(AP Photo/Jens Meyer)HOCKENHEIM, Germany — Lewis Hamilton regained the Formula One championship lead in unexpected and dramatic fashion on Sunday, winning the German Grand Prix after race leader Sebastian Vettel crashed and then surviving an investigation into his own driving.Hamilton was summoned to speak to stewards to explain a move late in the race, where he went to the pits and then aborted his move. He escaped with a reprimand and so kept his win, his fourth this season and 66th overall.ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Trump assembles a made-for-TV impeachment defense team Putin’s, Xi’s ruler-for-life moves pose challenges to West Raikkonen was the first of the front-runners to change tires, on Lap 15, coming out just ahead of Hamilton.Losing speed, Hamilton changed tires on lap 43.When he came back out, the heavy rain started falling.Raikkonen lost position to Bottas, and Vettel lost control of the title race.Vettel needs to bounce back strongly at the Hungarian GP next weekend, or Hamilton will take the momentum into the summer break.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “It’s been the most emotional day, up and down. No one ever wants to go see the stewards because they have the hardest job,” a relieved Hamilton said. “I was just 100 percent open with them. They could see how confusing it was.”The incident came while the safety car was deployed following Vettel’s sudden crash.

No, (go) right!”When the race resumed, with about 10 laps left, Bottas almost overtook Hamilton.Shortly after, Bottas was firmly told on team radio to “hold position” and not challenge Hamilton.“Taking positives as a team, perfect result for us,” said Bottas, who added — seemingly half-heartedly — that he “understood” the call.

What do you want?” After another indirect message, Raikkonen added “So you want me to let him (past)? Please. Just tell me.”He eventually did, ending the Finnish driver’s hopes of a first win since the season-opening Australian GP in 2013.Asked about the instructions, Raikkonen said “it wasn’t clear, I had the speed.”Hamilton’s win moved him level with F1 great Michael Schumacher on four German GP wins.Vettel had won once before in Germany — at the Nuerburgring — but has never won at Hockenheim. He grew up less than 30 minutes away, in Heppenheim, and may never get a better chance amid doubts over future F1 races.The German GP turned the tables on Ferrari, which also conceded top spot to Mercedes in the constructors’ championship.Things started well, though, with Vettel getting away cleanly and setting fastest laps DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Report: Disney dropping the ‘Fox’ from movie studio names Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Earlier, heavy rain played havoc at the Hockenheimring as Vettel misjudged a basic entry into a turn and slid over the gravel into the barriers with 15 laps to go.The four-time Formula One champion started from pole position and seemed in control. He kicked the gravel in frustration as he stepped out his car.“I threw it away. It was my mistake,” Vettel said. “I was a tiny bit too late on the brakes, locked the rears and I couldn’t turn. It wasn’t the biggest mistake I’ve done, but one of the most costly ones.”His mishap opened the door wide open for Hamilton, who is 17 points clear of Vettel after trailing by eight beforehand.The British driver was fourth at the time of Vettel’s sudden lapse, having started from 14th on the grid because of a hydraulic problem in qualifying.ADVERTISEMENT

IT ought to go without saying that until Washington fixes the country’s broken immigration system, Washington – and not state and local governments – should bear the cost of jailing criminal illegal immigrants. Alas, on a good day, the feds only pick up one-third of that cost. And on most other days, it’s a lot less. That’s because the Justice Department has proven unwilling or unable to cut reimbursement checks to affected local governments. Currently, California is out $89.5 million, and Los Angeles County $12.5 million. This is inexcusable. If Washington can’t grapple with immigration, then it ought to at least pay for its failure – rather than passing the costs along.
The world denounced the assassination of Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, paying tribute Friday to a brave, if flawed, champion of democracy. International leaders appealed for calm and held their breath to see whether violence triggered by the killing would gather momentum or fizzle out. French President Nicolas Sarkozy urged President Pervez Musharraf to proceed with Jan. 8 parliamentary elections even though Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party has lost its charismatic leader. However other world leaders were more guarded on the question of whether the elections aimed at restoring democracy to Pakistan should now go ahead as planned. The United States – which had staked hopes for Pakistan’s stability on Bhutto-Musharraf reconciliation and encouraged Bhutto’s return from exile in October – was ambiguous. President Bush called on the Pakistani people “to honor Benazir Bhutto’s memory by continuing with the democratic process for which she so bravely gave her life.” Asked whether the United States was confident that Pakistan could stage an election in January, State Department spokesman Tom Casey said: “Well, we’re going to see what happens.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he had spoken to Musharraf and urged him to “stick to the course he has outlined to build democracy and stability in Pakistan” – though Brown did not specifically say elections should be held Jan. 8. “This was a cowardly terrorist act designed to destabilize democratic elections,” Brown said. “The international community is united in its outrage and determination that those who stoop to such tactics shall not prevail.” Pakistani Prime Minister Mohammedmian Soomro said the government had no immediate plans to postpone the vote, despite the growing chaos and a decision by Nawaz Sharif, another top opposition leader, to boycott the election. “Right now, the elections stand where they were,” he told a news conference. “We will consult all the political parties to take any decision about it.” The State Department issued a warning to Americans in Pakistan about safety concerns due to potential demonstrations and disruptions following the assassination. “All Americans are asked to keep a low profile and to avoid large gatherings during any declared mourning period,” the warning said. “The potential for sporadic violence and demonstrations is much higher during the period of mourning for former Prime Minister Bhutto, and Americans are asked to avoid funeral processions and large public gatherings.” Two U.S. lawmakers cut short their visit to Pakistan in the wake of the assassination. The State Department advised Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., and Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., to leave. They had been scheduled to meet Thursday with Bhutto and Musharraf. Britain’s Foreign Office warned citizens against all but essential travel to the country, as angry Bhutto supporters ransacked banks, waged shootouts with police and burned train stations in several cities. In Britain, home to a large Pakistani community, mosques planned to say prayers for Bhutto after regular Friday prayers. The United Nations Security Council summed up the world reaction by voting Thursday unanimously to condemn the killing and urge all nations to help bring those responsible for “this reprehensible act” to justice. Pope Benedict XVI condemned the assassination as a “brutal terrorist attack” and prayed that further violence would be avoided. In India, which has fought three wars against Pakistan, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Bhutto was irreplaceable. “In her death, the subcontinent has lost an outstanding leader who worked for democracy and reconciliation in her country,” Singh said. Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai, who met Bhutto earlier on Thursday in Islamabad, said he was “deeply pained” by the assassination of “this brave sister of ours, a brave daughter of the Muslim world.” Even Bhutto’s many critics acknowledged her bravery. “She had plenty of physical courage and refused to be cowed by threats from local opponents,” left-wing writer Tariq Ali, who knew Bhutto for several decades, wrote in the Guardian. Bhutto’s friends acknowledged that her legacy was mixed. She was a champion of democracy whose two terms as prime minister from 1988-1996 were overshadowed by allegations of corruption. She faced death threats from al-Qaida and was a U.S. ally in the “war on terror.” But her government supported the Taliban in Afghanistan in the 1990s. Bhutto was under investigation in Switzerland for allegations that she used Swiss banks to launder millions of dollars in kickbacks. The case was closed after her death but Bhutto’s husband, Asif Ali Zardari, is still under investigation there. In October, Musharraf quashed long-standing corruption cases against Bhutto that paved the way for her return to Pakistan that same month. “She had a lot of flaws,” journalist Christina Lamb, a friend of Bhutto, told the BBC. “She admitted some of them in the end,” she added. “Whatever her faults, I think she was the best hope for Pakistan.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Intoxication will play a major part in the defence of two Donegal tourists accused of murdering a 66-year-old Indigenous man in Sydney, a court has heard.Nathan Kelly, 22, and Christopher McLaughlin, 25, are alleged to have murdered Paul William Tavelardis in the inner-western suburb of Summer Hill between 9.30am and 9.50am on January 19, 2019. They had been charged with recklessly causing grievous bodily harm until Mr Tavelardis died in hospital on March 4 and their charges were upgraded.The pair appeared in the New South Wales Supreme Court on audio-visual link from a prison in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, both wearing button-up prison-green polo shirts.Neither entered a plea via their barrister, Margaret Cunneen.Justice Elizabeth Fullerton told Ms Cunneen that it was clear that “very, very severe intoxication by alcohol” was a factor in the alleged crime.Bradley Tavelardis said his father had battled leukaemia and heart issues in later years and wouldn’t have had the strength to defend himself.While the parents of the two accused men described the ordeal as a “nightmare”.The two men are due to appear in same court on February 14th 2020.Donegal men facing murder charge in Australia appear in court was last modified: December 6th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:chargeChristopher McLaughlinmurderNathan Kellysydney

Many GBA readers have built homes with 4 inches or 6 inches of rigid foam on the exterior side of their walls. Typically, these walls include vertical 1×4 furring strips, 16 inches or 24 inches on center, on the exterior side of the rigid foam. The furring strips perform at least three functions: they hold the foam in place, they create a rainscreen gap, and they provide something for the siding to be fastened to.If you look at the illustration at right, you’ll realize that there is no easy way to install a 1×4 furring strip at the exterior corner of a wall with thick rigid foam. Sure, you can attach a furring strip to the stud nearest the corner — but the rigid foam extends further, beyond the last furring strip.When it’s time to install vertical corner board trim, you realize that there isn’t anything at the corners to nail to. Oops. OSB or plywood to the rescue The solution is to plan ahead by installing wide strips of 3/4-inch-thick material (usually OSB or plywood). If your house has 4 inches of exterior rigid foam, then these strips should be 6 or 7 inches wide; if you have 6 inches of exterior rigid foam, these strips should be 8 or 9 inches wide. It’s also possible to use a 1×8 or a 1×10 board instead of OSB or plywood for this purpose. One of these strips (or a wide board) is screwed through the foam to the last stud on the wall, so that the strip extends all the way to the exterior corner. After the first one is installed, the corresponding strip on the intersecting wall is installed to overlap the first, and the two strips are fastened together at the corner with staples, brads, or thin screws.It’s also possible to… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.
