(Dale G.Young/Detroit News via AP)LANSING, Mich. — After listening to the riveting pleas of more than 150 victims, a judge is set to sentence a Michigan doctor who parlayed his reputation and personal charm into years of sexual abuse by molesting Olympic gymnasts and other young female athletes instead of solving their sports injuries.Judge Rosemarie Aquilina will hear from a few more victims and then send Larry Nassar to prison Wednesday, the seventh day of a remarkable hearing that has given the girls, young women and their parents a chance to confront him in court. He faces a minimum prison term of 25 to 40 years but it could go higher.ADVERTISEMENT Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Frankie Lim tempering expectations but optimistic for Perpetual’s campaign OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson MOST READ Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours The judge is likely to be unsparing in her treatment of Nassar.

‘We cannot continue to tolerate abuse’

first_img25 November 2010Violence against women and children was an attack on South Africa’s Bill of Rights and Constitution that could no longer be tolerated, Justice and Constitutional Development Minister Jeff Radebe said at the launch of the 16 Days of Activism campaign in Khayelitsha, Cape Town on Thursday.“I want to tell you today that eradicating violence against women is among our core business as government,” he said, adding that perpetrators should not be given any room to manoeuvre.A recent survey by the government found that women who wanted to report abuse often had to wait three to four hours in police stations repeating the same story to several police officers; that medical examinations were held days later; that doctors rarely treated survivors for HIV or offered medical assistance; and that women faced more risk of being raped when they walked back from hospital.Radebe said that, further to this, when the case involved a partner or ex-boyfriend, many police officers discouraged women from laying charges.Sexual Offences Courts, Thuthuzela Care CentresIn a bid to counter such incidents, the department has set up 54 Sexual Offences Courts with dedicated waiting areas away from the accused, while children are able to give testimony via closed-circuit television.The minister also opened the 27th Thuthuzela Care Centre in Pietermaritzburg earlier this week. These centres link women who have been sexually abused to health workers, social workers and prosecutors.The centres have been one of the government’s most successful programmes, said Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga, adding another one would be opening soon in KwaZulu-Natal.She said women had been intensifying their efforts to make gender equality a societal issue.A victim’s testimonyMotshekga’s address was followed by testimony from a Cape Town woman who had been a victim of domestic abuse. The woman, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her children, spoke out about the 19 years of abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.“I’ve been abused in all ways possible – sexually, physically and financially,” said the woman, who left her husband two months ago when he began abusing her children.She recounted one incident where her husband dragged her by her hair to the kitchen, where he choked her until she blacked out. He then raped her before cleaning her off with a t-shirt.She was now picking up the pieces of her life and was writing a book about her abuse.Illegal to do nothingAlso speaking at the launch, Minister for Women, Children and People with Disabilities Lulu Xingwana said it was the responsibility of all in the community to report incidences of abuse of women and children to police or social workers.“The Children’s Act in particular makes it illegal for someone not to do anything if they are aware of the abuse,” said Xingwana.Western Cape Minister of Social Development Patricia de Lille said her department would be running a campaign in the province during the 16 Days of Activism, targeting men who were not paying maintenance for their children.De Lille, who estimated the value of maintenance defaults to be over R9.5-million, said her department, together with the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development, would publish the names of the defaulters daily.Twelve roadblocks would also be set up in the Western Cape for next 16 days to track down defaulters.In addition, De Lille said community development workers were out in the community to help trace about 300 mothers who were not claiming disbursements totalling about R3-million.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Bringing home the bacon

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s official: I am in the wedding season of my life. In the past five months, I’ve been to six weddings. I was talking to Bob, the dad at the August wedding. He asked if I was a wedding crasher or how I came to be invited. With the quick wit I don’t have, I explained my friendship with the mother of the groom. With the slow wit I DO have, it popped into my head 10 minutes later that I should have claimed to be a wedding crasher investigating my next story for OCJ on wedding food. The following week, an obsession grew for finding a recipe for the candied bacon chicken appetizer served at that very wedding. A desperate Pinterest and Google search began. The sweet salty bacon — all I can say is yum!Bacon has taken the food world by craze. The Pork Council reports that 62% of restaurants have something bacon on the menu. Recipes, chef shows, novelties, apparel as well as websites are centered around bacon. Bacon tops sandwiches, salads, veggies and even desserts. And who doesn’t love Jim Gaffigan’s skit about bacon? Be sure to check it out on YouTube if you haven’t seen it.Combos of bacon and ingredients you wouldn’t put together are tantalizing taste buds everywhere. Paul makes liquid nitrogen ice cream with the local chemistry class and the kids bring in the fix-ins for the ice cream. To this day Paul says the best ice cream he has ever tasted was a pancake batter ice cream with maple syrup and bacon. The chemistry teacher, Dr. U, explained to me the two flavors (sweet plus salty) create a yummy chemical reaction on your tongue but no one really knows the reason why we think it is so delicious. Dr. U shared an article with me from Cooksmart.com. In this article, they use a star to illustrate how flavors compliment and enhance each other. Sweet (such as honey/brown sugar/maple syrup) and salty (such as bacon) bring out the flavors of each other. No wonder a tad bit of sweetness makes an unforgettable bacon experience.The National Pork Board stats show that the average American eats nearly 18 servings of bacon a year. The big question is what is a serving? Modern healthy diet preaches moderation and bacon can fit that mold with two slices of bacon providing only 73 calories and 6 grams fat. The problem is not many people can stop with two slices. My son Luke can pound down a pound of bacon himself! I’m guessing he is not alone. The huge shrinkage of weight after bacon crisps up makes it easy to indulge in the crispy, salty treat.Good news to Ohio pork producers is that over 50% of Americans report always having bacon on hand in their fridge. In 2015, Ohio ranked 8th in pork production with a commercial inventory of 2.4 million pigs. Askthemeatman.com states 20 pounds of bacon (13%) comes from a 215-pound live hog. So quick calculating tells me that Ohio producers could produce close to 48 million pounds of bacon a year. That is a lot of bacon!This October celebrate the oink by pigging out on bacon. Start your day like Jim Gaffigan, with the “applause” of frying up some bacon. Enjoy lunch by topping off your salad, baked potato or veggies with Gaffigan’s “fairy dust” of bacon, bacon bits. Wrap up the end of your day in bacon too, just make your day a little bit better than it already was.Eat well and Healthy,Shelly Smokey Bacon Mac and Cheese Molly Yeh todayshow.com“if I’m really feeling decadent, I’ll let the dish of mac and cheese cool overnight in the refrigerator, cut it until squares, and then bread it and deep-fry it.” 8 ounces medium shells12 ounces applewood-smoked bacon1/4 cup flour3 cups whole milk6 oz. smoked Gouda cheese, chopped3 oz. pepper jack cheese, chopped1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated1 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepperKosher salt and black pepper1/2 cup panko breadcrumbsKetchup, for serving  1.

A Three-Home Project in Wales Aims for Serious Green

first_imgWales is pursuing an aggressive low-carbon policy for residential and commercial construction, with strict requirements for energy efficiency, water consumption, and use of sustainable materials set to take effect September 1.The United Kingdom as a whole has in fact embraced residential energy efficiency and sustainability standards that are in line with the European Parliament’s vote in mid-April requiring that new buildings constructed after 2018 produce their own energy. England and Wales use what is called the Code for Sustainable Homes, a planning-system code structure that ranges from Level 1, which is the lowest rating, to Level 6, the highest. The Welsh Assembly Government’s policy will require new housing to meet, at the minimum, Level 3 standards for projects approved on or after September 1.Aiming highOne of the projects intended to kick-start Wales’ green economy, according to a story recently published by the UK-based Green Building Press, is a three-home mini development in a former steelworks in Ebbw Vale, South Wales. The project touts not only high sustainability and energy-efficiency standards, but a high degree of collaboration among its partners, which include BRE Wales, a building and research consultancy; the Welsh Assembly Government; Blaenau Gwent Council, the county governing body; and United Welsh Housing Association.The project’s first house is designed to set a high standard not only for the development but for homebuilding elsewhere in the country. It is a three-bedroom built to the Passivhaus performance standard and a Level 6 rating under the Code for Sustainable Homes. The home will feature a closed-panel timber frame system made from Welsh timber, a solar power system, and Welsh larch cladding.A second three-bedroom house, designed to meet Level 5 code requirements, will be developed by Dragonboard, which will use its own brand of panels and sheathing rather than oriented-strand board and plasterboard.The third house, a two-bedroom, also will be built to the Passivhaus (and Level 6) standard but will be clad in Welsh lime render and feature specially developed windows made in Wales with local timber.A showcase for domestically produced materialsConstruction costs for the three homes – which will serve as prototypes for future projects – range from $173 per sq. ft. to $232 per sq. ft. They’re expected to be ready for occupancy by the summer of next year and will then be monitored for performance, factoring in occupant behavior, energy costs (which are expected to be under $80 annually), energy usage by mechanical systems, air quality, heat loss, and renewable-energy sources.“We wanted to develop a range of Welsh-made construction materials and products that could meet the high sustainability criteria now essential in developing a low-carbon built environment,” BRE Wales Director Nick Tune told Green Building Press. “Most of the homes meeting high levels of sustainability in the UK use a primarily international supply chain. We have shown what can be achieved through collaboration, partnership and a positive, can-do attitude.”last_img read more

Civic polls: Sangli, Jalgaon record 58% turnout

first_imgThe polls to the Jalgaon and Sangli-Miraj-Kupwad civic bodies in Maharashtra witnessed an average turnout of 58% on Wednesday.According to election authorities, the Sangli-Miraj-Kupwad Municipal Corporation (SMKMC) in western the part of the State recorded an estimated 60% turnout while the Jalgaon Municipal Corporation (JMC) in the northern part recorded 55%.There are 451 candidates in the fray for the 78-seat SMKMS and 303 for the 75 seats in JMC.There were 4,24,179 eligible voters for the Sangli civic body and 3,65,072 for the JMC. A total of 1,013 polling booths were set up in the two cities and nearly 5,800 election staff deployed, said State Election Commissioner J.S. Saharia. The counting is to take place on Friday.Polling commenced at 7.30 a.m. and was generally peaceful, except for stray incidents of unrest at some booths. In ward no. 11 in Sangli, former Mayor Kishore Shah was detained by the police following allegations of distributing cash, while in Jalgaon, a vehicle said to be carrying cash to be distributed to voters was seized by the police. The ruling BJP is trying to gain control of both the civic bodies. BJP leader and State Water Resources Minister Girish Mahajan has allied with Shiv Sena leader Suresh Jain’s local front, the Khandesh Vikas Aghadi (KVA) which currently rules the JMC. If he wins, Mr. Mahajan could cement his ascendancy over Eknath Khadse, who has hitherto been regarded as the BJP’s face in North Maharashtra.Mr. Jain (73), who is Mr. Khadse’s rival in Jalgaon, is an influential politico and a nine-time legislator. He was a minister in the erstwhile Shiv Sena-BJP government that was in power between 1995 and 99. He was arrested in March 2012 in connection with the ‘Gharkul’ housing scheme scam.As a member of Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in 2004, Mr. Jain was the State’s Food and Civil Supplies Minister and later defected to Shiv Sena ticket in 2009 and won again.Meanwhile, in the SMKMC, the Congress and the NCP have joined hands to take on the BJP which is targeting the ‘sugar belt’ dominated by NCP and Congress politicos.In 2008, the NCP came together with local BJP leaders to snatch power from the Congress in the civic corporation. In 2013, the Congress wrested the civic body back from the NCP.last_img read more

Gladbach stint key for Christensen

He spent the previous two seasons at Gladbach and face City four times in the Champions League during his time in Germany, though the visitors will be without star man Sergio Aguero on this occasion after he was involved in a car crash. “They were Champions League matches, big games against the best players,” said Denmark international Christensen of that quartet of meetings, of which City won three and the other ended in a draw. “It was what I wanted and good for me. But will it help me for this match? I don’t know because, now, they know more about me as well.”Andreas ChristensenOn his time in Germany, Christensen added: “I knew teams wanted me on loan, but that a two-year [arrangement] would be more appropriate for me. I wanted one year to settle in and establish myself and another to play regularly and really go for it.”It was two seasons at a high level. Chelsea kept looking after me, getting the videos and texting every day about how I was doing. Eddie Newton and Paulo Ferreira did a great job with me.”Facing the strikers in the Bundesliga and two years in the Champions League as well got me so much experience. The club could not have done any more than they did in terms of helping me on the right path.”But, as a player, you have to take responsibility for yourself as well and do what is best for you. You can’t expect everything to be given to you and you have to perform when you get the chance. I grew up a bit too, looking after myself. The whole thing was a life experience.”I was facing top strikers in the Bundesliga and that was a new thing for me. Then it was Sergio Aguero and Manchester City in the Champions League and they made it difficult for us.”But it helped me understand what will hopefully come more often in the future, and that’s something I’m looking forward to. I want to play against the top, top strikers.”Christensen has established himself in the first team despite the arrival of Antonio Rudiger, having previously been overlooked by Jose Mourinho.”It was probably only before I went on holiday this summer that I wondered if I’d get a chance,” said the 21-year-old. “But the manager showed me he trusts me and he has a great passion for me to deliver. I’ve been involved pretty much from the start so, right now, I’m happy.”When I was first at Chelsea as a first-team player [under Mourinho in 2014-15] I wasn’t even in the squad all the time. You always have to go and look at the list and sometimes you are in the squad and sometimes not. Now I feel much more like a Chelsea player.”It’s a new staff and they need to get to know me, but I’m getting a lot of playing time and I have to keep going and show I am entitled to more.”last_img read more
