New AntiCorruption unit ready to tackle Govt complaints

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, June 27th 2017 – Nassau –It is official. The Commissioner of Police, Ellison Greenslade yesterday confirmed that a corruption unit within the Royal Bahamas Police Force, “the anti-corruption branch”, is now fully operational. The Commissioner said, “We did develop a unit to look at corruption issues,” adding also, “looking now at 11 separate files originating of various departments and various public operations.”Greenslade revealed that the anti-corruption unit is headed by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Paul Rolle, who will lead a team of several officers including a very well trained veteran detective at the Superintendent rank, as well as an authority at law.The special unit has already begun investigating 11 files, according to Greenslade and charges can range from stealing, misappropriation of funds and corruption.  This announcement also comes on the heels of the Minister of Works, Desmond Bannister’s question to the Attorney General to consider whether legal action should be taken against members of the former Christie-administration for abusing their legal authority.However, Greenslade explained, “when things are just allegations and no formal complaints are made, the Commissioner is in a very difficult position,” expounding on the fact that the new unit is yet to receive any official complaints from Government entities. The unit will focus on the Public and Private sector and is located on Nassau Street, just north of Meeting Street.Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher#MagneticMediaNews Recommended for you Related Items:#AntiCorruptionBranch, #magneticmedianews, #RBPF Royal Bahamas Defence Force Prepare Hurricane Shelter Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Grand Bahama Police report on crash landing off West End Bahamas Police makes $2.3M Drug Bust in Biminilast_img read more

Warnock confident despite West Ham loss

first_imgDespite losing 3-1 at West Ham on Tuesday, Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock believes his team can win games away from home and pick up points.Warnock remains defiant as the loss leaves them just two points outside the relegation zone.Joe Ralls missed a penalty to put Cardiff City ahead in the first half as Lucas Perez netted a brace to help West Ham to a 3-1 victory at the London Stadium.“Tonight showed we can win away games from home,” Warnock told Sky Sports.I pulled Manuel Pellegrini in the technical area and said: ‘how can we be losing 3-0’ – it was a mad 12 minutes, then the penalty miss.“If that goes in then you could sense the crowd was beginning to think it wasn’t going their way.“I refuse to criticize Ralls – he’ll get some stick from the fans but it takes guts to take a penalty. I can’t even watch one. I wouldn’t criticize him.declan rice, england, West ham UnitedReport: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year. The West Ham United man played for…“How can you legislate for two lads going for the same ball, there’s not a lot we can do. We work on these things in training.“It’s frustrating to concede goals that we’ve done all season not just tonight – you think we don’t work on it, we probably shouldn’t bother. It might work better than that.“We’ve shown we can compete. Tonight we looked a decent side. After we weathered the storm in the first 10 minutes, we played some good stuff.“It would have been interesting to see the penalty go in. It’s another disappointment for me, but I’m going to get those at my age.”last_img read more

No matter what happened the previous year – whether you won the cup or whether it brought you disappointment – it’s like a fresh start all over again and you’ve no idea who you’re going to get in the draw.

SoundCloud Profitability Will Take Years

first_imgNews SoundCloud: Profitability Will Take Years Twitter Email Facebook When Will SoundCloud Be Profitable? soundcloud-profitability-will-take-years A regulatory filing spells out the long road to profit that SoundCloud hopes to travelPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Sep 12, 2017 – 1:16 pm Streaming music is succeeding as top services Amazon Music, Apple Music and Spotify are adding millions of paid subscribers, but the struggle to get into the black and see profit is crucial, especially for the long-term survival of streaming service SoundCloud.An online platform that has helped new stars such as Chance The Rapper and Kygo rise to international prominence, SoundCloud is beloved but love won’t pay the bills. Investors came to its rescue in August to save the nearly shuttered service but SoundCloud’s millions of free users have diminished somewhat and the two tiers of SoundCloud Go premium have not reached the point where it’s profitable.Digital Music News uncovered a German regulatory filing spelling out the tough realities for SoundCloud moving forward. Converting free users to paid subscribers is SoundCloud’s road to survival. Depending on the rate of that growth, fresh investment could be needed “to generate sufficient cash to cover the planned expenditures.”Given the power and scope of the big-league majors, additional music subscriptions are most likely to be a second thought. But fans need to wrap their heads around supporting multiple premium services for many of their favorites to survive long-term.With August’s Investment, SoundCloud Fans Celebrate Its SurvivalRead morelast_img read more

I mention that simply because there’s a good chance this deal will sell out quickly, perhaps before the West Coast is even awake. But I have to share it, because it’s an all-time low on a popular product.Today only, and while supplies last, Woot has the Jabra Elite 65t true-wireless sport earbuds for $89.99, with free shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers.

However, it has definitely earned a place on the list of the best true wireless earphones, period.CNET’s David Carnoy first reviewed the 65t back in early 2018, and had this to say: “The Jabra Elite 65t are smaller and fit more comfortably than their predecessors. They sound excellent for truly wireless headphones, perform reliably and are great for making calls, with two microphones in each earpiece. Battery life is decent at 5 hours and the included charging case delivers two extra charges.”Granted, the landscape has changed quite a bit since then, but the 65t’s price hasn’t.

first_imgWhere is the VenkatalakshmiTwitterRaai Laxmi’s much-awaited film Where is the Venkatalakshmi (WITV) was leaked online on its opening day and the free download of the full movie is likely to take a toll on its collection at the box office.Raai Laxmi, who is known for her item numbers, had released her latest movie Where is the Venkatalakshmi on March 15.

Heres the firstever photo of black hole and it is undoubtedly stunning

first_imgYouTubeScientists at the European Space Agency have revealed the first-ever picture of a black hole, and as expected, it shows a dark blob surrounded by a ring of bright light. The research report of the study which is now available in the Astrophysical Journal Letters states that this black hole is located in a distant galaxy which is 500 million trillion kilometres away from us.Even though black holes are dark space entities that are not visible to any telescopes, experts have successfully captured the event horizon, which is actually the edge of the black hole where light cannot escape. Scientists made this milestone achievement using an array of event horizon telescope.Prof Heino Falcke, of Radboud University in the Netherlands, who proposed the experiment revealed that the first image of the black hole shows a very intense ring of fire surrounding a perfectly circular dark hole.”What we see is larger than the size of our entire Solar System. It has a mass 6.5 billion times that of the Sun. And it is one of the heaviest black holes that we think exists. It is an absolute monster, the heavyweight champion of black holes in the Universe,” Heino Falcke told BBC News.The researcher also added that the bright halo is primarily caused due to the superheated gas falling into the hole. It should be noted that this ‘ring of fire’ light is brighter than all the billions of other stars in the galaxy combined, and it is the main reason why it noticed the attention of human-made telescopes.Dr Ziri Younsi, a top researcher at the University College London revealed that this new picture of black hole falls in line with the popular depiction of these space entities.”Although they are relatively simple objects, black holes raise some of the most complex questions about the nature of space and time, and ultimately of our existence. It is remarkable that the image we observe is so similar to that which we obtain from our theoretical calculations. So far, it looks like Einstein is correct once again” said Younsi.last_img read more
