The death toll has risen to five in the stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair in which 45 people were also injured.

The main stage collapsed on a crowd waiting for a Sugarland performance Saturday night at the Indianapolis fair after being blasted by winds as strong as 60 to 70 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

The lead singer of the country band, Jennifer Nettles, expressed her horror in a statement to Associated Press, saying there were “no words to process a moment of this magnitude and gravity.”

The victims were identified by the Marion County coroner’s office as Tammy Vandam, 42, of Wanatah; Glenn Goodrich, 49, of Indianapolis; Alina Bigjohny, 23, of Fort Wayne; Christina Santiago, 29, of Chicago; and Nathan Byrd, 51, of Indianapolis, who died overnight.

WRTV Indianapolis reported Sunday that the number of injured had climbed to 45. The fair was shut down Sunday in the aftermath of the accident.

The accident, which occurred at about 9 p.m. Saturday, unfolded in a dramatic scene captured on a YouTube video. The towering stage equipment tumbled forward onto fans against a backdrop of darkened skies, a massive dust storm and gusty winds.

One woman could be heard saying, “Oh my God, oh my God!”

“It was like it was in slow motion,” concertgoer Amy Weathers told the Indianapolis Star. “You couldn’t believe it was actually happening.”

At local hospitals, triage and family reunification rooms were set up. Shortly after the accident, Sugarland said on Twitter: “We are all right. We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you will join us. They need our strength.”

In the chaos afterward, scores of concertgoers rushed to the stage to lift broken scaffolding and equipment off people.

“People put themselves in jeopardy…and it’s gratifying to know that at a moment’s notice people will jump in to help others,” said Indiana State Police Sgt. Rich Myers.

No one was performing at the time of the collapse.The opening act had finished, and the crowd was waiting for Sugarland to take the stage. At the same time, the weather was worsening; there had been heavy rain and winds were picking up. State police were monitoring radar weather reports on their smartphones.

They had just decided to evacuate the grandstands and were putting officials in place to carry out the plan. But it wasn’t fast enough.

San Francisco

August 9, 2011

Mayor Ed Lee, who in January promised to fill out his predecessor’s term as a caretaker and swore off aspirations to run for the job this fall, on Monday announced plans to enter the race, upending a crowded political field.Surrounded by a media crush, Lee requested filing papers at the city’s election department before emerging to answer questions about broken promises that will probably shadow him throughout the campaign.The former tenants-rights activist turned city administrator said he only recently had reversed his position, persuaded by many residents and some elected officials that he owed it to the city to press ahead in his trademark cooperative style.

“We’ve changed the tone of government,” said Lee, 59, flanked by his family. “I really feel good about it, and I don’t want to let it go.”

Lee said that when the Board of Supervisors named him to the seat vacated by now-Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, he had no intention of seeking election. His pledge to stay above the fray was a key condition for a slim majority vote of the former board and a unanimous vote of the newly seated one that placed him in office. Four of the former and current officials who backed Lee are running for mayor. Among them is board President David Chiu. “Make no mistake, I am disappointed that he broke his promise to San Franciscans not to run for office,” Chiu wrote in a message to supporters Monday. “But it will ultimately be up to the voters to judge the character, vision and record of those who want to lead our city for the next four years.”

Lee’s drama-free approach to problem-solving has proved a marked contrast to the contentious battles between moderates and progressives that have plagued recent administrations in San Francisco’s liberal landscape. The political theater has at times paralyzed the business of governing.

But Lee on Monday cited a host of achievements this year that resulted, he said, from his “deliberate effort to reach out” to all constituents and colleagues. Among them:

Persuading Twitter and other tech companies to maintain a corporate presence in the city, promoting a local-hire rule, shepherding passage of a balanced budget despite inheriting a $380-million deficit, hiring a popular police chief, negotiating a pension reform proposal and securing the America’s Cup sailing race.

“I have been part of changing the way city government is run, and I have been striving to do this for 21 years,” said Lee, who is of Chinese descent and the city’s first Asian American mayor. “Things have changed at City Hall over the past seven months, and because of that, I’ve changed my mind.”

Lee credited Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for helping persuade him that San Francisco needed his continued steady hand. She became the city’s last interim mayor after the 1978 assassination of George Moscone, an appointment that catapulted her into two elected terms as mayor and then national politics.

But critics and a number of political experts said that the act of entering the November race would instantly tarnish Lee’s image.

One citizen struggled as he was ushered out of the elections office Monday after demanding that Lee step down for filing his papers “under false pretenses.” Chiu, meanwhile, told KQED-FM (88.5) radio that the interim mayor’s decision “will certainly have an impact on our working relationship moving forward, about what we’re able to trust in what he says.”

Three separate efforts to persuade Lee to run were launched in recent months.

Progress for All, the group behind the polished “Run Ed Run” campaign, was the subject of a previously scheduled policy discussion Monday by the city’s ethics commission. At issue is whether the group is an independent expenditure committee working on behalf of a candidate, which would mean it skirted a $500 per-contributor cap. Its founder has argued that because there was no candidate, the group was more akin to a political action committee. If Lee or anyone involved in his campaign authorized or assisted the committee, that would be improper collusion, the ethics director has said.

The San Francisco Chronicle has reported that Progress for All’s small group of donors is closely allied with either former Mayor Willie Brown or Chinatown power broker Rose Pak — both long criticized for a backroom-dealing style of politics. Brown and Pak were key to talking Lee into taking the interim post.

“Ed Lee told us he didn’t want to be interim mayor. But powerful people insisted he do it, so he did. Then Ed Lee told us he didn’t want to run for mayor. But powerful people insisted he run,” City Atty. Dennis Herrera, who also is running for mayor, said in a statement. “To my mind, Ed Lee’s biggest problem isn’t that he’s a dishonest man — it’s that he’s not his own man.”

Though Lee said he enjoyed the “Run Ed Run” posters that caricatured his bushy mustache, he insisted Monday that he was not in any way allied with the campaign.

“I will not change the way I do business,” he said. “I will continue to be Ed Lee, reaching out and cracking my sorry jokes.

David Leigh

8/4/11 at 7:11 PM

Guardian investigations editor David Leigh, a senior member of the team that uncovered the News of the World hacking scandal, himself admitted to hacking voicemails and other ethically dodgy journalistic practices in the pages of his very own newspaper.

“The trick was a simple one: the businessman in question had inadvertently left his pin code on a print-out and all that was needed was to dial straight into his voicemail,” he wrote in 2006. “There is certainly a voyeuristic thrill in hearing another person’s private messages.”

A Guardian spokeswoman told the UK free paper Metro: “The Guardian does not and has not authorised phone hacking.”

Leigh’s article was written after the arrest of Clive Goodman, the royal editor of the News of the World who served four months in jail for voicemail hacking and has been re-arrested during the current inquiry. Leigh said that deceptive methods like phone hacking were sometimes defensible if they are “clearly in the public interest.”

Unlike Goodman, I was not interested in witless tittle-tattle about the royal family. I was looking for evidence of bribery and corruption. And unlike the News of the World, I was not paying a private detective to routinely help me with circulation-boosting snippets. I think the rule should be that deceptions, lies and stings should only be used as a last resort, and only when it is clearly in the public interest. And, as for actually breaking the law? Well, it is hard to keep on the right side of legality on all occasions.

That kind of nuanced moral argument is unlikely to win over many people in Britain given the current climate of outrage. Leigh’s disclosure might be the biggest boon for Rupert Murdoch since a certain pie-thrower got a beat down.

CLOTHES CALL: Malinda Knowles says a pilot and supervisor accused her of not wearing pants.

2:20 AM, July 22, 2011

A Manhattan financial consultant was kicked off a JetBlue flight at JFK Airport because the pilot mistakenly thought she wasn’t wearing pants or shorts, according to her lawsuit.

Malinda Knowles, 27, said she had already boarded the Florida-bound jet when supervisor approached her and “slapped his walkie-talkie in between [my] legs” and smacked them with the antenna, according to documents filed against the airline yesterday in Queens Supreme Court.

“It was humiliating, degrading, and highly inappropriate,” the Harlem woman said. “I . . . got his name. I didn’t want to show him my crotch.”

Knowles says her 6 a.m. flight for West Palm Beach was set to take off on July 13, 2010, when she was approached by Victor Rodriguez.

“I was sitting on the plane with my orange juice, minding my business, when he said, ‘I don’t want to see your panties, but do you have any on?’ ” she recalled. “He was very vulgar. I didn’t want to show him anything. He asked me to come off the plane, but I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.”

Cops escorted her to a hangar area where they confirmed she was wearing shorts and put her back on the flight, according to the suit, which seeks an unspecified amount.

“If the police come on a flight, everybody thinks you have a bomb,” she said.

But the pilot, James Ewart, apparently wasn’t satisfied and booted her off again, the court papers charge.

Her lawyer, Brian Dratch, called the incident “outrageous.”

JetBlue declined to comment.

Barrett, who escaped from a Florida prison in 1979 while serving a life sentence for murder, was arrested Wednesday outside the town of Montrose, Colo. (AP Photo)

Wednesday, July 27, 2011 2:41 PM MDT

He laid low for 32 years – 17 of them in Montrose County – but murder convict Frederick Barrett’s run came to an end this morning.

Barrett had been living here since 1994, under the name Neil Richard Meltzer, after having escaped from Union Correctional Facility in Raiford, Fla. on Aug. 17, 1979.

The escape was his third, Montrose County Sheriff Rick Dunlap said.

Montrose County Sheriff’s Office investigators, with the U.S. Marshals and the U.S. Forest Service’s law enforcement division, surrounded the Florida fugitive’s remote county home, off Divide Road, at about 4:30 a.m.

They posed as Forest Service fire officers and asked to speak with him about fire safety, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. The ruse enabled deputy marshals to take note of Barrett’s tattoos and establish preliminary identification.

They arrested him without incident outside the residence at about 7 a.m.

Authorities also recovered five weapons from inside the home, and found a small marijuana grow.

Barrett was serving a life sentence for the 1971 murder of Carl Ardolino. He killed Ardolino by drowning him in a ditch after attacking him in his car, with the help of a man identified as Michael Owensby, said Ken Deal, Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal for the District of Colorado.

Barrett escaped prison in 1975, and was recaptured in 1976. He escaped again in 1977, and was recaptured that same year, according to Deputy U.S. Marshal Ron Lindbak of the Tampa Division.

He escaped in 1979 by going over a perimeter fence during a power outage, Deal said.

The U.S. Marshals cold case division tracked him here. They alerted Dunlap earlier this year to the possibility that Barrett was in the area, and again contacted Dunlap a few days ago for assistance in the apprehension.

Barrett is jailed in Montrose, pending extradition to Florida.

9:35 a.m. CDT, July 24, 2011

Justin Howard left it all on stage Saturday night – including some of his own blood – before being crowned America’s top air guitarist.

The 27-year-old Chicago resident rocked Metro and the panel of judges at the U.S. Air Guitar National Finals, beating nearly two dozen of the country’s top air rockers for the right to represent the United States at next month’s 16th annual Air Guitar World Championships in Oulu, Finland, where he will battle champions from more than 20 other countries.

A four-time winner of the Chicago regional championship, Howard – known on stage as Nordic Thunder – unleashed his signature bare-knee power slide in Saturday’s final round, shredding his knees and feet as well as his imaginary instrument.

“My power move is my knee slide,” said Howard, who lives in Ukrainian Village and works as a video editor for Rotary International in Evanston when he’s not sliding across a stage in a loincloth made of leather and hair weaves, his long, black hair flying behind him. “Pain is temporary. Air guitar is forever. I live by that motto, and it paid off tonight.”

While some air rockers rely on flashy routines and death-defying stunts to wow the crowd, Howard said he knew his familiar knee slide would likely bring down the house Saturday.

“I showed people that you can win an air guitar contest at a national level without having to climb speaker towers or do back flips,” he said. “I stayed true to my style and just played my air guitar and it worked out.”

Chicago has become an undeniable force in the world of air guitar. Not only did the city host the national finals for the first time Saturday, but five of the finalists were from the city, including last year’s national champion, Romeo DanceCheetah – otherwise known as Matt Cornelison, 29, a video producer from Wicker Park.

There will be room for a new champion next year, however. Just moments after winning his title Saturday, Howard said he plans to retire from competitive air guitar after the world championships.

“I think that the air guitar (world) title needs to be here,” he said. “I want to bring it home and hang up the leathers and be done with competing.”

20 (t is the 20th letter of the alphabet) + 19 (i is the 19th letter of the alphabet) + 14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) = 43

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four he has the number 43 going on.

43 = Entertainer.  Entertaining.  Having fun.  Celebrating.  Congratulations.

Natasha MacBryde

11:14pm UK, Thursday July 21, 2011

Lisa Dowd, Midlands correspondent

A teenage schoolgirl who died after throwing herself under a train received a “gratuitously abusive” message on a social networking site just before her death.

The body of 15-year-old Natasha MacBryde was discovered on Valentine’s Day, on a railway line just 150 yards away from her home near Bromsgrove.

The jury at the inquest into Natasha’s death heard the message, posted anonymously on website ‘Formspring’, contained a number of swear words.

It read: “You think you are pretty and all the girls love you, it’s called acting. Start acting nicer to people or you will lose everyone. Mark my words”.

Natasha replied: “Who are you?”

The inquest heard Natasha had also had a dispute that evening with a friend on Facebook, and received a text from a boy she liked saying they “should just stay friends”.

 

We seek to understand the motivation of those who choose to send spiteful and vindictive messages to their peers.

MacBryde family statement

 

Natasha had also been searching on the internet for “easiest ways to jump in front of a train”, shortly before her death.

Her mother, Jane, who is separated from Natasha’s father, said her daughter would print out lyrics of songs and put them on her bedroom wall.

One song, Bruno Mars’ Grenade contained the line “I’d jump in front of a train for you”.

In a statement, her family said: “We believe that the evocative lyrics of one of her favourite songs, Grenade by Bruno Mars, coupled with access to certain websites suggesting such actions, caused her to make such a sudden drastic and uncharacteristic decision.

“The family believes that the anonymous postings on the ‘Formspring’ social networking site were a significant contributor to the events on Sunday, February 13, and we seek to understand the motivation of those who choose to send spiteful and vindictive messages to their peers.”

Jane MacBryde told the court how Natasha was part of a popular group of girls at a private grammar school in Worcester who called themselves ‘The Ten’.

A few weeks before her death she had returned from school in tears, saying she had no friends and wanted to swap schools.

After contacting the school her mother thought the situation had blown over.

She said Natasha had shown her “gratuitously abusive” messages about herself on ‘Formspring’ and had told her daughter not to go on the site.

Jane MacBryde said it was a website where “children can leave anonymous comments about each other”.

During the hearing at the court in Stourport-on-Severn, coroner Geraint Williams explained that following Natasha’s death fake Facebook profiles were set up by a person who did not know the teenager.

Williams said “foul and disgusting” comments were posted about her death causing great upset to her family.

He said the “vile” practice is known as “trolling” and added that said the perpetrator had been caught and prosecuted.

“If I had my way, he’d be here so we could deal with him as well,” he said.

After the jury returned a verdict of suicide, Natasha’s parents, Andrew and Jane, paid tribute to her.

“As a family, we continue to deal daily with the impact that the terrible loss of Tasha has had on all of our lives,” they said.

“She was a bright and beautiful girl whose smile and sparkle lit up not only our world, but also that of her friends and all who knew her.

“Beyond this loss, the struggle to understand why she took such a devastating path has made the pain even more difficult to bear.”

An off-duty Marin County sheriff’s deputy who interceded in a domestic dispute involving a friend in Petaluma was shot and killed early Tuesday by a parolee, who was then shot dead, authorities said.

Deputy Jim Mathiesen, 49, a nine-year department veteran assigned the Marin County jail, was shot shortly after midnight by Thomas Edwin Halloran, 28, on the 800 block of Liberty Road in Petaluma, said Sonoma County Assistant Sheriff Lorenzo Duenas.

Mathiesen had been called to the home by Halloran’s 22-year-old ex-girlfriend, who along with her family was close friends with the deputy, Duenas said.

Mathiesen, who lived in Petaluma, leaves behind a wife and two children.

“This is tragic news,” said Marin County Sheriff Bob Doyle. “Jim died trying to help others. He was known for his kindness and his helpful nature.”

Mathiesen “was trying to help out, as any deputy sheriff or officer would do, and it ended up in a real tragic situation,” Duenas said.

Mathiesen arrived at the home at about 11:30 p.m. and was told that Halloran, whose relationship with his girlfriend had recently ended after three months, had been texting death threats to the woman and her family, Duenas said.

The woman did not have a restraining order against Mathiesen, authorities said.

About 20 minutes after Mathiesen arrived at his friend’s home, Halloran showed up. The deputy went outside and was asking him to leave when Halloran pulled out a handgun and shot Mathiesen twice in the chest, Duenas said.

Mathiesen was unarmed, authorities said.

Halloran then took his ex-girlfriend’s mother hostage, threatening to shoot her if he did not find the woman, Duenas said.

Halloran forced her into a garage and was trying to put her in a car when the ex-girlfriend’s brother shot him twice, Duenas said.

Both Halloran and Mathiesen died at the scene. The names of the family members involved were not released.

Halloran was on parole for making threats and had numerous arrests in Marin and Sonoma counties. In 2008, he was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill a previous girlfriend in Petaluma, authorities said. He had also served as a confidential drug informant for a Marin County task force.

On his Facebook page, Halloran changed his status from “in a relationship” to “single” on July 9. On Friday, he wrote, “Time to relax and enjoy the single life staying single forever.”

July 18, 2011 3:22 p.m. EDT

A Florida teen bludgeoned his parents to death with a hammer, stashed their bodies in a bedroom, then hosted dozens of people for a house party, police said Monday.

Tyler Hadley, 17, is in police custody, charged on two first-degree murder counts. Port St. Lucie Police spokesman Tom Nichols told reporters Monday that the teenage boy was denied bond.

Around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Port St. Lucie Police Capt. Don Kryak said Hadley posted an invitation on Facebook, inviting friends to a party at his house.

Sometime after that, police said he used a 22-inch framing hammer to fatally beat his parents — Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley — in the head and torso outside their master bedroom door of their Port St. Lucie home. He then dragged them inside the room and used “books, files, towels, anything that he could find inside the home to cover the bodies,” Nichols said.

Then, the teenager proceeded to party.

Between 40 and 60 people turned up sometime after 9 p.m., according to police. Nichols said that “during the party and after the party, there was a rumor that perhaps Tyler had killed his parents.” But, while saying police wanted to talk to more partygoers, he did not indicate if anyone else saw the dead couple’s bodies locked in the master bedroom.

Police became involved after getting an anonymous tip, which led them to conduct a welfare check at the house around 4:20 a.m. Sunday.

Kryak said Tyler Hadley appeared “nervous” when law enforcement officers arrived, telling them his parents were out of town. They eventually found the alleged murder weapon lying between his parents’ bodies.

“The crime scene was certainly a merciless killing,” the police captain said. “It was brutal.”

Autopsies are being conducted on Blake and Mary-Jo Hadley, though police repeated that they believe both died from “blunt force trauma.”

Tyler Hadley had dropped out of St. Lucie Centennial West High School and later took classes at Indian River State College, Kryak said.

Nichols said police do not know why the teen, who has made “no incriminating statements,” may have killed his parents. There are no plans to charge anyone else in connection with the pair’s deaths.

“I’ve known Mary-Jo since she was in high school in Fort Lauderdale,” Charlene Moses, a family friend, told CNN-affiliate WPTV. “They are a nice family. The kids are always nice.”

10 July 2011   07:44 ET

Labour leader Ed Miliband says he will force a Commons vote to delay News Corporation’s proposed takeover of BSkyB, until the investigation into the News of the World is completed.

The last edition of the newpaper has been published, with a full-page apology for hacking mobile phones.

News Corporation owner Rupert Murdoch has arrived in the UK to take charge of the handling of the scandal.

Transport Secretary Philip Hammond said he was “concerned” by the BSkyB deal.

Mr Miliband urged Mr Murdoch to take action and sack executive Rebekah Brooks.

Mrs Brooks – a former News of the World editor and now chief executive of News International – has been under pressure over staying in her role while journalists on the paper have lost their jobs.

Mr Murdoch immediately went to News International’s head office at Wapping in east London after flying into the country.

Mr Miliband denied he had “declared war on Rupert Murdoch” but also called on him to abandon the BSkyB bid.

In its final editorial the paper says: “Quite simply, we lost our way”.

Publisher News International axed the 168-year-old tabloid in the wake of phone-hacking allegations last week.

Campaigners, including actor Hugh Grant, have claimed the closure of the paper was a cynical move designed to protect the BSkyB takeover.

Mr Miliband said the takeover should be referred to the Competition Commission rather than “relying on assurances from News International”.

He said he did not want to force a vote in the Commons but David Cameron had left him no option.

‘Disgusting revelations’

“He has got to understand that when the public have seen the disgusting revelations that we have seen this week, the idea that this organisation, which engaged in these terrible practices, should be allowed to take over BSkyB, to get that 100% stake, without the criminal investigation having been completed and on the basis of assurances from that self-same organisation – frankly that just won’t wash with the public,” he told BBC1’s Andrew Marr programme.

Mr Hammond told Sky News: “I understand people would be very concerned [if the BSkyB takeover went through while criminal investigations were ongoing] and I think many of us would be very concerned.

Rupert Murdoch arrives at Wapping to take charge of the crisis
“But we have to operate within the law. If the motion is calling on the government to ignore its duties under the law, simply to ride roughshod over the law, then I’m afraid that would be calling on us to be in no better position than others are currently being accused of,” he added.

The Labour leader also denied there were similarities between former NoW editor Andy Coulson, who went on to work for the Conservatives, and his own director of strategy Tom Baldwin.

Mr Coulson resigned as the prime minister’s spokesman in January saying ongoing hacking claims were distracting him from his job. He denies knowledge of phone hacking during his NoW editorship from 2003-07.

Earlier Andrew Marr asked Mr Miliband allegations which had been made by Michael Ashcroft, a former deputy Conservative chairman and major donor, that Mr Baldwin, a former journalist at The Times, had recruited a private investigator to hack into Mr Ashcroft’s bank account.


When this outrage has been atoned, we hope history will eventually judge us on all our years”
News of the World

Mr Miliband said the claims were not true, Mr Baldwin had denied it and it did not bear comparison with Mr Coulson’s situation.

He added: “I have to say that this is pretty desperate stuff because the prime minister must answer the real questions at the heart of this affair – about his error of judgment in hiring Andy Coulson and the mounting evidence there now is about the warnings that were given to him before he brought Andy Coulson into the heart of the government machine.”

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne, a Liberal Democrat, did not rule out voting for the motion in the Commons but said he would have to study the wording.

He said: “There are two separate processes here – one is that Ofcom can at any time investigate whether the people running one of our broadcast organisations are fit and proper people – and that’s not associated with the question of clearing the merger.

“I believe we should have a personal assurance from Rupert Murdoch that these illegal practices were confined to the News of the World.”

The print run was doubled for the final edition with many extra readers expected to buy it as a souvenir
Meanwhile Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner John Yates has expressed “extreme regret” for not reopening the phone hacking investigation two years ago.

In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, he said he regretted the way he had handled it after reviewing the initial police investigation which led to the conviction of private investigator Glenn Mulcaire in 2007.

Mr Yates said he did not re-examine the 11,000 pages of material recovered from Mulcaire’s home but spent eight hours considering the matter, and consulted the Crown Prosecution Service, but decided there was no likelihood of further convictions.

Yates ‘will not resign’

He said the decision now seemed a “pretty crap one”.

Mr Yates admitted the Metropolitan Police’s reputation had been tarnished by the scandal but said he had no intention of resigning.

Around 200 people will lose their jobs with the closure of the NoW
During a short speech to more than 200 staff outside the paper’s offices in Wapping, east London, late on Saturday night editor Colin Myler held up the 8,674th and final edition of the Sunday newspaper, saying: “This is not where we want to be and not where we deserve to be.”

The NoW has doubled Sunday’s print run to five million, with money from the sales being donated to four charities.

Alan Edwards, one of the NoW journalists who has now lost his job, told the BBC it had been a “terribly emotional” final day on the paper, working on a “momentous edition”.

He said: “We wanted to leave with our heads held high. Whatever went on years ago was nothing to do with those of us who left yesterday.”

The family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, whose phone was allegedly hacked after her abduction in 2002, is to meet Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on Monday to discuss the independent inquiries related to the phone hacking scandal, and will also meet Prime Minister David Cameron.

In a letter to MPs released on Saturday, Mrs Brooks denied all knowledge of alleged hacking of the phone of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler or any other case while she was editor.

What do Jiangsu Province, the minor pop idol Jiang Yirong and Huadong Hospital in Shanghai have in common? Over the past day, these and scores of other words and expressions have been blocked on much of the Chinese Internet, a result of the government’s unrelenting attempt to quash widespread rumors that the former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin is dead or dying.

Not surprisingly, the stepped-up effort to silence speculation about the well being of Mr. Jiang, 84, who officially retired as party chief in 2002 and as president in 2003, has generated even more rumors since last Friday after he failed to attend the 90th anniversary gala commemorating the birth of the Chinese Communist Party.

On Thursday morning, the official Xinhua News Agency issued an English-language response to the reports that Mr. Jiang had died, saying they were “pure rumor” and quoting what it said were “authoritative sources.” Later in the day, during a regularly scheduled news conference, a Foreign Ministry spokesman declined to answer any questions about Mr. Jiang’s health, referring journalists to the Xinhua statement. That exchange, however, was curiously omitted from a transcript of the news conference posted on the ministry’s website.

While China’s ruling party has not in recent years suppressed news about the death of an important leader, officials rarely, if ever, discuss the health of current or former leaders, and they ban news coverage of those subjects.

“I don’t want to believe rumors, but what am I supposed to do when rumors always turn out to be true in this country?” said a posting on Sina Weibo, the popular microblogging site that on Wednesday seemed to be suffering an especially zealous rash of censorship.

In many instances, the offending words contain the character “Jiang,” the former leader’s surname, which also means “river” in Chinese. Huadong, also unsearchable, is the top-notch hospital where Mr. Jiang, the once jaunty Communist Party general secretary, may or may not have been treated for a heart attack, a stroke or infected mosquito bites — all ailments alternately blamed for his disappearance from public view.

Speculative online accounts have repeated as fact the rumor that the respirator supposedly keeping Mr. Jiang alive would be unplugged on July 8. The number eight is considered lucky among the Chinese because it rhymes with another character meaning prosperity. (While the accounts are likely to be false, some historical accounts say an ailing Mao Zedong was taken off life support on Sept. 9, 1976, because the ninth day of the ninth month would be an easy date for the masses to remember.)

Mr. Jiang last appeared on state television in 2009, when he joined other senior leaders reviewing a military spectacle marking the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China.

Talk about Mr. Jiang’s impending demise has ricocheted across the Internet and then faded numerous times over the years. But his failure to show up at the 90th anniversary celebration, a required event for retired party elders as well as current leaders, raises the likelihood that he is in fact ailing.

A Hong Kong television station went so far as to broadcast news of Mr. Jiang’s death before retracting the report. And overseas Chinese Web sites that specialize in political gossip have been claiming that Mr. Jiang died Tuesday night or that a large number of police officers were spotted outside the Beijing hospital that caters to senior leaders. (Not surprisingly, that institution, the 301 Military Hospital, can no longer be searched on the Internet.)

Sam Crane, a China expert at Williams College, suggested that the government censorship machine was counterproductive. “It’s making them look very foolish,” he said. “The state is trying to control information so they can control the narrative, but in the Internet era that’s harder and harder to do.”

The narrative about Communist Party leaders has always been a fraught business, with the passing of top leaders sometimes proving politically disruptive. In 1976, after the death of the beloved Prime Minister Zhou Enlai, party leaders tried to suppress public mourning. In the end, as many as two million people defied the authorities by gathering in Tiananmen Square, where they criticized the Gang of Four, Mao and the excesses of his Cultural Revolution.

A decade later, the unexpected death of General Secretary Hu Yaobang led to an outpouring of public grief in Tiananmen Square that morphed into a mass protest against the party. That episode, which ended in a hail of gunfire on June 4, 1989, shook the party to its core.

The death of Mr. Jiang, whose tenure is not especially savored by Chinese liberals, would not be likely to draw such an emotional public response. But the Communist Party does not like to leave anything to chance.

Roderick MacFarquhar, a China specialist at Harvard University, said that even if the rumor about Mr. Jiang’s failing health proved true, the party had never hidden public disclosure about the death of a senior leader. Any delay, even if brief, might be aimed at allowing the members of the Politburo Standing Committee to prepare his obituary and public eulogy, which would presumably be delivered by President Hu Jintao, who succeeded him as party chief.

“They need time to prepare, not so much for the funeral, but for the description of the man and his place in Chinese Communist Party history,” Mr. MacFarquhar said.

In the meantime, the government’s handling of the matter seems to be prompting a torrent of ridicule on the Internet, especially on Twitter and other overseas sites that are beyond the control of Beijing’s censors. On Wednesday, people began circulating photographs of Mr. Jiang shaking hands with the former leader Deng Xiaoping (“they meet again”) and a cartoon of a pair of trousers hanging on a clothesline that is meant to be a reference to a Chinese euphemism for death.

Isayah Muller Facebook

06/29/11 01:52 AM ET

A high school football star was stabbed and later died just hours after his graduation Tuesday in a fight with Bronx parking attendants over whether something was stolen from his family’s car during the ceremony, police said.

Isayah Muller, 19, a star running back who led his team to the Public Schools Athletic League championship, was rushed to a nearby clinic by his family and girlfriend and was later pronounced dead, said Paul Browne, the New York Police Department’s chief spokesman. No arrests have been made but the parking attendants and Muller’s father, Andre, were speaking to officers from the 52 Precinct in the Bronx early Wednesday, Browne said.

The family arrived at the lot on Jerome Avenue in the Bronx at about 9 a.m. and walked over to the campus of Lehman College, where graduation was being held Tuesday for students from Harry S. Truman High School. Following the ceremony, the family headed back to the car, Browne said.

An argument erupted initially between Muller’s father and parking attendants, whom he accused of stealing something from his auto, Browne said. The father noticed the property missing from the car while the family was en route to a celebratory meal Tuesday afternoon on City Island, a fishing hamlet on the northern tip of the Bronx.

Angry over the missing property, Andre Muller turned the car around and headed back to the parking lot, Browne said. The fight broke out and Isayah Muller was stabbed in the chest, though it’s not clear by whom. The father and son ran to the family car where his mother and girlfriend were waiting and they drove him to the clinic. Muller was later transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly before 6 p.m., Browne said.

It’s not clear how many attendants were involved in the incident, or who delivered the fatal blow. There was no answer at the garage early Wednesday.

Muller was headed to Nassau Community College in Garden City, Long Island, in the fall, according to his Facebook page. His Facebook profile showed him to be a popular guy who was hardworking and enjoyed sports.

He was a star running back. He rushed for 285 yards during the high school championship game in November, winning 23-20 over the top-seeded Beach Channel. His performance was the talk of newspapers and television alike. He was revered by his teammates.

“Isayah Muller is the type of player who steps up when the game is on the line,” Truman coach John-James Shepherd told the Daily News of New York after the winning Nov. 28 game. “The more pressure he has, the more comfortable he is.”

Team quarterback Xavier Hamilton told newspapers and blogs that Muller was the team’s go-to guy.

“To him, there’s no such thing as pressure,” Hamilton told ESPN’s high school report. “You put the ball his hands and it’s like he’s in a zone. You look in his eyes and there’s no reflection. He just gets the ball and does what he has to do.”

Muller ran the last five plays of the November game. According to ESPN, “He not only carried the ball, but also his entire team.”

“I really wasn’t tired,” Muller told ESPN. “This is my last game of my high school career. I didn’t want to take one step off that field. I’m still not tired. I could play the whole game all over again.”

photo - SHAUN BOSSE / MURDER SUSPECT / ARREST: Shaun Michael Bosse, 27, arrested in the deaths of Katrina Griffin and her two children     ORG XMIT: 1007240007304738

June 26, 2011 2:07 p.m. EDT

A manhunt was under way Sunday for an Oklahoma jail inmate who overpowered two
deputies and stole one deputy’s car in escaping from custody, authorities
said.

Shaun Bosse, 27, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one
count of arson. He is accused of killing Katrina Griffin, 24, and her two
children — Christian, 8, and Chastity, 6 — on July 23, according to CNN
affiliate KOCO.

Bosse stole a black 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix in his escape, said McClain
County Undersheriff Bill Shobe. The car, which was newly purchased, has a paper
tag, he said.

The car was last seen going northbound out of Purcell, Oklahoma, at about
10:25 a.m. (11:25 a.m. ET), Shobe said.

“In fact, I passed the vehicle before knowing about the escape,” Shobe said.
“I was on my way to church and remember seeing the vehicle, but they didn’t call
me until later.”

As of Sunday, six deputies were searching for Bosse, and an aircraft was to
be used in an aerial search, Shobe said. A “be on the lookout” bulletin was
issued.

The bodies of Griffin and her two children were found in a mobile home that
had caught fire, according to KOCO. Authorities said she died from eight stab
wounds, and Christian had been stabbed five times, while Chastity died in the
fire, KOCO said.

According to court documents, Bosse told investigators that he and Griffin
had been dating for about two weeks, KOCO said.

Bosse is described as being about 5 feet 10 inches tall and
weighing about 215 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes.

Deputies later found the car, a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix abandoned. Shobe said
officers are continuing with a ground and air search to recapture Bosse.

June 22, 2011 12:26 p.m. EDT

Among the strung out addicts with zombie eyes and the beaten down prostitutes loitering by neon-lit entrances to adult video stores, Kelsey Emily Collins would have stuck out.

She was from out of town and too young to be where she was.

As she would later testify to a federal grand jury, a man 20 years older than her drove Kelsey 170 miles down Interstate 5 from Seattle to Portland’s 82nd Ave.

There amidst the strip’s seedy motels and lingerie stores where customers can buy backroom lap dances and more, the plan was simple: sell her to as many men as possible.

After that first night in January 2008 when she made about $1,000, all of which she later told investigators went to her pimp, Kelsey went right back to work as a prostitute.

Emily Collins changed her name to "Kelsey" at age 7 when her mother left her abusive husband.

Emily Collins changed her name to “Kelsey” at age 7 when her mother left her abusive husband.
One night, police stopped her getting out of a customer’s car.

Kelsey was 16 years old.

From the moment she was born, Sarah Collins, Kelsey’s mother, said she had to fight to stay alive. Plagued with intestinal problems, she spent most of the first year of her life in the hospital.

It was pretty nervewracking. Sarah would later deny to her other three children that Kelsey was her favorite. But there was no point arguing it.

“Her older sisters always told me I treated her like the princess,” Sarah said. “When you have a child that’s that ill, you had a bond you can’t disguise.”

But life wasn’t getting any easier.

Sarah and her children fled an abusive husband. They fled the state and changed their names. Sarah’s ex-husband is serving a 20 year prison sentence for the abuse of her family and with another decade to serve, she feels like he’s not an immediate threat.

Sarah’s youngest daughter had been called Emily until age 7, but they changed her name when the family fled.

Now she was known as Kelsey.

She was a girl with two names and, as her mother would discover, two lives.

Sarah Collins says her daughter, who survived a serious intestinal illness when she was a baby, lived two separate lives.
Sarah Collins says her daughter, who survived a serious intestinal illness when she was a baby, lived two separate lives.

“As soon as she hit puberty she started getting into trouble,” Sarah said. “I thought she was going to be the one who was going to give me no trouble. Instead she did everything her sisters did times ten.”

At first Kelsey ran away to go to parties, her mom said, to drink and smoke. She totaled Sarah’s car during a joyride.

After Kelsey stole a stranger’s car to go to the mall, Sarah called the police.

“That’s how she became involved in the juvenile system,” Sarah said. “It was not helpful to her. She wouldn’t come home so they’d put her in juvy or she wouldn’t go to school and they’d put her in juvy. It was like a revolving door.”

Then Kelsey was arrested for prostitution. Sarah was stunned.

“I spent too much time energy and money to keep you alive!” Sarah screamed at her daughter. “I am not going to let you throw your life away!”

Four years later she shakes her head at the memory of those fights.

“I missed all the signs.” She said. “I didn’t think she was being forced to do it.”

Kelsey was silent about who or what made her sell her body. She was failing drug tests, absent from school and, Sarah believes she was in love with the same men who sold her to strangers.

Sarah saw signs of physical abuse. Kelsey denied her boyfriends were responsible and said the bruises and black eyes came from fights at school.

“When I went into court the fifth or sixth time she was picked up for prostitution and I am like, ‘I don’t know what to do!'” Sarah said. “‘I am begging for some help here.'”

Sgt. Doug Justus says he believes Collins was killed for testifying before a federal grand jury against her alleged traffickers.

Sgt. Doug Justus says he believes Collins was killed for testifying before a federal grand jury against her alleged traffickers.
Sgt. Doug Justus was also looking for help when he arrived at the Collins home a month after Kelsey’s Portland arrest.

Justus headed the Portland Police Bureau’s vice squad. Although he had been a cop for over twenty years, Justus was a recent convert to the idea that police should target the men who were forcing young girls to sell themselves.

“People didn’t any know better, there was no education, there was no training,” he said. “It was ‘real cops catch a bank robber.”

But after seeing underage women manipulated into believing they loved the same men who beat them down and sold them again and again, Justus had a change of heart.

Sex trafficking, he says “is domestic abuse on steroids.”

But prosecuting sex trafficking is another matter.

“It is very difficult, said Ernest Allen, the president and CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

According to Allen, trafficking in the United States is not as easy to spot as in other countries where victims are often held in bondage.

Allen said U.S. victims are commonly targeted for their emotional frailty and troubled home lives.

“In the US these are runaway, throwaway or homeless kids,” Allen said “They feel a misplaced loyalty and fear for their safety. This is organized crime.”

Allen said even if sex slavery isn’t as visible in the United States, victims here pay a terrible price, forced to turn over their earnings to alleged pimps and enduring beatings.

Over the last eight years, Allen said a partnership with his organization and law enforcement has led to the conviction of 700 pimps and the rescue of 1,600 kids who were sexually trafficked.

Underage prostitution, Justus said, attracts hardened criminals out of simple economics.

“You can only sell the drugs once, these girls you can sell over and over,” he said.

To reach Kelsey, Justus took a different approach than police had in the past; he told her she was a victim.

“It took her a while because she hadn’t heard that before,” he said.

Gradually Kelsey opened up to the detective about the man who sold her in Portland.

“He bought her clothes, got her condoms, taught her what to do, how to do it,” Justus said. “Everything. And he kept every penny.

“She said all she did was have sex all night long.”

Kelsey promised Justus she would testify in the case against her pimp.

Justus brought Kelsey to Portland with her mom to testify to a grand jury. Sarah said her daughter was afraid.

“She sat outside the courtroom in the car and cried,” Sarah said. “She could’ve run at that point. She wasn’t in handcuffs. She didn’t though.

“She sat there and cried on my shoulder and said ‘Mommy I am scared.’ I told her it was the right thing to do.”

Kelsey was released to her mother who says she couldn’t navigate the red tape to get the counseling her daughter needed.

“What she did was so brave and then they tell you she’s too old for this program, too old for that program,” Sarah Collins said.

For girls who have been trafficked, said Ernest Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, returning to their old lives is not an option.

“You can’t go home and have a happily ever after,” he said. “You can’t pick up where you left off in the ninth grade.”

About a month after she testified Kelsey told her mother she was taking the bus to see a new boyfriend in Seattle.

It was Mother’s Day, 2009 and her family never heard from Kelsey again.

Kelsey’s disappearance caused inter agency tensions, said Justus.

“There was a lot of fallout,” he said “Political boundaries went up. I know it was hard on everybody but let’s swallow our pride, say we made a mistake, work together as a team and solve this thing.”

Federal prosecutors indicted Kelsey’s alleged pimp for trafficking in June 2009.  He pled not guilty.

But in March 2010 the indictment was dismissed after Kelsey, the star witness in the case could not be found.

Justus believed Kelsey was targeted for speaking out.

Three months later, the alleged pimp would plead guilty to trafficking in a separate case. He was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for trafficking a 14 year old girl into prostitution.

Whether or not he can prove it, Justus has his suspicions about what happened to Kelsey.

“I truly believe she was killed for testifying in this case,” he said. “The federal government didn’t do their job, they didn’t protect her.”

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Portland said federal prosecutors were unable to discuss Kelsey’s case since it is “an ongoing investigation.”

But in a statement released to CNN, U.S. Attorney Dwight C. Holton said, “Our heart goes out to Kelsey’s family. We are pursuing every viable option and doing everything we can to put together this puzzle.”

Sarah Collins has lost faith.

“They used her and they threw her away,” Collins says of the prosecutors.

She said she doubts anyone is still seriously pursuing what happened to her daughter two years after she vanished.

She has finally put away Kelsey’s clothes and lives with the fear that perhaps she will never know.

But she did find some answers in a letter Kelsey wrote to a friend:

“I have a new way to make a lot of money for us,” 16-year-old Kelsey wrote.

A boyfriend had come to her with the idea of selling her body.

“I couldn’t believe he was asking me to be a whore.”

Kelsey’s mom said the boyfriend was convinced he could get Kelsey to go along.

Kelsey’s letter continued, “The next thing I knew I was.”

“Wilfred,”beginning Thursday night on FX, is a semi-dark comedy in which Frodo Baggins frequently shares a bong with a large Australian man wearing a dog suit. Some shows aspire to cult status; this one goes straight there, practically bypassing the need to be broadcast at all.

Elijah Wood, who went to New Zealand to play Frodo the hobbit in the “Lord of the Rings” movies, maintains his Down Under bona fides with “Wilfred.” It’s the American remake of an Australian succès d’estime that grew from a joke between friends to a short film to a 16-episode television series; the series won several Australian Film Institute awards, including best comedy.

                    Mr. Wood plays Ryan, a clean-cut young depressive who tries with a notable lack of success to commit suicide as the pilot opens. Jason Gann, who created the original series with Adam Zwar, reprises his role as Wilfred, the dog belonging to Ryan’s nubile neighbor, Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann).

Ryan, and only Ryan, sees Wilfred as a man in a moth-eaten, floppy-eared dog suit. Viewers seeking an explanation for this, or looking for some symbolic framework — Wilfred as an expression of Ryan’s loneliness and insecurity, canine id beckoning to human superego, the loutish working-class dog versus the buttoned-up salaryman — will be disappointed, at least through the first three episodes. Sometimes a man in a dog suit is just a man in a dog suit.

The show’s casual surreality can be traced to its roots, when Mr. Zwar told Mr. Gann a story about going home with a date and encountering her jealous dog. That anecdote, expanded to sitcom length, became the first episode of the original show. The idea was simple: a dog fights a man over a woman, and gradually they become mates. It was a buddy comedy crossed with a talking-animal comedy, filmed on a shoestring (much of the action involved man and dog sitting on a couch and getting high) and featuring the foul language and full frontal nudity allowed on Australian broadcast television.

The new version has been put in the hands of the writer and producer David Zuckerman (“Family Guy,” “American Dad”) and toned down for American basic cable, though the humor still pushes the envelope. (Some of the nastiest jokes, as it happens, target Asians: the narrowness of their birth canals, the foulness of their cooking.)

The real signs of Americanization are higher production values, more plot elements and a streak of slightly gooey sentimentality. Instead of dating Jenna from the get-go, Ryan now admires her from across the fence, a chaste and emasculating rejiggering of the story.

“Wilfred” tries for a coarse sophistication that locates it somewhere between HBO’s winsome “Flight of the Conchords” and FX’s brutally honest “Louie” (which begins its second season on Thursday night).  But it ends up muffled and not very funny. Mr. Gann’s bits of doggie business — turning in circles before sitting on the couch, chasing a laser-pen light — are reliably humorous, but beyond that the show doesn’t offer a lot of bark or bite.

WILFRED

FX, Thursday nights at 10, Eastern and Pacific times; 9, Central time.

A U.S. Marine reservist detained in a security scare last week around the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery had his bond from a prior criminal case revoked, a local sheriff’s office spokesman said Monday.

Yonathan Melaku, who was detained Friday after being found acting suspiciously before dawn in the national cemetery, was arrested in May in Leesburg, Virginia, during a vehicle tampering investigation, said Kraig Troxell of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

In the earlier case, Melaku, 22, was charged with four counts of grand larceny and released on a $5,000 bond, Troxell said. Melaku’s detention last week caused that bond to be revoked, and Melaku was moved Friday to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, according to Troxell.

No federal charges have been filed against Melaku so far regarding his detention last week. After he was taken into custody, Melaku provided information that led authorities to a car parked in bushes on the side of a road near the Pentagon and prompted explosives experts to examine the red 2011 Nissan, according to an FBI statement.

A security perimeter set up to divert traffic from the area closed Route 27 and other roads around the Pentagon and national cemetery in northern Virginia just across the Potomac River from Washington, snarling morning rush-hour traffic.

No explosives or other suspicious material were found in the vehicle, FBI Special Agent Brenda Heck said. A backpack Melaku was carrying held bags of a “nonexplosive unknown material” that was being investigated, she said.

At the White House, press secretary Jay Carney said Friday that “there were no dangerous materials or explosives found.”

The FBI said Melaku, of nearby Alexandria, Virginia, was detained for trespass in Arlington National Cemetery when it was closed.

“At this time, law enforcement believes Melaku acted alone and that there were no other locations or activity involved,” an FBI statement said.

According to the U.S. Marine Corps, Melaku joined the Marine Corps Reserve in September 2007 and currently is listed as a Marine Corps reservist lance corporal and a motor vehicle operator with the Combat Engineer Support Company of the 4th Combat Engineer Battalion in the 4th Marine Division.

He has been awarded the National Defense Service Medal and the Selected Marine Corps Reserve Medal, and he was not deployed overseas, said the information from the Marine Corps.

A source in the military said Melaku had “fallen off the radar as a Marine.” He has failed to pass required fitness tests, and records show that he was given a nonrecommendation for promotion, according to the source.

PHOTO: Suffolk County police gather near the door of a house before escorting two people out in connection with a pharmacy robbery that left four dead, in Medford, N.Y. on June 22, 2011.

June 22nd, 2011

A suspect in the brutal slayings of four people during the robbery of a New
York pharmacy — a shooting the county police chief called the “most heinous”
crime he’d ever seen — was arrested today and is being questioned by police,
sources told ABC News.

The suspect was identified as 33-year-old David Laffer. He was picked up at a
home this morning just minutes away from where the bloodbath took place.

A woman believed to be the suspect’s wife is in protective custody while
police determine if she played any role in the robbery, whether she harbored a
fugitive or if she is a potential witness.

Police are trying to match Laffer’s fingerprints against any prints at the
crime scene and a search warrant has been issued for Laffer’s home.

The boyfriend of one of the shooting victims was outside the pharmacy when
the shootings took place and may be asked to identify the gunman, sources said.

The shocking crime stunned the New York suburb of Medford, Long Island, and
outraged veteran law enforcement officers. Suffolk County Police Commissioner
Richard Dormer called it “one of the most heinous, brutal crimes we have ever
encountered.”

The quadruple murder was the worst slaying in Suffolk County since the
“Amityville horror in 1974 when Ronald DeFeo killed six members of his family
while they slept.

Laffer allegedly walked into Haven Drugs, in Medford a little after 10 a.m.
on Sunday morning. He shot all four victims execution style, and stole a
backpack full of prescription painkillers.

“It was a question of going in there and getting oxycontin and getting out of
there,” Wally Zeins, a former New York Police Department detective, told ABC
News.

When news of the drug story slaying broke, the detail that the killer stuffed
his backpack with painkillers stood out to narcotics investigators.

A team of prosecutors and investigators at the New York City Office of
Special Narcotics went to a prescription drug database they maintain where they
found that Laffer had filled numerous prescriptions for hydrocodone, the generic
for Vicodine and other drugs at the drugstore where the robbery took place,
sources told ABC News.

He also lived in Medford near pharmacy. And he had a pistol permit.

At that point investigators pulled Department of Motor Vehicles records, got
the suspect’s photos and compared them to surveillance video, source said.

Special Narcotics Prosecutor Bridget Brennan brought the information to the
New York City prosecutor’s federal partner at the Drug Enforcement
Administration who brought it to Suffolk, leading detectives their to the
suspect.

Surveillance video taken at the store, shows the suspect leaving calmly after
the bloody rampage. Pharmacist Raymond Ferguson, 45, and clerk Jennifer Mejia,
17, were shot dead. Two customers, Byron Sheffield, 71, and Jamie Tacetta, 33,
were also murdered.

Mejia was set to graduate from Bellport High School and Tacetta was planning
her fall wedding. Her family intends to bury Tacetta in her bridal gown.

Since the killings police have urged pharmacies in the area to increase their
security. Drug stores are now equipping themselves with surveillance cameras to
protect themselves from possible break–ins. Haven Drugs had been robbed three
times over the past 19 months. Long Island, a New York City suburb, has seen a
125 percent increase in hold-ups in the last two years.

“When something like that happens, I don’t think any place is safe,” Norma
Fahel, manager of Beacon pharmacy in Port Washington, N.Y., told ABC News.

An Army veteran from Medford who was recently fired from his job was arrested Wednesday in the quadruple murder at a Medford pharmacy, law enforcement sources said.

The arrest of David Laffer, 33, culminated an intense three-day manhunt for the gunman.

The suspect offered some resistance when he was arrested about 10 a.m. at 30 Pitchpine Place, a police source said. He was taken to Suffolk County police headquarters in Yaphank. A woman said to be Laffer’s wife, Melinda Brady, 29, also was reportedly taken away in handcuffs.


After the shooting Sunday at Haven Drugs, a law enforcement source said, Laffer returned home as if nothing happened and picked up his daily routine, even doing yardwork later in the day. After allegedly using a .45-caliber pistol to gun down two workers and two customers, Laffer is suspected of stealing about 10,000 hydrocodone pills contained in wholesale canisters, sources said.

Laffer, a 1995 graduate of Patchogue-Medford High School, was fired two weeks ago from Cosa Instruments in Yaphank, which distributes commercial-grade measuring instruments, after he tried to steal property from another employee, one source said. He had worked there for about seven years, according to a law enforcement source.

Cosa chief financial officer Robert Striedl closed his eyes and shook his head when told of the arrest. He declined to comment. An attorney for the company, Paul Rubell of Mineola, confirmed Laffer was a former employee.

Less than two days before the shooting, Laffer had applied for government assistance for the first time, according to a source with knowledge of the case file who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Laffer applied for food stamps online at 8:08 p.m. on Friday, the source said. Laffer typed up the application on mybenefits.ny.gov, said the source. Suffolk County Department of Social Services caseworkers had not acted on the application.

Laffer would have needed a household income of less than $18,948 to qualify for food stamps, according to the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.

The suspect served in the U.S. Army from 1994 until his discharge in 2002, according to Mark Edwards with the Army’s Human Resources Command. He worked as an intelligence analyst and attained the rank of private first class before leaving, Edwards said.

Officials said surveillance cameras at Haven Drugs captured the events: A thin young man wearing a white baseball cap and sunglasses walking into the store and shooting the pharmacist, Raymond Ferguson, 45; and an employee, Jennifer Mejia, 17, of Medford, a high school senior. The gunman then shot two customers: Bryon Sheffield, 71, of Medford, who was picking up drugs for his wife’s heart ailments; and Jaime Taccetta, 33, of Farmingville, a single mother of two.

A beard the shooter had during the shooting was part of an apparent disguise, the source said.

Investigators believe the suspect was motivated by addiction to painkillers. He took no cash from the register, according to a law enforcement source.

In a statement, County Executive Steve Levy praised the police department on making the arrest.

“It is my hope that the families of those felled this past Sunday may draw a modicum of comfort in knowing that the authorities acted with laser focus to remove from the streets a suspect related to these horrible, despicable crimes,” Levy said.

Viedya Sabrina Quail-Ferguson, Ferguson‘s wife, got the news of the arrest before her husband’s wake in Farmingdale.

“I feel like I can come here stronger, not with this cloud over my head,” she said.

Quail added: “You hear people say I hope they hang him, but I don’t feel that because a life is a life, but I hope he never gets out.”

Neighbors who said they know Laffer were shocked by the arrest.

Trish Bohlert, a next-door neighbor, said Laffer lived in the house with his wife and mother. She attended his wedding a few years ago, she said.

Bohlert said she would never have thought that Laffer, who she had not seen in about a week, could commit such a crime.

“He was very nice,” said Bohlert, 51. “He was always outside playing with his nieces and nephews. He used to always say ‘hello’ to us and stop and talk.”

Neighbor Michael Pagliuca said he was shocked that Laffer could be involved in such a heinous crime.

“David is a very bright, intelligent person,” Pagliuca said. “I can’t believe this.”

Zaida Ayala, who lives near Laffer and considers him a friend, described Laffer as a quiet man who had an interest in the FBI and military. She said she would let her grandchildren play in Laffer’s yard, and it was never an issue.

“Quiet, keeps to himself, cleans the yard, mows the lawn,” she said. “Never a word, never a curse, totally shocking.”

Interviewed at his West Sayville home, Laffer’s father-in-law, Charlie Brady, paused and took a deep breath when told of the arrest.

“OK. In that case I better call my wife,” Brady said, adding, “After this, no comment.”

Alan Laffer, 53, an uncle from upstate Congers, said the suspect’s father died in 1996 of a heart attack, and he has only seen his nephew a couple of times since.

“I hope there’s nothing to this, that’s all I can say,” Alan Laffer said.

Following the arrest, Daniel Taccetta, Jaime Taccetta’s brother, showed up at Yaphank police headquarters to see the suspect face-to-face.

“I just hope it’s him,” Daniel Taccetta said, adding that he will follow the case “every step of the way.”

On Monday, noting that all the victims were defenseless and shot at close range, Suffolk Police Commissioner Richard Dormer called the slayings “one of the most heinous, brutal crimes we’ve ever experienced.”

With all four victims collapsed in the storefront shop, the gunman loaded his backpack with opiate painkillers, police said.

And he walked out.

It was the worst mass shooting in Long Island since Dec. 7, 1993, when Colin Ferguson opened fire on a Long Island Rail Road train, killing six people and wounding 19.

The manhunt for the Medford suspect and pleas by police for any viable information from the public generated hundreds of leads, police said.

Meanwhile, grief and anger rippled through the central Suffolk communities where the victims had lived, as a memorial of flowers and candles sprung up outside the one-story medical office building off Route 112 that houses Haven Drugs.

But, just after noon Wednesday, a police officer took down the electronic sign on Route 112 soliciting tips in the slayings.

After 27 years with wrong man behind bars, cops have four new murder suspects

June 21st, 2011  09:22 AM ET

After an 18 month investigation the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Florida announced it has solved a murder case in which a man was wrongly imprisoned for nearly three decades.

James Dvorak was found dead more than 30 years ago on Cordova Beach in Central Florida. For 27 of those years William Dillon maintained his innocence as he sat behind bars doing time for Dvorak’s murder.

“Based on the information we have, the DNA evidence, some witness statements and some other information all appearances are [Dillon] was not involved in the beating death of Mr. Dvorak,” Brevard County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Lt. Todd Goodyear said.

The DNA testing of evidence that helped gain Dillon’s release from prison in 2008 also helped lead the sheriff’s office to four new suspects. The suspects have not been charged but the case has been handed over to the prosecutor’s office.

“It’s a little bit different to put your suspects out before you arrest them,” Goodyear said.

He says with the focus off of Dillon the sheriff’s office hopes to find more witnesses to “fill in some of the blanks.”

Although Dillon says he is “extremely glad” that the sheriff’s office found out who committed the crime, he still has a heavy heart.

“It hurts me down deep in my soul,” Dillon said, “because I have been dealing with this for 30 years.”

Goodyear says over those 30 years investigative tools have changed.

“We have the advantage of one thing they didn’t,” Goodyear said. “Science. And that has been very helpful in this.”

As the sheriff’s office continues to investigate those they say are responsible for Dvorak’s death, the man who was originally convicted of the crime is still trying to rebuild his life.

Dillon plans to do this by using the songs he wrote while wrongly incarcerated. On August 16 Dillon’s CD “Black Robes and Lawyers” will be released.

The title song starts off with Dillon saying, “I was arrested for murder on August 26, 1981, for a crime I didn’t commit.”

Ryan Dunn, one of the stars of MTV’s “Jackass,” died Monday in a car crash at the age of 34. Although his friends and co-stars, including Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O, made statements shortly after the news broke, Dunn’s longtime friend Bam Margera was noticeably silent.

Late Monday night, the “Viva La Bam” star broke his silence to address his friend’s death on Twitter. But the tweet wasn’t a straightforward tribute like some may have expected. Instead, Margera was defending his late friend against film critic Roger Ebert, who tweeted, “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”

While the cause of accident is still being determined, many were quick to come to the conclusion that Dunn was under the influence of alcohol at the time of his death. Shortly before the crash, which also killed a passenger who is being identified by NBC Philadelphia, Dunn posted a picture of himself drinking at a bar. However, an autopsy has not been completed and DUI was not checked as a cause of the crash on the initial accident report.

Margera responded to Ebert’s comment in an irate, if not completely coherent tweet: “I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of [expletive] roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents. … About a jackass drunk driving and his is one, [expletive] you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat [expletive] mouth!”

Ebert received immediate criticism about the tweet, with gossip blogger Perez Hilton declaring it “insensitive.” Ebert defended himself, later tweeting, “Perez Hilton’s readers agree with me and not with Perez about my tweet on Ryan Dunn. He drank, he drove, 2 people died.”

——————————————————————————————

UPDATE: It appears that Ebert’s Facebook page is back up and running. Even though the page was only down for about an hour, it looks like the story here remains the relative ease at which upset parties can take down someone’s page.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: It looks like a couple of people upset about Roger Ebert’s comments yesterday have taken the only action they can – tattling to Facebook. It appears that the individuals have used Facebook’s page complaint mechanism and reported Ebert’s page as malicious or obscene.

Yesterday, following the death of Jackass star Ryan Dunn in a car wreck, Chicago Sun-Times critic Roger Ebert took to Twitter to express his feelings. After first saying “Ryan Dunn, RIP” Ebert attacked Dunn’s poor decision making. He tweeted that “friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.” There are multiple reports that Dunn was drinking prior to the crash. His passenger was also killed in the incident.

The comment sparked a debate across the interwebs – was it too soon? First off, was Ebert correct? Even in the wake of a tragic death, should we not forget that Dunn (allegedly) chose to drink and drive, endangering the lives of others? Many believed the comments were callous no matter what you feel about drunk driving, as Dunn has friends and family who cared about him. Others say Ebert simply spoke the truth.

Comments on an article about the incident yesterday on WebProNews suggested that most felt that Ebert’s remarks were insensitive. In defending himself, however, Ebert linked to Perez Hilton’s article on his tweet. As Ebert suggests, the majority of those commenters feel that his remark was justified and true –

Fast forward to the last hour, and Ebert tweets about his Facebook account –

He posted this picture of Facebook’s notice of his account removal –

This isn’t the first time Roger Ebert has run into Facebook trouble. Pranksters have had his Facebook page taken down before with complaints, based on opinions of Ebert’s that the didn’t like. Also, Facebook once removed his blog post detailing his jaw surgery, calling it “abusive content.” Ebert said that his blog entry had been “idiotically blocked” by Facebook.

[Numerologically, a person's life lesson number stands for themself.  Roger Ebert was born on June 18th, 1942.  6 + 18 +1+9+4+2 = 40 = Roger Ebert's life lesson number.

Bam's 40 year indicates that he will be interacting with Roger Ebert (whose life lesson number is 40).]

40 year + 5 (May) = 45 = his personal month (from May 28th, 2011 to June 27th, 2011) = Ouch.  That’s gotta hurt.  The f*** word.

[So the combination of Bam's 40 year and 45 month indicates his actual experience.  He experienced the deep pain (45) of Ryan Dunn's death, and he told Roger Ebert (40 (his life lesson number)) "F*** you!" (45).]

45 month + 20 (20th of the month on Monday June 20th, 2011) = 65 = his personal day = Swearing.  Cussing.

Surprise ... Novak Djokovic's pre-Wimbledon media conference was gatecrashed by Caroline Wozniacki.

June 20th, 2011

Novak Djokovic faced a surprise grilling from Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday as  the women’s world No.1 gatecrashed his pre-Wimbledon media conference. Djokovic  was at a press conference before the start of the grass-court grand slam on  Monday when fun-loving Wozniacki took a seat in the interview room and began to  fire light-hearted questions at the Serb. Both players have well-earned  reputations as locker room jokers and their ”interview” lasted several  minutes, to the amusement of the assembled media. Wozniacki asked Australian  Open champion Djokovic how he planned to bounce back after the end of his  43-match winning run. Djokovic, beaten by Roger Federer in the French Open  semi-finals, replied: ”You know what? I will try to look up to some women  players who have been so consistent with their wins, for example like Caroline  Wozniacki. I don’t know if you’ve heard about her. She’s been winning so much.  She’s become a role model for all of us ATP players. So I’m going to try to look  at some of her matches and try to break this losing streak of one.” When  Wozniacki asked who his favourite female player was, Djokovic revealed that the  friends are neighbours in Monaco as he said: ”I think I already discovered one  of my favourite women’s players. I just said her name. She’s actually my  neighbour as well.  She’s a really nice girl. She’s a great entertainer.”

The authorities here are obviously nervous. My crew and I are sitting in a local government building being questioned by six propaganda officials.

One of them is scribbling down our credentials in a worn pocket-sized notebook. My producer, Steven Jiang, is talking non-stop to one officer who looks especially nonplussed.

We traveled to the manufacturing town of Xintang to investigate why thousands of migrant workers suddenly took to the streets just a week ago.

We knew the unrest was triggered by what appeared to be a minor event — a pregnant migrant worker and her husband got in a scuffle with city officials and she ended up falling on the ground.

However, the ferocity by which this dispute exploded in a massive conflagration, pitting thousands of enraged workers against hundreds of riot police, took many by surprise.


//

Unrest in Chinese ‘jeans capital’
//

//

//

RELATED TOPICS

The unrest seems to belie the image of China as a bustling economy going from strength to strength, enriching the lives of millions across the country, especially in the industrial south. But the problem is many people feel they are not getting their fair share of the rapid growth.

Since we arrived, the streets look relatively calm here. People are out shopping. Cars are on the roads.

However, the frustrations the workers feel is palpable.

We visited a job center and, for the first time since I started reporting in China years ago, workers approached us unfazed by our cameras. They were unafraid to vent their grievances to foreign TV journalists even as the police looked on.

The workers complained of the lack of jobs, unscrupulous bosses hoarding back pay, and corrupt local officials.

In China, with its one-party government, getting people to speak openly about the authorities is challenging and extremely rare, especially with the cameras rolling. It struck me these workers must feel no one else is listening.

Economic uncertainty is the root cause of China’s wave of discontent. However, unlike in the Middle East, people here are not calling for a new government. What they want is a way to right wrongs and not to be forgotten.

We had been filming for several hours before the propaganda officials stopped us at a jeans factory to take us in for questioning. They told us Xintang had just been declared a special zone requiring additional permissions above and beyond our press credentials to report here.

We apply for new permits but, not surprisingly, they aren’t granted and we are told we have to leave.

We need more video footage of the town so we negotiate a few more minutes of filming — but we have to be escorted and are asked not to film the increasing security presence

Migrant workers had told us more police patrol the town at night. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to see that for ourselves.

Monday May 30th, 2011

There’s a Storm currently brewing in Toronto – a child whose parents are raising
hir without revealing hir sex to the world. Four-month-old Storm is being billed
by the media as a “genderless
child
,” which isn’t entirely accurate. In all likelihood, Storm has a gender
– we just don’t know what it is yet.

And truly, it’s none of our
business. Most of us don’t even know this family, so they really owe us no
explanation as to the sex, gender, or even favorite foods of their children. But
that doesn’t stop the media and the blogosphere from its relentless criticism of
these parents and its hand-wringing concern over the fate of this poor child.

One blogger even went so far as to call Storm a “genderless
‘It’ child
.” Now that certainly shows compassion for the baby, doesn’t it?
“It” is the most dehumanizing word in the English language for a person – and as
someone who has been called that as an adult, I can’t imagine starting out in
the world with the offensive pronoun already on my permanent Internet
record.
I was briefly interviewed about Storm by Jim
Richards on Newstalk 1010, a radio
station out of Toronto, but, as is the case with all radio talk shows, you
really need your 15-second elevator speech memorized, because you don’t get a
chance to discuss the situation in depth. This isn’t Richards’ fault – it’s just
the way of talk radio and the fast-paced, sound-byte world we live
in.

Richards was concerned about Storm. Although he favored allowing a
child to choose which gendered things that child was interested in, he also
favored raising the child in a gendered manner consistent with the child’s sex
assigned at birth, and then taking a wait-and-see attitude with regard to the
child’s gender identity and expression.

I actually agree with him.
Western culture (and many other cultures) assigns gender based on primary and
secondary sex characteristics, and it is likely that Storm has some
characteristics now that indicate a physical maleness or femaleness.

And
even though Storm’s parents intend to home school the child – or, as they
prefer, to “unschool” the child at home – Storm will eventually have to go out
into the world, where zie will be exposed to cultural gender expectations. Storm
will also eventually go through puberty, and this puberty will cause changes in
Storm’s appearance that will dictate how others respond to hir, as well as how
others expect zie will respond to them.

Regardless of Storm’s internal
gender identity and external gender expression, zie will need to be equipped to
deal with these cultural expectations – to embrace them, reject them, or accept
them with stipulations. And even prior to that, it is likely that Storm will
start to manifest gendered behaviors and preferences.

And that, I think,
is the crux of the matter and what will prove ultimately to be crucial to
Storm’s development, identity, and well-being – whether or not Storm’s parents
allow for and accept any gendered behaviors that Storm begins to display.

While I personally think that Storm should be given a gender and then
allowed to go wherever hir true gender identity takes hir, it’s really none of
my business. I think Storm will be fine as long as hir parents accept whatever
gendered behaviors Storm prefers to adopt.

If there is any real damage
to be done, it will occur if Storm’s parents refuse to permit the child’s
adoption of any culturally gendered behaviors to which the child gravitates and
with which zie is comfortable. If that happens – if Storm’s parents attempt to
lure hir away from displaying any gendered preferences or flat-out refuse to
allow gendered behaviors when the child exhibits them – then it will be as
detrimental as attempting to “change” trans children by forcing the to play with
“gender-appropriate” toys or forcing them to dress in “gender-appropriate”
clothing.

At this time, Storm’s parents have given no indication that
they will forbid the child from expressing any internal gender identity that zie
feels. As long as they stick to that philosophy, I think Storm will be okay, and
the major damage will come when zie becomes old enough to see hir life dissected
across the Internet.

Until then, zie won’t know the difference – and
neither will we.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Storm

19 (S is the 19th letter of the alphabet) + 20 (t is the 20th letter of the alphabet) + 15 (o is the 15th letter of the alphabet) = 54

So from ages zero to twenty-seven Storm has the number 54 going on.

54 = Gender identity.

Dianna Agron answers the fans who have been wondering what she was trying to say by wearing a Likes Girls shirt during the Glee Live concert yesterday.

Yesterday was June 11th, and we were tackling our newest location,  Toronto! We had finished our first concert of the day, and I was about  to take a moment to relax before the second. On the way to our dressing  rooms, I passed a stack of shirts lined up on the merchandise tables.  The white T’s were modeled after shirts we wore in a performance set to  Lady Gaga’s, “Born This Way.”

I was not raised in a family that accepted prejudice or  hatred. For that, I thank my Mom and Dad each and every day. Look, we  are human, we make mistakes. I will gladly shout from the rooftops that I  AM NOT PERFECT. Nor will I ever be. But I can happily say that to my  knowledge, I do not ever intentionally cause people pain. I love my  family, my friends, my co-workers…and they all consist of girls AND  boys. I do tell them that I love them. Yesterday, during our second  show,  Instead of wearing my usual shirt during “Born This Way” I  decided to wear one that said “Likes Girls”. It should actually have  read, “Loves Girls”, because I do. The women in my life give me things  that the men in my life can’t. And vice-versa. No, I am not a lesbian,  yet if I were, I hope that the people in my life could embrace it  whole-heartedly. And let me tell you, I can easily spill (quite  comfortably) what I admire, respect and think is beautiful about any of  the women in my life. Piece of cake!

Last night, I wanted to do something  to show my respect and  love for the GLBT community. Support that people could actually see.  Which is why I decided to change my shirt for the show. I happened to  read a few comments that were posted on twitter. Many of you asked,  “why?” This is my response. I am not asking for you to agree with what I  am saying, but if you are listening, thank you. That is all I can ask.  And a step further would be to take a moment to (honestly) answer the  questions that I have raised. We can’t always put ourselves in someone  else’s shoes. But we can try.

To read the rest of Dianna’s statement for her support of the LGBT community, check out her Tumblr.

Russian colonel who killed Chechen girl is shot dead

A Russian colonel who was jailed for
murdering a Chechen teenager has been shot dead in central Moscow.

Yuri Budanov was killed on Friday by an unidentified gunman on Komsomolsky
Prospekt, a busy avenue in the capital, state prosecutors said.

In 2003 a court upheld his 10-year jail sentence for strangling an
18-year-old girl in war-torn Chechnya in 2000.

But he was released early from jail in January 2009 – a move that angered
human rights activists.

Russian media say the gunman, wearing a blue jacket and hood, attacked
Budanov at about 1230 (0830 GMT), shooting him six times with a pistol, then
fled by car.

The Mitsubishi Lancer getaway car was later found abandoned and on fire, the
reports said. A pistol and silencer were found inside.

High-profile case

Mother of victim Elza Kungayeva - 2001 file photo
Kungayeva’s mother Roza Bashayeva moved to a refugee camp in Ingushetia

The Budanov trial was big news in Russia, where very few officers have been
prosecuted over abuses committed during Russia’s two campaigns against Chechen
separatist rebels.

He was the only senior officer to be jailed for crimes committed in
Chechnya.

He was found guilty of the kidnapping and strangling of Elza Kungayeva in
2000. An allegation that he had also raped her was dropped.

The murder provoked outrage in Chechnya, where many civilians have died at
the hands of Russian forces and the local pro-Moscow militia, during the long
war against rebels.

At his re-trial in 2003 Budanov accused Russian media of having swayed the
judge, insisting that he was “a Russian soldier who defended his country for the
past 20 years”.

Budanov was acquitted at his first trial in December 2002, when the court
accepted his plea that he had been temporarily insane at the time of the
killing.

But the Russian supreme court ordered a re-trial, where he was found to have
been of sound mind at the time. He was found guilty and stripped of his rank and
the Order of Courage, which he had won in breakaway Chechnya.

Budanov told the court he believed that Kungayeva was a Chechen sniper and

Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf has given a rare interview in an attempt to  quash a swelling scandal, flatly rejecting media reports he had visited strip  clubs and even had indirect contact with organised crime.

In a long interview with the TT news agency published late on Monday, Sweden’s  head of state denied recent reported claims from a former mafia member, Mille  Markovic, that he had pictures in his possession showing the king in a sex club  in the same shot as two naked women.

“No, it is impossible that they exist,” the king insisted, stressing that “it  is also difficult to comment on something one has not seen and no one else has  seen either.”

<iframe id=”dcAd-1-3″ src=”http://ad-apac.doubleclick.net/adi/onl.smh.lands/lands/people;ctype=article;cat1=people;cat=lands;pos=3;sz=300×250;tile=3;ord=5.5560173E7?&#8221; width=’300′ height=’250′ scrolling=”no” marginheight=”0″ marginwidth=”0″ allowtransparency=”true” frameborder=”0″> <Scandal has “hurt confidence” in the monarchy … Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia.

The royal court has demanded that public broadcaster TV4, which in a report  two weeks ago about the alleged pictures said a journalist had seen them, show  the shots to prove there is any substance to the claims.

The TV4 report and a new book about another shady figure from Sweden’s  underworld alleged friends of the king had been willing to pay large sums of  money to block the publication of pictures of the monarch in compromising  situations.

One of the king’s childhood friends, Ander Lettstroem, admitted in a  statement last week he had contacted people involved with organised crime, but  insisted it was purely his own initiative and had nothing to do with Carl XVI  Gustaf.

In Monday’s interview, the king reiterated a previous statement that he had  no knowledge of Lettstroem’s actions and had nothing to do with his  confession.

“That he has been in contact with such people … is not appropriate. That’s  something one could wish he had not done, I must say,” he said, adding that “I  have distanced myself completely from his actions and thereby also from our  acquaintanceship.”

He admitted the scandal had “of course hurt confidence in me, and even  confidence in the monarchy and also Sweden.”

“That is something I really regret, but it is something I will fix, and I  will work double as hard in the future,” he said.

The latest scandal comes just over six months after a tell-all biography of  the king hit the bookstands, causing uproar with its descriptions of his  participation in wild parties and affairs with young women.

The allegations also come shortly after the royal court announced the king’s  wife, German-born Queen Silvia, had launched a probe into her father’s Nazi  past.

When asked about claims in the book he had visited several specific strip  clubs, the king on Monday was often on the defensive, responding repeatedly with  “No,” and “I have no idea.”

Following the latest allegations, several polls have shown that a majority of  Swedes would like the king to soon abdicate and hand over the throne to Crown  Princess Victoria, who has long been far more popular than her father.

The king, who reached the official retirement age of 65 last month,  reiterated on Monday he has no plans to step aside in favour of his 33-year-old  daughter.

“There is a tradition and custom and that is not what is going to happen,” he  said.

This shot from a NASA fireball-watching camera shows a meteor over Macon, Ga., on the evening of May 20, 2011.

02 June 2011 Time: 08:00 AM ET

A brilliant meteor blazed through the sky above Georgia recently, and two NASA fireball-monitoring cameras caught the dramatic display on video.

The meteor was caused by a human-size chunk of an unknown comet. It was the brightest meteor yet recorded by NASA’s fireball-observing network — based at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. — in its nearly three years of operation, officials said.

The 6-foot-wide (1.8-meter) space rock barrelled into Earth’s atmosphere at 10:47 p.m. EDT on May 20 (0247 GMT on May 21), about 66 miles (106 kilometers) above the city of Macon, Ga.

Two NASA all-sky cameras, both located in northwest Georgia, tracked the resulting meteor and captured it on video. Analysis of the videos allowed scientists to calculate the basics of the object’s speed, trajectory, mass and orbit.

Ground track of meteor's path on May 20, 2011 over Macon, Georgia.

When it entered the atmosphere, the comet chunk was traveling northwest at about 86,000 mph (138,404 kph), researchers said. At this velocity, the boulder-size “dirty snowball” possessed an energy or striking power somewhere between 500 and 1,000 tons of TNT.

But that striking power was never realized on the ground. The Macon meteoroid was too small, and made of the wrong kind of stuff, to survive the trip through Earth’s atmosphere, researchers said. Indeed, the video shows four distinct flares emanating from the comet chunk as it broke apart multiple times.

After a last burst of light, the meteor burned up completely 38 miles (61 km) above the town of Villa Rica, Ga., officials said.

The Macon meteor qualifies as a fireball, which is officially defined as a meteor that shines brighter than Venus in the sky.

Fireballs like the May 20 event are impressive but not terribly unusual. Objects as big as washing machines typically fall into Earth’s atmosphere on a monthly basis, but most of them burn up before reaching the ground. Many of the resulting fireballs are not seen because they occur over remote areas or over oceans (which cover more than two-thirds of Earth’s surface).

A robotic fireball-monitoring network

NASA’s meteor-watching network, run by the Meteoroid Environment Office at Marshall, currently consists of four robotic cameras: the two in Georgia, one in Huntsville, and one in southern Tennessee. These “smart” cameras are linked into a computer system that automatically analyzes their video, then calculates relevant information about incoming space rocks’ trajectories and orbits.

Researchers hope to place a total of 15 such cameras in various locations throughout the eastern United States, which has few such systems, NASA officials said.

The overall goal of the camera system is to learn much more about the pieces of space rock that strike Earth and our atmosphere — how big they are, what they’re made of and where they come from, researchers have said.

For most comics, filling three-fourths of the Ha Ha Room in Nowheresville, Large-Square-State, is an accomplishment worth celebrating … alone, of course, in a guest room at the Holiday Inn with a bottle of gin.

Not the case for Russell Peters. In fact, as one of the top-earning comics in the business, Peters enjoys worldwide popularity that’s hard to match, selling out arenas (yes, arenas) from Canada to Australia and everywhere in between.

Focusing on race and class, Peters draws from being Indian and Canadian, and he believes audiences around the globe like him because he’s an outsider.

“It’s like I’m reporting live from a party I shouldn’t be at,” he says. “There’s the cool kids, and then there’s the nerdy guy who snuck in wearing a hat. I’m the nerdy kid who’s wearing the hat.”

What makes Peters’ success even more amazing is that, aside from the occasional stand-up comedy special, you probably haven’t seen him on TV or in movies.

Sure, he’s done a bit of acting, but a quick glance at the titles on his IMDb page doesn’t reveal any blockbusters. That said, “The Legend of Awesomest Maximus” does stand out as a potential must-see. I mean, after all, it features Ian Ziering playing a character named Testiclees.

So it must be good!

Admission: Evan Rachel Wood reveals she is bisexual in a new interview for Esquire magazine

April 19th, 2011  2:23 PM

It seems to be a case of life imitating art for Evan Rachel Wood.

The 23-year-old actress, who plays lesbian vampire queen Sophie-Anne in TV hit True Blood, has admitted she dates women in real life too. 

‘I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl,’ she tells Esquire magazine in a new interview.

The star replies ‘yes,’ after being asked if she dates women, adding she is ‘kind of like the guy when it comes to girls.

‘I’m the dominant one,’ she says.  ‘I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.

‘I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls… I’m into androgyny in general.’ 

Wood also tells the magazine she would ‘marry’ her Mildred Pierce co-star Kate Winslet if she could.

The actress plays Winslet’s daughter Veda Pierce in the five-part HBO mini series.

The star, who split from rocker Marilyn Manson last year, also addressed people’s attitude to their relationship.

‘I think one of the things that freaked people out so much is that we looked so different,’ she says.

File:Kate Middleton at the Garter Procession 2008.jpg

Catherine ElizabethKateMiddleton (born 9 January 1982) is the fiancée of Prince William of Wales. Their wedding will take place on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, with the day declared a bank holiday in the UK.

Middleton grew up in Berkshire and, after attending Marlborough College, went to the University of St Andrews, where she met Prince William, also studying there, in 2001.

Since her relationship with Prince William began, Middleton has received widespread media attention and there was much speculation that they would eventually marry. On 16 November 2010, the office of the Prince of Wales at Clarence House announced their engagement. The date and location of the wedding were announced one week later.

Middleton was born at Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, Berkshire.  She is the eldest of three children born to Carole Elizabeth (born 1955, née Goldsmith), a flight attendant, and Michael Francis Middleton (born 1949), a flight dispatcher and later an airline officer for British Airways. Her parents married on 21 June 1980 at the Parish Church of Dorney, Buckinghamshire  and in 1987 founded Party Pieces, a mail order company that sells party supplies and decorations.

Middleton’s paternal family came from Leeds, West Yorkshire, and her great-grandmother Olivia was a member of the Lupton family, who were active for generations in Leeds in commercial and municipal work.  Through Olivia Lupton, her ancestors include The Rev. Thomas Davis, a Church of England hymn-writer.  Carole Middleton’s maternal family, the Harrisons, were working class labourers and miners from County Durham.  Middleton has two siblings, Philippa Charlotte, known as “Pippa”, and James William.  Pippa Middleton, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, has received press coverage since her sister became famous, with focus on her relationships and lifestyle.  Middleton’s family were in Amman, Jordan from May 1984 to September 1986, where Middleton went to an English language nursery school, before returning to their home in Berkshire.

After her return from Amman, Middleton was educated at St. Andrew’s School in the village of Pangbourne in Berkshire, then briefly at Downe House, before moving on to Marlborough College, a co-educational independent school in Wiltshire, followed by the University of St Andrews in Fife, where she met William and graduated with a 2:1 (Hons) in the History of Art.

In November 2006, Middleton accepted a position as an accessory buyer with clothing chain Jigsaw.

In September 2007, it was reported that Middleton was planning to give up her job as an accessory buyer to become a professional photographer. Some months later, it was announced that she intended to take private classes with photographer Mario Testino, who had taken several well-known photographs of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons. Middleton and Testino apparently were introduced by Prince William. Testino later denied that Middleton was going to be working for him. In December 2007, it was also reported that Middleton had moved in with Prince William at Clarence House, the residence of the Prince of Wales in London.  Clarence House later denied this.

On 17 May 2008, Middleton attended the wedding of William’s cousin Peter Phillips to Autumn Kelly, which the prince did not attend.  On 19 July 2008, Middleton attended the wedding of Lady Rose Windsor and George Gilman. William was away on military operations in the Caribbean, serving aboard the HMS Iron Duke.

On 28 February 2010, The Times reported that Middleton was pursuing an invasion of privacy suit against photographer Niraj Tanna who took pictures of her over Christmas 2009, although they were never published in Britain. Middleton has not pursued the claim against the photographer.

Middleton has been featured in several best-dressed lists and was selected by The Daily Telegraph as the “Most Promising Newcomer” in its 2006 list of style winners and losers.  Tatler placed her at #8 on its yearly listing of the top ten style icons in 2007.  She was also featured in People magazine’s 2007 and 2010 best-dressed lists.  Middleton was named as one of Richard Blackwell‘s ten “Fabulous Fashion Independents” of 2007.  In June 2008 Style.com selected Middleton as its monthly beauty icon.  In July 2008 Middleton was included in Vanity Fair‘s international best-dressed list.

Middleton’s unsubstantiated status as the girlfriend of William brought her widespread media coverage in the UK and abroad, and she was often photographed on her daily outings. On 17 October 2005, she complained through her lawyer about harassment from the media, stating that she had done nothing significant to warrant such publicity.

In February 2006, it was announced that Middleton would receive her own 24-hour security detail supplied by the Royalty and Diplomatic Protection Department. This fuelled further speculation that she and William would soon be engaged, since she would not, otherwise, be entitled to this service. No engagement occurred, and Middleton was not granted an allowance to fund this security. Media attention increased around the time of Middleton’s 25th birthday in January 2007, prompting warnings from both Charles and William and from Middleton’s lawyers, who threatened legal action. Two newspaper groups, News International, which publishes The Times and The Sun, and the Guardian Media Group, publishers of The Guardian, decided to refrain from publishing paparazzi photographs of her.

Middleton attended at least one event as an official royal guest, William’s Passing Out Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on 15 December 2006.

On 14 April 2007 The Sun newspaper broke a “world exclusive” suggesting that Prince William and Middleton had split up.  Other media outlets such as the BBC confirmed the story as the day progressed. The couple decided to break up during a holiday in the Swiss resort of Zermatt.

Clarence House made only one comment about the relationship’s end, according to The Times, stating, “We don’t comment on Prince William’s private life.”  Newspapers speculated about the reasons for the split, although these reports relied on anonymous sources. The original report in The Sun quoted a “close friend of the couple” as saying that Middleton felt William had not been paying her enough attention. The paper highlighted reports that William had been spending time with other young women, and said the Prince, aged 24 at the time of the split, felt he was too young to marry.

A report in the Daily Mail blamed a desire by royal courtiers not to “hurry along” a marriage announcement, and William’s desire to enjoy his bachelor status within his Army career. The Mail also suggested that William’s friend Guy Pelly encouraged the Prince to take a “careless approach” to relationships. The same article suggested that Middleton had “expected too much” in wanting William to demonstrate his commitment to her.

In June 2007, Middleton and William insisted they were “just good friends” following reports of a reconciliation.  Middleton and her family attended the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium; she and William sat two rows apart.  The couple were subsequently seen together in public on a number of occasions, and several news sources, including the BBC and the Daily Mail, stated that they had “rekindled their relationship.”  Middleton also joined William and Charles on a deerstalking expedition at Balmoral and attended the wedding of William’s cousin, Peter Phillips, even though William, due to a prior commitment, did not. In April 2008, Middleton accompanied William when he was awarded his RAF wings at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell.  On 16 June 2008, Middleton attended William’s investiture into the Order of the Garter along with the Royal Family.

Prince William and Kate Middleton became engaged in October 2010 in Kenya, East Africa, during a 10-day trip to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to celebrate William’s passing his RAF helicopter search and rescue course.  Clarence House announced the engagement on 16 November 2010.

The couple are to marry in Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.

It is customary for royal men to receive a dukedom when they marry; possible dukedoms for William after his marriage are Clarence, Cambridge, Sussex, Kendal, Avondale, and Strathearn.  As the wife of a royal duke and prince, Middleton would assume the title of duchess.

In Letters Patent dated 21 August 1996 (shortly before the divorce of the Prince and Princess of Wales) it was acknowledged that, “by convention”, the wife of a son or grandson of the Sovereign is entitled to the style title or attribute of “Royal Highness”.  If William were not given a title then, after the wedding, Middleton would, by convention (unless explicitly vetoed by the Queen), be known as Her Royal Highness Princess William of Wales taking her husband’s first name on marriage (as with Princess Michael of Kent).  If, however, William is given a title, she would be known as “Her Royal Highness The Duchess [or other rank if appropriate] of N”.

On 16 February 2011, Clarence House announced that Middleton’s and William’s first royal tour of Canada would take place in July 2011.  She was formally introduced to public life on 24 February 2011, some two months before the wedding, when she and William attended a lifeboat naming ceremony in Trearddur, North Wales.

State Representative Nick Milroy got into a confrontation with police Thursday night.

The video shows Superior Native, and South Range Representative, Milroy, attempting to get into the Capitol.

The police officer who was guarding the door then tackles the representative.

No one is allowed inside the Capitol until Monday morning, due to a judge’s ruling.

Milroy says he wanted to get some of his clothes from inside the building.

Controversial former military chief and Energy Secretary Angelo T. Reyes died Tuesday morning in an apparent suicide inside the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City, police said. (Photo by MARK BALMORES)

February 8, 2011, 9:03am

Former Energy Chief Angelo Reyes was reportedly shot in the chest. Reyes was rushed to the Quirino Hospital in Quezon City and reports have it that he died at around 8:30 a.m. He was 65. He is survived by his wife and 5 children.

UPDATE: Reyes was reported to have committed suicide. According to the Eastern Police District, Reyes visited his mother’s grave at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City where he shot himself on the spot.

A preliminary showed that Reyes had a bullet wound in the heart.

As per the Quirino Hospital sources, they tried to revive Reyes for 45 minutes before declaring him as expired.

SECOND UPDATE:

MANILA, Philippines – Controversial former military chief and Energy Secretary Angelo T. Reyes died Tuesday morning in an apparent suicide inside the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City, police said.

Supt. Alfredo M. Calama-an, Eastern Police District – District Operations and Plans Divisions chief, said the 65-year-old Reyes reportedly shot himself in the chest using a Caliber .45 pistol which pierced through his heart.

He said Reyes, who was with his two sons, an aide and driver, visiting his mother’s grave at the memorial park Tuesday, was immediately taken to the Quirino Labor Memorial Hospital, where he was declared dead at about 8:32 a.m. by attending doctors.

Police Senior Supt. Francisco Soria Manalo, EPD district director, said they will still wait for the autopsy report to be provided by the Philippine National Police-Crime Laboratory regarding Reyes’ death before they can make any statement about it.

He added that Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) from the EPD was still at the scene as of press time conducting an investigation.

“We are still waiting for the report. As soon as we have it, we will provide the details (surrounding his death),” Manalo told TEMPO/Manila Bulletin in an interview.

Manalo, who went to the scene together with Superintendent Romeo  Magsalos, Marikina Police Office chief, said that Reyes visited his mother’s grave to pay his respects to her at about 7 a.m.

According to initial investigation, the former military chief then asked his sons, his aide and bodyguard to leave him for a while. A few seconds later, a gun shot was then heard with Reyes falling to the ground with blood all over him.

According to witnesses, Reyes was holding a book on Donald Trump titled “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” before allegedly committing suicide.

Reyes, it was recalled, became AFP chief of staff from 1999 to 2001. Shortly after his retirement from the military service in March 1, 2001, he was appointed as Defense Secretary by then former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Reyes, also a key figure during the People Power 2 that toppled former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada from power in January 2001, has been in the hot seat as of late due to allegations that received P50 million in “send-off” money after he retired from the AFP as claimed by retired Lt. Col. George Rabusa.

Reyes, a graduate of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class 1966, is married to Teresita P. Reyes with whom he has five sons, Pablo, Angelito, Marc, Carlo and Judd.

The two men met through the Internet, fate and a 2008 BMW. The car was an M3 coupe, a fully loaded speedster with an eight-cylinder engine and an Interlagos Blue Metallic exterior.

The owner, Akeem Ajimotokan, worked in the procurement office at Columbia University. He was the original owner of the car, and he was asking $46,000.

The prospective buyer, identified on a bill of sale found inside the BMW as Barion A. Blake, was an ex-convict with previous arrests for stealing BMWs. He apparently had a different price in mind.

After a series of events that included a police car chase and a collision with a yellow cab, the BMW was found in Upper Manhattan on Wednesday morning, its front end crushed. Mr. Blake, who the police believe was driving the BMW at the time of the collision, was gone, but the police officers examining the wreck found Mr. Ajimotokan.

He was in the trunk — alive, barely, though he was bound, with multiple stab wounds and with his ear partially severed.

Mr. Ajimotokan, 33, was taken to Harlem Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, was placed on a ventilator and was in a coma on Thursday, the police said. Meanwhile, an all-out search was on for Mr. Blake, 30, who had been released from jail in April after serving time in New Jersey for assault, said Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman.

“The motive appears to be the robbery of a high-end car,” Mr. Browne said.

But many investigative gaps were still being filled in.

It was not immediately clear when Mr. Ajimotokan first placed his ad, with his phone number, on Cars.com; it also was not known when Mr. Blake met Mr. Ajimotokan. But something clearly had gone awry for at least several hours before the accident in Upper Manhattan.

At about 3 am, a uniformed officer with the Nassau County Police Department spotted the BMW pulled over on the side of the road, near Jericho Turnpike. The officer saw “two people outside of it,” Mr. Browne said, suggesting that it was Mr. Blake and an accomplice.

“It looks like they are swapping license plates on the vehicle,” Mr. Browne said.

The officer, from the Third Precinct, went to inquire, but the two men jumped in the car and took off westbound on Jericho Turnpike, and then southbound on the Cross Island Parkway, Mr. Browne said. The officer followed the BMW in a marked squad car but lost control on the snow-covered streets, and his car flipped over.

The officer was taken to a hospital for evaluation; a spokeswoman for the Nassau Police Department described his injuries as not life-threatening.

The BMW was next seen in Inwood at 9 am on Wednesday. Witnesses, including the yellow cab driver, said that the suspect tried to drive away after the accident, but that the BMW’s undercarriage got hung up on a concrete divider as he attempted a U-turn at Dyckman Street and 10th Avenue.

When the responding officers from the 34th Precinct looked inside the BMW, they saw several .38-caliber bullets sprinkled in the car’s blood-spattered interior.

The car had only one license plate, affixed to the rear, and the officers had determined that it had been stolen from a 1999 Toyota Camry left in a parking lot in Queens.

They saw that a piece of the rear seat, separating the car’s cabin from its trunk, appeared to be missing. Then they found something worse: Inside the trunk was Mr. Ajimotokan, clinging to life. He was unconscious, having been stabbed several times in the head and body. His hands had been tied behind his back with plastic zip ties.

They found a handwritten bill of sale, dated Jan. 25, to Mr. Blake, of 10th Avenue in Manhattan, from Mr. Ajimotokan. Investigators are examining the possibility that the car was stolen from Mr. Ajimotokan’s home in West New York, NJ It is unclear if he was assaulted there or at some later point.

“We have reason to believe the individual who ran from the car, or fled the scene, is the same one as the purported buyer,” Mr. Browne said. “Right now, we are working on the investigative premise that Mr. Ajimotokan was lured to some location on the belief there was going to be a purchase of the vehicle and was instead assaulted and put in the trunk and the car stolen.”

Linda M. Foglia, a spokeswoman for the New York State Department of Correctional Services, said that Mr. Blake has also used the alias Adrian Burnett, and has been convicted under both names. Under his alias, Mr. Blake was convicted in February 2001 for four crimes between June 1999 and July 2000, in Nassau County, Manhattan and Queens.

“At one point, he stole a 2000 BMW car, valued at $80,000,” Ms. Foglia said. “Then, he possessed a stolen 2001 BMW.”

Another time, she said, he stole “another BMW worth $79,000.”

In October 2004, Mr. Blake, 6-foot-7 and 215 pounds, was released into the custody of New Jersey authorities.

He returned to the New York State correctional system on February 2, 2007, to serve two to four years for a second-degree assault on a police officer stemming from an episode in April 2006 in Queens, Ms. Foglia said.
No one at Mr. Ajimotokan’s residence could immediately be reached by phone.

Robert Hornsby, a spokesman at Columbia University, where Mr. Ajimotokan is employed, said the university did not comment on police investigations.

“Because of the police situation on this, we don’t ever comment,” he said. “If there is additional information, it would have to come from the NYPD. first.”

Moment of realisation: Finishing the circle, Duke draws his gun and orders everyone - except the board members - to leave

December 14, 2010 9:40 p.m. EST

Clay Duke sat quietly through the first portion of the Bay District Schools, Florida, school board meeting Tuesday afternoon as local children were honored for their achievements.

When it came time for citizens to bring up issues, the 56-year-old resident calmly approached the front.

He spray painted a red “V” with a circle around it on the wall, brandished a small-caliber handgun and ordered the room cleared at a Panama City schools building.

“Six men stay. Everyone else leave,” the burly gunman said.

Moments later, Ginger Littleton, a board member, returned to the room and swung a purse at him. She ended up on the ground after the two struggled. The gunman cursed her, but did not open fire and he let her leave the room.

Someone was going to die, he said.

At that point, Duke, as seen on the dramatic live internet feed provided by CNN affiliates WJHG and WMBB, began a rambling discourse that included the apparent firing of his wife and sales taxes.

The confrontation ended in the gunman identified as Duke calmly firing at the school officials, being wounded and, according to police, taking his own life.

At first, school board members and Superintendent Bill Husfelt tried to reason with Duke, who had a criminal record. They talked about possibly finding a job for Duke’s wife or looking into the case.

Husfelt told the gunman that he likely signed the termination papers, but didn’t recall the circumstances.

“I’m the one who signed the papers,” Husfelt. “Let them go,” he said referring to the school board members.

At one point, Husfelt said, “I don’t want anybody to get hurt. I’ve got a feeling that what you want, is you want the cops to come in and kill you because you are mad. Because you said you are going to die.”

“But why? This isn’t worth it,” the superintendent told him. “This is a problem.”

The gunman then pointed the pistol at the official.

“Please don’t. Please don’t. Please,” Husfelt said.

The gunman opened fire at Husfelt and school board members. He missed them all, even though he was at close range, said Lee Stafford, director of student services of Bay District Schools. Duke said, “I’m going to kill [unintelligible],” while he fired.

Mike Jones, chief of security for the school system and a retired police officer, exchanged fire with Duke, who was wounded and rolled to the ground. Duke turned his gun on himself, dying of a fatal gunshot to the head, authorities said. Husfelt called Jones a “hero.”

The gunman was declared dead at a local hospital. An autopsy is expected Wednesday.

Police and school officials were left to piece together what happened.

“I’m sure they never expected this kind of event to occur,” Sgt. Jeffrey Becker of the Panama City Police Department.

The superintendent later related the event as being “surreal,” Becker said.

Husfelt told reporters that Duke had almost a smile on his face. “He made up his mind. You could tell he was going to die.”

The superintendent said he believes the gunman used a combination of live bullets and blanks. But police said live bullets were used.

Husfelt told “AC360″ Tuesday night that the gunman was “just mixed up” and that he tried to calm him down. “I knew the police were on their way.”

“You knew he had something in mind he was going to do and it would not end well,” Husfelt said.

The superintendent said he wanted to protect the school board members, but Duke did not want to talk.

“The good Lord was standing in front of me,” said the school chief, adding authorities found two bullet holes behind his desk.

Police have a solid lead on Duke’s motive, Becker said, but were not prepared Tuesday night to release it.

The investigation includes Duke’s assertions that his wife had been terminated by the school district. Police were talking with Duke’s wife, Becker said.

School officials said they were unaware of the significance of the spray painting.

But a Facebook page belonging to a Clay Duke has a profile photo of a “V” in a red circle, a logo that is used in the movie “V for Vendetta.”

According to the Internet Movie Database, the 2006 film is about “a shadowy freedom fighter known only as “V” uses terrorist tactics to fight against his totalitarian society. Upon rescuing a girl from the secret police, he also finds his best chance at having an ally.”

CNN could not verify if the Facebook page belonged to the gunman, but it does list Duke, 56, as living in Panama City, Florida.

A biography on Duke’s Facebook page reads: “My Testament: Some people (the government sponsored media) will say I was evil, a monster (V)… no… I was just born poor in a country where the Wealthy manipulate, use, abuse, and economically enslave 95% of the population. Rich Republicans, Rich Democrats… same-same… rich… they take turns fleecing us… our few dollars… pyramiding the wealth for themselves. The 95%… the us, in US of A, are the neo slaves of the Global South. Our Masters, the Wealthy, do, as they like to us…”

Under “political views,” Duke labels himself a “Freedom Fighter.” Under religious views, he wrote, “Humanism.”

Duke, who lived in Lynn Haven, a suburb of Panama City, has a previous record, Becker told CNN.

According to the website of the Florida Department of Corrections, Duke was sentenced in 2000 for aggravated stalking, obstructing justice and throwing or shooting into a vehicle.

According to the Panama City News Herald, after six months of stalking a former girlfriend, Duke confronted the woman outside her home on Oct. 20, 1999. He was wearing the mask and vest and holding two .22-caliber guns. He threatened to kill her, then kill several others and then himself, the newspaper said. When the woman tried to drive away, Duke shot out a rear tire.

The photo of Duke on the corrections page matches the Facebook page.

The News Herald reported that the gunman was taken out of the building on a stretcher. According to Panama City Police Chief John Van Etten, no one other than the suspect was injured, affiliate WJHG said.

School board spokeswoman Karen Tucker said the man “was a large guy” she had seen sitting in the back of the boardroom earlier, according to the News Herald.

Superintendent Husfelt will hold a press conference at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the administration building in Panama City, police said.

CNN affiliate WMBB reported children and parents were at the meeting to be recognized for achievements, but were gone before the incident began.

“We are absolutely in state of shock,” said Stafford. “I was in the third floor and we were watching the live feed, and first we thought it was a drill. But the more that you watched it, we realized this was an actual incident and emergency situation.”

Duke’s Facebook page listed him as a 1972 graduate of King High School in Tampa.

His favorite quotation: “You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth,” from the movie “A Few Good Men.”

A controversial animal-rights group preparing to embark on its annual harassment campaign against Japanese whalers has stepped up its effort this season by enlisting the aid of … Godzilla.

The swift and ominous-looking interceptor vessel has the moniker Gojira, named after the ferocious monster in the legendary Japanese film, which in English means Godzilla.

The 115-foot boat was launched by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society on Monday in Fremantle, Australia, and has joined the larger vessels, Steve Irwin and Bob Barker, in Hobart. At midweek all three will begin their journey to Antarctic waters, where their crews will await the arrival of the Japanese whaling fleet.

Japan also means business. The whaling ships will carry armed members of the Japan Coast Guard to help prevent sabotage by the activists, according to the Japan Times.

These seasonal confrontations in the remote Southern Ocean have become increasingly tense, with occasional collisions underscoring the danger and controversial nature of some methods employed by Sea Shepherd, which has been criticized for risking human lives in its effort to save minke whales, which are not an endangered species.

Last season Sea Shepherd scuttled its interceptor vessel, the Ady Gil, after claiming it had been rammed and irreparably damaged by a whaling vessel. New Zealand investigators found both crews to have been at fault.

Japan annually targets about 900 whales — mostly minkes but also a handful of endangered fin whales — during a three-month season that generally begins in early December.

Japan gets around a longstanding International Whaling Commission ban against commercial whaling by using a “research” loophole and designating the hunts — which are considered an important part of Japanese culture and tradition — scientific missions.

However, pressure to persuade the country to curtail whaling is mounting. The IWC last spring submitted a proposal calling for Japan to reduce its quota to about 200 over a 10-year period. Australia has used an international court to try to halt whaling in the Antarctic, where killing occurs within a designated whale sanctuary.

Last season the Japanese fleet killed 506 minke whales and one fin whale. Officials with Japan’s Fisheries Agency and the Institute of Cetacean Research regard Sea Shepherd as an eco-terrorist organization that has successfully obstructed hunting. Though the whaling effort is termed scientific, whale meat is sold commercially throughout Japan.

Gojira, which can easily out-run the larger Japanese vessels, will be used to help locate the factory ship, which processes whales killed by crews aboard harpoon boats; to try to thwart harpooning, and to prevent delivery of harpooned whales to the factory ship.

“The factory ship is the one we’re after and if we can find it, we can shut down whaling,” Sea Shepherd spokesman Jeff Hansen told reporters in Australia. “We can save 10 to 12 whales a day by blocking the slipway on the factory ship, so really this vessel is going to play a huge part in shutting down the Japanese whaling fleet for the entire summer.”

This will be Sea Shepherd’s seventh campaign against Japanese whaling in the Antarctic during the Southern Hemisphere summer, and the fourth season with an Animal Planet crew aboard, filming for its popular “Whale Wars” series.

The mayor of Fremantle, Western Australia, officially christened Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s newly acquired, fast interceptor vessel Gojira, during a ceremony in Fremantle’s fishing boat harbor earlier this week. Mayor Brad Pettitt presented Fremantle’s flag and an engraved plaque with the city’s coat of arms to Captain Locky MacLean for Gojira’s maiden voyage to defend the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.Gojira Captain Locky MacLean expressed, “Fremantle has once again proven to be one of the strongest support bases for Sea Shepherd. From the onshore volunteers, to the local businesses and people of Fremantle, we would not have been able to be leave on time without their support.”

Perhaps the real ceremony highlight was the unveiling of Gojira’s registration with the homeport of Fremantle. The significance here is for the first time in Sea Shepherd’s 33 years of operation, they will have an Australian-registered vessel, with Australian crewmembers, defending Australia’s territory, and upholding the Australian Federal Court ruling.

“Having Fremantle as a homeport for Gojira, and flying the Australian flag, optimizes Australia as the most passionate defender of whales in the world,” said Sea Shepherd’s Australian Director Jeff Hansen.

Gojira

Gojira is currently en route to Hobart, Tasmania to join the rest of Sea Shepherd’s fleet with a mission to defend the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. On December 2, Captain Paul Watson and his international crew will embark upon their annual journey aboard three ships Steve Irwin, Bob Barker, and Gojira, on a mission to enforce international conservation law and prevent the illegal slaughter of endangered whales.

Sea Shepherd sends a special mention of great appreciation for onshore support to the following individuals and businesses:  Hayley Radford, Olly Klokhag Rowlett, Liza and Mike Dicks, Brendon Clark and all the team from Clark Australia Group, Macca and all the team at BME Engineering, John and the team from Nail Ale Brewery, Peter Wales and all the team from Kailis Marine, all the team from Eye In The Sky Magazine, and the Perth Chapter of Sea Shepherd – thank you!

Sea Shepherd would also like to extend a big thank you to Fremantle’s mayor Brad Pettitt who showed his support in representing Australia’s wishes in having the compassion and conviction to stand up to the illegal whalers.

In 2007, Paul Watson persuaded the Discovery Channel to make a reality show documentary about the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s campaign against Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary off the coast of Antarctica. The Japanese claim that their whaling is legally accepted research, which Sea Shepherd and others contend is a cover for banned commercial whaling. Sea Shepherd has been both criticized and praised for tactics of direct action sabotage which include throwing stink bombs of butyric acid as well as ramming, boarding, and otherwise attempting to disable the Japanese vessels.

The program premiered on November 7, 2008, on the Animal Planet cable channel and follows events on the vessel Steve Irwin as the group attempts to deter the hunting of Minke and Fin whales in the Southern Ocean. The show came at a time when Animal Planet was being rebranded to attract broader audiences and compete with non-animal-centric programming.

Synopsis

Season one

MY Steve Irwin arriving in Melbourne, 2008.

The 2007-08 Antarctic campaign was named Operation Migaloo, after the only known albino humpback in the world. This campaign was the focus of the first season of Whale Wars, which premiered on November 7, 2008.

On January 15, 2008, after attempting to entangle the whaling vessel’s propeller and throwing containers of butyric acid onto the decks, two Sea Shepherd members, Benjamin Potts and Giles Lane, from the Sea Shepherd vessel MV Steve Irwin boarded the Japanese whaling vessel Yushin Maru No. 2 from a rigid-hulled inflatable boat. The pair were delivering a letter advising the Japanese that they were “whaling illegally” with the hope of creating an international incident. The Japanese responded by saying that the men would be held until Sea Shepherd stopped what they called “dangerous and illegal activities.”

The crew of the Yushin Maru No. 2 detained the men for two days, before turning them over to the Australian customs vessel MV Oceanic Viking on the orders of Japanese authorities; subsequently, the Steve Irwin rendezvoused with the Oceanic Viking and the two crewmembers were returned to Sea Shepherd. On April 9, first mate Peter Brown was described in a newspaper article as saying that the incident only became a hostage situation because the Sea Shepherd vessel left the scene, so the Japanese would be forced to hold the two crewmen longer. He was quoted as saying, “It’s all giant street theater.”

On March 3, Sea Shepherd members threw bottles of butyric acid and packages of slippery methyl cellulose powder onto the Japanese vessel Nisshin Maru. Australian foreign minister Stephen Smith condemned Sea Shepherd’s actions for potentially causing injury The Japanese Government called in the Australian and Dutch ambassadors to protest the actions and urge those countries to prevent any violence. Watson said: “They are so full of crap. We filmed and photographed the entire thing. Not a single thing landed anywhere near their crew … It is their way of trying to get sympathy.”

The International Whaling Commission issued a statement on March 8, 2008 that “called upon the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to refrain from dangerous actions that jeopardise safety at sea, and on vessels and crews concerned to exercise restraint.” The statement also reiterated earlier IWC resolutions from May and July 2007 that read in part, “The commission and its contracting governments do not condone and in fact condemn any actions that are a risk to human life and property in relation to the activities of vessels at sea.” The Australian Government also called for all parties to “excercise restraint” and “responsible behaviour” in the Southern Ocean.

On March 17, 2008 Paul Watson claimed that he was shot by the Japanese crew or coast guard personnel during the campaign. The incident is heavily documented during the show in the final episode, and the first six episodes are covered as a buildup to what is portrayed as the major incident during the campaign. The footage in Whale Wars shows Watson standing on the deck of the Steve Irwin while Sea Shepherd crew throws glass bottles filled with butyric acid at the Nisshin Maru whaling vessel. The Japanese respond by throwing flashbang devices. Watson is then shown reaching inside his jacket and bullet-proof vest and remarking “I’ve been hit.” Back inside the bridge of the Steve Irwin, a metal fragment is found inside the vest. The Institute of Cetacean Research has dismissed Sea Shepherd’s statements as lies. The Institute and Coast Guard said that they used seven flashbang devices designed to flash and make noise in the air without causing harm. Neither of the two conflicting accounts have been independently verified. The Australian Foreign Affairs Department had condemned “actions by crew members of any vessel that cause injury”. Two media releases were made on the same day from the office. One said that the Australian Embassy in Tokyo had been informed by the Japanese that the whalers had “fired warning shots” while the updated version used the phrase “‘warning balls’ – also known as ‘flashbangs’ – had been fired”, and that no gunshots had occurred.

Season two

The 2008-2009 Antarctic campaign was named Operation Musashi after the 17th-century Japanese strategist Miyamoto Musashi. On December 4, 2008, actress Daryl Hannah joined Sea Shepherd’s crew aboard the Steve Irwin to take part in this season’s operation.

On February 6, 2009, Watson reported that the Steve Irwin had collided with the Yushin Maru 2 as the Steve Irwin tried to block its attempt to prevent the transfer of a dead whale up the slipway of the factory ship Nisshin Maru. As Watson explained the incident, “We were in the process of blocking the transfer from the Yushin Maru 2 when the Yushin Maru 1 moved directly in front of the bow to block us. I could not turn to starboard without hitting the Yushin Maru 1. I tried to back down but the movement of the Yushin Maru 2 made the collision unavoidable.” The Japanese whalers blamed Sea Shepherd for the crash, characterizing the incident as a “deliberate ramming.” The collision was filmed by cameramen for the Whale Wars reality series, and formed part of a multi-day conflict during which Sea Shepherd attempted to prevent the Japanese fleet from harpooning whales, respectively tried to block whales from being transferred to the factory ship for processing by blockading the Japanese’ vessel’s slipway. The Japanese made extensive use of LRADs to deter Sea Shepherd. They were also accused of aiming the device at the Steve Irwin’s helicopter while in flight, something the group especially condemned, seeing that the helicopter was only engaged in filming, and could have crashed if the pilot had lost control.

Season three

The Bob Barker docked in Hobart, Tasmania.

At the start of the campaign, Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet, said in a news release: “The issues surrounding whaling in the southern ocean are important and complex. The majesty of these beautiful creatures and the lengths to which the Sea Shepherds will go in order to prevent whaling has made Whale Wars intense and vital television.” She also said that Japan had denied requests to film on their vessels.

In June 2009, Sea Shepherd announced its 2009-10 Antarctic campaign, called Operation Waltzing Matilda. The campaign would include the record-breaking Earthrace vessel, now renamed Ady Gil in honor of the benefactor who helped acquire the vessel for Sea Shepherd. The Ady Gil was a futuristic styled ship that held the world record for circumnavigation of the globe by a motorized vessel. The eco-friendly vessel usually ran on a low emission fuel “derived mainly from animal fat, soybeans or other forms of bio-diesel” but was forced by operational reasons to switch to a more polluting petroleum diesel. Pete Bethune, the operator, said that an agreement was reached with Sea Shepherd for the boat to adopt a support role.

The Ady Gil docked in Hobart, Tasmania.

Captain Paul Watson and his crew of 40 left with the Steve Irwin and Ady Gil from Fremantle, Australia, and from Hobart, Tasmania, respectively, last December. It was well publicized that the Sea Shepherds had added more vessel firepower to keep up with the larger, faster and more numerous whaling vessels. What they kept secret, however, was that Bob Barker, famous for “The Price Is Right” and one of the best-known personalities in the world of animal activism, donated funds to purchase a third vessel to add to the Sea Shepherd’s fleet. Ironically, the ship is a former Norwegian whaling vessel but has since been renamed and refitted. With a crew of 26 and led by Captain Chuck Swift and first officer and Whale Wars veteran Peter Hammarstedt, the Bob Barker was docked off the coast of Africa on the island nation of the Republic of Mauritius, until it was ready to join its Sea Shepherd colleagues and engage in a surprise “engagement” to stop whaling.

Bob Barker is a strong advocate for animal rights; in particular, he’s an animal-rights activist, which means he has puts his name on the line and his money where his mouth is.

For years he ended ‘The Price Is Right’ by urging people to get their pets neutered; in 1987 he stepped down as host of the Miss USA/Universe Pageants because that organization wouldn’t eliminate fur prizes. In January of this year, he donated $5 million to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to purchase a ship to thwart illegal Japanese whaling operations.

On Wednesday’s ‘The Huckabee Show’ (weekdays, syndicated), Barker appeared with Chuck Swift, captain of the MV Bob Barker, the anti-whaling ship named after the game-show host, and the pair discussed the international whaling treaties broken by the Japanese, Barker’s donation to the Sea Shepherd society, and the successes they have made in saving whales from destruction.

Paul Franklin Watson (born December 2, 1950) is a controversial and outspoken Canadian animal rights and environmental activist, who founded and is president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, a direct action group devoted to marine conservation.

The Toronto native joined a Sierra Club protest against nuclear testing in 1969. He was an early and influential member of Greenpeace, crewed and skippered for it, and later was a board member. Watson argued for a strategy of direct action that conflicted with the Greenpeace interpretation of nonviolence, was ousted from the board in 1977, and subsequently left the organization. That same year, he formed Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The group is the subject of a reality show, Whale Wars.

He also promotes veganism, voluntary human population control, and a biocentric, rather than anthropocentric, worldview.

Paul Watson was born in Toronto to Anthony Joseph Watson and Annamarie Larsen, and grew up in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. After working as a tour guide at Expo 67, the World’s Fair that took place in Montreal in 1967, Watson “rode the rails” in boxcars west to Vancouver.

In 1968 and the early 1970s, he joined the Canadian Coast Guard, where he served aboard weatherships, search and rescue hovercraft, and buoy tenders. He signed up as a merchant seaman in 1969 with the Norwegian Consulate in Vancouver and shipped out on the 35,000 ton bulk carrier Bris as a deck hand. The Bris was registered in Oslo, Norway and manifested for the Indian Ocean and Pacific trade.

Watson has one child (born 1980) with his first wife, Starlet Lum, a founding director of Greenpeace Quebec, Earthforce!, Project Wolf, and Sea Shepherd. His second wife, Lisa DiStefano, a former Playboy model, was Sea Shepherd’s Director of Operations during the Makah anti-whaling campaigns in Friday Harbor.  His third wife, Allison Lance, is an animal rights activist and a volunteer crew member of Sea Shepherd.

In October 1969, Watson joined a Sierra Club protest against nuclear testing at Amchitka Island. The group which formed as a result of that protest was the Don’t Make a Wave Committee, which evolved into the group known today as Greenpeace.  Watson sailed as a crewmember aboard the Greenpeace Too! ship in 1971 and skippered the Greenpeace boat Astral in 1972.  Paul Watson continued as a crew member, skipper, and officer aboard several Greenpeace voyages throughout the mid-1970s. According to Watson, in June 1975 during a Greenpeace campaign to confront Soviet whaling, an incident occurred which changed his life.

Greenpeace states that Watson “…was an influential early member but not, as he sometimes claims, a founder.”  Paul Watson has characterized the Greenpeace position as “revisionism”.

The first Sea Shepherd vessel, the Sea Shepherd, was purchased in December 1978 with assistance from Fund for Animals.  Sea Shepherd soon established itself as one of the more controversial environmental groups, known for provocative direct action tactics. These tactics have included throwing objects onto the decks of whaling ships, the use of “prop foulers” in an attempt to sabotage the ships, boarding whaling vessels, and the scuttling of two ships in an Icelandic harbor.  Watson remains the leader of Sea Shepherd today and uses the title “Captain” in reference to his role in the organization, although he has never been licensed as a ship’s captain.  The organization and its activities to halt whaling are the focus of a reality TV series, Whale Wars, airing on Animal Planet.

Watson was a field correspondent for Defenders of Wildlife from 1976 to 1980 and a field representative for the Fund for Animals from 1978 to 1981.  Watson also was a co-founder of Friends of the Wolf and Earthforce Environmental Society.

During the 1980s, Watson declared his support for Earth First! and cultivated friendships with David Foreman and Edward Abbey. He proclaimed Sea Shepherd to be the “navy” of Earth First! Watson has claimed to have invented the tactic of tree spiking.

Although currently unaffiliated with it, Watson did work with the Green Party of British Columbia in Vancouver in the 1980s and 90s.  He ran for mayor in 1996, placing fourth.

In April 2003, Watson was elected to the board of directors of the Sierra Club for a three-year term.  In 2006, he did not seek re-election. He resigned from the board a month before his term ended, in protest against the organization’s sponsorship of a “Why I Hunt” essay contest.

Watson feels that “no human community should be larger than 20,000 people,” human populations need to be reduced radically to “fewer than one billion,” and only those who are “completely dedicated to the responsibility” of caring for the biosphere should have children, which is a “very small percentage of humans.” He likens humankind to a virus, the biosphere needs to get cured from with a “radical and invasive approach,” as from cancer.  In January 2008 Paul Watson was named by The Guardian as one of its “50 people who could save the planet” for the work of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

Watson published Earthforce!, a guide to strategy for environmental activists in 1993.  In it, he specifically endorsed the tactics of “monkeywrenching” previously described by Dave Foreman and Edward Abbey.  According to Foreman in Eco-Defense—The Field Guide to Monkey-Wrenching, these are tactics of sabotage, covert activity, and direct action.  Watson says he incorporated his own personal experience in writing the book.

In Earthforce! An Earth Warrior’s Guide to Strategy, Watson also expresses disdain for truthfulness in the pursuit of environmental protection goals:

The nature of the mass media today is such that the truth is irrelevant. What is true and what is right to the general public is what is defined as true and right by the mass media. Ronald Reagan understood that the facts are not relevant. The media reported what he said as fact. Follow-up investigation was “old news.” A headline comment on Monday’s newspaper far outweighs the revelation of inaccuracy revealed in a small box inside the paper on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Watson was explicit on this score: “If you do not know an answer, a fact, or a statistic, then simply follow the example of an American President and do as Ronald Reagan did—make it up on the spot and deliver the information confidently and without hesitation.”  In a subsequent book, Ocean Warrior, Watson reiterated this view, saying: “Survival in a media culture meant developing the skills to understand and manipulate media to achieve strategic objectives.”

Paul Watson continued as a crewmember, officer, and skipper (in 1972) aboard several Greenpeace voyages throughout the mid-1970s. He considers himself a founding member of Greenpeace and Greenpeace International, a claim Greenpeace disputes. Friends noted that his personality, his liking to “push himself front and centre”, was to blame in addition to his espousing direct actions that Greenpeace considered too controversial.

In 1977, Watson was expelled from the Greenpeace’s board of directors by a vote of 11 to 1 (Watson himself cast the single vote against it). The group felt his strong, “front and center” personality and frequently voiced opposition to Greenpeace’s interpretation of “nonviolence” were too divisive.  Watson subsequently left the group. The group has since labeled his actions at the time as those of a “mutineer” within their ranks.  That same year, he founded his own group, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

During an interview in 1978 with CBC Radio, Watson spoke out against Greenpeace (as well as other organizations) and their role and motives for the anti-sealing campaigns.  Watson accused these organizations of campaigning against the Canadian seal hunt because it is an easy way to raise money and it is a profit maker for the organizations.

Greenpeace has called Watson a violent extremist and will no longer comment on his activities.

Watson was arrested in 1993 in Canada on charges stemming from actions against Cuban and Spanish fishing boats off the coast of Newfoundland.  In 1997, Watson and his then fiancée Lisa Distefano were convicted in absentia by a court in Lofoten, Norway on charges of attempting to sink the small scale Norwegian fishing and whaling vessel Nybrænna on 26 December 1992, and sentenced to serve 120 days in jail but Dutch authorities refused to hand him over to Norwegian authorities although he did spend 80 days in detention in the Netherlands before being released.

There have not been any successful attempts at prosecuting Watson for his activities with Sea Shepherd since the trial in Newfoundland. Watson himself defends his actions as falling within international law, in particular Sea Shepherd’s right to enforce maritime regulations against illegal whalers and sealers.[43] Watson caught a Costa Rican fishing boat poaching in Guatemalan waters while he was on a journey to Costa Rica, having been invited by its president to help in the fight against shark poaching there. The authorities in Costa Rica later filed seven charges of attempted murder against Watson and a colleague, Rob Stewart, in what Watson and Stewart have described as an effort to cover up mafia-funded illegal shark finning operations.  They eventually fled to international waters to escape arrest by Costa Rican coast guards after they had filmed what they attest was mafia-funded shark-finning in private docks. These events are featured in Sharkwater, a documentary about sharks and activism.

Paul Watson leads protest against Makah whaling, Port Angeles, Washington, 1998.

Watson was also told to leave Iceland after having turned himself in to the Icelandic police after disabling two ships in harbor. Kristjan Loftsson of Iceland’s largest whaling company told The New Yorker that Watson is persona non grata in that country.

In April 2010, the Japanese Coast Guard obtained an arrest warrant for Watson “…on suspicion of ordering sabotage activities against Japan’s whaling fleet.”

After his election to the national Sierra Club Board of Directors in 2003, Watson supported an unsuccessful slate of candidates supporting strict immigration controls as an element of a population stabilization policy. This effort was denounced by another candidate in the election, Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, as a “hostile takeover” attempt by “radical anti-immigrant activists.”  Watson responded by saying that the only change he was seeking in the organization’s immigration stance was to restore the position it had held before its 1996 “neutrality policy.”  Watson left the Sierra Club board in 2006.

In April 2008, Watson stated that, while the deaths of three Canadian seal hunters (a fourth one is still missing) in a marine accident involving a Canadian Coast Guard vessel and a fishing boat during the 2008 Canadian Commercial Seal Hunt were a tragedy, he felt that the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of seals is an even greater tragedy. Canadian Federal Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn accused Watson of trivializing the memory of the lost sealers.  Watson replied that Mr. Hearn was trying to distract attention from his government’s incompetence as the boat the men were on capsized while under tow by a Canadian Coast Guard vessel, while his political ambitions continued to support and subsidize an industry that had no place in the 21st Century.  Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams was quoted as saying, “I think what a lot of people don’t realize is that this man is a terrorist.”  In response, Watson said that calling him a ‘terrorist’ might be cute, but it had no foundation in reality, as he had never injured anyone, or been convicted of a crime.  Due to the operations against Canadian seal hunters, Danny Williams called Watson a terrorist and said that the Sea Shepherds were not welcome in the province.

In October 2009 Watson, who carries a US passport, complained to media outlets about having his request for an Australian visa denied. He states that the Australian government was attempting to sabotage the upcoming 2010 Sea Shepherd campaign by denying him entry into the country. Watson and several other shipmates were also unable to join the MV Steve Irwin on its promotional tour of Australia until they were able to provide documentation from the governments of the United States, Canada and Norway, exonerating them from previously claimed acts of violence, specifically claims by Sea Shepherd of intentionally sinking a ship in Norway.

On March 17, 2008 Paul Watson said that he was shot by the Japanese crew or coast guard personnel during the Operation Migaloo anti-whaling campaign in the Southern Ocean. The incident is documented during the season finale of season 1 of the Whale Wars TV reality show, and the first six episodes are covered as a buildup to what is portrayed as the major incident during the campaign. The footage in Whale Wars shows Watson standing on the deck of the Steve Irwin while Sea Shepherd crew throws glass bottles filled with butyric acid at the Nisshin Maru whaling vessel. Butyric acid was used for its foul odor and sticky properties.  The Japanese respond by throwing flashbang devices. Watson is then shown reaching inside his jacket and body armour and remarking “I’ve been hit.” Back inside the bridge of the Steve Irwin, a metal fragment is found inside the vest.

The Japanese Institute of Cetacean Research has dismissed Sea Shepherd’s statements as lies. The Institute and Coast Guard said that they used seven flashbang devices designed to flash and make noise in the air without causing harm.  Neither of the two conflicting accounts have been independently verified. The Australian Foreign Affairs Department had condemned “actions by crew members of any vessel that cause injury”. Two media releases were made on the same day from the office. One said that the Australian Embassy in Tokyo had been informed by the Japanese that the whalers had “fired warning shots” while the updated version used the phrase “‘warning balls’ – also known as ‘flashbangs’ – had been fired”.

Watson has been called an eco terrorist by the Japanese government for his direct action tactics against whalers, and have repeated their position after conflicts during the 2009-10 whaling season.

His leadership style has variously been called arrogant, as well as pushing himself too much “front and center”,” which was cited as being one of the reasons he and Greenpeace parted ways.  The atmosphere aboard his vessels has been compared to an “anarchy run by God”.

At an animal rights convention in 2002, Paul Watson was also quoted as saying, “There’s nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write the history.”  Recently, Fox News commentator Glenn Beck also discussed the comment, criticizing Watson’s views.  Watson responded to Beck’s comments on the official Sea Shepherd website by stating that he had said that but that it was taken out of context, quoting Gerald Seymour‘s “One man’s terrorist is another’s freedom fighter.”

Watson has stated that he does not consider himself a ‘protester‘, but an ‘interventionist‘, as he considers protesting as too submissive.  He often takes the attitude that he represents (or stands in for) law enforcement which is either unwilling or unable to enforce existing laws.

Bob Barker Captain, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born and raised in Southern California, Chuck Swift, 44, has a history of involvement in conservation and animal welfare issues spanning the last 20 years.

Swift began volunteering for Sea Shepherd in 1990 and remained involved for nearly a decade. His campaign roster includes the 1994 Whales Forever campaign in which Sea Shepherd was violently attacked by the Norwegian Coast Guard, multiple seal campaigns including the explosive 1996 confrontation in the Magdalene Islands, and a variety of other campaigns before and after.

During his absence from Sea Shepherd, he worked in various professions, earned a degree in Business Administration, a professional certificate in Change Leadership from Cornell University, and as time permits, he continues his studies toward a Masters in Communication and Leadership. Since his return to Sea Shepherd in early 2009, he has functioned as Sea Shepherd’s Deputy CEO, positively influencing both the administrative and ship operations sides of organization – most notably helping to secretly acquire, refit and then ultimately captain Sea Shepherd’s newest ship the Bob Barker during Operation Waltzing Matilda.

Swift believes that the time for talking is over, and prefers a direct action approach on behalf of Sea Shepherd’s customers (“the salty ones”) currently threatened by societal greed and exploitation. While serious about his dedication to the protection of marine and other ecosystems, Swift maintains that a good sense of humor and positive attitude are critical to the success of any movement. He has been heard to say, “We should take our mission seriously, but never ourselves.”

Peter James “Pete” Bethune (born April 4, 1965) is a New Zealand promoter of bio-fuels and conservationist. He is the holder of the world record for the fastest trip around the world in a powerboat and is involved with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. He was captain of the Ady Gil (previously the Earthrace) until it sank following a collision with a Japanese whaling vessel. He was convicted in Japan for a direct action that involved boarding a whaling vessel and received a suspended sentence. 

Personal life and early career

Bethune grew up in Hamilton East, New Zealand as one of five children. He studied science at the University of Waikato and engineering at the University of Auckland. He has two daughters with his wife, Sharyn, from whom he is separated.

He began his career as an oil exploration engineer and worked in the North Sea and Libya. In 1997, he co-founded CamSensor Technologies. The company manufactured automated camera systems for controlling robots used in complex tasks such as cutting up and grading meat carcasses. He later moved to Sydney to establish the business there.

He is adamant about the potential for alternative fuels. In 2003, Bethune wrote a 20,000-word paper while pursuing his Master of Business Administration degree from Macquarie University about the use of renewable energy for road transport. In regards to him enjoying fishing and hunting along with his previous occupations, Bethune told a reporter for The New Zealand Herald: “I’ve come from a very unusual background to be a conservationist.”

Captain of Earthrace

Earthrace, Malmo, Sweden, August 20, 2007.

Based on his research at Macquarie, Bethune set out to prove that hydrocarbon fuels could be replaced by sustainable bio-fuels. He had Earthrace designed and built in order to break the world record for a circumnavigation by a powerboat in hopes that it would call attention to the viability of bio-diesel as an alternative fuel. He mortgaged his New Zealand home and financed the building in the hopes of recouping the expenses from sponsorships. He declined a $4 million sponsorship from a company that would have required them to use regular diesel.

His first attempt began in Barbados on March 10, 2007. He encountered significant delays due to issues with the propellers and other mechanical problems. On the night of March 19, while around 22 kilometres (14 mi) offshore from Guatemala, Earthrace collided with a local fishing boat. No Earthrace crew were hurt, but one of the three crew members from the fishing boat was killed. The crew was absolved of any responsibility after a 10-day investigation during which they were held in custody. The delays prevented them from completing the circumnavigation in record time, but because Earthrace took an official start time when leaving San Diego, the team decided to “restart” with this new start/finish line. They departed San Diego on April 7, 2007 and needed to return by June 21 to break the record. The attempt was abandoned on May 31 after a crack was discovered in the hull shortly after leaving Malaga, Spain.

He departed from Valencia, Spain, in another attempt on March 1, 2008. As a publicity stunt, Bethune and two others had undergone liposuction in order to convert a small amount of their own body fat into fuel. The idea arose from a previous plan to tour New Zealand in a car with an attached mobile bio-diesel plant. He finished at the Spanish port of Sagunto on June 27. The journey was completed in 60 days, 23 hours and 49 minutes, beating the former record by over two weeks. Bethune then embarked on a world tour with the vessel to promote awareness of alternative fuels.

Captain of Ady Gil

Ady Gil, Hobart, Australia, December 16, 2009.

After touring ports around the globe, the Earthrace was put on sale for $2.6 million and Bethune considered using it to interfere with Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean if a buyer could not be found. Hollywood production-house owner Ady Gil purchased the boat and Earthrace was renamed after him on October 17, 2009. Gil left the ship to Bethune and a crew of five who refitted for Antarctic waters to participate in anti-whaling activities as part of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Bethune said before the operation: “I’m a conservationist. One of the things I’ve learned on Earthrace is stand up for stuff you believe in. Year after year the Japanese go down there and nothing seems to change… If they want to go amping things up a bit, then bring it on.” His wife later told the press that he first became alarmed by the state of the oceans when skippering the vessel during the record attempts.

On January 6, 2010 the Ady Gil was involved in a collision with the Japanese whaling vessel MV Shōnan Maru 2 in the Southern Ocean, and the Ady Gil subsequently sank. An investigation into the collision by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) was inconclusive and unable to assign blame for the collision. AMSA was unable to verify claims made by Sea Shepherd, while the Japanese government declined to participate with the investigation saying any information it had might be needed for an inquiry by its own authorities.

Arrest, trial, and conviction

On February 15, 2010, Bethune boarded the Shōnan Maru 2 claiming to be conducting a citizen’s arrest on her captain, Hiroyuki Komiya, alleging attempted murder and to present a claim for $3 million for the loss of his vessel. Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research issued a statement calling it a publicity stunt. He used a jet ski to approach the ship then climbed onto its deck after cutting through an anti-boarding net that was draped around the hull. He was detained by the ship’s crew and taken to Tokyo, where he was arrested by the Japanese Coast Guard on March 12 on charges of trespassing.

On April 2, 2010, Bethune was indicted in Japan on five charges: trespassing, assault, illegal possession of a knife, destruction of property and obstruction of business. The assault charge is based on the allegation that he threw a bottle of butyric acid onto the Shōnan Maru 2 days before the boarding, causing chemical burns to a whaler’s face. The Sea Shepherd group claims the burns were self-inflicted when the crewman was shooting pepper spray at the protesters. Bethune could have faced up to 15 years in prison if found guilty of injury, or up to three years if found guilty of trespass. Bethune’s lawyer claims the charges are unfounded and states that his client will strongly deny them. He was held without bond in the maximum security Tokyo Detention Centre while he stood trial.

Bethune’s trial began on May 27. Bethune was charged with intruding on the ship, forcibly obstructing business, violating the Firearms and Swords Control Law and damaging property.

Several major newsmedia reported that Bethune pleaded guilty to four charges while others reported that he admitted four charges or that he conceded four of the charges but has contested an assault charge. Newsreview.com claims that Bethune did not “plead” guilty as there is no such thing as a plea in Japanese criminal proceedings and he and his Japanese lawyers claim that Sea Shepherd’s actions are protected by the United Nations World Charter for Nature, which allows private organizations to interfere in government-like ways in the interest of the environment. Though he admitted to launching a projectile of butyric acid, he contested the assault charge against him on the grounds that he lacked intent to injure the ship’s crew. In his tearful final statement delivered on June 10, Bethune said: “I did not have the intention of hurting crew members. I took action because I wanted to stop Japan’s illegal whaling.” Prosecutors demanded a sentence of two years in prison.

The Labour Party’s Chris Carter accused the New Zealand Government of “washing their hands of the fate” of Bethune. Bethune has received visitations from consular staff. Prime Minister John Key said “…it’s worth noting that I can’t get involved in a prosecution in another country any more than I can get involved in a prosecution in New Zealand. What I can do is make sure the person is being treated fairly.”

On June 4, in what was later said by Paul Watson to be a legal strategy on the part of Sea Shepherd, Sea Shepherd announced that it was no longer going to be formally associated with Bethune since a set of bow and arrows was on the Ady Gil during the anti-whaling operation. The group stressed that the weapon was not intended to be used against any person, and Bethune previously had stated to Animal Planet cameras during Whale Wars filming that he intended to use the bow and arrows to spoil whale meat for commercial use. Sea Shepherd said it would continue to support Bethune during the trial in Japan. On July 7, Pete Bethune was given a two-year suspended sentence. In addition, he was banned from Japan for five years. Bethune was deported to New Zealand on July 9.

Bethune held a press conference upon returning to New Zealand. He told reporters: “My trial in Japan represents a miscarriage in justice. Not because I stood before that court, but because the captain of the Shōnan Maru 2 did not.” He also called the New Zealand Government a “lap dog” for its lack of support.

A anti-whaling activist from New Zealand who was handed a suspended sentence for obstructing the annual Japanese whale hunt has vowed to continue his crusade.

Peter Bethune was deported from Japan after receiving a suspended two-year sentence for obstructing Japanese whaling in the Antarctic Ocean.

Speaking on his return home, Bethune said he would never give up his fight.

But the 45-year-old said he was unsure if he would return to Antarctic waters.

Bethune was detained aboard a Japanese whaler in the middle of the Antarctic Ocean in February after clambering aboard. He was arrested when the vessel returned to Japan.

The former member of the conservation group Sea Shepherd was escorted by immigration officers onto an Air New Zealand flight bound for Auckland on Friday.

Throwing stink bombs

Speaking in the city on Saturday, Bethune said that he was ready for a coffee.

“I want to go to a coffee shop,” he told the NZ Herald newspaper.

“In prison, there’s nothing to do. You are stuck in a cell 23-and-a-half hours a day and I have been looking forward to going to a coffee shop and having a coffee and a muffin.”

AFP news agency reported that Bethune said he would never give up his fight to stop Japanese whaling.

The activist, who spent four months in a Tokyo jail, had pleaded guilty to four out of five charges but had denied assault.

He had admitted charges of trespassing, vandalism, possession of a knife and obstructing business.

Bethune was also found guilty of assault, by throwing stink bombs made of butyric acid – rancid butter – at whalers.

He was part of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling group, which tries each year to block Japan’s annual hunt.

He was the captain of the Ady Gil, a speed boat split in two during a clash with the whalers on 6 January.

Earlier, he had told his trial that he had wanted to confront the Japanese ship’s captain and hand him a $3 million bill for the destruction of the vessel.

Large numbers of police officers were on duty outside the court in Tokyo where the verdict was delivered on Wednesday.

Japan abandoned commercial whaling in 1986 after agreeing to a global moratorium.

But it says that whaling is part of its culture and catches hundreds of whales each year as part of what it calls a scientific research programme.

Whale Warrior Captain Pete Bethune Free to Return Home

On January 6, 2010, Captain Hiroyuki Komura of the illegal Japanese whaling vessel the Shonan Maru #2 deliberately rammed and destroyed Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s vessel, the Ady Gil. Captain Komura almost killed six Sea Shepherd volunteer crewmembers and did not respond to the Ady Gil’s mayday distress signal. Japanese authorities refused to cooperate in investigations and declined requests by Australian and New Zealand maritime authorities to question Captain Komura.

Instead, Captain Peter Bethune, the man who Captain Komura almost killed and whose ship was destroyed, was taken back to Japan literally as a prisoner of war abducted from the waters of the Australian Antarctic Territory. Captain Bethune was incarcerated for boarding the ship that had rammed and destroyed his ship, when he had every right to board that vessel to confront Captain Komura face-to-face for his crimes.   

Captain Komura should have been the man on trial. He was not, because in the waters of the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, might—rather than the law—makes right, and Captain Bethune was taken back to Japan to be made an example of and persecuted for defending the whales.

The verdict of the Japanese court was always to be “guilty.” Sea Shepherd was never under any illusion that Captain Bethune would be given a fair trial. In court, there was no discussion of the reason why Captain Bethune boarded the Shonan Maru #2, and Captain Komura was not called as a witness; in short, the court never allowed any evidence of the Ady Gil’s destruction to be heard.

Sea Shepherd spent in excess of half a million U.S. dollars on Captain Bethune’s defense, not because we believed he would be acquitted, but in an attempt to mitigate his sentence.

Captain Bethune was facing up to fifteen years in prison. He was sentenced to two years and he will be deported back to New Zealand on July 9th with his sentence suspended.

Captain Bethune’s mission was successful. His efforts helped save the lives of 528 whales. He was able to take one of the harpoon vessels off the hunt when it was forced to return him to Japan. Most importantly, he exposed the brutality and illegality of the Japanese whaling fleet to the world. When you’re willing to risk your life to save the whales, five months as a Japanese prisoner is a good trade-off for the lives saved.

Captain Bethune is a hero to the Save the Whales movement and he will be welcomed home to New Zealand as a national hero for having the courage to do what his government was fearful of doing—defending whales from the Japanese poachers in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.    

Global support for Captain Bethune and negative publicity about Japan’s whaling program has led to this success. With Captain Bethune, the Japanese government was well aware that each day it held him would be a day that would generate protest against its abominable whale slaughter. This fact, coupled with protests over the showing of the Academy Award winning film “The Cove,” has helped to make the whale and dolphin slaughter the most embarrassing foreign affairs issue currently scandalizing the Japanese government.

The Japanese court acknowledged that Captain Bethune never intended to hurt anyone and was operating under his conviction to save whales from illegal whaling.  The truth is that Japan wants Captain Bethune out of Japan and with the sentence suspended they can quickly send him home.

Sea Shepherd is proud of Captain Bethune’s achievements and satisfied with the results of this ridiculous trial that saw a man incarcerated for saving the lives of whales, yet ignored the crimes of a Japanese poacher who sank a ship and almost killed six conservationists.

Captain Bethune is free, and that is what matters. Sea Shepherd is free to return to the Southern Ocean again to defend the whales, and we intend to be even more effective next season than during our last highly effective season.

Captain Bethune is an inspiration in courage and dedication, and his efforts, his sacrifice, and his resolve will not be forgotten.

Animal Planet announced it has given the green light for a new “Whale Wars” one-hour special series episode featuring Captain Pete Bethune of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.  

During the two-hour season finale, viewers’ last glimpse of eco-pirate and anti-whaling activist Bethune will be when he is taken into custody by Japanese authorities and brought to Tokyo, where he had been held on charges of trespassing, obstructing the passage of a vessel, carrying a knife and damaging property.

According to Animal Planet, Bethune, whose story arc has captivated audiences this season as his beloved vessel the Ady Gil collided with the Shonan Maru 2 and sank into the bottom of the Southern Ocean, spent months in custody but was released on July 9, 2010 and returned home to New Zealand. 

The special is slated to air following the season finale of BLOOD DOLPHINS on Friday, September 17 at 10 PM (ET/PT).

The exclusive one-hour special episode features Bethune recalls his ordeal on board the ship that held him for nearly a month and subsequently the three months he was detained in Japan. 

How was he treated during his detention? What went through his mind during that harrowing time? The outspoken whale warrior will share revelations, opinions and thoughts on the experience after spending four months contemplating his decisions and fate until finally being released. In addition to Bethune’s interview, the special will reveal his background, showcase the most exciting highlights from the season featuring Bethune, Captain Paul Watson and other members of Sea Shepherd, and delve into what’s next for this environmental cowboy.

“Whale Wars viewers really have connected with Pete’s passion this season,” says Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. “His actions in this campaign put him at the center of some very dramatic action.  We’re fortunate that he’s agreed to open up about his extraordinary experiences at sea and on land to save whales.”

First Mate, Bob Barker, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in Sweden and raised in the United States, Peter, 25, joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as soon as he was old enough to submit an application.

A fervent advocate for the rights of animals, Peter believes that in their capacity to suffer, animals are our equals. From the foreboding Labrador Coast to the treacherous Antarctic continent, Peter has sailed the seven seas trying to put those words into action. He has saved as many lives as he can from illegal whaling, sealing and destructive fishing practices.

In his numerous years with Sea Shepherd, Peter has been held hostage by Ecuadorian fisherman, physically attacked by sealers, assaulted and arrested by the Canadian Coast Guard (twice), involved in a confrontation which included the side-swiping of an illegal whaling ship, been rammed by another and pulled up countless miles of fishing longline. In the war to defend life in the oceans, this Swede is far from neutral.

Between campaigns, Peter is finishing a degree in Media and Communications at Stockholm University and is actively campaigning with the Swedish Animal Rights Alliance.

Helicopter Pilot and Aviation Director, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

American Chris Aultman, 40, of Long Beach, California, is a dedicated environmental conservationist and commercial helicopter pilot living in the United States. Prior to joining the Sea Shepherd team, Aultman served for six years in the United States Marine Corps as a helicopter avionics technician. During this period Chris spent 13 months at sea and became a veteran of the Gulf War.

Aultman’s first experience with the destruction of the world’s oceans was seeing the disastrous effects of the millions of barrels of oil dumped into the Persian Gulf during that war. This and many other experiences caused Chris to start to see the world for what it really was, and nothing was ever the same again.

Many years later, Chris met the founder of Ocean Defenders Alliance, who was tabling for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society at a local scuba show. Already a commercial helicopter pilot and flight instructor, Chris asked if Sea Shepherd ever needed helicopter pilots. This proved to be a very ironic question since it was his involvement with Ocean Defenders Alliance that brought him to meet Captain Paul Watson and become the helicopter pilot for Sea Shepherd.

Chris has flown during the last four Antarctic Whale Defense campaigns and is ready to return to the world’s oceans for the defense and conservation and marine wildlife.

We recently reported that Michelle Rodriguez will be joining Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd on their next voyage to the Antarctic. Now Rodriguez has revealed that she will follow a vegan diet while on the ship.

Rodriguez explained, “I’m not (a vegetarian) but I will have to be because on the ship, it’s a vegan ship – you can’t be a hypocrite; you can’t be sitting there trying to save animals and then killing them. That’s just weird.”

The Avatar actress admits that she is inspired by Captain Watson and acknowledges the dangers involved.

“I have a tendency not to think before I do things, which you know what, it really adds a little spice to life – because if you thought too much about things before you do them, you’d never do them,” explained Rodriguez.

Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the 4th, 5th, and 6th letters of the name.

Shannon Mann

Quartermaster, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Shannon was born in the prairies of Canada, spending summers exploring the northern forests and lakes of the Canadian flatlands. Early in her life she developed an affinity for animal life and their interaction with the environment. Shannon has always had a compassionate eye to the earth and the creatures that inhabit it. Scholastic by nature, she studied drosophila flies during university life and later developed high-tech software for cell phone companies. However, her passion for the beleaguered earth and its creatures was never far from her heart. 

In 2005, Shannon heard Paul Watson speak at the Annual Animal Rights Conference in Los Angeles. She understood immediately that his was a cause worth being involved in. She returned from the summer conference, contacted the Sea Shepherd, and was accepted as a volunteer for the Antarctic campaign of 2006-2007. 

Shannon’s tenacious personality and rock-solid belief system have perpetuated her understanding of boundaries, limits and the power of the human spirit. She credits Watson with helping her to understand the power of dedication and fight. During her journey with the Sea Shepherd, she’s developed confidence in her ability to navigate the sea and whip up delicious vegan fare, all while fighting for the animals who are helpless to defend themselves. 

While Shannon battles on the rocky seas, she relies on the kindred spirit of her sister to care for her best buddy Jack, her beloved rescue dog back home. Shannon’s non-profit organization FLEA (Friends of Life, Environment, and Animals) was granted charitable status in Canada in 2008, fueling her passion for the environment and shaping a plan for her future endeavors. Her most passionate goal is to put an end to whaling in the Antarctic Sanctuary once and for all.

Deckhand, Cook and Rescue Swimmer, Bob Barker

Fiona is living her ultimate dream by being able to work full time representing animals and their rights around the world. This year she was a crew member onboard the Bob Barker as part of the Sea Shepherd’s Operation Waltzing Matilda Whale Defense Campaign 2009-2010 in Antarctica.

A Sydney, Australia, girl, Fiona, 32, grew up by the sea and the bush with a natural love of everything wild.

Founder of Excellence in World Zoos, she was able to combine her love of animals with her two degrees of Economics and Property. Her organization instigates redevelopment of poor enclosures in developing countries. Her first project was the Australian Zone of the Beijing Zoo in time for the Olympics.

Fiona has worked as a property consultant for eight years, but always weaved in volunteering with animals throughout this time. She spent six months volunteering in Africa and America in wildlife rehabilitation, volunteered in three zoos and is now head of the youth committee for the Foundation for the National Parks and Wildlife in New South Wales.

With a human population predicted to double to 12 billion, Fiona believes there is a huge amount of work to be done in her life to prevent the extinction of many species of wildlife.

Chief Cook, Bob Barker 

Growing up in South Africa, Amber Paarman noticed injustice at an early age and saw striking parallels between the exploitation of human beings and animals. Raised as a vegetarian, she also recognized that change only comes about by taking action. Rather than turning her back on the abandoned and abused animals in South Africa, Amber opened up her home to many dogs, cats, horses and birds. But it took Sea Shepherd arriving in Cape Town after the 2005 Antarctic Whale Defense Campaign for Amber to take her passion for animals to a global level.

Since then, she has pulled up long lines in the Galapagos, opposed sealing in Canada, and tackled whalers in the Antarctic. Amber can be found in the galley combining her love for animals with her love of food. With health, nutrition, and cruelty-free as her main ingredients, Amber keeps the Bob Barker crew well-fed and ready for action.

Between Sea Shepherd campaigns, Amber actively campaigns against vivisection, fur farming, and fox hunting around the world, and finds the time to expose animal abuse wherever she goes. For Amber, being an animal rights activist is a full-time job. Not to lose sight of what she is fighting for, Amber also always finds time to help animals directly by volunteering at animal shelters and by teaching people about the environmental impacts of a meat-based diet.

Amber hopes that by fighting for whales and cooking vegan food, she is able to motivate people to reassess the way that other animals are seen as food as well.

Bosun’s Mate, Bob Barker

Growing up in Atlanta, Andrea’s passion for protecting animals first began on land. Working with Sea Shepherd in 2005 to save baby harp seals, she developed a profound desire to protect marine life.

This past year, while on sabbatical from her job as a public defender in Brooklyn, she has been volunteering with Sea Shepherd. She spent the summer investigating environmental crimes in the Galapagos Islands and then joined the Bob Barker on its maiden voyage in Africa.

Driven by a desire to save lives – whether whales, seals or humans – Andrea is devoted to protecting all of Earth’s inhabitants. Besides working with Sea Shepherd, she saved lives in a different capacity – in the courtroom. Providing help to those who could not afford a lawyer, she spent four years as a public defender for the Legal Aid Society of New York City. She is currently co-founding the Galapagos’s first animal hospital, Darwin Animal Doctors.

Andrea hopes to inspire other people to cherish and protect all life, whether in their own town or in the most remote regions of the planet.

How did your training in the Navy prepare you for your position with Sea Shepherd?
I spent my six and a half years in the Navy as a surface warfare officer, where I was assigned to a marine transport ship in San Diego, California, and a frigate out of Seattle, Washington. On both of those vessels, I was required to be a small-boat officer, which made me very familiar with Sea Shepherd’s Delta and Gemini launching, recovery, and general small-boat operations. I’ve spent countless hours in a Navy small boat. I was also required to qualify as an officer of the watch, so I had experience with ship maneuvering (but not through ice!), navigation, rules of the road, helicopter operations, radars, radio communication, and everything else that comes along with being on the bridge of a 300- to 500-foot ship. As a bonus, I was also a helicopter control officer on the frigate, ensuring the safety of a helicopter when launching and recovering.
The difference: Sea Shepherd plays music on the bridge, we get to ride the bow in major storms, our ship’s log has drawings and colorful stamps (after three mistakes in the Navy, you have to rewrite the log) … and the Steve Irwin is vegan!

What was the most rewarding part of your post with Sea Shepherd?

I would say being able to utilize my skills in an appropriate arena—the ocean—and feeling useful. The ultimate for an animal activist is to go on campaign and be in the action and feel the wind and sea spray and life as opposed to being in an office, which, of course, is important as well.
It was wonderful. The day we found the fleet, a minke whale crossed in between us and the factory ship, Nisshin Maru, and we knew we were his or her protector. The whale could safely carry on and live another peaceful day, and to do that for at least one whale was a mission accomplished. But we knew we couldn’t stop there … whaling needs to end.

What was one of the most difficult things about fighting against whalers?

When we were out in the Southern Ocean, it was four against one. The harpoon ships are so fast and maneuverable (they could do a 180 in their own wake!) and easily did circles around us. It made it difficult to ever feel as though we had the upper hand, and we often felt a bit like a tin can. It would be amazing if we were no longer outnumbered.
What animal rights issues are you most passionate about?
It was very difficult to decide where to focus my efforts, but I thought Sea Shepherd was the perfect place since I have skills for ship-handling, guts for action, and a heart for humanity.
Immediately, I would like to work on getting Sea Shepherd another ship to use down in Antarctica. But in addition to focusing on marine life, I will also be concentrating my efforts on ending vivisection—another arena of extreme cruelty to animals.

Whale Wars
can be a pretty intense show. Have you ever had a moment where you thought you couldn’t keep going? What made you persevere?

There was never a moment when I thought I couldn’t keep going. All the action was extremely intense with lots of adrenaline going through everyone’s blood. The action became very addicting, and when we had to leave the whaling fleet, it was very, very disappointing. I was not ready to leave. We definitely need more ships out there.

Now for the question on everyone’s mind: How has being named PETA’s Sexiest Naval Woman positively affected your life?

It’s a very fun title to have, and who wouldn’t be honored to have the title of PETA’s Sexiest Naval Woman? I thought there might only be two vegetarians out there to compete with, but what a wonderful surprise to hear that there were so many! I’m looking forward to wearing my winning T-shirt and sparking some interesting conversations with animal lovers, as well as educating those who want to debate the issues.

Can we look forward to a third season of the show?

Oh, yes. There is a third season. Sea Shepherd has just merged with Earthrace, a round-the-world, record-breaking trimaran, so I suspect that the tactics next year are going to be completely different. Anything could happen when you bring a boat that looks like a spaceship down to the Southern Ocean!

Will you be on deck again?

Oh, I got so addicted to Sea Shepherd’s campaigns that I want to go on all of them! Before the merge, I met Earthrace in New Zealand and loved the boat, so I will be trying out to crew on it. With Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s new popularity, there are so many new, interesting, skilled, and keen volunteers, so I’m not sure if I will be selected, but my fingers are crossed!

Locky MacLean from “Whale Wars,” whose full name is Lockhart MacLean, is the First Officer on the Steve Irwin vessel in the Animal Planet reality docu-drama.

Round-the-world sailor and environmentalist, Locky (“Whale Wars”) was born in France, grew up on the west coast of Canada and went to the University of California at Santa Barbara. Locky MacLean has lived on a solar-and-wind-powered sailboat for the last 10 years, sailing to over 25 countries on four continents, crossing the world’s oceans. These voyages have led Locky (“Whale Wars”) to coral islands in the Pacific, which are threatened by climate change; forests in New Guinea and Indonesia being cleared for palm oil; and the war-torn coasts of Sri Lanka, Yemen and Sudan.

Originally involved with Sea Shepherd 10 years ago on board the Ocean Warrior during the SOS Sea Turtle Campaign and Long-lining Campaign in the Caribbean, Central America and Galapagos, Locky MacLean has worked for Greenpeace Asia-Pacific and Greenpeace International on board the ships Rainbow Warrior II and Esperanza in Europe, Australia and Asia. However, Locky (“Whale Wars”) has returned to “the hardest working and most effective NGO” in the world (Sea Shepherd), and is most happy being back and part of a cause he believes in.

Locky MacLean is passionate about conserving the world’s biodiversity, and, with his wife Barbara, a journalist and photographer from Brazil, is currently at the helm of the Sea Shepherd vessel Steve Irwin en route to the Mediterranean to protect the endangered bluefin tuna.

Locky (“Whale Wars”) is also working on the “Blue Ship” project, a 30-meter solar- and wind-powered aluminum expedition sailing vessel to identify and set up marine reserves in the world’s last pristine regions.

She also interned with the International Environmental Law Project, with a special focus on CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora); the Center for Environmental Justice, a Sri Lankan NGO based in Colombo; and the National Center for Animal Law. McCoy is a member of MENSA (the “high IQ society”) and founder of the MENSA Animal Law Special Interest Group. She is an official member of the National Disaster Animal Response Team, where she most recently assisted with animal rescue in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. 
 
McCoy is a published law review author, public speaker, and scuba diver with a special fondness for diving with large sharks. She is a certified black belt in American karate, yoga instructor, and mountain paraglider. Her experiences traveling and living overseas (particularly in developing countries) — coupled with a strong desire to put an end to animal cruelty and suffering — led her to choose a vegan lifestyle nearly five years ago. Having previously lived in Japan for two years, she has a fondness for Japanese culture (not including the slaughter of innocent cetaceans) and a special interest in the Japanese public’s general lack of awareness and acceptance of propaganda surrounding the issue of illegal whaling.
McCoy is deeply committed to the defense and conservation of marine animals worldwide and believes firmly in the merits of aggressive, nonviolent direct action as an effective and necessary means to accomplish these goals.

Ady Gil Crewmember, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

After working eight years for the Dutch police force specializing in organized environmental crime, Laurens, 29, realized there was an area of the world where no authority is upholding international conservation laws: our oceans. After little research, Laurens discovered the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as the only organization willing to stand up against the evil powers committing the atrocities that destroy our Blue Planet.

With more then 70 percent of our oxygen coming from the oceans, healthy oceans are vital for life on Earth. Humanity has to do whatever it takes to protect the great waters. For Laurens “doing whatever it takes” meant giving up his job as a crime investigator, selling his belongings and moving to Australia to join the Steve Irwin crew for the 2007/08 campaign: Operation Migaloo. The campaign saved over 500 whales. But unfortunately whaling wasn’t shut down forever.

Laurens returned for the 2008/09 campaign: Operation Musashi as the Japanese whalers returned to Antarctica to slaughter the gentle giants once more, and again in 09/10 for Operation Waltzing Matilda. This time, he was on the Ady Gil crew before it was destroyed, and then the Bob Barker briefly as the Ady Gil crew transferred over before returning to shore. The former crime investigator decided to rejoin the Sea Shepherd crew to help shut down one of the most barbaric crimes against life the world has ever seen: the slaughter of whales in a Whale Sanctuary.

In between campaigns, Laurens works as a freelance writer and sport instructor.

Benjamin Potts

Chief Cook, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
Born and bred in Sydney, Australia, Ben grew up amongst rocky sandstone escarpments, emerald coastal rainforests, diverse eucalypt wood lands and beautiful sandy southern beaches. Surrounded by two large national parks and the myriad of wildlife that skirt white mans’ invasion of the Sydney basin, his home was an ideal place to explore and develop a love of the natural world in his youth. 

Ben’s father worked for the National Parks and Wildlife Service. He used to bring home animals that he had seized from smugglers and trappers. These animals would either be taken to a wildlife refuge for rehabilitation or, if they were local, released back into the bush. These animals gave Ben the opportunity to form friendships and an appreciation of Australia’s unique and amazing wild citizens and he considers these creatures to be part of his extended family. 

After school, Ben spent more time in the bush as an infantry soldier in the Australian Army followed by a number of jobs ranging from outdoor guide to tree planter, traveling throughout eastern Australia from the tropics to the snowy high country. In Tasmania, he witnessed first-hand the destruction of the last remaining stands of Australia’s old growth forests which contain some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. The animals in these forests lose their homes when the forest is cleared for monoculture plantations. Seeing his country and its inhabitants destroyed for a quick buck made him extremely distressed and angry, and he vowed to defend it in the future. 

This decision led him to volunteer with Sea Shepherd to defend the great whales. He had seen documentaries featuring Sea Shepherd, and he wanted to be involved in an organization which is on the front-line of defending threatened species and attempting to halt man’s wholesale destruction of the natural world. He is extremely proud and felt privileged to have been a crew member in the lead up to and during the 2008 campaign which was a pivotal experience in his life and gave him the confidence and drive to fight for life on this planet. 

Ben plans to further his education in the environment by studying conservation biology and ecology as well as continuing to be involved with Sea Shepherd and local direct action environment group, Still Wild Still Threatened.

LAURA DAKIN

Chief Cook

Laura was born on November 16, 1983, in the small fishing village of Dorset in Weymouth, England. Growing up traveling among England, Bermuda, India and Australia, she developed a huge love of the oceans, the forests, and life on Earth. She spent much of her childhood caring for injured and abused animals and developed a deep concern for the welfare of all wildlife.

Angered, frustrated and determined to make a difference in the world, Laura set out to learn how she could be most effective, and in January 2005, she turned that anger into action by becoming a Sea Shepherd crew member.

While living in Bermuda and working for the fashion industry (of all things!), she spotted the Farley Mowat (one of Sea Shepherd’s ships), where it was preparing to sail for Canada to defend the baby harp seals. After a short tour on board, the deeply moved aspiring activist could not resist and asked the Captain when the ship was leaving. “Tomorrow morning,” he replied. She raced home, packed a bag, and called her boss to beg for four weeks of holiday leave. That was four years ago, and she has never looked back! Her passion, determination, and resolve to end the slaughter of innocent marine life grow every day.

In her four and a half years as a Sea Shepherd crew member, she has experienced collisions with illegal whaling vessels, pulled in miles of longline, and has had the pleasure of freeing sharks, turtles, and manta rays from the grasp of the longline’s deadly hooks. She has been physically attacked by poachers and has been arrested on the ice floes protecting baby harp seals, but her commitment is long from over. Laura will not stop until the war for the Earth is won.

LUKE VAN HORN

Communications Officer, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in the United States, Luke was raised on a small dairy farm in southern Michigan. He attributes his strong work ethic and self-reliance to growing up in this environment.

Luke went on to explore the western United States, spending several years in the Rocky Mountains and most recently on the West Coast. It was during this time that he developed a deep appreciation for the natural world and realized the importance to protect it.

In recent years, Luke has become increasingly concerned that our impact on the environment is reaching a tipping point. He felt the best way to make a personal impact was to join Sea Shepherd in the southern ocean defending a mammal both cherished and decimated by humans.

When he’s not on campaign, Luke works as a software engineer. In his free time, he enjoys trail running, sailing and hiking. He currently lives in Washington state.

Luke Van Horn,who’s new to “Whale Wars” this season, spoke with the Mole about life aboard the “Steve Irwin.” Here’s more from our conversation:

What’s a typical day like aboard this ship?
A typical day depends on what is going on. Sometimes I would be woken up twice during the night to handle situations. But a normal morning, I’m up, go the bridge and make sure our email is working properly. Paul (Watson, founder of Sea Shepherd) is up, but he seems to always be up, he just goes and goes and goes! I had to make sure all the systems were working. If I had side projects going,I had to do some triage.
 
Is there any one task that’s absolutely key?
Yes, the most important thing is getting the ice charts that show where the ice floes are. That’s crucial for us. It can change so quickly too. So interpreting that data and trying to plan ahead for what the currents are doing, that takes a lot of time.
 
Did you ever have any down time at all, whether a day or a few hours?
Those times were few and far between. We were able to relax a little for New Year’s and Christmas. We took the time for ourselves, just to hang out. One of the downsides of this campaign is that you’re with this crew of amazing individuals and you wish you had more time to spend just being with them, getting to know them better. 
 
How was the food on board? In season one, we saw how busy the cooks were feeding everyone these healthy vegan meals.
The galley staff is amazing, one of the hardest working groups on the ship. Cooking for more than 40 people is pretty amazing, and it’s physically demanding to do it on a ship. 
 
Did you lose weight on the voyage? 
I lost 15 pounds, but I didn’t get seasick. Most people (on a ship) have a real loss of both energy and a desire to eat. And you had to be careful that you didn’t overeat so there was always enough to go around.
 
Before being involved in “Whale Wars,” what was your own whale experience, had you seen pods of them in the wild, or at Sea World?
I was pretty limited. Yes, I had seen them at Sea World, and was not a whale expert before the campaign. I fully respect them. Getting to see them up close—to see a pod of Orcas in the wild, and the Minnkes, it is really indescribable, especially down there, surrounded by icebergs and penguins. You never expect to see whales like that.
 
You mentioned how important email is to the crew, it almost makes this journey sound like anybody’s office!
Email is a lifeline and I’m so grateful we have that. It’s a challenge on this ship. It’s an older ship, built in the 70s and the wiring is old. The cool part of it is the range of electronics that we have, but that also makes email a challenge. Being able to be in touch with friends back home, to be in contact, even if we do have to be careful with what we say, is so important. Email is relatively modern but I cannot imagine doing this without it. And for the cost to be down to where it can be used on a campaign like ours…I know everyone is grateful we have it.
 
What can viewers expect to see this season, without giving too much away?
Well, there is no shortage of dynamic events. You’ll see that the rolling seas and weather make it hard to do your job. All those swings and the wind, you’ll see cables can just fly off. And for everyone, there is the tiredness of your body being on overload, trying to do everything. There are a lot of new people on board this time so everyone is adjusting..
 
What made you want to participate in Sea Shepherd’s mission, had you been involved in animal activism before?
Other than volunteering at a local animal shelter, no. But seeing the industrial slaughtering and packaging of whales, the factory aspect of it—it’s disturbing, and I’m planning to go back for another campaign.

Ship engineer Larry Routledge stands in the cabin as he prepares the new Earthrace stealth high-tech anti-whaling powerboat brought by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for its imminent deployment for Perth and then the Southern Ocean, on November 5, 2009 in Auckland, New Zealand. The 24-metre trimaran has paint which deflects radar waves, so can approach Japanese whaling vessels almost unseen. It will join the Society’s ship Steve Irwin on a three-month voyage protesting against the Japanese whaling program, leaving Perth on December 7.

Merryn is a doctor with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

She works in community paediatrics, is a DEA member from Victoria and is a doctor on the Steve Irwin in Antarctica hassling Japanese whalers. Here is her first blog. I suspect that many DEA members are envious. You can donate by going to  www.seashepherd.org -Editor.

Hello all!
 
We made our way down to Antarctica on the Steve Irwin over the last two weeks, after a farewell party in Perth that included Bindi Irwin singing a song about friendship with whales. I had to push my fashionable cynicism aside – it was lovely and afterwards she and her brother did a great job of being normal kids, quietly trailing close behind their Mum.

Alarming evidence of climate change when we saw an iceberg at 47 degrees south… usually they don’t appear til the fifties at least.

We’ve been tailed since we left Australian waters by a Japanese harpoon “spy” vessel keeping track of our movements. There have been with a few spectacular run-ins on the high seas and then in the ice. A couple of days ago, as we neared the continent we were slowed in an ice field. Their ship, the Shonan Maru 2, made multiple runs at the side of our vessel, all the while announcing “I am turning. Keep clear”. It was pretty outrageous. As was their aiming an acoustic weapon at our helicopter pilot when he flew over them! Weapons are illegal in Antarctic waters and interfering with a pilot is prohibited under international aviation treaties to which Japan and Australia are signatories. As we know: not necessarily a dererrent to the whaling fleet.

We sought assistance from the French Antarctic base at Durmont D’Urville and spent a couple of days in their waters. Our first officer helicoptered over to the base for a meeting. The French were supportive, providing an official letter offering their support for our mission and that we could take shelter from the whaling vessel with their ice breaker “La Astrolabe”. (And I believe from photographic evidence they may have given our helicopter pilot and first officer some great cheese though they haven’t told us vegan crew!).

For the last two days we’ve been anchored in Commonwealth Bay, for tactical reasons (can’t discuss!)- which has given us a chance to drill up and do some amazing once in a lifetime activist-tourism.

After the “penguin swim” – jumping off the side of the ship into the freezing antarctic waters, no wet suit (people were very amused when I took the defibrillator out on deck in case of long QT syndrome) – we went in our delta boat onto the Antarctic continent, to visit the Australian Antarctic explorer Mawson’s hut.

It was absolutely magical. The weather was perfect: a couple of degrees above zero, perfectly lit, no wind. Every vista of a penguins, ice, ocean, icebergs, grey granite rocks, penguins and seals under a bright but moody sky looked like a professional photograph; I’m sure a set designer couldn’t create a more remarkable place! (No offence meant to any scenic painters in my audience ;)

There are literally thousands of Adelie penguins here and they are just gorgeous. They swim and dive around the boat, doing mega-quick jumps above the water surface like dolphins. And cause great hilarity when they hop vertically out of the water and land upright on the ice (or once, in our small boat!).

There was small colony of huge Waddel seals was lying around on the ice, turning lazily to size us up before settling back to sleep like cats. Neither seals or penguins were particularly bothered by our presence – in fact groups of the Adelies would run up to stare at us, or follow us around curiously. One of our crew, Michael, a professional nature photographer (his amazing frog pictures can be found at www.itsawildlife.com) was in heaven.

We walked up to the penguin rookery overlooking spectacular ice cliffs with a view of Commonwealth Bay, then took tours of Mawson’s hut with the conservators and enjoyed the hospitality of the 10 base members. Doctor:patient ratios were pretty favorable: they have two doctors on their expedition team – one is also a qualified engineer (!), the other the expedition leader, and they compare constructing their bases to orthopaedic surgery.

Personally I was really excited to see one of the world’s longest-situated tidal sensors pulled out of the water by the guys from the base with some of our divers. The data it contains is important for measuring sea level rise caused by global warming. Matt style, I now have a climate change holiday snap to add to my climate change talk!

Soon we’ll be in the thick of the campaign again. I’ll be thinking of you all over the next few weeks and would love to hear news from home – especially some post-Copenhagen updates (though I’m afraid they might be depressing), and especially if the Liberal party is tearing themselves apart. Looking forward to sharing some stories and photos when I arrive home!

Love, best wishes, merry Christmas!!

SIMON AVERY

Bosun’s Mate and Boat Driver, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in Britain and resident of the United States, Simon, 44, joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as a deckhand aboard their flagship, The Steve Irwinin 2008. During the Operation Musashi Antarctic Campaign, one of Simon’s principal roles was small boats driver in operations against the Japanese whaling fleet.

Simon’s boat-driving skills were honed over the previous decade while serving as a land steward on some of the wildest and most spectacular islands off the coast of Britain. A conservation biologist with more than 13 years experience of protecting threatened marine wildlife, Simon feels that his instinctive passion for wildlife conservation naturally led him to volunteer for an organization that is at the vanguard of the struggle to end the savage pillaging of the world’s oceans by the combined forces of greed and ignorance.

When not volunteering with Sea Shepherd, Simon works as a biologist, working to protect seabirds and other wildlife for a range of organizations, both in Britain and the United States.

ARNE FEUERHAHN

Deckhand, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Arne grew up in northern Germany and has always had a close connection to the sea – both as a small boy exploring the shores of the North Sea and later as a diver down in the deep.

Before his time as volunteer crewmember with Sea Shepherd, Arne was an unemployed vegan, a so-called “dumpster diver” in the backyards of Berlin. At some point, he decided to change his life and try to give those who cannot defend themselves a voice. So, with a little motivation, he sent in a crew application and eight months later found himself chasing the Japanese whaling fleet in the defense of the whales with Sea Shepherd for Operation Musashi.

Arne will start his nautical studies this summer to gain more knowledge about ships and seafaring. In a few years, he hopes to set up a new organization of his own, which will work hand-in-hand with Sea Shepherd and other conservation groups to protect life in our oceans.

Chadwick Halstead

Deckhand, Steve Irwin

Chad Halstead, 25, was born and raised in Philadelphia. Chad is a long-time animal rights activist, ethical vegan and adventure seeker, who believes that only our actions of today will make the difference in our world tomorrow. As a crewmember on the deck department and driver of the Delta (small boat), he had joined Sea Shepherd to do his part in resistance against the common destruction of this world’s lands and oceans. With an interest in Arctic travel and life at sea, he was more than comfortable spending months in the Southern Ocean defending whales.

When not on the ship, Chad is surfing, painting, enjoying life with friends and looking forward to the upcoming campaigns with hopes to influence changes not only in the oceans, but the way people consume and dispose of their resources on land as well. He believes that oceans, rivers, lakes, marshlands, beaches and forests are all interconnected, and unless people find ways to reduce their impact on the environment, everything will soon fail. Chad encourages everyone to be a part of the solution and not the problem.

Deckhand, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Molly is an anthropologist who completed her honor’s thesis on environmentally sustainable communities in Australia. Frustrated with the inaction of academia, she left her hometown to pursue her own three-year study of eco-communities. She filmed as she went in the hopes of creating a documentary that would encourage and give direction to fellow eco-panicked city dwellers.

Molly first heard of Sea Shepherd when she was locked onto a log loader in an anti-old growth logging action alongside a Sea Shepherd deckhand. During the 36 hours they were locked together, he explained that a Sea Shepherd campaign was 95% grunt work and 5% glory; when you find the fleet and it starts running, whaling ends, and it makes everything worthwhile. Molly saw a tangible way to create positive change, and she was sold.

Ending whaling is important to Molly as she sees it as a stepping stone in the greater environmental struggle. Living oceans are often overlooked in the environmental movement, but they are vital. Oceans absorb 80% of the world’s carbon and contain the majority of its species. To want to protect something, your heart must go out to it, so for Molly, the fight to save the oceans starts with the whales. They are a symbol of the living ocean, which is dying in our time. Molly believes if we can’t save the whales then we can’t save the oceans, and if we can’t save the oceans then we can’t save ourselves.

“I think we are at that point in human history where we are required to quit our day jobs. Many people serve the environment part time whilst at the same time working to save money for their future, but without the environment and planet to live on, there is no future. I wish everyone would just stop right now and volunteer his/her life to saving the environment: Find an organization you like, and if you can’t find one, form your own organization. The best part is there is nothing to lose because money won’t be the currency of the future; adaptability, life experience and practical skills will be wealth. The feeling of fighting for the Earth is fantastic. It is what living really feels like. I wish every single person could experience that feeling,” says Molly.

Between bouts of grassroots activism, Molly enjoys making ethnographic documentaries and working as a circus trainer in Hobart, Tasmania. In her spare time she loves snowboarding, roller derby, live music, the cinema as well as doing laps at the pool, exploring the library, trading vintage bargains, searching for the best coffee in town, traveling, and being married to the most gorgeous man in the world (Andrew Perry).

Photography has given Chantal Henderson a wild life on the high seas.

8th June 2008

The baby sea lion is stuck in a moment he can’t get out of.

As he stares into the eyes of a nine-metre orca on the remote shores of an Argentinian beach, he has no idea what is about to happen.

He is only four weeks old, and yet to develop the skills that alert him to this kind of danger.

A moment later, the little one is gone – lost in the jaws of the huge mammal, known as Mel.

And a few metres away, Chantal Henderson is perched quietly, as she captures the moment on her camera.

The orca she is photographing is one of a group of 22, seven of which have learnt how to intentionally strand themselves on the pebble beaches of Peninsula Valdez to hunt baby sea lions from the shore.

The baby sea lion is just one of many who will become a meal during the orca season from February to April, and the action is played out in much the same way as in a David Attenborough documentary Chantal saw as a child.

“I was quite young when I saw it and I always had it in the back of my mind that I would go there,” she said.

In the last few years, the Cotton Tree local has been to Argentina nine times as part of her work with Punta Norte Orca Research, a non-profit organisation she helped to create in 2004.

One of Chantal’s photos of the ocra in Argentina

She went back there this orca season to continue to document the lives of the animals she has come to know so well.

“It’s pretty amazing. The orcas are quite incredible animals. It’s quite a rush to be within arm’s reach,” she says.

“There’s a male that’s 20 to 25 years old. He should be hunting but he sits back all the time.

“Jazmin’s a really strong female leader. She’s always quite curious about what we’re doing. She lifts her eye up all the time to check us out.”

Chantal says she is able to identify the whales based on their scars, fin shape and social behaviour.

“They tend to group with the same ones all the time,” she says.

“You know when they’re about to hunt because the baby seals will just be playing and quite oblivious to the orca there.

“Then they get their tails thrusting and come in at a hundred miles an hour to the shore. Not many people would like to see it, actually.”

Her return trip to Argentina was the latest in a string of adventures for Chantal, who recently boarded the Sea Shepherd ship named after Steve Irwin.

The Coast-based chiropractor spent December and January chasing Japanese whalers in the Southern Ocean, while working as the designated photographer on the ship.

She was able to keep her friends and family updated regularly via email, as she captured moments that made world headlines, such as when two of the protesters were taken hostage by the Japanese whalers.

Chantal also became a headline herself, after she was flung into the freezing cold Antarctic waters. She was on the smaller Zodiac, which was being lowered into the water from the main ship when the accident happened.

Her boyfriend, David Jennings, was the driver of the Zodiac, but jokingly insists the accident was not his fault.

“It was the guy holding the bower lines,” he adds.

The pair met the day before the ship was due to depart from Melbourne, but both insist that finding love had been the last thing on their minds at the time.

Like Chantal, the American says he has wonderful memories of his time working as a “good pirate” in the Southern Ocean.

“I was looking for another adventure and I really love Antarctica,” he says.

“It’s beautiful – really foreign. It’s almost like you don’t belong there.

“It’s so simple and so harsh… The colours are reduced to just the whites, blues, greys and blacks.”

Chantal is planning an exhibition of her photographs on the Coast in June, to raise money for the Sea Shepherd.

Erwin Vermeulen is Dutch and is working with Sea Shepherd in the engine room as chief engineer since August 2009.

1) Prior to be working on ships of Sea Shepherd , you spent twenty years working on commercial vessels , right? What’s the big difference now of working for an environmental organization ?

Erwin Vermeulen: On commercial ships you feel like a job with all the rules, and I use now all aware of the work I have done all these years in the organization. The big difference here is that everyone works together, everyone is here with a purpose. Everyone comes from a different reality and history, but these people are on board with the same goal. Already in commercial vessels , there are all the work for the career they want to build and is placed first.
In recent months I am not really be “working” , I am here since August 2009. The truth is that I ‘ve been feeling that I have made a difference by being involved with the Sea Shepherd , so do not consider it a job. For me no matter how long I’m on board or how much time I spend at sea, being here makes me happy.

2) And basically what happened to you? After twenty years, suddenly you had a “click” and decided to do something for the planet? After being on board commercial ships and go to work for Sea Shepherd realities are so different …

Erwin Vermeulen : I separated from my girlfriend last year and this time I felt it was the right time for some changes in my work and my life. The work on commercial ships was basically between a port and another Sea Shepherd as well as being a better working environment , we are always in better places and more attractive terms.

3) This was his first Sea Shepherd campaign in Antarctica. How do you feel after this experience?

Erwin Vermeulen : Paul has been interviewed since he started his expeditions in protection to whales in Antarctica and he recently said that ” Waltzing Matilda ” was undoubtedly the most effective of all campaign ever conducted by Sea Shepherd. The permanent organization was to record the time behind the whale , I would say the Nisshin Maru. The time that they lost no whaling was amazing and of course they lost enough money on it this year. Even heard of a Japanese spokesman that they are no longer interested in hunting whales, but keep the members of Sea Shepherd ” occupied. ” What I want to say that the world is upside down!

4) And what is your position on whaling ? You always worried about the possible extinction of species and this awareness has just come in time working with Sea Shepherd?

Erwin Vermeulen: I personally have always been interested in marine animals , even during my previous work on ships and my travels . I always loved looking at the beauty of nature, such as dolphin watching and surfing on the bow of the ship or to see the breath of a whale ” humpback “, it is virtually impossible not to admire and love all these animals when you see them in their habitat.

5 ) What do you miss the ” outside world ” or civilization , since you spend most of the time shipped ?

Erwin Vermeulen : I ‘m already accustomed to life at sea, but the little things that I like to do when I get “land” is smoking a cigarette, a beer and walk more than two hundred feet up and down.

6 ) What do you think could be improved in the Sea Shepherd to make the next campaign even more effective in Antarctica?

Erwin Vermeulen: Every campaign depends on the speed in which we find the whalers , which involves all electronics that can give us that information. I believe there is much that needs to be improvised or improved for the next campaign , but if we could get another ship as Ady Gil, who can go pretty fast, might make a difference to find the whalers and stop them continue with their actions as soon as possible . The Nisshin Maru is a very big ship , when the Steve Irwin and Bob Barker are very small , so I think if we had a ship larger and faster will be a completely different story for the next campaign .

Matt Kimura
Bosun, Bob BarkerMy name is Matt Kimura and I’m honored to serve as bosun on the Bob Barker.As bosun I’m responsible for the deck, small boats, and the 8-person deck crew.I spent 16 years working on ships and tugboats.  I have extensive small boat open ocean experience. 10 years ago, I became a grammar school teacher.When I told my students how the Japanese whaling fleet intends to come down to Antarctica to slaughter 950 whales, they let out this collective gasp.  I didn’t need to explain about treaties, endangered species, research quotas, or sanctuaries.  The children knew in their heart that killing whales was wrong.  It was at that point that this campaign took on a new meaning for me.I promised my students that I would go down to Antarctica with Sea Shepherd and do everything possible to make sure that they and all children grow up in a world where whales are cherished and protected not hunted down and slaughtered.  I intend to keep that promise.Three days ago we engaged the Nisshin Maru.   As we pulled up behind the factory ship, three harpoon ships and the security ship, the Shonan Maru, surrounded us from behind. They then started circling us like a pack of wolves.  They would pass as close as 50 meters alongside then cut dangerously close across our bow.When the Yushin Maru 3 came up within 40 meters that was close enough. TheYushin Maru 3 then veered right into our side.  I yelled for the deck crew to get down as you could hear metal screeching and our ship heeled over.A quick survey of our vessel revealed a one-meter gash just above the waterline.  The Yushin Maru 3 however went dead in the water and has not been seen since.from:  http://www.seashepherd.org/matilda/keeping-a-promise.html————————————————————————————————————-using the number/letter grid:1      2      3       4       5       6      7      8      9

Teen sailor Laura Dekker says she will leave the Netherlands on Wednesday in her quest to become the youngest to circumnavigate the globe alone. But it won’t yet be the first leg of the 14-year-old’s solo voyage.

Laura said on her blog Saturday she will sail with her father to Portugal, and will begin her round-the-world venture from there later. She said she did not know when that would be.

Laura won a prolonged battle last Tuesday when a court released her from the guardianship of Dutch child protection agencies that had blocked her attempts to leave last year when she was still 13. The authorities said being alone and absent from school for so long would be harmful for her education and psychological development.

On her blog, Laura posted a picture of the schoolbooks she is taking, packed snugly in a wooden rack.

She planned to set out at 9 a.m. (0700GMT) in her 38-foot (11.5-meter) yacht Guppy from the southern Dutch harbor of Den Osse with her father Dick Dekker, who has supported Laura’s ambitions to enter the record book as the world’s youngest round-the-world sailor.

The family court in nearby Middelburg ruled that Laura’s preparations appeared adequate and it was up to her parents to decide whether to let her make the attempt. Her mother, Babs Mueller, who is separated from her father, recently withdrew her opposition.

“It’s great that I can now officially say it will happen on Wednesday,” she wrote.

In an earlier blog posting, Laura wrote that she and her father would sail together to Portugal to make final adjustments and safety checks aboard the red twin-masted ketch.

Laura, who was born on a yacht off the coast of New Zealand, has been whittling away at the objections to her unassisted voyage since the authorities stepped in last year. She got a bigger, sturdier sailboat, took courses in first aid and learned to suture her own wounds, and practiced coping with sleep deprivation. She made at least one solo trip across the North Sea to England.

But her plans and legal wrangles have contributed to a global debate over the wisdom of allowing ever-younger sailors to take on the risks of sailing the high seas alone.

Concerns were heightened in June when American teen Abby Sunderland had to be rescued in the Indian Ocean. A wave snapped the mast off her yacht and left her helpless until she was eventually rescued by a French fishing boat more than 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) west of Australia.

Laura is trying to beat the record set last May by Australian Jessica Watson, who was 16 years old when she completed a 210-day voyage on her 34-foot (10-meter) yacht, Ella’s Pink Lady, around the world. Watson says she has just completed a book on her experience.

Watson remained at sea nonstop for her trip around the globe, but Laura plans to stop at several ports along the way where she can meet family and rest.

World’s Youngest Sailor Sets Sail Under the Sea Shepherd Flag

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Founder and President, Captain Paul Watson, along with Laurens de Groot, had a unique conversation around midnight on August 3, 2010 while driving north on Highway 405 from San Clemente to Los Angeles, California. It was early morning in the small Dutch harbor of Den Ostse in the Netherlands when Captain Watson called Laura Dekker—a 14-year-old sailor from the Netherlands—just as she was setting out with her 38-foot sailing yacht Guppy to begin her quest to be the youngest sailor to circumnavigate the globe solo.

Dekker was born on her parent’s sailing yacht off the coast of New Zealand. She has already crossed the North Sea solo at the age of thirteen. Two months ago, Dekker met with Sea Shepherd Netherlands Director Geert Vons and Laurens de Groot in the Sea Shepherd Amsterdam office. She asked if she could fly the Sea Shepherd flag and promote the efforts of Sea Shepherd during her voyage.

Vons, de Groot, and everyone else within Sea Shepherd Netherlands and Sea Shepherd International were immediately enthusiastic.

“I have always said that people should be willing to live their dreams and to be undeterred from pursuing their objectives,” said Captain Watson. “Laura fought the Dutch authorities in court and won. She was not going to let them tell her she could not follow her dreams. Sea Shepherd has always stood for the power of the individual to make a difference, to challenge the odds, and to boldly go where others have feared to venture.”

Dekker will initially sail to Portugal with her father and begin her solo voyage from there. Her first stop will be in the Canary Islands. She is also expected to stop in the Galapagos Islands, where Sea Shepherd Ecuador will organize a warm welcome for her.

Over 100 well-wishers gathered at the dockside of the southern Dutch harbour of Den Osse to wave goodbye to Dekker and her father. It was only last week, that Dekker won a bitter legal fight to overturn a child protection order that had placed her under the guardianship of social workers to stop her setting sail last year when she was thirteen. She has become a Dutch folk hero after rejecting, with parental support, claims by the child protection authorities that the long sea voyage would be too dangerous and damage her “emotional development.”

The teenager has also shrugged off warnings from NATO commanders about piracy off the Horn of Africa and hoisted the black Jolly Roger flag of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as she set sail.

“The oceans are in trouble, and the community that is best suited to defend biodiversity and marine habitats are the surfers, the scuba divers, the swimmers, and the sailors.” said Captain Watson. “I believe Laura will be a future leader in ocean conservation and this voyage will present her with the greatest educational experience possible—an intimate and thorough acquaintance with the sea and all her beauty, mystery, and challenges.”

“Bon voyage and behouden vaart, Laura,” added Captain Watson, “from the crew of all Sea Shepherd ships, as well as our directors, staff, volunteers and members.”

numerology for Steve Irwin and family (comprehensive)

 
Stephen Robert Irwin (22 February 1962 – 4 September 2006), known simply as Steve Irwin and nicknamedThe Crocodile Hunter“, was an Australian television personality, wildlife expert, and conservationist. Irwin achieved worldwide fame from the television series The Crocodile Hunter, an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary series co-hosted with his wife Terri (née Raines). Together, the couple also co-owned and operated Australia Zoo, founded by Irwin’s parents in Beerwah, Queensland
Irwin died on 4 September 2006 after being fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship MY Steve Irwin was named in his honour, christened by his widow, who stated: “If Steve were alive, he’d be aboard with them!” 
Irwin was born on his mother’s birthday to Lyn and Bob Irwin in Essendon, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria. He moved with his parents as a child to Queensland in 1970. Irwin described his father as a wildlife expert interested in herpetology while his mother Lyn was a wildlife rehabilitator. After moving to Queensland, Bob and Lyn Irwin started the small Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park, where Steve grew up around crocodiles and other reptiles
Irwin became involved with the park in a number of ways, including taking part in daily animal feeding, as well as care and maintenance activities. On his sixth birthday he was given a 12-foot (4 m) scrub python. He began handling crocodiles at the age of nine after his father had educated him on reptiles from an early age. Also at age nine he wrestled his first crocodile, again under his father’s supervision. He graduated from Caloundra State High School in 1979. He soon moved to Northern Queensland, where he became a crocodile trapper, removing crocodiles from populated areas where they were considered a danger. He performed the service for free with the quid pro quo that he be allowed to keep them for the park. Irwin followed in his father’s footsteps, becoming a volunteer for the Queensland Government’s East Coast Crocodile Management program. 

Career

Rise to fame

Irwin feeding a crocodile at Australia Zoo
The park was a family run business, until it was turned over to Steve. He took over the running of the park, now called Australia Zoo (renaming it in 1992). Also that year, he appeared in a one-off reptile and wildlife special for television. In 1991, he met Terri Raines at the park, while performing a demonstration. The two married in June 1992, in Terri’s hometown of Eugene, Oregon. The footage, shot by John Stainton, of their crocodile-trapping honeymoon became the first episode of The Crocodile Hunter. The series debuted on Australian TV screens in 1996, and by the following year had made its way onto North American television. The Crocodile Hunter became successful in the United States and also, after repackaging by Partridge Films for ITV, in the UK. In 1998, he continued, working with producer and director Mark Strickson, to present The Ten Deadliest Snakes in the World. By 1999, he had become very popular in the United States, making his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. By this time, the Crocodile Hunter series was broadcast in over 137 countries, reaching 500 million people. His exuberant and enthusiastic presenting style, broad Australian accent, signature khaki shorts, and catchphrase “Crikey!” became known worldwide. Sir David Attenborough praised Irwin for introducing many to the natural world, saying “He taught them how wonderful and exciting it was, he was a born communicator.” 
A 2000 FedEx commercial with Steve Irwin lightheartedly dealt with the possibility of occupational death from snakebite and the fanciful notion that FedEx would have saved him, if only FedEx were used. 
Under Irwin’s leadership, the operations grew to include the zoo, the television series, the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation (renamed Wildlife Warriors), and the International Crocodile Rescue. Improvements to the Australia Zoo include the Animal Planet Crocoseum, the rainforest aviary and Tiger Temple. Irwin mentioned that he was considering opening an Australia Zoo in Las Vegas, Nevada, and possibly at other sites around the world. 

Film

In 2001, Irwin appeared in a cameo role in the Eddie Murphy film Dr. Dolittle 2, in which a crocodile warns Dolittle that he knows Irwin is going to grab him and is prepared to attack when he does, but Dolittle fails to warn Irwin in time. Irwin’s only starring feature film role was in 2002’s The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, which was released to mixed reviews. In the film Irwin (who portrayed himself and performed numerous stunts) mistakes some CIA agents for poachers. He sets out to stop them from capturing a crocodile, which, unknown to him, has actually swallowed a tracking transmitter. The film won the Best Family Feature Film award for a comedy film at the Young Artist Awards. The film was produced on a budget of about $12 million, and has grossed $33 million. To promote the film, Irwin was featured in an animated short produced by Animax Entertainment for Intermix. 
In 2002, the Irwins appeared in the Wiggles video/DVD release Wiggly Safari, which was set in Irwin’s Australia Zoo. It featured Irwin-themed songs written and performed by the Wiggles such as “Crocodile Hunter”, “Australia Zoo”, “Snakes (You can look but you better not touch)” and “We’re The Crocodile Band”. Irwin was featured prominently on the cover and throughout the movie. 
In 2006, Irwin provided his voice for the 2006 animated film Happy Feet, as an elephant seal named Trev. The film was dedicated to Irwin, as he died during post-production. Another, previously incomplete scene, featuring Irwin providing the voice of an Albatross and essentially playing himself, was restored to the DVD release. 

Animal Planet and later projects

Animal Planet ended The Crocodile Hunter with a series finale entitled “Steve’s Last Adventure.” The last Crocodile Hunter documentary spanned three hours with footage of Irwin’s across-the-world adventure in locations including the Himalayas, the Yangtze River, Borneo, and the Kruger National Park. Irwin went on to star in other Animal Planet documentaries, including The Croc Files, The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, and New Breed Vets
As a part of the United States’ “Australia Week” celebrations in January 2006, Irwin appeared at the Pauley Pavilion, UCLA in Los Angeles, California. During an interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Irwin announced that Discovery Kids would be developing a show for his daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin. The show, Jungle Girl, was tipped to be similar to The Wiggles movies, with songs that surround a story. A feature-length episode of Australian kids TV show The Wiggles entitled “Wiggly Safari” appears dedicated to Irwin, and he’s featured in it heavily with his wife and daughter. The show includes the song “Crocodile Hunter, Big Steve Irwin”. 
In 2006, the American network The Travel Channel had begun to show a series of specials starring Irwin and his family as they travelled on cross-country tours. 

Media work

Irwin was also involved in several media campaigns. He enthusiastically joined with the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service to promote Australia’s strict quarantine/customs requirements, with advertisements and posters featuring slogans such as, “Quarantine Matters! Don’t muck with it”. His payments for these advertising campaigns were directed into his wildlife fund. 
In 2004, he was appointed ambassador for The Ghan, the passenger train running from Adelaide to Alice Springs in the central Australian outback, when the line was extended all the way to Darwin on the northern coast that year. For some time he was sponsored by Toyota
He was also a keen promoter for Australian tourism in general and Queensland tourism in particular. In 2002, the Australia Zoo was voted Queensland’s top tourist attraction. His immense popularity in the United States meant he often promoted Australia as a tourist destination there. 

Honours

In 1997 whilst on a fishing trip with his father, Steve discovered a new species of turtle, Steve was given the honour of naming the newly discovered species and named it after his family; Irwin’s Turtle Elseya irwini
In 2001, Irwin was awarded the Centenary Medal for his “service to global conservation and to Australian tourism”. In 2004, he was recognised as Tourism Export of the Year. He was also nominated in 2004 for Australian of the Year, an honour which was won by Australian Cricket Captain Steve Waugh. Shortly before his death, he was to be named an adjunct professor at the University of Queensland‘s School of Integrative Biology. On 14 November 2007 Irwin was awarded the adjunct professorship posthumously by the University of Queensland. In May 2007, the Rwandan Government announced that it would name a baby gorilla after Steve Irwin as a tribute to his work in wildlife conservation. The Crocodile Rehabilitation and Research Centre in Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary was named by the Kerala government after late Steve Irwin. 
In 2009, a genus and a species of Australian air-breathing land snail was named after Steve Irwin, the genus and species Crikey steveirwini Stanisic, 2009, in the land snail family Camaenidae

Environmentalism

Irwin was a passionate conservationist and believed in promoting environmentalism by sharing his excitement about the natural world rather than preaching to people. He was concerned with conservation of endangered animals and land clearing leading to loss of habitat. He considered conservation to be the most important part of his work: “I consider myself a wildlife warrior. My mission is to save the world’s endangered species.” Irwin bought “large tracts of land” in Australia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the United States, which he described as “like national parks” and stressed the importance of people realising that they could each make a difference. 
He had urged people to take part in considerate tourism and not support illegal poaching through the purchase of items such as turtle shells or shark-fin soup. 
He founded the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation, which was later renamed Wildlife Warriors Worldwide, and became an independent charity. He was described after his death by the CEO of RSPCA Queensland as a “modern-day Noah,” and British naturalist David Bellamy lauded his skills as a natural historian and media performer. Irwin and his father discovered a new species of turtle that now bears his name, Elseya irwini — Irwin’s Turtle — a species of turtle found on the coast of Queensland. 
He also helped to found a number of other projects, such as the International Crocodile Rescue, as well as the Lyn Irwin Memorial Fund, in memory of his mother (who was in a fatal car crash in 2000), with proceeds going to the Iron Bark Station Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. 
Irwin, however, was criticised for having an unsophisticated view of conservation in Australia that seemed more linked to tourism than to the problems Australia faces as a continent
In response to questions of Australia’s problems with overgrazing, salinity, and erosion, Irwin responded, “Cows have been on our land for so long that Australia has evolved to handle those big animals.” The Sydney Morning Herald concluded with the opinion that his message was confusing and amounted to “eating roos and crocs is bad for tourism, and therefore more cruel than eating other animals”. 
According to Terri, Sir David Attenborough was an inspiration to Irwin. When presenting a Lifetime Achievement Award to Attenborough after Irwin’s death at the British National Television Awards on 31 October 2006 Terri stated “If there’s one person who directly inspired my husband it’s the person being honoured tonight.” She went on to say “[Steve's] real, true love was conservation – and the influence of tonight’s recipient in preserving the natural world has been immense.” Sir David reciprocated with praising Irwin for introducing many to the natural world, saying “He taught them how wonderful and exciting it was, he was a born communicator.”

Personal life

Family

Terri Raines Irwin, the widow of Steve Irwin 

In 1992, Irwin married Terri Raines from Eugene, Oregon, United States. The pair had met a few months earlier, when Terri had visited the zoo on a holiday; according to both of them, it was love at first sight. Terri said at the time, “I thought there was no one like this anywhere in the world. He sounded like an environmental Tarzan, a larger-than-life superhero guy.” Although he and Terri were happily married, they did not wear wedding rings; in their line of work, wearing jewellery could pose a hazard to them and/or the animals. Together they had two children: a daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin (born 24 July 1998), and a son, Robert Clarence “Bob” (named after Irwin’s father) Irwin (born 1 December 2003). Bindi Sue is jointly named after two of Steve Irwin’s favourite animals: Bindi, a saltwater crocodile, and Sui, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who died in June 2004. 
Irwin was as enthusiastic about his family as he was about his work. He once described his daughter Bindi as “the reason [he] was put on the Earth.” His wife once said, “The only thing that could ever keep him away from the animals he loves are the people he loves even more.” 
Terri Irwin recently reported that Steve had an ongoing premonition that he would die before he reached age 40. She wrote about this in her book Steve and Me about their lives together. 

Controversies

MV Steve Irwin approaching Melbourne in February 2008 

A controversial incident occurred during a public show on 2 January 2004, when Irwin carried his one-month-old son, Bob, in his arm while hand-feeding a chicken carcass to Murray, a 3.8-metre (12 ft 6 in) saltwater crocodile. The infant was close to the crocodile, and comparisons were made in the press to Michael Jackson‘s dangling his son outside a German hotel window. In addition, child welfare groups, animal rights groups, and some of Irwin’s television viewers criticised his actions as irresponsible and tantamount to child abuse. Irwin apologised on the US NBC Today Show. Both he and his wife publicly stated that Irwin was in complete control of the situation, as he had dealt with crocodiles since he was a small child, and based on his lifetime of experience neither he nor his son were in any danger. He also showed footage of the event shot from a different angle, demonstrating that they were much further from the crocodile than they had appeared in the publicised clip. Terri Irwin said their child was in no more danger than one being taught to swim. No charges were filed; according to one journalist, Irwin told officials he would not repeat the action. The incident prompted the Queensland government to change its crocodile-handling laws, banning children and untrained adults from entering crocodile enclosures. 
In June 2004, allegations were made that he disturbed wildlife (namely whales, seals and penguins) while filming a documentary, Ice Breaker, in Antarctica. The matter was subsequently closed without charges being filed. 
After Irwin’s death, the vessel MV Robert Hunter owned by the environmental action group Sea Shepherd was renamed MV Steve Irwin in Steve’s honour. Sea Shepherd is a controversial environmentalist group that conducts direct action operations including the sinking of whaling ships to protect marine species and environments. Shortly before his death, Irwin had been investigating joining their 2007/08 voyage to Antarctica to disrupt Japanese whaling activity. Following his death, as an alternative the renaming of the vessel was suggested by Sea Shepherd and endorsed by his widow Terri. 

Politics

After questions arose about Irwin being paid $175,000 worth of taxpayers’ money to appear in a television advertisement and his possible political ties, Irwin told ABC that he was a conservationist and did not choose sides in politics. 
His comments describing Australian Prime Minister John Howard as the “greatest leader in the world” earned him scorn in the media. 

Search and rescue effort in Mexico

In November 2003, Irwin was filming a documentary on sea lions off the coast of Mexico‘s Baja California Peninsula when he heard via his boat’s radio that two scuba divers were reported missing in the area. Irwin and his entire crew suspended operations to aid in the search. His team’s divers searched with the rescue divers, and Irwin used his vessel to patrol the waters around the island where the incident occurred, as well as using his satellite communications system to call in a rescue plane. On the second day of the search, kayakers found one of the divers, Scott Jones, perched on a narrow rock ledge jutting out from the side of a cliff. Irwin and a crewmember escorted him to Irwin’s boat. Jones did not recognise Steve Irwin. The other lost diver, Katie Vrooman, was found dead by a search plane later the same day not far from Jones’ location. 

Sports fan

Having grown up in Essendon, Irwin was a fan of the Essendon Bombers, an Australian rules football club in the Australian Football League. Irwin took part in an Australian Rules football promotion in Los Angeles as part of “Australia Week” in early 2006. After his death, a picture of Irwin wearing a Bombers Guernsey was shown by ESPN.com in their Bottom 10 ranking of the worst Division I FBS college football teams after Week 1 of the season in tribute to him. 
Like many Australians, he was a avid cricket fan. This was seen during his visit to Sri Lanka where he played cricket with some local children and said “I love cricket” and “It’s a shame we have to go catch some snakes now”. This was seen during the Crocodile Hunter episode “Island of the Snakes”. 
Living in Queensland most of his life, Irwin was also a fan of rugby league. As a teenager, he played for the Caloundra Sharks as a second-rower, and as an adult he was known to be a passionate Brisbane Broncos fan and was involved with the club on several occasions. On one occasion after turning up to training he asked if he could tackle the largest player, Shane Webcke. Despite being thrown to the ground and looking like he’d been crushed he was jovial about the experience. Irwin laughingly shared the experience with the Queensland State of Origin squad before the 2006 series. Irwin also supported rugby union, being a fan of the national team, the Wallabies. He once wore a Wallaby jersey during a demonstration at the zoo. A behind-the-scenes episode of The Crocodile Hunter showed Irwin and the crew finding a gas station in a remote part of Namibia to watch the Wallabies defeat France in the 1999 Rugby World Cup Final. Irwin was also a talented surfer. 
Irwin loved mixed martial arts competitions and trained with Greg Jackson in the fighting/grappling system of Gaidojutsu. 

Other personal trivia

  • Irwin was the feature of The Wiggles “Wiggly Safari” 2002 DVD release.
  • Irwin was particularly interested in Singapore Zoo, which he considered a sister institution of the Australia Zoo.
  • In 2004, during an interview with Larry King, he admitted that he had a fear of parrots, having received many painful bites from the animals in the past.
  • In 2005, in an interview for New Idea, he stated that he was afraid of being killed in a car crash.
  • Terri Irwin has stated in an interview that Irwin believed in God. Stories that he had joined a church a short time before his death appear to be urban legend.

Death

On 4 September 2006, Irwin was fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray spine while snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef, at Batt Reef, which is located off the coast of Port Douglas in north Queensland. Irwin was in the area filming his own documentary, Ocean’s Deadliest, but weather had stalled filming. Irwin decided to take the opportunity to film some shallow water shots for a segment in the television program his daughter Bindi Irwin was hosting, when, according to his friend and colleague, John Stainton, he swam too close to one of the stingrays. “He came on top of the stingray and the stingray’s barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart,” said Stainton, who was on board Irwin’s boat the Croc One
The events were caught on camera, and a copy of the footage was handed to the Queensland Police. After reviewing the footage of the incident and speaking to the cameraman who recorded it, marine documentary filmmaker and former spearfisherman Ben Cropp speculated that the stingray “felt threatened because Steve was alongside and there was the cameraman ahead.” In such a case, the stingray responds to danger by automatically flexing the serrated spine on its tail (which can measure up to 25 cm/10 in in length) in an upward motion. 
Cropp said Irwin had accidentally boxed the animal in. “It stopped and twisted and threw up its tail with the spike, and it caught him in the chest. It’s a defensive thing. It’s like being stabbed with a dirty dagger.” The stinging of Irwin by the bull ray was “a one-in-a-million thing,” Cropp told Time magazine. “I have swum with many rays, and I have only had one do that to me…” 
Initially, when Irwin’s colleague, John Stainton, was interviewed by CNN’s Larry King late on 4 September 2006 he denied the suggestion that Irwin had pulled the spine out of his chest, or that he had seen footage of the event, insisting that the anecdote was “absolute rubbish.” The following day, when he first described the video to the media, he stated, “Steve came over the top of the ray and the tail came up, and spiked him here [in the chest], and he pulled it out and the next minute he’s gone.” 
It is thought, in the absence of a coroner‘s report, that a combination of the toxins and the puncture wound from the spine caused Irwin to die of cardiac arrest, with most damage being inflicted by tears to arteries or other main blood vessels. A similar incident in Florida a month later in which a man survived a stingray barb through the heart suggested that Irwin’s removal of the barb might have caused or hastened his death. The coroner’s report has not yet been released. 
Crew members aboard his boat called the emergency services in the nearest city of Cairns and administered CPR as they rushed the boat to the nearby Low Islets to meet an emergency rescue helicopter. However, despite the best efforts of Irwin’s crew, medical staff pronounced him dead when they arrived a short time later. According to Dr Ed O’Loughlin, who treated Irwin, “it became clear fairly soon that he had non-survivable injuries. He had a penetrating injury to the left front of his chest. He had lost his pulse and wasn’t breathing.” 

Cairns, Queensland 

Irwin’s body was flown to a morgue in Cairns. His wife, Terri Irwin, was on a walking tour in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania at the time, and returned via a private plane from Devonport to the Sunshine Coast with their two children. 
Fatalities due to stingrays are infrequent and occurrences are not consistently collated, while there have been several others in Australia. Irwin’s death is believed to be the only fatality from a stingray ever captured on film. 
Stainton told CNN‘s Larry King “[The tape] should be destroyed”. In an ABC interview with Barbara Walters, Irwin’s wife Terri said she has not seen the film of her husband’s deadly encounter with the stingray and that it would not be shown on television. On 3 January 2007, the only video footage showing the events that led to Irwin’s death was handed over to Terri, who said that the video would never become public, and noted her family has not seen the video either. In an 11 January 2007 interview with Access Hollywood, Terri said that “all footage has been destroyed.” Despite these statements, numerous videos, including screamers, surfaced on sites such as YouTube claiming to be footage of Irwin’s death. Several pictures have also surfaced on Google Images. 
Production was completed on Ocean’s Deadliest, which aired for the first time on the Discovery Channel on 21 January 2007. The documentary was completed with footage shot in the weeks following the accident. According to Stainton, “Anything to do with the day that he died, that film is not available.” Perhaps to maintain the film’s original purpose as a nature documentary and prevent it from becoming a documentary of Irwin’s final days, his death is not mentioned in the film, aside from a still image of Irwin at the end alongside the text “In Memory of Steve Irwin”. 

Reaction

News of his death prompted widespread worldwide shock. Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard expressed his “shock and distress” at the death, saying that “Australia has lost a wonderful and colourful son.” Queensland Premier Peter Beattie commented in a Channel Seven television interview that Irwin “will be remembered as not just a great Queenslander, but a great Australian”. Several Australian news websites went down because of high web traffic and for the first time the top 10 list of most viewed stories for Fairfax Digital news sites were swept by one topic. Talk-back radio experienced a high volume of callers expressing their grief. Flags at the Sydney Harbour were lowered to half staff in honour of Irwin. 
The U.S. feed of the Animal Planet cable television channel aired a special tribute to Steve Irwin that started on Monday, 4 September 2006. The tribute continued with the Animal Planet channel showing highlights of Irwin’s more than 200 appearances on Discovery Networks shows. 
On the evening of his death, Enough Rope re-broadcast an interview between Irwin and Andrew Denton originally broadcast in 2003. CNN showed a repeat of his interview on Larry King Live, originally recorded in 2004. The Australian federal parliament opened on 5 September 2006 with condolence speeches by both the Prime Minister John Howard and the Leader of the Opposition Kim Beazley. The Seven Network aired a television memorial show as a tribute to Irwin on 5 September 2006, as did the Nine Network on 6 September 2006. 
Jay Leno delivered a tribute to Irwin, describing him as a great ambassador of Australia. Irwin appeared on Leno’s talk show on more than ten occasions. There were also tributes on Live with Regis & Kelly and Barbara WaltersThe View; on the former show, Kelly Ripa came close to tears with her praise of Irwin. 
Hundreds of people visited Australia Zoo to pay tribute to the deceased entertainer and conservationist. The day after his death, the volume of people visiting the zoo to pay their respects affected traffic so much that police reduced the speed limit around the Glass House Mountains Road and told motorists to expect delays. BBC reported on 13 September 2006 that thousands of fans have been to Australia Zoo since Irwin’s death, bringing flowers, candles, stuffed animals and messages of support. 
Dan Mathews, vice-president of animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said it was “no shock at all that Steve Irwin should die provoking a dangerous animal.” He added that “Irwin made his career out of antagonising frightened wild animals, that’s a very dangerous message to send to children.” He also made a comparison with another well known conservationist: “If you compare him with a responsible conservationist like Jacques Cousteau, he looks like a cheap reality TV star.” The son of Jacques Cousteau, Jean-Michel Cousteau, also a producer of wildlife documentaries, also took issue with Irwin’s hands-on approach to nature television. Cousteau said, “You don’t touch nature, you just look at it.” Although it “goes very well on television”, Irwin’s approach would “interfere with nature, jump on animals, grab them, hold them, and have this very, very spectacular, dramatic way of presenting things” which Cousteau felt is “very misleading”. 
Jacques Cousteau’s grandson, Philippe Cousteau Jr., however, was himself working with Irwin on the “Ocean’s Deadliest” documentary at the time of Irwin’s death, and later described him as “a remarkable individual.” Describing their project, he said, “I think why Steve was so excited about it that we were looking at these animals that people think of as, you know, dangerous and deadly monsters, and they’re not. They all have an important place in the environment and in the world. And that was what his whole message was about.” 
In the weeks after his death, Irwin’s conservation foundation Wildlife Warriors reported that thousands of people from around the world were offering their support via donations to the conservation group. 

Backlash against stingrays

In the weeks following Irwin’s death, at least ten stingrays were found dead and mutilated, with their tails cut off, on the beaches of Queensland, prompting speculation that they had been killed by fans of Irwin as an act of revenge. Michael Hornby, a friend of the late naturalist and executive director of Irwin’s Wildlife Warrior fund, condemned any revenge killings. 
“We just want to make it very clear that we will not accept and not stand for anyone who’s taken a form of retribution. That’s the last thing Steve would want,” he said. 

Funeral and memorials

Queensland Premier Peter Beattie extended the offer of a state funeral to Irwin’s family, an honour also agreed to by Prime Minister John Howard. The family decided that such a funeral would not have been appropriate, a sentiment echoed by many Australians outside media and political circles. Steve Irwin’s father, Bob Irwin, stated that his son would not have wanted such an honour, and would want to be remembered as an “ordinary bloke.” Beattie stated he would honour the decision of the Irwin family regarding their arrangements. Irwin was farewelled by family and friends at a private funeral service held at Caloundra on the afternoon of 9 September. The naturalist was buried in a private ceremony at the zoo on the same day. The grave is inaccessible to visitors of the Australia Zoo. 

Memorial service

A public service was held at the 5,500-seat Crocoseum at Australia Zoo on Wednesday morning 20 September 2006. The service was broadcast live, commercial free, in the eastern states of Australia, by free-to-air channels Seven, Nine and the ABC in Australia, as well as live on subscription channel Sky News Australia. In addition, it was broadcast live around the world, particularly the United States, where the service was broadcast commercial free on Animal Planet, as well as to Asia and Germany. A BBC camera crew was also sent especially to Australia to cover the memorial service for the United Kingdom. It is estimated that over 300 million viewers worldwide watched the service. The memorial was also rebroadcast on Animal Planet on 1 January 2007 as part of their New Year’s Day celebration, and again the following day. 

The “Crocoseum” at Australia Zoo, where Steve Irwin’s memorial service was held. 

Messages from around the world came from people including Hugh Jackman, Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Kelly Ripa and Larry King. Costner called him a fearless man who was brave enough to let people see him as he was. 
Prime Minister John Howard made an early speech at the service, as did Irwin’s father Bob and his daughter Bindi. 
Wes Mannion and John Stainton also made speeches and David Wenham read a poem. Anthony Field from The Wiggles partly hosted the service, often sharing the screen with various animals, from koalas to elephants, and Australian music star John Williamson sang True Blue, which was Irwin’s favourite song. Professor Craig Franklin of the University of Queensland told the crowd that the university was about to make Irwin an adjunct professor for his contributions to the study of crocodiles. In a symbolic finish to the service, Irwin’s truck was loaded up with gear and driven out of the arena for the last time as Williamson sang. 
In a final tribute, Australia Zoo staff spelled out Irwin’s catchphrase “Crikey” in yellow flowers as Irwin’s truck was driven from the “Crocoseum” for the last time to end the service. Flags on the Sydney Harbour Bridge flew at half mast on the day of the memorial service. 

Other Australian memorials

  • Several permanent memorials for Irwin have already been considered or announced. Premier Peter Beattie suggested a national park be named after Irwin or a permanent memorial might be constructed in his honour, though the details of the structure would depend on Irwin’s family.
  • On 1 January 2007, Glasshouse Mountains Road, the road that runs by Steve and Terri Irwin’s Australia Zoo, was officially renamed to “Steve Irwin Way”.
  • There will be a nature park in Australia named after Irwin, the Australian federal government announced in July 2007.

American memorials

  • Animal Planet is also creating the Steve Irwin Crocodile Hunter Fund called “The Crikey Fund” to “provide a way for people from across the globe to make contributions in Irwin’s honour to support wildlife protection, education and conservation”.
  • On the Happy Feet DVD, there is a deleted scene where the main character Mumble meets an albatross voiced by Irwin and a blue whale. The scene was unfinished at first but was included on the DVD release to honour Irwin’s memory as Irwin had insisted on being in a film that contained a message about the environment. However, they took this scene off the movie and decided to let Irwin play an elephant seal named Trev.

Indian memorial

  • A crocodile research centre in Neyyar Wildlife Sanctuary was named by the Kerala government after Steve Irwin.

The state’s forest and wildlife department is perhaps the first government body in the world to name a memorial after Irwin, whose documentaries on wildlife and reptiles endeared him to thousands of viewers. The centre is now called the Steve Irwin Crocodile Rehabilitation and Research Centre. 

Death anniversary

On 4 September 2007, Australian fans gathered at the Irwin family zoo on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland to commemorate the first anniversary of Irwin’s death. State Premier Peter Beattie described Irwin as one of the state’s greatest cultural ambassadors. On 15 November, Irwin’s widow Terri and children, Bindi and Bob, remembered his life and achievements on “Steve Irwin Day.”

2 (February) + 19 (S is the 19th letter of the alphabet) + 20 (t is the 20th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 46 
So from ages zero to twenty-seven he had the numbers 2 (February), 44 (sum of the first three letters of the name) and 46 (2+44=46) going on. 
2 = Empathy.  Understanding.  Receptivity.  Silent knowing.  Intuition.  Listening to your inner voice.  Trusting your inner voice.

August 30, 2010

A new video of 33 men trapped in a mine under Chile’s Atacama Desert shows them sending greetings to their families, talking about how they are doing better since receiving food and breaking into tears as they talk about loved ones.

In the video released Sunday, the men are shirtless because of the heat in the mine and wearing what look like white surgical pants, special clothing sent down to help keep them dry.

Most are upbeat, expressing gratitude to their families and the rescuers for the support they are receiving via handwritten notes sent to them through three small bore holes. Authorities also send food, water, medicine and other goods to them through the three holes.

But when it comes time to speak about their wives and children, many of the men break down.

“I’m sending my greetings to Angelica. I love you so much, darling,” says 30-year-old Osman Araya, as his voice chokes and he begins to cry. “Tell my mother, I love you guys so much. I’ll never leave you, I will fight to the end to be with you.”

Araya and 32 fellow miners were trapped by the Aug. 5 collapse of the main shaft of the San Jose gold and silver mine in northern Chile. They only gained contact with the outside after 17 days — during which they rationed 48-hours’ worth of food and dug for water in the ground. On Monday, the men will equal a mark set by three miners who survived 25 days trapped in a flooded mine in southern China last year. Few other rescues have taken more than two weeks.

In the video, one miner explains to the family of 28-year-old Ariel Ticona that he didn’t want to appear on camera — apparently because he is shy — but that he was sending his love to them and that, according to an unidentified speaker, he “is super happy and he is super, super, super well!”

The latest video, in contrast to the first 45-minute video released by the government on Thursday, shows little of the men’s surroundings. Instead, it appears meant as a video postcard for loved ones, as each of the 12 men who speak to the camera are given about 30 seconds to talk.

At one point, the camera pans to a larger group of men, and several animated, joking voices can be heard throughout the tape.

One unidentified man, who squints in the light shone on his face as do most of the miners, said he is thankful “for all your efforts out there.”

Another man shown says he is doing much better because of the food and water the miners have received.

The miners will have to aid in their own escape by clearing thousands of tons of rock that will fall as a rescue hole is drilled toward them.

“The miners are going to have to take out all that material as it falls,” Andres Sougarret, Codelco’s head engineer on the operation, told The Associated Press Sunday in a phone interview.

After drilling three small bore holes in recent weeks to create lines of communication with the miners and deliver basic food and medicine, Chile’s state-owned Codelco mining company will begin boring a rescue hole Monday afternoon that will be wide enough to pull the men up through 2,300 feet (700 meters) of earth.

The first step will be to drill a “pilot hole” similar in size to the other three. Then much larger machine cutters will slowly grind through that hole, forcing crushed rock to fall down into the mine shaft area near the trapped men.

Failure to keep the bottom clear of debris could quickly plug the hole, delaying a rescue that officials say could take three to four months.

In all, the trapped miners will have to clear between 3,000 and 4,000 tons of rock, work that will require crews of about a half-dozen men working in shifts 24 hours a day.

The men have basic clearing equipment, such as wheel barrows and industrial-sized battery-powered sweepers, Sougarret said. The hole will likely end up several hundred yards (meters) from their living area in the mine’s shelter, giving the men room to maneuver and store the rocks, he added.

Sougarret declined to estimate how long the work would take, saying it would depend on how each step went.

Once drilling begins, the team will have to decide whether to fit the wider hole with metal casing, often used to seal a hole and prevent collapses in the walls.

“We may not have to use it in this case because the rock is really high quality, really strong,” he said.

On Sunday, Mining Minister Laurence Golborne reiterated the government’s estimate of three to four months to rescue the men, rejecting local reports citing engineers who said it could be done in much less time.

Golborne said that experts had analyzed 10 different methods to get the men out, will continue to study other options, but that “nothing has yet been found that will be quicker.”

Normally, after completing a pilot hole, the opening is enlarged by drilling from the bottom up. The drill, hanging at the bottom of the pilot hole, is reached through existing shafts in a mine and then fitted with the machine cutters, which then blast through rock as they are raised.

In this case, however, there is no way to get those large cutters to the bottom of the mine; if there was a hole large enough to reach it, the men would already have been rescued.

Araya said that knowledge gained drilling the initial holes, which are between 20 and 100 yards (meters) from the shelter, would give the team digging the rescue hole a head start. For example, while penetrating rock, the circular motion of the bits causes the drill to veer right. In this case, the especially hard rock exaggerates that, making constant correction necessary, he said.

From the moment the mine collapsed, the trapped men have had a central role in keeping themselves alive — getting to the safety chamber, rationing food and keeping order with extraordinary discipline.

Still, many questions remain. What physical and mental condition will the men be in when they are called on to help save themselves?

“We will keep them alive, in good shape and health,” said Golborne. “That is something that is happening in parallel while we are digging the larger hole.”

Other steps are being taken to keep the men as strong as possible — physically and mentally.

Telephone wire was being snaked down one of the bore holes on Sunday, and Golborne said that within a few hours one representative from each family would be allowed to talk to one of the miners — the first verbal communication they would have. Until now, handwritten notes have been passed through tubes sent up and down the bore holes.

Physically, many of the men have severe skin irritations from the hot, wet conditions underground and were sent special clothing that dries quicker and also small mats to sleep on so they don’t have to rest directly on the damp ground.

For now, the men have some time to prepare before they start the arduous task of hauling away the rock that stands between them and freedom, but questions remain.

Sougarret, the operation leader, said it will be one to two months before large quantities of rocks start falling. Can the men do such hard labor for a couple months just on food that will fit down the narrow tubes? And then there is what will be a harrowing rescue: each man will be pulled up through the 26-inch (66-centimeter) hole in a tube, a ride that will take about an hour each.

Trapped Chilean miner Esteban Rojas (r.) sent a proposal to his longtime sweetheart, Jessica Yanez. They will have to wait several months, however, until rescuers reach the miners.

Monday, August 30th 2010, 9:12 AM

Esteban Rojas won’t let 2,300 feet of rock stand between him and a church wedding with the woman he loves.

Rojas, one of the 33 Chilean trapped miners since an Aug. 5 cave-in has sent a letter officially proposing to his long-time sweetheart, London’s Daily Mirror reported.

The 44-year-old had wed Jessica Yanez, 43, in a civil ceremony 25 years ago, but had never given her the church wedding that is customary in Chile. So he sent his proposal in a letter sent up from the air pocket where he and his fellow miners are trapped.

“Please keep praying that we get out of this alive. And when I do get out, we will buy a dress and get married,” he wrote on the scrap of paper, according to CNN.

Rojas and Yanez got to speak briefly – for 20 seconds – by phone Sunday through a line jury-rigged through the mine. The pair used that time to start planning their wedding, CNN reported.

The couple has three children and two grandchildren together.

“I thought he was never going to ask me. We have talked about it before, but he never asked me,” Yanez told the Daily Mail.

“He knows that however long it takes, I’ll wait for him, because with him I’ve been through good and bad.”

A relative of Yonni Barrio, one of 33 trapped miners, touches a portrait of him at the camp where relatives wait outside the collapsed San Jose mine in Copiapo, Chile, Sunday Aug. 29, 2010. The trapped miners half mile underground will have to aid their own escape by clearing rock that will fall as the rescue hole is drilled, the engineer in charge of drilling said Sunday. The mine collapsed on Aug. 5.

religious ceremony for trapped chilean miners
Monday 30 August 2010 17.08 BST

The 33 Chilean miners trapped deep underground have spoken for the first time to family members waiting for them on the surface.

The brief phone conversations late yesterday brought a measure of reassurance to families who have grown increasingly worried about the ability of the men to survive the estimated three months of the rescue operation.

Engineers at the mine in Chile‘s Atacama desert are awaiting for drilling parts from Germany to begin the initial digging of what is expected to be the main rescue shaft.

“The families have had the chance to communicate by telephone with them, so of course there have been moments of great emotion,” said Ximena Matas, the governor of the Atacama region.

She said the families “listened with great interest and they both felt and realised that the men are well. This has been a very important moment, which no doubt strengthens their [the miners'] morale”.

Family members received the first of what are intended to be daily phone calls in a cabin set up alongside one of the three boreholes now connecting the miners with the surface.

Portions of the conversations were made public, including the promise by miner Esteban Rojas that he would marry his girlfriend of 25 years upon his rescue from the collapsed tunnel.

As the phone connection is still precarious, family members were given just 20-30 seconds to say hello and send a short message to their loved one.

“I could hear him fine,” said Jessica Cortes, who spoke to her husband Victor Zamora.

“He is aware that the rescue is not going to happen today, that it will take some time. He asked us to stay calm as everything is going to be OK.

“He sounded relaxed and since it was so short I didn’t manage to ask anything. Twenty seconds was nothing.”

Of all the unlucky miners, Zamora is possibly the unluckiest. After losing his job in Chile’s 8.8-magnitude earthquake in February which destroyed his workplace in Talcahuano, near the epicentre, Zamora began work hundreds of miles north, at the San Jose Mine.

“He’s a vehicle mechanic and doesn’t even enter the mine,” Cortes said. “He went in that day because a vehicle had broken down [deep] inside the mine … At first they told us he had been crushed [to death].”

The phone conversations follow a new video of the miners showing the men in apparently good spirits, although many broke into tears as they sent messages of love for their families.

“I’m sending my greetings to Angelica. I love you so much, darling,” said Osman Araya, 30, as his voice choked and he began to cry.

“Tell my mother, I love you guys so much. I’ll never leave you, I will fight to the end to be with you.”

Tomorrow, the miners will enter Day 26, passing the mark set by three Chinese miners who last year spent 25 days drinking contaminated water and chewing coal to survive in a flooded mine in Guizhou province, China.

The miners in Chile are expected to be trapped for at least another 8-16 weeks, making their ordeal by far the longest known enforced stay in an underground mine.

Vaccinations have been given to the men to guard against tetanus and diphtheria. But skin problems, poor ventilation and constant humidity continue to take their toll on the health of the trapped men.

Yesterday, Chile’s mining minister, Laurence Golborne, repeated earlier estimates that it would take three to four months to rescue the men, rejecting reports quoting engineers who said it could be done in much less time.

Golborne said relief workers were studying 10 separate rescue options, but that “nothing has yet been found that will be quicker”.

Monday, 23 August 2010

Engineers reinforced a lifeline today to 33 miners entombed deep inside a Chilean gold and copper mine, preparing to keep them supplied with food, water, medicine and communications during the four months it may take to carve a tunnel wide enough to pull them out. 
A team of doctors and psychiatric experts also arrived Monday at the remote mine, implementing a plan to maintain the miners’ sanity as well.

“We need to urgently establish what psychological situation they are in. They need to understand what we know up here at the surface, that it will take many weeks for them to reach the light,” Health Minister Jaime Manalich explained.

 Engineers worked through the night to reinforce the six-inch (15 cm) -wide bore-hole that broke through to the miners’ refuge on Sunday, more than 2,257 feet (688 meters) below the surface. Using a long hose, they coated the walls with a metallic gel to decrease the risk of more rock falls in the unstable mine and make it easier to pass material in capsules nicknamed “palomas,” or doves.

 The first capsules — which take about an hour to descend from the surface — will include water and food in the form of a high-energy glucose gel to miners who have almost certainly lost significant weight since they were trapped with limited food supplies on Aug. 5.

 Also being sent down are questionnaires to determine each miners’ condition, along with medicines and small microphones to enable them to speak with their families during their long wait. Rescue leader Andre Sougarret said the communications equipment could begin working within hours, and that officials were organizing the families into small groups to make their talks as orderly as possible.

 An enormous machine with diamond-tipped drills capable of carving a person-sized tunnel through solid rock at a velocity of 20 meters a day was on its way Monday to the San Jose gold and copper mine outside Copiapo in north-central Chile.

 Engineers also were boring two more narrow shafts to the trapped men to ensure that their lifelines would remain intact while the larger tunnel is being carved.

 It will be important for the men’s well-being to keep them busy and well-supported throughout this ordeal, Manalich said.

 “There has to be leadership established, and to support them and prepare them for what’s coming, which is no small thing,” he said.

 Euphoria that their men survived the collapse of their mine, and anxiety for what’s coming next meant for a sleepless night for the miners’s families after a drill broke through to their refuge Sunday and came back up with two notes attached, one saying all 33 were in good condition in an underground refuge.

 “We didn’t sleep. We stayed up all night long hoping for more news. They said that new images would appear, so we were up hoping to see them,” said one, Carolina Godoy.

 Dawn broke behind a cold fog on the surface of the gold and copper mine in Chile’s Atacama desert, where an intense rescue effort finally reached the miners on Sunday after weeks of missteps, new cave-ins and other false starts.

 Now the plan is to carve a wider tunnel, just big enough for the men to be pulled out one by one. That equipment works much more slowly than the bore that drilled the 15-centimeter-wide shaft used to make first contact.

 That narrower drill broke through 2,257 feet (688 meters) of solid rock to reach the emergency refuge where the miners have gathered. The trapped men quickly tied two notes to the end of a probe that rescuers pulled to the surface, announcing in big red letters: “All 33 of us are fine in the shelter.”

 “Today all of Chile is crying with excitement and joy,” President Sebastian Pinera said at the mine.

 And where many were beginning to give up hope, the scene above ground became a celebration Sunday night, with a barbecue for the miners’ families, roving musicians, lit candles and Chilean flags making the barren landscape seem festive.

 The men already have been trapped underground longer than all but a few miners rescued in recent history. Last year, three miners survived 25 days trapped in a flooded mine in southern China, and two miners in northeastern China were rescued after 23 days in 1983. Few other rescues have taken more than two weeks.

 The miners’ survival after 17 days is very unusual, but since they’ve made it this far, they should emerge physically fine, said Davitt McAteer, who was assistant secretary for mine safety and health at the U.S. Labor Department under President Bill Clinton.

 “The health risks in a copper and gold mine are pretty small if you have air, food and water,” McAteer said.

 Still, he said the stress of being trapped underground for a long period of time can be significant.

 “There is a psychological pattern there that we’ve looked at,” McAteer said. But “they’ve established communication with the guys; there are people who can talk them through that.”

 Two-way communication may be key to keeping them thinking positive.

 A video camera lowered down the probe shaft Sunday showed some of the miners, stripped to the waist in the underground heat, waving happily. But they weren’t able to establish audio contact, Pinera said.

 “I saw eight or nine of them. They were waving their hands. They got close to the camera and we could see their eyes, their joy,” the president said.

 The miners seemed to be aware that their rescue may take a long time, according to one of them, Mario Gomez, perhaps the eldest of the trapped men at 63, who wrote a note to his wife.

 “Even if we have to wait months to communicate. … I want to tell everyone that I’m good and we’ll surely come out OK,” Gomez wrote, scrawling the words on a sheet of notebook paper the miners tied to the probe. “Patience and faith. God is great and the help of my God is going to make it possible to leave this mine alive.”

 Mine officials and relatives of the workers had hoped the men reached a shelter below where the tunnel collapsed Aug. 5 at the San Jose gold and copper mine about 530 miles (850 kilometers) north of the capital, Santiago. But they had said the shelter’s emergency air and food supplies would last only 48 hours.

 Gomez wrote that the miners used vehicles for light and a backhoe to dig a channel to retrieve underground water.

 It was unclear whether their air supply was in danger of running out.

 Rescuers had drilled repeatedly in an effort to reach the shelter, but failed seven times. They blamed the errors on the mining company’s maps. According to Gomez’s note, at least some of those earlier probes were close enough that the trapped miners heard them. The eighth attempt finally worked.

 Gomez’s note, which the president read aloud on live television, focused on expressions of faith and love for his family. But frustration also showed through in one line, where he declared that “this company has got to modernize.”

 Chile is the world’s top copper producer and a leading gold producer, and has some of the world’s most advanced mining operations. But both the company that owns the mine, San Esteban, and the National Mining and Geology Service have been criticized for allegedly failing to comply with regulations. In 2007, an explosion at the San Jose mine killed three workers.

 Liliana Ramirez couldn’t believe it when Chile’s mining minister said her husband had sent a note to his “Dearest Lila.”

 “I know my husband is strong, and at 63, is the most experienced miner who could lead his co-workers,” she said, but she vowed to keep him above ground once he’s rescued.

 Authorities and relatives of the miners hugged, climbed a nearby hill, planted 33 flags and sang Chile’s national anthem after discovering the miners had survived.

 Along the length of Chile, horns honked, flags waved and people watched the drama unfold live on television and computer screens. It was a rush of good news in a country still rebuilding from a magnitude-8.8 earthquake Feb. 27 and its resulting tsunami, which together killed at least 521 people and left 200,000 homeless.

On August 5, 2010, the roof of the San José copper-gold mine collapsed, leaving 33 miners trapped underground.[1][2]

The San José Mine is about 45 kilometres (28 mi) north of Copiapó, Chile. The miners were trapped at approximately 700 metres (2,300 ft) deep and about 5 kilometres (3 mi) from the mine entrance. The mine had a history of instability that had led to previous accidents, including one death.[3] A government report from July 2010 warned that the mine owners had failed “to reinforce the roof …”. The lack of reinforcement “had led to [an earlier] collapse of the roof.” There has been controversy over why the mine was not closed down earlier.

Some, including lawyers representing the mining company, suspect that the owners of the mine will declare bankruptcy after the men are rescued.

Chile has a long tradition in mining, which developed during the 20th century and made the country the world’s top producer of copper.[5] Since 2000, an average of 34 people have died every year in mining accidents in Chile, with a high of 43 in 2008, according to a review of data collected by the state regulatory agency SERNAGEOMIN.[4]

The mine is owned by Empresa Minera San Esteban, which has an allegedly poor safety record and has suffered a series of mishaps, with several workers being killed in recent years.[3][6] Between 2004 and 2010 the company received 42 fines for breaching safety regulations.[7] The mine was shut down after an accident in 2007 when relatives of a miner who had died sued company executives, but the mine was reopened in 2008,[8] despite failing to comply with all regulations, a matter still under investigation according to mining committee Senator Baldo Prokurica.[4] Due to budget constraints, there were only three inspectors for Atacama Region‘s 884 mines.[7]

Chilean copper mine workers are among the highest-paid miners in South America.[9] Although the accident itself has put into question mine safety in Chile, serious accidents in large mines are rare, as they are either owned by the state copper mining company, Codelco, or by multinational companies.[5] However, smaller mines — such as the one at San Jose — have generally lower safety standards.[5]

The collapse occurred on August 5, 2010, at 14:00 (UTC-4), as reported by the company San Esteban to the authorities. The rescue efforts started on August 6, supervised by Minister of Labor and Social Welfare Camila Merino, Undersecretary of Mining Pablo Wagner, and the director of the National Mining and Geology Service (SERNAGEOMIN) Alejandro Vío.[10] Oficina Nacional de Emergencias del Ministerio del Interior (ONEMI – National Emergencies Office of the Interior Ministry) reported that day the names of the 33 miners trapped in the mine,[2] including Franklin Lobos Ramírez, a retired Chilean footballer.[1] Minister of Mining Laurence Golborne was in Ecuador at the time of the disaster, and moved to the area on August 7.[10]

A dust cloud occurred after the collapse, blinding the miners for six hours and causing eye irritation for some.[11] The miners tried to escape through a ventilation shaft, but the ladder was missing, and the shaft later caved in.[12] The company had been ordered to install ladders after a previous accident.[7]

[edit] Workers

The workers in the mine consists of 1 Bolivian and 32 Chileans.[1][13] Franklin Lobos was a footballer and a member of the national team of Chile. Lobos played in the qualifying round of the 1984 Olympic Games.

[edit] Rescue attempts

[edit] The ventilation shaft

A second collapse occurred on August 7 when rescuers were trying to gain access via a ventilation shaft, and rescuers were forced to use heavy machinery.[14] President Sebastián Piñera returned to Chile to take charge of the emergency response. At the time he was in Colombia to attend a presidential inauguration.[15]

[edit] Developments

Diagram of the mining accident

Perforation drills were used to make boreholes about the width of a grapefruit to find the miners.[16] The rescue effort was complicated by out-of-date maps and several boreholes drifted off-target.[17] The particularly hard rock exaggerated the drill’s tendency to drift.[18] On August 19, one of the probes reached the area where the miners were believed to be trapped, but was unable to locate them.[19]

On August 22, at 07:15 (UTC-4), another probe reached a ramp, at 688 meters (2,257 ft) underground, about 20 meters from a shelter where the miners were expected to have taken refuge.[20] The miners quickly wrote notes and attached them to the drill bit with insulation tape, surprising rescuers when they pulled it out.[21] At 15:17 (UTC-4) President Sebastián Piñera showed the media a note sent from the miners’ shelter, written on a piece of paper with a red pencil, that confirmed the miners were alive.

“We are fine in the shelter the 33 [of us]“, the note sent by the trapped miners.

The note read: “Estamos bien en el refugio los 33″ (English: “We are fine in the shelter the 33 [of us]“).[22]

Hours later, cameras used in the probe into the mine made contact with the miners, taking the first images of the trapped workers.[23] The miners had a 50 square meter shelter with two long benches,[24] but ventilation problems had led them to move out to a tunnel.[25] In addition to the shelter, they had some 2 km of galleries in which to move around.[11] The miners used backhoes to dig for trapped water.[26] Some water was obtained from the radiators of vehicles inside the mineshaft.[11] Health officials are running tests on the water.[11] Food supplies were limited, and the men may have lost 8 to 9 kg (17-20 pounds) each.[25] Although the emergency supplies were intended for only two or three days, the miners rationed them to last for 17 days until contact with the surface.[27] They consumed “two little spoonfuls of tuna, a sip of milk and a biscuit every 48 hours” and a morsel of peach.[11][26] They used the batteries of a truck to power their helmet lamps.[25]

On August 23, voice contact was made with the miners. They reported having few medical problems. The doctor in charge of the rescue operation reported to the media that “they have considerably less discomfort than we might have expected after spending 18 days inside the mine, at 700 meters deep and under high temperatures and high humidity”. The doctors also reported that they already have been provided with a 5% glucose solution and a drug to prevent stomach ulcers resulting from the stress caused by lack of food all week.[28] Material is sent down in 5 foot long blue plastic capsules nicknamed palomas (“doves”), taking an hour to reach the miners.[24][29] Engineers coated the boreholes with metallic gel in order to ensure the integrity of the shafts and ease the passage of the capsules.[30] In addition to high-energy glucose gels, rehydration tablets, and medicine, rescuers also sent down oxygen after the miners reported there was not enough air.[29] Delivery of solid food began a few days later.[29][31] Two other boreholes were completed – one for enriched oxygen, the second for video conferences to allow daily chats with family members.[31] Relatives may also write letters, but were asked to keep them optimistic.[24]

Out of concern for the miners’ mental health, rescuers hesitated to tell them the rescue might take months, but the miners were informed on August 25.[32]

The group of miners was described as very disciplined.[18] Psychiatrists and doctors are working with the rescue effort to ensure the miners keep busy and mentally focused.[29] Fluorescent lights with timers will be sent down to keep the men on a normal schedule by imitating day and night.[31] The miners affirmed their capability to participate in rescue efforts, saying “There are a large number of professionals who are going to help in the rescue efforts from down here.”[33] Psychologists believe the miners having a role in their own destiny is important for maintaining motivation and optimism.[33] They divided themselves into three groups, one being responsible for the palomas, a second in charge of security and preventing further rock falls, and a third focusing on health.[33] Luis Urzúa became the overall leader and the oldest miner, Mario Gómez, was chosen for spiritual guidance.[33]

It was determined that Johny Barrios was the most qualified of the miners to administer medicine and communicate on health issues.[34] Barrios vaccinated the group against tetanus and diphtheria.[18] Many of the miners developed severe skin problems due to the hot and wet conditions.[18] They were sent quick-drying clothing and small mats so they do not have to sleep directly on the ground.[18]

Health Minister Jaime Manalich stated, “The situation is very similar to the one experienced by astronauts who spend months on end in the space station.”[35] NASA in the United States has agreed to provide assistance on how to survive the conditions.[36] NASA is providing a great deal of technical expertise to help rescue the miners. NASA has done many experiments in extreme isolation, and is using its expertise to help the miners.[37]

President Piñera has dismissed top officials of Chile’s mining regulator and has vowed to undertake a major overhaul of the agency in light of the accident.[3] 18 mines were shut down in the days following the San José accident and a further 300 may be ordered to close.[34] Relatives have begun to file lawsuits against the company and a judge has frozen $2 million in assets despite the company’s claims of not having money.[34]

[edit] Future plans

Rescue officials estimate that it will take three to four months to complete the rescue of the trapped miners,[23] but some mining experts believe that it can take two to three months if there are no setbacks.[38] The Strata 950 drilling rig will be used to produce the escape tunnel.[38] An estimated 500 kg of rocks will fall down every hour.[34] Working in shifts 24 hours a day, the miners will keep the passage clear with industrial-sized battery-powered sweepers and wheel barrows at their disposal.[18]

The diameter of the rescue tunnel will be 66 cm (26 inches),[11] meaning each miner will have to have a waistline of no more than 90 cm (35 inches) to escape.[11][39] In order to ensure they are the correct size an exercise regime is being developed to keep them in shape.[32] The men will be extracted in a narrow metal cage,[38] with each trip to the surface taking an hour.[18] On August 25, it was reported that drilling should begin by the end of the week after a route is determined, without causing another collapse.[35]

Another option being considered as of August 29th is to use a Schramm T130XD air drill which could possibly complete the drill in 6 weeks.

A North Carolina woman is alleging that “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino engaged in an affair with her husband, and says in court documents that the pair “recorded” their sexual encounters.

Paula Cook, who separated from her husband, Antwaun Cook, in June, filed the documents — seeking child custody, alimony and other monetary support — Wednesday in Mecklenburg County District Court.

The documents allege Antwaun Cook began the affair with Barrino, 26, in August 2009 after the pair met at a Charlotte-area T-Mobile store where Cook is employed.

Barrino — the 2004 winner of the popular Fox show and an eight-time Grammy nominee — treated Cook to a lavish lifestyle over the course of their affair, flying him to Atlanta, Georgia; Miami, Florida; New York; Los Angeles, California; and Barbados, the documents allege.

The pair “have at times recorded their illicit sexual activity,” according to the documents.

A month after Paula Cook separated from her husband, Barrino is alleged to have interrupted a phone conversation between the estranged couple, telling Cook, “He don’t want you. Maybe the next time you get a husband you’ll know how to keep him. That’s why he is here with me,” according to the documents.

Barrino has appeared publicly with a tattoo on her left shoulder reading “Cook,” an apparent tribute to Antwaun Cook, who is said to have a similar tattoo in the same place on his shoulder, according to the documents.

The alleged affair was first reported in November by gossip magazines and websites.

Barrino and her record label Sony Music declined to comment on the documents Sunday.

Paula Cook says that as a result of the affair, her husband became more and more withdrawn from their marriage, attributing late nights and other absences to work, the documents say.

“As [Paula Cook] contemplated ways to save her marriage and family, [Antwaun Cook] and Ms. Barrino continued to enjoy their open and notorious relationship without her knowledge and/or consent,” the documents say.

Paula Cook is seeking custody of her two children, ages 6 and 2, with Antwaun Cook, as well as child support, alimony, attorney’s fees and ownership of the couple’s former marital home.

Last Friday we shared a heartwarming video of Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley(notes) helping a fan propose to his girlfriend. This video is like that in no way.

After practice one day this week, Chris Cooley recruited a young fan to hide in Donovan McNabb’s(notes) locker and pop out when the new Redskins quarterback returned. Though predictable, the result is still pretty hilarious.

(Note: Disregard any message saying the selected item is not available. The video will play immediately after.) 

Excellent execution by young Jacob. McNabb’s reaction was great also; I’d have screamed like a little girl. Everyone in the locker room handled the joke very calmly too.

Volunteers claim Ashley Kirilow raised $20,000, but she say it was less than $5,000.   
Fri Aug 6 2010

They all thought she was dying of cancer — and they all handed her cash.

Ashley Anne Kirilow, a 23-year-old Burlington native, admits she faked cancer, ran a bogus charity and collected thousands of dollars from hundreds of people.

She shaved her head and eyebrows, plucked her eyelashes and starved herself to look like a chemotherapy patient. She told anyone she met she had been disowned by drug-addicted parents, or that they were dead.

Both parents are alive and well, each in separate marriages with three young children. They both say they did all they could to support their troubled child.

“What I did was wrong,” Ashley said Thursday night. “I was trying to be noticed. I was trying to get my family back together. I didn’t want to feel like I’m nothing anymore. It went wrong, it spread like crazy, and then it seemed like the whole world knew.”

Over the last year, Ashley endeared herself to the all-ages music and skateboard scenes across the GTA and befriended groups of idealistic and energetic teenagers looking for an outlet for their optimism.

They embraced Ashley’s simple cause — pocket change for cancer research — and were inspired by her heartbreaking story. Teams of volunteers organized benefit concerts in her honour, designed T-shirts and made online tribute videos.

“I thought she was an angel,” said Nikki Jumper, 19. “I wanted to be a friend for her because she didn’t seem to have anyone.”

All donations were made in cash and given directly to Ashley in rolls of coins and stuffed envelopes. Nobody asked for a receipt.

The charity was never registered and consisted of little more than a Facebook page.

Over the course of a year, Ashley convinced local businesses and small-scale music promoters to join the cause. She persuaded a legitimate Toronto-based cancer-awareness organization — led by Newmarket skateboarding heartthrob, Rob Dyer — to fly her to Disney World.

Dyer refused to be interviewed for this story, but his organization, Skate4Cancer, released a statement earlier this week disavowing itself of Ashley and denying any formal or informal affiliation.

“Skate4Cancer’s involvement with Ms. Kirilow was based solely on fulfilling what the organization believed to be a legitimate final wish from a terminally ill individual.”

Her dedicated followers say they are shocked, betrayed and furious.

But Ashley’s parents are not surprised.

They say the latest allegations follow a pattern of behaviour since childhood, and that Ashley is manipulative, desperately craves fame and uses people to get what she wants.

“She loved playing the victim,” said her father, Mike Kirilow, a self-employed home renovator. “Because it gave her control over people.”

***

Late Thursday night, Ashley contacted the Star and admitted to the allegations against her, but disputed the amount of money volunteers say she raised through her charity.

While volunteers claim she raised $20,000, she said it was less than $5,000. She does not dispute the $9,000 raised at a Burlington benefit last September, saying that money was for her personally and not connected to the charity.

“I dug myself a big hole that I couldn’t get out of,” Ashley said. “And there’s nobody to blame but me.”

She said she wants to find a way to give all the money back.

***

In late 2008, Ashley was treated in hospital for a benign lump in one of her breasts. After that procedure, she began telling people she had breast cancer.

She also said she had brain cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer and ovarian cancer, at various stages and in various combinations. She claimed to have only a few months to live.

In mid-January, Ashley called her father. They had talked only once in the previous four years. She told him she had breast cancer and a brain tumour, and that she needed a bone-marrow transplant or she would be dead within six months.

“At this stage I thought this was another story, but I went along,” said an exasperated Kirilow.

The next day, Kirilow tried calling his daughter to find out her oncologist’s name, but she wouldn’t answer his calls.

After 10 days of trying to reach Ashley, he said he called and left a message on her cellphone saying that if she did not call back he would call the police, tell them she had collapsed and they could knock down the door.

He said Ashley called him back right away and told him: “Stay the f— out of my life.”

Kirilow did not hear from his daughter again for more than a year.

In the meantime, Ashley’s father and stepmother called the hospitals where Ashley said she had been treated for cancer, but they had no record of her.

In April 2009, Ashley called her biological mother — with whom she has had little contact since she was 14 — to say she had cancer and needed money for chemotherapy.

“The only thing she ever wanted from me was money, and I couldn’t ever give it to her,” said Cindy Edwards, a former school bus driver who now lives in Brantford.

Edwards said she told Ashley that chemo was fully covered in Canada and she could not give her any money. “I was crying, I didn’t know what was going on, I tried to tell her she was beautiful,” Edwards said, adding that Ashley responded: “Well, I’m just calling right now to tell you, before I die, that you’re the worst mother in the world.”

When Adam Catley, 22, heard Ashley was broke, alone and dying of cancer, he found her a place to live rent-free with some of his friends.

“Obviously I wanted to do what I could to help her,” Catley said.

On Sept. 27, Catley and a group of friends organized a benefit for Ashley at The Queen’s Head, Catley’s father’s pub in downtown Burlington.

They charged a $20 cover, bands travelled in from out of town at their own expense, Labatt donated the beer, staff donated all of their tips, and the bar itself donated the night’s profits.

Proceeds totalled almost $9,000, Catley said, and he gave the cash to Ashley in an envelope the next day.

Photos from the event show Ashley completely hairless, with a scarf around her head. “She’s good, I’ll tell you that,” said Catley. “She had me 100 per cent.”

Weeks after the benefit at The Queen’s Head, Ashley started a Facebook group to announce a charity she was starting called Change for a Cure.

“Together we can ‘Change’ the world one penny at a time! ?” reads the tagline. In two days, the group amassed 1,000 members. Within a few months, it had more than 4,000.

Ashley claimed she was raising money to donate to the University of Alberta’s research into dichloroacetate, or DCA, a prospective cancer treatment. She said she would walk from Burlington to Edmonton — starting April 29, her 23rd birthday — to deliver the money to the university in person and petition Canadians along the way.

On Tuesday, a communications associate for the university’s Faculty of Medicine said they were not affiliated with Ashley in any way. But on Thursday, the director of communications for the faculty said they could not confirm, one way or the other, whether Ashley had ever made a donation.

Ashley set up Change for a Cure booths at all-ages concerts across the GTA and collected coins in glass jars.

A performer and promoter in Newmarket, Jamie Counsell organized two benefit concerts for Ashley at the Sharon Hall in January and March, raising a total of $1,550 from the $10 cover charge and cash donations. He handed the cash directly to Ashley.

Counsell, 17, said Ashley told him an accountant was handling the money.

“We figured that if she’s got an accountant dealing with it, we don’t need to worry about it.”

The group’s core volunteers say at least $20,000 was raised in the name of Change for a Cure, based on coins rolled by volunteers, individual donations and benefit concerts — in addition to the nearly $9,000 given to Ashley personally from The Queen’s Head benefit.

During this time Ashley was also using four credit cards and running up massive personal debts.

Last summer, Ashley flew to Australia “to live out her last days in paradise,” according to friends. She returned two weeks later, saying she had contracted an infection and was surely to die soon.

By the end of 2009, Ashley had accumulated $30,803 in credit card and bank debts, including a $15,950 personal loan from TD Canada Trust. She declared bankruptcy in January with $1,000 in reported assets.

“I was told she had cancer,” said Mahmood Chagani, Ashley’s bankruptcy trustee. Chagani said Ashley did not mention Change for a Cure or any money she had received in the previous months.

***

Ashley was born in Burlington on April 29, 1987.

Her parents admit their marriage quickly turned dysfunctional, and after their second child was born — less than two years after Ashley — they separated.

A bitter custody dispute followed. Police were often called to enforce visitations.

Ashley ended up growing up with her mother and had little contact with her father.

Ashley’s mother, Cindy Edwards, said Ashley was a sweet child, but desperate for attention.

“She always wanted to be the princess.”

Edwards said Ashley became greedier in adolescence.

“She just wanted more and more, no matter what I gave her.”

After disappearing for three days after her Grade 8 graduation, Ashley came home said she didn’t want to live under her mother’s rules anymore.

She briefly lived with her maternal grandparents in Paris, Ont., before moving in with her dad and stepmother, where she stayed until she was 16. When she didn’t like her father’s rules, she moved in with a friend’s family for three months and then back with her grandparents for a year.

“You couldn’t trust anything she was saying,” said Mary Edwards, Ashley’s grandmother.

Ashley then lived with a boyfriend’s family before moving back in with her father and stepmother.

“She made this house a living hell,” said France, Ashley’s stepmother, citing constant lying, stealing from her siblings and flagrant disobedience.

Ashley’s parents and stepmother say although she saw a number of therapists and psychiatrists, Ashley has never been formally diagnosed with any mental illness.

“She has lived in a fantasy world as long as we’ve known her, where she’s a princess and everyone adores her,” said her stepmother.

***

Toward the end of 2009, friends say, Ashley started becoming distant. She stopped returning phone calls and would cancel plans at the last minute.

In March, she posted on Change for a Cure’s Facebook page that her cancer had come back — she had told people, at various times, that she was in remission — and that this would be her last post.

Events were still being held in her name at this time, but she would rarely attend.

Ashley’s father had been following the Facebook page, saw the post, looked at the pictures of his hairless daughter, and wondered if perhaps she was telling the truth. He said he called Ashley and she admitted she had faked having cancer.

“I said flat out: ‘You don’t have cancer, do you?’ There was silence on the phone and she very quietly responded: ‘No.’ ”

Kirilow said she admitted shaving her head and plucking her eyebrows, and said she wanted to come clean and turn her life around — but she needed time. She asked to move back home for a few days.

At this point, Kirilow said although he knew Ashley had faked having cancer, he thought the charity itself was legitimate.

“We didn’t think that she had full control of the money.”

When she got home she was evasive and jittery. But Kirilow said he believes she was faking that, too.

“She started to use this anxiety issue and really started playing that up.”

He said he admitted her to the local hospital’s psychiatric ward on April 27 because of the anxiety she was exhibiting. She stayed there for about three weeks.

“They saw no reason why she should be staying,” Kirilow said. “At that point I pretty much felt I’d figured out what she was up to.”

On the Saturday of the Victoria Day long weekend, Kirilow said, Ashley abruptly left a family barbecue to go camping with a guy she met while she was in hospital. She was gone for three days.

When she came back, he confronted her:

“ ‘You have to do this walk to deliver the money. But you don’t have it, do you? You spent it. Now you need a place to hide, so you came here. ’ ”

Kirilow told Ashley she had 30 days to come clean or he would tell everyone the truth.

She left May 28, and Kirilow hasn’t heard from his daughter since.

Halton Police confirmed that a uniformed officer received a complaint on June 28 from three volunteers about an alleged fraud run by Ashley, but the complaint has not yet been forwarded to the fraud unit.

***

Ashley’s parents say they hope she is caught.

“This is so embarrassing to all of us,” said Ashley’s mother.

“The only way she’s going to straighten out the rest of her life is if she gets caught,” her father said. “I just hope she does the right thing.”

Ashley Kirilow, a 23-year-old from Toronto, pretended to have cancer She shaved her head, waxed her eyebrows, and plucked her eyelashes. But why did she do it? She scammed more than $20,000 for her charity, “Change” for a Cure, which was really just a Facebook page.

She started this elaborate scam after having a benign tumor removed from her breast in 2008. She tricked hundreds of people into giving her money and even accepted a trip to Disney World from a cancer charity.

After Ashley’s father discovered her scam, he told her to confess or he would reveal her secret. She did not confess, but was found out by the public soon after. Later, she admitted that she only scammed $5,000. Now, she is nowhere to be found.

26-year-old Sterger, a former columnist for Sports Illustrated‘s web site who is no stranger to revealing photo shoots, says the legendary quarterback flirted with her when they were both employed by the New York Jets.

According to the article, Sterger claims that Favre, who has reportedly been texting teammates, ultimately texted her something quite different: numerous photos.

While the report lacks any hard evidence (so far), it would hardly be the first time Deadspin posted photographs of naked athletes.  Do you believe Sterger?

Pfc Bradley Manning 
30 July 2010   11:30 ET

A soldier accused of leaking video of a deadly helicopter attack in Iraq has been transferred to a base in the US.

US Army Pfc Bradley Manning is to stand trial on charges he gave video of the attack, which killed a Reuters photographer, to website Wikileaks.

The Pentagon is also investigating whether he gave the site 90,000 documents on the war in Afghanistan.

On Friday a White House aide begged whoever possessed the Afghan files not to release any more.

“It’s important that no more damage be done to our national security,” Robert Gibbs said on NBC’s Today show.

The US Army said on Friday Pfc Manning, 22, had been moved from Kuwait to Quantico Marine Base in Virginia, where he will be held pending trial.

The Pentagon said this week investigators were extending the helicopter attack video investigation to find out whether Pfc Manning was involved in leak of the Afghanistan documents, with a spokesman describing him as a “person of interest”.

‘Afghan blood’But a Pentagon spokesman has said the investigation is “broader” than Pfc Manning.

The US government maintains the massive dump of documents onto the website put lives at risk.

“We can do nothing but implore the person that has those classified top secret documents not to post any more,” Mr Gibbs said on Friday.

And, on Thursday, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen said: “The truth is [Wikileaks] might already have on their hands the blood of some young soldier or that of an Afghan family.”

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has dismissed the accusation, saying the US government has presented no evidence innocent people or informants have been harmed by the leaks.

On Friday, he pledged to continue document releases.

“We will not be suppressed,” he said. “We will continue to expose abuses by this administration and others.”

The documents, which Wikileaks have called the Afghan War Diary, were first described in news reports late on Sunday.

Among other revelations, they describe in new detail civilian deaths, claim members of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency have backed the Taliban in Afghanistan, and state the Taliban has used surface-to-air missiles to down coalition aircraft.

—————————————————————————————-

Once again, Wikileaks has revealed controversial information regarding US and Coalition troops’ involvement in an ongoing war. In May, 22-year old Private First Class Bradley E. Manning of Potomac, Maryland, was arrested for sending details to the online leak source. Manning had been based in Forward Operating Base Hammer in Iraq, and had boasted of leaking a video of a helicopter gunship attack in Baghdad, where civilians appear to have been killed. That video, released in April by Wikileaks, was only a section of the thousands of documents he had allegedly passed on. His data had been collected between November 19, 2009 and May 2010. A website has been set up to support Manning against the charges leveled at him.

Now, a massive dump of information has appeared on the Wikileaks website, relating to the War in Afghanistan, and most of it is exceedingly damaging to the image of the war that has recently been presented by the administration. A total of 92,000 documents have been placed online. Once loaded and decompressed, these documents fill up 3.5 Gb of disk space.
 
The whistle-blower site agreed to send previews of these documents to the New York Times, the German magazine  Der Spiegel and the Guardian (all news sources with a left-wing bias) to allow them to prepare for simultaneous publication.
 
The “Afghan War Logs” claim to be about information from 2004 to 2010, but it seems that the relevant data ends at around 2009, and as such, the data cannot be used as a measure of what is currently going on.
 
The person who passed on the original material apparently wanted certain material to be held back, for fear of risking military lives. That individual seems to be Bradley E. Manning. But what is already in the public domain as of today, via the Guardian, Der Spiegel and New York Times, involves the following.
 
·         There is a so-called “black unit” run by American military forces which is charged with hunting down Taliban leaders and killing them without trial. Under Obama, these operations have become more frequent, and civilians are said to have been killed in such operations. The identities of these Taliban targets were kept on a capture-list of around 70 members, which was used by a secret commando unit named Task Force 373.
 
·         Certain rumors that have been reported for the past few years (often based upon leaks from key US intelligence officials) have been confirmed: that Pakistan’s military intelligence unit, the ISI, has been closely involved with supporting Afghanistan and the insurgents, giving advice to the Taliban and allowing free association of ISI and Taliban. The ISI has even been involved with plotting assassinations of members of the Afghan government. This is while Pakistan annually receives $1 billion in American funding.
 
·         Deadly unmanned drone aircraft, operated from a base in Nevada, are being used more frequently in airstrikes.
 
·         The Taliban has access to heat-seeking missiles. During the Russian war in Afghanistan, this was suspected. The Afghans have not had much success with these heat-seeking missiles, but the American forces have apparently tried to suppress this information.
 
·         Funds sent to Afghanistan for humanitarian aid have gone missing – almost certainly going to the insurgents. An orphanage set up in Gardez was shown to have had no orphans a year after its opening.
 
·         Coalition partners have allegedly been involved in revenge attacks. On August 16, 2007, following a roadside IED attack, a Polish contingent attacked a village, and fired mortars – one of which detonated on the roof a home where a wedding party was going on with members of the Jalal Zaid tribe. One man, four women and a baby were killed at the scene, and three women were injured. One of these was nine months pregnant. The Polish soldiers were apparently sent home soon after the incident.
 
·         The British army has been involved in at least 21 cases of Afghan civilians being shot or killed. These incidents have not been mentioned previously by the British military, politicians or press.
 
Until very recently Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, had denied that there was a large cache of material, while his website was obviously liaising with the three newspapers for them to get their “scoop”.
 
In an interview on Britain’s Channel 4 news, Australian-born Assange stated that
 
“we have a stated commitment to a particular kind of process and objective, and that commitment is to get censored material out and never to take it down. That commitment has driven our technical and legal process and has resulted in sources understanding that we are the most trusted organization to give material to and we always fight attempted censorship and have always won…
 
… But we are creating a space behind us for other media and publishing organizations to operate in a safer way and that, I think, will have long term consequences.”
 
On a few occasions, we have reported here on FSM the ongoing involvement of Hamid Gul – who was head of the ISI between 1987 and 1989 – in providing assistance to the Taliban and also insurgents. Our mentions can be found here, here and here. The documents, according to the New York Times, which has time to study their documents, state that:
 
General Gul is mentioned so many times in the reports, if they are to be believed, that it seems unlikely that Pakistan’s current military and intelligence officials could not know of at least some of his wide-ranging activities.
 
For example, one intelligence report describes him meeting with a group of militants in Wana, the capital of South Waziristan, in January 2009. There, he met with three senior Afghan insurgent commanders and three “older” Arab men, presumably representatives of Al Qaeda, who the report suggests were important “because they had a large security contingent with them.”
 
Gul was said in several of the leaked reports to have visited madrassas in Peshawar (capital city of Pakistan’s North-West Frontier Province, near the borderlands with Afghanistan) to have looked for recruits to fight in the Afghan Taliban vs Coalition troops conflict. Gul denied the reports, stating: “I have had no hand in it. American intelligence is pulling cotton wool over your eyes.”
 
Though the leaked data does not cover events after December 2009, they may shed some light on a strange incident that took place in Pakistan in spring of this year. When former ISI senior operative, Khalid Khawaja, was kidnapped in March this year in North Waziristan, he was shown in a “confession” video stating that he had been sent to talk to insurgents by Hamid Gul. Also kidnapped with Khawaja was another former senior ISI figure – Colonel Imam Sultan Tarar. The two men stated on a video that they had been following advice given by former Army Chief General Aslam Baig and former DG ISI Lieutenant General (retd) Hamid Gul. Khawaja had added that a currently-serving ISI official, Colonel Sajjad, had urged the men to visit Taliban leaders. Khawaja was subsequently murdered, and the fate of Colonel Imam and British documentary maker Asad Qureshi (who was accompanying the two former ISI officials) is unknown.
