In the absence of regional courts with criminal jurisdiction, the ICC provided justice internationally for those affected by egregious human rights violations, crimes against humanity, and for victims of genocide, the SAHRC said. Combined with the tendency of some heads of states to want to remain in power for life, the extension of such immunity will undoubtedly result in some heads of states not being held accountable for their actions.
Bob Dylan has been branded "arrogant" for failing to acknowledge his Nobel Prize in Literature by a member of the body that awards the honour. In a televised interview in Sweden, a senior level member of the Swedish Academy criticized Dylan's behavior, calling it "impolite and arrogant".
Surface markings imaged by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and released via NASA JPL, identifies new markings believed to be related to ESA's Schiaparelli Entry, Descent and Landing Demonstrator Module (EDM), which arrived at Mars on October 19th.
In just three games, he's amassed 574 receiving yards, along with eight touchdowns. Texas Tech scores a ton of points, 48.8 to be exact, which ranks fifth nationally.

The MRO will make another pass over the site next week and its high-resolution HiRISE camera will take more detailed pictures of the area. Landing on Mars is notoriously hard because of the planet's thin, dusty atmosphere. ESA lost contract with the lander two days ago mid-way through its descent to the planet's surface. The Schiaparelli probe had been meant to test technology for a later rover planned for 2020.
The Schiaparelli probe is thought to have been successfully landed on Mars but it is not known what condition the craft is in and it has not been able to communicate back with Earth. ESA's Director General Jan Woerner said the agency's Trace Gas Orbiter is ready for work - studying trace gases like methane around the planet. "So the readiness is fully confirmed and we are in full control of the spacecraft", Woerner said.
The nighttime launch, which had been visible from the U.S. East Coast (from Boston to central South Carolina), marks the first flight of Antares since October 2014, when an older version of the rocket exploded shortly after liftoff. "If the Orbital launch fails, it casts doubt on the viability of that plan". Since the blast, the launchpad has been rebuilt at a cost of $15 million, and the rocket has been overhauled to be more powerful.
Schiaparelli , a disc-shaped 577-kg lander, is part of the European-Russian ExoMars program, which aims to search for signs of past and present life on Mars and evidence of methane and other trace atmospheric gases that could be signatures of active biological or geological processes.
The remarks, which followed the Bank's decision to keep its key interest rates unchanged - including a -0.4% charge on its deposit facility - briefly lifted the single currency past 1.1039 against the USA dollar, the highest in almost a month.
ExoMars Flight Director Michael Denis said that the probe reached the surface at a speed too high, about several hundred kilometers per hour, and precisely because of this extra speed the probe was destroyed during the impact with Mars, according to Reuters .
It seems that Google will take a bit out of Samsung's market share, while Apple might take over some of the customers that Samsung has just lost. Much like Samsung would have done with its now-doomed flagship in India during Diwali, Huawei plans to spend heavily towards marketing, branding and advertising three new smartphones - Honor 8, Honor 8 Smart and Holly 3 - it launched on Thursday.
Pro-government channels broadcast footage of ambulances and green busses parked at empty reception points in government Aleppo, said to be waiting for civilians and fighters from the city's east.

The attackers took advantage of traffic-routing services such as those offered by Alphabet Inc's Google and Cisco Systems Inc's OpenDNS to make it hard for Dyn to root out bad traffic without also interfering with legitimate inquiries, Drew said .
There's other matters that I think are sensible that are the kind of reforms that would make a difference that are not in any way conflicting with the Second Amendment", she said. In fact, Clinton has proposed comprehensive background checks, closing the online loophole, and closing the gun show loophole.

The results from the annual survey of 30 National Basketball Association general managers are in, and while they picked the Wizards to be a playoff team under first-year coach Scott Brooks they didn't list John Wall among the top four point guards or give votes to any other players on the roster in any category.
Almost all of those attacked were clients of Dyn, a firm that provides domain name system services and other internet infrastructure services. Amazon Web Services (AWS), a unit of Amazon.com that hosts numerous web's popular destinations including Netflix, reported an attack that also affected people on the East Coast around the same time in the morning.
The ESA hoped to use data from Schiaparelli's lading to develop a landing system for their 2020 rover, but it's now possible that the crash landing forces them to reevaluate their timetable. The lander was the second of a two-part European mission that reached the red planet on 19 October. A space probe that was supposed to look for signs of life on Mars has crash-landed and may have exploded, the European Space Agency has confirmed.

The 70-year-old Republican nominee began his remarks with some light-hearted comments, including jokes about his "beautiful hands" and that Clinton appearing at the event without charging any fees for it, but was booed as he shifted gears from the self-deprecating humorous tone of the event to call Clinton "corrupt".
What happened remains a mystery, but ExoMars Project Manger Don McCoy expressed confidence yesterday that after fully analyzing data transmitted from Schiaparelli to TGO during the descent "we will have no doubt" about what transpired. ESA member states meeting at a the agency's next ministerial council meeting in Lucerne, Switzerland, in December will be asked to pledge continued support - and funding - for the mission's ambitious second phase.
That's when Kelly sent the "time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" without really thinking about the language - it was a reference, she said , to how Wildstein had told her this would cause traffic. Kelly maintained Friday she believed the lane closings, on one of the world's busiest bridges, to be part of a Port Authority traffic study and said they weren't done for political retribution.
He wasn't, lasting only two-thirds of an inning before umpires made him leave the game because the finger was dripping blood. Bauer shook his head in disappointment while being tended to on the mound, and he was replaced by Dan Otero after 21 pitches.
These are the maxilla and premaxilla, which make up the upper jaw, and the dentary, which makes up the lower jaw, Tech Times reports.
