The talent management company WME/IMG says it has acquired The Miss Universe Organization from Donald Trump. The announcement on Monday, Sept. 14, comes on the heels of Trump’s announcement last week that he bought out NBCUniversal’s interest in the property, which includes the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants.

No Drugs or Alcohol Found in Junior Seaus System

There was no alcohol or drugs found in Junior Seau’s system when he shot and killed himself at his home in May, according to the autopsy report released by the San Diego County Medical’s Examiner’s Office on Monday.The girlfriend of the former NFL All-Pro linebacker found his body with a single gunshot wound to the chest.The 16-page report stated that the body of the former NFL All-Pro linebacker was found to have Zolpidem, which is often found in the sleeping aid Ambien, and traces of the anti-inflammatory drug Naproxen. All of the substances were deemed “consistent with therapeutic use,” wrote Deputy Medical Examiner Craig Nelson.Perhaps even more mysterious was that the autopsy found Seau’s brain to be normal with no underlying hemorrhaging or contusions. His family has donated some of his brain tissue for research following widespread concerns over whether his 20-year professional football career played some kind of factor in his death.Questions now remain as to why Seau, 43, chose to kill himself on May 2 at his suburban Oceanside, California home. No suicide note was ever found and friends and family have insisted that Seau never appeared distraught or depressed.Police investigators said Seau killed himself with an unregistered .357 caliber revolver that had five hollow-point bullets inside. Authorities also found his cell phone lying on his bed, although it was missing its memory chip.Seau, a former USC All-American, was the fifth overall pick of the 1990 NFL Draft and went on to become a 12-time Pro Bowler in the NFL.He sustained minor injuries in October 2010 when his SUV plunged down a 100-foot cliff, just hours after he’d been arrested for domestic violence following an incident between him and his girlfriend. Seau later insisted that he was never suicidal, but that he’d instead fallen asleep at the wheel. He was never charged in the domestic incident. read more

Teammates making life easy for freshman goalkeeper

With a true freshman playing in goal for the Ohio State women’s soccer team (8-2-1, 2-0-0), an experienced defense and ‘no-shots’ approach has propelled the Buckeyes to the top of the Big Ten standings. Goalkeeper Rachel Middleman currently ranks second in the Big Ten in goals against average, letting in only .33 percent of shots. According to head coach Lori Walker, it’s the play of the defense in front of Middleman that has helped make the transition to collegiate ball trouble-free for the true freshman. “They’ve got a strong no-shot mentality and I think that helps make Rachel’s job a lot easier as a freshman,” Walker said. “I know that the saves that we’re going to ask her to make are going to either be simple saves or game-winning saves. There’s not going to be that kind of in-between thing where we really need to lean on her to be a difference-maker at this point, which is what you want from your freshmen.” The Buckeye defense is led by a trio of senior captains Cassie Dickerson, Lauren Beachy, and Danielle Scoliere. “Our defense is old and mature and we’ve played together for three years, so I just think we really know each other well,” Beachy said. “We have a ton of chemistry and stress a no-shot mentality. We just play together as hard as we can and we know what works for us.” That no-shot mentality has put the Buckeyes at the top of most Big Ten statistical categories, including goals allowed where they rank second with six, and goals against per game average where they rank third with .53. Of the Buckeye’s 11 games, six of them have been shutouts and only once have they given up more than one goal in a game. “That’s the biggest thing that we can contribute to the game, our hard work and our tough defense,” Dickerson said. “If we can shut them down, that gives our forwards a much greater chance. Usually the margin in the Big Ten wins is by a goal each game. We’re not going to win 3-0 or 4-0, it’s always going to be 1-0 or 2-1, so if we do our job it gives us a great chance to win.” Dickerson is a three-time captain for the Buckeyes and the second player in Ohio State women’s soccer history to be named to the Hermann Trophy watch list. The Hermann Trophy is awarded each season to the top male and female players in college soccer. “It’s something that I carry on my shoulders and take pride in,” Dickerson said. “It’s an honor to be a captain, so it’s just something that just comes out of me naturally and I think that when you have people who are willing to follow, it’s an easy role to do.” According to Beachy, help from the team’s offense has been a welcome addition this season. “Our offense is really clicking and that hasn’t always happened,” Beachy said. “As long as we keep those shutouts coming, I think that we always have a really good chance.” Both of the OSU’s Big Ten wins this season have come in shutouts, including a 2-0 win over Michigan and 1-0 overtime win against Penn State. The Buckeyes know that they’ll need to keep up their strong defensive pace to have success through the rest of the Big Ten schedule. “Our defense knows that a mistake that they make could really cost us and so while we don’t ask them to play perfect games, they do a great job of minimizing what those mistakes are that they make,” Walker said. “There’s a nice confidence and a nice aura about our backline, and so it’s just kind of contagious. So when they do make a mistake, they carry that weight and don’t just place it on one individual.” read more

Flat where Westminster terrorist spent final months preparing for attack had picture

first_imgThe picture, which includes a City of Westminster sign, shows streets just a mile from the atrocity on the bridge, which claimed five lives.Masood is understood to have moved into the room, which is rented for £450-a-month, last December.For the first week he made repeated demands for the internet to be fixed and seemed “desperate” to get online, according to his flat mate.Ilyas Ilkgun, 26, told the Mirror he had been shocked to find he had lived next to a terrorirst for three months. He added that he may have got inspiration for the horrific tragedy from the picture of a London street that hung in their communal living room. He vanished from the flat three days before his attack in Westminster.Ilkgun said Masood would spend hours lifting weights, never had any visitors during his three months in the flat, and was obsessed with having internet access in the flat.

The way he lived wasn’t healthy, he never saw daylight and he never went outside,” he said.“He couldn’t find any reason to hold on to life.”Masood also reportedly owed hundreds of pounds to the taxman and was being chased by HMRC at the time of his death.His flatmates told the Mirror that Masood, who was then unemployed, was paying HMRC £100 a month over an unpaid tax bill.They also claimed the terrorist would deliberately lock them out of the flat by bolting the front door.center_img  Inside the flat and shared residence at 165 Hagley Road, Birmingham of Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood Khalid Masood  Khalid Masood Credit:AFP Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Anglo American partners with ASI on autonomous haulage development

first_imgFacing challenges such as lower commodity prices, declining grades of ore deposits, and difficulty of access to ore bodies, the mining industry “needs to leap forward 20 years in five,” said Tony O’Neill, Anglo American’s Group Director for Technical and Sustainability, at the Dassault Systemes 3DExperience Forum in November 2014. To help drive this innovation, Anglo American is working with ASI automation engineers to create fully autonomous, teleoperated, and remote control haulage operations. “Anglo American is at the forefront of innovation in the mining industry and they have been the ideal partner in creating disruptive mining solutions,” said President and CEO of ASI, Mel Torrie. As Anglo American’s OEM-independent automation partner, ASI leverages more than 14 years of experience developing robotic solutions for the mining, farming, automotive, industrial, and military industries. Development and testing of the autonomous mining systems have already commenced with active field trials with Anglo American and at ASI’s new 100 acre mining proving ground in northern Utah. Representatives from Anglo American recently announced their partnership with Autonomous Solutions, Inc (ASI). The goal of the multi-year relationship is to deliver enhanced productivity, sustainability, and safety through mining vehicle automation systems for the company’s haulage operations.  The joint effort is part of Anglo American’s FutureSmart initiative through which the company is partnering with third party technology groups like ASI to drive innovation within the mining industry.last_img read more

ExTrump manager Manafort to plead guilty to conspiracy charges

first_imgUS president Donald Trump`s former campaign chief Paul Manafort, arriving for a hearing at US district court in Washington, DC. Manafort has agreed to plead guilty to charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States and witness tampering, court documents indicated on 14 September. Photo: AFPUS president Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to plead guilty to two criminal counts as part of a deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, court documents showed on Friday in what could be a blow to Trump in the long-running investigation of Russian election influence.As part of the deal, Manafort, 69, could be required to cooperate with Mueller’s probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election and whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.Details of the deal were likely to emerge in a plea agreement hearing scheduled for 11:00am ET (1500 GMT) in the federal court.Manafort will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to documents filed in the US district court for the District of Columbia. Five other charges were dropped in the new court filing.A Virginia jury convicted Manafort last month on bank and tax fraud charges.Jury selection was due to begin on Monday in a second trial on charges including conspiring to launder money, conspiring to defraud the United States, failing to register as a foreign agent and witness tampering.Manafort’s decision could be a blow to Trump, who last month praised his former aide for not entering into an agreement with prosecutors, as the president’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen had.Writing on Twitter on 22 August, Trump said, “Unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to ‘break’ – make up stories in order to get a ‘deal. Such respect for a brave man!”According to the court filing, the change of conspiracy against the United States includes money laundering, tax fraud, failing to disclose his foreign bank accounts, and acting as an unregistered lobbyist for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. The second count, for conspiracy to obstruct justice, relates to attempts to tamper with witnesses related to his foreign lobbying.last_img

Personal Travel Managers Achieve Bucket List Experiences in China

first_imgBecause climbing a section of China’s Great Wall isn’t already enough of a workout, TravelManagers’ Lillie Smith, Lisa McCowan, Kerrie Baguley, Julie Painter, Samantha Temple, Kelly Jenkins (back row), along with Sharon Wright, Elly Eves (front row) try out their best tree and warrior poses, while Michelle Schulze, Lisa Leary opt for downward-facing dog.Personal Travel Managers Achieve Bucket List Experiences in ChinaThe Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Warriors at Xian, strolling the Bund in Shanghai: for eight of TravelManagers’ personal travel managers (PTMs), a nine-day itinerary delivered all these bucket list items, and more, on a recent famil to China hosted by On the Go Tours.The group flew to Beijing with China Eastern Airlines in June, and spent their first night in the capital city before embarking on a familiarization tour of the city that took them to from the grandeur of Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City to the traditional hutongs (neighbourhoods) for a rickshaw tour. The day concluded with a display of traditional but mind-boggling Chinese acrobatics and a dinner of Peking Duck.Bike Riding in Xi’AnFrom Beijing, the group departed on a tour that took in several sections of the Great Wall and the city of Xi’an, finishing in Shanghai where the most modern and ancient facets of China come together.For most of the PTMs, this was their first opportunity to experience China for themselves. Kelly Jenkins, representative for Winston Hills, NSW, says the visit has given her the confidence to offer advice and make recommendations to her clients.“I went with few expectations as I didn’t know what to expect, and I was so pleasantly surprised by China as a country. Everything was so much cleaner and less busy than I expected,” she says. “Now I can definitely help my clients experience it all for themselves.”TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, says the company strives to ensure as many PTMs as possible are able to update and extend their product information by participating in famils. In this case the famil, which was exclusive to TravelManagers, was a chance for PTMs who had not previously visited China to benefit from experiencing On the Go Tours’ product.Taking a well-earned break atop the Great Wall are TravelManagers’ Elly Eves, Michelle Schulze, Lisa Leary and Kerrie Baguley (standing), plus(sitting) Lillie Smith, Sharon Wright, Julie Painter, Samantha Temple (sitting), and Kelly Jenkins (in front)“We identified PTMs who have the clientele and/or specialist-type niche to be able to sell it in the future,” Gazal explains.For Lillie Smith, representative for Toowong, QLD, it was easy to identify the biggest highlight of her trip.“The Terracotta Warriors have always been on my list of things to see, and definitely didn’t disappoint – I was in awe.”Smith believes that she will be much better able to meet her clients’ needs, now that she has experience China for herself.“I find it trickier to sell a destination that I haven’t visited personally; now that I’ve ‘been there, done that’, I will be able to tell my clients what to expect and what experiences and activities would suit their abilities, expectations and requirements,” she explains.Sam Temple, representative for Sandy Bay, TAS, agrees with this point of view: “actually being there makes a world of difference to be able to sell it to my clients. I’ve also learnt that it’s a good idea to experience China as part of an organized group… or even better, pay for a guide for the duration of your stay – it’s worth every cent.”The group flew from Australia with China Eastern Airlines, which was another new but welcome experience for the participants, giving them the opportunity to experience first-hand their check-in procedures, aircraft seating/comfort and in-flight meals and service.Gazal says it’s this level of personal experience and expertise that gives TravelManagers’ PTMs the confidence and knowledge to provide superior service to their clients.“Being able to recommend restaurants that offer fantastic food at great prices; the best place to find a coffee; whether they need to book a private transfer when they first arrive; what the public transport is like; it’s these little details that make the biggest difference to our clients’ travel experience.”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.About TravelManagersTravel Managers operates in all Australian States and is a wholly owned subsidiary of House of Travel, Australasia’s largest independent travel company which has a forecast turnover of $1.5 billion for 2017.

This agreement will bring more competition and cheaper flights to the US.”Experts have tipped the new free market in transatlantic flights as a major challenge for British Airways (BA), with the airline currently drawing some 65 per cent of its profits from Heathrow-New York flights, a route it has so far shared with only three rival airlines.Continental has paid £100 million for four Heathrow landing slots and the right to compete with BA, while Northwest Airlines is opening routes out of London to Minneapolis, Detroit and Seattle.BA could however take advantage of the new regulations itself and expand outside of its Heathrow base to provide transatlantic flights from other EU states, a trend already initiated by Air France’s new Heathrow-LA route.The French flag carrier has moved into BA’s former Terminal 4 base, while its British counterpart struggles with baggage handling problems and flight cancellations at its new Terminal 5 home.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

first_imgFollowing a European directive calling for improved quality, safety and coordination between blood donation facilities, the health ministry is beginning an overhaul of the system with the introduction of a central blood unit.Beginning soon, the blood centre will begin coordinating with Famagusta general hospital’s blood bank with regard to donations, processing, quality control and screening for infections.According to the ministry, starting in a couple of months until the end of September, the centre is expected to update the coordination process in all the other blood banks before finally assuming responsibility for all donations throughout the island.The government believes the changes will safeguard the quality and safety of donated blood, bringing it up to ISO 9001 standard.A number of incidents were reported in the past where blood supplies were lower over holiday periods, or where the wrong blood type was sent to surgeries for operations.The original deadline for implementation of the changes to the system was the end of last year but the European Commission gave Cyprus an extension until February 9.Cyprus needs more than 70,000 units of blood per year, corresponding to approximately 300 donors per day. Cypriot citizens have demonstrated their social sensitivity to blood issues, placing the island in first position among EU peers, in donors per population.All involved are expected to embrace this effort, contributing to the efficiency and the quality of blood in the country.You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
