John Lewis customers are to see the number of free cakes and hot drinks they receive as part of a loyalty scheme reduced in the run up to Christmas. Launched last October, the retailer's rewards programme My John Lewis has around one million members, who have been receiving a range of tailored perks, including free tea and cake in John Lewis's restaurants each month, entry into regular prize draws and invites to "exclusive" local events. The retailer said that its programme is "still evolving", and it will be reducing the number of hot drink and cake vouchers it sends out so that customers can continue to experience high standards of service as its cafes and restaurants get busier as Christmas approaches. It said that not all members will receive the same rewards, as they are based on a variety of factors including how frequently they shop at John Lewis, how much they spend, and what they buy. John Lewis said in a statement: "As we approach our busy Christmas period, we will be reducing the number of hot drink and cake vouchers issued to customers as our cafes and restaurants become extremely busy during this time and we want to make sure our customers experience the high standards of service they expect from us. "All my John Lewis member rewards are continually reviewed and the rewards our members receive in future do depend on a variety of factors." The retailer said it is "constantly seeking new ways of saying 'thank you' to our members" and it will be introducing new rewards over the coming year. It added: "These will be launched alongside our hot drink and cake voucher, which will still be a reward which many members will enjoy." "People are really feeling the pinch and in the run up to Christmas they are more likely to have popped into the store for a free cuppa and slice of cake."

At an inquest into the death of Tomas Nowakowski, 38, Marie Cassidy, the State pathologist, said yesterday that evidence of acute alcohol intoxication was a contributory cause to his death. At the inquest in Ennis, Prof Cassidy said that Mr Nowakowski's alcohol levels were 375mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood drivers found to be in excess of 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood face a one year ban on first conviction. She said that there was a strong smell of alcohol from Mr Nowakowski and toxicology reports suggest that he was considerably intoxicated and likely to have been unsteady on his feet. At Ennis District Court last year month, mother of 10, Shirley Doherty was fined 1,000 after pleading guilty to four charges connected to the fatal hit and run of Mr Nowakowski on May 13 last year at Tobartaoscain, Ennis. The married father of one had been living in Ireland for the previous six years and worked locally in the Hillbilly's fast food restaurant in Ennis. Mr Nowakowski's wife, Patricia, and child were in Poland on holidays at the time of the accident. Mr Nowakowski was lying across a speed bump on a road in a residential area when Mrs Doherty drove over him at around 10pm. The morning after the incident, Ms Doherty presented herself to Ennis Garda Station with her car in an unaltered state. Prof Cassidy said she was satisfied Mr Nowakowski died from crush injuries as a result of the incident. She said she was also satisfied Mr Nowakowski suffered no injuries to suggest he was upright at the time of impact. Coroner Isobel O'Dea adjourned the inquest before a jury to May 8.

Security Minister Genero Garcia Luna said cameramen Javier Canales and Alejandro Hernandez were being held in the northern state of Coahuila by members of the Sinaloa cartel, Mexico's most powerful drug trade organization. The two journalists were abducted on Monday after covering a prison scandal in the nearby state of Durango in which inmates are accused of being hired guns for a local cartel. "They intimidated us all day and all night," Hernandez said at a news conference in Mexico City. "They hit us in the head with a board." A third journalist abducted around the same time as Canales and Hernandez was freed on Thursday following negotiations with his captors, Garcia Luna said at the news conference. Garcia Luna said the kidnappers fled as police closed in on the safe house on Saturday, and none were captured. Across Mexico, a war between rival cartels for control of the multibillion dollar drug trade has killed more than 26,000 people since late 2006, when President Felipe Calderon launched a war on drugs, worrying Washington and investors. Attacks on the media have mounted as drug gangs seek to silence or intimidate journalists who report on the drug killings. "They were trying to have a way to force (networks) to broadcast messages," he said. Local media reported earlier in the week that a fourth journalist in the area had been abducted around the same time, but it was not clear if this was true. Since 2006, at least 30 journalists have been killed in Mexico, according to Mexican media. Sometimes they texted, sometimes they called, but the message was always the same: "Give us money." Months before they took control of the Iraqi city of Mosul in June, Islamic State militants were already busy collecting money to finance their campaign of setting up a 7th century style caliphate.

Wmns Nike Free Run 3 Cool Grey Silver Sail University Red Last year a few weeks before the race a fire on the Seaside Height Boardwalk wreaked havoc to the area and jeopardized the race. The registration and post race party location was severely damaged by the fire and the boardwalk at the start was literally destroyed. This year the race faced another challenge. A few weeks before the start in a meeting with Island Beach State Park officials Race Director, Patty Hancock of Toms River was informed that due to construction at the entrance of the park that the race could not go into the park. According to Patty she was devastated by the news and spent the next week trying to figure out an alternative route. She never thought of cancelling the race which would have been the easy alternative. Through numerous meetings and on site measurements an alternative was devised. The new route had the runners start on the boardwalk and head south toward Isnad Beach State Park and then head back and do a second loop before finishing by the start area in front of the beachcomber on the boardwalk. There was also an accompanying 5K race which needed to be incorporated into the event. Patty and her team from the Ocean Running Club fit that in as well. The hard work and dedication paid off with a very successful event. start in front of the Beachcomber and immediately following the playing of the National Anthem Patty gave the runners the command to start. Loudspeakers on top of the Beachcomber could be heard playing loudly the now familiar runners anthem of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run". It took several, minutes for the huge field to clear the start and head south. Exactly 10 minutes later the 5K race started. Pat Asay of the Ocean Running Club gave the runners their instructions and the command to start. The 5K headed north toward the end of the Seaside heights Boardwalk and then south toward the end of the Seaside Park boardwalk before heading back to a finish at the Beachcomber. First to cross the finish line in the 5K was Scott Sarno in a time of 17:53. He was followed by Mark Meliea in 19:57 and then Brian Mervin in 21:04. For the women it was Melissa Brady breaking the tape in 23:17 followed by Isabella Wiley in 223:31 and then Paige Motusesky in 24:11. In the main event the half marathon breaking the tape was Justin Simard of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a time of 1:13:01. This was Justin's third straight win at the race. After the race Justin remarked that the wind was a factor heading north toward the finish for the last several miles. Justin was followed by Andrew Van Hoogenstyn also of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a time of 1:15:00 and then Bryan McDonnell of Kearny, New Jersey in a time of 1:15:48 to round out the top three men. For the women it was Melissa Denman of Montague, New Jersey in a time of 1:30:04. She was followed by Kim Martineau of New York City, New York in 1:30:50 and then Lauren Eckberg of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1:35:23. After each race awards were presented to the overall and age group winners with Race Director, Patty Hancock officiating. Runners were celebrating inside the Beachcomber and outside on the expansive deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
