JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD — Two Americans released from captivity in North Korea returned to the United States on Saturday night, landing at a Washington military base after their departure was secured through a secret mission to the reclusive Communist country by the top U.S. intelligence official. Matthew Miller of Bakersfield, Calif., and Kenneth Bae of Lynnwood arrived at Joint Base Lewis-McChord around 9 p.m. U.S. officials said the pair flew back with James Clapper, the director of national intelligence. Bae, surrounded by family members, spoke briefly to the media after the plane carrying him and Miller landed.“I just want to say thank you all for supporting me and standing by me,” he said. Bae thanked President Barack Obama and the many people who supported him and his family. He also thanked the North Korean government for releasing him.“It’s been an amazing two years, I learned a lot, I grew a lot, I lost a lot of weight,” said Bae, a Korean-American missionary with health problems. Asked how he was feeling, he said: “I’m recovering at this time.”His family has said he suffers from diabetes, an enlarged heart, liver problems and back pain, Members of Bae’s family, who live near the sprawling military base south of Seattle, met him when he landed. His mother hugged him after he got off the plane. Miller stepped off the U.S. government aircraft a short time later and was also greeted with hugs.
In line with its tech roots, Oyster’s magazine is building in calls-to-action and personalization features alongside its content.”Kevin will lead new editorial initiatives and build out a new content brand uniquely developed for our product and readers,” Willem Van Lancker, Oyster’s chief product officer, wrote at the time of Nguyen’s hiring. “We believe the best product lies in the pairing of high-quality editorial with our work in personalization, data science, and design.”Literary criticism is a crowded space, but with each site focusing on unpacking its own offerings—Scribner will primarily cover authors and books published by Scribner; The Oyster Review will write about books available through its parent company’s service—advertising and scale aren’t necessarily the goals.Instead, Scribner and Oyster are investing in themselves, using magazines as additional entry points for potential consumers—probably a good place to start with book nerds. Two book companies from different ends of the spectrum are now using magazines to promote themselves. The 168-year-old book publisher, Scribner, and Oyster, the buzzy Netflix-for-books startup, each launched content marketing efforts in the form of digital literary magazines this week.The former’s is actually a relaunch, of sorts—the original Scribner’s Magazine was published from 1887 until 1939. Its new iteration, Scribner Magazine, will be getting digital-only treatment though, publishing criticism, reviews and essays on a weekly basis instead of original fiction and nonfiction works in a monthly print magazine, like its predecessor.”What do you read? How do you write? What’s the origin of the book?…We’re trying to respond to that appetite,” Nan Graham, the company’s SVP and publisher, tells the Wall Street Journal. “I’ve wanted to do something with the old Scribner’s Magazine for a long time because it was such an important part of the culture.”Oyster is going in a similar direction with the launch of The Oyster Review. The company, which lets readers pick from a digital library of 500,000 titles for a monthly fee, hired Kevin Nguyen, a former books editor for Amazon, as editorial director for the project in September. Like Scribner, Nguyen and his team will be offering up criticism, culture, essays and other content about books.

COPY LINKAD Loading … A video of an eight-foot-long crocodile that was spotted emerging from open drains along the road in a tourist spot in Maharashtra has gone viral.The appearance of the reptile caused quite a panic in the tourist resort of Chiplun in Dadar area near Ratnagiri. The incident reportedly took place on Friday, July 26. It was suspected that the crocodile could have entered the drains during the heavy downpour Ratnagiri received on Friday. The rains caused the flooding of the Vashisht River, which originates in the region.”This is quite common in this region during the monsoon. We rescued this crocodile safely. Since it had not suffered any injuries, it was released back into the river,” Divisional Forest Officer V. K. Surve was quoted as saying by IANS.Many on social media thought the incident had taken place in suburban Mumbai but officials were quick to confirm that the location was Ratnagiri and not Mumbai’s Dadar.”I have been barged with calls… I have said it’s the Dadar area of Chiplun and not the Dadar of Mumbai,” Surve said.He added that such incidents are common in the region during the rainy season. “Such spotting of reptiles is not uncommon in the monsoon. Following heavy rainfall, we receive many calls of animals and reptiles rescue,” Surve was quoted as saying by Indian Express. Officials from the forest department rescued the crocodile and released it to its natural habitat. Surve reassured that the animal was not harmed in any way during the rescue and release operation.
Jatiya Party chairman and ex-president Hussain Muhammad Ershad was finally laid to eternal rest on Tuesday at Polli Nibash in his hometown Rangpur where he was the most admirable political figure for over three decades. Photo: UNBJatiya Party chairman and ex-president Hussain Muhammad Ershad was finally laid to eternal rest on Tuesday at Polli Nibash in his hometown Rangpur where he was the most admirable political figure for over three decades, reports UNB.The former military strongman who ruled the country for nine years was buried at the grave dug by his party followers at the Litchi Orchard of his Polli Nibash around 5:53pm as Jatiya Party was forced to revise its decision of burying him at Military Graveyard in the capital due to rigid stance of party followers in Rangpur.Huge army personnel took position around the prepared grave before the burial to maintain discipline as thousands of people gathered there to bid farewell to their beloved leader.Military men carried ex-army chief Ershad’s coffin, draped in an army flag, to near the grave around 5:35pm. Later, a life sketch of the Jatiya Party chairman was read out before observing a one-minute silence showing tributes to him.Army personnel supervised the burial process in presence of liberation war affairs minister AKM Mozammel Huq, Jatiya Party acting chairman and Ershad’s brother GM Quader, his relatives and party senior leaders.After his fourth and final namaz-e-janaza in Rangpur, Jatiya Party issued a statement that Ershad would be buried in Rangpur.Showing respect for the love of people of Rangpur for her husband and Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad, the party statement said Raushan Ershad gave permission to bury him at Polli Nibash.She also made a request to keep aside a place beside Ershad’s grave so that she can be buried there after her demise, it said.”It’s not possible to ignore the love and affection of the mass people of Rangpur for former president HM Ershad. So, the decision to bury him in Rangpur was taken considering the love and sentiment of the people of Rangpur,” the statement reads.Earlier, the fourth and final namaz-e-janaza of Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad was held at Central Collectorate Eidgah in Rangpur around 2:28pm with the participation of thousands of people.Huge law enforcers were deployed in and around the Eidgah to fend off any untoward incident as local leaders announced to thwart party senior leader’s plan to bury Ershad at Military Graveyard in the capital instead of Rangpur.On Sunday, Jatiya Party secretary general Moshiur Rahman Ranga announced that their chairperson will be buried at the military graveyard in the capital.Protesting the decision, Jatiya party’s Rangpur and Rajshahi units held a joint meeting at the party’s Rangpur city unit office on Monday and decided to bury Ershad in Rangpur at any cost. They later prepared a grave at Polli Nibash.Earlier in the morning, the body of Ershad, who passed away in the capital on Sunday morning, was brought to Rangpur for the janaza.A helicopter of Bangladesh Air Force carrying the coffin of the Jatiya Party chief landed at Rangpur Cantonment around 11:30am.Jatiya Party acting chairman GM Guader, secretary general Moshiur Rahman Ranga, former secretary general Ruhul Amin Hawlader and Ershad’s son Rahgir Al Mahi Shad Ershad, among others, accompanied the body.Ershad, the leader of the opposition in parliament and five-time MP, breathed his last at 7:45am on Sunday while undergoing treatment at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Dhaka.His first janaza was held at the Army Central Mosque in Dhaka on Sunday while two other janazas were held in the capital on Monday.Ershad’s qulkhwani will be held on Wednesday at Gulshan’s Azad mosque in Dhaka.The deposed military dictator had been shuttling between his home and hospital for the last few months as his health condition deteriorated.He was admitted to the CMH on 26 June as he had been suffering from various old-age complications, including low haemoglobin, kidney and liver problem, high bilirubin and serious keen pain.

The Ward 8 Democrats held a debate on affordable housing and whether home-sharing is beneficial for District of Columbia residents. The debate, “Affordable Housing vs. Airbnb” was held at the St. Elizabeths East R.I.S.E. Demonstration Center May 20.Will Burns, the public policy director for Airbnb, sat on a panel discussing affordable housing in relation to home-sharing. (Courtesy Photo)Panelists included Will Burns, public policy director for home-sharing behemoth Airbnb; Synta Keeling, a Ward 7 host for Airbnb; Desmond Surrette, deputy political director of Local 25 UNITE HERE representing 6,500 hospitality workers in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area; Jim McCrath, founder of tenant advocate organization TENAC, and Charles Leocha, founder and president of advocacy group Travelers United.The primary issue was “The Short Term Rental Regulation and Affordable Housing Protection Act of 2017.” This legislation, authored by D.C. Council member Kenyan McDuffie (D-Ward 5), makes it illegal for District property owners to post multiple addresses for short-term rentals and would cut the number of days a homeowner could rent a property from an unlimited amount of time to 15 days per year.Additionally, the bill wouldn’t restrict those who rents out a basement apartment or rooms within their primary residence, or homeowners doing business with Airbnb. Firms like Airbnb would have to be licensed and regulated.Burns said Airbnb is a good corporate neighbor in the District and not just here to make money. “We are committed to paying our taxes,” he said. “Airbnb is good for the city because home sharers on average earn $5,800 a year in extra income. I believe that we should be regulated and there should be a cap on the number of nights that Airbnb uses and the hosts should be licensed.”Burns is skeptical about McDuffie’s bill because it would cause undue regulations on the hosts and impede his company’s growth in the city.Synta Keeling is an Airbnb host in Ward 7, with her residence in the Capitol View/Marshall Heights section. Keeling said her experiences as a host have been positive and Airbnb should be given a chance to flourish. “Hosts are sharing a part of our houses and we should get to do it year-round,” Keeling said. “What we do really helps because there are no hotels in Wards 7 or 8 and we provide a service. Being a host is a great way to supplement income and it really helps because I am a government attorney and I am away sometimes and somebody in the house while I’m [gone] is a benefit.”Surrette made it clear that Airbnb and other home-sharing companies shouldn’t have a free pass from the District government. “We don’t want to ban home-sharing in the city but the city should regulate short-term rentals,” he said. “What does this mean for residents of Ward 8? We don’t want a situation where available housing units are used by Airbnb to make money and not house people.”+He made it clear Local 25 supports homeowners who rent out rooms but said, “The city needs clearer laws on home-sharing.”McGrath was blunt in his assessment of the District’s housing situation and of Airbnb. “There is no affordable housing in this city,” he said. “It is tough for homeless people and middle-income people to live in this city. There are some people who want to make Washington, D.C. another Beverly Hills or Boca Raton.”Former D.C. Council member LaRuby May requested Surrette work with Ward 8 leaders to get a hotel in the ward. He agreed to that, tentatively.According to Curbed, a District real estate market publication, Wards 7 and 8 Airbnb outlets increased 95 percent over the previous year and guest arrivals increased by 165 percent.Leocha supports Airbnb in the city but is aware of the high costs of housing in the District. He said the short-term rental market in the District is a positive and should be supported. “If there is an attempt to curtail the short-term rental market the winner will be the hotel industry in Washington,” Leocha said. “Washington, D.C. is becoming known as a city for short-term renters, whether they are in the military, in government, and in corporate America on a short-term assignment.”The people who attended the debate were largely quiet and seemed to try to digest the issues. Pho Palmer, a political and civic activist in the ward, seemed sympathetic to Airbnb. “There are no hotels east of the [Anacostia] River,” she said. “Airbnb could help increase incomes east of the River with business opportunities.”
There’s no shortage of video game expos out there. From the now-public E3 to the Game Developers Conference to various regional Penny Arcade Expos to the academic exhibits at museums and universities, if you want to go see some cool games and speakers you have options.In fact, there’s a new video game show coming to New York City you can buy tickets for right now, and the name might sound familiar. The inaugural Tribeca Games Festival kicks off Friday, April 28.Since 2002, the Tribeca Film Festival has brought exciting new movies, high-profile members of the international film community, and hundreds of millions of dollars to the Lower Manhattan Tribeca neighborhood. The Tribeca Games Festival, through its partnership with New York video game culture mainstay Kill Screen, wants to do the same thing but for that wonderful intersection of entertainment and technology, we call video games.Headlining this first festival are industry luminaries like Metal Gear’s Hideo Kojima, BioShock’s Ken Levine, and Max Payne’s creator/face model Sam Lake. Festival-goers can watch talks about Overwatch, Firewatch, Watch Dogs, and presumably something else watch-related. Telltale is hosting a crowd-play of its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy adventure game.Figures from outside the world of gaming will join developers to talk about the best games of last year as well as what’s on the horizon. And since this is part of a film festival, there will be a special 25th-anniversary celebration of the virtual reality cinematic masterpiece The Lawnmower Man. Expect all this and even more (like a Mura Masa concert) the closer we get to the festival.“Tribeca was the first film festival to welcome gaming to the official program,” said Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and Executive Chair of the Tribeca Film Festival in a statement. “Since then, we’ve continued to support the storytellers who have propelled it to become the world’s most popular and growing medium.”The Tribeca Games Festival runs from April 28-29 as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 19-30. The event is open to the public and tickets are available now starting at $40.

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Tech giant Samsung Electronics Co Ltd likely saw January-March earnings slip for the sixth straight quarter, but investors are betting on a rebound this year on healthy chip sales and high hopes for its new flagship smartphones.Shares in South Korea-based Samsung hit a more-than 21 month high in mid-March as brokerages raised profit forecasts and target prices on its improving business outlook. The stock rose 8.6 percent in January-March following a 12.1 percent gain in the previous period.Investors believe the Galaxy S6 and its curved-edges variant will sell briskly when they roll out this month following positive reviews, and analysts say new mid-tier phones will boost sales, adding to expectations that the earnings slide in its handset business is ending.The recovery is also expected to be backed by strong semiconductor sales. In addition to healthy memory chip demand, Samsung’s system chips business is seen returning to profit this year. Its home-grown Exynos processor will power the new Galaxy phones, and Samsung recently added Nvidia Corp as a contract manufacturing client.”This is a year of recovery for Samsung,” said fund manager Park Sung-jae at LS Asset Management, which holds Samsung shares. “The stock price reflects that sentiment.”To be sure, recovery is expected to be gradual and well shy of record profits in 2013. The median forecast from a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S survey of 41 analysts tips first-quarter operating profit at 5.3 trillion won ($4.82 billion), down 38 percent from 8.5 trillion won a year earlier as mobile earnings weakened.The company will release its first-quarter earnings guidance on Tuesday.But analysts say the underlying figures should show meaningful improvements, with momentum to pick up further once the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge roll out globally. BNP Paribas analyst Peter Yu expects Samsung to ship 44 million of the new phones this year, compared with an estimated 38 million units of the disappointing Galaxy S5 last year.For the whole year, a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S survey of 51 analysts expects profits to rise to 26.5 trillion won from 25 trillion won in 2014 – a reversal from the prevailing consensus early this year for another earnings slide.”We believe Samsung’s smartphone operations are in a full recovery phase,” Yu said in a note to clients last week, adding that there was an earnings upside of up to $1.5 billion to his 2015 profit forecast of 28.1 trillion won because of the new flagship devices.($1 = 1,098.9200 won)(Editing by Tony Munroe and Stephen Coates) Register Now »

Top Stories Francis is to address lawmakers in September in the first speech by a pope to Congress.Francis enjoyed a 70 percent popularity rating in a poll by the Pew Research Center earlier this year; Congress, by contrast, routinely polls in the teens.Yet despite his status as an exalted spiritual figure and leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, his pronouncements on climate were received much as a presidential address might be: with enthusiastic embraces from those who already agreed with him, and disavowals or silence from most everyone else.President Barack Obama fell into the former category. “I welcome His Holiness Pope Francis’s encyclical, and deeply admire the pope’s decision to make the case — clearly, powerfully, and with the full moral authority of his position — for action on global climate change,” the president said in a statement.The Republicans vying to replace Obama were not so full-throated. A number of them, including Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, did not respond to requests for comment or avoided answering when questioned by reporters on the topic.Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush questioned the pope’s foray into climate science when discussing the issue Wednesday ahead of the encyclical’s release. 5 ways to recognize low testosterone And it was one that most Republicans did not particularly welcome.“I think the pope needs to continue to study this,” said Sen.

Pope Francis’ call for dramatic action on climate change drew a round of shrugs from congressional Republicans on Thursday, while many of the party’s presidential candidates ignored it entirely. Boehner, a Catholic who invited the pontiff to address Congress later this year, said the pope is not afraid to challenge thinking on various issues. “I respect his right to speak out on these important issues,” Boehner said, but he demurred when asked whether Francis’ views, made public in an encyclical released Thursday, might spur legislative action by the Republicans who run Congress. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File) WASHINGTON (AP) — Pope Francis’ call for dramatic action on climate change drew a round of shrugs from congressional Republicans, while a number of the party’s presidential candidates ignored it entirely.“I don’t want to be disrespectful, but I don’t consider him an expert on environmental issues,” said Texas Rep. Joe Barton, a senior Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee, in a comment echoed by others in his party. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The vital role family plays in society Sponsored Stories “I don’t think we should politicize our faith,” he said.A statement from a spokesman for former Texas Gov. Rick Perry did not directly mention Francis but said, “Gov. Perry believes the climate is always changing, but it’s not clear what role humans have in it.”And an aide to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio directed reporters to comments Rubio made earlier this year seeming to question the pope’s decision to weigh in on Cuba.Rubio and Bush, who converted, both are Catholics, as are several other GOP White House hopefuls. Catholics also are overrepresented on Capitol Hill, accounting for about 30 percent of members of Congress, compared with 22 percent of American adults, according to Pew.It’s not the first time the Catholic Church’s teachings on political or social issues have created complications for Catholic lawmakers who take a different view. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California, who is Catholic, faced questions in the run-up to passage of Obama’s health care bill over her support for abortion rights in light of the church’s opposition.But with his entry into the contentious politics of climate, and his attempt to reframe the issue in moral terms, Francis opened a new chapter in the long-running debate over the intersection of politics and religion. Even Capitol Hill’s Catholic Republicans, despite their religion’s reverence for the holy father, seemed unmoved by his urgent plea to save the planet. The reactions suggested that the pontiff’s desire to translate his climate views into real action to combat greenhouse gases could fall flat, at least as far as the American political system is concerned.House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, a Catholic who invited the pontiff to address Congress later this year, said the pope is not afraid to challenge thinking on various issues. “I respect his right to speak out on these important issues,” Boehner said, but he demurred when asked whether Francis’ views, made public in an encyclical released Thursday, might spur legislative action by the Republicans who run Congress.“There’s a lot of bills out there. I’m not sure where in the process these bills may be,” Boehner said.In the encyclical, a landmark foray by the Vatican into the area of environmental policy, Francis called for a bold cultural revolution, framing climate change as an urgent moral issue and blaming global warming on an unfair, fossil fuel-based industrial model that harms the poor most. He urged people of every faith to save God’s creation for future generations. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019

YEREVAN, Armenia (AP) — Police cleared away barricades on Monday to unblock a central avenue in the Armenian capital that demonstrators had occupied for two weeks to protest hikes in electricity prices in the impoverished former Soviet nation.Police also detained 46 demonstrators who refused to disperse, but released all of them quickly.The protest organizers called on supporters to gather in the evening on nearby Freedom Square, but fewer than 1,000 turned up and they were outnumbered by police. Police have allowed demonstrations to be held on the square, where they don’t disrupt traffic, but they appeared determined to prevent the protesters from taking to the streets again.

He said an international company would conduct an audit of the Armenian power grid, a subsidiary of the Russian electricity company Inter RAO UES, and only if the rate hikes were found to be justified would they be passed on to consumers.The protesters, however, refused to remove their barricades, formed from large trash containers, and vowed to stay on the street until the government annulled the hike.
