PETALING JAYA: A disabled man who was found tied to his bed was rescued by firemen in the nick of time when a fire broke out at his house in Section 17, here today. Firemen who carried the man out of the blaze at his house on Jalan 17/43 at 12pm had initially suspected the disabled man was victim of arson or foul play as he was bound to his bed. However, police investigators learnt that the man who is in his 20's and was paralysed following a bout of fever 10 years ago was tied to his bed by his family as he had a tendency to fall off his bed. The fire was put out within minutes by firemen and police learnt that an absent-minded family member had left a pot of food to cook on the gas stove. The family member had forgotten to switch off the stove before leaving the house to run some errands. Passing patrol policemen who spotted the blaze alerted the fire and rescue department. It is learnt that police are investigating the case for negligence.

THE news that Shakespeare was briefing the media yesterday on the Claudio Ranieri affair at Leicester was appropriate considering the near operatic scale of the tragedy which has unfolded in this corner of the East Midlands in the last few days. In fact, the man in question was Ranieri's former assistant Craig - who will take the team into Monday night's Barclays Premier League meeting with Liverpool - and not William, but even the bard himself would have had his work cut out writing a pot boiler of a plot line like this one.

A Bodmin shopkeeper said she was heartbroken to see what was happening in her town following a spate of burglaries over the past few weeks. In one, the raiders took tabacco and alcohol and two charity boxes. In another they left the charity box, but took a box of crisps, three pasties, a pot of pasta and yoghurts from the fridge. It appears that about ten premises have been targeted in the past fortnight. On Wednesday evening Barnecutts Bakery and Warrens Bakery in Fore Street...

Given how small its dozen pistons must be, I’d expected it to need to be revved to its 6000rpm redline in every gear to provide even halfdecent response. In fact, the engine is inexplicably torquey and giving its all by 4500rpm. The gearchange is slow but precise, the engine as smooth and brimful of character as any I’ve known. In the 1940s it must have seemed like a spaceship. It felt odd to jump between Ferraris designed 70 years apart and, to be honest, I struggled to find things they shared in common. Apart, that is, from an attitude. More than any other car, more than any other brand, Ferraris were, and remain, about the simple, delightful business of driving. Other considerations may enter the pot, but they do so second. It was that way when Ferrari built its first car, and it remains that way today. All we can hope is that in 70 years’ time our descendants will still be able to say the same thing.

What did you object to about this item? Mainly because it is not news. It is as simple as that. This actually was a shameless piece of Hollywood PR. It consisted of puff about the film, it was a long film of Pol Pot which is 40 or 50 years old, and then the most ludicrous so-called exclusive interview, which reminded me of a levitation scene from Absolutely Fabulous in which he said absolutely nothing.

Free bottled water is also left in the room after every cleaning. To experience a level of formal service that you may never encounter again, I highly recommend trying room service dinner. My wife and I ordered a salad, a seafood stew, a Portuguese pork-and-clams dish and a dessert and were blown away by the way the server presented our dishes — this was dinner theater and came across almost like a magic act. First, he wheeled in a table covered in a white tablecloth. The hot dishes were being kept warm in concealed compartments, cold dishes in a portable fridge. The seafood stew came in a copper pot; he lifted the lid like it was some great reveal: voila! Within seconds he had unveiled mini Tabasco bottles, a butter tray, cute salt and pepper shakers, oil and vinegar and a bread basket filled with crackers, rolls and breadsticks (we saved them and ate them for days).

Israel is becoming more and more isolated in the world, so it depends on one friend, the United States. But supporting Israel is not in America's interests. In fact, Israel is a strategic liability for the U.S. That makes American Jewish influence the ultimate pillar of Israel's survival. And that pressure comes at a considerable cost: American Jews will inevitably be exposed to hostility from non-Jews. Therefore, American Jews must press Israel for a declaration in exchange for wielding our influence: Israel will return to the 1967 lines in return for Arab recognition. That's a blunt and realistic assessment of the role, and risks, of the Israel lobby, right? And here is the amazing thing about the argument: the eminent Jewish scholar Nathan Glazer made it more than 40 years ago! The Harvard sociologist most famous for co-authorship of Beyond the Melting Pot, Glazer stated these ideasin very much those words in an essay in a dissident Jewish publication in 1976.

The controversy, which triggered mass recalls and a sea of legal complaints, pushed VW into the red for the first time in more than 20 years in 2015 due to the provisions it had to set aside to cover the costs of the crisis. The group on Friday said it added another 4.4 billion euros to the pot in the last quarter of 2016, bringing the total amount set aside for re-fits, buy-backs, fines and compensation to 22.6 billion euros. Volkswagen took a major step towards resolving some of its legal woes last month when it agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges in the United States, including fraud. The group has so far committed to paying out more than $22 billion in fines and compensation to drivers, dealers and authorities in the US, where some 600,000 cars were equipped with the defeat devices. But it has not offered any compensation to the millions of European drivers affected, to the dismay of EU officials who have piled pressure on VW to show the same generosity as in the US.

Moving his Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix-inspired collection from Paris to Milan last year "was a gamble", he told AFP. "It was a case of let's do something different Milan doesn't have, but I was afraid they wouldn't understand what I'm doing here because everything is so classic in Milan," he said. The pot-smoker, whose designs recall summers spent puffing on spliffs with "skate rats" in the City of Angels, brings an anti-establishment defiance to loungewear, applying high-production values to items usually bought by low-end shoppers. "There is this contrast in my work: very laid back clothes, but made in the best possible way," he said. Case in point: the tracksuit. "It's one of our key items. I like the fact the tracksuit in different cultures represents something different, it's a part of the wardrobe that is really simple, but it says something about who you are and where you are from.

Ben Pitt 6 hours 30 min ago Digital SLRs are a melting pot of modern and traditional technologies. Their cosmetic design hasnt changed much in 50 years, and the single lens reflex mechanism that gives SLR its name is even older. Light passing through the lens hits various mirrors on its way to the viewfinder, giving you the most direct view of the shot you’re about to take. SLRs also have decades of lens design to draw on, as they use the same lens mounts as film SLR cameras. Today’s SLRs use a digital sensor rather than film, but that’s not the only difference. They can record video, track moving subjects around the frame, communicate with other devices over Wi-Fi and much more besides. Meanwhile, the latest sensors go way beyond 35mm film for image quality. Whether you have £400 or £4,000 to spend, our guide explain what features you need, and which ones you don't, and pinpoints the best DSLRs you can buy - regardless of whether they're the latest and greatest, or last year's models which are now selling for a bargain price.
