(AP Photo/Tom Gannam)THIS WEEK SAW the incredible rescue of three women who had been kidnapped and held in a home in Cleveland, Ohio, for almost 10 years.The families of Amanda Berry (27), Georgina ‘Gina’ DeJesus (23) and Michelle Knight (32) might not have given up hope, but the chance that they would see the three young women again were slim.Against all odds, Berry was able to attract the attention of a neighbour on the Cleveland street where she had been held captive, through a gap in a locked door. That one brave action led to her fellow captives being found, and released into the arms of their families.A man, Ariel Castro – a school bus-driver and father – has been charged in connection with the women’s kidnap and rape.But the Cleveland trio are not the only kidnap victims to have defied the odds and managed to escape from confinement. Here are five stories of others who made miraculous escapes.Jaycee DugardJaycee Lee Dugard, who went missing in 1991. Pic: AP Photo/Nick Ut,FileEighteen years. That’s how long Jaycee Lee Dugard was missing and held captive for. Her kidnappers were a couple, Phillip and Nancy Garrido, who kept her locked up in their home after zapping her with a stun gun and whisking her off a South Lake Tahoe street.What made her 1991 abduction even more shocking was that it happened in front of her stepfather, as she walked to a school bus at age 11.Nancy and Phillip Garrido before the start of their hearing in court.

On a subsequent visit to a parole office, Phillip brought Dugard with him. She was questioned by police, and after some time, told the authorities her true identity.Phillip Garrido, 60, a serial sex offender, was ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison and his wife, Nancy, 55, was given a 36-year sentence.March 9, 2012, Oprah Winfrey presents Jaycee Dugard with a DVF Award at The Third Annual DVF Awards held at the United Nations in New York.

During her captivity, Smart was raped, forced to drink alcohol and abused.Elizabeth Smart arrives at the federal court house for the closing arguments in the trial of Brian David Mitchell.

The police did not follow up this lead thoroughly, the parents argued, but after a drawing of ‘Emmanuel’ appeared on America’s Most Wanted, Mitchell’s family recognised his face and contacted the authorities.Nine months after the abduction, Mitchell was spotted in Sandy, Utah, by a biker who had seen America’s Most Wanted. He alerted police, and Smart (who was wearing a disguise), was found while walking with Mitchell, and reunited with her family.Mitchell was sentenced to life in prison in 2011.

Gradually, she was given more and more freedom, even being able to go into the garden and at one point going on a skiing trip that lasted a few hours.At the age of 18, in 2006, Kampusch was vacuuming Přiklopil’s BMW when he took a phone call – and she took her chance to make an escape.Kampusch is escorted by police after she was found in Deutsch Wagram north of Vienna, 23 August 2006.

Insulin pump therapy for children put on hold for six months at

September 22, 2019

first_imgThe organisation said that the suspension is causing “great distress to the 600 families attending OLCH who are living 24 hours a day with Type 1 diabetes”.Dr Anna Clarke said that it could result in an increased workload on higher paid staff, in turn resulting in more costs.Conventional therapyThe hospital stressed that patients currently awaiting pump therapy are instead being supported on conventional insulin therapy plans.“One [nurse] has been replaced and one is in the process of being replaced,” a spokesperson for the hospital said, but it may take up to six months for the nurses to be become proficient in the therapy.One parent of a child due to receive the treatment said this latest delay adds to the two years they have been waiting for the treatment.“They keep moving the goalposts when it comes to her blood-sugar levels,” the mother told TheJournal.ie, “We’re being told the same things all the time. We have to make a seven-hour round-trip to the hospital just to be told we have to come back again in six months.”“Two years”“This has been going on for two years now. We also understood that we had been on the waiting list this entire time, but they only said during the last visit that [my daughter] has only just been added to it.”She added that they “haven’t heard anything” about the service being suspended while training took place.At present, one-in-20 people has diabetes in Ireland, while one-in-eight of people over 60 has diabetes.There are between 3,000 and 4,000 children, adolescents and young adults living with diabetes in Ireland, Diabetes Ireland explains on its website.Read: Portable insulin pumps prove better than insulin injections for type 2 diabetes >More: ‘I went to look at myself in the mirror and I couldn’t see my face’ > PARENTS OF CHILDREN with diabetes have expressed frustration over the suspension of insulin pump therapy at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin.Three nurses are required to operate the service, but the hospital said there has been an “unprecedented absence” of two them.Dr Stephen O’Riordan, clinical lead in Paediatric Diabetes at the hospital, said this shortage of nurses is a crisis.“Mainstay”“Crumlin has been the mainstay of pump therapy nationally for decades,” he explained.“If these centres are not adequately staffed, then any other National initiatives will not succeed.”Diabetes Ireland has described the case of one of the children receiving treatment:The Mulready family planned their year so that their son Darragh could get his pump on July 22nd and be able to self-manage his diabetes for returning to school in September.His mother Trish says “Darragh was devastated that his pump is sitting in a press gathering dust instead of been fitted to him making his life that bit more normal and helping keep his blood glucose levels a lot more stable”.last_img read more

(Photo Credit: atomcentral/YouTube)According to the New York Times, the Upshot-Knothole nuclear test series included several ”dirty” blasts that deposited radioactive debris on the downwind towns. Between May and July of 1953, thousands of sheep — approximately 25 percent of the herds in southern Utah and Nevada — died. The Atomic Energy Commission (A.E.C.), however, issued a press release attributing the deaths to ”unprecedented cold weather.”Between 1951 and 1992 U.S. conducted 928 atmospheric and underground nuclear tests in Nevada, 100 of which were atmospheric, and thus more likely to spread radiation to nearby areas.More on Geek.com:Florida Man Fishes Out WWII Grenade, Drives It to a Taco BellWatch: Sinkhole the Size of Football Field Shuts Down ZooWatch: Avalanche Swallows Cars on Colorado Highway Stay on targetlast_img read more

Hong Kong airport blockade didnt hurt Macau GGR say analysts

September 16, 2019

first_imgMacau’s gross gaming revenue reached MOP$14.8 billion for the first 18 days of August, including a daily rate of around MOP$870 million in the seven days from 12 to 18 August, according to analysts.That figure represents a significant increase on the MOP$750 million to MOP$790 million recorded over the first two weeks of the month, with JP Morgan’s DS Kim, Jeremy An and Christine Wang noting this was “despite ongoing social unrest in Hong Kong, hence supporting our view that it’s probably more bark than bite when it comes to actual GGR impact.” JP Morgan said volumes in both VIP and mass improved last week, although soft VIP luck keeps its August GGR forecast at a year-on-year decline of between 4% and 6%.Sanford C Bernstein’s Vitaly Umansky, Eunice Lee and Kelsey Zhu also note that “GGR came back strong last week just before summer holidays are about to wrap up,” pushing the average daily rate for the month back up to MOP$822 million – down 4% on August 2018 but 4% better sequentially.“For August, we are estimating GGR growth to be -2% to -4% year-on-year,” they added.“VIP volume is estimated to have improved by mid-to-high single digits % while hold was slightly lighter than normal. Mass also grew at mid-single digits % month-on-month.“Delivering positive growth in August would need to rely on outsized VIP volumes and higher hold – something not in our forecast at this time.” Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts RelatedPosts Big trouble in little China Load More Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in Augustlast_img read more

Flappy Bird is now a competitve MMO

September 1, 2019

first_imgIn the wake of Flappy Bird being taken down from the App Store in a fit of what appeared to be unnecessary drama, roughly one billion clones and variations on the simple game — which in itself is a clone of roughly one billion games that came before it — have sprung up. A new variation on the game is FlapMMO, an online, competitive iteration of suddenly popular game.The basic — and only — mechanic in Flappy Bird is you tap the screen in order to raise the height of a little pixelated bird that automatically moves along a horizontal plane. Navigating the bird through gaps in vertical pipe columns — heavily resembling the warp pipes in Mario games — nets you one point per pipe. The game is quite difficult, but moves and resets quickly enough so the difficulty isn’t a deterrent to trying again.In FlapMMO, you’re in the familiar setting of the mobile game, but you aren’t the only bird. The game is more or less the same, but you’re competing against many other people controlling their own bird, represented all over the map as their own ghostly sprite.The game displays how many people are playing at any given time, as well as the maximum distance (pipes cleared) achieved. FlapMMO still appears to be a work in progress, as the load time is a little unbearable — just open it in a tab, and check back a few minutes later — and the gaps in the pipes were increased to make the game more fun than the difficult mobile progenitor. The server is also being upgraded, so the game may be inaccessible for a little while.You can play the game here, and due to the bigger gaps, see if Flappy Bird is any fun when it’s not based on difficulty.Some users in the comments below are suggesting the game is malware, but we just tested it out again (for science), and also perused the internet a bit in search of the malware claims, but have not turned up anything. The game seems to be malware-free, but this is the internet, so as always: click at your own risk.last_img read more

New slowly evolving Type Ibn supernova discovered

Right: NTT image from August 1.2, 2016 (JD 2457601.74), showing no visible host at the SN location. Credit: Karamehmetoglu et al., 2017. (Phys.org)—An international team of astronomers has detected a new slowly evolving Type Ibn supernova as part of the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE). The new event, designated OGLE-2014-SN-131, has the longest rise time ever observed in Type Ibn supernovae. The discovery is described in a paper published Mar. 23 on the arXiv pre-print server. Type Ibn supernovae are explosions whose spectra are characterized by low-velocity helium emission lines. They are thought to be the core-collapse explosions of massive stars whose ejecta interact with helium-rich circumstellar material. They have also relatively high peak luminosities and are blue at peak.Type Ibn supernovae are usually fast evolving with a short rise to peak brightness (less than two weeks) and a subsequent fast decline. However, a group of researchers led by Emir Karamehmetoglu of the Stockholm University in Sweden has found a new Type Ibn supernova that exhibits an unprecedentedly long rise time and a much broader light curve compared to other supernovae in this class.Karamehmetoglu’s team discovered OGLE-2014-SN-131 on November 11, 2014 using the OGLE-IV Transient Detection System. Afterward, the researchers conducted follow-up photometric observations of this supernova with the OGLE telescope at the Las Campanas Observatory in Chile and with the Gamma-Ray Burst Optical/Near-Infrared Detector (GROND) mounted on the 2.2m MPG/ESO telescope at La Silla, also in Chile. Moreover, they performed spectroscopic observations of OGLE-2014-SN-131 with the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) at La Silla and with the Very Large Telescope (VLT) at Cerro Paranal in Chile.These observations show that OGLE-2014-SN-131 spectroscopically resembles other Type Ibn supernovae such as SN 2010al and showcases also peak luminosity and post-peak colors similar to other events in this class. Notably, however, the light curve of OGLE-2014-SN-131 is broader and longer-rising than any other Type Ibn supernova.”Spectroscopy and multi-band photometry of OGLE14-131 have been presented. Identification of prominent He I emission lines classifies this SN as a Type Ibn. While, spectroscopically, OGLE14-131 is identified as a normal SN Ibn, when compared to other Type Ibn SNe, its broad light curve shows the longest rise time ever observed for this SN class,” the authors write.The researchers try to explain this record-long rise time, noting that it requires higher ejecta and circumstellar material masses for the progenitor when compared to typical supernova Ibn progenitors. Therefore, they concluded that the most likely progenitor scenario for OGLE-2014-SN-131 is a massive Wolf–Rayet star.”To explain the unusually long rise time, the broad light curve, the light curve decline, and the spectra characterized by narrow emission lines, we favor a powering mechanism where the SN ejecta are interacting with a dense curcumstellar material. The progenitor of OGLE-2014-SN-131 was likely a Wolf-Rayet star with a mass greater than that of a typical SN Ibn progenitor, which expelled the circumstellar material that the SN is interacting with,” the team wrote in the paper.The astronomers added that given the fact that OGLE-2014-SN-131 has an unusually massive progenitor for a Type Ibn supernova, we should expect a low number of similar slowly evolving events as such massive stars should be relatively rare. Astronomers discover new gas giant exoplanet More information: OGLE-2014-SN-131: A long-rising Type Ibn supernova from a massive progenitor, arXiv:1703.08222 [astro-ph.HE] arxiv.org/abs/1703.08222AbstractType Ibn supernovae (SNe Ibn) are thought to be the core-collapse explosions of massive stars whose ejecta interact with He-rich circumstellar material (CSM). We report the discovery of a SN Ibn, with the longest rise-time ever observed, OGLE-2014-SN-131. We discuss the potential powering mechanisms and the progenitor nature of this peculiar stripped-envelope (SE), circumstellar-interacting SN. Optical photometry and spectroscopy were obtained with multiple telescopes including VLT, NTT, and GROND. We compare light curves and spectra with those of other known SNe Ibn and Ibc. CSM velocities are derived from the spectral analysis. The SN light curve is modeled under different assumptions about its powering mechanism (56Ni decay, CSM-interaction, magnetar) in order to estimate the SN progenitor parameters. OGLE-2014-SN-131 spectroscopically resembles SNe Ibn such as SN 2010al. Its peak luminosity and post-peak colors are also similar to those of other SNe Ibn. However, it shows an unprecedentedly long rise-time and a much broader light curve compared to other SNe Ibn. Its bolometric light curve can be reproduced by magnetar and CSM-interaction models, but not by a 56Ni-decay powering model. To explain the unusually long rise-time, the broad light curve, the light curve decline, and the spectra characterized by narrow emission lines, we favor a powering mechanism where the SN ejecta are interacting with a dense CSM. The progenitor of OGLE-2014-SN-131 was likely a Wolf-Rayet star with a mass greater than that of a typical SN Ibn progenitor, which expelled the CSM that the SN is interacting with.

I think where you look at where he’s at, how old he is and what he’s asked to do … For him this is all new.“He has a lot of bravado … a lot of pride in himself. We talked about having to keep it under control, tempering it, knowing when you should be saying things, when you shouldn’t,” Starks added. Former NFL offensive lineman Max Starks has an impressive resume that includes two Super Bowl rings. For the purposes of the Arizona Cardinals, he also has a few things in common with second-year tackle D.J. Humphries.Like Humphries, Starks went to college at Florida before playing under Cardinals coach Bruce Arians. Starks spent most of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and even briefly spent the preseason with Arizona in 2014.

His feet are quick enough but his hands haven’t caught up to his feet.”Part of the challenge in catching his hands up goes back to his experience.Humphries has most spent his football career as a dominating left tackle, but switching to the other side requires relearning his mechanics, Starks said.Starks, who will be hosting the 6 p.m. House of Cards show on select nights throughout training camp on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, said mentoring Humphries began with discussing the essentials of becoming a professional.From nailing down his career goals to teaching Humphries how to take notes in a film session, Starks believes Humphries has come a long way.

Giving refugees a sense of purpose

first_imgA new centre has opened up in old Nicosia to provide practical help to Cyprus’ growing number of migrants and refugeesAs Cyprus attempts to deal with an unprecedented number of migrants and refugees, a European NGO – Refugee Support Europe – opened its first centre for refugees in Cyprus last week.Caritas, Hope for Children, UNHCR and Kisa are among the plethora of other organisations already supporting migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, mostly by concentrating on giving legal advice and how to deal with authorities.Caritas also provides food, hands out clothes and household items and acts as a resource hub while the Hope for Children caters for unaccompanied minors.But the new centre concentrates on giving the migrants something to do.“We are very careful not to duplicate services,” chairman and co-founder of the NGO John Sloan said. “We did a lot of research and met with the existing charities before we decided.”“At the heart of the project is dignity,” coordinator at Refugee Support Europe Maggie Duff explained. “People have lost not only their homes but with it the sense of dignity. They have often had a profession, and here their skills are in limbo. We want to give them back their humanity and get them off the street.”Their approach is practical. People register, “much like at a gym”, said Duff.The centre provides teen transition kits for those who have turned 18 and must start out on their ownThey then have access to the three-floored building where the focus is on developing new skills, while also sharing the skills they have brought with them.The building in the centre of Nicosia, close to Ledra street, was rented in April when the support group moved to Nicosia, and they have since completely renovated it, installing new plumbing, electricity, internet, air conditioning, furniture and fittings.The basement is the workshop area – for bicycle repairs, carpentry and art. It also has showers and washing machines available to those who don’t have adequate space and facilities at the place where they live.Some broken old bicycles – about ten for the moment – have been donated in the UK and shipped over for the refugees to fix.“We get a shipment of different things from the UK every few months, and some bicycles are included,” Sloan said.Whoever fixes one of the bicycles at the centre gets to use it.When one of them knows how to repair a bike, this person is expected to teach others for the benefit of all.A couple of sewing machines have also been donated, and a seamstress has offered to show people how to use them.The room is, apart from that, rather bare – which also has a purpose.“We want them to make it their own space, to fill it with what they need,” Maggie said.The ground floor has a child-friendly space where parents can play with their children or can leave them in a creche while they use the other services in the building.The learning centre where English and Greek are taughtThe first floor is for learning, furnished with tables and chairs, and will be used to teach English and Greek.It will soon have a completely new kitchen, not only to prepare food for events but also to offer cookery and nutrition training.Organisers see this as a pioneering project.“In Greece, we have mainly handed out food in various refugee camps,” Sloan said. “Here people are scattered, so it is difficult to hand out food.”The whole effort is not sponsored by the EU or any government but depends solely on individual donations.“All our volunteers are self-funding, including myself,” the co-founder said. “They pay for their own travel and accommodation. At present in Cyprus, we have one Australian, one New Zealander, one South African, one Briton, one from Luxembourg and one from France.“Our volunteers spend a lot of time fundraising, in the UK and the US. We visit companies, and get the money from big concerts in London.”The small size and the fact that the NGO does not depend on slow processes enables them to be flexible and act quickly.“Governments and large humanitarian agencies are helping, but they move slowly and their resources are stretched,” Duff pointed out.The volunteers say they plan to offer space to other organisations, and there is already some collaboration.They serve breakfast three days a week in partnership with Caritas, using local food donations, and organise a dinner once a month.When unaccompanied minors turn 18 they are no longer eligible for supported housing and need to live independently. In partnership with UNHCR, they give the leavers teen transition kits which contain basic household items that are essential to a young person starting out on their own.Refugee Support was founded in 2016 in response to the growing humanitarian crisis in Europe.According to Sloan, the group has had their eye on Cyprus for some time, as the country has more than 15,000 registered refugees and now has the highest number of refugees as a percentage of the population in Europe.Unlike in other places, such as Mexico and Bangladesh, where they responded to specific crises, the support group expects to stay in Cyprus for years. The plan is to open more centres in Limassol, Paphos and Larnaca, which will be similar to the one in Nicosia.For now, the volunteers are busy adding new services and are about to start a children’s dance club on Saturday mornings, and a Yoga club for adults twice a week.And here is a message to those who have got an old, broken bicycle at home: there is a list several pages long with the names of refugees requesting a bike from the centre, a list which will most likely get longer the more people to hear about the new place.To contact the centre call 99-173967.
