Resident fights eviction

first_imgLA PUENTE – Despite a victory in court, a La Puente woman accused of allowing drug use where she lives might still be kicked out of her apartment. A Superior Court judge last week ruled that Yolanda Ponce, a 20-year resident at Amar Plaza Apartments, could stay at her home. But the apartment’s management company, Rampart Properties, said Thursday that Ponce is not in the clear. Ponce said she has spent nine months and $4,000 fighting an attempt to evict her. She said the management company had wrongfully alleged she knew that her granddaughter was using drugs in a common area of the complex, which is located on East Amar Road. “The evidence they had against me was very weak,” Ponce said. “My granddaughter doesn’t live with me and I wasn’t the one who let her on the property. I have nothing to do with what she did.” Frank Acevedo, Rampart’s president, said that even though Ponce won her court case he has refused to accept her rent payments and plans to pursue another eviction against her. “She won this round, but the reality is we have 95 families fearful for their safety and we are trying to clean up all the drug use,” Acevedo said. “Even if Yolanda Ponce didn’t know what her granddaughter was doing, when she was told about it she didn’t do anything to prevent it from happening again.” Amar Plaza is a low-income housing project regulated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Ponce said the judge not only dismissed the eviction case but also awarded her attorney fees. Still, Ponce said she worries about her neighbors who were recently evicted. Sharon Green, who lived at the apartments for nearly 31 years, was evicted in February for failing to pay $280. Chitram Singh, who said he now lives in his car, was evicted for not paying $492. Acevedo said Green and Singh were both “overhoused” in the eyes of HUD officials because they lived in three-bedroom apartments rather than the two-bedroom apartments Rampart asked them to relocate to. “\ chose to stay in three bedrooms so the government no longer could help her and terminated her housing assistance,” Acevedo said.

MLB notes: Rangers’ Gagne throws without pain

first_imgIsringhausen was pain-free, with no mechanical issues. “I just went out there and threw the ball, and everything was in place where it was supposed to be,” he said. Rangers’ Cruz hit in head: Nelson Cruz was hit in the head by a pitch and taken to a hospital during the Texas Rangers’ 11-7 victory over Milwaukee. He was released about an hour after the game following a CAT scan and X-rays revealed he had no concussion and no fracture, team spokesman Gregg Elkin said. Cruz did have a headache. Back in ’08? Opening Day is still three weeks away and Barry Bonds already is talking about 2008. Asked whether he’d like to play next season if he’s still healthy, the San Francisco slugger responded, “sure.” Bonds hedged a bit later in the interview, but it’s clear he’s not quite ready to step away. “Let me get through ’07 first,” he said. “If I’m healthy, I’d consider coming back.” Also: Atlanta third baseman Chipper Jones sprained his left ankle on his first at-bat and was removed from a game against St. Louis. … Pitcher Greg Maddux was scratched from a scheduled start for the San Diego Padres against the Chicago White Sox because of a a mild lower abdominal strain. … New York Yankees outfielder Bobby Abreu (right oblique strain) took grounders, fly balls and threw in the field for the first time since being injured late last month. He hopes to return by this weekend. … Catcher Javy Lopez, who had been competing to make Colorado’s Opening-Day roster, was released by the Rockies. … Boston sent right-hander Nick DeBarr back to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and cut four other players from its spring training roster. … Top pitching prospect Andrew Miller was among eightplayers Detroit cut from spring training. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Eric Gagne finally felt again like he did during his dominating run as the Dodgers’ closer. Gagne pitched in a game without any pain as he faced hitters for the first time this year, throwing 11 pitches in a “B” game Monday for the Texas Rangers. The most important result for the 2003 National League Cy Young Award winner was how he felt. In a nearly empty stadium, Gagne pitched to three Milwaukee minor leaguers, throwing five strikes and six balls with his fastball in the range of 88-91 mph. There were two groundouts before a four-pitch walk on which Gagne was trying to get his curveball over the plate. Gagne described himself as “totally out of whack” with his mechanics and said it felt weird throwing to batters. “A lot of stuff wasn’t right, but overall I felt good,” Gagne said. “Right now, it’s pretty much my health I’m worried about. I’m not worried about the results. … The arm felt good, the elbow felt good and the back felt good. I’m pretty excited, pretty encouraged.” Gagne said it was the first time since late in the 2004 season that he pitched in a game without pain. Isringhausen on schedule: Jason Isringhausen is set to make his spring training debut Thursday, right on schedule. The St. Louis Cardinals closer missed the World Series after hip surgery in September. He threw to hitters on a back field for the third time and by all accounts was sharp. center_img “It’s just good to be out there, be free and not have to worry about anything but making your pitches. It’s been a while since I felt that way,” Gagne said. “It’s the best I’ve felt in two years. It’s pretty positive.” The right-hander has had three operations (two elbow, one back) since his 2002-04 stretch with the Dodgers, when he converted a record 84straight save chances. He was limited to 152/3innings the past two seasons. last_img read more

Birdifying Dinosaurs

first_img(Visited 25 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Birds and dinosaurs have oval eggs and big eyes.  Does this necessarily  mean they evolved from a common ancestor?Hopeful ovals:  Intent on evolving sparrows out of T. rex kin, some paleontologists are selectively basing arguments for common ancestry on similarities that do not seem all that impressive.  For instance, a report on PhysOrg allowed researchers from Barcelona to claim common ancestry based on oval egg shape.  “Researchers from Spain identified in Lleida a series of dinosaur eggs with a unique characteristic: They are oval in shape,” the subtitle announced.  “The discovery represents proof in favor of the hypothesis that birds and non avian theropods, dinosaurs from the Cretaceous Period, could have a common ancestor.”  The reporter later downgraded from proof to the milder phrase that it “suggests a connection with bird eggs.”  If such a shape had been found in an unrelated animal group’s eggs, Darwinists would have undoubtedly attributed it to “convergent evolution.”Peter Pan evolution: Nature on July 12 declared that “Birds have paedomorphic dinosaur skulls” (paedomorphic referring to “retaining a morphology as adults that resembles that of the juveniles or embryos of most other archosaurs”).  The team of Bullar et al. (Nature 487, 12 July 2012, pp. 223–226, doi:10.1038/nature11146) performed detailed measurements of skulls of birds and theropods, and hypothesized that bird skulls represent a stage of arrested development of dinosaur skulls.  Are they implying that a dinosaur didn’t finish maturing, and became a bird instead?  Apparently so, and don’t think for a minute that we humans are exempt from this kind of hypothesis.  They added, “Heterochrony—change in the timing or rate of developmental events—has been implicated in the evolution of major vertebrate lineages such as mammals, including humans.”They didn’t even try to hide their evolutionary dogmatism.  The first sentence begins, “Birds are living theropod dinosaurs“.  Yet they recognized the uniqueness of birds, too: “The unique bird skull houses two highly specialized systems: the sophisticated visual and neuromuscular coordination system allows flight coordination and exploitation of diverse visual landscapes, and the astonishing variations of the beak enable a wide range of avian lifestyles.”  Still, they stuck to their story that “the heterochronic process of paedomorphosis, by which descendants resemble the juveniles of their ancestors, is responsible for several major evolutionary transitions in the origin of birds,” counting at least four episodes of arrested development (except for bird beaks, which advanced beyond dinosaur developmental stages).They boasted that “Evidence for heterochrony is clear.”  The array of skull diagrams, phylogenetic trees and other scientific apparati seem convincing.  Yet to believe their hypothesis requires, first, accepting common ancestry as a given, and second, rejecting prior evolutionary theory: “Strong support for a progenetic paedomorphic origin of the bird skull seemingly contradicts early work suggesting that simple paedomorphosis in the form of having ‘retained a juvenile shape’ was not involved in the origin of the bird skeleton” – i.e., the rest of the body below the skull does not show heterochrony.  It would indeed seem strange if the skull stopped developing while the rest of the body went on to maturity.  But that’s what they suggested, tossing those hot potatoes to the references: “Cranial evolution is modular with respect to the rest of the body and it is not unusual to find divergent rates of transformation between crania and postcrania, for instance in the origins of pterodactyloid pterosaurs19 and the origin of mammals20, 21.”  Not only that, they have to explain why the beak and brain proceeded well beyond whatever evolution had cooked up for the long reign of the dinosaurs.  “In addition, birds do not have embryonic brains,” they confessed.To explain this, they came up with a novel idea for evolution: “The brain emerges in this analysis as a major driver of theropod cranial anatomy.”  Isn’t that the responsibility of mutation and natural selection?  Calling the brain a driver smirks of intelligent design, as if the evolving theropod was planning out the rest of its skeleton.  Surely that is not what they meant.  To remain consistent with neo-Darwinism, it would have to mean that brain mutations at random resulted in all the specializations enjoyed by birds: their wings, unique flight muscles, avian lungs, and modifications to every physiological system.From there, the rest of the paper collapsed into complete speculation with a series of maybes, perhapses, suggestions and imaginary possibilities:Cranial transformations driven by optic elaboration during the origin of birds parallel olfactory elaboration during mammalian origins23. The brain is an early signalling centre during facial development25 and it is possible that the posteroventral rotation of the brain is in part responsible for the collapse of the facial region in birds. Archaeopteryx-like elaboration of visually associated brain regions also appears in Eumaniraptora and may be correlated with some degree of volancy26 [i.e., gliding or flying].  Although it has been suggested that reduction in body size, which we show accompanied heterochronic transformation I, was associated with the advent of dinosaurian flight16, our results agree with work suggesting that size reduction preceded powered flight18. This reduction may, however, have been a necessary precursor to flight exapted [i.e., function not acquired by natural selection] in its service. The origin of flight was a multistep process and it remains unclear precisely when volancy and powered flight respectively originated18. Finally, the peramorphic enlargement of the premaxilla to form a long, pointed beak (Fig. 5 and Supplementary Movie) is coupled with progressive loss of manual grasping ability as digits became bound into the wing27. Modern birds are known to perform fine manipulations with the precision tips of their beaks28. It may be that the beak evolved in part as a replacement for the eponymous raptorial hands of maniraptoran dinosaurs.  [Definitions added in brackets.]In short, ascribing a few similarities in skull shape to heterochrony as an explanation for the origin of birds from dinosaurs leaves a lot of unanswered questions.The desire to force data into evolutionary stories is overpowering to Darwin disciples.  It has come to the point where they are willing to deploy the fallacy of suggestion recklessly to support their belief.  Look how many times they used it in that one paragraph above.  The sprinkling of observational data is a distraction.  Remember when 19th century evolutionists meticulously measured skulls to support their racial biases?  Evolutionists need to explain much, much more than minor changes to skull shape to make their case.  The carelessness of their hypothesis is also seen in its selective application: the eyes evolved by heterochrony, but the beak and postcranial skeleton are the opposite–they are peramorphic (advanced beyond the adult stage).  That’s a convenient dodge that makes no sense unless you start and end with assuming evolution.  If we were to apply their method as recklessly as they do, we could claim (since humans exhibit heterochrony, too), that our noses are heterochronic elephant trunks, but our femurs are peramorphic dog legs.Evolution is a gimmick where data are only props to support a belief.  You can pick props at will; use the ones that support the belief, discard the ones that don’t.  When you can’t avoid the obvious, toss your hot potatoes (difficult questions and anomalies) to other evolutionists by referring to their papers in your references.  The times we have checked those references, we find those evolutionists doing the same thing: making bold claims by the power of suggestion with little data to support it, then tossing their hot potatoes to the next guy in line.  It’s like a large circle of evolutionists tossing their hot potatoes round and round, never holding onto one long enough to show they can take the heat of serious objections.  Another trick is the futureware excuse: offer a suggestion and promise that confirmation will come with further study.  It gives the illusion of progress.  But that’s all it is—an illusion.  If you need proof, look at how evolutionists have been using this gimmick for over 150 years since Darwin taught them how to get away with it, yet they still have major unanswered questions about the evolution of anything and everything.Don’t confuse precision measurement of skulls with scientific progress.  Evolutionists need to explain every complex life form by an unguided, purposeless process of mistakes.  Evolution is NOT PROGRESSIVE.  Progress implies a goal, an end point, a purpose, a plan.  Natural selection is not progressive.  There is no selector!  That is the personification fallacy.  A selector implies purpose, choice, plan, a goal.  The adaptability of living things is evidence of design, not evolution.  Why?  Because evolution, being pointless and aimless, is a restatement of the Stuff Happens Law – whatever happened, happened.  That’s an abdication of scientific explanation.  It’s a gimmick masquerading as science, as shown here.  When you remove the assumption of evolution, their research, their papers, their work collapse into a pile of non-explanations.  The assumption is the superstructure that holds the house of cards together.Exercise: Look at the indented paragraph above again.  Look for all the gimmicks that dodge explanation.  These include weasel words like suggest, may, and might and grammatical tricks like passive voice (it appeared, it originated).  Cross out any sentences that use these gimmicks.  Next, cross out any sentences or clauses that assume evolution is true.  See if there is anything left.  If there is, evaluate its connection to actual scientific observation, and see if it necessarily supports evolution, or might better support intelligent design: i.e., one sentence that might remain is, “Modern birds are known to perform fine manipulations with the precision tips of their beaks.”last_img read more

Record Bafana win in Mokoena’s 100th

first_imgMomentumCaptain Aaron Mokoena, who during the game wore the number 100 on his back, said it was important to win and retain the momentum that Bafana Bafana has built up through 11 matches – six wins and five draws – without defeat. Guatemala’s skipper Guillermo Ramirez took on the responsibility of taking the spot kick, but he was denied by Moneeb Josephs, who made a smart save to preserve Bafana’s clean sheet. He beat two players and then, shooting from 25 metres out, blasted the ball across the face of goal and into the top corner of the net to put a fitting exclamation mark on Bafana’s big win. 1 June 2010 Inspired decisionCoach Parreira introduced Surprise Moriri at the start of the second half and it proved to be an inspired decision as Morori struck from close range after being set up by Katlego Mphela. Defender Carlos Gallaerdo headed wide for Guatemala after a quarter-of-an-hour, but South Africa was in charge and coach Parreira’s charges went two goals up after 26 minutes when midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane netted. South Africa’s previous biggest victories were a recent 4-0 win over Thailand and a 4-0 success against Chad in 2007. “We made it easy for ourselves by scoring goals and we are on the right track,” he added. Just two minutes later, Guatemala had a good opportunity to pull a goal back when Thwala was blown up for handling the ball in the area. Like the referee’s first penalty award, it was a doubtful decision. Bafana Bafana recorded their biggest international win yet when they thrashed Guatemala 5-0 at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Monday night. It was a fitting celebration for captain Aaron Mokoena, who became the first South African footballer to win 100 international caps. GoalSouth Africa’s effort on Monday night was helped by the referee in the 10th minute when he awarded the hosts a penalty for a hand ball. It seemed a harsh decision, but Katlego Mphela wasn’t about to second guess the ref and slotted the kick to put Bafana into an early lead. Good attitudeCoach Carlos Alberto Parreira said Bafana were not as good as they were technically in their draw with Bulgaria. Colombia, he said, was the side’s most difficult game so far, but he liked the attitude of the team against the 114th-ranked Guatemalans. Second penalty nettedOnly five minutes after that, in another questionable decision, the referee awarded a third penalty in the match, deeming Gustavo Cabrera to have handled the ball in the box. Mphela again stepped up tothe mark and once more buried the ball in the back of the net. Referring to the announcement of the final World Cup squad of 23 player, due early on Tuesday morning, he continued: “We know all the players we need by now. It’s a daily assessment and we’re not going to judge a player on one match.” Bafana were comfortably in charge of proceedings, but failed to add to their first half tally, although Siphiwe Tshabalala came close with a powerful strike that flew wide of the mark. Substitute Bernard Parker then added South Africa’s fifth goal eight minutes from time with a superb solo effort. Midfield ace Steven Pienaar came close to increasing Bafana’s lead when he struck a powerful shot from distance, but it was kept out by the woodwork. Parreira was questioned about striker Benni McCarthy, who stayed on the bench throughout the match. “There’s nothing wrong with him,” he said. Left-back Lucas Thwala, heeding a call by Parreira after Bafana’s previous game against Colombia for more attacking play from the wing-backs, ventured forward and after a strong run crossed for Letsholonyane. The Kaizer Chiefs’ man met the ball on the volley and beat goalkeeper David Guerra all ends up. Guatemala’s caretaker coach Francisco Melgar opined that the South African team is ready and well capable of defeating Mexico in the opening match of the World Cup.

South African men pledge to stand up against abuse

first_img24 November 2015She was encouraged by the growing number of men who were getting involved in the fight against the abuse of women and children, said the Minister in the Presidency responsible for Women, Susan Shabangu, speaking at an International Men’s Day event in Soshanguve, Tshwane on 21 November.Bishop @PeMkhize attending International Men’s Day programme with Minister Susan Shabangu pic.twitter.com/lpGjBqmF8q— Faith Center Malvern (@FaithCenterJhb) November 19, 2015The minister, along with First Lady Tobeka Zuma, urged men to get involved in the 16 Days of Activism campaign and create a culture in which women and children were protected and could feel safe.International Men’s Day is an annual event observed in November. It is designed to focus on men’s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality and highlighting positive male role models. It is also an opportunity for men to celebrate their contributions to the community, family, marriage and child care.Our bishop @PeMkhize with some of SA Men on the year nominees and Minister Susan Shabangu pic.twitter.com/4elEAIlFn5— Faith Center Malvern (@FaithCenterJhb) November 19, 2015Shabangu said while men were primarily looked up to as the nurturers of boys, women should also be involved. Both parents had the responsibility of raising children.Zuma said men must be part of the solution to end the abuse of women and children. “Not reporting abuse means you are part of the problem,” she said. The first lady also called on fathers to spend more time talking to their sons about gender violence and teaching them to respect women. “Fathers should not only spend time reading newspapers. They should give themselves time to spend with the boy child. Real men don’t abuse.”Men who attended the event said that they were determined to work together with women to fight against gender violence as well as play their part in encouraging others to do the same.Ephraim Baloyi, who attended, said he was positive about the role women played in society, and that they should, along with children, be protected at all costs. “Men,” Baloyi said, “are supposed to love and take care of their families. They should not abuse their children. Men who abuse their wives and children should be locked up in jail.”The minister also called on police officers to take the plight of men who were being abused just as seriously as that of women and children. “We are all human beings. We all feel the pain, and we all must be protected,” she said.The International Men’s Day celebration and awareness campaign is part of the South African government’s theme for #16Days, #CountMeIn: Together Moving a Non-Violent South Africa Forward.Source: South African Government News Agencylast_img read more
