British caver 'a hero' and should have won against Elon Musk, friends say

British caver 'a hero' and should have won against Elon Musk, friends say A British caver who last year helped in the rescue of a Thai football team remains “a hero” and should have won his libel case against the “publicity-seeking” Elon Musk, his friends and fellow rescuers have said.  Vernon Unsworth sought £145m in damages from the Tesla founder, arguing in court that his “defamatory” tweet calling him a “pedo guy” after the rescue of the 12 boys and their football coach damaged his reputation. However, a Los Angeles court on Friday unanimously ruled in favour of Mr Musk, worth an estimated £18 billion, as the judge said that the comments did not meet the legal standard for defamation. The pair became embroiled in a row after Mr Unsworth, an experienced cave explorer, branded Mr Musk's offer of a small submarine to help with the rescue effort a “PR stunt”. Mr Musk responded by tweeting to his 22.5 million followers: “sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it” , before deleting it off his account. Tim Acton, part of the British diving supply team who brought oxygen tanks to the football team in June 2018, yesterday  told The Telegraph that Mr Musk's proposal did in fact amount to a “publicity stunt”. “Musk was trying to send a glorified scuba tank that probably would not have been able to go through the ceiling anyway,”   he said.  “The feeling among many of the rescuers and volunteers was that he was getting involved as part of a publicity stunt.” Elon Musk attends the closing arguments of his trial in the defamation case  Credit: Mona Shafer Edwards/Reuters Tim's father, John Acton, from Essex, said that Mr Unsworth will always remain a “hero” because of his vital contribution to the 17-day rescue effort, which relied on his intricate knowledge of the Tham Luang caving system. Mr Unsworth was instrumental in the dangerous final three-day mission, in which retired Thai Navy Seal Sgt. Major Saman Gunan, 38, died as he tried to save the children trapped below ground by rapidly rising floodwaters after football practice. Mr Acton, 72, said: “I think the comments were the wrong thing to say. Unless you have evidence of something like that you should just keep your mouth shut. Vernon knew that cave inside out, and that a submarine would not work with the bends. He was just telling the truth and Musk got the hump and called him names. I thought that Vernon would have won the case because it is an insult. In the UK he probably stood a better chance of winning. I think the comments were damaging to his reputation and he had all the right to sue him. “It was Vernon's knowledge of the cave that meant that the divers were able to rescue the children. Without this, the rescue would not have happened. He is definitely a hero in my eyes, along with the rest of the divers. Elon Musk was only in it for the publicity and the ego.”   Following the verdict, which took under an hour to decide, Mr Musk, 48, told reporters in the hallways of the federal courtroom in California that his “faith in humanity” was “restored”. Alex Spiro, his lawyer, successfully argued that no reasonable person ever believed that his client had actually accused Mr Unsworth, 64, of “a sexual act with a child”, adding that the contentious tweet had been a “jape”. Mr Musk said that in South Africa, where he grew up, “pedo” is commonly used to refer to a “creepy old man”.

In emotional testimony this week, he told the court that he felt “humiliated, ashamed, dirtied” by the tweets sent about him. He said he would respect the verdict and will “take it on the chin”. Speaking after the verdict, Mr Unsworth said: “I respect the jury's decision. I would just like to say my legal team have been absolutely awesome. I came here for a verdict, unfortunately it has not gone the way I expected but I respect the jury's decision and thank them for that.” Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Elon Musk was only in it for the publicity and the ego.”   Following the verdict, which took under an hour to decide, Mr Musk, 48, told reporters in the hallways of the federal courtroom in California that his “faith in humanity” was “restored”. Alex Spiro, his lawyer, successfully argued that no reasonable person ever believed that his client had actually accused Mr Unsworth, 64, of “a sexual act with a child”, adding that the contentious tweet had been a “jape”. Mr Musk said that in South Africa, where he grew up, “pedo” is commonly used to refer to a “creepy old man”.

In emotional testimony this week, he told the court that he felt “humiliated, ashamed, dirtied” by the tweets sent about him. He said he would respect the verdict and will “take it on the chin”. Speaking after the verdict, Mr Unsworth said: “I respect the jury's decision. I would just like to say my legal team have been absolutely awesome. I came here for a verdict, unfortunately it has not gone the way I expected but I respect the jury's decision and thank them for that.” Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

BABIŠ V PLNÉ PALBĚ

Petr Novák 13.12.2019, 19:00

Před 17. listopadem jsem psal, že dle toho, kdy se nejvyšší státní zástupce Pavel Zeman rozhodne zveřejnit svou zprávu o případném pokračování trestního stíhání na Babiše, se prokáže za koho a jak kope. Dle datumu kdy tak učiní, NIKOLIV dle toho JAK rozhodne! O to totiž vůbec nejde. Pokud by tak učinil těsně před 17.

Rusko bez důkazů vyřazeno z vrcholového sportu

Petr Novák 11.12.2019, 20:37

Ve vrcholovém sportu výkonnostního a nikoliv technického typu „sypou“ dnes všichni, protože jinak se na ten vrchol nemají při dnešní konkurenci šanci dostat. Dnes zneužívají anabolické steroidy zcela běžně již dorostenci. Sportovec po nich lépe regeneruje, vydrží vyšší fyzickou zátěž, rychleji se mu léčí zranění a díky tomu všemu může mnohem brutálněji trénovat a tím

Česká politická scéna jako na dlani

Triumf Borise Johnsona: „Mohli se podělat!“ Zahradil a Mach v tom vymáchali média. Klaus ml. odeslal do Británie dopis

14.12.2019, 13:33

Na velký úspěch britských konzervativců premiéra Borise Johnsona ve čtvrtečních parlamentních volbách, kteří ovládli absolutní většinu v 650členné Dolní sněmovně, u nás zareagovali hned tři velcí příznivci českého konzervatismu. Reakce plné chvály nad výsledky britských voleb tak přišly od bývalého europoslance a zakladatele Svobodných Petra Macha či od europoslance za ODS Jana Zahradila. Oba pochválili zejména reálnou možnost, že již nyní bude konečně dotažen odchod Velké Británie z Evropské unie. Nešetřili ani média. Poslanec Václav Klaus mladší pak za své hnutí Trikolóra britskému ministerskému předsedovi Borisi Johnsonovi, jehož Konzervativní strana po svém volebním úspěchu bude v britském parlamentu disponovat 365 křesly, blahopřál i dopisem.

Novotný je mrzák. Ale to mají všude. Žirinovskij, Juncker... Jaroslav Foldyna o skutečném významu pře o vlasovce

14.12.2019, 12:46

ROZHOVOR Duševní mrzák? Tak vidí Pavla Novotného (ODS) Jaroslav Foldyna (ČSSD). „Bohužel jeho duševní mrzáctví dnes do jisté míry utváří pohled Rusů na celou Českou republiku,“ povzdechl si poslanec. A dodal, že vystoupení Vladimíra Žirinovského, který v ruské televizi pro změnu velmi neuctivě mluvil o Češích, je vlastně druhou stranou téže mince. „Ti dva pánové jsou si podobnější, než by se na první pohled mohlo zdát,“ soudí Foldyna a dodává, že jde o nedůležité kašpary.

Islám je nenávistná doktrína k ovládnutí světa. Hrozí vyhlazení Evropanů, řekl poslanec od Babiše a představil zásadní projekt „národní fronty“, který chystá proti imigraci

22.08.2017, 16:27

ROZHOVOR „Je to další otřesný důkaz selhání politiky multikulturalismu a celého toho šílenství s přijímáním migrantů, za kterým stojí paní Merkelová a další politici západní Evropy,“ říká o teroristickém útoku v Barceloně poslanec ANO Zdeněk Soukup. Varuje před ustupováním tlaku ze strany Evropské komise a před korektní politikou, která se podle něho bojí přiznat, že nejsme ve válce s radikálním islámem (islamismem), ale s islámem jako takovým.

Chválil mě Halík, volal Hřebejk! Pavel Novotný a dohra mejdanu s Ferim a schůzky s Kalouskem. A nové info o pomníku vlasovcům

14.12.2019, 11:56

Řeporyjský starosta Pavel Novotný (ODS) měl opět napilno a během 48 hodin svou návštěvou poctil hned několik zástupců jiných stran. S tím se pochlubil skrze sociální sítě a pochvaloval si pozitivní reakce na plánovanou stavbu pomníku vlasovcům. Hezké reakce prý starostovi přicházejí například od kněze Tomáše Halíka či od režiséra Jana Hřebejka. Pak Novotný prozradil porobnosti o své možné další spolupráci a přiložil též fotografie z divokého večírku s pirátskými poslanci či s poslancem Dominikem Ferim (TOP 09). Nevynechal ani návštěvu předsedy poslaneckého klubu TOP 09 Miroslava Kalouska v Řeporyjích.

Havel už je pryč! Elita? Někteří z nich to řeknou nahlas. Volební právo jen pro někoho? Stonjeková u Xavera šila do „kavárny“

14.12.2019, 10:50

„Slýcháme z médií, že je tady nějaká ‚lepší část společnosti‘, která ví, jak se chovat, jak volit – a potom jsou tady ostatní, kteří tedy volí špatně a špatně se chovají,“ řekla nedávno komentátorka Karolina Stonjeková na XTV u moderátora Luboše Xavera Veselého. Neslušní a špatní lidé však jsou „na obou stranách“. „Teď, po třiceti letech, jsme se dostali do bodu, kdy už se někteří intelektuálové nebo známé osobnosti nestydí říct, že by demokracie či volební práva měla být selektivní, a ne pro všechny,“ ukázala na „pachatele dobra“. Došlo i na ředitele spolku Evropské hodnoty Jakuba Jandu či na nespokojnost některých herců, kteří by rádi viděli někoho, kdo by razil názory zesnulého prezidenta Václava Havla.

Americký úřad FDA prohlásil: „Ať jedí bavlník“

William Engdahl 11.12.2019, 00:20

Vládní regulátoři v USA schválili geneticky modifikovanou odrůdu bavlníku jako „potenciální řešení pro hlad lidí“. Radikální řešení spočívá v tom, že konzumace GM semen bavlníku, vyvinutých na Texaské univerzitě A&M, avšak bez nezávislých dlouhodobých testů, bude kromě zvířat povolena i lidem. To vyvolává nové, vážné obavy ohledně bezpečnosti našeho potravinového řetězce. V důsledku toho může být světový potravinový řetězec brzy kontaminován geneticky modifikovanými semeny bavlníku, přičemž úřady jednoduše ignorují veškerá rizika.

Požáry v Amazonii způsobují rychlejší tání ledovců v Andách

Matthew Harris 10.12.2019, 00:10

Pokud jste v několika posledních měsících zapnuli televizi nebo si přečetli zprávy, pravděpodobně jste slyšeli o rozsáhlých požárech, které během letošního roku napáchaly velké škody v amazonském pralese. Požáry se v deštném pralese vyskytují každý rok, ale v posledních 11 měsících došlo k nárůstu počtu požárů o více než 70% ve srovnání s rokem 2018, což svědčí o výrazném urychlení odstraňování vegetace ze strany místních těžařských a zemědělských společností.
