ExWSU quarterback Ryan Leaf arrested

first_imgHELENA, Mont. (AP) — Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf was arrested Friday in his Montana hometown of Great Falls on burglary and drug possession charges, police said.The circumstances surrounding Leaf’s arrest were not immediately clear. Great Falls Police Sgt. Dean Bennett, who confirmed Leaf’s arrest, said Friday night that he had not seen a report detailing the allegations against the ex-football player.Leaf was booked on felony charges of burglary of a residence and criminal possession of dangerous drugs, plus a first-time charge of misdemeanor theft, Cascade County Detention Center Officer Robert Rivera said.Leaf was freed on $76,000 bond and is scheduled to make an initial court appearance Monday.Leaf, a former standout quarterback for Washington State, was the No. 2 pick in the 1998 draft behind Peyton Manning. But Leaf flamed out as quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, gaining a reputation as one of the biggest busts in NFL history. There is no phone listing for Leaf in Great Falls. A message left at his parents’ house was not immediately returned Friday night. Leaf released a statement through his publicist, Wendy Ogunsemore on Friday night.“I’ve made some mistakes, and have no excuses,” the statement read. “I am using the tools I’ve learned to move forward rather than backwards, and will be open to talking about the details in the days to come.

Its over between Kdramas golden couple Song Hyekyo and Song Joongki Did

first_imgSouth Korea’s favourite television couple Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo have decided to end their marriage! The couple is heading for divorce following a string of cheating allegations directed at each other. The 37-year-old actress’ agency UAA released a statement on the same as they cited “personality differences” as the reason behind their marriage falling apart.On the same, Chinese media has speculated that the age difference between the couple caused them to be unfaithful to each other and eventually call off their marriage. Back in February, reports of Joong-ki, 33, cheating on his 37-year-old wife, Hye-kyo surfaced. According to Taiwan’s Apple Daily, Joong-ki cheated on her with her makeup artist. However, to quash the rumours, the makeup artist shared a picture with Hye-kyo to let the fans know that nothing of that sort happened. Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo at their weddingInstagramAnother rumour states that Hye-kyo’s contemporary Park Bo-gum was involved in a relationship with Hye-kyo, which further brought concerns for the married couple. Netizens have commented on Hye-kyo’s dating history wherein she has often wound up with her onscreen co-stars. Take Lee Byung-hun in 2003’s All In drama or Hyun-bin in 2008’s the World That They Live In. Even Hye-kyo and Joong-ki fell in love on the sets of Descendents of the Sun which became a big hit. Much recently, Park Bo-gum and Song Hye-kyo shared screen space in 2018’s Encounter.In a statement released by Blossom Entertainment, agency representing Bo-gum and Joong-ki, a warning has been released against those linking Bo-gum to the estranged couple’s split. The statement reads, “We are planning to take strict legal action against the rumours being spread around in regard to Park Bo-gum, shortly after news of Song Hye-kyo and Song Joong-ki’s divorce became a huge topic.” The statement further reads, “It seems that such rumours were fabricated as Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum recently worked on a production together. We are also in the process of discussing legal action against other rumours outside of the recent divorce rumours.” Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyoInstagramSong Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo first met on the sets of Descendants of the Sun in 2016 where they played lovebirds. While Joong-ki played special forces captain Yoo Si-jin, Hye-kyo played doctor Kang Mo-yeon in the show.

Study shows oxytocin spray promotes social bonding behavior in dogs

first_imgThe researchers suggest their study proves that oxytocin levels in dogs (and likely other mammals) are not related to just reproduction, but instead they appear to be a part of a process involved in bonding and promoting unity among group members. (Phys.org) —A small team of researchers at Tokyo University has found that giving dogs oxytocin causes them to display stronger bonding behavior, both with people and other dogs. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the team describes their experiments with several dogs and what their findings might suggest about the impact of oxytocin on mammals in general. More information: Oxytocin promotes social bonding in dogs, Teresa Romero, PNAS, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1322868111AbstractRecent evidence suggests that enduring social bonds have fitness benefits. However, very little is known about the neural circuitry and neurochemistry underlying the formation and maintenance of stable social bonds outside reproductive contexts. Oxytocin (OT), a neuropeptide synthetized by the hypothalamus in mammals, regulates many complex forms of social behavior and cognition in both human and nonhuman animals. Animal research, however, has concentrated on monogamous mammals, and it remains unknown whether OT also modulates social bonds in nonreproductive contexts. In this study we provide behavioral evidence that exogenous OT promotes positive social behaviors in the domestic dog toward not only conspecifics but also human partners. Specifically, when sprayed with OT, dogs showed higher social orientation and affiliation toward their owners and higher affiliation and approach behaviors toward dog partners than when sprayed with placebo. Additionally, the exchange of socio-positive behaviors with dog partners triggered the release of endogenous OT, highlighting the involvement of OT in the development of social relationships in the domestic dog. These data provide new insight into the mechanisms that facilitate the maintenance of close social bonds beyond immediate reproductive interest or genetic ties and complement a growing body of evidence that identifies OT as one of the neurochemical foundations of sociality in mammalian species. Credit: Noël Zia Lee, Wikimedia Commons Explore further A lot of studies have been conducted on oxytocin, a hormone that is naturally produced by most mammals. Because of its impact on behavior, the hormone has been given the unofficial name of Love Hormone—increased levels of it in humans has been found to occur naturally during sexual arousal and it’s also been found to cause people to be more social and less antagonistic. In this latest study, the team in Japan sought to find out if the same is true for dogs.To find out how a sudden increase of oxytocin might affect how a dog behaves, the researchers enlisted the assistance of 16 pet adult dogs and their owners. Each dog had a mist sprayed into its nostrils—for some the mist contained oxytocin, for others it was just salt water. Next, blood and urine samples were taken from the dogs every five minutes, in-between which, they were monitored to see how they interacted with first with their owners, then with other dogs.The researchers report that as expected, oxytocin levels in the dogs rose more than just the amount that was in the mist—their bodies produced more when detecting heightened levels. More importantly, they also report detecting noticeable changes in behavior of the dogs that received the oxytocin—with their owners, they pawed and sniffed more than the dogs in the control group, and attempted to hold eye contact more as well. In short, they demonstrated more pronounced bonding behavior. The researchers also report finding much the same thing when the dogs were allowed to interact with other dogs. They noted stronger bonding behavior regardless of whether the other dogs were the same breed or not.

In Book Former Defense Chief Mattis Sideswipe

first_img“One Saturday night he saw me hoisting myself up to look out the barred window, eager to see what I was missing outside.” ‘What do you see, Jimmy?’ he said, lying back on his bunk.” ‘A muddy parking lot.'” ‘From down here, I see stars in the night sky,’ he said. ‘It’s your choice. You can look at stars or mud.'”He was in jail, but his spirit wasn’t.””You don’t always control your circumstances,” Mattis concludes about his jailhouse epiphany, “but you can always control your response.” His book is a compendium of circumstances often beyond his control. What makes it a compelling read is how this warrior-monk dealt with and learned from the jams he found himself in. His call sign, CHAOS, irreverently bestowed by a more junior Marine officer, is an acronym: Does the “Colonel Have Another Outstanding Solution?”The 1991 Gulf War was Mattis’ first battlefield experience. It would become his touchstone for how a winning war should be waged. As “the least astute battalion commander in the Marine Corps,” Mattis trained his charges — “my young wolves” — for battle in the desert of Southern California and the peaks of the Sierra Nevada farther north. “Each week,” he writes, “the blade got sharper. … My intent was to rehearse until we could improvise on the battlefield like a jazzman in New Orleans.” Relocated to the Saudi desert, Mattis would walk the lines after dark, chatting with his charges and learning their state of mind. “Troops will tell you things when they’re on guard duty at night.”Despite leading his troops into an ambush at one point after three days with almost no rest, Mattis took part in a clear victory: The U.S. chased the Iraqi army out of Kuwait during 100 hours of ground combat. “In my military judgment,” he writes, “President George H.W. Bush knew how to end a war on our own terms. … He approved of deploying overwhelming forces to compel the enemy’s withdrawal or swiftly end the war.” And, in a clear dig at Bush’s successors, Mattis added that Bush “avoided sophomoric decisions like imposing a ceiling on the number of troops or setting a date when we would have to stop fighting or leave.”A decade later, Mattis was itching to avenge the Sept. 11 attacks, but landlocked Afghanistan was not a place where the Marines — a maritime expeditionary force — could be expected to make a forced entry by sea. Still, he convinced his superiors that he could fly 4,000 Marines through 400 miles of Pakistani airspace separating Afghanistan and the Arabian Sea to a remote airstrip near Kandahar. “It never entered my mind that we might fail,” Mattis writes. “Marines don’t know how to spell the word. … Our lads were ready for the brawl.”But Mattis’ forced entry into Afghanistan soon had him clashing with Gen. Tommy Franks, the top U.S. military commander in Afghanistan. He writes bitterly of being told by Franks to hold his troops back from going after Osama bin Laden in the al-Qaida leader’s mountain hideout of Tora Bora. Rather than blaming President George W. Bush for not sending in the Marines, Mattis faulted himself for failing to “build understanding up the chain of command” of how his forces might have prevented bin Laden’s escape.Mattis’ thoughts on Bush’s decision to go to war with Iraq a year later were another matter. “Invading Iraq stunned me,” Mattis writes. “Why were we fighting them again?” Toppling the Iraqi army, which Mattis compares to “a tall, dead tree,” was the easy part. Left unclear, he writes, was what would happen after that. “I had no specific policy guidance.”The chafing by Mattis against his superiors is sharpest in his account of trying to seize Fallujah after four Americans were hanged and burned there by Sunni insurgents. With his forces poised outside the city for street-to-street combat, Mattis received the order to desist. Bush had decided to have American commanders work with local leaders to create an all-Iraqi security force for Fallujah. “I believe the President’s goal was idealistic and tragically mistaken,” Mattis writes, “based on misguided assessments that appeared impervious to my reporting.”Much of the general’s pushback is over restrictive rules of engagement that made little sense to him. “There are some jerks in the world that need to be shot,” he says he told his “lads” patrolling Anbar province. “Be polite, be professional — but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.”The book reprises other unbridled comments by Mattis. “You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil,” he recalls telling an audience of sailors, Marines and civilian contractors in San Diego in 2003. “You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually, it’s quite fun to fight them. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.”The remark was widely reported and criticized. “Frankly, I was surprised and found their comments bizarre,” Mattis writes of his critics. “I never moderated my words or apologized. Knowing our enemies also read my words, I wanted them to know that America had troops who were not tormented about fighting people who murder in the name of religion or deny human rights to others.”Mattis was investigated in 2004 by a U.S. military team for possible murder charges after he ordered an airstrike on what he says was an al-Qaida team that had crossed from Syria into Iraq. His team’s account of killing 26 insurgents had been contradicted by the Guardian, which published a report alleging “that women and children had been the ones killed, because the gathering was actually a wedding party.” The official investigation concluded the airstrike Mattis ordered had in fact hit a war camp, and he was not charged. “But by then it was too late,” he laments. “The initial false reports had become ground truth; correcting it was not considered news. We had once again lost the battle of the narrative.”No administration catches more flak in this book than that headed by Obama. In a chapter titled “Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory,” Mattis describes a losing battle as head of the U.S. Central Command (appointed by Obama in 2010) to keep a contingent of 18,000 troops in Iraq. “Beginning with President Bush and continuing through the Obama administration, the White House was set on a total troop withdrawal, for political reasons,” he writes. “The National Security staff put no stock in our forecast that if we pulled out, the enemy would resurrect.”A visit to Iraq by Vice President Joe Biden in the summer of 2010 gets mixed reviews from Mattis. He quotes a teasing question Biden put to him there. “Know why you’re at CENTCOM?” Biden asks him. “Because no one else was dumb enough to take the job.”Mattis writes he found Biden “an admirable and amiable man” and liked him. But the vice president was not to be swayed. “He didn’t want to hear more; he wanted our forces out of Iraq. Whatever path led there fastest, he favored,” Mattis writes. “He exuded the confidence of a man whose mind was made up, perhaps even indifferent to considering the consequences were he judging the situation incorrectly.”When Obama announced in 2011 that U.S. troops were being withdrawn from Iraq, his assertion that “we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq” rankled his military commander for the region. “The words ‘sovereign, stable and self-reliant’ had never been used by the Pentagon or the State Department,” Mattis writes, “and I had never seen them in any intelligence report.” Rhetoric, he concludes acidly, “doesn’t end conflicts.”Obama’s efforts to end the U.S. fighting in Afghanistan fare no better in Mattis’ account. He notes that while Obama had “however reluctantly” sent an additional 30,000 U.S. forces there in 2010, the president had also promised those troops would begin to come home after 18 months. “My thought was that ‘exiting’ a war was a by-product of winning that war,” Mattis writes. “Unless you want to lose, you don’t tell an enemy when you are done fighting, and you don’t set an exit unrelated to the situation on the ground.”Things went downhill from there. At a 2011 meeting with then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s Defense Policy Board, former Defense Secretary James Schlesinger asks Mattis what the larger strategy is behind the Pentagon’s force deployments. “I don’t know what our integrated strategy is,” Mattis recalls responding, “or specifically what it is for my region.” That earned him a chewing out from a “high-ranking DOD official.” Mattis says he ignored the scolding. “It had become too clear that I was supposed to sit quietly in the back of the bus as it careened off a strategic cliff.”Mattis also clashed with the Obama administration over its insistence on wanting “human rights to be the singular criterion for our foreign policy,” a stance that put Washington at odds with nations Mattis considered key allies, among them Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. “The Arab monarchies and strongman leaders were not reforming at the pace our human rights idealists insisted upon,” Mattis writes. “But those nations that had stood by us after 9/11 had records far better than those of hostile, oppressive regimes like Iran and Syria.”It was Mattis’ enduring enmity toward Iran that abruptly ended his tenure as CENTCOM commander. He criticizes the Obama administration’s failure to respond more forcefully to a 2011 failed plot to bomb a Georgetown restaurant where Saudi Arabia’s ambassador would be dining. While Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, publicly pointed at Iran’s Quds force as being behind the plot, “we treated an act of war as a law enforcement violation,” Mattis fumes, “jailing the low-level courier.”Late in 2012, Mattis writes, “I received an unauthorized phone call telling me in an hour, the Pentagon would be announcing my relief.” He did not go gladly. “I was leaving a region aflame and in disarray,” he writes. “The lack of an integrated regional strategy has left us adrift, and our friends confused.”We will possibly have to wait for another administration before learning Mattis’ thoughts about his 23 months as Trump’s defense secretary. But he lets some of those views slip toward the end of his book. “Nations with allies thrive, and those without wither,” he writes. “A polemicist’s role is not sufficient for a leader; strategic acumen must incorporate a fundamental respect for other nations that have stood with us as trouble loomed.”A parting shot? Perhaps. Mattis clearly has another book to write that many will be eager to read.Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit NPR. In Book, Former Defense Chief Mattis Sideswipes President… by NPR News David Welna 8.28.19 1:55pm It’s been eight months since President Donald Trump’s first secretary of defense, Jim Mattis, handed in his resignation.Now the retired four-star general has written his first book, co-authored by former Marine Bing West. Spoiler alert: Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead is not, as the title might suggest, a tell-all exposé of Mattis’ tense tenure at the helm of the Pentagon with Trump as commander in chief.”I’m old fashioned,” Mattis writes. “I don’t write about sitting presidents.”Mattis mentions Trump by name only four times, all in the prologue’s first two pages — each instance taking place prior to the president’s taking office. That said, he does imply criticism, without directly taking shots.”All Americans need to recognize that our democracy is an experiment and one that can be reversed,” Mattis writes. “We all know that we are better than our current politics.”Mattis’ maddening refusal to offer direct thoughts about Trump does not apply to past commanders in chief. His war stories — from liberating Kuwait to invading Afghanistan to battling insurgents in Iraq — are also a refighting of old battles with officers and others whose wartime guidance he portrays as deferring more to presidential whims than to theater-of-war realities.Enjoying his perch as a visiting scholar at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, Mattis never expected Trump to offer him the Pentagon’s top job. “I figured that my strong support of NATO and my dismissal of the use of torture on prisoners would have the President-elect looking for another candidate,” he writes. But when Trump, who had never met Mattis before interviewing him for the job, called him “the real deal” and asked that he join his Cabinet, the self-described political independent agreed on the spot. “In my view, when the President asks you to do something, you don’t play Hamlet on the wall, wringing your hands.”Trump may have believed he was hiring a latter-day Gen. George C. Patton, a made-for-TV war hero the president-elect would repeatedly refer to as “Mad Dog.” (That moniker, which Mattis abhors, goes unmentioned in his book.) Instead, what Trump got was the seasoned, well-read and thoughtful warrior-scholar who penned this memoir, the only Cabinet member who failed to laud his boss in front of TV cameras at the president’s first full staff meeting.”I did as well as I could for as long as I could,” Mattis writes. He left about halfway into what he expected to be a four-year tenure. “When my concrete solutions and strategic advice, especially keeping faith with allies, no longer resonated, it was time to resign, despite the limitless joy I felt serving alongside our troops in defense of our Constitution.”Mattis informs us this book has been in the works since he previously parted ways with his former commander in chief, Barack Obama. In that episode, he was fired in late 2012 as head of the U.S. Central Command.Call Sign Chaos is ostensibly part of the well-trodden genre of leaders keen to share their insights on what it takes to lead. “My purpose in writing this book, is to convey the lessons I learned for those who might benefit, whether in the military or in civilian life,” Mattis writes.And the book, indeed, is chockablock with insights and aphorisms about what it takes to be a good leader. It begins with a death-scraping tumble down a steep, icy ridge in Mattis’ home state of Washington when he was 20. Alone and badly battered, he refused a stranger’s offer for a lift home, opting instead to camp by himself for a couple of days and nurse his wounds. That fall, and his proud insistence on recovering alone, would be, as he writes, “a metaphor for my subsequent career in the Marines: You make mistakes, or life knocks you down; either way, you get up and get on with it. You deal with life. You don’t whine about it.”Or perhaps you write about it. Chapter by chapter, Mattis takes us through a steady rise through the ranks of the U.S. Marine Corps, an ascent he self-deprecatingly finds inexplicable. “Every time I made a mistake — and I made many,” he writes, “the Marines promoted me.” Mattis tells us very little about his personal life. There is nary a word, for example, about this lifelong bachelor’s broken engagement to a woman who could not countenance a life of constant relocations with a man dedicated to an often lethal job. He does disclose that as a “mediocre student with a partying attitude” at Central Washington State College in 1968, he served time in a local jail on weekends as punishment for underage drinking. There he met another inmate:last_img read more

Fear and Horror Among Indonesias LGBT Community

first_imgSAWASDEE: eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Is a Gay Sex Ban Looming?This was the headline on a CNN web page on February 26 this year.For more than two years, a crackdown on gay activity and the LGBT community in general has been going on in Indonesia with members of Parliament at the forefront. In February 2016 the Defence Minister set the ball rolling by launching a scathing attack, stating that LGBT rights are “more dangerous than nuclear war.”Early last year the Mental Health Director at the Ministry of Health then proclaimed that LGBT people have “mental disorders”. Soon there began a series of mass anti-LGBT protests by religious conservatives. That was followed by a much-publicized raid on a gay sauna in Jakarta when 141 men were arrested under pornography laws. Last December the country’s Constitutional Court narrowly rejected an application by a Muslim group to criminalize same-sex relations.Anti LGBT Protestors in Yogyakarta – CNNNow though, the anti-LGBT movement continues its forward march. According to CNN, “Within weeks lawmakers could vote on a new law that looks set to criminalize sex outside of marriage and homosexual sex in Indonesia, as part of wide-reaching changes to the country’s criminal code.”It seems no coincidence that the present crackdown is You can read full article here: http://www.asiaguys.net/fear-and-horror-among-indonesias-lgbt-community/ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…last_img read more

US seeks UN action on chemical weapon attacks in Syria

first_imgCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. While Russia and the United States have failed to agree on a way to end the Syrian conflict, now in its fifth year, they have agreed in the past on eliminating its chemical weapons stockpile.Following a chemical weapon attack on a Damascus suburb that killed hundreds of civilians on Aug. 21, 2013 a U.S.-Russian agreement led to a Security Council resolution the following month ordering the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons, precursors, and the equipment to produce the deadly agents.The Syrian government’s support for the resolution and decision to join the OPCW warded off possible U.S. military strikes in the aftermath of the Aug. 21 attack, which Damascus denied carrying out.While Syria’s declared stockpile of 1,300 metric tons of chemicals has been destroyed, there are still outstanding questions about possible undeclared chemical weapons that the OPCW is still investigating.Chlorine is not a banned agent used in chemical weapons, like sarin or ricin. But it is toxic and its use in attacks in Syria started being reported last year.In March, the Security Council approved a U.S.-drafted resolution that condemns the use of toxic chemicals such as chlorine in Syria, and threatening militarily enforced action in the case of further violations. Comments   Share   UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United States circulated a draft U.N. resolution Thursday aimed at identifying the perpetrators of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.The United States has been promoting Security Council action to assess blame for an increasing number of alleged chlorine attacks, and Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said last month that the council should look at the best way to ensure that the people allegedly responsible for chlorine attacks are brought to justice. Check your body, save your life New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Top Stories center_img The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the global chemical weapons watchdog based in The Hague, Netherlands, has a mandate to carry out fact-finding missions and has condemned the use of chlorine in Syria as a breach of international law.But neither the OPCW nor the United Nations have a mandate to determine responsibility for the use of chemical weapons.U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said in a statement that “given the frequent allegations of chlorine attacks in Syria, and the absence of any international body to identify the perpetrators of chemical weapons attacks, it is critical that the U.N. Security Council find consensus and set up an independent investigative mechanism.”Russia’s deputy U.N. ambassador Vladimir Safronkov said the United States circulated the draft resolution at a closed council meeting on Syria’s chemical weapons.A Security Council diplomat said the resolution would establish a “Joint Investigative Mechanism” that would enable the U.N. to build on the OPCW’s expertise and fact-finding missions and conduct investigations to identify those involved in the use of chemical weapons in Syria. The diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because the draft hasn’t been released publicly.
