Oklahoma Awards Funds to Enhance Local Bases

By on September 13, 2019

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Oklahoma Strategic Military Planning Commission (OSMPC) last week approved a $180,000 grant for a concrete apron with built-in tie-down points at Enid Woodring Regional Airport, a project intended to support Vance Air Force Base.The apron, which would be used to park military or civilian aircraft that remain overnight at the airport, would be built between the airport terminal and the joint use civilian-military hangar. Now, aircraft must be parked on an aging ramp far from the terminal if there isn’t any room in the hangar, reported Enid News.“We have to have a place to park them without putting them on the south ramp away from the terminal building,” said Mike Cooper, military liaison for the city of Enid and chairman of the OSMPC. Vance is about 8 miles from the airport.Enid also plans to receive about $300,000 from the Federal Aviation Administration for the project.The commission approved funding for four other projects as well:road access improvement at an alternate gate for Altus AFB;an enhanced use lease project at an industrial park for a facility for the McAlester Army Ammunition Plant;road access improvement at Tinker AFB; androad access improvements to help the Air National Guard unit based at Tulsa International Airport attract the F-35.All of the allocations, which are subject to approval of the state budget by the Oklahoma Legislature later this session, were in the $180,000 range, according to the story.“The priority is on the F-35, but at the same time we are still keeping focus on everyone else working their protection and enhancement, increasing the mission and cutting costs,” said Cooper.last_img read more

Tech world raids Wall Street talent Uber grabs bankers

By on September 5, 2019

first_imgThree mid-level bankers in Goldman Sachs Group Inc’s (GS.N) technology investment banking group in San Francisco have left to take positions at ride service company Uber Technologies Inc in recent months, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.The bankers are the latest to leave Wall Street banks for Silicon Valley startups, where the lure of more flexible hours – and in some cases stock options and share grants – can be hard to resist. For tech companies, having bankers on staff can help smooth the path to an initial public offering and other capital raisings.Uber, currently valued at around $51 billion, said in August that it expected an IPO within 18 to 24 months. It has already raised $7.4 billion from multiple financing rounds, and is the biggest so-called “unicorn” – the term for privately held tech startups worth $1 billion or more – that has yet to go public.Goldman does not disclose attrition figures, but it has lost enough employees to startups, private equity firms, and other companies in recent years that it announced earlier this month a series of changes designed to help it retain more junior employees at the analyst and associate level, including promoting them faster. It has also set up a task force to help it retain mid-level employees who hold the vice president title.Spokespeople for Goldman and Uber both declined to comment.The increasing attraction of other fields for Wall Street bankers underscores how increased regulation after the financial crisis has weighed on employees’ potential earnings from careers in the sector.There is a lack of publicly available data documenting how many people have left the big banks, but there have been a series of high profile exits, including Ruth Porat, former chief financial officer at Morgan Stanley (MS.N), who earlier this year took a similar role at Google parent Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL.O), and Michael Evans, former vice chairman and head of Asia at Goldman, who became president of China e-commerce company Alibaba Group Holding (BABA.N) in August.A vice president in Wall Street investment banking can get paid $500,000, including bonus, while a mid-level corporate development employee at a technology company like Uber might earn closer to $200,000, recruiters said. The banker’s salary will often fluctuate depending on how the deals and capital raising areas are doing in a particular year. Bankers may take pay cuts to move to Silicon Valley, but there is often the appeal of a better work-life balance and the opportunity to work at fast-growing private companies that can offer shares or stock options, and therefore the possibility of big IPO paydays for senior staff. Those gains can sometimes more than make up for the reduced salaries.HARVARD PIPELINESome younger workers who would have been expected to head to Wall Street in the past are avoiding banks altogether. At Harvard Business School, for example, 20 percent of graduating students from the class of 2015 said they were taking jobs at technology companies, up from 11 percent in 2011, according to the school’s employment report.While 31 percent of students said they were going to work for financial services companies, about three quarters of that group went into venture capital, private equity and leveraged buyout firms. The numbers going into investment banking and sales and trading, the traditional focus of firms like Goldman, halved to 5 percent, from 10 percent in 2011.Banks may not like losing employees, but they would rather lose them to clients than to competitors, said Noah Schwarz, a senior recruiter at headhunters Korn Ferry. A banker that goes to a client is “viewed as a ‘good leaver,'” Schwarz said.The three Goldman employees who joined Uber – Ian Kleinfield, Prabir Adarkar, and Chris Lapointe – did not return emails and LinkedIn messages seeking comment.Uber has hired a number of senior employees from Goldman’s technology investment banking group before, including finance chief Gautam Gupta and corporate development head Cameron Poetzscher.The ride service company often hires bankers for corporate development. They focus on plotting the company’s strategy and handling financial transactions including capital raising.Some of the bank’s employees would know Uber’s finances well as Goldman helped it to raise $1.6 billion by selling convertible securities to Goldman wealth management clients this year.Former Goldman employees on the engineering side have also played key roles in creating the formulas that Uber uses to determine how much it should charge for rides at any given time based on demand, recruiters said.Uber has relationships with a number of other Wall Street banks. They include Morgan Stanley, which was the lead arranger of a $2 billion line of credit for the company, also this year.last_img read more

PM urges US to help stop Rohingya pushin by Myanmar

By on September 3, 2019

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday urged the United States to put pressure on Myanmar to stop pushing-in Rohingya nationals to Bangladesh, report agencies.She made the call as US acting assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asian affairs Alice Wells paid a courtesy call on the premier at her office.”We have given shelter to a huge number of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh on humanitarian grounds and it’s a big problem for us … So I call upon you to mount pressure on Myanmar in this regard,” the prime minister’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim quoted her as saying while briefing reporters after the meeting.The press secretary said the US assistant secretary of state wanted to know from the prime minister whether there is any political dialogue between Bangladesh and Myanmar on resolving Rohingya problem.In reply, the prime minister said: “Our foreign office is in contact with the Myanmar authorities.”Wells, also acting special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, expressed the US’s interest to work with Bangladesh to combat terrorism and highly appreciated Bangladesh government’s initiatives for curbing terrorism.In this connection, Sheikh Hasina reiterated Bangladesh “zero tolerance policy against terrorism. “We won’t allow our land to be used for carrying out terrorist acts in other countries,” she said.The prime minister renewed her call to repatriate death-row convicted killers of Bangabandhu who are now staying in the USA.While talking about Bangladesh’s impressive development in different sectors under her leadership, Sheikh Hasina said the main aim of her government is to strengthen rural economy.On promoting private sector, the prime minister said her government has made open all the sectors in private sector.Pointing out that the country’s media is enjoying total freedom, she said the media is freely criticising the government and there is no interference from the government here.In this connection, Sheikh Hasina said there are 750 daily newspapers in the country. “We have given permission to 44 TV channels in the private sector and 24 of them are now functioning,” she said.Elaborating her government’s various steps for ensuring women empowerment, the premier said her government has ensured women participation in all spheres of the state.She mentioned that the country’s women are now in very high position in all sectors like administration, judiciary, education, armed forces and law- enforcement agencies.While talking about the bilateral trade between Bangladesh and the USA, Sheikh Hasina said the volume of trade between the two countries increased manifolds from only 25 million US dollars in 1996.The US assistant secretary of state pointed out that the economic relations between the two countries have developed significantly and mentioned that US is the largest market of Bangladeshi RMG products.The US assistant secretary of state highly praised Bangladesh’s stunning socio-economic development, especially attaining 7.24 per cent GDP growth, under the leadership of prime minister Sheikh Hasina.The prime minister’s international affairs advisor Gowher Rizvi, principal secretary Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury and the US charge d’affaires in Dhaka were present on the occasion.last_img read more

11 Tabletop RPGs That Need To Make A Comeback

By on September 1, 2019

first_imgOne of the few truly great trends in 2017 was the return of tabletop role-playing. Dungeons & Dragons got a boost from Stranger Things, but TSR’s fantasy franchise isn’t the only game in town. Back in the glory days, there were dozens of other competing pen and paper RPGs for the true geek’s attention. If you didn’t want to swing a sword and cast a spell, you could travel to the far future, or the Old West, or dozens of other places and times.Many of these role-playing games have faded into the mists of history. But with the medium undergoing a renaissance, the time is right to bring them back. Here are eleven of our picks for old-school tabletop RPGs that could get an update for the 21st century and be sweet to play.AdChoices广告Marvel Super HeroesThis is definitely a sentimental pick, because the Marvel Super Heroes role-playing game was the first one I ever played, my gateway drug into the wider world of serious nerd pursuits. Released by TSR in 1984, it was one of the mechanically simplest games of its era, with everything you needed to play out a superhero slugfest in the 16-page “Battle Book.” The system exclusively used two d10s for percentile rolls, making it easy to understand and expand on, and the character creation was robust enough to let you make up your own heroes and villains all day. With the booming success of Marvel’s movies, it’d be great for somebody to publish an updated version.Star Wars: The Role-Playing GameWhat better introduction to the fascinating world of pen and paper role-play than the Star Wars universe, currently enjoying its biggest resurgence in popularity ever? 1987’s Star Wars: The Role-Playing Game, released by West End, was not only fun to play but also helped define the limits of the franchise’s Extended Universe, with lots of planets and alien races appearing here for the first time. Over 140 supplements and adventures were published for the game, but West End went bankrupt in 1998 and the system was lost to the ages.Aftermath!The 1980s were the peak of atomic hysteria, when we believed that the Russkies could press the button at any minute and send us into a hell of nuclear fire. Several post-apocalyptic tabletop RPGs came out during the decade, but one fondly-remembered is Aftermath, which cast gamers as survivors of a nuclear apocalypse scrounging for food and supplies in a radioactive wasteland. Like many FGN titles, it boasted a complex ruleset that did away with “levels” in favor of a more robust skills-based system, and updates were released for it until 2010.Street Fighter: The Storytelling GameAs the 90s wore on, electronic entertainment started to supplant pen and paper RPGs. No value judgment there, it’s just what happened. So designers turned to this new world to inspire their creations, with results like Street Fighter: The Storytelling Game. Produced by White Wolf, this 1994 title gave you everything you needed to roll your own World Warrior and battle against other brawlers using a variety of martial arts styles. There’s a remarkably robust fan community for this game, and with Capcom working to drum up interest in SFV it could be time for a comeback.Powers & PerilsAvalon Hill was the name in wargaming in the early 1980s, and when Gary Gygax approached them about publishing Dungeons & Dragons they turned him down flat. That was a mistake, so when profits from tabletop role-playing beckoned they responded with one of the most complex and detailed fantasy systems of the decade. 1984’s Powers & Perils was beloved by hardcore grognards for its wild complexity – the game featured multiple different skill systems with individual resolution rules, tables for all kinds of events and five separate rulebooks. It was a commercial failure, but we’d love some enterprising soul to make another run at it.Castle FalkensteinThere’s no rule that says dice are required for tabletop role-playing. Castle Falkenstein, released by R.Talsorian Games in 1994, dispensed with all the rolling in favor of using a standard deck of playing cards to resolve randomness. The title’s unique pseudo-steampunk world takes you to a Victorian era where anachronistic technology mingles with elves and faeries. The card mechanism is interestingly complex, with different suits used to accomplish different actions, and it was a breath of fresh air in the grim White Wolf-dominated RPG world of the early 90s.Over The EdgeSubtitled “The Role Playing Game Of Surreal Danger,” Over The Edge was both thematically and mechanically interesting. Taking place on an imaginary island called Al Amarja, players become embroiled in interlocking conspiracies and try to survive on the mean streets. This was a perfect venue for an enterprising and imaginative DM to really go crazy, and although the company that produced it, Atlas Games, is still in business they don’t seem to be doing much with the franchise past a 20th Anniversary edition a few years back.Bunnies & BurrowsRole-playing games take inspiration from all manner of sources, and one of the most unusual early examples was 1976’s Bunnies & Burrows. Cribbing the setting of Richard Adams’s novel Watership Down, players roll up intelligent rabbits who must contend with both natural perils and the incursion of mankind into their wild warrens. It was the first tabletop RPG to let players act as non-humanoid creatures, and it maintains a cult following to this day despite the often bizarre and ridiculous art of the original rulebook.BushidoOriginally published in 1979, Bushido predated America’s fascination with Japanese culture by at least a decade. The game let players take on a variety of roles in a fictionalized Nippon, from Yakuza gangsters to shadowy ninja and Taoist magic users. One thing that made it interesting was its extremely hierarchical structure, where loyalty and honor were just as important as successful dice rolls. It got great reviews in its day but was also criticized for excessive complexity, a common issue with early tabletop RPGs.Attack Of The MutantsIf you read Marvel comics in the 1980s, you probably remember the lurid full-page ads for Attack Of The Mutants, a board game with role-playing elements created by Yaquinto Publications. For just two bucks, you could get their catalog and a cheapie version of the game, which saw players team up against radioactive college students storming their building. It was fairly complex and fun for such a low price, and just looking at the advertising art makes us nostalgic.ParanoiaScience fiction had been fertile territory for role-playing for some time before Paranoia was released in 1984. But the game, designed by Greg Costikyan, Dan Gelber, and Eric Goldberg, took a darkly different view of the future. Set in a dystopian society ruled with a chrome fist by an artificial intelligence. Players act both as “troubleshooters” for the Computer, hunting down resistance elements and terminating them, as well as members of the resistance. Needless to say, death comes early and often, which is why every character has six clones to replace them. Crammed with morbid humor and style, Paranoia just got a Kickstarter-funded reboot. Pick up a copy and tell us how it feels now that we’re actually in the future. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

KMC set to bolster antilarvae drive in view of incoming monsoon

By on August 31, 2019

first_imgKolkata: In view of the forecast of rain in Kolkata in the next 48 hours, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has decided to intensify its anti-larvae drive.Senior KMC officials said that special cleaning drives will be held in the areas that have recorded more rainfall. Empty plastic cups and bottles, used tyres and empty containers work as mosquito breeding grounds. Despite campaigns to create awareness against dengue and malaria, many people have a tendency to not throw used cups and bottles into waste bins. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsUnused chairs and tables are kept on the rooftops of many offices, despite requests to clean them up. The civic authorities cannot clean the garbage of individual office premises and have to depend on the authorities. “We have requested the authorities to destroy the used and broken furniture kept on the rooftops but our requests have fallen flat. The sweepers can clean the premises but cannot go and clean the rooftops,” a KMC official said. He said cooperation of all sections of people is required to keep the city free from dengue and malaria. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedHe said the KMC Health department teams have been kept ready and they will request people through public address systems, not to store water in containers for more than three days at a stretch. The underground reservoirs and overhead tanks should be properly covered and no empty plastic cups, glasses and bottles should be thrown in the open.The KMC doctors have requested people to visit clinics if they suffer from fever for three days or more. “The examination of blood is free and if either malaria or dengue is found, medicines are given free of cost. The dengue clinics have well trained technicians and doctors,” they said.last_img read more

John Wayne used to Fetch Wyatt Earps Coffee

By on August 30, 2019

first_img“Earp was the man who had actually done the things in his life that I was trying to do in a movie. I imitated his walk; I imitated his talk” – said the famous actor John Wayne. American Western movies portray the early days of the expansion of the American frontier in late 19th century.Inspired by real-life characters and events, directors such as Sergio Leone, John Ford, and Howard Hawks popularized the genre not only in the States but across the world. But there were real gunfights in the American West. And people often heard of stories and legends about cowboys, robbers, and lawmen.Sergio Leone. Photo by Obbino CC BY 2.0Those were the stories that inspired the movies, and the cowboys portrayed by actors. And there is no other character mentioned more often on television or in the movies than Wyatt Earp.He was an interesting and very complex individual who not only inspired movie makers but also influenced the Western genre. He is probably the best-known lawman with an outlaw history.Wyatt Earp at age 21.He was born in 1848, in Monmouth, Illinois. By the age of 13, Earp had run away from home several times in order to enlist in the Union Army during the Civil War, but each time, he was sent back because of his age.According to the legends, he got involved in numerous gun fights but was never hit or injured. He loved the “ladies of the night,” so to say, and often lived in brothels.Wyatt Earp, 1870s.It is believed that one of his three wives used to work as a prostitute in a brothel.In 1872, Earp was arrested three times for “keeping and being found in a house of ill-repute.” Another time, he was jailed for allegedly stealing horses along with two other men. Too impatient to wait for his trial, Earp escaped the jail through the roof.The Northern, Wyatt Earp’s saloon in Tonopah, Nevada, c.1902. Josie Earp may be the woman on the horse at left.He didn’t fancy drinking alcohol but ate ice cream almost every day. And there is a long list of things that Wyatt Earp did.However, he achieved his iconic status after he participated in the gunfight at O.K. Corral, one of the most famous gunfights in American history.John Wayne in Rio Bravo, 1959.Earp spent his last years in Los Angeles where he worked as a technical advisor on several silent cowboy movies. He befriended many actors, among whom were Tom Mix and a 21-year-old Marion Morrison — who later changed his name to John Wayne.John Wayne, 1961.The famous lawman often entertained the people working on the set with tales of the Old West. Once he even drew a sketch of the gunfight at O.K Corral for the director John Ford, who later used it for the fight in his movie My Darling Clementine.Related Video: John Wayne’s Greatest QuotesBut it was John Wayne who mostly enjoyed Earp’s storytelling and fetched him cups of coffee while listening to his tales with gusto, using every detail he heard in his later famous portrayals of cowboys and lawmen. At the time though, his name was still Marion Morrison and he worked as a prop boy.Read another story from us: Hollywood War Heroes – 5 Famous Actors Awarded Medals for their WWII ServiceWyatt Earp died in 1929, at the age of 80, and Hollywood legend says John Wayne was one of his pallbearers.

A Simple Twist of Fate Saved Paul Newmans Life During his WWII

By on

first_imgPaul Newman was born in 1925 in Cleveland, Ohio, the second son of Arthur and Theresa Newman, according to IMDb. His father, who was of Jewish descent, ran a sporting goods store. His mother was a Christian Scientist from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and she had a love of the creative arts which she passed down to young Paul. He began acting in plays in elementary school and never really stopped.Newman in his first film, The Silver Chalice (1954)He’s best known for his acting career, and he played in about 60 films in the course of his 50 years in the business.Despite his incredible body of work, Newman remained very humble about his accomplishments and always believed himself to be lucky to get to do what he did.Those beliefs had their genesis in a time before he became a big Hollywood actor. They had their roots in the period when he served his country during World War II.U.S. Navy portrait of Paul NewmanNewman enlisted in the Navy right after he completed high school, joining the V-12 program at Yale, with hopes of becoming a pilot. Unfortunately Newman was found to be color-blind, which made him ineligible to fly.Instead, he was shipped off to basic training and ended up becoming a gunner and rear-seat radioman for torpedo bombers.He was sent to Barber’s Point in 1944 where he was part of the operation of torpedo bomber squadrons meant to train replacement pilots for the war effort. After that, he was sent to an aircraft carrier, where he was a turret gunner for an Avenger torpedo bomber.Gate at Naval Air Station Barber’s Point as it appeared in December 1958According to Newman’s Own Foundation, one event occurred during his time in the navy that deeply affected his beliefs about humility and luck.When his squadron was in Saipan, attached to USS Bunker Hill, the pilot of the plane Newman was assigned to picked up an ear infection. As a result, the plane was grounded and didn’t go when the rest of the squadron was deployed with the Bunker Hill.USS Bunker Hill (CV-17) at sea in 1945Several days after the deployment, the ship was hit by kamikazes and crippled. Around 400 of the crew died, the few survivors managed to keep the ship afloat and the badly damaged Bunker Hill was decommissioned in 1947. That one simple twist of fate – the pilot’s ear infection – meant the difference between his life and death. It was a fact he remained aware of his whole life. Newman certainly did see some combat during his time in the Pacific, though, and was decorated for it.During his Navy years, he was awarded a Combat Action Ribbon and also Combat Aircrew Wings for his work as a gunner and radioman. His other honors included the American Area Campaign Medal, a Good Conduct Medal, and a World War II Victory Medal.Take a closer look with this video:After the Japanese surrender, he spent the last few months of his active duty service in Seattle, as part of a land-based support unit, and was discharged from the Navy in 1946.Paul Newman on a water taxi in Venice in 1963 Photo by Lmattozz -CC BY-SA 4.0He used the GI Bill to enroll in Kenyon College in Ohio and received BAs in both Drama and Economics. Later, he spent a year at the Yale School of Drama before heading to New York and studying at the Actor’s Studio.The rest of his life is much better known – his prolific acting career, his love of, and involvement with, auto racing, his family life, and his “Newman’s Own” line of salad dressings and pasta sauce.Newman And WoodwardAmerican actor Paul Newman (1925 – 2008) with his wife, actress Joanne Woodward, circa 1963. (Photo by Fotos International/Archive Photos/Getty Images)Of the latter, Newman’s Own has earned well over $100 million – more than he earned in his acting career – and he donated all of it to various charities.In 2005, he also created the Newman’s Own Foundation, with the purpose of supporting military personnel, veterans, and their families.Since 2010, the foundation and Newman’s Own, Inc. have donated over $18.6 million to help the men and women who serve.The foundation has given grants to a wide range of nonprofits who offer services to Veterans and military personnel including education services, entrepreneurship, and other services as well.Read another story from us: The “Bad” from Good, Bad and the Ugly was a WW2 HeroIt’s all part and parcel of Newman’s unfailing awareness both of his own blessings in life and the power of a little bit of luck in transforming lives.last_img read more

Listen We discuss what it means to be a hacker with Adrian

By on August 26, 2019

first_imgWith numerous high profile security breaches in recent years, cybersecurity feels like a particularly urgent issue. But while the media – and, indeed, the wider world – loves stories of modern vulnerabilities and mischievous hackers, there’s often very little attention paid to what causes insecurity and what can practically be done to solve such problems. To get a better understanding of cybersecurity in 2019, we spoke to Adrian Pruteanu, consultant and self-identifying hacker. He told us about what he actually does as a security consultant, what it’s like working with in-house engineering teams, and how red team/blue team projects work in practice. Adrian is the author of Becoming the Hacker, a book that details everything you need to know to properly test your software using the latest pentesting techniques. What does it really mean to be a hacker? In this podcast episode, we covered a diverse range of topics, all of which help to uncover the reality of working as a pentester.

Chasing Ice receives special screening at AmCham

By on August 19, 2019

first_imgMeet likeminded viewers at this special screening. Seating is limited, but if you’re not able to make the 9 a.m. showing, the documentary is also available on local Netflix.“Chasing Ice” screens on June 19 at the AmCham offices, North La Sabana. 9 a.m. Free. Confirm attendance at 2220-2200. Facebook Comments Courtesy Wikimedia CommonsIn the great debate about climate change, James Bolag is a maverick: The renowned photojournalist headed to the Arctic Circle with a team of assistants, set up cameras among the fjords, and filmed time-lapse footage of the melting glaciers.

UNESCO backs Jordan as Jesus baptism site as debate goes on

By on August 18, 2019

first_imgBut some hedge their bets, as the Greek Orthodox Church considers “both sides as holy sites,” said Issa Musleh, a spokesman for the church’s Jerusalem-based patriarch. During Epiphany celebrations, he said, worshippers come from the east and the west and “meet in the river.”___Laub reported from Qasr al-Yahud, West Bank. Associated Press writer Mohammed Daraghmeh in Ramallah, West Bank, contributed to this report.___This story has been corrected to fix the spelling of the name Yisca Harani.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. AL-MAGHTAS, Jordan (AP) — For years, Christian pilgrims have waded into the Jordan River from both its eastern and western banks to connect with a core event of their faith — the baptism of Jesus. The parallel traditions allowed Jordan and Israel to compete for tourism dollars in marketing one of Christianity’s most important sites.But now UNESCO has weighed in on the rivalry, designating Jordan’s baptismal area on the eastern bank a World Heritage site. The U.N. cultural agency declared this month that the site “is believed to be” the location of Jesus’ baptism, based on what it said is a view shared by most Christian churches. In this July 6, 2015 photo, a Christian visitor pours water from the Jordan River over the head of another at the baptismal area on the eastern bank of the river in South Shuna, Jordan, as people, background, gather for their baptism on the western bank at the Israeli-run site located in a part of the West Bank. UNESCO recently designated Jordan’s baptismal area a World Heritage site, over the Israeli-run site of Qasr al-Yahud in the West Bank, which is one of three territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war. Qasr al-Yahud remains under full Israeli military occupation. (AP Photo/Raad Adayleh) Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories The vital role family plays in society Over the years, Israel granted access to pilgrims on religious holidays, and opened Qasr al-Yahud for daily visits in 2011 after removing nearby mines, though thousands remain buried in the area.Jordan opened al-Maghtas in 2002. Archaeological digs there yielded remains of baptismal pools, chapels and monks’ caves — a setting reflected in early pilgrims’ accounts. UNESCO’s experts said the finds are “associated with the commemoration” of the baptism.An eastern baptism site would make sense, some scholars said.John the Baptist had antagonized Jewish authorities in Jerusalem and would likely have preferred to stay out of their reach, across the river, said New Testament professor Ben Witherington at the Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky.Yisca Harani, an Israeli expert on pilgrimage, said that “if there is theological dictum to use one side, I would say the eastern side.” However, Harani said both banks should have been designated as a single site to reflect the meaning of baptism as a journey from the “spiritual desert” to the Holy Land.A number of denominations, including Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox and Lutherans, have written letters of support for the Jordanian side, which three popes have visited since 2000. Top Stories The debate over the baptism site comes at a time of regional turmoil, including the rising threat from Islamic militants who have destroyed ancient artefacts.Jordan’s tourism minister, Nayef al-Fayez, told UNESCO that Jordan is sending a message of tolerance. The kingdom’s Hashemite rulers “who are the direct descendants of the Prophet Muhammad … are the same ones who are protecting one of the holiest sites of Christianity,” he said.The Israeli-Palestinian conflict also looms in the background.The Israeli-run site, known as Qasr al-Yahud, is located in the West Bank, one of three territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war and sought by the Palestinians for a state. The baptism site is in a part of the West Bank that remains under full Israeli military occupation.Extending the World Heritage designation to Qasr al-Yahud would benefit the Palestinians if they ever win statehood, but calling for this now might upset their ally, Jordan.A Palestinian Tourism Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk with journalists, said both banks of the river should receive the same treatment, but that “it’s not easy for us to defend a site we have no control over.” Mesa family survives lightning strike to home The decision drew cheers in Jordan, where the number of tourists has dropped sharply since the 2011 Arab Spring and the rise of the Islamic State group. Israel has kept silent while a Palestinian official said the western baptismal site, located in an Israeli-occupied area sought for a Palestinian state, should have been included.The UNESCO decision also raised eyebrows among some scholars.It “has nothing to do with archaeological reality,” said Jodi Magness, an archaeologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “We don’t have any sites with evidence or archaeological remains that were continuously venerated from the first century on.”Experts who reviewed the Jordanian application for UNESCO acknowledged that there is no solid archaeological evidence confirming that “Bethany Beyond the Jordan,” also known as al-Maghtas, Arabic for baptism, is the authentic site.However, the Jordanian site is of “immense religious significance to the majority of denominations of Christian faith, who have accepted this site as the location” of Jesus’ baptism, the experts wrote in their recommendation.Jesus’s baptism is recounted in New Testament passages as the beginning of his ministry. John 1:28 hints at a possible location, the eastern bank: “These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.” New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The Israeli-run site has attracted larger crowds than its Jordanian counterpart, in part because it is on the classic Holy Land pilgrimage trail. Israeli officials said half a million visitors came to Qasr al-Yahud last year, compared to several tens of thousands on the Jordanian side.On a recent morning, the western site was filled with pilgrims while the eastern one, a few meters (yards) away across the muddy waters, stood largely empty.Ukrainian pilgrims pulled white robes with baptismal motifs — available at a gift shop for $8 — over swimsuits. They walked down steps into the river, some pinching their noses as they submerged themselves.On a slope above them, South African worshippers sang “Glory, Glory Hallelujah” to the sounds of an acoustic guitar.“It doesn’t matter to me much whether it’s on this side of the river or the other side of the river,” said pilgrim Johan Cornelius, 47, from Middelburg, South Africa. “The fact that it is the Jordan River and that Jesus has been here, he’s been baptized by John in this area, that’s of utmost importance to me.”For decades, such scenes were unimaginable. The river once formed a hostile border, and tensions eased only after a 1994 peace treaty.
