The symptoms of Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC) infections vary for each person but often include severe stomach cramps and bloody diarrhea. If there is fever, it is usually not very high (less than 101 degrees Fahrenheit /less than 38.5 degrees Celsius). Most people get better within 5 7 days. Some infections are very mild, but others are severe or even life threatening.

Around 5 10 percent of those who are diagnosed with STEC infection develop a potentially life threatening complication, known as hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

Symptoms of HUS include fever, abdominal pain, feeling very tired, decreased frequency of urination, small unexplained bruises or bleeding, and pallor. Most people with HUS recover within a few weeks, but some suffer permanent damage or die. People who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately. Persons with HUS should be hospitalized because their kidneys may stop working (acute renal failure), but they may also develop other serious problems such as hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and neurologic problems.

People of any age can become infected. Children under the age of 10 and the elderly are more likely than others to develop severe illness to include HUS, but even healthy older children and young adults can become seriously ill.

New E Scams Warnings

In light of Hurricane Irene, the public is reminded to beware of fraudulent emails and websites purporting to conduct charitable relief efforts. To learn more about avoiding online fraud, please see “Tips on Avoiding Fraudulent Charitable Contribution Schemes”

Tips On Avoiding Fraudulent Charitable Contribution Schemes

Recently several natural disasters, including tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes, have devastated lives and property. In the wake of these events that have caused emotional distress and great monetary loss to numerous victims, individuals across the nation often feel a desire to help these victims, frequently through monetary donations.

These disasters prompt individuals with criminal intent to solicit contributions purportedly for a charitable organization or a good cause. Therefore, before making a donation of any kind, consumers should adhere to certain guidelines, to include the following:

Do not respond to unsolicited (SPAM) e mail.

Be skeptical of individuals representing themselves as officials soliciting via e mail for donations.

Do not click on links contained within an unsolicited e mail.

Be cautious of e mail claiming to contain pictures in attached files, as the files may contain viruses. Only open attachments from known senders.

To ensure contributions are received and used for intended purposes, make contributions directly to known organizations rather than relying on others to make the donation on your behalf.

Validate the legitimacy of the organization by directly accessing the recognized charity or aid organization’s website rather than following an alleged link to the site.

Attempt to verify the legitimacy of the non profit status of the organization by using various Internet based resources, which also may assist in confirming the actual existence of the organization.

Do not provide personal or financial information to anyone who solicits contributions: providing such information may compromise your identity and make you vulnerable to identity theft.

1 National Center for Disaster Fraud (NCDF) was originally established by the Department of Justice to investigate, prosecute, and deter fraud in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Its mission has expanded to include suspected fraud from any natural or man made disaster. More than 20 federal agencies, including the FBI, participate in the NCDF, allowing it to act as a centralized clearinghouse of information related to relief fraud.

timberland crib booties FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe steps down abruptly

timberland gilet mens FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe steps down abruptly

McCabe was a central target of President Donald Trump’s ire toward the FBI over its involvement in the investigation into potential collusion between his campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

He was eligible to retire in March, but with his accumulated leave, he was able to step down earlier.

Trump learned about the departure Monday morning, a White House official told CNN. The President did not answer a reporter’s question at the White House about McCabe’s departure.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump was not part of McCabe’s choice to step down and that the White House had not been part of the decision.

Various sources described McCabe’s departure as a mutual decision, while others said it was the result of pressure to step down. One source briefed on the matter said McCabe announced his decision to senior executives and portrayed it as his choice. The source disputed the characterization that McCabe was removed.

But a source familiar with the matter said FBI Director Christopher Wray told McCabe he is bringing in his own team, which he would not be a part of, and that it was McCabe’s decision whether to stay at the FBI or leave. In December, Trump tweeted “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is racing the clock to retire with full benefits. 90 days to go?!!!”

And in July 2017, Trump flatly asked why Attorney General Jeff Sessions had not fired McCabe yet. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got big dollars ($700,000) for his wife’s political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives,” Trump wrote. “Drain the Swamp!”

His issue with McCabe stems from his wife’s failed run for the Virginia state Senate in 2015. The Wall Street Journal reported that Dr. Jill McCabe received six contributions totaling $467,500 from then Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee.

In addition, campaign records show that the state Democratic Party, over which McAuliffe has great influence, made two other payments totaling $207,788 in September and October 2015. These donations all occurred before McCabe took over as deputy director of the FBI and before he would have had any oversight into the Clinton email investigation.

The story, which came out during the 2016 campaign, colored Trump’s view of McCabe and led him, according to The Washington Post, to ask McCabe who he voted for in the 2016 election.

Trump, during a briefing with reporters earlier this month, denied asking that question, but went on to slam McCabe, who briefly served as Trump’s acting FBI director after Trump fired James Comey in May.

“I don’t think so. No. I don’t think I did,” Trump told reporters about asking who McCabe voted for.

McCabe, according to two Virginia campaign consultants one Republican, one Democratic with access to the Virginia campaign participation rolls, did not vote in the 2016 presidential general election but did vote in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

Trump stands by his criticism of McCabe, Sanders said Monday, referring further questions to the FBI.

‘The Russia fever’

Sessions communicated to FBI Director Christopher Wray, who was hand picked by Trump and sworn in in August, that he needed a fresh start with his senior team at the FBI, a source familiar with the conversation has told CNN. Sessions specifically suggested McCabe and the bureau’s top lawyer, James Baker, should go. Baker was reassigned late last year.

With his departure, McCabe joins a list of other top bureau officials who have stepped down in recent days as Wray assembles his own team. The departures of the FBI chief of staff and general counsel were also revealed this month.

Sanders on Monday defended the pressure the President has placed on the FBI and Justice Department over the Russia investigation,
timberland crib booties FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe steps down abruptly
telling CNN’s Jim Acosta at the White House briefing that the administration has done “everything we can to be transparent.”

“The only thing the President applied pressure to is to get it resolved so you guys and everyone else can focus on the things Americans actually care about: making sure everybody gets the Russia fever out of their system once and for all,” she said.

timberland earthkeepers chelsea FBI chief says he had to tell Congress of Clinton email news

On Tuesday, Clinton partly attributed her loss to Comey’s disclosure to Congress less than two weeks before Election Day that the email investigation would be revisited. But Trump tweeted a bit later that Comey actually “was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds!”

Speaking at times with a raised voice, Comey said he faced two difficult decisions when agents told him in October that they had found emails potentially connected to the Clinton case on a laptop belonging to former Rep. Weiner’s laptop was seized as part of a sexting investigation involving a teenage girl.

Comey said he knew it was unorthodox to alert Congress to that discovery 11 days before Americans picked a new president. But he said he decided it would have been “catastrophic” to keep silent, especially when he had testified under oath that the investigation had been concluded and had promised to advise lawmakers if the probe needed to be reopened.

“I sat there that morning and could not see a door labeled, ‘No action here,'” Comey said.

The FBI obtained a warrant to search the laptop and sifted through thousands of emails, Comey said, including ones with classified information that had been forwarded to the laptop by Abedin to be printed out. Though officials found many new emails,
timberland stores FBI chief says he had to tell Congress of Clinton email news
there was nothing to change the FBI’s decision from July not to recommend charges, Comey said.

He also said he had not intended to harm the Clinton campaign with his unusual public announcement in July that Clinton and her aides had been “extremely careless” in their handling of classified information though there was not evidence to support criminal charges.

He said he had been concerned for months about how to report the investigation’s findings to the public, and because of Justice Department actions including an impromptu airplane meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch he had concluded he needed to make the announcement himself.

“My goal was to say what is true. What did we do, what did we find, what do we think? And I tried to be as complete and fair” as possible, Comey said.

He said he himself had been interviewed by the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office as part of the watchdog’s investigation into the Clinton email case. He said he welcomed that review and continues to believe he did things the right way.

Under questioning from Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Comey said he did not treat disclosures about investigations into Clinton’s emails differently than potential connections between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The FBI began a counterintelligence investigation last July into whether Russia had coordinated with Trump campaign associates to influence the American election, but he did not disclose that until a hearing in March, after Trump had been elected and taken office.

That prompted Democrats to complain of a double standard in the way the investigations were treated.

But Comey said that other than confirming the Clinton investigation existed,

he did not discuss it until after it concluded last year. And he said the FBI does not expect to have anything to say about the Russia investigation until that one was over.

cheap womens timberland boots Fatty Liver Disease Do’s And Don’ts

timberland boot cleaner Fatty Liver Disease Do’s And Don’ts

Fatty liver disease affects around 35% of all individuals within the Western World. That’s one in three people. This could quite easily be a lot higher as initially there can be no symptoms. One of the main contributors to this disease is being overweight.

The easiest thing to do is go on a diet. A word of warning as crash dieting and rapid weight loss diets can give you further problems and in some cases can actually cause fatty liver disease.

A lot of cases of this disease start with an inflamed liver and then progress slowly over time to liver scaring (liver cirrhosis). The good thing about the liver is that it can rejuvenate itself providing you take appropriate action.

If you suffer from liver disease or just want to have a bit of a detox, here are some do’s and don’ts.

Get more exercise. Preferably resistance exercises as these, in recent studies, have proven to help improve a fatty liver.

Eat raw vegetables. These are high in fibre and vitamins and in general will help you lose weight especially if you can substitute your favourite sweet thing for a raw vegetable.

Drink more water. We all know this is beneficial for our bodies. Drinking sufficient water will help the liver and kidneys do their thing a lot easier.

Avoid dairy products. Cheese, milk and yogurt assist inflammation. To give your liver the assistance it needs you need to stop eating these for a while.

Cut down on the amount of red meat as this is harmful for your liver.

Eat more fruit especially berries. Some fruits are better than others and if you have diabetes, which incidentally is linked with fatty liver disease, you need to avoid fruit that is high in fructose.

Don’t smoke, avoid pharmacy drugs. The liver has to filter out the toxins left by these and by reducing its work load it will have more resources to heal itself.

There are a number of other foods and natural supplements that you can take to help your liver.

The artichoke has two antioxidents that are extremely beneficial in helping the regeneration of liver tissue and they are Cynarin and Silymarin. For years artichokes have been used in alternative medicine for liver disease and it is only recently that scientific studies have shown that these antioxidants work.

They also help the digestive system, are a natural diuretic and have been known to improve gallbladder functionality.

There are also a few Green Teas that have antioxidants in them that can drastically improve liver functionality. These are more commonly classified as weight loss teas but the Chinese and Japanese have been drinking these for centuries as aids for digestion and detox.

Even if you haven’t got fatty liver disease it never hurts to give this organ a break from working so hard. Many people will have a period of detox and this can be as extreme as fasting for a few months or simply incorporating a few liver cleansing foods into their diet.

VALPARAISO Jeffrey John Smar has now been charged with allegedly committing three armed robberies this month in Porter County.

A probable cause affidavit filed in Porter Superior Court this week also ties Smar to armed robberies committed in Winfield last weekend.

A second suspect seen in a surveillance video during a robbery Saturday at La Posh Salon in Winfield was taken into custody Tuesday night, Winfield Town Marshal Dan Ball said. The second suspect is a 46 year old Hebron man, he said.

Smar, 47, of Hebron, was charged in Porter County with felony robbery for the Dec. 1 robbery of the Smoke Shop in Hebron; the Dec. 7 robbery of The Designer’s Club salon on Ind. 2 in Center Township and the Dec. 11 robbery of the Country Kitchen in Hebron.

Smar allegedly made off with more than $600 from the salon and $300 from the restaurant,

according to the affidavit.

Smar is also a suspect in the robbery at La Posh Salon,7853 E. 108th Ave., and a robbery Sunday at Pizza Hut,10889 Randolph St., Winfield.

When Smar was arrested Dec. 11, police found receipts in the pocket of a tan jacket from a business that had been robbed in Winfield, according to the filing.

In all three Porter County cases, Smar allegedly brandished a handgun and demanded money. In two incidents, he fled in a white Buick and in the salon robbery, fled in a tan Honda.

When police began surveillance of Smar’s home on County Road 600 West near Hebron, they spotted a white Buick in a garage at the residence and a beige Honda in the driveway. Both vehicles were registered to Smar’s mother.

In addition, police located a silver revolver wrapped in a rug outside the rear of the home; found multiple tan jackets, as described in two of the robberies, inside the home along with a black Purdue jacket described as being worn in the Smoke Shop robbery. Thursday before Superior Court Judge Roger Bradford.

HOBART Police released surveillance images and video of a smash and grab burglary early Tuesday at a T Mobile store. Tuesday, and one of them threw a landscaping brick through the window, Lt. James Gonzales said.

The man entered the store and stole several phones from a display counter.

A second suspect was seen in unreleased video, but the quality of the footage was too poor to determine the man’s identity, Gonzales said.

The first suspect was wearing gloves, a black Nike sweatshirt and Timberland style boots.

Both men fled on foot and were tracked to the area of Rand Street, near the Shelby Street apartments, police said.

CROWN POINT A criminal court judge has appointed two special prosecutors to pursue felony charges against Lake County Councilman Jamal Washington.

Stanley M. Levco and John H. Meyers were appointed Tuesday to prosecute the councilman on charges of criminal confinement, intimidation,

misdemeanor battery and interference with reporting a crime.

Judge Cunningham told Margraves, as a parent, she can understand the need for swift justice. Although not the kind of justice that calls for an eye for an eye, or “a tooth for a tooth, that’s not what’s best for this situation. I don’t disagree that as a parent and the victims that you want people held accountable, I don’t disagree with that, use the legal system to do it. Use the system of justice that’s here,” said Hon. Janice K. Cunningham, Eaton County Circuit Court Judge.

And in the courtroom, Hon. Cunningham told Margraves there will be the proper punishment for Nassar, not Margraves.”There is no way this court is going to issue any type of punishment given the circumstances of this case. And my heart does go out to you and your family because of what you’ve gone through” said Judge Cunningham.

timberland childrens shoes Father of Anne Norris Testifies at Murder Trial

The defence has called its first witness to the stand at the Anne Norris murder trial Gary Norris, Anne’s father.

It was an emotional afternoon in court. Anne Norris has sat very quietly throughout the majority of the trial, showing little emotion to this point. But that changed this afternoon when it was her father that took the stand.

The court is now on the afternoon break. An emotional hour in court as the defence starts its case with Anne Norris’ father, Gary. He described her as athletic, empathetic,

and social. He says she was an average student, and had an excellent relationship with her sister.

In 2011, Anne told her parents she was going to the police about a sexual assault that happened to her. Gary testified he believes his daughter. The case would later be put on hold when concerns were raised regarding Anne Norris’ mental health.

She told her father at the time that someone was following her. She told him, “Someone put something in my coffee.” She insisted at one point that she had AIDS, though she wasn’t tested.

Gary spoke of a later report where Anne claimed she was assaulted,

timberland leather gloves father indicted on federal child sex

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. A federal grand jury has indicted a Huntsville man and a Honduran man on sex trafficking charges involving a minor in Madison County. This is a story WHNT News 19 has been reporting on since we first learned about the incident in early November.

Billy R. Edwards and Darwin Moises Amador Zepeda are charged with commercial sex trafficking, coercion and enticement of a minor to engage in prostitution and sexual exploitation of a child. Edwards also faces additional charges of producing child pornography and being a convicted felon in possession of firearms.

“Sex trafficking of a minor is one of the most reprehensible criminal offenses imaginable,” ICE Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Raymond R. Parmer Jr. said. “Along with law enforcement partners like the Madison County Sheriff Office, HSI will continueseeking out the facilitators and perpetrators of these heinous crimes to ensure they are brought to justice.”

HSI arrested Edwards Oct. 30 on a criminal complaint charging that he paid Amador Zepeda more than $20,000 over several years to have sexual relations with a boy who was 16 years old when Amador forced him into the ongoing sexual relationship with Edwards.

According to the indictments, Edwards and Amador Zepeda both trafficked “Minor Child 1” between December 2014 and January 2017, knowing that the child would be forced or coerced into commercial sex acts. During that time, the two men used cell phones and bank accounts to induce or coerce the child to engage in prostitution, and used a cell phone to induce or coerce the child to engage in sexually explicit conduct in order to photograph the conduct, according to the charges.

timberland shoes for men Father and son are both sinners in desperate need of grace

My dad died almost two years ago and unfortunately we had unfinished business between us. Navy pilot, he was a lot of fun to be around. He loved to laugh and was one of the best conversationalists I ever known.

Extremely curious, he remembered details of prior conversations and enjoyed asking penetrating questions. He was extremely photogenic and passed along to me the love of starting conversations with total strangers, especially servers in restaurants.

He also taught me to give people nicknames and to play a form of Backgammon called Acey Deucey, which I still dearly love. We used to play Twixt by the hours, until he got so frustrated at losing to me that he vowed he would never play again. And he didn

If he liked you, there was no truer friend. Hugely compassionate, he did many behind the scenes good deeds for all sorts of people.

He professed faith in Jesus, and I believe there was a part of him that really desired to reflect the gracious heart of God. Like all of us, though, there was another part of him that warred against what God desired for his life. He used to joke with his preacher that he enjoyed pulling the skeletons out of his closet every once in a while and rattling them.

Looking back on it, I think it was his way of acknowledging how hard forgiveness was for him. He didn just rattle old skeletons he pulled them all the way out and danced with them.

Unfortunately, our relationship ended during just such a chapter, but that chapter doesn define him.

When he separated from my mom and moved to a tiny apartment in Queens,
timberland t shirt Father and son are both sinners in desperate need of grace
I was the first of us four kids to go spend a night with him, which shocked everyone because I was probably the angriest at him for moving out. I used to ride the train with him into Manhattan and spend all morning riding the elevators up and down every building I could sneak my way into.

One of my earliest memories is around age five when he had been involved in a horrific car accident that left him with a permanent limp and painful, lifelong ankle injuries. He had been in the hospital for weeks and we kids finally got to visit. I was so scared, all I could do was hide behind mom and cry; I wouldn go to him.

These and many more are the stories I miss. I didn attend his funeral, because the family tension didn end with him, and my presence would have been an unwanted distraction. I didn even get a mention in his obituary. But I loved him; he knew that, and I continue to miss him.

For me, the grieving began 12 years ago. But my prayer for him was, and is, that he would receive the same grace from Jesus Christ as I hope to receive. For if I deem it necessary to point fingers at him, then by necessity many more must be pointed back at me.

Father and son are both sinners in desperate need of grace. And one day I hope to laugh with him again, in that beautiful place where skeletons not only don dance,
timberland t shirt Father and son are both sinners in desperate need of grace
they don exist.

Nicksy ended up shooting the homeowner, Steven Gidge, in the back after he and Jeffrey Santerre threatened him with a sawed off shotgun.

Gidge nearly died, as some of the shotgun pellets that entered his body came within millimetres of hitting key arteries. More than 100 shotgun pellets were lodged in his lungs, neck and head.

Nicksy was arrested at a city residence later that day.

Santerre’s arrest came Aug. 26 primarily due to the use of video surveillance footage.

Two women in the car that the two men travelled in on Aug. 12 were also charged, as was a fifth person, who was charged with accessory after the fact.

On Tuesday, Nicksy, now 27, and Santere, 42, entered guilty pleas and received 10 and seven year jail terms respectively.

“Not a day goes by I don’t think about this scenario and play it over and over in my head,” Nicksy, who was accompanied in court by his mother, father and grandfather, told Superior Court Justice Robert Del Frate. “No matter what I think about, it comes down to I shouldn’t have been there in the first place. It should never have happened .

“I don’t believe what I see (in evidence photographs) today . It has taken this long to wrap my head around it with regard to the facts . I just want to get all the help I need so this never happens again.”

Santette, likewise, said he was sorry.

“I apologize for my behaviour,” he told Del Frate. “I am very remorseful for what happened.”

Santerre’s sister, who was sitting behind him, broke into tears upon hearing the words.

Since Nicksy had been in custody since Aug. 12, 2016, he received pre custody credit of 27 months. That leaves him with about seven years and nine months jail to serve.

Santerre received pre custody credit of two years and 75 days, leaving him with four years, nine months and 15 days jail to serve.

Nicksy and Santerre were also issued lifetime weapons bans, ordered not to contact Gidge or members of his family while in custody, and ordered to provide a genetic sample to the national DNA databank.

Both men had prior records. Santerre received a two year jail term in 2009 for a weapons conviction. Nicksy was also under two weapons orders,
timberland kids uk fatal shooting nets just
as well as a probation order he received the month before the home invasion.

The Crown dropped charges against Raymond Willard, 26, who was facing a count of accessory after the fact.

“I am tired,” Willard told The Sudbury Star outside the courtroom. “It was a long time. I’m glad it’s over. It’s destroyed me otherwise.”

Gidge said in an interview after court that he was happy with the sentences Nicksy and Santerre received.

“First of all, I’d like to thank all the (police) officers in the case, all the ambulance drivers, all the personnel at the hospital and the Crown,” he said. “A hell of a job.”

Gidge said he is back at work, feeling good and is able to move his left arm much better now.

“I was hit by lightning at 32, shot by a shotgun at 42,” he joked. “I’m worried about getting to 52.”

Gidge did not provide a victim impact statement to the court, nor did he address Justice Del Frate.

Del Frate, in accepting the joint sentencing submission by the Crown, and defence lawyers Terry Waltenbury (for Nicksy) and Robert Beckett (Santerre), told Nicksy and Santerre they were lucky Gidge survived the shotgun blast.

“It could have been first degree (murder),” he said. “You broke into a home with a loaded shotgun. He was sleeping and you shoot him. Mr. Santerre, you didn’t pull the trigger, but you were there and just as responsible as Mr. Nicksy, who did. I would be imposing a sentence of life .

“So, you get out of this 10 and seven (years), but it’s what could have happened. I know both of you think a lot about what happened that particular day, but keep it in your thoughts: you could have been facing life.”

Del Frate encouraged both men to take advantage of programs while in the penitentiary.

“This is an opportunity for you to change your lifestyle,” he said. “Mr. Santerre, you are in your mid 40s. Mr. Nicksy, you are in your mid 20s. You are going to be gone from society for a number of years before getting released. You are both relatively young individuals.

“But, when you are out of the penitentiary and you get involved in groups of people you have associated with in the past, you get the opportunity to have another crack cocaine hit or another type of drug, you have to take action to get treatment and avoid those drugs. They are not good for you or society . This is an opportunity to get the treatment you require to get out of the bad lifestyle both of you have been in for much of your lives. You both started in criminal activity in your teens and it persisted.”

mens timberland boots sale Fatal DUI crash into Thousand Oaks home draws prison term

Justin Stalberg of Camarillo was sentenced to four years in prison for a 2016 DUI crash that killed a man in Thousand Oaks.(Photo: CONTRIBUTED PHOTO/VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF OFFICE)A Camarillo man was sentenced Friday to four years in state prison for felony DUI gross vehicular manslaughter after the truck he was driving plowed into a Thousand Oaks home and killed an elderly man in 2016.

Before Ventura County Superior Court Judge Bruce Young gave the order, Justin Stalberg, 20, said he was “extremely ashamed” of his role in the Dec. 22, 2016, crash. when he lost control of the vehicle. The truck plunged down an embankment and through part of Oakbrook Neighborhood Park, then crashed into a family room of a home on Briarwood Place where 74 year old Igor Lirtsman, of New York, was sleeping.

Lirtsman had been visiting his family for the holidays, investigators said. He and his family were supposed to go to Disneyland that day, a visit he had not yet made in his life.

Prosecutors said a blood sample taken more than five hours after the crash showed Stalberg had a 0.12 percent blood alcohol level and had chemical properties that suggested he used marijuana close to the time of the incident.

The defendant also admitted to a special allegation of a serious felony and a felony charge of attempting to flee the scene of an accident involving death. He initially pleadednot guilty to the charges butlater changed his plea to guiltyin September.

A preliminary hearing was held in the case in May 2017 in which Lirtsman’s son in law Amr Abdel Dayemtestified thatStalberg allegedly continued to revthe truck’s engine and move the truck another 5 to 6 feet while the victim’slifeless body wasin front of it. Statements from two of the victim’s other childrenwere also read aloud.

Outside the courtroom Friday after the hearing, Yana Lirtsmansaid she knew whatever the sentence was, it would not be “satisfactory,” mostly because itwill never bring back her father. She called it “a feigned sense of justice.”

In her statement Friday, Yana Lirtsman saidshe had heard about Stalberg’s effort to continuehis education as the proceedings went forward. She said as a teacher, she understood the value of learning but could not understand how Stalbergmade the fatal decision in the first place or why it was more important than the case.

“Mr. Stalberg, you’re smart. You should have known better,” she said.

The crash happened in her home.

“The void and silence it created are unbearable,” she said.

Her father was on a visit that the family had been looking forward to after recently moving from New York. She had not seen her father in more than a year.

Yana Lirtsman called her father, who worked as a pilot, her mentor and hero.

She recalled his life, saying he had always been a fighter. Igor Lirtsman grew up Jewish in German occupied Russia and later spoke out about communism in Soviet Russia. With the help of then Vice President George H. W. as political refugees.

“As long as I can remember, my father he had a heightened sense of fairness and justice,” she said.

After handing down the sentence, Young said he hopes the victim’s family can hold onto those same ideas.

But for the victim’s granddaughter, Cai Dayem, forgiveness was not on the table.

At the hearing, the Agoura High School student said the horrific sight of her grandfather’s death haunts her every day and she has lingering effects from the trauma.

cheap timberlands Fatal Bear Attacks in North America

timberland laptop bag Fatal Bear Attacks in North America

Story:In June, two back to back fatal bear maulings occurred, in Alaska. These two incidents, one on June 18 near Bird Ridge, and another on June 19 near Pogo Mine, marked 2017’s first two death by bear cases, in North America.

In the 2000s, there have been 46 total fatal bear attack incidents, resulting in 48 total deaths, in North America, so far. Of these incidents, 27 occurred in the United States, and 19 occurred in Canada.

Moreover, eight fatal bear attack incidents, resulting in 10 deaths, occurred in Alaska, between January 2000 through June 2017.

Of the 46 total fatal incidents, black bears perpetrated 25 of the attacks, while brown bears perpetrated 21 of them.

According to biologists, black bears have the tendency to be less aggressive more timid towards humans, in comparison to brown bears. But the Alaska Department of Fish and Game says everyone should always be cautious of bears, regardless.

Most years, there are three fatal bear attack incidents on the continent, per year. But on average, this number decreases to 2.56 fatal incidents, per year.

So far,
cheap timberlands Fatal Bear Attacks in North America
the greatest number of fatal attacks to occur in any one year was in 2005, at six incidents. But one year prior, in 2004, the continent had its lowest number of fatal bear incidents, at zero.

While bear attacks are relatively rare occurrences, if you ever make contact with a bear, ADF says you have two choices: play dead or fight back.

When a bear is acting defensive, especially brown bears, the department says to play dead:

“Hit the ground and lie still, if a brown bear you have surprised or any female bear protecting cubs makes contact. Lie flat on your stomach, legs spread apart for stability, with your hands protecting the back of your neck. A defensive bear usually ends its attack, if it feels you are not a threat. Remain motionless for as long as possible. If you move, and the bear sees or hears you, it may return and renew its attack. In a prolonged attack, fight back.”

But when a bear perceives a human as food, the department says to fight back:

“Rarely, lone black bears or brown bears may perceive a person as potential food. Fight any bear that has been calmly focused on you and makes contact or that breaks into a tent or building. In almost all situations, your best defense against an attacking black bear is to fight back. Concentrate on the bear’s face or muzzle with anything you have on hand.”

Also important, the department warns people against running away from bears.

“They will chase fleeing animals,” according to ADF “A charging bear might come within a few feet, before running off. It’s important to stand your ground.”

And in Alaska, if you kill a bear in Defense of Life or Property (DLP), you must notify the local ADF Wildlife Conservation office or the Alaska Wildlife Troopers. They will request that you submit the bear’s skull and hide, with claws attached, alongside a DLP form,

timberland moccasin shoes Fashioning replies to March’s whims

timberland 2011 Fashioning replies to March’s whims

March 29, 2006By ABIGAIL TUCKER ABIGAIL TUCKER,SUN REPORTER

The mercury is stalled near 40 degrees, but Anne Offermann is the very vision of spring as she picks her way through the parks of Mount Vernon Place in a pale lemon jacket so thin it’s almost see through, featherweight khakis and a wide brimmed straw visor. Yet now, as the wind rakes frozen fingers through just blossomed cherry trees, she barely shivers. Her sartorial strategy?

“Long underwear,” she says, hiking up a cuff to reveal an ankle armored in thick black fabric.

No one is, which is why there are some strange outfits afoot in summery suede moccasins with extra thick socks, no less. Corduroy pants paired with barely there cotton T shirts, down parkas with denim skirts. Lime green fabric Longchamp bags slung over the furry arms of faux beaver jackets.

“It’s still freezing, but we’ve all got spring fever,” said Alexandra Calvert, who was walking her dog on Wolfe Street one nippy morning this week, wearing a long sleeve T shirt under a short sleeve T shirt and hot pink clogs perforated with dime size holes.

“Great ventilation,” the 16 year old explained. “I’m fine, unless it snows.”

Who’s to say it won’t? Mother Nature is having major mood swings. A friendly sun coaxes out the daffodils, then the wind knocks them flat. During the morning commute, the only sign of late March’s proverbial lamb is the sheepskin collar on a leather jacket. But by noon, downtown resembles the new Scores, with people shucking excess layers left and right.

Baltimoreans have more trouble getting dressed now than during any other season, said Ray Mitchener, a manager for Ruth Shaw in Cross Keys.

Starting in early March, “I get these calls: I’m in my closet, please help me,'” he said. “People just get sick of waiting for winter to be done, and they don’t know what to do. They ask: Can I go to a dinner party with open toe shoes and stockings?’

“And, no, you cannot,” he said.

The bad news is that some of the season spanning looks that passed muster in other years, such as the Mischa Barton Ugg boot and miniskirt combo, are out. You shouldn’t wear flip flops with flannel, unless you’re headed for a pedicure. Instead, fashion magazines feature a glittering array of spring transition pieces: butterfly tunics, flutter sleeves, leather espadrilles for men.

But those without the time, money or inclination to purchase polyester crinkle shirts or snake print lace camisoles must dress by their wits. And they do.

Nowhere in the glossy spreads of GQ, for instance, is there the slightest suggestion of the following ensemble: a puffy brown silk jacket zipped over a Chinese character printed T shirt, chino shorts and hiking boots.

“This is going to sound weird, but I have really warm legs,” said Mark Williams, the wearer and a Baltimore pianist. As soon as he realized that the temperature might creep higher than 50 this week, shorts became an obsession.

But trudging about a block away that same morning, Tawanna Davis’ legs were bound in leather pants. To walk just a few steps to her office, she dressed like Sir Ernest Shackleton traversing Antarctica, in a heavy parka, wool hat, shantung scarf and Timberland boots.

This get up, she explained, was fallout from of a foolish foray into spring fashion a few weeks earlier, when she misjudged the March weather.

“Instead of turtleneck sweaters, I started with the cute tank tops,” she said. “As a result, I’ve been sick for a week.”

The trick, she said, is “staying consistent.” Her thermal wear is staying on “until it gets drastic, like 80 degrees.”

A few people have little choice about what to wear. Crossing guards, for example. The reflective, super bright orange vest remains a staple, “and the only thing that really changes is whether or not we wear a scarf,” said Catherine Anderson from her post at Washington and Gough streets.

Then there are the four months pregnant people, such as Stacie Ebersold of York, Pa., who knew when she bought all short sleeved maternity clothes that she would be sorry for a few weeks in March and April. (Talk to her in the dog days of August, though.)

Before getting dressed, Linda Dembo of Baltimore likes to throw open her 11th floor apartment’s window so that she can gauge the worst of the wind.

David Griffin, a Baltimore janitor, just goes outside and breathes. If there’s condensation, he grabs a jacket.

Even if the senses scream otherwise, sometimes you just have to grin and wear it, said Alyson Hettrick, a 20 year old Johns Hopkins University student who knew perfectly well Monday morning that she shouldn’t be caught in a chino skirt and thin Polo buttondown when temperatures were expected to dip into the 30s.

leather timberland boots fashion epiphany

timberland boots sales fashion epiphany

Kylie Jenner’s love for fashion was born in church.

The reality TV star who worships clothes and the catwalk has confessed that she was on her way to Easter mass when she had her clothing epiphany.

Speaking to In Style magazine, she revealed: ”I remember the moment I first got into fashion. It was years ago, I was going to church with Khloe on Easter morning and she put on this floral dress with a denim jacket over the top.

”It made me begin thinking about style and how people put different looks together. I’ve been into clothes ever since.”

Kylie insists her dress sense is darker than her sisters Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner and that’s because of her mother Kris Jenner’s influence.

She said: ”I think my style is a little bit darker thanks to my mom. There are a lot of skulls around her house and the furniture is mostly black and white. She wears a lot of black too, I think that has definitely rubbed off on me.”

The 17 year old socialite has just launched a fashion range for Topshop with her older sibling Kendall, 19, which is inspired by the laid back Los Angeles vibe and cool boho looks that they have grown up with.

In the interview she also admitted that she loves Timberland boots, enjoys getting a spray tan and has been financially independent since she was 14.

She said: ”My mom hasn’t financially supported me for three years now. I pay for everything my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes. There are so many outfits I bought in the past that I just think now are not cute”

The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner family has over 25 million Instagram followers but says that she sometimes worries how photos of her will turn out.

She said: ”I don’t get nervous when I’m having my photograph taken on the red carpet, but I am spending the whole time thinking about how the pictures are going to turn out, whether my shirt is too low, or whether my dress is the right cut.”
