Terrorism suspicion on Amsterdam flight

Two passengers have been arrested at Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport on Monday morning due to suspicion on terrorism plot. The men, Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al-Soofi and Hezam al-Murisi, both of Yemeni origin, were travelling on a flight from Chicago bound to Amsterdam when the US security officials allerted the Dutch authorities that the pair were carrying suspicious items in their baggage. The items discovered in the suspected luggages were an empty shampoo bottle with watches bound to it and another empty bottle of stomach medicine with mobile phone attached to it. Obviously "the items were not deemed to be dangerous in and of themselves" but the US law enforcement sources believe that the situation looks like a dry-run, a test to see how the security methods work at airports. The investigation is still under way and the path followed by the pair is puzzling: They seem to have started their trip in Birmingham, checked in the luggage on a flight from Chicago to Yemen with scheduled stops at Washington's Dulles airport and Dubai. Subsequently the pair boarded United Airlines 908 flight from Chicago to Amsterdam and when the security team at Dulles airport observed that Ahmed Soofi was not in the same plane as his bag, they recalled the flight and removed the luggage. New York Times reported that the two men had scheduled another route through Alabama rather than Illinois. The questioning still continues at Schiphol airport and it is expected the Dutch officials to come up with an updated statement.

The telescope discovered also a third body approximately 1.5 times the size of the Earth and orbiting the star very close with a period of 1.6 days. NASA has not confirmed yet this third celestial body as a planet.

France team strike at World Cup 2010

The players of the France national football team went on strike following the dramatic situation developped after the 2-0 defeat against Mexico. French footballers boycotted the scheduled training on Sunday in protest against the France Football Federation (FFF) decision related to Nicolas Anelka who was expelled from the team and sent home. In the presence of the media, Raymond Domenech had to present a statement from the squad explaining their arguments. The french players handled over a series of complaints condemning the fact that "FFF did not try at all to protect the team", " FFF decision was taken without consultation of the players but only on the facts related by the press". In consequence, to show their disagreement, all players decided to cancel the training; instead, they organized a meeting with the supporters.
The French team scandal has its origins at the halftime of the match with Mexico when Anelka and trainer Domenech had a rough dispute. The wrangle continued at the lockers with Domenech reproaching Anelka that his position in the team's tactics was not too offensive and subsequently Anelka insulting Domenech using tough words such as "go fuck yourself, you son of a whore". This altercation got to the ears of the journalists through what french players call "a traitor of the team". Anelka - Domenech scandal made the delight of the scandal press and this fact seems to be the biggest reason why the french footballers are upset. As if these problems were not enough, the captain Patrice Evra said that Les Bleus have now "a traitor" and they must find him. So far most of the suspicions go to midfielder Yoann Gourcuff.

Showroom presentation advises

The advantages of a trade event attendance relies on the fact that you have the opportunity to be on top of the latest industry trends, make contacts, and strengthen the ties with the customers.
In order to fully benefit of all privileges of a show presentation, it is recommendable to check the knowledge base of the internet resources. Any trade show room can be fitted with modern items and articles selected from a large list of trade show exhibits manufactured with special designs and in various forms. The main intention is just to make a good impression and capture the attention of any visitor making use of imagination, creativity and taste.
It is desirable to show efficiency in advertising the products and to promote the company’s name by any original means; therefore a method to highlight your brand is by using suitable table covers. No matter if it is your own house, showroom or office space, table covering is always part of the environment. Many people try to buy the coverings from the department shops but they might not find what they expect. One of the best solutions is to opt for professional clothing designers because the table covers can be customized for any type of table of any size and shape. The covers can be imprinted with proper messages, banners or personalized symbols. This represents an alternative which successfully serves your purposes. Another way to highlight an exhibit is by employing the table top presentation displays. Some of the advantages of a table top display consist of its lightweight, portability and the fact that it comes with various colours, sizes and styles such as banner, pop-up, panel, mixed displays, etc. A relevant aspect to mention here is the case of the 2-sided tabletop displays where both sides of the display board can be used to prompt the desired message. A possible drawback is related to the prices that seem to be somehow too high.
Indispensable to stylish furniture are obviously the directors chairs. They are regarded as being comfortable, cheap and the delivery time is really fast. The directors chairs manufacturing includes indoor and outdoor designs and come up with various heights which make these chairs useful in diverse locations like pubs, counters or game tables. When choosing for a show room design, it should be taken into account several factors, like the type of environment the show display is used in, the allocated budget, how well the display represents the image of the services, company, brand, etc. All these factors are important for having a show presentation well done.

Plane collision avoided at Ben-Gurion Airport

Taffic controllers averted catastrophic event Wednesday evening at Ben-Gurion airport when a Turkish pilot ignored take-off instructions as Romanian plane was preparing to land. The israeli traffic controllers at Ben Gurion airport ordered the pilot of the Turkish Corendon Airlines to delay the take-off for about 12 minutes due to a Romanian Tarom airplane which was executing landing manoevers.

The Romanian airplane was flying 300 meters above the ground at a distance of 3 km from the landing spot and about 90 seconds from landing. The pilots of an El Al plane waiting in line after the Turkish plane observed the possible iminent collision and alerted the traffic control tower which alerted the Romanian pilots to delay landing. Ben Gurion airport has one single runway in service since one month ago due to upgrading of the other two runways. The Israeli Transportation Ministry opened an investigation after the Airport Authority handed over the recording of the communication to the air crash investigator Attorney Yitzhak Raz.
Update1: The Romania's state-owned Air Company (TAROM) said it does not own the plane reported to have been involved in Ben-Gurion near crash.
