Sex offenders fitted with GPS

first_imgPALMDALE – Satellite-tracking devices are being strapped on the ankles of 40 paroled rapists and other high-risk sex offenders in the Antelope Valley in the first use in Los Angeles County of GPS technology to keep track of sex offenders. A little bit bigger than a computer mouse and weighing about six ounces, the GPS device beams signals to an orbiting network of satellites that give state parole agents a computerized record of a parolee’s movements and, if he or she ventures to a school or playground or leaves the area within which he must stay, will transmit a text message alerting his parole agent. “We believe GPS will save the lives of children,” said state Sen. George Runner, R-Lancaster, who is pushing a November ballot measure that would mandate GPS tracking for life every sex offender leaving prison. GPS technology is already tracking parolees all across the United States. About 45 of the parolees fitted with the devices so far have been charged with violating parole for behavior including being in unauthorized areas such as amusement parks or being away from home after their curfews. In one case, a parolee was arrested after his GPS device tracked him to a high school campus and to outside a women’s locker room at the University of Redlands. Overall, Los Angeles County has some 11,400 registered sex offenders – enough so that a state Web site mapping each offender’s location with a blue dot shows solid blue stretching for miles across almost every area of the county. Of the county’s sex offenders, 391 are parolees recently released from prison and categorized by parole officials as high risk because of violence, multiple offenses, multiple victims, or other factors. Of the 391 high-risk sex offender parolees, 43 live in the Antelope Valley. That means the Antelope Valley has less than 4 percent of Los Angeles County’s population, but 11 percent of its high-risk sex offenders on parole. The Antelope Valley was picked as a pilot area for trying the devices in Los Angeles County after state officials in January agreed to stop sending parolees there unless they had valley connections predating their imprisonments. Department of Corrections spokeswoman Elaine Jennings said she expects GPS use in metropolitan Los Angeles to start later this year or early next year. “The Antelope Valley has had a concern about parolees. There was community involvement and we had good partners,” Jennings said. To hook up more parolees to GPS devices, the state is training more parole agents, because the main cost in tracking sex offenders is not the price tag for the device but the manpower for checking and analyzing parolees’ movements. “It’s high time we took back the streets of Los Angeles County from sex predators who are stalking our children, who have a repeat recidivism rate,” said Tony Bell, an aide to Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford said the Antelope Valley has been allowed to become home to too many parolees – nearly 2,000 of all sorts, or 6 percent of the county total – and he blamed Runner and his wife, Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, for not doing more to change the situation. Ledford called Thursday’s GPS announcement pre-election campaigning for Sharon Runner, whom Ledford is opposing in the June 6 Republican primary for her Assembly seat. “We are a dumping ground,” said Ledford. “You get the headlines at Disneyland, but this is where people live … We’re fed up.” The concern about sex offenders is statewide and nationwide. California’s parole chief, Jim L’Etoile, either resigned or was dismissed – officials won’t say which, citing personnel law – after revelations that paroled sex offenders were placed in motels and hotels near Disneyland. The placements violated no laws, but officials moved four parolees who lived in motels within a half-mile of the amusement park. The men all wore GPS devices. At the Nov. 7 election, California voters will vote on a measure called Jessica’s Law, named after a Florida girl who was abducted from her home and slain, that would require all paroled and newly registered sex offenders to wear an electronic tracking device for life. The law would also bar them from living any closer than 2,000 feet from schools and parks, meaning that many neighborhoods would be off-limits but also shifting offenders into other areas. chuck.bostwick@dailynews.com (661) 267-5742160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsA study in Florida, where GPS use began in 1998, found that sex offenders wearing the devices were less likely to commit new crimes or to disappear. The devices are not a panacea – they will not send a police officer racing to a school when a sex offender walks up to the fence – but they are a deterrent, said Peggy Conway, editor of the Journal of Offender Monitoring. “There is no anonymity to a crime. They can be put at the scene of a crime,” said Conway. “They know they will get caught.” At a cost of $8.45 a day each, California began using the GPS devices in a pilot program tracking high-risk sex offenders in San Diego County last July, and in October in Orange County. More than 400 are now in use in parts of California, with a state law approved last year boosting that to 2,500 over the next four years. last_img read more

Flatrock Passive: Foam Sheathing and Window Details

first_imgWe bought hemlock beams and posts from Nova Scotia because they weren’t available locally. Placing them was the end of a major milestone for the build — and the beginning of another! It was time to start sheathing the exterior with rigid foam.The rigid foam used on the outside of the walls is called Truewall, a Type I EPS foam that comes with slots for strapping. It is usually purchased with a thickness of less than 3 inches, which can accommodate 1×3 strapping, but it can be manufactured to meet any specifications. In our case, we wanted 3-inch-thick foam with slots for 2×4 strapping every 24 inches.I have tried several ways to cut foam. Depending on thickness, different methods work better than others. For thin foam, say 1 inch or less, I like using a utility knife. The blades are sharp, and you can work quickly with a straightedge. If the foam is greater than 1 inch thick, I find that a utility blade wanders. For really thick foam, 4 inches and up, a small, fine-toothed, handsaw works great. For foam between 2 and 3 inches thick, I find a broad knife (a putty knife) with the side of the blade parallel to the handle sharpened to a razor’s edge works the best (see Images #2 and #3, below). BLOGS BY DAVID GOODYEAR Framing and Air SealingA Well Insulated SlabFootings and Frost WallsA Final Design and Energy ModelingAn Introduction to the Flatrock Passive House You can use a straight piece of 2×4 lumber to guide the broad knife. Once the cut is scored part way through, the score will guide successive cuts without a straightedge as long as you work slowly. Adding a back damMost window manufacturers require some sort of sloped drainage plane at the sill of the window. I have seen this done with a piece of clapboard on the sill. The big issue here is that you need the buck to be airtight but you also need to flash it to the exterior. If you use clapboard it involves another step of making the clapboard airtight to the buck.My plans called for a back dam on all window openings. This is easy to do. I mark a line with a pencil, about 3 1/4 inches back from the outside edge of the buck to define the inside edge of my back dam material. I picked up some 1/4-inch thick (3/8 inches wide) self-adhering neoprene gasket material for this. Starting at one bottom corner of the buck I tape the gasket in place using my guide line.To ensure the taping detail will flash the window to the exterior Tyvek (when it gets applied), I staple a 12-inch piece of Tyvek flush to the top of the buck sill and out 8 inches beyond the edge of the jambs (see Image #5, below).Now comes the tape flashing detail which will also provide an airtight seal to the buck:(1) Precut pieces of flashing tape (6 inches of 3M-8067) 5 to 6 inches longer than the sill in order to make a pan flashing.(2) Place a small bead of acoustical sealant at the inside bottom corners of the buck.(3) Peel off about 2 to 3 inches of backer for the part of the tape to be stuck to the sill interior and use a credit card to work the tape into the corner.(4) As I peel off the backer I am constantly looking to see that the tape is going straight and I lightly stick the tape to the outside edge of the buck.(5) Once I get to the other corner, I use my card to work the tape into the acoustical sealant and then back up the jamb.(6) Using the card, slowly work the tape around the back dam material. As long as you haven’t applied any pressure, the tape will reposition a little.I use a similar procedure for the jambs and header.(1) Caulk seal the corners again. I fold my tape along the split backing line and stick as I pull off the backing. At the head of the jamb, the tape has to be cut at the corner and wraps to the exterior header.(2) Work the tape downwards using the card (see Image #6).(3) Once I reach a corner, I work the tape into the bead of acoustical sealant.(4) When the interior of the jamb as been tape-sealed, I simultaneously pull the paper backing off at the exterior while I wrap the tape to the exterior 2x4s of the building.When the windows go in, they will be caulked along the back edge of the nailing fin at the jambs and header with exterior silicone caulk. More 3M tape will seal the nailing flange to the tape already in place. An aluminum end dam flashing will be added to the top of each window and the WRB (Tyvek) will tape directly to tape used as the final flashing detail on the nailing fin for a completely flashed opening. Typical detailing makes for a leaky exteriorEnsuring that a building is airtight involves some planning — well, actually, a lot of planning! I’ve learned that the barrier needs to be defined incrementally as stages of construction are being completed. With a cross section of your building you should be able to start at some point on the building’s interior (if the air barrier is defined there) and follow the air barrier with a pen, around the floor, walls, windows, ceilings and eventually back to the point where you began, without lifting your pen from the paper. You really need to think about how the air barrier will make transitions from one plane to another as it wraps around the building.One of those areas is at the windows. The windows themselves are part of the air barrier. However, they need to be tied into rest of the barrier. We defined the air barrier at the interior of the walls: OSB with acoustical sealant at joints and further sealed with 3M-8067 tape. The window bucks will be tape-sealed to the OSB. This change in plane for the air barrier makes the inside of the buck the airtight barrier; so the windows need to seal against the interior.I have seen many builders assume that the exterior water-resistive barrier (WRB) is an air barrier — and I guess in some cases, you could make it one. But with all the penetrations with nails, staples, and electrical, I really can’t see how it could be airtight. Builders here typically use Tyvek to flash their window openings. The Tyvek is wrapped around the building and cut diagonally and wrapped to the interior sills, jambs, and headers of the window openings to form flashings.When spray foam is applied, it often ends up often between the Tyvek and the window, which would allow a lot of air leakage between the framing members and the Tyvek. None of the corners of the window opening are caulked or sealed in any way and are not typically tied into the interior vapor barrier. This makes for a very leaky structure. Using a solid buck with caulking at the corners and proper tape sealing makes the most sense. Editor’s Note: This is one of a series of blogs by David Goodyear describing the construction of his new home in Flatrock, Newfoundland, the first in the province built to the Passive House standard. The first installment of the GBA blog series was titled An Introduction to the Flatrock Passive House. For a list of Goodyear’s earlier blogs on this site, see the “Related Articles” sidebar below; you’ll find his complete blog here.center_img RELATED ARTICLES Sealing the window bucksIt’s important to get a good air seal against the buck while also flashing the window properly. Since the window drawings in my plans are cross-sectional, the details are hard to visualize. It took me some time to map out my process. Here’s what I did.For inside corners:(1) Caulk all corners and joints in the plywood buck with acoustical sealant.(2) Cut strips of tape the same length as the depth of the buck.(3) Using 4-inch-wide 3M tape, peel off one side of the split paper backing. Fold the tape and stick to one plane of the buck close to the corner.(4) Peel off half of the paper backing for the remaining half of the tape and use a credit card or something similar to roll the tape slowly into acoustical sealant in the corner of the buck.(5) Use the card to smooth out tape with light pressure making sure to work outwards to smooth out veins that can form by uneven tape.(6) Once the joints are complete, I roll them with a J-roller to ensure good contact between the tape and the wood buck. (You can see these details in Image #4.)Now you have good airtight joints at the corners of the buck! Questions and Answers About Air BarriersAll About Water-Resistive Barriers ‘Innie’ Windows or ‘Outie’ Windows? Installing Windows In a Foam-Sheathed WallWhere Does the Housewrap Go?Return to the Backyard Tape Test From Joseph Lstiburek: Windows Can be a PainSeeking an Affordable Energy-Efficient Exterior DoorAll About Doors Door openingsIt took us a while to wrap our heads around the door details on my plans. The main exterior wall is composed of 2x8s. The rough opening is substantially larger than the door. Because the walls are much deeper than a standard door frame for a 2×6 wall, the interior of the 2×8 opening was studded with double 2x4s. Outside of these 2x4s, there is 1 1/2 inches of foam and another 2×4 on the flat which brings the door frame opening flush to the exterior 3 inches of EPS foam (these framing details are visible in image #8 below). The brickmold of the door will sit against the exterior of the wall. The ganged 2x4s which define the opening will allow the door to open a little further than that of a 2×8 wall.With the door details finalized, I had to flash the opening according to the plan. The sill pans have a kind of end dam to prevent water from entering under the stud opening should the door ever leak (Image #8, below). After verifying that the concrete sill was level, I installed the aluminum sill by sliding it into place and securing it with a single roofing nail in the back of the end dam.I used Blueskin, a self-adhering membrane, to form a sill pan (see Image #9, below). It was cut long enough to run 6 inches up the jamb on each side. Before sticking it in place I primed the surfaces with Henry Spray Primer. Finally, another piece of Blueskin was applied to the pan and extended onto the vapor barrier (see Image #10, below).I primed all of the surfaces before applying the membrane. Once the details are complete (to be described in a future post), the Blueskin will extend all the way to the slab. To ensure a good seal in the corners and along the length of the joint between the Blueskin pieces I used a bead of acoustical sealant. Image #10 below shows a simple neoprene back dam that will prevent water from entering the house should the door leak.Before commencing the flashing detail, 8-inch-wide pieces of Tyvek were attached to the outer jambs with staples (Image #11, below). The tape used at the jambs was the same 3M-8067 that I have used elsewhere but is 9 inches wide; 2 inches of tape wraps to the exterior and onto the Tyvek and the rest is stuck to the jamb.After the jambs, the header tape is applied. After this is completed, the taping detail is wrapped to the interior 2x4s as shown in Image #12 below. At this time, the doors are ready for installation. After the doors are installed (the doors have brickmold exterior casing), end dam cap flashing will be added to the header of the door and then Tyvek will be adhered to the top for a completely flashed opening.Overall, I am pleased with the way the details turned out. Bring on the doors!last_img read more

5 killed, more than 20 injured in bus accident near Khandala

first_imgAt least five people, including women and a child, were killed and more than 20 seriously injured when a private bus overturned near Khandala along the old Mumbai-Pune highway early on Monday.According to police authorities, the bus (MH04 FK 1599) was proceeding from Karad in Satara to Mumbai when the driver lost control around 5:30 a.m. while trying to navigate through the winding Bhor Ghat, around 75 km from Pune city. The ghat’s treacherous turns have been the cause of several accidents in the past. The bus careened off the road and plunged into a valley, overturning and hitting trees and the surrounding vegetation. The severity of the accident caused the front of the bus to be completely mangled, its windows smashed, while the rear wheels detached themselves from the axle.The deceased have been identified as Pramila Mohite, 50, a resident of Belavale in Kolhapur district, Sneha Patil, 15, and her father, Janardhan Patil, 50, both residents of Ghatkopar in Mumbai, Sanjay Rakshe, 50, a resident of Powai, and Sarvadnya Thorat, 3, a resident of Karad in Satara.The injured persons, who were rescued by authorities and members from social outfits, were rushed to the M.G.M. Hospital near Kamothe, the Pawana Hospital near Somatane Phata and the Lokmanya Hospital in Nighdi among others.“At least 12 to 13 persons among the 25 or so injured have suffered especially grievous injuries and are undergoing treatment at a number of hospitals near the express highway,” said an official from the Pune Rural police.last_img read more

Huawei Honor 9 open for pre-registration ahead of June 12 launch

first_imgChinese smartphone maker Huawei is all set to launch its upcoming flagship device Honor 9 on June 12. The device has been subjected to several leaks and rumours and now it seems that the device is already up for pre-orders in its home country.- China.Huawei Honor 9 has been spotted on a Chinamobile. The device is seen on the registration page of the website. It seems that the smartphone is available for pre-orders and the site has also talked a bit about phone’s specs.According to the listing, Honor 9 will sport 5.15 inch 1080p screen. TENAA listing had also revealed that the smartphone will have a 3D curved glass at the back and a 2.5D curved glass on the front. The upcoming Honor 9 may share its looks with its predecessor Honor 8. The smartphone is expected to sport a dual camera set up at the back with LED flash and laser focus module. The spec sheet by Chinamobile reveals that the Honor 9 will come with 12MP and 20MP dual rear-camera setup and will be fuelled by Hisilicon Kirin 960 chipset . Previous rumours suggest that the smartphone may come with a reflective glass shell and a fingerprint scanner at the front. Furthermore, the device could pack in  6GB RAM.  The TENAA listing hint at two RAM variants of the phone. There are chances that there could be 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM, both with 128GB internal storage onboard. The Honor 9 is purported to come with a battery size of more than 3000mAh.Past rumours hint that Honor may ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack in the Honor 9. A leak by The Tech Point had exposed  the device form several angles . the bottom part of the phone was seen carrying two speaker grills with a USB Type-C port placed in the middle. This could mean that the device may drop the 3.5mm headphone jack as the two speaker grills possibly could be mic and the loudspeaker.advertisementAlso Read: Honor 9 leak suggests it may drop 3.5mm headphone jacklast_img read more
