DARWIN, Australia -- The commander of more than 1,500 U.S. Marines in northern Australia was relieved of his duties after police caught him driving under the influence of alcohol, the Marine Corps said Monday. Col. James Schnelle, 48, pleaded guilty in the Darwin Local Court on Monday to driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.102 percent after his breath was tested by police in the early hours of Sunday. The reading was more than double the legal limit in Australia of 0.05 percent. The commander of the Marine Rotational Force in Darwin was "relieved of his duties on Sept. 30 due to a loss of trust and confidence," U.S. Marines First Lt. David Mancilla said in a statement.

Users are reporting on Reddit and social media their Apple Watch stopped functioning properly on Sunday morning, shortly after the country moved into daylight savings time. Affected Apple Watch units were forced into a reboot loop, which consumed the battery and made it almost impossible to recharge or restart manually. A Reddit post about the problem offers the suggestion that the Infograph Activity complication may be the cause, with one user proposing switching a different watch face via the Watch app as a means to escape the reboot cycle. The same poster notes selecting the Infograph Modular face with the … [Read more...] about Apple Watch Series 4 suffers from daylight savings bug rebooting loop in Australia

PHOTO: AFP How do we even assess the embarrassing performance exhibited by Pakistan at the 2018 Asia Cup? If we briefly sum it up, we can definitely detect complacency, lack of mental durability and a mismanagement of human resources. Now, after its heart-wrenching exit from the event, Pakistan cricket’s next adventure is a two-match Test series against Australia, which starts tomorrow. The Inzamamul Haq-led selection committee has announced a 17-member squad to face the team that ranks third in Test rankings. However, it seems the selection committee hasn’t learned from past mistakes and has picked players that are either inexperienced or unsuitable for the longest format of the game. The following is an assessment … [Read more...] about Men in Green vs Mighty Australia: Has Pakistan selected the best team for the job?
