XPS is arguably the best consumer line of laptops that Dell has going now. They usually have more power than the popular Inspiron line, offer parts upgrades that aren’t too pricey, all while being relatively easy on the eyes.This particular deal on a Dell XPS 15 is a great example. For $449 off the retail price, this build lands you a quad-core setup with Core i7 processors, 8GB RAM, discrete NVIDIA GeForce 540M graphics (2GB), and a spacious 1TB hard drive. It’s not super slim or light at 5.96lbs., but it’s still easy enough to tote around and powerful enough to supplant most desktops.It’s a fairly serious configuration and in the same general price range as those come-hither ultrabooks, which don’t offer nearly as much horsepower or space. Additionally, a Blu-ray player and burner comes built in, along with 2.1 JBL speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 3 and a 2MP webcam. The HDMI, DisplayPort, and two USB 3.0 inputs are a nice addition, and the TV tuner might be the best-kept secret on this laptop.This model also has a 1080p display, which is pretty unusual for even high-end laptops, unless you’re willing to pay for the upgrade. Usually, all these extra would tack hundreds of dollars onto the price. Instead, Dell has it up for offer at a 27% discount, at $1199 for a nicely outfitted system.Check out this deal on LogicBuy.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Joseph Valadakis, 48, is expected to face a lengthy prison sentence after posing as the British royal family’s doctor and extracting £160,000 from his ‘patients’.Valadakis defrauded two families of vast sums after convincing them that they were the only ‘commoners’ he was permitted to treat. His treatments included creams consisting of snail excrement, ‘dinosaur clay’ and whale sperm that were used for massages. Valadakis’ patients footed enormous medical bills on the presumption they were being treated by a real doctor. His website listed all of his supposed credentials, including a PhD in quantum physics from Cambridge University and leading a team undertaking clandestine research at University College Hospital in London. The fraudster moved to the United Kingdom from Australia in the early 1990s, and told his patients he had treated well-heeled Britons such as Theresa May, Russell Brand, Robbie Williams and Sophia Loren, after setting up the website under the pseudonym of Josef Hoffman. His cons included convincing a father of two, Phillip Randerson, that he had pancreatic cancer. Randerson’s wife Emma said Valadakis scared them out of seeking a second opinion. “We trusted that he was going to cure Philip of cancer,” she said in court. “He told us we would only be paying for the products that we used. He said he didn’t charge for his time because this was a hobby to him. “He said he was allowed to treat 10 per cent of commoners. In return we would pay two per cent of the price of the product that we used and in return we would act as research for the government.” During proceedings Valadakis said he never presented himself as a doctor, rather a biophysicist, but a jury convicted him of two charges of fraud by misrepresentation, clearing him of one fraud offence. He has now been remanded and is awaiting sentencing.
Facebook Triple H Now Playing Up Next Now Playing Up Next Seth Rollins Defends WWE On Two Separate Occasions WWE issued the following statement today about two of their current, ongoing lawsuits that was included in their 10-K filing:“On July 26, 2014, the Company received notice of a lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, entitled Warren Ganues and Dominic Varriale, on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated, v. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., Vincent K. McMahon and George A. Barrios, alleging violations of federal securities laws based on certain statements relating to the negotiation of WWE’s domestic television license. The complaint seeks certain unspecified damages. A nearly identical lawsuit was filed one month later entitled Curtis Swanson, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, v. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., Vincent K. McMahon and George A. Barrios. Both lawsuits are purported securities class actions subject to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (“PSLRA”). On September 23-24, five putative plaintiffs filed motions to be appointed lead plaintiff and to consolidate the two cases pursuant to the PSLRA. Following a hearing on October 29, 2014, the Court issued an order dated November 5, 2014 appointing Mohsin Ansari as Lead Plaintiff and consolidating the two actions. On January 5, 2015, the Lead Plaintiff filed an amended complaint. Among other things, the amended complaint adds Stephanie McMahon Levesque and Michelle D. Wilson as named defendants. While these lawsuits are in the early stages, the Company believes the claims are without merit and intends to vigorously defend itself against them.”“On October 23, 2014, a purported class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon, entitled William Albert Haynes III, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated, v. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., and on January 16, 2015 a purported class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, entitled Evan Singleton and Vito LoGrasso, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, v. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., both alleging that the Company ignored, downplayed, and/or failed to disclose the risks associated with traumatic brain injuries suffered by WWE’s performers. These suits both seek unspecified actual, compensatory and punitive damages and injunctive relief, including ordering medical monitoring. The Company believes the claims are without merit and intends to vigorously defend itself against them.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipIs WWE Losing Its Audience?Video Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:29/Current Time 0:05Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -0:24 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 18, 2017 – Grand Turk – Historically today, the Turks and Caicos will hear the financial plan of a new government which is led by a lady, who also happens to be the country’s Minister of Finance, Investment and Trade, Hon Sharlene Robinson.It has been 13 years since the People’s Democratic Movement as Government has laid out their fiscal strategy for the Turks and Caicos Islands, and while the budget is said to have a continuation of many PNP projects there are allotments which the PDM is touting as characteristic of what their party deems important to national development.In a debrief this morning, Speaker of the House of Assembly, Hon Dwayne Taylor shared with Magnetic Media that coverage of the session will be wide with live streaming online at Facebook courtesy of Life Productions, on Digicel Play Ch2 also courtesy of Life Productions; on radio via Radio Turks and Caicos which also has live audio streaming from its website and aired over Ch53 on the PTV network and there is live coverage by 4News on the Digicel network.Hon Taylor said he anticipates 100% attendance by all elected and appointed members of Parliament for the convening which opened at 10am and opening prayer is by Rev. Claire Robinson. Acting Attorney General, Dr. Michael Dillon will be sworn in to fill the ex-officio role of the AG in the House of Assembly, as Hon RhondaLee Braithwaite-Knowles is absent.The Appropriations Bill 2017-2018 will be presented by Premier Robinson, a rebuttal by the Leader of the Opposition PNP or a designate will follow. “It is expected that debate on the Budget will take up most of the proceedings and we expect that the Bill will go through all three readings today,” explained Speaker Taylor.While you never know, the Speaker said he expects there to be no hiccups in HOA operations today, and announced that within this fiscal year it is expected that the House of Assembly will again be relocated for 3-4 months for repairs, which includes the leaky roof of the NJS Francis Building, which is where parliament is housed. The building is a part of an already heralded ‘green project’ by the PDM Administration.Two other bills are on the agenda for a possible first reading, and the hot button issue of service charges to hospitality workers will see the Private Members Motion requesting an amendment to the law likely to a second reading within this session which runs until this Friday, April 21, 2017.The Premier does have the prerogative to re-order the agenda, so things could change explained the Speaker. On the order paper, five questions from the Opposition; four from Leeward and Long Bay Hills member, Hon Akierra Missick and one question from Appointed member for the PNP, Hon Royal Robinson.The House of Assembly is currently in session.#MagneticMediaNews#HOAinsession#historicdayinTCIHouseofAssembly Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#historicdayinTCIHouseofAssembly, #HOAinsession, #magneticmedianews

The tradition is so deeply entwined in New Orleans culture and history that many parts of the city have an annual, semiunofficial “second line season,” in which residents engage in spur-of-the-moment second line parades almost every Sunday.As a New Orleans native and longtime resident prior to his passing, Fats Domino would surely have been touched by the outpouring of support and joyous celebration of his life and contribution to the city’s musical culture.Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings: Watch New Video For “Call On God” https://twitter.com/BeauWillimon/status/925862382726983681 The rock and roll pioneer received an unforgettable musical send-off from his hometown Brian HaackGRAMMYs Nov 2, 2017 – 12:00 pm An estimated 10,000 people gathered on Nov. 1 to say farewell to the late rock and roll pioneer Fats Domino, who passed away on Oct. 24 at the age of 89. In inimitable New Orleans style, the gathered crowd broke out their brass horns, tambourines, and Mardi Gras digs to give Domino an unforgettable “second line” send off as they marched through the city’s iconic Ninth Ward and past the singer’s former home on Caffin Avenue. Participants included Dominos’ grandson Chevis Domino and fellow New Orleans natives Dr. John and Trombone Shorty, as Billboard reports. 10,000 Musicians, Fans Gather To Honor Fats Domino In New Orleans Fats Domino’s 10,000-Strong Second Line Send-Off 10000-musicians-fans-gather-honor-fats-domino-new-orleans Email
Share Julian AguilarOur Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in El Paso.The backdrop for Rev. Noel Andersen’s sermon last week wasn’t a church dais but the gates of the Governor’s Mansion in Austin. The unusual setting didn’t stop him from preaching about his disappointment in Gov. Greg Abbott for signing one of the most aggressive state-based immigration laws in the country the night before.“Somebody told me once that the Bible was important here,” Andersen said, ginning up an already fiery crowd of opponents that have, since January, railed against Senate Bill 4.Andersen is from Washington, D.C., where his nonprofit, Church World Service, is based. But he said he expects to spend much of the summer in Texas, working to reignite a movement of churches offering “sanctuary” to the undocumented, an effort that has taken on a new urgency since Abbott signed SB 4, which goes into effect Sept. 1.“We do expect to see a greater need now as immigrants are being more targeted through SB 4 and through President Trump’s policies,” Andersen said. “[The goal is] helping stop a deportation order and creating space to create a legal campaign to be able to stop that deportation and keep those people with their families.”The bill allows peace officers to question the immigration status of people they legally detain or arrest. It also punishes department heads and elected officials who don’t cooperate with federal immigration agents. The governor and other supporters of the bill insist it’s needed to deter people who are already in the country illegally from committing more crimes.But law enforcement agencies and faith-based organizations argue the law opens up the state to legalized racial profiling and threatens to undermine the trust immigrants place in local police officers. Some religious groups argue that those concerns have been largely ignored by Texas Republican leaders that have supported the bill. The governor’s office did not respond to an email requesting comment for this story.But Andersen said there is a silver lining if the new law draws more attention to the decades-long practice of recognizing churches and other buildings as “sensitive locations” when it comes to immigration enforcement.“Sanctuary congregations are committed to opening their congregations to undocumented people who are in need,” Andersen said. “Oftentimes, that includes someone facing a deportation order or an imminent deportation.” Andersen’s effort is just one example of how opponents of SB 4 are expected to mobilize over the summer across Texas ahead of the bill’s Sept. 1 implementation date. Last week, the League of United Latin American Citizens, Maverick County and the city of El Cenizo sued Texas over the bill. More lawsuits are expected.Faith-based groups have the wind at their backs in one respect: Immigration and Customs Enforcement have long recognized churches and other buildings as generally off limits, except under extreme circumstances.“The policies provide that enforcement actions at or focused on sensitive locations such as schools, places of worship, and hospitals should generally be avoided, and that such actions may only take place when (a) prior approval is obtained from an appropriate supervisory official, or (b) there are exigent circumstances necessitating immediate action without supervisor approval,” an ICE memo states.The “sensitive locations” policy predates Trump, but Andersen said he hasn’t heard the administration has plans to change it. In a memo released in March, the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the policy was still in effect.“They could rescind that, but we believe even without that policy … there is a certain symbolic protection that congregations and places of worship have,” he said.The movement has been around since the 1980s, when a wave of Central American immigrants came to the United States seeking refuge. After a meeting between Presbyterians and a Quakers in Arizona, the two networks joined forces and began offering safe haven to Nicaraguans and El Salvadorans, according to the Migration Policy Institute. The movement eventually spread to Illinois, northern California and South Texas.The movement has experienced a resurgence in the country since 2014 that included an Austin case involving a Central American undocumented immigrant. In June 2015, Sulma Franco, a gay woman from Guatemala, was taken in by the staff of First Unitarian Universalist Church after receiving a final deportation order. She said her sexual orientation made her a target in the violent Central American country and refused to report to ICE. The agency eventually relented, and Franco was granted a stay two months later.To be sure, not all faith-based groups view themselves as sanctuary congregations, but some have a history of aiding undocumented people in other ways. “Texas Baptist Convention has an immigration service center in San Antonio, but it doesn’t house anyone,” said Dr. Gus Reyes, the director of the Texas Baptist Christian Life Commission. “But anyone who is here and has any possibility of receiving legal status or going from a green card visa to becoming a U.S. citizen, we try to help those folks.”Last week, Andersen expressed hope that Austin would set the example and spread the sanctuary message across the state.“We have a strong movement in Austin, and we have dedicated faith leaders that work with immigrants and refugees throughout Texas,” he said.Read related coverage:Here are five things you should know about Senate Bill 4 and how it will affect Texas’ undocumented immigrants and local authorities.Border town El Cenizo and Maverick County have sued the state of Texas over Senate Bill 4, claiming constitutional violations.The police chief of the largest city in Texas said he will enforce SB 4 but hopes his officers realize the risks they place themselves in by becoming de facto immigration agents.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/05/16/after-sb4-faith-based-groups-work-spread-message-sanctuary-congregatio/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.
Two pieces of legislation in Congress could help African Americans and others fight chronic kidney disease and survive, according to the National Kidney Foundation. One is the Chronic Kidney Disease Improvement in Research and Treatment Act (H.R. 4814), introduced by Reps. Tom Marino (R-Penn.) and John Lewis (D-Ga.) in June. The bill promotes chronic kidney disease research and education, expands care coordination efforts, and protect access to care for dialysis patients.“This legislation calls for the federal government to provide a report on all the research that has occurred in minority populations and what those findings are,” Tonya Saffer, senior health policy director for the National Kidney Foundation, said.The CDC defines chronic kidney disease as a condition where kidneys are damaged and cannot filter blood, allowing wastes to remain in the body, which usually causes other health problems. According to the foundation, diabetes and high blood pressure are the two main causes of kidney failure in the United States. African Americans have an increased risk of developing kidney failure with 32 percent receiving dialysis for kidney failure even though Blacks account for only 13 percent of the U.S. population, according to the foundation’s website.She said the bill would help identify the reasons African Americans are less likely to receive a kidney transplant. “One particularly noteworthy provision in the legislation is that it requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to report to Congress the social, behavioral, and biological factors leading to kidney disease, current efforts to slow the progression of kidney disease in minority populations, and treatment patterns associated with providing care to minority populations,” Saffer said.The Comprehensive Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients Act of 2013 (H.R. 1428/ S. 323), insures Kidney transplant patients have continuous access vital medications needed to survive by extending Medicare coverage for kidney transplant recipients. Currently, patients who receive kidney transplants lose Medicare coverage 36 months after the transplant if they are younger than 65 and have no other disabilities. “This bill helps kidney transplant recipients, who are unable to obtain health insurance once their Medicare coverage expires, maintain access to the lifesaving drugs they need to make sure they don’t reject their transplanted kidney,” Saffer said.She said access to viable health insurance is still a problem for kidney disease patients, even though the Affordable Care Act has been initiated. “While the Affordable Care Act has helped many people access comprehensive insurance that would cover these medications, in some states many lower income individuals are still unable to get health insurance,” she said.Tony Washington, a retired D.C. Public Schools employee, said he was fortunate to have both Medicare and insurance from his job help pay for the treatment. After being on dialysis for 13 years, Washington received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor in 2011.As a survivor he goes to health fairs, speaking engagements, and other events suggested by the foundation to share his experiences and encourage people to have regular check-ups. “I want to put the word out there, just because you’re healthy and look good, that does not mean that you ok,” Washington said.The National Institute of Health is conducting a study on kidney disease, where they have discovered a gene, Apol 1, that is more likely to be found in people of African-American descent at rick for kidney failure.New cases of kidney failure among African Americans have been declining over the past few years, however, the total number of Black people diagnosed is still highest, said Constance Mere, associate professor of medicine division of Nephrology at Howard University Hospital.
‘Through HRC’s work in the South, we have found that the most effective way to change hearts and minds is simply to share the stories of our LGBTQ friends and neighbors,’ said Ben Needham, director of Project One America.‘With #LoveYourNeighbor, we take the stories of LGBTQ people living in the South and share them with a broad audience – many of whom may not have had an opportunity previously to hear these powerful accounts.’Other videos feature Zeek and Dick, a married gay couple from Eureka Springs, Arkansas who have been together 45 years, and Tommie a gay priest from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. All the videos can be viewed at the HRC YouTube page.‘The sting of rejection’Eva Kendrick, HRC Alabama state director, told GSN, ‘Jolie and Lillie Ben’s video speaks to a troubling reality: even with family support, LGBTQ people can still feel the sting of rejection from society.‘That rejection can create a cascading effect, where the expectations put on a young woman can feel stifling, leading to addiction or depression.‘While Ann Emory’s story is deeply sad, it is an important one to tell because it can perhaps open up the eyes of the same society that made her feel she was less than equal.’Struggling with coming out or homophobia? Check out these helplines if you are in need of urgent support.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… A mom has given a heartbreaking account of the death of her lesbian daughter from a drugs overdose. Jolie, who lives in Birmingham, Alabama, says part of the reason her daughter was driven to drink and drugs was because of the homophobia she experienced when she came out. Ann Emory came out to her mom when she was 17 by writing her a long letter. Jolie says it was a beautiful letter and she was heartbroken when Ann Emory told her she had been scared to give it to her. She adds she had always known her daughter might be gay.However, Ann Emory believed her friends would be less accepting: the Southern States in the US are not known for being widely LGBTI-friendly. Evangelical churches often preach less than loving messages about gay people.At High School, she began drinking, telling her mom she was ‘drowning the gay girl … I’m not as gay when I drink’.As feared, several friends distanced themselves when Ann Emory came out to them. She turned to prescription medication, on top of her heavy drinking.#LoveYourNeighborOn the night in question, the family were angry with Ann Emory for having gone out drinking again. The next morning, they thought she was sleeping in late.‘Her dad went down to check on her, to tell her it was time to eat and … she was dead. He screamed, and I knew, I knew from his scream that she was gone.’The video has been made by Human Rights Campaign, the LGBT advocacy and civil rights organization.

At Thursday’s press conference, held at Antonio Escarré Park in San José, agent Álvaro Montalván recalled the day trainers brought Solano to Nicaragua more than a year ago on a recommendation from a friend and scout.“We had him go into the bullpen and he seemed like an intriguing prospect to us,” Montalván said. “He’s a fast-armed prospect that relies on two types of pitches: a slider and a fastball. He came to us with velocity problems, reaching 87 mph when he should have been reaching a minimum of 90 mph. After some training throughout this time we’ve been able to get him throwing up to 92 mph.”Solano will begin in Houston’s farm system, where the team will be able to call him up the minor league ladder and possibly even give him a shot at the majors. The Astros are slated to start Solano off in the Dominican Republic summer league that begins in a matter of weeks.“Bryan is an athletic righty with a good pitch repertoire,” scout Locadio Guevara, who signed Solano, told reporters at the press conference. “He throws a lot of strikes and keeps his ball count low.“For our manager Jeff Luhnow and our international director Oz Campo, it’s of great pride that we have a Costa Rican player signed on to our farm system,” the scout added.According to Montalván, the contract runs for an indefinite amount of time and depends entirely on Solano’s progress and conduct on and off the baseball diamond.Alex Torres was the last Costa Rican-born player with an MLB contract in 2009 as part of the Cleveland Indians organization.“This is the reward for his hard work and toughness during all this time as a pitcher for the National Team and during national games,” said Vladimir Murillo, president of the Costa Rican Baseball Federation. “We are very proud as a federation and as a country to see him reach these heights. This can also open the door for more organizations to look at Costa Rica as a place for talent.” Facebook Comments In football-obsessed Costa Rica, searching for a big-time baseball talent is often a fruitless task. That didn’t stop a Major League club from scooping up right-handed Costa Rican pitching prospect Bryan Solano.On Thursday, the 19-year-old Limón native signed a contract with the Houston Astros, becoming the first Tico signed to a Major League Baseball (MLB) club in eight years.Currently playing in Nicaragua’s MLB developmental league, Solano is said to have an arsenal that includes a fastball north of 90 miles per hour, a solid slider, and an improving curveball.

Sponsored Stories Al-Qosi, who recently turned 52, had not seen his family since he was captured and sent to the U.S. base in Cuba in early 2002. His release brings the prison population down to 168.“I guess you call this probably the best birthday present he ever received,” Reichler, a Washington-based specialist in international law, said in a phone interview from Greece, where he was speaking at a legal conference.The Pentagon and state-run media in Sudan confirmed al-Qosi’s release.Al-Qosi admitted serving food and providing other services at a militant camp. He was among the first prisoners taken to the Guantanamo, the hastily arranged detention center to hold men suspected of ties to al-Qaida and the Taliban after the invasion of Afghanistan.From a high of nearly 700, the population is now down to less than 170. President Barack Obama vowed to close the prison but has been prevented from doing so by Congress.Al-Qosi, who moved to Afghanistan in 1996 to work with Islamic militants, struck a deal with U.S. military prosecutors in July 2010, pleading guilty to providing material support to terrorism and conspiracy in exchange for a 14-year sentence that would be shortened to two years from his conviction. It spared him the possibility of a much longer sentence, perhaps even life.

Top Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Associated PressKHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) – A man who spent a decade as a prisoner in the U.S. detention facility for militants in Guantanamo Bay returned Wednesday to his native Sudan after completing a shortened sentence for aiding al-Qaida in Afghanistan.Ibrahim al-Qosi was getting reacquainted with his wife and two daughters and other family members and will spend some time in a government-sponsored reintegration program in the capital, Khartoum, before returning to his hometown, said his lawyer Paul Reichler. He was never accused of any specific acts of violence. He worked as a cook and helped gather supplies for a militant camp. His lawyer said he may have accompanied Osama bin Laden as part of an entourage but was never a member of the terrorist leader’s inner circle. Bin-Laden, founder of al-Qaida, was killed in a U.S. raid in Pakistan last year.Prosecutors at his military tribunal argued that al-Qaida could not have operated without the support of people like al-Qosi and that such assistance amounted to war crimes.In Sudan, he will not face additional confinement, though he will be monitored as part of the reintegration program. Later, he will move back to his hometown of Atbara, where his family has a farm and a store, he said.Reichler said about nine former Guantanamo detainees have gone through the program, and there have been no cases of recidivism.“One of the main reasons the United States was willing to return him to Sudan was the U.S. confidence in the government of Sudan’s program and its confidence that Mr. al-Qosi would not represent any kind of threat to the United States,” he said. “If they had considered him a threat, they would not have released him.” Comments Share
