IndianAmerican adoptive father of Sherin Mathews denied new trial

first_imgHouston: Wesley Mathews, the Indian-American foster father of three-year-old Sherin Mathews, has been denied a new trial in the tragic death of the Indian toddler in 2017, in a case that attracted international attention.Mathews, 39, pleaded guilty on June 24 to a lesser charge of injury to a child in Sherin’s death and was sentenced to life imprisonment.He was originally charged with capital murder by authorities in the US state of Texas after they discovered Sherin’s highly decomposed body following a massive search that lasted 15 days.

Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe defense team filed a motion for a new trial last month, arguing that “photographs of the remains of the decedent, both where her body was discovered and in the autopsy suite” were so prejudicial as to deny Mathews a fair trial.The lawyers also argued prosecutors failed to prove Mathews was responsible for broken bones Sherin suffered in his care, the report said.Based on the above, Mathews’ defence filed a motion for a new trial. That motion was denied Thursday and now his team is expected to file an appeal, another media report said. In June, Mathews avoided a capital murder trial by pleading guilty to a lesser charge of injury to a child by omission.At his trial, he told the jury Sherin died after she choked on milk in the family’s garage and that he wrapped her body in a trash bag because he wanted “to do something nice” for her.Mathews never called 911 or sought help from his wife a registered nurse because he said fear prevented him. He drove to a nearby culvert, where he left Sherin’s body.The child’s body was found two weeks later, so badly decomposed that prosecutors said a true cause of death couldn’t be determined.Sherin’s adoptive mother, Sini Mathews, was also criminally charged after the child’s body was found, but that case was later dismissed after the Dallas County District Attorney said there was not enough evidence to prosecute.Mathews and his wife Sini, both hailing from Kerala, adopted Sherin from an orphanage in Bihar’s Nalanda district in 2016.Police charged Sherin’s foster mother Sini with child abandonment in November 2017, after Mathews told officials that the couple left the toddler alone the night of her death while they went to dinner with their biological daughter.Sini’s case was dismissed in March this year after prosecutors said they could not prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.Sherin’s death attracted the attention of the Indian government and then External Affairs Minister late Sushma Swaraj took keen interest in the case and also instructed the Indian mission in Houston to make sure that the Indian toddler received justice.India revoked the Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI) immigration status of Wesley and Sini after Sherin’s death.The government further tightened the adoption process after Sherin’s tragic death.last_img read more

Chinese ban on foreign recyclables hitting municipal governments

first_imgOTTAWA – A Chinese ban on most foreign recycling material is leaving some Canadian municipalities with stockpiles of papers and plastics, much of which may eventually end up in the dump.The ban is also driving down the revenues cities make off their recyclables because the competition to find a company able to take the materials is stiff.China used to be the main recipient of the world’s recyclable plastics and papers but has now stopped accepting almost all foreign materials, leaving Canadian cities in the lurch.Although the ban didn’t take full effect until Dec. 31, many Chinese companies stopped accepting foreign recycling materials months ago, leaving some cities with stockpiles of flattened cardboard and crushed plastic without anywhere to send it.Matthew Keliher, manager of solid waste for Halifax, said three-quarters of his city’s recyclables used to go to China. He said the city has found new markets for hard plastics and papers but film plastics — grocery bags and food storage bags and wraps — have proved harder to sell. Three hundred tonnes of film plastic amassed in a Halifax warehouse since August is now being sent to the dump.Calgary, which used to send all of its paper recyclables and half of its plastics to China, has amassed 5,000 tonnes of material over the last few months that it can’t find anyone else to take. It hasn’t yet decided what to do with it.While Canada has some domestic recycling companies, Christina Seidel, executive director of the Recycling Council of Alberta, said those are almost exclusively for the high-grade plastics like milk jugs and juice bottles.“That’s a really high-quality material,” she said. “Everyone wants those. There aren’t huge fans of the low grade plastics.”Sixty per cent of recyclables in Quebec used to go to China. No more.Tired of tonnes of recyclables contaminated with unusable garbage arriving in its ports and intent on using up its own domestically-produced recyclables, China slammed the door shut to most foreign materials.Indonesia, Thailand and India are among the countries still accepting foreign recyclables but competition to get them to accept product is stiff.It’s so tight that Keliher said Halifax is afraid to say where it’s now sending its recyclables for fear another city will hear of it and jump in to push the competition for that outlet even higher.“Halifax won’t be disclosing the locations of any of our outlets,” he said.“The recycling market was ruthless before the Chinese ban came in and, now that half that market has dried up and the supply is just overwhelming, it’s even more ruthless to get our material out.”Halifax used to make $2.1 million a year on the sale of recyclables, with $1.6 million of that coming from China.Derek Angove, director of processing and resource management for Toronto’s Solid Waste Management Services, said his city did not directly export to China. But it has now entered into longer-term contracts with Canadian outlets to protect Toronto from being crowded out when cities left in the lurch by the Chinese ban come calling with their products.He said Toronto has already seen the price it gets for paper and plastic-coated materials drop and, unless China can be convinced to re-open its doors to recyclables, he believes the prices are going to keep going down.Seidel said Canada needs to move nationwide to the extended producer responsibility system in place across British Columbia, which puts the onus on the producers of the materials to pay for and ensure the recycling of its products.In B.C., that has led to a larger domestic market for recyclables and less pressure on municipalities to pay for the programs.— follow @mrabson on Twitter.last_img read more

Europe incapable of bypassing US sanctions asserts Iran FM

first_imgTehran: Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said on Wednesday European powers were incapable of bypassing sanctions imposed on Tehran by the US after it withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. Iran and six world powers agreed on a deal in 2015 that severely restricted Tehran’s nuclear activities in return for sanctions relief and economic incentives. However President Donald Trump withdrew Washington from the deal — technically called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — last May, reimposing punishing sanctions on the Islamic republic. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe other parties to the nuclear deal — Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia along with the European Union — however insist they remain committed to making the deal work. “The Europeans at first viewed the JCPOA (nuclear deal) as an achievement, but maybe they were not prepared to, and certainly they were not capable of standing up against U.S sanctions,” Zarif said in an interview with Khamenei.ir, the official website of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”We will continue pressing the Europeans to implement their commitments. Europe must know that they cannot shy away from their responsibilities with a few statements and some unaccomplished plans,” he added. Zarif, who was his country’s chief negotiator in the negotiations leading to the deal, said that Iran would continue to pressure the Europeans to act on their obligations within the deal but added that “we never had any hopes” in them. Instead of the western powers the Islamic republic has turned to its traditional partners such as Russia and China, Zarif said, adding “the future of our foreign policy lies in that way.”last_img read more

Foundation Suits Up in Price Once Again

SEUALG Press ReleaseLast fall, the non-profit Utah Woolen Mills Foundation came to Carbon County to work with people on its Suited For Good program and out of it came 12 suits of clothes for a dozen people who received them later in the year.In July, they came to the area again, this time working with 10 individuals to do the same for them.“We enjoyed coming here and working with the people who helped set the program up and those who benefited from it,” said Bart Stringham as he was setting up clothes racks and getting everything together for the session. “This place feels a lot like home to us.”Home for Stringham and the others involved in the program may be the Wasatch Front, but they are taking pleasure in helping people in rural areas, many of whom have never owned a real suit of clothes.For the next three hours, Stringham, his wife Sue and Mike Ford, one of those who contributes to and makes the program possible, measured, fitted and talked with people in the atrium at the Business Technical Assistance Center on South Carbon Avenue. The local sponsor for bringing the program to the area was the Southeastern Utah Association of Local Government’s (SEUALG) Circles Initiative, a program organized to help break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Other local people involved included Karl Kraync, Carbon County Sheriff Jeff Wood and former resident Dr. Max Morgan.“Since we started this program with our foundation a little less than three years ago, we have given out just about 600 suits to date,” said Stringham. “More than half the people that we have given suits to have gotten jobs or better jobs. We, as a family, have been very blessed, so by doing this for others, we get to spread that around.”According to Sue Stringham, the idea emanated from their son, who is now part of the for-profit company. He told his parents that they had been lucky over the years to work in such a great business and he thought that they should share in some way. Thus, Suited For Good came into existence.Utah Woolen Mills itself started in 1905 and has been owned and run by the Stringham family ever since. It is now in its fifth generation as a company.“When they came here and did this a few months ago, it was a very moving experience,” said Julie Rosier, Community Services Program Manager for SEUALG and the person who is over the Circles Initiative. “A lot of the individuals who got the suits last year are trying to rebuild their lives, many with little faith in themselves and they were struggling. This opportunity brought so much confidence to them. It’s the idea that someone believes in them and isn’t judging them makes it an unbelievable experience.”Recipients of the service are nominated for the fitting by either an employer or someone who knows of their struggles. One of the individuals who was fitted on this trip said that the suit will really help her with the job she already has.“We go to a lot of conferences and meetings like that where I can use a nice suit,” she said. “So, it was really special to me that I was nominated and I am excited to see them when they are finished.”Based on time estimates, those that were fitted by the foundation in July should be receiving their clothes before Sept. 1.A video about the visit to Carbon County can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgBk14FkqcM&t=5s Bart and Sue Stringham and Mike Ford came in July to measure people for suits through the program. Bart Stringham takes a moment to discuss clothing and what it can mean to a person when they are applying for a job or attending a function with Christina Lake. Bart Stringham selects a suit to try on one of the people who were nominated. Bart Stringham tries out a size on Kade Lyons. read more

Deschamps More to come from Mbappe

first_imgFrance boss Didier Deschamps is certain that this is just the beginning for Kylian Mbappe and has promised that there is even more to come from the teenage sensationThe Paris Saint-Germain forward pulled off a Man of the Match performance in France’s thrilling 4-3 win over Argentina in their last-16 match last weekend with his searing pace often proving to be too much for the opposing defence to handle and his brace ultimately decided the outcome of the encounter.As well as being the youngest Frenchman to score at a World Cup game, he also first teenager to score twice in the tournament since the legendary Pele for Brazil in the 1958 World Cup final against Sweden.“Kylian gained recognition after the last match but everything he’s done has been great,” said Deschamps, according to the Daily Mail.“He is only 19 and he will grow a lot. He will learn how to manage these situations.“When there are hard times, the trend is to question yourself and to dig deep but when things go well you shouldn’t relax and think things come easy or you need to put in less effort.“Kylian is intelligent, he listens and knows this. But this happens. He’s gone from Monaco to PSG where the demands are not the same, and at the World Cup they are even higher.Revealed: Florentino Perez’s plan to sign Kylian Mbappe Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 12, 2019 According to a report from ‘El Chiringuito’, Florentino Perez revealed his plans to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG next season.We all knew this was…“He is still learning. All players at that age, regardless of ability, they are learning.”Despite the rumoured interest from Real Madrid this summer, Deschamps has backed Mbappe to remain fully focused on the remainder of France’s World Cup campaign.“What he did against Argentina was very good,” he said.“This put a spotlight on him, obviously, to play like that in such an important match made a name for him. But he has had time to digest this and recover.“We all savoured the victory but since Tuesday we started to focus on Uruguay. He is young, but I don’t think that’s a drawback. Uruguay saw him, and they know what he’s capable of. And he will have to do the same thing in this match.”France will take on Uruguay today in their World Cup quarter-final game at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium at 16:00 (GMT +2).last_img read more

ITCs YiPPee close to emerging as Rs 1000 crore brand following Maggi

first_imgCashing in on the opportunity that resulted out of a controversy over its rival Nestle’s Maggi, ITC’s instant noodles brand YiPPee! is close to emerging as a Rs 1,000-crore brand.It is well known that the country’s food regulator had imposed a ban on Maggi after tests of its samples showed higher levels of lead and presence of monosodium glutamate (MSG) in them. The ban was lifted by the Bombay High Court in October.”Sunfeast YiPPee! as a brand is now in its fifth year post the national rollout. We are proud to say Yippee Noodles is poised to enter the Rs 1,000-crore club in the ITC Foods stable,” ITC Ltd Divisional Chief Executive, Foods Division, V L Rajesh told PTI.The ban on Maggi had provided other noodle-makers, including ITC, the opportunity to boost their sales by highlighting quality and safety standards.”The controversy and confusion that prevailed adversely affected the whole industry. However, with our proactive inputs and innovative campaigns, we were the fastest to recover and then exceed our old sales levels,” Rajesh added.After the Maggi ban, ITC had come out with a timely advertising campaign centred on quality and safety, which resulted in higher YiPPee! sales. In September, YiPPee! had accounted for over 50% of instant noodles market in India, according to analysts. Before the ban on Maggi noodles, YiPPee! noodles occupied just 10-12% of the market share.Maggi had a market share of over 80% in instant noodles in the quarter ending March 2015, according to a Nomura report.”We were gaining market share month-on-month even before the controversy happened, and are continuing to grow even now,” said Rajesh.last_img read more

Air India hits back after being ranked thirdworst performing airline

Initially, it seems that the report is fabricated so AI management will investigate the report till the end,” AI’s spokesperson was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times. Also read: Air India deemed ‘third-worst’ airline in the world, Israel’s EI AI the worstThe report comes at a time when Air India is already struggling to turn a profit despite being on a bailout package of Rs 10,000 crore.
