The 5 at 5 Tuesday

first_imgEVERY WEEKDAY EVENING, brings you up to speed with the five things you should know as you head out the door.1. #BELFAST Police in Belfast were contacted with reports of a gun pointing out the window of a building on Donegall Street earlier today. The street was closed off for around half an hour. During a search of the building in question, three replica firearms were found in one room. An investigation is underway.2. #DEAN FITZPATRICK The funeral of Dean Fitzpatrick (23) took place in Dublin today, at the Holy Trinity church in Donaghmede. Fr Eoin McCrystal said Dean “was a young man with so much of life ahead of him”. Dean, whose sister Amy went missing aged 15 in Spain five years ago, died after suffering stab wounds on 26 May.3. #INVESTIGATION The University of Limerick is to investigate the role that students may have played in the death of a dog that was allegedly lured to its death in a road traffic accident. The university said any act of cruelty to animals would lead to disciplinary procedures. The investigation follows a report in the Limerick Leader newspaper about the alleged incident in Castletroy.4. #BANK The British Government is reportedly considering a plan which would see it asking the Irish Government to buy Ulster Bank. The bank is currently owned by the Royal Bank of Scotland. Reports say the UK’s equivalent to the Department of Finance has called for RBS to be split into a ‘good bank’ and ‘bad bank’ – or for Ulster Bank to be separated from the rest of the RBS group, possibly through a sale to the Irish government.5. #WEATHER This spring was one of the coldest on record, Met Éireann said today. All three months of the season reported below-average temperatures, with March reporting the coldest conditions. Sunshine totals were below average everywhere except Shannon Airport.last_img read more

Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic heaps on the power luxury

first_img Share your voice Land Rover Review • 2018 Range Rover Velar: Effortless SUV elegance on- and off-road Land Rover: Get all your Land Rover news right here.SUVs: Keep up to date with all the SUV news you can handle. 0 SUVs Luxury cars More From Roadshow 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value It was only a matter of time before Land Rover bestowed its fanciest trim level upon the slick Range Rover Velar, and now, here it is.Land Rover on Tuesday unveiled the Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition. This brevity-averse trim name carries some of the fanciest appointments Range Rover has on offer. Unlike other SVAutobiography models, however, Land Rover says this one will exist for just one year.But what a year it’ll be. Upon first glance, it’s obvious this isn’t your average Velar. There are larger intakes in the new front bumper, cooling both its engine and its beefier brakes. There’s a new grille, new side moldings and quad tailpipes sticking through a new rear bumper. There’s also a new tray under the transmission tunnel to better channel air. The paint color you see here is only available on this Velar variant, and a contrasting black roof is standard.Hidden under the standard 21-inch wheels is a massive set of stoppers. The SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition rocks 15.5-inch front brakes and 15.6-inch rear brakes, wrapped in red calipers with Land Rover emblems, although black calipers are available for more demure buyers. Enlarge ImageGiant air intakes are usually a good indicator that you’re dealing with something fun. Land Rover The interior ramps things up even further. Replete with double-stitched, perforated, quilted Windsor leather, it’s available in four different color schemes. The front seats have 20-way adjustability and heating, ventilation and massage. The shift paddles are made of real aluminum. There’s also a sportier steering wheel and knurled controls for the infotainment system. Carbon fiber is available for the trim. The 12.3-inch gauge screen has a unique startup screen, because why wouldn’t it?There’s power to back up that plush, too. The Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition sports a 5.0-liter supercharged gas V8 putting out 550 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque, enough to push the car to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. Its eight-speed automatic transmission has been reconfigured to handle the extra power, and the all-wheel-drive system has a new transfer box dedicated to handling all that hustle. There’s also an active exhaust system that can go from (somewhat) silent to violent depending on driving conditions.The Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition isn’t yet on sale, and Land Rover didn’t specify when it would be, but it should be a hot ticket given its limited-edition status. Pricing will likely be announced closer to its release, but for context, you can spec a current Velar to within spitting distance of six figures, so expect this new one to go for at least that much. In regular Range Rover form, the SVAutobiography Dynamic Edition starts at a hefty $177,500. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealouscenter_img Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography packs 550 hp, high-end trimmings Post a comment 42 Photos More about 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Preview • 2018 Range Rover Velar: I really, really hope you like touchscreens 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Tags Land Roverlast_img read more

Forget Galaxy Fold 5G and foldable phones go big at MWC 2019

first_img “This will be the most consequential MWC since the launch of 4G,” said Wayne Lam, an analyst at HIS Markit.Where CES in January offered a modest tease of what 5G would look like, MWC will be the proper launch of the next-generation cellular technology. After years of hype that 5G will change our lives by connecting everything to a super-fast and super-responsive network, some of the deployments are actually going live.Heck, even President Donald Trump is tweeting about it. Mobile World Congress 2019 See it Comments $49 See It Adorama Share your voice MWC 2019 phone trends we’ll see 12 Mentioned Above Nokia 3310 Nokia 9 PureView “Beholder.” HNY— Evan Blass (@evleaks) December 31, 2018 Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone Perhaps it’ll go for a trifecta of retro phones. Or someone like Chinese phone maker Oppo will come out of nowhere to wow crowds.With Samsung out of the mix, anything could happen at MWC. The story originally published at 5 a.m. PT. Jun 29 • Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro LG V50 ThinQ 5G: Why you shouldn’t rush to buy a 5G phone Close up with the Galaxy Fold screen, notch and hinge $40 This is poised to be a big show. CNET Samsung and the MWC Barcelona conference have long had an up-and-down relationship. The energy at the trade show has ebbed and flowed depending on whether the world’s largest handset maker decides to hold its big first-half phone launch in Spain. If Samsung shows up, there’s a noticeable perk in interest. On Wednesday, just days before this year’s MWC kicks off, Samsung debuted its Galaxy S10 lineup and its Galaxy Fold. In San Francisco. You’d think this would take the wind out of the MWC sails. But between the mix of unique new devices, some international intrigue and, of course, 5G, the show has a good shot of standing on its own without Samsung. MWC traditionally offers you a window into what the smartphone world will look like over the next year. But with 5G, you could be seeing the foundation for how things evolve over the next few years. Tags Jul 9 • Killer cameras and battery life might meet their match in the Note 10center_img 60 Photos See It 2:52 Preview • Nokia 3310 is the phone of the millennium, reinvented for millennials Nokia 3310 reading • Forget Galaxy Fold: 5G and foldable phones go big at MWC 2019 Review • Nokia 3310: Bare bones and lovin’ it Best Buy Mobile World Congress 2019 • See All Another reason to be excited is the potential to see more foldable smartphones in the works. Samsung may have kicked things off with the Galaxy Fold, but Huawei and Xiaomi may have their own flexible devices. LG, likewise, has an intriguing second-screen attachment for one of its flagship phones. The other wrinkle is how Huawei will handle being in the spotlight at the show while dealing with increased global scrutiny over the security of its products. The company typically has a massive presence at MWC, and this year won’t be any different. So yeah, it’s going to be a wild and weird show. 5G, 5G, 5GIt’s 2019, and 5G is finally here. South Korea has switched on the service, although customers and deployments remain limited. In the US, AT&T has real 5G (not the fake 5G E) in a dozen markets, while Verizon has had its 5G Home service up since late last year (some quibble about whether it’s real 5G). img-2683A booth at CES touting 5G. It’ll get more intense at MWC. CNET There’s no question we’ll see slivers of real 5G deployments throughout the conference, with big-name companies like Huawei, Ericsson and Nokia likely putting up test networks in the Fira Gran Via Convention Center. It’ll be a good field test of these networks, given the sheer foot traffic and competing cellular demands of so many different deployments. MWC will also be a good place to see the broader applications beyond a faster smartphone connection. Ericsson in the past has shown how a responsive network can help you remotely drive an excavator thousands of miles away, while Huawei has shown off the potential for smart cities. “The mobile industry is moving forward at rapid pace, and we expect the most significant theme of MWC Barcelona to be how 5G will change the world, and in particular the role it will play in ushering in a new era of intelligent connectivity,” said Mats Granryd, director general of the GSMA, the trade group that puts on the show.Not just SamsungThe Galaxy Fold stole the thunder away from the Galaxy S10 at Samsung Unpacked. Foldable phones at MWC could do the same. While Samsung has gotten the jump on the competition, companies like Huawei and Xiaomi could have the last laugh.Will anyone challenge the Galaxy Fold in the new foldables category? CNET While the Galaxy Fold wowed audiences with its demo, Samsung opted not to let anyone get too close to it, and the phone was MIA when the demo area opened up. Another company could steal the spotlight by offering people a closer hands-on with their foldable devices. At CES, I tried out the Flexpai from Chinese startup Royole. While the software was buggy, the folding display did work well, and it was easily one of the more impressive things I saw at the show. The point is, the bar is low and tolerance for work-in-progress products is high when it comes to flexible phones.  CNET reported that TCL is working on a family of foldable devices, and could offer a tease at the show too.Read: Mate X: Huawei’s $2,600 foldable phone steps up to Galaxy Fold with three screens, four rear cameras, 5G International intrigueIt’s not all fun and games. One of the undercurrents of the show will be how Huawei deals with the questions over its conduct. The US has led the crusade against the company, with its Justice Department leveling numerous charges, including intellectual theft, fraud and obstruction of justice. Meng Wanzhou, the company’s chief financial officer and daughter of founder Ren Zhangfei, is incarcerated in Canada awaiting extradition to the US on some of the charges laid out by the Justice Department. Huawei has denied any wrongdoing, and Ren said in an interview with CBS This Morning that the move was politically motivated. (Note: CNET and CBS This Morning are both part of CBS.)huawei-mwc-2019Huawei has a big presence planned at MWC. Huawei Likewise, ZTE will be coming back from the brink after a settlement with the US Commerce Department over sanctions related to its work with North Korea and Iran. It kept a low profile at CES 2019, but is expected to back with a press conference in Barcelona. Wild-card devices?In the last few years at MWC, phones have emerged out of nowhere to captivate showgoers. There’s the mysterious LG smartphone with a second-screen attachment. It’s not exactly a foldable smartphone, but it’s a potentially unique innovation that gets us past the boring rectangular retro Nokia “Matrix” phones turned heads last year. Andrew Hoyle/CNET Back in 2017, startup HMD Global, which makes phones using the Nokia brand, caught a lot of attention with its remake of the Nokia 3310, which perfectly tapped into the nostalgia trend that also saw the revival of the NES Classic. HMD did it again last year with the Nokia 8110, also known as the Matrix phone. Leaks point to a phone with an astounding five cameras on the back.

Maxedout iMac vs entrylevel iMac Pro Whats the best 5000 Apple desktop

first_img See It 17 Photos • Post a comment See It Tags Mentioned Above Apple iMac Pro 0 See it $4,999 Now playing: Watch this: Adorama $4,999 Apple Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Do you need a workstation CPU? That’s the main question you need to answer before shelling out $5,000 (£4,899, AU$7,299) for the entry-level configuration of the Apple iMac Pro rather than a top-level configuration of the new iMac. There are other considerations, but the CPU is ultimately what the decision comes down to. Because the iMac is now powerful enough for what most people who are gazing longingly at that bottom Pro model need to do.That’s because a workstation CPU determines how professional applications work with your system, and in some cases, what features they’ll “unlock” for you, as well as offering more sophisticated security. (It used to mean more processor cores, but there are now consumer CPUs with up to 18 cores from Intel and AMD CPUs with up to 32 cores thanks to the core wars.)Since the CPU in an all-in-one isn’t upgradable, that’s what you’re stuck with for the life of the system — you can always add an external GPU to upgrade the graphics processing with either system, for example.The iMac Pro has two more USB-C ports than a standard iMac, a 10Gb Ethernet connection and an SD card slot that can be used with UHS-II cards. It’s also designed to handle faster (i.e., hotter-running) components, with extra ventilation at the bottom. Sarah Tew/CNET You might think that the iMac Pro has some other important differences from the iMac, and you’d be right: It can support up to four additional 4K displays rather than the iMac’s two, or two additional 5K monitors rather than just one, thanks to the two extra USB-C/Thunderbolt ports.It has a higher-bandwidth Ethernet connection, 10Gb versus the iMac’s 1Gb.It supports up to 256GB RAM, including error-correcting ECC memory, which is important for high-precision calculations.But I’d argue that if you need a lot of high-resolution monitors or a big network pipe, or run applications that need ECC memory (and a lot of it), you shouldn’t be buying the base-model iMac Pro. You should probably be spending more on a higher-power configuration. And if you’re worried about future upgradability, you might want to wait and see if Apple manages to get its promised modular Mac Pro out the door this year, anyway.For the same money as the iMac Pro base configuration, you can get an iMac with the Intel Core i9-9900K processor and AMD Radeon Pro Vega 48 GPU plus:1TB SSD and 32GB RAM for $4,249, £4,004, AU$6,669 (the same memory and storage capacity as the entry-level iMac Pro)1TB SSD and 64GB RAM for $4,649, £4,364, AU$7,3092TB SSD and 32GB RAM for $4,849, £4,544, AU$7,629The iMac’s Vega 48 isn’t quite as powerful as the Vega 56 in the iMac Pro, but if you’ve got GPU-bound applications, you probably want the Vega 64, anyway, because it has more memory (16GB versus 8GB). And with the money you save by getting the 1TB/32GB iMac, you can buy yourself a pretty nice second monitor.

Indian Railways confused over losing 150 million passengers despite no hike in

first_imgThe Indian Railways saw a sharp fall in passenger traffic by 150 million during the April to August period this year, puzzling the railway ministry to ascertain reasons for the decline even though there was no hike in fares.The Minister of State (MoS) for Railways Manoj Sinha was surprised to note the fall in passenger numbers at the General Managers’ (GMs) meeting held on 15 September.”The trains are always full. You cannot get a reservation. Then how can you say the number of passengers travelling in trains is going down. There must be something wrong with the numbers,” he is believed to have said at the meeting.The Railways saw 3.42 billion passengers travelling by trains between April and August this year, compared to 3.57 billion during the same period last year. Factoring the fall, the ministry estimates the overall number of passengers to come down by about 5% in 2015-16. Following the meeting, AK Mittal, chairman, Railway Board, has sent a letter to all the zonal GMs to find out the reasons behind the drop in passenger count.”The Railway Board Members cannot figure out the trend. It has defied their belief that their low fares vis-a-vis road travel would ensure that passengers do not go anywhere,” a senior official in the traffic directorate of railways told The Economic Times.Several railway officials are of the view that the Mittal’s letter made no sense.”It does not require rocket science to figure out why the passenger figures are going down. Maximum loss has been in the short distance and suburban segment. Obviously, passengers prefer road journeys to the unwelcoming railways. They prefer to pay more to save time than to wait for low fare, unpunctual and crowded trains,” said one official.”It is a pain for most passengers to buy a ticket. There are long queues. Ticket vending machines have been installed at some stations like New Delhi but many of them don’t work. If they work, they ask for the exact amount of money and do not return cash. Mobile booking apps have been launched for some segments but how many can use them. Most passengers don’t have credit or debit cards,” he added.Another official cited increase in ticket-less travel and a shortage of train ticket examiners (TTEs) by nearly 5,000 as reasons for the drop in passenger traffic.”TTEs anyway restrict themselves to reserved sections and hardly venture out to the unreserved sections of the train,” the official said.last_img read more

Airbus Iran deal IranAir takes delivery of its first Airbus airliner as

first_imgIran took delivery of its first western-built Airbus airliner on Wednesday, post the lifting of sanctions. The Airbus A321 landed in capital city Tehran and was received by Iranian Transport Minister Abbas Akhoundi. The brand new fleet of IranAir will eventually comprise 100 Airbus air planes and 80 planes from the Boeing brand.Also read: Iran finalises deal to buy 100 aircraft from Airbus for $10 billionThe first IranAir plane took off from Toulouse (in France) and a passenger on-board included Airbus’ chief Fabrice Bregier, BBC reported. The first landing in Tehran is symbolic of Iran’s emergence from decades of isolation (during sanctions).According to Iran’s state TV, Thursday’s landing was a historic moment for the Middle East nation, which also signals that the era of sanctions has ended for the country. “This is a prelude to the delivery of other aircraft and the renovation of Iran’s ageing air fleet,” BBC cited the local TV report as saying.According to experts, the IranAir fleet is among the oldest fleet in the world and in order to keep flying (in the sanctions era), the airline had relied on smuggling aircraft parts into the country. It was reported last month that the state-run carrier of the Iranian republic, has agreed to buy 100 planes from Airbus in a deal valued at about $10 billion. The first delivery of seven to eight aircraft would be completed by 2017. The deal comprises purchase of both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft and will be formally sealed shortly.Iran’s 14 airlines, including state-owned IranAir, have a combined capacity to fly 22 million passengers every year, according to aviation research body Centre for Aviation. The country’s other carriers include ATA Airlines, Atrak Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Mahan Air, Meraj Airlines, Qeshm Airlines, Taban Air and Zagros Airlines.last_img read more

GOP Reps Introduce Bill to Carry Concealed Weapons in DC

first_imgIn the wake of a shooting that left Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and two federal police officers wounded, Reps. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) introduced legislation which would allow representatives and senators to carry handguns for their own protection.  However, with District officials and residents firmly opposed to open-carry gun legislation, lines are being drawn between city rights and the safety of legislators.(AP Photo/Al Behrman)The shooting took place in the morning hours of June 14 on an Alexandria, Va. baseball field as Scalise and others practiced for an impending Congressional baseball game at Nationals Park. A handwritten list reportedly found by the FBI in a van belonging to the shooter, James Hodgkinson, contained the names of several conservative Republican lawmakers, including Brooks himself as well as Reps. Scot DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) and Morgan Griffith (R-Va.).In introducing the bill, Loudermilk argued that increased hostility and open aggression toward elected officials required lawmakers to be able to defend themselves. “If this had happened in Georgia, [Hodgkinson] wouldn’t have gotten too far,” Loudermilk said. “I had a staff member who was in his car maybe 20 yards behind the shooter, who was pinned in his car, who back in Georgia carries a 9-millimeter in his car. He had a clear shot at him. But here, we’re not allowed to carry any weapons here.”Brooks, who was at the field when the shooting occurred, said the District’s open-carry ban leaves him and others vulnerable to similar attacks. “Right now, when we’re in Washington, D.C., once we’re off the complex . . . we’re still high-profile targets, but we have absolutely no way to defend ourselves because of Washington, D.C.’s rather restrictive gun laws,” Brooks said.  “You’ve got a situation where, yes, this one shooter has been killed, but he’s a member of an organization that applauded what transpired on Wednesday,” Brooks added. “And so those of us who are on this assassination list . . . it behooves us to be a little bit more wary than we otherwise might be.”Whatever the personal threat may be to elected officials, D.C. lawmakers and residents said the solution cannot include usurping the will of residents. In a statement, D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton said that D.C. local gun safety laws are in place for larger reasons.“If Representative Brooks believes it is the best policy for members of Congress to carry guns at all times, why not introduce a bill that allows members to carry guns anywhere they go?  The truth is Representative Brooks wants to misuse congressional power over the District of Columbia to single out our local jurisdiction,” Norton said.  “After last week’s shooting, Representative Brooks called for sending a message of unity and bipartisanship to the American people. He is undermining that goal with his attack on D.C.’s local gun safety laws.”D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) said she could not take a position without reviewing the legislation.“We, of course, with the council of the District of Columbia pass the laws that we think help make D.C. safer and stronger, and that’s going to be our view,” she said at a news conference on June 15. “I don’t have any idea what [Loudermilk’s legislation] is, so I would have to see it first.”D.C. Councilmember Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), who is chairman of the council’s judiciary and public safety committee, said the District should be able to make its own laws without interference from Congress. “It feels like, unfortunately, here they go again,” he said. “The voters of the District of Columbia should be the ones who decide what our gun laws are.”last_img read more

This new technology provides accurate, precise and real-time tracking to keep radiation focused on the tumor resulting in fewer side effects and a better quality of life for the patient.Using miniaturized, non-ionizing, non-radioactive implanted devices called Beacon transponders, the Calypso System continuously and accurately tracks the location of cancerous tumors. For example, these rice-sized Beacons are implanted into the prostate or prostatic bed during an outpatient procedure, and are then tracked with a 4-D localization and tracking system. If the prostate or tumor bed moves out of range during treatment, the radiation beam turns off until it comes back into range again.The real-time position and motion information provided by the Calypso System offers objective reassurance that radiation treatment is delivered precisely to the prescribed target, not to surrounding healthy tissue.While radiation to the pelvic area can affect urinary, bowel and sexual function, research has shown that patients treated with Calypso had significantly fewer side effects in bowel urgency and frequency, fecal incontinence and urinary irritation. They also had fewer sexual side effects. Calypso technology allows the radiation oncologist to safely and maximally cover cancerous areas while minimizing normal tissue exposure to radiation.Studies have also shown that patients who have undergone the Calypso procedure versus other similar treatments, have lived longer, healthier lives. The Calypso’s GPS for the Body is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved technology to track tumors in real time. Calypso can be used in primary radiation treatment or as an adjunctive treatment to surgery.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more News | July 27, 2012 Real-time Imaging and Tracking Means Safer Radiation Therapy for Patients News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more Related Content News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read more News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

German prosecutors shelve Nazi massacre probe

first_imgAssociated PressBERLIN (AP) – Prosecutors in Germany said Monday they have shelved their investigation of 17 former German SS soldiers who were part of a unit involved in a Nazi wartime massacre of more than 500 civilians in Italy, because of a lack of evidence.The decision brings to a close a decade-long investigation of the former members of the 16th SS-Panzergrenadier Division “Reichsfuehrer SS,” eight of whom are still alive, on allegations they were involved in the Aug. 12, 1944, killings in the Tuscan village of Sant’Anna di Stazzema. Top Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help The case of Sant’Anna di Stazzema had lain dormant for years until the 1990s when Italian authorities discovered reports on the killings drawn up by Allied forces at the end of the war, and began their own investigation. Ten of the suspects were tried there in absentia, and were convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 2005 for taking part in the massacre.Extradition requests from Italy for some of the men have been unsuccessful, partially because they were under investigation in Germany, and it was not immediately clear what effect the decision to shelve the investigation in Stuttgart would have.Italian authorities have also asked in some of the cases for the suspects to serve their Italian sentences in Germany, but no decision has yet been made on that, German authorities said.Following the Stuttgart prosecutors’ decision, Italian lawmaker Paolo Corsini said he would ask the Italian government to request the files on the case to see what else could be done “to avoid impunity for the responsible.”“We are pained and disheartened by the news that there will not be a trial…” he said. “However, we are not resigned.”_____Colleen Barry contributed to this story from Milan.

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project The SS unit descended upon the village that morning ostensibly to hunt for partisans, but instead rounded up and shot villagers, according to survivors. Others were herded into basements and other enclosed spaces and killed with hand grenades.Historical documents are not clear on precisely how many people were killed that day, but the most commonly cited number is 560. Many were children, women and elderly people, and the slaughter was one of the worst in a series of atrocities by Nazi troops in central and northern Italy during World War II.But Stuttgart prosecutors said the evidence against the men _ whose names were not released in accordance with German privacy laws _ is not sufficient.Although they were part of the unit involved in the killings, in order to bring charges of murder or accessory to murder against them, there needs to be evidence showing they were directly involved, the prosecutors’ office said in a statement. The statute of limitations has expired on all other possible charges.“Belonging to a Waffen-SS unit that was deployed to Sant’Anna di Stazzema cannot replace the need to prove individual guilt,” the prosecutors said. “Rather, for every defendant it must be proven that he took part in the massacre and in which form.” Comments   Share   Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Daylast_img read more
