Stunning or stupid Travelling couples Instagram photo causes outrage

first_img Travelweek Group TORONTO — You gotta do what you gotta do to get those likes on Instagram, but even if it means risking certain death?A popular Instagram couple, U.S. bloggers Kelly and Kody who go by the name @positravelty, has landed in hot water for posting a photo of them posing over the edge of an infinity pool in Ubud, Bali.Kelly, who is being held by the arms by Kody, is seen hanging on the outside of the pool, which is perched high above the ground.The photo was accompanied by the caption: “Our greatest strength in life, our most important principle, is discernment. Only you can know your body, feel the space around you and understand your capabilities. We would all do well to remember this, knowing that not every action, style or path we witness through others is or should be, replicated. At the end of the day we are to hold ourselves accountable for the decisions that we make.”More news:  Honolulu authorities investigate arsons at 3 Waikiki hotels; no injuries reportedIt has been liked over 37,000 times by the couple’s 119,000 followers.While many people complimented the photo, including @cruslann who said, “This is honestly a very powerful picture,” and @cluttermarissa who added, “True love, a powerful trust,” many others criticized the couple for putting themselves in danger.”@karan.covai wrote: “Silly stunt. Real couple won’t ever do this stunt. Those who have greatest care for their loved ones won’t ever do this silly stunt.”Another commenter, @pava.patricia, said: “If he sneezed, she could have fallen to her death! Yes, they’re physically beautiful, but risk like this wasn’t smart.”@rhuber65 didn’t mince words, saying: “Vanity and narcissism appears to be your greatest principle. You have done admirably upholding that principle.” And @fidgty07 added: “Your ‘greatest sense of life’ is obviously not common sense.”Kelly and Kody responded to their critics, assuring them that there was another pool below should Kelly had accidentally fallen.

Carter US must boost military exercises to counter Russia

Carter US must boost military exercises to counter Russia

first_img 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Sponsored Stories Top Stories Comments   Share   Western leaders say Moscow is supplying rebels with manpower, training and weapons. Russia rejects those claims.Still, military and diplomatic leaders in the meeting expressed concern about the tactics they said Russia has used in Ukraine — what Carter described as a mixture of subversion, sophisticated threat making and manipulation of information.“All this cocktail that you saw in Ukraine — is that something we’re worried about them using elsewhere? Absolutely. Was that discussed? Absolutely. It is concerning to the NATO countries for sure,” Carter said.In Ukraine, a fragile cease-fire worked out in February has been repeatedly broken, and a major battle erupted in eastern Ukraine earlier this week. Both sides blamed the other for the latest spike in violence.Carter’s meeting at the headquarters of U.S. European Command involved nearly 40 people, including the heads of the Pentagon’s Africa, Pacific, Middle East, special operations and cyber commands, as well as U.S. ambassadors from across Europe and Eastern Europe. Its aim was to assess how effective the economic sanctions and U.S.-backed military operations have been in deterring Russia and discuss what more the U.S. and allies can do. Carter also said the U.S. and others are worried President Vladimir Putin would use similar tactics elsewhere in the region and is positioning Russia as a U.S. adversary.“There are other things we need to be doing in recognition of the fact that, at the moment at least, Vladimir Putin does not seem to be reversing course,” Carter told reporters traveling with him shortly after leaving the meeting. “Therefore we need to adapt, in a long-term sense, to that reality.”Other U.S. leaders insist the sanctions have worked because they’ve battered Russia’s economy. But Carter made the distinction that they haven’t fostered change.“It’s a sign of how heedless the Russian government seems to be about the long-term welfare of its own people that it has not yet resulted in a change, in a reversal at least of course, which is what we want out of Russia,” he said.Carter’s meeting with his military commanders from around the globe, as well as 14 U.S. ambassadors from the region, came on the eve of the Group of Seven weekend summit in the Bavarian Alps, a meeting to which Putin was disinvited. Western leaders at the G-7 are expected to further condemn Russia for its suspected role in the escalating violence in Ukraine, but stricter punishments are not expected. The more-than-four-hour session came at the end of Carter’s 11-day, around-the-world trip, which focused largely on challenges in the Asia-Pacific region.U.S. officials said no decisions were made during the meeting, but Carter said the group discussed a number of actions the U.S. can take. As an example, he said increased U.S. military exercises and training in the region, including in the Baltics, have been successful.He also repeated his call for allies and partners to do more — from increasing their defense spending to participating more in the military exercises and training,And, he said, it’s “really time to make some progress” on NATO’s long discussed desire to improve its intelligence and information sharing, both in terms of Russia and the escalating threat from Islamic State militants and the growing risk they pose beyond the territories they’ve taken in Iraq and Syria.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Deloitte Consumer Spending Index Loses More Ground in December

Deloitte Consumer Spending Index Loses More Ground in December

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Consumer spending Deloitte Investors Jobs Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers Unemployment 2013-01-18 Tory Barringer January 18, 2013 450 Views Deloitte Consumer Spending Index Loses More Ground in December Sharecenter_img Consumer spending continued its backslide in December, according to professional services firm “”Deloitte””:[IMAGE]Deloitte’s Consumer Spending Index–which is made up of components measuring consumer tax burden, initial unemployment claims, real wages, and real home prices–slipped to 3.81 in December from November’s reading of 3.96. The decline continues a downward trend that started in November after nearly a year of steady gains.Most of December’s decline in spending stems from a sharp increase in initial unemployment claims following [COLUMN_BREAK]superstorm Sandy, according to Deloitte vice chairman Alison Paul. First-time claims reached 405,750 at the start of December, an increase of nearly 40,000 from the previous month.””On the plus side, consumers benefited from falling gasoline prices through the last quarter, which helped temper declining real wages,”” Paul noted. “”However, the fiscal cliff debate appears to have impacted consumer confidence late in the year, compounding the adjustment to new tax rates–all of these factors may lead to more conservative spending in the months ahead.””According to Deloitte, the tax burden on consumers reached 11.03 percent for December, up slightly from November. The company explained that an increase or decrease in tax burden can be a sign of weak or strong growth in taxable incomes.Real wages continued to fall on a year-over-year basis, slipping 0.3 percent. While wages were down, Deloitte notes that the pace of the decline leveled somewhat as gas prices fell in November.Further declines were also mitigated by improvements in the housing market, which pushed real home prices up nearly 13 percent year-over-year. in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicinglast_img read more

SAO PAULO – A biopic about the man who founded one

SAO PAULO – A biopic about the man who founded one

first_img SAO PAULO – A biopic about the man who founded one of Brazil’s largest evangelical churches has sold more tickets than any other film in recent memory in the South American country. But some have accused the church of cooking the books.The film tells the story of Bishop Edir Macedo, who founded the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God in the 1970s. Macedo is a powerful and controversial figure in Brazil who owns a media empire and has been dogged by accusations of malfeasance — allegations that the film portrays as a plot by the Catholic Church and Brazilian establishment to limit his power.A company that measures media penetration, comScore, says the film “Nada a Perder” — “Nothing to Lose” — sold more than 11.7 million tickets between its release March 29 and Thursday. That makes the film, which is being released Friday in the United States, the most attended since 2002, the first year for which comScore has Brazilian box office data. The next closest film — a 2016 movie about the life of Moses — sold more than 11.3 million tickets.But the Brazilian press has accused the church of inflating sales by buying up tickets itself. The Folha de S.Paulo newspaper sent reporters to movie theatres during the film’s opening weekend and said the screening rooms weren’t full, despite the blockbuster ticket sales. The church denies that and, in turn, accused the Brazilian media of disseminating “fake news” to damage its reputation.“The Universal (church) never bought tickets for the film ‘Nada a Perder,’” the church said in a statement to The Associated Press. “That said, part of the success of the film — and therein lies the hatred of some segments of the press — comes from the initiative of volunteers from Universal and other denominations and religions, who have organized so that the largest number of people possible can see the film.”It added that other religions do exactly the same thing: recommending to their followers things they believe in.Paris Entretenimento produced the film, and the church says it was not involved, but it has vigorously promoted it on its website as has Macedo’s Record TV network.Another part of Macedo’s media empire, Record Filmes, has helped to screen the film in prisons and for remote communities, including indigenous groups.The second most-attended film since comScore started keeping track is “Os Dez Mandamentos,” which Record Filmes produced. The third film is “Tropa de Elite 2,” the sequel to a popular Brazilian film about gang violence and police corruption in Rio de Janeiro. But comScore data shows that “Nada a Perder” may not reign for long: “Avengers: Infinity War,” which opened April 26 in Brazil, has more than 10.4 million ticket sales so far.Luis Fernando Rodrigues was among five people who saw “Nada a Perder” at a movie theatre in Sao Paulo on Thursday afternoon.“This film is part of a holy war” over the image of Macedo and his church, said the 57-year-old architect. Even the debate over how many people saw the film is part of that battle, he said.Gesturing at the empty theatre, he added: “We don’t know if it’s because of the time of day or if it’s a manipulation.”Controversy has long surrounded Macedo, a colorful character who has won both adoration and notoriety for taking on two of Brazil’s most entrenched institutions: the Catholic church and the Globo media empire. Brazil is the world’s most populous Catholic country, but evangelicals are on the rise: They account for one in five people — up from one in 20 a few decades ago — and evangelical lawmakers make up a powerful voting bloc in Congress. Macedo’s Universal church has been one of the motors of the group’s growth.Macedo was raised a Catholic but the movie shows him searching for spiritual meaning elsewhere. In the film, his family experiments with traditional healers to cure his sister’s asthma and finally joins an evangelical church. But he ends up rejecting that church as too elitist and finally founds his own.Over the years, he and his preachers have drawn the ire of Catholics for railing against their “idolatry” of saints and calling the pope the Antichrist.But they have also drawn fervent followers, who have turned the Universal church into a powerful player in Brazilian politics and culture. Macedo’s nephew and a bishop in the church, Marcelo Crivella was elected mayor of Rio de Janeiro in 2016, and the Universal church says it has 9 million followers in 110 countries, 7 million of whom are in Brazil.Macedo himself has been dogged by accusations of financial crimes and exploiting his followers. He was briefly jailed in 1990s amid accusations of extortion, tax evasion and fraud — an episode portrayed in the film as proof of the power of his message and the great lengths that the Brazilian establishment will go to silence it.In 2011, federal prosecutors accused Macedo of false representation, larceny by fraud, money laundering and forming a criminal association — all of which he denied. A judge rejected some of those charges, and the statute of limitations expired for others. According to the Sao Paulo Federal Justice system, the money-laundering charge is still pending.

Neophytou we dont take instructions from the Turkish side

first_imgThe Greek Cypriot side will not accept instructions from Turkey, ruling Disy leader Averof Neophytou said on Sunday, repeating that the reason for the deadlock in the talks was due to the upcoming Turkish constitutional referendum and not the House vote on Enosis.Speaking on the sidelines of an event in Pano Polimidhia to honour Eokoa hero Gregoris Afxentiou, Neophytou was asked to comment on statement by UN Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide who has said the reason for the impasse was the vote allowing a 1950 referendum on union with Greece to be marked in schools.Eide says the move, which angered the Turkish side and prompted Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci to walk away from the talks until the “mistake was rectified”, had dealt a serious blow to trust between the two leaders.“I will not comment on any reports,” said Neophytou. “I will reaffirm the position of the Greek Cypriot side and the President of the Republic, as has been said many times recently, that we are ready to return to table. It was not President Anastasiades who left.”Asked to comment on Akinci’s request to reverse the House decision, Neophytou said: “We do not accept instructions either from the Turkish Cypriot side nor from Turkey. We have our own opinions and positions.”Neophytou said history – meaning the Enosis referendum – could not be wiped out and added that as the party said previously and has put forward as a proposal that such issues as commemorating the 1950 referendum should not concern the House but rather the ministry of education.The original proposal for the event to be marked in schools was tabled by far-right Elam. Disy abstained from the vote, allowing it to go through. Akel was the only party to vote against.Commenting on the political crisis that has erupted in the north where motions have been filed for no confidence and early elections, Neophytou said:“These are internal problems for the Turkish Cypriot community and are related to the referendum in Turkey and to be honest, this is the real reason for the current impasse.”You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.

But Sunday’s defeat extends his poor run against the more experienced Chen,上海龙凤论坛RJ, who tweeted that "if true the timing of these large sales of stock by Equifax manager is quite troubling"A company spokeswoman Ines Gutzmer said in an email Thursday night: "The three executives who sold a small percentage of their Equifax shares on Tuesday August 1 and Wednesday August 2 had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time they sold their shares"Gutzmer did not immediately respond to questions Friday about when the executives learned of the breach and whether the company would be conducting an internal review of their actions Equifax’s stock has tumbled nearly 14 percent in early Friday tradingDespite the stock sales the executives still own thousands of shares of Equifax stock worth millions of dollars"If you look at it on its face people will jump to the conclusion that they knew and that they were trying to cash out" said Stuart Slotnick a corporate defense attorney at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney But no one should jump to conclusions he said "There is nothing wrong with [them] cashing out if it’s not connected to the news""It would be incredible if these sophisticated insiders would sell their shares based upon news They are sophisticated executives and they know full well that their selling the shares triggers public disclosures It just doesn’t make sense that the CFO would sell a small lot of shares before a news event" Slotnick saidTo prove insider trading federal prosecutors would have to show the executives knew about the nonpublic information when they decided to sell their stock often a tough task experts saidThe company’s board of directors should conduct an independent review of the executives’ actions including surveying their email traffic and interviewing the executives as well as their colleagues said Bart Friedman a senior counsel at Cahill Gordon & Reindel who advises boards on matters including corporate compliance and enforcement challenges"I would be aggressive in finding out the facts and I wouldn’t necessarily depend on what they tell me" Friedman said It would be unusual for such high-level executives to not quickly learn of such significant news he said "If anybody in the company knew it would be shocking if they didn’t learn about it" he saidYouth wing of Southern Kaduna Peoples Union SOKAPU has alerted the federal government international community and other stakeholders to call Governor Nasiru Ahmed El-Rufai to order and to stop him from sowing seeds of discord among the people by the conversion of some chiefdoms to Emirate councils in Southern Kaduna Nasiru Jagaba leader SOKAPU Youth Wing while addressing newsmen in Kaduna Thursday said “We are calling on all well-meaning individuals corporate groups other state governments the Federal Government and the international community to call el-Rufai to order He should not be allowed to sow seeds of conflicts that will outlive his unfortunate government “It could be recalled that last month on his Twitter handle El-Rufai twitted a lie that the Chiefs of Kauru Kagarko Kajuru and Lere all in Southern Kaduna had requested for a change of their royal titles (nomenclature) to ‘Emirs’ in which he promptly granted “His revelation created anger and tension not only in the affected areas but the entire Southern Kaduna Somehow people showed restrain in the typical peaceful and tolerant nature of our people “El-Rufai’s who has since crumbled politically socially and has economically destroyed Kaduna state is now gambling with religion to appease to Muslims most who have long concluded on him as a total failure “The governor who has not initiated and completed one single viable project in the past three years is trying to sow conflict between Muslims and Christians as a means of distracting attention from his humongous failures “El-Rufai does not only nurse a pathological hatred for Southern Kaduna his present action shows that he cares even little if Kaduna state burns as long as he hoists his hate policies over us” The youths noted that by implication every Christian and all non-Muslims in the affected new Emirates will come under the customs and tradition of Islamic rule “It has now become impossible for anyone among the majority of the population of the new emirates to aspire to the stool unless they convert to Islam “The governor is desperately doing everything within and outside his powers to denigrate our history culture and tradition by imposing Islamic enclaves in these areas This is to create a deceptive narration that Muslims are indeed the owners of these lands “By this development the governor is assisting the new Emirs to go into land grabbing and motivate unplanned immigration of Muslims to settle on the lands to strengthened the new emirates” the youth lamented They explained “Anytime the governor is not downgrading the population of Southern Kaduna from 51 per cent of the population of the state (according to the 2006 Census) to 30 per cent he is bent on seeing that the highest mass of sacked workers under his grim regime are from Southern Kaduna “Governor Nasir el-Rufai has not only tried to destroy tertiary education in Southern Kaduna by shutting down every the tertiary institutions there for nearly a year for not just cause he also imposed a punishing 24-hour curfew for weeks over some parts of Southern Kaduna with the purpose of destroying us economically all in 2016 Yet under that period the affected areas had come under the siege of his Fulani kinsmen “His diabolical hate for Southern Kaduna is not only reflected in the complete absence of any serious project in the area but demonstrated in his latest dangerous elevation of four chiefs to Emirs thus creating of new Emirates over these chiefdoms in Southern Kaduna whose communities are essentially non-Muslims “Instead of heeding to wise counsel to withdraw the idea a letter dated 30 May 2018 signed by Adamu M Mansur Permanent Secretary Ministry of Local Government Affairs confirmed that the Chief of Kauru Kauru LGA had indeed been upgraded from a Chief to a Muslim religious ruler and had become Emir This was without any sort of consultation with our people “To spite us further the Commissioner for Local Government Affairs Prof Kabiru Mato issued a statement affirming the belligerent position of the governor by insisting that the Chiefs of Kagarko Kajuru Kauru and Lere chiefdoms requested for a change of nomenclature and was approved In other words these Chiefdoms have automatically become Emirates “Yet Apart from the unending curse of armed herdsmen plundering and killing our people in Southern Kaduna; the unprecedented neglect of the place under the present government the issue of change of status of the four chiefdoms have never been a source of concern at any time to our people “Anyone who has the most rudimentary information of Southern Kaduna will first and foremost affirmed that the four LGAs so affected are overwhelming Christians with sprinkling of Muslims settlements in some semi-urban areas Even at that these settlements such as Kauru Kagarko Kajuru and Lere stand like tiny islands in a sea of Christian communities In the hundreds of years of Islamic history in Northern Nigeria no local government area of Southern Kaduna has ever been traditionally Islamic Not even by 10 per cent” The youth added “We totally and completely reject and denounce the title of ‘Emir’ and the foisting of emirate system on Kauru Kagarko Kajuru and Lere Chiefdoms “We want the status quo to stand Both Muslims Christians and other faiths have no issues with the ‘Chiefs’ and ‘Chiefdoms’ “We call on affected LGAs to remain peaceful and law abiding but should never recognise the new ‘Emirs’ and to also disregard the new ‘Emirates’ “Unless a referendum on these is reached the new creations of El-Rufai is not binding on our people”Equifax.
