UN tribunal judges weigh transferring trial of two accused generals to Croatia

Judge Theodor Meron, President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), ordered the establishment of a trial chamber following a request for a transfer – the first of its kind – from prosecutors.Judges Alfons Orie of the Netherlands, O-Gon Kwon of the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Kevin Parker of Australia will now hear submissions about whether the trials of Rahim Ademi and Mirko Norac should be heard by the County Court of Zagreb instead.Mr. Ademi and Mr. Norac face one charge of crimes against humanity (persecutions) and four charges of war crimes (two counts of murder, and separate counts of plunder of property, and wanton destruction of cities, towns or villages).But the ICTY’s rules allow for trials to be transferred, if approved by a panel of judges, to a country either where the alleged crime was committed, the accused was arrested, or there is jurisdiction and a willingness to accept the case.As part of its strategy to complete all of its work by 2010, ICTY officials are examining whether the trials of some indicted individuals can be transferred effectively to the local courts of relevant States.If the three judges approve this transfer, Mr. Ademi and Mr. Norac will be handed over to Croatian authorities and prosecutors will provide all the necessary materials to their counterparts.Mr. Ademi, 50, and Mr. Norac, 36, served as generals in the Croatian army after the country became independent in 1990 and worked as commanders during a military operation in the Medak Pocket area in September 1993.Medak Pocket – a small, rural area with about 400 Serb civilian residents – was situated in what was known as a “pink zone,” an area adjacent to a UN Protected Area in Croatia during the Balkan wars of the 1990s.Croatian forces attacked Medak Pocket on 9 September, shelling towns and buildings and killing at least 29 Serbs and wounding many others. The majority of the area’s farm buildings were destroyed and the personal belongings of residents were stolen or damaged beyond repair. read more

Ohio State football By The Numbers

While Ohio State football won’t be in position to clinch the Big Ten’s Leaders Division championship, it’s safe to say their path to the title goes through Happy Valley and the Penn State Nittany Lions. The No. 9-ranked Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0 Big Ten) travel to play Penn State (5-2, 3-0 Big Ten) at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa., where more than 106,000 are expected to attend. OSU and PSU are undefeated in Big Ten play and enter Saturday’s game after rousing victories this past weekend. OSU fought back in the closing seconds of its game against Purdue to force overtime and eventually win, 29-22, with starting sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller sidelined with an injury. PSU, left for dead by some pundits after beginning the season 0-2, stretched its current winning streak to five games with a 38-14 rout of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, on Saturday. PSU coach Bill O’Brien has returned the program to on-field respectability in the first season following late, former coach Joe Paterno’s firing. The two programs are banned from postseason play this season, with PSU’s ban continuing for the three seasons to follow due to NCAA sanctions stemming from former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abusing children in team facilities. Both remain eligible for the Leaders Division crown, though, and the victor on Saturday will be well-positioned to win divisional bragging rights as the 2012 college football season enters its home stretch. Offense  If OSU’s first four Big Ten games are any indicator, both Miller and redshirt junior quarterback Kenny Guiton are going to see action in Saturday’s game against PSU. When Miller’s on the field, he’s simply dominant, having run for 959 yards and 10 scores while throwing for 1,384 yards and 11 touchdowns. The problem is that Miller isn’t always on the field – he’s been forced from each of the Buckeyes’ Big Ten games this season for various amounts of time due to injury. Guiton’s proven himself to be a serviceable back-up, though – he’s completed 12-of-21 attempts this season for 128 yards and a touchdown and an interception. Perhaps most notably, Guiton also proved himself to be cool under pressure, having led the Buckeyes back from a 22-14 deficit with 47 seconds to play against Purdue to an eventual overtime win. For Penn State’s part, senior quarterback Matt McGloin, a former walk-on, has emerged as one of the elite passers in the conference. What the Nittany Lions lack in a rushing attack – their leading running back, redshirt junior Zach Zwinak, has 369 yards on the season – McGloin makes up for in the passing game. The Scranton, Pa. native has 1,788 yards through the air to go along with 14 passing touchdowns. Defense For all of OSU’s defensive struggles, the unit showed improvement last week against Purdue, allowing just 13 points to the Boilermakers’ offense (the other Purdue scores came on a 100-yard kickoff return and a safety). OSU senior Zach Boren has provided a spark at the linebacker position for the Buckeyes and has tallied 14 tackles in two games since jumping to defense from the fullback position. The Nittany Lions’ defense is stout and is the 13th in the nation with only 15.71 points per game allowed. PSU also only allows more than 322.7 yards per game – that’s 22nd best in America. The Nittany Lions also boast a potential all-Big Ten linebacker in redshirt senior Michael Mauti, who has accumulated 65 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three interceptions. Mauti, PSU’s emotional leader, will likely steer the PSU defense on the field and stoke the Beaver Stadium “White Out” crowd as well. Special Teams On paper, the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions don’t pose a great threat on kick and punt returns. OSU has the only return for a touchdown between the two squads – a punt return by OSU junior Corey Brown against Nebraska. There’s only marginal separation between the teams when it comes to return yardages as well, though OSU holds the edge in punt and kickoff returns. For perhaps the first time all season, OSU has an edge when it comes to kicking field goals. Buckeyes junior kicker Drew Basil is 3-of-5 on field goal tries this season. Basil’s season-long is 35 yards and he clanked a 50-yard try off the upright in the north end zone at Ohio Stadium last weekend. Through no fault of his own, Basil simply hasn’t had many opportunities this season. PSU sophomore kicker Sam Ficken is a different story. Ficken is 4-of-11 on field goal tries this season, has a long of 34 yards and missed four attempts during a 17-16 Sept. 8 loss at Virginia. Since that loss, O’Brien has used his kicker sparingly and has trotted Ficken out for only two field goals longer than 40 yards, and the kicker missed both (a 47-yard miss against Illinois and a 43-yarder against Iowa). read more

Samsung confirms dualcore 2GHz mobile chip for 2012

first_imgSamsung has confirmed that it is set to release a new mobile processor in 2012 that it says puts the power of a PC in a phone. The reason for that claim is the sheer speed on offer as it will be a dual-core chip running at 2GHz.The current range of smartphones on the market rely on mobile processors typically running between 800MHz and 1.2GHz in both single and dual-core configurations. Samsung’s new chip would significantly push up the performance of any handset using it over what we experience today, and paves the way for even more functionality or just an improved Android experience at a higher resolution.AdChoices广告Little is known about the new chip other than its speed. It is expected to carry the name Exynos which Samsung already uses for some of its mobile processors. A good example of that it the Exynos (GT-i9100) — a 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 chip found in the Galaxy S II.The existing Exynos 4210 architecture can be seen below and already offers a wealth of features including 3D, 1080p video, HDMI out, and triple-display support. The 2GHz will surely offer a similar feature set and most likely extends past previous generations.The good news for consumers is Samsung isn’t keeping the processor just for its own devices. The company intends to offer it to third-party manufacturers meaning we could see an influx of 2GHz smartphones arriving in 2010, and who knows, possibly tablets running the new chip too.Read more at Daum, via MashableMatthew’s OpinionWhile it’s great to hear that Samsung is breaking the 2GHz barrier, Qualcomm already has the march on them. In February the company announced its plans for the next Snapdragon processor which will run at 2.5GHz and offer single, dual, and quad-core options.In both cases that’s a serious amount of performance on offer, but you do have to wonder what these new chips will do to the battery life of smartphones and tablets running them. Although low-power, they will really eat into battery life unless some more power-saving breakthroughs have been made.I think the next major update we see after this won’t be speed, instead ARM will roll out a new processor design for these manufacturers to take advantage of. At the same time Intel should finally be in a position to offer up an Atom chip as a real competitor to ARM’s current dominance of the market.last_img read more

This Tardis bed shows off geek cred and saves space

first_imgMurphy beds are usually used in tight spaces or small rooms that need to serve multiple purposes: an office and a guest room, for example. At the same time, the underside of a Murphy bed can be a little ungainly: just a big wooden wall. What better way to hide that unsightly wood than to turn it into a Tardis?That’s what one enterprising geek did to enter the Where’s The Tardis contest. The contest, designed to challenge Doctor Who fans to a DIY, Tardis-building challenge, will earn the winner of the contest a private screening of Doctor Who with 50 guests of their choice, courtesy of BBC America. The contest is over now and there’s nothing left to do but judge the winners, but the entries are remarkable: there are birthday cakes, hand-carved Tardis models, huge Tardis replicas, and more – but the Tardis Bed stands out a bit, partially because its so quirky and interesting.The bed looks like the classic blue British Police Box from the outside when the bed is up and flat against the wall. When you open the doors and drop the bed down, aside from getting a place to sleep you also have a view inside the Tardis itself, complete with the center controls and all of the other rooms and space inside. After all, the Tardis is bigger on the inside.According to the contest entry, the whole project didn’t take too much to make: some paint, lumber, vinyl, and the image required for the inside view of the Tardis on the interior. That’s about it. There’s no guarantee the Tardis Bed will win the contest, but even if it doesn’t, it’s probably one of the most unique ways of hiding a Murphy bed ever. Sure, any Doctor Who fan will see it and immediately recognize it, but it’s also a really cozy bed.Read more at Tardis Bed and Where’s The Tardislast_img read more

Teen scientist checks for alien lasers around famously weird star

first_img Share your voice Dust likely behind weird dimming of ‘Tabby’s Star’ Sorry, aliens not causing ‘Tabby’s Star’ weirdness Discovering alien life probably won’t freak us out, studies say 0 Sci-Tech Best places in space to search for alien life Breakthrough Listen searches galaxies for radio signals and laser transmissions in the hopes of finding extra-terrestrial intelligence. Part of a $100 million series of initiatives announced in 2015 by Russian-Israeli billionaire Yuri Milner and physicist Stephen Hawking, the project attracted the attention of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who sits on its board.Lipman began a correspondence with University of California Berkeley scientists Howard Isaacson and Steve Croft, who work on Breakthrough Listen and the APF program, and was eventually invited to work directly with the scientists as part of a summer internship. Lipman analyzed APF data, looking for any signs of uber powerful lasers straight out of science fiction — the kind a highly advanced alien civilization might use for communication or propelling spaceships.”He quickly became familiar with a lot of background material to the extent that the team could converse with him at a highly technical level about his work,” Croft said. “Most students his age working on science problems are tackling questions where the correct answer is given in the back of the textbook. In contrast, David is doing original research that is helping us to advance our capacity to answer one of the biggest questions in science: Are we alone in the universe?” It’s been three years since Boyajian’s Star first made a stir, and Lipman is now an 18-year-old freshman at Princeton University. He told me via email that he’s thinking of majoring in physics, but is still exploring other options.”I’m very passionate about machine learning and its potential benefits for science and society… (I) have some ideas on how to use neural networks to more accurately analyze spectra to identify artificial signals.”Meanwhile, other teams of astronomers continue to watch Boyajian’s Star closely, and the leading explanation today is that clouds of space dust, not huge alien construction projects, are blocking its light in unusual ways. But the distant sun still remains an intriguing candidate to check for signs of extra-terrestrial life, just in case. In fact, the recently launched Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is scheduled to take a closer look in the new year.  26 Photos Lipman’s search didn’t turn up any evidence of alien lasers, but through continued collaboration with Isaacson and other researchers, the results have now been accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, with Lipman as the lead author. “His thorough analysis of this one object will form the groundwork for the analysis of the hundreds of other targets,” Croft wrote in a blog post.The paper will be published in Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and a pre-print draft can be read here.  NASA set to launch exoplanet-hunting satellitecenter_img 4:47 This illustration show’s an artist’s vision of what Tabby’s Star might look like with a surrounding ring of dust. NASA/JPL-Caltech Boyajian’s Star (also known as Tabby’s Star or KIC 8462852) first made headlines in 2015 when it was suggested alien megastructures might explain its strange behavior: the star’s brightness seemed to randomly rise and fall over time.Since then, a number of telescopes including the recently deactivated Kepler Space Telescope have been pointed at the star to try to better understand what’s really happening there. David Lipman was captivated enough by the so-called “alien megastructures star” in 2016 that he began analyzing publicly available observations of Boyajian’s Star from the Automated Planet Finder Telescope (APF) at California’s Lick Observatory. But Lipman isn’t a professional astronomer. At the time, he was a junior at Kehillah Jewish High School in Palo Alto, California, looking into the data sets for a school science project. “(I’m) looking for candidate laser signals,” Lipman explained in the below interview filmed at Lick. “I’ve written an algorithm that basically looks through all of the spectra that Breakthrough Listen has recorded.” Boyajian’s mystery Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment Tags NASA turns 60: The space agency has taken humanity farther than anyone else, and it has plans to go further.Crowd Control: A crowdsourced science fiction novel written by CNET readers.

September Job Growth Beats Forecasts at 248000

first_img Share Bureau of Labor Statistics Jobs Unemployment 2014-10-03 Tory Barringer October 3, 2014 601 Views Updated.After giving a soft performance in August, the labor market came back strong last month, knocking the national unemployment rate down below the 6.0 percent mark for the first time in more than six years.According to the latest monthly figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nation added 248,000 jobs in September, bringing employment growth back above 200,000 after an unexpected drop in August.Economists surveyed by the Wall Street Journal predicted the economy would add 215,000 jobs last month.Meanwhile, payroll figures for July and August were revised upward to 243,000 and 180,000, respectively, tacking on an additional 69,000 jobs to their original estimates. Over the last year, monthly job growth has averaged 213,000.With the latest estimate, the government puts the U.S. unemployment rate at 5.9 percent, its lowest since July 2008.Despite the good news in September’s report, the headline numbers mask a few less encouraging movements, the biggest of which is a drop in the labor force participation rate to 62.7 percent—the lowest rate in decades—as more Americans abandoned their search for work. Among that group—totaling more than 2.2 million—nearly 700,000 gave up looking because they don’t believe there are any jobs available for them.Factoring in those populations and the 7.1 million Americans employed part-time for economic reasons, BLS put the “U-6” unemployment rate at 11.8 percent for September, double the headline figure.Despite those problem signs, Friday’s report all but ensures leaders at the Federal Reserve will vote to end the central bank’s bond buying program in their next meeting later this month.Other indicators in the September report were mixed. After months of flatness, the average workweek for private employees squeaked up to 34.6 hours. At the same time, average hourly earnings slipped a cent to $24.53.center_img in Data, Featured, Government, News September Job Growth Beats Forecasts at 248,000last_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arians dropped a bombshell in his daily press conference on Monday when he told reporters that the 60-yard reception Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers completed to Jeff Janis on 4th-and-20 to keep the Packers’ drive alive and set up a game-tying Hail Mary pass in the playoffs last season was not Bethel’s fault, but somebody else’s due to a blown coverage.“He got blamed for it, but he wasn’t even in that coverage,” Arians said.Even so, Bethel understands that he will garner a lot of attention from opposing offenses.“After last year, being target practice for guys, knowing that they were going to come at me, I think that really did help me,” he said. “When you’re playing (opposite) a five-time (Pro Bowler) like Pat, they’re going to throw at you and you’ve got to realize they are going to make plays on you. You just have to come back and make the plays that you can when they come to you and not be so worried about what happened.”Bethel was keenly aware of the motivational message Arians was sending during the first three weeks of training camp, but he was also listening to the messages his body was sending him.“This isn’t something I can rush,” he said of his foot injury. “If I’m hurting I’m hurting. If I can’t play I can’t play. You don’t want to rush it back and seriously re-injure it to where I couldn’t even play in the season. It’s been nice being able to take my time and still go out there and do what I need to do; try to be in shape for when I do come back.” Your browser does not support the audio element. Less than two weeks into camp, Arians consulted the coach’s handbook of motivational tactics and threw down the gauntlet for all to hear.“It’s Brandon’s job right now,” he said. “You can’t win it if you’re not practicing.”Bethel is practicing now, so the narrative has changed. When asked Monday if there was enough time left before the season opener (three weeks) for Bethel to reclaim the starting role that was supposed to be his, Arians nodded.“There’s no doubt,” he said. “There’s plenty of time.“With him coming back this summer, and looking as good as he looked yesterday, that will be a nice battle going on the rest of the way.”Bethel has only been practicing for two days. He still has to show that his foot has fully healed and he still has to prove that he stayed buried in the playbook and the film room during his absence.When the Cardinals signed him to a three-year, $15 million extension in December that included $9 million in guaranteed money, they didn’t do so lightly. They did so with the idea he would start opposite Patrick Peterson, especially with Jerraud Powers having departed in free agency. LISTEN: Justin Bethel, Cardinals’ cornerback GLENDALE, Ariz. — You could see this story arc developing in July.Cardinals cornerback Justin Bethel was supposed to be ready for the start of training camp following offseason foot surgery, but a setback landed him on the PUP list. Coach Bruce Arians needed a way to hasten Bethel’s return and along came third-round draft pick Brandon Williams, a guy with just one year of experience at the position, but a guy with obvious athletic ability, limb length and Bethel-like speed. Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelocenter_img 0 Comments   Share   Like Arians, Bethel believes there is enough time to reclaim the starting job — if he ever really lost it.“All this time I had off, it gave me time to watch a lot of film and study things and see techniques.
