They would avoid any sort of longer-term occupation of penitentiaries. Security officials said members of Brazil's most powerful drug gang, the First Capital Command (PCC) — who last Saturday started a riot in Alcacuz and killed 26 members of a rival gang, many of whom they beheadedtried to invade their enemies' prison wing again early Tuesday afternoon. Images broadcast live on Globo TV showed prisoners from both the PCC and the local gang Crime Union of RNRN being the Portuguese initials for Rio Grande do Norte state — atop the roofs of their respective wings, waving banners with gang insignia and wielding knives, clubs and other homemade weapons. Scores of prisoners were seen running free within the prison — clearly indicating that security officials did not have control of the prison, which Franco said they had regained Monday night.

Her daughter and another girl accompanied a friend to her home. The men confronted them on their way back. "The men pulled up in a car alongside them and told them to get in. When they refused, they pushed them into the car and drove off," Abdirahman said. "They were taken into the car forcefully and then the men turned on music. They took them to the outskirts of the town and they did the ugly things that you have heard [about]." Abdirahman said her daughter was brutally beaten and tortured because she told the men, "You have to kill me to rape me." Abdirahman was at her daughter's bedside at a hospital in the town of Galkayo when she talked to VOA. Local officials and religious leaders have condemned the attack and have vowed to seek justice for the victims. Hassan Salah Ayahle, the mayor of Goldogob, said authorities took the two girls to the hospital after the incident and then immediately started searching for the perpetrators.

AirTV was one of the most intriguing cord-cutter products to debut at CES earlier this month. It's an Android-based set-top box that combines Sling TV streams and over-the-air channels into a single interface. AirTV started shipping immediately after its unveiling, while the company—a subsidiary of Dish Network, like Slingdemonstrated full antenna integration at CES. There’s just one problem: Early adopters arent getting what AirTV has been showing off to the press, at least not yet. The current product doesnt pull over-the-air channels into the Sling TV guide, and an AirTV representative says full integration will require an update that's coming sometime in “early 2017.” To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

In another possible sign of tensions, a Saudi delegation in December visited a massive hydroelectric dam being built on the Nile in Ethiopia -- a project which seriously worries Egypt as the river provides more than 90 percent of its water. "The idea that we can count on Saudi Arabia as an economic partner for Egypt has started to fade," Ghitani says. It is unclear how concerned officials are in Riyadh following the latest ruling. Anwar Eshki, a retired Saudi general and founder of the independent Middle East Centre for Strategic and Legal Studies in Jeddah, says there is "no problem between Saudi Arabia and Egypt" about the decision. "This is an internal affair," he says, describing the court battles as a reflection of domestic Egyptian struggles. In Tuesday's edition of Saudi Arabia's Arab News, editor-in-chief Faisal Abbas also played down the dispute, saying that contrary "to some local media", Saudi Arabia "remains one of Egypt's biggest allies".

He subsequently finished in the top 10 of MVP voting three times in the next five years. It appeared the marriage between Bautista and the Blue Jays was coming to an end when his contract expired after the 2016 season. The Blue Jays jumped on free agents Kendrys Morales and Steve Pearce, who has the versatility to play at first base or in the outfield. That eagerness led to the departure of Edwin Encarnacion. Bautista kept twisting in the wind because it wasn't clear where his market started. MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Sunday the Baltimore Orioles had been in contact with the six-time All-Star. Rosenthal reported Saturday the Cleveland Indians , who signed Encarnacion earlier this offseason, were keeping in touch with Bautista if his price fell to a certain undisclosed point. Instead, as the Blue Jays faced the possibility of going into a season with Ezequiel Carrera as their starting right fielder, the front office decided the best course of action would be to bring Bautista back.

The Band’s Robbie Robertson has worked on and off at the Village since the 1970s, and Studio Ed is home to Grammy-winning producer and engineer Ed Cherney. At their service are a few dozen engineers and gofers, many of them young musicians Greenberg has hired through a relationship with the Berklee College of Music. On the third floor, in a former musical instrument storage space once occupied by, among others, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, pop songwriter Noel Zancanella is meeting with a few would-be collaborators. When Danny Elfman rented the space, he renamed it Muerte Surgical Instruments. Zancanella, whose homey suite feels like a secret clubhouse, started as a Village coffee boy under Greenberg. He rose to assistant engineer, struck out on his own and has since co-written or co-produced hits for Taylor Swift, OneRepublic and Maroon 5. After his success, Zancanella debated building a home studio at his place in Venice.

The Core77 discussion board is a great place not only to share your bright and shiny final products, but also your ever-evolving process and progress. Given there are a number of people who utilize the boards in some ways we envisioned it and in many ways far beyond, we love giving shout-outs to those who use the platform to connect with other designers and help other readers learn something along the way. One such designer dedicated to sharing her process is Seattle based designer Sophie Horton Jones, who started posting some of her quick concept sketches earlier last year as she was looking for technical feedback from fellow designers. We've enjoyed following her posts and taking a look at her ideas and ongoing sketch challenges. As a designer who has worked primarily in the toy industry, she has mastered a toy-like aesthetic with thick borders, large annotations, and a playful style: Character baby monitors with camera and a multitude of sensors (sound, heat, movement etc) Kids Nutribullet style blender with multi-function cap.

Bikers for Trump are on their way. It will be a great Thursday, Friday and Saturday!" Both CNN and the Post-ABC poll pegged Trump's approval rating at 40 percent, about half that for President Barack Obama when he took office in 2009 and well below Obama's current 61 percent approval rating as he leaves. Since 1976, the seven other newly elected U.S. presidents have started their terms with favorability ratings ranging from 56 to 79 percent. On the flip side, no recent president has come close to Trump's 54 percent unfavorable polling at the start of his presidency. The negative views of Trump are partly a reflection of the contentious 2016 election, in which the president-elect stunned political analysts in his upset win over Democrat Hillary Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state looking to become the first female U.S. president. Clinton won nearly three million more popular votes than Trump, but he prevailed where it mattered, in the Electoral College, the system of state-by-state outcomes the U.

On the eve of its possible repeal, Obamacare is at its most popular, according to a poll from NBC and the Wall Street Journal released Tuesday. Forty-five percent of Americans surveyed said they think Obamacare, the outgoing president’s signature legislative achievement formally called the Affordable Care Act, is a “good idea.” Forty-one percent think it is a bad idea. The poll, conducted between Jan. 12 and 15, started asking about Obamacare in April 2009, and this month marks both the highest percentage of respondents who signaled their approval for the law and the first time that more people surveyed said they like it than dislike it. Republicans in Congress and President-elect Donald Trump have vowed to repeal the law and replace it with some alternative, although there is no clear consensus on what form that new legislation might take. The NBC/WSJ poll found that 50 percent of respondents have “little to no confidence that Republican proposals to replace the law will make things better.
