Former Apopka City Administrator Named in Hit-and-Run Lawsuit

first_img May 22, 2016 at 5:42 am Richard Anderson, the former City Administrator and current consultant/lobbyist for The City of Apopka, is being sued by Michael Falcon, the victim of a hit-and-run crash on April 5, 2016. In the complaint filed in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court for Lake County on April 19th, Falcon alleges that Anderson was the owner of the truck that collided with his car, and was also the driver of the vehicle.The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed that Anderson is a person of interest in that hit-and-run crash last month, which injured Falcon to the extent that he was airlifted to the Orlando Regional Medical Center.“The only person of interest in this hit-and-run investigation is the owner of the truck,” said Sergeant Kim Montes, Public Affairs Officer for The Florida Highway Patrol.The FHP Motor Vehicle Accident Report states Anderson’s truck was going the wrong way at 1:30 a.m. on April 5th and crashed into Falcon’s car.The FHP said it’s trying to identify who was behind the wheel of Anderson’s black Dodge Ram truck when it crashed head-on into Falcon’s gray Toyota Corolla in Lake County road last month.In FHP’s report, witnesses who stopped at the scene said the truck’s driver “…possibly could have been a male with white hair and glasses who was seen walking around the crash scene talking on a cellphone and then left in an unknown direction.”Montes went on to say that Anderson was contacted about the incident and did not provide information as to who was driving the vehicle at the time of the hit-and-run. The investigation remains open according to Montes.Anderson’s Dodge Ram was left behind at the crash scene.Falcon and his wife are suing Anderson, accusing him of being behind the wheel.The lawsuit states:Anderson was the owner of a 2014 Dodge Ram. On April 5th, 2016, at or about 1:30 a.m., while operating the subject vehicle, Anderson was traveling on State Road 46, in Lake County, Florida. At or about that same time and place, Michael Falcon was operating a 2007 Toyota Corolla traveling in the opposite direction as Anderson on State Road 46 in Lake County, Florida. Anderson veered into Falcon’s lane of travel, striking his vehicle head-on at a high rate of speed.The lawsuit goes on to say that Falcon suffered serious and permanent injuries as a result of the collision, and that Anderson negligently operated or maintained his vehicle so that it collided with Falcon’s, and as a direct and proximate result of the negligence, Falcon suffered bodily injury, and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical nursing care and treatment, loss of earnings, loss of ability to earn money, and aggravation of a previously existing condition. The losses are permanent or continuing and plaintiff will suffer the losses in the future. Bill Frodl Please enter your comment!

Anti-vaccination mothers have outsized voice on social media – pro-vaccination parents…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Brooke W. McKeever, University of South Carolina and Robert McKeever, University of South CarolinaA high school student from Ohio made national headlines recently by getting inoculated despite his family’s anti-vaccination beliefs.Ethan Lindenberger, 18, who never had been vaccinated, had begun to question his parents’ decision not to immunize him. He went online to research and ask questions, posting to Reddit, a social discussion website, about how to be vaccinated. His online quest went viral.In March 2019, he was invited to testify before a U.S. Senate Committee hearing on vaccines and preventable disease outbreaks. In his testimony, he said that his mother’s refusal to vaccinate him was informed partly by her online research and the misinformation about vaccines she found on the web.Lindenberger’s mother is hardly alone. Public health experts have blamed online anti-vaccination discussions in part for New York’s worst measles outbreak in 30 years. Anti-vaccine activists also have been cited for the growth of anti-vaccination sentiments in the U.S. and abroad.We are associate professors who study health communication. We are also parents who read online vaccination-related posts, and we decided to conduct research to better understand people’s communication behaviors related to childhood vaccinations. Our research examined the voices most central to this discussion online, mothers, and our findings show that those who oppose vaccinations communicate most about this issue.What prompts mothers to speak outA strong majority of parents in the U.S. support vaccinations, yet at the same time, anti-vaccination rates in the U.S. and globally are rising. The World Health Organization identified the reluctance or refusal to vaccinate despite the availability of vaccines as one of 10 top threats to global health in 2019.Mothers are critical decision-makers in determining whether their children should be vaccinated. In our study, we surveyed 455 mothers online to determine who communicates most about vaccinations and why.In general, previous research has shown that people evaluate opinion climates – what the majority opinion seems to say – before expressing their own ideas about issues. This is true particularly on controversial subjects such as affirmative action, abortion or immigration. If an individual perceives their opinion to be unpopular, they may be less likely to say what they think, especially if an issue receives a lot of media attention, a phenomenon known as the spiral of silence.If individuals, however, have strong beliefs about an issue, they may express their opinions whether they are commonly held or minority perspectives. These views can dominate conversations as others online find support for their views and join in.Our recent study found that mothers who contributed information online shared several perspectives. Mothers who didn’t strongly support childhood vaccinations were more likely to seek, pay attention to, forward information and speak out about the issue – compared to those who do support childhood vaccinations.Those who believed that vaccinations were an important issue (whether they were for or against them) were more likely to express an opinion. And those who opposed vaccinations were more likely to post their beliefs online.Ethan Lindenberger testifies before a congressional committee about his decision to be vaccinated against his family’s wishes.AP Photo/Carolyn KasterHow social media skews factsOnline news content can be influenced by social media information that millions of people read, and it can amplify minority opinions and health myths. For example, Twitter and Reddit posts related to the vaccine-autism myth can drive news coverage.Those who expressed online opinions about vaccinations also drove news coverage. Other research we co-authored shows that posts related to the vaccine-autism myth were followed by online news stories related to tweets in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.Recent reports about social media sites, such as Facebook, trying to interrupt false health information from spreading can help correct public misinformation. However, it is unclear what types of communication will counter misinformation and myths that are repeated and reinforced online.Countering skepticismOur work suggests that those who agree with the scientific facts about vaccination may not feel the need to pay attention to this issue or voice their opinions online. They likely already have made up their minds and vaccinated their children.But from a health communication perspective, it is important that parents who support vaccination voice their opinions and experiences, particularly in online environments.Studies show that how much parents trust or distrust doctors, scientists or the government influences where they land in the vaccination debate. Perspectives of other parents also provide a convincing narrative to understand the risks and benefits of vaccination.Scientific facts and messaging about vaccines, such as information from organizations like the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are important in the immunization debate.But research demonstrates that social consensus, informed in part by peers and other parents, is also an effective element in conversations that shape decisions.If mothers or parents who oppose or question vaccinations continue to communicate, while those who support vaccinations remain silent, a false consensus may grow. This could result in more parents believing that a reluctance to vaccinate children is the norm – not the exception.[ Expertise in your inbox.

Orange County Animal Services Wait ‘Til 8 Program Saves over 160…

first_img The Anatomy of Fear From the Orange County NewsroomOrange County Animal Services launched its Wait ‘Til 8 program, where citizens are empowered and provided the tools to care for underage kittens in their home until the kittens are old enough (eight weeks) to return for sterilization and adoption. More than 60 Orange County citizens have participated in the program with over 160 kitten lives saved.“Many residents are unaware of the staggering volume of abandoned kittens the shelter receives throughout the summer months – sometimes dozens in a single day,” said Diane Summers, manager of Orange County Animal Services. “It’s a problem that we as a community can solve if we work together and this program will be key. Kindness for Cats, Inc. and shelter staff have united to launch Wait ‘Til 8 and provide motivated residents an easy way to save lives. It has proven successful in its pilot stage and I’m eager to see the continued impact now that it is fully unleashed.”Due to the year-round Florida warm weather, kitten season is close to lasting all year long. Cats start reproducing and continue to have several litters. During this time, Orange County Animal Services experiences a massive influx of intakes of kittens and mother cats. Underage kittens without their mothers are at high-risk when brought into shelters due to the vulnerability of their health. This is where the Wait ‘Til 8 program begins to help save the lives of underage kittens.“As a long-time foster parent I’ve learned how important it is to provide a safe home environment for underage kittens to thrive,” said Cindy Patton, founder of Kindness For Cats, Inc. “I also realized that many community members want to help when they find kittens in need but often are not sure how to go about it. The Wait ‘Til 8 program empowers concerned citizens by giving them guidance and resources to not only care for kittens but also to network to find adopters for the kitties once they are old enough to be spayed/neutered.”Learn more about the Orange County Animal Services Wait ‘Til 8 program.Share your Wait ‘Til 8 story, please tag Orange County Animal Services and #OCASWT8!

Spears & Dumps galore – Falcons vs Western Province

first_imgWednesday Jul 23, 2008 Spears & Dumps galore – Falcons vs Western Province Western Province have once again fallen at the hands of a so called minnow of South Africas Currie Cup, this time losing 38-32 in nice try thriller in Brakpan on the weekend. The Gauteng Falcons claimed the scalp of the boys from Cape Town to record a famous victory for a small union who were very much the underdogs in this one.Province were looking for an improved performance after their loss to Griquaslast weekend, but once again disappointed as the game went to the side who showed the greater heart on the night.The Falcons, commonly known as the Valke, have impressed many with their exciting brand of rugby so far this season. The expansive aspect of the game was matched by the physical though, as we saw hits flying in from all angles.The game produced two yellow cards and one red, all of which are possibly up for discussion.The first yellow went to Ross Skeate, who last week was on the receiving end of a few crunching hitshimself. Skeates tackle this week was a bit of a Brad Thorn, picking up and tossing the player to ground rather than spearing or bringing him back down safely.Next we saw a red card for Johan Swartz, the Valke winger who picked up little Gio Aplonand flipped him around before slamming him into the ground. The tackle was possibly based on momentum, and was similar to Paul Emericks tackle on Olly Barkleyin the World Cup last year. Swartz got his marching orders, and Aplon, despite looking badly injured at once stage, got up and carried on showing no signs of bodily harm.Once the standard had been set, referee Marius Jonker, along with his touch judges, made a point of being consistent, so when young Francois Louw made a tackle that closely resembled a spear, he promptly got his marching orders and spent ten minutes in the cooler himself.So in summary, 70 points, two yellows, one red, and a whole bunch of big hits and running footy on display. Just a regular night of Currie Cup rugby really. Over to you: What are your thoughts on the tackles that were carded? Its a nice example for us to examine and compare three supposed spear/dangerous tackles from the same game with the same ref. Were all of them dealt with accurately, or did you think that the Valke were hard done by with their red, when Western Province only got yellows? :: Related Posts :: Ross Skeate smashed twice by Heinrich Stride Time: 04:35ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Let’s get Rugby in the Olympics

first_imgTuesday Aug 12, 2008 Let’s get Rugby in the Olympics With the eyes of the world currently on Beijing, it makes one wonder just what kind of exposure and growth could be achieved if Rugby were on display. Having the top players of your country having a crack at Gold would be fantastic. The IRB are calling out to all players and supporters to spread the message that Rugby needs to be re-included in the Olympic movement, with Sevens being perfectly suited to it.While there has been an abundance of criticism for the IRB of late, namely around the ELV discussions, this Olympic drive is sure to get the support of every rugby fan, with the mutual love of the game being the driving factor behind us contributing to getting Rugby on a greater world stage.Sevens is the fastest growing form of the game, with 32 National Teams taking place in the IRB Sevens World Series this year, 2008. All you have to do is watch one leg of the World Series and you will be amazed at the teams that are on display, and the quality they provide. It’s the game for all, and is the ultimate stepping stone towards accelerated growth and popularity of truly global proportions.Since 1924, when the USA won the Gold Medal, we haven’t seen Rugby in the Olympics. Now is the time to change all that, as the IOC are committed to having 28 sports in the 2016 Olympics. Rugby is on a shortlist that includes softball, karate, golf and roller sports. Rugby’s merits for inclusion in terms of its Olympic history and its reach as a global sport are obvious.Rugby World Cup is the pinnacle for Fifteens. Olympic inclusion would mean that Sevens ultimate stage would be the Olympic Games.The IOC will vote on which sports to include in the Olympic Games in Copenhagen, Denmark in October 2009. To assist in the IRBs ambition of getting Sevens back in the Olympics by 2016, you can go to http://www.2009congress.olympic.organd Register there to give your feedback. For more information about the drive, and if you have trouble registering on the IOC site, the IRB has provided instructions here.

first_imgThursday Sep 2, 2010 Jongi Nokwe finishes off nice Cheetahs team try vs Western Province Despite an early start to the Currie Cup, Western Province have now lost two on the trot, first to the Sharks, and then this past weekend going down 29-24 to the Cheetahs. It was a good win for the visitors, with this try being the best from the match at Newlands in Cape Town.This week there wont be a best tries mix from the Currie Cup as in all honesty, there werent that many amazing tries scored. I figured this was the best from this particular match though, as it had some wonderful handling and support play from all the guys involved.The Cheetahs put pressure on WP all night with their rush defence, and as you can see here, the policy of staying in their faces reaped rewards.“It was special, especially because it was at Newlands,” said coach Naka Drotske.“Weve lost matches this season this season that we could have won so Im very glad were pulled this one through. Discipline was important, and it was something we knew because they have a kicker like Willem de Waal.”A Frikkie Welsh fumble allowed Sevens star Robert Ebersohn to draw in a couple of tacklers and free up Meyer Bosman, who combined nicely with Kabamba Floors (pictured above) before the support arrived, eventually allowing rapid winger Jongi Nokwe to stroll over for a neatly taken try.

The Top 5 Rugby Magicians of All Time

first_imgFriday Apr 18, 2014 The Top 5 Rugby Magicians of All Time Rugby HQ in Australia have put together their Top 5 list of the best ever magicians on the rugby field. While it’s obviously subjective, it’s a solid list and it would be tough to disagree with their top three selections, and number one in particular.Starting at number five, Joe Rokocoko was a lethal finisher for the Blues and All Blacks. His dazzling feet and ability to beat defenders when in space made him a top try scorer. He could create tries out of half chances, as can be seen here. Sorry, Brent Russell.Welsh legend Gareth Edwards is probably best known these days for that try he scored for the Barbarians against the All Blacks in 1973, but for years he terrorised defences and to many up north in particular, is the best scrumhalf to ever play the game.Having met the great David Campese recently, it’s great to see him at three on this list. Campo could pull off the impossible, and is of course the man that made the goose-step so famous. His jinking runs and ball skills were unmatched in his generation.“I always wanted to do something different. I could have stood on the wing and did nothing, or go out there and try and express yourself, and that’s what I decided to do,” he once said.The only guy on the list still playing Test rugby, Quade Cooper is a natural fit when it comes to thinking of players that can do the seemingly impossible on the rugby field. Some of his best bits aren’t shown in this clip, but you can see a few in the Related Posts below this article.In the end, there can be only one and that man is without a doubt King Carlos Spencer. The only player who has come close since is Cooper, but for those of us who watched Spencer in his heyday, he will always be remembered as the most audacious, enthralling entertainer.As with Cooper, have a browse of our Related Posts to see some of Spencer’s best moments, which obviously weren’t able to be featured in this compilation but are posted in our archive.Other notable mentions, and players who could have squeezed into the top five somewhere, would be Brian O’Driscoll, Shane Williams, Christian Cullen and Waisale Serevi. O’Driscoll has already been featured in his own Top 5 video though, and Serevi was a Sevens star.How different would your ‘Top 5 Magicians’ be, or are you happy with the choices? ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Top 5 compilations Related Articles 240 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 Biggest Hits of the Year 242 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 BLOOPERS of the Year! 244 WEEKS AGO Powerful Top 5 ‘Tongan Thor’ moments From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Matthew Rees facing lengthy ban after red card for vicious stamp on Nick Easter’s face

first_imgTuesday Nov 24, 2015 Matthew Rees facing lengthy ban after red card for vicious stamp on Nick Easter’s face Cardiff Blues hooker Matthew Rees will face a disciplinary hearing in London tomorrow (Wednesday 25 November) following the straight red card he received for stamping on the face of Harlequins number eight Nick Easter in round two of the European Challenge Cup. Replacement hooker Rees was sent off after Easter brought it to the referee’s attention, following a stamp that came very close, but due to good luck more than anything, didn’t take out his eye.Referee Alexandre Ruiz was clear in his decision, sending the former Wales captain from the park.Blues coach Danny Wilson felt there was no maliciousness meant though, saying it was accidental.“There’s definitely no malice in it. It looks possibly like a clumsy situation,” said Wilson. “Matthew is not that type of player. He’s a very diligent professional with an extremely positive record behind him, which hopefully will go with him when it’s discussed.Law 10.4 (b) Stamping/Trampling on an Opponent carries the following sanction entry points – Low End: 2 weeks; Mid-Range: 5 weeks; Top End: 9 to 52 weeks.Replays showed that Easter was very lucky to not be badly injured, as Rees’ stud came extremely close to damaging his eye. We’ve seen less dangerous eye-gouges be punished severely, so you can be sure that 34-year-old Rees could face at least 5 weeks on the sideline.London Irish scrumhalf Brendan McKibbin was recently banned for three weeks for a similar, albeit slightly less dangerous, offence.Easter tweeted after the match that his eye is fine, and thanked fans for the messages of concern.Harlequins picked up a 32-20 bonus point win to move to the top of Pool 3.UPDATE: Rees has been suspended for seven weeks.“In upholding the red card decision, the Judicial Officer found that Rees had stamped on Nick Easter and determined that the offence was at the top end of World Rugby’s sanctions and selected 12 weeks as the appropriate entry point,” the EPCR statement read. “He then reduced the sanction by five weeks taking into account Rees’s guilty plea, timely expression of remorse to Easter and clean disciplinary record, before imposing a suspension of seven weeks.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
