Godolphin still riding high at Ascot after shake-up of Sheikh’s team

• Chief executive quit two weeks ago after row with trainer Saeed bin Suroor• The team have had strong meeting so far, securing five winnersGodolphin’s success at this Royal Ascot suggests that suddenly parting with a chief executive can be a fruitful exercise rather than an obvious disaster. Only 16 days after John Ferguson felt he had no option but to quit, Sheikh Mohammed’s team have made five trips to the winner’s enclosure here this week, three more than Coolmore, their arch rivals who have dominated Flat racing for the past decade.

Michael Brown's Family Settles Wrongful-Death Lawsuit For Undisclosed Sum

Federal district judge Richard Webber approved the civil settlement on Tuesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Webber sealed details of the settlement and did not disclose the settlement amount. Brown’s parents, Michael Brown Sr. and Lezley McSpadden, filed the civil lawsuit against the city of Ferguson, former Police Chief Thomas Jackson and former police officer Darren Wilson in April 2015, nine months after Brown was killed. Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III and attorneys for Browns’ parents declined to comment on the settlement, according to the Associated Press. The lawsuit alleged that the city of Ferguson fostered a police culture that was hostile to African Americans, which ultimately led to Brown’s death in August 2014. The lawsuit also claims Wilson used excessive and unreasonable force during his confrontation with Brown. Wilson resigned from the Ferguson police force in November 2014, after a grand jury in St. Louis County announced he would not be indicted. In March 2015, Department of Justice officials announced that Wilson would not face federal civil rights charges in connection with Brown’s death. The incident sparked months of protests ― which at times turned violent ― in Ferguson and across the U.S.  Webber wrote in his ruling that the settlement amount in Brown’s civil lawsuit is “fair and reasonable compensation for this wrongful death claim and is in the best interests of each Plaintiff,” according to the Associated Press. Webber said the agreement will remain sealed “due to the adverse impact to Plaintiffs should it be disclosed,” according to a copy of the filing. “Disclosure of the terms of the settlement agreement could jeopardize the safety of individuals involved in this matter, whether as witnesses, parties, or investigators,” Webber’s ruling continued. “The public policy to consider records open is outweighed by the adverse impact to Plaintiffs.” Under state law, the city may be forced to disclose the amount of the settlement despite the order. The Post-Dispatch reported on Monday that the settlement would be less than $3 million, which is the limit of the city’s insurance, but it was not clear how much less the settlement amount would be.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Barney Roy and Ribchester lead Godolphin march with Royal Ascot wins

• Sheikh enjoys 40th racing anniversary of first UK winner• James Doyle celebrates after difficult period with GodolphinThere was racing at Brighton on Tuesday, just as there was on 20 June 1977, when Sheikh Mohammed al-Maktoum took the train to the south coast to watch Hatta become the first horse to carry his colours to victory. Forty years later to the day, there were two more winners to add to the thousands that have followed since that trip to the coast, as his Godolphin operation registered a Group One double on the Royal meeting’s opening day and beat an odds-on favourite fielded by their fiercest rival.This must have been one of the most satisfying afternoons in the Sheikh’s four decades as an owner, as first Ribchester, in the Queen Anne Stakes, and then Barney Roy, in the St James’s Palace Stakes, the day’s feature races, proved themselves to be milers of exceptional quality.

Frankie Dettori ruled out of Royal Ascot meeting due to arm injury

Jockey sustained injury in paddock fall at Yarmouth last week‘For me that’s soul destroying as it’s the most important week’Frankie Dettori, the most successful current jockey at Royal Ascot with 56 winners and the second-favourite to be the week’s top jockey, will miss all five days at this year’s Royal meeting as a result of an injury sustained in a fall at Yarmouth last week. Dettori was unseated from an unraced filly in the paddock at Yarmouth last Tuesday, shortly after being legged into her saddle. He appeared to be holding his left shoulder as he was attended to by medical staff, but both the rider and his agent, Ray Cochrane, seemed confident afterwards that he would be fit for the Royal meeting.

Окончательно доказана гипотеза Кеплера об упаковке шаров

Группа математиков под руководством профессора Питтсбургского университета Томаса Хейлса (Thomas Hales) представила положительные результаты проверки сделанного ранее  доказательства математической гипотезы об упаковке шаров. Статья об этом опубликована в журнале Forum of Mathematics, Pi. Гипотезу о наиболее плотном размещении шаров в пространстве высказал в 1611 году Иоганн Кеплер. Появление подобных задач в математике было вызвано практическими задачами по оптимальному размещению пушечных ядер. Согласно Кеплеру, среди всех упаковок шаров равного размера в трехмерном пространстве наибольшую среднюю плотность будет иметь гранецентрированная кубическая упаковка и упаковки, равные ей по плотности. Профессор Хейлз и его ученик Сэм Фергюсон объявили о доказательстве гипотезы Кеплера в 1998 году, но решение было настолько длинным и сложным, что проверяющая его группа из двенадцати математиков работала пять лет и в итоге пришла к выводу, что доказательство «скорее всего, верно». «У них просто не было времени или сил, чтобы полностью проверить всё, – говорит редактор журнала Forum of Mathematics, Pi Генри Кон (Henry Cohn). – Никаких непоправимых изъянов не было выявлено, но не удовлетворяла ситуация, когда доказательство, казалось бы, было недоступным для тщательной проверки математическим сообществом». Тогда профессор Хейлз решил обратиться к компьютерам и использованию формальных методов проверки. Он и группа его соавторов изложили доказательство необычайно подробно, используя строгую формальную логику, а затем компьютерная программа проверила их рассуждения. В 2015 году Хейлз опубликовал препринт с результатами проверки, подтвердившими его правоту, а теперь вышла официальная публикация в рецензируемом журнале. Доказательство гипотезы Кеплера стало самым сложным математическим доказательством, подтвержденным при помощи компьютера. Задачи об упаковки шаров имеют в наши дни практическое значение, о котором в XVII веке Кеплер не подозревал. Они помогают решить проблему передачи информации с сохранением передаваемого сигнала в условиях помех.

Godolphin badly need winners at Royal Ascot after exit of John Ferguson

It is 13 years since Godolphin last enjoyed what could be fairly described as a really good meeting at Britain’s centrepiece of Flat racingWith the Queen having commented on the “very sombre national mood” just three days before attending Royal Ascot’s opening day for the 64th year running, the results of the races at Flat racing’s most famous meeting will seem more inconsequential than ever in the wider scheme. Doubly so when it comes to the successes and failures of a bloodstock operation that can afford to fund 700 thoroughbred horses in training around the world.A good Ascot is not Sheikh Mohammed’s primary focus at present, either. The ruler of Dubai and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates will be more concerned with the continuing diplomatic crisis in the Gulf, where the UAE is part of the Saudi-led coalition imposing a blockade on Qatar. The Sheikh has ploughed more money into racing and breeding than any owner the sport has seen, but the Royal meeting is likely to offer him, at best, some light relief from events at home.

There Is No Justice In America For Black People Killed By Cops

It’s happening again. I have to write about Philando Castile, the 32-year-old black man who was shot and killed by a Minnesota police officer last July. I have to compose myself, sit at this laptop and write something profound about another black life taken by a police officer, another officer found not guilty for killing a black person. And, you know, I have nothing much to say. On Friday, St. Anthony police Officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty in Castile’s death. In audio recording from just before the encounter, Yanez can be heard saying: “I’m going to stop a car. I’m going to check IDs. I have reason to pull it over. The two occupants just look like people that were involved in a robbery.” “The driver looks more like one of our suspects, just ’cause of the wide-set nose,” Yanez continues. He later confirmed that he believed Castile matched the description of a suspect, something cops often say about black men. Yanez pulled the car over. Things escalated. Yanez shot seven times into the vehicle. He thought Castile was reaching for his weapon, a gun that Castile was licensed to carry and that he had informed the officer about moments before. Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, says he was reaching for his wallet. She began filming on her phone. The resulting video, with Castile bleeding to death on camera as Reynolds calmly complies with the officer’s screamed instructions, is impossible to forget. The officer was placed on leave. The officer was charged. And now, nearly a year later, the officer is acquitted and goes home to his family, unlike his victim. It’s almost textbook. our legal system is not constructed for the charging and conviction of police officers who kill people - no matter the circumstances— Wesley Lowery (@WesleyLowery) June 16, 2017 there is pretty much nothing a cop can do to a black person—on tape or otherwise—and not get away with— Vann R. Newkirk II (@fivefifths) June 16, 2017 This feels like collective ptsd. The stress of being black in America and not knowing whether you'll come home alive.— Tanzina Vega (@tanzinavega) June 16, 2017 At least 991 people were shot and killed by police in 2015, and no officers were convicted. Video footage showed the questionable deaths of Terence Crutcher, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray, to name a few. But that also didn’t lead to any convictions. Justice Department investigations into police departments nationwide ― most notably in Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland and Ferguson, Missouri ― have found widespread systemic issues and evidence of officers routinely violating the rights of citizens.  Like a number of black people, I am traumatized by this ― to the point where I expect there to be no justice, no ramifications, no fucks given when a black person is killed by a police officer. Every time this happens, my stomach twists into knots. I want to scream, but I can’t. When I think about how Castile, an elementary school cafeteria worker, was pulled over 46 times before the traffic stop that took his life, I get angry. Actually, I get pissed the hell off. I am tired. I am sick. And it hurts to think that Castile could have been my father, my boyfriend, my brother, my cousin or my nephew, who just started driving this year.   But I also feel selfish for turning inward and thinking about all the black men close to me when I see Castile’s mother, Valerie, on national television: gripped with righteous anger, but fighting back the pain long enough to get her point across. “The system continues to fail black people,” she said Friday after the verdict. “My son loved this city, and this city killed my son. And the murderer gets away! Are you kidding me right now?” “We’re not evolving as a civilization,” she added. “We’re devolving. We’re going back down to 1969.” It sure seems like it.

'God Help America': Philando Castile's Girlfriend Speaks Out After Cop's Acquittal

Philando Castile’s family and friends were outraged on Friday after a jury acquitted the officer who last year fatally shot the 32-year-old while he sat in his car. St. Anthony Police officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty on a charge of second-degree manslaughter, as well as on two counts of reckless discharge of a firearm. The Minnesota cop went to trial after he shot Castile during a traffic stop last July. Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter were in the car at the time. Reynolds live-streamed the aftermath of the shooting, which brought worldwide attention to the case.   She said Friday that she was “incredibly disappointed with the jury’s verdict.”  “My boyfriend, Philando Castile, was pulled over because, per officer Yanez, he had a wide nose and looked like a suspect,” she said, according to KSTP producer Ben Rodgers. “It is a sad state of affairs when this type of criminal conduct is condoned simply because Yanez is a policeman. God help America.” Statement from Castile's girlfriend Diamond Reynolds: "I am incredibly disappointed with the jury's verdict." pic.twitter.com/gL7vt5g3Nc— Ben Rodgers (@BenRodgers1) June 16, 2017 Castile’s mother, Valerie, didn’t mince words after the verdict. “The system in this country continues to fail black people and will continue to fail us,” she said outside the courtroom. “My son loved this city, and this city killed my son. And a murderer gets away. Are you kidding me right now?” Philando Castile's mother after verdict: "My son loved this city. And this city killed my son."pic.twitter.com/tkDRl4lcII— Crystal Johnson (@Crystal1Johnson) June 16, 2017 The trial was often a back-and-forth between Reynolds and the officer. Yanez claimed on the stand that he opened fire when he thought Castile was grabbing for a gun; Reynolds contended that Castile was cooperating with the officer’s instructions.  Earl Gray, an attorney for Yanez, said the officer thought Castile matched the description of a robbery suspect, according to The New York Times. “We have him ignoring his commands. He’s got a gun. He might be the robber. He’s got marijuana in his car,” Gray told jurors. “Those are the things in Officer Yanez’s head.” Prosecutor Jeffrey Paulsen said Yanez was “jumping to conclusions.” “[Castille] offered no resistance,” Paulsen said, according to the Times. “He made no threats. He didn’t even complain about being stopped for such a minor offense.”  The jury, selected earlier this month, reportedly only included two people of color: an Ethiopian-American community college student and a black man who managed a Wendy’s restaurant. It was unclear whether those two jurors were among the 12 that rendered Friday’s verdict, or if they were among the three alternates. Yanez has been fired, the city of St. Anthony reported Friday. “The City of St. Anthony has concluded that the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city,” a statement on its website read. “The city intends to offer Officer Yanez a voluntary separation agreement to help him transition to another career other than being a St. Anthony officer.” My son loved this city, and this city killed my son. Valerie Castile Since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, a total of 17 cases involving police officers charged with murder or manslaughter have gone before juries. Majority-white juries have decided 15 of those verdicts. At least 82 officers across the country have faced murder or manslaughter charges for on-duty shootings since the beginning of 2005, according to research from Philip Stinson, an associate professor of criminology at Ohio’s Bowling Green State University. Just 29 of those cases have ended in conviction, although a number are still pending. No officer has been convicted so far this year. Juries have shown time and time again that they’re “not willing to second-guess officers who get on the stand and testify at their own trial in their own defense that he or she thought that they were gonna get killed and that’s why they used deadly force,” Stinson said.  Stinson said police kill around 1,000 civilians each year, and that verdicts like the one in Yanez’s case suggest the legal system may be willing to accept that these casualties are “just the cost of doing business.” “Even when the prosecution has gone to great lengths to put on expert testimony and other police officers to show that a reasonable officer on the objective standard would not have perceived that threat,” he added, “when the officer gets on the stand and subjectively says, ‘I thought my life was in danger,’ it’s almost as if the jury at that point can’t process what the prosecution has spent so much time and effort into getting across at the trial.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Destination Unknown review – agony of memory gives vivid power to Holocaust stories

Claire Ferguson’s valuable addition to documentaries about the Nazi death camps focuses on the testimonies of robust, pain-racked survivorsClaire Ferguson’s documentary is a powerful, valuable addition to the Holocaust testimony genre, established 30 years ago by Claude Lanzmann. The film’s witnesses are now in their 90s, but in many cases extremely unfrail, almost as if kept in a kind of pain-racked vigour and electrified by the agony of memory, and by their determination to survive, to bear witness, to enforce a personal triumph over the forces of evil. Llion Roberts, the film’s producer, interviews many survivors and each has a quietly devastating story to tell. Perhaps the most striking is the Pole Ed Mosberg, who was sent to the Kraków-Płaszów and Mauthausen camps, and who today gives lectures there in replica camp uniform. He is a taut, fierce, wiry figure, someone for whom the past is, in Faulkner’s words, not dead and not even the past. Much of the film is about the Kraków camp and the horrendous figure of the camp commandant Amon Göth, some of whose inmates were famously liberated by the factory owner Oskar Schindler; Ferguson does not allude to the Thomas Keneally novel or the resulting Spielberg film, and it is probably a wise choice to keep the focus simply on the historical facts.

Полиция Фергюсона арестовала священника за участие в акциях протеста

В ночь на 30 сентября группа священнослужителей Фергюсона, штат Миссури, вышла на улицы города, чтобы принять участие в акциях протеста против полицейского произвола. Представители сил правопорядка разогнали собравшихся, арестовав при этом преподобного Осагиефо Секу, которого посчитали организатором митинга. Волнения в городе начались в августе, когда полицейский застрелил безоружного темнокожего юношу Майкла Брауна.
