Dois desconhecidos invadiram o prédio do Destacamento da Polícia Militar de Água Azul do Norte. O crime foi na madrugada de segunda-feira, 31, por volta das 4h. Os criminosos renderam o soldado PM Dantas, que se encontrava dentro do destacamento, e depois jogaram gasolina e atearam fogo no prédio, que ficou completamente destruído.
Segundo informações do coronel Dilson Barbosa Júnior, comandante do 17º Batalhão de Carajás, a destruição do destacamento da Polícia Militar em Água Azul do Norte foi uma ação praticada por bandidos incomodados com a atuação da equipe de policiais militares que atuam na cidade.
Ao renderem os PMs, os incendiários perguntaram pelo comandante do destacamento, o sargento Divino, que na ocasião do crime havia saído para levar um preso à delegacia de Xinguara, a 80km de Água Azul do Norte.
“Mesmo com a destruição do prédio, os policiais militares continuaram trabalhando na cidade sob o comando do sargento Divino”, disse o coronel Dilson Barbosa Júnior, comandante do 17º Batalhão Carajás.
Na segunda-feira, por volta das 4h, uma pessoa chegou ao destacamento avisando que estava havendo uma briga em determinado local da cidade.
Quando o policial Dantas abriu a porta para atender o chamado, foi rendido e desarmado pelo desconhecido. Em seguida, o comparsa entrou em ação e o PM foi agredido a tapas e a socos no rosto. Sem nada poder fazer, os policiais viram quando os desconhecidos jogaram gasolina e atearam fogo no prédio.
Cinco motos que estavam apreendidas, um fuzil 762 e uma carabina ponto 30, da guarnição, foram destruídos pela ação do fogo.
A camioneta da PM que estava estacionada na garagem ao lado foi retirada antes de ser queimada. Um boletim de ocorrência foi registrado na Delegacia de Polícia Civil de Xinguara. (Diário do Pará)
Luiz Sandoval chega na sede da Polícia Federal, em São Paulo ( Alessandro Shinoda/Folhapress)
O ex-presidente do grupo Silvio Santos, Luiz Sandoval, compareceu na manhã desta terça-feira na sede da Polícia Federal, em São Paulo, para prestar depoimento sobre seu envolvimento no caso Panamericano. Sandoval saiu de lá indiciado por formação de quadrilha, gestão fraudulenta e por prestar informações falsas ao sistema financeiro, crime previsto na lei do colarinho branco.
Segundo o advogado de Sandoval, Aberto Zacharias Toron, o delegado Milton Fornazari Junior, que dirige o inquérito, reconheceu que o executivo não participou do ato de fraude, portanto não será indiciado como tal.
A partir de agora, Sandoval aguardará o envio dos laudos ao Ministério Público, que decidirá se o executivo será ou não alvo de uma ação penal. "Mas não há qualquer previsão de quando isso acontecerá", afirmou Toron. "Ele está se sentindo profundamente injustiçado", disse o advogado.
Além de Sandolval, foram indiciados ao longo das últimas semanas cinco executivos do banco que teriam algum tipo de envolvimento na fraude de 4,3 bilhões de reais, descoberta no final de 2010. O ex-presidente do Panamericano e cunhado de Silvio Santos, Rafael Palladino, compareceu nesta segunda-feira na sede da PF, após ser acusado formalmente de seis crimes financeiros, incluindo formação de quadrilha, desvio de recursos e lavagem de dinheiro. O executivo trabalhou por mais de 20 anos no grupo.
Os outros nomes são Wilson Roberto de Aro, ex-diretor financeiro; Adalberto Saviolli, ex-diretor de crédito; Marcos Augusto Monteiro, contabilista do banco; e Eduardo de Ávila Pinto Coelho, ex-diretor de tecnologia. Ainda no grupo de indiciados está o nome de Alexandre Toros, que teria ajudado Palladino nas fraudes.

(Reuters) - Sony Corp on Wednesday slashed its full-year operating profit outlook by 90 percent to its lowest level in three years as Thai floods disrupt camera production at the Japanese company, which is already struggling with a soaring yen and sluggish television sales in the U.S. and Europe.
Sony blamed the deluge in Thailand for cutting 25 billion yen in expected earnings and reduced its forecast for TV sales by almost a tenth to 20 million sets.
Sony, which is heading for its eighth straight annual loss in its TV division, is revamping the unit, but a lack of details since the plan was announced three months ago and poor sales are keeping investors downbeat.
It said earlier this week that it would split its television business into three divisions of outsourcing, LCD TVs and next-generation TVs from November 1 in its latest attempt to turn around the loss-making operation.
Sony is also considering dissolving its flat-screen venture with Samsung Electronics Co, which will enable it to cut panel supply costs and improve its TV business earnings, according to sources familiar with the matter. It has yet, however, to unveil any plan.
The revised forecast of 20 billion yen ($255 million) for the year ending in March compares with its previous estimate of 200 billion yen in profit and market expectations of a 166 billion yen profit in a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S poll of 20 analysts.
On a net basis, Sony cut its forecast to a loss of 90 billion yen, from its previous forecast for a net profit of 60 billion yen.
Once a symbol of Japan's high-tech might, Sony is struggling to come up with hit devices and finds itself outmaneuvered in TVs by Samsung Electronics and in the booming smartphone market by Apple.
Sony is yet another addition to a lengthening list of Japanese firms that have posted poor quarterly results due to factors including the strong yen, floods in Thailand and weak demand in the United States and Europe.
The list includes names such as Honda Motor Co, Panasonic Corp, Nintendo Co Ltd and Nomura Holdings.
The maker of PlayStation games machines and Bravia televisions posted an operating loss of 1.6 billion yen for the July-September period, versus market expectations of a 40 billion yen profit and a 68.7 billion yen profit a year earlier.
Shares of Sony tumbled 3.6 percent to 1,520 yen ahead of the results on Wednesday. Sony shares fell 46 percent between the beginning of the year and Tuesday's close, compared with a 14 pct fall in the broader market.

If past years (or recessions) have sucked up your travel budget, plan smart and get more in bang for your buck in these value destinations, from Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2012.
Cities of the American northeast – New York, Boston and Washington DC – might not be the world’s cheapest, but you can save a bundle by taking advantage of the recent boom of budget bus companies. These buses, which also connect with Philadelphia, Toronto, Pittsburgh and even Charlotte, are a steal at about US$5 one way (and sometimes just US$1). Considering most destinations are ped-friendly (with good public transport and walkable centres), you can hop-scotch across the region without booking a flight or hiring a car. Better still, the ride’s comfortable, there’s free wi-fi, buses leave on time and there’s often plenty of room.
Japan had a rough 2011, with the March earthquake and a hard year for tourism, so travelling there is not only a good thing to do, but can actually make financial sense. Compared with destinations like London, Paris or New York, its attractions and accommodation are often much cheaper. In Tokyo, for example, it’s possible to find simple, Japanese-style minshuku guesthouses from ¥3000 (US$37). Also, many attractions are free (eg temples, botanic gardens) or just cheap (the Tokyo National Museum is a fifth the cost of Tower of London), while attractions like the Nagano ski runs or Disney tickets are cheaper than Alps lift tickets or Mickey Mouse’s entry in Anaheim.
The International Tourism Centre for Japan lists excellent-value minshuku guesthouses.
Marco Polo was impressed – and you will be too, once you experience the stunning scenery of this safe, stable Central Asian nation. And it can be accessed at dirt-cheap rates, even including the hire of a car and driver. Getting a Russian Lada for several days can be arranged for about US$300, which opens up the Afghan border and Pamir Highway, one of the world’s greatest road trips. You’ll stop off at hot springs, 2000-year-old stone structures and cartoon-style forts, finishing your days at village homestays or yurts for about US$10 per person. For even less, make a DIY trek to emerald lakes close to the Uzbek border.
Murgab Ecotourism Association has community-based yurtstays for about US$5 per person.
The town that put the ‘Port’ in Portugal (as well as the port in your wine glass) is a seriously good deal. Connected with much of Europe via budget airlines, Porto is a lovely town of atmospheric narrow lanes, village-like plazas and buildings decked in azuelo tile. You can stay in antique-filled inns with river views from just €25 (US$37.75), take a ride on an historical tram (€1; US$1.40) or head to the beach near Afurada village by ferry (€1). A few hours east is the traditional wine district of Alto Douro, where you cruise in a flat-bottomed boat (€20; US$28.50) and sleep in 200-year-old homes (€60; US$86). And did we mention the port?
The Ribeira district has dozens of lodges offering cheap wine tastings and tours (eg Vinologia).
Mountains, cannibal caves, dinosaur footprints, crafts markets – and you get around by pony. Welcome to Lesotho, the ‘kingdom of the sky’. Completely enveloped by South Africa, it’s a cheaper proposition than its powerful neighbour, with pony treks its main tourist drawcard. The best deals are to the west at off-the-beaten-track Malealea, about 60km southeast of the capital Masuru, where multiday treks lead into a massive mountain range and landscape coloured musk and orange. It’s extraordinary – and cheaper than pony treks in the east. Overnight trips, including a pony, food and a guide, begin at US$50 per day.
Malealea Lodge is a century-old trading post transformed into a well-run lodge with pony treks and good meals.
Booking a five-day Amazon cruise from abroad can run to US$3500 per person, not including flights. That can be cut at least in half by dealing directly with folks in Iquitos – the world’s biggest city not reachable by road. Local outfits can tailor trips to venture into piranha fishing spots, look for pink dolphins in the wildlife-rich Allpahuayo Mishana National Reserve (stopping at native villages to mingle with Amazonians) or reach the rustic Otorongo Lodge on the Colombian border. Meanwhile, Iquitos is interesting in itself: Eiffel (of Eiffel Tower) fame came to build rubber baron’s mansions. The best time to visit is October or November, when it’s still dry but before summer crowds.
For examples of trips on offer, check out Dawn on the Amazon.
The city by the bay might expensive to live in, but San Francisco practically begs you to visit. Little boutique hotels near Union Square can be had for under US$100 – a fraction of what you’ll pay in New York or London. Beyond the street cars (the historical ones on Market St are cheaper than the touristy cable cars), BART has cheap, easy links to San Francisco’s airport – so no need for US$60 taxi rides. Food-wise, San Francisco’s ‘mission burrito’ (stuffed with rice, beans and carne asada) goes for US$5 in the bar-filled Mission. And there’s so much cheap and free stuff to do: walking on the Golden Gate, Pacific beaches, vintage arcade Musée Mécanique and a host of free art galleries.
Check out the Diego Rivera Gallery, featuring a 1931 trompe l’oeil mural.
There’s always a race for the next big thing in Europe, and budget-friendly Macedonia is rising in popularity for its mountainous setting of vineyards, lakes and Byzantine churches; it’s also a mainstay stop-off on Balkan trips. Beyond the lively capital Skopje, the spiritual heart is three road hours’ west at Ohrid, a lovely town with a medieval castle looking over church-lined hilly streets and the lush coastline of Lake Ohrid. Private rooms are easy to find for €10 euro or less, while opulent historic villas turned into B&Bs run for under €50 (US$71.50). Bus services run to sites along the lake coast, including Galičica National Park with hiking, boating and swimming spots.

Vietnam is always good value, but you can now skip the package trips arranged in Ho Chi Minh City that tread the same worn-out routes. It’s become easier, more rewarding and just as cheap to go on DIY multiday adventures to destinations like Ben Tre, Chao Doc and the floating markets of Vinh Long, and some less-seen ones like Ha Tien or Tra Vinh. Go by air-conditioned bus or hire moto-taxis as you go; the latter know ferry crossings on roads not on any map. Boat trips go for US$5 to US$10, while most guesthouses run US$10 to US$25.
Take a ferry or plane from Rach Gia to the beaches of Phu Quoc Island, then fly back to Ho Chi Minh City. Short flights are cheap – under US$50.
Most equate the Yucatan with the beaches, but the best place to experience the food, life and architecture of the ‘real Mexico’ is a few hours inland at this lively city. Historical homes have been turned into inns, often for the fraction of the cost of Cancún resorts. The Spanish colonial centre of Plaza Grande has 16th-century cathedrals and free art museums; on weekends it becomes the scene of dance, food and parties. Day trips to five Mayan sites on the public Ruta Puuc bus loop go for about US$40, or head to the village of Celestún and hire a motorboats (US$17 per person) to see hundreds of pink flamingos in the mangroves.
Mérida’s guesthouses are a bargain; rooms at Hotel Trinidad start at US$21.
A BBC World Service survey in 25 countries has found strikingly different attitudes to the economic outlook between rich and developing countries.
In the rich world, consumers were pessimistic, while in emerging economies people were more upbeat.
It is a pattern that reflects the very uneven recovery from the recent global recession.
More than 25,000 people were surveyed by the polling firm Globescan.
Japan, France and Britain emerged as particularly gloomy. The percentage expecting good times in all three countries was in single figures. More than half expected bad times.Recession danger
The picture across the rich world was one of pessimists outnumbering the optimists, though by smaller margins.
The one exception to this pattern was Germany, where 36% expected good or mostly good times, well ahead of those who were downbeat. Even there, the optimists were outnumbered by those expecting a mix of good and bad times ahead.
In the developing world, optimists outnumbered pessimists in nearly every country surveyed. In Nigeria more than seventy per cent expected good times. The results were strongly upbeat in Kenya and Egypt as well.
There was one exception, Pakistan, where pessimists were slightly more numerous. In Russia, Chile and Ecuador, the optimists were only just ahead.
The difference in attitudes does broadly reflect recent economic performance: strong growth in many emerging economies, sluggishness in the rich world.
It is also consistent with most forecasts, which suggest an increasing danger of at least some developed economies sliding back into recession.
The research was done between July and September this year.
Since then the situation in the world's biggest economic trouble spot - the eurozone - has moved on and in some respects the uncertainty there has deepened.

BEIJING | Wed Nov 2, 2011 2:45am EDT
(Reuters) - Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said his family was "constantly attacked" in Maoist political campaigns that convulsed the country over past decades, giving a rare glimpse into his tumultuous past as he prepares to leave office.
China's wary leaders rarely talk about their pasts. But the premier opened up in comments to students and teachers that were published in the China Education News on Wednesday, saying his father was dismissed as a teacher and sent to tend pigs.
"After I went to high school and university, my family suffered constant attacks in the successive political campaigns," Wen told the audience at Nankai High School, his alma mater in the north port city of Tianjin near Beijing.
Wen, 69, has stood out among China's ruling Communist Party leaders as the most persistent advocate of measured political relaxation under party control, and his published comments to the students perhaps help explain why.
Wen comes from a family of teachers, and during Mao Zedong's era of fervent Communism, the party attacked and demoted citizens deemed to have bad "class" backgrounds or suspect pasts. Wen's father and grandfather were among the victims.
"In 1960, my father was also investigated for so-called historical problems. He could no longer teach and was sent to work on a farm on the outskirts of the city to tend pigs, and then later worked in a library," Wen told the students when he visited the school on October 25, according to the transcript in the Chinese-language paper.
Surviving files about Wen's grandfather from the school he taught at showed he constantly had to write "self-criticisms" before he died of cerebral haemorrhage in 1960, Wen said.
"I was the one who carried him on my back to the hospital," he said.
His grandfather's files "are filled with one self-criticism after another, written in small, neat characters," he added.
Wen retires as premier in early 2013 as part of a generational leadership shift that begins late next year.
As Wen prepares to leave power, he has made a habit of calling much more forthrightly for political reform than more cautious comrades in the Communist Party elite. But his proposals have remained vague, and Wen lacks the backing from other leaders needed to act on such ideas.
For skeptics, Wen's hazy words are vanity, burnishing his reputation without venturing to secure real change. More sympathetic observers have said Wen is defending a moderate agenda that could gain ground after the leadership transition.
"I come from the people, and had a hard childhood, so I feel sympathy for all poor people and have given all that I can for the sake of their happiness," he said.
"My childhood was spent in war and hardship, and the poverty, turmoil and famine left an ineradicable imprint on my young soul."
China has made huge economic strides, he said, but remains beset by imbalances, inequality and corruption. "Income distribution is unfair, and in some areas social conflicts are very sharp, with mass incidents occurring."
"Mass incidents" is the government's euphemism for protests, demonstrations and strikes.
"If a government ignores the public and people's well-being, it ignores its foundations," said Wen. "Fairness and justice are the pillars of society, and if they are lost, then the great house of society will collapse."

Reforming benefits could undo attempts to improve life chances in Wales, First Minister Carwyn Jones will warn.
Efforts by the Welsh government to boost social mobility could be undermined by changes to the welfare system in Westminster, he will say.
The UK government is pursuing plans to cut £7bn in welfare spending, including changes to incapacity, housing benefit and tax credits.
It said reforms would encourage people into work, some for the first time.
The Welfare Reform Bill, currently going through parliament, includes some of the most radical reforms since the creation of the welfare state.
Among planned changes are an overall cap on a family's benefits of £26,000 and new tests for those claiming incapacity benefit. A single Universal Credit will replace six income-related work-based benefits.
More than £2.5bn was spent on sickness benefits in Wales last year and the most recent figures showed there were 78,300 people in Wales on Jobseekers' Allowance in September - 6,500 more than the same time last year.Free prescriptions
Carwyn Jones First Minister
We are concerned that... the impact of changes could drive people into greater poverty, particularly those most vulnerable in our society”
The benefits system is not devolved, but the Welsh government says some of its most notable policies - such as free prescriptions and free bus passes for the over-60s and disabled people - are meant to improve social mobility.
Mr Jones will tell a welfare to work conference in Cardiff on Wednesday that the Welsh government fears benefits changes could squeeze the least well off.
Advisers to the Welsh government are monitoring the cumulative impact of welfare changes.
Mr Jones will welcome the goal of creating a simpler and more transparent benefit system.
"However, we are concerned that rather than achieving the ambitions set out by the UK government, the impact of changes could drive people into greater poverty, particularly those most vulnerable in our society."
He will add: "We are worried about areas where proposals with far-reaching consequences appear to be based on scant evidence.
"We have concerns that the UK government benefit changes have the potential to undermine or remove the efforts of my government towards greater social inclusion and social mobility."
A spokeswoman for the Department for Work and Pensions said: "Our wide-ranging reforms will have a dynamic impact on some of the poorest families, encouraging people into work, many for the first time and improving the life chances of children at an early age.
"Universal Credit will make work pay and lift almost a million people, including 350,000 children out of poverty."
Frank McCourt, the embattled owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Major League Baseball agreed late Tuesday on a plan to sell the iconic team, which filed for bankruptcy last June after Commissioner Bud Selig rejected its plan to sell its future TV rights.
In a statement short on details, the Dodgers and M.L.B. said they had agreed to a “court supervised process to sell the team and its attendant media rights in a manner designed to realize maximum value for the Dodgers and their owner, Frank McCourt.”
McCourt will run the sale through his adviser, the Blackstone Group LP.
The settlement, which comes four weeks before a scheduled trial in bankruptcy court, appears to satisfy both sides. Selig gets McCourt out of baseball and can possibly steer the sale to a preferred buyer. Through court papers, he has accused McCourt of mismanaging the team into bankruptcy and diminishing its value.
McCourt had portrayed Selig’s refusal to let him sell his TV rights as proof that he was being treated unfairly compared with other owners. He loudly objected to Selig’s installation of a monitor to oversee the team’s finances and operations last spring, likening the action to a government’s eminent domain seizure of private property.
But McCourt needed the money denied him by Selig, and the settlement gives him a way out of his financial hole. The sale of the team will let him pay his wife, Jamie, a $130 million divorce settlement. He might even emerge with some profits.
The Dodgers and its assets could fetch at least $1 billion — despite a season in which attendance dropped so far that the team offered season ticket holders discounts of up to 60 percent to renew their seats next season.
Marc Ganis, a sports industry consultant, said: “Frank McCourt no longer being owner of the Dodgers was inevitable from the moment he and his wife began their nasty divorce battle. Frank did not want to recognize this reality, but it appears he has finally come to terms with it.”
Spokesmen for the Dodgers and M.L.B. declined to comment.
The hostilities between baseball and the Dodgers reached their peak in June when Selig spurned McCourt’s attempt to extend his team’s rights with Fox’s Prime Ticket cable channel for 17 years for at least $2 billion, including a $385 million upfront payment.
Soon after, the Dodgers filed for bankruptcy. But as recently as last week, the rancor was still evident. Baseball accused McCourt of siphoning $189 million from the team. The Dodgers denied the claim.
The joint statement by the Dodgers and M.L.B. did not specify the role Fox will play in the sale of the media rights. Fox’s existing deal with the Dodgers ends in 2013, and it was hoping to renew the contract during an exclusive negotiating period late next year.
And when the Dodgers recently sought the bankruptcy court’s approval to auction its media rights as soon as possible — believing it would have many suitors seeking to pay far more than the current deal — Fox sued the team saying that it would violate its contract. A Fox spokesman did not return a message seeking a comment.
A radioactive gas has been detected at Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, the facility's operator says.
Tepco said xenon had been found in reactor two, which was previously thought to be near a stable shutdown.
There has been no increase in temperature or pressure, but the discovery may indicate a problem with the reactor.
Boric acid - used to suppress nuclear reactions - has been injected as a precaution.
Ever since the meltdowns in March triggered by the huge earthquake and tsunami, engineers have been working to bring the Fukushima reactors under control.
The government and Tepco - the Tokyo Electric Power Company - have said they are on track to achieve a stable shutdown by the end of the year.
But now they have found what could be a problem - radioactive xenon gas detected in a filter in reactor two.
Since it has a short half-life, it indicates a possibility of resumed nuclear fission in recent days.
Tepco says the temperature of the reactor, which has been below boiling point, has not increased, indicating any reaction would be small.
It is not ruling out a false reading but boric acid, which suppresses fission, was injected into the reactor overnight.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in Japan a reactor has been switched on for the first time since the disaster.
Safety fears mean local authorities have been refusing permission for restarts after routine maintenance.
Dozens of facilities are offline amid concern about electricity shortages.

Um grupo de estudantes invadiu por volta da 0h desta quarta-feira o prédio da reitoria da USP (Universidade de São Paulo), na Cidade Universitária, zona oeste de São Paulo. A ocupação ocorre após assembleia realizada na noite de ontem (1º), na qual foi decidida a desocupação de um dos prédios da FFLCH (Faculdade de Filosofia Letras e Ciências Humanas).
Ato a favor da PM reúne 300 estudantes no campus da USP
Veja imagens da manifestação em favor da PM
USP vai manter acordo com PM, apesar de pressão de estudantes
Ninguém está acima da lei, diz Alckmin sobre conflito na USP
Em minutos, estudantes com os rostos cobertos com camisas e alguns armados com paus, pedras e cavaletes forçaram o portão da reitoria e invadiram o prédio. Em seguida, gritavam convidando outros para ser juntar em um acampamento montado no saguão central do prédio.
Na rua em frente ao prédio da reitoria os estudantes montaram barricadas com pedras e pedaços de madeira para impedir a aproximação de veículos.
Por 559 votos favoráveis, a assembleia dos estudantes da USP decidiu que os alunos devem desocupar um dos prédios da FFLCH (Faculdade de Filosofia Letras e Ciências Humanas). Foram 458 votos contrários à saída.
A reunião, que terminou por volta das 23h, lotou o vão do prédio do curso de história, na Cidade Universitária, zona oeste de São Paulo. Os alunos --que debateram por volta de cinco horas-- também decidiram criar um calendário com os novos rumos do movimento. Um novo ato foi marcado para o próximo dia 8.
Os contrários à desocupação alegavam que a saída dos estudantes enfraqueceria o movimento. Já os favoráveis diziam que a ocupação dividia a opinião dos alunos e não poderia ser encarada como moeda de troca com a reitoria.

|Assembleia de estudantes no prédio dos cursos de história e geografia da USP|
A assembleia começou logo após o término da reunião dos estudantes do curso de história, que defenderam uma Guarda Universitária gerida pelas entidades representativas da USP --DCE, Sintusp e Adusp-- e não pela reitoria.
Foi decidido ainda o repúdio à Polícia Militar e a proposta de que o debate sobre a segurança no campus seja levado a todas as unidades da universidade.
A polêmica envolvendo estudantes e Polícia Militar começou na última quinta-feira, quando três estudantes de geografia foram flagrados com maconha no estacionamento da faculdade. A abordagem desencadeou um confronto entre policiais e alunos, quando estes reagiram contra a prisão dos colegas.
Desde então, alunos ocupavam um prédio administrativo da FFLCH. Os estudantes afirmam que a polícia tem realizado abordagens truculentas e perseguição, até dentro dos prédios.
