The State Department suspended an employee of its energy bureau for alleged ties to a white supremacist group.According to Politico, Matthew Gebert, a foreign affairs officer for the department’s Bureau of Energy Resources, has been an active member of a white supremacist group for more than five years.Gebert has been linked to the Washington D.C.-area chapter of white supremacy.A report published Wednesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate speech, also linked Gerbert to racist propaganda published online.The group cited a post from Gebert where he allegedly called for white people to establish “a country of our own with nukes, and we will retake this thing lickety-split.”The State Department has not spoken out about the matter at this time.

Hot on the heels of the Australian Mens 30’s Touch team being nominated at the Australian Sports Awards, one of TFA’s leading officials was nominated for an award at the Australian Sports Commission 2006 Ausport Awards.The Ausport Awards recognise coaches, officials, management and other programs that have played pivotal roles in developing sport Australia-wide. TFA took the opportunity to nominate a member of our National Referees Panel (NRP) who has served the sport and its officials tirelessly for many years.Ian Matthew, who is also the Director of Referees in NSW, was nominated for the ‘Officials Development Award’ and we were delighted when he was short-listed to the final three nominees. Unfortunately Ian was unable to attend the Awards breakfast in Melbourne, due to his commitments in Coffs Harbour for the NTL, but Miles Davine, Touch Football Victoria Manager, kindly stepped in and attended on Ian’s behalf.The eventual winner of the award was Sharon Arnold from Basketball Australia, while Ian Matthew and Neil Poulton from Baseball were both highly commended at the breakfast.Ian can be credited for many of the strategies and techniques in place in Touch Football today to develop referees from grass roots level to the elite level. He has influenced an enormous number of referees through his work at local, state, national and international level. Thank you Ian for all of your hard work!
Berlin: Scientists have detected the most ancient type of molecule in our universe in space for the first time ever. Helium hydride ion (HeH+) was the first molecule that formed when, almost 14 billion years ago, falling temperatures in the young universe allowed recombination of the light elements produced in the Big Bang. At that time, ionised hydrogen and neutral helium atoms reacted to form HeH+, said researchers from The Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) in Germany. Despite its importance in the history of the early Universe, HeH+ has so far escaped detection in astrophysical nebulae — cloud of gas and dust in outer space. Operating the GREAT far-infrared spectrometer onboard the flying observatory SOFIA, an international team reported unambiguous detection of the molecule towards the planetary nebula NGC 7027. During the dawn of chemistry when the temperature in the young universe had fallen below 4000 Kelvin, the ions of the light elements (hydrogen, helium, deuterium and traces of lithium) produced in Big Bang nucleosynthesis recombined in reverse order of their ionisation potential. Helium combined first with free electrons to form the first ever neutral atom, according to the study published in the journal Nature. At that time hydrogen was still ionised or present in form of bare protons. Helium atoms combined with these protons into the helium hydride ion HeH+, the universe’s first molecular bond. As recombination progressed, HeH+ reacted with then neutral hydrogen and created a first path to the formation of molecular hydrogen — marking the beginning of the modern universe. Despite its unquestioned importance in the history of the early Universe, the HeH+ molecule has so far escaped detection in interstellar space, researchers said. Studied in the laboratory as long ago as 1925, dedicated searches during the last decades have been unsuccessful, thereby challenging our understanding of the underlying chemical networks, they said. “The chemistry of the universe began with HeH+. The lack of definitive evidence of its very existence in interstellar space has been a dilemma for astronomy for a long time,” said Rolf Gusten from the MPIfR. In the late 1970s, astro-chemical models suggested the possibility that HeH+ might exist at detectable abundances in local astrophysical nebulae, and would be most easily observed in so-called planetary nebula, ejected by Sun-like stars in the last stage of their lifetime. The hard radiation field produced by the central white dwarf star with a temperature of more than 100,000 degrees drives ionisation fronts into the ejected envelope, where HeH+ is predicted to form.
Rabat – French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Laurent Fabuis, apologized on Friday to his Moroccan counterpart, Salaheddine Mezouar, after the “humiliating” way in which the Moroccan Minister was treated at Paris Charles De Gaulle airport.“Laurent Fabius called his Moroccan counterpart to present the apologies of the French authorities for the inconvenience that has been caused to him while transiting at Charles de Gaulle airport,” the spokesman Quai d’Orsay, Romain Nadal was quoted by Le Figaro as saying.“The minister immediately asked the competent department of the Ministry of the Interior and Paris Airport that everything be done to enforce strictly in French airports the rules and diplomatic practices that apply to foreign ministers and heads of state and government,” he added. In its edition of Friday, the Moroccan newspaper Assabah reported that the French custom services subjected Salaheddine Mezouar, Morocco’s Foreign Minister, to what it described as a “humiliating” search while he was on transit at Paris Charles De Gaulle airport on his way to Morocco.According to the same source, the inspection procedure, described as “degrading” was long, while the head of Moroccan diplomacy was forced to remove his coat, belt and other footwear.The incident happens a month after the relations between Morocco and France entered a period of tension and turbulence following a lawsuit filed by an NGO against Abdellatif Hammouchi, the head of Moroccan Domestic Intelligence Agency (DGST), and the decision of a French judge to send 7 policemen to Moroccan ambassador’s residence to inform Hammouchi, who was accompanying the Interior Minister on a visit to Paris, of a summon issued by the investigating judge.Few days later, French press reported a statement made by Javier Bardem, one of the staunch supporters of the Polisario, in which he allegedly said that during a meeting he had held with France’s Ambassador to the United Nations in 2011, the French diplomat had told him that “Morocco is a mistress who you sleep with every night, who you don’t particularly love but you have to defend.”© Morocco World News.

The manager was not happy with the 2-1 defeat against Everton, but he knows Danny Ings can contribute a lot to the teamDanny Ings signed for Southampton on August 9th of this year.And ten days later, he scored his team’s only goal against Everton this weekend.This has let to Southampton boss Mark Hughes to praise his work.“Danny looked sharp and could have scored in the first half but it’s actually a fantastic save having seen it since,” Hughes said to the Saint’s official website.Solskjaer slams Man United’s draw: “We should have won” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue another missed opportunity as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Southampton.“I thought it was just a close-range miss but he’s actually saved it so credit to their ‘keeper.”Danny Ings scored at the 54th-minute mark after his team was down 2-0.His goal gave Southampton hope but the team didn’t manage to tie the match against Everton.“We got him off and running in the second-half so for him coming to a new club, as a striker you want to get off the mark very, very quickly and that’s what he has done so that’s a positive,” Hughes added.
Erika deadly; heading to Turks & Caicos and The Bahamas Recommended for you Related Items:cheddi jagan international airport, donald ramotar, guyana aviation, guyanese pilot, Khamraj Lall, money smuggling, puerto rico, ramesh ghir Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppGuyana Aviation Press Release, 27 Nov 2014 – A Guyanese pilot/businessman is currently being held in a Puerto Rican jail after he failed to disclose a large sum of cash which was hidden in several parts of the private jet he was onboard.Khamraj Lall was the co-pilot onboard the jetliner bearing tail number N822QL when it stopped in the American annex of Puerto Rico to refuel.United States Customs and Border Protection agents were conducting routine checks onboard the aircraft when they discovered large sums of the US currency totaling over $600,000. The airport agents had asked Lall and two other occupants to declare the money they were carrying. Lall was at the time traveling with his father and the pilot of the craft.The pilot declared US$60 while together, the co-pilot and his father produced US$12,000. The hidden cash was found under a row of seats near to the plane’s exit and a suitcase with garbage bags of money was also found near the engine.After the first sum of money was found under the seats, he told the authorities that it was proceeds from his business and he had forgotten that he had it there.The authorities nonetheless continued their search, and found the remainder of cash near the engine. The pilot was then reported as taking full responsibility for the cash. He stated that his father and the pilot had nothing to do with the hidden money. The flight was said to be heading for Georgetown, Guyana.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ramesh Ghir told Guyana Aviation that the local aviation authorities are “shocked” by the recent developments. Ghir confirmed that Lall is a Guyanese businessman who has a private hangar at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).He said the pilot was given permission some time back to construct the hangar where he is to conduct medical evacuations and other private flights out of Guyana. Lall is said to own two private jets.However, after news of Lall’s detention surfaced, more information surfaced that the pilot was given special privileges at CJIA where he was allowed to forgo necessary customs and immigration among other security checks. Ghir and Minister of Transport, Robeson Benn both dismissed the claims declaring that all persons using the airport facilities have to go through the mandatory security procedures.The facility is however located some distance away from CJIA’s arrival and departure building. The private hangar is very secluded. One has to turn right off the main road, to the southern end on the CJIA tarmac onto ‘Khali Road.’ This then takes you to the only building in that location of the airport.There is a private security hut ahead of the hangar’s main building. No airport security is visible in this location.Airport staffers told Guyana Aviation that because of the location, one can access the facility without authorities or anyone else ever knowing. This they say can be dangerous in terms of security, “while you may never know what kind of business is going on at the back there.”It was stated also that Head of State Donald Ramotar would have traveled a few times on state business with the private jet. The bigger question asked was whether the flight was paid for with state funds or not. Benn opined that the flights could not have been free.When asked, Ghir hinted to Guyana Aviation that it would not have been possible for the jet to smuggle money into or out of the country since it would have gone through the relevant security checks. The hangar is expected however to provide arrival and departure areas, executive lounges and spaces for customs and immigration agents among other facilities. The high-end clients will not have to go through the airport’s main arrival and departure facilities.Currently, the private hangar is incomplete, Benn said. Much of the furnishings and internal work is to be concluded.Lall who is said to have several other business ventures in Guyana, is expected to attend a bail hearing in Puerto Rico next week.
