HAITIANS TRY ILLEGAL ENTRY CHRISTMAS DAY


first_img Bi-lateral talks with Bahamas to resume, UK gives green light to high-level TCI delegation Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 30 Dec 2014 – Both the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos had a Christmas delivery of boat loads of Haitian migrants trying to illegally enter the countries, further solidifying the notion that the two nations must partner to fend off the constant flow of Haitian illegals. In the TCI, the one vessel was intercepted thanks again to the detection of the coastal radar and the 65 Haitians were immediately processed and repatriated. There were 52 males and 13 females on the boat which was intercepted minutes to midnight on Christmas Day; captured roughly six miles off South Dock by the marine branch. Exactly a year before, there was a similar attempt to enter, though that interception was marred with the death of 17 Haitians who lost their lives, when the boat capsized.

Game of Thrones fans are dying for a season 8 trailer


first_img 20 Photos Some people are still trying to predict when the trailer will arrive, despite our previous failures for the Super Bowl and Oscars. Film and TV editor Emmy Griffiths crunched the numbers and thinks we’ll get the trailer before the end of this week. “I have no means been obsessively checking old correlations between GoT trailers and premiere dates to reach this conclusion,” she jokes. Game of Thrones HBO 0 Cookies are coming. pic.twitter.com/aTPjU4l4gS— Oreo Cookie (@Oreo) February 23, 2019 Enlarge ImageCan we get a trailer already? Helen Sloane/HBO We could hear it, like dragon wings pounding the air. It was time. First we hoped the Super Bowl would bring the trailer. Then Oscars night came and went. Now it’s Feb. 26 and there’s still no real trailer for the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Fans of ice and fire aren’t taking this well.Game of Thrones returns for season 8 on April 14, which is why fans are getting antsy. It’s so close. One Twitter use compared the number of trailers we get for Marvel products with those we get for Game of Thrones. There’s a bit of a disparity.  The official Game of Thrones account responded with “House Oreo.” Now that sounds like a house worth belonging to.HBO could get away with never releasing a trailer for the final season. Nobody is going to boycott the show because they didn’t get enough advance footage of angry dragons, frozen dead people and sword fights. So pour yourself a Bud Light and twist open an Oreo while you wait. HBO must be sending the trailer out by raven and it got lost somewhere over Westeros.  Twitter user Gotmemesworld meme-ified our plight by highlighting the meager teases we’ve gotten so far. It also reminds us of the collective sigh of exacerbation we all spewed when HBO and Bud Light dropped a weird Super Bowl commercial featuring a beer knight and no real season 8 information.

SpiderMan Far From Home postcredits scenes explained


first_imgSpider-Man: Far From Home spoilers sneakin’ up on you like Peter Parker in his Stealth Suit. Jay Maidment/Sony Pictures Spider-Man: Far From Home brings Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a close with a joyous teen adventure. It also returns to the grand tradition of postcredits scenes after Avengers: Endgame offered only an audio Easter egg of Tony Stark forging his armor in the first Iron Man.Far From Home’s first postcredits scene is essential viewing, and the second is fun but will make you rethink the entire movie.If you haven’t seen Far From Home yet, be warned that you’re about to get caught in a web of spoilers.spoilers-mcuScene 1: Mysterio’s revenge and a glorious returnSpider-Man (Tom Holland) swings a flustered MJ (Zendaya) through the Manhattan skyline and drops her off at 8th Avenue and 33rd Street, where a massive screen on the side of Madison Square Garden shows a report from TheDailyBugle.net.A doctored video makes it look like Spidey killed Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) during the climactic battle in London — the illusionist’s recorded testimony says Spidey is a villain from another universe who was controlling the drones wreaking havoc on the UK capital. How to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film in the right order Spider-Man: Far From Home director talks postcredit scene… As for where he got the video, it was probably from Mysterio’s assistant William Ginter Riva (Peter Billingsley), who escaped with a hard drive after Spidey foiled his boss’ plan in London. We saw earlier in the movie that Riva worked for Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) way back in the first Iron Man, so he’s had two villain employers.It’s also hard to know if Mysterio is really dead — he could’ve used his special-effects wizardry to fake that too.Director Jon Watts told CNET about revealing Peter’s identity and bringing Jameson back.”We knew it had to be on TV for the whole world to see. And we were like what, what news outlet would that be that would publish something like this?” he said.”It felt like it would be the Daily Bugle and if it’s the Daily Bugle, it’s gotta be J Jonah Jameson. And once we got to that point, there’s no question in anyone’s mind, it’s gotta be J.K. Simmons.”Watts noted that the actor’s approach to the character was pretty similar to the one he took for the Raimi movies.”But now he’s more recognizable as a real-world person than he was in those films. So I don’t know; it’s kind of interesting to look at how the world has changed around him,” he said in our interview.There’s no buzz cut, no cigar, no suspenders. But for the most part he’s still the spirit of J Jonah Jameson — I wondered like, was he a newspaper man? What’s happened? There are so many questions. spiderman-far-from-home-nick-fury-maria-hillNothing is as it seems with Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Sony Pictures Scene 2: Nick Fury’s vacationWe discover that this movie’s SHIELD Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) weren’t the Fury and Hill we know and love.Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and his wife Soren (Sharon Blynn), a pair of shapeshifting Skrulls, pretended to be Fury and Hill. You might remember this couple being reunited during Captain Marvel, which takes place years prior to Far From Home in the MCU timeline.They were working for the real Fury, who ordered them to get the EDITH glasses to Peter. Talos apparently fell for Beck’s ruse too.The real Fury was chilling on a beach … that turns out to be a virtual reality (VR) simulation on a Skrull vessel somewhere in outer space. Perhaps he needed a vacation after being restored to life in Avengers: Endgame. We don’t see the real Hill. Hopefully she’s enjoying a little leisure time too.nullTurns out Talos (seen in Captain Marvel) plays a major role in Far From Home. Chuck Zlotnick/Marvel Studios What it meansFury and Hill were actually disguised Skrulls for the whole movie, echoing the Secret Invasion comic storyline where Skrulls secretly replaced humans. This is like a benign version of that sinister takeover, but it could foreshadow a future MCU storyline.There are a few hints about that the SHIELD agents aren’t all they seem during the movie too. Fury has an unusual reaction when Peter mentions Captain Marvel.”Don’t invoke her name,” he says.This reverential tone would be out of character for Fury, but is absolutely in character for Talos — she reunited him with his family back in the ’90s. Performances by Jackson and Smulders are a little flat during the movie too; this revelation makes their acting even more impressive.Maybe Talos was responsible for that Fury poster goof too.It does raise the question of what the Skrulls have been doing since the events of Captain Marvel, when they left Earth to search for a habitable planet where their race could live. Maybe even more people have been replaced by the shapeshifters. Earlier in the movie, Talos-Fury also makes a passing mention of “Kree sleeper cells” — in reference to the race that wiped out the Skrull homeworld. He and Soren could be on Earth to hunt the genocidal aliens.Watts wouldn’t reveal too much about any grander meaning behind this scene.”I don’t want to say anything about where we’re going next but, I mean, having seen Captain Marvel and now that the world knows about Fury and the Skrulls and all of that, it’s just another thing to draw from in this crazy, complicated, rich universe that’s the MCU,” he said in our interview. So Far From Home How to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film in the right order 2:17 Then Daily Bugle host J. Jonah Jameson (J. K. Simmons) appears on screen to hail Mysterio as “the greatest superhero of all time” and prepares us for more.”But that’s not all, folks. Here’s the real blockbuster — brace yourselves, you might wanna sit down,” he says.Mysterio’s final testimony reveals to the world Peter Parker’s secret identity as Spider-Man, leaving Spidey and MJ understandably shocked. null Far From Home review: A perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue Spider-Man: Far From Home is the future of the MCU Far From Home poster goof unleashes Samuel L. Jackson’s Fury Share your voicecenter_img TV and Movies Comics What it meansSpidey’s been outed to the world and framed for murder, meaning his entire life is turned upside down as we head into Phase 4. It’s a dark, stunning contrast to the end of Iron Man, where Tony Stark revealed his own superhero identity to the press and a nice reference to the comics’ Civil War storyline (which saw Peter outing himself at Tony’s urging).The general public’s also been fed Mysterio’s lies about the multiverse — we’ll see how they react to that.jjj-raimiverseJ. Jonah Jameson, as he was seen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. His MCU counterpart doesn’t have the buzzcut. Sony Pictures Even more importantly, this scene marks the glorious return of Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. He played the cigar-chomping Daily Bugle boss in all three Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, but those aren’t part of the MCU and this isn’t the same character — note the lack of a buzzcut.From this glimpse, the MCU’s Jameson appears quite different to the Raimi-verse’s traditional angry newspaperman. Here, he’s more of an Alex Jones-type conspiracy theorist (mirroring his role as an angry podcaster in last year’s PS4 game) — one who was willing to paint a bullseye on a teenage boy based on a choppy video. 26 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Tags Originally published July 1.Update, July 8: Adds comments from Jon Watts.

Bangladeshi girl pleads guilty to knifing Australian


first_imgMomena Shoma. File PhotoA young Bangladeshi woman who stabbed an Australian man in the name of the Islamic State has lifted her niqab veil in court to plead guilty to intentionally engaging in a terrorist act, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.Momena Shoma, 25, refused to stand in the dock when Australian Supreme Court justice Elizabeth Hollingworth entered the court on Thursday, but lifted her facial covering when the judge asked to confirm her identity.She then pleaded guilty to engaging in a terrorist act, after she stabbed Roger Singaravelu on 9 February, as he napped next to his five-year-old daughter in the rumpus room of his Mill Park home.Singaravelu woke when he felt piercing pain in his neck and was able to wrestle the kitchen knife off Shoma, before he dashed out of the room with his daughter and got help in the street.Momena, a Bangladeshi national who came to Australia to study at La Trobe University only met Singaravelu the night before she attacked him, having moved into his family’s home to lodge, according to the New South Wales-based English-language daily.She arrived in Australia at the start of February and spent her first week at another family’s home.Momena was also charged with attempted murder but that charge was withdrawn.Documents released by the court say she intentionally engaged in a terrorist act, with the motive of ‘‘advancing a political, religious or ideological cause, namely violent jihad’’.She refused to stand when justice Hollingworth left the court and was remanded in custody to return to court for a plea hearing in January.She put the veil back over her face after entering her plea.Singaravelu was in court on Thursday, the Australian newspaper adds.The day after the stabbing, Momena told police she attacked Singaravelu ‘‘because of, ah, the order of the Islamic State’’, according to a record of interview that was among documents released last month by Melbourne Magistrates Court.She told detectives the terror organisation was calling on ‘‘everyone, even the woman. So I just felt obligated, and it was like a burden on me. Yeah, I just had to do it.‘‘I had to do it … it could have been anyone, it’s not specifically him. He just seemed like a very easy target since he was sleeping, so yeah, and I had to push myself. I wouldn’t even hurt a rat. This, I just felt like if I don’t do it I will be sinful, I will be punished by Allah.’’Singaravelu told police he was having a nap next to his daughter on a mattress when he felt pain in his neck, and saw the woman he knew as Suma pushing a knife into him.‘‘I thought that I was dreaming as I felt a sharp pain in my neck. I woke up and started screaming,’’ he said.‘‘I saw Suma right next to me, she was on her knees with both of her hands on a knife that was in my neck.‘‘Suma had such an intense look. Her eyes were so intense. She was saying ’Allah Akbar’, she kept on saying this over and over.’’ Singaravelu was later treated for a one-centimetre wound to his neck and cuts to his fingers.He told police he heard a friend went inside the house and found Momena standing in the kitchen, where, according to the friend, she claimed ‘‘it was a mission and that she had to do what she had to do’’.Momena told police she bore Singaravelu no personal grudge, but felt a ‘‘little bit burdenless’’ after the attack. She prepared for it by slashing a pillow at the other family’s home, and in the hours before the stabbing watched Islamic State propaganda videos which featured beheadings.Asked by a detective whether she travelled to Australia to study or hurt someone in the name of Islamic State, she replied, ‘‘The later one.’’last_img read more


Researchers uncover reason why mole rats are oblivious to acid pain

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that because they live so close together underground, carbon dioxide builds up in their den to levels that would kill most other mammals, and because oxygen levels are low too, an environment exists that would prove painful for most animals due to acid buildup in tissues. Mole rats are impervious to pain from acid though, a fact that has intrigued scientists for years. Most assumed they simply had different types of nociceptors than other mammals. But that’s not the case, as Gary Lewin and his colleagues from the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin write in their paper published in Science. Instead, it appears the mole rats have a species specific variant of a certain sodium channel.In order to feel things such as acid burn, animals have sensory neurons in their tissues, the tips of which have channels called nociceptors which control the flow of sensory information to the neuron, which is responsible for sending electrical signals to the brain. Channels can let things through, or slam shut blocking things off depending on the cause of the stimulation. In the case of acid, nociceptors for most mammals are stimulated and partially close, but let enough of the sensory information pass through to allow the brain to feel the pain acidic substances create. Oddly enough, the team found that to be the case with mole rats too, which meant they had to look elsewhere. In this case that meant looking at another type of sodium channel, called NaV1.7, which they found became blocked when exposed to acid.This new discovery by the team means they have discovered that an animal doesn’t have to have a unique type of nociceptor in order to be free from acid pain, all that’s necessary is a change in the NaV1.7 channel that directs the flow of information passed on to neuron below. This is quite a find because it could lead to ways to alleviate certain kinds of pain that people experience, such as inflammation from arthritis. Journal information: Science More information: The Molecular Basis of Acid Insensitivity in the African Naked Mole-Rat, Science, 16 December 2011: Vol. 334 no. 6062 pp. 1557-1560. DOI: 10.1126/science.1213760ABSTRACTAcid evokes pain by exciting nociceptors; the acid sensors are proton-gated ion channels that depolarize neurons. The naked mole-rat (Heterocephalus glaber) is exceptional in its acid insensitivity, but acid sensors (acid-sensing ion channels and the transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 ion channel) in naked mole-rat nociceptors are similar to those in other vertebrates. Acid inhibition of voltage-gated sodium currents is more profound in naked mole-rat nociceptors than in mouse nociceptors, however, which effectively prevents acid-induced action potential initiation. We describe a species-specific variant of the nociceptor sodium channel NaV1.7, which is potently blocked by protons and can account for acid insensitivity in this species. Thus, evolutionary pressure has selected for an NaV1.7 gene variant that tips the balance from proton-induced excitation to inhibition of action potential initiation to abolish acid nociception.center_img Study: Why cold is such a pain © 2011 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — Mole rats aren’t the prettiest things; living underground as they do, they more resemble Gollum from the Lord of the Rings trilogy than other rats or mice. But they’re interesting to scientists nonetheless because they have some interesting traits. They live for twenty years for example, and none of them ever get cancer.
