Bell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo shot to death at home by his wife, authorities say
Bell Gardens Mayor Daniel Crespo died Tuesday after his wife, Levette, shot him several times during a domestic dispute, Sheriff’s Department officials told The Times.

Crespo, 45, was shot about 2:30 p.m. at his home in the 6300 block of Gage Avenue in the Vinas La Campana complex during an argument with his wife, 43, and his 19-year-old son, said Nicole Nishida, Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman.

An altercation began with Crespo and his wife in the master bedroom, during which his son, Daniel, intervened, Nishida said. While father and son were fighting, Crespo’s wife got a gun and shot Crespo, Nishida said.

Crespo died en route to a hospital, Bell Gardens Fire Department officials confirmed.

Crespo’s wife is in custody in the shooting.

Crespo son was taken to a hospital for injuries to his face from the struggle and was then questioned by authorities, according to sheriffs officials.

Residents say that Crespo and his family have lived there for years.

State lawmakers said they were shocked and devastated by the news of Crespo’s death.

State Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) and state Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens) released a joint statement Tuesday night, saying that “as representatives and residents of Bell Gardens,” the shooting death of Crespo “is shocking and a tremendous loss for our close-knit community. Mayor Crespo was a respected public servant who dedicated his life to protecting and helping others in southeast Los Angeles and throughout the region.”

The incident comes a year after Crespo and several other council members were the subject of threats posted on Facebook. According to an article published at the time by EGP News, the City Council decided to cancel a public meeting because of the threats.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Crespo was a teenager when he married his high school sweetheart in 1986, according to the Bell Gardens website. The couple moved to Bell Gardens, and they had a daughter in 1987 and a son in 1994, the website says.

Crespo was first elected to the City Council in 2001 and worked as a Los Angeles County probation officer for more than a decade, a job he continued to hold after becoming mayor last year, according to the city.

Pro-democracy protesters have again urged Hong Kong’s leader to step down saying he will be condemned by history, as huge crowds continue to bring parts of the territory to a standstill.

On Monday night, tens of thousands blocked streets, singing and chanting.

The protesters want Beijing to give Hong Kong a free vote for its next leader, something Beijing has rejected.

By Tuesday streets were relatively quiet but crowds are expected to swell for the eve of Chinese National Day.

Over the weekend police used tear gas and pepper spray, but riot police have since been withdrawn and protesters remain calm.

China has described the demonstrations as illegal and urged the Hong Kong government to bring them under control. News of the protests is being heavily censored in mainland China.

In the US, a White House spokesman urged Hong Kong authorities to “exercise restraint” and protesters to “express their views peacefully”.

‘Condemned by history’

The protesters are a mix of student protesters and supporters of the pro-democracy Occupy Central group, which has been promising a sit-in at Hong Kong’s financial hub for months.

Numbers have swelled amid some public anger over perceived heavy-handed policing of weekend protests.

In its latest statement, Occupy Central accused the government of “delay tactics” after it said it would postpone consultations on electoral reform.

Beijing ruled last month that while Hong Kong people can elect their next leader, their choice of candidates will be restricted to two or three approved by a pro-Beijing committee.

Thousands of pro-democracy protesters spent the night on the street near Admiralty in Hong Kong’s Central district. Some were propped up against barricades, others stretched out in the middle of a major road.

After a strong show last night the crowds have trickled out this morning as people go to work or home to take care of household chores. But they say they will be back tonight when numbers are expected to swell. This has been the routine now for two days. The crowds diminish in the day but return in full force in the evening and stay the night.

The morning is being spent mostly removing rubbish left over from last night’s huge crowd. Students are picking up cigarette butts and plastic bottles, others are distributing breakfast buns. That is why those on the street are being called “the politest protesters” by some on social media.

But they are on edge. At one point in the middle of the night everyone suddenly stood up and started pulling on masks. It turned out to be just a changing of the guard for the handful of police scattered around here, but the sudden fear was palpable.

Grey line

In Hong Kong, further consultations had been due to take place on the ruling but on Monday a senior official said these would be postponed until a “better time”.

In its statement, Occupy said it believed the government was “just hoping people’s desire for genuine universal suffrage to fade out over time”.

Occupy also repeated calls for Mr Leung’s resignation, saying he would be “condemned by the history of democratic development in Hong Kong”.

At the moment protesters have been blocking roads in at least three parts of the territory. Schools have been closed, bus routes diverted and transport disrupted. Some banks have suspended operations in affected areas.

As dawn broke numbers had dwindled as some headed for work or school. But Wednesday marks Chinese National Day – a holiday – and most expect more crowds out on Hong Kong’s streets this evening.

In other developments:

  • A man was arrested after he drove his car at protesters in Mong Kok in the early hours of Tuesday. No reason was given for the incident
  • On Monday, the British government called for the right to protest to be protected and for protesters to exercise their right within the law

The BBC’s Martin Yip filmed a day in the life of some Hong Kong protesters

Not everyone backs the protests, however. Some fear the ongoing demonstrations could affect Hong Kong’s relationship with Beijing or hit the economy of the financial hub.

In mainland China, media have blamed “radical opposition forces” for stirring up trouble.

Analysts say Communist Party leaders in Beijing are worried that calls for democracy could spread to cities on the mainland, putting them in a very difficult position.

Britain handed Hong Kong back to China in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” formula that guarantees liberties not seen on the mainland, including freedom of speech and the right to protest.

Hong Kong democracy timeline

  • 1997: Hong Kong, a former British colony, is handed back to China under an 1984 agreement giving it “a high degree of autonomy, except in foreign and defence affairs” for 50 years
  • 2004: China rules that its approval must be sought for changes to Hong Kong’s election laws
  • June-July 2014: Pro-democracy activists hold an unofficial referendum on political reform and a large rally. This is followed by protests by pro-Beijing activists
  • 31 August 2014: China says it will allow direct elections in 2017, but voters will only be able to choose from a list of pre-approved candidates. Activists stage protests
  • 22 September 2014: Student groups launch a week-long boycott of classes in protest
  • 2017: Direct elections for chief executive due to take place
  • 2047: Expiry of current agreements

An executive at an Oklahoma food processing plant is being hailed as a hero after he used his training as a reserve deputy sheriff to shoot a violent attacker.

The alleged attacker, Alton Nolen, was fired from his job at Vaughan Foods outside of Oklahoma City on Thursday afternoon and went directly from the human resources office to the front office where he started attacking two female employees, police said. He had already beheaded one woman and stabbed the second victim multiple times when Mark Vaughan, the company’s COO, shot him, police said.

“Mark put an end to the threat by shooting the suspect and saving the life of a second victim who was being actively attacked by the suspect,” Oklahoma County Sheriff John Whetsel said in a statement released today.

“There is every reason to believe that the lives of untold others were saved who would have been targeted by the suspect if it hadn’t been for Deputy Vaughan’s actions,” he said.

Authorities confirmed that Vaughan has been involved with the sheriff’s office since 2010 and took a 10 month training course to be certified as a reserve deputy. He is a member of the patrol division, the Fast Action Support Team and the tactical team, Whetsel said.

“Mark Vaughan is an example of just how significant these men and women are to our citizens,” Whetsel said in a statement. “Yesterday lives were saved and a criminal threat ended by the quick and unselfish response of Mark Vaughan.”

Nolen has not been formally charged in the incident but has been named by Moore Police Department officials as the individual who beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54. He was stabbing Traci Johnson, 43, when Vaughan shot him.

“This was not going to stop if he didn’t stop it,” Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said of Vaughan at a news conference today. “It could have gotten a lot worse.”

Meet the busiest Aussie model

Cheyenne Tozzi is very busy these days. Source: Supplied

COULD Shire-born star Cheyenne Tozzi fit anymore on her business plate?

The sensational Cronulla born beauty has just been announced as the ambassador for Jergens — which just happens to be the Number 1 body moisturiser in the US.

At last count, Cheyenne was the Face of Westfield Miranda; the face of Wanted Shoes; a model mentor on Foxtel’s Australia’s Next Top Model; a co-mentor on The Face; part of the Macleans and Ford EcoSport Urban Discoveries campaigns; has a collaborative design range with KissKill Lingerie. Oh, and she has shot with international brands Marks & Spencer, and Gina Tricot.

Not forgetting her brilliant singing talent with her music collaboration van Hoorn.

Could she just do a little bit more?

The more they learn about Facebook, the more some people are turned off by the social networking site and its practices. But Ello shuns a good deal of what turns users against Facebook, promising no ads and hefty privacy compared to Mark Zuckerberg’s site.

Paul Budnitz created and designed Ello, a social networking site that uses an invite-only strategy, at least for right now. Ello’s exclusivity is likely the big factor driving some of the site’s rising demand, but its privacy approach — the social network vows it will never sell user data to anyone and it seeks to operate without shoving sponsored ads in front of its users’ eyeballs — is what may make users big fans in the long run.

“Virtually every other social network is run by and for advertisers,” says Ello. “Behind the scenes, armies of ad salesmen and data miners track and record every move you make. Data about you is auctioned off to advertisers and data brokers. Under the guise of offering a free service, users of other social networks pay a high price in lack of privacy and intrusive advertising.”

Ello was originally a private network, but demand prompted Budnitz and company to open the site up to the general public. Ello says it does collect some data from users but it employs a randomizer so that it can get the information it needs to make its site better without compromising the users’ privacy.

“This information is anonymous and aggregated. Before information about you is stored on the Google servers, your IP address is stripped and anonymized,” says Ello. “This means that it is very difficult for anyone (including Ello and Google) to trace the data that Google stores back to any one user. We can see how people are using Ello in general, but not what you are doing in particular.”

If Ello’s randomizer isn’t enough, the company says users can opt out of sharing information all together. “We’re cool with that” says Ello.

Some of Ello’s many features include basic commenting, @-style mentions, user discovery, views per post, streaming notifications, Emoji integration, image compression, follow and unfollow. Ello says it plans to release user blocking, flagging, Soundcloud integration, private account, multimedia commenting, a notification center, a bookmarking stream, mobile apps and more.

With Facebook continuing to expanding its advertising revenue and its ability to absorb more, Ello may have come just in time for some longtime users of Zuckerberg’s site.

“When a network is run for advertisers, the advertiser is really the customer,” Mr. Budnitz said. “That really goes against what a social network is. When you’re putting up artwork, or something you wrote or created, and there’s an add for underwear, it conflicts in a violating way.”

New Videos Show U.S. Attacks on ISIS Targets

PHOTOS of a female fighter pilot who led the United Arab Emirates air strikes on Syria have sent the internet into a spin, with many praising it as an epic display of girl power.

Major Mariam Al Mansouri is the first female air force pilot from the United Arab Emirates.

The 35-year-old commands a squadron of F-16 jets which led coordinated attacks on ISIS targets in Iraq in Syria this week conducted by the US and five other Arab nations.

Major Al Mansouri is said to have dreamt of being a pilot since she was a teenager but had to bide her time working in General Command until the air force opened the door to female recruits, The National reports.

She was the first to join and has since won the Pride of the Emirates Medal and is said to be excellent at her job where no distinction is made between men and women.

The Major is one of eight children who said she focused on “competing with herself” to improve her skills.

After Fox News confirmed it was a female fighter pilot at the helm, pictures of her have been circulating online with people praising her involvement and even proposing marriage.

Bulletproof: Dave Asprey has made an empire touting the art and science of ‘biohacking’.

HE SLEEPS five hours a night, has lost 45 kilograms and claims to have raised his IQ 12 points. Each morning begins with black coffee and a stick of butter and he pops prescription medication for its anti-ageing properties.

Welcome to the world of Dave Asprey, a.k.a. The Bulletproof Executive who is spearheading a new breed of biohackers — a group obsessed with making yourself faster, smarter and stronger through a combination of caveman diets and the latest in modern technology.

MORE: Aussie workers using real-life ‘limitless’

It’s an extreme version of the paleo-eating, lactose-free, jawbone-wearing lifestyle that is gaining followers as people seek to take advantage of new technology and become a more ultimate version of themselves. But aspects of the trend have doctors and health experts worried it could be doing permanent damage.

“The high tech boom is boring compared to what’s happening with biohacking,” Mr Asprey told news.com.au from over the phone in California.

“Biohacking is the art and scene of taking control of your own biology. You do that by taking the environment around you and inside you.”

He’s in Los Angeles to host the second annual Bulletproof Biohacking Conferencethis weekend billed as a chance for ordinary people to “feel the future of biohacking technologies”.

It includes everything from doctors offering intravenous vitamin injections to lung pumps and a device designed to terrify people into a state of “flow” — the mental state achieved by elite athletes when they get in the zone.

Mr Asprey got hooked on the idea after running his own software company left him rich but unhappy. He tipped the scales at 130kg and wandered around in a “brain fog” each day.

He poured $300,000 into hacking his own body and now runs an empire touting everything from his own coffee and supplements to followers.

Some of the more bizarre products on offer include powerlung respirators to make ordinary people breathe like elite athletes and body vibration plates his website claims were invented by Russian cosmonauts, designed to help people find the mental and physical state.

“The old way is to do what you’re doing more, the new way is to get data and do what actually works. So many people do things that don’t work and keep doing them over and over because they haven’t taken control. They haven’t had technology to train themselves to do things in a much faster way,” Mr Asprey said.

His typical days begin with a sleep report via email detailing his heart rate, temperature and movement overnight, followed by half a litre of “bulletproof coffee” and a high-fat diet with vegetables and protein.

“I don’t pay attention to food (around him), that’s kind of liberating for me. I don’t notice bagels; the juiciest piece of bacon and I still don’t want it, I’m actually satifisied. As a guy who weighed 300 pounds that’s huge,” he said.

A controversial part of his repertoire includes taking prescription drugs like Metformin (used for diabetes patients) and Providgil (for narcoleptics) to boost his brain power and stay focused — something definitely not recommended by health professionals.

The philosophy is gaining ground in Australia. OptimOz director Leon Wurfel distributes biohacking products to around 5000 customers here and said he sees the community growing into the “next big thing.”

“I don’t know if we’ve reached peak paleo yet but I think biohacking is going to be the next big thing,” he said.

“Bodybuilders go to gym and take supplements, but the way I think about biohacking is it’s for the nerds. Nerds are trying to take over the world, taking all these supplements to try and boost their performance.”

Mr Wurfel, who got into biohacking after breaking his collarbone and earning the nickname “powergut”, said the combination of diet and drugs have helped him transform from a disgruntled employee to someone running his own company.

“You have to jump through some pretty dodgy hoops to get [the drugs] but it keeps you firing on all cylinders,” he said.

Doctors have warned of the danger of such an approach, saying taking drugs that haven’t been prescribed for you is never a good idea.

Royal Australian College of General Practitioners President Dr Liz Marles said prescription drugs are controlled for a reason and whoever prescribes them needs to understand biology intimately.

“When we prescribe, what we’re doing is weighing up benefits versus risks. Obviously if you’re sick and you’ve got diabetes then the benefits can outweigh the risks but if you’re basically well and you’re doing it for other purposes it doesn’t take much for that equation to change.”

She said Metfromin can lead to problems in those that have trouble with kidney functions and people should never take drugs unless it is prescribed for them.

“Having that evidence allows us as doctors to know what circumstances are safe or not. I don’t think any individual can really be certain it won’t cause them problems down the track.

The Mediterranean diet is still the best way to lose weight according to one nutritionist

Nutritionist Susie Burrell also said there is no conclusive research that shows high fat diets are good for long-term health and it’s important to consider how sustainable something is before embarking on a new regime.

“The most simple diet is one that is reducing carbohydrates to compensate for our sedentary lifestyle with more fresh fruit and vegetables, similar to a Mediterranean diet,”she said.

“The basic premise is 7-10 serves of fresh fruit and veg a day, a small amount of whole grains … and lots of lean protein, white fish, a small about of plain dairy and really focused on the good fats. It contains very little processed food.”

Ms Burrell also said when it comes to life-logging, apps and ways to measure sleep, calories and exercise can be useful, but don’t let it take over your life.

“I think the more awareness individuals have about their behaviours the better, as long as it doesn’t tip into obsession. As a tool to keep an eye on mindless behaviour they can be very helpful.”
