KKE: Interview with the Greek Communist Party

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Wikinews reporter Iain Macdonald has performed an interview with Dr Isabella Margara, a London-based member of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE). In the interview Margara sets out the communist response to current events in Greece as well as discussing the viability of a communist economy for the nation. She also hit back at Petros Tzomakas, a member of another Greek far-left party which criticised KKE in a previous interview.

The interview comes amid tensions in cash-strapped Greece, where the government is introducing controversial austerity measures to try to ease the nation’s debt-problem. An international rescue package has been prepared by European Union member states and the International Monetary Fund – should Greece require a bailout; protests have been held against government attempts to manage the economic situation.

Latham quits as Australian Labor leader

Tuesday, January 18, 2005

AUSTRALIA —Following hospitalisation for pancreatitis and ongoing speculation about his leadership, Mark Latham has resigned from his roles as leader of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and also the Federal Member for Werriwa. He cited as reasons the media harassment, and a desire to put his family and health first.

Mr Latham became leader of the ALP just over a year ago, on 2 December, 2003, leading the party during the October 2004 federal election. He was hospitalised in the run-up to that election, also for treatment of pancreatitis. Following the defeat of his party, his leadership increasingly came under question.

He fell ill a second time almost simultaneously with last year’s Indian Ocean tsunami disaster. His failure to issue a statement on the tsunami drew criticism from the media and calls for his resignation from within his own party, even after it was revealed that he had been incapacitated at the time.

Mr Latham’s resignation sidesteps the possibility of a leadership challenge by other members of the party and leaves no clear successor.

Enterprise Search Application Importance In Business

Submitted by: Peter Disuja

Enterprise Search is basically related to search technology application to get information reside with in the organizations. The result comes from the organization and it will view publicly.

Basically there are two types of enterprise search one is called web search and another is desktop search. The main task of enterprise search to presents the result from various sources like document management systems, file systems, emails, intranet, filesite and database etc. Each business organization want to provide better services to their client and enterprise search is one of the key for business to provide the result for the customer in a quick way by a single query search. The large enterprise organization always uses this application for managing their business workflow.

It is very helpful in business process management because in an organization there are so many file systems and document resides and to get a particular data or file from the system is a very difficult task and this issue can easily solve by this application. It is quite similar to universal search used by Google and other search engine.For enterprise search systems it makes sense to talk about the phases that content goes through from source repository to search results. The distinction between the phases may vary from vendor to vendor, but these are the common ones.

This application used very frequently in all most all domains like Business, Travel, Shopping, Software etc. In business domain it used to maintain the document and records for find data in a quick way. If we discuss about shopping it is used to present the products by a single query search. In travel case it is used to provide the particular package or services needed by their customer in a easy way. Many analysis operations (processing/parsing) must be exactly the same on index and query side. Examples are tokenization, lowercasing and stemming. If they are only performed on index side, your query will not match, since the tokens are different.

For some analysis types you can choose. For instance, “early binding security” is where access control attributes are stored when the document is indexed; “late binding security” is when each hit in the results list is checked at display time. The trade-off is usually in performance on either side (which can have an impact on either how “fresh” an index is, or how quick a system will respond to a query).

The factors that determine the relevance of search results within the context of an enterprise overlap with but are different from those that apply to web search. In general, enterprise search engines cannot take advantage of the rich link structure as is found on the web’s hypertext content, however, a new breed of Enterprise search engines based on a bottom-up Web 2.0 technology are providing both a contributory approach and hyper linking within the enterprise. Algorithms like PageRank exploit hyperlink structure to assign authority to documents, and then use that authority as a query-independent relevance factor.

American Idol winner Ruben Studdard wins lawsuit

Friday, June 16, 2006

Former American Idol winner Ruben Studdard has won a lawsuit and $2 million against his ex-manager Ronald W. Edwards and Edwards’ promotions company, Sez Inc. The lawsuit was for misappropriating the singer’s money and credit cards. The suit claimed Edwards misused more than $246,000 of the singer’s money. According to the judge’s ruling, Edwards stole money from Studdard’s checking and other bank accounts, improperly used his credit cards and even used Studdard’s money to repay a $10,000 bank loan.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Scott Vowell awarded Studdard $500,000 for actual losses and another $1.5 million in punitive damages. Vowell dismissed Edwards’ promotions company from the suit because it was bankrupt and had no money or assets. Edwards filed a petition for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on June 17, 2005. Studdard has sold 2.2 million records, but because of the damage done to his credit by Edwards, it is now even hard for Ruben to buy a home, said Vowell.

Man cuts off his own penis in UK restaurant

Wednesday, April 25, 2007

An unnamed Polish man, 35, is being treated at a hospital in London, England after he cut off his penis with a knife at Zizzi’s pizza restaurant on Strand Street in the city of Westminster.

“We were called at 9.00 p.m. on Sunday to a restaurant on the Strand to reports of a man in possession of a knife. Officers attended to discover a man believed to be 30-40 years old suffering from an injury. He was taken to a south London hospital in a stable condition. No one else was injured and his injuries are believed to be self inflicted,” said a Scotland Yard spokesperson.

Police had to use CS tear gas on the victim in order to subdue him to get him to the hospital to receive medical attention.

Witnesses say that the man came into the restaurant, picked a knife up off the floor of the kitchen and then got onto a table and cut off his penis.

“At around 9 p.m. on Sunday, a man walked into the Zizzi restaurant on The Strand, down the stairs to the basement restaurant area and tried to enter a kitchen. Members of staff stopped him, at which he ran into a second kitchen area. The man then picked up a kitchen knife and slashed himself across the wrist and groin areas before running back into the restaurant, where he continued to stab himself,” said a spokesperson for the restaurant.

Surgeons are attempting to reattach his organ in what doctors call the first time this kind of surgery has been performed in the UK. It is not yet known if the operation was successful.

“If it doesn’t take, then you would have to re-amputate it. Attaching the penis is a very long, complex and painstaking operation,” said Francis Chinegwundoh, a urologist at St Bartholomew’s Hospital which is located in London. Chinegwundoh also said that that the victim will not feel his penis and it will not be possible for him to maintain an erection unless he uses a special machine, even if the operation were a success.

Wikinews interviews candidate for Cleveland mayor Arthur Kostendt

Monday, June 14, 2021

Arthur Oliver Kostendt, a candidate running in the mayoral election of the US city of Cleveland, Ohio set to take place November 2, discussed his campaign and policies with Wikinews this spring.

According to Cleveland Scene, 29-year-old Kostendt is a member of the Cuyahoga County, Ohio Republican Party but has referred to his campaign as “casual”. According to his web site’s personal biography, he was a cadet for the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), scout platoon leader for the 2nd Squadron of the 107th Cavalry Regiment of the Ohio Army National Guard and logistics officer for the 1st Battalion of the 145th Armored Regiment. He served in Kuwait, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and assisted coalition force detachments in Southeast Asia.

Kostendt is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and summa cum laude graduate of Cleveland State University. He writes he uses an apostrophe to abbreviate his middle name as “Arthur O’Kostendt” instead of the customary period after the O to emphasise his Irish heritage.

A poll published May 5 by Baldwin Wallace University, which does not feature Mr Kostendt, has Dennis Kucinich and Basheer Jones leading in the mayoral race by 17.8 and 13.3 points, respectively, with a margin of error of up to five per cent either way. 48% of those surveyed were undecided. Incumbent mayor Frank G. Jackson, who won the 2017 Cleveland mayoral election with 59% of the vote, is eligible for a fifth term but announced on May 6 he would retire.

Laser hair removal at home is not only safe, but also painless and very effective in removing unwanted hair. Treatment for laser hair removal was formerly known to be available at clinics and spas only, but technology has seen the practice done at the comfort and privacy of homes. FDA has approved the safety and effectiveness of a few products that can be used at home. This typescript describes the functionality of laser hair removal machine as well as tips on how to use these products.

How A laser Removal System Works

With the advent technology, both men and women can easily and quickly get rid of unwanted hair. Laser treatment uses laser beams which are bombarded againist the targeted body surface. The beam penetrates the skin and is changed into heat energy. The heat energy is then used to destroy the hair follicles and thus impede hair growth.

Hair growth takes place in several cycles. It is therefore important to note that, to completely or permanently remove hair, you need practice laser hair removal 6 to 8 times at intervals of 3 to 6 weeks. You can be able to do this at the confinement of your own home, thanks to the many home hair removal equipments available in the market.

The home laser product is always in a kit, accompanied with a charging unit and a sensor. This kit is small and portable and its functionality is based on transfer of pulses or energy which renders the hair follicle inactive. The sensor determines skin tone and thus reduces the occurrence of side effects.

Other than being efficient, laser hair removal is painless. It seeks to eliminate the tiniest follicles and you can use precision to target places that are otherwise unreachable. It is also safe as it does not cause life-threatening ailments such as cancer.

#Side Effects

Laser light is not that safe. It is advisable to use sunglasses while using the machine to avoid the possibility of harming the eyes. People who have darker skin are also advised to steer away from the machine as the laser heats melanin and might cause skin disorders.

Excessive usage of laser hair removal can cause white patches on the skin. The patches prove difficult to remove as they take a very long time to fade away. If the intensity of the laser is not adjusted, it may cause burning or unwanted scars, especially to people with dark skins.

Patients recovering from acne and any other skin illnesses should not use laser hair removal. Similarly, people who have sensitive skin should also stay away from the laser machine. Here are some tips on how to moderate side effects caused by laser hair removal.

*Do not apply lotions, creams or make up before treatment.
