Iran says it has arrested 17 CIA spies some sentenced to death

first_imgDubai: Iran said Monday it has arrested 17 Iranian nationals allegedly recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency to spy on the country’s nuclear and military sites, and that some of them have already been sentenced to death. The arrests took place over the past months, and those taken into custody worked on “sensitive sites” in the country’s military and nuclear facilities, an Iranian intelligence official told a press conference in Tehran. He did not elaborate, say how many of them were sentenced to death or when the sentences were handed down. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USPresident Donald Trump tweeted that the claim had “zero truth,” calling Iran a “total mess”. The announcement comes as Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers is unraveling and tensions have spiked in the Persian Gulf region. The crisis stems from Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the agreement last year and intensify sanctions on the country. The Iranian official did not give his name but was identified as the director of the counterespionage department of Iran’s Intelligence Ministry. It’s rare in Iran for intelligence officials to appear before media, or for any official to give a press conference without identifying himself. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe official claimed that none of the 17, who allegedly had “sophisticated training,” had succeeded in their sabotage missions. Their spying missions included collecting information at the facilities where they worked, carrying out technical and intelligence activities, and transferring and installing monitoring devices, he said. The official further claimed the CIA had promised U.S. visas or jobs in America and that some of the agents had turned and were now working with his department “against the US.” He also handed out a CD with a video recording of an alleged foreign female spy working for the CIA. The disc also included names of several U.S. Embassy staff in Turkey, India, Zimbabwe and Austria who Iran claims were in touch with the recruited Iranian spies. Trump rejected the allegations. “The Report of Iran capturing CIA spies is totally false. Zero truth. Just more lies and propaganda (like their shot down drone) put out by a Religious Regime that is Badly Failing and has no idea what to do. Their Economy is dead, and will get much worse. Iran is a total mess!” he tweeted. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a former CIA director, declined on Monday to address specifics of the arrests. But he added that “the Iranian regime has a long history of lying.” Pompeo pointed to differences between the US and Iranian accounts of the location of an unmanned US drone the Iranians shot down in June, among other incidents. “I think everyone should take with a grain of salt everything that the Islamic Republic of Iran asserts today,” he said. “They have 40 years of history of them lying, so we should all be cautious reporting things that the Iranian leadership tells us.” Pompeo, speaking to The Associated Press over the phone, said that the world is “watching the Iranian regime understand that they’ve got a real challenge, that America and the world understands that they are a rogue regime conducting terror campaigns.”last_img read more

Abdellatif Laabi Exhibits Paintings and Poetry in Marrakech

Rabat – The exhibit combines Laabi’s paintings and poetry as a marriage of words and images.Laabi joins the “literati” ideal of poetry and the ecstasy of the image to create masterpieces. Laabi’s poetry gives a voice to his paintings and the paintings display Laabi’s poetic words. Most of Laabi’s poems inspire his painting.Abdellatif Laabi is a prize-winning Moroccan poet who received the prestigious French Goncourt Prize for poetry in 2009 and the French Academy’s Grand prix de la Francophonie in 2011. On painting, Laabi has said, “I observed many painters, saw them during their work, I sat on contemplating the way they worked, and sometimes wrote about their works; the art of painting became familiar and intimate to me, and in a very short time, I began to paint whenever I could, daily and for several hours.” On what inspires him, Laabi writes in “My Story with Painting” that “Mankind is always reborn as one gradually discovers his or her different selves and multifaceted aspects through the unexpected encounters, the emotions, the mutations we experience, and the danger we face.”Laabi, a major figure in Moroccan culture, is a prolific artist, poet, novelist, playwright, and translator. read more

A giant Mickey Mouse balloon was rescued after crashing in the sea

first_img NOT a paraglider. Source: RNLIFar from being annoyed at being called out to save a balloon on a Sunday evening, Stephen Wynne of Dun Laoghaire RNLI is happy that the concerns were genuine: THERE WAS A a raft of 999 calls yesterday evening after an object was spotted crashing into the sea off Bray Co. Wicklow, thankfully though the incident was far less serious than initially feared.That’s because, following a brief search, all the volunteers from RNLI lifeboat crew from Dun Laoghaire rescued was giant Mickey Mouse balloon.Several callers to the Irish Coast Guard (ICG) in Dublin reported an object crashing into the water about a 1 km off the Bray seafront.The RNLI say that paragliding has been popular in the area recently and there were fears that the object might have been a paraglider in difficulty.Fortunately though, the seven person lifeboat crew quickly recovered the famous rodent which they believe crashed after being carried by the light breeze and flood tide about 2 km north towards the cliffs at Shanganagh. We’re happy that this was a call made with good intent and calling 999 and asking for coast rescue is always the best course of action. And in this case, we were particularly happy to assist Mickey Mouse, one of the all-time favourite cartoon characters.Read: Couple in their 50s rescued from rhododendron forest in Tipperary >Read: Two divers die in separate incidents in Cork and Donegal >last_img read more

Leicesters Champions League dream ended by Atletico

first_img Follow us: the42.ie Updated at 22.00JAMIE VARDY SCORED in vain as Leicester City’s Champions League fairytale came to a valiant end following a 1-1 quarter-final draw at home to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.Seeking to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit, Leicester fell further behind to Saul Niguez’s first-half header, before Vardy’s 61st-minute strike gave them hope.But despite heavy Leicester pressure and furious noise inside the King Power Stadium, Atletico completed a 2-1 aggregate win to reach the semi-finals for the third time in four seasons.Leicester had hoped to become the competition’s first debutant semi-finalists since Villarreal in 2006, but they were unable to engineer a repeat of their last-16 triumph against Sevilla.Their exit brings to an end a golden adventure sparked by last season’s stunning Premier League title win.Having successfully staved off the threat of relegation under new manager Craig Shakespeare, the rest of their season now holds nothing more than a return to pre-title normality.It is the third time Atletico have eliminated Leicester from continental competition, after previous triumphs in the 1961-62 European Cup Winners’ Cup and the 1997-98 UEFA Cup.Beaten by city foes Real Madrid in the 2014 and 2016 finals, Diego Simeone’s side can continue to dream that this will be the year they finally end their wait for European football’s biggest prize.Leicester’s desire to make the most of the occasion was clear from the start, pyrotechnic bursts greeting the players as they emerged while fans twirled blue, white and gold foil flags distributed by the club.But whereas Leicester had quickly taken charge of their second-leg match against Sevilla in the previous round, Atletico made it clear they would not be pushed around like their compatriots.- Shakespeare switch -They defended with their customary tenacity, while two dangerous crosses from Yannick Carrasco — preferred up front to the fit-again Kevin Gameiro — demonstrated their threat on the counter.It was just as Leicester were threatening to make inroads, Shinji Okazaki stabbing wide at the near post from Vardy’s cross, that the visitors tightened their grip on the tie.Filipe Luis was given space to shape a cross into the box from the left and the unmarked Saul expertly guided a header past Kasper Schmeichel’s outstretched right hand and into the bottom-left corner.Riyad Mahrez volleyed straight at Jan Oblak at the other end after Marc Albrighton’s cross was headed away, but it was the voices of the away fans that rang loudest as the half-time whistle sounded.The second half brought with it drastic changes for the hosts, with Ben Chilwell and Leonardo Ulloa replacing Yohan Benalouane and Okazaki as Shakespeare switched to a bold 3-4-3 system.Antoine Griezmann gave them a scare with an early dart into the box, but Atletico soon found themselves on the back foot.After Chilwell had thrashed over, Leicester levelled, Vardy slamming in from inside the six-yard box after Chilwell’s shot had been charged down by Stefan Savic.The final half-hour was one-way traffic, but Atletico repelled everything Leicester threw at them.Ulloa and Vardy both had shots blocked, while Vardy’s flick was caught by Oblak and Mahrez whipped a free-kick narrowly over the bar.Leicester captain Wes Morgan, passed fit to play after six games out with a back problem, succumbed to injury late on, symbolically hobbling off as Leicester’s European dream faded away.The42 is on Instagram!

Inside Nick Caves Candid Open Dialogue At Conversations With in NYC

first_img Recap: Conversations With Nick Cave In NYC inside-nick-caves-candid-open-dialogue-conversations-nyc The punk rock poet navigates passionate, heartfelt and absurd fan questions on his personal exploration of the unknown in intimate Q&A eventNate HertweckGRAMMYs May 4, 2018 – 3:29 pm “I have absolutely no idea what I’m really doing here,” admits a nervous Nick Cave, walking to the front of the stage after opening his Conversations With Nick Cave event at New York City’s Symphony Space with a moving solo piano rendition of “Sad Waters.” The Australian-born cult-rock hero has decided it’s time to have a dialog, of some sort, with his audience. “There was something about doing this that felt like it fit into a larger idea that I want to pursue in some kind of way … I don’t even know what the idea is yet.”Even at what is presumed to be his most uncomfortable, Cave is still impossibly cool, dressed sharp in a black well-tailored suit, his black hair slicked back, his shoes shined. Later this year, Cave and his longtime band the Bad Seeds will play Brooklyn, N.Y.’s Barclays Center to thousands of screaming fans, but on this night the audience is comprised of a mere few hundred of his most devout fans, many of whom are eager to take advantage of the evening’s loose question and answer format. The questions begin flying at Cave immediately.Perhaps Cave’s nerves were put at ease when he saw most of his fans doing the asking were many times more petrified than him at the reality of speaking with their idol.”I adore you,” one fan began with a stammer. “Me too,” replied Cave, igniting the room into laughter. The questions pour in, covering a topical potpourri from humor to death, his feelings on cell phones at shows to performing in Israel, and working many projects from novels to film scoring. Inside Nick Cave’s Candid Open Dialogue At Conversations With… in NYC Email News center_img “Lyric writing is my main interest,” says Cave before he decides a question posed about the gradual slowing of his performance tempos of “Mercy Seat” over the years is best answered with a “really slow” performance of the song itself. He heads back to the comforts of the piano and plays the song, one of his most well-known, with a thoughtful devotion to each word, possibly as a byproduct of the unique format of the night where every syllable seemed on the table for discussion.Neither the crowd nor Cave shied away from talking about the tragic loss of Cave’s son Arthur. Fans shared their similar stories of loss, lauding Cave for helping them cope through his music and his 2016 film documenting his creative and healing processes, One More Time With Feeling, which was nominated for Best Music Film at the 60th GRAMMY Awards.Cave cites a poem by Philip Larkin called “The Mower” as being particularly helpful in his time of grief. “We must be careful of eachother/ We must be kind while there is time,” were the poem’s final lines he repeated in his mind like a mantra of healing.Musically, Cave took requests and plowed through a wide range of his songs on the piano in spurts of two or three throughout the night, including gems such as “Stranger Than Kindness,” which featured music by Blixa Bargeld and lyrics by Anita Lane; “Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry,” at a tempo and volume more suitable for New York’s Upper West Side; and his classic “Into My Arms,” at the request of a couple celebrating their anniversary.There was no shortage of questions at the ready whenever Cave took a break from the piano. Because of — or perhaps despite — the audience’s eclectic questions, he covered a lot of ground: his connection to the songs as a narrator, saying “Certainly over the last three to four records, I’m writing about myself;” his thoughts on the 12 steps and recovery, saying “I’m very familiar with it, unfortunately”; and his painstaking creative process, describing how you must “prepare yourself for the small miracle of songwriting.”Cave opened up about some of his chief collaborators, including Bargeld and Warren Ellis, and revealed his predilection for collaborating with women. He recounted recent sessions with Marianne Faithful, his friendship with Kylie Minogue and his respect for PJ Harvey (whom he calls by her given name, “Polly”) as evidence of how his voice and aesthetic work well musically with female artists. Later, he’d play “Henry Lee,” a duet featuring Harvey from his groundbreaking 1996 album Murder Ballads, and her voice seemed to sneak into fans’ minds at all the right parts.At 60 years old, Cave admitted he listens to less and less new music these days, but said there are always staples for him such as Neil Young, Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Van Morrison. He also admitted he was late to the party on appreciating some of his British ’80s alt-rock contemporaries like the Cure and the Smiths, and told inspiring yet chilling stories of working with Johnny Cash and Rick Rubin. Perhaps the most promising news of the night was that Grinderman, Cave’s daring psych-blues side-project with Ellis and other Bad Seeds is “waiting in the wings.”Throughout the night Cave seemed present, if not self-aware, as if it were his intention in hosting an open discussion to be stumped, and have a breakthrough. He gave a particularly articulate answer to his thoughts on chaos versus order, finding the perfect place in his life and work for both, and when confronted with the question of religion, he glanced over his right shoulder back at the piano at which he just performed “God Is In The House.””It feels unfair that I am taking aim at something that has a lot of value to someone,” Cave thinks out loud in what feels like a real-time realization. “Truth is not the ultimate ideal, meaning is the ultimate ideal.”Not all of the questions or answers were quite so heavy or philosophical. The audience had the chance to find out what kind of sandwich Cave prefers (“nothing with meat in it”), why he likes meditation (his wife, Susie, saw an immediate change), that his son Earl is becoming an acting star (complete with his own superfans who wait in hotel lobbies to meet him), and whether or not he should bring back his mustache (a show of hands in the room revealed the jury is still out). But eventually the so-called “Humans of Nick Cave” would go a little too far out in left field.”There’s so many problems with that question, I’ll play a song for you,” Cave said, sidestepping one particularly sticky inquiry, and the crown chuckled and cheered.Cave played “Mermaids,” honored a request for “Love Letter” and dove back into his middle years with the Bad Seeds for “The Ship Song,” “And No More Shall We Part” and “Far From Me.” Fittingly, he closed the evening with “Skeleton Tree,” the title track from his latest album and a symbol for the tragic, regenerative and transformative time in this aging punk’s creative life.If his Conversations With … concept yields anything for Cave, it’s an escape back to reality of how adored, enjoyed and respected his work is, and his fans hope that through this dialog he finds exactly what he’s looking for.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

Iconic Rondy race run on 3 mile slush loop

Photo/Zachariah Hughes, APMOrganizers were forced to reduce the 25-mile course used in the Fur Rendezvous Open World Championship to just a three-mile loop from 4th Avenue to Mulcahy Stadium and back.The race is structured in heats run three times over the course of three days. Organizers re-named the shortened sprint the Fur Rendezvous Race Invitational, and dropped the purse from $75,000 to $25,000.Michael Tetzner of Germany took first place, finishing with a total time of 27 minutes and 39 seconds, and 11 dogs from an original team of 12. Ricky Taylor of Fairbanks took second, and Mari Hoe-Raitto of Salcha placed third.J.P. Norris of Willow first ran the iconic Rondy sprint in 1970, and said that for the most part the race has stayed true to its roots, even as dogs and equipment have evolved. This year, however, Norris said the race bore little resemblance to its usual form.“Not having the in between part, which is the real race, it’s totally different,” he said in the race chute after awards were given out.20 mushers finished this year’s Invitational.The 2015 sprint races were canceled because of weather.Saturday March 5th is the Ceremonial Start of the 44th Iditarod in Downtown Anchorage.

Killing of 10 Denali wolves sparks debate over increasing protections for the

first_imgDenali wolf (Photo courtesy of National Park service)The killing of ten wolves by a single hunter north of the Denali Highway, has raised new calls for protection of the animals in the Denali National Park region. Photos of an unidentified hunter with an AR-style rifle and a snow machine, surrounded by ten wolf carcasses have circulated online.Listen nowState Division of Wildlife Conservation Director Bruce Dale says the state was alerted to the February kill, which occurred on state land 70 miles east of the park, where the wolf hunting bag limit is ten.”The harvest was reported and the hides were checked in,” Dale said. “All laws were complied with as far as the troopers were concerned.”Biologist and wildlife advocate Rick Steiner says the mass killing of wolves and other predators has no place in modern Alaska.“I think the majority of Alaskans will find this sort of thing reprehensible,” Steiner said. “But, at the very least, it shouldn’t be permitted anywhere near Denali National Park.”Some online comments applaud the wolf kill as a benefit to moose and caribou, and the state’s Dale defends the high bag limit for wolves, citing the species resiliency.”A pack of six can double in size with a single litter,” Dale said.Dale says kills by other wolves or people disrupt packs, but also result in dispersal that leads to formation of new family groups. The ten-wolf kill occurred far from an area along Denali’s northeastern boundary, recently closed to wolf harvest due to an above average take this season.last_img read more

GSIs appbased landslidewarning begins functioning in 3 Bengal villages

first_imgKolkata: From now on, whatsapp messages and sirens on mobile phone apps will alert inhabitants of three most landslide-prone villages of the country, at the slightest signals of landslides. The Geological Survey of India (GSI) has recently developed a Landslide Early Warning System (L-EWS) for the people of Giddapahar, Paglajhora and 14th Mile villages in Kurseong block of Darjeeling District in association with the district administration of West Bengal government, GSI Director Ashish Nath said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life The L-EWS is connected to mobile apps for fast dissemination of the alert to the poeple. The system installed by the GSI in select villages, mostly in Kurseong block, has already started working, the director said. “After the immense loss of life and property in these three villages since 2003 mainly because of landslides, we decided to install the system here first,” he said. Studying the Kurseong area utilising the modern InSAR technology by placing five corner reflectors and rainfall threshold analysis for landslide initiation resulted in the development of the people-centric L-EWS, he said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed Earlier, in case of landslides triggered by rainfall, the GSI used to alert the administration and then it used to be passed on to the local population. “But we felt there must be a change and we should alert the possible victims as soon as there is a trigger. We believe, this will help us in saving more lives,” he said. Eighteen such zones have been marked as extremely vulnerable to landslides and the three Darjeeling villages, where the warning system has been installed were on top of the chart, he stated. Elaborating about the system, he said that it is ideal for warning landslides as spatio-temporal forecasting is extremely difficult, particularly from a remote area. The prediction of the occurrences of landslides both in space and time does not happen because most of the key elements like risk knowledge, monitoring, analysis, warning generation, dissemination and communication of warning and preparedness for timely response do not work in sync, Nath said. “The difficulties are coupled with the variability in the intensity of trigger thus making forecasting quite difficult for the purpose of alerting the community at risk. So the need of putting community-based landslide warning system was felt,” he said. Incidentally, in 2016, the Landslide Studies Division of Geohazards Research and Management (GHRM) Centre, GSI, Kolkata had studied this landslide zone in order to develop an early warning system. In fact, before the deployment of the system, a few rounds of community landslide awareness programme, including mock-drills, were also conducted, Nath said. A billboard showing details of landslide warning has been also erected in two places one at Giddapahar and another at Paglajhora to spread awareness among the people.last_img read more

Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories Comments   Share   As the Cardinals rumor mill churns out more Kolb-to-Cardinals stories, one analyst said that another Cardinals-linked quarterback still has “the fire to play as a starter”.That quarterback is Marc Bulger.Bulger spent last season on the bench in Baltimore, a possible concern for a team who is need of a full-time starter. Should Bulger be content to finish out his NFL career as a backup quarterback, he’ll surely find a team willing to pay him for a “just in case” situation. But according to NBC Sports, Sports Xchange’s Len Pasquarelli said Bulger might not have been content as he seemed on the bench last season.“Last year, when he didn’t get off the bench it wasn’t like he got completely cozy with being the No. 2 guy,” said Pasquarelli’s source. “The situation, though, will have to be the right one.” If Pasquarelli’s source — his and Bulger’s fathers were high school friends — turns out to be correct, Arizona could be a good fit. Bulger would be practically guaranteed to start and would have a few sets of good hands on the receiving end of the ball, including Larry Fitzgerald.Bulger coming to Arizona could be a good option for the Cardinals as well, as Bulger would likely be a cheaper option than the Kevin Kolb.
