Cal gov declares state of emergency in SD County

ESCONDIDO, Calif. Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a state of emergency in San Diego County following the discovery of what police called a virtual bomb factory in an Escondido area home.

Under the declaration Wednesday, the California Emergency Management Agency will coordinate efforts of all state agencies and adidas botasky provide assistance to San Diego County to remove the hazardous materials.

Sheriff Bill Gore showed slides on Tuesday showing the cluttered home full of explosive powders in jars and clumps on the floor.

In a Nov. 22 jail interview with an FBI agent and sheriff’s detective, George Djura Jakubec admitted to robbing three Bank of America branches in San Diego in November 2009 and June and July of this year, a search warrant affidavit said.

He also admitted to attempting to rob a fourth Bank of America branch in November of last year, the warrant said.

Jakubec, adidas supravy 54, has pleaded not guilty to 26 counts of manufacturing or possessing explosives and two counts of bank robbery.

According to the search warrant, items seized from the house included sulfuric acid, nitric acid and hydrochloric acid. Two handguns, a .22 caliber Ruger and a Glock 19, also were taken, along with a blue Escondido police shirt.

Hear Sam Smith Break Down His Bond Theme

« I tried to put myself in the shoes of Bond, » Smith explains. « My music is a diary and it’s a recap of my life, and I wanted to bring that kind of honesty. In the lyrics « How do I live, adidas obuv pánska how do I breathe? / When you’re not here I’m suffocating » I wanted a touch of vulnerability from Bond, where you see into his heart a little bit. »

Smith says the song came together in one whirlwind session. He and collaborator Jimmy Napes wrote it in under half an hour and quickly recorded a demo. When they listened back to that recording, they were so pleased with Smith’s vocal performance that they ended up using it on the final release albeit with some added muscle in the arrangement.

« When it goes into the chorus, it’s massive and then I wanted it to sound like all the air was being sucked out of the song really quickly as it goes into ‘How do I live, how do I breathe?’ And then, it slowly raises again in that last moment to the final explosion, leaving it to the orchestra to then take it away, » he says.

Though he’s longed for years to be the voice crooning over one of those iconic title sequences, adidas maniaadidas outlet Smith says someone else in his life might be even more excited: adidas tenisky His uncle Terry, who was diagnosed with brain damage at birth, is also a James Bond superfan.

« He’s got every single poster, every single figurine, » Smith says. « I just thought, how incredible that would be for him, and for the family and stuff, to do that theme song. It would be amazing. I’m not sure he even knows yet that I’m properly doing it. But I’m gonna bring him to the premiere. »

How to cure Plantar Warts aka Foot Warts

their plantar wart with a Combination Method of DUCT TAPE and an application of SALICYLIC ACID, (aspirin) which is an acid found in many over the counter wart bandages to speed up the process.

The best

method for fast removal of a Plantar wart/Foot wart is the following:

1) Soak foot in warm, soapy water for 15 minutes as warm as possible without becoming hot. Note: Be careful with children, not to make the water too hot. Test the water prior to soaking childs foot.

2) Dry foot thoroughly, using towel and hairdryer to get the foot and toes completely dry. Use a hair dryer so that you dry the foot and toes completely. Do not put the dryer setting on hot, but rather on warm or keep the dryer a distance of 10 inches or adidas zx flux more in order to apply a warm temperature to dry the whole foot. (This will also help the tape stick to the skin)Apply Salicylic acid in the form of paste or preferably a band aid type

patch with thick pad which helps to keep some pressure off wart when standing or walking, Use a patch such as those commonly found in pharmacy. (there are many products, but the one used in this method was the one that has been around for many years.

The acid will deteriorate and render the healthy skin tender, this is

not desired and adidas com originals may cause an additional problem.

4) Cover the salicylic acid pad

with duct tape cut to size. The duct tape should be cut just enough to

cover the wart with salicylic patch, with enough tape left around the

edges so it can stick to the unaffected skin. Use this for the first 48 hours and then remove the duct tape and acid patch. During this 48 hours, the acid will begin to kill the virus and the duct tape will keep air out. After this 48 hours, soak the foot in warm soapy water, rub the dead skin off wart with emery board, keep bandage and tape off overnight that night. Use either an emery board or pumice stone to gently

rub the dead skin off the top of the wart. With

children use an emery board and rub in one direction, then the opposite

direction if the child does not demonstrate pain, continue until dead skin is gone. Approx 3 minutes of gentle rubbing.

5) Apply the duct tape now without the salicylic acid patch. Press the

tape so that it sticks to the skin to secure it well enough to stay in

place, thus cutting off the air to the wart. Without oxygen,

the virus will sufficate and not be able to continue growth. Since the acid has started the deterioration of the wart, the duct tape will

s shortage of skilled tradespeople

We need to tie industry needs with curriculum development at the post secondary level and change the culture of our K 12 kids to: wanting to enter these quality professions!

Better trades options in high school for non academic focused/skilled students so they can be integrated /enter the labor force immediately after graduation is long overdue. This would reduce time lag for those students /persons wanting to become trades people and it would reduce red tape/ bureaucratic delays for those trying to access apprenticeships. Presently many persons wanting to work in the trades are unable to access such employment in order to get limited apprenticeships as they must be sponsored by a ticketed tradesperson. Networking is crucial. Conversely, other students without fulfilling work hours requirements manage to slide into various trades program seats because someone signs off on their hours for them. And of course competition with foreigners for positions complicates the issue further. Canada wide we have geographic areas where there exist employment (specifically in labor and trades) shortages (ie. east and maritime),while other areas are labor rich but lacking manpower (ie. northern BC/AB). There is no excuse for Canadians to be jobless (other than in/visble illness/disability) and government needs to focus on employing Canadians for a change.

Years ago BC had a good trades apprenticeship program. In Benett haste to destroy trade unions he effectively wiped out the apprenticeship program A nation that can not be bothered to train its own workers should not raid the supply in other countries. All employers need to do to attract workers here is pay an appropriate wage, foreign workers will quickly learn many employers are not paying the appropriate wage for Canada. Ryder Victoria

We need the good unions that are actually left in BC to train our own people. There are so many willing young people here that would love a chance to be trained. Why is there a shortage of apprenticeship programs in BC for Canadians? It needs to change.

We need to make it easier for young people to aquire skills and we need to change the attitude in schools that trades are for dumb kids who dont qualify for technical jobs. We also need to teach young people better values. Many young people today are looking for jobs with all the benefits and easy money instead of jobs that teach them portable skills. When I was growing up young people started at the bottom first and worked their way up aquiring the skills along the way by working beside skilled people. Today our highly educated young people want to start in the middle or near the top from the get go and dont want to pay the dues of learning by watching skilled people at work. I was and still am happy to learn anything new knowing that if I learn principles they will apply in any field of endeavour.

I think you really got to ask, why are people avoiding the trades in the first place? What going on? Peel the onion back, find out the answer and fix it.

Same old, same old, our ass kissing for votes politicians and our screwed up education system training computer experts and supposed rocket scientists when they should be training carpenters, plumbers and electricians etc who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty.

There is but one solution make it impossible for the eco nuts to stop the development of OUR resources! If that isn’t enough, force Ottawa to stop allowing the Natives to blockade our right to oil and it’s transportation and we’ll put honest folks back to work. In the 1960’s the mining industry was hiring Irish workers but back then the country was open to resource development until the NDP got in Today it’s not the NDP, they were handed their butt on a no confidence platter but rather Ottawa’s catering to the every whim and demand of the Natives so hire away from wherever, we need people who want to work, not fight work and take government handouts instead!

With today technology it seems no one wants to do skilled trades which involve physical labour or thinking for that matter. There must be a stronger incentive for young people to get into these trades.

We have all kinds of political rhetoric about mega projects but then fail to train our own citizens to fill those jobs. It makes no sense at all. On the other hand we hear about thousands of non skilled workers being imported to fill jobs like nannys and restaurant personnel when the real fact is that employers don want to pay living wages to our oun entry level kids. Something is quite wrong. It seems that the rich always win.

Wether the imported tradespeople come from Ireland, Iceland or even Iraq doesn matter. If they have the skills and they are willing to work then there a paid job waiting for them in BC and it would help if more people enrolled in recognized training programs since employment is almost guaranteed upon completion.

There are far to many Students enrolled in Soft diploma and degree Educate the kids when in highschool, if you want a plus $100,000 a year job right out of college learn a skill, Electrician, Welder,Pipe fitters,Steel Worker, Carpenter, Equipment operator/ Truck Driver, Millwright. Decrease funding to those soft degree and diploma divert funding to skills training so there is no waiting list what so ever for Skills training. Right now its a problem when our youth have to wait over a year to get into these courses. N drivers licence is also a problem for our BC youth hoping to get into job requiring full drivers license. Allow kids who have taken professional drivers course, adidas obuv pánska skid control, collision avoidance, defensive driving to take road test for full licence since they are now better drivers than majority of drivers in BC who have learnt only by trial and error.

What needs to be done about BC shortage of skilled tradespeople is to get rid of the LIBERAL GOVERNMENT they are the ones who have been systematically dismanteling the apprenticeship programmes in BC.

I am glad that they are bringing in people from the Commonwealth, the fact that they speak English should be a huge savings for Canadian taxpayers. How do we know we are short of skilled workers? All the young people I talk to say it is really hard to get work. How many people can take a trade when they are on EI? I do not think this country is doing enough (if anything at all) to get our Canadian young people in the workplace

The Provincial government could focus on providing trades apprenticeship programs in BC, like Ireland has, and help subsidize education costs for students interested in trades; which likely will encourage more applicants.

Societies establish and fund to produce workers. If there is a doctor shortage, causing salaries to go sky high, let the factory (medical school) produce more doctors to get the extortionist wages down; if there is a shortage of trades workers, ramp up the producing the trades. Responsibility for this belongs to government, so that where the blame for mis planning rests.

Training costs so much money that most people can afford to go to school to get it. If school and training for the trades were more accessible then more people would go into the trades. It always been a big problem for people looking for work want people people can get the with experience. Employers need to be more willing to train people on the job.

We should re instate the accredited apprentiship program we used to have. If we can be bothered to train our own people, what else can we do but find them elsewhere? But, of course, in the meantime, our young people are idle and unemployed Kirkpatrick, Abbotsford

Sponsorship for trades training and apprenticeship jobs might help. Unemployed young people and others working in minimum wage jobs, as well as a few university students might reconsider their options if given an opportunity.

The cost of going to school must be drastically cut. At least by 50%.

Unfortunately there is no immediate opportunity to solve the problem. The shortage of trained labour probably results from long standing shortages in « seats » for non union workers. Organized workers and their training has been part of the union worker/union company dominance. As a result unions do have workers to fill some of the available union positions; non union companies have only the non union, sometimes not so well trained, labour pool to draw on and it is fragmented. Regular citizens and employers who decry unionism and view a union as a hindrance to their right to work need to rethink this outlook. Non union management views unions as « scalpers » who want to usurp management rights. In my experience, as an employer of both union and non union employees, adidas obuv bazar (I’m now retired by the way), I learned that union business agents and union management were their own worst enemies. Instead of fighting each other, far better they should promote the benefits of union membership, adidas supravy union member skills, union hiring, and union contracting. Non union employers have the right to exist but in many instances, the non union crews are not as well trained. Times need to change! In the mean time, hire from out of the country if necessary, but the government needs to have stringent guidelines governing hours of work, wages, benefits and on going training.

Why import labour? Why not get rid of the tens of thousands of unnecessary government jobs and encourage those subsequently unemployed to retrain to do something USEFUL instead?!

Stop building stuff. or don allow foreign workers to come here to stem the rate of growth. rate of build. This is cyclic, with the pace of development, possibly unsustainable, if we constantly trained for this need now, it possible our workers are going to be as unemployed after these projects are done as those Irish trained for Irelands unsustained development and now coming here for work When over, send back to Ireland to be unemployed again. Maybe there room for our workers to replace them as trained at our current pace, otherwise no sense in getting too worked up about not having the workers available now or more training capacity for something that might not exist in the future or start to accommodate for more possible capacity.

Van de Meeberg, Vancouver, No longer employable for things to happen but make things to become reality ! So get the unemployed and give then a skill and aptitude test and then set them up in trade schools for plummer carpenter welder fitter so on and then make sure they get proper jobs after finished training.

No matter if government chooses to focus on resource sector development, a green economy or skills development, or all three a prosperous British Columbia requires strong labour force participation and parents of young children need access to affordable, quality child care if they are to be part of that prosperity. No sense having a Jobs Plan, or trying to get more women trained as skilled workers until BC has an affordable child care system like the $10/day Plan.

The reason we have a shortage is because Industry has steadfastly refused to train people as they feared they would seek employment elsewhere. Until the Government and Industry can come together on a plan it will continue to be a problem.

Meh. I’m all in favour of more Irishmen in Canada.

There are a lot of people unemployed that would love the chance for training to full fill this. I am speaking of people who are middle aged not high school, but people who have lost their jobs and need to start over again. This would be a win, win situation.

We need to be more proactive and visionary in anticipating our skills needs. Nurses, teachers have preceded this shortage and we haven’t learned. Prepare students in elementary school with « What do you want to be when you grow up? » and follow up with yearly career options available so students can plan their academic destination. In high school have pre apprenticeship programs allowing students to attain an upper entry level to their trade upon graduation rather than starting at the bottom. Carrot and the stick still works with enticement being what the $45.00 an hour job will bring compared to the $12.00 choice.

War and hunger

The following is a script of « War and Hunger » which aired on Nov. 30, 2014. Scott Pelley is the correspondent. Nicole Young and Katie Kerbstat, producers.

While we’re giving thanks for the feast this weekend let’s not leave out what may be one of the best ideas that America ever had. It’s called the World Food Programme the emergency first responder to hunger anywhere on the globe. The United Nations launched WFP in 1961 at the urging of the United States. government pays the biggest part of the bill as the World Food Programme feeds 80 million people a year. Its greatest challenges come when it confronts war and hunger. And that’s what’s happening today in Syria where you will find heroes of the World Food Programme saving the most vulnerable people in what looked to us like the edge of oblivion.

The map said, « no man’s land. » We plowed the border of Jordan and Syria where the Jordanian military told us we would find war refugees. But considering the wasteland it seemed more likely the map was right who could survive here?

But after several hours we found them, pouring over the land like a flash flood. With three hundred miles behind them, these Syrian families made their final steps through a war that nearly killed them and a desert that could have finished the job. Watch a moment and listen.

Scott Pelley: This berm marks the border between Syria and Jordan. The refugees that we ran into were coming across the top of the berm and turning themselves in to the safety of Jordanian border officers here. More than a million have crossed into Jordan so far during the three year civil war in Syria.

They had been farmers, shopkeepers, adidas superstar office workers. Now they shared one occupation: saving the children with matted hair and faces covered in ten days of misery. We noticed the little ones around Halima. Turns out she’s the mother of nine.

Scott Pelley: Why did you come?

« There’s bombing all around us, » she said, « I’m afraid for my children. But I don’t know what will become of us now. »

Scott Pelley: You don’t know what’s coming next but you know this must be better than where you came from?

She had taken five of her children. Her husband took four by another route. And they hope to find one another. Halima said they managed to save everyone in her family. But as for the fate of others in her town no translation was needed.

Andrew Harper: This is happening every day. Every day we are getting hundreds of people, sometimes up to a thousand people, fleeing the violence, fleeing the deprivation in Syria and coming across into Jordan.

Andrew Harper is in charge in Jordan for the United Nations high commissioner for refugees.

Scott Pelley: What kind of shape are they in when they come at the end of this journey?

Andrew Harper: It’s horrific. We’re seeing children coming across now without any shoes. Often they’ve only got one pair of clothes, some of them are just wearing their pajamas because, when their places were bombed, adidas obuv dámska they had nothing to grab to leave. camp. There was room for everyone on the trucks but no mother would take that chance. They pressed their children in first. Parents had sacrificed all they had to see this moment. And a long dead emotion began to stir. It felt like hope.

Scott Pelley: You know, this war’s been going on for three years. Why are these people still coming now?

Andrew Harper: Because it’s getting worse. I think now more than ever there is absolutely no hope for the future at the moment in Syria.

Part of what has stolen hope inside Syria is hunger. Starvation is a weapon in the war that began as an uprising against the dictator Bashar al Assad. These words read, « kneel or starve. » Signed Assad’s soldiers. All sides are laying siege to communities and cutting off the food. food convoy broke through. The people had eaten the dogs and the cats and were running low on leaves and grass. This girl eventually starved to death, five miles or so from a supermarket.

Ertharin Cousin: Are we willing to lose a generation of children to hunger? To lack of access to medicines? To lack of access to water while we wait until the fighting stops? No. We can’t.

Ertharin Cousin is executive director of the World Food Programme. She’s a former food industry executive from Chicago. donates more than a third of the four billion dollar annual budget.

Ertharin Cousin: The operation in Syria is one of the largest that we have ever operated in WFP. We have over 3,000 trucks supporting 45,000 metric tons of food delivered every month inside Syria.

Scott Pelley: All of that and your people are getting shot at.

Ertharin Cousin: All of that and people are getting shot at. It’s a war zone. It’s a conflict zone. The world doesn’t stop. The war doesn’t stop. The conflict doesn’t end because people need to eat.

The World Food Programme estimates that more than six million Syrians do not know where their next meal is coming from.

Matthew Hollingworth: These are areas where people have nothing. They really do have nothing.

Matthew Hollingworth heads the World Food Programme mission inside Syria. In February, he led an armored column into the city of Homs, which had been sealed off by the dictatorship for 600 days.

Matthew Hollingworth: People were skin and bones. I could lift a grown man because he’d got to about 40 kilos.

They raised nearly $130,000 and will compete in bobsled at the Olympics for the sixth time.

Keira Knightley topless for adidas maniaadidas outlet Interview Magazine

Keira Knightley is no Rihanna.

She’s not famed for her risqu publicity stunts or her barely there sartorial choices. If anything, she’s a private individual (as far as film stars can be), who shies away from discussing her personal life and is more often seen wearing baggy jeans and an oversized jumper than she is wearing anything that borders on brazen.

Yet the usually conservative actress, with strict rules over her own exposure on film, has chosen to pose completely topless for Interview Magazine, adidas botasky naked but for a pair of wide legged trousers and some three quarter length lacy gloves.

The spread has been shot by fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier for the magazine’s September issue, themed The Photographer’s issue, which is out on newsstands now.

Keira Knightley poses topless for a special September The Photographer’s issue of Interview Magazine, out now

And she is but one of six covers shot by a different photographer or team. The other five covers feature Nicole Kidman by Steven Klein, Naomi Campbell by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Amber Valletta by Craig McDean, Lea Seydoux by Peter Lindbergh and Daria Werbowy by Mikael Jansson.

She is also the same actress who publicly complained that her breasts had been digitally enhanced for a film poster, as well as in a Chanel fashion advert.

« For King Arthur, for a poster, they gave me these strange droopy tits, » she said in an interview with Allure magazine in 2012.

« A I don’t have tits anyway, and B they digitally made them, and I thought, Whoaaaaa! It’s my face on that poster.

« I thought ‘Well, if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts’. »

Keira Knightley has complained that airbrushing in the above movie poster gave her « droopy tits »

She continued: « Normally the woman has to expose everything and the guy doesn’t. Sex scenes in films I’m quite rigorous about what gets exposed. No bottom half!

« I don’t mind exposing my tits because they’re so small people really aren’t that interested. It’s much easier as you get older. You can say, ‘No’, ‘Yes’, ‘No’. »

The feminists among us may wish to point out her decision to pose topless could well be a statement of solidarity to the FreeTheNipple campaign, adidas obuv bazar as championed by the aforementioned Barbadian pop star, model Cara Delevingne and Scout Willis.

Willis was banned from Instagram for posting a photograph of a sweatshirt she designed featuring two topless women.

She later staged a topless protest on the streets of New York to demonstrate against Instagram’s no nudity clauses under the belief that « no woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body ».

« I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness, » she said.

« What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body. »Click the Adblock/Adblock Plus icon, which is to the right of your address bar.
