LGBTQ students escorted out of Iowa Capitol

first_imgDES MOINES — A group of students was escorted out of the Iowa capitol by state troopers after some transgender students refused to leave a men’s restroom and use gender-neutral restrooms instead.Iowa Safe Schools executive director Nate Monson says the LGBTQ students were at the capitol to lobby legislators. “Students were using the restrooms that they identify with and under the Iowa Civil Rights Act for the past 13 years, that’s been a protected class,” Monson says. “The state troopers at the capitol told our students that was not the case and they physically escorted about 150 students LGBTQ youth out the door.”Someone had called capitol police to report an adult and minor females were in a men’s restroom. A video posted online shows a trooper telling the group his concern was about “some type of possible sexual activity” in the restroom. No one was arrested, but a couple of dozen students wound up waiting on the capitol steps for nearly three hours for a school bus to pick them up.Fifteen-year-old Morgan Gooden of Mitchellville says students in the group aren’t mad, but they are annoyed.“We all just want this to stop,” Gooden says. “This was supposed to be our day to talk to legislators…and they had to ruin it for us over a bathroom.”Monson, who organized the lobby day, is seeking a meeting with the governor and the state public safety commissioner to discuss the incident.last_img read more

GPS shoe shows where wearer is

first_img“We call it a second eye watching over you,” Daniel said. It’s the latest implementation of satellite-based navigation into everyday life – technology that can be found in everything from cell phones that help keep kids away from sexual predators to fitness watches that track heart rate and distance. Shoes aren’t as easy to lose as phones, watches and bracelets. In some emergencies – as when a child or Alzheimer’s patient is lost – a parent, spouse or guardian can call the monitoring service, and operators can activate the GPS remotely and alert authorities if the caller can provide the correct password. But an alert involving authorities is not meant for nonemergencies – such as finding out if a teen is really at the library or a spouse is really on a business trip. If authorities are called and it is not an emergency, the caller will incur all law enforcement costs, Daniel said. Once the button is pressed, the shoe will transmit information until the battery runs out. While other GPS gadgets often yield spotty results, Daniel says his company has spent millions of dollars and nearly two years of research to guarantee accuracy. The 2-inch-by-3-inch chip is tucked into the bottom of the shoe. Experts say GPS accuracy often depends on how many satellites the system can tap into. Daniel’s shoe and most GPS devices on the market rely on four. “The technology is improving regularly. It’s to the point where you can get fairly good reflection even in areas with a lot of tree coverage and skyscrapers,” said Jessica Myers, a spokeswoman for Garmin International Inc., a Kansas-based leader in GPS technology. “You still need a pretty clear view of the sky to work effectively.” Daniel, who wears the shoes when he runs every morning, says he tested them on a recent trip to New Jersey. It tracked him down the Atlantic Coast to the Miami airport and through the city to a specific building. The company also has put the technology into military boots and is in talks with Colombia and Ecuador, he said. But retail experts say the shoe might be a tough sale to brand-conscious kids. “If (parents) can get their kids to wear them, then certainly there is a marketplace. But I think the biggest challenge is overcoming … the cool marketplace,” said Lee Diercks, managing director of New Jersey-based Clear Thinking Group, an advisory firm for retailers. KEEPING TRACK WHAT: GPS sneakers that can find the wearer with the press of a button HOW MUCH: $325-$350 for an adult’s pair, to be available within a month; 24-hour monitoring service will cost an additional $19.95 a month KID FACTOR: A line for children will be available this summer160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! MIAMI – Isaac Daniel calls the tiny Global Positioning System chip he has embedded into a line of sneakers “peace of mind.” He wishes his 8-year-old son had been wearing them when he got a call from the boy’s school in 2002 saying the child was missing. In New York on business, the worried father hopped a flight to Atlanta, en route home, before he learned that the incident had been a miscommunication and his son was safe. Days later, the engineer started working on a prototype of Quantum Satellite Technology, a line of adult sneakers, costing $325 to $350, that will hit the shelves within a month. The sneakers work when the wearer presses a button on the shoe to activate the GPS. A wireless alert detailing the location is sent to a 24-hour monitoring service that costs an additional $19.95 a month. Daniel says the sneakers will locate the wearer anywhere in the world with the press of a button. A children’s line will be out this summer. last_img read more

Opinion: Cellino is ‘poisoning the possibility’ of Leeds being successful

first_imgIt never rains but it pours at Leeds United.Monday’s events at Elland Road were just another twist in the Massimo Cellino era.‘Here we go again’ was the reaction of Leeds fans, while other football fans began to feel sorry for supporters of the club.Italian Cellino, known as the ‘manager eater’ during his spell as chairman of Cagliari in his home country, reacted after the loss to leaders Brighton by firing yet another coaching team. He immediately hired his sixth manager in 18 months at Elland Road and his actions are becoming increasingly frustrating for fans of the club.After all, they are the ones affected most by Cellino’s actions. Never mind the managerial merry-go-round and the uncertainty of the club, the fans were hit again last week as the chairman unravelled another crazy idea of his.As the Whites are being broadcasted on Sky Sports ten times between August and January, Cellino has decided to protest against the Football League by restricting the amount of fans Leeds take away.His idea is the amount of coverage should be shared equally across the division, as being broadcast affects fans’ arrangements, ticket sales and other matchday revenues. So, by restricting away tickets to 2,000 to a club that sells out most allocations and has the highest average away attendance in the Football League, Cellino thinks he has a plan. For a club that is taking around 4,000 fans to Fulham on Wednesday night. Yet Sky will understandably benefit from this ‘protest’ as viewing figures will inevitably rise. Another of Cellino’s crazy masterplans.Things seemed to be going smoothly at Elland Road up until mid-September, as the young squad looked promising, they had a manager with a vision in Uwe Rosler and they had Adam Pearson assisting Cellino in running the club, along with keeping the Italian under wraps.Chief Exective Officer Matt Child and Sporting Director Nicola Salerno have left the hierarchy under Cellino’s reign, while acting chairman Andrew Umbers seems to be out of the picture. Cellino undermimed previous manager Neil Redfearn by suspending his assistant Steve Thompson, before unexplicably replacing fans’ favourtie Redfearn. Next, executive director Pearson has departed after just four months, to apparently put his full focus back into running his rugby league club, Hull FC, and Cellino regained full control again. Fans knew what was coming.Cellino spoke recently of his support for Rosler and the need for stability, only to yesterday backtrack by saying he had lost faith in the German. He is a man who seems to make rash decisions – and here is another one.New boss Evans, not many fans’ first choice to take charge at United, claims he will be fully in charge of selection, but Cellino is known to have interfered regularly in the past.He brought in ex-Rotherham boss Evans on a rolling contract before the Football League banned the Leeds owner from running the club (again) after a court ruling in Italy on unpaid VAT. Cellino was reportedly aware of the forthcoming ban before the weekend, before he decided to change his management team (again).It is the second time Cellino has been banned by the Football League and he intends to appeal the latest one. Fans of the club see it as positive news, in the hope he will have to sell up and give fans hope once again.Cellino has created an evident divide between fans and the club. The Leeds United Supporters’ Trust has urged Cellino to sell his majority share, to end the ‘turmoil’ and to act ‘in the best interests of the club’.The fans are ‘United’ in their belief Cellino should sell and a club of its size should not have a shortage of interested buyers. The Leeds Rhinos,Yorkshire County Cricket Club and much more, the city deserves a stable and successful football club and Cellino appears to be poisoning the possibility of that happening any time soon.Leeds United are one of the biggest clubs outside the top four and arguably the biggest outside the Premier League. They have the fan base to prove it, although that does not grant you success.But neither does a ruthless, axe-wielding Italian owner.Meanwhile, former Leeds goalkeeper Paul Robinson says the club are ‘crying out for stability’ after appointing their sixth permanent manager in 18 months.

MARATHON MAN IN SEARCH OF DONEGAL RUNNER WHO HELPED HIM CROSS LINE

first_imgRunner Martin Murphy is searching for a Donegal man who helped him cross the finish line of the Dublin City Marathon to say “thank you”!The Westmeath man who runs for St Brigid’s AC in Castlepollard, was running his fourth Dublin marathon, when he hit the ‘wall’ at mile 20.He struggled on after that, but it was the helping hand of a stranger, Padraic Lenehan, that got him across the finish line. Martin revealed “Everything was going well. I was enjoying the race and the atmosphere on the day, but I was aiming for a time and I started off too fast. When I reached the 20-mile mark I hit the wall and the wheels came off the wagon,” Martin said.“I was struggling really badly. I had to walk from 20 miles because once you hit the wall you don’t come back from it. With 200 metres to go, everything locked up.“I could see the finish line but my legs and arms wouldn’t move and next thing, out of nowhere someone came along, put out his arm, and helped me across the finish line.“It was absolutely amazing. He was like an angel on the day. Only for him, I was out of it. I don’t know him and I didn’t have the chance to say thank you, so if anyone out there knows how I can get in touch with him I’d greatly appreciate it.”  MARATHON MAN IN SEARCH OF DONEGAL RUNNER WHO HELPED HIM CROSS LINE was last modified: November 7th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalMarathonPauric Lenihanrunnerlast_img read more

HOME HELP CAUGHT STEALING FROM COUPLE ON HOME CCTV

first_imgA CCTV camera was installed in the couple’s home.A home-help worker was caught stealing hundreds of euro from an elderly couple after she appeared on their home CCTV system.Elaine Lynch stole a total of almost €400 from an elderly couple on five different occasions. The young woman appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday charged with theft.The court was told that Lynch, 37, stole from Maura and Robert Peoples from Kilmacrennan on five different occasions between October and November last year.She was eventually caught when Mr Peoples noticed that the money he had put aside to pay his milkman had gone missing.Mr Peoples’ son Aidan had previously installed a CCTV system to keep his mother and father safe.When the CCTV was viewed, it showed Ms Lynch of 20 Ceannan View, Letterkenny, stealing the money.Solicitor Gordon Curley told the court that Ms Lynch has refunded the couple €400 and had also written a letter of genuine apology to them.Judge Paul Kelly said there was a signifiant breach of trust of a couple whom had welcomed Ms Lynch into their home.“One wonders how long it would have gone on if it had not been detected,” added Judge Kelly.He adjourned the case for a probation report on May 19th.HOME HELP CAUGHT STEALING FROM COUPLE ON HOME CCTV was last modified: March 8th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:caughtCCTVcourtdonegalElaine Lynchhome helpkilmacrennanlast_img read more

Animal Patterning Keeps Scientists Puzzle-Solving

first_imgHere’s a fascinating area of research for a budding young scientist: the development of animal patterns.  Look at the dazzling wing patterns on butterflies in an illustration on Science Daily or consider a zebra’s stripes.  How do such patterns emerge from a single fertilized egg?  “Although this has been studied for years,” said a researcher at Johns Hopkins University, “there is still a lot we don’t understand.”    Clues from gene knockout experiments have shown that the patterns can be disrupted if one or another of two genes is not expressed properly.  During development, it appears that pairs of genes do a sort of tug-of-war.  As cells migrate, their protein products “work against and battle each other: when one gains a slight advantage, the other weakens, which in turn causes the first to gain an even bigger advantage,” the article said.  “This continues until one dominates in each cell.”  Sometimes one protein wins, sometimes the other.  Thus a black stripe can appear in one place on a zebra and a white stripe in another.    This is only a partial answer, however.  It explains how a pattern can emerge from no pattern, but does not explain why the pattern unfolds in the exact places it does.  Something tells the cells where to move and when to stay put.  What regulates and choreographs all this motion?  More research will be required.We need bright, young, curious kids to go into science with a design mentality.  This is another area ripe for intelligent design research.    Discovering a physical mechanism for how patterns form in a developing embryo will not explain it away.  Does deciphering Morse Code lead to a conclusion the code evolved?  No; it opens up new avenues to understand purposeful communication.  Design-theoretic research that unlocks the mystery of animal patterning will only reinforce the design principles that make possible a peacock’s tail, a tiger’s stripes, a giraffe’s tile patterns and the spots on your dog Spot.  Evolutionists have nothing to offer but fables.    The insights that could be gained from this budding branch of genetics and developmental biology could be huge.  Once we understand the design principles behind animal patterning, many spinoffs come to mind.  Doctors may be able to monitor and control the migration of cancer cells, for instance.  Nanotech engineers may be able to mimic the push-and-pull actions of proteins to assemble microscopic machines.  Computer scientists may be able to apply the principles in fuzzy-logic applications.    Get your kids off the junk food of entertainment and onto substantive matters.  Inspire them to become ID-motivated scientists.  They might be able to improve the lives of millions.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
