Prosecutors Seek Death Penalty for Man in Father’s Boca Raton Killing

first_imgState prosecutors have announced they are seeking the death penalty against a man accused of stabbing and strangling his father while he was sleeping in a Boca Raton parking garage last month.A notice of intent to seek the death penalty against Jared Noiman was filed Thursday.The police report states that Noiman was “covered in blood” when officers stopped him in Delray Beach several hours after the murder. He “claimed to have been in an altercation in Boca Raton.”The document continues, “Noiman would not elaborate on who was involved in the altercation and did not wish to report a crime.”He was subsequently arrested on a charge of driving without a license and taken into custody. Investigators said at the time there was no probable cause to charge him with the killing.However, Noiman went to the Boca Raton Police Department the next day and confessed to killing his father.“He said the two lived together out of his father’s vehicle and they slept in the parking garage at One Ocean Plaza,” according to police. “Noiman said he did not like the way his father treated him and he started having thoughts about killing him. Noiman continued his statement with a detailed description of how he stabbed his father and then strangled him while he was sleeping in the parking garage.”The notice of intent cites the crime as being “especially heinous, atrocious and cruel.”Read the notice of intent here:last_img read more

Lakers’ Anthony Davis is questionable to face Pacers on Tuesday (sprained ankle)

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWhat might be most at risk is a staggering run of away game success: The Lakers have won 14 consecutive games on the road, a stretch that is tied for third in NBA history, according to Basketball Reference. The record-holders are the 1971-72 Lakers, who won 16 straight on the road.ESPN reported Monday morning that Davis was “trying” to prepare to play on Tuesday. On Sunday night, Coach Frank Vogel said he made the decision to let Davis finish that game based on what Davis told him he was feeling.“You make a common-sense read,” Vogel said. “It’s pretty obvious if a guy can’t be out there. He was limping a little bit but didn’t show any signs like he needed to come out. Once the action was in play, he was moving fine. You just trust your guys.”Of Davis’ 27-point, 13-rebound and two-block stat line, he had two points, two rebounds and a block after the 4:14 mark, when he turned his ankle on a shot attempt and was fouled. He missed three field-goal attempts in that span.Missing Davis, who has been thrust forward as a Defensive Player of the Year candidate, would hurt against an Indiana team featuring Myles Turner and Domantis Sabonis. But in the big game circled on Thursday, pitting the Lakers against Eastern Conference leader Milwaukee, Davis’ absence would be felt much more against reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak is averaging a career-best 31 points and 12.8 rebounds per game, and the Bucks had a 17-game winning streak going into Monday’s games. The Lakers have played just one game without Davis, a win over Golden State, but started Kyle Kuzma, who is also missing time with a sprained ankle. The Lakers said he would miss his fourth straight game on Tuesday night.“He’s literally just taking it day to day,” Vogel said of Kuzma ahead of the Atlanta game. “But we’re willing to take a long-term approach to make sure it’s behind him.”If the Lakers don’t elect to go small, they might probe deep into their bench, giving more time to Jared Dudley as well as two-way players Kostas Antetokounmpo (Giannis’ brother) or Devontae Cacok.LeBRON EARNS WEEKLY HONORIn his first 15 seasons, LeBron James was Eastern Conference Player of the Week an NBA-record 61 times. It took him more than a year-and-half to get his first one in the West.After the Lakers went 3-0 last week on the road, James got conference honors, 28.3 points, 11 rebounds and 9.7 assists – just shy of a weeklong triple-double average. That slate included a triple-double in Orlando, a close shave win over the previously perfect-at-home Miami Heat, and a highlight-studded contest in Atlanta.In the midst of it all, James took a plane to Columbus, Ohio, to watch his oldest son score 15 points for Sierra Canyon High in a win over his alma mater, which James called “one of the greatest moments of my life so far.”James has been topped twice by Davis, his frontcourt teammate, for weekly honors this season. The Lakers have received three of the eight weekly conference player of the week awards so far. James seemed particularly touched by some spirit in the win over the Hawks, where his between-the-legs assist made a Lakers-friendly crowd gasp in surprise.“That’s just my approach and my joyfulness,” he said. “Highlights, sometimes they happen, sometimes they don’t. But just playing the game with a lot of joy, a lot of fun, a lot of intensity. Trying to do whatever it takes to help my team win and I was happy I was able to make a few plays tonight to help us do that.” INDIANAPOLIS — After spraining his right ankle in Atlanta on Sunday night, Anthony Davis said he tried to grin and bear it. Despite noticeably limping for the last four minutes, he put a brave face on afterward.“Tweaked it a little bit, but just tried to play the rest of the game off adrenaline and then attend to it after the game,” he said. “A little sore, but got a couple days to get it right before Indiana.”Indiana has come calling, and now the Lakers aren’t sure if Davis, their leading scorer, will play on Tuesday night.For the Lakers (24-3), who possess a 4-1/2-game lead in the Western Conference standings, no game at the moment is make-or-break. But the Lakers would feel a little short-handed without Davis going against the Pacers (18-9), who are 11-3 at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse so far this season. Averaging 27.4 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots, Davis has been one of the essential pieces of the Lakers’ fast start.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

MLB trade rumors: Tigers listening to offers for Nicholas Castellanos, Matthew Boyd

first_img Yankees trade rumors: New York has spoken with Blue Jays about Marcus Stroman The Tigers are open for business.Detroit “will listen to offers” for starter Matthew Boyd and slugger Nicholas Castellanos, according to a report from MLB Network, which cites unidentified league sources. The team is also willing to deal closer Shane Greene, along with “virtually any veteran on its roster,” the report says. “We knew this was going to be tough,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said last week, via MLB.com. “All we can do is keep competing and trying. We’ve got infielders all over the place, outfielders all over the place. We’ve got basically four starters. It’s a challenge right now.”The Yankees and Rangers are both reportedly looking to acquire at least one starting pitcher before the July 31 trade deadline. Boyd, 28, is in the middle of a career season as he has registered a 5-4 record with a 3.08 ERA in 14 starts. He has struck out 105 and walked 15 in 84 2/3 innings pitched.Castellanos, meanwhile, is slashing .262/.312/.452 with seven home runs and 24 RBIs in 61 games this season. The 27-year-old has blasted 100 homers over his seven-year career. Related Newscenter_img The Tigers have been one of the worst teams in baseball and finished play Wednesday with a 25-39 record. They’re in fourth place of the American League Central, 18 games behind the division-leading Twins.“Can it be difficult?” Castellanos said earlier this month about the team’s struggles, via the Detroit Free Press. “Yes. Can it be draining? Yes. But are there lessons to be learned in all of this? Absolutely.”Detroit is in the middle of a rebuild and last made the playoffs in 2014.

South Africa’s ‘quantum’ football stadium

first_img28 May 2010 The Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban’s spectacular 2010 Fifa World Cup venue, has scored not only an engineering first for an African stadium with its majestic arch. It has also become the world’s first “quantum” stadium. Quantum “cryptography”, which in layman’s terms refers to anything written in secret code, is a new technique of providing ultra-high communication security by encoding data within quantum particles. A person who tries to intercept an information feed protected in this way without being noticed must first break the established laws of quantum mechanics. “This is the first public global event to use such a quantum-based encryption solution,” says Professor Francesco Petruccione of the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Centre for Quantum Technology, which has led the project in partnership with the city of Durban. “The project will provide a high-level security system along the optical fibre communication link between the stadium and the Joint Operations Centre during the World Cup,” Petruccione said last week. “To achieve this, we use quantum mechanical methods to distribute ultra-secure encryption keys.” Information conveyed through optical fibre links is often not encrypted, and therefore vulnerable to tapping using equipment readily available via the internet, Petruccione noted. The quantum-based system will make it virtually impossible for hackers to tap into communication between the two points via telephone, e-mail and video links. KwaZulu-Natal Premier Zweli Mkhize last week congratulated Petruccione and his team, comprising mainly academics and post-graduate students, for what he called a “remarkable innovation”. University of KwaZulu-Natal deputy vice-chancellor Rob Slotow said the university was pleased that it could make a contribution to the running of the World Cup. “Especially in this, the most spectacular stadium in South Africa,” he added.

SA marks 50 years since Rivonia Trial sentencing

first_img12 June 2014 It was 50 years ago today, on Friday, 12 June 1964, that eight men stood in the dock in the Palace of Justice in Pretoria awaiting their sentence on sabotage charges in what became known as the Rivonia Trial. On that day in 1964 a large crowd had gathered in the street outside the court in support of the eight men who had been tried for eight-and-a-half months in a trial that began on 9 October 1963. Before the trial a second trial indictment had listed 10 accused: Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Raymond Mhlaba, Denis Goldberg, Ahmed Kathrada, Andrew Mlangeni, Elias Motsoaledi, Lionel “Rusty” Bernstein, and James Kantor. However, Bernstein was acquitted on 11 June 1964, rearrested and later fled the country, while Kantor was released on 4 March of that year. An 11th accused, Bob Hepple, had all charges against him withdrawn on condition that he testified for the prosecution before the trial. He agreed but never did and also fled the country. The eight men on trial were all expecting to be sentenced to death for their role in the African National Congress’s (ANC) armed struggle against apartheid. “The menacing shadow of the gallows stalked us in and outside the courtroom throughout that trial. In prison one lived in a pervading atmosphere of the death sentence. Prison officials, maliciously or otherwise, went out of their way to constantly cast such shadows in my path,” Nelson Mandela wrote later while in prison. “It was a tense moment when the judge finally delivered his sentence, it was a source of encouragement to see that it was not the accused in the dock who were visibly nervous but the judge himself. “The whole of South Africa and the world tensely awaited the verdict and the unprecedented step was taken to have it broadcast directly from the court,” Mandela wrote. “The judge’s voice was barely audible as he pronounced sentence of life imprisonment and quickly left the court. Among the spectators there was a sigh of relief and many hurriedly left the court to convey the news to the excited throng outside.” The eight were relieved, although for their families in the court, it was difficult to witness their loved ones about to be sent to jail for life. In those days in South Africa, a life sentence meant just that. But at least they had life. They were incarcerated in Robben Island Prison, with the exception of Goldberg, who because he was white was sent to Pretoria Central Prison, where he served 22 years.A mystery solved While he photographed the crowd outside the courtroom and the accused in a van heading for jail, a young university student, Lionel Shapiro, also captured the trialists’ family members leaving. For years, one photograph stood out for Shapiro. He had been unable to identify a young woman leaving the court. It was only after Shapiro had donated these photographs to the Nelson Mandela Foundation, in 2014, that archivist Zanele Riba made some enquiries and discovered who she was. It was the late June Mlangeni, the wife of Andrew Mlangeni, who was delighted to discover the existence of the photograph and confirmed that the “beautiful”, “lovely” woman was his wife. “Oh look at how brave she is,” he said. Mandela’s Rivonia Trial speech It was at the Rivonia Trial that Mandela made his famous speech, which ended with the words: “During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Nelson Mandela Foundation and SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
