first_imgPaterno’s remarks came a day before the Orange Bowl, when a reporter asked about Florida State linebacker A.J. Nicholson, who was accused of sexual assault and sent home before Tuesday’s game. Paterno replied by talking about past suspensions of Penn State players. He then added: “There’s some tough – there’s so many people gravitating to these kids. He may not have even known what he was getting into, Nicholson. They knock on the door; somebody may knock on the door; a cute girl knocks on the door. What do you do?” “I think if you were present, you understood he meant no malice,” D’Elia said. “If you heard his tone, he really thought it was too bad for everybody. He was concerned for everybody.” No charges have been filed against Nicholson, although police in Florida said the matter remains open. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – A leader from the women’s rights group NOW is seeking the resignation of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno over comments he made about an alleged sexual assault. Joanne Tosti-Vasey, president of the National Organization for Women in Pennsylvania, said Sunday that she was “appalled” by Paterno’s comments last week and that they represent an institutional insensitivity that endangers women. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson“Geez. I hope – thank God they don’t knock on my door because I’d refer them to a couple of other rooms,” Paterno continued. “But that’s too bad. You hate to see that. I really do. You like to see a kid end up his football career. He’s a heck of a football player, by the way; he’s a really good football player. And it’s just too bad.” Tosti-Vasey issued a news release calling for Paterno to apologize and step down from the post he has held for 40 years. She sent an e-mail to Paterno and the university president the next day, but said Sunday she has not heard back from either. “Allegations of sexual assault should never be taken lightly,” the statement reads. “Making light of sexual assault sends the message that rape is something to be expected and accepted.” Penn State spokesman Bill Mahon said Sunday that Paterno’s comments were taken out of context. A spokeswoman at the NOW headquarters in Washington said the organization’s president, Kim Gandy, supports the call for Paterno’s resignation. Guido D’Elia, communications director for Penn State football, said Paterno made his remarks in the larger context of distractions in the bowl-game environment. Nor, he said, did Paterno intend to make light of the assault allegations. last_img read more

first_img The local boys, who had Goth-style makeup and piercings and wore black clothing and nail polish, said they felt ostracized at Quartz Hill High and wanted to get revenge in retaliation for being teased, deputies said. The boys had been on probation in connection with a 2003 assault in which a 14-year-old boy was sodomized with a metal rod, deputies said. Deputies said the 17-year-old admitted to a plan including shooting students and using improvised explosive devices. Deputies said the 15-year-old told them the plan was to kill all of the students who had made fun of him at school and then commit suicide. The teens had attended Quartz Hill High School but were transferred to other schools in the fall because of past discipline problems. The 15-year-old enrolled at Desert Sands Charter School and the older boy at Littlerock High School. The investigation started when a girl contacted a Quartz Hill High vice principal and said she had been told by friends that the 15-year-old did not like her and was planning to kidnap her and cut off her arms and legs.

In announcing the boys’ arrests last week, sheriff’s deputies said the teens had found bomb-making instructions on the Internet and detonated practice bombs in the desert. The two were planning a Columbine-style attack for next Valentine’s Day, officials said. On April 20, 1999, 12 students and a teacher at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., were shot to death by two teenage gunmen who then killed themselves. SYLMAR – Prosecutors want two teenagers charged with planning a Columbine-style attack at Quartz Hill High School to be tried as adults. The two, ages 15 and 17, appeared in Sylmar Juvenile Court on Tuesday and denied charges of conspiracy to commit murder. The younger boy also denied a charge of making criminal threats. The boys are due back in court Jan. 4 to have a date set for a hearing before a judge who will decide whether the teens should be tried in Juvenile Court or as adults. The maximum penalty possible in Juvenile Court is confinement by the California Youth Authority until age 25. If convicted as adults in Superior Court, the two could face life in prison on the conspiracy charge. last_img read more

first_imgWorld Magazine reported a surprise tidbit from history, to set the record straight: the first man in space was no atheist.  According to an urban legend, Yuri Gagarin, who flew a Soviet rocket in 1961, said that he didn’t “see any god up here” in space.  The quote has provided fodder for preachers ever since on the senselessness of atheism.  Alas, poor Yuri; it appears now that he was a believer and never said such a thing.    According to World, a professor at Russia’s air force academy, Valentin Petrov, claims that Gagarin “was baptized in the Russian Orthodox Church and was a believer whose roots strongly influenced him.”  The source of the spurious story was apparently some kind of game.  Other sources attribute the claim to Nikita Kruschev (see SOS Globe and Free Republic, for example).Well.  What do you know.  What do you know well?  Maybe you have repeated this story without knowing the facts; we all do that sometimes (email forwarding is one of the most unreliable sources of truth).  It’s nice to know the first man in space was not so dumb as to imagine that if he couldn’t see God in earth orbit, then God must not exist – or to even expect that God would be visible at all.  Not enough details were provided to know precisely what Gagarin did believe, but this can be a lesson for us – in not always trusting (and parroting) claims we hear.  A Google-search on “Yuri Gagarin Valentin Petrov God” will list many additional sources to check.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img19 May 2010With the kick-off of the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ fast approaching, South Africa is on track to issue free visas to ticket holders and to process the hundreds of thousands of visitors expected in the country next month.Addressing a committee on the country’s state of readiness for the World Cup in Cape Town this week, Home Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said Fifa employees were being awarded visas, and that the department had already issued 3 500 World Cup-related work permits.She said free event visas would be awarded to those with World Cup tickets, while dedicated lanes would be set aside for those coming to the tournament. Priority treatment would also be given to Fifa delegations and teams.Branded lanes, volunteersSpecific branded lanes were in the process of being set up at Durban’s King Shaka in Durban, Cape Town International Airport and OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.The department was also training volunteers to work at airports in assisting arriving visitors.While a new movement control technology system which was launched at OR Tambo International was being rolled out across the country, the department had also placed airline liaison officers at various airports for clearing passengers and would enable police to screen visitors before they arrived.“It means the bulk of the passengers we would know that they aren’t high risk by the time they arrive at our airports and therefore would be cleared much faster,” said Dlamini-Zuma, who added that the system was piloted, together with Egypt, at last year’s Confederations Cup.International hubsInternational airports in countries including Kenya, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Germany, India and Dubai had been identified as hubs where the majority of passengers would be passing through on their way to the World Cup.Discussions had been concluded with Kenya, Nigeria, the Netherlands, India, Hong Kong, Germany and the UK and negotiations were under way with Dubai, she said.Dlamini-Zuma said the department was working with South African Airways (SAA) to screen passengers before they came to South Africa, but added that this process had been delayed by the volcanic ash cloud over Europe in recent weeks.She said this would give SAA an advantage in that it would be quicker to clear immigration if you were flying the national airline.Land border pointsAt land border points, joint clearances were being set up, so that those passing through border checkpoints will only have to wait in a single queue, rather than going through one queue on either side of the border, she said.She said one such point had already been set up at the Lebombo border post at the Mozambique-South Africa.Other co-location points would be set up at the Zimbabwe border at Beit Bridge, Maseru and Ficksburg at the Lesotho border, Oshoek at the Swaziland border and at Kopfontein at the Botswana border.The department was also looking at introducing a transit visa for those that resided in neighbouring countries that passed through South Africa.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
