US judge returns foster mothers passport days after child abandonment charge dropped

first_imgHouston: The Indian-American foster mother of Sherin Mathews has got her passport back, nearly a week after charges were dropped against her in connection with the tragic death of her 3-year-old daughter, whose body was discovered in a culvert in suburban Dallas in 2017. Sini Mathews was charged with child endangerment after she left her adoptive daughter Sherin alone at home while she and her husband Wesley Mathews went out for dinner with their 4-four-year old biological daughter on the night before the toddler was reported missing from their house in Richardson, Texas.

On Thursday, a Dallas judge ordered authorities to return Sini’s passport, WBAP, an AM News/Talk radio station in Dallas reported. Defence attorney Heath Harris said the judge had little choice but to return the passport which was taken when Sini was arrested. He said Sini had no plans to go anywhere, but can do so if she chooses so.

She had lost parental rights to her biological daughter who has been adopted by her relatives in Houston. Lawyers are now reviewing options to possibly return her to her mother, Sini, the WBAP report said. Sini’s husband Wesley is still in Dallas County Jail for capital murder linked to Sherin’s death. He will face trial in May this year and is presently being held on a USD 1.1 million bond. Sini and Wesley, who hail from Kerala, adopted Sherin from an orphanage in Bihar in July 2016. After Sherin disappeared, Wesley had first claimed that he had punished her by making her stand outside their home at 3 am for not drinking her milk. After Sherin’s body was found in a culvert a kilometre from their home in October, 2017, Wesley then changed his version to he had tried to feed her the milk and that she choked on it. Wesley was indicted for capital murder by a grand jury and for tampering with evidence. Wesley, if convicted, could face the death penalty or an automatic sentence of life without parole.last_img read more

Domestic inquiries into extrajudicial killings insufficient UN expert stresses

3 June 2010An independent United Nations human rights expert today stressed the need for international inquiries into serious allegations of extrajudicial executions in cases where national probes have been insufficient, citing examples relating to the Gaza Strip and Sri Lanka. In many instances, domestic commissions of inquiry had only resulted in “comprehensive impunity,” Philip Alston, Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, said as he presented his annual report to the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council (HRC).“Overall, the track record of such inquiries is remarkably poor,” he added.In such cases, the international community will often need to insist that an international inquiry takes place where particularly serious allegations are made and where domestic practice has been “unconvincing.”To assert in such circumstances that matters should be left entirely to a domestic inquiry will generally be tantamount to an “abdication” on the part of the international community, said Mr. Alston, who cited the recent Israeli attack on the humanitarian flotilla headed for Gaza as one example of such a situation.Strongly condemning Israel’s actions, the Human Rights Council yesterday voted to send an independent, international probe into violations of international law resulting from Monday’s incident, which led to loss of life and injuries as well as the detention of activists and goods that were aboard the ships.“I believe that there is a compelling need for an objective and impartial international investigation to ascertain the facts and make recommendations,” said the Special Rapporteur.Mr. Alston also referred to the allegations that as many as 30,000 people were killed in Sri Lanka last year in the closing months of the conflict between Government forces and Tamil rebels and that grave violations of human rights and humanitarian law were committed.“In this case also there is a need for an independent international inquiry,” he said. “While the Council rejected this proposal a year ago, there is now a great deal of new evidence which would warrant effective action.”Mr. Alston also touched on the issues of targeted killings, noting that the practice poses a rapidly growing challenge to the international rule of law; police accountability; and election violence.In addition, he presented his reports on the situations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Colombia, Brazil and the Central African Republic (CAR).Like all Special Rapporteurs, Mr. Alston reports to the 47-member Council in an independent and unpaid capacity. read more

Fight over Vanderbilts Breakers mansion goes to high court

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Rhode Island Supreme Court is stepping into a fight that has pitted dozens of members of the Vanderbilt family against a non-profit that owns several well-known mansions in Newport.The disagreement centres on whether the group should be allowed to build a visitors centre on the grounds of the spectacular Vanderbilt mansion The Breakers, a national historic landmark.The high court on Tuesday will hear arguments about two lawsuits over the plan to build the visitors centre on the 13-acre grounds of the mansion, built in the late 1800s by Cornelius Vanderbilt II. Opponents — including designer Gloria Vanderbilt and nearly four dozen other members of the Vanderbilt family, as well as dozens of preservationists and others — have said the plan would “permanently mar this national symbol of Newport’s Gilded Age.”The Preservation Society of Newport Country, which owns The Breakers and several other mansions in the wealthy resort town, says it wants to build the visitors centre in a little-used portion of the grounds to better serve its 400,000 annual visitors with improved ticketing and restroom facilities, as well as a place to buy pre-made sandwiches and refreshments. The society is Rhode Island’s largest cultural institution by revenue, bringing in $22 million in 2014.Many of the arguments out of the courtroom focus on whether the project would affect the historical integrity of the landscape that surrounds the 70-room mansion. Tuesday’s arguments are not expected to focus on that question, but rather on the more mundane intricacies of local zoning laws, and whether the Preservation Society should be allowed to serve food on its properties.A neighbours group, the Bellevue-Ochre Point Neighborhood Association, is fighting the city zoning board’s approval of the plan. The lawyer for the neighbours group wrote in papers filed ahead of the arguments that the questions before the court will have “profound and lasting implications” on how land is used in Newport.

S11D continues to progress towards production

first_imgVale recently announced that work on the foundation plates of the future S11D plant’s secondary iron ore screening unit has already concluded. Similar to a reinforced concrete slab laid directly on the subsoil, this type of structure is used to ensure uniform distribution of the weight of the buildings it supports. The construction work, which involved laying the foundations of the three buildings responsible for the final iron ore screening process, was concluded in late July. In all, the project used more than 22,000 m3 of concrete. The next stage, which has already begun, involves construction of the pillars that will support the modules. The site is expected to be ready to receive the initial structures by December.From a mining standpoint, the four fully mobile crushing stations for overburden removal from Sandvik have been assembled and are in place awaiting completion of other elements of the project infrastructure. These PF200 rigs, first mentioned by IM back in 2012, incorporate 11,500 t/h CR810 hybrid double roll crushers measuring 1.8 m by 4 m. Each PF200 forms the basis of one overburden line; with four P&H 4100 rope shovels loading them. Sandvik is supplying in addition the belt wagons, face conveyors, out of pit conveyors, conveyors to spreaders and the spreaders themselves.In its second quarter 2014 report, Vale stated that S11D (including mine, plant and associated logistics referred to as CLN S11D), had “reached 32% of combined physical progress in 2Q14 and is progressing according to plan. During the quarter, Vale initiated the installation of precast foundations for the long distance conveyor belt, realised the first detonation on the mine site and concluded the grinding and secondary screening foundations for the plant.”last_img read more

10 Things You Shouldnt Be Putting in Your Recycle Bin

first_imgStay on target Around 90% of American households recycle these days, which is a great thing. There’s just one little thing that needs work.Well, one little thing in addition to getting that number up another ten points. Many of us are tossing things into our recycling bins that we shouldn’t.That’s a big problem because a few bad apples really can spoil the whole bunch. Contaminated items can cause an entire load of perfectly good recyclables to wind up in a landfill.The solution is simple enough. We just need to be a bit more careful when we’re sorting.The Detroit Free Press recently spoke to some recycling industry insiders to find out what the most problematic items were. They compiled the top ten, and some of the entries may surprise you.For example, a lot of people don’t realize that tissue paper can’t be recycled, but it rounded out the Freep’s list along with paper towels.Plastic bags are on the list, too. They can get tangled in machinery and cause serious mechanical issues. They’re best left for dedicated bag recycling initiatives, dropped off at a participating store, or taken directly to a recycling center that accepts them.Your old garden hoses and extensions cords? They’re not meant for blue bins either. The same goes for wire clothes hangers in most areas, but many dry cleaners are happy to take them back for re-use… and that’s even better than recycling them.Other metal items can cause problems, too. Old auto parts may need to be taken to a scrap yard (where you may get a few bucks for them anyway) and you can probably take any old pots and pans you want to get rid of there, too.That retro-tastic stash of cassettes and VHS tapes you’ve been hoping might net you a tidy profit one day? When you finally decide to get rid of them, don’t put them with your recycling.Plastic utensils can’t be recycled, and neither can most cardboard pizza boxes. Not unless they somehow manage to stay grease-free while holding their delicious cargo.Styrofoam is another thing you should keep out of your bin, though that may change in the near future. A company in Montreal has figured out a way to turn polystyrene back into pellets that can be formed back into plastic.We’ve been able to make some amazing things from recycled products. Like chewing gum into sneakers, Nissan’s leaf battery solar kits, and wastewater that’s being turned into beer.

Impossible Whopper Coming Soon to All US Burger King Branches

first_imgStay on target Burger King’s Impossible Whopper Available Nationwide For Limited TimeBurger King Celebrates ‘Stranger Things’ With ‘Upside Down’ Whopper Burger King will reportedly roll out its Impossible Whopper—the vegetarian twist on a fast food classic—to locations across the nation this year.This month’s trial run in St. Louis went “exceedingly well,” a company spokesperson told CNN, boasting that sales of the meat-free patty are “complementary” to the regular Whopper.The restaurant did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.Following White Castle’s lead, Burger King recently partnered with Impossible Food to bring a meatless burger to the market.The Silicon Valley startup, which develops plant-based substitutes for meat and dairy products, launched its avant-garde meat analogue patty in July 2016.Production of the Impossible Burger uses 95 percent less land and 74 percent less water than ground beef from cows, and emits 87 percent less greenhouse gas, according to the firm.The signature sandwich—upgraded early this year—also promises direct health benefits like additional protein, less total fat, zero cholesterol, and fewer calories than a similar-sized meat burger. Not to mention it’s gluten-free.Burger King’s Chief Marketing Officer Fernando Machado told the New York Times that initial taste testers can’t tell the difference between the fan-favorite meat patty and the vegetarian-friendly new one.“People on my team who know the Whopper inside and out, they try it and they struggle to differentiate which one is which,” Machado said early this month.Hungry customers can already order an Impossible Whopper from 59 locations in the St. Louis area. And soon, every BK branch in the country.“I have high expectations that it’s going to be a big business, not just a niche product,” Machado added.It worked for UK bakery Greggs, which launched a vegan sausage roll that, by all accounts, has boosted sales nearly 10 percent in seven weeks.“Our whole focus is on making products that deliver everything that meat lovers care about,” Impossible Foods founder Pat Brown said in an NYT interview.The company’s next hurdle: feed the growing demand for healthier, more environmentally friendly food.On the same day Burger King introduced the new Whopper, Impossible patties hit kitchens in all 570 locations of casual dining chain Red Robin.More on Geek.com:This Veggie Burger Bleeds so Vegetarians Can Feel Like They’re Eating MeatWatch: YouTuber Sends Big Mac Burger Into Space, Eats ItThis Amazing Machine Can Cook, Assemble 100 Delicious Burgers An Hourlast_img read more

Where Does Your Acre Go Top States Lead Charge on World Hunger

first_imgClassroom at WSF-supported school with SoyCow operation in Guatemala. Teachers report girls are able to better comprehend their schoolwork after receiving soymilk in the morning. Photo Credit: Karen Coble-Edwards, KCE Public AffairsWhere does your acre go? As harvest approaches, farmers everywhere are planning where their crops will end up. Soybeans, in particular, are of interest to the World Soy Foundation (WSF) as those beans have the power to make a world of difference to hungry children around the world. Using the power of soy, the Foundation is bringing sustainable solutions to the greatest issue facing the world today, hunger—which takes more lives each year than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.The Foundation’s Acre Challenge campaign, a fundraising campaign started by farmers for farmers, is a way U.S. soybean farmers can be a part of the solution to hunger, using a crop they work hard to grow. By donating the value of an acre of soybeans (yield multiplied by price), farmers can impact lives of those in the greatest need. The campaign is in its final weeks—ending Sept. 30—and the Foundation has raised over 94 percent of a $100,000 goal. Wonder where your acre would go if you gave to WSF? Check out this video, “Where Does My Acre Go?” to learn more.Iowa, the Foundation’s top supporting state, is no stranger to the number one spot. The farmers of Iowa have led the charge with their Acre Challenge support, with 65 donors giving over $16,000. Iowa’s unwavering support has helped support projects like a SoyCow operation at a WSF-partner school in an impoverished area of Guatemala. Teachers at the school reported recently that they see firsthand how soy nutrition has contributed to the 120 girls’ ability to comprehend their schoolwork when they receive fresh soymilk for breakfast before class. Their support also helped the WSF mobilize an extruder in Nicaragua with the ability to produce two tons of corn-soy blend per hour, and holds the potential to feed thousands of people around Managua.Not far behind the number one spot are the farmers of Illinois. These farmers continue to show that they know the difference the value of one of their acres can make. Since the Challenge started last October, nearly 50 donors have given over $13,600 to support the WSF in their work. It is a tight race for second place, as Missouri has crept its way up to nearly $13,400 donated by 13 individuals.With one month left, the race to be the top supporting state and a leader in addressing the world’s greatest health risk is still in full force. By donating the value of an acre, not only will you be helping the state you call home reach the number one spot, but you’ll be helping the WSF reach their goal of $100,000 raised and joining them in reducing malnutrition through the power of soy. If just 24 people gave $250, which is well under the projected value of this year’s acre, the WSF would surpass their goal.Give the gift of protein today!

Valdez woman run over by drunk driver police say

first_imgValdez police say a drunk driver ran over and killed a woman Sunday morning outside of a local bar. Police arrested Ero Walli for allegedly striking and killing Chellsie Hoffman, a 31-year-old mother of four, with his pickup before fleeing the scene.According to a press release from the Valdez Police Department, officers responded to a hit-and-run call involving a pedestrian outside of the Boardroom Bar at 2:30 a.m. Sunday. KBBI reached out to Valdez Police, but officers were not immediately available for comment.According to the Anchorage Daily News, court documents detailed that a friend told Walli he was too drunk to drive, but he got into his Dodge Ram anyways. Court documents say Walli struck Hoffman as she stood on the sidewalk near the front of the bar. Walli then allegedly stopped and then drove over Hoffman.Valdez Police say the Valdez Fire Department responded to the scene and transported her to Providence Valdez Medical Center. Hoffman was pronounced dead roughly an hour after the incident, according to police.Police say they were able to track Walli’s vehicle to a residence on Falcon Avenue where he was arrested and taken to the Valdez Jail. Nearly three hours after he allegedly struck Hoffman, Walli’s blood alcohol level was at .305 percent, more than three times the legal limit.According to the ADN, court documents say Walli initially denied that he had been drinking or had gone to the bar for drinks. Police charged Walli with two felony counts Monday for manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident. Police also charged him with driving while intoxicated and possessing a weapon while under the influence, both misdemeanors.According to Walli’s Facebook page, he currently lives in Valdez, but he is originally from the Homer area.Walli was the director of Marine operations at Crowley Maritime Corporation, which currently provides tug services for Alyeska Pipeline Service Company. Crowley said in an emailed statement that its sincerest condolences go out to Hoffman’s family’s and to everyone who is affected by her death. The company says Walli has been terminated from his position.Valdez Police say Walli appeared for arraignment on Monday and bail was set at $100,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled on April 18.The Valdez community is mourning the death of Hoffman and there has been an outflow of support for her family. A Valdez coffee shop, Klondike Coffee, is donating its sales Monday to the family, and the community is providing meals to Hoffman’s family. Some on social media are also calling for the Boardroom Bar’s liquor license to be revoked.last_img read more

Rajkummar Rao signs 3 films deal with Karan Johar for Rs 24

first_imgRajkummar Rao, Karan JoharInstagramOnce underrated, now one of the most sought after actors in Bollywood, Rajkummar Rao has come a long way proving his mettle time and again on the silver screen. The actor has managed to put himself on the wishlist of several Bollywood filmmakers by delivering back-to-back hits at the box office and winning several accolades to his name. And now reports are doing the rounds of the industry that Rajkummar has signed a 3 films deal with Karan Johar for a whopping Rs 24 crore.If the industry grapevine is to be believed, Karan Johar is trying to experiment with his usual filmmaking process by picking up some heartland stories. And to do justice to the stories, KJo couldn’t think of anyone else than Rajkummar to portray these roles which would be hand-wired to the backdrop of a small town.With this exuberant deal, Rajkummmar who reportedly used to draw a fee of Rs 4-6 crore for his film, would now be getting upto Rs 8 crore (approximately) for each of the three films.And it looks like Rajkummar and Karan Johar are already having a good tuning with each other which would eventually make things easier for both to bring out the desire outcome on the big screen. When Rajkummar graced the Koffee couch, he said that he would want to work alongside Karan Johar in a film about same sex-love.However, an official confirmation about Rajkummar and Karan Johar’s collaboration is still awaited. On a related note, Rajkummar recently bagged the ‘Performer of the Year’ award at the Filmfare Middle East Awards 2019 ceremony held in Oman.”It’s a great honour to receive this award. I also feel gratified in a way to know that my films not only entertain audiences in India but globally,” Rajkummar said in a statement.”I’ve had very distinguished films in 2018 and this win certifies that the audiences are also open to experimentation and watching something new and interesting,” he added.He is now looking forward to this year’s anticipated films, including Mental Hai Kya, Turram Khan, Imli and Made In China.last_img read more

The combined result of those sensors — all made by Sony — give the P30 Pro some insane photographic abilities, with sharp daylight photography and truly impressive performance at night. With two 40MP sensors, you can expect the Mate 30 Pro to perform even better.Of course, some Samsung fans may hope that the Note 10 has some magical AI software that will turn the data captured by its tiny 12MP sensors into something better than what the P30 Pro or the Mate 30 Pro can do — but that’s unlikely. AI is really good, as the Pixel 3 shows, but it is not magical. Additionally, Huawei uses AI too. Working from the massive trove of data captured by two 40-megapixel sensors, the final result will always be a lot better. It’s just a matter of physics.(Image credit: Redmi)Wait for the S11 or get something elseAll that said, Ice Universe has confirmed that the S11 will have a “substantial upgrade” in 2020. All we know seems to indicate that Samsung will use its new Isocell Bright GW1 64-megapixel f1/1.72 sensor. According to the rumors, the GW1 is likely to appear first in the next Redmi flagship. Samsung may debut it in its own Galaxy A70s later this year.The GW1 will keep the same size for each pixel, at 0.8 micrometers. That means that the surface area of this new Samsung sensor will be bigger than the Sony sensors used in the P30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro. In theory, in well-lit scenes, the Samsung sensor will be able to produce crystal-clear 9,215 x 6,812-pixel images, besting the P30 Pro. Under low-light conditions, the Samsung sensor, like the Huawei one, will join four pixels into one to multiply its photosensitivity using Samsung’s tetracell technology and remosaic algorithm. Potentially, the Samsung Galaxy S11 will be able to create great images with no light, again beating the P30 Pro.Of course, we don’t know exactly how the Seoul-based mobile giant is planning to implement its 64MP sensor. Will there be one or two? If there’s only one, the two 40MP Mate 30 Pro may still come ahead in photo quality and light sensitivity. Not only that but, by 2020, there may be new Sony processors coming to market. While the Japanese company has not revealed its 2020 roadmap yet, it has recently merged its Alpha and mobile sensor divisions into one. There are reports that 2020 may see 100-megapixel sensors, which will leapfrog Samsung’s 64MP once again.It seems like a losing battle for the Koreans at this point. But regardless of all this potential developments, it seems clear that the Note 10 will be a hard pass to anyone looking for the best photographic capabilities in a phone. You might want to either wait for the S11, or get something from someone else.Samsung’s Phone of the Future Looks Like ThisSamsung Is One Step Closer to a True All-Screen PhoneSamsung CEO Admits Galaxy Fold Launch was ‘Embarrassing’ Hate their allegedly spying butts all you want, but all real-world tests show Huawei is objectively the current king of the mobile photographic hill. And this graphic shows that it will stay that way for a while — at least (maybe!) until Samsung releases the Galaxy S11 with its rumored 64-megapixel Isocell Bright GW1.The reliable Chinese leaker Ice Universe shared the photo above yesterday, confirming that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will have two 40-megapixel sensors, severely outmatching the Note 10’s biggest sensor, which is 12-megapixel. “There seems [sic] to be a lot of people who don’t know how big the gap [in photographic abilities] is,” the rumor-mongering feline says in his tweet. “Note 10 has no chance of beating Mate 30 Pro in terms of camera hardware.” Not only will the Huawei phone have two 40-megapixel sensors, but they will be gigantic compared to the Note 10’s puny 12MP sensor.RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…logoCreated with Sketch.last_img read more
