KUALA LUMPUR: A former second accused in the murder of deputy public prosecutor Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais told the High Court here today he did not know that there was a body in the drum when he was filling it with cement. G. Gunasekaran, 49, said he filled the drum with cement on Sept 4, 2015 and only knew there was a body inside it the following day. "On Sept 4, I filled the drum with cement. I realised about the body the next day, but did not lodge a police report," he added. He said this during cross-examination by lawyer V. Rajehgopal, representing M. Vishwanath, S. Nimalan, and S. Ravi Chandaran, three of the accused in Kevin Morais' murder trial. Gunasekaran, who is the 54th witness, was testifying in the murder trial which entered its 42nd day today. Gunasekaran, who is an unemployed, was called to testify as a prosecution witness after changing his not guilty plea to guilty on a charge of concealing Kevin Morais' body and disposing of the deceased's car.

The average PC user in the UK and US has a worrying amount of apps installed which are past their end-of-life date, and are therefore no longer patched or kept secure by the software vendor offering a potentially easy way for malicious parties to exploit the computer in question. This news comes from Flexera Softwares Country Reports, which uses data drawn from the firms Secunia Personal Software Inspector utility (in the last quarter of 2016) that indicates the average UK user has 72 programs installed on their machine and 6.7% of them are end-of-life (the figure was 7.4% in the US). So which are the most dangerous pieces of software based on Flexeras risk exposure assessment in the report? At the top of the list was Apple iTunes 12.x, followed by Oracle Java JRE 1.8.x/8.x and then VLC Media Player 2.

4 It might look similar from the outside, but the new Audi A5 Cabriolet is a marked improvement on the previous model. It’s more spacious and useable every day, quieter and more comfortable, plus it receives the same first-class cabin design as the coupe. It’s still not the last word in driver engagement, granted, but neither are its closest German rivals. On first impressions it has what it takes to give them a tough time. Model: Audi A5 Cabriolet Quattro Sport 2.0 TDI 190 Price: £42,625 Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl turbo diesel Power/torque: 187bhp/400Nm Transmission: Seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, four-wheel drive 0-62mph: 7.8 seconds Top speed: 144mph Economy/CO2: 60.1mpg/122g/km On sale: March

" Kawerak would "document as fully as possible from archival and other sources what is known about traditional beliefs, knowledge, and experience regarding the supernatural." The research also includes focus groups with community members about their "personal experience with the supernatural." Ultimately, the group was given $50,000 for the project in June 2016. Julie Raymond-Yakoubian, the head researcher on the study, said the project is "proceeding well and is still ongoing." Kawerak held a community meeting for the project in October on the supernatural environment, handing out door prizes to draw interest. The organization received $22.4 million from the federal government in fiscal year 2016, with the majority of funds going towards Tribal self-governance, Head Start, and renewable energy programs. Alaskan folklore includes stories of strange creatures, like the enukins , or "Little People," the "smallish, mischievous creatures of the night.

Top lawyers who helped the Obama White House craft and hold to rules of conduct believe President Donald Trump and his staff will break ethics norms meant to guard against politicization of the government — and they’ve formed a new group to prepare, and fight. United to Protect Democracy, which draws its name from a line in President Barack Obama’s farewell address that urged his supporters to pick up where he was leaving off, has already raised a $1.5 million operating budget, hired five staffers and has plans to double that in the coming months. They’ve incorporated as both a 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), allowing them to operate as a nonprofit but participate in some forms of political advocacy as well. While other Trump opponents focus on taking the president to court over the travel ban and deportations, the new group plans to drill into issues that arent already hitting the headlines, like potential intervention in and intimidation of regulatory agencies by West Wing staff.
