It's got a muddled structure that jumps all over the place, twee storybook narration, and a lack of satisfying payoff. It would have been fun if the time-hopping was re-contextualizing a narrative that viewers originally found satisfying, but instead, it robs scenes of any meaning as they happen, and often stops dead any sense of propulsion. The film's got three and a half solid action scenes, a lot of gumption, and a fun hook in a protagonist that never speaks. I really hate ragging on a film that was originally meant to be a pitch trailer.
On the Monday Carron met Adams and Gibney at the house of an ex-prisoner,Jimmy McGivern, on the Catholic Ballygawley estate, in the townof Dungannon, where the returning office was situated. He wentto lodge the papers with Gibney at about 11 A.M.There were no problems. Maguire had already lodged hispapers. The question was whether he would now withdraw beforethe 4 P.M. deadline.
In Anderson Crescent, in a Catholic enclave within Derry's predominantlyProtestant area of Waterside, Joanna Mathers was going from doorto door, collecting census forms. An honours graduate from Belfast'sQueen's University and married to a farmer, she had given up ajob with the Town and Country Planning services in the city tobring up her 2½-year-old son, Shane. To make some pin money,she had volunteered to help with the census. She had just gotup to Patrick McLaughlin's house in Anderson Crescent when a maskedman danced up to her, snatched the clipboard she was holding withone hand, put a gun at her head with the other and fired. Thegirl squealed and ran past McLaughlin, who was standing at thedoor. He slammed it shut, but the gunman crashed through it and,waving the gun, grabbed the census forms before disappearing.Inside the house Joanna was dead.
Polling day arrived. The booths had their impersonation agentsfrom the two sides, watching eagle-eyed for dead citizens whosepassion for voting from the grave was a byword in Fermanagh-SouthTyrone. Adams did a tour of all the booths and was startled bythe animosity shown by Loyalists - living in something of a politicalcocoon, in the 'ghettos' of West Belfast, he had had little todo with ordinary Protestants since the 'Troubles' had startedand had not fully appreciated the depths of hatred felt towardsthe IRA and its associates.
The commission was established to monitorand act under the European Convention on Human Rights, enactedand signed by twenty states in 1953. Staffed by about twenty lawyers,housed in a modern building behind the Council of Europe Assemblyin Strasbourg, their brief was to investigate complaints, mediatebetween complainants and, where they were unable to resolve theissue, to refer the matter to the European Court of Human Rightsfor a ruling, or to the Council of Europe's Foreign Ministersfor diplomatic action. In June 1980 they had rejected a complaintover the H-Blocks issue, brought by Kieran Nugent and three otherprisoners, ruling that there were no grounds under internationallaw for the claim to political status and that conditions in theprison were self-inflicted, and therefore no cause for complaintagainst Britain. But at the same time they had criticized Britain,expressing concern 'at the inflexible approach of the Stateauthorities which has been concerned more to punish offendersagainst prison discipline than to explore ways of resolving sucha serious deadlock'. It was the phrase which Haughey and Humebelieved could give the opening to Britain to now act - becauseit could be presented as a reaction to the commission, ratherthan to the hunger strike. The problem was that the commission'sconstitution specified that complaints could only be lodged bysignatories to the Convention, or 'any person, non-governmentalorganization, or group of individuals claiming to be the victimsof the violation'. So the complaint had to come from the prisoners- preferably Sands. Hume, with his powerful contacts in Europe,had nearly persuaded the commission to allow two members, theDanish acting president, Professor Carlaage Norgaard, and a Norwegian,Professor Torkel Opsahl, to act as mediators. But a row had ensuedat the commission's Strasbourg headquarters, with other membersprotesting that such an informal initiative might damage the commission'sstanding. So Haughey decided he would have to get a formal requestout of the Sands family for the commission to intervene.
After eight hours in the Kesh the commissioners gave up. Theyslipped out of the prison through a side entrance, avoiding ademonstration by 200 followers of the Reverend Ian Paisley, whowere waving placards demanding. 'Did 2,000 dead have human rights?'and brandishing hangmen's nooses. Later the commissioners issueda three-paragraph statement, pedantically headed: 'Marcella Sandsv United Kingdom number (Application number 9338/81) It said Mr Sands did not wishto associate himself with his sister's complaint, although hewas prepared to see them in the company of three colleagues. 'Afterfurther consultations the delegation concluded that in the circumstancesit was not possible to see and confer with Mr Sands and accordinglyno meeting took place.'
Fr Magee was an Irishman, born in Newry in 1936. He had studiedphilosophy in Cork before going out to Nigeria, working therefor six years as a missionary teacher. In Nigeria he had beenbefriended by Cardinal Sergio Pignedoli, then papal delegate inLagos, under whose patronage he was to have a meteoric careerin the Church. Ordained in Rome in 1962, he was invited by CardinalPignedoli to join the Secretariat for Evangelization of Peoplesin Rome. In 1975 he had been appointed personal secretary to PopePaul VI, a personal friend of Cardinal Pignedoli. Fr Magee establisheda close relationship with Paul VI, who mentioned him in his will,but after his death was asked to remain secretary to John PaulI. It was Fr Magee who found the pontiff dead in his bed, thirty-threedays later. When the Polish Paul II was elected he also askedFr Magee to stay on, explaining: 'I don't know anyone around hereat the Vatican.' Later the Pope appointed a Polish priest to sharethe secretarial duties with him.
Canadian authorities said Monday that one of the two men suspected of stabbing to death 10 people in an Indigenous community and a nearby town in Saskatchewan has been found dead, and the other is still being sought. Police had charged both suspects with murder and other counts as the massive manhunt following one of the nation's deadliest mass killings entered its second day.
One of the suspects, Damien Sanderson, 31, was found dead Monday outside a house being examined on the James Smith Cree Nation, with "visible injuries" that police said did not appear self-inflicted. His exact cause of death will be determined by the Saskatchewan coroners office, commanding officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP Rhonda Blackmore told reporters at a press conference on Monday.
The attack is among the deadliest mass killings in Canadian history. The deadliest gun rampage in the country's history happened in 2020, when a man disguised as a police officer shot people in their homes and set fires across the province of Nova Scotia, killing 22 people. A man used a van to kill 10 pedestrians in Toronto in 2019. But mass killings are less common in Canada than in the United States.
Deadly mass stabbings are more rare than mass shootings, but have happened around the world. In 2014, 29 people were slashed and stabbed to death at a train station in China's southwestern city of Kunming. In 2016, a mass stabbing at a facility for the mentally disabled in Sagamihara, Japan, left 19 people dead. A year later, three men killed eight people in a vehicle and stabbing attack at London Bridge.
The deadly attack occurred at the end of the first day of a two-day street festival to celebrate Lunar New Year. The event, which began on the eve of Chinese New Year, is one of the largest free street fairs in Southern California, typically drawing crowds of over 100,000 visitors and over a hundred food vendors, performances and merchants.
Pan de muerto, or bread of the dead, is a typical sweet bread (pan dulce), often featuring anise seeds and decorated with bones and skulls made from dough. The bones might be arranged in a circle, as in the circle of life. Tiny dough teardrops symbolize sorrow. (Read more about Pan de muerto.)
At 1 p.m., a SWAT team determined that the suspect had a self-inflicted gunshot wound and he was pronounced dead at the scene. The man inside the van was Tran, the mass shooting suspect, authorities said.
Not far from Madrid, there is a large wooden barn. The barn is completely empty except for a dead man hanging from the middle of the central rafter. The rope around his neck is ten feet long and his feet are three feet off the ground. The nearest wall is 20 feet away from the man. It is not possible to climb up the walls or along the rafters. The man hanged himself. How did he do it? 2b1af7f3a8
