Hannah Anderson didn´t know mom,
brother were killed, sheriff says

Los Angeles Times, by Tony Perry and Kate Mather

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 8/12/2013 2:02:31 PM

San Diego County teen Hannah Anderson was not aware that her mother and brother had been killed as she was driven across several states and into the Idaho wilderness, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said Monday. Gore also said that the 16-year-old girl was being held "under duress" by James Lee DiMaggio. Gore´s comments are the first definitive indication that Hannah Anderson did not accompany DiMaggio willingly. Gore has scheduled a news conference for 2:30 p.m. in San Diego County. The girl´s father, Brett Anderson, and FBI officials are also expected to attend.

FTA: "Gore has scheduled a news conference for 2:30 p.m. in San Diego County. The girl´s father, Brett Anderson, and FBI officials are also expected to attend."

Didn´t her father go to Idaho? Is she still in Idaho, or back in San Diego? I can´t get that from the several articles I´ve read. I can´t imagine that the father wouldn´t have been on the first plane out when news came that she had been rescued. Maybe I´m missing something.

I had it figured that maybe DiMaggio had told her --or showed her proof, that he had killed the mother and brother and threatened her if she didn´t go with him; a Stockholm Syndrome type thing.

Interesting that one of the "rescuers" --one of the ones who spotted DiMaggio and reported the sighting, is a retired sheriff.

The Top Ten Books
People Lie About Reading

Have you ever lied about reading a book? Maybe you didn’t want to seem stupid in front of someone you respected. Maybe you rationalized it by reasoning that you had a familiarity with the book, or knew who the author was, or what the story was about, or had glanced at its Wikipedia page. Or maybe you had tried to read the book, even bought it and set it by your bed for months unopened, hoping that it would impart what was in it merely via proximity (if that worked, please email me).

Jeff Zucker´s first foray into the press tour´s cocktail circuit with his new network saw Anderson Cooper, Piers Morgan, Wolf Blitzer and Christiane Amanpour mingling mostly with each other at the Friday bash in Pasadena. (Snip)CNN rolled out the red carpet for the Television Critics Association the evening of Jan. 10, though many critics and reporters didn´t bother showing up for the news network. The late-Friday affair on the Langham hotel´s pool deck in Pasadena was poorly attended, at least during the early part of the event.

´Net neutrality´ ruling could be costly
for consumers, advocates say
Los Angeles Times, by Chris O´Brien*    Original Article

A federal appeals court swept aside government regulations designed to ensure equal access to the Internet, raising the prospects of higher fees for consumers and more barriers for start-ups seeking to compete online. The decision Tuesday could allow AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and other Internet service providers to charge the likes of Netflix and YouTube more money to deliver movies and video to their customers. The ruling also throws into disarray the efforts of the Federal Communications Commission to limit telecom and cable firms from discriminating against certain Internet traffic by slowing speeds, impeding access or raising fees.

Anthony Bosch, the key witness in Major League Baseball´s case against Alex Rodriguez, described in detail during a "60 minutes" interview how he provided an array of performance-enhancing drugs to the New York Yankees third baseman and helped the suspended player use them. Bosch, founder of the now-defunct Florida anti-aging clinic Biogenesis of America, told CBS´ Scott Pelley in an interview that aired Sunday that Rodriguez paid particular attention to the types of drugs and dosages needed to bolster his performance. Testosterone and human growth hormone were among the banned substances he provided, Bosch said. Bosch said that Rodriguez spent approximately $12,000

Woody Allen´s biological son thinks Diane Keaton´s fawning acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award on Woody´s behalf lacked one material fact -- that he allegedly fondled his 7-year-old adopted daughter. Ronan Farrow -- who´s mother Mia Farrow split from Woody after she learned he was having an affair with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi -- tweeted this after Keaton´s speech at the Golden Globes: "Missed the Woody Allen tribute -- did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?"

Chris Christie faces probe for alleged
misuse of Sandy funds: source

U.S. investigators are looking into whether embattled New Jersey Governor Chris Christie misused about $2 million in Superstorm Sandy relief funds for an ad campaign that put him in the spotlight in an election year, a lawmaker said on Monday. Already enmeshed in a scandal over snarled traffic at the George Washington Bridge, Christie, a rising star in the Republican party, is now being audited by the Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone Jr., a Democrat. The inspector is focusing on a federally financed $25 million Jersey Shore marketing campaign that

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- Sitting in his office in a cold, overcast New York City, former President Bill Clinton laughs that at one time he didn´t understand the allure of Southern California. "When I was a kid, we had a lot of retirees in Arkansas because they liked to come down from the Midwest because it was basically warm, but we still had four seasons," Clinton recalled. "I could never figure out why people went to Southern California and Florida to retire. I get it now." Clinton said he can´t wait to get to the desert this week, both for

The good feelings between the 49ers and Seahawks could never last. Fans from both teams decided to donate money to children’s hospitals in Seattle and San Francisco last week. Now, the Seahawks are limiting ticket sales to just six states and the Canadian Provinces. Only credit cards with addresses from Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii will be allowed to buy tickets to Sunday’s NFC Championship between the 49ers and Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. That’s it. Please notice that California was not on that list.(Snip)Niner fans are known for traveling. This season several road stadiums were packed

Iran would receive the first $550 million installment of a total of $4.2 billion in previously blocked overseas funds on or about February 1, a senior U.S. official said on Sunday. Under a November 24 nuclear agreement, six major powers agreed to give Iran access to $4.2 billion in revenues blocked overseas if it carries out the deal, which offers sanctions relief in exchange for steps to curb the Iranian nuclear program. Some payments are contingent on Iran diluting its stockpile of 20 percent enriched uranium to no more than 5 percent enriched uranium. The U.S. official, who spoke on

California farms lead the way
in almond production
Los Angeles Times, by David Pierson    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/12/2014 12:04:36 PM     Post Reply
One of California´s top ambassadors often comes lightly salted and travels in a vacuum-sealed can. Eat an almond anywhere in the world and chances are that it was grown in the Golden State. California produces 82% of the globe´s almonds, harvesting about 800,000 acres of the tree nut across a 400-mile stretch from northern Tehama County to southern Kern County. Fueling the boom is robust foreign demand, particularly from emerging consumer markets like China and India, where the industry has been promoting almonds as a healthful snack. About 70% of California´s almonds are sold overseas. That made the crunchy nut

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is refereeing a politically charged dispute between President Barack Obama and Senate Republicans over the president´s power to temporarily fill high-level positions. The case being argued at the high court Monday is the first in the nation´s history to consider the meaning of the provision of the Constitution that allows the president to make temporary appointments to positions that otherwise require Senate confirmation, but only when the Senate is in recess. The court battle is an outgrowth of increasing partisanship and the political stalemate that´s been a hallmark of Washington for years, and especially since Obama took

President Obama’s speech on NSA reform had all the hallmarks of his administration—and, not coincidentally, of his hyper-analytical, aloof, and cerebral personality. The endless, quasi-public policy review? Check. Lengthy consultations with a vast variety of experts? Check. (“I’ve listened to foreign partners, privacy advocates, and industry leaders. My administration has spent countless hours considering how to approach intelligence in this era of diffuse threats and technological revolution.”) The rhetorical genuflections to appear fair to both sides.

This week’s Time magazine splashes the question on its cover: “Can Anyone Stop Hillary?” The Weekly Standard is happy to provide our friends at Time with an answer to their query: Yes. Hillary Clinton can be stopped. How? Let us count the ways. The easiest way Hillary can be stopped is if she stops herself. She can choose not to run. Indeed, Time reports “on good authority” that “Hillary Clinton has not decided whether to run for president again.” There is a reasonable chance she’ll decide not to. She’s an intelligent woman. She remembers that her last experience of running

On the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving, Barack Obama sat in the office cabin of Air Force One wearing a look of heavy-lidded annoyance. The Affordable Care Act, his signature domestic achievement and, for all its limitations, the most ambitious social legislation since the Great Society, half a century ago, was in jeopardy. His approval rating was down to forty per cent—lower than George W. Bush’s in December of 2005, when Bush admitted that the decision to invade Iraq had been based on intelligence that “turned out to be wrong.” Also, Obama said thickly, “I’ve got a fat lip.” That morning,

Late Thursday afternoon, the Senate passed a $1.1 trillion spending measure that´s best described as a fix -- fix, as in an act of Republican perfidy and chicanery. The process was rigged by Speaker Boehner and Senate Minority Leader McConnell (doubtless with a wink and a nod from Harry Reid) to push through the gargantuan spending measure while giving House and Senate Republicans cover on ObamaCare funding. The bill was an incomprehensible 1,582 pages. Here´s how it worked. House Republicans passed the spending bill with a provision to strip funding from ObamaCare. In the Senate, Harry Reid used rules to

A federal commission rejected three states’ requests to ask voters for proof of citizenship, issuing a complex decision Friday that said it’s up to the national government, not the states, to decide what to include on registration forms. Under the motor-voter law, federal officials distribute voter-registration forms in all of the states. Arizona, Kansas and Georgia all asked that those forms request proof of citizenship, but the federal Election Assistance Commission rejected that in a 46-page ruling. The EAC said states can check driver’s license databases or ask federal immigration authorities for information, but they cannot tell the federal government

An 11-year-old guitar prodigy from Nebraska stopped by Fox and Friends this morning to do some live shredding in the studio. The world found about Aidan Fisher´s amazing talents after he was invited up on stage at a Steel Panther concert in Kansas City. The band´s guitarist, Satchel, actually met Fisher and his dad at a hotel before the show. Fisher had already planned to go to the concert with a sign challenging Satchel to an on-stage solo duel.

(Video) Pennsylvania’s voter ID law, among the nation’s most stringent, was struck down Friday morning by a state judge. Commonwealth Court Judge Bernard L. McGinley ruled that the law, requiring almost all voters to present photo identification prior to voting, was an unreasonable burden on voters. He said the free voter ID that residents were entitled to under the law was insufficiently available, only at 71 drivers license centers located across the state. Several counties had no such centers and others were only open two days a week, leading McGinley to rule that the law “unnecessarily burden[s] the hundreds of thousands

A bipartisan Senate intelligence committee report on Benghazi was released this week, which placed blame on the State Department and intelligence agencies for the failures that led to the death of four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012. Discussing the report’s findings with Piers Morgan, Sen. John McCain laid into the State Department and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for their mishandling of the situation—but that’s when things took a rather unusual turn. Morgan actually attempted to deflect some of the blame to Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed during the attack:

Officials have been scouting space for New York City’s new first lady, who described herself as a “sounding board and partner” to her husband during his campaign and transition to mayor, a source said. And the administration has been working on a portfolio of issues for McCray to tackle, ­another source said.
