Cathay Pacific typo

Was it an accident or was it an advertisement?

A Cathay Pacific plane showed up at Hong Kong
International Airport with a misspelled logo.

Instead of Cathay Pacific it read “Cathay Paciic”—
missing the “F” in “ “Pacific.”

A photo of the logo posted by
Cathay Pacific soon went viral.

Some wonder if the “typo” was really a low-budget
social media advertising campaign.

The search for the pennsylvania man who killed his parents in a shooting rampage has come to an end.

Six rounds were shot, nobody was injured in that incident......


However less than an hour later, the d-a says, rogal went to the bellingham retirement community in east goshen.


Tom hogan/chester county district attorney


"At approximately 6:15 p.M., he shot and killed both of his parents in their apartment in the senior living center."


Police say william and nancy rogal were both in their late 80's.


The bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives was among the agencies that responded to the attack.


No one else was injured at the retirement home......Which was secure within hours of the shooting.


Authorities believe the divorce is what set rogal on his fatal rampage.

Julie Chen bids farewell to 'The Talk' after Moonves allegations

Julie Chen, the wife of former CBS Corp Chief Executive Leslie Moonves, said on Tuesday (September 18) she is stepping down from daytime show "The Talk" on CBS, a week after Moonves resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations.

Chen, who married Moonves in 2004, made the announcement in a teary, prerecorded video message played on the CBS women's talk show where she has been a co-host for nine years.

"I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I've decided to leave 'The Talk'," she said. She did not mention the accusations against Moonves.

"I have been at 'The Talk' since the day it started nine years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family," Chen added.

Chen has defended her husband against the allegations, which

date back to the 1980s. Moonves, who was one of the most powerful men in television, has denied any nonconsensual sexual conduct.

Chen announced last week she would be taking a few days off from "The Talk," where the hosts bring their personal experiences to discussions on topical issues.

CBS in a statement on Tuesday said it respected Chen's decision to leave, and praised her "incredible energy, grace and professionalism" on the show.

Chen thanked the crew and her co-hosts, particularly Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne.

"We've been together since day one," she told them. "I have spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship."

Chen is expected to remain as the host of the CBS reality show "Big Brother."

A toilet, a shopping trolley and a garden shed, all raced at high speed at an event in northern England this weekend showcasing the eccentric side of motor sports.

The toilet, which a team of young students had rigged out with wheels and an old motorcycle engine, reached just over 70 miles per hour (113.5 kph), breaking Britain's speed limit for cars.

The shopping trolley, mounted on go-cart wheels, did 91.55 mph (147 kph), with its maker, 59-year-old engineer Matt McKeown, clinging on as he straddled its jet engine.

Fastest of all was the shed, which topped 100 mph at the time trials on the runway at an airfield in Elvington, North Yorkshire.

Straightliners, the motor sports company that organised the event, said all three had set new world records.

RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY

SHOTLIST:

ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY

Washington, DC - 17 September 2018

1. Wide shot of President Trump in Roosevelt Room, as reporters shout questions at him

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Name, Occupation:

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known. He's an outstanding intellect. An outstanding judge. Respected by everybody. Never even had a little blemish on his record. The FBI has I think gone through a process six times with him over the years where he went to higher and higher positions. He is somebody very special. At the same time, we want to go through a process. We want to make sure everything is perfect, everything is just right. I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner, because they had this information for many months. And they shouldn't have waited til literally the last days. They should have done it a lot sooner. But with all of that being said we want to go through the process. One thing I will say is that as I understand it, Judge Kavanaugh spent quite a bit of time with Senator Feinstein and it wasn't even brought up at that meeting and she had this information. So you would have thought certainly that she would have brought it up at the meeting – not wait til everything's finished and then have to start a process all over again. But with all of it being said, we want to go through a full process. I have great confidence in the US Senate and in their procedures and what they're doing and I think that's probably what they're going to do. They'll go through a process and hear everybody out. I think it's important. I believe they think it's important. But again, he is one of the great intellects and one of the finest people that anybody has known. You look at his references – I've never seen anything quite like it. So they'll go through that process and get it done.

(Reporter question) Should there be a delay?

I don't know. It depends on the process. I'd like to see a complete process. I'd like everybody to be very happy. Most importantly I want the American people to be happy because they're getting somebody that is great. I want him to go in at the absolute highest level. And I think to do that you have to go through this. If it takes a little delay it'll take a little delay. It shouldn't certainly be very much. But again, this is something that should have been brought up long before this. They had the information in July as I understand it. That's a long time ago and nobody mentioned it until the other day. You know, it's very unfortunate they didn't mention it sooner. But with all of that being said, it will, I'm sure, work out very well. You're talking about an individual who is as high a quality individual as you will ever see.

(Reporter question) Have you spoken to him today?

I have not spoken to Judge Kavanaugh.

(Reporter question) Has he offered to withdraw?

Next question. What a ridiculous question.

(Reporter question) Is the confirmation he still on track?

"Oh I think he's on track. I think he's very much on track. If they delay a little bit just to make sure everbody's happy – they want to be happy. I can tell you the Republican senators want to be a hundred percent happy themselves. They're doing it very very professionally. Again, this should have been brought up a long time ago

(Reporter question)

You're going to see on China today, right after close of business, we'll be announcing something. And it will be a lot of money coming into the coffers of the United States of America. A lot of money coming in, but you'll be seeing what we're doing right after close of business today. The market's closing. Thank you."

Conway- Kavanaugh accuser should not be 'ignored'

2018-09-17    9 views
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's accuser Monday: "She should not be insulted. She should not be ignored. She should testify under oath and she should do it on Capitol Hill."

The woman accusing Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her is willing to tell her story in public to a Senate panel considering his nomination to the Supreme Court, her lawyer said Monday.

Debra S. Katz, the attorney for the woman, Christine Blasey Ford, said her client considered the incident to be an attempted rape.

Kavanaugh had been on a smooth confirmation track, but the new allegations have roiled that process.

Conway, who said she had discussed the situation with President Donald Trump, said that both Ford and Kavanaugh should testify, but made clear it was up to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

She said Sen. Lindsey Graham had told her it could happen as soon as tomorrow and the White House will "respect the process."

Stressing that Kavanaugh had already testified and undergone FBI background checks, Conway said: "I think you have to weigh this testimonial evidence from Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh along with the considerable body of evidence that is already there about the judge's temperament and qualifications and character."

Kavanaugh has "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegations, a statement the White House repeated Monday.

Also, on Monday afternoon, Kavanaugh called the accusations "completely false", adding that he will "refute" them before the Senate Judiciary panel.

Pompeo criticises former US Secretary of State Kerry on Iran talks
Della.sun
2018-09-16    19 views
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticised his Obama-era predecessor John Kerry for "actively undermining" US policy on Iran by meeting several times recently with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who was his main interlocutor in the Iran deal negotiations.

In unusually blunt and caustic language, Pompeo said Kerry's meetings with Zarif were "unseemly and unprecedented" and "beyond inappropriate".

US President Donald Trump had late Thursday accused Kerry of holding "illegal meetings wiith the very hostile Iranian regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people".

Pompeo said he would leave "legal determinations to others" but slammed Kerry as a former Secretary of State for engaging with "the world's largest state sponsor of terror" and telling Iran to "wait out this administration". He noted that just this week Iranian-backed militias had fired rockets at US diplomatic compounds in Iraq.

He also took former Energy Secretary Earnest Moniz and ex-Iran deal negotiator Wendy Sherman to task for joining Kerry at a meeting with Zarif and other Iranian officials earlier this year at a security conference in Munich.

Along with Kerry, Moniz and Sherman played key roles in negotiating the 2015 agreement between Iran and several world powers that lifted sanctions against Tehran in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear programme.

Such meetings, between a private US citizen and a foreign official, are not against the law and not necessarily inappropriate or a violation of federal regulations, but Trump, Pompeo and several Republican lawmakers say they are evidence that Kerry and former Obama administration officials are trying to subvert Trump's hard line on Iran.

As Florence weakened to a tropical depression early Sunday, North Carolina braced for catastrophic, widespread flooding that forecasters warned could be the next stage of a mounting disaster.

Rivers swelled toward record levels, forecasters said, and thousands of people were ordered to evacuate for fear that the next few days could bring the most destructive round of flooding in North Carolina history.

The storm's death toll climbed to 13 and about 740,000 homes and businesses remained without power thoughout North and South Carolina. Utilities said some could be out for weeks.

Mom Adopted African Son, Changed Her Life Forever

2018-09-12    2 views

It was December 2000 when
Ann Miller and her daughter, Nellie, were Christmas shopping,
And Nellie noticed fishbowls
around the store collecting
money for charity—
with nearby pictures of children whose hands had been chopped off.


The store owner informed Miller about a mission called Feed My Lambs International,
which helped victims of the black market diamond conflict in Sierra Leone.
Miller later met the mission’s founder, Lonny Houk, and his wife, Katie.


Miller volunteered with the mission.


“This voice in my head spoke to me and just said to keep a child from Sierra Leone. I was dumbfounded"


"I have four children of my own already … but I felt very excited.”
Miller reconnected with Houk, then about to go to Sierra Leone to bring needy kids back on medical visas.


Miller chose a boy named Francis and a girl named Emma.


Yet, when Houk returned from Sierra Leone, he brought two boys: Francis and Salifu.
Emma had vanished, and Salifu wasn’t even on the list.
Salifu was living in a Freetown refugee camp with his mother and three siblings when Houk found him.
As Houk and his crew were screening patients, 6-year-old Salifu put his hands and chin on a nearby table.
Salifu had wounds from a rebel attack four years prior that killed his uncle and split his family apart.
Using a machete, the rebels had attempted to sever the boy’s head from his torso.
Knowing that Salifu would not get the medical attention he required, Houk took him on the plane.
There were some growing pains early on. Salifu had never been out of country, and didn't speak English.
But Salifu learned how to communicate fairly quickly.
“He was the most cheerful, lively, happy, humming, singing, dancing child from the get-go,” she said.
Salifu was meant to come to the United States for medical care and go back when he was healthy.
Yet Miller felt a deep connection to Salifu and eventually adopted him.
Miller learned how much the cuts on the back of Salifu’s head affected his mental processing.
Still, Salifu’s persistence and kindness helped him throughout life.
Through his thoughtful words and actions, Salifu fostered a support network which
allowed him to exceed everyone’s wildest expectations as he grew.
“There were so many reasons why Sal should’ve just never been successful,”
“He overcame a language barrier, cultural complete change, climate change, leaving his family, changing his food,”
“major surgery. We did everything you could do to a human being pretty much to this kid and he thrived!”

A Senate committee on Friday (September 7) held the final day of its hearing on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, with the conservative U.S. appeals court judge appearing to be on course to secure confirmation despite Democratic opposition.

In its fourth day of the hearing, the committee on Friday heard from outside witnesses testifying for and against the nomination, with protesters again interrupting the proceedings in opposition to Kavanaugh.

Among those testifying were two representatives of the American Bar Association, the leading U.S. professional group for lawyers, who said a panel that rates judicial nominees gave Kavanaugh a "well qualified" rating.

Other witnesses warned that Kavanaugh could help cement a "decades long effort to destroy Roe v. Wade" the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion nationwide.

Kavanaugh has signaled respect for the ruling, calling it an important legal precedent that had been reaffirmed by the justices over the decades.
