Gunman commits suicide at University of Texas

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

A man wearing a ski mask and carrying an assault rifle apparently killed himself in the library of the University of Texas in Austin, Texas earlier today.

The university was placed under lockdown and all classes were canceled as a result of the incident. Nobody else was hurt, but police are still looking for a possible second gunman. Art Acevedo, the chief of Austin police, said that officials are also considering the possibility of explosives left by the suspect. Armored vehicles were seen moving around the campus in response to the event, as well as {{w|SWAT team|SWAT teams}, bomb-sniffing dogs, and police helicopters. An ambulance was seen around 9:00 a.m. CDT (1400 UTC) at the University of Texas’ Perry-Castaneda library.

The school’s website included a notice this morning, which read: “The person involved in this morning’s shooting on campus has been confirmed dead on the sixth floor of the Perry-Castaneda Library from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Law enforcement are searching for a second suspect. If you are off campus, STAY AWAY. If you are on campus, lock doors, do not leave your building.” The gunman was reportedly killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and no shots had been fired by law enforcement officials.

The shooter has not yet been identified, and the reason behind the incident is not yet known. Witnesses described the man as wearing a dark suit and ski mask, and carrying an assault rifle. Randall Wilhite, a professor at the university, said that he heard gunshots while going to class and saw the suspect heading toward the library just after 8:00 a.m. CDT (1300 UTC). The gunman appeared to be firing shots randomly. “When I pulled up in my car, he stood right in front of me and didn’t stop running but turned in my direction, fired three shots into the ground to the left of my car and kept running,” said Wilhite. The gunman had the chance to shoot students, added Wilhite, but he did not appear to be targeting them.

The school, which has around 50,000 students, sent out an alert around that time warning students to stay where they were. Robby Reeb, a senior at the school, said that “a guy sprinted past me screaming, ‘There’s a guy with a gun.’ I looked up and saw a man in a ski mask, wearing a suit, and carrying an assault rifle. And I called 911.”

Police said that the gun used in the shooting was an AK-47, and that they were examining two different crime scenes: where the shots were fired outside, and where the gunman was found dead in the library. Police would not say whether he was attending the university. Chief Acevado said that there were “reports of a second suspect that was wearing a beanie with a long rifle, wearing blue jeans and a black top” that “may or may not be a white male.”

Several hours after the lockdown began, police allowed students to leave the university’s campus, although nobody is still allowed to enter.

The school was also the site of a shooting spree on August 1, 1966, in which university student Charles Whitman fatally shot fourteen to sixteen people and wounded another 32 before being himself killed by law enforcement authorities; reports of the exact death toll are inconsistent. Whitman, a former U.S. Marine, shot students from the observation platform of the school’s tower. That event was the deadliest school shooting in the United States until the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

India to build aircraft carrier by 2012

India to build aircraft carrier by 2012

Saturday, March 26, 2005

India announced on March 23 that it will build an indigenous aircraft carrier by 2012.

The announcement represents a historic military development for India and the Asian region. Although India is already one of the nine countries capable of projecting their military power via aircraft carrier, they have not had the capability to build an aircraft carrier themselves.

The project will begin on April 11 with a “steel-cutting ceremony” attended by Indian Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee.

The vessel will be constructed at a state-owned shipyard with technical assistance from foreign consultancy firms. An Italian company is providing design consultation while a Russian firm is contributing aviation technology.

The construction of an indigenous aircraft carrier is part of India’s larger plan to modernize its navy. India aims to strengthen its navy, and its military power generally, through greater cooperation with and purchase of weapons systems from the United States.

In a related development, the United States announced on Friday that it intends to help India become a “major world power.”

Jenson Button wins Hungarian Grand Prix

Jenson Button wins Hungarian Grand Prix

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Jenson Button of McLaren-Mercedes took first place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring, marking his 200th grand prix race in style. Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull-Renault came in second, extending his lead in the 2011 Driver’s Championship to 85 points. Fernanado Alonso of Ferrari took the third place on the podium.

The race was affected by intermittent wet weather, with tyre choice playing a crucial role in the result. Button’s teammate Lewis Hamilton held the lead at times, but suffered from mistimed tyre changes, as well as a spin on lap 47 and a drive through penalty. He was closely followed over the line by Mark Webber of Red Bull.

Felipe Massa took sixth place for Ferrari, followed by Force India’s Paul di Resta scoring the highest placing of his career so far. Sébastien Buemi, Nico Rosberg and Jaime Alguersuari rounded out the top ten.

Four drivers did not finish the race, including Michael Schumacher whose car suffered a gearbox failure, and Nick Heidfeld. Heidfeld’s Renault overheated during a longer than usual pit-stop, catching fire when emerging from the pit-lane. The driver escaped unhurt, though as marshals were tackling the fire an air bottle on the car exploded. The incident did not affect the rest of the race, with the safety car not being deployed.

In 2006, with similar weather conditions, the Hungarian circuit was the scene of Button’s first F1 victory. Combining his triumph today with the celebrations of his 200th race, Button quipped that he was looking forward to the drivers’ brief holiday before the next race.

“It’s great to have a couple of weeks break. It might take me that long to get over tonight.”

Why Broadband Reviews Are Important

Submitted by: Matt Dean

If you’ve only ever lived in one place or you’re not particularly adventurous with your utility bills, you may be forgiven for wondering exactly how one broadband provider is really going to be different from another. What can one provider offer you that another can’t outside of a small price change or a few added features you may never use anyway?

However, if you’ve used more than a few different providers in the past, you’ll know that this couldn’t be further from the truth. When your looking for a provider price can play the largest factor and after that, many people follow brands they know well, falling in as customers with one of the big name broadband ISPs like BT or TalkTalk under the misconception that it doesn’t really matter.

But there’s plenty of different factors that warrant users taking a look at broadband providers beyond the usual boundaries of price and familiarity. That’s why taking a look at a broadband comparison site, social review portal or any other site that can offer you in depth broadband reviews can save you more than just the cash you might save by good research or switching provider, they can save you a lot of time and energy on a provider that might not be the best choice for your location, budget and situation.

Take for example a typical broadband feature that we don’t ever really think about until the day comes that we really need to rely on it: technical support. From reading a providers website you can find out the cost of the technical support and from reading the small print you can figure out even more. However, its only really from reading broadband reviews that you can really begin to find out about quality, or the amount of time you might spend waiting on the phone, or the amount of problems a provider actually has, or how well things like their email support system work.

Broadband reviews work so well because they aren’t usually written by a magazine or consumer guide. You can’t really review a provider until you’ve used them for a long time, so you know that every review you read from another user comes from someone that’s been dealing with that provider for a long time and can provide you with for more useful information about the day to day ability of a provider than any simple list of features.

At the same time it’s always a good idea to take broadband reviews with a pinch of salt. Don’t forget that people are more likely to go online and post negative comments when things go wrong and they are upset than they are to go online and writing a glowing review of something they use every day. For those reasons it’s best to read plenty of broadband reviews at once and analyse what people are saying. Did they honestly dislike the provider or did they have a single problem? Have they taken issue with the lack of a feature that you know you’d never use?

Ask questions, read as many reviews as you can and combine that information with prices and feature lists and you’ve got the best possible information you can get about which broadband provider to choose.

Australian Senator arrives at Parliament dressed as a beer bottle

Australian Senator arrives at Parliament dressed as a beer bottle

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Family First Senator Steve Fielding arrived at Parliament today, dressed as a beer bottle to raise awareness of a bill he intends to move in the Senate today. Senator Fielding will introduce a bill to establish a nationwide refund scheme for bottles and cans.

A similar scheme has operated in South Australia since 1977.

Family First wants a rebate of 10 cents per container, while the Australian Greens want 20 cents.

Speaking to reporters outside parliament dressed as a beer bottle, the Senator said the legislation would reduce litter by 25 per cent. “There’s a message in this bottle.”

“I am no longer trash, I’m cash.”

“We should get the litter off the streets and off the creeks and into recycling – that’s good for the environment and good for the community”

“It’s a win-win and I can’t understand why nationally we don’t have a scheme,” said Senator Fielding.

Senator Fielding said that recycling not only reduced litter, but also consumes less energy than making new containers from scratch. “Recycling a plastic bottle saves more than 80 per cent of the energy used to make a bottle from scratch and recycling aluminium cans uses just five per cent of the energy used making a can from scratch,” said the Senator.

Senator Bob Brown, leader of the Greens said while there were environmental benefits from recycling, it would also create thousands of new jobs.

“This is a very good way of recycling and reducing energy because a lot of energy goes into making cans and bottles,” Senator Brown told reporters.

“It will employ tens of thousands of people across Australia.”

Mongolia’s ruling party wins elections as rioting subsides

Mongolia’s ruling party wins elections as rioting subsides

Thursday, July 3, 2008

Mongolia’s ruling People’s Revolutionary Party (MPRP) has been declared winners of the country’s legislative elections, two days after allegations of vote-rigging leveled against the ruling party sparked violent protests in the capital of Ulaanbaatar.

Preliminary results show the MPRP with 47 seats out of 76 in the State Great Khural, General Election Committee spokesman Nergui reported. The opposing Democratic Party won 26 seats, Nergui said, with the remaining seats divided between minor parties. The official results are expected to be revealed tomorrow. Nevertheless, the preliminary results indicate a decisive victory for the former communist party.

International observers say the vote was largely fair. There were some irregularities reported, but according to William Ifante, Mongolia director of The Asia Foundation, “they were in no way widespread” and the election “appeared to have been transparent and free throughout.”

This did not stop Democratic Party supporters from taking to the streets on Tuesday in protest of alleged election fraud. Rioters clashed with police, setting fire to the MPRP headquarters and a cultural center. Five people were killed in the violence, over 300 were injured, and around 700 protesters were detained. President Nambaryn Enkhbayar declared a four-day state of emergency in the capital, which will stay in effect until Saturday.

Calm has since been restored in Ulaanbaatar, although a heavy police presence remains in the city. “Life is steadily coming back to normal. Military equipment has been moved from the city and traffic restrictions have been lifted,” said Justic Minister Monkh-Orgil. Protests have been banned during the state of emergency, but Democratic Party leader Tsakhiagiyn Elbegdorj does not expect a recurrence of the violence.

However, Elbegdorj still asserts that the elections were marred by fraud, and he is demanding a recount. “I am deeply saddened that this vote was stolen,” he said. “It was stolen and there needs to be a recount. The result is false.”
