FLINT, Mich. – The case of a Canadian man charged with stabbing a police officer at a Michigan airport isn’t on a fast track.A judge agreed Friday to extend important deadlines while federal investigators and defence lawyers collect and review evidence, especially in Montreal where Amor Ftouhi (ah-MOOR’ fuh-TOO’-ee) lived.Ftouhi is accused of stabbing a police officer in the neck at Flint’s Bishop International Airport last June. Investigators say the native of Tunisia yelled “Allahu Akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great.” Lt. Jeff Neville survived.Federal Judge Linda Parker set a July 30 trial. She also set May 23 as the day for any plea deal.Ftouhi legally entered the U.S. at Champlain, New York, on June 16, five days before the attack.

All that water has been collecting in a series a lakes and reservoirs.“It’s been a blessing. We’re now transferring enough water to supply 130,000 people for six months,” says Mosher.That’s free water. The only cost is purifying. Normally, we have to ‘buy’ the water from outside sources, then purify.“If we don’t have to buy the water, it’s much cheaper for our customers,” says Mosher.Sweetwater is one of many Water Districts is San Diego that are doing well. Nearly every lake and reservoir in the area is reporting near record increases.Making matters even better, the mid-winter Snow Pack Measurement was just taken.As of today, we are 120% above normal for this time of year. The state of California get’s 30% of its water from snow pack. February 28, 2019 Dan Plante, Dan Plante Posted: February 28, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter

Volkswagen, German automaker and its labour unions have agreed to layoff 30,000 people over the next five years at its VW brand. The aim of cutting the jobs is part of a plan to boost profitability and to provide funding for electric and self-driven cars post the disastrous carbon-emission scandal. Europe’s largest auto manufacturing company is trying to increase savings in its home-country, where costs are high. Volkswagen also has to shell out billions of euros in payments for the cleanup related to its carbon emission scandal, Reuters reported.The company is expected to make the announcement later during the day during a press conference, which would take place at the company’s headquarters in Wolfsburg. The unanimous decision of going ahead with job cuts follows eight months of intense negotiations and the works council and the trade union.Sources quoted by the news agency said the labour union leaders have agreed to the job cuts on a prior managment’s pledge to create new jobs and the VW’s investment in electronic cars (mainly at factories in Germany). The firm also plans to create additional 9,000 jobs by investing in electric car technology. According to a previous report in German newspaper Handelsblatt, about 30,000 jobs would be axed by 2020 in a bid to save about 4 billion euros. It also said that Volkswagen would cut 10,000 jobs outside Germany (focusing in North and South America).
