BIG BIG OUTRAGE IN JAMAICA: Man accused of impregnating teen three times charged.... She is currently pregnant with her third child for the accused, who is believed to be in his early 50s.

BY KIMONE FRANCIS Observer staff reporter francisk@jamaicaobserver.com  Monday, August 14, 2017

THE police unit responsible for investigating sexual and other abuses of children have arrested and charged a man accused of impregnating a teenage girl in the Lawrence Tavern community of St Andrew.
The accused was charged by officers assigned to the Centre For Investigation Of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) with having sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16 years.
On Friday, Detective Inspector Anderson at the unit told the Jamaica Observer that the man was granted bail, but that it was not known if he had taken up the offer.
He made his first court appearance on July 14 after being arrested in June. He is to return to court on September 13.
The Observer first reported the story on June 12 after the aunt of the teen disclosed that she had been impregnated by the man at the age of 14.
The woman also said her niece was forced to lie about her age whenever she visited the clinic. She is currently pregnant with her third child for the accused, who is believed to be in his early 50s.
“She tell them she was 17, which was not true, and now she is pregnant again for him at 17, but a tell people she a 21. She not even giving dem her real name, so you know that child won't even have her right name on the birth certificate. I tell my sister to leave but she said she not moving to country. So that is the result,” the woman told the Observer in June. CISOCA was contacted by the Observer about the matter, an investigation was launched and the man taken into custody.
Anderson, however, pointed out that the outcome of the case is dependent on whether or not the victim is willing to cooperate with the police.
“She is his babymother, so I don't know which way the halls of justice will swing. Oftentimes when you have cases like this, it's all dependent on the complainant. Every action that police take is dependent on how interested the complainants are,” Anderson said.
The teen's mother, who, it is alleged, was aware of her abuse, has since fled the community, fearing that she, too, could be arrested and charged by the police.
“She say me bring down problems inna her life and she don't talk to me now. She leave too, because she don't want dem lock her up,” the aunt told the Observer.
She said her sister hadIn the meantime, the woman is to receive a two-bedroom house after she was forced to flee the community after the accused in the aforementioned case and his cronies allegedly issued death and rape threats to her and her 13-year-old daughter.
The mother of 10 had shared with the Observer in June that the accused and self-proclaimed area don allegedly attempted to sexually groom her child who was only nine years old at the time. She said the incident was reported to the police, which resulted in a court case. The woman said nothing came of the case, which was followed by consistent threats from men in the area who are said to be a part of this so-called don's entourage. insisted that she was not willing to report the matter, which she believed would've disrupted her life.  more

MIKE PENCE WHINES ABOUT THE MEDIA AFTER C’VILLE.... Pence Defends Trump, Slams Media Over Charlottesville Response. Trump Loves The KKK. Trump Expected To Speak Today on Charlottesville Attack...Little Too Late.

President Donald Trump is coming under fire for his initial refusal to specifically condemn white supremacists. Even members of his own party are calling him out for his tepid response to the violence in Charlottesville. 
But at least one key Republican remains firmly in his corner. 
On Sunday night, Vice President Mike Pence condemned the violence in Virginia, praised Trump’s response to the situation, then slammed the media for its reaction to the president’s statement blaming “many sides” instead of white supremacists.
We have no tolerance for hate and violence, white supremacists or neo-Nazis or the KKK,” Pence said, according to The Hill. He said Trump “clearly and unambiguously” condemned the violence. Pence, who is currently in Colombia, also took aim at the press for raising questions about Trump’s response after the president not only refused to condemn the neo-Nazis and KKK on Saturday but walked out when reporters asked about white nationalists
“I take issue with the fact that many in the national media spent more time criticizing the president’s words than they did criticizing those that perpetuated the violence to begin with,” Pence was quoted as saying.
However, the issue wasn’t just raised by the media. 
The white supremacists themselves were heartened by Trump’s response, with one neo-Nazi website praising it as “really, really good.” 
The White House later issued a second statement about Charlottesville on Sunday that condemned “all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred” and specifically mentioned ”white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups.”
That statement was attributed to a spokesperson and not to Trump himself.

Could a green sponge hold cancer-fighting secrets?

Sunday, July 30, 2017

WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — A small green sponge, discovered in the dark, icy waters of the Pacific off Alaska, could be the first effective weapon against pancreatic cancer, researchers said Wednesday.
Pancreatic cancer, with particularly aggressive tumours, is notoriously difficult to treat.
“One would never have imagined looking at this sponge that it could be miraculous,” Bob Stone, a researcher at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center, said in a briefing by phone.
Stone discovered the sponge, dull in colour, called “Latrunculia austini” in 2005, while on a seabed exploration expedition in Alaska.
It lives on rocks in patches, at depths of 230-720 feet (70-219m).
Lab testing has shown that several molecules in this sponge selectively destroy pancreatic cancer cells, said Mark Hamann, a University of South Carolina researcher working with Frederick Valeriote of the Henry Ford Cancer Institute in Detroit.
“This is undoubtedly the most active molecule against pancreatic cancer that we see,” said Hamann. “Although there is still much work to be done, it marks the first key step in the discovery and process of developing a treatment,” he said. Pancreatic cancer progresses slowly, a circumstance which leaves patients in a tough position, because late diagnosis means little chance for successful treatment.
Patients' chances of survival at five years for this tumour are only 14 per cent, according to the American Cancer Society.
“I've looked at 5,000 sponge extracts over the last two decades,” Valeriote said. “In terms of this particular pattern of pancreatic and ovarian cancer selective activity, we've only seen one (other) sponge with such activity, and that was one collected many years ago in Indonesia.”
In the United States, 53,670 new cases of pancreatic cancer will be diagnosed in 2017 and more than 43,000 people will die.

OMAR McLEOD WINS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS GOLD FOR JAMAICA — good as gold! McLeod dedicates first gold medal to teammates, country

LONDON, England — Omar McLeod has brought back that sparkle in the eyes of Jamaicans after he struck gold in the men's 110m hurdles at the London Olympic Stadium after the island spectacularly lost the title as the fastest nation on Earth.
Omar McLeod of Jamaica Wins Gold
McLeod gave Jamaica a much-needed psychological boost after both Usain Bolt and Elaine Thompson lost the coveted 100m crowns.
The sprint hurdling king, who won in 13.04 seconds and became only the second man in history, along with American Allen Johnson, to hold the World Indoor, Olympic and World titles simultaneously.
And, even before collecting the medal, McLeod has selflessly dedicated to others.
“I am overcome with emotions. It was a hard race, probably one of the hardest line-ups in history. But I really wanted to bring that spark back in the Jamaican camp,” said a beaming McLeod.
“It was really daunting, and I think it was up to me to really set that momentum again, especially after what happened to Usain Bolt and Elaine (Thompson) and I specially wanted to dedicate this win to Usain Bolt's retirement,” he added.
Omar McLeod of Jamaica Wins Gold
over the 110m hurdles
“I had to do it the Omar McLeod way in order to win (as) I had to dominate from the start and take control of the race. It was a greatly executed race. I have been struggling with my start the whole championships, so I really had to have fun with it, let loose and make it happen,” he explained. Defending champion and Authorised Neutral Athlete (ANA) Sergey Shubenkov was second in 13.14 and he chased McLeod relentlessly, but just failed to match the champion's final burst over the last hurdle.
Bal√°zs Baji of Hungary grabbed bronze in 13.28, while Jamaica's Hansle Parchment was eighth in 13.37 following his usual slow start. He never recovered against a world-class field. Garfield Darien of France was fourth with 13.30, while world record holder Aries Merritt finished fifth in 13.31.
McLeod is the first Jamaican to win the sprint hurdles at the World Championships adding it to his Olympic crown.
“This one is special, honestly. There was a lot of pressure coming in, but I channelled it positively. It's totally different to last year, where we had Usain and Elaine winning, which I used to propel me. I didn't have that this time, so I really wanted to come out and shine my own light,” he noted.
