Drug mules can dodge machines not human intelligence Police

first_imgNew Delhi: The arrest of the two Afghan nationals with 2 kgs of heroin concealed in their stomach has once again proved that the most common modus operandi in drug smuggling remains ‘Swallowing’.The drug mules (carriers) often swallow heroin and cocaine-filled in tiny balloons with small quality of the drugs. A carrier has to swallow many dozens of such capsules which are later recovered from the faeces after administering laxatives. The balloons may be made by multi-layered condoms, fingers of latex gloves and sometimes more sophisticated hollow pellets. An increasingly popular type of swallowing involves having the drug in the form of liquid-filled balloons or packages. These are impossible to detect unless the airport has high-sensitivity X-Ray equipment, as a liquid mixture of water and the drug will most likely not be detected using a standard X-Ray machine. Also Read – Gurdwara Bangla Sahib bans single use plastic”Though, swallowing the drugs could dodge the scanners at the airports sometimes as the packing is hard enough not to let the vapours out making it hard for the machines to detect it. We have to constantly rely on human intelligence for segregating the suspect from the normal passenger,” said a senior police officer. However, ruptured packets inside the stomach can be fatal and often require treatment as for a drug overdose and may require admission to an intensive care unit.

Salomon Edgar Vaca Arambel, 49, was intercepted by the customs officials at the Delhi International Airport after his arrival from Addis Ababa on April 27. Also, in 2013, an Afgan national Niaz Mohammad also died allegedly due to cocaine capsule burst inside his stomach after he visited Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar to visit a friend. “Source-based intelligence still remains the most effective means to counter drug trafficking especially when the drug is hidden inside the stomach,” said the officer.last_img read more

Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s lawyer would not disclose who is paying the quarterback’s legal bills, but he did tell The Lantern on Thursday that he does not anticipate any further sanctions for his client regarding the cars he has driven during his time at OSU. Larry James, a Columbus attorney who represents Pryor, explained the quarterback’s vehicle history and said his client did not commit any infractions. “In order to have infractions, he would have to receive something of a benefit that other students or the public would not normally receive,” James said. James said Pryor’s mother, Thomasina Pryor, purchased a Hyundai Sonata in 2008 for her son, then a high school senior in Jeanette, Pa. James said the car died sometime during the first year and a half, and was traded in for a Dodge Charger, for which Thomasina also paid. When the Charger began having problems, Pryor traded it in for about $7,800, and purchased a Nissan 350Z for about $11,000 after the trade-in. “The monthly payments are $289 a month,” James said. “That is about a nickel difference between the Charger and the 350Z.” Pryor drove three or four loaner cars during the times the Charger was being serviced, James said. “The idea of getting a loaner when your car is being serviced is pretty standard,” he said. James would not identify who is paying for his client’s legal bills. “I can’t tell you and wouldn’t tell you, and it’s inappropriate to tell you,” James said. “The public does not get to know that.” James said Pryor had his license reinstated since receiving a ticket for running a stop sign Feb. 17. “He has his license as we speak,” James said. “He went down today to show proof of insurance.” James said he doesn’t understand the current media scrutiny. “Particularly for a young student-athlete, I think it’s been awful,” James said. “If you look at allegations about the cars, they have been anything but factual. It has been punitive and I don’t get that.” read more

first_imgHearst will be raising the rate base of Food Network Magazine to 1.25 million. The boost will take effect with the July/August issue, and represents 150,000 more copies than originally planned.  Published in partnership with the Food Network, which is run by the Scripps Networks, the magazine was introduced with two newsstand-only test issues in October 2008 and January 2009, resulting in a 70 percent sell-through of the first test issue and more than 550,000 paid subscriptions through April 2009.This is the third rate base increase post-launch for the bimonthly, essentially tripling the number of copies distributed from its 400,000 debut.

Snapdeal Will Pip Flipkart as Indias Top Online Retailer by March 2016

first_imgSnapdeal co-founder and CEO Kunal Bahl has said that by March 2016, his company will beat the reigning online marketplace leader Flipkart in terms of sales.”The one thing I am very, very clear about right now is that I think we’re going to be No. 1 (in terms of sales) by March 2016. I think we’re going to beat Flipkart by then,” he told The Economic Times in an interview.Bahl said that Snapdeal’s gross merchandise value (GMV) reached $4 billion (about Rs 26,000 crore) in August, up from $1 billion a year ago. GMV refers to total value of goods sold by an online retailer.”It took us two-and-a-half years to reach GMV of $1 billion, a milestone that we reached on July 31 last year. This month we’ve crossed $4 billion. It took us only a year to go from $1 billion to $4 billion. We hit $3 billion about three-odd months back. The acceleration has been very significant,” said Bahl.Snapdeal raised about  $500 million in a fresh round of funding earlier this month from Alibaba Group, Foxconn and SoftBank. The deal also saw the participation by its existing investors Temasek, BlackRock, Myriad and Premji Invest. The participation of Foxconn and Alibaba is expected to significantly help the company, as the investments made by the two companies are considered long-term, compared to private equity and hedge funds “that have shorter redemption windows.”The funding is likely to enable Snapdeal’s ambition of becoming the numero uno player in online marketplace in India by way of acquisitions.In June, Bengaluru-based Flipkart had raised its GMV target to $10-12 billion by March 2016, compared to an earlier estimate of $8 billion. Flipkart had achieved a GMV of $4 billion in the last fiscal year ending March 2015.Snapdeal’s challenge to Flipkart indicates an intensifying rivalry among the players to dominate the fast growing e-commerce sector in the country.last_img read more

Metropolitan Police Department Use of Force Under Review

first_imgThe Metropolitan Police Department is being evaluated to determine its compliance with use of force provisions established in 2001. A meeting between city officials, the MPD, and the review team was held on April 29 to begin discussions.In 1998, a series of reports found the MPD to be the nation’s deadliest police force, which prompted a Memorandum of Agreement between the District of Columbia, MPD, and the Department of Justice. Outside investigators recommended the agreement for early termination in 2008 after finding the MPD had conformed to more than 80 percent of the stipulations.But as headlines around the country continue to revolve around allegations of excessive police force, questions have resurfaced about whether the MPD is abiding by the MOA.“It just seemed to me that enough time had lapsed that we might take a look at best practices and use of force practices,” District of Columbia Auditor Kathy Patterson told the AFRO.  “I tend to make the assumption that we are [in compliance with the agreement], but this is an issue that people care about because of the things that are happening nationally. It seemed to make sense to take a look at it again. ”She hopes to have the process complete by Sept. 1 and hired Michael Bromwich, who served as independent monitor of the MOA, for the review. Bromwich said the MPD was operating under best practices at the time the MOA ended seven years ago, but it is too early in the review process to make any determinations about its continued compliance.“All indicators are that they’ll be extremely cooperative,” he said of the MPD.  “We’re required to produce a public report in a few months. If there are any problems, we’ll point them out. If they’re doing a good job, we’ll point that out. ”Three officer-involved shootings – one in 2011 and two from 2014 – are being reviewed also.Sean Blackmon, a member of DC Ferguson’s core organizing group, calls the interactions between the community and MPD “police terror .”“I describe it as bloody, ” he said.  “I would describe it the same as an occupying army in a colonized society. The cops that killed 18-year-old Raphael Briscoe were let off the hook. We’ve seen it even as recently as Christmas Eve; Gregory Gray was killed by the [MPD]. The more they’re really exposed, they’re going to have to change. ”A large part of Bromwich’s task will be to review several aspects of MPD training- a major component of the MOA. Lt. Sean Conboy said the MPD is “not able to comment on” in an emailed statement to the AFRO.Among other areas, the developing of use of force curriculum, use of force training, and continuation of training in cultural diversity and community policing will be scrutinized. The MOA also requires MPD to produce quarterly public reports detailing use of force statistics, use of force investigations, and citizen complaints about use of force.According to the 2013 MPD annual report, police recruits spend 28 weeks in a police academy to undergo training in the use of firearms, laws of arrest, search and seizure, human relations, and ethics among other areas. While the report was unclear whether professional development is mandatory, it is available to MPD members of all ranks and was completed by 3,500 members.The MPD report acknowledges six incidents of accidental firearm discharges. There were 16 instances of intentional shots fired at citizens, five fatal and seven injuries. Based on the report, there were 34 citizen complaints about excessive force in 2013.But that same year, the Police Complaints Board reported 172 allegations of force, down from 351 complaints in 2009; 353 complaints in 2010; 280 complaints in 2011; and 206 complaints in 2012.“When an officer uses any kind of force, there’s a review process,” Patterson said.  “We’re not just asking whether the department continues to have its policies in its general orders, but to make sure they’re following them.”last_img read more

CCleaner 535 released with new digital signature

first_imgCCleaner 5.35 released with new digital signature by Martin Brinkmann on September 20, 2017 in Security – 26 commentsPiriform, the company behind the highly successful Windows cleaning software CCleaner, released version 5.35 of the application on September 20th, 2017.The new version was signed with a brand new digital signature, the only change of the release.The company’s infrastructure was attacked successfully recently, and a modified signed version of CCleaner was distributed for a time using the official distribution channels.According to information provided by Piriform and Avast, Piriform’s parent company, the malware was contained only in the CCleaner program. The company states that the malware did not spread on its own, for instance to infect other files on the computer system, a computer network the device was connected to at the time, or even on the Internet.The company released a malware-free version of CCleaner, version 5.34 on September 12th, 2017. The new version overwrites the old if installed on the system, which in turn would eliminate the malware by doing so according to the company.Cautious users may want to restore a backup of the system that was created prior to the update of the software to version 5.34 on the system.The free version of CCleaner does not support automatic updates which means that users who run the free version of the software need to download the latest version manually to update the build.The new CCleaner 5.35 version comes with a new digital signature. This is different from version 5.34 which was shipped with the old digital signature which the compromised version of CCleaner did use as well.You can verify that a new digital signature is used in the following way:Open the folder that the CCleaner executable files are located in.Right-click on ccleaner.exe or ccleaner64.exe, and select properties from the context menu.Switch to the digital signatures tab.You should see September 20th, 2017 as the timestamp, and Piriform Ltd as the signer.CCleaner users may download the portable version or the installer of CCleaner 5.35 from Piriform’s Build page.Please note that the connection comes up as “not secure” right now.

Krita 413 a FOSS graphic editor for digital painting and animation is

first_imgYesterday, Krita 4.1.3 was released with several improvements in the Instant Preview mode, bezier curve tools, and Comics Project manager, along with many bug fixes. Krita is a free and open source raster graphics editor, designed mainly for digital painting and animation purposes. Round corners for the rectangle tool A new feature has been added for round corners for the rectangle tool. Whether you’re working on a pixel or a vector layer, you can set round corners for the resulting shape. In the previous versions, you could, of course, already round vector rectangles by editing the shape, but this tool makes it easier. New welcome screen This version comes with a new welcome screen, which provides some handy links, a list of recently used files, a link to create or open a file, and a hint that you can also drag and drop images in the empty window to open them. Improved Instant Preview mode Instant Preview works by computing a scaled-down version of the image and displaying that. In the previous versions, with some brushes, this mode would cause a little delay at the end of a stroke, or some flickering on the canvas. This is fixed in Krate 4.1.3 to give users a  smoother painting experience. Improved working with selections Krita’s selections can be referred to as vectors or as a pixel mask. If you’re working on a vector selection, using the figure tools such as rectangle or ellipse will now add a vector to the selection, instead of rasterizing the vector selection. Improved bezier curve tools The bezier curve tools now comes with an auto-smoothing option. If you select auto-smoothing, the created curve will be not a polygon, but a smooth curve with the type of all the points set to “smooth”. Comics Project manager The Comics Project manager, a Python plugin has seen a ton of improvements, especially when it comes to generating standard-compliant epub and acbf files. Some these improvements are: Improved navigation to generated epubs. Ensure generated EPUBs pass EPUB check validation. Several issues with the EPUB metadata export is fixed. Make the generated EPUB 3 files pre-paginated. This will allow comics to be rendered as part of a spread which should have a nice result. ComicBookInfo and ComicRack generators are updated Bug fixes This version comes with various bug fixes, some of which are listed here: A shortcut for the threshold filter is added Restore the shortcut for the invert filters. Hardcoded brush size limit for the Quick Brush is removed Fix rotation direction when the transformed piece is mirrored Stamp brush preview now scales correctly Automatically avoid conflicts between color labels and system colors The modified() getter to the Document class is added The resetCache() Python API to FileLayer is added Read the full announcement on Krita’s official website.

What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke The Arizona Cardinals may have lost running back Ryan Williams for the year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t rookies on the roster who fans should be excited about this season. In fact, Ken Whisnhunt is pretty enthusiastic about the team’s entire draft class and what he’s seen from them.“I’ve been very pleased with our rookie draft class,” Whisenhunt told reporters in Flagstaff Tuesday. “It was unfortunate to see Ryan get injured last week because I think he was going to be one of the real standouts from this class. I’ve been very excited that everyone of the guys we’ve drafted looks to me like they’ve got a chance to be a very good guy in this league. They’ve all, at one point or another, made plays during this camp. Actually, they’ve all done pretty well in the preseason games which is unusual. Usually your draft picks, there are a couple that really struggle and that hasn’t been the case.” While Williams was the one making headlines for how well he was running at camp, names like Patrick Peterson, DeMarco Sampson, Rob Housler and Sam Acho have all impressed as well.If camp and the preseason are any indication, the team will likely rely on many of their rookies to contribute this year. Peterson is expected to be one of the team’s starting cornerbacks and a key part of their return game while Acho has already taken reps at linebacker with the first team in place of Joey Porter. While guys like Sampson, Housler and Quan Sturdivant likely won’t start, they’re all expected to have an impact in various roles.

However, we are super thankful and feel blessed by the outpouring of support from our community,” Klassen said in a message Friday.“We are excited to be able to move forward and get back to doing what we love to do: serving the fitness needs of Moose Jaw and area.”Klassen said she moved into the mixed-use building nearly one year ago.
