Colorado theatre shooting suspect was brilliant science student

first_imgJames Eagan Holmes came from a well-tended San Diego enclave of two-story homes with red-tiled roofs, where neighbours recall him as a clean-cut, studious young man of sparing words.Tall and dark-haired, he stared clear-eyed at the camera in a 2004 high school yearbook snapshot, wearing a white junior varsity soccer uniform – No. 16. The son of a nurse, Arlene, and a software company manager, Robert, James Holmes was a brilliant science scholar in college.The biggest mystery surrounding the 24-year-old doctoral student was why he would have pulled on a gas mask and shot dozens of people early on Friday in a suburban Denver movie theatre, as police allege.In the age of widespread social media, no trace of Holmes could be found on Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter or anywhere on the web. Either he never engaged or he scrubbed his trail.A longtime neighbour in San Diego, where Holmes grew up, remembers only a “shy guy … a loner” from a churchgoing family. In addition to playing soccer at Westview High School, he ran cross country.The bookish demeanor concealed an unspooling life. Holmes struggled to find work after graduating with highest honours in the spring of 2010 with a neuroscience degree from the University of California, Riverside, said the neighbour, retired electrical engineer Tom Mai.Holmes enrolled last year in a neuroscience Ph.D. program at the University of Colorado-Denver but was in the process of withdrawing, said school officials, who didn’t provide a reason.As part of the advanced program in Denver, a James Holmes had been listed as making a presentation in May about Micro DNA Biomarkers in a class named “Biological Basis of Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders.”advertisementIn academic achievement “he was at the top of the top,” recalled Riverside Chancellor Timothy P. White.Holmes concentrated his study on “how we all behave,” White added. “It’s ironic and sad.”From a distance, Holmes’ life appears unblemished, a young man with unlimited potential. There are no indications he had problems with police.Somehow, the acclaimed student and quiet neighbour reached a point where he painted his hair red, called himself “The Joker,” the green-haired villain from the Batman movies, according to New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who said he had been briefed on the matter.Holmes headed for the theatre in body armour, armed with an assault-style rifle, a shotgun and two Glock handguns, authorities said.Police said he started his attack by tossing a gas canister into the theatre, where he had bought a ticket for the midnight showing of “The Dark Night Rises,” the new Batman movie.A federal law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing probe into the rampage, said Holmes bought each of the four guns from retailers in the last two months.Holmes bought his first Glock pistol in Aurora, Colo., on May 22. Six days later, he picked up a Remington shotgun in Denver. About two weeks later, he bought a .223 caliber Smith & Wesson rifle in Thornton, Colo., and then a second Glock in Denver on July 6 – 13 days before the shooting, the official said.last_img read more

She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.Scroll down for an English translation of this postE novembro foi o mês que escrevi o projeto que realizarei nos próximos meses no Mali. Com o título “A arte de ser mãe na África “, tem como objetivo geral contribuir com a melhoria da saúde materna entre o grupo das jovens migrantes que trabalham como ajudantes familiares na região de Bamako, Mali, visando uma melhoria nos indicadores de saúde no grupo em questão.Dentre as atividades propostas, além do curso de formação em saúde com as jovens grávidas, desenvolvimento de novas estratégias de comunicação para o grupo, melhoria da comunicação ao nível das ONGs, gravação de vídeo-documentário também serão objetivos do projeto.Escolhi a fotografia como uma das técnicas artísticas a serem utilizadas nos primeiros encontros, como forma de melhorar minha comunicação com as jovens grávidas, visto as barreiras culturais e de língua que enfrentarei durante os encontros. As meninas poderão expressar os seus sonhos, medos, dúvidas e esperanças por meio de fotos tiradas por elas mesmas, sendo a fotografia um forte e universal meio de comunicação…Neste mês de novembro visitei alguns projetos da APAFE, ainda na área da proteção da infância, que procura reinserir crianças e adolescentes na escola. Segue algumas fotos e vídeos das visitas.Junto com duas novas estagiárias da APAF francesas que agora me ajudam no projeto, comecei a selecionar jovens migrantes que procuram a organização para a gravação de vídeos, com as suas histórias de vida e também procurando fazer um resgate das canções de ninar e outros aspectos da cultura local relacionada a gestação, visto o frágil vínculo materno-infantil que parece existir de uma forma geral no Mali. Segue uma entrevista com uma das meninas.No momento estou realizando visitas em outras ONG´s de Bamako que trabalham com as jovens filhas migrantes vítimas de gravidezes indesejadas e fechando parcerias para começar o projeto junto a estas outras organizações também. Ums delas, Bici Mali, oferece em sua estrutura acolhimento para as meninas grávidas e será uma das organizações contempladas com o projeto.Algumas das estatísticas das minhas pesquisas nas últimas semanas sobre a saúde da mulher no Mali:Population : 22 % composé de femmes en âge fertile. Le taux de fécondité présente un taux de 6.6 enfants par femme (chiffres de 2009)Mortalité infantile au niveau mondial (103/1000 bébés nés vivants en 2008)Mortalité maternelle étant encore une cause fréquente parmi les décès féminins, estimée en 2006 à 464/100000 habitantsConformément aux chiffres de 2009 du Ministère de la Santé du Mali, seulement 37% des femmes ont eu une couverture de consultations prénatales effectives40 % des accouchements ont eu lieu sans aucun type d’assistanceL’excision est estimée à 85% en 2009L’âge de la première gestation -18.9 ansLe groupe des adolescentes constitue 21 % des femmes en âge de procréerles chiffres du ministère de la santé montrent que 30 % des jeunes filles (adolescentes) ont au moins un enfant et 5% sont enceintesA l’âge de 17 ans, 4 filles sur 10 ont des enfants The Art of Being a Mother in AfricaNovember was the month I wrote what my project will accomplish in the coming months in Mali. Titled “The Art of being a Mother in Africa,” it aims to contribute to the overall improvement of maternal health among the group of young migrants who work as caregivers in the region of Bamako, Mali, seeking an improvement in health indicators in that group.Among the proposed activities (in addition to on-going training in health with young pregnant women) are developing new communication strategies for the group, improving communication at the NGO level, and a documentary video recording.I chose photography as the artistic technique to use in the first meetings as a way to improve my communication with the young pregnant women because of cultural and language barriers that we face during the meetings. Girls can express their dreams, fears, doubts and hopes through pictures taken by themselves, and the image is a strong and universal means of communication.In November I visited some projects of APAF (the organization of Ashoka Fellow Jacqueline Goïta), still in the area of protecting children, which seeks to reintegrate children and adolescents into school. Here some pictures of the visits.Along with two new interns from the French APAF who now help me in the project, I started selecting young migrants being helped by the organization to record video of their stories of life. I’m looking to revive the use of lullabies and other aspects of local culture related to pregnancy, given the fragile mother-child bond that seems to exist in general in Mali.At the moment I am performing research on other NGOs working in Bamako with the young migrant victims of unwanted pregnancies and closing partnerships to get the project together with these other organizations as well. One of them, Bici Mali, in its structure provides shelter for pregnant girls and will be one of the organizations awarded the project.Some of the statistics of my research in recent weeks about the health of women in Mali:Population: 22% of women are of childbearing age. The fertility rate has a rate of 6.6 children per woman (2009 figures)Infant mortality in the world (103/1000 live births in 2008)Maternal mortality is still a common cause of death among women, estimated in 2006 to 464/100,000 population.According to 2009 figures from the Ministry of Health of Mali, only 37% of women had an effective coverage of antenatal care and 40% of deliveries took place without any kind of assistance.FGM is estimated at 85% in 2009The average age of first pregnancy – 18.9 yearsThe group of girls is 21% of women of childbearing ageFigures from the Ministry of Health show that 30% of young girls (teenagers) have at least one child and 5% were pregnant.At the age of 17 years, 4 out of 10 girls with children.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

The Cubs Curse Is Now More Likely To End Than To Continue

The Cubs Curse Is Now More Likely To End Than To Continue

With an 8-4 victory in Los Angeles Thursday night, the Chicago Cubs took a 3-2 NLCS lead over the LA Dodgers and now head back to Chicago just one win away from the World Series. According to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo prediction model, the Cubs have an 81 percent chance of capturing the franchise’s first pennant since 1945. And with a 51 percent probability of winning the World Series, Chicago is now more likely than not to end its 108-year drought and celebrate a title for the first time since 1908.Of course, Cubs fans have heard some version of this before. The team entered Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS under the same conditions — up three games to two, needing only to win one of the next two games (both at Wrigley Field) to clinch the pennant — but then disaster struck. They also led the 1984 NLCS two games to none, needing to win only one of the next three games in San Diego to advance (back when the league championship series used a best-of-five format). That advantage conferred an even greater pennant probability184 percent, according to a basic calculation that just looks at home-field advantage and the number of games remaining at each location. than Chicago has now or had in 2003,279 percent in both cases, according to the same measure we looked at for 1984. and they still managed to blow it. So Chicagoans can be forgiven if they’re not booking travel to Cleveland quite yet.And if the Cubs’ championship dreams end up being deferred to a 109th year, it’ll probably be because of the Dodgers’ pitching trio of Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen and Rich Hill. According to Elo’s starting-pitcher rating component, Kershaw is the best starter in baseball by a mile — he boosts LA’s Elo rating by a whopping 71 points when he takes the mound — and he’ll try to help the Dodgers stave off elimination Saturday night. Hill, LA’s starter for a potential Game 7, is no slouch either: He ranks 14th among starting pitchers in our ratings. And for his part, Jansen, the Dodgers’ closer, has completely shut down the Cubs when called upon in the NLCS so far, notching 16.2 strikeouts per 9 innings over a couple of multi-inning appearances.The Cubs will counter with their own aces — Game 6 starter Kyle Hendricks ranks seventh in Elo, and they’ll likely send 18th-ranked Jake Arrieta to the hill in Game 7 — but Chicago’s fate might come down to how well its lineup hits LA’s star pitchers. Although the Cubs’ offense has been incredibly uneven in this series, scoring eight or more runs in each of the team’s three wins and zero in each of its two losses, the common threads in those scoreless games have been that either Kershaw or Hill took the mound as the starter, and Jansen (who appeared in both games) came in to close it out. Before Chicago can pop champagne in Wrigley’s spacious, newly renovated locker room, they’ll probably have to score some runs off the Dodgers’ aces.But for now, the Cubs find themselves in a good spot. They’ve been the talk of baseball all season long; now they’re closer than ever to fulfilling their potential and ending the franchise’s absurdly long dry spell.

Carlos Hyde lightens Braxton Millers rushing load for Ohio State

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Ohio State has had one elite runner since the beginning of the season. Now, it looks like the Buckeyes might have two. Braxton Miller carried the majority of the load for the Buckeye offense through OSU’s first five games, tallying 577 yards on the ground while adding 933 yards in the air. The sophomore quarterback was by far the biggest threat in OSU’s running game. Miller carried the ball 90 times through five games, with no other Buckeye totaling more than 40 carries in that same span. The carries didn’t come easily for Miller, though, as the now-Heisman candidate took a number of hits, some of which caused him to miss action. The bumps and bruises Miller attained had many people – including players and coaches within the Buckeye program – calling for someone on the OSU offense, specifically a running back, to give Miller some relief. Carlos Hyde answered that call over the last two games. The OSU junior running back has run for 296 yards on 50 attempts in the Buckeyes’ most recent two games. Hyde followed up a 28 carry, 140-yard performance against Nebraska on Oct. 6 with a 22 carry, 156-yard outing at Indiana Saturday. He has six total touchdowns – five rushing and one receiving – over the past two games. Hyde, who seemingly broke at least one tackle on every run he had Saturday, gave the credit for his burst onto the running game scene to the Buckeyes’ offensive line after OSU’s 52-49 victory against the Hoosiers. “You’ve got to thank those guys up front. They did their job. When they go, we go. So it was going pretty good today,” Hyde said. Hyde has taken some of the running-game load off Miller’s shoulders with his recent performances, but the Buckeyes’ quarterback is still running the ball. He’s running quite a bit, actually, and he should be, according to first-year coach Urban Meyer and Buckeye players. Miller totaled 23 rushing attempts for 149 yards and a score Saturday after running for 186 yards on 16 carries against Nebraska. He remains OSU’s most talented runner, according to his teammates. The difference between now and the first five games of the season, though, is that OSU’s rushing attack has gone from a single-handed, almost-heroic one-man effort to a two-headed monster. And that’s a major positive for Meyer, who had little to take away from the Buckeyes’ narrow victory at Indiana Saturday. “We are 7-0 and we ran the ball for 350 yards and had two guys really haul it running the ball (Saturday),” Meyer said. OSU didn’t get off to a great start against Indiana, as the Buckeyes trailed, 14-10, midway through the second quarter. The Buckeyes took control of the game by halftime and brought a 24-14 lead into the break. The OSU defense collapsed in the second half, allowing 35 points. It was runs from Miller and Hyde that allowed OSU to hang on to win. Miller had a 67-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Hyde added two scores of his own – the first, a 14-yard shovel pass, pushed OSU’s lead to 14 points and the second stretched the lead to 18. “They started off slow. But they came back, and came back in a flurry,” Meyer said. “The good thing is that I saw possession of time around 36 minutes. There are some real strong positives in (the running game) right now.” There are not only positives, but also historic numbers. Saturday night marked just the fifth time in OSU history – and the first time in 37 years – in which two players had 100-plus yard performances in back-to-back games. The last Buckeye players to match Miller’s and Hyde’s totals over the past two games were former running backs Archie Griffin and Pete Johnson in 1975. It’s probably safe to say that OSU has its running game rolling right now, and it is something that Buckeye players say will be very hard for opposing defenses to stop. “It’s weird. With coach Meyer, everyone thought we’d be throwing the ball everywhere but I would say we probably have one of the best rushing attacks in the country,” said OSU senior wide receiver Jake Stoneburner. “With Carlos and (redshirt sophomore running back Rod Smith) coming along pretty well, and then with Braxton probably being the best runner in the country, I’d say people have a lot to worry about with our rushing attack.” OSU is scheduled to return to action Saturday at noon against Purdue at Ohio Stadium. read more

City workers began $309,000 worth of repairs in March, completing the renovations on time and $121,000 under budget.Mayor Kevin Faulconer and City Councilwoman Jennifer Campbell, whose district includes Ocean Beach, reopened the pier just in time for Memorial Day weekend.“It just wouldn’t be summer in San Diego without the Ocean Beach Pier so we made getting it fixed and reopened before Memorial Day a top priority,” Faulconer said. “The intensity of this year’s storms did a number on this treasured landmark, but the work we’ve completed ensures it will be safe for residents and visitors to enjoy.”The pier opened in 1966 and attracts more than 500,000 visitors annually. City officials are in the process of drafting a plan to evaluate and make permanent repairs to the bridge; the plan is due to be released later this year, according to the mayor’s office.The pier is the second longest on the west coast and the longest concrete pier in the world, according to the city.“Many thanks to Mayor Faulconer and the wonderful city staff who repaired our Ocean Beach Pier so we can have it open for Memorial Day weekend to kick off the summer,” Campbell said. “We are grateful for this landmark pier and the beautiful sights of our oceanfront that we are able to enjoy because of it.” KUSI Newsroom May 24, 2019 San Diego reopens Ocean Beach Pier KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News, Traffic & Accidents FacebookTwitter Posted: May 24, 2019last_img read more
