How to Upload to YouTube Directly from DaVinci Resolve 16

first_imgBlackmagic is bringing DaVinci Resolve to online content creation with simplified interfaces and direct upload to YouTube and Vimeo.Blackmagic has vehemently been trying to branch out into the content creator crowd to get young filmmakers using their platform. In late winter, I worked with Blackmagic at London’s Vidcon to give Resolve tech demos to the younger demographic. I found that their responses were split: what is Resolve, and how do I make YouTube videos on it? (Or more specifically, how can I make makeup tutorials with this?)Whatever your thoughts about online content creators and YouTube filmmakers, they are an invaluable resource in today’s digital world, and Blackmagic wants them to create their content using Resolve. The Cut Page seeks to streamline the learning curve of the edit page. And now with the ability to directly upload to YouTube and Vimeo, Resolve 16 is attempting to become the online content creator’s first choice.Pair YouTube and ResolveThe process is relatively straightforward. However, since the manual has yet to be updated (16 is still a beta release), you can count on us to guide you through the steps. First, you need to pair your YouTube account within Resolve. To do this, select DaVinci Resolve from the menu bar and select Preferences. Alternatively, you can hit Ctrl+ on the keyboard to quickly bring up the preferences panel. Find Internet Accounts within the pop-up menu, and click Sign-in with YouTube.You will then need to give Resolve the authority to publish to YouTube. Before doing so, make sure you read the conditions, so you feel comfortable giving a third-party app access to your YouTube account.With the accounts linked, you can now directly upload to YouTube. On the delivery page, select the YouTube export preset, and adjust the profile to your desired render settings. Then, at the bottom of the menu, check the Upload directly to YouTube checkbox. You can perform this operation on any page using the Quick Export — and by selecting the YouTube preset with the same box selection.You can then add the video file to the render queue and hit Start Render. Now, two things will happen: first, your video will render to the chosen file path; second, your video will upload to YouTube. If you open your YouTube dashboard, you’ll see the upload in process.Since Resolve exports first, you’re still getting the completed render, not just a digital export. Thankfully, Resolve will upload the video to YouTube with a private setting. So you’re not going to have to rush to change the privacy setting of the video — but you will need to add the keyword tags and video description. The title of the render will become the title of the YouTube upload. Perhaps, in a future version of Resolve, you’ll be able to add all elements of the video data to YouTube — from the Resolve dashboard — to completely cut-out the need for an internet browser.Pairing Resolve with Vimeo is just as straightforward. You need to hop back into preferences and sign in to your Vimeo account. Next, authorize Resolve’s access, then upload via the Vimeo preset. However, unlike YouTube, the Vimeo upload will be public. Therefore, you may need to quickly adjust the privacy settings if you intend to premiere the content on a specific date. Removing The LinkIf you’re not wholly keen on leaving YouTube and Vimeo paired with Resolve — or perhaps you’re using Resolve on someone else’s machine — here’s how you unlink the devices.First, hop back in the Internet Accounts panel and sign out of the respective publishers. Then, for YouTube, head to, and select the security tab. Halfway down the page, you’ll find third-party apps with an account access section, click manage third-party apps. On the next page, review the apps connected to your Google account, and revoke the access granted to DaVinci Resolve.For Vimeo, head to, then navigate to the Connected apps setting. In the settings menu, disconnect DaVinci Resolve.There is no disconnect button, but by clicking the green connected button, it will disconnect the link.Without the ability to adjust all metadata properties of a video upload, I’m not too sure how useful I find this feature. Yet, at its core, it’s essentially saving you a few clicks. This can be useful if you have multiple videos to upload and you need to move away from the computer. You could render the video, take a lunch break, and come back to find everything exported and uploaded and waiting for metadata. However useful you find this feature, I love it when companies try something new. (Also, it’s just nice to see a more social feature integrated into Resolve.)Lewis McGregor is a certified DaVinci Resolve trainer.Looking for more on DaVinci Resolve?

Banned Narsingh Yadav forced to miss WFI event

first_imgSaving embarrassment to Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), Narsingh Yadav skipped an event to announce a new franchisee based competition Vishwavijeta Gama Wrestling World Cup which has the blessings of the WFI.Narsingh is currently serving a four year ban imposed on him under a Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling which was announced 12 hours before his Olympic bout at Rio.The media invite for the event had Narsingh listed as one of the guest speakers to promote the event but he did not turn up. “It’s clear Narsingh cannot contest in this competition as per the ban order. In fact I cannot share the stage if he is here,” WFI secretary TN Prasood clarified.The organisers are hopeful of getting Narsingh involved in tournament promotions at some level even if he cannot compete. (Also read: If I’m the culprit, hang me: Narsingh Yadav)The World Cup promises to have an Indian wrestler compete against eight other foreigners, each owned by a franchise with the winner taking home 1 crore rupees.A number of qualifying rounds are scheduled in various parts of Maharashtra and Narsingh is the only current wrestling Olympian from Maharashtra. “We will need to get clearance from WADA and higher offices are being used to see if we can get Narsingh involved in some capacity,” said a source from the organisers.Prasood meanwhile reiterated his defence of sending Narsingh to Rio despite the hanging sword of a possible ban under a CAS ruling. “We followed all the care, sending Narsingh only on 10th of August after we got all clear from United World Wrestling (UWW)and IOC. Unfortunately WADA challenged it last minute and in the hearing NADA spoke of a letter written to them complaining of drug abuse at SAI centre which has still not been given to us,” he threw the blame on NADA. (Also read: New twist to Narsingh Yadav doping scandal)advertisementEven as the federation and NADA play the blame game, Narsingh’s career is under a serious threat of being all but over unless a review appeal is filed and upheld. “My ambition is to see the ban reduced,” WFI secretary said. Than goes on add. “But we have to follow the rules.”Pretty much sums up how Narsingh’s case was undone at the CAS tribunal after a rushed clean chit by NADA. The dope accused wrestler is meanwhile still said to be pushing for a CBI inquiry over the entire fiasco.last_img read more

The two big traps of code coverage

first_img Continue Reading Previous Motherboards for safe operation in harsh industrial environmentsNext congatec: COM Express Computer-on-Module with 3 GHz Intel Core i3 processor Code coverage is important, and improving coverage is a worthy goal. But simply chasing the percentage is not nearly so valuable as writing stable, maintainable, meaningful tests. By Arthur Hicken, Parasoft                       Download PDF version of this article Measurement of code coverage is one of those things that always catches my attention. On the one hand, I often find that organizations do not necessarily know how much code they are covering during testing – which is really surprising! At the other end of the coverage spectrum, there are organizations for whom the number is so important that the quality and efficacy of the tests has become mostly irrelevant. They mindlessly chase the 100% dragon and believe that if they have that number the software is good, or even the best that it can be. This is at least as dangerous as not knowing what you have tested, in fact perhaps more so since it can give you a false sense of security.Code coverage can be a good and interesting number to assess your software quality, but it is important to remember that it is a means, rather than an end. We do not want coverage for coverage’s sake, we want coverage because it is supposed to indicate that we have done a good job testing the software. If the tests themselves are not meaningful, then having more of them certainly does not indicate better software. The important goal is to make sure every piece of code is tested, not just executed. Failing enough time and money to fully test everything, at least make sure that everything important is tested.What this means is that while low coverage means we are probably not testing enough, high coverage by itself does not necessarily correlate to high quality – the picture is more complicated than that. Obviously, having a happy medium where you have “enough” coverage to be comfortable about releasing the software with a good, stable, maintainable test suite that has “just enough tests” would be perfect. But still, these coverage traps are common.Parasoft DTP example dashboard The first trap is the “we don’t know our coverage” trap. This seems unreasonable to me – coverage tools are cheap and plentiful. A friend of mine suggests that organizations know their coverage number is not good, so developers and testers are loath to expose the poor coverage to management. I would hope this is not the usual case.One real issue that teams encounter when trying to measure coverage is that the system is too complicated. When you build an application out of pieces on top of pieces on top of pieces, just knowing where to put the coverage counters can be a daunting task. I would suggest that if it is actually difficult to measure the coverage in your application, you should think twice about the architecture.A second way to fall into this trap happens with organizations that may have a lot of testing, but no real coverage number because they have not found a proper way to aggregate the numbers from different test runs. If you are doing manual testing, functional testing, unit testing, and end-to-end testing, you cannot simply add the numbers up. Even if they are each achieving 25% coverage it is unlikely that it is 100% when combined. In fact, it is more likely to be closer to the 25% than to the 100% when you look into it.As it turns out, there is in fact a way to measure and add coverage together in a meaningful fashion. At Parasoft, we leverage the vast amount of granular data captured by our reports and analytics tool, Parasoft DTP, which we can use in this context to provide a comprehensive, aggregated view of code coverage. Our application monitors are able to gather coverage data from the application directly while it is being tested and then send that information to Parasoft DTP, which aggregates coverage data across all testing practices, as well as across test teams and test runs. If that sounds like a pretty significant amount of information, you are right! DTP provides an interactive dashboard to help you navigate this data and make decisions about where to focus testing efforts.If multiple tests have covered the same code, it will not be overcounted, while untested parts of the code are quick and easy to see. This shows you which parts of the application have been well tested and which ones have not.  So, no more excuses for not measuring coverage. This leads us to the next trap – the “coverage is everything” perspective. Once teams are able to measure coverage, it is not uncommon for managers to say “let’s increase that number.” Eventually the number itself becomes more important than the testing. Therein lies the problem – mindless coverage is the same as mindless music. The coverage needs to reflect real, meaningful use of the code, otherwise it is just noise.And speaking of noise… the cost of coverage goes up as coverage increases. Remember that you not only need to create tests, but you have to maintain them going forward. If you are not planning on reusing and maintaining a test, you should probably not waste time creating it in the first place. As the test suite gets larger, the amount of noise increases in unexpected ways. Twice as many tests may mean two or even three times as much noise. The meaningless tests end up creating more noise than good tests because they have no real context, but have to be dealt with each time the tests are executed. Talk about technical debt! Useless tests are a real danger.Now, in certain industries, safety-critical industries for example, the 100% coverage metric is a requirement. But even in that case, it is all too easy to treat any execution of a line of code as a meaningful test, which is simply not true. I have two basic questions I ask to determine if a test is a good test.  What does it mean when the test fails? What does it mean when the test passes?Ideally, when a test fails, we know something about what went wrong, and if the test is really good, it will point us in the right direction to fix it. All too often when a test fails, no one knows why, no one can reproduce it, and the test is ignored. Conversely, when a test passes we should be able to know what was tested – it should mean that a particular feature or piece of functionality is working properly.If you cannot answer one of those questions, you probably have a problem with your test. If you cannot answer either of them, the test is probably more trouble than it is worth.The way out of this trap is first to understand that the coverage percentage itself is not the goal. The real goal is to create useful meaningful tests. This of course takes time. In simple code, writing unit tests is simple, but in complex real-world applications it means writing stubs and mocks and using frameworks. This can take quite a bit of time and if you are not doing it all the time, it is easy to forget the nuances of the APIs involved. Even if you are serious about testing, the time it takes to create a really good test can be more than you expect.At Parasoft we have an answer for this: the Unit Test Assistant inside the Java development testing tool (Parasoft Jtest) takes on the tedious tasks of getting mocks and stubs right. It can also help expand existing tests in a useful way to increase coverage – helping you create good unit tests as well as make recommendations to improve test coverage and test quality as well.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software last_img read more

Cricket World Cup 2019 England cricket team Reuse this content The enthralling Scottish match raised two simple questions. Why are Scotland not playing in the 2019 World Cup? Why are England favourites for that competition?Scotland performed brilliantly at the Grange in a wonderfully entertaining contest which could be appreciated on either side of Hadrian’s Wall. They have never scored so many runs; they have seldom played better. They were, however, given a helping hand by an England side whose defeat unwittingly reopened the debate about the format of cricket’s World Cup.England were hapless in the field from 11 o’clock on Sunday. It is hard to fathom what they were doing in the field then but these are only the thoughts of an antediluvian. England won the toss and put Scotland in to bat in Edinburgh. There was once a school of thought that the decision taken at the toss should be influenced by this question: “What is the best way to get to the halfway point in charge of the game?” The Spin: sign up and get our weekly cricket email. Daniel Bell-Drummond: ‘We want people from all backgrounds coming to cricket clubs’ Support The Guardian Share on Pinterest The Spin Since you’re here… Scotland target Test status ‘in a couple of years’ after historic win Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Scotland Cricket Team Read more Share on Facebook Of course the problem is not insoluble, though, as in most cricketing decisions, at home and away, the one that seems to be the most obviously lucrative is always the favoured option, regardless of the more distant consequences.Here is a rough guide to how things could be improved: a 14-team competition which requires qualification for two or four sides since the recent tournament in Zimbabwe, from which Afghanistan and West Indies emerged as the finalists and therefore participants in the 2019 World Cup, was such a riveting and worthwhile event.There would be two groups of seven sides which all play each other. The top team in each group would have a safe passage to their semi-final; second and third in each group would play eliminators to reach a semi-final, as is the case in the Royal London Cup.Such a system removes the criticism, which is often valid, that “we know who the eight quarter-finalists are going to be before the tournament starts”. That was almost the case in 2015 in Australasia. There was some drama along the way but seven out of eight of the “senior” sides made it; only England of that octet failed to do so.Such a system might satisfy the Scots. If they play with the same passion as they did on Sunday they would surely book their place in the top 14.• This is an extract taken from the Spin, the Guardian’s weekly cricket email. To subscribe, just visit this page and follow the instructions. Choosing to bowl first is obviously a good option if the wicket is damp or green, allowing the pacemen a chance to prevail. The notion of exploiting early moisture is sound but this did not apply on Sunday. The sun rose in Edinburgh at 4.28am last weekend so there was probably enough time for any moisture to burn off. Moreover the wicket was true, the outfield fast and the boundaries short. Goodness knows how many England might have scored without the pressure of chasing. Probably the only way England could have lost that game was by letting Scotland bat first and exploit the benign conditions. The stock response to such silly old‑fashioned thinking is that it can be “tricky to set a total” on such a surface and “we think we can chase anything”.Admittedly England did not distinguish themselves with the ball. Indeed it was tough to work out how they can be World Cup favourites when watching this attack on Sunday. England have an array of potent batsmen who can smash the ball everywhere but history suggests the trophy is won usually by the side who have the best bowling attack, one that can cope in sublime batting conditions. England’s seamers offered no movement, pace or guile. Or straight yorkers, which are now as out‑of-date as hula hoops.Yorkers should be the first port of call when the batsmen are getting out of hand and if they happen to be straight there is always the chance of dismissing someone. True, straight balls can be risky when the batsman is dancing around his crease but with the risk comes reward – when they miss. One reason why these yorkers are so out of vogue is because they are very difficult to deliver and the margin of error is small so bowlers tend to shrink from that option; another may be that they are so very 20th century. features Cricket Share on Messenger Share on WhatsApp Share via Email So much for England’s frailties. What of Scotland’s long-term prospects in a week when their rival, Afghanistan, join Ireland as a Test nation? Scotland have the same ambitions for Test cricket but at the moment perhaps the best they can hope for is to participate in an enlarged World Cup in 2023. They should be there. This does not represent a Damascene conversion on my part, but in the past I have not been so zealous as some of my colleagues about the urgency to increase the number of teams in the tournament.My concerns have centred upon a fear of too many one-sided games, an argument weakened considerably by the match in Edinburgh, and the dangers of an unnecessarily elongated competition. Often in World Cups it has taken at least a month to establish the quarter-finalists, whereupon the tournament comes to life, even though by then some of the players are exhausted having been compelled to travel thousands of miles in the group games.There have barely been two World Cups with the same format. In the Caribbean in 2007 the International Cricket Council may have thought it had found the perfect system, which allowed 16 teams to participate. These were initially split into groups of four, from which two sides would progress to the next stage. The theory had merit; in practice it was soon regarded as a disaster. After playing three matches India were eliminated and the ICC’s commercial wing were tearing their hair out at the consequent loss of revenue. This could not be allowed to happen again.

Air Transat slammed fined for handling of hourslong tarmac delay

OTTAWA — A federal agency has ordered Air Transat to cover out-of-pocket expenses for passengers who were caught in an hours-long tarmac delay this summer as part of a ruling that slams the airline’s handling of the fiasco.The Canadian Transportation Agency said Air Transat broke its tariff agreement with customers about when they can be let off a flight due to a tarmac delay.The ruling made public Thursday comes almost four months after two flights — one from Rome, the other from Brussels — sat on the tarmac in Ottawa for almost five and six hours, respectively, with passengers not allowed to disembark.How Air Canada is vying to lure U.S. international travellers to fly through TorontoTransat calls on government to remove joint venture provision from Bill C-49One of the two aircraft ran out of fuel during the delay, then lost power, causing the air conditioning system to shut down.During two days of hearings in August, passengers described how tensions mounted as temperatures rose, a child threw up on board one plane and ultimately a passenger on the Brussels flight called 911, attracting widespread media attention.A number of people who were on board the planes told the hearings they would have given anything to be allowed to disembark, even if it meant additional delays or a two-hour drive back to Montreal.Weather caused the two flights to be diverted to Ottawa on July 31, along with about 20 other planes in an incident that appears to have taxed airport resources in the national capital to their limit. Fuelling teams, for instance, ran out of fuel on several occasions.Among the planes was an Airbus 380, the largest to land that day.The need to find a place to park that Air Emirates flight forced crews to move the two Air Transat planes to the airport taxiway, where they could be neither refuelled nor serviced. As a result, they ended up being among the last planes to be refuelled.The airline argued it shouldn’t be held liable for what happened, blaming the airport authority and refuellers among others for the delays.Transportation agency members agree that Air Transat was not solely responsible for the delays, but said the extraordinary situation didn’t relieve Air Transat from its commitment to its customers.The agency said Air Transat’s tariff agreement with customers is too broad and gives pilots too much discretion about when to let passengers leave an airplane, despite wording that says passengers have the option of disembarking after a 90-minute delay.Air Transat must amend the wording to require passengers to disembark after a delay of four hours, unless there are safety, security, or air traffic control issues that prevent it.The airline is also being ordered to amend its rules to update passengers every 30 minutes. It also said the airline must ensure there are working bathrooms and provide medical assistance as needed during long delays.A representative from Air Transat was not immediately available to respond to the ruling.The federal government’s proposed air passenger bill of rights, which is stuck in the Senate, would set strict new standards for airlines to follow when flights are cancelled or delayed. read more

Annan begins official visit to Ukraine discusses global hotspots with President Kuchma

Speaking to reporters after his meeting with President Kuchma, the Secretary-General said they had discussed Ukraine’s role in the UN, including its active contribution to UN peacekeeping.“And we did discuss crisis spots around the world and the need for us to use political means to resolve all these problems and our differences, because, quite honestly, in most of these situations there’s no military solution and the only way out is political dialogue and a political solution,” he said.Asked about the international response to the Chernobyl nuclear accident, Mr. Annan noted that during the emergency phase attention had been focused on the problem. “And now we should not take our eyes off the ball and we must remain focused, particularly in dealing with the human aspects of the crisis,” he said. “We are going to remain engaged and I assured the President that in my own contacts with world leaders I will encourage them to do the same.”On his arrival in Ukraine on Sunday, the Secretary-General was asked at a press briefing about Ukraine’s intention to join NATO. In reply, he noted that the European continent was “coming together,” and added, “I think it is important that Ukraine is making these attempts to get closer to the rest of Europe.”Mr. Annan pointed out that all European Union countries were striving to share common values of democracy, human rights and governance based on the rule of law. “Ukraine is becoming an important part of that movement, and I’m pleased about that,” he said. read more

Care homes should prioritise wifi to make sure grandchildren come to visit

“Wi-fi can be the difference between allowing a medical professional, a GP to see a patient urgently and making that decision as to whether they need to be rushed into A&E and actually whether they’re OK, it’s a UTI and they need a course of antibiotics. “It can help manage staff rotas so businesses become more efficient, there’s a continuity of care and also the business is sustainable,” she told an audience at the event organised by think tank the Resolution Foundation. Research published by Citizens Advice has found that one in five care homes do not offer wi-fi to residents and one in four care home staff did not know whether or not it was available.”Where wi-fi is not available, residents would have no access to Skype, Facebook, email or other services that might be used to keep in touch with friends and family unless they arrange mobile internet for themselves at extra cost,” the charity warned.  Care homes need to prioritise wifi to make sure grandchildren come to visit, care minister Caroline Dinenage has said. Speaking at an event in London the minister said not enough homes allowed their residents to access wi-fi. She said internet access could help older people stay in touch with their families and encourage younger members to come and visit more often. “Wi-fi actually can encourage your grandchildren to come and visit. Because they will sit there, and you can do something together,” she said. Dementia patients can be helped by “incredible online tools to help people and trigger memories and for therapeutic things,” she added. Online systems are available which allow patients and their families to upload photo albums, music playlists and videos that they can then watch together. She added that a lack of internet access could cause problems with access to medical care and information as well as making it more difficult to organise staff rotas.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Court ruling nixes accidental porn viewing convictions

first_imgThere’s been plenty of debate over the years as to what constitutes wrongdoing when it comes to your web browser. Are files that wind up on your hard drive evidence enough, if they’re limited to your browser cache? A judge in New York thinks not, and he’s brought down the banhammer on accidental porn viewing convictions.According to Senior Judge Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick’s ruling, merely viewing illegal images (child porn, for example) does not constitute possession or procurement under New York law. An additional step must be taken for that to be the case — such as saving images to a separate folder on an internal or external hard drive — in order for an offense to occur. Either that, or you’ve got to have demonstrable knowledge of how a web browser works.While on the surface this might look like a green light to browse child porn, the truth is that it’s more about protecting people against wrongful prosecution for happening upon the wrong link at the wrong time. There are all kinds of snares set on the web nowadays, and they’re pulling people into all kinds of kinds of dangerous situations.That includes dragging them onto sites slathered with illegal content.But if your cache happens to be riddled with such images, you’re still fair game. The judge’s ruling was based on the fact that prosecutors failed to prove that the defendant knew what a browser cache was or how it worked, and was therefore unaware that anything was being saved to his hard drive as he (or someone else, as he claimed) surfed. If you’re fully aware of what a cache is and the way it functions, you’re still on the hook.More at MSNBC, via Slashdotlast_img read more

How the tragic loss of a child inspired a family to help

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram There’s nothing that can prepare you for the tragic loss of a child, and the enduring grief that follows.Maria Mihos and her husband George know this first-hand.Tuesday 11 December would have been their first-born son’s sixth birthday. Haralambos Harrison Mihos was born premature at 23 weeks and three days, weighing just 660 grams. In critical condition, he fought for 21 hours of his life. By the next morning his body had shut down.“We’ll never know why this all occurred,” Maria told Neos Kosmos.“I had an infection – the Strep B strain; most women can have this in a pregnancy and go through with no issues. However this may’ve brought on the sudden labour for me.”Following Haralambos’ passing, a nurse at the hospital, which Maria wished not to name, offered to bring the baby to the couple, instead of them going to the morgue. They were thankful for the offer, but were shocked with the events that would follow.“They brought him to me in this zipped up black freezer bag – if you can picture like a bassinet-style, but it was fully zipped up. They were in a rush and whatnot, so they just placed him at the end of my bed … They said ‘we’ll be back in 10 to 15 minutes max’ obviously because he’s in a freezer and they can’t keep him cold,” she recalls.Left alone with their baby, Maria looked to her husband and then back at the bag, and proceeded to slowly unzip it.“Our precious boy [was] lying peacefully in the outfit we had placed him in after his first and final bath we had given him just a few short hours before.“Then they took him away and that was pretty much our only time that we spent with him until his funeral,” she says – recalling that moment as “bittersweet,” a memory which is forever imprinted in their minds.Maria with baby Haralambos Harrison. George and Maria with baby Haralambos Harrison.Maria with baby Haralambos Harrison. In the months that followed, as part of her own healing process, Maria went on to do a lot of research into infant death, and during her search came across the Cuddle Cot.A small cot, it is designed with a cooling system fitted to lie beneath the baby to give bereaved families the chance to keep their baby close, and to spend as much uninterrupted time with them as they wish before saying their final goodbye.“I thought it just would have been more comforting to have that instead of the memories that we do have. He could have been with us for as long as we wanted, it’s not rushed, it’s as close to normal as you can get,” Maria explains.A Cuddle Cot.Since then it has been a rollercoaster six years for Maria and George, who after losing Haralambos have gone on to have three children: Connor Konstantinos George, aged five; Nina Mersina, aged three-and-a-half; and Louis Lambros aged two – all of which were difficult pregnancies.It was just four months after Haralambos’ passing that Maria fell pregnant with Connor via IVF again. Told she had an “incompetent cervix,” she was bedridden in hospital and monitored closely from 24 weeks pregnant.Connor was then born at 27 weeks, and spent 86 days in the NICU and Special Care Nursery, during which he overcame the odds, and went home fit and healthy.While they have had their hands full, over the past six years their memories of Haralambos have remained a constant. Wanting to do something to honour their son’s memory with a lasting legacy, the opportunity came in late August. To coincide with pregnancy loss awareness month in October, they teamed up with charity Bears of Hope to launch a fundraiser to raise $6,000 – the cost of supplying a hospital of their choosing with a Cuddle Cot.“Now I’ve had a bit of time to breathe, but I reflect everyday. I can say it’s made us stronger, but there are many days that I don’t feel like that. All you hear from people is ‘oh wow, you’re so strong, and you show such courage’. Yes, life has gone on, and Harrison now has three baby siblings… but we go through the motions everyday. The grieving process is not something that passes; it’s like a part of my heart will always be missing,” says Maria.“So if this is just something little that we can do to help and support families that will unfortunately go through it, because it continues to happen; if you can make the healing process from the beginning a little bit easier, that’s what we hope we can do.”Baby Connor Konstantinos George.Connor defied the odds, going on to be a healthy, happy baby.George and Maria Mihos with their children Connor Konstantinos George, Nina Mersina, and Louis Lambros.A Christmas stocking for each of the Mihos children, including baby Haralambos Harrison.George and Maria.Baby Connor Konstantinos George.Along with honouring baby Haralambos’ memory, for Maria, by sharing the fundraiser with family and friends online via social media and email, it has also been a way of raising much-needed awareness about infant death, which is still very much a taboo topic.“Before all this, I didn’t know of anyone who had experienced a neonatal loss. But it’s amazing after the fact, so many people either know someone or may have gone through it themselves whether or not it was an early miscarriage, stillbirth at full term or neonatal loss and some people have never spoken about it,” she says.“You celebrate a birth; the baby books that you read do not really focus or discuss SIDS, stillborn or neonatal death. Unfortunately, we have experienced everything that tends not to be focused on too much in the books.”With Wednesday having marked what Maria has dubbed Haralambos’ sixth “Angelversary,” it was only fitting that they had surpassed their $6,000 to make their Cuddle Cot donation to St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Fitzroy where Maria, with the help of her obstetrician Dr Guy Skinner, had her three subsequent babies.Meanwhile, in addition to the money raised, a particularly generous donation was made by a family in honour of their matriarch’s passing and that of Haralambos, for the sum of $6,000.“It wasn’t planned that we’d be doing the presentation the day after Harrison’s 6th Angelversary… but in a way I’m kind of glad that it was, because it makes it a little more poignant and will help with our healing, because our healing is still everyday… it’s a grieving process that will last until the day we meet again.”The Mihos family at the St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Fitzroy on Thursday honouring baby Haralambos’ memory with the donation of a Cuddle Cot.The family visited baby Haralambos on Tuesday to commemorate what would have been his sixth birthday.The Mihos family at the St Vincent’s Private Hospital in Fitzroy on Thursday honouring baby Haralambos’ memory with the donation of a Cuddle Cot.The Cuddle Cot fundraiser will remain open until the end of the year.

Opening statements slated for trial of Navy SEAL accused of murder in

first_img KUSI Newsroom Updated: 9:19 AM KUSI Newsroom, Posted: June 18, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Opening statements are scheduled Tuesday at the trial of a Navy SEAL accused of fatally stabbing a wounded teenage ISIS fighter in Iraq and shooting at Iraqi civilians.Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, 40, faces life in prison if convicted of murdering the teen in May 2017, as well as shooting a male and female civilian, and shooting at an unknown number of other civilians later that year in Mosul, Iraq.The highly decorated veteran is also accused of posing with the teen’s body in a photograph, while he and other SEALs held a reenlistment ceremony while standing over the body. Navy prosecutors estimate that the ISIS fighter was about 15 years old.Prosecutors also allege that Gallagher tried to bribe fellow SEALs not to talk about the incident to NCIS investigators.Gallagher’s defense team says the allegations come from a group of disgruntled subordinates who felt their platoon commander was too tough on them. His attorney, Timothy Parlatore, alleged in a television interview that Gallagher’s accusers are lying.“We intend to annihilate the government’s case,” Parlatore said.A statement released over the weekend by Gallagher’s defense team called the allegations “a smear campaign full of lies.”The trial has also been dogged by allegations of prosecutorial misconduct, with the trial judge finding that Navy prosecutors used tracking software to spy on the defense team’s email accounts.The judge, Capt. Aaron Rugh, removed Cmdr. Chris Czaplak from the case just before the trial was set to begin, ruling the prosecution sent emails to the defense and a Navy Times reporter that were embedded with code that would track the recipients’ email activity. Cmdr. Jeffrey Pietrzyk has replaced Czaplak.The judge also ordered that Gallagher be released from custody due to violations of his Fourth and Sixth Amendment rights and reduced the maximum possible sentence of life without parole to life with the possibility of parole.Gallagher’s defense team unsuccessfully sought to have the case thrown out following the email allegations.Gallagher — a 19-year Navy veteran — has received public support from President Donald Trump, who commented in a social media post earlier this year that Gallagher should be moved to less restrictive confinement and has hinted at pardoning him.Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, has also advocated pardoning Gallagher and stated publicly that he also posed with an enemy combatant’s corpse during his time in the Marines.RELATED STORY: Sean Gallagher talks about a letter he wrote to his brother Eddie Gallagher before the trial began center_img Opening statements slated for trial of Navy SEAL accused of murder in Iraq June 18, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Eddie Gallagher FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Singer R Kelly charged with prostitution and soliciting minor in Minnesota

first_imgSinger R KellyTwitterSinger R Kelly has found himself in hot water once again as allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor surfaced in Minnesota. Kelly has reportedly been charged with prostitution and soliciting a minor girl at a concert back in 2001.The R&B singer, who is currently in a New York prison, is facing 18 total counts of sex crime charges in Chicago and New York for incidents that took place within a span of 20 years.The singer was arrested last month by the NYPD in Chicago as he was charged with federal sex trafficking allegations. R Kelly even applied for bail last week but the plea was denied. Kelly reportedly met an underage girl in Minneapolis at a promotional event. After giving her an autograph, Kelly wrote down a phone number and asked her to call, stated Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.The girl was later invited over to the singer’s hotel and eventually brought to Kelly’s room by one of his associates. The underage girl was then offered $200 to take off her clothes and dance for him, to which she complied.Freeman also added in a news conference that sexual contact did occur between the girl and Kelly. However, there was no intercourse involved. The girl was later given VIP seating for the concert.”It is despicable that Mr Kelly used his fame in order to prey on underage girls,” Freeman said during the conference.”While there are more numerous charges in the Illinois and federal cases, we wanted to make sure that our victim here in Minneapolis also receives a measure of justice. We fully expect that at some future date, Mr Kelly will have to account for his actions in Hennepin County,” added Freeman.Freeman concluded that the victim and her brother were interviewed before any charges were filed. Kelly has been charged with a series of cases pertaining to minor sexual abuse and child pornography. He has denied all the allegations against him.last_img read more
