Those acts could have risked execution in the hardline communist country

Robert Park, 28, wept as he left the flight from Beijing Saturday evening and met with his family, his brother said.

“Hugging him, there didn’t seem to be anything broken,” said Paul Park, who said he was speechless when he spotted his brother walking off the plane.

The greeting took place in a private location but the family spoke to reporters briefly as they left the airport. A thin and pale Park – who flew from Pyongyang to Beijing after North Korea announced Friday he would be freed – would not speak and kept his eyes downcast while Paul Park told reporters his brother is in good condition.

Robert Park, of Tucson, Arizona, crossed the frozen Tumen River from China into North Korea on Dec. 25, carrying letters calling on leader Kim Jong Il to close the country’s notoriously brutal prison camps and step down from power. Those acts could have risked execution in the hardline communist country.

The family did not know Robert Park had planned to cross into North Korea until about 14 hours before he did it, Paul Park said. He said they were informed of the plan during an international phone call. He didn’t specify any further.

“I have to admit, I didn’t believe it until I saw it on the international news,” Paul Park said of his brother’s crossing into North Korea. “To say that the family wasn’t prepared would be putting it mildly.”

The family didn’t have time during their brief airport reunion to ask whether he had been mistreated by North Korean officials, Paul Park said. They also didn’t get a chance to ask him about a statement that North Korea attributed to him on Friday, 부산 마사지 he said.

North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency quoted Park as saying he was ashamed of the “biased” view he once held of the country.

Robert Park said he was now convinced “there’s complete religious freedom for all people everywhere” in North Korea, citing the return of the Bible he carried as he entered the country and a service he attended at Pongsu Church in Pyongyang, KCNA said.

“I would not have committed such crime if I had known that the (North) respects the rights of all the people and guarantees their freedom and they enjoy a happy and stable life,” it quoted him as saying.

Robert Park didn’t respond to questions from reporters when he arrived in Beijing about whether he had been speaking freely or under duress.

North Korea’s constitution guarantees freedom of religion but the government severely restricts religious observance, only allowing worship – primarily by foreigners – at sanctioned churches. Defectors say underground worship and the distribution of Bibles can mean banishment to a labor camp or execution.

KCNA said Park told the news agency he had felt compelled to go to North Korea to draw attention to reported rights abuses and mass killings, even if it meant risking his life.

North Korea is regarded as having one of the world’s worst human rights records, with some 154,000 political prisoners held in six camps across the country, according to the South Korean government.

“We finally can relax,” said the Rev. John Benson, a pastor in Tucson, who ordained Park as a missionary. “We still had a little bit of reservation while he was still in North Korea. There was always a chance that they could change their mind.”

The family planned to feed him spaghetti for dinner – his favorite meal growing up.

“Right now, the biggest thing is, we love him and we’re excited to have him back,” Paul Park said. “And I’m really excited because I got to make probably the biggest of my New Year’s resolutions, which was to get him back home and give him a hug.”

This was the second time in less than a year that an American has been held by North Korea, which doesn’t have diplomatic ties with the U.S. Two female journalists were released in August with former President Bill Clinton’s help after they were arrested at the border and sentenced to prison.

Last month, North Korea notified the U.S. that it has yet another American in custody for allegedly entering the country illegally.

A court-ordered Special Master later determined that federal agents could review the vast majority of nearly 300,000 files on the two phones, as well as an iPad obtained in the search

The problem: Cohen and his family had moved into a hotel while renovating their apartment.

The solution, on April 8, 2018, was to use a controversial surveillance technology to determine his exact location: Room 1728 at the Loews Regency Hotel.

An FBI special agent wrote in an affidavit unsealed Tuesday that federal agents “sought and obtained authority to employ an electronic technique, commonly known as ‘triggerfish,’ to determine the locations” of Cohen’s two iPhones.

Federal agents later obtained a warrant to retrieve the phones from the room. A court-ordered Special Master later determined that federal agents could review the vast majority of nearly 300,000 files on the two phones, as well as an iPad obtained in the search.

Triggerfish devices — often referred to as Stingrays — mimic cellphone towers, allowing them to pinpoint a phone’s location, sometimes even before it makes a call or text.

It is not clear exactly what information other than location that law enforcement gleaned from its use of a Stingray targeting Cohen. The devices also capable of collecting the calls, text messages and even the emails sent to and from phones.

And because they act as cell towers, they don’t just collect information from the targets of investigations. Stingrays are capable of taking in information from entire neighborhoods, which is why civil liberties groups have for years objected to their use.

The devices are made by defense contractor Harris Corporation, and its patents indicate Stingrays and similar devices have been used for about two decades, though law enforcement rarely acknowledges their use.

The government has even withdrawn charges against criminal defendants rather than turning over information to defense teams about the Stingray, according to a 2017 policy analysis by the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank.

As a result, it’s not clear just how widespread use of the devices is. In a November 2018 report, the ACLU cataloged Stingray use by 75 agencies in 27 states and the District of Columbia, but that list is almost certainly incomplete. The ACLU found 14 federal agencies that use the devices, but does not currently include one identified by CBS News: the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

In response to a 2016 Freedom of Information Act request filed by CBS News, the agency wrote it could not “disclose techniques and procedures for law enforcement investigation and prosecutions.”

The national identity debates often focused on France’s growing immigrant population, and racist comments occasionally popped up on the interactive Immigration Ministry Web site dedicated to the debate, though were quickly removed

Immigration Minister Eric Besson, who initiated the debate, submitted proposals based on the 350 local meetings held around France since early November.

It was not clear whether any firm steps would be taken after the government meeting. Besson said Friday that several concrete measures on better integrating immigrants can be expected, and that his proposed initiatives also concern fighting discrimination and building a European identity.

French newspapers reported that among the proposals being discussed Monday are a special oath for new French citizens and a “young citizen’s card” for schoolchildren.

The national identity debates often focused on France’s growing immigrant population, and racist comments occasionally popped up on the interactive Immigration Ministry Web site dedicated to the debate, though were quickly removed.

The debate has divided public opinion in France, 청주 마사지 with some critics claiming it was a ploy by the governing conservative party for more extreme right votes before March regional elections. Numerous intellectuals have opposed it and, minus a few exceptions, the rival Socialist party refused to participate.

The meetings in towns and cities around France coincided with a debate on whether to ban the face-covering Muslim veil, a subject that overlaps with immigration issues.

Prime Minister Francois Fillon has said the national discussion on France’s identity was “perfectly necessary” and now wants the full government to weigh in on the results.

“Every minister must say what he thinks of the debate and what he thinks of the proposals,” Fillon said last week on Europe-1 radio. They will be called on to “select those which merit being put into place and which justify rules or laws,” he said.

A poll published Feb. 1 by Obea-Infraforces showed that more than one French in two were critical of the debate and nearly 62 percent said it did not help them “define what it is to be French.”

However, Besson justified the debate with another poll, conducted for the Immigration Ministry and made public Friday, that showed that 74 percent of those polled think France’s national identity is weakening, with 30 percent attributing that to immigration and 18 percent to cultural and ethnic issues.

While 75 percent of those polled for the ministry said they were proud or very proud of being French, a full 25 percent were not particularly proud.

The poll for the ministry by the TNS-Sofres firm consulted 1,000 people, the same number as in the previous poll. Margins of error were not provided but in a poll of that size it would be plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Besson wants to continue the debate, perhaps in a different form, through the end of the year.

“It’s wonderful, it’s a great opportunity to have some fun.” Goldberg said she is looking forward to the hot topics segment the most

“I am in the moderator’s chair,” Goldberg said as she sat in O’Donnell’s former post.

After the women embraced each other, Goldberg told Walters she’d watched the show once or twice. “I love hanging out with you guys,” she said. “It’s wonderful, it’s a great opportunity to have some fun.”

Goldberg said she is looking forward to the hot topics segment the most. And the least? “Trying to get in between all everyone talking at one time,” she said.

The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Goldberg and frequent guest host Sherri Shepherd were in final negotiations to join the show. A source tells The ShowBuzz that the show was interested in working with Shepherd but an agreement could not be reached.

Goldberg, 51, gives “View” creator 부천 마사지 Barbara Walters a big name to replace O’Donnell, who quit the show in May.

In less than a year on the show, the brash O’Donnell was a never-ending source of headlines for her feuds with Donald Trump and co-star Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Despite the near-constant need for damage control, ratings shot up.

Goldberg is one of the few performers to earn Emmy, Grammy, Tony and Academy awards in her versatile career.

Lavoe rose to fame during the 1970s, while Anthony was growing up in a New York City brimming with the rhythms of salsa’s golden age

Lavoe rose to fame during the 1970s, while Anthony was growing up in a New York City brimming with the rhythms of salsa’s golden age.

Anthony, 부산 마사지 who went on to become the greatest salsa singer of his generation, released his first album, “Otra Nota,” in January of 1993.

Six months later, Hector Lavoe was dead.

The coincidence had never dawned on Anthony until it was suggested to him in a question during an interview with Judy Faber of The ShowBuzz Wednesday.

“I remember that year being a milestone year for me,” he said. “I remember when he passed, and I went to his funeral. After the funeral, as I was walking out, people were yelling that it was up to me now, it was up to me.”

The experience of transforming himself into Lavoe for the movie was emotional, not just for Anthony but also for the people around him.

They also celebrated Lopez’s birthday.

“We woke up in Puerto Rico and ended up in New York and just surrounded ourselves with family. It was a pure family day. We had a great time,” he said.

Anthony wouldn’t reveal what he got his wife of three years for her birthday. But, he did offer up some advice for couples who work together.

“Just know what it is you’re stepping into. Avoid the pitfalls. Don’t make it your life, don’t take it home,” he said.

“El Cantante” opens Friday, Aug. 3.

Early visitors to the observation deck had to peer through floor-to-ceiling windows caked with dust – a sign that cleaning crews had not yet had a chance to scrub them clean

Photos: World’s Tallest Building Opens

Electrical problems are at least partly to blame for the closure of the Burj Khalifa’s viewing platform – the only part of the half-mile high tower open yet. But a lack of information from the spire’s owner left it unclear whether the rest of the largely empty building – including dozens of elevators meant to whisk visitors to the tower’s more than 160 floors – was affected by the shutdown.

The indefinite closure, which began Sunday, comes as Dubai struggles to revive its international image as a cutting-edge Arab metropolis amid nagging questions about its financial health.

The Persian Gulf city-state had hoped the 2,717-foot (828-meter) Burj Khalifa would be a major tourist draw. Dubai has promoted itself by wowing visitors with over-the-top attractions such as the Burj, which juts like a silvery needle out of the desert and can be seen from miles around.

In recent weeks, thousands of tourists have lined up for the chance to buy tickets for viewing times often days in advance that cost more than $27 apiece. Now many of those would-be visitors, 대구 안마 such as Wayne Boyes, a tourist from near Manchester, England, must get back in line for refunds.

“It’s just very disappointing,” said Boyes, 40, who showed up at the Burj’s entrance Monday with a ticket for an afternoon time slot only to be told the viewing platform was closed. “The tower was one of my main reasons for coming here,” he said.

The precise cause of the $1.5 billion Dubai skyscraper’s temporary shutdown remained unclear.

In a brief statement responding to questions, building owner Emaar Properties blamed the closure on “unexpected high traffic,” but then suggested that electrical problems were also at fault.

“Technical issues with the power supply are being worked on by the main and subcontractors and the public will be informed upon completion,” the company said, adding that it is “committed to the highest quality standards at Burj Khalifa.”

Power was reaching some parts of the building. Strobe lights warning aircraft flashed and a handful of floors were illuminated after nightfall.

Emaar did not say when the observation deck would reopen. Ticket sales agents were accepting bookings starting on Valentine’s Day this Sunday, though one reached by The Associated Press could not confirm the building would reopen then.

Tourists affected by the closure are being offered the chance to rebook or receive refunds.

The shutdown comes at a sensitive time for Dubai. The city-state is facing a slump in tourism – which accounts for nearly a fifth of the local economy – while fending off negative publicity caused by more than $80 billion in debt it is struggling to repay.

Ervin Hladnik-Milharcic, 55, a Slovenian writer planning to visit the city for the first time this month, said he hoped the Burj would reopen soon.

“It was the one thing I really wanted to see,” he said. “The tower was projected as a metaphor for Dubai. So the metaphor should work. There are no excuses.”

Dubai opened the skyscraper on Jan. 4 in a blaze of fireworks televised around the world. The building had been known as the Burj Dubai during more than half a decade of construction, but the name was suddenly changed on opening night to honor the ruler of neighboring Abu Dhabi.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are two of seven small sheikdoms that comprise the United Arab Emirates. Abu Dhabi hosts the federation’s capital and holds most of the country’s vast oil reserves. It has provided Dubai with $20 billion in emergency cash to help cover its debts.

Questions were raised about the building’s readiness in the months leading up to the January opening.

The opening date had originally been expected in September, but was then pushed back until sometime before the end of 2009. The eventual opening date just after New Year’s was meant to coincide with the anniversary of the Dubai ruler’s ascent to power.

There were signs even that target was ambitious. The final metal and glass panels cladding the building’s exterior were installed only in late September. Early visitors to the observation deck had to peer through floor-to-ceiling windows caked with dust – a sign that cleaning crews had not yet had a chance to scrub them clean.

Work is still ongoing on many of the building’s other floors, including those that will house the first hotel designed by Giorgio Armani that is due to open in March. The building’s base remains largely a construction zone, with entrance restricted to the viewing platform lobby in an adjacent shopping mall.

The first of some 12,000 residential tenants and office workers are supposed to move in to the building this month.

The Burj Khalifa boasts more than 160 stories. The exact number is not known.

The observation deck, which is mostly enclosed but includes an outdoor terrace bordered by guard rails, is located about two-thirds of the way up on the 124th floor. Adult tickets bought in advance cost 100 dirhams, or about $27. Visitors wanting to enter immediately can jump to the front of the line by paying 400 dirhams – about $110 apiece.

Simpson will portray his youthful competitor, Philo T

The creator of television’s “The West Wing” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” will return to Broadway this fall with “The Farnsworth Invention,” his new play about the birth of television.

2-606=15The production, starring Hank Azaria and Jimmi Simpson, will open Nov. 14 at the Music Box Theatre, its producers, Dodger Properties, announced Wednesday. Preview performances begin Oct. 15. Des McAnuff will direct.

“The Farnsworth Invention” deals with the invention of television and the battle between a young inventor and David Sarnoff, head of the Radio Corporation of America. Azaria will play Sarnoff. Simpson will portray his youthful competitor, Philo T. Farnsworth.

Sorkin’s last Broadway play was “A Few Good Men,” starring Tom Hulce and Stephen Lang, in 1989. Azaria was recently seen on Broadway in “Monty Python’s Spamalot.” McAnuff, 천안 안마 director of the Tony-winning “Jersey Boys,” has run California’s La Jolla Playhouse, and, beginning with the 2008 season, will be one of three artistic directors at the Stratford Festival of Canada. He will direct “Romeo and Juliet” there next summer.

The avalanche slammed into the army’s High Altitude Warfare School at about 11 a.m. and swept away the soldiers during a training session, said army spokesman Col. Vineet Sood. It was the worst avalanche in the area in many years, he said.

Seventeen bodies were found and 53 troops were rescued about six hours after the speeding mass of snow and ice struck the centre high on a Himalayan slope, senior police officer Qayoom Manhas told The Associated Press.

Manhas said of those rescued, 17 needed emergency medical care.

About 70 troops were taking a skiing test when the avalanche came crashing down, he said.

Rescue efforts involving army, police and civilian officials were “very timely, swift and coordinated,” Manhas said.

The accident occurred near Gulmarg, a ski resort about 30 miles northwest of Srinagar, the main city in Indian Kashmir, said Sood.

About 400 people, including 30 civilian workers, were at the training centre, but the avalanche hit only one portion of the facility.

Incessant snow and rain complicated rescue operations.

G.M. Dar, a tourist official in the area, told the AP about 400 tourists skiing in Gulmarg were safe.

Frequent rain and heavy snowfall often trigger avalanches and landslides in Kashmir, blocking roads and cutting off tourist resorts like Gulmarg. Gulmarg is also close to the Line of Control, 부산 마사지 a highly militarized cease-fire line dividing the Himalayan region of Kashmir between India and Pakistan.

The claim over Kashmir has caused two wars between the archrivals since they became independent from Britain in 1947. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers are posted along either side of the Line of Control.

Last year in April, an avalanche hit an Indian army post in a separate region close to the de-facto border with Pakistan, killing seven soldiers and injuring at least eight others.
