Villarreal have agreed a deal to sign former Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno on a five-year contract.The left-back returns to La Liga after spending the last five years at Anfield, where he made 141 appearances and scored three goals before his release at the end of his contract in June.The 27-year-old has passed his medical with the Spanish club and is set to be presented to the press at 12:30 CEST on Wednesday, after his first training session, with only his contract left to be signed.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Moreno struggled for first-team appearances as Liverpool maintained a high standard of performances on all fronts, with Andrew Robertson nailing down a place at left-back in his place.The Spaniard made just five appearances for the Reds last term as they finished second in the Premier League and lifted their sixth Champions League trophy.He proved a divisive figure during his time in England, with his modern style of play at left-back called into question on occasions where Liverpool were left lacking defensively.Moreno has tasted success on the European front with former club Sevilla, lifting the Europa League in 2014 after defeating Benfica in a penalty shootout.He would later face his former club in another Europa League final in Liverpool colours in 2016, but this time he was on the losing side as Sevilla ran out 3-1 winners despite initially falling behind.The left-back has also represented Spain at international level, first appearing for the Under-21s in March 2013 before going on to receive his first of nine senior caps in October of the same year.Prior to joining the Reds for a reported fee of £12 million ($15m), Moreno made 62 appearances for Sevilla after coming through the youth ranks at the club, scoring three goals and registering five assists.Moreno becomes Villarreal’s third signing of the summer following deals for defensive pair Ruben Pena and Raul Albiol, who joined from Eibar and Napoli respectively.El Submarino Amarillo finished 14th in La Liga last season, seven points above the drop zone and nine points behind the Europa League places in a tight mid-table group.

A new Agri-Food Innovation Award encourages Nova Scotia farm entrepreneurs to creatively address business challenges on the farm. Agriculture Minister Brooke Taylor announced the new award today, Nov. 29. “This is a new initiative for the Department of Agriculture to assist producers who are looking at innovative and unique ways to diversify or expand their operation,” said Mr. Taylor. “The award is one way we can invest in an entrepreneur who needs some assistance to move their proposal forward.” Valued at up to $10,000, the award can be used to plan and develop the applicant’s proposal or it can be put towards a number of programs and services such as consultants, investigative travel, personal development or business development opportunities. “We have a well developed agriculture industry in Nova Scotia but there are certainly more opportunities for the sector to grow,” said Mr. Taylor. “This is one way we are encouraging producers to look at new ways of doing business and developing it.” The application form and a written description of the project idea must be submitted by Feb. 15, 2008 to the Department of Agriculture. More information is available at www.gov.ns.ca/agri/bde or 902-893-6580. This project is funded through the renewal chapter of the Canada-Nova Scotia Agricultural Policy Framework Agreement.
New Delhi: Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), the country’s biggest fuel retailer, Friday said it has made arrangements to ensure uninterrupted supply of petrol, diesel, LPG and jet fuel in Odisha and West Bengal that faced a category-4 cyclone. “In the wake of the cyclone Fani making landfall in Odisha earlier today (Friday), IOC is fully geared up and ensuring uninterrupted fuel supply from its locations in Odisha and West Bengal on the east coast,” the company said in a statement. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraThe company said its operations are largely normal across the two eastern states and it continues to supply. IOC has close to half of the retail fuel market share across the country. “Adequate stock of petroleum products such as petrol, diesel, LPG, kerosene and aviation fuel is available. The Corporation (IOC) is also actively assisting the district administration in evacuation, rescue and relief activities,” the statement said. Cyclone Fani is the worst storm since 2014 and had prompted authorities to shift more than a million people to safer places. IOC is continuing to operate its 15 million tonne per annum capacity refinery at Paradip on Odisha coast. The refinery is designed to withstand cyclones with a speed of over 200 kilometres per hour.

All necessary safety measures are in place as per the onsite emergency plan,” it said. “A control room is already in operation to coordinate the preventive and proactive measures.” IOC said refinery operations are running normal, with all units in line and the products being evacuated by the marketing terminal and through pipeline transfer. “Coastal evacuation, however, has been halted, as per plan, due to the cyclone conditions.” CISF personnel and refinery fire and safety team members have been deployed at all strategic locations for monitoring the situation. Measures have also been taken to avoid build-up of excessive water in the refinery area, if any, it said. The refinery, IOC said, is also extending all possible assistance to the district administration by providing essential relief material such as biscuits, milk powder and water pouches and supporting a cyclone centre. It is also arranging transport facilities for the evacuation of people to safer places from the two municipality blocks of Kujang and Paradip in the district.
Wealthsimple, the Canadian robo adviser company controlled by Power Financial Corp., is gaining another behemoth shareholder as it slowly gears up for an initial public offering.Allianz X, the tech investment fund of Munich-based insurer and asset manager Allianz SE, owns about 10 per cent of Wealthsimple after leading a financing round of $100 million (US$74.7 million) for the fintech startup. Allianz will also appoint a board member, the companies said Wednesday in a statement. Power, which injected fresh cash directly and through IGM Financial Inc., retains about 65 per cent.“We’re now backed by companies that represent trillions of assets globally,” Wealthsimple Chief Executive Officer Mike Katchen said in the statement. He called Allianz’s investment “a major endorsement of our company and growth trajectory.” Desmarais-backed venture fund aims to make Koho leader in banking as Wealthsimple is in investing Power Corp’s Desmarais family extends fintech push with fresh cash pool Robo-adviser Wealthsimple launches savings account with premium rate An online investment service company with low fees that tends to attract younger customers, Wealthsimple manages more than $4.5 billion for clients in Canada, the U.K. and the U.S. It now also offers services to traditional financial advisers and will spend some of its new funding on that platform, as well as exploring new products, it said.The Toronto-based firm plans to go public through an IPO within five years, Katchen has said.Power, including through its in-house venture capital fund Portag3, had previously invested $165 million in Wealthsimple. It’s been using its foray into fintech as a way to force its own companies, such as Great-West Lifeco Inc. and IGM, to improve their digital services.“We believe the coming together of large incumbent companies that understand how to build global asset managers, with innovative, digital-first companies, is the future of financial services” said Paul Desmarais III, who oversees the fintech strategy for Power and is Wealthsimple’s chairman.–With assistance from Doug Alexander.Bloomberg.com
Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. The Telegraph is running a Better Broadband campaign to highlight the damaging impact poor internet coverage is having on families and businesses in rural communities.The Government has proposed that every Briton should have the legal right to request access to internet speeds of 10mbps by 2020.Matt Warman, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary group on broadband, said the Government must introduce specific provisions to improve broadband in schools, as rural children are missing out on “huge chunks of the curriculum”.Mr Warman, who is MP for Boston and Skegness and sits on the science and technology select committee, told The Daily Telegraph: “Children aren’t able to do huge chunks of the curriculum if they don’t have a decent connection. “Some councils have been forward thinking about this, but others have not and it is very clear that some schools are better connected than others and that’s not fair in an education system that is meant to provide equal opportunities for all.“It is hard for me to justify to one parent whose children have almost zero broadband at school while others have something much better.” Poor broadband connections in remote areas hinder children’s learning because they cannot do their homework properly, a report has found.Brian Wilson, director at Rural England said that pupils who grow up in rural communities are at a disadvantage compared to their urban dwelling peers, as they less able to access online learning resources and carry out research based projects.A report by the campaign group, titled State of Rural Services 2016, said that rural communities are suffering due to poor transport links to vital public services.Mr Wilson, who wrote the report, said: “A lack of a fast broadband connection is an issue in a lot of rural places. It is expanding but it is still the case that about a quarter of homes will be unable to get a broadband connection.“Schools are increasingly using online learning materials, children are expected to do a lot of homework online. A slow connection at home makes it harder to do homework, particularly research based tasks, projects which involve trying to download attachments or large document.” Broadband speeds can be bad in the countrysideCredit:Martin Pope He added that the Government’s proposals for a national standard of internet speed “need to also take into account that schools should be given priority”.Ofcom, the telecoms regulator, revealed last month that a quarter of all properties in rural areas – close to a million in total – still do not have decent broadband. Steve Unger, Ofcom’s group director, said it was “unacceptable” that so many people were struggling to get broadband and urged ministers to improve coverage in the countryside.Rachael Maskell MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, said that Rural England’s findings represent “yet more evidence that rural communities have been left behind by this Tory Government”.She added: “It’s clear that the lack of infrastructure in rural areas, including broadband and mobile access, is blocking access to vital services across the board.” A DCMS spokesman said: “Nine out of ten homes and businesses in the UK can now get superfast broadband, and the Better Broadband scheme is now providing immediate assistance to those homes in rural area with the slowest speeds.”But we are determined to go further and we’ve just announced £400 million that will be used to take superfast broadband even further and reach hundreds of thousands more rural homes. And we are legislating for a Universal Service Obligation, which will give every home and business in the UK the right to fast broadband.”The report, published on Tuesday, found that more than three fifths of students cannot reach schools in rural areas in reasonable travel time.They used Department for Transport data, which includes details of those living within ‘reasonable’ distances of schools and hospitals.The DfT does not publish its own definitions of ‘reasonable travel times’ but many local authorities say 75 minutes is a reasonable distance to travel to a secondary school.A Department for Education spokesperson said: “The legal responsibility for transport to schools and further education colleges rests with councils, who are best placed to understand the needs of their population and the local transport infrastructure.“We know that buses play a key role in helping children to get to school, especially in rural areas. We provide around £250 million to support services in England every year, which councils can use for specific bus routes.”
HSV HandballLuka Stepancic ← Previous Story NEW KIEL, STRONG KIEL: “Zebras” win Super Cup! Next Story → ARPAD STERBIK IN VARDAR, ONE MONTH AFTER: I’ve never made any mistakes in my career! German HSV Handball are on the way of recovery after very tough period after the end of the season, when existing of famous team was under question. New head-coach, Christian Gaudin began to work to keep team from Hamburg in the upper part of DKB Bundesliga. These type of ambitions showed the club with signing Romanian left back Simicu, but also with interest in signing one of the most promising Croatian players – Luka Stepancic. A 24 years old lefthander was a target of many teams during last few years, Vive Targi Kielce, for example, but the closest to sign him were Belarus’ best team – Brest Meshkov.His current team RK C.O Zagreb didn’t reach the agreement with team from Brest (transfer fee was 250.000, but Belarussians stopped on 200.000). Now, Stepancic is close to sign contract with the Germans. He has a lot of experience of playing at VELUX EHF Champions League, but also strong SEHA League in the recent four years…
Why do the TV shows with the shortest seasons always leave us in suspense? The end of last night’s Better Call Saul set up some significant changes for next season, and we have to wait ten months to see how they play out. I get that you should always leave your audience wanting more, but come on. When more isn’t a mere summer away, an ending like last night’s borders on torture. But let’s back up a bit before we get to that. This was the episode where Jimmy’s slipping caught up with him, taking almost all he had.Last week, we saw Saul truly come out for the first time. That was when Jimmy knew his actions would hurt someone, and didn’t care. He wanted his money. This week, we saw that the transformation isn’t entirely complete yet. When he sees the prolonged consequences of his actions, he feels remorse. He tries to fix things. Saul may have made an appearance, but Jimmy’s still here. Sadly, no matter what he does, he can’t seem to put things back the way they were. He tries reasoning with the other women in the retirement home to find that they don’t trust Irene anymore. He sends them gifts in her name, and they tell him he’s too good a friend for her.The worst response, of course, comes from Chuck. Jimmy visits Chuck’s home to try and patch things up. He says he has regrets about what he’s done, and that he wants the pair of them to stick together. There aren’t a lot of McGill’s left, and they should stick together. Chuck rejects his offer of peace, claiming that he’s just going to screw things up again. Then he hits Jimmy where it really hurts. “The truth is, you never mattered that much to me.” Damn Chuck, that’s cold. Especially considering the opening scene of a teenage Chuck reading a story to young Jimmy in a tent. And it looks like that might be the last words the brothers ever have, but we’ll get to that in a bit.Chuck McGill (Michael McKean) and Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) Photo by Michele K. Short/Sony PicturesThis wasn’t Chuck’s usual smugness at play. He had everything taken from him in this episode too. In the beginning, Chuck threatens to sue his firm for discrimination, unless they agree to continue working with him or buy him out, which they can’t afford. He smirks through his offer, with all the smug confidence we’ve come to expect from courtroom Chuck. This is where he feels most powerful, and he loves lording that power over other. Things start to fall apart when Howard makes an unexpected move. He goes into great personal debt to buy Chuck out of the firm. Hamlin, Hamlin, and McGill is protected, and Chuck is out. Howard announces Chuck’s departure to the entire company, who watches him leave, offering congratulations and handshakes. He’s out, and there’s no getting back in. That’s what drives him to tell Jimmy he’s never cared for him. Rebuffing Jimmy’s peace offering was the one way he could hold onto a little bit of power.Of course, Chuck’s desire for control ultimately undoes him. Though he’s been forcing himself to live with electricity for a while now, knowing you have a mental illness doesn’t make the mental illness go away. The symptoms come back, and they hit hard. With nothing else to control he becomes obsessed with ridding his home of electricity. He shuts off all the breakers but is frustrated when his meter continues to turn. Something is drawing power, and he can’t tell what. Michael McKean plays this gradual descent so well it’s hard to watch. By the end of the episode, he sits surrounded by rubble, having torn up each wall. With nothing else to do, he burns the house down around him. Come next season; Chuck may be gone.Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) Photo by Michele K. Short/Sony PicturesA brother isn’t the only person Jimmy lost this week. He appears to have lost his clients. Proving Saul hasn’t completely taken over yet, Jimmy sacrifices his clients’ trust in him to get Irene back on her friends’ good side. He enlists his old colleague from Davis and Main to interrupt him while he teaches chair yoga. Leaving his wireless mic on, he admits to taking advantage of his senior clients, insulting them and just torching every ounce of goodwill he had. It works, but Jimmy is sure he’ll have to find a new business model once he gets his license back. On the bright side, he hasn’t lost quite everything. He still has Kim. After her accident, she realizes she needs to allow herself to relax. She rents a bunch of movies from Blockbuster (remember those?), and gives herself a break. She and Jimmy sublet their office, which unfortunately means saying goodbye to Francesca. For now. As they’re cleaning out their office, she stops Jimmy from throwing out his Rolodex (remember those?!) and kisses him. Jimmy may have lost nearly everything this episode, but he still has her. And their relationship is in a better (well, less precarious) place than it’s ever been. So that’s something.Hector “Tio” Salamanca (Mark Margolis) Photo by Michele K. Short/Sony PicturesFinally, there’s the matter of Nacho Varga. After Hector demands to use Nacho’s dad’s upholstery, Nacho decides it’s time to kill him. As he lines up a shot though, he’s interrupted by the rest of Salamanca’s men. Apparently, there’s going to be a meeting between Hector, Gus Fring, and Don Eladio’s man. After being told once again that all drugs will cross the border in Gus’s chicken trucks, Hector has a heart attack. Finally, Nacho’s swapped pills do their job, and Hector collapses. Gus performs CPR and has Hector’s men call an ambulance. In the confusion, Nacho is able to swap the fake pills for real ones, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Gus. If Gus suspected that Nacho was trying to kill Hector before, he definitely knows now. We’ll have to see exactly what he does with that information next season. Maybe Nacho will end up working for Gus? For now, the last shot we see of Hector Salamanca is him hooked up to an oxygen tank. That’s a familiar look for him.While it was disappointing to end this season without anything more from Mike Ehrmantraut, he did end up in a pretty intriguing place last week. It’s just a shame we’ll have to wait nearly a year before we see his first job for Gus Fring. In any case, this episode was everything you’d want a Better Call Saul season finale to be. By its nature, the show is a slow burn, carefully setting up its pieces to knock them all down at once. That’s what last night was. The third season spent most of its time getting Jimmy into a desperate situation, forcing him to slip, and letting him fully fall into Saul. In its finale, everything catches up to him. He loses his clients, his brother and his girlfriend got into a car accident, all because of him. Kim may not blame him for that last one, but Jimmy sure blames himself. They’re in a decent place now, but we all know that won’t last. We’ll have to wait almost a year before we see where Jimmy’s desperate situation forces him to go. And where Saul will show his face next.Let us know how we’re doing
Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls So naturally I picked up the Amiibos of them. They come in a two-pack, like the rare Callie and Marie two-pack before them, and are $24.99 retail if you can find them. And considering how hot these cephalopod people are, that’s a big if.First, there’s Pearl, the diminutive albino gremlin Inkling MC, throwing down some hand signs and wearing a comically large zipper tab for a chain. She looks like she got her jewelry from Kill La Kill and her crown from an underwater Burger King and I love it. And, instead of a sea of whites, she has hot pink ink flowing around her feet, hot pink leggings, and pink highlights in her hair and crown. It’s a great look for such a weird water muppet.But let’s be real, Marina’s the star. The queen. The Octoling headliner and DJ of the pair. And she is the best. First, she’s a big character in the Splatoon continuity who’s a minority in-universe as an Octoling, and a sea-creature-of-color on top of that. Second, Octoling hair just looks cooler than Inkling hair. The exposed octopus suckers are great, and the off-white of the suckers really add some strong contrast to the deep purple roots and teal tips. Third, she’s accessorizing right, with big DJ headphones and painted nails, all of which match the teal of her tips, her tights, and the ink around her feet. She oozes The World Ends With You style, while Pearl kind of looks like a Kingdom Hearts character.But they’re both great, and together they make the face of Splatoon 2. Whether you like Pearl or Marina better, the fact is that both of them work well because of the huge contrast between them. It’s just fantastic design.We cool?Yeah, she ain’t having it.If you have Splatoon 2, these Amiibos become even more amazing. You can get costume items from each. Pearl gives you a crown and Marina gives you her headphones and a white do-rag. It’s some Biggie/Tupac headgear going on, and it gets better when you keep playing and the Amiibos unlock tops with huge medallions to go with them.I wish I could pull off any of this style. Or swim. Still, these are among my favorite new Amiibos. I thought I was done with Amiibos. Then Splatoon 2 happened. Nintendo sometimes does amazing things with aesthetics, and its aesthetics have never been stronger than the look of Splatoon 2. The Octoling DLC is pretty good in its own right, but the designs of Pearl and Marina are amazing. Sorry Squid Sisters, but Pearl and Marina outshine you in every way. Stay on target

(Representative image)Johannes Simon/Getty ImagesA head constable of the Bhim police station in Rajasthan’s Rajsamand district was beaten to death by a mob after he arrived at Jamela ki Ber village to investigate a land dispute case.Abdul Gani, 45, was attacked with sticks and rods by a group of unidentified men on Saturday, July 13. “He (Gani) was returning from the village on his motorcycle when some unidentified persons attacked him with sticks,” Rajsamand Superintendent of Police Bhuvan Bhushan was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.”While talking to the parties involved in encroachments on the land, there was a dispute and Gani was attacked by the unidentified persons. The attackers fled and some passers-by called a 108 ambulance in which the policeman was taken to a community health centre where he succumbed to injuries,” added Labhuram Vishnoi, the station house officer of Bhim police station.Binita Thakur, the Inspector General from the Udaipur range, said that it is not mob lynching and that Gani was attacked by a group of three to four men who began beating him up the moment he reached the main road.Gani’s family was informed and his body was shifted to a mortuary. The post-mortem will be conducted on Sunday. Mob violence has become rampant in Rajasthan over the past few years, especially due to cow smuggling and gau rakshaks. In 2017, Pehlu Khan and his sons were beaten up by cow vigilantes when he was transporting animals in Rajasthan. Pehlu Khan succumbed to his injuries. His two sons were also injured in the attack.

Citation: Scientists say dolphins should be treated as non-human persons (2010, January 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-01-scientists-dolphins-non-human-persons.html (PhysOrg.com)—Scientists studying dolphin behavior have suggested they could be the most intelligent creatures on Earth after humans, saying the size of their brains in relation to body size is larger than that of our closest relatives, the chimpanzees, and their behaviors suggest complex intelligence. One scientist said they should therefore be treated as “non-human persons” and granted rights as individuals. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further The behavioral studies showed dolphins (especially the bottlenose) have distinct personalities and self-awareness, and they can think about the future. The research also confirmed dolphins have complex social structures, with individuals co-operating to solve difficult problems or to round up shoals of fish to eat, and with new behaviors being passed from one dolphin to another. Several examples of learning being passed on to other individuals have been observed. In one case a rescued dolphin in South Australia, taught to tail-walk during recuperation, in turn taught the trick to other wild dolphins in the Port Adelaide river estuary when she was released. According to marine biologist Mike Bossley it was “like watching a dance craze take off”, with the dolphins apparently learning the trick just for fun, since tail-walking has no natural function.Work carried out by professor of psychology at the City University of New York, Diana Reiss, showed dolphins could recognize themselves in a mirror, and could use it to inspect other parts of their bodies, an ability previously only demonstrated in humans and a few animals such as apes, elephants and pigs. In another study Reiss was able to teach captive dolphins a rudimentary language based on symbols.In anatomical studies of the dolphin, zoologist Lori Marino and colleagues from Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia in the US, used MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans to map the brains of dolphins and compare them with the brains of primates. She found the ratio of dolphin brain mass to body size to be second only to the human brain, which means dolphin brains are relatively larger than those of chimpanzees. The neocortex and cerebral cortex of the bottlenose dolphins were particularly large and the cortex had similar convoluted folds to those found in human brains and strongly associated with intelligence. Cortical folds increase the volume of the cortex and its capacity for interconnections to form. Marino said the findings on brain anatomy and intelligence of dolphins mean we should re-examine the treatment of dolphins, especially when their treatment results in suffering.Reiss and Marino say their behavioral and anatomical findings and our new understanding of dolphin intelligence mean it may not be ethical to keep dolphins in aquatic amusement parks for our entertainment, or to kill them for food. Around 300,000 whales, dolphins, and porpoises die each year, with some being killed for food, such as the annual killing of thousands of dolphins and small whales in Taijii, Japan, or even to prove the manhood of those killing them, such as the slaughter of Calderon dolphins at Faroe Island, in Denmark.Reiss and Marino will present their findings at a conference in San Diego, California next month. Also speaking at the conference will be professor of ethics and business at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, Thomas White, who said the new research adds weight to his ideas that dolphins should be regarded as “non-human persons” with the right to be treated as individuals. White is the author of the book “In Defense of Dolphins”. © 2009 PhysOrg.com Group calls for ban on dolphin therapy Credit: CC0 Public Domain
14 injured after car rams into pedestrians in Melbourne, police say no links to terrorism Thursday, December 21, 2017 SYDNEY, Australia — Australian police say the driver of a vehicle that rammed into pedestrians in Melbourne is an Australian citizen of Afghan decent who has a known history of drug use and mental health issues.Police said in news conference late Thursday that there was no evidence or intelligence to indicate that the incident was connected to terrorism, but they believe the act was deliberate. They said counter-terror officials would remain involved in the investigation to be sure there was no connection.Police said the 32-year-old driver was known to state police on “historical assault matters.”Police say a man who deliberately drove a car into a crowded intersection in Melbourne, Australia had a history of mental health issues.19 people were taken to the hospital. pic.twitter.com/Hw0pYTRUHs— AJ+ (@ajplus) December 21, 2017The two men were arrested after the SUV in which they were travelling rammed into pedestrians on a busy central Melbourne street Thursday, leaving 14 people injured in what police believe was a deliberate act.Victoria state police said the driver of the vehicle and a second man were in custody after the incident, which occurred on Flinders Street in the city’s central business district just after 4:45 p.m. when the area was busy with Christmas shoppers.Barrett confirmed 14 people had been injured in the attack. Several were taken to hospitals, and two were in critical condition, including a pre-school aged boy with head injuries. Earlier media reports said up to 19 people had been injured.More news: Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyWitnesses described horrific scenes from the incident, which started when the SUV ran a red light outside the city’s iconic Flinders Street train station and sped up to hit pedestrians crossing the road, striking more than a dozen people before crashing into a traffic barrier near a cable car stop.“I was crossing Flinders Street on the way to the train station. I heard an engine rev behind me and heard a thump,” one man identified only as David said on ABC TV. He said he turned around saw “people literally getting thrown into the air as it hit them.”Witnesses said when the car crashed it was rushed by bystanders who started pulling the two men out before police arrived a few minutes later.Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull sent a tweet calling the incident “shocking” and said his thoughts and prayers were with the victims and those treating them.Police said officers have been deployed across the area and the site would be closed-off as a crime scene for some time.“Police will continue to have a strong presence in the Melbourne CBD tonight,” Barrett said.It’s the second time this year that Melbourne, regularly ranked one of the world’s most livable cities, has been traumatized by a car attack.More news: Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughtsIn January, six people were killed and more than 30 were injured when a car was driven up a footpath in Bourke Street, near Thursday’s incident. Police arrested the driver, who was known to police for a history of illicit drug use, family violence and mental health problems. Police said the case was not terrorism-related.There have been a number of car attacks in other parts of the world in recent years, many of them linked to terrorism.In October a man drove a truck down a New York City bicycle path, killing eight people. The driver is accused of providing material support to the Islamic State group among other charges including murder.In an August attack, 13 people were killed and more than 100 were wounded when a vehicle rammed into pedestrians on a walking street in Barcelona. London has seen three such attacks this year, two linked to Islamic extremists and another seen as a reprisal attack outside a mosque, killing 13 people altogether.A vehicle attack on a shopping street in Stockholm in April killed five people, while an attack on a Christmas market in Berlin last December killed 12.The deadliest such attack in recent years took place in Nice, France, in July 2016 when a man drove a refrigerated truck weighing about 20 tons into a crowd, killing 86 people.

In 2008 Keith Jenkins left his 10-year banking career to see the world. “I’ve not looked back since”, he says, and after visiting everywhere from Brazil to Bora Bora, we’re not surprised. You can read the fruits of his labour of love on his travel blog Velvet Escape. The blog’s main content is divided into six ‘Quintessentially Velvet’ sections, taking in Places, Travel Tips, Tens, Cuisine, Hotels and People. Tips features guests writers from around the world; the handy Tens offer quick guides according to theme; Cuisine – obviously a personal passion of Keith’s – takes you on a lip-whetting culinary tour; Hotels will make you just a little envious; and in People, Keith gets philosophical on the fine art of travel . There is also a Destinations section so you can navigate straight to your country of interest. Keith’s tone is friendly, yet still poised and professional, while the blog’s look, layout and navigation is appropriately neat and non-flashy.Keith’s concept suits the site well. ‘Velvet’, says the 30-something Amsterdammer is ‘soft, plush, rich… some would say sexy. When you run your hand over velvet you know there is a certain depth and richness to it; you know you are alive.’ Travel certainly comes across as Keith’s lifeblood, especially when it flows towards the luxury end of the spectrum, but the approach is never Condé Nast. In fact it’s quite the opposite – Velvet Escape will appeal more to the clued-up ‘coolpacker’ than the Mr and Mrs Smith set.So whether you define luxury as sipping champagne on first-class flights, or simply having the time to go on holiday, you’ll be sure to find writing worth reading, as well as that essential element of escapism. We all want to get away from it all sometimes. Velvet Escape does it in style.See all our Blogs of the Week here.What’s your favourite travel blog?
