A report released yesterday reveals that the two-pilot crew made a maneuver without having full and clear view of the runway in Grand Bahama and that caused a 3-second mid-air explosion which led to the deaths of all on board. The Learjet the men were piloting with Dr. Munroe, his wife Ruth, a young family of three, a bi-lingual American minister, and his brother-in-law and Senior Vice President of Bahamas Faith Ministries: Dr. Richard Pinder on board was driven right into a crane on the dark stormy afternoon. The final report issued by the Bahamas Civil Aviation Authority said: The right outboard wing, right landing gear and right wing fuel tank separated from the aircraft on impact. This resulted in the aircraft travelling out of control, some 1,578 feet (526 yards), before crashing inverted into a pile of garbage and other debris in the City Services Garbage and Metal Recycling Plant adjacent to the Grand Bahama Shipyard. Both crew members and seven passengers were fatally injured. No persons on the ground were injured.” The report comes three and a half months after the crash. The Aircraft Accident Investigation and Prevention Unit or AAIPU has determined that the probable cause of this accident was, and I quote: The poor decision making of the crew in initiating and continuing a descent in IMC below the authorized altitude, without visual contact with the runway environment.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, May 9, 2017 – Nassau – An American man who says he was attacked by a group of people during a concert at Bahamas Junkanoo Carnival is alleging that he was “targeted and beat up” because he is gay and he plans to file a law suit.Adrian Brown, 24, who was born in Jamaica but lives in the United States, said he wants those involved to be charged with a hate crime.    Brown vows to pursue the case when he returns to the US and also plans on suing for medical bills, pain and suffering.Adrian BrownMr. Brown, a Navy officer who came to the Bahamas to participate in Junkanoo Carnival, said he was dancing at the concert late Friday into early Saturday when he felt someone throw water on him.“So I was at the concert and there was a stoop and I stepped up on the stoop and I was dancing,” Mr. Brown accounted.    “This was about 3am in the morning.   So I am dancing and having a good time. I had on a cut out shirt and fitted pants and I felt when some water hit me.   So I looked back and I got up off the stoop and I said to the guy, ‘Why did you hit me with the water,” and he said ‘Because you a batty man,’” Mr. Brown claimed.“Now I don’t think he knew that I am originally from Jamaica, so before anything could happen his girlfriend came up in my face and slapped me and then four people just jumped me,” he claimed.    “Two girls and two guys.   Then two Bahamian men jumped in and started helping me.   There was no conversation, they just started fighting me.   I am not a fighter, I came to the Bahamas to have fun, party and go back home.    I don’t know these people from Adam and they do not know me and they were hitting me and beating me in my head with a rock.    He just said ‘you are a batty man’ and they all jumped me.    After the incident the other two guys that helped me held one of the guys until the police came.”Mr. Brown said he went to the police station and was taken to Princess Margaret Hospital a short time later but because of the long wait he went to Doctors Hospital where he was treated and discharged.#magneticmedianews#gaymanbeatenatcarnival Related Items:#magneticmedianews, #magneticmedianews #gaymanbeatenatcarnivallast_img read more

San Diego County Supervisors approve vote center study

first_img Posted: July 9, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved a feasibility study on proposed voting centers.The 4-1 vote, with Supervisor Jim Desmond opposed, came after discussion over how much voting centers would cost, security, and possible disenfranchisement and voter fraud.Under the vote center system, the county’s registered voters would receive a mail ballot and could then drop it off or mail it to a vote center or cast a new ballot at the vote center itself. The system would eliminate the need for provisional ballots.The feasibility study will review pilot vote center locations for the 2020 election cycle, along with the costs and benefits; countywide deployment of the vote center model for the 2022 election cycle; an outreach and education campaign for 2020; and identify any state legislative changes that may be needed.The county will also consider an independent audit of the voter rolls, as requested by Supervisor Kristin Gaspar.Supervisor Nathan Fletcher made the proposal to study whether vote centers are a good idea.In a statement released after the board’s vote, he said: “Our democracy is strongest when the most voters participate in our elections. I believe we should do everything possible to make it easier for people to access the ballot. Today, the Board of Supervisors took an important step by exploring the vote center model, making it easier for people to vote. I appreciate their support and look forward to working with county staff and the community in the months ahead.”Desmond said while the county should look for more ways to expand voting, he wasn’t convinced that “we really need voting centers, when we have 1,600 polling stations.”Desmond also said that voter centers would be located in more densely populated areas, and possibly exclude those in more rural communities, such as farmers or ranchers.The board will decide whether to move forward with the vote center proposal after the study is completed in 120 days.

More screen less body in the revamped Acer Swift 7

first_imgThe super-slim Swift 7 gets slimmer bezels for more screen and less bulk.  Sarah Tew/CNET Acer’s ambitious Swift 7 laptop was one of my favorite laptops of 2018. Its main selling point was an amazingly thin body housing a 14-inch screen. But the world’s-thinnest-laptop Swift 7 was more than a one-trick pony: It was actually a very usable everyday laptop, with an excellent touchscreen, good touchpad, 180-degree hinge and fanless cooling. Exactly one year later, Acer is back with a new version of the Swift 7 for CES. The 2019 model is the Swift 7 SF714-52T, if you’re keeping track (last year’s was the SF714-51T). What’s different this time around? A few small tweaks — not that there’s much room to change a lot in a wafer-thin laptop. 85 Photos Share your voice 1 See it Acer’s Swift 7, Chromebook 315 break new ground at both… Comment The screen bezels have been reduced to under 3mm, making the laptop’s footprint smaller and allowing for a screen-to-body ratio of 92 percent. The 1.9-pound (0.86 kg) laptop does gain just a hair of thickness in the process, going from 8.98mm thick to 9.95mm. The processor gets an upgrade as well, going from a seventh-gen CPU to the eighth-gen Intel Core i7-8500Y, similar to what you’d find in a new MacBook Air.

Mysterious UFO lights appear in China conspiracy theorists speculate arrival of aliens

first_imgBannedbook.org/ET Data BasePopular conspiracy theorist and self-proclaimed alien researcher Scott C Waring, on his website ET Data Base, has now shared a creepy video that shows some mysterious UFO lights in the skies of China. The story about this creepy sky sighting was initially shared on the internet by a Chinese website named ‘Bannedbook.org’, but it gained popularity only after it was shared by Scott C Waring.In the website post, Scott C Waring revealed that several bright lights, possibly multiple UFOs, hovered in the skies of Beijing in night skies. The self-proclaimed alien researcher also made it clear that the UFOs not only appeared in the skies of Beijing but also in other regions of the country.”The lights caught the attention of most of Beijing, but it was seen by people that were 100 km away! That means the UFOs went to many locations, not just over Beijing. The light is lumpy and contained. That means its not a spotlight from the ground. A spotlight would spread the light evenly in all areas and cannot make lumps like this in the clouds. The lights suddenly appear as a group of spots, and then spreads into a plurality of spots, and moves quickly, sometimes ring-shaped, and sometimes resembles a pattern, and sometimes becomes another irregular pattern,” wrote Waring on his website.As the video uploaded by Waring went viral on the internet, many people have started arguing that this UFO sighting is authentic proof of alien existence. These alien buffs believe that extraterrestrials from deep space used to visit the earth to monitor human activities.Interestingly, the shape of the UFO that appeared in China seems very similar to the unidentified flying object that appeared a few months back in Baji California. The clip from Baji California was uploaded to YouTube by Tyler Glockner who runs the YouTube channel ‘Secureteam10’, and the conspiracy theorist revealed that eyewitnesses had live-streamed the UFO sighting on Instagram.However, experts have dismissed the alien connection associated with these sightings, and they claim that it might be spotlighted on the ground which is often misinterpreted as UFOs.last_img read more

Wipro sacking employees drags Infosys TCS but Mindtree Tech Mahindra gain

first_imgThe Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) building in Mumbai in this file photo on November 9, 2016IANSInfosys, TCS and Wipro ended with losses while mid-cap IT stocks Tech Mahindra and Mindtree closed with gains on Friday, on a day that buzzed with Wipro reportedly “hundreds of employees” citing bad performance.Infosys closed at Rs 924, Wipro at Rs 493 and TCS at Rs 2,311 while Tech Mahindra ended 1.45 percent higher at Rs 427 and Mindtree up 1.64 percent higher at Rs 450. The BSE Sensex closed 57 points lower at 29,365.It may be recalled that the three companies, among the top sponsors of H-1 B visas issued by the US government, are facing multiple headwinds and have slowed down hiring over the past few quarters, as reflected in their net addition numbers.For fiscal 2018, the overall visa applications fell 16 percent to 1,99,000 as compared to 2,36,000 for the previous fiscal, according to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services. The overall number of H-1 B visas is 85,000. Infosys, TCS and Wipro were among the top five sponsors of H-1B visa applications for fiscal 2017 amid the protectionist stance of the US, although the company-wise applications have fallen for all the three firms over the previous fiscal year, the steepest being for Infosys. The number of applications by Infosys are down by 7,884, or 23.68 percent, to 25,405 in 2017 from 33,289 last year, while the fall is 20.65 percent for TCS to 13,134 (16,553 in 2016).For Wipro, which reportedly sacked “hundreds” of employees this month, the decline is 13.06 percent to 10,607 from 12,201 in the previous year.Statistics put out by Myvisajobs.com showed that other companies in the top 10 sponsors include Capgemini, IBM, Accenture and Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS). US president Donald Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order “Buy American, Hire American” that aims to give preference to American goods and more jobs to Americans, directly impacting prospects of Indian IT software services companies like Infosys, Wipro, TCS and Tech Mahindra by the tightening of norms for issuing H-1B visas.The statistics also show an increase in the average salary by the respective Indian companies between 2016 and 2017, with the maximum being $81,705 for Infosys this year, though it is still lower than the salary paid by Capgemini and Accenture. The average salary for TCS is $76,099 this year while it is slightly lower at $72,720 for Wipro.  A U.S. embassy security guard (L) and an Indian policeman stand in front of the main gate of the embassy as the bulldozer (unseen) removes the security barriers, in New Delhi December 17, 2013.Reuters Filelast_img read more
