“According to what we can understand so far, this was due to weather, the influence of the typhoon,” a TransAsia representative, Phoebe Lu, told The Associated Press. She said the carrier was waiting for Taiwanese authorities to complete an investigation to get confirmation.

Bulgaria’s prime minister resigns with bank crisis unresolved – Yahoo News

The church tweeted this parody graphic of him with the words Repent! Or Perish. For their part, the Westboro protesters appear to feel theyre the persecuted ones, and they posted a video of a car driving near their group of protesters before the show (there were no injuries) accompanied by this quip:Ya know when @PanicAtTheDisco s giant line of fans looked the happiest? When this happened. Panics decision to donate money to the Human Rights Campaign was spontaneous; the equal rights advocacy group says they had no idea it was going to happen. We heard about it probably when everybody else did, said Charles Joughin, national press secretary for HRC. When Westboro announced plans to protest the Panic concert, the band responded quickly by showing their support for the LGBT community, said Joughin.

But Oresharski’s tenure was overshadowed by months of street protests against corruption, deadly floods that hit the Black Sea city of Varna in June and a standoff between Brussels and Moscow over a Russian-led gas pipeline project. The Socialists ruled with the ethnic Turkish MRF party in a minority coalition, which relied on the outside support of the nationalist Attack party to cling to power and survive repeated no confidence votes while in office. Hundreds gathered in the Bulgarian capital as news of the resignation broke, chanting “victory”, as two lines of police looked on in front of the parliament building. Wednesday also marked the first anniversary of an eight-hour siege of parliament by protesters demanding the government’s resignation. But opposition GERB leader Boiko Borisov wrote on his Facebook wall: “Such a belated resignation, and knowing what ruin they leave behind, I could not even enjoy it.” Earlier, protesters threw tomatoes at a government building, according to local media reports. The government stands down with no consensus in sight about how to rescue Corporate Commercial Bank (Corpbank) and protect its depositors after a run on the bank in June. The central bank governor on Tuesday wrote to parliament offering to step down, saying he would not let the bank be used as a political “toy” after repeated attacks on the institution. MORE DEBTDepositors unnerved by reports of shady deals by Corpbank’s main owner withdrew more than a fifth of deposits in a week-long bank run.

Capitalcityweekly.com – Southeast Alaska’s Online Newspaper

We were making our way in a forest service trail that ended prematurely. I decided to continue because I knew if we got to the wash, we could take it all the way to the base of the mountains that carved out a beautiful horseshoe. We didn’t hit the wash. I knew if we headed directly east we’d hit the trail, but the alders were too thick and the sky too cloudy for markers. Rather than get more lost, I made the call to follow the stream which met up with a creek which eventually became the river that drained the bowl and intersected with the highway. It added five hours to the trip, then we had to hike the road back to the truck, but it was the safe, sure way out. I’ve turned around near the summit before, with a crew of Arizonans who wanted to pick through the alpine but ultimately understood that fog and cliffs don’t mix well, even if they are with a local. You have to make these calls sometimes, because what you know for sure is sometimes just inaccurate enough to get you into trouble.

Just how safe is it to fly these days?

Flying on one of the world’s major airlines, on any single flight, you have a 1 in 4.7 million chance of being killed, according to PlaneCrashInfo.com, which tracked accident data from 1993 to 2012. Even if you’re flying on one of those with the worst safety records, your odds are still 1 in 2 million. Over a lifetime, the chance of dying in an “air and space transport incident,” as the National Safety Council describes it, are 1 in 8,357. To put that in perspective, by their data from 2010, you’re more likely to die from other less-expected causes including heat exposure (1:8,321), choking (1:3,649), in an accident as a pedestrian (1:723), a fall (1:152) or unintentional poisoning (1:119). Of course, causes such as heart disease, cancer and car accidents are also substantially more likely to occur. “The most dangerous part of your airline flight is the trip to the airport,” said aviation and national security expert Carl Rochelle.

Surgery may affect the nervous system | The Detroit News

Dear G.A.: Yes, it is true that aspirin is among the very first treatments given by paramedics for someone with a suspected heart attack. The fastest way of it being effective is to use a 325-mg regular, uncoated aspirin, and to chew and swallow it. Every minute counts during a heart attack, and chewing the tablet speeds up effectiveness by about six minutes. I think you may be confusing aspirin with nitroglycerine, which is absorbed under the tongue and should be administered only by the paramedic or a doctor if you havent had it before. Aspirin doesnt interfere with the other medications used. If you think you are having a heart attack, call 911 first, then take the aspirin. You still should take it even if you regularly take a baby aspirin. Tell the paramedics that you took it and when.

[Hamas] makes weapons there, has bunkers there and a lot of rockets are physically being launched from there. Nisman, whose younger brother is currently fighting in Gaza, said tanks likely shelled the streets of Shujaya to clear a path for soldiers on foot striking everything and everyone in their way. Its pitch black, he said. When you’re an 18-year-old kid from Nahariya, and you know there are snipers and things like that, when someone runs out into street, you get very nervous and you might shoot. I literally cant imagine a more difficult fighting area than Gaza on the planet. A Palestinian woman walks past the rubble of a residential building in Gaza City that was destroyed in an Israeli air strike onJuly 22. Photo byMohammed Salem/Reuters In some cases, a constant battering of artillery shells weakened family homes and caused them to collapse on residents inside. Al Sweity, the doctor at Al Awad Hospital in northern Gaza, said the influx of patients had skyrocketed from the combination of air and land warfare. The injuries now are mostly people who were crushed either hit directly by missiles, or their houses dropped on their heads, he said. Rarely you find one still alive under the house. The doctors voice was full of pain and panic as he described the hundreds of pregnant Palestinian women who had been delivering premature or aborted babies at Al Awad Hospital as a result of their injuries.

Fear of making a high-profile mistake like that often hounded both Elizondo and Hall in the hours leading up to the start of World Cup matches they worked. Both men knew the many challenges of their job and the consequences of an ill-timed blunder. “Before any match, you always have these feelings of nervousness and anxiety,” Elizondo said. “Fear of making a mistake, fear of being misunderstood, and fear of failure. In my personal experience, I always faced a fear of making a mistake and had to work hard to cope with it.” Carolina Casares,Editor-in-Chief of Yahoo! Hispanic Americas, contributed to this report.

Israel Is Losing Control Of The Gaza Media War

Soon after the news broke of the intense battle in Shijaiyah, the Israeli Defense Forces tweeted this: Shuja’iya is a civilian area where Hamas places its rockets, tunnels and command centers. IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) July 20, 2014 “Nothing in those three tweets constitutes either a defense of, or explanation for, the killing of tens of non-combatants,” Mason wrote. “But in the space between them, anybody following the Gaza conflict from both sides would have seen tens of independently shot images and accounts of civilian death and the destruction of housing and civilian infrastructure. The incident shows who is winning the social media war over Gaza. It is evidence of a massive change in the balance of power between social media and the old, hierarchical media channels we used to rely on to understand wars.” The change and its implications for the public’s understanding of the conflict has also been noticed by other observers of the region. Something that [journalists] might have said to friends at a bar now goes out on Twitter,” David Pollock, an Arab-Israeli relations expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, told Mashable. There are more journalists on the ground this time around, compared to 2009, when Israel launched a major military campaign into Gaza and the IDF prevented foreign media from entering the territory.

Dana White Loves Stefan Struve, but He’s Concerned About Giving Him Another Fight – Yahoo Sports

It wasnt his physical; it was his mental that night I think. The bad news is, Struve could be a liability to a future fight card. A fight dropping off the main card moments before a broadcast is a nightmare scenario for a promotion. While White is fond of the one-time heavyweight contender, hes concerned about giving him another fight. I love Stefan Struve . I love the kid, said White. He had this issue, and Im sure hes nervous about his health. So well see. He cant do that again.

Armchair Analyst: The First Days Of Mls 3.0 And Other Week 19 Thoughts | Mlssoccer.com

But the job’s not done, as FCD still have some questions to answer including, “How do we get Diaz back into the lineup but stick with the 4-4-2 that’s worked so well since the start of June?” To me, that’s the big one, because it means the “learn yourself” part has to happen again. Diaz is the best player on the team and arguably the best playmaker in the league (he was well in the MVP race before his injury), but he doesn’t really have a spot in the scheme that Oscar Pareja has been using to get results. Whatever Pareja decides, personnel- and tactics-wise, will provide the shape of the season to come in Big D. 3. The Obvious Solution Midseason wins over a team missing half its starting lineup don’t come much bigger than Portland’s 2-1 defeat of Colorado on Friday night . I added those qualifiers above not to diminish what the Timbers did, but to illustrate just how desperate times were getting in Rose City.

$100,000 bond for Mich. man accused of fondling boy at Toledo-area hospital – Toledo Blade

She leaves the kitchen shortly, but returns to finish her dish. Joe liked the dish Gordon and Graham put together, but they aren’t eligible to win the mystery box, so who knows what the point of that was. It’s Christian who wins the challenge, with his expertly cooked blackened salmon. Courtney and Elizabeth were also noted for their dishes. His advantages are pretty standard. Christian is excused from the pressure test and he gets to choose what everyone else gets to cook with. Each of the judges had a basket of their favorite ingredients.

Thats up to the man upstairs. And then it may fall out again. Each case, according to WebMD, is unique. As Utsman can attest, oftentimes hair isnt the only loss for one with alopecia. For instance, a persons confidence can drop as resoundingly as an anvil from the sky. Oh, I didnt have any confidence, Utsman said. My life was over. She simply and stayed indoors and turned inward. I thought my boyfriend would leave me, Utsman said.

Alopecia universalis. Diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder, Utsmans hair went quickly. Alopecia universalis no hair, nowhere, Utsman said. I used to shave my legs every day. Now, I dont have to. I would spend $150 every time I had my hair colored. Worse than the loss of an old friend, like most anyone else Utsman did not respond well as her hair quickly went the way of the dinosaur. Could you imagine, said Tabatha Ellis, store manager at Chic Wigs in Bristol, Va., brushing your hair and seeing it come out? Utsman nodded without a knowing grin.
