Police ID man who killed self on TV after chase

In this video grab provided by Fox 10 News, a vehicle involved in a police car chase is followed on an interstate highway by a television station helicopter west of Phoenix, Friday, Sept. 28, 2012. Police say a man fatally shot himself in the head on live national television at the end of the high-speed chase that began in Phoenix when the driver stopped, ran into the desert and placed a handgun to his head and fired.

Map shows Tonopah Arizona, where a suspected car-jacker appears to shoot himself on live television.

This image provided by the Arizona Department of Corrections shows Jodon Romero. Phoenix police identified Romero as a wanted felon who shot at officers and then led them on a hour-long chase Friday, Sept. 28, 2012 that ended with his suicide, which was inadvertently televised nationally by Fox News. (AP Photo/Arizona Department of Corrections)

(AP) ? A man who stole a car at gunpoint, shot at Phoenix police officers and then led them on a chase that ended with his suicide broadcast on national television was identified Saturday as a wanted felon with a long criminal history.

Jodon F. Romero, 33, was wanted for violating his parole for a weapons conviction and had numerous other violent crimes in his background, police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson said.

At the end of an hour-long pursuit on an interstate west of Phoenix Friday, Romero pulled into the desert and an officer shot at him, although it appears he missed, Thompson said. Romero then walked off the dirt road, put a gun to his head and killed himself.

Fox News was covering the chase that began about midday Friday using a live helicopter shot from Phoenix affiliate KSAZ-TV. Anchor Shepard Smith told viewers that the video was supposed to be on a delay so it could be cut off if something went awry.

"We really messed up, and we're all very sorry," Smith said minutes after the suicide aired. Fox apologized for showing the violence on air. KSAZ itself was not airing the chase.

On Saturday, Thompson said police did everything in their power to de-escalate the situation, but Romero seemed intent on continuing a crime spree that began with a minor incident where he apparently hit a passing car with his hand, leading to a call to police.

As officers were heading to the south Phoenix area, they learned that a Dodge Caliber sedan had just been stolen at gunpoint from a nearby restaurant parking lot.

They spotted the car and gave chase, but pulled back when Romero running red lights and endangering the public, Thompson said. Instead, unmarked cars and a police helicopter began following him at a distance.

Romero drove into an industrial area and spotted two marked police units, with one officer standing beside one car talking with another officer. He veered into their lane and opened fire, missing the officers but hitting one patrol car.

He then got onto Interstate 10, heading west toward California at speeds in excess of 100 mph.

The police helicopter and unmarked police vehicles followed at a distance, and the Fox helicopter began its coverage.

Romero fired at the police helicopter during the chase, but didn't hit it, Thompson said.

About 75 miles west of Phoenix he got off the interstate and drove off into the surrounding desert.

He eventually stopped, got out of the car and began walking down a dirt road. That's when an officer fired one shot at him.

Although Thompson said it appear the shot missed, television footage shows Romero stumbling and falling down and appearing to feel his torso before waking into some brush.

That's when he shot himself in the head.

An autopsy will determine if he was actually shot by an officer as well.

Thompson said it was clear to officers they had to stop Romero from getting back to a populated area.

"Anybody who will shoot at police officers, that shows a total disregard for them, will shoot at anybody else," he said. "And this needed to be put to an end. Even after we backed out all the marked units he still continued to go."

Arizona Department of Corrections records show Romero was imprisoned from April 2010 to June 2012 for a felony weapons charge.

BlackBerry 10 L-series tutorial videos surface online, give a literal peek at the future (video)

BlackBerry 10 Lseries tutorial videos surface online, give a literal peek at the future video

Those of us who've used a BlackBerry PlayBook will be familiar with the inevitable first-boot tutorials showing how to navigate the swipe-driven interface before we're let loose. Thanks to a series of demonstration videos leaked by BlackBerryItalia, it's apparent that we won't escape that educational process on BlackBerry 10 devices, either. The four clips show the basics of what we know the gesture experience will be like on full-touch L-series phones, including the signature BlackBerry Peek to check notifications and the unified inbox. Anyone looking for a direct clue as to what production BlackBerry 10 hardware will entail might be frustrated, mind you -- the rendered phone appears to be a placeholder rather than the L-series or a Dev Alpha B, and the device name is censored in an attempt to protect the source. That said, the clips provide a very straightforward explanation of the new interface concept and give us one more indication that RIM is closer to launch.

6 Favorite Words To Help You Make More Money Online

This article may look different from the traditional, but you?d enjoy it.

Why? Because words are powerful and if you understand the effect of words, your success will be easier than picking up pretty girls. Lol!

When I started blogging, I came across an epic blog post and after going through it, my thoughts about making money changed.

The reason why you?re not making enough money from your website could be the wrong use of words.

Or better yet, you don?t even understand the impact of certain words.

Why words are powerful

Words are powerful because they?re the exact thoughts of the subconscious mind.

What we say from our mouths has its root from our thoughts. The earlier you realize the blogging is not all about waking up every morning to write, the better for you. Successful internet entrepreneurs don?t joke with words.

They can bury their heads meditating on a specific word ? and sooner or later, you?d see the effects: Thousands of subscribers, speaking engagements, six figure earnings and so much more.

At the end of this post, I?d like you to add your favorite word. Make sure it?s one word, and not a phrase. Here are 6 of my favorite words that could help you make more money.

1.????? Email ? ? ? ?email marketing

Yes, that wasn?t a typo.

Email is my favorite word because with it, you I can build a strong nexus with potential customers.

Click here to see why email marketing is important.

The right email campaign could generate a staggering income ? I love email marketing.

Most of what you must do as a blogger or entrepreneur is to build an email list. In fact, nothing is as important as collecting leads.

It doesn?t matter whether you?re selling physical products from Amazon & Ebay, or digital products from Clickbank & CJ, the bottom line is to start collecting email leads from Day 1. Yes, from the very first day!

Let me shock you: if you?re a blogger and you?re not building a mailing list, I?m afraid because you may not be in business when next I see you.

Don?t get me wrong, you could make money without selling through emails, but it?s the most difficult thing to do. I make more money from my list, than I do from organic traffic. Is email your favorite word?

2.????? Content

No matter what you?re selling online, content is the bedrock of your business. I like the word ?content? because it paves way for other marketing practices. Without quality content on your blog, don?t even bother guest blogging or marketing through social media.

And Google loves fresh content. If you can challenge yourself to produce quality and valuable content regularly, you?d reach 75% of your target audience, even without social media or forum marketing.

Organic visitors would trail your blog and hand you their hard earned money. If you enjoy reading quality content like this (I suppose), your readers also deserve the best. Make it your vision, pursue it.

3.????? Marketing

Why is ?marketing? one of my favorite words?

It?s obvious; marketing is the fuel that powers your blog engine. If you don?t market your products and services, you?d be broke. Period!

And quality content without the right readers to consume it is a waste of time.

Most likely, you want to gain traction, build a community and make money online. Well, it?s not going to happen overnight. You need to market your blog post, your ?hire me? page, your new e-book and any other income asset. Don?t wait for them to come ? go and meet them wherever they are. But marketing is not for lazy people, here?s why:

4.????? Smart

Being smart is the key to winning the race of life. I know people who work 6 hours per week and make six figure income annually, whereas, a couple of my good friends works about 10 ? 12 hours weekly, but has nothing to show for it. What?s wrong with my friends?

Even though they?re hard working, it?s obvious that they?re working on the wrong tasks. For instance, if you spend 4 hours on Twitter every day and expect to grow your blog, how feasible is that? As a blogger, writing, optimizing, marketing and relationship building are fundamental elements that brings long-term success.

You?ve to work hard in a smart way. Don?t spend time on activities that can drain your energy, instead, work on your core objectives. Every task must be tailored to meeting your goal. I?m yet to find any secret to living the internet lifestyle. Anyways, if there is, taking action in a smart way is the ultimate.

5.????? Monetize ? ??monetize a blog

When should you monetize your blog?

This has been a controversial question and I?ve seen it popping up from every nook and cranny of the web.

But what?s the BIG deal? If you feel comfortable monetizing in the first month of launching your business, go ahead.

If not, wait until you?ve built a community like Copyblogger media (Brian Clark) did.

As for me, I got my first client after 1 month of starting my freelance writing blog. So, it?s relative?

The bottom line is to ?monetize.? You can?t make money without a clear monetization path.

Most people who complain that blogging is full of crap and scam have issues with selling. Some people actually have problems with promotion or trying to convince their readers to buy.

The word ?monetize? is my favorite ? what?s yours?

6.????? Traffic

Who doesn?t want more traffic?

The truth of the matter is, without traffic you can?t go far in your business. No matter what business model you?ve chosen, potential customers must come to your blog or you?d quit anytime soon. One of the blogging nightmares is lack of traffic, but there is more.

Here is the harsh truth: You don?t actually need thousands of traffic, you need targeted traffic. Why? Because 100 targeted traffic to your website is better than 1000 untargeted traffic to the same website.

For instance, if you?re selling web hosting, then, you need people who wants to buy web hosting and nothing else.

Now, if 10 people visits and buys the VPS or Dedicated hosting packages, isn?t it better than 100 people who just admire your animated header, the color merging and awesome design? I guess you don?t need that type of audience. They waste your time and burn your bandwidth.

What is your favorite word?

I?d like to know your favorite word, how the word has aligned your thoughts and actions towards reaching your goals. Do you think words are powerful or just mere combinations of alphabets? The comment box below is yours ? share your opinion and let?s fall in love with words. Your success is sure!

Four Splendid Gaming Apps... and NFL Pro 2013

Four Splendid Gaming Apps... and NFL Pro 2013As Owen Good often reminds us, not every Gaming App of the Day is a good one. For every Bad Piggies, The Room or Bar Story 2 there are a dozen NFL Pro 2013s, and he seems to wind up playing them all.

Oftentimes we'll play gaming apps for our daily spotlight based on our own personal preferences. We'll see something that catches our eyes (like fishhooks) and we'll dive right in. Sometimes, however, we are assigned them, as I kind of did with Owen this week. I mean, he's our sports guy! It's a sports game!

I'm so sorry, Owen.

If it helps, there are at least three picks on this week's list that are spectacular! The Room is one of the best puzzle adventure games I've played in forever, Bad Piggies has those pigs in it, and Kirk's pick has anime people mixing drinks in a bar!

That's what you should do. Go to a bar. Bring your iPhone.

Curl Your Bacon Before Baking for Crispy Bacon Tubes [Friday Fun]

Curl Your Bacon Before Baking for Crispy Bacon Tubes You may know that baking bacon is a great way to cook it up quickly and evenly, but for a little fun and flavor, the next time you bake it, why not season your bacon and twist it into spirals before baking? It should hold its shape while cooking, and when it comes out you'll have curly bacon straws?much more interesting than simple strips.

Over at The Wicked Noodle, in between professing her love for bacon and this tip, the author suggests spicing up your bacon with brown sugar and chipotle powder to give it a spicy-sweet kick. If you curl the bacon this way, that flavor will really stay with the end result, since it'll be on the inside while the bacon is cooking. She also notes that thicker cuts may be a problem here, so you might want to use an oven-safe skewer to twist the bacon around if you're using particularly thick strips. Even if you don't candy or spice up the bacon, it's a neat trick?not that we really need tricks to enjoy bacon.

Bicycle Tools You Need to Have | Content for Reprint

It is safe to assume that everyone with a bike should have a set of bicycle tools that they keep with them all times. This set of tools will be able to help you in solving problems related to your bike. If possible, you need to carry the tool with you everywhere and every time you ride your bicycle. It eases you in fixing problems you have with your bike. There are some tools that must be present in your bicycle tool box. Without these tools, you will find it difficult to fix the bike yourself.

The first bicycle tools you must have are tubes. If you have a bike, it is suggested that you have at least two extra tubes with you. Tubes or tire valves can be found in almost every bike store around you. There are two types of tire valve owned by almost every bike that are released recently. Those tubes are called "Presta" and "Shrader". The former is a valve tire that comes from France. It is also called French valve. This valve is characterized as small and thin. The latter, on the other hand, is bigger than the former and looks a lot like a car tire valve.

The second tool is a lever for the tires. This tool is an important bicycle tool you should have. Lever is shaped like a beer bottle opener and is used to detach the tires from the wheels. Since it can break the tires, you have to be really careful in using it. If you go to bike stores, you will find that lever is sold in a set.

The third tool is a bicycle pump. This is an essential bicycle tool that people must have. The bike pump that you should have is the one that is attachable to your bike. People call this kind of pump as a frame pump. The characteristic of this pump is its light weight. This pump can come in handy during a sudden flat tire during a cycling activity. Using a pump requires practice and an inexperienced person can experience difficulty in doing so.

Other bicycle tools that are needed are a bicycle patch repair kit, which serves as a back up when there is a sudden flat tire; a "Presta" valve adapter that is used to repair a flat tire that your friend may have, which weighs less than the frame pump; and carbon dioxide cartridge inflation that you can use when you do not have times to fix a flat tire yourselves. These tools are really necessary helpful to your bike. So, if you have not had them with you, you should buy them right away.

Furthermore, there are also some regular maintenance bicycle tools. First tool that should be owned is cleaning liquid. This liquid is usually sold with soft cloths. You can use the soft cloths to help you apply the cleaning liquid on your bike. However, you have to be careful not to scratch the surface of your bike. The second maintenance tool is a screwdriver. You need to have, at least, two kinds of screwdriver for your bike, which are flat head and cross-head or Phillips screwdrivers. Next tool that needs to be possessed is a pair of pliers. It is better to have both short and long pliers. The following tool is a wire cutter that you usually can get together with the pliers. A small hammer is complimentary if you need to hit a part of the bike to get it back to its place. Other maintenance tools are plastic tire levers, which are used to peel off the bike tires; a torch to calibrate the disc brakes; a set of wrenches; brush, to clean the various parts of your bike; and a toothbrush for bike parts that are hard to reach with brush.

NSAE ? Priorit? ? l'ordre et obsession s?curitaire : les causes ...

Par Didier Fassin

A la gauche, on reproche souvent d?avoir fait siens les th?mes de l?ordre et de la s?curit?, qui sont typiquement ceux de la droite. C?est vrai, ? en juger par l??volution de son discours des deux derni?res d?cennies, mais peut-?tre n?est-ce pas l? l?essentiel. Ne faut-il pas plut?t s?inqui?ter que, sur ces questions, comme sur bien d?autres, concentr?e sur les seules cons?quences, elle ne parvienne plus ? agir sur les causes, et m?me ne s?autorise plus ? les discuter publiquement.

S?il y a une diff?rence fondamentale entre la gauche et la droite, elle r?side dans la capacit? et la volont? d?aborder les probl?mes de la soci?t? en termes de causalit? sociale et pas seulement de responsabilit? individuelle. L? o? la pens?e lib?rale lie un individu et un acte par une relation rationnelle (?tre endett?, quand on est pauvre, c?est ne pas savoir g?rer ses ressources, et s?enrichir, c?est se montrer entreprenant), l?analyse progressiste int?gre des logiques et des m?canismes sociaux (l?endettement des familles modestes et l?enrichissement des ?lites renvoient ? des enjeux plus larges d?in?galit?s, et donc de justice).

C?est dans le domaine des ?carts ? la loi ? du moins lorsqu?ils concernent la d?linquance ordinaire, car la d?linquance ?conomique b?n?ficie d?un traitement diff?rent ? que le contraste est le plus marqu? : pour les uns, seule est ? consid?rer la responsabilit? de l?individu et l?unique r?ponse est la sanction ; pour les autres, le contexte social est aussi ? prendre en compte et la r?ponse doit inclure la pr?vention. Notons que, contrairement ? la caricature qui en est faite, il ne s?agit pas, dans le second cas, de substituer le social ? l?individuel et la pr?vention ? la sanction, mais de les associer.

Or, les explications structurelles sont devenues inaudibles dans les soci?t?s contemporaines, et les gauches de gouvernement semblent les avoir d?laiss?es dans leur rh?torique aussi bien que dans leurs politiques, comme si elles ?taient devenues la marque infamante de leur laxisme. En France, la formule fameuse de Lionel Jospin r?duisant la recherche des causes sociales ? une ? excuse sociologique ? a exprim? de la mani?re la plus claire cet abandon, que son parti semble avoir, depuis lors, ent?rin?. Ainsi, la v?ritable ?volution des deux derni?res d?cennies n?est pas tant l?adoption des th?mes de la droite que le renoncement aux id?es de la gauche.

C?est ce qu?une s?rie de faits r?cents d?montrent, ? commencer par la r?ponse aux d?sordres urbains d?Amiens et l?attitude adopt?e face aux Roms. Dans les deux cas, le gouvernement fait le choix de traiter les effets (destructions de biens publics et priv?s, pour le premier, occupations ill?gales de terrains, pour le second). Il lui est d?autant plus facile de se r?clamer du bon droit de celui qui entend faire respecter la loi que cette s?v?rit? suppos?e juste lui permet de ne pas aborder l?embarrassante question du pourquoi des d?sordres urbains et des campements irr?guliers.

A vrai dire, les causes de ces probl?mes ne sont pas absentes des discours, mais elles sont si vagues, g?n?rales et inaccessibles que leur invocation est rh?torique : on parle du ch?mage et du d?soeuvrement dans les cit?s, d?un c?t?, on mentionne la n?cessaire int?gration europ?enne et la responsabilit? des autorit?s roumaines ou bulgares, de l?autre. Mais qu?en est-il des causes sur lesquelles le pouvoir pourrait agir?

Dans les cit?s, trois d?cennies d??meutes nous ont appris qu?elles sont toujours cons?cutives ? des interactions violentes avec la police, dont les plus tragiques d?bouchent sur la mort de jeunes hommes de milieu populaire et d?origine immigr?e. Bien s?r, il y a des in?galit?s ?conomiques, du sous-emploi, de la pauvret?, de la pr?carit?, et ce sont l? des probl?mes dont souffrent les habitants de ces quartiers et auquel il faut apporter des solutions.

Mais ce n?est pas ce qui explique les d?sordres urbains, dont on sait qu?ils n?ont rien ? voir avec les violences entre bandes rivales ou autour de pratiques mafieuses, comme ? Marseille ou Belleville, avec lesquelles on les amalgame. Ces d?sordres r?sultent du sentiment d?injustice, d?humiliation et d?impuissance ?prouv? par des populations soumises au harc?lement policier, aux vexations et aux discriminations, du seul fait du lieu o? elles r?sident et de l?image qu?on leur associe.

Ce qui est vrai en France l?est aussi ailleurs, en Grande-Bretagne ou aux Etats-Unis notamment. Mais, dans ces deux pays, le pouvoir a mis en place, apr?s de tels ?v?nements, des commissions d?enqu?te qui ont abouti ? des recommandations, en partie suivies. A New York, ? la suite de mobilisations citoyennes et de proc?s intent?s contre les contr?les au faci?s, un changement de politique a conduit ? une diminution d?un tiers des contr?les d?identit?. En France, aucun gouvernement n?a engag? depuis trente ans avec les forces de l?ordre un travail de fond visant ? faire reculer les pratiques d?exception mises en oeuvre dans certains territoires.

S?agissant des gens du voyage en g?n?ral et des Roms en particulier, les rapports minist?riels et parlementaires ?tablissent de mani?re r?currente que la loi qui impose aux communes de plus de 5 000 habitants d?am?nager une aire d?accueil est viol?e par la majorit? d?entre elles, et surtout par celles conduites par des majorit?s de droite. Les pr?fets charg?s de faire respecter cette r?glementation ferment les yeux. Le gouvernement ne d?nonce pas ces pratiques qui conduisent les populations concern?es ? installer sur des terrains vagues leurs campements dont il peut ordonner en toute s?r?nit? la destruction au nom de leur insalubrit? et de leur irr?gularit?. Il annonce m?me que seront expuls?s ceux qui ne peuvent subvenir ? leur existence apr?s trois mois de s?jour tout en maintenant l?essentiel des dispositifs qui les discriminent sur le march? de l?emploi.

La France est l?un des seuls pays occidentaux qui ont fait des questions d?ordre et de s?curit? le coeur de leur d?bat public national. Introduites par l?extr?me droite et reprises par la droite, elles sont devenues pour la gauche d?abord un fardeau dont elle ne savait comment se d?barrasser et d?sormais une ressource qu?elle utilise avec l?espoir de futures victoires ?lectorales. Au moins aurait-on pu s?attendre ? ce qu?elle les traite avec un souci de justice et en s?attaquant aux causes en m?me temps qu?aux effets. Il n?en est rien.

Affirmant qu?il ne fait qu?appliquer la loi, le gouvernement choisit en fait de l?imposer aux seules victimes des in?galit?s, ignorant les manquements lorsqu?ils sont le fait des forces de l?ordre ou des autorit?s municipales. Ce choix lui ali?ne les citoyens qui continuent de croire dans les valeurs de la gauche, mais aussi les policiers et des maires qui s?efforcent de d?fendre, par leurs pratiques, les principes de l??galit? r?publicaine.

More jobs for class of 2013 than class of 2012

By Ben Popken, TODAY contributor

Job prospects for new college grads have been looking pretty bleak, but that trend could be reversing starting this spring.

Employers said they plan on hiring 13 percent more from the class of 2013 than the class of 2012, according to the just-released National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Job Outlook 2013 survey.?

That's good news, considering overall seasonally adjusted unemployment ratesare 8.1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. When you add in into those who have given up looking for work for various reasons, what the BLS calls its ?U-6? measure, that number is even higher, 14.7 percent.?

In another positive sign for new grads, the number of employers saying they had ?firm? plans in place to recruit in the spring is up to 37.6 percent from 34.4 percent last year. Overall recruiting plans are up?slightly as well, from 18.2 percent to 18.6 percent.?

The number of respondents saying they will hire fewer college graduates than last year went down to 8 percent.?That's the lowest percentage in the survey since 2007.?

Brandon Labam, co-founder of Virginia-based ROCS staffing, which specializes in recruiting college and graduate talent, said he's likewise been seeing the number of job listings increase. Additionally, companies are now not just recruiting for revenue-generating positions like sales, but also infrastructure-building administrative roles. That's a sign companies are more willing to invest in long-term growth.?

The appeal of hiring a fresh college graduate is that while they take more training, there's ?a lot more upside if you train them well,? said Labam. ?They don't have bad habits from another job ... you can mold them into the perfect employee.??

But haven't we been hearing how millennial employees are lazy, difficult to manage, need to be coddled, and just play on Twitter all day? Why would employers want more of them??

Labam says he's seeing that sense of ?entitlement? among entry-level candidates from the years past has gone away. No one thinks they're going to get their dream job perfectly tailored to their individual personality handed to them anymore. Graduates now realize they need to demonstrate ?hunger? and ?passion? in the interview room if they're going to get the job. ?It's come back to basics,? he said. ?You can't just be good and from a good school. You've got to work your butt off.??

Besides seeing the attitude shift in the candidates, hiring a new college graduate is an inexpensive way for companies to test the hiring waters. They'll take a lower salary, and be easier to get rid of if the upswing falters.

Are Syrian shells raining biological agents down on Lebanese?

Lebanese living along the Syrian border are reporting rashes and other ailments. They suspect Syrian biological weapons are to blame, although weapons experts say that is unlikely.

By Nicholas Blanford,?Correspondent / September 23, 2012

A man walks past a damaged shop in the border town of Wadi Khaled after mortars from Syrian forces hit villages in northern Lebanon in July.

Roula Naeimeh/Reuters


Nourat al-Tahta, north Lebanon

Residents in Nourat al-Tahta and other villages under routine Syrian shellfire are complaining of unexplained symptoms may indicate artillery shells have been filled with a biological agent, but weapons experts discount the panicky assumptions.

Nazir Shrayteh, a doctor from the nearby village of Dousi, says he has received an unusually large number of patients from villages under shellfire in recent months complaining of rashes and diarrhea.

?Since May we have been getting these skin problems,? he says. ?I don?t know what it is, but I feel something odd is going on.?

Still, biological weapons experts say that the chances are remote that biological agents in Syrian artillery shells are the cause of the ailments. Although T-2 mycotoxins, a chemical produced by certain fungi and used as a biological weapon, are said to cause both symptoms, they are extremely toxic and potentially fatal, says Kelsey Gregg, a former biosecurity specialist with the Federation of American Scientists.

?Even at low doses, there would likely be different symptoms from an?aerosol,?including?eye and respiratory problems,? she says.

Furthermore, the ad hoc pattern of Syrian shellfire does not suggest a determined attempt to deliver biological agents. Ms. Gregg suspects the blame lies with poor sanitary conditions due to the stressful, overcrowded and abnormal circumstances in which the local residents and Syrian refugees are living.

The Nourat al-Tahta residents' case bears some similarity to a recent incident in Afghanistan, when a group of schoolgirls showing symptoms of poisoning raised fears that the Taliban was poisoning the drinking water supplies at several schools. The World Health Organization dismissed the symptoms as more likely a form of mass hysteria ? something that has happened many times in history, the Monitor reported.

Neymar leads Santos to Recopa Sudamericana title

Rio De Janeiro, Sep 27

p>Neymar scored his 46th goal of the year as Santos defeated Universidad de Chile 2-0 to secure their first Recopa Sudamericana title.

The Brazil striker netted with a cool finish in the 27th-minute at Sao Paulo's Pacaembu stadium but wasted a chance to double his tally by missing a penalty just before half-time Wedneday, Xinhua reports.

Defender Bruno Rodrigo secured the win with a 60th-minute header after a Felipe Anderson free-kick.

The result gave Santos a 2-0 aggregate victory after a 0-0 draw in last month's first leg in Chile's capital Santiago.

"I am very happy - this is yet another title," said Neymar, who at 20 already has six trophies to his name.

"I have to thank all of my teammates and our fans who have given us great support."

Neymar also paid tribute to national teammate Paulo Henrique Ganso, who played in the first leg for Santos before joining Sao Paulo last week.

"I am sad that he is not here because he is my brother, but the most important thing is that he is now happy," said Neymar, who has now scored 46 goals from 54 matches in 2012.

"Paulo is a part of this. He did so much for Santos and helped us in the first match (of the final) in Santiago."

The Recopa Sudamericana pits the winners of the previous year's Copa Libertadores against the reigning Copa Sudamericana champions.

'Worst copyright law in history:' Panama set to crack down on piracy ...

Panama's legislature has approved a draconian file sharing law that gives law enforcements free hand to pursue and punish file sharers directly, and grants officials bonuses based on fines levied.

?Proyecto 510-2012 ?On Copyright and Related Rights,? or the 510 Bill, which legal watchdog InfoJustice calls "incredibly unbalanced," was passed in the Panamanian Congress Thursday. It is now awaiting the approval of President Ricardo Martinelli, which could happen in the immediate future.

The bill, which Andres Guadamuz at tech-law blog TechnoLlama called the "worst copyright law in history," was written by Panamanian officials in order to bring the country's Internet regulations into accordance with the US-Panama Trade Promotion Agreement ? but overshoots many of the requirements it's meant to fulfill.

For example, it ascribes copyrighted status to temporary electronic files, like those held in a computer's random access memory (commonly known as RAM). According to InfoJustice, the 510 Bill is unique among national Internet laws in that it does not contain provisions for these so-called "transient" and "incidental" files. This means that users who stream paid-for content through services like Netflix or Pandora could be prosecuted and fined as much as $100,000, or $200,000 for repeat offenders, for having copyrighted material on their computers.

It also gives law enforcement officers incentives to punish file sharers ? over and over, if they see fit ? as the money collected from the fines goes directly to the Panamanian copyright office's bonus pool, with the copyright holder not seeing a dime. ?The funds accrued by the General Copyright Directorate from the fees for the services it provides and the fines imposed in the exercise of its powers, will be aimed at improving its operational infrastructure and to boost the performance of its officers," the law reads.

However, the file sharer could still be liable to civil action should the copyright holder wish to file for it. And if convicted in either case, file sharers could be forced to pay for the publication of a press release noting that they've been fined for piracy.

Do we have homeless children in our area, particularly in the Dublin region?
Do we know how many and what can be done for homeless children?

Cllr. Pat Crimmins


Crisis Intervention Service
Background Information
In the ten Local Health Offices that compromise the former EHRA
(Eastern Health Board) Region the Crisis Intervention Service (CIS)
provides an out of hours emergency social work service to young people
aged under 18 years who are in crisis. The service was established in
1992 and originally responded to young people between the ages of 12
and 18 years. Since 2005 the CIS was expanded to include all children
up to the age of 18 years.

The service is compromised of:

- A day Social Work Team.

- An Emergency Social Work Service which is available from Monday to
Sunday between 6.00p.m. and 6.00a.m. and each Saturday/Sunday and
Public Holiday from 9.00a.m. to 5.00p.m. all year round.

- A Night Reception Centre which is provided in Lefroy House for young
people who regularly present to the Out of Hours service. The service
is available from 5.00p.m. to 11.00p.m. and provides one to one
support with meals and showers for young people. This service is also
available to young people who are not availing of the Out of Hours

- Emergency Foster Care Families who are available to provide a place
of safety as required for three nights for children under the age of
12 years of age.

- Seven emergency residential beds available on a night by night basis
at Lefroy House, Eden Quay for young people aged between 12 to 17
years of age.

- One emergency residential bed available on a night by night basis at
Sherrard House Residential Unit, North Circular Road for young girls
aged between 12 to 17 years of age.

- Four emergency beds available for a period of two weeks with CIS
designated Foster Care/Supported Lodgings for young people aged
between 12 to 17 years of age.

- The Crisis Intervention Service Partnership (CISP) which is an
Outreach Service in partnership between the Health Service Executive
and Focus Ireland. It was developed to ensure that there is a
comprehensive range of services available to support young people out
of home or availing of emergency accommodation. The CISP team is
available 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. The Partnership works
with the local area social work teams to monitor the risk and welfare
of the young person while out of home. The Partnership is the internal
co-ordinator within the CIS services to ensure that there is overall
capacity within the service so that it can respond to ongoing demands.
The service works up individual plans with each young person designed
to ensure their welfare is being monitored, and that they are linked
with the appropriate supports. The service works closely with Focus
Ireland Outreach to provide out of hours supports pending placement in
emergency accommodation.

Referrals are received to the Crisis Intervention Service by telephone
from service providers working at night, for example An Garda
Siochana, Hospitals, Ambulance Services. Referrals are accepted in
relation to:

-? Concerns regarding the immediate welfare of children.

-? Young people in crisis seeking emergency accommodation.

- Young people who are identified by the Garda National Immigration
Bureau as separated children seeking asylum.

The Out of Hours is an intervention service and provides an emergency
response at night. All details of contacts with children are passed to
the local social work team by the start of the working day. The local
social work team are the case managers and will follow up on any
further assessments or interventions necessary.

The remit of the Crisis Intervention Service is to respond to crisis
situations whereby a child or young person requires immediate
placement, either due to child protection concerns, where there is a
breakdown in family relationships, placement breakdowns or due to
accommodation issues. CIS aims to prevent children or young people
from having to access emergency care unnecessarily. Where it is
appropriate, CIS tries to place children or young people with
alternative family members or friends or mediate between
children/young people and parents where there is a breakdown in family
relations. The Crisis Intervention Service put a significant amount of
effort into ensuring that placing a child or young person within
emergency residential units or foster care is a last resort.

Summary of Admissions to Crisis Intervention Service 2011
During the year 2011, the total number of children who were
accommodated in CIS emergency placements was 288. This figure relates
to 109 children aged 12 years and under and 179 young people aged

- The young person is in need of immediate accommodation on the night
due to the parent/guardian?s decision not to let them return to their
home; so technically while are they are in need of emergency
accommodation, the young person and their parents are not presenting
as ?homeless? as their parents/guardians have a place of residency,
but are refusing access to their child. The CIS is clear that when
young people are presenting in such circumstances or where the primary
referral reason is that they are in need of accommodation due to other
factors that are not related to being ?homeless? they are classified
as either ?seeking accommodation? or ?family relationship breakdown?.

- The CIS is aware that the referencing of young people as ?seeking
accommodation? due to relationship/placement breakdowns is open to
differential interpretation.

- Where there is a young person whose primary reason for referral to
CIS is because they and their parents/guardians are homeless; they
have no accommodation or home address, then they are classified as
homeless in CIS statistics.

- No children aged 12 years of age and under have been referred to the
CIS during 2011 and so far during 2012 due to homelessness
