iStock(NEW YORK) — In an extraordinary detention hearing, Jeffrey Epstein on Monday came face-to-face with two alleged victims.Annie Farmer said she was 16 when Epstein had her sent to New Mexico where he was “inappropriate” with her. Courtney Wild told the judge she was 14 when Epstein sexually abused her in Palm Beach, Florida.Both women spoke in support of keeping Epstein locked up without bail. He appeared to watch them address the judge but his face showed no emotion.Judge Richard Berman said he would decide Thursday whether to grant Epstein’s release or, as pre-trial services recommended, keep him jailed.In suggesting Epstein represented an “extraordinary risk of flight,” federal prosecutors revealed that “piles of cash,” dozens of diamonds and an expired, phony passport were allegedly found in a locked safe in Epstein’s mansion.The passport was from a foreign country, had Epstein’s photo but not his name and listed his country of birth as Saudi Arabia.Epstein, who in 2008 served 13 months in jail after pleading guilty to state prostitution charges in Florida, was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges this month for sexually exploiting and abusing dozens of minor girls at his homes in Manhattan, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations, according to federal prosecutors. He has pleaded not guilty to the federal sex trafficking charges in New York.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Ciliate diversity was investigated in situ in freshwater ecosystems of the maritime (South Shetland Islands, mainly Livingston Island, 63°S) and continental Antarctic (Victoria Land, 75°S), and the High Arctic (Svalbard, 79°N). In total, 334 species from 117 genera were identified in both polar regions, i.e. 210 spp. (98 genera) in the Arctic, 120 spp. (73 genera) in the maritime and 59 spp. (41 genera) in the continental Antarctic. Forty-four species (13% of all species) were common to both Arctic and Antarctic freshwater bodies and 19 spp. to both Antarctic areas (12% of all species). Many taxa are cosmopolitans but some, e.g. Stentor and Metopus spp., are not, and over 20% of the taxa found in any one of the three areas are new to science. Cluster analysis revealed that species similarity between different biotopes (soil, moss) within a study area was higher than between similar biotopes in different regions. Distinct differences in the species composition of freshwater and terrestrial communities indicate that most limnetic ciliates are not ubiquitously distributed. These observations and the low congruence in species composition between both polar areas, within Antarctica and between high- and temperate-latitude water bodies, respectively, suggest that long-distance dispersal of limnetic ciliates is restricted and that some species have a limited geographical distribution.
Statewide—The Indiana GOP announced this afternoon that the candidate for the Republican Attorney General in the upcoming November elections will be Todd Rokita. The vote went 3 rounds before a candidate was selected as the winning candidate had to have at least 50% of the vote. Greensburg native and Decatur County Prosecutor Nathan Harter dropped out in round 2 of the voting process. Harter stated on Facebook that he fully endorses Todd Rokita for Attorney General and ask his supporters to do the same. In the Lt. Governor race, current Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch was selected to run with Governor Holcomb in November on the Republican ticket.
… congratulated for their historic performancesGUYANA Football Federation (GFF) president Wayne Forde and executive committee member Dion Inniss congratulated the Guyana men’s national beach soccer team for their historic performances at the 2017 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championship, as they greeted the players at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Tuesday evening.The team made history by winning Guyana’s first matches at a CONCACAF beach soccer tournament, including victories against Belize and Antigua & Barbuda in the Bahamas.“You have done Guyana exceptionally proud,” GFF president Forde told the players and technical staff at the airport. “You exceeded every expectation that we could have had as a federation and as a country. The attention that beach soccer has received over the last couple of weeks should materialise with more players showing an interest in the game; so thank you on behalf of the Executive Committee and the Guyana football fraternity.”In an invited comment, head coach Abdullah Hamid said he welcomed the experience gained for the young team. “We played among a lot of big-playing teams in CONCACAF and it was a great experience for every one of the players.“We could only go forward by promoting sports more in this country, start spreading sports around the country so we can have more youths involved, creating easy access so Guyana can make it to the World Cup at this level.”The GFF believes Guyana has great potential in small-sided brands of football such as beach soccer, and expects the eye-catching performances of the national team to generate a new level of interest in the sport.A series of spectacular performances by 21-year-old Jamal Haynes, including one of the goals of the tournament, earned the Linden-based forward the Scotiabank Young Player Award.“The feeling when I scored that goal; it was awesome,” Haynes said. “I was feeling like I was up on a higher level, knowing that it was my first time and I did such a thing at one of the biggest tournaments of my life.”
