EDIS Emergency & Disaster Alert

Fourteen people, mostly college students on a camping trip, were killed Monday when the brakes on their chartered bus apparently failed on a steep downhill road and it smashed into an electric post and a tree, Philippine officials said. About 45 others were injured, many seriously, said Darlito Bati Jr., a disaster-response officer in Tanay town in Rizal province east of Manila. The dead included the driver and a professor, he said. Bati, who helped pull the victims from the wreckage, said many of the dead were piled in a heap of bodies at the front of the passenger cabin. The impact was so ...

There is a painting on the curved wall lining the staircase. I found two different photos with two different paintings, and judging by the other elements in the photos it's the same staircase, so apparently he gets bored and swaps the paintings out every so often. But the theme remains the same: Both of these are images from Peter Jackson's popular "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. There aren't any publicly-available photos of the upper floors, so I'm afraid our tour ends here. But one thing I want to mention: *Some folks are angry that it is costing taxpayers $1 million per day to guard White House North, arguing that Trump's wife and child should live at the White House, relieving New York City of the financial burden. However, the Trumps have decided that their son should be allowed to finish the year at his current school. We can all criticize Trump for his policies and views, but we oughtn't question whatever decisions are made for the sake of his own family.

I bought it at dealer's cost and Bob said, This time, it's on me. Next time, you get to pay, but there never was a next time. Apparently I never needed to buy another one. (laughs) Bob passed away about 20 years ago. He had that dealership from ‘61 until I think about 1970. When he sold it, it continued as a Lotus dealer for a time but under another name. The building and everything is still there, but now the front part is an Enterprise Rental Agency and the back is a Toyota garage. AG: How did you land on an Elan as your choice of car after coming home? SK: Well, I had wanted a Lotus for a long time, but when I got back from Vietnam I got married and my wife and I were going to buy a regular car because we figured the Mustang was just a little too small. It was actually a friend of mine who knew I really wanted a Lotus who said, “You know.

The condition of the girl is not known. A new row has broken out over health spending, and claims of a bed crisis in the NHS.

We recently published an article where someone apparently controlled their TV by simulating a remote with merely a lighter and a sheet of paper . The paper had a barcode like cutout for a supposed Universal Standby Signal . The video rightfully attracted a substantial crowd, some awestruck by its simplicity, others sceptical about its claims. Coming from some generic Viral Life Hack production house, the characteristic blare of background music, more suited to an underground rave than a technical video, certainly did not do it any favours. As any moderately experienced campaigner would know, modern televisions and remotes have been carefully engineered to prevent such mishaps. Many of us at Hackaday, were under the impression that it would take something slightly more sophisticated than a fluorescent-bodied lighter and a crisp sheet of A4 to deceive the system.

Both had their father's ear during his final years, apparently weighing in with Jerry to trade Bynum and influencing the club's free-agent choices of Steve Blake and Matt Barnes in 2010. Jeanie now makes all the calls, but she doesn't want to in basketball operations. Joey and Jesse are expectedalong with Walton and Johnsonto be increasingly involved with those moves in the future. Whomever the Lakers hire if they replace Kupchak will be the critical decision. But whatever anyone says about Johnson's lack of front-office experience, at least he hasn't been the one doing the damage to the Lakers product in recent years. Valid reason exists to believe Johnson will forge better relationships with agents and other league operativesit would take him five minutes to take 25 steps at All-Star Weekend because of how many would stop him to say hiand also inside an organization that Jeanie wants to have the sort of solidarity her father used to build.

Following this meeting, Fowler claims that her manager threatened to fire her if she continued reporting incidents of sexism to HR. She said that nothing was done about this threat, despite saying she then told HR and Uber's CTO, who apparently admitted that it was illegal. She claims the lack of action was once again due to the manager in question being "a high performer". She added: "When I joined Uber, the organization [division] I was part of was over 25% women," she said. "By the time I was trying to transfer... this number had dropped down to less than 6%." On her last day, she said 3% of more than 150 engineers in her division were women. Multiple women in Silicon Valley and beyond have taken to Twitter and the comments section of Fowler's blog to show their support and to share similar stories. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has expressed his horror at the accusations, and promised a complete investigation into the issue.

The mighty Mr Kurt Russell has also joined the film in an unannounced role, leading many speculators to believe that he could turn out to be playing Star-Lord's father. Rumours have suggested recently that Sylvester Stallone could also have a role in the film, as he’s been spotted at the cast hotel in Atlanta holding a script. If his involvement in the movie is confirmed by official sources, we’ll let you know and update this article. The character’s that arent in the movie are also important. There wont be any Avengers popping up, apparently, despite early rumours linking Mark Rufallo’s Hulk to the movie (in the end, he wound up with a role in Thor: Ragnarok instead). Benicio del Toro’s Collector will not appear, either, despite being a memorable presence in the first film. Here are The Ravagers from the movie, in costume... Ravagers R Us, starting at the top left, around in a circle: Brahl, Oblo, Scrote, Narblik, Gef the Ravager, Kraglin, Wretch, Half-Nut, Taserface.

(credit: INXS, Meditate) Google and Microsoft's Bing have agreed to crack down on piracy sites in the UK, after years of wrangling with film and music rights holders. The tech giants have inked a voluntary code of practice with the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and Motion Picture Association, following a series of talks overseen by the UK's © watchdog and steered by the department for culture, media, and sport. On Monday, the Intellectual Property Office described it as a "landmark agreement" in which Google and Bing have vowed to reduce "the visibility of infringing content in search results by 1 June 2017." It means that repeat offenders who post pirated material online will see their sites drop off the first page of Google and Bing, when film and music fans search for content. Instead, they will apparently be shepherded towards legit sites. Read 9 remaining paragraphs | Comments

We may know the truth soon though, as its possible HTC will show the One X10 off at Mobile World Congress ( MWC 2017 ) next week, given that the HTC 11 isnt likely to arrive for another few months . And even if these specs prove to be wrong, its sure to be at least a mid-range handset, since HTC is apparently done with low-end phones for now. Via Gadget Detected
