Five police officers killed in Dallas, Texas during sniper attack

Sunday, July 10, 2016

On Thursday, five police officers were killed and seven were injured after a sniper attacked a public protest march in downtown Dallas, Texas. Sources indicate at least three other people were taken into custody for questioning relating to the attack. The march was held to protest the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota during engagements with police officers.

Police identified 25-year-old Micah Johnson as the suspect. Johnson had previously served in the US army, and police reported he said he wanted to exact revenge upon police officers after news of Sterling and Castile’s deaths. Ammunition and weapons were found inside Johnson’s home. Dallas Police reported the policemen were shot at from a height. Officials said two civilians were also injured in the attack.

Micah Johnson served for the United States Army Reserve from 2009 until early 2015, including a tour of Afghanistan. Johnson had no criminal record. His attack was reported to be a lone mission.

After the attack earlier on Thursday, police killed Micah Johnson in El Centro College’s parking lot by a bomb explosion.

Hillary Clinton, 2016 United States presidential election candidate and favorite for the Democratic nomination this July, said, “There is too much violence, too much hate, too much senseless killing, too many people dead who shouldn’t be. No-one has all the answers. We have to find them together.”

After Johnson was killed, Mike Rawlings, Dallas’ mayor, said “We believe now the city is safe”.

The Latest And Old Trends In Plastic Surgery}

The Latest and Old Trends in Plastic Surgery


Devjeet Singh

With plastic surgery becoming more and more acceptable in middle class homes, the number of surgeries being performed year by year is steadily increasing. With this larger clientele, doctors are continually updating and improving and inventing new procedures. Below are the new trends and old surgeries that may be the most requested of the year.

Ear lobe Rejuvenation

As you get older your ear lobes tend to sag and stretch especially if you have been a lifelong earring wearer. Just like wrinkles can give away your age, so can your ears. There are surgeries to shorten the length of the expanded earlobe or make them plumper as they can thin out from the stretching. This has also become popular for those who have purposely stretched their ears for large gauged earrings, but no longer want the earrings or the holes left by purposely stretching the earlobes.

Permanent Lip Injections

Years ago, collagen lip injections were the most popular, but their very short life span have found them out of favor. Now people are looking toward more permanent results by using fat or synthetic implanted materials.

Though not guaranteed to be permanent, fat injections are done by removing fat from the abdomen and injecting into the lips. For a guaranteed permanent look, a synthetic material can be used. It is shaped like a small tube and is inserted through little slits made by a needle.

Adjustable breast implants

For many women getting breast implants what choice plagues them most is what size. It’s hard to know what a certain amount of cc’s will look on your body when looking at a plastic mound filled with liquid. With adjustable implants, if you don’t like the size, they can be non surgically adjusted for you.

Lipodissolve.It has a broad field and is sometimes confused over reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery is used to correct congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, or the effects of disease like breast reduction, cleft palate surgery and birthmark removal, whilst it isn’t much associated with necessary reconstruction. It’s more about improving looks for aesthetic purposes such as rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and liposuction.

This is typically due to errors in the surgical procedures. It could also result because of wrong choices by either the patient or surgeon before the procedure. It is very easy to identify bad facial surgery, as it is visible and obvious. In case of facelifts that have become tight, it is apparent in the form of asymmetrical and tight appearance of face muscles. As a result of bad plastic surgery of the face, patients at times lose the mobility of facial features and it also hampers the sensation due to damaged nerves.

It is possible to make amends in a bad surgery by re-working the problem with another corrective surgery. However, serious problems as the case of a bad rhinoplasty are almost impossible to amend. It is important to note that repair job can only be done if there is enough tissue left for it. It is easier to camouflage plastic surgery that has gone bad in other unexposed parts of the body rather than the face.

Maria Contreras-Sweet Group buys The Weinstein Company assets, saves it from bankruptcy

  • Posted on March 21, 2018 at 2:33 am

Sunday, March 4, 2018

On Thursday in a meeting at New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office, Maria Contreras-Sweet Group, billionaire Ron Burkle, and a number of other investors acquired assets of The Weinstein Company for reportedly about US$500 million. The Weinstein Company had financial difficulties and was nearly bankrupt after Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women last year, which impacted the business budget.

At least two of The Weinstein Company board of directors — consisting of Tarak Ben Ammar, Lance Maerov and Bob Weinstein — participated in the meeting, according to The New York Times. Maria Contreras-Sweet Group was represented by Maria Contreras-Sweet and Ron Burkle. The New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman was also in the meeting.

Maria Contreras-Sweet Group agreed to pay The Weinstein Company’s debt, sized at US$225 million, reports indicated. The acquisition would save around 150 jobs held at the Weinstein Company. Maria Contreras-Sweet Group announced the deal, also confirmed by The Weinstein Company. The deal was expected to take about 40 days to be completed.

The agreement required Maria Contreras-Sweet Group to protect the jobs of company employees, and establish a victim compensation fund which would compensate victims of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct while not rewarding the “bad actors”, as Schneiderman put it — people who had contributed to the sexual misconduct. The victim compensation fund would allegedly be around US$90 million, according to reports.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against The Weinstein Company in early February of this year. He reportly indicated he might settle the lawsuit after the deal is finalized.

Maria Contreras-Sweet Group said they would use the assets in creating a new movie studio with a majority-female leadership.

The Weinstein Company said on Monday, three days before the deal announcement, it intended to file for bankruptcy as it could not find a buyer that would keep it afloat until the deal would be finalized.

The Weinstein Company was founded in 2005.

Hurricane Nate weakens as it reaches United States

  • Posted on March 21, 2018 at 2:22 am

Monday, October 9, 2017

After killing 30 people on a rampage through Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador, and Nicaragua and dumping rain on the Yucatan in Mexico, Hurricane Nate reached the U.S. states of Louisiana and Mississippi on the north shore of the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday night. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) downgraded Nate to a tropical storm on Sunday morning. A state of emergency was declared parts of Louisiana, which saw damage from the significantly more intense Hurricane Harvey earlier this year; Alabama; Florida; and Mississippi.

Nate made its first U.S. landfall on Saturday night, bringing winds of 85 miles per hour (134 kph) and considerable storm surge to the mouth of the Mississippi River. By Sunday morning, these had declined to 35 miles per hour (56 kph). Tens of thousands of households in Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana were without power.

In contrast, when Nate made its way across Latin America, dozens of people died. Some 400,000 Costa Ricans lost access to safe drinking water. All train travel and a great deal of air travel halted, and many national parks closed. Landslides trapped travelers in a dangerous road segment nicknamed “the Mountain of Death” on the Inter-American Highway, and the high water of the Tárcoles River raised concerns about crocodile attacks.

“We were well aware that this could’ve been a much more serious storm. There was talk of it being a Category 2 with an 11-feet tidal surge when it came ashore. It did not — happily — it did not live up to that billing,” said Vincent Creel, public affairs manager for Biloxi, Mississippi, near which Nate made its second U.S. landfall.

The storm had been expected to move further west, and some evacuations were recommended in the New Orleans area in preparation. Many of the ports on the U.S. Gulf Coast were closed to shipping. In one way, Nate is having a more pronounced effect than Harvey: production of oil and natural gas is a fraction of normal levels as workers evacuated oil rigs and platforms.

The NHC forecast the storm to continue north and east, losing intensity as it moves inland.

“Our great team at FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency] is prepared for #HurricaneNate. Everyone in LA [Lousiana], MS [Mississippi], AL [Alabama] and FL [Florida] please listen to your local authorities and be safe!” tweeted President Donald Trump.

This is the fourth major hurricane to hit U.S. territory since summer, after Harvey, Irma, and Maria.

2010 Chile earthquakes: Government confirms 452 dead

  • Posted on March 20, 2018 at 3:07 am

Saturday, March 20, 2010

Chilean Government confirmed 452 deaths caused by the earthquake and tsunami that struck the central and south zones of Chile on February 27 and the Pichilemu earthquake on March 11. The official death toll was released yesterday by the Interior Undersecretary Rodrigo Ubilla.

Ubilla explained that “after a rigorous work in which participated Carabineros, the Investigation Police, the Medical Legal Service, and the Civil Registry, and was later checked by the Interior Undersecretary, we made a unique list of dead people and of denunciations of presumed dead.”

In spite of this, Ubilla said that there are just 359 identified dead people, with death certificates and cause of death. He added that in 67 other cases, the dead people were identified by RUT (identification number), but there are no death certificates issued, that is the tool “that allows us to clarify if the death was produced directly by the earthquake or the tsunami.” Carabineros reports, at least, 97 presumed disgraces denunciations, related to the cataclysm.

Indoors Or Outdoors Which Venue Type Suits You The Best?}

Indoors or Outdoors – Which Venue Type Suits You the Best?


Manisha NigamOne of the most important parts of planning any event is selecting the perfect venue for it. A venue can solely define the success and failure of your event. There is always a confusion amongst the people regarding the selection of indoor or outdoor venue. There are ample number or indoor as well as outdoor Clubs in Bangalore available for organizing any kind of party or event. Here is how you can decide what event venue will suit you the best:Type of EventThe type of event is the first thing to take into consideration while choosing the venue. If it is a huge party or a concert etc, there is no way that it can be easily contained in a closed indoor venue. Whereas if it’s a small gathering or an interactive event, looking for indoor venues is a better option.Size of The AudienceFor a small size audience, you can go for an indoor venue. For an audience that is in huge numbers, an outdoor venue is more suitable. Additionally, if you have a definite guest list, choosing an indoor venue is easier than not having a definite guest list.Weather and Time of DayThe problem with an outdoor venue is that you cannot control the temperature according to your own needs. so, if you book an outdoor venue in blazing heat or extremely cold temperatures, it will totally kill the mood of the party. Budget for The EventThe outdoor venues are usually costlier than the indoor venues. A Sports club in Bangalore will cost you way more than a closing banquet. so, if you are on a tight budget, opting for an indoor venue is a better and cost friendly option.Sound System RequirementsIf you are having an event that requires sound systems for things like speeches and live performances, opt for an indoor venue. Outdoor venue sound setting can be arranged; however, it will not be as good as the indoor ones.Activities to Take PlaceActivities such as fireworks and sky lanterns etc can be easily done in an outdoor venue whereas these are usually not allowed in the indoor venues for safety reasons. If the indoor venue has a roof or a small outdoor area, this is the best option to go for.Theme of the EventThe thing about having a themed party in an outdoor location is that the decoration cannot be done as per requirement. However, if you want to save the cost of the decoration, outdoor venues are the right choice for you.The selection of an indoor, as well as an outdoor venue, solely depends on a person’s choice. There are pros and cons to both these and if you want to have a party or a celebration indoors or outdoors, these things can be taken care of by some easy preventive measures. so, keep the above things in mind and put in some of your creativity to have a great event.
