Jacob Badger denies shotgun shooting

A man standing trial for attempted murder told the court he had nothing to do with a shotgun shooting last year that caused a gruesome injury to a man.Jacob Charles Badger, 26, took the stand on Tuesday at his trial at Regina Provincial Court, stating he hadn’t so much as handled a gun for as much as a year prior to the incident.During the Crown’s case, which began last month, court heard emergency crews responded to a 9-1-1 call from the shooting victim’s mother shortly after 3:20 a.m. on April 10, 2018.The 32-year-old complainant had been the victim of a shotgun blast. The man reported two masked men — one armed with a double-barrelled shotgun — turned up at the door of his house on the 1900 block of Winnipeg Street.The complainant sustained a number of buckshot wounds to his chest and legs, but the most significant injury was to his right hand, inflicted when he grabbed the gun.In a case resting solely on the issue of identity, the complainant’s testimony provided little assistance. He told the court he was too drunk to recall the key parts of the incident.But other evidence heard at trial suggested otherwise. During the 9-1-1 call, a voice reportedly belonging to the complainant is heard replying, “Jake from State Farm,” after his mother asked who shot him. Court heard “Jake from State Farm” is a nickname for Badger.Police witnesses also testified on the identity issue, two officers telling the court the complainant identified Badger as “the guy who shot me” when he caught sight of Badger at the scene. At the time, Badger was already in police custody — a fact his defence lawyer Tyne Hagey suggested might have influenced the complainant’s identification.Badger told the court he spent the hours before the shooting back and forth between the Winnipeg Street house and his own, approximately two blocks away. He said he was a daily user of crystal meth and morphine at the time and was injecting morphine with a friend at the Winnipeg Street house.He said he left for home at about 3 a.m. and was shocked to receive a message from the complainant’s brother telling him about the shooting.“I didn’t believe him because I just left from there …,” Badger said. “I wanted to go over there to see if (the complainant) was okay.”He said he returned to the Winnipeg Street house and was promptly arrested.Badger said he had no bad blood with the complainant and denied even being at the house when the man was shot.Under cross-examination, he refuted what police said they heard, claiming the complainant had actually looked at Badger and said, “Your bro shot me.”Badger added he hadn’t handled a gun since 2017, although court heard “particles characteristic of gunshot residue” were found on his hands.Hagey had considered calling several other witnesses on her client’s behalf, but they weren’t at court when the time came to call them.Both sides having now closed their cases, closing arguments were set for Sept. 24.hpolischuk@postmedia.comtwitter.com/LPHeatherP read more

Regina police officer charged with impaired driving fleeing scene of crash

A nine-year member of the Regina Police Service (RPS) has been put on administrative leave after being charged with impaired driving and fleeing the scene of a collision.Const. Scott Shane Ash, 35, has been charged with impaired operation of a conveyance, exceed .08 and failure to stop after an accident.According to an RPS news release, a two-vehicle collision happened at approximately 10 p.m. on Wednesday in the area of Lewvan Drive and Harbour Landing Drive. No injuries were reported.RPS members were dispatched to the scene and discovered one of the vehicles involved had driven away. Senior members conducted an investigation that led to Ash’s arrest. Police said he was not on duty at the time of the collision.“Regardless of whether you’re a police member or you’re a member of the public, we hold people accountable for their actions. At the Regina Police Service, we don’t condone what happened with Const. Ash, but in the same respect, when these things do happen we recognize that everybody is human and they do make mistakes,” said RPS Acting Chief Dean Rae.“You can rest assured that Const. Ash will be held accountable for his actions both through the criminal investigation as well as through the Police Act investigation.”In 2013, Ash was one of 18 officers who won an RPS award for exceptional investigative work in solving a serious hit and run.Ash has been placed on administrative leave with pay for the immediate future. Rae said the criminal investigation takes priority, but the RPS’s professional standards unit is also conducting an administrative investigation into the incident under the Police Act. The administrative investigation will conclude only after Ash’s criminal charges have been dealt with.“It’s not something that’s acceptable for us as an organization, it’s not something that’s acceptable for us as a community, so when these things do happen we’re going to do our best to conduct an objective investigation and be professional in our conduct when we do so,” said Rae.Ash is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 10.— With files from Mark Melnychuk read more

Recent killings in western Mosul indicative of rising war crimes against civilians

In a news release today, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) – which has been documenting alleged human rights violations and abuses since the start of the military operations to retake Mosul – said that recent reports suggest a “significant escalation” in atrocities against civilians. “Shooting children as they try to run to safety with their families – there are no words of condemnation strong enough for such despicable acts,” Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said in the release. “I call on the Iraqi authorities to ensure that those who are responsible for these horrors are held accountable and brought to justice in line with international human rights laws and standards.” In the most gruesome incident, last Thursday (1 June), ISIL reportedly shot and killed at least 163 civilians, including women, men and children, next to a Pepsi factory in the in al-Shifa neighbourhood. Their bodies were reportedly left on the street for several days following the killings. An undetermined number of civilians were also reported missing. Those killed and missing were fleeing clashes between ISIL and the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF). In the same neighbourhood, at least 27 people, including 14 women and five children were reportedly killed by ISIL on 26 May, and at least 41 others on 3 June. Further in the release, referring to reports of civilian casualties due to recent air strikes in an ISIL-held area of western Mosul, OHCHR called on the ISF and their coalition partners to ensure that their operations comply fully with international humanitarian law and that all possible measures are taken to avoid the loss of civilian lives. An air strike on 31 May in Zanjilly (an ISIL-held area of western Mosul) reportedly resulted between 50 and 80 civilian deaths, the news release added, noting that High Commissioner Zeid “urged Iraqi authorities to ensure that any allegations of human rights violations committed by the ISF are also fully investigated and those responsible held accountable.” read more

From keeping the world’s eyes on this institution and its failure to protect children, it’s been a great success,” he said.The meeting has been marked by soul-seeking and self-recrimination by the Church, and horror stories from abuse victims.With reporting by AFP Sunday 24 Feb 2019, 3:15 PMlast_img read more

Facebook Google to pay up over political ad rules in Washington state

first_img Comment Tags Share your voice Facebook Google Tech Industry Digital Media Politics Internet Services 1 Google and Facebook will have to pay up to settle campaign finance lawsuits in the state of Washington. Getty Images Google and Facebook will pay over $450,000 to settle lawsuits over campaign finance rules in Washington state. Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson on Tuesday said Google will pay $217,000 and Facebook will pay $238,000 to settle cases alleging the companies failed to maintain legally required information for political advertisements placed on their platforms since 2013. “Whether you are a small-town newspaper or a large corporation, Washington’s political advertising disclosure laws apply to everyone,” Ferguson said in a release.Ferguson in June filed campaign finance lawsuits against the tech giants. Washington state requires platforms to maintain information about who purchased political advertising services and to make that information available to the public. The lawsuit alleged Google and Facebook didn’t obtain, maintain or provide such information.The companies reportedly admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement.”We operated in compliance with local Washington laws until the state introduced new requirements under its campaign disclosure law in June. At that point, we paused accepting election advertising in Washington because our systems weren’t built to comply with these new requirements,” a Google spokesperson said in an email. “We’ve rolled out several features this year to ensure transparency in U.S. federal elections and we are looking at ways to bring these tools to the state level as well.”Washington state political candidates and committees spent $5.1 million on Facebook and $1.5 million on Google for advertising-related services in the past decade, according to the state Public Disclosure Commission. In response to Russian interference in US elections, Facebook in 2017 rolled out new rules for advertisers in order to promote transparency on its platform. Political ads have to be verified and identified as political. In May, Google also introduced stricter rules on election ads. Advertisers have to verify they’re US citizens or lawful permanent resident in order to place political ads on Google. In June, Google paused accepting political ads in Washington in response to the lawsuit. In June, Facebook also added a “Paid for by” disclosure label on top of political ads. If you click on the label, you’ll be taken to a page where you can see how much money was spent on this ad and how many people saw the ad. A breakdown of the audience’s age, gender and location is shown as well. “We’re pleased that the matter with the Attorney General’s office is resolved,” said Beth Gautier, a Facebook spokesperson, in an email statement. “We believe all ads should be transparent on Facebook and aren’t waiting for legislation to authorize political advertisers and house these ads in a public archive. Given the recent Washington State Public Disclosure Commission ruling, we’re looking at how best to address its new disclosure requirements.”Facebook on Thursday planned to halt the sales of political ads in Washington State by the end of the year, said Gautier.First published on Dec. 19, 11:47 a.m. PT.Updates, 12:50 p.m. PT: Adds Google and Facebook statements. Updates on Dec. 20, 10:03 a.m. PT: Adds Facebook plans to stop sales of political ads in WA. last_img read more

Walker proposes Permanent Fund overhaul to cover deficit

first_imgGovernor Bill Walker will propose a complete overhaul of the way Alaska uses the Permanent Fund when he releases his budget later this year. The plan would turn the state’s various savings accounts into a kind of endowment, using their earnings to fund state operations.Download AudioLawmakers, including Senate President Kevin Meyer, gather for a briefing on the governor’s proposal. Photo: Rachel Waldholz/APRN.The governor’s goal is to shift the state from a reliance on oil revenue to a reliance on the earnings of its massive reserve funds, an idea the administration is comparing to the sovereign wealth funds used in oil-dependent states like Norway.The administration held a noon briefing Wednesday, Oct. 28 in Juneau’s Centennial Hall for lawmakers who are gathered for a special session on the Alaska LNG gas line.(You can find Attorney General Craig Richard’s presentation here, and the administration report here.) Speaking with reporters Wednesday morning, Attorney General Craig Richards said the goal is to stabilize state finances in the face of wild swings in oil prices.“You want to get to a point where you have a stable economy that doesn’t ride the boom and bust cycles of the oil markets,” he said.Gov. Walker appointed Richards to the Alaska Permanent Fund Corp. board earlier this week.Currently the state’s budget for day-to-day operations relies largely on revenue from oil taxes, and the drop in oil prices has created a deficit of about $3 billion.The governor’s plan would send oil taxes into the Permanent Fund, instead. His team then believes the state can pull about $3.3 billion a year from the fund’s earnings reserve, without depleting the fund itself.The plan would allow the state to avoid drastic cuts in services, though in its current form it would also likely reduce PFD checks.Richards stressed that the changes should be made as soon as possible — preferably during the regular legislative session this spring.“If we take a couple of years and do this, we’re burning down our assets. We’re spending the money we need to make the sovereign wealth model work,” he said. “So if we don’t get this in place pretty quickly, it’s going to have to look different and a lot less effective.”The proposal would also change the way dividends are distributed — instead of coming out of Permanent Fund earnings, dividends would be pulled from oil and gas royalties. Richards estimated that under this system, next year’s PFD would be about $1,000.Richards said the changes could be accomplished through legislation, without the need for any constitutional amendments.Many lawmakers are open to the idea.Senate President Kevin Meyer, an Anchorage Republican, called the proposal “a good first start.” He said it resembles a Senate bill introduced this spring, though the Senate version would devote more revenue to dividends. “Absolutely. This concept, one of our bills, a combination of his concept and our Senate Bill 114, is very doable,” Meyer said. “As long as we get cooperation from the governor, the minority in getting the budget reductions that we want to get.”That could be a big “if.” Meyer said he is seeking another $500-million in cuts before the legislature takes up the governor’s proposal, or any other changes to revenue. That number is higher than what the governor or minority democrats have said they can accept.Minority leader Chris Tuck, an Anchorage Democrat, said in general he likes the “endowment” concept, but needs more details on this particular plan. And then, he says, the governor has to convince Alaskans.  “The concern of course is, is using the permanent fund to pay for government services, which may not be that popular,” he said.The administration stressed that the plan right now is in draft form — and subject to revision. The final version will be included in the governor’s formal budget proposal this winter.That will then go to lawmakers for debate during the legislative session starting in January.last_img read more

The state’s internet and cellphones remained blocked, however.In addition, many of the region’s urban areas remained in lockdown, and more than 500 political or community leaders and activists remained in detention, some of them having been flown to prisons outside the state.Six men from Srinagar’s Soura and Chadoora districts who were injured by pellets fired by security forces were treated on Saturday afternoon at the Sri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital, two hospital officials said on condition of anonymity.A spokesman said the hospital was “collecting information on the injuries”.Among the victims was Gulam Rasool, who runs a shawl shop in the Alikadal area and was stepping out of his home when paramilitary troops hit him with at least 20 pellets, according to his son Naseer Ahmed, sitting by his father’s hospital bed.Rasool lay staring at the ceiling in a blue ‘kurta’ shirt stained with blood.In the Bemina area of Srinagar, at least a dozen witnesses said police and paramilitary officials had raided several homes on Friday afternoon, picking up at least six men and damaging houses with stones and rods.Some people close to the area had hurled stones at security forces earlier in the day, the witnesses said.Damage and Arrests Shahida, 25, said her husband Riyaz Ahmad Dar had been having tea on the first floor of their home when at least 15 police and paramilitary officials forced their way in, smashing ground floor windows and arresting her husband and his cousin.In tears, she said her two-month-old son had been sleeping on the carpeted floor close to the window. “I grabbed him, but they beat my husband ruthlessly,” she said. “They sell crockery items – they are not stone pelters.”A woman weeps inside her house after her household goods were allegedly damaged by Indian security forces following clashes between protesters and the security forces on Friday evening, during restrictions after the scrapping of the special constitutional status for Kashmir by the government, in Srinagar, on 17 August 2019. Photo: ReutersEighteen-year-old Simran Shahnawaz had a bandage on her toe where she said a police officer had hit her with an iron rod.Her family pointed to broken cupboards and a shattered LCD screen, which they said had been smashed in the raid. “I can’t even tell you the kind of insults they hurled at us,” Shahnawaz said.India has been fighting a revolt for 30 years in the part of Kashmir it controls, in which at least 50,000 people have been killed. Critics say the decision to revoke autonomy will cause further alienation and fuel the armed resistance.The change will allow non-residents to buy property in Jammu and Kashmir, and end the practice of reserving state government jobs for local residents.Prime minister Narendra Modi’s government has said the measure is necessary to integrate Kashmir fully into India and speed up its development.The move has raised tensions on the heavily militarised border between the Indian- and Pakistani-controlled parts of Kashmir.An Indian soldier was killed in cross-border firing on Saturday, according to a report from Reuters’ partner agency, ANI. The Pakistan military had said three of its soldiers had been killed on the border earlier in the week.last_img read more

6 unbelievable hotels with surprising extras

These are subject to change and were correct at time of writing on 28 May 2019. 5. Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort, Turkey – fly from £89 Fly to Madeira from £70 ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map 6. Pestana Bay Ocean Aparthotel, Madeira – fly from £70 Found your dream hotel? It’s time to book your flights. Search for your destination below: We’ve all come back from holidays having spent a whole lot more than we originally intended or could really afford. If you’re determined to do better next time, it helps to book the kind of hotel where meals and activities are included in the price, so you can keep unexpected extras to a minimum. We’ve found six places that fit the bill perfectly… If you’re travelling with young children in tow, they’re going to be happy little bunnies at this newly opened family-friendly resort on the south coast of Tenerife. Not only do they get assorted play areas, children’s clubs stuffed full of age-appropriate games, crafts and activities, plus their own dedicated water park and splash pool, there’s even a fairytale castle and giant Dragon Tree, complete with light show at night. Parents will probably be pretty content too, given that it’s all included in the price, along with meals, snacks, various activities and some lavish-looking evening shows. This fantasy-themed hotel is apparently based on the story of Papimber and the Gardens of the Hesperides. No, we haven’t a clue who or what Papimber is – but it all looks like jolly good fun. Rooms cost from around £185 a night. Most tourists in Marrakech spend their time exploring the city’s lively street life and haggling for exotic souvenirs in the maze of alleyways that make up the central souks. But if all you really want to do is soak up some sunshine you could just base yourself at the Labranda Targa resort hotel on the northwest outskirts of town and pass a day or two doing nothing more demanding than flopping on a sun lounger in between dips into one of the four pools. Children get their own playground, miniclub and a freshwater pool with slides, and there’s an animation team keeping guests entertained throughout the day. Rooms are fairly basic but also very affordable, with rates from as little at £60 per night in June (including meals, drinks and some activities). And if you do decide to head into town, there’s a free shuttle bus to take you there. Photo credit: Ikos Aria Fly to Marrakech from £44 It’s a half-hour drive from Madeira airport to the Pestana Bay Ocean Aparthotel, which sits right on the shingle beach of Praia Formosa. Leave your window open at night and you can fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on pebbles. A giant kingfisher mural adorns one end of the building and the simply furnished rooms (from £104 a night) have large windows leading out on to a balcony and splashes of tropical colour in the soft furnishings. All rooms come with kitchenettes – which you might never use, given that drinks and meals are included in the room rate. No need to fret about missing a meal if you go out for a day either – they’ll kindly give you a boxed lunch to take with you. Free facilities include an outdoor pool, sauna, Turkish bath and games room, and if you want to head into central Funchal, the hotel runs a complimentary shuttle service until early evening.

The Syntopia, Crete – fly from £51 Photo credit: The Syntopia Find hotel dealsCheck-inCheck-outGuests12345678910Rooms12345Search hotelscenter_img Rethymno’s appealing combination of charming old town, taverna-lined harbour and long sandy beach makes it an understandable favourite with visitors to Crete. This year it’s acquired a handsome new place to stay with the opening of The Syntopia, set just back from the coast on the eastern edge of town. Designed to offer an alternative to the island’s classic hotels, this adults-only resort promises a barefoot-luxury, hippie-chic vibe and is clearly aimed at an Instagram-savvy, sociable clientele. The décor incorporates lots of wood, wicker and stone; there are stylish day beds, palm trees and a cushion-strewn tipi by the pool; and entertainment options include live music, weekly pool parties, an open-air cinema and a programme of occasional events including cheese-making and raki-tasting. Most of the facilities, as well as food and drink, are included in your room rate and although there’s an extra charge for spa treatments, you get a 15-minute massage on the house. Rooms cost from around £104 a night. 1.

Now it’s brought its award-winning formula to the Dodecanese islands, where the brand new Ikos Aria, its fourth property, has just opened on the southwest coast of Kos. Rooms are super-chic, with a pale colour palette, smart TVs and floor-to-ceiling windows that let the light flood in. When it comes to food and drink, you get seven bars and eight restaurants to choose from, half of them with menus devised by Michelin-starred chefs. Better yet, they’re included in the room rate, as are the in-room minibars (refilled every day), the children’s clubs (for ages 4 to 17) and a wide assortment of activities, including yoga, paddle boarding and canoeing. Heck, they even throw in the loan of a Mini for a day, so you can explore the island without forking out more for car hire. Rooms from around £144 a night with a minimum stay of 5 nights over the summer months. Turkey’s Turquoise Coast enjoyed a real boom in popularity last year and that looks all set to continue this summer. It’s at least partly down to the fact that a great exchange rate makes the country extra affordable for UK travellers but it also helps that the beautiful shoreline of southern Turkey is littered with an ever-growing number of swish accommodation options. Among them is the Hilton Dalaman Sarigerme Resort, set in large, well-tended grounds and home to an abundance of facilities, including nine restaurants, even more bars, and a whopping 10 swimming pools, some with slides to keep the kids occupied when they’re not being entertained in the children’s clubs. Meals, drinks and snacks are included in the cost, minibars are refilled daily. And even better, you don’t have to pay anything extra for many of the on-site activities, such as archery, fitness classes, sauna and certain water sports. Rooms cost from around £141 a night.

first_img by Hillel Italie, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 15, 2018 5:01 am PDT Sigrid Nunez’s novel “The Friend” wins National Book Award NEW YORK — Sigrid Nunez’s “The Friend,” a meditative novel about grief, books and, not least, a Great Dane named Apollo, has won the National Book Award for fiction. Other winners Wednesday night included Jeffrey C. Stewart’s “The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke” for nonfiction and Justin Philip Reed’s “Indecency for poetry.During a ceremony and dinner benefit at Cipriani Wall Street when those honored had roots throughout the world, from Peru to Japan, Elizabeth Acevedo’s “The Poet X” won for young people’s literature, and Yoko Tawada’s “The Emissary,” translated by Margaret Mitsutani, won for translation, a category newly revived.Nunez’s book tells of a woman mourning the death of her literary mentor and of her bond with the dog he left behind. It is a story, in part, of connection and distance. And Nunez, author of such previous novels as “Salvation City” and “The Last of Her Kind,” noted in her acceptance speech that she didn’t seek community when she became a writer, but unexpectedly found it.“I thought it was something I could do alone and hidden, in the privacy of my own room,” she said. “How lucky to have discovered that writing books made the miraculous possible, to be removed from the world and be part of the world at the same time.“And tonight how happy I am to feel a part of the world.”Nunez’s novel was chosen from among five fiction works set mostly in the present, and touching with lyricism and intensity upon everything from race and sexuality to climate change. Finalist Jamel Brinkley, author of the story collection “A Lucky Man,” told The Associated Press earlier Wednesday that “Our lives vibrate with uncertainty and mystery, with paths precariously taken or not taken, and they are often under threat by one thing or another. Many of our lives are under threat by design.” Lauren Groff, a nominee for the story collection “Florida,” said that “In these frightening and fraught times, I had to come into the full certainty that art was meaningful enough for me to devote my heart to it.”“Parks and Recreation” actor Nick Offerman served as master of ceremonies and soon learned that among the publishing community you’re more likely to get cheers with tributes to reading than with double entendre about “thumb drives.” One popular line: “In an age when our First Amendment rights and truth itself are very much in peril, books remain the ultimate repository of creative ideas and irreplaceable knowledge.”Honorary medals were given to novelist Isabel Allende and to Doron Weber of the Alfred P. Foundation for its support of books about the sciences. Weber was introduced by “Hidden Figures” author Margot Lee Shetterly, one of hundreds the foundation has helped support. Referring to concerns new and old, Weber called for the protection of “nonpartisan forms of knowledge” and the continued dialogue between art and science.“We continue to invite scientists and humanists to engage one another,” he said, calling them “two side of the same human impulse to understand and meaningfully describe the world around us and inside us.”Allende, author of “The House of the Spirits” and many other best-sellers, is the first Spanish language writer to receive an honorary National Book Award medal. A native of Peru, she has lived in the U.S. since the 1980s and for years was a political refugee from Chile during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.“Although I am critical of many things in this country I am proud to be an American citizen. I have received much more than I ever dreamed of and I have been offered the opportunity to give something back,” she said.Allende said she has been an outsider, in transit, for much of her life. She spoke of her award as a kind of deed of ownership, a sign that she is home.“Maybe I’m not an alien after all. Maybe it’s time to plant my roots and relax,” she said. “Maybe I’m not going anywhere, anymore.”The book awards are presented by the nonprofit National Book Foundation. Judges, who include writers, critics and other members of the literary community, chose from more than 1,600 books submitted by publishers when considering the awards. Winners in the competitive categories each receive $10,000. In translation, the prize money is divided between the author and translator.Hillel Italie, The Canadian Presscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
