Her life jacket was later found, but there was still no sign of her.Adults were in the boat at the time of the accident.San Diego lifeguard Lt. Rich Stropky said that the boat was not operating under its own power when it happened, and was drifting with the waves and wind.Rescue efforts were halted around sunset as conditions it became too dark for divers to safely continue.The lake has clearer water than most, a help for search crews, but it also has a lot of underwater debris, Stropky said.“There’s big huge rocks you can get snagged on, and there’s lots of trees and branches and that makes this type of thing always dangerous,” he said.Search crews were back in the water after daybreak Sunday, and the lake will be closed for recreation Sunday to aid in the recovery, according to Foster.Lifeguards spoke to the boat operator and were able to narrow down a location to restart the search using SONAR, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Monica Munoz.

San Diego DA clears police in custody death of Earl McNeil

McNeil died in a hospital 16 days later due to brain damage from lack of oxygen, she said.According to the medical examiner’s office, a high level of methamphetamine in McNeil’s system could have been enough to cause his death. McNeil was agitated for two hours starting when he first came into contact with National City police officers in front of their headquarters, and that could have led to heart and respiratory failure, Stephan said.Stephan played a 55-minute compilation video of the events following McNeil’s arrest, including paramedics trying to revive him as they prepared to take him in for medical and psychological evaluation.Before playing the video for reporters, Stephan informed McNeil’s family that officers and deputies would not be facing criminal charges in connection with his death. She said they were respectful of her decision, calling them “extremely wonderful people.”McNeil’s death prompted a series of protests and arrests at city council meetings in National City in recent months.The events that led to the one-time gang member’s death began shortly before 5:30 a.m. May 26, when McNeil called the National City Police Department’s emergency-communications center from a telephone near the entrance to NCPD headquarters.“During his conversation with the dispatcher, McNeil requested to speak with an officer and made paranoid, threatening and irrational statements,” according to a statement from the agency. “When officers arrived to speak with McNeil, he was very agitated (and) paranoid and said he was in possession of a controlled substance.”In order to “de-escalate the situation,” officers handcuffed McNeil, the memo states. At that point, he allegedly began resisting and spitting at the personnel, prompting them to put him in maximum restraints and take him to San Diego Central Jail.“During the intake process with county jail staff, McNeil exhibited signs of medical distress, and NCPD officers called for paramedics,” according to police. “Paramedics responded and treated McNeil at the jail. McNeil was transported by paramedics to UCSD Medical Center for additional treatment.”McNeil died in the hospital on June 11.Stephan said McNeil was an informant for the District Attorney’s Office in the 2003 murders of two women and the wounding of a 7-year-old boy in the Dr. J’s liquor store shooting. McNeil — who had a substantial criminal record — was a witness in the case and the only benefit he received was relocation money for his family to move out of San Diego due to safety concerns, the county’s top prosecutor said.Warning: The video contains content and strong language that viewers may find disturbing.

California bans state employees from traveling to South Carolina

first_img Updated: 3:47 PM Today California politicians banned travel to South Carolina for its “anti-gay” laws. Same idiots also applaud Gov. Gavin Newsom for traveling to El Salvador to stand in solidarity with that country. Guess they don’t care about the anti-gay laws in El Salvador. *sigh*— Carl DeMaio (@carldemaio) April 2, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, Posted: April 2, 2019 April 2, 2019 California’s State employees cannot travel on state business to South Carolina.Attorney General Xavier Beccerra imposed the rule of law because South Carolina now allows Christian based foster homes to deny placement of children, if the potential guardians are not of that faith.It is California law that the state can sanction travel to states that restrict access to gays, transgender people, or in this case, faiths from the rights of the general population.The South Carolina law is likely to be challenged in court, and is judged by many to be patently unconstitutional.The Office of the Attorney General in the State of California Department of Justice released the following information regarding the decision to ban state funded travel to South Carolina:SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today announced that, effective April 15, 2019, California will prohibit state-funded and state-sponsored travel to South Carolina as a result of a discriminatory provision buried deep within a general budget bill enacted on July 5, 2018 in South Carolina. The law, H-4950 Paragraph 38.29, enables private faith-based child-placing agencies to discriminate against those who do not conform to their religious beliefs or moral convictions, including members of the LGBTQ community. Although H-4950 does not mention sexual orientation explicitly, it is written broadly enough to authorize such discrimination, subjecting it to the provisions of California’s Assembly Bill 1887 (AB 1887).“The State of South Carolina recently enacted a measure that sanctions discrimination against families in the placement of children in need of homes. The State of California stands strongly against any form of discrimination. AB 1887 authorizes my office to make that promise real,” said Attorney General Becerra. “Pursuant to AB 1887, California will now bar state-funded or sponsored travel to South Carolina.”South Carolina’s discriminatory measure comes on the heels of other actions taken in the state prior to the enactment of H-4950. Earlier in 2018, South Carolina’s Governor Henry McMaster requested that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services waive all applicable anti-discrimination regulations to permit the faith-based foster care agency Miracle Hill, as well as other such agencies receiving public funds, to discriminate on any basis consistent with their religious beliefs. As a result of these discriminatory laws, Miracle Hill is able to collect information on the faith of those applying to be foster parents and use it to reject families who want to provide foster care solely on the basis of those beliefs. In one instance, these policies led to the exclusion of a Jewish woman who simply sought to mentor foster youth. This is particularly egregious in light of the fact that Miracle Hill accounted for 15% of all South Carolina foster placements and is reportedly the largest provider of foster families for children who do not have significant special needs in the state. Shortly after requesting an exemption from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Governor McMaster then issued an executive order propping up this discriminatory practice. In January 2019, the Trump Administration granted the waiver requested by Governor McMaster, sanctioning this form of discrimination in South Carolina’s foster care system.AB 1887, which took effect in 2017, prohibits state-funded and state-sponsored travel to states with laws that authorize or require discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. AB 1887’s restriction on using state funds for travel applies to California state agencies, departments, boards, authorities, and commissions, including an agency, department, board, authority, or commission of the University of California, the Board of Regents of the University of California, and the California State University.For additional information on AB 1887, including the list of states subject to its provisions, visit: www.oag.ca.gov/ab1887.center_img California bans state employees from traveling to South Carolina KUSI Newsroom South Carolina recently enacted a law allowing child-placing agencies to discriminate against prospective parents. We stand strongly against any form of discrimination, so, effective April 15, California will restrict state-funded travel to South Carolina. https://t.co/yUhXt8y3gS pic.twitter.com/eodf91atly— Xavier Becerra (@AGBecerra) April 2, 2019 Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

ALM Launches Free Digital Membership Program

first_img“We’d just seen that our audience had been changing in how they consume media,” Izzo says. “A big part of the change for us was the significant adoption of mobile and the engagement on social media.”Izzo says ALM made a big effort to transform into a digital-first company as a result. Another factor that contributed to the program’s creation was the significant increase in traffic on ALM websites from mobile devices, an increase of around 80 percent July over July from last year, according to Izzo.“Digital membership establishes a simple way for us to serve today’s subscribers and future subscribers with the online news content they want, when and where they want it,” says Jeffrey S. Litvack, chief digital officer at ALM in a statement.The free membership package includes digital access to five news articles every month from three controlled circulation publications, online access to news alerts, newsletters and previously archived news stories, and discounts on ALM products and services.“Subscribers will now have an easier way to click through to the content they want to read and non-subscribers will have a viable option for continuing to read by viewing five free stories a month,” Litvack contends.UPDATE: This movement of content from behind the paywall to the forefront with free access is a key advantage for subscribers, says Izzo.“The benefit to paid members is the ability to share the content to colleagues and potential clients,” Izzo says. “This ability to pass on a story to a colleague digitally makes that sharing process, either from social media or from your inbox newsletter, easier.”Digital membership holders have free and unlimited online access to three controlled circulation publications: Corporate Counsel, Law Technology News and The Asian Lawyer. ALM maintains that their four paid premium publications—Supreme Court Brief, Litigation Daily, New Jersey Law Journal Decision Alert and Delaware Business Court Insider—will continue to be accessible only to each publication’s subscribers. Paid subscribers will also maintain exclusive access to premium reports and briefings, including the Am Law 100 report.UPDATE: The decision to only allow five free news articles per monthly cycle was a strategic move on ALM’s part.“We want non-paid subscribers to test, trial, read and consume at least five articles a month across the network,” Izzo contends. “We felt that five was reflective of the engagement level of our readers on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.”More on this topic ALM Forms New Marketing Services Team InsideCounsel Folds Print Edition People on the Move | 5.17.12 ALM Newsletter Open Rates Jump 60 Percent After Mobile Optimization ALM Expands Regional Publishing Services Jeffrey LitvackJust In Meredith Corp.

After Tik Tok PUBG to be banned in India Twitter cant keep

first_imgPUBG moon mapPUBGAfter the Tik Tok app was banned recently in India, there is a likelihood of multiplayer video game, PUBG, also being banned especially since the civil societies and state administrations in various parts of the country have raised the alarm on the serious health consequences the video game can have on youth.The Rajkot Police in Gujarat has submitted an application to Google to take down PUBG from its play store citing the reason of detrimental effects the game has on the youth. Google, although is yet to respond formally to the Rajkot Police’s request. Recently after a Madras High Court directive, the Apple and Google took down PUBG from their play stores after a complaint that the youth are using the mobile app to spread pornography and other illicit activities. Both Tik Tok and PUBG have millions of users in India and a particular favourite among the youth.Rajkot recently said that it has banned the PUBG game in the city and asked Google to take down the online multiplayer battle royale game from its play store. “We have said we have banned this, so if possible, if in any IP of this area they are downloading the game then we have said, stop it if you can,”  Manoj Aggarwal,  Rajkot police commissioner, Manoj Agrawal, told Firstpost.The Gujarat Police had booked 10 people in March for playing PUBG under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code and warned that any person found playing the game will be prosecuted.Amid the reports of PUBG ban after Tik Tok, Twitter seemingly cannot keep calm.The parents and the educationists have expressed fears that these mobile apps are creating a bad precedent before the young kids and affecting their academics.Plz dont pubg and tiktok becoz of them so many are happy make them happy plz ban exams pic.twitter.com/CqRRlZdhXO— 『Deadshot☣︎ ヅ』 (@karthik85893273) April 19, 2019″I am totally fed-up with this game #Pubg.

However, now they need to put their best foot forward if they want to qualify for the playoffs.This IPL season is alive and kicking even in its penultimate week.Predicted XI of both the teams: David WarnerIANSSunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel AhmedKings XI Punjab: KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Mandeep Singh, Nicholas Pooran(w), Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Hardus Viljoen, Sam Curran, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep SinghFantasy tips and suggestions: KL RahulReutersWicket-keeper: Kings XI Punjab have used Nicholas Pooran as the wicket-keeper in the recent matches and he could be their trump card in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad as he could be shunted up the order.Batsmen: KL Rahul, who has been in roaring form for KXIP this year, will hold the key once again for Punjab. In the last match against SRH, he combined brilliantly with Mayank Agarwal, who should be another pick, to hand KXIP an easy win.Also, David Warner, who will be playing his final game of the season, remains the biggest threat for Kings XI Punjab in this fixture. And then there is Manish Pandey, a batsman who has suddenly erupted for SRH, and is one of the key members of this side. He has to come good for SRH, especially in the absence of Jonny Bairstow.All-rounders: R Ashwin could play Sam Curran in this match as in his short career so far, he has displayed tremendous temperament in crunch situations which is exactly what is needed in this crucial tie.Also, Mohammad Nabi, who could replace Shakib al Hasan, should be in the fantasy side, as he is a proven performer and always picks up wickets in the powerplay overs.Spinners: R Ashwin has been one constant performer for KXIP this year and has been frugal with his off break. Also, he has been able to pick up wickets in the bargain which has impeded the progress of the opposition.Also, Rashid Khan, who has been exciting and very effective this season, continues to pick up wickets and control the game in the middle overs.Seamers: Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar – Two Indian seamers who hold the key with the ball for their respective sides will have to be penetrative both with the new as well as the old ball.last_img read more

IndusInd Bank raises 225 million from OPIC to drive MSME lending

first_imgIndusInd Bank branch in Mumbai.Reuters fileThe Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) and IndusInd Bank on Friday executed a finance agreement for a $225 million loan supporting the expansion of the bank’s micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME) lending programs across India.At least 25 percent of the proposed facility will support women entrepreneurs and reach previously unbanked populations. This eight-year loan is part of the agency’s commitment to supporting $1 billion in loans to underserved small and medium enterprises in India.”Fostering access to finance opportunities for women entrepreneurs and MSMEs is important for increasing higher economic output throughout India,” said acting OPIC President and Chief Executive Officer Dev Jagadesan.”OPIC recognizes the positive impact supporting women entrepreneurs can have in a community. We are proud to partner with IndusInd Bank to expand access to critical financial services,” he added.Speaking in the occasion, Romesh Sobti, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of IndusInd Bank, said: “This agreement with OPIC will help IndusInd Bank to further enhance our MSME lending franchise, thus providing the impetus to some of the major growth drivers of our economy. This also marks a significant milestone for the Bank as it helps us reach out to a new class of global investors to drive our growth.”IndusInd Bank, a private bank headquartered in Mumbai, India, reaches MSMEs across broad and diverse industries. MSMEs are an important segment of the Indian economy, but are often constrained by a lack of access to capital. This OPIC loan will support IndusInd Bank in increasing its MSME lending.Wells Fargo Bank also signed a $20 million finance agreement at the event supporting IndusInd Bank’s MSME lending, which will include at least 25 percent dedicated to women entrepreneurs.last_img read more

BCL leaders under fire over lavish lifestyle

first_imgPresident and the general secretary of the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL)The extravagant lifestyle of the president and the general secretary of the Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), and the lack of transparency in disbursing funds, have not gone down well with the BCL leaders and activists.They are also unhappy about the anomalies regarding control of tenders and the tenure of the central committee.In Wednesday’s general meeting of the BCL, its joint general secretary Sayem Khan demanded an explanation regarding the allegations and a heated debate ensued.To make things worse for the ruling party’s student wing, two factions of its Sylhet MC College unit swooped down on each other on Thursday, forcing the authorities to close the institute sine die.BCL president Saifur Rahman told Prothom Alo that Sayem Khan has apologised to him for his remarks, but the latter has denied this. “I was asked to apologise, but what I said was right. I just demanded that the funds be utilised in a systematic way. Why will only the president and the GS have all the fun? They have to look after the other leaders as well,” Sayem said.BCL president Saifur and general secretary SM Zakir Hossain came under fire from a number of senior leaders of the wing at the general meeting. They alleged the duo have an extravagant lifestyle and misappropriate BCL funds.When asked, Saifur said, “It does not really matter if one or two people say things like that.”BCL leaders present at the meeting told Prothom Alo that Saifur had said they receive the money from the prime minister. Zakir said they get Tk 230,000 from the PM.Sayem then retorted that he should get a share of that money as well.Besides Sayem, vice-president Mehedi Hasan, Aditya Nandi and Maksud Rana also brought a number of allegations against the two top leaders.On 13 January, Saifur came under severe criticism for flying to a convention in Ishwardi, Pabna by helicopter.Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader also slammed the BCL president for this.The present BCL committee will expire on 26 July. The questioned was raised at the BCL general meeting as to whether there will be a general meeting and whether the tenure will be extended.Saifur told Prothom Alo, “The convention will be held the day the honourable PM wants.”Following a meeting of the AL’s presidium members on Thursday, Obaidul said, “The country has been hit by floods. It won’t be that long before the convention is held.”A number of BCL leaders also asked the meeting why steps would not be taken against leaders for their unethical actions.Clash, infighting across the countryThe year did not start well for BCL as there were infighting at Sylhet University of Science and Technology (SUST) and Comilla Medical College units.The ruling party’s student wing made newspaper headlines in the next six months for their involvement in 37 incidents, including clash over controlling tenders, mugging, beating cops, abusing teachers, infighting and murders.Of those, 12 were related to establishing supremacy and financial affairs. Infighting killed three in Chittagong, Comilla and Chuadanga in the last six months.In a meeting with BCL men on 11 June, AL general secretary Obaidul Quader said, “You must not be part of any misdeeds for the want of money. Come to me if you need money. I shall talk to the party president [Sheikh Hasina].”On 21 January, BCL men fought among themselves to take control of the extorted money from business outlets around Dhaka College. The central committee expelled 19 including Nur Alam Bhuiyan, convener of then Dhaka College BCL committee. Nur Alam, however, went to visit Laxmipur with central committee president in March.Dhaka (South) unit BCL general secretary Sabbir Hossain and Wari Thana unit general secretary Ashiqur Rahman were expelled after they were seen firing gunshots in newspapers photos during eviction of hawkers from footpaths at Gulistan on 9 February.Three leaders of Begum Rokeya University unit BCL were excluded for confining varsity’s vice chancellor AKM Nur-Un-Nabi for 14 hours on 3 May for not giving jobs to the party activists.On 11 February, infighting over taking control of drug peddling killed BCL activist Yasin Arafat at Reajuddin Bazar in Chittagong. Eight were injured as the supporters of Chittagong University unit BCL president and general secretaries locked in a clash on 4 May.

Slow internet likely till Thursday

first_imgUntitled-4The government is purchasing 40 gbps bandwidth from France to make up for temporary bandwidth scarcity but shortfall will still remain.The Bangladesh Submarine Cable Company Limited (BSCCL) is buying the bandwidth to address the gap between demand and supply, caused by the three-day interruption in the operation of the first submarine cable.During this shutdown, which began early Tuesday, the nation is set to experience a scarcity of 230 gpbs (giga byte per second) bandwidth.So, internet service providers say, internet speed will be slow although officials claim there will be no problem in connectivity.The second submarine cable (SEA-ME-WE-5) is contributing 110 gbps, but the country still has a scarcity of 80gpbs bandwidth, according official records.The month-long deal with France, done via US firm Cogent, costs the BSCCL $20,000 (Tk 1.6 million).”So ensuring uninterrupted internet will not be a problem,” said BSCCL managing director Mashiur Rahman.However, internet service providers say the speed of internet will be slower these three days. As a result, general users will suffer. IT organisations that depend on high-speed internet will suffer the most.”Internet is like oxygen nowadays. If the internet speed gets slowed down, it affects the whole day’s output. Most of the things we do, especially keeping in touch with the foreign clients, are reliant on online clouds,” said Shafiul Alam, chief executive officer of Blancer, an online marketplace.BSCCL data show, the country has a daily demand of 470 gbps bandwidth.The two submarine cables contribute to 270 gbps while the remaining 200 are imported from India through International terrestrial cable (ITC).*The article, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Quamrul Hassan.last_img read more

British MPs give Brexit approval

first_imgMembers of Parliament react as the deputy speaker Lindsay Hoyle announces the results of the main vote on the EU Notification of Withdrawl Bill to the members of parliament in the House of Commons in central London. Photo: AFPBritish MPs overwhelmingly backed a bill on Wednesday empowering Prime Minister Theresa May to start negotiations on leaving the European Union, bringing Brexit a significant step closer.Members of the House of Commons voted by 494 votes to 122 for a law enabling May to trigger Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty, which begins two years of talks on pulling out of the 28-nation bloc.“We’ve seen a historic vote tonight—a big majority for getting on with negotiating our exit from the EU and a strong, new partnership with its member states,” said Brexit minister David Davis.The unamended two-clause bill now moves to the House of Lords, where there may be more opposition from unelected peers—and where May’s Conservative party does not have a majority.But its passage through the Commons, where two-thirds of MPs had campaigned against Brexit ahead of the June referendum, puts May on course to begin the withdrawal process by the end of March, as she has vowed.Labour headachesThe referendum result sent shockwaves around Europe, spooking investors and raising fears for the future of the EU itself.In the early weeks, there was speculation that pro-European lawmakers might try to delay or even stop the Brexit process.May initially sought to bypass parliament, prompting an appeal to the Supreme Court that last month ruled she must obtain their approval to trigger Article 50.But during five days of debate on the resulting government bill, it became clear that most MPs would not stop the process—even if some warned that leaving Europe’s single market could be disastrous.The opposition Labour party and the smaller Scottish National Party (SNP) tabled amendments demanding guarantees on market access, workers’ rights and those of EU citizens in Britain.Each was defeated, although during the process the government was forced to promise lawmakers a vote on the final Brexit deal before it is concluded.Labour imposed a “three-line whip,” a tough disciplinary measure ordering its MPs not to oppose the legislation, ensuring it would pass.But some 52 Labour MPs rebelled in Wednesday’s vote, including business spokesman Clive Lewis who resigned shortly beforehand, bringing a fresh headache for embattled leftist leader Jeremy Corbyn.After two-thirds of Labour voters backed Brexit, many of them driven by concerns over mass immigration from the rest of the EU, Corbyn decided his party could not block the process.“Real fight starts now. Over next two years Labour will use every opportunity to ensure Brexit protects jobs, living standards & the economy,” Corbyn wrote on Twitter following the vote.But he was swiftly reprimanded in a reply by SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon: “How? You’ve just handed the Tories a blank cheque. You didn’t win a single concession but still voted for the bill. Pathetic.”‘Ode to Joy’SNP lawmakers voiced their frustration during Wednesday’s vote by singing Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”, the EU’s anthem, before being told off by Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle.But the outcome was celebrated by Brexiteers such as Nigel Farage, former leader of the UK Independence Party.“I never thought I’d see the day where the House of Commons overwhelmingly voted for Britain to Leave the European Union,” he wrote on Twitter.Liberal Democrat lawmaker Nick Clegg, the former deputy prime minister, said the vote would allow the government to pursue its aim of a hard Brexit, which will see Britain pull out of the single market.“There is no mandate for the hardest of hard Brexits the government favours, which risks leaving us poorer, weaker and more isolated,” he said.May has promised to prioritise controlling migration in the Brexit negotiations, even if that comes at the expense of giving up membership of Europe’s single market and its 500 million customers.last_img read more
