London Mayor Opposes U.k. Press Regulation Plans

The cub, not yet named or sexed as it was so young, was born two weeks ago, and the birth captured on hidden cameras in the den. It was the first tiger to be born at the zoo for 17 years. In the early hours of Saturday morning, keepers noticed that they could not see the cub on the den cameras, and raised the alarm. The cub was discovered on the edge of the pool. A postmortem conducted on Sunday confirmed the cub had drowned. It is thought that the mother, Melati, carried the cub outside but keepers are unclear as to how the cub got into the pool as there are no cameras in the wider enclosure. Keepers are reviewing the situation as it was not envisaged that the mother would take the cub outside so early. Curator Malcolm Fitzpatrick said: “We’re heartbroken by what’s happened. To go from the excitement of the birth to this in three weeks is just devastating. “Melati can be a very nervous animal and we didn’t want to risk putting her on edge by changing her surroundings or routines, in case she abandoned or attacked the cub. At the time we thought it was in the best interests of Melati and her cub to allow her continued access to the full enclosure as normal. “We would do anything to turn back the clock, and nobody could be more upset about what’s happened than the keepers who work with the tigers every day. They are devoted to those tigers and are distraught.” London zoo’s Tiger Territory opened in March 2013 and was designed to encourage breeding of the critically endangered sub-species of tiger. The cub is the grandchild of the zoo’s last tiger cub, Hari, the father of Melati. The cub’s father is five-year-old Jae Jae, who is playing no part in taking care of the new arrival.

Virginia’s London sees improvement, but no wins

LONDON London mayor Boris Johnson in a newspaper editorial on Monday spoke out against planned U.K. press regulation following the Leveson Inquiry report late last year. our editor recommends “We are on the verge of eroding the freedom of the press,” Johnson wrote in the Daily Telegraph . “It’s a vigorous, voracious press that keeps our country honest. Regulating the media would undermine its ferocious ability to highlight wrongdoing.” He called a planned royal charter outlining the new regulation a “monstrous folly.” Johnson also suggested that a political expenses scandal led British politicians to call for the Leveson Inquiry, not the phone hacking scandal surrounding Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. “It was the hacking cases that gave them their pretext,” he wrote. Johnson also argued Monday that Britain’s current laws sufficiently protect people from media abuse. “We already have abundant law against obscenity or breach of official secrets. We have laws against libel and defamation, against bugging, hacking, theft, bribery of public officials,” he wrote. “We have a growing tort of breach of privacy. We have no need of some new body backed by statute…and it is wrong in principle.” Concluded the London mayor: “You either have a free press or you dont.

Virginia ran for 242 yards, but got stuffed on consecutive plays from inside the Terps’ 2 in the first quarter. It was one of four trips inside the Maryland 20 that ended with Vozenilek kicking a field goal. “It is disappointing knowing that maybe if one of those field goals had turned into a touchdown, we would have won the game,” right guard Jay Whitmire said Monday. On defense, Maryland gained 468 yards, none more damaging than the 47-yard pass backup quarterback Caleb Rowe completed to Deon Long on third-and-22. Long was double-covered on the catch, but still came down with the ball on the game-winning drive. “We just didn’t take advantage of the opportunities that were presented before us,” linebacker Henry Coley said. “We got our hands on a few balls, we misjudged some balls and we had a few mental errors out there. It was just different people at different times, but it ended up with us losing the football game.” The Cavaliers also won the turnover battle 3-0, but converted the takeaways into just 6 points. In many ways, their 2-4 record feels a lot like their 2-4 mark at this point last season, quarterback David Watford said. Still, having been through it and having seen the team fall apart, there is resolve. “As a team we just have to stick together,” he said.

Virginia coach London looks to turn improvements into wins when Cavaliers play surprising Duke
