Therefore, large glass walls provide a tenuous frontier between the inside of the house and the garden patio, because all of this is the house. There are four bedrooms, a large lounge and kitchen, but there are also small, discreet patios and the large garden patio arranged around the pool.

WW photo: Bryan G. PfeiferMilwaukee — Outraged community members are responding with ongoing protests to a Jan. 10 announcement by Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chrisholm that he would not file criminal charges against three white men who killed Corey Stingley, a 16-year-old African-American, in 2012. Since the announcement, a series of community protests have occurred, statements have been issued and further protests are planned.“Like the murder of Trayvon Martin, this is the continuation of an unjust and shameful system of criminal injustice which regards Black lives as more threatening and less valuable than white lives,” said Mike Wilder, co-director of the African American Roundtable, in a statement released Jan. 14.‘The murder’ of a sonFamily and supporters of young Stingley held a press conference Jan. 15 at the Center Street Library in Milwaukee, calling for a federal investigation into his death. Stingley was removed from life support on Dec. 29, 2012, two weeks after being wrestled to the ground and choked by three older white men — Jesse Cole, Robert Berringer and Mario Lauman — in a suburban convenience store in West Allis, a subur west of Milwaukee. The men who killed claimed to have been conducting a “citizen’s arrest” after Stingley returned alcohol he had allegedly considered taking on Dec. 14.Craig Stingley, father of Corey Stingley, demands justice for his son at Milwaukee County Safety Building, Jan, 17.Photo: Occupy RiverwestTory Lowe, who chaired the press conference, compared the killing of Stingley to the deaths of other Black youths, such as Trayvon Martin, at the hands of police or racist vigilantes. After Lowe named Derek Williams, who died in police custody in 2011, and Daniel Bell, who was shot in the back by police in 1958, audience members spontaneously shouted out the names of other young Black men, many their own relatives, who were killed by Milwaukee police.Craig Stingley, Corey’s father, demanded the resignation or voting out of office of Chisholm, whom he called “incompetent.” He said Chisholm’s decision is a travesty of justice. Chisholm has not shown the family his report and has tried to prevent them from independently investigating what Stingley called “the murder” of his son. “We have not been represented,” he said.Stingley displayed his son’s death certificate, took spectators scene by scene through a surveillance tape showing how his son was put in a headlock and violently thrown to the floor, and reported what he had learned from witnesses in his own investigation. He said his son’s doctors told him “his brain died from the top down” after a “sudden, violent event” that cut off the blood supply.The day after the press conference, the Milwaukee Medical Examiner ruled Corey Stingley’s death a homicide.Bring racist killers to justiceThe press conference was followed by a protest rally at the Milwaukee County Safety Building Jan. 17. Despite bitterly cold, below-zero weather in the midst of a snow storm, more than 100 people participated. They demande Stingley’s three killers be brought to trial immediately, that Chrisholm resign, and that the U.S. Justice Department investigate the killing.People came to the rally from around metropolitan Milwaukee and northeastern Wisconsin. Many organizations were represented, including the National Black United Front, the Latin American Solidarity Committee, The Justice Coalition, Occupy Fond du Lac, Occupy Milwaukee, Occupy Riverwest, Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement, Wisconsin Jobs Now and Workers World Party.On Jan. 18, U.S. Department of Justice officials said they will “review” matters involving the death of Stingley. In a written statement, U.S. Attorney James Santelle claimed Stingley’s family has so far not provided sufficient evidence to suggest possible civil rights violations. Santelle said that his office would review Stingley’s death to determine if an “investigation is warranted, without any present commitment to or plan for prosecution.”A community meeting is planned on Jan. 23 at the African-American Women’s Center, 3020 West Vliet St. in Milwaukee at 5:30 p.m. to discuss ongoing protest activities.To demand justice for Corey Stingley, contact the Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm at 414-278-4630 or [email protected] FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Days of Action demand end to blockade of Cuba.Washington, D.C. — The 2018 Days of Action to End the U.S. Blockade of Cuba concluded here on Sept. 28. The week’s program included an afterschool discussion in a Washington, D.C., high school; meetings at two local universities; visits to congressional offices; discussions on two popular, progressive radio programs; and two documentary films at a downtown multiplex cinema, which drew a full house.One film was a timely new production, “¡Lucha Sí!,” about the struggle for public education in Puerto Rico. The other was “Maestra,” the story of Cuba’s 1961 literacy campaign. These movies, viewed side-by-side, zero in on an essential difference between capitalist and socialist economic systems through the lens of education.Jinnette Morales Díaz, one of the three women directors of “¡Lucha Sí!,” traveled from Puerto Rico for the discussion. Her daughter attends a special-needs program that was at risk of closing after Hurricane María struck, but was saved when Morales took the extreme measure of going on a hunger strike to demand the school reopen.Tears came to Morales’ eyes when she learned about Cuba’s enormous campaign and struggle to teach people to read and write in the early years of the revolution. Now, in the 21st century, Puerto Rico is fighting to keep schools open. Meanwhile, the powerful U.S. tries to make education a business.Jennifer Wager, another director of “¡Lucha Sí!,” spoke also as a teacher whose New Jersey school had been threatened with closing. Wager also directed last year’s “Dare to Dream,” about U.S. students at Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine. She called for international solidarity to help Puerto Ricans defend their education system.The audience received a special treat when Norma Guillard, who was in town visiting friends, joined the after-film question-and-answer period. Guillard is one of the women in the film “Maestra,” who shares her experiences as a 15-year-old during the 1961 literacy campaign and discusses the campaign’s impact on her later life.Guillard’s careers included teaching mathematics, learning the Russian language and becoming a psychologist — all through Cuba’s education system.Guillard commented on the shared colonial history of Puerto Rico and Cuba, saying that in the Caribbean those islands are regarded as two wings of the same bird. In the case of education, one wing is broken, while the other — the Cuban wing — is strong and soaring high. In 1959, the Cuban revolution broke the island free from U.S. imperialism.Catherine Murphy, writer and director of “Maestra,” moderated the panel. Murphy participated in many of the week’s community engagements, sharing knowledge she’d gained from more than a decade of work on the film.The literacy campaign shown in “Maestra” developed into an adult literacy teaching model “Yo Sí Puedo” (Yes I Can). It’s now used in 30 countries to teach how to read in many languages, including Indigenous languages and English. The late Dr. Leonela Relys Díaz, who was a 14-year-old brigadista during the 1961 campaign, led the development of a radio literacy program in Haiti. Then, at the request of historic Cuban leader Fidel Castro, she worked to adapt this program for television.Two doctors from the U.S. who are graduates of Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine contributed to the week’s theme. “In Cuba, education is a national priority. In the U.S., education is under attack,” stated Dr. Elizabeth Arnold and Dr. Eduardo Alvarado. Instead of learning in the competitive system practiced in the U.S., they learned medicine through the Cuban teaching model, where the goal is for everyone to succeed.The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity initiated the 2018 Days of Action, its fourth such effort in Washington, D.C. This work was spearheaded in the U.S. by Alicia Jrapko. The committee aims, first of all, to reach out to new audiences about Cuba’s contributions and the need to end the U.S. genocidal blockade. Short summaries and photos of the 2018 events are posted on its website: tinyurl.com/y7nj5ljd.The movie “Maestra” is now available with your library card through the free streaming service Kanopy.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Single Bench of Justice Rekha Palli has also asked the Delhi Government to follow its protocol of testing and surveillance as per the guidelines and take appropriate action if any new case is reported. The order has come in a writ petition filed by a resident of a society which was notified as containment zone to to de-seal the entire containment zone area of the said Society of the i.e. DG-3, Vikaspuri, New Delhi with immediate effect. The Petitioner had submitted that the last known four positive cases of Covid-19 in the said society were detected on 11/13.05.2020. All these four persons were issued a certificate by the concerned Medical Officer that they stand discharged from home isolation from 29.05.2020. The Petitioner further submitted that the Respondents have wrongly stated in their communication that there are seven positive cases of COVID 19 in the society whereas only four residents of the society were found to be COVID positive and they too stand fully recovered now. In addition to this, the Petitioner contended that in spite of there being no active cases in the petitioner society for the last many days, the respondents are erroneously continuing to treat the entire society as a containment zone causing grave inconvenience to the residents. Mr Anupam Srivastava, who appeared for the Delhi Government, submitted that the government acted strictly in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, which has, from time to time prescribed the containment plan. Mr Srivastava further submitted that insofar as petitioner’s grievance regarding there being only four cases as against seven cases of COVID positive patients as referred to in their communication by the respondents, a corrigendum has already been issued on 07.06.2020 clearly stating that there were only four positive cases of COVID-19 were detected in the society. It was also submitted by Mr Srivastava that the restrictions will be duly scaled down and only surveillance and further testing as will be required, will be carried out w.e.f. 11.06.2020. As a consequence of the scaling down, the movement of the residents of the society will be as per the guidelines issued by the Government of India and the restrictions as applicable to containment zone will no longer be applicable to them. While disposing of the petition the court asked the Delhi Government to abide by the stand taken by it before the court. The court also clarified that in case in the future any positive case of Covid-19 is detected it will be open for the government to take appropriate action including once again declaring the society as a containment zone if the need so arises.

RiverNorthPhotography/iStock(WASHINGTON) — A former Customs and Border Protection agent was sentenced to more than nine years in prison for helping smugglers get drugs across the southern border, according to a case unsealed Friday.For 10 years while still an agent, Robert Hall “facilitated the trafficking of illegal drugs, including marijuana, into the United States from Mexico on behalf of a drug trafficking organization,” the Department of Justice said.According to the Justice Department, Hall in total accepted $50,000 in cash from a drug trafficking organization “in exchange for using his position as a BPA to enable the DTO’s drug shipments to cross the border into Texas without law enforcement detection,” the DOJ said.At the time the agent was employed by CBP, he is no longer a CBP employee.Hall and his associate Daniel Hernandez gave sensitive information to a drug trafficking organization, which is not named, along the southern border, according to Hernandez’s indictment, which lists Hall as “Person A.”The two men, in exchange for payments, gave the drug trafficking organization CBP sensor locations, the location of unpatrolled roads, the number of Border Patrol agents working in a certain area and keys to gates located on the southern border.A lawyer for Hall did not comment on the case when reached by ABC News.Daniel Hernandez, who is set to be sentenced in May, is a former CBP nurse who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to bribe a public official in February.In one instance, Hernandez was paid $500 for a map containing sensor locations and a copy of a key that opened CBP locks, according to court documents.In total, Hernandez accepted $5,000 in bribes from the drug trafficking organization, authorities said.“Confronted with his regrettable mistake, Daniel has accepted responsibility,” his lawyer Nick Oberheiden told ABC News. “He is contrite and remorseful and he wants to make things right.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Crime Stoppers of Houston Announces Increased Cash Reward of up to $12,500 in case of Missing Houston Girl. #MaleahDavis https://t.co/nb7GCe9L3L— City of Houston (@HoustonTX) May 31, 2019“I appreciate those who continue to search for the missing 4-year-old, but it is time to find Maleah and bring her home,” Turner said.Maleah was last seen on April 30 when surveillance footage captured her going into her Houston home with her mother’s ex-fiancé, 26-year-old Derion Vence. Other surveillance footage from a neighbor showed Vence leaving the couple’s apartment on May 3 with his son and a laundry basket.Vence, who was caring for the Maleah while her mother was away, told police the 4-year-old was abducted by three men, including one who knocked him out during a carjacking, but Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said he doesn’t believe the story.Police found the family’s car in Missouri City, Texas, and investigators said cadaver-sniffing dogs detected the scent of human remains inside.Officers arrested Vence earlier this month on suspicion of tampering with a human corpse, according to police. Acevedo said Vence has not been cooperating with the investigation.Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 713-222-TIPS (8477). Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Palynomorph assemblages are reported from the Kotick Point and Whisky Bay formations in west and north-west James Ross Island, Antarctic Peninsula. The microfloras, particularly the dinoflagellate cyst florules, indicate an Aptian to early/mid Albian age for the Kotick Point Formation and a mid Albian to Turonian age for the Whisky Bay Formation on the basis of comparison with records from other Southern Hemisphere localities. The ages adduced broadly corroborate those previously derived from macrofaunas. The dinoflagellate cyst floras are closely comparable with those previously reported from Australasia to the extent that recognition of certain microplankton zones is possible. The miospore flora is largely composed of long ranging taxa of limited age diagnostic value. The palynoflora comprises 77 dinoflagellate cyst, 52 miospore and 7 acritarch, chlorophyte and prasinophyte taxa.
