Shah is a political newcomer who has overcome childhood poverty, a teenage forced marriage and the imprisonment of her mother for killing an abusive partner.Shah had urged voters to reject Galloway because “we do not need a one-man Messiah to tell us how to come and fix up Bradford.”___6:15 a.m. (0515 GMT, 1:15 a.m. EDT)Prime Minister David Cameron has easily won his Witney seat in southern England, and stopped just short for declaring overall election victory for his Conservatives.He told voters “this is clearly a very strong night for the Conservative Party.”Results seem to support an exit poll’s prediction the Tories will be the biggest seat in the House of Commons and may even win a majority of seats.A Conservative-led government would face a divided Britain, with the pro-independence Scottish National Party holding almost all the seats north of the border. Cameron has vowed to counter the rise of Scottish nationalism with more powers for Scotland and Wales within the United Kingdom.He says “I want my party, and I hope a government that I would like to lead, to reclaim a mantle that we should never have lost — the mantle of one nation, one United Kingdom.” ___9:10 p.m. (2010 GMT; 4:20 p.m. EDT)U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has congratulated U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and his party for defying the polls and winning an outright majority in the elections.Speaking Paris Friday, Kerry said he looked forward to continuing to work with Cameron and Secretary of State Philip Hammond and underlined the special relationship between the U.S. and Great Britain.___6:20 p.m. (1720 GMT; 1:20 p.m. EDT)David Miliband, Britain’s former foreign secretary and brother of defeated Labour leader Ed, has expressed sympathy for his Labour colleagues in Britain’s election.Some were speculating that the elder Miliband brother, who lost to Ed in a Labour leadership contest in 2010, could return to British politics after the disastrous results for the party in Thursday’s general election.He did not make any suggestion to that effect Friday, but tweeted that his heart “goes out to great colleagues who lost seats” and “of course to Ed,” who won his own parliament seat but resigned as leader of Labour earlier in the day.David Miliband resigned from Parliament in 2013 and moved to New York to head a humanitarian aid charity.

Many of their most senior and experienced politicians lost their seats.___11:40 a.m. (1040 GMT; 6:40 a.m. EDT)Nigel Farage has resigned as leader of the populist U.K. Independence Party after failed to win a seat in the U.K. parliamentary election.Farage, who had earlier promised to resign if he lost, told activists “I’m a man of my word.”But he raised the prospect he would consider running again in the future.___11:30 a.m. (1030 GMT; 6:30 a.m. EDT)British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives have secured enough seats to form a majority government.Results from Thursday’s election show that the Conservatives won at least 324 of the House of Commons’ 650 seats, enough to form a slim majority government.The Conservatives are ahead of their main rival, the Labour Party, which lost dozens of seats to the separatist Scottish National Party. LONDON (AP) — 10:17 p.m. (2107 GMT; 5:07 EDT)U.S. President Barack Obama has congratulated U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron on his victory in the general elections.A statement issued by the White House on Friday, says Obama said he “looks forward to building on their already close relationship.”The statement added that the “two leaders look forward to meeting with each other and their colleagues at the G-7 summit this June in Germany.” That puts them clearly ahead of Labour, their main rival, which won 232 seats. The Scottish National Party had 56, while the Liberal Democrats came in at just eight.Cameron spoke earlier Friday outside the prime minister’s office at 10 Downing Street, promising to govern as the party of “one nation, one United Kingdom.”The Conservatives’ clear win brought the election to a faster-than-expected conclusion.___3:10 p.m. (1410 GMT; 10:10 a.m. EDT)All of Britain’s party leaders — both victors and losers — have lined up together in central London to mark the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day.Prime Minister David Cameron, who hours earlier declared his Conservatives were returning to power after winning a majority in the election, stood side by side with his rivals in front of London’s Cenotaph war monument.All leaders stood solemnly holding wreaths of red poppies and observed a moment’s silence in honor of the fallen in World War II.___1:15 p.m. (1215 GMT; 8:15 a.m. EDT)Prime Minister David Cameron says he will form a majority Conservative government after securing a majority in the Britain’s general election.Cameron signaled a conciliatory tone after securing a majority, congratulating former coalition partner, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, and opposition leader Ed Miliband. He promised to govern as the party of “One nation, One United Kingdom.” The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and his wife Marina Wheeler leave a polling station in Islington, north London, after voting the in the General Election, Thursday May 7, 2015.

The result left the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats with just one seat each in Scotland.___6:25 a.m. (0525 GMT, 1:25 a.m. EDT)George Galloway, one of Britain’s most colorful and controversial figures, has lost his Bradford West seat to the Labour Party.Galloway, an outspoken critic of Israel and the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, won the seat from Labour in a 2012 special election. But some locals accused the left-wing firebrand — who once saluted Saddam Hussein and has appeared on a reality-TV show pretending to be a cat — of spending little time in Bradford, which has a large Muslim population.

They want us to go forward with the sensible, moderate policies that have led to a sustained economic recovery.”Johnson will do both jobs until voters choose a new London mayor in 2016.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The win makes Cameron the first Conservative prime minister to win a second term since Margaret Thatcher.Cameron stopped just short of declaring overall victory earlier Friday, saying he hoped to govern “one nation, one United Kingdom” if he was fortunate enough to continue as prime minister.___10:40 a.m. (0940 GMT; 5:40 a.m. EDT)The United Kingdom Independence Party leader, Nigel Farage, has lost his bid to win a seat in Parliament and could resign despite his right-wing party’s surge to third in the popular vote nationwide.Farage finished second to Conservative Party candidate Craig Mackinlay, a former UKIP activist, in the South Thanet constituency east of London as results were announced Friday.Before the result, Farage had pledged to quit as UKIP leader if he failed to win the seat. He decried the British electoral system’s use of winner-takes-all constituencies. UKIP received nearly 3.8 million votes, but finished second or third in dozens of districts.Farage said before the result: “The system is bust. You’ve got a first-past-the-post system where we clearly become the third party in Britain but get hardly any seats.”__9:25 a.m. (0825 GMT; 4:25 a.m. EDT) He said that “any personal disappointment I have at this result is as nothing as compared to the sense of sorrow I have at the result Labour has achieved … and the sense of concern I have about the future.”Balls said Britain faces “five years where questions will arise about the future of our union, about whether we can stay as a member of the European Union and fight for jobs and investment, whether we can make sure we secure our National Health Service at a time when public spending is cut.”___7:55 a.m. (0655 GMT, 2:55 a.m. EDT)All night, famous political faces and household names in Britain had to stand on stages at vote counting centers to hear they had lost their seats in Parliament.Douglas Alexander, who directed the opposition Labour’s campaign and would have been Britain’s foreign secretary if they had won, was defeated by a 20-year-old student from the Scottish National Party.The Liberal Democrats suffered the worst, as almost their entire top team — many of them government ministers — was felled.

Rohingya crisis highlights toothless nature of ASEAN

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Myanmar is particularly unlikely to respond to any ASEAN pressure at the moment because it is focused on November elections, said Bridget Welsh, a senior research associate at the Center for East Asia Democratic Studies of National Taiwan University.“Right now, the politics of Myanmar are domestic, not international,” she said. “They’re in a holding pattern until elections happen.”ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights, the group chaired by Santiago, the Malaysian lawmaker, has demanded that ASEAN abandon its non-interference policy, and last week released a statement saying Myanmar’s government must be held accountable for the persecution of the Rohingya.Santiago believes that Myanmar would be more responsive to pressure from China, the U.S. and other major investors in the country regarding its policies toward the Rohingya.“It appears that so far, ASEAN is unable to respond to a humanitarian crisis involving its own people,” he said. “But to be fair, let’s see what happens over the next two or three days. My only fear is that before a decision can be made, more people will die.”___Associated Press writers Jocelyn Gecker in Bangkok and Eileen Ng in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, contributed to this report. Sponsored Stories Top Stories UNHCR, the U.N. refugee agency, estimated Tuesday that nearly 4,000 people remain stranded at sea with dwindling supplies.Thailand and Malaysia have stressed that while they recognize the plight of the refugees, they cannot absorb thousands of them for fear that they would encourage more to flood in.Malaysia, the current chair of ASEAN, has been criticized for turning away two boats packed with hungry people. The nation of about 30 million already has 150,000 asylum-seekers and refugees, including 45,000 Rohingya, most of whom barely scrape by because they have no legal status and cannot legally work. Many have filed for refugee status with the U.N. refugee agency and hope to be resettled in a third country such as the U.S. — a dream that few actually realize.“What do you expect us to do? We have been very nice to the people who broke into our border,” Malaysian Deputy Home Minister Wan Junaidi Jafaar said last Friday. “We have treated them humanely, but they cannot be flooding our shores like this…. They are not welcome here.”While there is a strong emotional argument that the people on the boats need to be saved, any country that does so will have to deal with difficult issues such as their legal standing and dependence on government support. Thitinan said setting up a coordinated regional framework to cope with the problem will take time, and predicted that it would succeed only with international financial support. The crisis is among the 10-nation group’s biggest tests since the Vietnam War, both in whether it can protect migrants’ lives and to what extent the group can confront one of its members — in this case Myanmar. The stakes for ASEAN are high, given the global attention the crisis is getting and the possibility that many migrants could die if no country takes them in.“This is a test for ASEAN, for ASEAN’s sustainability. Its legitimacy will depend on this, and how it is resolved,” said Charles Santiago, a Malaysian parliamentarian who is chairman of a regional lawmakers’ group pressing for human rights and has spoken out about the need to rescue the refugees and migrants floating in Malacca Strait waters.Some cracks in the group’s bedrock principle of non-interference have appeared.Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said over the weekend that Myanmar should take responsibility for resolving ethnic tensions with the Rohingya to prevent other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations from being burdened, according to the national news agency Bernama.Rohingya in Myanmar have been persecuted for years, and only more so since 2011, when a long-ruling junta gave way to a nominally elected government. More than 120,000 Rohingya have fled the country since 2012, as Buddhist mobs killed up to 280 of them and drove tens of thousands from their homes. Those displaced are forced to live in camps where they can’t work, get an adequate education or receive medical care. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 0 Comments   Share   BANGKOK (AP) — The Southeast Asian grouping known as ASEAN has made a point of not pressuring member nations over internal issues such as rights abuses, and in the case of Myanmar’s persecuted Rohingya minority, the policy has come back to haunt it.Three other ASEAN nations — Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand — now must contend with a humanitarian crisis involving thousands of Rohingya and Bangladeshis stranded off their shores. After years of ignoring the issue, their chances of using diplomacy to achieve any change in Myanmar’s behavior appear bleak.center_img The vital role family plays in society “This is going to put on display ASEAN’s impotence,” said Thitinan Pongsudhirak, a political scientist and director of the Institute of Security and International Studies at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University. “This is another reflection of ASEAN’s ineffectual cohesion.”Founded in 1967 as an anti-communist bloc in the Cold War era, ASEAN has taken few steps to address human rights concerns in the vast region of 600 million people. In a charter adopted in 2007, ASEAN countries committed to uphold international law and human rights but insisted they would not interfere in each other’s internal affairs — a loophole that critics say helps member states commit abuses without consequence. In 2009, the group unveiled a commission that was tasked to promote human rights but deprived of power to investigate violations or go after abusers.At times, ASEAN members have been critical of Myanmar, particularly during the years it was ruled by a military junta.Though Rohingya asylum-seekers generally go to other ASEAN countries — particularly Malaysia — Myanmar’s neighbors have long tolerated the exodus. Ironically, a crackdown by Thai authorities on human smugglers contributed to the crisis, prompting many boat captains and traffickers to abandon their vessels and leave migrants crammed on board with little food, water or fuel, drifting along in the ocean currents. In Thailand, leaders have said the migrant crisis isn’t their problem but needs to be addressed by the “origin country” — without being more specific. Myanmar refuses to even use the word “Rohingya,” saying the group illegally migrated from Bangladesh, though Rohingya have lived in Myanmar for generations.Myanmar’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement released Tuesday night that it is “equally concerned about the migrant crisis” and will patrol its waters with planes and ships to “save those in trouble.”However, Myanmar denies it is the source of the crisis and appears unwilling to join in regional talks to address it. Its government has cast doubt on whether it will attend a conference to be hosted by Thailand on May 29 that is to include 15 Asian nations affected by the emergency.Foreign ministers from Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand — countries where about 3,000 migrants washed ashore in crowded boats in recent weeks but that have turned away other vessels — are scheduled to hold a separate meeting Wednesday in Kuala Lumpur.But experts are doubtful the ministers will be too critical of Myanmar, which could serve to only underline ASEAN’s toothless reputation. Most likely, the immediate focus will be on managing the crisis and not getting to the root causes. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober In this April 27, 2015, file photo, from left to right, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Najib Razak, Myanmar’s President Thein Sein, Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen, Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo and Philippine’s President Benigno Aquino III join their hands during the opening ceremony for the 26th ASEAN Summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For years, the Southeast Asian grouping known as ASEAN has come under fire for being a toothless organization for its bedrock policy of staying out of each other’s internal affairs, and for ignoring the plight of Myanmar’s persecuted Rohingya minority. Now, a spiraling humanitarian crisis involving thousands of Rohingya and Bangladeshis stranded at sea, one of the region’s most serious problems since the Vietnam War, has brought those two realities into sharp focus under the uncomfortable glare of the international spotlight.

With the semifinals back New Years Day viewershi

first_img With the semifinals back New Year’s Day, viewership for the College Football Playoff on ESPN was the highest it has been since the first season of the post-season system in 2015.The double overtime Rose Bowl thriller between Georgia and Oklahoma drew a 14.8 overnight Nielsen rating and average viewership of 27 million, up 39 per cent over last season’s early semifinal. Georgia beat Oklahoma 54-48 and ESPN said the television rating reached a high of 17.3 in overtime.The Sugar Bowl between Alabama and Clemson got a 12.5 rating and average viewership of 21.1 million, up 10 per cent from last season’s second semifinal.The last two seasons the semifinals were played on Dec. 31. The CFP drew record viewership for ESPN in its first season when games were played on Jan. 1, 2015.Overall, ESPN had its best average viewership for the New Year’s Six in the four-year history of the College Football Playoff format. The results were aided by the calendar, the changes made to the format in 2016 that moved games away from New Year’s Eve and some big-brand teams in the non-semifinal matchups.ESPN executive vice-president for programming and scheduling Burke Magnus said simply having the semifinals back on Jan. 1 had network officials optimistic about the size of the audience.“We knew that going into this year, the tweaks that had been made over the last couple years and then getting back to the first year of the cycle again, with the semis on Jan. 1, was going to be a very favourable circumstance,” Magnus said.Continuing that ratings success could be difficult for ESPN with an all-Southeastern Conference championship game Jan. 8 matching Alabama and Georgia in Atlanta. The all-SEC championship after the 2011 season between Alabama and LSU was the lowest-rated title game in the Bowl Championship Series’ 16-year history.Magnus said the regional matchup is not necessarily cause for concern, not after having Clemson and Alabama in the championship game the past two years, teams from different conferences but both from the South.“It would always be to our advantage just from a pure fan interest perspective to have teams representing multiple regions of the country,” Magnus said. “That being said, Alabama is the No. 1 draw in the sport now from a television perspective, or maybe you can argue they flip-flop with Ohio State. They’re a gigantic brand and huge draw. I like the buzz Georgia is getting come off that great Rose Bowl game.”Having two SEC teams play for the championship in the heart of the South and just 70 miles from Georgia’s campus will be a boon for ticket sellers.StubHub said demand for tickets to the national championship game was up 106 per cent over this time last year, when Clemson and Alabama were set to play for the second straight year and the game was in Tampa, Florida. The company said Tuesday that the average ticket price on StubHub for Alabama-Georgia was $2,689, with the lowest available at $1,930 for upper end zone seats in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.This season’s New Year’s Six got off to a good start for ESPN with Ohio State-Southern California in the Cotton Bowl, played Friday night, Dec. 29. The game drew the best rating (5.9 and 9.468 million viewers) of any non-semifinal game during the four years of the current format. The Fiesta Bowl with Penn State and Washington and the Orange Bowl with Miami and Wisconsin were played Saturday, Dec. 30. No bowl games were played on Dec. 31; college football traditionally has avoided competing against the NFL on Sunday.“That’s about as good, for fans and for us, as you can get,” Magnus said. “It’s still compressed around the New Year’s holiday, but you get everything as clean as you can for giving fans an opportunity to watch.”The FBS conference commissioners who manage the College Football Playoff backed off the original plan to schedule the semifinals on New Year’s Eve during most of the 12 years of the media rights deal with ESPN and tinkered with the schedule in 2016. Next season’s CFP semifinal doubleheader is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 29. The season after that, the games are slated to be played on Saturday, Dec. 28, and there will be a 17-day gap between the semifinals and the championship game on Monday, Jan. 13, in New Orleans.The semifinals return to Jan. 1 for the 2020 season. The semifinals can only be played on New Year’s Day when they are held in the Rose and Sugar bowls because those games and the conferences affiliated with them have contracts with ESPN locking in those time slots.___Follow Ralph D.

at megan women and children "I love you tooThe story Dixon-Cole spun afterward was alarming: She claimed the trooper repeatedly told her he’d let her go in exchange for sexual favors When she said no she claimed the trooper sexually assaulted her according to a statement Monday from her attorneyHer story was widely shared on social media aided by social activist and blogger Shaun King who recently brought attention to the New York lawyer who made xenophobic comments about Spanish-speaking employees at a New York deli King wrote in a blog post: "This system was not designed to protect us – it was designed to punish us – and for it to do anything other than that – we must force it work on our behalf"But on Tuesday the Texas Department of Safety released nearly two hours of body camera footage that starkly conflicts with Dixon-Cole’s claims While parts of the video are blurred or inaudible to conceal the Dixon-Cole’s personal information it shows her being pulled over and asked to take a sobriety test She’s then handcuffed and transported to the Ellis County jail where she’s charged with a DWI She was released Sunday night after posting bondLee Merritt Dixon-Cole’s Dallas-based attorney apologized for her claims in a statement Wednesday saying the footage conflicted with what was reported to him"It is deeply troubling when innocent parties are falsely accused and I am truly sorry for any trouble these claims may have caused Officer Hubbard and his family" he wrote "I take full responsibility for amplifying these claims to the point of national concern"He wrote that his office receives hundreds of abuse complaints from across the country and is obligated to filter them before broadcasting them His swiftness in publicizing Dixon-Cole’s claims Merritt wrote was a means of getting to the truth quickly and accuratelyMerritt thanked those who voiced their demands for justice in the wake of the falsified incident"However" he wrote "In this matter it seems your righteous vigilance was abused"King who has worked with a number of anti-police brutality and misconduct causes including Black Lives Matter and is now a columnist for national security news site The Intercept appears to have deleted his tweet sharing Dixon-Cole’s allegations On Wednesday he tweeted that the body camera footage "does not appear to show any verbal threats sexual assault or police brutality" He also amended his blog post to acknowledge the body camera footage Still the incident exemplified the power of King’s position and the widespread attention to the case could likely be traced back to his sway on Twitter During the Charlottesville Virginia protests in August – when six white supremacists kicked a 20-year-old African-American and pummeled him with what appeared to be wooden sticks and a large board – King took it upon himself to try and identify the assailants so that they could be arrestedHe was credited with identifying at least two of the attackers The Post’s Ian Shapira reportedOn Wednesday afternoon King published an article on Medium in part titled "When the ‘victim’ you fought for turns out to be the victimizer" which addressed Dixon-Cole’s allegations He wrote that Dixon-Cole stood by her claims and said the body camera footage must have been editedKing disagreed"This is not unthinkable" he wrote "I have seen it happen before but it absolutely does not appear to happen here Outside of personal information being blurred out the video appears to be in its original form"He went on to write that in the United States tens of thousands of people are assaulted abused falsely arrested and threatened by police But he wrote Dixon-Cole is not one of those victims:"She victimized the man she falsely accused and she victimized those who stood up for her – believing that she had experienced the worst crimes Thankfully she does not represent anyone but herself She does not represent actual victims of sex crimes She does not represent actual victims of police brutality And she does not represent black women or black people An awful tendency exists in this country to hold all people of color responsible for the transgressions of one person in that group That’s racism and it must be rejected here We reject what Sherita Dixon-Cole has done here It’s awful"Neither Dixon-Cole nor the trooper could be immediately reached by The Post for commentThe Texas DPS said in a statement that it was authorized by the Ellis County District Attorney’s Office to release the body camera footage after "spurious and false accusations" were brought against the trooper"The video shows absolutely no evidence to support the egregious and unsubstantiated accusations against the Trooper during the DWI arrest of the suspect" officials said "The Department is appalled that anyone would make such a despicable slanderous and false accusation against a peace officer who willingly risks his life every day to protect and serve the public"It is not clear whether Dixon-Cole will face criminal charges for her accusations Ellis County District Attorney Patrick Wilson told the Dallas Morning News Wednesday that his office was still investigating "what was said
