Mysterious UFO spotted near Vikram Sarabhai Space Center in Kerala police launch

first_imgA UFO spotted recently in Saudi Arabia (Representational Purpose)YouTube: Mavi777A mysterious unidentified flying object (UFO) hovered multiple times in the night skies of Kovalam and Kochiveli coastal areas in Kerala. The police later clarified that a drone equipped with a camera had hovered above Vikram Sarabhai Space Center. The police and intelligence department have now started a joint investigation to unveil the mysteries surrounding this incident.It was a local police officer engaged in night patrolling who initially spotted the UFO. Police have taken this event seriously as the drone flew over one of the most secured locations in the area.Usually, movie shooting crew fly drones in these areas during day times. On the day of the incident, nobody had sought permission from the police to fly drones in the night, and this has added up to the seriousness surrounding the sighting.After the Pulwama attack, the central government had issued alerts to coastal states like Kerala stating that terrorists may use the sea as a medium to infiltrate into the country. Earlier, during the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, terrorists including Ajmal Kasab had entered the country via sea, and they carried out a brutal massacre which resulted in the deaths of 166 people.It was previously reported that Kerala is slowly emerging as one of the hubs of terrorists in India. A couple of years back, several reports had surfaced stating that a handful of youngsters from the state had fled to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).A couple of days back, the White House had warned that Pakistan’s aggression against India is not at all acceptable. It should be noted that this is one of the strongest message ever issued by the Trump administration as military tension between Pakistan and India threatens to spill over into all-out war.last_img read more

Death toll in Afghan election centre attack reaches 57

first_img.Afghan shopkeeper Ali Rasuli was standing at the end of a long queue of people waiting to pick up their national ID certificates on Sunday when a fireball erupted in front of him.The suicide bombing outside a voter and ID registration centre in Kabul killed at least 57 people, injured 119 and briefly blinded Rasuli, leaving him with leg and abdominal injuries.“I found myself covered in blood, with dead people-women and children-around me,” 26-year-old Rasuli told AFP from his bed at Kabul’s Isteqlal Hospital where around 50 of the wounded had been rushed for treatment.The smell of blood permeated the hospital. In the morgue around a dozen bodies lay on the floor, including those of several children.Around 40 other wounded were taken to a trauma centre run by Italian NGO Emergency. Hundreds of relatives stood outside on the street waiting for news.Rasuli was among hundreds outside the registration centre on Sunday morning waiting to pick up their tazkira, or national ID document, which Afghans need to register to vote in legislative elections scheduled for October 20.The government has been pushing people to register at more than 7,000 polling centres around the country as it seeks to hold credible and fraud-free elections.“They all wanted to vote,” Rasuli said.Ali Jan was one of them.The 21-year-old student, who had planned to take part in his first-ever elections in October, tried to pick up his tazkira on Saturday but was turned away because officials had run out of paper.He went back on Sunday in hopes of better luck but instead was caught up in the blast.“They said the tazkira is needed to vote, but if they keep killing us how can we vote?” he told AFP from his hospital bed, his head bandaged.It was at least the third attack on a voter registration centre since 14 April when authorities began a two-month process to register up to 14 million adults ahead of long-delayed parliamentary and district council elections.Outside Isteqlal Hospital grief mixed with anger among anxious relatives waiting for news of loved ones.They directed their fury at the Afghan government and its apparent inability to protect ordinary people from suicide attacks.“Our patience is running out. This government should take responsibility for the lives of all these innocent people lost every day,” a man called Hussain, whose cousin was wounded in the blast, told AFP.“Nobody will go to vote anymore.”last_img read more

Mayor Grows Talent Pool With City Solicitor Pick

first_img“Baltimore is at an historic intersection as it seeks to continue to rebuild itself as a thriving, diverse, and welcoming community, one truly on the move to greater heights,” he added.When he leaves the bench to take the job as the city’s lawyer at the end of August, Davis will end what will be a thirty year career as a judge.Davis, a Baltimore native who attended high school in Massachusetts, college in Pennsylvania and law school at the University of Maryland School of Law, was first an associate judge in for the state District Court in 1987 later moving to the state Circuit Court.  President Bill Clinton appointed him as judge for the U.S. District Court for Maryland in 1995.  He was appointed to the 4th Circuit in 2009 by President Barack Obama and obtained senior status in 2014.Steve Klepper, a Baltimore-based appellate attorney, said Davis is well respected in the legal community.“He earned great respect from his time when he was a University of Maryland law professor,” Klepper said adding that Davis “is a judge who is unafraid of saying interesting things” and is not afraid to address topics other judges will not; “all within ethical bounds” of what a judge can do.The appointment of Davis continues a line of what observers call “top talent” being recruited by the Pugh administration.“This is one of the things you get when you elect somebody with years of experience,” said Mileah Kromer, director of the Sarah T. Hughes Field Politics Center at Goucher College.Kromer adds Pugh knows the inner workings of government on a city and state level and understands the type of people needed for the roles needed.  And she has tried to pick people to help round out areas of potential weakness.Pugh, herself, has often said she doesn’t have all of the answers but would defer to others who might have more expertise in an area.For example, Jill Carter, who now heads the city Office of Civil Rights and Wage Enforcement, was a long time delegate in Annapolis who supported police accountability, fair housing practices and other equality issues.“[Carter] is somebody I think gives her some serious credibility with the more progressive community in Baltimore City,” Kromer said.Peter Hammen, another former long-time delegate, oversees 12 city agencies as chief of operations.  While he was in the legislature, Hammen was chairman of the Health and Government Operations Committee for more than a decade.James T. Smith Jr., chief of strategic alliance, is not only a former Baltimore County Executive, he’s a former circuit judge and state transportation secretary.Pugh has more appointments to announce.  She has yet to pick permanent leaders for the departments of transportation or recreation and parks.An announcement is coming in the next few weeks concerning new commissioners for housing and community development. Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh’s most recent major appointment continues a streak of top talent joining the new administration.Baltimore native Andre M. Davis is the latest strong candidate to join Mayor Catherine Pugh’s administration. (Courtesy Photo)The mayor announced on May 3 the appointment of U.S. Circuit Judge Andre M. Davis as city solicitor.Davis, a senior judge on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, simultaneously announced his retirement from the bench the same day; calling it a “mixed blessing.”“It has been an extraordinary privilege and a high honor to have served the people of our city, state and country in the important work of safeguarding the rule of law,” he said in a statement.last_img read more

The Ministry is committed to continue to open more offices along well with a review of the agreement we have with various ministries and other authorities to enable us to give better service to the public in Gozo,” she said.Minister Caruana added that the coming weeks will see the start of renovation work at the Ministry for Gozo, including the Department of Inland Revenue.WhatsApp SharePrint <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more
