Police were called to Regents Park Road, NW1, at 12.55pm on Wednesday 12th March, following reports of an assault. Officers from Camden Borough attended and a man in his mid-40s was arrested on suspicion of common assault.
He was taken into custody and subsequently cautioned for common assault. The victim, a man, did not require medical assistance at the scene.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -
The National Organization for Women announced Monday it is pushing for State Attorney Angela Corey’s resignation over the case of Marissa Alexander.
Corey has arguably been right in the middle of some controversial court cases. The cases range from the George Zimmerman trial, to the Michael Dunn trial and now to the case of Alexander.
Alexander is facing up to 60 years in prison for shooting toward her estranged husband, which supporters of Alexander said was in self-defense.
Rod Sullivan teaches law at the Florida Coastal School of Law and doesn’t think the publicity will make Corey stand down.
“I don’t think it will have any impact at all,” said Sullivan. “Angela Corey has been in her position for years and I think she’s immune from that sort of public pressure.”
The Universe is incredibly regular. The variation of the cosmos’ temperature across the entire sky is tiny: a few millionths of a degree, no matter which direction you look. Yet the same light from the very early cosmos that reveals the Universe’s evenness also tells astronomers a great deal about the conditions that gave rise to irregularities like stars, galaxies, and (incidentally) us.
That light is the cosmic microwave background, and it provides some of the best knowledge we have about the structure, content, and history of the Universe. But it also contains a few mysteries: on very large scales, the cosmos seems to have a certain lopsidedness. That slight asymmetry is reflected in temperature fluctuations much larger than any galaxy, aligned on the sky in a pattern facetiously dubbed “the axis of evil.”
The lopsidedness is real, but cosmologists are divided over whether it reveals anything meaningful about the fundamental laws of physics. The fluctuations are sufficiently small that they could arise from random chance. We have just one observable Universe, but nobody sensible believes we can see all of it. With a sufficiently large cosmos beyond the reach of our telescopes, the rest of the Universe may balance the oddity that we can see, making it a minor, local variation.
To measure the physical size of these anisotropies, researchers turn the whole-sky map of temperature fluctuations into something called a power spectrum. That’s akin to the process of taking light from a galaxy and finding the component wavelengths (colors) that make it up. The power spectrum encompasses fluctuations over the whole sky down to very small variations in temperature. (For those with some higher mathematics knowledge, this process involves decomposing the temperature fluctuations in spherical harmonics.)
The draft Radio Equipment Directive outlines a range of harmonized rules for bringing “radio equipment,” which includes mobile phones and modems, on the market. The rules aim to make sure that the increasing range of devices don’t interfere with each other and respect health and safety requirements. Part of the directive focused on reducing waste.
MEPs called for a renewed effort to develop a common charger for certain categories of radio equipment—particularly mobile phones. They amended the draft law to stipulate that the ability to work with common chargers will be an essential requirement for radio equipment. It will be up to the European Commission to decide which specific types of radio equipment will have to meet the requirement.
Rapporteur Barbara Weiler said that the directive is “an efficient tool to prevent interference between different ratio equipment devices.”
“I am especially pleased that we agreed on the introduction of a common charger. This serves the interests both of consumers and the environment. It will put an end to charger clutter and 51,000 tonnes of electronic waste annually,” she said.
The proposed design for a universal charger uses a Micro USB connector—already used by many mobile manufacturers, including Samsung and Nokia.
LONDON: A tequila shot or two can bring alive even a dying party. And it now seems that it can also do wonders for your blood sugar.
A sweetener created from the plant used to make tequila has been found to be highly effective in lowering blood glucose levels in those who have type 2 diabetes and also help them and the obese lose weight.
The secret is in what is called agavins, a natural form of sugar found in the agave plant which are non-digestible and can act as a dietary fibre, so they would not raise blood glucose.
Scientists fed a group of mice a standard diet and added agavins to their daily water.
They weighed the mice daily and checked their glucose blood levels weekly.
Most mice that drank agavins ate less, lost weight and their blood glucose levels decreased when compared to other sweeteners such glucose, fructose, sucrose, agave syrup and aspartame.
“We have found that since agavins reduce glucose levels and increase GLP-1, they also increase the amount of insulin,” said researcher Mercedes G Lopez.
A newly apportioned state Republican representative in Wyoming is standing by claims he made at the height of the AIDS panic in a book entitled The Death Sentence of AIDS: Vital Information For You and Your Family’s Health and Safety.
Among the more outlandish claims in the book, which was self-published by Rep. Troy Mader (R-Gillette) in 1984, are that “[h]omosexuals…purposely infected women to pass AIDS infection into the straight population,” and that “[m]any homosexuals demand the right to have sexual acts with children of any age, including infants.”

Let’s just take a look at who joined the Tallahassee protest. On hand was Floyd Eric Meadows of Acworth, Ga., who was once in the Klan and had a picture on his Facebook page wearing an SS bolt patch and a 1488 patch. Gina Brashear of Fort Myers, Fla., who likes to “like” pictures posted on the LOS Facebook page, was there, too. Brashear has a long history in white supremacist circles, having posted in 2008 that she has been “a member of several white websites, and an active member in my community for defending our race” on Vanguard News Network, whose motto is “No Jews. Just Right.” For years, Brashear’s avatar on VNN was an image of a pistol pointed at President Obama with what appears to be a bullet wound in the president’s forehead with the text: “Get it over already.”
Although there are several photographs of a woman said to be Gina Brashear holding a banner in Tallahassee last weekend, Brashear refused to confirm her attendance at the rally, but she did tell Hatewatch she is “against amnesty, period.” Brashear, 51, was arrested for felony aggravated stalking last September.
The extremist hit parade didn’t stop there. William Flowers, whose Facebook page warns of white genocide, appeared to be the photographer last Saturday. The Uvalda protest’s main organizer, Michael O. Cushman of Aiken, S.C., who is a former member of the neo-Nazi National Alliance, also showed.
Nearly two thirds of food stamp expenditures go to children, the elderly, and the disabled. The other third goes mostly to the working poor, many of whom are people trapped in jobs that don’t provide a liveable wage.
Tens of millions of American children are among the recipients of food stamps, according to a new report that casts light on who benefits from the program that has been the subject of heated political debate.
The annual report from the United States Department of Agriculture showed that about 45 percent of food stamp benefits went to children under 18, totaling about 20 million youngsters. Nine percent of recipients were age 60 or older, and nearly 10 percent were disabled adults who were under 60, according to the analysis of food stamp usage for the fiscal year that ended in September 2012.
Mercury - the solar system’s most spectacular planet, known to be closest to the sun, is shrinking in size far more than believed till now.
New evidence by NASA’s messenger aircraft has confirmed that the planet has shrunk up to seven kilometres in radius over the past four billion years - much more than earlier estimates.
The new finding solves an apparent enigma about Mercury’s evolution.
Older images of surface features indicated that, despite cooling over its lifetime, the rocky planet had barely shrunk at all.
