    Boeing reported a surge in first-quarter profits on Wednesday and lifted its full-year earnings forecast following a strong performance in commercial aviation and defense programs. The results again reflect broad health in commercial aviation as the airline industry enjoys a more stable financial period and as flying becomes much more common in the Middle East, Asia and other developing regions. A big player in China, Boeing has often been seen as vulnerable to a trade war between the United States and China, a possibility that topped Wall Street's list of worries earlier this month but has receded of late amid softer rhetoric between Washington and Beijing.

  • Toronto van attack victims: An 'incredible' charity worker and a sports-loving grandmother news

    An 80-year-old grandmother who loved Toronto sports teams nearly as much as her own family and a "brilliant" young woman who volunteered to build houses in the Dominican Republic were among the 10 people killed when a van plowed down a Toronto pavement. Other victims in Monday's attack included people from Jordan and South Korea, as well as a local college student. Though the names of most of the victims weren't immediately released, details began emerging about several of them as their families began mourning and memorials in their honour grew larger. Alek Minassian, a 25-year-old student, appeared in court in the city on Tuesday morning and was charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder. Anne-Marie D'Amico The first victim was named as a charity worker called Anne-Marie D'Amico.  A friend has spoken of his anger at losing his friend - described by her loved ones as "incredible" and "a star". CBC reported Ms D'Amico's next of kin had been informed, and in an emotional Facebook post, Brodie MacDonald wrote: "I am so angry at the world today and I am so sorry that this happened to you and as tears roll down my face thinking about the incredible person that you were, please know that you made a difference in so many peoples' lives.  "You were a rock, a champion, a soldier, a nurturer, a friend in Dominican. You were what we all needed, when we needed it. "Your love for baseball is what brought you and I close, and it was to be our next meeting point in life as I was going to see you in less than three weeks when the Jays are hopefully going to pound the Red Sox in Toronto.  "Even though you won't be there, I'll hold a beer up for you my friend. Please rest easy." RIP Anne Marie D'Amico.����Wishing your family&close friends strength&peace in this heartbreaking time. #TorontoStrong#TorontoAttack#Toronto#TDot#TheSix A beautiful young life taken far too soon. �� TORONTO STANDS UNITED against hate, intolerance&bigotry!��— Aliya Ciara Scott (@Alicious84) April 24, 2018 According to Ms D'Amico's Facebook profile, she graduated Ryerson University in Toronto, and worked previously at The Badminton and Racquet Club of Toronto. She also volunteered at a Canada-based international humanitarian charity called Live Different. She helped build houses in the Dominican Republic in 2015 and 2017, according to Dave Hamilton, the charity's manager of school partnerships. He said she was "always up for a challenge and really wanted to help people out." It is understood her most recent job was with Invesco Canada, and the company's president Peter Intraligi is said to have confirmed her passing in a statement to CBC.  In it, he said: "Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those impacted by this tragic event. "I can now confirm that unfortunately one of our employees has succumbed to her injuries. Out of respect for her and her family, we will not be providing any further comments." Dorothy Sewell Dorothy Sewell, was an 80-year-old great-grandmother of three and an avid fan of Toronto’s Blue Jays professional baseball club and the Maple Leaf National Hockey League team. “The best grandmother anyone could have asked for,” her grandson, Elwood Delaney said in a statement to The Telegraph. He also had harsh words for the man Toronto police have charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder. Dorothy Sewell, seen on the left with her family Credit: Elwood Delaney “Alek Minassian you are very lucky you are in a jail on the other side of the country, cause If I was there you would be in the ground,” Mr Delaney wrote on Facebook. “Thanks to you I had to tell my 3 children and my wife that cause of you they will no longer get to talk to Nan on there [sic] birthdays or Christmas. I love you Dorothy Sewell. You will always be loved and your love for sports will always be with me while I cheer with you. Go Toronto Go. Love you Nan.” Munir Najjar Munir Najjar was visiting Toronto from Jordan to see his son when he died in Monday’s attack. “RIP Munir, you lived as a peace man, a good father to your family and mine,” according to a Facebook post from Ahmad Kamleh. “Evil took you from us, God[‘s] face will kiss you, To God we Belong and to him we return.” Mr Kamleh, who self-identifies on Facebook as a native of East Jerusalem and the chief executive officer of a chemical-distribution company called Technochem Corp., wrote on Tuesday that he hoped God would give Mr Najjar a "better home” and that “the hate that took you from us will give us enough love.” Jordan's embassy in Ottawa is in contact with Najjar's family, according to state-run news agency Petra. No other information about Najjar was released.

    The joint attack carried out by the United States, United Kingdom and France on April 14 in Syria—targeting three sites related to Assad’s chemical weapons program—was a firm reaction and punishment for Assad’s continued use of chemical weapons against Syrian civilians. What singled out this chemical weapons attack from others Assad carried out over the past year was that it was not limited to the use of chlorine. The large number of civilian casualties and the fact that sarin nerve agent was mixed with the chlorine sparked the second military response by the Trump administration—this time together with the United Kingdom and France—with the aim of upholding the well-established international norm against the use of chemical weapons.

  • 'Golden State Killer' case: Ex-policeman arrested over 1970s murder spree after DNA breakthrough news

    Police in California have arrested a former police officer believed to be the "Golden State Killer", apparently solving a notorious decades-old mystery over the identity of the man behind dozens of rapes and multiple murders in California in the 1970s and 1980s. Joseph James DeAngelo, 72, was arrested at his home and he initially was charged with eight counts of murder and could face dozens more charges, authorities said. Anne Marie Schubert, Sacramento County district attorney, was joined by officials from across the state and relatives of victims on Wednesday to announce that DNA evidence developed in the past six days had led to his arrest. She added he had lived for more than three decades on a quiet suburban street in Citrus Heights. Neighbours said DeAngelo had been living in the neighbourhood for 30 years and described him as a “relatively nice guy” who was prone to “cursing outbursts you could hear down the street.” Police and television crews at DeAngelo's house in Citrus Heights, California The Golden State Killer, also known as the "East Area Rapist" and "Original Nightstalker," is suspected of carrying out at least 12 murders and 45 rapes in California between 1976 and 1986, according to the FBI.  The armed and masked prowler sneaked in through windows at night and surprised sleeping victims who ranged in age from 13 to 41. When encountering a couple, he was known to tie up the man and pile dishes on his back. He threatened to kill both victims if he heard plates crash to the floor while he raped the woman. He then ransacked the house, taking souvenirs, notably coins and jewellery before fleeing on foot or bicycle. Despite an outpouring of thousands of tips over the years, DeAngelo's name had not been on the radar of law enforcement before last week, Ms Schubert said. "We knew we were looking for a needle in a haystack, but we also knew that needle was there," she said. "It was right here in Sacramento." A break in the case and the arrest came together in "light speed" during the past six days, Schubert said, though authorities refused to reveal what led to DeAngelo. Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones, left, talks to reporters about the arrest Joesph James DeAngelo, seen in photo, on suspicion of committing a string of violent crimes in the 1970s and 1980s Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones said detectives with "dogged determination" were able to get a sample of DNA from something DeAngelo discarded, though he wouldn't say what the item was. The genetic material was not a match, but there were enough similarities for investigators to return for more and they said they were able to get a conclusive match. After watching DeAngelo for several days, deputies took him by surprise on Tuesday. "It looked as though he might have been searching his mind to execute a particular plan he may have had," but never had time to act, Jones said. DeAngelo was arrested on suspicion of committing double-killings in Sacramento and Ventura counties and later charged with four counts of murder in Orange County, officials said. Ventura County District Attorney Gregory Totten said prosecutors would seek the death penalty. The Golden State Killer was the subject of "I'll Be Gone in the Dark," a best-selling book by Michelle McNamara. McNamara died two years ago at the age of 46 but her book helped spark renewed interest in the case. Michelle McNamara, and her husband, comedian Patton Oswal Credit: AP DeAngelo was once a policeman, who was reportedly fired from Auburn police in 1979, accused of stealing a can of dog repellent and a hammer from a Sacramento shop.  The city manager was quoted in a newspaper article as saying that DeAngelo was dismissed after he “failed to answer any of the city’s investigations and did not request an administrative hearing.” At one point back in the 1970s, DeAngelo asked his brother-in-law what he thought about the crime spree committed by the person then best known as the East Area Rapist, reported.  DeAngelo is believed to be originally from Bath, New York. He served in Vietnam after graduating from Folsom Senior High School in June 1964 and on his return completed an associate’s degree with honours in police science at Sierra College. He then graduated from California State University at Sacramento with a degree in criminal justice. At some point, he had also interned with the Roseville Police Department.

The study in more than 300,000 people in Britain found that those diagnosed with dementia were almost a third more likely to have been prescribed so-called anticholinergic medicines to treat depression and certain bladder conditions between four and 20 years earlier. "What we don't know for sure is whether the medication is the cause" of the dementia, said George Savva from the University of East Anglia's School of Health Science.
