The mystery of Shane Todd: Did US electronic engineer commit suicide – or was he murdered because he knew too many Chinese secrets? - Asia - World The body of Shane Todd was found on 24 June 2012 by his girlfriend in his apartment in Singapore, hanging from a strap attached to a door. A police autopsy said his death was caused by asphyxiation, but his parents believe he was murdered. They said suicide notes purportedly left by their son were faked and the initial police account of the scene bore little relation to what they found when they arrived at the apartment 48 hours after his death. Mr Todd, who was 31 when he died, had joined the Singapore government-backed Institute for Micro Electronics (IME) 18 months earlier and for the final year of his life worked on an IME project to develop an amplifying device, using gallium nitride (GaN), a heat-resistant material with the potential to make superconductors with many possible uses in the civilian and military fields.

After terrifying school massacre, Peshawar teachers pack guns - In one of the desk's drawers, within easy reach of Abdul Saeed's right hand, lies a fully loaded pistol. A teacher for 15 years, Saeed argues that bringing a gun to school reassures his students, who are still terrified after a brazen attack on the Army Public School and Degree College in December, when Taliban militants stormed the building and massacred dozens of students during a six-hour siege. "They would look to the door every time they heard a sound. Now when they see me wearing a gun, they need not worry and can focus on the task at hand, which is to educate themselves," Saeed says.

Dispute Over Voter Data Leaves Some Missouri Democrats Frustrated click to enlarge Photo courtesy of Flickr/Jamelle Bouie Maria Chappelle-Nadal threatened to give a speech about how the Missouri Democratic Party "aborts the dreams of poor black girls ... who want to run for Congress." For candidates running for office, few tools are more essential than the NGP Voter Activation Network, or VAN. Which is one reason that candidates like Bruce Franks Jr. are frustrated that the Missouri Democratic Party won’t give them access. “By not be able to use those tools, it puts us at a disadvantage, especially when we’re running against incumbents who are experienced,” says Franks, a St.

Doctors claim jab can regenerate damaged tissue after one injection Pioneering stem cell treatment could avoid thousands of hip replacements Five NHS hospitals will trial jabs which have potential to be 'life-changing'Doctors claim jab can regenerate damaged tissue after just one injection Patients often face years of pain before having a hip replacement By Katherine Keogh and Paul Dinsdale For The Mail On Sunday Published: 22:08 GMT, 31 January 2015 | Updated: 12:33 GMT, 1 February 2015 A pioneering stem cell treatment could avoid thousands of hip replacements – by helping patients 'regrow' damaged bone. Five NHS hospitals will trial the jabs, which doctors claim can regenerate damaged tissue after just one injection. And a leading specialist says it has the potential to be 'life-changing' for those with bone disease avascular necrosis (AVN).

The Daily 202 from PowerPost Sarah Palin hugs Donald Trump after she introduced him in Tulsa, Okla., yesterday. (AP Photo/Brandi Simons) — Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump underscores something remarkable: Neither Trump nor Ted Cruz, the two Republicans leading in the polls, has the endorsement of a single sitting governor or senator. “It is staggering that Trump does not have a major elected official or any statewide elected officeholder anywhere in the country supporting him,” said former New Hampshire GOP chairman Fergus Cullen, who has not endorsed anyone. “People who actually win elections recognize he’d be a train wreck … but his supporters love that. And Cruz wears the lack of a single endorsement from a Senate colleague as a badge of honor.”

Young people are setting up workers’ co-operatives to fight against inequality Rent and property prices are not the only thing stacked against young people. Low wages and insecurity in competitive job markets – be they creative or in the third sector – are extending further into graduates’ working lives. Rather than a youthful rite of passage, zero-hours contracts and low pay are now a regular feature of certain professions well into people’s 30s. Wednesday last day to register for March 15 presidential primary in Missouri ST.

Registration information and links are available at the Missouri Secretary of State's website, HERE. The angriest and most pessimistic people in America aren’t the hipster protesters who flitted in and out of Occupy Wall Street. They aren’t the hashtavists of #BlackLivesMatter. They aren’t the remnants of the American labor movement or the savvy young dreamers who confront politicians with their American accents and un-American legal status. The angriest and most pessimistic people in America are the people we used to call Middle Americans. Middle-class and middle-aged; not rich and not poor; people who are irked when asked to press 1 for English, and who wonder how white male became an accusation rather than a description.

What Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Were Doing in Their 30s What do Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich have in common? They were all once 30-years-old. And while each of them celebrated – or cried about – their 20s coming to a close at different points in time, the careers and lives they were leading at age 30 offer a glimpse of who they’d later become. Here’s what all six remaining candidates were up to long before they were making headlines on a daily basis.

As E.U. article the authors, david herszenhorn and Alan Cowell give a good example of summarizing this article. Both authors have kept it straight to the point.
