first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Dr. Chuching Wang of the Metropolitan Water District will speak on “Thirst for Knowledge: Southern California Water Resources.”Coastal Southern California is a semi-arid area, but this 5,200 square mile area with perennial sunshine has almost 20 million people and a trillion dollar economy. Water is one of the most precious natural resources for this population and economy. In addition to telling us where our drinking water comes from, Dr. Wang will give an update on the California drought, El Nino, and Integrated water resources planning. He hopes that we will realize how precious every drop of water is in Southern California, and that water conservation will be part of the living habit of Southern Californians instead of a drought emergency measure.

Nathaniel Woods executed in Alabama after Supreme Court denies stay

Nathaniel Woods executed in Alabama after Supreme Court denies stay

first_imgsimpson33/iStock(ATMORE, Ala.) — The controversial execution of Nathaniel Woods was carried out late Thursday in Alabama just minutes after the Supreme Court denied a temporary stay, issued only hours earlier.Woods was pronounced dead at 9:01 p.m. local time, according to the Alabama Department of Corrections.Advocates had argued Woods, who was convicted in the murder of three police officers in 2004, did not directly take part in the slayings and should have his execution delayed.The decision came after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey reviewed the letter requesting a reprieve from the death sentence, but said she would allow the execution to proceed.“Governor Ivey does not presently intend to exercise her powers of commutation or reprieve in this case,” general counsel William G. Parker Jr. wrote. “While Governor Ivey reserves the right to grant clemency at any time before an execution is carried out, she has determined, based on her review of the complete record, including the matters presented in your letter, that clemency for Mr. Woods at this hour is unwarranted.”Woods, 44, was killed by lethal injection at the William C. Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore, Alabama.“The fight is far from over. Nathaniel is an innocent man, and that will always be the truth. We are not giving up,” the family said in a statement provided to ABC News.Supporters were calling for Ivey to grant a reprieve. As of Thursday morning, Ivey offered no sign that she would intervene in Williams’ case and it appeared the execution would go as planned.But late Thursday, Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas issued a temporary stay in the minutes leading up to the execution of Woods, who was convicted of capital murder in the 2004 killings of three Birmingham, Alabama, police officers.He already requested his final meal of sweet potatoes, spinach, chicken patty, chicken leg quarter, cooked apples, fries, two oranges and an orange flavored drink, according to a statement from the Alabama Department of Corrections. However, he only took one bite of the chicken and left the rest of his meal untouched, the statement read.Woods also made calls earlier that day to his father, sister, daughter and mother, as well as friends. His imam was expected to be the only person present at the execution.At news of the temporary stay, the son of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., who had joined a chorus of calls to halt the execution, praised the move.“Amazing news!! The Supreme Court has issued a stay of execution for Nathaniel Woods!! Great work everyone!” Martin Luther King III wrote on Twitter.Following the execution, King called it a “mockery of justice.”A spokeswoman with the Alabama Department of Corrections told ABC News that the execution warrant did not run out until 11:59 p.m., meaning they had until then to carry out the execution once the court decided to lift the temporary stay.On Tuesday, King sent a letter to Ivey, a Republican, reading, “I stand with hundreds of thousands of Americans across Alabama and the nation, pleading with you not to execute Nathaniel Woods.”In his letter, King, who was born in Alabama, told Ivey her state was “set to kill a man who is very likely innocent.”King told Fox News Thursday, “If a person is innocent, they should not be killed in this country. People have been killed and [hanged] for doing nothing. And in this context, if that is the prospect, we ought to at least go through the facts, go through the information, give the system the opportunity to work if it did not work.”As of Thursday afternoon, more than 91,000 people had signed a petition on the website Change.org to stop the execution of Woods, who would become the first person executed in Alabama this year and the 67th since the state reinstated the death penalty in 1976. Ivey noted two Alabama citizens had been executed since 1983 as being accomplices to capital murder.Woods’ alleged accomplice, Kerry Spencer, confessed to being the sole gunman who killed the officers with a high-powered weapon, but separate juries convicted him and Woods of four capital murder charges, including killing the officers in the course of committing another crime.“The state offered the testimony of 39 witnesses at Woods’ capital murder trial, including Officer Michael Collins, 25 other law enforcement officers, and forensic experts,” Ivey wrote in a lengthy statement announcing Woods’ execution. “There is no evidence, and no argument has been made, that Nathaniel Woods tried to stop the gunman from committing these heinous crimes. In fact, he later bragged about his participation in these horrific murders. As such, the jury did not view Woods’ acts as those of an innocent bystander; they believed that he was a fully engaged participant.”Spencer’s trial was held before Woods’ case was heard by a jury, but his execution date has yet to be set.During both trials, prosecutors presented the juries the theory that Woods and Spencer acted in tandem to lure the officers into the apartment to kill them.On June 17, 2004, Birmingham police officers Carlos Owen, Harley Chisholm III and Charles Bennett were shot to death while executing a misdemeanor assault warrant for Woods at a suspected crack house in Birmingham. A fourth officer was also shot, but survived and testified against Woods.A jury convicted Woods in December 2005, and in a nonunanimous verdict of 10-2 recommended a sentence of death.Chisholm’s sister has come out against the execution, saying in a statement to ABC News provided by Wood’s family: “I am writing to express my sincere wishes for Governor Ivey to stop the execution of Nathaniel Woods. I am the sister of Harley Chisholm III. I do not think that Nathaniel is guilty of murder. I urge Governor Ivey to reconsider her decision not to intervene.”“There is no harm in allowing more time for the courts to investigate,” the statement added. “I want the new evidence to be brought forward and evaluated by new attorneys. Please do not move forward with the hasty decision to execute Nathaniel. My conscience will not let me live with this if he dies. I beg you to have mercy on him.”Alabama State Attorney General Steve Marshall said in a statement Wednesday that Woods was “correctly found guilty and sentenced to death by a jury of his peers.”“The only injustice in the case of Nathaniel Woods is that which was inflicted on those four policemen that terrible day in 2004,” Marshall said in the statement.Woods appealed his conviction, arguing his lawyer gave him inadequate representation by misinforming him that he could not be convicted of capital murder as an accomplice and convincing him to reject a plea deal prosecutors offered him of 20 to 25 years in prison, according to court records.“A jury of Mr. Woods’ peers convicted him of four counts of capital murder,” Ivey wrote Thursday night. “In the past 15 years, his conviction has been reviewed at least nine times, and no court has found any reason to overturn the jury’s decision.”Woods’ appeal was denied by the Alabama Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court.In his letter to Ivey, King stated that Woods “has never had a fair trial” and has not gotten the opportunity to present new evidence since his conviction bolstering his claim that Spencer acted alone and that there was never a plan to lure the officers into an ambush.The case has also garnered the attention of celebrities like Kim Kardashian West, who has become an advocate for criminal justice reform. She tweeted Thursday, Woods “is scheduled to be executed in Alabama TONIGHT for murders he did NOT commit. Join the broad coalition- including members of the jury and relatives of the victims – in urging @GovernorKayIvey and @AGSteveMarshall to stay Nate’s execution.”Following Ivey’s inaction, which allowed Woods’ execution to proceed, West said her heart goes out to Woods’ family and those who worked to “save his life.”“This is a tragic example of injustice in the system,” she tweeted. “Nate will die for a crime another man confessed to and says Nate had nothing to do with.”West met with President Donald Trump Wednesday at the White House to talk criminal justice reform along with women the president recently commuted.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Grateful Dead Delivers Impressive Jams At Cape Cod Coliseum, On This Day In 1979 [Full-Show Audio]

Grateful Dead Delivers Impressive Jams At Cape Cod Coliseum, On This Day In 1979 [Full-Show Audio]

first_img1979 was a year of flux for the Grateful Dead. The final year of the band’s trailblazing 1970s-era, 1979 was a period of transition for the band between the departure of Keith (and Donna Jean) Godchaux, and Brent Mydland‘s arrival, the Dead were able to further explore their own material and with their new pianist who provided a revamped style of playing and impressive vocals to match.The Dead would release their 11th studio album with Go To Heaven a year later in April 1980. The album included, among other things, some questionable cover art and a slew of Dead classics in “Alabama Getaway”, “Althea”, “Feel Like A Stranger”, “Lost Sailor”, and “Saint of Circumstance”. Several of which would find their way into the band’s rotation by the fall of ’79.While there’s no disputing the brilliance of 1977 in general, like the famous Barton Hall show at Cornell University (5/8), the Hartford Civic Center (5/28), the Sportatorium (5/22), or even Buffalo’s War Auditorium show (5/9), the Dead’s visit to the Cape Cod Coliseum on 10/27/79 in South Yarmouth, MA is no less significant. Though unbeknownst at the time, it’s almost as if Deadheads can hear the band turning the page into the next era of their long, strange trip when revisiting their 1979 Cape Cod performance.After stirring up the crowd with a quintessential opener in “Jack Straw”, the first set heated up with a great “Me & My Uncle” into “Big River” segue which indicated, if nothing else, that guitarist Jerry Garcia was going to be in top form that night. Sounding flexible and focused, Garcia proceeded to put on a display for one and all, with each solo more mesmerizing than the one before.The second half of the performance kicked off with an absolute show-stopper in “Dancing In The Streets”. Beginning and ending with Garcia’s envelope filter effects, the jam was as tight and funky as anything that was coming out of the Dead machine by 1979. With Mydland providing the underlying current to this jam, Garcia was able to take this sucker for a ride with Bob Weir riding shotgun and Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mickey Hart all holding down a conjoined rhythm section. With amazing tempo and groove leading the way, “Dancin’” gave way to a rockin’ 17+ minute version of “Franklin’s Tower”.A solid, swirling outro jam in “He’s Gone” and “Caution (Do Not Step On Tracks)” led to an all-time maddening bass drop from bassist Phil Lesh into “The Other One”. By the time the show wrapped up with a “Drums” section leading to a blazing “Not Fade Away”, “Black Peter”, Chuck Berry’s “Around and Around”, and a “One More Saturday Night” encore, there was no question that the evening’s proceedings were of unparalleled greatness. A fitting end to a show highlighting the tail end of arguably the Dead’s strongest decade.Revisit the band’s memorable October 1979 performance in Cape Cod below.Grateful Dead – Cape Cod Coliseum – 10/27/79 [Audio: Jonathan Aizen]last_img read more

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion: Eriksen strike keeps Spurs on track for Champions League spot

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Brighton and Hove Albion: Eriksen strike keeps Spurs on track for Champions League spot

first_img Source: talkSPORT Christian Eriksen struck with two minutes remaining to boost Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League.Despite dominating possession and enjoying the best chances of the game, Spurs could not find a way past Brighton and Hove Albion.However, with two minutes left to play, Eriksen was not closed down on the right-hand side of the box and drove the ball into the corner past the despairing dive of Mat Ryan.The victory moves Mauricio Pochettino’s third-place side three points clear of Chelsea after their draw against Burnley on Monday night.As for the visitors, Chris Hughton set his side out not to lose and perhaps were unlucky not to nick a point for their sterling defensive efforts.The Seagulls remain 17th in the table, just three points above Cardiff, who are one place below them, with three matches left of the season.It was clear that Brighton had not come to play an expansive game and with Spurs starting all of their fit and available big guns it soon became an exercise in home attack versus away defence.But the hosts were never going to find it easy to search for a way through the 11 Brighton men behind the ball and clear-cut chances were proving difficult to come by in the opening 45 minutes.They were denied by some heroic defending in the 20th minute as Lewis Dunk blocked Jan Vertonghen’s low shot, with a goalmouth scramble ensuing while they peppered Mat Ryan’s goal with long-distance efforts as Vertonghen, Eriksen and Lucas Moura all teed off.Spurs did find themselves susceptible to a rare Brighton counter attack as Florin Andone charged down Toby Alderweireld’s attempted pass just outside his own penalty area and raced the entire length of the pitch only to be stopped by a fine Danny Rose tackle.Pochettino’s men could have gone at half-time in front had it not been for a great Ryan save.Alli superbly controlled Kieran Trippier’s clever ball in but Ryan got fingertips to his instinctive left-footed shot, with Shane Duffy in the right place to clear things off the line.Spurs upped the ante after the restart and set up camp in Brighton’s half as the search for the opener resumed.Again clear opportunities proved elusive as Brighton defended for their lives and it was long-distance efforts that provided the most threat.Eriksen sent a curling effort rising just over the crossbar while Ryan superbly clawed Rose’s vicious effort.It was incessant Tottenham attacking and they finally began to get closer as the woodwork denied Alderweireld as he shot on the turn from a corner before Alli blazed over from a good position.Hueng-min Son, so often the hero for Spurs when they need a goal, then screwed an effort just wide as there was no let-up for Brighton.Alderweireld had another effort deflected while Eriksen tested Ryan as it looked like Spurs were going to be held to their first goalless draw in 68 games.last_img read more
