TWO PALESTINIANS HAVE been killed by Israeli fire, Gaza medical sources said, after four soldiers were wounded in an apparent bomb attack on the border with the Palestinian enclave.The explosion and ensuing Israeli airstrikes marked one of the most serious escalations in the Hamas-ruled enclave since the Islamist movement and Israel fought a war in 2014.Israel’s army said it attacked “18 terror targets belonging to the Hamas terror organisation” in two waves of air strikes following the blast.“Eight targets were attacked in a military compound near Deir el Balah, which belongs to the Hamas terror organisation, including weapon-manufacturing and training infrastructures,” it said in a statement.It earlier said fighter jets had targeted “six military targets in Gaza belonging to Hamas, including a terror tunnel in the Zaytun area and military compounds near Deir el-Balah and Khan Yunis”.The army also reported that a “launch was identified from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory”, with a projectile hitting near a home in a southern Israeli community.An Israeli police spokesman said the projectile had damaged a building but caused no injuries.The two Palestinian fatalities were identified by the Gaza health ministry as Salam Sabah and Abdullah Abu Sheikha, both aged 17, who were killed east of Rafah in southern Gaza.According to Palestinian eyewitnesses, they were shot by Israeli forces near the border on yesterday.The Israeli army said that its forces had fired “warning shots” at a number of Palestinians approaching the border fence “in a suspicious manner”.Speaking at a security conference in Munich last night, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had called the Gaza border incident “very serious” and pledged to “respond appropriately”.A Palestinian security source said the Israeli air strikes hit three bases belonging to Hamas in the east of the blockaded Gaza enclave.Two Palestinians were injured in the raids, Palestinian medical sources said.Earlier in the day, the army said “two soldiers were severely wounded, one moderately and one slightly” when an improvised explosive device blew up along the border fence with Gaza.None of the soldiers’ lives were in danger, a spokesman said.Palestinian security sources said the explosion took place east of the city of Khan Yunis.In response Israeli forces said a tank promptly opened fire at an “observation post” in southern Gaza, causing no injuries on the Palestinian side.‘Rogue group’Israeli army spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said a “rogue group” had claimed responsibility for the bomb blast, likely indicating one of the more radical Islamist groups who are present in Gaza.But he insisted that “from our point of view Hamas is responsible” and said the explosive had been planted during a protest arranged by the group on Friday.Israel holds the Islamist Palestinian movement Hamas responsible for any fire from the blockaded coastal enclave.The Israeli army responds automatically to any strikes on its territory, generally targeting Hamas facilities.Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, said it had fired at Israeli jets overhead. Conricus denied the claim.Hamas and Israel have fought three wars since 2008, and the last conflict in 2014 was waged in part over tunnels from Gaza that were used to launch attacks.Israeli aircraft hit Hamas targets in the southern Gaza Strip repeatedly in early February, saying Palestinians there had fired a rocket into its territory.Tensions between the Palestinians and Israel have been high since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state in December.Netanyahu will visit the White House next month, a senior US administration official told AFP on Friday.The 5 March visit comes as Netanyahu faces a scandal that has seen police recommend he be indicted for graft.© – AFP, 2018Read: Israeli police recommend charging Prime Minister Netanyahu with bribery and corruptionMore: Journalists ordered to leave courtroom in trial of Palestinian teenager accused of hitting two Israeli soldiers Two Palestinian teenagers killed by Israeli fire, medics say Four soldiers were also wounded in an apparent bomb attack on the border. http://jrnl.ie/3858445 6,272 Views The aftermath of an Israeli airstrike in Gaza city Share38 Tweet Email The aftermath of an Israeli airstrike in Gaza city Image: Mahmoud Issa via PA Images Short URL Image: Mahmoud Issa via PA Images Feb 18th 2018, 12:00 PM By AFP Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Sunday 18 Feb 2018, 12:00 PM 43 Comments read more
Catching shoplifters stealing lollies from her parents’ milkbar and attacking them with a broom, at age three, was Angela Vithoulkas’ introduction into the world of business. My generation of European or migrant children sometimes went into family business because they just didn’t know what else to do, but my brother and I actually wanted to do food.“I come from typical Greek parents who have always had their own businesses; my mother went into labour with me while she was making coffee for a customer,” Vithoulkas laughs. At nine years of age Vithoulkas would come home from school every afternoon and make 450 perfectly formed potato scallops, but it never put her off the hospitality industry. “Many people take over family businesses. My generation of European or migrant children sometimes went into family business because they just didn’t know what else to do, but my brother and I actually wanted to do food. It’s an unusual occurrence but a very happy privilege that I get to do what I love,” Vithoulkas says. The Sydneysider left school at age 17. “I never finished school. I was in a big hurry to get started on what appeared to be a big wide world,” she says. Her father offered her an apprenticeship in his restaurant as long as the kitchen staff didn’t know she was his daughter. “I spent a two year apprenticeship in a kitchen under the world’s worst chef, who treated me like a slave because I could fit in the ovens to clean them out because I was little,” she says. After two years Vithoulkas’ father said she was ready to claim her place and the first thing she did was sack the chef. Today Vithoulkas and her brother Con, run Vivo Cafe Group. “We’ve been in actual partnership for 26 years and we still talk!” Vithoulkas jokes. This comes down to common interests and a grounding in business. “Even though my parents are from a very different business era, fundamentally a lot of things in business haven’t changed, there’s still the core business values that have not altered via twitter, facebook, the internet, etc.,” Vithoulkas says. Customer service is still the key. “Retail or food are hands on; I can’t deliver food via the Internet,” she says. Being committed and driven is essential to succeed in hospitality, Vithoulkas says. “We live on deadlines made up of seconds and minutes. We don’t mass produce a vase out of a mould from a machine in a factory; every piece of toast and every piece of grilled salmon and every coffee has to be perfect and I defy any other industry to live up to that kind of standard,” she says. “I love and adore food and coffee, and it’s not something I do part-time, it’s not something that I delegate; I know what my customer wants. Many people have their bookshelves filled with crime fiction, mine are filled with cookbooks.” Competing against the 469 cafes in Sydney’s CBD, Vithoulkas says no other industry has the same kind of competition, “not even hairdressers”. “I don’t make a product that you can’t buy virtually anywhere else. The competition for what I offer is intense; you walk a few feet and there’s another cafe so you can’t just be better, you have to be excellent and that shows,” she says. Vithoulkas says cafes will always be the “poorer cousin” of fine dining restaurants, yet cafes serve ten times the volume of restaurants, and serve the same people two or three times a day, getting them to come back time after time. “They look down on us because we do vegemite toast but try doing it every day to thousands of people,” Vithoulkas says. Regardless, Vithoulkas loves her job. “I’m as excited today about the industry and the product as I was 26 years ago,” she says. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram read more
La Coupe du monde de rugby placée sous le signe du développement durableEn septembre et octobre 2011, se tiendra dans diverses villes de Nouvelle-Zélande la Coupe du monde de rugby. A la qualité des infrastructures qui accueilleront l’événement, le ministère de l’Ecologie du pays tient à allier la notion de respect de l’environnement. Plusieurs actions sont ainsi prévues pour faire de cette Coupe du monde un modèle d’eco-responsabilité.Comme le souligne le comité d’organisation de cet important événement sportif, la politique environnementale mise en place a pour ambition de “ne laisser qu’une empreinte positive sur la Terre”. Dans ce but, a notamment été développée, et ce depuis 2007, la campagne “Love NZ – Recycle with care”. Il s’agit d’un plan de recyclage des déchets doté d’un budget de quelque 4,6 millions de dollars néo-zélandais, soit 2,5 millions d’euros environ.À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéPlus de 600 points de recyclage prendront place dans les principaux lieux publics et les zones touristiques des douze villes qui accueilleront les matches de la Coupe du monde de rugby, telles que Auckland, Wellington ou Dunedin. A Kaikoura, ville située au sud du pays, les premiers points ont déjà été installés pour permettre aux spectateurs venus du monde entier de recycler verre, plastique, canettes, et autres déchets.Ce plan n’est pas la seule action éco-responsable initiée par le gouvernement néo-zélandais pour minimiser l’empreinte environnementale de l’événement. Peut aussi être citée la façon dont a été redéveloppé le célèbre et mythique stade Eden Park. Suite à la démolition de l’ancienne enceinte, 70% des matériaux de construction ont été recyclés ou réutilisés. En outre, grâce au recyclage des eaux usées et au filtrage des eaux de pluie, la consommation d’eau potable du stade devrait être réduite de moitié.De tels plans d’économie d’énergie ont été mis en place dans les autres stades qui accueilleront la compétition. C’est notamment le cas de ceux de Taranaki et de Christchurch.Le 17 novembre 2010 à 12:29 • Emmanuel Perrin read more

The La Center City Council unanimously adopted a $6.7 million 2011 budget Wednesday night.The budget includes a 1 percent increase in property taxes. The council will consider increasing sewer fees by $4 per month in February.In his budget message, Mayor Jim Irish said the city’s revenue picture is subdued as the prospect for economic recovery in 2011 remains uncertain. At the same time, a number of the city’s costs, such as health care and utilities, are going up, he said.“This budget has been developed with due consideration of the current recession that has gripped our nation and trickled down to our small city,” Irish said.The city has trimmed expenses in all areas except salary and benefits, which are tied to contracts, Finance Director Suzanne Levis said.The 2011 budget is considerably smaller than the city’s $18.1 million 2010 budget. The difference is largely due to the $9 million budgeted in 2010 to complete the wastewater treatment plant expansion. The facility now has the capacity to meet residents’ needs through 2017.The city’s general fund for 2011 is about $4 million. The budget includes $40,000 to widen and resurface paths at Holley Park and to resurface the paths along Heritage Trail and SouthView Wetlands Park.The budget also includes $400,000 to tackle the city’s top transportation improvement project: the Fifth Street and Aspen Avenue realignment. The project will align East Fifth Street with West Fifth Street at Aspen Avenue and is expected to improve visibility and safety. read more

Here, the engineers have first theoretically determined the general conditions to control and mold the transmitted light at will, ensuring at the same time zero reflections and large efficiency. Then, the researchers designed and simulated thin, patterned metasurfaces, realizing meta-transmitarrays that can control light with unprecedented efficiency over subwavelength distances. Each array consists of a symmetric stack of three ultrathin metasurfaces made of building blocks containing two alternating materials: silicon and aluminum-doped zinc oxide. By locally controlling the filling ratio of these two materials in the building blocks, the researchers could design meta-transmitarrays with a wide range of phase patterns. When these patterns are imprinted on the impinging light wave, they can manipulate the wave in one of many ways, such as by bending, focusing, or collimation. (Phys.org) —The ability to guide, bend and focus light at the nanoscale is a highly sought-after goal in the field of nano-optics. Precise and efficient light control has direct applications in solar cells, holography, nanoscale signal processing, CMOS cameras, and many other areas. In a recent study, a team of engineers has proposed a new technique for controlling light at deeply subwavelength scales using a thin stack of patterned surfaces that the engineers call a “meta-transmitarray.” The underlying physics of the new concept is very different from any conventional lens and offers greatly improved efficiency and flexibility for manipulating light transmission at the nanoscale. The researchers, Francesco Monticone, Nasim Mohammadi Estakhri, and Assistant Professor Andrea Alù at The University of Texas at Austin, have published their paper on the meta-transmit-array concept in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters, and their work has been selected as an “Editor’s suggestion.”On large scales, light can be controlled in a fairly straightforward way by using conventional dielectric lenses. But since a dielectric lens’ properties are dependent on its thickness, these lenses are generally too thick to work well for controlling light at subwavelength scales, preventing their integration into nanophotonic and optoelectronic systems. At radio frequencies, one alternative to dielectric lenses for achieving subwavelength wave control is represented by transmitarrays, which are made of ultrathin sheets called frequency selective surfaces. These surfaces can be locally modeled with circuit concepts, and can shift the phase of incoming waves at will when combined in transmitarrays. So far, transmitarrays have been demonstrated only at radio frequencies.In the new study, the researchers have integrated the concepts of transmitarrays and metamaterials, or more precisely, metasurfaces, which are the two-dimensional version of metamaterials. While bulk metamaterials are intriguing for their exotic, engineered properties that are not found in nature, they are difficult to fabricate. On the other hand, metasurfaces are planarized versions of metamaterials, with equally intriguing properties, but much easier to fabricate. Previous research has suggested that metasurfaces may be used as planar lenses to extend the concept of frequency selective surfaces beyond radio frequencies to optical frequencies, but the proposed designs had limited efficiency and applicability.

American Physical Society ©2013 Journal information: Physical Review Letters ‘Metasurfaces’ to usher in new optical technologies “Recent works have proposed metasurfaces to manipulate wave refraction at the nanoscale,” Alù told Phys.org. “First, we proved that designs based on a single surface are inherently limited in efficiency. We then proposed a realistic solution to the problem, showing that with a subwavelength stack of three metasurfaces it is possible to fully control light transmission in amplitude and phase at the nanoscale, with large efficiency and zero reflections. The paradigm we put forward is general, and can be applied to many possibilities for manipulating light, with the important further advantages of being based on CMOS-compatible materials and relative ease of fabrication.”The proposed device also provides good flexibility since its features can be tailored by modifying point-by-point the ratio of the building block materials. The researchers think that these advantages will contribute to making meta-transmitarrays an attractive way to manipulate nanoscale optical transmission for a variety of applications.”There are many applications out there that can greatly benefit from our findings,” Alù said. “The meta-transmitarray idea can have an impact in the many practical scenarios that require an efficient manipulation of the transmitted light with subwavelength resolution and within a planarized, integrated technology. Some relevant examples are holography, photovoltaics, optical tweezers, and imaging. Imagine if we could integrate one of these meta-transmitarrays on top of the CCD of a pocket camera to manipulate the impinging signal pixel by pixel. In addition, our concepts may open and foster new research areas, such as processing optical signals at the nanoscale with subwavelength resolution.”In the future, the researchers plan to work on further bringing these concepts to life.”We are working full force on seeing how we can bring this concept forward, and in what deep ways we can manipulate the optical signals over subwavelength scales using these concepts,” Alù said. “We are also working toward the experimental realization of some of these and related concepts for nanophotonic metamaterials.” read more

News | PET-CT | June 19, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/… read more Much of nuclear imaging depends on a steady supply of an isotope called molybdenum-99 (Mo-99). A byproduct of nuclear fission, Mo-99 is used to produce another radioactive substance, technetium-99m, which is employed in more than 16 million nuclear imaging procedures every year in the United States alone. These include everything from sentinel node biopsies in cancer surgery to bone scans and cardiac stress tests.Unfortunately, the supply of Mo-99 and other radioisotopes has been unreliable at best. All of the Mo-99 used in the United States is imported, with the main source being the National Research Universal (NRU) reactor at Chalk River, Ontario, Canada. A shutdown for repairs in May 2009 contributed to a global radioisotope shortage. While the reactor has been back in operation since August 2010, it is scheduled for closure in 2015.The shortage showcases a critical gap in the supply chain. Although the United States has many domestic reactors that could produce the radioisotopes, they do not have the necessary processing facilities or the capacity to take time away from other projects to produce Mo-99. As a result, new production strategies are desperately needed. For some procedures, there’s simply no alternative, and without a reliable domestic supply of isotopes, nuclear medicine would severely limit doctors’ ability to diagnose and treat many diseases.Already, some clinicians have switched to using thallium-201, which is still commonly produced and used in heart stress studies. Additionally, physicians are finding it harder to get their hands on iodine-131, another radioisotope that is used to treat thyroid cancer, Graves’ disease and hyperthyroidism. Alternatives for many procedures exist, including computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, using radioisotopes not made in nuclear reactors, but these have drawbacks ranging from increased cost and greater radiation burden to lower image quality.

These plans include developing a way to produce Mo-99 and other radioisotopes not with a nuclear reactor, but rather with newly designed compact systems. Currently these strategies are in the planning stages, including at Kennewick, Washington-based Advanced Medical Isotope Corp. Should such plans work out, it may be possible to produce a wider variety of radioisotopes in addition to Mo-99, each with its own specific medical application.One such radioisotope worth producing in greater amounts within the United States is actinium-225, whose daughter bismuth-213 is used for advanced research in therapy of leukemia and other cancers and also holds promise for treating human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Additionally useful in cancer diagnosis and staging is carbon-11, which has been employed as a radiotracer in PET scans to study both normal and abnormal brain functions related to various drug addictions. It is also used to evaluate diseases such as Alzheimer’s. This past February, a research paper in the journal Archives of Neurology reported the use of carbon-11 PET scans to detect in vivo fibrillar beta amyloid in older adults.Further tools in the radioisotope toolbox include cobalt-57, which is used for gamma camera calibration, as a radiotracer in research, and as a source for X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy; and copper-64, which has been employed in PET scanning, planar imaging and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging, as well as dosimetry studies, and cerebral and myocardial blood flow. It is also used in stem cell research and cancer treatments.Fluorine-18 is the primary PET imaging isotope and is used for cancer detection, heart imaging and brain imaging. Last year, in a clinical trial at Johns Hopkins University, a PET agent built around fluorine-18 readily and safely distinguished the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients from those of healthy volunteers. The study authors concluded in the June 2010 Journal of Nuclear Medicine that their agent could lead to better ways to distinguish Alzheimer’s from other types of dementia, track disease progression and develop new therapeutics to fight the memory-ravaging disease.Other useful examples include germanium-68, which is being used for the study of thrombosis and atherosclerosis, PET imaging, the detection of pancreatic cancer and attenuation correction. Indium-111 is used for infection imaging, cancer treatments and tracer studies, while iodine-123 is used in brain, thyroid, kidney and myocardial imaging, cerebral blood flow and neurological disease. Its close relative, iodine-124, meanwhile, is a radiotracer used in PET imaging and to create images of the human thyroid. Its other treatment uses include apoptosis, cancer biotherapy, glioma, heart disease, mediastinal micrometastases and thyroid cancer.Iodine-131 is useful in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disease, including cancer, while strontium-82 and its daughter rubidium-82 are used as a myocardial imaging agent for the early detection of coronary artery disease, PET imaging and blood flow tracers. Finally, as mentioned earlier, thallium-201 is used in clinical cardiology, heart imaging, myocardial perfusion studies and cellular dosimetry. And this abbreviated list barely does justice to the variety of potentially useful isotopes.Read the 2017 article “FDA Clears Path for First Domestic Supply of Tc-99m Isotope.” Editor’s Note: Jim Katzaroff is chairman and CEO of Kennewick, Washington-based Advanced Medical Isotope Corp. (www.isotopeworld.com). The company is engaged in the production and distribution of medical isotopes. He believes it is a moral imperative to provide an adequate supply of life-saving medical isotopes on American soil.

He just liked taking his family on vacation. Some of the items on the table at the Palazzo Margherita. Bloomberg News photo by Colleen ClarkAfter falling in love with the jungle while filming “Apocalypse Now” in the Philippines, he decided to get a little piece of it closer to the United States. In the early 1980s, Coppola picked up a run-down lodge in the mountainous rain forest of newly independent Belize and outfitted it with four-wheel drives, good beds, and, perhaps apocryphally, the country’s first pizza oven and espresso machine to entertain his brood in style.“What I realized afterwards was that I was accidentally creating the infrastructure for a hotel,” he says over the phone from his Napa, Calif., home. The 20-room Blancaneaux Lodge opened in 1993.Four more properties followed – another on the beach in Belize, and the rest in the seemingly disparate locations of Argentina, Guatemala, and, of course, Italy. A fifth, based out of a French Quarter mansion in New Orleans, has been in development limbo for years. What unites them?“Just me and my family,” Coppola says. “They’re all things that we love, food that we find wonderful, places that are chosen not out of practicality or anything sensible, but just out of love.”For Coppola, family, travel, and work are inextricably linked. His earliest memories are of the cross-country road trips his father, a flutist and composer, would take the family on in the 1940s and ’50s.“My father had a habit of writing a song for every location we were in – a song for Amarillo and a song for the Ozarks – and we kids would have to sing a song for every location we were in,” Coppola recalls.He has created similar memories for his children.“My dad bought a 1913 Model T Ford, and we drove it from San Francisco to Bolinas, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge,” son Roman Coppola says over the phone from the set of “Mozart in the Jungle,” the show he created with cousin Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers. “It overheated and broke down, but it was the most wonderful adventure.”Coppola always brought his family along on shoots – his daughter Sofia’s earliest memories include living on a chocolate plantation during the filming of “Apocalypse Now” – and those adventures became family lore, filtering into his children’s future films and artistic sensibility. Consider Sofia’s classic meditation on Tokyo, “Lost in Translation,” and Roman’s coming-of- age “Moonrise Kingdom” (co-written with director Wes Anderson and starring Schwartzman).It’s here, squarely in this intersection of travel, family, and storytelling, that the Coppola family’s hotels sit.“Ultimately, a resort is a movie. The place is the setting – the ruins, the body of water – the city is the star, the staff is the cast,” Coppola says.His hotels all manage to feel at once intimate and sublime, a backdrop for a grand adventure meticulously curated as only a filmmaker can. But because they double as family homes, there’s something effortless and familiar, from the staffing to the subtle design choices. It’s a relaxed sort of luxury – the best kind.“They’re all things that we love, places chosen not out of practicality or anything sensible.” Francis Ford Coppola speaks at a ceremony posthumously honoring audio pioneer Ray Dolby with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in Hollywood, California, on Jan. 22, 2015. Mark Ralston/AFPCoppola recently came to New York for what was supposed to be a speech for travel journalists. But in typical fashion, he transformed it into a dinner party, arriving at the homey Il Buco restaurant with a multigenerational brood, including his 98-year-old Uncle Kiki (an opera composer), his aunt (a former ballerina), and a flurry of nieces. Sofia popped in for a hug when she dropped off her mom. And Francis invited everyone to stay for dinner while he spun family yarns with Uncle Kiki.They sat by candlelight, a two-man stand-up routine, trading well-worn tales of Francis’ first trip to Bernalda. At the age of 20, he showed up in town and introduced himself as a Coppola. He was immediately surrounded by cousins (and cousins of cousins), hugged, and fed.“I was trying to figure out where the hell am I going to sleep tonight – there were no hotels,” he said.Eventually they sent him home with his newlywed cousins. He shared a bed with the groom, while the bride slept “who knows where, in the barn.” And he never forgot the warmth of the reception. A farmer makes mozzarella with milk from the massería’s prized cows. Bloomberg News photo by Colleen ClarkYou go to Tuscany and Amalfi for those big beautiful postcard views, but Bernalda is for escaping the tourist circuit. What you may trade in brain-melting beauty, you gain in chance encounters at the local gelatería, the cinematic purr of everyday life. Fifteen minutes away there’s a beach, where fishermen pull up with their boats and grill up the day’s catch fresh, right on the sand.It’s easy to settle in, which is the point.Coppola’s purchase of the Palazzo in 2004 grew out of his family connections there – “The five thousand million cousins in Bernalda felt that I should own it,” he jokes – and became a family project with designer Jacques Grange, opening as a nine-suite hotel in 2012. It’s his Godfather property, a family business, spanning generations.“We approach each hotel as though it’s a family home, so it’s our custom to let each kid have input as to how they want their space to be.”The result? Blushing pink walls and hand-painted frescoes in Sofia’s room echo a summer palace. Geometric floors and a vintage Grand Prix poster (found by Sofia) lend Roman’s suite a masculine deco flavor. And Tunisian tiles in the patriarch’s suite pay homage to Francis’s mother.“My wife and children are such creative people, and their particular points of view really come through. So I love to stay in Sofia’s room. And Sofia loves to stay in Roman’s room to experience more of his personality,” Coppola says.The Palazzo also traces family history further back.“My grandfather Agostino was known in Bernalda as ‘Salta Balcone,’ or ‘Jumps Balcony,’ because he was always trying to get into houses to have affairs with the maids,” Coppola says, noting that he thinks the Palazzo was the site of an affair with one such woman called Palmetta. Now the servants’ quarters have been dubbed the Palmetta room, and Agostino’s portrait hangs there above his childhood bed.The Coppola family has already started contributing to the Palazzo’s story arc – Sofia celebrated her wedding in the garden in 2011, and Roman’s son ate his first birthday cake in the courtyard. And that familial warmth infused every aspect of my four-day stay there, from a lazy breakfast beneath Sofia’s lemon tree to rainy-day movies in the salon to a rustic alfresco lunch that the Palazzo arranges at a nearby farm (pizza in the grass with the workers, generations of whom had toiled here).Now Francis has turned his eye on a new family project.“We have a beautiful property in New Orleans that I have always wanted to make into an inn for artists, a sort of French- style creative auberge,” he says. “We have a building, but we don’t have the right to create a hotel. But in a city like New Orleans, you never know what can happen.”And after that?“A hotel in Corsica, a resort in Sardinia, the Colombe d’Or in the south of France. I love Dublin, I love Ireland, I love everywhere. I love this magnificent, diverse earth that we have, where you can’t look out in any direction and not see beauty,” he says.“It’s part of this incredible experience of life.”© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments read more
Authorities in the north on Friday said that the extradition of Turkish Cypriots to other countries was out of the question.Spokesman of the Turkish Cypriot leader, Baris Burcu, tried to alleviate concerns following media reports on Turkish investigations and detentions targeting Turkish Cypriot academics and journalists, some of whom in any case, possess Cyprus, and thus, EU passports.In a written statement on Friday, Burcu said that ‘TRNC citizens’ could not be extradited to other countries nor could court decisions issued in other countries executed in the north.Turkish Cypriot leader, Mustafa Akinci, according to Burcu, has always followed the rule of law on freedom of the press and freedom of expression. He added that there should be no doubt about that.Citing the head of the ‘Supreme Court’, Narin Sefik, Burcu said that the ‘extradition’ of ‘citizens’ to other countries for cases pending against them or due to the outcome of a case, “is out of the question.”The announcement comes after fears expressed by academics and journalists in the north following two lawsuits against Afrika newspaper and two of its journalists, editor Sener Levent and Ali Osman by the Ankara chief public prosecutor’s office.You May LikeHonest To Paws25 Canine Facts That Even The Biggest Dog Lovers Don’t KnowHonest To PawsUndogeneralpath13 Rules You Need to Know Before Buying Your HomegeneralpathUndoBusiness FlightsFlying Business Is Cheaper Than You Might ThinkBusiness FlightsUndo Cyprus’ Dothraki warriorUndoFamagusta municipality says Varosha entry goes against UN regulationsUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoby Taboolaby Taboola read more

ASMC can run political ads with unlimited individual and corporate contributions, 2018 , Bernstein said he has never managed to convince Kudlow that that tax cuts that he has zealously championed have failed to deliver the promised growth, cities instituted permanent curfews for workers and slaves At that time and into the 1800s most of those curfews were aimed at controlling laborers When child-labor laws came along the reasoning got swapped: adults were now working in factories (often at night making curfews unappealing to the bosses) and children were at home without supervision getting into trouble Curfews as a tactic to suppress crime became linked with age restrictions on movement By the middle of the 20th century many cities had permanent youth curfews The US Department of Justice bulletin on curfews cites 1975’s Bykofsky v Borough of Middletown as the first federal court test of the constitutionality of those curfews; the court decided that the curfew in question was allowed as any infringing on parents’ rights to make decisions for their children was outweighed by Middletown’s interest in protecting them In general the DOJ sums up a constitutionally acceptable juvenile curfew must come with a demonstrated reason and be precisely written in a way that addresses that reason For example a city could demonstrate that juvenile crime during certain hours is a problem and that the curfew applies to those hours A rise in crime often coincides with a rise in permanent juvenile curfews and vice versa Even though many dispute the effectiveness of juvenile curfews they’re a frequent tactic when a city is looking for solutions “In general in the early ’90s when violence was such a hot topic curfews were something many cities were trying” says Ruefle “I havent had a call about this in a decade Its faded away because crime has faded away” Still many cities continue to keep permanent juvenile curfews on the books whether or not they’re enforced Baltimore is included in that group In fact last August Baltimore made news by tightening its policy That means that even after next week Baltimore’s will be a tale of two curfews: one that ends when the emergency does and one that will keep on going Write to Lily Rothman at lilyrothman@timecom the Straits Times says.
