first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 17, 2016)–Graded stakes winning Toews On Ice heads a field of seven sophomores in Santa Anita’s $75,000 San Pedro Stakes at six furlongs on Sunday. (Originally scheduled for this past Friday, March 11, the San Pedro was cancelled due to heavy rain and re-drawn this morning).TOEWS ON ICE: Trained by Bob Baffert and named for Chicago Blackhawks star center and captain, Jonathan Toews (pronounced TAVES), Toews On Ice was an impressive winner of the Grade III, seven furlong Bob Hope Stakes three starts back on Nov. 14 at Del Mar, but he comes off a disappointing sixth place finish as the 3-5 favorite in the one mile Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn Park Jan. 18.Owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, Toews On Ice, who is Triple Crown nominated, was a close second to his highly regarded stablemate Mor Spirit two starts back in the Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity on Dec. 19. A Kentucky-bred colt by Archarcharch, Toews On Ice has pressed or been on the early lead in all seven of his starts, resulting in three wins and earnings of $245,700.DENMAN’S CALL: Trained by Doug O’Neill, this Kentucky-bred gelding by Northern Afleet has done little wrong in two starts. A stylish 3 ¾ length first-out maiden special weight winner going 5 ½ furlongs here on Jan. 9, Denman’s Call hugged the rail en route to an impressive third place finish behind top Derby contender Nyquist in the Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente Stakes on Feb. 15–an effort that earned him a lofty 94 Beyer Speed figure. Owned by Gilman Racing, Westside or W.C. Racing, Inc., Denman’s Call is also Triple Crown nominated and could use a win in the San Pedro as a springboard to the Derby trail.THE SAN PEDRO STAKES FIELD IN POST POSITION ORDER WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTSRACE 8  Approximate post time, 4:05 p.m. PTMt Veeder – Rafael Bejarano – 120He’s a Tiger – Edwin Maldonado – 120Iron Rob – Stewart Elliot – 120Boldly True – Drayden Van Dyke – 120Denman’s Call – Flavien Prat – 120Toews On Ice – Victor Espinoza – 124Gold Rush Dancer – Gary Stevens – 120last_img read more

first_imgThe male-to-female cross-dressing case was on Wednesday adjourned to October when it was brought before Justice Carl Singh at the Court of Appeal.The case filed by the Guyana Trans United (GTU) with support from the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) and the University of the West Indies Faculties of Law Rights Advocacy Project (U-RAP) sought to strike down laws which left transgenders open to arrest because of cross-dressing.Gulliver McEwan, representatives of SASOD and GTU, first filed the case after then Chief Justice Ian Chang ruled that cross-dressing by men is not a crime as long as they did not do so for an improper purpose.After the ruling, cross-dressers believed that it did not prevent them from being harassed and arrested by police. As such they moved to the Court of Appeal to have Chang’s ruling overturned.However, when the matter was called, the appellants filed their arguments but were told that the State is yet to file theirs.The Appeal Court noted that the arguments filed by counsel for the appellants were extensive and that it wished some time to fully review them and to receive the arguments from the State.During the hearing, justice Singh questioned the validity of SASOD being on the rubric of the appeal, since the organisation was struck out as a party at first instance.However, in response, representing attorney Nigel Hughes stated that the documents would be amended but added that a formal application would be made for SASOD to be joined in the appeal.Commenting on the ruling, McEwen stressed that excluding civil society organisations (CSOs) such as SASOD and GTU would inhibit marginalised persons from being able to access justice.“If civil society groups are not included in the case, then how can we as a community be represented in something that affects us all? This case does not just affect the four individual litigants, it affects us all.”Managing director of SASOD Joel Simpson posited that Caribbean courts have taken a very restrictive approach to the standing of organisations, which he finds untenable.He added that it is particularly important for advancing human rights in Guyana, where individuals are often stigmatised, re-victimised and face amplified risks to their safety and security when challenging the state to respect the rights of a minority group.last_img read more

first_img“This crew, in particular, has always been an ardent supporter of education. A science center would certainly be a fitting tribute to their legacy,” said Dr. Jon Clark, an ex-NASA flight surgeon and widower of astronaut Laurel Blair Salton Clark. A ceremonial groundbreaking for the Columbia Memorial Space Science & Learning Center was scheduled for today. The site for the $12 million center, paid for by NASA and the city, was chosen by a congressional resolution in 2004. It’s expected to open in summer 2008. Design plans reveal a futuristic-looking, two-story building nestled in a 13-acre park on the former site that has since been redeveloped into a shopping center, movie studio and medical complex. The facade will be made of steel, glass and aluminum to invoke the feeling of openness. “The goal is to give the impression of space and the space shuttle,” said Alex Guerrero, executive vice president of Tower General Contractors, which is building the science center. Interactive exhibits are planned including a simulated space mission and a Mars robotic lab. DOWNEY – For decades, engineers worked behind the gates of a sprawling plant in this blue-collar city, designing and building parts for America’s space program, including the shuttle Columbia. The 160-acre complex closed in 1999 and with it, the city’s reputation as an aerospace hub. Now the city is reclaiming its aerospace past by converting part of the site into a memorial and the first education center dedicated to the 2003 Columbia disaster that killed seven astronauts. The Columbia families say it’s appropriate because the astronauts spent 16 days in orbit conducting science experiments. Shuttle flights since have focused on finishing construction of the international space station. Columbia broke apart during re-entry on Feb. 1, 2003, raining debris over Texas and Louisiana. Investigators determined its left wing was gashed by fuel-tank foam insulation during liftoff, allowing fiery gases to penetrate the shuttle. The Downey complex opened in 1929 and was primarily involved in aircraft manufacturing and missile design. During the space race, it played a key role in development of the Apollo program and later, the space shuttle fleet.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

After the meeting, Hunter agreed to drop the language, House and Senate officials said. Hunter’s spokesman had no immediate comment. Santa Rosa Island is the second-largest of the five islands that make up Channel Islands National Park. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee abandoned a plan to give the military recreational use of 53,000-acre Santa Rosa Island after senators warned him Friday that the provision could trip up a major defense bill. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., instead agreed to a deal offered by House Democrats to pursue the idea as stand-alone legislation after Congress reconvenes next year. His agreement cleared a final glitch for House and Senate negotiators putting the finishing touches on a defense policy bill lawmakers want to use to ban cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of terrorism detainees in U.S. custody. Hunter wanted to turn Santa Rosa Island, 40 miles off the coast of Santa Barbara County, into a recreation destination for disabled veterans and others. His proposal would have allowed hunting of nonnative elk and deer on the island to continue indefinitely, even though a court-ordered settlement calls for it to end in 2011. Environmentalist say the animals are harming the island’s natural environment and native species, and also were concerned Hunter’s plan would have amounted to putting the island under military control and keeping the public out. last_img read more
