John Downey fails in second bail application

first_imgDonegal man John Downey, who stands accused of the murder of two UDR soldiers, has had another bail application refused today.Downey appeared at Belfast Magistrates’ Court, where lawyers made the case that he would qualify for early release if he were to be convicted and handed a two-year sentence for Troubles-related offences, the Belfast Telegraph reports. However, the 67-year-old’s second application was denied, with the prosecution saying that he was unsuitable for bail. His renewed application for bail was first denied in November, when £225,000 in cash and a further £500,000 in equity was proposed as sureties.Downey, who has an address in Creeslough Co. Donegal, is charged with murdering two British soldiers in an IRA bomb attack in Enniskillen in 1972.

Qantas expects bumper annual profit of up to $A1.4 billion

first_imgAustralian carrier Qantas is predicting another bumper full-year underlying pre-tax profit of $A1.35 billion to $A1.4 billion, making it the second highest in the airline’s history.In a trading update released after the market closed, the airline said it had seen an improving performance from its domestic operations and a “slight moderation” in the challenging conditions facing it in the international market.The result compares to an underlying profit of $A1.53 billion and a net profit of $1.03 billion in 2015-16.“Last year we posted the highest earnings in Qantas’ history and our guidance today would make this year’s underlying profit the second best in almost 100 years. It shows we’re able to keep performing in a mixed global environment,” chief executive Alan Joyce said.“Between our domestic flying businesses, Qantas and Jetstar, and Loyalty we are delivering solid earnings growth.“Internationally it’s still tough, with high levels of capacity growth pushing fares down, but we’ve seen those conditions ease slightly. Because of the work we’ve done to transform Qantas and expand into growth markets, our international businesses are navigating the headwinds better than our key competitors.”Group revenue was down 1.4 per cent to $A3.96 billion in the third quarter and unit revenue was down 1.8 per cent.Domestic unit revenue rose 4.6 per cent compared to the third quarter last year as the airline reduced capacity by 3.7 per cent, including a 19 per cent reduction in the resource sector.It expects the positive trend to continue in the fourth quarter.The airline said tough conditions that have seen other airlines in the Asia-pacific record big profit falls had eased slightly in the third quarter as capacity growth in the broader market slowed.International unit revenue was down by 5.6 per cent year-on-year on a group international capacity increase of 2.2 per cent but the airline said it expected the decline to continue moderating in the fourth quarter as the capacity growth from competitors dropped from high first-half levels to around 5 per cent.“Taking this into account the Qantas Group expects to report an Underlying Profit Before Tax in the range of $1.35 billion to $1.40 billion for the financial year 2017,’’ it said.“This reflects improving performance from group domestic and Qantas Loyalty partially offsetting a relatively weaker, but resilient, group International performance in a highly competitive market.’’The airline said the guidance did not include the impact of bond rate movements which would have an adverse non-cash impact on the underlying profit of $A25 million.last_img read more

Narada tapes case: CBI court rejects SMH Mirza’s bail plea

first_imgA special CBI court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea of suspended IPS officer SMH Mirza, who was arrested by the central agency for corruption in connection with the Narada tapes case, extending his judicial remand till November 26. Mr. Mirza’s counsel pleaded before the Kolkata court that his client is in no manner connected with the scandal but has been in custody for 49 days. He prayed to the court to grant Mr. Mirza bail as there’s been no progress in the case since his arrest. CBI lawyers pleaded that Mr. Mirza’s appeal be rejected as his custodial remand was needed further for interrogation.Mr. Mirza was the Burdwan Superintendent of Police when he was allegedly caught in a sting operation carried out by Mathew Samuel, the editor of Narada news portal, in 2014. He was arrested on September 26 this year and produced before the court, which had initially remanded him to CBI custody for five days. The court had remanded Mr. Mirza to judicial custody for 14 days on September 30 and had extended it twice. The Narada tapes surfaced ahead of the 2016 West Bengal Assembly polls. In the tapes, persons resembling senior Trinamool Congress leaders and Mr. Mirza were seen accepting money from representatives of a fictitious company in return for favours. The Calcutta High Court had ordered a CBI probe into the Narada sting operation case on a public interest litigation, which sought an impartial investigation into the footage.last_img read more

Tiger’s Journey: 11 years that felt like several lifetimes

MOST READ Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid Woods checked into a Mississippi clinic for more than a month, apparently to deal with some sort of sex addiction. Most of his major sponsors fled for cover. Elin Nordegren divorced her cheating husband.In Woods’ return to golf at the Masters, he received a tongue-lashing from Augusta National chairman Billy Payne for his lack of moral scruples and for the poor example he set for America’s youth.A far cry, to be sure, from the greeting he got Sunday in the interview room from green-jacketed moderator Craig Heatley, “Welcome back, Tiger. Or more appropriately, welcome home.”If Woods thought things couldn’t get any worse back in 2010, he was mistaken.His body continued to betray him, leading to one surgery after another in an attempt to alleviate the unyielding pain. His back was such a mess that it became a struggle just to walk, or sleep, or play with his kids. Woods faced the very real possibility of never playing golf again, not even for fun.“So where is the light at the end of the tunnel?” he asked ruefully in 2015, a few weeks before Christmas. “I don’t know.”At that point, Woods conceded, any further achievements on the golf course would be mere “gravy.”The fourth surgery on his back was something of a last resort. Sure, he wanted to play golf again at the highest level, but he probably would have settled for a lifting of the pain and the ability to lead somewhat of a normal life. About six weeks later, he sank into another abyss when police found him asleep — or passed out — behind the wheel of his running car in the middle of the night. He was arrested and briefly jailed. His mugshot showed the face of a man whose life had seemingly spiraled out of control.Woods blamed it on a bad combination of pain medication, pleaded guilty to reckless driving and entered a diversion program.While he worked — again — to restore some order to his personal life, Woods began to realize that the fusion on his back had resulted in something of a medical miracle. His swing got stronger and stronger, more and more like the Tiger of old. He kept dreading a return of the excruciating, piercing pain, but it stayed away.

Major champion.“Ahh, it fits,” Woods said, beaming as he tugged on that famous green jacket for the first time since 2005, a photo of Bobby Jones staring down above his left shoulder in the Butler Cabin.For so many years, everything fit so neatly.From his astonishing swings on “The Mike Douglas Show” at the age of 2 to becoming the first player to win three straight U.S. Amateur titles to capturing the Masters not long after his 21st birthday by a whopping 12 strokes, the Tiger Way was pure perfection, generating millions for him and his sponsors.He married a Swedish model, had two beautiful children and kept adding one major title after another, capturing his 14th by his early 30s, on a seemingly unstoppable quest to surpass Jack Nicklaus as the greatest champion of them all.Then, just like that, it all fell apart.His marriage. His reputation. His body.He had major reconstructive surgery on his left knee shortly after hobbling to what had been his most recent major championship, a playoff victory in the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.Turns out, that was only a minor prelude to all that agony that was to come, so much of it self-inflicted.While everyone was celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday in 2009, Woods crashed his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant outside his Florida home. That led to reports of a myriad of extramarital affairs, wrecking the facade he and his father had constructed of the dedicated athlete and perfect family man. Overnight, one of the world’s most famous people became a punchline.

Ohio State LB Darron Lee Doesn’t Understand Why Michigan Brags About Its Success In The 90s

first_imgDarron Lee tweets message bashing the Michigan 1990's teams.Darron Lee Michigan DissIt’s been a while since Michigan’s football program was truly elite. Since the 1990s, probably. Two decades ago, the Wolverines won a national championship (1997), five Big Ten championships and had a winning record (7-2) against rival Ohio State. Since then, they’ve had a couple really good seasons, but success on a national level (and against the Buckeyes) has been inconsistent at best. Ohio State sophomore linebacker Darron Lee doesn’t understand why the Wolverines think they can brag about what happened 20-something years ago. Never knew why the TTUN always talked about the 90’s like anyone remembers…or cared but hey gotta cling to something right?— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) May 19, 2015Michigan’s game against Ohio State – the first Jim Harbaugh vs. Urban Meyer meeting – is set to occur on Nov. 28.
