S. Korea’s Son released for full Asian Games under Tottenham deal

New shuttle launch set for June

first_img“We don’t see any showstoppers in front of us … but there is still a lot of work to be done,” said Bill Gerstenmaier, NASA’s associate administrator for space operations. Golfball-sized hail left thousands of dings on the foam insulation on Atlantis’ fuel tank as it sat on the launch pad in February. The space shuttle was rolled off the launch pad and sent back for repairs to the Vehicle Assembly Building, forcing NASA to miss the original March 15 launch date. The foam is used to prevent dangerous ice from building up. CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – NASA will try to launch Atlantis on the first space shuttle mission of the year in early June, almost three months later than originally planned, so that technicians can finish repairing its hail-damaged fuel tank, officials said Tuesday. The new launch date is set for no earlier than June 8. NASA managers had been studying for weeks whether to finish repairing the tank and use it for Atlantis’ mission or swap it out with another tank. But NASA managers said they were pleased with the progress of repairs that already have been made. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Manchester City face ‘five finals’ in Europe- Guardiola

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says the Premier League giants face ‘five finals’ in their Champions League group © AFP / Daniel ROLANDHEIDELBERG, Germany, Oct 1 – Pep Guardiola says his Manchester City side effectively face the first of “five finals” in the Champions League group stages at Hoffenheim on Tuesday following defeat in their opening game.City’s 2-1 loss to Lyon in Manchester a fortnight ago meant they arrived in Germany desperate for a win over Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, who are hosting their first ever Champions League home match. “We have five finals now. We lost the first game, so now we must win each one — tomorrow is the first final,” Guardiola said when asked about the Lyon defeat.“Maybe we need to suffer a bit.“It (the Champions League) is a top quality level competition, each team is so good and it makes things complicated.“We weren’t so good against Lyon in the first half.“Since I have been here, we have always qualified comfortably (for the knock-out stages) and maybe this shows what a tough competition it is.”Kevin de Bruyne trained with the City team before they left Manchester on Monday, for the first time since suffering a knee injury in August, but the Hoffenheim game comes too soon for the Belgium playmaker.Guardiola will be back on the touchline again after serving a ban for the Lyon game following his sending off in last season’s quarter-final defeat to Liverpool.“I prefer to be on closer to my players, rather than in the stands,” he said at a press conference in Heidelberg, neat Hoffenheim.The Spaniard poured praise on opposite number Julian Nagelsmann, 31, the youngest coach in Champions League history, who counts Guardiola as one his inspirations.Nagelsmann took charge aged just 29 in February 2016 and has steered Hoffenheim from the brink of relegation to the Champions League inside two years.“We are in contact through other people, I am really impressed, he took over Hoffenheim in a bad situation and every year he is getting better,” said Guardiola.“Tomorrow is the first time his team will face mine and I am looking forward to it.“He is only 31 and already managing a team in a good competition, I am happy to see a manager of his quality to produce some nice football and he will have a good career.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bogus bill passer nabbed

first_imghttp://www.insidesocal.com/sgvcrime GLENDORA – A sharp-eyed Wal-Mart cashier spotted a bogus $100 bill, called store security and helped detain a man on suspicion of attempting to pass the fake early Wednesday, officials said. As a result, Simon Fasheh, 29, of Walnut, was arrested about 3:20 a.m. on suspicion of passing counterfeit currency, Glendora police Sgt. Ted Groszewski said. “He admitted the bill was counterfeit and was trying to launder it for merchandise and real money,” Groszewski said. “Fortunately merchants are real good at spotting fakes. They handle money daily.” Glendora police notified the U.S. Secret Service about the phoney bill, authorities said. Fasheh is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail in the Glendora city jail, Groszewski said. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

Newlywed Bandits caught in Las Vegas

first_imgTwo suspected bank robbers were caught Sunday in Las Vegas, ending a crime spree that authorities say started in the San Gabriel Valley. Rayceana Racheal Rocha, 22, and Paul Harlen Meyercamp Jr., 26, dubbed the “Newlwed Bandits,” were arrested by The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in the evening, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. The two allegedly robbed a pedestrian before carjacking a vehicle, Eimiller said. Police chased the suspects until Rocha crashed the car, said Eimiller. Rocha was immediately arrested, but Meyercamp ran but was later captured, she said. Authorities are also investigating whether Rocha and Meyercamp may have committed a bank robbery in Las Vegas, said Eimiller. Rocha and Meyercamp are suspected in five bank robberies, officials said. The bank robberies spanned from Oct. 18 to Nov. 8, said Eimiller. Crimes occurred in El Monte, Duarte, Diamond Bar, Claremont, and La Habra, officials said. Meyercamp is on parole for burglary and assault and is a suspected La Puente gang member, Eimiller said. Rocha is enrolled as a student at Rio Hondo Community College in Whittier, and may have attended classes during the alleged string of bank robberies, said Eimiller. Both suspects are former residents of El Monte, she added. While Rocha and Meyercamp are not believed to be married, they are involved in some kind of romantic relationship, Eimiller said.After information was released to the media, the suspects were identified by someone who recognized their picture on television, Eimiller said. “The publicity,” she said, “definitely led to their identifications.” – Brian Day AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

FORMER COUNCILLOR ORDERED TO HAND OVER ALL PHONES IN HARASSMENT CASE

first_imgA former Donegal County Councillor has been ordered to hand over all his phones to Gardai after being accused of harassing his former partner.Former county councillor Gareth ReidGareth Reid, a former Fine Gael councillor, faces numerous charges including thirteen of domestic violence. The 31 year old father-of-three appeared in court today after being detained in custody for a week after revoking his bail conditions.Reid, of Lawnsdale, Ballybofey, faces numerous charges including domestic violence and criminal damage.A previous court sitting heard claims that he had phoned the woman 30 times over one weekend.The woman was so in fear of Reid that she has left Co Donegal and was living elsewhere.Solicitor Kieran Dillon said a week in custody had had a major effect on his client.“A week has passed and my client is a different person. He has had time to reflect in the past seven days and he has a different perspective on life.“His employment is just there and if he is not back at work as a lorry driver it will have consequences. It is also a very special time of year and there will be consequences for that if he is not working,” said Mr Dillon.However Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told the court that Gardai had no choice but to object to the granting of bail.He also said he wanted an order to recover ALL of Reid’s phone and not just “a select one.”Judge Paul Kelly replied “I take it that you suspect he has other phones?” to which he was told that was the suspicion.Inspector Harrison said he had good reason to oppose bail.“There is an injured party who constantly calls Gardai. If it was a one off we would not object (to bail.)“There are court orders here and he just seems to ignore them. There are domestic violence charges – thirteen of them and two for criminal damage. He has failed to sign on up to ten times.“He has pleaded guilty in the past and it’s not that he doesn’t know the consequences of what he is doing and he continues to breach the orders of the court. We just can’t consent to it,” he saidHowever Judge Paul Kelly agreed to release Reid on bail with a number of conditions.They include having not contact with the injured party and that he hand over all his phones to Gardai.FORMER COUNCILLOR ORDERED TO HAND OVER ALL PHONES IN HARASSMENT CASE was last modified: November 25th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County CouncilGareth Reidharassmentphoneslast_img read more
