Victim tells court she relived fear of Brazeaus alleged attack listening to

first_imgJorge BarreraAPTN National NewsThe sound of a weeping woman’s voice filled the Gatineau, Que., courtroom Tuesday, on the second day of suspended Senator Patrick Brazeau’s trial on assault and sexual assault charges.The Crown played two recordings of 911 calls made shortly after 9 a.m. on Feb. 7, 2013, from the rented Gatineau house where Brazeau lived with a woman.The second day of the trial began with a continuation of the victim’s testimony of the alleged break-up attack she endured at the hands of Brazeau, who was still a Conservative Senator at the time.Brazeau has pleaded not guilty to the charges.The 911 recordings were of a woman’s voice who, through sobs, said her partner had assaulted her and she needed police help.“My (partner) hit me,” said the woman.-snip-“Is he in the house?” said the male police officer who answered the second 911 call.“Yes,” said the woman, between sobs.“What’s his name,” said the officer.“Patrick Brazeau,” said the woman.As the audio played, the victim began to cry quietly as she stood facing the judge, Brazeau and his lawyers to her right, the Crown prosecutors to her left.The victim testified before the Crown played the 911 recordings that she went to the kitchen to call police after Brazeau sexually assaulted her with his finger a second time while she was on her hands and knees on the stairs. She said Brazeau had his arm around her neck and used his fingers to penetrate her buttocks area. The victim said the land-line telephone in the kitchen was disconnected and then she went to the bathroom to call the police with her cell phone. She didn’t know who disconnected the land-line.The first call from 911 at 9:04 a.m. was cut short. The 911 operator asked , “what is your emergency?”The woman on the other end said, “Is this the police?”Then the line went dead. The 911 operator called back and it rang about 8 times with no answer.The victim testified she didn’t remember making the first phone call.She called 911 back at 9:06 a.m. and her called was answered by the male police officer.The Crown asked the victim what she felt while listing to the 911 call.“It made me relive what I was feeling that day, the fear,” she said.The Crown submitted photographs taken of the victim’s injuries shortly after police arrived at the home. Judge Valmont Beaulieu ruled that the photos of injuries to the woman’s buttocks area could not be published by the media.The jeans the victim wore that day were also submitted as evidence and the victim held them in her hands. The button to fasten the jeans was missing and the zipper was broken, she said.A button was found on the floor by police. The victim has testified Brazeau forcibly yanked down her pants to sexually assault her.The victim also testified how she found her ripped purple turtleneck hidden beneath Brazeau’s dresser in the bedroom after she returned to the house with two officers to retrieve some of her belongings later that fateful Thursday.The victim testified Monday she was holding the sweater in her hands when Brazeau allegedly attacked her. She said Brazeau ripped the sweater. The sweater was entered as evidence Monday along with a ripped piece of cloth. She said the sweater was left on the stairs after the attack.The victim also told the court she deleted intimate videos of her and Brazeau from a video camera when she returned to the bedroom with police at the time she found the sweater hidden.Tuesday began with the Crown asking her to draw, roughly, the places in the house where she said Brazeau attacked her. With black and pink markers she was asked to mark the places where he sexually assaulted her. She was also asked to draw a stick-man Brazeau to show where he was during the first sexual assault. The Crown also asked the victim to mark with a pink x the place where Brazeau slammed her head against a wall.The Crown also asked the victim about pictures Brazeau took down from the wall following the alleged attack. The victim said she saw Brazeau take down some of the pictures after she called police. She said she didn’t see him take down the photograph of her, Brazeau and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. She also said she didn’t know who ripped the photograph, which has the stamp of the Prime Minister’s Office at the bottom.Police photo of broken railingThe trial continues Tuesday afternoon with more from the victim along with testimony from the two police officers who were first at the home following the 911 call.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Court reserves order in defamation case against Tharoor

first_imgNew Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday reserved its order on issuing summons to Congress Lok Sabha member Shashi Tharoor in a defamation complaint filed by the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rajeev Babbar. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal said that he will deliver the order, on whether to summon Tharoor or not, on April 22. The court was hearing a criminal defamation complaint against Tharoor for his comment that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is “a scorpion seated on a Shiv-ling”. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ Babbar has filed the complaint alleging that Tharoor made the statement with mala fide intention, which not only denigrates the Hindu deity but is also defamatory. Babbar requested the court to initiate proceeding against Tharoor under Section 499/500 (defamation) of the Indian Penal Code. Speaking at the Bangalore Literature Festival on October 28, 2018, Tharoor had said: “Modi is like a scorpion sitting on a Shiv-ling. You cannot remove him with your hand and you cannot hit it with a ‘chappal’ (slipper) either.” Babbar said he was hurt by the comment as it is not only baseless, but also misleading and defamatory. He also told the court that he considers Modi an inspiration, and has the highest regards for the Prime Minister.last_img read more

NEW FORCE ON PAPER IN KIELCE Uros Zorman to scare as new

Legendary Slovenian playmaker Uros Zorman ended professional career last summer at PGE Vive Kielce and began to work as first assistant of Talant Dujshebaev in coaching staff, but he will be avaliable to “jump in” as a player in the upcoming months.The Polish champions struggling with a lot of injuries in back-line, where Cindric, Kulesz and Jurkiewicz are out of the roster currently. Dujshebaev was forced to put Zorman on the list of licensed players for domestic Super League and EHF Champions League. However, he isn’t happy with that and will use Zorman only as the last solution.We put him on the list in the last minute. It is beter to do it now than later, because it is free. However, I am against to see him again at the court. He must be focused on his duties in coaching staff. I could use him for domestic league matches to give a chance Luka Cindric to rest few minutes, but that is really last solution – said Dujshebaev, writes echodnia.com.

Next Version of Android is Actually Ice Cream Sandwich

first_imgWe know two things about Google’s Android naming conventions. First, they all revolve around dessert foods. Second, they’re all alphabetical. Thus far, we’ve had Cupcake (1.5), Donut (1.6), Éclair (2.0), Froyo (2.2), Gingerbread (2.3), and Honeycomb (3.0). So, what’s next? Well, we’ve all been calling Android 3.1 (or is it 4.0?) “Ice Cream.” Turns out we’ve all been wrong–or at least incomplete. According to a story up today at TechCrunch, that operating system will actually be named “Ice Cream Sandwich.” The new name confirmation came from Andy Rubin himself. Says TechCrunch’s Jason Kincaid, “Android chief Andy Rubin told me so. Really, he did.”The problem with Ice Cream? Apparently it looks to much like Froyo (i.e., frozen yogurt). Since Google has taken to constructing big statues to the dessert of choice on its campus. A giant Ice Cream would just create chaos.last_img read more

Googles Open Project lets you share scale and control apps on a

first_imgThe logical evolution of services like Chromecast and Airplay is an interactive setup that allows you to control the app from either screen. Fortunately, it looks like Google is already on top of that with Open Project.Being able to beam content from one screen to another over a network is great, but ultimately a limited experience. In an ideal world, you’d be able to reach out and interact with the projected content. Of course, you’d also need the surface receiving the video to be touch capable, and even then you’d be using the touch elements on a remotely connected display to issue commands. The idea is undeniably cool, though, and Google calls it Open Project.Rather than project the content from an app, like we currently see with Chromecast and Airplay do, Open Project sends the entire app from the source device to the receiving screen. It uses a QR code to pair the devices, and then allows the controlling device to define the size and placement of the projection.Once the app appears on the destination screen, the app is able to receive commands from the receiving touch device as though the it is running locally instead of on the source device. Plus, as the name suggests, the platform is designed to be a totally open solution for many kinds of touch displays.The end result is a system that allows users the ability to share entire apps for a variety of purposes. Collaboration is possible with this experience, or maybe you’ve decided to project a puzzle game to a larger screen to better enjoy the experience.The possibilities with this concept are really exciting if you are already using a larger touch display in your day to day life. Even if you aren’t, chances are you will be in the near future as it becomes a standard feature of any and all displays.last_img read more

Top Coastie Guard Is 75 Percent Reconstituted after Shutdown

first_img ADC AUTHOR The Coast Guard is still recovering from the partial government shutdown that stopped the branch’s funding for 35 days in December and January, Commandant Adm. Karl Schultz told Congress Tuesday.The Guard has recovered to about 75 percent of its capability, Schultz said, according to The Hill.“Some things we never get back,” he said. “We had to defer boat maintenance periods, those are our fleets of hundreds of small boats, cutter maintenance periods, some of that just got pushed to the right. We had furloughed contracting officers, so you just can’t do that kind of work. That is not recoverable.”The Coast Guard is funded through the Homeland Security appropriations bill, which was the sticking point in the debate that led to the shutdown late last year. Congress had already approved funding for the other military branches, so their operations were not affected.Schultz assured lawmakers the Coast Guard will be in a better position “in the next month or so.”Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Jetta Discolast_img read more

NASA used revolutionary HDR camera to record rocket booster test

first_imgNASA recently conducted a spectacular test of the solid rocket booster that will be part of the Space Launch System (SLS). This booster is a bigger, badder version of the one used in the Space Shuttle program, and NASA also used the test as an opportunity to try a new camera technology called High Dynamic Range Stereo X (HiDyRS-X). This allowed rocket scientists to analyze video from the test in previously unheard of detail.NASA began work on the HiDyRS-X project because no camera technology existed that could capture any details from rocket motor plumes. They’re just too bright, causing all the patterns of super-hot gas to be lost. If you lower the exposure to the point that some of that can be seen, you can no longer see important components of the rocket. The HiDyRS-X camera can capture an incredibly wide dynamic range, revealing currents in the exhaust as well as keeping the rocket visible.You might be familiar with high dynamic range (HDR) from your smartphone’s camera This feature lets you snap photos in settings where there are both bright and dim areas. A single exposure would either blow out the bright areas or under-expose the dim ones. By combining multiple exposures, HDR can make both visible in one image. This is the same premise at work in HiDyRS-X, but on a much larger scale. The HiDyRS-X can capture high-speed video with orders of magnitude higher dynamic range than your smartphone.The NASA team set up the HiDyRS-X camera and did several test runs prior to the rocket test, which took place earlier this summer at Orbital ATK’s test facility in Promontory, Utah. The footage captured is amazing, as you can see. Scientists note that the intricacies revealed in the plume have never been captured before. However, the team underestimated the power of NASA’s new booster. The shaking caused by the test firing shook the camera’s power cable loose after about two minutes. Hey, two minutes of unprecedented video of a rocket plume is better than none. After all, this is rocket science.last_img read more

Sonys new epaper watch runs for weeks on a charge

first_imgOne final thing that’s changing is the price. The original FES Watch sold for around $250. Pre-orders for the FES Watch U are starting at roughly $440. That’s not slowing things down, however. Sony’s already a third of the way to their ¥20 million goal with more than a month to go in the campaign. <> Sony surprised everyone last year by crowdfunding a high-tech watch that eschewed smarts for fashion sense. Now they’re ready to do it all over again.The original FES Watch became a reality after hitting Sony’s goal on their in-house funding site First Flight. Rather than tracking physical activity or monitoring your sleep, the FES Watch was all about personalization. Its flexible e-paper band could display a virtually endless array of monochrome patterns. The watch face could be customized, too.Thanks to the ultra-low power requirements, Sony estimated the FES Watch would run for around two years on a single coin cell (depending on how frequently you changed designs — since e-paper only draws power when the display has to update).Sony’s got a couple of big changes slated for the new FES Watch U. One is that they’re going to switch to a rechargeable battery. It won’t run for two years on a single charge, but three weeks is still a whole lot better than any smartwatch on the market right now. Recharging takes the Watch U on its included cradle takes about two and a half hours.Sony’s also introducing new colors, though they’re keeping things grayscale. The FES Watch U comes in black, white, and silver.last_img read more

Automation Is Becoming a Business Imperative Dont Wait Until Its Too Late

first_img 7 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global April 17, 2019 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Machines haven’t yet supplanted human workers en masse, but at the World Economic Forum’s 2019 meeting in Davos, Switzerland, corporate executives revealed they’re facing massive pressure from shareholders and boards to meet short-term profit demands. Automation has been the response across the board.In a 2017 global survey on robotic process automation, Deloitte found that more than half of its respondents were already using machines to perform jobs previously carried out by humans.Job security concerns aside, people tend to agree that machines make work easier. In fact, in a survey by KRC Research, nearly 80 percent of executives polled agreed that they could save 360 hours a year through automation. These findings aren’t just important for leaders of large businesses, either. As a startup founder, you should be paying attention, too.Related: AI and Automation to Have Far Greater Effect on Human Jobs by 2022 (Infographic)Where can automation lend a hand?Labor is typically one of the largest line items on a business’s balance sheet — if not the largest. You don’t have to look far to find examples of how technology can help you cut down labor costs: fewer opportunities for human error, fewer unproductive work hours, less time lost to vacation or personal days, reduced training and HR costs, lower chances of on-the-job injuries, etc. But the benefits extend beyond improving financial health.Speed is another area in which automation shines. Automation technology can enable you to bring products to market faster and fulfill contract requirements sooner (and enable you to take on more contracts). It also puts in longer hours than competitors can when they rely solely on a human workforce.So, really, the question is no longer whether you should automate but what and where you should automate. First, identify repetitive, manual processes. Example? Consider mail management: Manual sorting is slow, mail gets lost, junk mail is inescapable, routing errors are frequent, and visibility into processing metrics is low.Similarly, front-office workers may experience frequent downtime and have little direct impact on ROI. In both cases, basic automated technologies may be suitable replacements for human laborers.Additionally, evaluate the efficiency of your data ingestion and the handling of workflows to uncover business areas that could benefit from cognitive automation. If your workflow is dominated by paper documents and requires a large data-entry staff, for example, cognitive automation will provide a major benefit.Related: 3 Ways Intelligent Automation Can Help Grow Your BusinessAre you ready to make the leap?Effective technology implementations typically involve significant up-front time and capital investments. Internal audits are necessary to determine the size and scope of your needs, and an automated system must be piloted and tested before use. Prior to making a major change, you should assess current production processes to ensure that contracted service-level agreements will be met while an automation strategy is being implemented.If you’re trying to decide whether a commitment to automation is right for your company, here are four big questions you need to ask yourself:1. Is the process scalable?Automating a few disparate tasks isn’t going to show much ROI. On the other hand, automating the work of many small teams performing various intertwined tasks will provide greater value and may significantly increase workers’ productivity. In fact, the study from KRC Research found that 53 percent of employees surveyed said that automation could save them 240 hours per year.Automating marketing efforts is a great example of a scalable process that can take tedious tasks off employees’ hands. Of course marketing is crucial for budding businesses as they build their brand familiarity among consumers, so it may seem counterintuitive to try to build real connections by automating the process.But this task doesn’t have to be all that impersonal. For example, you can automate systems to personalize emails and send them out at certain times along the buyer’s journey.Related: How AI Is Driving Marketing AutomationWhatever process you hope to automate, start by determining whether your approach could be expanded to cover a sizable portion of your total operation. The more comprehensive your automation strategy, the greater your returns.2. Is the margin of error low enough?When precision is imperative and tolerances are small, machines make great workers. For example, if you have an employee whose job is to cut pieces of metal to specific lengths, that person is unlikely to be able to recreate the tolerance levels of a machine — at least not at the same speed — no matter how long he or she has been cutting metal.When repetitive processes have exacting standards, machines almost always do a better job.Take Adidas’ Speedfactory — whose second outlet opened in Atlanta last year. This factory harnesses an automated engineering process to create customized shoes. According to Adidas, this automation technology has enabled the company to produce shoes at a pace three times faster than that of manual means. And that speed allows Adidas to keep up with demand and ensure quality control, as making these customized shoes requires great precision.3. Are you manually processing big data?Automation technology is not limited to physical processes. We’re now seeing useful applications of cognitive automation software capable of ingesting massive amounts of structured and unstructured data, analyzing it and generating valuable business intelligence to enable better decision-making. If you have workers crunching numbers and running analytical models, there may be room for intelligent systems to assist with that work or even take it over.Amazon has used robots for years to help its warehouse workers move products around the premises. Now, the company is also relying on software to make critical inventory decisions once left to white-collar workers commanding six-figure salaries. Amazon’s “hands off the wheel” initiative not only helps to reduce costs, but over time will likely lead to better strategic decision-making, as machines continue to learn and improve.4. Are you ready for the monetary investment?Before spending big money on expensive software or machinery, look at the financials. Implementing automation often involves a large up-front investment — and maintaining and improving your technology is an ongoing effort. You’ll likely have to borrow money, so get very familiar with your total labor costs, production estimates, compliance costs, etc.Map out your time frame for ramping up the technology, how much you should expect to save over a longer period of time and your break-even point.The good news is that according to Deloitte’s 2017 RPA survey, companies reported seeing payback on their investments in less than a year; robots, the survey showed, provided about a fifth of full-time equivalent capacity. Furthermore, 59 percent of organizations surveyed said that their investment ultimately led to reduced costs.Related: 3 Ways Intelligent Automation Can Help Grow Your BusinessYour people are often your greatest asset and a key differentiator. But that doesn’t mean you should ignore the potential of automation. Automation can enhance productivity and improve workflows across the board at companies of all sizes. Adding machines and intelligent software to your workforce rarely makes your existing employees useless; more often, it actually makes them even more productive. Register Now »last_img read more

US sisters help Cyprus human trafficking NGO

first_imgTwo siblings from the United States have been praised in Cyprus for their efforts to help a local NGO that aims to combat human trafficking.The girls, Hunter and Sophia Petmecky, are twin sisters aged 12 from Los Angeles. They sought to do some volunteer work and got in touch with the NGO Cyprus Stop Trafficking.Their links with Cyprus are through their mother who comes from the island and knows the head of the NGO Androulla Christofidou.The girls contacted her and the organisation agreed that the sisters could take a series of photographs for an annual calendar it publishes in a bid to raise money.Speaking to the Cyprus Mail, their aunt Lietta Christofidou said the sisters took a series of nature photos over Easter during a family road trip across the US.They sent the photos to Cyprus Stop Trafficking, who decided to use them in the calendar.Taking it a step further, they sought to raise money for printing the calendar by selling fresh lemonade and cookies with their friends.The NGO said the twins managed to gather $301 but the printers at Irida Graphic Arts were so moved by the gesture that they printed it for free.Hunter and Sophia came to Cyprus at the end of June to see how their hard work has paid off. On Friday, they met with Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou who congratulated them for their initiative to help trafficking victims.The sisters also visited Open House, which houses and protects victims.According to their aunt, they were incredibly moved by the visit where they met with human trafficking victims.“They saw one 16-year-old who had a child as a result of rape,” and thought it could have easily been them.Although they were sad to see the harsh reality of human trafficking they were glad to have volunteered for the project.The Petmecky sisters were also invited to the US embassy in Nicosia, their aunt said.The calendar is for sale at the NGO and the bookshop La Boite a Lire in Nicosia, Loizoudi in Nicosia and Limassol and Abitare Fabrics for €10, although people are welcome to donate more.You May LikeNetWorth MagazineWheel Of Fortune’ Host Pat Sajak Lives With His Partner In This Gorgeous HouseNetWorth MagazineUndoInnoTechRV, LLCTire Pressure Monitoring Systems for RVs and TrucksInnoTechRV, LLCUndoUPRIGHT GO Posture Training DeviceThis Innovative Gadget Will Fix Your Nasty Slouching Habit Over TimeUPRIGHT GO Posture Training DeviceUndo Film review: Child’s Play ***UndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
