The child suffered major head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, Stage said. “It’s an onoging investigation. At this time it seems to be a tragic accident,” Stage said. (562) 698-0955, Ext. 2105 SANTA FE SPRINGS – A man held his 3-year-old son’s body in his arms Monday until emergency crews arrived, after his vehicle ran over the child in what investigators are calling a “tragic accident.” The California Highway Patrol received a call reporting a child struck by a car about 5:10p.m. in the driveway of a back house in the 11600 block of Laurel Avenue, said CHP Officer Raquel Stage. A 35-year-old man, whose name was not released, had just completed backing his 2003 Cadillac Escalade and was beginning to pull forward when his son apparently ran in front of the vehicle, said Stage. From the large SUV, the father did not see his son, Stage said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgInsurance companies face further wrath from motorists, after it was announced that ALL insurers are set to clamp down on young drivers getting insured under their parents’ policies. Young motorists are ultimately being forced off the road by attempting to get insured independently.So, the only alternative and affordable route to take if they want to get insured, is to take out an insurance policy with one of their parents as the named driver on the vehicle. However, it looks like that option will now be taken away by insurance companies.Getting a policy in their own name can cost a young person €5,000, but falls to less than €1,000 if they are a named driver on their mother’s or father’s policy.Broker Jonathan Hehir, of, said insurers were seeing a rise in cases whereby people were making claims on policies that are in the name of the parents, but where the child was the main driver.He told The Irish Independent, “It has become a problem for insurance companies, so they are all now going to start clamping down on it,” he said.Mr Hehir explained that insurers were now sharing more information and were better able to tell when the main driver did not have a policy in their own name.They were able to cross-check and see when a car is registered in the name of the son or daughter, but the insurance policy is in the name of the parent.Mr Hehir said insurers tended be sceptical when a parent had two insurance policies, on two cars, in their name.Insurers and brokers are also suspicious when parents who have not driven for a number of years take out cover again and add a named driver.“Where the cover is blatantly for the kids, there will be problems. If there is a claim and they discover fronting, then they won’t cover accidental damage on the car and won’t cover theft, but will cover third-party claims,” said Mr Hehir.Some insurers are making parents sign declarations to confirm that they are not “fronting” for a child.Anger as insurers set to cut down on young drivers using parent policies was last modified: September 27th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

In fact, Ohio ranks third in the nation for opioid overdose deaths with more than 5,000 Ohioans dying from overdose in 2017 alone.Healthy, drug-free residents are important to a thriving community and economy, which is why Ohio Farm Bureau has joined the Opioid Education Alliance. The alliance, which is composed of more than 40 business, civic and government organizations, has a mission to spread opioid misuse prevention messages through its Denial, OH campaign. The Denial, OH campaign features public service announcements that are set in the fictional town of Denial, Ohio, where residents are “in denial” that their children could become addicted to opioids.Check out the PSAs, and educate yourself, your family and friends on proper prescription opioid use and disposal.Welcome to Denial, OhioPeople in Denial, Ohio  Leave a Commentlast_img read more

first_imgFeaturesReceive messages from the people you followComment on messages and mark them as likedBrowse all links and images attached to messagesManage your followersBrowse the people following youFind new people to followCheck the places around you and buzz about themPosting to BuzzPosting to Buzz from Buzzie is as easy as hitting the compose button, choosing if you want to attach your location to the post and hitting “send.” You can use the app to send both private and public messages.One feature that is missing here, however, is the ability to attach photos and links. Sadly, you can’t set any defaults for the editor, which means that – by default – it always wants to attach your location, for example. Photos and LinksThe app handles posts with photos beautifully. You just tap on the photos and they appear in full-screen mode. Photo sharing is one of Buzz’s best features and this app rightfully puts a lot of emphasis on making the photo browsing experience as seamless as possible. The way the app handles links takes some getting used to, though.Instead of just tapping on the link, you have to push the little paperclip icon at the bottom of the screen. That’s not a deal breaker, but it will surely confuse some people.VerdictGoogle is betting on HTML5 and web apps to deliver its products without having to go through the App Store approval process. Buzzie, however, shows that there are still some clear advantages to developing a native app. The app just feels a lot snappier than Google’s web app for Buzz and even though it doesn’t offer any new features, it makes using Buzz on the iPhone a lot more fun. A few features – like attaching photos to your posts or browsing the map for messages – are still missing, though chances are that the developers will add these in one of the next revisions. Hat tip to The Next Web for spotting the app first.

While the Buzz web app is very good, however, it can’t quite rival the speed and comfort of using a native iPhone app. Fiam‘s Buzzie is the first Buzz app for the iPhone ($1.99 – iTunes link) and even though it is still missing some features, it already gives us a good idea for what developers can achieve by using the Buzz API.

Chants of “We Are The Champions” filled the air as the French bus paraded down the Champs Elysees before a special presidential reception.Among the player on the bus was France striker Olivier Giroud, who according to pundits should rode his luck to a World Cup winner’s medal.Olivier Giroud though feels criticism has always motivated him to do better and the 31-year-old is pleased to silence his detractors with his stellar work rate in his team’s World Cup triumph in Russia.The striker drew flak from fans for not scoring a single goal during France’s successful World Cup campaign but manager Didier Deschamps had previously defended him by highlighting his tremendous off-the-ball work rate and clever support play.2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGELes Bleus, @_OlivierGiroud_ and our little friend en route to the Champs Élysée. #Fiersdetrebleu Team (@FrenchTeam) July 16, 2018Despite the goal drought, Deschamps stuck with the Chelsea striker, who featured in all of France’s seven matches at the World Cup, and Giroud is happy to have played his role.”All of my career I have been, how can I say…I have been through certain difficulties and I have always tried to make it,” Giroud told reporters as France were greeted by thousands of supporters on their return home on Monday.”It motivates me to get better and better and go through these difficulties and it is what happens in life when you are really motivated, determined, committed, it is never easy.advertisementREAD – FIFA World Cup 2018: Full list of prize winners”Football is very hard and people see only the nice part of the job.

first_img\R San Francisco, Jul 20 (AFP) Microsoft has said its revenue and profit climbed in the recently ended quarter, getting results from its bets on cloud computing services and artificial intelligence.The US tech giant reported its net income increased 10 percent to $8.8 billion on revenue that was up 17 percent to $30.1 billion when compared with the same period last year.Microsoft saw revenue gains across its full range of businesses including business services, gaming, internet search ads, its consumer software including Windows and Office and LinkedIn, the recently acquired professional social network.Shares were up more than three percent to $107.80 in after-hours trading following the release of earnings for the quarter ending the fiscal year quarter for Microsoft.”We had an incredible year,” chief executive Satya Nadella said in a release.”Our early investments in the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge are paying off, and we will continue to expand our reach in large and growing markets with differentiated innovation.” Microsoft executives told analysts they expected another year of growth, with demand for computing on the rise and the technology giant well-positioned in that market.”We’re investing aggressively to build Azure as the world’s computer,” Nadella said, referring to Microsoft’s cloud computing platform that competes with services run by Amazon and Google.”We expanded our global data center footprint to 54 regions, more than any other cloud provider.” Despite continuing to invest in promising trends from cloud computing and artificial intelligence to gaming, Microsoft expected its profit margins to improve.Revenue in a productivity and business processes category that included career-focused social network LinkedIn was up 13 percent in the quarter to $9.7 billion, according to Microsoft.advertisementLinkedIn revenue increased 37 percent as usage soared, the earnings release indicated. LinkedIn has seen record levels of postings seeking employees due to a robust US job market, according to Microsoft chief financial officer Amy Hood.Microsoft bought LinkedIn two years ago in a deal valued at $26.2 billion.Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry described Microsoft earnings and its financial path as “super solid,” noting that revenue and earnings per share beat market expectations.Microsoft reported net income of $16.6 billion for the fiscal year on revenue that rose 14 percent to $110.4 billion.Analyst Patrick Moorhead at Moor Insights & Strategy said Microsoft’s results showed healthy growth.”The company drove double-digit revenue growth in every business, which demonstrates to me the firm’s balance,” Moorhead said. “Satya Nadella and team are hitting on all cylinders at this point.” In a major deal announced this week, Microsoft and Walmart unveiled a strategic partnership to help the retail giant ramp up its efforts against Amazon.”I’m especially proud that Walmart chose Azure and Microsoft 365 to accelerate its digital transformation for their associates and customers,” Nadella said during the earnings call.Microsoft has announced technology partnerships with other major firms in recent months including General Electric, Starbucks, Bayer, Spain’s Telefonica and sports organizations such as the NBA and PGA.Moves into business services and cloud computing have reduced Microsoft’s dependence on Windows, the dominant software for personal computers that has been overtaken in the consumer market by mobile devices powered by Google or Apple software.Microsoft has taken to offering software such as Office as subscription services hosted online, even providing applications for Android or Apple mobile devices.Nadella said Office 365 has more than 135 million users, and that a mobile version of Outlook is used on more than 100 million devices powered by Android or Apple software.Microsoft 365 is now a multibillion dollar business, according to Nadella.Microsoft expected that by the end of this calendar year it would close a $7.5-billion stock acquisition of software development platform GitHub.Created in 2008, GitHub allows developers to cooperatively manage software and has more than 28 million users around the world.”With GitHub we recognize the increasingly vital role the developers play in value creation and growth in the area of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge,” Nadella said.(AFP) AMSAMSlast_img read more
