Homicide investigators say murder of Hells Angel in Vancouver area was targeted

first_imgSURREY, B.C. — A man described by homicide investigators as a member of the Hells Angels has been identified as the victim of a suspected targeted slaying in Metro Vancouver. Cpl. Frank Jang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says the body of 43-year-old Chad Wilson was found Sunday morning in Maple Ridge, where he was living.Jang says Wilson was a member of the Hells Angels and describes the killing of a member of the biker-gang as “unsettling news.”He says detectives will be working with gang enforcement experts to avoid any retaliation.Wilson had a previous criminal conviction in the United States stemming from a shooting in South Dakota in 2006 that injured five affiliate members of a rival motorcycle gang and Jang says officers are looking into his past.Police are also appealing to Wilson’s friends in the Hells Angels to come forward.Jang said Tuesday that members of the Hells Angels may have “intimate knowledge” of what happened and he urged them to speak to officers, regardless of their current involvement in criminal activity.“We will go to wherever you are, we will sit down and speak with you and we will treat you with the utmost respect. We want to solve your friend’s — your associate’s — murder as much as you do,” Jang told a news conference in Surrey.The cause of Wilson’s death has not been released but Jang says the homicide team is working with Ridge Meadows RCMP, forensic specialists, the BC Coroners Service and gang enforcement units from across Metro Vancouver.Wilson’s body was found near the banks of the Fraser River under the Golden Ears Bridge.In November 2008, Wilson and a co-accused were acquitted by a jury in South Dakota of attempted murder for a 2006 gunfight that injured members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.Five people were hurt in an exchange of gunfire. Wilson told his trial that he fired in self-defence after the Outlaws started shooting.Following his acquittal, Wilson was subsequently convicted by the same South Dakota court of being a non-immigrant alien in possession of a firearm and sentenced to four years in prison.— With fires from Associated Press.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

No casualties after blast apparently targets election workers in Afghanistan

There were no casualties and only minor material damage when a vehicle of the Joint Electoral Management Body (JEMB) was hit by an improvised explosive device on Saturday, UN spokesman Manoel de Almeida e Silva told reporters in Kabul today. Citing preliminary reports, he said the device “had a remote-controlled system and it seems that it could have targeted this JEMB vehicle.”The standard suspension of UN missions to the area will remain pending a complete assessment.Measures to improve security are underway in Jalalabad, meanwhile, where the cantonment of heavy weapons was slated to start today. In that city and in Kabul, some 13,780 officers and soldiers have been disarmed, including 12,350 currently being reintegrated into civilian life, Mr. de Almeida e Silva said.


Iraq UN and partners race to reach thousands fleeing areas west of

“Thousands of people who have been trapped in Heet for months are trying to reach safety,” Lise Grande, the UN’s Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq said in a press release from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).She stressed that the UN does not have full access and “we are very worried that some of the families who are escaping are in areas very close to the front lines. We are worried for their safety.”According to OCHA, displaced families are receiving ready-to-eat food, safe drinking water and hygiene kits through the Rapid Response Mechanism, which is managed by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme and supported by the UN’s Population Fund (UNFPA), the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and nine non-governmental organizations.Health assistance is being provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), which has dispatched two mobile health clinics and two medical teams.“You can tell how difficult conditions are in Heet by how many people are seeking urgent health assistance. The mobile clinics dealt with 1,300 consultations during just their first two days,” explained Mr. Grande.Prior to the displacement from Heet, more than 53,000 people had been displaced in Anbar Governorate since the beginning of the year. Many of these families have sought safety and help in already overcrowded camps and temporary settlements in and around Ameriyat al Falluja internally displaced persons complex, Habbaniyah Tourist City, and Bzebiz bridge.The United Nations and partners have requested $861 million for 2016 to provide emergency relief to 7.3 million vulnerable Iraqis. Only nine per cent – $75 million – has been received so far.“The humanitarian crisis in Iraq continues to worsen. Additional resources are urgently needed so we can help people who depend on humanitarians to survive,” said Ms. Grande.OCHA says that the humanitarian crisis in Iraq is highly complex, volatile, becoming protracted and expected to widen and worsen in the year ahead. The crisis is driven by unpredictable, massive waves of displacement caused by armed conflict. From January 2014 to November 2015, 3.2 million people were forced to flee their homes in several big waves of displacement, and multiple smaller ones. read more

Parliament in crisis as dual citizenship saga deepens

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram After a week that saw deputy PM Barnaby Joyce referred to the High Court over his former New Zealand citizenship, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been urged to stop parliament from sitting until the Court rules on the fate of Nationals leader.The ongoing fiasco took yet another dramatic turn on Thursday afternoon, as parliament adjourned for two weeks, when deputy Nationals leader Fiona Nash revealed she was a dual British citizen. Senator Nash said she will not be standing down from her ministerial duties while the Court adds her case to its growing list of referrals. Her UK citizenship is understood to be by descent as her father was born in Scotland.So far five senators have been referred to the High Court; two have stepped down pending the Court’s ruling, and on Friday Senator Nick Xenophon’s possible British citizenship was called into question. In increasingly partisan behaviour, both the Coalition and Labor have encouraged speculation about their respective overseas-born adversaries as well as MPs and senators who have second-generation ties to other nations.As media speculation has run rife over the dual citizenship issue, Labor’s line has been to refer to the statement given by ALP national secretary Noah Carroll, that the party’s citizenship checks have always exhaustive “ensuring that every candidate satisfies all constitutional requirements” before nomination, and “where there are any issues with respect to dual citizenship – potential or otherwise – candidates are required to take all reasonable steps to renounce and satisfy the requirements of Section 44.” Mr Carroll added that a candidate would not have been nominated by the ALP without being cleared through this process.Earlier in the week Leader of the House Christopher Pyne suggested four Labor MPs – Maria Vamvakinou (born in Greece); Tony Zappia (born in Italy); and Justine Keay and Susan Lamb (whose fathers were British), should be referred to the High Court if they failed to provide documentation of renouncing their foreign citizenships. Labour declined the demand but the MPs offered a timeline of their renunciations.Ms Vamvakinou added more to her public comments on the matter, originally tweeted on 20 July, “I renounced my citizenship in August 2000 and I took all necessary steps to comply with Section 44 of the Australian Constitution”. The Labor MP tweeted on Tuesday: “On 9 August 2000, I formally renounced Greek citizenship via the Consul General in Melbourne”. The Member for Calwell said she received acknowledgment of her renunciation letter on 21 August 2000.Crossbench senators including Nick Xenophon have called for an independent audit of all federal parliamentarians to identify potential dual citizens. Both Labor and the Coalition have so far rejected the move.last_img read more

It’s a great occasion for us and our fans, so we hope for an entertaining match and for Sampdoria to progress.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“These two sides have a similar philosophy, we’re only separated by one point in the Serie A table and we’ll both play to win. I recognise the quality of Milan, but anything can happen in a one-off match at Marassi. I’d say it’s 50-50.“Milan have played in the last two Coppa Italia Finals, so it’s hardly as if we’re expecting an easy ride. This team was built to win.“I use my best line-up for the game, so don’t ask about squad rotation, because that is insulting to the players.

Tire strikes 2 runners on Rickenbacker Causeway

first_imgOne runner was shocked to hear about the accident. “That’s horrendous,” she said. “I’m here a couple of times a week, and it’s always crowded, but when a wheel comes off a truck, that’s quite exceptional. Everyone knows this area is not safe to bike, to walk.”Her family is flying in from Ecuador to be by her side.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. MIAMI (WSVN) – Two runners were struck by a tire, Monday morning, while jogging on the Rickenbacker Causeway.According to officials, a tractor-trailer was traveling westbound on the Rickenbacker Causeway when, for an unknown reason, it lost two, 200-pound tires.One landed inside of a parking lot, in the westbound lanes, while the second tire bounced into the eastbound lane, hitting the runners, who are engaged. The tractor-trailer eventually stopped as it was about to exit the Rickenbacker Causeway.Stephanie Hilzinger was knocked unconscious, and her fiancé, Fernando Muñoz, who happens to be a dentist who specializes in anesthesiology, suffered minor injuries. Despite his injuries, he immediately jumped to her aid and administered CPR.“Her fiancé, who we understand is a doctor, was also struck,” said Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll Jr. “When he came around, he saw her on the ground, not moving. That’s when he quickly stepped into action. Obviously, her fiancé being a doctor, being able to jump into action and perform life-saving efforts definitely helped her a whole lot.”Hilzinger was transported by ground to Ryder Trauma Center where she remains in critical but stable condition.The driver of the tractor-trailer said he did not know how or why his tires went flying across traffic. “I didn’t know,” said the driver. “I was coming from over there, and a lady came up to me saying I had a problem with the tire and that I hit a lady over there.” last_img read more

Department of Health announces increase of Mumps cases in Florida

first_imgTALLAHASSEE, FLA. (WSVN) – The Department of Health has announced an increase in the amount of Mumps cases in Florida.According to the Department of Health, there were three reported probable cases of mumps in the state in November. A fourth case was confirmed.“In Florida, the number of reported mumps cases has remained relatively low over the past five years but started to increase in 2015 with ten cases and in 2016 with 16 cases,” the agency posted on its website. “The last time the number of reported cases reached 2017 levels was in the 1990s.”Since January, the Department says 17 confirmed cases and 37 probable cases have been reported statewide.The department said vaccination is the best way to prevent the disease, which is caused by a virus. Mumps starts with a fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite, and swelling of the salivary glands.“Although individuals who have been vaccinated can still get mumps, vaccination remains the best way to prevent mumps and severe complications,” said the department’s deputy press secretary Brad Dalton. “In general, those who have received at least one mumps vaccination even if they later develop disease have less severe outcomes than those who have never been vaccinated.Individuals should be vaccinated with the MMR, or mumps, measles, rubella combination vaccine. “There has been more than 99% decrease in mumps cases in the US since the pre-vaccine era,” the department said.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Bird Lyft and Skip glitch lets scooters exceed 20 mph report says

first_img 0 3:07 Uscooter Electric Scooter Scooters Electric scooters are sending scores of people to the… Now playing: Watch this: Preview • The best folding electric scooter you can buycenter_img Share your voice Tags A glitch is reportedly allowing e-scooters to push past speed limits.  James Martin A glitch in an e-scooter model used by companies including Lyft and Bird is reportedly causing it to exceed local speed limits, according to a Friday report.  The Ninebot KickScooter, which is manufactured by Segway, went up to 21 miles per hour in a test conducted by Consumer Reports. The issue was raised earlier in a post on the forum ScooterTalk. Most cities have rules that restrict scooters from going more than 15 miles per hour. Several scooters from Bird, Lyft and Skip that were rented in Washington, DC, achieved those speeds, according to the report. Activating the glitch “involves taking a few steps with the rear brake and the throttle,” Consumer Reports says. The glitch reportedly didn’t happen on Ninebot KickScooters from Spin, which is owned by Ford, and Jump, which is owned by Uber.  “Safety is fundamental to Lyft and our team is investigating this report,” a Lyft representative said. Skip said it’s actively investigating the issue, and that its team is always working to maintain high safety standards for its customers. “At this time, we are not seeing a fleet-wide issue as it pertains to acceleration,” a Skip representative said in an emailed statement late Friday. “We encourage riders experiencing acceleration issues to contact our support team.” Bird didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Electric scooters, which in the last year or so have become available in nearly 100 US cities, are responsible for as many as 1,000 accidents per month. Riders have ended up in the emergency room after discovering their brakes didn’t work or speeding into oncoming traffic. Some have been killed in e-scooter accidents, and hospitals around the country report daily injuries, some of which are life-threatening or leave people permanently disabled.  First published at 3:09 p.m. PT on June 7.   Updated at 4:45 p.m. PT: Adds comment from Skip.

Kabul suicide attack kills 63 injures 182 amid Afghan peace talks

first_imgAn Afghan worker is seen at the wedding hall after a blast in Kabul, Afghanistan August 18, 2019.ReutersA suicide bomber killed 63 people and wounded 182 in an attack on a packed wedding reception in the Afghan capital on Saturday night, the interior ministry said, as violence shows no sign of easing despite hopes for a deal on a US troop withdrawal.The attack came as the Taliban and the United States are trying to negotiate an agreement on the withdrawal of US forces in exchange for a Taliban commitment on security and peace talks with Afghanistan’s US-backed government.The Taliban denied responsibility for the blast at a west Kabul wedding hall, in a minority Shi’ite neighbourhood, packed with people celebrating a marriage.Women and children were among the casualties, interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said on Sunday.The blast follows a bomb attack on a mosque in Pakistan on Friday that killed a brother of Taliban leader Haibatullah Akhundzada. No one claimed responsibility for that blast, which killed four people and wounded about 20.Pictures posted on social media showed bodies strewn amid overturned table and chairs at the wedding hall, with dark blood stains on the carpet. The bomber struck the men’s reception area, officials said.”Everybody was running,” a waiter at the hall, Sayed Agha Shah, said after the blast.”Several of our waiters were killed and wounded.”Resident Mohammad Hasan rushed to the scene after the blast rocked the neighbourhood.”I saw many women and children screaming and crying,” he said.Wedding halls have become a big business in Kabul as the Afghan economy slowly picks up and families spend more on celebrations. Big, brightly lit halls now line some suburban streets of the city.At least 40 people were killed in an explosion at a wedding hall in Kabul in November.Two Taliban spokesman issued statements to deny responsibility for the Saturday night blast.Islamic State militants also operate in Afghanistan and have carried out bloody attacks in towns and cities, some aimed at members of the Shi’ite minority.BLOODSHED AND TALKSThere has been no let-up in fighting and bomb attacks in Afghanistan over recent months despite the talks between the United States and the Taliban since late last year.The Taliban have been fighting to expel foreign forces and re-establish an Islamic state since they were ousted in October 2001, weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.Both US negotiators and the Taliban have reported progress after eight rounds of talks since late last year.Afghan Taliban officials said on Saturday the killing of the brother of their leader in a bomb attack near the Pakistani city of Quetta would not derail the talks with the United States aimed at securing their long-cherished goal of getting foreign troops out.Taliban negotiators were preparing for the next round of talks, hoping to resolve the last outstanding differences, the officials said. No date for a new round has been set.US President Donald Trump has made no secret of his desire for a US pullout from Afghanistan and an end to America’s longest war. Top US national security advisers briefed Trump on Friday on the negotiations.There are deep concerns among Afghan officials and US national security aides about the talks with fears Afghanistan could plunge into a new civil war that could see a return of Taliban rule and international militants finding a sanctuary.Under the expected deal, the Taliban, in exchange for a US commitment on a withdrawal, would guarantee Afghanistan would not be a sanctuary for militants to expand and plot new attacks, both sides have said.The Taliban are also expected to make a commitment to open power-sharing talks with the US-backed government and agree to a ceasefire.Some 14,000 US troops remain in Afghanistan, training and advising Afghan security forces and conducting counterinsurgency operations.The war has ground into a stalemate with casualties rising among civilians as well as combatants.last_img read more

Colins NFL Week 5 Blazin 5

first_img3. Vikings (+3) at Eagles – Carson Wentz may be back, but Colin is rolling with the Vikings getting 3 on the road against the defending Super Bowl champs. Philly is only averaging 20.8 PPG on offense this year (T-26th – NFL), and they’ll need to put up points against Kirk Cousins, who’s been a monster at Lincoln Financial.In his career at the Linc, Cousins is completing 67.1% of his passes for 332.3 YPG, 12 TD’s, 3 INT’s, and a passer rating of 112.0. Take Minny, the field goal, and outright. 24-23, Vikings. 2. Raiders (+5.5) at Chargers – Colin likes the Raiders getting 5.5 in what will essentially be home game facing the Chargers in L.A. Jon Gruden only has one win so far, but his offense is humming. Oakland ranks second in Total Offense (441.8 Total YPG)They should move the ball at will on a Chargers defense – minus Joey Bosa – that’s allowing 30.0 PPG (28th – NFL), and has given up 32 plays of 20+ yards on the year (T-3rd most). Take the Raiders, the points, and outright. 27-24, Oakland. Advertisement Colin’s Blazin’ 5 picks pushed in Week 4, going 2-2-1, but he’s still a solid 12-7-1 heading into Week 5, and is ready to bounce back with a big week and more stacks of cash. Shooters shoot and bettors bet. It’s time to get hot again.Here are Colin’s Week 5  Blazin’ 5 plays:Broncos vs. Jets (-1.5) – Colin likes Sam Darnold and the Jets laying 1.5 at home over the Broncos coming off a short week, and the number is down to a pick ’em in some places. The Jets are rebuilding, but their defense has 10 takeaways and ranks 6th in the NFL in Yards Per Play (5.2).Denver has been abysmal in early Sunday games, going 0-6, with a -7 turnover differential, while putting up a pathetic 13.8 PPG, and allowing an eye-popping 29.8 PPG defensively in their last 6 1 PM starts. Jets bounce back from a bad performance with their best game of the year. 26-21, New York.center_img 4. Cardinals (+5.5) at Niners – Take the Cardinals as a 5.5 point road dog in San Fran in maybe the one game this year they’ll have the QB advantage. The Niners are 1-11 in their last 12 games Jimmy G hasn’t played in, and Arizona has lost their last two games by a total of only 5 points.Josh Rosen was impressive in his first career action in Week 4, guiding the Cardinal offense to season highs in Points, Total Yards, Pass Yards, and Rush Yards. Take the better team, the better QB and the points. 27-26, Arizona gets the win. 5. Redskins (+6.5) at Saints (MNF) – Colin loves Washington, off a bye, getting points on the road against New Orleans. The Redskins have the NFL’s 6th ranked rushing offense (137.7 YPG), and an underrated defense that ranks 2nd in PPG Allowed (14.7), 3rd in Total YPG Allowed (278.0), Pass Defense (187.3 YPG), and Opposing QB Passer Rating (77.0).Alex Smith should be able to carve up a Saints D that ranks 29th in PPG Allowed (30.3), Pass Defense (311.0 YPG), and 25th in 3rd Down Conversion % Allowed (45.7). Take the rested Redskins, the points, and outright. 28-27, Washington.last_img read more
