Petra finds 'exceptional' 122-carat blue diamond

Diamond mining company Petra says it has found an "exceptional" 122.52-carat blue diamond. The "unique" stone was found at the Cullinan mine near Pretoria in South Africa, the company said.

The crystal is being analysed in order to gauge its value, and the company will not put it up for sale before its financial year runs out at the end of this month. Petra Diamonds shares jumped 6.5% after the announcement on Friday morning.

The highest price on record for a rough diamond is $35.3m

507.55-carat rough recovered from Cullinan in 2010 and sold for $ 35.3m




Vancouver securities lawyer John Briner


"Did somebody say sue? I am willing to represent you, and while you are at it, I have some penny stocks you may be interested in!"
The Law Society of British Columbia has initiated a professional misconduct case against Vancouver securities lawyer John Briner, claiming that he misappropriated client money in 2013. The society says that he received $50,439 from a client, and improperly withdrew or authorized the withdrawal of at least some of the money. He also failed to record the money in his trust ledger, according to the society.
The allegations are contained in a citation the Law Society issued on July 18, 2014, against Mr. Briner. The one-page citation says little about the circumstances of the case, other than to accuse Mr. Briner of misappropriating client money. According to the society, Mr. Briner received $50,439 from a client named GK and, between Dec. 20, 2012, and Oct. 16, 2013, he misappropriated some or all of it. Contrary to Law Society rules, he did not record a trust ledger showing the receipt of the money or its subsequent dispersal, the citation states.


The Law Society has not stated what penalties it could seek for Mr. Briner. It has also not yet scheduled a hearing in the matter.

________________________________________________


NOTE: It is this opinion that it is far more likely than not Mr. Briner forged Ms. Dalmy's signature multiple times to effect registration of these scamola companies.

On February 3, 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) announced the filing of stop order proceedings against 20 purported mining companies for providing false information in their registration statements. Of the 20 registration statements, 18 were opined upon by the same attorney, Diane Dalmy, who is the subject of a pending SEC proceeding.
More than one year ago, Promotion Stock Secrets published a featured report in which it noted blazing red flags of fraud in the same 20 registration statements.

Promotion Stock Secrets noted that the business plans of the issuers were virtually identical and involving purported mining properties. The issuers had nominal or no revenues, nominal or no assets and limited cash on hand. They also shared common bad actors, including John Briner. The registration statements opined by Dalmy were filed within close proximity to one another; in several cases, on the same day. Promotion Stock Secrets pointed out 19 of the 20 issuers were formed on May 31, or June 1 of 2012 and; 16 filed registration statements during January 2013. The remaining 4 registrations were filed in November and December of 2012.
The 20 companies that are the subjects of the stop order proceedings are:
Braxton Resources Inc.
Bonanza Resources Corp.
Canyon Minerals Inc.
CBL Resources Inc.
Chum Mining Group Inc.
Clearpoint Resources Inc.
Coronation Mining Corp.
Eclipse Resources Inc.
Gaspard Mining Inc.
Gold Camp Explorations Inc.
Goldstream Mining Inc.
Jewel Explorations Inc.
Kingman River Resources Inc.
La Paz Mining Corp.
Lost Hills Mining Inc.
PRWC Energy Inc.
Seaview Resources Inc.
Stone Boat Mining Corp.
Tuba City Gold Corp.
Yuma Resources Inc.

J.Frank Toasted, finally - BGM.v

The company reports, having recently received the written resignation of Frank Callaghan, that Norman Anderson, the company's current chairman, has been appointed the interim president and chief executive officer of the company. Mr. Callaghan remains a director of the company.

http://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-C%3aBGM-2197237&symbol=BGM®ion=C
J. Frank luck has finally run out, vis-a-vis the multi-year horseshoe up his hoop as he fended off those intent on offloading his hideous arse.

Damage was done via Sprott debt long ago so cry not for "poor" J. Frank.
"Interim CEO Anderson made sure to diplomatically thank Mr. Callaghan today for his "many years of selfless hard work and care . . . ." His selfless hard work last year came with a $240,000 salary, plus $1.2-million in fees charged by his private companies for exploration, deferred development, loan interest and administrative expenses. His son Sean also received $68,000 as he learned the business."

Barkerville Resolves Shareholder Petition respecting AGM and Pours Gold Bar

"Vancouver, BC -- Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. ("Barkerville" or the "Company") wishes to announce that the parties have recently reached an agreement (the "Agreement") to resolve the previously filed petition (the "Petition") in the Supreme Court of British Columbia ..."

1. the Company's Meeting for the year 2012 will be held at 1500 -- 1055 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, at 10:00 am on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, as previously called by the Company, in accordance with all applicable laws."
J. Frank thought it best to semi-cooperate with the naysayers whilst throwing a bone to the howling wolves in the form of a gold bar that for damn sure cost far more to produce than its worth. Thats what we call Venture promotion 101 and anything less from a man with the pedigree of J. Frank would be disappointing. Take a bow Sir ... arsesome poohery. (And do we know of another Venture DitzBag that OUGHT to be taking notes?)

___________________________________________
Mr. Callaghan's severely hornet stung pee pee got some more bad news yesterday as major stakeholders are lining up with the massive unmitigated cajones to demand a, gasp, AGM.

"Barkerville Gold Mines Ltd. and its president, Frank Callaghan, are facing an action in the Supreme Court of British Columbia from a shareholder who wants the company to hold its annual general meeting and wants to install three new directors. Rex Harbour, who owns 7.1 million Barkerville shares, says the company has not held an AGM since Aug. 26, 2011. He says that the meeting is long overdue, especially given the company's precarious financial condition, and he is asking the courts to compel the company to hold the AGM."

http://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-C%3aBGM-2023322&symbol=BGM®ion=C
J. Frank best be treading carefully because the opposition includes former Placer Dome Inc. president Mr. Peter Tomsett.

Story on the side is the fact J. Frank recently dug into his piggy bank to finance (through a debenture - Hardy Har) the rush to produce a REAL 43-101. On the other hand we have the opposition saying J. Frank has "received $7-million in compensation over the past 18 months, either directly or through a drilling company he controls".

(Forget 18 months, J. Frank's drilling company has been grossly and ridiculously profitable for 20 years+.)

Scotiabank Settles Class Action Lawsuit

“There’s no cap. Whatever claims are validated or accepted by the bank will be paid,” said O’Connor, adding if an employee is not satisfied with a decision, he or she can appeal to an independent arbitrator, with the bill footed by the bank. O’Connor believes this settlement sends a clear message to Canadian companies.

It’s a pretty simple message that employers should pay people for the work that they do that benefits the company,” he said.


Yeah. That's a pretty simple message the dolts at CIBC should start believing, along with other things.


"O’Connor, who is also acting for the plaintiffs in the CIBC case, said that company has indicated it intends to go to trial.

“CIBC will defend its position vigorously in court,” said CIBC spokeswoman Caroline Van Hasselt. “The overtime policy at CIBC is clear, easily accessible to employees and exceeds legislative requirements in Canada.”

Sammy Yatim was wielding a knife ...

Sammy Yatim was wielding a knife on an empty streetcar on the evening of July 26, 2013 when Toronto police Const. James Forcillo fired nine shots, striking him eight times. The 18-year-old later died in hospital.
Yatim’s family has previously said that Sammy was suffering an "an acute emotional disturbance" at the time of the shooting.

His death, which was captured on video that was posted online, sparked outrage and prompted Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair to request a report taking a broad look at how officers interact with people in crisis. After an investigation by Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, Forcillo was charged with second-degree murder in Sammy Yatim’s death.

Forcillo is expected to go on trial next year.

BCSC Judge certifies Class Action against CIBC

"A B.C. Supreme Court judge has certified a class-action suit against CIBC Mortgage Inc. in connection with its prepayment penalties.
In a June 30 judgment, Justice Jeanne Watchuk ruled that Erin Sherry is a “very appropriate” representative plaintiff in the case after she was hit with a $47,868.91 prepayment fee when she paid off her mortgage in full.

Watchuk’s decision also stated that “the certification is conditional on the plaintiff establishing for the court an identifiable class which is not overbroad.” She instructed lawyers for both parties to set a schedule to determine how to define which customers would be eligible to be included as plaintiffs in the class-action suit.


"The ruling noted that CIBC did $29 billion worth of mortgage business in B.C. in 2011. CIBC revealed to the court that between 11 percent and 15 percent of mortgages involved prepayments each year between 2008 and 2011. There would be between 5,800 and 11,600 prepayments made in British Columbia each year.”

News hit July 9, 2014 and Hell YA says we. Predatory CIBC business practices speak for themselves and following a hoed row is a fuk of a lot easier than breaking a new one. After looking at the massive size of THIS CIBC scamola, damn it is and motivation against these horrid MFers I have in spades.

A class action is what we are needing citizens. Nothing changes when CIBC can openly crush Canadians one at a time.

The NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo "wave"

NOTE : There are now residential addresses and phone numbers of all involved making the cyberspace rounds. It's the screams for blood, and it doesn't matter who's it is, that starts to offend now.

Those motivated enough can seek that information out, but, really, why would they exactly? Play God? Play Judge?
Former NYPD officer Mr. Pantaleo is facing a maximum of 15 years in prison and perhaps much more. That should be more than enough blood to satisfy for the time being.

__________________________________________________________________


"The one who did this to him should ask The Lord for forgiveness for taking someone's life. He didn't deserve this. This was not his time," Estelle Smith said.

Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, said, “They shouldn’t have did this to my son. My son never [hurt] a soul. Never.”

Some of the marchers chanted “NYPD KKK.”


The funeral for a New York father who died while in police custody is expected to draw hundreds of family members, friends, supports and community leaders to a Brooklyn church Wednesday.

This commentator can't add nor subtract anything, again.

"The cop whose chokehold knocked out a Staten Island dad — and may have directly caused his fatal heart attack — is being targeted in online death threats and a Facebook page called “Officer Daniel Pantaleo — Wanted Dead or Alive.”

Police cars continued to sit just outside Pantaleo’s Eltingville home Monday as a work crew installed security cameras intended to dissuade or catch would-be vigilantes."

Internal NYPD reports released

Internal NYPD reports, made immediately after the murder, have been released. This observer was rendered speechless some time ago.




http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/exclusive-internal-nypd-report-staten-island-dad-mention-chokehold-article-1.1875221#ixzz38AgrJosA

"The FDNY announced over the weekend that two EMTs and two paramedics from RUMC who responded to the scene would be barred from responding to 911 calls pending an investigation and review of the incident.

The emergency workers "are suspended without pay while the investigation continues as they are placed on operational restriction. This restriction means they are not working at this hospital or throughout the 911 system. Richmond University Medical Center continues to fully cooperate as this matter is under investigation," according to a statement by the hospital.

The decision was made after video surfaced showing one of the responding EMTs - identified in the New York Post as Nicole Palmeri - taking Garner's pulse but apparently doing little else for about two minutes before Garner is hoisted onto a stretcher. At the video's four-minute mark, she checks his wrist for a pulse, then puts her hand on the side of his neck before telling gathered police officers, "Yeah."


"She should have either put him on oxygen or put an airway in his mouth," the source said. "They were there for four and a half minutes and they did none of that."

The source also questioned the way the EMT looked for Garner's pulse, noting that a check near the carotid artery would be performed "to the left or the right of the trachea, not on the side of the neck." Otherwise, the source said, "You're feeling your own pulse in your hand."

"One medic at Garner’s side doesn’t even have any of the required equipment on her, such as an oxygen bag or a defibrillator, the source said. “You can [only] hear her say, ‘Oh, he can’t walk to the bus?’ ” the source said."

NY Cops kill man over untaxed cigarettes - Cops React Online

If a body was wondering about what America's finest police officers are saying online about this murder ...

"In internet communities for law enforcement, like PoliceOne.com, "the One resource for Law Enforcement online," and Thee Rant, an NYPD message board, the Garner story has stirred up racial, political, and professional tensions, most of them quite ugly. While all of the comments below are anonymous, and therefore not verifiable, both sites do require registration for membership."
tpaw7:
You may say "f&ck the police" but you may not f&ck with the police. It's sad that he died, but that blame goes to he and he alone. The police generally don't show up ten deep at your door just to say hey. This pervasive mentality that these assholes seem to have about not listening to the lawful orders of the police is what leads to these deaths and injuries. All he had to do was comply and he would not be dead. Tough shit and too damn bad.

samuelx:

Of course the media isn't going to point out how many thousands of dollars of untaxable income a mope can make in a week selling illegal cigarettes (while also receiving welfare benefits)...

pike942:

If he could talk, he could breath. He resisted arrest; they took him to the ground. I didn't see anything improper about the arrest.
Santos:

Dont resist. I don't understand why these people don't simply comply. He would be out already with a DAT. What would his penalty have been? A fine perhaps? More than likely, he would have been cut loose with a warning. Unreal. I wish the officers well, its gonna be a bumpy ride.

kopinyc:

A more accurate headline would be "Non Compliant Fat Bastard Gets Just Due In Resisting Law Enforcement Officers"

DisGraziato:

I guess it's the best thing for his tribe. He probably never worked a legit job. They city will pay off the family and they will be in Nigggaaa heaven for the rest of their lives!!

MY TWO SENSE:

Fat fck perp who was anointed a Saint by all who knew him. Married, noticed how they put that in there, because 9 times out of 10 it's not the case. This video will gain a lot of traction and heads will roll. Pretty much every cop there will be modified.

As far as the grab around the neck, I would have done the same thing. That piece of sh!t was too fat and wide to grab anywhere else. Seems it was conveniently edited as well. Maybe missing a few details of the mutts action?

PH1nAlLY Phr33:

As they go down, one can clearly see the cop (Green Jersey) holding-on to his neck with his left arm ONLY while trying to grab perp's right hand with his. Within 1 second he lets go completely and twists to a seated position next to the perp. There was no continuous "Chokehold" of any kind. Though not surprised, I like how these rags try to portray/describe something that never happened.

NYPD finest:

Hopefully I am totally wrong but they are going to try to crucify these cops for doing their job. If the fat fuk just put his hands behind his back none of this would have escalated into what it did. I think the cops are going to have a long uphill battle but thankfully this happened in Staten island and not the Bronx.

Career Path:

Fuckin Bratton threw the cops under the bus by declaring it as a choke hold.The cop grabbed him from behind yes but did not hold this guy in a position where the breathing of this fat bast*rd was blocked.The medical examiners report will be in the cops favor.Tell Deblowzio to get his azz to Italy.

Officer Joe Bolton:

It's going to be an up hill battle for the cops, you can clearly hear the fat bastard crying out "I can't breath". If ever a person wanted to know why police work is so difficult, here is a good reason. Best of luck to those guys who's lives (and their families) have just been turned upside down for all eternity.

offlinepbadad:
Yes, they'll pay off the "family"... It's a lot cheaper than a riot... And therein lies the problem... The cities of America are held hostage by the strong-arm tactics of the savages

_____________________________________________


A Staten Island man died Thursday after police placed him in a chokehold as they attempted to arrest him for selling untaxed cigarettes.

According to authorities, Eric Garner, 43, went into cardiac arrest and died at Richmond University Medical Center following the arrest that was filmed by several witnesses, the New York Daily News reported.

The "choke-hold" has been banned by NY cops for well over 20 years. Do any of these wicked coksukers attempt CPR?
(AT 6:56 The Cop Who Put Him In A Chokehold Waves At The Camera)


Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who was videotaped putting the Staten Island father in a chokehold, has been stripped of his gun and badge. According to a Department spokesperson, the eight-year veteran of the force will "work in a non-enforcement capacity until further notice." The New York Daily News reports that another officer involved in the incident, four-year veteran Justin Damico, has been placed on desk duty, though he's been allowed to keep his cop accessories for now.

Pantaleo has been accused of false arrest and violating police procedures in two lawsuits, court records show. In one, two African-American plaintiffs won $15,000 apiece after claiming they’d been falsely arrested on Staten Island in 2012 and forced to publicly strip so cops could search them. All charges against them were dropped.

__________________________________
NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo should be charged with second degree manslaughter for killing Eric Garner. If convicted, he could be sentenced to sentenced to serve up to 15 years in prison.

Section 125.15 of the New York Penal Code defines second degree manslaughter:

A person commits second-degree manslaughter when he or she (a) recklessly causes the death of another person; (b) commits an unjustified abortional act upon a female which causes her death; or (c) commits assisted suicide.

Section 15.05(3) of the New York Penal Code defines recklessness:

A person acts recklessly with respect to a result or to a circumstance described by a statute defining an offense when he is aware of and consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk that such result will occur or that such circumstance exists. The risk must be of such nature and degree that disregard thereof constitutes a gross deviation from the standard of conduct that a reasonable person would observe in the situation. A person who creates such a risk but is unaware thereof solely by reason of voluntary intoxication also acts recklessly with respect thereto.

Members of the NYPD will NOT use chokeholds,” the NYPD patrol guide clearly states. “A chokehold shall include, but is not limited to, any pressure to the throat or windpipe which may prevent or hinder breathing to reduce intakes of air.”After several people were asphyxiated while in police custody, the NYPD forbade the use of chokeholds in 1983, stating it could only be used when an officer’s life was in danger. Former Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly banned the use of chokeholds all together in 1993.

Detectives arrived at his Staten Island home Saturday afternoon, leaving about 25 minutes later with one box and three bags taken from the residence.

Manslaughter in the second degree is a class C felony which carries a minimum sentence 1 to 3 years in prison and a maximum period of incarceration of 5 to 15 years.
