Eugene Isenberg, CEO of the Nabors Industries oil and gas firm, will receive $100 million.

October 31, 2011

Nabors Industries CEO Eugene Isenberg is stepping down, and he’s taking $100 million with him.

The 81-year-old Isenberg will be replaced as CEO of the oil and gas drilling firm by Nabors (NBR) President Anthony Petrello but will remain as the firm’s chairman of the board.

According to an April SEC filing, Isenberg is contractually entitled to a $100 million payment in the event that he is fired or that the firm otherwise makes a change in control.

Isenberg, or presumably his estate, would have been paid the money even in the event of his death.

News of the payout was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Brian Uhlmer, senior oil service analyst at Global Hunter Securities, called Isenberg’s payout “obviously a negative for shareholders.”

20 biggest CEO pay raises

“The man obviously doesn’t need the money and he’s already been compensated for all of the work that he’s done there,” Uhlmer said.

“This is an unnecessary expense in my mind, but there’s no way around it,” Uhlmer added. “The board was not going to be able to push him out of the position without the payment.”

In a non-binding vote at the Nabors annual meeting earlier this year, 57% of shareholders who voted came out against the compensation packages for Nabors executives, according to a June SEC filing.

Isenberg took over Nabors as it emerged from bankruptcy in 1987 and showed “extraordinary leadership” in leading it to profitability, the firm said in a statement Friday, though it did not offer a reason for his departure.

Since the start of this year, Nabors’ share price is down 20%. That’s a steeper decline than its rivals: Schlumberger’s (SLB) stock is down around 11% so far this year, while Halliburton (HAL, Fortune 500) is down 8% and Anadarko (APC, Fortune 500) is up 5%.

Shares of Nabors were down 2.9% in trading on Monday afternoon.

In 2009, Isenberg was ranked on CNNMoney’s list of the “5 most overpaid CEOs” after earning $79.3 million in compensation the previous year and more than $600 million over his career.

Anna Chapman, now a television star and sometime lingerie model in her native Russia, was the face of the biggest spy swap since the Cold War when she and nine others were arrested in June 2010. On Monday, the FBI released a trove of videos and documents about Chapman and others.

In one, a woman in her late 20s with reddish hair and sporting big sunglasses walks into a New York City coffee shop, takes  a seat and pulls out a laptop computer.  She leans forward to talk to her companion and briefly flashes the smile that turned her into an international sensation.

The agency said it released the videos and documents in response to a Freedom of Information request.

“The arrests of 10 Russian spies last year provided a chilling reminder that espionage on U.S. soil did not disappear when the Cold War ended,” the agency said in an accompanying statement. “The highly publicized case also offered a rare glimpse into the sensitive world of counterintelligence and the FBI’s efforts to safeguard the nation from those who would steal our vital secrets.”

The agency said its investigation into Chapman and others working for the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) went on for more than decade. The investigation was dubbed “Operation Ghost Stories.”

The tapes show Chapman shopping in Macy’s at Herald Square. Additional photos and video show other conspirators burying money in a weed patch, handing off documents or meeting at Columbus Circle. The group was a collection of what is known as illegals because they took civilian jobs rather than working from the Russian Embassy. In general, they seemed to live quiet middle-class lives while burrowing into U.S. society to cultivate contacts.

“Although the SVR ‘illegals,’ as they were called, never got their hands on any classified documents, their intent from the start was serious, well-funded by the SVR, and far-ranging,” the FBI said.“The deep-cover Russian spies may not have achieved their objective, but they were not idle. They collected information and transmitted it back to Russia, and they were actively engaged in what is known in the spy business as ‘spotting and assessing.’ They identified colleagues, friends, and others who might be vulnerable targets, and it is possible they were seeking to co-opt people they encountered in the academic environment who might one day hold positions of power and influence,” according to the FBI.

The suspects were arrested  June 27, 2010. Within days, they pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiring to serve as unlawful agents of the Russian Federation within the U.S. and were deported. The agents were swapped for four Russians imprisoned for spying for the West.

Chapman drew so much interest that Jay Leno, interviewing Vice President Joe Biden, asked: “Do we have any spies that hot?” Replied Biden: “It was not my idea to send her back.”

After her deportation to Russia, Chapman launched her career as recovering spy celebrity.

Kim Kardashian Spills Wedding Secrets | Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries

19 August 2011    06:55 PM

Wholly monetized matrimony

Kim Kardashian and basketballer Kris Humphries are to be married Saturday at an estate in Montecito, Calif.,
in a made-for-TV celebration of love, devotion and product placement that’s been
estimated to cost $10 million.

Everything about the extravaganza — dress designer, cake maker, stationer,
gift registry (it totals $172,000), Kardashian brand perfume — has been touted
on websites, entertainment shows and Kardashian’s blog and Twitter pages.

The run-up and the ceremony are being filmed for an October special on E!

The marriage will be her second and his first. Kardashian was hitched to
music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries said “I Do” in an elaborate, very public
ceremony over the summer, and now comes word that the reality starlet and her
basketball player hubby are calling it quits just 72 days after tying the knot.

TMZ reported that Kim filed for divorce from Humphries on
Monday (October 31), coincidentally the scariest day of the year. Sources told
the site that Kim is not seeking an annulment and cites “irreconcilable
differences” as the cause for the split.

The couple reportedly have a prenuptial agreement and celebrity lawyer Laura
Wasser has been tapped to represent Kardashian. According to TMZ, the pair’s $10
million wedding cost approximately $138,888 a day as of October 31. A rep for
Kim had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment as of press time.

photos of Kim and Kris’ whirlwind romance.

However, Ryan Secreast, who produces the reality star’s E! shows, confirmed
the news on Twitter, writing, “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce
this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few min.”

The news comes as several tabloids have been reporting on Kim and Kris’
marital woes. Kardashian
and NBA player Humphries married
on August 20 in California in a lavish
ceremony in front of friends, family and E! cameras. “The dresses were so
gorgeous, and watching those beautiful girls walk down the aisle … they are
absolutely stunning,” guest Julianne
Hough gushed to MTV News
after the ceremony. “To just see them walking down
the aisle was just beautiful. And then little Mason, Kourtney’s little boy, he
kind of stole the show.”

The first few months of Kris and Kim’s marriage will be documented on the
second season of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” which kicks off on November
27. In previews for the show, fans have gotten a peek at the short-lived
marriage. “How am I going to have my career and live in Minnesota?” Kim asks
Kris when he suggests they move to his hometown. His response? “Baby, by the
time you have kids and they’re in school, nobody will probably care about you.”

Ambulance near finish line of Rock N Roll Marathon 2011

October 31, 2011      7:40 am

A 37-year-old man who collapsed and died near the finish line of the Los
Angeles Rock ‘n’ Roll half-marathon was identified Monday as Charles Whitmore
Riske of Costa Mesa.

He died about two hours into the event as he kicked into the final stretch of
the race in downtown L.A., officials said.

The runner had previously been identified as being 40-years-old, but L.A.
County Coroner Asst. Chief Ed Winter said Riske was 37. His cause of death had
not been determined.

Paramedics attempted CPR before Riske was taken to a hospital, where he was
pronounced dead at 10:10 a.m., Winter said.

Race officials said Sunday the death was the only serious health issue
associated with the race. More than 8,000 runners ran the 13.1 miles that
started and ended at L.A. Live.

from:  http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/10/marathon-man.html

—————————————————————————————–

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name.

Charles Whitmore Riske

18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) + 12 (l is the 12th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 35

So the number 35 ruled his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

35 = Marathon.  Exhaustion.  Collapse.  Keeling over.

Rock Center

October 31,
2011

Brian Williams will be
moonlighting Mondays this fall, but at least he won’t have a long commute to his
second job. Just a few steps, in fact.

On Monday, NBC
will premiere the live newsmagazine “Rock Center With Brian Williams,” with the
anchor of the No. 1-rated “NBC Nightly News” serving as host. Viewers might find
the setting familiar: Both programs will originate from different corners of the
same space, Studio 3B in the network’s Rockefeller
Center
headquarters in New York.

Long-struggling NBC is angling to
make “Rock Center” the first successful launch of a prime-time broadcast
newsmagazine in 20 years. And it has found an energetic evangelist in the
52-year-old anchor, a proudly old-school newshound who sees the public as
increasingly weary of the shouting matches on cable news and therefore hungry
for quality long-form TV journalism.

“People are coming back to known
faces, brand names, controlled environments,” Williams said by phone last week.
“I’m not going to yell at you, and you’re not going to learn my opinion — nor do
you care…. I think there absolutely is a market for more stories, well
told.”

Whether that’s true or merely wishful thinking might be decided as
early as Tuesday morning, when the first ratings for “Rock Center” come out. As
of late last week, the first episode — opening, perhaps inauspiciously, on Halloween night — was
scheduled to include taped pieces on the resistance movement in Syria and on
Chinese women who pay to come to the U.S. to have children and then return with
American citizenship.

No matter what happens, Williams and his team know
they face long odds.

Although newsmagazines aren’t nearly as popular or
ubiquitous as during their 1980s heyday, “Rock Center” will have competition. As
it nears its 45th anniversary, CBS’ “60
Minutes”
still pulls down impressive ratings on Sunday nights. ABC
News airs “Primetime”
as specials; NBC’s own “Dateline” and CBS’ “48
Hours”
have evolved into true-crime outlets, spitting out the kind of lurid
tabloid tales that Williams has said “Rock Center” will avoid.

NBC, for
its part, has had trouble launching just about any prime-time show lately. “Rock
Center” is replacing “The
Playboy Club,”
a ’60s drama that endured three low-rated episodes before
executives yanked it from the 10 p.m. Monday slot. The network brass is already
trying to manage expectations in a time period opposite two popular crime
dramas, CBS’ “Hawaii
Five-O”
and ABC’s “Castle.”

“I
don’t pretend to think that we’re gonna move the needle in the ratings when we
come out of the gate,” said Steve Capus, president of NBC News.

Williams
puts it even more bluntly. “I know we’re going to get crushed,” he said on MSNBC
last week.

Some analysts agree. “That the show is tossed in at this point
in the season makes it look like NBC is grab-bagging,” said Jeffrey McCall, a
media studies professor at DePauw University, adding that the additions of
former “Nightline”
host Ted Koppel and
other veteran journalists have raised expectations of a high-quality
program.

Even so, “This show will likely struggle to find viewers and its
place in broadcast journalism,” McCall predicted. “I think NBC will have to be
patient.”

That’s exactly what his bosses have promised to be, Williams
says.

The anchor had long wanted to do a newsmagazine — his desk drawers
are crammed with a backlog of story ideas scribbled on paper scraps, he says.
But “Rock Center” got off the ground when the cable giant Comcast officially
took over NBC this year. Starting a newsmagazine was one of the first ideas from
Steve Burke, a Comcast veteran and newly tapped chief executive of NBC
Universal
.

“He was hours into his new job,” Capus said of Burke. “He
saw a need, an opening that he thought we could fill — that the audience had a
desire for a quality newsmagazine.”

At the heart of it all is Williams,
who paid his dues at local TV outlets — he and Capus slaved away together at a
Philadelphia
station in the 1980s — before being snatched up by NBC as a reporter in 1993. A
savvy corporate politician as well as devoted student of TV news, he rose
through the ranks under the tutelage of his mentor, former “Nightly News” anchor
Tom
Brokaw
, finally ascending to anchor in 2004.

Viewers seem to admire
Williams’ low-key style and all-American good looks, although people who know
him often say that “Nightly News” fails to capture his eclectic sensibilities as
well as his dry sense of humor (the latter trait displayed on his 2007 stint
hosting “Saturday
Night Live”
as well as appearances on “The
Daily Show”
and “30
Rock”
).

“Rock Center” has a chance to rectify that. “I hope the
program feels like Brian’s playlist,” said Rome Hartman, an indefatigable former
“60 Minutes” producer hired to oversee the new show.

Behind Williams, NBC
has assembled an all-star team. In addition to Koppel and Hartman, there will be
NBC foreign correspondent Richard Engel, former “Today”
show cohost Meredith
Vieira
and Harry Smith, late
of CBS’ “The Early Show.”

In a somewhat unusual move, producers will
break some stories in their entirety online hours before the telecast, hoping to
spark discussion on social media and generate headlines.

Williams said
the show will typically feature two or three meaty taped stories plus a live
in-studio interview, although the segment order and other details were being
noodled with late last week. “Our first show is gonna look radically different
than it does a year from now,” he predicted.

But the anchorman has always
insisted on one thing: Unlike its newsmagazine rivals, “Rock Center” will be
live, at least to much of the country.

“It’s my choice, and everyone
happily went along with it,” Williams said.

After years before cameras,
he has come to believe that he is different — and worse — on tape. Live
broadcasting is what he knows and feels comfortable with. Recording it takes
away the thrill of the moment, that sense of tightrope walking with no
net.

“It’s an endorphin thing,” Williams said.

—————————————————————————————–
Rock Center premieres on Monday October 31st, 2011
October 31st, 2011
10 + 31 +2+0+1+1 = 45 = Rock Center’s life lesson = what Rock Center is here to learn = Realistic expectations.  It’s going to be tough.

Anneka Vasta

October 31, 2011      7:34 am

A former Penthouse model whose body washed ashore at Camp Pendleton earlier
this year does not appear to be the victim of a homicide or sexual assault, but
many aspects of her case — including a bloody knife — remain a mystery,
investigators said.

The body of 58-year-old Anneka Vasta, also known as Anneka Di Lorenzo, was
found Jan. 4 on Gold Beach. An autopsy later concluded that she had suffered a
broken neck and back before she drowned.

But it remains unclear how Vasta got down to the beach from a 50-foot-tall
bluff and why she had checked in to a motel in Carlsbad. Her car was found at
the scenic overlook.

A knife with a small bit of blood on it was found in her car. Vasta’s body
had superficial cuts on the wrists and two shallow wounds on her chest, which
may have come from a failed attempt at suicide, according to the autopsy.

Jason Keller, special agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service,
and fellow agent Rachel McGranaghan said that nothing in numerous interviews
with Vasta’s friends and relatives suggested that the Sherman Oaks resident had
met with foul play.

Vasta was Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1975 and then had a brief career in
movies. She dated Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione but later sued him for sexual
harassment. He reportedly retaliated by publishing pictures of her in a lesbian
love scene from one of her movies.

In recent years, however, Vasta had had financial problems and was
“emotionally fragile,” the investigators said.

She was found naked, face down in the sand on a stretch of beach used by the
Marine Corps for training. Because the death occurred on military property, the
NCIS launched an investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call (760 725-5150).

File:Herman Cain by Gage Skidmore.jpg

October 31, 2011, 8:48 a.m.

Presidential candidate Herman
Cain
defiantly rejected Monday allegations that he sexually harassed two
employees during the 1990s while he was the head of a trade association in
Washington, calling the claims “false” and “baseless.”

“I have never sexually harassed anyone. Anyone. And
absolutely these are false accusations,” Cain said on an interview on Fox
News Channel
.

Cain, however, said that if the association had arrived at a legal settlement
with the two women, he did not know about it. “I hope it wasn’t for much,” he
said.

Politico reported Sunday evening that two female employees of the National
Restaurant Association accused Cain of improper conduct while Cain was president
and CEO of the organization from late 1996 to 1999.

The women, who were not identified, signed agreements with the association
that included financial payouts and barred them from discussing their
departures, according to the report.

Sources told Politico that the
behavior included, “conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal
questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during
conferences, at other officially sanctioned restaurant association events and at
the association’s offices.”

Cain said that he was aware of the allegations while at the association, but
called them “baseless.” He pledged that no further alleged incidents would come
to light.

“If more allegations come, I assure you people will simply make them up,”
Cain said.

The candidate, who has been surging in the polls
and represents at the moment the greatest conservative challenge to Mitt Romney
for the GOP
nomination, conceded that the allegations had cast a “cloud” over his
campaign.

Cain is in Washington for several days as part of an effort to reach out to a
Republican establishment that has viewed his longshot bid with some skepticism.
Earlier in the day, Cain appeared at a forum on taxes at the American Enterprise
Institute, where a scrum of media awaited him.

He declined to answer a question concerning the allegations, citing the
forum’s ground rules. “I’ll take all the arrows later,” Cain said.

Beyond the Fox News interview, Cain was scheduled to deliver a lunchtime
speech at the National Press Club.

On Fox, Cain was also asked whether his wife of 43 years, Gloria, would soon
be joining him on the campaign trail. He said that she would soon grant an
“exclusive” interview, without providing details.

“She will be introduced in terms of some limited exposure,” he said. “It’s
not her style to be with me on every campaign stop.”

Tasha Casini is one of the wounded Occupy Oakland protesters

October 26, 2011      3:16 pm

An Occupy Oakland protester injured in the clash with police Tuesday night showed off a massive bruise Wednesday that she said she received in a direct hit from a rubber bullet.

Tasha Casini, 22, had been among the protesters camping at Oakland’s central plaza since Oct. 13.

Police said they did not use rubber bullets in the clash with protesters but many of the demonstrators said they had the bruises to prove otherwise.

PHOTOS: Occupy Oakland protest

“It was an anti-repression march,” Casini said of the demonstration, noting that she saw no violence from protesters.

Casini was wounded when she returned with others to try to retake the plaza after the “second or third order to disperse.”

A woman in the crowd was hit by a projectile fired by police, she said. As Casini rushed to help the unconscious demonstrator, she was struck in the back of the thigh.

A flash grenade landed right next to the downed woman’s face, and those trying to assist her were forced to flee.

Casini acknowledged that an officer a few blocks away had been hit with a paintball but said she was appalled at the force of the police response given the overall peaceful nature of the action.

Others seemed to agree. Leandra Johnson, 36, of El Sobrante stood in the intersection at the plaza, holding a sign reading: “We Have the Right to Peaceful Assembly” as motorists honked in support.

It was the mother of five’s first outing in support of the movement.

“Last night is the reason I’m here today, and it’ll be the reason I’m here tomorrow,” she said. “We have dictators falling around the world, and we support peaceful protest in those places, and this happens here.”

She called Oakland’s tactics “very disappointing.”

Richard Rossman, 83, said he and his wife joined other “old farts” in peaceful protest every Monday in Berkeley, where they live, to call for taxation of “the richest Americans.”

He said he thought the Occupy Oakland camp could have been disassembled more effectively.

He noted that Oakland’s gathering had taken on a disturbing flavor, marred by drinking, drugs, trash and violence and a large number of homeless people and others who incited conflict.

San Francisco’s action, which he visited early on, was more “joyful,” with a zero-tolerance policy for drinking and littering, he noted.

“I think it [Occupy Oakland] needed to be removed, but it could have been done in a different way,” he said, with more outreach from city leaders and public health officials.

Oakland city officials, however, insist they tried to work cooperatively with the camp and got nowhere. They were planning a news conference for later in the day to discuss police actions.

Something to celebrate: Proud father Florante Galura holds a cake marking the significance of his daughter's birth

11:43 PM on 30th October 2011

Tiny and innocent, little Danica May Camacho
peers out at the world just moments after her birth at a hospital in the
Philippines.

Wearing a hat to keep the heat from escaping
through her head, she nestles against her mother’s skin as her proud parents
look on.

However, Danica’s birth is not only
significant to mother Camille and father Florante. She is one of the world’s
symbolic seven billionth occupants.

Room for one more? Tiny Danica Camacho - the world's 7 billionth resident - is cuddled by her mother Camille as they are wheeled out of the delivery room
Room for one more? Tiny Danica Camacho – the world’s 7 billionth resident – is cuddled by her mother Camille as they are wheeled out of the delivery roomThe Philippines, ranked 12th as the most
populated country in the world, joined the rest of the world as it welcomed its
symbolic seven billionth baby in a simple ceremony at the hospital.

Danica was born two minutes before midnight
and arrived to a celebratory cheer at the packed Government-run Jose Fabella
Hospital in Manila.

Weighing 5lbs 5oz, Danica May Camacho was
delivered amid an explosion of media flash bulbs in the delivery room at
Manila’s Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.

Mother Camille Dalura said: ‘She looks so
lovely. I can’t believe she is the world’s seventh billion.’

The baby is the second child for Camille and
her partner Florante, who quietly stood in a corner wearing a white hospital
gown as television crews and photographers crowded to get a shot of his
daughter.

The parents and the baby were met by top
United Nations officials in the Philippines, who presented the child with a
small cake.

What's all the fuss about? Danica is oblivious to the significance of her arrival

There were also gifts from local benefactors
including a scholarship grant for the child’s study, and a livelihood package to
enable the parents to start a general store.

Also on hand to witness the landmark event was
12-year-old Lorrize Mae Guevarra, who was declared the world’s symbolic six
billionth baby in 1999 and is now in the sixth grade.

Guevarra said: ‘I am very happy to see this
cute baby. I hope like me she will grow up to become healthy and well loved by
everyone.’

The child is one of several in countries
around the world being declared a symbolic seven billionth human.The United
Nations has declared October 31 as Seven Billion day – the date when the
globe’s population is estimated to reach seven billion.

It was hoped she would arrive at exactly
midnight, but she was delivered two minutes early.

Health Secretary Enrique Ona said the arrival
of the world’s seven billionth baby also presented the Philippines with an
opportunity to assess population related issues.

According to the UN Population Fund (UNFPA)
State of the World Population Report, the Philippines is the 12th most populous
country in the world with 94.9 million people.

China continues to have the biggest share of
the population at 1.35 billion, followed by India at 1.24 billion.

Guessing game: In reality, the world's population might not reach seven billion for another eight years
Still growing strong: Experts expect the world population to continue expanding until the middle of the century
Still growing strong: Experts expect the world population to continue expanding until the middle of the century

The report noted that in many parts of the
developing world, where population growth outpaces economic growth, reproductive
health care remains a crucial issue.

UNFPA representative Ugochi Daniels said that
while the Philippine population remains young, with people under 25 making up 54
percent of the total, they needed to be taught proper ‘life skills’ and about
sexual issues.

She said that while women were having fewer
children globally, the overall population continued to go up.

‘While our world of seven billion represents a
complex picture of trends and paradoxes, there are some essential global truths
we observe,’ she said. ‘Conversely, there is no one global population
outlook.’

The UNFPA said 10 percent of Filipino girls
aged 15 to 19 have started child bearing, with many of the young also
increasingly vulnerable to HIV.

There is scepticism over the accuracy of the
UN’s Seven Billion Day estimation, with critics saying there is no way of truly
telling when the population of the human race hits the landmark.

In the past century, the world’s population
has increased fourfold. And it has only been 12 years since the planet marked
six billion people.

Many independent demographers say the UN has
jumped the gun. Early 2013 is their best guess, but it could be as late as 2019
that the landmark is reached.

THE NSW Government has confirmed action has been taken against a
senior legal officer who gave a “boob-apron” to a colleague as a birthday joke.

The scandal in a D-cup was first revealed by The Sunday Telegraph
after Nigel Hadgkiss, executive director of the Office of the Director of Public
Prosecutions, gave a novelty apron featuring a pair of fake breasts to a
workmate who had described himself as a “big girl at heart”.

The gift was an on-going joke between the pair, but one guest at the work
function party took offence and complained. Mr Hadgkiss is a former federal
policeman and holds one of the highest positions in the DPP.

When contacted by The Sunday Telegraph in August, both the
Attorney-General’s office and the Department of Public Prosecutions refused to
confirm the incident or comment.

It is only now that Attorney-General Greg Smith has confirmed a complaint had
been received about Mr Hadgkiss, after it was raised in parliament by Shadow
Attorney-General Paul Lynch after The Sunday Telegraph article.

Mr Lynch asked if any action had been taken against Mr Hadgkiss in relation
to his employment, to which the Attorney General said the matter had been
finalised.

“Yes. The complaint was dealt with in accordance with the relevant policies
and procedures of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and
appropriate action has been taken,” said the short response, dated October
17.

Asked to elaborate on the matter during an Estimates Hearing on Wednesday, Mr
Smith confirmed that Mr Hadgkiss was cautioned about the matter.

“My understanding is that the director counselled him,” Mr Smith said.

The recipient of the now notorious apron, who is understood to be a male
colleague, had previously described himself in a conversation with Mr Hadgkiss
as a “big girl at heart”, prompting Mr Hadgkiss to follow up with the gag.

The move backfired, however, prompting a review of the matter by Director of
Public Prosecutions, Lloyd Babb, SC.

The aprons are usually sold for about $20 and feature a large pair of fake
breasts.

Mr Hadgkiss refused to discuss the incident when contacted on Wednesday,
saying: “No comment” before politely hanging up the phone.

Slain Diggers

Captain Bryce Duffy, Corporal Ashley Birt and Lance Corporal Luke Gavin.

 

THEY were brother, husband and father – and all three were killed by
a man they thought was their ally.

The slain Aussies from Mentoring Task Force Three were among ten Diggers
mowed down by a rogue Afghan National Army soldier on Saturday.

They were Captain Bryce Duffy, 26, Lance Corporal Luke Gavin, 27, and
Corporal Ashley Birt, 22.

The seven other Diggers targeted in the attack are being airlifted to Germany
and are expected to pull through, although doctors warn that one of soldiers is
still in a life-threatening condition.

“This is of course a tragedy for our nation, a tragedy for those three
families and a terrible reminder to the other 29 families who have seen their
sons, husbands, brothers killed during our time in Afghanistan,” Defence
Minister Stephen Smith said.

Captain Duffy, who was married but with no children, was born in Sydney and
served with the 4th Field Regiment, Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery in
Townsville.

Selfless and devoted

The Australian Defence Force said he was a well-liked and well-respected
officer. “His peers remember him as an officer who maintained the highest
possible personal standards. His selfless dedication to duty was demonstrated by
the fact that he had volunteered for his second tour of duty in Afghanistan at
short notice, after a fellow officer was wounded in action,” it said in a
statement.

Lance Corporal Gavin, also from Sydney, was married with three children. “His
subordinate soldiers were motivated by his professionalism, mateship and
outstanding specialist skills. He was also known for being a devoted husband and
father.”

Like Lance Corporal Gavin, Corporal Birt, a sapper from Nambour, Queensland,
was on his first tour of Afghanistan. “He was a great mate to his many
colleagues and well liked by all. He was a larrikin and someone who was always
smiling. His mates remember him as a great bloke, a distinguished sportsman and
an excellent soldier,” the ADF said.

Gympie MP Dave Gibson met the family of one of the soldiers yesterday and was
told his younger brother was also serving in Afghanistan.

“There isn’t really any way we can understand what they’re feeling but it’s a
time in which the family are drawn together,” he said.

To protect the family’s privacy, Mr Gibson said he would not identify the
soldier.

The deaths have hit Digger morale hard, with the mood inside the
multinational base in Tarin Kowt one of anger, sadness and confusion.

“It’s just so sad for these blokes. They didn’t die fighting,” one soldier told Fairfax newspapers.

The gunman also killed an Afghan interpreter and wounded three other
Afghanis. He was shot dead by two Australians, one of whom had been wounded.

Shot from behind

Australian commanders had been trying to keep mentoring troops away from
trouble spots and had believed the patrol base at Shah Wali Kot in northern
Kandahar province to be safe.

That confidence was shattered at 8.30am on Saturday, Afghan time, as troops
from the Afghan National Army’s 6th Kandakm finished their weekly parade.

The soldiers from 2nd Royal Australian Regiment were standing with
interpreters when machine-gun fire hit them from behind.

“A member of the ANA – we think it’s a junior officer or a senior
non-commissioned officer – came up with a machinegun, came up to within 20
metres or 15 metres of our soldiers, and opened fire on them. There were 12
Australians in the group and all but two were struck,” MTF-3 commander Lt-Col
Chris Smith said.

The surviving Diggers, including some of the wounded, returned fire and the
Afghan soldier was killed. One of the wounded, a medic, paused only to stop his
bleeding before rushing to the rescue of his comrades.

At that stage, with their platoon commander dead, the Diggers faced the very
real possibility that the other Afghan soldiers could start shooting or that
Taliban forces were outside the base and about to attack.

The alarm went out and a strong Australian mobile patrol operating nearby in
armoured vehicles swept down into the base to back up the Australians and to
reinforce security.

Dodged the vetting process

The wounded were treated at the scene and flown out in helicopters to
coalition medical facilities, but the most seriously wounded Australian did not
survive.

No one on the ground or in in military intelligence knows if the gunman was
working for the Taliban but sources told Fairfax “they’re leaning more towards the guy
just brain-snapped”.

What they know about the gunman is this: his name was Darwish, he was a
resident of Kabul and had been in the Afghan army for about three years. It is
unlikely he underwent the rigorous vetting process imposed on new recruits.

The commander of the Afghan National Army’s 4th Brigade, Brigadier General
Mohammed Zafar Khan, ordered all of the 6th Kandak personnel to be disarmed and
confined to their barracks.

Disarming the ANA soldiers defused the situation and removed an issue that
could have made a bad situation worse.

“They could stop looking over their shoulders and get on with the job,” a source told The
Australian
(behind a paywall)
.

“For the guys to do the job they do, there needs to be a lot of trust. That
trust has taken a bit of a beating, and it will take time to build it up
again.”

Grant Hackett

October 31, 2011      6:15AM

POLICE are investigating an incident at the Melbourne home of Olympic legend Grant Hackett.

Officers were called to the Channel 9 star’s apartment in Southbank after Hackett hosted the Westpac marquee at Flemington on Derby Day.

It is believed police entered the family home in the early hours of Sunday morning to find the apartment in total disarray, including a grand piano overturned.

Up to eight police cars were on the scene to deal with the matter.

Hackett was not seen yesterday. But his wife Candice Alley was spied leaving the building with one of the couple’s two children.

The blonde singer was believed to be at home during the incident but was keeping mum yesterday when asked about it.

Earlier in the day, a happy-looking Alley posted a picture of herself in her Derby Day finery, tweeting that the couple had spent “a fabulous day” together at Flemington.

Celebrity DJ Ruby Rose tweeted that Hackett had been a great host, and several other onlookers commented the highly spirited ex-swimmer had spent a fair bit of time on the dance floor later in the day.

After the races Rose, Hackett and Alley headed for the after-party at The Den at Crown’s The Atlantic.

One neighbour, who didn’t want to be named, said building management was trying to resolve the matter.

The couple married in 2007 after Hackett uprooted his life on the Gold Coast to move to Melbourne to be near Alley. Their twins, Jagger and Charlize, were born two years later.

Since retiring from swimming, the triple Olympic gold medallist has worked as a TV presenter for channels Seven and Nine.

Hackett joined Nine News Melbourne as the weekend sport presenter in 2008, replacing Heath O’Loughlin.

But Hackett failed to win over viewers and was axed from the news team in late 2009.

He now works as a presenter on Wide World of Sports and is expected to be part of Nine’s coverage of the Olympic Games.

Rebecca Leigh Crimmins

October 31, 2011     11:19AM

A BARMAID who threw a wet tampon at a McDonald’s worker “for a laugh”
says the drunken prank has ruined her life.

Rebecca Leigh Crimmins, who pleaded guilty to common assault in the Noosa
Magistrates Court, said she had “pretty much lost everything” since the
tampon-tossing incident in the early hours of September 25.

She accused some people of over-reacting to the incident.

The court last week heard a drunk Ms Crimmins had dabbed a McDonald’s
worker’s hand with a wet tampon, before throwing it at him, when she went
through the restaurant’s drive-through at Noosaville.

The confessed “27-year-old hooligan” said the tampon was only wet with
cordial.

The promotional model, who was sacked from the Noosa Surf Life Saving Club
over the incident, said the fast-food staff had “made a mountain out of a
molehill”.

“When the police came around, I thought ‘you’ve got to be kidding’,” she
said.

But victim Luke Clareburt said he was shocked by the incident. “I didn’t know
what was on the tampon,” he said.

“She deserves everything she gets. She’s got no one to blame but
herself.”

Ms Crimmins, originally from Rockhampton, said people needed to “lighten
up”.

“All my friends think it’s hilarious,” she said. “My parents have been
answering the phone saying ‘hello, tampon tossers’.

“I have fun but I’m not a bad person.”

Title holder ... Brynne Edelsten.

October 31, 2011      12:42AM

AS THE Spring Racing Carnival cranks up for tomorrow’s Melbourne Cup you can  bet Brynne Edelsten will be busy in her gilded penthouse today  armed with a hot glue gun and hatching a cunning plan: to take Flemington by  storm.

Edelsten is desperate to defend her title as the wearer of the ”Frock  which  stops a nation”, but this year competition is stiff as the  Brynne-Bot  discovered at Saturday’s Derby Day.

Edelsten attempted to pull off her own Liz Hurley moment,  dressed up in a black, cream and gold taffeta confection which  showcased her  ample decolletage, or rather the   ”continental shelf”  she has become famous  for.

<iframe id=”dcAd-1-3″ src=”http://ad-apac.doubleclick.net/adi/onl.smh.lands/lands/privatesydney;cat1=privatesydney;ctype=article;cat=lands;pos=3;sz=300×250;tile=3;ord=8.5228589E7?&#8221; width=’300′ height=’250′ scrolling=”no” marginheight=”0″ marginwidth=”0″ allowtransparency=”true” frameborder=”0″> < /ifraThe ensemble was held together – barely – with safety pins, just as  Hurley  did many years before, though incongruously no one noticed –  well, except for  PS. With the real Liz Hurley in town with her  fiance, Shane  Warne,  and tipped to make an appearance at Flemington tomorrow, the  fashion  stakes will be high, but as Edelsten’s publicist promised ”she’s   bringing out the big guns for the Cup”, which got PS wondering: how  much  bigger could those guns possibly be?

Meanwhile, a colourful assortment of characters have helped liven things up  in Melbourne, including racing stalwart Eileen Bond, who is  once again trackside, this year being joined by her grandson, Jeremy, and grand- daughter Emerald, a   corporate lawyer in Perth working in the mining sector.

With their private jet, James and Erica  Packer have been entertaining an ever- growing posse of cronies  (especially  since Qantas was grounded), with a long list of pals hoping to bum  a  ride back to Sydney. After the Derby the Packer posse, including Karl  Stefanovic and Matthew Csidei , indulged their singing  talents – or lack thereof – at Erica’s annual karaoke party inside Warne’s new  bar, Club 23.

It was a hotly-held ticket for the lucky few who had received an email  from  Erica herself in the days leading up to Saturday, and by all  accounts it went  off like the exploding gas fireballs that line the  Yarra outside Packer’s Crown  complex.

from:  http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/private-sydney/the-frocks-that-stop-a-nation-20111030-1mqc4.html#ixzz1cLeJE8FN

——————————————————————————————-

Each letter of the first name rules 9 year of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Brynne Edelsten

2 (B is the 2nd letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) + 25 (y is the 25th letter of the alphabet) = 45

So the number 45 rules her ages zero to twenty-seven.

45 = Intense.  Magnetic.

Bogota's mayor-elect Gustavo Petro casting his vote
30 October 2011     22:13 ET

A former left-wing rebel has been
elected mayor of the capital, Bogota, as Colombians vote in local elections.

Gustavo Petro, 51, a former guerrilla with the defunct M-19 movement, won 32%
of the vote after running a “zero corruption” campaign.

His main opponent Enrique Penalosa, the favoured candidate of former
President Alvaro Uribe, conceded after polling 25%.

During a violent campaign, 41 candidates were killed nationwide.

Mr Petro said his win showed that reconciliation was possible in Colombia,
which is plagued by violence from left-wing guerrillas and right wing death
squads. Thousands die each year in Colombia’s armed conflicts, which are fuelled
by cash from the illegal narcotics trade.

“Bogota has chosen as its mayor a son of the peace process of 1989,” Mr Petro
said in his acceptance speech. “Bogota is saying yes to reconciliation, yes to
peace.”

He was given amnesty after serving two years in jail for his involvement in
the M-19 group.

Five years ago, his denunciations as a senator of close ties between national
and regional politicians and right-wing death squads spurred the so-called
“parapolitics” scandal that has landed more than 60 politicians in prison for
crimes ranging from criminal conspiracy to murder.

Last year, Mr Petro helped uncover a bid-rigging scandal in Bogota that has
landed its previous elected mayor, Samuel Moreno, in jail facing corruption
charges.

The voting in the capital was part of nationwide regional and municipal
elections, with 32 governorships and more than 1,100 mayoral and municipal
council post being contested.

Authorities and electoral watchdog groups reported relatively few voting
irregularities.

Nidar Singh Nihang with weapons

29 October 2011      19:16 ET

A former factory worker from the
British Midlands may be the last living master of the centuries-old Sikh
battlefield art of shastar vidya. The father of four is now engaged in a
full-time search for a successor.

The basis of shastar vidya, the “science of weapons” is a five-step movement:
advance on the opponent, hit his flank, deflect incoming blows, take a
commanding position and strike.

It was developed by Sikhs in the 17th Century as the young religion came
under attack from hostile Muslim and Hindu neighbours, and has been known to a
dwindling band since the British forced Sikhs to give up arms in the 19th
Century.

Nidar Singh, a 44-year-old former food packer from Wolverhampton, is now
thought to be the only remaining master. He has many students, but shastar vidya
takes years to learn and a commitment in time and energy that doesn’t suit
modern lifestyles.

“I’ve travelled all over India and I have spoken to many elders, this is
basically a last-ditch attempt to flush someone out because if I die with it, it
is all gone.”

Nidar Singh Nihang
Mr Singh is searching India and Pakistan for a young successor

He would be overjoyed to discover an existing master somewhere in India, or
to find a talented young student determined to dedicate his life to the art.

Until he was 17 years old, he knew little of his Sikh heritage. His family
were not religious – he wore his hair short and dressed like any British
teenager. He was a keen wrestler, but knew nothing of martial arts.

He spent his childhood between Punjab and Wolverhampton and it was on one of
these trips to see an aunt in India that he met Baba Mohinder Singh, the old man
who was to become his master.

Already in his early 80s, Baba Mohinder Singh had abandoned life as a hermit
in a final effort to find someone to pass on his knowledge to.

“When he saw my physique he looked at me, even though I was clean-shaven and
he asked me: ‘Do you want to learn how to fight’,” recalls Nidar Singh. “I
couldn’t say no.”

On his first day of training, the frail old man handed him a stick and
instructed Mr Singh to hit him. When he tried, the master threw him around like
a rag doll.

“He was a frail old man chucking me about and I couldn’t touch him,” he says.
“That definitely impressed me.”

Open-minded

Mr Singh spent the next 11 years on his aunt’s farm, milking the buffalos in
the morning and spending every day training with his master.

In 1995 he returned to Britain to get married and took work packing food in a
factory. He began to teach shastar vidya and immersed himself in research on
early Sikh military history.

Soon he had enough interest from students to go into teaching full-time. He
now travels around the UK to teach classes and to Canada and Germany where eager
students have asked him to share his knowledge.

History of shastar vidya

Sikh weapon

  • When Sikh leader Guru Arjan Dev was murdered by the Mughal emperor in 1606,
    his son Guru Hargobind set out to militarise the Sikh people
  • Men were instructed to carry arms – including the kara (iron bracelet) and
    kirpan (small blade) still worn by orthodox Sikhs today
  • Hair was worn long and wrapped around the head to protect the skull
  • Hargobind also set up schools to train an elite warrior caste called the
    Akali Nihang, the immortal crocodiles, which developed secret fighting
    techniques
  • They also adopted a unique belief system with the martial art as a main
    tenet of their faith

“The people who are here are open-minded,” he says. “I
have Muslims and Christians here as well as Sikhs.”

But even his most advanced pupils have only recently reached the stage where
they can fight him with weapons without getting hurt.

Shastar vidya often gets confused with Gatka, a stick-fighting technique that
was developed during British occupation of Punjab and was widely practised among
Sikh soldiers in the British army.

Though it is a highly skilled art it was developed for exhibition rather than
mortal combat. It is much easier to practise in public.

By working to revive a culture and practice that left the mainstream more
than 200 years ago, Mr Singh has come up against a lot of resistance from within
the Sikh community.

He says he received 84 death threats in his first two years as a teacher,
from other Sikh groups who disagree with the ideology of shastar vidya and the
beliefs of the small Nihang sect, which he identifies with.

“It is not just martial technique, there is a lot of oral tradition and
linguistic skills that has to be there as well,” he explains.

Nihangs still maintain some tenets of the Hindu faith, they have three
scriptures rather than one and these extra books contain influences from
Hinduism.

Many Nihangs also eat meat and drink alcohol which orthodox Sikhs disagree
with. Traditionally they also drank bhang, an infusion of cannabis, to get
closer to God.

“Sikhism has gone through several stages of evolution,” says Christopher
Shackle , a former professor of South Asian studies at Soas, University of
London. “When the Nihangs were formed at the end of the 17th Century they were a
very powerful group but they became rather marginalised.”

Akali Nihang soldier
An Akali Nihang soldier in 1865

When the Sikhs established their own kingdom under Maharaja Ranjit Singh, he
realised he needed a modern army to keep the British out, and he hired
ex-Napoleonic officers to train up his soldiers, sidelining the Nihangs.

The Nihangs were further isolated when the British Raj defeated the Sikh
state in 1849 and forced Sikhs to give up arms.

“The British introduced a shoot-to-kill policy,” says weapons collector and
historian Davinder Tool, adding that accounts of British army officers show some
troops fired on any man with a blue turban and a firearm.

“There is a sense that the Nihang’s got left behind by time,” says Mr
Shackle.

Mr Singh spends a lot of time travelling to India and Pakistan researching
the art, searching for descendents of the Akali Nihang and adding to his vast
collection of weapons.

So far he has only met four people who could claim to be masters, now all
dead. The last of these, Ram Singh, whom he met in 1998, died four years
later.

“Nidar Singh is like someone who has walked straight out of the 18th
Century,” says Parmjit Singh, who has worked on several books on Nihang culture
with the master.

“He is like a window into the past.”

He is also still hoping to be a door to the future, opening up the path for
new practitioners of the art to follow.

Anchorage Police Officers search the Millennium Hotel after a fatal shooting at the hotel, Oct. 29, 2011.

October 30th, 2011      08:18 PM

Update: Police  said early this morning that Victor Rodriguez Flores, 45, an ex-employee of the  Millennium Alaskan Hotel, has been charged with first-degree murder. The  shooting victim has been identified as Kerry Fadley, a 55-year-old manager at  the hotel.

Flores had been fired about a week ago, according to a  statement from Police Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz. Other employees witnessed the  shooting and identified him, he said.


A four-hour manhunt ended late Saturday with the arrest of a suspect in a fatal  shooting at the Millennium Alaskan Hotel in Spenard that caused police to lock  down the hotel and close a section of Spenard Road.

The arrest took place near the suspected shooter’s  residence not far from the hotel at about 10:45 p.m, according to a press  release from the police department. The hotel and Spenard Road were re-opened  shortly afterward.

“It appears to be a workplace violence case,” said  Police Sgt. Slawomir Markiewicz. “An employee of the hotel was shot and killed  by another employee who was (fired).”

Markiewicz said the deceased employee was a supervisor  of the suspect, who had been fired recently.

The shooting was reported just after 6:30 p.m. and  reportedly occurred in an employee area of the hotel. The victim died at the  hotel, police said.

Police were notifying the victim’s next of kin late  Saturday and had not yet released a name.

Police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said hotel guests  were asked to remain in their quarters and were being evacuated as police  methodically searched the building room by room.

A hotel manager declined to comment.

Adak resident and Millennium guest Esther Bennett  said hotel employees ushered guests out of the lobby.

“They were pushing people out through the bar,”  Bennett said as she stood with two others waiting to get back in shortly after  10 p.m. “They didn’t say anything, I’ve just been sitting out  here listening.”

Bennett said her trip to the city had been OK until  Saturday night. “I’m not coming back anytime soon,” she said.

During the hotel lockdown, Spenard Road was closed  at Wisconsin Street on one end and International Airport Road at the other.

Officers initially surrounded the hotel on Lake  Spenard and were also searching inside the building.

—————————————————————————————–

A former Millennium Alaskan Hotel waiter accused of shooting his ex-boss to
death at the Spenard hotel Saturday night was arraigned Sunday. Victor Rodriguez
Flores, 45, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Flores, who had been fired from the hotel at 4800 Spenard Rd. nine days ago,
allegedly killed 55-year-old manager Kerry Fadely at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker says Fadely was specifically targeted and that
the attack wasn’t random.

In charging documents Sunday, APD Det. Mark Huelskoetter summarized
witnesses’ accounts of the shooting.

“According to one female employee,
Flores came to the office and asked where Kerry was. That employee told Flores
Kerry would return shortly,” Huelskoetter wrote. “A short time later the same
employee heard Flores swearing at Fadely then say something like, ‘If I’m going
down, then you are all going down.’ Then she heard several gunshots.”

A
maintenance employee of the hotel told detectives he came out of a bathroom and
saw Flores speak with Fadely then hand her a white envelope, but couldn’t hear
what was said.

“Then, Flores pulled out a pistol and asked Fadely, ‘Do
you want some of this?’ and fire two shots,” Huelskoetter wrote. “As the witness
turned to run, he saw Fadely run through the double doors into the kitchen with
Flores right behind her. The witness said he saw Flores fire 3 to 4 more shots
in a downward direction, although he couldn’t see Fadely at that point.”

More than a dozen APD units responded to the hotel at about 6:35 p.m.
Saturday, where officers found Fadely dead. APD’s SWAT team was called to the
scene, sealing the hotel to search for Flores. Other officers in the area
carried automatic weapons and donned ballistic helmets while the search
continued, with hotel guests asked to remain in their rooms and gradually
evacuated as police methodically searched the building room-by-room.

Parker said police also surrounded Flores’ residence in Anchorage, where SWAT
officers took him into custody at about 10:45 p.m. after he had run away from
the hotel.

APD Sgt. Aaron Whitt said officers were called in from Eagle River to help
answer calls related to Saturday’s search, as part of one of the biggest police
responses Whitt has ever seen.

At Flores’ arraignment Sunday, he told the
judge he used to make between $50,000 and $60,000 per year. The court is
considering whether to appoint a public defender for Flores, because he has no
support from family or a marriage — and is now unemployed.

In an interview after Flores’ arraignment Deborah Harris, Fadely’s partner of
14 years, said she couldn’t explain Saturday’s shooting.

“I don’t know how that happens,” Harris said, crying as she spoke. “You know,
I saw her two hours before she goes to work, she just went to work — this is
irrational that we get to this point.”

She had particularly harsh words for Flores.

“Do you wake up in the morning and go, ‘I’m going to kill my ex-boss ‘cause
she fired me?’” Harris asked. “Like, really, is that what we do? Is that how bad
we are? That’s — come on.”

Love and marriage: Eva Amurri and Kyle Martino, pictured last year in LA, married today in Charleston, Carolina

3:04 PM on 30th October 2011

There aren’t many roles that the talented
Susan Sarandon hasn’t tried her deft hand at, but today was her most special
incarnation yet.

The 65-year-old played host at her daughter Eva Amurri’s wedding to former MLS soccer player Kyle Martino in Charleston, South Carolina.

She was joined by former partner, Tim Robbins,
53 , who raised Eva, now 26 , alongside his two children with Susan, Jack, 22,
and Miles, 19.

Sarandon, also called upon another old friend
to make the day special as Dead Man Walking inspiration, Sister Helen Prejean,
officiated.

According to People.com, the ceremony was the
apogee of a weekend of festivities which included ‘a scavenger hunt, a cocktail
party, a casual oyster roast and barbeque rehearsal dinner.’

Chip off the old block: Susan and Eva at the Emmy Awards last year Chip off the old block: Susan and Eva at the Emmy Awards last year

Sarandon and Robbins, who split in 2009 after
21 years together, are to make a speech tonight to be followed by a black-tie
celebration of dinner and dancing and guests toasted with Perrier Jouet
champagne.

The pair, who became engaged in December,
chose the historic city because the groom’s parents live there.

And the sophisticated affair was in direct
contrast to the invitations sent out for Amurri’s bachelorette party, which
featured a scantily-clad picture of the bride-to-be in revealing heart motif
knickers.

The star, who is the product of Sarandon’s
relationship with film director Franco Amurri posted the revealing advert on her website inviting
friends and revellers to the bash at the end of September.

It features her in a pair of sheer white
panties, complete with black heart design and a bra with black lace up detail.

The party took place at LAVO nightclub at the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino venue in Las Vegas.

Eva was shooting a lingerie session for Maxim
magazine when Kyle, a former MLS soccer
player, visited her at the
shoot.

They became engaged the next day, with the
actress announcing her delight via Twitter.

‘What a week: I became a cartoon character,
did a Maxim shoot, and got engaged! Lol. Not bad, not bad. Thanks for all the
congrats!!’ she wrote.

Eva has already selected her wedding dress –
choosing a gown by designer Lela
Rose.

‘It’s not a princess dress,’ Eva told People
recently. ‘That’s all I’m saying. It’s very me. I felt like it was already
hanging in my closet.

Eva’s Oscar-winning mother seems to be equally
excited by the forthcoming nuptials, the date of which has yet to be made
public.

‘We want to have fun,’ Susan told People.
‘It’s going to be beautiful and meaningful and not that
difficult.’

Excited: Eva's mother Susan Sarandon, pictured with her daughter at New York Fashion Week, is looking forward to partying at the forthcoming weddingExcited: Eva’s mother Susan Sarandon, pictured with her

Colin Hanks

October 30, 2011

Colin Hanks,
33, breaks out of the good-guy mold as Travis Marshall, who teams with Prof.
James Gellar [Edward James
Olmos
] for a bizarre killing spree in the sixth season of Showtime‘s
“Dexter.” He’s also appeared in the films “Orange County” and “Roswell” as well
as the miniseries “Band of Brothers,” among other roles.Your “Dexter” character, Travis, is pretty intense. He’s like a “Silence
of the Lambs”
villain crossed with a religious zealot. What can you tell us
about him?
Travis is obviously a very lost and confused man that has
fallen — I don’t want to say fallen — who has chosen to [align with]
Prof. Gellar, which is Eddie’s character — and the two of them are obviously
very determined to commit these crimes. But in their minds they’re not crimes.
What they’re doing is trying to bring on the new world, so to
speak.

The apocalypse.

Yeah. They’re essentially trying to
end this world and bring on the new one. So really it’s an interesting dynamic
because unlike some of the other characters — the baddies, if you will — on the
show, which have all been great, these guys are doing it because they genuinely
feel like they’re in the right, whereas the other characters all know they’re
doing bad things, and they get a kick out of it. Whereas these guys come with a
righteous sense of purpose, which is a very, very different place to be coming
from. So it really blurs, in a strange way, the concept of serial killers. At
the end of the day, they’re still incredibly messed-up human
beings.

Indeed, but are we to connect the dots between them and
Dexter, who also is a serial killer with a sense of righteousness?

I think obviously that’s part of the connection the writers are making, that
[showrunner] Scott Buck is making. I look at every villain that they’ve had on
the show to be some sort of reflection of Dexter, and this season Dexter is
going through a bit of a religious phase. His character is growing and asking
questions of himself, not necessarily as a “serial killer” but as a human being,
as a father.

You also played a religious character in “Mad Men” where
you were a priest. Does religion interest you?

Not really. I guess
maybe someone at “Dexter” saw the “Mad Men” stuff and thought, “He can do this.”
To be quite honest, I’m not religious. So for me “Mad Men” was kind of hard for
me to wrap my head around. The “Dexter” stuff is very different because it’s
coming from such a different point of view.

More than anything it was
hard to go to work sometimes, waking up in the morning knowing that I’m going to
have to be in a very dark place for the next 12 hours and I’m going to be
pretending to hurt people and I’m going to be saying some things that are very …
it’s not easy dialogue.

One blogger said you have “the greatest
evil glare of all time.” Have you been working on that or does it come
naturally?

I’m going to say it comes naturally. The aspect of
“Dexter” that’s been so fabulous for me is that it truly has been a chance to do
something totally and completely different from anything else that I’ve done.
Religion theme aside, most of the time I’m in some sort of comedy and I’m a
straight man and it’s really just, let’s wind this guy up and see him explode.
Or I’m just a character that just serves the story, who shouts out the
exposition: “You mean we’re going to fight the FBI?” And with
this I got to flex an entirely different muscle and I got to take all the
preconceived notions that people have of me….

Which are
what?

Super-nice guy, not dangerous, sweet, sincere, the best friend,
really honest — and I got to take those and manipulate it and on the surface
have all of those traits but on the inside I’m really just an emotionally
conflicted, confused, lost individual. And evil. In moments, very, very evil. So
it’s been really fun to mess with the convention. And I’ll be quite honest: I’m
totally looking forward to freaking people out in line at the coffee
place.

Are the assumptions people make about
you really assumptions they make about your America’s sweetheart dad, Tom Hanks?

I think so. Which is not to say people don’t know who I am or are
fans of some of the stuff that I’ve done. But for a majority of people I don’t
have a first name, to which I have to say, “Yes, my name is Colin, nice to meet
you.”

That sounds annoying.

It’s something I’ve come to accept. Depending on my mood that day, it can either not bug me or be a little annoying.

Do you think that a way to distinguish yourself as your own
person is by currying a career that includes being a
hard-core
villain?

I hope so. That would be nice. I have no way of knowing.

Coming from the family you did, did you ever seriously
consider doing anything other than act?

This is a life passage for
everyone. When you’re a kid, you have a gut feeling of what you want to do, and
you get good at it. You get around 14, 15, 16 and you’re rebelling against
everything, and you say, “That’s not what I’m going to do. You don’t know who I
am.” And then you spend an undetermined amount of time eventually coming to the
conclusion that that is really maybe what you want to be doing.

What
did you think you wanted to do doing your rebellious phase?

I didn’t really know. I loved acting since I was a little kid. It was fun. Obviously, I
saw my dad do it, my mother [Samantha Lewes] was also an actress in her younger
days, my stepmom [Rita Wilson], I’m comfortable with the idea of it. It always
seemed like fun, like make-believe, playing with toys. So during my rebellious
period, I thought maybe I’ll go into radio. A little bit related, I guess.
Eventually by the time I got into college and started doing plays I thought, “I
really like this. This is really what I want to do.”

And keep in my mind
my dad didn’t become a huge, huge mega actor until I was halfway through high
school — so right around the time he’s going through his big renaissance is
right when I’m starting to do my high school revolting. And I think deep down I
kind of knew it was going to be harder for me to break out from that. And I
think what I really needed to do more than anything was make sure it was
something I loved doing and that I couldn’t envision myself doing anything else.
I needed to find that and I did.

Former DJ, TV presenter and charity fundraiser Sir Jimmy Savile has died, aged 84.

Savile, who was one of the most famous names on British TV and radio in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, died on Saturday.

Police said they were called to his home in Leeds, but that there was nothing suspicious about his death.

His family programme, Jim’ll Fix It, drew in huge audiences and the programme received 20,000 letters a week at the height of its popularity.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said officers were called to the house in Roundhay at 12:10 BST.

Details of how he died were not yet known, but he was recently in hospital with pneumonia.

His nephew, Roger Foster, said he “passed away quietly in his sleep during the night”.

“Jimmy was a wonderful man. His public face is well-known but we knew him much more as an uncle. He was a very good friend. Jimmy will be sadly missed by very many people.”

Broadcaster Tony Blackburn said Sir Jimmy was embraced by everybody, and was “always just Jimmy Savile”.

“He was just a complete one-off. I think he was a bit of a lonely character as well. In the privacy of his own life I don’t think he had very many friends.”

Tony Blackburn: “Jimmy Savile was a complete one-off”

He added: “I’ve never known anyone quite like him. He was a blunt speaking northerner, but also kind and very respectful.”

Presenter Dave Lee Travis told Sky News: “We are all going to be worse off without him around.”

Prince Charles has also praised Sir Jimmy in a statement released by Clarence House: “The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are saddened to hear of Jimmy Savile’s death and their thoughts are with his family at this time,” it said.

Savile started out as a dance hall DJ in the 1950s, before making his name as a broadcaster on Radio Luxembourg.

He was one of the first DJs on BBC Radio 1 and launched Top of the Pops in 1964.

He also appeared on the music show’s final edition in 2006.

Charity fundraiserHis TV persona included chunky gold jewellery, a huge cigar, his trademark snowy white hair and a number of catch-phrases which were frequently parodied by impressionists such as Mike Yarwood.

Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Savile was conscripted as a Bevin Boy, working in the coal mines during the war.

Away from broadcasting, he was noted for his charity work, running 200 marathons and raising £40m over the years.

Sir Jimmy Savile talks about how he came up with the idea of a disco

He was a volunteer at the hospital and ran more than 200 marathons for various charitable organisations.

Sir Jimmy raised £20m for the creation of the National Spinal Injuries Centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in 1983 after a storm damaged wooden huts which had housed spinal cord injury patients.

A spokeswoman for Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, said Sir Jimmy would be missed by staff and patients, adding: “He was tireless in his attempts to fundraise for the hospital and was integral in the creation of the National Spinal Injuries Centre that we have today.”

Savile was knighted by the Queen in 1990 for his charity work.

Jailed: Stacy Schuler, a former gym teacher, is lead out of the courtroom after being convicted for four years in Lebanon, Ohio for having sex with five students  

7:51 AM on 28th October 2011

A high school teacher was convicted today of having sex with five teenagers after a judge threw out an insanity plea that suggested the pupils took advantage of her.

Stacy Schuler, 33, was sentenced to four years in prison for the encounters with the boys, some of them football players, at her home in Springboro, Ohio from August to December last year.

The gym teacher had plead not guilty by reason of insanity to holding drink and drug fuelled orgies, having threesomes and indulging in sex with one student on her kitchen counter and in the shower.

Schuler, who had been facing decades in prison, cried as she was handcuffed and led out of the courtroom in Lebanon, Ohio. She will be eligible for parole in six months.

The Mason High School students, who were all around 17 at the time, testified that Schuler had been drinking at the time of the encounters and was a willing participant who initiated much of the contact.

The age of sexual consent in Ohio is 16 but it is illegal for a teacher to have sex with students.

The lawyer for Schuler stood by the defence that the teacher was not in a state of mind at the time of the encounters to understand the wrongfulness of what she was doing.

Charlie Rittgers said prosecutors wanted the ex-teacher to be seen as someone with an ‘insatiable appetite for sex, drugs and alcohol who wanted to be passed around’.

Schuler was found guilty on 16 counts of sexual battery and three counts of providing alcohol to a minor, the judge said it would be a ‘magnificent leap’ to believe she didn’t know her actions were wrong.

 
Strain: Schuler's plea of not guilty by insanity was rejected by the judge who found her guilty on 16 counts of sexual batteryStrain: Schuler’s plea of not guilty by insanity was rejected by the judge who found her guilty on 16 counts of sexual battery

Judge Robert Peeler said: ‘This is a noble profession that you have, and I’ve heard a lot of good things about you, but I know that you had the opportunity, as all teachers do, to affect the lives of our children. You crossed a line.’

The former teacher made no comment during the trial and declined to address the judge.

Schuler’s parents sat behind her in court holding hands and showed little emotion throughout the sentencing.

The court was packed with Mason High students but none of the young men involved in the case were present.

Insatiable: The prosecution said the ex-teacher had an appetite for 'sex, drugs and alcohol'Insatiable: The prosecution said the ex-teacher had an appetite for ‘sex, drugs and alcohol’

One student said after the trial that she felt Schuler’s sentence had been ‘harsh’.

However two of the victims’ parents made appeals to the judge.

One father spoke of his teenage son’s depression following the sexual encounters and asked the judge to hand down a sentence to send a message that Schuler’s acts were not acceptable.

Schuler visibly wept in court as another mother said her son turned to Schuler during an extremely low period when his father had cancer.

She said: ‘These young men may appear as if they are tough guys, but in reality, they are truly hurting. As his mother I am devastated. She let him down.’

Testimony from a psychologist for the defence had suggested that Schuler’s medical and physical ailments, combined with her vegan diet and use of alcohol and an antidepressant, impaired her ability to tell right from wrong.

However a psychologist for the prosecution said the use of alcohol did not meet the state standard for an insanity defense and that willingly getting drunk is not a legal defence for a crime.

Two former Mason students had testified that Schuler had devised a plan to enter an insanity plea before she was ever charged.

Other students testified on Schuler’s behalf, hugging her in the courtroom and telling the judge she was a supportive advocate who kept appropriate boundaries. 

Schuler had been a teacher and athletics coach at the school since 2000 before resigning in February after an anonymous tip to the school led to the charges against her.

Teresa Hiett, an assistant Warren County prosecutor, said the first incident happened on August 20 after a Mason-Springboro football scrimmage game involving two students who visited her house.

One of the students told the court he had sex with Schuler on five occasions.

Another student said the teacher made vodka smoothies and they smoked marijuana before she had sex with both 18 year olds.

The boy, now aged 19 and studying at Ohio State University, told how Schuler gave him a massage and then made a pass at him which led to sex.

He told the court: ‘She looked at me and said, “anything you want to do, whatever”. I just kind of looked at her like what?’

The student said after he and his friend had sex with Schuler they all went outside naked to smoke a cigarette.

The other students gave evidence against Schuler who has waived her right to a jury trial.

Outside the courtroom, defence attorney Mr Rittgers told reporters that he had no regret pursuing the insanity defense. He did not say whether he would appeal the verdict.

The community of Grande Prairie, Alta., faces another tough day on Saturday as it marks one week since four of its teens were killed in a highway crash with a driver who is alleged to have been drunk.

All four boys were members of the Warriors football team at Grande Prairie Composite High School, and after a week of mourning, the squad was set to return to the field Saturday morning for its first game since losing them.

“It’s hard to look at the football team in the eyes. There’s nothing there. They’re empty,” said Shelley Judd, whose 15-year-old nephew Zachary survived the crash but is in a medically induced coma 400 kilometres away at an Edmonton hospital.

Sixteen-year-olds Matthew Deller and Vincent Stover and 15-year-olds Walter Borden-Wilkins and Tanner Hildebrand lost their lives last Saturday when their car was struck by a GMC pickup truck as they were driving home from a party just after midnight.

The boys’ funerals on Thursday and Friday were attended by hundreds of family and friends, many of whom wore the orange colours of the Warriors football team.

Thousands of people are expected to turn out for Saturday’s playoff game, at which the teens will be honoured.

3,000 T-shirts

Tyrone Pike volunteered time all week making T-shirts for the game to raise money. The shirts, orange with a large W in the middle for the football team’s name, sell for $10.

Two of the boys' funerals were Thursday and two, including this service for 16-year-old Vincent Stover, were Friday.

“We are working around the clock non-stop. We’ve printed 1,500 T-shirts so far, and we’re looking at printing another 1,500 here,” he said earlier in the week.

“We’ve asked a couple of local businesses to donate some money to help us front the cost of the T-shirts, and then whatever’s left over is going towards the foundation and being split up between the families of the boys that were in the accident.”

The city will hold another public memorial on Sunday.

A 21-year-old Grande Prairie man, Brenden Holubowich, is charged with 11 counts related to the collision, including impaired driving causing death and failure to remain at the scene. He was released on bail and has a court date Monday at the Grande Prairie provincial courthouse.

A Canadian aid worker was shot and another man killed while driving through a suburb of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Francklin Guerrier and the driver were attacked by people on a motorcycle, according to Radio-Canada correspondent in Haiti. The driver was killed.

Guerrier, a Quebec retired lawyer, was shot in the collar bone and is recovering, under police guard, in Trinité hospital, his brother Eric Piérre told Radio-Canada. .

He was travelling in a car with some family members and driver Noel Meriland when at least one assailant on a motorcycle opened fire at 6:30 a.m.Friday local time. Meriland was killed.

Guerrier is on the board of the Montreal-based organization Ayiti Dwa Moun, which means Haiti Human Rights. The organization has been around as a Canadian registered federal corporation since 1993 but hasn’t filed an annual return for the last three years and is facing dissolution.

The motive for the attack is unknown.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the Guerrier family as they recover from this tragic incident,” International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda said in a statement.

“I am glad to hear M. Guerrier is in stable condition. I offer condolences to the family of his friend. Our government is working with consular officials to ensure the family receives support in this time of need.”

 Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 54 to 81 are ruled by the sum of the 7th, 8th, and 9th letters of the name.

Francklin Guerrier

12 (l is the 12th letter of the alphabet) + 9 (i is the 9th letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) = 35

So the number 35 rules his ages fifty-four to eighty-one.

35 = Without warning.  Caught off guard.

Sgt. Janick Gilbert was a search and rescue technician with 424 Transport and Rescue Squadron based in Trenton, Ont.

Oct 29, 2011      9:54 AM ET

A Quebec airman who died during a rescue mission in Nunavut will be honoured Saturday.

Sgt. Janick Gilbert, 34, of Baie-Comeau died outside the Nunavut hamlet of Igloolik Thursday after parachuting into rough and cold arctic waters.

He was trying to rescue a father and son who had been stranded in a boat.

Gilbert’s body is scheduled to arrive at the Canadian Forces Base in Trenton, Ont. Saturday afternoon.

Defence Minister Peter MacKay and Gen. Walt Natynczyk, Chief of Defence Staff, will be on hand to honour Gilbert.

“He will be sorely missed by all within the search and rescue community and everyone in the 8 Wing family,” base spokesperson Lt. Christopher Daniel said in a statement.

“He will be remembered as a devoted husband, exceptional father, and a professional [search and rescue] tech.”

Gilbert’s body was expected to arrive at the base at 3 p.m. local time. A procession was then scheduled to travel from CFB Trenton to Ottawa.

Gilbert’s cause of death has not been released.

The military said he was “unsuccessful” parachuting into the water. The RCMP indicated he was found non-responsive in the water.

He died before a Cormorant helicopter from CFB Gander in Newfoundland arrived to pick up the group, about three hours later.

The two boaters and two other rescuers were taken safely to Igloolik.

Gilbert was a search and rescue technician with the 424 Transport and Rescue Squadron based in Trenton.

Phyllis Reffo

Thursday September 15, 2011 at 2:38PM 

Phyllis Reffo swims in the 100- and 200-yard individual medleys, and the 50 and 100 breaststroke events for Pepperdine.

So what … right? Wrong.

Reffo is 49 years old and is a mother of two.

The former model walked on to the Pepperdine swim team this season, just a few years after her swimming career started when a junior college water polo coach spotted her in the pool. After two years of competing at said junior college — where she earned an associates degree in science — she then applied to Pepperdine and decided to take a shot at making the most of her two years of eligibility remaining.

“It is funny, because I’m older than some of my teammates’ parents,” said Reffo, who plans to major in physical therapy. “I’m just trying to live my life as best as I can every day. I’m not letting my age get in the way.”

File:Jean Quan at Lake Merritt during her Campaign for Mayor.jpg

October 29, 2011

When Jean Quan was an undergraduate, she once sat for 10 hours inside Sproul Hall at the University of California, Berkeley, demanding better treatment for minority students. As a community activist, she helped unionize hospital workers and organized parents in a poor neighborhood of West Oakland.

At another time, Ms. Quan, the mayor of Oakland, might have joined the hundreds of protesters who have camped out near City Hall as part of Occupy Oakland. Instead, she is now a focus of their wrath. Late Thursday night, protesters chased her from a rally, shouting “Go home,” and refusing to let her speak. The protesters were reacting to her decision to shut down the encampment, which led to a night of street violence on Tuesday, with police unleashing tear gas on the demonstrators. Ms. Quan said the area had become unsanitary and unsafe.

“She raided us. People are hurt for no reason,” said Adam Jordan, an Occupy Oakland organizer, alluding to several people who were injured, including an Iraq war veteran who sustained a severe head wound. “She’s the establishment.”

Ms. Quan’s transformation from one of the more progressive mayors in the country into an object of Occupy Oakland’s scorn has left her isolated and weakened politically. Even her closest friends and supporters questioned her judgment. Dan Siegel, Ms. Quan’s legal adviser who has known her since her days at Berkeley, said he briefly considered resigning over the raid.

But instead of giving in, Ms. Quan is trying to win back the support of the protest community she once called her own.

On Friday, hours after she fled the rally, Ms. Quan said she would not resign. She apologized for a second time and sought to align herself with the Occupy movement, which claims to represent the 99 percent who they say are shut out of a political process that caters to corporations.

“Oakland is definitely part of this 99 percent,” Ms. Quan said.

On Thursday, Ms. Quan had reversed herself and allowed the protesters to resettle in Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, despite the fact that Oakland, facing a $76 million budget deficit, spent an estimated $1 million on cleanup costs and police overtime during the Occupy protest, according to finance officials.

Three-dozen tents were spread across the plaza on Friday morning; there were 150 before Tuesday’s raid. Phil Horne, a San Francisco attorney, was handing out yellow leaflets asking people to sign a petition to recall Ms. Quan as mayor. Her actions last week erased her accomplishments as an activist, he said.

Edwin, a 23-year-old office assistant from San Mateo who declined to give his last name out of concern he would lose his job, said he regretted that Ms. Quan had not been allowed to speak to the protesters. But he said he was not sure whether to forgive her.

“I’m willing to give her a second chance because of her history,” he said. “But if she continues to do what she’s been doing the last two days, I think she needs to go.”

Ms. Quan, who got her start in activism as an undergraduate at Berkeley, clearly has a lot of work to do in order to regain her anti-establishment credibility.

At Berkeley, she gained experience working with the Third World Liberation Front, whose efforts on behalf of minority students led to the establishment of the university’s ethnic studies program.

After graduation, Ms. Quan moved to Hong Kong, New York and Los Angeles, working in the labor movement. In 1980, she returned to the Bay Area and led a campaign against the Ku Klux Klan after five anti-Klan protesters were killed in Greensboro, N.C.

In the mid-1980s, Ms. Quan, who by then had two children with her husband, Floyd Huen, helped elect several progressive candidates to the Oakland school board. She then ran herself, and later became school board president before being elected to the City Council.

Mr. Siegel, her legal adviser, said part of her strength as an activist and politician is her tireless approach.

“When Jean runs for office and knocks on doors, the joke that people make is that they’ll vote for her because she won’t leave,” he said. “She’s not afraid when it gets dark, she’s not afraid when there’s an angry dog or if she’s in a sketchy neighborhood. She’s not afraid of a couple of angry people in the plaza.”

Ms. Quan often speaks in short forceful spurts. Since her upset victory last November, which made her the city’s first Asian-American mayor, she has sought to impose a progressive agenda on Oakland, but she has been stymied by polarizing politics, a struggling economy and her city’s 16 percent unemployment rate.

She often clashed with the police, recommending community organizing to offset a police force decimated by budget cuts. On Oct. 11, Chief Anthony Batts abruptly resigned. While he did not blame Ms. Quan directly, he said bureaucracy and micromanaging by city officials had made it impossible for him to do his job.

Long-time allies have encouraged Ms. Quan to embrace Occupy Oakland. Josie Camacho, executive director of the Alameda Labor Council, said she told Ms. Quan: “If we let this movement continue, we will have a lot of pride for stepping out there. And we will have your back. You have to look at things differently.”

Ms. Camacho said it was important to help build the movement, and allow people to stay where they want to stay. “When do you see homeless and students and families come together in a shared space?” she said. “At some point you have to take a risk and at some point you have to take a stand.”

On Thursday, Ms. Quan released a video in which she addressed the protesters directly and emphasized her background as an activist.

“We are a nation in crisis,” she said. “Oakland more than most cities faces budget cuts, unemployment and foreclosures. We are also a Progressive city. And as a long-time civil rights activist and union organizer I want my City to support the movement.”

On Friday, after fleeing from the rally, Ms. Quan decided she would not let up. She continued to court the protesters.

“This is a tough job,” she said. “I wanted to talk to them. I still want to talk to them and we stand ready to talk to them any time.”

Rebeca Arellano has been named the Homecoming King for Patrick Henry High School, and her girlfriend and fellow student Haileigh Adams has been nominated to be the Homecoming Queen. The winner of that will be announced at Saturday’s dance. The two began dating in the sophomore year.

Haileigh said about her girlfriend “She’s really funny and, of course, beautiful, and she’s just perfect to me.” Rebeca said about the whole thing that “It is crazy to think that a few years later I am being nominated as king.”

The two have been getting an abundance of support from their family, friends and pretty much everyone. The couple have said that they had not planned to run. Rebeca stated that “Any of the guys are not happy about me running because I’m taking a guy’s place, but if there was any other way to do it and have two lesbians that are a couple win, I would.”

According to 10News out of San Diego, California:

Their nominations have made a difference for many students at Patrick Henry High School.

“The fact that other people are feeling more confident about themselves or feeling like they might have a chance at doing this, it’s opening doors,” Haileigh said.

It may be opening doors and minds.

A fellow student who spoke up did not know the girls personally, but knew of them. She stated that “I’m actually bi [sexual] myself. It makes me think that you can be more open and stuff, and the way the school’s reacting to it, like, positively … It makes you more comfortable in the school, and in your environment.”

Haileigh said that “We don’t know if we’re going to win. We’re not sure, but if we do, it would be an amazing gesture to the LGBT community and everything that we stand for.”

PHOTO: Lynn Tilton owns more companies than any woman in the world, and is one of the few self-made female billionaires.

Oct. 29, 2011

With her designer tight jeans and perfectly-styled platinum blonde hair, Lynn Tilton would have fit right in at a swank New York nightclub or an exclusive runway show.

Instead, a recent day found her at a pulp and paper factory in Gorham, N.H., with a paintbrush in hand, helping workers with a little bit of maintenance.

“A woman’s work is never done,” she said.

Tilton knows a little something about work. Through her private equity firm, Patriarch Partners, Tilton specializes in buying struggling companies — including the New Hampshire paper factory — and then breathing new life into them and reaping the profit on her investment.

She says her personal mission is saving jobs and to the workers at the factory, she’s a hero for preserving theirs.

But for would-be entrepreneurs — especially women — she may be a hero for another reason: Her business successes have made her a billionaire and one of the few self-made, female billionaires in the world.

At 52 years old, Tilton is an unlikely combination of fashionista and Warren Buffett. She says she owns 75 companies — more than any woman in America and probably the world.

Together, these companies generate over $8 billion a year in revenues, according to financial statements Tilton provided.

For an interview with ABC News’ Barbara Walters, Tilton wore Gucci boots, a Gucci miniskirt and Cartier jewelry. She said her look consciously reflected her identity.

“I do it on purpose, to some extent. That’s sort of my ‘dust to diamonds’ persona. You know, I like to say that we buy companies when they’re dust, and we turn them to diamond,” she said.

That drive to succeed was instilled in her at an early age by her parents, she said. Growing up in Teaneck, N.J. she was very close to her father, who taught high school math.

When Tilton was a sophomore at Yale University, her father passed away.

“It was devastating. … I came from a very strong-knit family built on love and devotion. And what I saw [was] that the loss of a parent, or a loss of a working parent, can tear a family apart,” Tilton said.

Tilton took on the burden of caring for her mother and teenage brother.

“I needed to be grown up immediately,” she said. “I wanted to heal everybody.”

Making money was a clear way to satisfy this desire. But the stress of trying to do it ended her marriage, she said. At 23, divorced and with an infant daughter, she started working on Wall Street, putting in fifteen-hour days.

“My twenties were so difficult and so dark that I only remember shadowy details,” she said. “Because I lived in fear every day. … Fear of not being able to keep my job and take care of my child. Fear of being a failure.”

Tilton spent 19 years on Wall Street, often clashing with its macho culture. She sued Merrill Lynch for sexual harassment, settling out of court.

“I was so beaten down by that experience that I wasn’t sure I’d be able to stand up again and get back out into the world,” she said.

Tilton had saved $10 million from her Wall Street earnings. Upon leaving, she sent a final Christmas card to some of her clients.

“For many years I had men asking me on the phone each day what I was wearing and what color my underwear was,” she said. “And so I sent out a Christmas card with me in a red lace sort of teddy, and red cowboy boots and a Santa hat, wishing them a Merry Christmas.”

Tilton’s plan was to spend the rest of her life far from Wall Street. But then she had a dream in which her father told her retiring wasn’t what he had in mind for her, she said.

What was her calling? “Really, to come back and try to help people,” she said. “To ‘save’ people from what I suffered when we lost a working parent … the crumbling of a family. That for every job I could save, that was a family that would be kept together. … And so I have tried to — at least in later life — make my father proud.”

In Dec. 2000, Tilton launched Patriarch Partners, a New York-based private-equity firm named in honor of her father.  In the past 11 years, it has turned around dozens of failing companies, among them Spiegel Catalogues, Rand McNally and Stila Cosmetics.

The firm has investments in 14 different industries including helicopters and trucks, she said, adding, “The only thing they have in common is that nobody else wanted them.”

Tilton takes a personal interest in the daily operations of many of her companies.

She said she spends a million dollars per year criss-crossing the country. Recently a typical week could have included stops in New York, Arkansas, Los Angeles, Georgia and Phoenix, where MD Helicopters — which Tilton brought out of bankruptcy and into a long-term contract for military helicopters — is based.

Tilton’s intense focus on work leaves little time for relaxation at her four homes: one on Lake Como, in Italy; one on a beach in Florida; one in Phoenix; and one in New Jersey. She has not remarried and lives alone.

“I’m not extravagant for someone of my wealth,” Tilton said. “I love beautiful jewelry. … I have a great wardrobe.”

Tilton has four closets full of shoes — 500 pairs, all categorized with photos.

Tilton has no apologies for her reputation as a ruthless boss.

“To lead so many [employees], one has to be difficult and tough at times,” she said.

She even admits she is particularly tough on men.

“I think I’m tough on everybody,” she said. “Perhaps more difficult on men. … I speak the truth. And that means that sometimes people don’t want to hear exactly where they stand. … The truth is cold and hard, but it’s the first point on the path to hope and salvation.”

When her management teams enter the room for a meeting with her, she said, she hugs them on the way in and out. In between, she gives them “truth and harsh speak.”

What drives Tilton more than anything these days, she said, is jobs. “We must create jobs in this country, or we will have violence in the streets of America,” she said.

Tilton said she was not surprised when, over the last few weeks, Occupy Wall Street gained acceptance all over the country for its demonstrations against the rich.

“But there’s only one way to put people back to work in this country, and that’s industrial policy. Pick your industries. If you want to sell it in America, you need to make it in America,” she said.

When asked what advice she would give a young person who wanted to be a billionaire, Tilton said, “Don’t do what you do for the money. Whatever path you choose, do it because it makes your heart beat fast. Because success comes from following your passion.”

Patrick Dean Lowrance

10:07 PM     Oct. 28, 2011

Authorities took a man into custody late Friday night who they identified as the suspect who was the subject of a huge manhunt earlier in the day after an officer was shot at in Greenville.

Authorities identified him as Patrick Dean Lowrance, 25, of Duncan.

He was being taken to a hospital with a wounded shoulder, Major Shea Smith of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said. No other details of the arrest were available late Friday night.

No warrants had been issued in connection with the manhunt, authorities said, and the man was arrested on outstanding warrants in earlier cases.

Lowrance was wanted by police on a number of charges before today’s incident, including the attempted armed robbery of a Wendy’s restaurant in Greenville, according to incident reports and warrants.

Earlier in the day, helicopters had circled Mauldin Road and K-9 units scoured the woods below for the suspect.

Ten schools were put on lockdown, and main thoroughfares were blocked off in a long stretch of Mauldin Road that seemed strange and empty. Sheriff’s deputies looked grim as they aimed assault rifles into the distance while dogs tracked a scent that weaved through trees and dense undergrowth.

They were looking for a man who Greenville Police Chief Terri Wilfong said ambushed an officer and opened fire in a breezeway of Berkley Pointe Apartments at 500 Wenwood Road. The officer wasn’t injured in the shooting, nor was anyone else.

The manhunt took place along the streets of one of Greenville’s affluent neighborhoods, with police officers camped out next to houses with impeccably manicured lawns in an area that many prominent Greenville figures call home.

The incident began when officers arrived at the apartment complex to track down the driver of a silver Yukon who fled when police tried to pull him over at approximately 9:40 a.m. for an improper tag on Laurens Road near Interstate 85, authorities said.

“It was only going to be a traffic violation, nothing more,” Wilfong said.

Shots were fired at officers, and one returned fire, according to the chief, who described it as “a gun battle.”

The man fled into the woods, launching an exhaustive manhunt that had the Highway Patrol, SWAT teams, SLED and other local authorities searching the apartment complex, nearby homes, underneath bridges and a wooded area that Wilfong said spans three miles.

Police said they believe the gunman was armed with an unknown amount of ammunition and weapons and posed a serious threat to the community.

“They’re alarmed, as they should be when you have somebody who tried to kill a police officer and now is running loose,” Wilfong said. “We have to be very very careful.”

Michael Rosemond was washing clothes at a laundromat on White Horse Road when news reports of a gunman on the run came on television. Fearing for his safety, Rosemond grabbed his still-wet laundry and tried to drive home but met a roadblock at Cavalier Drive.

“I was nervous,” he said while watching officers in bullet-proof vests across the street.

Reverse 9-1-1 was used to alert residents in the Mauldin Road and East Parkins Mill Road area to stay in their homes and lock their doors.

Among the schools that were put on lockdown were Sara Collins Elementary, the Washington Center, Christ Church Episcopal School, Greenville Technical College and St. Joseph’s Catholic School. The lockdown was lifted before 3 p.m.

By then, the search was focused on the wooded area. The hunt was hard on the dogs, which had to take breaks between treks across fallen trees and limbs. K-9 units later lost the scent at Interstate 85.

Investigators now believe the gunman was picked up in a vehicle under Interstate 85 between Mauldin Road and Pleasantburg Drive, said Greenville police spokeswoman Alia Urps.

The Rangers are back in the World Series for the second straight season after losing in five games to the San Francisco Giants last year in their first- ever appearance.

After their second straight AL West title and a franchise-record 96 wins this past season, the Rangers disposed of the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALDS before “Cruz-ing” to a six-game win over the Detroit Tigers in the ALCS, as outfielder Nelson Cruz set the all-time mark for most home runs (six) and RBI (13) in a postseason series on his way to MVP honors.

“Behold, here we are with another opportunity,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “They deserve a ton of credit. They got so much character in that clubhouse, so much drive. And as I said, we are a team, and that’s the way they handle their business — as a team.”

St. Louis, meanwhile, is the National League’s version of the New York Yankees, as they are back in this round for the 18th time in team history following impressive wins over the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS and the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLCS.

Of course, the Cardinals needed all 162 games to even reach the postseason, as they rallied from a 10 1/2 game deficit in late August and secured the wild card spot on the final day with a win over Houston coupled with the Phillies completing a three-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves.

“We thought we had good character, not just good talent,” St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said. “That means you can’t quit and can’t give up. We did get to the end, and a lot of it was our character. This one here has its own mark, because coming from that far back is historic.”

Armed with the best hitter in the game in Albert Pujols, it has been the Cards’ bullpen that has carried them here in October, as St. Louis became the first team to advance in a postseason series without having a starter go more than five innings in any game of its series with the Brewers.

St. Louis last won a World Series back in 2006 and its 10 titles are the most by any NL team.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the matchups at each position:

CATCHER

Tampa manager Joe Maddon dubbed this season the “Year of the Napoli”. Mike Napoli has been a terrific addition to this Rangers club and has hit safely in eight of 10 postseason games and is hitting .316, while providing some quality defense behind the plate.

Widely regarded as the top defensive catcher in the game, Yadier Molina had his best offensive season this past year, hitting .305 with 14 home runs and 65 RBI. He’s hit .279 here in the postseason, but has continued to be a stud behind the plate and will keep the Rangers’ speedsters honest in this series.

FIRST BASE

Michael Young‘s season started with a trade demand, but ended with him being in the discussion for American League MVP, as he was the Rangers’ best player all season long, hitting .338 with 106 RBI. He’s now playing his third position with the team and remains one of the classiest and most underrated players in the game. Mitch Moreland will likely play first base when these games are played in Arlington.

Perhaps playing his final set of games with the Cardinals, Albert Pujols remains the best player in the game. The three-time NL MVP had a down year by his standards, but has been tremendous this postseason and hit .478 against the Brewers with a pair of home runs and eight RBI.

SECOND BASE

Ian Kinsler had a terrific bounce back season after a disappointing 2010. The gritty second baseman hit 32 home runs and scored 121 runs. He’s hit .275 this postseason with nine RBI, while crossing the plate 11 times too.

Skip Schumaker had been the Cards’ everyday second baseman, but suffered a strained oblique muscle in their Game 5 win over the Phillies and was left off the NLCS roster.

Schumaker might be added to the World Series roster, but if he can’t go then Nick Punto will handle the duties, as he did against the Brewers. However, he only had two hits in 15 NLCS at-bats. If Schumaker can’t go and Punto continues to struggle at the plate, don’t be surprised if La Russa goes to Ryan Theriot. Then again if Schumaker can go, Theriot will likely be left off the WS roster.

THIRD BASE

Aside from a three home run effort in the ALDS clincher Adrian Beltre has been quiet at the plate this postseason, going just 10-for-42 (.238) with six RBI. He’s still one of the best defenders at his position in the game, though.

How many Cardinals would you have named before you got to David Freese in picking an NLCS MVP before the series started. Freese was tremendous, though, as he totaled 12 hits with three home runs and nine RBI versus the Brewers. He is hitting .425 this postseason with four homers after batting .297 in the regular season with only 10 home runs.

SHORTSTOP

Last postseason was Elvis Andrus‘ coming out party to the baseball public. This year, though, he’s had a tough go of it at the plate, batting just .205 while being caught stealing twice. He did swipe 37 bases on the season and could be a valuable weapon should he get on base in this series. He’s also an A+ defender.

Rafael Furcal may not possess the same speed or range that he had in his heyday with the Atlanta Braves, but his October experience has proven to be a terrific asset to this Cardinals team. Even though he is only hitting .204 this postseason, he is still one of the better defensive shortstops in the game.

LEFT FIELD

David Murphy has been an invaluable asset to the Rangers, filling in when needed for both Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz this season. He’s hit .391 here in the playoffs with three RBI. Washington also likes to use the defensively- minded Endy Chavez here too.

Matt Holliday appears to be fully healed from a finger injury that cost him the end of the regular season and most of the NLDS. Holliday swatted 22 home runs during the regular season and has hit .375 here in the playoffs with five runs batted in.

CENTER FIELD

Hamilton didn’t quite have the MVP season he had last year, but is still one of the more feared left-handed bats in the game. He’s yet to hit a home run this postseason, but has driven in seven runs.

Jon Jay is another of La Russa’s unheralded stars, as he was a consistent contributor during the season, batting .297 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI.

RIGHT FIELD

Cruz was bothered for a lot of the regular season by hamstring injuries, but has caught fire here in the playoffs. He put on a record-setting performance in the ALCS, belting six home runs and 13 RBI to help oust the Tigers.

Lance Berkman turned out to be one of the best free agent signings of last offseason, as he earned NL Comeback Player of the Year honors after batting.301 with 31 homers and 94 runs batted in this season. He’s only hitting .237 here in October, though, and had just two RBI in the series win over the Brewers.

DESIGNATED HITTER

Young will slide back to his DH role at the start of this series. However, Washington could go with Murphy and leave Young at first for the beginning of this set since Moreland has just two hits in 19 postseason at-bats.

Allen Craig hit .315 for the Cardinals this past season with 11 home runs and 40 RBI in 75 games. He hasn’t hit much this postseason (.222) but La Russa will not hesitate to insert him into the DH role when the series shifts to Rangers Ballpark.

STARTING PITCHING

The Rangers lost a big piece of their starting rotation last offseason when Cliff Lee bolted as a free agent. Left-hander C.J. Wilson did an admirable job in assuming the role as staff ace and won a career-best 16 games, while earning his first-ever trip to the All-Star Game.

He’s been atrocious in the playoffs, though, losing two of his three starts and failing to get out of the fifth in the other. Wilson has allowed 14 runs in 15 2/3 innings (8.04 ERA) and has walked eight batters in that span.

But he hasn’t been alone.

Lefties Derek Holland and Matt Harrison and righty Colby Lewis were downright awful against the Tigers, as the group as a whole combined for an ERA of 6.59 in the ALCS. They also own just one quality start in the 10 games they have played in the playoffs.

St. Louis’ starting staff hasn’t been much better, as the Cardinals became the first team to win a postseason series when their starters failed to go more than five innings in any of the six games.

The exception to the rule is righty Chris Carpenter, who is the best starter in the series. A former NL Cy Young Award winner, Carpenter, of course, outdueled Roy Halladay in a decisive fifth game to get the Cards to the NLCS, and beat the Brewers in his only NLCS start, albeit a five-inning, three run performance.

BULLPEN

The Rangers strengthened their bullpen at the trade deadline, acquiring right- handers Mike Adams and Koji Uehara. However, it has been a starter from this season who has dominated in the bullpen here in October for the Rangers.

Right-hander Alexi Ogando, who won 13 games and earned a trip to the All-Star Game in his first year as a full-time starter this season, has been exceptional out of the bullpen in the postseason, allowing just a run and four hits, while striking out 12 in 10 1/3 innings of work.

Ogando picked up two wins in the series against the Tigers, as Rangers starters C.J. Wilson, Colby Lewis, Derek Holland and Matt Harrison combined for a 6.59 ERA in the ALCS. The rotation also has just one quality start in 10 postseason games.

With Uehara (33.75 ERA) struggling, Ogando was called upon time and time again to help set the bridge to Adams and closer Neftali Feliz, who has surrendered just one run in the postseason.

St. Louis’ bullpen, which ranked 21st in the majors in the regular season with a 3.95 ERA, pitched in just over 54 percent of the team’s innings — the fifth-highest percentage ever for an LCS — and contributed a 1.58 ERA. La Russa also broke his own NLCS record by making 28 pitching changes.

The bullpen was spearheaded by a pair of mid-season acquisitions in lefty Mark Rzepczynski and Octavio Dotel, who along with righty Edwin Jackson came over from Toronto as part of the Colby Rasmus deal.

Closer Jason Motte, the fifth such pitcher to be used in that role, has also found his rhythm, as he converted eight of nine saves in September and has saved four games in the playoffs without allowing a run in eight innings.

BENCH

Outfielder Craig Gentry will be used as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement in late game situations. Moreland will also offer some pop off the bench when the games are in St. Louis.

It’s kind of veiled as to who is a starter and who isn’t with some of the Cardinals, as La Russa can’t help himself with the mixing and the matching. When not being used as a DH, though, Craig will be his top bat off the bench with the versatile Theriot finding himself some at bats as well, especially if Punto continues to struggle and Schumaker can’t go.

MANAGERS

Tony La Russa is one of two managers to win World Series championships in both leagues. He is third all-time in managerial victories and with another postseason win he will tie Atlanta’s Bobby Cox for the second most all-time. This is also the third St. Louis team he has taken to the World Series in the last eight seasons. He may drive you crazy with all his little moves, but at the end of the day La Russa is one of the best managers to ever manage a Major League Baseball game.

Washington has his team back in the World Series for the second straight season and with a better team than the one that lost in five games last year to the San Francisco Giants. Players love playing for him and he has made all the right moves here in October. Being in last year’s Fall Classic will certainly help, as Washington won’t get overwhelmed in the moment.

Oct 28, 2011      4:07 AM PT

RCMP have confirmed that the pilot of a plane that crashed on a busy street near the Vancouver International Airport on Thursday afternoon has died.

The pilot, Luc Fortin, 44, from North Vancouver, was one of nine people pulled from the burning wreckage by passersby and firefighters minutes after the crash.

“Despite all possible medical efforts, he was pronounced dead at Vancouver General Hospital about five hours later, at 9:10 p.m.,” said a statement released by the B.C. Coroners office on Friday morning.

All seven passengers on the plane and the two crew members were taken to hospital. Two people remained in critical condition, four were in stable condition and two others were discharged overnight, officials with Vancouver Coastal Health said on Friday morning.

On Friday afternoon, RCMP confirmed that two passengers in a car that was hit by the plane were treated at the scene of the crash.

Oil indicator light came on

The Beechcraft King Air 100, operated by Northern Thunderbird Air, crashed Thursday afternoon after developing a problem shortly after it took off for Kelowna.

On Friday morning Transportation Safety Board spokesman Bill Yearwood said the pilot reported he had an oil indicator light, so he requested to land.

 
The plane turned around about 15 minutes into the flight. On its approach, the aircraft banked sharply left and crashed 900 metres short of the runway on Richmond’s Russ Baker Way, hitting a lamp post and a car, said Yearwood

Yearwood said the plane went nose down at the time of the crash, but it appear the propellers were moving at impact.

In a recording of a conversation between the pilot and air traffic controllers, the pilot sounds calm and is overheard turning down an offer for emergency services to be on scene.

“It sounded as though it was not critical at the first sign of the problem,” Yearwood said. “And obviously it turned into something pretty tragic.”

The burned-out wreckage of the aircraft was removed from the roadway overnight and traffic in the area had returned to normal as of 4:30 a.m. PT, the RCMP said on Friday.

The cockpit voice recorder was in good shape and had already been sent to Ottawa for analysis, and the air traffic control tapes were also being used in the investigation, he said.

Black smoke, intense heat

After the crash, some people left their cars in the middle of the road and ran to the fiery crash to pull out the passengers and carry them away from the burning plane.

Steve Baran, who works for Canada Post at the airport, said he helped get people out of the flaming wreck.

“I pulled the nose cone down and one after another we just pulled passengers out real quick,” said Baran.

‘Everything’s good,’ pilot said

Excerpts of radio communication between air traffic control and a pilot of Flight 204:

4:08 p.m. PT: Traffic controllers tell crew of Flight 204 they are “No. 1 for Runway 26,” and ask to confirm if pilot “doesn’t need equipment or help” on the runway. Pilot calmly responds, “Negative, everything’s good here at the moment.”

4:09 p.m.: Air traffic control clears pilot to land on Runway 26. Pilot calmly acknowledges with, “Cleared to land, 204.”

4:11 p.m.: A loud burst of static is heard on the recording.

4:11 p.m.: Controller declares an aircraft has “pulled short” and “the runway is closed for the time being.”

4:12 p.m.: Other aircraft are advised to “hold your position, we have an emergency.”

“Then I noticed there was no white shirt like a pilot shirt. Then the brigade from YVR shows up and starts spraying the aircraft and very quickly subdued it, and then I saw them working on the windshield of the aircraft trying to get the pilots out,” he said.

Hundreds of other people saw the crash, including Nikoli Jensen, who was walking home when the plane came down.

“The plane was on fire. I was full of adrenaline and I had to jump over the ditch to be safe,” said Jensen.

Chris Yuen was cycling home at the time.

“I got out of the way as quickly as I could. It was on fire and it was really hot,” he said.

Peter Johal captured footage of the burning plane as it slid along the road. He said the heat was intense as people made their way to the fiery plane.

“There were people, some Good Samaritans, they went right up to the fuselage and pulled passengers out,” Johal said. “Taking the risk, not even knowing if that plane is going to blow up even more.”

John Lovelace rushed to the scene when he saw the smoke. He said there was a “terrific amount” of black smoke billowing out of the plane.

“The responders only had a brief time to get the passengers out of there and the crew out of there, and they did a great job,” Lovelace told CBC News.

“When I got there, everyone was out at that point — and I got there probably 3½ to four minutes after the crash.”

No sign of problems

Russ Baker Way and Gilbert Road, Richmond, B.C.

Plane crash site

Lovelace, a pilot, said it looked to him as if the pilot was probably “very very close” to making a landing.

“So something catastrophically went wrong on that very very last 30 seconds of the flight,” said Lovelace, who had no information on the investigation and was basing his comments on his observation of the crash site.

Bill Hess, the general manager of Northern Thunderbird Air, offered few details about the two-person crew, except to say that they were experienced and that the 41-year-old aircraft had no known mechanical problems.

“I want to know what happened,” Hess said. “It just doesn’t make any sense.”

In 2005, two of the airline’s pilots died when they crashed a similar plane into a mountain. Hess said considering the airline flies into remote locations, its safety record is excellent.

“This was to be a routine flight,” said Malcolm Brodie, the mayor of Richmond. “And it ended up in such a tragic manner. However, we are hoping for a complete recovery of everybody involved, and a very speedy recovery, and that is uppermost in our mind.”

Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs, seen here in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, in 2010, now faces murder charges.

12:58 PM EST     Friday October 28, 2011

It didn’t take long for Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs to make an impression on his soldiers.

Gibbs, the new leader of 3rd Platoon, part of the Army’s 5th Stryker Brigade, had served a previous tour in Iraq and another in Afghanistan, and at 6 feet 4 inches and 220 pounds, towered over most of the platoon members.

Gibbs took over the platoon, stationed in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, in November, 2009. It was a low point for the group: A massive roadside bomb had injured their previous leader and left the team rattled. Gibbs wasn’t rattled though.

And, as several of his fellow soldiers would later testify, Gibbs promised his men they would have a chance to exact revenge on the “savages,” referring to the Afghan civilian population they were meant to protect.

Nearly two years later, Gibbs, 26, faces a military court martial on Friday for numerous charges, including the murder of three Afghan civilians.

He is the highest ranking soldier charged in what prosecutors say was a rogue “kill squad” that allegedly targeted Afghan civilians and made the deaths look like casualties of Taliban counterattacks.

He has also been charged with removing body parts from his alleged victims, such as teeth and fingers, to keep as souvenirs; planting “drop weapons” to fake attacks on soldiers; and intimidating several of his own unit members from speaking out against the unit’s alleged murder plots and rampant drug use.

After his May 2010 arrest in Afghanistan, Gibbs showed investigators a tattoo on his lower left leg depicting crossed pistols and five skulls. He told investigators the skulls were a way to keep track of his kills in both Iraq and Afghanistan, according to investigative interview notes shown to CNN.

Gibbs has pleaded not guilty. His attorney Phillip Stackhouse did not respond to CNN’s requests for comment. Stackhouse said in a preliminary hearing this summer that Gibbs acted lawfully and that other soldiers who have testified against him were unreliable witnesses.

Gibbs, a Billings, Montana, native who is married with a young son, faces life in a military prison. His trial is expected to last a week.

Twelve soldiers from the Army’s 5th Stryker Brigade have been charged in the case, including five with murder. Three of the soldiers charged with murder — Spc. Adam Winfield, Pvt. Jeremy Morlock, and Pfc. Andrew Holmes — have pleaded guilty in exchange for their testimony. Spc. Michael Wagnon has pleaded not guilty to a single charge of murder, and awaits court martial.

Several of the soldiers charged in the case documented the alleged murders through unsanctioned photographs of the bodies. In one of the photos, soldiers hold up a dead man’s head and pose alongside the corpse, like a hunting trophy.

In March, these photos were obtained and published by German publication Der Spiegel and Rolling Stone magazine, generating comparisons to the Abu Ghraib scandal, and causing the Army to issue an apology.

Prosecutors have portrayed Gibbs as the kill squad’s alleged ringleader. But according to testimony in the court martials of other soldiers, he didn’t have to push many of the soldiers very hard to take part in the killings which he referred to as “scenarios.”

“It wasn’t a completely new conversation,” Pvt. Jeremy Morlock testified during a July hearing. “It wasn’t far-fetched. Rolling around our minds I guess.”

Getting away with murder

Gibbs openly discussed how easy it would be to kill Afghan civilians and then make them appear as if they were insurgents, other soldiers have testified. They said they thought Gibbs was joking.

Pvt. Jeremy Morlock, left, and Pfc. Andrew Holmes, right, have both pleaded guilty to murder charges.
Pvt. Jeremy Morlock, left, and Pfc. Andrew Holmes, right, have both pleaded guilty to murder charges.

Morlock said the alleged “kill squad” soldiers carried out the executions spur of the moment.

“There was never anything planned,” he testified. “Like this date or this time. We found an opportunity.”

Video: Morlock details killing to investigator

The first “opportunity,” Morlock testified, came in January 2010 during a patrol of a village called La Mohammad Kalay. Morlock told investigators that he and another soldier, Pfc. Andrew Holmes, spotted a teenage farmer named Gul Mudin alone in a field. They beckoned him closer.

“I could see his hands were empty,” Holmes testified. “He didn’t have a weapon.”

Morlock testified he then threw a grenade and ordered Holmes to open fire. The blast ripped the man apart. Morlock testified that the grenade was “off the books” — one that couldn’t be traced back to him. It was, he said, given to him by Sgt. Gibbs.

As Mudin lay dying, Morlock and Holmes later testified, they told fellow soldiers the Afghan farmer had tried to attack them with the grenade. Against military regulations, the men posed for photographs with their “kill.”

Both Morlock and Holmes pleaded guilty as part of separate plea deals with prosecutors. Morlock is serving a 24-year sentence for killing Mudin, and two other unarmed Afghan men, and Holmes was sentenced to seven years in military prison.

Holmes’ mother: Where was the Army?

Morlock testified that he boasted about the shooting. Soon, word spread about the alleged “kill squad” among their fellow soldiers on base and even among some family members back home.

“People in my platoon … can get away with murder,” Spc. Adam Winfield wrote his father on Facebook on February 14, 2010. “Everyone pretty much knows it was staged.”

Chris Winfield was stunned when he read his son’s message. He tried to report his son’s account and even, he said, called Joint Base Lewis-McChord where the division is based.

He said his warnings were not heeded.

Adam Winfield testified that he later told his father that he was afraid for his own life and not to seek any more scrutiny for the unit’s alleged activities.

‘They were not posing any threat to us’

In February 2010, the squad went on a mission to a village called Kari Kheyl. There, Gibbs, Morlock and Spc. Michael Wagnon entered the hut of man a named Marach Agha. They ordered Agha outside and then, according to Morlock, Gibbs turned to the other two soldiers.

“‘Were we okay to go ahead and shoot this guy?'” Gibbs asked the soldiers, according to Morlock’s testimony. “We said ‘yeah.'”

Spc. Adam Winfield testified he was afraid of Sgt. Gibbs and his easy talk of covering up murders in a war zone.
Spc. Adam Winfield testified he was afraid of Sgt. Gibbs and his easy talk of covering up murders in a war zone.

Gibbs first fired a contraband AK-47 into a wall, Morlock said, to simulate enemy fire. Then with his M4 rifle, Gibbs shot Agha, Morlock testified. Morlock said he and Wagnon also fired rounds to make it appear as if the soldiers had been attacked first.

Wagnon is charged with Agha’s killing and has pleaded not guilty.

In March 2010, while on patrol, Gibbs spotted two Afghan men who he said were carrying a rocket-propelled grenade launcher. But what the men held was actually a shovel, Staff Sgt. Robert G. Stevens, a medic who was also on the patrol, later testified.

“They were not posing any threat to us,” Stevens said. Gibbs ordered the soldiers to shoot them, according to Stevens. The medic told the court he intentionally shot 75 yards away from the Afghans, who fled.

“Sgt. Gibbs said we needed to work on our accuracy,” Stevens testified, “Because it did not appear that we hit anyone.”

As part of a plea deal, Stevens was sentenced to nine months in prison for that incident and for faking an insurgent attack on a nighttime Army vehicle convoy with a grenade.

After he threw the grenade, Stevens testified, soldiers in the convoy fired at nearby Afghan huts. Stevens said he did not believe any Afghans were hit. None of the soldiers in the convoy were injured by explosion.

Combat decorations awarded to the soldiers were later rescinded after investigators discovered Stevens had thrown the grenade.

Stevens testified that Sgt. Gibbs gave him the grenade hidden in a sock. Also in the sock, Stevens testified, was a human finger.

In May 2010, Gibbs, Morlock and Winfield were among soldiers on a patrol in a village called Qualaday. In the three months since writing his father on Facebook, Winfield had shifted from wanting to expose Gibbs to trying to get into the sergeant’s good graces.

Winfield was afraid of his sergeant, he would later testify, and his easy talk of covering up murders in a war zone.

In Qualaday, Winfield testified, the three men singled out a man named Mullah Allah Dad, the local cleric, and led him away from the compound where he lived with his wife and children. Winfield said Gibbs ordered the man to kneel in a ditch.

“I had an idea that Sgt. Gibbs was looking for a kill,” Winfield told the court. Then, with Winfield and Morlock shielded behind a low wall, Winfield said Gibbs threw a grenade at Allah Dad. The explosion, he said, ripped the cleric apart.

Morlock and Winfield next opened fire to simulate a firefight and then the soldiers planted a grenade near the man, Winfield testified.

Depressed over his role in the incident, Winfield said he grew afraid that Gibbs might want to silence him. While walking across base to talk with a chaplain, Winfield said Gibbs suddenly intercepted him.

“Sgt. Gibbs reminded me I shouldn’t be talking about things I shouldn’t be talking about,” Winfield testified.

Winfield said Gibbs warned him that he could kill Winfield and make it look like an accident.

Meanwhile Gibbs’ behavior was becoming more outlandish, other soldiers said. According to the soldiers who testified at preliminary hearings in Gibbs’ case, he showed off fingers and teeth he had removed from corpses and discussed throwing candy onto roads.

The sweets would draw children who they could then run over, he allegedly theorized.

‘Kill squad’ unravels

The unraveling of the alleged “kill squad” came about not from targeting Afghans but after prosecutors said Gibbs organized an attack on a fellow soldier.

Three days after prosecutors say Gibbs killed Mullah Allah Dad, he and six other soldiers confronted Pfc. Justin Stoner. The soldiers were furious at Stoner for ratting them out for abusing drugs.

According to prosecutors, several of the soldiers used Stoner’s room to smoke hashish they bought from Afghan translators. Stoner, according to prosecutors, was afraid he would shoulder all the blame for the drug abuse and complained to superiors

The soldiers began to beat Stoner, prosecutors charged. After the alleged stomp down, according to prosecutors, Gibbs showed Stoner fingers he allegedly cut off the corpses of dead Afghan men

The alleged threat backfired though and Stoner soon was talking about the drug abuse, the beating and killings of civilians to investigators.

Gibbs was arrested in May 2010 in Afghanistan and on Friday, he faces those charges in a military courtroom some 7,000 miles away from the Afghan villages he is accused of terrorizing.

Even though none of the soldiers’ officers have been charged for participating in or knowing about the alleged kill squad, they bear some responsibility for the unit’s actions, Stjepan Mestrovic, a sociology professor at Texas A&M University told CNN in an interview..

The distinction between an enemy and a civilian broke down. They saw everyone out there as an enemy.
Stjepan Mestrovic, sociology professor and defense witness

“There was a focus on body counts and aggression throughout the brigade,” said Mestrovic who testified for Morlock’s defense and was permitted to review documents in the case including a sealed report on what the brigade leadership knew.

Mestrovic described a “dysfunctional command climate” where officers disregarded the military’s declared counterinsurgency mission of engaging and winning support with the local population.

“In this climate there was a ‘kill board,'” Mestrovic said, describing the way in which units were ranked for how many Taliban they had killed. “They had a brigade commander who wanted a high body count, who was constantly preaching to search out and kill the enemy rather than what they mockingly called ‘go and have tea with the village elders.’ ”

But prior to Gibbs’ arrival, the unit hadn’t had any kills, Mestrovic said, and was being pushed to be more aggressive with an enemy that preferred to ambush rather than directly engage them.

The soldiers’ frustration and boredom became a toxic mix, Jeremy Morlock testified. “We lost fellow soldiers to IEDs and lived in fear of being killed by them on a daily basis. … I just wanted to survive and come home in one piece,” Morlock told the court. “I realize now I wasn’t fully prepared for the reality of war as it was being fought in Afghanistan.”

“Soldiers were basically left on their own,” Mestrovic said. “The distinction between an enemy and a civilian broke down. They saw everyone out there as an enemy.”

Sixteen players with the Neepawa Natives junior hockey team were suspended this week for their role in a hazing incident late last month. Head coach Bryant Perrier and Brad Biggers, who resigned as assistant coach on Thursday, were also suspended.

Oct 27, 2011     4:02 PM CT

A Manitoba junior hockey coach who has denied involvement in an alleged hazing incident has resigned from the team.

Brad Biggers, an assistant coach with the Neepawa Natives, confirmed to CBC News that he has stepped down from the team.

“Yes I did resign,” Biggers said via text message late Thursday. “Its [sic] time for me to move on with a better opportunity.”

He declined to comment further on his resignation or what his next opportunity will be.

Earlier on Thursday, Biggers said he believes he was made a scapegoat in the hazing incident, for which he and the team’s head coach were suspended this week by the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

Sixteen Natives players were also suspended for their role in the incident, including the team captain and three assistant captains. The incident took place on the week of Sept. 26, according to the league.

The parents of a 15-year-old player told CBC News on Wednesday that their son was forced to dance in the team’s dressing room, then drag around water bottles that were tied to his genitals.

Seven rookies in all were subjected to similar treatment, the parents claimed, adding that players were rated by the older players.

‘I didn’t see anything’

The parents also alleged that Biggers was in the room during the incident, but Biggers denies that he was there.

“I can’t be in the room to supervise them at all times,” he said in an interview earlier Thursday. “I didn’t see anything, and that’s the truth.”

The parents of a 15-year-old hockey player told CBC News on Wednesday that assistant coach Brad Biggers was present for the alleged hazing, a claim Biggers denies.The parents of a 15-year-old hockey player told CBC News on Wednesday that assistant coach Brad Biggers was present for the alleged hazing, a claim Biggers denies. CBCBiggers received one of the harshest penalties from the MJHL, which suspended him for five games. Head coach Bryant Perrier was suspended for two games.

Biggers was suspended for a longer period for “not promptly reporting his knowledge of hazing activity among the players,” the MHJL had stated in a release.

“I just feel that I am being used as the fall guy here,” Biggers said.

“I did absolutely nothing wrong. I was not in the room for any of it. I did not see anything and I just feel they need somebody to blame, so they’re going to blame a 21-year-old first-year coach in the league.”

Biggers declined to comment further on the parents’ allegations.

Station withdraws support

The Natives is a community-owned team, financially supported by many local businesses and the Town of Neepawa.

Some sponsors had told CBC News this week that they would not pull their support of the team as a result of the incident.

But on Thursday afternoon, area radio network CJ Radio announced that it is suspending its coverage of the Neepawa Natives for one year, meaning it will not cover the team’s games, lotteries or other events during that period.

FAQs: Hazing rites

In a letter to the MJHL, CJ Radio said it has informed its programming staff to remove all references to the team from its four stations, including CJ 97.1 FM in Neepawa.

“Given recent actions by the management in Neepawa to deal with the fallout of their hazing incident, we can no longer consider the Natives to be a benefit to Neepawa,” the letter stated in part.

“Our listeners are demanding action not only from the Natives organization but from the league,” the letter adds. “We refuse to let our reputation be tarnished by being associated with the Neepawa Natives organization.”

CJ Radio’s letter said it will reconsider the coverage suspension if the team apologizes to the 15-year-old player, fires or accepts the resignations of Perrier and Biggers and team president Dave McIntosh, and establishes a “career path for all affected rookie players.”

The radio network called on the MJHL’s board of governors to “revoke the franchise held by the Neepawa group.”

Meanwhile, Eric Robinson, Manitoba’s deputy premier and the minister responsible for sport, told reporters it may be time to look at making hazing a Criminal Code offence.

Tory Opposition Leader Hugh McFadyen said he would be receptive to that idea.

Beverly Hills homicides

October 27, 2011        5:03 pm

Beverly Hills police Thursday afternoon identified a victim and a suspect in the city’s first homicide of the year.

A woman who was found dead in her home was identified as Cathy Carrasco-Zanini, 58, who lived in the 100 block of North Hamilton Drive, police said.

James Grzeslo, 54, who lives in Los Angeles, has been arrested in connection with the slaying. He was being held at the Beverly Hills jail in lieu of $1-million bail, the Police Department said in a statement.

Officers found the victim Wednesday afternoon when they arrived at the home to conduct a welfare check.

The homicide was the first in the city since the killing of publicist Ronni Chasen on Nov. 16, 2010. Prior to Tuesday’s slaying, five homicides had been reported since January 2007 in Beverly Hills, according to a Times Homicide database.

5:44 PM EST     Tuesday October 11, 2011

A group of union-backed organizations joined the loosely defined Occupy Wall Street movement again Tuesday, leaving behind the confines of New York’s financial district for the posh neighborhoods that dot Manhattan’s Upper East Side, according to multiple group representatives.

Crowds also swelled in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, where demonstrators waved placards and chanted slogans attacking corporate greed and social inequality.

The union-organized march, meanwhile, took protesters past the homes of well-to-do residents like billionaire David Koch, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch and JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.

Organizations such as UnitedNY, the Strong Economy for All Coalition, the Working Families Party, and New York Communities for Change were accompanied by protesters typically based in Zuccotti Park, a privately owned park in New York’s financial district.

The Upper East Side march was “in support” of the Occupy Wall Street movement, but was not organized by it, said T.J. Helmstetter, a spokesman for Working Families Party, a coalition of New York community and labor groups.

Protesters hopped on the subway, emerging at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street near Central Park, where organizers held a press conference that addressed both New York-centric themes, such as state taxes, and the movement’s broader concerns of social inequity.

“We are the 99%,” the group chanted, a reference to their insistence that most Americans lack the influence in their country’s political and financial affairs enjoyed by the elite 1%.

“I think it’s time that these people realize that people are hurting in this country and it’s time to reform what’s going on in Washington,” said New York resident Lenore Silverstein, who attended Tuesday’s march.

Emily Monroe , a North Carolina college student and marcher, said the city’s wealthiest “are buying billion-dollar apartments and living lavishly, while we are just trying to sustain ourselves.”

“The American dream is no longer possible because these people are stealing from the middle class,” she told CNN Radio.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, meanwhile, said authorities will defend protesters’ right to demonstrate, but he doesn’t appreciate “the bashing of all of the hardworking people who live and work here.”

“Our city depends on the jobs that the financial services industry provides,” Bloomberg said during a news conference in the Bronx.

He added that he didn’t understand what the picketing of wealthy and prominent New Yorkers is intended to achieve.

The mayor’s comments coincided with a state comptroller report released Tuesday that predicts Wall Street could lose an additional 10,000 jobs by the end of next year, raising the total number of jobs lost in the securities industry since 2008 to 32,000.

Earlier, in Boston, 129 protesters were arrested during a similar demonstration Tuesday, mostly for “unlawful assembly and trespassing,” said police spokesman Eddy Chrispin.

The group allegedly blocked traffic and refused to disperse while marching to “areas of the city where they hadn’t been previously,” he said.

Protesters have been occupying Dewey Square Park in downtown Boston, but expanded to the neighboring Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway on Monday night. Protesters were given a 1:30 a.m. deadline to move back to Dewey Square. Those who did not were arrested.

The nationwide Occupy movement has been largely peaceful, though it has led to some skirmishes with police and arrests. It has also stoked fervent public debate, including among politicians. Democrats have generally offered sympathy for protesters’ concerns while several Republicans, among them 2012 presidential candidates Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich, have described the demonstrations as “class warfare.”

The movement shows few signs of slowing down. Rallies and marches have been held in numerous towns and cities in recent days, with many more planned.

That includes a “Call to Action Against Banks” planned for Saturday, which New York’s Occupy Wall Street announced on its Facebook site.

“No longer will banks take our homes. No longer will banks rob students of our future. No longer will banks destroy the environment. No longer will banks fund the misery of war. No longer will banks cause massive unemployment. And no longer will banks create and profit from economic crisis without a struggle,” according to the online message Monday.

It then urges people to “visit your local Bank of America, Wells Fargo or Chase (branches) and let them know, we will not allow business as usual.”

“We. Will. Occupy. Everywhere,” the posting ends.

Protesters affiliated with Occupy Wall Street moved uptown on Tuesday to demonstrate outside of some of New York's richest residents' homes.

Occupy Wall Street is on the move … uptown.

Why uptown? Because that’s where the rich folks live!

Community groups and progressive organizations that have been working with the broader Occupy Wall Street movement marched on Tuesday to the homes of JP Morgan Chase (JPM, Fortune 500) CEO Jamie Dimon, billionaire David Koch, hedge fund honcho John Paulson, Howard Milstein, and News Corp (NWSA, Fortune 500) CEO Rupert Murdoch.

The millionaires and billionaires were targeted for what event organizers called a “willingness to hoard wealth at the expense of the 99%.”

Making their way up 5th Ave., the protesters — relatively modest in number — chanted “we are the 99%” and “banks got bailed out, we got sold out.”

Until Tuesday, protesters had not strayed too far from downtown, where a home base of sorts has been established at Zuccotti Park.

The march was organized by UnitedNY, the Strong Economy for All Coalition, the Working Families Party and New York Communities for Change.

iReport: Occupy Wall Street protests

Protesters converged on 59th street near Central Park, where they started their tour just after noon.

Doug Forand, a spokesman for the groups, said that the protesters did not have a permit for the march, but were not planning on obstructing traffic and would stick to the sidewalks.

Organizers declined to estimate how many protesters would attend. A Facebook event page dedicated to the march had a modest number of confirmed attendees. Just over 300 people said they would attend as of 11 a.m. Tuesday.

On Monday, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg — also a billionaire — said that Occupy Wall Street protesters could stay in Zuccotti Park indefinitely, so long as they obeyed the rules.

“The bottom line is people want to express themselves, and as long as they obey the laws, we’ll allow them to,” Bloomberg said.

October 27, 2011      5:04 am

A tense standoff continued Thursday morning between San Francisco police and Occupy San Francisco protesters.

Police have called on the protesters to leave Justin Herman Plaza, saying the camps pose a threat to public health.

Earlier, protesters and police faced off along the Embarcadero near the Ferry Building as officers clad in riot gear chased people who had gathered in the area.

But as of 4:30 a.m., police had not moved in to arrest protesters, according to the San Jose Mercury News, which described a festive scene with people dancing and chanting at the camp.

Full coverage: Occupy protests

Across the bay in Oakland, several hundred protesters gathered near City Hall at the area where police and Occupy Oakland supporters had a violent confrontation the night before. Several people were injured in that incident and more than 100 others were arrested.

Some protesters tried to board BART trains to the Occupy San Francisco encampment, but they were blocked by police, the Oakland Tribune reported.

Crowds marched to the Oakland Police Department jail. “Free them all! Free them all!” people chanted.

A crowd of Occupy Oakland supporters gathered late Wednesday near 11th Street and Broadway downtown, where they taunted police lined up on the street.

“Look what you did. We came back stronger,” one person yelled, referring to the second gathering in as many nights in the area where violent clashes broke out Tuesday.

Then someone hurled a bottle, prompting cries from the crowd.

“You’re endangering all of us,” a woman yelled.

Occupy Oakland organizers are planning to hold a peaceful vigil Wednesday afternoon for Scott Olsen, 24, a former Marine who was injured during protests Tuesday night.

Olsen served two tours of duty in Iraq and was hit in the head Tuesday by what may have been a tear gas canister, according to Dottie Guy, Bay Area chapter president of Iraq Veterans Against the War. (Warning: The above YouTube video, which shows Olsen, contains profanity at the end.)

Guy said her group saw a Twitter photo of a bleeding Olsen and tracked him down at Oakland’s Highland Hospital, where he is in serious but stable condition. [Updated at 4:05 p.m.: Hospital spokesman Curt Olsen (no relation) said his condition was upgraded Wednesday afternoon from critical to “critical but stable.”]

PHOTOS: Occupy Oakland protest

The group issued a news release saying that he sustained a skull fracture “after being shot in the head with a police projectile.”

Keith Shannon, who deployed with Olsen to Iraq said in a statement: “Scott was marching with the 99% because he felt corporations and banks had too much control over our government, and that they weren’t being held accountable for their role in the economic downturn, which caused so many people to lose their jobs and their homes.”

Interim Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan said Tuesday night that the tear gas and other measures were necessary because some in the crowd were throwing bottles, paint, eggs and other objects at officers.

PHOTO: Blogger Jill Filipovic said she discovered a personal note written on a TSA form in her checked bags that urged her to "get [her] freak on."

Oct. 26, 2011

The Transportation Security Administration announced today it found the officer who penned “highly inappropriate” sex advice on an official form to a passenger after finding a “personal item” in the travelers luggage and has removed the employee from screening duties.

New York blogger Jill Filipovic got an unusual surprise courtesy of the TSA officer on Monday when she opened her bags after a flight to Dublin, Ireland. Inside, on a TSA search notification, someone had scrawled “GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL” in big capital letters — apparently referring to a “personal item” discovered in Filipovic’s luggage.

“TSA quickly launched an investigation and identified the employee responsible. That individual was immediately removed from screening operations and appropriate disciplinary action has been initiated,” the TSA wrote on its blog today. “The handwritten note was highly inappropriate and unprofessional, and TSA has zero tolerance for this type of behavior.”

Filipovic, who tweeted a picture of the note and posted an entry on it the Feministe.us blog, initially said that though she thought the message was “a total violation of privacy… I also just died laughing in my hotel room.”

Later, when speaking to ABC News, Filipovic said that after consideration she found the note “offensive” and said she would be filing a complaint after her travels.

“I hope they do see the complaint, they’ll look into it and remind their staff that going through people’s personal belongings is a responsibility that should be treated with some modicum of professionalism,” Filipovic said Monday.

A spokesperson for the TSA told ABC News Monday it was possible that any number of people who handle the bags could have left the note, but their subsequent investigation appears to have revealed the uniformed culprit.

The TSA said in its blog that it reached out to Filipovic personally to apologize for the “unfortunate incident”. Filipovic was not immediately available for comment on this report and has not tweeted or blogged about the TSA admission.

A pastor who took exception to a kissing lesbian couple he mistook for heterosexuals and had removed from the premises of a Tim Hortons says he now fears for his safety.
Oct 26, 2011      3:20 PM ET
 

A pastor who objected to a kissing lesbian couple he claimed he mistook for heterosexuals at a southwestern Ontario Tim Hortons says he now fears for his safety amid plans for a protest over the couple’s removal from the restaurant.

Assistant pastor Eric Revie of Glad Tidings Community Church in Blenheim said he has received thousands of emails and hundreds of phone calls since news broke that Riley Duckworth and Patricia Pattenden were asked to leave the town’s only Tim Hortons last month after Revie complained to a manager about their behavior on a bench outside the restaurant.

Revie said the emails and phone calls have contained “a lot of hatred.”Patricia Pattenden (left) and Riley Duckworth claim they were asked to leave a Tim Hortons because of their sexual orientation.Patricia Pattenden (left) and Riley Duckworth claim they were asked to leave a Tim Hortons because of their sexual orientation.

Protesters are planning to hold a sit-in Thursday at Blenheim’s only Tim Hortons over the restaurant’s actions.

“I’m a little concerned,” Revie said. “We will have people at the church facility if anyone comes to try and do damage to the building.”

The father of four said he also fears for the safety of his children, and added he has been in constant contact with police.

‘One girl that was straddling the other girl looked like a boy.’— Eric Revie

Revie said the entire incident has been blown out of proportion.

“I’m trying to put this behind me. To me, it wasn’t a gay rights issue,” Revie said. “My understanding was that it was a guy-girl couple. One girl that was straddling the other girl looked like a boy. They are a couple who are apparently in love, that’s fine. Displaying affection in front of young children in a family restaurant was inappropriate to do.”

Revie said the couple’s public display of affection included what he called extreme and passionate kissing involving their tongues. He said one was straddling the other’s lap.

“They had hands on body parts they shouldn’t have,” Revie said. “It disturbed me that anyone would behave that way in a public setting. Whether the couple is gay or whether the couple is straight, it doesn’t matter.”

However, Duckworth and Pattenden said they were outside holding hands and enjoying a coffee when they kissed each other on the cheek — and nothing more.

‘We weren’t doing anything grotesque.’— Riley Duckworth

“We weren’t making out or anything,” Duckworth told CBC Windsor’s Early Shift Tuesday. “We weren’t doing anything grotesque.”

Duckworth said Pattenden’s mother was sharing the bench with the couple so they wouldn’t have dreamed of doing anything offensive.

She said the manager told them their behaviour was unacceptable and that they had five minutes to leave or the police would be called. So they left.

In an email this week to CBC News, Alexandra Cygal, Tim Hortons manager of public affairs said “the guests’ behaviour went beyond public displays of affection and was making other guests feel uncomfortable.”

“The management has apologized to Riley and Patricia and invited them back to their restaurant,” Cygal wrote.

Duckworth said Tuesday she has yet to receive a personal apology from Tim Hortons.

Pastor denies staring down couple

In a media release, Duckworth and Pattenden accused Revie of staring them down and later holding a prayer circle in the parking lot. Revie said neither events happened.

“I’m not against the gay community,” Revie insisted. “I’m not against them as individuals. I don’t agree with their lifestyle, and they know that. I’m trying to understand where they are coming from. I want to reach them through Jesus Christ. I want to see God touch their lives and impact their lives.”

But Revie added he believes the couple violated his rights as a parent.

“I am a protective parent. I believe it’s my right to shield my children and protect from things I deem inappropriate for them to view,” he said. “But I’ve been told I have no rights; to ignore it and leave.”

Yellowknife South MLA Bob McLeod was selected as N.W.T. premier by a secret vote Wednesday. He was acclaimed to his seat in the recent territorial election.

Oct 26, 2011     2:27 PM CT

Yellowknife South MLA Bob McLeod has been selected as the new premier of the Northwest Territories, after MLAs voted in a secret ballot in the legislative assembly in Yellowknife just after noon MT.

The N.W.T. has no political parties, and its legislative assembly is run by consensus government, where the individual MLAs decide which of them becomes premier.

“I’m very humbled by your support for me as premier and I pledge I will do the best job that I can, to work with all of you in the best interest of the people of the Northwest Territories,” McLeod told the assembly.

McLeod was acclaimed in his riding in the Oct. 3 election. Outgoing premier Floyd Roland was also acclaimed prior to his selection as premier.

There have been repeated calls to change the system, and it was a key issue in the recent campaign.

The other candidates for premier were Thebacha MLA Michael Miltenberger and Nahendeh MLA Kevin Menicoche.

During the candidate’s statements prior to voting, McLeod told the assembly he would bring trust and collaboration to the government’s relationships with aboriginal governments and the federal government, and that quick action on devolution is a must.

He added that he wants a balanced approach between the N.W.T. regulatory system and environmental stewardship, while also aiming to diversify the economy, and work on tourism, to safeguard against global recessions.

Miltenberger had told his fellow MLAs it was time to measure work ethic, experience and collectively choose the right leader, pointing out he has served 16 years as an MLA, and 10 years in cabinet. He also said devolution is the answer to demands for control over water, animals, and regulatory processes.

Menicoche said he had proven himself as a team player and consensus builder, and it’s important to have premiers from the small communities to bring their issues to the forefront.

Each MLA was allowed to ask two questions of the candidates for premier.

Issues raised by MLAs included working with aboriginal leaders, addressing the high cost of living, working for consensus with regular MLAs, supplementary health services for seniors, and infrastructure problems in the Northlands neighbourhood of Yellowknife.

Terra Jole Picture

9:53 AM EST     Wednesday October 26, 2011

She stands just over 4 feet tall and prowls the stage rasping Lady Gaga hits.

But come weekends, you won’t find Terra Jolé in the nightclubs partying like a rock star.

“Most short people are at boobie or neck range” with other patrons in the clubs, she explains. “I’m at ass range.”

Such quips are definitive Jolé, a petite chanteuse who is as self-deprecating as she is earnestly committed to her career as “Mini-Gaga,” an impersonator. The singer-actress has found success in combining the uniqueness of being a little person with her determination to become a star.

Who better to portray than Lady Gaga, who is known for her willingness to traffic in the unexpected?

“Gaga is so exciting to me because she’s like an animal,” Jolé says. “As long as you are feeling powerful and emotionally driven for the night … I would say that you are really taking the right steps to becoming ‘mini-Gaga.'”

Not that Jolé doesn’t consider herself a performer in her own right.

Born in San Antonio to an average-sized family, Jolé has dreamed of a career in Hollywood for as long as she can remember. Along with the blond good looks and the big personality one might expect from a Texas rose, Jolé also has achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism.

The pint-sized performer decided early on not to let size stop her.

“I’ve grown up saying, ‘Lord please, all I want to do is become a singer,’ and I believe he has granted that wish,” Jolé says. “The fact that it’s not exactly what I envisioned doesn’t mean that I’m not still envisioning something more grandiose.”

She first came to the public’s attention in 2003 with an appearance on MTV’s “True Life: I’m a Little Person” special, which chronicled her attempts to break into show business.

After performing as a part of mini-KISS for a few years, she had an offer to perform at a party and was surprised that rather than be asked to come as “an Oompa Loompa or something like that,” the client bought into her idea of showing up as “Mini-Britney Spears.”

That launched her career as a Lilliputian look-alike, and soon she was appearing everywhere, from television shows like “CSI: Las Vegas” to touring with rapper T-Pain and Lil Wayne and starring in the Las Vegas show “Little Legends.” On the big screen, Jolé has appeared in films such as “Jackass 3D” and “Tales From Beyond.”

She now has her own company, “Mini-Popstars,” with other small impersonators, including “Mini-Beyonce,” “Mini-Michael Jackson” and “Mini-Vanilli.” And like any big star, she shies away from talking money and fees; she’d much rather focus on how fortunate she feels to be doing what she loves.

“I truly feel like this is so much like the rest of our lives in that if you believe that you can do it, put effort and work into it, then anything is possible,” she says.

Jolé has all the trappings of a celebrity: costume designer, manager, publicist and fans who love to be photographed with her. She has met Britney Spears (who Jolé says couldn’t have been sweeter) and a quick search of the Web turns up a picture of Lindsay Lohan hanging with Jolé in her Mini-Britney gear.

Jolé has spent hours volunteering with the nonprofit organization Little People of America, and she has written into her contracts a clause that says if the word “midget” is used she will walk. Yet there are still some in her community who aren’t thrilled by her career.

“A lot of little people question me and state, ‘It’s so demeaning’ and ‘I can’t believe you would do that; why don’t you just do your own show?’ ” she says. “That’s just like telling any other person why don’t you just become your own famous person and see what kind of press you get. No matter who you are or what you are doing, you are always going to get some negative reaction.”

Working the stage clearly gives Jolé a buzz. She’s meticulous in her preparations. From the makeup to the outrageous costumes, she works hard to achieve the illusion, though she admits she doesn’t look much like Gaga or Britney.

As for the sound, Jolé says she sings most of the songs herself — except for the last number in her act, when she is usually out of breath. Pulling off Gaga’s “Bad Romance” is fairly simple given that the husky tune falls in Jolé’s natural range. Besides, she says, fans get that she is more tribute performer than spot on.

The biggest challenge, she says, is trying to replicate Gaga’s sense of style.

“Everyone remembers the nude latex outfit that she wore at the Grammys when she came out of the egg,” Jolé says. “I couldn’t find sheets of latex, but I found these heavy shower curtains that I thought would work. Bad idea. It was the worst costume malfunction known to man.”

Even though Jolé sometimes gets confused with other little people like Amy Roloff, the mother on TLC’s “Little People, Big World,” the singer says she enjoys a healthy fan base, especially in the gay community.

Could it only be a matter of time before there is a Terra Jolé impersonator? Absolutely, if she has her way.

“This is like the practice round before I actually become the ‘Terra Jolé Show,'” she says, laughing.

Samuel Wurzelbacher, a.k.a. "Joe the Plumber"

October 26th, 2011       7:34 a.m.

Joe the Plumber” made it official Tuesday. He’s running for Congress.

Samuel Wurzelbacher became famous in 2008 after challenging Barack Obama on his economic policies. Now the self-identified Regular Joe wants to represent economically distressed northern Ohio in the House — and he’s bringing a class-based message.

“Americans deserve all kinds of people representing them,” Wurzelbacher said, according to the Associated Press, at an event at Toledo’s famous Tony Packo’s restaurant, best known for its Hungarian-style hot dogs. “Not just an elite ruling class.” (Watch video below.)

Wurzelbacher was adopted as sort of a mascot by the John McCain campaign late in the presidential race — and later became a touring celebrity, often speaking at tea party rallies.

He sounded very much like an anti-establishment candidate in the tea party mold Tuesday, decrying not only what he called onerous federal regulation on businesses, but also free-trade agreements, deals that are unpopular in blue-collar states like Ohio.

“I’m registered as a Republican. I’ll run as a Republican. But by god that doesn’t encompass who I am,” he said.

Ohio’s unemployment rate sits at 9.3% but in the northwest Ohio region where Wurzelbacher lives, it’s hovered above 10% for much of the year.

Wurzelbacher is seeking the 9th District seat that has been held by Democrat Marcy Kaptur since 1983. Because of redistricting, Kaptur will likely face Rep. Dennis Kucinich in the primary, as the district has been extended eastward toward Cleveland.

 “When someone loses their job here in the 9th District, it’s a bad statistic for the politicians,” said Wurzelbacher, 37. “When you and I lose our job, it hurts. It means our kids can’t eat. It means we can’t make our house payments.”

He said on his block alone in Holland, Ohio, four families have “walked away” from their houses after being unable to meet their mortgage payments. “I’m there. I know how it is,” he said. “Politicians in general are not there. They don’t get it.”

He blasted Congress for resorting to patchwork solutions to fix the nation’s deep economic woes. If elected to the House, he said, he wouldn’t support those.

“I’m not the kind of plumber who uses duct tape,” he said.

Rajat Gupta, shown in 2008, has surrendered to the FBI

October 26, 2011      6:48 am

Rajat Gupta, a former Goldman Sachs board member accused by regulators of passing along confidential corporate information, has surrendered to the FBI.

Gupta is in custody, according to the Associated Press. Charges were not immediately disclosed, but the Securities and Exchange Commission in March accused Gupta of giving inside information about Goldman Sachs to his friend and business partner Raj Rajaratnam.

Gupta served on the boards of Procter & Gamble and the parent company for American Airlines but after being hit with the SEC accusations he stepped down from those positions.

Gupta followed with a lawsuit in March in which he complained about the SEC’s decision to go after him in front of an SEC administrative judge instead of in federal court, where other defendants connected to Rajaratnam had been charged. He said he’d been “unfairly and unconstitutionally” singled out.

Gupta in August agreed to drop the lawsuit as the SEC pledged to file any lawsuit over the same matter in federal court.

At the time of the charges, a lawyer for Gupta insisted that his client had done nothing wrong. Gupta’s lawsuit said there was no “plausible reason why Mr. Gupta would have deviated from a lifetime of probity and a career dedicated to safeguarding corporate confidences.”

But, as the AP reported, Gupta’s name featured prominently at the criminal trial earlier this year of Rajaratnam, who received an 11-year prison term, the longest sentence ever for an insider-trading case. But prosecutors had sought 19 to 24 years. The founder of Galleon Group hedge funds was given a lesser sentence in part because of advanced diabetes.

Every Friday, Bree Boyce dreaded her high school gym class. Students had to run a mile under 11 minutes, and those who couldn’t finish in time would have to walk around the track for the rest of the period.

Weighing 234 pounds, Boyce never made it in time.

“There were a few times I tried to run because I was so embarrassed and afraid of what other kids might say. After many failed attempts, I gave up hope,” said Boyce.

Every day, Boyce wore a baggy T-shirt and a pair of faded, size 18 jeans to school. She ducked and dodged anytime someone tried to take her picture. She deflected attention from her weight by cracking jokes.

Five years later and 112 pounds lighter, Boyce is no longer the camera-shy girl hiding inside saggy, shapeless tees.

She struts onstage in body-hugging evening gowns and swimsuits. She embraces the spotlight as the reigning Miss South Carolina. And she has been a guest co-host on “The View,” chatting openly about her weight.

Bree Boyce: Applying weight-loss lessons to all of life

“I had struggled for so many years with my weight,” Boyce said. “So many girls look to beauty queens because they want to be like them and look like them. But my thing is that we’re all unique and we’re all different and not one person is going to look like the next. And somebody might be a healthy size 6, and an unhealthy size 0.”

When she makes public appearances, a tiara rests on her head and a sash drapes over her shoulder. She’ll compete for the Miss America crown in January in Las Vegas.

Her journey from obese teenager to beauty queen isn’t just about shedding excess weight, or going from one extreme to another.

“It’s more about setting a good example for the younger generation,” Boyce said. “If you have a dream, go for it. Don’t let others’ perceptions hold you back.”

Bree Boyce, here turning 16, began seriously trying to lose weight at 17, because of knee problems.

Growing up, Boyce was chubbier than her three older siblings. Although she ate about the same foods as they did, her metabolism seemed different. As the youngest of two girls and two boys, Boyce found support and acceptance in her family and community.

“She was the funny kid,” said Tiffany Olson, Boyce’s older sister. “She had the best personality.”

Her personality carried over to school, where she won over friends with her enthusiasm (she was president of the pep club), and impersonations of celebrities from Cher to Britney Spears.

“I tried to be very outgoing and tried to compensate my weight with my personality,” Boyce said.

When people at school talked about her or teased her, she’d try to be their friend.

“Sometimes I made fun of myself with them,” Boyce said. “It was all trying to cover up and not try to expose myself too much that I was hurting inside about my weight.”

Diet tricks the pros tell their friends

Throughout her childhood, Boyce watched on the sidelines as her older sister competed in beauty pageants. She secretly hoped one day, she would compete.

As a teen, Boyce tried several weight-loss gimmicks, low-carb and starvation diets. But she’d always slip back into her old habits because the hunger returned with such intensity.

Boyce’s health battle is not rare in her home state. In South Carolina, about 31% of the population is considered obese.

“I figured that this was the body I was going to live in, and there was nothing I could do about it,” Boyce said. “I was just so unhappy about the way I looked, but I still continued to eat unhealthy.”

“I would come home from school, sit on the couch for hours, and snack all day long. I would drive to a fast food place, pick up any meal I wanted to, eat it and then go back an hour later, eat it again.”

At age 17, she went to the doctor’s office because of knee problems.

The doctor didn’t mince his words. “You know, this weight has to come off,” he told her. “And if it doesn’t, then your body is not going to take care of you in the long run. And you’re only 17 years old.”

Bree Boyce was crowned Miss South Carolina on July 2. The Miss America Pageant will be January 14, 2012.
Bree Boyce was crowned Miss South Carolina on July 2. The Miss America Pageant will be January 14, 2012.

Boyce realized that he was right.

“I’m 17 years old. I have the whole world in front of me. And it’s up to me and only me to change it. And that’s exactly what I did,” she said.

Surgery is no quick fix for obese teens

She tossed out junk food and set a goal to lose five pounds in one month. And she put one foot in front of the other. She walked around the block because “that’s all I could do. I was so overweight.”

Then the next week, she walked a little farther. After her first month, she lost seven pounds.

When you’re losing weight, where does the fat go?

After losing more pounds, she joined the gym, started dancing in Zumba classes. Then she started jogging.

During her senior year of high school, an adviser at the pep club suggested Boyce try for the title of Miss West Florence, the school’s equivalent of a beauty pageant. At first, Boyce laughed it off.

“I was not thin,” she said. “I was still chubby, losing weight gradually.”

But Boyce gave it a shot.

“I was myself and I won,” beating 38 other girls, she said. “That gave me another confidence boost knowing that I could do what I set my mind to.”

After graduating in 2007, she went to study theater at Francis Marion University. She competed for the local Miss Florence title and began a winning streak in local beauty pageants until she finally won the state crown in July.

Through the years, Boyce had to unlearn a lifetime of bad habits.

“It’s all about learning a process, learning a lifestyle, and so many people think it’s an overnight quick fix. And it absolutely is not. It takes time. It took me three years,” she said.

Boyce, who couldn’t finish a mile in under 11 minutes in high school, can now run that distance in seven minutes. She plans to train for her first marathon once she has time after the Miss America contest.

“You don’t have to be rail thin to think you’re beautiful and want to be Miss America,” she said. “You need to be happy and content with yourself, get your physical activity. That’s what counts the most — not starvation diets and being rail thin.”

Boyce meticulously schedules workouts and meals to prepare for Miss America. On a recent day, she cooked breakfast at home in Florence, scrambling eggs and slicing a grapefruit.

“I block out where am I going to eat, how am I going to eat that day,” she said.

In the pageant world, where a woman’s frame and figure are constantly analyzed, Boyce has heard the critiques: too muscular, too big, not petite enough, not a size 00.

Bree Boyce’s Facebook page

“I love my body,” Boyce said. “I went from 234 pounds to being comfortable and happy and being content with the way I look. Someone says I’m not a 00 — that doesn’t mean I don’t continue to compete for Miss America. We need to give an idealistic role model.”

She said she’d rather be on stage looking the way she does now than looking “sick, frail and thin. That’s not the message that I’m promoting at all.”

PHOTO: Sgt. First Class Kristoffer B. Domeij, 29, was killed on Saturday in Afghanistan's Kandahar Province after accidentally triggering a hidden roadside bomb.

Oct. 25, 2011
 

 

 

An Army Ranger who was on his 14th deployment to a combat zone — and was part of the team that rescued Private Jessica Lynch from her Iraqi captors in 2003 — has been killed in Afghanistan.

Sgt. First Class Kristoffer B. Domeij, 29, was killed Saturday when the assault force he was with triggered a hidden roadside bomb in Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province.

Domeij was part of the force that invaded Iraq and toppled Saddam Hussein. Within weeks of his arrival in Iraq he and his unit took part in one of the best known moments of the war, the rescue of the wounded Lynch from an Iraqi hospital where she was being held captive.

The daring rescue in an Iraqi held section of Baghdad thrilled the country.

Domeij went to serve four deployments in Iraq and another nine stints in Afghanistan. During that time he was awarded two Bronze Stars. His third Bronze Star, earned during his final tour in Afghanistan, will be awarded posthumously, according to the U.S. Army Special Operations Command.

Also killed in Saturday’s blast were First Lieutenant Ashley White, 24, a Cultural Support Team member, and fellow Ranger Private First Class Christopher A. Horns, 20, who was on his first combat deployment.

His battalion commander, Lt. Col. David Hodne, described Domeij as “one of those men who was known by all as much for his humor, enthusiasm, and loyal friendship, as he was for his unparalleled skill and bravery under fire.”

“This was a Ranger you wanted at your side when the chips were down… He is irreplaceable … in our formation … and in our hearts,” Hodne said.

Domeij, who grew up in San Diego, Calif. and Colorado Springs, Colo., and lived in Lacey, Wash., was married and had two young daughters.

Rangers are some of the Army’s most elite special operations forces and have seen almost continual combat in Afghanistan since October 2001 when they were part of the original airborne assault into the country.

Rangers serve three to four month tours of duty that are significantly shorter than the year-long deployments served by soldiers in conventional units. But during those short deployments they see a constant churn of intense combat missions. On average, a Ranger battalion will conduct between 400 to 500 missions during a combat deployment.

Tracy Bailey, a spokesperson for the 75th Ranger Regiment, says Domeij had a combined total of 48 months deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Higher ranking enlisted Rangers, like Domeij, typically have between nine and 12 deployments if they were with the 75th Ranger Regiment prior to or shortly after Sept. 11, 2001. Domeij had enlisted in the Army in July 2001 and joined the 2nd battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment in April 2002.

With his 14 deployments, Domeij becomes the Ranger with the most deployments to date killed in action. Just a year ago this month, fellow Ranger SFC Lance Vogeler was killed in Afghanistan during his 12th deployment, becoming at that time the Ranger with the most deployments killed in action.

Domeij had the distinction of being one of the first Rangers to be qualified as a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC), a position usually reserved for Air Force airmen who serve with ground combat units and call in airstrikes from fighters or bombers flying overhead.

Col. Mark W. Odom, commander of the 75th Ranger Regiment, called Domeij “the prototypical special operations NCO” whose abilities as a JTAC “made him a game changer on the battlefield—an operator who in real terms had the value of an entire strike force on the battlefield.”

Tragic: Local sources identified the victim as 15-year-old Catilyn Abercrombie. Police say she is in a stable condition after surgery

Oct. 25, 2011
 

 

 

A 15-year-old girl who was shot in the neck while eating lunch outside of her Cape Fear high school wrote a note from her hospital bed today to tell her supporters that she loved them.

Catilyn Abercrombie, who was shot by two classmates was described as a “fighter” by her mother, who asked the public for their prayers for her daughter, according to assistant superintendent Teresa Perry. A Facebook page, “Prayers for Catilyn Abercrombie,” had nearly 2,000 fans today.

“She has written that she loves everyone on a piece of a paper,” Perry said, though she didn’t have further details about the girl’s condition.

Abercrombie was the only student injured when the two boys opened fire with rifles around 1 p.m. Monday outside the North Carolina school.

Arrested and charged in the shooting were Ta’von McLaurin, 18, and a 15-year-old, who are suspected of shooting Abecrombie from about 50 feet away with a .22-caliber Daisy rifle, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff”s office. Both men are in the ninth grade at the school, according to Perry.

Parents of other students at the school speculated that the shooting could have been gang-related, but police have denied those reports.

The close call with the gunmen was not Abercrombie’s first near-death experience. According to ABC affiliate WTVD, she survived a deadly car accident at the age of 8 when a drunk driver smashed head-on into the car she was riding in with a family friend. The friend died.

Abercrombie is reported to be in stable condition. Though the hospital won’t release details about Abercrombie’s condition, Paul Pepe, professor and chairman of emergency medicine at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, said her injuries could be very serious.

“Being shot in the neck is always very concering. Depending on the trajectory of the bullet, for example, it could hit numerous vital structures, from the spinal cord itself to major arteries and veins, or the airway. There is risk for anything from paralysis to exsanguination [bleed to death] to asphyxiation,” Pepe said.

The reports of Abercrombie nodding her head to investigators questions and writing notes are good signs, Pepe added.

Witnesses near the shooting said they heard a popping sound and saw Abercrombie fall over. None of the witnesses said that they saw anyone with a gun, but the suspects were identified through surveillance video, police said.

Questions have been raised in the community about how two students were able to bring a rifle into the school undetected after it was stated by investigators that they believe the two attended class today and brought the rifle onto school property.

Cumberland County Sheriff Earl “Moose” Butler told ABC News affiliate WTVD-TV in Raleigh that he believes they hid the weapon in a pant leg or a shirt arm .

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Caitlyn Abercrombie

3 (C is the 3rd letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 9 (i is the 9th letter of the alphabet) = 13

So the number 13 rules her ages zero to twenty-seven.

October 25, 2011       3:50 pm

A Marine from Twentynine Palms has been killed in Afghanistan, the Pentagon announced Tuesday.

Lance Cpl Jason N. Barfield, 22, of Ashford, Ala., was killed Monday in combat in Helmand Province. He was assigned to the 3rd Combat Engineer Battalion, 1st Marine Division, at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms.

Barfield was on his first combat deployment.

“One thing about him is he loved family,” his father, Ray Barfield, told the Dothan Eagle newspaper. “He even had a tattoo with ‘family’ put on his arm. He loved the Lord. He loved going to church. He sang ‘Amazing Grace’ at my [mother’s] funeral three years ago.”

A former executive director of a nonprofit that provides life-skill programs for at-risk youth was charged Tuesday with stealing more than $119,000 from the charity.

Jacqueline Gelfand, 61, allegedly took the money between May 14, 2008, and Nov. 24, 2009, from InsideOUT Writers Inc. She is charged with grand theft.

InsideOUT Writers offers programs for youth affected by the criminal justice system, including creative writing classes for those in Los Angeles County juvenile detention centers and re-entry services for students released from detention.

Gelfand is due in court Tuesday afternoon. Prosecutors have recommended the defendant’s bail be set at $119,568.

If convicted as charged, Gelfand faces a maximum sentence of three years in Los Angeles County Jail.

According to the organization’s website, Gelfand previously worked as executive director of the Daniel Pearl Foundation, supervising international programs in journalism, music, and cross-cultural dialogue.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 8:42 AM

After being sealed for months, the names of the 12 jurors who acquitted Casey Anthony of murder have been released.

The Pinellas County Courthouse released the names Tuesday morning, nearly three months after Chief Judge Belvin Perry ordered the jurors’ identities sealed for longer than usual, because of their involvement in a high-profile case.

The judge called it a “cooling off period,” hoping that time would heal those upset by the controversial not-guilty verdict.

  • We have chosen to publicly post the names of the jurors below. We have made this decision carefully, because we at News 13 believe we are always responsible for giving you complete information.

* Jurors previously came forward voluntarily.

———————————————

After the trial

In the days and weeks after the Casey Anthony trial came to an end, one juror and two alternates talked to the media. Others agreed to talk only if their identities were hidden.

Reports show Juror No. 12 retired from Publix early and fled the state, fearing for her safety.

Jacqueline Fell talked with Juror No. 11, the jury foreman, over the phone. He would not, however, agree to an interview, because he said he did not want to bring any more attention to himself or the other jurors.

A teacher and coach in Pinellas County, the foreman said his life was pretty much back to normal, and he is not scared anymore. He said his students knew he was on a jury, and had a lot of questions.

The foreman said he was a little nervous about the release, and expected phone calls and media out side his door. He said he has already talked with his neighbors, and they are “looking out” for him.

George Thomas Wainwright died from a shark attack while scuba diving off the coast of Western Australia on Saturday.

4:44 PM EST     Sunday October 23, 2011

A 32-year-old Texas man who died in a shark attack Saturday while scuba diving off the coast of Western Australia has been identified.

Sharon Wainwright of Panama City, Florida, on Sunday identified the victim as her son, George Thomas Wainwright.

Police said Saturday the man was scuba diving with two friends near Rottnest Island, a popular tourist destination about 15 miles off the mainland, when the attack occurred. The man’s friends, who were not in the water at the time, noticed an abnormal amount of air bubbles rising to the surface in the area where he was diving, followed by a plume of blood, said police spokesman Michael Wear.

Moments later, the man’s body rose to the surface. Police said he succumbed to his injuries not long after the incident. Following a preliminary review of bite marks on the body, authorities said he is believed to have been killed by a great white shark.

“He was in the water by himself, I believe,” Sgt. Greg True told CNN affiliate Channel Nine. “There’s been some pretty massive injuries inflicted.”

Sharon Wainwright told CNN her family was notified of the incident Saturday morning. Authorities said the man had been living in Western Australia.

Wainright’s relatives expect his body to arrive in Florida in about four days, Sharon Wainwright said.

Saturday’s attack was the second fatal shark attack in the past two weeks near the city of Perth, capital of the state of Western Australia.
