CHICAGO – A man climbed five stories of an emergency exit to infiltrate a Chicago police station on Monday as officers completed a SWAT training exercise and seized at least two firearms before being shot and injured by police, the chief said.

Police Commissioner David Brown said the suspect was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A police officer was taken to hospital with a sprained ankle.

Brown said the suspect was seen on video leaving the facility and then returning to break into it. He asked where to go to collect personal property from the Homan Square facility on Chicago’s West Side. Then he returned to the building and climbed the fire escape to the fifth floor, where a door had been held open for ventilation as there are no windows on that floor.

Brown said it had not been determined whether the man had gone to the building to collect property, saying the man had an extensive criminal record. It was not immediately clear if the property taken from the man was stored in the building.

He had no other information about the man other than to say he was a resident of Waukegan, a suburb about 42 miles north of Chicago.

Brown said investigators believe the man grabbed at least two firearms that were on a table during the training exercise and pointed them at officers. He said the firearms did not contain live ammunition, adding that they were either empty or contained non-lethal ammunition used for training exercises that sting when hitting a person but do not cause serious injury or harm. of death. He said he did not know if the man had attempted to shoot officers with the guns.

He said the investigation will reveal what the officers in the room knew about the weapons the suspect took.

Brown speculated what officers in the training room saw when the man entered the room.

“These were weapons that were monitored,” he said. “Obviously someone coming from a stairwell outside surprised everyone. Who is this person? Is this person associated with the training? We sometimes have live actors who come in civilian clothes.”

He also said it was likely officers said something to the man when they spotted him, but “we just don’t know what the assailant said.”

He said most of the training participants were tactical officers assigned to specialist units, but a few were uniformed officers assigned to City Hall or Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s home.

The officer with an ankle injury was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition, according to the Chicago Fire Department. He was not shot, Brown said.

The suspect was initially described as being in critical condition with at least one gunshot wound. Later that day, Brown said the man’s injuries were not life-threatening. Department spokesman Tom Ahern said the man was taken into custody and is in police custody at the hospital because he was a suspect in the incident. He didn’t know what specific charges he might face.

The police facility is in a large red brick building which houses evidence and recovered property on the first floor. Some of the police department’s specialist units also work from the building.

Early Monday afternoon, crime scene tape was strung across South Homan Avenue, one block south of the police station and on the same street just north of the building.

A nearby school has been placed on lockdown.

Mountain biking, as its name suggests, is a very intense sport. One that people should treat with the utmost caution and respect. Mountain biking was designed from the ground up to be taken as seriously as humanly possible.

Says no mountain biker, ever.

For many people, mountain biking is much simpler than that. Some people call it an escape, others say it gives them purpose. Well, for Kendall, he has a lot of fun flying over anything in front of him on two wheels (he’s actually been racing for 13 years, by the way).

My workout routine is a bit like pow surfing, ski-pulled sleds, yoga, free weights, and a little secret I call fun.Kendall McLean

Some of you might recognize Kendall as the long-haired, Specialized-clad lighting machine from the BC Cups over the years. Yes, it’s the same guy from the podium. And yes, this video is an accurate depiction of his workout regimen. Eating good food, riding fun trails, and keeping smiles big and nerdy are all essential for success in sports; at least in Kendall’s eyes

great quotes Seriously, I struggle with the monotony of going to the gym; so i try to stay light by doing a variety of exercises that are good for my body and my mental health.Kendall McLean

A consultation on plans to introduce an extra day of teacher training for schools has been launched.

The Welsh Government said the extra day Inset (introducing additional in-service training) would be used ‘to give the education profession more time to engage in professional learning to support the introduction of the new curriculum for Wales and other priorities that will have an impact in the classroom.

This would be in place for the next three academic years and if there was broad support for the proposals, the first additional INSET day would be in the summer term of the 2022 to 2023 academic year.

The Welsh Government said: ‘We recognize that this extra INSET day may cause difficulties for some parents or guardians, and that there may be concerns about the impact of losing an extra day of learning by the learners.

“However, we consider this approach to be essential to enable all practitioners to continue to develop their skills to support changes in the education system in Wales and to make a difference in classroom teaching and learning. longer term. .”

It is proposed that the professional learning provided during the INSET day will be “focused solely on the three priorities of rolling out the curriculum for Wales, reforming the NLA and ensuring fairness in education” and not on “professional learning related to other school priorities or mandatory professional learning (such as health and safety training).

Speaking at the launch of the consultation, Jeremy Miles, Welsh Minister for Education and Language, said: “Research and inspection data reveal that the single most important influence on learner success at within the education system is the quality of teaching and learning.

“It is therefore important to ensure that teachers are supported to consider how the curriculum and other education reforms will impact learner outcomes.

“The consultation indicates that the proposed additional INSET day would specifically aim to support the profession with changes aligned with the roll-out of the curriculum for Wales and other national priorities, such as the reform of additional learning needs (ALN) and equity in education. .

“The consultation will run until October 28, 2022 and I encourage anyone with an interest in the education sector, including practitioners, parents/guardians and learners, to get involved and respond to the consultation.”

    The Children’s Healthcare at Atlanta Training Ground experienced perhaps the best weather of the season on Thursday as Atlanta United took to the field to prepare for their upcoming home game against Toronto FC. A gentle wind snaked through the pitches as players exited the facility, including Matheus Rossetto, who returned to training for the first time since suffering an ankle injury against Seattle on August 6.

    One player who wasn’t on the pitch, however, was Josef Martinez. As The Athletic’s Felipe Cardenas widely reported, Josef was suspended for a week by the club for what would forever be known as the ‘rice and chicken’ or ‘arroz con pollo’ incident.

    Annabelle Tometich/The News-Press USA TODAY Network – Florida / USA TODAY NETWORK

    (Don’t worry about how many images to search to find the right one. Besides, you’re hungry now, aren’t you?)

    The Five Stripes were notably somewhat delayed in their arrival at the training ground on Thursday, but the players immediately immersed themselves in rondos and passing drills. Raul Gudiño and Rocco Ríos Novo worked separately on a variety of goalkeeping practices, including shot-stopping and passing. After full squad training, a number of players remained on the pitch to continue working on a variety of skills. Ronaldo Cisneros, Franco Ibarra and Santiago Sosa put the aforementioned goalkeepers to the test with shots from high above the arch, while Luiz Araujo, Aiden McFadden and Juanjo Purata enhanced some longer passing opportunities.

    Brad Guzan even made an appearance as he got dressed and also took part in some relatively light goalkeeping drills. In true Brad fashion, however, he made his presence known as Gonzalo Pineda addressed the media with a shout on the pitch in reference to the sudden interest in the team, noted by the influx of media at the center of training. Unfortunately, controversy sells and the most recent drama involving Josef Martinez was the main topic of conversation as Pineda, Thiago Almada and Andrew Gutman addressed the media.

    Argentinian prodigy Thiago Almada was the first to take the microphone. He made a point of mentioning that the team does not allow any news from both Josef and Miles Robinson to change their mindset going forward. He said the team as a whole supports each other and the situation with Josef came to a head because of the frustration of the game, stressing that it was something every player experiences. Notably, Almada said Josef had apologized to the team since the rice and chicken incident, but declined to go into specifics, stating that “what happens in the locker room stays in the locker room. . It’s a kind of code. »

    -Cue Pirates of the Caribbean “they’re more like guidelines” quote-

    Almada also spoke about receiving the call up to the Argentina national team, saying it was actually a bit of a surprise. The chance to represent the Albiceleste was clearly a huge deal for the youngster as he said the call-up was both a “huge joy” and a “huge honor for (his) family”. He will travel in a few weeks to join the team in friendlies against Honduras and Jamaica alongside the likes of Lionel Messi.

    Atlanta United Spokesperson captain Andrew Gutman was the next player to speak, specifically saying “good afternoon” to everyone as he approached the microphone after being scolded moments before for saying “good morning” to someone. Much of Andrew’s message consisted of a “just play football and stop worrying about all the drama” vibes, which certainly should be every player’s goal at times like these.

    Gutman respectfully declined to comment on Josef’s situation (don’t blame him). Asked about communication from the front office, he mentioned that Carlos Bocanegra had not spoken to the team about the incident.

    Questions then turned to Gutman’s goal and positioning, and he explained that he and Pineda had discussed taking advantage of spaces that “defenders don’t think about”. He attributed a lot of that to the fact that guys like Araujo, Cisneros, Almada and Moreno can occupy other defenders heavily, leaving him with tons of surprise zone to operate from.

    After the end of the media with Gutman, Gonzalo Pineda spoke. Where Gutman and Almada could only tiptoe over the topic, it was still expected that Pineda would definitely need to elaborate on the Josef Martinez question.

    The Twitter post ratings above give a good overview, but you should definitely make a point of listening to Five Stripe Final with Joe and Sam (and myself as a guest) for Pineda’s comments as they go. as they happened. Gonzo mentioned that he, along with members of the front office (including Steve Cannon), all made the decision to suspend Josef after the rice and chicken incident. However, he mentioned that he really wanted Josef back and that he didn’t feel like they each saw the issue as ‘him against me’.

    Of course, Josef’s frustration did not seemed directed to the coaching staff as the season progressed, either. Thinking back to Josef’s comments from Summer, the only entity he’s directly expressed frustration with is the one in charge of roster building.

    Pineda, however, mentioned that Josef has yet to apologize to him. He also clarified that he had already dealt with other issues with the Venezuelan Viper, indicating that this was not the first feud of Pineda’s term. Gonzo always insisted their relationship was good, and also pointed out vehemently that he and Josef never got physical. He said they stayed 2-3 yards apart in the Portland locker room, despite early reports describing they had to be physically separated. It absolutely bears mentioning here that in a locker room full of players and staff, the definition of “must be physically separated” could have 100 definitions.

    Interestingly, Pineda said that during these difficult and languid times it becomes easier to see who is truly committed to the club. Asked about the need to score goals if the team has any hope of making the playoffs, the gaffer referred to the recent Atlanta United Academy dinner where he espoused the belief system and values ​​of all the club for young children. In his eyes, how can he look these kids in the eye with this message and then put someone on the pitch just to score goals but who doesn’t show those values ​​of commitment and teamwork? Hit.

    From there, Pineda was asked how the club will handle Josef Martinez in the future. His response revealed that any move was not his decision and the whole club is yet to discuss the idea of ​​next season. Moreover, he expects Josef to be back on the training ground on Monday. When questioned further, he also reiterated the same guidelines “code” that Almada mentioned earlier, holding this concept in the highest regard.

    Finally, in reference to Miles Robinson’s situation, Gonzalo Pineda has just said that he couldn’t say much (probably for various reasons) but that the club, team and coaching staff fully support the defender center star.

    For those looking to find out how the team is preparing for Toronto, it wasn’t that style of press conference. Whether it was a sign of the coming death knell for the season or an interior focus on everyone’s part in reference to the drama surrounding the club, the next opponent just didn’t seem to get much. of importance to fans, and this media scrum personified that sentiment. That’s not to say the team isn’t training specifically for the game; on the contrary, comments from Gutman and Almada indicated that they had a game plan, but the big news of the day would still be about Josef. (It also seems like a good time to point out that Lorenzo Insigne did not train today with Toronto due to a personal issue).

    Regardless of the off-field drama, Atlanta United still have five games to play to, at a minimum, prove to a potential new president that they are not inheriting a complete dumpster fire. Players still have jobs to play, and if what Pineda said rings true, now will be the time to see who really wants to wear the badge and help the club regain some of its past status. Hope to see and hear everyone at the Benz this weekend loudly supporting the Five Stripes, regardless of the current status. In the meantime, and now that at least part of the story is here, be sure to let us know your thoughts below.

    TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – A group of hardworking K9s from the Kansas Search and Rescue Dog Association put their best paws forward on Labor Day.

    The class was in training dog session at the Kansas History Museum to practice finding human remains, missing persons and lost items.

    Lessons for the day included finding donated human organs and locating a hidden person.

    The director of the Kansas Search and Rescue Dog Association says, “We find missing people, whether they’re dead or alive, we find missing people. So if you’re missing, if your child goes missing while you’re camping, I have dogs that can find them. If you’re out there and someone’s been missing for several days, I have dogs that can find them. I also have trail dogs who can tell you where they have been which is fantastic and also a very useful tool and I also have another dog who is not here today who is certified to find ammunition”.

    One of the dogs may even use an object like shoes, clothing, or wallets to sniff out a trail.

    “He was bred for it, so once I present him with an article about perfume that’s kind of imprinted in his brain and he’s going to follow that to the end of the line,” the dog handler explains, Wade Waddle.

    The team is made up of 12 people and 15 dogs.

    Training begins at the puppy stage and can last from 18 months to two years.

    “You start by putting something in there and they can see it and when they put their nose to it they get a treat or a toy, whatever their favorite is…it has to be their favorite cause that really inspires them to work for it, that’s their pay,” says Stanley.

    The association offers its services free of charge to law enforcement and firefighters.

    “We are here as a tool to help local first responders find these people as quickly as possible. That’s what he was bred for, that’s why we train him every week to be ready for when we need to be called upon,” says Waddle.

    Stanley says she is proud of the work her team can provide to the community.

    “I’m so proud of them, I’m so excited. You know I’m here with the other managers who go yes! Yeah!, because they’re so good at their job and it’s just… she’s doing it again, she’s so horny! But it’s really fun to do that and it’s also really rewarding because you know you’re building that relationship and that bond with the dog, so that’s fantastic,” says Stanley.

    If you would like to donate or help out as a dog handler, you can email Kasarda.director@outlook.com.

    The SA Air Force (SAAF) Museum’s September Monthly Flight Training Day is the most visible ‘victim’ ahead of the Africa Aerospace and Defense (AAD) exhibit at Waterkloof Air Force Base (AFB).

    The museum’s acting officer, Commanding Major Ntokozo Ntshangase, told defenceWeb that the historic aircraft in the museum’s collection “will figure prominently” in the build-up to the September 21-25 event, that it will fly during commercial days and participate in the AAD air show on the weekend of September 24/25.

    Given the demands placed on old and veteran aircraft flying any number of sorties over a four-week period, it has been decided to cancel the September Flight Training Day, scheduled for this Saturday (September 3 ).

    He said the decision would ensure maximum participation of museum aircraft in the AAD.

    The COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions put an end to museum flight training days which resumed in February.

    This year’s AAD also ended any possibility of the SAAF Museum holding its annual air show at the SAAF’s oldest base – AFB Swartkop in Valhalla. The museum’s air show is the main contributor to funding Swartkop and the museum’s AFB Port Elizabeth and Ysterplaat branches.

    Aviation enthusiasts can have their aircraft repaired at the Rand Air show, to be held at Rand Airport on Sunday, September 4.

    Tickets are now available (from Computicket) for the Africa Aerospace and Defense Air Show on September 24-25, billed as Africa’s largest international air show. The organizers confirmed a significant presence in the United States, with two C-17 Globemaster IIIs, a KC-46 tanker, a KC-135 tanker, a C-130J Super Hercules and an HH-60 helicopter, although only the HH -60 is expected. fly during the aerial parade.

    defenseWeb understands that the SAAF Silver Falcons aerobatic team will be part of the AAD air show, along with Rooivalk, BK117, Hawk Mk 120, A109, C212 and other military aircraft. SAAF Museum participation will include Harvard, Alouette II and III, Kudu, Bosbok and Cessna 185.

    There will also be civilian participation with aerobatic teams, airliners and other non-military aircraft scheduled to participate. There will also be a demonstration of ‘mini-war’ capability by the South African military.

    Denzel Washington picked what he considers the best scene from Training Day, and it’s a scene he isn’t even involved in. The 2000s film offers one of Denzel’s best performances, and is one of the best thrillers of all time, but one scene in particular received the legendary actor’s highest praise.

    Training Day stars Washington as Alonzo Harris, a rogue cop who shows his new partner Jake Hoyt (Ethan Hawke) the ropes. The only problem is that he doesn’t show her how to play good cop, he shows her all the dirty tricks in the book as he turns out to be a corrupt law officer. Harris’s brazen breaking of the law and immense pride ultimately leads to his downfall, as Hoyt’s moral compass leads him to do the right thing and bring Harris down.

    During an appearance on CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast, co-star Ethan Hawke revealed that Washington called one specific scene from the gritty drama movie the best of them all, and it’s the one in which he has no go.

    The scene in question sees Hawke being pushed into a bathtub with a shotgun to his face after attempting to infiltrate a cartel hideout. It’s an incredibly tense moment, and certainly one of the key factors that earned Hawke an Oscar nomination for the role.

    “I remember that day, in particular, Denzel stopped on set and he looked at it for a little while, and he said, ‘Damn it! I’m not in the best scene in this movie,” Hawke recalled.

    It’s hard to choose the best scene from a movie that is full of amazing moments. Washington himself has plenty of brilliant scenes in the action movie, and the “King Kong” scene in particular just might take the crown as the best of them all.
