She called it a "total loss."                        (Image source from: abcnews.go.com) As Michael barreled up the coast, it brought death and devastation with it, leaving 10 people dead in Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia.

An Indian-origin man has been sentenced to eight years in jail by the United Kingdom court for the handling of 19 stolen high-value vehicles worth over 7,00,000 pounds. Chirag Patel, 39, was found guilty of conspiracy to handle stolen goods and ownership of the criminal property at the extremity of a five-week trial at Croydon Crown Court last Friday. "Patel played the leading role in a sophisticated operation to handle high-value, stolen vehicles, motivated only by sheer greed," said Acting Detective Sergeant Billy Clough, who led the investigation for the Metropolitan Police. "He even attempted to convince the jury that he was a legitimate businessman, who had simply been unlucky in obtaining such a vast quantity of stolen items, but the jury saw through this and convicted him of being the key player in a significant criminal enterprise," he said. Patel was imprisoned for conspiracy to handle stolen goods in relation to the cars and keys, for which he received eight years' in jail. He was sentenced to three years' imprisonment for owning criminal property and in relation to over 440,000 pounds of unexplained cash deposits which had been identified from two personal bank accounts in his name. Both the judgments will run simultaneously. "I hope this sentence sends a message that those involved in this type of organized criminality will be pursued robustly," the Met Police said. The tribunal was told that in February 2015, Patel reported to police force that his Porsche had been purloined. Initially, Patel resisted giving his residence address, rather providing details of his parent's address. When he eventually gave his own address, officers attended the property as part of their probe into the stolen car. Here they discovered a number of high-value vehicles in the basement car park. Officers identified that one of the cars had a personalized number plate identical to one seen earlier on a vehicle outside Patel's parent's address. Further inquiries by officers established that the five vehicles in the car park had fake number plates and each was later confirmed to have been purloined. Shortly, Patel was arrested at his address. During a hunt of his possessions, Met Police officers recovered 26 sets of car keys, likewise lists of registrations and vehicles, devices for accessing onboard computers in vehicles, programming keys and a number of tablets, mobile phones, and laptops. Following a detailed investigation, led by officers from Croydon's Serious Acquisitive Crime Unit, a total of 19 stolen vehicles with an estimated value of 728,000 pounds were linked to Patel and later seized, also nine sets of keys which had been stolen from Jaguar Land Rover's plant in Solihull, West Midlands, and a laptop purloined in Streatham area of south London during a burglary. During the trial, judge H H J Gower commended the work of the Scotland Yard officer, Police Constable Andy Garland, whose work identified the first stolen vehicle.

The vehicles had been purloined by unknown individuals during burglaries and keyless thefts across London between October 2012 and January 2015 and were stored at or near addresses owned by Patel and his kin, or with links who looked after the vehicles for him or rented them from him. The identities of the cars were hidden using legitimate insurance details of vehicles which had been written off on official records. By Sowmya Sangam

Gambhir has been in the cricketing field for more than a decade now and is the sole Indian to have scored centuries in five successive Test matches. Asked what keeps him going on the cricket field and if he has any targets before hanging up his boots, Gambhir told IANS over the phone from Mumbai: "No, till the time I keep scoring runs, that makes me happy. You keep doing it. I think scoring runs, winning, coming back to the dressing room happy, being in the winning environment makes me happy." "Till the time I have that passion in me, where I want to come back to a happy dressing room, I want to be a part of that happy environment - I am going to keep going, and the day I feel that there are no emotions involved in it then I would think it's time to go." Born in Delhi, Gambhir began his career in 1999 with the Ranji Trophy and made his first appearance in Test in 2004. In 2011, he started his captaincy with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Under his captaincy, KKR won their IPL title in 2012 and over again in 2014. Gambhir played an integral part in India's wins in the finals of both the 2007 World Twenty20 (75 runs from 54 balls) and the 2011 Cricket World Cup (97 from 122).

When asked if his professional journey been fulfilling or is there any vacuum he can perhaps fill, he said: "You can always fill in something. There is never an end to your journey and probably the day I would feel that has been achieved, I obviously could not have continued playing," he said. "There is a vacuum and there is always something more to achieve in life as well and that is what makes a person work hard and keep going forward as well," said Gambhir, who in the 2018 IPL auction, was bought by the Delhi Daredevils for Rs 2.8 crore, and was assigned as the captain before he stepped down midway into the tournament. Gambhir, who attended the Vicks' new #TouchOfCare campaign launch earlier this week, says in 11 years, IPL has turned more strenuous and challenging. "That will always happen because new players will come. Challenges will be different, players and franchises will get smarter. From the first to the eleventh edition, IPL has got tougher, better and more challenging." "That is where the biggest challenge for any sportsman is. If you can keep growing with that challenge, that is what will keep you going," the southpaw said. Overall in his career, there are more things to achieve, Gambhir says. "I'm not going to say that there is not anything left to achieve. Obviously, there is something to achieve. That keeps me going," he said. By Sowmya Sangam

245 Separated Immigrant Children Still in Custody, Say Officials October 16, 2018 10:00

A total of 245 separated children from their undocumented immigrant families were still in the United States custody, officials said in a court filing. According to government figures, most of the 245 children in custody have parents who were removed from the U.S., reports CNN. Of those, only 18 children are currently in the pipeline to reunite with their parents in their countries of origin, the court filings said on Monday night. According to officials, the deported parents of 125 children in custody have said they don't want their children to be returned to the countries of origin and there were 32 others in government custody for whom the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has not yet rendered notice of whether parents want to reunite or decline reunification. The new numbers came out as the U.S. President Donald Trump's administration reckons a new pilot program that could result in the separations of children and parents over again.  A status hearing in the family separations case is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. In June, the U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite most of the families it had divided, including parents and children who had been separated as a result of the administration's now-reversed "zero tolerance" policy at the border and some separations that took place before that policy was put in place, reports CNN. Since then, 2,070 children have been discharged from government custody and reunited with parents, according to Monday's court filing. By Sowmya Sangam
