by The Associated Press Posted Oct 13, 2016 8:58 am MDT Last Updated Oct 13, 2016 at 12:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Arkansas court says voters can decide medical marijuana plan LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Arkansas voters will have their say on at least one medical marijuana proposal this November, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday.Justices sided with supporters of a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow patients with certain medical conditions to purchase marijuana from dispensaries. A coalition of groups, including the state Chamber of Commerce and the Arkansas Farm Bureau, had asked the court to prevent officials from counting any votes for the measure.“It is a flawed measure that hurts Arkansans,” said Jerry Cox, executive director of the Family Council Action Committee, which was one of the groups challenging the measure. Cox said he thinks the proposal will lead to legalized recreational marijuana in the state and that his will continue to campaign against the measure.There are two such proposals on the Nov. 8 ballot. The one allowed to stand Thursday lets patients with certain conditions to buy the drug, but differs from the second proposal in their restrictions and regulations. For example, the competing proposal allows patients to grow their own marijuana if they don’t live near a dispensary. There still was a pending challenge to the second competing proposal as of Thursday.The court said in its opinion that the challenge largely asked the justices to interpret the content of the amendment, which is not within its purview. Associate Justice Courtney Hudson Goodson wrote that the language of the measure does not have to cover every detail of the amendment.“We conclude that while inside the voting booth, the voters will be able to reach an intelligent and informed decision for or against The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016,” she wrote.Arkansas voters narrowly rejected a medical marijuana proposal four years ago, despite big spending from pro-legalization national groups.Meanwhile, national support for medical marijuana has grown, and half of the states and the District of Columbia have legalized the drug in some fashion. Arkansas is one of four states with medical marijuana proposals on this year’s ballot.But the push faces more obstacles this year. Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who headed the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, has spoken out against the measures. The state Democratic Party’s platform includes general support for legalizing medical marijuana, but the platform is silent on the two ballot measures. read more


A news release said that the FAO Food Price Index – tracking the monthly change in international market prices for five key commodity groups – averaged 178.4 points for the month of September, up 0.8 per cent from August and marking a 4.3 per cent increase from a year earlier. Vegetable oil prices increased by 4.6 per cent, driven primarily by palm oil, although values for soy, rapeseed and sunflower oils also rose. Dairy prices rose by 2.1 per cent from August, driven by butter and cheese prices at a time of supply constraints in Australia, New Zealand and the European Union. Meat prices were broadly unchanged. Cereal prices declined by 1.0 per cent, as maize and wheat quotations fell in step with strong supply and harvest prospects. FAO expects the current growing season to yield record worldwide cereals output. Sugar prices was unchanged for the month, but it was about 33 per cent below its year-ago level – a decline due to oversupply in world markets and a slowdown in demand. Cereal inventories head for a new highFAO updated its global cereal production forecast for 2017, raised to 2,612 million tonnes, or almost 7 million tonnes above the record set in 2016, according to the Cereal Supply and Demand Brief, also released today. September’s forecasts were raised on account of robust wheat production trends in Europe and Russia and expected maize outputs in China and the United States. FAO now forecasts 750.1 million tonnes of wheat to be harvested in 2017 and 1,361 million tonnes of coarse grains, as well as 500.7 million tonnes of rice. read more


A FlyBe aircraft Prince William and Prince Harry have regularly used economy airlines for short-haul flights, spotted on Easyjet, Ryanair, Wizz Air and FlyBe as well as British Airways. Previous trips to Balmoral have seen the Cambridges fly commercially to Aberdeen on several occasions, including with the wider Middleton family and, according to the Sunday Express, use a private plane once in 2015.  The SussexRoyal Instagram account shared an image of cupcakes bearing the mantras “Stay strong”, “You are enough”, “You are worthy” and “You are so loved”, which appeared to have been inspired by the messages she wrote for sex workers on bananas before her maternity leave.  The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children have flown to Scotland on a budget airline for their annual holiday with the Queen, days after their brother and sister-in-law were criticised for using private jets. The Cambridge family travelled to Balmoral via a FlyBe flight, where advance tickets cost £73.Accompanied by the children’s nanny, they are expected to visit the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at Balmoral for their annual summer break in the Scottish highlands. Spotted by members of the public as they walked with their luggage across the tarmac, the family are believed to have been travelling from their Norfolk home at Anmer where they have been spending part of the school holidays. The decision to fly with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis on the low-cost airline, which came to light after members of the public photographed them, was immediately noted by royal-watchers.  A spokesman for Kensington Palace said: “All travel arrangements for members of the Royal Family take into consideration security, efficiency, cost and effective use of time.”A train ticket from Norwich to Aberdeen costs £178.50.The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have this week faced heavy criticism for using private jets for four flights in the space of 11 days as they holidayed in Ibiza and Nice, despite their public commitment to the environment. A FlyBe aircraftCredit:Getty This summer, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and children also had a holiday in Mustique, with sources saying only that the costs of their flight were “met by them”. The Duke of York was photographed leaving Scotland on a private plane earlier this week. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also expected to visit Scotland with Archie Mountbatten-Windsor in August, but have not been photographed making the journey yet. Following criticism of their travel plans, the Duchess of Sussex used Instagram to tell followers of her work behind-the-scenes, sharing a video of her hugging women at charity Smartworks and “shining a light” on favourite London shop the Luminary Bakery.  Prince Harry is also reported to have flown privately to Google Camp in Sicily, where he delivered a bare-foot speech about climate change.Celebrity friends of the couple have defended their decisions, with Sir Elton John, who paid for the trip to Nice, saying the private jet allowed the Sussexes and their baby son to “maintain a high level of much-needed protection”.Actress Jameela Jamil, who wrote about body image for an issue of British Vogue guest edited by the Duchess, claimed that the public would face a serious security risk if they flew on planes with the Duke and Duchess, tweeting: “It’s not safe for us to be on the same planes as royals or presidents you absolute muppets.”They are prime targets for kidnap and sometimes assassination. In a quote posted alongside the image, the Duchess described it as a “space for baking, healing and rebuilding” and disclosed she had secretly visited the bakery. “It’s in the interest of us civilians to not be endangered by proximity to people in such powerful positions.”Both the Cambridges and Sussexes have used both private and commercial flights in the past. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew with Qantas for a long-haul journey to Australia for their first tour as a married couple, and joined members of the public on Royal Air Maroc for their trip to Morocco in the spring.  read more


first_imgYou may remember back in July we posted about one man outfit Harrison Krix who creates props to professional quality under the name Volpin Props. His project at the time was a Daft Punk helmet which he managed to recreate perfectly.His latest project is another success, as he’s managed to create a real-life version of the gun from Valve’s much-loved game Portal, including all the lights, markings, and sound effects. The video below shows the gun in all its glory:The Daft Punk helmet took 17 months to create and Harrison wasn’t about to start mass producing them for everyone to own and wear. But the Portal gun may be within your reach.He’s decided to put it up for auction on December 7 at the Child’s Play charity dinner run by Penny Arcade. Not only that, but it will come on a custom base signed by people from Valve.The project took a lot of effort and Harrison has taken time over every detail as the images below can attest: Harrison says that making the replica guns has been a life-changing experience:It’s hard not to be cheesy when you say something like this, but making these replicas has changed my life for the better, and I wanted to do the same for someone else. Ever since I finished my first Portal replica nearly 2 years ago, I had it in my head to make another specifically to benefit this cause. We certainly hope it makes the Child’s Play charity a lot of money in December, and also hope the gun ends up in a worthy location.Read more at Volpin Propslast_img read more

first_imgIt’s an article of faith among digital publishers that content partnerships are one of the key levers for success. If you’re operating a small site and you want to grow, you need to partner up with big distributors that can serve as megaphones, amplifying your content and, the theory goes, bringing a new audience back to you. If you’re running a big site, you need partners to provide fresh content, and lots of it, to satisfy the millions of eyeballs arriving each day. And so we live in a partnership ecosystem. As a medium-sized player, we at The Atlantic have partnerships going in both directions. We send some of our best stories to sites that have huge traffic. We take smart stories from smaller sites that are happy to share their goods with our strong brand and relatively large audience. All of these partnerships raise the obvious question: Is it really a good idea for publishers to give away their content for free? The arguments cut both ways. The chief argument in favor of sharing content is that you can get direct traffic in return. If the partner site is displaying your logo and linking to other stories on your site, it’s a fine idea to give away a story or two in return. This is a plausible theory that bears out on occasion. If, for example, Yahoo! runs a story from The Atlantic or one of our sister sites, especially on its home page, there can be a surge of traffic from Yahoo! back to our pages. Not always, and often the surge is more like a trickle, but it can be something. But what if The Atlantic’s partner has a particularly strong presence in social media? If it rips an Atlantic article and then uses its social infrastructure to push that piece to the world, the inbound traffic from Facebook or Twitter goes to the partner site, not to us. (This assumes that the partner is linking to our article on its site, not our article on our site.)We don’t worry much that when Yahoo! posts our story, they’re grabbing readers who would otherwise have read that piece on TheAtlantic.com. Those might be separate audiences. But if our partner was dominating Facebook, Twitter and Reddit with links back to our story on its site, our own social efforts might be drowned out. With social media now generating the plurality of our unique visitors, this could hurt. Now let’s consider branding. This, some say, ought to be the tiebreaker. If you accept that there are gains to be made from direct links but losses to be suffered in social media (and maybe don’t be too quick to accept either of those theories), then the branding benefit could be persuasive. The theory, of course, is that just having your logo on another site, even if there are no clicks back, is good exposure for your brand. Certainly there’s logic in that: A highway road sign provides branding, even if customers are cruising past at 60 mph. Maybe you’ll stop at that pancake house not now, but in the next state over. OK, but there’s a case to be made that people have been trained to tune out the noise when they’re on websites—to avoid the blinking ads and the right-rail modules and the partner logos.  If they’re reading defensively, if they’re tuning out the noise, then you’re not getting exposure after all. And, if you were happily trading exposure for some losses in social media, well, maybe that trade isn’t worth it anymore. I still believe in content partnerships. But we should be honest about the possible tradeoffs, and humble in our certainty about how exactly these arrangements work.Bob Cohn is editor of Atlantic Digital.

first_imgUshoshi Sengupta condemned the Kolkata Police department for their inaction.Facebook/Ushoshi SenguptaFormer Miss India Universe Ushoshi Sengupta was allegedly harassed by a group of unidentified men in Kolkata while she was on her way back home from work on Monday (June 17) night. Ushoshi booked a cab from a five-star hotel and was returning home with a colleague at around 11.40 pm when her cab was stopped and even the driver was assaulted by the group.The 30-year-old model narrated her ordeal on Facebook and also shared a video of the incident, in which the group of boys can be seen harassing her and her driver. Also, a photo of the smashed front windshield of her cab has been shared.Ushoshi condemned the Kolkata Police department for their inaction and said that officers of the nearest Maidan Police Station initially did not come for help despite her repeated requests. She even tagged a few media houses and the official Facebook handles of Kolkata Police, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, actor-turned-MP Mimi Chakraborty and many others in her Facebook post.Here is Ushoshi’s full post:”Last night 17th June 2019 at around 11:40 pm I took an uber from JW Marriott Kolkata to go back home after finishing work since I work with the Media and Entertainment industry working late hours is necessary in my job profile. I was accompanied by my colleague. We were taking a left turn from the Exide crossing towards Elgin while few boys in a bike (without a helmet) came and hit the Uber. To which they stopped the bike and started yelling at the driver. In a fraction of second, there were 15 boys and they all started banging the car window and dragging the driver out. They dragged the driver and started beating him up. This is when I stepped out and started shouting taking a video of the incident (attached below). I ran across the street to Maidan Police station, I saw an officer standing and I requested him to come with me, he told me that this is not under them but under the jurisdiction of Bhawanipore Police station. This is when I broke down I begged them to come or else the boys would have killed the driver. The officers came and held the boys saying why are they creating a nuisance. The boys pushed the police officers and ran away. After everything was over two officers from Bhawanipore police station came, by then it was 12 am. I requested the driver to drop me and my colleague home and decided to take it up with the police station tomorrow morning.”To my utter surprise the boys followed us till my colleague’s house and right when we were dropping him near lake gardens govt housing, 6 of the boys in 3 bikes came and stopped my car, threw stones, broke the car. Dragged me out and tried to break my phone to delete the video. My colleague jumped out of fear and I was completely shaken. I came out started shouting by now the locals had come out.”I took a breather and called my dad and my sister. Considering it happens in the next lane and in my locality (my para). The cops came told me to do an FIR at Charu Market police station. I went there Met the sub-inspector who told me my complaint will be only taken by the Bhawanipore police station. At this point, I gave up and started shouting. 1:30 am. No female police officer at the station. After raising a lot of questions the officer took my complaint but refused to take the uber drivers to complain stating that 2 FIR’s can’t be taken for the same complaint. And he told me that it’s against the law. My uber driver insisted that he wants to do the complain but the officers didn’t take it. I am attaching the video of the mob and the picture of the broken car.”Firstly, if you are getting mobbed, violated, molested or even killed please be assured about the jurisdiction of the police station before running to them. Because even if it is 100 meters away from your spot and not under the jurisdiction chances are very rare they will come and help.”Secondly, how do 15 boys without a helmet have such ease to beat up the Uber driver and break the car. In south Kolkata??? What I realised that this was a way to extract money from the driver by threatening him in a mob. This is absolutely a way of extortion.”Thirdly, even if the mob is beating the driver if you step out and raise a voice you will be attacked. To help others and stand up is a scary thing to do because the police who was 100 metres away refused to help. The sub-inspector refused to take my drivers FIR stating that it’s not under the law.”And lastly, this could happen to anybody, your sister coming back from tuition, your mother coming back from work, your father who is driving the car or your brother who is trying to protect you. My Uber driver Tarak who probably has got his Uber on loan and driving and making money for his family, who is trying to defy the odds of unemployment and working hard will be scared to drive, will be scared to reach out to the judiciary.”Last night absolutely shook me. This is not the Kolkata I came back to, not the Kolkata I left flourishing career outside to come back and live. I represented Kolkata and won the title of Miss India I represent this city, I represent this county I stand up for every girl every citizen who is scared to live in this situation. Despite making the FIR I never saw any steps being taken against the boys. And not only the locals the police also could identify the boys in the video.”Shame (sic).”The post by Ushoshi has gone viral on Facebook. So far it has received 7,600 reactions and had been shared more than 12,000 times at the time of filing the report.The Kolkata Police later tweeted and wrote, “We have taken this incident very seriously and seven persons have been arrested so far. On the order of the Commissioner of Police, Kolkata, an inquiry regarding the non-registration of FIR has been initiated into this incident, at a very senior level.”last_img read more


first_img Popular on Variety UPDATED WASHINGTON — Netflix has joined the Motion Picture Association of America, a move that reflects its evolution as a major player in the movie business.The MPAA currently has six major studios as members, and it collected about $38 million in membership dues in 2017, according to its most recent filing with the IRS. But it faces the loss of one of the legacy studio members, Twentieth Century Fox, after the merger of many of its assets with Disney is completed.“On behalf of the MPAA and its member companies, I am delighted to welcome Netflix as a partner,” MPAA chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin said in a statement. “All of our members are committed to pushing the film and television industry forward, in both how we tell stories and how we reach audiences. Adding Netflix will allow us to even more effectively advocate for the global community of creative storytellers, and I look forward to seeing what we can all achieve together.” Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix, said, “Joining the Motion Picture Association further exemplifies our commitment to ensuring the vibrancy of these creative industries and the many talented people who work in them all over the world.”The streaming giant received its first best picture Oscar nomination on Tuesday for “Roma.”Netflix would be the first internet company, with its origins in Silicon Valley, to join the MPAA.With the growth of streaming services and other content businesses, the MPAA has in recent years faced questions of whether it should expand its membership. According to sources, there has been some disagreement among the board members as to whether to take such a step.While the tech industry has often been at odds with the MPAA on issues like copyright and trade, their sentiments could start to align as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon and Apple make greater investments in content, and as major media companies The Walt Disney Co., WarnerMedia and NBCUniversal prepare to launch their own subscription streaming services.As it has expanded production, Netflix has found many of its policy concerns in sync with those of other content firms.In 2017, Netflix and Amazon joined with studios in the formation of a global anti-piracy coalition, the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment. The group has pursued legal action against piracy sites.It recently left another trade association, the Internet Association, which represents many tech giants like Google, Amazon, Snap and Facebook. Netflix had been a champion for the FCC to pass a robust set of net neutrality rules in 2015, but those were overturned when Republicans gained control of the commission two years later. The MPAA has largely stayed out of the net neutrality debate.The MPAA reported total revenue of $71.7 million in 2017, the bulk of it collected through membership dues, film rating service fees and title registration. It ended the year with a $4.4 million surplus.The amount it has collected in membership dues has dropped in recent years, from about $65 million in 2014 and 2015, to $38 million in the most recent year, according to the IRS filings.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

first_imgMicrosoft has just finished up its Xbox One E3 event and announced some pretty compelling exclusive games. I say exclusive, but that doesn’t necessarily mean exclusive forever. Microsoft also included one game that’s already been released and has just been updated for the Xbox One. Does that count? According to Microsoft it certainly does.The full line-up of games announced during the event includes:Battlefield 4 (arriving first on Xbox One)Crimson DragonDead Rising 3Forza 5HaloKiller InstinctMax the Curse of BrotherhoodMetal Gear Solid V: The Phantom PainMinecraft: Xbox One EditionProject SparkQuantum BreakRyse: Son of RomeSunset OverdriveThe Witcher 3: Wild HuntTitanfallBelowWorld of TanksThat’s a pretty healthy line-up of titles, some of which will be available at launch, but no firm dates have been given for each game.Once the games announcements were over Microsoft moved on to talk about price and release windows. You can expect to see the Xbox One hit store shelves at some point in November, and a pre-order program will be in place at your favorite games retailer. As for the price, it’s going to cost $499, 499 Euros, or £429 depending on where you are in the world. (Xbox One pre-orders are available now.)The question is, will anybody be willing to pay that?You can pick up an Xbox 360 for $280 and a PS3 for $300, meaning the Xbox One carries a $200 premium. If the economy was the same as when the PS3 came out, that would probably still be grumbled about but accepted nonetheless, and lets not forget the PS3 cost $600. But money is much tighter for people right now, and that $200 price difference looks much bigger. Also consider that just gets you the console, with games likely to cost $60 each on top of that, plus the cost of the broadband connection you need in order to continue using the console.When Sony discusses the PS4 later today they may also announce a $499 price point and it will cause the same question to be asked. Is that affordable right now?You also have to consider both machines are basically specialized PCs with the major components being provided from a single source: AMD. It’s debatable whether Microsoft is making a loss per console sale, but even if they are it’s going to be very small meaning they probably could have set a cheaper launch price.So, come November will you be queuing up with $500 plus at least another $60 for a game? Or is the redesigned Xbox 360 looking like the console to have under the tree this Christmas?last_img read more

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Later Saturday, a separate protest by another far-right group was held in front of the EU headquarters.Even liberal Serbs have warned that Friday’s ruling created a sense of injustice and could stir nationalist sentiments. Serbia’s government has scaled down cooperation with the tribunal, while Serbia’s President Tomislav Nikolic said the verdict was political.Dacic insisted “this verdict was clearly political … designed to clear Croatia of crimes committed against Serbs.”Serbian media on Friday and Saturday repeatedly carried file footages of tens of thousands of Croatian Serb refugees fleeing in August 1995 in long columns on tractors, cars and carts. Many still have not returned to their homes.In Croatia, the two generals received state honors and a hero’s welcome on Friday, with tens of thousands jubilant people gathering in the capital, Zagreb, to greet them.The country is also marking a remembrance day this weekend in the eastern town of Vukovar, which was heavily bombed by the Serb-led military in at the start of the Serb-Croat war in 1991.The war erupted when Croatia declared independence from Serb-led Yugoslavia triggering a rebellion by minority Serbs. About 10,000 people died in the conflict. “This will have serious consequences at reconciliation in the region,” Serbia’s premier Ivica Dacic said. “How can someone demand that we condemn all crimes if others are allowed not to condemn the crimes against Serbs?”Croatians, meanwhile, consider the decision proof that they were the victims in the Balkan conflict. The fighting in Croatia was part of the wars that erupted across the Balkans with the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. The most deadly was in Bosnia, where Serbs battled Muslims and Croats in a four-year struggle that claimed some 100,000 lives.Hundreds of supporters of the extremist Serbian Radical Party rallied in front of the presidency building in the center of Belgrade demanding that the government abandon plans to join the 27-nation European Union and cut ties with the court in The Hague, Netherlands.The crowd carried banners reading “Stop The Hague” and chanted nationalist slogans in support of the party leader, Vojislav Seselj, whose own trial is ongoing at the tribunal for the role in the atrocities against non-Serbs.“Serbia has done nothing to help its own heroes who are jailed in The Hague,” said Radical Party official Nemanja Sarovic.last_img read more


first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The Cardinals have been linked to Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson and Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher via mock draft. On the flip side, Arizona is reportedly interested in LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo and Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan.Keim said he’s encouraged by the options available on both sides of the ball.“We’ve both been pleasantly surprised with the linemen,” Keim said. “There’s a significant amount of safeties and corners that we feel are going to be pretty solid players. I think it’s like anything else, evaluate the evaluator. Sometimes people get excited about a certain skill set and a certain type of player.“We feel pretty good about this draft. We think that at every pick whether it’s one through seven, we’re going to get a guy that can come in and help us and contribute.”Cardinals’ head coach Bruce Arians echoed his GM’s sentiments about the depth of this year’s crop of talent. He also said emphatically how critical it is to find offensive linemen, which may shed some more light on the Cardinals’ potential philosophy come draft day.“As the defensive pass rushers have gotten so much more athletic, the priority to have somebody to block them has finally got to where it belongs, and some teams still don’t value ‘hey we can get offensive linemen,’” Arians said. “Good luck.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arians said there has also been a shift in the draft in recent years that supports his belief that taking offensive or defensive linemen are just as important, if not more important, than selecting the prototypical eye-popping talent.“There’s been a big sway in value in the last eight years,” Arians stated. “You never saw offensive linemen going in the top six picks. It was running backs, receivers, glory players, quarterbacks. Now there’s such a value on both sides of the ball so in the last few years you are seeing a ton of offensive linemen and defensive linemen drafted in the first round because people are having success in the lower rounds getting good backs and finding wide receivers. So there’s been a nice change in philosophies over the last few years and you got to stay up with that kind of thing too.” – / 16 Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals officials are feeling good about the depth of this year’s NFL draft, and their chances of grabbing an elite player with the seventh overall pick.Cardinals’ GM Steve Keim said the team made sure to address all of their needs this offseason through free agency, so they’ll be able to draft the best player available regardless of position.“I think there’s always positions you like to get but I wouldn’t say you need to. I think that’s what free agency is for,” Keim said. “We talked about our philosophy and that’s shopping for your groceries in free agency and grabbing the best players in the draft. I think we positioned ourselves pretty well over the past few months where we can be selective on what positions we need to go for in the draft and the decisions we need to make. We feel pretty confident that the way our board is going to be set that in our minds the best player available is going to be the one taken.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Paphos Criminal Court on Thursday sentenced 35-year-old Demetris Ilidzides to two and a half years in prison for causing the death of father-of-two Robert James (Charlie) Birch, 39, through reckless driving last year in Peyia.He was also sentenced to one year in prison for injuring Birch’s friend. Both sentences will run concurrently. The court also ordered that his driving licence be revoked for a year.The court said the fact the defendant was under the influence of alcohol was not a mitigating factor but that it took into consideration that he immediately admitted to the offences. His clean criminal record was also taken into account.The Georgian national was initially charged with premeditated murder, which he denied. He pleaded not guilty again in January after the charge was downgraded to manslaughter, claiming he hit the two men by accident.Ilidzides admitted earlier in the month to causing death through reckless driving without deceit, and culpable negligence, injuring Birch’s friend, 32, and abandoning the scene, after prosecutors withdrew manslaughter and attempted murder charges.It was the second time since Ilidzides’ trial started in September last year that prosecutors amended charges in a case which is widely believed to have been a deliberate assault following an earlier altercation.Ilidzides’ lawyer tried to secure a suspended sentence during mitigation, arguing among other things that his client was drunk during the incident and that this had a taken a toll on his concentration, perception and assessment of danger.The court on Thursday said Ilidzides’ defence lawyer also said in his mitigation arguments that the accused was a law-abiding person and a father of three children aged 11,13 and 14 and that since his imprisonment in June 2018, his family has been experiencing many financial difficulties. Ilidzides’ wife is a Russian Pontian who does not speak Greek well and was left to fend for herself after her husband’s arrest since she has no help from anyone to care for her children.The lawyer said that the family was solely financially reliant on the 35-year-old’s wages as a construction worker.After Ilidzides was arrested, due to the financial problems faced by the family, his wife was forced to discontinue her cooperation with a teacher who helped children with their school work, the lawyer said.He also said his client immediately admitted to the charges following amendment and that this stemmed from real remorse.The incident took place in the morning hours of Sunday, June 24, 2018.At around 2.30am police were notified that two men, pedestrians, were lying injured on the ground along the Peyia-Ayios Georghios road. On arriving at the scene, officers found the 39-year-old lying dead on the ground. Next to him was his friend who had been injured. The two men were on holiday in Cyprus at the time. Birch’s friend later told the media he believes the driver deliberately ran them down. Birch was a father of two.Before the incident, there had been an altercation at a bar in Coral Bay during which the two Britons reportedly tried to defend a woman – his girlfriend 23 – who was allegedly being abused by Ilidzides. She was not charged in the case.The car they were both in was later found abandoned at the Ayios Georghios harbour. It was in the sea and had to be pulled out by the fire service.The pair had left the harbour on foot and were picked up on the road shortly afterwards by police.  Police had suspected that dumping the car in the sea was an attempt to conceal evidence.last_img read more
