Regions: US US Representatives move to defund Wire Act enforcement 19th June 2019 | By contenteditor An amendment to a federal bill that determines funding granted to the Department of Justice seeks to block the money from being used to enforce its revised stance on the 1961 Wire Act. HR3055, the Commerce, Justice, Science, Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, Interior, Environment, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act, 2020, sets out federal funding for a variety of government departments and initiatives. Among the departments which will have its funding for 2020 established by the bill is the Department of Justice. However, should the amendment be accepted, the Department will not be able to use the money to enforce the Office of Legal Counsel’s stance that the Wire Act applies to all forms of gambling, and not just sports betting.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Pedari Guest House is a facility designed as a destination for eco-tourism in Iran. Not far away from the central desert of Iran, It is located in the ancient city of Khansar. City of Khansar is surrounded by the mountains which form a natural wall around the city. The Mountains are protecting the city from heat and create a favorable ecosystem and a picturesque landscape.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe project started with the intention to create a social space and an interaction hub for both, the locals and the visitors; a platform for the everyday activities of the locals, as they interact with the tourists, forming a socially sustainable economy. The project has created jobs and social opportunities to the people of Khansar while fostering a unique cultural identity.Save this picture!© Mohamadreza Rashed, Nasim Mosavar, Golnaz Bahrami, Ila DerisThe project has been a substantial actant in fostering local economy, during its construction; through engaging local work force, and after the launch of its operation, since it is again the locals that run the daily operations of the guest house. The guest house’s architecture is conceived as a spatial set up that is in total accord with its greater context; the neighborhood and the city. Its scenario, spatial organization, and material pallet is designed accordingly.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe very first spatial diagram of the project is informed by the existence of a garden on site. On the north side of the aforementioned garden, there is an old family house that was renovated as part of the project and contributes to the historic aura of the complex. The volume of the new building is placed along the eastern side of the garden. The new building is divided up into three smaller parts, allowing the project to find balance within the overall morphology of the existing urban condition and parcel divisions of the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Mohamadreza Rashed, Nasim Mosavar, Golnaz Bahrami, Ila DerisIn order to provide access to mountain views to all blocks, the middle one has a shorter stature. In addition to this, a series of voids and empty spaces within the spatial organization of the project, creates a connection between the parts of the building and their surrounding landscape, as well as, between the project as a whole and the city, allowing nature to continuously flow back and forth through different spatial pockets of the project and the city.Save this picture!© Mohamadreza Rashed, Nasim Mosavar, Golnaz Bahrami, Ila DerisThe empty spaces in-between the building blocks, allow for continuity of urban condition to the heart of the project via the extension of the city’s narrow streets as narrower walk ways and alley that run through the complex. After meeting the building volume, these alleys change into corridors and the interior space organizes itself along and around them. Hence, the underlying structure of the city is projected into the organizational logic of the project’s interiors.Save this picture!SectionThe relation between the alleys and the guest rooms and the way that they connect to one another and the landscape, can be experienced by walking through the project. Recreating the organizational logic of dominant housing typology in City of Khansar, every room in Pedari Guest House works as an individual house on its own. These little houses are independent from the public corridors; are extended to a semi open space that faces the garden, which looks at the fields and the mountains.Save this picture!© Mohamadreza Rashed, Nasim Mosavar, Golnaz Bahrami, Ila DerisIn the historical housing typology of the city, each room is literally called a house. These little houses with in the house, change characteristics during the day and night as their flooring is changed, to provide for different domestic activities. The carpet is the main actant of the spatial organization of the historic Khansarian house. During the night, mattresses are laid over the carpet to change it to a bedroom. As the sun rises and the day begins, mattresses are substituted by linen to change the room to a dining space for the family to eat together as they sit on the floor and around the set up. As the day advances, different domestic set ups are created around objects that are laid around the room to provide for the suitable mise-en-scène for various daily activities from eating and sleeping, to social gatherings of the family. The rooms of the house are hence independent houses on their own right, all connected thorough a back service corridor, and also to each other. This historic domestic typology is re-appropriated in conception of the spatial organization of the guest rooms.Save this picture!© Mohamadreza Rashed, Nasim Mosavar, Golnaz Bahrami, Ila DerisIn order to keep the authenticity of the old family house, it is renovated using recycled and reused materials from a nearby demolition site of the former town hall, built in the same era as the family house. Using local manufacturers, craftsmanship and materials, the project’s construction was completed with a low budget. Local work force was used in all aspects of construction process. Deploying local work force and construction techniques and technologies, contributes to the creation of a sense of place for the project. This has allowed for a modern interpretation of local identity that brings together new and old paradigms of space making in a contemporary manner. As such, the project puts two architectural artifacts, the old building and the new extension, with over 70 years of age difference, into a conversation that is a reflection of the social and culture lineage of City of Khansar in being a liberal city, open to the productive dialogues that can be established between the city’s past and present.Project gallerySee allShow lessOffice K2 / Baraban +Selected ProjectsSOHO Fuxing Lu / gmp ArchitektenSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeZAVarchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsHospitality ArchitectureHotelsTourismResidential ArchitectureHousesKhansarIranPublished on August 15, 2015Cite: “Pedari Guest House / ZAVarchitects” 14 Aug 2015.

John Swisher Honored as Life Sciences Champion Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 7, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News John Swisher Honored as Life Sciences Champion BioCrossroads Board of Directors named John Swisher, founder of JBS United, the 2016 winner of the August M. Watanabe Life Sciences Champion of the Year Award, a prestigious honor named in tribute to BioCrossroads’ late Chairman August Watanabe, at today’s Indiana Life Sciences Summit.BioCrossroads presents the Watanabe Award annually to an individual or organization that has made or enabled unique achievements in the development and promotion of Indiana’s life sciences research, educational or economic advancement.JBS United, originally focused on swine research and pork production economics, has developed the largest swine nutrition research farm system in the U.S.’s animal nutrition industry. Swisher’s keen sense for emerging market trends and investment in research led to the creation of a system that would solve complex nutrition and production challenges for large pork producers across Indiana, the United States and around the world. Since founding JBS United in 1956, Swisher has cultivated a culture of innovation that over the years has transformed the way commercial pork producers do business and also revolutionized the industry. Some of his achievements include engagement in international joint ventures, investment in leading agtech companies, and donating much needed protein for underserved Indiana communities.Over the last 20 years, JBS United has transitioned to a biotech-oriented nutrition company, which has developed FDA approved next-generation feed enzymes that have garnered high global market share for swine and poultry feeds. “Ag-focused technologies form a leading component of Indiana’s diverse life sciences industry, and over the past 60 years, John Swisher has become an international icon for what it means to be a reputable, effective and visionary agbiosciences entrepreneur,” said David L. Johnson, President and CEO of Central Indiana Corporate Partnership and BioCrossroads. “He truly understands the importance of investing in the best people, research, and technology to spur innovation.”Today, JBS United’s areas of expertise lie in research-based animal nutrition products, biotechnology applications in feed enzymes and microbials, livestock production, animal health products for swine reproductive efficiency and web-based data management systems for traceability applications in livestock production. Led by Swisher, more than 300 employees work together to develop some of the most extensive swine research facilities and capabilities in the world.“John Swisher is undeniably a life sciences champion,” said Beth Bechdol, President and CEO of AgriNovus Indiana, a state initiative focused on the agbiosciences sector. “His innovative approach to research and business has not only revolutionized agricultural production practices, but has more importantly led to technologies and solutions that help address our collective challenge of producing more food with fewer resources.” SHARE Previous articleEthanol Rhetoric Heating Up in Hoosier Senate RaceNext articleDicamba Herbicide Sprayed in 2016 Field Trials Hoosier Ag Today SHARE

Every effort must now be made to identify and punish this murder’s perpetrators and instigators. We hope that President Banda’s initiative will be a source of inspiration for other African countries in combatting impunity.”A 25-year-old student who wrote blogs calling for democracy and criticizing then President Bingu wa Mutharika, Chasowa was found dead on the Polytechnic School campus on 24 September 2011, after being the target of violent threats in the preceding weeks.The police’s insistence that his death was a suicide sparked an outcry in the local media and several journalists covering the case were briefly detained. Malawi fell 67 places in the 2011-2112 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index because of the previous president’s authoritarian excesses.

St. Johns County Sheriffs Office(INTERLACHEN, Fla.) — A Florida foster mother has been arrested on charges of organizing an adoption scheme and allegedly used her own son as a pawn in the fraud.Tina Scee, 45, allegedly posed as a worker for the Florida Department of Children and Families while a foster parent and created a guise that the disabled boy she later adopted in 2017 when he was 2 years old was available for adoption, according to a press release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.A couple from Ohio then visited Scee, a resident of Interlachen, a town about 50 miles southwest of St. Augustine, to meet the boy, authorities said. Scee then allegedly let the boy return to Ohio with the couple but told them that they would have to return to Florida several times before the adoption could be completed.Scee had the couple bring the child back to Florida multiple times in September 2017 and October 2017 to make it appear that she was was taking care of the child full time during site visits from DCF, authorities said. Meanwhile, she was receiving SNAP benefits and daycare assistance for the child while he was in Ohio, which totaled nearly $4,000.Scee was granted adoption after ordering that the boy return to Florida on Oct. 31, 2017 for the final adoption hearing, but the boy returned to Ohio following the hearing.The couple contacted the Florida Community Partnership for Children after they could not obtain the legal documents necessary to complete their adoption of the boy. The FDLE began investigating Scee in 2018 after receiving the complaints.Scee did not receive any money from the couple during the alleged scheme, authorities said. She is charged with organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, illegally placing a child for adoption and perjury.She turned herself in and was booked into the St. Johns County Jail in St. Augustine and was later released on $20,000 bond.ABC News could not immediately reach Scee or a representative for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for comment.The Florida Office of the State Attorney will prosecute the case.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

kali9.iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(PORTLAND) — The fugitive who allegedly gunned down a pro-Trump protester in Portland, Oregon, over the summer had his gun in his pocket when he was killed in a hail of more than 30 bullets by members of a federal task force, authorities said at a news conference on Tuesday.Investigators found a loaded .380-caliber handgun in Michael Reinoehl’s right front pants pocket and claimed the 48-year-old’s hand was on or near the weapon when he was killed, according to Thurston County Sheriff’s Lt. Ray Brady.The new information follows initial reports from investigators who said members of the federal fugitive task force involved in shooting Reinoehl gave conflicting statements. One said he opened fire when Reinoehl pointed a gun at task force members, while another alleged Reinoehl appeared to be reaching for a gun when he was shot, officials said.In a statement released shortly after Reinoehl was shot, the U.S. Marshals service said task force members opened fire on the fugitive who “produced a firearm, threatening the lives of law enforcement officers.”Reinoehl was killed in Lacey, Washington, on Sept. 3, just hours after an arrest warrant was issued for him on a second-degree murder charge in the fatal shooting of 39-year-old Aaron “Jay” Danielson on Aug. 29 in Portland. Authorities alleged that Danielson was shot to death during a street confrontation with Reinoehl, who told Vice News he was there providing security for Black Lives Matter protesters.Danielson was part of a group of self-described Trump supporters who came to Portland en masse and clashed with protesters demonstrating against police brutality. Friends said Danielson was also a supporter of the right-wing group “Patriot Prayer.”Brady said investigators are still waiting for lab results to determine whether the gun found on Reinoehl is the same one used to shoot Danielson.The latest details regarding Reinoehl’s death come after several witnesses claimed they did not hear task force members yell out any warnings to Reinoehl before they opened fire on him.”Officers shot multiple rapid-fire rounds at Reinoehl before issuing a brief ‘stop’ command, quickly followed by more rapid-fire shooting by additional officers,” witness Nathaniel Dingess, who lives near the apartment complex where Reinoehl was shot, said in a statement to The Oregonian newspaper.The New York Times reported in October that in interviews the newspaper conducted with 22 people near the scene of Reinoehl’s death, all but one claimed the task force members failed to identify themselves or give Reinoehl commands before they unleashed a barrage of gunfire.On Tuesday, Brady had disputed the statements from witnesses, saying four members of the federal task force gave Reinoehl “commands to stop and show his hands” prior to shooting him.Brady said Tuesday that Reinoehl was shot and wounded while he was still inside his car. He said Reinoehl got out of the vehicle and attempted to run but collapsed in the street. Reinoehl was pronounced dead at the scene.Brady said there is no evidence that Reinoehl fired his .380-caliber weapon at the task force members. He said one .380-caliber shell casing was discovered in the back seat of Reinoehl’s car, but that it was unclear how long the casing had been there or when it had been fired.President Donald Trump praised the task force for killing Reinoehl.“This guy was a violent criminal. And the U.S. Marshals killed him,” Trump said in a Sept. 13 interview with Fox News. “I will tell you something, that’s the way it has to be. There has to be retribution when you have crime like this.”Attorney General William Barr also released a statement following Reinoehl’s death, saying, “The tracking down of Reinoehl — a dangerous fugitive, admitted Antifa member, and suspected murderer — is a significant accomplishment in the ongoing effort to restore law and order to Portland and other cities.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
