    Delta flight skids off LaGuardia runway, stops feet from frigid East River. (CNN)A Delta airplane slid off a runway late Thursday morning at New York's LaGuardia Airport, its nose busting through a fence before skidding to a halt mere feet from the frigid East River. Delta Flight 1086 briefly circled New York City due to issues with snow and ice before touching down shortly after 11 a.m., passenger Jared Faellaci told CNN. Almost as soon as it did, those aboard realized something was wrong -- the aircraft's wheels seemed to have little to no traction, sliding for about 20 seconds. "You didn't feel the wheels take," Faellaci said. Then it was a matter of "where we are going to end up," he said. About 4,500 to 5,000 feet down Runway 13, the MD-88 veered to the left and mercifully stopped on a small embankment. A little further, and the plane -- with 127 passengers and five crew members -- would have been in the icy waters rather than on the airport's snow-covered ground. Contrary to what Delta said in a statement, the aircraft's slides did not deploy, according to Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Executive Director Patrick Foye. Still, with help from first responders, everyone was able to get off and onto buses that took them to LaGuardia's Delta terminal. Video shows passengers exiting the plane into the sub-freezing temperatures, as emergency vehicles converged on the area. Twenty-four people suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Three of those were transported to nearby hospitals, New York's fire department tweeted.Delta flight skids off LaGuardia runway, stops feet from frigid East River.

  • Chan, Sukumaran executions may be delayed.
    THE executions of Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan could be further delayed, but Indonesia's president has said "no way" to a prisoner swap offer.
    THE Australians, now positioned on the island of Nusakambangan for execution, can't be executed this week as Indonesia's Attorney-General HM Prasetyo has not signalled their 72-hours notice period has begun.
    He also won't confirm they will be executed next week, telling reporters he wanted to be prepared for the smallest problem before the Bali Nine pair and up to eight others go to the firing squad for their drug offences.
    "About notification, it's a minimum three days before the execution," he said on Thursday.
    "It could be 10 days."
    His comments come after President Joko Widodo reportedly told an al-Jazeera reporter off camera that the executions would not be this week.
    Mr Joko on Thursday responded to a prisoner swap arrangement floated by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in her last push to save Chan and Sukumaran from the firing squad.
    Ms Bishop wouldn't detail the idea publicly but said it was relayed to her counterpart in Indonesia, Retno Marsudi, in a tense phone call.
    The president laughed when asked about a swap arrangement.
    "No way," he said.
    He was determined that Chan and Sukumaran be executed.
    "Look at how many die, our young generation,' he said, referring to victims of drugs.
    "We have to look at the future."
    The president said he hadn't spoken on Thursday to Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who has revealed he is seeking another telephone conversation.
    The Sukumaran and Chan families, who arrived in central Java on Thursday, will attempt to visit the men on Nusakambangan on Friday.
    But a friend of the death row inmate they are sharing a cell block with says access is difficult to negotiate.
    Ursa Supit, a supporter of Raheem Agbaje Salami, says the men are speaking to each other but can't see each other.
    She was able to meet the Nigerian in a small garden at Besi prison, where she found less security than she'd expected.

    Advantages of PVC card reader:
    1. One of the most important advantage of the card reader is PDP's 'power to the people' slogan. Finally power will be returned to the people to elect their leaders, first since independence.
    2. Presidency will hold less power among politicians, as the faith of politicians into elective offices will rest squarely on the people.
    3. Any Nigerian with exceptional character will be able to contest and win elections.
    4. The old nonperforming brigade will quickly shrink, collapse and be relegated to card carrying members of society.
    5. Election violence will become a thing of the past as it will be fruitless, election violence is used intimidate voters in the process of stealing and stuffing ballot boxes.
    6. Brave and courageous people like captain Sagir Koli who will go down in history as one of the most important people Nigeria ever produce will finally have the opportunity to lead Nigeria in any capacity they deem fit without have to sign contract, part-take in occultic agreement with godfathers.
    7. Epileptic power supply will be a thing of the past as politicians who failed to perform will be sent packing to their villages.
    Knowing how far we have come as a country no manner of excuse will be acceptable for failure.
    Nigerians we have come a long we, we have waited too long, we have been bruised, stolen from, beaten and killed by those "like Ekiti leaked taped vividly revealed" who because of lack of PVC card reader came to steal, kill and destroy. Lets band together and do the right as history becomes the judge. Those who have decided to remain silent because of regional politics do more harm to Nigeria than those who have come to steal, kill and destroy.

    Regular use of drug could lead to heart attack and stomach ulcer. The National Agency for Food Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said that the regular use of painkillers especially, paracetamols could lead to heart attacks, stroke and early death, The Guardian reports. According to a study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases journal, patients prescribed high doses of the painkiller for long periods were 63% more likely to die unexpectedly. There is also a 68% higher chance of having a heart attack or stroke and an almost 50% greater chance of having a stomach ulcer or bleed. Generally, Paracetamol is considered by doctors to be safer than Aspirin, which can cause stomach bleeds, and ibuprofen, which has also been linked to heart attacks and strokes. But in 2013, NAFDAC and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had alerted Nigerians that Paracetamol had been associated with risk of rare but serious skin reactions known as Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), and Acute Generalised Exanthematous Pustulosis (AGEP) which can be fatal. To this end, NAFDAC encouraged patients to report such cases to their health care provider, who will channel the complaint to the National Pharmacovigilance Centre, even as British researchers say the risks may have been underestimated and are calling for a major review to be conducted into the drug’s safety. Meanwhile, Philip Conaghan who led an extensive research conducted on patients who took Paracetamol daily observing its effects advised that patients being prescribed the drugs for long periods for arthritis or muscle and joint pain should talk to their doctors about alternative treatments, such as exercise.Regular use of drug could lead to heart attack and stomach ulcer.

    Case closed on Lupita Nyong'o's $150,000 Oscar dress. Police in California have closed the case on the mysterious disappearance of Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscars dress after the designers decided against pressing charges. The pearl-covered Calvin Klein frock worn by the 12 Years A Slave star to the recent Academy Awards ceremony disappeared from her room at The London West Hollywood hotel last month, and a massive police hunt was launched to recover the garment. Nyong’o’s gown, which was estimated to be worth around $150,000, later turned up in a hotel restroom, and authorities believe the person who took it dumped it after discovering it was worthless on the black market. A spokesperson for the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department has now confirmed the investigation is over because bosses at Calvin Klein have decided against pursuing a prosecution, telling New York Post column Page Six, “(The) manufacturers have taken possession of the dress and are non-desirous of prosecution. The case has been closed.”Case closed on Lupita Nyong'o's $150,000 Oscar dress.

    Kamanis deny ‘small’ Anglo Leasing felonies, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 5 – Father and sons Chamanlal Kamani, Deepak and Rashmi have denied conspiring to defraud the Government of Kenya of Sh10 billion through the infamous ‘Anglo Leasing’ deals of 2002 to 2004. The three who appeared before Chief Magistrate Hannah Ndung’u on Thursday pleaded “not true” to two counts of conspiring to defraud GoK and three counts of fraudulently acquiring public property through Sound Day Corporation, Apex Finance Corporation and Infotalent Limited. Rashmi and Deepak who were described on the charge sheet as “the beneficial owners” of Infotalent, are accused of receiving half a billion shillings from GoK without delivering services in a project code named E-Cops as it was for the computerisation of security, law and order systems and procedures for the Kenya Police. Chamanlal was separately charged with his two sons for fraudulently acquiring Sh121 million from the Ministry of Finance through Sound Day Corporation and Apex Finance Corporation “on the pretext that they were able to provide credit to the Government of Kenya for purchase of Security equipment under modernisation of police equipment and accessories project.” Their lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi described the charges as “small felonies,” and asked that his clients be released on reasonable bail terms given the three accused are members of the same family and it was coming “from the same basket.” “My lady if you look at the charges which my clients are facing, it’s not really that earth shaking as everybody was made to believe,” he submitted to Ndung’u. He also argued that the matter should be before the commercial courts and not the Anti-Corruption Court as it was a contractual dispute. Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko’s response was that “40 million Euros by any standard is an earth shaking matter,” and that the accused were properly before the Anti-Corruption Court given the fraud underpinning the charges against them. He also opposed Abdullahi’s application that Rashmi and Chamanlal not be required to deposit their passports with the court given the former is domiciled in Dubai and the latter’s advanced age, 87, and need for medical care in India. “If all those elderly and sickly persons were to be treated preferentially, then one can assume then that those who are of advanced age may have the motivation to commit crime. Besides, we have excellent doctors and hospitals in Kenya,” he countered. The Chief Magistrate agreed with him and directed that all three accused deposit their passports with the court. The fact that Kenya does not have an extradition treaty with the United Arab Emirates, she agreed with Tobiko, made it all the more imperative for Rashmi not to leave the court’s jurisdiction without its express permission. She did however grant the release of the three accused on bond with Chamanlal being given the option to pay Sh10 million in bond or an alternative cash bail of Sh2 million while Deepak and Rashmi were ordered to pay either Sh20 million in bond or Sh4 million in cash bail each, to secure their release. They are scheduled to appear before the Anti-Corruption Court for a mention on March 18 when Sound Day, Apex Finance and Infotalent have been summoned to take their pleas. Their co-accused and former finance Minister David Mwiraria is also expected to take his plea then after his lawyer Kioko Kilukumi informed the court on Wednesday that his client had been admitted to hospital following a hip replacement.Kamanis deny ‘small’ Anglo Leasing felonies, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 5 – Father and sons Chamanlal Kamani, Deepak and Rashmi have denied conspiring to defraud the Government of Kenya of Sh10 billion through the infamous ‘Anglo Leasing’ deals of 2002 to 2004.

    Teacher Jamshed Javeed jailed for Syria 'jihad' plan. A chemistry teacher who was poised to travel to Syria to fight with the group that became widely known as Islamic State has been jailed for six years. Jamshed Javeed, from Manchester, was "determined to fight jihad" despite pleas from his family not to, Woolwich Crown Court heard. Javeed, 30, who admitted terror offences, claimed in court he wanted to go to support ordinary Syrians. He was arrested in December 2013 hours before he was set to leave the UK. Javeed, a teacher at Sharples High School in Bolton, had been preparing to leave his home on Cringle Road, Levenshulme, after helping his younger brother Mohammed make the trip to Syria. The teacher's relatives initially foiled his plans by hiding his passport but he persisted even after learning his wife was pregnant. 'Martyr' aim Police found £1,490 in cash, thermal gloves and combat-style trousers in a rucksack during a search at his home. At an earlier hearing, Javeed admitted two counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terror acts but insisted he was travelling only to support the people of Syria, not to join Islamic State. But in sentencing him, Judge Michael Topolski said he was "not satisfied" Javeed had rejected "Isis's ultimate aims" and believed he remained "adherent to a violent jihadist mindset" and considered him "dangerous". He said by autumn 2013 he had "become sufficiently radicalised and committed to a violent jihadist ideology that you were part of a group of young men determined to travel to Syria to join Isis and to fight and die for them". Judge Topolski said: "I find that you were not planning to return to this country... but rather to die, if you could, as a martyr." He said Javeed played an "important role" in enabling his younger brother and three other men to travel to Syria to fight. "One of those young men is now dead. The other three are effectively missing." 'Intent on murder' During his trial Simon Denison QC, prosecuting, said evidence indicated Javeed was "intent on fighting with the terrorist group". He said: "It follows that the action he was intent on committing inevitably included acts of murder, using firearms and/or explosives." Judge Topolski imposed an extended sentence of nine years, comprising a custodial term of six years and an extended licence period of three years. Speaking after sentencing, Det Ch Supt Tony Mole from Greater Manchester Police said: "Javeed was an otherwise law-abiding man who had a responsible job, a child and another one on the way. "However, from August last year both his appearance and behaviour started to change and in a short space of time he started to support the Isis cause and those planning to travel to Syria. "He had bought equipment to take with him and had given money to help others travel there." Judge Topolski praised the "resolve and courage" of Javeed's family in attempting to scupper his plans. His family was also commended by Det Ch Supt Mole for taking "brave steps" to try to prevent him flying out to Syria before his arrest.Teacher Jamshed Javeed jailed for Syria 'jihad' plan.

  • Last Ebola Patient Is Released in Liberia.
    MONROVIA, Liberia — Liberia has released its last Ebola patient, a 58-year old English teacher.

    Beatrice Yardolo was released Thursday from the Chinese-run Ebola treatment center in the Paynesville district of Monrovia, the capital. On her way home she told The Associated Press she was "one of the happiest persons on earth today."

    Yardolo said had been admitted on Feb. 18.

    The head of the Incidence Management System, Tolbert Nyenswah, said there were no other confirmed cases of Ebola in the country. He said Wednesday that once the last patient is released, Liberia can then begin to count up to 42 days to be declared Ebola free in keeping with World Health Organization protocols and standards.

  • DHL to build $140 million express hub at Changi Airfreight Centre -
    SINGAPORE - DHL Express will be building a $140 million 24-hour express hub facility at the Changi Airfreight Centre by 2016.

    Jerry Hsu, CEO of DHL Express Asia Pacific unveiled the blueprint of the DHL Express South Asia Hub on Thursday.

    "The DHL Express South Asia Hub reinforces our global multi-hub strategy by leveraging the unmatched regional connectivity provided by Changi Airport and Singapore," Mr Hsu said.

    DHL Express has four hubs in Asia - Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore - with links to over 70 DHL Express Gateways within the region.

    "With the continued growth of the Asia Pacific economies, the South Asia Hub will provide the necessary logistics capabilities to support the growth of trade within the region," Mr Hsu added.

    The new South Asia Hub will occupy a land area of 26,200 square meters and have a total floor area of 23,600 square meters.

    It will also feature the first fully automated express parcel sorting and processing system in Singapore and South Asia. Upon completion, the facility will be able to handle a cargo throughput of more than 628 tonnes per day at full capacity, and process shipments at the speed of 14,000 shipments per hour.

    The manual processing system used currently can only handle up to 225 tonnes per day at a speed of 2,400 shipments per hour.

    Once the expanded South Asia Hub is completed, DHL will be able to support up to five times more flights in Singapore.

    Singapore Economic Development Board's Director for Logistics Lee Eng Keat said: "DHL's decision to locate its South Asia Hub here will help strengthen Singapore's position as a leading logistics hub and a practice-leader in automation."

    The new hub is part of DHL's plans to bolster DHL Express' network infrastructure in the region. Other DHL hubs being developed include DHL Express' Central Asia Hub in Hong Kong which boasts the region's largest throughput, the North Asia Hub in Shanghai Pudong International Airport, and a new gateway in Tokyo slated for completion in 2016

    Prisoner swap offer can’t spare Bali pair. INDONESIA’S security minister said today that Jakarta would press ahead with the execution of two Australian drug smugglers and other foreign convicts, ruling out an offer of a prisoner swap put forward by Canberra. “In accordance with the president’s order, the death penalty handed to the convicts will still be conducted,” Tedjo Edhy Purdijatno told reporters in Jakarta. Attorney-General Muhammad Prasetyo was also cited in local media rejecting the offer. “The offer is not balanced and relevant to what we are going to do,” he told the Tempo news website. He said that the foreign minister had told him about the offer, adding: “I said the offer was hard to fulfil and need not be considered.” Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop proposed the swap in an 11th-hour bid to save Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, the ringleaders of the so-called “Bali Nine” drug smuggling gang, who were sentenced to death for trying to traffic heroin out of Indonesia. The pair were moved yesterday to the Indonesian island where they are due to be executed and could face a firing squad within days. Kerobokan jail governor Sudjonggo said today that the removal of the Bali Nine duo from the jail had caused no disturbances among other inmates, Deborah Cassrels reports. Everything now was calm and ‘’under control, as before’’. ‘’Even the transfer process was peaceful. We just prepare with a lot of security in case there were any problems.’’ Any personal belongings of Sukumaran and Chan remaining could only be removed with Sudjonggo’s permission. ‘’I will only give authority to the consulate or families to pick up. ‘’ 6pm: INDONESIAN police are fending off criticism they treated condemned Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran like ‘tourist attractions’ on the flight from Bali to Java. Pictures have emerged of officers posing with Chan during Wednesday’s transfer to Nusakambangan, the island off central Java where, along with eight others, the two men are set to be shot by firing squad. The images have caused outrage among some media commentators, who say the incident has reduced a matter of life and death to a farce. Though the Indonesian police and military did their best to prevent the media getting images during the transfer, they had their own phones out in force, snapping pictures of the tragic pair. Senior Commissioner Djoko today rejected the claim that police had treated the Australian pair with disregard. He told a media outlet that he had been trying to raise Chan and Sukumaran’s spirits and had no idea the photo was being taken. Relatives of Chan and Myuran Sukumaran have arrived in Central Java to arrange visits to the men ahead of their executions, as Prime Minister Tony Abbott urged Indonesia to “pull back from this brink”. There is still no word on when the executions will be carried out.Prisoner swap offer can’t spare Bali pair.
