Man jumps out of moving car is run over by tire

first_imgA man jumped out of a moving car and was run over Thursday afternoon on Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard in east Vancouver.At about 1:15 p.m., a black Subaru Crosstrek was traveling westbound, just before Southeast 136th Street, when a disturbance between the car’s two occupants prompted the passenger to open the door and exit the car while it was still moving, Vancouver police Sgt. Tim Huberty said.The car’s back passenger-side tire ran the man over, Huberty said. He was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center; his condition is unknown, but medical personnel treated him as a trauma patient, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.Two lanes of traffic were shut down for roughly 30 minutes as police investigated. Just after 2 p.m., the Subaru was driven from the scene with no noticeable damage.last_img read more

Man who fatally injured a toddler sentenced to life term

first_img EL CAJON (KUSI) – A Navy corpsman who inflicted fatal injuries on his girlfriend’s toddler son at their home in Alpine was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years to life in state prison.Brett Brown, 32, was convicted in September of murder and assault on a child causing death.Deputy District Attorney Chantal de Mauregne told jurors that Brown lied to his girlfriend, Renee Fournier, and first responders as to how 20-month- old Lucas Orlando was hurt.About 1:45 p.m. on Jan. 11, 2016, deputies responding to an emergency at Fournier’s apartment on Arnold Way found her son gravely injured, said sheriff’s Lt. Kenneth Nelson.Brown told deputies that Lucas had been hurt in a fall. Fournier was at work at the time, Nelson said.Brown had been watching Lucas that day along with Fournier’s other child and two of his own from a prior relationship, the lieutenant said.Paramedics took Lucas to Rady Children’s Hospital, where he died two days later.Detectives investigating the death determined that the trauma the boy suffered was too severe to have occurred the way Brown described it, according to Nelson.Brown — who was on leave from the Navy at the time — was arrested on Jan. 14, 2016.The child suffered severe eye, brain and neck hemorrhages, skull fractures and a broken leg, according to de Mauregne.Doctors testified that the child’s injuries had to have been caused by violent shaking and by deliberately striking the child’s head against a hard surface.Brown testified that he was carrying the boy and a plate of food when he slipped and fell on top of the toddler.Fournier, 31, pleaded guilty to felony child endangerment and agreed to testify against Brown. A judge in October reduced that conviction to a misdemeanor and she was sentenced to probation and ordered to complete a yearlong child abuse class.

Legacy of Bar Break Violence Haunting Downtown Business Development

first_imgAlcohol and late night clubs are often blamed for the frequency of bar break violence in downtown Anchorage. The last few months have seen shootings, fights, and even a massive unsanctioned street dance party that was cleared by police officers in riot gear last November.Download AudioThe Anchorage Assembly is casting an unusual amount of scrutiny on a pending liquor license transfer that’s raising questions about how businesses that sell liquor should develop downtown.The LED Lounge hasn’t officially opened, and on a recent Thursday afternoon there was construction debris and a few workmen installing swanky decor.“I think we have one of the largest–if not the largest kitchen in the state of Alaska,” said Robert Alexander, owner and operator of the business. He shows off a huge menu covered in small print for the Italian, Chinese, and Southern cuisine he plans to serve out of the half-finished industrial kitchen in the back of the building, which he rents from the owner.The menu is for the restaurant side of the business, Tri-Grill, but the other half of the space is for the LED Lounge, consisting so far of a bar, a small dance floor, and lots of colorful glowing lights built into the tables and walls. That is the side that’s led to a series of procedural snags in the Anchorage Assembly.Plans have been on hold since Assembly member Patrick Flynn delayed the transfer to give the public an opportunity to testify, which opened the door for possible protest from the Minicipality.Alexander’s building at the corner of 6th Avenue and I St. used to house Platinum Jaxx, a nightclub with a reputation as a bad operator in the neighborhood. It closed last summer. Now a group of property and business owners in the area think the LED Lounge will bring the same problems.At the heart of the matter is what kind of business Alexander plans on bringing in.“We will turn up the music on the weekends because more people come out on the weekends,” explains Alexander. “Does that make us a nightclub? No.”In weighing whether or not to block the transfer, the Assembly is picking apart Alexander’s 20-year business career in Anchorage. Recently, the Public Safety Committee gathered to hear more information on the issue, and assembly members asked Alexander questions about his plans for late-night security. But they also brought up a civil court case finding that Alexander had let his worker’s compensation insurance lapse repeatedly over a period of two years.That ruling is under appeal, but in the meantime Alexander’s full businesses record is fair game for assessing the permit transfer.“He was assessed a fine of over a million dollars for those violations,” said Assembly member Bill Evans after the meeting. “There was a detailed report which shows a lot of dis-concern and a lot of failure to report, failure to cooperate with the board. So that’s been an issue that the Assembly is going to at least consider in deciding whether he should be granted the liquor license.”Booze is big business in Anchorage, and operators pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to obtain permits from one another.  The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board technically has authority over the transfers, but typically defers to decisions from local governing bodies. The thought being that those who live in work in a particular town or neighborhood know better what liquor may bring to the area.Assembly member Evans believes the long shadow cast by Platinum Jaxx over the area merits the detailed review of Alexander’s record.“This is a bit unusual, most of these transfers go through usually without this kind of scrutiny,” said Evans. “Part of the issue here is that a lot of the neighbors were really upset about it. They raised concerns. And I think it caused the Assembly to look at this a little more closely.”The chorus of property owners opposing the transfer is small, but vocal, and they insist you cannot protect home or business values while serving booze until bar break next door. Chris Schutte directs the Anchorage Downtown partnership, which took the unusual step of registering its objection to the transfer, a first for the organization.“Given  the neighborhood’s previous experience, confidence in an incoming operator is really important,” Schutte said by phone. “Without that confidence there, and without assurances there, perhaps tied to the license transfer, the neighborhood will not feel comfortable with this operator coming in.”Schutte proposes conditions be attached to the permit, like an earlier closing time and set ratio of food to alcohol sales.Alexander admits that while his business record is not spotless, that is not unusual when you grow over so long a career. And most of the faults brought up by the Assembly had to do with a period of rapid expansion. Since then, he has taken on a director of operations to manage finances. But he thinks the degree of scrutiny he is under is exceptional, and feels unfairly judged.“I haven’t done anything yet, you know? You gotta give me a chance,” he said, pausing. “I just hope this whole thing goes away quick so that it becomes old news.”The Assembly is scheduled to vote on the transfer at its first meeting in February.last_img read more

Fresh cyber attacks hit Russia other nations

first_imgTurnstiles are seen in the entrance to the subway in Kiev, Ukraine. Photo: ReutersCyber attacks using malware called “BadRabbit” hit Russia and other nations on Tuesday, affecting Russian Interfax news agency and causing flight delays at Ukraine’s Odessa airport.While no major outages were reported, the U.S. government issued a warning on the attack, which followed campaigns in May and June that used similar malware and resulted in what some economists estimated are billions of dollars in losses.The attacks are disturbing because attackers quickly infected critical infrastructure, including transportation operators, indicating it was a “well-coordinated” campaign, said Robert Lipovsky, a researcher with cyber firm ESET.More than half the victims were in Russia, followed by Ukraine, Bulgaria, Turkey and Japan, according to ESET.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a warning on the BadRabbit ransomware, a type of virus that locks up infected computers and asks victims to pay a ransom to restore access. It did not identify any U.S. victims but advised the public to refrain from paying ransoms and report any infections to the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the government’s Internet Crime Complaint Center.Ransomware infections have the potential to halt activity at targeted organizations. The May “WannaCry” ransomware shuttered hospitals, factories and other facilities around the globe for days.Interfax, one of Russia’s largest news agencies, said some of its services were hit by the attack but expected them to be back online by the end of Tuesday.An Odessa airport spokesman said a few flights were delayed because workers had to process passenger data manually. Kiev’s metro system reported a hack on its payment system but said trains were running normally.Ukraine’s cyber police chief told Reuters the country was “barely affected.”Russian cyber-security firm Kaspersky Lab said BadRabbit appeared to spread through a mechanism similar to June’s destructive NotPetya virus, which took down many Ukrainian government agencies and businesses. It then spread across corporate networks of multinationals with operations or suppliers in eastern Europe.Kaspersky said it was investigating to see whether BadRabbit was related to NotPetya.Ukrainian banking services, which have been hit by previous attacks, were unaffected, according to the nation’s central bank.last_img read more

Studentled Bullying Prevention Week to spread the message Loving is Louder

first_imgStudent leaders from 17 high schools across Baltimore County are taking action to strengthen the kinds of positive learning environments they believe all students deserve. They have announced plans for the first ever Bullying Prevention Week in Baltimore County Public Schools, to be held March 3-7.Initiated and coordinated by the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council, the week will feature special activities and videos each day, including a special episode of the new BCPS-TV show “Chat Café.”The student-led bullying prevention week coincides with the public release of an online Bullying, Harassment or Intimidation Reporting Form. Students, staff and parents will be able to complete and submit the form electronically. The new form is designed to facilitate the process of reporting incidents of bullying and increase the anonymity of reporting.Across the county on Monday, students and staff will be encouraged to sign bullying prevention pledges and to wear orange to represent unity. Elementary students will receive “Loving is Louder” stickers, while secondary students will be offered temporary tattoos.The color of the day for Tuesday will be green representing empathy, and students will be encouraged to eat lunch with different tablemates than usual and to build new friendships. Wednesday will be “Random Words of Kindness Day,” and the color of the day, to represent kindness, will be blue. Students and staff will be invited throughout the day to write positive words about each other on designated bulletin boards in their schools.The focus for Thursday will be cyber-bullying awareness, and the campaign will seek to combat negativity with 5,000 positive tweets. Students will be encouraged to tweet affirmative words, statements, and pictures about their school and other students using the hash tag #lovingislouder. The color for the day is red to symbolize respect.On Friday, schools are encouraged to celebrate the week through classroom discussions or assemblies and to develop schoolwide plans for continuing bullying prevention activities. Pictures from the week can be shared using #lovingislouder or sent to nallen3@bcps.org. Any schoolwide plans developed to address bullying prevention should be sent to spatterson2@bcps.org. The color of the day, purple, represents positivity.last_img read more

Uber wants to fly you to your destination in a drone

first_imgTap a button on you screen and a four-wheeled Uber will come and drive you to your destination. In a few years, however, they may take to the sky after you step inside.Uber’s chief product officer Jeff Holden sat down with Recode’s Kara Swisher at the Nantucket Conference this week. During their chat, he told her that the company is looking into VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft to provide lifts to Uber customers.Uber has made no secret about their desire to start using driverless cars. They’ve been pushing in that direction for quite some time and recently launched a pilot project — a fleet of autonomous Ford Fusions — in Pittsburgh.Uber is not the only company out there looking to the skies for ways to revolutionize transportation. China’s Ehang showed off an advanced prototype earlier this year (that’s it pictured at the top of this post), and it looks very similar to the type of vehicle that Holland was talking about on stage.The eHang 184 has a range of about 10 miles, which would be plenty to accomplish a goal Holden mentioned — getting from Oakland to San Francisco. Right now, a bus can get you there in 10 minutes or so, and the eHang should be able to match that while transporting you in solitary bliss.Other companies are working on similar drones. Airbus has been for quite some time, and you’d have to assume that competitors like Boeing and Bombardier are, too. The sooner they make drone taxis a reality, the sooner Uber can start offering to fly you to your destination while all the luddites on the ground are stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic.last_img read more

Study suggests humans are now producing more chemical waste than can be

first_img Citation: Study suggests humans are now producing more chemical waste than can be tested (2019, February 27) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-02-humans-chemical.html A team of experts convened by Professor Sir Charles Godfray of the Oxford Martin School has found evidence that suggests humans are dumping more chemical waste into the environment than can be tested for its impact. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the group describes their review of recent research surrounding the amounts and types of chemicals being dumped into ecosystems and what they found. © 2019 Science X Network Freshwater male fish exposed to chemicals in water becoming more feminine For many people, pollutants dumped into ecosystems evokes images of pipes pumping waste into rivers from large industrial complexes. But the actual picture is far more complex. Agricultural runoff is a major pollution problem, as are landfills leaking chemicals into water sources. There is also the growing problem of chemicals being washed down the drain in kitchen sinks and, perhaps worse, down bathroom shower drains and toilets. Humans produce thousands of chemicals and use them in wildly different ways—from chemicals to make our lawns grow to chemicals in birth control pills that show up in our urine. In this new effort, the researchers claim that the world now collectively dumps more chemicals into the natural environment than can be tested—and because of that, we really do not know what damage it may be causing.In their review, the researchers focused mainly on endocrine disrupting chemicals, which include PCBs from plastics and drugs such as antidepressants and birth control pills. Such chemicals are known to disrupt reproduction in marine animals. As one example, they note that a pod of killer whales living off the coast of Scotland has not produced a calf in at least 25 years—one female washed ashore was tested, and researchers found levels of PCBs 100 times higher than the dose considered toxic.What most concerns the researchers is the rate at which new chemicals are being introduced and used and which eventually wind up in natural ecosystems, which is so high that there is no way to test their impact. We may be flushing chemicals into the ocean right now that could potentially kill off most if not all marine animals, and not even know it. They conclude by suggesting that more work is required to investigate the problem and to look for ways to address it. Explore furthercenter_img More information: H. Charles J. Godfray et al.

Firefox new default theme theme API makes an appearance

first_imgFirefox: new default theme, theme API makes an appearance by Martin Brinkmann on January 16, 2017 in Firefox – Last Update: May 23, 2018 – 27 comments2017 will be quite the interesting year for the Firefox web browser. Mozilla plans to make the switch to WebExtensions in that year, launch a new themes API that is based on that, and will introduce a new default Firefox theme on top of all that.The first changes have been pushed to the Nightly version of the Firefox web browser already. The most visible change is the addition of two new themes that Firefox will ship with from that version on.What this means is that Firefox users can choose one of the three themes to run Firefox with, all without having to head over to the themes repository to download themes first.Firefox: new default compact themesUsers of Firefox’s Developer Edition may know the themes already: Compact Dark and Compact Light are more or less copies of the Developer Themes.The core difference is that you may enable the themes using the Add-on Manager, and don’t have to open the Developer Tools to switch between themes. Their main advantage over the default theme is that they save you a couple of extra pixels vertically when enabled. The new themes are already available for selection in Firefox Nightly. They will be made available in other Firefox versions in the coming months.To enable them, load about:addons in the browser’s address bar, and switch to appearance in the menu. There you find the two new themes listed next to the default theme, and any other theme you may have installed in Firefox manually.Simply click on the enable link to activate the selected theme. A restart is not required.Another option that you have to enable the themes is to open the browser’s customize mode. Click on Menu > Customize.Select Themes to display the list of themes. Firefox displayed the default theme there, and five recommended themes. The new themes listing there displays the two compact themes for selection, and only two recommended themes instead of five.Theme WebExtensions API has landedMozilla is working on WebExtensions support currently. Some APIs are already available, and many are still being worked on.One API that was a no-show up until now was the new theme API that will provide theme developers with capabilities to create themes for the Firefox web browser.This is important, as Mozilla wants to turn off all other add-on and theme related creation options, and focus solely on WebExtensions starting in late 2017.All themes and add-ons for Firefox that are not created using WebExtensions won’t be compatible with Firefox anymore at that point. While it is possible that Mozilla will extend the deadline to give developers more time to make the switch, nothing has been said in this regard up to now. Specifics are not known yet and it remains to be seen how this will end up.The new themes API will sit somewhere between today’s lightweight themes and full themes. It will be more powerful than lightweight themes, but not as powerful as full themes.The new theme WebExtensions API has landed in Firefox Nightly. It is locked behind a configuration switch right now though:Type about:config in the Firefox address bar.Confirm that you will be careful if the warning prompt appears.Search for extensions.webextensions.themes.enabled.Double-click the preference.This sets the preference to true, and enables support for the WebExtensions themes API in Firefox. You can follow development of the themes API — it is far from complete — here.New Firefox Default ThemeMozilla plans to refresh the current default theme of the Firefox web browser in 2017. The project is called photon, and it is part of Quantum, but that is the extent of what we know about the plans right now.It could be a simple visual refresh, or something of epic proportions like Australis.Closing WordsMuch of what is theme-related and coming in 2017 is unknown territory at this point in time. We don’t know anything about the default theme refresh, nor how powerful the themes API will be once version 1.0 is made available. (thanks Sören Hentzschel)Now You: What are your expectations for the new default theme, and themes API?SummaryArticle NameFirefox: new default theme, theme API makes an appearanceDescriptionMozilla plans to launch a new theming API that is based on WebExtensions, and will introduce a new default Firefox theme in the year 2017.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

US Secretary of State Kerry urges Central America cooperation on child migrants

first_imgRelated posts:US nation-building efforts should be in Central America, not Iraq and Afghanistan Fix the immigration crisis at its root Central American foreign ministers meet in Washington to lobby Obama on immigration crisis Obama: US will make immigration ‘more fair and just’ PANAMA CITY – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated Tuesday Washington’s calls for Central American cooperation in addressing the plight of tens of thousands of illegal child migrants making their way to the United States.The rapid surge in unaccompanied children making the dangerous journey, most of them from Central America, has prompted U.S. officials to talk of a “humanitarian crisis” and to issue reminders the vast majority of the minors will be deported.Kerry met with Salvadoran President Salvador Sánchez Cerén and Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina, plus Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero in Panama City.“The lives of children cannot be put at risk in this way and we all have a responsibility as leaders to do our part in order to solve this problem, and we will,” Kerry said.“We obviously understand people who want to be able to do better, to look for a better life. But at the same time, there are rules of law,” he added.And he cautioned that “there is false information that is being spread about benefits that might be available to these young people who are looking for that better life.”Kerry declined to say whether the United States would heed calls from Central America for U.S. authorities to focus on reunifying families whenever possible.Central American authorities yesterday said they would ask Kerry to allow children immigrants to stay if their parents were already in the country.Since October, 52,000 unaccompanied children aged under 17 have been detained crossing the border, twice the number from the same period a year ago.U.S. President Barack Obama Monday lodged a request with Congress for $2 billion to cope with the tide of undocumented child immigrants.The sudden flow has injected new venom into the debate between Obama and House Republicans over his calls for a sweeping reform of the U.S. immigration system.“We understand this problem from all its dimensions and are willing to work together with the U.S. government to look for a quick and appropriate solution aimed at the problem not growing,” Guatemala’s Pérez Molina said.El Salvador’s Sánchez Cerén, meanwhile, said that the problem stems from “people linked to crime” who “deceive parents that upon arrival in the United States, reunification will be a reality.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Vienna records 11 rise in overnights from India

first_imgAustria’s capital city, Vienna known for its imperial history, magnificent palaces and gardens recorded over 58,000 Indians arrivals in 2017 who spent nearly 1,28,000 bednights in the Austrian capital, an 11% increase over 2016.For the Indian travellers, the biggest attractions for children includes the Butterfly House; Prater- an amusement park; House of Music; Vienna Zoo; and art programs for children in various Viennese museums. There are countless restaurants offering an array of North and South Indian dishes for Indians.“Vienna is where you can step back into history one moment, and revel in nature the next,” said Isabella Rauter, Public Relations Manager, Vienna Tourist Board.Following extensive renovations, the Vienna World Museum (Weltmuseum Wien) now shows valuable treasures from around the world, including the collection of seafarer James Cook and the world-famous feather headdress of a Mexican priest. With its global collection, the museum deals with the cultural diversity of humanity and documents Austria’s rich historic relations with the world.The current year is dedicated to Art and Modernism. Vienna will celebrate Modernism and pay tribute to four of the greatest Viennese artists – painters Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, architect Otto Wagner and the universal artist Koloman Moser. All four left an indelible mark on Vienna around 1900 and as if by a strange quirk of fate died in the same year – 1918.To mark the centenary of their death, their lives and work will be remembered at numerous exhibitions and events throughout the year. Selected tours have been designed devoted to the 2018 theme of Viennese Modernism and Art Nouveau.last_img read more

Ten per cent increase in complaints to child commissioner

first_imgBy Evie AndreouChildren’s Rights Commissioner Leda Koursoumba on Thursday said that her office has seen a more than 10 per cent increase last year in complaints concerning education, family matters, state allowances and violence.She was presenting her 2017 annual report to President, Nicos Anastasiades. According to Koursoumba, her office received 531 new complaints last year, a 10.5 per cent increase since 2016.The majority of these complaints concerned education related issues, followed by family matters, state allowances and violence.  Koursoumba said that the increasing complaints were a proof of society’s trust in the institution.The report Koursoumba said, records the work of her office but also “a vision for the transformation of society into a child-centred one.”In her note on the occasion of the delivery of the annual report, Koursoumba noted the significant changes that have been made in 2017 in the field of education, in the context of establishing a more child-centered perspective. These include, amongst others, the regulations governing the operation of primary schools, school boards, the law regulating the establishment and operation of private schools and regulations for private institutes.On what still needs to be done, the commissioner said that schools do not have institutionalised, clear and child-friendly complaint procedures when children feel that their rights are being violated.With regard to the rights of children with disabilities, Koursoumba said, among other things, that it was necessary to make changes in the administrative practice applied by the special education district committees, so as to provide parents with reports detailing and substantiating the findings of their child’s assessments.She also said that it is the responsibility of the state to create standards and conditions so that pupils with disabilities have access to education on an equal footing with any other child. She also suggested that the education ministry sets up a committee of independent experts to evaluate the existing education system for children with disabilities.In an intervention to the education minister, Koursoumba said she had also asked for the establishment of employment terms for school escorts for children in need of support. At the moment, the minimum requirement is a high-school diploma. Parents have been complaining that most escorts are not even qualified to do the job properly.The commissioner also said that authorities, “either by their actions or inaction”, continue to contribute to the further victimisation of children of troubled families and thus, constantly violating their rights.She welcomed the fact that the ministry of justice is promoting the institutionalisation of mediation as a tool for resolving disputes concerning family matters, but expressed her regret that the relevant bill, she had drafted herself, was still pending before the House legal affairs committee.Anastasiades said that the government is taking measures to be more responsive to the needs that arise and that he fully supports the commissioner’s office.Suggestions were welcome, he said, “to improve practices that, to-date, did not match what the state ought to deliver.” You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoEditorChoice.comIf You Have Any Of These 20 Toys Around, You Just Became RichEditorChoice.comUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
