Emiliano Sala plane wreckage found in English Channel, father calls it a bad dream

first_img India Today Web Desk LondonFebruary 4, 2019UPDATED: February 4, 2019 10:55 IST Emiliano Sala had signed for Cardiff City from Nantes FC only a week before his disappearance. (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSEmiliano Sala has been missing since two weeksCardiff City and Nantes FC have been mourning the Sala tragedyThe search for Sala has continued through private investigators funded by his family and football fraternityThe wreckage Emiliano Sala’s aircraft that disappeared over the English Channel last month with the Cardiff City player in the plane has been found in the underwater search, the marine scientist directing the private search said on Sunday.The 28-year-old Argentina-born forward had been en route from Nantes in western France with pilot David Ibbotson to make his debut for Welsh team Cardiff City when the plane is believed to have crashed into the sea on Jan. 21.A privately funded underwater search had begun on Sunday, several days after investigators said they found two seat cushions on the French coast that likely belonged to the aircraft.”Wreckage of the plane carrying Emiliano Sala and piloted by David Ibbotson was located early this morning,” marine scientist David Mearns, who directed the search, said on Twitter.Wreckage of the plane carrying Emiliano Sala and piloted by David Ibbotson was located early this morning by the FPV MORVEN. As agreed with the AAIB they moved the GEO OCEAN III over the position we provided them to visually identify the plane by ROV. #EmilianoSalaDavid Mearns (@davidlmearns) February 3, 2019Mearns said Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) had moved its vessel over the position his team had located to visually identify the plane using a remote-operated vehicle.”The families of Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson have been notified by police. The AAIB will be making a statement tomorrow. Tonight our sole thoughts are with the families and friends of Emiliano and David,” Mearns said.The families of Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson have been notified by Police.

Tonight our sole thoughts are with the families and friends of Emiliano and David. #EmilianoSalas #NoDejenDeBuscarAEmilianoSalaadvertisementDavid Mearns (@davidlmearns) February 3, 2019Sala’s father Horacio Sala, who is still back home in Argentina, woke up with the news of the plane wreckage being found. He has accepted that all this feels like a “bad dream”.”I can’t believe it. It’s a bad dream,” Horacio Sala told Cronica TV at his home in Progreso.Sala’s father is the only member of the family who stayed behind at home as the whole family went to Nantes to help with the search.”I talk to them every day. But since I don’t have WhatsApp it’s expensive to call them or for them to call me. But anyway, they kept saying days were going by, and that there had been zero word on Emiliano, or on the plane,” Sala’s father said.France striker Kylian Mbappe donated USD 34,000 for the search and rescue operations of the missing plane carrying Cardiff City player Emiliano Sala.More than 300,000 euros ($340,000) had been raised online to allow Sala’s family to fund a private search, after an official rescue operation for the light aircraft was called off after three days. Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona were among those making pleas to resume a search.Speaking ahead of Cardiff’s trip to Arsenal on Tuesday, their first match since Sala’s plane vanished, manager Neil Warnock said this has been the most difficult week of his career and admits he had questioned whether he could even carry on doing his job.”You think 24 hours a day about whether to carry on,” Warnock, told reporters.”It’s impossible to sleep. I’ve been in football management for 40 years and it’s been by far the most difficult week in my career, by an absolute mile.”It’s been a traumatic week and even now I can’t get my head around the situation.”Also Read | Emiliano Sala would be proud of Cardiff’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth: WarnockAlso Read | Some players reluctant to join Cardiff after Emiliano Sala disappearance: manager WarnockAlso Read | Cardiff City players scared to fly after Emiliano Sala disappearance: Defender Sol BambaAlso Read | Cardiff City, Arsenal pay tribute to Emiliano Sala in 1st match since his disappearanceFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

They also beat us in Delhi, so both the teams are fairly confident, and it is going to be a tough match. However, they are also missing some of their players, and we are without Kagiso now, so it is going to be a difficult task as well, but a well-matched encounter,” said Iyer ahead of the match.”They have a very good past in such situations but we are also looking forward to creating history,” Iyer said with confidence.Capitals finished with 18 points from their 14 IPL matches but finished third due to poor net run rate compared to Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Sunrisers, however, were lucky to qualify despite losing eight games in the tournament.Eliminator: #DCvSRHDate: Wednesday, May 8Venue: VizagDilli, it’s time to #RoarMacha in the #VIVOIPLPlayoffs!#ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/g6sgaSNe6JDelhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) May 5, 2019Iyer though did not complain when asked if it is unfair.”I think we should not think about that, it is how the tournament is. IPL is a funny tournament. Any team can beat anyone and we have seen that in the past editions where the team finishing on top of the table has struggled to life the trophy eventually.advertisement”But even before the start of the tournament, we wouldn’t have thought that a team finishing with only 12 points will make it to the playoffs, but here we are. So instead you have to take all the factors in your stride, and play your best cricket on the day to come out on top,” said the 24-year-old.Iyer said sticking to basics has been key to their good form this season and he would want his team to continue doing that.”We don’t have to change much, we have to play the way we have been playing. We need to do the small things right, keep everything simple and stick to our basics, because that is what has helped us in coming this far.”I believe the more you complicate things, the more difficult it is going to get for you, so that is what I tell myself and the team, to keep things simple, and believe that everything will fall into place,” said the Capitals’ skipper who has scored 442 runs this season.Also Read | Umpire Nigel Llong under BCCI scanner after ‘door kick’ controversyFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Far Off the Beaten Path: 3 Most Remote National Parks in the United States

first_img Give Your Hypercar the Garage It Deserves with a Custom Aston Martin Lair Editors’ Recommendations Highland Park Takes Tailgating to Another Level Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon — every American has heard of the country’s touchstone national parks. However, the National Park Service consists of many smaller, lesser-known, and far-flung destinations that each provide the perfect opportunity to unwind and unplug. Here are three of the least visited, most remote U.S. National Parks.Dry Tortugas National ParkFloridaKey West is well-known as “the end of the road” for road trippers seeking the southernmost point in the contiguous United States. However, 70 miles beyond the land of Jimmy Buffet lies the 100-square-mile Dry Tortugas National Park. The park consists almost entirely of water, plus seven tiny islands — all smaller than any of the Florida Keys. Garden Key, the main island in the archipelago, is home to Fort Jefferson. The 200-year-old fort is one of the largest in the country and remains well-intact to this day. Most visitors arrive by ferry or floatplane and quickly explore the fort for an hour or two before heading back to Key West. However, it’s worth planning a full-day visit to allow time for snorkeling or, better yet, diving. The surrounding waters are among the clearest and warmest of any in the United States. For an even more intense experience, book one of the few reservable camping spots near the fort. As the parks service allows few overnight guests, visitors are likely to have most of the park to themselves, and the sunsets and stargazing are out of this world.Gates of the Arctic National Park & PreserveAlaskaAlaska is no doubt the most rugged and remote of any state in the country, so it’s no surprise that it’s home to one of the least visited parks in the entire National Park system. Gates of the Arctic National Park & Preserve stretches across 7 million acres (an area larger than Belgium) of Arctic wilderness where muskoxen, caribou, and millions of birds roam free. It’s also home to the state’s native tribes who have survived and thrived off the land for more than 10,000 years. As the northernmost national park in the country, a visit requires a long, arduous trek that usually combines plenty of driving and multiple (often weather-delayed) flights. The payoff? Little more than 12,000 visitors annually make it one of the least visited national parks and the perfect place for a digital detox.Channel Islands National ParkCaliforniaLike Dry Tortugas, California’s Channel Islands National Park consists mainly of water and is only accessible by ferry. Of the eight islands that constitute the chain, five are protected and home to nearly 150 endemic species, prompting many to call it the “Galapagos of North America.” All are unique with their own points of interest. Santa Cruz Island is best known for its sea caves, making it an ideal spot for divers. East Anacapa Island boasts an early 20th-century lighthouse and hiking trails that lead to stunning Inspiration Point atop a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. San Miguel Island and Santa Barbara (the southernmost in the chain) are each home to massive seal colonies and nesting seabirds.

Fire destroys barn near Courtland

Damage is estimated at $350,000 after fire gutted a barn Friday night on Highway 3, just west of Courtland.Norfolk’s assistant fire chief Scott Pipe said no animals were in the barn and no one was injured.Someone driving by the farm spotted the smoke and flames just after 7 p.m. and called 911.Firefighters from four stations arrived to find the fire raging, said Pipe.“They ended up having to bring in heavy equipment to tear down parts of the barn to deal with the fire.“It was very cold and there was a strong wind. It was a real challenge for the crews.”Pipe said firefighters were at the scene for several hours. Hydro One workers, OPP traffic control officers and paramedics were also called in, along with trucks to salt the roads for fire equipment.Because of the rural location of the fire, extra water tankers also were brought in.Damage to the barn is estimated at $200,000 and the building’s contents at $150,000. read more

UN observes first anniversary of attack on world bodys compound in Nigeria

The United Nations family in Nigeria paused today to remember their colleagues who were killed a year ago during an attack on the world body’s compound in the capital, Abuja. Thirteen UN staff members, as well as several non-UN staff, died as a result of the suicide bombing on 26 August 2011, while more than 100 others were injured. Hundreds of personnel from 26 different UN agencies and entities had been at the compound when the bomber struck. “Although the devastating attack took the lives of our colleagues and partners and maimed many people, all of whom were in the building in the pursuit of service to humanity, our spirits have not been dampened,” said the UN Resident Coordinator in Nigeria, Daouda Toure. “Their death mobilizes us more than ever before. Their sacrifice will not be in vain,” he added. “We will strive to pursue our work for the people of Nigeria for the continuance of peace and stability of this great nation, and the socio-economic development of all.” Mr. Toure also paid tribute to the resilience and courage of UN staff and officials who have continued undaunted with their development and humanitarian work of helping the people of Nigeria regardless of the constraints. He reaffirmed that the UN system in Nigeria will continue on its mission “to assist in improving the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms.” The UN victims served with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), World Health Organization (WHO), UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), and UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). read more

Arrogant uncaring BUT trustworthy how Europeans see Germany

first_imgIN A MAJOR new survey of Europeans, Germany was found to be the most trusted nation in the European Union.But, it was also described as the most arrogant and least compassionate.The Washington DC-based Pew Research Center polled almost 8,000 people across Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Poland and the Czech Republic in March this year to ascertain their views on the European project and their feelings towards their neighbours.The answers highlight how Germany’s experience of the financial crisis has differed to those of seven other EU members. Currently, Germans feel better about the economy, their personal situations, the future, the European Union, economic integration and their own elected leaders.The role played by Angela Merkel and her government over the past five years has evoked mixed motions from Europeans. In all but one country, people consider Berlin the most trustworthy (Greece was the only exception: it chose itself as the most trustworthy).However, the same countries polled Germany as the ‘least compassionate’ and many also voted it as the ‘most arrogant’.Despite proclaiming itself the most trustworthy, Greece was named as the least trustworthy by three other countries, including Germany, the Czech Republic and France.In an odd result, France described itself as both the ‘most arrogant’ and ‘least arrogant’ country.Decline in SupportThe research showed a decline in support for the European Union in 2013 when compared to the previous year with favourability falling from a median of 60 per cent to just 45 per cent.The report believes that there has been an “erosion of faith in the animating principles that have driven so much of what [Europe] has accomplished internally”.The prolonged economic crisis has created centrifugal forces that are pulling European public opinion apart, separating the French from the Germans and the Germans from everyone else.According to the Pew Centre’s data, no European country is becoming “more dispirited and disillusioned” faster than France as the public mood sours dramatically.The French are negative about the economy with 91 per cent saying it is doing badly, a 10 per cent jump on last year’s figures. They are also unimpressed with their leadership, with Francois Hollande scoring less than his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy.In contrast, Germans are still mostly satisfied with Merkel and her approval rating is recorded at 74 per cent. There is a major gap to hit the second most popular leader – David Cameron of Great Britain at 37 per cent.Economic DoomAlthough they are optimistic about their own trustworthiness and compassion, just one per cent of Greeks are positive on their economic conditions. Again, Germany is the only country of the eight to diverge from such feelings of concern.Positive sentiment is down 61 percentage points in Spain, 54 points in Britain and 22 points in Italy.A lack of jobs is the major concern for most countries, as is public debt. The gap between rich and poor is also a worry for European nations. Inequality is the principle concern in Germany.Any good news?Disillusionment with the European project has not turned residents off the euro which remains in public favour. More than six-in-ten people want to keep the single currency, with support increasing in both Italy and Spain.Angela Merkel: ‘No, I was not an East German propaganda official’Germany arrests 93-year-old over alleged duty at Auschwitzlast_img read more

Le procès de lAffaire de la dioxine souvre en Savoie

first_imgLe procès de l'”Affaire de la dioxine” s’ouvre en SavoieCe lundi 29 novembre 2010, le procès de l'”Affaire de la dioxine” s’est ouvert au tribunal correctionnel d’Albertville, en Savoie. Il concerne un scandale écologique présenté comme sans précédent pour la France dans les années 2000.Au banc des accusés se trouvent Novergie Centre-Est, filiale de Suez Environnement, qui devra répondre de l’accusation de “non respect des normes environnementales”, ainsi qu’un ancien directeur, précise l’AFP. L’affaire de la dioxine concerne un incinérateur de Gilly-sur-Isère, en Savoie, dans lequel a été mesuré dans les années 2000 un taux trop élevé de dioxine, ce qui a conduit à de nombreux cas de cancers, selon les riverains. L’incinérateur de Gilly-sur-Isère, dont la fermeture administrative a été décidée en 2001, a été démantelé en 2008 seulement. Les taux de dioxine mesurés sur les lieux dépassaient parfois jusqu’à 750 fois la limite légale autorisée, et cela alors que la dioxine est catégorisée comme polluant cancérigène, explique l’AFP. Lors de cette période de trouble, des riverains s’étaient fait entendre en déposant plainte, expliquant que les cas de cancers dans la région avaient largement augmenté à cause de l’incinérateur. De plus, 24 tonnes de produits laitiers avaient été détruit, et 7.000 têtes de bovins tuées par mesure de précaution.Depuis, les experts s’affrontent afin de démontrer s’il existe un lien de causalité entre le taux de dioxine présent autour de l’incinérateur de déchets et le nombre de cas de cancers. A ce jour, aucun lien n’a pu être formellement établi, mais les 200 riverains qui ont porté plainte en 2002 pour “homicide involontaire et mise en danger de la vie d’autrui” contre l’exploitant de l’incinérateur comptent bien avoir gain de cause.

New Town Meeting date for Building height increase

first_img RitzCarlton sets up signs for 12-storey on Grace Bay Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 27 Jul 2015 – It was postponed last Wednesday night, that public town hall meeting to discuss the proposal of a five story height increase for Provo. The government says this move to increase building height and density to 12 storeys is to boost “economic benefit, job growth, and stimulation of the construction industry, auxiliary services and tourism related businesses.”Originally, the Administration and Planning Department were soliciting electronic comments; that was criticized and our efforts to get an update on the feedback netted nothing. Now, the town hall meeting is again announced with a new date on Wednesday August 5 at the Gus Lightbourne Gym at 7pm. Still there is that option to make a written representation in email at publicconsultation@gov.tc or you can drop off your view to the office of the Premier between 8am and 4:30pm.As for how high the proposal wants to take the resort development and others in future; “the recommended building height increase is 12 stories (up to a maximum of 140 feet) as opposed to seven stories (up to a maximum of 90 feet).” Related Items:12 storey, Administration and Planning Department, gus lightbourne gym, town hall meeting Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Science Fair open to public viewing by noon Recommended for you Town Hall Meeting for Building Heights at gym later todaylast_img read more

Ralph Higgs, Minister of Tourism,  Environment, Heritage, Maritime & Gaming, returned to the territory this weekend, after attending UKOTs and Crown Dependencies meeting of Environment Ministers, held in the Isle of Man to discuss the future of the environment in their jurisdictions.  This meeting marked the third such annual meeting of the group, which provides a forum for Ministers to dialogue on issues of commonality among them, whilst seeking solutions, best practices and forging stronger partnerships.This was the third Council of Environment Ministers of UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies and took place in Douglas, Isle of Man, the meeting was hosted jointly by Geoffrey Boot MHK, the Isle of Man’s Minister for Environment, Food and Agriculture, and Professor John Cortés, Gibraltar’s Minister for Education, Heritage, Environment, Energy and Climate Change and coordinated by the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum (UKOTCF), a non-governmental organization.The Minister was accompanied by Michelle Fulford Gardiner, Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, where they join 13 other UKOTs and CDs, to discuss and focus on the topics of sustainability in the terrestrial and marine environment, climate change, the impact of natural disasters on communities, environmental resilience and the Isle of Man’s designation as the first entire nation UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.Discussions were also facilitated on common opportunities and challenges specific to the group such as:Project Funding;Developmental pressures Vs. Environmental protection;International Conventions representation at COPTrade with the EU (post Brexit) withdrawal of the UK from the European UnionEnergy EfficiencyEnforcement of illegal poachingImpact of plasticsMinister Boot of the Isle of Man, said; “Although very different in character, our islands all boast beautiful environments that are important to our economies and our way of life and we wish to retain and maximize the benefit.”“The meeting was an excellent opportunity to share good practice and discuss common concerns and we learned a lot that we can put into effect in our islands.  It was especially useful to discuss with the UK’s Environment Minister, Dr Thérèse Coffey, how our jurisdictions can work together, and more closely with the UK, to ensure a coherent approach on matters such a plastic waste, ocean acidification and warming.  Minister Coffey invited the group to join the UK’s discussions on these matters.”Professor Cortes of Gibraltar added; “The way our diverse territories work together in mutual support and for the protection and improvement of the environment and quality of life is our main strength and an example to others.”“We are looking at a sustainable future within our territories but have also recognized our responsibility beyond our shores. Most of us are islands and so we are also championing the future of our oceans by joining the stand against plastic pollution and working towards improvement of the biological status of the many kilometers of sea that are the responsibility of the United Kingdom.”Hon. David Osborne, Montserrat’s Minister for Agriculture, Trade, Lands, Housing and Environment, said; “By working as a group, we are much stronger in being able to achieve certain goals. Many of us are facing similar problems and, because of Brexit, much uncertainty remains.   However, if we come together we can put forward ideas for ways to overcome these challenges, much can be achieved.”Dr Mike Pienkowski, Chairman of UKOTCF, commented; “We have for over 30 years brought together groups of practitioners, decision makers and civil society across the Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies to share experiences and encouraged collective endeavour.   This is now more relevant than ever, given the unique set of challenges faced by them especially in the face of climate change and some of the consequences of the UK’s departure from the European Union.   The meeting heard about the work of the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture to meet its international commitments and to support its fishing communities, which is huge interest to other jurisdictions.”Ministers and representatives of the Falkland Islands, Pitcairn and St Helena, joined the meeting via Skype or other remote means.UK Minister of Environment extended an invitation to the group to join her and her team to the Commonwealth Summit in April, as well as the celebration of the International Year of the Reef activities this year, where discussions can continue on these topics.Hon. Higgs and Deputy Permanent Secretary, took advantage of the opportunity to also arrange meetings with Maritime & Ship Registry sector officials, and a site visit to the state of the art energy form waste plant.Hon. Ralph Higgs quantified the meeting as a worthy assembly of like-minded decision makers with a diversity in social, economic, and political structures, but similar challenges.   The Turks & Caicos Islands in the wake of two catastrophic storms realized some destruction of our natural environment, but saw firsthand how the resilience of healthy ecosystems such as the coral reef provides a service that went a long way in protecting our fragile islands.   He reaffirm his government’s commitment to providing sustainable financing for conservation and climate change initiatives, as our environment lies at the foundation of our tourism industry.Press Release: TCIGPhoto credit: David Kneale Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Vancouver family competes on Family Feud

first_imgIt’s not often a family is rewarded for their ability to feud.The Frey family from Vancouver are excitedly awaiting their Thursday appearance on the long-running game show “Family Feud,” airing 5 p.m. on KPDX (Cable 13, Broadcast 49).Jack Frey and his adult sons Matt, Mark and Tom, along with Tom’s wife Angie, traveled to Atlanta last July for the taping, where they competed against another family for a chance to win up to $100,000 and a car.Family Feud first aired in 1976. Though its hosts have rotated over the years — currently it’s comedian Steve Harvey — the format remains about the same. Families compete by guessing how average people responded to a variety of questions and contestants get points for picking the most popular answers.The Freys took a road trip to Tacoma for the audition last year, playing a test game in front of mall shoppers before being interviewed on video. Matt said it was his sister Chris Barker who persuaded the clan to try out, though she didn’t make the final five-person team.“It was her idea and she was the only person that was denied by Family Feud,” he said.Matt said the family agreed to share any winnings with the left out sister.If you’re hoping for a spoiler on how they fared, prepare for disappointment. The family is bound by secrecy until the show airs.last_img read more

Wilmington Maintains Its AA Bond Rating From Standard  Poors

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington officials were pleased to retain its AA+ bond rating from Standard & Poor’s, but they aren’t satisfied.After a rating review conference call on May 16, Standard & Poor’s determined Wilmington would remain at AA+ status. Town officials were hoping to upgrade to AAA.“We made a very strong case as to why Wilmington is a sold community financially. Quite frankly, we were looking to pursue an upgrade to a AAA community,” said Town Manager Jeff Hull. “At the end of the day, Standard & Poor’s was very complimentary on many aspects of our operation, but we did retain the AA+ rating, which we’ve had for some time now.”Town Accountant Mike Morris said Standard & Poor’s noted many positives in their review, including:Strong local economyStrong financial management policiesConservative budgetingLong-term budget forecastingStrong liquidity with healthy free cash reservesLow debt thresholdValue of industrial properties in townBroad diverse business economy in town, including Analog expansionRespectable “Average Buying Income”Creation of a Master Plan Facilities Study“Kudos to the Town Manager and his team for getting a AA+ again,” responded Selectman Chair Kevin Caira. “They’re probably a little disappointed, but a AA+ a big positive for the town, without a doubt. This is really a glowing report.”“I really appreciate both [the Town Manager and Town Accountant] not being satisfied with the AA+,” added Selectman Greg Bendel. “I appreciate you striving for a AAA rating and I’m confident we can get to it.”Selectmen Mike McCoy and Ed Loud offered brief positive comments as well.While the town is addressing its retirement and OPEB (other post-employment benefits) liabilities by establishing reserve funds and annually paying both amounts down, Standard & Poor’s feel sit could be doing more in this area.“S&P was looking not only at the town’s plan to set aside funds to pay off its liabilities, but steps being taken on the other end to reduce the cost of its liabilities,” noted Hull, he pointed out that the town recently enacted a change, which goes into effect on January 1, 2019, where retired employees currently on a particular health insurance plan (MEDEX Plan 3) will be transitioned to a less expensive plan (MEDEX Plan 2). “Next time we go through a review, we’ll get credit for that.”“Retirement [costs] are our biggest burden and why we didn’t receive an AAA rating,” Morris agreed.In a related moved, Selectmen authorized the issuance of a 15-year bond in the amount of $5.3 million to cover the costs associated with the creation of the Yentile Farm Recreational Facility, a Fire Pumper, the Water Main Replacement project on Middlesex Avenue, and the Water Main Replacement project on Ballardvale Street.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Pocomoke Co Police Chief Gets Probation

first_imgBy Stephen Janis and Taya Graham, Special to the AFRODespite efforts by prosecutors to elicit jail time for Pocomoke’s first black police chief Kelvin Sewell, a Worcester County Judge ruled that the former Baltimore Homicide Supervisors would serve probation for a misdemeanor misconduct conviction tied to a 2014 accident investigation.Prior to sentencing by Judge Newton Jackson III supporters of Sewell filled the courtroom and made impassioned pleas on his behalf, according to several attendees who spoke the AFRO.“I’m just glad people showed up today,” Pocomoke Pastor Ronnie White said.  “I think the judge actually listened to what we had to say.”Kelvin Sewell, a former Baltimore Police Department homicide detective, was the first Black police chief of Pocomoke City, Md., on the state’s Eastern Shore. His tenure was cut short in the minds of many because of racist policies. (Courtesy Photo)Sewell was convicted of misconduct in office by a nearly all white jury in April 2019.  The charges stem from a 2014 accident involving two parked cars.  State Prosecutor Emmitt Davitt sought a six-month sentence for Sewell.But the investigation itself has been controversial, with Sewell’s attorneys arguing the probe occurred after Sewell was fired by the Pocomoke City council amid allegations of racism.The accident occurred in May 2014 when Pocomoke resident Doug Matthews hit two parked cars driving home from a meeting of an African-American chapter of the Masons.He testified he momentarily fell asleep at the wheel. The impact caused his front tire to come off, but Matthews continued driving three blocks home and called police.Insurance covered the damage. And there was no bodily injury from the crash. But investigators zeroed in on the decision not to charge Matthews as part of a criminal conspiracy.The key to the prosecution case was another Pocomoke City officer named Tanya Barnes. She told the jury Sewell’s behavior that night was unusual.However, during pretrial motions Sewell’s defense tried to introduce emails sent to his civil attorneys by Barnes claiming that the criminal investigation was suspect.“Chief Sewell’s firing was illegal, and I think they’re trying to build a case of corruption and use me as the scapegoat,” Barnes wrote in an email.The judge did not allow the email to be introduced.The sentence is the second time Sewell has faced a Worcester County judge after being convicted.  The original 2016 conviction was overturned by the Court of Special Appeals after they ruled, he did not receive a fair trial.But the most recent iteration provoked a strong reaction from Sewell supporters, who said his signature style of community policing transformed the town and thus the ongoing prosecution was unwarranted.“I started crying,” Michelle Lucas, a former Pocomoke resident told the AFRO.  “I was so scared he was going to go to jail for something he didn’t do.”For Lucas, watching the trial during which almost all defense motions were denied has shaken her trust in criminal justice system.“Not only has this rocked my whole faith in law enforcement, but it rocked my faith in the justice system too.”Looming over the sentencing was the continued fallout over Sewell’s 2015 termination.The council was silent about the reason.  But Sewell recently settled with city officials for $450,000 and commitment to a consent decree to reform racially biased employment practices.Still, for Pocomoke residents the damage brought by the protracted prosecutions has inflicted deep collateral damage.   A town that has not been safe, nor hospitable since his termination.“I told the judge chief did everything by the book.  He was always a man who was committed to the law.  He spent a lot time out in our community,” White said.“And now that he’s gone community policing has just stopped.”last_img read more

Microsoft redesigns the Xbox 360 offers 2 free games each month via

first_imgWhen Microsoft kicked off its E3 event today we all thought the focus was going to be on the Xbox One. But the Xbox 360 has received some attention, too.Microsoft has decided to give the 360 one final redesign before they move on to the next console. From today, you can go out and buy a brand new Xbox 360 that is styled just like the Xbox One. At the same time, it is “smaller, sleeker, and just as quiet” as the existing Slim model.If you already own an Xbox 360, which let’s face it most of you do, Microsoft is pushing Xbox Live gold memberships, too. Your Live account will work across the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, so the more accounts Microsoft can activate they clearly think the more gamers will make the switch to the new machine.With that in mind, new and existing Live Gold subscribers will be entitled to two free game downloads every single month. The full line-up of games that will be included in that offer has not been divulged yet, but Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed 2 were both mentioned on stage. Think of it like what Sony offers PlayStation Plus members.last_img read more
