The two Correctional Service Canada employees from Kingston charged with offences related to Project Batlow are married to each other, the Whig Standard has learned.

Andrea De Laat, 33, was charged by the Ontario Provincial Police with conspiracy to traffic marijuana and conspiracy to traffic hashish, while Christopher D 44, was charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.

Before that, sources said, D worked the front entrance at Kingston Penitentiary until it closed in September 2013 and was then transferred to Millhaven, performing the same duties about the same time the OPP Project Batlow investigation began.

Sources also said D was experienced in using an ion scanning machine, which can identify the presence of molecules of drugs that could be on a visitor, staff member or in incoming mail and packages.

He used the scanner while at Kingston Penitentiary and Millhaven Institution.

The scanning machines can usually be found at front entrances of correctional facilities.

Classified as a CX3 officer, D is no longer in the Union of Canadian Correctional Officers, second national vice president Jason Godin said.

But D has been a union executive member in the past, serving as communications officer for the union while at Kingston Penitentiary.

He also appears in a photo of union guards holding a large cheque in front of the now closed penitentiary after guards raised more than $5,700 in August 2013 for the children oncology unit at Kingston General Hospital.

De Laat would be a member of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, Godin said.

Sources also said the couple have been suspended by the CSC and their email addresses have been removed from CSC internal email group.

Kyle Lawlor, media relations and outreach officer for the CSC, couldn confirm if the couple have been suspended due to its own internal investigation, which is underway.

would be inappropriate for the Correctional Service of Canada to comment on matters under investigation, he said. to the Privacy Act, the Correctional Service of Canada cannot comment on specific cases of staff misconduct. to CSC code of discipline, If the couple are convicted criminally, it appears there are grounds for disciplinary sanctions against De Laat and D conduct and appearance, the code states: employee has committed an infraction, if he/she commits an indictable offence or an offence punishable on summary conviction under any statute of Canada or of any province or territory, which may bring discredit to the service or affect his/her continued performance with the service. said the employment status of De Laat and D may be released once the internal investigation is complete.

does not tolerate any breach of its policies, and all allegations, regardless of the source, are thoroughly investigated by CSC, Lawlor added.

The 16 month police investigation in 10 Ontario communities resulted in 29 people being charged with a total of 150 Criminal Code and Controlled Drug and Substances Act charges.

In October 2013, members of the OPP Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau and Biker Enforcement Unit launched the investigation, which focused on sophisticated and extensive drug trafficking network involving members and associates of the Ontario Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and a Hells Angels Motorcycle Club support club known as Crew. OPP statement said the criminal network was responsible for trafficking large quantities of cocaine and marijuana.

As well, the OPP Asset Forfeiture Unit has seized offence related property that includes 10 vehicles, two Harley Davidson motorcycles and $300,000 in cash.

timberland sandals account of the long journey from Georgia to Maine part 1

Carey Kish of Mount Desert Island has been adventuring in the woods and mountains of Maine for, well, a long time. If there’s a trail be it on dirt, rock, snow, water or pavement he will find it, explore it, and write about it. Follow his outdoor travels and musings here, and on Facebook/CareyKish.

Do you dream of thru hiking the Appalachian Trail, of slipping away from civilization for a while, paring down to only the simple essentials that can be carried in a backpack, and taking on a challenge that is bigger than yourself? It takes about five million steps to hike the AT from end to end, and the real first steps to decide to do it and then make a solid plan, are perhaps the most difficult.

The Appalachian Trail isn’t the longest footpath in the world, but it is arguably the most famous and certainly the most traveled. The complete 2,189 mile trek is the ultimate backpacking adventure and the hike of a lifetime for many hikers. Several thousand people attempt the trail every year, but only a fraction who start actually finish.

In 2015, this hiker walked the entire AT for the second time, the first in 1977 from Springer Mtn. in Georgia to the summit of Katahdin in Maine, taking 189 glorious days to go the distance. From mid March to early October, I wrote a series of columns for the Maine Sunday Telegram chronicling the long journey, and I have compiled those accounts into a four part series.

Part 1 presented here covers some of the pre trip planning and musings, then the actual hiking through Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee and into southern Virginia. I hope you enjoy this armchair adventure and find inspiration through my footsteps enough to maybe tackle the big hike yourself one day. Click on the highlighted links to read each piece. Enjoy!This hiker is gearing up to tackle the entire Appalachian Trail, a journey of some 2,200 miles from Springer Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia to the lofty summit of Katahdin in Baxter State Park deep in Maine’s North Woods. This will be my second end to end or “thru hike” of the trail; the first was in 1977, right out of Bangor High School at age 18. Carey Kish photo.

Entering the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Our thru hiker enjoys an Easter feast at the start of the famous mountain range, with features elevations of 5 6,000 feet.

I walked into Fontana Lodge forgetting entirely that it was Easter Sunday. My room wasn’t yet ready, so a hiker friend and I were directed to the dining room, where the only menu available was a lavish Easter buffet. And there we sat, dirty and smelly amongst the well dressed holiday diners, polishing off as only ravenous thru hikers can, six plates each of ham, turkey, roast beef and all the fixings, plus salad and desserts. Carey Kish photo.

Making some unexpected friends in North Carolina. Having the trail name has its distinct advantages.

Upon check in at Mountain Harbour B in Roan Mountain, Tennessee, I was presented with a surprise package and trail magic of the finest kind, a 12 pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Apparently I’d made quite an impression on some of the nighttime visitors a ways back at Rich Mountain fire tower, who’d arranged to have the beer delivered to me at one of my planned stops ahead. Having the trail name “Beerman” has its perks. Carey Kish photo.

timberland laces accomplished director make ‘Othello’ worth seeing in Agoura Hills

Corey Roberts, left, stars as Othello and Alan Waserman stars as Iago in the California Shakespeare Company’s production of “Othello,” on stage in Agoura Hills through Feb. 24.(Photo: CONTRIBUTED PHOTO)California Shakespeare Company founder William H. Fisher is nothing if not intrepid. In the more than quarter century since he initiated the theater troupehe’s brought some of the most revered, and studied, works of the iconic playwright to Ventura County stages.

And he’s accomplished it all without having a continuing designated stage on which to set the plays. Most areas of Ventura County have been sites of Fisher’s productions over the years, offering dedicated stages, vacant storefronts, galleries with temporary extra space, or unoccupied rooms in multi use buildings.

This season finds Othello,the victorious Moor who has impressed the Duke of Venice with his battle prowess, and the villainous Iago alternately pacing the floors and delivering the drama’s potent lines with clarity and nuance. The stage site is in Playhouse 101, tucked into a handsome building on 28720 Canwood St., Agoura Hills, close to the 101 freeway. Those unfamiliar with the area might want to take along a print out of directions to guide them to the exact spot.

As always, the search is worth the effort. With a cast of veteran actors and relative newcomers, all coached in Fisher’s dedication to the meaning and clarity of lines, this “Othello” rivets attention throughout its two act, two hour presentation.

Ensemble, band keep Simi Valley’s ‘Sister Act’ movingSee highlights from Thomas Fire Benefit Festival’Buyer and Cellar’ offers delightful distraction from recent disastersIt works well in the small space because the two central figures, successful battle leader Othello and the devious courtier Iago determined to destroy him, are comfortable with Fisher’s style and understand the essence of their contrasting roles. Ever wary of obstacles to his goal of turning the royal situation to his benefit, Iago is even more aroused when he realizes that the heroic Moor has not only won a battle, but also the heart of the radiant Desdemona, daughter of Brabantio, adding a permanent link for him to sever.

Iago is played with oily finesse by Alan Waserman, a veteran actor whose experience is apparent from his sharply defined delivery of the character’s treacherous lines as well as his ability to be at the heart of every disturbing moment of the tragedy.

Corey Roberts as an Othello, who at 6 feet 7 inches tall towers over the rest of the cast, manages to touchingly express the man’s overwhelming joy at having won not just battles, but a loving wife. Despite his battle finesse, Othello, a relative neophyte in dealing with European women, or perfidious men, is easily twisted into a frenzy by Iago’s elaborate plot to destroy him.

Bit by bit, Iago chips away at the strength of the Othello Desdemona bond, while using those around him to carry out his barely disguised plans. Among those tricked into doing his bidding are Cassio, a loyal lieutenant who is led into innocent betrayal, played with natural charm by Ben Birmingham; Emilia, Desdemona’s aide and Iago’s wife, played with zest by Jenna Scanlon; Roderigo, a “gulled” gentleman played by Logan Chase; and Kate DiGiorgio as a spicy courtesan. Also adding to the successful rendition of the play are Bill Walthall as Desdemona’s shaken father; Dillon Stewart as a Senator and the Governor of Cyprus; and Eric McGowan as the Duke of Venice and Lodovico, a Venetian nobleman. Early in the play figures scurry across the stage on royal business and such, anonymous helpers who might turn up later in central roles.

Page de la Harpe alternately brings joy and fear to the fore as a Desdemona who cannot believe that anyone around her would wish her ill. It seems that she and Othello were well matched, and undone, by their faith in each other, and those around them.

Broadcast live from the Bord Gis Energy Theatre, the reaction was swift and overwhelmingly positive with many viewers taking to Twitter to voice their approval of the show with Centenary trending worldwide on the social media site. The Independent described the one off cultural celebration as “chilling and beautiful” stating that it “struck a chord with many viewers”.

The special television event was created and Exec Produced by Cilian Fennell who described the concert as a “modern telling of the story of our foundation as a Republic and the struggles and sacrifices of those who built the country we have today”. Alan Byrne directed while Niamh N Churnin produced. TVM were the OB provider with Helen Arnold serving as OB Co Ordinator.

Spliced throughout the show were VT inserts which were produced by South Wind Blows and Tyrone Productions. The VT Editor was Clare Killane.

The event also featured dance troupes from across the island of Ireland, including CoisCim and aerialists Fidget Feet. They took centre stage on the night along with the RT Concert Orchestra and choirs from around the country to perform songs that have become part of the Irish psyche. As part of the show Danny O’Reilly from The Coronas joined forces with his sister Risn O and cousin Aoife Scott to record a very special version of Grace live in Kilmanham Gaol.

President Michael D. Higgins was also in attendance at the Bord Gis Energy Theatre and paid tribute to all the Irish rebels who died during the Rising in both Irish and English.

Speaking about the event, Managing Director for RT Television Glen Killane said: “Arts and culture are at the very heart of the Irish identity so it’s fitting that ‘Centenary’ is the culmination of RT 1916, to reflect on the Rising itself and the nation we have become. RT is very proud to present Centenary, telling our nation’s story through music, poetry, dance and song in collaboration with some of Ireland’s best creative talents.”

womens timberlands boots Accidents that changed aviation

mens timberland boots on sale Accidents that changed aviation

asset not included because it is a duplicate of primary asset

How do you know an airplane was properly designed for a safe flight? How good are the designers and manufacturers? These are some of the questions regulators must ask every time a new airplane is built. How do they know what questions to ask? What are the standards?

The safety and reliability of today modern airplanes has come from decades of improvements and some tragic accidents. One of the early ones was in March 1931, when a TWA F 10 crash killed one of the most well known football coaches in America, Knute Rockne of Notre Dame. The Fokker F 10 tri motor was flying from Kansas City to Wichita when the wooden wing spar failed due to moisture. Department of Commerce (predecessor of the Federal Aviation Administration) grounded all F 10s until safety inspections proved the airplanes were safe for flight.

After this accident, airplanes would have metal spars never again would an airliner lose a wing due to wood rot. Designs improved and the first modern airliner, the Boeing 247, began to fly passengers. However, it was the DC 3 that became the icon of American aviation in the 1930s.

The certification of the DC 3 required many new safety standards. Should an engine fail, the airplane must be able to climb, fly and land safely. Fire extinguishing systems and modernized navigations systems were included. These were new, but as World War II approached these additions were critical to the improving safety of aviation.

During the war years, the need for range, payload and speed brought new designs and new certification standards. Pressurized cabins, engine fire extinguishers and weather radar became a part of airline operations. Each of these improvements had to meet growing standards by expanded testing.

In the early 1950s, the jet age arrived in the United Kingdom. The De Havilland Comet flew higher, faster and smoother than any other airliner. Sadly, the airplane had a fatal design flaw causing the fuselage to rip open in flight. They were grounded while investigators determined the cause. Once the problem, primarily metal fatigue, was understood, every future airliner would be safer due to upgraded certification standards.

Today, airplanes such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 are no longer built of metal. Lighter and stronger composite material is the primary component. Again, testing and standards had to be modified and improved. Years of testing and proving the design are now the norm before a passenger walks down the aisle and settles into a seat for a flight. The evolving standards for the issuance of an airworthiness certificate have helped the number of design related problems or threats drop to near zero.

On rare occasions a problem still occurs, such as the battery issues in the early Boeing 787s. The FAA grounded the airplane for testing before anyone was injured or an accident occurred. Improvements proved to the FAA the airplane was safe, and it returned to service, now flying thousands of flights daily.

Today, airliners fly more than 40 million flights transporting 4 billion passengers each year to their destinations safely. The designs continue to improve and the certification standards evolve, making aviation safer than ever.

timberland safety boots Accidents caused by DC government workers cost taxpayers millions

Government has 6,000 vehicles traveling the streets of Washington. And some of the city employees behind the wheel are crashing their government owned vehicles over and over again, and still keeping their jobs.

Taxpayers are paying millions for all that bad driving. employees, shows The District has paid $4.3 million in accident settlements over the last five years.

All of that money is taxpayer dollars. workers. The data obtained by WUSA9 does not specify whether the employee behind the wheel was at fault in the accident.

Two, three or even four accident settlements are not always enough to get those employees off the streets. Three out of four workers with multiple accident settlements are still on the job.

Records show DC Government used tax dollars to pay at least four settlements for accidents when Aida Rodriguez, a K 9 officer with the DC Police Department, was behind the wheel. The settlements, dating back to 2012, were worth more than $62,000.

In an interview, Rodriguez downplayed her accident record. In fact, she couldn’t seem to remember how many she’d had.

“I’ve been on the police department for 24 years. I don’t know. I don’t count them,”Rodriguez said. “Who wants to reflect on an accident? It’s not something we go out here and do on purpose.”

Rodriguez is not the only accident prone employee The District shelled out big bucks for. wrote settlement checks of $35,000 and $5,800 for a fire inspector who is still on the job.

The government also paid nearly $66,000 for a correction officer who is still working for the department. also agreed to settlements of $20,000, $13,000 and $8,600 for a Public Works employee, who is still driving for the city.

Public Works Director Chris Shorter said when it comes to disciplining employees for accidents, a one size fits all policy is unfair.

“Me, as a director,
high timberland boots Accidents caused by DC government workers cost taxpayers millions
saying that if you no matter what the circumstances, three accidents in a year let’s say, no matter what the context, we’re going to terminate your employment, would not be a smart approach to manage this agency,” Shorter said.

Shorter said just because an employee has an accident, it doesn’t mean they were driving recklessly. He said sometimes “things just happen.”

“Having an employee that runs into a fence while collecting trash recycling is very different than some of what your viewers might see in terms of very dangerous accidents that happen every day,” Shorter said.

Rather than simply firing employees with multiple accidents, Shorter said a better response is training and discipline within each employees individual agency.

K 9 Officer Rodriguez said she had faced discipline for her past accidents. Though she couldn’t be sure if those were the crashes that led to her four accident settlements.

“I don’t know which ones you’re referring to,” Rodriguez said. government pays an accident settlement, the employee is not part of the hearing and not informed of the outcome.

Rodriguez also said the city doesn’t contest accident claims.

“They don’t fight the accidents, and a lot of people make complaints and say that they got hurt and stuff happened and it didn’t.” Rodriguez said. “The department does not fight on anybody’s behalf.”

Jed Ross, who heads up the agency that handles accident settlements, said that’s not true.

“We review every single claim very stringently,” Ross said. “So no, we do not pay for things that we do not believe is in the best interest of The District.”

In August 2017, Mayor Bowser issued an order reaffirming a similar mandate in 2009 that said all government employees, including police, should drive safely and abide by all traffic laws.

However, there is no district wide set of guidelines as to what happens when government employees get in a crash. There is also no mandatory consequences for repeat offenders, despite the fact that with 6,000 city owed vehicles on the road, accidents are going to happen.

mens black timberland boots Accidental Hit Man

Contact Us,Tom Lehmann and a few buddies had been partying for nearly a week without sleep. They had started the binge long before the new year a lot of meth, a bit of coke, some hits of X, a couple of snorts of ketamine, and, of course, a steady supply of joints and strippers. It included a December 31 bash at Opium Garden in South Beach, then an afterparty downtown at Club Space.

Now, on January 4, 2002, it was time to get to work.

A guy named Steve Citranglo owed Leh money $80,000, to be exact for a shipment of ketamine, the PCP like horse tranquilizer that makes people hallucinate and trip for hours. Citranglo had accepted the drugs long ago. His payment was way overdue.

The man needed an incentive, Leh thought. His meth addled plan: Invite Citranglo to his Coral Gables condo and beat him. This would serve a dual purpose. Citranglo would also be discouraged from taking over the $10,000 per week ketamine dealing business.

Although he was a tan, six foot, 228 pound guy pumped up on steroids and human growth hormone, Lehmann alone might not be able to pound Citranglo. So he invited along two others: Ahed Hbaiu, a 21 year old Columbia University student and drug dealer who was trying to collect $60,000 from Citranglo, and a Michigan kid named Kevin Keneuker.

Lehmann also asked his buddy Paul Brandreth to come over. Brandreth was one of Leh foot soldiers in the drug trade, a big lug who liked to brag about his bar fighting and New York Mafia connections. He stood six feet tall, weighed 240 pounds, and sported a tattoo that read “Death Before Dishonor” on his back. Between his size and his steely blue eyed gaze, he’d be helpful in the beatdown, Lehmann thought.

Shortly before noon, everything and everyone was in place at Lehmann’s two bedroom condo on Majorca Avenue in Coral Gables.

But seconds after the first punch was thrown, something went wrong. One of the guys had brought a gun, and Citranglo ended up wrapped in a tarp with a bullet hole maybe several in his body.

Once everyone realized Citranglo was dead, they rolled his body under a coffee table and covered it with a red Christmas tablecloth. “We shit our pants for a half an hour waiting to see if the police showed up or if anyone came knocking on our door,” Lehmann would later say.

Someone did knock. It was a guy named Brandon who wanted to buy two eight balls of coke. While the buyer waited, Lehmann tidily readjusted the red tablecloth so the corpse was invisible. “You couldn’t really see it, in my opinion,” Lehmann recalls. “And then again, I’m using crystal meth, so what works in a normal mind is not working in my mind at that point.”

After Brandon left, they all agreed to dump Citranglo in the Everglades. As they loaded the body into the back of a black Mercedes SUV, Lehmann was angry and scared. He remembers standing in the parking lot and saying out loud: “You fuckin’ killed him.”

Eventually, Lehmann, Brandreth, Hbaiu, and Keneuker would be charged with first degree murder. Their testimony in court papers reveals clues to South Florida’s biggest Mob murder, the background of a bust that crippled South Beach’s club drug world, and teases of information about the persistent wise guy culture that many people think disappeared from these parts long ago.

Paul Brandreth was born May 29, 1968, in Parkchester, a hardscrabble neighborhood in the eastern Bronx. The area is best known for its sprawling baseball fields and giant, fortress like, red brick high rises that once housed some 42,000 people. His family was a typical blue collar Bronx pastiche: Dad was a New York City cop, mom a nurse. Brandreth’s brother, Keith, was born in 1973, and the two were inseparable. Both boys were handsome. They looked and talked alike. Paul was more hyper; he was a blond, blue eyed bruiser who loved rough sports.

Addiction and anger ran deep in the family. Brandreth’s father beat everyone in the house, and both parents were drunks. When Paul reached tenth grade, he excelled at football and lacrosse and also took on some of his parents’ habits. He began drinking, fighting, and doing drugs. He remembers visiting his friend Brian’s house one day; the boy’s mom sold coke. She offered him a line. “That was it,” Brandreth recalls. “From there, downhill.”

These days, Brandreth is 39 years old and a prisoner in the Miami Dade County lockup. He often speaks about his life as a descent like when he describes his first arrest, a burglary, two weeks before his senior prom and graduation: “From there, downhill.” Or when, at 18, he tried his first crack rock: “From there, downhill.”

According to Brandreth, his life has moved in only one direction. He was arrested in 1990 for selling coke in New York City, which led to a six month stint in an NYC jail. Sometimes, he had sex with men in exchange for drugs or money.

Three years and several parole violations later, he was again arrested for peddling cocaine. This time, he was sent to the state lockup in Elmira. Man, you’re going with the big boys now, Brandreth recalls thinking. “I had always hoped to do better, y’know.”

In 1995, Brandreth was released after serving two and a half years. He recalls that his brother Keith, who was 22 at the time, picked him up in a Lexus. “Bro, forget about cocaine,” Keith said. “There’s this new shit; it’s called X, Ecstasy.” That night, Keith gave Paul his first hit of X and took him to the China Club, an A list joint on West 47th Street with an awesome view of Times Square. There, Paul spotted a hot girl with curly blond hair. She was wearing a tight denim minidress and Timberland boots. Her name was Effie Katanakis. She was Greek and knew Keith. She sat on Paul’s lap and later took him home. “It was a love/hate relationship,” he says.

new timberlands ACAC men’s basketball season preview

toddler timberlands ACAC men’s basketball season preview

The eminent Tuckman model for group development theorizes four phases forming, norming, storming, and performing that are all necessary and inevitable for a team to grow, develop, and ultimately produce results.

NAIT Ooks basketball coach Don Phillips is a firm believer in this philosophy.

After finishing fourth in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference North Division last season, the Ooks are favoured to finish first in 2009 10, thanks to a preposterously talented recruiting class that bore witness to its promise when NAIT defeated defending national champions Mount Royal and won the prestigious Robert Day pre season tournament two weeks ago.

“We feel like we’ve got one of, if not the most talented teams in the country,” says Phillips, beginning his second year at NAIT. “Taking that into consideration, the only thing that can stop us is us.

“If we do not develop as a team and make it through the storming stage into the norming stage, then we’re going to underachieve. But if we happen to break through that storming stage and pass through the norming into the performing stage, where you’re just playing basketball and you respect and have confidence in each other, the game becomes pretty easy and that’s when talent goes to another level.”

Returning five of their top six scorers, the Ooks must integrate a host of newcomers including Archbishop O’Leary star Alex Sherman, a pair of six foot nine posts (Daniel Perepeluk and Mitch Troock), two transfers from powerhouse Sheridan College (cousins Shane Cox and Shane Reese) and a trio of guards harvested from the fertile Ontario high school hoops landscape (Rodel Grenaway, Gerard Mozwa, Chris Neptune).

“We think we’ve addressed all the weaknesses from our team last year,
new timberlands ACAC men's basketball season preview
which is size at the guard position, size at the (power forward) position, and depth at all positions,” Phillips says.

In a bid to hold off NAIT, defending champions Concordia is getting a blast from the past, as the Thunder’s top three scorers from the 2006 07 season (Trevor Dreger, Kris Raymond, and Jason Smith) return to school after absences of a year or more. CUCA also retains four players (including Brett Kallio, who had initially committed to the University of Alberta) from last year’s ACAC finalists, while adding two transfers all star swingman Reid Fralick (King’s) and former Ross Sheppard star Andrew Champagne (University of Calgary).

“We have a lot of depth, a lot of experience, we can shoot the ball well, we’re very athletic, so I really like this team,” says Concordia coach Paul Sir.

Not to be overlooked is MacEwan, last year’s North Division runner up. Coach Ryan Dunkley’s Griffins showed strong in the Robert Day tournament, strengthened by the return of high scoring guard Gregg Frankson, who took last season off after leading MacEwan to the ACAC championship in 2008.

Elsewhere, King’s may again have to watch from the sidelines at playoff time, following a fifth place finish last season. Dan Skepple will serve as interim coach for the Eagles,

whose top holdovers include diminutive shooting guard Jeremy Barrows.

timberland desert boots Aboriginal Australians the oldest culture on Earth

timberland bag Aboriginal Australians the oldest culture on Earth

ABORIGINAL AUSTRALIANS AREdescendents of the first people to leave Africa up to 75,000 years ago, a genetic study has found, confirming theymay have the oldest continuous culture on the planet.

Professor Eske Willerslevof the University of Copenhagen, who led the study, says Aboriginal Australians were the first modern humans to traverse unknown territory in Asia and Australia. “It was a truly amazing journey that must have demanded exceptional survival skills and bravery,” he says.

A century old lock of hair, given by a West Australian indigenous man to an anthropologist, has led to the discovery that ancestors ofAboriginal Australians reached Asia at least 24,000 years beforeanother wave of migration that populated Europe and Asia.

Expertsfrom the University of Western Australia (UWA) and Murdoch Universitywere part ofan international team that analysedDNAfrom the hair, and found no hereditary material from European immigrants to Australia. This madethe man’sDNA a perfect candidate for looking at the history of Aboriginal migration.

DNA reveals new route for human Pacific migration

Aboriginal Australians first to cross Asia

Studying his DNA, the researchersfound that the ancestors of Australian Aboriginals had split from the first modern human populations to leave Africa, 64,000to 75,000 years ago. Dr Joe Dortch, ascientistat UWA, says the discoveryturns on its head the existing theory that Aboriginals arrived here less than 50,000 years ago. The findings are detailed today in thejournal Science.

“[The discovery]strongly supports the idea that Aborigines were [part of] an early and separate wave of human expansion out of Africa, before the subsequent wave that established Europeans and Asians,” says Professor Alan Cooper,
timberland desert boots Aboriginal Australians the oldest culture on Earth
director of the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA at the University of Adelaide. “However, while this is a major step forward, the key unresolved question remains the unique story of Aboriginal history within Australia.”

“This new DNA study powerfully confirms that Aboriginal Australians are one of the oldest living populations in the world, certainly the oldest outside of Africa,”agrees evolutionary biologist Professor Darren Curnoeof UNSW. “Australians are truly one of the world’s great human populations and a very ancient one at that, with deep connections to the Australian continent and broader Asian region. About this now there can be no dispute.”

Oldest living population in the world

In another study, in theAmerican Journal of Human Genetics, researchers found that when these ancestors of Aboriginals crossed through Asia, they may have interbred withSiberian people known as the Denisovans.

For that study, DNA was extracted from a finger bone excavated in the freezing temperatures of Siberia to analyse the migration of people to tropical parts of Asia and Australia more than 40,000 years ago.

Examining DNA from the finger, researchers from the Harvard Medical School in the US and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany concluded that the Denisovans a primitive group of humans descended from Neanderthals migrated from Siberia to tropical parts of Asia. They contributed DNA to Aborigines along with present day New Guineans and an indigenous tribe in the Philippines known as Mamanwa.

Aboriginal people had Siberian ancestors

To make the link between the Denisovans and indigenous Australians, thestudy looked at two Aboriginal populations, one of which was from the Northern Territory. The researchers concluded that Denisovans interbred with modern humans in South East Asia 44,000 years ago, before Australia separated from Papua New Guinea.

“This paper helped fill in some empty pieces in the evolutionary puzzle that began after early humans left Africa, and reinforces the view that humans have intermixed throughout history,” say the scientists behind the research in a summary of the findings.

“The study also confirms controversial claims that the ancestors of all living Eurasians interbred with the Neandertals, while past Asians/Oceanians also mated with the mysterious ancient humans from Denisova cave[s] in Siberia,” comments Darren from UNSW. “This is clear and independent validation of DNA work on both these extinct humans [the Neanderthals and the Denisovans],
timberland desert boots Aboriginal Australians the oldest culture on Earth
confirming today’s other big announcement about their deep connections to Australians and other indigenous people in our region.”.

timberland pro Abington Heights Teachers on Strike

timberland earthkeepers barentsburg Abington Heights Teachers on Strike

CLARKS SUMMIT Teachers in one of the largest school districts in our area hit the picket lines Tuesday morning. There is no school in the Abington Heights School District.

We found teachers picketing outside South Abington Elementary School in the Clarks Summit area Tuesday.

We found families making the best of it at South Abington Park near Clarks Summit, but they were the first to admit that a strike can be challenging for moms, dads, and students.

“I have a son that has special needs, so it’s been a little bit tricky because he has autism and we just got into the schedule of getting into school and now we’re going to have to stop and get back into the schedule again. Transitions are hard for autistic kids so it makes it a little bit trickier for him,” Sarah Sespico said.

Teachers picketed at three district buildings for a few hours in the morning before meeting in the afternoon.

Union President Tim Moher says the teachers and the administration are most at odds over paying health care premiums.

“What the school board has been proposing to us is increases to our health care costs but no salary increase. And that’s a net loss for my members and it’s just not something I can ask them to do,” Moher said.

Abington Heights Superintendent Michael Mahon says the administration is asking teachers to pay $80 a month toward health care coverage. They do not pay a monthly premium now.

The district had a $1 million deficit last year.

“The reality is that costs keep escalating, pension costs, employee costs, and a big part of the employee cost is medical benefits. So, yes, it is time for Abington Heights as a public school district to get up to date and start doing what everybody in our community has been doing for many, many years,” said Mahon.

Both sides told us they are willing to negotiate at any time but the only scheduled meeting is for September 21.

Teachers at Abington Heights could potentially strike through most of this month.

Abington Heights SD will be closed Sept. 12 as a result of the teacher union strike. The union has not disclosed the length of the strike. The Union is now stating on their facebook page that they are spending their afternoons doing community service. Curious, which is it? Is it worth having the students shuffled and families which represent your community paying daycare, babysitting, taking time off, putting jobs at risk to juggle children we expected to be in school? Sometimes you need to take a step backwards to move forward. Look at the BIG picture. Is less than $6 a week really worth it to ALL the teachers?

The kids are suffering at the price of $80/month. How do you explain to little ones and even the older children that just started that we are stopping over at the end of the day is $300 after the salary increase or $5.77 a week? These babies are so young, how do you tell a 5/6 year old why school is out and we do not know for how long? They don understand and they think they did something wrong. The commentary from parents at the bus stops and activities about children being scolded for talking about the strike in schools or being ignored when questions asked, coming off buses wondering if they did or did not have school. Some kids being bombarded with work, to compensate the workload how is this the AH way? Parents who want to advocate for their children, but have seen what has happened in the past so bite their tongues so their child does not feel the impact for their AH career. So saddened to hear and see this, this is not who or what AH is.

In today society, companies are changing insurance, pensions, 401k to name a few annually and the middle class is losing annually but they do not have the luxury to walk off the job and at the same time impact 2000 plus children and how many families, and some struggling families, we all have to continue on. We believe that the majority have the best interest of the children, while the minority have their best interest in play. They have a great thing, we all get it, but there needs to be a point where reality sets in and you realize you have to catch up with what is happening around you.

AH is the best there is no doubt, but why are not all the teachers living in the district sending their kids to AH Because they do not want to disrupt them but it is ok to disrupt our children? Can someone explain that, do you not have faith in your colleagues, after all they REALLY are the best we all agree with that!

Back to School Carnival teachers are usually seldom present and if so in small numbers, yet this year the largest teacher population is present and wearing their strike shirts, what kind of message is that to the children and community.

Graduation well at least they showed up this time nothing like those empty chairs and the people you hold in the highest regard NOT SHOWING UP. The impact to the 2018 senior class this year, APPALLING!! Yet, teachers will cross the line to coach sports, but not help your seniors or your learning support students?

How in good conscience with that all being said, are the children displaced and for some students that impact is greater than for others Is there something the community, the tax payers, the parents, the students, the board missing it is really worth impacting 2000 plus kids for $5.77/week both the Board and the Union need to get back to the tables, and not in 9 days, suck it up mend fences, and sit in a room every day if you must to get this settled to show the community you are united, your AH proud, do it for the students.

In an evolving world, where everyone pays for health insurance why should not the teachers. The conclusion is Its not about the kids and their education its about the teachers and their bottom line. I understand that they put a lot of work into what they do and appreciate what they do for our children and community, but something has to give. It 2017. Unions were around for good reasons decades ago. It not the same anymore.

There is always cyber school. I hear they have a great curriculum. cyber school I just really offended to see where my school tax dollars are going. Maybe an idea is for parents to get together and rally parents against teacher strikes . Maybe this would get some attention. Whose going to pay for my child daycare because teachers are deciding that paying a premium for their health insurance is unnecessary so they decide to strike and not having my child in school. I pay taxes to have my kids in school, not to have them not in school then pay child care on top of it.

One last comment is that if parents keep their children out of school, they are terrible parents and get reported to the district with the possibility of being reported to social services, but our teachers can strike and not have our children best interests in hand and not have repercussions.

It would be nice if all us taxpayers who have had our health insurance desimated form a picket line against the teachers! Why should they be isolated from the higher premiums, deductibles and co payments that the private sector has had forced onto them for years. The magic property tax purse has to close! Why should they get benefits that are long gone from the people asked to pay the bill to maintain the teachers benefits? We need to fight back before we can no longer afford our homes. Suck it up like the rest of us have bern doing for years!

timberland benton Abington basketball standout Eric Dixon gains national attention

The Wildcats a lot of people in my town favorite team. My town, my community was looking for it, he said. was just one of those things that I was just looking for for my community.

Dixon stressed that he still considering all the schools that are involved he mentioned Rutgers, St. Joe Villanova, Oklahoma State and Virginia as the schools in touch most often and isn in any rush to end his recruitment. In the last few months, he and his parents have visited Pitt, Penn State, Georgetown, Virginia, Oklahoma State and the local schools, taking in games at St. Joe Rutgers and Seton Hall since the season has gotten underway.

Like many high school students, Dixon said he plans on playing out his final AAU season next year and taking his official visits in the fall before a decision in the weeks leading up to his senior year. By the time next August rolls around, his list of suitors could look much different.

As Dixon recruitment went national, so did his playing opportunities. A participant in a USA Basketball mini camp last summer, Dixon was invited back to try out for the national 16 under team this past summer, where he was among the final few players cut.

One thing that isn going to change is Dixon approach to his raised profile. Abington head coach Charles Grasty is also one of Dixon teachers this year, in a business law class. In October, Dixon had to miss a few days of school for another USA Basketball mini camp, but he still came in for a half day to give a presentation in that class before his flight.

When his classmates inquired why Dixon was leaving early that day, the hoops star balked. His coach had to do the bragging for him.

Another highly touted local junior, Imhotep Donta Scott, visited the University of South Carolina, where he picked up an offer from the Gamecocks staff. A 6 7 wing with a rapidly developing skill set, he also being pursued by Temple, La Salle, St. Joe UConn and Penn State.

Wildwood Catholic guard Caleb Fields jumped on an offer from Bowling Green, committing to the Falcons on Nov. 22. The 6 1 combo guard with a smooth outside stroke had also been offered by NJIT and Binghamton and was being recruited by several other mid major schools, including Drexel.

Central Bucks West senior wing Collin MacAdams committed to D II California University (Pa.) earlier in November. A 6 5 wing, MacAdams averaged 16.2 ppg and 7.2 ppg as a junior, and is a capable scorer from all three levels.

Bishop Shanahan 2018 PF Kevin Dodds committed to D II Gannon (Pa.) on Nov. 11. A 6 6 post player with a good mid range game, Dodds was a starter on last year Shanahan team that made the Ches Mont finals and earned a spot in the PIAA Class 5A playoffs.

University of the Sciences landed a commitment from Haverford School senior point guard Kharon Randolph on Nov. 8. Randolph, a 5 11 point guard and three year starter for the Fords, had also heard from D IIs Millersville, West Chester and East Stroudsburg before making his decision.

Cardinal O point guard Antwuan Butler committed to Austin Peay in October. Quaker Valley (Pa.) Coletrane Washington spent eight years living in Germantown before moving to the western part of the state with his parents when he was in middle school.

Father Judge senior wing Tom Quarry committed to D III Johns Hopkins on Nov. 14, choosing Hopkins over Swarthmore and Ursinus. A 6 6 small forward, Quarry comes from an athletic background; his parents, Tom and Heather, were both swimmers at Temple.

timberland tan boots Abbott’s property tax plan

timberland down jacket Abbott’s property tax plan

Here at Property Tax Central, The Watchdog reads Gov. Greg Abbott’s property tax proposals. I expect them to be as boring and unmemorable as Abbott himself.

I’ve watched him for 16 years, since he became Texas attorney general in 2002. I confidently say that Abbott is smart and successful, but he’s not a risk taker. He’s rarely the first to say or do anything that puts his own neck on the line. He’s almost never surprising.

At least, in this one proposal, he’s all of the above. Oh, and I realize this is an election year ploy by a candidate to play to voters’ top concerns. But I’m judging this proposal on the basis of Abbott’s past plodding career. His is an attack upon Texas’ entire local government culture. It’s I daresay radical.

Wow No. 1

Property taxes for many homeowners are going up the maximum 10 percent a year. Abbott proposes that local governments city, county, hospital, college and school district be allowed to jump only 2.5 percent in budget growth each year. Anything above that must go to the voters.

This floors me. 2.5 percent is a pittance in the government world.

Last year, the state Senate approved a 4 percent cap; the House wanted 6 percent. They couldn’t agree. Abbott easily could have played it safe with 4, 5 or 6 percent. But he drops it to 2.5 percent, sure to incite government officials everywhere in mass protest.

And that’s what is happening. The reaction among elected officials is mostly, “How dare he? Let us do our job.”

Abbott spokesman John Wittman said,
timberland tan boots Abbott's property tax plan
“The only cynical reaction you are hearing is from bureaucrats who will have to learn to live within their means.”

This is war.

Wow No. 2

Governments could break the 2.5 percent mark for pay increases for public safety officers and teachers and work on roads and bridges. But elected officials first must approve the shattering of the cap by a two thirds super majority on their board. Then voters would have to approve the jump by that same 67 percent.

You know what? Needing 67 percent of voters to approve a tax increase is the kiss of death. Who gets 67 percent in any election, let alone for a tax increase?

Abbott is playing hardball.

Wow No. 3

As if that’s not enough, Abbott wants a voter’s ballot in a bond election to list the government’s outstanding debt and payment costs and show the proposed debt, its costs and how the borrowed money would be used. Another kiss of death.

Wow No. 4

Abbott attacks the status quo. He’s clear in his condemnation of property taxes as “remnants of an antiquated system of taxation that was necessitated because wealth tied directly to the land: farming and ranching primarily.”

The governor calls the current system “outdated” and says it has left us with a “costly bureaucracy” running “a highly inefficient form of taxation.”

Wow No. 5

Still not impressed that Abbott is stepping out of his safety zone? Here, in full, is how he attacks one of the most worshipped spending institutions in Texas lore.

“Restraining the growth of local debt, then, is key to reducing property tax burdens. In the last decade alone, at least a dozen school districts have constructed football stadiums costing tens of millions of dollars each, $500 million has been spent on indoor practice facilities, and average cost of a high school football stadium has quadrupled.”

Wow No. 6

He attacks school district staffing increases, especially those with top heavy administrations. The governor notes that there are 688,000 school employees in Texas. “It would be one thing if the vast majority of Texas public school employees were classroom teachers,” he says. But “only half are teachers.” Administrators are paid more than teachers, he adds.
