The City of Pasadena c0mmissioned the outside review of the shooting by the Office of Independent Review Group. The officers and their union filed suit trying to stop any release of its McDade shooting report; in November, Judge James C. Chalfant ordered release of a 20% redacted copy of the Report. The officers appealed the ruling.In mid-March, the Officers’ attorneys contradictorily quoted 1 ½ pages of verbatim excerpts from the very report that they were trying to suppress in a publicly-filed brief that was served on their opponents; nine days later, they got a sealing-clawback order from the Court which brought outraged objections from the national media and free-press activists. Last Friday, the Court vacated that order.On Monday, civil rights attorney Skip Hickambottom today filed a motion to dismiss the entire appeal for his clients – Kendrec McDade’s mother Anya Slaughter, the Pasadena NAACP, ACT, the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance and ACLU activist Kris Ockershauser.Hickambottom’s brief argues that the disclosure a significant part of the Report waived any arguable privilege of the officers and mooted their appeal because now 100 per cent of the Report should be released. The officers’ attorneys assert their disclosure was “inadvertent.”  Hickambottom’s motion disputes their claim, calling it “preposterous.” Make a comment Community News Top of the News last_img read more

Limerick families stand up for mental health inside City Hall

first_imgNewsHealthPoliticsLimerick families stand up for mental health inside City HallBy Alan Jacques – September 18, 2019 1552 WhatsApp Linkedin Facebook Print Lauren Hehir, Carew Park; Willie O’Neill, Newport and Mary Sheehan, O’Malley Park, holding photographs of family and friends who died by suicide in recent months at the ‘Stand UP for Mental Health’ protest.Photo: Cian ReinhardtEMOTIONS ran high in City Hall on Monday as grief-stricken family members and friends of young Limerick people lost to suicide took a stand for mental health.Protesters entered the council chamber during this week’s Metropolitan District meeting and called for the local authority to take responsibility for the city’s worsening mental health crisis.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Banners calling for action and photographs of loved ones who died by suicide were held aloft as councillors were reminded of their duty of care to the people of Limerick.‘The Stand Up for Mental Health – Limerick’ campaign saw protesters demand the implementation of a proven mental health awareness programme into all Limerick City schools and the use of a council-owned vacant site as a permanent base for suicide patrols along the River Shannon.Sinn Féin councillor John Costelloe called on the Council to convene a citywide multi-agency task force to respond to the serious concerns regarding mental health and suicide in Limerick. The City North representative’s motion was greeted by a round of applause by protesters in the public gallery.“At least one person a day died by suicide in Ireland. It is a shamefully indictment on Irish society that this scandal continues unabated. My motion on mental health is an attempt to highlight this issue and to support those locally who are trying to move the powers that be to take action,” Cllr Costelloe declared.“There are some wonderful organisations who dedicate themselves to try make a difference. For instance more than 5,300 people have had face-to-face appointments with Pieta’s suicide-prevention service this year and that number is expected to rise to over 8,000 by this years end. However, many people don’t know anything about it until they are directly affected, so when it happens in their family they are completely shocked and they are taken aback by it.“My motion is a plea for Limerick City Council to wake up, sit up and get involved in fighting this insidious scourge advancing through our local communities. I would urge the council to set up this multi-agency task force to offer a holistic approach to fighting this horrible tragedy, lobby central government for realistic funds and show bereaved families and those currently suffering that City Hall stand with them,” he added.The motion was seconded by Sinn Féin councillor Sharon Benson, who expressed her sympathy with all those bereaved by suicide.Offering his support, Green Party councillor Sean Hartigan described the motion as “the most important to ever come before the Council”.Labour Party councillor Conor Sheahan maintained that volunteers and charities were doing the work that the government should be doing in addressing mental health.“We have a duty of care and we need to offer support to families,” he added.Social Democrats’ Elisa O’Donovan commended Cllr Costelloe on his motion.However, the City West representative said she could not support it as she believed the Council “did not have the experience to deal with the most vulnerable in our society”.“You’d feel differently if you were faced with this in your own family,” one protester heckled.“She’s not even from Limerick,” another roared.Fianna Fáil councillor Kieran O’Hanlon insisted that whatever needs to be done to tackle the issue, councillors would do.“We are not experts but anything we can do, we must do,” he said.Fine Gael councillor Daniel Butler commended the protesters on their strength and bravery. He also agreed that early intervention and education were key in tackling mental health problems.A response read out from Limerick City and County Council stated: “‘Connecting for Life’ is a National Suicide Prevention Strategy, which is being implemented on a local/ regional basis. A Regional Suicide Prevention Steering Group has been established and is chaired by the HSE. This group includes representations from over 40 key service providers, sectors and communities.“Limerick City and County Council, along with An Garda Síochána, HSE, Public Health and a range of other agencies and groups such as Limerick Mental Health Association, sit on this steering group. They oversee the implementation of the objectives set out in the regional ‘Connecting for Life’ strategy and the national ‘Connecting for Life’ document.”center_img Advertisement Email Twitter Previous articleVicky considered refusing honorary UL doctorateNext articleSouthside Men’s Shed offered a new home Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

EFL Cup: ‘Sloppy’ Man City must learn despite reaching final

first_img Loading… GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL Matic Man City 0-1 Man United Via: @GTVWorld pic.twitter.com/IdT8fvDluh— – (@sports2103) January 29, 2020 United’s hopes of completing a miraculous comeback were extinguished when Matic was then sent-off 15 minutes from time and City held on to face Aston Villa at Wembley on March 1. “In 180 minutes we were better than United,” said Guardiola. “We created chances to score a lot of goals and didn’t convert. We need to learn to be more clinical.” City started like they did in racing into a 3-0 lead within 38 minutes of the first leg at Old Trafford as they swarmed all over the visitors, who had De Gea to thank for keeping them in the tie. “I can’t really comprehend how we lost this game,” said City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne. “I think we got sloppy. “For me Manchester United didn’t have one chance today.” Sergio Aguero was first to threaten with a diving header that the Spaniard parried to safety before using his legs to repel Riyad Mahrez’s effort. Bernardo Silva flashed a shot across goal before more De Gea acrobatics denied Aguero again at his near post.

The hosts did have the ball in the net before half-time when Raheem Sterling finished off a flowing team move, but the England international was denied his first ever goal against United by an offside flag. Sterling contrived to miss another glorious chance to kill the tie off just before the hour mark as he rounded De Gea but blasted over with just defenders on the line to beat. Guardiola then could not believe his eyes when David Silva tried to tee up Ilkay Gundogan rather than shoot with just De Gea to beat after Harry Maguire was caught in possession. The tension among the home support was eased when Matic finally paid for persistent fouling when he chopped down Ilkay Gundogan to cut short a City counter-attack. “It’s hard to go here and score a goal with 11, nevermind 10,” said United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “It’s never a sending off for me – it’s a joke.” Aguero finally beat De Gea with a deft finish only to also be flagged offside in the closing stages as United salvaged some pride, if not their chances of a first trophy since 2017.

Louis van Gaal’s season of ups and downs at Manchester United

first_img THE PERFECT START United opened their Barclays Premier League campaign with a 1-0 victory against Tottenham at Old Trafford. While it was not a convincing performance from Van Gaal’s side, five new faces were blooded – including Memphis Depay and Bastian Schweinsteiger – to provide United fans with hope of a championship charge. EUROPEAN GETAWAY Van Gaal’s side then booked their Champions League ticket with a 7-1 aggregate victory over FC Bruges. Captain Wayne Rooney ended his goal drought with a hat-trick in his side’s 4-0 win in Belgium to fire United back in to Europe’s elite club competition following a one-season absence. MARTIAL ART United spent a reported £36million – with potentially millions more to follow in add-ons – to make 19-year-old Anthony Martial British football’s most expensive teenager. The highly-rated Frencman was Van Gaal’s sixth major signing of the summer after he joined Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Matteo Darmian and Sergio Romero at Old Trafford. DE GEA U-TURN Goalkeeper David De Gea put pen to paper on a new four-year deal at Old Trafford in September to end speculation surrounding his future. The Spaniard had looked set to join Real Madrid, but his £29milllion move to his homeland sensationally collapsed on deadline day before he committed his future to United. Louis van Gaal is coming under increasing pressure at Manchester United following his side’s 1-0 defeat against Southampton on Saturday. Here, Press Association Sport tracks the ups and downs of a turbulent campaign for the Dutchman. UPS LIVERPOOL DOUBLE Wayne Rooney scored the only goal of the game as United completed a league double over fierce rivals Liverpool with victory in January. Following their 3-1 victory at Old Trafford back in September, Rooney netted with 12 minutes remaining in Liverpool to secure a much-needed victory for Van Gaal’s side. But with a defeat at home to Southampton to follow it proved to be something of a false dawn. DOWNS MISFIRING UNITED FLOP AT GUNNERS Arsenal scored three goals inside the opening 20 minutes to sweep Manchester United aside at the Emirates Stadium on October 4. Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil scored twice in 74 seconds before Sanchez added a third. The defeat ended a run of four consecutive victories for Van Gaal’s side. CAPITAL ONE KO Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Ashley Young all missed penalties as United were knocked out of the League Cup by Championship side Middlesbrough at Old Trafford on October 23. EUROPEAN EXIT United’s return to the Champions League failed to progress beyond the group stages after they were beaten 3-2 by Wolfsburg in their final group game. United looked to have sealed qualification with eight minutes left when Maroune Fellaini’s header was deflected into his own net by Joshua Guilavogui, but Wolfsburg scored two minutes later to seal United’s fate. CHERRIES BOMB Just days after their Champions League exit, United slumped to a surprise 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth on December 12. Junior Stanislas scored directly from a second-minute corner and, although Marouane Fellaini levelled, Joshua King wrapped up the win in the second half. NORWICH DEFEAT One week after their defeat against Bournemouth, United then lost 2-1 at home to another of the newly-promoted sides. This time it was Norwich who would upset Van Gaal as the Canaries claimed their first victory at Old Trafford since 1989. United left the field to boos after failing to win for a sixth game in succession VAN GAAL STORMS OUT Two days before Christmas Van Gaal walked out of a press conference after becoming annoyed about speculation regarding his future. Rumours had suggested the Dutchman was about to be sacked and replaced by Jose Mourinho. But after just five minutes at his weekly press conference, Van Gaal refused to take any more questions and walked out. United then lost at Stoke on Boxing Day. VAN GAAL IN “FAT” JIBE Three weeks after walking out of his press conference, Van Gaal caused further controversy when he appeared to call a journalist “fat”. As he left his preview press conference ahead of United’s match at Newcastle, the Dutchman, who had been defending Wayne Rooney’s form, turned to a reporter and said: “You too. Fat man. There.” ON THE BRINK United supporters once again vented their anger towards Van Gaal after watching their team put on yet another dull, uninspiring performance in a 1-0 defeat against Southampton. There was no doubting who the home supporters blamed for this latest insipid display. Van Gaal was jeered at as he walked down the tunnel. The message was clear – he is no longer wanted by some of them – but will they get their wish? Press Associationlast_img read more

Digital tech used for trafficking

first_imgTexting, calling and Facebooking are the functions most cell phone users associate with their phones, but a new report affirmed that phones often serve more sinister purposes, such as human trafficking.The USC Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy released Tuesday a report exploring the burgeoning use of mobile and online technology in human trafficking. Titled “The Rise of Mobile and the Diffusion of Technology-Facilitated Trafficking,” the piece discusses mobile technology’s impact on the human trafficking of children and potential solutions to combat its effect.After compiling data over a period of two years, Mark Latonero, the project’s research director, and his team ultimately concluded that mobile devices and online classifieds are being used at growing rates to facilitate human trafficking, specifically in cases involving juvenile victims.“To start, we analyzed and looked at lots of data analysis and technology sources known to be sites where traffickers operated in the past,” Latonero said.The report highlights the ways in which traffickers can exploit their victims via technology embedded within mobile phones. Latonero and his colleagues cited GPS and Internet features in most modern phones as two of the most useful tools for traffickers.“Mobile phones make coordination easier,” Latonero said. “The phones allow traffickers the ability to reach a wider group of people at greater distances, and enable traffickers to control their victims in unique ways; there exist programs within phones to locate where people and where phones are. Thus, traffickers can discover where their potential victims are.”The Annenberg research team stressed that the same technology exploited by the traffickers, however, can be used by anti-trafficking organizations to stop the trafficking of children.“Law enforcement officials are using online and mobile technology for these crimes against children to turn the tables on traffickers,” Latonero said. “We hope with our report that mobile companies will take note and will become more aware, and that the private sector will also help to develop technology to combat crimes against human trafficking.”In exploring modern solutions to work against traffickers, the report analyzes two case studies in which text-based alert systems have been implemented to warn mobile phone customers about potential trafficking threats.“We examined a case study in Haiti, where a company by the name of digicel is working with an anti-trafficking NGO in order to develop these alerts,” Latonero said. “This demonstrates a mobile company working hand in hand with the anti-trafficking community.”According to Latonero, Annenberg’s report was put into motion upon request of the U.S. State Department, which sought to gather more information about technology use in human trafficking.“Annenberg has a long history of research and technology used proactively for positive social change,” Latonero said. “Our department worked with engineers at the Viterbi School to provide the computer science and engineering behind developing technology to help out the anti-trafficking community. The report draws from the strength of the two schools.”The report also comes on the heels of California’s newly approved Proposition 35, which, among other provisions, requires all convicted sex traffickers to register as sex offenders and requires all registered sex offenders to disclose their internet accounts.“Prop. 35 has really been productive in calling attention to human trafficking issues,” Latonero said.Even President Barack Obama acknowledged the growing problem of human trafficking in a September speech where he called the practice a “debasement of our common humanity that tears at the social fabric of our communities, endangers public health, distorts markets, and fuels violence and organized crime.”Moving forward, Latonero and his team hope that their findings will assist lawmakers in crafting policy specifically to combat modern human trafficking.“Policymakers in general are eager to find real, evidence-based research that will help inform their policies in the future,” Latonero said. “There’s no doubt that policymakers of high standing can use research like this to inform national policy.”last_img read more

Norden Aims to Return to Profit in 2017

first_imgzoom As 2016 was a particularly difficult year for the shipping industry, Danish shipping company Dampskibsselskabet Norden A/S said that its adjusted results for the year amounted to a loss of USD 35 million. Norden added that the results are in line with the latest expectations, as the company generated earnings in dry cargo and tankers which were 19% and 7% above the market, respectively.From the historical low in February, the dry cargo market gradually improved, while the markets within Norden’s product tankers business started the year with good rates that dropped considerably as more product tankers were delivered, and demand growth declined.“In general, the markets developed as expected in 2016, and Norden positioned itself towards them also on the long term through a number of initiatives,” Jan Rindbo, CEO of Norden, said.The company has focused and optimised the fleet, increased operator activities in dry cargo and reduced annual fleet operating costs by USD 15 million. This has not prevented a loss in 2016, “but it plays a part in creating the foundation for the fact that the midpoint of our expectations for 2017 indicates a profit.”“In 2017, in dry cargo we will focus on taking advantage of expected improved markets and strengthening our operator activities, while in tankers we are focusing on positioning ourselves towards possible market improvements after 2017,” Rindbo said.Against that background, Norden expects its adjusted annual results for 2017 to be in the range of USD -20 million to USD 40 million.last_img read more
