Sexual assault reports against Wynn filed with Vegas police

first_imgLAS VEGAS, Nev. – Two more sexual misconduct allegations were levelled against embattled casino mogul Steve Wynn on Tuesday, when police in Las Vegas revealed they recently received two reports from women saying the billionaire sexually assaulted them in the 1970s.This was the first admission from police in Las Vegas about reports filed against Wynn since sexual misconduct allegations against him were revealed last month.One woman reported Wynn assaulted her in Las Vegas and the other said she was assaulted in Chicago, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement. The Las Vegas case will not be investigated because the statute of limitations in Nevada is 20 years.The victim of that alleged assault contacted the department from St. Louis on Jan. 29, three days after the Wall Street Journal reported that a number of women said Wynn harassed or assaulted them and that one case led to a $7.5 million settlement.The other, filed in Las Vegas on Feb. 5, is being forwarded to the Chicago Police Department.Details of exactly what transpired during the alleged assaults was not disclosed.The billionaire has vehemently denied the allegations, which he attributes to a campaign led by his ex-wife.“In the last couple of weeks, I have found myself the focus of an avalanche of negative publicity,” Wynn said in the written statement that announced his resignation last week as chairman and CEO at Wynn Resorts. “As I have reflected upon the environment this has created — one in which a rush to judgment takes precedence over everything else, including the facts — I have reached the conclusion I cannot continue to be effective in my current roles.”Wynn Resorts spokesman Michael Weaver on Tuesday said the company does not have a comment on the reports filed by the women “because this involved a company before the establishment of Wynn Resorts.”Wynn is facing scrutiny by gambling regulators in Nevada and Massachusetts, where the company is building a roughly $2.4 billion casino just outside Boston. Regulators in Macau, the Chinese enclave where the company operates two casinos, are also inquiring about the allegations.The Nevada Gaming Control Board on Monday set up an online form that allows people to report information on any of its active investigations. The reporting system was set up after the agency received numerous calls regarding the investigation against Wynn.Wynn Resorts has also created a committee to investigate the allegations. On Monday, the group announced it was expanded its scope to review the company’s internal policies and procedures to ensure a “safe and respectful workplace for all employees.”last_img read more

Federal government accelerates phaseout of ruptureprone rail tankers

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal government is speeding up the timelines for the removal of rupture-prone tank cars from Canadian railroads.Ottawa has taken steps to phase out certain types of tank cars following the deadly train derailment and explosions in Lac-Megantic, Que., that killed 47 people in 2013.Transport Minister Marc Garneau announced new timelines today that will now see CPC-1232 tank cars that carry crude oil phased out by Nov. 1 — which is 17 months earlier than the previous deadline.He says remaining DOT-111 tankers and CPC-1232 tank cars that transport highly volatile flammable liquids will be removed by Jan. 1 — more than six years sooner than an earlier target date.Federation of Canadian Municipalities president Vicki-May Hamm and Railway Association of Canada CEO Marc Brazeau welcomed the accelerated timelines, saying in separate statements that the cars’ removal will lower the safety risks for many communities.DOT-111s carrying volatile crude oil exploded in the Lac-Megantic disaster and the tanker models were completely removed from crude service two years ago.last_img read more

Lawsuit Gas company knew rig was unsafe before explosion

first_imgQUINTON, Okla. — The family of one of five workers who were killed in an Oklahoma gas well explosion in January says the drilling company didn’t act upon multiple warnings that its safety equipment was in disrepair.Parker Waldridge’s family alleges in a Dec. 4 amendment to their wrongful death lawsuit that a “cascade of errors and multiple departures from safe drilling practices” by drilling company Patterson-UTI Drilling led to the blowout near Quinton in January .The lawsuit alleges that at least two days before the explosion, the rig superintendent, manager and several other Patterson employees received email results of a laboratory test warning of problems with the rig’s accumulator. It says the warnings even came with a “skull and crossbones graphic (literally).”The Tulsa World reports that the families of each dead worker and a worker who was badly injured have filed lawsuits over the explosion.Patterson and Red Mountain Energy, the well’s owner that hired it, issued statements blaming each other.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Empowering women key to achieving UN Millennium Goals – Migiro

Addressing an international conference in Jerusalem on women’s leadership for sustainable development, Ms. Migiro highlighted the “deep and unbreakable” connection between women and development, particularly in reaching the set of global anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). “We know that achieving gender equality and empowering women is not only a goal in itself,” she told the participants, which included female leaders such as Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. “It is also a condition for building healthier, better educated, more peaceful and more prosperous societies.” Noting that one of the MDGs is specifically on gender equality and the empowerment of women, Ms. Migiro stressed that a gender perspective is “imperative” in the other Goals as well.The Deputy Secretary-General pointed out the disproportionately high incidence of poverty among women, as well as the fact that the majority of the more than 800 million adults around the world who cannot read are women. In addition, women are increasingly bearing the brunt of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.“Unless careful attention is paid to the discrimination of women across all MDGs, the achievement of the Goals will be jeopardized,” she stated, adding that greater efforts are required to combat extreme poverty, disease, illiteracy and gender discrimination around the world.She urged participants to use the unique opportunity presented by the conference to advance the common goals of empowering women and promoting sustainable development, both crucial elements in the “march towards the MDGs.” Jerusalem is the first stop on the Deputy Secretary-General’s current trip, which will also take her to the occupied Palestinian territory and then to Geneva. 19 November 2007Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro warned today that the pledges to slash poverty, hunger, disease and illiteracy by 2015, made by world leaders at the United Nations seven years ago, are at risk unless countries pay greater attention to empowering women and achieving gender equality. read more

As temperatures drop asylumseekers on Greek islands need to be moved to

According to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), transfers of asylum-seekers from the islands to the mainland are allowed only after people have completed a registration process or in cases of particular vulnerability.“Slowness in registration or identifying vulnerable individuals and, previously, a shortage of suitable spaces on the mainland have been factors delaying moves,” Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for UNHCR told the media at a regular bi-weekly briefing in Geneva today.“Among other things this has contributed to serious overcrowding of facilities built for far fewer people, and increased protection risks,” he added.The situation is particularly concerning on the islands of Samos, Chios and Lesvos.The UN agency and its partners have distributed thermal blankets, sleeping bags, winter protection kits and heating fuel, installed electric heaters and insulation, and set up heated Rubb halls – large, relocatable tent-like structures often used in situations of emergency.It is clear that people would be better off on the mainland and should be moved there more quickly and in larger numbers“[However] it’s clear that people would be better off on the mainland and should be moved there more quickly and in larger numbers,” noted the UNHCR spokesperson.He further explained that over the Christmas to New Year period in 2016, the agency completed winter preparations for all sites assigned to it by Greek authorities and is finishing additional infrastructure upgrades elsewhere.In total it has created some 21,000 accommodation places in apartments, with host families, or in other buildings. 700 places have been also found for unaccompanied children in dedicated structures. Urgency of relocating asylum-seekers to other countriesAlso at the briefing today, the UN refugee agency reminded European Union (EU) countries of the continued need to help resolve the situation in Greece through relocating asylum-seekers to other countries.It noted that as of 4 January, only 7,760 asylum-seekers had left Greece or were scheduled to leave under the EU Relocation Mechanism agreed in late 2015.“This represents around 12 per cent of the 66,400 agreed and is unacceptably low,” said Mr. Edwards, adding:“UNHCR appeals to EU Member states to respect their previous commitments and offer additional spaces without further delay.”Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for UNHCR, highlighting the challenges on the Greek islands read more

Réforme de la santé Obama naccepte pas la décision du juge fédéral

first_imgRéforme de la santé : Obama n’accepte pas la décision du juge fédéralAlors qu’un juge américain a fait savoir que la réforme de la santé proposée par Barack Obama n’était pas entièrement constitutionnelle, l’administration du président a annoncé qu’elle allait faire appel de ce jugement.Cette semaine aux Etats-Unis, la réforme de la santé, mesure phare du président américain Barack Obama, est une nouvelle fois au cœur des discussions, après qu’un juge américain l’a déclarée non-constitutionnelle. Ainsi, Henry Hudson a expliqué dans son tribunal que l’établissement d’une couverture médicale pour tous allait “au-delà des pouvoirs conférés par la Constitution au Congrès” (voir notre article).De son côté, l’administration Obama ne compte pas se laisser faire et va faire appel de ce jugement. Ainsi, elle explique que la reforme proposée par Barack Obama est tout à fait constitutionnelle, un avis partagé par Nancy-Ann DeParle, directrice du service de la réforme de l’assurance santé à la Maison Blanche, qui a fait savoir : “Nous pensons qu’il est constitutionnel de dire que tout le monde a besoin d’être dans le système, que tout le monde a besoin d’une couverture maladie s’il peut se la payer et s’il ne le peut pas, de recevoir de l’aide pour la financer”. La réforme de la santé suit depuis ses débuts un parcours mouvementé. Plusieurs fois remise en question, la loi sur l’assurance maladie a été adoptée de justesse au Congrès il y a quelques mois.Le 15 décembre 2010 à 18:13 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

LATV3 prend son envol vers lISS

first_imgL’ATV-3 prend son envol vers l’ISSCe matin, pour la 61ème fois, une fusée Ariane 5 a quitté le port spatial de Kourou. Sa mission : livrer l’ATV (Automated Transfer Vehicle) à la Station spatiale internationale (ISS), un matériel de plus de 20 tonnes.Ce vendredi matin, à 1h34 et 5 secondes, décollait de Kourou la fusée Ariane 5. Elle emmène avec elle l’ATV, un véhicule de ravitaillement de la Station spatiale internationale. Ce matériel de plus de 20 tonnes et mesurant dix mètres de long pour 4,5 mètres de diamètre, sera déposé en orbite à 260 kilomètres de la Terre. “Nous avons assisté à un vol parfait aujourd’hui. C’est un succès pour ce lancement particulièrement complexe. Car l’ATV [ … ] est la plus grosse charge utile lancée par Ariane 5 à ce jour”, indique Jean-Yves Le Gall, P-DG d’Arianespace cité par l’AFP.Une heure après avoir quitté le sol, l’ATV-3 Edoardo Amaldi s’est détaché de l’étage supérieur du lanceur. Il se dirige maintenant seul vers l’ISS à la vitesse de 28.000 kilomètres par heure. Son arrivée est prévue pour dans une semaine et malgré sa vitesse de déplacement “il parvient à s’arrimer automatiquement à la station spatiale internationale avec une précision de moins de dix centimètres”, explique Alain Charmeau, directeur d’Astrium Space Transportation.L’ATV livrera aux six astronautes (trois Russes, deux Américains et un Hollandais) actuellement à bord de l’ISS (à 400 kilomètres d’altitude) “un peu plus de six tonnes de fret”. Ils y trouveront notamment des stocks de nourriture : des aliments lyophilisés, quelques produits frais (oranges, tomates, etc.), 285 kilos d’eau potable et 100 kilos d’oxygène. Le cargo est également chargé en carburant car il possède le pouvoir de propulser l’ISS et de corriger l’orbite de la station.Des sous-vêtements et des Lego Technic À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreAu total, 1.062 articles, répartis dans 153 sacs seront disponibles. Les astronautes pourront ainsi décharger le cargo progressivement en fonction de leurs besoins. L’ATV a en effet emmené tout le matériel nécessaire à la vie à bord : des sous-vêtements, des tee-shirts, des survêtements, des shorts, du savon, des serviettes, des brosses à dents et du dentifrice. N’oublions pas que l’ISS n’est pas équipée de machine à laver ! Cela demanderait beaucoup trop d’eau. De même, c’est l’urine de l’équipage qui est pompée et filtrée pour fournir de l’eau potable. Enfin, l’ATV livre du matériel de support pour les expériences faites dans l’espace par les astronautes. Cela sans compter les boîtes de jeu Lego Technic, qui permettront de réaliser une expérience de la NASA destinée à des cours spécialement donnés sur Terre aux écoliers. Chaque spationaute reçoit également un colis-cadeau, une surprise envoyée par les familles. L’ATV restera ainsi arrimé à la station spatiale pendant environ de cinq mois. Une fois la mission arrivée à son terme, il sera rempli de déchets et de matériel devenu inutile. Il se détachera alors de la station, sera désorbité et se désintègrera en faisant son entrée dans l’atmosphère terrestre. Il aura parcouru au total quatre millions de kilomètres.Le 23 mars 2012 à 13:15 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

What You Can Learn From Michael Bays Embarrassing Presentation Mishap

first_imgJanuary 7, 2014 Enroll Now for Free 3 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowcenter_img Perhaps Michael Bay should stay behind the camera.In a humiliating turn, the Transformers auteur totally botched a live Samsung presentation at the 2014 International CES on Monday touting the tech giant’s forthcoming 105-inch curved UHD televisions.Bay–notorious for his short fuse on set–arrived onstage visibly nervous alongside the Samsung executive Joe Stinziano, flubbed his introduction, and then couldn’t seem to recover.”The type is all off–sorry,” he grumbled in response to teleprompters that had lost sync due to his premature remarks. “But I’ll just wing this.”After several heavy sighs and awkward non-sequitors, Stinziano attempted to steer the conversation back to the much-hyped product at hand. “The Curve?” he said. “How do you think it’s going to impact how viewers experience your movies?”Upon which Bay turned and walked offstage.Later, on his website, Bay explained the embarrassing mishap, but didn’t offer much in the way of an apology. “I guess live shows aren’t my thing,” he wrote.Related: How to Save Any Presentation From a Technology MeltdownWhile technical blunders and communication gaffes are somewhat inevitable during live presentations, the show must–as they say–go on. Here are three of our favorite tips for keeping cool in the face of the unexpected:Don’t rely solely on technologyAlthough scripts and slides can serve as great assets to any presentation, it is crucial to know the material through and through beyond any multimedia resources at hand, writes communication specialist Shari Alexander.”To keep your audience engaged,” she says, “you have to be able to seamlessly continue on while the tech gods fix the problem.”Have saver lines locked and loaded”If you panic, your audience will panic,” Alexander writes. That’s why it’s crucial to have a backup plan devised in the event of a worst-case-scenario.If a joke flops, for instance, she suggests this line: “When [executive name] told me during lunch that that would be a funny line, I believed him.”Turn the blooper into a lessonSometimes, what we perceive to be weaknesses can actually turn into strengths. Mistakes can transform into opportunities–when perceived as such.Alexander writes of a presenter who not only acknowledged an insurmountable technical delay, but turned it into a teachable moment by incorporating the error into the presentation itself. Related: Richard Branson on the Art of Public Speaking This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more

Costa Ricas Macho Coca A fishmonger accused of being a drug lord

first_imgRelated posts:After 23 years in prison, top assassin for Pablo Escobar is a ‘reformed’ man Costa Rica takes down suspected drug trafficker ‘Macho Coca,’ on the DEA’s radar for years Costa Rica’s 3-pronged strategy scores high against drug trafficking, says Coast Guard chief Mexico wants to question Sean Penn over meeting with ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán En Comisión de Narcotráfico compare Néstor Mattis alcalde de Limón y “Macho Coca”, Giberth Bell. pic.twitter.com/vMersoSGiQ— Luis Zárate Alvarado (@elzaratismo) October 1, 2015 In the early 1990s Gilbert Bell was known in the Caribbean province of Limón for his successful fishing business. Bell ran a fish dock where boats could come and unload their daily catch. For a while, no one found anything strange about Bell’s business, but it soon became clear that boats were catching more than fish in the Caribbean waters.Bell, better known today as “Macho Coca,” allegedly used a network of docks, fishermen and bribed public officials to build himself a drug trafficking empire, but until last week no one could prove it. On Oct. 8, law enforcement agents raided several of Bell’s luxury properties throughout the country, seizing several vehicles and more than $69,000 in cash. With Bell and two of his associates now facing trial, details of the alleged drug operation have emerged.According to law enforcement officials, Macho Coca made a name for himself on the drug trafficking scene by buying cocaine shipments found at Limón’s infamous Dos Aguas. Spanish for “two waters,” Dos Aguas is a spot along Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast where the ocean currents merge, carrying in floating objects at sea. Drug traffickers on the run from the Coast Guard often toss bales of cocaine overboard. These packages frequently wash ashore at Dos Aguas, where they are picked up and sold.Macho Coca’s business grew not-so-quietly throughout the region, and his fame spread abroad. The Nicaraguan Army linked Macho Coca to a series of attacks on national shrimping boats, and in the United States, the DEA opened a file on him. For decades locals, fishermen and even police claimed to know of Bell’s shady business dealings, but no evidence directly linked him to his infamous alter-ego, Macho Coca.Despite his massive accumulation of wealth, Bell continued to present himself as a successful fishmonger. The businessman’s influence ran so deep that he was able to secure himself a position in the government’s highly criticized Costa Rican Fisheries Institute (INCOPESCA), where he served on the Advisory Committee for Caribbean Fishing until his arrest last week.“Because of the way they work it isn’t easy to investigate drugs, it isn’t easy to investigate drug trafficking,” Gerald Campos, director of the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ), told La Prensa. “Curiously, in Limón, everyone talks but no one will testify, and without witnesses we have to find other ways to investigate.”And so it was with a clean criminal record that on Oct. 1, Gilbert Bell presented himself to the Legislative Assembly as part of an investigation about an illegal dock in Portete de Limón, where drug traffickers allegedly operated. Though Bell was the primary suspect in funding the estimated $2 million operation, both he and the mayor of the small town denied knowing who built the dock.When a lawmaker asked Bell about his nickname, Macho Coca, Bell responded, “Everyone just calls me Gilbert Bell or Macho.”center_img But Bell’s cool reply didn’t throw the OIJ, and armed with a year’s worth of wiretaps as evidence, prosecutors locked up Bell and two accomplices for six months of preventive detention, while they build a case.Related: Drug traffickers lure Costa Rica’s struggling coastal fishermen with offers of easy money Facebook Commentslast_img read more
