It sounded very real Los Angeles man charged in Calgary police swatting

first_imgCALGARY – The Calgary Police Service has charged a Los Angeles man in a hoax last month that caused tactical teams to descend on an apartment building for a report of a shooting and hostage taking that turned out to be bogus.Acting Duty Insp. Peter Siegenthaler said there’s a good indication that the accused — Tyler Raj Barriss — is the same man charged in a similar incident six days later that led police in Wichita, Kan., to fatally shoot an unarmed man.Calgary police have charged Barriss, 25, with public mischief for falsely reporting an offence, fraud for providing false information by letter or telecommunication and mischief.A man with the same name, age and city of residence has been charged in Kansas with making a false alarm. He waived his right to an extradition hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court last week.In both the Calgary and Wichita cases, police say a man called 911 purporting that he’d shot his father and that he was holding his mother and a sibling at gunpoint. When someone makes a phoney emergency call aimed at sending tactical officers to a certain location, it’s known as swatting.Siegenthaler said swatting calls can put the public and officers at risk and tie up police resources.He said it’s frustrating.“We have to take these calls seriously and we have to take them at face value based on the information that we receive.”Siegenthaler said a man called 911 on Dec. 22 claiming he had shot his father and was holding his mom and younger brother hostage. He gave an address.“This call concerned us because it was very specific and it sounded very real,” said Siegenthaler.Patrol and tactical officers were on the scene quickly and they began evacuating nearby apartment units. While police were trying to confirm what happened, another 911 call came from a woman at the same address.The woman told police she believed she was the victim of a swatting call, based on something a person told her online. Siegenthaler said she had contact with Barriss earlier in the day, but did not elaborate on their relationship.Police said they believe the woman was targeted because of her “online persona.” But Siegenthaler said victims are often random and pranksters have even been known to target movie stars.He said it’s not difficult for someone to figure out how to make a 911 call to a different city.Siegenthaler said it’s unlikely that Barriss will be extradited to Canada, but that he would be arrested if he entered the country.He said Barriss wasn’t on the Calgary Police Service’s radar until after the death of 28-year-old Andrew Finch in Wichita on Dec. 28.Someone made a similar shooting-and-hostage-taking report at Finch’s address and officers surrounded the home.Finch was fatally shot by police after he answered the door.last_img read more

Enora Malagré Wants to Adopt from Morocco

By Alexandra GrittaRabat – French columnist and television personality Enora Malagré wants to adopt a child from Morocco, as she is unable to have any of her own, reports Moroccan newsource Plurielle.“I cannot birth any children, so I will adopt,” Malagré was quoted on the French show “Les Grandes Gueules,” which aired on radio RMC. The French entertainer suffers from a condition known as endometriosis, which she says “has ruined [her] chances of birthing children.” Nevertheless, the 37-year-old has not given up her dream of raising children. She says that for her, adoption is the perfect solution.In her adoptive search, Malagré has turned to Morocco.“I started the adoption process a short time ago,” she explains, “I expect it to be long. I am trying to adopt in Morocco because I am very attached to the country, and for other personal reasons.” Endometriosis is a disorder where tissue grows outside of the uterus inside of it. The “dislocated” tissue grows as it normally would inside of the uterus, thickening, breaking down, and bleeding during each menstrual cycle. However the tissue is trapped inside the body, and unable to exit, causing severe pain. Endometriosis can affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and also the pelvic tissues. As a result, fertility issues are common.Malagré encourages women to not suffer from the disorder in silence, and to seek medical treatment to help alleviate their symptoms. She believes that many women are embarrassed about their condition, and seeks to combat the stigma surrounding it. read more

Sri Lanka assures OIC member countries safety of Muslims

He also noted that some of the OIC member countries have provided the assistance of intelligence experts for the counter terror operations. Explaining the successful operations carried out by the security forces and intelligence services, he thanked the envoys for the intelligence expertise and cooperation provided by those countries. The envoys of OIC countries were unanimous in their condemnation of terrorism. However, they urged the President to ensure safety of the Muslim community in the face of some hate speeches of some senior politicians and a section of the clergy. The President assured them that as a Government every possible step has been taken to ensure the safety of all the citizens. President Maithripala Sirisena today met with the Ambassadors and High Commissioners of Muslim countries holding the membership of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to discuss about the current security situation in the country, the President’s office said.The President thanked the envoys for the cooperation and assistance provided to Sri Lanka at this time of need and urged them to continue to provide economic assistance and lift the travel advisories issued to tourists. He said that current utterances of some interested parties was due to the prevailing political situation as an election is forthcoming.The envoys of Turkey, Malaysia, Pakistan, UAE, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Bangladesh, Kuwait, Qatar, The Maldives, Iraq, Libya, Iran and Oman attended the discussion. Secretary to the President, Udaya R Seniviratne, Foreign Secretary Ravinatha Ariyasinha and Additional Secretary Esala Weerakoon were also present. (Colombo Gazette) read more

On World Environment Day UN launches global effort to assess ecosystems

Speaking at the launch of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment at UN Headquarters in New York, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said that the project was designed to bring the world’s best science to bear on the pressing choices the international community faced in managing the global environment. The Assessment – also launched today in Beijing, Havana, London, Tokyo and Turin – is a four-year $21 million effort that involves 1,500 scientists and brings together governments, non-governmental organizations, foundations, academic institutions and the private sector.”It will fill important knowledge gaps, enabling policy-makers to make better, more informed decisions,” Mr. Annan said. “Most of all, the Assessment promises to help us improve the lives and livelihoods of the poor, and make considerable gains in our efforts to find and equitable and sustainable balance between environment and development.”This year, the theme of World Environment Day is “Connect with the World Wide Web of Life,” which, observance organizers say, is a reminder that the Earth – with its complex, interlocking systems – is the foundation of our lives. “As our world views are continually challenged by new information, and as we become more aware of the consequences of our collective actions, it becomes harder for us to ignore the quality of our surrounding environment,” said Klaus Toepfer, the Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP).For his part, General Assembly President Harri Holkeri highlighted the fact that this year’s Day coincided with the Assembly’s special session to review the Habitat Agenda adopted five years ago at the second UN Human Settlements conference in Istanbul. “This coincidence underscores the interdependence of our human habitat with the environment and its living and non-living resources.” The head of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Mark Malloch Brown, said in a message that a dynamic use of information technologies would prove critical in meeting the challenges of better engaging public dialogue on “win-win” opportunities in natural resource management, involving local communities in managing ecosystems, and filling critical information gaps on how best to do so. World Environment Day aims to involve the public in a wide range of activities, such as street rallies, bicycle parades, green concerts, as well as recycling and clean-up campaigns. As part of today’s observance, UNEP presented its prestigious Global 500 Awards in Turin, Italy, to 18 individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to environmental protection. The agency also launched a new web-portal “FOOD” to help developing countries phase out a toxic and ozone depleting pesticide – methyl bromide. read more

Former top Yugoslav army officer transferred from Serbia to UN war crimes

A former top officer in the Yugoslav army, wanted for allegedly leading a campaign of “terror and violence” in 1999 in Kosovo, was transferred today from Serbia to the detention unit of the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague.An indictment by the ICTY issued last October accuses General Dragoljub Ojdanic, who held the post of Chief of General Staff, of leading Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Serb forces in targeting a substantial portion of Kosovo Albanian civilians for expulsion from the province in an effort to ensure continued Serbian control. The alleged acts occurred between 1 January and 20 June 1999.According to the indictment, approximately 800,000 Kosovo Albanian civilians were expelled from the province by their forced removal and subsequent looting and destruction of their homes, or by the shelling of villages.Surviving residents were sent to the borders of neighbouring countries and en route many were killed, abused or had their possessions and identification papers stolen, according to the charges. Specific massacres were also allegedly committed by Serb forces in a series of places listed in the indictment.Three other suspects, Milan Milutinovic, Nikola Sainovic and Vlajko Stojiljkovic, are also named in the indictment against Gen. Ojdanic, who is charged with one count of violations of the laws or customs of war and four counts of crimes against humanity. read more

Strict new UNsponsored maritime antiterrorism measures come into force

The measures, which require detailed security plans for ships and ports as well as such steps as regular and intensive individual or joint patrolling in vulnerable sea areas and the exchange of real-time intelligence, were developed and adopted by the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO) in response to the 11 September 2001, terrorist attacks against the United States.”IMO has repeatedly urged governments and the industry to take steps to increase awareness of the potential dangers and to encourage ships’ crews to be vigilant and alert to any security threat they may encounter,” the agency’s chief, Efthimios E. Mitropoulos, said of the new International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code).”Great emphasis has been placed on the entry-into-force date, but the real challenge is to ensure that, now that date has passed, we do not allow ourselves to relax and adopt any complacent attitude,” he added.The measures, adopted in December 2002 by a Conference on Maritime Security, represent the first-ever internationally agreed regulatory framework addressing the crucial issue of maritime security, but IMO stressed that they should not be seen in isolation but as part of the wider UN battle against terrorism.”In effect we are talking about establishing an entirely new culture amongst those involved in the day-to-day running of the shipping and port industry,” IMO said in a release on the ISPS Code, which requires governments to gather and assess information with respect to security threats and exchange such data with other governments. Shipboard and port facility personnel must be aware of security threats and report concerns to the appropriate authorities, while governments need to communicate security related information to ships and port facilities.The measures take the form of amendments to the 1974 Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention, which has 148 contracting governments and applies to 98.4 per cent of the world’s merchant ships by gross tonnage.Security experts have identified a number of terrorist scenarios regarding loaded oil tankers, including their being hijacked and grounded at environmentally sensitive areas to cause pollution, being run aground in narrow channels to block navigation, and being used as potential incendiary devices near ports and large anchorage areas. read more

Judicial reform needed for women in postconflict areas UN report says

The report, “Peace Needs Women and Women Need Justice,” has been submitted to the Security Council. It is based on a three-day conference on “best practices” sponsored by UNIFEM and the Stockholm-based International Legal Assistance Consortium (ILAC) last September.The vulnerabilities of women are dramatically increased during conflict and, more than that, their rights are seriously violated, or largely ignored, it says.These concerns have already been discussed and reported, it says. What is needed now is “the establishment of a high-level mechanism to determine what issues and recommendations raised at the conference require follow-up action by the UN system as a whole, as well as by Member States, regional organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other relevant actors.”Joint action could be undertaken by the Security Council, the General Assembly and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) to spearhead or support the establishment of that mechanism, which could then address the need for a “dedicated structure” in the UN to coordinate assistance for justice systems, with an agreed methodology.Conference participants included women from such areas of pre-independence or continuing conflict as Afghanistan, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Haiti, Iraq, Kosovo, Liberia, Namibia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Timor-Leste. read more

Worries Greek debt needs further restructuring helps send TSX lower for 3rd

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 24, 2012 4:47 pm MDT Worries Greek debt needs further restructuring helps send TSX lower for 3rd day TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed lower for a third session Tuesday as worries about the future of the eurozone discouraged buyers.A report that Greece will have do yet another restructuring of its debt added to concerns about whether higher borrowing costs for Spain are a precursor to the country seeking a bailout and an unsettling downgrade by Moody’s Investor Services.The S&P/TSX composite index slid 78.59 points to 11,466.95 amid a positive report from Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.B). The TSX Venture Exchange was down 7.69 points to 1,166.47.The Canadian dollar ticked 0.35 of a cent lower to 98 cents US as nervous investors piled into U.S. Treasuries. The yield on the U.S. 10-year Treasury went as low as 1.4 per cent.“It’s still a matter of risk-on, risk-off,” said Ian Nakamoto, director of research at MacDougall, MacDougall and MacTier.“Sometimes you feel regulatory officials and companies are handling these challenging times quite well and other times you feel scared. There is no better gauge than looking at U.S. 10-year bond yields, which have hit an all time low.”Apple Inc. (Nasdaq:AAPL) shares plunged nearly six per cent in after-hours trading following its post-market close report that third-quarter earnings per share were US$9.32, missing analysts’ expectations of US$10.37 by a full dollar. Revenues were $35 billion, while analysts expected $37 billion on lower iPhone sales.Weak earnings reports from DuPont and United Parcel Services also pressured U.S. markets. But indexes closed off the worst levels of the session after the Wall Street Journal said the U.S. Federal Reserve is moving closer to applying further stimulus measures to support the economy.The Dow Jones industrials dropped 104.14 points to 12,617.32.The Nasdaq composite index was off 27.16 points to 2,862.99 and the S&P 500 index lost 12.21 points to 1,338.31.Stocks were negative on worries that Spain may need a full-blown sovereign bailout. The country has been mired in recession and its banks are saddled with billions of euros in toxic loans arising from a collapsed real estate market.“The rain in Spain comes back again,” added Nakamoto.Confidence about Spain’s ability to deal with its finances has taken a beating, with the country forced to pay ever higher yields in order to finance its debt. The yield on its benchmark 10-year bond surged well past the seven per cent mark Monday, a level considered unsustainable.The yield on the country’s 10-year bonds was up another 0.11 percentage points Tuesday at 7.54 per cent, while the IBEX 35 stock index in Madrid was 3.6 per cent lower.Losses on North American markets picked up amid media reports that three EU officials believe Greece will have to restructure some €200 billion in debt, which would place more strain on the European Central Bank and the other 16 eurozone countries.The report surfaced a day before representatives of Greece’s creditors are due in Athens for weeks of talks ahead of their next report on Greece’s austerity program, on which continued payment of bailout money hinges. Greece depends on rescue loans from its European partners and the International Monetary Fund to keep paying for vital public services and servicing its loans.Adding to market pessimism was a move by Moody’s Investor Services late Monday to lower the outlook on Germany’s AAA rating to negative from stable due to mounting uncertainties from the eurozone debt crisis.Moody’s also downgraded the outlooks on the Netherlands and Luxembourg and affirmed Finland’s AAA rating.The agency noted that the cost of supporting Italy and Spain in the eurozone would fall most heavily on better rated members “if the euro area is to be preserved in its current form.”Moody’s also said there was an “increased likelihood” that Greece would leave Europe’s monetary union.The telecom sector led TSX advancers, up 1.44 per cent even as Rogers Communications Inc. reported net income declined 2.4 per cent to $400 million, or 75 cents per share. But adjusted earnings of $478 million, or 91 cents per share beat estimates by five cents. Revenue was $3.11 billion, up slightly from $3.1 billion in the comparable period, but below expectations of $3.14 billion. But its shares jumped $1.77 to $39.01. Elsewhere in the sector, BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) gained 49 cents to $41.79.Commodities were mixed Tuesday after demand worries and a rising American currency impacted prices for oil and metals on Monday.The gold sector was ahead slightly with the August bullion contract closing down $1.20 at US$1,576.20 an ounce. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) edged up 19 cents to C$33.66 .The energy sector fell 1.84 per cent while the September crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange shook off early losses to gain 36 cents to US$88.50 after plunging almost $4. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) lost $1.11 to C$27.67.Husky Energy Inc. says weaker commodity prices helped pull second-quarter net earnings down to $431 million, or 43 cents per share, from $591 million, or 60 cents per share, a year ago. Its shares lost early momentum and declined 28 cents to $24.84.The base metals sector slipped almost one per cent with copper prices off three cents at US$3.35 a pound after falling seven cents on Monday. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) declined 39 cents to $29.41 while Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN) gave back 27 cents to $8.10.The financial sector dropped 0.85 per cent with Royal Bank (TSX:RY) down 70 cents to $50.82.

Search for missing plane resumes amid anger from families of passengers

first_imgAUSTRALIA PREPARED TO resume its search for possible plane wreckage floating in a remote and stormy section of the Indian Ocean, as the vast international hunt for a missing passenger jet entered its 13th day.Surveillance aircraft on Thursday searched for a pair of floating objects captured by satellite imagery, which Australia and Malaysia guardedly called a “credible” lead in the baffling mystery surrounding missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.The Australian-led search was due to restart at first light, as a Norwegian merchant ship arrived in the target area about 2,500 kilometres (1,500 miles) southwest of Perth, after warnings of poor weather conditions and limited visibility.Four aircraft suspended their search at nightfall Thursday without any sighting of the possible debris after scouring a 23,000-square-kilometre (8,900-square-mile) area where the grainy images were snapped, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said.Two planes came from Australia, one from New Zealand and one was a US aircraft, while another merchant ship was en route to join Norway’s Hoegh St Petersburg merchant ship.The Australian navy’s HMAS Success was also headed for the area, and Britain sent a naval survey ship, HMS Echo.Australia said the satellite-captured objects — the largest was estimated at 24 metres (79 feet) across — raised hopes of a breakthrough in the Malaysian plane’s mysterious disappearance as relatives of the 239 people aboard braced for another emotional roller-coaster.“We now have a credible lead,” Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said during Malaysia’s daily briefing on the crisis.“There remains much work to be done to deploy the assets.”The objects would have drifted for four days, making them a “logistical nightmare” to locate, said Australian Defence Minister David Johnston.“We are in a most isolated part of the world. In fact it probably doesn’t get, if I can be so bold, more isolated,” Johnston told Sky News Australia.He was later quoted as saying it could take “two or three days” before any firm conclusions are made.AngerRelatives of Chinese passengers on board MH370 vented their fury in their first meeting in Beijing with Malaysian government officials, almost two weeks after the aircraft vanished.The event began in angry fashion, with family members yelling at the group of political representatives and senior military officials to stand up when they were being introduced, rather than nodding while sitting down.“You have wasted so much time,” shouted one anguished relative, his voice quivering.Chinese citizens make up 153 of those on board Malaysia Airlines flight 370 — two-thirds of the total — and the meeting took place at a hotel where their loved ones have been waiting for news.© – AFP 2014 Read: Objects in Indian Ocean could be missing Malaysian Airlines planelast_img read more

RODNEY ADAMS TO ASK FOR POLICE JOB BACK

first_img TCI Police reach out to Bahamas hurricane victims Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 19 Nov 2014 – The highest thanks for his vindication from charges of unethical behavior as a police officer goes to God; that was the final wording in a Press Release issued by very likely, soon to be reinstated Deputy Commissioner of Police Rodney Adams. Adams said he was always confident that his innocence would have been proven… I quote him now: “Now that this matter has run its course and has been resolved by the court, I will be officially advising HE the Governor’s Office and the Commissioner of Police that I am available to continue my duties as a police officer.” Adams, who has been on the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force since 1984 explained: “I do so out of a sense of commitment and duty to my country and to the many young officers of the Police Service who seek a role model to aspire to.” Naturally, Mr Adams was also thankful to his family. He had been charged by the Integrity Commission with five counts of breaching the ordinance; three charges were dropped, one the jury was instructed to return a not guilty verdict on and the final was deliberated for three hours before a not guilty was delivered late day Monday November 17.

How bold Governors climate action team talks emissions reduction goals and education

(Photo by Elizabeth Harball/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Governor Bill Walker’s Climate Action Task Force met Wednesday to discuss a draft document that could influence the state’s climate change policy in the future.Listen nowThe Climate Action Task Force had something new to work with this week: A report from the Oil and Gas Technical Committee, which is a group made up of task force members and a mix of volunteers and includes representatives from industry.Overall, that report suggests that hard numbers for reducing carbon emissions won’t come easy — especially since industry emissions have already decreased between 2005 to 2015. Though, economists aren’t entirely sure why.But the governor’s task force is still trying to set some clear goals. The current draft plan includes language to reduce oil and gas emissions by 30 percent over 2005 levels by 3030.To help achieve that, the document includes the prospect of upgrading North Slope’s energy infrastructure. On the conference call, Alaska Energy Authority Executive Director Janet Reiser says that project seems like a heavy lift.“I see big concerns about the ability of this project to be economic or even beneficial to any real degree” Reiser said.There was another sticking point in the nearly two-hour long meeting: Should the task force include the words “climate change” in its policy statement on science education and encourage more curriculum related to that? It was included in an earlier draft.Larry Hinzman, a Vice Chancellor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, suggested treading lightly.“If people think we are trying to indoctrinate their children, you know, that could kill the whole program,” Hinzman said.But Mark Masteller — the task force member who helped craft the policy statement — disagreed.“We’re using ‘climate change’ in many parts of the document,” Masteller said. “What our charge is, is to lead on the issues related to climate change.”In the end, the task force seemed to come to a broad conclusion to act bold and potentially include the language.Their next in-person meeting is August 2 in Anchorage. The task force hopes to have the draft policy completed by September.last_img read more

Samsungs new flash chips for mobile devices

first_img Samsung Shipping Samples of New High-capacity NAND Solution to Mobile Customers Explore further The removable SD flash card is only 1 mm thick and 0.7 mm high and will come into production in February. The card comprises a card controller and eight 30-micron thick stacked chips. Samsung says it is the highest capacity microSD ready for production. Users will be able to insert the 32-Gbyte micro SD card into their phone or other device via the built-in micro SD slot. The 64-Gbyte flash chip is 1.4 mm thick and consists of sixteen stacked chips and a storage controller. This moviNAND embedded memory module has been in commercial production since December last year and will be the first to reach the marketplace. It doubles the memory of current memory modules such as that in the latest Apple iPhone.Higher capacity devices such as Samsung’s new offerings will allow mobile devices such as smartphones and media players to have increased memory, and demand for more memory is expected to increase as the market for mobile devices and the applications they run continues to grow. Executive President of Memory Marketing for Samsung, Dong-Soo Jun, said the new memory solutions will bring the storage capacity of computers to mobile devices.The expected cost of the two new high-density storage devices has not been released. (PhysOrg.com) — Samsung Electronics has announced two new flash chip storage devices for mobiles: a removable 32-Gbyte micro SD (secure digital) card and a 64-Gbyte moviNAND flash memory module. Both are based on Samsung’s own 30 nanometer class 32-Gbyte NAND flash memory chips, which use lithography technology that allows much more storage in a smaller unit. © 2010 PhysOrg.comcenter_img Samsung 32GB microSD memory card Citation: Samsung’s new flash chips for mobile devices (2010, January 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-01-samsung-chips-mobile-devices.html This document is subject to copyright.
