Former cop says letter claims wife seen at store

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings“We got a letter saying she was seen in Florida,” Bosco said. “She’s traveling an awful lot, isn’t she?” The writer of the letter, dated Nov. 19, said Stacy Peterson wasn’t alone when spotted in a Peoria supermarket and might have been trying to be noticed. She appeared to have “a little pudge,” the letter writer wrote, asking if she was pregnant. Brodsky declined to release the letter itself. It has been more than three weeks since Stacy Peterson vanished. Since then, authorities have said they believe the death of Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio – whose body was found in a bathtub in 2004 – was a homicide staged to look like an accidental drowning. Peterson has not been called a suspect in Savio’s death, but authorities have said they suspect him in Stacy Peterson’s disappearance. Illinois State Police Captain Carl Dobrich told the Chicago Tribune that 64 officers are now assigned full-time to investigate Stacy Peterson’s disappearance and the death of Kathleen Savio. Dobrich also told the newspaper that detectives have found evidence Peterson may have violated Bolingbrook Police Department policies, violations that could be serious enough to jeopardize his $6,000 monthly pension.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CHICAGO – A former police sergeant named as a suspect in his wife’s disappearance has received an unsigned letter describing a supermarket sighting of his wife elsewhere in Illinois, his attorney said Thursday. Drew Peterson received the letter Wednesday but didn’t open it until Thursday, attorney Joel Brodsky said. Peterson immediately called the Illinois State Police and his attorneys, he said. Brodsky said Peterson hopes the letter, which describes a sighting of a possibly pregnant Stacy Peterson in Peoria, will lead authorities to his wife. Pamela Bosco, a close friend of Stacy Peterson’s family, scoffed at the idea. She said the family has received “tons of letters,” signed and unsigned, from psychics and others claiming to know the missing woman’s whereabouts. last_img read more

Donegal motorists urged to take part in National Slow Down Day

first_imgToday is National Slow Down Day with motorists across Donegal being asked to reduce their speed.An Garda Síochána will conduct a national speed enforcement operation “Slow Down”, supported by the Road Safety Authority between 7am today and 7am tomorrow.The objective is to reduce the number of speed-related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads. Five people have lost their lives on Donegal’s roads so far this year.The aim of “Slow Down day” is to remind drivers of the dangers of speeding, increase compliance with speed limits and act as a deterrent to driving at excessive or inappropriate speed.Gardai advise drivers of the following:· 24 – hour road safety speed initiative · Adjust your speed to all the prevailing road, traffic and weather conditions· Protect your community – Make the choice to abide by every speed limit to make the roads safer for allIn terms of road safety, 2018 was the lowest on record with 146 road deaths, however it is still 146 road deaths too many. We can never be complacent about road safety. Excessive and inappropriate speed is a major contributory factor in road traffic collisions, further confirmed by the recent RSA report on fatal collisions between 2008 and 2012 which found that excessive speed was a contributory factor in almost one third of all fatal collisions during that time.The higher the speed, the greater the likelihood is of a collision happening and the more severe the outcome of that collision. As a general rule a 1% reduction in average speed will bring about a 4% reduction in fatal collisions, and this is why reducing motorists’ speed is essential to improving road safety.Chief Superintendent Paul Cleary, Roads Policing Bureau sid National Slow Down day is about making our roads and our communities safer. He said “Excessive or inappropriate speed causes serious injuries and fatalities and is completely unacceptable as it affects every member of the community. The vast majority of drivers drive safely within the speed limits, and it is most welcome, but there still remain those that do not. We will continue to focus on non-compliant drivers who, drive in excess of the speed limit and pose a risk to themselves and other road users. Each time a vehicle speeds excessively or inappropriately, it could result in a serious or fatal collision. Please check your speed and support Slow Down day, not only on the day, but every day.”Chief Superintendent Paul Cleary said the first three months of 2019, there has been a 46% increase in speeding detections compared to the same period in 2018.“There is a considerable amount of advance notice via print, broadcast and social media for safety initiatives such as this. There are drivers who see and hear this but still choose to break speed limits. Please don’t be one of the drivers detected speeding on Slow Down day or any other day, and choose to drive safely”Ms. Moyagh Murdock, Chief Executive, Road Safety Authority said speed is a contributory factor in almost a third of fatal crashes each year, in this country. “You may not think that you are driving very fast, when in reality it could be life threatening to vulnerable passengers like children or older persons and especially dangerous to pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. It’s worth considering that if you hit a pedestrian at 60km/h only one in ten will survive.“Hit at 30km/h and the outcome for the pedestrian is greatly improved as 9 out of ten will survive. That’s why it is so important to have days like today, to remind drivers that they need to slow down, not only for their own sake, but for the safety of their passengers and vulnerable road users. So please, don’t put yourself under pressure to speed, give yourself plenty of time to arrive at your destination by setting out earlier on your journey, and watch out for vulnerable road users.”The operation will consist of high visibility speed enforcement in speed enforcement zones, which now number over 1,000, as well as the delivery of a road safety message through the use of national, local and social media.Government Departments, Local Authorities, Public and private sector fleet operators have been invited to participate in the initiative by circulating employees with the key message to “Slow Down” and whether driving for business or private purposes, to always drive within the speed limit and at a speed appropriate to the prevailing conditions.· As of 22nd May 2019, there have been 58 road fatalities, an increase of two on this date last year.· From 1st January – 31st March there have been 36,014 speeding detections (+46% on same period in 2018).· From October 2018 campaign, GoSafe checked the speed of 164,032 vehicles with 276 detected travelling in excess of the applicable speed limit.· From May 2018 campaign, GoSafe checked the speed of 132,188 vehicles with 211 detected travelling in excess of the applicable speed limit.· From October 2017 campaign, GoSafe checked the speed of 176,521 vehicles with 322 detected travelling in excess of the applicable speed limit.Donegal motorists urged to take part in National Slow Down Day was last modified: May 24th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGardaiNational Slow Down Daylast_img read more

Audio Mixing in Premiere Pro’s Clip Mixer

first_imgDo you have advice for working with Premiere Pro’s Clip Mixer? Let us know in the comments. Control your audio mix at the clip level using Adobe Premiere Pro’s clip mixer panel.Cover image via Shutterstock.When you’re working in Adobe Premiere Pro, don’t always assume you have to  jump into Audition or another program to perform a proper audio mix. Premiere offers you plenty of tools with which to work, including audio effects as well as track and clip mixer panels. The clip mixer, in particular, often gets overlooked, mainly because it doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as the track mixer panel. The clip mixer panel allows you to control keyframing on a clip level and is very powerful and efficient when used in conjunction with the effect controls panel. Let’s take a step-by-step look at how we can quickly mix our audio using the clip mixer panel.Step 1 — Set up Your Display OptionsFor the first step, I want to get Premiere set up for an audio mixing workflow. To do this, I’ll first open up the clip mixer panel by selecting Window > Clip Mixer. I can customize the displays on my clip mixer panel meters by control-clicking directly over the audio meters. This will allow me to specify if I want to show peaks and whether I want them to be static or dynamic. I can also show valleys and channel volume. Once I have the clip mixer panel set up, I’ll go down to the timeline panel and make sure I have my clip keyframes displayed by pressing the Show Keyframes button and choosing Clip Keyframes.Step 2 — Select an Automation ModeThe next step prior to mixing my audio is choosing an automation mode. This will tell the clip mixer fader bars how to react during a live mix. The clip mixer panel provides two different automation modes: latch and touch. During recording, touch mode will snap back to your previous audio levels when you release the audio fader bar. In latch mode, the fader bar will latch to its current position when released. Once I select an automation mode, I’m ready to mix.Step 3 — Write KeyframesNow that I’ve set up my display options and selected an automation mode, I’m ready to mix my audio. To record a live mix, I simply need to turn on the Write Keyframes button right next to the Mute and Solo buttons. Now, anytime I play back my audio and adjust my fader bars, the changes get recorded with keyframes. In addition to mixing volume, I can also adjust panning and channel volume. After recording, I can see all of the keyframes displayed on each corresponding clip in the timeline and also the Effect Controls panel.last_img read more

Mike Gundy Has High Praise for Freshman Darrion Daniels

first_imgIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! Darrion Daniels was one of the most intriguing prospects coming into this season for me. Mike Gundy noted early on that he would likely be one of the few true freshmen to play but, as Gundy is wont to do, hedged by saying that you don’t know how dudes are going to perform until the lights come on.Daniels performed tremendously in his first game, racking up three total tackles and a half sack. Gundy praised him on Monday.Here’s Darrion Daniels’ first career sack. pic.twitter.com/OnYJJfnwsr— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguy) September 8, 2015“Physically, he’s a little further ahead than players we’ve had in the past here,” said Gundy. “He’s a 300-pounder, he’s strong, he’s got a good background and he’s more mature than most freshmen are. “He was able to stay healthy in camp. He has made plays in practice, and he has held his own against the offense. His cardiovascular shape is pretty good. When you can stay healthy through camp and absorb information, you have a chance to play as a freshman. “At Oklahoma State, we haven’t had as many at that position, mainly because we haven’t gotten that many 300-pounders. Most of the time, we’re bringing in guys around 250 or 260 pounds and have to develop them into that position.”Gundy went even further, though. When asked how he compared to James Castleman when Castleman was a freshman, Gundy gave a surprising reply.“(Daniels is) a little further along (than Castleman).”As some on Twitter noted, that should mean Daniels is catching outs from Mason Rudolph any day now.@kylefredrickson can we expect him on offense sooner then?— cg (@cg0012) September 7, 2015last_img read more
