Planned Parenthood (US) pays out for killing teen in abortion 7 February 2014The Planned Parenthood abortion business has been forced to pay a $2 million settlement to the family of a black woman it killed in a botched legal abortion in 2012.Walter Hoye, a black pro-life leader who has closely followed the case, obtained a copy of the court order awarding the settlement. The settlement document indicates Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation must pay her son Alvin Jones III, who was one at the time of Reaves’ death from the botched legal abortion.He told LifeNews today that the settlement is an acknowledgement on Planned Parenthood’s part that it took Reaves’ life, but he said he’s disappointed the abortion giant won’t be held accountable further.“In my opinion, Planned Parenthood is guilty of criminal negligence, depraved indifference, and gross medical incompetence,” Hoye said. “Now that the case is settled, we will never know how a jury would have reacted.”“Finally, what happens to Planned Parenthood’s late term abortionist Mandy Gittler and their professionally trained staff operating out of their modern downtown Chicago facilities?” Hoye asked.The payouts of the settlement do not begin until Tonya’s son turns eighteen (18) in 2029.Tonya Reaves, a 24-year old woman, died from three major complications during a botched second-trimester abortion suffered at a Chicago area Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on July 20, 2012. read more

Tony Pulis doesn’t expect Tottenham to come back in for Saido Berahino

first_img The Baggies head coach reckons any future transfer to White Hart Lane from The Hawthorns is a non-starter. The striker is set to return for Albion in the Barclays Premier League against Southampton on Saturday just over a week after he issued a strike threat on Twitter. The Baggies rejected four bids from Spurs over the summer with the initial payment on the deals understood to have angered Albion. Two of the offers came on deadline day last week and sparked Berahino to suggest on social media he would not play for the club again. “Personally I don’t think Tottenham will ever come back,” Pulis said. “I don’t think that will happen. “There are other clubs out there who if they’re interested, they’re interested, but I’m sure Saido will deal with it in a different day to how he did this time. “I just think most probably the two clubs have tried to do a deal and it’s not worked and not happened. “I don’t see Daniel (Levy, Tottenham chairman) coming back to try to sign Saido again. I might be wrong. “It is not anything. It’s just my feeling. I just don’t see Daniel coming back.” Berahino, who missed the last three games during the transfer saga, could replace Salomon Rondon against the Saints after the striker travelled to Venezuela for international duty. Boss Tony Pulis believes Saido Berahino will never join Tottenham from West Brom. Jonny Evans and Anders Lindegaard could make their debuts after joining from Manchester United. But Pulis is not concerned about the crowd’s reaction to Berahino, who also had a transfer request rejected last month. “We all make mistakes in life,” he said. “The supporters have to judge what they judge and see what they see in their own eyes. “It’s up to the supporters, I can’t tell what to do and what not to do.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Their coach said we’d come a long way. They still swept us by several runs, but we played the whole seven innings. Our kids wanted to compete and wanted to do well.”A planned end-of-season JV tournament was cancelled when weather wouldn’t cooperate, and there were no good options for rescheduling.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBarker said he was very pleased with individual and team improvement over the season.“We started playing our best baseball by the end of the season, he said. “We were getting to be a really tough team. We started making the plays in the field, getting some timely hits, and we were getting solid pitching.It took awhile to blend the large group, some coming from the different middle school programs, he said. “Everybody got comfortable. Everybody found their roles where they were able to do a good job.”As the season progressed, they worked on executing more difficult plays at first and third base.“We started doing the little things,” Barker said, “improving our baseball IQ and capitalizing on it.”He said the goal of the JV program for him is to get students ready to play the next year. They learn what they need to work on to qualify to play varsity. Some will continue to practice in summer baseball programs.“Different kids respond differently and mature differently, and a lot of things could happen between now and March, but that’s the goal,” he said. “It’s not so much to win every game, but we teach the kids to compete at every game.”Find in-depth coverage of local news in the Mount Desert Islander.

USC routs California in 74-54 victory

first_imgUSC defeated Cal 74-54 at the Galen Center on Saturday, marking the largest victory over Cal since 2005.New Year’s Eve marked several firsts for the Women of Troy: the first conference victory for the USC Trojans and junior forward Christina Marinacci’s career-high 23 points.Following the loss to Stanford on Thursday, USC aimed to improve its rebounding and second-chance opportunities.“Rebounding is our biggest key,” USC coach Michael Cooper said. “We lost the rebounding war tonight by four, but, then again, sometimes things work in different ways for you.”Sophomore forward Cassie Harberts led the Women of Troy with nine rebounds. Briana Gilbreath posted eight rebounds and Christina Marinacci added seven, combining for a total of 40 for USC.“If you can compete against these top rebounding teams like Cal, who is the number three rebounding team, it gives you a chance to win,” Cooper said.Harberts and Marinacci posted 23 points each against the Golden Bears.“[Harberts and Marinacci] have a unique ability about them because they are very mobile,” Cooper said. “They have to carry the load for us. It’s always a team effort that they have to shoulder the majority of that down post-ugly play — rebounding, banging, and getting us some points on the offensive end.”Senior guard Ashley Corral was 4-for-4 with 3-pointers giving the Trojans an early lead in the first half. Corral finished with 13 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds.“I think the one thing that we have on our side is that we are a very good executing team,” Cooper said. “When we execute, move the ball around and stop taking quick shots, it enables us to not only score the basket but also get offensive rebounds.”Now 1-1 in Pac-12 conference play, USC hopes to continue its momentum as it will face tough competition on the road. “With those two teams, Arizona State being a very big team and Arizona, we’re going to have to execute well on offense and play good defense,” Cooper said.USC will travel to Arizona next week to face Arizona State and Arizona. The Women of Troy will first visit Tempe to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. and will take on the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday at 1 p.m.last_img read more

Dodgers haven’t decided on September plan for Triple-A terror Gavin Lux

first_imgATLANTA – They have done it before.In 2015, the Dodgers’ top prospect was a shortstop. They brought him up as a September callup and played him at a different position occasionally. But by the time the postseason started, Corey Seager had played his way into an every-day role, taking the shortstop job from veteran Jimmy Rollins.The Dodgers’ top prospect is once again a shortstop, Triple-A terror Gavin Lux. But things are much different at the big-league level than they were in 2015. This year, the Dodgers have a group of established big-leaguers who can play one or both middle-infield positions – Seager, Max Muncy, Chris Taylor, Kike’ Hernandez, Jedd Gyorko and Kristopher Negron.“We’ve got a lot of really talented players that have helped us get to this point and deserve to play,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said about the chances that Lux will be called up and get significant playing time with the Dodgers in September. “If we have an injury or lack of performance in an area that is concerning, then he is certainly a candidate. But right now, we’ve had a lot of players contribute to getting us to where we are. Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco “I think more of our mental energy is being spent on how to configure our pitching staff (for the postseason) more than our position players that are doing pretty well.”Lux has destroyed Triple-A pitching. He had 68 hits in his first 39 games with the OKC Dodgers, batting .415 with a 1.266 OPS and 32 extra-base hits (17 doubles, four triples and 11 home runs). At one point, he hit home runs in five consecutive games. A 50-game streak of reaching base only recently ended.But Lux is not on the Dodgers’ 40-man issue, a complicating factor if they want to bring him up in September.“I don’t know,” Friedman said of the likelihood that Lux will join the Dodgers when rosters expand. “I think a lot of it goes into what our 40-man situation is with our pitchers and just making sure, assuming we got all of our guys from the 60(-day Injured List) or most of them back – you have those moves and then other potential non-roster (guys). There’s just a lot of factors that go into that.”Lux does not have to be on the 40-man roster to do a ‘ride along’ like Will Smith did last fall. Smith traveled with the team throughout most of September, worked out with the team and went through all the game-planning meetings with the other catchers, all while not being on the active roster. The experience sped up Smith’s learning curve coming in to 2019 and Lux could do the same treatment this year.“Could be,” Friedman said. “I think being involved in the pre-game work and being involved with our positioning conversations and being able to follow it in a game, how to read swings – things that Corey kind of learned on the fly, doing it at the major-league level. If you can kind of simulate that and knock out some of that in a stress-free environment – just like Will was able to focus on game planning in a stress-free environment – it’s helpful.“So that’s kind of the worst case. On merit, he’s deserved an opportunity to come up. It doesn’t always work where it lines up that way. Given that we’re still in the middle of August, that decision hasn’t been made yet.”ROSTER MOVESRight-hander Tony Gonsolin and veteran infielder Jedd Gyorko were added to the active roster for Sunday’s game.Related Articles Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start center_img In order to clear room on the roster, infielder Edwin Rios and right-hander Josh Sborz were returned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Rios was 6 for 20 (.300) with a double and two home runs in nine games with the Dodgers this month.Roberts said Gonsolin would stay in the rotation for one more start but beyond that “remains to be seen.” That lines Gonsolin up to make his next start against the New York Yankees.Dustin May, meanwhile, will pitch out of the bullpen “for the near future – but that could change also,” Roberts said. It’s “a very good possibility” that May could be used to fill the multi-innings role vacated by Julio Urias while he serves a 20-game suspension for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy.TAYLOR, HERNANDEZ COMING SOONChris Taylor went 1 for 4 while playing seven innings at second base Saturday in his third rehab game with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. Taylor is 5 for 10 in those three games.Kike’ Hernandez was 0 for 2 with a pair of walks while playing five innings at second base for the Dodgers’ Arizona Summer League Saturday, the second game of his rehab assignment.“I think as we sit here today, activation on Tuesday is a likely possibility for both guys,” Roberts said Sunday.ALSORoberts said right-hander Ross Stripling has made progress in his throwing program.
