Women sues Inglewood police over alleged rape

first_imgBy The Associated Press A Florida woman who claims she was raped by an Inglewood police officer sued department officials, contending the department’s policies created an “unrestrained, undisciplined and out of control” atmosphere, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in federal court, contends that the 23-year-old woman was in town to visit relatives on Dec. 15 when she was stopped by two officers while walking to a fast-food restaurant. The officers accused her of being a prostitute and followed her back to her motel, where according to the suit, one officer insisted that she take him to her room and forced her to have sex. No criminal charges have been filed in the case but the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office was investigating her claims. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jose Mourinho explains why Bastian Schweinsteiger has returned to training

first_imgJose Mourinho has explained the recalling of Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United first-team training as a ‘human’ decision.The German midfielder has not been part of Mourinho’s plans since the Portuguese’s appointment as head coach over the summer, and the club even wrote him off as an asset in their latest published accounts – stating he was ‘a player no longer considered to be a member of the first team playing squad’.And this still rings true, even though he is back working with Mourinho and the senior players in training at United’s Aon Training Complex in Carrington, having originally been banished to work with only the youth and reserve squads.Mourinho, speaking ahead of the Red Devils’ Europa League clash against Fenerbahce, revealed he has brought Schweinsteiger back into the fold to make up the numbers in training – a ‘human’ decision for a player who has been nothing but a professional despite being cast out.His return also allows him to work his way up to full fitness, with Mourinho making it clear this is to ensure the German is ready to play first-team football – should he leave Old Trafford in the January transfer window.“It is a decision based on the fact that we are in a period in the season where it is really difficult to train with everybody together,” Mourinho said.“The tactical work I like to do with 20 or 21 players, so to have 23 or 24 together at the same time, that situation doesn’t happen anymore because in this moment, the next day after we play, the players who played, they train in a separate group and do a specific recovering session.“So instead of 23 or 24, it becomes 13 or 14, and with injuries sometime 10 or 11.“Many times we go to the academy to bring in some young boys to have a group with the perfect numbers.“Looking at Bastian and the way he was working professionally, every day with the fitness coach, we think it is a human decision and a professional decision to bring him back to the team and he will be much better prepared and in much better condition in case his future decision is to leave the club. He will be much better prepared to go direct to competition.”Despite the hints that Schweinsteiger’s recall is not a route back into competitive action for the 32-year-old, Mourinho did admit the German could become an ‘option’ should United be hit hard by injuries in the coming months.The manager added: “If he stays with us, he becomes one more option. In this moment we have no problems in midfield, like we have in defence, but if one day we have problems in midfield, he will be one more option for us.“It is a human decision based on training numbers and methods, but also a decision that can be positive for the group. It is a good decision for us and for him.” 1 Bastian Schweinsteiger has been recalled to Manchester United first-team training last_img read more

first_img29 July 2014State logistics company Transnet officially opened a R30-million wagon refurbishment facility in De Aar in South Africa’s Northern Cape province on Monday.The De Aar wagons depot will maintain various types of wagons for Transnet Freight Rail, functioning as a satellite workshop for the Transnet Rail Engineering Beaconsfield Depot in Kimberley.Speaking at the opening, Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown said the investment was aimed at increasing Transnet Freight Rail’s capacity on the main freight corridor between Johannesburg and Cape Town.This facility has already created jobs and improved rail engineering skills in the area, Brown said, adding that 47 people, 22 of them from De Aar, had already been employed, and that an estimated 300 direct and indirect jobs would be created through this facility.“Government is committed to revitalising the economy of rural towns such as De Aar, so that we create sustainable livelihoods for the local people,” Brown said. “A wagon refurbishment facility will have a long-term impact not only on De Aar but surrounding areas, as it will be a springboard for development within the broader Northern Cape province.“The establishment of such a facility brings hope to the youth of De Aar to become engineers and better their lives.”After the opening, Brown and Northern Cape Premier Sylvia Lucas handed over two new houses to families who agreed to make way for Transnet’s new Youth Multi-Purpose Precinct next to the De Aar Rail Station.The youth precinct comprises a youth shelter for 20 homeless boys, a youth educational centre, a recreational park and a social club for youth volunteers.The Transnet Foundation will fully fund the De Aar Youth Precinct NGO for the first three years (2014, 2015 and 2016).

LP Associate Stabbed at Store Dies from His Injuries

first_imgThe Kmart employee who was stabbed in Visalia, California, died from his injuries Friday morning. 31-year-old Jeff Campbell passed away a day and a half after he was stabbed in the neck and chest while escorting a customer out of the store. The suspect, identified as 43-year-old Jeremy Kechloian had been acting strangely inside the store, so he was asked to leave. For unknown reasons, he stabbed Campbell, a loss prevention associate, near the store’s exit. A Kmart representative said in part quote: “We are deeply saddened to hear that our associate, Jeffrey, has died. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time.” Kmart says they are providing counseling to other store employees. An unidentified store employee says Campbell hadn’t worked at the store for very long but was known as a nice guy, who didn’t deserve what happened to him. Hours after Campbell died, the Tulare County District Attorney’s office filed murder charges against Kechloian. He also faces two more felony charges relating to his fight with Visalia Police officers at their headquarters after he was arrested Wednesday night. Kechloian is being held without bail and will be back in court later this month.  [Source: ABC30 Action News] Stay UpdatedGet critical information for loss prevention professionals, security and retail management delivered right to your inbox.  Sign up nowlast_img read more

ECM: Destroying the American System of Justice

first_img“The failure of business to adopt enterprise content management is destroying the American system of justice,” says attorney Ralph Losey.  Losey says that many companies today when confronted with allegations simply decide to pay to cough up a settlement fee, rather than to even attempt to defend themselves, because of the huge sums that are needed for the e-disovery component of the defense.Litigants today spend, on average, $10 million per lawsuit in e-discovery costs.  Fannie Mae, for example, was supoenaed to deliver all documents that contained any from a list of 400 keywords.  That resulted in them searching for and turning over 660,000 emails at a cost of $6 million.  Review costs typically range from $3 to $10 per file.ECM could certainly be used by these companies to drive down the costs involved in the discovery process.  The money saved on a single lawsuit, had companies been more proactive, could easily have been better used to have put into place a sophisticated content and data management software.  And those ECM system can deliver benefits that extend well beyond being prepared for a request for e-discovery.last_img read more

Budget Chaos at NASA After Mixed Signals From Congress

first_imgConflicting guidance from Congress could result in NASA’s spending $500 million on a rocket program that is due to be canceled. Last week, the NASA inspector general reported that the problem stems from new orders to the agency to replace the Ares I rocket program with one that incorporates many of the elements in the Constellation program begun under President George W. Bush. The changes, part of a law that went into effect in October, were seen as a compromise that mollified fans of the human spaceflight program while including reforms that the White House had sought. But since lawmakers have delayed passing a 2011 budget, the report says, the agency must continue to pay for the original rocket program, leading to considerable waste. The problem is that the so-called continuing resolution, which keeps spending at 2010 levels at least until March, also requires agencies to continue virtually all programs. While 2010 appropriation documents instructed NASA to continue with the Constellation effort, the October law, known as a reauthorization, calls it instead a “Space Launch System” (SLS) although the requirements are similar.

That news came in a report from NASA to Congress required by the October law, which lays out NASA’s priorities. That law had specified that the first flight of the SLS should occur in 2016. “A first flight this early does not realistically appear to be possible based on our current cost estimates … and given the levels proposed in the Authorization Act,” NASA said in the report. That conclusion has infuriated a number of powerful lawmakers. “NASA throws their hands in the air and claims it is unaffordable without providing a single piece of evidence that brings truth to their conclusions,” said Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), ranking member of the spending panel that oversees NASA and a patron of the large NASA facilities in his state . “The language is clear–NASA has evaluated 2000 vehicle concepts over the past decade, and the rocket scientists and engineers have picked the design and are ready to proceed. Instead, NASA continues to further delay.” Meanwhile, scientists at the agency who are working on the Constellation effort feel frustrated, says physicist Sheila Bailey of the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Even Bailey’s work on advanced solar cells, which is funded by the Air Force, is affected by the uncertainty. “If you don’t know how much you’re getting next year, you don’t know what program to do, or how to prioritize,” Bailey adds. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much confusion in terms of projects, and priorities, and where we’re heading.”last_img read more

Tottenham Hotspur need big away wins for title tilt: Harry Kane

first_imgTottenham Hotspur need to start beating the Premier League’s top teams away from home if they are to mount a serious title challenge this campaign, striker Harry Kane said ahead of Saturday’s trip to Arsenal.Despite their progress under manager Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham have won just once in 16 away league games against Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal under the Argentine, a 2-1 triumph over City in 2016.Tottenham beat United, City, Chelsea and Arsenal at home last season, and drew with Liverpool, but their away record against the same opposition was underwhelming and Kane has urged his team to avoid a repeat of those results.??? Important information for fans attending tomorrow’s #NorthLondonDerby and travelling through King’s Cross Station – https://t.co/wh5PDMd0Kj pic.twitter.com/xG86eqrexo- Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) November 17, 2017″It’s important for us to start beating the big teams away. Not just Arsenal, but all of the top six,” Kane told Sky Sports.”We’ve done very well at home against them in recent years, but if we want to be challenging for the title, these are the games we need to win away from home.”We’re going to try and win the game, we always do, but it will be tough. We need to go and play the way we play against them at home, and find a way to win.”Tottenham, who are third in the table, suffered their most recent away defeat against a top six side at second-placed United last month but both teams headed into the international break level on 23 points, eight points behind leaders City.advertisementSpurs midfielder Eric Dier and playmaker Christian Eriksen captained England and Denmark respectively during the break and Pochettino believes that players developing their leadership skills will benefit the club in high-pressure games.”That is so important for us. We need to create leaders, not followers and it’s so important for them to feel that experience, to manage, be leaders and to be responsible,” Pochettino told the club’s website.

Rohit vs Bravo, Raina vs Malinga: CSK vs MI promises to be a blockbuster clash

first_img Ajay Tiwari ChennaiApril 26, 2019UPDATED: April 26, 2019 19:50 IST IPL 2019: Hardik Pandya looks like a man on a mission this season (Courtesy BCCI)HIGHLIGHTSEarlier in the 2019 IPL, Mumbai Indians snapped Chennai Super Kings’ 3-match winning streakDhoni has led CSK to 3 IPL titles – a feat only matched by his counterpart in the MI campMalinga will be up against one of CSK’s batting mainstays over the years in Suresh RainaCrowd favourites and 3-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are set to host Mumbai Indians, their most formidable opponents at the Chepauk tonight at Chepauk. The clash, which has already attained the status of ‘El Clasico’ of the IPL, more often than not throws up a number of interesting battles between the superstars present on both sides.Earlier in the 2019 IPL, Mumbai Indians snapped Chennai Super Kings’ 3-match winning streak. Here’s a look at the key battles to look out for as CSK host MI in Round 2 of what could be an exciting clash:1. Chahar vs ChaharDouble first cousins Deepak and Rahul Chahar have come a long way from playing cricket together in the bylanes of Agra to the most prestigious T20 tournament in the world right now. But tonight in Chennai one should rest assured that as any sibling rivalry goes, Deepak and Rahul will be trying to outdo each other by any means possible to help their teams’ case.While Deepak has been a revelation in IPL 2019 with 14 wickets at an excellent economy rate of 6.95 his younger cousin is not far behind with 9 wickets from just 7 matches at a miserly economy of 6.61. Both are currently the second-highest wicket-takers for their respective teams and would want to reclaim the top spot tonight. Sadly, only one would end up on the winning side.2. Slinga vs Run MachineLasith Malinga might not be the enforcer he was in his heyday but the Sri Lankan toe-crusher is already an IPL legend. He has taken the most wickets in the history of the Indian Premier League (162). This season he has picked up 8 wickets in 6 matches at a strike-rate of 16.62 but he has been expensive as the economy rate of 9.02 suggests.advertisementMalinga will be up against one of CSK’s batting mainstays over the years in Suresh Raina, who has been in a tussle with Virat Kohli for the leading run-scorer in the IPL. Raina has been a prolific run-scorer for CSK over the years with a total of 5230 runs at a healthy strike-rate of 137.59. However, like Malinga, Raina too has found the going a bit tough this year with 245 runs in 11 matches at an average of 24.50 and a strike-rate of 121.89.Both these stalwarts would be looking for redemption no matter the larger battles at stake and whoever comes out trumps could not just decide the fate of the match but also their team’s fortune in the IPL 2019.3. Who will be the ‘Champion’ of all-rounders?At more than 35 years of age, Dwayne Bravo is in the twilight of his cricket career. But the ‘Champion’ all-rounder takes a lot of pride in wearing the Yellow jersey as has been evident by his 9 wickets from 6 matches at an excellent strike-rate of 13.44.He will be up against Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who despite having a difficult time in the recent past, has shown glimpses of his raw talent in IPL 2019. Pandya is the third-highest scorer for his team this season with 241 runs at an average of 40.16 and an excellent strike-rate of 189.76. Adding the 8 wickets he has taken for MI to this tally, it looks like Pandya is finally owning up the role everyone has been expecting him to since his debut.Though Pandya edges ahead of Bravo in batting terms, the West Indian has the knack of surprising many at regular intervals – just like he does with his slower balls.Note: MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja’s absence will be a big blow for CSK on Friday as they look to seal their spot in the playoffsAlso Read | The MS Dhoni connection with the Parags: From Ranji Trophy 1999 to IPL 2019Also Read | Rohit Sharma says CSK vs MI is El Clasico of IPL.
