first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi Police has arrested a man who sexually assaulted a divorcee after luring her with the false promise of marriage, said an officer on Friday. The incident was reported from Netaji Subhash Place in the national capital where a seven-month pregnant victim filed a complaint with the police on Wednesday. “The woman, 27, and a mother of two, in her complaint alleged that she was first time raped by the accused in June 2018. He raped her on the pretext of marrying her. But when he refused to fulfil his promise, the victim registered a complaint, following which he was arrested,” a senior police officer said. “During the court hearing, the accused had apologised to the victim, and with mutual consent they had agreed to tie the knot. Following this, the court had granted him bail,” he said. “After he came out on bail last year, the accused used to stay with woman and developed physical relation with her again promising to marry her. This time the victim got pregnant. When she would ask the accused to marry her, he would assault her and force for abortion,” he added. The accused is at large and a hunt is on to nab him, the officer said.last_img read more


first_imgTaipei: Two US warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait over the weekend, Taiwan’s defense ministry said Monday, in a move that Beijing said threatened to hinder US-China relations. The ministry said the ships made the passage on Sunday, sailing from south to north through the waterway that divides the self-governing island from mainland China. Beijing frequently objects to the movement of foreign military vessels in the strait based on its claim to Taiwan as its own territory, to be annexed by force if necessary. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportTaiwan’s defense ministry said US ships were free to sail through the Taiwan Strait as part of their “strategic Indo-Pacific tasks.” Despite the lack of formal diplomatic ties, the US is a key ally of Taiwan and provider of defensive weapons. China has been increasingly willing to protest actions by foreign militaries in areas it considers its home waters or sphere of influence. That especially applies to the Taiwan Strait and South China Sea, which China claims almost in its entirety. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Monday that China has expressed concern to the US about the warships. The US should handle Taiwan-related issues “prudently” in order to avoid negatively impacting its relationship with China, Geng said, adding that “the Taiwan issue is the most important and sensitive issue in Sino-US relations.”last_img read more

Redshirt-senior Hunter Callahan winds up for a shot during a match against Oklahoma on March 6 in Columbus. OSU lost, 4-3.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Lantern photographerThe Ohio State’s men’s tennis team has dominated the Big Ten for roughly a decade, but trips to Northwestern on Friday and Illinois on Sunday could be tests for the Buckeyes.“It’s going to be a very tough weekend. They’re big matches,” coach Ty Tucker said.The last time No. 11 Ohio State lost a Big Ten regular season matchup was on April 24, 2005, at Northwestern. This year, the No. 19 Wildcats are not only 8-1 at home but have won six of their last seven matches. The Buckeyes hit a rough patch with losses in two matches before entering Big Ten play for good, then swept the state of Michigan with wins over both the University of Michigan and Michigan State this past week. The wins serve as a nice reminder of what OSU can do, redshirt-senior Hunter Callahan said.“A win is always good, especially after two losses in a row,” he said. “Good just to get that feeling of winning back.”Even with the taste of winning back in the Buckeyes’ mouths, Tucker said he hasn’t forgotten their recent shortcomings.“Our math is a little bit short this year as far as getting to four (points), but we have to concentrate on Northwestern,” he said.Getting through Northwestern with a win is a feat in itself, but getting out of the state of Illinois without a loss will be another story. The Buckeyes became familiar with No. 3 Illinois at the ITA Indoor Team Championship this year when the Fighting Illini ended OSU’s run with a 4-2 win. “It is still Illinois … so there’s always going to be pressure no matter what,” he said.Tucker said he is extremely familiar with rivalry, saying it’s been a “battle” for the past 15 years with Illinois.Besides the streak of 96-straight conference wins that is on the line this weekend for OSU, Tucker said there is much more that can be lost.“Your goal at the beginning of the year is to win a Big Ten championship and host an NCAA regional. That’s definitely on the line this weekend,” he said.The Buckeyes are set to take on the Wildcats at 6 p.m. Friday in Evanston, Ill. read more

first_imgOverall, Time Warner reported $2.65 billion in operating profit through the first half (up more than 30 percent) on $12.69 billion in revenue. The company also upgraded its outlook for 2010, projecting adjusted earnings per share of at least 20 percent. That’s up from its May 5 outlook for adjusted EPS of growth at least in the mid-teens. Consumer publishing giant Time Inc. reported an operating income of $203 million through the first six months of 2010, nearly three times the $70 million it pulled in during the same period last year, according to parent company Time Warner, which reported its first-half financial earnings Wednesday.

Revenues remained steady compared to last year’s period at $919 million.Time Inc. attributed the profit gains to company-wide cost savings initiatives which resulted in lower pension expenses. It also cited higher domestic magazine revenues in print and digital. Advertising revenue during the second quarter grew 4 percent, subscription revenues stayed flat and other revenues dropped 23 percent. Meanwhile, the company says it increased its share of U.S. magazine advertising to 21 percent—a gain of 1.8 percent points from the same period last year.last_img read more


first_imgThe MPA, the Association of Magazine Media, has selected a new leader after 13 years—Mary Berner will replace outgoing Nina Link as the group’s new president and CEO effective September 17.Most recently, Berner was president and CEO of Reader’s Digest Association (RDA), a position she vacated in April 2011. Berner had guided RDA through a pre-packaged bankruptcy, officially emerging from Chapter 11 protection in February 2010.  A year later, she left the company just as it named a new board of directors.Berner was also a board member of RDA from 2007 to 2011. Under her direction, the company launched 83 websites, and 31 mobile applications; Allrecipes.com expanded into 22 countries, and Reader’s Digest Magazine became one of the Kindle’s best-selling monthly magazines. Nina Link, who has been MPA’s president and CEO for the last 13 years, announced in June she was stepping down. Her tenure at the top spot with the association was longer than any MPA president in its 93-year history.In the past, Berner served on the board of MPA—the association includes 225 domestic magazine media companies with more than 1,000 titles, nearly 50 international companies and more than 100 associate members.”I love a challenge—especially when the facts are on our side—as is the case with the strengths of magazine media,” says Berner in a release.  “I’m bullish on the fact that magazine brands offer their consumers and advertisers incredibly powerful and unique value on every platform.  I look forward to working with the MPA board to strongly and loudly push our member organization’s agenda forward.

The band did, however, premier a number of the new songs live, including at the first show of their North American tour, which kicked off May 5 in Los Angeles.Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino trades in the band’s guitar-driven swagger for a more dreamlike piano-based sound. Frontman Alex Turner conceived the album’s material while sitting at the piano, an instrument he’d never written songs on before, according to Rolling Stone.“The places my fingers would naturally fall on the piano… suggested to me this idea of a lounge-y character, which never would have occurred to me had I been playing a guitar,” said Turner. “They reminded me of things my father used to play on the piano.” Email In addition to a new musical method, the album is also very lyric-focused. The resulting songs, along with band’s the ethereal sonic backdrop, create a Bowie-esque balance of inventive melody, sonic experimentation, and lyrical intrigue.Arctic Monkeys are currently touring in Europe and will return to the U.S. for Firefly Festival in Dover, Del. on June 15 before resuming their North American run of shows on June 16 in Raleigh, N.C.

Stephanie De Sakutin/ Getty Images Efforts to rebuild Notre Dame are underway after a devastating fire ravaged the Paris landmark on Monday. The historic cathedral burned for nine hours before firefighters contained the flames, and the devastation included the loss of the cathedral’s iconic spire and part of the roof. On Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to rebuild Notre Dame. When tragedy strikes, it might seem overwhelming, especially if you’re an ocean away. Here are a few places to get you started if you’re interested in being a part of rebuilding the cathedral. Charities and nonprofits Fondation du Patrimoine has collected more than 7 million euros internationally for the Notre Dame Cathedral. Donations can be made once or monthly by credit card, check or bank transfer. The nonprofit is dedicated to preserving historical and cultural sites in France.  The Friends of Notre Dame is a 501c3 public charity. Donations to Notre Dame’s restoration can be made by credit card, through PayPal, or by sending a check to the address on the website. The charity has broken up its budget into long-term, intermediate and urgent needs for the cathedral. Urgent needs include restoring the fallen spire, the collapsed roof and the sacristy.  The Basilica of the National Shrine, also known as America’s Catholic Church, is collecting donations online and prayer requests in the wake of Monday’s fire at the cathedral.  The National Shrine encouraged the world to unite and rebuild the cathedral that has served as a place of worship for eight centuries.  The French Heritage Society, a public nonprofit, established a fund on Monday to collect donations for the restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral. You can donate online with a credit or debit card, with PayPal, send checks in the mail, or donate over the phone by contacting Benjamin Wells at the FHS Programs Membership Office, at (212) 759-6846, ext. 201. Donations are tax deductible under US law and eligible for deduction under French law.  Dozens of GoFundMe campaigns have cropped up around the world to help rebuild Notre Dame. While you can donate to these, be aware that they’re unofficial fundraisers. It’s important to always research organizations to make sure they’re reputable.   Who else is helping In addition to Macron promising to launch an immediate fundraising campaign, French philanthropists pledged donations totaling 700 million euros to rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral.  Bernard Arnault, head of LVMH; François-Henri Pinault, CEO of Kering; and L’Oreal’s Bettencourt Meyers family promised a combined 500 million euros on Tuesday. The University of Notre Dame will also donate $100,000 to the cathedral’s relief, and it said the campus basilica’s bell would toll 50 times at 6 p.m. ET Tuesday. IBM has pledged to give 1 million euros, while Apple CEO Tim Cook also tweeted that his company would donate funds. Disney reportedly pledged $5 million to the restoration efforts. Disney produced The Hunchback of Notre Dame, an animated adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel in 1996. We are heartbroken for the French people and those around the world for whom Notre Dame is a symbol of hope. Relieved that everyone is safe.

Due to these bill boards, the carrier loads 51 passengers less than its capacity.”Obstacles like hoardings, poles etc in the take off path of the runway at Mumbai airport have created operational constraints, leading to the Air India flight on Mumbai-Newark sector being operated with 51 passengers less than the capacity,” Minister of State for Civil Aviation G M Siddeshwara said in Lok Sabha.Planes have to reduce mass before taking off due to shorter take off path and it also requires more momentum to clear the high billboards, reported PTI.Few billboards in Mumbai airport are as high as a seven-storey building, whereas on most airport highways, hoardings and billboards are fixed far away or between residential buildings.”Air India had taken up the matter with the Airports Authority of India “who have removed some of the obstacles and revised the elevation of a few obstacles. This has resulted in some benefit to Air India,” Siddeshwara added.Air India’s few aircrafts have been acquired under a short-term bridge financing facility by various multinational banks, while it has sold and leased its seven out of 16 Boeing 787 Dreamliners.The airline also signed a delay Compensation Agreement with Boeing in September 2012 for delayed delivery of aircrafts.Siddeshwara added that Air India had leased five planes A-320 from China Aircraft Company for 12 years. Two more tenders for lease were issued in April and the bids received would be finalised in the course of time.Air India’s estimated total debt is ₹49,000 crore and total losses incurred from 2007-08 to 2013-14 is ₹37, 996 crore. The expected losses in 2014-15 is ₹6, 000 crore and government’s estimated capital infusion into the airline is ₹30, 231 crore by 2021, reported Hindustan Times.last_img read more
