Mayor caught stealing in Little League theft?

first_imgADELANTO – The mayor of this High Desert town was arrested Tuesday along with his wife for allegedly stealing more than $20,000 from Little League coffers over three years. Jim Nehmens, 50, and Kelly Nehmens, 44, were taken into custody by investigators from the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office and charged with three counts of grand theft by embezzlement. If convicted, they could each face up to nine years in prison. They posted $60,000 bail and were expected to be released late Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately known whether they had retained attorneys. A message left for Nehmens at his office was not immediately returned. Prosecutors said they began investigating the couple in September after they received a complaint about possible missing funds from the Adelanto Little League account. In October, authorities served a search warrant at the Nehmenses’ home and seized a number of documents and records. Nehmens told the Victorville Daily Press at the time he was innocent and said he believes it was a “personal issue.” Prosecutors believe that between 2004 and 2006 the couple stole more than $20,000 from Little League fundraisers, mostly from the annual fireworks sale. The couple has been involved with Little League since 1999. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Repeated `super X-rays’ pose risk, especially to children

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsThe risk from a single CT, or computed tomography, scan to an individual is small. But “we are very concerned about the built-up public health risk over a long period of time,” said Eric J. Hall, who wrote the report with fellow Columbia University medical physicist David J. Brenner. It was published in today’s New England Journal of Medicine and paid for by federal grants. The average American’s total radiation exposure has nearly doubled since 1980, largely because of CT scans. Medical radiation now accounts for more than half of the population’s total exposure; it used to be just one-sixth, and the top source was the normal background rate in the environment, from things like radon in soil and cosmic energy from the sun. A previous study by the same scientists in 2001 led the federal Food and Drug Administration to recommend ways to limit scans and risks in children. Millions of Americans, especially children, are needlessly getting dangerous radiation from “super X-rays” that raise the risk of cancer and are increasingly used to diagnose medical problems, a new report warns. In a few decades, as many as 2 percent of all cancers in the United States might be due to radiation from CT scans given now, according to the authors of the report. Some experts say that estimate is overly alarming. But they agree with the need to curb these tests particularly in children, who are more susceptible to radiation and more likely to develop cancer from it. “There are some serious concerns about the methodology used,” but the authors “have brought to attention some real serious potential public health issues,” said Dr. Arl Van Moore, head of the American College of Radiology’s board of chancellors. But CT use continued to soar. About 62 million scans were done in the U.S. last year, up from 3 million in 1980. More than 4 million were in children. Since previous studies suggest that a third of all diagnostic tests are unnecessary, that means that 20 million adults and more than 1 million children getting CT scans are needlessly being put at risk, Brenner and Hall write. Ultrasound and MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, scans often are safer options that do not expose people to radiation, they contend. But they put out a lot of radiation. A CT scan of the chest involves 10 to 15 millisieverts (a measure of dose) versus 0.01 to 0.15 for a regular chest X-ray, 3 for a mammogram and a mere 0.005 for a dental X-ray. The dose depends on the type of machine and the person – obese people require more radiation than slim ones – and the risk accumulates over a lifetime.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Euro 2016: Croatia 2-1 Spain: Ivan Perisic seals comeback victory

first_img Ivan Perisic celebrates his winning goal 1 Ivan Perisic scored three minutes from time to earn Croatia a well deserved victory over Spain, securing top spot in Euro 2016 Group D in the process.Alvaro Morata gave La Roja an early lead, and some glorious play suggested they would be dominating the game – with a bundle of goals to come.However, the Croats grew into the game, and started to show their true talent before Nikola Kalinic scored on the cusp of half-time, and Perisic grabbed the winner right at the end of the game.Morata’s goal – his third of the tournament – came just minutes into the game, as he finished off a lovely team move to hand his side the lead.David Silva had the ball in the inside right position, and played a perfect reverse pass into the area – taking three Croatian defenders out of the move in the process.Cesc Fabregas had timed his run to reach the ball, before sending it across the face of goal for Morata to tap home.It was a perfectly worked team goal, and no less than Spain deserved in a half in which they played some glorious football.Nolito went close after more Silva magic, before the Mancheser City playmaker tested Subasic from range – although the keeper was positioned well to deflect the shot.Despite all of Spain’s intricate passing moves, Croatia were not being overawed, and created chances of their own.Ivan Rakitic captailised on a dreadful mistake from David de Gea to send a delightful chip over the keeper, but he could only watch on as it struck the frame of the goal before bouncing off the line and clear.It was a sign that Vatreni had the talent to strike their opponents, and on the cusp of half-time the equaliser was finally secured – Kalinic sending a neat finish past De Gea after Rakitic had flicked on Ivan Perisic’s right-wing cross.The second period started, with Spain dominating much of the possession but failing to seriously test Subasic, and Rakitic and Perisic the centre of consistent Croatian counter attacks.It was from one of these counters that Marko Pjaca registered the first good chance of the half, sending a bicycle kick just wide of the near post after some great wing play from Perisic and Darijo Srna.Sergio Ramos flashed a free header wide of Subasic’s goal, and as Croatia turned up the pressure, they were caught on the counter by Spain and conceded a penalty.Silva was brought down by Vrsaljko, and although there was little contact, the spotkick was awarded.Ramos stepped up to strike towards goal, but Subasic was more than a match to push the attempt wide – although there were calls for the penalty to be retaken given how far off his line the keeper was when the ball was kicked.Croatia pushed and pushed for a second goal, and were dominating the game with Spain starting to show the pressure.And the goal eventually came, Perisic breaking down the left and into the box, firing a low shot at goal. Aided by a deflection, the ball flew past De Gea at his near post, and sent Croatia top of the table heading into the Round of 16.last_img read more

Floats taking shape

first_imgPASADENA – Crushed white rice, ground split peas, seaweed, dried flower petals and flaxseed – all are ingredients for a colorful Rose Parade float. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! • Photo Gallery: 12/29: Rose Parade floats And volunteers were hard at work Thursday morning adding color and texture to floats, meticulously gluing on raffia string by raffia string, bean by bean. Forty-eight floats will be ready to roll Monday morning for the Rose Parade. “It’s very detailed,” said volunteer Anna Ylvisaker during a break at the Rosemont Pavilion, where some floats were being primed. “But it’s very satisfying.” The Woodland Hills resident estimated that she has put in about 40 hours this year, her ninth year as a volunteer. Floats have to be decorated with organic materials, said Jason Jones, crew chief for the Ronald McDonald House Charities float. Some floats will feature moving parts, tiki torches, firing canons and fog machines. One of the largest is the American Honda float, measuring 51 feet tall by 100 feet long, said Larry Palmer, spokesman for Phoenix Decorating Co. While thousands of spectators will view the parade from the sidelines, and countless more on their TV sets, 12-year-old Karie Guirguis will watch the crowds while riding on the Ronald McDonald House float. The Pinon Hills resident has undergone six operations for brain cancer and was selected by the nonprofit organization for the honor. A tumor was discovered in her left foot when she was a little over 4 months old. Her mother, Susan Knight, stayed at the Ronald McDonald House in Los Angeles when Karie was treated at the nearby Childrens Hospital. Karie will be seated at the foot of a giant bed on the float, titled “Dreaming of the Future.” “It’s gonna be awesome,” she said when she stopped by the pavilion for a visit. “I’ll be shouting out to my family and friends, `We love you!”‘ Though dry decorations can be put on in advance, the fresh flowers will come today and Saturday. Floats will be trotted out of their shelters for judging Sunday. Should the unthinkable happen – rain – colors on floats may run and water-soluble glue, sound and animation systems will be at nature’s mercy. But the floats must roll down Colorado Boulevard regardless. With rain falling on the parade only nine times in its 117-year history, dryness “is a good tradition to continue,” Palmer said. “We keep our fingers crossed and we trust the arrangement the Tournament has made with the powers that be up in the sky,” he said. “The only plan we have is to move forward.” patricia.ho@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4586 For More Infolast_img

Hub Snub

first_imgGeographically similar hubs under the same airline roof just don’t work. We learned that when American Airlines pulled the plug on its Nashville and Raleigh/Durham hubs, when Delta did the same at Cincinnati (too close to its Detroit hub), and Memphis (too near its Atlanta base).Now comes word that United Airlines is slashing service at Cleveland Hopkins International (too close to its Chicago O’Hare operation). By June UA’s daily departures from CLE will have plummeted from the current 199 to 72.United CEO Jeff Smisek says the hub has been losing money in recent years.“United has tried post-merger (with Continental Airlines) to make Cleveland work,” says Josh Marks, CEO of the airline data company masFlight, “but The local economy just doesn’t support a hub…It is more efficient for United to route connections over [Washington] Dulles and O’Hare.”Not only is proximity to bigger same-airline hubs a factor, so too, asserts Marks, are new U.S. Federal Aviation Administration regulations mandating more stringent rest and duty time for pilots.January 4, 2014 FAA imposed new limits on the amount of time U.S. pilots can be “on duty” and available to fly – whether they do so or not. Marks also says FAA has made it more difficult for airlines to recover from weather disruptions. That’s because the time pilots spend on the ground during those delays counts against the new limits.United isn’t pulling out of Cleveland wholesale. Like American at Nashville and Raleigh/Durham it intends to retain a strong shadow presence at Cleveland. It will still offer nonstop service to key destinations such as New York, Boston and Florida, retaining as many as 20 nonstop destinations.MasFlight’s Marks says he “expects low-cost carriers to step in and “fill the larger spoke [routes from CLE] that United discontinues. As for the smaller communities now served from Hopkins International. “It’s unlikely that LCCs will fill those holes.”last_img read more

Layar Looks to Create the App Store of Mobile Augmented Reality

first_imgTags:#start#startups chris cameron Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Over the past few months, we here at ReadWriteWeb have been hard at work putting together our upcoming premium report on marketing in the augmented reality (AR) space. From our research we’ve discovered that for several years, desktop “webcam AR” developers have made created multi-million dollar businesses while the younger “mobile AR” companies have yet to really break the bank. Today, however, Dutch mobile AR company Layar may change the mobile AR landscape, as it has announced it will allow developers of AR layers to monetize their creations on the Layar platform.Of the major mobile AR browsers, Layar, available now on Android phones and making an anticipated return to the iPhone later this month, has the widest selection of content to browse through. In a press release today, the company boasts 375 active layers, 1200 layers in development, and over 1 million users of its application. Previously, businesses could create their own layer and place it in the free Layar directory; now those same business can reap the commercial benefits of augmented reality. When the service launches in March, Android users will be able to purchase layers from directly within the Layar application, and the iPhone version will likely make use of the in-app purchase function. “Layar will facilitate global mobile payment processing and distribution in all currencies,” the company announced today. “Producers can fully focus on content – without having to worry about mass market distribution, developing for multiple mobile platforms, or financial administration.”Layar is not the first company to attract commercial AR content, but they are the first to create a platform for businesses to sell their content through Layar. In the past, Layar and other AR browsers like Wikitude and acrossair have provided commercial content on their browsers, but now businesses can put a price tag on their content at the individual level, not just on partnerships with the browsers. Layar also announced today that the company had boosted its capital, raising $3.4 million in funding from Sunstone Capital and Prime Technology Ventures. Just as Apple created the App Store ecosystem on the iPhone, Layar will be providing an opportunity for businesses small and large to take advantage of its rapidly growing AR platform. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more
