Man who sent intimate phone photo to womans son has 3year jail

first_imgTORONTO – A man who secretly downloaded intimate pictures from a woman’s cellphone, threatened to pass them around, and sent one of the images to her son had his three-year prison term upheld on Monday even though the prosecution and defence had proposed a much lower sentence.In dismissing a sentencing challenge by Daniel Myles, the Ontario Court of Appeal sided with a lower court judge in Hamilton who rejected the joint punishment submission last year.“Three years was within the range that this court has identified for serial harassers,” the Appeal Court said. “It was reasonable for the trial judge to emphasize specific deterrence, public denunciation and separation from society, and to conclude that a penitentiary term was required.”Court documents show Myles pleaded guilty before Judge Timothy Culver to criminal harassment for downloading the contents of his victim’s cellphone onto his computer and threatening to send the intimate images to her friends, co-workers and son. Myles did follow through on his threats by sending photos of the woman’s genitals to her son, the documents said.After hearing the defence and prosecution suggest a sentence of six to nine months, Culver informed them he thought that would be insufficient. He indicated that three years would be a more appropriate punishment. Culver then gave them time to come back and argue the issue. He also gave Myles the opportunity to withdraw his guilty plea but the accused decided against doing so, court documents show.Prosecution and defence then suggested in a new joint submission a sentence of nine to 12 months. Culver said no. He sentenced Myles last June to three years after describing him as someone who was “predatory, lacks empathy for his victims, lacks insight into his offending behaviour,” and had failed to mend his ways despite numerous run-ins with the criminal justice system.Myles appealed, arguing Culver was legally out of line to reject the joint submission.In upholding the sentence, the Appeal Court said Culver had followed the correct process by giving the parties clear notice of his concerns about the adequacy of the punishment they were proposing, inviting them to argue the issue, and by giving Myles the opportunity to withdraw his guilty plea.“Nothing more was required,” the Appeal Court said.The Appeal Court noted Myles had a long criminal record, including three dozen convictions for crimes such as harassment, uttering threats, and theft of telecommunications. He was also known for domestic violence and a “continuing pattern of threatening and abusive behaviour toward partners” and people in the community, the Appeal Court said.Given those circumstances, the Appeal Court found, Culver was entitled to conclude that the proposed punishment was “wholly inadequate and contrary to the public interest,” and instead impose the three-year term.last_img read more

Julie Bowen Stands Up To Cancer

first_imgStand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), and CVS/pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) announced today a new print, radio and digital public service announcement (PSA) featuring award-winning actress and SU2C Ambassador Julie Bowen.Video: It’s Impossible To Beat Cancer. Alone.The PSA aims to bring awareness to the importance of collaboration in the fight against cancer and to encourage the general public to learn more and get involved. The PSA will begin airing this month.“Like everyone in America, I have friends and family who have been affected by cancer. I know the importance of having the best team possible, working together – whether it’s people behind the scenes or those who work directly with the patient as they face a cancer diagnosis,” said Stand Up To Cancer ambassador Julie Bowen. “Through this PSA, we hope to help people realize we all have a part in the battle against cancer. I’m proud to be part of this campaign with Stand Up To Cancer and CVS Health, to help illustrate that it takes a team to accelerate research and to improve cancer survival.”With this PSA, CVS Health reinforces its commitment to helping people on their path to better health through the company’s support of innovative cancer research. CVS Health has committed $10 million to SU2C over three years, supported by an annual in-store campaign. This will be the second year of the in-store fundraising campaign which will be held at CVS/pharmacy locations across the country from November 1 through November 28. Throughout the campaign, customers can make a donation at the register or at www.cvs.com/su2c.“Cancer has touched nearly all of our lives, and as a pharmacy innovation company, CVS Health is proud to collaborate with Stand Up To Cancer to extend our purpose of helping people on their path to better health,” said Helena Foulkes, President, CVS/pharmacy. “Together with our customers and colleagues, we can help support Stand Up To Cancer’s mission to bring groundbreaking treatments to patients as quickly as possible and have a positive impact on the lives of people living with cancer.”One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. While the five-year survival rate for all cancers diagnosed in the United States is up to 68 percent from 49 percent four decades ago, there is still more to be done to develop effective treatments. This PSA, entitled “It’s Impossible To Beat Cancer Alone,” depicts how it takes a team to conquer cancer. From the researchers behind the development of new treatments, to the many people who directly support patients, such as oncologists, nurses, social workers, volunteers, family and friends, it’s a team effort, requiring collaboration, to help cancer patients become long-term cancer survivors. The PSA encourages the public to visit SU2C.org to learn how they can join SU2C and CVS Health in raising funds to support cancer research and get therapies to patients quickly and save lives.“One of the founding principles of SU2C, is that collaboration is essential, and the progress of our Stand Up To Cancer Dream Teams is a perfect example of how powerful team collaboration is,” said SU2C co-founder Sue Schwartz. “We are so grateful and honored to team up with CVS Health in our shared mission to make good health a priority, and to keep spreading the message that each and every one of us can play a part in stopping cancer from taking so many lives.”last_img read more

UN international trade panel tackles emerging issues related to ecommerce

The Vienna-based UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), which has specialized in law reform worldwide for over 30 years, concluded its three-week session on Friday after adopting a draft Model Law on Electronic Signatures, which aims to prepare uniform rules on the legal issues of digital signatures and certification authorities. The Model Law is to apply where electronic signatures are used in the context of commercial activities, but it will not override any consumer protection laws. The newly adopted Model Law on Electronic Signatures is intended to provide certainty as to the legal effectiveness of certain electronic authentication techniques and to offer a standard regarding the conduct to be observed by the various parties involved in an electronic signature process, according to UNCITRAL. The new Model Law is based on a “technologically neutral” approach that is not intended to favour any given product on the market. As the core legal body of the UN system in the field of international trade law, UNICTRAL has developed an extensive body of treaties, model laws and rules which serve to facilitate commercial transactions worldwide. It has also compiled updated information on case law and enactments of uniform commercial law, while providing technical assistance in law reform projects and organizing regional and national seminars on relevant topics of interest. read more

Spice maker McCormick buys Frenchs Franks RedHot food brands

Spice maker McCormick buys French’s, Frank’s RedHot food brands LONDON – U.S. spice maker McCormick & Company is buying the maker of French’s mustard and other condiments in a $4.2 billion cash deal that it regards as a “perfect match.”The Maryland-based company fought off rival bidders to purchase the Reckitt Benckiser food business. The deal, disclosed Tuesday, will create a combined group with annual sales of around US$5 billion.French’s and Frank RedHot brands will become McCormick’s No. 2 and 3 brands, respectively.“RB Foods’ focus on creating products with simple, high-quality ingredients makes it a perfect match for McCormick as we continue to capitalize on the growing consumer interest in healthy, flavourful eating,” said Lawrence E. Kurzius, McCormick’s CEO.The deal is part of RB’s strategy to re-focus on consumer health and hygiene products after it bought U.S. baby formula maker Mead Johnson. The company’s brands include Nurofen, Woolite and Clearasil.“This transaction marks another step towards transforming RB into a global leader in consumer health and hygiene,” said Rakesh Kapoor, CEO of RB.Reckitt’s food business is headquartered in Chester, N.J. The company employs 450, including some 360 in Springfield, Missouri.McCormick has said it wants to strip out around $50 million in cost “synergies” after the takeover, the majority of which would be achieved by 2020.Shore Capital analyst Darren Shirley says Reckitt “is achieving a very attractive valuation for a North American food business, in our view.” by Danica Kirka, The Associated Press Posted Jul 19, 2017 5:13 am MDT Last Updated Jul 19, 2017 at 5:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Recruits still streaming into Columbus for Ohio State Meyer

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer picked up two more recruits Monday. Defensive end recruits Joey Bosa and Lewis Neal verbally committed to play for the Buckeyes starting in the 2013 season. Bosa, a 6-foot-4, 255-pound junior from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. is ranked as the No. 14 overall player by recruiting website Rivals.com and the No. 2 strong side defensive end. During his junior year at St. Thomas Aquinas High School, he compiled eight sacks and 18 tackles for loss. He also had scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Michigan. From his Twitter account, @jbbigbear, he tweeted, “I’m gunna destroy people this year I feel sorry for who ever I go against.” He also tweeted a picture of a silver bullet.

Secret of Mana is the Biggest Surprise Remake of 2018

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Hands-On: ‘Stranded Sails’ Is a Relaxing Farm Sim AdventureHere’s an Hour of Incomprehensible ‘Death Stranding’ Gameplay center_img I don’t know about you guys, but I was somewhat surprised when Square-Enix announced a complete remake of Secret of Mana last August. Not because I felt the game is unworthy of a remake (it is!), but because the announcement seemingly came out of nowhere. I never actually played the original, so I was happy to know I could finally experience it — only with updated 3D graphics and voice overs. Unlike the Final Fantasy VII remake, Secret of Mana didn’t take over a decade to drop. The game is now available on PC, PS4, and PS Vita. Like Shadow of the Colossus, Secret of Mana is a fine example of how to remake a beloved classic.For those who may not know, Secret of Mana brought much needed innovation to the world of RPGs when it released in 1993. While most RPGs of the era featured turn-based combat, Secret of Mana had real-time battles. Players were free to move around the field and attack whenever they wished. The game even had co-op for up to three players. Given its status in the genre, the game has been ported to the Wii, Wii U, mobile devices, and even the SNES Classic Edition. If any game deserved a remake, it was Secret of Mana.Instead of updated sprites, this remake features full 3D graphics. Despite the change in dimensions, the visuals retain the same bright colors and overall whimsical aesthetic. The characters’ “chibi” appearance translates well into 3D. During gameplay, the camera retains the original overhead perspective. It’s during cutscenes where the 3D graphics truly come alive, since you’re able to see more detail. Though not graphically intensive, the visuals are pleasing to the eye.You fight monsters by using swords, spears, and arrows. In order to deal the most damage, it’s best to attack when the stamina gauge is at 100%. Otherwise, one’s attacks become weak. This gauge keeps the game from devolving into a brainless hack and slasher. You have to know when to attack and when to back off to recharge. Like any good RPG, combat requires a certain degree of strategizing. Players must also explore towns, dungeons, and the overworld. Everything you remember from the SNES game is here, just with slicker presentation.While the basic gameplay is virtually identical, the updated animations make for a smoother experience. The movements of characters and creatures help give them a nice sense of personality. Even the environment is nicely animated. Trees and grass sway in the wind, while rivers and waterfalls move along their intended paths. These elements were only hinted at in the original. Now, with the power of current technology, these animations are fully realized.You can play Secret of Mana either with English or Japanese voice overs. The game’s soundtrack has also been rearranged. If you’re a fan of the classic music, don’t fret! You can still listen to it if you wish. As for the voices, I’m usually fine with English dubs in games (and anime). However, I wasn’t exactly feeling the voice work here. They sound a bit too silly for my tastes. The fact character’s faces rarely emote exacerbated this issue. I went with the Japanese voices instead. I’m used to reading subtitles even with English voices, so having Japanese dialogue was fine.On top of new graphics and sound, Secret of Mana sports a number of features which make things more user-friendly. If you die inside of a dungeon, you won’t lose much progress thanks to auto saves. Hot keys enhance the existing ring menu. Players can now assign weapons, magic, and items to the L and R buttons. There are more options for your companion AI partners. You can set them to attack the same enemy as you or have them target surrounding foes. Like the original, you can play with up to two friends. Lastly, the mini-maps ensure you won’t have to rely on sign posts to find your way. All of these minor features go a long way to taking away needless frustration.Despite all of the modern trappings, Secret of Mana still feels like an old-school JRPG. While in a town, you talk to various NPCs who repeat the same dialogue. You also walk into their homes and help yourself to their treasure. In the field, you encounter enemies you can kill in order to gain experience points and money.The levels are also pretty old-school. You run along linear paths, entering different rooms in order to acquire items that help you progress. Dungeons can feel claustrophobic, and do not provide the type of freedom found in modern RPGs. The game’s underlying old-school mechanics aren’t a detriment, however. They still manage to work even in 2018. I suppose this is a testament to the games’s solid design.Remaking a classic isn’t easy. Thankfully, Square-Enix managed to successfully bring Secret of Mana to the modern age. Aside from some questionable English voices and facial animations, I found it an excellent remake. It’s evident SQE didn’t just haphazardly put this title together. This is a labor of love. Hopefully, we’ll see other SquareSoft RPGs like Chrono Trigger and XenoGears get the same treatment in the future. In some ways, I wish the Final Fantasy VII remake would have been remade like this… but that’s a story for another day. For now, I’m just happy to experience Secret of Mana in this form. It really is a great deal of fun.last_img read more

Oregon faithhealing couple found guilty in infants death

first_imgOREGON CITY, Ore. — A couple who prayed and rubbed olive oil on their sick infant rather than seek medical care for the dying boy were convicted Thursday of manslaughter, becoming the latest members of an Oregon faith-healing church to be blamed in their child’s death. Dale and Shannon Hickman, both 26, are members of the Followers of Christ Church, which has a history of rejecting medical care for congregants’ children and relying instead on techniques such as prayer and anointing the sick with oils. Five other church members have been convicted in Clackamas County for crimes related to the rejection of medical care for their children, said Greg Horner, chief deputy district attorney.The Hickmans’ conviction on second-degree manslaughter charges typically requires a mandatory minimum sentence of six years in prison. But because of a religious exemption in state law at time of the crime, the couple likely will face no more than 18 months in prison and a $250,000 fine, The Oregonian reported. Clackamas County Circuit Court Judge Robert Herndon allowed the couple to remain free until they are sentenced Oct. 31. Prosecutors claimed Shannon Hickman never sought prenatal care when she was pregnant with David, who was born two months early at his grandmother’s home and died less than nine hours later when he had trouble breathing. He was born with a bacterial infection and underdeveloped lungs.last_img read more
