Sierra said yesterday she may have taken off for Nevada, possibly Las Vegas. DeJongh is believed to be driving a black Lincoln Aviator, license plate 5JAT330. The parents of the children are divorced and there appears to be a custody battle between the two, sheriff’s officials said. Authorities do not believe that the children are in danger, ABC7 reported yesterday. Miller, 59, represents the 42nd Congressional District, which includes Diamond Bar, Brea, Chino and Chino Hills. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the three boys was asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Walnut Station at (909) 595- 2264. DIAMOND BAR – Authorities kept up their search today for three missing boys from Diamond Bar — the grandchildren of Rep. Gary Miller, R- Diamond Bar — who were allegedly kidnapped by their mother. “There are no new updates to the kidnapping investigation and the three children are still missing,” said Deputy Aura Sierra of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau. Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Major Crimes Bureau responded to the 2200 block of Cello Drive at 10:15 p.m. Monday to investigate the circumstances surrounding the possible abduction of the three boys, Sierra said. The children — one is 8, the others are 6 — were reported missing about 3:35 p.m. yesterday, Sierra said. The two six-year-olds are twins. last_img read more

Glendale Career College, which mainly trains students to work for physicians and hospitals, is at 1015 Grandview Ave. It serves more than 300 students, according to numbers released last year. Last month, Dorn Platz came to the Redevelopment Agency again with a plan to put the college at 240 N. Brand., but incorporate it into a larger project. Everything in the half-block north of the Alex Theatre would be rebuilt, creating a mix of condos and shops. The college would use parking spaces at the city’s Orange Street Garage only for three years, during construction of an underground parking lot. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

GLENDALE – A career college trying to move downtown faces an uphill battle to persuade city officials that putting cash-starved students there would be great for retail shops. Pasadena-based real estate company Dorn Platz is trying to put Glendale Career College at 240 N. Brand Blvd., even though the Redevelopment Agency last year rejected the two companies’ request to let students park in a city lot. Freeing up valuable parking for students with limited cash to burn in local shops was not a good idea for downtown businesses, officials said. But since then, Dorn Platz has come back with a new project plan and a pitch that students are good for downtown. “Look at any major cities. They all have schools downtown,” said Brad Barnes, vice president at Dorn Platz. “The school brings a very vibrant, young, great demographic to the downtown.” last_img read more

OPPOSITION GROWS TO NEW CHARGES – ANOTHER MEETING SET TO GO AHEAD

first_imgIn a growing opposition against the planned introduction of Septic Tank, Water and Household charges by the government, yet another public meeting to discuss the charges and campaign against them has been announced.The latest one will be held in Downings on November 28th.The community based meeting which is part of the ‘We Won’t Pay’ campaign will be held in a similar vain to that of a series of meetings which have already been held across the county and will feature guest speakers and an open debate from all attending. To date meetings have been held in various areas including Newtowncunningham, Letterkenny and Gaoth Dobhair where over 200 people attended and most recently in Donegal Town where over 350 people gathered to hear guest speakers which included two TDs voice their opposition and concerns of the government’s plans.All of the meetings so far have been community led having no party political allegiance with groups forming under the ‘We Won’t Pay’ banner in many towns across County Donegal.The meeting planned for Downings has been organised by local man Charlie Gallagher who says that it is important that communities pull together on the matter.“This issue of the government planning to tax septic tanks, our water and impose household charges affects everyone in this county and the best way we can resist their plans is by pulling together as a community and voicing our opposition from the grassroots up” Mr Gallagher said. The meeting which will be held in the Tramore Inn, Downings on Monday 28th November will feature guest speakers Thomas Pringle TD and community activist Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig.Speaking about the planned charges and his reasons for holding the meeting Mr Gallagher said “These charges are grossly unfair and are coming at a time of massive economic hardships felt by many families across Donegal.“We also have an unprecedented number of people unemployed who are already feeling the squeeze and heaping more taxes and charges on the ordinary people I feel is just unacceptable, and this is why I have organised this meeting in my area. It is obvious that these charges are no more than a method to gather funds to pay back the IMF bailout which was used to bail out reckless bankers and I don’t believe that the people should have to foot the bill for the mistakes of a small minority.“It is important that we all pull together on this matter and if a campaign is community led and by the people I think there is a good chance of fighting it successfully.”* The public meeting in the Tramore Inn will begin at 8pm on November 28th and all are welcome to attend.

Hoffman, Stander claim Argus Cycle Tour wins

first_img10 March 2014 Nolan Hoffman claimed his first win in the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour and Cherise Stander her third victory in the women’s race in Cape Town on Sunday. The Cycle Tour, which starts and finishes in Cape Town and takes place around the picturesque Cape Peninsula, is the largest individually timed cycle race in the world.Bunch sprint Team Abantu’s Hoffman, who had previously finished on the podium on three different occasions, finally made it to the top step after winning in a bunch sprint in two hours, 39 minutes and 31 seconds. He was followed over the finishing line by Eritrea’s Meron Teshome Hagos, riding for the MTB Qhubeka Feeder Team, and HB Kruger of Team Bonitas. Hoffman used his track speed to claim the line honours after excellent work from his team put him in position to top the finishing sprint. Some disorganisation among the other teams also helped.‘Perfect for me’ “There was sort of chaos among the MTN boys and that fell into my hands because they had the numbers,” Hoffman said afterwards. “They pretty much controlled it, which was perfect for me. I can hold myself in a sprint and I can see which wheels to follow. “Knowing there weren’t any strong guys, I had the confidence to sprint against these guys, but it wasn’t easy.”Women’s race While the men’s race finished in a sprint, Stander, riding for team RECM, secured a much more convincing women’s victory after taking an early lead that she never relinquished. The closest her title challenge came to being undermined was right at the finishing line when two cyclists in the group she was riding in went down in a hard crash. “I am extremely happy,” she said in a post-race interview. “Today, personally for me, it was quite difficult. Last year [after the death of my husband Burry], everything was such a blur and I lost my gran last year as well, and…she was quite the anchor in my cycling career. She was with me [in it] since I was nine years old and she died on the 15th of August. “Just over Suikerbossie, I kept thinking about her and Burry and how much I wanted this win for both of them and I was extremely happy [to win]. They were the motivation that got me over the line.”Winning time Stander’s winning time was two hours and 51 minutes, with seven-time winner Anriette Schoeman claiming second place, 31 seconds behind her. Dee Joubert ended third, just over a-minute-and-a-half further back.RESULTS MEN Nolan Hoffman (RSA) 2:39:31Meron Teshome Hagos (Eri) same timeHB Kruger (RSA) stNicholas Dougall (RSA) stFran Rabon (Cze) stJayde Julius (RSA) stShaun-Nick Bester (RSA) stKarl Platt (Ger) stDarren Lill (RSA) stCosta Seibeb (NAM) st Womencenter_img Cherise Stander (RSA) 2:51:00Anriette Schoeman (RSA) 2:51:31Dee Joubert (RSA) 2:53:03last_img read more

Riaad Moosa: Muslims are not extremists

first_imgSouth African comedian, Riaad Moosa, is at the forefront of a campaign that aims to change the negative perceptions of Muslims. Called #MuslimNotExtremist, it aims to show that Muslims are normal people leading lives that are anything but militant. Riaad Moosa is one of the country’s Muslims who put on twitter what their role in society is and this was to show they are anything but extremist. (Image: Supplied) • South African Muslim clerics condemn IS • Africa: fast facts • Nelson Mandela in film • South Africa’s born-frees talk about life • Nelson Mandela in film Melissa Javan“My super power is: I advocate tolerance [and] peace every single day.” This is one of many tweets posted on Monday, 13 April 2015, under the hashtag #MuslimNotExtremist.Backed by South African comedian, Riaad Moosa, the campaign addresses the negative perceptions of Muslims by getting Muslim- and non-Muslim users to describe their role in society and the work that they do.Earlier this month, 148 students at Garissa University College in Kenya were killed by al-Shabaab militants. Muslims from all over South Africa have spoken against the terrorists and called their act a violation of Islam.Moosa says the campaign allows Muslims to show they are normal people leading lives that are anything but extremist.He further explained how the campaign works:OK Guys.Myself& the guys here at @MuslinkSA are hoping 2 get 2 hashtags going #MuslimNotExtremist & #SomeOfMyBestFriendsAreMuslim #Muslink— RiaadMoosa(@RiaadMoosa) April 13, 2015 I’m a Doctor, Comedian, Actor, Father and Husband #MuslimNotExtremist #Muslink pic.twitter.com/KVskB33gyR— RiaadMoosa(@RiaadMoosa) April 13, 2015 Creators of an upcoming television dialogue series called Muslink started the campaign.Jehad Kasu, an entrepreneur within the media industry, is the executive producer of Muslink. He says they wanted to create a simple interactive show on what Islam is really about. “Looking at the uptake of the campaign, this is an issue that many Muslims and non-Muslims want to discuss, but never had the platform or opportunity to do so. Now they do.”Kasu says the series aims to show viewers that Muslims also fulfil important roles in society that “they would never have earned if they were deemed to be ‘extremist’ by virtue of their religious beliefs”.Creating better perceptionsKasu says Muslink started as a passion project. “I observed that platforms existed for the recognition of captains of industry and politicians. And when that captain of industry or politician acts questionably, and is a Muslim, the media will emphasise that a Muslim is responsible for an undesired act of mischief or unlawfulness.“But if that same Muslim politician or captain of industry made a world first discovery, pioneered new research or technological breakthrough – the media will only credit him or her within their profession and not as a Muslim.”Kasu says this saddens him. “I know plenty of Muslim personalities that are pioneers in their fields of expertise, but don’t receive a fraction of the recognition they deserve.“So we developed Muslink – a platform celebrating Muslim excellence and providing a counter-narrative to mainstream media’s messaging about the Muslim community and demonstrating the side of Islam that too often doesn’t make headline news.”Great support and feedbackKasu says they have received an overwhelming response on Twitter. More tweets streamed in on Tuesday and Wednesday. “We would like to thank all respondents for their comments and assisting us to breakdown an untrue and unfortunate stereotype about the Muslim community,” said Kasu.This is what people tweeted since Monday:I’m a servant of the Creator, a family man, an artist, songwriter, producer & broadcaster! #MuslimNotExtremist— EBI The Inglisman(@Inglisman) April 13, 2015 I like ice-cream and yoga – in that order. #MuslimNotExtremist (awesome campaign by cool South Africans!) pic.twitter.com/rxerfi3TFc— Bilal | ?????

Gadgets Unbind from Portals

first_imgThis new generation of Widgets in effect unbinds portlets from Portal containers.  The framework has been repositioned from existing as a container application housed in a browser to a one-time install framework that works at the desktop level that is provided by one of the new brands of widget containers, like those mentioned above.  These gadget frameworks by-pass the browser and look to form the beginning of a new generation of web applications.Gadgets show up everywhere in the mainstream web, like on MySpace, driven by data coming from places like YouTube.  In particular they’re being used frequently for notifications:  do I have new email or has someone outbid me on EBay?  When used in this way, standard messaging tools like email may change.Gadgets are sure to make an appearance in the business world.  In fact, they already are.  Salesforce.com is a leading force, making ‘mashups’ and widgets available as different ways to get at information being tracked. What could gadgets do for the world of ECM?  Some ideas include to-do list gadgets populated with Workflow tasks, a user’s working list gadget that displays repository documents currently being worked on, or a gadget to do quick document searchs limited to enterprise repository documents.  Using a Web Service interface to the ECM repository, like that of Formtek’s, any of these could be created. The concept of a web Portal as a framework for integrating information from many different sources into one consolidated view has been popular for some time.  Portals are typically composed of pluggable user-interface components called portlets or gadgets.  Portlets are powered by Web Services and typically are programmed to be able to pull in data from a variety of corporate and third party data sources.  But portlets were built on framework components of the Portal.   Portlets were only interchangeable among portals built using the same Portal infrastructure.Now there’s a new breed of mini-webapps known as Gadgets and Widgets, next generation portlets.  They live outside the browser on your desktop, but they are Internet aware and are able to exchange and update information via Web Service calls.  These gadgets are based on a new set of platforms, like Yahoo! Widget Engine, live.com, Apple Dashboard, and Google Desktop.  Here are a couple of examples from Yahoo!: last_img read more
