Northridge mom, 2 kids innocent victims of road tragedy

first_img>>> UPDATE: 5-year-old dies of road-rage injuries VAN NUYS – Radiant, content and at the pinnacle of her life, Syeda Arif held her 2-month-old daughter in her arms as she plucked out a baby bag from the trunk of her Honda. It was 3 p.m. Tuesday and she had just pulled up to a friend’s home along Sherman Way with her daughter, Ikra, and 5-year-old son, Ayman. Described as a doting mother who reveled in her Bangladeshi traditions, she and her friend planned to get ready for Saturday’s Muslim holiday of Eid. She had bought traditional colorful Bengali clothes for friends and family. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Less than a block away, strangers Armando Gamboa Ayon, a Pacoima teen, and Brian Gilbert Barnes, a porn star and self-proclaimed pot smoker, were taunting each other, zipping west through heavy afternoon traffic on Sherman Way in a show of bravado, pushing the speedometer to 90 mph, police said. And then, in a flash, Arif’s life shattered. In a chain-reaction crash, Ayon plowed into a parked car, which then slammed into Arif’s, crumpling it like a tin can and crushing her and her son. Her daughter flew out of her hands. Now, she has lost part of a leg and might lose her son, who is clinging to life while hooked up to machines at UCLA Medical Center. Her daughter is in critical condition. “It is as if I lost my own family,” said Ripon Rahman, a family friend. “She is alive, but I don’t know how she is going to survive.” Police said they don’t know what set off the impromptu street race between Ayon, 19, and Barnes, 44, of Northridge. Both had cut in and out of traffic for more than a mile when they reached Amestoy Avenue and Sherman Way. Barnes hit the brakes on his red 2000 Camaro hard, and Ayon swerved his Nissan Maxima around him to the lane closest to the curb. But at such high speeds, he couldn’t avoid a parked car near where Arif and her son stood. Barnes sped off, and when police arrived at the scene of limp bodies and pools of blood, they arrested Ayon. He is charged with attempted murder. Barnes later turned himself in to police, and he faces the same charges. “It does not matter who started this,” Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Michel Moore said. “This is not a fight of 5-year-olds on a playground. It’s ridiculous. They both should have stopped.” Road-rage crashes This year in the San Fernando Valley, there have been 100 road-rage crashes, which include high-speed street racing and other forms of aggressive driving, the same number as last year to this point. Tuesday’s crash came one day after an El Monte mother and her two children were killed when a car in a street race spun out of control and smashed into them. Both cases are examples of how aggression behind the wheel can turn tragic, police said. Word of the Sherman Way crash spread quickly among residents of the Bengali community. Dozens streamed into the Northridge Hospital Medical Center emergency room, where Arif lay and her distraught husband sat blank-faced with little to say. Friends said the shock is simply too much. “This has shattered the family. They are so beautiful and she was well-liked,” Rahman said. Arif had come to the United States seven years ago from Bangladesh and moved to a four-bedroom Northridge home with her husband, a computer engineer, to be closer to her friends. Inside the home Wednesday of her best friend, Shahnaz “Zabeen” Kazi, an April 23 clipping of a local Bengali paper, the Ekush, showed Arif beaming into the camera, surrounded by a dozen women dressed in pink saris at her baby shower. “It’s tragic, just so tragic. We are all so shocked,” said Kazi, tears streaming down her cheeks, later adding, “I hate the man who did this.” Little is known about Ayon, but Barnes’ arrest record described him as a 6-foot, 198-pound man born June 1, 1963, who works in the adult-film industry. The Internet Adult Film Database lists an actor with the same birthdate and physical description who performs under the name Brian Surewood. An outlaw image Members of the closely knit business described him as an alternately macho and laid-back man, aggressive on camera but friendly between scenes. “As far as the porn industry goes, he’s an intellectual,” porn blogger Luke Ford said. “He likes to smoke pot and watch the History Channel for hours. ” Ford said Barnes, who cultivated an outlaw image, with a scraggly beard, moustache and bandanna, could quickly shift from relaxed to aggressive. News of the crash did not come as a shock, he said. Others described Barnes as a hippie who was kind to his fellow performers. “This is a super tragedy,” said Bill Margold, an industry advocate who worked on a movie with Barnes. “I ache for him because he’s a really good person. This is just indicative that this industry is full of over-aged juvenile delinquents.” In a light-hearted interview a year ago on an Adult DVD Talk podcast, Barnes’ assessment of himself was almost prophetic for what happened this week. “I smoke pot not for my health, but for other people’s,” he said. “I think I’m generally a violent person. Smoking pot really helps me curb my ways. It makes me very happy and mellow and very easy to get along with, instead of an irate (jerk).” rachel.uranga@dailynews.com (818) 713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Date of Biblical Artifact Corroborated

first_imgIn 1979, a silver scroll was discovered near Jerusalem that contained the text of the priestly benediction known from the Pentateuch (Numbers 6:24-26).  The scroll was dated at the 7th century BC at the time, but doubts remained, some thinking that instead it was from post-exilic times centuries later.  Now, according to a New York Times report by John Noble Wilford echoed in the Oakland Tribune, “researchers at the University of Southern California have now re-examined the inscriptions using space-age photographic and computer imaging techniques,” and concluded that the artifacts indeed date from the pre-exilic period.  The international team used some advanced digital imaging techniques at Jet Propulsion Laboratory to bring out hitherto undetectable fine details in the artifact.This is a small but important piece in a large puzzle of archaeological evidence that supports the historicity of the Pentateuch (the books of Moses).  Liberal scholars and skeptics have claimed that Moses could not have written such books; they assumed the books were compiled much later, after the Babylonian exile.  Artifacts like this show that quotations from the Pentateuch were in common knowledge and circulation centuries earlier.(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Anonymous Missouri Player Says Players And Coaches Divided On Boycott: “If We Were 9-0 This Wouldn’t Be Happening”

However, some black players didn’t decide to take any action until Butler met with some players Saturday night.“Not everyone agrees with the decision (to stop all football activities),” the player said. “Most people are pissed, including the black guys (on the team).”Earlier today, the athletic department expressed support for the team’s decision, and Mizzou took a team photo to show solidarity.

Comcast bid for Fox is next after favorable ATT ruling

first_imgA 2014 attempt to combine fell apart amid resistance from the Obama administration. But the industry is different just four years later. Wireless carriers aren’t just competing with each other, but also with Comcast and others as the wireless, broadband and video industries converge. AT&T is about to get larger with CNN, HBO and other channels from Time Warner. Beyond combining with each other, T-Mobile and Sprint might need its own content acquisition to compete.CBS AND VIACOMCBS has resisted pressure from its controlling shareholder, National Amusements, to merge with Viacom, which also is controlled by National Amusements. The two companies used to be one but separated in 2005. Comcast challenges Disney for control of 21st Century Fox assets Citation: Comcast bid for Fox is next after favorable AT&T ruling (2018, June 13) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-06-comcast-fox-favorable-att.html The worry is that with just three major carriers, there would be less incentive to keep innovating on prices and service. T-Mobile and Sprint might even raise prices now that they don’t have to try to poach customers off each other. In this Aug. 8, 2017, file photo, The Walt Disney Co. logo appears on a screen above the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

(AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File) If Comcast succeeds in outbidding Disney for Fox, a major cable distributor would control even more channels on its lineup and those of its rivals. There are fears that it could lead to higher cable bills or hinder online alternatives.But U.S. District Judge Richard Leon cleared the AT&T deal Tuesday despite similar fears. The ruling signaled that federal regulators might have a hard time stopping companies from getting bigger by gobbling up rivals and the content they ownComcast isn’t likely the only mega-media bid in the works. There will probably be a rush to consolidate. Even if a company doesn’t need to get bigger right away, it might need to do so to prevent a competitor from doing so.Here’s a look at some of the combinations that will transform the media landscape and change how people consume entertainment.FOX WITH DISNEY OR COMCASTDisney has made a $52.4 billion all-stock offer for the bulk of Twenty-First Century Fox, including the studios behind the “Avatar” movies, “The Simpsons” and “Modern Family,” along with National Geographic. Marvel would get back the characters previously licensed to Fox, reuniting X-Men with the Avengers. A combination would reunite CBS’s television business with Viacom’s production studios, similar to the arrangements now in place at NBC owner Comcast and ABC owner Disney. (On the flip side, the Fox television network and studios would separate under a deal with either Comcast or Disney.)With Viacom, the $6-a-month CBS All Access streaming service might have a larger library, as Viacom owns MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and other cable networks.VERIZONVerizon, which bought AOL and Yahoo in recent years, could be on the prowl for other entertainment properties. Verizon wants to challenge Google and Facebook in the huge and lucrative field of digital advertising—and having more content could help. There’s speculation that CBS could be a potential target. With its main wireless rival AT&T becoming even more of a content powerhouse, Verizon might feel the need to grow. SMALLER MOVIE STUDIOSRumors have long swirled that Lionsgate might be a potential takeover target by anyone from Amazon to Verizon or even a combined CBS-Viacom entity. Nothing has materialized yet for the owner of the “Twilight” and “Hunger Games” franchises. As a smaller studio, Lionsgate needs to get bigger to compete in the current landscape.Similarly, Viacom-owned Paramount studio has been on the chopping block before. After years of troubles, it has recently rebounded with the horror film “A Quiet Place” and comedy “Book Club.” That could make it a lucrative takeover target by a company seeking content creators. But Comcast has said it is preparing an all-cash offer that is superior to Disney’s. It will likely to make an offer soon, now that the judge has ruled in AT&T’s favor, without setting any conditions.David Turetsky, a professor at the State University of New York at Albany, warns that the AT&T ruling is based on “specific facts and evidence” that may or may not apply in other cases. Still, many of the circumstances in that case are similar with a potential Comcast bid.For Disney, a successful Comcast bid could make Disney’s planned streaming service less attractive.SPRINT AND T-MOBILEIn April, the two telecom companies announced a $26.5 billion combination. The deal would combine the nation’s third- and fourth-largest wireless companies and bulk them up to a similar size to Verizon and AT&T, the industry giants. Comcast will likely bid for Fox’s entertainment business as early as Wednesday now that a federal judge has cleared AT&T’s $85 billion takeover of Time Warner.

After This Young Monkey Got Hit by a Car Monkey Strangers Comforted

first_imgEven monkeys know it’s right to care for strangers in need. (Or maybe their parents just didn’t teach the helpers about “stranger danger.”) In a new paper published in the July issue of the journal Primates, scientists document for the first time Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) fostering an older juvenile macaque — a stranger to them — after finding him lost and hurt on the side of the road days after he had been struck by a car inside a park in Morocco. The monkeys groomed and cared for the injured juvenile, named Pipo and almost 3 years old, and socialized with him until he was healed and ready to return to his own group. The observation was surprising, study author Liz Campbell, a zoologist at the University of Oxford, wrote in the journal article, because “intergroup encounters at this [national park in Morocco] range from immediate withdrawal by one group to lengthy, sometimes aggressive, contests.”Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really LoudThis rapid strike produces a loud ‘pop’ comparable to those made by snapping shrimps, one of the most intense biological sounds measured at sea.Volume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9 facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65917-macaque-comfort-monkey-child.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0000:3500:35  Researchers had never seen monkey strangers getting along like this before. [8 Human-Like Behaviors of Primates] That was good news for Pipo. After a car struck him on March 20, 2018, Campbell wrote, he retreated to a nearby tree while other members of his home group looked on. “Several group members displayed affiliation towards him, and a juvenile sat with him and groomed him as he appeared to be losing consciousness,” she wrote. “At approximately 17:35 (1 hour before sunset), his group left for their sleeping trees, but Pipo was left behind in the tree.” The next day, Pipo was nowhere to be found, Campbell wrote, and she and her colleagues assumed he had died. But on March 22, she wrote, “he was found in the same tree, alone and screaming repeatedly. He later left the tree to feed on the ground but continued screaming intermittently, then returned to the trees.” Pipo ended up hanging out with the MonkeyWatch group for four months, long after his injuries appeared to have healed, according to Campbell. During that time, he was “fully integrated” into the new group’s social structure and got along with them before eventually departing and returning to his home group. This finding is also good news for Barbary macaques as a species, Campbell wrote. There are only about 10,000 individuals left in the wild, and their numbers have fallen significantly in recent years. Poaching is a significant problem, with monkeys removed from the wild and sold into the pet trade at 150% the rate the population could sustain, according to a 2008 study in the journal Traffic Bulletin. Efforts to restore wild Barbary macaque populations rely on the hope that young poached macaques, often very young monkeys, can be returned to groups they weren’t born into, where strangers can take care of them. (Adult males of this species especially love babies and often “sandwich” them in three-way male-baby-male group hugs, Campbell wrote.) But up until this point, researchers had assumed that only baby monkeys and very young juveniles were candidates for this sort of rehabilitation. Pipo’s case suggests, Campbell wrote, that older juveniles might also be able to return to the wild to live with groups of strangers.

Polands opposition promises to cut out coal in top election pledge

first_img World 08 May 2019 Poland needs debate on euro before joining – opposition leader Related News Related News WARSAW (Reuters) – Poland’s biggest opposition group, the European Coalition, plans to eliminate coal from power production by 2040, its leader said on Saturday as he unveiled pledges ahead of an autumn election to be fought against the coal-friendly, conservative government.Poland generates electricity mostly from coal and has some of the worst air quality in Europe. The ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, which won a 2015 election partly on promises to sustain coal, plans to cut the use of the polluting fuel to around 60 percent by 2030 from around 80 percent now.”We are committed that by 2030 we will eliminate coal in household heating, by 2035 in systemic heating and by 2040 in the energy sector,” Grzegorz Schetyna, the European Coalition leader said in a televised speech at the group’s convention. “We must clean Poland up,” he said. AdChoices广告Coal has fuelled Poland’s economy for years and a promise to support it has been used in previous political campaigns, due to the strength of the coal unions and a large mining workforce.However attitudes among Poles have shifted in recent years due to increased awareness of coal’s impact on the environment. MORE PROMISESSchetyna also promised that if the European Coalition won the election – likely to be held in October or November – it would remove the Sunday trade ban introduced by PiS and raise salaries.PiS has led in most opinion polls since the 2015 election due to robust social spending. In European elections in May it won 45.4% of votes.The European Coalition, made up of the Civic Platform formerly led by European Council President Donald Tusk and a group of leftist and rural politicians, was second, with 38.5%.Schetyna also pledged to “renovate” democracy in one legislative package, in reference to PiS moves to increase control over the judiciary and media which critics say have undermined the democratic system. Other pledges that counter conservative PiS proposals include the possibility for unmarried couple to register their relationship and stronger women’s rights.”One can talk a lot and promise much,” PiS spokeswoman Anita Czerwinska told public television after Schetyna’s speech. “We ask for calculations and concrete projects. If these are not revealed, then it could mean that Grzegorz Schetyna is not telling the truth.” (Reporting by Agnieszka Barteczko and Pawel Florkiewicz; Editing by Ros Russell) World 08 May 2019 Broad coalitions key to fighting populism – Polish opposition World 13 Apr 2019 Poland’s Kaczynski says ‘no’ to the euro as part of election campaign {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}last_img read more
