Journalist held over reporting on Turkey’s intervention in Libya

The judge refused to release Yildiz on the grounds of a “risk of flight and harm to prosecution evidence.” He also referred to two articles she wrote for the OdTV site, one in December 2019 and the other January 2020, questioning the legitimacy of the officers placed in command of the Turkish forces deployed in Libya and the nature of their relations with Libya’s Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar. Yildiz’s lawyer, Erhan Tokatli, said the police were aiming to seize her equipment and files in order to identify her sources. He also accused them of failing to provide a copy of the digital data already seized or a copy of the warrant for the search of Yildiz’s home, which is the usual procedure. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of Müyesser Yildiz, the Ankara-based OdaTV website’s news director, who is being held for “divulging confidential information” about Turkey’s intervention in Libya.

SMC to host class contest

first_imgThis afternoon, Saint Mary’s students will be suiting up in their respective class colors to duke it out in the first annual Student Activities Board (SAB) Turkey Bowl. First years must wear purple shirts, sophomores will wear pink, juniors will don green shirts and seniors will be decked out in blue at the event, which will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on the intramural field between Opus Apartments and the Angela Athletic Facility parking lot. Junior Lauren Sweeney, co-chair of the SAB entertainment committee, said she is excited to institute a festive athletic tradition at the College. “The Turkey Bowl is a touch football game between the classes at the College,” Sweeney said. “It is a small tournament with eight to 12 on each team. The winners will receive Midnight Madness points for their class and Turkey Bowl jerseys with their graduation year on the back.” Midnight Madness, a SAB event held in February, is another competition between the classes at the College when students receive free food, prizes and play “minute-to-win-it” games. The Saint Mary’s Tostal performer is also announced at the event. There will be four games held during the tournament, with each team playing two games. While it is an interclass competition, Sweeney said it is meant to bring the classes together. “SAB is having the event to promote school spirit and Midnight Madness next semester,” Sweeney said. “Also, it is a different type of event, which will hopefully encourage more girls to come to our events.” Students are encouraged to play in the games and also come cheer on their fellow classmates by also wearing their class colors. The class with the most supporters will win bonus Midnight Madness points. Upon arrival, students participating in the Turkey Bowl must sign a waiver. Students are still able to sign up before the event if the teams are not filled yet.last_img read more

Logan Paul says he’s ‘serious’ about potential fight vs. Antonio Brown

first_imgThe former Steelers receiver was traded to the Raiders in March but never played a down for them as he was released following a series of controversies. He then wound up on the Patriots, but was cut after just one game amid allegations of sexual assault and rape.Paul believes fighting the receiver would give the out-of-work Brown a renewed focus.”I think we might be closer than anyone expected, than even we expected,” Paul added. “In my mind, this whole thing seems …They say if it’s too good to be true it probably is. In my mind, I’m getting that feeling because I genuinely do not know how serious AB is. Coming from a person who was in a s— position after Tokyo [when Paul was criticised for posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim], and in many ways the KSI fight gave me a purpose, I think this would do that for Antonio Brown, give him a nice payday, give him a chance to redeem himself. It would be one of the greatest events of 2020.” While Brown has no experience in boxing, Paul has been in the ring for two fights against fellow YouTube star KSI, who won their rematch in November after the first contest ended in a draw.Asked by TMZ whether he genuinely wanted to return to the ring to fight Brown, Paul replied: “I’m f—ing serious, bro. You know how serious I take fighting. I love talking smack; I also love backing it up.” View this post on Instagram Beat you 🏈 now 🥊 #SoonTheyForgetA post shared by Boomin (@ab) on Jan 8, 2020 at 3:29pm PSTMORE: Jake Paul calls Gib a doormat he’s ‘wiping his shoes on’ before fight vs. KSIBrown has not played an NFL snap since the middle of September and experienced a tumultuous 2019.

If something else comes up, it’ll be just one of those things. But he looks good now. His legs are clean.”As to his impressions of American Pharoah’s victories in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, Desormeaux said: “Like many others, I always thought American Pharoah was the best horse, but I had some question after the Derby when it looked like he had to reach the bottom of the tank to get the job done, so you wondered if that was all he had.“But as the Preakness approached, I don’t know why, but it became more and more apparent that he was the best horse, and it may be because he reached the bottom of the tank for the first time (in the Derby).“But he refueled, and it looks like he’s head and shoulders above everybody else.” LA FIERA DEBUTS FOR HOLLENDORFER IN MELAIR STAKES            La Fiera, a newcomer to the Jerry Hollendorfer barn, makes her Santa Anita debut in Saturday’s $200,000 Melair stakes for three-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles.The daughter of Comic Strip has had five career starts, the last four at Golden Gate Fields where she won three times over the Tapeta surface.“She’s doing well,” said Hollendorfer assistant Dan Ward. “We’ve only had her here a few days. She went to the gate Wednesday, went to the paddock and galloped over the track.“She’s a nice filly. She has good form; she’s very steady.”The Melair: Barbara Beatrice, Tiago Pereira, 8-1; Thermodynamics, Gary Stevens, 3-1; Sheer Pleasure, Tyler Baze, 5-2; Niassa, Flavien Prat, 6-1; Ashley’s Baby, Mike Smith, 3-1; La Fiera, Rafael Bejarano, 3-1; and Tribal Express, Alonso Quinonez, 15-1.

Richard Mandella has The Californian on tap May 30 for Precisionist winner Catch a Flight in advance of the Grade I, $500,000 Gold Cup at Santa Anita June 27 . . . Trainer Mike Machowsky is sitting on 499 career victories. “It’s a nice little milestone,” Machowsky said. “I’ve been training on my own for 24 years, something like that. I didn’t really know I was approaching 500 until a friend of mine pointed it out a few weeks ago.” As to venerable Caracortado, the old stakes winner is still around. “He’s still has the same old quarter crack BS (on his right front foot),” Machowsky said of the California-bred son of Cat Dreams, now eight. “I hope to get him back to the races at some point, but I have to do right by him. No time table. You know how horses are.” Caracortado last raced on Aug. 13, 2014, finishing fifth in the Green Flash at Del Mar. In 20 career starts, he has seven wins including the Robert B Lewis Stakes in 2013 when it was a Grade II race, and the Grade II Del Mar Handicap in 2011. TREASURY, IRS URGED TO MODERNIZE TAX REGULATIONSThe National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) is encouraging members of the racing industry to request that the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service modernize tax regulations relating to withholding and reporting of winning pari-mutuel wagers.This regulatory change would eliminate a high percentage of reporting and withholding tickets and could increase pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing by as much as 10 percent, or $1 billion in one year alone, according to Steve Crist of Daily Racing Form. Increased handle will lead to higher purses and added strength in the bloodstock markets.According to the NTRA, the Treasury Department and IRS should be urged to authorize modernization of the tax regulations relating to withholding and reporting of winning pari-mutuel wagers because the current method is unfair and outdated.The NTRA has created a simple, customized message to submit directly to the Treasury.

He came close with War Emblem, Silver Charm (1997) and Real Quiet (1998).Told American Pharoah looked like he was floating over Pimlico’s inundated sloppy track en route to his seven-length romp in the Preakness last Saturday, Victor was quick to respond. “Me too,” he said, laughing. “I was floating, too. My boots were full of water.“It’s amazing how life is. I never thought I would win three Kentucky Derbies. After I won the first (on War Emblem in 2002), four or five years went by and I never dreamed I’d go back again, and then last year here comes California Chrome, the favorite for the Kentucky Derby, who won by daylight and came very close to winning the Triple Crown.“Now we’re in position to do it again in a back-to-back situation with an amazing horse like American Pharoah. But let me tell you about the Preakness. I never rode a horse in my life in so much rain. That was my first time.“But it was fun. Pharoah handled it very well. I was more concerned about the horse but he ran an unbelievable race and I’m here again. You never know what lies ahead or what the future holds.“But I never get too caught up in the moment. I just keep working on my career, doing things normally, taking it one day at a time.”As to the Belmont, Espinoza understandably feels “confident” about American Pharoah.“I can’t look back and worry about the two times I lost the Belmont,” Espinoza said. “When I rode War Emblem, he stumbled really bad at the start and that was it. My chance was gone right away.“California Chrome was tired going into the race and his energy wasn’t quite what it was. Also, another horse stepped on his foot and that happens when a horse doesn’t have the energy it should. They do things in slow motion, and that’s what happened.“So again my chances went when the gates opened. Twice my chances were eliminated like that. But it’s different this time with American Pharoah. I know each horse is different and every time I’m there, I think differently, too.“It’s all going to depend on Baffert and if he has the horse ready. Baffert knows how to train a horse to be ready for the Belmont, so that gives me a lot of confidence, as it does with other horses I ride in big races like this.“If the trainer has his horse ready, then my job is easy. After that, I have all the confidence in the world.”            Espinoza celebrates his 43rd birthday tomorrow, but would patiently wait two weeks to receive a gift for the man who has everything.“The Triple Crown,” he said. “That’s the present I need.”ZINVOR IN GOOD SPOT FOR WIN IN SNOW CHIEF STAKES            Zinvor competes in his first stakes race Saturday when he runs in the $200,000 Snow Chief Stakes for three-year-olds at 1 1/8 miles on turf. The gelded son of the late Tribal Rule has two wins on Santa Anita’s turf course, each at one mile.“He’s doing really well,” trainer John Sadler said. “It’s a key race for him. It’s his conditions; California-bred, three-year-old, grass. It’s just perfect for him.”The field for the Snow Chief, race eight of 10: Cardiac, Santiago Gonzalez, 8-1; Richard’s Boy, Fernando Perez, 7-2; Book Thirty Four, Felipe Valdez, 20-1; Zinvor, Victor Espinoza, 7-2; Grazen Sky, Rafael Bejarano, 5-2; Chief of Staff, Tyler Baze, 12-1; Temple Keys, Drayden Van Dyke, 15-1; Neveradoubt, Flavien Prat, 20-1; Rocko’s Wheel, Joe Talamo, 6-1; Pulmarack, Corey Nakatani, 6-1; and Over Par, Mario Gutierrez, 30-1.last_img read more

Red alert as traffic light vandals put pedestrians in danger

first_imgDamage caused by vandals to traffic lights in Letterkenny is putting the lives of both old and young people at risk.Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh revealed the lights were taking up to 45 seconds to change to allow people to cross the busy Glencar Road.He had called on the local council to report the problem to the supplier and have repairs carried out as soon as possible. Councillor Kavanagh had asked the council to look at the lights and determine if the waiting time to change for pedestrians could be shortened.He said “It was taking 45 seconds for the lights to change and children in particular were not waiting and were taking chances by running across the very busy circular road.”The council revealed that following their inspection of the lights they discovered that the lights had been vandalised resulting in delays to the changing intervals.Cllr. Kavanagh welcomed the council’s commitment to getting the issue addressed but expressed disappointment that the lights had been vandalised. “It’s alarming that anyone would vandalise the lights and in the process put people, particularly children, in danger with such reckless behaviour,” he said.Red alert as traffic light vandals put pedestrians in danger was last modified: October 13th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Jimmy Kavanaghdangerletterkennytraffic lightslast_img read more

The State Fair’s quiet side

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Dan Armitage, host of Buckeye SportsmanOne of my favorite mid-summer destinations, the Ohio State Fair gets underway July 25 though Aug. 5 at the Ohio Expositions Center in Columbus, where the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) offers a welcome quiet space that for decades has served as a great place for taking a break from the midway and other traditional fair attractions. Located at the Natural Resources Park on the fairground’s southeast corner, the area is a popular “green space” with outdoors-minded families looking to “take five” or to take part in some hook and bullet activities. The channel cats that used to prowl the popular kiddie fishing ponds have been replaced with easier-to-catch sunfish and the portable kayaking pond has become a permanent fixture. Kids can try their hand at several shooting sports, and there are ongoing wildlife programs and demonstrations, as well as displays of live birds and animals, to entertain and educate all. For more information on the park and activities, visit I’ll be there with the family on opening day, taking in the Beach Boys concert that night — one of the rare bands from my era that both me and my 18-year-old son agree “are pretty good” — let alone still touring.last_img read more

Return On Time Invested

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Your clients expect you to help them understand the return they will receive on the money invested in your product, service, or solutions. If you can’t help them understand their return on investment, they aren’t likely to invest their money. They just won’t take action.There is a lesson worth learning here.What if you held yourself to that same standard when it comes to where you invest your time? What if you measured each activity that you take for its return on time invested, refusing to spend your time where there was no return to be had?Let’s look at your ROTI.A Low Return on Time InvestedSome of the activities that you engage in produce a very low return for a high investment of your time. Many of these activities look and feel like work. They give you a false sense of accomplishment. But they produce nothing.Much of the time you spend in your email inbox produces no return on time invested. You can spend countless hours each day in email, especially if you check your email first thing in the morning, check your cell phone every 20 minutes, and live with your email open throughout the day. The return on the time invested in email is low because most of it is worthless and much of it is simply other people’s requests and demands.You can add to this list of low return on time invested activities many of your meetings, a lot of time you spend on the Internet, much of the time you spend with your peers around the water cooler, and some of the time you fritter away with some of your friendly clients.Ask yourself: What is my investment of time here going to produce? If the answer is “nothing,” then take the decision to invest your time somewhere else.High Return on Time InvestedAll of the above activities are sometimes necessary. Just not at the level most people engage in them. The most productive people spend their time where it produces a greater return on investment. They invest their time where it produces the outcomes that they really want.In sales, the most productive investment of your time is time invested with your clients and your dream clients (my word for your best prospects). Face-to-face sales calls are what opens opportunities, advances opportunities, and wins deals. These activities produce a high return on investment.There are dozens of high return on invested time activities, like time spent with existing clients, time spent with the team that delivers for your clients, time spent nurturing relationships, and time spent prospecting.You can’t spend every minute on high return on time invested activities. But you can improve the amount of time there, and you can crowd out the low return on time-invested activities.QuestionsThink about the last couple hours of your day today. Were the activities you were engaged in high return on time invested?What are the activities that produce the highest return for your invested time?What activities produce little to no return on the time you spend?How can you crowd out the low return on invested time activities?last_img read more
