Gallagher also forfeits more than $2600 a month for two months.SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A Navy Seal acquitted in San Diego of murder and other charges stemming from various alleged war crimes will appear in court again Wednesday morning to fight for his rank after posing with a corpse, the one charge for which he was convicted.Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher was acquitted of six of the seven charges he was facing, including fatally stabbing a wounded teenage ISIS fighter and shooting Iraqi civilians.After eight hours of deliberation, a jury of five Marines and two Navy men convicted Gallagher Tuesday solely of posing with the teen’s body in a photograph. While the verdict means Gallagher will walk away a free man, the charge could result in a penalty affecting Gallagher’s rank, which would in turn affect his salary and pension. The penalty will be discussed in court Wednesday.The charge for which he was convicted also carries a maximum sentence of four months behind bars, which he has already served.Gallagher, 40, could have faced up to life in prison if convicted of murdering the teen in May 2017, as well as shooting a male and female civilian and shooting at an unknown number of other civilians later that year in Mosul, Iraq.The highly decorated veteran was acquitted of charges including murder, attempted murder, willful discharge of a firearm and obstruction of justice. The jury began weighing Gallagher’s fate Monday afternoon, following a full day of closing arguments at the Naval Base in San Diego.Prosecutor Jeff Pietrzyk said in his closing argument that despite a lack of physical evidence, text messages and pictures Gallagher took with the teen’s body are direct evidence of his guilt.“Good story behind this one. Got him with my hunting knife,” read one of the text messages Gallagher allegedly sent to a colleague. “I got a cool story for you when I get back. I got my knife skills on.”Prosecutors alleged that once Gallagher received word of the prisoner, who was injured in an air strike, Gallagher said, “No one touch him. He’s mine.”As Gallagher and others tended to the teen, he allegedly pulled out a hunting knife and stabbed the boy multiple times, prosecutors argued. He was also accused of shooting two civilians, whose bodies were never recovered, just over a month later and opening fire on a crowd of other civilians from a sniper’s nest.Gallagher’s defense team claimed the allegations were lies coming from a group of disgruntled subordinates who felt their platoon commander was too tough on them.His attorney, Timothy Parlatore, said the SEALs who reported Gallagher were lying, and he contended the government was relying entirely on their word in the face of a complete absence of physical evidence that any of the charged events ever occurred.

(AP Photo/Gregory Bull) “No body, no forensics, no science, no evidence, no case,” Parlatore said during his closing arguments.The attorney emphasized that in addition to no bodies being recovered, no blood was ever seen on Gallagher or the hunting knife, despite photographs taken shortly after the stabbing allegedly happened. Without a body, a forensic expert testifying as an expert witness was unable to determine the teen’s cause of death based solely on video footage of the boy’s injuries.In surprise testimony during the trial, First Class Petty Officer Corey Scott, testified that he suffocated the wounded ISIS fighter after Gallagher stabbed the teen in the neck. Scott said he held down the boy’s breathing tube because he did not want him to suffer or be tortured by Iraqis.But Navy prosecutors said Gallagher’s text messages, particularly the wording of “Got him with my hunting knife,” was evidence of his admission to the murder.“The government’s evidence in this case comes from Chief Gallagher’s words, Chief Gallagher’s actions and Chief Gallagher’s SEALs,” Pietrzyk said.Parlatore argued that several SEALs posed with the ISIS fighter’s body and likened the text messages to “dark humor” that in no way proved Gallagher killed the teen.Prosecutors alleged that Gallagher threatened fellow SEALs over the allegations, and posted their names in private Navy social media groups in order to out them as traitors and sabotage their chances at career advancement.But Gallagher’s attorneys argued he was simply trying to clear his name amid the volatile claims made against him, and that divulging the names of the men spreading malicious rumors was a means of warning fellow SEALs who might serve with those men in the future.The trial was dogged by allegations of prosecutorial misconduct, with the trial judge finding that Navy prosecutors used tracking software to spy on the defense team’s email accounts.The judge, Capt. Aaron Rugh, removed Cmdr. Chris Czaplak from the case just before the trial was set to begin, ruling the prosecution sent emails to the defense and a Navy Times reporter that were embedded with code that would track the recipients’ email activity.The judge also ordered that Gallagher be released from custody due to violations of his Fourth and Sixth Amendment rights and reduced the maximum possible sentence of life without parole to life with the possibility of parole.Gallagher — a 19-year Navy veteran — received public support from President Donald Trump, who commented in a social media post earlier this year that Gallagher should be moved to less restrictive confinement. Trump also hinted at pardoning him if he was convicted.

Toy Fair 2019 Lego Hidden Side is like a tiny AR Ghostbusters

Here’s how to clean it Sprint Lego Hidden Side feels like an augmented reality haunted… Now playing: Watch this: Sep 1 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors $999 Post a comment Best Buy See It But there’s something about the nearly escape-room-like puzzle solving in the Hidden Side sets that feels intriguing. What if Lego made larger kits that involved more abstract puzzles, or had AR challenges that unlocked depending on what configuration you assembled the bricks in? What if the little brick worlds could be theater sets where all sorts of AR stories could unfold, like the tiny AR storybook worlds of apps like Wonderscope?I also expected that, maybe, the AR app could finally help me reconstruct Lego sets or build new ones from scratch, like an augmented-reality version of Nintendo’s Labo cardboard kits. What about using AR to help scan and analyze bricks and guide construction without consulting those easy-to-lose paper manuals? No such luck yet, but it sounds like Lego may be working on it. I hope so, because I have a buckets of loose bricks at home in the kids’ playroom, and we could use the virtual help.First published Feb. 14, 2019 at 6 a.m. PT.Update Feb. 16 at 8:42 a.m. PT: Updated for Toy Fair 2019 weekend. See It Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR I was immediately reminded of Nintendo’s ghost-hunting Luigi’s Mansion game, but in this case there are actual physical Lego bricks. That, and of course, Ghostbusters, plus a bit of Pokemon Go. Lego’s previous AR apps for specific Lego kits were built off Apple’s ARKit. Lego: Hidden Side’s inspiration started further back, with the success of app-enabled kits like Lego Nexo Knights. Lego’s AR app for Hidden Side was custom-built to work with both iPhones and AR-ready Android phones, but that also means no multiplayer (a feature that’s possible in Lego Playgrounds, which allows more than one person to see the blend of Lego bricks and virtual AR objects with multiple phones/tablets).Once the different sets are assembled, little hidden puzzles lurk inside that trigger events. Maybe a moving panel, or a treasure chest where a ghost is hidden. Color-changing panels also sync up with different “ghost lens” spectrums in the phone game: Red, blue and yellow lenses shift worlds and help find more spirits.lego-hidden-side-4Collecting some basic ghosts. Scott Stein/CNET The overlap of real pieces and virtual effects and AR objects seen in-phone looked pretty good, maybe even a step up from the Playgrounds app. A Lego tree suddenly turned into a haunted, animated object, and other parts of the set seemed to come alive. But, yeah, you have to hold a phone in your hand.The Lego: Hidden Side sets are meant to stay constructed so you can play the game, so if your kids are like mine and start mashing up sets and breaking down stuff as soon as they’ve made it, this probably isn’t for you. Also, the whole experience is designed, again, to be used while holding a phone in one hand (the AR app isn’t optimized for tablets), which may not be perfect for a lot of kids who don’t have phones (or if you, like me, don’t want your kids to be screen-immersed all the time and borrowing your phone).

Scott Stein/CNET Lego: Hidden Side isn’t the first augmented-reality-enabled construction set Lego’s made, but it’s the first line designed to work with AR from the ground up. The sets tell a tale about a haunted world where ghosts lurk, and it’s a self-contained story world such as Ninjago or Nexo Knights. The sets will cost between $20 and $130 when they arrive later this summer (Roughly £15-£100 or AU$30-AU$180 converted.)An AR-equipped phone app finds the ghosts in the set and sucks them up, collecting them like Pokemon. The kits feel like little movie sets, where the game plays out via augmented-reality characters that appear on the tiny stages. You don’t technically need to use the phone app to put Hidden Side sets together, but the extra gameplay and missions are a big part of the package.

WATCH LIVE Trumps First News Conference Since Being Elected President

first_imgI will hold a press conference in the near future to discuss the business, Cabinet picks and all other topics of interest. Busy times!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 13, 2016This press conference comes nine days before Trump is set to be sworn in as a the 45th president of the United States and nearly a month after Trump canceled his last scheduled news conference. That one was supposed to be about how he would unwind the complex international financial entanglements of the Trump Organization to avoid a potential conflict or perceived conflict of interest. This press conference is not specifically billed to be about that, but Trump has not fully answered how he would do this, beyond tweeting that he’d hand off management to his sons.Drew Angerer/Getty ImagesPresident-elect Donald Trump is expected to hold a news conference on Wednesday; it would be his first in more than 160 days.It also comes amid the busiest week since his electoral victory — and as more than half a dozen of his Cabinet nominees have testified about their records. Some of them have disagreed on expressed desired Trump policies — like on waterboarding and a border wall.And, of course, there’s policy and the issue of Obamacare. Republicans have said they want to “repeal and replace” it, but they can’t agree on what to replace it with, whether it should be repealed and replaced at the same time, or repealed and then replace it at a later date. A growing chorus of Republicans is arguing to do them at the same time. So what does Trump believe?There’s a lot to ask. Here are just some that some of us at NPR would like answered:From NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly, national security correspondent1. Last week, you received the classified briefing on Russia. Are you now persuaded that Vladimir Putin personally ordered a campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election? Are you persuaded that he did so in order to help you get elected?2. Will you continue tweeting after you are sworn in as president? Why do you prefer to communicate via Twitter as opposed to the channels that presidents and presidents-elect have traditionally used?From NPR’s Carrie Johnson, Justice correspondent3. You told an interviewer you’re “not sure” whether you want to retain FBI Director James Comey and that you’d like to understand his reasons “for doing what he did” in the email investigation of Hillary Clinton. Will you keep him on board or have you found a reason to demand his resignation?Context: The FBI director became the focus of bipartisan criticism for his extraordinary disclosures to Congress about the email probe as the election loomed. Traditionally, the Justice Department takes pains to avoid public action that could influence a political contest. Clinton aides have blamed Comey in part for their election loss. But Comey is only about three years into a 10-year-term, designed to insulate the FBI from political pressure during any single administration. Firing Comey could carry political risk for Trump, who may fear the former prosecutor will turn his energy toward investigating cabinet members and the White House.4. The Office of Government Ethics, a federal watchdog, took to Twitter last year to urge you to divest your holdings to resolve conflicts of interest before you’re sworn into office. Are you and your counsel and cabinet nominees following guidance you have received from OGE? In which instances have you ignored or countermanded their advice to divest?Context: In a break with years of protocol, the OGE went public on social media to encourage the president elect to divest some of his real estate and other investments. “Divestiture is good for you, very good for America,” one tweet read. “We can’t repeat enough how good this total divestiture will be.” But it’s not clear whether Trump will in fact completely divest or create a truly blind trust. The public statements hint at a bigger controversy: a behind the scenes battle over whether the nascent Trump administration is following advice from the federal ethics cops.From NPR’s Tamara Keith, White House correspondent5. Mr. President-elect, Senator Rand Paul says he spoke with you and got assurances that you supported his position that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced simultaneously. The Majority Leader, who you met with earlier this week, says the plan is to pass a repeal measure soon, and then work on passing a replacement later. Who do you agree with? What is your view about the appropriate timing and sequencing for undoing and replacing the Affordable Care Act?Context: Repealing key parts of president Obama’s signature healthcare law would only require 51 votes in the Senate, thanks to a procedural maneuver. If Republicans are united, they have the numbers to meet that threshold. Replacing the law would be harder as other legislation will require at least 60 votes in the Senate. In recent days there have been a number of cracks emerging in Republican unity, with a small but growing number of senators insisting that repeal and replace happen at the same time, while others have expressed concerns about some elements of previous repeal legislation. As Democrats know all too well, the US healthcare system is massive and complex with competing interests and reforming it is both challenging and politically perilous.Copyright 2017 NPR.

The topic of Russian hacking — and his alleged ties to the Kremlin — is sure to be Item A of Trump’s press conference. That’s especially true, since Trump still hasn’t yet explicitly accepted the findings of the intelligence community that Russia was, in fact, responsible for hacking the emails of the Democratic National Committee and a top Clinton aide — and that Russia’s intent to was to get him elected.Even though I am not mandated by law to do so, I will be leaving my busineses before January 20th so that I can focus full time on the……— Donald J.

Federal Open Market Committee Holds Off on Any Stimulus

first_img in Data, Government, Secondary Market August 2, 2012 476 Views Fed,Federal Open Market Committee Holds Off on Any Stimulus Acknowledging “”economic activity decelerated somewhat over the first half of this year”” and “”growth in employment has been slow in recent months,”” the “”Federal Open Market Committee””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/monetarypolicy/fomccalendars.htm nonetheless decided Wednesday to take no new actions to stimulate growth. [IMAGE]Concluding a two day meeting the FOMC instead said it would maintain its low interest rate policy and continue previously announced programs to reinvest proceeds of maturing Treasury securities it already holds and extend the average maturity of its portfolio.Those actions will not directly address the Federal Reserve’s two policy mandates: price stability and maximum sustainable economic growth ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô usually measured by the unemployment rate.Even the benign inaction drew a dissent from Jeffery Lacker, president of the Richmond [COLUMN_BREAK]Fed because he wanted to omit the time period over which rates would be exceptionally low.The FOMC said it would keep interest rates at current levels through the end of 2014.There was no hint, in the FOMC’s end-of-meeting statement of additional quantitative easing or a move towards price level, inflation, or nominal GDP targeting.In that statement the Fed offered a subdued view of the economy with the only marginally positive comment an acknowledgement that inflation has declined and “”longer term inflation expectations have remained stable,”” the same language the FOMC used six weeks ago at the end of its last meeting.””Household spending appears to be has been rising at a somewhat slower pace than earlier in the year,”” the FOMC said in its statement Wednesday, adding “”despite some further signs of improvement, the housing sector remains depressed.””The FOMC voted to maintain the target funds rate in a range of 0 percent to 0.25 percent, where it has been since December 2008. In addition, the Fed and said it continues to anticipates keeping the funds rate at “”exceptionally low levels”” through late 2014 because relatively soft economic growth, relatively low levels of resource utilization, and subdued inflation are expected to continue. The committee said it expects “”economic growth to remain moderate … and then pick up very gradually”” but that “”the unemployment rate will decline only slowly””. The major downside risk continues to be “”strains in global financial markets.””center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Ben S.

Unspoiled untouched and relatively unheard of as

first_imgUnspoiled, untouched and relatively unheard of as a tourist destination, Albania is one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Why Albania? Albania is still uncharted territory for most UK tourists; only 38,000 of us made the journey in 2006. Compare that to more than 16,000,000 Brits who visited Spain and you can see how low profile this Balkan country is.Albania almost has the same ring to it as places like Timbuktu or Outer Mongolia – giving the impression of being distant, slightly dangerous, inaccessible and exotic. But in recent years Albania has opened up to foreign visitors and although the Albanian authorities do little to promote it as a holiday destination to international tourists – it doesn’t mean it’s not worth a trip.Beaches and LakesSun seekers will enjoy Albania’s 450 miles worth of Adriatic and Ionian coastline dotted with protected, sandy bays and empty beaches. Further inland, Albania’s Alps and Tomorri Massif mountains will excite climbers, hikers and bikers; Mount Korabi is the highest peak in the country at 2753 m tall.Kayakers, fishermen and boaters will enjoy the range of fast flowing rivers as well as Lake Shkodra, which straddles the border between Albania and Montenegro and is the largest lake in the Balkans.Culture and FoodThere is also much to see and do if you’re of a historic and cultural persuasion, with ancient castles, Ottoman fortresses and the museum cities of Berati and Gjirokastra to explore.And let’s not forget the foodies; Albania’s delayed development means that farming methods are less intensive than in western Europe resulting in an abundance of organic fruit and veg. Albania’s Mediterranean garden yields ample fresh seafood, the mountain pastures provide tender lamb, and there is also Albania’s excellent wine to sample.Danger and difficultyNo visa is required for British citizens for stays of up to 30 days. Apart from the northern border with Kosovo which the FCO currently advises against visiting to due to the risk of unexploded mines and ammunition, travel in Albania shouldn’t present any great hazards to visitors.Albanian culture places great importance on hospitality, thus guests and especially foreign visitors are shown the highest respect, being offered the finest food and drink a family has to offer.One confusing aspect to remember; Albanians shake the heads from side to side to indicate “yes”, and nod up and down to mean “no”.Getting there and aroundFlight time to the capital Tirana from London is around 3 hours direct. When travelling inside the country remember that road infrastructure is not as developed as elsewhere in Europe, so even short distances can take a long time by car or bus – plan accordingly.For more information on visiting Albania see:Balkanology.com AlbanianTourism.comBritish FCO Adivce on AlbaniaFind cheap flights to AlbaniaRead more from the Hidden Countries series ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedSeven Secret Budget Beaches: sun, sea, sand and savingsGet your sun, sea and sand fix for less this summer.Secret summer destinations revealed by SkyscannerSecret summer destinations revealed by SkyscannerHidden beaches you could still escape to this summerStill looking for a perfect summer holiday destination?

A memorable fine dining experience at 30000 feet

first_imgA memorable fine dining experience at 30,000 feet awaits First and Business Class travelers flying Lufthansa beginning May 1, 2009. Through this unique partnership between Ritz-Carlton and Lufthansa, premium guests flying from the airline’s 18 U.S. gateways to Germany will select from dishes especially created by award-winning chefs at Ritz-Carlton properties in Denver, New York City, Boston, and San Francisco.“Business and leisure travelers want to be able to sit back, relax and enjoy fine dining- quality cuisine as they make their way to Munich, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. This collaboration came about only after months of intensive testing, planning, discussion, and tasting of dishes from appetizers to desserts,” said Simon F. Cooper, president and chief operating officer, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.“While we have been approached by other airlines before, this arrangement with Lufthansa made strategic sense because both brands are committed to serving up a quality experience for their top tier of customers.
