Seeded breads on a high

first_imgContinuing the Swiss theme this week, a Swiss man was reportedly detained by airport authorities in Dubai after poppy seeds were discovered on his clothing. Officials, following a hardline on drug smuggling in the United Arab Emirates, took issue with the seeds, which apparently came from a sandwich he bought in Heathrow. In light of this crackdown, travellers are advised not to follow Dr Allinson’s toothache remedy (see above right).last_img

Attorneys Plan Legal Action Against Palm Beach County Mask Mandate

first_imgSeveral local attorneys say they are preparing to challenge Palm Beach County’s executive order to wear face coverings.The measure, which the county commission passed unanimously on Tuesday, is set to go into effect at 12:01 a.m. Thursday.However, attorney Melissa Martz tells West Palm Beach television station WPEC that she and three other lawyers sent commissioners a cease and desist order, arguing the mask mandate is unconstitutional.She adds that several people are interested in being plaintiffs in her pending litigation.“County commissioners are on notice,” Martz adds. “This is a huge invasion of our physical autonomy, and we have a right to be left alone by the government.”She explains that the order violates an individual’s right to privacy, as well as religious freedom, right to speech, due process, and equal protection under the law.Similar lawsuits have already been filed in Miami-Dade and Orange counties, due to their face mask ordinances.LATEST OPERATIONAL UPDATES FOR PALM BEACH COUNTY. https://t.co/dt7NTIPEBO#COVID19PBCUpdate #COVID19PBCSafety #PBCStrong pic.twitter.com/acYA2owlrZ— Palm Beach County (@pbcgov) June 24, 2020 Palm Beach County commissioners heard opposing legal arguments on Tuesday.For example, Justice Ira Raab told the commission that the orders are legal. He emphasized that people do not have a constitutional right to endanger the health of other individuals.“Some people may claim they have a constitutional right to not wear a mask,” he said. “They do not have a constitutional right to endanger others just like they do not have a right in a crowded theatre to yell fire.”Martz says she plans t argue that the state has not proven that wearing a mask will stop the spread of COVID-19, and that the state has therefore not shown such a mandate is necessary.“As a citizen I am extremely disheartened to see we have tyrannical rule where I live,” she argues.Following Tuesday’s vote, Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner said that he believes the commissioners are acting in the interest of public health and safety, and that the new mask mandate will slow the spread of the virus.“It is our duty to put public health first and that means a mandatory order,” Kerner said.last_img read more

Beat writers expect Syracuse to beat Old Dominion by single-digits

first_img Published on December 14, 2018 at 11:36 am Comments Syracuse (7-2) ended Georgetown’s winning streak last Saturday on a Tyus Battle game-winning shot. This Saturday, the Orange and Old Dominion (7-3) both enter their noon meeting in the Carrier Dome on five-game winning streaks. ODU is coming off a 79-69 win over Fairfield last Saturday.Here’s what our beat writers expect to happen between Syracuse and Old Dominion.Billy Heyen (8-1)King of the hillSyracuse 67, Old Dominion 60Old Dominion enters Saturday’s matchup with one of the best defenses in the country. The Monarchs also boast a senior-heavy backcourt, with stars Ahmad Caver and B.J. Stith both providing offense from beyond the arc and close to the rim. Strong defense and veteran guards are two sure-fire assets for an upset bid, and I expect Old Dominion to hang around with Syracuse for much of the way Saturday. But as Tyus Battle and company proved against Georgetown, the Orange know how to finish, and that skill will prove valuable down the stretch of a sixth-straight win for SU.Charlie DiSturco (7-2)On a rollSyracuse 68, Old Dominion 61AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis is not a game to take lightly. Old Dominion is a strong defensive team, ranking second in the country in defensive 2-point field goal percentage, with a pair of 7-foot tall men that could disrupt Syracuse inside the paint. The Big Blue is also ran by veteran senior point guard Ahmad Caver, who averages 18.5 points and 5.1 assists per game. The Orange will need Frank Howard back and better than ever to help stave off an upset-hungry ODU team. This game will be close before SU pulls away at the end.Matthew Gutierrez (6-3)Oldie but goodieSyracuse 72, Old Dominion 65The Orange improve to 8-2 with a strong showing Saturday afternoon. Head coach Jim Boeheim said after the Georgetown win that senior point guard Frank Howard would have one week — one week to get back to the floor general we know from last season. Therein lies the most intriguing aspect of this matinee: How does SU’s guard look? His emergence is key for SU come the Top 25 matchup Tuesday night against Buffalo.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
