first_imgTEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s top officials on Sunday welcomed the initial agreement struck with world powers over its nuclear activities, hailing the deal as the beginning of a new era for the Islamic republic, both in its relations with other countries and for its sanctions-ravaged economy.“Trust is, of course, a two-way street, and we must also find this trust in others. The first step in creating that trust has been taken,” Iran’s new president, the moderate cleric Hassan Rouhani, said in a statement broadcast live on television Sunday morning.Addressing concerns over the language in the agreement between the six world powers and Iran regarding Tehran’s ability to continue work on its nuclear program, Rouhani said, “Let anyone make his own reading, but this right is clearly stated in the text of the agreement that Iran can continue its enrichment, and I announce to our people that our enrichment activities will continue as before.”Rouhani, who was joined on the broadcast by the families of several Iranian nuclear scientists who were assassinated in recent years, also reiterated what Iran claims is the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.“Let me say once more, the Iranian nation does not want nuclear weapons,” Rouhani said, referring to the accusations that Iran is attempting to build a bomb as “one of those funny jokes of history.”A key point for Tehran throughout the negotiations with the group of world powers has been a clear path to reductions in the sanctions that have wrought havoc on Iran’s economy in recent years.One of the achievements of Sunday’s agreement, according to Rouhani, is that “the sanctions will be broken. The cracks in the sanctions began last night, and in the future those gaps will be grow.”Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has long doubted the sincerity of Western leaders, expressed guarded approval of the agreement.Responding to a letter from Rouhani, Khamenei thanked the efforts of Iran’s negotiating team, led by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, but asked the members to continue their vigilance in dealing with old enemies.“God willing, standing against the arrogant powers is and will be the main criteria on the path forward for those in charge of this issue,” Khamenei wrote.While the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive to the announcement of the initial agreement in Tehran, some conservative lawmakers are giving signs that they may try to short-circuit any deal.“Our minister of foreign affairs says something, the U.S. secretary of state says something else, our television and 8 a.m. news are all saying things that are contradictory. We want to help the government, but the Geneva agreement must be ratified by the parliament,” Hamid Rasaei, a cleric and hard-line parliament member, told fellow lawmakers on Sunday.Throughout Sunday Iranian state media went to great lengths to say that the deal was in Iran’s favor, with the news ticker highlighting the rights that Iran will retain, the promise of reduced sanctions and quotes from Israeli lawmakers who called the agreement a “win” for Iran.It is the hope for improved economic prospects that is capturing the attention of most people here.“Let the world know that we do not have a dispute with any country. Now that sanctions are going to be relaxed, our economy will start growing and people will feel better. I hope the end result becomes reduction of prices to ease people’s lives,” said Mahmood Gerami, a 48-year-old shopkeeper in Tehran.Authorities are counting on that positive sentiment to help jump-start Iran’s long-slumping economy, and the first sign that the agreement is having that effect was a early-morning rise of nearly 2 percent in the value of Iran’s national currency, the rial, against the U.S. dollar.“Some of our economic problems are related to psychological issues, especially the prices of gold coins and currencies’ exchange rates. This negative effect will diminish and ultimately disappear because of this agreement,” Yahya Ale Eshagh, head of Tehran’s Chamber of Commerce, said in an interview with the state-run Mehr News agency.Others remain cautious in their optimism, acknowledging the heavy burden that Iran has faced in fighting to maintain its nuclear program.“I’m happy to hear the news of an agreement, but I doubt that change will come soon or easily,” said Aida Sarbandian, a 34-year-old secretary. “So many problems have piled on top of each other especially during the last four years, and it will take time to solve them. But all in all, this is a breakthrough.”The deal comes on Rouhani’s 99th day in office and the milestone was an important one for the administration, which has had few measurable successes in its early months.“I’m happy that before my first 100 days finished we had this victory,” Rouhani said.

first_imgThings are looking up for the Costa Rican tourism sector and maybe Ticos looking for work in a tight job market, according to a new report released last week.Costa Rica’s world famous tourism sector is set to grow 5.8 percent during 2014, according to the latest economic impact assessment from the World Travel and Tourism Council. The jump is up from 4.6 percent of gross domestic product in 2013, some $6 billion.The report estimated tourism’s total contribution to the national economy added up to 12.1 percent of GDP in 2013 and prognosticated that tourism will make up 13.7 percent of Costa Rica’s GDP by 2024. Figures showing travel and tourism’s contribution to Costa Rica’s GDP and employment. Courtesy World Travel and Tourism CouncilGrowth in tourism could be a boon to out-of-work Ticos. The WTTC estimates that growth in the leisure sector during 2014 will add 7.2 percent more jobs than in 2013, and 6.2 percent more to total employment. The travel organization estimates that Costa Rica could see the biggest bump in the Americas in 2014 for tourism-related jobs, far exceeding the regional average of 2 percent growth.The WTTC findings contrast with a survey from the National Tourism Chamber from January that said 70 percent of tourism businesses did not plan on hiring more staff during peak tourism season between December and April, despite anticipated growth.Costa Rica has the second highest uneployment rate in Latin America, behind Colombia, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean. Unemployment in Costa Rica fell to 8.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, according to the National Statistics and Census Institute, down from 9.8 during the same period in 2012.The WTTC estimated that tourism and travel-related industries account for more than 11.5 percent of jobs in Costa Rica.Costa Rica’s tourism industry took a hard hit during the global financial crisis in 2008, but has seen improvement since 2011.The tourism research organization also put some hard figures to something many U.S. travelers already know: Flying is too expensive.The report noted that U.S. passengers pay more taxes on their flights — 20 percent — than “sin” goods, like firearms (10 percent) or liquor (11 percent). The organization argued that the travel and tourism industry bears a disproportionate tax burden in the United States, an average of 14 percent, compared to manufacturing (4 percent) and health care (11 percent).The WTTC describes itself as a forum dedicated to promoting the economic impact of the travel and tourism industry.

first_imgProsecutors hope these 19 women can help convict Bill Cosby by Michael R. Sisak, The Associated Press Posted Jan 19, 2018 8:14 am PDT Last Updated Jan 19, 2018 at 1:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email PHILADELPHIA – Prosecutors this week asked the judge in Bill Cosby’s spring retrial to let jurors hear from 19 other women who say the entertainer drugged and molested them.They want to show that an alleged assault in 2004 that led to Cosby’s only criminal charges was part of a five-decade pattern of drugging and harming women.The potential witnesses are among about 60 women who have come forward to accuse Cosby of drugging and molesting them.At Cosby’s first trial, which ended in a deadlock, prosecutors had tried to call 13 other accusers to testify. The judge allowed only one to take the stand.On Thursday, they renewed their request to have the 13 women testify, and added six more to the list. The new potential witnesses include model Janice Dickinson; a secretary who knew Cosby in the 1960s; and a performer who opened for him in the early 1980s.Attorneys for Cosby, who is now 80, have said the women’s memories are tainted at best and will ask the judge to bar them from testifying at the retrial, scheduled for April. In many cases, they have responded to the women’s specific allegations, as noted below.The Associated Press does not typically name people who say they are sexual-assault victims, but those named below have consented.___THE CRIMINAL CASEANDREA CONSTANDAges then: She was 30; he was 66.Constand told police in 2005 that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her a year earlier at his suburban Philadelphia estate. A Temple University basketball team manager, Constand said he gave her three unlabeled blue pills to “relax” as she discussed a career change. She said she was semi-conscious when he digitally penetrated her. Cosby, a Temple alumnus, booster and trustee, is charged with sexually assaulting a person unable to give consent, a felony that could bring 10 years in prison upon conviction. The defence says her story has evolved and there were other times they were sexually intimate. Cosby has pleaded not guilty.___THE 19 OTHERSKRISTINA RUEHLIAges then: She was 22, he was 27.Ruehli met Cosby in 1965 while working as a secretary at a Los Angeles talent agency. She says he invited her to a party at his home but that it was a ruse. Ruehli, who was named Donna Czapla at the time, says there were no guests other than her and an actress she’d brought with her. She says she took two drinks from Cosby and soon felt as if she were “floating.” Ruehli says she passed out and woke up naked in Cosby’s bed as he fondled her breasts and tried forcing her to give him oral sex. Cosby’s lawyer in 2014 said her allegations were among a group of unsubstantiated, absurd, decades-old stories.___LINDA BROWNAges then: She was 21; he was 32.Brown’s agent sent the aspiring model to attend Cosby’s show in Toronto and have dinner with him afterward in 1969. He invited her to his hotel room to give her a gift and offered her a soda that caused her to black out, she said, before raping her. The defence questions how she “blacked out” after two sips of soda.___CINDRA LADDAges then: She was 21; he was 32.Ladd, a model-turned-Hollywood executive married to former MGM chairman Alan Ladd Jr., met Cosby in 1969 when he offered career advice. They were at his friend’s house in New York one day when she complained about having a headache and he gave her a pill he called “a miracle cure” from his doctor. She became incapacitated, and Cosby raped her, she said. The defence says she only assumes they had sex because she had blacked out.___UNIDENTIFIED ACCUSER 1Ages then: She was 23; he was 34.She met Cosby through her job at the Playboy Club in New York in 1971. She said he offered her quaaludes in a limousine one day, which she declined. She then had three or four glasses of Champagne but believes they contained an intoxicant that left her unconscious. She said she woke up naked in a hotel room feeling sore and having been sexually assaulted. The defence says her case differs from Constand’s because they were closer in age and had only met twice.___DONNA MOTSINGERAges then: She was 26; he was 33.Motsinger was a waitress at the Trident restaurant in Sausalito, California, a favourite of Cosby’s. He befriended Motsinger and her 9-year-old son. In 1972, Motsinger said, she accepted an invitation to Cosby’s show and drank wine he gave her in the limousine on the way there. When a headache ensued, she took a pill he handed her. She said she recalls being fondled before waking up the next day, nearly naked, at her own home. The defence says the restaurant was “a notorious drug mecca” and Motsinger dated a founder of an LSD-linked band of hippies.___MARGIE SHAPIROAges then: She was 19; he was 38.Shapiro worked at Castle Donuts in Santa Monica, California, in 1975 when Cosby stopped by. She said he invited her to the set of “Mother, Jugs & Speed” and then to a dinner party but instead took her to a house near the Playboy Mansion, where they played pinball fueled by Cosby’s challenge that whoever lost would have to take a pill she believed to be a quaalude. She lost. She said she recalls waking up to find Cosby having sex with her. The defence says the doughnut shop has closed and the boss died, leaving it unable to thoroughly investigate her account.___THERESE SERIGNESEAges then: She was 19; he was 38.Serignese, now a nurse, was in the gift shop of the Las Vegas Hilton in about 1975 when she met Cosby. He later invited her to his show and then to a room backstage, where he gave her two pills that left her incapacitated before he raped her, she said. Cosby, in a 2006 deposition in Constand’s lawsuit, testified that he gave Serignese quaaludes before a consensual sexual encounter. The defence says “her story about their lengthy 20-year relationship after the incident (many would call it an affair) has changed drastically over the years.”___ELIZABETHAges then: She was 20; he was 38 or 39.The woman, who gave her name only as Elizabeth when she spoke publicly in 2015, was a flight attendant who met Cosby on a New York-Los Angeles flight in 1976. She said he invited her to the Playboy Mansion and to dinner, where he insisted she try the sake. She said the drink made her feel like she was in a “trancelike state” and remembers next being in Cosby’s hotel room and him forcing her to perform oral sex.___UNIDENTIFIED ACCUSER 2Ages then: She was about 30; he was about 43.The performer befriended Cosby after she opened for him at a Denver club in the early 1980s. Cosby arranged for the woman to meet him in Las Vegas. There, she said, Cosby invited her to his hotel room to discuss career plans and knocked her out with a spiked cordial drink. She said she’s sure Cosby raped her because a “girl can tell” when she has had sex.___UNIDENTIFIED ACCUSER 3Ages then: She was 23; he was about 43.The waitress and aspiring actress met Cosby in 1981, saw him as a mentor and accepted his invitation to eat dinner in a private room at the Denver club where she worked. She said she blacked out after drinking half a glass of wine and awoke to find herself naked in Cosby’s hotel bed as he stood over her in an open bathrobe. She said genital soreness and fluids on her body indicated that he’d raped her.___LINDA KIRKPATRICKAges then: She was 25; he was 43.Kirkpatrick met Cosby while playing against him in a tennis tournament in 1981. He offered her tickets to his show at the Las Vegas Hilton, where he gave her a drink in his dressing room that left her incapacitated, she said. She next recalls him being on top of her, kissing her and rubbing against her. The defence says her account is unique among Cosby accusers because they were at a party, surrounded by numerous people, when she took the drink.___JANICE DICKINSONAges then: She was 27; he was 45.Dickinson met Cosby in 1982 and saw him as a trusted friend and mentor as she tried to broaden her career from modeling to music and television. Dickinson said Cosby arranged for her to fly to see him perform in Lake Tahoe and knocked her out with a pill he gave her after she’d complained of stomach pain. She said she woke up in pain and found fluids between her legs. She never reported the encounter to authorities and has said she was afraid if she did that her career would be damaged and Cosby would retaliate. Cosby lawyer Martin Singer said in 2014 that Dickinson’s allegations were a lie and a “glaring contradiction” to what she wrote in her book and what she’d previously told the media.___JANICE BAKER-KINNEYAges then: She was 24; he was 45.Baker-Kinney, then a Harrah’s bartender in Reno, Nevada, went to a pizza party at a nearby home where Cosby was staying in 1982. He insisted she take two pills, she said, before the backgammon game they were playing went blurry. She said she recalls seeing her blouse unbuttoned and his pants unzipped before she awoke naked with signs she had been sexually assaulted. The defence says her story is “nothing like Ms. Constand’s” because she only met Cosby once, “voluntarily” took quaaludes and apologized for passing out.___HEIDI THOMASAges then: She was 24; he was 46.Thomas’ agent sent the aspiring actress to meet Cosby for career advice at a Harrah’s hotel in Reno in 1984, but the limousine he sent instead took her to a private house where she said he gave her a drink so she could play the intoxicated person in a script he gave her. During intermittent bouts of consciousness, she said, she was naked and Cosby forced her to perform oral sex. The defence says she has given three versions of her story.___REBECCA NEALAges then: She was about 28; he was about 46.Neal worked as a masseuse at a Las Vegas health club where Cosby played tennis in the mid-1980s. He befriended her mother and aunt there, leading her to accept an invitation to his show at the Las Vegas Hilton and dinner afterward. Cosby urged her to have a drink set before her while he ate. She said he later raped her in his room while she was too disoriented to give consent. The defence says she knew him only for a few months, unlike Constand, and has said a waiter served the shot of vodka.___UNIDENTIFIED ACCUSER 4Ages then: She was 21; he was 48.She was a flight attendant and aspiring model when she met Cosby in 1986. After several months of friendship, including a chance to be an extra on Cosby’s television show, he invited her to dinner and then to his room at the Drake Hotel in Chicago. There, she said, he gave a glass of Champagne laced with an intoxicant that left her unable to ward off his sexual advances before she passed out.___CHELAN LASHAAges then: She was 17; he was 48.The model and aspiring actress met and befriended Cosby in 1986. Lasha said he invited her to his Las Vegas hotel room to introduce her to a modeling agency representative and gave her a pill he described as an antihistamine and a double shot of almond liqueur to help fight a cold. At Cosby’s behest, Lasha said, she changed into a robe, wet her hair and posed for a few modeling shots. She said Cosby then directed her to the bed, where he pinched her nipple and humped her leg as she lay immobilized and unable to speak. She says she woke up naked.___LISE-LOTTE LUBLINAges then: She was 23; he was about 52.Lublin was an aspiring actress when she met Cosby in 1989. She and her mother went for a run with Cosby, and he gave them show tickets before he invited her to the Elvis suite of the Las Vegas Hilton to practice acting improvisation. He prodded her to take two drinks to relax, which she ultimately did. She said she recalls seeing Cosby stroking her hair and walking down a hall before she woke up at home two days later. She said she believes she was sexually assaulted. The defence says Lublin assumes she is a victim based on other media accounts but can only remember Cosby stroking her hair.___KELLY JOHNSONAges then: She was 34; he was 58.Johnson was the only other accuser allowed to testify at Cosby’s first trial. She worked for Cosby’s agent and knew the entertainer for six years when he invited her to lunch at his bungalow at the Bel Air Hotel in 1996 to discuss her acting ambitions. She testified that Cosby was in a robe and slippers when she arrived and that he offered her wine and pressured her to take a large white pill that knocked her out. When she woke up, she said, her dress was disheveled and her breasts were exposed. Johnson said Cosby put lotion on her hand and forced her to touch his genitals. Johnson had corroborating evidence in the form of a 1996 workers’ compensation claim. Cosby’s lawyers argued Johnson was seeking a payout. At the first trial, a defence lawyer noted that she mixed up the years and other details of her encounters with Cosby and grilled her about why she never said anything when she left her job.___Associated Press writer Maryclaire Dale contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_imgTurkey has issued a new Navtex (navigational warning) by which it has reserved for ‘military training’ a large swathe of sea area off Famagusta Bay extending to within 30km of the location of an upcoming gas drill in Cyprus’ offshore block 3.Navtex 0153/18, issued by the Antalya Station, was effective on Monday. The reserved area is some 3,740 square kilometres, starting from just 25km off Cape Greco and covering a large part of block 3.At its southernmost boundary, the reserved area is reportedly just 30 km from the target selected by ENI and Kogas for conducting an exploratory drill in early February.The entire area reserved by Turkey comes within the Nicosia Flight Information Region (FIR), which is almost interchangeable with Cyprus’ Search and Rescue Area of Responsibility.In response, Cyprus issued a Navtex of its own, notifying mariners to disregard the Turkish navigational warning.Coming back, Turkish authorities issued a new Navtex (0155/18), claiming to nullify the Cypriot Navtex which sought to nullify the original Turkish notice to mariners.Appended to Turkey’s Navtex 0155/18 is a statement with political content.It states of the Cypriot notice: “The ‘Republic of Cyprus’ mentioned in NR 047/18 is not the original partnership state established in 1960.“Therefore, activity NR FA66-0153/18 in territory, the exclusive economic zone, the continental shelf and SAR region of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) is legal and in compliance with international law.”In effect, Turkey claims that the area it reserved is part of the breakaway regime’s continental shelf as well as its Search and Rescue Area of Responsibility.In recent months Ankara has escalated the use of navigational warnings around Cyprus, in an apparent bid to question the Republic’s jurisdiction over the latter’s SAR Area of Responsibility.Turkey does not recognise the Republic of Cyprus.The latest Turkish Navtex could also be seen as a warning of sorts to ENI, which plans to bring a drillship to block 3 sometime in the next few days.The Saipem 12000 drillship, leased by ENI, is currently located in block 6 – licensed to ENI and Total.Once finished in block 6, the drillship will immediately head out to block 3, at a drilling site dubbed ‘Soupia’ (Cuttlefish).Turkey maintains that Cyprus cannot unilaterally exploit its offshore natural gas resources without including the Turkish Cypriots. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
