American scientists rescued from icebound Antarctic island

first_img Related National Science Foundation(BUENOS AIRES, Argentina) — A group of American scientists were rescued from an island off Antarctica’s coast after ice prevented a U.S. Antarctic Program research vessel from reaching them.The four U.S. scientists and a support staff member conducting research on Antarctica’s Joinville Island were airlifted by helicopter Sunday from an icebreaker ship dispatched by Argentina, said the National Science Foundation, which funds and manages the Antarctic program.The group is to be transferred Monday to the Laurence M. Gould research vessel, after which they will travel to Punta Arenas, Chile, on South America’s southern tip, according to Peter West, a spokesman for the foundation.Argentina sent the icebreaker ship after receiving a request for assistance on Friday, the country’s foreign ministry said Saturday. The Argentine ship has helicopters able to reach the group’s camp “regardless of the ice conditions,” according to the National Science Foundation, a U.S. government agency.The research team was “in no immediate danger, having more than a week’s worth of supplies, a safe camp, and communications with the outside world,” the foundation said Saturday.The research party, which was studying ancient climate, was led by Alex Simms of the University of California, Santa Barbara, according to the foundation. An employee of the foundation’s U.S.-based support contractor accompanied the group, the foundation said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more

NRA to host company with ties to sanctioned Russians at annual convention

first_img Related Amazon(DALLAS) —  An ammunition distributor with ties to a recently sanctioned Russian oligarch is listed among the expected exhibitors at the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meetings opening in Dallas, Texas, on Friday.TulAmmo USA is a private company headquartered in Round Rock, Texas, but sells small-arms ammunition manufactured by the Tula Cartridge Works in Tula, Russia, about 120 miles outside of Moscow. The factory, one of Russia’s oldest and largest arms plants, is tied to a number of entities and individuals who have been sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department, including Rostec, Russia’s state-owned defense conglomerate, and Igor Rotenberg, an oligarch who was recently targeted alongside several other allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin.This year’s convention, always a political spectacle, comes as the NRA’s connections to Russia have become the focus of media attention amid a Senate inquiry into allegations that Russian agents may have tried to use the gun-rights group to gain access and influence in U.S. political circles, but TulAmmo USA’s presence raises a somewhat different set of concerns.“I suspect TulAmmo USA has stayed on the right side of U.S. sanctions laws,” said Peter Harrell, a former senior State Department sanctions official who is now an adjunct senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. “But there is something deeply troubling about a Russian arms maker — one that makes Russian military assault rifles and anti-tank missiles — profiting by selling ammunition in the U.S. The fact that a portion of those profits flow to some of Putin’s closest cronies makes the situation even more problematic.”In an interview with ABC News, TulAmmo USA CEO Ed Grasso confirmed that the company is a distributor for the Tula Cartridge Works but described it as a “completely separate entity” with a legal business arrangement to buy ammunition exported by the Russian factory for sale to consumers.“Tula Cartridge Works has been paid for the product they ship to the U.S. under licenses approved by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the State Department,” Grasso said.There are no Russian citizens or people from Russia serving as company board members or officers, Grasso said.The NRA did not respond to a request for comment.Harrell told ABC News that just because TulAmmo USA has managed to remain “just outside the penalty box” doesn’t mean their presence shouldn’t cause concern.“I also bet that the American sportsmen buying TulAmmo cartridges would be surprised to learn that they are supporting the same Russian military complex that supports Russian aggression in Syria, Ukraine and around the world,” Harrell said.According to its website, TulAmmo USA “represents the Tula Cartridge Works here in the U.S.,” which, unlike Russia, has a thriving consumer market for guns and ammunition.“The Tula Cartridge Works, founded in 1880 by Emporer [sic] Alexander II, is one of the most significant producers of small-arms ammunition in the world today,” the website reads. “Leveraging the production experience of nearly 140 years, and applying ever-evolving technologies and research knowledge, we continue to push the envelope on behalf of the American shooter.”Selling steel-cased ammunition from Russia is the majority of the company’s business and, according to its CEO Grasso, that business has grown rapidly over the last decade, thanks in large part to a symbiotic relationship with the American gun industry.“American shooters have become accustomed to the Russian ammunition,” Grasso said in an interview with SHOT Show TV in January 2017. “They find it working in their guns. We’ve had good cooperation from the U.S. gun companies. They’ve realized that having inexpensive ammunition that works across their product line allows people to shoot more ammunition, and when they have an option to shoot more ammunition, they might buy more guns, so it’s a partnership that’s worked so far.”The extent of TulAmmo USA’s relationship with the Tula Cartridge Works appears to be closer than the typical buyer-supplier relationship. TulAmmo USA and TulAmmo, its Russian counterpart, which lists the same address as Tula Cartridge Works, share a name, a logo and at least one former officer.Alexey Solovov, the factory’s onetime chairman who was convicted two years ago on fraud charges and given a three-year suspended prison sentence, appears to have also registered five patents for ammunition boxes, packages and clips on TulAmmo USA’s behalf between 2014 and 2016. Grasso told ABC News that Solovov is no longer involved with the company.Tula Cartridge Works is partially owned by a holding company called High Precision Systems that was established by the state military technology firm Rostec, which was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2014 and cut off from U.S. debt financing amid “continued Russian efforts to destabilize eastern Ukraine.”Igor Rotenberg purchased 46.176 percent of the Tula Cartridge Works in February 2017. He refused to comment on the deal at the time, but Vedomosti, one of Russia’s leading business newspapers, suggested that he may have been buying in ahead of an expected rearmament by Russia’s military, which was known to be preparing to replenish its ammunition stocks.The Rotenberg family’s ties to Putin stretch back decades. Igor’s father, Arkady, has been Putin’s close friend since childhood, when they were judo sparring partners, and Arkady has since amassed a multibillion-dollar fortune largely through state contracts, including the controversial effort to build a bridge between Russia and the recently annexed Ukrainian peninsula Crimea.Rotenberg acquired significant assets from his father and his uncle, Boris, after they were sanctioned themselves in 2014 for supporting Putin’s “pet projects by receiving and executing high-price contracts for the Sochi Olympic Games and state-controlled Gazprom.”This week, after being hit with sanctions by the U.S. himself, Rotenberg reduced his share in the factory to 20.23 percent, a move a manager from the factory told Vedomosti was intended to allow the company to keep exporting ammunition.Grasso told ABC News that he was aware of the sanctions against Rostec and Rotenberg but insisted the company has done its due diligence.“I’ve never delved into it, but Rostsec owns a lot of companies in Russia,” Grasso said. “I have been assured that [Rotenberg’s] ownership shares are no longer anything that we have to be concerned with.”TulAmmo USA, meanwhile, is poised to occupy a booth in Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center this weekend alongside hundreds of other approved exhibitors even as questions have swirled about whether Russians have attempted to use the NRA as a vehicle to influence the 2016 election.Grasso said TulAmmo USA has not made any contributions of any kind — political or otherwise — to the NRA beyond paying for a booth at the annual convention since 2011. It appears to have shared the group’s opposition to Hillary Clinton though. One of two “News” items listed on TulAmmo USA’s website is a sharp criticism of Hillary Clinton’s position on gun control and the “proudly anti-gun tenor” of the Democratic National Convention that nominated her.In January 2017, Grasso noted some relationship between business and politics in his industry.“I think there was [an increase in prices] at the retail level. I think you saw some buildup in pricing in anticipation of the election,” Grasso told SHOT Show TV. “I think they’ll stabilize over the next six months and get back to normal. It looks like we’re going to have a fairly normal year.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more

WTA chief backs Williams in sexism row [V]

first_imgThe WTA has backed up Serena Williams’ claim of sexism in the way she was treated by umpire Carlos Ramos during the US Open final.Williams was warned for coaching, then docked a point for smashing a racket before Ramos penalised her a game after she called him a liar and a thief.That left the 23-time grand slam singles champion one game from defeat and in tears, with Naomi Osaka clinching her first slam title shortly afterwards.Williams argued on court with tournament officials, claiming she was being treated differently to how a man would be in such circumstances, a theme she continued in her press conference.The American has received a lot of support from current and former players, and on Sunday night, moments after Novak Djokovic won the men’s title, WTA chief executive Steve Simon released a statement.Simon said: “Yesterday’s US Open final resulted in the crowning of a deserving new champion, Naomi Osaka. The WTA applauds Naomi for her tremendous accomplishment.“Yesterday also brought to the forefront the question of whether different standards are applied to men and women in the officiating of matches.“The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men vs. women and is committed to working with the sport to ensure that all players are treated the same. We do not believe that this was done last night.”Simon also called for coaching to be allowed during grand slam matches. Ramos penalised Williams after seeing her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, making a hand gesture. The Frenchman later admitted he was trying to coach his player.Simon continued: “We also think the issue of coaching needs to be addressed and should be allowed across the sport. The WTA supports coaching through its on-court coaching rule, but further review is needed.”Following the match, the United States Tennis Association, which runs the tournament, put out a statement from its president, Katrina Adams, hailing Williams for her “class” and “sportsmanship”.Appearing on ESPN, Adams also claimed there are double standards in terms of how umpires treat women and men.Adams said: “We watch the guys do this all the time, they’re badgering the umpire on the changeovers, nothing happens.“There’s no equality. I think there has to be some consistency across the board. These are conversations that will be imposed in the next weeks. We have to treat each other fairly and the same.“I know what Serena did and her behaviour was not welcome, a line could have been drawn, but when you look at Carlos in this situation, it’s a judgement call to give that last penalty because she called him a thief. They’ve been called a lot more.“(He could have said), ‘Hey, we’re getting out of hand here, let’s tone it down’. I think he would have (said that to a male player), I think it’s a bond that they have and they way they communicate, and maybe not understanding they can have that same conversation with the women.”Most bizarrely, Adams claimed that Williams had not expected her exchanges with Ramos to be filmed despite taking place in the middle of a grand slam final.Djokovic had sympathy for Williams in terms of the sanctions she was given but does not agree that women are treated differently from men.He said: “I love Serena, first of all. I really felt for her yesterday. Tough thing for a chair umpire to deal with, as well. We have to empathise with him. Everyone was in a very awkward situation. A lot of emotions. Serena was crying. Naomi was crying. It was really, really tough.“I have my personal opinion that maybe the chair umpire should not have pushed Serena to the limit, especially in a grand slam final. He did change the course of the match. We all go through our emotions, especially when you’re fighting for a grand slam trophy.“But I don’t see things as Mr Simon does. I really don’t. I think men and women are treated in this way or the other way depending on the situation. It’s hard to generalise things. I don’t see it’s necessary really to debate that.”Williams was fined a total of 17,000 US dollars, including 10,000 dollars for verbal abuse.last_img read more

Froome conquers China, eyes 5th Tour de France title

first_imgFroome, 32, won his fourth Tour de France this year and last month bagged the Vuelta, leaving only the Giro d’Italia as the last grand tour to elude his grasp.Winning it would make him just the seventh man to complete the career treble, but Froome declined to get ahead of himself.“The biggest thing for me at the moment will be to focus on the fifth Tour de France title and try to put everything into going for that,” he said.“But I fully appreciate just how hard that is. After winning four tournaments, its definitely not getting easier, that’s for sure.”“The level is just getting higher and higher every year.”Winning a fifth Tour title would put Froome in elite company, joining only France’s Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault, Eddy Merckx of Belgium, and Spain’s Miguel Indurain.Froome sparked a late surge from the pack along with Uran, Barguil and Spanish two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador, who put in a strong showing in one of his final races after recently announcing his retirement.The Shanghai race was staged for the first time as part of the Tour de France’s efforts to boost its brand in China, a country often called the “kingdom of bicycles”.The race involved 20 laps around a 3-kilometre (1.9-mile) street circuit, and was organised by ASO, the same company that holds the Tour de France.Bicycles have long been the workhorse of urban transport for China’s masses, but recreational cycling also is on the rise as incomes and leisure pursuits increase.The contest was held amid murky skies, however, with pollution readings in the “unhealthy” range.China’s notoriously smoggy skies are among factors blamed for slowing development of cycling and other outdoor pursuits.“Cycling at the moment is a very European-dominated sport so it’s great to bring cycling out to these places that don’t get to experience what Europeans get to experience on their doorstep,” Froome said.“So it’s great for the globalisation of cycling and of sports in general.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chris Froome of Britain (L) this year became the first rider since 1978 to win the Tour and the Vuelta a Espana double in the same year © AFP / STRSHANGHAI, China, Oct 29 – Chris Froome continued his dominant year by winning the China Criterium in Shanghai on Sunday, but the Briton admitted he faced an uphill task capturing a historic fifth Tour de France title.Froome, who this year became the first rider since 1978 to win the Tour and the Vuelta a Espana double in the same year, took the inaugural Shanghai race in a late sprint just ahead of Colombia’s Rigoberto Uran and Warren Barguil of France.last_img read more

One of six in the county, the system can do everything from track emergency vehicles and personnel to tap into live feeds from TV news helicopters. “It can use a land line, a cell or satellite,” Warm said. “It’s a one-touch system. It finds which link works for you.” Monday’s mission was to move key government personnel unable to use damaged freeways to their jobs in Los Angeles. Fairplex was their meeting point, and police and firefighters were ready. They coned off a secure area and set up registration tables as the landing helicopters kicked up a cloud of dust and gravel. While waiting for more Marines to arrive and play the role of stranded government workers, firefighters stepped up and received cards telling them their jobs and key skills, as well as any equipment they were bringing. They were entered into the mobile command system, which assigned them to a flight. “We’ll test this system to the max here,” Paulson said. Warm said the exercises – given the code name Golden Phoenix – are in response to the communication and organizational challenges that government agencies faced in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Whether the disaster is a wildfire, earthquake or a train derailment and chemical spill, agencies must learn to react quickly and act as one, he said. The exercises will continue through Wednesday, in locations including Los Alamitos. “Everyone learns to work together,” Warm said.

Trio robs jewelry store

Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WHITTIER – A trio of masked thieves made off with a “large amount” of jewelry and cash Tuesday after an armed takeover-style robbery at a jewelry store, officials said. The crime was reported just after 1 p.m. at Murray Brown Jewelers, 15344 Whittier Blvd., said Whittier police spokeswoman Diana Salazar. Two men and a woman, all wearing masks, entered the store and displayed at least two handguns before ordering the store’s owner and a customer to the back of the shop, said Salazar. The crooks then helped themselves to the goods in the display cases and fled in a Chevy HHR, she added. Two of the suspects were described as African-American males in their late 20s or early 30s wearing baggy blue jeans, said Salazar. One of them was about 6 feet tall, of a thin build, and wearing a white long-sleeve shirt under a second mesh shirt, she said. The other man was estimated at 5 feet 11 inches tall and wearing a white shirt, Salazar said. The female suspect was described as 5 feet 5 inches tall and wore a red shirt. Police declined to disclose the exact amount of money and jewelry obtained. last_img read more
