WATCH: Chris Carson Scores Go-Ahead Touchdown in Win over K-State

first_imgOklahoma State fell behind by as many as 9 points with 12:21 remaining in the fourth quarter against K-State on Saturday, but showed tenacity and grit to power their way to a 6 point win on the road.After an 82-yard bomb from Rudolph to James Washington with 7:45 left, the Cowboys found themselves knocking on the door once again from the 17-yard line down two points in the midst of a methodical four-minute drive. And when Chris Carson had his number called, he answered the bell with a monstrous 17-yard run to PUT THE TEAM ON HIS BACK! It was ultimately the go-ahead score for the Pokes and one of the biggest moments of Carsons Oklahoma State career. If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Wonder of the Cricketing World Wishes pour in for Dhoni on 38th

first_imgLeeds: Cricketers past and present, apart from the legions of his fans from all walks of life, wished Mahendra Singh Dhoni on his 38th birthday, drowning the recent wave of criticism around the veteran’s approach to batting. Dhoni, who turned a year older Sunday, shook a leg with daughter Ziva in the presence of wife Sakshi as his teammates, in his preferred minimalist manner, celebrated the reverential figure’s birthday. A day after present captain Virat Kohli and bowling star Jasprit Bumrah shared their fondness for Dhoni, former opener Virender Sehwag posted a heartfelt tweet.

Very few people understand the meaning of trust and respect and I’m glad to have had the friendship I have with you for so many years. You’ve been a big brother to all of us and as I said before, you will always be my captain,” he tweeted.

Mohammad Kaif said, “First played together in Bangladesh in 2004 & shortly saw him announce his arrival against Pak at Vizag when he scored 148, hasn’t looked back since and the legend of MS Dhoni has only grown by the year.

BC documents on Highway of Tears open wounds as missing women inquiry

first_imgThe Canadian PressVictoria — The small British Columbia Cheslatta Carrier Nation has a decades-long anguished relationship with Highway 16, or the so-called Highway of Tears.Five people from the community of less than 350 near Burns Lake in central B.C. have disappeared along the route, including an entire family of four, says Chief Corrina Leween.At least 18 women went missing or were murdered along Highway 16 and the adjacent Highways 97 and 5 since the 1970s. Most cases remain unsolved, though investigators don’t believe a single killer is responsible.The sorrow deepened recently with a damning report over deleted Transportation Ministry emails about the highway and its missing.Transportation Minister Todd Stone has insisted that locals don’t want a bus service, but recently released documents highlighting the concerns of local officials and contradict the minister.The controversy could be swept up in a call by the federal Liberal government for an inquiry into Canada’s murdered and missing women. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised the inquiry during the election campaign.“I would expect that because a number of women have gone missing, and or have been known to have been murdered along Highway 16, that Highway 16 will figure in the national inquiry,” said Stone. “Our government has been on the record for quite some time in supporting a national inquiry.”B.C.’s Attorney General Suzanne Anton said she also expects an inquiry would focus on the highway.“I’m not trying to second-guess the federal inquiry, but there probably will be an aspect about the north all across the country,” she said.An RCMP report last year stated nearly 1,200 Indigenous women were murdered or went missing between 1980 and 2012.Highway 16 stretches more than 700 kilometres between Prince George and Prince Rupert. It follows rivers and mountains and connects remote communities. Its route is dark, lonely and blood stained.“Within (our) community, we have had an entire family that went missing, the Jack family,” said Leween. “One of our elders is missing.”Casimel Jack, 70, was last seen a decade ago, walking along a road that connects to Highway 16 south of Burns Lake. He was hunting and carrying a rifle when he disappeared Sept. 18, 2005.Ronald Jack, his wife, Doreen, and their two sons, Russell, 9, and Ryan, 4, vanished Aug. 1, 1989. The last anybody heard from the family was when Ronald called a family member from a Prince George pub to say he and his wife found jobs.“They just simply disappeared. Mom, dad and the two boys,” Leween said.She said successive B.C. governments have refused to move on First Nations’ requests to provide a regional transportation network. Leween described government consultations attempts as sophisticated stalling tactics.“I, as a leader, don’t feel the government is doing enough to addresses the issue,” she said.Leween rejected Stone’s claim that leaders across the north agree a large-scale transit service won’t work.“It’s absolutely untrue,” she said. “The bus is desperately needed in our area. I go to Prince George quite often to meetings and I see the young women hitchhiking on that highway. It’s needed.”Stone said the government is looking to develop shorter transportation connections between communities, but a region-wide transportation service is not workable.“It’s difficult for many folks to comprehend, myself included, how a scheduled shuttle bus service across an 800 kilometre stretch of highway that’s very sparsely populated would meet the needs of people who live along the highway,” he said.Stone said his ministry is holding a transportation symposium in Smithers Nov. 24 to discuss practical, affordable and sustainable solutions for communities along Highway 16.Opposition New Democrat Jennifer Rice, whose North Coast riding includes a section of Highway 16, said she has not been invited to the symposium but plans to attend.“I’ve been here (in Victoria) two years, and I’ve been asking this question numerous times around improving the transportation and safety along Highway 16, and I’ve been shrugged off and told basically to move on and get a new idea,” she said.Rice said two years ago when she accidentally locked herself out of her car on a stretch of the highway she felt the chill of being alone in the middle of nowhere.“I was in a pull out, and I had no cell service and I was the only one there,” she said.“I had just come back from Victoria and I had been asking questions about the Highway of Tears. Then this happened to me,” she said. “I felt extremely vulnerable.”last_img read more

Kejriwal slapped by man in roadshow AAP accuses BJP

first_imgNew Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was slapped by a man during a roadshow in Moti Nagar in the New Delhi constituency, prompting a strong reaction from the AAP which alleged the BJP was behind the “cowardly act”. Police said the man has been taken into the custody and an investigation into the matter is underway.

He said the BJP could not break the morale of Kejriwal and could not defeat him in elections in five years despite putting in all its might. “Now you want him removed form your way like this. You cowards! This Kejriwal is your end,” he said in a tweet in Hindi. AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj too alleged that the BJP might be behind the attack and asserted the incident would not deter the spirit of the party. “Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal got attacked during the roadshow.

Supermarket X could have infected thousands with pig virus

first_imgThe strain of the virus is not carried in pork from the UKCredit: NICOLAS ASFOURI The strain of the virus is not carried in pork from the UK However, sources told the Sunday Times that the supermarket involved was Tesco. When questioned  by The Daily Telegraph, the supermarket giant said it would not be able to comment on the allegations specifically.A spokeswoman for the retailer added: “We work very closely with the FSA and PHE to make sure customers can be confident in the safety and quality of the food they buy. 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.center_img “This particular research was carried out six years ago on a small number of people, and although it provided no direct link between specific products and hepatitis E we always take care to review research findings such as this.“Food quality is really important to us and we have in place an expert team to ensure the highest possible standards at every stage of our supply chain, as well as providing clear information to customers on how to handle and cook pork in the home to minimise the risk of hepatitis E.”The FSA said that they were aware of the findings and “reviewing all aspects of hepatitis E” with other government departments and industry. Thousands of people may have been put at risk of contracting Hepatitis E from pork products sold at a leading supermarket. The virus, which can cause liver cirrhosis and neurological damage, could have infected up to 200,000 people in the UK each year from 2014 to 2014, according to a Public Health England (PHE) report.By tracing the habits of those infected, the study concluded that only “Supermarket X” was significantly associated with Hepatitis E (HEV), in particular own brand sausages. Only pork products from Europe, mainly Holland and Germany, and not the UK carry the strain.Both PHE and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have declined to name the supermarket in question.A spokesman from PHE said: “We clearly state in the paper that the association with the supermarket does not infer any blame.“If it was thought there was an immediate public health threat or available preventative measures, we would have taken action.”last_img read more

Snowden insists Russia has no access to NSA files

first_imgNSA WHISTLEBLOWER EDWARD Snowden has said that he did not take any secret documents with him to Russia and insisted that that Russian intelligence agencies do not have access to them.In an interview with The New York Times, Snowden that he gave all the documents he obtained to journalists he met in Hong Kong, before flying to Moscow where he was subsequently granted asylum for one year.The former NSA contractor did not take the documents with him “because it wouldn’t serve the public interest,” Snowden told the Times.“What would be the unique value of personally carrying another copy of the materials onward?”Snowden also insisted he was able to protect the documents from China’s spy services because he was familiar with that country’s intelligence capabilities through his work as an NSA contractor.In his job, he had targeted Chinese operations and taught a course on Chinese cyber-counterintelligence.“There’s a zero percent chance the Russians or Chinese have received any documents,” he said.The interview took place last week over several days through encrypted online communications.US officials and critics of Snowden have expressed concern that the documents in his possession could have fallen into the hands of Russian, Chinese or other potentially hostile foreign intelligence agencies.Snowden, however, insisted the NSA knew he had not cooperated with Russian or Chinese spies.“NSA has not offered a single example of damage from the leaks. They haven’t said boo about it except ‘we think,’ ‘maybe,’ ‘have to assume’ from anonymous and former officials,”Snowden added.“Not ‘China is going dark.’ Not ‘the Chinese military has shut us out.’”Snowden also said he never considered defecting while in Hong Kong or Russia. He said his decision to leak secret documents evolved gradually, and that his doubts about intelligence agencies dated back to his time working for the CIA in Geneva.He said he clashed with a senior manager when he tried to warn the CIA about a vulnerability in its personnel web applications.The episode convinced him that trying to work through the system would only lead to punishment.The 30-year-old, who faces espionage charges over his  leaks, defended his disclosures as serving the country’s interests by sparking a public debate and informing the public about secret surveillance.“So long as there’s broad support amongst a people, it can be argued there’s a level of legitimacy even to the most invasive and morally wrong program, as it was an informed and willing decision,” Snowden said.“However, programs that are implemented in secret, out of public oversight, lack that legitimacy, and that’s a problem.“It also represents a dangerous normalization of ‘governing in the dark,’ where decisions with enormous public impact occur without any public input.”The NSA was not immediately available to comment on Snowden’s interview.Additional reporting by © – AFPColumn: The drama surrounding Manning and Snowden is diverting attention from what matters >Read: Edward Snowden’s father to visit his son in Russia >Read: Edward Snowden has – finally – been allowed to leave Moscow airport >last_img read more

Two men escape after ditching light aircraft in Lough Erne

Amazon reminds us you dont own whats on your Kindle

first_imgAmazon has been selling us the Kindle e-reader since 2007 and millions of us have happily picked one up and started filling it with ebooks. The device is just so convenient, can be read in daylight, and can store hundreds of books in a space less than the size of a typical paperback novel.The Kindle Best Price at Amazon is great, but it is also a device typically full of content you don’t actually own. A couple of days ago Amazon reminded one customer of this fact by closing her Amazon account and wiping all the Amazon-purchased ebooks from here Kindle without warning or explanation.The plight of the woman in question, known as Linn, has been brought to our attention by her friend and blogger Martin Bekkelund. Linn sent several emails to Amazon’s customer services trying to figure out what she had done wrong, but Amazon refused to explain why she is effectively now banned from ever using the e-tailer’s services again.The only feedback Linn received was that her account had been, “directly related to another which has been previously closed for abuse of our policies.” That was the end of the explanation and further enquiries were just met with, “we will not be able to offer any additional insight or action on these matters.”Linn has been left with no course of action to take other than an expensive legal battle. Amazon won’t tell her what happened, they’ve taken away all the content she legally purchased, and blocked access to any and all products Amazon sells.There are several major issues with this chain of events and the actions Amazon took. Linn should not be left in the dark as to what she is supposed to have done wrong. It shouldn’t be the case that a company can wipe a device you own of content you purchased. It also shouldn’t be possible to ban someone completely from a service without an appropriate system be in place to ensure this isn’t a mistake.Ultimately, this shows Amazon doesn’t care if an individual is guilty or not. The system in place to deal with this kind of situation is clearly inadequate and prone to getting things wrong (we don’t know for sure if this is a mistake or not because Amazon won’t explain why they took the action they did), and the laws that allow Amazon to do this really need to be reviewed.Update: And since writing this it seems Amazon has restored her account and all her books. However, they haven’t corresponded with Linn at all, so she still has no idea what happened and why. This could happen to anyone, and I fear it’s only because of the coverage Linn’s situation got that Amazon took notice.Read the full correspondence between Linn and Amazon at Martin Bekkelund’s blog.last_img read more

Opérée pour une mastectomie elle se réveille avec des implants mammaires quelle

first_imgOpérée pour une mastectomie, elle se réveille avec des implants mammaires qu’elle n’a pas demandésOpérée en octobre 2014 pour une double mastectomie préventive, une femme de 44 ans a eu la mauvaise surprise à son réveil de découvrir que deux prothèses mammaires lui avaient été implantées sans son consentement. Quatre ans plus tard, elle a attaqué en justice l’Hôpital Great Western, qui se trouve à Swindon, en Angleterre. « J’étais choquée, très contrariée et frustrée puisque cela n’était pas du tout prévu », confie au Daily Mail. Donna Finegan-White. Et on peut comprendre cette femme de 44 ans, originaire du Wilshire, en Grande Bretagne qui s’est réveillée d’une anesthésie générale avec deux implants mammaires qu’elle n’avait jamais demandés. Récit des faits Une erreur médicale aux conséquences graves Il y a 4 ans, la quadragénaire prend la décision de subir une double mastectomie préventive. Plusieurs femmes de sa famille ont eu un cancer du sein dont sa mère qui a été diagnostiqué à l’âge de 50 ans mais qui en a guéri et l’une de ses tantes qui en est décédée. Ses antécédents familiaux représentent un facteur de risque pour sa propre santé et Donna Finegan-White sait qu’elle est une patiente éligible pour une mastectomie prophylactique. C’est donc en toute confiance et conscience qu’elle se rend à l’Hôpital Great Western de Swindon où elle réside pour subir cette intervention. Mais les choses ne se sont pas complètement déroulées comme prévues. « Je pensais sortir de cette opération libérée du risque d’avoir un cancer du sein et sans implants mammaires, comme convenu. Pourtant, je me suis réveillée avec des prothèses permanentes pour lesquelles je n’avais jamais donné mon accord lors des consultations avec le chirurgien ». Des implants qui, en plus de ne pas avoir été demandés, ne ressemblent même pas à ses seins naturels qui lui ont été retirés. Beaucoup plus gros, ils sont douloureux et enflés. Une souffrance qui oblige Donna Finegan-White à consulter médicalement et psychologiquement les années qui ont suivi l’intervention.L’hôpital poursuivi en justiceFinalement en 2016, l’Anglaise se fait retirer les deux implants squatteurs mais apprend qu’elle doit subir une nouvelle intervention en urgence afin d’éliminerun caillot sanguin qui s’est développé lors de cette procédure et qui met sa vie en danger.  « En remettant son sort entre les mains expertes du personnel médical, on leur fait preuve d’une grande confiance. Je me suis sentie trahie et très en colère après les soins que j’ai reçus », confie Donna qui a donc choisi de poursuivre en justice le groupe hospitalier Great Western qui dépend du système de la santé publique du Royaume Uni.  L’hôpital a nié avoir agi avec négligence mais a reconnu que l’absence du consentement n’était « pas conforme aux normes »À lire aussiCancer : définition, causes, types, qu’est-ce que c’est ?. Un arrangement a finalement été trouvé entre les deux parties et d’après le Daily Mail, la victime aurait perçu 10.000 Livres Sterling  (environ 11.452 euros) en guise de dédommagement. Seulement voilà, en mars dernier, une forme rare de cancer a été détectée dans la trachée de la mère de deux enfants.

Kids get the real dirt at Fort Vancouver

first_imgThere will be Kids Dig activities on each of the next two Saturdays; see http://nps.gov/fova or call 360-816-6230 for details.Landry Smith is interested in dirt, the Army and anything that can blow anything up, said his mom, Betsy Smith. On Saturday, the 9-year-old Vancouver boy got to spend a good deal of time in the dirt and even helped uncover part of an old grenade shell and other artifacts at the Fort Vancouver National Site.Smith was one of eight or so kids who showed up at the fort for a mock archaeology dig on Saturday morning.The program teaches kids what archaeology is — the study of things made, modified and left behind by humans — and why it is important, said Mike Twist, park guide at Fort Vancouver.Kids took turns digging, sifting through soil, bagging artifacts and documenting what was found. Each dig site was prepared by Rangers with real artifacts placed in layers representing different time periods at the fort site. The deeper the layer, the farther back in time.“Think of layers in time as being the layers in a cake,” Twist told the kids. The ground they were standing on would be the frosting, he said.last_img read more
