Vancouver woman gets 10 years for trying to kill thenhusband

first_imgA Vancouver woman was sentenced Wednesday to more than 10 years in prison for attempting to shoot her then-husband to death while he was lying in bed.In an agreement with prosecutors, Gayle Bethke, 62, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Clark County Superior Court to one count of second-degree attempted murder. In exchange, Deputy Prosecutor Jennifer Nugent dropped a charge of first-degree attempted murder, which carries a sentence of more than 16 years in prison.Bethke apologized Wednesday to her ex-husband, Roger Bethke, and his two sons. She said her actions spiraled out of control during a drinking binge.“I was on a downward spiral, and I felt hopeless,” she said Wednesday.“I’m just glad no one is hurt,” she added.Bethke admitted to being an alcoholic and to feeling suicidal on the night of Sept. 21, 2012, when she attempted to kill her husband at their home in the Burnt Bridge Creek neighborhood. She said she had gone to see a mental health counselor prior to the incident.That night, she said, she and Roger Bethke had dinner together and then walked their four dogs.Later, they got into a disagreement while they were in bed discussing getting a divorce, Nugent said.Roger Bethke heard her go downstairs, return to the bedroom and then rummage for something inside a plastic bag, the prosecutor said.She then approached him, yanked the blanket off, and pointed a pistol at his head, Nugent said. Roger Bethke was able to wrestle the gun away, but she repeatedly threatened to kill him.last_img read more

DNA found in lake bottom offers historical clues regarding impact of an

first_img The researchers note that understanding the full impact of an invasive species on an environment is difficult, involving many factors, one of which is generally a long timescale. In this new effort, the researchers found an environment with few interacting variables and a natural historical record—DNA found in a lake bottom.The environment was the Kerguelen Islands, situated in a remote southern part of the Indian Ocean. The invasive species was a type of rabbit introduced to the islands as a food source in 1874 by a group of scientists—they were there to study the transit of Venus, but they left behind several rabbits that quickly multiplied because there were no predators. Since that time, the rabbits have spread across much of the main island of Grande Terre, wreaking havoc on the delicate ecosystem.To learn more about the impact the rabbits have on the island, the researchers collected samples from the bottom of a lake which contained samples of plant DNA. They found samples dating back several hundred years, and were able to follow the events that had transpired.They deduced that the region had been relatively stable for hundreds of years prior to the arrival of the rabbits. Then, in the early 1940s, when the rabbits made their way to that part of the island, things changed. Prior to their arrival, the dominant plant was Azorella selago—after their arrival, plant diversity plummeted. They also noted that erosion dramatically increased, as well.The team notes that erosion did eventually level off, but the ecosystem was unstable, and remains that way today in spite of efforts to eradicate the rabbits by the French Government. Instead, due to more human traffic in the area, other invasive species have made their way to the islands. Still, the island offers a unique opportunity to study the impact of an invasive species in a near-pristine environment.

DNA from lake sediments reveals long-term ecosystem changes after a biological invasion, Science Advances (2018). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aar4292AbstractWhat are the long-term consequences of invasive species? After invasion, how long do ecosystems require to reach a new equilibrium? Answering these questions requires long-term, high-resolution data that are vanishingly rare. We combined the analysis of environmental DNA extracted from a lake sediment core, coprophilous fungi, and sedimentological analyses to reconstruct 600 years of ecosystem dynamics on a sub-Antarctic island and to identify the impact of invasive rabbits. Plant communities remained stable from AD 1400 until the 1940s, when the DNA of invasive rabbits was detected in sediments. Rabbit detection corresponded to abrupt changes of plant communities, with a continuous decline of a dominant plant species. Furthermore, erosion rate abruptly increased with rabbit abundance. Rabbit impacts were very fast and were stronger than the effects of climate change during the 20th century. Lake sediments can allow an integrated temporal analysis of ecosystems, revealing the impact of invasive species over time and improving our understanding of underlying mechanisms.

The Best Software Tools to Run a Startup

first_img Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. May 20, 2014 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. There’s never been a better time to start your own company, and the explosion of online tools has gone a long way toward reducing startup costs.But they can also be a huge time suck, a deep rabbit hole that gets you lost in maximizing process at the expense of product.We’ve been down a few rabbit holes launching NerdWallet, a media startup focused on finanical tools, to find the right software tools to get the job done. The process is ongoing — we try, discard and try again. And while there are some amazing applications out there, we have also learned that sometimes a trusty spreadsheet can do the job rather than an online tool that over promises and under delivers.When judging what software is right for your startup, think about these questions:1. Does it meet our business needs? Don’t get more than you need. With the profusion of products, it’s easy to pick up a case of “tool-itus.” Keep tools to an absolute minimum to avoid death by a thousand pinpricks.Related: 6 Tools Your Business Should Invest in for 20142. Does it save money and time? We generally think about using software tools in terms of time saved. If we are spending a lot of time working admin on a no-cost tool is that time really worth it’s “free cost?” It’s important to manage expenses, but ultimately, you have to grow the top line — and spending a little cash on a better tool may be worth it in the long run.3. Does it make employees’ jobs easier? Software tools are only as good as an employee’s adherence to using it. If they don’t use, or feel resentful using it, then it’s both hurting productivity and morale.As a media startup, here are the products we’ve tried (some we’ve dropped, others we continue to use) but all have been essential in our learning curve and scaling needs. While these were specific for media, many (if not all) can be used at other types of companies.Publishing tools. When starting out, content providers usually choose among one of the “Big Three” free content-management systems: Drupal, WordPress and Joomla. We chose WordPress, because of its off-the-shelf ease and ubiquitous presence. (The company powers one in every six webpages.)With its dominance, WordPress has far more ways to customize your site with more than 31,000 plug-ins. That’s both good news and bad news: How do you sift through them all for what’s right for your site? It can be tricky. To get a sense of which of the “Big Three” is right for your company, there is a great comparison tool on WebsiteSetup.org.Project and product management. Keeping track of collaboration on various projects and product development becomes essential when you grow from more than a dozen employees. Fortunately, there are a number of project management tools out there.We started with Trello, a project-management platform with a free option (can upgrade to “business class for $500”). It was easier to use when starting from scratch, but as we grew, we started bumping into problems with customizing it to our needs. After the engineering team began using Kanban Tool, the rest of the company began using it as well. We found its flexibility for the disparate areas of our business worth its nominal price: between $5 and $9 per user per month.Related: Most Essential Social Media ToolsCustomer-relationship management. We use Salesforce, which can cost anywhere between $5 and $300 per user per month, to manage and track our customer relationships. To be honest, it was more software than we actually needed. While Salesforce has the flexibility to customize almost every single element of the system, the more options often increases complexity, rather than reducing it. For new users, it can be intimidating, and small startups rarely have the resources for comprehensive training right off the bat. This means that users self-select into those willing to invest to learn vs. those who revert to their original ways (read: manual) we were trying to move away from in the first place. That said, for larger, more complex companies, it may be worth the investment. There are lighter weight and cheaper CRM tools that we could have used, among them Nimble, Streak — a free tool which touts itself as “CRM inside Gmail” — and Relate IQ, which will run you $49 to $99 per user per month and claims to build better “relationship intelligence.”Related: Tools to Keep Remote Employees Motivated and ProductiveOur PR team is experimenting with Nimble (free for personal use and $15 per user per month for businesses), which aggregates contacts from Gmail and social-media accounts like Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Like our migration to project-management tool Kanban Tool, this highlights an effective way to pilot a new tool: Have one team use it and if it proves to be useful implement company wide. Traffic acquisition and on-site analytics. The first step in most online businesses is getting traffic to your site in the first place. When you think about how traffic arrives at places, a common starting point is organic search traffic. SEMRush (a service that runs between $70 to $150 per month) and MOZ (one that will set you back $49 to $99 per month) are tools that both help to see how you rank for key search terms and how to better capture users. SEMrush is a SEO keyword search tool that helps to better capture organic search traffic. MOZ is not only great with SEO but also emulates Google’s domain-authority ranking and gives you a sense of what competitors are doing better than you.Once the traffic arrives, you need to know what it’s actually doing there. Are they leaving because your signup form is too complex? Or abandoning their shopping carts because of expensive shipping charges?Google Analytics is an obvious tool every online startup must master. It’s free, gives you a ton of insight and helps you figure out what is actually happening on your site. There are a host of tools out there that help you to make better sense of people coming to your website. As KISSmetrics (a service costing between $150 and $500 per month) puts it: “Google Analytics tells you what’s happening. KISSmetrics tells you who’s doing it.” Which is a fair statement of what it does. It gives more insight at a personal user level of the behavior of users.Related: 5 Tools For Entrepreneurs to Grow Their Online Presence in No Time Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 6 min readlast_img read more

Syrian rebels warily accept foreign fighters help

first_img“They rush to the rescue of rebel lines that come under pressure and hold them,” one rebel said. “They know what they are doing and are very disciplined. They are like the special forces of Aleppo.”But he added: “The only thing is that they are too radical.” He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals by both Jabhat al-Nusra and the Assad regime.In a statement posted on militant websites Wednesday, Jabhat al-Nusra rejected a proposed cease-fire during the four-day Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, which starts Friday. International envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has been trying to cobble together such a truce, saying the government in Damascus and some rebels have agreed to the idea.But Jabhat al-Nusra called a truce a “filthy game,” saying it has no faith that Assad’s regime would respect one. Some Syrian rebel leaders have also expressed skepticism, since previous cease-fire attempts have gone nowhere.Jabhat al-Nusra is the largest grouping of foreign jihadis in Syria, and the rebels say they number about 300 fighters in Aleppo, as well as branches in neighboring Idlib province, the city of Homs and the capital Damascus. Any direct links to al-Qaida are unclear, although U.S. and Iraqi officials have said they believe members of al-Qaida’s branch in Iraq have crossed the border to join the fight against Assad. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Associated PressALEPPO, Syria (AP) – The presence of foreign Islamic militants battling Syria’s regime is raising concerns over the possible injection of al-Qaida’s influence into the country’s civil war.Syria’s rebels share some of those misgivings. But they also see in the foreign extremists a welcome boost: experienced, disciplined fighters whose battlefield valor against the better-armed troops of President Bashar Assad is legendary. Top Stories There are no reliable figures for the number of foreign fighters in Syria, although available estimates put the number in the hundreds, rather than the thousands.Many al-Nusra fighters wear long tunics and baggy pants in the style of mujahedeen or “holy warriors” in Afghanistan, and nearly all have beards, a hallmark of religious piety. A few smear kohl on their eyes and have long hair, emulating what they believe is a style favored by Islam’s Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century.The fighters keep a low profile. They have turned a government building in Aleppo into their headquarters, but it is barely noticeable since it contains no banners or flags to give it away. Only occasional graffiti announces their presence in the city: “Jabhat al-Nusra is coming.” Rebels who spoke with The Associated Press about the group had no clear idea about its leadership.The fighters shun the media, but information gleaned from Syrians in contact with them paints a picture of militant Muslims motivated by a jihadi ideology not unlike that of al-Qaida. Their members include propagandists, trainers, surgeons and other medical doctors.Many Syrian rebels are themselves pious Muslims who frame the fight against Assad’s regime in a religious context. But some see the jihadis’ brand of Islam as too starkly black-and-white and intolerant, dividing the world between the faithful and the infidels. Their presence, some fear, casts doubts on whether a post-Assad Syria will embrace democratic values or come under the sway of Islamists. The high esteem in which the Jabhat al-Nusra fighters are held has a great deal to do with the unruly behavior and lack of discipline of many rebels.One recent night, al-Nusra fighters brought the bodies of four Syrian rebels who were killed when a fellow rebel they were interrogating over suspicion that he was stealing grabbed an assault rifle and shot them. A fifth rebel was wounded.Later, when comrades of the four dead heard the news they gathered outside the hospital and, enraged, fired their entire bullet magazines into the air. Another group of fighters reacted similarly when struck by grief over the death of a comrade.Residents of Aleppo also complain that some rebels take unfair advantage of their position.Fighters go straight to the front of the line at bakeries to buy bread when residents have to wait hours for their turn. Some demand that wounded comrades be treated ahead of civilians at the field hospital.“I don’t have time to wait in line,” said a 19-year-old army deserter who joined the rebels in Aleppo and gave only his first name, Hani.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Check your body, save your life Jabhat al-Nusra has claimed responsibility for a string of suicide bombings, including several in Damascus. It unleashed an Oct. 3 suicide blast in Aleppo that killed more than 30 people, targeting a square where pro-regime fighters congregated. After each blast, the rebels’ Free Syrian Army umbrella group underlines that it does not approve of suicide bombings as a tactic.“Their presence is reducing the popular support that we desperately need in areas where we operate,” a senior political official of the Free Syrian Army, said in neighboring Turkey. “I appreciate their motives for coming to Syria. We cannot deny Muslims their right to jihad, but we want them to leave.” He spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss concerns over the group.Still, in Aleppo, the image of pious Islamic warriors coming to help in the fight against Assad is an attractive one. Though Jabhat al-Nusra is predominantly made up of foreigners, a few Syrians have joined, mostly ultraconservative Muslims.Syrians can join only if they are backed by two full members who must swear on the Quran to tell the truth about the applicant. The fighters run training programs for their Syrian members as well as others who want to learn fighting skills but don’t want to join the group. A staffer at a field hospital in a rebel-held part of Aleppo, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals for talking about the group, said the al-Nusra fighters “are fine now, because they are fighting alongside the rebels.”An AP team witnessed some of the frictions at the field hospital in mid-October. Several al-Nusra fighters entered, and one of them _ a tall, lanky non-Arab dressed in black with a black headband _ was enraged by the presence of foreign journalists at the facility.“They are all spies who are here to collect information,” he said in English, shaking the automatic rifle that was slung over his shoulder.Another fighter, who appeared to be of North African origin, tried to force a female photographer to leave the hospital after she attempted to photograph the X-ray of a wounded fighter’s head.A Syrian rebel commander confronted the two men.“There is nothing in Islam that permits you to treat guests like this. Furthermore, it is a woman,” he said. The fighters left and the commander offered tea and dates to the photographer and several other journalists.Opposition members also worry that the presence of foreign jihadis in Syria lends credibility to the regime’s repeated assertions that the rebellion is the work of terrorist groups carrying out a “foreign conspiracy.” Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Comments   Share   Nothing typifies the dilemma more than Jabhat al-Nusra, a shadowy group with an al-Qaida-style ideology whose fighters come from Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, the Balkans and elsewhere. Many are veterans of previous wars who came to Syria for what they consider a new “jihad” against Assad.The group has become notorious for numerous suicide bombings during the 19-month-old conflict targeting regime and military facilities. Syria’s rebels have tried to disassociate themselves from the bombings for fear their uprising will be tainted with the al-Qaida brand.But several hundred fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra _ Arabic for “the Support Front” _ have also been a valued addition to rebel ranks in the grueling, three-month battle for control of Aleppo, Syria’s largest city.Their reputation in battle circulates among Aleppo’s rebels like an urban legend. Soon after opposition forces launched their assault on the city in July, government troops almost drove them out of the key district of Salaheddin _ until 40 Jabhat al-Nusra fighters rushed to the front and fended them off, according to a story told by many rebels.The group’s fighters have played a similar role along the multitude of front lines that divide this city of 3 million people, where regime forces and rebels have been at a standstill, fighting street to street but unable to score a decisive victory. Many rebels talk of the al-Nusra fighters’ prowess as snipers.last_img read more

He said that most of the dead were wedding guests and at least two of the wounded were younger than 18 years old. Top Stories Mesa family survives lightning strike to home 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Sponsored Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Perdili’s spokesman, Jaweed Basharat, had earlier said that 10 people were wounded. Conflicting accounts are common in the chaotic aftermath of violent incidents.Baghlan and other provinces of the north have been plagued by insurgent attacks since the U.S.-led invasion in 2001 that toppled the Taliban. However, the war is often used as a cover for criminal activity and personal feuds.The police chief of Dih Salah, Col. Gulistan Qasani, said hostility between the two groups involved in the gunfight had been simmering for many years.“The clash broke out after a relative of a provincial police official was assassinated during the wedding party,” Qasani said.He said some 400 people had gathered at a private house for the wedding of a local mullah’s son.“When we collected the bodies it was difficult to determine who were the shooters and who were not, because I could not find any weapons,” Qasani said.Meanwhile in northern Sari Pul province, a local police commander and seven of his men surrendered to the Taliban in Kohistanat district, according to provincial police chief Gen. Mohammad Asef Jabarkhail.Jabarkhail said the surrender came after Taliban fighters attacked police checkpoints on Sunday.

Hotel workers fear new bill will lead to massive layoffs

first_imgHundreds of hotel workers went on the march on Tuesday in Nicosia to protest a bill before the House that, according to unions, abolishes all provisions of existing employment legislation in the sector and will lead to massive layoffs.Unions say the new bill, to which they had no input, would abolish the obligation of employers to hire a minimum number of people in all hotel specialities, and would give hoteliers the opportunity to outsource more services.The bill, the unions said, repeals all the provisions of existing legislation that obliges hotels to employ a sufficient number of employees in all specialities and regulates their employment terms. It also introduces a new provision which allows the rental or sublease of restaurants and bars of hotels to third parties.The leaders of the SEK and PEO trade unions, who took part in the protest march from the finance ministry to the House, said the bill effectively deregulates the labour market in the sector and jeopardises upcoming discussions on the new collective agreement for the industry.The two unions did not rule out more dynamic measures if the bill was not withdrawn.Protesters gathered at around 11am at the finance ministry holding banners demanding their current collective agreement be honoured, ‘no to outsourcing laws for hotels’ and ‘golden hoteliers throw workers out on the streets’.Hoteliers have seen record levels of visitors over the past three years due to the tourism boom.According to PEO chief Pambis Kyritsis, current collective agreement are not being respected by hoteliers “and there are no industrial relations in a rapidly-growing sector of the economy”.“Then the government comes with a bill, which provides for further deregulation,” Kyritsis said, adding that the bill would entitle hoteliers to sublet sections of their premises. This would mean they did not have to comply with the regulations currently in force, in term of staff rights, or the hoteliers’ obligation to be accountable for what is happening in their hotels. “This will result in increased unregulated work, and will result in even greater problems for hotel guests,” he said.SEK’s general-secretary Andreas Matsas warned: “If policies are promoted that contribute to further deregulation of the labour market and call into question the importance and role of workers, this will affect the collective bargaining process and contribute to the breakdown of industrial peace.”Matsas said that already in the sector, the undeclared work rate is over 20 per cent, and wages were below the hourly average in Cyprus.Earlier this month, the statistical service released figures showing that hourly labour costs were lowest in hotel and catering services at €7.50. The hotel and catering sector was at the bottom of the list, with an average yearly cost of €15,711 per employee.One woman at the protest told CNA she had been working in a hotel for 16 years and was earning only €800 a month. “Can they [hoteliers] live on €800? Let them try it for at least a month.”According to the resolution delivered by unions to the government during Tuesday’s protest, the proposed changes under the new bill are superseded by the current law, which provides that every hotel according to its category is obliged to employ a sufficient number of staff, suitably trained in all specialties to offer quality services. It also includes provisions on the employment of staff.The unions are calling for a dialogue. If this is not forthcoming, they warned that they would react more forcefully. They asked the labour ministry to intervene during their visit to the various government departments on Tuesday.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

address to the country."And the negotiations with the European Union will reach their most difficult stage in the run-up to the next scheduled election" File image of Theresa May AP Her Conservative Partysuffered badly in the election winning only 318 out of 650 seats short of the simple majority mark of 325 She needed to stitch up an alliance with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) a Far Right party from Northern Ireland The six months since have been anything but comfortable for May Her government has lurched from one disaster to another while her Cabinet rank ministers have been courting controversies and living dangerously Here’s a look at all the Cabinet-rank ministers who have dragged the British government through troubled waters: Boris Johnson: Foreign Secretary Johnson has never been known for tact and many were surprised when May made him Britain’s top diplomat Now he stands accused of endangering a British-Iranian woman imprisoned in Iran with his loose talk The husband and employer of Nazarin Zaghari-Ratcliffe — serving a five-year sentence for plotting the "soft toppling" of Iran’s government — say she could face more prison time after Johnson told lawmakers last week that she had been training Iranian journalists before she was arrested last year Husband Richard Ratcliffe and the Thomson Reuters Foundation say Zaghari-Ratcliffe was on vacation visiting family They say Johnson’s statement was seized on by Iranian authorities as evidence she was engaged in propaganda against the regime Johnson was forced to accept that "my remarks could have been clearer" "The UK government has no doubt that she was on holiday in Iran when she was arrested last year and that was the sole purpose of her visit" he told lawmakers in a contrite statement to the House of Commons Priti Patel: The international development secretary Priti Patel quit in November following accusations that she held unauthorised meetings with Israeli politicians including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu It was later revealed she held 12 secret meetings in all and hadn’t told May or her colleagues about them In her resignation letter Patel said her conduct "fell below the high standards that are expected of a secretary of state" When news broke about the trip Patel insisted that "Johnson knew about the visit" Her department was later forced to clarify the statement saying "the foreign secretary did become aware of the visit but not in advance of it" Patel said earlier that her meetings in Israel — arranged by Stuart Polak honorary president of the group Conservative Friends of Israel — stemmed from her "enthusiasm to engage" But critics accused her of breaching ministers’ code of conduct and making a major diplomatic gaffe in a region of high political sensitivity Michael Fallon: Defence Secretary Michael Fallon was also forced to resign saying his past behaviour "may have fallen below the high standards" expected A female journalist had accused him of repeatedly touching her knee at a function in 2002; another said he had given her an unexpected and unwelcome kiss Fallon one of May’s stalwart lieutenants was often deployed to speak for the government in broadcast interviews His resignation was a blow to May —made worse when she upset many Conservative lawmakers by replacing him with the widely mistrusted Gavin Williamson a disciplinarian chief party whip famous for keeping a pet tarantula on his desk "A number of allegations have surfaced about MPs in recent days including some of my previous conduct Many of these have been false but I accept in the past I have fallen below the high standards that we require of the armed forces that I have the honour to represent" Fallon said in his resignation letter to May Damian Green:Green who was the first secretary of state inthe UK Cabinet and waseffectively the deputy prime minister He was forced to step down after an investigation found that he had breached the ministerial code Green 61 stepped down after a parliamentary investigation found he had breached the ministerial code of conduct by making "inaccurate and misleading" statements about what he knew about claims that pornography had been found on a computer in his House of Commons office in 2008 "I apologise that my statements were misleading on this point" he said in his resignation letter In her response May expressed "deep regret" at his departure Green who had been under investigation regarding allegations of inappropriate conduct had previously denied suggestions that he made unwanted advances to a female journalist Kate Maltby in 2015 and viewed pornography on a computer in his Commons office in 2008 An official report by the UK Cabinet Office found that statements he had made about being unaware pornographic material had been found on his computer were "inaccurate and misleading" and as such fell short of the ministerial code With inputs from agencies By: AP | London | Published: November 26 2016 9:23 pm Barry Bennell was sexually abusing some aspiring players linked to Manchester City and later Crewe Alexandra in the 1970s and 80s (Source: Reuters) Top News In an instant Paul Lake’s mind goes back more than three decades to a football field in Manchester and Barry Bennell’s tricks with the ball The youth-team coach flicked the ball between his feet knees shoulder and head impressing the youngsters hoping to break into the game and their parents “He was a person you would completely trust” recalls the 48-year-old Lake who says he was 11 or 12 at the time “He would do keepy-up ball skill sessions in front of all the parents and they would be clapping and cheering him “It was like ‘Wow This guy is a fantastic footballer’ And he was great with the kids He said the right things; he was encouraging; he looked the part; he was fit; he was powerful All of our parents would see how good he was and see how he was with each individual boy” That was the public face of Bennell the man entrusted by parents with turning their children into professionals In private Bennell was sexually abusing some aspiring players linked to Manchester City and later Crewe Alexandra in the 1970s and 80s “He was the pied piper he knew how to manipulate the environment to suit his needs and his desires and his horrible behavior” Lake told The Associated Press “He could gain trust from parents unwittingly under the guise of being this caring coach who could get your son to be a professional footballer” Only now after receiving three separate jail terms in the United States and England from 1995 to 2015 are the full horrors emerging of what Bennell subjected the children in his care to Lake can only now recall one training session with Bennell because he was in a separate coaching group around Manchester City feeder teams But David White and Paul Stewart future teammates in the City first team suffered in private for years before this week waiving their anonymity to tell their stories of abuse at the hands of Bennell “There were muted conversations around and suspicions around Barry Bennell even around that time” Lake said “It was dismissed because there is no way that person because he’s a football man and kids love him would be an abuser of young men because he’s wearing club badges So he’s got to be legitimate “I’m not knocking City or Crewe because no one knew or came forward No one pointed the finger Football wasn’t ready with how to deal with it So many young lives were traumatized carrying burden” Bennell was first convicted in Florida in 1995 after being charged with raping a boy and repeatedly sexually assaulting a player from a youth team he had escorted to the United States Back in England Bennell’s crimes were the subject of a television documentary in 1997 and a year later he was convicted again _ receiving a six-year sentence for 23 offences Then the story stopped with no deeper scrutiny until now of the role of Bennell’s employers and no demands for public inquiries to discover how entrenched pedophile coaches were in football “Looking back at that particular time there was an overriding trust in individuals” Lake said “The likes of Barry Bennell sourced the most vulnerable and they understood how much it meant to that boy to be a professional footballer to make it at the top “They sussed out the families They showered the families with gifts saying the right things” With it Bennell gained their trust and the ability to convince parents to allow their children to stay in his home “Not for one instance was there a thought there was an ulterior motive there was this underhand and vile individual that was preying on your child” said Lake whose wife Jo is assisting David White on his autobiography featuring details of abuse by Bennell “In society you knew these people around but they were almost stereotyped as being as a person with greasy hair and wore a rain coat and were a real loner That’s never the case Barry Bennell was proved he was the complete antithesis of that” Lake whose City career was curtailed by injury went on to be an ambassador for the team Now working for the Premier League as club support manager Lake wants officials to be proactive in the welfare of players “Chairman and CEOs need to be more responsible” said Lake who attended a player care seminar on Friday organized by the Premier Sports Network “It’s too easy to be dismissive and say `That’s somebody else’s responsibility’ The chairman at Crewe is now talking about how upset and how frustrated he is around Barry Bennell “They should have made more efforts to find out because that information was out there Instead there are lives that have been broken disrupted and shaken in a negative way” For all the latest

surprises me that he does not turn this performances in Tests" Ganguly said of Sharma’s unbeaten 171 that helped India set a competitive 310 to defend against Australia at Perth in their first ODI Down Under Rohit Sharma Getty Images "In one day cricket at the top of the order he’s as good as anybody in the world He’s too young to judge at the moment but he’s outstanding He makes the game look easy when he gets going But when he gets out you feel why did he get out He is an amazing player in the shorter format of the game This knock was absolutely brilliant" However the total proved to be insufficient for India as Australia scripted a five-wicket win with centuries from George Bailey and skipper Steve Smith to go 1-0 up "Honestly I thought India would win today after getting 309 but I’m sure they would be very disappointed for not being able to defend such a big total (Defending) 310 is a lot of runs on any wicket in the world" India had another positive in debutant left-arm pacer Barinder Sran who struck early to leave Australia reeling at 21/2 before they turned it around with Smiths’ 149 and Bailey’s 112 Ganguly was happy to see another young pacer perform for India

Verstappen was down on power due to an engine problem during qualifying at the Chinese Grand Prix and finished next to last – an uncharacteristically poor result for one of F1’s most promising young drivers No matter Verstappen made up most of the ground in the opening lap of Sunday’s race – passing a remarkable nine cars – and earned an unlikely spot on the podium with a gutsy third-place finish “That was a very special race” the 19-year-old Dutch driver said afterward a huge grin plastered on his face “When I woke up this morning I never expected to be on the podium” Of course it was entirely possible given how well the talented Verstappen has been driving since making a huge splash at last year’s Spanish Grand Prix which he won in his first start for Red Bull after being promoted from feeder team Toro Rosso Since then Verstappen has had seven podium finishes and established himself as a future star of the sport eclipsing at times his more experienced teammate Daniel Ricciardo His maneuvers on Sunday impressed even three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton who led from start to finish to claim his fifth victory in Shanghai “I quite like him up here next to us – makes me look younger” Hamilton said “Max has obviously done a fantastic job since he’s been in the sport and I think he’s been a real breath of fresh air for everyone” Verstappen got a little lucky Sunday when three drivers who finished ahead of him in qualifying were penalized lifting the Dutchman to 16th on the starting grid Then during a wild opening lap on a slick track he found enough holes to vault all the way up to seventh “Trying to go around the outside in Turn 1 I got another car then inside Turn 2 another car outside Turn 3 because there was space” said Verstappen whose father Jos is the only other Dutchman to secure an F1 podium back in 1994 “Also Turn 6 7 8 always trying to go around the outside or inside And it worked” By the final lap Verstappen’s tires were beginning to wear but he managed to hold off a fast-closing Ricciardo with more nervy driving to secure his spot on the podium Now he’s sitting in third place in the drivers’ standings after two races behind Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel Even though Red Bull is still off the pace of the Mercedes and Ferrari cars Verstappen believes his team could contend for victories again soon Particularly if he continues finding holes the way he did on Sunday “I think at the moment we’re a bit in a lonely competition because in front of us they are too quick and behind us (the other teams) are too slow” he said “We are working really hard and trying to close the gap” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Hardeep S Puri | Published: August 30 2013 3:04 am Related News

states But with the Libyan experience behind it and weighed down by the strategic interests of Russiathe Security Council failed to oblige Russia and China vetoed three draft resolutions in 2011-12 Unilateral military action by NATO or a coalition of the willing did not materialise eithersimply because the West had lost its appetite for military action On one handthere was the Syrian governments influence in Lebanon and its potential to create instability in Turkey and Jordan On the otherthere was the expanding role of al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups in the conflict A view developed in the United States that there was no good side in the Syrian conflict So it was argued that the US should simply let the conflict continue because two bad sides were killing each other Even while supporting the rebels diplomatically and collaborating with regional countries in training and arming the rebelsthe Obama administration refused to supply heavy armsmainly anti-tank and anti-aircraft weaponsthat could have tipped the scale in favour of the rebels and neutralised the heavy weapons used by regime forces The Obama administration also stopped others from supplying heavy weapons to the Syrian rebels Such weaponsit was fearedwould fall into the hands of extremist forceswhich could have adverse long-term implications for Western interests in the region and beyond Under pressure to do something in the face of large-scale civilian casualtiesObama drew a red line on the use of chemical weapons This red line has now come to haunt him In response to its own determination that chemical weapons had been used by the Assad government and the red line crossedObama decided in June to arm the rebels But the arms to be supplied are reported to be low-calibre weaponsof which there is no dearth in the region This decision disappointed the Syrian rebels By thenthe rebels had also started to lose ground to the Syrian army The change in the military situation on the ground made it difficult for the Syrian opposition to participate in the Geneva II conference News broke on August 21 that another chemical weapon attack had taken placeand on a massive scale The Syrian oppositionin its letter to the Security Councilclaimed 1100 deaths Qatarin a separate letterclaimed 1300 deaths No prizes for guessing the Syrian government was blamed In the course of the Syrian conflictthere have been several instances where rebels have stage-managed violent incidents Invariablysuch incidents get massive publicity in the Western and Arab mediapainting the Syrian government in poor light But none of the follow-up investigations on these incidents has been able to pinpointwith any degree of certaintythat the government was responsible It would not be surprising if the August 21 attack also turned out to be one such incident The objective could well be to force the government to stop its offensive as well as to motivate and compel foreign governments to act against the Assad regime Having committed itself to a red line on the use of chemical weaponsthe Obama administration finds itself in a quandary If it takes no actionits credibility will be further undermined The lack of a response will set a new benchmark with respect to the use of chemical weapons But the administration has to factor in how much risk it is willing to take if its military action leads to some sort of retaliation by the Assad regime Clearlyany military action that can credibly weaken Assad will invite a response by a regime with nothing to lose And a limited military strikeof the kind Israel keeps
