The Republic of Ireland’s constitution requires blasphemy – applicable only to Christianity – to be outlawed. But in 1999 its common-law offense was ruled to be incompatible with the constitution’s requirement for religious equality. A new statutory offense protecting any religion against “publication or utterance of blasphemous matter” was introduced in 2006; but now the public will decide whether to abolish the blasphemy law completely.Read the full article here.

Teen jumps off plane in Oklahoma City as he tries to avoid arrest by police

first_imgRafael Pardeiro/Twitter(OKLAHOMA CITY) — Police at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma caught up with a teen wanted on a felony warrant Monday afternoon — they just had to chase him across the runway to do so.According to the airport, when United flight 5706 landed in Oklahoma City at about 1:45 p.m. local time, a 16-year-old passenger on the flight from Houston ended up jumping off the plane to avoid arrest.“He has a felony warrant out of Cleveland County, OK and was going to be picked up from the airport by deputies,” Will Rogers Airport said in a statement. “Apparently he knew he was going to be picked up and when getting off the plane, he jumped from the plane down to the tarmac and a foot chase by airline, airport and law enforcement took place.”He was then taken into custody by Will Rogers police.The teen managed to jump from a roof to the jet bridge and then to the ground inside a construction zone, according to the airport.He suffered minor injuries, was removed from the tarmac via stretcher and taken to the hospital.“United Airlines is cooperating with law enforcement officials following an incident with a passenger after United flight 5706 arrived at the gate in Oklahoma City this afternoon,” the airline said in a statement to ABC News. “We refer any additional questions on this matter to the local authorities.”Airport operations were not disrupted, officials said.The teen was wanted on a warrant for second-degree burglary, Oklahoma City ABC affiliate KOCO-TV reported.

Winter distribution and haul-out behaviour of female Antarctic fur seals from South Georgia

first_imgTelemetry-based techniques have revealed the foraging patterns of many land breeding marine predators, especially during the summer breeding season. However, during the winter, when freed from the constraints of provisioning their young, such animals are more difficult to track. Using geolocation (Global Location Sensing, GLS) loggers and satellite tags (Platform Terminal Transmitters, PTTs) we successfully tracked 16 female Antarctic fur seals from South Georgia during the austral winter. The majority of females concentrated their winter foraging in the waters around the breeding beaches (90% of locations were within 510 km). However, as the winter progressed, two of the seals spent a number of months to the south, in and around the seasonal ice edge, and five seals migrated north and northwest from South Georgia. Four of these seals clearly crossed the Polar Front and two reached the Patagonian Shelf, apparently exploiting the continental shelf edge and the Subantarctic Front. Activity (saltwater immersion) data suggested that seals spent the majority of the winter months at sea but there were rare occasions when seals hauled out, either on land or on ice floes. We obtained data from two individuals that enabled us to compare the performance of PTT and GLS devices. For these seals the mean distance between GLS and PTT locations was 122 and 132 km. Although the recovery rates were low in this study, given improvements in attachment techniques, we have demonstrated that these micro-geolocation loggers provide an ideal tool with which to study the long-term dispersal of diving marine predators at larger scales. This is the first study to show that female fur seals from South Georgia remain at sea for almost the entirety of the non-breeding winter period. Using land-based observations it has been assumed that the fur seal population at South Georgia has little temporal overlap with the krill fishery that operates mostly during the winter months in this region. We have shown that a large proportion of the female fur seals that breed on South Georgia potentially remain in the vicinity of the island and are thus in direct competition with the region’s fisheries activities.last_img read more

Dick Vitale wants more mid-majors in March Madness

first_img Written by March 22, 2019 /Sports News – National Dick Vitale wants more mid-majors in March Madness FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — NCAA college basketball analyst Dick Vitale has a message for the NCAA selection committee: find a way to get more mid-major programs in the tournament.“It’s great to see the David’s and the Goliath’s,” Vitale said in an exclusive conversation in ABC News before the NCAA Men’s Tournament began. The ESPN analyst discussed his advice for the NCAA, predictions, and recommended a recipe for family and friends watching the games.“I think it would be a lot better if we had more of what I call ‘David’s’ in the tournament. There are a lot of mid-major teams… that had great, great years that are not going to get in the tournament.” He points to Hofstra as an example.Teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Big Ten Conference (B1G), Big 12 Conference, Pac-12 Conference, and Southeastern Conference (SEC) are often recognized as Power Five schools. A mid-major team would come from a conference such as the Big Sky or MAAC. Hofstra, for example, is in the Colonial Conference.Vitale argues with 15th- and 16th-seeded teams in recent years knocking off Power Five programs, such as University of Maryland – Baltimore County defeating Virginia in 2018, it is time to open up the field.He believes mid-major teams who have better records than schools in Power Five conferences many times have a good of a chance of winning games and make the tournament even more exciting.Citing Loyola Chicago’s 2018 Final Four appearance, Vitale says, “It makes people want to watch… fans who don’t even follow the tournament wanted Loyola Chicago last year.”Vitale warned against expanding the field beyond 68 teams, however, saying the 36 at-large bids are acceptable for the men’s tournament, but having only a handful of spots being granted to mid-majors is “just not fair.”As for who Vitale thinks will win the tournament, he is betting against the mid-major teams in this year’s March Madness:“If Duke is healthy, and Zion Williamson is ready and all their players… they are the team to beat.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Rate at which agents are leaving Rightmove accelerates

This means, if this slide continues, the portal could lose up to 2,000 agencies this year.Although this sounds optimistic, the four agent groups hoping to persuade agents to leave – or at least threaten to leave – the portal include between them some 2,500 estate agencies.Read more about agents leaving Rightmove. Richard Dixon The Yorkshire Property Guide Rightmove May 29, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentMurray Lee, Dreamview Estates Dreamview Estates 29th May 2020 at 7:00 amAnd I’m sure there will be more after the SayNoToRightmove / Iain White Webinar on 3/6.If you have not signed up please feel free to contact me for the link.Once that airs many will realise they need us more than we need them!#togetherwearestronger #agentsuniteLog in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Hill Denies Wrongdoing As His Disciplinary Hearing Ends

first_imgBy Brandon BargerTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Attorney General Curtis Hill firmly denied charges Thursday that he groped and grabbed a lawmaker and three legislative staff members at a March 2018 party marking the end of the legislative session.In calm, measured tones Hill testified that while he had a few drinks, he wasn’t inebriated at the gathering at AJ’s Lounge in Downtown Indianapolis and that his actions, while friendly, were not “rude, insolent or angry.”“I touched no one in a rude manner,” Hill said.Hill was the sole witness Thursday, the fourth and final day of his disciplinary hearing before retired Supreme Court Justice Myra Selby. Since Monday, she has presided in the paneled and ornate courtroom of the state Supreme Court over testimony – sometimes graphic, sometimes emotional – about what happened at that party.The disciplinary commission has accused Hill of touching the women in a rude, insolent or angry manner. For three of the women, the touching constitutes misdemeanor battery for unwanted contact. He is accused of grabbing the hand of the fourth woman when she tried to push his hand away and then forcing it toward buttocks, which amounts to a Level 6 felony.Thursday was the first time that Hill publicly gave his account of night. He was briefly called to testify on Wednesday morning by the disciplinary commissions legal team to spell out the duties of the attorney general, but did not return to the witness table that afternoon.So when the sun filtered through the Supreme Court’s stained glass windows the next day, Hill strolled into the chamber and took his seat, ready to testify in his own defense.Under questioning by Donald Lundberg, one of his three attorneys, Hill calmly denied each of the charges leveled against him.No, he said, he didn’t grab the buttocks of Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon, D- Munster. Yes, he might have touched her bare back—she was wearing a backless dress—but he touched a lot of backs that night as he moved through the crowd.No, he didn’t touch the rear end of Republican legislative aide Niki DaSilva but believes she was one of the women he attempted to guide through the crowd to the bar.No, he didn’t tell Democrat legislative aide Samantha Lozano that “yes, you’re hot,” but instead agreed with her that it was hot in the bar, which was packed with more than 100 people.And no, he didn’t rub Democrat Senate staffer Gabrielle McLemore Brock’s back and doesn’t even remember meeting her.During the questioning by Lundberg, Hill sat in the chair with his legs crossed, glasses in one hand, his voice never changing pitch or wavering.Hill said he hadn’t planned to go to the party until he met a friend, lobbyist and GOP political activist Tony Samuel, at the Capital Grille. He went with Samuel to a bar at St. Elmo’s and then to the party at AJ’s Lounge.Through the night, Hill said, he had a glass of wine at the restaurant and bar, and at the party had a vodka martini that he “nursed” through the night plus a shot of Fireball whisky that he “sipped on.”However, Hill maintained that at no point during the night was he impaired.Disciplinary commission attorney Seth Pruden focused much of his attention on email chains that included Hill, Samuel and others as they talked about how to rebut the allegations as they became public.Hill said that just because he was on the email chain, doesn’t mean that he read them.However, he did respond “thank you, very enlightening” to one email chain with the subject line “Re: Background on disciplinary committee members.”In that email, Danny Diaz, a political consultant wrote: “Any objection to pitching story to conservative media that (Gov. Eric) Holcomb cronies and liberals are driving this?”Though the hearing is concluded, a lengthy process ensues before Hill knows his fate. First, the court reporter will prepare a record of the hearing. Then both sides will prepare their own findings, a last chance to argue their sides to Selby. Selby will reach her conclusion but the final decision is made by the Indiana Supreme Court.If they decide Hill was at fault, the justices could issue a punishment ranging from a public reprimand to stripping him of his license to practice law – a step that would preclude Hill from remaining as attorney general.FOOTNOTE:  Brandon Barger is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.Print Friendly, PDF & Email Hill Denies Wrongdoing As His Disciplinary Hearing EndsOctober 24, 2019, Posted by Janet Williams FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
