Lara Logan

Lara Logan is a South African television and radio journalist and war correspondent. She was a correspondent for CBS News between 2002 and 2018. In 2019, she joined the Sinclair Broadcast Group. Logan was born in Durban, South Africa, attended high school at Durban Girls' College, she graduated from the University of Natal in Durban in 1992 with a degree in commerce. She went on to earn a diploma in French language and history at Alliance Française in Paris. Logan worked as a news reporter for the Sunday Tribune in Durban during her studies for the city's Daily News. In 1992 she joined Reuters Television in Africa as a senior producer. After four years she branched out into freelance journalism, obtaining assignments as a reporter and editor/producer with ITN and Fox/SKY, CBS News, ABC News, NBC, the European Broadcast Union, she found work with CNN, reporting on incidents such as the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Nairobi and Tanzania, the conflict in Northern Ireland, the Kosovo war. Logan was hired in 2000 by GMTV Breakfast Television as a correspondent.

Days after the September 11 attacks, she asked a clerk at the Russian Embassy in London to give her a visa to travel to Afghanistan. In November 2001, while in Afghanistan working for GMTV, she infiltrated the American-British-backed Northern Alliance and interviewed their commander, General Babajan, at the Bagram Air Base. CBS News offered her a full-fledged correspondent position in 2002, she spent much of the next four years reporting from the battlefield, including war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq embedded with the United States Armed Forces. But she interviewed famous figures and explorers such as Robert Ballard, discoverer of the wreck of the RMS Titanic. Many of her reports were for 60 Minutes II, she was a regular contributor to the CBS Evening News, The Early Show and Face the Nation. In February 2006, Logan was promoted to "Chief foreign affairs correspondent" for CBS News. Logan left CBS News in August 2018; the following year, she joined the Sinclair Broadcast Group on a temporary basis, as a correspondent reporting on the United States-Mexico border.

In late January 2007, Logan filed a report of fighting along Haifa Street in Baghdad, but the CBS Evening News did not run the report. To reverse the decision, Logan enlisted public support. Logan was criticized in June 2010 for her remarks about another journalist, Michael Hastings, her view that reporters who embed with the military ought not to write about the general banter they hear. An article by Hastings in Rolling Stone that month quoted General Stanley A. McChrystal and his staff—comments Hastings overheard while traveling with McChrystal—criticizing U. S. Vice-President Joe Biden and other officials, after which President Obama fired McChrystal as his commander in Afghanistan. Logan told CNN that Hastings' reporting had violated an unspoken agreement between reporters who travel with military personnel not to report casual comments that pass between them. Quoting her statement, "I mean, the question is is what General McChrystal and his aides are doing so egregious, that they deserved to end a career like McChrystal's?

I mean, Michael Hastings has never served his country the way McChrystal has." CNN's former chief military correspondent, Jamie McIntyre, said that what they did was indeed egregious, that her comments "unfortunately reinforced the worst stereotype of reporters who'embed' with senior military officers but are actually'in bed' with them." He went on to quote Admiral Mike Mullen's statement that military personnel must be neutral and should not criticize civilian leaders. Glenn Greenwald of Salon wrote that she had done courageous reporting over the years, but had come to see herself as part of the government and military. Logan and her CBS crew were arrested and detained for one night by the Egyptian Army on 3 February 2011, while covering the Egyptian revolution, she said the crew was blindfolded and handcuffed at gunpoint, their driver beaten. They were advised to leave the country, but were released. On 15 February 2011, CBS News released a statement that Logan had been beaten and sexually assaulted on 11 February, while covering the celebrations in Tahrir Square following Hosni Mubarak's resignation.

CBS 60 Minutes broadcast an interview with her about it on 1 May 2011. She said the incident lasted around 25 minutes, she had been reporting the celebrations for an hour without incident. One of the Egyptian CBS crew suggested they leave, telling her he heard the crowd make inappropriate sexual comments about her, she felt hands touching her, can be heard shouting "stop", just as the camera died. One of the crowd shouted that she was an Israeli, a Jew, a claim that CBS said, though false, was a "match to gasoline", she went on to say that they tore off her clothes and, in her words, raped her with their hands, while taking photographs with their cellphones. They began pulling her body in different directions, pulling her hair so hard she said it seemed they were trying to tear off chunks of her scalp. Believing she was dying, she was dragged along the square to where the crowd was stopped by a fence, alongside which a group of women were camping. One woman wearing a chador p

King Kong Song

Opel Combo

The Opel Combo is a panel van and leisure activity vehicle from the German automaker Opel. The Combo first appeared in 1993, a second generation model was introduced in 2001, the third was manufactured from December 2011 to December 2017, based on the Fiat Doblò; the name "Combo" was applied as a suffix to a three door panel van body style of Opel Kadett E from 1986 until 1993. Opel/Vauxhall joined Groupe PSA in March 2017: the fourth generation Combo, launched in March 2018, shares the platform and bodywork of the Peugeot Rifter and Partner, as well as the Citroën Berlingo; the Combo B and Combo C share platforms, vital components and some body panels with contemporary subcompact Opel Corsas, which used to be a typical pedigree for such a vehicle. The generations are denoted B and C in typical Opel fashion, but Holden applied the codes SB and XC reflecting the relation with SB and XC Holden Barinas; the Opel Kadett Combo was introduced in January 1986, finished production in August 1993. It was based on the Opel Kadett E small family car.

It was built in the United Kingdom, at Ellesmere Port by Vauxhall until January 1989. This was. At the same time, production was transferred to Azambuja and the vans were now built by Opel. In Germany, it was sold with a 1.6 litre diesel unit. The 1.3 petrol unit was changed to a 1.4. In the United Kingdom, the three door estate based van was known as both the Bedford and Vauxhall Astravan, the high roof van as the Bedford Astramax sold as a Vauxhall; the changeover from Bedford to Vauxhall took place on 1 June 1990, as Bedfords were better known as a producer of heavier trucks. The Astramax somewhat better equipped 365L/560L versions; the first generation of Combo, launched in October 1993, was based on the Opel Corsa B, launched six months earlier. The front part is identical with the Corsa, but the platform is extended to accommodate a tall, boxy cargo compartment, capable of carrying a Europallet; the Combo B had symmetrical twin rear doors. These are counted as a single "door". Following the increasing popularity of leisure activity vehicles, Opel launched a five passenger version of the Combo in 1995, called Opel Combo Tour.

It differed from the panel van version by having the cargo section fitted with side windows, a three passenger split folding bench seat. Although Combo's primary market was Europe, it has been sold on other continents, in markets where GM traditionally use Opel derived models; as the Azambuja Opel plant in Portugal is the sole production site of all Combos, all those models were replaced with the Combo C in 2001. The Combo was produced in small numbers by SAIC subsidiary SAIC-Yizheng as the "Shanghai Auto Saibao SAC6420", equipped with the same 1.6 litre engine and five speed manual transmission as the Buick Sail. Built from 2002 until 2005, there was a DeLuxe version available, with alloy wheels and other extras. Holden in Australia launched the SB series Combo in February 1996, it offered the 1.4 litre C14NZ engine, upgraded to C14SE specification in 1997. Sales continued until 2002, although the last SB Combos were built in 2001, but complianced as models of 2002. Production of the Combo A ended in August 2001.

While most competitors severed their connections with their subcompact brethren, Opel decided to base the vehicle on the Corsa again; the use of subcompact Gamma platform constrained the overall width of the vehicle. While the general body shape was updated to fashionable "flush" look, the front part is shared with the Corsa. Compared to previous generation, the Combo C gained sliding rear side doors. Sales began in October 2001. An Opel Combo Tour version was introduced, followed by Opel Combo Tour Tramp, in an effort to attract leisure activity vehicle buyers.

Combo Tour Tramp/Arizona was thought as a more off road recreational vehicle. It features enhanced suspension tuning, increased ground clearance, chassis protection covers and numerous styling details that differentiate it from standard Combo Tours, with the intention to conjure a sturdy, outdoor sports related image; the Combo Tour was not offered by Vauxhall in the United Kingdom. Commercial van versions retained the symmetrical twin rear doors, while the Tour versions have an option of a single tailgate; the tailgate is standard on Tour Tramp/Arizona. In December 2006, the Azambuja, Portugal factory closed down, the production of the Opel Combo transferred to Zaragoza, Spain in 2007. Holden in Australia launched the XC series Combo in September 2002, it offered the 1.6 litre Z16SE engine, upgraded to 1.4 litre Z14XEP specification in December 2004 for the MY05 update. Although production ended in the end of 2011, Holden

Mahwah River

The Mahwah River is a tributary of the Ramapo River in Rockland County, New York and Bergen County, New Jersey in the United States. The Mahwah River runs on a meandering SSW course for about 11 mi from its headwaters just north of the hamlet of Ladentown, New York to its mouth which empties into the Ramapo River in Mahwah, New Jersey, just south of the village of Suffern, New York, the state line, its course runs along the length of the Ramapo geologic fault on the eastern edge of Harriman State Park and below the face of the Ramapo Mountain escarpment. Numerous brooks and streams flowing out of the Ramapo Mountains to the west feed the river as it runs south. For most of its length the river's course is paralleled by U. S. Route 202. Just south of its source at the foot of Lime Kiln Mountain, the Mahwah passes through the Ladentown Swamp, an extensive wetland area, one of the last unspoiled aquifers in Rockland County, New York; as it runs south, the river's course is interrupted by numerous dams forming small lakes.

At a number of points, it remains in its original natural condition. 4.5 mi south of its source the river passes under Sky Meadow Lane and shortly thereafter enters a stretch where it is surrounded by Harriman State Park on both sides. Just south of this the river passes through Kakiat County Park and just beyond the park it passes under Route 202 from west to east. Farther south the river enters Antrim Lake and thereafter it passes under the New York State Thruway, flows through Suffern, south across the state boundary and into the Ramapo River in the town of Mahwah; the Mahwah harbors a population of fish species, including brook trout, brown trout, largemouth bass, catfish, bluegills and chubbs. It hosts waterfowl species, including wood duck in its northern reaches and Canada geese throughout its length. Muskrats, beavers and an occasional otter are seen plying its waters as well. Pileated woodpeckers, wild turkey, whitetailed deer, black bear and coyotes are common in the surrounding woodlands and mountains.

In the Squires Gate section of Suffern there have been significant episodes of flooding during heavy rainfall. There is debate among local citizens over the best way to remediate the problem. Recent down-zoning ordinances pushed by local politicians, which allow for high density development in the vicinity of the river, have tripped off a firestorm of protest by local citizens and precipitated the creation of community action groups dedicated to protecting the Mahwah and its watershed against overdevelopment.
