Two arrested for attempted murder after police injured in hitandrun

first_imgTWO MEN have been arrested in Lancashire over the attempted murder of two police officers who pulled over a speeding car last night.The policemen were hospitalised when they were struck by a red Hyundai car which they had routinely pulled over for speeding.The car deliberately reversed into the policemen while they approached it, before making off.Both officers were taken to hospital for their injuries; one of the two sustained a fractured skull and a bleed to the brain, though is in a stable and non life-threatening condition.The other officer sustained a fractured wrist which will require surgery to repair.The two arrested men remain in police custody, while a car has been recovered for forensic analysis.“What this incident painfully highlights is the dangers officer face every day when protecting the public,” said Greater Manchester Police assistant chief constable Garry Shewan.“What should have been a routine vehicle stop resulted in two officers being deliberately driven at and suffering serious injuries.“What I do want to stress is that as a result of inquiries, we quickly traced what we believe to be the offending car to an address in Haslingden and arrested two people on suspicion of attempted murder.“Those individuals remain in custody for questioning and we would continue to appeal to anyone who either witnessed the incident or has information to come forward.”last_img read more

Quake is 15 Carmack admits it pushed him to the limit

first_imgYesterday, Quake turned 15 years old and reminded this gamer just how quickly time passes. But I’m actually grateful to have been at the right age to appreciate and now remember what a turning point that game’s release was for the PC and video games in general.To celebrate the 15th anniversary Bethesda got John Carmack to share a few memories about the development of the ground-breaking first-person shooter, and in so doing he has revealed a few surprises.AdChoices广告Carmack admits that Quake made him “grapple with my personal limitations.” Even though the games today are throwing around orders of magnitude more detail, it was Quake that nearly beat the legendary Carmack’s programming and time-management skills.The reason it was so tough is because everything Carmack was doing was new. A 3D world, 3D characters, an in-game scripting engine, light maps, and of course the networking for multiplayer. Not only was that a lot of problems to solve, he had to do it in a timeframe that made sense for the release of the game. As we all know, he succeeded.We also learn that id Software was concerned about free-look mouse control and whether gamers would be able to deal with it. As for that all important multiplayer exectuable called Quakeworld, Carmack says it was almost accidental, but after seeing gamers still playing online even though transfer speeds were really bad, he decided it was worthwhile optimizing for release.Finally, Carmack tells us that as well as considering this game as “the golden age of modding,” he has Quake to thank for meeting his wife. She organized the first all-female Quake tournament which he pulled himself away from a screen long enough to attend and notice her.My first memories of Quake were how good it looked and how fast it ran even on poor PCs. id Software and Carmack really produced something special in 1996, and many gamers still play the game today.If you want to read an inside view of how Quake came to be, and how the games that went before it were developed, then the book Masters of Doom is probably the best resource and we highly recommend picking it up.Read more at the Bethesda Bloglast_img read more

Xbox Fans Will Love Horis New PlayStation 4 Controller

first_imgStay on target Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Hori is well-known for releasing quality gaming accessories and controllers. The company will launch a brand-new, officially licensed controller for the PS4 next week dubbed the “Onyx.” No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This upcoming PS4 controller totally, purposefully, looks like an Xbox controller.Before going into the design, let’s talk about what the controller features. As stated over on the PlayStation Blog, the Onyx controller has all core controls and direct Bluetooth connectivity. It has a touch pad, dual vibration motors, and asymmetrical analog sticks. Hori’s Andrew Mason says this controller’s design “makes it easier than ever for gamers to find a controller that suits their unique playstyle.”Besides the touchpad, everything else about the Onyx screams “Xbox.” There have been many other PS4 controllers with asymmetrical sticks (even some from Hori), but that isn’t the only thing that makes the controller Xbox-like. The broad design, d-pad shape and placement, and the shoulder triggers are all evocative of an Xbox controller. Specifically, the Xbox One. I suppose if you’re going to draw inspiration from a controller, the Xbox One controller isn’t a bad one to go off of.While I prefer PlayStation controllers over Xbox controllers (that symmetry, baby!) I will admit to having a soft spot for the Xbox One’s controller. It reminds me a lot of the Dreamcast controller in terms of size and heft. Given how the Xbox One controller feels better when playing shooting games, I’d certainly like to try Doom or Destiny 2 on PS4 using the Onyx.Hori’s Onyx controller will be available on January 15. The controller was revealed on Sony’s European site so it’s unclear if it will also release in North America on that same date. We’re not sure how much the Onyx will sell for either. I suppose we’ll find that out next week.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

The Tax Laws New Way Of Measuring Inflation Could Take A Toll

first_img Share Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesPresident Trump talks with journalists at the White House after signing the tax overhaul into law on Friday.A little-remarked-upon provision changing the way inflation is calculated is among the big changes contained in the tax overhaul signed by President Trump last week.The new method, using the so-called “chained” consumer price index to determine when to adjust tax brackets and eligibility for deductions, is expected to push more Americans into higher tax brackets more quickly. In the past, the tax code used the traditional CPI measure issued by the Labor Department each month.By switching to this new method, the government will bring an additional $134 billion into federal coffers over the next decade, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.How will that happen?It comes down to this: The chained CPI makes inflation appear lower, and that means tax brackets will be adjusted upward more slowly — but lots of workers will continue to get raises based upon the faster-rising traditional CPI. In other words, your income may rise faster than the inflation adjustments, forcing you to pay taxes at a higher rate — even though you may not feel any richer.“Compared to where taxpayers would be under present law, by 2027 most individuals will actually pay more taxes,” said Steve Rosenthal, senior fellow at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.The difference will be slight, perhaps just a few tenths of a percentage point a year, he says, “but over time, these fractions of a percentage point add up and can amount to a fair amount of money.”Since 2000, the traditional CPI has increased by 45.7 percent, while the chained CPI has risen only 39.7 percent, a difference of 6 percentage points, according to the Tax Policy Center.And unlike other parts of the bill that expire over time, such as the tax cuts for individuals, this new inflation measure will last indefinitely.Since the 1980s, the government has been indexing tax rates to inflation, to prevent “bracket creep” — the steady movement of more and more taxpayers into higher tax brackets. For example, the income threshold for the top marginal tax rate of 39.6 percent rose from $415,050 in 2016 to $418,400 in 2017.“These adjustments prevent taxpayers from being pushed into higher tax brackets when their incomes rise just enough to keep up with inflation,” according to a report from the Brookings Institution.To calculate inflation, government officials use the Labor Department’s long-running CPI rate, which measures fluctuations of prices of specific products over time.“The usual way to do an index for inflation is to look at a basket of goods, see how much it costs you in, say, 2016, go back, get the next basket of goods and see what it costs you in 2017, and compare the same basket over two years,” says Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office. “Unfortunately, when prices for goods go up, people tend to purchase less of them.”Translation: When beef gets expensive, shoppers buy fewer steaks and more chicken breasts.Chained CPI is calculated by the Labor Department to account for these real-world purchasing decisions, by factoring in the kinds of product substitutions consumers make in the real world.This alternative inflation measure is seen by many economists as more accurate. The administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama proposed switching to chained CPI as part of a broader tax reform.“What the tax-reform bill does is actually just substitute what everyone agrees is a more accurate measure of inflation for the old measure,” says Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum.David Kamin, former special economic adviser to Obama, says the use of chained CPI may make some economic sense but needs to be put in context.“It’s one thing to put in chained CPI if you think that it’s going to go toward actually helping working families in the long run,” says Kamin. “It’s another thing if you’re doing chained CPI in order to pay for a permanent corporate tax reduction.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

Girija Devi wanted to sing a song for India

first_imgLate Indian classical vocalist Girija Devi, who earned the epithet of ‘Thumri queen’, wanted to sing a song for the country. The revelation was made by lyricist Prasoon Joshi as he paid tribute to Girija Devi at the maiden MTV India Music Summit.The legendary artiste was due to share the stage for a concert and conversation with Pandit Jasraj at the summit, but she passed away on October 24. She was 88.While paying tribute to Girija Devi, Joshi said, “I was reminded of her Thumri.””I remembered my childhood, the smile, and I also recollected that just a few months ago, Girija Deviji had expressed a desire to sing a song for the nation.””She wanted to sing something for India. She felt it had been too long (since such a song came out), and she told me, ‘Main chahti hun tum kuchh likho (I want you to write something’.”So I thought what will I write, she said, ‘Like ‘Vande Mataram’, whatever thoughts you have about the nation, you write them. I want to sing it. Main chahti hun ki jaane se pehle ek aisa geet karun (It’s my desire that before I leave the world, I sing such a song)’.”Joshi couldn’t write the song.”I don’t know if she ever mentioned it to anyone, but when she mentioned this song again, I said I had started writing something. (But) It’s my destiny that it couldn’t happen,” he added.Nevertheless, Joshi said it was commendable that at her age, “she thought about what she can still do and what she should still do to leave behind as a legacy”.Pandit Jasraj, who performed to a full house at the Fairmont Jaipur’s Grand Ballroom, which reverberated with his powerful rendition of “Raag din ki puriya”, also remembered Girija Devi.Before his performance, Pandit Jasraj said he was looking forward to meet his “Jiji” and share the stage with her and relive old times, but the news of her demise shook him.”She used to bring an unmatched aura to a gathering,” he said, adding that he considers her death a “personal loss”. Mala Sekhri, Co-founder of Musiconcepts said she had spoken to Giriji Devi, who had told her that her “packing was done” to be a part of the forum.The veteran semi classical singer passed away in Kolkata on October 24 night following a cardiac arrest.last_img read more

GLENDALE Ariz — Antoine Cason spent the first fi

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — Antoine Cason spent the first five years of his NFL career with the San Diego Chargers. Selected in the first round (27th overall) by the team in the 2008 NFL Draft out of the University of Arizona, he accumulated 308 total tackles, 12 interceptions and four forced fumbles in his time there, numbers that were solid, but not enough to get the team to commit to bringing him back when his contract expired. Top Stories “Take care of what I can handle and take care of what I can take care of, that’s all I can do,” he said. “Put myself in good position to have a role.” Comments   Share   – / 21 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retirescenter_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo So, Cason signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, who will be facing the Chargers Saturday in a preseason matchup.Not even a full calendar removed from when he was last a member of the Chargers, he’ll now be facing off against them.“It’s crazy; it’s definitely interesting in playing the team that I came from, but for me this is once again a stepping stone in my progress to be the best player I can be,” Cason said Thursday. “I’m going to take it like that.“My mindset is not to worry about getting caught up in the emotions of, ‘Oh, it’s the San Diego Chargers.’ You know what? Screw that, I have to go out there and make plays just like any other week.”That said, Cason admitted there may be a little extra motivation given that he is playing against a franchise that let him leave, but he has more important things to worry about now that he’s in Arizona. Though not exactly fighting for a spot on the roster, Cason’s role on the team is not yet defined as he continues to battle for a spot in a very deep secondary.Of that, Cason, who says he’s feeling good and excited about his progression as a player this camp, is focused only on what he can control: his effort and performance on the football field.

Kuwaiti investors to probe property deals

first_imgBy Evie AndreouTHE chairmen of three Kuwaiti investment funds arrived on Wednesday for a series of meetings with government officials and the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA), to discuss investment prospects mainly in the property sector.The investors, who arrived on a private jet and represent the Kuwait Projects Company (KIPCO), will first meet with CIPA officials on Thursday and then with president Nicos Anastasiades, finance minister Harris Georgiades and energy minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis.Charis Papacharalambous, Director General of CIPA, told the Cyprus Mail “the delegation from Kuwait is here on an exploratory mission. They are here to be informed about Cyprus’s economic and banking system. There is no specific project on the table.”He said that CIPA has arranged a presentation by the Association of Valuers and Property Consultants for the Kuwaiti delegation on property development in Cyprus.The investors also expressed interest in the privatisation of semi-government organisations and in the energy sector.Papacharalambous said that we need to be down to earth regarding this visit and not cause a lot of noise over nothing. “These things take time and at the moment there is nothing more to it,” he said.Following Anastasiades’ official visit to Kuwait last October as part of a series of trips to Gulf states with the aim of attracting investors, Cyprus and Kuwait signed a series of bilateral agreements including cooperation in fighting terrorism, organised crime, drugs trafficking and illegal migration.Agreements were also signed for cooperation in the areas of tourism, education, and health.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Details announced of Euroelection polling stations for Turkish Cypriots

first_imgDetails of the 50 polling stations to be set up near the buffer zone where Turkish Cypriots will be able to cast their votes during the European Parliament elections of May 26, were announced on Tuesday.The Chief Returning Officer announced that in the Nicosia district, there would be two polling stations at the Kato Pyrgos gymnasium, two at the offices of the Flasou community council, seven at the Astromeritis primary school, eight at the Ayios Dhometios multi-purpose centre, four at  the School for the Deaf in Engomi, six at the central offices of the department of urban planning and housing, and eight at the Phaneromeni gymnasium in the city’s old town.There will also be four polling stations in Larnaca Regional Lyceum in the Larnaca district.In the Famagusta district there will be three polling stations at the Aheritou primary school, three at the B’ Dherynia primary school and three at the public and community kindergarten of Dherynia.This concerns the around 81,000 Turkish Cypriot who are automatically included in the special election list of the European elections and are eligible to vote, an announcement said.Authorities said they have made arrangements for Turkish-speaking officers at those polling stations. To avoid delays or problems due to the increased numbers of Turkish Cypriots crossing that day, arrangements have been made for additional staff and equipment at the Ledra Street, Ledra Palace and Dherynia crossing points, which are expected to be the busiest. The Turkish Cypriot authorities will also place additional personnel at the Nicosia and Famagusta crossing points.In 2014, less than 2,000 Turkish Cypriots voted, while hundreds of them were turned away due to bureaucratic and technical problems that excluded them from the electoral list. Although it is not possible to estimate how many of those 81,000 will actually cross to the southern part of the island to vote, researchers expect a much higher turnout compared to the previous EP elections due to the disappointment with the solution process to the presence of strong Turkish Cypriot candidates.A record number of nine Turkish Cypriot candidates have submitted their candidacy for this year’s European Parliament elections, which also saw left-wing Akel – field Turkish Cypriot academic Niyazi Kizilyurek among its six candidates. Five other Turkish Cypriots are running together with journalist Sever Levent of Afrika newspaper as part of his Jasmine Movement; and two others are running from the Cyprus Socialist Party. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
