first_imgAngel MooreAPTN NewsEmma Ward-Levi just wanted a book to read. The 10-year old Mi’kmaw girl was not expecting to find a book with the line, “I am an Indian and I will scalp you.”She knew those words were wrong, but she didn’t know what to do, so she took the book home to show her mother.Sharona Lynn Levi could not believe what her daughter had discovered at school.“I asked Emma if she understood what scalping meant. I know what it means, and I know it is used as a derogatory term.” she said.Lynn Levi contacted the school and soon people reached out from the Anglophone North School District, the New Brunswick Department of Education, and the Minister of Education.“They apologized and immediately want to find answers like you and me,” she said. “They want to know how the book slipped through and made it into the classroom.” Dominique Cardy, the Minister of Education said in a statement that the district is removing any copies and checking for any other books for inappropriate content.“Immediately upon learning of this situation the district decided to remove any copies of this book from its libraries. We asked all school districts to review any other books by this author to check for other inappropriate content.“I have spoken with Aboriginal Affairs Minister Jake Stewart who stressed the importance of ensuring such racist materials are not available in our schools. I called Chief Aaron Sock of Elsipogtog First Nation and the mother of the child who brought the book home to apologize and to explain the steps the department and the school district are taking.”“The material in this book is racist. We regret it being present in our public-school libraries,” said the statement.(Emma Ward Levi informed her mother of the book she found in the library that reference scalping)Lynn Levi wanted to know how long the book has been on the classroom shelf, and how many children have read it.The School District posted on their website a statement a zero tolerance for racism.“Racist literature is unacceptable, and the book has been removed,” said the statement.Lynn Levi said her daughter knows what is right and wrong.“I am very proud of Emma, she is not afraid to speak up. And she is ready to go back to class and talk about it,” she said.“I am happy this happened because it tells us we are not where we think we are, so we need to figure this out, there needs to be accountability so we can change it.”amoore@aptn.ca@angelharksenlast_img read more

Traditionally, a Cincinnati Reds offseason includes the signing of an overpriced free agent, i.e. Eric Milton or Willy Taveras, and misplaced hope for the upcoming season.Furthermore, the men of the Queen City usually attempt to fill major holes in their roster by acquiring “has-beens” and hoping that these players miraculously have career years.This offseason has been a bit different, and the upcoming season may merit a hint of optimism.The last major acquisition the Reds have made in recent memory was the Ken Griffey Jr. trade after the 1999 season. When rumors began to float around that the Reds were in the Aroldis Chapman sweepstakes, no one gave them a chance to sign the 21-year-old, left-handed Cuban and free agent pitcher armed with a 100 mph fastball.Pundits predicted Chapman would sign with one of the big-market teams such as the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets or Phillies. However, the Reds ended up on top by giving Chapman a six-year, $30.25 million contract on Jan. 12.Clearly, the Reds are taking a huge gamble. Chapman is a classic example of a pitcher with a big, live arm, but one who is also dogged by control issues. In 327 career innings for Holguin, his Cuban team, Chapman struck out 365 batters but walked 203.Coming into the offseason, the Reds had a gaping hole at shortstop. As the winter months wore on, popular opinion was that the Reds were going to spring training with Paul Janish, a slick-fielding but offensively-challenged shortstop, as the starter.Then, way out of left field, the Reds signed veteran shortstop Orlando Cabrera to a $3.02 million, one-year contract. The 35-year-old Cabrera has lost a step or two defensively, but is a significant upgrade offensively over Janish.Also, by trading outfielder Willy Taveras, who was due $4 million next year, to Oakland along with infielder Adam Rosales, the Reds opened up enough money to sign Cabrera.The last objective on the Reds’ offseason list would be bringing back outfielder Jonny Gomes. As a platoon player last year, Gomes hit 20 home runs in 281 at-bats and brought much-needed right-handed power to the lineup. Re-signing Gomes would also add experience to a young outfield that includes Chris Dickerson, Drew Stubbs and Jay Bruce.Without a doubt, the 2010 season is a make or break year for manager Dusty Baker. The Cincinnati Reds manager enters the last year of his contract having gone 74-88 and 78-84 in his first two seasons. Considering Baker was hired by General Manager Walt Jocketty’s predecessor Wayne Krivsky, it’s hard to see Baker returning if Cincinnati has another disappointing season.In Baker’s first two seasons, he has had a significantly different roster to manage each year. In 2008, the Reds still had sluggers Ken Griffey Jr. and Adam Dunn, whose personalities dominated the clubhouse. In 2009, the Reds were an extremely young team led by Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips.However, the offensive problems that have plagued the Reds for much of the past decade still ring true today. Their mantra a few years ago was to rely on the home run ball to win games. Last year, with a precocious but young ball club, the team relied on small ball. Yet, they ranked No. 11 in the National League in runs scored and No. 15 in batting average.Since the Reds did not make a big trade to acquire a power bat, Baker will fill his lineup card everyday hoping to get increased production from his young players. First baseman Joey Votto and second baseman Brandon Phillips are entrenched in the three and four spots, while third baseman Scott Rolen will likely bat fifth.Baker would be wise to utilize center fielder Stubbs’ speed and Cabrera’s contact skills at the top of the lineup. The Reds have not had a legitimate table-setter since Barry Larkin, and Stubbs’ blazing speed and bunt skills have the potential to make some noise in the leadoff spot.The biggest question mark in the Reds’ line-up surrounds Bruce. After bursting onto the big league scene in 2008, the right fielder suffered a sophomore slump in 2009, batting .223 with 22 home runs and 58 RBIs. However, there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel for Bruce. He batted .326 over his last 18 games, in part due to a stance adjustment following a stint on the disabled list.The Reds’ clear strength is their pitching staff, specifically the bullpen. Closer Francisco Cordero anchors a bullpen that ranked near the top of the NL. Cordero is joined by flame-throwing right-hander Nick Masset and screw-ball lefty Daniel Ray Herrera.The first four spots in the Reds starting rotation appear to be set in stone with Bronson Arroyo, Johnny Cueto, Aaron Harang and Homer Bailey, while the fifth spot is up for grabs between a cast of characters including Matt Maloney and Micah Owings.The Reds appear to be heading in the right direction. For the most part, their young stars have taken their major league lumps. They have proven veterans looking to rebound from injury-plagued seasons. Jocketty is an aggressive GM with a track record of success.However, the fact remains the Reds have not been to the playoffs since 1995. Come August, if the Reds can stay healthy and get production from all 25 guys on the roster, they just may be able to keep Cincinnati fans focused on a pennant race instead of Bengals training camp. read more

Brevini-brand double planetary gearboxes have been supplied for this equipment since 2015, but the OEM recently decided to expand the relationship by selecting Dana to supply the GWB® 587 Series industrial driveshafts that connect the gearboxes to the electric motor.last_img read more

first_imgDUP politician admits he didn’t know heterosexual people could contract HIV Trevor Clarke made the admission in a Stormont debate calling for a new HIV awareness campaign. By Sean Murray Share326 Tweet Email1 Read: Anti-viral drugs lower risk of catching HIV for couples having unprotected sexRead: There has been a sharp rise in the number of HIV and syphilis diagnoses amongst gay men Short URL https://jrnl.ie/3110422 DUP MLA Trevor Clarke 18,841 Views 59 Comments DUP MLA Trevor Clarke Thanks to @TrevorClarkeMLA 4 huge support and frank contribution to the debate https://t.co/IIOfDnSULB— Jacquie Richardson (@CEOPositiveLife) November 29, 2016 Nov 30th 2016, 7:46 AM A NORTHERN IRISH politician has admitted that he did not know that heterosexual people could contract HIV, in a Stormont debate calling for a new awareness campaign on the virus.BBC News reports that DUP’s Trevor Clarke had previously thought that only homosexual people could contract HIV, until a charity explained the facts to him.“When I came here in 2007,” he said. “I would have dismissed the possibility that I would speak about HIV today, because I was one of those who did not understand the stigma attached to it.”Clarke, along with two DUP colleagues, proposed yesterday’s debate on a new HIV awareness campaign and increasing support for the work of the charity Positive Life, which helps people living with HIV in Northern Ireland.He argued against an amendment to the proposal put forward by People Before Profit MLA Eamonn McCann.McCann had proposed that the campaign stressed the disproportionate impact of HIV on gay and bisexual men.He said that it was foolish to believe that the stigma associated with HIV arose because heterosexual people with the condition may be thought of as being gay.McCann also referred to Ian Paisley’s “Save Ulster from Sodomy” campaign, which was launched in 1977 but failed to prevent the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Northern Ireland.“What’s wrong with sodomy anyway?” he asked.In arguing against McCann’s amendment, Clarke said: Source: Jacquie Richardson/Twitter Wednesday 30 Nov 2016, 7:46 AM I am not trying to get a rise out of Mr McCann when I say this, but I feel that his amendment, had he moved it, would have been unhelpful to people who, like me, were ignorant of the fact that this disease can affect heterosexuals.“I think that we should talk about all who suffer with this condition; not just those who have the highest risk,” he added.McCann retorted by claiming that Clarke’s reasoning was an “unconsciously homophobic intervention”.The DUP motion on a new campaign for HIV awareness and prevention was passed in Stormont.The CEO of HIV charity Positive Life welcomed the steps taken by Trevor Clarke and thanked him for bringing the issue forward.

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – A South Florida bailiff is making a long trek for the second time to help raise awareness of human trafficking.Last summer, Broward County bailiff Deputy Robert DeHart walked from Fort Lauderdale to Washington, D.C. — a journey of 1,065 miles that took him 51 days to complete.“It was life-changing,” said DeHart. “I don’t think I still grasp the impact. It’s was much, and it’s going to remain with me the rest of my life.”Florida ranks third in the amount of human trafficking cases in the country, but DeHart felt like it wasn’t getting enough attention.“I just felt I wanted to be a male face being that we’re the biggest perpetrators,” said DeHart. “I want to be a male face and try to make a difference.”DeHart said he felt like the victims weren’t being heard.“My goal would be to attract the attention, especially the victims and survivors of human trafficking,” said DeHart, “so that they can see this guy here wants to be their voice.” On Aug. 11, DeHart will embark on a second walk to raise awareness. This time, DeHart’s walk will start in San Francisco as he walks along the California coastline.The journey of 650 miles should take him over a month and a half to complete.California has the most cases of human trafficking in the country.“I’m hoping that it’s going to attract the attention of other survivors so they can know they’re not alone,” DeHart said.Many survivors will be joining DeHart for parts of his California walk to raise their voices following the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein.“This thing is serious, and it’s everywhere,” said DeHart. “Rich, poor — it doesn’t matter.”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

first_imgBEIJING: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, now on a visit to China, has described Dhaka’s ties with India and engagements with New Delhi as “organic”, saying it was “beyond a few billions of dollars of trade”. Hasina, who addressed the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in the northern Chinese port city of Dalian on Tuesday, said she always believed that despite differences in size and capacity compared to India, Bangladesh can only secure its peace and security Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us “It is just organic. We have shaded blood together for our (Bangladesh’s) independence,” Hasina said on Bangladesh-India relations. It was also “beyond a few billions of dollars of trade,” she said. On the other hand, Bangladesh’s relationship with China was good as well as “China is our partner in mega projects and economic advancements,” Hasina was quoted as saying by the official Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS). Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us “Our ties with Japan are historic, not just as the largest ODA partner,” she said adding, “Russia, another partner who stood by us during our liberation war, is now helping us in our energy security area”. Asked how she maintains friendship with both India and China at the WEF meeting, Hasina said her government has tried to be balanced and objective in its foreign relations. Advertise With Us “In the past 10 years of our government, I have tried to position Bangladesh in a balanced and objective manner with all our friends globally to optimise our economic and development aspirations,” she said in response to the question. She added that her government always made it clear to all that Bangladesh does not harbour any military ambition as “it is against our values and ethos”. Hasina, who has reached Beijing for official talks with the Chinese leadership, said that when she first assumed office as the premier in 1996, her government resolved a most challenging issue of sharing Ganges river water with India. “We amicably delimited our maritime boundary with Myanmar and India. And now, Bangladesh and India are joining hands to uniquely develop our trans-boundary river navigation,” she told the WEF meeting. “We are for a rule-based system. Yes, geo-politics will always be a part of life. But we have to carefully appreciate and balance issues (as) we cannot trade off long-term interests for short-term gains,” she said. Hasina pointed out that a cooperative yet competitive environment among all countries could be the “insurance of their shared prosperity”. Her address was followed by a question-answer session, when replying to a query about China’s growing forays in Bangladesh and implementing several mega projects in the country. She said Bangladesh was not worried about the “debt trap” as the mega deals with China were appropriately negotiated. “Many people talk about the ‘debt trap’. I have a simple answer. As long as these mega projects are in our people’s interest, has the right pay off and negotiated rightly, we must not be worried,” she said as many in Bangladesh are concerned after Sri Lanka’s ratio of foreign debt to GDP rose significantly as the island nation implemented several Chinese infrastructure projects. China is involved in some Bangladesh’s mega infrastructure projects while “our external debt is around 14.3 per cent of GDP (which) clearly is a sign of a healthy economy,” she was quoted as saying by the BSS. “During the past term of my government (2014-18), we engaged and deepened our ties with India-China-Japan-US-Europe-Russia seamlessly,” Hasina said. As a fast-growing economy, Bangladesh needs each of our friends for diverse purposes – not certainly at the expenses of another. “Each of our friends has distinct competence and interest as well. As long as our relationships are based on mutual trust and respect, we all gain for our peoples,” she said. Hasina predicted that in 10 years from now, Bangladesh is likely to become 25th largest economy globally and “whatever gaps or limitations that we have, we are ready to correct those. So, we are for ‘open regionalism'”.last_img read more

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 09 November 2016, then Republican president-elect Donald Trump and his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway acknowledge the crowd during his election night event at the New York Hilton Midtown in the early morning hours in New York City. Photo: AFPHe is one of Donald Trump’s harshest critics.She is one of the president’s closest advisers.And they’re husband and wife.The marriage of George T Conway III and Kellyanne Conway has been described as the best reality show in Washington.Kellyanne Conway, 51, served as Trump’s campaign manager and is credited by many with making possible Trump’s improbable elevation to the White House.Now counselor to the president, she is known for her pugnacious promotion of the administration’s policies as a guest on cable news shows and for coining the phrase “alternative facts.”George Conway, 55, is her husband of 17 years and the father of their four children — three girls and a boy, George Jr.A prominent conservative attorney, Conway is a former member of the Republican Party who — until he soured on Trump — was under consideration for a high-ranking Justice Department position.Asked last month on a Yahoo News podcast why he turned down the chance to become assistant attorney general, Conway called the administration a “dumpster fire” and said he would rather “move to Australia” than vote for Trump again.It was a rare media appearance by Conway, who prefers to use his Twitter feed — @gtconway3d — to spew an endless stream of mockery and derision at a president whom he clearly loathes.As Trump’s legal woes deepened last week, Conway retweeted a picture of a 1973 newspaper headline in which then-president Richard Nixon insisted “I’m not a crook.”When Trump claimed last week that a filing by New York prosecutors in a case involving his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, “totally clears the president,” Conway had a stinging rejoinder.”Except for that little part where the US Attorney’s Office says that you directed and coordinated with Cohen to commit two felonies,” he tweeted to his 225,000 followers. “Other than that, totally scot-free.”He responded to another Trump tweet with a reference to the federal statute that covers witness tampering, a tweet which received nearly 59,000 “likes” and nearly 17,000 retweets.’Disrespectful’In between his own Twitter jabs at the president, Conway retweets a constant stream of news articles and links critical of the Trump White House.Last month, the Harvard and Yale graduate joined other conservative lawyers in forming a group called Checks and Balances dedicated to upholding the Constitution and the “rule of law.”Kellyanne Conway herself has rarely addressed her husband’s anti-Trump agitation, although she did call them “disrespectful” in an interview with The Washington Post in August.This 17 April 2017 file photo shows George T. Conway III, husband of White House Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, attending the 139th Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC. Photo: AFP”I think it disrespects his wife,” she told the newspaper.She later claimed in an interview with “Fox News Sunday” that it “doesn’t affect me or my job at all.””I’m sure the feminists are really cheering me on today, an independent… strong woman in a very powerful position that disagrees with her husband,” she said.In a light-hearted reference to her husband’s newfound prominence, she briefly changed her Twitter bio to describe herself as “The ‘Kellyanne Conway’ in ‘Kellyanne Conway’s Husband.'”On the Yahoo News podcast, George Conway was asked what his wife thinks of his constant swipes at Trump.”I don’t think she likes it,” he said. “But I’ve told her I don’t like this administration so it’s even, you know.”It’s one of these things,” he went on. “If I had a nickel for everybody in Washington who disagrees with their spouse about something that happens in this town, you know, I wouldn’t be on this podcast I’d probably be on a beach somewhere.”Earlier this month, Trump’s son Eric came out in defense of Kellyanne Conway and tweeted a condemnation of her husband.”Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all,” Eric Trump tweeted. “@KellyannePolls is (a) great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”George Conway did not respond personally to the attack but retweeted a number of comments by others mocking Eric Trump’s show at gallantry.Trump himself has had little to say about George Conway but he did accuse “Mr Kellyanne Conway” last month of “just trying to get publicity for himself.”last_img read more

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterKeemala offers unique Phuket experiences to its guests, centred around its innovative accommodation choices, each incorporates the story of one of four different clans and the history of these fictitious ancient Phuket settlers. The architecture is a stark contrast to most hotel accommodation, blending the indigenous stories of the clans with the decadence of an upscale resort,  and is designed by Thailand-based talent Architect Space.Pisit Aongskultong from Pisud Design Company has designed the interiors and is managing the creative vision of the resort. Set into the hillside, the resort makes use of slopes offers sea views, streams, waterfalls and indigenous trees to create unique topographical conditions for its cottages, treehouses and pool villas.Keemala offers accommodation choices with sizes ranging from 126 square metres to 185 square metres. All dwellings come complete with private pools and offer a range of both sea and mountain views.The design of the 16 Clay Cottages reflects the earthiness of the Pa-ta-pea (earth) clan who believed in a strong connection to the earth and harnessed agriculture as their trade. As the name suggests, clay, straw and ceramics have been featured in the overall design.The design of the seven Tent Cottages was inspired by the Khon-Jorn (wanderer) people – a tribe of nomads who excelled in hunting and trading. Their roaming lifestyle is exhibited in the tent-structures and the use of animal prints and richly dense textures of materials pays homage to their way of life.The seven imaginative ‘Tree Houses’ are built to represent the We-ha (sky) clan who worshipped the universe and chose to live suspended from the trees to be nearer to the sky. This accommodation category uses building techniques to give the impression that the tree houses are indeed hanging from the nearby trees; some of the furniture inside the two-storey cocoons is also hung from the ceiling.The Rung-Nok (nest) community inspired the design of the eight Bird’s Nest Pool Villas. This group enjoyed an opulent way of life compared to the other clans. Thus the interwoven design of their homes was to aid protection and to maintain privacy.The architecture and interiors of the four different accommodation types reflects the skills and way of life of each of the groups, in design, texture of fabrics used, colours and construction materials. Fixtures and furniture is being in the most part sourced from within communities in Thailand and handmade using local and traditional methods, adhering to the Keemala ethos that serves to celebrate and cultivate Thai culture. In the spa, treatments and wellness programmes are designed to utilise bygone techniques, with natural herbs used as medicinal remedies in conjunction with old-fashioned pampering. The eight treatment rooms offer a haven of renewal and the spa also offers a Thai massage pavilion, steam and sauna rooms along with a fitness room with views of the sea, yoga and meditation spaces, making Keemala an ideal destination for retreats.As an extension of the wholesome spirit of Keemala, cuisine offered is also organic and locally sourced and grown where possible. The menus incorporate healthy and nutritious meals. Keemala offers three outlets for dining; the main restaurant, a pool bar, a smaller wine cellar ideal for small parties and meetings and destination dining will be offered to those guests who would like to enjoy the ambience of somewhere distinct.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

first_imgThe car bomb which killed 53-year-old investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta two weeks ago has highlighted the frightening frequency with which explosives are placed under cars and outside homes in Cyprus.So regular have these attacks become that they rarely merit more than a news brief in newspapers.Unlike the tragic death of Galizia, bombs in Cyprus are rarely to harm but more to intimidate and frighten, deputy police spokesman Stelios Stylianou told the Sunday Mail.They often stem from differences between groups dealing with organised crime including drugs, ‘protection’ services, outstanding debts, competing businesses or cases where someone may have been cheated out of money.“If we’re lucky, then the bomb won’t explode and we have a better chance on gathering evidence about the person that placed it,” Stylianou said.Until September this year, there had been 11 attempts to destroy property by explosives, statistics by the police reveal. Eight of those were on cars and three on premises which include homes and businesses.In 2016, the number of attacks spiked to 30, an increase from the previous year’s 22. In 2014, there were 21, while in 2013 the number was at 32. In 2012 and 2011, there were 30 and 31 attempts respectively. The figures do not include arson attacks.This month alone, however, the car of deputy chairman of the football association Giorgos Koumas was destroyed in an arson attack while earlier this week, a bomb was placed underneath a rented car.Attacks are particularly prevalent in Limassol.“The arrest of the (non-commissioned) officer of the national guard in Limassol last month, has helped quiet things down a bit in Limassol, I believe,” Stylianou said.The 44-year-old suspect is believed to be connected to at least two bomb attacks. A testimony against him also claims he had stolen explosives from the unit he was stationed at.In cases where the car is torched or a bomb does go off, evidence related to the investigation is often entirely obliterated by the flames.What creates more of a stumbling block however are people’s refusal to cooperate. It might be because the intimidation has worked and they are too frightened to talk. In other cases, the victims may be from the underworld who choose to say they don’t know what’s behind the attack because they intend to take matters into their own hands, Stylianou added.Even more common is that “the perpetrators aren’t usually the people that have differences with anyone but people that are just following orders.”Navigating through the maze requires finding the person behind the person who placed the bomb which is usually difficult as people’s silence can also be bought for a price.“Many times, people are brought from abroad to carry out the acts,” Stylianou added.High profile attempts of silencing or intimidating also hit the news. Last year, two cars parked in the garage of the home belonging to chairwoman at the time of Hellenic Bank, Irena Georgiadou, incurred extensive damage after one was torched.In 2015, arsonists targeted a vehicle that was parked outside the home of Bank of Cyprus CEO John Hourican in Nicosia.Unlike Malta, journalists in Cyprus are rarely the victims.“There are attempts to silence journalists in Cyprus but they take on a different form,” head of the Cyprus union of journalists George Frangos told the Sunday Mail.“The threat usually comes in the form of financial loss – if you write against us there will be no money [advertising],” he said.“Or if you go against a political party, they will find a way to suffocate you in terms of circulation.”These threats are relatively common but physical threats in the form of arson, bombs or anything of the like are rare, he added.One such incident did take place last year, however, when a car belonging to journalist Dina Kleanthous, the crime correspondent for online portal Reporter was torched.Back in the 1980s a bomb was placed outside the home of Alithia editor Alecos Constantinides.One woman, who used to run her own business and did not wish to be identified, said irrespective of how much time passed since a bomb was placed under her daughter’s car – in an attempt to frighten her – the question of why still haunts her.The woman told the Sunday Mail she had no run-ins with the underworld, no outstanding debts and felt that she got on well even with competitors within her line of business. She did not wish to make many details public out of fear of being identified.“One time, I went abroad – it was a very last minute trip, very few people knew I had travelled. And after a business meeting, I was out for dinner and I got a call saying a bomb was placed under my daughter’s car.”Her daughter at the time was also abroad for a long period of time and the business woman would use both her own car and her daughter’s interchangeably.The bomb had gone off between 12am and 1am. “It was a time when had I been in Cyprus, it would’ve been normal for me to get in the car and drive to the kiosk to get a pack of cigarettes, or some milk for the next day.”The blast was so loud a nearby business owner, who had just opened the door to go home, had to go to the doctor for his ears. The whole of his store was smashed.“My mother, who lives nearby heard the blast. For a long while, she couldn’t sleep until she knew every single one of us was back home and she could see all the cars parked in the garage,” she said.“I couldn’t sleep all night because I kept wondering who and why.”But it was only when she returned to Cyprus that what had happened really sunk in.“I can’t ever forget though when I saw the damage. Half the car was missing. You don’t realise what happened, it hadn’t fully hit me until I saw the scene for myself.”Nevertheless, the intimidation didn’t scare her, she said.“I arrived in Cyprus in the morning and the very same night I was back at work. I refused to let it defeat me.” You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
