But on Wednesday two judges – a Cambodian and a German nationalthrew out the prosecution against her, ruling the court did not have the remit to pursue lower level cadres. "Im Chaem is not subject to the (tribunal's) personal jurisdiction, which means she was neither a senior leader nor otherwise one of the most responsible officials of the Khmer Rouge regime," the court said in a statement. The decision illustrates both the limits of the court's powers as well as the Cambodian government's public unease over pursuing fresh trials. 'Difficult to swallow' Strongman Prime Minister Hun Sen – himself a former Khmer Rouge cadre before he defected – has repeatedly hit out at the prospect of further prosecutions, warning they could ignite civil unrest. Critics say Hun Sen is worried new cases might shine an uncomfortable spotlight on historical links between government members and the brutal communist regime.

This year’s Six Nations schedule has distinct similarities to 2003 and some successful tinkering against the visitors would intensify them England will be hoping Six Nations history is about to repeat itself. Fourteen years ago they kicked off the tournament with home success over France followed by a victory in Cardiff and then met Italy on the middle weekend. Then, as now, their penultimate fixture was a Calcutta Cup duel with Scotland at Twickenham prior to a juicy finale in Dublin . Nor do the similarities end there. With one eye on winning the next World Cup, England’s then head coach, Clive Woodward, spotted an opportunity to make judicious changes to his previously settled XV against an Italy team who had just lost heavily at home to Ireland. With the captain Martin Johnson nursing a sore achilles tendon, a 23-year-old Jonny Wilkinson was promoted to lead the side out for the first time, Josh Lewsey wore 15 and Joe Worsley and Danny Grewcock started up front for Neil Back and Ben Kay respectively.

To be honest although I like football there are hardly any players I think are interesting enough to go and listen to them talk about themselves. Having said that if there is one footballer who has made an impression both on and (just) off the pitch then it is Eric Cantona. He is probably one of, if not the, most talked about, skillful and Iconic players in the history of the Premier League.

MUMBAI: Data on US FDA inspections in past 8 years and warning letters (WL) issued and their resolutions in recent years paints a disturbing picture, says a recent Edelweiss report. Since the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA’s) implementation in Oct 2012, FDA inspections have doubled in India and China (20% versus 11% of total inspections earlier), which led to considerable increase in issuance of WLs (55% versus 33% of total earlier). WL resolutions have become longer and rarer - only 9 out of 108 WLs have been sorted out taking an average of ~500 days. Data for India and China is even bleaker with just one resolution out of the 64 WLs issued in past 52 months. Cadila Healthcare’s Moraiya unit (474 days) looks poised to be resolved soon post its recent re-audit that had no FDA observations. While data suggests that Sun Pharma’s Halol unit (454 days) and Dr Reddy’s (349 days) are closer to resolution timeframe, the concern is that the WLs are not easy to resolve.

Clearstream’s account at JPMorgan received interest payments and redemptions on $1.67 billion in bonds held on behalf of an Italian bank fronting for the Iranians, according to evidence that emerged in a civil suit. There is no evidence that JPMorgan was aware that the accounts were connected to Iran. Federal prosecutors will soon decide whether to charge Clearstream with violations of sanctions laws and making false statements to U.S. regulators about those alleged violations, the two people briefed on the matter said. No determination has been made about whether the company or any individuals will face charges, one of them said. Through spokesmen, Bharara’s office and JPMorgan Chase declined to comment. Nuclear Agreement Bharara’s office started its probe of Clearstream three years ago, at a time when the Obama administration was negotiating to lift some sanctions against Iran in return for measures by Tehran to scale back its nuclear ambitions.

When - a lot of other people. When I look at that face, I see the absolute enormity of the problem that we are faced with. You have people about Donald Trump talking about a 30-day plan to defeat ISIS, and the rest of it, you have talk about ground troops and the rest of it, and it is one thing talking about going in to Iraq or Syria with military forces, and defeating people on the ground, whatever, what I worry about is ideology.

Enter the Zotac Zbox Magnus EN1080, a ventilated black cube that packs a fully watercooled Skylake Intel Core i7-6700 processor (note the lack of the unlocked "K" designation) and Nvidia GTX 1080 inside a case just 225mm wide and 203mm deep. Such powerful hardware means the EN1080 is capable of playing games at a native 4K resolution with near maximum settings at over 60FPS. Even better, thanks to the clever watercooling setup inside, it does so while remaining quieter than any console or desktop PC with a standard cooling setup. It's seriously impressive stuff. Naturally, there's a price to pay for such a setup—and it's not cheap. A barebones EN1080—where you supply your own storage, memory, and operating systemcosts around £2,000 / $2,000 . A more conventional desktop system with the same components plus storage, RAM, OS, and a decent all-on-one liquid cooler comes in at under £1500. Read 18 remaining paragraphs | Comments
