So where is the Intel® SCS in Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) SP1? The short answer is MS SCCM SP1 does not use the Intel SCS. The longer answer is that Microsoft, as part of their architectural design of SCCM SP1, has chosen to develop their own mechanism for performing the initial provisioning and configuration of the Intel® vPro Clients. This is different from the requirement the Intel Client Manageability Add-on for SMS 2003 had on the Intel SCS for enterprise provisioning and configuration. Each ISV, as part of their enablement of vPro Management Technology within their product, can choose to leverage the Intel® SCS or use it as a reference design to develop their own implementation. Microsoft, with SCCM SP1, is not the only ISV that chose to develop their own capability for provisioning and configuring vPro Client; did you know that LANDesk also does not use the Intel SCS for vPro Client provisioning and configuration? Matt Royer The Intel® Active Management Technology’s (Intel® AMT) Setup and Configuration Service (Intel ®SCS or SCS) provides developer or ISV with the tools to set up and configure Intel AMT devices. The Setup and Configuration Service (SCS) allows for most aspects of setup and configuration to be completed through a remote management console. The service package consists of a configuration engine and installer in binary form, plus a reference graphical user interface that the ISV may integrate into their Manageability Product.
Seven experts called upon to give advice ahead of the deadly earthquake that struck L’Aquila, Italy, in April 2009 should each be jailed for 4 years. That was the request made today by prosecutors in a manslaughter trial taking place in the central Italian city. The seven were full or acting members of Italy’s National Commission for the Forecast and Prevention of Major Risks. The panel met on 31 March 2009 in L’Aquila to assess the danger posed by an ongoing series of seismic tremors known as a swarm that had been shaking the town and the surrounding area for the previous 3 months. The scientists, engineers, and a public official are accused of having carried out a superficial risk analysis and of having provided the townsfolk with a false sense of security a week before the quake struck. The seven defendants are: Franco Barberi, a volcanologist at the University of Rome (Roma Tre) and the commission’s then-vice-president; Enzo Boschi, a geophysicist at the University of Bologna and at the time president of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV); Gian Michele Calvi, a seismic engineer at the University of Pavia; Mauro Dolce, a seismic engineer and director of seismic risk at Italy’s Civil Protection Department (DPC); Claudio Eva, a seismologist at the University of Genova; and Giulio Selvaggi, a seismologist at INGV; alongside DPC’s then-deputy head Bernardo De Bernardinis.

Yesterday, in the 24th hearing, public prosecutor Fabio Picuti presented an 8-hour summary of the case against the indicted. His arguments drew on witness statements as well as a draft version of the minutes of the 31 March meeting not available when he first formulated the charges in 2010. That document includes a number of controversial statements not contained in the official minutes, including a reference to the discredited idea that small tremors tend to reduce the chance of a bigger quake because they discharge energy. That concept was cited by many of the victims’ relatives as having persuaded their loved ones to stay indoors in the early hours of 6 April 2009. Today, Picuti’s colleague Roberta D’Avolio argued how specific victims of the 2009 earthquake were persuaded by the statements of the commission, which were relayed to the public via press reports, to stay inside on the night of the quake. The next few weeks will see lawyers presenting civil claims, followed by closing arguments from defense lawyers. Judge Marco Billi is due to reach a verdict by 23 October. Edwin Cartlidge On the attack. Fabio Picuti makes the case for the prosecution as the trial continues.
Filipinos in cinemas, bars, restaurants, and basketball courts erupted into jubilation on Sunday as they watched boxing icon Manny Pacquiao scored a unanimous decision win over Jessie Vargas to win the WBO welterweight title in Las Vegas.The 37-year-old Philippine senator put on a dazzling display in his return to the ring after a brief retirement, even fighting with more intensity and energy, and dominating the 27-year-old American in the final rounds to close out an emphatic victory.The presidential palace led the nation in sending a congratulatory message to Pacquiao, though it did not say if President Rodrigo Duterte, Pacquiao’s political ally, watched the fight.’SOURCE OF INSPIRATION’But it did say “the courage and grit displayed by our Filipino boxers in Las Vegas are the same qualities we must demonstrate as a nation to rid society of drugs, criminality and corruption.””Once again, Manny’s triumph united and brought joy to our people and our nation,” a statement issued by the Office of the Communications Secretary said.”The discipline, the determination, and the hard work of our People’s Champ are truly what make him a National Treasure in Global Sports.”During Pacquiao’s fight, streets in the Philippines were deserted as his legions of fans packed into cinemas, bars and restaurants, and basketball courts to watch on big screens, bringing the country to a virtual standstill.Troops in army bases also watched how Pacquiao, an army reservist, beat the much younger Vargas.”Army Lt. Col. Manny Pacquiao of the Reserve Force has truly been a source of inspiration, not only to our troops, but also to our organization (that) aspires to be a world-class Army by 2028,” said Col. Benjamin Hao, Philippine Army spokesman.advertisementIt was Pacquiao’s first fight since winning a seat in the Senate in May. He previously served as congressman and is widely regarded as the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter.
Manchester City made it 13 wins from 15 Premier League games this season with a 2-1 victory at Watford on Tuesday.Goals in each half from Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez secured all three points for the champions, who were again without the injured Sergio Aguero and left the in-form Raheem Sterling on the bench at Vicarage Road.Abdoulaye Doucoure had them worried in the closing stages after Fabian Delph lost possession near his own penalty area, but City soaked up the late pressure to hold onto the lead.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The result puts City five points ahead of second-place Liverpool, having played a game more, and means Watford have now lost seven matches in a row against Pep Guardiola’s side.Ben Foster did superbly to deny Mahrez and stop Bernardo Silva and David Silva from following up on the rebound, but Troy Deeney spurned Watford’s best opening of the first half when he failed to beat Ederson’s outstretched leg from eight yards out.Sane punished that miss five minutes before the break, turning home Mahrez’s curling cross from the right with his chest after Foster had thwarted David Silva moments before.It was a goal that seemed to sap some life out of the home fans and any hope of a comeback was seemingly quashed six minutes after the break, when Mahrez swept home Gabriel Jesus’ cross when unmarked in the box.Jesus wasted two clear chances for a third, heading Bernardo Silva’s flick-on over the crossbar before clipping a tame finish wide of the right-hand post, but they were not left to rue those misses despite Doucoure scrambling the ball home with six minutes left.Who wants a high five? #WATMCI pic.twitter.com/NiuPSg9kwg— Manchester City (@ManCity) December 4, 2018What does it mean? City put pressure back on LiverpoolCity were left to endure a nervy climax to a match that for so long had been comfortable, and it means they again have a healthy advantage over Liverpool in the table ahead of the Reds’ game with Burnley on Wednesday.Guardiola will be pleased to have been able to rest the likes of Sterling and Aymeric Laporte, too, with captain Vincent Kompany getting only his fourth Premier League start of the season.Watford drop to 11th, courtesy of Brighton and Hove Albion’s win over Crystal Palace, and Javi Gracia will be a little concerned that they have mustered only one point since October.Mahrez a real menaceMahrez was causing problems with his right-wing delivery long before he set up Sane to open the scoring, and he fully deserved to be on the scoresheet for a lively display, even if he was sometimes guilty of over-playing. A good Foster save denied him a second goal.Success is hard to come byThe game largely seemed to pass by Isaac Success, who appeared uncertain when to drop deep to bolster the midfield and when to support Deeney. Mostly, he failed to do either. He also completed just 50 per cent of his passes.Key Opta Facts- Manchester City’s goal difference of plus 38 is the is the best recorded by an English top-flight team after the first 15 games of a season since Sunderland in 1892-93 (plus 39).- City have scored at least twice in their last nine games against Watford in all competitions, winning all nine by an aggregate score of 29-5.- Watford have lost three in a row in the Premier League for the first time since December 2017 under Marco Silva (4 games).- City have now gone unbeaten in each of their last 21 games in the Premier League (W18 D3), since a 2-3 defeat against Manchester United in April.- Leroy Sane has scored five goals in his last five Premier League starts.What’s next?City are in London next Saturday when they visit Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea, while Watford head to Everton next Monday. read more

Chelsea Who is Michael Emenalo? Chelsea’s controversial technical director quits role Nizaar Kinsella Click here to see more stories from this author Chelsea correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 00:00 11/7/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(12) Getty Chelsea Transfers Premier League Antonio Conte Opinion The Nigerian worked behind the scenes at Stamford Bridge in a transfer-policy position that was often mystifying to the club’s fans Michael Emenalo has resigned from his position as Chelsea’s technical director.It is increasingly uncommon to find a head coach who negotiates their own transfers and Antonio Conte worked in conjunction with Emenalo and club director Marina Granovskaia until the former decided to quit on Monday.Chelsea 6/5 to finish top London club Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player As Roman Abramovich’s closest ally at the club, Granovskaia stakes a strong claim to being the most powerful woman in football. She has the mandate to both buy and sell players on behalf of the billionaire owner.Emenalo, meanwhile, worked under her as the technical director, overseeing the club’s scouting network and academy.The duo made headlines all summer long for the wrong reasons as Chelsea appeared to struggle to seal deals for several key transfer targets.Conte’s relationship with them has also been called into question, prompting rumours that the Italian might quit or be sacked because of internal disputes over player recruitment.Those reports were dismissed but a few months on, it has turned out that it is Emenalo instead who will head for the exit door.But has the criticism aimed at both the Nigerian and Granovskaia been justified? Goal investigates.WHAT DID EMENALO DO AT CHELSEA?To understand Emenalo’s role we must first further introduce Granovskaia, who is the most important person at Chelsea when it comes to transfers.The Russian is responsible for signing new players and rubber-stamping contract renewals, and is currently trying to tie down Belgian stars Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.Promoted to the board of directors – where she sits alongside the likes of the club chairman Bruce Buck and fellow director Eugene Tenenbaum – in 2010, she is a skilled negotiator and speaks several European languages.Granovskaia has been a close associate of Abramovich’s for around 20 years and she was also the mastermind behind the club’s record commercial deal with Nike.Emenalo had slightly less power than Granovskaia but was often seen at Chelsea’s training ground and was a key component in the club’s operational activity with Conte and the first team.He helped to identify transfer targets, alongside Conte, and provide data on those targets before a final decision was made.He also oversaw the hugely successful academy at Cobham Training Centre and the club’s loan policy, which has been as lucrative as it is controversial.Emenalo rose to the position of technical director after being appointed assistant first-team coach while Avram Grant was in charge. He was the head of opposition scouting before that.He is a former Nigeria international and represented his country at the World Cup in 1994.HOW DID EMENALO GET ON WITH CONTE?Conte does not simply coach the players given to him; he remains an important cog in the transfer machine at Chelsea given his own extensive list of contacts, particularly in Italy.The Chelsea head coach has been leaned upon to make his own approaches but he would never be allowed to finalise a deal without the rest of the transfer team’s input.N’Golo Kante was probably Conte’s biggest success story in terms of transfers, as a conversation with the former Juventus boss persuaded the French midfielder to move to Chelsea amid competition from other clubs.Conte will usually become involved once a transfer fee is agreed and the target is granted permission to talk to Chelsea.With that being the case, as much as Emenalo has often been blamed for transfer failures the Italian had also had the chance to become involved when the Blues failed to convince Ross Barkley and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to join the club.Granovskaia, Emenalo and Conte was a Premier League-winning team last season but Goal understands that relations became strained at times during the last transfer window.They appeared set to continue to work together by remaining in their positions after the window had closed, but now Emenalo has quit.And while Conte recently signed a new deal with the Blues, it did not extend his stay at Stamford Bridge but merely earned him a pay rise.Antonio Conte and Michael Emenalo chatting after training on the pitch. #cfc pic.twitter.com/fMPf2WDYjH— Nizaar Kinsella (@NizaarKinsella) May 25, 2017History tells us that coaches don’t last long at Chelsea and after Conte had challenged all parties to remain united, Emenalo’s departure marks the first break in the structure.The manager has expressed his desire to coach Chelsea at the redeveloped Stamford Bridge but after an apparent falling out with David Luiz and a visit from Abramovich at training, he appears to be walking a tightrope.IS THE CRITICISM OF EMENALO FAIR?In the summer, Chelsea missed out on signing Romelu Lukaku, who instead elected to move Manchester United.Oxlade-Chamberlain also rejected their advances, instead choosing Liverpool, while Barkley decided to stay at Everton.Fernando Llorente picked Tottenham over Chelsea on deadline day, even though the Blues had been tracking him since the winter transfer window.And Juventus wing-back Alex Sandro never made the trip from Turin to London despite the Blues’ best efforts to agree a £60m deal with the Bianconeri.All things considered, it’s fair to say that Chelsea’s transfer window wasn’t a total success.The Blues used to be a transfer market powerhouse. In 2004, Abramovich took over the Premier League club and within a season he took their net spend from a £500,000 profit to an approximate £153m outlay.Premier League spending has gone up across the entire league and Chelsea made six high-profile signings at a cost of around £187m this summer.But their net spend since January 2017 is now a profit following the sale of Diego Costa to Atletico Madrid. Chelsea have gone from being a free-spending billionaire’s toy to a club that spends the money it brings in, thanks in part to their notorious loan system.Another criticism is that Chelsea have sold too many players, with talented youngsters like Nathan Ake and Nathaniel Chalobah amongst those offloaded. It is understood that these two, along with many other youngsters, pushed for moves away from Stamford Bridge over a lack of first-team opportunities.Granovskaia and Emenalo, however, wanted them to stay. It is Conte who favours experienced performers over promising youths and pushed to sign several players aged 30 or over during the summer, including Leonardo Bonucci, Dries Mertens and Antonio Candreva.Emenalo’s smile after Chelsea celebrated their title #cfc pic.twitter.com/ghtifmj538— Nizaar Kinsella (@NizaarKinsella) May 16, 2017In the end, Drinkwater, at 27, was the oldest player that Chelsea brought in.The club’s directors want to sign younger players for their re-sale value. This is a repositioning of the club’s approach from shopping in Paris Saint-Germain’s market to that of Borussia Dortmund, who have a reputation for developing and then selling youngsters at a profit.On the one hand, PSG and Manchester City become are pushing their budgets and challenging UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations while the Blues become more sustainable. On the other, this puts Chelsea out of the running to sign truly world-class players like Neymar.Chelsea still aim to win trophies but they are trying to do it more prudently, working in the final days of the transfer window. Deals can sometimes be completed at a lower price by that point, but they can also become more chaotic.While Conte has his say, Emenalo answered to Abramovich and the days of Chelsea spending sprees are well and truly over. The technical director’s departure will not change that.

Coimbatore: About 400 DMK workers were held Wednesday for trying to stage a protest demanding Municipal Administration Minister S P Velumani’s resignation for his alleged failure to resolve the water crisis here and Tamil Nadu at large. Led by party Singanallur MLA N Karthik, along with former minister Pongalur N Palanisamy, the party workers demonstrated in front of the Corporation office by raising slogans against Velumani for allegedly failing to create necessary infrastructure to store water. Nearly 100 women carrying empty pots and holding placards saying ‘provide drinking water’ raised slogans seeking regular water supply, which is now done once in 15 to 20 days in most of the areas. The DMK workers demanded also cancellation of project awarded to French firm Suez for supplying 24 X 7 water, as the delay in digging and laying pipeline were causing the drinking water crisis. Since there was no permission to stage the demonstration, police arrested the party workers.

26 September 2011Malta has urged United Nations Member States to help the Mediterranean island country cope with an influx of refugees and other immigrants who have fled from the recent political upheaval in North Africa, especially Libya. “We continue to call for international solidarity and burden sharing in dealing with this phenomenon,” Malta’s Prime Minister, Lawrence Gonzi, told the general debate of the General Assembly on Saturday.“It is our hope that the European Union’s Asylum Support Office which opened in Malta last June will contribute to the task of streamlining asylum policies in the European Union and its Member States and improve cooperation between authorities.”Noting that Malta has over the course of history earned the title of “nurse of the Mediterranean,” Mr. Gonzi pointed out that his country has in recent months provided a humanitarian hub for the evacuation of nearly 20,000 people.At the height of the crisis in Libya, many boats laden with migrants fleeing the conflict made voyages to Malta and Italy, sometimes with tragic consequences when some of the vessels overturned at sea with heavy loss of life.

The Islamabad-based Office of the UN Coordinator for Afghanistan reported that so far, Adopt-a-Minefield, a campaign of the UN Association of the USA, has raised over $620,000 to clear 22 sites in the country. The campaign seeks national and international sponsors to adopt minefields that the UN has identified as being in urgent need of clearance. “The Adopt-A-Minefield Campaign in Afghanistan has been the most successful in the world,” said Oren Schlein, the Programme’s Executive Director, who worked previously at the UN. Currently in Islamabad, Mr. Schlein will head to Afghanistan tomorrow to visit mine action centres and review the Campaign’s work in the country. Ted Turner’s Better World Fund provides Adopt-A-Minefield with a 25-cent match for every dollar raised, which pays for the administrative and programming costs of the Campaign. According to the Office of the Coordinator, this arrangement makes it possible for Adopt-A-Minefield to forward every dollar raised to the UN for mine clearance. Since its launch in March 1999, the Campaign has raised $3.5 million for demining. Individuals, community groups, and businesses have adopted more than 90 minefields in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Croatia, and Mozambique, according to the UN.
Junior linebacker Ryan Shazier (right) tackles Clemson junior wide receiver Sammy Watkins during the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3 at Sun Life Stadium. OSU lost, 40-35.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorSome former Buckeyes are biding their time as the 2014 NFL Draft looms closer.Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby and linebacker Ryan Shazier are both expected by many NFL draft experts to be picked up late in the first round Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York.Roby, who was a three-year starter for the Buckeyes, finished his OSU career with eight interceptions and 179 total tackles.Shazier, who coach Urban Meyer called “one of best LBs to play at Ohio State,” via his personal Twitter account @OSUCoachMeyer, was an Associated Press All-American in 2013.Both are among the record 30 players invited to the draft, which has typically been an invitation held for those expected to go early in the first round.Roby and Shazier each chose to forgo their final years of eligibility in Columbus to pursue the NFL.OSU is second all time with 67 first-round picks, trailing the University of Southern California at 77, and third all time in overall draft picks at 405, behind USC at No. 1 and Notre Dame.Another former Buckeye who has a chance to go in the first round is running back Carlos Hyde.Hyde, who was the first ever 1,000-yard rusher under Meyer, dominated his opponents in 2013 rushing for nearly 140 yards per game despite missing the first three games due to suspension.Hyde is expected by many NFL draft experts, including ESPN’s Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr., to be the first running back off the board.Hyde would not have been able to gain all of those yards without a stellar offensive line, which graduated four of five starters from the 2013 season.Leading the way from that line is tackle Jack Mewhort, who, according to CBS Sports, is a projected second-round talent.Also eligible for the draft are former Buckeye guards Marcus Hall and Andrew Norwell as well as center Corey Linsley.Other notable Buckeyes that will be trying to make an NFL team come the fall are wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown and fan-favorite quarterback Kenny Guiton.Brown, like Guiton and Roby, went through three different head coaches in his time at OSU and was, for the most part, consistent.Brown was especially productive under Meyer, leading the Buckeyes in receiving the last two seasons with a total of 123 catches for 1,440 yards and 13 touchdowns.Guiton, who became a Buckeye legend during his redshirt-junior season after leading a comeback to beat Purdue 29-22 in overtime Oct. 20, 2012 at Ohio Stadium, has an outside chance at being taken in the later rounds despite being a backup for the entirety of his OSU career.Guiton filled in masterfully for injured starter Braxton Miller in 2013, throwing for 14 touchdowns and just two interceptions including a six-touchdown first-half performance against Florida A&M – which is an OSU record.According to Kiper, Guiton has a chance of being taken in the fifth or sixth rounds of the draft, which are set to take place Sunday.Other notable Buckeyes who are draft-eligible but not expected to be taken are wide receiver Chris Fields, and safeties C.J. Barnett and Christian Bryant.Both Bryant and Barnett were named as OSU captains prior to the 2013 season.Bryant, who suffered a season-ending leg injury against Wisconsin, was denied a medical redshirt appeal by the NCAA in February.The first round of the draft is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. on Thursday.Correction: A prior version of this story stated the first round of the draft starts Friday. In fact, the draft begins on Thursday.
Ohio State starting pitcher John Havird (23) throws in NCAA tournament game versus Louisville on June 4. Courtesy: OSU AthleticsThe Ohio State baseball team fell in a large, early hole and was unable to climb out as they lost 15-3 to the host, and No. 1 seeded, Louisville in the second round of the Louisville regional.After striking out the side on 11 pitches in the top of the first inning, sophomore starting pitcher Brendan McKay helped his own cause in the bottom half of the inning, driving a 1-2 pitch over the right field wall to give the Cardinals an early 2-0 advantage.In the third inning, the rain started pouring down in Louisville, and so did the runs. It was again McKay who sparked the offense as he delivered a RBI single to right with runners on first and second. After two doubles and a passed ball scored three more runs, senior first baseman Danny Rosenbaum mashed a two-run home run to deep left-center field to expand the lead to 8-0. That would end the night for Ohio State’s starter, senior left-hander John Havird. Two more runs off redshirt sophomore right-hander Austin Woodby would make it 10-0 Louisville before the third inning ended.From that point on, it was all Louisville. The Cardinals added three runs in the fourth inning off another home run from Rosenbaum and they plated an additional run in the fifth.The Buckeyes would eventually put themselves on the board. With a runner on first, senior pinch-hitter Daulton Mosbarger hit a homerun over the right field wall to cut the deficit to only 12. A run in the bottom of the eighth by Louisville and a run in the top of the ninth by Ohio State brought the final score to 15-3It was a brutal outing for Ohio State’s starting pitcher on the mound. John Havird entered the day with a 6-3 record and a 3.02 ERA, but ended the night with a loss and a 3.73 ERA. He failed to register an out in the third inning as he gave up six runs on a walk and five hits in the inning. Havird finished the night with two innings pitched, eight hits, eight runs (all earned), two walks and only one strikeout. He also surrendered two home runs in his two innings of work after only allowing two in his previous 92 innings.Louisville’s sophomore starting pitcher Brendan McKay, on the other hand, was extremely sharp both on the mound and at the dish. McKay delivered 5.2 scoreless innings before his outing was cut short by a 48 minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed only six baserunners off three hits and three walks. McKay struck out ten batters in the outing. At the plate, McKay was two for four with a home run, three runs batted in and two runs scoredFollowing the loss to the Cardinals, the Buckeyes will attempt to stave off elimination and keep their title hopes alive in a rematch against the Wright State Raiders on Sunday at noon.
She added: “He gave me the drink and then I started being really sick in the toilet, so I didn’t look at my phone or the time at any stage.”The woman said that Mr Piras, who is Italian, told her she could go upstairs to “sleep it off” in one of the club’s bedrooms, where she alleges that he raped her. Prosecutor Nick Wayne told the court that the woman woke up to find Mr Piras on top of her just wearing boxer shorts. He said that she “still felt heavily intoxicated, couldn’t open her eyes properly or move.” Mr Wayne said that Mr Piras proceeded to assault the woman as she told him “to get off her”. Judy Khan, defending, asked the woman: “Are you absolutely sure that you only had, in what must have been several hours, those two glasses of champagne?”The woman replied: “Yeah, one hundred per cent.” It was the drink he gave me that put me into that stateAlleged victim Ms Khan continued: “I’m not making any criticism at all when I say this, but you were accustomed to drinking, weren’t you? You said in your police interview ‘I can handle my drink’.”Jurors heard that the woman told officers about a drinking session where she had half a bottle of rose, two glasses of wine, a double disaronno, and a double vodka.”And afterwards you didn’t feel tipsy after that – in fact, you went on to party at a different venue after that,” said Ms Khan.The barrister put it to the woman that she had invented the story about Mr Antioco. “I’m suggesting there was never any time when you were given a drink by Mr Antioco,” Ms Khan said, adding: “You were mixing your drinks as well, and that’s why you got into that condition and you have chosen to blame him for that.”The woman insisted: “It was the drink he gave me that put me into that state.”When questioned, Mr Piras said that he had returned to the party after helping the woman to his room. He said that he went back to the bedroom at around 2.30am to charge his phone and that his alleged victim “suddenly” started to kiss him.He claimed that they kissed for a couple of minutes and that he had his hand on top of his body but “stopped it, making it clear he felt uncomfortable.” The trial continues. A luxury magazine publisher raped a woman at a private members’ club after giving her a drugged drink, a court has heard. Antioco Piras, 36, co-founder and publisher of food and lifestyle magazine Four, met the woman at a champagne party at Home House in Marylebone, central London on 20 December 2014.She alleges that she became dizzy and unwell after Mr Piras gave her a drink she believes to have been spiked, and told Southwark Crown Court today that he forced himself on her after she passed out in one of the exclusive club’s luxury bedrooms.Mr Piras denied rape, and said that the woman invented the story after drinking too much. He gave me a large drink that was, I don’t know what it wasAlleged victim Four, which counts Tom Parker-Bowles – the food writer and critic son of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – and Andrea Petrini, food writer and founder of chef collective Gelinaz!, among its contributors, was named the World’s Best Food Magazine at the Gourmand Awards in 2014. It is distributed to Qatar and British Airways, Armani Hotels and Resorts and Palazzo Versace in Dubai.Jurors heard that the woman, in her 20s, arrived at the club, which occupies three Georgian town houses designed by architect James Wyatt, at around 8.45pm. She said that she had drunk two glasses of champagne before Mr Piras offered her a different drink. “He gave me a large drink that was, I don’t know what it was,” she told the court from behind a screen. “Obviously I went to smell it, he said ‘just drink it, it’s nice, you will like it.’ It’s after that drink that I started feeling the way I felt.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

In the July issue (about to mail and be available to download here), John Chadwick reports from one of the cleanest gold mines in the world in the farthest east boundary of the EU, with expanding production likely. Endomines’ Pampalo gold mine is currently producing gold at an annualised rate of 800-900 kg. The mine is located on the 40 km-long gold-critical Karelian Gold Line, where Endomines controls all currently known gold deposits. The mine project was completed in December 2010, on schedule and in line with the budget at €20 million. Commercial production commenced in February 2011 as scheduled.The Pampalo deposit, which remains open at depth, is located in the central part of the Karelian Gold Line, 5 km north of the village Hattuvaara. It is an Archean orogenic gold deposit in an intermediate pyroclastic unit, metamorphosed to greenschist – lower-amphibolite facies. It lies close to the border with Russia in the most easterly extremity of the European Union.Plant capacity was increased from 230,000 t/y to 270,000 t/y by debottlenecking during 2011. Metallurgical testing demonstrated that the gold could be very efficiently extracted by gravimetric separation and flotation concentration. The best results indicated a recovery of more than 90%. As a result, this mine is very clean with minimal emissions, and none to the environment. Its tailings facility is full of what is effectively potable water.

Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber has called for greater transparency regarding former ministers and their work in the corporate world. The call came after an article in The Age this week raised the issue of a potential conflict of interest regarding former Labor Minister of Energy and Resources Theo Theophanous, and his current role as a political advisor to energy company Lakes Oil. During his term as minister between 2002 and 2006, Mr Theophanous played a key role in the creation of the 2005 Geothermal Energy Act and advocated that Victoria should abolish its onshore gas moratorium.Although The Age did not allege that the former minister was engaging in any illegal activity, the newspaper raised speculation over recent meetings Mr Theophanous has had with state Premier Daniel Andrews and Treasurer Tim Pallas. The premier and Mr Theophanous were spotted talking at the A-League Grand Final, and a day later he was seen speaking with Mr Pallas – shortly after the treasurer had given a conference speech about Victoria’s plans to hold an inquiry into onshore oil and gas.When questioned by The Age Mr Theophanous declined to comment on his role or the private talks he had with the politicians. The premier’s office and Mr Pallas’ spokesperson also declined to comment on the nature of the conversations with the former minister.“The treasurer meets with a range of stakeholders across a number of issues, but does not disclose the contents of those private discussions,” Mr Pallas’ spokesperson told The Age. Lakes Oil executive chairman Rob Annells said that there was nothing controversial regarding the former minister’s involvement with the company, citing previous high-profile members of the Lakes Oil board.“We had Alexander Downer on our board … he was an excellent director, and although Theo is not a director, so far we are communicating very, very well and he is a very intelligent man and he has a lot of experience which we are drawing on,” said Mr Annells.Former federal resources minister Martin Ferguson is of a similar mind and currently serves as a director of gas producer BG Group.“I actually think former politicians can bring to business an understanding of the workings of government, and a broader understanding of the expectations of the community,” he said.“Just as [former Greens leader] Bob Brown has devoted his energies to the endeavours of the Sea Shepherd since leaving the senate, it is no different for a former state or federal minister to also work in the business sector, be it of a paid or voluntary nature.”Mr Barber told The Age that “ministers should be banned for life for representing a company on a particular matter or transaction that they oversaw at the time of being minister”.
