UN Photo/Evan Schneider “I come to your country with a strong message of hope: I am with the people of Honduras,” Mr. Ban said as he delivered remarks in the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa, where he urged the Congress to “be a space to build consensus and effective responses.” “As representatives, you hold the hopes of your people. As lawmakers, you translate those aspirations into policy. As leaders, you are accountable for results,” he added, explaining that while the Central American country has emerged from recent political turbulence and made substantial progress towards meeting the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), poverty, inequality, gang violence, insecurity and impunity remain the big obstacles. As it stands now, two-thirds of Hondurans still live below the poverty line and only one-third of young people finish high school. The country is among the world’s most vulnerable to natural disasters and the impacts of climate change. And opportunities for decent jobs remain few and far between, leading many to seek the path of migration, the Secretary-General said. These obstacles to progress are causing many to “literally run for their lives”, said Mr. Ban, referring to the thousands of unaccompanied minors making a perilous journey to the United States, often exposed to abuse and exploitation. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon meets with President Juan Orlando Hernández at the Presidential House. UN Photo/Evan Schneider Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is congratulated on being awarded the Gran Cruz Extraordinaria con Placa de Oro. UN Photo/Evan Schneider ‹ › “Today, the people of this region are being held at gun point by an upsurge of violent crime fuelled by transnational organized crime and drug-trafficking networks,” he emphasized as he called on all involved countries, those of origin, transit and destination, to urgently protect the human rights of migrant children. “Like people everywhere, Hondurans want good schools for their children. They want transparent, accountable and strong institutions that listen and respond to the people. They want communities free of violence. They want a better future for their families,” the UN chief said. He urged the Government to fulfil its political responsibilities by boosting regional integration, tackling poverty and inequality and citizen insecurity, and by strengthening human rights. From the end of the MDGs to a universal climate change agreement in Paris in December and the 70th anniversary of the UN, the year 2015 is not only pivotal but a year of transformation, Mr. Ban said, explaining that UN Member States are now crafting successor sustainable development goals and pledging to reach a new legal climate deal in Paris by the end of the year. “Taken together, this means that in the next twelve months, we can transform the lives for the generation,” he said, adding: “I am urging governments everywhere to fulfil their political and moral responsibilities. This is my call to dignity – and we must respond with all our vision and all our strength.” On the issue of safeguarding human rights, Mr. Ban said he looked forward to the establishment of the first-ever UN office on human rights in Honduras in the coming months and underscored how the Human Rights Up Front initiative can be helpful in addressing issues as it aims to ensure the Organization acts earlier to address human rights concerns. Earlier in the day, the Secretary-General was awarded the Gran Cruz Extraordinaria con Placa de Oro which he accepted “humility and gratitude” for the UN’s work to build a better world. Also today Mr. Ban met Juan Orlando Hernández, President of Honduras. They discussed the country’s social and economic issues, particularly the Government’s “Plan por una vida major para todos” (Plan for a better life for all) and its links with the multilateral discussions on the post-2015 development agenda. They also discussed the importance of focusing on financing for both the development and climate change agendas. According to Mr. Ban’s spokesperson in New York, the two leaders also addressed concerns regarding Honduras’ security and human rights situation. The Secretary-General welcomed the Government’s willingness to strengthen its relations with the United Nations through the opening of a local presence of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. During a press conference after that meeting, Mr. Ban took note of the Government’s measures to improve the security situation. To that end he said he was very happy to note that the homicide rate has dropped significantly during the last two years from 86 homicidal deaths out of 100,000, to 66. “That is 22 per cent; quite a significant improvement and I highly commend the President and [his] strong leadership and commitment to protect human dignity and human rights, and particularly saving human lives,” said the UN chief. However, he remained deeply concerned by the plight of unaccompanied child migrants from Central America. Although the number of returned children has decreased since the summer, there remains a need to address the situation of minors currently in transit or detention. “In all cases, dignity and human rights must be protected,” said the Secretary-General, emphasizing that the UN stands ready to support regional efforts to address security, including facilitating the exchange of best practices on how to prevent violence and crime, stem youth violence, promote the social reintegration of offenders and strengthen institutions. read more

Mammoet transports fully assembled Cat 797 to the Alberta oil sandsMammoet transports fully assembled Cat 797 to the Alberta oil sands

first_imgFor the first time in Mammoet and Finning history, a fully assembled Cat 797 mining truck was transported from Fort McKay in Northern Alberta to a mining customer site in mid-October 2015. The Cat 797 is an off-highway, ultra class, two-axle, mechanical powertrain haul truck with a 363 t payload capacity. This move followed the signing of an agreement between Mammoet and Finning for transport between customer sites in the Wood Buffalo Region.Since Mammoet had already done transports of the smaller Cat 793 rock truck and a large shovel, Finning and Mammoet initiated conversations about the possibility of transporting a Cat 797 and the associated challenges. This was not an easy task, given the 797 weighs in at almost 536 t. In the past, these trucks were partially disassembled prior to transport and then reassembled at the client site – which added to the overall costs and time. Kellie Brannan, Finning’s Project Manager for this project, stated of the delivery solution proposed by Mammoet: “We were able to remove concerns around safety, cost, downtime and the inconvenience of dismantling a truck for transport.”Mammoet is the world’s largest service provider specialising in engineered heavy lifting and transport. Mammoet Canada Western Ltd, together with Mammoet Solutions, delivered a detailed design that demonstrated innovative engineering and smart application of industry practices to bring this “first” to the industry and reduce costs and downtime for the client. The successful and safe move of this first truck will be followed by a number more before the end of the year.last_img read more

Humanpowered helicopters Not great for transportation but a fun hobbyHumanpowered helicopters Not great for transportation but a fun hobby

first_imgHuman-powered flight has eluded mankind from the very beginning. Our bulky bodies just aren’t designed for flying, but we persist, enlisting all means of contraptions, high-tech materials, and mechanical advantages in order to get closer to sustained flight. Ultimately our strength-to-weight ratio means that no matter how many gears we use, how much carbon fiber we employee, and how much lift the wings provide, we still can’t get off the ground — and stay there — for any length of time. But, through all those attempts, we are improving.The video above covers the Sikorsky Prize for human-powered helicopter flight (we covered last year as well). The prize, which was set in 1980, will be awarded to the team that can fly a heavier-than-air machine, solely with human-provided power, with no energy storage devices (springs, rubber bands, etc.) for one full minute. During that minute the craft will not be able to leave a 10 square meter box, and at one point its bottom will have to exceed 3 meters in height. There is no limit to the number of people who can power it, through at least one of them cannot rotate. Being a helicopter, the machine must be capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL).The current prize is $250,000, so while this isn’t something you’d do for the money, it is a reasonable pastime for young aerospace engineers and (at least) one of their flyweight cyclist friends. The video runs through two attempts at the prize, in the first of which Kyle Gluesenkamp flies a quadcopter about 8 feet into the air. Ultimately the height ended up being more of a challenge than the duration, though the sustained sprint is clearly a limitation to the helicopter’s abilities.It’s not entirely clear why the team was able to get to 8 feet after a previously going just 3.5, but they were thrilled with the progress. It does not appear that the hand and foot pedals have any gearing (likely to save weight and complexity) though that seems like it would be a logical step, if it could be done without interruption to the pedaling. The use of both hand and foot cranks could prevent this, so it’s possible that the added power and endurance provided by the arms is more of an advantage than gearing.Another team, from the University of Maryland, was able to get their craft up to the 9-foot mark, but the record remained intact. Surely, within a brief matter of time, we’ll see this record broken and bigger things being done in human-powered aviation.More at NPR.last_img read more

Opera Beta for Android debuts Webkit engine and OffRoad modeOpera Beta for Android debuts Webkit engine and OffRoad mode

first_imgOpera Beta is the company’s third browser to arrive in the Google Play app store, but it’s the first one to make the switch to the Webkit rendering engine. Opera’s other browsers will all eventually join Chrome and Safari in running Webkit, a move that’s drawn praise from some and jeers from others. Fears of browsing engine duopolies aside, the new Opera Beta is — as Opera itself puts it — the company’s best browser for Android.While the engine has changed, key features remain intact. You’ll still find the bandwidth-saving Opera Turbo feature, but it’s been renamed Off-Road mode. The name switch makes sense, since Opera Beta generally performs much better than its Android siblings when compression is disabled. In effect, Webkit and V8 already have Opera Beta running at Turbo speeds. Off-Road is a nice, non-techy description of when Opera’s server-side compression tech will help you out — when you’re slogging through a slow data pipe, off the beaten path of your familiar, high-bandwidth connection. You’ll find the Off-Road toggle under the Opera menu at the top of the app, along with actions like sharing and browsing your history.Opera’s trademark Speed Dial page still appears when you open up a new tab, and there’s a new icon that appears which lets you quickly access any pages you’ve saved for offline reading. Content discovery also features prominently, and it’s available with a flick to the left (and also under the red O menu). Pull up the page and you’ll be presented with stories from across the web that suit your interests. It’s configurable, of course. Just tap the gear icon on the discovery page and you can change your preferred country and switch topics off and on. There are 13 in total, covering everything from the arts and sports to science and travel.The Opera Beta app has a long way to go before it’s ready to be anyone’s daily browser. At times pages load in odd chunks, and it can be a jarring experience if you read at a brisk pace — scrolling down into a large, black void only to see content appear a split second later. Gesture controls like pinch-to-zoom and panning are generally smooth, though, and pages do seem to render more quickly than they do in Opera’s Presto-powered Android apps.Long time Opera users should be aware that Opera Link hasn’t been built in to the browser yet, either. There’s a button that will take you to Opera’s web login so that you can browse through your saved data there, but no direct synchronization functionality appears to have been enabled yet.It’s a good first step for Opera in its evolution toward a more feature-focused mobile browser — and that’s precisely what the company was going for when it decided to make the jump to Webkit.last_img read more

Rumors are rumors,” he as quoted by Four Four Two.“Fortunately, there are many veteran players at Bayern and we know how to deal with this.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We try to work in order to change this situation and move forward,” he explained.“We have to work with what we have now. Speculating on the future achieves nothing.”“We started the season well, winning convincingly our first official seven games,” Thiago added.“After the [September] international break, we returned, and the team was a bit tired.”“We go out looking to get a result, but we concede after 10 minutes and then it’s like a bad nightmare, you think ‘s*** not again’ and after that, it all goes badly,” he commented.“From then on, you are in recovery mode.

San Diego Zoo bids bon voyage to Giant Panda PatriarchSan Diego Zoo bids bon voyage to Giant Panda Patriarch

first_img KUSI Newsroom San Diego Zoo bids bon voyage to Giant Panda Patriarch New Phase of Conservation Program Begins as Gao Gao Returns to China SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Zoo said goodbye Tuesday to a giant panda named Gao Gao, sending him back to his homeland as part of a research loan agreement with the People’s Republic of China.Gao Gao fathered five cubs during his 15 years in San Diego. He was born in the wild in China around 1990 and was taken in by researchers after he sustained injuries that resulted in the loss of part of his left ear. He spent time in the Fengtongzhai Nature Reserve and the Wolong Panda Conservation Center before being brought to the San Diego Zoo in 2003.Gao Gao is headed to the Chinese Center for Research and Conservation for the Giant Panda in Dujiangyan. Animal caretakers from San Diego Zoo Global plan to assist their counterparts at the CCRCGP help acclimate the panda to his new home.“Preparations to move any animal internationally takes a great deal of planning, where the needs of the animal are considered in all preparations,” said San Diego Zoo Senior Keeper Kathy Hawk. “For Gao Gao, it was important that we acclimate him to travel accommodations, adjust his diet and monitor him carefully, to provide him a seamless transition for repatriation to his homeland.”The zoo began an international partnership roughly 25 years ago with the CCRCGP, the China Wildlife Conservation Association and the Chinese Academy of Sciences to further giant panda research and conservation. Due to the success of the partnership, the International Union for Conservation of Nature downgraded the giant panda’s classification from endangered to vulnerable. According to zoo officials, there are roughly 2,000 giant pandas in the wild Tuesday, whereas there were fewer than 1,000 in the wild prior to the zoo’s research collaboration.“Thanks to the work we’ve done, we have met the initial conservation goals we set more than 25 years ago,” said Carmi Penny, the zoo’s director of Collections Husbandry Science. “Now, we must look to the future with a new set of objectives and, along with our collaborators in China, build on current conservation successes while attaining a deeper understanding of the panda.” Show Caption Hide Caption Show Caption Hide Caption Posted: October 30, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Show Caption Hide Caption Updated: 2:04 PMcenter_img 1234 Show Caption Hide Caption Show Caption Hide Caption Photos by Mollie Rivera.The San Diego Zoo’s press release announcing the move is below:The San Diego Zoo said farewell today (Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018) to one of its most iconic animals. Giant Panda Gao Gao (pronounced Gow Gow), a male panda and father of five cubs born at the Zoo, began his journey this morning to the Chinese Center for Research and Conservation for the Giant Panda (CCRCGP) in Dujiangyan, China—in keeping with the current panda research loan agreement with the People’s Republic of China.Gao Gao was transported in his crate and accompanied by a few familiar members of his animal care team, including a veterinarian and keeper staff. Once he arrives in Dujiangyan, team members from both CCRCGP and San Diego Zoo Global will work together to get Gao Gao acclimated to his new surroundings.“Preparations to move any animal internationally takes a great deal of planning, where the needs of the animal are considered in all preparations,” said Kathy Hawk, senior keeper at the San Diego Zoo. “For Gao Gao, it was important that we acclimate him to travel accommodations, adjust his diet and monitor him carefully, to provide him a seamless transition for repatriation to his homeland.”Gao Gao’s return to China comes at the same time the Zoo’s giant panda conservation program enters a new chapter, in which the Zoo, along with colleagues in China, are working to determine and redefine the future of panda conservation and research. Decades ago, when San Diego Zoo Global started working with giant pandas, the species was on the verge of extinction. The Zoo became part of an international collaboration that included CCRCGP, the China Wildlife Conservation Association, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and other accredited zoos and conservation organizations, in an unprecedented effort to prevent a panda extinction event.Now, 25 years later, researchers and keepers have learned a great deal about panda behavior, pregnancy, births, and maternal and geriatric care. Today, the giant panda population is on the rise, with nearly 2,000 giant pandas existing in the wild. Their increased numbers, along with policies put in place by the Chinese government, led the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species to downlist pandas—from Endangered to Vulnerable—meaning that while threats to pandas’ survival remain high, indicators show the species is in less danger of extinction than before, and that conservation efforts are working. In the wake of this accomplishment, conservationists are now determined to create a plan to continue the conservation momentum.“Thanks to the work we’ve done, we have met the initial conservation goals we set more than 25 years ago,” said Carmi Penny, director of Collections Husbandry Science at the San Diego Zoo. “Now, we must look to the future with a new set of objectives and, along with our collaborators in China, build on current conservation successes while attaining a deeper understanding of the panda.”Guests can visit the Zoo’s other two giant pandas, 27-year-old Bai Yun (pronounced bye yoon) and her 6-year-old son Xiao Liwu (pronounced sshyaoww lee woo) in their exhibit in Panda Canyon.Bringing species back from the brink of extinction is the goal of San Diego Zoo Global. As a leader in conservation, the work of San Diego Zoo Global includes on-site wildlife conservation efforts (representing both plants and animals) at the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, as well as international field programs on six continents. The work of these entities is inspiring children through the San Diego Zoo Kids network, reaching out through the internet and in children’s hospitals nationwide. The work of San Diego Zoo Global is made possible by the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy and is supported in part by the Foundation of San Diego Zoo Global.

The company laid out a detailed record of communication with Apple (for instance, on Oct. 6: “Apple removes the OurPact child app from the App Store without any prior communication”). OurPact also sought to explain what MDM software is by contradicting Apple’s recent statements with the iPhone maker’s own documentation about the technology. “Unfortunately, Apple’s statement is misleading and prevents a constructive conversation around the future of parental controls on iOS,” the company wrote. “Our hope is that Apple will work with developers in this space so that families continue to have a wide selection of parental controls to choose from.”Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.  0 OurPact’s parental-control app has been removed from Apple’s App Store. OurPact One of the parental-control apps removed from the App Store fired back on Wednesday at Apple’s explanation of why the app was banned.OurPact argued that its app should be reinstated and should be allowed to use technology that enables parents to control what their children access on their Apple devices. A report in The New York Times from Saturday said that in the past year, Apple has targeted 11 of the 17 most downloaded third-party apps designed to help phone users limit screen time or oversee their children’s phone use. Apple either removed the apps from the App Store outright or restricted them in some way, the Times said. That included OurPact, which the Times said is the top parental-control iPhone app, with more than 3 million downloads. The Times said OurPact makes about 80% of its revenue from the App Store. Apple on Sunday published a statement in its newsroom, saying it recently removed several parental-control apps from the App Store because “they put users’ privacy and security at risk.” Over the past year, Apple said, it became aware that several of the apps utilized mobile device management (MDM) software. This “gives a third party control and access over a device and its most sensitive information including user location, app use, email accounts, camera permissions and browsing history.” Apple said it was a violation of App Store guidelines. Apple’s statement is misleading and prevents a constructive conversation around the future of parental controls on iOS. OurPact OurPact said it’s committed to data protection and user privacy. It doesn’t sell or provide user data to third parties, the company said. It does, however, use MDM technology, OurPact said, “to give parents more freedom to manage their children’s mobile devices.” The company said its core functionality wouldn’t be possible without MDM, and from February 2015 until October 2018, Apple had approved the use of MDM in its app 37 times.”It is the only API available for the Apple platform that enables the remote management of applications and functions on children’s devices,” OurPact said. “We have also been transparent about our use of this technology since the outset, and have documented its use in our submissions to the App Store.”center_img The company added that there’s no way for a maker of a parental-control app to remove MDM functionality and still have a working product. It noted that during a conversation with Apple, the tech giant said it wouldn’t allow apps that block other apps. A key part of parental-control apps is allowing caregivers to limit what apps their children access and how often they use them. “If Apple offered alternate APIs to achieve the robust parental controls that OurPact provides we would happily use them,” OurPact wrote. “Unfortunately, no such API exists. All attempts to open a dialogue with Apple to create those APIs have also been refused.”The company asked that Apple reinstate its app.”If Apple truly believes that parents should have tools to manage their children’s device usage, and are committed to providing a competitive, innovative app ecosystem, then they will also provide open API’s for developers to utilize,” OurPact said. “Now, more than ever, the focus should be on building better and more diverse solutions for families to choose from.” • Boost Mobile Monitoring screen timeThe iPhone maker introduced its own screen-time and parental-control features last year when it unveiled iOS 12, the most recent major update to its mobile operating system. Last week, CEO Tim Cook discussed screen addiction at the Time 100 Summit in New York.Apple’s Screen Time feature followed backlash from investors and users over concerns about phone addiction among children. Two of Apple’s major shareholders published an open letter in January 2018 that asked Apple to take a socially responsible approach toward children’s interactions with devices. It cited concerns about mental health problems and other issues that come from heavy phone use. The Times report on Saturday said the makers of two of the App Store’s most popular parental-control apps filed a complaint Thursday with the European Union’s competition office, with one saying Apple compelled it to alter its app in ways that made it less effective than Apple’s parental controls.Parental MDMMDM software is often used by businesses to easily manage and control their employees’ devices, but Apple said that in mid-2017 it updated its guidelines about the use of MDM for nonenterprise purposes.”It is incredibly risky — and a clear violation of App Store policies — for a private, consumer-focused app business to install MDM control over a customer’s device,” Apple said in Sunday’s statement. “Beyond the control that the app itself can exert over the user’s device, research has shown that MDM profiles could be used by hackers to gain access for malicious purposes.”Apple said it gave the app developers 30 days to fix the guideline violations. Several did, but the others that didn’t had their apps removed from the App Store, Apple said. In its blog post Wednesday, OurPact said it didn’t receive any notice before its app was removed by Apple. It is incredibly risky for a private, consumer-focused app business to install MDM control over a customer’s device. Apple iOS 12 Apple CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Condom Olympic logo on kids poster leaves Karnatakas youth sports department redfacedCondom Olympic logo on kids poster leaves Karnatakas youth sports department redfaced

first_img All Awarded Medals At Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Will Be Made From Recycled Electronics ReutersKarnataka’s sports department landed in a very awkward situation after the state’s Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports (DYES) released posters for children with a condom-ringed Olympic logo on it. The posters encouraged children to join a summer sports camp which was taking place from April 15 to May 5. The condom ringed Olympic logo was featured on the poster with the words ‘First Step Towards Olympics’ written underneath it. The gaffe was first noticed by athletes who complained to the concerned authorities. The incident came to light on April 27, Saturday.The poster was meant for children aged 8 to 16 for a summer camp at the Sri Kanteerava stadium and the Koramangala stadium in Bengaluru. After the complaints, they removed the posters at both the stadiums, reports Times of India. The complainants demanded the sports minister to take strict action against whoever was responsible for the blunder.”These were small posters and it was a genuine mistake. We have already removed the posters and will take action against those responsible for this,” DYES officials were quoted as saying by TOI.A former sportsperson said that the person who made the poster probably did not realise the condom ring Olympic logo when he was making it but it “became rather obvious when the actual A3-size posters were printed and posted at both the venues, inviting children for the camps.”A private printing press was given the task of making the poster. They had taken the image from the internet. However, it was discovered that the condom ring Olympic logo will feature in search results only when it is specifically searched.The condom Olympic ring logo became famous in 2012 and 2016 when news broke out that participants were carrying condoms in the Games Village.

uncovered–even the unproven ones–so it’s no surprise the company is working on a Google Glass competitor While Samsung hasn’t exactly confirmed its plans an unnamed “Samsung associate” told Business Korea that the company’s version of high-tech glasses will be revealed at a September trade show A Samsung associate let on "We rolled out the smartwatch first and have secured a considerable amount of smart glass-related technology and patents Following the roll out of our smart watch Galaxy Gear in September last year we are slated to introduce our smart glass Gear Glass this September" Details are scarce but the glasses will reportedly run Tizen the same operating system Samsung uses in its latest Galaxy Gear smartwatches That probably means you’ll be able to answer phone calls view text

charges $1500 for a prototype version of Glass but research firm IHS guesses the bill of materials and manufacturing comes to just $152 (Google told the Wall Street Journal that estimate is “wildly off”) While it’s unclear if there’s much of a market for face computers Gear Glass would fit Samsung’s recent tendency to charge into new product categories if only to plant a flag The company

Gujarat which was the epicentre of the 2015 Patidar protests With the Congress in disarray BJP chief Amit Shah’s "Mission 150"— setting a target of 150 Assembly seats for the Gujarat unit of BJP — seems on the right track: For now Correction appended Sept 26 Lexie a Labrador mix was barking in fear when the police arrived at her owner’s suburban Detroit house early in the morning last November The officers responding to a call about a dog roaming the area arrived with dog-catching gear Yet they didn’t help the one-year-old dog who had been left outside the house according to a lawsuit filed in federal court: Instead they pulled out their guns and shot Lexie eight times “The only thing Im gonna do is shoot it anyway” the lawsuit quotes an officer saying “I do not like dogs” Such a response animal advocates say is not uncommon among law enforcement officers in America who are often ill-equipped to deal with animals in the line of duty And now bereaved owners like Brittany Preston Lexie’s owner are suing cities and police departments expressing outrage at what they see as an abuse of power by police Animal activists meanwhile are turning to state legislatures to combat the problem with demands for better police training in dealing with pets There are no official tallies of dog killings by police but media reports suggest there are at minimum dozens every year and possibly many more When it comes to Preston’s dog officials from the city of St Clair Shores and the dog owner agree on little City police say the dog attacked prompting officers to open fire in self-defense But the lawsuit filed by Preston cites police audio recordings to argue that the November 2013 shooting was premeditated prompted by officers eager to kill a dog Preston is suing the city for violating her Fourth Amendment right to protection from unreasonable search and seizure “We want whatever it takes to make sure it doesnt happen again” said Christopher Olson Preston’s lawyer “Before this case I wasnt a dog shooting lawyer but I am now” St Clair Shores defended the officers’ actions “The animal was only put down after a decision was made that it was in the best interest of the residents” said city attorney Robert Ihrie who is defending the city in the lawsuit “Sometimes police officers are in a position where they need to make very quick decisions for the protection of themselves and others” The Fourth Amendment argument gained traction in 2005 when the San Jose chapter of the Hells Angels sued the city and the police department because officers had killed dogs during a gang raid in 1998 A federal appeals judge found that “the Fourth Amendment forbids the killing of a persons dog… when that destruction is unnecessary” and the Hells Angels ultimately won $18 million in damages In addition to the St Clair lawsuit other lawsuits stemming from police shootings of dogs are being planned or filed in Idaho California and Nevada At the same time animal-rights activists are lobbying police departments to implement pet training for all officers Several states including Illinois and Colorado have enacted measures to reduce dog shootings and others states are considering legislation In 2011 the Department of Justice published a report on dog-related police incidents which included advice on how to handle dogs without killing them "Its much more likely that a cop is going to encounter a dog than a terrorist yet theres no training" said Ledy Van Kavage an attorney for the advocacy group Best Friends Animal Society “If you have a fear or hatred of dogs then you shouldn’t be a police officer just like if you have a hatred of different social groups” Brian Kilcommons a professional dog-trainer who has trained more than 40000 dogs and published books on the subject said some police officers accidentally antagonize dogs right from the start without even trying “Police officers go into a situation with full testosterone body language trying to control the situation" he said "Thats exactly what will set a dog off" Kilcommons is developing an app that could help police officers evaluate the best way to handle a dog including tips on reading body language and non-lethal strategies for containing them “A bag of treats goes a long way” he said But Jim Crosby a retired Lieutenant with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in Florida who now works in dog training said there are sometimes cases that require police force “If you’re executing a high-risk hard-going entry with an armed suspect the officers dont have time to play nice and throw cookies at the dog” said Crosby who was commenting on police handling of dogs in general and not any specific case But he emphasized that such situations are few and far between: “Police absolutely have the right to protect themselves against a reasonable and viable threatbut the presence of a dog is not necessarily a reasonable or viable threat” Ronald Janota a retired Lieutenant Colonel with the Illinois State Police who now serves as an expert witness on use of force acknowledged that officers are often at “heightened awareness” when confronting dogs “If you’re the first or second through the door you don’t have time to put a collar on the dog if the dog is literally lunging at you” he said “If you’re entering the house legally you have the right to protect yourself” Regardless of the circumstances a dog’s death at the hands of police can be devastating to owners "People are getting married later if at all people are having children later if at all and pets are filling an emotional niche" Kilcommons said "Before if you had a dog and it got killed you got another one Now dogs are in our homes and in our hearts Theyre not replaceable So when theyre injured or killed people are retaliating" In St Clair Shores where Lexie died the city is fighting the lawsuit but the police department now requires its officers to undergo animal control training Van Kavage said that kind of training is crucial even if just to instill a sense of trust in the police “If a cop shoots your pet do you think youre ever going to trust a cop again” she said “To control a dog 99% of the time you dont need a gun You just need to yell ‘sit’ ‘stay’" Correction: The original version of this story misidentified the person who said “To control a dog 99% of the time you dont need a gun You just need to yell ‘sit’ ‘stay’" It was Ledy Van Kavage Write to Charlotte Alter at charlottealter@timecom and Justin Worland at justinworland@timecom The woman’s father Twitter@INCIndia The
