Facebook Twitter Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 17, 2017 A mostly dry start to the week this week, with no serious precipitation action until Thursday up north, and then over more of the state on Friday. The stagnant remains of an old frontal boundary over central Indiana lit up a few showers and thunderstorms yesterday, and we won’t completely rule that out today either. But, in general, we are looking for fairly nice, dry weather over the next 3 days. Temps will be climbing through midweek.Thursday, we have some moisture moving into the northern third of the state, an offshoot of a frontal complex that is more bent on hitting MI and the great lakes region. This will trigger rain totals of a few hundredths to perhaps .3” over areas from US 24 northward, and in far NW Indiana, we can see some rains over half an inch early on Thursday in southern Lake and southern Porter counties. The rest of the state stays dry. On Friday, a slow, sagging trough moves through the rest of the state, bringing rain totals of .1”-.5” with coverage at 50%. These rains will leave a lot of areas wanting for more. The above map shows a snapshot of potential precipitation at midday on Friday.The weekend shows an active precipitation track, mostly over the northern half to third of the state through Saturday and most of Sunday. Areas north of I0-70 can see rain totals of a few hundredths to half an inch over both days combined with coverage at no better than 60%. Southern Indiana continues with no significant ran chances. Temps remain above normal.We dry down again for next week, with no significant rain chances anywhere in Indiana for Monday through Wednesday. In the extended window, we do have a weak front moving in around the 28th with some potential rain totals up to half an inch and coverage at 60%, but the rest of the 11-16 day forecast period is dry, with temps above normal. While we still do not see what we would term “oppressive” heat building in, we do think that all of the coming 2 weeks will be above normal to some scale, and highs from the mid-80s to low 90s will be pretty much expected for most of the rest of the month…beginning with our slow build this week.

EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedCitizen-journalistsFreedom of expression November 15, 2018 – Updated on November 19, 2018 Shawkan still in prison three months after completing five-year term February 6, 2021 Find out more Shawkan will not be completely free even after he is released. Unless his sentence is overturned on appeal, his release will be conditional for five years, which could mean having to spend nights in a police station. RSF_en January 22, 2021 Find out more Shawkan completed his fifth year in detention on 14 August, three weeks before a court finally sentenced him to five years in prison. He has been held ever since his arrest on 14 August 2013 while covering the use of deadly violence to disperse a mass protest in support of the then recently deposed Muslim Brotherhood government. Shawkan’s lawyer reports that the prosecutor’s office has now decided to extend his detention by six months, which would mean he would not get out of prison until mid-February 2019. Nonetheless, a release can be delayed for no more than three months on the grounds of non-payment and those three months expired yesterday in Shawkan’s case. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of Mahmoud Abou Zeid, the Egyptian photojournalist also known as Shawkan, who should have been freed after getting a five-year jail sentence in September because he had already been held arbitrarily for more than five years. Prosecutors now say he will be held until mid-February. News Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison “Shawkan’s detention was already unacceptable,” said Sophie Anmuth, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “He should never have spent even a single day in prison just for doing his job as a journalist. Prolonging his detention on unfair administrative grounds is even more incomprehensible. Keeping him in prison now is contrary to all principles of law. Shawkan must be freed at once.” Organisation News News February 1, 2021 Find out more Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff to go further EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedCitizen-journalistsFreedom of expression Receive email alerts Follow the news on Egypt The reason why Shawkan has not been able to pay his legal costs is surreal. Because he was one of several hundred defendants in the same mass trial, the judicial authorities have apparently been overwhelmed and have not yet been able to tell him how much he owes. With at least 38 professional and non-professional journalists currently held in connection with their reporting, independent journalism is dying in Egypt, which is ranked 161st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Help by sharing this information Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution In Egypt, prisoners often have to wait several days or even weeks between a release order and their actual release. According to Shawkan’s lawyer, the delay has lasted so long in his case because he has not yet been able to make the payment of legal costs or a possible fine that is necessary before being released.

According to the United States Department of Labor, this is the largest increase in history, as the previous high was 695,000 in October of 1982.“This sudden increase in UI claims reflects the shock to demand in the economy,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “For a large segment of the workforce, the rapidly deteriorating employment situation is due to the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as the associated policy restrictions and shifts in consumer behavior, both aimed at avoiding infection. We interpret this morning’s release as a strong leading indicator of an expected increase in household financial stress.”Most states cited COVID-19 virus impacts in their unemployment reports. States continued to cite services industries broadly, particularly accommodation and food services. Additional industries heavily cited for the increases included the health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment and recreation, transportation and warehousing, and manufacturing industries.In an effort to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19, Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed to a stimulus package that totals more than $2 trillion early Wednesday morning. Senate passed th economic relief package Wednesday night; it now heads to the House.”The stimulus bill proposal currently working its way through Congress seeks to address certain features of the UI systems, such as eligibility requirements and the amount and maximum duration of benefits paid, which are intended to help alleviate some of the financial stressed caused by job loss,” Duncan continues. “Furthermore, payments to households are designed to make up for lost earnings. Proposed support for businesses is intended to help them survive the shock to demand in order to be positioned to re-hire workers after the virus subsides and demand picks back up.”Editor’s note: this story is breaking, check back for updates.

One of the charges against the accused-appellant in this case was that he forced a person to put his signature on a 50 rupee stamp paper and three blank papers affixed with revenue stamps. Therefore, the issue considered by the Court was whether mere putting of signature on blank papers under compulsion would amount to making of a false document? Taking note of the provisions in Indian Penal Code dealing with Forgery [Sections 463,464], Justice VG Arun said: The first and second limb of the Section is applicable when the accused himself commits the acts enumerated therein whereas under thirdly, the accused causes another person to dishonestly or fraudulently do certain acts. But even under the third limb, the act of forcing another person to sign on blank papers does not amount to making a false document. Another issue was whether, a or blank paper containing only a signature can be termed as a ‘document’. Section 29 of IPC defines the word ‘document’ as te any matter expressed or described upon any substance by means of letters, figures or marks or by more than one of those means, intended to be used or which may be used, as evidence of that matter. The definition under Indian Evidence Act is also similar. The Court said: “Going by the definitions, in order to term a substance as a document, some matter should have been expressed or described on that substance by means of letter, figures or marks and such matter should be intended to be used as evidence of that matter. It is doubtful whether the act of putting a signature on blank paper can be termed as expression or description of any matter intended to be used as evidence of that matter and thereby, bringing it within the meaning of ‘document’ under Section 29 of IPC. ” Allowing the appeal, the court held that the conviction of the appellant under Sections 365, 395 and 468 IPC cannot be legally sustained.

While acknowledging that there’s a strong need for AIIMS to augment its capacity by adding more junior doctors on their rolls in the present scenario, the Single Bench of Justice Jayant Nath noted that while conducting the exams, AIIMS will be bound by all advisories/guidelines regarding precautions to be taken for these gatherings as prescribed and as per usual medical norms. The order has come in a writ petition asking the court to quash the order dated 01/06/20 by AIIMS wherein it has fixed the date of 11.06.2020 for the PG entrance examination. Petitioners, who are all MBBS doctors, submitted that COVID-19 cases are exploding day-to-day and have crossed 2.5 lakhs. In view thereof conducting PG entrance test on 11.06.2020 at this crucial point would be incorrect. Petitioners also placed reliance on the decision of the National Testing Agency to postpone several other examinations. The Petitioner further argued that there is no need to hold the examination at this point to augment the numbers of doctors available with AIIMS inasmuch as AIIMS can easily appoint non-academic junior residents doctors on contractual basis. While pointing out that large amount of resources have already been invested in conducting these exams at 250 centres across the country, the counsel appearing for AIIMS submitted that all precautions which are prescribed by the concerned governments including norms of Social-Distancing etc. would be maintained while carrying out the examination. Medical Council of India also supported the stance taken by AIIMS by stating that given the present pandemic conditions prevailing this would augment the medical capacity of AIIMS which is a very important aspect. At the outset, the court observed that the petition is liable to be dismissed on the basis of delay and laches as the Petitioners approached the court just two days before the scheduled date of the examination. Even otherwise, the court further said, there is a clear stipulation that all advisories/guidelines of Government of India regarding Social-Distance and Sanitization are to be followed at the exam centres. Hence safety measures are being taken. Therefore, the court held: ‘Clearly, there are no cogent reasons to postpone the PG entrance examination as is sought to be urged now at the very last minute. The respondent/AIIMS will be bound by all advisories/guidelines regarding precautions to be taken for these gatherings as prescribed and as per usual medical norms.’ The Petitioners in this case were represented by Mr Md.Azam Ansari, Mr. Athar Alam and Mr. Sumbol Atha.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
Sacramento Police Department(LOS ANGELES) — The suspected “Golden State Killer” who was arrested this week for killing and raping dozens of California residents decades ago, seemed shocked to find police outside his home, according to Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department official Paul Belli.Joseph James DeAngelo, a 72-year-old former police officer, was taken into custody on Tuesday at his home in Citrus Heights in Sacramento County, the same county where his alleged crime spree began in 1976. The crimes continued across the state until 1986.DeAngelo lived at the home with family but was home alone when he was arrested, Belli told ABC News.DeAngelo told police he had a roast in the oven, and officers said they could take care of it, Belli said.He was placed under arrest without incident.Colleen Fernandez, who lives in DeAngelo’s neighborhood, told ABC News, “We walked by that house all the time … but we never saw him.”“I’m just thankful he got caught,” Fernandez said. “It’s huge for this community. Even though it was 40 years ago, people still remembered.”Fernandez lived in the Sacramento area during the years of the “Golden State Killer” crime spree, calling it “a scary time.”“I was just a young woman. It was frightening. You’d definitely lock your doors and your windows,” she said. “You had buddy system. I worked at a restaurant — I made sure somebody walked me to my car.”Another neighbor, Robin Brown, noticed the police tape at DeAngelo’s home but figured he was getting his driveway repaved.“We’ve always felt safe in this neighborhood,” she said.DeAngelo is believed to have committed 12 murders, at least 50 rapes and multiple home burglaries in the 1970s and 1980s.His alleged “reign of terror” spanned from the Sacramento area in Northern California down to Orange County in Southern California, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said Wednesday.Today, investigators will conduct a methodical, room-by-room search of his home, Belli said.Authorities have a list of items stolen from victims’ homes as well as other items connected to crimes, including weapons.DeAngelo was a police officer in Exeter, California, from 1973 to 1976, officials said.In 1976 he served as a police officer in the city of Auburn until he was fired in 1979 for allegedly stealing a hammer and a can of dog repellent, The Associated Press reported, citing Auburn Journal articles from the time.DeAngelo then spent 27 years working for Save Mart Supermarkets at a distribution center in Roseville, near Sacramento, said Victoria Castro, a public affairs manager for Save Mart. He retired last year.“None of his actions in the workplace would have lead us to suspect any connection to crimes being attributed to him,” Castro said in a statement. “We are working with the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office on their investigation.”Last week, DeAngelo’s name came up for the first time in the “Golden State Killer” investigation, Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said.DeAngelo was then surveilled and DNA from an item police had collected of his was confirmed as a match.He has not yet appeared in court.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

ChiccoDodiFC/iStock(DALLAS) — A transgender woman seen brutally attacked in a widely circulated video last month was shot to death in Dallas over the weekend.Muhlaysia Booker, 23, was found “lying face down” on a Dallas road early Saturday morning, police said, adding to a fast-growing number of homicides involving people who identify as transgender. Officers with the Dallas Police Department said the slaying was the result of “homicidal violence,” but it stopped short of calling it a hate crime.“We recognize that hate crimes, if you will, are a serious topic,” Assistant Dallas Police Chief Avery Moore said at a press conference Sunday. “We at the Dallas Police Department take them serious.”A video of Booker drew national attention last month when it circulated online, showing a brutal beating by several men in the parking lot of an apartment complex as a crowd cheered.She told police that the incident occurred after a minor traffic accident and that the men yelled homophobic and transphobic slurs at her.Video of the encounter showed a man in a white, long-sleeved T-shirt and white shorts as he ran up to her and threw her down. He then pinned her to the ground and started raining punches on the woman’s head. Several other men joined in the assault, stomping and kicking her as she struggled, until a group of women intervened.The incident was flagged as a possible hate crime, and police arrested 29-year-old Edward Thomas two days later on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He has since been released on bond.Booker, who sustained a concussion and a fractured wrist in the gruesome beating, said she was lucky to have survived.“This has been a rough week for myself, the transgender community and also the city of Dallas,” Booker said an April press conference. “This time, I can stand before you … whereas in other scenarios, we are at a memorial.”Investigators said there was not enough information to say if her death may have been connected to the April attack. The police department did not offer any information about a potential suspect in the slaying.Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, who said the video made him “extremely angry,” offered his condolences to Booker’s family and loved ones in the wake of her death.“I am deeply saddened to learn of the murder of Muhlaysia Booker,” he said in a tweet on Sunday. “I call on anyone with information on this homicide to please contact the Dallas Police Department.”At least 26 transgender people were killed in the U.S. in 2018, with black transgender women targeted the most, according to a statement from the Human Rights Campaign, an advocacy group.At least three transgender people have been violently killed so far in 2019, the HRC said.“As HRC continues to work toward justice and equality for transgender people,” the organization said, “we mourn those we have lost.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Databases and Geographical Information Systems are becoming increasingly popular tools for biogeographic analysis. The reliability of the analysis depends on the accuracy of the entered data and the ability to add changes in systematics and taxonomy. The main aim of the Southern Ocean Mollusc Database (SOMBASE) project is to set up a database linked with a GIS and user-friendly front end. This system allows for the inclusion of other taxa in the future. Currently the database consists of records for 950 shelled gastropod and 136 bivalve species and 2800 sites from the Southern Ocean. The database contains fields including: 1) Taxonomic authorship, synonyms, higher level classifications, diagnostic morphological characters, and ecological features; 2) Distributional information including substrate and depth; 3) Bibliographic information. The maps can display selected sites based on any query of any field or combination of fields in the database. An online version of the database is available with distribution maps for all taxonomic levels (www.antarctica.ac.uk/SOMBASE).
will have a full episode featuring John “JoJo” Hermann of Widespread Panic next Wednesday. Today, however, the program dropped its fourth “Tweener” episode in observance of the passing of legendary musician Prince a year ago today. This mini-episode harkens back to InsideOut wTnS’ Episode 19 which featured extensive interviews with Roger McNamee (Incredibly Prescient Business Mogul, Doobie Decibel System, Moon Alice) and multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby (Phil Lesh and Friends, Roger Daltrey, Doobie Decibel System and so many others).While McNamee and Crosby each have fascinating stories, this episode focuses on Jason Crosby, a supremely talented musician who has played with an absolutely stunning array of musicians. Jason Crosby first tells about a very special night when he was a member of the Blind Boys of Alabama and Prince showed up side stage. “The bodyguards came over and whispered into Joey’s (Williams, band leader of Blind Boys of Alabama) ear, ‘Prince would like to sit in,” and he walked over (Joey, toward Prince) and was like, ‘do you want this?’ with his guitar. And Prince…met him halfway and grabbed the guitar.” Crosby relates the excitement, and even confusion which resulted from this impromptu collaboration.Then, Jason talks about playing a 1995 gig with Solar Circus in Long Branch, NJ, near Asbury Park the day after Jerry Garcia died. While soundchecking, the band noticed that Bruce Springsteen was sitting at the bar taking in the music. “We sent our elder members of the group….our drummer and guitar player who were like ‘The Guys,’ they went up to him and asked him, “Mr. Springsteen….we have this show tonight, it’s a sold out show, a tribute to Garcia who passed away yesterday. We just have to ask, it’s ok if you say ‘no,’ but would you do one song with us?” Jason tells about how and why this turned into an entire set of Springsteenar Circus, and how over a decade later the spontaneous collaboration was first discussed on , and then later was discussed by Jason and Bruce themselves when they were reunited at Pete Seeger’s 90th Birthday Party at Madison Square Garden.Live For Live Music Presents: The Inside Out With Turner And Seth podcast is slowly but surely earning a reputation for delivering some of the most unique and in-depth music interviews in cyber-land. The program serves up behind-the-scenes “industry” perspectives mixed with journalistic points of view and fan input to offer a unique and varied view of the vast world of organic music–with occasional laughs mixed in for good measure.**For more Inside Out With Turner And Seth episodes, head to their SoundCloud, iTunes, or Stitcher page.

After playing through a set of fan-favorite songs, old and new, the band rang in 2019 with their newest anthem, “Celebration”.In true Mardi Gras fashion, a performer joined the stage to capture the audience with a fanned out, multi-color wingsuit of sorts. Aerialists and dancers also filled the room, including the return of last year’s disco ball man, creating a marvelous spectacle for all those involved.Charging into 2019 after the “Celebration”, the band worked through a debut cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Miss You”, which was followed by the night’s theme, “Otherside of Paradise”.
