Hernandez is scheduled for an Oct. 24 court appearance at Norwalk Superior Court. Detective David Yoshitake testified that Hernandez was coming from his grandmother’s house in Whittier when he saw the Dodge, which had been left running in the 7000 block of Pierce Avenue. Angel Irizarry had parked in front of his mother’s apartment that morning. His mother’s caretaker didn’t have her keys so he unlocked the door to let her in. He left the van’s keys in the ignition. WHITTIER – A Culver City man told detectives he saw a parked van with the engine running, jumped in the driver’s seat and took off. He only realized there was a child in the back when he heard noises. He later left the 1993 Dodge Caravan on a Los Angeles street and called 9-1-1 to report a child left unattended in a vehicle. LAPD officers found 20-month- old Angel Irizarry Jr., whose Sept. 21 disappearance from Whittier triggered an AMBER Alert. Fingerprints in the van led Whittier police to Moises Humberto Hernandez, 29, who was arrested Sept. 26. “I was briefly in there to open the door and get a bottle. I heard someone accelerate the van,” he testified. Irizarry ran out. The Dodge, which belongs to his brother, was gone along with his only child. He called 9-1-1. Hernandez told detectives he was on the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway when he heard noises and noticed the young boy sitting in a car seat in the back. He allegedly abandoned the van on a Los Angeles street and went to the nearest pay phone a block away. “He called 9-1-1. He told the dispatcher there was a baby left on Globe Avenue and Regent Street. That it was unattended,” Yoshitake said. Hernandez then allegedly headed to a friend’s house several blocks away. He didn’t tell anyone else about the child, Yoshitake added. A Los Angeles Police Department officer told Yoshitake they found the driver’s side window open and the boy not in his car seat. Lynn Storing, who represents Hernandez, asked Yoshitake, “didn’t (my) client tell him he was scared when he saw the child in the van? And that he bottle-fed the younger Irizarry?” Storing pointed out that Hernandez didn’t harm the boy and wanted authorities to respond immediately so he called 9-1-1. The defense also asked the court to dismiss the charges of child abuse and car theft. Storing said they didn’t hear from the Caravan’s owner and the prosecution didn’t prove Hernandez created conditions likely to cause great bodily harm or death to the child. Deputy District Attorney Georgia Huerta said the baby was left by himself 15 minutes or longer and that testimony showed he was loose in the car seat and the driver’s window was down. Someone could have stolen the car or the child could have gotten out, she said. “The baby was placed in a situation he could have suffered great bodily harm,” Huerta said. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

3rd bird flu death suspected

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Authorities are closely monitoring H5N1, for fear it could mutate into a form easily passed between humans and spark a pandemic. Hulya Kocyigit, 11, died in a hospital in Van a day after her 15-year-old sister, Fatma Kocyigit, succumbed to the disease, Sahin said. Their brother Mehmet Ali Kocyigit, 14, died on Sunday. The doctor said the youngsters most likely contracted the virus while playing with the heads of dead chickens infected with the disease, which explains why the parents were not affected. The Turkish newspaper Sabah said the children had tossed the chicken heads like balls inside their house in Dogubayazit, near the Iranian border. Another 25 to 30 people had come in to the hospital for blood tests, received medical care and left, a hospital official said on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the media. Other doctors in contact with the patients were not reachable early this morning. Officials tried to calm the rising fears. VAN, Turkey – An 11-year-old girl died today of suspected bird flu in eastern Turkey – days after her brother and sister also succumbed. Their doctor said they probably contracted the illness by playing with dead chickens. A fourth sibling from the same family was also seriously ill and breathing with the help of respirators, said Huseyin Avni Sahin, head physician at the hospital in the eastern city of Van where the children were treated. A hospital official said up to 30 other people were being treated for possible bird flu symptoms early today, as Turkey sent medicines to the affected area in an effort to mobilize against a virus that appeared to be moving westward from eastern Asia. Preliminary tests in Turkey indicated two of the siblings died of the H5N1 strain of bird flu. If confirmed by further testing, it would be the first human deaths from the strain outside eastern Asian areas where more than 70 people have died. Samples were being sent to a British lab for confirmation. “We don’t expect the disease to contaminate a large number of people,” Health Minister Recep Akdag said. “We don’t expect a pandemic or anything like that in Turkey, but there is a real risk for people who are in close contact with fowl.” Agriculture Minister Mehdi Eker traveled to Van to discuss the situation with local officials Thursday. “We’re facing an important problem,” Eker told reporters. “We should calmly take all measures required by science and medicine and implement them without panicking.” Eker said the problem of containing bird flu in eastern Turkey is aggravated by the fact that almost every house has fowl and they allow them to go inside their homes at night when temperatures drop. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Meat processors must remove legal threats and agree to address key issues – McConalogue

first_imgFianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture Charlie McConalogue TD has called on meat processors to remove legal threats and agree to address key outstanding issues in reconvened beef talks.“The previous round of talks were unsuccessful due to the failure of meat processors to properly address a number of key issues in the beef supply chain and they must now indicate a willingness to address these in order to resolve the current beef crisis”, said Deputy McConalogue.“Issues such as the 30 months age limit, the four movement rule, and the 70-day residency requirement must be up for negotiation if farmers are to accept that meat-processors are serious about addressing their concerns. “I welcome the unanimous support at today’s meeting of the Oireachtas Agriculture Committee for Fianna Fáil’s proposal mandating the Minister for Agriculture to seek the immediate resumption of talks and calling for meat processors to demonstrate a willingness to address these issues as part of a renewed talks process. The Committee also unanimously agreed the necessity for retailers to be included in talks.“Meat processors must accept that they have demonstrated no reasonable basis for the continuation of these unjustified requirements.“The 30 month age limit puts undue pressure on farmers to sell cattle and contributes to a spike in supply at the back end of each year when a significant number of animals reach the 30 month threshold.“With regard to the four movement rule, meat processors have not demonstrated any rationale as to why animals that have moved more than four times between quality assured farms should not be paid the quality assurance bonus. “The 70 day residency requirement puts an unfair restriction on famers selling their animals through marts before slaughter, removing an outlet for smaller farmers in particular to generate competition for their finished animals.“Meat processors need to realise that it is by agreeing to address these key issues in resumed talks that the current beef crisis can be addressed. They must now remove any legal threats to farmers and enable meaningful talks to proceed,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Meat processors must remove legal threats and agree to address key issues – McConalogue was last modified: September 5th, 2019 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)last_img read more

2010 Fifa World Cup: the experience

first_imgEveryone who visited South Africa for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ was bowled over by the warmth of the welcome they received, the quality of the country’s facilities, the richness of its attractions – and the sheer energy running through Africa’s first Fifa World Cup. Here are just some of the stories we ran:A World Cup to rememberThe 2010 Fifa World Cup concluded in fine style on Sunday, with the Spanish national side raising the coveted trophy as champions for the first time. As the curtain fell on the historic event, fans reflected on what made the tournament so special for them. Mandela magic at Soccer CityMandela magic was broadcast around the world as over half a billion people watched South Africa’s former president, Nelson Mandela, make his way onto the pitch of Johannesburg’s Soccer City moments after the closing ceremony of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. South Africa’s closing ceremony dazzlesA sell-out crowd inside Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium as well as an audience of hundreds of millions across the globe were wowed by a colourful ceremony on Sunday night to celebrate the successful conclusion of a memorable first Fifa World Cup on African soil. People power reigns at Fan FestsDarkness fell hours ago, and the crowd’s breath rises visibly through the winter air at Johannesburg’s InnesFree Park. Yet Chuma is drenched in sweat. And no wonder. For the past two-and-a-half hours, the 27-year-old has been leading friends and strangers, locals and tourists in an indefatigable display of singing and dancing at this lively Fifa Fan Fest. Video: ‘It’s been life-changing’Being in South Africa during the 2010 Fifa World Cup has been “nothing but life-changing”, says Blaise Hossain from Los Angeles, California, citing the “genuine warm, inviting and rich culture that every South African embodies in very different ways.” Walking Cape Town’s Fan MileCape Town’s three-kilometre Fan Mile from the city centre to the majestic Green Point Stadium has become a hit with international fans, offering a fusion of cultures, a melting pot of different nationalities, and a place for supporters to congregate en route to the stadium. Dutch explore their African heritageThe Western Cape, and Cape Town in particular, have been inextricably linked with Holland since 1652, when Jan van Riebeeck landed in the Cape of Good Hope. Last week, the Cape experienced its second Dutch invasion, as fans of “Die Oranje” took the opportunity to explore their historical connection to South Africa. Durban a hit with World Cup fansSouth Africa’s “Surf City” was the place to be on Friday as fans streamed in by the thousands for one of the most anticipated matches of the 2010 Fifa World Cup group stages, Brazil versus Portugal. While the match itself did not live up to the hype, the city of Durban certainly did. The world comes to Nelson Mandela BayDespite its famous namesake Nelson Mandela Bay, comprising Port Elizabeth and its surrounding areas, often misses out on international events, which tend to go the way of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. But that is all changing as a result of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Portuguese wow young fansAfter three disappointing draws, Cape Town got the wake-up call it had been waiting for on Monday as Portugal thrilled a 63 644-strong Green Point Stadium crowd with a seven-goal sizzler. For seven-year-old Tanzeel Gamieldien, however, the highlight of the match came before kick-off. World Cup ‘bringing people together’Black people, white people, rich people, poor people, locals, foreigners – at places like Lucky’s Bar in Phokeng township outside Rustenburg, South Africa’s unique Fifa World Cup is bringing people from all walks of life together. Mexico sets Polokwane alightMexico and France met at the Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane on Friday in a night that rocked the World Cup host city. For the local spectators, it was a match that made them realise that the World Cup party had well and truly arrived in Polokwane. Durban captivates Dutch supportersTheir outfits were bright, mesmerising and went perfectly with their sunny disposition … the Dutch fans invaded Durban on the weekend, both to support their team in a 2010 Fifa World Cup match and to soak up the the wonderful weather and atmosphere that the city has to offer. African welcome wins players’ heartsWhatever their fortunes on the pitch, players from the competing nations at the 2010 Fifa World Cup are enjoying the experience off it. The temperatures might be low, but the visiting teams are feeling the warmth of the African spirit. Serbian fan uses World Cup to proposeSerbian fans were thrilled by their team’s 1-0 victory over Germany on Friday. There was love in the air: for the national team, for the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium – and, for one supporter, love for someone back home. Mbombela Stadium: wild by designIt may have been freezing elsewhere in the country, but when Honduras and Chile met each other head-on at Nelspruit’s World Cup opener on Wednesday, it was in glorious sunshine – and in the World Cup’s quirkiest stadium. Cup visitors enchanted by South AfricaThe world’s attention is focused on the southern tip of Africa as the greatest football showpiece plays itself out on the fields and in the streets of South Africa. But once the final whistle has blown on 11 July, it seems as though a lot of happy fans will be coming back to the country. A Rainbow World Cup journeyMaxwell Valenkamp, a Dutch national whose mother is Ghanaian, takes the train from Johannesburg to Pretoria to watch Ghana play Serbia, explaining along the way what Africa’s first Fifa World Cup means to him, and why you could call it the ‘Rainbow World Cup’. Orange Army get the party startedDutch fans are renowned for their flair off the pitch – wigs, clogs, dungarees, face-paint and flags all play a part in their arsenal. Clad from head to toe in bright orange, the Netherlands supporters ensured that Johannesburg’s Soccer City was even more orange than usual during their match against Denmark on Monday afternoon. Port Elizabeth does Mandela proudThe friendly city of Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth gave thousands of football fans – as well as Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan – an exuberant welcome as the first World Cup match kicked off at its new stadium on Saturday. Fans paint Rustenburg red, white, blueIt was all systems go in Rustenburg on Saturday night as football’s version of the American Revolution played out in front of nearly 48 000 fans at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium. World Cup Fan Fests come aliveIt was not just the 84 490 fans seated in Johannesburg’s Soccer City stadium that celebrated the start of Africa’s historic World Cup. Aside from the estimated 500-million global television viewers, more than 400 000 fans celebrated at the 16 official Fan Fests and other public viewing areas both in South Africa and abroad. World Cup off to colourful startMore than 84 000 people witnessed the dawn of a new chapter in South Africa’s history when the 2010 Fifa World Cup kicked off in true African style at Johannesburg’s Soccer City Stadium. Soccer City welcomes the world homeAs Johannesburg’s flagship Soccer City stadium seethed in a mass of yellow and brightly coloured flags, the hum of tens of thousands of vuvuzelas was suddenly overcome as Gripen Fighter jets burst overhead.

Asian Values: Loosening Up?

first_imgIn early December 2005, when the Crazy Horse Paris started its shows in Singapore, a topless dance revue, it attracted a lot of criticism in the media. Letter writers and commentators accused the show “of exploiting women, being chauvinistic, archaic, outdated, immoral, sleazy, a threat to marriages and a poor example to children.”“Soft porn has finally landed here…officially,” said a Singaporean blogger. Commenting on these reactions, humor writer Neil Humphreys quipped: “I am sure it also contributes to global warming and the hole in the ozone layer.”Questions were being asked: Is Crazy Horse Paris a step forward or a step backwards for Singapore?At the heart of this controversy is the debate over “Asian values.” Since the rise of the Asia’s tiger economies (Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore) in the last quarter of the twentieth century, the “Asian values” debate has been centre-stage. The main thesis of Asian values is the appealing notion that Asians sacrificed individual aspirations for the greater good of society. Historically, the unusual economic growth experienced within East Asian countries pushed the socio-political structures of these countries under the spotlight. The success of these countries as well the economic awakening of giants like China and India, coupled with the friction that has resulted over “trade protectionism, economic conditionality, democracy and human rights” have made the “Asian values” debate political. “Asian values’ is a fundamentally racist term,” says Fulbright scholar Ravi Veloo, managing director of Media Campus, Singapore. “Riding on rising Asian economic power the way a parasite rides on a healthy host, infects the Asian mind with a sense of false psychological well-being by looking at the former colonial masters in a negative light, and presenting good values as ‘Asian,’ ignoring the rest of the world where such values are embraced. I am embarrassed for those who use this term,” he adds.Veloo is referring to the idea of “Asian values” invariably being seen in the context of an East-West dichotomy, where “Asian values” celebrate the community over individualism, the family, frugality, respect for learning, hard work, public duty, teamwork, in contrast to the perceived breakdown of the family, decadence, hedonism, excessive individualism, lack of teamwork, fecklessness, and ill discipline in the West. “One commonly cited example of Asian values is close-knit families,” says Veloo. “But what about African and Latin American societies where families are also closely knit. Are they Asian societies?” he asks.He is also not comfortable with the allegation that the West is inherently morally debased. “Another common derisory example of Western values is the overt sexuality of westerners, as if India did not invent the Kama Sutra,” he says. He adds: “We also ignore the fact that large conservative groups of Americans make up the Bible belt who reject the so-called Hollywood values. By the way, no church in the world puts up sexually suggestive figures in places of worship, unlike certain Asian places of worship.”Finally, he asks, “In which part of the world is AIDS, transmitted primarily by sex, the biggest rising problem? How could this even happen in one of the homes of ‘Asian values’?” The debate has taken political ocvertones with leaders such as Mahathir bin Mohamad, former prime minister of Malaysia and Lee Kuan Yew, the former prime minister of Singapore, exhorting for a renaissance of “Asian values,” in concert with their economic rise,, in contrast to the socially and economically deteriorating Western societies.“The Asian values debate was something Lee Kuan Yew, forced into the public domain in the 1980s,” says P.N. Balji, former editor of Today and The New Paper. “He framed the debate with Chinese philosopher Confucius as the pillar. Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s main fear was the loss of respect for elders (read the authorities) as the onslaught of Western values through Hollywood movies and American lifestyle gained prominence.”After the Asian financial crisis and the new wave of globalization aided by information technology, says Balji, “the preaching of values disappeared. Today, Singapore is even more plugged into the Western world than ever before. Differentiating between eastern and western values makes no economic sense. Singapore realizes that too, like many other ideological debates here, has been dumped into the dustbin of politics.”Ameerali Abdeali, a bureaucrat and community leader in Singapore, says: “Both Western and Eastern cultures have been influenced by historical events and media exposure. Values are a subset of these cultures. Western and Asian values may differ considerably, for example, values such as filial piety and discipline are associated with Eastern culture and materialism and individualism are largely regarded as Western value. However, it would be misleading to suggest that one set of values is inherently superior to the other. Both have their strengths and weaknesses. So I am not for the outright rejection of one value system over the other.”Crazy Horse Paris seems to be playing pretty well as Singaporeans loosen up.Singapore authorities hope the Crazy Horse Paris topless cabaret, which debuted in December, will help shake off the country’s staid   Related Itemslast_img read more
