Category: fdtnwcmtdulfdxvp Nokia US deal falls through

first_img Tags: NULL Nokia US deal falls through KCS-content Nokia’s woes continued yesterday with the announcement that a deal to launch its X7 smartphone on US carrier AT&T has fallen through. The news is a blow for the Finnish firm, which is desperate to push its new range of high-end smartphones. It is understood Nokia lost confidence in the US firm, believing the phone would not receive enough marketing and subsidisation from the carrier. Nokia’s failures in the smartphone market have largely been blamed on its Symbian operating system, which critics argue falls short of Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS4. The Finnish firm hopes to combat this with the imminent release of its new MeeGo operating system it hopes will compliment acclaimed new hardware such as its Nokia N8.

Buying stocks after a market crash may sound like a risky strategy for anyone who is seeking to build a portfolio valued at over a million. It could produce paper losses in the short run due to the unpredictability still present across the stock market.However, a market crash provides investors with the opportunity to buy stocks at low prices. It may also strengthen the competitive positions of dominant businesses in a range of industries, and allow them to generate high returns in the coming years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As such, investing in the stock market today could increase your chances of making a million in the long run.Buying in a market crashMany investors adopt a strategy where they aim to buy stocks when they are priced at low levels. They then seek to hold them until such a time as they trade at a much higher price.The main problem with that strategy is that the periods when stock prices are at their lowest have historically coincided with economic downturns. At such times, risks facing investors are at their highest.For example, the most recent notable market crash prior to that experienced in 2020 occurred in 2008/09. At that time, a great number of companies traded at prices that had not been seen for many years.Following the market crash, a large proportion of them delivered successful stock price recoveries. However, many investors did not buy stocks when they traded at low prices due to the short-term risks they faced. This meant that they were unable to access the wide margins of safety that were on offer for a limited time, with their returns in the following years likely to have suffered as a result.Although at the present time there are significant risks facing investors over the short run, in the long term the stock market is likely to recover. Therefore, buying a diverse range of companies during this market crash could allow investors to fulfil the first part of their ‘buy low/sell high’ strategy.Industry positionsThe recent market crash could also cause stronger companies within a specific industry to improve upon their competitive positions. For example, those businesses that are better equipped to survive a prolonged economic downturn may gain market share. This may allow them to generate higher returns in the coming years.As such, investors who can not only purchase cheap stocks, but also the highest-quality companies in an industry, may improve their chances of generating high returns in the coming years.The market crash may highlight weaknesses in companies that had previously been overlooked by investors, such as high debt levels and inefficient business models. Investors may now focus their capital on the strongest companies within a sector that offer the most appealing risk/reward ratios. This could boost their returns over the long run.Millionaire potentialRisks may continue to be present over the coming months across the stock market. However, buying high-quality businesses with dominant market positions while they trade at low prices could be a sound strategy. It may boost your portfolio’s returns and increase your chances of making a million over the coming years.

His camera was seized and then returned without its videotape. Al-Jazeera producer Mohamed El Daba and one of the station’s reporters, Lina Gahadban, were detained and questioned at length before being freed.Reuters TV cameraman Ahmed Fahmy, Qatari TV cameraman Ahmed Salah and Salah’s soundman, Yehia Galal, all had similar experiences.

The correspondent of Top Radio and several TV stations, he was beaten to death when spotted filming their attack on a suspect’s home.“We are deeply shocked by this barbaric behaviour that resulted in the death of a journalist who as at the scene just to cover what was going on,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His murder could have been avoided if the crowd had taken the time to identify him.”The press freedom organisation added: “This incident highlights the frequency to which journalists are exposed to violence because they are on the front line of demonstrations, conflicts or events that get out of control and are seen as unwanted witnesses. We urge the Ugandan authorities to deal severely with those responsible, so that such incidents do not recur.”The events of 10 September began when dozens of motorcyclists gathered to protest against the previous day’s murder of fellow-motorcyclist Eddie Sengooba. They went to the home of a suspect in the murder and began to attack it, but turned on Kiggundu when they saw he was filming them. Accusing him of gathering evidence for the police, they beat him unconscious despite his attempts to explain that he was a journalist. He died while being taken to hospital.The police are investigating but district police chief Alex Twebaze told Reporters Without Borders that so far no arrests have been made.

The plea also sought directions to the State Governments to designate the District Medical Officer to be appropriate authority for implementation of this protocol and strict adherence to this protocol to avoid trauma and distress. A division Bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan and R S Reddy observed that these issues are already being taken up by the Court in the suo motu public interest petition and the petitioner should intervene through a proper intervention application. Advocate Manoj V George, appearing for the petitioner however submitted that his petition was nog adversarial, and the petitioner was denied the right to his mother’s dignified burial. The Petitioner, G. Manohar in this case was aggrieved by the callous action and negligence of Manipal Hospital, Dwarka (New Delhi), who without any respect to the him and his family, denied a decent burial to his mother by handing over the dead body of the Petitioner’s mother in the most undignified manner without any checking or verification, to a total stranger. “He now has to live with the hard and bizarre truth that his mother’s body was mistaken for some other Covid-19 victim and was given away for cremation by someone else denying him the sacred rights of doing the last rites to his mother. ” – the plea read. The Petitioner filed the present plea as he believes that this traumatic incident has happened due to the absence of a proper Mortal Remains Management Disposal Protocol in the country due to which such a disastrous and irreversible act has taken place. The complete lack of a proper system of checks and balances is leading to hospitals taking the excuse of being overburdened with dead bodies. The Petitioner’s experience has been the most harrowing and therefore he hopes that this is never repeated with anyone who has to bury or cremate their loved one. The Petitioner was also aggrieved by the fact that his mother’s body was so carelessly stored without proper labelling or identification, with other highly infected Covid-19 bodies in the hospital’s mortuary and due to a mix-up of bodies, was handed over to a stranger and his family for cremation. As a result of the hospital’s complete disregard and negligence, the Petitioner and his family did not get to see or bury the mortal remains of his mother according to their religious rites and rituals. The plea contended that the hospital’s act is clearly violative of the petitioner’s mother’s Right to Life including her Right to Dignity and dignity in death as guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. The hospital’s act is irreversible and with no possibility of closure for the Petitioner and his family as they not only lost their mother but also lost the right to bury her. Stressing on the need for a clear Mortal Remains Management Disposal Protocol, the plea highlighted the callousness of hospitals during the time of Covid-19 pandemic with reputed hospitals charging heavy fees and charges for treatment with no basic protocols in place, leading to unbearable pain and lifelong agony to the relatives of the deceased. According to the petitioner, Manipal hospital did not show any remorse for its act knowing fully well that such indignity in death was afforded to Petitioner’s mother due to their negligent actions and due to the lack of a proper Mortal Remains Storage and Management Protocol in the State of Delhi. When the hospital was approached, they grudgingly stated that there may have been a possible mix-up of bodies. ” The utter casualness with which this sensitive issue was handled by the Respondent hospital authorities was proof of the fact that they felt they were above the law and that since there was no protocol that was in place, there was no violation and it was most harrowing for the Petitioner to watch the high-handedness of the Respondent hospital as it defended its callousness instead of feeling remorseful at their actions and had the audacity to ask the Petitioner to take the body that was ‘made available’ to him and to bury it according to their rites and rituals. The Respondent hospital then fabricated a story that another family that had come to collect the mortal remains of their mother, had given gangajal to that body both at the cremation site and at the Respondent hospital. This story was concocted by the Respondent hospital authorities to wash their hands of this grave error that could be not reversed and to foist the blame back on the Petitioner that it was he who was mistaken in identifying the body.” – the plea read. The plea cited the Supreme Court’s order in the case of Pt Parmanand Katara, Advocate vs UOI and Anor (1995) where it was held that even a dead person has a right to dignity and fair treatment in respect of his dead body under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. Another judgement cited is the Top Court’s order in the matter of Common Cause vs Union of India (2018) holding that the right to die with dignity is a fundamental right and therefore an integral part of Article 21. The plea further stated that while there are various speciality and multi-speciality hospitals with separate departments putting all their energies to preserve life, there is no dedicated department to deal with the person once he has died. The body of the deceased ought to be treated with utmost dignity and not simply as a goods by the administrative authorities of an institution, and all care should be taken to ensure that there is a dignified burial, cremation or funeral arrangement based on the religious beliefs of the dearly departed. The plea was drawn by filed by Advocate Shilpa Liza George and drawn by Advocates Manoj V. George and Renjith Philip, on behalf of the petitioner, Mr. G.

Category: fdtnwcmtdulfdxvp Man arrested and charged over missing Amish teenage girl who vanished last month

first_imgiStock/ijoe84By: JON HAWORTH, ABC News (EAST LAMPETER TOWNSHIP, Penn.) — LAA Pennsylvania man has been charged with the kidnapping of an Amish teenager who has been missing since last month and has yet to be found.East Lampeter Township Police in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, charged 34-year-old Justo Smoker on Friday with felony kidnapping and misdemeanor false imprisonment while investigators are still actively searching for the whereabouts of 18-year-old Linda Stoltzfoos whom they believe was harmed following her abduction after she was reported missing on June 21.“Smoker became a person of interest in the kidnapping after police received information about a red/orange vehicle seen in the Gap area on the afternoon of the abduction,” said the East Lampeter Township Police Department in a press release. “Multiple witnesses in the area reported seeing an Amish female in the passenger seat of a vehicle driven by a male. Witness descriptions of the driver and vehicle are consistent with Smoker and his vehicle.”Stoltzfoos was reported missing on the night of June 21 by her father when she did not return from a youth group she was supposed to attend. Investigators have confirmed that she did not ever make it to the social gathering that night.Authorities have obtained and viewed surveillance footage that shows Stoltzfoos on Beechdale Road near the community of Bird-In-Hand, which would have been her walking route back home after church, as well as a red Kia Rio involved in the abduction that fit the description of Smoker’s vehicle registration and bumper stickers.According to the East Lampeter Township Police Department, Smoker was arrested on Friday night at the place of his employment and arraigned on Saturday morning on the two charges of felony kidnapping and misdemeanor false imprisonment.“District Judge Joshua Keller, at arraignment, made Smoker ineligible for bail, citing the nature of charges and the ongoing investigation,” said the East Lampeter Township Police Department.Investigators searched a rural location in Ronks, Pennsylvania, on Friday evening which is where they believe Stoltzfoos may have been taken following her abduction and authorities found articles of clothing buried in a wooded area that they believe belong to Stoltzfoos.“East Lampeter Township police is being assisted by multiple agencies, to include the FBI, Pennsylvania State Police and Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office,” police said.Authorities are asking for anyone with clues or information to come forward as well as people who might have seen Smoker or his red Kia Rio sedan around the time Stoltzfoos was abducted.Stoltzfoos weighs approximately 125 pounds and is 5’10” with blue eyes and brown hair, according to the FBI’s missing person report, and was last seen wearing a tan dress, white apron and black head covering.The FBI is now offering a reward of $10,000 for information leading to her recovery.
