Jean-Christophe Beaulieu added a two-point convert while Ward booted two field goals.Williams provided the first half’s biggest play, a Grey Cup-record 97-yard punt return TD at 14:59 of the second. After taking the ball, Williams nearly slipped heading upfield but an Ottawa defender engaged with a blocker slid on by, allowing Williams to hit the open field, then run past punter Richie Leone to put Calgary ahead 21-11.Williams provided the entertainment factor in an otherwise sloppy opening half. The two teams combined for four turnovers (three picks and a fumble), some ugly drops and eight punts.Mitchell was 14-of-21 passing for 182 yards and two TDs with two interceptions. Redblacks quarterback Trevor Harris never seemed to be in any rhythm despite having time to look downfield, completing 8-of-17 passes for 132 yards with a touchdown and interception.Ottawa’s most consistent offensive weapon was William Powell, who ran nine times for 58 yards while sporting bring neon orange shoes before changing to white ones at halftime.

CALGARY – Terry Williams helped end the Calgary Stampeders end their Grey Cup misery.Williams had a record 97-yard punt-return touchdown on a slippery Commonwealth Stadium turf Sunday night to lead Calgary past the Ottawa Redblacks 27-16 in the Grey Cup.And crowd goes wild as the stamps have done it! Grey Cup is theirs! It looks like the third time is really a charm. #YYC @660NEWS— Brittany Rosen (@CityBrittany) November 26, 2018Calgary finally won the CFL title in its third straight appearance. The Stampeders lost 39-33 in overtime to Ottawa in 2016 before dropping a 27-24 decision last year to the Toronto Argonauts.Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell – the CFL’s most outstanding player this season after tossing a league-best 35 TDs – was the game MVP with two touchdown passes but also two interceptions. Stampeders receiver Lemar Durant was named the outstanding Canadian with four catches for 30 yards and a TD and a 22-yard run.Ottawa – in its third Grey Cup in four years – appeared to score on Greg Ellingson’s acrobatic one-handed grab in the fourth quarter but replays showed the ball hit the turf. The Redblacks ended up turning the ball over on downs at the Calgary seven-yard line with just over eight minutes remaining.After Ottawa turned the ball over on downs again, Calgary’s Jamar Wall and Tre Roberson followed up with interceptions on consecutive Redblacks possessions. Roberson’s pick came with 1:22 to play.Calgary players will receive the $16,000 winner’s share while the Redblacks get $8,000 apiece.A Commonwealth Stadium gathering of 55,819 watched the opening kickoff in 1 C conditions with an 11 kilometre-an-hour wind.

During the pre-game warmups, many Stampeders wore shoes featuring short, traditional turf cleats or those with a flat rubber sole.Ottawa head coach Rick Campbell downplayed the field conditions.“It’s alright, it is what it is,” he said before the game. “It’s the CFL.”But it became apparent early footing would be an issue. That was especially clear with 38 seconds left in the first quarter when Williams had both feet slip from beneath him while returning a missed 47-yard Lewis Ward field goal try.Rene Paredes put Calgary ahead 27-14 with a 29-yard field goal at 2:54 of the fourth. It was set up by Wynton McManis’s recovery of Diontae Spencer’s fumble on a punt return at the Ottawa 25-yard line.Calgary went into the fourth leading 24-14 thanks to Paredes’s 34-yard field goal at 11:24 of the third. It came after Ward’s 41-yard boot at 7:56.last_img read more

Moroccan Escapes Swiss Prison While at Doctors Appointment

Rabat – A 23-year-old Moroccan prisoner escaped on Thursday during a doctor’s visit in Frauenfeld, Switzerland, reported the Swiss daily Blick. Local police confirmed that the prisoner, who is currently in the open, is not a danger for the population because he was not imprisoned for a “violent crime.” The police are still trying to track down the prisoner, who escaped with handcuffs on, with the use of scent hounds. A similar incident occurred on Wednesday, when a 22-year-old Algerian escaped while at a doctor’s appointment in the Swiss Gommiswald municipality.Read Also: Morocco Aims to Be in Top 50 Countries for Doing Business in 2021On the same day, the police found and arrested the Algerian detainee who had been in custody for over a month on a charge of burglary.

Darfur head of African UnionUN mission urges immediate release of abducted staff

29 August 2009The head of the joint African Union-United Nations peacekeeping mission in the strife-torn Sudanese region of Darfur has called for the immediate and unconditional release of two staff members who were abducted early Saturday. The mission, known as UNAMID, has not released the names or nationalities of the two international civilian staff – one man and one woman.The two were abducted at gunpoint by four or five armed men from their residence in the West Darfur town of Zalingei at 4:30 a.m. local time and taken to an unknown destination, according to information provided by the mission.Rodolphe Adada, the Joint Special Representative for Darfur and head of UNAMID, “called for the immediate and unconditional release of the two staff members, urging their abductors to return them unharmed.” The Security Council established UNAMID in 2007 to try to quell the violence in Darfur, where an estimated 300,000 people have been killed and 2.7 million others displaced as a result of conflict pitting rebels against Government forces and allied Janjaweed militiamen since 2003. read more

Rwanda UN genocide tribunal sentences former army chief to 30 years jail

Augustin Bizimungu, who served as chief of staff of the Rwandan armed forces, was found guilty of six counts of genocide, crimes against humanity for murder, extermination and rape and violations of articles of the Geneva Conventions.But the three-judge panel at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) acquitted him on a count of conspiracy to commit genocide and dismissed a charge of complicity to commit genocide.Prosecutors told the tribunal that Mr. Bizimungu had been instrumental in the organization of the genocide, in which an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slain – often by machete – in less than 100 days starting in April 1994.He reportedly gave an order to “exterminate the small cockroaches” on the first day of the genocide. Defence lawyers had argued that he had little control over his subordinates who carried out killings.Three other senior military officers were found guilty today of similar war crimes charges in the same trial as that of Mr. Bizimungu.François-Xavier Nzuwonemeye, who served as commander of the Reconnaissance battalion in the Rwandan army, and Innocent Sagahutu, his second-in-command, were each sentenced to 20 years in prison.Augustin Ndindiliyimana, who was chief of staff of the national gendarmerie, will be released immediately after he was sentenced to the time he has served in prison since his arrest in Belgium in January 2000. 17 May 2011The United Nations tribunal set up after the 1994 genocide in Rwanda today convicted the country’s former army chief of committing numerous war crimes and sentenced him to 30 years in prison. read more

No 10 hits back over claims that May was lilylivered on immigration

first_imgSir Craig also describes Boris Johnson’s “flip-flopping” over the weekend in which he finally came out and put himself at the head of the Leave campaign.He said that the day before the announcement, the former London mayor sent a text to Mr Cameron warning him that he would be campaigning for Leave, only to send a second message suggesting he could back Remain. The following day Mr Cameron apparently received a final text from Mr Johnson saying he would be backing Leave, just nine minutes before he publicly announced his intentions in a chaotic press conference. A new knight of the realm should remember what knights were famous for in the past – chivalry, decency and humility and bravery. Not one of these is now applicable in any shape or formIain Duncan Smith Theresa May hit back last night at claims that David Cameron believed she was “lily-livered” on migration, by revealing that she wrote to him twice in the run up to the EU referendum calling for stronger border controls.Responding to the claims contained in the book All Out War, by Tim Shipman, political editor of The Sunday Times, sources yesterday took the extraordinary step of revealing that in November 2014 and May last year, Mrs May, the then home secretary, wrote to Mr Cameron urging him to put stronger restrictions on free movement at the heart of any EU deal. It came after it was alleged that Mrs May told him to drop plans for an “emergency brake” on EU migrants because it would be opposed by Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor.Downing Street responded by saying that on November 21 2014, she called for a “return to the original principle of freedom of movement” where EU citizens should only be able to come to work in the UK if they have a firm job offer.In the second intervention, on May 21 2015, they claimed she highlighted the importance of securing “real reform” of free movement, specifically arguing that an emergency brake would be “crucial” in helping Britain to cut the number of EU migrants.In the end Mr Cameron did a deal with Brussels to cut the benefits paid to new arrivals, which was rejected by voters during the EU referendum.Mrs May’s allies yesterday also accused Mr Cameron’s former senior aide of trying to “undermine the new Government” after claiming that she was an “enemy agent” for Brexit. Sir Craig Oliver, former director of communications for David Cameron, arrives in Downing StreetCredit:Carl Court/Getty Sir Craig Oliver, who was Mr Cameron’s director of communications, said in his own book that Mrs May refused to assist the then prime minister’s campaign to keep Britain in the EU.Mrs May eventually backed Mr Cameron’s Remain side, but made only one notable intervention during the almost six-month campaign.This led to Downing Street nicknaming her “submarine May” because of her habit of disappearing when Mr Cameron asked for help, it is alleged.Iain Duncan Smith, the former work and pensions secretary, accused Sir Craig of trying to “rewrite history” and said he should “get behind Theresa May, instead of carping”.He said: “Theresa May was nicknamed ‘submarine May’, according to Sir Craig Oliver. A dose of humility would not go amiss. A new knight of the realm should remember what knights were famous for in the past – chivalry, decency and humility and bravery. Not one of these is now applicable in any shape or form.”The present Prime Minister needs our support. The referendum vote has been and gone. You cannot rewrite history. They should learn that.”Sir Patrick McLoughlin, the Conservative Party chairman, also denied the claims. He said: “This is a book that has been written after the event. You have got to have certain spicy things in a book to sell it. I don’t blame Craig for doing that. At the time, Theresa was very much part of the Remain campaign.”Another ally of Mrs May suggested that the comments had been intended to “destabilise” the new Government.Sir Craig said: “Iain appears to have got the wrong end of the stick. I have not made the specific allegations he claims. The book is a sincere and honest attempt to explain what went wrong, and I take full responsibility for the mistakes made by the campaign.”Sir Craig said that Mrs May failed to support Mr Cameron on 13 separate occasions before she did reluctantly “come off the fence” for Remain, but only after her then leader gave her a dressing down via telephone.

Sunil Narines bowling action reported in PSL

(ESPNcricinfo)- Sunil Narine has once again been reported for a suspect bowling action, this time during the Pakistan Super League game between Lahore Qalandars and Quetta Gladiators on March 14. This means he has been placed on the PSL’s watch list, but can continue to play the tournament unless reported again. The PCB will pass on the match officials’ report on Narine’s action to Cricket West Indies (CWI).“Mr Narine has now been placed on the warning list and may continue to be selected to play and bowl for his team in the PSL,” the PCB said in a statement. “As the PSL follows the ICC regulations on illegal bowling actions, if a player is reported [again] while on the warning list, the player shall be suspended from bowling for the remainder of the PSL tournament.“The match officials report on Mr Narine’s bowling action will be sent to the West Indies Cricket Board and he will have to go through the process that is followed by the West Indies Cricket Board, for suspected illegal bowling actions.”The West Indies offspinner has had his action reported several times in the past. During the Champions League T20 in 2014, he was reported twice in two matches and missed the final.He pulled out of West Indies’ World Cup 2015 squad to give himself time to work on his bowling action following that, returned during the IPL, and was reported once again during that tournament. After testing, his offbreaks were banned, but later in the tournament he was given a “final warning” by the BCCI and struck off the watch list.He returned to international duty in November 2015, only to be reported once again during his first series back – limited-overs games against Sri Lanka. He was suspended from bowling – even while the No. 1 bowler in the ICC rankings for ODIs and T20Is – at the end of November, and missed the 2016 World T20 as well to work on his action. He was cleared to bowl again ahead of IPL 2016.Narine was one of only two players retained by his IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of this season, which begins on April 7, and questions remain over whether this will affect his participation in the tournament. It is unlikely to affect it, unless he is called for a second time in the PSL, or CWI runs tests that find his action to be illegal.

Dual names to return to Dingle this year

first_imgDingle is known worldwide. It’s a brand name.With large numbers of tourists expected to descend on the town in the coming months, Fitzgerald said it was essential that tourists could find their way.“It was confusing,” he said. “Americans and Europeans would typically hire a car and drive themselves here and the maps would say Dingle.”While the signs leading to the town are set to the change, signs within the Gaeltacht area itself will remain in Irish only.Read: 5 off-the-beaten track places in Ireland you really should visit > NAVIGATING TO DINGLE is to get that little bit easier from the end of next month, as road signs leading to the tourist hotspot will carry its name in both Irish and English.Road signs to the Kerry destination are to carry both ‘Dingle’ and ‘Daingean Uí Chúis’, after years of lobbying by locals after the English version was dropped in 2005.Renamed to ‘An Daingean’, a 2006 plebiscite showed that 90 per cent of voters wanted the names ‘Dingle’ and ‘Daingean Uí Chúis’ reinstated.Speaking to, Fine Gael councillor Séamus Cosaí Fitzgerald said that the change of name had been a “big issue” to local people.“People have great pride in their town and when the name was removed from them without any real public consultation, they were angry,” he said.last_img read more

Weather Eye Quick switch to summer swelter could come about July 5

first_imgI went down to Long Beach for the weekend, and Friday evening there was cool, cloudy and damp. Damp as in raining. I mean, there were mud puddles even.In contrast, Vancouver was warm and humid, but dry.The drizzle began to wane by midmorning Saturday, and the skies had lifted and the rain had stopped at midafternoon. I guess this was about the time the light rain began in the Vancouver area.So nice to share the wealth, isn’t it? With today being the first day of July, it appears a trough of low pressure will dominate our weather scene until after the Fourth. Then when July 5 dawns, a massive ridge of high pressure — currently over the desert southwest — is forecast to slowly move northwestward. This means that summer could really start.If this all pans out, this time next week we could be sweltering, with temperatures in the 80s and 90s. Yes, indeed, our switch to summer mode usually happens quickly.I had email last week from Amboy resident Ken McGoffin about my recent statement that summer usually begins on July 5: “Gotta disagree. … Summer here starts on July 13 and ends on Aug. 21. Like it or not, we have to endure 40 days and 40 nights of reasonably dry, warm weather. Must be something Biblical about the area! I downloaded local archived weather data and used Mathcad to analyze and plot it. That’s the ‘guaranteed’ dry stretch — sort of — summer here is more about dry than warm! Yeah, I’ll grant a week more on each end, maybe. But that’s it around here.”Patrick Timm is a local weather specialist. His column appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Reach him at read more

Isolation rooms used in Clark County schools

first_imgWhile school officials have removed a controversial isolation booth at an elementary school in Longview, Clark County school representatives say a number of local schools have similar spaces to restrict and calm aggressive behavior in students with special needs who may be a danger to themselves or others.Although Clark County districts have various names for the spaces — resolution rooms, quiet rooms, calming rooms, safety rooms and even seclusion intervention spaces — all districts reported that the rooms are used as a last resort and never are used for discipline.“Sometimes, students have difficulty controlling themselves,” said Denny Waters, director of special education for Battle Ground Public Schools. “Students can lose it. They punch, kick, scream, yell. Using the room is a way to help the student calm down and to get control of their emotions.”Tight regulationsAll special education students must have an Individualized Education Program, or IEP, but only some IEPs include an aversion therapy plan that involves the possible use of a calming room. State regulations require schools to follow strict guidelines in using these spaces. Parents have signed off on the plan in advance, and they must be notified if their child is placed in a room. The staff must be thoroughly trained, and a student in a calming room must be supervised by an adult at all times.Longview School District suspended the use of a padded isolation booth last month at Mint Valley Elementary after a photo of the closet-sized space was posted on Facebook, raising concerns it was being used for punishment.last_img read more

The Predator is Coming to Ghost Recon Wildlands Tomorrow

first_img The Most Anticipated Games of 2017 Stay on target Ubisoft has announced a most unusual and unexpected crossover. The Predator is making its way into Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Starting tomorrow, players can hunt and be hunted by the legendary movie monster during a special event. The free update will also add a number of items inspired by the first Predator movie.The Predator is very much like the creature from the films. It has powerful weapons like shoulder lasers and arm blades. To make matters worse for players, the alien can also cloak itself and become nearly invisible. As you would expect, taking down the Predator isn’t easy even for a party of four. However, defeating the being rewards players with exclusive items, including the Predator’s mask which allows users to see in “Predator vision.”Wildlands‘ in-game store offers the Predator Pack which has 15 new customizable items inspired by the first Predator film. This includes weapons and even a new close combat move. Wildlands‘ PVP mode, Ghost War, is even getting some Predator-inspired goodies. The best being a class of soldier inspired by Dutch (Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character) who can go into a “battle rage mode.” This ability is useful when fighting the powerful Predator.The folks over at Ubisoft are being fans of Predator and wanted to honor the first film as best as they could. “The mission is built to recreate some of the tension felt by Dutch and his crew in the original Predator movie,” said Nouredine Abboud, senior producer at Ubisoft. “You first discover hints about the Predator’s presence before actually getting to meet and fight him. Getting that feeling of being swallowed by the surrounding jungle was something we really wanted to convey. And of course, the music takes a big part in creating the tension.”Expect the Predator Special Event to run from December 14 through early January. If you own Ghost Recon: Wildlands or are thinking about buying it, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this. For more information about the event and how the Predator works within the framework of Wildlands, make sure to follow this link.last_img read more

Microsoft Visual C Redistributable information

first_imgMicrosoft Visual C++ Redistributable information by Martin Brinkmann on April 10, 2017 in Tutorials – Last Update: June 23, 2019 – 11 commentsIf you check the list of installed programs on a Windows PC that you have used for some time, you may notice that it has several, often a lot, Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable installation listings.The PC that I use to write this article for instance has three Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, eight Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable, two Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable, three Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable, and two Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable installations listed on that page.Questions that may come to mind include why there are so many same-year versions installed, and whether you need all of those, or if you can simply keep the most recent version of each year and get rid of all the others.If you like your PC clean and tidy, you may want to remove some of those for instance.Purpose of Visual C++ RedistributableDevelopers who create programs for Windows using Microsoft Visual C++ — previously available as a standalone but now part of Microsoft Visual Studio — may use so-called standard libraries that exist already to add functionality to their programs. This saves time, and is often better than having to reinvent the wheel by creating the functionality from scratch.When these libraries are used, developers may either include what is required to power these functions in their programs, or they may use a Visual C++ Redistributable instead for that.When a developer decides to use redistributables, those do get installed on the user’s PC if not installed already. That’s one benefit of using redistributables, as programs may all use a redistributable that is already installed on the Windows PC.This does not explain however why you may see five, ten or even twenty different versions of the Microsoft Visual c++ Redistributable installed on your Windows machine.You can check the installed versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package on your Windows machine in the following ways:Any version: Use the shortcut Windows-Pause to open the Control Panel. Select Control Panel Home, and on the page that opens Programs and Features.Windows 10: Use Windows-I to open the Settings application. If you use the Creators Update version or newer, select Apps > Apps & Features, and scroll down until you find the packages listed. If you use an older version of Windows 10, select System, and find the application listings there.Why so many?Windows may ship with some Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable installations already, but most are installed when you install programs that require them on the system.There are a couple of reasons why you see this many of them installed on your computer:32-bit and 64-bit versions are made available. While 32-bit Windows users will only see 32-bit versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable version, you may see both installed on 64-bit versions of the operating system.Multiple builds may exist for any main version of Visual C++. Eleven different versions of Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable exist for instance, and they may all be installed next to each other.The main reason why you may see so many versions of the same year listed on your PC is that Microsoft never released a unified redistributable for a given year.If a developer uses a particular version of a standard library, the matching redistributable version needs to be installed on the system to ensure that the program runs on the Windows PC.While it may also run if a newer version is installed, this is not always the case and may result in error messages on load, and the termination of the program.This means that you should not remove the different builds of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable from your machine if a program that relies on it is still installed on the system.In worst case, you end up with one redistributable installation for any program that requires them on your computer.Universal C RuntimeMicrosoft changed the system with the release of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable, and consequently also with the 2017 and 2019 releases.These use a universal runtime so that only one (the latest one) needs to be installed instead of all of them.You can check out additional information on the Universal C Runtime here.Things to tryNote: before you start, consider creating a backup of the system so that you can restore the system if you run into issues removing installed redistributables from the operating system. The worst that can happen however is that programs refuse to run.Programs that you remove from your system won’t remove the redistributable, even if it was installed during program installation. The reason for this behavior is that other programs may rely on the redistributable as well.Removing these installations comes down to trial and error, as there is no easy way of linking programs to redistributable versions.One option that you have is to compare installation dates of the redistributable installations with program installations. If you find matching dates, you can assume that those are linked, and that the redistributable is still needed.If you don’t find matching dates, you cannot conclude however that the redistributable is no longer needed, as programs that you installed afterwards may require it as well.You could try and remove the oldest versions of each year first, and see how that goes. It may take a lot of testing to get it right though, and may not be worth it if you consider that all redistributable installations combined use a couple of hundred Megabytes tops when installed.It may be better to keep all versions installed just to be on the safe side of things, and avoid any issues with programs refusing to start after the removal.Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages downloadsYou may use the following links to download the most recent versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages. The downloads include 32-bit and 64-bit versions if supported.Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2015 Update 3Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (Installer)Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (Web Installer) Visual Studio 2010 SP1Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 (Installer)TL;DRVisual C++ Redistributable files get installed when you install a program that requires them, when you install or update Windows, or when you install them directly.They are used by programmers who use standard libraries in Visual Studio.Programs require specific versions, and may not run when these versions are removed (if older or newer versions of the same year are still available).Now You: How do you deal with Visual C++ Redistributable installations?SummaryArticle NameMicrosoft Visual C++ Redistributable informationDescriptionThe tutorial provides you with information on Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages that are installed on your Windows machine.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Auschwitz survivors mark liberation anniversary

first_imgOSWIECIM, Poland (AP) – A European Jewish leader condemned anti-Semitism as a crime on Monday as Auschwitz survivors and Israeli officials marked 69 years since the liberation of the Nazi death camp.The ceremony at the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial took place on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, established by the United Nations in memory of some 6 million Holocaust victims, and some 1.5 million victims of Auschwitz, who were mostly Jews. Some 20 survivors walked through the gate that bares the infamous “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work Makes You Free) sign and laid a wreath at the former camp’s Executions Wall, where the inmates, mainly Polish resistance members, were shot to death.Around 60 members of the Knesset, or half of the Israeli legislature, joined the survivors for the observances that included visits to the red brick Auschwitz barracks which house a collection of the victims’ belongings and hair, and a list of the names of some 4.2 million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.In a special ceremony in Birkenau, also called Auschwitz II, they also heard from one of the survivors, Noah Klieger, about the Death March when some 15,000 died after Nazis fleeing the advancing Soviet army in January 1945 forced inmates still able to walk to march west in freezing weather. They remembered Jan. 27, 1945, when the Red Army entered the camp and freed the remaining inmates, mostly children and sick people.Israeli coalition leader, Yariv Levin, speaking on behalf of Knesset lawmakers, said that people in Israel should rely on themselves and aim to build a safe world.“Walking here, on this soil soaked with blood of our brothers and sisters, we must assure our children and future generations that a different world, full of hope and free of fear can be built.” 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Former Arizona Rep.

Comments   Share   Speaking at the European parliament ceremony in Brussels, European Jewish Congress President, Moshe Kantor, rejected free speech arguments over what he called the worldwide spread of anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is “not an opinion _ it’s a crime,” he said.Kantor pointed to the “quenelle,” a gesture invented by the French comedian Dieudonne that some have called an inverted Nazi salute. The comic, who has been convicted more than half a dozen times for inciting racial hatred or anti-Semitism, says it is merely an anti-establishment symbol. The gesture made headlines when soccer star Nicolas Anelka used it to celebrate a goal.“Today we are witnessing the absolute democratization of anti-Semitism,” Kantor said. It is “a symbol invented by a so-called comedian that allows young people out for a drink, soldiers having a laugh and even a footballer scoring a goal, to have their own unique opportunity for Jew hatred.”In Italy, meanwhile, President Giorgio Napolitano condemned as a `’miserable provocation” threats against Rome’s Jewish community in recent days, including the delivery of packages containing pig heads to Rome’s main synagogue.center_img Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Napolitano said Monday during Holocaust Memorial Day commemorations that recent insults made against the Jewish community are `’comparable only to the repugnant material in those packages.”Italian police also detained two men, ages 33 and 47, on suspicion of instigating racial hatred for anti-Semitic graffiti, including denial of the Holocaust, near the main judicial offices in Rome. Authorities say the men belong to different far-right groups. No arrests have been announced for the delivery of the pig head’s.Also Monday, the Holocaust Survivors’ Foundation USA called on Germany’s Allianz to pay aging survivors benefits that their families bought before they died in the Holocaust.“It is shameful that today, Holocaust survivors are not allowed to even bring a lawsuit in a U.S. court to recover these unpaid policies,” they said. Legislation that would allow survivors in the U.S. to sue European insurance companies has lingered in Congress for years.(Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
