If they successfully complete the program, their case is dismissed with prejudice, meaning that it can not be brought back up again.”Griffith said the purpose of drug court is to reduce the prison population of non-violent offenders.“These are usually first-time offenders,” he said. “Those who are selling, distributing or manufacturing drugs are not eligible for the drug court program. So, the drug program gives its participants a chance to straighten up rather than go off to prison. It’s a beneficial program all the way around.” Book Nook to reopen Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwell The 12th Judicial Circuit Drug Court of Pike and Coffee counties held its first drug court graduation ceremony on Tuesday in Coffee County with six participants graduating from the two-year program.The second graduation ceremony will be at 11:30 a.m. Monday in the main courtroom of the Pike County Courthouse. Six will graduate from the program.Drug Court Coordinator Dennis Griffith said the drug court program is a highly specialized team process with the existing Circuit Court structure that addresses non-violent, drug-related cases.

PREMIERE: MLIMA Shows Off Their Patented Mountain Groove On Disco-Funk Single “Sunshine”

Posted on by

first_imgEmerging from Denver, Colorado, rising funk-jam-rock ensemble MLIMA (pronounced-Mmm-Lee-Ma) has established itself at the forefront of the ever-emerging music scene of the Rocky Mountains. “MLIMA” is the Swahili word for Mountain, and the music has been referred to as “Mountain Groove.” Since their conception in 2012, the 6-piece has built a local fan-base through a relentless live schedule including headlining Denver’s Bluebird Theatre and Boulder’s Fiske Planetarium. MLIMA played the main stage at Arise Music Festival 2016, and the group has opened for well-known live acts like Shpongle and The Disco Biscuits at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater, as well as Praang (members of SCI), Nigel Hall (Lettuce), and more.This coming September, MLIMA will release a new EP, comprised of  7 tracks worth of original music written, recorded, and produced by the band. The album features the core band roster (comprised of vocalist Jessica Jones, saxophonist and vocalist Zach Simms, guitarist Jeph Kennedy, bassist Ryan Thrush, percussionist Jack Breitenbach, and drummer Lance Croucher) as well as Ben Rafferty on keyboards. The new MLIMA EP has been over a year in the making, featuring a unique style and sound that incorporates roots in funk, rock, jazz, soul, Afro-beat, jam, and popular culture, and compels even the most stubborn of wallflowers to head to the dance floor and bust a move. Today, Live For Live Music is excited to debut the horn-driven disco-funk grooves of MLIMA’s new single from their forthcoming EP, “Sunshine.” Comments Simms of the track, “Let it grow. Like sunshine on the radio. A song about new love and new life. Remember that even with the fear and crippling self doubt, together we can make something beautiful. Let it grow.” Check it out below:MLIMA’s upcoming EP, due out September 29th as a self-release. This is the band’s first proper release.

Astronomy Lab sees the light — and wants everyone else to, too

Posted on by

first_img Space to learn Seeing the light of independence “I have been here for 11 years, and introducing students to the telescope doesn’t get old,” says Allyson Bieryla, manager of the Astronomy Lab and Clay Telescope. “When someone sees Saturn for the first time through the telescope and shouts, ‘No way. That’s a cartoon. That’s not real. That’s so cool!’ — that instant excitement is contagious. That shouldn’t be denied to anyone.”Bieryla has, in fact, made the mission of accessibility and inclusivity a top priority, pioneering tools and redesigning space to help people with physical disabilities experience the wonders of astronomy. For instance, the lab uses a tactile printer to create a sort of topographical map of star systems that people can explore with their hands.“Think of it like Braille,” Bieryla said. “The printer produces heat and, using special heat-sensitive paper, creates images that are raised so a student who can’t see the images can feel them and understand what other students are seeing.”The printer represented the beginning of bigger efforts. With design help from Harvard science demonstrator Daniel Davis, Bieryla and Sóley Hyman ’19 built and distributed a device they created called LightSound. The devices use simple circuit board technology with sensors that convert light into sound — brighter light translates to higher pitch — to allow those with visual impairments to experience solar eclipses. The efforts of the Harvard team have been an extension of the work of the blind astronomer Wanda Diaz Merced, who pioneered “sonification” to turn data into sound. Much of Merced’s work took place at the Center for Astrophysics in 2014‒15.The first version of the device, LightSound 1.0, was used for the Great American Eclipse in 2017. For the South American eclipse last month, Hyman and Bieryla redesigned the device as LightSound 2.0, with improved sensitivity and a wider variety of sounds. The lab received a grant from the International Astronomical Union to build and distribute about two dozen LightSounds. Bieryla and Hyman shipped the devices, which cost about $60 each to build, to Chile and Argentina so the visually impaired could experience the July 2 solar eclipse in the Southern Hemisphere.,“The reception of it was very, very positive,” said Hyman, who graduated with a joint concentration in astrophysics and physics and a secondary in music. “It was really moving to hear some of the comments people had, people who were blind from birth describing how profound it was to use the device as the [eclipse] came into totality. It was exciting to see how powerful sonification can be and reminds me of how a symphony can move people emotionally.”The lab developed a second device called Orchestar that uses a different sensor to translate colored light into sound. It improves on the first by turning different colored lights into different pitches of sound. Blue light, for example, is a higher pitch, and red is a lower one. This is important because the color of a star relates to its temperature, so the Orchestar can be used to help the visually impaired understand the differences between stars. Both devices can interface with computers to collect and analyze data, and the lab has put assembly instructions for both devices, including computer code, online so anyone can build one.“Data is data, whether you plot the numbers visually or plot the numbers with sound. You are tracking the same information,” Bieryla said. “We also know that your ears can be more sensitive than your eyes, so sometimes you can pick out subtleties in the data with your ears that you might miss with your eyes.”“Sonification isn’t just a tool for the visually impaired, but for anyone to analyze data,’’ Hyman added.

Psychiatry professor criticises ‘discriminatory’ euthanasia

first_imgNewsTalk ZB 17 October 2019Family First Comment: So many great points made in this interview…. “The long and short of it is anywhere from 70 to 75 per cent of people who are actually killed, so called euthanised, in countries where it is legal are the elderly and  the poor.”  “When we talk to the elderly and the poor about why they wish to be killed or euthanised, they say they have become a burden on their families and on society, so is it really a choice.”  The research found that suicide rates have increased between five and 15-percent in countries where euthanasia is legal. #rejectassistedsuicideA professor says that legalising euthanasia has been devastating on the elderly, poor and disabled.Otago University doctors have reviewed the laws, practices and modifications in countries where it’s been introduced.Old Age Psychiatry associate professor Yoram Barak says our public debate isn’t well informed.He’s calling on psychiatrists to say ‘no’ to euthanasia.“The long and short of it is anywhere from 70 to 75 per cent of people who are actually killed, so called euthanised, in countries where it is legal are the elderly and  the poor.”Barak says the debate centres on choice, rights and dignity, but euthanasia becomes discriminatory.He says ignoring history means we’d be killing people without options.“When we talk to the elderly and the poor about why they wish to be killed or euthanised, they say they have become a burden on their families and on society, so it is really a choice.”He says the Dutch government’s considering extending euthanasia to anyone over 70 years old who feel they’ve fulfilled their role in life.The research found that suicide rates have increased between five and 15-percent in countries where euthanasia is legal.READ MORE: https://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/heather-du-plessis-allan-drive/audio/yoram-barak-psychiatry-professor-criticises-euthanasia-calls-it-discriminatory-and-contradictory/last_img read more

David Beckham reveals concerns for Unicef charity match after Paris attacks

Posted on by

first_imgDavid Beckham has revealed the charity match he helped organise at Old Trafford was cast into doubt following the devastating attacks in Paris on Friday night.129 people lost their lives, while that number is set to rise with hundreds of people injured as a result of several coordinated attacks on the French capital, including a suicide bomb outside the Stade de France during a friendly between the French national side and Germany.The former Manchester United and England captain hosted an encounter between a plethora of British legends and overseas icons, including the likes of Ronaldinho and Zinedine Zidane, in aid of Unicef.GALLERY: 10 GREAT IMAGES AS MANCHESTER UNITED LEGENDS BECKHAM AND SCHOLES STAR IN CHARITY MATCHZidane pulled out of the event prior to kick off after the horrifying scenes in his home country, and Beckham fully appreciated his ex-Real Madrid team-mate’s decision.“There was a slight concern [the game would go ahead] obviously once the news hit last night,” said the 40-year-old.“It was obviously terribly devastating to see the scenes that we all saw.“I understood why Zizou [Zidane] took the decision not to play. He was very respectful to me and everything that he’d promised to come over and play.“He’s a friend and a very passionate man and being French meant I think that what happened last night hit him very hard.“On behalf of myself, the managers and the players we all send our condolences to people who have lost loved ones in Paris and our hearts go out to the people of France.”Beckham holds Paris close to his heart after a short, but successful, spell with Paris Saint-Germain at the end of his career, while the Stade de France was also the stage for his 100th England cap.He added: “I have great memories of Paris over the years. The support that I’ve had from the French people has been incredible. It’s always been a special place.”last_img read more

Steaua boss denies ‘annihilate’ jibe came back to haunt his side

Posted on by

first_imgSteaua Buchurest boss Laurentiu Reghecampf denied a pre-match prediction from one of his players had come back to haunt them after their exit from the Europa League at Stamford Bridge.Prior to the second leg, with Steaua ahead 1-0 on aggregate, defender Mihai Pintilii said his side were looking to ‘annihilate’ Chelsea, rather than sit on their lead.But despite an impressive attacking display in the first half, the Romanian team were knocked out thanks to goals from Juan Mata, John Terry and Fernando Torres.And Reghecampf insisted defensive lapses, not over-confidence, were to blame for their defeat.He said: “The problem was moments within the game. At this level if you’re not 100% concentrating, the opposition score goals.“We conceded on our set piece but John Terry took that very well.“There were other moments – the foul on Hazard [for the free-kick for Terry’s goal] and Mata should not have been allowed to have taken the shot, but this is it at this level.“The second goal was a very crucial moment in the game.“We had an important moment in the 45th minute when we drew level. We had a few more chances but we didn’t score goals.“Congratulations to Chelsea who played very well in the second half.”See also:Blues through after second-leg comebackBenitez hails Torres after Chelsea 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Homeland Creator Says No To Militarys War On Animals

Posted on by

first_imgGideon Raff, creator and executive producer of hit series Homeland, knows that you don’t need to shoot, stab or dismember animals to produce one of the most capable fighting forces in the world.Having served as a paratrooper in the Israel Defense Forces before creating the hit TV series, he has firsthand experience.After reading PETA’s exposé about the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) participation in deadly animal-based trauma-training exercises overseas that would be illegal in the UK, Gideon penned a letter to Secretary of State for Defence Philip Hammond urging him to switch to the high-tech human simulators that most military institutions use to teach life-saving skills.“I am troubled that this violence still goes on when more humane and effective ways of training medics and doctors are available, so I have joined Peta’s campaign to end this cruel practice,” he wrote. “Caring for the wellbeing of animals and preparing the troops serving our countries are not mutually exclusive. Sparing animals pain and death in training drills means that military personnel receive better medical training and ultimately better care if they are wounded on the battlefield.”To read the letter, click here.Source:PETA UKlast_img read more
