Venezuela Opposition Faces Hurdles

Chávez's Heir Apparent Seen Riding Late Leader's Coattails to Victory in Election Expected Next Month

CARACAS—The outpouring of adoration for Venezuela's charismatic late leader Hugo Chávez on Thursday underscored the challenge the country's opposition faced in besting his political heir, Vice President Nicolás Maduro, in snap elections expected next month.

 

Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans jammed a broad avenue leading to a military academy where Mr. Chávez's body, dressed in a military uniform in an open casket, was on display. They paid their respects to the charismatic leader who used high oil prices to create social spending programs that made him enormously popular during his 14 years in power.

 

In Caracas on Thursday, thousands of Venezuelans waited many hours for access to the chapel where late President Hugo Chavez's remains lie in state. Lines ran for miles. WSJ's Kejal Vyas reports via #WorldStream.

 

Many, like 70-year-old grandmother Inés Lara, had traveled for several hours from other cities to catch a glimpse of a man whom they had never met, but who was always on their TV or radio issuing decrees, telling stories, singing, or making jokes.

 

"I arrived last night to see him, but I don't want to see him there [in a coffin]. I want to see him on the stage, full of life, like he was," said Ms. Lara, fighting back tears.

Venezuelan law calls for elections within a month after the death of a president. Mr. Maduro, 50 years old, was tapped by Mr. Chávez as his successor in December in his last public appearance before undergoing cancer surgery. He died on Tuesday at 58 years old from complications related to the disease.

 

Venezuela law calls for an election if a presidency is vacated during the first four years of a six-year term. If the post is vacated in the last two years, the vice president serves the remaining years.

From Coup Leader to President

Mourning Chávez

A supporter of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez cried outside the Military Hospital in Caracas, Venezuela, Tuesday after learning of his death.

 

Mr. Maduro will be sworn in as interim leader Friday night, the head of the National Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, said on state television on Thursday. Mr. Cabello called for a session of the legislative body on Friday at 7 p.m. local time to conduct the ceremony. He assured that authorities are following the provisions laid out in the country's constitution.

Henrique Capriles, 40, the opposition leader who lost to Mr. Chávez in hotly contested October elections, will be officially named the candidate, likely after the weeklong mourning period that the government has declared, people in the opposition said. Mr. Capriles is seen, once again, as the underdog.

 

His real opponent, in many ways, is not Mr. Maduro, but the spirit of Mr. Chávez, a former tank commander who garnered a near-saint-like persona during his presidency. Mr. Chávez never lost a vote in life, and seems likely not to do so in death.

 

"The opposition has to consider that winning an election in 30 days or less against the state machine would be like winning an election against Jesus Christ," said Félix Pifano, a 46-year-old consultant and Caracas resident.

Ramón José Medina, a spokesman for the opposition alliance, known by its Spanish acronym MUD, said Mr. Capriles would be the "obvious first option" as a candidate.

 

No polls have been released yet showing a Maduro-versus-Capriles match-up after the death of Mr. Chávez. But a February poll by local pollster Hinterlaces showed Mr. Maduro beating Mr. Capriles 50%-36%, with the rest undecided.

The opposition will campaign on an economy that is close to crisis, with high inflation and shortages of everything from food to bicycles. Adding to the economic woes is a high homicide rate that makes Venezuela one of the region's most dangerous countries, and a persistently shaky electrical grid that often causes widespread power outages.

 

But the opposition will face an uphill climb putting together a campaign quickly compared with the government, which has formidable campaign machinery at its disposal, including state media and tens of thousands of bureaucrats who are called to act like unofficial campaign workers come election time.

 

In October's election, for instance, Mr. Capriles faced a huge disadvantage on the airwaves because most channels in Venezuela are government-run, and featured a barrage of thinly disguised campaign material. The opposition was limited to three minutes a day of advertising on national television.

 

Making matters more difficult, the opposition may also have to temper its criticisms of Mr. Chávez's allies, who are likely to benefit from the widespread sympathy for the late president.

 

"The question is: How critical can they really be of a man that has just died?" asked Standard Chartered Latin America strategist Bret Rosen. "With the wound of his death so fresh, it will be tricky for them to run their campaign in a way that will get them votes."

 

Already, the government has used the image of Mr. Chávez almost nonstop in the past few months, when the leader was struggling to recover in hospital.

 

"Those who think that just because of his physical departure that Chávez is finished are diametrically wrong. What's coming in the immediate future of Venezuela is more Chávez," Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said on state TV.

Mr. Maduro is an ex-bus driver and union boss who rose through the socialist party ranks over the past 15 years and is still known mostly for his loyalty to El Comandante rather than for his own talents.

 

"There is no transfer of charisma," said Oscar Schemel, head of Hinterlaces pollster.

 

But Oscar Schemel, a pollster, still expects Mr. Maduro to use "the religious emotion for Chávez" to comfortably thwart any opposition challenge.

 

Mr. Capriles is governor of the populous state of Miranda, one of only three governor seats out of a total 23 currently held by the opposition. The athletic former assemblyman ran a hectic "door-to-door" nationwide campaign last year targeting slums and rural areas, traditional Chávez strongholds. He promised to maintain many of the leftist leader's social programs but said he would run them more efficiently while cutting off aid to Mr. Chávez's political allies in places like Cuba, Iran and Belarus.

 

Although Mr. Capriles lost the vote by 11 percentage points, he posed the greatest challenge to date to the president, securing around 44% of the votes. Mr. Capriles, a practicing catholic, also faced a flurry of attacks from state figures who criticized his Jewish ancestry, questioned his sexual orientation and often accused him of being in cahoots with foreign, mostly U.S., interests.

 

Those attacks seem set to continue. Last week, Foreign Minister Elías Jaua accused Mr. Capriles of meeting with enemies of Venezuela during a trip to the U.S. and suggested that whatever deals he was making in New York would lead to "the sale of the country's sovereignty, hunger, misery, exclusion, torture and death."

 

Mr. Capriles rejected the claims and posted on his Facebook FB +4.10% page a smiling photo with his two nephews who he said he was visiting under the caption: "Spending time with two grand conspirators, my dear nephews."

CHANGCHUN, March. 5 (Xinhua) -- A missing baby, who was left in a car that had been stolen on Monday morning in northeast China's Jilin Province, died after being strangled, local police confirmed Tuesday evening.

Zhou Xijun, 48, handed himself to local police at around 5 p.m. Tuesday and confessed that he had strangled the baby and buried him in the snow, according to the Jilin Public Security Department on its official Twitter-like Sina Weibo.

The baby's body has not yet been found.

Zhou, a native in the Gongzhuling City of Jilin, stole a gray Toyota RAV4 SUV around 7 a.m. Monday in Changchun, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province.

Zhou drove the jeep on the highway and found the baby on the backseat. He parked the jeep on the roadside and then strangled the baby.

He absconded and abandoned the baby's clothes and the jeep nearby Gongzhuling City.

The stolen car belongs to a local resident surnamed Xu.

Xu parked the vehicle in front of the supermarket he runs and entered the store to turn on a stove, leaving his two-month-old baby in the back seat without shutting off the car's engine.

Xu came out from the supermarket minutes later only to find that his car was stolen with the baby still inside. He called the police immediately.

"We won't hold you accountable, only if you stop the car and ensure the safety of my child," Xu and his relatives implored via a local traffic radio broadcast.

The stolen car was found near a primary school in Yongfa Township in the city of Gongzhuling Tuesday morning, local police said.

An entrance guard, who reported to the police, said a man in his 30s, about 1.8 meters tall, parked the car there Monday and told him the car was his friend's. The man said he would return to drive the car away at night, but had not appeared until this morning.

According to the latest reports from China Central Television (CCTV)'s Weibo account, the suspected man abandoned the car and took a minibus. The driver of the minibus has been found, but the driver told the police that the man did not have a baby when he got on the minibus.

The license plate of the car and the clothes of the baby were found in a ditch beside a road, 500 meters away from the abandoned car.

The municipal public security bureau of Changchun launched a city-wide hunt and dispatched more than 8,000 police to look for the baby on the streets and in residential communities and parks.

Film celebrity Yao Chen had joined in the search efforts, using her microblog account to encourage more people to look for the child.

Local police are still investigating the case.

Reds and Rebels likely to battle in trenches

The free-flowing rugby seen in the New Zealand Super Rugby derbies has plenty of Australian fans asking why the same never seems to happen when the Australian franchises square off.

 

In the early rounds, it has been the resurgent Blues that have raised the pulse across the Tasman, scoring highly entertaining wins against the Hurricanes and Crusaders.

 

They poured on five tries against Dan Carter's Cantabrians last week and are running more experienced sides clean off their feet.

 

On this side of the ditch, the Australian derbies have struggled to reach such lofty heights, much to the chagrin of spectators. The typically brutal breakdown battles have resumed, while the Reds relied on dogged defence in an error-strewn penalty-a-thon against the Hurricanes.

With no Kurtley Beale, Reds fans may be hoping their side finally breaks the shackles in Melbourne this week against the Rebels. Ant Faingaa, available for selection after suffering a hand injury during trials, isn't so confident.

 

He said the stylistic matches of the Australian sides - and their strength at the breakdown through players like David Pocock and Liam Gill - meant the pace could easily slow.

 

"The New Zealand conference games are played differently. Their processes are different. When we get into the South Africa system, they play differently. Each week we have a different game plan," Faingaa said.

 

"I'm not going to say that this week is going to be too different to the Waratahs match. It will probably end up in a crap fight. But that's how you play rugby and you just sort it out. You get on with business."

 

At the moment a win is a win for the Reds, who would gladly take three from four if they beat Melbourne without halfback Will Genia (knee) and skipper James Horwill (ankle).

 

Both are due back in coming weeks, while Faingaa will return this week, potentially off the bench given the good form of the current centre pairing of Chris F'Sautia and Ben Tapuai.


"We have clawed our ways to win. The way we have been winning games you can't teach that," he said.

 

Quade Cooper has been hit and miss at the start of the season but has shown an increasing number of quality touches with the ball, even if his clearing kicks were well short of par against the Hurricanes.

 

Faingaa said the Reds five-eighth was building for a special game and could just deliver against the Rebels, who gave the Waratahs a fright before the NSW side rolled over the top of them.


"As a player outside him he leaves you on the edge of your seat all the time. But for us you just give him options. If you give him as many as you can he is pretty much going to pick the right one," Faingaa said.

 

"We always talk about how do you work around Quade. You just pick your line and hope he makes a good decision and hits you."

Fulcrum ... James O'Connor of the Rebels.

Malaysia soldiers attack armed Filipino clan in Borneo

Malaysia army commandos prepare to board a helicopter to join an assault near the area where a stand-off with Filipino gunmen took place 5 March 2013, in Tanduo village, Lahad Datu, Sabah, Malaysia  
Helicopters were also seen in the area, Malaysia's state news agency says

Malaysian soldiers have launched an assault on armed members of a Filipino clan in an ongoing conflict that has left at least 27 dead on Borneo island.

 

The ground troops are backed by fighter jets, with reports of several explosions near Lahad Datu, where the group of about 180 Filipinos are.

 

The operation to oust the clan began at 07:00 (23:00 GMT on Monday), the Malaysian government said.

Seven army battalions were deployed to the area on Monday to reinforce police.

 

Among the aircraft used in the assault were an F-18 and a Hawk fighter aircraft, Malaysian state news agency Bernama reports. Helicopters were also seen flying in the area.

 

Malaysian National Police Chief Ismail Omar said they achieved their targets in the offensive and that there were no troop casualties.

 

BBC Map

He did not provide any details about the Filipinos, who he said fired at the Malaysian troops. But a spokesman for the group told Philippine television the men were safe, Reuters news agency reports.

 

The Filipinos landed at a coastal village in Lahad Datu district on the island of Borneo last month, saying that the territory was theirs.

 

Calling themselves the Royal Army of Sulu, the clan members said they were descendants of the Sultanate of Sulu in the southern Philippines, which ruled parts of northern Borneo for centuries, and demanded that the Malaysian government pay more money to lease their land.

 

Malaysia refused their demands and urged the group to return home.

 

On Monday, the Philippine government appealed to Malaysia to exercise maximum restraint and avoid further bloodshed, and sent Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario to Kuala Lumpur for talks.

 

Officials said he would request that a Philippine navy ship be permitted to sail to Lahad Datu to bring the clan members home.

 

In the capital, Manila, protesters are outside the Malaysian embassy, urging a peaceful resolution to the stand-off, reports say.

 

"We've done everything we could to prevent this, but in the end, Kiram's people chose this path," Philippine presidential spokesman Ricky Carandang said on Tuesday of clan leader Jamalul Kiram III.

 

'Pride and sovereignty'


Eight Malaysian troops and 19 clan members have already been killed in the three-week stand-off.

 

Twelve were killed along with two Malaysian policemen when Malaysian security forces tried to tighten the cordon around the occupied village on Friday.

 

The incident sparked violence in another area over the weekend, in which seven clan members and six policemen died.

Mr Kiram's brother has said they are not violating any laws because Sabah is "owned by the Sultan of Sulu" and insisted that they have a right to defend themselves if attacked.

 

However, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said over the weekend that its forces were authorised to "take any action deemed necessary".

Malaysian security forces have been among the casualties

In a statement on Tuesday, Mr Najib said the assault had become necessary because security forces had been killed and Malaysians in Sabah feared for their safety.

 

"After the first attack, I stressed that the intruders must surrender themselves or the security forces will have to act," he said in comments carried by Bernama.

 

He said police had held negotiations with the Filipinos in the hope they would leave peacefully, but that "as the intrusion prolonged it was evident to the authorities that the intruders had no intention of withdrawing from Sabah".

 

"The government has to take the right action in order to preserve the pride and sovereignty of this country," he said in his statement.

 

Mr Najib has come under increasing political pressure in Malaysia to end the incursion, with the opposition criticising him for allowing it to continue. The Philippine government is also coming under pressure to do more to protect the Filipino clan.

 

Sabah shares a sea border with the southern Philippines, which is home to a number of Islamic militant and kidnap-for-ransom groups. The journey between the two can take only a few hours.

 

It formed part of the Sulu Sultanate - which once spread over several southern Philippine islands as well as parts of Borneo - before it was designated a British protectorate in the 1800s.

 

Sabah became part of Malaysia in 1963, and the country still pays a token rent to the Sulu Sultanate each year.

World champion Stephanie Gilmore is through to the quarter-finals of the Roxy Pro

http://www.goldcoast.com.au/images/uploadedfiles/editorial/pictures/2013/03/04/sally-fitzgibbons-roxy-wide.jpg

WORLD surfing champion Stephanie Gilmore is through to the quarter-finals of the season-opening Roxy Pro on the Gold Coast but world No.2 Sally Fitzgibbons faces a sudden-death heat to stay in the competition.


Gilmore overcame pint-sized Hawaiian dynamo Coco Ho in a thrilling third-round match-up on Monday, scoring 17.96 out of 20 to Ho's 17.33.

 

But fellow Australian Fitzgibbons will have to overcome France's Pauline Ado in the fourth round to progress after being beaten by South Africa's Bianca Buitendag in their third-round match up.

 

Fitzgibbons appeared set to cruise into the last eight but was upstaged by tour rookie Buitendag who nailed a 7.33 wave in the dying seconds to steal top spot with a combined two-wave score of 16.00 to Fitzgibbons' 15.34.

 

Joining Gilmore and Buitendag in the last eight will be former world champion Carissa Moore and Australian teenager Tyler Wright.

 

The 18-year-old from NSW had to battle through a sudden-death second round heat in the morning but sealed a last eight berth by defeating American Courtney Conlogue and Hawaii's Alana Blanchard in the third-round.

 

Wright said she was glad to earn a break after struggling with an ankle injury which has required heavy strapping throughout the competition.

 

"I surfed one heat yesterday and two heats today and I'm frigging stuffed,'' Wright told AAP.

 

"I'm so exhausted. I think I'm going to go sit on the couch for the rest of the afternoon and just chill out for a while.

 

"I can already feel it (the ankle). It's sorer than it should be so I guess ice baths for me tonight."

Schools and businesses remained shut and streets were deserted.

 

A car bomb, packed with ball bearings, exploded outside a mosque used by Shias on Sunday evening in the neighbourhood of Abbas Town, damaging two apartment blocks and wounding more than 140 people.

 

No-one has yet claimed responsibility but recent attacks against Shias in the south-western city of Quetta have been claimed by the sectarian Sunni terrorist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi.

 

Standing amid the rubble, Fatima, a resident, told The Express Tribune newspaper: "Our only sin, our only fault, seems to be that we belong to a different sect."

 

Senior politicians united in condemnation.

President Asif Ali Zardari has ordered a report into the incident and expressed sympathy with the bereaved families, according to the country's official news agency.

 

Witnesses said the blast happened as Maghrib prayers were drawing to a close just before 7pm and the explosion could be heard several miles away.

 

They told local newspapers that it took law enforcement agencies more than an hour to reach the site.

 

Last year was the worst on record for the Shia minority in Pakistan, who make up about 20% of the population. More than 400 died in sectarian attacks.

 

So far this year, more than 200 have been killed amid repeated accusations that the government and security forces are turning a blind eye.

 

Pakistan is braced for more violence in the coming weeks. Parliament is due to be dissolved this month when elections will be called – always a volatile time.

 

A scathing editorial in Dawn said the attack was a reminder that Pakistan was no closer to tackling terrorism.

 

"What exactly has been done to find, prosecute and shut down the groups that have perpetrated previous major attacks in Karachi and elsewhere? The answer, known to one and all, is damningly little," it said

How do I extend the life of my PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 laptop battery?"

  • + New PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 Battery Pack must be fully charged before use.If you don't use your laptop for a period of time,you must fully discharge then recharge the PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 battery.
  • + Always use a PANASONIC laptop on a hard surface. Don’t put it on your lap (despite its name) or on thermal insulating materials such as cushions. If you like to work in bed with your laptop, I recommend using a laptop table. I have this one, and I am quite content with it.
  • + Try to avoid charging the battery while you are working with the laptop. Charging the PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 batteries increases your laptop’s temperature. The problem is that the CPU, the graphics card and the hard disk also heat up your laptop, which adds to the temperature increase experienced when charging the PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 battery. Many vendors deliver their laptops with software that allows you to disable charging. You also can remove the PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 battery while you are working on AC current.
  • + Make sure the laptop’s ventilation can always work properly. Don’t place objects before the ventilation systems opening. Don’t run or charge the laptop while it is in its case.
  • + Don’t leave the laptop in the car or under the sun in summer. Use a bike. It keeps your PANASONIC CF-VZSU49 laptop battery cool and your own battery healthy. And too much sun exposure causes only skin cancer anyway
