Dog train man doesn’t know he’s a viral sensation

first_imgFort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Facebook Riley Knighthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/riley-knight/ + posts printFort Worth native Eugene Bostick gained national attention when a local TV station did a story on his homemade “dog-train,” a year ago.The 81-year-old quickly went viral after a neighbor shared a photo of him and his invention on Facebook.Bostick takes his dogs out riding once a week in a barrel caravan that he made after seeing a hunter using a similar strategy to haul rocks. The pups are rescued strays that were dumped on his farm.After his story aired, donations and support poured out from dog-lovers across the nation.“A group out of Austin… they brought me a block of dog food down here and a bunch of dog blankets, which I needed,” said Bostick. “Same with a lady out of Oklahoma. She brought us about 400 pounds of dog food.”Bostick was flown out to Los Angeles, California for the Fox television 2015 special The All Star Dog Rescue Celebration, produced by Michael Levitt and Academy Award winner Hillary Swank. On the show, he was awarded The Citizens Rescuer of the Year.Bostick, who’d never flown on a plane before, agreed to go as long as his wife and daughter could come too.“And we got first class all the way up there. We stayed at the Hilton hotel, and when we had to go somewhere they sent a limousine to pick us up and take us,” he said. “We had a grand time.”After a month of interviews and excitement, life seemingly went back to normal for Bostick. However, his story started trending on the Internet, with news outlets like Buzzfeed, Oddity Central and the Huffington Post running his story.With no access to the Internet, Bostick was oblivious to the fact that he is a viral sensation.The original Facebook post that went viral.“No I didn’t. I knew a little bit about it, but I didn’t know about what you was telling me about how viral it went… it makes me feel pretty good really.”Bostick, who’d never heard of Facebook, was shocked to hear that his picture has sixty-thousand shares.“Doggone! Yeah that is a pretty good picture of the dog train… I guess it had went out.”Viral sensation or not, Bostick said he will continue to take his hounds out on a ride around the golf course across from his home.Below is a map of the dog train’s route.The path Bostick takes on the dog train.“Well even though it has slowed down, I do at least take the dogs train riding once a week – usually on a Monday or Tuesday,” he said. “Because the dogs do love it.

Ivorian army captain arrested in France on suspicion of kidnapping Kieffer

first_img Côte d’IvoireAfrica Côte d’IvoireAfrica November 27, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Reports RSF_en Reporters Without Borders and Osange Silou-Kieffer, the wife of missing journalist Guy-André Kieffer, issued a joint statement today voicing optimism about a breakthrough in the French investigation into Kieffer’s April 2004 disappearance in Abidjan. Kieffer had French and Canadian dual citizenship.The decisive development is the arrest in France of Jean-Tony Oulaï, an Ivorian army captain who claims to have belonged to the Ivorian special services. Oulaï has contradicted himself many times in his statements and evidence suggests he could have been the head of a commando that kidnapped and eliminated Kieffer.At the same time, the two judges in charge of the French investigation, Patrick Ramaël and Emmanuelle Ducos, have announced their intention to travel to Côte d’Ivoire on 16 February for a one-week visit under the fifth formal request for assistance to be addressed to the Ivorian judicial authorities since the investigation began.“The investigation is clearly progressing,” the joint statement said. “Oulaï’s interrogation will be to take place in a calm environment, far from the pressure that is put on the witnesses who are still in Côte d’Ivoire. If the work of judges Ramaël and Ducos is not obstructed again, we have a good chance of finding out the truth soon.” The statement added: “For this reason, we call on the Ivorian government to agree to Michel Legré’s transfer to France as soon as possible.” Legré is a key witness whose transfer has been awaiting Ivorian approval for more than a year.Two days after Oulaï’s arrest outside Paris on 11 January, French judicial authorities announced that he is to be formally investigated on suspicion of kidnapping and illegally detaining Kieffer. His lawyer appealed against a provisional custody order, but a Paris appeal court ruled on 26 January that Oulaï should remain in Paris’s La Santé prison.When two of his bodyguards accused Oulaï in May 2004 of supervising Kieffer’s abduction, he responded by claiming he was not in Abidjan that day. It was later established from his mobile phone records that he was indeed in Abidjan. He finally acknowledged this under interrogation three weeks ago, claiming that the police had “badly summarized” his initial statements. But he continued to deny participating in the abduction. The two bodyguards have meanwhile retracted, claiming their initial statements were just “a joke.”This year’s Caen Memorial competition for young lawyers has meanwhile been won by Benoît Kossi Afangbedji of Togo for an essay about Kieffer’s disappearance as a violation of Ivorian press freedom and free speech. The panel that chose the winner, headed by singer Barbara Hendricks, has declared that Kieffer’s abduction will be one of three cases to receive a follow-up by the Caen Memorial. Afangbedji has asked to join the Kieffer defence collective, bringing the number of lawyers on the case to 11.A freelance journalist based in Abidjan, Kieffer was last seen at around 1 p.m. on 16 April 2004 in a shopping centre in the city. He specialised in commodities and business, working for the French business daily La Tribune from 1984 to early 2002, when he moved to Côte d’Ivoire’s business capital and began freelancing for La Lettre du Continent and several Ivorian newspapers.Legré, who is the brother-in-law of President Laurent Gbagbo’s wife, was the last person to see Kieffer before he went missing. Judge Ramaël opened an investigation against him on 21 October 2004 on suspicion of “abducting and holding” Kieffer. On 13 December 2004, he requested Legré’s temporary transfer to France for questioning, but the Ivorian authorities never approved the request. Legré was held in an Abidjan detention centre for a year and half before being granted a provisional release in October 2005.

Local insurance company donates 250 bears to OPD, ECSO

first_img Michael Bearor talks to Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke after the donation. HSB Insurance donated approximately 100 teddy bears to the Odressa Police Department’s Teddy Bear Patrol program Tuesday in front of OPD. Odessa Police Department Chief Michael Gerke picked up multiple stuffed animals and knew that small token could one day brighten a child’s life. HSB Insurance Agency donated about 125 stuffed animals to OPD on Tuesday morning. Gerke said every officer in the department will carry two or three stuffed animals in their patrol unit and have the ability to give them out to children while responding to calls. “It’s really nice to have these things to give out to the children in the community when they experience a traumatic incident,” Gerke said. “They could be involved in an accident with their parents or it could be a family violence situation.” Michael Bearor, an insurance consultant for HSB Insurance Agency in Odessa, said she donated a total of about 250 stuffed animals to OPD and the Ector County Sheriff’s Office. Bearor said she delivered the 125 stuffed animals to ECSO on Monday. Bearor said a stuffed animal is a little gesture, but it can lift the spirits of a child. “It can go a long way with a child because it calms the child down and they can hold on to that,” Bearor said. “At least they have something to hold. If they have something to hold, there’s still hope.” Gerke said OPD has collected stuffed animals well before he started at the department, which he explained was more than 22 years ago. OPD formed the Odessa Teddy Bear Patrol in 1990 as a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, an OPD website stated. Bearor said she donated stuffed animals to law enforcement agencies in the past, but this is the first time that she has partnered with a company. Bearor hopes to donate a collection of stuffed animals to ECSO and OPD next year. “Now that I have brought in my place of employment, we plan on doing this every year and hopefully it will grow every year,” Bearor said. “I usually run the teddy bear drive in the spring or early summer, because it seems like the summer months are worse and that’s really when (ECSO and OPD) need them.” Local NewsLaw Enforcement TAGS  Twitter Facebook Pinterest Local insurance company donates 250 bears to OPD, ECSO By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 center_img Facebook WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Previous articleHit and run investigationNext article5 must-haves to pack for a fun holiday weekend Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApplast_img read more

Disciplinary policy was not discriminatory

first_img Sidhu v Aerospace Composite Technology, unreported, May 2000, Court of AppealAt an Aerospace “family day” outing Sidhu became involved in a violent argument with Smith after he had subjected the Sidhu family to racial insults. Both were dismissed for gross misconduct and the decision was upheld after an internal appeal.Sidhu’s race discrimination claim against Aerospace failed because the tribunal held that the incident had not taken place during the course of employment. Further, Aerospace had not acted in a discriminatory manner during the disciplinary and appeal processes by consciously disregarding the fact that the attack on Sidhu had been a racial one. Sidhu successfully appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, which held that Aerospace’s deliberate decision to disregard the racial motive of the attack was itself “race-specific” and constituted racial discrimination. But the Court of Appeal allowed Aerospace’s appeal and held that its decision to disregard provocation of any type, not only racial provocation, when applying its disciplinary policy did not amount to less favourable treatment on racial grounds.How to determine if there is a relevant transferLightways (Contractors) v Associated Holdings, IDS Brief 660, Court of Session AH’s contract with the local council to provide street lighting maintenance had expired and tenderers for the new contract had to indicate whether their bid was submitted on the basis that the Tupe regulations applied. Lightways won the contract and its tender included a statement that Tupe applied to the transaction. Lightways took on several AH staff but subsequently argued that Tupe did not apply.The tribunal held that there was a “relevant transfer”. It took into account factors such as Lightways’ statement and the fact that it required AH staff to carry out the new contract (and had made enquiries about their availability), indicating that the undertaking retained its identity after the transfer. The EAT upheld this decision. On appeal, the Court of Session (the Scottish Court of Appeal) held that in establishing whether there was a relevant transfer the events directly constituting the transaction as well as the surrounding circumstances had to be considered, and this included the attitude and intention of the parties.
