As the election approached, Yanukovych, awkward when speaking in public, tread carefully, sticking mostly with photo opportunities and bland statements to try to hang onto his lead

Yanukovych went ahead and declared victory, but his opponent Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, a leader of Orange forces, rejected the exit poll data and said Sunday’s race was too close to call.

“It is too soon to draw any conclusions,” she said, urging supporters to fight for every ballot.

Ukraine’s Central Election Commission reported early Monday that opposition leader Yanukovych was leading Tymoshenko by 51.3 percent to 43.3 percent with 27.4 percent of the vote counted.

The National Election Poll exit survey predicted that after the count, Yanukovych would capture 48.5 percent of the vote to 45.7 percent for Tymoshenko, with other voters mostly choosing “Against all.” The 2.8 percentage point gap is only slightly larger than the NEP’s margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent.

The NEP poll initially showed Yanukovych with a 3.2 percentage point lead, but the later released revised figures. All other major exit polls had Yanukovych winning, some by larger margins.

The race narrowed sharply from the first round vote on Jan. 17, when Yanukovych held a 10 percent lead.

At the Yanukovych camp, top party officials broke into rapturous applause as they heard the exit polls announced, and Anna German, deputy head of Yanukovych’s Party of Regions, called on Tymoshenko to concede.

“The first rule for a true democrat is to accept defeat when that is the will of the people,” she said. “It is now Yulia Tymoshenko’s responsibility to do that.”

Tymoshenko has vowed to challenge a vote she claims was rigged by in Yanukovych’s favor, as it was in the 2004 elections that set off the Orange Revolution. After weeks of demonstrations, a court threw out the results of that 2000 vote contest and Yanukovych lost a court-ordered revote to Orange forces

Tymoshenko’s campaign chief Alexander Turchinov insisted Sunday there was evidence of fraud. “Intrigue still remains in place, we remain certain,” he said.

But Matyas Eorsi, head of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s election observation mission, called the balloting “calm” and “professional” and said there was no evidence the vote had been stolen.

“We are 100 percent sure that this election was legitimate,” Eorsi said. “All the international community, and even more important, the Ukrainian public can accept this result.”

A preliminary report by international monitors is expected later Monday.

Mikhail Okhendovsky, a member of Ukraine’s Central Election Commission, said the board had no evidence of large scale falsification but expects that the loser will challenge the results in court anyway.

“In keeping with the traditions of Ukrainian elections, the loser never accepts defeat,” he said before the polls closed.

The Central Election Commission projected the turnout among Ukraine’s 37 million voters at about 70 percent, 3.2 percentage points higher than the Jan. 17 first-round vote in which 18 candidates competed.

Early figures showed a heavier turnout in Yanukovych’s strongholds in Ukraine’s Russian-speaking east than in Tymoshenko’s districts in the country’s Ukrainian-speaking west.

Tymoshenko’s impassioned leadership of the 2004 Orange protests made her an international celebrity, and she fought hard in recent weeks to rekindle the heady emotions those days. At one point she debated an empty lectern to dramatize her opponent’s refusal to debate her.

She sought to depict herself as a populist whose appeal crossed Ukraine’s east-west divide but she bore the scars of five years of political battles with Yanukovych and her sometime Orange ally, outgoing President Viktor Yushchenko, and has struggled to cope with Ukraine’s severe economic crisis.

Ukraine has been among the hardest-hit nations in the global credit crunch. Its currency crashed in 2008, wiping out almost half of people’s savings, and the International Monetary Fund had to step in with a $16.4 billion bailout. GDP plunged more than 14 percent in 2009 and the country is expected to have only anemic growth this year, according to the World Bank.

As the election approached, Yanukovych, awkward when speaking in public, tread carefully, sticking mostly with photo opportunities and bland statements to try to hang onto his lead.

He would not be drawn into a Russia-versus-West debate, and pledged to balance ties between Ukraine’s diverse neighbors.

“Ukraine will never be a friend with Russia at the expense of Europe, or Europe at the expense of Russia,” said Boris Kolesnikov, deputy leader of Yanukovych’s Party of Regions. “That will guide the foreign policy under the Yanukovych presidency.”

But Yanukovych represents the hopes of many Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine, who feel they have been relegated to second-class status behind the urban elite who favored the Orange reform forces.

Yanukovych supporters have been camped out in front of the Central Election Commission headquarters and other key points in Kiev in an apparent effort to prevent Tymoshenko supporters from staging mass demonstrations like those of the Orange revolt.

If Yanukovych wins, it will be an impressive reversal of fortune. During the 2004 protests, foes cast him as a Kremlin lackey. But he battled back, serving for 청주 마사지 a time as prime minister under his main Orange adversary, Yushchenko.

He gained ground as voters said they were weary of broken promises, a dysfunctional economy and political chaos under the Orange government.

Casting his ballot in Kiev, once an Orange bastion, Yanukovych said the election would mark the “first step in overcoming the crisis.”

“The people of Ukraine deserve a better life, so I voted for positive changes, stability and a strong Ukraine,” he said.

Tymoshenko voted in her hometown, the industrial center of Dnipropetrovsk, in Yanukovych’s stronghold of eastern Ukraine.

“I voted for a new Ukraine — a beautiful and European Ukraine — and for people to live happily. I will serve Ukraine with all my heart,” Tymoshenko said, standing next to her husband.

Sunday’s vote may shift the balance of power in Ukraine, but it will not heal the country’s deep divisions.

“I am voting against the return of our Soviet past,” 40-year-old businessman Vladimir Khivrenko said at a polling station near the Maidan, the central square in Kiev, the capital. “Tymoshenko has promised us a new path to Europe, and I believe her.”

Tatyana Volodaschuk, 60, said she was sick of political uncertainty.

“I want stability and order,” she said. “Yanukovych offers us the guarantee of a normal life.”

The singer was found not guilty of the DUI charge in July 2006 but guilty of driving on a suspended license

McCready, 31, was arrested last week in Fort Myers, Fla., her hometown, on misdemeanor charges that she scratched her mother on the face and then resisted sheriff’s deputies.

She was on probation for obtaining the painkiller OxyContin fraudulently at a pharmacy in 2004. Still pending was another probation violation charge resulting from a drunken driving arrest in May 2005.

Deputy District Attorney General Derek Smith told The Tennessean that she violated probation in three ways: by being charged in a new offense; not reporting those charges immediately to her probation officer; and 부산 안마 by the nature of the new assault charges.

The Williamson County Court Clerk said McCready’s previous attorney, Lee Dryer, had withdrawn as her lawyer. It was not yet known whether she had a new attorney.

McCready had a hit in 1996 with “Guys Do It All the Time.” Her album “Ten Thousand Angels” sold 2 million copies that year.

The singer was found not guilty of the DUI charge in July 2006 but guilty of driving on a suspended license. She then pleaded guilty to violating her probation but has petitioned to withdraw that plea.

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

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, 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, 대구 마사지 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.

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, 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 전주 마사지 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.

The devices also capable of collecting the calls, text messages and even the emails sent to and from phones

The FBI wanted Michael Cohen’s cellphones, but knew they couldn’t be found at his home. 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, 청주 마사지 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.”

His symptoms didn’t improve and he soon learned he had a rare infection called acanthamoeba keratitis — a serious condition caused by an amoeba.  Symptoms of acanthamoeba keratitis include: Doctors can diagnose the infection based on symptoms, or the amoeba can also be identified by a scraping of the eye or by viewing it through a process called confocal microscopy

A British man was forced to have his eye removed after a contact lens infection spiraled out of control, and now he’s sharing his story so others won’t suffer the same consequences.

Long-time paramedic Andrew Carthew, 59, wore prescription contact lenses for years and said he was always careful not to sleep or shower or swim with them in. But in June of 2015, he woke one morning with a “weepy eye,” the UK’s Daily Mail reported online. 

He thought it was conjunctivitis, a common, treatable eye infection.

But the eye became painful and sensitive to bright light within a day or two, Carthew said. He ended up in the emergency room. His symptoms didn’t improve and he soon learned he had a rare infection called acanthamoeba keratitis — a serious condition caused by an amoeba. 

Symptoms of acanthamoeba keratitis include:

Doctors can diagnose the infection based on symptoms, or the amoeba can also be identified by a scraping of the eye or by viewing it through a process called confocal microscopy.

The infection is treated with one or more prescription medications. In Carthew’s case, antibiotics did not help, so his doctors then performed a corneal transplant. But the infection was so severe they finally had no choice but to remove his eye.

After a year in and out of medical care and adjusting to the loss of the eye, UK news outlets are reporting that Carthew is now getting the word out to help other contact lens wearers avoid the same fate.

The parasite is common in nature, where it can be found in lakes and oceans, the soil and 부천 마사지 even air. It’s also present in tap water. About 85 percent of infections occur in people wearing contacts that got contaminated.

Normally, only about one to two cases of infection per million contact lens users occur in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But between 2005 and 2007, an acanthamoeba keratitis outbreak infected at least 138 people in 35 states.

About 41 million Americans wear contact lenses, and while they are typically a safe and effective alternative to glasses, they can cause serious problems if wearers don’t follow instructions on how to care for them.

“While patients, especially younger patients, are really excited about being fitted with contact lenses, I stress to them that contact lenses are medical devices that have to be properly fitted, evaluated and that they must adhere to proper contact lens care,” Dr. Andrea Thau of the American Optometric Association (AOA), told CBS News in August when a new CDC report came out warning contact lens users to be vigilant about eye care.

Here’s what to do to avoid infections and other vision complications, according to the AOA:

You can’t be careful enough, as Carthew learned. A health professional himself, he said he followed contact lens cleaning guidelines, but he said that it’s possible he handled his lenses with unwashed hands at some point, which might have led to his infection.

and its allies were “welcome to the mine fields” of Marjah, but that victory there would not defeat the radical Islamic movement

Aknond claimed between 1,000 and 1,500 Taliban fighters were laying wait in Marjah for the onslaught.

The commander said the U.S. and 부천 마사지 its allies were “welcome to the mine fields” of Marjah, but that victory there would not defeat the radical Islamic movement. “There are dozens of districts like Marjah,” he told CBS News.
