Moussa Oukabir Main Suspect of the Barcelona Terror Attack

Rabat- Eighteen-year-old Moussa Oukabir is suspected of being the driver of the vehicle-ramming attack of Las Ramblas. Currently on the run, he is understood to have stolen his brother’s papers to rent the white Fiat van used in the attack, according the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia.His older brother, Driss Oukabir, turned himself at the police station in the town of Ripoll, Catalonia, in the evening after having seen his photo in the media, according to the mayor of the municipality. Once arrested, Driss told the authorities that he took no part in the terrorist attack, and that his younger brother, Moussa, had stolen his passport and ID to rent the Fiat van. The 17- or 18-year-old young man of Moroccan origin is now emerging as the main suspect of the murderous attack, according to El Mundo, after the first investigations of Catalan authorities found a social media account in the name of the suspect with posts discussing the deaths of “infidels.” Carles Puigdemont, the president of Catalonia, confirmed that Moussa Oukabir was still on the run this Friday, and that he is believed to be the alleged driver of the van in the attack in which at least 13 people were killed and 100 injured.Spanish media is reporting that an account on the social network Kiwi contains comments referencing the “killing of infidels,’’ language often used by jihadi extremists against non-Muslims. The account bears the name and picture of Moussa Oukabir.A witness on the scene told Spanish media that the van driver was no more than 25 years old, “skinny”, and with “chestnut brown hair.” Regional police chief Major Josep Luis Trapero said police had launched Operation Cage to find the van driver and any others involved in the attacks.“There is no evidence that the person who left the van was armed. We do not believe he was armed, at least visibly,’’ he told reporters.“We entered all of the bars and establishments of the area to make sure that nobody was hiding. This was clearly a terrorist attack with the intention of killing as many people as possible.’’ read more

Ohio State softball drops first game of series against Purdue 42

Sporting its road red uniforms, the Ohio State softball team dug itself into an early hole against Purdue and never recovered, losing 4-2 Friday at Buckeye Field in the first of a three-game series. Purdue (12-18, 1-3) was designated the home team after weather conditions in West Lafayette, Ind., rendered its home field unplayable and forced the teams to reschedule the weekend series eastward to Columbus. Sophomore pitcher Alex DiDomenico struggled from the start, walking the bases loaded and giving up two runs in the first inning before being pulled in the second. She finished the day with five walks and three earned runs. She suffered her fourth loss of the season. DiDomenico said she had trouble adapting to the game. “I had trouble adjusting to (home plate umpire Greg Paul’s) strike zone,” she said. “That’s on my part, I couldn’t adjust, and they took advantage of it.” Redshirt junior pitcher Melanie Nichols pitched the remainder of the game. Purdue struck first with a run off of a walk with the bases loaded and added another after a throwing error by sophomore outfielder Caitlin Conrad. The second inning saw the Boilermakers score two more, aided by junior outfielder Lindsey Rains’ RBI double. The Buckeyes (20-10, 2-2) added one back in the third inning off of freshman utility player Cammi Prantl’s sacrifice fly RBI and another in the fourth off sophomore second baseman Shelby Pickett’s RBI single to chip away at the lead, 4-2. In the end, though, the early deficit proved too large to overcome. Sophomore outfielder Taylor Watkins said the Buckeyes still have hope for the rest of the weekend. “We need to come out more focused tomorrow,” Watkins said. “We didn’t hit like we normally do, but we have to come out and play hard and forget about this game and worry about the next two.” The Buckeyes’ offense was grounded by Purdue sophomore pitcher Lexy Moore, who earned her fourth victory of the season with a three-hit, one-earned run, four-strike out game. Watkins said that the Buckeyes simply didn’t play their best. “We should have came out hard no matter what,” Watkins said. “Whether we were home or the visitors, and we didn’t. It was just a normal game.” Purdue snapped a nine-game losing streak with the victory and earned its first Big Ten win of the season. DiDomenico said she expects Saturday’s game against the Boilermakers to go better. “We have to come out tomorrow and do our best,” DiDomenico said. “And things will fall into place.” OSU is scheduled to take on Purdue for game two of the weekend series Saturday at 2 p.m. at Buckeye Field. The teams will also meet Sunday at 1 p.m. read more

Under NCLT heat RCom seeks time for Aircel merger tower business sale

first_img[Representational Image]Reuters FileReliance Communications (RCom) on Friday sought time from the Mumbai bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) as it hopes to convince China Development Bank (CDB) to withdraw its objection to the sale of its tower business and the proposed merger with Aircel, reports said on on Friday.RCom told NCLT that it is “running against time” to close the merger of its wireless business with Aircel, which will help it repay a majority of its loans to its creditors. CDB had objected to the $6-billion merger of debt-ridden telecom operators RCom and Aircel even after regulators, such as the Competition Commission of India (CCI), had cleared the deal.The bank, represented by senior counsel Darius Khambata at the NCLT, had sought a meeting of creditors with both companies ahead of the merger to discuss the loan-settlement terms.RCom senior counsel Janak Dwarkadas told the tribunal at a hearing that RCom is also in talks to address major lender China Development Bank’s (CDB) apprehensions about the deal. “(The) parties (Rcom and CDB) are negotiating as we speak. We are hopeful of some agreement.” The next date for hearing has been fixed for August 2.The Aircel deal and a stake sale in the tower business are expected to reduce RCom’s debt of around Rs 45,000 by 60 percent. The beleaguered telcom company needs to complete the merger as well as the tower sale within the seven-month breather it has from lenders, which expires in December 2017, according to an ET report on Friday.RCom owes the Chinese lender close to Rs 9,000 crore. The telco’s gross debt at the end of March 2017 was Rs 45,000 crore. Loans from local lenders stand at Rs 25,000 crore. RCom’s counsel Janak Dwarakadas said the company was hopeful of arriving at some arrangement with CDB.RCom’s representatives assured the tribunal that a creditor meeting would be called because it is important for the company to close the deal. “If you keep hearing till November, the debt will be declared NPA (non-performing assets),” Dwarkadas told the two-member bench comprising judges B S V Prakash Kumar and V Nallasenapathy, adding that nine of its lenders had given a go-ahead to the merger.ET had earlier reported that Aircel sourced equipment from Chinese vendors such as Huawei and ZTE, which are backed by loans from the Chinese banks like CDB. Additionally, RCom has over $1 billion in loans from Chinese banks. According to the rules, a merger needs the approval of 75 percent of lenders. RCom had sought a waiver of the rule on the grounds that the deal with Aircel only affected shareholders, not lenders.last_img read more

Sony hints at PS4 supporting 4K movie playback

first_imgWhen the PlayStation 4 launches later this year gamers should expect 1080p games as standard. But when it comes to video content, it looks likely Sony will be offering you the option of 4K.Sony held an event in New York City recently where they were primarily showing off new cameras, headphones, TVs, and the Xperia Z Tablet. The Japanese company is embracing 4K TVs, and during an interview with The Verge at the event, Sony Electronics’ President and COO Phil Molyneux suggested that the PS4 will indeed support outputting such content to a compatible TV.Molyneux also said that Sony sees 4K content as primarily being download only, but that’s simply due to the sizes involved. A typical 4K movie will be over 100GB, making it difficult to fit on a disc without some major compression going on, but possible as a download even if it takes hours.The PS4 supporting 4K playback and downloads doesn’t mean the new console is going to have a massive hard drive, though. Sony has a 4K download service and home server box launching this summer, and its likely you will need to use that box to store the content and then just stream it through your PS4, or use some other storage device attached to the console. It could be Sony release a PS4 external storage device specifically for this purpose.Regardless of whether the PS4 supports 4K content or not, the biggest hurdle for consumers enjoying it will be investing in a 4K TV. Just like when HDTVs first appeared, they won’t be cheap, and will remain that way well into the life of the PS4.last_img read more

The reason why you could face a fine for playing music too

first_imgGet the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailIf you like to have your music blasting in your car as you sing along, then things could be about to change. And that’s because a UK council has launched a trial that will give authorities the right to fine drivers for playing music too loudly. Bradford council has introduced a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) and it means locals – and visitors – could be slapped with a £100 penalty for anti-social vehicle use. Councillors on the Regulatory and Appeals Committee met at City Hall earlier this month, where they approved the implementation of the PSPO covering the whole of the district, reports The Mirror . It relates to a number of driving concerns – including causing a danger to other road users, playing loud music, shouting, swearing or making sexual suggestions from a motor vehicle. The move comes after a public consultation found two third of residents in Bradford felt unsafe on the roads, citing noise nuisance as a contributing problem. A further 76 per cent supported a PSPO to help reduce the anti-social behaviour in roads. Police search for missing woman Driver named following fatal collision Image: Daily Mirror. What is a PSPO? A PSPO is an order that introduces rules to an area that are designed to keep residents safe – council enforcement officers and police officers are authorised to act on them for the purpose of maintaining peace. In this instance, the PSPO can be used to stop anti-social driving – or anything considered anti-social on the road, for example excessive wheel spinning and shouting from windows. The culprits can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100. poll loadingDo you agree with fining drivers for playing music too loud?0+ VOTES SO FARYes, it’s a nuisanceNo, I should be allowed to play music in my own car Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I support the step that Bradford Council have approved in the use of Public Space Protection Orders, a move which I believe will help to tackle a number of anti-social behaviour and road safety related issues.” Council officers should be able to install the legal framework to get it up and running in the next three months.   Only the police have the powers to stop moving vehicles.

Association of Cyprus Banks fears capital adequacy impact from law on title

first_imgBy Stelios OrphanidesCypriot banks may require an unspecified amount of additional capital, should the parliament pass the draft bill facilitating the issuance of title deeds to buyers of property from insolvent developers, an official at the Association of Cyprus Banks said.The implementation of the proposed law, which international creditors have declared to a prior action required for the release of the next tranche of bailout cash of over €0.5bn and would benefit up to 78,000 buyers of property in Cyprus, would eliminate the value of collateral banks received from developers in exchange for loans, the official at the association said. “Affected banks would have to request additional collateral from developers and if they are lucky, they could get it. If not, the book value of affected loans would decrease, which could make finding additional capital necessary”.You May LikeIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoDirectExposeWorld’s First Surviving Octuplets Are All Grown Up.

scenes from Best Picture nomineesWarren Beattys first movie in 15 years Rules Dont Apply begins with a quote from its subject Howard Hughes whom Beatty plays: "Never check an interesting fact" The film out Nov 23 spins a fictional yarn and one which Beattywho had been chewing on the idea for decades and also wrote directed and produced ithas repeatedly insisted is not a biopic of the eccentric aviator entrepreneur and filmmaker But for all the insistence that audiences accept it as a fantasy Beattys depiction of an aging outlandishly idiosyncratic Hughes all but begs a revisiting of the subjects behavior during his later yearswhich was often so strange it sounds fictional itself Rules Dont Apply is less about Hughes than it is about two young people in his employ: a naive starlet named Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins) newly arrived in Los Angeles following a chaste Baptist upbringing in Virginia and Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich) a driver with entrepreneurial aspirations and a similarly uncorrupted youth This being the sexually repressed Hollywood of the 1950s their boss forbids romantic relationships among his employees This being a Hollywood movie they immediately fall in love As Marla and Franks forbidden affair percolates Hughes is at once an unwelcome obstruction and the gatekeeper of their professional aspirations a fairy godfather with the power to bless or bankrupt their dreams At times his concernssuch as Congressional hearings related to his aeronautical innovationsseem a distraction from the central narrative but they paint a picture and by all accounts a fairly meticulous one of a man who continues to fascinate 40 years after his death As far as Hughes life story Rules Dont Apply picks up roughly where The Aviator Martin Scorseses 2004 drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio leaves off though it fudges the timeline a bit (lest we forget this is a work of fiction) When Beattys Hughes enters hes a man in his 50s decades removed from inheriting his familys fortune earned in the oil tool business at age 18 He has already produced many successful movies set air-speed records with his ever more advanced aircraft and developed a reputation as a Casanova with such famous paramours as Katharine Hepburn Ava Gardner and Ginger Rogers But Beattys Hughes is somewhere in the early stages of a long decline the more advanced degrees of which we see in flash-forwards set in the 1960s The billionaire spent the final decades of his life as an increasingly agoraphobic recluse fueled in large part by obsessive compulsive disorder and chronic pain caused by a near-fatal airplane wreck in the mid-40s (the movie pushes this event back by a decade) When he appears in the films opening and closing moments bedridden and disheveled in an Acapulco hotel his appearance is indeed drawn from the real Hughes regular refusal to trim his hair or fingernails Many of the peculiarities the movie’s Hughes exhibits are borrowed from real-life anecdotes He did once halt production on a movie because he disliked the shape of an actress brassiere (Jane Russell The Outlaw 1943) He did despite his wealth and access prefer TV dinners over posh restaurants He did send his staff into a frenzy demanding that they procure banana nut ice cream despite the fact that Baskin Robbins had discontinued the flavor and would only sell the remaining barrels in bulkonly to find that their boss capricious cravings had already moved on to a new flavor Hughes also did as in the film hole up in the movie theater of a Las Vegas hotel he bought (he had a penchant for buying up hotels restaurants and airports for his exclusive use) on a continuous loop for days never leaving to eat or relieve himself A dependence on painkillers often left him incoherent as his OCD left him almost paralyzingly germophobic His body wasted away in accordance with his mind When Hughes died in 1976on an airplane as befits a word-class aviatorhe left no will designating his wishes for a multibillion-dollar estate A protracted legal battle would ensue over the decade to follow and a yearlong posthumous psychological autopsy commissioned by the estate would find that his health issues as well as his tendency to withdraw during times of anxiety stemmed from an isolated childhood under the care of a mother who feared intensely that her son would contract polio As these tangled matters began to surface late in 1976 TIME correctly predicted an ongoing fascination with the recently deceased tycoon the mysterious nature of whom would no doubt lend itself to many artistic interpretations: Whatever the outcome of the legal proceedings Hughes will be one of the hottest show-biz properties of 1977 People the world over will be seeing and reading more about Howard Hughes next year than at any time since he was setting new air records and squiring numerous beautiful women in the 1940s and ’50s Warner Bros is planning to make The Howard Hughes Story possibly starring Warren Beatty Fancy thatit took four decades but Beattys Hughes has finally landed Write to Eliza Berman at elizaberman@timecomWhen President Donald Trump suggested recently the US should prioritize persecuted Christian refugees not all Christians in the Middle East rejoiced "We want dont priority visas We dont want him to take us" says Habib Ephrem "Thats the wrong message and the wrong policy" Ephrem secretary general of the Gathering of Christians in the Middle East is one of a number of Christian leaders encouraging Christians to stay in the region and return to their homes in Syria and Iraq as the areas are cleared of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and other groups Tens of thousands of Christians have been displaced in recent years mostly languishing in camps and cramped apartments But Ephrem says countries that are prioritizing Christian refugees are effectively helping ISIS purge the region of different faiths "ISIS expels people from their homeland and then you take them to the West" says Ephrem "So what You are doing the policy of ISIS" He has gone as far as lobbying foreign governments to stop facilitating Christian migration The US does not currently give Christian refugees priority despite Trump’s suggestion but in the past countries including Poland and Slovakia have indicated they would give preference to Christian refugees and France has also previously offered to host Christians that fled ISIS Other countries like Canada offer private sponsorship programs at are often used by churches to bring their brethren to the country Ephrem and others believe Iraq and Syrian Christians are deserting their earliest homelands The Christian communities there are some of the oldest in the world; the Nineveh plains and cities in Northern Iraq are even mentioned in the Bible The exodus of Iraqi Christians started after the US invasion in 2003 but it was ISISs rapid advance in 2014 that pushed thousands to flee their villages in a matter of days ISISs objective of creating an Islamic caliphate left Christians with few options convert pay die or leave Many chose the latter path In the past year Karim Farajs Facebook feed has been filled with pictures of his Syrian Christian friends now in Europe and Canada He says hundreds of Christians he knows have found ways to get to Western countries Some went with visas but most paid smugglers His village in Hama province is now controlled by Russian and Syrian forces he says but its not safe However he stayed close by in neighboring Lebanon and say he wants to go back to Syria "You cant be truly comfortable except in your own country" says Faraj 21 Yet other Syrian Christians say they have little to return to "Go back to what" asks Joseph Youhana a farmer from Hasakah in northeast Syria "I watched ISIS blow up our church" Youhana and his family were held captive by ISIS for 10 months The militants tried to force them to convert to Islam In September the church struck a deal with ISIS to release him his family and more than 200 other Christians for a sum of $35 million most of it raised through donations Many Christian refugees say even if their villages are retaken by government or other friendly forces they will never feel secure again As Youhana and the others were loaded on buses in ISISs de facto capital Raqqa bound for the Lebanese border one of the fighters pulled Youhanas 14-year-old niece off the bus "Weve heard nothing about her since ISIS still has her" he says showing her picture on his phone "I will not take my daughters back there" Youhana says that even if he felt safe enough to return he doesnt have the money to rebuild his house Some Christian leaders argue that instead of simply taking Christians in Western governments should invest in rebuilding these communities and help guarantee Christians and other minority groups equal rights in their homeland Nafa Mayouma 50 says that will never happen He left Mosul just as ISIS took the city in 2014 The family stayed in northern Iraq for a few months before coming to Lebanon Today he prays in church in Beirut with hundreds of other Iraqi Christians "Our church in Iraq didnt want us to leave" says Mayouma "Maybe its useful for the bishops to have us stay Not for us" He says he knows that soon there will be few Christians left in Iraq but that hes not willing to go back and risk the safety of his family Even if ISIS is pushed out of Mosul or even out of Iraq Mayouma says it wont be secure "Fine you take out ISIS Two three years later youll just have a bigger fiercer group" says Mayouma citing the various militant Islamists groups that came before ISIS in Iraq Ephrem says he knows asking people to stay or return when they are still under attack is difficult but he says Christians and other religious minorities need to resist He points to Lebanons civil war Thousands of Christians fled the often-sectarian fighting but many stayed Today an estimated 38% of the country is Christian though there has been no official census since 1932 What Christians need says Ephrem is more allies to fight groups like ISIS and Boko Haram not help in fleeing them Then perhaps the ancient Christian communities could return to Iraq and Syria "Christianity began here" he says Contact us at editors@timecom I don’t even have them floating in my sleep a
