The woman he spoke to reviewed each bill with him, and calmed his concerns about what would be covered. “When we were done with that rigmarole, I asked, ‘What kind of a figure do you have?’” Gregory recalls. “She said, ‘Are you ready?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I’m ready.’ And she says ‘It’s a little over fifteen million dollars.’” The costs of Joseph’s medical care are mostly billed to Medicaid. Financial support for Joseph’s other needs while navigating life with a debilitating gunshot injury can be elusive. “You have to find ways to figure out who can help pay for what,” Gregory says. “That’s a job unto itself.” Various state and local agencies provide support to crime victims. But often those resources are neither sufficient to counterbalance the enormous costs of gun violence, nor available to everyone affected by it. Donna Bryan believes she would have received reimbursement through Florida’s Bureau of Victim Compensation for several expenses related to her daughter’s death, if that shooting had been considered a crime.

32 calibre revolver, in 2014 — about two years after the ‘Nirbhayaincident. Billed as India’s first “firearm for women”, Nirbheek weighs just over 500 gm, and the short-muzzled revolver packs faultlessly inside a women’s clutch or handbag. Since its introduction, IOF has sold more than 3,000 Nirbheek revolvers, priced about Rs 1.35 lakh apiece, to gun licence holders in the country. In absolute terms, the sales figures may appear small, but considering the limited number of gun licences issued across Indian states, any civilian firearm selling over a thousand units is considered a blockbuster. An email sent to IOF seeking data on sales figures had elicited no response at the time of going to press. WHO ARE THE BUYERS? Ironically, this revolver that comes in a decorative velvet box, is being purchased by men. If dealer logs are to be believed, just over a 100 Nirbheek revolvers have been sold to women gun-licence holders to date.

The new stylus is billed to have less input lag, as Microsoft quadrupled the sensitivity from 1024 levels of pressure to 4096. The buyer can also use the same pen as a creation tool on the Surface Dial. It's interesting to see how the new Surface Pro will impact the sagging laptop industry, which has been spiraling down for the past nine years now. For its part, Microsoft's Surface line fell 26% based on first quarter data against the same period in 2016. The new Pro joins the growing Microsoft Surface family, including the Surface Book, the Surface Laptop, and the Surface Studio PC. Microsoft Surface Pro will come in three variants, the Core i7, Core i5, and Core M, and will launch in June of this year. Pre-orders will start next week.

Trump issued his first executive order seven days after he took office, but the measure was largely halted in an earlier round of legal action. In March, he withdrew the previous foray and reissued a narrowed version of the order. The president billed both directives as a way to counter the threat of terrorism on U.S. soil, but critics have branded the orders as transparent attempts to carry out the Muslim ban Trump promised during last year's presidential campaign. The 4th Circuit majority opinion seizes on statements from White House officials, including senior adviser Stephen Miller and press secretary Sean Spicer, indicating that the new executive order was closely tied to the first one and was intended to accomplish the same purposes. Several of the judges who voted to uphold the injunction against Trump’s order wrote separately to explain their rationale.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld an injunction blocking a key part of President Donald Trump's revised travel ban executive order. In a 10-3 vote that fell essentially along party lines, the judges refused to disturb a lower court ruling that barred the administration from proceeding with a plan to deny visas to citizens of six majority-Muslim countries. A panel of another federal appeals court—the San Francisco-based 9th Circuit—is considering whether to lift an even broader order blocking the enforcement of parts of Trump's directive. Trump issued his first executive order after it was largely halted in an earlier round of legal action. In March, he withdrew the previous foray and reissued narrowed version of the measure in March.

Electric vehicles have been billed as the sustainable alternative to gas-guzzling cars. But that hasn't always been the case, particularly when coal-fired electricity is used to recharge the battery. Yet with solar and wind power booming in the U.S., and natural gas supplanting coal, the low-carbon EV dream is finally becoming a reality, a new analysis says. Automakers are also unveiling new and better electric car models, making it easier to ditch gasoline-fueled cars. Electric vehicles are now "unequivocally" the cleanest cars in the country, based on a national average, the research and journalism group Climate Central reported on Wednesday. Read more...

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday said ahead of crunch talks with the EU's leadership it was up to Brussels to decide if it wanted Turkey as a member of the bloc. Speaking to reporters before leaving Ankara airport for the trip to Brussels which will also see him attend a NATO summit, Erdogan said Turkey was not prepared to behave like a "beggar" to gain membership. Tensions between Ankara and Brussels spiralled in the run-up to the April 16 referendum on expanding Erdogan's powers, raising questions about the future of the Turkish membership bid. Erdogan will on Thursday meet EU president Donald Tusk and commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker in what has been billed as a major chance to salvage the over half-century membership bid. "The EU has no right to see Turkey as a beggar. We are going to tell them this. What are you still waiting for after 54 years?" he said, repeating Ankara's frustration with the length of the membership process.

The revised statute would also require local jails to share more information about people in custody, including whether the individual is removable from the U.S. and the person's home address. Under the reworked measure, the Homeland Security and Justice departments would be able to condition federal grants on compliance. In January, Trump issued an executive order that included language billed as a crackdown on so-called sanctuary cities, threatening their federal funding. Last month, a judge issued an injunction against part of that order, directing that it not be applied beyond the funding restrictions contained in a specific section of federal law focused on policies that interfere with local officialscommunications with the feds. On Monday, the Justice Department asked the judge to dissolve that injunction, saying that it was unnecessary.

Hyde) appears to be the glue: He will drop into The Mummy for a cameo when it premieres on June 9. The universe has been long in the works , though it's still unclear whether The Invisible Man and Frankenstein's Monster can battle Superman and Iron Man at the box office. Here's what you need to know. This Mummy has nothing to do with Brendan Fraser's Mummy In 1999, Fraser and Rachel Weisz starred in a movie also called The Mummy about a group of 1920s explorers who accidentally unearth a very angry undead priest. Reviews were mixed. (The late, great Roger Ebert wrote : There is hardly a thing I can say in its favor, except that I was cheered by nearly every minute of it.) But it was a hit at the box office and spawned two sequels and a spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson, then billed as the Rock. Fraser's Rick O'Connell will not appear in the Tom Cruise film, nor will any other characters from the original movies.

The growing mismatch means fewer birds are likely to survive, reproduce, and return the following year. These are birds people are used to seeing and hearing in their backyards. They're part of the American landscape, part of our psyche. To imagine a future where they're much less common would be a real loss. View larger . (Credit: U. Florida) Can't keep up Mayor and colleagues used data from satellites and citizen scientists to study how quickly the interval between spring plant growth and the arrival of 48 songbird species across North America changed from 2001 to 2012. The researchers found the gap lengthened by over half a day per year across all species on average, a rate of five days per decade—but for some species, the mismatch is growing at double or triple that rate. Nine species were clearly unable to keep up with the shift: great crested flycatchers, indigo buntings, scarlet tanagers, rose-breasted grosbeaks, eastern wood pewees, yellow-billed cuckoos, northern parulas, blue-winged warblers, and Townsend's warblers.
