New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday said conviction ratio in criminal cases in the country is “very pitiful” and age-old police techniques such as giving a suspect the third degree and phone tapping will not yield the desired results in curbing crimes or getting convictions. Addressing the top brass of police organisations during the 49th Raising Day event of the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) here, the home minister said usage of forensic evidence is the need of the hour for police investigators to clinch convictions against criminals.

It cannot go like this in these times. This needs to be corrected and this can only be corrected when a probe is supported by forensic evidence.” Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “If a charge sheet is supported by forensic evidence, then there are not many options before the judge and the defence lawyer.

EDMONTON – A judge in Edmonton has declared a career criminal whose violent attacks go back decades a dangerous offender.Lance Blanchard, 60, was in court Friday to hear the decision by Justice Eric Macklin.“I have reached the conclusion that Mr. Blanchard is a dangerous offender and poses a high risk for both violent and sexual recidivism,” Macklin said in court. “I am satisfied that Mr. Blanchard constitutes a threat to the life, safety and physical well-being of other persons in the community.“He has shown a pattern of repetitive behaviour.”With the designation, Blanchard will spend an indefinite time in prison and won’t be eligible for parole unless he gets treatment that shows he can safely be managed in the community.Blanchard was convicted in 2016 of kidnapping and sexually assaulting an Indigenous woman who was jailed to ensure her testimony. The woman was also made to ride on at least one occasion in the same van taking her accuser to the courthouse.Tom Engel, Blanchard’s lawyer, said he’s not surprised by the dangerous offender designation.“It appeared that the die was cast a long time ago for him to be DO’d,” he said outside court. “Speaking for Mr. Blanchard, who obviously maintains that he was innocent of the charges that he was found guilty on, he has waited a long time to file an appeal on those convictions.“He couldn’t do so until this matter was complete.”Despite the possibility of an appeal in the 2016 case, the prosecutors were content with the dangerous offender status for Blanchard.“This is the ruling that was sought by the Crown, this is the ruling that protects society from the future risk of Mr. Blanchard,” Crown prosecutor Chantelle Washenfelder said.“It’s been a long, complicated prosecution but the road for the prosecution has been much, much shorter than that of the victims … who have suffered for over 40 years carrying the scars from the actions of Mr. Blanchard.”His convictions include no less than 10 violent offences, including at least two sexual assaults, that date back to the 1970s.One of Blanchard’s early victims was permitted to give a last-minute victim impact statement Friday before the judge delivered his decision.The man, who was 10 when he was beaten and sexually assaulted in a hotel after he went to get a treat from the lobby, testified that his life changed dramatically after the attack in 1978.“This was supposed to be a happy time,” he said in court.The man, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban, said Blanchard cornered him in the elevator and took him to the top floor, where he forced him out of the elevator and sexually assaulted him.“I was terrified and crying uncontrollably,” he recalled.Blanchard then forced him to remove his clothes and began beating him repeatedly.“The beating seemed to go on forever,” said the man, who was visibly upset. “When he stopped, I laid slumped over barely conscious. I remember seeing the chocolate bar that I was so excited about, laying in front of me in a pool of my blood.”After Blanchard left, he said he managed to get back to the room and could only tell his dad “that it was a big man.”He said he spent a couple weeks in the hospital recovering from his injuries, but noted they were nothing compared to the mental and emotional injuries.“My life and the lives of those close to me have been greatly impacted by Blanchard,” he said. “I have followed the updates over the years, and have been deeply saddened to learn of other victims.“It’s too late to change my story, but I feel that I have a responsibility to speak out and try to prevent this from happening to anyone else.”The Indigenous woman wasn’t able to testify in the dangerous offender hearing for Blanchard because she had died in an unrelated accidental shooting.
BLUE RIVER, B.C. – A wildlife tour company in Blue River, B.C., is facing charges for allegedly putting food out to attract bears.Chris Doyle, deputy chief of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service, said in a conference call Thursday that the service began its investigation last August after receiving a complaint.Doyle said charges were sworn in May against Blue River Safari, also known as River Safari, which offers jet boat and jeep tours for bear and wildlife viewing.He said the charges against the company include feeding dangerous wildlife and placing attractants for dangerous wildlife under the B.C. Wildlife Act.The allegations have not been proven in court and the company could not immediately be reached for comment.Doyle said a representative for Blue River Safari is expected to appear in a Clearwater court on Sept. 25.Blue River is near Wells Grey Provincial Park, about 80 kilometres from the Alberta boundary.Doyle said it’s much more common for people to unintentionally leave out attractants for bears than to feed them on purpose, but it can have the same effect of putting both human safety and the lives of bears in danger.

OSU senior second baseman L Grant Davis (50) hits the ball during a game against Morehead State at Bill Davis Stadium on April 13. OSU won 7-3. Credit: Muyao Shen | Asst. Photo EditorDown 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning to Morehead State, OSU co-captain Nick Sergakis stepped into the batter’s box, knowing he had to make up for mistake he committed in the top of the fifth inning.With two outs and a man on third, the normally sturdy third baseman tracked a hard-hit ground ball down the third base line, pushing him to the beginning of left-field grass. His arm failed him, one-hopping the throw to first baseman Troy Kuhn. The senior couldn’t handle it, which scored Eagles junior right fielder Will Schneider from third. Focused and dialed in, the senior from Columbus planted his feet in the box, pointed his bat to the outfield and connected on the very first pitch he saw in his next at-bat, sending his sixth home run of the season over the trees in deep left field, pushing the Buckeyes ahead 4-3 on the two-run blast.“To be honest with you, I didn’t know what I was going to see,” Sergakis said. “They haven’t really pitched to me at all lately. I was looking for a fastball up, and that’s what I got. I just put a swing on it, and once I hit it, I knew it and it put us ahead by one.” OSU senior third baseman Nick Sergakis (21) steps in the box before hitting a go-ahead home run during a game against Morehead State at Bill Davis Stadium on April 13. OSU won 7-3.Credit: Giustino Bovenzi | Lantern reporterThe momentum provided by Sergakis in the seventh charged the Buckeyes into the eight, where they tacked on three more runs on three doubles, sealing the 7-3 win for the Scarlet and Gray.“That’s just how quickly the game of baseball can change,” Sergakis said. “You could put your team down by one, then the next inning put them up by one. That’s how it is, and that’s why you can never hang your head over an error or a strikeout or anything like that.” Earlier in the game, the Buckeyes overcame a slow start and a 2-0 hole thanks to junior center fielder Troy Montgomery. The Fortville, Indiana, native clubbed his sixth home run of the season off the scoreboard in right-center field, scoring sophomore outfielder Tre’ Gantt.OSU coach Greg Beals said Montgomery’s home run really calmed his team’s nerves and allowed it to get settled in.“Montgomery’s home run allowed everybody to be like, ‘OK we’re back into a tie ballgame, we’re not in the hole,’” Beals said. “And then Sergakis’s one was kind of the back-breaker for them, I believe, for him to get that big home run there. Both of them, really big time at-bats.”OSU senior pitcher Daulton Mosbarger was effective in his first start of his career. In the no-decision, the Bellefontaine, Ohio, product lasted 4.1 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits, two walks and one strikeout.Redshirt sophomore pitcher Kyle Michalik (1-0) picked up his first career victory for his 3.2 innings of scoreless relief, allowing just two hits. The Brunswick, Ohio, native said it was great to pick up his first career win because his mother was in attendance to see it unfold.“It’s a really good feeling, to finally get your first career win here,” Michalik said. “I’ve just been working real hard at everything, and I’m kind of at a loss of words to be honest with you. First win just feels really good.”OSU is scheduled to return to action with a three-game Big Ten series against Rutgers. Junior lefty Tanner Tully is slated to take the mound in Game 1 for OSU, which is set to start at 6:35 p.m. on Friday.
A little boy looks at Frankie the crocodile at Chester Zoo. Library imageCredit:SWNS Chester Zoo fraudsters (from left) Ashad Ali, Mohammad Arif, Akhtar Ali and Mohammad AsifCredit:SWNS Initially all four denied any involvement until three changed their pleas. Akhtar Ali denied the charges, but was convicted by a jury:Ashad Ali, of Luton, Bedfordshire, admitted being in possession of £1,260,368.05 of criminal property and transferring it by means of bank transfer.Mohammad Asif, 35, of Nelson, Lancashire, admitted being in possession of £5,000 criminal property.Mohammad Arif, 36, of Nelson, Lancashire, also admitted the same charge, to a value of £15,000.Akhtar Ali, 47, of Nelson, Lancashire, was convicted after a trial of being in possession of £50,000 of criminal property.Despite the scale of the fraud, the court heard the four men were not the organisers of the scam and did not know how large it would be.Judge Martin Picton told Ali: “It would not be right, it seems to me, to address it in a way that lays the £1.26million fraud at your door.” Chester Zoo was tricked into paying a £1.26million invoice into the bank account of a gang of fraudsters who claimed to have built them a new “safari experience”, a court heard.The attraction fell victim to a scam after receiving an email that purported to be from a contractor informing them their bank details had changed.But the letter was a forgery and the new account related to a closed tapas restaurant owned by 40-year-old Ashad Ali.Within hours of the invoice being paid, the money had been distributed to 28 different bank accounts, Bristol Crown Court heard.Ali pleaded guilty to possessing £1.26million of criminal property and has been given a suspended prison sentence along with three co-defendants.The court heard how construction company Laing O’Rourke was contracted to carry out £17million worth of work on a new “safari experience” at Chester Zoo in 2013.Shortly before a £1.25 million invoice was due to be issued, the zoo received an email purporting to be from the construction company’s finance team, asking for a change in the bank account for invoicing.Despite being on Laing O’Rourke headed paper, the signatures were forged and some of the names were made up, the court heard. On November 27, 2013, Chester Zoo transferred £1,260,368.05 into the account details specified in the bogus document.Within 90 minutes, the money – described by a judge as “a breathtaking sum” – was being distributed between 28 different bank accounts.The alarm was raised the next day when it was realised the money had not arrived in Laing O’Rourke’s bank account.Some £50,000 was paid into an account in the name of Ali Motors, a company previously run by co-defendant Akhtar Ali.A further £15,000 was sent from the Ali Motors account into that of Mohammad Arif, the owner of Heaton Chapel Motors. Another £5,000 was paid to a fictional Ali Hassan – real name Mohammed Asif. The new account details listed belonged to the Indian Summer Tapas restaurant in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, which had closed months earlier in June 2013.It was owned by Ali, who was paying £20 per month for a premium bank account which would allow him to transfer sums of £20,000 at a time. As a result, the men were all given suspended sentence:Ashad Ali was given an 18 month sentence, suspended for 18 months, and given unpaid work.Akhtar Ali was given a six month sentence, suspended for 12 months, and given unpaid work.Asif and Arif were both given a community order and 150 hours unpaid work.Defending Ashad Ali, Ross Talbott said: “These are the very foolish actions of a man of previous good character who found himself in a desperate financial situation.”Mr Ali is honest about his involvement and his reasons for becoming involved.”It is clear he is described in report as intelligent but in difficult position. This will be the first and only time that Ashad Ali finds himself before the courts.”He has a strong work record. He is currently employed by easyJet with less hours than he was previously.”Chester Zoo is home to 20,000 animals and attracted nearly 1.9 million visitors last year, a record in its 85-year history.

The quality of this service offering is continuously improved by ongoing research and development into mechanisation, automation and remote drilling services.”
A MAN THAT HAD been convicted in relation to the deaths of eight refugees that were on their way to Ireland has been freed from prison after court documents went missing.Het Laatste Nieuws, a Dutch newspaper based in Brussels reports that the man had previously been convicted for the death of the eight refugees, including three Turkish children, who died on board a ship that was sailing from Zeebruge to Ireland in 2001.Ten yearsThe 33-year-old from Serbia never turned up for his sentencing but despite his absence was sentenced to ten years for the crime. The case resurfaced in 2012, when investigators finally managed to track down the man down.The Belgian Court of Cassation, the court of last resort in Belgium, suspended the earlier verdict of ten years in prison because some documents turned out to be missing from his files.ReleaseThe man was released and a new trial will take place before the Court of Appeal in Antwerp.Migrants Rights Centre Ireland Director Siobhán O’Donoghue told TheJournal.ie that this case illustrated the desperate measures people are forced to take in order to support themselves and their families.She added: Laws against sex buyers need to be introduced now, says Immigrant Council>Column: Human trafficking and forced prostitution is continuing in Ireland> If we are serious about reducing human smuggling, we need to face up to the need for legal and safe channels of migration; right now, Europe’s hostile immigration policies are playing into the hands of criminals willing to exploit the desperation of vulnerable people.As we have seen with the recent deaths in Lampedusa and in Niger, people are still being forced to take these desperate measures. Is this what we want from Europe?
The Apple keynote during WWDC started at midday yesterday EST, and part of the presentation introduced iOS 5 and a whole bunch of new features Apple device owners can look forward to. Less than 24 hours later and the beta version of iOS 5 has already been jailbroken.The jailbreak proof comes via MuscleNerd on Twitter who posted two images of an iPod touch 4G running a jailbroken version of the new iOS. The first shows the Cydia store installed, the second shows root access has been gained.MuscleNerd forms part of the iPhone Dev Team who are well-known for performing jailbreaks on Apple’s iOS versions. This latest jailbreak required the use of Geohot’s Limera1n exploit and unfortunately is tethered, meaning each reboot of your device requires connection to a PC in order to retain the jailbroken state.The good news is that this method will work on the final version of iOS, so you can jailbreak the day iOS 5 is released this Fall.via Ultrasn0wMatthew’s OpinionThat was a seriously fast jailbreak, but not the perfect solution as those who do jailbreak want an untethered solution and remove the PC link completely. I am sure that is in the pipeline and could well arrive before the masses get iOS 5.I do have to wonder what Apple really thinks about jailbreaking. On the one hand I’m sure they’d love to stop it completely, but on the other the percentage of device owners doing it is so small it is probably something they can afford to ignore. Even so, Apple’s iOS team will continue to close the holes used to jailbreak on every release in the hope it will stop them from happening. I doubt that will ever be the case, though.
Vancouver-based Riverview Bancorp Inc., parent of Riverview Community Bank, ended its quarter and its fiscal year in positive earnings territory, showing continuing reductions in troubled loans and a steady decline in bank-owned real estate.Riverview reported earnings of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for its fourth fiscal quarter ending March 31. That was a healthy improvement over the previous quarter’s earnings of $1 million, and a remarkable turnaround from its net loss of $16 million in last fiscal year’s fourth quarter.Riverview reduced its portfolio of non-performing loans by $3.5 million, leaving it with $21.1 million in troubled loans. It shrank its bank-owned real estate by almost 25 percent, to $15.6 million.“We’ve worked extremely hard over multiple quarters,” said Kim Capeloto, Riverview’s executive vice president for marketing and operations. “The numbers are moving in the right direction because of the immense hard work of our staff.”For all of fiscal year 2013, which ended March 31, Riverview earned $2.6 million. In the previous fiscal year, the bank had lost $31.7 million as it wrote off losses for troubled loans that it had kept on its books long after other banks had taken losses.
Share 00:00 /01:08 – / 3Woodlands Express is a commuter bus service that’s operated by The Woodlands Township, with the help of a federal transit grant. About 2,700 riders a day use the service to get from The Woodlands to downtown Houston. It also stops in the Med Center and Greenway Plaza. But when the buses head back to Montgomery County, they’re empty. To fill those seats, The Woodlands Township Board of Directors has approved a new reverse-commuting program. The Woodlands Director of Community Relations Nick Wolda says the buses will now start carrying people from Houston to the suburbs.“There’s really no risk on our part as far as the financial risk because these are buses already coming back,” says Wolda. But once you get riders to The Woodlands, how do you get them to the places where they work? Wolda says they plan to discuss that with some of the area’s major employers. “Those are things we’ll be working through over the next few weeks,” adds Wolda. “And we plan to launch this service once we develop and work out a lot of these details.” Woodlands Express is planning to start the reverse commuting program after the first of the year. The fare for a round-trip is currently $13. Listen X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:
In what some consider a progressive move towards racial equity for Black students in the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS), Councilmember David Grosso (I-At-large) has introduced a bill to limit and, in some cases, end out-of-school suspensions and expulsions.The Student Fair Access to School Act of 2017, according to the bill, would work to “disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline, increase school safety, and put every child in the best position to succeed.”D.C. Councilmember David Grosso introduced a bill that would stop out-of-school suspension practices for D.C. Public Schools. (Courtesy Photo)The bill limits out-of-school suspension for students in kindergarten through eighth grade for all but the most harmful offenses, which include physical and emotional harm to other students. For high school students there would be a ban on suspensions for minor incidents like disobedience or uniform violations.“Despite the progress made over the past years, Black students in D.C. are 7 times more likely to be suspended than White students – that should outrage us all,” Grosso wrote in his introductory statement. “When those students are suspended, they are more likely to fail academically, to drop out, and to end up involved in the criminal justice system. This bill would require schools – both DCPS and charters – to have discipline policies that avoid exclusion, address bias, and seek the root causes of misbehavior.”For former DCPS students like Anthony Mack, who said he went through a stint of fighting and being disobedient in school, Grosso’s desire to return to a student-friendly and student-centered system of discipline is necessary. “I spent a good amount of time in DCPS on suspension while in junior high, but there was a program called ‘In-School Suspension’ where I still had to show up at school,” Mack, a Ward 6 resident who attended Francis Jr. High School, told the AFRO. “I had a responsibility from which I was not absolved just because I wanted to be disobedient in class. In-school saved me from being on the street, getting into real trouble, and ensured that I turned in every single assignment that was required while I was being punished.”Mack said that since so many young Washingtonians face real-life challenges, including homelessness, abuse, hunger and depression, the Student Fair Access to School Act could spell the difference between matriculation and dropping out.There are currently five disciplinary tiers that determine whether a student receives an on‐site or off‐site suspension, according to the DCPS Student Discipline Policy.Jeff Canady, a D.C. education reformer with We Act Radio concurred, said Grosso’s efforts move in the right direction, but should also work to determine how frustrations within the educational environment sometime promote misconduct, which can lead to suspension. “Suspensions and expulsions are signs the ecosystem in a school environment is unbalanced. School administrators should not be handed impossible reforms and then held accountable for implementing them; they should have wide latitude to make good judgments on what best suits the needs of the student and the school environment,” Canady told the AFRO. “In-school suspension is one of many techniques used to encourage students to modify behavior and become successful academically. The ultimate goal is to create a healthy environment for children and school staff.”Grosso said he began researching other school districts and convened several working groups with education researchers, lawyers, and parents connected with charter, local education agencies, and public schools to draft the language. Other mandates of the legislation include: a ban on suspensions for absence/tardy instances, uniform violations, and purely behavioral incidents (i.e. willful defiance, etc.), as well as incidents that transpire off-campus. Student suspensions would be limited to 10 days or fewer consecutively, or fewer than 20 days cumulatively. Finally, schools must continue the education for students while they are suspended and have a reintegration plan for students to return successfully to school.
© 2014 Phys.org Close-ups of an experiment conducted by John Bush and his student Daniel Harris, in which a bouncing droplet of fluid was propelled across a fluid bath by waves it generated. Credit: Dan Harris (Phys.org) —It was an interesting week for physics research, as a team at MIT began taking a second look at pilot-wave theory—they’re wondering if, when looked at a certain way , fluid mechanics might suggest an alternative to quantum orthodoxy—they’re taking a new approach to define whether some types of matter are particles, or waves, or whether it’s about particles being carried along by waves. Meanwhile, another team at Chalmers University of Technology announced that the sound of an atom has been captured. By using sound to communicate with an artificial atom, they are looking to find ways to allow sound to take on the role of light in certain quantum physics situations to demonstrate certain phenomena. And at Princeton University, researchers have begun crystallizing light to create “solid” light that could compute previously unsolvable problems—locking photons together, they suggest, might also help answer some of the fundamental questions physicists still have regarding matter.Space scientists have been busy as well. One team built a model that simulates the birth of our solar system revealing a planetary mystery—are the planets that exist now part of a normal natural process or was there one or more rare events that led to their formation? More research will have to be done to find better evidence. Also, researchers working with Hubble found a supernova companion star after two decades of searching.In more practical news, researchers at the University of Glasgow reported that they had found a Hydrogen production breakthrough that could herald cheap green energy—they claim their process is 30 times faster than conventional techniques. Another team at UW-Madison claimed to have developed a tabletop motor using an entirely new driving principle based on an electric, rather than magnetic, field.There were also some surprises last week as well: Researchers at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine announced a potential breakthrough in treating liver cancer—they found that a hormone that is involved in mammalian milk production might also help prevent liver cancer. And another team in England has created a new digital map that reveals some stunning, hidden archaeology of Stonehenge. It’s actually kind of eerie looking at it.And finally, if you’ve been wondering if you, or perhaps some of those around you, are inherently evil, a team of psychologists suggests that evil is not so banal, after all. They’re looking into what is known as the “banality of evil,” where ordinary people go along with atrocities, such as the holocaust, as mindless puppets. They think such instances are not banal at all and instead occur because those that go along when ordered to do so, do it out of a feeling of identification—this would mean that people committing such acts have far more choice in the matter than most of us would like to believe.

Prostitutes are potentially at risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) due to increased numbers of partners and incidences of contact.Prostitution involves the exchange of sexual services for economic compensation.As sexual behaviour is an important determinant in transmitting HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), sex workers (SWs) and clients are often labelled as a “high risk group” in the context of HIV and STDs.Also read: Is prostitution taking over Ladysmith?Also read: Update: Prostitutes make a mess in Ladysmith (video included)Also read: Update: More prostitutes taking over Forbes Street?It has been documented that female sex workers in particular have an increased prevalence of untreated STDs and have been hypothesized to affect the health and HIV incidence of the general population.People involved in prostitution are a cause for concern from both public health and economic perspectives.Condoms are very effective at preventing infections, but the point to focus on is whether you actually used a condom to protect yourself and whether the condom was used correctly without it splitting or coming off. Condoms reduce the risk of most sexually transmitted diseases, although there are some infections that can be passed on through close physical contact, whether or not a condom was used.According to a local doctor, prostitutes are at a high risk of contracting STIs.There are government clinics where they can go and have checkups on a regular basis. To reiterate, condoms can go a long way towards preventing their partners from contracting a sexually transmitted infection.Click to receive news links via WhatsApp. Or for the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Volcano eruption in Alaska sparks aviation alert Wednesday, December 21, 2016 EUGENE, Ore. — The Alaska Volcano Observatory issued its highest alert level for aviation Tuesday, after a volcano erupted in the Aleutian Islands that reportedly sent ash thousands of feet into the air. The alert was downgraded hours later.The observatory says pilots reported the Bogoslof volcano on Bogoslof Island briefly erupted about 4 p.m. Alaska time.Pilots told the observatory that a volcanic ash cloud rose to 34,000 feet.The observatory said satellite data show a short-lived explosion that drifted to the south.In a report about 6 p.m., it said that the steam and ash cloud had mostly dissipated, and that it didn’t pose air-quality problems for local communities.Three hours after that, the observatory said that the alert level had been downgraded a notch because activity had apparently subsided.The volcano is located in the Bering Sea about 850 miles southwest of Anchorage.Many flights between North America and Asia head over Alaska area, but are not affected at this time. << Previous PostNext Post >> Tags: Alaska, USA & Canada Posted by Share The Canadian Press
