The Anatomy of Fear Two Wolf Lake Middle School students were arrested on charges of Affray, Disrupting a School Function and Resisting an Officer With Violence. The school’s resource officer (SRO) used a “taser” device to subdue one of the students and break up the fight between the two students.On Monday, school administrators from Wolf Lake Middle School asked for Officer Vic Barger, the SRO, to break up a fight they could not stop between a 14 and 15-year old student. He attempted to stop the fight, but was met with resistance.Officer Barger threatened to use a taser, which caused one student to immediately stop fighting. The other student seized the opportunity and tackled the student who had stopped. Barger again tried to remove the resisting student, and then used his taser device on the student.According to Sgt. Ed Chittenden (The Apopka Police Department Public Information Officer), the technique is called a “drive stun”. It does not place probes into the subject, but delivers an electric shock to a local area, in this case the student’s upper thigh. This immediately stopped the attack and the student was brought into custody.Both students were charged with Affray (which is defined loosely as Disturbing The Peace), and Disrupting a School Function. The student (who was drive-stunned) was additionally charged with Resisting An Officer With Violence.Sgt. Chittenden went on to explain why an SRO would carry a taser device on a middle school campus“They are Apopka Police, not the police of students. They perform the role of peacekeeper, mentor and provide security to students and employees. While I was an SRO at the middle school, I dealt with kidnappings, armed persons including students, violent parents, burglaries, etc. In addition, they frequently respond to serious crimes outside of the school campus when necessary. We do not want to restrict the tools we provide to keep our officers and the community safe. Lastly, it is common practice in the United States to equip SRO’s with the device; there is nothing unique with our situation here.”Chittenden also stated that Officer Barger’s actions appear to be within applicable policy, and state law.“As is our custom with every use of force incident, several people will review the actions to verify the best response to the force that has been used.” Please enter your comment!

Sunday Sep 19, 2010 Pierre Mignoni dislocated finger and Joe Van Niekerk try Toulon put in a great performance yesterday as they beat rivals Clermont 28-16 in their Top 14 meeting at the Stade Mayol. Pierre Mignoni dislocated his finger, but continued on, and Joe Van Niekerk scored a nice try. Both clips are featured here.Jonny Wilkinson looked back to his best form as he kicked twenty three points to add to captain Van Niekerks try as Toulon took up fifth place on the table, no doubt making them more comfortable after their recent showings.Clermont themselves havent looked great so far this season, as the champions have only four wins out of seven matches.Toulon scrumhalf Mignoni dislocated his finger during the match, resulting in the team physios having to come on the field and jerk in back into place. Its always interesting watching how they do it, and seeing the players reactions. Intense pain, but once its in its not too bad, and as you will see in the clip, Mignoni continued on.The Van Niekerk try came from a crazy period of play which included fullback Rory Lamont looking like he was knocked out, but somehow getting back in play to provide the scoring pass after a neat change of angle from the Toulon skipper.As for flyhalf Wilkinson, he kicked five penalties, two drop goals, and converted the try, taking him to second highest points scorer of the season. Toulon president Mourad Boudjellal has since stated that he looks back to the form of 2003.“Wilkinson is one of the best outside-halves in the history of rugby, he showed that today. We rediscovered the Jonny of the 2003 vintage. It’s a Jonny who, in my eyes, is much stronger than last season,” he said.“I have people who have private boxes at Mayol stadium and who come by private jet from London when Jonny Wilkinson plays,” Boudjellal added.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting…
Container Guest House / Poteet ArchitectsSave this projectSaveContainer Guest House / Poteet Architects Year: Projects Houses Save this picture!© Chris Cooper+ 25 Share Area: 320 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs: Chris CooperText description provided by the architects. The Container Guest House is the first of several projects by Poteet Architects we will be featuring. As a national award-winning firm, Poteet Architects is best known for their sensitive adaptive reuse of existing buildings and a fresh, rigorous approach to modern interior design. This project originated from Poteet Architects’s client’s wish to experiment with shipping containers. She lives in a small warehouse on a former industrial site just south of downtown. The finished project serves as a guesthouse and is fitted with a shower/WC and a custom stainless sink. The large steel and glass lift/slide and end window wall open the interior to the surrounding landscape. The remainder of the interior is used as a garden shed.

The planted roof is held off the container top, providing shade and air-flow to reduce heat gain. The interior is insulated with spray foam then lined with bamboo plywood, equally appropriate for the floor as the walls. The grey water from the sink and shower is captured for roof irrigation. The WC is a composting toilet. The rear of the container is screened by wire mesh panels which will eventually be covered in evergreen vines.

The deck is made up of HVAC equipment pads (made of recycled soda bottles) set in a steel frame. The exterior light fixtures are blades from a tractor disc plow—a common sight in south Texas.Save this picture!© Chris CooperProject gallerySee allShow less10,000 LEED-certified HomesArticlesFarm in Tokyo / ON design partnersArticles Share 2010 ArchDaily CopyAbout this officePoteet ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan AntonioHousesUnited StatesPublished on April 14, 2011Cite: “Container Guest House / Poteet Architects” 14 Apr 2011.

Chanting “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” over 100 activists took to north Philadelphia streets around Temple University campus on Dec. 6 to demand that university officials stop their attacks on professor Marc Lamont Hill for his political activism in solidarity with Palestine. Palestinian author and activist Susan Abulhawa kicked off the rally at Temple’s Bell Tower by speaking on the millennium-long history of the Indigenous Palestinian population in the region now known as Israel. In November, Israeli officials denied Abulhawa entry to attend a conference of Palestinian writers in the West Bank. A second mini-rally took place outside the offices of the Temple Board of Trustees. The demonstration for professor Hill, initiated by Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and endorsed by over a dozen community organizations, was called to denounce Board chair Patrick O’Connor’s push to fire the professor. Hill was under attack for a speech he gave on Nov. 28 at the U.N.’s International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Dr. Hill’s record supporting freedomDr. Hill, a tenured professor at Temple, author, community activist and media commentator, had just returned from a trip to Palestine. At the U.N. meeting, Hill spoke at length about Israel’s systematic stripping away of freedoms for Palestinians, including passage of more than 60 laws that deny Palestinians access to housing, education, family reunification and other freedoms maintained for Jewish citizens of Israel.Hill addressed the growing “relationship of resistance” between Palestinians and Black Americans. “Palestine will be free from the river to the sea,” Hill said. Claiming that this amounted to “hate speech” and a call for “the destruction of Israel,” Zionist forces in the U.S. launched an attack against Hill that resulted in CNN firing him Nov. 29 from his position as an occasional commentator. O’Connor, a white lawyer, said Hill’s talk at the U.N. “blackens” [Temple’s] name unnecessarily,” which is questionable language when used against Hill, a Black professor. O’Connor — one of Bill Cosby’s defense lawyers in Cosby’s sexual assault case — was himself asked to step down as Board chair by the Feminist Alliance. In January 2015, Hill was part of a delegation of Dream Defenders, Black Lives Matter and Ferguson organizers who traveled to Palestine. In July 2018, Hill organized a forum on Palestine in Philadelphia that included a significant panel addressing solidarity between Black communities in the U.S. and the Palestinian struggle. In November 2018, Hill led a delegation of Black activists to Palestine where they witnessed firsthand the oppression of Palestinians. Having just returned from Palestine, Hill advocated equal rights for all people in historic Palestine and the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homeland. He spoke out against apartheid conditions for millions of Palestinians in both Israel and the occupied territories in the West Bank and Gaza.Gabriel Bryant, from the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home, was part of the November delegation. Speaking at the Dec. 6 rally, Bryant compared his experience as a Black man in Philadelphia confronting stop-and-frisk to the daily, repeated checkpoints to which every Palestinian is subject. Students for Justice in Palestine’s callIn its protest call, SJP said, “Painting freedom, secular democracy and equality as an incitement to violence or even genocide is ahistorical and an argument made in bad faith. Dr. Hill’s statements … cannot be classified as ‘hate speech’ against Jewish people. We reject the sentiment that anti-Zionism is equivalent to anti-Semitism, because denouncing a settler-colonialist, white supremacist state does not make one anti-Semitic.” Their statement continued, “Because we recognize that the Zionist entity is an apartheid state, we know that genuine democracy does not — cannot — exist in Israel. We know that the imperialist Western powers have manufactured an artificial idea of peace and democracy in order to pursue profit at the expense of colonized peoples. Finally, we know that to advocate for a free Palestine is to advocate for freedom from apartheid, for liberation from siege, for basic access to water and safety for ALL people living in Palestine.”The students demand that Temple University rescind their unprofessional, inappropriate and anti-academic statement conflating Dr. Hill’s words with “hate speech” and that Temple pledge support for courses and open discussion about Palestine on campus.As the rally ended at North Broad and Cecil B. Moore, several speakers connected the attack against Hill with other efforts to silence Black voices, including the voice of journalist and political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. Pam Africa, just returning from a visit with Abu-Jamal, spoke on the need for solidarity between prisoners in Palestine and those in the U.S. and shared Abu-Jamal’s message of solidarity with the student demonstrators.(WW photos: Joe Piette)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
