81-year-old
charged with
looting grove
Deputies in Florida say an 81year-old man picked thousands of
tangerines — 11 truckloads worth
— and then sold the stolen bounty at
a nearby market.
Herman Southall was charged
Wednesday with 11 counts of transporting citrus without a certificate,
grand theft of more than 2,000 pieces
of citrus and trespassing. He is being held at the Polk County Jail on
an $8,500 bond.
Southall and another man were
found by deputies Wednesday picking fruit in a Dundee grove after a
Sheriff’s Office helicopter pilot saw
them. It’s unclear if he has retained
an attorney.
Deputies say the two had picked
more than four rows of Sunburst
tangerines. The report said they were
preparing to load the fruit into
Southall’s truck.
Super rich
Clintons change
tune on taxes
Bill and Hillary are reportedly
using tax advantaged strategies used
by multimillionaires.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are finding their way around an estate tax
they have long supported, a cause
they said would prevent the U.S.
from being overrun by inherited
wealth.
The Clintons are employing a series of financial planning strategies
that will help reduce the tax burden
on future recipients, which can be as
high as 40%.
The steps are common among
multimillionaires and include creating a residence trust, a type of tax
advantaged set-up that allows any
appreciation in real estate value to
build outside of the taxable estate.
During Hillary Clinton’s 2008
campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, she supported a
higher estate tax by lowering the
personal exemption to $3.5 million
versus the current $5.34 million, and
setting the top tax rate at 45%.
The Clinton’s finances have come
under the microscope as Hillary
Clinton promotes her new book,
“Hard Choices.” She said in an interview on ABC television that they
were “dead broke” by the end of Bill
Clinton’s presidency. Critics responded that she didn’t understand
the financial hardships of everyday
Americans.
Driver dies after
Pompano crash
A 79-year-old driver died the day
after a serious two-car crash in Pompano Beach. The other driver and
her young passenger were not seriously injured. Broward Sheriff’s
Office Traffic Homicide detectives
are investigating the crash.
At 6:51 p.m. on Nov. 6, Marilyn
Kreider, 651 Village Dr., Pompano
Beach, was driving her 2014 Silver
Hyundai Sonata eastbound in left
turn lane of S.W. 6 Street. She attempted to make a left turn on a
changing traffic signal that was sequencing from green to solid red.
Kreider failed to yield to Leidy
Vargas’ 2003 Silver Mercedes Benz
S500 which was heading westbound
on S.W. 6 Street in the thru lane
when the cars collided. Four-yearold Reyna Troutman was riding in
Vargas’ car at the time of the crash.
Marilyn Kreider was transported
to Broward Health North where she
underwent surgery but passed away
as a result of her injuries on Nov. 7.
Leidy Vargas and Reyna Troutman
were transported to Imperial Pointe
Hospital where they were subsequently treated and released.
The traffic homicide investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Traffic Homicide detectives Miller or

Tundidor found guilty in death of Joseph Morrissey
Blackwood
Gatlin
Johnekins
Authorities arrested three men accused of robbing, raping and terrorizing women in Miramar.
Frankie Lee Gatlin and Kinshon
Johnekins, who are 19-years old, and
Britton Michael Blackwood, 20, are
facing numerous charges including
sexual battery, armed robbery and false
imprisonment.
Police said the three men know
each other and were involved in separate incidents in September and October.
According to police, on September
24th, two women who came down to
Miami from the Port Charlotte area
and met up with Blackwood and Gatlin
at a Miramar residence after meeting
through social media.
“Both women were held at gunpoint,” said Tania Rues with the
Miramar Police Department. “Both
women were raped by both of these
individuals. Their personal belongings
were also stolen.”
Miramar Police said on October
26th, a woman in her 20s left Club 7
off Miramar Parkway and State Road
7 and got in her vehicle, parked at a
nearby KFC.
“As this victim was punching her
home address into her GPS, two men
approached her with weapons,” added
Rues. “These two men raped this girl
in her vehicle. They threatened her.
They told her if she reported the crime,
they would kill her.”
According to investigators, surveillance video and DNA evidence identified Blackwood and Johnekins as the
attackers.
A third incident is now under investigation.
Miramar police said at least one of
these three men is believed to have
been involved in another rape early
Friday morning.
“We do have a third incident where
two other women were terrorized and
one of the two were raped,” said Rues.
Officers believe there are more victims out there and are asking them or
anyone with information to call
Miramar Police at 954-602-4000.
Supreme Court delivers blow
to powerful public unions
The nation’s top court recognized a category of employees that cannot be forced to contribute union fees.
Public unions dodged what could have been a lethal
bullet on Monday in what’s been touted as the most important labor case the Supreme Court has considered in decades.
The Justices decided in a 5-4 ruling on Monday to not
overturn a 37-year precedent that allows public unions to
collect dues from non-members. But the nation’s top court
did recognize a category of “partial public employees” that
cannot be forced to contribute union fees, which will limit
unions’ ability to represent a fast-growing pool of potential
members: home care aides.
The decision had the potential to be a death knell for
unions, which are already struggling to maintain membership rolls. Union membership in the U.S. stands at 11.3%,
down from 20.1% in 1983, according to the Bureau of
Labor Statistics. The one relatively healthy sector for
unions—the public sphere, where 35.3% of the workforce
is unionized—was put at serious risk in the case decided
Monday.
The case grew out of a law passed in Illinois in 2003 that
recognized some home care providers as public employees
and selected a Midwest branch of the SEIU to exclusively
represent these workers.
The law held that no home care workers would be
compelled to join the SEIU but that all workers would be
required to contribute “fair share” dues to the union since
the law directed the SEIU to collectively bargain on behalf
of all the workers covered by the law regardless of whether
the workers wanted the representation.
The Illinois law relied a 1977 decision by the Supreme
Court in Abood v. Detroit Board of Education that said that
states could require employees to pay partial union dues to
cover the cost of unions bargaining on their behalf.
The lead plaintiff in the case, Pamela Harris, worked as
a home care aid and was represented by the conservative
National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which
aimed to upset the Illinois law and the Abood decision with
a class action suit. Harris claimed that Illinois was infringing on her first amendment rights since the money that the
SEIU automatically subtracted from her paycheck constituted compelled speech in support of the union.
Unions, meanwhile, argued that the required dues prevents freeloaders—those who enjoy the benefits of union
representation without having to pay for it.
“This case represents a very, very aggressive attempt by
the National Right to Work Foundation to try to make
America a right-to-work country in which public unions
can never compel dues from people,” Lee Adler of Cornell’s
Industrial and Labor Relations School told Fortune. And
history has shown that many workers choose to avoid
paying union dues if they are given the option, meaning
that a decision overturning Abood could have crippled
public unions.
But those fears weren’t wholly realized on Monday. In
writing for the majority and siding with the home care
aides, Justice Samuel Alito, a conservative, kept Abood in
place while ruling that personal home-care employees
couldn’t be forced to pay union dues because they are not
technically full-time state employees. “Abood involved
full-fledged public employees, but in this case, the status
of personal assistants is much different,” Justice Alito said
in his opinion.
While the decision didn’t mark as big a blow to unions
as it could have, it has hit labor where it hurts. Personal
care aides help elderly or disabled clients with everyday
tasks and are paid through Medicaid. It’s a low paid
profession—about $20,000 annually—that’s expected to
grow by 580,000 workers by 2022 as the nation’s population ages, according to the BLS. The field is ripe for
unionization and labor has tried—and succeeded—to organize workers in several states.
“Other states have decided like Illinois to share the
control over the workers, so this decision has the potential
to impact those other programs,” says Cathy Ruckelshaus,
general counsel for the National Employment Law Project.
A decision against the unionization of these workers will
trickle through the elderly and disabled care system, which
already has a shortage for workers since working conditions are so poor. “It’s a blow not just to the individual
workers,” she said, “but also to the care and service
provided to the recipients.”
Randy Tundidor Sr. was sentenced
to death for the murder of Nova Southeastern University professor Joseph
Morrissey.
Tundidor, 47, was found guilty back
in April 2012.
Tundidor’s son, Randy H. Tundidor,
plead guilty to taking part in the murder and testified against his father.
Tundidor Jr. was sentenced to 40 years
in prison in December 2012.
In April 2010, the Tundidors broke
into the home of Morrissey, their landlord, and forced he and his wife to
drive to a nearby ATM. Upon returning to the house, the men tied the
couple up at gunpoint while their 5year-old son was sleeping nearby.
After killing Morrissey, the
Tundidors set the house on fire.
During the trial, Morrissey’s wife
said the Tundidors were angry that
they were about to be evicted from the
home they rented from the professor.
Tundidor’s son testified that he
thought they were only going to rob
the couple, but persuaded his father to
only kill Morrissey and leave his wife
Tundidor
and son alone.
The jury that found Tundidor Sr.
guilty recommended that he be sentenced to death.
Canadian “Sex Tourist” jailed
A Canadian man accused of making a trip to South Florida to have sex
with an underage teenage boy is being
held without bail at the Broward
County jail.
Rene Roberge, 47, made his first
court appearance Monday in Fort Lauderdale.
On October 9th, Roberge sent an
email to an undercover Florida Dept.
of Law Enforcement agent who was
posing as the father with a 14-year old
son through a social networking site .
In the email, Roberge allegedly said
he would be willing to travel to Florida
to meet with the agent and his son for
a sexual encounter.
Roberge made hotel reservations
in Pompano Beach and arrived from
Montreal on Sunday, November 9th,
according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
In his luggage, law enforcement
officers
found the lubricant,
condoms, and
gifts.

prison sentence and potentially life

Marijuana fails in Florida this year
Though Amendment 2 once appeared to enjoy huge support and did
win a majority of votes Tuesday, it
failed to clear 60 percent as required
for constitutional amendments.
“We are very happy that our quality
of life here in Florida is going to be
preserved,” said Calvina Fay, executive director of St. Petersburg’s Drug
Free America Foundation. “We are
not going to be seeing pot shops everywhere. We are not going to see
opportunities for marijuana to be promoted for our children. We are happy
the voters in our state took time to
actually read the amendment and vote
smart.”
Medical marijuana supporters
vowed next to take the fight to legalize
medical marijuana to the Florida Legislature.
“They can ignore polls, they can
ignore activists and they can ignore
bills filed by minority legislators but
they cannot ignore the majority vote
by Floridians,” said Ben Pollara, director of the advocacy group United
for Care. “And if they do, we will see
them again in 2016.”
But Amendment 1, which sets up a
20-year funding stream for conserva-
tion projects, breezed to victory at the
polls.
Under that measure, one-third of
the documentary stamp taxes on property transactions will go to a trust fund
expected to generate nearly $700 million a year for conservation and recreational lands. It could help restore the
Everglades, buy new holdings or preserve Florida’s springs.
Like medical marijuana, the land
conservation measure was placed on
the ballot by petition. A third proposed amendment, placed on the ballot by the Legislature and dealing with
replacing Supreme Court justices, was
soundly defeated.
Though Amendment 2 appeared
popular early on, as the campaign continued the fact that it would be enshrined in the state Constitution was
exactly what worried many opponents.
The ballot language listed several
specific qualifying diseases, like cancer and multiple sclerosis, but also
would have allowed doctors to recommend marijuana use for patients who
had other “debilitating” conditions.
Critics said such broad language
that could foster “pot mills” and abuse
by users wanting to get high and entre-
preneurs seeking profits.
The amendment, just two pages
long, would have relied on the Florida
Department of Health to fill in thousands of details and rules. If any of
those rules had conflicted with Amendment 2’s ballot language, critics
warned, courts might be forced to
throw out important safeguards.
Orlando attorney John Morgan
spent $4 million to get Amendment 2
on the 2014 ballot, mostly to pay people
to gather last-minute petition signatures. He has said that if the measure
polls in the high 50s, he would try
again in 2016.
St. Petersburg was the epicenter for
watching Amendment 2’s fate on Tuesday night as supporters surrounded by
TV cameras gathered at Fresco’s, a
popular waterfront restaurant. A short
walk away, strategists with United for
Care, the group behind the amendment, were holed up in the Vinoy Renaissance Resort watching returns. By
9 p.m. the mood was somber.
Fay, also based in St. Petersburg,
said she “cannot speculate on what
might be proposed” by medical marijuana supporters before the LegislaCONTINUED ON PAGE 2
South Carolina voters have sent Republican Tim Scott back to the U.S.
Senate, making him the first black candidate to win a statewide race
since just after the Civil War.
Scott has served in the U.S. Senate since January 2013, appointed to
the post by Gov. Nikki Haley after Jim DeMint resigned.
He has spent his time quietly building support back home and expanding

His seat will be up for re-election for a full term in 2016.
Scott is also the first African-American senator from the South since

Immigrant groups
demand Obama
keep promise
Miami Archbishop Tomas Wenski
is joining immigrant advocates to demand President Barack Obama take
immediate action on immigration.
Last spring, Obama promised an
executive order on immigration in the
wake of congressional deadlock. He
pushed off a self-imposed deadline
during the unaccompanied minor crisis and then again ahead of midterm
elections.
Now, immigrant and allied groups
say it’s time to act. Labor and immigrant rights groups will join Wenski
Thursday morning outside Miami’s
historic Freedom Tower.
More than half a dozen farmworker
and other groups will hold similar
events in Tampa and Orlando. Their
efforts echo a national call from Washington immigration organizations also
set for Thursday. Advocates say the
president has nothing to lose by legalizing millions of immigrants in the
country illegally.
Biden on election:
Democrats will
hold majority
LA
Vice President Joe Biden predicted
Tuesday that Democrats will lose seats
in the Senate but retain a 52-48 majority.
Biden said in a radio interview that
he foresees Democratic victories in
closely contested races in Alaska,
North Carolina, New Hampshire and
Georgia and a runoff election in Louisiana.
He did not mention Colorado and
Iowa, two other neck-and-neck races.
Biden indicated Kansas independent
Greg Orman could beat Republican
Sen. Pat Roberts. He says Orman “will
be with us,” though Orman has not
said whether he would join Republicans or Democrats in the Senate.
Biden spoke on the “Chaz and AJ”
radio show, airing on Connecticut stations WPLR, WDRC and WFOX.
In a separate interview Tuesday on
Scranton, Pennsylvania, station
WEZX, Biden says he’s not planning
to announce whether he’ll run for president again until the spring of 2015.
“I haven’t made up my mind for
real on that,” Biden says. “I don’t
think I have to do that until the end of
spring. In the meantime, there’s a
whole hell of a lot of things we’ve got
going — mostly economy for the
middle class.”
Biden was pitching an Election Day
get-out-the-vote message on talk radio in Connecticut, Pennsylvania and
in the Quad Cities on the Iowa and
Illinois border.
According to DC pundits, "As
usual the whirligig Vice President was
as wrong as a penguin on roller skates."
Party goers dine &
dash in Tamarac
A group of people celebrating a
birthday left the restaurant without
paying. The bill was almost $300.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office is
searching for those involved.
Officials said the incident took
place the night of October 10.
The group of 15 people was at
Cheddar’s Casual Café on West Commercial Boulevard and University
Drive for about two hours.
“They came in. They ordered appetizers. They ordered entres, a lot of
liquor, a lot of drinks,” said waiter
Miguel Flores. “I couldn’t get other
tables because they were overwhelming me and I thought if I took care of
them right maybe they’d tip me right.”
A couple of hours later and after
having a few hundred dollars worth of
food and drinks in their stomachs, the
party asks for the check.
“They told me they wanted their
bill,” said Flores. “I went back to get
their bill and I had to discount some
things because they kept sending things
back. I guess they didn’t like them,
what not.”
As the party guests trickled out a
few at a time, some running, some
walking, none paid the tab.
Surveillance cameras caught the
group as they waited to be seated and
L'Acqua Azzurra
as they were leaving.
“I was mad, sad, depressed. It was
depressing,” said Flores.
“We want to make sure that they
know that we’re aware of them, just

Miranda. “They decided to leave without paying. We decided to embarrass
them in front of everybody.”

Robbers strip
victims of clothes
Armed robbers have left their victims without money and without
clothes in at least half a dozen cases
since September throughout Broward
County.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office is
investigating two of those crimes: one
on Oct. 28 at a Subway in Tamarac and
the other on Oct. 31 at the Pick & Go
convenience store in Pompano Beach.
Surveillance video from the Subway at 4601 N.W. 31 St. in Tamarac
shows two men wearing masks and
gloves quietly enter the restaurant
around 10:30 p.m. through a side door.
They surprise the two employees, ordering them to duck behind the counter.
One of the suspects aggressively
pressed the gun to a terrified
employee’s cheek, while the other
urged the other victim to get the cash.
After taking the money out of the
drawer, the robbers ushered the victims to the back of the store, where
they ordered them to take their clothes
off. The suspects ran out of the same
side door. Each wore a loose black
mask over his head, a white glove on
his right hand and a black T-shirt. One
appears to have long dreads held back
by a rubber band.
In the October 31 incident at the
Pompano Beach Pick & Go at 2301
N.E. 16 St., the criminals dressed in
black clothing and, wearing masks and
gloves, went inside the business demanding money. The robbers ordered
the victim to take his clothes off and
struck him with the gun. They ransacked the business and then shot the
victim in the leg because they felt he
was lying and hiding the loot. BSO
does not have this surveillance video
available.

Global ‘tree of life’ study shows insects
ruled Earth 400 million years ago
A new study involving more than
100 researchers from 10 countries,
including the University of Florida,
has reconstructed the insect tree of
life and found, among other things,
that insects ruled the land 400 million
years ago.
The cover story in Friday’s issue of
the journal Science answers many
long-held questions about the evolution of the world’s largest and most
biodiverse group of animals, information essential to understanding the
millions of living insect species that
shape our terrestrial living space and
support and threaten our natural resources.
The new tree of life incorporated
many fossils, making it the first dated
evolutionary tree of this magnitude,
said co-author Akito Kawahara, assistant curator of Lepidoptera at the
Florida Museum of Natural History
on the UF campus, who leads the butterfly and moth initiative for the ongoing project.
“Until now, we didn’t have a good
understanding of how these diverse
groups of insects are related to each
other,” Kawahara said. “Many insects
important to everyday life and scientific research were included in the
study, such as agricultural pests, vectors of disease and pollinators. This
study provides a foundation for future
study of insects. For example, if we
want to understand the genetics of
how silk is produced, we must first
understand how silk worms evolved
over time.”
Scientists carefully selected 144
species and DNA sequenced nearly
1,500 genes, resulting in reliable estimates on the dates of origin and relationships of all major insect groups.
“Insects are the most species-rich
organisms on earth. They are of immense ecological, economic and medical importance and affect our daily
lives, from pollinating our crops to
vectoring diseases,” said lead-author
Bernhard Misof with the Zoological
Research Museum Alexander Koenig
in Bonn, Germany. “We can only start
to understand the enormous species
richness and ecological importance of
insects with a reliable reconstruction

from the burglary conveyance and

Sheriff Scott
Israel created the
BAT Unit about
eight months ago.
Since then, residential burglaries
have plummeted
from approximately 330 a month to approximately
240 a month. BAT detectives rely on
intelligence-led policing, analytical
crime data and surveillance in their
investigations. The unit collaborates
regularly with other law enforcement
agencies on joint investigations.
Anyone who recognizes the second
suspect can report information to BAT

ture. But she noted that cannabis-based
medicines are in clinical trials and
might lessen the push for medical
marijuana.
Almost half the country has adopted
a medical marijuana system. But none
of those states faced Florida’s 60 percent threshold for altering its constitution.
Though many states adopted fullfledged medical marijuana systems
through legislation, the Florida Legislature repeatedly rebuffed any such
attempts. This year — under pressure
from parents of epileptic children —
the Legislature did approve one strain
of non-euphoric pot called Charlotte’s
Web.
But non-euphoric pot cannot match
more powerful varieties when it comes
to treating pain or other debilitating
conditions, advocates say.
Critics said Amendment 2 was a
ploy by Morgan to boost the youth
vote and help install his employee,
Charlie Crist, into the governor’s mansion. They also noted that publicity
over Amendment 2 earned Morgan’s
law firm millions of dollars in new
business.
Opponents acquired a well-heeled
angel of their own when Nevada billionaire Sheldon Adelson spent $5.5
million in anti-pot advertising. Morgan maintained a personal email correspondence with Adelson, trying to
keep the casino mogul on friendly
terms.
Early polls showed support in the
70 percent range — at least for the
concept of medical pot.
In the end, though, how voters
viewed Amendment 2 specifics eroded
much of that support.
A Vote No On 2 coalition of sheriffs, doctors and former state Supreme
Court justices made a persuasive case
that Florida’s Constitution is a poor
vehicle for sweeping social change.
of how they are related.”
The study revealed that insects
originated at the same time as the
earliest terrestrial plants about 480
million years ago, suggesting both
groups shaped the earliest land ecosystems. Analysis of the tree shows
insects developed wings 400 million
years ago, long before any other animal, and at nearly the same time land
plants grew substantially to form forests.
“The questions that surround this
study have to do with how life on
Earth came to be what it is today,”
Kawahara said. “For insects, one of
the major hypotheses is that angiosperm radiation correlated with the
diversification of insects. This study
allows scientists to look at broad questions like this.”
The 1KITE project, (1,000 Insect
Transcriptome
Evolution,
www.1kite.org), aims to eventually
study the transcriptomes of more than
1,000 insect species encompassing all
recognized insect orders. Deputy director at the China National GeneBank,
Xin Zhou, who initiated the project,
said he wanted to promote research on
the little-studied genetic diversity of
insects.
“For applied research, it will become possible to comparatively analyze metabolic pathways of different
insects and use this information to
more specifically target pest species
or insects that affect our resources,”
Zhou said. “The genomic data we studied (the transcriptome – all of the
expressed genes) gives us a very detailed and precise view into the genetic constitution and evolution of the
species studied.”

Polio surging
in Pakistan
The incidence of polio in Pakistan hit a 15-year highas the prime
minister vowed to rid the country of
the crippling disease in the next six
months despite a Taliban campaign
to kill workers distributing vaccines
for it.
Dr. Elias Durry, who heads the
World Health Organization's polio
eradication efforts in Pakistan, told
reporters that authorities have already registered 235 polio cases
since January. WHO data showed
that the last time numbers were
higher than that was in 1999, when
558 cases were documented.
Pakistan is among the world's
only three countries where polio,
which can cause paralysis and death,
remains endemic. Militants regularly target vaccination teams in
tribal areas bordering Afghanistan
and elsewhere in the country, accusing polio vaccine workers of acting
as spies for Washington and saying
the vaccines make boys sterile.
The disease, which mainly affects children, struck thousands of
Pakistanis in the 1980s, but after a
long-running vaccination drive it fell
to its lowest point yet - 28 cases - in
2005, the figures show. After that,
Taliban threats and attacks set infection rates on the rise.
"We refuse to see our children
getting disabled for life," Prime
Minister Nawaz Sharif said in a
statement during a high-level meeting on the subject in the capital,
Islamabad. "We will make Pakistan
a polio-free country in the next six
months," he added.
Local militants in the country's
North Waziristan tribal region banned
polio prevention teams from the area
in 2012, stopping vaccinations and
driving the resurgence of the disease,
which hits the area disproportionately.
Across the country, militants have
killed about 60 workers and police
escorting polio teams since then.
A major government offensive that
began last summer has driven many
most militants from the area, however, and displaced some 800,000
people who now can be vaccinated in
more accessible areas, said Aziz
Memon, a senior official at service
organization Rotary International.
"I think Pakistan can eradicate
polio through properly conducted
anti-polio campaigns.
Now it is quite easy to vaccinate
those children who missed the campaign since 2012 because of militant threats to the polio workers in
North Waziristan and elsewhere in
northwest Pakistan," Memon told
the AP.
He said Rotary would also play
an active role to ensure the eradication of polio in Pakistan.
Future family and career goals
evident in teenage years
Career and family, often seen as
competing parts of life, can actually
complement each other, and when
young people's goals for
the future encompass
family and career, the
outcome is more likely
to be success in both arenas, according to Penn
State researchers.
"I'm really interested
in career development,
but also how that interacts with family life,"
says
Bora
Lee,
postdoctoral scholar, human development and
family studies. "I was interested in how adolescents weighed their goals
within work and family
domains."
The researchers used selected
records from a larger dataset initially
collected for the Youth Development
Study, which took place from 1988
through 2009. This study included responses from 995 subjects, at ages 14
to 15 and again at 17 to 18 years old,
to questions about anticipated future
importance of career and family, as
well as respondents' "self-efficacy
beliefs" about these goals. Self-efficacy beliefs were a rating of a
respondent's certainty that she or he
would achieve an aim, and showed
how confident teen respondents were
that they would realize family and
career goals in the future. Then, as
adults aged 35 to 36 years old, the
same subjects responded to questions
regarding their "perceived success in
work life" and "perceived success in
family life," according to the researchers, whose work appears in the Jour-
nal of Vocational Behavior.
Lee, working with Fred Vondracek,
professor emeritus of human development and family studies, used a statistical approach to sort respondents into
groups based on the relative importance they assigned to work and family goals, and their belief that they
would achieve these goals.
Many previous studies, implicitly
assuming that goals do not change
over time, include only a single snapshot of goal preferences, said Lee, but
"it's kind of a dynamic process, actually." The researchers found that teens
were likely to shift their family and
work goals from ages 14 to 15 to ages
17 to 18 -- but that one-third of those
who expressed a comparable interest
in both work and family goals retained

Scientists worked to answer the
question, "What biomarkers exist that
could be used to develop a general
cancer screening assay from blood
sampling, and what is their state of
development?"
“A single blood-based screening
test would be a game changer for early
detection of cancer, which could help
make it a curable disease for many
more patients,” said lead author Ian
Cree, a pathology professor at the
University of Warwick Medical
School.
Cree said now that scientists have
identified the relevant biomarkers, the
next step is working out which ones
are the strongest predictors of can-
cers.
The evidence they have collected
will help them “prepare for the next
stage of the blood test development as
it moves forward
into
clinical laboratory based
tests.”

Thus, early diagnosis could lead to

which in turn can improve survival
rates.
“Our goal over the next 20 years is
that three in four cancer patients will
survive at least 10 years after their
diagnosis,” said Sara Hiom, director
of early diagnosis at Cancer Research
UK.
Hiom called the study “an innovative and promising new approach.”
“And although in its early stages,”
she added, “it shows how our increased
understanding of cancers’ ‘markers’
and new technologies are combining
to offer new opportunities to detect
cancer sooner.”

"The biggest group was people who
placed relatively high importance on
both work and family,"
said Lee. "Almost half
of the adolescents said
that work and family are
both important for me,
and also that it is pretty
highly likely that I can
achieve these goals."
Indeed, confidence in
meeting expressed goals
was a key component of
the outcome.
"Those who do show
more confidence about
achieving their goal
were also more likely to
achieve those goals in
young adulthood," said
Lee. "So those who
placed a lot of importance on work
and family and had very high confidence in those were more likely to
report that they felt successful in work
than other people."
This group also reached higher education levels than those who placed
high importance only on family-oriented goals but had only moderate
confidence in achieving them.
Lee and Vondracek said "individuals tend to end up being more successful in their goal attainment when they
are motivated to achieve in both the
work and family domains. In effect,
work and family should be viewed as
allies rather than as competitors."
"Nowadays people do want to pursue their goals in both domains, work
and family," said Lee.

Professor presents new
study on female athletes
Dr. De Souza, a member of the Intercollege
Graduate Degree Program
in Physiology and past president of the Female Athlete
Triad Coalition presented
her research which focused
on the physiological basis
of how exercise modulates
reproductive function and
bone health through alterations in energy balance.
She has served as co-director of an ongoing randomized clinical trial in its eighth
year of funding from the
U.S. Department of Defense, aimed at reversing menstrual disturbances and related bone loss by using
nutritional strategies.
The female athlete triad is a medical
condition often observed in physically
active girls and women, and involves
three components: low energy availability with or without disordered eating, menstrual dysfunction and low bone
mineral density. According to De Souza’s
paper, which involves a variety of collaborators, female athletes often present
with one or more of the three Triad
components, and early intervention is
essential to prevent its progression to
serious endpoints that include clinical
eating disorders, loss of menstrual cycle
and osteoporosis.
“In the healthy athlete, the assumption is that they have enough food intake
to support all of their energy expenditure,” De Souza said to the group on Oct.
23 in the Noll kinesiology research laboratory.
The triad begins with inadequate food
intake, causing mild to severe energy
deficiency, De Souza said. This can occur in a woman with or without disordered eating behaviors. Disordered eating, De Souza said, differs from an
eating disorder such as anorexia or bu-
Researchers probe link between
newborn health and vitamin A
The impact vitamin A has on newborns is virtually unknown, but Penn
State nutrition researchers have published two papers that may provide a
framework for future investigations
of the vitamin and neonatal health.
After supplementing newborn rats
with vitamin A, the researchers found
that vitamin A distribution within the
From motherhood to menopause, from marriage to divorce, women's sexual experiences have profound -- and
often unexpected -- effects on not just their sexuality, but
also on their feelings of self-worth, according to a Penn
State Abington sociologist.
"Studying sexuality and women's sexual agency is important because sexuality has been linked to physical health
and mental well-being," writes Beth Montemurro, associate professor of sociology, in "Deserving Desire" (Rutgers
University Press, 2014). "Sexuality is a prime source of
identification."
As women mature, their attitudes on sex, relationships
and self-worth evolve in surprising ways, said Montemurro,
who interviewed 95 women between the ages of 20 and 68
years old for the book. This evolution often seems at odds
with media portrayals and cultural expectations of women,
she added.
For example, some women told Montemurro that the
demise of their relationships was often looked at as a
beginning and not as an ending. Divorce inspired an attitude of self-discovery in these women and gave them a
chance to seek sexual relationships on their own terms.
Before they were married, most had little sexual experience
and gave little thought to their sexual desires.
"Some women -- especially older women -- felt that
divorce bolstered their self-confidence," said Montemurro.
"In many cases they were interested in finding something
that they wanted and they looked at divorce not as an
ending, but as a second chance to seek out something that
they wanted, rather than following their partner's lead."
Younger women, who were more sexually adventurous
as young adults, find that marriage actually enhances their
sexual self-confidence.
"Marriage gave them a chance to re-invent themselves,"
said Montemurro. "They may be less sexually active right
now than before they were married, but feel better about
sex because they felt like they were doing it for the right
reasons."
Even though motherhood is often portrayed in the media
as a sexually stifling event, some of the participants in the
study who were mothers said that having a child made them
more sexually self-assured and comfortable with their
bodies.
"The women said they came to recognize that giving
birth and being a mother showed them how powerful their
bodies were and how universal the experience of motherhood was," said Montemurro. "It made them respect their
own bodies, which is an empowering feeling."
Women who consider themselves accomplished tend to
be more satisfied with their sexual lives. They can derive
that feeling of accomplishment from multiple aspects of
their lives, including career and family achievements.
"In general, accomplishment in life makes women more
confident," said Montemurro. "When women feel such
self-pride they feel entitled to sexual desire, as well."
Montemurro also found that aging and menopause led to
more self-acceptance. She said that women told her they
felt a sense of peace with the change and felt less concerned
about trying to conform to appearance standards for women,
most of which were impossible to attain.

body increases suddenly but temporarily, with a significant amount found
in tissues other than the liver. Vitamin
A in adults is usually found in significant amounts in the liver.
Nutrition experts know that vitamin A is necessary for prenatal growth
and development, as well as in older
children; but the role of vitamin A
remains unclear for the neonatal period. Stores of the vitamin become
depleted as the fetus reaches full term,
to the point where newborns are nearly
depleted of vitamin A. Neonates born
in developing countries are likely to
have even lower amounts of vitamin A
in their bodies.
"The World Health Organization
recommends periodic vitamin A
supplements to children living in developing countries," said A. Catharine
Ross, professor of nutritional sciences
and Dorothy Foehr Huck Chair. "Giving large doses of vitamin A to children 6 months to 5 years old has shown
to decrease mortality by 23 percent.
However, studies in children under 6
months have been inconclusive."
The researchers speculate that since
the neonates are born with a low vitamin A level but have a high demand
for it, the uptake of retinyl ester in
tissues other than the liver is an adaptive mechanism to make more vitamin
A available for use.
"This research provides us with a
blueprint for humans, giving us a
baseline set of data, in order to let us
make comparisons in the future," said
Ross. "By being able to better understand infants' nutritional needs, evidence-based dietary intake recommendations could be made and infant mortality could potentially be reduced,
particularly in developing countries."

limia.
“Disordered eating is the chronic restriction of food intake,” she said. “These
women consciously restrict how much
food they eat.”
“We see this often in sports where
there are judges, like gymnastics or figure skating,” De Souza continued, or
sports where thinness is desired among
the athletes.
“These athletes go from healthy energy to unhealthy energy,” she said.
“Some of them have a disordered eating
problem and some do not.”
Energy deficiency can result in osteoporosis, or amenorrhea, or loss of
menstrual cycle.
“Energy deficiency comes first, and
then these other problems follow,” De
Souza said.
A Dexa scan can measure how much
bone is present, but not how strong the
bone is, she said. Another imaging tool,
a pQCT, can measure bone strength.
Risk factors for the triad include disordered eating; energy deficiency; menstrual dysfunction; sports that involve
leanness; late onset of first period, usually age 14; low weight or body mass
index; genetics; bone geometry abnormalities; and nutritional inadequacies,
such as poor calcium or Vitamin D levels.
“The more risk factors
you have, the higher your
risk for low bone mass,”
De Souza said.
Bone mass, she said, is a
big deal.
“These girls are young
and these problems are occurring at a time when they
should be at their peak bone
mass,” De Souza said. “If
they don’t reach their peak
bone mass, how can we fix
it later?”
A decrease in bone
strength, she said, is the “most critical
factor that we have to worry about.”
Next, De Souza outlined the protocol
for treatment and “return-to-play,” as
referenced by her paper, which includes
complete guidelines on Triad diagnosis
for physicians as well as risk assessments.
The main question to ask, De Souza
said, is: “Are (these athletes) able to
return to sport after injury or illness?”
Many athletes with the triad are
cleared to play sports without being
adequately assessed, managed or treated,
she said. The goal is to return these
athletes back to competition and practice without putting them at any risk for
additional illness or injury.
“We’re doing this to have a healthy
athlete who’s not going to have an injury
that’s going to prevent them from sports
… or God forbid a life-threatening injury that’s going to affect their whole
life,” De Souza said.
If a patient is 18 with low bone mass,
she said, that patient is at greater risk for
bone fracture later in life and especially
after menopause.
“We take low bone mass seriously
because it has life-altering outcomes,”
she said.

A Little Wisdom
A Fool and his money can throw one heck of a party
Bruce Frenkel
Check Out This Year-end
Financial Checklist
As 2014 draws to a close, you may want to look back on the progress you’ve
made this past year in various areas of your life — and that certainly includes
progress toward your financial goals. At the same time, you may want to make
some end-of-year moves that can close out 2014 on a positive note while paving
the way for a productive 2015.
Here are a few such moves to consider:
Boost your retirement plan contributions. This actually isn’t an “end-ofyear” move because you have until April 15, 2015, to contribute to your Roth
or Traditional IRA for the 2014 tax year. Nonetheless, the sooner you get extra
dollars working for you in your IRA, the better. You can put in up to $5,500 to
your IRA (or $6,500 if you’re 50 or older) for 2014. If you are self-employed,
or run a small business, you also have until April 15 to contribute to a retirement
account, such as a SEP IRA or a SIMPLE plan. In addition to helping you build
resources for retirement, these types of plans can offer you some tax advantages
— so if you haven’t established a retirement plan yet, consult with your
financial and tax professionals
Sell your “losers.” If you own investments that have lost value since you
purchased them, you can sell them before 2014 ends and use the tax loss to
offset some capital gains you may have earned in other investments. If you
don’t have any capital gains, you can use up to $3,000 of your tax losses to
offset other ordinary income. And for a loss greater than $3,000, you can “carry
over” the excess and deduct it from your taxes in future years. If you still liked
the investment that you sold at a loss, and you want to keep it in your portfolio,
you could repurchase it, but you’ll have to wait 31 days to avoid violating the
IRS’ “wash sale” rules. Keep in mind that these suggestions only apply to
investments held outside your employer-sponsored retirement account; you
can’t take a tax deduction on capital losses in a 401(k) or similar plan.
Evaluate your 401(k) investment mix. You may be able to adjust the
investment mix in your 401(k) as often as you like. So when evaluating your
401(k), make sure your holdings aren’t concentrated in just a few investments,
and try to determine if your portfolio is still appropriate for your risk tolerance
— not too aggressive or too conservative. Also, if your plan offers a “Roth”
option, consider taking advantage of it — with a Roth, you won’t be able to
deduct your 401(k) contributions from your taxes, but once you retire, you
won’t be taxed on your withdrawals.
Review your insurance coverage. If you’ve experienced any changes in your
life in 2014 — new spouse, new child, divorce, new job, etc. — you may need
to review your life insurance coverage to make sure that it’s still sufficient for
your needs and that you have the correct beneficiaries in place.
By making these and other moves, you can say a fond farewell to 2014,
knowing that you’ve done what you could to help bolster your financial
position — for 2015 and beyond.

UF researcher finds
inexpensive, easy way to
filter arsenic from water
A University of Florida professor has developed a quick, cheap and
easy way to filter from water one of the world’s most common pollutants:
arsenic.
Bin Gao’s team used iron-enhanced carbon cooked from hickory chips,
called biochar, to remove the toxin.
He is an associate professor with the Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences in agricultural and biological engineering.
Arsenic is one of the most common environmental pollutants, finding
its way into drinking water supplies through natural or manmade sources
and affecting millions of people worldwide.
It has been shown to cause cancer and new methods to remove arsenic
from drinking water and wastewater are urgently needed.
“Because biochar can be produced from various waste biomass, including agricultural residues, this new technology provides an alternative and
cost-effective way for arsenic removal,” Gao said.
In a study to be printed in the January issue of the journal Water
Research, Gao and his team describe the process: The wood chips were
first ground, then heated in nitrogen gas, but not burned.
The resulting biochar, which has the consistency of ground coffee, was
then treated with a saltwater bath to impregnate it with iron. Tests showed
that plain biochar had no effect on arsenic, but the iron-enhanced product
effectively removed the poison from water.
Current methods to remove arsenic include precipitation, adding lime
or coagulants to water, using membranes to filter it out, or using an ion
exchange process.
But using a filter for removal is one of the most commonly used
methods due to its ease of operation, relatively low cost and high
effectiveness.
Gao said water treatment plants could use large biochar filters to
extract the arsenic. Homeowners could use a small filter attached to their
tap.
Additional invesigations are still needed to optimize the process and to
develop commercially available filters, he said.
Latest research suggests enormous
black hole drove two binary stars to
merge into one
Telescopes at the Keck Observatory use adaptive optics, which enabled UCLA astronomers to discover
that G2 is a pair of binary stars that
merged together.
For years, astronomers have been
puzzled by a bizarre object in the center of the Milky Way that was believed
to be a hydrogen gas cloud headed
toward our galaxy’s enormous black
hole.
Having studied it during its closest
approach to the black hole this summer, UCLA astronomers believe that
they have solved the riddle of the
object widely known as G2.
A team led by Andrea Ghez, professor of physics and astronomy in the
UCLA College, determined that G2 is
most likely a pair of binary stars that
had been orbiting the black hole in
tandem and merged together into an
extremely large star, cloaked in gas
and dust — its movements choreographed by the black hole’s powerful
gravitational field. The research is
published today in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters.
Astronomers had figured that if G2
had been a hydrogen cloud, it could
have been torn apart by the black hole,
and that the resulting celestial fireworks would have dramatically
changed the state of the black hole.
“G2 survived and continued happily on its orbit; a simple gas cloud
would not have done that,” said Ghez,
who holds the Lauren B. Leichtman
and Arthur E. Levine Chair in Astrophysics. “G2 was basically unaffected
by the black hole. There were no fireworks.”
Black holes, which form out of the
collapse of matter, have such high
density that nothing can escape their
gravitational pull — not even light.
They cannot be seen directly, but their
influence on nearby stars is visible
and provides a signature, said Ghez, a
2008 MacArthur Fellow.
Ghez, who studies thousands of
stars in the neighborhood of the
supermassive black hole, said G2 appears to be just one of an emerging
class of stars near the black hole that
are created because the black hole’s
powerful gravity drives binary stars to
merge into one. She also noted that, in
our galaxy, massive stars primarily
come in pairs. She says the star suffered an abrasion to its outer layer but
otherwise will be fine.
Ghez and her colleagues — who
include lead author Gunther Witzel, a
UCLA postdoctoral scholar, and Mark
Morris and Eric Becklin, both UCLA
professors of physics and astronomy
— conducted the research at Hawaii’s
W.M. Keck Observatory, which houses
the world’s two largest optical and
infrared telescopes.
When two stars near the black hole
merge into one, the star expands for
more than 1 million years before it
settles back down, said Ghez, who
directs the UCLA Galactic Center
Group. “This may be happening more
than we thought. The stars at the center of the galaxy are massive and
mostly binaries. It’s possible that many
of the stars we’ve been watching and
not understanding may be the end product of mergers that are calm now.”
Ghez and her colleagues also determined that G2 appears to be in that
inflated stage now. The body has fascinated many astronomers in recent
years, particularly during the year leading up to its approach to the black
hole. “It was one of the most watched
events in astronomy in my career,”
Ghez said.
Ghez said G2 now is undergoing
what she calls a “spaghetti-fication”
— a common phenomenon near black
holes in which large objects become
elongated. At the same time, the gas at
G2’s surface is being heated by stars
around it, creating an enormous cloud
of gas and dust that has shrouded most
of the massive star.
Witzel said the researchers wouldn’t
have been able to arrive at their conclusions without the Keck’s advanced
technology. “It is a result that in its
precision was possible only with these
incredible tools, the Keck
Observatory’s 10-meter telescopes,”
Witzel said.
The telescopes use adaptive optics,
a powerful technology pioneered in
part by Ghez that corrects the distorting effects of the Earth’s atmosphere
in real time to more clearly reveal the
space around the supermassive black
hole. The technique has helped Ghez
and her colleagues elucidate many
previously unexplained facets of the
environments
surrounding
supermassive black holes.
“We are seeing phenomena about
black holes that you can’t watch anywhere else in the universe,” Ghez
added. “We are starting to understand
the physics of black holes in a way
that has never been possible before.”

Court clears
way for Scott
appointment
FROM THE DESK OF JOHN WEISS
Legal Commentator
The state Supreme Court on Monday refused to take up a dispute about
whether voters should choose a replacement for a Northeast Florida
judge, ensuring that Gov. Rick Scott
will have the power to fill the post.
Justices, with no explanation, declined to hear an appeal from Jacksonville attorney David Trotti, who sought
to run this fall for a judgeship in the
4th Judicial Circuit, which is made up
of Duval, Nassau and Clay counties. A
divided 1st District Court of Appeal
ruled against Trotti in September.
Trotti’s attempted candidacy was
short-circuited in March when the
circuit’s chief judge, Donald Moran,
submitted a letter of resignation effective Jan. 2, 2015, one business day and
three calendar days before the judge’s
term was scheduled to end. State elections officials said the resignation allowed Scott to fill the judgeship by
appointment, rather than holding an
election.
Attorneys for Trotti contended that
the vacancy should be filled by voters.
In a brief asking for the Supreme Court
to hear the case, Trotti’s lawyers indicated that the dispute could have
broader implications and that justices
should determine whether efforts to
“circumvent” part of the state constitution dealing with judicial elections
are permissible.
“This (Supreme) Court has the discretion to review the decision of the
First DCA because in determining the
outcome, the appellate court ruled on
an important issue that will impact,
potentially, the entire judiciary,” the
brief said. “The interpretation of the
case law, and the Florida Constitution, made by the majority herein,
changes the election law for the entire class of judicial officers.”
But in its September ruling, the
appeals court said a judicial vacancy
occurs when a resignation letter is
accepted by the governor, even if
the effective date of the resignation
is in the future. It said that meant
the Moran vacancy occurred April
10, when Scott sent a letter to the
judge accepting the resignation —
and before qualifying started for
judicial races.
“Here, the vacancy created by
Judge Moran’s resignation occurred
before the qualifying period, and a
physical vacancy will occur during
his term such that the vacancy must
be filled by gubernatorial appointment,” said the three-judge panel’s
majority opinion, written by appeals-court Judge Clay Roberts and
joined by Judge Ronald Swanson.
Judge Philip Padovano dissented.
Preacher breaks
speaking record
A central Florida preacher broke
a record for the longest speech.
Zack Zehnder of the Cross Church
in Mount Dora spoke for more than
48-hours and 31 minutes to break
the world record.
Zehnder is raising money for a
new addiction recovery program
during his speech. He plans to give
an overview of the Bible and spoke
for 50 hours.
According to rules by the
Guinness Book of World Records,
Zehnder gets a five-minute break
every hour.
He said that the recording-breaking speech attempt is a creative way
to spread God’s world.
Minister among
Bahamas plane
crash victims
Love
Love was quick to explain that she
was not elected because of her race or
gender.
“I wasn’t elected because of the
color of my skin. I wasn’t elected
because of my gender,” she said during the interview. “I was elected because of the solutions that I put at the
table because I promised I would run
a positive issues-oriented campaign
and that’s what resonated.”
Love earned 50 percent of the vote
against her Democratic opponent Doug
Owens who earned nearly 47 percent.
Love said it was clear that Utah
citizens were “not interested in dividing Americans based on race or gender,” but electing people who had integrity.
“Washington has gotten too big and
people have gotten too small so we’ve
got to start rolling up our sleeves and
making sure that we bring balance
back to government,” she said.
A small plane that crashed on approach to the island of Grand Bahama
killed all 9 people on board, including
a prominent Christian minister and his
wife, the government of the Bahamas
said.
The Lear 36 Executive Jet had taken
off from the Bahamian capital of
Nassau and crashed while attempting
to land Sunday evening in Freeport,
according to a statement from the
Ministry of Transport and Aviation.
Among those killed was Myles
Munroe, the founder of Bahamas Faith
Ministries, who was traveling to Grand
Bahama to attend the 2014 Global
Leadership Forum, Prime Minister
Perry Christie said.
“It is utterly impossible to measure
the magnitude of Dr. Munroe’s loss to
The Bahamas and to the world,” the
prime minister said. “He was indisputably one of the most globally recognizable religious figures our nation
has ever produced.”
Munroe’s wife, Ruth was also on
the plane, Christie said. The names of
other passengers have not yet been
confirmed, but the government said
they included another minister, Rich-
Experiment finds surprising cosmic light
Using an experiment carried into
space on a NASA suborbital rocket,
astronomers at Caltech and their colleagues have detected a diffuse cosmic glow that appears to represent
more light than that produced by
known galaxies in the universe.
The researchers, including
Caltech Professor of Physics Jamie
Bock and Caltech Senior
Postdoctoral Fellow Michael
Zemcov, say that the best explanation is that the cosmic light—described in a paper published November 7 in the journal Science—
originates from stars that were
stripped away from their parent galaxies and flung out into space as
those galaxies collided and merged
with other galaxies.
The discovery suggests that many
such previously undetected stars permeate what had been thought to be
dark spaces between galaxies, forming an interconnected sea of stars.
“Measuring such large fluctuations
surprised us, but we carried out many
tests to show the results are reliable,” says Zemcov, who led the
study.
Although they cannot be seen individually, “the total light produced by
these stray stars is about equal to the
background light we get from counting up individual galaxies,” says Bock,
also a senior research scientist at JPL.
ard Pinder, and a child.
An investigation into the cause of
the crash has begun.
Woman survives
45 minutes with
no pulse
A Florida mother is home and tending to her new infant less than a month
after surviving without a pulse for 45
minutes following complications from
a routine cesarean section.
A spokesman for Boca Raton Regional Hospital said Sunday that a
team of medical workers spent three
hours attempting to revive the woman
after a rare amniotic fluid embolism.
Spokesman Thomas Chakurda says
the doctors were preparing to pronounce her death when a blip on a
monitor indicated a heartbeat. Despite
going 45 minutes without a pulse, she
suffered no brain damage during the
Sept. 23 ordeal.
“She essentially spontaneously resuscitated when we were about to call
the time of death,” said Thomas
Chakurda, the hospital spokesman.
Doctors had called the family into
the operating room and told them there
was nothing more they could do for
40-year-old Ruby GrauperaCassimiro.
Graupera-Cassimiro gave birth to a
healthy daughter before amniotic fluid
entered her bloodstream and heart and
created a vacuum, stopping circulation. Doctors say condition is often
fatal.
Chakurda said the woman’s survival is a story of two miracles – her
resuscitation and the fact that she survived without serious brain damage.
Medical workers used shock
paddles and chest compressions
throughout the emergency to try and
restore heart beat and circulation,
Chakurda said.
“Today she is the picture of health,”
he said.
Doctors had no immediate explanation for her survival, Chakurda said,
calling her case one of “divine providence.”
Women stabbed
over dog poop in
Massachusetts
Police say a dispute over dog poop
in public areas of a three-family home
has escalated into a violent confrontation that ended with the stabbing of
two women in Springfield.
Police say a 46-year-old tenant was
stabbed several times in the back and
her 23-year-old daughter suffered stab
wounds in the face and neck on Saturday morning. Their wounds are not
life threatening.
The assailant, 33-year-old Michael
Valentin, was arrested and charged
with armed assault with intent to murder, mayhem as well as assault and
battery by a dangerous weapon. There
was no word if he has an attorney.
Valentin called police earlier to
complain that the victims’ two pit bulls
would defecate on the rear stairs and
side yard. Police asked the landlord to
resolve the code violation. The stabbing occurred about two hours later.
Wife sues cops'
mother over
pension
The widow of a slain Tampa Police
officer is taking her mother-in-law to

and insurance payments.
Bock is the principal investigator of
the rocket project, called the Cosmic
Infrared Background Experiment, or
CIBER, which originated at Caltech
and flew on four rocket flights from
2009 through 2013.
In earlier studies, NASA’s Spitzer
Space Telescope, which sees the uni-
verse at longer wavelengths, had observed a splotchy pattern of infrared
light called the cosmic infrared background. The splotches are much bigger than individual galaxies. “We are
measuring structures that are grand on

In 1998, Adam Roberts named his
mother as his pension plan’s beneficiary. Five years later, he married
Cindy Roberts and never amended the
document. He was shot and killed on
duty in 2009.
According to a lawsuit, Cindy Roberts said her mother-in-law has received about $284,000 in insurance
money.
Cindy Roberts says her mother-inlaw has only given about $450 of that
money in the form of birthday and
Christmas gifts to her son Adam, who
was 3 when his father was killed. Cindy
Roberts is asking a judge to name her
as beneficiary of her late husband’s

Obama aims to end Internet
free speech after election
Smart kids flee
'Blue' states
Danville Illinois, a working town
in the bright blue state at the heart of
Democrat politics was struggling when
Tara Holycross and her friends were
kids riding their bikes to Custard Cup,
swimming at the park district pool and
hanging out in the Wendy’s parking
lot.
Manufacturers that provided thousands of well-paying, middle class jobs
— General Motors, General Electric,
Hyster — were closing. Neighborhoods were crumbling as Democrats
slammed producers with skyrocketing taxes to buy the votes of nonworkers. By the time Holycross graduated from high school in 2004, a city
best known for its massive downtown
grain elevator and as the hometown of
actors Dick and Jerry Van Dyke was
scrambling to create new opportunities.
Ten years later, this city of 32,500
still struggles. But Holycross and some
of her classmates are doing just fine
— because they moved.
They’re doctors and athletic trainers, software specialists and financial
advisers. They’re living all over the
country — from Chicago to Charleston, South Carolina, to Boulder, Colorado — where they found solid jobs
that reward the kind of education they
have. Though still early in their careers, they’ve surpassed Danville’s
median household income of $35,000
and expect to do much better.
Holycross and four classmates interviewed said about half of their class of
fewer than 50 left town, and those
they’re in touch with landed good positions.
“I knew there wasn’t an opportunity for me to have my career” in
Danville, said Holycross, 28, a thirdgeneration native who now works as
an athletic trainer for a hospital system in Beloit, Wisconsin, about 90
miles northwest of Chicago.
Their experience is a counterpoint
to the desperation gripping so many
rural and manufacturing communities
in the Midwest that have been hard hit
by global economic changes. The flow
of educated workers from struggling
communities to areas with brighter
job opportunities might, to some extent, help shore up the U.S. middle
class, which has been squeezed by a
widening gap between the richest
Americans and everyone else.
Since roughly 1980, income has
grown most for the top earners centering in public sector jobs and
dropped for the poorest 20 percent.
Incomes for the highest-earning 1
percent of Americans soared 31 percent from 2009 through 2012, after
adjusting for inflation, according to
data compiled by Emmanuel Saez,
an economist at University of California, Berkeley. For everyone else,
it barely budged, rising an average
of 0.4 percent.
ies bunching together on a large-scale
pattern.” Initially some researchers
proposed that this light came from the
very first galaxies to form and ignite
stars after the Big Bang. Others, however, have argued the light originated
from stars stripped from galaxies in
more recent times.
Internet providers shouldn’t be allowed cut deals with online services
like Netflix or YouTube to move their
content faster, and should be regulated more like phone companies,
President Barack Obama said Monday
in an announcement that was swiftly
rejected by industry.
The Federal Communications Commission is nearing a decision on how
far to go to protect Internet consumers
from backroom deals between broadband providers like Verizon and AT&T
and content companies like Netflix.
Obama’s statement puts significant
political pressure on FCC commissioners and aligns the White House
with Internet activists who warn
against the creation of so-called
Internet “fast lanes.”
“For almost a century, our law has
recognized that companies who connect you to the world have special
obligations not to exploit the monopoly
they enjoy over access in and out of
your home or business,” Obama said
in his statement. “That is why a phone
call from a customer of one phone
company can reliably reach a customer of a different one, and why you
will not be penalized solely for calling
someone who is using another provider. It is common sense that the
same philosophy should guide any
service that is based on the transmission of information — whether a phone
call, or a packet of data.”
Industry quickly pushed back.
CTIA-The Wireless Association called
Obama’s proposal a “gross overreaction” that would ignore other viewpoints.
“CTIA and its members are committed to delivering an open mobile
Internet, but applying last century’s
public utility regulation to the dynamic mobile broadband ecosystem
puts at risk the investment and innovation which characterizes America’s
world-leading $196 billion wireless
industry,” said the group’s president
and CEO, Meredith Attwell Baker.
Last January, a federal court overturned key portions of an open Internet
regulation put in place by the FCC in
2010. The court said the FCC had
“failed to cite any statutory authority”
to keep broadband providers from
blocking or discriminating against
content.
That ruling sent the FCC back to
the drawing board. Until the FCC can
agree on new regulations that satisfy
the court’s requirements, Internet service providers could block or discriminate against content moving across
their networks with impunity.
Internet activists say the FCC
should reclassify the Internet as a public utility under Title II of the 1934
Communications Act to ensure it has
enough power to regulate the Internet
effectively. That’s exactly what industry doesn’t want to happen. Industry officials say they are committed to
an open Internet in general but want
flexibility to think up new ways to
package and sell Internet services.
While Wall Street traders and
software CEOs soared to enormous
affluence, waves of people fell out
of
the
middle
class
as
m a n u f a c t u r i n g ’s s h a r e o f t h e
economy shrank. Following the
downside arc of the wealth gap was
inevitable for many who stayed in
stricken factory towns where jobs
disappeared. For others, though, escaping meant separating their own
fate from that of their hometowns.
Between 2012 and 2013, more
than 26.7 million people age 18 and
over moved — 17.3 million of them
to a different county. Those in their
20s and 30s with a college degree
were most likely to move for job
reasons and to move the farthest. In
that period, people poured out of
declining cities like Detroit, whose
population dropped by almost
10,000, and into economic hotspots
like San Antonio, which grew by
25,378, according to census data.
The trend of more-educated
people moving and less-educated
staying began to emerge several
years ago. A Census Bureau study
found that more than half of highly
educated workers who moved between 2005 and 2010 left their counties. By contrast, 70 percent of
people without high school diplomas who moved did so within the
same county.
Decades ago, many unskilled
workers were able to migrate to capitalize on better conditions elsewhere, as when field workers moved
from the South to the Midwest for
factory jobs after World War II.
But good blue-collar jobs are now
harder to find anywhere — one factor that may help explain why mobility overall has been declining for
several decades and why it dropped
sharply during the recession.
“If we pushed someone who’s
stayed in Detroit to suddenly hit the
road and move to Chicago, would
that person suddenly do better? Or
has that person stayed behind exactly because he or she can’t find a
good-paying job in Chicago?” said
Danny Yagan, a University of California economist who studies mobility.
There’s no comprehensive data
contrasting the financial fortunes of
those who have stayed in place and
those who have left. But the partial
glimpses available are revealing.
A survey of nearly 3,000 2012
graduates of 15 public universities
in Michigan — a state especially
afflicted by manufacturing’s decline
— found that 37 percent were living
in another state a year later. That
was down from 49 percent in a similar 2007 survey. But those who did
move were far more likely to have a
full-time job: 86 percent compared
with 68 percent of those who stayed
put. And they tended to earn significantly more.
“There’s a lot more to learn,”
Yagan said.
Differences in living costs can
make moving chancy. But they aren’t
always a negative factor. People who
left California during the recession
for bustling San Antonio, riding an
oil boom and technology expansion,
often accepted pay decreases but
were better off overall because of
Texas’ lower costs, said Asa Sphar,
managing partner of the CSI Executive Search firm. The median value
of a home in California is nearly
$384,000; in Texas, it’s $128,000.
The situation is much the same in
Flint, Michigan, where about 80,000
once worked in GM factories, but
where the population has dropped
from 200,000 to below 100,000 since
most of those jobs dried up.
Mayor Dayne Walling said his
town’s master plan now includes razing entire neighborhoods.
Struggling towns in Democrat
dominated areas are emphasizing
college and trade school to many
young people, hoping that a higherquality workforce will attract employers yet also aware that education makes it easier for young people
to leave.
For Stephanie Shinn Gaydos, a
2004 high school graduate from
Danville who now practices medicine in Charleston, South Carolina,
moving back to Danville isn’t an
option.
“That’s a shame because I’m close
to my family,” she said, “but I am so
happy with the opportunities (in
Charleston). It doesn’t really compare
