Ebola Outbreak to Reduce Arrest, Detention

first_imgWith the rapid spread of the Ebola epidemic, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia has appealed to magistrates (judges)   throughout the country to be flexible under the law in sending people to jail.Chief Justice Francis Korkpor was quick to point out that he was not ordering judges to perform their duties outside the scope of the law, but to use what he considered “discretionary powers” in line with section 10.12 and 13.5 of the Criminal Procedure Law.The Chief Justice made the appeal yesterday when he met with magistrates and the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) at his Temple of Justice office.According to him, the request for that power must be done on a case by case basis,  considering the fact and circumstance surrounding the matter. “This is to ensure that the judiciary plays one of the essential roles in containing the deadly Ebola disease in the country,” the Chief Justice said in support of his appealed.Frowning on magistrates that are involved in abandoning their respective courts, the Judiciary head stressed, “Any magistrate that does not take time into consideration and absent themselves from their responsibilities would be considered as non-essential staff.”He warned that severe administrative measures would be instituted against those magistrates involved  into such practice.”Updating the magistrates and the MOJ about recent decision regarding jury’s sequestration, the Chief Justice explained that “the judiciary has held deliberations with the National Bar Association (NBA) and the issue of the reduction of the number of jurors and their sequestration was addressed based on the out-break of the Ebola virus.”He continued, “During the discussion we agreed to reduce the number of jurors from 15 to nine, with three alternatives out of that same number.” He praised what he considered as the “cordial working relationship between  the Ministry and the Bar regarding efforts in the fight against the disease.For their part, the magistrates promised that they would exercise maximum judicial power as enshrined in the law, stating “We will use the discretionary powers, especially when it comes to arrest, summons and detention of defendants,  taking into consideration the Ebola crisis.” In separate remarks, Montserrado County Attorney, Cllr. Daku Mulbah and Acting Solicitor General,  Cllr. Augustine Fayiah,  assured the Chief Justice that they would continue to collaborate with the judiciary in the fight against the Ebola virus.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Biker killed in crash on 210

first_imgAZUSA – A fatal crash involving a motorcycle and a stalled vehicle on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway tied up traffic for hours Tuesday as investigators pieced together the incident just west of the Citrus Avenue offramp. William McKernan, 37, of Costa Mesa died instantly when his red 2001 Yamaha motorcycle struck an abandoned Honda in the car-pool lane at 5:24 a.m., CHP spokesman Officer Edmund Zorilla said. Police continued to search for the driver of the Honda, who fled the scene after crashing into the car-pool lane center divider just minutes before the crash. “The driver of the Honda is going to have major head injuries,” Zorilla said. “So we’re doing our follow up.” Officials pronounced McKernan, who was pinned between his motorcycle and the stalled car, dead at the scene. His body was taken to the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner for an autopsy. Zorilla said he did not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in McKernan’s death. Zorilla confirmed McKernan was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The driver of the Honda could face misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run, Zorilla said. More serious charges could result when the follow-up investigation is forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The CHP issued a SigAlert following the incident. Traffic on the 210 remained tied up in both directions for several hours. Police believe McKernan was heading home after leaving City of Hope in Duarte. A visitor’s badge for the hospital, issued Monday, remained pinned to his shirt, Zorilla said. frank.girardot@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717last_img read more

Government shoots down AR-15 petition

first_imgThe local MP also believes the outcome of the US Presidential Election this fall could have an impact on the issue going forward. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – It carried more than 25,000 signatures, but the Trudeau government has shot down the AR-15 e-petition launched by Marc Bennett of Corner Brook, Newfoundland, and sponsored by Prince George/Peace River/Northern Rockies MP, Bob Zimmer.This is the petition tabled in the Commons this summer calling on the government to reclassify the rifle as an unrestricted firearm.The petitioners wrote, “This rifle is the most versatile hunting rifle in the world”…adding…“The calibre can easily be changed to meet lawful provincial hunting requirements from small game to big game animals, without the need to purchase multiple gaming rifles .”- Advertisement -However, the Liberal government was having no part of their arguments with Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale saying he has no intention of invoking a section of Canada’s criminal code to reclassify the firearm as unrestricted.While not surprised Mr. Zimmer did find the government response troubling, especially Mr. Goodale’s commitment to put the decision making authority about weapons classification back into the hands of RCMP.However, Canada’s restricted gun ownership increased nine and half percent last year and Mr. Zimmer says the firearms debate is far from over.Advertisementlast_img read more

PRIEST GIVEN 27 PER CENT SHARE OF HOME OF EX-LOVER

first_imgFr RosbothamA GAY Catholic priest has today been awarded 27 per cent of a home he once shared with his lover, former Franciscan friar Hugo Crawford.Rose Cottage, in Letterbarrow, is to be now divided, with Mr Crawford getting a 73 per cent share of any future sale. Judge Keenan Johnson told Donegal Town Circuit Court today that he had calculated ownership of the property based on the amount of money he believed each party had contributed to the property.He found Father Rosbotham, a curate in Ballina, Co Mayo, had made a contribution of €22,500 to the cottage whilst Mr Crawford’s contribution amounted to just over €59,000.The court heard yesterday how Fr Rosbotham and Mr Crawford met in the 1980s when they were both Franciscan brothers.Mr Crawford quit the order and paid IR£25k for the house in 1994.In 2000 and 2002 he had applied to add Fr Rosbotham’s name to the title deeds as by that stage the priest had also left the Franciscans – which has a vow of poverty and a ban on ownership of property – and had become a curate in Ballina.Judge Johnson said before delivering his judgement: “They are both clear very decent men who still have considerable regard for each other. They have dedicated their lives to helping others, Fr Rosbotham as a priest and Mr Crawford as a carer.“I think it is unfortunate that this matter had to be aired in court and it certainly strikes me as a case that was tailor-made for mediation. Had the parties agreed to mediation, the matter could have been dealt with in private, with each of the parties retaining ownership of the ultimate resolution.”PRIEST GIVEN 27 PER CENT SHARE OF HOME OF EX-LOVER was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal Town Circuit Courtfather rosbothamgayhouseHugo CrawfordPriestlast_img read more

Donegal Senator calls on Irish government restore co-funding of the A5

first_imgDonegal Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has called on the Irish Government to “step up to the plate” on the funding of the A5 road upgrade, vital to economic growth in Donegal and the North West.He was speaking as the first stage of the project from Newbuildings to Strabane looks set to get underway in January.Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “That we have got to this stage is testament to the unrelenting determination of the late Martin McGuinness. “In 2011, when the then Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar removed Irish Government co- funding for the project, Martin stood up to them and demanded that they honour the promises made in the 2006 St Andrews Agreement.“Myself and Pearse Doherty were part of the Sinn Féin delegation to those negotiations that led to that commitment and promise. And following Martin’s direct challenge to the then Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, the Irish Government re-committed partial funding of €50 million euro over a two year period.“Now, over six years later, the Irish Government has still not restored that co-funding commitment of £400 million sterling”.He concluded: “So while the vital A5 project commencing construction in January is good news for Donegal, unless the Irish Government finally steps up to the plate, the full project and the immense potential for our entire region can not be realised.” Donegal Senator calls on Irish government restore co-funding of the A5 was last modified: November 28th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:a5 roadSenator Padraig Mac LochlainnSinn Feinlast_img read more

Darwinists Cannot Deny “Disturbing” Implications

first_imgA common attitude among scientists is that they are not responsible for what people do with their discoveries.  Facts are facts, after all, and nuclear energy can be used to power a city as well as destroy it.  Is this a truism or a half-truth?  Are there cases where a scientist is responsible for what he or she proclaims as a fact about the world?    In its continuing celebration of Darwin, Science magazine printed an article about “Darwin’s Originality” by Peter J. Bowler.1  This philosopher from Queen’s University of Belfast described how Darwin’s theory of evolution had “disturbing” ramifications.  “In this essay,” he began, “I argue that Darwin was truly original in his thinking, and I support this claim by addressing the related issue of defining just why the theory was so disturbing to his contemporaries.”  He used the word disturbing five more times.    Bowler elaborated on what was most disturbing.  It’s not that Darwin invented or discovered evolution – evolutionary thinking was already in the air in Victorian Britain.  “Most thinkers—including Jean-Baptiste Lamarck and [Robert] Chambers—took it for granted that the development of life on earth represents the unfolding of a coherent plan aimed at a predetermined goal,” he said.  Darwin was different.  Darwin attributed all the “unfolding” (which is what evolution means) to result from the environment.  His critics understood what this implied:Darwin’s world view was profoundly different because he argued that the adaptation of populations to their local environment was the sole cause of transmutation.  Many people found it hard to see natural selection as the agent of either divine benevolence or of a rationally structured cosmic teleology.  Selection adapted species to an ever-changing environment, and it did so by killing off useless variations in a ruthless “struggle for existence.”  This did not seem the kind of process that would be instituted by a benevolent God, especially because its essentially “selfish” nature meant that a parasitic way of life was a perfectly natural adaptive response in some circumstances.    More seriously for the idea of cosmic teleology, Darwin’s supposition that the production of the individual variants in a population was essentially undirected ruled out any possibility that evolution could be shaped by a predetermined developmental trend.  There was no obvious goal toward which it was aimed, and it did not produce an orderly pattern of relations between species.  The accusation that the theory depended on “random” variation indicated the concerns of his opponents on this score.  As Darwin himself made clear, variation was certainly caused by something (later identified as genetic mutations), but it was not aimed in any one direction and, thus, left adaptive evolution essentially open-ended.Bowler delved into the history behind this idea, the responses of Darwin’s contemporaries, the battle over natural theology, the Victorian mindset, motivations and influences in Darwin’s life, the 19th-century debates on teleology vs the undirected character of natural selection, and the reluctance with which Darwinism became accepted in the scientific community.  The reader might be tempted to ask whether the discussion is merely academic.  If, after all, this is the way the world works, all Darwin was doing was lifting a corner of the veil.  This is reality.  Mankind will just to have to learn to deal with it.    In his final section, “The Struggle for Existence,” Bowler is not so keen to let Darwin and the modern Darwinists off the hook with a “Get out of jail free” card just for being scientists.  In the first place, the Malthusian idea of struggle for existence, which was pervasive in Victorian England, could have been applied in different ways.  Bowler argues that Spencer applied it to individual effort to succeed.  “Much of what later became known as ‘social Darwinism’ was, in fact, Spencerian social Lamarckism expressed in the terminology of struggle popularized by Darwin,” he claimed.  What Darwin did, though, was make this struggle metaphor something ruthless and impersonal:This point is important in the context of the charge raised by modern opponents of Darwinism that the theory is responsible for the appearance of a whole range of unpleasant social policies based on struggle.  Darwin exploited the idea of the struggle for existence in a way that was unique until paralleled by Wallace nearly 20 years later.  Their theory certainly fed into the movements that led toward various kinds of social Darwinism, but it was not the only vehicle for that transition in the late 19th century.  It did, however, highlight the harsher aspects of the consequences of struggle.  The potential implications were drawn out even more clearly when Galton argued that it would be necessary to apply artificial selection to the human race in order to prevent “unfit” individuals from reproducing and undermining the biological health of the population.  This was the eugenics program, and in its most extreme manifestation at the hands of the Nazis, it led not just to the sterilization but also to the actual elimination of those unfortunates deemed unfit by the state.  Did Darwin’s emphasis on the natural elimination of maladaptive variants help to create a climate of opinion in which such atrocities became possible?    It has to be admitted that, by making death itself a creative force in nature, Darwin introduced a new and profoundly disturbing insight into the world, an insight that seems to have resonated with the thinking of many who did not understand or accept the details of his theory.Darwin himself, of course, could not have known what was coming.  Lest anyone misunderstand, Bowler states clearly that “Darwinism was not ‘responsible’ for social Darwinism or eugenics in any simple way.”  In fact, some eugenicists and social Darwinists denied the mechanism of natural selection.  The Nazis did not want to believe that Aryans had evolved from apes.  There were a variety of views about evolution and the struggle for existence.  Nevertheless, Bowler is not ready to let Darwin off the hook so easily:But by proposing that evolution worked primarily through the elimination of useless variants, Darwin created an image that could all too easily be exploited by those who wanted the human race to conform to their own pre-existing ideals.  In the same way, his popularization of the struggle metaphor focused attention onto the individualistic aspects of Spencer’s philosophy.This brings us back to the original question: can scientists distance themselves from their findings?  Keep in mind that Darwinism goes beyond a discovery of facts about the living world.  The Origin did not really catalog any new facts of biology that were not already known.  What he did was put them together into “one long argument” that presented an entire history of life, a world view, that generated all the variety of living organisms via selfishness and struggle.  When any scientist proposes to change the way we think about the world, Bowler argues that he or she must be willing to take responsibility for the consequences.  Let’s listen to his closing paragraph, where he generalizes the Darwin saga to all of science.Modern science recognizes the importance of Darwin’s key insights when used as a way of explaining countless otherwise mysterious aspects of the natural world.  But some of those insights came from sources with profoundly disturbing implications, and many historians now recognize that the theory, in turn, played into the way those implications were developed by later generations.  This is not a simple matter of science being “misused” by social commentators, because Darwin’s theorizing would almost certainly have been different had he not drawn inspiration from social, as well as scientific, influences.  We may well feel uncomfortable with those aspects of his theory today, especially in light of their subsequent applications to human affairs.  But if we accept science’s power to upset the traditional foundations of how we think about the world, we should also accept its potential to interact with moral values.Let’s apply what Bowler just said to another current issue.  Robert Roy Britt wrote on January 6 in Live Science that man may be causing “Reverse evolution” by culling the biggest trophy animals out of populations.  Forward and reverse, however, only makes sense within a concept of progress.  “Survival of the smallest is not exactly what Darwin had in mind, but in some animals species, humans may be forcing a smaller-is-better scenario, and the ultimate outcome may be species demise.”  It’s a macho thing to go for the big trophy.  Britt seemed to dodge the question though, whether in evolutionary terms this is good or bad, though he spoke of elephant poaching as a “dastardly” form of selection.  His article relates to a paper in PNAS that shows “Human predators outpace other agents of trait change in the wild.”2  The authors warned that human trophy hunting eliminates the big animals, and “might imperil populations, industries, and ecosystems.”  National Geographic news chimed in, asking if hunters are speeding up the evolution of trophy prey.  It seems they can’t decide if evolution is going in forward or reverse.  Either way, there seemed to be an implicit call to do something moral about it.  One natural history museum curator said that sustainable management “requires that people stop preferentially removing the larger and most [fertile] animals from populations, and focus more on a strategy that preserves the historic size-structure of the species.”  He left it unexplained why a theory of undirected change over time in a struggle for existence and the pursuit of fitness would require one species to care about another species on which it does not depend; see the 11/21/2008 entry.1.  Peter J. Bowler, “Darwin’s Originality,” Science, 9 January 2009: Vol. 323. no. 5911, pp. 223-226, DOI: 10.1126/science.1160332.2.  Darimont et al, “Human predators outpace other agents of trait change in the wild,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, Published online before print January 12, 2009, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0809235106.First, regarding the hunting article, care for the ecology makes perfect sense to Christians, who believe humans are God’s stewards to care for the animals and plants, because they display God’s creativity and sovereignty.  It makes no sense in a Darwinian world view.  Trophy hunting just shows that humans are more fit.  Lots of animals get smaller through evolution.  So what?  If you believe in an undirected process, with no morals and values, who cares if the big bucks are on the decline?  Must be consistent.  No fair borrowing Christian ideals.  Remember what Fern Wickson told Nature? (11/09/2008) “If nature is somewhere that humans are not, we lose sight of the fact that we are just another species intimately intertwined in the complex web of biological systems on this planet.  However, if we place ourselves within a definition of nature, the definition then becomes essentially meaningless by extending to everything on Earth.”    Now, regarding Bowler’s essay, wow.  Did you get that?  The Darwin Party officials usually turn beet red when anyone tries to link their beliefs to the Holocaust.  They became unglued when Expelled drew a connection.  Now, this philosopher, writing in Science, said the same thing.  Understand that Richard Weikart and the other commentators in the film did not make any kind of simplistic linkage.  They did not blame Darwin for the Holocaust, or say that Hitler’s primary motivation came from Darwin’s book, or any such thing.  They said that Darwin’s world view in which nature ruthlessly destroys the “unfit” in an unending struggle for existence was used by later political leaders to justify their atrocities as a rational outworking of the laws of nature.  That’s what Bowler is admitting here.  Come on, Eugenie and Ken and Barbara and all you other Darwin attack dogs: unleash your venom on this guy, too.  He doesn’t understand what a sweet, gentle, loving theory Darwinism is.    Notice that Bowler called Darwinism a world view, not a scientific theory.  He spoke of Darwin’s supposition that the world operated in an undirected manner.  He depicted Darwin applying a metaphor of struggle in a particular way.  These are instances of the use of scientific rhetoric, not empiricism.  The rhetorical character of Darwin’s presentation of natural selection in The Origin has been described in an excellent interview by John Angus Campbell, PhD in Rhetoric, one of the founders of a post-Kuhnian discipline called the Rhetoric of Science.  The recorded interview is available from Access Research Network and is well worth watching and thinking about.  It will give you a whole new understanding of the Darwinian revolution.    The slogan ideas have consequences is so commonplace, we won’t harp on it.  Instead, we’ll offer the hard core Darwinists a proposition.  We know you are never going to change your world view, but like it or not, you know that Darwinism was used by some of the worst despots in the 20th century to wipe out millions of people.  We know you don’t want that to happen again.  To save the world from the next Pol Pot, Mao or Stalin, how about joining with us in promoting Christianity as an antidote to the selfish tendencies of humans?  You don’t have to believe it, but certainly you can see in retrospect that mankind needs such a world view to provide a moral foundation for the life, liberty and happiness that you enjoy so much.  After all, even Richard Dawkins admitted he would rather live in a Christian society than a Darwinian one.  You guys are obligated to think Christianity provides fitness, because you believe religion evolved (05/27/2008, 10/26/2008).  So here’s our proposition: join a Christian missions team and help spread the gospel.  Save the world from Darwinism!(Visited 64 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
