Net profit after tax from continuing operations rose to $206m from $188m a year ago, beating forecasts of around $156m. First-half container volumes at its ports around the world climbed seven per cent to the equivalent of 13.2m twenty-foot containers, as global trade levels increased. The company also enjoyed a lift from new ports opening in Saigon, Vietnam and Callao, Peru. DP World chief executive Mohammed Sharaf said new terminals and improvements in non-container revenue, along with continued cost management, helped to boost earnings.“As we move into the second half of the year, uncertainty remains over the sustainability of global trade volumes. However… we are on track to meet full year results in line with our expectations,” Sharaf added yesterday. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Investigative journalist badly injured in targeted attack

first_img RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is horrified by an attack on investigative journalist Leonids Jakobsons yesterday in Riga, in which he was badly beaten and sustained gunpowder burns from shots that were fired at him.“We firmly condemn this targeted attack on Jakobsons, which was clearly linked to the highly sensitive subjects of his investigative reporting, and we hope he recovers quickly,” Reporters Without Borders said. “With fellow journalist Grigorijs Nemcovs’ murder two years ago still unsolved, it is vital that the police do everything possible to quickly identify both the perpetrators and instigators of this murder attempt or else there is danger that a climate of intimidation and self-censorship will take hold.”Jakobsons was attacked in the stairwell of his apartment building as he returned home after work. After firing shots at him at close range, his two assailants beat him and kicked him. Badly wounded, he was rushed to Paula Stradiņa University Hospital where doctors said “his condition is stable and his life is no longer in danger.” Jakobsons sustained facial burns from gunpowder explosions, but no bullet wounds. His 9-year-old son, who was with him at the time, was not injured. The police said the two assailants quickly fled the scene and have not yet been identified.The founder and editor of the news website Kompromat (www.kompromat.lv), Jakobsons won the National Journalism Prize in 2009 in the “Defence of Media Freedom” category. Kompromat has been attracting more and more readers because of its coverage of corruption and organized crime.Last December, Jakobsons was detained for 48 hours and then released without being charged after posting an alleged exchange of emails between the Russian embassy and Riga mayor Nils Usakovs that suggested that the embassy secretly funded the mayor’s election campaign.After yesterday’s murder attempt, Usakovs quickly voiced support for Jakobsons and denied any involvement in the shooting. “I have an alibi :)”, he wrote in a Tweet.Neither the instigators nor perpetrators of the April 2010 murder of Nemcovs, the publisher of the regional newspaper Million, have so far been identified. But those who murdered Gundars Matiss, a reporter for the regional daily Kurzemes Vards in the western city of Liepaja in 2001, were tried and convicted. Matiss was beaten to death after covering trafficking in illegal alcohol. Latvia is ranked 50th out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, after falling 37 places in the past two years.(Picture: the stairwell of Jakobsons’ apartment building, after the attack.

Pensioner claims he was denied carer’s allowance

first_imgLinkedin by Bernie English [email protected] 83 year old man who nursed his wife for five years says he is owed almost €42,000 in unpaid Carer’s Allowance – but all he wants now is an apology for the trauma he has been through.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Colin Thickbroom, who is originally from Yorkshire but has been living in Shannon for 15 years, took care of his ailing wife, Joyce, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, single-handedly until a fall necessitated her to be hospitalised.“In all that time, I only got seven days respite care for her. I became mentally ill with being confined over such a long time without being able to talk to anyone for days at a time. Only my love for her after 54 years as man and wife kept me going,” Colin told the Limerick Post.The pensioner, who survived on his UK pension, had at times to find money to pay a carer while he went for his own doctor’s appointments or to take care of domestic business.“I was her carer 24/7”, he said. “I kept her out of hospital, freeing up a much-needed bed. I’ve never cost this state a penny”.But in all that time, Mr Thickbroom says, none of the agencies he dealt with informed him that in Ireland, he should be entitled to a Carer’s Allowance.“No one told me about it. There were no posters or information about it in doctor’s surgery, the health centre or anywhere that. I just didn’t know about it”.He found out he could claim the allowance when he read an article on the subject in the Limerick Post but by this stage, his wife had passed away.When he applied, he was informed that he was out of time to claim it retrospectively.He went as far as filing a complaint with the Office of the Ombudsman but without a positive result.“The trauma I went through all those years, and they still won’t acknowledge that I cared for Joyce to the point of damaging my own health. What I want from the HSE is a written apology”.A spokeswoman said that the HSE “does not discuss individual cases except in exceptional circumstances around public safety issues.“In relation to Mr Thickbroom, our public health nursing and primary care staff are reviewing the records and will engage with Mr Thickbroom. He will be informed of the process of making a formal complaint if he is dissatisfied.“He can be assured of our efforts to be supportive but we will do so in a private manner”.

Children’s Home reunion a family affair

They were “welfare children” shuttled between grandparents and aunts.“Our mother lived in the backwoods and she had no means to feed and clothe us,” Montgomery said. “She just couldn’t provide a home for us.”But her children found a home at the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home in Troy.

I was headed in the wrong direction.”But once at the children’s home, Davis was turned in another direction.“I had boys to play with and somebody that cared about me — where I was and what I was doing. We all had chores to do. I worked hard on the farm but it taught me life lessons. I was at the children’s home 10 years that got me headed where I needed to go.”A large gathering of “family members” attended the reunion and each had a story to tell. And the stories started in much the same way. Because of their family situations, the tellers were “displaced children,” living with relatives, often elderly grandparents, or being shuttled among relatives or those willing to “take them in” temporarily.But there were other stories,Sam Kitchens came to the children’s home as a 16-year-old along with his two younger brothers. His sister was too young to go to a foster home for a year. For a 16-year-old, the adjustment was not easy.“Being at the children’s home was not easy to accept,” Kitchens said. “But it kept me out of trouble and taught me responsibility.”Finding a friend who lived across from his cottage made life easier for Kitchens.“Gary and I hung out together,” Kitchens said. “Playing ball together, fishing and hunting together, being friends helped me make it.”David Headley’s dad worked in maintenance and he lived on campus and became friends with many of the children.“There was no stigma attached to the kids at the children’s home,” he said. “We walked to school together, all on one side. They were part of our school and our community. They just had a different kind of family life.”Family life was what Ronnie Carroll longed for and found at the Alabama Baptist Children’s home.For Carroll, the children’s home was a place of security, of hope and of inspiration.When his mother died, Carroll was 13 years old. He and his brother were taken to the children’s home but his sister was not yet in school, so she remained behind with an aunt and uncle until she was old enough to join them.Being at the children’s home was like being adopted by a family.“We lived in cottages with 24 others,” Carroll said. “We went to church together, like a family. I had always wanted to be part of a family, had dreamed about it. At the children’s home, I realized how important family is and hoped I would have a family of my own one day.“I think those of us that grew up at the children’s home have a deep appreciation for family and I don’t know of anything more important than that.”Carroll, like Montgomery, said the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home turned a bad situation into a positive one – a loss into gain – for so many children who lived at the children’s home in Troy. They received the home comforts and the love and caring they needed, Montgomery said. “We learned about respect, about responsibility, about teamwork. And we found a place where we belonged,” he said.The values that Montgomery learned have carried him forward in life.“If it had not been for the children’s home, I don’t know where I would be today.”James Davis, formerly of Troy, knows exactly where he would be had he not been a child of the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home. “Either in jail or dead.”“I was eight years old when my mother died,” Davis said. “My daddy was an alcoholic. He left when she died and I never saw him again until I was 15 years old. He was in his casket.” Email the author By Jaine Treadwell Print Article Book Nook to reopen Children’s Home reunion a family affair Colin Montgomery’s lost his father and gained a life.Montgomery’s story of loss and gain was much like many of the stories told at the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home Reunion held Saturday on the former grounds of the children’s home in Troy.The stories were not so much of the tellers’ displacement from the life they knew but of the love, support and nurturing found at a place that became home.

NY Attorney General subpoenas every Catholic diocese in the state

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood has issued subpoenas to every catholic diocese in the state as part of an investigation into how the church reviewed and possibly covered up allegations of sexual abuse of minors.Local district attorneys would potentially prosecute any alleged crimes.The Archdiocese of New York and the Diocese of Rockville Centre were the subjects of previous grand jury investigations in 2002. Neither report identified priests who molested kids by name, nor did the investigations result in any charges.The Archdiocese of New York said in a statement, “While we have not yet seen a subpoena, it is not a surprise to us that the Attorney General would look to begin a civil investigation, and she will find the Archdiocese of New York, and the other seven dioceses in the state, ready and eager to work together with her in the investigation.”“Since 2002, the archdiocese has shared with its 10 District Attorneys all information they have sought concerning allegations of sexual abuse of minors, and has established excellent working relationships with each of them,” the statement continued. “Not only do we provide any information they seek, they also notify us as well when they learn of an allegation of abuse, so that, even if they cannot bring criminal charges, we might investigate and remove from ministry any cleric who has a credible and substantiated allegation of abuse. We look forward to receiving the subpoena, and working with the Attorney General.”The attorney general’s office in New Jersey announced Thursday the formation of a task force to investigate Roman Catholic dioceses in that state, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said.“Grewal has authorized the task force to present evidence to a state grand jury, including through the use of subpoenas to compel testimony and the production of documents, in addition to other investigative tools,” a statement from the New Jersey attorney general’s office said.Attorney generals in both states have established hotlines for victims.The investigations follow a grand jury report in neighboring Pennsylvania, which alleged more than 1,000 victims of clergy sexual abuse over seven decades.“Predators in every diocese weaponized the Catholic faith and used it as a tool of their abuse,” Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a new conference last month. “Priests were raping little boys and girls and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing, they hid it all — for decades.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Relationship between phospholipid breakdown and freezing injury in a cell wall-less mutant of Chlamydomonas reinhardii

first_imgThe effects of freezing and thawing on a cell wall-less mutant (CW15+) of Chlamydomonas reinhardii were investigated by monitoring enzyme release, cell viability, cell ultrastructure, and lipid composition. Cells suspended in Euglena gracilis medium were extremely susceptible to freezing injury, the median lethal temperature in the presence of extracellular ice being −5.3°C. Cell damage was associated with a release of intracellular enzymes and massive breakdown of cellular organization. Changes in phospholipid fatty acid composition consistent with either a peroxidation process or phospholipase A2 activity were evident, but the time course of these changes showed clearly that alterations in phospholipid fatty acid composition were a secondary, pathological event and not the the primary cause of freeze-thaw injury in Chlamydomonas reinhardii CW15+.last_img read more
