"We received a report from MMEA on the possibility of the ships entering Indonesian waters and our TNI AL special force acted fast carrying out patrols in several areas and found two ships in suspicious circumstances before detaining the ships and six crew," he said. Initial investigations showed that the vessels fitted the description of the ships that had escaped from MMEA and that they had tried to evade the authorities by changing the colour of the ships, he said. Aan Kurnia said the two ships with the six crew members were being held at the jetty in Yos Sudarso, Main Naval Base IV in Tanjung Pinang for further investigations. He said the crew would be prosecuted for the offence of entering Indonesian waters without valid documents. Five days ago, MMEA detained two foreign ships in the south of Tanjung Penyusop, for anchoring without permission and on further examination found the tankers also had no insurance. However, the ships managed to escape after being held for three days. — Bernama

After Connie Dabate was killed in her Connecticut home, just two days before Christmas 2015, her obituary described her as "beloved wife and best friend of Richard Dabate."

AT&T announced today that it has begun rolling out its 5G Evolution service, offering select phones in select areas faster-than-4G service even if it's not teeechnically 5G. Starting out in Austin, TX, users with a Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus can now participate in the 5G Evolution program, allowing them to enjoy speeds the telecoms giant claims are twice as fast as its current 4G LTE service. Though true 5G connectivity is fast approaching , the catch here is the gigabit-speed wireless standard is still in development, with AT&T in particular currently working on setting up the infrastructure to bring true 5G service to the US. AT&T is also neck-and-neck with Verizon in the race to bring 5G to the country, with Verizon announcing tests for its newly built network just a couple months ago. 5Genuine? As for 5G Evolution, it's unclear if the program will give way to 5G once the standard is achieved nationwide, or if the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will still be supported when that moment comes.

That’s a tall order, because Democrats generally are loathe to pass tax cuts for corporations, especially without corresponding cuts for individuals. Trump’s plan would drastically lower the corporate rate from 35 percent to 15 percent —at an eye-popping $2 trillion price tag. “The best chance to have tax reform is through reconciliation,” said a senior House Republican, referring to GOP leadership’s plan to use a fast-track tool to pass the bill on simple-majority votes. Ryan’s office stressed that talks are ongoing and nothing is decided. “We all agree on the benefits of tax reform and the place we want to land, and the question is how you reach that place,” Ryan’s spokeswoman, AshLee Strong, said in a statement. “We continue to have productive discussions with the administration about all ideas on the table.” To be sure, the House alone — not the White House — has the power to write a tax bill.

Tidal flooding now predictably drenches inland streets, even when the sun is out.” Moreover, “Sean Becketti, the chief economist at Freddie Mac, warned in a report last year of a housing crisis for coastal areas more severe than the Great Recession, one that could spread through banks, insurers and other industries. And, unlike the recession, there’s no hope of a bounce back in property values.” That wasnt a regular consumer saying this; it was Freddie Mac’s chief economist, a top expert on the matter. Despite the optimism among the general public regarding those homes (“Since the end of 2010, median home prices in and around Miami rose 120 percent”), insurance risk-assessment professionals are aiming to lead the abandonment of Florida’s coastal properties, selling theirs while the boom for those properties still exists. “‘Nobody thinks it’s coming as fast as it is,’ said Dan Kipnis, the chairman of Miami Beach’s Marine and Waterfront Protection Authority, who has been trying to find a buyer for his home in Miami Beach for almost a year, and has already lowered his asking price twice.

This was an initial suggestion of a link between NPTX2 and cognition. Alzheimer’s didnt cause memory loss for these 90-year-olds The scientists then examined mice bred without the rodent equivalent of the NPTX2 gene and discovered that a lack of NPTX2 alone wasn't enough to affect cell function. But then they added a gene that increases amyloid generation to the mouse brains. In brain slices from mice with both amyloid and no NPTX2, fast-spiking interneurons could not control brain rhythms important for making new memories. Examination of cerebrospinal fluid from 60 living Alzheimer's patients and 72 people without the disease provided further evidence. Perhaps the most important aspect of the discovery is that NPTX2 reduction appears to be independent of the mechanism that generates amyloid plaques, Worley says. This means that NPTX2 represents a new mechanism.

The seven intelligence staffers handling the investigation now, King said, “are professional staff people who have worked on other kinds of projects, but I don't think we have anyone who specifically has a background in prosecution and investigation.” Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) said he was “concerned that it’s not moving along fast enough.” “I think it is making progress, but I think there need to be more resources, more staffing to be able to get someplace in a reasonable timeframe,” Heinrich told reporters. The Democrat who’s been most vocal about his concerns is Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, who said Tuesday he’s “been clear for some time with the bipartisan leadership of the committee that we've got to pick up the pace.” “We've got to pick up the pace because people are getting most of their information now from leaks and false tweets and from the story of the day,” Wyden said.
