Gunman commits suicide at University of Texas

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

A man wearing a ski mask and carrying an assault rifle apparently killed himself in the library of the University of Texas in Austin, Texas earlier today.

The university was placed under lockdown and all classes were canceled as a result of the incident. Nobody else was hurt, but police are still looking for a possible second gunman. Art Acevedo, the chief of Austin police, said that officials are also considering the possibility of explosives left by the suspect. Armored vehicles were seen moving around the campus in response to the event, as well as {{w|SWAT team|SWAT teams}, bomb-sniffing dogs, and police helicopters. An ambulance was seen around 9:00 a.m. CDT (1400 UTC) at the University of Texas’ Perry-Castaneda library.

The school’s website included a notice this morning, which read: “The person involved in this morning’s shooting on campus has been confirmed dead on the sixth floor of the Perry-Castaneda Library from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. Law enforcement are searching for a second suspect. If you are off campus, STAY AWAY. If you are on campus, lock doors, do not leave your building.” The gunman was reportedly killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and no shots had been fired by law enforcement officials.

The shooter has not yet been identified, and the reason behind the incident is not yet known. Witnesses described the man as wearing a dark suit and ski mask, and carrying an assault rifle. Randall Wilhite, a professor at the university, said that he heard gunshots while going to class and saw the suspect heading toward the library just after 8:00 a.m. CDT (1300 UTC). The gunman appeared to be firing shots randomly. “When I pulled up in my car, he stood right in front of me and didn’t stop running but turned in my direction, fired three shots into the ground to the left of my car and kept running,” said Wilhite. The gunman had the chance to shoot students, added Wilhite, but he did not appear to be targeting them.

The school, which has around 50,000 students, sent out an alert around that time warning students to stay where they were. Robby Reeb, a senior at the school, said that “a guy sprinted past me screaming, ‘There’s a guy with a gun.’ I looked up and saw a man in a ski mask, wearing a suit, and carrying an assault rifle. And I called 911.”

Police said that the gun used in the shooting was an AK-47, and that they were examining two different crime scenes: where the shots were fired outside, and where the gunman was found dead in the library. Police would not say whether he was attending the university. Chief Acevado said that there were “reports of a second suspect that was wearing a beanie with a long rifle, wearing blue jeans and a black top” that “may or may not be a white male.”

Several hours after the lockdown began, police allowed students to leave the university’s campus, although nobody is still allowed to enter.

The school was also the site of a shooting spree on August 1, 1966, in which university student Charles Whitman fatally shot fourteen to sixteen people and wounded another 32 before being himself killed by law enforcement authorities; reports of the exact death toll are inconsistent. Whitman, a former U.S. Marine, shot students from the observation platform of the school’s tower. That event was the deadliest school shooting in the United States until the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

Try New Healthy Recipes For Kids With A Food Swap

by

IronKids

Anyone with young children knows how difficult it can be to encourage healthy eating habits. Families are frequently too busy to cook at home, and often eat out. Our efforts are further thwarted by advertising agencies appealing to our children, and convenience foods are notoriously poor choices for our health. For parents committed to feeding their children healthy meals, finding new and interesting recipes can also be a challenge. Food swaps are a way to get families cooking together, making healthful food for kids, and offer variety as well as a chance to socialize with other families committed to better eating. Read on for tips on how to start a food swap in your community.

The Basics Of Starting A Healthy Food Swap

The model for a food swap is simple. Invite families to participate in making healthy recipes for kids and grownups. When you meet, each member of the group will share portions of their meal with the other participants. The end result? A fridge or freezer full of lunches and dinners at a fraction of the cost. Some families do this on a weekly or monthly basis — often enough to ensure there are always easy meals on hand for busy weeknights when no one feels like cooking. Trading meals can also help families save money by reducing the temptation to eat out.

Start By Getting The Word Out, Then Sort The Details

Start advertising a swap by mentioning it to family and friends. Talk to the parents of your children\’s classmates and peers from after school activities. Anywhere you run into parents is a great place to get the conversation going about sharing healthful food choices. Don\’t forget how powerful a tool like social media is in sparking discussions and making connections. You may find support for your idea through a friend of a friend on facebook or twitter. You can also try posting notices at your local coffee shop or community center.

When you have a group ready to start sharing their favorite family recipes, it\’s time to plan. Decide how often you\’ll meet up and where. Poll the group for whether they prefer to sign up for meals so there is variety, or if each event will be a free for all. Swappers may prefer to prepare their meals in advance and deliver them to a member\’s house, and rotate until everyone has hosted a swap. Some small groups enjoy preparing their meals together, making the process of cooking healthful foods a social activity kids and parents can enjoy together.

Final Tips For Sharing Healthy Recipes For Kids

Whether your swap is casual or a big social event your family looks forward to, enjoy it! When you commit to preparing healthy meals for your family — and make it fun — your kids will take notice. Make it easy for children to get involved, and make some great memories together. Reinforcing the importance of healthy eating while spending time with family and friends will give your children a gift of health that may last a lifetime.

Officials: Two soldiers and over 30 insurgents killed in Pakistan

Officials: Two soldiers and over 30 insurgents killed in Pakistan

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

At least 30 insurgents and two Pakistani soldiers died in a fierce fire fighting between Taliban rebels and security forces in the Orakzai region of the North-West Frontier Province. Officials stated that the gun battle started when the insurgents attacked a military base with rockets and mortars. A spokesman for the Pakistani army in Peshawar, the capital of the North-West Frontier Province, the Lt. Col. Nadeem Anwar said that the attack “started at midnight and continued until early Monday morning”. According to local government official, Sajjad Ahmad, troops opened fire aided by artillery when about 200 insurgents attacked a checkpoint. Ahmad told AFP news agency and stated that “[t]he attack was repulsed and up to 32 rebels and two soldiers of paramilitary Frontier Corps were killed”. Eight soldiers were wounded in the attack.

According to Khaista Rehman, a local administrative official, preliminary reports “suggest 35 to 40 militants have been killed.” While senior paramilitary officials confirmed such death tolls, no official figure was given.

As reported by an anonymous Pakistani military official, “39 militants were killed including their commander Saif-ur Rehman and four security officials…Nine security officials were wounded and seven hideouts were also destroyed,” he noted to the AFP.

The United Nations said that it might have to close projects for assisting the people of Pakistan as only one-fifth of the funds they had requested was collected. The UN had appealed for 537 million dollars in February to aid the one million people dispersed due to recurring conflicts in the northwestern parts of Pakistan, near the Afghanistan border.

“The response by the international community to this appeal is inadequate,” Martin Mogwanja, humanitarian coordinator of UN for Pakistan told reporters. “Humanitarian actors responding to the needs of the people are concerned that some of the projects may have to be suspended because of lack of finances,” he added.

Only 106 million dollars had been donated to the body, only 20 percent of the total appeal. Mogwanja said that they were in dire need of the remaining portion of the fund and 1.3 million had been displaced in the northwestern parts of the country, against a total of 3.1 million last year.

Meanwhile, on Monday, five others died in attacks in the Abottabad District over the renaming of the North-West Frontier Province. Earlier this month, several people were killed during a political meeting to celebrate the renaming.

What Is Tylenol?}

Click Here To Know More About:

Submitted by: Jonny Michaels

Information about Tylenol

Don’t use more than the recommended ammount. An overdose of acetaminophen can cause serious damage. The highest amount of acetaminophen for grown up person is one gram (1000 mg) per dose and four grams (4000 mg) daily. Taking more acetaminophen could damage the liver. If you drink more than three drinks per day, talk to your family doctor before taking acetaminophen and don’t use more than two grams (2000 mg) daily.

Do not use this medicine without first talking to your family doctor; if you drink more than 3 alcoholic beverages per day then you suffer from cirrhosis (alcoholic liver disease).

Do not use other over-the-counter, cough, cold, and allergy, pain relievers without asking your doctor or pharmacist. Acetaminophen (sometimes called APAP) contained in multi-drug combination shortened. Read the label to use any other medicine to determine if it contains acetaminophen or APAP.

Do not use Tylenol if you are allergic to paracetamol.

If you have these conditions, you must need a dosage adjustment or very special tests to use these drugs safely. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about using Tylenol if you have:

* liver diseases or

* A history of alcoholism.

It is not recognized if Tylenol can harm an unborn baby. Before using acetaminophen, talk to your family doctor if you are pregnant. Paracetamol can go into breast milk and may hurt a nursing infant.

Is Tylenol safe?

Tylenol (acetaminophen also known as paracetamol) is in the news recently. Most of the stories I’ve ever seen were in fact correct, but I have a couple people who read it wrong. I thought I would try to do things correctly.

An advisory committee to the FDA recommended reducing the maximum dose of 1000 mg and 650 mg over-the-counter acetaminophen.

The dose of 1000 mg is available with a prescription. It also recommended the abolition of painkillers like Percocet Vicodin and that the combination of drugs and paracetamol. It proposes the elimination of paracetamol over-the-counter cold remedies disadvantages, the disadvantages of cough medicines and related products, which combine with other drugs, acetaminophen. Advisory committee recommendations are not binding but the FDA usually follows.

Some people believe that the FDA has found that acetaminophen can be dangerous. The danger is that if you take too much can damage the liver. The information is new only that paracetamol overdose is now the leading cause of liver damage resulting in estimated 1600 cases of liver failure per year.

When properly used at recommended doses, paracetamol is one of the safest medicines we have. There is little cause side effects. It is the drug used during pregnancy. We use it even for pain and fever in infants. The alternatives are dangerous aspirin can cause syndrome Reye, non-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen which can cause kidney damage gastrointestinal bleeding.

The maximum recommended dose of 1000 mg four times daily or 4000 mg per day in total. There are exceptions: people who should have a liver disease that leads to drink large amounts of alcohol, or take less than Coumadin. Some other drugs interact with acetaminophen metabolism and increase the standard dose less effective.

Horse flu damage spreads

Horse flu damage spreads

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

As the Federal Labor Party calls for an inquiry into the outbreak of Equine Influenza, federal Opposition leader Kevin Rudd said “if there is a hole in the quarantine system, it needs to be plugged straight away.”

Federal Minister for Agriculture Mr McGauran has cautioned against a rushed judgment that failures at the Eastern Creek Quarantine station was the cause of the outbreak. But an unidentified former quarantine official believes its the most likely source.

Mounted Police patrols during the APEC meeting scheduled for Sydney next week have been canceled, as to plans to bring additional horses from interstate. Deputy Commissioner Andrew Scipione said “It won’t stop us being able to protect dignitaries, the public or police at any planned protest”

Organisers of the World Youth Day Papal mass plans of holding the event at Randwick Race course are also doubt. Vice President of the Randwick Trainers Association Mr O’Shea said of the current outbreak “We are going to take a massive financial hit now…”

“If we go through both World Youth Day and equine influenza that would be the death knell for training at Randwick,” Original plans for the Papal mass required 10 weeks where trainers would not be able to use the Randwick facilities, a revised plan which would use the venue for 3 days was suggested.

Mr O’Shea said the three-day plan was “totally unworkable” as it would require 24 days of disruption.

Australia’s largest wagering company Tabcorp Holdings LTD announced it has lost an estimated A$150 million after the cancellation of last weekends racing, this caused it share price to drop 4.6% on Monday.

A Tabcorp spokes person said “Based on its experience to date, if Australian racing (thoroughbred and harness) were not to resume until next weekend, Tabcorp expects that the loss in turnover will be in the order of A$150m” Further falls are likely with A$1.5 billion in Melbourne Cup and Spring carnival turnover under threat if the outbreak causes cancellation of races.

Tatersalls spokesman said it would have to run into months before it had an significant impact on their earning. Sportsbet said they stood to lose A$20m in turnover each weekend, with A$50m turnover at risk for the Melbourne Cup.

An independent study into the 2005 Melbourne Cup conclude it contribute A$318m into the Victorian economy. The racing industry has called on the Government to setup National disaster relief for the industry.

Peter V’Landy, Chief Executive of Racing New South Wales said “Jockeys can’t earn an income unless they’re riding. You’ve got stable hands, catering staff, totalisator staff and, you know, there are a lot of small businesses. I think this is a natural disaster for the racing industry. It’s a very big industry, it’s one of the top three in Australia, so we are, we are seeking now for financial assistance to these people so they can meet their financial commitment.”

Pupils fed through gates, school criticised

Pupils fed through gates, school criticised

Friday, September 15, 2006

Schoolchildren at Rawmarsh Comprehensive School in South Yorkshire, England, are being fed fish and chips by their parents through the school gates at lunchtimes because parents do not believe their children are being given enough choice of food at lunchtime.

The parents are standing outside the school gates in a cemetery to take the orders of food from the children, and then go and pick up the food for them. Parents say that this is because the children do not like the quality of food being served in the school cafeteria, and so the parents are only giving the children what they want – which is a hot and tasty lunchtime meal.

Head Teacher John Lambert has lashed back at the parents, calling the delivery of food through the gates immoral and stating that it is not “helping the children or their school” by bringing the junk food in. He also stated that “[The School] aims to provide good quality food which is within government healthy eating guidelines and helps the children’s learning in the afternoon”. Parents have defended the delivery of food by saying that not only are they receiving orders for burgers and chips, but also for salad rolls, jacket potatoes, and other healthy foods.

How To Create A Powerful Attraction With Your Man Make Him Crave You Completely

Click Here To Know More About:

The key to a life changing, deeply satisfying relationship with a man is connecting with him on all levels. You know that. We all do. The problem comes in when we try and make that happen. Most women rely on their own inner instincts when it comes to romance. Sometimes that works out wonderfully. Other times it’s a disaster. If you want to create a powerful attraction with your man you have to understand how to appeal to him on a deeply emotionally level. It sounds challenging, doesn’t it? It’s actually quite simple once you have the insight that will help you make it happen.

In order to create an intense attraction with him you have to connect with his heart. There are certain things a woman can do that will make her utterly irresistible to a man. Not one of them has to do with having a certain body type or wearing a particular fragrance. In fact, the way you look will have little to do with how close you can draw him to you. All men are looking for a woman who makes them feel better about themselves. If you can do that and do it very well, you’ll never again have to doubt his feelings for you.

The most common relationship mistake that women make when they are trying to draw a man in is they focus too much energy and time on themselves. It’s understandable how this happens. You want him to think you’re ravishing and beautiful so you work towards looking a certain way and you rehearse saying certain things. Men see right through this. They find it unappealing because they know the woman isn’t being true to herself or to him.

YouTube Preview Image

Here’s what you should be doing instead if you want to bond with him on an emotional level. Embrace the person he is. Make him feel great about himself and what he can offer to you. The easiest way to do that is to compliment him. Be genuine when you’re doing this. You obviously don’t want to go overboard and make him think you’re being disingenuous. Choose the things about him that you most admire and then let him know how grateful you feel to have someone like him in your life. Specifically mention the qualities in him that you find most appealing.

You should also look to him to help you when the timing is right. Men want to be our heroes. They love coming to the rescue and saving the situation. Ask him for his assistance if you are doing something you know he’s great at. Maybe it’s painting your bedroom or you need help choosing a new car. If you look to him, he’ll feel invaluable to you. That’s exactly how you’ll create an unquestionable attraction with him.

Apple collecting location data from iPhone, iPad

Apple collecting location data from iPhone, iPad

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Apple Inc.’s iPhone and iPad periodically send location information back to the company, according to new reports. The data is transmitted to a secure database that only it can access, Apple claims.

Bruce Sewell, an attorney for Apple, sent a letter to two US Representatives last year, discussing the company’s data collection techniques and policies. The thirteen-page letter states that location information is recorded and sent to Apple every twelve hours, but only if the user enables the device’s location settings.

Apple began building a location database of its own when it decided to stop using similar services offered by Google & SkyHook Wireless. Location data is used in social networking applications and call routing.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Democratic Massachusetts Representative Edward Markey said, “Apple needs to safeguard the personal location information of its users to ensure that an iPhone doesn’t become an iTrack.”

Such data collection is not unique to Apple. Google’s Android operating system uses similar technology to provide location-based services to its users. Google has said that it also uses the data collected to provide accurate traffic data through its “Maps” applications on both Apple and Android devices. However, the company declined to comment on the latest findings regarding its data collection.

Apple was also recently in the spotlight after it was discovered that the iPhone and iPad were retaining location data on the device itself. This information is collected in an unencrypted file and is not transmitted elsewhere. The data file reportedly contains a variety of information, including longitude and latitude, cell phone tower identification data, wireless hotspot identification, and timestamps.

India set to install panic buttons on buses to combat sexual assault

India set to install panic buttons on buses to combat sexual assault

Friday, May 27, 2016

The Indian Government announced on Wednesday they will issue a notification to ensure all buses are fitted with panic buttons to prevent sex-related violence occurring on buses in India. The motion was introduced by Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. Installation of the buttons is set to become mandatory on June 2.

Tests are under way on 20 buses running from Rajasthan to New Delhi. Buses are to have panic buttons, a GPS-enabled vehicle tracking device, and CCTV cameras. The new buttons are located at the front doors and when pressed, a police control room has the ability to view live footage recorded inside the bus.

Last month, the government announced that as of 2017, mobile phones can’t be sold in India without a panic button. With the press of a single key, the panic button alerts emergency services that assistance is required.

Since a fatal sexual assault three and a half years ago on a bus in New Delhi, accompanied by increased rates of sexual assault, the government has been pressured to help women avoid the dangers of sexual assault. The bus sexual assault three and a half years ago resulted in India-wide protests, and laws regarding sexual assault were overhauled.

According to India’s National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in 2014 New Delhi reported 1,813 rapes, more than any other Indian city. In more than 80% of rapes across India, the victim knew the rapist. In data from 2013, the rapists in 539 cases were parents, in 2,315 cases other relatives.

In 2012 the NCRB said the country had 24,923 reported rapes. However, this number grew over the following year, with 2013 seeing 33,707 reported.

In 2013, NCRB said New Delhi saw 1,636 rapes reported, with an Indian average of 92 women per day. The New Delhi cases alone account for more than four per day.
