Man sentenced to 24 years for terrorist ties

first_imgBy The Associated Press SACRAMENTO – A California man was sentenced to 24 years in federal prison Monday for attending an al-Qaida terrorist training camp in Pakistan and plotting to attack targets in the United States. Hamid Hayat, a U.S. citizen who turned 25 on Monday, was convicted in April 2006 of providing material support to terrorists and lying about it to FBI agents. Prosecutors said he intended to attack hospitals, banks, grocery stores and government buildings. Federal Judge Garland Burrell Jr. said Hayat had “returned to the United States ready and willing to wage violent jihad when directed to do so.” Hayat, clean-shaven since his trial, had no visible reaction when the sentence was read, and his family sat quietly in the back of the courtroom. His attorney vowed to appeal, and his relatives lashed out at the prosecution. “We were expecting justice. We did not get justice. My son is innocent,” said Hamid Hayat’s father, Umer. Hayat was arrested in June 2005 shortly after returning from a two-year trip to Pakistan, where prosecutors said he received terrorist training. The case began after an FBI informant befriended Hayat and began secretly tape-recording their conversations. During those talks, most of which were in Hayat’s home, Hayat discussed jihad, praised al-Qaida and expressed support for religious governments in Pakistan and Afghanistan. His trial lawyer, Wazhma Mojaddidi, has said those sentiments were nothing more than the idle chatter of a directionless young man with a sixth-grade education.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Want to be a CSI? It’s blood and guts without the glory

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson “You ask them what their science background is, and they say, ‘Oh, I don’t like science and math.”‘ Evidence technicians need an associate degree and specialized training. They can earn starting salaries of about $32,000. Criminalists, who analyze the evidence, need a bachelor’s degree in biology, chemistry or another hard science. With specialized training, they can earn starting salaries of $50,000 to $60,000. Lloyd Mahanay, senior criminalist at the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, who also teaches forensic photography at Mission College, said television dramas can be a valuable recruiting tool, even if they don’t get all the details right. “A criminalist or evidence tech does not go and interview people, we don’t hunt for the suspects, we do not arrest anybody,” Mahanay said. “The only thing we really do is go to the scene and gather evidence, and then we go back to the lab and start analyzing the different evidence.” Inspired by crime dramas like “CSI,” waves of students have enrolled in forensic science programs, but professors and police say students aren’t always aware of the realities of the job. Being a criminalist, evidence technician or a crime scene specialist requires solid math and science skills, along with the stamina to deal with decomposing bodies and other unpleasant aspects of law enforcement. California State University, Northridge, sociology professor James David Ballard, who teaches criminology and anti-terrorism classes, said he frequently sees students who think “they can walk in, get a four-year degree, walk out and be one of those pretty people on TV.” “Students come in wanting to be profilers, wanting to be criminalists, but not understanding that these positions require a science background – the physics, the biology, the hematology,” Ballard said. On television, crime scenes are processed in minutes and the suspect is caught at the end of the show. But forensic students learn that in real life, evidence collection and analysis takes much longer and requires infinite care and patience. Mahanay’s students learn the proper way to photograph crime scenes, which Mahanay recreates using dummies and theatrical blood. Two of the scenarios last semester included a woman who committed suicide by slitting her own throat and a man who jumped off a building. “Some of the (real life crime) scenes are fairly gruesome,” Mahanay said. “A lot of (students) come in and think it only happens to adults. They say, ‘I could never go to a scene where a little kid has been killed.”‘ Janis Cavanaugh, who trains students for entry-level forensic jobs at the La Puente Valley Regional Occupational Program of the Forensic Science Academy, recently put her students through an evidence-gathering exercise that had the students processing re-created crime scenes from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. And when the students were done photographing the crime scene, taking measurements and tagging and bagging their evidence, they then presented their case in a courtroom setting. “CSI” isn’t the only influence. Many students are attracted to forensics, criminal justice and law enforcement fields because they know there are jobs available and because they have a real desire to help others. Even the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, still have an effect. David Schutzer, professor of anthropology at Pierce College, who teaches an introduction to forensic anthropology class, said forensic science also can be a good career choice for women. “It’s an up-and-coming science field without a very large entrenched male old-boys network, so it’s a great place for females to get into science, because there’s no real glass ceiling that they hit.” Lisa M.

first_imgAlmost 800 pupils from a Donegal secondary school are to undertake a World Record attempt – for shuffling!Staff and pupils from the Loreto Community School in Milford will undertake the challenge at the end of this month in their school gymnasium.The pupils and staff have been undergoing a coordinated training regime under the watchful eye of dancers from Dynamic Waves dance group. On the day it is hoped the pupils of the school will ‘shuffle’ at least a minute to break the record.The shuffle is a new dance-step which is sweeping the planet!The Guinness Book of World Records usually request a member of their staff to be there to verify a world record.But on this occasion, Guinness World Record bosses say they are happy to have two members of the Gardai as independent judges. Members of the student council along with teacher Nathania McDonnell came up with the madcap plan for the ‘shuffle.’Ms McDonnell said “The Guinness Book of Records people told us we need at least 250 people shuffling but we’re going to go much bigger than that.“It’s going to be a great bit of fun but we have a bit of planning to do yet to make sure up to 800 people are all shuffling at the same time.“Most of the pupils are naturally shufflers but I think the people from Dynamic Waves are going to have their work cut out for them with some of the teachers,” she laughed.There is even a rumour that principal Andrew Kelly is going to attempt to ‘shuffle.’ DONEGAL SCHOOL ATTEMPT TO SHUFFLE THEIR WAY INTO THE WORLD RECORD BOOKS was last modified: March 1st, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Loreto Community SchoolNathania McDonnellshufflelast_img read more


first_imgMartin is a shadow of his former self!An overweight chef who shed a gut-busting five stone has revealed the secret to his weight-loss – midnight jogging!Martin Anderson, who is now known as Fat Chef Slim, has trimmed down from 19 stone 6 pounds to just 14 stone 6 pounds since January.Popular Martin, 45, from Letterkenny, admits the last straw came for him when his health insurer put his policy up by €19 a month. Martin says he was really up against it because he cooks and eats for a living.“Most chefs have to test their food al day and so they find the pounds piling on very easily if they don’t exercise.“I wasn’t exercising and eating so much food that I never stood a chance of losing weight.“So that’s when I decided that after eating and tasting food all day I had to exercise at night time. “People would pass me going home late at night and me out walking and jogging after midnight in the dark but it was the only time I got to do it,” he laughed.Martin, who runs the Crest Cookery School, has gone from size 44 trousers to where he can now fit into a size 34.He now ignores the size XXXL shirts and can pick large and even medium shirts sometimes.“I used to shop by size and it never matter what the clothes looked like or their colour. Now I can actually pick the clothes I want to wear,” he said.Martin has written a book about his slimming experiences called Fat Chef Slim – Recipes From The Journey, which will be available shortly. And he is not the first to say that “if I can do it, then anyone can.”“I just made up my mind I had enough. I think everyone who is overweight gets to that point but the secret is to keep with it.“Take one day at a time, watch what you eat and exercise. It’s not rocket science and it works. Believe me I know now,” he said.FAT CHEF SLIM LOSES FIVE STONE – ON THE RUN! was last modified: December 19th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:5 stoneCrest Cookery SchoolFat Chef SlimMartin Andersonweight losslast_img read more

If Only Green Homes Could Be Sold Like Breakfast Cereal

first_imgJust the other day, I was looking at a box of breakfast cereal. The largest lettering on the box were the three words naming the cereal: Frosted Shredded Wheat. Next in prominence came the tag line: “Contains 6 g. of fiber per serving.”You’re probably thinking, “so what?” Manufacturers of processed food make claims like this so frequently that we’ve all gotten used to them.But it is actually remarkable that marketers have concluded that the best way to sell cereal is by announcing how many grams of fiber it contains. After all, the manufacturer isn’t claiming that the cereal is delicious — just that it contains the dietary cousin of sawdust.Notice something else about this claim: it includes the abbreviation “g.” Evidently the marketers feel confident that supermarket shoppers — the same people who buy oregano and chocolate by the ounce — know that “g.” stands for “gram.” That’s good. It’s evidence that American buyers of breakfast cereal aren’t fazed by the metric system. (Could this mean that consumers will soon be comfortable with joules?)To me, this tag line — “Contains 6 g. of fiber per serving” — seems doomed to failure. But clearly, I have no background in marketing. In spite of my opinion, it is probable that this tag line is successfully moving a lot of cereal.For some strange reason, when consumers go shopping for breakfast cereal, they apparently care more about technical specifications (measured in grams, even) than they care about flavor or delight. But when the same consumers go shopping for a new home, most couldn’t care less about technical specifications. All they want to see is a three-car garage and a Jacuzzi tub.What’s going on here?Frustrated home performance contractors often recount a familiar story: homeowners will tune you… This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member?

Madhya Pradesh revokes Indore hospital licence after 11 lose sight post cataract surgery

first_imgThe Madhya Pradesh government on Saturday revoked the licence of a private hospital in Indore where 11 elderly persons, who underwent cataract surgeries on August 8, suffered significant impairment of vision due to infection. “As a result of the loss of eyesight of 11 patients who underwent cataract surgeries at your hospital on August 8, this is to inform you of the cancellation of your licence under Section 6(1) of the Madhya Pradesh Upcharyagriha Tatha Rujopchar Samabandi Sthapnaye (Registrikaran Tatha Anugyapan) Adhiniyam, 1973,” District Chief Medical and Health Officer (CMHO) Pravin Jadia wrote in a letter addressed to the Director of the Indore Eye Hospital.District Collector Lokesh Kumar Jatav, however, told The Hindu that the patients had not lost their sight completely but were suffering from ‘blurry vision’ due to infection after the surgeries. “They have been shifted to the best eye hospital in the city and will undergo corrective surgeries. A team from Sankara Nethralaya from Chennai will perform the procedure. At this stage, we don’t know what caused the infection.”Under the Union Health Ministry’s National Programme for Control of Blindness, 14 persons aged between 45 and 85, 10 from Dhar district and four from Indore, underwent the surgeries on the day. Later, 11 of them complained of blurry vision. They have been shifted to Choithram Hospital and Research Centre in the city. The private hospital had conducted 386 cataract surgeries under the programme from April to August 8. A three-member team comprising the Additional District Magistrate (ADM) and two government ophthalmologists had been constituted to inquire into the case, said Mr. Jatav. A district health official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said, “Private hospitals get paid on the basis of the number of successful surgeries.”Meanwhile, Chief Minister Kamal Nath announced a compensation of ₹50,000 for each of the affected persons. “Our priority is to save their vision at this point,” Jitu Patwari, Higher Education Minister, told reporters. “The operation theatre has been sealed. Those responsible for negligence will be punished. Even the doctor who underestimated the extent of the infection will be punished.”The issue came to the notice of the authorities after Dr. Sudhir Mahashabde of the hospital wrote to the district blindness control society about it, said Mr. Jadia. Mr. Nath tweeted: “How the hospital was granted permission despite an incident there nine years ago, we’ll investigate it and take action against the accused.”In 2010, the hospital was in the dock when 18 patients who underwent cataract surgeries there lost their vision. However, surgeries were resumed following a six-month suspension period.last_img read more
