Crews push to contain California fires, search for bodies

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 18:59:58 -0400

(image) By Jim Christie SANTA ROSA, Calif. (Reuters) - Crews fought their way across rugged, steep terrain on Tuesday in a push to gain full control of the deadliest wildfires in California history, as search-and-rescue teams picked through an ashy moonscape of destroyed homes looking for victims. "There are still some concerns that if the west winds come up or we get some erratic winds they could push our lines, but as of right now we're looking pretty good," Steve Crawford, a fire operations chief, told reporters at a briefing in Sonoma County in the heart of California's celebrated wine country. Already 41 people have been confirmed killed in the fires, which erupted last week and were driven by dry, hot winds into Northern California communities, giving residents little or no chance to escape.

Top Syrian general killed by Isil landmine near Deir Ezzor

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 10:09:33 -0400

(image) A senior Syrian commander and one of President Bashar al-Assad’s most trusted generals has been killed during an operation against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil). Brig Gen Issam Zahreddine, a field commander in the elite Republican Guard, died after a convoy he was travelling in hit a landmine on Wednesday morning as they drove through Hawija Saqr near Deir Ezzor province.  Zahreddine, who was in his late 50s and instantly recognisable by his full grey beard, had been leading 7,000 troops in the battle to retake the eastern city of Deir Ezzor from the jihadists.  He also led government offensives against armed opposition in the central Homs province and near the capital, Damascus, in the earlier days of the conflict. Issam Zahreddine addresses his troops in Deir Ezzor His death will be a major blow to the regime, which has lost huge numbers of high-ranking soldiers and generals over the course of the six-year war.  He was a controversial figure who was pictured last year posing next to hanging corpses which appeared to have been tortured before being cut into pieces.  In another, he is seen walking beside a line of bodies so long he and some of his troops stopped before they even reached the last one. He is named in a lawsuit filed by the family of the late veteran war correspondent Marie Colvin, who was killed in an artillery attack in Baba Amr district of Homs.  Zahreddine had been in charge of an operation to root out rebels in the central city at the time in February 2012.  The Colvin family alleges that Zahreddine, after learning of the Sunday Times journalist’s whereabouts, ordered a targeted artillery attack on the makeshift opposition media centre where she had been staying.  The regime has denied the attack on the American was deliberate.  And last month the major gave an interview warning Syrian refugees not to return to the country, saying the army would “never forgive or forget”. "If you know what is good for you, none of you return,” he said in a Syrian state TV interview. The commander later apologised and said his comment was misinterpreted, and he was only referring to Isil and rebel fighters who had killed Syrian troops. He was remembered online on Wednesday by government supporters as a hero who gave his life for his country, but by opposition backers as a war criminal. Several top Syrian, Russian and Iranian commanders have been killed in recent months in fighting around Deir Ezzor.  The province is the last remaining stronghold of Islamic State, which has put up a tough fight to retain control of the strategic oil-rich region.  With the defeat of Isil in its former capital, Raqqa, this week, the battle against the group will now centre on Deir Ezzor where it has now largely been confined and under attack from both Syrian troops and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

Critics have accused Facebook of failing to properly acknowledge and deal with the Russia problem.

Donald Trump drops 92 places in Forbes list of wealthiest Americans

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 17:13:14 -0400

(image) President Donald Trump’s ranking in the Forbes list of wealthiest Americans has dropped, as the magazine said the value of some of his Manhattan real estate holdings has declined recently. Forbes ranked the first billionaire president as the 248th-wealthiest person in America and put his wealth at $3.1 billion (£2.4 billion). The year before, he was ranked 156th and Forbes said he was worth $3.7 billion. As a candidate, Trump said his net worth was more than $10 billion, but Forbes pegged that figure at $4.5 billion in September 2015. By Forbes’ estimates, Trump’s wealth has fallen 31 percent in two years. According to Forbes, half of Trump’s wealth comes from New York City real estate. It says the value of luxury real estate is down, especially around Fifth Avenue. That sharply reduced the value of Trump Tower and other properties Trump owns or has stakes in. Forbes also said some of Trump’s golf properties declined in value and that he spent $66 million on the presidential campaign as well as $25 million to settle a fraud lawsuit brought by former students in his defunct Trump University programme for real estate investors.

"Ironically, the very people, political leaders, who are supposed to build the nation have become the greatest threat to the peace and stability of the nation," Chebukati told journalists.

Texas judge postpones execution of 'tourniquet killer'

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 18:27:09 -0400

(image) A Texas judge, acting on requests from prosecutors, halted the planned execution on Wednesday of a man known as the "tourniquet killer" for the grisly method used to murder five girls and young women in the Houston area whom he also raped. The order from Harris County Judge Maria Jackson to put a 90-day stay on the execution was issued a few hours before Anthony Shore, 55, was set to be put to death by lethal injection at the state's death chamber in Huntsville at 6 p.m. (2300 GMT). District attorneys in Harris County, which includes Houston, and neighboring Montgomery County, requested the stay to examine Shore's claim that another death row inmate tried to persuade him to take the blame for a murder for which the other inmate had been convicted.

Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police  

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 10:54:09 -0400

(image) A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?

Las Vegas gunman's estate could offer rare redress for victims

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 17:59:46 -0400

(image) By Tina Bellon NEW YORK (Reuters) - Victims of mass shootings in the United States often win little or no damages from perpetrators but the Las Vegas massacre may be different because the shooter is thought to have been a wealthy man, lawyers said. While there are often few assets to collect from the young men who typically carry out these killings, Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, 64, is thought to have had multi-million-dollar investments in buildings across Texas and California. "It definitely depends on the assets in the estate whether you pursue that claim," said Theida Salazar, a Los Angeles attorney who represented one of the victim's families in the 2015 shooting in San Bernadino, California.

"Anything that's good for Airbus is bad for Boeing of course," said Jim Corridore, an analyst at CFRA Research, summarizing the reaction of many observers to the Airbus-Bombardier venture.
