New rape case opened against Oxford professor

first_imgThis articles makes reference to rape and sexual assault.A new rape and sexual misconduct investigation has been opened in Switzerland against Oxford academic Tariq Ramadan. Ramadan, who has been detained since February, already faces other similar charges in France.According to the Tribune de Genève, Geneva’s Special Prosecutor has confirmed the decision to open a formal criminal inquiry into the allegations formally lodged in April that Ramadan sexually assaulted a woman in a Geneva hotel in October 2008.The lawyer representing Romain Jordan, who came forward with the allegations, described the decision to open a formal criminal inquiry as a “major advance”, and commended the Geneva police for having “worked quickly and worked well” in pursuing charges against Ramadan.Although Ramadan is a Swiss citizen, Swiss prosecutors will have to travel to France to conduct questioning.The 56-year-old scholar has denied all allegations of wrongdoing. He has also complained that his continued detention in France has made it difficult for him to seek treatment for multiple sclerosis.Ramadan, an Islamic scholar and professor at St Anthony’s College, took leave from his post at Oxford University after allegations were made in November last year.In a previous statement, the University said that it “has consistently acknowledged the gravity of the allegations against Professor Ramadan”, whilst also clarifying that “an agreed leave of absence implies no presumption or acceptance of guilt.”Ramadan was questioned on Tuesday in the presence of a woman identified only as Christelle, who alleges he assaulted her in a hotel in Lyon, France in 2009. In total, four women have come forward to the police with allegations of sexual assault against Professor Ramadan.last_img read more

Bill Tightening Penalties on Synthetic Drugs Passes Unanimously

first_imgThe Indiana Senate unanimously approved House Bill 1186 on Tuesday, 48-0, giving the state code a much needed update to deal effectively with synthetic drugs.HB 1186, authored by Rep. Sharon Negele, R-Attica, and sponsored by Sen. Mike Bohacek, R-Michiana Shores, acknowledges and addresses the fact that synthetic, or lookalike drugs, have become a very real problem in Indiana.“Synthetic substances, like spice or bath salts, are created to imitate other known illegal drugs, like marijuana or cocaine,” Negele said. “However, the synthetics can sometimes be more toxic and dangerous than the drugs they mimic. By strengthening penalties, we can get these criminals off the streets and help deter the manufacture of synthetic drugs.”Under current Indiana law, synthetic drug offenses are currently classified as infractions or Class B misdemeanors. In recent years, synthetic drugs have increased in potency and are much more likely to be bought and abused in Indiana. Fentanyl analogs in particular are on the rise and are capable of causing severe harm and even death. HB 1186 changes the current classification and will ensure crimes involving synthetic or analog drugs are prosecuted the same way as the Schedule 1 drugs they are mimicking.“In my district, I have worked with youths in the juvenile justice system and seen the dangerous effects of synthetic drugs,” Bohacek said. “This bill is necessary to ensure synthetic drugs are properly categorized as well as help combat drug use in our state. If signed into law, I believe this bill would help enhance the safety of Hoosiers and our local communities.”HB 1186 is also a serious attempt at staunching the number of new drugs added to the code each year by criminalizing the analogs of already schedule controlled substances. Now, a person caught trafficking or abusing an analog of an already controlled substance would be prosecuted as if it was a controlled substance.“House Bill 1186 ensures the traffickers of dangerous synthetic drugs are punished appropriately and will effectively curb the manufacture and distribution of these extremely harmful drugs,” said David Powell, executive director of the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council. “We want to thank Rep. Negele and Sen. Bohacek for their work on this bill.”Because the bill was not changed in the Senate, HB 1186 is on its way to Gov. Holcomb for his approval.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

WHAT’S THE BEEF?

first_imgBy Tom PurcellThe World Health Organization is the United Nations’ public-health arm. I think we should change its name to the World Killjoy Organization — at least where its position on meat eating is concerned.Last week the WHO released a report that argues that meat eating can cause cancer — that colon cancer and, possibly, stomach cancer are caused by processed meats, such as ham, sausages and bacon.Why? Because the curing and smoking process produces carcinogenic chemicals — what we non-scientists refer to as flavor.Not content to vilify bacon — hey, WHO, you may as well tell us that puppies and afternoon naps are bad for us — the report says unprocessed meats, such as beef and pork, may cause colorectal, pancreatic and prostate cancer.I don’t imagine the scientists who produced this report are invited to many barbecues — and certainly not to my family’s barbecues.This summer my nephew smoked a pig in my yard. We built a make-shift block smokehouse, then spent the day setting hot coals under the dripping meat.The aroma was so wonderful that far-away coyotes howled and total strangers wandered into my yard in a trance, a big smile on their faces as they smacked their lips.I have a smaller smoker, too, that turns raw hunks of beef and pork into mouth-watering delicacies so tasty that even my elderly Aunt Edna, a lifelong churchgoer, cusses like an iron worker.And there is my glorious Weber Grill, seasoned with gunk and grease from a thousand grillings. It transforms raw T-bones and pork tenderloins into gastronomic delights so satisfying, people drive miles to my house just for a sniff of the stuff.You see, the meat products that the WHO tells us are bad for us are the same products that have been around for a long time — brought to America by immigrants who had mastered them.Take the American hot dog. It originated in Germany “from a widespread common European sausage brought here by butchers of several nationalities,” writes the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council.The hot dog has become an American staple with each American consuming 60 a year — more than 7 billion total.If meat eating and hot dogs are so bad for us, then we’re all cooked. But are we? Well, let’s put it in perspective.First, the WHO report isn’t telling us to stop eating meat — it isn’t in the business of making health recommendations and also admits that meat has healthful benefits. Its report is just warning us that there is “sufficient evidence” of an increased risk of cancer from the consumption of processed meat.Second, the scientists who reviewed the report did not reach a consensus. Though a majority of the 22 scientists who reviewed the data approved it, others had differences of opinion.“The panel’s conclusions were based primarily on epidemiological studies linking what people ate with cancers they developed later,” writes The New York Times. “Often such studies can’t prove a causal link.”Third, even if it is true that 34,000 cancer deaths annually are caused by the consumption of processed meat — the link between beef and pork and cancer are not as clear — that number pales in comparison to deaths caused by tobacco and booze.According to The Times, “Tobacco smoking causes about a million cancer deaths a year worldwide; alcohol adds another 600,000 annual cancer deaths.”So what do we make of the latest be-wary-of-meat-eating study?I’m no scientist or expert, but isn’t moderation the key? My solution is to routinely eat fruit, vegetables, fish and chicken — and occasionally make beef and pork feasts on the smoker.Beyond that, what’s the beef?FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Watch Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Welcome Marcus King Band’s Royal Horns For “F.U.” At The Peach [Pro-Shot]

first_imgIn mid-July, The Peach Music Festival kicked off with an opening day lineup featuring fan-favorite rising-star artists like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Marcus King Band, Turkuaz, and Twiddle. Given the consistently high-caliber collaborations the festival hosts each year, it came as no surprise when various musicians joined forces, making for rare, exciting onstage moments.Despite all the talent at the festival, one of the most buzzed-about sets of The Peach Music Festival this year was Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s Thursday night show. As to be expected at festivals where numerous artists are on deck before and after their sets, the Baltimore-born funk-jam act took advantage of the musicians who were joining them on the Thursday lineup for The Peach. After electrifying takes on “Whoopie” and “Porcupine” to start the set, Pigeons invited out The Royal Horns—the young standout horn section for The Marcus King Band featuring saxophonist Dean Mitchell and trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson—for an energized “F.U.”, with the horns’ presence hinting at another special guest who would join the band later in the performance.Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has now released pro-shot multi-came video of The Royal Horns sit-in on “F.U.” for everyone to enjoy. Check it out below:Pigeons Playing Ping Pong w/ The Royal Horns – “F.U.”[Video: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong; Filmed by Streamboat]Following the departure of The Royal Horns, the band moved through two additional live staples “Havana” and “Julia”, easily enrapturing the crowd with their fun-loving and propulsive sound. Another standout moment of the set was the band’s take on “Lightning”, which saw the group welcome Marcus King. Predictably, the performance functioned as a rock guitar clinic, with Pigeons guitarist Jeremy Schon and the young guitar prodigy going off and exchanging fiery solos during the song’s jam portion.Continuing with the momentum built during Marcus King’s surprise sit-in, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong launched into a “Fade Fast” sandwich, using the tune to house two energetic and nostalgic tracks from The Jungle Book that the band debuted during their Disney-themed New Year’s Eve show in Covington. After jamming through “Bare Necessities” and “I Wanna Be Like You”, the band eventually jammed back into “Fade Fast” before closing out their performance at The Peach Music Festival in full with a rendition of “Fun in Funk”.You can watch a full stream of Pigeons’ explosive set below, courtesy of Michael Liacos:Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – The Peach Festival 2018 – Part 1[Video: Michael Liacos]Pigeons Playing Ping Pong – The Peach Festival 2018 – Part 2[Video: Michael Liacos]Setlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | The Peach Music Festival | Scranton, PA | 7/19/2018Set: Whoopie, Porcupine, FU*, Somethin’ 4 Ya, Havana, Julia, Lightning^, Fade Fast > I Wanna Be Like You > Bare Necessities > I Wanna Be Like You > Jam > Fade Fast, Fun in FunkNotes: * The Royal Horns sit in | ^Marcus King sit inlast_img read more

China, US will allow air carriers to double flights between nations

first_imgTopics : United Airlines said Tuesday it will increase flights to China to four flights per week from San Francisco to Shanghai starting Sept. 4, while the department said Delta Air Lines was also eligible to go from two-times weekly to four-times weekly.Delta is also going to four flights after it said in June it would operate flights to Shanghai from Seattle and Detroit beginning in July, all via Seoul. On Tuesday, Delta it would add one weekly flight from Detroit and Seattle each to Shanghai, via Seoul, beginning Aug. 24.The US government still hopes China will agree to restore full US flight rights under their bilateral aviation agreement, the Transportation Department has said, adding as China allows additional flights it will respond in kind.The US-China agreement allows both countries to operate more than 100 weekly flights between the two nations. China and the United States will each allow air carriers to double current flights to eight per week between the world’s two largest economies, the US Transportation Department said on Tuesday.The department said it will allow four Chinese passenger airlines currently flying to the United States to double flights to eight weekly round-trips, as China has agreed to allow US carriers to double flights to China.US carriers voluntary halted flights to China after the coronavirus outbreak. President Donald Trump on Jan. 31 barred nearly all non-US citizens from traveling to the United States from China.center_img The United States had threatened to bar Chinese passenger flights in June after Beijing did not immediately agree to restore flights by US airlines.In May, the Trump administration said Air China, China Eastern Airlines Corp, China Southern Airlines Co , Hainan Airlines Holding Co and their subsidiaries had to file schedules.Chinese authorities previously agreed to some changes on requirements for US carriers, including allowing temperature checks to be done before flights take off for China, rather than mid-flight as previously discussed, Reuters reported in June. last_img read more
