MOSCOW (AP) — Tens of thousands of people have protested across Russia to demand the release of jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny in a wave of nationwide demonstrations that have rattled the Kremlin. Many chanted slogans against President Vladimir Putin. Activists say police detained more than 5,100 protesters across the country on Sunday, including over 1,600 in Moscow. The authorities mounted a massive effort to stem the tide of demonstrations after tens of thousands rallied last weekend in the most widespread show of discontent Russia has seen in years. Navalny, an anti-corruption activist, is Putin’s most well-known critic. The United States urged Russia to release him and criticized the crackdown against protesters.
Ireland have won three medals in what’s been a brilliant morning at the European Rowing Championships in the Czech Republic.Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll secured a gold medal with a fantastic performance in the men’s lightweight pairs final.The Skibbereen duo started in lane 1 and pulled away after taking the lead at the 600 metre mark. Just moments later their clubmate Denise Walsh went on to win a silver medal in the women’s lightweight single skulls.Walsh was fourth after 1000 metres but a brilliant finish saw her claim second spot.And then Gary and Paul O’Donovan made it a hat-trick of medals for the Skibbereen club when they won a silver medal in the men’s lightweight double skulls.The brothers were out of the medal contention for much of the race before their trademark strong finish gave them second place by just half a second.
Amazon is joining other retailers in banning paint strippers containing chemicals that have been linked to dozens of deaths. In a policy that becomes effective next March, the retailing giant said it will prohibit the listing or sale of strippers that contain methylene chloride or n-methylpyrrolidone (NMP). Companies selling paint removal products through Amazon must provide documentation that confirms the strippers do not contain either of the two chemicals. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency hasn’t banned them, but the chemicals have been linked to dozens of accidental deaths, according to a report in The New York Times.RELATED ARTICLESGetting Dangerous Paint Strippers Off the ShelvesThe Takeover of the EPAManaging Lead Paint HazardsEPA Ordered to Speed Up New Lead Rule The EPA hasn’t acted on an Obama administration proposal to ban strippers containing the chemicals, but a growing number of U.S. retailers have been taking steps of their own. Lowe’s announced in May that it would no longer sell paint strippers with those chemicals, including such brands as Klean Strip, Goof Off, and Jasco. According to the advocacy group “Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families,” Amazon becomes the 11th major retailer to ban these chemicals, following similar moves by Sherwin-Williams, The Home Depot, Walmart, True Value, PPG Paints and AutoZone. “We applaud Amazon for prohibiting the sale of these harmful products,” Mike Schade, Mind the Store campaign director of Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, said in a statement posted at the organization’s website. “While Amazon, Lowe’s and other retailers have stepped up, the EPA has dragged its feet and consumers have suffered. The time for EPA inaction is over. How many more people have to die before the Trump EPA finalizes this long-delayed ban?” Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families said Amazon’s announcement follows a campaign it launched in 2017 by to phase out the sale of dangerous paint strippers. With partners including the Natural Resources Defense Council, the group organized online petitions that have been signed by hundreds of thousands of consumers and is now pushing Ace Hardware to follow suit. That petition has been signed by nearly 150,000 people. Health advocates say there’s no practical reason why paint strippers have to include those chemicals. Consumers and contractors in the European Union have been able to buy strippers without methylene chloride for more than five years. According to Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, the EPA shelved its plans for a ban on methylene chloride shortly after Scott Pruitt took over the department as administrator. Last May, Pruitt met with families of some victims of methylene chloride exposure, and the EPA announced shortly after that it would finalize its rule on the chemical “shortly,” the group said. But details have yet to be announced, and the agency has taken no action on the chemical NMP. The mothers of two men killed by exposure to methylene chloride announced in October they would sue the EPA for its failure to pull the chemical from the market, the Associated Press reported.
BERLIN — Jamel McLean’s score at the buzzer gave Alba Berlin a 94-93 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Oct. 8, handing the NBA champion a dramatic defeat in its first preseason game.The American forward contributed 18 points for the eight-time German champion, which rallied after a slow start by winning all but the first quarter.Tony Parker scored 28 for the Spurs, with Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard finishing on 14 apiece. Duncan who is entering his 18th season, had 10 rebounds.Alex King opened the scoring with a 3-pointer for the hosts, but the Spurs replied instantly through Parker and quickly carved out a 16-point lead. Alba fought back, however, and clinched it through McLean’s buzzer beater.“First game of the season and we’re all a little rusty. We need to play with each other a bit more,” Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili said. “We just played poorly and they had a great game.”While the Spurs Coyote entertained fans on the side, Lady Gaga was courtside, too, leading to a large security presence for the American entertainer.Parker received great applause before tip-off when he was presented with his 2013 FIBA Europe Player of the Year award. Parker led the Spurs to the 2013 NBA Finals and France to its maiden EuroBasket success in Slovenia.The French guard quickly showed his class and became the game’s dominating figure, helped by the home side’s nerves in the first quarter, which ended 26-18 in favor of the visitors.Alba fought back to go ahead in the second quarter before Danny Green restored the visitors’ lead with a 3-pointer. Spurs led 54-47 at halftime and 75-73 at the end of the third quarter.“We just kept fighting and we realized we had a chance to win the game,” McLean said.The real drama came at the end. Reggie Redding’s 3-pointer for Alba made it a one-point game, bringing the 14,500-strong crowd to its feet with 5.1 seconds remaining. It was all McLean needed to win it for the German runners-up.“I just got the ball from Leon (Radosevic) and I looked at the clock and knew I had to get a play in. I did a couple of juggles and got a prayer in,” McLean said. “I saw it go in. It felt really good. I didn’t know how to celebrate.”Alba’s Serbian coach Sasa Obradovic described the victory as “one of the biggest wins of a European team.” Obradovic said there was a bit of trepidation when he saw the Spurs’ training on Oct. 6.“They were jumping higher, doing better things with the ball. I was a bit disappointed with my own training session,” he said, before acknowledging motivation had not been a problem: “You don’t need extra motivation to play the best players in the world.”The Spurs’ next game on the NBA Global Games tour is Oct. 11 at six-time Turkish champion Fenerbahce in Istanbul. The team then returns to face the Phoenix Suns in Phoenix on Oct. 16.The Spurs’ first game of the regular season is at home against the Dallas Mavericks on Oct. 28, as it attempts to win consecutive titles for the first time in franchise history.(CIARAN FAHEY)TweetPinShare0 Shares
About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool legend Carragher adamant they can win leagueby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend Jamie Carragher is convinced his old club can win the Premier League title this season.Carragher told Sky Sports that they are now looking like champions in the making.”City, in the last 18 months, have just gone away from everyone,” he said. “There was no real challenge last season. It felt like the season was over at this stage last season.”The fact Liverpool are with them now it maybe asks questions of this Man City side that we haven’t seen before.”I’m sure they’ll answer them, I’m not questioning them in that way, but I think it’s nice we have someone chasing this City side.”This City side is a special side, and I think over the next four or five years we will be speaking about a special team in this Premier League era. But could a side win the league three or four years on the bounce?”The great Manchester United sides found that difficult. There’s always someone who wins the league out of nowhere. Could this be the season when someone else actually wins it, and could it be Liverpool.”Liverpool can win the league.”
zoom Owner and operator of LNG carriers Dynagas LNG Partners has secured more work for two of its LNG carriers, Arctic Aurora and Clean Energy.The company entered into a new three-year charter agreement with Statoil for the employment of the 2013-built Arctic Aurora.

New Delhi: With its huge campus and large auditoriums, the Jamia Millia Islamia is increasingly becoming a favourite option for filmmakers to shoot their projects. While the Delhi University continues to be a favourite with Bollywood, the filmmakers say they usually avoid going to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) as securing permissions there is a tedious process. According to sources, the reason behind the JMI opening its doors for shoots can also be attributed to fund cuts by the government. Also Read – Gurdwara Bangla Sahib bans single use plastic They said the varsity administration has become lenient with shoots and that has helped the filmmakers. Professor Majid Jamil, the secretary of Jamia Teachers’ Association, said the varieties have been asked to generate their own funds and efforts are underway to generate own fund resources. “For the last two years, the varsity has been facing issues in paying salaries of teachers. The varsity had to even break its fixed deposits to pay the salaries of teachers. Every university is facing these issues and most of the research and development activities are being hampered,” he added. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder The grand finale of ‘Bigg Boss 12’ was shot in one of the auditoriums of JMI, while a film titled ‘Doordarshan’ starring Mahie Gill was recently shot in the campus. An advertisement of Subway India was also shot in one of the classrooms of the varsity where the makers spent close to Rs 2-2.5 lakh in renovating the classroom according to their requirement, the sources said. Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali recently visited the campus for a recce for his film ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’ since he wanted to shoot a scene in a science laboratory but since the varsity’s lab did not fit his requirements, he will now be shooting that particular portion in Mumbai, the sources added. The varsity will soon play host to Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Panga’, the sources said. A Malayalam film was also recently shot in the campus. “The campus of JMI is huge and we do not have to worry about procuring additional security as we can shoot without worrying about our actors getting mobbed. The varsity has a strong security in place,” said Line Producer Javed Khan. He secured permission for shooting the film ‘Doorsdarshan’ and also the commercial for Subway India. Khan said the varsity provides several options through its auditoriums, classrooms and lawns. “Every centre of the varsity has a different look. We can even recreate government offices in the varsity,” he added. While Khan did not talk about the rates charged by the varsity, he said the JMI offers an economical option for shoots. He said the Delhi University is more expensive than the JMI. The sources claimed that shooting in the JMI costs Rs 50,000 per day and the varsity gives concession if the film has a social message. The Delhi University, with its ambience, despite the high rates has been a favourite with Bollywood. Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ was recently shot in Miranda House while Amazon Prime’s web series ‘Breathe 2’ featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Amit Sadh was shot in Kirori Mal College, the sources said. “In the Delhi University, one mostly has to shoot during vacation time as there is always a threat of the actors getting mobbed but if there is an urgent requirement, the colleges give permission even on working days,” said Line Producer Navmeet Singh. Singh said colleges like Kirori Mal, Hansraj and Miranda House are quite open for allowing shoots while it is difficult to procure permission to shoot in the St Stephen’s College. The sources said the cost of shooting in Kirori Mal college, Hansraj college and Miranda House is anywhere between Rs 2-2.5 lakh. Arjun Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Half Girlfriend’ was shot in the St Stephen’s College and the sources claimed that the makers had to shell out Rs 3 lakh for each day they shot in the college. The sources claimed that the JNU is not very open to the idea of film shoots and even filmmakers prefer to stay away from shooting there. “We have applied for permission to the JNU earlier but have not got a response. The perception of the varsity is that it is very political and filmmakers prefer to stay away from shooting there,” said Singh. Even for the film ‘Raanjhana’, in which Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol played JNU students, the varsity was recreated in some other university in Noida.
