The motive is not yet known but some of his articles on local politics had earned him enemies. He is the fourth journalist to be murdered in Thailand since the start of the year.“We are seeing an unprecedented wave of murders of journalists in Thailand and we call on the police and judicial authorities to give themselves the means to deal with it,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If no real progress is made in solving these four cases, more journalists are likely to be killed at a time when Thailand is still embroiled in a political crisis.”Wallop, 52, was helping his wife in a restaurant in his village when two men on a motorcycle fired five shots at him, hitting him twice in the head and killing him instantly.Wallop’s murder could be linked to his articles on local politics, which had caused controversy. He was an active member of his district council and he had criticised some of his opponents in articles about the local elections due to take place next month.Somsak Phusrisak, the governor of the central province of Suphanburi, where Matichon correspondent Jaruek Rangcharoen was gunned down on 27 September, has meanwhile reported that the police are on the verge of arresting the leading suspect in that murder thanks to a facial composite drawn with the help of witnesses.

KRQE(THOREAU, N.M.) — Four people have been killed and others are seriously injured after a Greyhound bus crashed into a tractor trailer on a highway in New Mexico Thursday afternoon, police said.The number of dead is expected to rise, officials said.At least 42 people were transported to nearby hospitals, with another six being treated at the scene, authorities said. “There are multiple serious injuries and passengers transported. Officers and EMS are actively working and assessing the scene, New Mexico State Police said.More than 33 patients have been transported to local area hospitals with injuries, some are said to be in critical condition, officials said.The NTSB is launching a go-team to investigate the crash, the agency told ABC News.Christopher Jones said he got to the accident site just after the crash.“I saw the tractor trailer flipped upside down the driver of the tractor trailer was on the shoulder just sitting there. So I grabbed my medical kit and grabbed a bunch of my gloves and got out there and just started helping people and it was a pretty rough site,” Jones told ABC News.The driver of the tractor trailer told jones that his front tire popped off the vehicle, causing it to veer into oncoming traffic where it struck the bus.“I was talking to the driver of the tractor trailer and when I flagged what happened and talked to the driver, he said his front drive tire popped on him and so it took him into the medium onto oncoming traffic right into the Greyhound upon impact, which I’m not too sure of the details. But I am guessing it was a head on collision,” Jones said.Jones, who said he used to be a volunteer firefighter and EMT, described the scene as “one of the hardest” he’s ever had to see.There were 49 passengers aboard Greyhound bus #1333, according to a statement from Greyhound. The bus was headed from Albuquerque to Phoenix.“The total number of injuries has not been determined at this time. The cause of the incident has not yet been determined. We are fully cooperating with local authorities and will also complete an investigation of our own. Please contact the New Mexico State Police Department for any further details,” Greyhound said.This is a breaking story, please check back for updatesCopyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Eleven species of Achnanthes from Signy Island, South Orkney Islands are described including one new species. Benthic algal material from a range of shallow lakes of varying trophic status was examined by light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Detail of morphology is provided with an overview of the taxonomic literature for each species. In all cases source descriptions are cited, and where possible holotype and lectotype material was examined. The variation between populations inhabiting different lakes is considered. An examination of the geographical distribution of Achnanthes in southern latitudes from the literature confirms numerous records of widespread occurrence in freshwater environments in sub-antarctic regions but not from higher latitudes.

Estate agents in Bromley, Kent say they are growing increasingly annoyed and angry that an employee of a Countrywide competitor, who they says worked through the lockdown despite being furloughed, has yet to be investigated.This case first surfaced two weeks ago, and at the time Countrywide said in a statement that it would take “whatever action necessary” following the allegations. But so far, nothing has happened.The Countrywide staff member involved has subsequently threatened an agent in the area if they continue to press on with their criticisms.The agency which made the initial complaints says it’s baffling that Countrywide hasn’t been in touch with him to discuss the problem, despite the fact that Claire Raines, its Head of Employee Relations, has been sent documentation to back up its claims.The Negotiator has been shown photographs dated 30th April of the male employee leading two clients to a property viewing in the area without any PPE equipment, or protective measures in place.Comments on social media have identified the Countrywide brand involved as a multi-branch agency in and around Bromley in Kent.Other agents have told The Negotiator that he ‘blatantly’ broke the furlough rules and for example used his mobile number on messages for clients to contact him through, clearly proving that he was working. as well as being seen on viewings.The rules state that an employee who is furloughed may take paid work with other companies, with their employer’s agreement, but that overall the scheme is “to provide employers with an option to keep employees on the payroll without them working” and avoid redundancies.Countrywide has been approached for comment but has so far not responded.Bromley Kent Countrywide June 29, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

COA: Police Search Did Not Violate State ConstitutionOlivia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comIndiana police did not violate the state constitution when they searched a woman’s car without a warrant after discovering that the car matched the description from an earlier drug-related tip and police dogs alerted to the presence of drugs in the vehicle, the Indiana Court of Appeals has ruled.Gail Whitenack searched her stepdaughter Richelle Whitenack’s vehicle and found items that suggested she was using drugs, so the stepmother called the police and told them what she had found. The police subsequently issued a tip to its deputies that included a description of Richelle Whitenack’s vehicle and the drug-related items.Later the same day, a deputy pulled Richelle Whitenack over for speeding and crossing the center line twice and realized that the vehicle he had pulled over matched the description of the vehicle from Gail Whitenack’s drug tip. When a K-9 officer arrived on the scene, a police dog indicated the presence of drugs, and a further search revealed a split-box of syringes, wrapping from a coffee package and a spoon with burnt residue later identified as heroin.The younger Whitenack was found guilty of unlawful possession of a syringe, possession of paraphernalia, driving left of the center lane and exceeding the posted speed limit. She was sentenced to an aggregate of one year executed with one year suspended and six months on probation and a $20 fine.On appeal in Richelle Marie Whitenack v. State of Indiana, 35A04-1608-CR-1811, Whitenack argued that the search of her vehicle was unlawful under Article 1, Section 11 of the Indiana Constitution because the state had received a report of the description, location and contents of her vehicle more than eight hours before the actual search. Further, she argued that the deputies should have obtained a search warrant after her stepmother called in the tip earlier in the day.But Indiana Court of Appeals Judge Cale Bradford wrote Friday that the deputies had “ample probable cause to support their actions” because Whitenack’s vehicle was pulled over for legitimate traffic violations and K-9 officers alerted to the presence of drugs.“The fact that there may or may not have been enough information to obtain a search warrant to search that same vehicle earlier that day has not impact on the legality of the subsequent search and seizure; officers do not have to obtain a warrant at the first practicable moment,” Bradford said.Further, Bradford wrote that the appellate court has previously held that there is “nothing unreasonable in permitting an officer, who may have knowledge or suspicion of unrelated criminal activity by the motorist, to nevertheless respond to an observed traffic violation.” Thus, the evidence was admissible and Whitenack’s convictions were affirmed.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail

Two Harvard professors have won the Wolf Prize, considered the most prestigious award in science after the Nobel Prize and the Lasker Award. The Wolf Prize is presented annually by the Wolf Foundation, founded by Ricardo Wolf, a German-born inventor and Cuba’s former ambassador to Israel.C. Ronald Kahn, chief academic officer and senior investigator at Joslin Diabetes Center and the Mary K. Iacocca Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, will share the 2016 Wolf Prize in Medicine with Professor Lewis Cantley of Weill Cornell Medical College. Kahn was honored for his “pioneering studies defining insulin signaling and its alterations in disease. This work has been essential to understanding the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes.” Kahn also recently was honored with the Harold Hamm International Prize.“My mentors and colleagues have provided guidance throughout my career to help me navigate life as a scientist,” sais Schreiber. Courtesy of the Broad Institute“I am both delighted and surprised to receive the Wolf Prize,” said Kahn. “I am incredibly grateful for all of the support I have had throughout my career, both from the people in my lab and the many wonderful people with whom I have worked both within and outside of Joslin. While this is an international award and I have had some great fellows and colleagues from all over the world, a number of them have been from Israel, so winning the prestigious award in Israel is especially meaningful.”Stuart L. Schreiber, the Morris Loeb Professor in Harvard’s Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, will share the 2016 Wolf Prize in Chemistry with Professor Kyriacos C. Nicolaou of Rice University in Houston. They will split the $100,000 award. Schreiber is a founding core member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and is now director of the institute’s Center for the Science of Therapeutics. He is also a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator.Schreiber was recognized for “pioneering chemical insights into the logic of signal transduction and gene regulation that led to important, new therapeutics, and for advancing chemical biology and medicine through the discovery of small-molecule probes.”“My mentors and colleagues have provided guidance throughout my career to help me navigate life as a scientist,” said Schreiber. “And the trainees who joined my lab have been fearless, dedicated, and determined to make a difference. They make it a joy to come to lab every day. I am extremely grateful for this group, and deeply honored to share this recognition with my friend K.C. Nicolaou.”Read more on Kahn’s work here; and Schreiber’s research here.
