TCI Police report two new instances of the use of gun to get cash and phones. A gun pointed at a woman’s head and money demanded as three males, dressed in dark coloured clothing attacked her and a male companion while walking home in the area of Pablo’s Laundromat on Leeward Highway in Provo.The trio got away with cell phones and some money. Just hours before, in the very same area, a man reported that he was asleep when he was awoken by a noise coming from his bathroom; before he knew it he was held at gunpoint in his home by a man of short stature who demanded money. The robber, who is believed to have come through the window, took the man’s wallet with bank cards and some cash and his cell phone. That incident happened around 1:30am.Police need help in cracking down on crime, call in any information you have.

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says he expects a difficult game as they travel to the Etihad for Sunday’s Manchester derby.Matic believes United should focus on their game rather than concentrating on City’s attacking threat.“I expect a very difficult game,“ Matic told United website.”They are a very good side, they play good football, they score a lot of goals in every game, but we also have our qualities which we have to use.Report: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“We have to stop them in their attacks, there is a way to do it and the manager knows that. We will prepare for the game.“I expect a hard game but, in a derby, everything is possible, and we will be ready for that.“I think that we believe more that we are a good team, we have also improved and mentally we are stronger.“I think in the last four league games we have three wins and a draw, so this gives you more confidence, but we deserve that and will try to continue in this way.”
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has called Craig Levein childish after the Hearts boss directed his rant at him, accusing him of hypocrisy over referee’s criticism.He adds that experience thought him one doesn’t achieve anything meaningful from criticizing refs.“I have been in the game a long time and I find the reaction to what I said about Hearts strange,” said McInnes, according to Evening Times.“I find it irrational and childish. Is the language strange? I think people can make their own opinions on that.”“I find it really disappointing from someone who has done so much in the game and who I have the highest of regard for.”“Craig has intimated that I phoned him and is trying to cast aspersions.”“Let’s be clear about this – he phoned me.”“He said I was crying my eyes out but who made the call? He was the one complaining and he hasn’t stopped moaning since.”News: Pereira has gone on loan from United to Hearts George Patchias – August 13, 2019 The young Portuguese goalkeeper has secured a loan deal for the remainder of the season to Hearts of the Scottish Premier League.According to a…“We played Rangers and then next day I was on the school run when the phone rang and it was Craig.”“I was still so pleased with my team from winning the game. It was a private phone call and he has put it into the public domain. There is more I could say about that call but I won’t.”“He said to me ‘what are we going to do about these referees’ and my reaction to that was you carry on your crusade but for me over 11 years as a manager, you don’t get any benefit from criticising refs.”“The call came from Craig, which I found surprising because he’s not someone I normally speak to. There was distortion of what happened. Why would I call Craig to complain about referees? You need to ask him why he phoned me to complain about refs?”“It’s disappointing, I want to concentrate on my team but he decided to create this by putting a private conversation into the public domain.”“I felt it was even from the last game at Tynecastle, where they got two penalties but he wanted four or five that day. Last Saturday I felt we were hands-down the better team but the first question I was asked was about Craig saying he felt they should have had a couple of penalties.”

But the migrants who crossed Mexico in a caravan may face a long legal path.Caravan organizers said eight members of the group criticized by President Donald Trump that traveled from southern Mexico to the border city of Tijuana were allowed in to be interviewed by asylum officers, but U.S. Customs and Border Protection did not provide a number.About 140 others were still waiting in Mexico to turn themselves in at San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing, the nation’s busiest, said Alex Mensing, project organizer for Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which is leading the caravan.“The spirits are high, there was good news for everybody,” Mensing said on the Mexican side of the crossing, moments after learning that some were allowed in.U.S. attorneys who volunteered advice in Tijuana last week warned the Central Americans that parents may be separated from their children and be detained for many months while their asylum cases are pending.Asylum-seekers are typically held up to three days at the border and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. If they pass initial screenings by asylum officers, they may be detained or released with ankle monitors while their cases wind through immigration court, which can take years.Nearly 80 percent of asylum-seekers passed the initial screening from October through December, but few are likely to win asylum.The denial rate for El Salvadorans seeking asylum was 79 percent from 2012 to 2017, according to asylum outcome information from Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Action Clearinghouse. Hondurans were close behind with a 78 percent denial rate, followed Guatemalans at 75 percent.Trump administration officials have railed against what they call “legal loopholes” and “catch-and-release” policies that allow people seeking asylum to be freed while their cases are adjudicated. The president tweeted Monday that the caravan “shows how weak & ineffective U.S. immigration laws are.”Attorney General Jeff Sessions has pledged to send more immigration judges to the border if needed and threatened criminal prosecution. On Monday, the Justice Department said it filed illegal entry charges against 11 people identified as caravan members.U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it processed hundreds of asylum-seekers in the previous week, many of them Mexican, which contributed to a bottleneck that led inspectors to turn away caravan members since they arrived late Sunday afternoon.Asylum-seekers did not appear to be thrown off the by the delay.Elin Orrellana, a 23-year-old pregnant woman from El Salvador, said she is fleeing the violent MS-13 street gang, a favorite target of both Sessions and Trump because of their brutal killings in communities in the United States. She said her older sister had been killed by the gang in El Salvador, so she is attempting to join other family members in the Kansas City area.“Fighting on is worth it,” she said.Customs and Border Protection has room for about 300 people at the San Diego border crossing.“As in the past when we’ve had to limit the number of people we can bring in for processing at a given time, we expect that this will be a temporary situation,” the agency said.During a surge of Haitian arrivals at the San Diego crossing in 2016, Customs and Border Protection required people to wait more than five weeks in Mexico. Since then, smaller upticks of Mexican asylum-seekers have caused delays of several hours.

Avengers EndgameTwitterAvengers: Endgame has created history at the Indian box office and has now become the first Hollywood film to enter Rs 300 crore club.Released across 2845 screens in India, the 22nd film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, shattered all the myths around the number of screens and the day of its release to become an All Time Blockbuster. The movie will cross Rs 300 crore on its second Sunday which talks a great deal what Indian audience is really craving for. And that is nothing but a good well-made entertainer that is worth spending their hard-earned money on.After achieving the most coveted feat, Avengers: Endgame has joined Rs 300 crore club along with Indian films like PK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, Dangal, Tiger Zinda Hai, Padmaavat, Sanju and Baahubali 2 (Hindi – which is the only film to cross Rs 500 crore mark).Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to share Avengers: Endgame box office collection in India, “#AvengersEndgame remains the first choice of moviegoers… Biz took a slight dip on [second] Fri, but gathered speed on [second] Sat… Will cross ₹ 300 cr today [Sun]… [Week 2] Fri 12.50 cr, Sat 18 cr. Total: ₹ 290.90 cr Nett BOC. India biz. Gross BOC: ₹ 346.31 cr.”Looking at Avengers: Endgame’s unprecedented run at the Indian box office, Taran Adarsh expressed his views on why most of the Indian films are struggling to earn money at the box office in today’s time.”One of the key reasons is, we aren’t giving the audience what *they* want: Entertainment. Two years ago, #Baahubali2 [#Hindi version] crossed ₹ 500 cr NBOC in India. Now #AvengersEndgame is decimating previous records and setting new benchmarks… The audience is thirsting for well-made entertainers, but we rely more on packaging and marketing to do the trick… No wonder, our films misfire too often,” He tweeted.He continued, “#AvengersEndgame has shattered two myths: Screen count and release period… Most *Hindi* biggies release in 3500 screens, even 4000 or 4500+ at times, yet those movies don’t achieve the numbers that #AvengersEndgame has amassed in just *seven days* on *2845* screens.Holidays, festivals, even a minor holiday that could lead to an extended weekend is given priority, while deciding on the release date… Festivals/holidays don’t necessarily guarantee success… Deliver qualitative content and non-holidays will turn into festivals for investors (sic).”Avengers: Endgame, which picks up from its previous instalment Avengers: Infinity War, stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson, amongst others.
Awami League leaders addressing a memorial meeting marking the Jail Killing Day at Krishibid Institution at Khamarbari in the capital on Friday. Photo:BSSAwami League leaders at a discussion on Friday ruled out the possibility of holding any dialogue with the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), reports BSS.”The next parliament election will be held as per the constitution. Polls will be held in no other way excepting in accordance with the constitution,” Awami League Advisory Council member and industries minister Amir Hossain Amu told a memorial meeting marking the Jail Killing Day at Krishibid Institution at Khamarbari in the capital.AL general secretary Obaidul Quader delivered the welcome address while presidium members Begum Matia Chowdhury, Mohammed Nasim, Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Muhammad Faruq Khan and Abdul Matin Khasru, joint general secretaries Mahbubul Alam Hanif, Dipu Moni and Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Dhaka city south unit general secretary Shahe Alam Murad, among others, addressed it.In her speech, Matia Chowdhury expressed her optimism that the people would once again vote Awami League to power in the coming polls.Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim said there will be no supportive government during the next parliament election. “If BNP wants to join polls, it can join. If BNP does not want to join, the party can choose to take to streets. It is not a duty of Awami League to pursue BNP to join election,” he said adding that no talks will be held with BNP as they are “killers of 1971 and 1975”.Terming BNP as an anti-liberation force, Selim urged the party leaders to remain united and stay alert against the evil forces.Speaking on the occasion, Mohammed Nasim said by threatening Awami League of waging movement would yield no results.”Awami League is always champion in waging movement. The party is used to stay in the streets even after being tortured,” he said.Obaidul Quader said the masterminds of the 15 August carnage and the 3 November assassination of four national leaders should be unmasked and brought to justice.
India’s top court ruled Friday that terminally ill patients have the right to refuse care, approving the use of “living wills” to set out how they want to be treated.The Supreme Court’s order — hailed as “historic” by petitioners — means medical treatment can be withdrawn to hasten a person’s death, a practice known as passive euthanasia.The ruling means the family of someone in a permanent vegetative state and unable to communicate could withdraw life support in accordance with the patient’s wishes.The justices gave the green light to living wills, legal documents that allow adults to express their preference on how they want to be treated if they become terminally ill or slip into an incurable coma.It enshrines the right to refuse care, although under strictly controlled conditions.”Life sans dignity is an unacceptable defeat and life that meets death with dignity is a value to be aspired for and a moment for celebration,” the five-judge bench, headed by India’s chief justice, said in its order.”The question that arises is should he not be allowed to cross the doors of life and enter, painlessly and with dignity, into the dark tunnel of death whereafter it is said that there is resplendence.”The court said its guidelines set out “will prevail until the government comes out with legislation”.The Press Trust of India news agency said that in each living will, a court-appointed medical panel will review the instructions before they can be carried out.The 2015 death of 66-year-old nurse Aruna Shanbaug, who was raped and left in a vegetative state for 42 years, reignited India’s national debate over euthanasia.Her plight prompted the Supreme Court to decide in 2011 that life support can be removed for some terminally ill patients in certain circumstances.”It is an important, historic decision,” Prashant Bhushan, a lawyer and one of the petitioners, told reporters after the hearing.With the latest decision, India joins a growing list of countries including Britain, France, Germany and Spain that recognise living wills.Indian law does not permit active euthanasia or assisted suicide, in which patients are helped by doctors to end their lives.
Share Eric Gay/APDemocrat Julian Castro says he is launching a presidential exploratory committee ahead of a likely White House run in 2020. Castro was the nation’s housing secretary until 2016 and spent five years as mayor of San Antonio.Former Obama housing chief Julian Castro says he’s taking a step toward a possible White House campaign in 2020 by forming a presidential exploratory committee. The Texas Democrat tells The Associated Press that he will announce a decision Jan. 12.The move Wednesday gives the 44-year-old former San Antonio mayor an early start to what’s shaping up as a crowded Democratic field without a clear front-runner to challenge President Donald Trump.Castro indicated in an AP interview that his mind was all but made up.“I know where I’m leaning, for sure,” said Castro, who has said for weeks that it was likely he would seek the nomination.An exploratory committee usually is a formality before a candidate launches a presidential campaign. It legally allows potential candidates to begin raising money.But just as important for Castro, the step gives him an early jump on bigger name Democrats who are considering running but are taking a slower approach.No potential contender is more ascendant than outgoing Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who lost last month in a surprisingly close race against Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. O’Rourke has excited donors and activists who are now prodding him to seek the presidency.Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Cory Booker of New Jersey, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, are also potential candidates.Castro would be among the youngest candidates in the field and the most prominent Latino. He played down the attention that others are generating and pointed to past election cycles in which early favorites ended up faltering.“People might say right now, ‘Well, hey, you’re way down here in polling that’s taken.’ The most dangerous place to be right now is actually in the pole position,” Castro said. “It doesn’t bother me that in December of 2018 I’m not right up at the top of the list. If I decide to run, it would be because I believe I have a compelling message and I’m going to work hard and get to the voters and I believe I can be successful.”Castro, who attended O’Rourke’s election-night party in El Paso last month, said O’Rourke doesn’t complicate his own chances.“He’s talented. He ran a good race against Ted Cruz,” Castro said. “I’ll let him talk about his future.”Castro said he has not spoken to former President Barack Obama about his potential candidacy but plans on consulting Democratic leaders. Obama has spoken to O’Rourke, who has said he won’t make a decision on 2020 until after leaving Congress in January.Obama picked Castro to take over the Department of Housing and Urban Development in 2014. Two years later, Castro was on the short list of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s potential running mates.For Castro, running for president would fulfill a destiny that Democrats have projected since he was elected San Antonio mayor at 34, followed by his star-making turn as the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention in 2012.He is the grandson of a Mexican immigrant and son of a Latina activist. His twin brother, Joaquin Castro, is a Democratic congressman from Texas. Julian Castro said the Latino community has been treated “like a pinata” under Trump and deserved a candidate in the field.“I’m also very mindful, especially now for the Latino community, that there’s a particular meaning to my candidacy,” Castro said. “We can’t go through the 2020 cycle with nobody on that stage because of what’s happened over the last couple of years.”Young and telegenic, Castro rose to national prominence early in his career as a Latino leader from a state that Democrats are eager to retake after decades of Republican dominance. But in Texas, O’Rourke has eclipsed Castro after getting closer to a statewide victory than any Democrat in a generation. It now puts Texas in the formerly unthinkable position of having two Democratic presidential candidates in the same year.The last Texas Democrat to run for president was Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, who had a short-lived campaign in 1976.Maryland Rep. John Delaney is the only declared 2020 Democratic presidential candidate so far. Others are expected to announce their intentions in the coming weeks.
