He was armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and had more than $10,000 in Paraguayan guaraníes, along with numerous cellphones and memory cards. It’s unclear if any of the five or six other ACA members accompanying Jara Larrea were wounded or killed in the clash. Law enforcement authorities suspect that it e ACA once had about 15 members, but its ranks have dwindled in recent months thanks to law enforcement efforts. For example, security forces killed five ACA operatives during a gun battle in September 2014. The police force arrested 52,830 suspects – an average of nearly 145 people a day, for various offenses, such as robbery, extortion, drug trafficking, assault, and homicide. FTC forces were conducting an operation on the night of January 5 when they engaged in a gun fight with about six ACA operatives that resulted in Jara Larrea’s death.

Canada may have been drawn into a tough Group H at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 but the country is not complaining about it as they know exactly what they are capable of doing.The Canadians are back at the FIBA World Cup after missing out in Spain five years ago and, in their return, have been drawn into a group with no less than Asia-Oceania powerhouse Australia, European giants Lithuania and strong African side Senegal. Despite knowing they will face some stiff competition in Dongguan, the North Americans are not complaining about it. “I don’t think that as hard as we have worked to get to the World Cup that we will now complain about the draw,” Rowan Barrett, Canada Basketball’s men’s national team general manager, told The Canadian Press.”Each one of (Canada’s opponents) was first in their group (in the World Cup Qualifiers) so they’ve clearly been performing well. I think it’s good that (the draw) was this far out. It gives us the opportunity to look within our depth pool as we form our team to counteract the strengths of the other teams.””IT’S NOT GOING TO BE EASY FOR US, BUT IT ALSO ISN’T GOING TO BE EASY FOR OUR OPPONENTS.”- Canada forward/center Kelly OlynykOne of the many NBA players that Canada will be able to call upon is Kelly Olynyk of the Miami Heat. And the 7ft (2.13m) big man knows the Canadians will be challenged in China.”It’s a very, very competitive group, that is for sure. Senegal have a good team, with guys such as Gorgui Dieng who is a very tough center, and Lithuania and Australia are very good ones too,” Olynyk told FIBA.basketball.”We all know what they’re capable of, and they have rosters loaded with many talented players. All the guys they have in the NBA, plus the guys who play in top teams in Europe, they have the potential to have great runs this summer. Our first goal will be to have a great First Round and try to finish in the (group’s) first spot. We know we’re capable of doing so.”Canada, who compiled a 10-2 record in the Americas Qualifiers, have a good amount of talent themselves.”It’s not going to be easy for us, but it also isn’t going to be easy for our opponents,” said Olynyk, who averaged 16.0 points, 11.0 rebounds 4.0 assists, 2.7 steals and 1.7 blocks in three games across the third and fourth windows of the Qualifiers.The 27-year-old does not envy the Canadian coaches in having to select the 12 players headed to China.”It’s not going to be an easy job for the coaching staff to pick the final roster, but I think that’s also a great sign for the current state of Canada basketball,” Olynyk said. “We have so many guys that can play for the national team and impact the team in a very good way.”Canada are to appoint a head coach ahead of the World Cup after Jay Triano stepped down from the position on March 25.”WE’RE ALL VERY EXCITED AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SUMMER… WE WANT TO HAVE A GREAT RUN AND TRY TO COME BACK HOME WITH SOMETHING.”- Olynyk Olynyk, who has played for Canada at the World Cup in 2010 and the 2011 and 2015 editions of the FIBA AmeriCup, expects to take a veteran leadership role this summer.”My role as one of the most experienced guys on the roster is something I enjoy, as I know I have responsibilities and have to be a good example to the others. I like helping the younger players and be a team guy,” he explained.”When you wear the national team jersey, it’s about the whole country, the team and the group of guys. I love that feeling of being part of the project of helping our basketball and the national team become among the best in the world.” https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/df/78/rowan-barrett-canada-fiba_26tcpqs8kv6uzf1mn3lwk65n.jpg?t=-68171807&w=500&quality=80 https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/74/ec/olynyk-canada-fiba_1rpanu4h91yju1v1r7or8jfesi.jpg?t=-68241303&w=500&quality=80 Canada have struggled to achieve good results at the World Cup, when they’ve taken part in FIBA’s flagship competition. In addition to missing out at Spain 2014, the Canadians went 0-5 at Turkey 2010 with losses to Lebanon, Lithuania, France, New Zealand and Spain. They failed to qualify for the showpiece event in Japan in 2006 and went 0-3 in group play four years earlier in the USA, losing to Spain Angola and the former Yugoslavia before beating Lebanon and Venezuela in Classification 13-16 action.In fact, Canada’s last taste of World Cup victory came in 1998 with a 70-57 defeat of Senegal. The North Americans then lost to Italy before falling to Yugoslavia, Puerto Rico and Russia in Second Round action. Still, the expectations on Canada are growing given all the talent the country is producing. But Olynyk said the pressure is not being felt by the team.”It’s not a pressure we feel, it’s a motivation we have to do great and show the world that our national team can be very good,” he pointed out. “We’re used to playing with a lot of attention and expectations and we enjoy the process of building potentially one of the best national teams on the planet.”We’re all very excited and looking forward to this summer, as playing on the world stage isn’t something that we do every year. We want to have a great run and try to come back home at the end of the competition with something.”
Nomination DayIt is said that there is strength in numbers, and on Friday when the political parties took to the streets for Nomination Day, that strength was in full display as the streets leading to Umana Yana were transformed into a sea of red and green.An overhead shot of the PPP/C’s sea of redNomination Day is considered as one of the most significant days leading up to the General and Regional Elections which is to be hosted on March 2, 2020.Not wanting to be left behind, supporters of the various political parties took to the streets as they joined their leaders heading to the Umana Yana in Kingston, Georgetown to submit the lists of candidates.The atmosphere was charged as the procession of supporters, led by their leaders, chanted the slogans of their respective parties.Nomination Day is significant in the sense that it guarantees the political parties a spot on the ballot paper once they have met the criteria outlined by the Guyana Elections Commission and catered for under the laws governing the elections body.APNU/AFC supportersThe parties have now submitted their list of candidates who they anticipate would take up seats in Parliament as well as on the Regional Democratic Councils. The lists submitted were the General Elections List, or the National Top-up List as it is called, along with the Geographical Constituency List.They will now await verification and approval from GECOM, which is expected to be completed by January 19.Under the list system, political parties have to submit three lists of candidates. The National Top-up List, the Geographical Constituency List and the Regional Candidates List. Candidates would be extracted from these lists to serve in the National Assembly as well as on Regional Democratic Councils since 25 of the 65 seats in the House are allocated to the 10 Administrative Regions (Geographical Constituency List) and the other 40 from the National Top-up List.Some 13 parties have submitted their lists of candidates to contest the General and Regional Elections or in some cases, just regional elections. This election is dubbed as the ‘mother of all elections’ since it was birthed from the passage of a No-Confidence Motion, which was successfully passed in the National Assembly over a year ago.PPP/C Presidential Candidate Irfaan Ali, Prime Ministerial Candidate Brigadier (retired) Mark Phillips, and General Secretary Bharrat Jagdeo leading the chargeWhile the process has birthed a number of new political parties, it was evident that the incumbent Government – A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance for Change (APNU/AFC) coalition – and the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) remain the frontrunners.The energy in the two camps was unmatched as both parties mobilised their supporters from all over the country – what can only be described as a “clash of crowds”.PPP/C assembled on Robb Street in front of their headquarters – Freedom House – while APNU/AFC assembled at Parade Ground.There were several music trucks blasting the campaign songs for the major players while their supporters sang loudly.President David Granger and his running mate, Khemraj Ramjattan, leading the processionThis election saw a shift in things since GECOM took a decision to move the Nomination Day proceedings from the badly-dilapidating City Hall to Umana Yana. This gave the political parties a bigger space for their supporters which ultimately resulted in the lack of a clash among rival supporters.The APNU/AFC coalition, led by President David Granger and Prime Ministerial Candidate Khemraj Ramjattan, were the first to arrive at the venue. They presented their list to loud cheers and horns blasting from their large group of supporters.The smaller parties only came with essential personnel and lack of fanfare, noting that it is what happens at the ballot rather than mobilising crowds to march with them as they file Nomination Day papers.The PPP/C was the fourth party to present their list to Chief Elections Officer Keith Lowenfield. Their mammoth-sized procession was led by Presidential Candidate Irfaan Ali, Prime Ministerial Candidate Brigadier (retired) Mark Phillips and General Secretary Bharrat Jagdeo.
Charlie Nicholas says Alexis Sanchez does not deserve to have his contract demands met by Arsenal and should be sold this summer.The Chilean forward is approaching the final 12 months of his current deal and has yet to agree extended terms, with reports suggesting he wants £200,000-a-week to sign on.Sanchez is Arsenal’s top goalscorer this season and widely regarded as one of the very best players in the Premier League.But Nicholas says the 28-year-old – who is being eyed by leaders Chelsea – has no right to hold the club to ransom.Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, the former Arsenal striker said: “When I played you probably got told a month before you were getting a new contract. You had to work and earn that right and if you got a new contract without winning things you thought, ‘well, this is a result’.“These people [at Arsenal now] don’t even get close to winning the title. You are talking about jumping from £120,000-a-week to £200,000-a-week for Sanchez. Sell him.“He has not been interested in the game for the last eight weeks. He is camouflaging it.“I would sell him. Get him out. If he wants to go to Chelsea and Chelsea want to pay £60million, I would sell him to Chelsea.”And Nicholas has launched a blistering attack on Gunners chiefs for their handling of Sanchez’s contract situation.The Scot, who scored 54 goals in 184 matches in his five years at Arsenal, added: “Arsenal had great credit in the footballing market because they would not go over the threshold of £100,000-a-week.“They sold Robin van Persie to Manchester United because he wanted £200,000-a-week. Arsenal had values at that time. Arsenal don’t have any values and any soul that says to these players,’ you can go’.“Henry, Vieira, they were the greatest players Arsenal ever had and now you have got players who are not going to be anywhere close to the greatest and we are keeping them and they are holding us to ransom.“They should have said to Sanchez two months ago, ‘are you signing?’ If he said ‘no, I’m not going to sign’, then he should be sold in the summer. They should isolate the players.“They don’t have values now. They have lost their credibility.”
TOKYO (AP) — It can’t dribble, let alone slam dunk, but Toyota’s basketball robot hardly ever misses a free throw or a 3-pointer.The 207-centimeter (six-foot, 10-inch)-tall machine made five of eight 3-point shots in a demonstration in a Tokyo suburb Monday, a ratio its engineers say is worse than usual.Toyota Motor Corp.’s robot, called Cue 3, computes as a three-dimensional image where the basket is, using sensors on its torso, and adjusts motors inside its arm and knees to give the shot the right angle and propulsion for a swish.Efforts in developing human-shaped robots underline a global shift in robotics use from pre-programmed mechanical arms in limited situations like factories to functioning in the real world with people.The 2017 version of the robot was designed to make free throws.Yudai Baba, a basketball player likely representing host Japan at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, took part in the demonstration and also missed a couple of shots. If the robot could learn a few more tricks, he was ready to accept the robot on the team, he said.“We human players are still better for now,” he said.Toyota’s basketball robot Cue 3 demonstrates Monday, April 1, 2019 at a gymnasium in Fuchu, Tokyo.

It wasn’t disappointment, but a temporary power failure.Cue 3’s name is supposed to reflect the idea the technology can serve as a cue, or signal of great things to come, according to Toyota.The company plays down how the technology might prove useful. It’s more about boosting morale among engineers, making them open to ideas and challenges.In making the robot’s outer covering something like that of an armadillo, the engineers said they were just trying to avoid the white metallic look often seen on robots.The maker of the Camry sedan, Prius hybrid and Lexus luxury models has shown off various robots, including one that played a violin. Another, resembling R2-D2 of Star Wars, slides around and picks up things. At Monday’s demonstration, it handed the basketball to Cue 3.Experts say robots that can mimic human movements, even doing them better, could prove useful in various ways, including picking crops, making deliveries, and working in factories and warehouses.Stanford University Professor Oussama Khatib, who directs the university’s robotics lab, said Cue 3 demonstrates complex activities such as using sensors and nimble computation in real-time in what he called “visual feedback.”To shoot hoops, the robot must have a good vision system, be able to compute the ball’s path then execute the shot, he said in a telephone interview.“What Toyota is doing here is really bringing the top capabilities in perception with the top capabilities in control to have robots perform something that is really challenging,” Khatib said.Japan has been aggressive in developing humanoids, including those that do little more than offer cute companionship.Toyota’s rival Honda Motor Co. has its Asimo, a culmination of research into creating a walking robot that started in the 1980s. It not only can run, but also recognize faces, avoid obstacles, shake hands, pour a drink and carry a tray.When will such robots be able to slam dunk, a feat that will require running, dribbling and jumping?“In 20 years, with technological advances,” said Tomohiro Nomi, a Toyota engineer who worked on Cue 3.By: Yuri Kageyama, AP Business WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 24, 2017 – Nassau – Immigration Department officials continue to deny that they know anything about a report where a Haitian mother and child fell off the back of a truck in Andros during an immigration raid. Rights Bahamas claims the incident is real and is calling on The Bahamas Government to cease the crackdown citing that it has migrants running scared, even to the point of hurting themselves.The woman was said to have been trying to evade arrest when she fell off the back of the truck, a photo of a bruised child had been circulated on social media but no one is authenticating the image as true – at least no one other than the activist group.In a media release, Rights Bahamas said: “This behaviour on the part of the immigration officers was totally illegal. Frightened by the aggressive and illegal action of the officers, the driver sought to escape, resulting in a mother and her young child falling from the truck and sustaining injuries, the severity of which remain unknown. They were taken to a local clinic where, according to witnesses, they were detained by the Immigration officers.”Reaction to the call for a cease and desist by Rights Bahamas is outright rejected as Bahamians reacting to the report say it is the mother who put the child at risk and that anyone helping people to break the law should also be prosecuted.#MagneticMediaNews#activistcondemnimmigrationraidsphoto credit: Save the Bays Related Items:#activistcondemnimmigrationraids, #magneticmedianews
