Tourist shot in the face by ICE agent during family friend’s arrest files lawsuit

first_imgUtah778/iStock(NEW YORK) — An unarmed man allegedly shot in the face by a federal immigration officer earlier this month has filed a civil rights lawsuit against the agent and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.Erick Diaz Cruz, 26, was visiting his mother in the Gravesend section of Brooklyn on Feb. 6 when he awoke to “men’s voices and banging on the door,” according to the lawsuit, which was filed in the Eastern District.ICE officers were outside with his mother’s partner, Gaspar Avendaño-Hernandez, who was being targeted for removal.According to the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday, an unidentified ICE officer fired a gun directly at Cruz’s face. The bullet fractured multiple bones as it passed through Cruz’s left hand and into his left cheek, lodging behind his ear, according to the lawsuit.“This was not just an attack against me, but also an attack against the entire Latino community in the United States,” Cruz said in a statement. “Our community must come together to protest ICE’s violence.”Cruz was in New York from his hometown of Martinez de la Torre, Veracruz, Mexico, on a valid tourist visa, according to the lawsuit.“Along with millions of New Yorkers, we are heartbroken and sickened by ICE’s senseless and unjustified shooting of Erick,” said his attorney, Katie Rosenfeld of Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady. “Erick posed no threat to anyone, at any time. Erick’s face is shattered, and he and his family are traumatized.”The lawsuit said the shooting left Cruz’s life “forever altered,” adding that “what had started as a pleasant vacation with his girlfriend to see his family in New York, and a welcome break from his steady job as a municipal employee in Veracruz, Mexico, became a horrific, life-altering trip causing him grave and permanent injuries.”The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages and named the alleged shooter, “John Doe 1,” as a defendant.At the time of the shooting, ICE said in a statement that the shooting was provoked.“A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Fugitive Operations Team discharged at least one firearm in Brooklyn, New York, Thursday morning when officers were physically attacked while attempting to arrest Gaspar Avendano-Hernandez, a twice-removed illegal alien from Mexico with a 2011 assault conviction in New York City,” the agency said.ICE did not immediately respond to a request for comment from ABC News on Wednesday.Avendaño-Hernandez had been arrested three days prior to the shooting for possession of a forged instrument. ICE tried to take him into custody on an immigration detainer, but city authorities don’t recognize detainers unaccompanied by a signed arrest warrant.“This forced ICE officers to locate him on the streets of New York rather than in the safe confines of a jail,” ICE said in a statement at the time.The case became fodder for an ongoing dispute between the Trump administration and New York over its sanctuary policies that give some shield to undocumented immigrants from federal enforcement.Last week, the Trump administration said it will deploy 100 members of the U.S. Border Patrol Tactical Unit, a rapid-response security force, to assist ICE officers with removing undocumented immigrants from sanctuary cities like New York and Chicago.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Data governance – How to start

first_imgData governance is an organized discipline of people, process, and technology supporting a company’s data. Starting with data governance needs to be small enough that it is manageable but large enough that it makes an impact. Trying to govern too much at once can be overwhelming when you are starting. However, tackling something too small may not yield any results and give the feeling of time wasted. For example, if you decide to govern member data in a single department of your credit union, you will quickly find that you get member data from other departments, so you may need to govern those departments as well. Also, there may be other departments that use the member data this department provides, so governance quickly becomes something that has a company-wide impact.When you are thinking about what to govern, think about data domains. A data domain is a significant grouping of data that is important to you. Common data domains are member, vendor, employee, product, location, and chart of accounts.When you think about who to involve in data governance, you must look across the organization at all business functions. This makes sense because your employees across the organization are using the same data. For instance, someone might find a member as a prospect, while someone else helps them to get a car loan, and another person eventually helps them with a mortgage. The same member will receive various marketing materials over time and interact with employees in other departments regarding payments products or other member services. Throughout these interactions, employees are touching the data, updating it, adding new data to it, and so on. Since there isn’t just one group interacting with the data, you must recognize the collaborative environment that is necessary for effective data governance.There are three main challenges with data governance – identifying why you’re governing something, determining what to govern, and identifying who should be involved in data governance.Identifying the why – Knowing why you’re governing something is essential because it gives you your purpose/vision. It also gives you the story you need to tell people when you’re recruiting them to participate in data governance. Identifying why is also crucial if you need funding for the effort to cover costs associated with hiring consultants or purchasing tools.Identifying the what – After you define your scope for governance, document it in your charter so there are clear expectations. If you’re going to use templates, create those.  If you need tools, buy and configure them. If you’re building from scratch, document your requirements first before building and don’t forget to test.Identifying the who – Think about the reach of your organization and who needs to be involved. You need to have the complete support of people who are involved in the data you’re governing.Data governance isn’t difficult, but it requires organization. Careful planning will go a long way in making it a success. Take the time to prepare and don’t jump ahead before you’re ready.Where are you on your data journey?

French Researcher Reveals Successful COVID-19 Drug Trial

first_imgChloroquine, an old malaria drug, may help treat novel coronavirus, and the president says he will have an exciting announcement today in conjunction with the FDA possibly about the drug.Chloroquine is effective in treating SARS, and investigative studies have found it will be an effective treatment and prevention for COVID-19. And it’s an anti-inflamatory.An acclaimed research professor in France revealed successful results of a potential treatment for COVID-19, the coronavirus, The Connexion reports.What’s going on:Professor Didier Raoult, who works for the infection hospital l’Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire (IHU) Méditerranée Infection in Marseille, published a new video in which he explained that the COVID-19 patients who were treated “with the drug chloroquine had seen a rapid and effective speeding up of their healing process, and a sharp decrease in the amount of time they remained contagious,” according to The Connexion, an English site for French news.Chloroquine has previously been used to prevent and treat malaria. The drug was offered to 24 patients, who were among the first 24 to become infected in France’s southeastern region. Patients were given the drug for 10 days. Researchers monitored the patients since the drug can cause severe side effects. Raoult said those who did not receive the drug were still contagious after six days. Those who tried the drug were only 25% contagious, though.Janet Diaz, the head of clinical care for WHO’s emergency program, issued a statement in February about whether this drug could cure patients, saying it needs more trials. “At this moment in time there is no proven effective treatment for COVID-19 so that is clear at this moment in time. However there are ongoing clinical trials being done in China at this moment as well. The two that we’ve already discussed are testing the priority therapeutics that were prioritized by the WHO R&D blueprints and that includes lopinavir and ritonavir as well as remdesivir. For chloroquine there is no proof that that is an effective treatment at this time. We recommend that therapeutics be tested under ethically approved clinical trials to show efficacy and safety.”last_img read more

Foy comes good at Green Valley

Ged Foy who used to say he couldn’t handle Green Valley proved himself wrong today as he scored forty one points to win his flight by seven points, a score which will see a sharp reduction on his handicap. Terry Mangan has just returned from a few months in Ireland and has settled in quickly as he came second today with thirty four points. Russell Gilroy took the third spot with thirty one points.Support Pattaya Mail – Click HereIn the A flight Andy Featherstone kept up his very steady golf and was the winner with thirty seven points. We then had two players on thirty six points and here Lyle Blaw won the count back which went down to the last six holes to come second. Paul Pavloff was playing his last game with us for this year and although he lost the count back to Lyle to come third he still came away with the most money today as he had the only two of the day.Tuesday, Oct. 17, Crystal Bay – Stableford1st Craig Hitchens (17) 36pts2nd Andy Featherstone (5) 36pts3rd Paddy Naughton (18) 35pts4th Joe McArdle (17) 34pts5th Dan Hobbs (23) 33pts2’s: Dan Hobbs, Paddy Naughton and Andrew Purdie, one each.We were back with our friends from the PFGS in Crystal Bay after a long absence to find the course in excellent condition. We played the C and B courses in that order and while the Greens on the C course were a bit slow they were still in very good condition and the Greens on the B course were a bit faster. Unfortunately one of our group got mixed up today and went to the wrong course but for those who got there it was very enjoyable, not too hot and also not a drop of rain.As the course was around 6,400 yds and playing long the scores were reasonable with two people managing to play to their handicaps.Craig Hitchens came out on top with thirty six points as he beat Andy Featherstone who is still playing very steady golf in to second place on the count back. Paddy Naughton took the third place with thirty five points and Joe McArdle was fourth with thirty four. We then had three players on thirty three points with Pat Carty and Per Forsberg who was playing his first ever game with us losing the count back and Dan Hobbs winning it to take the fifth and last place for today and Dan also had a two to make it even better.Thursday, Oct. 19, Burapha – Stableford1st Pat Carty (28) 42pts2nd Andy Featherstone (5) 39pts3rd John Fenwick (20) 34pts4th Joe McArdle (17) 34pts2’s: Per ForsbergWe were here in Burapha for what was our penultimate visit for this year as the Sport Days are near at an end. We will miss it as it is very popular with our group and always in immaculate condition. We all played off the White tees today as the fairways are still soft with no run and again we played the A and B nines.Pat Carty really came in to form today and was a very clear winner with an excellent forty two points which included a blank on the seventeenth, a score which will see a sharp reduction on the handicap. Andy Featherstone probably thought he had done enough for another win as he had gone round in two over par gross for another excellent score of thirty nine points but today it wasn’t good enough and he had to settle for second place but still great golf.We then had three players on thirty four points and here John Fenwick won the count back to take the third place and Joe McArdle took the fourth on a count back over Joe Peters which went down to the last two holes.last_img read more

RTE STAR EILEEN KEEPS DONEGAL BUSINESSWOMEN IN THE PICTURE

first_imgSome of the ladies who took part in the event with special guest Eileen Magnier of RTE.RTE’s first ever female news correspondent imparted some of her years of wisdom to Donegal’s rising female business executives.Eileen Magnier was the guest speaker at last Wednesday’s Cross Border Gathering of Past, Present and Future Women in Business from Donegal and Derry Event at An Grianán in Burt.Eileen was so upbeat and her speech was so inspiring, according to the many who attended. In 1989 Eileen was the first woman to be appointed as an RTE correspondent & she knew how hard she had to work as a woman to stay in the job, she had to work harder than any man.She had to be clever, she had to be confident & she had to have a goal. That’s what has gotten her to where she is today.Her story ended with a little piece of advice to all the women attending “ “Prioritise, make sure the family don’t lose out, make sure you always make sure you have that little bit of balance”.The network was addressed by Mr. Michael Tunney, CEO, Donegal County Enterprise Board. Michael and the Donegal County Enterprise Board has been a supporter and funder of the network since it’s inception 13 years ago. He welcomed all the women in Business and Enterprise to the event from both sides of the border. Michael congratulated them all on having the belief to start their own business and that although his organisation was there to help, it was individuals and not agencies who create employment and Donegal especially has a high level of female business entrepreneurs.“There is a significant rise in opportunities, courses, programmes dedicated to female entrepreneurship through networks like Donegal Women in Business and Women in Enterprise Derry and he would encourage any women in business or thinking about setting up a business to join these networks. Michael continued to say that “Tell agencies or networks like ours what your business idea is, or if your business needs support and articulate your needs to us then you will get the support you need”.He finished off wishing everyone success and reminding the group -“When you talk as a collective, then government agencies and agencies like your local Enterprise offices will listen to you”.The event continued with Helen McDonnell from Women in Business Derry interviewing three local business owners from both sides of the border, Annette Houston from FM Cleaning, Patricia Hill from Stateside American Restaurant and Laura Campbell from Dog Ears, in an on the couch style chat show.Very relaxed and very informative, the three ladies gave honest stories about how they got to where they are today. It was followed by a Q&A session which very much included the audience and some interesting and important questions were put to the panel.The event finished off with Lunch in a lunch bag style table networking event, hosted by local industry experts from the world of customer service, marketing, social media, finance, HR, wellbeing to name but a few.Every one who attended got something from this event and should anyone wish to join the network you can email [email protected], it costs only €25 per year and the benefits like networking events that just past can be so beneficial to your future success.RTE STAR EILEEN KEEPS DONEGAL BUSINESSWOMEN IN THE PICTURE was last modified: September 13th, 2013 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:BusinessdonegalEileen MagnierLadiesRTElast_img read more

Man Is Man and Ape Is Ape: The Gulf Widens

first_imgNow that “human ancestors” from 300,000 years ago show comparable mental acuity to ours, the gradual upward slope to man looks more like a cliff.Neanderthal chieftan:  The big news from Clive Finlayson’s team this week is that Neanderthal cave sites have feathers – not just by chance, but by design.  The BBC News said that the cave’s inhabitants used feathers as “personal ornaments,” indicating that “Neanderthal thinking ability was similar to our own”  (see original open-access paper by Finlayson et al., “Birds of a Feather: Neanderthal Exploitation of Raptors and Corvids,” PLoS ONE 7(9): e45927. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0045927).  “The earliest observation of this behaviour in Gibraltar preceded the arrival of Modern Humans in Europe by several thousand years,” they said; “There is therefore no possibility that the practice was acquired from Modern Humans.”Many modern human groups, such as American Indians, have used feathers for decoration, rank, or status.  It’s an “exclusively human trait.”  The practice presupposes a mental appreciation for the beauty of feathers as well as the ability to obtain them in the first place.  Paleoanthropologists have assumed, based on the lack of cave paintings, beads and figurines at Neanderthal sites, that they had no appreciation for art. Finlayson’s team inspected nearly 1700 sites for evidence, and found numerous bird bones from which the Neanderthals apparently extracted feathers for decoration.  These findings fly in the face of “The prevailing paradigm among Palaeolithic archaeologists today,” they said – the notion that birds were too hard for dumb Neanderthals to catch:The large number of bones, the variety of species processed and the different temporal periods when the behaviour is observed, indicate that this was a systematic, geographically and temporally broad, activity that the Neanderthals undertook. Our results, providing clear evidence that Neanderthal cognitive capacities were comparable to those of Modern Humans, constitute a major advance in the study of human evolution.Retreat might be a better word.  The BBC News article shows an early 20th century drawing of a stooped over, hairy, ape-like Neanderthal with the caption, “Our views of Neanderthals have come a long way since this representation was painted in 1909.”  But again, this is a retreat “a long way” back to the prior paradigm: namely, that humans have always been uniquely endowed with reason and aesthetics, unlike the apes from which Darwinians believe humans evolved.Finlayson thinks this find is just the tip of the iceberg.  “It is showing that Neanderthals simply expressed themselves in media other than cave walls. The last bastion of defence in favour of our superiority was cognition,” he said; now, despite their differences, it must be acknowledged that “their processes of thinking were obviously very similar” to ours.We have shown that Neanderthals were associated with raptors and corvids of particular characteristics (dark remiges, scavenging or colonial cliff nesters) across the entire geographical space of the Palearctic and they directly processed their bones for their feathers. In this respect they were distinctly human. The absence of parietal art in caves occupied by Neanderthals, and also of bone and shell ornaments, is a key argument cited in support of the superior cognitive capacities of Modern Humans. Our results put this long-standing contention in doubt, by providing strong evidence that Neanderthals simply used media, other than cave walls, to express themselves.The point of the spear:  Another indication of mental acuity is the ability to fashion materials for organized hunting.  Who would have expected to find modern-looking spear points in coal dated 300,000 years old?  That’s what has been described in a press release from the University of Tübingen – the “oldest known weapons anywhere” – indicating that the designers were skilled hunters.  These were not flaked rocks for cutting up dead animals, but rather designed instruments for hunting live prey.  “Tools preserved in lignite show capacity for abstract thought, Tübingen researchers say.”What’s also interesting about the discovery is the site: a coal mine that till recently was soaked in water:The bones of large mammals – elephants, rhinoceroses, horses and lions – as well as the remains of amphibians, reptiles, shells and even beetles have been preserved in the brown coal. Pines, firs, and black alder trees are preserved complete with pine cones, as have the leaves, pollen and seeds of surrounding flora. Until the mining started 30 years ago, these finds were below the water table. The archeologists say they are now carrying out “underwater archaeology without the water.”More finds are expected from this extraordinary site in north-central Germany.  Already, they have found “a water buffalo in the context of human habitation, an almost completely preserved aurochs (one of the oldest in central Europe), and several concentrations of stone artifacts, bones and wood.”  The press release did not explain how any of these artifacts could be so well preserved in the presence of water for 300,000 years.Now, the evolutionary tale:  How are evolutionists going to explain the abrupt appearance of human traits farther back than they previously thought possible?  One theory appeared on the BBC News: a highly speculative idea by veteran paleoanthropologist Ian Tattersall that harks back to old social-Darwinian notions of advance through conflict.  “Conflict and ‘boom-bust’ explain humans’ rapid evolution,” the headline blared.  Tattersall knows that recent findings are problematic.  Speaking at a conference at Gibraltar, he said,“However you slice it, evolution within this [human family] has been very rapid indeed,” Prof Tatersall, from the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York, told the conference.  “I think it’s fair to say that our species Homo sapiens and its antecedents have come much farther, much faster than any other mammalian group that has been documented in this very tight time-frame.”  This phenomenon of accelerated evolution is known as “tachytely“.Giving something a name, though, is not the same as explaining it.  It’s hard to convince doubters that mere inter-group conflict, and coming down out of the trees, could “drive” human evolution at such a rapid pace.  If that were a law of nature, it would seem many other animals would have evolved bigger brains, art and cognition by now.  It also begs the question of who was the driver: was changing habitat and starting conflicts a cause or effect of cognitive ability?   Apparently someone at the conference thought about that.  “At the conference, Richard Wrangham from Harvard University offered an alternative view, questioning the role of conflict as a driver. He pointed out that human hunter-gatherers had similar rates of inter-group aggression to chimpanzees.”In PLoS ONE, “The Pace of Cultural Evolution,” (7(9): e45150. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0045150), Charles Perreault of the Santa Fe Institute argued that cultural evolution is faster than biological evolution “because of its Lamarckian nature and because cultural information is transmitted through different routes than genetic information.”  He compared rates of biological evolution with archaeological data.  His hypothesis, however, reasons in a circle: it assumes evolution to establish evolution.  It also begs the question of when the light of cognition turned on.  What, furthermore, was the source of genetic information and cultural information?  His ideas, thereby, would never convince a Darwin skeptic, who might point to the very evidence by Finlayson and the University of Tübingen cited above to argue that the evidence shows – in contrast to what evolutionists believed and taught for decades – that humans have always been humans, and apes apes.We need evolutionary paleoanthropologists like ambassadors need terrorists.  Don’t let them near the dynamite of scientific explanation.  They keep setting it off in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Explanation is powerful but dangerous.  It needs intelligent design for proper application.  It needs a real mind – not an evolved ape brain hit by cosmic rays – to understand the risks.  And it needs real morality – not game theory – to use the power for good and not harm.  Evolutionary anthropologists never catch on that their Darwinian explanation is like a suicide vest.  It destroys their own mind while flinging mental shrapnel around the classroom, the civilization, and the world.

Ind vs WI: Dhoni slams poor umpiring in first Test

first_imgIndian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday flayed poor umpiring in the first Test against the West Indies after beating them by 63 runs at Sabina Park in Jamaica.Dhoni said, “The match would have ended even earlier had correct decisions been made and we would have been in the hotel much earlier.”As many as three Indian batsmen — Dhoni (16), Virat Kohli (15) and Suresh Raina (27) — fell to dubious decisions which could have gone the visitors’ way.Kohli was the first one to be declared out following a debatable decision by English umpire Ian Gould in India’s second innings. Then Raina was given out off Devendra Bishoo while attempting a sweep shot. However replays showed there was no glove or bat involved. Dhoni was also unlucky as he fell to a no ball delivery.These umpiring decisions might open the debate over the use of umpire decision review system (UDRS) again, which the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has opposed.The BCCI has been opposing the UDRS and has refused its usage in the upcoming Test series in England.last_img read more
