Her 8-year-old daughter was walking alongside her. Two (2) Rottweiler dogs escaped from their backyard kennel, jumped over a fence and ran across the street where the mother and her children were walking. The dogs approached the family and immediately attacked the child in the stroller, biting him several times. The mother attempted to pull the stroller and her child away from the attacking dogs. At this point one of the dogs jumped up on her, knocking her to the ground and began to bite her, while the other dog continued to attack her child.Several neighbors saw what was happening and came outside in an effort to help the family. The dog’s owners also came outside and managed to pull the dogs off of the mother and her child, returning them to their backyard.The mother and child were both transported to the hospital where they were treated for serious, non-life threatening injuries. The mother received several puncture/bite wounds on her arm. The 2-year-old child received several bite wounds to his head, face and arm. The injury to the arm will require surgery. The 8-year-old child was not physically injured.Both of the dogs were declared dangerous at the scene, seized by La Mesa Animal Control and taken to the El Cajon Animal Shelter for quarantine.There is an on-going investigation into this incident being conducted by the La Mesa Police Department and City of La Mesa Animal Control.The La Mesa Police Department would like to thank those persons who saw what was happening and came to the rescue of this family.Jamir Grigsby is reportedly one of the neighbors who pulled the dogs off of the family.

Kassab asks city for tax break

first_imgThe developer who plans to build apartments on the site of downtown Vancouver’s Burgerville restaurant has asked the Vancouver City Council for the same state tax break that helped spur millions of dollars worth of development on the fringes of Esther Short Park. Elie Kassab has asked city leaders to limit property tax assessments to the land beneath his proposed 92-unit apartment complex and its ground-floor commercial spaces, while allowing him to forego taxes on the upper three stories of the buildings for the next 12 years. That would save him an estimated $93,000 annually, or about $1.1 million total, according to a city consultant’s analysis.Without the property tax break, it wouldn’t be possible to build his planned apartment complex near the Interstate 5-Mill Plain Boulevard entrance to downtown Vancouver, said Kassab, a local developer and president of Prestige Development. “It won’t pencil out without it,” Kassab said.He needs the backing of a majority of the seven-member city council to get the tax break he’s asking for.At least one city council member expressed concern about encouraging downtown rental units. City Councilwoman Jeanne Stewart said owner-occupied condominium units might be better than rentals, because condos bring more stability to downtown.But the market potential of apartments has changed since state legislators passed the multifamily tax abatement ordinance, said Councilman Pat Campbell.“There are younger people and people who have lost their homes that are looking for a place to live,” he said.Other downtown projects that took advantage of tax abatements include the Heritage Place, a $17 million condominium and retail development across from Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver. Tax abatements also helped build the apartment units in the $100 million Vancouvercenter on the east side of the park.last_img read more

Brewfest donations questioned

first_imgA Juneau organization that fights heroin abuse will take a quarter of the money raised during the city’s annual brew fest. Its participation raised the question: Is it appropriate for an anti-heroin group to take donations from a beer festival – especially considering Alaska’s high rates of alcoholism?LISTEN NOW There’s a stage, live music and a large room packed with people drinking from short glasses of beer. The organization Juneau – Stop Heroin, Start Talking is passing out koozies that say ‘Beer and Bacon are 100% better for you than heroin.’Finding people willing to talk about the koozies wasn’t too hard.One attendee stated, “I’ve never done heroin, but I’ve done a lot of beer!”Luckily there were some people who were able to give the question some thought. Adam Buechler (BEEK-lur) isn’t too concerned: “It’s weird, but a lot of programs will substitute one addiction with another and I think the majority of people will agree that beer is a better addiction than heroin.”Hailey Ward is on vacation from her job in Calgary, Canada. She’s a nurse in a homeless shelter and says addictions are her specialty. The koozies caught her off guard though,  “Heroin is not something I joke about and it’s something, I see as a very serious thing in my work environment, so mixing my vacation life, going to a beer festival and seeing them almost joking about heroin, yeah it caught me for a moment for sure.”But, she says it’s a beer festival and she’s not offended, “And I’m also here so I can’t be like ‘oh I’m very offended about this.’”Izzie Felstead, thinks the koozies had a good message, “I thought it was really cool, because I don’t use koozies very much but if I’m going to have a koozie at least it says something better than like, ‘drink beer.’”Felstead also likes the rubber wristbands making the rounds, “I have a wristband that says ‘Stop Heroin, Start Talking.’ I think that’s a better message because kids will wear them rather than having something they have to put on a beer.”Each year the Juneau Rotary partners with another organization to help throw the brew fest. The partner gets 25 percent of the money the festival raises. Rotary officials say historically, the event raises about $25,000.But, should Michele Morgan’s organization, Juneau — Stop Heroin, Start Talking, take that money?The CDC has reported Alaska has one the highest rates of binge drinking in the country. The state reported in 2010 Alaska had the highest rate of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.Morgan agrees that alcohol can be dangerous, but says the brew fest is a legal event and it gives her a chance to spread her message: “I did the bacon fest and we did the same thing, ‘bacon is 100 percent better for you than heroin.’ Anything is better for you than heroin. I mean, it can kill you with one mistake.”She says she will go to any event to spread awareness and try to save the next generation from the dangers of heroin, “I don’t eat bacon. I don’t eat farmed meats, but I did bacon stickers for the bacon fest. I did the beer ones for the beer fest. I don’t drink beer.”Morgan says she got one complaint about the brew fest. A woman whose son is an addict emailed her and said she was upset by the organization taking part.“We talked and I explained to her, ‘These are decisions. Not everyone is an alcoholic. These people here, alcohol is legal in the United States. I’m not the one who makes it legal.’”She told her, the opportunity to bring awareness to a new group of people and get some much needed money for their cause was huge. And she’s thankful for it.“We talked and emailed and she actually understood and apologized, and said I understand. This event is happening. If this is an adult event and these people are maintaining and doing well, why do we have to take that away from shining a light on how horrible heroin is?”Morgan says the money she gets from the Rotary will help fund her awareness campaign. It will also help in a new venture. She and a woman whose son died from heroin abuse are planning to take the message into Juneau’s schools.Morgan wants to talk about the state’s report that Southeast Alaska saw a near 500 percent increase in Hepatitis C cases in five years. The report links the increase to injection drug use.last_img read more

Rakesh Reddys sensational comment on Jagans YSRCP funding RGVs Lakshmis NTR

first_imgProducer Rakesh Reddy with Ram Gopal VarmaTwitterProducer Rakesh Reddy made a sensational comment on Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSRCP (Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party) funding RGV’s Lakshmi’s NTR. He said that no party will give money, but take it from others.Lakshmi’s NTR is a controversial biopic that will show Chandrababu Naidu as backstabber of his father-in-law NT Rama Rao. It is rumoured that director Ram Gopal Varma was doing this movie as revenge against Nandamuri Balakrishna after he was dumped from his film. But Rakesh Reddy slammed the reports.In an interview to Mirror TV, Rakesh Reddy opened up on all the rumours surrounding it. He said, “It is not meant to be avenge. If you look his interview, he has made it clear. He has done it for his respect for NT Rama Rao. His last days form a crucial part of his life. You can’t do a film keeping aside this part. But they cut this portion. That is the reason RGV and I came forward to do a movie on it.Talking about the YSRCP funding Lakshmi’s NTR, Rakesh Reddy said, “This is no connection between my party and this cinema. Party usually does fund anything. As you know, political leaders will never give money. The leaders of any party make you spend money for them, but they won’t do it for you.” Lakshmi’s NTRTwitterRakesh Reddy added, “I am a semi politician and in to complete politics. Since I am into business field, I am spending money. If I become bankrupt, even I may not do it. No politician will give you tea for free. Why any politicians will fund crores of rupees on Ram Gopal Varma’s movie. He is a well settled filmmakers with a big office in Mumbai. He has his own business transaction.”Talking about RGV, Rakesh Reddy, said, “After release of this film, many people will queue up to do films with him. He has so many stories. He will come back on track. It is not true that any party is funding this film. Even I was told that Nara Chandrababu Naidu will give Rs 50 crore to Ram Gopal Varma and the latter will sell out himself for money. But he is a man with a lot of self-respect and he will break his promises.”last_img read more

Magnetic Microchips Replaces Electronic Semiconductor

This research follows the team’s groundbreaking first step in 2002 at Durham, when they managed to create a basic computer operation or ‘logic gate’ using a magnetic microchip. Since 2002 the team has created a number of further ‘logic gates’ and created interconnecting structures using magnetic ‘nanowires ‘, which can now reproduce the logic functions of a conventional computer empowered by semiconductor electronics. Dr Del Atkinson of Durham University comments on this success are: “This new technology offers a number of advantages over conventional computers. Electronic microchips generate a lot of heat, which creates the need for fans in PC units, whereas these magnetic microchips do not generate this heat. . The magnetic microchips that have been created are also simpler and potentially cheaper to produce than the electronic chips. They are economical insofar as they use simple metals layers.This would also imply that the computers being economical would become still more disposable. “ This means that they could be used for cheap and therefore disposable simple computers in the future., “ Dr. Atkinson further commented: “These developments are important and exciting and while there is still some way to go, the potential is there to create a whole new technology based on magnetism rather than electricity.”This use of magnetism, rather than that of electricity has potential of being exploited further .The team is working in the rapidly growing field of nanotechnology, harnessing the magnetic properties of electrons, rather than their electrical charge on which conventional electronics is based.

Keeping theatre alive

first_imgMovies gets fame, television gets wealth, but it is theatre that gives the greatest satisfaction, say most theatre veterans. Om Puri who passed away and had been a veteran of the National School of Drama often said he never got from cinema the joy he got from acting on stage in the presence of a receptive audience. It is that rapport with the audience that keeps theatre alive.Delhi’s Tadpole Repertory and Tokyo based theatre collective Hanchu-Yuei have collaborated to add new flavor to modern theatre with “This will only take several Minutes” at OddBird Theatre and Foundation, New Delhi on February 2 and 3 – presented by The Japan Foundation, New Delhi. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”This will be the opening performance for the Japan Foundation New Delhi in 2017, The Year of Japan-India Friendly Exchanges, and will be a representation of the great relationship between the two countries”, says Misako Futsuki, Director of Art & Cultural Exchange at the Foundation.’This Will Only Take Several Minutes’ is set in a city not far from yours. Six strangers confront themselves and each other, seeking out their place and purpose. They grapple with hunger and sickness, love and solitude, through their shadowy pasts and the foggy present. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive In all of this there is but one certainty – that they cannot escape this place and must try anything they can to bear it.Tadpole Repertory is a theatre collective of actors, writers, musicians and designers. The group is dedicated to presenting original written and devised performances on subjects that are relevant and compelling to audiences today. The approach to stagecraft seeks to rise above the limitations of independent theatre in the country, and to push its boundaries and conventions. Tadpole’s productions include Taramandal (2010), winner of the Hindu MetroPlus Play-writer Award in 2010; a critically acclaimed production of William Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, A Brief History of the Pantomimes and NDLS, a variety sketch show about life in Delhi. Futsuki added, “It’s been a great pleasure for me to organize this project. As a director of Arts & Cultural Exchange Programme at the Japan Foundation, New Delhi, I strongly feel the necessity of cultural projects in more mutual ways to learn from each other, not just showcase from one side only in this emerging global society. The play is the result of a three-year journey from Tadpole founder Neel Chaudhuri’s first encounter with Suguru’s practice in Japan in 2014.”Collaboration sounds beautiful, but not always so beautiful. There are some difficulties when different cultures meet. However, as the two theatre groups do in this project, if you try to understand and learn from each other, there will always be something wonderful there,” Futsuki said.Playwright and Director, Suguru Yamamoto has attracted attention in Japan and Asia for his unique style of staging that combines projected text, photography, video, color, light, and shadow with performers, as well as his scripts that question our ethics. His play “Girl X” won Best Play and Best Original Script award at the Bangkok Theatre Festival in 2014. Another play, “I can’t die without being born”, was shortlisted for the 59th Kishida Kunio Drama Award in 2015.last_img read more

Puerto Rico bail referendum sparks rights debate

first_imgAssociated PressSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – A day after his teenage son was killed in a drive-by shooting, Luis Arvelo found some comfort in the arrest of a body shop worker suspected in the slaying. But that quickly evaporated hours later when he learned the man had been freed after posting a $33,000 bail bond.Puerto Rico currently is the only place in the Western hemisphere where all people, including those charged with rape and murder, are always entitled to bail. But under an upcoming referendum that would allow judges in the U.S. territory to deny bail in certain cases, the man charged with killing Arvelo’s son could have remained behind bars. “It wasn’t out of fear,” the elder Arvelo said. “One time I ended up in a fight with him.”Rosa was eventually found guilty and sentenced to 129 years in prison.Arvelo said he’s baffled by people who have had family or friends killed and do not support the referendum. “How is it possible that those people have gone through this situation and are not in favor?” he said.Myra Rivera Torres, whose daughter was killed by a stray bullet in 1997 while at a club in historic Old San Juan, is among referendum opponents. No one was arrested in her daughter’s killing.“We don’t want to take away anyone’s rights,” said Rivera, founder of a nonprofit group that seeks social justice and equality while still defending victims’ rights. “A person is presumed innocent until they are found guilty. One has to think about these things objectively, not viscerally.”Rivera said her organization instead demands a more efficient judicial system that would award more protection to witnesses, noting that several have been killed in recent years.But Luis Guillermo Romero, whose 19-year-old son was fatally stabbed last April, backs the referendum effort. Because Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, its federal judges have the right to deny bail, and they have done so for 264 suspects out of 280 arrested for violent crimes, Fortuno said. “It is time that judges in Puerto Rico tribunals have the same discretion,” he said.The leader of Puerto Rico’s main opposition party also supports the referendum, which is among several measures to fight crime, including a plan to create courts that will deal exclusively with murder cases and authorize the permanent revocation of bail for those charged with killing security guards, police officers and other judicial officials.If approved by voters on Aug. 19, the measure would allow judges to refuse bail for certain kinds of murders: those that were pre-meditated, committed during a home invasion, during a sexual assault or kidnapping, or during a drive-by shooting, or targeting public officials.However, voters in 1994 rejected a similar referendum, with 46 percent in favor and 54 percent against. Legislators said that earlier measure lost because it was too far-reaching and would have allowed judges to deny bail in any case, regardless of the crime involved.In the latest referendum effort, a committee to fight the measure was formed last month by several prominent groups and institutions including Puerto Rico’s Association of Lawyers, a local private university and the Council of Churches. “They are massacring the constitution of Puerto Rico,” former senator Victoria Munoz Mendoza said at the committee’s first meeting. But crime victim advocates largely support the referendum, saying that victims and their relatives often fear pressing charges or testifying against someone they could run into on the small island if they are freed on bail.Currently, Puerto Rico’s constitution prohibits judges from denying bail or setting a bail considered excessively high, a determination left up to the interpretation of the court. Defense attorneys can also demand that a different judge establish a new bail if they don’t agree with the original amount set.“I have seen a case in which someone set a $1 million bond and someone else lowered it to $50,000 and it was posted,” said Justice Secretary Guillermo Somoza.During fiscal year 2010, there were more than 3,700 requests to lower the original bond, and judges granted most, Somoza said, adding that no department keeps statistics on the highest bail set.Felix Arvelo was riding home in a friend’s car in May 2010 when someone shot into the vehicle and hit the 16-year-old in the back of the head, killing him. The next morning, police arrested Juan Rosa Perez, a body shop worker they believe had personal issues with the boy.Rosa remained free for the year and 10 days before the trial, according to the dead boy’s father, who said he stayed at home for days at a time because he didn’t want to run into the suspect in San Sebastian, a town of about 42,000 people an hour’s drive inland from Puerto Rico’s northwest coast. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like The referendum has sparked a debate on the island about the rights of suspects and those of victims and their families.“It was painful to see this person and know that my son is 7 feet underground and he was out on the street,” Arvelo said.The right to bail has long been enshrined in the U.S. territory as a legacy of the islanders’ historic distrust of American authorities, and Puerto Ricans have defended an individual’s right to freedom, especially those who have been marginalized.Elsewhere in Latin America and across the Caribbean, it’s common for suspects to languish in jails even if they haven’t been charged with anything. In the U.S., meanwhile, judges have the right to deny bail if someone has been charged with a violent crime or if prosecutors prove the suspect is a danger to the community or at risk of fleeing.In Puerto Rico, legislators see the referendum as a way to fight crime and the perception among many that the violence is out of control, with police reporting a record number of killings last year. Gov. Luis Fortuno, whose party supports statehood, also seeks to align himself with U.S. authorities during an election year as Puerto Rico prepares for an unrelated referendum that would help decide the future of the island’s political status. “The most important right that exists is the right to life,” Romero said, adding that he understands others’ objections. “People are suspicious about the government. As a result, they have a visceral reaction of doubting things that come from politicians.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The location of SKYE Suites Sydney is within easy walking distance to the International Convention Centre, Darling Square, Barangaroo precinct and transport that connects to the rest of the city.”“This is an exciting project for Sydney as Arc by Crown Group will be the first collection of serviced apartments to redefine the west corridor of the city – tapping into the business and financial district of the CBD. We are thrilled to be offering a luxury boutique and service-orientated apartments for guests and ‘Sydneysiders,’” concludes Taranto.The introduction of SKYE Suites Sydney comes after Crown Group’s move into the luxury hotel arena with SKYE Hotels Suites Parramatta, which opened in August 2017. Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO Iwan Sunito says, “We are incredibly excited to open our doors to SKYE Suites Sydney after such success in Parramatta. This architectural masterpiece in the city’s CBD will not only form a striking addition to Sydney’s skyline, but will also enhance the existing streetscape for domestic and international guests and ‘Sydneysiders.’”For more information and to book a stay, please visit or contact us by email: read more
