Stoned Driver Crash Risk Grows as Legal Pot Spreads in the U.S.

Car accidents are happening more frequently in
states that have fully legalized marijuana.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
announced the finding in two new studies.

The group compared car crash insurance claims in
four states that legalized pot to nearby states.

It found the frequency of the claims rose about
six percent higher than in states where pot is illegal.

In another study, it found a five percent increase
in the rate of crashes in states that legalized pot.

David Harkey, president of the Insurance Institute,
said the findings were concerning.

“We’re seeing a consistently higher crash risk in
those states that have legalized marijuana,” he said.

U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson arrived at his home in Turkey's Izmir on Friday (October 12) according to a Reuters cameraman, after leaving a court that earlier ruled he be released.

The court sentenced Brunson - whose case has been at the centre of a row between Washington and Ankara - to three years and 1-1/2 months in prison on terrorism charges, but said he would not serve any further jail time.

Dressed in a black suit, white shirt and red tie, the North Carolina native wept as the decision was announced, witnesses said. Before the judge's ruling he had told the court: "I am an innocent man. I love Jesus, I love Turkey."

The pastor, who has lived in Turkey for more than 20 years, was put in prison two years ago and has been under house arrest since July.

U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson will likely return to the United States after a court in Turkey ruled on Friday (October 12) that he should be released, Brunson's lawyer said.

Asked whether Brunson would go to the United States, Ismail Cem Halavurt said: "He will probably leave."

The U.S. military has a plan to fly Brunson back to America on a military aircraft, officials told Reuters.

One of the officials said that Brunson could return to the United States as soon as Friday. A Pentagon spokeswoman told Reuters that the expected plan involved flying Brunson through Germany on the way back to America but did not specify timing.

A Turkish court ruled on Friday that the American evangelical Christian pastor at the centre of a row between Ankara and Washington could go free, a move that could be the first step towards mending ties between the NATO allies.

The court sentenced Andrew Brunson to three years and 1-1/2 months in prison on terrorism charges, but said he would not serve any further jail time. The pastor, who has lived in Turkey for more than 20 years, was put in prison two years ago and has been under house arrest since July.

President Donald Trump says he's "open-minded" about stop-and-frisk policing.

He made the comment as he met with rapper and producer Kanye West at the White House.

Trump earlier this week called on Chicago to adopt the strategy, in which large numbers of people are temporarily detained, questioned and sometimes searched for drugs and weapons.

Trump had said that "stop-and-frisk works."

But West, who's from Chicago, tells Trump that this strategy is detrimental. Here's what West said: stop-and-frisk does not help relationships in the city.

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it," and says, "They have to do something."

Stop-and-frisk was used extensively in New York City until it was deemed unconstitutional because of its impact on minority residents. Chicago reached an agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois in 2015 to curb the practice.

West also credits Trump with stopping a potential war with North Korea and is encouraging Trump to swap his usual Air Force One jet for a hydrogen-powered plane.

In a nearly 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again." West also says that many people believe that if someone's black, then that person has to be a Democrat.

The White House had said that Trump and West would discuss a range of issues, including manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago, which is where West grew up.

Melania Trump- I'm 'the most bullied person'

First lady Melania Trump says she could be "the most bullied person" in the world, judging by "what people are saying about me."

She made the remark during a television interview in which she promoted her Be Best initiatives, which take on online bullying. Critics have pointed out that her husband, President Donald Trump, routinely mocks people for their looks and for what he says is a lack of talent or intelligence.

"I could say I'm the most bullied person in the world," Mrs. Trump said in the interview segment that aired Thursday on "Good Morning America."

Mrs. Trump said her Be Best campaign is focusing on social media and online behavior in part because of "what people are saying about me."

"We need to educate the children of social emotional behavior so when they grow up ... they know how to deal with those issues," she said.

The first lady also said there are people in the White House whom she and the president can't trust. She didn't name names but said she let her husband know about them.

"Well," she said, "some people, they don't work there anymore."

Asked if some untrustworthy people still work in the White House, she said, "Yes."

The Trump administration has dealt with an anonymous senior official's newspaper op-ed column critical of the Republican president and with numerous staff departures. This week, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley announced she's leaving at the end of the year.

Archaeologists uncover 2,000 yr-old inscription of the word Jerusalem in Hebrew

2018-10-09    17 views
Israeli archaeologists unveiled on Tuesday a 2,000-year-old inscription believed to be the first complete Hebrew spelling of the word Jerusalem as known in its current form - Yerushalayim.

The stone was unveiled at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and will go on display to the public on Wednesday.

It was discovered last year on the outskirts of Jerusalem during excavations that uncovered a Roman structure.

Experts say it is the only stone inscription from the Second Temple period that has the entire spelling.

The only other known instance is an inscription on a coin dating back to the end of the Second Temple period.

The inscription on the stone in Aramaic, using Hebrew letters, reads: "Hanania, son of Dudolos from Jerusalem".

David Mevorah, Israel Museum's curator of Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine archaeology said the purpose of the building upon which the inscription was written is unknown.

But, he said, the find is important as it shows how the city's inhabitants referred to Jerusalem at the time.

"It is the first time we find an inscription mentioning Jerusalem in the way we pronounce it today, Yerushalaim," Mevorah said.

He said it is likely Hanania was an artist-potter who took up the name from Greek mythology.

Two other finds will be exhibited alongside the newly-found inscription: a Greek mosaic from the 6th century and a coffin of the son of a high priest with Hebrew writing.

Trump Administration Reviewing Contracts With Fetal-Tissue Providers
Della.sun
2018-10-09    0 views
lHello and welcome to Epoch Times News. I’m your host Angela Anderson and today we will be talking about Trump Administration Reviewing Contracts With Fetal-Tissue Providers

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) says it’s reviewing contracts with fetal tissue providers after dropping a contract it had with a California-based provider earlier this week because of sourcing issues.

On Sept. 24, HHS announced the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) canceled a contract with Advanced Bioscience Resources, In c., located in Alameda, California, because it was “not sufficiently assured that the contract included the appropriate protections applicable to fetal tissue research or met all other procurement requirements.”

The nearly $16,000 contract, awarded in July, was used to “develop testing protocols,” by injecting the tissue into lab mice, according to HHS.

The agency also said it would review all other acquisitions of fetal tissue to ensure they comply with the law, and would be looking into alternatives for research receiving HHS funding.

“In addition, HHS has initiated a comprehensive review of all research involving fetal tissue to ensure consistency with statutes and regulations governing such research, and to ensure the adequacy of procedures and oversight of this research in light of the serious regulatory, moral, and ethical considerations involved,” the department said in a statement.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) still has contracts this year worth about $103 million for research involving fetal tissue, according to its own database. It’s not clear though how much of that is for the actual purchase of tissue from fetuses.


Earlier this month, 85 House members wrote to FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb addressing the agency’s contract with Advanced Bioscience Resources and urging him to cancel it.

The company was alleged to be upselling the tissue for profit, which is against federal law, the letter says.

It also said the matter was referred to the Department of Justice and the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, neither of which responded to an inquiry about an investigation by the time of publication.

“Unborn children are not commodities to be bought and sold,” the letter reads. “The practice of conducting research using the body parts of children whose lives have been violently ended by abortion is abhorrent. We urge you to cancel this contract immediately.”

While fetal tissue isn’t necessarily gleaned from aborted fetuses, the majority is, putting it inside the debate over the controversial practice of abortion that has people almost equally divided into “pro-life” and “pro-choice” camps.

Those who support using fetal tissue for medical research say that alternatives are limited, and don’t yet provide a complete substitute for the more malleable and adaptable stem cells found in fetuses.

tThose who oppose the practice say it’s unnecessary and unethical, and that selling aborted fetuses creates an industry around them, instead of putting money toward developing alternatives.

The Trump administration has shown that is squarely in the “pro-life” camp when, shortly after coming into office, President Donald Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits U.S. aid from going to NGOs that perform or advocate for abortion or forced sterilization.

Trump and ice President Mike Pence became the first president and vice president to address the March for Life in Washington this January, and Trump proclaimed Jan. 22 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day.

Shortly before that, HHS announced a new division of Conscience and Religious Freedom within HHS’s Office for Civil Rights to enforce federal laws protecting the right to conscience in health and human services.

“No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by one’s deepest moral or religious convictions, and the new division will help guarantee that victims of unlawful discrimination find justice,” OCR Director Roger Severino said in a statement.

To cheers of supporters in Topeka, Trump said he called Kavanaugh to congratulate him upon his ascendency to the high court.

Kavanaugh was sworn in as a justice on Saturday evening in Washington.

His nomination was marked by allegations of sexual misconduct when he was a high school and college student.

He denied the allegations, but nearly all Senate Democrats voted against his confirmation.

Trump said "radical Democrats" had become "an angry, left-wing mob" and "too dangerous and extreme to govern".

He urged Kansas voters to send Republicans to Congress.

Half a dozen GOP senators gathered to speak to reporters in a Senate briefing room Thursday afternoon.

"And the second thing we know for sure is there is no way anything we did would satisfy the Democrats," he said.

Mother Throws Pepper in Eyes of Alleged Bullies

The mother of a bullied Florida schoolgirl is in jail after allegedly throwing an irritating powder into the eyes of two of her daughter’s alleged attackers.

Simone Jones, 46, walked her 10-year-old daughter to Cambridge Elementary School in Cocoa, Florida on Oct. 1 when she saw two of the children her daughter said had been bullying her, according to Florida Today.

Jones approached the two alleged bullies, ages 8 and 11, and threw a powdery irritant into their eyes. The two children ran screaming into the school office.

Both alleged bullies told the school administration that a parent had confronted them and put something in their eyes. They also said Jones had told them, “Leave my daughter alone.”

“She confronted them and told them, basically, to leave her daughter alone, and threw what we believe is a cayenne pepper mixture with salt at the two females,” Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez told WFTV.

Other witnesses said they saw Jones pointing at a child’s face before the attack.

Jones fled the campus before school officials could find her. Jones was later arrested and charged with child abuse, disruption of a school function and battery.

She is currently being held at the Brevard County Jail Complex on an $11,500 bond.

At her arraignment, the judge ordered Jones to steer clear of the students and the Cambridge Elementary School campus if Jones was able to bond out, WFTV reported.

The school nurse treated the two students for burning noses and inflamed, tearing eyes. The nurse said red and white powder smelled like cayenne pepper.

Brevard County Sheriff’s officials told WESH that the powdery mixture included cayenne pepper and salt.

“We were told that her daughter was being bullied by these girls,” Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez told Florida Today. “But that doesn’t justify what she did.”

Daughter Allegedly Endured Months of Abuse

Larry Barkley, the husband of Simmone James, said that their daughter had been enduring bullying for months.

The parents had reported the bullying and school officials said they were investigating, but no action had been taken. Barkley said he and Jones were tired of the ongoing assaults on their daughter.

"My daughter's scared to death," Larry Barkley told NBC Miami. "My wife got to walk her to school and I don't think it’s fair."

Barkley told Fox News, "I stand by what my wife did for one reason. You do not attack no one's child. And beat them up, and have them afraid to walk the street or ride a bike."

Matt Reed, Assistant Superintendant of Brevard County Schools, told WFTV, “They reported the bullying—the alleged bullying—to school administration, which by law and policy, was doing an investigation of the bullying. That’s an extensive process.”

Cocoa Police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said she understood Jones’ action but could not condone it.

"Any mom is going to defend her child, but this is not the way to do it," Martinez told NBC Miami.

"You don't resort to violence to deal with it."

California Officer Helps Stranded Woman in Wheelchair get Home
A woman stranded on a Lancaster, California, road due to her electric wheelchair being out of power was aided home on October 2 by a local police officer.
Lancaster police received a call reporting a wheelchair causing a traffic hazard, and when they arrived they were surprised to see an elderly woman sitting in the chair. Lancaster Deputy Montanez decided to push the woman to her home around a mile away because the wheelchair was too heavy to be put in the police cruiser and couldn’t be left by the roadside.

China's missing movie star hit with big tax fines

If A-list Chinese actress Fan Bingbing can't pay $130 million dollars, she faces jail for tax evasion.

Fan had disappeared in June, sparking wild speculation as to her whereabouts.

On Wednesday (October 3), state TV suddenly read out official charges against her.

China has ordered her to pay millions in overdue tax and fines.

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) CHINA'S STATE TELEVISION NEWS ANCHOR, GU GUONING, SAYING:

"For taking a split contract so as to conceal actual income Fan Bingbing will be fined four times the value of tax evaded. For the use of a studio account to conceal the true nature of personal remuneration, there will be a fine of three times the value of tax evaded."

Fan responded in a long social media post.

She said she was 'ashamed of her behavior' and would pay the penalties.

The post also said 'without the good policies of the Communist Party and the state- there is no Fan Bingbing.'

The South China Morning Post reported Wednesday that Fan was released two weeks ago -

from what it called "residential surveillance" at a "holiday resort", used to investigate officials.

It also cited unnamed sources who said Fan had been transferred to Beijing for further investigation.

Reuters could not immediately reach Fan.

State media said police had put a restriction on her agent for attempting to conceal and destroy evidence during investigations in June.

The real-life drama over Fan has played out as Beijing has accelerated a crackdown on the film and entertainment industry.

That followed reports some of China's most famous actors had been accused of signing so-called 'yin-yang' contracts.

Those apparently set one figure as the real terms while a second lower figure is shown to tax officials.

State media say as a first time offender Fan will face no criminal charges if she pays all the money by an undisclosed deadline.
