Democrats target Trumps inner circle in probe

first_imgUS president Donald Trump addresses the National Association of Attorneys General in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, DC on 4 March. Photo: AFPUS Democratic lawmakers on Monday launched their most ambitious investigation yet into alleged obstruction of justice and abuse of office by Donald Trump, targeting dozens of individuals in the president’s inner circle.With controversies swirling around Trump, the powerful House Judiciary Committee’s chairman sent strongly worded letters to family members of the president — including sons Don Jr and Eric — as well as political confidantes and related entities.The letters demanded documents that could shed light on possible wrongdoing by the administration and Trump himself.Son-in-law Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization’s long-time chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, were among the 81 people and organizations, such as the National Rifle Association, that received letters from the panel’s Democratic chairman Jerry Nadler.They also include White House ex-aides Steve Bannon and Hope Hicks, current Trump personal lawyer Jay Sekulow, former attorney general Jeff Sessions, and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.The request is the most serious overt ramp-up of investigations into Trump since Democrats took control of the House of Representatives in early January, and seeks to uncover whether Trump or his administration have participated in obstruction of justice or public corruption — potentially impeachable offenses.”This is a critical time for our nation, and we have a responsibility to investigate these matters and hold hearings for the public to have all the facts,” Nadler said in a statement.”Over the last several years, president Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms,” he added.”Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress.”Political hoax?Trump himself swatted away the probe as a “political hoax,” but said he would cooperate with the probe.”I cooperate all the time with everybody,” he said at a White House event.He later hardened his reaction, tweeting that any effort by Democrats to probe new avenues of possible wrongdoing “will never work.”Nadler has given the recipients of his requests two weeks to respond.Conspicuously absent among his 81 targets is the president’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, who is a senior White House advisor and is married to Kushner.The chairmen of three other House panels also joined the fray Monday, demanding the White House produce details of communications between Trump and Putin, after reports that such information was destroyed or hidden in the aftermath of their 2017 Helsinki summit.The US intelligence community has concluded that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, and that Putin ordered the influence campaign as a way to help elect Trump. The US president has repeatedly cast doubt on the findings.Nadler’s broad investigation is focused on Trump’s business dealings and obstruction of justice allegations, along with possible Russian collusion.It also will address accusations of campaign finance law violations and potential violations of the US Constitution’s ban on foreign emoluments.Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, in explosive congressional testimony last week, implicated the president in illegal activities, including a scheme shortly before the 2016 election to pay hush money to two women who say they had affairs with Trump.One of the women reportedly received the payoffs through American Media Inc, a company run by a longtime Trump ally, David Pecker.Pecker and AMI both received letters from Nadler demanding information about their involvement.Letters to other key players include requests for information on the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower attended by Kushner, Trump Jr, now-jailed former campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Russian lawyer reportedly close to the Kremlin, and documents surrounding the termination of FBI director James Comey.The expansive new probe suggests the potential for laying the groundwork for possible impeachment proceedings against Trump.But Democratic congressional leaders including Nadler and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been reticent about pushing for the president’s impeachment.Nadler told ABC on Sunday that such action would be “a long way down the road.”But in the same interview, he said that “it’s very clear that the president obstructed justice.”In addition to the NRA, Nadler also sought documents from the White House, the Trump Organization, Trump’s charity, the FBI and Cambridge Analytica, a data company that worked with the Trump campaign and has been investigated by Congress in connection with Russia’s election interference efforts.last_img read more

Grinch Bots Attempt To Steal Christmas By Driving Up Toy Prices

first_imgThen he got an idea, an awful idea. The Grinch got a wonderful, awful idea.I know just what to do, the Grinch laughed in his throat. All it will take is a few keystrokes.But of course he didn’t actually muse. Because the Grinch in this case is a bot. It’s automatic. It doesn’t snooze.Online scammers with an arsenal of cyber bots are stealing Christmas by buying up the most popular toys of the season and selling them for a hefty markup on third-party sites such as Amazon and eBay.While the demand for the hottest toys is particularly high this time of year, shoppers are competing against a growing army of bots. For years, scalpers have taken advantage of software robots to scoop up event tickets, but now scammers are employing the same tactics to cheat Christmas shoppers, says MSNBC anchor and economics correspondent Ali Velshi.“Regular people could never buy them at face value,” he tells Here & Now’s Robin Young. “The idea that it was bots — scalpers using algorithms — to buy up all the tickets in the first place, and then sell them either via a third-party vendor or independently to people, and this has now moved its way into the hot holiday toy sales industry.”Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling on retailers to crack down on “Grinch bots” who use complex software to identify the product page of a popular toy before it even goes on sale. The program rapidly purchases thousands of products before customers have time to buy them. Oh, the Whomanity!“Grinch bots cannot be allowed to steal Christmas, or dollars, from the wallets of New Yorkers,” Schumer said. “Middle class folks save up — a little here, a little there — working to afford the hottest gifts of the season for their kids but ever-changing technology and its challenges are making that very difficult. It’s time we help restore an even playing field by blocking the bots.”Velshi says consumers are encountering hundreds of percent markups over retail on these products. For instance, the must-have Fingerlings, the interactive animal-shaped toys, sell at a retail price of $14.99, but have been showing up on websites for as much as $1,000. The Super Nintendo NES Classic Edition, which is currently out of stock on most sites, is being sold for nearly $13,000 by third-party sellers.Schumer wrote a letter to the National Retail Federation and the Retail Industry Leaders Association this week urging them to investigate infiltration of their members’ websites by these computer programs. Both retail associations agreed to heed the New York Democrat’s call.“Retailers want to ensure that items purchased from their stores and online are purchased legitimately. The industry is committed to taking precautions to mitigate fraud and illegal transactions to ensure American consumers have a safe and secure holiday shopping experience,” Christin Fernandez, a spokesperson for the Retail Industry Leaders Association, said in a statement.Last year, Congress tried to block cyber scalping by passing the Better Online Ticket Sales Act of 2016, but that law only applies to event tickets.“There is simply no competition between a bot and even the most organized human,” Omri Iluz, co-founder and CEO of PerimeterX, a Silicon Valley-based startup that designs anti-bot technology, told Consumer Reports, adding that bots aggressively mine thousands of sites at hundreds of times per second, preparing to pounce when a product is launched.Velshi says people should find out the retail price of a product before they begin shopping to avoid being scammed.“The problem is these bots find out things are popular before people do themselves,” he says. “So by the time you’ve decided this is all the rage because you’ve heard about it from your kid’s friends or from someone else, it’s hard to” buy it.While avoiding the “holiday who-be what-ee” may explain the appeal of online shops, Velshi says maybe this year, consider the store to keep away from bots.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Game Saturday Final Fight LNS

first_imgGame Saturday: Final Fight LNS by Martin Brinkmann on January 26, 2019 in Games – 2 commentsFinal Fight LNS is a free game by Final Fight fans. The Final Fight series of video games was a popular arcade game series by Capcom that found its way on various home consoles later on.Final Fight was a side scrolling fighting game, a subgenre of fighting games that was very popular in the 80’s and 90’s.Final Fight LNS plays exactly like any other Final Fight game you may have played; that is not a bad thing, and since it comes with extra features and is free, is highly recommended for any gamer who likes side scrolling beat em up games.The game is divided into multiple levels and different stages that all scroll horizontally based on the player’s movement and stage boundaries.Players encounter a variety of bad guys that require different defeating strategies. While you can smash the attack button when it comes to some, others use special attacks of their own or throw knifes at you instead.While you can download the game from the developer website, it is recommended to download it from Archive.org instead as it is faster and does not require forum registration.Final Fight LNSYou can run the game right after you have extracted its archive on the local system, it does not need to be installed. The initial loading takes a couple of seconds.The game offers several game modes but most of those are locked when you first start it. In fact, the one mode that is available on first start is Arcade.Arcade plays similarly to classic Final Fight games but makes some important changes. First, the basics:Each player has control over three buttons that attack, jump or block when executed. You may combine buttons and moving around to create different kinds of attacks or power attacks. A simple example is that you can combine jump and attack to execute a kick while jumping.One special feature of the game is that you may play with up to four players locally. The original Final Fight games supported co-op play only and that was a lot of fun already.With four players, things can get chaotic especially if friendly fire is turned on.You may select one out of seven characters in the beginning which you may know from previous Final Fight games. Each character has different attacks and specials; you may play classic characters such as Haggard, Cody, or Guy.The game plays with the keyboard or gamepads; a gamepad is highly recommended as it is easier to execute special and ultimate moves.Once you have selected Arcade you are asked to pick a difficulty level. Final Fight LNS supports five. Pick the easiest one if you want credits (use when you die) and easier enemies, or any of the more challenging difficulty levels if you want less credits (or none) and harder to beat enemies.Arcade game play is stage and level based. The game saves whenever you make it to the end of a level, often after beating one of the numerous boss enemies.Player characters and enemies have health; you defeat enemies when their health bar reaches zero. Players may spend lives, if any are left, to respawn or credits, if any are left, to continue playing.Once you beat Arcade, you unlock other game modes. You can play Boss Rush mode to fight one boss after the other, versus to play against another human player, or other game modes such as Capcom Allstars or Volleybred.You unlock more characters as you beat the game in various modes and difficulty levels.The game plays to a large extend like the original, and that includes situations where enemies combo you death. It is possible that I’m not good enough of a player to get out of these situations, but it is highly frustrating if you play on one of the harder difficulty levels.While we are at it; usability could improve in some areas as well. I could not figure out how to go back to the main menu after entering a game (except for game over) or increase the screenshot resolution. It would also be nice if the developers would add an option to create saves manually as it would make the game less frustrating for casual players.Closing WordsFinal Fight LNS is a big game that offers lots of game modes and days of fun especially if you play the game with human players. It is an excellent game all in all.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 6 votes Software Name Final Fight LNSOperating System WindowsSoftware Category GamesLanding Page http://fflns.com/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Town of Turrialba unfazed by volcanic activity

first_imgTURRIALBA, Cartago — Ask Milagro Rowe Arias if she’s afraid of the Turrialba volcano, and she’ll laugh. “No,” she says, bemused.This may seem cavalier, considering Rowe lives only 20 kilometers from the highly active metamorphic mountain, in a town that shares the same name. This has been a dramatic year for the volcano in Cartago province, which registered numerous explosions this past week, including a geyser of “incandescent material” on Friday night.But Rowe is unconcerned. She shares a common sentiment in the town of Turrialba, home to some 35,000 people: the eruptions have almost no effect on valley residents. There have been no toxic gases, no monsoons of ash, not even a funny smell.The mountain may loom on the horizon, and locals have watched the plumes of smoke rise as high as 1,500 meters above the summit, but the people of Turrialba have only shrugged their shoulders.“People stopped in the street and took pictures with their phones,” Rowe said with a giggle. “It was very funny.”Rowe manages the Wagelia Hotel in downtown Turrialba, and if anyone should be concerned about volcanic activity, it’s Rowe.But in 20 years of working in the industry, Rowe claims that recurring volcanic activity has no negative impact on tourism. If anything, the eruptions are a draw.“Everybody wants to see the volcano,” Rowe exclaimed. “It’s one of the main reasons they come here.”Because the town and volcano share the same name, outsiders assume that Turrialba is currently caked in cinders. Locals say they routinely receive worried phone calls from family in other parts of the country.Turrialbeños seem sympathetic to the plight of Central Valley residents, who have been feeling adverse effects all week, but for them the volcano is harmless.The reason: wind.“Ninety percent of the wind flows west,” Massi Devoto, director of local tourism outfit Explornatura, said.Raised in Puerto Limón, Devoto has spent 15 years in Turrialba and routinely organizes trips into the mountains.“Of course people think there is an emergency here, because we are so close to the volcano. But almost all of the ash goes to the Central Valley.”Indeed, darkness and cloud cover often make eruptions invisible to the people below. The volcano makes no audible sound in Turrialba, and while residents have felt small earthquakes during previous eruptions, no one has felt so much as a tremor this past week.Even the volcano’s explosion of “incandescent material” on Friday night went largely unobserved.“I didn’t notice anything at all,” Ivannia Paniagua Solís, a hotel housekeeper, said. Paniagua lives in Santa Cruz, the closest town to Turrialba National Park.“It wasn’t until the morning that someone told me about the eruption.”But there are secondary effects: around the forested national park, there is a ring of pastures used by local dairy farmers. During eruptions, the ash mixes into the atmosphere and causes acid rain, which contaminates the grass.During times of emergency, dairy farmers are often required to evacuate down the mountain with their herds. In the valley, these farmers rely on a network of family and friends to host their heifers until they are allowed to return.“Sometimes the farmers have to come down,” Guido Garrita Ulloa, a custodian and guide at Espino Blanco Lodge, said. “But not so much on this side of the volcano. The situation is worse on the other side.”It is the other side – the Central Valley – where the volcano has caused serious problems, grounding flights at Juan Santamaría International Airport, delaying a presidential visit to Europe, and causing watery eyes and coughing fits throughout San José.The fallout has reminded many of the Irazú eruptions from 1963 to 1965, which blanketed the Central Valley in ash.“The volcano has erupted many times,” Rowe recalled. “It’s bad in the Central Valley, but here there’s no reason for alarm, no reason to be afraid.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Turrialba Volcano spews more ash over Costa Rica’s Central Valley in Easter eruption Turrialba Volcano erupts again, raining ash over San José UPDATE: Flights at Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaría airport cancelled due to volcano eruptions Turrialba Volcano evacuation zone expanded following increased activitylast_img read more

IMF chief predicts sustainable Gulf growth

first_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix ErrorOK ErrorOK“I would like to stress the important, positive role the GCC countries play in the broader Middle East and North Africa region, and the world at large,” Lagarde said after a meeting of the six-nation GCC, which counts Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman as members.“The generous financial aid the GCC has provided to some of the Arab countries undergoing transition is helping those countries through a very difficult period,” she said. “And, at the global level, GCC countries’ oil policy has helped stabilize oil markets and counter price pressures that could have inflicted serious damage on the world economy.”She said that while other Arab economies are challenged, the GCC countries are enjoying growth that reached its highest level in eight years in 2011 at 7.5 percent.“Nevertheless, given the uncertain global outlook, continued emphasis on strengthening resilience, including in fiscal and financial sectors, will be important alongside greater focus on the foundations for longer-term growth,” she said.An IMF official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with the organization’s policy, said following the GCC’s strong performance in 2011, growth in the nations’ non-oil sectors is expected to slow as fiscal stimulus eases, but remain high by historical standards at around 6.5 and 5.6 percent in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

Abduction case remand extended

first_imgThe remand of the 46-year-old man, detained in connection with the abduction of four-year-old Marie- Eleni Grimsrud outside her kindergarten in Dasoupolis on April 27, has been extended by two more days, police said on Sunday. The four-year-old is currently with her father, who allegedly was behind the abduction.The suspect was arrested on May 5 and was initially remanded for eight days, but police requested an extension after it expired. He is alleged to have been the driver of a car spotted on CCTV footage at the time and from the place which the taxi that is believed to have taken father and child from Dasoupoli to Tseri left.On Saturday, police re-arrested a Dutch woman in connection with the case. The woman had been arrested after the April 27 abduction but was released earlier this week.Deputy police spokesman Stelios Stylianou said the 49-year-old woman was re-arrested after the police found new information. The suspect was allegedly involved in arranging a taxi to pick up the the girl and her father from Dasoupolis, where the abduction had taken place.There were claims she was also in the taxi and her DNA had been found on a bottle collected from the getaway vehicle.Data from her phone showed that she had been in contact with one of the suspects initially arrested by police.The four-year-old’s parents are divorced and she had been living in Cyprus with her mother, while her father was in Norway.

Commission is yet to announce dates for the Gujarat elections New Delhi:The Supreme Court has made a candid admission and said it was "sorry" for the delay of over a decade in commencement of criminal trial due to two conflicting orders passed by a high court judge in a single day in two different but related cases The apex court said this had created a "legal conundrum" as one order of the judge restricted further probe in the case while in the order it allowed the investigation to go on The case which was stuck in legal tangles had reached the apex court in 2009 and the woman who had initially lodged the complaint in 2004 against her own brothers over alleged grabbing of her shop had now passed away and was represented by her legal representative File image of Supreme Court AP A bench of justices RK Agrawal and Sanjay Kishan Kaul said "we are sorry to note that such a confusion has caused more than a decade’s delay in even the criminal trial commencing" and allowed the appeals of the woman In 2004 Shyam Lata a resident of Roorkee in Uttarakhand made a written complaint to the SSP of Haridwar alleging that her two brothers forged documents and signatures and claimed she had give her shop on rent to them A criminal case was lodged against her brothers alleging that they had prepared a fictitious rent receipt by forging the woman’s signatures and left its photocopy at her house for laying a false claim of tenancy On other hand one of her brothers filed a civil suit seeking to restrain her from evicting him from the premises claiming himself as a tenant of the shop on the basis of the alleged forged rent receipt The complaint was probed by the police and the investigating officer (IO) applied to the civil court for sending the rent receipts filed by the brother to an expert for comparison of signatures The civil court denied the permission but modified the relief by allowing taking of photographs of the signature by a handwriting expert for the purpose of comparison However when the handwriting expert from the forensic laboratory of Agra reached the court to take pictures the permission was allegedly denied by the court This resulted in the IO filing the final report saying in the absence of permission to get the signatures there was no evidence to find that the signatures were forged The woman then raised objection to the IO’s final report and simultaneously challenged the denial of permission by the civil court to the handwriting expert before a sessions court The sessions court allowed the plea of the woman and directed for sending the entire case record to the judicial magistrate Roorkee so that the required photographs may be taken and further investigation takes place The sessions court order was now challenged by the brother before the high court while parallely the judicial magistrate where the woman had filed objections to the final report of IO allowed her plea and directed for further probe This order of the judicial magistrate directing the police for further probe was also challenged by the brother in the Uttarakhand High Court Now two petitions were before the high court which were heard simultaneously and were decided by the judge in two separate judgements on the same date in 2006 In one verdict the high court modified the sessions court order and directed that the IO should be present before the civil court along with a handwriting expert on a fixed date to take photographs of the disputes as well as specimen signatures of the woman Virtually this order allowed the police to proceed further in the investigation However in the second verdict the high court judge set aside the order of judicial magistrate directing the police to further probe into the case While deciding the matter the apex court bench said that there is no doubt about the "confusing nature of contradictory orders" passed by the high court It said that high court’s first verdict allowing the handwriting expert to take picture of signatures would in "natural corollary" mean that further investigation will be carried out The top court held that the second verdict of the high court setting aside the order of judicial magistrate was not required at all" Kohli also explained why leg-spinner Amit Mishra is in the squad even though youngster Yuzvendra Chahal was picked ahead of his senior teammate.and
