first_imgiStock(BOGALUSA, La.) — A 12-year-old girl who was abducted from a hospital room by her armed grandmother has been found unharmed.Evelyn Miller, 66, was arrested by the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office at a hotel in Bogalusa, Louisiana, and her granddaughter, Adreana Miller, 12, was found with her after Evelyn Miller allegedly took Adreana from Ochsner Hospital at approximately 5 p.m. on Valentine’s Day.Authorities say that Evelyn Miller entered Adreana’s hospital room in an attempt to remove her from the hospital but when hospital staff intervened and tried to stop her she allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at them.“In making her escape from the location, she pushed one nurse to the ground and struck a security guard with her vehicle,” said the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in a press release on social media. “No one was physically injured.”Police obtained a warrant for the arrest of Evelyn Miller after the incident for charges of simple kidnapping, five counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, two counts of simple battery, and violation of a firearm-free zone.Miller fled with Adreana from Ochsner Hospital in a 2019 Toyota Sienna which was recovered a short time later.Miller and her granddaughter were located approximately 24 hours later at a hotel in Bogalusa, Louisiana, about 70 miles north of the New Orleans hospital she was taken from.“We extend our appreciation to our partners in law enforcement who assisted with this investigation, including the Louisiana State Police and the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office, and to our local media and members of the public who shared the information about the incident and helped us bring it to a swift closure,” said Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.While the girl was the subject of a statewide “child endangerment alert,” authorities said, it is currently unclear what Miller’s motivations were in taking her granddaughter.

first_imgLouis van Gaal has confirmed he is down to just one fit centre-back for Manchester United’s home game against West Ham on Saturday. Press Association Marcos Rojo is the only senior central defender available for Saturday’s match, the United manager revealed at his pre-match press conference on Thursday. Jonny Evans suffered a bruised ankle in the 5-3 defeat to Leicester and Tyler Blackett is suspended following his dismissal at the King Power stadium. Chris Smalling was injured in training on Wednesday and will not feature against the Hammers while Phil Jones remains sidelined with a hamstring problem, the United boss said. Van Gaal said: “All the three right-sided centre-halves are out. “I don’t know how long they will be out for. “Evans is a very difficult one. His bone is bruised a lot and we have to wait and see, to evaluate it. “Smalling yesterday ran out of the training session because he had stiff legs. “We have to see what that means. But I don’t take risks with players.” The injuries to Smalling and Evans have come at a terrible time for Van Gaal, who watched his weak defence crumble to a shock defeat at Leicester last weekend. The Dutchman, who has won just one of his opening six matches, will have to look for alternatives for the visit of West Ham, who beat Liverpool last weekend. Midfielders Daley Blind or Darren Fletcher could be used as emergency centre-backs. Van Gaal is also considering handing 19-year-old Paddy McNair his debut, but denied he would be taking a risk if he drafted any youth players into his starting XI. “They are always ready, I think,” the former Ajax boss said. “They have hunger to play the game and Manchester United youth education has a certain level that can provide that. “It’s a big difference (between youth football and the Barclays Premier League), but in one game you can show yourself.” Van Gaal is without another six injured players, including senior personnel like Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Ashley Young. “I have to admit that I have never been in this situation before (with injuries),” Van Gaal added. “It is strange. For me it’s difficult to understand. We are evaluating what we can do in a different way. “But you have to train on a certain level because otherwise you can’t play a game. “I have already said I have adapted to a certain level but you cannot train lower because you then can’t perform in the right way.” Despite United’s poor start, Van Gaal is not panicking about failing to deliver the club’s aim of a top-three finish. The former Holland coach admits this could be the hardest assignment of his 23-year management career though. “At this moment it is maybe yes (my toughest job),” said Van Gaal, who then repeated his call for calm among the United fans. “But we have to see us in a year and not in a week where we have nine injuries and a red card. “I don’t think you can judge that effect. “This is a big challenge. This club is in a transition. “At the start (on tour) we won all of our games in very difficult circumstances. Now we are in difficult circumstances and you can win. “We should have won last weekend – we had to win when we were 3-1 up.” last_img read more

first_imgWell, Murray had his Pro Day on Wednesday, and guess what? He didn’t measure for his height. He also didn’t run a 40-yard dash at his pro day or the Combine.SN’s MOCK DRAFT 3.0:Kyler Murray-to-Cardinals shuffles Round 1; 49ers, Jets benefitKyler Murray only weighs in at his pro day. No height measurement. Weighs in at 205.— Andrew Groover (@APGroover) March 13, 2019For context, Murray’s height was 5-10 1/8 at the Combine and he weighed in at 207 pounds.On one hand: Murray already had his measurements taken, so what does he gain by having them be taken again? On the other hand, though, it  a little weird for him to not just get his height measured a second time. It’s not like he has to have blood drawn. It’s a simple procedure. Why not just shut people up and have them take your measurement?Maybe Murray feels like his Combine measurements were such a big win that he didn’t want to risk a lower measurement. Your height does fluctuate throughout the day, and it’s at its best early in the morning.“The discs in your spine get compressed from being upright all day,” New York chiropractor Todd Sinett told Everyday Health. “As you sleep, your spine decompresses, and you regain the lost length.” There was a lot of talk about Kyler Murray’s height and weight leading in to the NFL Combine, but even after his official measurements were taken, there were some doubters out there.The most notable case was from an anonymous scout who told Dan Patrick, “I think that his height was inflated. Maybe it’s the tinfoil hat theory. I just don’t see it. If he refuses to measure at the pro day, that will be telling.” The Combine measurements are taken earlier in the day, and his pro day measurements were mid-afternoon. We’re not talking about a major difference in height, but Murray’s height has been so scrutinized that he may not want to deal with the headache of the press if the number comes in shorter than what he measured at his Combine.But at the same time, he’s opening himself up to stories like this that talk about why he’s not getting measured. It’s really a lose-lose situation. And at the end of the day, it doesn’t (or at least, it shouldn’t) matter if he’s 5-9 or 5-10. His play on the field should be what matters.This issue really won’t matter if he goes first overall to the Cardinals, like he’s projected, because all he has to do is impress Arizona enough to draft him. If another team has an issue with his height, who cares? He just needs one team to not worry about whether he’s tall enough to play quarterback.last_img read more

first_imgLondres, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City capitalised on Sadio Mane’s controversial red card to thrash title rivals Liverpool 5-0, while Manchester United lost their 100 percent record after a 2-2 draw at Stoke on Saturday.City goalkeeper Ederson was stretchered off in a neck brace after being caught in the face by Mane’s boot as he raced out to head the ball away, with the Liverpool winger dismissed for the clash late in the first half at Eastlands.City already led 1-0 through Sergio Aguero’s opener at that point and braces from Gabriel Jesus and substitute Leroy Sane completed City’s biggest win over Liverpool since 1937. “It was a serious performance. We played well all over the pitch,” Wenger said.Harry Kane reached his Tottenham century as the England striker’s brace inspired an impressive 3-0 win at Everton.Kane bagged his 100th Tottenham goal — and first this season — in the 28th minute, looping a long-range cross-shot over Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.Christian Eriksen increased Tottenham’s advantage with a close-range strike in the 42nd minute after Pickford spilled a Ben Davies shot.Kane bagged his second from Davies’s 46th minute cross to kill off Everton.Chelsea survived a tense finish as the champions made it three successive wins with a 2-1 success at Leicester.Great team victory. #mancity 5-0 #liverpool .Speedy recovery Eder, we stand by you ???? pic.twitter.com/MxfS83fuz0— Nicolas Otamendi (@Notamendi30) September 9, 2017Antonio Conte’s side took the lead through Alvaro Morata’s third goal for Chelsea as the Spain striker peeled away from Wes Morgan to meet Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross with a bullet header in the 41st minute.N’Golo Kante was a key member of Leicester’s title-winning team two years ago and the Chelsea midfielder returned to haunt his old club with a 50th minute long-range strike.Jamie Vardy got one back for Leicester with a penalty and Conte said: “We must be delighted. We were in total control and could have scored more.”Brighton secured their first top-flight win for 34 years, with Pascal Gross’s double clinching a 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at the Amex Stadium.Watford handed Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino his first league defeat, 2-0 at St Mary’s, thanks to goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Daryl Janmaat.Share on: WhatsApp At the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal eased the pressure on Arsene Wenger with a vital 3-0 win against Bournemouth. City are unbeaten in 12 Premier League games, their best run under Guardiola, while Argentina striker Aguero is now the outright leading non-European goalscorer in Premier League history with 124 goals.“After 10 v 11 it was a little bit easier for us and we played the second half the way we wanted to,” said City manager Pep Guardiola.Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “The decisive decision in the whole game was the red card. I don’t think it was a red card. Sadio didn’t see the goalkeeper.”After a blistering start to the season, United conceded for the first time in the league this term when Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting swept home from Mame Biram Diouf’s 43rd minute cross to notch his first Stoke goal.center_img Jose Mourinho’s side drew level at the bet365 Stadium as Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s corner in first half stoppage-time was headed goalwards by Paul Pogba before deflecting into the net off Marcus Rashford.The visitors moved ahead in the 57th minute when Mkhitaryan’s defence-splitting pass was converted by Romelu Lukaku after the Belgian forward’s initial effort was saved by Jack Butland.But when United defender Phil Jones stumbled at a Stoke corner, Cameroon forward Choupo-Moting was unmarked to head the equaliser in the 63rd minute.Despite dropping points for the first time in four matches, United remain top of the table, above neighbours City on goal difference.“It was a difficult match. My players, after the international break, are not the same,” Mourinho said.“I’m not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning.” Subjected to stinging criticism following Arsenal’s damaging defeats against Stoke and Liverpool, it took just six minutes for Danny Welbeck to lift Wenger’s gloom as the Arsenal striker headed home from Sead Kolasinac’s cross.France forward Alexandre Lacazette doubled Arsenal’s lead in the 27th minute, bagging his second goal since his pre-season move from Lyon with a curling strike from the edge of the area.Welbeck’s second goal, from Aaron Ramsey’s 50th minute pass, secured Arsenal’s first win since the opening weekend.– Ton up for Kane –Alexis Sanchez came off the bench in the closing stages for his first Arsenal appearance this season following the collapse of his mooted move to Manchester City on transfer deadline day.last_img read more

first_imgIn 2016 Garden State MOSAIC received the Unity award from the New Jersey State Human Relations Commission. Its teen affiliate program, MOSAIC (Mobilizing Our Students for Action to build Interfaith Community), was founded in 2013 when MCWRET member Sarbmeet Kanwal, an astrophysicist from the Sikh faith community, suggested organizing a program for teenagers. “I had the desire,” Jaffari said. “I love working with kids.” One of Jaffari’s three sons is a ninth-grader enrolled in the MOSAIC program. His two older brothers, now in college, participated in the group when they were in 10th and eighth grades. “I wanted my children to feel safe and to be educated,” she said. “It has benefitted my children tremendously.” To date, more than 100 teens have taken part in MOSAIC, with the majority remaining engaged with the organization after their year of education, leadership and service as ambassadors. “Seeing this in action brings tears to my eyes, it really does,” Lischin said. “I think it’s more than important. I think it’s crucial.” It is one of many events the nonprofit participates in throughout the year to build friendship and community among those of different religious and cultural traditions in Monmouth County. The teens also partner with local social service agencies, such as Family Promise, to help provide food and clothing to local families in need. In a time when there is so much “otherizing,” dangerously dividing members of various cultures and faiths into “them and us,” notes Stevi Lischin, Ph.D., it’s critically important to learn about our neighbors and understand not only what makes us different, but what we have in common. “Many of them come from very comfortable towns and they don’t realize what is in our own backyard,” Jaffari said. Each year on the weekend after Thanksgiving, MCWRET sponsors a community concert at the Unitarian Congregation of Monmouth County in Lincroft featuring music representing cultures and faiths from around the world. It was a mission that became an urgent one for Jaffari after 9/11 when, she said, she saw her religion being hijacked and demonized by the extremists responsible for the attacks. “I was asked to lead a program on mainstream Muslim’s response to extremism,” Jaffari said. “For me, I think the most valuable part of this was the faith sessions,” said Karkanis, who is Hindu. “It gives me a new perspective on religions and the differences they have between one another.” Fatima Jaffari, a Lakewood native who is Muslim, offered to help design the program for Monmouth County teens. Jaffari a member of the Monmouth County Human Relations Commission and a MCWRET member, has been working with the Freehold Clergy Association, the Human Relations Commission and MCWRET for many years to foster tolerance and understanding among the many faiths and cultures here in Monmouth County. Volunteerism is an important part of their year in MOSAIC. Each class decides what volunteer project they would like to participate in for that year. Teens also gain a firmerunderstanding of their ownfaith and culture as theyshare their traditions withothers. The teens, who represent many faiths and cultures, are invited to assemble into groups based on such simple preferences as whether they like vanilla ice cream or chocolate; comedies or action films; swimming or track. center_img Gaurav Karkhanis, a senior at Manalapan High School, is now an ambassador for MOSAIC after participating during his freshman year. Group meetings took place twice a month, with teens attending churches, temples, mosques and other faith communities where teens from that faith were responsible for doing a presentation about it for their peers. Monmouth County teens participating in Garden State MOSAIC visited a Sikh place of worship, known as a gurdwara, to learn about the religion. Each year, teens enrolled in the program visit Catholic, Protestant, Greek Orthodox, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and other faith communities to gain an understanding of their beliefs and practices and share their own in an effort to promote tolerance and understanding of differences while celebrating what they have in common. Photo courtesy MOSAIC MOSAIC members also build leadership skills by participating in the planning and preparation of group activities. In the past, MOSAIC members volunteered with the nonprofit Rise Against Hunger, gathering to prepare hundreds of sandwiches and traveling together to New York City to distribute the food to those in need. Another class packaged nearly 20,000 meals to send to Africa. By Eileen Moon During their year in the program, teens visit diverse faith communities, where they’re hosted by the congregation and are able to learn about the beliefs, food, holidays and other traditions associated with that faith and culture. As the teens group and regroup based on their preferences, they begin to talk and laugh together, getting to know each other as the multifaceted human beings they are rather than as one-dimensional members of a faith or culture different from their peers. Established in the early 1990s through the efforts of Rev. Harold Dean, leader of the Unitarian Congregation of Monmouth County, the mission of MCWRET is to enhance understanding and acceptance of religious and cultural diversity through educational programs and events that bring people of different faiths and cultures together. Information on joining MOSAIC is available on the group’s website at gardenstatemosaic.org. Once the teens complete their year of service and education in MOSAIC, they are eligible to remain involved with the group as MOSAIC ambassadors, mentoring other teens and speaking about the group to interested organizations. “They’re very passionate and very eloquent about their experiences.” Each year, when a new group of teens gathers to participate in the year- long inter faith education, volunteerism and leadership program sponsored by Garden State MOSAIC, facilitators guide them in a simple, ice-breaking exercise designed to demonstrate how much they have in common. In finding her own voice, Jaffari said, she realized the importance of providing a similar opportunity for her children – an opportunity to educate others about their faith and, in return, learn about the faiths and cultures in their community. The exercise is a small component of the teen leadership and education program that is co-sponsored by the Monmouth County Human Relations Commission and the Monmouth Center for World Religions and Ethical Thought (MCWRET). Lischin and her husband Robert Smith have been active in the organization since it was established some 25 years ago. “(The need for) Inter faith understanding didn’t start after 9/11,” Lischin said. “It’s as old as human beings. Different faiths share a history of outrageous contention and also common humanity and a wealth of wisdom and knowledge.” He also appreciated the volunteer opportunities MOSAIC provided. “It showed the importance of being involved in your community,” he said. last_img read more

first_imgThe Government of Liberia, through the Ministry of Health, and its partners, are meeting to discuss how to build a post-Ebola resilient healthcare delivery system in Liberia.It is no secret that the nation’s health sector completely collapsed in 2014 when the deadly EDV tested the “gains” that health stakeholders boasted they had attained before Ebola struck.The 3-day meeting, which is being held at the Paynesville City Hall, is aimed at assessing the nation’s healthcare system and also to arrive at a consensus on an investment plan for the health sector.The meeting, being attended by local and international partners, including the World Health Organization (WHO), European Union (EU), United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and World Bank (WB), will validate the country’s health system assessment report as a result of the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) and also build consensus on finalizing the post-Ebola investment plan for the sector as the nation moves toward building a resilient health system.According to the chairman of the Planning Committee for the meeting, Mr. Momolu V.O. Sirleaf, “the objectives of the meeting are to review and validate the health system assessment report; further review and refine critical investment areas for building a resilient health system and build consensus on the Investment and Transitional Health Plans.”“The meeting would also offer an opportunity for the country’s stakeholders to provide inputs into the national assessment findings that were undertaken by the Ministry of Health in order to provide key decisions in developing the health sector post-Ebola plan,” he further stated.The validation plan will build upon the 10-year Health Plan developed and launched by the government in 2011. Mr. Sirleaf clarified that the post-Ebola plan would be an add-on to the 10-year health plan.At the formal opening of the meeting yesterday, Deputy Health Minister Yah M. Zorlia, stated that prior to the Ebola outbreak, Liberia was successfully implementing its 10-year health program with some level of good progress. According to her, notable among the “gains” was the attainment of the Millennium Development Goal Four (MDG4), which is the under-five mortality rate reduction. In 2013, Liberia received praises from international bodies, including the United Nations, for meeting the MDG4.The nation had already gone three years into the implementation of the 10-year plan and stakeholders had planned to meet in October 2014 to evaluate the performance of the first three years when Ebola struck.“In March 2014 the Ebola outbreak started. This led to the breakdown of essential health services in Liberia,” Mrs. Zorlia added. She further stated that the EVD outbreak exposed weaknesses in the health sector and the healthcare delivery system of the country.“This needs to be addressed so that we can avoid the reversal of the gains we have made thus far; as well as build a health system that is able to withstand any future threats,” she stressed.The Minister of Health, Dr. Walter T. Gwenigale, assembled a team of health technocrats, who began planning for building a resilient health sector back in October 2014. The 10-year plan’s cost for the next seven years run into several millions of United States dollars.Affirming the Investment Plan, Dr. Gwenigale said, “This investment plan for building a resilient health system in Liberia represents an effort arising from the experience of the Ebola virus disease.“It highlights the Government’s priorities in re-building the health system to ensure it has the capacity, not only to provide the expected essential health services for the people of Liberia, but also able to identify and appropriately respond to future health threats of whatever form.”The Health Minister told the audience that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was awaiting the final document that would emerge from the conference. He further disclosed that the document is one of the papers that the President might take along with her to a donor conference to be held in Washington, D.C. “So let’s work and finish it so she can take it with her and see what we can do to raise funds to build a better health system than we had before,” declared Dr. Gwenigale. Representatives of various health partners who made separates remarks at the opening, all pledged to work with the Ministry as it strives to build a resilient health sector.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
