It could have been much worse Authorities identify Brussels train station attacker

Image: Virginia Mayo Jun 21st 2017, 4:40 PM Updated 4.40pmBELGIAN SECURITY FORCES have identified a man who set off an explosion at a Brussels train station before he was shot and killed, Interior Minister Jan Jambon said this morning.“The terrorist’s identity is known. We have been able to identify him,” Jambon told RTBF television.Authorities confirmed that the 36-year-old man, identified only as O.Z. detonated a nail bomb in a suitcase while among a group of passengers in one of the busiest train stations in Brussels yesterday.The suspect, from the largely immigrant Brussels neighbourhood of Molenbeek which has been linked to a number of previous attacks, was not known to police for terrorism offences.Belgian soldiers shot dead the suspected bomber, who set off the small explosion at Brussels Central.It happened at around 8.30pm (7.30pm Irish time) in one of the main corridors of Brussels Gare Centrale, or Central Station.“It could have been much worse,” Belgian federal prosecutor’s spokesman Eric Van Der Sypt told a news conference.It is clear that he wanted to cause more damage than he did.Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said a “terrorist attack has been prevented” in the city that hosts the EU and NATO headquarters.But he said that while security would be stepped up, the country’s terror alert level would be kept stable.“We are not allowing ourselves to be intimidated by terrorists,” he added.“Nails and gas bottles”He entered the station and twice approached a group of around 10 passengers, the second time standing in the middle of them, prosecutors said.According to a witness the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) before blowing up a wheeled suitcase. Belgian media also reported that he was wearing some kind of suicide vest, but this was later said not to be the case.Pictures on social media showed what appeared to be a small ball of flames.“He grabbed his suitcase while shouting and causing a partial explosion. Fortunately nobody was hurt,” Van Der Sypt said.“The suitcase immediately caught fire. The man then left his luggage burning and went down to the platform in pursuit of a station master. Meanwhile the bag exploded a second time more violently. This bag contained nails and gas bottles,” he added.Soldiers, who have been guarding the station following the March 2016 Brussels attacks, then shot the man, “neutralising” him, prosecutors said. He was later confirmed dead.There were no other casualties.Central Station is one of the three main stations in the Belgian capital, along with Gare du Midi and Gare du Nord.Belgium’s national crisis centre said it was keeping the country’s terror level at three out of four, adding that there was no immediate information to suggest that another attack was imminent and that it should be raised to the top level.Reporting by – © AFP 2017Read: Constable charged with having indecent images of children is dismissed from Met PoliceRead: Prime Minister demands ‘immediate answers’ as forest fires continue to rage in Portugal ‘It could have been much worse’: Authorities identify Brussels train station attacker Prime Minister Charles Michel said a “terrorist attack has been prevented”. 40 Comments A Belgian Army soldier at the station this morning. last_img read more

Ravn Outlines Safety Improvements As NTSB Pushes For Investigation

first_imgThe National Transportation Safety Board took the unusual move last month of asking the Federal Aviation Administration to investigate the Ravn family of companies.Download AudioA report says Hageland failed to achieve safety outcomes, at the time losing operational control and launching flights without proper oversight. The company’s CEO says the report does not reflect the changes Ravn has made in recent months.Wreckage of the Cessna 208 that killed two pilots in April. (Photo courtesy of the Alaska State Troopers)The FAA says it already was looking into the companies before the NTSB issued its request. Still, the board wants a hard look at the airlines, citing 6 accidents over the past two years, including two fatal crashes in the Y-K Delta. Bob Hajdukovich is President and CEO of Ravn. He says the report is a step behind the company’s efforts.“Everything that is requested for in the letter has already happened or is in the process of happening, so really, what was the purpose of the letter?” Hajdukovich said.The NTSB says an inadequate risk assessment program may have played a role in the crash that killed four people in a Cessna 208 outside St. Marys in November. The agency says that flight is among many Hageland allowed to launch without knowing or addressing some risks.Hajdukovich says since January, that process of deciding whether it’s safe to fly was made in tandem with a central control center in Palmer. Before, flights were release based out of hubs like Bethel or Nome.“I think when you have a local control there is the potential for making more of an economic risk assessment as opposed to a pure risk assessment,” Hajdukovich said. said. “So in other words, that person on the ground in Bethel can be impacted by 300 people in the lobby, 20,000 pounds of mail, or bad weather. So there’s always a tension that’s there that you don’t want to be there when you’re truly trying to analyze the risk of the flight.”The NTSB held off on making their recommendation after the operational control center was in place. But after two pilots died on a training flight in April, the agency moved ahead.Hajdukovich lists millions of dollars in improvements at Era Aviation, now named Corvus Airline, which carries flights with 10 or more passengers. He adds Hageland is seeking 5-star rating in the Medallion Foundation safety program, which exceeds FAA regulations. In any case, Hajdukovich says safety is the top priority.“That’s not a long term strategy to hurt airplanes or certainly hurt our customers so we’re going to take every opportunity to improve our safety systems,” Hajdukovich said. “We have humans behind the wheel, and we have customers that can also be a part of our safety system. They should report that they were in bad weather and they didn’t think the pilot should be there. They should report that. They shouldn’t be so hungry to get home that they are part of that pressure pot, that pressure cooker,”The FAA says it will formally respond within 90 days. They report having increased surveillance since 2011 and had a team on site last week.last_img read more

Sooryavanshi All is not well between Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar courtesy

first_imgAfter the phenomenal success of Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba, the audience can’t help but desperately wait for Rohit Shetty’s next cop action – Sooryavanshi. Starring Akshay Kumar, the film is expected to have cameos by Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn.A number of A-list names were floating around as who would be cast in the film as the female lead opposite Akshay and the latest we hear is that Katrina Kaif has finally been zeroed in for the film. As per a report by Pinkvilla, Katrina Kaif has been brought on board on Akshay Kumar’s insistence, though Rohit Shetty was not totally in agreement with the whole idea. Yes, you read it right. Rohit Shetty wanted to cast some other actress for the part in the film but, Akshay Kumar, who has given a number of hit films with Katrina Kaif like Namastey London and Singh is King was adamant on Katrina being brought onboard.And, Rohit Shetty finally agreed. The report states that Rohit Shetty and Akshay Kumar even had a slight tussle over the matter but now all of that has been put aside to focus on the film.Prior to that, Katrina Kaif would be seen with Salman Khan in Bharat which also stars Jackie Shroff and Disha Patani. Earlier, Priyanka Chopra was supposed to play the part but owing to her sudden engagement and wedding, the diva had to back out of the project at the last minute.Reports of Salman Khan having paired up with Katrina Kaif for the third instalment of the ‘Tiger’ franchise was making news recently. On the other hand, Akshay Kumar’s Kesari has been raining moolahs at the box-office and has been declared a hit by critics and audience alike.last_img read more

News • Photos of the Week Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,APEX, N.C. (RNS) — On a Tuesday evening under the roof of a public picnic shelter, a group of women ages 20 to 55 groaned through a series of high-intensity exercises in the 88-degree heat and humidity.Cheered on by their leader, who yelled, “you’re getting stronger,” and, “you’re going to feel like Popeye,” the women press on with  jumping jacks, burpee box jumps and a set of other cardio exercises with inventive names: “dying cockroach,” “ski moguls,” and “sparky crabs.”But the intensity of the boot-camp-like drill ended on a quieter, more reflective note 45-minutes later as the women came into a circle, their faces still flush from working out, to close with a prayer: “Lord, thank you for the time we’ve been able to be together and just exercise,” said Julie Swift, one of the women. “Please bless all these ladies and sustain them through their week. In Jesus’ name we pray.”After a unison “amen,” they roll up their mats, give each other a hug and head home — until the next workout.A host of modern exercise groups have sprung up in the last decade that aim to create fitter bodies, minds and hearts: CrossFit, SoulCycle, Pure Barre, Orangetheory. Stephanie Walton demonstrates a plank exercise for Females in Action workout participants in Apex, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronAll promise to empower, strengthen and transform while creating a sense of community.The latest is Females in Action, a Southern-style fitness program designed to make women stronger and develop friendships. The FiA brand is the female equivalent to F3  —  its larger male counterpart, which aims to build men up through fitness, fellowship and faith.But unlike the for-profit studios that cater to urban millennials willing and able to pay $40 a class, Females in Action (like F3) is free. Workout sessions are peer-led. They most often take place outdoors, in public parks or school fields. And they typically end with a spiritual high five.“We are focused on fitness, but it goes beyond that,” explained Catherine Butler, who leads one of three Charlotte, North Carolina, FiA groups. “We are a community of women that lifts each other up.”Started six years ago, FiA has grown to 53 regional workout groups spread across multiple states but heavily concentrated in North and South Carolina. Many are located in the suburbs and appeal to churchgoing working women whose husbands oftentimes participate in the male counterpart. FiA estimates 5,700 women work out at its exercise sessions, and many say the biggest draw is the camaraderie and support the women offer one another.“There’s nothing ever negative here,” said Caroline Uenking, 20, who accompanied her mother, Heather, to a recent workout. “It’s all positive.”Caroline, who has some problems with her calves, and Heather, who has a hard time touching her toes, are never singled out, they said. Instead, they’re  encouraged to do what they can, altering a particular exercise to meet their abilities.Like the F3 male-only version from which it borrows extensively, the workouts have a certain military style that stems from one of its founders, David Redding, a former member of the Green Berets. Although some workouts incorporate yoga and others running, the typical session features aerobic exercise sets in which participants push themselves as hard as they can, rest and repeat.In keeping with military nomenclature, participants are required to have nicknames, too. Stephanie Walton, the leader of the Apex group, is known as Peachtree; Janice Azeveda, who leads a group that meets in Cary, is known as Van Gogh.But although the exercises are hardcore, the female-only environment makes it more inviting for some women.A list of exercises drawn up by Stephanie Walton who leads the Females in Action workout in Apex, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronSwift, 55, said she felt overwhelmed attending gym classes alongside men.“I would prefer women who can influence each other,” she said.The gender restriction may be part of FiA’s more traditional appeal. If some of the newer fitness center brands draw millennials with no particular faith, FiA draws people who tend to be more religiously conventional.Though not explicitly Christian, FiA promotes the idea of a belief in a higher being, whatever that might be called (a formula that also echoes the second Alcoholics Anonymous step, “We came to be aware that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity”).Walton, a mom now studying for a degree in health and fitness science, said FiA made her a better person.“Since I’ve been doing FiA I’ve been going to church more,” she said. “I’ve been doing more soul-searching. It’s just part of it. You start caring about people. You see their children being born. You do things for their husbands when their husbands are sick.”Not everyone in F3 is religiously devout, and not all sessions end in prayer. But the group leader, called a “Q,” is expected to end each workout with what’s called a “Circle of Trust,” intended as a short time to reflect.Azevedo, who leads a 5:30 a.m. workout in nearby Cary, tends to keep things strictly nonsectarian. She concluded a recent session by reading a quote from personal coach Cheryl Richardson about the importance of self care. A 58-year-old preschool teacher, Azevedo said she nearly fainted the first time she attended a FiA workout. She was never very athletic, she said, and gyms did nothing for her. “If you decide not to go, nobody at the gym is going to say, ‘Hey, I missed you. Where were you?’” she said. “With this particular group, if you’re not there, somebody checks in with you and asks, ‘Are you OK?’ That’s a beautiful thing, having relationships of support. That’s really important.”Through FiA, she’s lost weight and gained muscle. Best of all, FiA empowers women and cheers them on.“It’s a life-changing group,” she said. “Physically you change because you’re taking care of your body. Mentally you change because you’re meeting new people and establishing new relationships and spiritually you change because you’re taking time out to reflect on your life. It’s a good thing.” Share This! Boy’s removal from church service spurs debate in UK on welcoming those with aut … Share This!

How HarveyAffected Kids In Jail Or On Probation Are Getting Help In

first_imgOne reVision case manager reconnected a detained minor with his mother who had lost everything and temporarily relocated to a county more than 150 miles away. The group was able to get her a bus ticket so she could attend his court hearing last week, and he was released to stay with his adult brother. If she hadn’t been able to make the hearing, her son would have stayed in the detention center, Rotramel said.“If we cannot reunify these families, then there’s no path for the judge or probation department to release them because there’s no one to release them to, and so that will lead to longer-term incarceration as well as just an unknown path,” Rotramel said, adding that minors are sometimes released to Child Protective Services when guardians can’t be reached.But Rotramel hasn’t seen that happen with his Harvey clients. Judges and probation officers have been pretty lenient amid the chaos caused by Harvey, he said. They’re more likely to go easy on a minor who missed a couple days of school or a meeting with a probation officer if the child’s family is suddenly homeless.Gonzales of the probation department agreed that probation officers have been understanding about the extenuating circumstances. And though hearing deadlines were probably missed in the days before floodwaters receded, judges and prosecutors have been pushing to get more minors released from detention faster after the storm, said Hans Nielsen, who heads the juvenile division of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.“I know that the judges all worked to try to get as many kids out of detention afterwards because of the situation,” Nielsen said. “Once we got back to having court, [prosecutors] said, ‘Look, we just need to … prioritize the cases and not hang on to certain cases that are less serious.’”Jolie McCullough / The Texas TribuneDiane McCoy and her mother, Janice Stubbs, talk to their reVision case manager in a Days Inn hotel room they have been living in for a week on Oct. 17. The family’s home was flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and McCoy’s 13-year-old son is on juvenile probation.Stubbs, her daughter, and her three grandsons — the youngest of which is on probation — left her family home the day before the storm hit and are now living in a Days Inn, about a 10-minute drive away.They all moved in a couple weeks ago when federal aid money came through. Even though it’s hard, Stubbs’ daughter, Diane McCoy, said it’s at least better that the family is together again. Before they checked into the hotel, McCoy’s youngest sons were staying with friends. “It’s best for me and my boys because … I’m all they got, me and their grammy,” she said, lounging on the hotel bed while her sons were at school. She was surrounded by random belongings spread throughout the room — a TV in a chair, an iron on the sink. Share Jolie McCullough / The Texas TribuneRon Williams, an outreach worker at Houston reVision, pulls supplies from a stockpile of donations to bring to a Harvey-displaced teen on probation on Oct. 17, 2017.Jolie McCullough / The Texas TribuneWalking through the shell of her Harvey-damaged house, Janice Stubbs choked back tears while talking about how her 13-year-old grandson was handcuffed and escorted out of her home this year.When he was 11, he had busted the nose of another student at school, his mother said, and the police got involved. The courts took a while to resolve the case, but he was picked up in May, held overnight and placed on juvenile probation.“That was so hard. I almost burst out crying,” Stubbs said last week as she surveyed her torn-up floors and exposed wall beams in the eastern Harris County house she has called home for 57 years.On top of dealing with sudden homelessness, the family still has to make sure Stubbs’ grandson attends school every day, goes to a weekly workshop and regularly checks in with his probation officer. Otherwise, he could face increased supervision or be held at the juvenile detention center. Her reVision case manager, Ron Williams, had come by to drop off some supplies. He handed over a bag filled with clothes for her sons, canned food, toiletries and a jug of water. He doled out a couple of gift cards so she could buy more necessities. The hope is this short-term stability will help keep McCoy’s son on the right track. The next step is to get him a mentor, Rotramel said. McCoy said reVision has helped her a lot, but life post-Harvey is still hard. Several times she mentioned how she wanted to be able to cook for her family.“It’s miserable. We’re staying in a room, can’t cook, can’t do none of that, clothes have to go to the wash,” she said. “We’re used to doing this at home.”In the van after leaving the family’s hotel room, Williams pondered her cooking problem behind the wheel.“I’m thinking about getting her a hot plate,” he said. “I’m not a shopper myself, but I’m just going to go up to WalMart. Do they sell them there?” The teen is one of dozens of minors in the county’s juvenile justice system who has been labeled severely affected by Hurricane Harvey, a storm that dumped up to 50 inches of rain in parts of southeast Texas and flooded much of the region. Staff and detainees were stuck for days. Many in detention lost contact with evacuated family members. Some on probation lost their homes.It can be harder to get to school when you’ve lost your home and belongings, and it can be difficult to control your frustration when you don’t know what happened to your family. For reasons like this, a local youth mentor group has paired up with the Harris County juvenile justice system to offer support for kids both in detention and on probation. They’re working to connect kids to their displaced families, get guardians to court hearings and hand out food and clothing to families who are starting over.“Our ultimate concern is these kids are set up now to fail,” said Charles Rotramel, CEO of the mentor group, Houston reVision. “If they were already struggling, they were already on the edge, and now … they lose everything … you’re adding risk factors onto other risk factors. They’re likely to get locked up again and end up in prison.”The Harris County Juvenile Probation Department, which also oversees the juvenile detention center, referred to reVision 65 children who have been deeply impacted by the storm. The department’s assistant executive director, Henry Gonzales, said reVision’s help was key in the storm’s aftermath.“Our concern was more of the kids’ safety during all of this, and not really realizing how it was impacting the kids with them not knowing or hearing from their family,” he said. “ReVision’s willingness to step in and do stuff like that was wonderful.”Jolie McCullough / The Texas TribuneJanice Stubbs holds back tears speaking of the day her 13-year-old grandson was taken away in handcuffs from her house — the same house that flooded months later during Hurricane Harvey and displaced her family.Support came in different ways for each kid, Rotramel said. The faith-based nonprofit collected enough clothing, food and other necessities to fill multiple rooms at their southwest Houston headquarters, and case managers have been dropping off care packages and department store gift cards to the children’s families who have been displaced.last_img read more

Texas Lt Gov Dan Patrick Offers 10 Metal Detectors To Santa Fe

first_img Share Gabriel Cristóver Pérez/KUTTexas school administrators and law enforcement leaders meet for a round table discussion with Governor Greg Abbott and other state politicians to kick off a three-day series of round table discussions at the State Capitol focusing on school safety in response to the recent Santa Fe High School shooting.Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said he would donate ten more metal detectors to improve security district-wide at Santa Fe Independent School District in addition to detectors offered by one company after the shooting that left ten dead in May.Parents asked the Santa Fe school board to install detectors last week at the first board meeting since the shooting, but the district still has yet to decide if it will use the machines. Along with the donation, Patrick said the Texas Senate would create a matching fund program for other schools that want to install their own metal detectors. In a press release, Patrick said schools that install detectors or buy detection wands before next legislative session will be reimbursed retroactively through that program.Those new security protocols will be in place before the start of the school year, pending district approval, Patrick said.Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneLt. Gov. Dan Patrick speaks at the Republican Party of Texas convention in San Antonio on Friday, June 15, 2018.“Santa Fe parents have asked for immediate action to secure the entrances to their schools and I want to make sure that if the Santa Fe ISD School Board wants to install metal detectors they can do so,” Patrick said in a statement.Patrick’s announcement fits with a broader strategy from Texas Republicans, who in the wake of the fatal May 18 shooting and a fall 2017 shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs have focused on making schools and other public venues less vulnerable as targets. In May, Gov. Greg Abbott laid out a 40-page plan for protecting schools; his pitches ranged from increased mental health screenings to new emergency safety measures to a few, narrow gun-related proposals, including consideration of a “red flag” law in Texas that would allow local officials to seize weapons from individuals declared dangerous by a judge.Patrick, who presides over the Texas Senate, also pledged Monday that in the next legislative session, the upper chamber would create a matching fund program to support installing metal detectors in other school districts. That program will include reimbursements for school districts that purchase such protections before the next session begins.In the immediate wake of the shooting, Patrick drew rebukes and mockery for saying “there are too many entrances and too many exits” to Texas schools. Experts said that schools have long been designed with such safety concerns in mind.“On the day of the shooting in Santa Fe, I made securing the entrances and exits to our schools a top priority,” Patrick said Monday. “Santa Fe parents have asked for immediate action to secure the entrances to their schools and I want to make sure that if the Santa Fe ISD School Board wants to install metal detectors they can do so.”Patrick also said Monday he supports increasing funding for an existing state program that arms school personnel. He has also charged a select committee within the Texas Senate to study school safety.last_img read more

Orange Proposes Free Community College for Residents

first_imgD.C. Council member Vincent Orange (D-At Large) recently introduced the Community College for All Scholarship Act.D.C. Council member Vincent Orange (D-At Large) on Feb. 3 introduced the “Community College For All Scholarship Act of 2015.”  The legislation establishes a program to provide free tuition and fees at the University of the District of Columbia Community College, informally known as UDC-CC. Orange’s bill mirrors President Obama’s Jan. 9 proposal offering free community college to students maintaining a 2.5grade point average and studying at least half-time.“President Obama has already made the goal of a community college education a national agenda,” the council member said. “Access to a quality education should be inclusive, not exclusive. All District residents should have access to a quality college education.”The University of the District of Columbia (UDC) is the only public higher education institution in the city. The university consists of the community college, undergraduate, graduate, and the David A. Clarke School of Law, educating approximately 5,500 students.Orange’s bill states that students could attend UDC-CC free if they maintain a 2.0 GPA, complete their studies in two years, and engage in community service and mentoring.  Tennessee, under its landmark Tennessee Promise program, and the city of Chicago, with its Chicago Star Scholarship initiative, have instituted free community college programs for qualified students. New Jersey’s NJ Stars program, offers up to five quarters of a free community college education in the state for students who graduate in the top 15 percent of their high school class. In Maryland, there are no bills before the Maryland General Assembly supporting free community college in the state, but Sen. Lisa Gladden (D-Baltimore) has legislation permitting graduates of Baltimore City high schools to attend Baltimore City Community College free.Dr. Bernie Sadusky, executive director of the Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC), embraces Obama’s idea. “The fact that 80 percent of all future jobs in Maryland will need workers with the education levels that community colleges provide, coupled with economist’ assertions that high student debt levels can limit local economic growth, mean that it is time for new approaches to developing Maryland’s 21st century workforce,” Sadusky said. “Community colleges are uniquely positioned to meet this challenge. Moreover, the MACC is ready to work with state and federal agencies to design a free post-secondary tuition program that would achieve state and national educational and workforce development goals.”Orange’s bill was co-introduced by D.C. Council members Elissa Silverman (I-At Large), Yvette Alexander (D-Ward 7), Anita Bonds (D-At Large), Jack Evans (D-Ward 2), Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), Mary Cheh (D-Ward 3), and Brianne Nadeau (D-Ward 1). “Today’s introduction by a majority of the council signifies that this council is dedicated to educating our residents,” Orange said.D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) referred the bill to the Committee of the Whole and a hearing date had not been set at AFRO press time.Michael Rogers, the vice president for institutional advancement at UDC, said that while university officials are aware of Orange’s bill, they have not responded to it, yet. “We are going to look at the bill and talk it over with our board of directors to see what happens next,” Rogers said.Jacque Patterson, an advisory neighborhood commissioner in Ward 8, engaged in the city’s educational issues, said free community college would be great for residents. Patterson notes that the city is financially sound with its latest projection of a $203 million surplus by the Fiscal Year 2014 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report released last month, and some of those funds could be used to pay for Orange’s program.“The city can definitely afford it,” Patterson said. “When people are educated, it helps our economy grow.”Patterson said there are other ways the city could fund the program. “The D.C. Chamber of Commerce could possibly get behind a small tax on businesses that would pay for free community college,” he said. “I think our business community can afford a two percent tax increase when they will be getting well-trained workers in return. We tax businesses in the city to pay for stadiums, why not pay for an education for residents?”last_img read more

More British soldiers committed suicide in 2012 than died in Afghanistan

first_imgNo related posts. LONDON – A total of 50 serving and veteran British soldiers committed suicide last year, more than were killed fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan, according to figures reported on Sunday.The Ministry of Defense confirmed that seven serving soldiers killed themselves in 2012 and a further 14 died in suspected suicides, although inquests have not yet been held.An investigation by the BBC found that at least 29 veterans also took their lives last year. There are no official figures.A total of 40 British soldiers died in action in Afghanistan in the same period, while serving as part of a decade-long British deployment that reached 9,500 troops at its peak.Relatives of those who killed themselves told the BBC the military should do more to tackle post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and treat it like a physical injury.One soldier who committed suicide, Dan Collins, had twice survived being shot in Helmand, was blown off his feet by a roadside bomb and then witnessed a close friend killed in front of him.He was diagnosed with PTSD and given treatment, but after 10 months the army said he had recovered. He was later released back home and on New Year’s Eve 2011, he hanged himself.“You’ve got units for soldiers that are severely injured and they’re treated. You should have a unit for treating soldiers with PTSD,” said his mother Deana Collins.A spokesman for the Ministry of Defense said: “Every suicide is a tragedy and our thoughts remain with the families of all those who have sadly taken their own lives.“Mental health of our personnel and veterans is a top priority for the government, that is why we have committed £7.4 million ($11 million) to ensure there is extensive mental health support in place for everyone who needs it.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Partnering with a trusted company such as Del Monte is a privilege and we look forward to working together to deliver the highest quality bananas.”Research indicates that bananas are the number one planned produce purchase as well as the top supermarket impulse buy, and displaying the preferred color bananas turns shoppers into buyers, according to AgroFresh.It adds that an NPD Group study showed that nearly 50 percent of consumers prefer to buy bananas that are more yellow than green, and so RipeLock, by lengthening the time bananas are yellow, can result in higher sales.“Del Monte has always been committed to delivering fresh, premium quality bananas to our customers throughout North America. Now, with the collaboration with AgroFresh, we will have even more tools to support our customers and further improve their banana program,” said Emanuel Lazopoulos, Del Monte’s senior vice president of North America sales, marketing and product management.Narciso Vivot, retail solutions global director at AgroFresh, said: “While we will continue our independent efforts to expand RipeLock’s presence, we’re proud of this opportunity to partner with Del Monte to give more consumers the fresh and tasty yellow bananas they demand.”www.freshfruitportal.com You might also be interested in AgroFresh and Zest Labs partner on sales solutions … U.S.-based company AgroFresh Solution (NASDAQ: AGFS) has announced a collaboration agreement with Del Monte Fresh Produce to expand the reach of the RipeLock system for bananas in North America.The deal offers Del Monte, one of the world’s leading banana distributors, access to AgroFresh’s innovative technology for extending yellow life and delivering better quality bananas.RipeLock works with the banana’s natural ripening process, using a “two-part system to control respiration during transport, ripening and distribution”. This reduces weight loss and improves bananas’ appearance and taste, AgroFresh says.“Our demonstrated success in revolutionizing the apple industry has provided more people with healthy produce year round and helps to reduce food waste,” says AgroFresh CEO Jordi Ferre.last_img read more
