Police authorities say the body of Suzette York, 49, was found shortly after 11am on Wednesday morning in a classroom at Memphis Junior Academy in Memphis, Tennessee, United States. Police also state a 17 year-old male student, Eduardo Marmolejo, was later taken into custody and has been charged with first-degree murder. Reports indicate Ms. York had been a science and math teacher and was currently serving as the principal at the private academy affiliated with the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

According to police, Ms. York was found lying in a pool of blood by another teacher at the school on Wednesday. The alleged assailant cited dislike and anger with York as motivating the attack. The court appointed two defense attorneys, who requested mental evaluation of the defendant.

A former student of the school described Ms. York as “a wonderful person who was very much involved with her students”. The mayor of Memphis described the incident as “tragic all the way around”.

Flight recorders from Air France Flight 447 found

Flight recorders from Air France Flight 447 found

Officials from France’s aviation accident investigation agency, the Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA), announced on Tuesday that they had recovered the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) of Air France Flight 447. It was located and brought to the surface by a Remora 6000 unmanned submarine, then taken aboard the Île de Sein, one of the vessels taking part in the recovery and salvage efforts.

This came two days after an announcement on Sunday that the crash-survivable memory unit of the flight data recorder (FDR) of the aircraft had been located and brought to the surface. The chassis of the FDR was located on April 27, with the memory unit missing. It was found a short distance from the chassis. It was also brought to the surface by the Remora 6000.

With the recovery of both recorders, which are reported to be “in good condition”, French officials hope to determine what caused the Airbus A330-200 to crash into the Atlantic Ocean on June 1, 2009, when it departed Rio de Janeiro’s Galeão International Airport before it was lost 600 miles (965 km) off the coast of Brazil en route to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport with 228 passengers and crew on board.

If you were to throw a computer into the ocean, imagine how all the parts would eventually split and you have the corrosive effects of seawater and the depths involved.

The leading theory at the moment is that the crew received incorrect air speed readings from the aircraft’s pitot tubes, devices which measure how fast the aircraft is traveling. Experts say the tubes may have become iced over, causing the crash. The plane’s Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) sent out 24 messages over a four-minute long period stating numerous problems and warnings, including incorrect air speed warnings occurring aboard the aircraft, just prior to it going down.

However, chief operating officer of the International Bureau of Aviation, Phil Seymour, speaking to CNN, believes the memory unit will not be of much use to investigators saying because of the depth it was located at, “If you were to throw a computer into the ocean, imagine how all the parts would eventually split and you have the corrosive effects of seawater and the depths involved.” Seymour believes the wreckage will help reveal what happened as more is recovered.

“It may be that the more wreckage they find will help them to piece it all together, which bit by bit could help them build a picture of what caused the plane to come down,” he added.

A BEA spokesperson had agreed with that possibility a few days earlier when speaking to the Associated Press about the recovery of the flight data recorder. “We can’t say in advance that we’re going to be able to read it until it’s been opened,” the spokesperson said. As

The wreckage of the Airbus A330-200, was found back on April 8 at a depth of 3,800 and 4,000 meters (2,070 to 2,190 fathoms or 12,467 feet and 13,123 feet), by a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, using a Remus robotic submarine and its side-scan sonar. After the wreckage was found, another Remus robot submarine with cameras was sent down to the site, where it filmed bodies in the wreckage. The location of the recorders were localized within 2 square miles (5 square kilometers) of the flight’s last position last year.

In March, a French judge placed the European aircraft maker Airbus and Air France under investigation for possible involuntary manslaughter charges in the 2009 crash. Both are paying the cost of the search which is estimated to be $12.7 million (nine million euro). The crash is the deadliest in Air France’s history.

German retail giant Rewe to open Penny Market stores in Romania

Wednesday, March 30, 2005German retail corporation Rewe plans to open several Penny Market discount stores in Romania in the middle of this year. Rewe is mainly interested in opening stores in cities such as Ploie?ti, Câmpina, Tecuci, Foc?ani, One?ti, Craiova, Caracal, Constan?a, Medgidia, Alexandria and Ro?iori de Vede. Most of these cities have populations of below 100,000 people, and Rewe is hoping to take advantage of a market that has not been highly tapped into, since most of Romania’s larger cities, such as Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Ia?i, already have multiple large supermarkets and discount stores.

Rewe also announced that, over the next few years, it intends to open a total of 50 Penny Market and XXL Mega Stores in Romania. Rewe already operates 14 several highly-successful Billa supermarkets throughout Romania, mainly in large cities, as well as 8 Selgros stores. Rewe has previously made announcements that it wishes to expand its Billa and Selgros brands more extensively. The total value of the company’s investment in Romania is around 200 million euro.

Romania is currently going through a retail boom, especially in the supermarket and discount stores area. Large corporations such as Rewe and Carrefour have established very successful branches in Romania, and other retail giants such as Tesco and WalMart have announced their intention to enter the Romanian market, which is the largest in Southeastern Europe.

The mini MAX discount company said it would open three stores in Romania, in April-May of this year, in the cities of Slatina, Târgovi?te and Urziceni. It plans to open up to 100 stores until the year 2010. Meanwhile, Tengelmann, Rewe’s rival, said it would invest 200 million euro in Romania to open 120 supermarkets in the next five years.

To stay ahead of the curve, the Small Business Administration recommends that business professionals looking for success are taking advantage of every opportunity to learn more about the changes in the business world. One opportunity is business management training in NJ.

Business management training in NJ can improve manager motivational and recruiting skills as well as provide models and proven business processes that increase efficiency and effectiveness. Managing the workloads of the team can be stressful but knowing how to effectively distribute tasks and how to assess productivity are the keys to a successful project. The best practices in leadership, management, business strategies, and information and eliminate the time-wasting and irrelevant, extraneous material.

Some business management training courses are offered in person, and some are entirely online. The benefit to an in-person class is that it provides face-to-face time with the instructor. However, this typically makes the course more expensive because of higher overhead costs. In addition, course schedules are not flexible because class times are set before people sign up for the class. An online training course provides tons of flexibility at a lower cost. Many still allow for access to trainers or instructors via live chat or email.

The curriculum for business management training courses differ based on who is offering the course. Many reputable training companies will create their own curriculum based on industry needs. Other training facilities will reuse the same course agenda for years before reevaluating the content. Before signing up for a course, read the course details to determine if that business management training course is right for you.

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Edgar Lungu, the current President of Zambia, is to undergo medical treatment aboard after collapsing while on stage in Lusaka on Sunday during a ceremony for International Women’s Day. The Presidency announced yesterday that Lungu will have throat surgery abroad.

Doctors on Sunday diagnosed him with malaria. Lungu spoke to the press from hospital on Sunday saying “I am looking forward to going home. Doctors have done their tests and they have found traces of malaria, but they are doing further tests and they will let me know what next after before the end of the day”.

A later announcement identified his condition instead as a narrowing of the oesophagus, which he had previously received treatment for three decades ago. Despite not announcing where Lungu would head to be treated the Presidency did say he would undergo a “high-tech medical procedure which is currently unavailable in Zambia”.

Lungu, who only became the Zambian President in January, has previously dispelled rumours of his health. During the election he fought back against comments about his health calling it a “smear” campaign against him.

Some in Zambia have claimed the presidency is “jinxed”. Lungu’s predecessor Michael Sata died in October of last year at the age of 77 in London, England. Sata died only six years after serving President Levy Mwanawasa died following a stroke.

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Ivy Bean, thought to have been the oldest person using the popular social networking site Twitter, has died at age 104.

By the end of her life, Bean had 53,535 followers (a term used on Twitter to indicate you are watching a person’s posts) on the site and was something of an internet phenomenon. In 2008, she became known as the oldest person on Facebook, a title held previously by a 97-year-old French man. Bean frequently updated her Twitter page with videos and descriptions of activities in her daily life that included her winning of the Gold Medal in Frisbee in the Over-75 Olympics in Bradford, Northern England as well as recipes and meeting former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

At the beginning of July, Bean was admitted to hospital suffering from jaundice. On July 23rd, Bean returned to the care home where she was a resident, but was no longer able to operate her Twitter account. Manager of the care home Pat Wright took over the account and began posting on Bean’s behalf.

It was posted on July 26th that Bean was in a poor condition and yesterday, Wright posted “Ivy passed away peacefully at 12.08 this morning”.

Many of Bean’s followers posted messages of condolence, making Bean the second-most discussed topic on the Twitter yesterday. Among her followers were Peter Andre and Chris Evans.

Ivy Bean was born November 8, 1905, seven years before the telephone network was established.

Baby Clothes It’s Hard To Live Without

Get More Information Here:

By Nina Edwards

For those who are new to parenthood, they might think of shopping for the types of things you might find at a baby shower. Most believe that if the baby’s outfits are bright with attractive designs, it is enough. Though you might find that shades and patterns are simply just one basic factor in picking clothing. One will probably forget what is important when searching for baby outfits. With ever changing weather and other sorts of accidents, more suitable attire could be required. The unexpected times in daily life should always be considered when dressing your child.

Although getting your baby in a laced velvet gown will look adorable for a family christmas card, it is not going to be practical for day to day wear. Babies will get a mixture of spit, slobber, drool, and throw up on their clothing almost every day, so putting your baby in extravagant or dainty clothing will make it all the more irritating when you are going to be repeatedly switching and washing their baby clothing. This won’t imply that you can’t have cute outfits for your little one, but it’s far more sensible to save them for holiday events, pictures or outings to loved ones, rather than every day wear.

Handy onesies together with snap buttons, baby tee shirts, and skirts or maybe trousers which are easy on and off are your very best choices when considering everyday baby wear. You need to have ample clothing to provide your child with a nice and clean outfit whenever they spit up, or otherwise require a change of clothing. As a rule of thumb, you should have about five fresh outfits readily available at a time. Having enough clothing for about five different outfits will make sure that you’ll always have something to change your baby into, while keeping away from the trap of getting too many items of clothing and being overwhelmed with drawers brimming with clothes that won’t fit the baby in many months.

Essential Baby Clothing

8 To 10 Newborn Bodysuits/Onesies

The toddler bodysuit or onesie can be used as a foundational item of clothing to provide your baby warmth and relaxation, or it could be put on all on its own. A onesie has a snap between the legs, making them great for everyday wear and diaper switching. truly can’t get it wrong with a basic onesie for a baby. It is sensible, relaxing and a very necessary item in the baby’s collection. Some onesies are actually water-resistant! Waterproof clothing may be a way to prevent your baby from becoming damp beneath their clothing, be it from drool, perspiration, or rainwater.

Minimum of 5 to 7 Units Of Sleepwear

Baby sleepwear is equally as important as their day to day wear. The sort of sleepwear you purchase needs to be warm enough to keep them relaxed during the night yet practical enough for quick late night diaper changing. Sleepwear for babies is available in an assortment of different styles, including two piece outfits with slacks and a shirt, night gowns, onesies as well as wearable blankets. Regardless of what type of baby sleepwear you purchase, make sure the fit will not be too loose or too restricted — unintentional suffocation has been associated with poorly fit sleepwear.

Without all of these essential items I would find it quite challenging to juggle baby care and doing the washing. Having backup clothing ready will make your life less difficult as babies will always make a mess. Having several of different items will give you a longer period to get laundry done. Another excellent product that I suggest moms purchase a couple of might be mattress protectors, when babies are growing up they’re just surely gonna have accidents at night. Having extra mattress protectors will minimize a lot of future problems. Now that we’ve looked at bedding and apparel, let us mention footwear.

Baby footwear should be soft and as natural as possible allowing for the babies feet to grow properly. Everyday shoes should be so comfy that it seems exactly like walking around without any. Booties with grip are definitely the best as the little one begins to crawl or even walk.
