first_imgLONDON — Drugmakers GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer are merging their healthcare divisions, creating a business with combined sales of 9.8 billion pounds ($12.7 billion).British-based Glaxo will own 68 per cent of the joint venture, while U.S.-based Pfizer will own the remaining 32 per cent stake.The joint venture will bring together Glaxo’s brands such as Sensodyne, Voltaren and Panadol with Pfizer’s Advil and Centrum.Shareholders have long pressured Glaxo to break itself in two companies — with one focused on pharmaceuticals and vaccines, and the other on consumer healthcare. Glaxo aims to do this within three years.Emma Walmsley, CEO of Glaxo, says that with the “future intention to separate, the transaction also presents a clear pathway forward for GSK to create a new global pharmaceuticals/vaccines company, with an R&D (research and development) approach.”The Associated Presslast_img read more

by Zakaria wadghiriRabat – A man who attacked Strasbourg’s Christmas market is on the run after he opened fire and “spread terror” Tuesday evening, in the words of French interior minister Christophe Castaner.On Wednesday, police made an initial announcement that three people were dead and 13 injured after the attack. However, the toll was later revised to two dead and 14 injured, nine of them seriously.The Paris Public Prosecutor’s Office has opened an investigation into “murders, attempted murders involving a terrorist enterprise and terrorist criminal conspiracy,” Castaner said.Castaner identified the shooter, who was already known to law enforcement. The prefecture of Bas-Rhin indicated that the suspect was registered as “S,” short for “State security.” According to the Guardian, French police had already tried to arrest the suspect earlier Tuesday for armed robbery.

Not fatally wounded, he escaped in a taxi, said BFM TV.No one immediately claimed responsibility, but the US-based Site Intelligence Group, which monitors radical websites, said that ISIS supporters were celebrating.In recent years, several extremist attacks have hit France, including coordinated attacks on several Paris sites that killed 130 people and injured hundreds in November 2015, and a truck attack in Nice in 2016 that killed 86 people and injured hundreds. read more

first_imgNew feesSo how will the new fees introduced compare to other countries around the world?Most countries request fees for printing or photocopying costs or when a decision is appealed, but just three require upfront fees.IrelandThe number of requests declined by 50 per cent when fees were first introduced in Ireland. An application fee of €15 applies, or €10 for medical card holders, after which a number of extra charges can apply. These include “€20.95 per hour of search and retrieval”, and just over €10 if a CD is used to store documents.Under the new amendment to the Bill, if a request is consists of more than one piece of question seeking “separate and distinct information”, each part will count as a separate request and thus encounter the €15 fee.This means that a request which contained five requests will now cost €75 instead of just €15.IsraelCurrently a fee of NIS 77 (around €16) applies to all requests.  Handling and production fees also apply up to NIS 204 (around €43), which includes NIS 40 (€8.45) per hour. The cost of the request can be more than NIS 204, but the applicant must be informed of this first.However, this is now set to be cut, as reported by the blog New Israel Fund. Some believe this could be as much as 80%, bringing the cost well below what is paid in Ireland.CanadaA fee of $5 (around €3.50) applies to each request. Further fees will then apply if the requests takes longer than three hours to process. These are charged at $30 per hour, and $0.25 per photocopy. 50 per cent of the total estimated free must be paid upfront.Read: Brendan Howlin “had to fight a battle” for new Freedom of Information law >More: Department’s FOI amendments ‘run entirely contrary to spirit’ of bill > THE LATEST AMENDMENT to the Freedom of Information Act is due is beginning its passage through government.This raft of changes will see all public bodies and those “in receipt of significant funding from the Exchequer” be subject to the legislation, but has come under fire due to a change in the process which will increase fees.If multiple pieces of information are requested, each will be treated as a separate application, and so an individual fee will be required for each.A previous criticism of the bill has been amended since it was first announced in August following concerns from government.Section 17 (4) (b) would have required officials to handle electronic database queries in the same way in which they would deal with queries related to printed files, something which Solicitor Simon McGarr called an effort by the government to “uninvent computers”.‘Filleted’Speaking at the Department of Education yesterday, Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore said that it was part of the government’s plan to restore “provisions of the Freedom of Information Act which had been filleted”, and that the changes introduced were necessary to address the amount of time the requests take to process.last_img read more

first_imgHIGHER DOSES OF pain killers can increase the risk of non-fatal heart attacks, strokes, and death by about a third.That’s according to new research published in Online First in The Lancet.For decades, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been the cornerstone in managing pain for people with inflammatory disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, and are some of the most commonly used drugs in the world. However, earlier research linked the drugs with gastrointestinal complications. A new generation of pain killers were developed to reduce the side-effects of stomach issues but they were found to have increased the risk of heart attacks and death.This new study now shows that older types of NSAIDs, such as diclofenac and ibuprofen, are associated with similar risks of heart disease.Hearth diseaseResearch found that for every 1,000 people – with a moderate risk of heart disease – given a high-dose pain killer for a year, about three would experience heart attack, of which one would be fatal.Also, all NSAIDs double the risk of heart failure and produce a two to four times increased risk of serious upper gastrointestinal complications such as bleeding ulcers.The research combined data on outcomes of over 353,000 patients comparing one NSAID with another NSAID or placebo.The analysis of patient data also shows that the size of these risks can be predicted, which may help physicians decide which types of patient are best suited to which NSAID regimen.Read: Rise in ‘designer drugs’ poses serious health risk: UN report>More: NCA survey finds wide variations in drug pricing in pharmacies nationwide>last_img read more

first_imgThe city of Camas has begun improvements to its wastewater treatment facility that will make the plant more environmentally friendly and allow it to produce fertilizer to be used locally.The $12 million project will increase solids capacity to meet the projected needs of the city for the next 20 years, convert the digester process to produce high-quality biosolids and upgrade technology and software, said Eric Levison, Camas public works director.Construction of the improvements has begun and is expected to wrap up in early 2012, Levison said. The facility was built in the 1970s. The city was recently named the recipient of a $3.5 million loan from the Washington Department of Ecology. About $1.77 million of the loan is forgiven principal, meaning the city does not need to repay the money, City Administrator Lloyd Halverson said. The remainder of the 20-year loan has an interest rate of 2.8 percent, he said.The majority of the project is funded by a $10 million loan from the Washington State Public Works Board to be repaid at 0.5 of a percent interest over the next 20 years. The city will use reserve funds and bonds to cover any remaining costs, Levison said.The improved plant will use an anaerobic process, which does not require oxygen, as opposed to an aerobic process that uses oxygen. The change means the new facility will produce class A biosolids, which are safe to use as fertilizer for nearly all applications, Levison said. Anaerobic microorganisms will decompose the organic pollutants. The remaining material will then be moved to a belt dryer, which will produce small pellets.last_img read more

first_img The scientists, P. Panagiotopoulos, D.G. Papazoglou, A. Couairon and S. Tzortzakis, from institutions in Greece and France, have published a paper in a recent issue of Nature Communications in which they show theoretically and experimentally how ring-Airy beams transform into light bullets.An airy beam is a type of light beam that has the distinct feature of forming a parabolic arc as it propagates through space. In fact, it gets its name from the Airy integral, developed in the 1830s by Sir George Biddell Airy to describe the way light bends in a rainbow. In 2011, scientists (including some of the authors of the current paper) experimentally demonstrated an Airy beam in the shape of a ring. In the linear regime, this ring-Airy beam can focus itself into a sharp focal point, which could make it an ideal candidate for precise laser ablation applications in hard-to-reach environments.In the new study, the scientists have investigated the properties of ring-Airy beams in the non-linear regime, and found them to be even more impressive than in the linear regime. The scientists found that the ring-Airy wavepacket reshapes itself into a propagating high intensity light bullet that spreads neither in space nor in time over significantly longer distances than Gaussian beams, which are often used in conventional lasers.The researchers also found that, when the input power is increased, the ring-Airy beam’s focus position is not shifted nearly as much as it is for Gaussian beams. The researchers could mathematically predict the position of the ring-Airy beam’s focus for a given input power, which they confirmed through experiments.These highly focused, high-intensity ring-Airy beam light bullets offer a very high level of control that cannot be achieved with equivalent Gaussian beams, making them ideal for a variety of optical applications ranging from precision materials processing to attosecond drivers. Citation: Scientists create light bullets for high-intensity optical applications (2013, November 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-11-scientists-bullets-high-intensity-optical-applications.html Journal information: Nature Communications More information: P.

(Phys.org) —Controlling the propagation of high-intensity light beams as they travel through air (or other transparent media) is a challenging task, but scientists have now shown that a relatively new type of light beam called a ring-Airy beam can self-focus into intense light bullets that propagate over extended distances. These well-defined, high-intensity optical wavepackets could have applications in a variety of areas, such as laser micromachining and harmonic generation.center_img Explore further Researchers discover a way to generate an electron Airy beam Compared to two types of Gaussian beams (EEGB and ECGB), the ring-Airy wavepacket has a more precisely focused shape, appearing as a ‘light bullet.’ The wavepacket shapes are shown at different distances as the beams propagate from left to right.

first_imgGoogle Backup and Sync is here: let’s take a look by Martin Brinkmann on July 13, 2017 in Companies, Google – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 32 commentsGoogle Backup and Sync is a new program by Google that combines Google Photos and Google Drive functionality in a single client application.The new client replaces the old clients that Google provided for these tasks. Downloads are available on Google Drive and Google Photos; I could not get the download to start on Google Drive, but the download started fine on Google Photos.The new Google Backup and Sync is available for Windows and Mac operating systems only at this point in time. It seems that it is not available for mobile devices yet, as Google is still advertising its Google Photos application for mobile devices on the Photos download page.Google Backup and SyncYou are asked to sign in to a Google Account after installation. This is a straightforward process; you enter your username, then the Google account password, and if enabled, the two-factor authentication code on top of that.Note that the new application is not intended for Google Suite users. These will have access to Drive File Stream at a later point in time.Google Backup and Sync prompts you for making a choice in regards to backups. You can select to back up photos and videos only, or all files (in selected folders).Once you have made that initial decision, you are asked to make additional selections on the next (and final setup) screen.The first lets you select the folders on the computer that you want synchronized to Google Drive. Desktop,Documents and Pictures are selected by default. You may uncheck any of those, and add custom folders to the backup process as well.The second option has been taken directly from Google Photos. You are asked to select a quality level for uploaded images. The default is “high quality” which does not count against the storage quota of the account. You may switch that to original quality, which may count against the quota but ensures that photos are uploaded in their original resolution and not modified by Google in the process.A click on the “advanced settings” link opens an option to sync “My Drive” to this computer. This synchronizes the data on Google Drive with the computer in question. Note that this option is not selected by default, and needs to be checked.Google will compare files on the device with those online, and start the sync process right after you hit the start button on the last setup page.PreferencesGoogle Backup and Sync ships with additional preferences that become available after the initial sync is underway.You may change the preferences that were presented to you during setup, and the following ones:Select how items are deleted. You have three options:Don’t remove items everywhere — The default option keeps files on Google Drive if you delete them on the computer.Remove items everywhere — When you delete items on your computer, or on Google Drive, files in other sync locations get deleted as well.Ask me before removing items everywhere — You are prompted whenevery ou delete something on the computer.Upload newly added photos and videos to Google Photos.Open Backup and Sync on system startup.Show file sync status icons and right-click menu.Show warning when I remove items from a shared folder.Network SettingsProxy: auto-detect or direct connection.Limit download or upload rate.Allow back ups of camera or phones connected to the device.RestrictionsGoogle Backup and Sync won’t sync the following photos or videos (for use with google Photos):Videos larger than 10 Gigabytes in size.Photos larger than 75 MB or 100 MP.Items that are smaller than 256x256Photo file extensions other than: .jpg, .png, .webp and some RAW files.Video file extensions other than: .mpg, .mod, .mmv, .tod, .wmv, .asf, .avi, .divx, .mov, .m4v, .3gp, .3g2, .mp4, .m2t, .m2ts, .mts, and .mkv files.Closing WordsGoogle Backup and Sync combines Google Photos and Google Drive sync functionality in a single client.

first_imgThe long-anticipated arrival of MS Bremen cruise came to an end on the 1st November 2018 when Bikati Island (pronounced Big Arse) on Butaritari Atoll witnessed and experienced their very first cruise ship reception. The islanders were very curious at the same time excited to see the cruise ship and the 131 visitors landing on their shore.The vessel landed at around 9am, greeted with the sounds of conch shells and friendly greetings from the Chief, Mayor of Butaritari, people and children who all stood by the shore to greet each of the passengers and crew as they came ashore on the beach. Fresh green coconut refreshments were also distributed to the cruise passengers to taste the water of the land.The cruise visitors were entertained with a brief formal program – welcome speech, local dancing and garlanding. After the formal program, the cruise passengers were free to roam the island. Paths to the beaches, village, primary school and toilets were all designated and marked to help the visitors find their way on the island.The visitors enjoyed their time on the island engaging in swimming & sunbathing, canoe riding, touring the village, meeting the locals, buying souvenirs and observing local activities and entertainment. The locals were also very happy making extra income in U.S Dollars from selling handicraft & souvenirs, entertainment and tour activities.A Tourism officer from the KNTO was also present at the scene to oversee preparations prior to the cruise visit. The Tourism Officer also managed to meet with the Cruise Expedition leader Mr. Thomas Schubert. Mr. Schubert commented that the passengers were very pleased with the warm reception, setup and the preparation efforts that had been put in place to receive passengers of cruise ship Bremen. He also commented that Bikati was very beautiful and clean. With his words of appreciation, he further mentioned that the cruise will again visit Bikati Island in 2020 and they will come with a bigger cruise ship with more than 200 passengers.Both the Councillor and Chairman mentioned that the people of Bikati were very happy to receive their first cruise ship. Through the various comments and recommendations gathered from the passengers and crew, the villagers will improve their surroundings and environment to provide a more authentic and memorable experience to the visitors.The KNTO and the Shipping Agencies of Kiribati (SAOK) have been liaising with foreign cruise line companies and will do their best to attract more cruises in the future to help improve tourism in Kiribati.[Source; Te Kaongoa/Kiribati NTO]The post Cruise Ship MS Bremen calls at Bikati Island on Butaritari 1st November 2018.

first_imgA new study released earlier this month by the Australian Government-funded Market Development Facility (MDF) provides the first-ever independent economic assessment of Fiji’s yachting industry and the important economic contribution it makes to the Fijian economy.In a partnership with Fiji’s leading marinas, Port Denarau and Vuda, MDF commissioned an international consultancy firm, AMSTEC Pty Ltd, to carry out the independent assessment.The study highlighted that in 2018, the yachting sector generated FJD61 Million. With its modest visitor arrivals at 4,473 arriving on an estimated 721 visiting yachts, it is one of highest yielding tourism segments with an annual average spend for each visitor per trip of FJD7,808, more than three-times the national average of FJD2,067 quoted in the Fijian Tourism 2021 Plan.An estimated 54 superyachts arrived into Fiji in 2018 generating an average spend of FJD167,000 per vessel and an annual overall contribution of FJD9 Million. The economic contribution by the sector is even more pronounced as yachts sail to many remote islands and communities within the Fiji group that tourists do not normally travel to and also tend to spend more on locally sourced food, supplies and repairs compared to normal tourists spending.The report quotes that FJD35 million of foreign exchange was spent directly into Fijian businesses for fuel, maintenance, dockage, food provisioning, restaurants and bars, cultural visits and a range of other tourism activities.A national tourism stakeholder consultation was held in Nadi in November to discuss the preliminary findings in the draft report. Positive feedback was received from attendees which included executives from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Tourism Fiji, South Pacific Tourism Organisation (SPTO), Fiji Bureau of Statistics, Office of the Prime Minister, Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority, and key private sector companies in the yachting sector.According to Matthew Stoeckel, Chief Executive Officer of Tourism Fiji, “the preliminary findings are very insightful, and the economic contribution of the yachting sector is impressive. The report shifts the rhetoric from visitor arrival numbers to the importance of tourist yield associated with the market.”SPTO’s Chief Executive Officer, Chris Cocker, highlighted that “yachting is a high-yield low impact niche tourism segment that is not only good for Fiji but the Pacific, as they sail through the Pacific they bring economic benefits to multiple countries and directly to communities, so this type of tourism should also be supported by regional organisations and development partners.”In recognition of the importance of the study, Cynthia Rasch, General Manager, Port Denarau, said the Marina was delighted to partner with MDF to carry out an independent study. “The yachting industry plays a vital role to the growth of Fiji’s economy and this study will indicate their measurable economic, employment, social and environmental contributions to the local communities.”Adam Wade, General Manager, Vuda Marina echoed Rasch’s comments, “Many people are unaware of the diverse nature of the yachting industry and how there are numerous businesses that have been created organically to meet the needs of this vibrant and emerging community of adventurous travelers.”John Feakes, Australian High Commissioner to Fiji, said that the Australian Government, through MDF, was pleased to be able to support relevant and evidence-based research that should help all tourism yachting stakeholders to grow this important tourism market. He added further “In Australia, yachting tourism brings very tangible benefits to remote communities in Australia that have limited tourism infrastructure and would otherwise not be able to benefit from this growing industry. This report clearly shows that there’s already a vibrant and established yachting market in Fiji but much more can be done to truly harness its full potential.”MDF Fiji Country Director Mujaddid Mohsin said “MDF is pleased to partner with Fiji’s two largest Marinas in producing the yachting study to support more evidence-based policy dialogue and encourage new industry growth initiatives by local stakeholders.”Market Development Facility (MDF)The Market Development Facility (MDF) is a multi-country private sector development program funded by the Australian Government, operating in Fiji, Timor-Leste, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Papua New Guinea.MDF partners with a range of businesses in Fiji to stimulate investment, business innovation and regulatory reform to benefit people involved in Fiji’s tourism, export processing and horticulture industries, particularly the poor. In Fiji, MDF-supported activities will create 650 new jobs and increase incomes for 16,320 men, women by 2021.For further information contact:Talei Tora, Communications Specialist, Market Development Facility (Email: Talei.Tora-MDF@thepalladiumgroup.com, Telephone: 310 0272 / 7772 063The post Yachting Study for Fiji appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

first_imgAir Niugini Limited aims to raise K80 million this year under its higher altitude transformation program.Air Niugini managing director Alan Milne said this during a meeting with business houses in Lae yesterday.Mr Milne said 2018 was a tough year for Air Niugini and this has resulted in a substantial loss made by the airline company.However, he said the company has been restructured with focus on the higher altitude transformation program. This has produced overwhelming outcomes.“We were able to save K20 million in three months because of cost control, revenue enhancement, focusing on developing our people including operational and customer excellence,” Mr Milne said.He said some of the measures Air Niugini is taking to improve its business by rationalising of non-profit routes, expanding code share agreements with key partners and focusing on East West strategy and hub at Jacksons Airport.Mr Milne said Air Niugini services the national and international routes so they want to improve from being a good airline to a great airline and implementing strategies aimed in the higher altitude transformation program of improving customer service and time performance.“The business outlook for our airline company for 2019 is good as we experienced more staff engagement and a strict management of cash flow has resulted in the reduction in expense. Plus we are seeing steady revenue generation,” he said.Mr Milne further appealed to support the company by frequent flying with them to improve ticket sales including branding and image support for PNG’s only airline servicing the national and international flight routes.The post Air Niugini aims for K80m under higher altitude program appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

first_imgSupermarket giant Lidl said on Wednesday that in the past year alone, the chain had contributed directly and indirectly to 1,460 jobs, partnered with 280 suppliers and added €84.5 million to the Cypriot economy.Lidli revealed the numbers during a presentation of its first socio-economic study. It also announced that it would be soon opening its 17th store to be located in Mouttayiaka, Limassol. It is also working on substantially extending its central warehouse in Dromoloxia with the aim of controlling the quality of products which need to be kept in a cool environment.The socio-economic study which was carried out with the support of Ernest & Young Greece covered the period March 2015 until end of February 2016.According to the study, the direct and indirect contribution to the job market during this period was 1,460 jobs which is 0.4 per cent of total employment. Of those, 446 were directly employed by the chain.The company added €84.5 million corresponding to 0.5 per cent of GDP in Cyprus.Lidl locally partnered with 280 suppliers with overall purchases reaching a total of €47.3 million, €32.8 million of which were for retail market products.It also left a footprint for social initiatives worth more than €50,000, it said. During the past six years, Lidl has supported gifted children, the anti-cancer society, foodbanks and others.Chairman of the board Iacovos Andreanides who was at the presentation said Lidl pledges to continue to strive to support the local market and create new job openings.All the meat, a large amount of fruits, vegetables and dairy products is local, he said, adding that another 20 new Cypriot products will shortly be added.The chain also supports the environment, as customers have to pay for plastic bags. On Environment Day they offered free canvas bags which were introduced by the German-based chain to Cyprus.More information can be found at:www.lidl.com.cywww.facebook.com/lidlcy/www.youtube.com/user/lidlcypruswww.twitter.com/Lidl_Cyprus_www.instagram.com/lidl_cyprus/https://www.linkedin.com/company/lidl-cyprus You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

first_imgDisy chairman Averof Neofytou said that his party is planning to submit a proposal to set up a fund to compensate depositors and investors who lost money in the 2013 banking crisis.Neofytou, who was commenting on state radio CyBC on Monday, hours before a scheduled meeting of the finance committee of the parliament, said that the fund would provide compensation to depositors, bondholders and shareholders who are contributing to the social insurance fund.While the constitution does not allow the parliament to allocate funds, it can set up the legislative framework so that the executive branch can provide funds required to compensate groups when economic growth and budget surpluses allow this to happen, he said. He also rejected that the proposal is serving political expediencies ahead of next year’s presidential elections.While total losses of investors and depositors in the crisis amount at €9.5bn, the fund would distribute up to €0.5bn, he said.“All people contributed to fiscal consolidation,” Neofytou who also chairs the House finance committee said. “For the consolidation of banks, only a portion of our people paid a heavy price”.He added that the ones burdened the most were those who had bonds issued by Cyprus Popular Bank, widely known as Laiki, or its depositors who lost all their uninsured deposits, followed by depositors and bondholders at Bank of Cyprus “and the shareholders,” he said.The intention to set up this type of compensation fund was met with mixed reaction. The proposal was included in Monday’s agenda of the finance committee.The chairman of the Citizens’ Alliance and presidential candidate Yiorgos Lillikas who jointly submitted the proposal to the parliament, said that the establishment of the compensation fund will lift “this social injustice”.On the other hand, Alexandros Apostolides, who teaches economics at the Nicosia-based European University of Cyprus, threatened that he would resort to the courts should the parliament pass such a law.“By legislating this way, the parliament would interfere in pending court cases while the resolution of Laiki is not completed yet,” he said in a telephone interview on Monday. He also added that this entailed a moral hazard as it would encourage risky investment and it would create a precedent for the taxpayer having to foot the bill for the losses of private investors.Neofytou said that a solidarity fund set up months after the banking crisis attracted only one contributor who happened to be a Cypriot pensioner who emigrated to Canada.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades on Monday angrily dismissed any connection with a planned construction of a luxury resort in Pera Pedi in Troodos, part of which will sit on land he reported in his capital statement last May as having inherited from his mother.According to local daily Haravgi, the development, for which Parnitha Developments Ltd has obtained a permit, is being opposed by the environmental-impact assessment committee on environmental grounds.“Given that the negative impact of the proposed project on the local bio-diversity, landscape and flora will be substantial, one alternative would be to identify another area suitable for the proposed development without substantial impact on the local environment,” the committee opined.“Otherwise, the committee in the first instance maintains serious concerns regarding the proposed development, seriously considering the environmental and ecological data of this particular area.”The development will be built on an expanse totaling almost 200,000 square metres, of which construction will cover more than 24,000 square metres, including a hotel, a spa, five villas, a church, and a stable to host up to eight horses.Preliminary estimates said that the development would require 2,114 trees to be felled, while subsequent figures increased the number to over 3,000. The developers said they planned to plant 1,800 new trees to compensate.However, Haravgi said, a plot of land in Pera Pedi, which Anastasiades had reported 1/12th ownership of in his May capital statement, appears to be part of the development, raising questions about the president’s involvement in the project.“Those who believe they can hurt me by claiming that the development will be built in my plot will be disappointed,” Anastasiades said on Monday.“I owned 1/12th and the rest of the shares were bought by the developers. I will make the details public, but not before those who make these claims have ridiculed themselves before the people of Cyprus.”Still, he explained, “those who bought the land left me with a ditch on which one can’t even build a hut”.“Therefore, in my space there could not be any development,” he said.Haravgi also claimed that the development received permits suspiciously quickly.“The same paper that claims such haste in issuing the permit also reports that the preliminary views are completely negative,” Anastasiades said.“Based on what I was left with, the buyers have usurped one donum from the property I own. From this it is quite obvious that not only was I not involved, but also that, had I been, the preliminary remarks should have been positive.”In a statement on Sunday, Anastasiades denied he had anything to do with the planned luxury resort and attacked those peddling the story for electoral gains.“The campaign must be fought within the bounds of political civility and decency, as befitting a European democratic country,” the statement said.“Practices and tactics of bygone eras will be condemned by the voters themselves and will hurt only those who employ them.”The statement also singled out the Greens’ leader Giorgos Perdikis, who had been quick to run with Haravgi’s report in public remarks.“We are truly sorry that a political leader, Mr Giorgos Perdikis, serving purely electoral expediencies, hastened to unquestioningly adopt the false information published by a newspaper,” the president’s statement said.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
