Defence Man should be found guilty of seconddegree murder in womans death

first_imgCALGARY – A lawyer for a man on trial for first-degree murder in the death of a Calgary mother of four says Curtis Healy should be found guilty of second-degree murder instead.A jury heard evidence that Healy met Dawns Baptiste on a light-rail transit train while she was on her way to stay with a friend and that she told him to leave her alone after they walked away from the station.Court heard Healy became enraged at the rejection and then stomped Baptiste’s head, dragged her through a hedge, raped her while she was unconscious and struck her over the head with a large rock.“This case isn’t about who caused the death of Ms. Baptiste. Curtis Healy caused Ms. Baptiste’s death. Curtis Healy sexually assaulted Ms. Baptiste — we know that,” defence lawyer Shamsher Kothari said in closing arguments Wednesday.As several of Baptiste’s friends and relatives watched from the gallery, Kothari asked jurors to convict Healy of second-degree murder.“You’ll convict Mr. Healy of murder, but it’s not first degree murder.”Prosecutor Carla MacPhail said because Baptiste’s killing took place along with the rape, it’s first-degree murder. But Kothari suggested to jurors that there is much that is unclear with the sequence of events in the early morning of Feb. 11, 2015.Kothari said a statement Healy gave to police four days later should be treated with skepticism.Jurors were shown video of the interview with Det. Colum Cavilla, during which Healy confessed to the rape and killing of Baptiste, saying he’d used the rock to “finish her off.”“Mr. Healy is easily led and he basically gives parrot-like answers within that inherently unreliable statement,” Kothari said.“I’m going to suggest to you that during these inherently unreliable statements, Det. Cavilla fed Mr. Healy certain words and themes and I’m going to suggest that Mr. Healy is a low functioning person and because of that he latched on to certain words.”Prosecutor Carla MacPhail said it is possible that Baptiste punched Healy, as he describes in the police statement, but that jurors should put no stock in his contention that she tried to stab him.“It is quite clear that if that punch happened, it was to underline that sentiment: get away from me, an effort to repel him away from her,” she said.“I suggest it is proven that Mr. Healy became enraged with Dawns Baptiste after she said what she said … And this state of anger, in the Crown’s submission, is consistent with the vicious extent of the stomping, the dragging, the raping, the striking her with a rock.”MacPhail also told jurors that security footage shows Healy was not so drunk that night that he was stumbling and unco-ordinated.She said it is possible that Healy has fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, as he mentions in the police statement, “but the fact remains that he was absolutely capable of understanding and providing answers to Det. Cavilla on Feb. 15.”She said many of the things he told the detective proved to be lies, and that at numerous points on the night of Baptiste’s death he made efforts to deflect suspicion.“You know that Mr. Healy is capable of resisting suggestion, you know he is capable of saying no, because he has done so numerous times during that interaction with Det. Cavilla,” MacPhail said.Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Charlene Anderson is to give instructions to the jury on Thursday afternoon.last_img read more

UN refugee agency set to start voluntary Rwandan repatriation programme

The five-truck convoy is expected to repatriate a first group of 200 refugees out of 1,165 Rwandan refugees who have registered with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for help in returning to their central African country. The operation is being organized by UNHCR and the Governments of Uganda and Rwanda to assist the voluntary repatriation of some 23,000 Rwandans in Uganda as part of the wider effort to bring Rwandans home from other countries with which the agency has signed similar agreements, including Burundi, the Central African Republic, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, the Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. In mid-2003, there were an estimated 60,000 Rwandan refugees scattered throughout these countries. Monday’s returnees will be transported to a transit facility where they will receive a reintegration package consisting of basic kitchen utensils, plastic sheeting for shelter, blankets, jerry cans and soap. UNHCR trucks will transport some to their home areas or to the nearest location, while others will receive transport assistance via commercial vehicles. read more

Womens role in advancing peace and security must be supported – UN

“We need to ensure that women have opportunities to play their full role in peace and security,” the Executive Director of the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), Michelle Bachelet, told a debate of the Security Council on women and peace and security.She noted that wherever there is conflict, whether in Mali, Syria, the Middle East, or the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), “women must be part of the solution.” Today’s debate, which was originally scheduled for late October but was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy, marks the 12th anniversary of Security Council resolution 1325, which called for women’s engagement in conflict resolution and peacebuilding.Meeting briefly in the wake of the storm, the Council issued a presidential statement on the issue, in which it called on the international community to give women’s civil society organizations a prominent role in the negotiation, planning and implementation of peace processes and post-conflict development programmes.In his annual report on women, peace and security, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noted measures that have improved coordination and accountability and highlights a growing number of inspiring examples of women, peace and security in action. In countries such as Kyrgyzstan, Timor-Leste, Haiti, South Sudan, Liberia, Nepal and many others, women are leading innovative approaches to prevent conflict and violence and build peace in their communities.Ms. Bachelet, who presented the report, highlighted what women’s groups in Mali are doing right now to contribute to non-violent solutions to the crisis in that country, which has been divided since rebels took control of the north earlier this year.“In spite of their absence from official conflict resolution processes, women leaders in the North are using informal channels to call on the leaders of armed groups to participate in peace dialogues,” she noted.“Just two weeks ago,” she added, “nearly 1,000 women leaders and members of civil society groups gathered in Bamako and delivered a common call for peace, expressing solidarity across ethnic and other divisions and recommended specific measures to protect women’s rights and prevent violence against women and children.”Stressing the importance of “going the extra mile” to ensure that women can play their full role, Ms. Bachelet called on world leaders to provide determined leadership, dedicated resources and direct opportunities to enable women to contribute to the maintenance of peace and security.Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson, delivering remarks on behalf of Mr. Ban, noted that the role of women’s organizations across the world in preventing violence, resolving conflict and building the foundations for peace is well known.“Our challenge is to become more systematic in supporting and scaling up these initiatives and making the necessary links to formal peace processes,” he said.Also highlighting the case of Mali, Mr. Eliasson noted the fact that the rights of women and girls are being curtailed in the northern part of the country shows how armed conflict affects women and men differently. “This means that women have to be part of the solution,” he said. “Engaging women and promoting gender equality as part of our work for peace and security is a daily responsibility and an unfinished mission for all of us,” he added. “It is time for us to finally recognize the role and power of women to help us build a peaceful world.”In his remarks to the event, the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous, said that UN peacekeeping missions have supported important progress in some areas, notably women’s political participation at local and national levels. In other areas, including the protection of women activists, more could be achieved.He described how, a week ago, some 5,000 women flooded the main commercial avenue in Kinshasa, DRC’s capital, to protest the fall of the provincial city of Goma to the 23 March Movement (M23) rebel group – the most massively organized non-violent protest in the country following the fall of the eastern city. “However, women have not been given any political leverage in the regional negotiations aimed at bringing peace to the embattled eastern part of the country,” he added. Mr. Ladsous emphasized that the key to removing the obstacles that impede women’s full participation in conflict prevention and peacebuilding is the active, systematic consultation with local actors and leaders, including women’s civil society organizations. “This is the only way to develop effective, context-specific and gender-aware solutions.”In the lead-up to the Council’s debate, women activists and women’s organizations met with senior UN leadership in over 20 countries, facilitated by UN Women, the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), the Department of Political Affairs (DPA) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP), to discuss challenges and make their recommendations on issues relating to women and peace and security. read more

Nuclear testing has disastrous consequences for people and planet General Assembly told

While acknowledging significant progress in banning nuclear tests, Mr. Guterres said the day is “a reminder of our moral obligation to ensure a legally-binding prohibition on nuclear weapons”. He said he was honoured to have been jointly awarded the Nazarbayev Prize for a Nuclear-Weapons-Free World and Global Security, together with the late Yukiya Amano, calling his co-recipient “an outstanding champion for the peaceful use of nuclear energy”.“The only path that will lead us to this noble goal is through the verifiability of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) and its universalization”, asserted Mr. Zerbo.The CTBT chief praised the “historic decision” by Kazakhstan’s first president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, to renounce nuclear arms, send the country’s nuclear warheads to Russia, and permanently close the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, saying that President Nazarbayev “understood that there was much more to gain from denuclearizing than going forward as a nuclear possessor State”.While these decisions may seem obvious now, Mr. Zerbo upheld that “it took great courage and leadership”.Treaty of Rarotonga Noting a recent visit to Tuvalu, he recalled that 35 years earlier the 15th South Pacific Forum decided that a nuclear free zone should be established in the South Pacific.Today the South Pacific Nuclear-Free Zone, or Treaty of Rarotonga, prohibits the possession, use, testing or stationing of nuclear weapons by any country and embodies “the determination of a local population, represented by sovereign States, to live in peace and independence and protect their people and environment”, according to Mr. Zerbo.Bringing the CTBT into force and fulfilling the overarching objective of the International Day against Nuclear Tests will require the concerted and sustained multilateral efforts of scientists, diplomats, politicians, academics, the media and all civil society “at every step”, he said. “Peoples from regions as diverse as the South Pacific, North America, and North Africa have equally suffered from poisoned groundwater, radioactive fallout, and other side effects to health and living conditions”, he elaborated. Nuclear terrorismThe risk of nuclear proliferation and the threat of nuclear terrorism continue to pose great challenges for the international community.To guarantee the continued viability of nuclear power for peace and development, “we must reinforce and build upon the legal framework that has been painstakingly established to keep nuclear risks low, while ensuring that countries can continue to benefit from the peaceful uses of nuclear energy”, spelled out Mr. Zerbo.He called the CTBT “a crucial, and long overdue, step” that will help to ensure the continued vitality of the international nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament regime. Nuclear testing ‘simply not acceptable’Secretary-General António Guterres noted that the day, which in 1991 marked the closing of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, served two purposes: “First, to pay tribute to the victims of nuclear tests and second, to raise awareness of the continued threat that such tests pose to the environment and international security”.  Over the last seven decades, some 2,000 nuclear tests have been carried out, “unleashing a terrible toll”, the UN chief said, devastating “pristine environments and local populations around the world”. Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) said he hoped the day would “inspire countries to take concrete measures that will allow us to finally reach our objective of a world free from the dangers of nuclear testing”, noting at the meeting marking the occasion that there needed to be an “unmistakable message…that our work is not yet done”. At #UNGA High Level Meeting to commemorate & promote #IDANT, @SinaZerbo stresses that “IDANT provides opportunity to send a clear & unmistakable message to int community that our work is not yet done. The business of ending #nuclear tests for all time remains unfinished.” pic.twitter.com/VeQDuX8IkZ— CTBTO (@ctbto_alerts) September 9, 2019 And although the CTBT is widely supported and its verification mechanism, the International Monitoring System, has helped facilitate international peace and security, the Treaty cannot enter into force until it has been signed and ratified by China, Egypt, India, Iran, Israel North Korea Pakistan, and the United States, each of which possessed nuclear power or research reactors at the time of the 1996 Conference on Disarmament“I want to use this opportunity to once again call upon all States to sign and ratify the CTBT without further delay, and for those remaining eight States to do so with a sense of urgency”, the Secretary-General said, adding “In the 21st century, nuclear testing is simply not acceptable”. read more

Guy urinates in back garden as Street View car goes by sues

first_imgA French man, whose name has not been released, is suing Google because a picture of him urinating in his own back garden appeared on Street View.Apparently he happened to be “watering his plants” at the same moment the Street View car passed through his tiny French village in Maine-et-Loire. The camera was mounted high enough on the car to see over into the garden, and caught a full, yet slightly blurred view of what he was doing.At the time, he had no idea what had happened. It wasn’t until his neighbors started pointing and laughing that he knew something was up, and finally located the image of himself in mid flow on Street View. So what does anyone do in this situation? Ask Google to blur the image and then have a good laugh with your neighbors? Nope, this guy is suing Google for making him “an object of ridicule” and causing him undue distress.Although Google is classing the lawsuit as “implausible,” the man was on his own property when the photo was captured, and it was taken without his permission. This is also a lawsuit that will play out in the French courts, which in the past have frowned upon Google’s Street View activities.The one question that remains is why he was urinating in his own garden. Was the toilet blocked, or is he a very keen gardener and also likes to recycle? We may never know.via Digital Trendslast_img read more

Athens office market hostile to business

first_imgAthens offers the smallest discounts in rental rates for professional properties among 21 cities in Europe, the annual report by Savills estate agents has found.The average lease rate discount recorded in the Greek capital was 2.5 per cent, the UK-based company found, which translates to free rent for a period of just a-month-and-a-half on a five-year lease for a renovated office space at a prime location.According to the study, after the Athens market, the smallest financial incentive for individuals or companies to rent professional premises is found in the German cities of Berlin and Hamburg (where discounts average at 5 per cent), followed by Frankfurt and Dusseldorf (both at 6.7 per cent). In contrast, markets where demand for professional space is traditionally very high, such as in Paris and particularly in La Defence neighbourhood, and London, continue to offer the best incentives in Europe by reducing rental rates by as much as 20.8 and 18.3 per cent respectively, meaning 13 and 11 months free tenancy in a five-year period.According to experts, offering several months free rent to new tenants on long leases is a fundamental part of how mature markets work and how they attract prominent entrepreneurs and companies to their commercial districts.The friendliest city in Europe to rent professional space is Milan, where lease discounts can reach as high as 25 per cent, translating to 15 rent-free months over a period of five years.On the flip side, parts of Europe where incentives are strong also have very high rental rates, compelling property owners to follow more aggressive tactics to attract new clientele. Another factor contributing to bigger discounts is the level of competition in any given professional property market, which is normally determined by the percentage of commercial spaces that have remained untenanted for a long period of time.In its study, Savills found that market conditions in Europe have seen an improvement since the start of the year due to a spike in demand, resulting in smaller discounts at prominent locations. In London, for example, there were more new professional leases signed this year than there were in 2000. On average, the period of gratis rental in the 21 markets that were studied has declined by 11.4 per cent so far this year, with Dublin and Hamburg leading the way, as discounts there have dropped by half since the start of 2014.On the other hand, the rental market for professional spaces in Athens has seen a significant drop in rental rates since the start of the crisis. According to the most recent data of Savills Hellas, from the start of the crisis and through end-2013, the decline in professional rates is as high as 40 per cent in some cases. Comparatively low rental rates explain why discounts are not more generous, as is the case in other parts of Europe. Another factor is that the percentage of vacancies is extremely low in new, modern professional properties, given a general shortage in the Greek capital. International realty investors, especially those who buy with the purpose of renting, note the absence of modern buildings in Athens as a disincentive.Another interesting finding of the survey is that there continues to be a large divide between what renters are looking for and what owners expect to get for their properties in Athens. Savills concludes companies looking to lease a professional space expect to pay rates between 25-30 per cent lower than average asking prices. The company also adds that interest in new leases is just starting to show signs of a rebound in the Greek capital, stressing that it will take several years before a recovery is seen in the professional realty market.Source: ekathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Amazons Jeff Bezos says National Enquirer is blackmailing him with nude photos

first_img Share your voice Jeff Bezos stares down nude photo ‘blackmail’ attempts… Now playing: Watch this: Tags Jeff Bezos’ $140 billion divorce: How it affects Amazon Related story Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has published emails allegedly from the National Enquirer that detail photos the tabloid threatened to publish. Jim Watson/AFP/Getty Images Jeff Bezos alleged Thursday that “top people” at the National Enquirer tried to blackmail him by threatening to publish nude photos unless the Amazon chief ended an investigation into how the publication obtained text messages between him and his girlfriend.In a highly personal blog post, Bezos said the publication this week threatened to publish intimate photos of him and Lauren Sanchez, a former entertainment TV host with whom Bezos was linked romantically during his marriage. Bezos’ post includes email exchanges that he said prove an extortion plot against him.”Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I’ve decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten,” Bezos said in the post, which includes emails allegedly from National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc.On Friday morning, American Media said in a statement that it will investigate Bezos’ claims.”Upon completion of that investigation, the Board will take whatever appropriate action is necessary,” the statement said. Last month, the National Enquirer was the first to print details of Bezos’ affair with Sanchez, which led to the dissolution of Bezos’ 25-year marriage to MacKenzie Bezos.According to one email, the photos include “a naked selfie [of Bezos] in a bathroom – while wearing a wedding ring” and a “glimpse” of Sanchez’s “nether region,” among others.”Well, that [email] got my attention. But not in the way they likely hoped. Any personal embarrassment AMI could cause me takes a back seat because there’s a much more important matter involved here. If in my position I can’t stand up to this kind of extortion, how many people can?” Bezos said.The blog post comes amid ongoing tension between Bezos and Trump, with the president widely seen as targeting Amazon because Bezos also owns The Washington Post, which has reported critically on the president. In April 2018, Trump ordered an evaluation of the US Postal Service’s finances, after weeks of accusing Amazon of not paying its fair share of postage.The blog post comes as questions are already swirling about how Bezos’ divorce could affect Amazon. If reports that he has no prenuptial agreement are true, his wife may end up with half his fortune and half his ownership in Amazon. Potential blackmail from the same publication that first reported on Bezos’ affair adds a new layer of scandal and creates more problems for Bezos.First published Feb. 7 at 3:50 p.m. PTUpdate, Feb. 7 at 5:58 p.m. PT and Feb. 8 at 6:25 a.m.PT: Adds context and AMI statement.Correction, Feb. 7 at 4:35 p.m. PT: Clarifies that AMI’s emails weren’t to Bezos directly.CNET Magazine: Check out a sample of the stories in CNET’s newsstand edition.CNET en Español: Get all your tech news and reviews in Spanish.center_img 2:18 37 Comments Tech Industry Amazon Jeff Bezos In the emails, sent to an attorney for a Bezos security consultant, an AMI executive threatened to publish the photos unless Bezos made false statements that AMI was never “politically motivated or influenced by political forces,” according to the blog post. The Amazon’s CEO notes that David Pecker, CEO of American Media, recently struck an immunity deal with the Justice Department to reveal President Donald Trump’s role in hush-money agreements with women ahead of the 2016 US election.AMI admitted in December to “working in concert” with the Trump campaign to pay off a woman who accused Trump of having an affair with her in order to quash the story.last_img read more

Astrologer frets over Virat Kohlis birth then declares India wont win World

first_imgVirat Kohli’s year of birth will prevent him from winning the 2019 World CupMatt King/Getty ImagesFamous astrologer Greenstone Lobo has made an announcement that will disappoint all those Indian cricket fans who believe in his soothsaying abilities. He has predicted that India won’t win the upcoming ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup. The main reason cited by him for this prophecy is the birth year of India captain Virat Kohli.Lobo, who is an astrologer that claims to use scientific methods in his calculations, said that if Virat Kohli had been born in 1986 or 1987, he would have been likely to lead his side to triumph. However, Kohli was born in 1988 and hence, would have to face disappointment, as per the analysis of the Mumbai-based astrologer.Pining for accuracyIn fact, so keen was Lobo to foresee better prospects for the Indian team that he called Kohli’s coach, Rajkumar Sharma to enquire if the cricketer was actually older than his declared age. “I called Virat’s childhood coach, Rajkumar Sharma, and explained my worry that India might not win the World Cup in 2019 if Virat was indeed born in 1988. I hoped desperately that I would get 1986 or 1987 as the real year of the Indian captain’s birth. He remained silent for a moment before whispering a yes,” narrated the famed soothsayer. MS Dhoni is beyond his time, according to the astrologerRitam Banerjee/Getty ImagesOut of luck MSDBut if one presumes that Kohli’s birthdate is the only impediment to India’s success, he would be wrong. In another stunning astrological revelation, Lobo said that even the presence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni would prevent India from bringing the cup home.”Yes, we could have won the World Cup if the team had no Dhoni,” was another blunt statement made by Lobo during this interaction with the media.This pronouncement, which will infuriate the fans of the former skipper, was also born out of the horoscopic analysis done by the astrologer. “I have the utmost respect for Dhoni, the batsman. However, even though I may not like it much myself, I need to speak objectively from the perspective of an Indian astrologer and I can see that Dhoni’s presence in the 2019 Indian squad could well rob India’s another great chance to win a World Cup. Dhoni always had the luck but now is not his time,” said Lobo.Winning the 10-team tournament which would involve every team playing each other would be a hard enough task for the men-in-blue. But if you believe in the predictive powers of horoscopic tables, it is impossible.last_img read more

Uber driver gets stuck on staircase of course blames navigation app

first_imgBy Sasha Lekach2018-03-27 01:59:42 UTC An Uber driver messed up big time while picking up passengers in San Francisco.Instead of leaving a grocery store parking lot, you know, through a normal exit, the driver took the stairs.Stairs are lauded as a healthy alternative to elevators or escalators, but in this case this was the wrong choice. Naturally, after making the supremely embarrassing move, the first thing the Uber driver did was blame Uber’s navigation system for leading the car down the pedestrian stairway. I’ve driven in this particular Safeway parking lot at the busy intersection of Church and Market streets many times, and it’s admittedly unclear how to get out of the lot, but it’s not drive-down-a-staircase unclear.Uber confirmed that the driver was on the ride-hailing app at the time of the “incident” and that two passengers in the car weren’t injured. The driver wasn’t hurt, either, except for their ego, presumably. The driver was on the way to pick up a third passenger for a shared Pool ride. Considering it was quite the dilemma to get the car off the stairs, I’m guessing that passenger had to get another ride. Others have had trouble handling discrepancies between what’s on a navigation app and what’s on the road in front on them. Take this woman who drove into a lake. It’s reminiscent of The Office episode where Steve Carell’s Michael Scott character has no choice but to obey the GPS and drive into a body of water.After all, you can always trust apps.
