Monthly report shows Oregon jobless rate unchanged

first_imgPORTLAND — A state report says Oregon’s unemployment rate hasn’t changed.The monthly report released Tuesday by the state Employment Department said the jobless rate was at 8.4 percent in February, the same as in January. The rate has been within a range of about half a percentage point for more than a year.A year earlier the rate was 8.9 percent. The rate is based on a survey of households, and the figures are seasonally adjusted.The report said a federal government survey of employment showed the state added 6,800 jobs in February, all but 800 in the private sector. The state’s total nonfarm payroll employment is more than 1.6 million.last_img read more

Police arrest suspected shooter in South Beach murder

first_imgMIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – Police have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting a man in a South Beach alleyway, last month.According to a tweet from Miami Beach Police, 32-year-old Tyrone Jackson was taken into custody Friday in connection to the murder of 29-year-old Kamil Patel. Jackson faces a first-degree murder charge.His arrest comes two days after police arrested 31-year-old Jeremiah Dorvilus. Investigators said he drove the car used in Patel’s murder. He has also been charged with first-degree murder.Investigators said Patel was shot and killed as he and a friend walked down an alley between 14th Street and Española Way, Jan. 25.Surveillance video captured the victim and his friend leaving a bar and heading toward the alleyway.Another security camera showed a white sedan leaving the scene of the shooting. Police later found out this was the getaway car.Friends of Patel said he had recently moved to South Florida from Dallas and had accepted a position at Bal Harbour Shops’ Prada store. Loved ones said he was moving up the corporate ladder.Rodriguez said Jackson’s arrest is important for Miami Beach residents. “A tragic, senseless crime. In Miami Beach, we don’t have this type of crime often,” he said. “Crime in Miami Beach is down, actually. However, one murder is one too many. That’s what we had on the streets of Miami Beach, and that’s why 15 days later, we’re now able to bring those responsible to justice.” #Breaking: Tyrone Jackson is in custody. Located in the City of Miami and currently being transported to MBPD. https://t.co/BO27KswTPE— Miami Beach Police (@MiamiBeachPD) February 9, 2018Officials said Jackson was located in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood, Friday afternoon. He was taken to Miami Beach Police headquarters and is currently being questioned by detectives.Police said a Crime Stoppers tip led them to Jackson.Miami Beach Police officer Ernesto Rodriguez said the suspect has a lengthy rap sheet. “[He has] an extensive criminal past, a significant indicator of who this individual was,” said Rodriguez. “He had a distinct limp because he was previously shot with an AK-47. That’s something that actually helped our detectives in locating him.” center_img Detectives have not specified a motive for Patel’s murder.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Exclusive Best way to end dowry system is through education says Jabariya

first_imgChandan Roy SanyalPR HandoutActor Chandan Roy Sanyal, who had featured in films like Jaazba, Chef, Jab Harry Met Sejal among many others, is now going to be seen in Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra starrer Jabariya Jodi.In an exclusive interaction with International Business Times India, Chandan spoke about his role in the film, his experience of working with the two stars, what he feels about the practice of dowry quite common in Bihar and much more. The movie Jabariya Jodi is based on the custom of dowry in Bihar. The film is slated to be released on August 9.Below are the excerpts from the interview:IBT: Tell us something about your role in Jabariya Jodi.Chandan: Jabariya Jodi is basically based on a custom in Bihar where girl’s father invite goons to kidnap groom to get them married forcefully. We are a bunch of local thugs who do this. I am a part of the gang.IBT: How was the experience working with Sidharth and Parineeti?Chandan: This is the first time I am working with Sidharth and it was amazing. He is a very nice person and I really enjoyed working with him. I don’t have many scenes with Parineeti, but we had some light conversations and those were good. Jabariya Jodi posterPR HandoutIBT: What convinced you the most to accept the film?Chadan: I think it was a new idea and I have never done a film based on Bihar. Since my father is from Bihar, and I have good connection with the place and the language, I felt authentic to play the role.IBT: The film is based on dowry system. What do you think is the best way to end this practice or should be the punishment for men who demand dowry?Chandan: I think the best way to end this practice is through education. Such boys need to be taught by their own parents that they should earn their own money. I mean it is ridiculous to be asking a girl’s family to give money to buy stuffs like scooter, fridge, TV, etc. They should be taught that they can’t be marrying someone just for money. It is a criminal offence and should be dealt with strictest of the laws.IBT: There are laws against dowry already but still this practice continues, and the girl’s family also at times accept these demands instead of complaining.Chandan: Yes, they should complain too. Like I said, education that comes from school and colleges matters. The problem is this practice is very deeply rooted and it will take a while to change. However, things are changing now. During my growing days in the 90s, I used to see dowry fights and deaths even in my own neighbourhood. But I think with time, things are changing.IBT: Tell us something about your upcoming projects.Chandan: I am doing a show on the internet called Bhram. I am doing it with Kalki Koechlin, and we are shooting for it in Shimla. I am also reading some scripts, which appear to be exciting. Hopefully I will be signing a few ones soon.last_img read more

Abe eyes fresh term as Japan votes

first_imgJapan’s prime minister Shinzo Abe © delivers a speech during an election campaign in Tokyo. Photo: AFPMillions of Japanese braved typhoon conditions Sunday for a snap election likely to hand Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a fresh mandate to revive the world’s third-largest economy and press his hardline stance on North Korea.If pre-election surveys prove correct, Abe’s conservative coalition will cruise to a crushing majority to win a fresh term at the helm of the key US regional ally and Asian economic powerhouse.Polling stations opened across the country at 7:00am (2200 GMT Saturday) with voters battling high winds and driving rain as an election-day typhoon barrelled towards Japan.Analysts say that if the weather affects turnout, it is likely to benefit Abe, whose conservative voters are more determined, putting the nationalist blueblood on course to become the country’s longest-serving leader.“I support Abe’s stance not to give in to North Korea’s pressure,” one voter, Yoshihisa Iemori, said as he cast his ballot in Tokyo.“I’m focusing on this point for the election,” the 50-year-old construction firm owner told AFP.The near-constant drizzle throughout the campaign has not dampened the enthusiasm of hundreds of doughty, sash-wearing parliamentary hopefuls, who have driven around in minibuses pleading for votes via loudspeaker and bowing deeply to every potential voter.But with little doubt over the eventual result, the suspense lies in whether Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and its junior coalition partner will retain its two-thirds majority in the lower house.Such a “supermajority” would allow Abe to propose changes to Japan’s US-imposed constitution that forces it to “renounce” war and effectively limits its military to a self-defence role.Ballot boxes close at 8:00 pm (1100 GMT) when broadcasters publish generally reliable exit polls.‘We must not waver’Abe shocked Japan by calling the snap election a year earlier than expected, urging voters to stick with him in the face of what he termed the dual “national crises” of an ageing population and North Korean tensions.Pyongyang has cast a menacing shadow over the short 12-day campaign, after it lobbed two missiles over the northern island of Hokkaido and threatened to “sink” Japan into the sea.Nationalist Abe has taken a hawkish line during the crisis, binding Japan to the US stance that “all options” are on the table to counter Pyongyang’s nuclear threat and urging maximum pressure via sanctions.“When North Korea is purposefully threatening us and increasing tension, we must not waver,” an animated Abe stressed at his final campaign rally.“We must not yield to the threat of North Korea.”Observers say North Korea’s sabre-rattling has helped Abe, 63, as voters tend to plump for the incumbent at times of heightened tension.Weak oppositionDespite a clear lead in the polls, Abe enjoys only lukewarm support in the country and critics say he called the election to divert attention from a series of scandals that dented his popularity.Voter Etsuko Nakajima, 84, told AFP: “I totally oppose the current government. Morals collapsed. I’m afraid this country will be broken.”“I think if the LDP takes power, Japan will be in danger. He does not do politics for the people,” added the pensioner.But Abe faces a weak and fractured opposition in the shape of two parties that have only existed for a few weeks, the Party of Hope created by Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike and the centre-left Constitutional Democratic Party.Koike, 65, threatened to shake up Japan’s sleepy landscape with her new party, vowing to do away with old-school politics and vested interests.But after days of wall-to-wall media coverage for the former TV presenter, the bubble burst and Koike’s popularity ratings plunged, mainly because she declined to run herself in the election.“As it turned out, the Party of Hope is hopeless,” said Michael Cucek from Temple University.Koike herself was even in Japan on election day, choosing to visit Paris for an event in her capacity as Tokyo Governor.The centre-left Constitutional Democratic Party may benefit from her decline and could become the second biggest party.Abenomics: limited impactDespite the threat from North Korea, many voters feel the economy is a more pressing issue, as the prime minister’s trademark “Abenomics” policy has had limited success in returning Japan to its former glories.While the stock market stands at a 21-year high, the benefits have been slow to trickle down to the general public.“Neither pensions nor wages are getting better… I don’t feel the economy is recovering at all,” said 67-year-old pensioner Hideki Kawasaki.Abe has vowed to use part of the proceeds from a proposed sales tax hike to provide free childcare in a bid to get more women working but Koike wants to scrap the tax hike altogether.last_img read more

5 ridiculous console knockoffs you might get for Christmas

first_img 1 2 Though the world of video games is more prevalent than ever, there are still some older generations that never quite caught up. We all know there’s a strange market full of console knockoffs, and with holiday season in full swing, you might receive some less-than-desirable — though unintentionally hilarious — consoles from well-intentioned, though ultimately uninformed relatives.PX-3600When pictures of the PX-3600 (above) began appearing on the internet, people thought it might have been some hybrid system that was able to play both PlayStation and Xbox games. However, it turned out to be just a console knockoff that only played games built into it. A closer examination revealed that the controller ports are like the ones found in the Atari 2600. The console comes with two controllers — but for some reason, only one has a vibration feature — as well as one gun controller.The unit is made by Cheer-Tech Industries, so if you want to troll a friend for the holidays, go give the product page a visit.Super Megason IVThough the Super Megason IV looks like the original PlayStation, but the circular disc cover flips up to reveal a cartridge slot rather than an optical disc tray. Because a vertical cart slots into the unit, the disc cover doesn’t actually close all the way. The SMIV comes with two controllers, one cartridge, and a gun controller. The cartridge holds a bunch of little games rather than just one, including blatant ripoffs, such as Jewel Tetris 504 and Hurdls 202.The controller featured on the box actually isn’t the one that comes with the unit — it’s actually more reminiscent of a Sega Genesis controller with a six-button layout. Amusingly, the length of the gun controller’s cord is too short, forcing the player to sit right up in front of the screen, essentially defeating the purpose.The console was found for the low price of $6.63, but you’ll have to head to a market in Bahrain if you’re that serious about getting one.Mini Polystation 3Though it looks like a PlayStation 3, the MPS3 is actually quite small, with the controller easily fitting into the palm of your hand. Rather than a slot-loading tray for optical media, a little screen sticks out on which the games are displayed. The console has the games built in, featuring ones such as Soccer, Baseball, Submarine Invasion, and Space Guardian. The best part? The unit requires three AA batteries to operate.Check out this video review:Next page: More whacky consoles that would make for awesome trolling…last_img read more

Findings were presented at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Chicago.Over the last decade, flight surgeons and scientists at NASA began seeing a pattern of visual impairment in astronauts who flew long-duration space missions. The astronauts had blurry vision, and further testing revealed, among several other structural changes, flattening at the back of their eyeballs and inflammation of the head of their optic nerves. The syndrome, known as visual impairment intracranial pressure (VIIP), was reported in nearly two-thirds of astronauts after long-duration missions aboard the International Space Station (ISS).”People initially didn’t know what to make of it, and by 2010 there was growing concern as it became apparent that some of the astronauts had severe structural changes that were not fully reversible upon return to earth,” said study lead author Noam Alperin, Ph.D., professor of radiology and biomedical engineering at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Miami, Fla.Scientists previously believed the primary source of the problem was a shift of vascular fluid toward the upper body that takes place when astronauts spend time in the microgravity of space. But researchers led by Alperin recently investigated another possible source for the problem: cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the clear fluid that helps cushion the brain and spinal cord while circulating nutrients and removing waste materials. The CSF system is designed to accommodate significant changes in hydrostatic pressures, such as when a person rises from a lying to sitting or standing position. However, the microgravity of space presents new challenges.”On earth, the CSF system is built to accommodate these pressure changes, but in space the system is confused by the lack of the posture-related pressure changes,” Alperin said.To learn more about the role of CSF in spaceflight-induced visual impairment and eye changes, Alperin and colleagues performed high-resolution orbit and brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans before and shortly after spaceflights for seven long-duration mission ISS astronauts.They compared results with those from nine short-duration mission space shuttle astronauts. Using advanced quantitative imaging algorithms, the researchers looked for any correlation between changes in CSF volumes and the structures of the visual system.The results showed that, compared to short-duration astronauts, long-duration astronauts had significantly increased post-flight flattening of their eyeballs and increased optic nerve protrusion. Long-duration astronauts also had significantly greater post-flight increases in orbital CSF volume, or the CSF around the optic nerves within the bony cavity of the skull that holds the eye, and ventricular CSF volume — volume in the cavities of the brain where CSF is produced. The large post-spaceflight ocular changes observed in ISS crew members were associated with greater increases in intraorbital and intracranial CSF volume.”The research provides, for the first time, quantitative evidence obtained from short- and long-duration astronauts pointing to the primary and direct role of the CSF in the globe deformations seen in astronauts with visual impairment syndrome,” Alperin said.There were no significant post-flight changes of gray matter volume or white matter volume in either group of astronauts.Identifying the origin of the space-induced ocular changes is necessary, Alperin said, for the development of countermeasures to protect the crew from the ill effects of long-duration exposure to microgravity.”If the ocular structural deformations are not identified early, astronauts could suffer irreversible damage,” he noted. “As the eye globe becomes more flattened, the astronauts become hyperopic, or far-sighted.”According to Alperin, NASA is studying a number of possible measures to simulate the conditions that lead to VIIP and testing various countermeasures.Co-authors on the study are Ahmet M. Bagci, Ph.D., Sang H. Lee, M.S., and Byron L.

Israeli court sentences Palestinian protest leader

first_img Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day The court said he was convicted mostly on the basis of a confession given by a 15-year-old. The teen was interrogated without a lawyer present, his relatives and activists said.The case against him sparked European Union criticism of Israel’s policy of imprisoning Palestinian protest leaders.Many of those protests turn into clashes between stone-throwing youths and Israeli soldiers firing tear gas and rubber bullets. Typically, youths appear to act on their own, while protest leaders do little to halt them.Al-Tamimi said the sentence highlighted the “absurdity” of the case, matching the time he spent in prison before his 85-year-old mother suffered a stroke, prompting his conditional release in April.Al-Tamimi said he was at the mercy of statements taken from vulnerable youths interrogated by Israeli forces.“Any child who is threatened could say my name in any matter, and I’ll go back to prison,” al-Tamimi said after the trial.An Israeli military spokeswoman said al-Tamimi was also given a 17-month suspended sentence, but the term was canceled because of his clean prison record and “irregularities in the trial.”She was referring to the judge’s decision not to use evidence from two other Palestinians, including a 14-year-old, because of contradictions in their confessions. The spokeswoman spoke anonymously according to military regulations. Al-Tamimi is among several protest leaders arrested in recent years for organizing what Israel defines as illegal demonstrations. Rights groups say the arrests are an attempt to stifle expression. Those cases also relied on confessions from minors.In al-Tamimi’s case, evidence was chiefly taken from a confession by a teen relative who was detained after he was caught throwing rocks. Activists and relatives protested that a lawyer was not present when he gave his evidence.Israeli officials say the interrogations are necessary to quell violence. They say Palestinians are offered fair trials. Most Palestinians take plea bargains instead of going to trial, because few are cleared after a lengthy legal process.___Additional reporting by Diaa Hadid in Jerusalem.

Big Cities Small Home Price Gains

first_imgThe National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported metro market home prices rose 3.9% year-over-year, but at a slower pace than the previous quarter.Existing single-family homes had an average price of $254,800 in the first quarter, up from $245,300 from Q1 2018.The report adds that single-family home prices increase in 86% of markets last quarter, with 153 of 178 metro markets showing sale price growth compared to 2018. Additionally, 13 metro area had double-digit increases, which is a slight decrease from 14 markets in Q4 2018.“Homeowners in the majority of markets are continuing to enjoy price gains, albeit at a slower rate of growth. A typical homeowner accumulated $9,500 in wealth over the past year,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist.Total existing home sales, including single-family homes and condos, increased 1.2% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.2 million in the first quarter, which is an increase from 5.1 million in Q4 2018. That is 5.4% lower than the 5.5 million-pace in Q1 2018.The five most expensive metro markets in the first quarter were the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, California, market, where the average house price is $1.2 million. San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, California, came in at second at $930,000.The least expensive metro market in the first quarter was Decatur, Illinouis, with an average home price of $80,800.“There are vast home price differences among metro markets,” Yun said. “The condition of extremely high home prices may not be sustainable in light of many alternative metro markets that are much more affordable. Therefore, a shift in job search and residential relocations into more affordable regions of the country is likely in the future.”All regions saw a year-over-year decrease in existing home sales in Q1 2019, with homes in the West region 10.7% below a year ago, despite a 2.8% growth in Q1 2019.The report added the median income rose nationally to $77,752 in the Q1 2019, altNational family median income rose to $77,752 in the first quarter, while higher home prices caused overall affordability to decrease from last year. in Daily Dose, Data, Featured Share Big Cities, Small Home Price Gainscenter_img Existing Home Prices Home Prices Metro Metro Areas Metro Home Prices 2019-05-14 Mike Albanese May 14, 2019 588 Views last_img read more
