Human remains found in home where children had been removed during abuse investigation

first_imgOfficials in Phoenix, Arizona are reporting that they have discovered human skeletal remains inside of a home where three children had previously been removed by the Department of Child Safety.The discovery was made Tuesday after the Phoenix Police Department was called to the home due to the report of a fire.Officials say they were first made aware of the conditions inside the home on Monday after an 11-year-old girl called authorities to report that she had been left inside the home alone. When authorities arrived to the home, they found the child had in fact been left alone and also found evidence that the child may have been abused.The child was then taken into DCS custody.The department returned to the home a day later after learning that there were two additional children ages 4 and 9 who also lived in the home. They too were taken into DCS custody.Several hours later, a neighbor contacted police to report that their neighbor’s house was on fire.Authorities were able to put out the fire inside the home and while doing so, discovered human remains.Officials then arrested 50-year-old Maribel Loera and 56-year-old Rafael Loera.Both are facing child abuse charges while Rafael Loera faces additional charges of concealing human body parts, endangerment, and arson.Authorities have yet to identify the remains nor have they indicated if they belong to an adult or a child.last_img read more

first_imgBy Tom PaolellaEditor’ Note: The Two River Times™ is a 2012 sponsor of “Paint the Town Pink,” an initiative presented by Riverview Medical Center to encourage annual mammography.

As supporters of Paint the Town Pink who promote the importance of annual mammography, thousands of men over the past five years have made it their mission to get the word out about annual mammography and help others support the women in their lives.Bill Rancic, author, entrepreneur and husband, will share his story of career, family and his wife’s breast cancer diagnosis.A new supporter of Paint the Town Pink for this year is Bill Rancic. You may remember him as the first winner on television’s “The Apprentice,” or maybe you have come to love him as one half of the Giuliana and Bill duo on the Style Network. Whichever the case, you won’t want to miss a Paint the Town Pink exclusive coming up in just a few short days.

Nestle opens R500m factories in SA

first_img8 August 2012 Swiss multinational food company Nestle has opened two new factories in the town of Babelegi, north of Pretoria as part of a R500-million investment in its South African operations, creating over 130 permanent jobs in the process. The two new factories are for the manufacturing of the company’s breakfast cereals – Milo and Cheerios – and the addition of new production lines for the manufacturing of Maggi noodles. It means these products will no longer need to be imported into South Africa. The project has created over 130 permanent jobs, as well as 300 indirect jobs over a 20-month period during the construction phase. Speaking at the launch, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said South Africa and the rest of the African continent had a significant role to play in food security around the world and in many food-deficient countries. He also urged African businesses to add more value to their agricultural products. “This investment is one of the several investment opportunities that has taken place recently in South Africa by a global multinational company in the agro-processing area, and it is reflecting the fact that we as the South African government are trying to position ourselves and deepening the presence of agro-processing in our country and companies,” he said. Nestle’s Global CEO, Paul Bulcke, said the company had a long history in South Africa and Africa, and that consumers and their employees held an important key role in their products and services. “Forty percent of our products are sold in emerging economies and are expected to grow up to 50% in 2020,” Bulcke said. “We have been present on the African continent for more than 100 years, and we see great growth opportunities for the future.” The company said it would continue to invest in South Africa in line with their long term commitment to business sustainability, growth and economic development. Nestle was granted approval for the project in accordance with Section 12I Tax Allowance Programme of the Income Tax Act. Davies approved the tax allowance deduction for Nestle of R168-million in terms of their investment and training needs. The 12I Tax Allowance Programme allowance is geared towards providing investment support in new manufacturing assets and the training of employees. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

Govt ‘working on Khoi, San land rights’

first_img18 April 2013 South Africa’s Rural Development and Land Reform Department says a platform for the Khoi and San to lodge their land claims is part of various initiatives to reverse the negative effects of the 1913 Natives’ Land Act. The department says it has already kick-started the process, which will lead to amendments of the Restitution of Land Rights Act of 1994. According to the department, the amendments will provide for the re-opening of the lodgement of restitution claims, by people who missed the deadline of 31 December 1998. It will also involve the creation of exceptions to the 1913 Natives Land Act for heritage sites, historic landmarks, and opportunities for the descendants of the Khoi and San to claim. These developments follow the announcement by President Jacob Zuma during his State of the National address in February. The Natives Land Act contributed a lot to creating the triple challenge of poverty, unemployment and inequality confronting the country today, government believes. The plans emerged at the two-day Khoi and San Dialogue held in Kimberly in the Northern Cape. Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Gugile Nkwinti said the dialogue with the Khoi-San was an epic and historical moment, one which has not been embarked upon before. “It reaffirms government’s commitment to address the concerns and needs of the Khoi and San communities, and to social cohesion and nation building,” he said. The inputs made during this dialogue will lay a solid foundation that will help the government in the process of the lodgement of the claims by the descendants of the Khoi and San, Nkwinti said.

Update: Microsoft’s Fight Against Google Continues With YouTube App Complaint

first_imgFor its part, Google believes that’s more than enough. “Contrary to Microsoft’s claims, it’s easy for consumers to view YouTube videos on Windows phones,” a YouTube spokeswoman wrote in an email. “Windows phone users can access all the features of YouTube through our HTML5-based mobile website, including viewing high-quality video streams, finding favorite videos, seeing video ratings, and searching for video categories.  In fact, we’ve worked with Microsoft for several years to help build a great YouTube experience on Windows phones.”The problem, according to Microsoft, is that Google’s behavior with regard to Windows Phone YouTube app is emblematic of its behavior in general. Two years ago, Microsoft complained to the European Union about Google’s tactics, as well as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. (Longtime Microsoft watchers have long noted the irony of Microsoft complaining about anti-competitive actions, given the company’s issues with the U.S. Department of Justice, and the possibility that the EU may impose fines or other sanctions after Microsoft ignored the browser choice restrictions from a previous EU settlement.)But now the FTC has ended its Google investigation with a slap on the wrist, Microsoft can’t seem to give up the fight: Dave Heiner, vice president and deputy general counsel from Microsoft said Wednesday that the YouTube app dispute is simply a representative example of the “misconduct” that Google has employed with respect to its practices on the Internet. “Just last month, we learned from YouTube that senior executives at Google told them not to enable a first-class YouTube experience on Windows Phones,” Heiner wrote.“Google often says that the antitrust offenses with which it has been charged cause no harm to consumers,” Heiner added. “Google is wrong about that. In this instance, for example, Google’s refusal deprives consumers who use competing platforms of a comparable experience in accessing content that is generally available on the Web, almost all of which is created by users rather than by Google itself. And it’s inconsistent, to say the least, with Google’s public insistence that other competing services, such as Facebook, should offer Google complete access to their content so they can index and include it on their search site.”In his midnight post Thursday night, Heiner claimed that Google “inexplicably has not promised to allow all advertisers to port their campaign data to other ad platforms—only those with a primary billing address in the United States”.Microsoft also characterized the FTC’s ruling on the so-called FRAND patent issues ineffective. Motorola Mobility, which was acquired by Google last year, has embroiled itself in a string of lawsuits, seeking to coerce royalties for patents used in developing standards like Wi-Fi. Heiner claimed that the FTC’s lukewarm requirements, full of legal loopholes, would allow Google to continue its anti-competitive behavior.“During patent licensing negotiations, Google can continue to threaten that it will sue for an injunction, knowing that many would-be licensees will not be in a position to engage in litigation or arbitration with Google and also meet all of the other procedural requirements set forth in the decree that are imposed on the licensee,” Heiner wrote. “Google can even continue to use its standard essential patents to fend off patent infringement actions against it: the proposed decree gives Google leeway to sue for an injunction on its standard essential patents if it takes the position that injunctive relief sought against it is based on a patent that is standard essential.”Now that the FTC has made its ruling, those concerns may be moot. But Microsoft made several references to behavior overseas, an indication that it may be seeking to tacitly plead its case before the European Union – which some now see as the “hard man” of international antitrust law. Whatever the situation, it’s clear that Microsoft has no intention of giving up its fight against Google.See also Google Escapes Unscathed From FTC Settlement and Google’s FTC Settlement Is An Epic Fail For Microsoft. Related Posts (This story has been updated to reflect additional comments Microsoft’s Dave Heiner made Thursday night.)Even as the Federal Trade Commission ends its two-year investigation of Google with a whimper, Microsoft is desperately hoping that the war isn’t yet over. The latest battleground: the YouTube app for Windows Phone.In a blog post on Thursday night, Dave Heiner, vice president and deputy general counsel from Microsoft, expressed his disappointment in the ruling, complaining that the FTC missed the boat on issues of data portability, standard-essential patents, and other issues that include search bias.On the face of it, whether or not Google should be obligated to license Microsoft the API technology necessary to build a Windows Phone app to access Google’s YouTube video service seems relatively trivial. In a blog post, Microsoft said that Google has unreasonably blocked access to the necessary APIs, preventing it from doing so. Google already supplies a YouTube “app,” which is merely an HTML5 version of its website, which runs inside the Internet Explorer browser on the phone.
