Governor Wolf Honors Victims’ Rights Boost with Ceremonial Bill Signing

first_imgGovernor Wolf Honors Victims’ Rights Boost with Ceremonial Bill Signing Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today signed six bills that will expand protections and support for crime victims. He was joined by Pennsylvania Victim Advocate Jennifer Storm, legislators and advocates at the ceremonial bill signing. Gov. Wolf first signed the bills on June 28.“We’re here today to recognize a successful joint effort at bringing a package of bills across the finish line that will help ensure Pennsylvania’s criminal justice system supports victims,” Gov. Wolf said.The bills include:• House Bill 315, which criminalizes female genital mutilation by making it a first-degree felony.• House Bill 502, which amends the Crime Victims Act to allow the victim to be present in any criminal proceeding unless the court determines the victim’s own testimony would be altered by hearing other witnesses.• House Bill 504, which prevents prosecutors from bringing up the victim’s sexual history or prior allegations of sexual abuse while prosecuting certain crimes.• Senate Bill 399, which makes updates to the Sexual Assault Testing and Evidence Collection Act, including requiring the Pennsylvania State Police to create procedures for anonymous victims and establishing timelines for submitting, testing, and storing rape kits.• Senate Bill 469, which establishes procedures protecting victims and witnesses with intellectual disabilities or autism spectrum disorder, including allowing for testimony and questioning to take place outside of a courtroom.• Senate Bill 479, which expands the list of crimes for which an out-of-court statement made by a child under 12 can be used.“This legislative session has been unprecedented and historic in its passage of laws that seek to protect crime victims in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Jennifer Storm said.“These bills will make it easier for prosecutors to pursue justice by eliminating some of the deterrents that are keeping victims from speaking out,” Gov. Wolf said. “Victims have been through enough. They deserve the most support we can possible give them.” July 15, 2019center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The original house at Mansfield before it was destroyed by fire.

What remained of the original house after the fire. Supplied.The owners – husband and wife Jonathan and Elizabeta Gamez, and brother-in-law Christian Gamez – have since built a modern, five bedroom “family entertainer” on the block. What the current owners bought for $490,000 back in 2016Mrs Gamez said neighbours had told them that the original house – a housing commission property – was destroyed after a fire broke out under the house, supposedly due to a tenant “cooking drugs”.“We knew Mansfield was an up-and-coming area and within one of the state’s top high school catchments so we bought the land and built this architecturally-designed house,” she said. The new build was the trio’s first major project, with the husband and wife duo having previously completed a number of renovations. The house at 7 Tegula St in Mansfield now Mr Salm will also auction off another property – 17-21 Ajinby Close at Thornlands – at the event.Called Hawstead, that historic Queenslander sits on a whopping 6994 sqm block and was built by Colonel Edward Drury back in 1876.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus10 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market10 hours agoMr Salm said that house, which has been extensively restored and renovated, is also being sold after the vendor found new love.“It is love all around,” he laughed.

Aust Labour leader hopeful wants homosexual quota

first_imgABC News 29 Sept 2013Labor leadership candidate Bill Shorten wants to introduce quotas to boost the number of gay and lesbian politicians in Parliament.Mr Shorten is continuing his pitch to the party membership, sending out a manifesto that calls for the introduction of quotas for politicians representing minority groups.He says the party should consider quotas for Indigenous Australians and the lesbian, gay, bixsexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community.Neil Fharaoh, the national convenor of Rainbow Labor, which represents the party’s LGBTI members, says it is a step forward.“The LGBTI community has been underrepresented, particularly in political seats, both at a state and federal level in Australia,” he said.“There’s probably only 12 gay and lesbian identifying politicians across the country and probably not too much more in the history and its definitely underrepresentative.http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2013-09-28/shorten-wants-quotas-to-boost-number-of-gay-politicians/4987276last_img read more

8 foods that keep you cool

first_imgFood & DiningLifestyle 8 foods that keep you cool by: – September 9, 2014 Sharing is caring! Summer is synonymous with cold beers, days by the pool and frozen desserts. It’s all about beating the heat. However, foods that seem like chill choices may have the opposite effect. According to traditional Chinese medicine, there exists “warming foods” and “cooling foods.”“It is said that the cooling foods help to clear heat and toxins from the body, whereas the warming foods increase circulation and raise qi or vital energy,” explains Kerry Bajaj, certified health coach at Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York City. Reach for the following eight foods this summer for some sweet, healthy relief.CucumberBeing “cool as a cucumber” might actually have some weight to it. Cucumbers are incredibly hydrating, and staying adequately hydrated during the hotter months is crucial. Snack on cucumber slices and hummus, or if you’re truly desperate for some heat relief, “A green juice with lots of cucumber and lemon is a great way to stay hydrated and cool,” says Bajaj. Either way, you’ll reap the benefits.WatermelonNo day at the beach is complete without some fresh slices of watermelon, and you’re actually doing your body a favor by keeping the tradition alive. “It’s so helpful to eat seasonally, says Bajaj.” In the summer, cooling foods like watermelon can act like internal A/C, while in the winter, warming foods like meat, spices and root vegetables can act like an internal space heater.”PeachesOriginally cultivated in China, peaches are another cool, seasonal pick. Not only are they delicious this time of year, but they also contain vitamins A and C, which promote healthy skin, and at 35 to 50 calories a pop, they make the perfect diet-friendly dessert.ApplesPair apples with peanut butter for the perfect snack that will cool you down and fill you up. Apples contain about 4 grams of fiber for around 95 calories. They also contain a type of soluble fiber called pectin, which has been found to stop hunger in its tracks and aid in weight loss. For an extra dose of on-the-go refreshment, pick up an Apple-Ade, a freshly squeezed blend of apples, lemon and ginger, at Jamba Juice.PineappleAlong with banana, spinach, kale and cucumber, pineapple makes for a kick-ass green smoothie booster. In fact, all of these ingredients are considered to be cooling, so blend away! Pineapple is also the only known source of an enzyme called bromelain, which is credited for reducing inflammation in the body.Leafy greensIs there anything that leafy greens can’t do for your body? Spinach, kale, collard greens and romaine take the nutritional cake for healing and helping your body. Since greens have a high water content, they’re easy to digest. This means your body doesn’t have to work as hard, which saves you energy and keeps you cool.LemonsCitrus has an incredible cooling effect on the body and also promotes detoxification. Everyone knows how important it is to drink a ton of water every day, but plain ol’ H2O can be boring. Time and time again, experts recommend adding lemon to your water not only for its skin and immune-boosting benefits, but because it actually encourages you to drink more water overall.ZucchiniZucchini is actually a type of summer squash that can range in color from yellow to a dark green. In addition to containing vitamin C and important phytonutrients, zucchini is a great source of manganese. The mineral can help protect your body from free radicals (particularly of concern during the summer months when you’re more susceptible to sun damage) and also promotes collagen production and healthy bone tissue growth.Helathy Living Share 211 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Tweet Sharelast_img read more

Hurricanes find rare win in close contest with Red Force

first_imgTHE Leeward Islands Hurricanes would have done a lot to boost their confidence after a rare victory over the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the Regional four-day tournamnet at the Queen’s Park Oval on Saturday.The Hurricanes got home by the skin of their teeth, claiming a one-wicket victory, probably the closest this season.The game had been close throughout, with the Hurricanes restricting the Red Force to 222 in their first innings thanks to Sheno Berridge’s 4-72, and Jeremiah Louis’, 4-45.Mervin Matthew chipped in with 1-26 and Jason Campbell ended the innings with 1-23.The Hurricanes’ response was underwhelming, as skipper Kieran Powell, could only manage 15 at the top of the order, and Montcin Hodge, who has been in good form of late, only managed 11.It was the lower-order who showed some fight, taking the total to 163, with Akeem Saunders’ 49, the highlight.The difference-maker in that Hurricanes first innings was the bowling of Imran Khan, whose 5-25 was devastating.Khary Pierre chipped in with 2-26, while Tion Webster, 1-44, Daniel St Clair, 1-27, and Anderson Phillip, 1-38, also made inroads.Though the Red Force now had a 59-run lead, they were by no means comfortable.The situation got even tighter when Berridge, 4-40, led an attack that reduced the Red Force to just 162.Berridge received great support from the bowling of Matthew, who ended with 2-27, Louis, 2-49, and newcomer, Chaim Holder, who bagged 2-19.A lead of 221, took the game to where it had started, the Hurricanes staring at a small lead but unsure of what to do with it.Coach Winston Benjamin had said the team was suffering from a crisis of confidence, and their approach to the small total suggests he was right.RED FORCE 1st Innings 222Hurricanes 1st Innings 163Red Force 2nd Innings(overnight 143 for eight)A Jangoo c Matthew b Berridge 38J Solozano lbw b Holder 10Y Cariah c wkp Hamilton b Holder 7E Nicholson c Saunders b Mathew 5*D Ramdin c Mathew b Berridge 28T Webster c wkp Hamilton b Louis 10+S Katwaroo b Louis 14Imran Khan lbw b Berridge 1K Pierre lbw b Mathew 10D St Clair not out 12A Phillip lbw b Berridge 9Extras (lb12, w1, nb4) 17TOTAL (all out, 58.4 overs) 162Fall of wickets: 1-52, 2-55, 3-66, 4-67, 5-86, 6-116, 7-119, 8-131, 9-147, 10-162.Bowling: Mathew 14-4-27-2, Louis 16-4-49-2, Berridge 14.2-4-40-4, Holder 11-1-19-2, Campbell 3-0-15-0.HURRICANES 2nd Innings (target: 222 runs)M Hodge c Webster b Phillip 5*K Powell c Webster b Imran Khan 41K Carty c Pierre b Phillip 2D Thomas lbw b Pierre 65A Saunders c St Clair b Imran Khan 38+J Hamilton c wkp Katwaroo b Imran Khan 13J Louis b Imran Khan 13M Mathew b St Clair 3C Holder lbw b Imran Khan 7J Campbell not out 30S Berridge not out 0Extras (b3, lb4, nb2) 9TOTAL (9 wkts, 70.3 overs) 226Fall of wickets: 1-12, 2-14, 3-107, 4-123, 5-150, 6-182, 7-187, 8-193, 9-205.Bowling: Phillip 7-2-23-2, St Clair 12-2-29-1, Pierre 23-2-64-1, Webster 3-0-16-0, Imran Khan 25.3-4-87-5.last_img read more
