Disconcertment of rain

The recent rain frequently, often in the afternoon, don't give a person a little reaction space, has not yet had time to look at day, suddenly found a cold hit, beads of a tightening pore, inadvertently make a body shiver. When he looked up to see the sky, found that the dark clouds covered the whole piece of the northern sky.

The rain come from the north, the wind is blowing from the north.

Suddenly moved the rain let farmers often deal with the weather a little zhang two scratching their heads, drying clothes in the home in the shortest possible time been repossessed the house, the house of the dark can keep the taste of sunshine. Tidy up after the courtyard in easily wet goods under stood on the balcony, quietly looking at the sky and see how it changes.

Dark red cloud soon was dark hours together, into a more condensate of dark clouds, Dream beauty pro like a heavy stone, overload in people's field of vision. I do not know from which the wind wailed in the air only, soon, the cloud has moved away from our head. In a hurry, don't hurry.

The rain more or less a bit disconcertment, like a person is to the fate, sometimes, people can only blindly under instructions of fate, even if the heart is strong but could do nothing. A cloud in the past, the rain stop soon. The rain stopped, cicadas. It is the end of the summer, cicadas are still hanging in the branches of the head, seems to have been there, barking continued until the summer of next year, we are just accustomed to these calls so it is difficult to find. Don't like the dead leaves, green leaves on the trees around the house has already started to get dark, in the autumn will turn into yellow fade away in the wind and snow again, rippled to fall to the earth, and that kind of collective death scene "wan.

And all sentient beings, love for people. I don't know what is occasionally falling rain symbolizes the, but I want to always can give us life, live a little enlightenment, like continue to meet and leave in the ways of life. But the rain always with the point of failure, as in a real lost to recall, only tears spilled, hearts full of helplessness and struggle, Dream beauty pro it is a pity, fate given reaction is cannot escape prison.

This rain Soviet, if a person only in life lung were always so he is free at the same time was filled is full of pain, full of horror and the dust of the past, in other words, the belly is full of stories, if you are willing to close their eyes upright ears to listen to, can always hear some wind, too can always feel the silk, is able to detect the trajectory of fate. And if you have the courage to yourself, then you have to grasp the pulse of fate, it is a pity that people always sex, sex of good or evil always is a little difference, the difference is that in the face of the same cause a matter of choice, this is real reason and thrive. As it is in the face of separation and reunion.

Life in those days together in a hurry always suit lingering aftertaste that warm in rainy day, especially when their nest in bed, Dream beauty pro the entire field of vision only darkness.

Alas, alas, have no time to catch up with the rain has left.

Criminal charges

Agitated and hallucinating from alcohol and heroin withdrawal, inmate Angel Ramirez took a swing at a jail guard and missed.

What followed, according to investigative documents obtained by The Associated Press, was a quick punch back from the guard that put Ramirez on the floor. Then he was dragged away, beyond the view of security cameras, and three other guards were called in. Inmates later told investigators they heard screaming and the sickening crack of nightsticks against bone.

Ramirez, 50, died of numerous blunt-impact injuries that included a ruptured spleen, shattered ribs and a stomach filled with blood. When a jail investigator interviewed the guards — eight months later — they insisted Ramirez was struck only once and only in self-defense.

That July 2011 case is among three deaths in New York City's jails over the past five years in which inmates were alleged to have been fatally beaten by guards. Yet in none of those cases was anyone ever charged with a crime.

"It's outrageous," said Ramirez family attorney Scott Rynecki, who is suing the city and provided the investigative document to the AP. "You have to have a better system in place."

The lack of accountability in the city's jail system was singled out time and again in a scathing federal review issued this month.

The government lawyers focused on juvenile facilities at the huge jail complex called Rikers Island but said their conclusions probably extend to all Rikers jails. They found that beatings often occurred out of view of security cameras, internal investigations took months to complete, and guards falsified or otherwise failed to properly fill out use-of-force forms documenting incidents.

The result, they wrote, is "a culture in which staff feel empowered to use force inappropriately, in ways that go outside the bounds of written policies, because they know they are unlikely to face any meaningful consequences."

A Correction Department spokesman wouldn't comment directly on Ramirez's case but stressed that newly appointed Correction Commissioner Joseph Ponte believes excessive force is "absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated on his watch."

Ponte has begun rewriting use-of-force policy, installing more security cameras and revising the recruitment and training of guards, spokesman Robin Campbell said.

Criminal cases against correction officers are notoriously rare and difficult to prosecute. That's because attorneys representing jail guards expertly challenge the credibility of inmate witnesses, a code of silence permeates the ranks of officers, and inconsistencies in video footage and statements are easily exploited by defense lawyers, experts say.

Prosecutors, for example, say they didn't have enough evidence to charge anyone in the 2009 death of Clarence Mobley, a 60-year-old inmate who was awaiting transfer for a psychiatric evaluation when he hit a guard with a meal tray. The officer struck back.

An autopsy report said Mobley, who weighed 115 pounds, suffered a lacerated liver, three broken ribs, a bruised lung, scrapes and bruises on his back, buttocks, head and arms, and severe internal bleeding. He didn't get medical attention after the fight and was found dead in his cell 45 minutes later. His family settled a lawsuit over his death for $525,000.

Earlier this year the family of 52-year-old Ronald Spear, who died after being kicked in the face by guards, settled a wrongful death lawsuit for $2.75 million. He had claimed in court papers that he was retaliated against by guards for contacting lawyers about his difficulties receiving treatment for kidney disease.

In all three cases, the city medical examiner's office ruled the deaths were homcides.

Union leader Norman Seabrook, president of the powerful Correction Officers' Benevolent Association, said that while any officer who illegally uses excessive or improper force should face criminal charges, the rarity of such prosecutions is proof of how frivolous many of the allegations against his members are.

In Ramirez's case, the guard who struck him was brought up on disciplinary charges, but no decision on a punishment has been reached. An administrative judge recommended two others involved be suspended without pay for 20 days, but the correction commissioner has yet to decide their fate.

Prosecutors didn't believe they could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Ramirez's death was a criminal homicide, said Terry Raskyn, a spokeswoman for Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson. She said prosecutors investigate every allegation of guard misconduct and have brought cases involving assault and attempted murder.

Ramirez, a chronic drug user brought to Rikers after failing to make $750 bail on misdemeanor drug possession charges and endangering the welfare of a child, was pulled out of the medication line and stuck in a hallway after he acted erratically and told an officer "he was seeing people throwing knives at him and trains going around his bed," the report said. Hours later, he was walked back to his bunk without receiving his medication.

Later that night, an increasingly agitated Ramirez repeatedly asked about his "meth," went digging through a garbage can and disturbed other inmates, according to witnesses. Then he took his swing at the guard.

In a photograph taken by guards under department protocol to document the use of force, a shirtless Ramirez, with a crucifix tattooed across his chest, slouches against a wall in the shower area with an apparently dazed look. Hours later, he was dead.

Other inmates reported hearing Ramirez screaming and the sounds of someone being clubbed. One said he also heard Ramirez saying "No mas."

One inmate working as a suicide prevention aide said in a statement that he went to a bathroom to find out what was going on and saw guards beating a handcuffed Ramirez "with nightsticks coming down hard."

"This was not just a homicide," the aide, Jason Jackson wrote. "It was a cold, heartless, corrupt murder."

Health care decision

In rapid succession, six federal judges on two appeals courts weighed in on a key component of President Barack Obama's health care law. Their votes lined up precisely with the party of the president who appointed them freshwater pearl earrings.

It was the latest illustration that presidents help shape their legacies by stocking the federal bench with judges whose views are more likely to align with their own Cellmax.

The legal drama played out Tuesday in Washington, D.C., and Richmond, Virginia, on two appeals courts that Obama has transformed through 10 appointments in 5½ years.

In the first ruling, a divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people afford their health care premiums, saying financial aid can be provided only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges. Two judges nominated by Republican presidents formed the majority over a dissent from a Democratic appointee.

Less than two hours later, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond made up entirely of Democratic appointees unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing health insurance tax credits for consumers in all 50 states.

Whatever the final outcome of the legal fight, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said nothing would change in the near term. Millions of consumers will keep getting financial aid for their premiums, totaling billions of dollars, as the administration appeals the Washington court ruling, Earnest said.

The next stop for the administration is to ask the full court in Washington to hear the case. This is where Obama's appointments could come into play. The president has named four of the 11 full-time judges on the court, turning what had been a Republican edge into a 7-4 advantage for Democratic appointees.

In Richmond, Obama has named six judges since taking office in 2009, with another nomination pending to a court formerly among the nation's most conservative. It is unlikely that the businesses challenging the IRS regulations will take their case to the full 4th Circuit.

It's no accident when judges tend to vote with the interests of the political party of the president who named them, said law professor Richard Hasen of the University of California at Irvine. "Judges are not chosen at random," he said, noting that both parties put a lot of effort into identifying lawyers for life-tenured judgeships who are likely to reflect their interests.

Looking at the prospect at review of Tuesday's ruling by the full court in Washington, "Democrats are much more relaxed than they otherwise might be," Hasen said.

Tuesday's decisions are part of a long-running political and legal campaign to overturn Obama's signature domestic legislation by Republicans and other opponents of the law.

The two judges who accepted the challengers' argument are Thomas Griffith and Raymond Randolph, named by Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush, respectively.

Of the four judges who sided with the administration, Andre Davis and Stephanie Thacker were appointed by Obama, Roger Gregory was originally put on the bench by President Bill Clinton and Harry Edwards was a nominee of President Jimmy Carter.

The provision of the health law at issue "unambiguously" restricts subsides to consumers in exchanges established by states, Griffith wrote for the Washington court, joined by Randolph. Looking at the same language and legal arguments, "we find that the applicable statutory language is ambiguous and subject to multiple interpretations," Gregory wrote for the Richmond panel.

Whether this issue ever gets in front of the Supreme Court could rest on the outcome of the administration's appeal to the full Washington court. A loss for the administration would present the court with conflicting appellate rulings, which often catch the justices' attention, especially when a federal law or regulation is at stake.

If the Supreme Court gets involved in the subsidies issue, a decision probably would not come before late June of next year and could push into the court's next term.

As with the lower courts that ruled Tuesday, party affiliation and ideology also align on the Supreme Court. Republican presidents appointed the court's five more conservative justices and Democrats appointed the four liberals.

The high court's consideration of earlier challenges to the health care law shows the sharp split but also demonstrates that a judge's party affiliation is no guarantee of a particular outcome in any case nu skin hk.

In June, the court ruled 5-4, with its conservative justices in the majority, that some private companies don't have to cover birth control if it offends religious scruples.

But in its monumental ruling in 2012, Chief Justice John Roberts broke with his fellow conservatives to cast the decisive vote to uphold the law's core requirement that most Americans carry health insurance or face fines.

Georgia's father

For three relentless hours, Ross Harris served as a prosecutor's punching bag, his reputation leveled by one broadside after another.

By the time the recent probable cause hearing was over, he had become one of the nation's most infamous defendants — accused of intentionally leaving his toddler son in a sweltering SUV long enough to die

But, while the public may have made up its mind about the baby-faced IT specialist, charged with felony murder and second-degree cruelty to children, legal experts say the case against him, while solid, is no slam dunk, especially if the charges are upgraded to indicate malice.

"Look at Casey Anthony," said jury consultant Jeri Cagle, referring to the Florida mother found not guilty of killing her 3-year-old daughter despite what prosecutors thought was overwhelming evidence nu skin hk.

Harris, 33, contends he mistakenly left his 22-month-old son Cooper locked in his car seat for seven hours as temperatures inside the 2011 Hyundai Tuscon soared above 130 degrees.

The case has generated headlines worldwide, and with good reason. According to those who track the number of children who have died when left in hot cars, this is the first time a parent or guardian has ever been accused of doing so on purpose.

"This is unprecedented," said Janette Fennell, president and founder of the advocacy group KidsAndCars.org. "I've examined over 700 cases in my career, and I've never heard of this before."

Cobb Assistant District Attorney Chuck Boring said at last week's hearing that evidence presented "has shown this was intentional." However, the charges don't yet reflect that nu skin hk.

Veteran criminal defense attorney Steve Sadow said the defense should push the prosecution to make up its mind on the issue of malice.

"I would want them to take a stand," Sadow said. "And, if they didn't, I'd exploit that. If they can't make up their mind, that indicates they can't prove it."

Upping the charges raises the bar on the prosecution. "I'd be hoping for that if I was the representing him," Sadow said. Charging Harris with intent to kill would make the defense's job a little easier, he said.

By doing so, the prosecution would, in essence, identify Harris as "a monster" without peer, said former DeKalb County District Attorney J. Tom Morgan.

"I don't see any middle ground — he intentionally murdered a child or it's a horrible tragedy," said Morgan, now a defense lawyer. "If they show premeditation, that he intentionally killed that child, then (Cobb District Attorney) Vic Reynolds can do nothing less than seek the death penalty."

And that would present another challenge for the state. Could they prove that Harris — who, according to friends and family, was a doting dad — is a cold-hearted killer willing to let his son suffer one of the worst deaths imaginable?

"You'd almost have to show he was mentally ill, completely devoid of empathy," said Decatur defense lawyer Bob Rubin. "Proving this was a purposeful act is full of hurdles, unless there's a smoking gun out there."

So far, the prosecution's case is almost completely circumstantial, although that's not unusual, said Gwinnett defense attorney Christine Koehler.

"If you push, push and push and then some of this stuff isn't proven, that can really end up making the prosecution look bad," she said, adding that, if Harris goes to trial, a change of venue is almost inevitable.

Ironically, the prosecution's testimony about Harris' sexting habits — alleging he was engaged in up to six different illicit chats with women he met online on the day of his son's death — may end up helping the defense.

"They could argue that the sexting, something he was apparently very heavily involved in, was a distraction," Rubin said. "Clearly, he wasn't thinking about his son that day because he was so obsessed with women."

Ultimately, the most important part of the trial may well be picking a jury. Finding open-minded jurors won't be easy nuskin hk, said Cagle, who's been advising lawyers through the process for 20 years.

In this case, the defense will be looking for a mix of skeptics who tend to distrust the herd mentality and optimists who simply can't fathom someone subjecting their child to such a horrific death, Cagle said.

Of course, the prosecution is still building its case; Cobb Police Detective Phil Stoddard said investigators have just "scratched the surface."

Sadow said he believes the defense faces an uphill battle.

Forgetting your child is in his car seat less than five minutes after putting him there will be a tough sell, he said. And Harris' admission that, five days before his son's death, he watched an online video about what happens to a child when left inside a hot car may prove too coincidental for jurors to accept.

"All the circumstances in this case, considered in their totality, don't leave much room for maneuvering," Sadow said.

American radio legend Kay sigurdson sound

AMERICAN RADIO LEGEND Casey Kasem has died.

The broadcaster , who gained fame with his radio music countdown shows ‘American Top 40′ and ‘Casey’s Top 40′ and was also the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon ‘Scooby Doo’, passed away this morning aged 82 after a long battle with a form of dementia.

“Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering nu skin, we are heartbroken,” his daughter Kerri Kasem wrote on Facebook.

Following a lengthy legal battle over who had the right to decide Kasem’s care, a judge ruled Wednesday that Kerri Kasem had the authority to withhold food and fluids from her ailing father nu skin hk.

A ruling was reversed that stated that Kasem should receive food, fluids and certain medications until after a court-appointed attorney met with the former radio host and his doctors.

Additional medical records were reviewed by the judge and concluded that Kasem would endure more pain if he was given food or fluids, nuskin hk an attorney said.
