An officer tried to get the student to leave voluntarily, then ordered her to do so.She refused to cooperate, Vasquez said, and the officer arrested her and placed her in handcuffs.“As they were walking, the student became non-compliant on two separate occasions and made an attempt to free herself by pulling away from the officer,” Vasquez said. “To prevent the student from escaping, the officer forced the student to the ground.”Neither video posted on Facebook clearly shows what led up to the slam, but both show the officer throw the girl across his body from left to right, with her upper body slamming onto the concrete first. The officer then pins the girl on the ground with his upper body for several seconds as the teen appears to lay motionless on the ground, then rolls her to her side.“After the student agreed to quit resisting and attempting to escape, the officer assisted her up and walked her to his patrol vehicle,” Vasquez said.The student received “minor abrasions” in the incident, Vasquez said. She was taken to the La Mesa Police Department, where she was evaluated by paramedics and determined not to require treatment.Around 8 a.m. today, students at the La Mesa high school began walking out of their classrooms and gathering near the front entrance of the school. One student held a sign that read, “We’re anti-police brutality, not anti-police.”Aeiramique Blake, whose sister attends Helix and who said she was a spokeswoman for the family of the girl slammed by the officer, told KUSI that students and community members are demanding the officer be removed from his position on campus.“He never needs to work with kids again,” Blake said. “We’re tired of police justifying the abuse they do to our youth.”Outside the school this morning and in an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Blake contested the police version of events. She told the Union-Tribune that the student was allowed to be on campus while assigned to in-school suspension, but the 17-year-old had a conflict with an instructor who accused her of being on drugs. Blake said that when the instructor searched thegirl’s backpack, no drugs were found, but the teen had pepper spray.The student said she carried pepper spray for protection because she rides the trolley to school from southeast San Diego, but the teacher told her she’d have to leave campus because she brought a weapon, Blake said. When the girl refused to leave, the instructor called police.“No matter what was done or not done, that was not the appropriate way to handle a young lady,” Blake told the newspaper. “The community is completely outraged.”Police are aware of and in possession of a video of the student being slammed to the ground, Vasquez said.“As is protocol with all incidents involving use of force, the La Mesa Police Department will be conducting a detailed review of the force used and of the entire incident,” the police chief said. “Helix High School officials are also fully aware of the facts surrounding the incident.” Elizabeth Alvarez Updated: 4:04 PM Posted: January 22, 2018 La Mesa Police Officer slams 17 year old to ground at Helix High, students protest Elizabeth Alvarez, January 22, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Helix Charter HS, La Mesa Police FacebookTwitter

Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Gaming The Konami TurboGrafx-16 mini game console harkens back to the company’s 1980s home game console. Konami Konami Digital Entertainment on Tuesday took the wraps off the TurboGrafx-16 mini. The gaming console is a compact version of the company’s 1980s version.The console is small enough to fit into gamers’ palms but comes with a full-size controller, the Japanese game giant said Tuesday at the E3 game expo in Los Angeles. The console will come preloaded with an initial handful of retro-like games, including R-Type, New Adventure Island, Ninja Spirit, Ys Book I & II, Dungeon Explorer and Alien Crush.The TurboGrafx-16 mini will be released in North America, while variants called PC Engine Core Grafx and PC Engine mini will be released in Europe and Japan, respectively. Details about pricing, availability and additional games planned weren’t made available. TurboGrafx-16 was a cartridge-based home video game released in the US in 1989. Competing with the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, it featured an 8-bit CPU and an optional add-on that stored the games on CD-ROM. The line was discontinued in 1994. $520 at HP Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go.

As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening.

Representational Image: PixabayA theatre artist in Hyderabad was arrested on Tuesday for harassing his students during a workshop. He was arrested by the Narayanaguda police in the city but was let out on bail later in the day.According to the 21-year-old woman in his workshop who filed the complaint, Vinay Varma, the accused had told the students attending the workshop that they should remove their clothes as part of an exercise or get out of the class, reports The News Minute.The incident came to light on April 15, Monday, when the complainant got in touch with the SHE team in Hyderabad and narrated her ordeal to them. She said that there were seven men and two women. Varma, who runs the Sutradhar acting school, had ordered them to strip naked as part of an exercise and when they showed some hesitation, he asked them to get out of class.”After we finished doing meditation, he walked in, closed the windows and doors, and asked us to remove our clothes. We were looking at each other, then he shouted, ‘remove your clothes or leave the class’. Then immediately, the boys obeyed him and removed their clothes. He asked them to remove their undergarments as well,” the complainant was quoted as saying by TNM.Varma defended his actions saying that this exercise is a part of every workshop. If the students are not comfortable, they are told to stand outside the room. “This is part of the acting exercise where we mould them (students) and test if they’re able to do it. The students who can’t do it are told to stand outside the class,” Varma had told TNM.However, when he was asked if the students are aware of this particular exercise before signing up for the class or even attending it, he said, “We don’t tell what all training they’ll be going through. We never forced them. We are willing to reimburse the fee of those who can’t do it (remove clothes).”The SHE team informed the Narayanaguda police of incident who acted on it after the family of the complainant staged a protest outside the police station. The police charged Varma under sections 354 A (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation), 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Parineeti chopraVarinder ChawlaParineeti Chopra was recently spotted coming out of a salon. While shutterbugs were waiting outside to click her, the actress for some unknown reasons, was seen hiding her face.Wearing a black transparent top with trousers, Parineeti was seen in a hurry to enter her car, and escape the lens as soon as possible. A video has come out that shows her first rushing back into the salon as soon as she spotted paparazzi waiting outside.She then comes out, but quickly enters her car, and is seen desperately trying to hide her face with her hair and hands. The video is out on Instagram, and people are wondering what made her hide her face so desperately.While some suggested that the actress wanted to avoid being clicked as she was without make-up, some others thought there is something fishy about it. Nonetheless, it is only Parineeti who knows the reason behind her act.On the work front, she was recently seen in Kesari alongside Akshay Kumar. Although she had a small role in the film, the actress was glad to be a part of such a big project. Parineeti has a number of upcoming films in her kitty including Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Jabariya Jodi and Saina Nehwal biopic.Watch the video below:
This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 6 min read This story originally appeared on PCMag June 3, 2019 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Another year, another jam-packed new iOS release from Apple.The upcoming version of Apple’s mobile operating system — iOS 13 — is a faster, more privacy-focused mobile operating system, with new features and improvements across most of its core functionality.Onstage at WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference, SVP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi announced that the updated OS is significantly faster and more data-conscious, with a new app download packaging format that makes downloads 50 percent smaller and updates 60 percent smaller.Apps will also launch twice as fast, with 30 percent faster Face ID unlock. A new low data mode can be enabled in settings, too, while a QuickPath keyboard enables swipe-to-type functionality and Apple Music supports time-synced lyrics.Here’s what else you can expect from iOS 13, which will arrive this fall.Dark ModeFederighi shows off dark mode in iOS 13.Image Credit: Justin Sullivan | Getty ImagesOne of iOS 13’s headlining features is dark mode at an OS level rather than app level. The setting will darken the background across iOS, from Messages to Reminders to the home screen.Privacy, Privacy, PrivacyIf iOS 13 has another big theme, it’s privacy. The company is doubling down on its reputation for privacy in the latest mobile OS release by building in more data controls across the experience.For the first time, you can share your location with an app just once and then require permission the next time it wants it. Apple will also give you regular reports showing which apps are tracking you, and shut down loopholes like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi scanning. Oh, and iOS 13 will send unknown spam calls directly to voicemail.Apple is also taking aim once again at Facebook with Sign In with Apple, which gives users a fast, easy way to sign into apps without third-party social tracking. The sign-in button is authenticated with Face ID to log users in without revealing any new personal info.Going even further, Apple will also give users the option to hide their email and create a unique random address for each app that Apple will forward to your real email address.New privacy features extend to HomeKit, where a new service called HomeKit Secure Video will analyze security camera footage on-premises in an iPad, HomePod, or Apple TV device before encrypting and uploading footage privately to iCloud, where it will be stored for 10 days for users to review. Home security footage won’t count against iCloud data caps.Finally, Apple is working with partners inlcuding Linksys, Eero, and ISPs like Spectrum to release HomeKit-enabled home routers that will automatically firewall off smart home accessories for an additional layer of security.Maps, iMessage, and MemojiThere are also updates and improvements to many of the flagship iOS apps. There’s a new gallery view in Notes, an improved interface for Reminders, and improvements to Safari and Mail. However, some of the biggest additions are in Maps, messaging, and Memoji.In Apple Maps, there’s greater detail in everything from buildings to topography, which is rolling out in the US by the end of the year. A new Favorites bar at the bottom of the Maps home screen lets users tap and go to starred locations, as well as save points of interest into “Collections.” The top right of the map also shows a new binocular icon to open the “look-around window,” a Google Street View-like feature letting users tap around and explore locations in a high-def 3D view.On the Messages front, Apple is integrating animoji and memoji deeper into the experience. When users share names and photos, they will also have the option to share their animoji with each other to use as the contact photo, and customize them further with new makeup and accessory options, from hats and glasses to bespoke AirPods.Apple is taking aim at Snapchat as well with a new Bitmoji clone feature called Memoji Stickers to create and share sticker packs of your virutal avatar within Messages with one tap from the keyboard.Camera and PhotosApple always showcases camera and photos app improvements at WWDC, and this year is no different. In iOS 13, iPhone cameras can take advantage of a new Portrait lighting feature with high-key mono effect, where users can adjust lighting intensity by virtually moving a light closer or further away from a subject.Yet the biggest addition in the Camera app is the ability to edit videos. For the first time, iOS 13 users can rotate videos, and apply the same filters and effects as photos.The Photos app is being redesigned with machine learning to remove duplicates and clutter with a new pinch-to-zoom mode, plus a new organization tab at the bottom of the screen to sort photos into days, months, and years. The app will surface photos and organize days based on events you attended in past years, using ML to customize how your photo and video memories are displayed.SiriFinally, Apple announced improvements to Siri across iOS, from iPhones and AirPods to HomePod and CarPlay.When you’re wearing AirPods, Siri will now announce messages or incoming iMessages from other messaging apps. There’s also one-tap audio sharing, which you can send to other iOS users or to your HomePod, which is now enabled with Handoff.Siri on the HomePod will also now be able to recognize which user is talking and play music based on each speaker’s history and preferences. The smart speaker will also be able to play live music from more than 100,000 radio stations. On CarPlay, there’s a new dashboard that now works with third-party apps such as Pandora and Waze.Siri is also sporting a smoother, completely software-generated voice based on neural text-to-speech for more natrural cadence and emphasis, plus an improved Siri Shortcuts app now built into access shortcuts. This includes a new Suggested Automations feature to take your habits and personalize them with Siri. Enroll Now for Free
