‘We avoided a disaster’: Bystander saves baby boy from car on hot day, mom arrested

first_imgABC News(VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla.) — After a quick-thinking bystander noticed a baby boy in the back seat of a car on a hot Florida day, Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said, “We avoided a disaster.”“Thank the Lord for a good Samaritan,” he said. The baby is safe and the mother has been arrested for child neglect.The close call began Tuesday afternoon in a strip-mall parking lot in Orange City when Jessica Kaiser, a passerby, saw what looked like a doll in the back seat of a car, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.They said she realized it was a real baby and called 911.She and her husband opened the unlocked door and found the baby boy was in his car seat and was OK, the sheriff’s office said.The temperature reached 93 degrees Tuesday with a heat index, which gauges what it felt like, of 103 degrees.Deputies and firefighters arrived and determined the 8-month-old “was in good health and good spirits,” the sheriff’s office said, adding that he had not been in the car long before Kaiser and her husband found him.The little boy was smiling and laughing with the firefighters who were attending to him, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Andrew Gant told ABC News. But they said if he hadn’t been found early, the situation could have been worse.The baby’s mother, 33-year-old Meagan Burgess, arrived back at the car about 24 minutes after the 911 call was made, the sheriff’s office said.“If not discovered, he would have been left unsupervised in an unlocked black vehicle, parked on black asphalt parking lot, in 93 degree weather for approximately twenty-four minutes,” the sheriff’s office said.When Burgess returned, she told the deputies on the scene she forgot the baby was in the car, as she had just dropped off several other children with a family member.She said leaving the baby in the car “as her worst fear” and that she had “seen people do this on the news,” the sheriff’s office said.Burgess was arrested and charged with child neglect, the sheriff’s office said. She made her first court appearance Wednesday.The Florida Department of Children and Families was notified, the sheriff’s office said.“We can’t hammer home enough how important it is for parents to say on top of their game and understand that that little life is depending on you,” Sheriff Chitwood said Wednesday. “It’s people like Jessica Kaiser, by being aware of their surroundings, who saved that young baby’s life, and I couldn’t be more proud.”Children’s bodies can heat up much faster than adults’ and their internal organs begin to shut down after their core body temperature reaches 104 degrees, according to a report from the National Safety Council. On an 86-degree day, for example, it would take only about 10 minutes for the inside of a car to reach a dangerous 105 degrees.According to the advocacy group kidsandcars.org, there have been 25 hot car deaths this year.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Family of woman killed in ‘cold medicine murder’ filled with regret

first_imgCourtesy Lauren Hugelmaier family(RALEIGH, N.C.) — The family of Lauren Phelps, who was brutally murdered by her husband last year, spoke out in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday to warn other families about the signs of domestic violence.Matthew Phelps, an aspiring pastor, told police that he’d taken too much cold medicine when he fatally stabbed his wife inside their North Carolina home on Sept. 1, 2017, but her family offered a more sinister explanation for the murder.“He planned the whole thing from the get-go in my opinion, right from day one to the end,” the slain woman’s father, Dale Hugelmaier, told Good Morning America on Wednesday. “The last time I saw my daughter, she came over looking for a three-ring binder. She was nervous and a little edgy and it didn’t look Lauren at all. … She looked a mess.“I regret it now — that I didn’t ask questions about what was going on,” he added.Sitting alongside his wife, Laurie, and his older daughter, Beth Anger, Dale Hugelmaier said his 29-year-old daughter was being abused by her husband and was too afraid to tell anyone. Now, he’s haunted by memories from her last days and constantly wondering whether he could have saved her, he said.“I think about it everyday. What I did wrong. What I missed. Till this day I just regret not knowing or keeping my eyes open and watching,” Dale Hugelmaier said. “I just took everything as is.”Matthew Phelps, who called 911 to report the murder, apologized to the Hugelmaiers in court earlier this month after pleading guilty to first-degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole, but the family says they’re still not satisfied with the result.When asked about forgiving Matthew Phelps, Dale Hugelmaier replied: “No. Never. I mean, I’ll take him to my grave. And I’ll still hate him.”Two months before her death, Lauren Phelps revealed horrifying details about her husband’s previous marriage, including claims that he assaulted his prior wife and lied to her about the nature of their separation, according to the family.“He was so good at manipulating the situation,” her mother, Laurie, said before breaking down in tears. “They told us that he had killed her and that he had stabbed her. And he had stabbed her so many times that they would have to count the stab wounds in the autopsy.“She was laying on her stomach on the floor. He was sitting on her back stabbing her,” she added.The couple had been married for 10 months at the time of the murder, but the family said Lauren Phelps was ready to end it.“I think, that night when he left with another woman, she just said, ‘I’m done. I can’t do it,’” Anger said. “That was the night he killed her.”Anger said she’d spoken to her sister just a few hours before she died. She said the couple had been arguing over Matthew Phelps’ alleged cheating and Lauren Phelps said she notified him about her plans to leave.“I think that he made a decision that day that Lauren was not gonna leave him, even if that meant he had to kill her,” Anger told “GMA.” “The police called him a monster. And we’re talking about homicide detectives who see homicides every day.”Investigators said Lauren Phelps was found lying in the fetal position on the couple’s bedroom floor, suffering from 123 stab wounds, including some to her head, neck and arms, according to an autopsy report.“I have blood all over me and there’s a bloody knife on the bed,” Matthew Phelps, said in a 911 call. “I think I did it.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Halloween — it’s a scream!

first_imgSitting around the glow of a fake fire in a darkened room at the Harvard Allston Education Portal’s “Treat and Greet,” Harvard undergraduate Ed Portal mentors told a rapt audience of diminutive witches, ghouls, and hippies a story about a Nebraskan goblin that had trouble falling asleep.The Friday event was the second installment of Harvard’s “Treat and Greet” at 175 North Harvard St. The community get-together offered a fun, festive occasion for Allston neighbors to mingle, meet Harvard students and staff, and learn more about the Harvard departments, programs, and organizations in Barry’s Corner.The scary storytelling station in the Ed Portal was one of the series of activities undergraduate mentors hosted for their young visitors that evening. Just outside, Ed Portal mentors helped witches and “Star Wars” characters decorate pingpong “eyeballs” to place in spoons, which the youngsters then carried while racing, trying not to drop them. A short walk across the parking lot, the Harvard Ceramics Studio Haunted House delighted visitors.Mentor Nick Perkons helped princesses and superheros mummify each other with maximum toilet paper coverage. “You might want to keep your hands to the sides. It will be easier,” he advised.Inside, a 4-year-old princess kitty was busy at work at the dry ice station. “I’m watching an experiment and it’s going to EXPLODE!” she said excitedly as a bowl of colored soapy water transformed into a rapidly bubbling cauldron with the addition of dry ice.Nearby, in a small conference room used for one-on-one science, math, and writing sessions, Harvard Achievement Support Initiative (HASI) staff showed two mothers with young children how molding sand can help children of all ages learn.Raquel Almeida, mother of Beatriz, 3, and Luana, 1, brought her daughters to this year’s “Treat and Greet” event after enjoying it last year. “It’s nice for us to see what’s happening in the Ed Portal and the initiative Harvard takes in the community,” said Almeida.Almeida, who lives in Brighton, said she loved having more things to do within walking or biking distance and is anxiously awaiting the opening of Stone Hearth Pizza and Maki Maki, the new sushi restaurant, which will be in Brighton Mills Shopping Center. She also got a sneak peek of the Ed Portal annex that will offer additional community programming space focused on arts and leisure activities for all ages. The annex is scheduled to open later this winter. “I’m excited about the whole thing,” she said. “It’s really nice to see more things happening in the neighborhood.”Allston residents Jennifer and Mario Alvarez and their 9-year-old son, Sebastian, and 1-year-old daughter, Mia, walked to the party from their house two blocks away. Sebastian, who goes to the Gardner Pilot Academy, was dressed as a the character from “Scream.” He has been coming to the Allston Education Portal since he was 5 years old, originally to learn science, but now he works on his writing with a tutor. “He is a good student, but has many ideas and wants guidance on how to organize them,” said his mother. “We love the academic enrichment Sebastian gets from the Ed Portal.”The lights of Stone Hearth twinkled across the street as workers made a final push to ready the restaurant for opening this week. Despite not being officially open, Stone Hearth still provided pizza for the occasion, which partygoers enjoyed while listening to the Boston Minstrels, who performed such classics as “Monster Mash.”Tim McHale, Allston resident and founder and director of the Boston Minstrels, thought this year’s “Treat and Greet” was a real success. Harvard’s community events provide “great opportunities for families and children to come together,” he said. “Allston and Harvard have been growing together for the last eight years.” Experimentations Tiana Guillermo, 7, experiments with dry ice and soap with classmates from the Gardner Pilot Academy in the Harvard Allston Education Portal.

Forage Pest Management

first_imgDrought-like conditions this summer are forcing Georgia forage farmers to delay treatments for Bermuda grass stem maggot, according to Lisa Baxter, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension forage specialist.It is normally recommended that farmers wait seven to 10 days after harvest, then apply a pyrethroid insecticide labeled for forages at the recommended rate, then repeat treatment seven to 10 days later.A lack of rain across the state this summer calls for that treatment timeline to be tweaked, Baxter said.“The problem is that, in a drought, we don’t have green leaves seven days after harvest. If there aren’t green leaves, there are no adult flies out there and that is what the pyrethroid is killing — the adult flies — not the other stages of the stem maggot,” she said.For this reason, Baxter is recommending that Georgia forage producers hold off on the first treatment if they are experiencing below normal rainfall. “It feels good to put out the chemical like it says to on the calendar, but if the grass doesn’t match that, we’ve got to wait,” she said.Most producers harvest on a 28-day interval, while some try to stretch their harvest window to 35 days to attempt to harvest more hay, although the quality may drop, Baxter said.According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, parts of Georgia are experiencing abnormally dry conditions, especially in middle Georgia around Houston County. Little rainfall equates to slow growth for forages, especially if they’re not being irrigated.“The way the damage happens, the fly has to lay its egg on a leaf. When the egg hatches, the larvae go into the stem and chew around in there, which is what kills the top (of the plant). If there are no green leaves for flies to lay eggs on, the whole life cycle stops,” Baxter said.Baxter has delayed some research trials and Extension demonstrations on lightly irrigated plots because there wasn’t enough growth to treat with insecticide.Bermuda grass stem maggot was first discovered in southern Georgia in 2010 and is a persistent problem for hay producers. Baxter said that the pest appeared earlier this year because of unseasonably warm temperatures. The pest damages Bermuda grass hayfields and pastures throughout the Southeast U.S. and is regularly seen throughout the Coastal Plain region up to Macon.“(The pest) kills the top two leaves of the plant. Once it damages the top, we don’t get any more upright growth out of the plant and it really hurts our yield. We can see as much as 80% yield loss if we’re not careful,” Baxter said. “It’ll look like you’ve frosted the top of your hayfield because of the dead stems at the top.”For up to date information about Georgia’s climate conditions, see UGA agricultural climatologist Pam Knox’s blog, Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast.last_img read more

Australian solar installations set records in 2018

first_imgAustralian solar installations set records in 2018 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:2018 was a record year for Australia’s solar PV sector across all segments, with more than 2 GW of large-scale PV added, and over 40% increase in residential PV.Based on data collected by Green Energy Trading, Australia added over 3,775 MW of solar capacity last year, up from 1,270 MW in 2017. There was 2,083 MW of big PV added last year, around half of it in Queensland, up from a meager 119 MW in 2017.This boom is set to spill over to 2019, which is in line for even bigger figures given the capacity of large-scale solar project currently under construction. According to the Clean Energy Council’s figures released in December, there are over 9 GW of large-scale solar projects currently under construction or soon to start. This totals an investment of almost $11.5 billion, creating 8,834 jobs.As the number of Australian rooftop solar PV systems passed the two million mark late last year, with an average six panels installed a minute, both residential and commercial grew by more than 40%, reaching 1,227 MW and 351 MW respectively. The main drivers for home owners to install PV continue to be high electricity prices and falling costs of solar accompanied by a shorter payback period.The analysts remind that while the stabilisation in electricity prices after large rises in prior years could lead to drop off in the residential segment, a noticeable decline in sales seems unlikely. “A lot of the growth in capacity has been driven by upsizing not just growth in number of installations,” Edis says, noting that the residential sector is effectively hitting a ceiling on its ability to upsize system size.Last year, small power stations with the capacity between 100 kW – 5 MW took off big time and grew by more than 132%. This new solar sector, which comprises mainly rooftop systems and a bit of ground mount mixed in, will be the segment to watch this coming year.More: Solar PV capacity triples in 2018 amid utility-scale boomlast_img read more

Are you the king of your cyber security domain?

first_imgThat is the question that a tool released by the FFIEC, an organization of federal bank regulators including the NCUA, released late in June.  It is currently available on NCUA’s website.  I would strongly suggest your credit union go through the process for assessing its credit risk outlined by the FFIEC. When it comes to protecting against hackers, the areas the regulators want examined are areas you either have already examined or better start examining.The FFIEC defines Cybersecurity as the process of protecting consumer and bank information by preventing, detecting, and responding to attacks. What the FFIEC is attempting to do with this assessment tool is prod institutions of all sizes into adopting a standardized approach to periodically reviewing the likelihood that they will be attacked and consider whether they have the appropriate level of resources to deter and defend against such an attack. It’s similar to what credit unions are already expected to do as part of assessing their BSA risks and the Red Flags of Identity Theft, only this assessment is intended to zero in specifically on Cybersecurity. The key is not only doing the assessment but making sure it is periodically reviewed. After all, cyber threats evolve almost as quickly as Donald Trump can find a new group of people to insult and your credit union is dealing with more and more technology.How do you ascertain your credit union’s Inherent Risk Profile? By reviewing and ranking your credit union’s technologies and connection types (e.g. the number of Internet Service providers and third party connections); delivery channels (e.g. do you provide person to person transfers or do all cash transactions have to be facilitated by a teller?); its mobile and online products and services; organizational characteristics (e.g. how many direct employees and third party providers can access your IT system); and its external threats (e.g. the number of attempted and successful cyber-attacks). You then give each one of these categories a risk level ranging from lowest to highest risk faced by your credit union. continue reading » 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
