City of Rome braces for Catholic hordes

바카라사이트ROME You're expecting hundreds of thousands of guests. You don't know where they're coming from, or when they'll arrive. You don't even know the date of the celebration.

And heaven only knows the name of the man being feted.

Planning for the moment when the next pope is proclaimed to the world, and for the installation ceremony a few days later, is a big-time guessing game. And that adds up to an ungodly logistical headache for the city of Rome.

When white smoke pours out of the chimney atop the Sistine Chapel, throngs of Romans will drop what they're doing and race to St. Peter's Square to cheer the new pope when he steps out onto the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica. If the next pontiff hails from somewhere in Italy, thousands can be expected to pack trains to the capital.

Then there are all the foreigners flying into town to capture the historic moment — an influx that may become overwhelming if cardinals break with tradition and elect the first pope from Latin America, home to 40 percent of the world's Catholics.

A tented field hospital will go up in a square near the Vatican by the eve of the start of the conclave on Tuesday, ensuring that emergency medical treatment will be just around the corner if any pilgrim feels ill or stumbles in the rush to glimpse the new pope.

While there are no other special plans for the conclave itself, Rome authorities have a detailed game-plan for the papal installation that takes place a few days after the pope is elected. The audience for that momentous event in St. Peter's Square will include presidents, prime ministers, religious leaders and tens of thousands of pilgrims, along with the throngs of accidental tourists who happen to be in town.

Police helicopters will whirl overhead. Thousands of extra police will be summoned to duty to keep streets safe and unclogged. Officers on motorized rubber dinghies will glide down the Tiber, ready to dive into the river's murky waters to pick out anything suspicious. Bomb-sniffing dogs will poke their noses down manholes and trash bins in security sweeps along the routes that both VIPs and faithful will cover en route to the square.

As soon as the installation date is known, some 500 Civil Protection volunteers, many of them ready to hop on Segways, will receive phone calls to spring into action. They know the drill for the big day: They'll report to Rome's main train station and the subway stop closest to the Vatican before dawn, helping like good shepherds to channel the flock along designated streets, closed to traffic, that lead to St. Peter's Square.

«Not even the Vatican knows how big the crowd will be,» said Mario Vallorosi, who heads the Rome office of the government's Civil Protection service. «It will be affected by who (the pope) is. If he's a Latin American, he will draw huge crowds.» Conservative crowd estimates, he told The Associated Press, run between 200,000 and 300,000.

Since Benedict XVI gave two-week's notice last month for 카지노 꽁 his resignation — the first in 600 years — there have been a few `'trial runs" of crowd control and security in St. Peter's Square. His final public audience drew so many people (some 150,000 people) there wasn't enough space for all in the vast cobblestone square. Surrounding streets quickly filled up with the overflow, with many faithful watching the pope's final public Vatican appearance on maxi-screens set up for them.

The Vatican's own security force, known as the gendarmerie, is in charge of the crowd inside the square and Italian police handle crowd control just outside the Vatican's boundaries. Security officers from both forces included plainclothes agents dressed up as pilgrims and tourists, listening to the chatter in the square and watching for any unusual movements.

Nearly everything went smoothly for Benedict's last public appearances, although some faithful panicked during the retired pope's penultimate Sunday blessing from his studio window, when thousands of last-minute arrivals tried to squeeze through three narrow openings through a metal fence ringing the edge of the square.

Rome enjoyed at least a few days scramble time for those last papal events. Now, uncertainty surrounding the conclave is adding huge pressure.

`'The biggest concern is lack of information," said Giammario Nardi, the man Rome's mayor has put in charge of hosting special events.

Nardi insisted the city is not privy to any hints from the Vatican about when the papal installation will take place. `'We're operating on predictions," he said, «on what the newspapers tell us.»

Nardi spoke with The Associated Press several hours before the Vatican announced on Friday that the cardinals will start voting for Benedict's successor on Tuesday, a process that could wrap up in a day or two, or might need more time.

With a shudder, Nardi recalled how ambulances were blocked by the narrow streets of the Borgo, the neighborhood near the Vatican, when faithful couldn't squeeze into the square and clogged the streets after John Paul II's death in 2005. In those days crowds turned out day and night to pray at the Vatican and pass by his body as it lay on display in St. Peter's Basilica.

The decision to set up a field hospital this time is fruit of that bad memory, he said.

The city was the scene of bloody clashes with police in the past week

CAIRO Egypt's interior minister on Sunday declared he would not allow vigilantes or militias to take over police duties, while admitting his police force has been strained by daily protests, clashes, criticism, and groups of officers going on strike.

Minister Mohammed Ibrahim was speaking a day after protesters rampaged through Cairo, furious over the acquittal of seven of nine police officers in a trial over soccer violence that left 74 people dead last year. Some 21 civilians received death sentences in the highly charged trial.

Protesters torched a police club and the soccer federation headquarters Saturday. Hundreds of rioters battled police along the Nile river boulevard in an area packed with hotels and diplomatic missions. Two people were killed. The clashes along the river continued Sunday.

There were also limited protests in Port Said, the Suez Canal city where the soccer stadium riot erupted in February 2012. The city was the scene of bloody clashes with police in the past week. They stopped this weekend after police evacuated their headquarters and the military took over.

The unrest coincides with an unprecedented wave of strikes by police over demands for better working conditions, as well as anger over alleged attempts by President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood to take control of the police force.

Ibrahim acknowledged that his force is under strain, but he insisted he will not allow vigilante groups to take over the duties of the force.

«From the minister to the youngest recruit in the force, we will not accept to have militias in Egypt,» Ibrahim said. «That will be only when we are totally dead, finished.»

His declaration followed a statement by a hard-line Islamist group that its members would take up policing duties in the southern province of Assiut because of strikes by local security forces. Lawmakers have raised the possibility of legalizing private security companies, granting them the right to arrest and detain.

«There are groups of policemen on strike. I understand them. They are protesting the pressure they are under, the attacks from the media,» the minister said. «They work in hard conditions and exert everything they can and are not met with appreciation or thanks.»

Egypt's police and internal security forces are widely hated seen as a legacy of the rule of ousted President Hosni Mubarak, when they were notorious for abuses, torture and crackdowns on political opponents, including the Brotherhood.

Ibrahim said the strike is minor and is not affecting the capabilities of the force. Instead, dragging the police into the political dispute between the opposition and the ruling Islamists is exhausting the force, he said.

«I only ask all (political) forces to leave the police out of the political equation and the conflict that is taking place,» Ibrahim said.

He said he is talking with the striking policemen, who, he said are demanding better armament.

He dismissed charges that the Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood is dictating his ministry's policies.

«There is no interference by anyone in the work of the ministry. Rest assured,» he told reporters.

He said «infiltrators» among the protesters target police with live ammunition, birdshot and firebombs, to draw the force into using violence.

In the country's Islamist-led Shura Council, the upper house of the legislature, members criticized the striking police, accusing them of dereliction of duty and 사이판 카지노 후기 allowing chaos to spread. One called for banning strikes by police, while another accused former regime officials of conspiring to undermine Morsi's rule and hold on power.

«We are facing a very tight conspiracy that aims to destroy any legitimacy,» said Hassan Youssef Abdel-Ghaffour of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party.

Those who prefer to linger over their meals or drink, don't," said Yoshikazu

(CBS News) Jiro Ono is an octogenarian who works out of a tiny kitchen in the basement of a Tokyo office building. He also happens to be a culinary superstar. Lucy Craft paid a visit to the sushi master and his son, also a chef, and has this report:

In Japan, there are about 30,000 sushi shops, but there's no one quite like sushi phenomenon Jiro Ono.

Still pressing rice and fish every day at the age of 87, Jiro has helped transform what was once a street food snack into gourmet cuisine.

A Michelin three-star chef, Jiro was Immortalized in a recent documentary, «Jiro Dreams of Sushi.» The aging artisan draws a steady stream of besotted admirers from the U.S. and around the world, despite prices that start at almost $400 a person.

More in Food and Wine

At his side is the elder of his two sons, Yoshikazu. Like the crown prince to a long-lived king, the 50-year-old heir patiently bides his time, waiting to take the reins from a living legend.

«From society's point of view, my father is way up here, up above the clouds,» said Yoshikazu. «But slowly, I'm reaching his level. I'm not just riding his coat tails.»

Like most men of his generation, Jiro Ono was an absentee father, a stranger to his own family, as he logged grueling, 18-hour days, year after year. This workaholic intensity was fueled not just by possibilities of the future, but harrowing memories of the past.

«I was determined to make sure my children would never have to suffer as I did,» Ono said.

Jiro's own childhood was brief, cut short when his struggling family sent him away to live and work at a restaurant. He was just seven years old.

«I was too young to apprentice with the gardener or carpenter,» he said. «The local restaurant was the only place that would take me. So that's how I ended up in this business.»

Vowing never to go hungry again, Jiro set up shop in the basement of a Ginza office building, humble quarters for his now-celebrated eatery, Sukiyabashi Jiro. Endlessly honing and tinkering with ingredients, preparation and presentation, he forged a kind of sushi alchemy.

Yoshikazu and his cooks faithfully replicate Jiro's almost scientific recipes for the perfect tamago omelet, painstakingly pureed and baked without a single air bubble... rice boiled and seasoned in tiny batches, so that it cools to optimal temperature by the time it's served... delicate indigo strips of flounder, draped luxuriously like fine fabric.

Jiro's pinpoint-execution of the culinary process is absolute.

But this iron control, as some diners have discovered (to their peril), doesn't stop at the counter. Patrons must reserve a month in advance, and are expected not just to show up on time, but to consume on time — ideally, eating their sushi no longer than three seconds after it hits the plate. Meals at Jiro's may be shorter than coffee breaks.

The father and son's fastidiousness, and their habit of scolding customers who run afoul of counter etiquette, have earned the Ono family plenty of raspberries along with praise — and they make no apologies for 마닐라 하얏트 호텔 it.

«People who are serious about sushi love our restaurant. Those who prefer to linger over their meals or drink, don't,» said Yoshikazu. «That's why opinions about us are so divided.»

It's not everyone's recipe for success. But for this sushi-making dynasty, they wouldn't have it any other way.

Bush, saw the Clint Eastwood Chrysler "It's Halftime in America" ad as political payback from the auto industry to President Obama

A leading Republican says one of the commercials from the Super Bowl is a quiet political endorsement for President Obama.

Karl Rove, former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, saw the Clint Eastwood Chrysler «It's Halftime in America» ad as political payback from the auto industry to President Obama.

«I was, frankly, offended by it,» Rove told Fox News. «The president of the United States and his political minions are, in essence, using our tax dollars to buy corporate advertising and the best wishes of the management, which is benefited by getting a bunch of our money that they'll never pay back.»

However, other people have a different view of the ad.

In a radio interview, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said, «I thought that it was pro-American.» He added, «I know Clint personally. I can assure you he did not make a pro-Obama ad.»

That's something Clint Eastwood confirmed, telling a Fox News producer, «I am not affiliated with Mr. Obama and the commercial was about job growth and the spirit of America.»

The chief executive officer of Chrysler denies that there was any political motivation here.

The bailout of Chrysler began during the Bush administration with $4 billion. Another $8.5 billion was added during the Obama administration for a total of $12.5 billion. About 90 percent of that amount was paid back.

However, this may be a political football for the foreseeable future, 강원 랜드 바카라 이기는 법 Reid observed on «CBS This Morning.»

The Rio de Janeiro State Health Department said in a statement that the woman's husband was cleaning his spear gun when it went off, firing a harpoon that hit her cervical spine

RIO DE JANEIRO A 28-year-old woman miraculously survived after her husband accidentally shot her in the mouth with a harpoon, Brazilian officials said Wednesday.

The Rio de Janeiro State Health Department said in a statement that the woman's husband was cleaning his spear gun when it went off, firing a harpoon that hit her cervical spine.

Elisangela Borborema Rosa was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery after Monday's incident in the coastal city of Arraial do Cabo.

The statement quotes neurosurgeon Allan da Costa as saying that the harpoon came within 1 centimeter (less than half an inch) of killing the woman. He said he expects a full recovery.

A police officer in Arrial do Cabo said by telephone that officials are looking into the case.

«Everything indicates it was an accident, but we are investigating. We don't think the husband tried to kill her,» said the officer, 마카오 카지노 후기 who cited department policy in declining to let her name be used.

«But once she fully recovers we will be able to question her and get a clearer picture of what happened.»

Penetrating injuries to the neck, mouth and base of the skull are particularly dangerous and potentially lethal, Dr. Robert Glatter of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York told

«The harpoon was apparently quite close to the carotid artery, a vital artery that supplies blood to the brain,» said Glatter, who is not involved in the woman's treatment. «Interruption of this blood vessel can lead to death or a stroke, depending on severity of the injury.»

Glatter said the woman's survival is attributed to the fact that the harpoon missed her carotid artery.

«She may have some residual neurologic deficits from injuries to other blood vessels which supply the spinal cord, as well as trauma to other areas of the spinal cord itself,» Glatter said.

This is the second harpoon accident in Brazil in less than a month. In April, a man reportedly survived a harpoon through the brain, following a freak accident in which he accidentally shot himself through the left eye while cleaning his harpoon gun.

Sky News reported that Bruno Coutinho of Petropolis, Brazil had a harpoon lodged six-inches through his skull and survived surgery to remove the impaled object.

After the Israeli attacks, there had been speculation about whether Syria would retaliate, at the risk of drawing Israel into Syria's civil war

BEIRUT Syria will supply «game-changing» weapons to Hezbollah, the chief of the Lebanese militia said defiantly on Thursday, just days after Israeli airstrikes on Damascus targeted shipments of advanced Iranian weapons possibly bound for the group.

«Syria will give the resistance special weapons it never had before,» Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech. «We mean game-changing.»

Nasrallah said the shipments of new types of weapons would serve as the Syrian reaction to Israel's airstrikes. Syria has long been a conduit for Iranian weapons bound for Hezbollah.

Israeli officials said the Lebanese militia has tens of thousands of rockets, but that most of them are unguided. Israeli officials said the shipments targeted twice last week included precision-guided missiles.

After the Israeli attacks, there had been speculation about whether Syria would retaliate, 카지노사이트 at the risk of drawing Israel into Syria's civil war.

«This is the Syrian strategic reaction,» said Nasrallah of future weapons shipments.

«This is more important than firing a rocket or carrying out an airstrike in occupied Palestine,» he said. Hezbollah refers to Israel as part of «occupied Palestine.»

Israel never formally acknowledged the airstrikes, but Israeli officials have said Israel would keep striking any shipments of advanced weapons meant for Hezbollah. If Syria were to attempt shipments of such weapons to Hezbollah, Israeli strikes appear likely and could lead to a major escalation in the 26-month-old Syria conflict.

Hezbollah and Iran have become increasingly involved in Syria's civil war, sending troops and military advisers to help Syrian President Bashar Assad fight armed rebels trying to oust him.
