Austin, TexasThe Austin Police Department carried out an extrajudicial killing of 42-year-old Michael Brent Ramos, known as “Mike,” on April 24. Local media reported that the APD was responding to a call about two people, allegedly in possession of a gun, doing drugs in a parked car.Banner drops on April 27 demand justice for Mike Ramos.According to local witnesses, police responded by surrounding the vehicle, blocking the exit from an apartment complex parking lot as well as a nearby intersection. What followed was captured by numerous cell phone cameras and uploaded to various social media pages.A video showed the police drawing their weapons and ordering Mike Ramos out of the car. As he steps out with his hands in the air, his waistline is exposed. None of the video angles show a weapon. The cops order Ramos to step toward them. In one video he can be heard saying that he is afraid of what might happen if he does.That’s when a pig who just graduated from the academy three months ago fires a bean bag from his shotgun, hitting Ramos in the chest. Ramos falls to the ground and scrambles to get inside his vehicle. He pulls the door closed and begins to drive away. The videos show that his vehicle never went in the direction of the police.The rookie’s partner, a five-year APD veteran, fired three rounds at Ramos, causing him to crash into a car parked nearby. Ramos later died in the hospital.Top pig Chief Brian Manley, whose police force has been widely criticized for an internal culture of racism that intimidates anyone who speaks out, stated no weapon was found on Mike Ramos. His tragic death has left his mother, Brenda Ramos, without her only son. She has since started a gofundme.com fundraiser at “Justice for Mike Ramos.”Local residents, enraged by the killing, risked personal safety to protest outside that same night. Then a follow-up protest was held on Saturday night, April 25, with many calling the APD murderers and racists.The Austin Justice Coalition, a local police reform and justice advocacy group, wrote a letter addressed to the City Council, mayor and city manager demanding the removal of Police Chief Manley, Chief of Staff Troy Gay and Assistant City Manager Rey Arellano. It demanded an independent investigation of the shooting and a delay to a scheduled June police academy class to implement training reforms.The letter detailed the APD’s history of racism and its refusal to respond to demands made by both the people of Austin and its City Council. It was signed by nearly 40 different local organizations, including the newly formed Central Texas Workers Alliance (fb.me/centraltexasworkers) and the Texas branch of Workers World Party (fb.me/workersworldtexas).That evening, as people who were forced to work during the COVID-19 pandemic drove to their homes, a series of four banners were dropped at several highway overpasses. They called for justice for Mike Ramos and a general strike as well as a rent strike on May 1.The slogans read: “May Day general strike/No blood for the Dow,” “May Day general strike/No work, no rent,” “Rent strike May 1st/ Justice for Mike Ramos” and “Justice 4 Mike Ramos.”Texas Gov. Greg Abbott plans to continue allowing businesses to open, despite the advice of experts and the general support among workers for social distancing and economic shutdown. With the police killing of Mike Ramos on top of this health disaster, workers in Austin are finding themselves with no choice but to fight back.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Next: Michael Barrett Joins Transformational Mortgage Solutions Tagged with: Documentation electronic recording eNotary esigning Governemnt Legislation Ohio OLTA Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Gail C. Hersh, Jr. Editor’s note: This feature originally appeared in the January issue of DS News.On December 13, 2018, Ohio’s Legislature passed Substitute Senate Bill 263, the Notary Public Modernization Act, after the Senate approved the House’s amendments. The legislation, which is pending the governor’s signature, will take effect one year from enactment.The law addresses several issues regarding notary publics, including those involving electronic and online notarization. It also includes benefits for those engaged in electronic real estate transactions.The law’s online notarization provisions bring Ohio in step with advancing legislation in the majority of states and mimic other legislation vetted by the banking and title insurance industries. A large portion of the law deals with centralizing all notary commissions with the secretary of state. Those duties were previously distributed among dozens of county offices and bar associations. Lastly, the law harmonizes electronic notarization with Ohio’s other electronic signature laws.The process for remote electronic notarization will generally follow current industry practices, including visual verification of both the person and credentials, as well as an oral administration of the oath or statements of acknowledgment. What’s new are electronic signatures and the ability to use a secure, quality, audio-visual connection.While current laws don’t preclude recording electronically signed documents, it’s important to overcome the resistance of county officials by making it as clear and easy as possible for them to accept digital documents. This will facilitate adoption and help make handling electronically executed documents the norm.To that end, as chair of the Ohio Land Title Association’s (OLTA) Government Affairs Committee, I proposed amending the bill to include a “papering out” process for offices that don’t yet permit electronic documents to transfer real property. Even for counties with electronic recording, some of the offices for auditors and engineers aren’t set up for processing electronically submitted transactions. The law passed without this amendment, so addressing the issue will likely need to be done by amendment as part of the budget legislation or through the secretary of state’s rulemaking powers encompassed by the new law.The “papering out” process would require county offices involved in approving real estate transactions to accept a copy of an electronically executed document that contains an attached form certifying the authenticity of the document. A suggested form is included in the proposed amendment and generally mimics the certification made by the submitter during electronic recording. The submitter certifies that the copy of the electronic original document is “true, exact, complete and unaltered.”This process differs from that suggested in the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) and the American Land Title Association’s (ALTA) model legislation for remote online notarization. The MBA/ALTA model would require that title agents have a notary public on staff (and likely on location) who also must have access to the electronic original, or that the notary performing a remote notarization could certify the records. By contrast, the OLTA proposal doesn’t limit the person certifying the document to the notary performing the electronic notarization or to any other notary at all. OLTA’s proposal also avoids the potential conflict with the new law’s provision that prohibits a notary from certifying a document as an original or a true copy of another record (Sec. 147.141(5)).The bill passed the Senate on June 6, 2018, and is currently under review with the Government Accountability and Oversight Committee of the House. The bill was recently revised by the House and a substitute bill is under consideration. If the bill is passed, the changes will take effect one year after its effective date.OLTA’s proposal also accounts for the potential need for a title agent to access an original electronic document later. This is useful if the document is lost in transit or needs to be recorded in multiple jurisdictions, and provides for additional certifications as needed at any time. Requiring that certification be made only by the notary who performed the closing would be more time-consuming and probably cost more.In response, the Ohio Recorders’ Association prepared an amendment that was considered by the House. It proposed merely accepting a copy of the electronic document as long as it bears a notary execution that’s consistent with online notarization. There are signs the industry may prefer OLTA’s proposal, though.

The Court had earlier stayed the trial in the case under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, upon the prosecution’s appeal against a trial court order which had directed for hard copy of the charge sheet to be supplied to all the accused.In light of the state’s withdrawal of its objection to the supply of charge sheet, the single judge bench of Justice Suresh Kait today said, “…no further order is required to be passed and the same is, accordingly, disposed of with pending application. Accordingly, interim order is vacated.”The Delhi Police had earlier opposed supply of hard copies of the chargesheet on the ground that it ran into thousands of pages with twenty-three volumes.The case pertains to an alleged conspiracy that led to rioting in the north-east areas of the national capital in Feb last year – with the accused persons in the case including JNU students, Pinjra Tod activists, and AAP MLA Tahir Hussain. The accused persons are Umar Khalid, Sharjeel Imam, Abdul Khalid Saifi, Asif Iqbal Tanha, Ishrat Jahan, Safoora Zargar, Natasha Narwal, Devangana Kalita.While the first chargesheet in the case, alleges commission of offences under Section 120 B of the Indian Penal Code read with Sections 13, 16, 17, 18 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act [UAPA]; and Sections 124A, 153A, 302, 307, 109, 114, 147, 148, 149, 186, 353, 395, 201, 341, 212, 295, 427, 435, 436, 452, 454, 341, 420, 468, 471, 34 IPC; as well as Sections 25 and 27 of the Arms Act and Sections 3 and 4 of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984, a second charge sheet was filed against Umar Khalid and Sharjeel Imam.

Plasma prolactin levels were measured in free-living breeding adult and immature (prebreeding) macaroni (Eudyptes chrysolophus) and gentoo (Pygoscelis papua) penguins at Bird Island, South Georgia (54°S, 38°W). Macaroni and gentoo penguins first breed at 5-6 and 2 years of age, respectively. In adult birds, of both species, prolactin was low (<1.0 μg.liter-1) during the courtship period and then increased during early (gentoo) to mid (macaroni) incubation (to 3.9-4.7 and 2.4-3.5 μg.liter-1, respectively), remaining elevated until the creche period, by which time continuous nest attendance by the adults had ceased. This pattern is similar to that seen in other altricial species and is consistent with delayed onset of brood patch development and full incubation efficiency, which has been previously reported in penguins. Adult female macaroni penguins showed a marked, but transient, increase in prolactin concentrations within 24 hr of the first egg being laid (from 1.7 to 7.0 μg.liter-1), plasma levels decreasing following clutch completion (to prelaying levels) before increasing again during incubation. Elevated plasma prolactin levels occurred in all age classes of immature (nonbreeding) birds in both macaroni (1- to 5 year-olds) and gentoo (1-year-olds) penguins. However, compared to that in adult birds, the increase in prolactin was more transient in immatures, a smaller proportion of immatures had detectable prolactin levels at each stage of the breeding cycle, and, at least in 1- and 2-year-olds, absolute levels of prolactin were lower. It is suggested that variation in the pattern of prolactin secretion in immature birds represents real, age-related or species-related differences and does not simply reflect differences in the previous photoperiodic environment experienced. The physiological significance of prolactin secretion in immature (nonbreeding) birds remains unknown, but it may simply reflect the existence of a photoperiodically driven prolactin release system which does not become physiologically important until the bird becomes sexually mature and breeds.

In scoring defense, Dixie State ranks 115th nationally with the 36 points they surrendered to Colorado State-Pueblo.Dixie State, through one week, is led by redshirt sophomore signal-caller Kody Wilstead who went 7-12 (58.3 percent) for 39 yards and an interception Saturday. Also, junior quarterback Keaton Mott threw for 112 yards and a score, while completing a woeful 47.6 percent of his passes (10-21).Senior tailback Sei-J Lauago was limited to 29 yards on 10 carries, or a meager 2.9 yards per tote against the Thunderwolves.Junior receiver Jalen Powell had 8 grabs for 65 yards to serve as Dixie State’s offensive leader against Colorado State-Pueblo.Defensively for Dixie State, senior defensive back Alex Lilliard had 1.5 sacks against the Thunderwolves and redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Anthony Yarbrough had a forced fumble in the game.For the Skyhawks, redshirt sophomore tailback Jeff Hansen ran for 15 yards and a score on seven carries against the Cowboys for the only score of the game.Senior defensive lineman Tim Paogofie was stellar for Fort Lewis as he posted two sacks and senior linebacker Darrian Stickney added an interception for the Skyhawks in the win.
