believe that arming officers with more weapons could make the situation worse. A recent report by the National Economic Research Center found that Guatemala’s firearm homicide rate is almost twice the global average, with 82 percent of homicides linked to firearms. A surplus of weapons could lead to an increase in the number of illegal arms circulating in the country, which could fall into the hands of gang members, critics say. Facebook Comments

According to Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) Minister Luis Felipe Arauz, ₡7 billion ($12.8 million) correspond to agricultural losses and ₡3,5 billion ($6.4 million) are related to livestock damage, .The drought has caused a significant reduction in pasture growth capabilities (75 percent). Losses in local production include some 5.8 million liters of milk, 2.5 million kilos of meat and 2,400 kilos of honey, Arauz added.MAG officials are still counting losses of other products including sugarcane, rice, watermelon, coffee and corn.Arauz spoke about the alert Tuesday in a joint press conference with CNE director Iván Brenes, Water and Sewers Institute (AyA) President Yamileth Astorga and National Meteorological Institute (IMN) director Juan Carlos Fallas.The yellow alert requires local emergency committees to send supplies — like salt and water — to take care of farm animals. The local committees also will schedule town meetings with local farmers and residents to talk about drought conditions, Brenes explained.Brenes added that a red alert is possible in coming weeks if not enough is done to mitigate the effects of the drought.IMN data confirms that Guanacaste has recorded just 2 liters per square meter of rainfall during July, which is “equivalent to barely 1 percent of the historical average of 155 liters for the region,” said the agency director.“The Central Pacific currently registers a deficit of some 30 percent,” Fallas explained.AyA’s Yamileth Astorga also reported that the country is already struggling to supply potable water to the region. The government is sending water tank trucks as well as equipment to dig new wells in the region.Dry conditions in Guanacaste contrast with those in the Caribbean and the Northern Zone where heavy rains in the past weeks have caused flooding in several communities.More rain is expected in both regions through the end of the week, increasing the possibility of more flooding and landslides.Surging rivers on Tuesday morning left hundreds of people isolated in the Caribbean towns of Guácimo and Pococí, and CNE reported that 50 people remain in shelters.

4 must play golf courses in Arizona BRUSSELS (AP) – The European Union’s top official says that Serbia needs to improve its strained ties with its former province of Kosovo if it’s going to make progress in its ambition to join the EU.European Council President Herman van Rompuy says Tuesday that an improvement is the “key requirement” for Belgrade’s EU membership.He praised Serbia’s new, nationalist-leaning government for its decision to remove a key stumbling block in Kosovo’s participation in international forums. But he told Serbia’s visiting Prime Minister Ivica Dacic that a solution to the volatile situation in northern Kosovo was needed. Members of the Serbian minority there reject the authority of the ethnic Albanian-dominated government in Pristina.Belgrade has vowed to never recognize Kosovo’s 2008 secession, but the two sides have been in talks on normalizing ties.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

April 24, 2012 434 Views “”Fitch Ratings””:http://www.fitchratings.com/ has released its commentary on the current rends in regional home pricing, noting that significant variability persists among each area surveyed. [IMAGE]In its recent report, Fitch also called for the nation’s housing recovery to continue at an “”irregular and anemic pace”” for the duration of 2012.According to data from Fitch, the West has been hardest hit by flagging home prices, stating that states in the region “”have undergone a radical structural shift over the last five years, diverging somewhat from other parts of the country.”” Fitch said that in the West, California is enduring the strongest impact of the general downward trend in U.S. home pricing.[COLUMN_BREAK]Citing tighter credit standards and static levels of household income, Fitch’s analysis revealed that all regions are experiencing lower prices for new home sales, as well as a broader buyer prevalency for purchasing smaller homes. In the West, both trends were especially evident across Fitch’s findings.””Census data indicate that new single-family homes priced under $200,000 now account for 22.9 percent of the total in the West, compared with 12.2 percent in 2007. Over the same period, the share of new sales driven by homes priced above $500,000 shrank from 22.7 percent to just 8.6 percent of all new sales in the region,”” Fitch stated. Despite the poor numbers seen in the West recently, Fitch did reveal that it “”may be the first region to show material improvements in pricing.”” The group pointed to the minimal yet important 0.5 percent uptick in home pricing in the area during the fourth-quarter of last year as a sign of positive change. During the same period, the Northeast, Midwest, and South regions continued to show only decreases in pricing. However, Fitch’s statistics showed that borrowers nationwide are slowly “”starting to apply for larger mortgages, probably for trade-up houses,”” indicating forward progress is imminent.Lastly, the report examined the country’s Fitch-rated homebuilders, forecasting which companies appear set to benefit from the U.S. real estate market during the year ahead. Fitch found that “”Toll Brothers””:http://www.tollbrothers.com/ and “”Standard Pacific””:http://www.standardpacifichomes.com/ could be headed for a strong 2012 based on current analysis.
