Chandigarh, June 23

Mobster Lawrence Bishnoi has admitted he was the mastermind behind the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala and had been planning it since last August, Punjab Police ADGP Pramod Ban said on Thursday.

Ban, who also heads the anti-gangster task force, said another defendant, Baldev alias Nikku, was arrested on Thursday.

Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, also known as Sidhu Moosewala, was shot dead in Mansa district of Punjab on May 29, a day after the Punjab government temporarily trimmed security blankets for the singer and 423 people.

“We had recently arrested Lawrence Bishnoi in this case and his pretrial detention has been extended until June 27. He has admitted that he was the mastermind (of the Moosewala murder),” Ban said.

“The plan to carry out the murder had been hatching since August last year. According to our information, the reconnaissance was carried out three times. Also in January, another group of snipers had come to kill Moosewala but did not couldn’t do it,” said the ADGP.

The head of the anti-gangster task force was addressing a press conference here to divulge the latest developments in the Sidhu Moosewala murder case.

He also said a receipt dated May 25 from a Fatehabad-based petrol station was found in the vehicle used in Moosewala’s murder, leading Punjab police to release the record.

“From CCTV footage obtained from Fatehabad fuel pump, we have identified the accused Priyavrat alias Fauji. We have arrested 13 people so far and the whole plot has been unraveled,” said Ban.

A court in Mansa has extended the custody of mobster Lawrence Bishnoi who was brought to the state by Punjab police from Delhi last week for questioning in the murder case of singer Sidhu Moosewala.

Delhi police have arrested three people, including two shooters in the case, officials said on Monday, adding that one of them was in contact with Canada-based mobster Goldy Brar at the time of the incident. —with PTI

Osinachi’s Husband Treated Her Like An Animal – Late Singer’s Sister Tells Court https://podolskaya.info/osinachis-husband-treated-her-like-an-animal-late-singers-sister-tells-court/ Wed, 22 Jun 2022 18:45:21 +0000 https://podolskaya.info/osinachis-husband-treated-her-like-an-animal-late-singers-sister-tells-court/ Favor Madu, the sister of famous Nigerian gospel singer Osinachi, told the Federal Capital Territory High Court on Monday that her sister was treated like an animal by her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.

Favor Madu, the sister of famous Nigerian gospel singer Osinachi, told the Federal Capital Territory High Court on Monday that her sister was treated like an animal by her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.

Ms Madu, 44, a data processing officer at the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Enugu, gave evidence as a second prosecution witness in the presumptive homicide case brought against Mr. Nwachukwu by the Attorney General’s Office.

When prosecution lawyer Aderonke Imana asked Ms Madu to explain why she wanted justice, she said “her husband never treated her well. He treated her like an animal, beat her anyway, never made her happy and never allowed her to be around his family.

Furthermore, she also told the court that her sister got married in 2008 and had four children. She said the eldest was 12 while the last girl was 7.

The witness further testified that they referred to Mr. Nwachukwu as a “manager” because he was in control of everything, including his money, and his fear of him prevented him from getting along well with his family.

She said ”there was a time when she went to the ministry, and when she asked for a stage fee, she was told that 2 million naira had been paid into her husband’s account. He was in charge of booking events, collecting money and only telling her to go and do her ministry without giving pocket money.

“When my father was sick, he wanted to come to Abuja for treatment, but the accused refused and my father eventually passed away. On a trip to our father’s funeral, the defendant slapped her because she complained about the way he was driving.

Ms Madu also told the court that Osinachi developed an ulcer due to starvation because Mr Nwachukwu had never supported his family.

“She was the breadwinner for the family. My sister owns the house they lived in. He kicked her out of the house with their last baby in the rain, and it was her first son who slipped a wrapper to cover the baby.

Cross-examination

During the defense attorney’s cross-examination of the witness, I. A Aliyu asked how she came to know about the events since she was in Enugu. She said her late sister told her on the phone.

Mr. Aliyu asked the witness if the family expected to benefit from his late sister’s finances, and she answered in the affirmative.

When asked if she asked what led to her sister’s death in hospital, she said the defendant prevented the deceased twin sister and her brother, who were in hospital, from ask the doctors.

The judge, Njideka Nwosu-Iheme, acquitted the witness and adjourned the case until Tuesday to continue the hearing.

Similarly, Caroline Madu, Osinachi’s mother, has appealed to the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, to help her get justice for her daughter.

Ms. Madu, 61, a resident of Enugu, while being brought to testify by prosecution lawyer Aderonke Imana as the main witness through an interpreter, also informed the court that she and her other children had never been allowed to visit Osinachi except on a time when she was ill.

“I visited my daughter when she was sick and when we went to church, Peter left my daughter, and I got stranded in church while he was leaving with the kids. Peter left me called me a witch, kicked me out of his house, and a man from Delta State took me in.

“I saw her last December when she came to Enugu for a program. Before that there was a time when she left her marital home because of the abuse, and she stayed with me for a year and three months before Peter came with a pastor to beg because he had shot a new page.

However, Ms. Madu noted that after Osinachi returned home and gave birth to her third child, she called home to inform them that she was hungry.

“I had to send my son Chibuzor to him with food in Abuja. My son, after four days, called me that he was no longer comfortable because Peter poured water on him and told him never to help wash his children’s clothes and poured water on Osinachi and her newborn as she prayed,” she testified.

Additional questioning

When asked why she never visited her daughter when she gave birth in accordance with Igbo culture, defense attorney I. A Aliyu objected to the issue and said that was a leading question.

Mr Imana, in response, argued that Section 7 of the Evidence Act stated that the Act stated that she could ask questions focused on areas that would bring out facts leading to the charge against the ‘accused.

For her part, the judge, Njideka Nwosu-Iheme, supported the objection and said that although article 215 of the law on evidence allows questions focusing on areas that would bring out facts, not questions that would elicit expected responses.

The judge prevented the prosecutor from asking direct questions.

Mr. Aliyu, during cross-examination, asked Ms. Madu if she was aware that apart from the ulcer, she told the court that her daughter knew she had other health problems.

She answered in the negative and said that she knew that the case was under investigation, but that she did not know the result of the investigation carried out by the police.

When Imana attempted to re-examine Ms Madu, Mr Aliyu objected and said there was no ambiguity in the question she was trying to ask.

The court, at this point, discharged the witness and called the next witness, Favour, the deceased sister, as a second witness for the prosecution.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that during Monday’s proceedings, other family members of the deceased singer were in court.

Background

Judge Njideka Nwosu-Iheme had on June 3 ordered Mr Nwachukwu to be remanded in custody at Kuje Correctional Center and set Thursday and Friday for a hearing after pleading not guilty to the alleged homicide charge against him. him by the Attorney General of the Federation.

He was therefore remanded in custody pending the hearing and the decision of the

23 charges bordering on domestic violence and homicide brought against him.

Although the defendant appeared in court, the judge was absent from Thursday’s proceedings and court officials said they could not disclose the reason for her absence.

They also said the court had set June 20 and 21 for the hearing.

Nigerian police arrested Mr Nwachukwu after his wife died on April 8, following widespread allegations from their children, family and colleagues that he beat her, leading to her death.

According to the prosecution, the crime he allegedly committed contravenes Sections 104 and 379 of the Criminal Justice Administration Act 2015 (ACJA), Section 221 of the Penal Code and the Criminal Justice Act 2015. the prohibition of violence against the person (VAPP).

The charge read in part: “That you Peter Nwachukwu, 56, male, on 8th April at Aco Estate, opposite Police Station, Lugbe, Abuja, FCT, within the jurisdiction of this court, committed an offense namely: culpable homicide punishable by death in that you caused the death of Osinachi N.

“It was caused by your various acts of violence and aggravated assault knowing that his death would be the likely consequence of your act.

“Details of the offence: that you, Peter Nwachukwu, Male, between 14 November 2009 and April 2022 at Aco Estate, Opposite Police Station, Lugbe, Abuja, FCT, within the jurisdiction of this court, committed an Spirit offence: emotional, verbal and psychological abuse of Mrs. Osinachi Nwachukwu (deceased).

“It was caused by humiliating her and making statements like ‘you smell’, ‘you’re crazy’ in front of her in the presence of members of her music team.”

The statement of offense borders on emotional, verbal and psychological abuse contrary to Section 14(1) of the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act 2015 and punishable under the same section of the Act.

The late gospel singer was known for her song “Ekwueme.”

Who is Kieran Rhodes?

Kieran Rhodes is an alternative singer-songwriter and former college baseball player. Kieran found his huge passion for music in high school, after spending his entire childhood training for a career in baseball. Before that, he played baseball 12 months a year, traveling the country for tournaments in hopes of catching the eye of a college scout. As a second baseman, his goal was to make it to a Division 1 varsity team. He spent the next few years completely immersed in developing his craft, learning first to play the piano, then to singing, then creating songs in 2019. He accompanied the jazz band at Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School when he was a junior.

Throughout the transition period, Kieran went from baseball practice to music sessions. His friends laughed at him since he was no longer a pure sportsman. It was a drastic transition, but his instructors were totally supportive of his desire to pursue music, which he is grateful for. His background sets him apart from other Berklee students who have practiced with their instruments since childhood to gain admission to one of the top music universities in the country. Kieran, whose family still resides in Burnt Hills, performed with a band on the main stage at the Albany Tulip Festival last month to a local crowd. Kieran’s voice and falsetto sound similar to Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin in a clip from a separate performance on Facebook.

Kieran has already released eight songs and an EP, “On the Corner of Somewhere Street”, despite only seven years of musical expertise. His EP song, “What Got Into You”, has been listened to over 30,000 times and earned him an honorable mention at the 2021 American Songwriters Competition. Kieran draws inspiration from legends like James Taylor, Randy Newman and Billy Joel . Kieran hopes to tour the world and perform for audiences while honing his voice and talent. It has a laid back, timeless sound that mixes folk, pop and alternative music. He collaborated on a song for the Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible.” Kieran, who is now in his second year of college, is making his television debut as a contestant on the 17th season of “America’s Got Talent.”

After one of the producers watched Kieran perform in Boston, he was offered an audition. He told the Times Union that “AGT” never crossed his mind. When the producer watched him perform, she approached him and said, “I need you on the show.” She marketed it to her executives, who approved of it. And they pulled him right in. It was crazy, and he’s eternally grateful. He was worried before the audition, but not because he was performing in front of 3,000 people at the Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. He was terrified of facing the judges.

The four famous judges who can tell you they don’t like you, according to Kieran, are what make you nervous. This is where he gets nervous. Her mother, professional singer Mia Scirocco, was in the crowd at the audition, which she described as “not your normal audition”. She was delighted with the way her child handled the situation. She was going to be there to encourage him and calm him down. Besides, she really has no memory of what happened. It was terrifying and felt like an out of body experience. Kieran handled it with confidence and grace, according to his mother.

To see Kieran sing his original song, watch Season 17 of “America’s Got Talent” on NBC on June 21 at 8 p.m.

Opponents of the Biden administration’s antitrust enforcement stimulus say antitrust enforcement will lead to slower economic growth. For example, Larry Summers, who has served on the Reagan Council of Economic Advisers and the Obama National Economic Council, tweeted that “Brandeisian hipster antitrust, which the administrator and his appointees flirt with, is more likely to rise than lower prices” and “lead to reduced supply. He also tweeted: “Brandeisian populist antitrust policy will make the US economy more inflationary and less resilient” and “could reduce efficiency.”

Is strict enforcement of antitrust laws bad for the economy? To answer this, I have gathered data on economic growth from 1948 (the earliest available) to the present day. I mark the deadline as 1980, with the adoption of the Consumer Welfare Standard (CWS) under the Reagan administration, which marked the end of vigorous antitrust enforcement.

The red line in the attached graph shows real GDP growth each year before 1980, before the adoption of the SPC standard. The blue line shows real GDP growth from 1980 onwards, as the CWS standard was adopted by subsequent administrations, including Democratic administrations.

The red dotted line represents the average real GDP growth during the pre-SCF era, equal to 3.86%. The blue dotted line shows the average real GDP growth in the post-FCS era, which is 2.56%. The difference between the two means is economically significant (more than 1 percentage point of growth) and statistically significant at the 5% level.

Clearly, a myriad of factors affect real GDP growth. And the adoption of the CWS standard may not have been directly responsible for the decline in average real GDP growth since 1980. But it is dishonest for antitrust status quo defenders such as Summers to argue that the abandonment of CWS will cause a horrible parade for the economy. Economists (including myself) have shown that labor productivity and total factor productivity declined significantly with the adoption of the SPC. We noted that greater enforcement of antitrust laws could spur economic growth, especially to protect workers. As income moves towards workers and away from capital, every dollar of income generated by a business is associated with a higher multiplier effect, resulting in faster growth. Economic theory and empirical analysis suggest that a stronger antitrust policy could benefit the US economy.

The Federal Capital Territory High Court on Monday dropped the culpable homicide case against Peter Nwachukwu for the alleged murder of his wife, Osinachi.

Osinachi, the singer of the famous gospel song Ekwueme, died on April 8 after being allegedly beaten and punched in the chest by her husband, Peter Nwachukwu. However, her husband said that his wife died of lung cancer.



The prosecution was withdrawn by the judge so that his lawyers align to represent him.

Prosecution lawyer Aderonke Imana had informed the court, presided over by Judge Njideka Nwosu-iheme on Monday, when the case emerged that he was due to hear and that they were ready to proceed.

Le rapport de l’agence de presse du Nigéria a déclaré qu’A. Ogbonna had also announced her appearance as a surveillance subtitle for the nominal complainant.

After seven years in a wheelchair and a difficult condition that could have resulted in the loss of his leg, Paul Di’Anno found salvation in Croatia. Since the end of November 2021, Paul has been undergoing treatment in Croatia, where he took his first steps in May after a series of lymphatic drainage treatments and daily physiotherapy. The complicated and long-lasting treatment was initiated by fans and friends who raised significant funds to restore his new life. Castro Pergjoni, owner of the legendary Cart and Horses pub, where Maidens had their first performances with writer and huge Maiden fan Stjepan Juras from Croatia, launched an action which brought together thousands of fans from all over the world.

Juras checked in with the following update on Di’Anno’s upcoming operations:

“Dear fans,

After Paul Di’Anno’s long and intensive recovery in Croatia, and a series of treatments he underwent, the time for the big announcement has finally arrived. You already knew Paul was facing three major surgeries, but now we finally know the dates. Paul Di’Anno will be admitted to hospital on July 5, 2022 and the three surgeries will be performed on him over two consecutive days, after which recovery in hospital will take approximately two to three weeks. Hospital recovery and intensive care is followed by the second part of recovery, which is rehabilitation and relearning to walk, which will be significantly improved in the first days of October, and by the end of 2022, Paul should be able to walk fully.

The first operation, or the installation of the so-called umbrella in the vena cava, will make a team of specialists and vascular surgeons and thus prevent the movement of a large thrombus (blood clot) in the abdomen and a stroke or a potential embolism. The cement removal operations (spacer between the bones) and the fitting of so-called tumor prostheses or custom bone and knee prostheses will be carried out by an expert from the ‘Heatlh Center of Excellence’; prof.dr.sc. Robert Kolundžić, orthopaedist, subspecialty traumatologist of the musculoskeletal system. The operation will be performed at the KBC Sestre Milosrdnice Trauma Clinic or (possibly) at KBC Dubrava.

Paul is very motivated and can’t wait for the biggest change in his life to happen. The doctor who will operate on him is one of the authorities not only in Croatia, but also in Europe, when it comes to surgery of this type, and the operation that Paul will undergo is the most complicated and difficult of all surgeries. orthopedics. Although Paul will be treated by a number of experts and the operations will be performed perfectly, Paul’s biggest “adversary” in all is his own body or circulation. Namely, the circulation in his leg isn’t at an enviable level and with all the effort that’s been made so far, it can’t get much better, but they’ll try hard. This is the greatest danger that threatens Paul and he is aware of it. Almost the same thing happened to him before, when his body rejected the stent, but in this case it’s much worse. If poor circulation suspends wound healing and custom bone rejection occurs, this will be the end of the treatment labeled Plan A.

Plan B would then be a leg amputation, but that doesn’t mean Paul wouldn’t walk. Also, the recovery would be shorter and Paul’s movement better and more reliable. The only difference is that he wouldn’t have his own leg. Paul is aware of all the consequences and is ready for anything. He told us that he had considered this option seven years earlier, but due to a double infection with MRSA, it was impossible to do. Paul is ready for option A and option B, but we all hope that after the barochamber and additional lymphatic drainage at the polyclinic in Ribnjak, the circulation will be better and that Paul’s leg will last and heal and that it will work this year.

Paul has important days of psychological preparation for the operation ahead of him and now he needs the understanding of all the fans and only peace. In a few days, my colleague and friend Kastro Pergjoni will also announce excellent and fantastic news.

On May 22, when Iron Maiden kicked off their 2022 Legacy Of The Beast World Tour in Zagreb, Croatia, bassist Steve Harris and Di’Anno reunited for the first time in years. A video was released with Di’Anno meeting Harris and band manager Rod Smallwood. Di’Anno sang on Iron Maiden’s first two legendary albums, Iron Maiden and Killers. Di’Anno has spent the past few months in the Croatian capital receiving lymphatic drainage treatment ahead of an upcoming knee operation.

A guest on The Metal Voice, Di’Anno recounted the meeting with Harris and Smallwood, calling it “quite emotional”. Check out the interview below.

Di’Anno: “It was great because first I met Steve’s sister, Linda, who I hadn’t seen in about 30 years. And then…Steve was amazing, then Rod too , it’s been my whole year , actually. It was fantastic. It was pretty awesome. It was pretty emotional. If this had been the first time we’d spoken together in 30 years, it might have been a bit weirder. But, like I said, we talk about football and stuff like that, and Steve has called me a couple of times from (his home) in the Bahamas.”

When David Lynch’s bizarre cult melodrama Twin Peaks first aired in April 1990, it delivered an unsettling plot like nothing else on television at the time. Its idiosyncratic script, characters, and visual aesthetic were hugely influential, but its haunting music, co-written by Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti, had arguably the most widespread appeal—and voice whispering its sweet nothings— bitters so seductively belonged to Julee Cruise.

Cruise, who died by suicide at the age of 65, was a performer more accustomed to performing vigorous musical theater numbers when she first met Badalamenti in New York in the early 1980s.

Their first film collaboration was The Mysteries of Love, written for the bizarre classic Blue Velvet, the 1986 film that cemented David Lynch’s twisted vision of the stockade. Lynch couldn’t afford to license his initial choice of music – This Mortal Coil’s spectral siren song, sung by Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser – so he and Badalamenti wrote their own pop reverie equally ethereal orchestral.

Cruise was asked to find a suitable singer – when her initial suggestions were overruled, she took the gig herself, curbing her natural full-throated tendencies to create what became her signature wispy.

She and Badalamenti had even more success with Falling, recorded for her 1989 debut album Floating into the Night. When Lynch used an instrumental version of the track as the resounding theme song to Twin Peaks, it propelled Cruise to unexpected chart success.

When she got the call to appear on Saturday Night Live, she was working as a waitress – instead of calling in sick, she said she called famous. The show’s exposure led to three more solo albums.

Cruise cemented his place in Lynchian lore by appearing in the pilot episode of Twin Peaks, singing Fallout in the city’s bizarre Roadside bar. She made later cameos as the Girl Singer during the show’s original run and also appeared in the follow-up feature Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992) and the late third series, Twin Peaks: The Return (2017), singing The World Spins. from Floating Into the Night in the penultimate episode.

Reflecting on her experience at Twin Peaks, she told the Los Angeles Times that “it was so fun to be a part of something that just went boom!” You didn’t know it was going to do this. What a wonderful surprise life has in store for you.

Julee Ann Cruise was born and raised in the railroad town of Creston, Iowa. His father John was the town dentist; his mother Wilma ran his office. She studied French horn at Drake University in the state capital, Des Moines, before branching out into singing and acting, moving first to Minneapolis and then to New York in the early 1980s, where she appeared in musical theater and sang the role of Janis Joplin in the off. -The Broadway production of Beehive: The Musical of the 60s.

She and Badalamenti first crossed paths when she was cast on a country and western show, but the music they later created had its roots in the 50s pop ballad and tragedy subgenre. teenager characterized by Johnny Remember Me and Tell Laura I. Love her. At first they struggled for recognition, with Badalamenti noting that “even the most forward-thinking stations found it unusual, so it was difficult to get airplay. But when Falling became the main title theme for Twin Peaks, it was a whole different story.

Link Music Lab will feature renowned Iranian singer and nay player Shaho Andalibi with Toronto bassist Scott Peterson for an evening honoring the great Kurdish singer and musician Ali Asghar Kurdistani on June 30, 2022, at the Small World Center. Their legendary voice and unique style influenced traditional Iranian-Kurdish music as one of the first Kurdish singers recorded in Tehran in 1930. The power of Ali Asghar Kurdistani’s compositions continues with elements incorporated into this performance at light of economic conditions and the recent tragic incident in southern Iran. The vast experience of Middle Eastern music shared by Andalibi and Peterson promises a unique revision of Ali Asghar Kurdistani’s music in dialogue with contemporary Iran.

Andalibi’s connection to Kurdish music runs deep, having learned its melodies and modes at a very young age within a well-known musical family in Sanandaj, the capital of the province of Iranian Kurdistan. A prolific performer and musician, he has recorded 22 albums, toured and performed internationally, founded the Andalibi Ensemble and the Andalibi Music Academy in Toronto, and served as director of the Neyzar Music Academy in Tehran. . In 2019, the esteemed multi-instrumentalist and music teacher was a finalist for the Aga Khan Music Awards. Link Music Lab last presented Andalibi in collaboration with Aria Rostami in 2019 for Experimental Link Music Nights.

As an Asiko Afrobeat and Labyrinth Ensemble bassist with a strong jazz foundation, Peterson’s experience with globally diverse music is impressive, from producing with Zimbabwean band Nhapitapi to throat singing for the score by Jonathan Goldsmith for the film Burn Your Maps. Having studied throat singing in Tuva, guitar in Brazil, gamelan in Bali, and composition and piano in Toronto, Peterson will bring a fascinating musical perspective as a composer, producer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist to multiple facets.

Experimental Link Music Nights contemplates the Persian-Canadian experience by invigorating, re-exploring and re-imagining traditional Persian music in contemporary and cosmopolitan Toronto by inviting different musicians from the diaspora to collaborate and perform together. The series will explore the links between identity, culture and musical creation with four concerts in its new season from December to March 2023.

Link Music Lab would like to thank the generous support of Canadian Heritage, the Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council.

Ms Vernon told Lorraine: ‘I would have loved to be there but Ms Bailey, my colleague who was there, she called straight away.

‘He was a great character. That smile was always so charming. He loved music, he loved acting, throughout our school and everyone, every teacher at the Hermitage had a big impact on him.

Reflecting on Harry’s decision to publicly thank his teacher during the show, she added: ‘It was a really nice thing for him to do. The teachers are doing a brilliant job, every teacher has worked so hard.

“And the reward we get comes from the kids in our class and the kids we’ve taught every year before. This is where we get our reward.

“I think there was something special – a sparkle, a sparkle in his eyes, his personality, his character being so there since he was four or five years old. It showed us that he was going to go on to do something really special.

“But I don’t think anyone could foresee how mega and crazy, so huge his career would become. It is simply exceptional.

After a frantic search of the stadium, Ms Vernon was thought to be located and beamed onto the screen, but the teacher has since confirmed she was not at the show.

Harry was lyrical about the impact she had on him during his “formative years”.
