Responding officers spotted 37-year-old Ja Mail Lewis’ car stopped on the shoulder near Exit 39 on the LIE and investigated the call, police said.The officers, police said, determined that he was intoxicated and placed him under arrest.Lewis was charged under Leandra’s Law for aggravated driving while intoxicated. He was also charged with driving while ability impaired combined influence, driving while ability impaired by drugs and driving while intoxicated.Jeffrey Reynolds, the executive director of Long Island Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence (LICADD), credited the teen for taking initiative and calling police.“Each and every day there are countless young people on Long Island who cower in the back seats of cars unsure about what to do when a parent or family member is driving under the influence,” he said in an email.“Leandra’s Law was a great step in the right direction,” he added, “but we need to do a better job of educating young people about how to handle those situations and empower more of them to speak up for their safety.”Lewis will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Thursday.last_img read more

The first day of business for the burger chain is scheduled for Thurs, Jan. 23.The groundbreaking ceremony was held last March, however, construction efforts were stalled for months causing residents to question when the franchise would open.

USC program addresses sexual violence

Posted on by

first_imgFollow us on Twitter @dailytrojan Recruiting has started for S.A.F.E. T-Alliance, a campus-wide program set to launch next spring by the USC Center for Women and Men, which aims to make the USC campus and community safer through awareness of gender-based violence.The program will also provide aid and support to members of the USC community who have been victims of gender-based violence, such as stalking, dating violence, sexual assault and sexual harassment.“The hope … is to feel safe and connected to each other, to feel responsible to ensure one another’s safety. It creates more cohesion. We are already a Trojan Family, this is just another way to enhance that and to support someone, should something happen,” said La Shonda Coleman, the director of S.A.F.E. T-Alliance.In addition, the S.A.F.E. T-Alliance will launch a leadership program for students, aimed to facilitate peer education. Thus far, there are two types of positions a student can apply for: a tier one safety liaison or a tier two safety leader.“A safety liaison has a basic knowledge of issues, campus issues and resources,” Coleman said. “They represent a group or organization on campus and keep us connected and establish a relationship with that group.”Liaisons will receive training through multiple external organizations, such as Peace Over Violence and the Rape Treatment Center, to learn how to deal with issues of common gender violence. The students will also be familiarized with the local resources such as the Dept. of Public Safety’s procedures.“We understand the importance of outside agencies and how their input is valuable. It is truly collaborative — that is the best way to describe it; it is a collaborative initiative,” Coleman said.Safety leaders take on higher leadership responsibilities within the alliance. This position requires more than the basic training because safety leaders will work hand-in-hand with staff members, help facilitate workshops and provide support to survivors of gender-based violence.Coleman said she wants the organization to focus heavily on peer-to-peer contact because she believes that it is essential for students to show their support and be a part of the solution to gender-based violence.“Why not equip students to be a resource to their peers?” Coleman said. “There is such an opportunity for peer-to-peer education. Peers are more likely to reach out to other peers.”Coleman said that the recent rape cases that have surfaced at USC just further illustrate how more needs to be done at USC to shift the way students think about sexual harassment.“It’s not OK. That is why we need a program like this to change the culture. I don’t think girls understand what sexual harassment is, some think it is normal and they shouldn’t take that lightly,” said Kelly Kinas, a freshman majoring in theatre.Coleman said that she hopes that students leaders from different cross sections within the campus will help to break this pattern of thinking.“We are looking for someone who is genuinely interested and committed to ensure campus safety and provide support in our community,” Coleman said.Kinas said she has already submitted her application to S.A.F.E. T-Alliance. Kinas learned about the program after she heard Coleman speak during one of her sorority’s Monday night dinners and applied because she feels personally invested in Coleman’s cause.“One of my theatre girls got raped outside in a car — it’s absolutely terrible,” Kinas said. “I want to help in any way that I can.”Other students have expressed support for the program because they believe a program with trained peers might help more people speak up about gender-based violence.“I would feel a lot safer on campus if this program is implemented … to have students have someone to come to if they aren’t comfortable in talking to their family or friends. It’s nice to have a place to help,” Adanna Teemac, a freshman majoring in psychology, said.Though the program is just getting started, Coleman said that as it continues to grow, it will continue to shift to adapt to the needs of the university.“We want to do our best to be a reflection of the USC community and their needs,” Coleman said.last_img read more

21-year runner Harrison runs short one leg

Posted on by

first_imgSCENIC ROUTE—Every year, William Harrison joins thousands of others in the Pittsburgh Marathon. William Harrison can tell you horrific stories of his time as a 911 dispatcher. He can also take you on a journey through his rich family history, most notably holding the distinction of the most degrees from the University of Pittsburgh of any African-American family. But perhaps what he’s most proud of, is being a part of the elite 13, a group of runners who have been through every Pittsburgh Marathon, including the first two Great Races.This year’s race marked Harrison’s 21st marathon. What makes him different from probably most of the others is that he doesn’t train between marathons. In fact, he can’t train. While in high school, Harrison, 59, discovered he had non-cancerous bone growths in his left leg. Four operations and four decades later, his left leg is still the source of constant pain.“If I trained the way people are supposed to train, I probably wouldn’t be able to run the race. I don’t have the strength in my left leg that I do in my right leg,” Harrison said. “That kind of strain on my knee, I just wouldn’t be able to do it. The only thing I can consider training is the last race I ran.”As a former athlete at Westinghouse High School, the loss of strength in his left leg hit Harrison particularly hard. He has spent the rest of his life trying to show people how he has been able to overcome his disability through the power of God.“I ran the Great Race with the hope of telling my surgeon he couldn’t tell me what I can’t do. After I ran the first two Great Races, I called him up. I said is that good enough for you? He said no, I shouldn’t be doing that,” Harrison said. “I ran the first six before he stopped telling me what I couldn’t do.”The Pittsburgh Marathon takes runners on a tour of the city, confronting a variety of neighborhoods, not only the nicest ones. For native Pittsburghers, the sight of familiar landmarks is what inspires them to continue.“Running through Homewood is special. Homewood is in such bad shape,” Harrison said. “In this family you’re born Westinghouse Bulldogs. I use that because Westinghouse is right by mile 18 and most runners will tell you mile 18 is where you hit the wall. There’s no quit in me. There’s no quit in a Bulldog.”Mentally, Harrison’s weak leg has been a counterbalance for his physical shortcomings. Coupled with his devout religious beliefs, he sees his ability to overcome the odds and finish every race as a miracle.“A large part of finishing longer distance races is mental. First and foremost I think about God, I think about all the factors in my life that allowed me to run, I think about being the descendants of slaves,” Harrison said. “Clearly Jesus gave me the power to run with one and a half legs.”Harrison’s story has inspired others including his sons to begin running. Throughout each race he also serves as constant inspiration to his fellow runners.“All I can tell you now with the future of the Pittsburgh Marathon is, if I’m alive, I’ll do it. They start blending together after awhile. After number seven my body was pretty much imprinted with I’m going to do this every year. It can’t be pain because my left leg hurts all the time. Because it hurts all the time it can’t be an excuse,” Harrison said. “I talk to people during the race. I tell them, I’m going to finish this race so you’ve got to finish. There’s no reason I should be finishing this race.”last_img read more

Phoenix Rising School’s Friday Workshops Bring Real World Skills, and Joy,…

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook23Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Phoenix Rising School“It is a problem that so many children love learning and hate school,” says Nick Gillon, The Phoenix Rising School’s Education Director. “It’s a problem when rich, rigorous, relevant and engaging experiences have become the exception rather than the norm.” At heart, he says, the issue is one of equating ‘learning’ with ‘schooling’, and academic schooling at that.But learning encompasses many other skills which are applicable in everyday life, which is why every Friday, Phoenix students from kindergarten through 6th grade get the chance to participate in workshops that run the gamut from crochet to canning, bmx bikes to propulsion science, and acrogym to candle making. The result is enthusiasm, new skills, pride in their work and – dare we say it? – joy.“I don’t know many schools that make homemade spaghetti, bike ride, weave, do pickling and lots of other things,” says Pyrenees, age ten. “This way kids can learn about things that they love,” explains Chatalain, also age ten. “Sometimes if you just get assigned something, you don’t want to be there. When you can choose it, you can easily feel like, ‘I love this because I chose it and I knew what I wanted to do.’”Students find that the skills they pick up in workshops transfer nicely to the rest of their lives. “If you didn’t know how to ride a bike and you took the biking workshop, you would know how to do that skill,” says Helen, a third grader. “And cooking, that’s something we can use every day.”For teachers, workshops offer a chance to teach a subject they’re passionate about. “I get to choose something that I’m really interested in, so it’s not like actually working because I have so much fun,” says 3rd and 4th grade teacher Megan Moskwa, who has taught canning, soap making, candle making and more.“Seeing kids get excited about making blackberry jam really makes my day,” Audrey Goodwin-Arpin concurs. Four days a week she teaches K-1, but on Fridays she has offered acrogym, crochet, jewelry making, knitting and most recently, cooking. “If I like something and I do it in my own life, I transfer that passion to them,” she says.Students and teachers also get an opportunity to mix with people they wouldn’t normally see. According to Miles, a first grader, “You can get to know other people better.” The different grouping of students add to the feeling of a village, says Audrey. “When I see the students outside at recess, I’ve already been their teacher. There’s a different level of respect and a feeling that we’re responsible for all of them, not just the ones in our class. It’s also a way to keep track of the ones that I’ve already had that have moved on from my class.”Here are some of the workshops that have been taught at Phoenix Rising over the last three years:bmx bikesartfairy housescandle makingsoccercookingsurvival skillsacrogymadvanced electronicssoap makingweavingKorean languagepuppetspianotheaterpotterycartoonjournalismjewelry makingimprovsinginglamp makingcreative dramagardeningfiber artsliving historydanceschool beautifulrace carswater colorcarpentryhandbuilt potteryanimepropulsion scienceoutdoor educationdigital photo and videolast_img read more

Blast Your Way to Evolutionary Progress

Posted on by

first_imgThe cartoony slogan “Evolve or perish” garnered support from a new story about evolution.  Dave Mosher on Live Science shamelessly titled his article “Catastrophic impacts made life flourish,” describing the theory by Birger Schmitz [U of Lund, Sweden] that the Ordovician extinction was caused by a meteor impact.  Out of the wreckage, a plethora of new life emerged, he thinks.  Don’t tell that to students: “If you push an ecosystem too hard, you’ll destroy it,” he said.  “But for the organisms living on Earth at the time, [the environment] pushed them to adapt and fill new niches.  It’s like at the university: I tell my students all the time that if we don’t push you, you don’t evolve.”Whoops; too late.  For the equivocation of confusing random mutation and natural selection with purpose-driven, goal-seeking, hopefully-intelligent study, Schmitz easily wins Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week.Your evolutionary biologists at work.  No further comment necessary. (Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Planter maintenance is worth the effort

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The 2016 growing season will be upon us before we know it. One of the most important parts of the growing season is planting. It’s crucial that your crops get off to a good start and it’s important to make sure that your planter is field-ready when the time comes. Planting seed into the best possible growing conditions is a one of the most important tasks of spring field work. A planter in need of some adjustment can result in varied seed placement, uneven emergence, and ultimately a reduction in yield potential.Check for and replace any parts of your planter that are excessively worn. No-till coulters or disk openers that are worn out will not create the proper seed furrow and may cause poor seed placement. Good seed-to-soil contact is critical in ensuring seed germination and uniform emergence. Emergence that is uneven can cause a loss in yield potential. No-till coulters should be adjusted to operate at the same depth or slightly shallower than disk openers. Seed firmers in good condition will also promote adequate seed-to-soil contact. Check the chains and sprockets on your planter. Make sure chains are operated at the correct tension and replace any sprockets that are worn as well as chains that are stiff, rusty, or excessively worn. Smooth chain operation is a critical component of proper planter operation and seed spacing. Any hesitation or jerk in the system will result in seed spacing that is not uniform.One of the most important aspects of planter maintenance is calibration of your planter. Make the necessary adjustments to your planter to make certain it will plant at the population you desire. Broken or worn parts on planter units should be replaced and units should be periodically calibrated. Along with performing maintenance on planter units make sure seed tubes are clean and are not damaged such that they will prevent even seed spacing. Calibration of your planter and units will reduce skips, doubles, and triples in seed placement. Research has shown that skips, doubles, and triples can cause a reduction in yield potential. In the publication Corn Stand Establishment and Planter Maintenance, Purdue Extension Agronomist Bob Nielsen states “Yield data from our small-plot research and from replicated strip trials indicate that about 2.5 bushels per acre are lost for every inch increase in the standard deviation of the plant-to-plant spacings.”Uniform seed spacing minimizes competition between plants for water and nutrients and promotes efficient use of sunlight.Once you’ve gone through your planter, it’s a good idea to test it out before you head to the field. It is important to evaluate a planter under conditions closely resembling those you will find in the field. Keep in mind a gravel driveway in the barnyard may work but it might not accurately resemble field conditions. Evaluate your planter’s performance at the speed you will be operating in the field. Check your planter for smooth operation, make sure seed spacing and depth is even and accurate. Making a few adjustments to your planter this winter will require some time and effort. This is time well spent and it could really pay off in the upcoming growing season.last_img read more

Deontay Wilder KOs Dominic Breazeale in 1st round to defend heavyweight belt

Posted on by

first_imgDeontay Wilder, right, knocks down Dominic Breazeale during the first round of the WBC heavyweight championship boxing match Saturday, May 18, 2019, in New York. Wilder won in the first round. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)NEW YORK — Deontay Wilder believes they are coming, the mega matchup with Anthony Joshua and the rematch with Tyson Fury.Until then, he moved onto some business with Dominic Breazeale.ADVERTISEMENT DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew He looked like a picture of peace as he carried his young daughter into the arena about three hours earlier, but was back to making his case as boxing’s baddest man once the fighting started.In the other title fight on the card, Gary Russell Jr. (30-1, 18 KOs) defended his piece of the featherweight title when the referee stopped his bout with Kiko Martinez (39-9-2) late in the fifth round on the advice of the ringside doctor because of a bad cut over the challenger’s left eye.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Warriors rout Blazers for 3-0 lead in West finals Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too An immediate rematch was expected before Fury surprisingly went another route.“I understand what Tyson Fury did. When you get dropped on the canvas like that, I understand you have to get yourself back together,” Wilder said. “But the rematch will happen, like all these other fights will happen. The great thing is all these fights are in discussion. The big fights will happen.”And Wilder won’t need any more pounds as long as he still has one of the most feared right hands in boxing.Breazeale had downplayed Wilder’s power, saying heavyweights are supposed to hit hard. But he should certainly be a believer now.He was challenging for a heavyweight title for the second time, having been stopped by Joshua in the seventh round three years ago in Britain. He said he had learned and grown from that fight, but there’s nothing that could have prepared him for what faced in landing just two punches before 13,181 fans in Brooklyn.“This was a situation where he landed the big right hand before I did,” Breazeale said. “I thought I was going to come on in the later rounds. I’ll be back and go for the heavyweight title again.”Wilder and Joshua was the fight just about everyone in boxing would prefer to see, but so far it’s been all talk without seriously moving close to action.Joshua will be making his U.S. debut at nearby Madison Square Garden on June 1, so perhaps they could try again afterward to negotiate a bout.Wilder easily put aside the letdown of not fighting Joshua or Fury again because of his anger toward Breazeale over an altercation involving family members at an Alabama hotel in 2017. He went as far as to tout his ability to kill a man in the ring, remarks for which WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman said would be addressed by the organization in a hearing.Wilder was coming off tough tests in his last two bouts, getting rocked by Luis Ortiz in their March 2018 fight in this arena before stopping the Cuban in the 10th round, and needing a knockdown in the final round to secure the draw with Fury.

He wanted a rematch with Fury or a unification match with fellow champion Joshua, but settled for a mandatory defense of his WBC title when those couldn’t be made.He ended it quickly, finishing off Breazeale (20-2) after being pushed hard in each of his last two fights.Wilder weighed in at a little more than 223 pounds, a gain from the 209 he was at for the Fury fight, but still well below the 245 he set as a goal after feeling he was too small in that bout, in which he dropped Fury with a huge combination in the 12th round but had to settle for the draw when the challenger was able to get up and finish the fight.ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess He took care of it quickly and emphatically.Wilder got back into the win column Saturday night, knocking out Breazeale with an overpowering right hand in the first round to defend his heavyweight title.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“There’s been a lot of animosity and a lot of words that were said and it just came out of me tonight,” Wilder said.Wilder hurt Breazeale with a right to the head early in their fight at Barclays Center, but the challenger had recovered from that early onslaught.
