AI rolls back boarding passes with PMs and Guj CMs photos

first_imgNew Delhi: Air India has decided to “roll back” its boarding passes bearing photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani after they came in for criticism. The airline had earlier said the passes, featuring the photographs which were third-party advertisements, would be withdrawn if they are found to be in violation of the Model Code of Conduct.”Air India has decided to roll back the boarding passes of Vibrant Gujarat which had photos of the prime minister and the Gujarat chief minister,” said Air India spokesperson Dhananjay Kumar. Former Punjab DGP Shashi Kant on Monday tweeted a photograph of his boarding pass issued at the New Delhi airport, questioning how pictures of the two leaders could be on it. “At New Delhi airport today March 25th, 2019. My AI Boarding Pass, prominently flashes Narendra Modi, “Vibrant Gujrat” & Vijay Rupani. Picture of boarding pass is below,” he tweeted.last_img read more


UN envoy GuineaBissaus challenges must be tackled without delay

15 July 2010Recent events in Guinea-Bissau have spotlighted the fragility of the efforts to consolidate stability, but the West African nation’s challenges, though significant, can be overcome if they are addressed immediately, a senior United Nations official said today. On 1 April, troops under the command of the then-Deputy Chief of General Staff, Major General António N´djai, took control of the armed forces’ headquarters, detaining the Chief of General Staff, Vice Admiral José Zamora Induta, and briefly holding Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Júnior. Also on that day, armed military elements forced their way into UN premises in the capital, Bissau, demanding the immediate release of Rear Admiral Bubo Na Tchto, who left the premises after signing a statement that he was leaving voluntarily and peacefully.In his latest report on Guinea-Bissau, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the violation of the UN site “unacceptable and condemnable,” urging the national authorities to comply with their obligation to protect the world body’s installations, personnel and assets.Presenting the report to the Council, Mr. Ban’s Special Representative Joseph Mutaboba said the events of 1 April, “which constituted a serious breach of constitutional order, as well as defiance toward the international community, with the violation of the United Nations premises in Bissau, have underlined the extreme fragility of the peacebuilding process and its vulnerability to reversals.” He listed weak State institutions, development gaps, illicit drug trafficking and organized crime as among the obstacles to stability in Guinea-Bissau.Vice Admiral Induta remains in custody and has been dismissed by presidential decree, with Maj.-Gen. N´djai being appointed as the new Chief of General Staff of the armed forces and promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General. The President has underlined that the decision to appoint Mr. N’djai was a sovereign decision that was not taken under coercion.“These recent developments are an indication that civilian authorities in Guinea-Bissau are yet to exercise full control over the armed forces,” Mr. Mutaboba said.He added that Mr. N’djai’s appointment has been criticized by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU), the European Union (EU), the United States and other partners.“The challenges in Guinea-Bissau are significant, but not insurmountable if addressed without delay,” the envoy said. “The status quo would certainly allow the challenges to become bigger, not to mention the spill-over effect on the entire subregion.”Although the country’s authorities bear the responsibility to urgently address the obstacles, Mr. Mutaboba pointed out that the international community can take a firm stance to ensure that critical steps are taken to help stabilize the country.At this stage, he said, what is needed is the national authorities’ genuine commitment to continue reforming the security sector and other areas, respecting constitutional order and rule of law. Also required is a practical and time-bound roadmap to implement such strategies.In addition, greater international efforts to address drug trafficking and organized crime are essential. “Such actions should be combined with a firm posture vis-à-vis national authorities, especially the leadership of the armed forces, for them to understand the need to stay the course of the reform process within internationally acceptable standards,” Mr. Mutaboba said.Guinea-Bissau is one of four countries currently on the agenda of the Peacebuilding Commission – along with Burundi, Sierra Leone and the Central African Republic (CAR) – which was established in 2005 to help countries emerging from conflict make an irreversible transition from war to sustainable peace.The events of 1 April “sadly reflected a pattern of addressing political disputes by force and therefore should be strongly condemned,” said Ambassador Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti of Brazil, who chairs the Guinea-Bissau Configuration of the Peacebuilding Commission.“Events such as these send a wrong message of disrespect to the rule of law,” discouraging partners from engaging with the country, she added in her address to the Council today.Resolving the case of Mr. Induta would provide a boost to the country’s peacebuilding process, Ms. Viotti stressed.One positive development that emerged from the events of 1 April was the large-scale support by the country’s people for democratic institutions. It was “a clear indication,” she said, that the people of Guinea-Bissau “are a peaceful people that cherish the value of democracy and are eager to reap the long-awaited dividends of peace.”Ms. Viotti underlined that helping Guinea-Bissau strengthen its institutions is an avenue to addressing the root causes of instability.Instead of relying solely on security issues, it is vital that international cooperation help to lay solid foundations for social and economic development, she noted.“At the end of the day, it is the revitalization of the economy and the creation of job opportunities that will generate the resources that will allow the provision of basic services to the population and allow the State to function in a sustainable manner,” she emphasized. read more


Afghanistan neighbours agree to facilitate UN delivery of relief supplies

UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Kenzo Oshima, who has just returned from a mission to Central Asia, told a press conference in New York that the main purpose of last week’s trip to Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan was to look into ways to improve the provision of relief aid into Afghanistan from its northern neighbours.”The northern and northeastern provinces of Afghanistan are among the most vulnerable areas in the country so increasing the flow of assistance into these areas is one of our top priorities at the moment,” he said. “Certainly this region is not getting as much of the media attention as the refugee outflows into Pakistan and Iran.”Mr. Oshima said the governments of each country were “extremely supportive” of that objective and have agreed to several concrete steps to help the UN achieve its objective.Turkmenistan agreed to the establishment of two humanitarian offices close to the Afghan border for logistical and management support purposes, Mr. Oshima said. This will allow the UN to support its Afghanistan operations easily and augment the delivery of aid supplies.For its part, Uzbekistan agreed to allow the UN to use the Termiz River port for barges and the Termiz Airport for the stockpiling of goods. Meanwhile, Tajikistan agreed to open a river crossing into Afghanistan for the delivery of relief material as well as to allow air operations to be conducted from its territory.In other news, Pino Arlacchi, Executive Director of the UN Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (ODCCP), called on the representatives of the countries belonging to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to join in a common effort to prevent opium poppy cultivation and heroin production in Afghanistan.”A reduction in the availability of illicit drugs will address an important threat to human security in the region and in Europe,” Mr. Arlacchi said in a speech in Vienna to the 55-nation OSCE Permanent Council. It would also affect the financial base of terrorism and organized crime, he added. read more


DR of Congo UN mission tries to calm strife in eastern city

Armed elements loyal to Col. Jules Mutebutsi, suspended since March from his post as deputy commander of the 10th military region, have been fighting regular troops from the same region not only downtown but also in the Nguba, Ruzizi I, College al-Fajiri and Nyawera districts since the late afternoon on Wednesday, the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) said.The noise of both small arms and heavy weapons has shaken the entire city, it said.The exact number of casualties was not yet known, but at least five soldiers from the Armed Forces of the Republic of the Congo (FARDC) were killed and 19 injured, while two of Colonel Mutebutsi’s armed followers were killed.Among the civilians, seven have died and six others injured. Many Bukavu stores and homes have been looted and the city has lost electricity.MONUC said it deplored the new cycle of violence. It has been in touch with the Transitional Government in Kinshasa and the parties in Bukavu and has redoubled its efforts to reach a ceasefire agreement. read more


Kyobo 6inch eReader goes on sale with Mirasol color epaper display

first_img$1 billion is a lot of money to spend on producing a product that never makes it to market. Which is why Qualcomm must no doubt be relieved that its Mirasol color e-Ink display has finally landed in a commercial produced gadget: the Kyobo eReader.Mirasol displays promise the best of both worlds: the energy efficiency and ultra-clear text of black-and-white ePaper displays like those found on the Kindle and Nook eReaders, combined with the full array of colors you find on a traditional tablet like the iPad or Kindle Fire. Up until now, unfortunately, no device has ever actually made its way to retail outlets sporting the video-capable Mirasol display. Around this time two years ago, Qualcomm announced that a Mirasol color eReader would be available in time for the holiday season in 2010.Two years after that announcement, Kyobo’s tablet is up for sale in Korea. The Kyobo eReader goes for $310, and its makers boast “weeks” of runtime. It’s powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 5.7-inch color touchscreen display that runs at a resolution of 1024×768. Android 2.3 provides the software base.Just over $300 for a color tablet with an energy-sipping e-Ink display that will run for weeks doesn’t sound too bad, does it? But there’s an asterisk to be added. That’s only possible with reduced display brightness and a 30 minute per day cap on your tablet use, so really you’re talking about 7 to 10 hours of actual activity and loads of stand-by time. Those are still pretty good marks, and at least someone has had the gumption to put a Mirasol display in a tablet and start selling it.As for whether or not bigger manufacturers will follow suit, we’ll just have to cross our fingers. Maybe that 8.9-inch Kindle Fire update will sport a Mirasol display, too.More at Engadget and Kyobolast_img read more

Leave supporters cheer out out out

first_imgAsian stocks were trading lower on 24 June (Friday) after results from the referendum suggested Britain had opted to leave the EU. While the vote counting has not yet concluded, the BBC, Sky News and other major British television networks reported that the Leave campaign is likely to win. The Nikkei, which had opened in the green in early trade, later plunged into bear territory. As of 5.34am GMT, it was down 7.8% at 14,977.31. It has taken the biggest hit among all Asian markets and at one point was down as much as 8.3%. Trading in Nikkei futures was halted for about 10 minutes, a first since 23 May, 2013.Bernard Aw, market strategist at IG in Singapore, told Reuters: Equities markets will be affected and we can see that Asian stocks are already under a fair bit of pressure.

65pc women lack faith in police

first_imgviolence against womenAs high as 65 per cent of women, surveyed in the country recently, have expressed the view that they thought police would blame them rather than the perpetrators in cases they fell victims to violence, reports UNB.And 57 per cent of them felt that if complaints are made the crime would not be taken seriously.The survey report on violence against women and girls in urban settings Whose City conducted by ActionAid revealed this at a launching programme on Thursday in the CIRDAP auditorium of the city.Women in Bangladesh feel unsafe and are concerned about the implications of reporting any crimes, evidenced by the reluctance among surveyed to go to the police to report a crime. Some 65 per cent women felt the police would blame them rather than the perpetrators, and 57 per cent felt the crime would not be taken seriously while the rate of violence is found 54.7 per cent, the report said.The study presents the results of an evaluation of womens safety in urban spaces of Bangladesh, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Jordan, Liberia, Nepal Nigera, Senegal, South Africa, and Zimbabwe taking five indicators into consideration violence against women, legal assistance to fight against violence, women friendliness in budget, women friendly urban cities, safety in public transports.Bangladesh scored zero on two – women friendly urban cities and safety in public transports among the five criteria.Bangladesh ranks 6th among the countries studied, with a D-grade and 39.32 among the ten while the war-torn Congo too occupied the same ranking. Nepal, Nigeria, Jordan, Brazil and Zimbabwe fare well than Bangladesh in women safety and empowerment issues.The indicators signify that Bangladesh is one of the worst countries for not having women safety in urban spaces that indicates about the inadequate implementation of law, lack of gender friendly urban planning and restricted transport system for women and girls, the report explained.Country director of ActionAid Bangladesh Farah Kabir delivered the welcome speech while programme manager Kashfia Feroz presented the report findings.Referring to the law, the report said, Bangladesh has law on the issue of violence against women. But the country has no specific laws related to femicide, though there are no specific laws to address sexual harassment in public spaces.In the transport sector, it showed that though millions of people use public transport every day, 49 per cent of women do not feel safe on the street or when using public transport while 48 per cent feel unsafe when they try to access to a public services.Stressing on awareness building from the community level, state minister for women, and child affairs Meher Afrose Chumki said as chief guest that we have lack of women friendly environment everywhere, so it will take some time to balance. It is not possible to balance in a night.Professor of the department of law of DU Shahnaz Huda and general secretary of Bangladesh Mahila Parishad Maleka Banu discussed on legal framework and budget allocation respectively while professor of urban planning of Jahangirnagar University Aktar Mahmud and secretary BRTA Muhammad Showka Ali discussed urban planning, which includes gender perspective and transportation plan through gender perspective.Director of Dhaka Metropolitan Ansar, Hira Miah and commander of Rapid Action Battalion Muhammad Mufti Mahmud Khan were present in the programme.last_img read more


Thin turnout in polls plagued by clashes

first_imgLaw enforcement officials stand guard outside a voting center during the general election in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on 30 December 2018. Photo: ReutersAn international news agency reports clashes between supporters of Bangladesh’s ruling party and its opponents as Bangladesh votes in a general election after violence-plagued campaigns.Reuters reporters across the country of 165 million people saw sparse turnout at polling booths in the first fully competitive general election in a decade widely expected to be won by prime minister Sheikh Hasina, giving her a third straight term in office.Mobile internet was blocked and the streets of the capital were largely deserted as many had left to vote in their home towns. Others were seen trickling into polling booths, where posters bearing the ruling Awami League’s “boat” symbol far outnumbered those of the opposition.Mahbub Talukdar, one of the five election commissioners who stirred a controversy last week by saying there was no level-playing field for the parties, told Reuters he did not see any opposition polling agents near the Dhaka booth where he voted, suggesting they had been kept away.”I am receiving similar complaints from across the country on phone, but what can I do alone?” he said.A spokesman for the election commission said it would act on any written complaints about the lack of opposition presence at polling centres.The deadly clashes in the southeast of the Muslim-majority country broke out between workers of the Awami League and its opponents, led by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) of former prime minister Khaleda Zia, amid allegations of vote rigging.One of the victims was an Awami League supporter while the other was from an alliance partner, a government official and a politician said. Media said five people had died across the country in poll-related violence.The BNP boycotted the last election in 2014 claiming it wouldn’t be free and fair. The party has been hobbled by the absence of Khaleda, 74, who has been in jail since February on corruption charges which she says are politically motivated.Hasina and Khaleda have alternated in power for most of the last three decades and this is the first election the BNP has contested without its leader.It stitched together the National Unity Front alliance with smaller parties, but has alleged its supporters and candidates faced attacks and intimidation, including shootings and arrests, at the hands of ruling party activists during campaigning.Some BNP leaders and a European diplomat said they feared the election would be rigged.Hasina’s party dismissed the accusations, saying the opposition has been making “one false allegation after another for months prior to election as polls show a landslide victory” for the ruling party.”I believe that people will cast their votes in favour of Awami League to continue the pace of development,” Hasina told reporters in Dhaka. “The ‘boat’ will surely win. I believe in democracy and I have confidence in the people of my country.”She has already invited foreign journalists and poll observers to her official residence on Monday, by which time the election result will be known.”WHAT’S THE POINT?”The country’s $280 billion economy grew 7.8 per cent in the 2017/18 financial year that ended on 30 June, compared with 5.1 per cent when Hasina took over in 2008/09.Over the same period, annual sales of its economic mainstay, the garment industry, nearly tripled, with garment exports worth $30.6 billion in 2017/18, making up 83.5 per cent of total exports. One of Hasina’s top jobs if she retains power will be to address demands by garment workers for a higher minimum wage.At a polling booth set up in a high school in old Dhaka on Sunday, some were afraid to comment on the polls, describing an atmosphere of fear.A middle-aged businessman who declined to be named said: “I am here to vote, but my family says, ‘what’s the point?’ The ruling party will come back in power in any case.”Hasina has been praised internationally for providing refuge to Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in neighbouring Myanmar, but her government is accused of suppressing dissent and jailing critics.She has faced accusations in the West of increasing authoritarianism. Her son, Sajeeb Wazed, told Reuters on Saturday Hasina regarded such accusations as a “badge of honour”.The United States, which has urged Bangladesh to ensure the vote is free and fair, said opposition party candidates had “borne the brunt of most violence” in recent weeks.After intensive efforts by the BNP to get Khaleda out of jail failed, her son, Tarique Rahman, who is wanted in Bangladesh accused of masterminding a 2004 plot to kill Hasina, appealed to women, who make up nearly half the 100 million voters, to help get his mother out of jail.”This is an important election, but the condition is not peaceful in the country,” said Monir, a teacher at a madrassa.”The opposition has not been able to exercise its responsibilities properly. They are afraid.”last_img read more

When segments of this protective membrane are damaged, nerve impulses can be disrupted. Symptoms range from tingling and numbness to weakness, pain and paralysis.There is currently no reliable way to directly image demyelination. Physicians rely on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), but despite high resolution images, MRI is not quantitative and cannot distinguish between demyelination and inflammation, which often coexist in people with MS.In the Jan. 12, 2018 online issue of the journal Scientific Reports, a multi-institutional team based primarily at the University of Chicago Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, describe early tests of a novel minimally-invasive way to assess myelin damage using positron emission tomography (PET).These PET scans use a radioactive molecule designed to target voltage-gated potassium channels, a protein found on demyelinated axons. The PET images, based on the detection of this molecule, provide quantitative information about underlying biochemical processes.“In healthy myelinated neurons, potassium channels are usually buried underneath the myelin sheath,” explained study author Brian Popko, Ph.D., the Jack Miller Professor of Neurological Disorders and director of the center for peripheral neuropathy at the University of Chicago. “When there is loss of myelin, these channels become exposed. They migrate throughout the demyelinated segment and their levels increase.”These exposed neurons leak intracellular potassium. This leaves them unable to propagate electrical impulses, which causes some of the neurological symptoms seen in MS. “So we developed a PET tracer that can target potassium channels,” Popko said.The team started with an existing MS drug, 4-aminopyridine (also known as dalfampridine), which can bind to exposed potassium channels. This can partially restore nerve conduction and alleviate neurological symptoms in MS patients. Using mouse models of MS, including some developed in the Popko lab, the researchers showed that the drug accumulated in the demyelinated, or uncovered, areas of the central nervous system.Then, with help from colleague Pancho Bezanilla, Ph.D., professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Chicago, the team examined several fluorine-containing derivatives of 4-aminopyridine for binding to K+ channels. They found that 3-fluoro-4-aminopyridine (3F4AP) has the desired properties, so they labeled the molecule with fluorine-18, which is easily detected by PET.“We were able to show, in rats, that the tracer accumulated to a higher degree in demyelinated areas than in control areas,” Popko said.“All existing PET tracers used for imaging demyelination bind to myelin and, consequently, demyelinated lesions show as decreases in signal, which can be problematic for imaging small lesions,” said Pedro Brugarolas, Ph.D., first author of the paper and currently a faculty member at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. “3F4AP is the first tracer whose signal increases with demyelination, potentially solving some of the problems of its predecessors.”Finally, in collaboration with scientists at the NIH, the researchers conducted a study in healthy monkeys. They confirmed that radiolabeled 3F4AP enters the brain of primates and localizes to areas where there is little myelin.“We think that this PET approach can provide complementary information to MRI which can help us follow MS lesions over time,” Popko said. “It has the potential to track responses to remyelinating therapies, an unmet need. This approach should also help determine how much disruption of the myelin sheath contributes to other central nervous system disorders.”That list includes leukodystrophies, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and “even maladies not traditionally associated with demyelination,” Popko suggested, “such as brain ischemia, psychiatric disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s.”“A tracer to monitor changes in something as ubiquitous as potassium channels could have applications for other diseases where these channels are involved,” Brugarolas added.For more information: X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

Strategies LLC whose namesake Steve Elmendorf is one of the nations top Democratic lobbyists The entity gave $10000 Elmendorfs lobbying partner is Jimmy Ryan a former senior adviser to Reid Ryan gave Senate Majority PAC $50000 Senate Majority PAC is also the driving financial force behind a self-described "nonpartisan" super PAC called Put Alaska First that is supporting Democratic Sen Mark Begich D-Alaska Alaskans themselves have little to do with the funding of Put Alaska First: Senate Majority PAC has provided the super PAC with more than $86 million 98 percent of the Alaska groups total receipts a fact thats hardly obvious to Alaskans watching the thousands of TV ads the group has run to primarily bash Begichs Republican opponent Dan Sullivan Senate Majority PAC also describes itself as "independent" But outside observers say the contributor list shows that even though Senate Majority PAC technically is an independent group its establishment ties and ability to unite Democratic donors under a big-money tent show how closely it is connected to party leaders "Senate Majority PAC is run by a couple of Democratic aides it has close ties to the leadership to Harry Reid Its almost as if this is the return of soft money" said Bill Allison editorial director of the Sunlight Foundation which monitors money in politics referring to unlimited contributions to national parties that were banned in 2002 "What this looks like to me really is if you go back and look at the soft money donors this is who a lot of them are" In all the Center for Public Integrity reached out to nearly

fundraiser who said she is on Senate Majority PACs board has herself given $25000 this cycle She pointed to the super PACs successful record from the 2012 elections as proof of its effectiveness and as something attractive to donors "I would say that one of the reasons why these races are as close as they are and we havent seen Republicans break out as expected is the hard diligent work of Senate Majority PAC" she said Elizabeth Simons president of the Heising-Simons Foundation and the daughter of James Simons the founder and former CEO of hedge fund Renaissance Technologies explained in an email why she gave Senate Majority PAC $900000 her largest-ever political contribution Her father a prominent Democratic donor gave $2 million "This year I felt I had no choice in light of Supreme Court decisions that have collectively had the effect of handing political power to the rich and disenfranchising large swathes of Americans primarily Democrats" she said "I am now a player in this sad game but the other side has deep pockets and so I decided to dig into mine" Ads keep coming More than 230 candidates political committees and nonprofit organizations have combined to run about 908000 US Senate-focused TV ads through Oct 27 according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of data from Kantar Media/CMAG an advertising tracking service With nearly 45000 TV ads through Oct 27 Senate Majority PAC easily bests all other individual super PACs and nonprofits The vast majority of Senate Majority PACs ads attack Republican candidates as opposed to promoting Democratic candidates Only the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee a national party committee founded in 1916 that as its name implies exists specifically to elect Democrats to the Senate has aired more TV ads this cycle than Senate Majority PAC with more than 51000 and counting Compare Senate Majority PACs TV ad sponsorship to conservative nonprofit outfit Crossroads GPS which has produced about 29000 ads so far this election and ranks a distant second among super PACs and nonprofits Conservative Koch brothers-backed nonprofit Americans for Prosperity with about 28300 Senate-focused TV ads ranks third Paul Lindsay a spokesman for Crossroads GPS and sister super PAC American Crossroads which has aired more than 16000 TV ads declined to comment on Senate Majority PAC In North Carolina alone Senate Majority PAC has aired more than 13600 ads Thats more than any single super PAC nonprofit or political committee has run in any one US Senate race this cycle And almost all of the ads have attacked Tillis and Tillis own campaign only days ago cracked the 10000 TV ad mark For perspective: Only five other super PACs or nonprofit groups this cycle have produced as many Senate race TV ads across all 36 races in play this year as Senate Majority PAC has in North Carolina alone Among TV ad sponsorship in other top US Senate races by super PACs and nonprofits Senate Majority PAC ranks first in Michigan and second in Colorado New Hampshire Kentucky Louisiana Arkansas and West Virginia Its third in Iowa Put Alaska First the Senate Majority PAC funded super PAC active in Alaskas Senate race has aired about 9000 ads through Oct 27 Expect Senate Majority PAC to continue its ad barrage through Election Day In New Hampshire for example the super PAC was already girding in July for close race between incumbent Democratic Sen Jeanne Shaheen and her Republican challenger former Sen Scott Brown of Massachusetts Even though Brown had yet to secure the GOP nomination at that point he won the Republican primary in September Senate Majority PAC was booking TV ad time for late October and early November according to Federal Communications Commission filings That includes an around-the-clock presence on WMUR-TV 9 New Hampshires only in-state network-affiliated station through today the day before Election Day FCC documents show It’s the same story in North Carolina where Senate Majority PAC is slated to spend well into the six-figure range roughing up Tillis during the final days of the states US Senate campaign At WSOC-TV 9 in Charlotte alone Senate Majority PAC has reserved more than $218300 worth of 11th-hour air time at all times day and night during shows that range from "Good Morning America" and the local evening news to soap opera "General Hospital" and crime drama "Castle" according to filings with the FCC And on Thursday Senate Majority PAC reported spending another $700000 on media buys and direct mailers targeting Republican US Senate candidates Joni Ernst in Iowa Brown in New Hampshire and McConnell in Kentucky In some ways it makes sense that Senate Majority PAC has emerged as a dominant force in the world of super PACs Senate Majority PAC
