LONDON — Front-runner Boris Johnson is officially launching his campaign to be Britain’s next prime minister, telling fellow Conservatives they must take the U.K. out of the European Union or see the party wiped out by angry voters.Johnson plans to tell supporters at a campaign rally Wednesday that “delay means defeat.”Ten Conservative lawmakers are running to succeed Theresa May as party leader and prime minister.Johnson is the bookies’ favourite and has won the backing of many Brexiteer Conservatives by promising Britain will quit the EU by Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal.He’s a flamboyant and popular figure, but rivals have criticized his low-profile campaign. Johnson hasn’t given any television interviews or held public events, in a bid to avoid gaffes that could hurt his chances.The Associated Press
Sudanese officials in El Fasher, North Darfur, said yesterday that the Government wants to return the civilians to between six and eight urban centres in the region, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported.Khartoum has asked humanitarian agencies to provide “return packages” to the IDPs to help them relocate, and to transfer their operations to the urban centres when required.UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are both operating in Darfur, where more than a million people have become internally displaced since early last year, when fighting broke out between two rebel groups, Government forces and Arab militias known as the Janjaweed. OCHA said the agencies and NGOs are insisting to Sudan that they be consulted before any IDPs are relocated so they can ensure the mass movement is voluntary and that returnees have adequate assistance to help them re-settle.Most IDPs have told the agencies they are unwilling to return until their safety is guaranteed. Many fled their homes after they were attacked by the Government-allied Janjaweed, who stand accused of killing and raping civilians and destroying villages, wells and cropland.In South and West Darfur, the number of IDPs continues to rise – in one example, about 12,000 people have recently arrived in Gereida in South Darfur, seeking shelter in schools and abandoned public buildings. More policemen have also been posted to the IDP camps to improve security.Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said heavy rains are severely hampering its efforts to help the estimated 180,000 people who fled Darfur for neighbouring Chad. About 140,000 people have so far been transferred to nine safe camps inside Chad.Rains are also causing problems in Darfur, rendering road travel almost impossible in some areas, according to OCHA.Tomorrow the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan, Jan Pronk, will brief the Security Council on the latest developments in Darfur.
A United Nations expert on torture has called on the German authorities to prosecute Uzbekistan’s Minister of Internal Affairs, Zokirjon Almatov, who is currently in Germany for treatment, after several survivors of torture filed a case against him in the German courts. The Special Rapporteur on torture of the UN Commission on Human Rights, Manfred Nowak, noted that his predecessor visited Uzbekistan in 2002 and concluded that torture is systematic in the former Soviet Central Asian country. “He also said that torture appears to be used indiscriminately against persons charged with serious crimes such as acts against State interests, as well as petty criminals and others,” Mr. Nowak said in a statement. These concerns have been exacerbated by the findings of a report of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights that the military and security forces committed grave human rights violations while curbing demonstrations in the eastern city of Andijan in May, he added. “The Special Rapporteur recalls that victims of torture have a right to legal redress [for] crimes of torture, that torture is subject to universal jurisdiction and that States are under the obligation to investigate allegations of torture, independently of where such acts have occurred,” Mr. Nowak said. Special Rapporteurs are unpaid experts serving in an independent personal capacity who receive their mandate from the Commission and report back to it.
OSU junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan (5) encourages Buckeyes fans to make noise during the second half against Indiana on Oct. 8. The Buckeyes won 38-17. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorMomentum is a vital part of success for every team in every sport. A single shift in the intangible force can dictate the outlook of any athletic contest, and the Ohio State football team has depended on momentum to pull out in front of the opposition and stay there for much of this season.Against Tulsa, the Buckeyes were searching for their footing against a nonconference opponent that should have been a cakewalk for a team ranked inside the top 10. Finding themselves up by only three points, OSU was searching for something to shift into another gear.Sure enough, redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker jumped in front of a pass from Tulsa quarterback Dane Evans. Hooker returned the interception for a touchdown, and OSU rolled from then on.Against Oklahoma, after scoring on an early fourth-down conversion attempt, OSU was being pushed back by the Sooner offense. As Baker Mayfield lined-up to lead his team in its own fourth-down attempt, sophomore linebacker Jerome Baker stepped up for the Buckeyes.After Baker returned a 68-yard interception for a touchdown, Oklahoma fired right back with a kickoff return for a touchdown. After regrouping, OSU marched down the field for 89 yards and a rushing touchdown.For the rest of the game, the momentum was on the side of OSU.Even last Saturday, when Indiana was knocking on the door, the Buckeyes rode the high of a big play. This time, redshirt sophomore wide receiver Parris Campbell was the man to push OSU forward.Redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett knew how vital the play was for the rest of the game.“It was a momentum swing,” Barrett said after the game.A 91-yard kickoff return by the Akron, Ohio, native set OSU up for an easy score. The Buckeyes had to go less than 10 yards for a touchdown.Campbell has been making big plays all season on special teams, and had his first breakaway return this year against the Hoosiers. He, too, felt it was the turning point of the game.“Going out onto the field, KOR, I definitely felt like we needed the momentum back,” Campbell said. “Before every kickoff, I go out there and I say a little prayer: ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ I knew we need momentum … so I had to step up.”Big plays and feeding off back-to-back scores have been vital to the success of OSU. Last year, especially against Michigan State, the team struggled to string together plays to keep momentum on its side.This year, the Buckeyes are a different unit. The team is feeding off the key plays of other units, and keeps up the pressure when there’s an opening. In every game this year, OSU has scored a touchdown in the final two minutes of the half.For OSU coach Urban Meyer, momentum shifts can lift a team up and keep them rolling.“(Campbell’s return) was a huge play in the game,” Meyer said. “Anytime you take a sense of momentum into the locker room, that creates a little more positive energy as you come out the second half.”Without some of the plays that have put games firmly in the grasp of the Buckeyes, the season could be very different for OSU.With seven more conference games ahead for OSU, No. 8 Wisconsin up next, momentum will once again be key if the team hopes to keep a perfect record.
Serena Williams talks with referee Brian Earley during the women’s final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament against Naomi Osaka, of Japan, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in New York. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)NEW YORK (AP) — Serena Williams thought she was treated more harshly by the chair umpire in the U.S. Open final than a man would have been.Williams was cited by official Carlos Ramos for three code violations during her 6-2, 6-4 loss to Naomi Osaka on Saturday: for getting coaching signals; for breaking her racket, which cost her a point; and for calling the chair umpire a thief, which cost her a game.“I’ve seen other men call other umpires several things. I’m here fighting for women’s rights and for women’s equality and for all kinds of stuff. For me to say ‘thief,’ and for him to take a game, it made me feel like it was a sexist remark. He’s never taken a game from a man because they said ‘thief,’” Williams said at her news conference.“For me, it blows my mind,” Williams said. “But I’m going to continue to fight for women.”Earlier, as Williams pleaded her case on court with tournament referee Brian Earley, calling the penalties unfair, she said: “Because you’re a woman, you’re going to take this away from me?”“There’s a lot of men out here that have said a lot of things,” Williams said, “and because they are men , that doesn’t happen.”Two-time Australian Open champion and two-time U.S. Open runner-up Victoria Azarenka backed up Williams’ stance, writing on Twitter : “If it was men’s match, this wouldn’t happen like this. It just wouldn’t”Billie Jean King, who won 12 Grand Slam singles titles and helped found the women’s tennis tour and pave the way for equal prize money in the sport, also commented via Twitter on what happened Saturday.“Several things went very wrong during” the match, King wrote. “Coaching on every point should be allowed in tennis. It isn’t, and as a result, a player was penalized for the actions of her coach. This should not happen.”In a second tweet, King said: “When a woman is emotional, she’s ‘hysterical’ and she’s penalized for it. When a man does the same, he’s ‘outspoken’ & and there are no repercussions. Thank you (Serena Williams) for calling out this double standard. More voices are needed to do the same.”There have been a series of recent happenings that illustrate the ways in which tennis does do things differently for men and women.Just before the U.S. Open, the French tennis federation president said that the black catsuit worn this year by Williams at the French Open would not be allowed at that tournament in the future. During the U.S. Open, a female player, Alize Cornet, was incorrectly admonished by a chair umpire for changing her shirt during a match, which is allowed — and which men do all the time. And the U.S. Tennis Association created a new rule last week that allows for a 10-minute break in men’s matches when the heat and humidity are too harsh; previously, only women were given that chance for a delay.“I just feel like the fact that I have to go through this is just an example for the next person that has emotions, and that want to express themselves, and want to be a strong woman. They’re going to be allowed to do that because of today,” Williams said. “Maybe it didn’t work out for me, but it’s going to work out for the next person.”
Cesar Azpilicueta has recently admitted that even if Chelsea were indeed to win the FA Cup this season, this would not make up for their terrible performance throughout the whole season.The Blues’ defender was the one to net the single goal for his team on Sunday, when they were facing West Ham. This has put Chelsea ten points off the top four in the Premier League and is their fifth win in their last 20 games.“The FA Cup is a massive trophy with a lot of history but it’s not enough for us,” Azpilicueta claimed, according to the Mirror.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 will try to win it but the cup will not save our season.”“To get a draw at home in another London derby is really frustrating for all of us and all of the fans. We are not happy,” he added, addressing the game against West Ham.“What matters is the score at the end, I am frustrated today, we should be able to win this game.”

International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde will face trial in France on Monday over a huge state payout case to a business tycoon during her tenure as the French finance minister.An Agence France-Presse (AFP) report said Lagarde allegedly mishandled a dispute with Bernard Tapie, the former owner of sportswear giant Adidas, during her term as finance minister, which resulted in payment of massive $427 million compensation to the business tycoon by the state. He has since been asked to repay the amount after a lengthy court battle.The IMF chief, however, denied the charges of negligence arguing that she had acted “in the state’s interest.” If found guilty, Lagarde could receive a one-year prison sentence along with $15,900 fine, the report said. She will be tried by the Court of Justice of the Republic, a tribunal that hears cases against ministers.Meanwhile, the case threatens the credibility of IMF, whose last three managing directors have faced trials. It also poses risk to the image of 60-year-old Lagarde, who has a stellar career progression from a former corporate lawyer to the finance minster of France to head the world’s most powerful funding agency — IMF.According to the report, Tapie, who owned Adidas between 1990-1993, had accused a state bank of defrauding him in his sale of the sportswear firm and was fighting a legal battle against the state. On becoming finance minister in 2007 under Nicolas Sarkozy, Lagarde had ordered that Tapie’s long-running battle with the state be resolved by arbitration.Investigators suspected that the arbitration process was rigged in favour of Tapie, who had supported Sarkozy in his 2007 presidential election campaign. Although Lagarde was not accused of being personally benefited from the decision, she had been criticised for failing to challenge the huge payout award in favour of Tapie.
.An estimated 370,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees have fled to Bangladesh to escape violence in neighboring Myanmar since late August, a spokeswoman for the UN refugee agency, Vivian Tan, said on Tuesday.At least 457,000 hungry and traumatized refugees have sought refuge in Bangladesh since October 2016. They have joined many thousands of refugees from previous violent episodes in Myanmar.Here are details gathered from UN sources working in the Cox’s Bazar district of Bangladesh, on the Myanmar border, where many of the refugees end up.- The jump in the number of arrivals from Sunday to Monday was fueled by the movement of many refugees from so-called transit sites into new settlement areas, where they are counted.- Authorities have been broadcasting messages along crowded roads telling people to move to a proposed camp at a settlement called Kutupalong.- An area of about 1,500 acres (607 hectares) to 2,000 acres (809 hectares), north of Kutupalong, has been set aside for new arrivals.- A survey to identify children aged 4 to 14 has been started, so as to enroll them in learning centers.- People, in particular, children, are becoming susceptible to waterborne diseases due to an acute shortage of clean water and sanitation facilities, as well as the common cold and fever.- Facilities are improving gradually, for example, two 5,000-litre (1,100-gallon) water tanks have been installed at a settlement called Unchiprang.- Some rice is now being distributed, in addition to high-energy biscuits.- The World Food Programme (WFP) has provided more than 68,800 people with high-energy biscuits since Aug. 27 as they arrive seeking shelter in Cox’s Bazar.- About 77,600 people have received warm meals through community kitchens run by aid agency Action Contre la Faim. These kitchens provide meals for about 5,300 people a day.- The WFP is especially concerned about women and children arriving hungry and malnourished. Nearly 3,000 pregnant women, new mothers and children under five have received a special, high-nutrient porridge made of wheat and soya flour.- Some families have taken children out of school, fearing they will get lost in the throng of people, but teachers are trying to reassure them.

Legends of Tomorrow continues to be the perfect palate cleanser after a not-so-great episode of The Flash. It remembers how to have fun, even when its story turns a little dark. Now, it’s even doing the alternate universe thing better. Remember how Flashpoint lasted a single episode before Barry returned things to mostly-normal? Well, now Legends has Doomworld, and it looks like we’re stuck here for a while.The Legion of Doom activated the Spear of Destiny at the end of the last episode, and this week’s throws us right into the middle of the reality they created. Sara and Amaya are chasing down a costumed superhero in Star City. Who is it? Surprise! Felicity from Arrow has put on a suit. As cool as it is to see Felicity get into the action, it doesn’t last long. Sara and Amaya catch her and take her to see the mayor. As you might have guessed, Oliver isn’t the mayor in this reality. It’s Damian Darhk. Sara and Amaya now work for him. Following his orders, they kill this version of Felicity. (Don’t worry, she’s still alive in Arrow‘s universe.)Despite the Legion having won, not everyone in the group is entirely happy with the outcome. Darhk and Malcolm Merlyn have noticed that Eobard Thawne got his ideal world, and hasn’t given them everything they want. Worse yet, he’s holding onto the spear and destroyed the book that taught him how to use it. The Legends are all still alive at Rory’s insistence, but they all work for the Legion now. Sara and Amaya are henchmen for Darhk. Martin is a scientist working on some kind of project for Thawne. Jax is his harsh, overbearing supervisor. Ray cleans toilets.Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom (Photo: Dean Buscher/The CW)It’s not long before Rory grows tired of all this. He and Snart can rob banks with no risk. The cops just stand by and let them go. With no chase and Snart owning all the banks, the life of crime is boring. He also doesn’t like being summoned to meet with Thawne. During the meeting, we see Nate run into the Thawne’s office claiming to have seen scars in reality. He figures out that this reality isn’t right, but doesn’t realize Thawne is the one responsible. Thawne orders Snart and Rory to kill him, but Rory refuses. He decide’s he’s had enough of this reality and brings Nate to Ray’s apartment to figure things out. Luckily, Ray has stolen a gun from Thawne’s lab that can restore people’s memories. Yes, it’s a huge plot convenience, but we had to get the Legends back somehow. It also leads to a great running gag where, upon regaining their memories, each Legend immediately punches Rory in the face.Eventually, they’re able to restore everyone’s memories (but not their powers) except for Martin, whose been locked away in his lab until Thawne’s project is finished. The Legends figure out that Thawne is having Martin build a device that can destroy the Spear of Destiny. That would make the Doomworld reality permanent. They infiltrate the lab and Jax try to restore Martin’s memory. Unfortunately, Martin thinks Jax is trying to kill him and destroys the gun. He also triggers a silent alarm and Thawne comes running. Martin’s device is finished, and Thawne is about to destroy the spear. Fortunately, Rory has told the rest of the Legion of Doom about Thawne’s plan.Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Photo: Dean Buscher/The CW)The Legion shows up, and a massive fight ensues over the spear. The fights in this episode have all been fantastic, but this tops them all. The camera follows the spear as it gets tossed among the Legends, each fighting a member of the Legion. There’s a great comedic moment where Nate and Darhk work together to knock Thawne away from the spear and almost high five. Then, they remember they’re enemies and Darhk punches Nate. The spear ends up in Rory’s hands, and Snart assumes he’ll turn it over to the Legion again. Realizing he’ll never be anything more than a dog to Snart, he redeems himself and gives it to Amaya.This is where the episode takes a serious and fairly shocking turn. Amaya begins to use the spear to undo reality, but Snart freezes her with his cold gun. He then walks over to her and tips her frozen body over. Amaya shatters into pieces, killing her instantly. Doomworld just became much more dangerous. As everyone stares in shock, Thawne wakes up, grabs the spear and destroys it. Doomworld is permanent. Sara brings up the possibility of the Legends and Legion working together to defeat Thawne, which would make for a great season finale. Thawne says seeing them try and fail would be more satisfying than killing them all now and lets them go. It’s another instance of a solution being too easy this week, but we have to get to the season finale somehow.Maisie Richardson- Sellers as Amaya Jiwe/Vixen (Photo: Dean Buscher/The CW)The team regroups in Nate’s mom’s basement, and Sara comes up with an idea. They travel back in time and stop Thawne from getting the spear. They’ll risk time folding in on itself, but at this point, there’s no choice. They just need a time machine. Fortunately, Rip Hunter is still in the Waverider. He’s been drinking heavily and making beautiful cakes, but Gideon has been rerouting enough power to allow Rip to make a distress call. Rip snaps out of his depression and starts acting like a captain again.Things worked out a little too easy for the Legends this week. As fun an episode as it was, it was a little unbelievable that Ray just happened to steal a device that would give them their memories back. Likewise, Thawne just letting everyone go didn’t seem to happen for any reason other than we need to have an episode next week. Despite those two problems, Legends of Tomorrow still turned in a good episode. Not the best it’s ever had, but good nonetheless. It was nice to see them raise the stakes with Amaya’s apparent death and the destruction of the spear. They’ve managed to make an alternate universe matter in a way no other DC show has. On top of that, they’ve set us up for an exciting season finale next week. Although, with how good this half of the season’s been, I almost wish it didn’t have to end so soon.

The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. Related Content June 19, 2015 – Carestream and UBMD Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are conducting clinical studies on a new three-dimensional medical imaging system at the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) for use in treating orthopedic conditions. These studies will help guide Carestream’s development of new cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems with the goal of providing orthopedic solutions for hospitals, clinics and sports medicine providers that use less radiation than traditional CT; are compact and affordable; and could be used in a wide range of facilities.Physicians from UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine – all experts in caring for patients with musculoskeletal problems – are working with Carestream researchers to explore the benefits of using CBCT technology for capturing images of patient extremities (knees, legs, feet, arms and hands). Musculoskeletal diseases affect more than one out of every two persons in the United States age 18 and over, and nearly three out of four age 65 and over.With new digital CBCT technology, healthcare providers can acquire otherwise unavailable weight-bearing images of knees, legs and feet, which are of particular interest to orthopedic and sports medicine specialists. The CBCT system used in this study is investigational and not available for commercial sale. The two organizations plan to broaden their collaboration at a later date to study the advantages of digital imaging technology in treating other extremity conditions.The Erie County Medical Center is an advanced regional medical center and major teaching facility of the University at Buffalo. A member of the Great Lakes Health System of Western New York, ECMC is the Adult Regional Trauma Center and operates 602 licensed beds located in Buffalo, New York.”We think the novel capabilities of the Carestream CBCT scanner have broad application to the basic science and clinical practice of orthopedics and sports medicine. We are launching an initial clinical study that may help surgeons more accurately and objectively diagnose the degree of instability of the patella (knee cap),” explained John Marzo, M.D., a physician with UBMD Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, associate professor of clinical orthopaedics, School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo, and former medical director, Buffalo Bills.”A second collaborative project will validate the ability of the CBCT scanner to measure contact area inside the knee joint, which will be valuable in a host of clinical situations. We have several other projects in various stages of development to be performed over the next 2-3 years that establish a mutually beneficial relationship with Carestream Health,” Marzo added.

In a bid to restore Egypt’s tourism image, Egypt’s minister of tourism said he has invited a number of Hollywood stars including Oprah Winfrey to hold shows at Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Minister Adbel Nour said during a press conference that he would not allow Egypt to turn into a cheap tourist destination with low cost programs following the political turmoil that troubled the country last month, Al-Masry Al-Youm reported. Starting with Italian travellers, the Minister said other part of the campaign will require the recruitment of Facebook users to publicise Egypt as a tourism destination and invite international travellers to visit the country. Airlines will also play a role in the future of the country’s tourism, with EgyptAir increasing its 23 flights per week to Italy starting from 17 March this year. Mr Nour added that he and his ministry would follow up on its campaign and will attend tourism exhibitions and conferences to promote the glamour of the country’s pro-democracy revolution.

Categories: Frederick News,News 07Sep Rep. Frederick joined at Sept. 11 ceremony by local first responders PHOTO INFORMATION: State Rep. Ben Frederick, of Owosso, today was joined by Durand Police Chief Jason Hartz and Michigan Department of Corrections Officer Ray Sholtz of Marion Springs as his guests for the Michigan House’s annual Sept. 11 Memorial Service at the Capitol. The ceremony remembers first responders and members of the military from Michigan who died in the line of duty in the past year.
Categories: LaSata News,News State Reps. Klint Kesto and Kim LaSata today sent a letter to Michigan State University seeking information related to the school’s inquiries into sexual assault allegations against former MSU physician Larry Nassar.The letter requested all information be received by 5 p.m. on Feb. 9, 2018.“Nassar’s victims continued to come forward in open court over six days to detail how they were violated and now it’s time for Michigan State to come clean,” said Kesto, chair of the House Law and Justice Committee. “MSU’s response to this case has been beyond disappointing, especially with the incredible responsibility they have to their students. We must see with our own eyes what failures may have taken place in order to come up with the policy solutions to prevent these heinous acts from ever happening again.”Rep. LaSata, chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Higher Education, said: “One of our state’s flagship universities has failed to protect its students in the most basic way from sexual assault and it is incumbent upon us to find out why. We must demand more transparency and accountability from our institutions. This state’s residents, the tens of thousands of students and especially the victims deserve better.”Specifically, the letter requested reports “initiated, completed or issued” by MSU pertaining to allegations made in 2014-2017 against Nassar.The request comes a day after Lou Anna K. Simon submitted her resignation as MSU president, the state House passed a resolution calling for Simon’s resignation or removal as president, and Nassar was sentenced to up 175 years in prison for his crimes against more than 150 victims.“Ms. Simon’s resignation was the necessary first step in what will be a long healing process. Yet more must be done to achieve the transparency and long-term reforms the victims deserve,” LaSata said. “This review will look at how the university addressed the accusations against Larry Nassar and what can done to make it better.”The letter, signed by LaSata and Kesto, states “it is our sincere hope that the University will cooperate with our request and inquiries without the need to employ means of compulsion.”“We don’t want to issue a subpoena, but House Speaker Tom Leonard has tasked us to use every available option to gather this information,” Kesto said. “The silence from Michigan State University on this case has been insulting to the victims, their families and the people of the state of Michigan. They deserve to know the truth.”##### 25Jan Reps. Kesto, LaSata launch inquiry into MSU
