Shackles an affront to 'dignity and decorum' of court, appeals panel rules
By MAURA DOLANcontact the reporter
An appeals court Tuesday struck down a policy of routinely handcuffing and shackling pretrial detainees appearing before judges in the San Diego-based federal court district.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Southern California district has not adequately justified its policy, adopted by the district judges in 2013 on the recommendation of the U.S. Marshals Service. The restraints include leg shackles and handcuffs linked to a belly band by a 15-inch chain.
1. Dan Shapiro, the US ambassador to Israel, said on Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been ignoring appeals to begin talks on ramped up security cooperation with the US based on the assumption that Congress will approve the nuclear deal with Iran.
2. The conclusion of a new astronomical study pulls no punches, stating that “the Universe is slowly dying.” Astronomers have believed as much for years, but the new findings establish the cosmos’ decline with unprecedented precision.
3. The Temple Institute, a 28-year-old organization that has built more than 70 artifacts that can be used when a Third Temple is built, has launched a new project to import frozen embryos from Red Angus cattle in the United States to create a herd of kosher red heifers in Israel.
4. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif’s visit to Turkey was cancelled on Tuesday, when he had been expected to present the Islamic Republic’s recently developed initiative to reach a peace deal in Syria.
5. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will visit Tehran in the coming months as part of a PA effort to strengthen ties with the Islamic republic.

The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is 2 Kings 7:1-2 which reads: "Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the Lord would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof."
Judge Mark Davis is currently sitting on the second highest court of North Carolina. Having been appointed to the North Carolina Court of Appeals by Governor Perdue, Judge Davis is looking to keep his seat for a full term.
Mark Davis is part of a group that calls themselves Fair Judges for North Carolina. Though Judge Davis cannot delve into any issues that could come before him at the North Carolina Court of Appeals, we are eager to hear what he has to say about the court and how it affects our daily lives.

While there may be a plethora of books on consciousness, none is quite like the new Amazon #1 bestseller, Lord Have Murphy: Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace. It’s a funny, sardonic commentary that’s also a brilliant entrée to a new level of consciousness unknown even to many people who have dabbled in meditation, mindfulness and even yoga.
The book’s author Fran Shaw, Ph.D., is a longtime practitioner in a spiritual discipline and an award-winning university writing instructor. Out of her fertile mind has popped Murphy, the star narrator of this journey into this new level of awareness. And Murphy has a wry comment on EVERYTHING!
Murphy demurs from being a teacher—no guru is he—yet his exploration of the nature of this deep new level of conscious awareness is a fun-filled, quip-induced, deeply funny, pathway to the higher self.
As Fran notes, “We hear a lot these days about mindfulness. ‘Weapons of mass instruction are proliferating.’ How to clear the air? To trust what’s in us and that we’re finding our way to it.”
With unrelenting humor, this book tells the tale of Murphy giving it a try, only to discover in himself an extraordinary truth: that contact with the finer energy animating us awakens us to a completely different level of being alive.
Murphy’s satirical comments make readers laugh out loud. The book appeals to both of our natures, the everyday and the higher. For Murphy, the daily ups and downs become the necessary reminders to awaken, and “we don’t have to be a certain way to wake up. Nothing about me needs to change except where the attention is.”

Unbelievable but true. The case of “International Franchise Association vs. City of Seattle” is now being heard in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The franchisers are claiming that a living wage violates their Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The members of the International Franchise Association claim the city of Seattle showed “animus” – or hostility – to corporations because the law goes after corporations as a disfavored minority. That means corporations think their civil liberties are being violated just like ex-slaves of the 19th century. It sounds surreal but the International Franchise Association with outside financial assistance has hired conservative corporate lawyer Paul Clements who is famous for arguing cases before the Supreme Court. It’s a country gone mad. Listen and understand the insanity. WIth my guest Ron Fein of Free Speech for People. The Tim Danahey Show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests.

Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. The show does not espouse a political agenda. Danahey’s strength is to take complex subjects, talk with experts and make them comprehensible and entertaining for average listeners
The NFL sure has seen some excitement so far: suspensions, appeals, practice-field & locker-room fights, highlight plays & some devastating injuries...and we're just going into the second week of preseason ! Get in the "House" this Thursday evening as the fellas discuss what's hot, who's shot, & what you knew (or forgot) heading into weekend 2.
The guys also welcome in special guest Tony Sciarratta, columnist for GMenHQ.com, to break down how the NY Giants will handle the pending contract extension for franchise QB Eli Manning, whether the "G-men" will really be a force in the NFCE (apart from Cruz & Beckham, Jr how many other weapons does the team have?), and how does JPP's absence affect the team (or not)?
In other conversation, the guys wonder: What is the value of 4 preseason games? Between Brady & Roger, who holds the best cards if Judge Berman goes "all-in" on a decision? What should be made of the Geno Smith incident and should NY Jets' fans be happier without him? Caleb will offer up valuable "Frankly Fantasy" advice, while Matt will bring 5 things you need to know from the NHL.

After nearly 20 years serving on the Gaithersburg City Council, Henry Marraffa Jr., a Republican, hopes to move up to the mayor’s seat in this fall’s election.
The former council member is focusing his campaign on economic development. He specifically mentioned the MD-355 corridor, Lakeforest and eastern Gaithersburg in general as all having room to grow commercially.
He touted past efforts to build out the RIO Washingtonian Center, a commercial hub for restaurants and retail stores, despite early criticism of the development.
As for future development projects, Marraffa said that he would like to construct an arena with structured parking on the Gaithersburg Fairgrounds which would serve as a venue for concerts, plays, and high school graduations.
First elected to the city council in 1995, Marraffa began serving three years before former Mayor W. Edward Bohrer died in office. That paved the way for the council to appoint Sydney Katz mayor and served in that office until his election to the County Council last year.
Marraffa graduated from Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring and earned two college degrees: one in engineering from the University of Maryland and a bachelor of business administration (BBA) degree from Southeastern University.
He worked as a contractor, including high-profile projects such as the construction of Disney World and the World Trade Center. He cites his business experience as one of his qualifications for mayor.
Prior to his election to the city council, Marraffa served on Gaithersburg’s board of appeals. He was appointed to the Maryland Physical Fitness Commission in 1985. He lives in Gaithersburg with his wife Donna. They have five children and six grandchildren.
