We thought it might be interesting to hear more from some of this year’s young graduates.“What are your plans for the future?” we asked.At James Madison High in Clairemont Mesa and at Clairemont High, some students talked about becoming engineers, veterinarians, and teachers. One young man said he would join the military and eventually try to get a job as an EMT-firefighter. Another graduating senior said he was going to join the electricians’ union, in preparation for starting a business as an electrician.One young woman said she hoped to become an environmental lawyer, and then the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Many students said they would attend a local community college first and later transfer to San Diego State or another four-year university.Many students told us they were aware of the steeply rising costs of a college education. According to a 2014 national study, seven in ten college students had student loan debt, with an average of nearly $29,000 for each student borrower.We also asked the graduates who they credit for their passion and inspiration.Some said their friends and family helped them, while many gave the credit to their coaches and teachers. 6,000 students this week graduated from the 22 public high schools in the San Diego Unified School District.At the two high schools we visited, more than 90 percent said they planned to attend 2 to 4 year universities.To the class of 2018, we wish all of the young graduates throughout San Diego County much happiness and success!

BSO deputy suspended in connection to leak of FLL shooting video

first_img Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. FORT LAUDERDALE-HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) – A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy has been suspended with pay in connection to the investigation of the leaked surveillance video showing the shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport that left five people dead.Shortly after the deadly airport shooting, surveillance video from inside the airport was released. Now a BSO deputy is being investigated for allegedly being behind the release of the footage.TMZ was the first news outlet to share the footage of what shows the shooter firing upon unsuspecting passengers at Terminal 2 of FLL. TMZ is known for paying thousands of dollars to its sources when it comes to exclusive footage.Broward Mayor Barbara Sharief said that they identified the person by his reflection on the screen. “This individual really had no gauge whatsoever in terms of sensitivity and in trust,” Sharief said.The deputy has been identified as Michael Dingman, a deputy assigned to the airport district. Last month, Dingman was a featured source in a 7News report on illegal parking at FLL.Related: BSO cracking down on illegal parking at FLLBroward Sheriff Scott Israel released this statement regarding the leak: “Our investigation is moving forward. We are making progress and aggressively pursuing this case. Today, I suspended a deputy with pay in connection with this active investigation.”“I feel like he shouldn’t be paid at all,” Sharief said. “This is a heinous, heinous act. It is despicable, and it’s discouraging to have someone do this, and it is a crime.” Israel later spoke to 7News regarding the mayor’s comment and said, “Broward County Mayor is not the litmus test for what I do as sheriff.”The video is a crucial piece of evidence in the federal investigation of the shooting. Israel did not say whether the investigation had been compromised. “I’m not saying he did anything. He didn’t do anything. We’re not discussing any of the behavior exhibited by the deputy,” he said.However, the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association president, Jeff Bell, phoned in to remind 7News readers and viewers that Dingman is innocent until proven guilty. “If anybody in law enforcement was proven beyond a reasonable doubt to have had involvement in releasing information like this, then obviously, you would condemn an action like that.”The union said if Dingman is under investigation for the video, Sharief should be looked at for releasing information the day of the shooting.“If they’re looking at someone for releasing a video, I would also ask them to seriously look at Mayor Barbara Sharief for her conduct and her revealing of information that is specifically tied to the investigation,” Bell said.In the meantime, the suspect accused of the shooting, 26-year-old Esteban Santiago is in federal custody. Three of the victims from Friday’s shooting remain in the hospital.Among the actions listed on the suspension memo are disclosure or use of confidential information. last_img read more

Small boat sinks off Black Point Park Marina 5 rescued

first_imgSOUTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – Five people had to abandon ship off of Black Point Park Marina after their boat started to take on water.A family of five were rescued at sea after a fishing trip took a dangerous turn when their boat began taking on water, Friday afternoon.Seventeen-year-old Jesus Rodriguez explained the traumatic moments. “We were trying to get out, everyone was trying to get out,” he said. ​The boat took on a lot of water after a storm passed through, about 1.5 miles from Black Point Park Marina.“We just saw the rain coming hard, and we were trying to get out,” said Rodriguez, “and then a big wave came and flipped us over.”They put out a distress call and gave the coordinates of the boat as it started taking on water.Marine Patrol rescued the group, and they were checked out by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. Experts with Fast Response Marine Towing and Salvage said this is something they see far too often.“It happens to the best of us,” said Bryant Niebruegge with Fast Response Marine Towing. “It’s electrical, and there are thousands of connections that can be broken, and if your pump isn’t working, any little bit of water that comes in your boat stays there, and before you know it, you’re half submerged and don’t even realize it.”As the boat undergoes repairs, Rodriguez said he’s thankful for the rescue crews’ quick response.“We thanked them a lot because they helped us a lot,” he said.The boaters said they spent at least 20 minutes in open water before crews responded.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

In Unofficial Vote Venezuelans Overwhelmingly Reject Constitutional Rewrite

first_img Share Federico Parra/AFP/Getty ImagesActivists celebrate Sunday in Caracas after voting in an opposition-organized referendum on President Nicolas Maduro’s plan to rewrite the country’s constitution.Just two weeks before an election to decide the delegates who will rewrite Venezuela’s national constitution, opposition activists held a symbolic vote of their own on Sunday. In the nonbinding referendum, roughly 98 percent of voters rejected President Nicolas Maduro’s plan to replace the constitution.More than 7 million Venezuelans voted in the referendum, according to the local university administrators tasked with overseeing the vote. NPR’s Philip Reeves notes that number — which includes nearly 700,000 expatriots who voted overseas — constitutes about a third of Venezuela’s registered voters.“It’s a way to show how many people are actually against the government, and to give support to people that are actually doing the protests and have been arrested,” expat Andrea de Lima, who participated in South Florida, tells reporter Keyvan Antonio Heydari.Still, Maduro has vowed that Sunday’s referendum will do nothing to stall a July 30 election for delegates for a constituent assembly, which will be responsible for rewriting the country’s 18-year-old constitution. That rewrite would have the capacity to dissolve the National Assembly, an opposition-heavy body of lawmakers that has been a source of frustration for Maduro for years.It was an earlier attempt to dissolve this legislature — an attempt made by the Supreme Court, then quickly reversed in early April — that set off more than 100 days of unrest in Venezuela. The anti-government protests, and their clashes with government security forces, have seen nearly 100 people killed and more than 1,500 injured in the three and a half months that followed.The referendum Sunday was also marred by violence. A 61-year-old nurse was shot dead and three more were injured when men on motorbikes — described by the opposition as members of a “paramilitary” — opened fire on a polling place.Maduro has positioned his proposed constitutional rewrite as a solution to this continuing unrest, calling Sunday’s vote “a meaningless internal exercise.”But NPR’s Philip Reeves notes the unofficial referendum does send a message.“It clearly states that Maduro is as deeply unpopular as he has long been thought to be, and it shows, as the polls have suggested, that Venezuelans are overwhelmingly against the idea of establishing a constitutional assembly,” Philip reports.And NPR’s Greg Allen says that sentiment extends to Venezuelans living in the U.S. One expatriot, Mario Di Giovanni, tells Greg that while the vote isn’t official, the process is supported by Venezuela’s constitution.“So for us it’s binding,” Di Giovanni says, “and we are following the constitution. “Copyright 2017 NPR.

Salvadorans Fear Their Country Not Prepared For Returnees

first_img Share Being deported to an El Salvador he hadn’t seen in more than three decades was a trauma Hugo Castro recalls clearly.The 51-year-old said Monday that his country must begin preparing now to receive the nearly 200,000 Salvadorans who may have to return following the Trump administration’s decision to lift their temporary protected status next year.“The main problem for deportees is that they’re made invisible. They’re rejected, there’s no work. They don’t help us,” said Castro, who was deported from the U.S. in 2015.The U.S. announcement brought fears that a major source of income for this poor Central American nation will be cut off and that families could be separated. But there was also a hint of optimism that Salvadorans with many years of experience in the U.S. could bring expertise and investment to spur the economy.Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Salvadorans who have stayed in the U.S. with temporary protected status — only a fraction of the estimated 2 million Salvadorans living there — would have to leave by Sept. 9, 2019, unless Congress came up with a solution allowing them to stay.Twitter via @MaryknollFrsBrsThe temporary protected status program has been offered to citizens from a number of countries fleeing natural disasters or other instability. The affected Salvadorans received the status after earthquakes in 2001 killed more than 1,000 people. Thousands more who arrived in the United States in recent years fleeing gang violence were not eligible.Castro went to the United States as a teenager to study at a college in Atlanta. During his junior year his family back home lost nearly everything when the bank seized their coffee operation. Dropping out, he worked at a country club and a book store and became manager of a Mexican restaurant. Then a run-in with police led to more than two years in immigration detention as he unsuccessfully fought deportation after living in the U.S. for three decades.His first three months back in El Salvador were the worst, he said. He suffered from depression and didn’t want to leave his mother’s home. People told him a 49-year-old man should not depend on his mother to support him, so he started looking for work.“I went everywhere, to restaurants. I told them I had a lot of experience and that I spoke English, but they rejected me,” he said.Eight months after arriving, Castro finally found work at the Salvadoran Immigrant Institute. The non-profit group recognized the value of Castro’s bilingualism and the experience he had gained through the deportation process and it put him to work helping other deportees reintegrate into society.Castro said programs like his are very limited and more needs to be done for returnees.“The government has to get ready, partner with businesses, with all of society, the nonprofits and create assistance programs,” he said.As an example, he noted that in 2016, the country received 52,000 deportees from the United States and Mexico. Meanwhile, a government program to give small cash grants to allow deportees to open their own businesses has only graduated 140 people, he said.The biggest worry among many Salvadorans is that their nation of 6.2 million people will see a big drop in the amount of cash sent home by countrymen working in the United States. Salvadorans transferred more than $4.5 billion from the U.S. in 2016, accounting for 17 percent of El Salvador’s economy, according to government figures.Luis Membreno, an economic analyst in El Salvador, said that fear may be overblown. He said Salvadorans who have protected status in the U.S. tend to be more long-standing migrants who have their families there and send less money home. Many more Salvadorans are not in the program, with growing numbers entering the U.S. illegally over the past decade fleeing violence and poverty.“I don’t think that family remittances are going to fall in the short term,” Membreno said.He also thinks some Salvadoran families in the U.S. could start sending more money back — something that started when Donald Trump was elected president — so remittance figures could rise.In addition, he said, many of those eventually returning could be skilled and have money to invest. “All of this could generate a certain dynamism in the economy,” he said.Cesar Rios, director of the nonprofit group where Castro works, is less optimistic. “Our country is not prepared to receive thousands of Salvadorans,” he said.Deportees are often targeted by gangs, because they believe they have money. Police also target them, because of the stigma that they are criminals.“There’s no work,” Rios said. “Between 200 and 300 Salvadorans continue leaving every day for the United States.”Ernesto Godoy, standing outside a Western Union money transfer office in San Salvador, said he receives money from relatives with protected status in the United States. He worried the decision could lead to bigger problems in El Salvador.“It’s going to affect us, not only me, but on a national level, because here in El Salvador we make ends meet with remittances from the United States,” Godoy said.last_img read more

Puja committees told to clean up pandal premises to control dengue

first_imgKolkata: Kolkata Municipal Corporation’s Health department has directed all Puja committees to take up cleaning of its pandal premises at the earliest to prevent the outbreak of vector-borne diseases. The health officials of the Ward level have been instructed to keep a vigil on such places on a regular basis to ensure that they do not emerge as a breeding ground for vector-borne diseases.”The things used for making pandals may act as small pockets of stagnant water. The weather office has predicted rain early next week. Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes that cause dengue breed in clear water. So we want to ensure that water does not accumulate in the premises of such pandals and accordingly, Puja committees have been instructed to clear such spaces at their earliest,” a senior official of KMC’s Health department said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeIt may be mentioned that the KMC started awareness campaigns against dengue from the beginning of the year as a result of which the vector-borne disease has been very much under control in its areas. “Our novel initiative of involving Puja committees in dengue drives and awarding those conducting awareness activities in the best possible way has yielded excellent results. We will start this venture from August next year so that more Puja committees come forward,” said Atin Ghosh, Member Mayor in Council (Health). The Swastha Bandhab Sharad Samman for awarding Puja committees for dengue drive witnessed 1,605 applications.last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Recent Videos View all 606 items Nuclear Imaging | April 28, 2017 VIDEO: Trends in Nuclear Cardiology Imaging David Wolinsky, M.D., director of nuclear cardiology at Cleveland Clinic Florida and past-president of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), discusses advancements in nuclear imaging and some of the issues facing the subspecialty.

Turtles add value to Cyprus as a whole updated video

first_imgThe nesting of endangered sea turtles on the protected beaches of Argaka should not be seen as against the interests of the local community, Disy president Averof Neophytou said on Friday.Neophytou, who is himself from Argaka, was speaking after an incident on Thursday when Argaka mayor Spyros Pelopidas stormed down to the protected beach beneath the Santa Barbara restaurant and picked a fight with local and international sea turtle protection experts taking part in an internationally-renowned sea turtle protection educational programme.The experts, among whom was also a representative of the council of Europe, were at the beach to place protective cages above sea turtle nests.Pelopidas, along with several Argaka residents, verbally attacked the experts on the basis that there were fewer sea turtles than the group was accommodating for, and claimed that more cages were being placed so that they could collect higher sums from the fisheries department.Speaking on Astra radio on Friday, head of the team of experts Myroulla Hadjichristoforou staunchly denied these claims, and said that the programme has been in operation in the area for 30 years and has received awards for its activities.Pelopidas reportedly even stood on top of a sea turtle nest and prohibited the placement of a cage, claiming that there were no turtle eggs, pushing the experts to dig up the nest to see if he was right.At the specific beach, part of the Polis-Yialia special area of conservation protected by the European Natura 2000 legislation due its role as an important breeding site in the Mediterranean for the endangered Loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) and Green turtles (Chelonia mydas), beach beds and umbrellas had previously been placed without the necessary permission of the central beach committee.Pelopidas also justified his behaviour by claiming that the group did not have permission from local authorities to be on the beach, even though the programme is contractually covered by the department of fisheries.According to daily Phileleftheros, the angered Argaka residents were emboldened by the media coverage they received in March after a strip of around 700 metres of acacia trees of the neighbouring Mavralis state forest which lined the protected sea turtle spawning beaches of Limni and Argaka were bulldozed and burned on site.Police were called to the scene in Argaka to de-escalate the situation. The experts were asked to leave and told they would be informed of any further action.Police spokesman Christos Andreou said the force would investigate the “serious issue” between those on the sea turtle protection educational programme who “had all necessary licences to be in the area,” and the Argaka mayor and residents.Hadjichristoforou said on Friday that the group will continue its sea turtle protection programme on the Argaka beach.On Friday, Neophytou said that “yesterday’s events… do not honour the area or Cyprus.“The breeding of Caretta caretta and Chelonia mydas sea turtles is a blessing and a great advantage… which provides additional value to the Paphos area and Cyprus as a whole.”Neophytou highlighted that “any developments in the area must abide by the legislation and regulations in place and must be completely respectful of the environment.”Sea turtles and their eggs have been under Cyprus legislation since 1971, as along with Turkey the island is the almost exclusive nesting place for the Green turtle, while the Caretta caretta also breeds in small numbers in other countries in the region.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndo Tales from the Coffeeshop: Lies, lies and holy revelationsUndoA grotesque choice of prime minister for Britain?UndoNicosia will use ‘all diplomatic means at its disposal’ to counter Turkish actionsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
