Martha R. “Marty” Wilhelm, age 70 of Batesville, died Saturday, May 21, 2016 at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Born February 13, 1946 in Batesville, she is the daughter of Lillian (Nee: Niese) and John Suttmann. She married Alvin Wilhelm April 12, 1969 at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg. Marty was a teller at Fifth-Third Bank 23 years before retiring in January of 2008. She was also a member of St. Louis Church.Marty grew up in a large farm family. An excellent cook, her family teased that she never learned to scale back. She would always cook more than was needed and would “encourage” you to eat more well after you’d eaten all you could. But with hospitable being the word to best describe her, that was just Marty. Her tator tot casseroles and potato salad were family favorites. Some of Marty’s interests included watching Dancing With the Stars, Wheel of Fortune, I.U. Basketball and Duke Basketball, although no one in the family could figure that one out. She enjoyed spending time at the beach and always looked forward to the regular trips of Gulf Shores Alabama or Panama City Beach Florida. After retirement, she also enjoyed meeting friends for coffee at McDonald’s. Her true passion though, were her grandkids. Marty loved nothing better than spending time with them and would do anything for them.She is survived by her husband Alvin; daughters Jennifer Lents of Batesville, Michele Hutchek of Speedway, Indiana; sons Brian of Osgood, Indiana, Christopher of Batesville; sister Clarissa (Chris) Adams of West Chester, Ohio; brothers Paul Suttmann of Batesville, Cletus Suttmann of Oldenburg, Albert Suttmann of Sacramento, California and eight grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Alvina Herbert, Sarah Jones and brother Wilbur Suttmann.Visitation is Tuesday, May 24th, from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home with a Divine Mercy Chaplet service at 4 p.m. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 25th, at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to St. Louis School or Wilhelm Grandchildren’s Education Fund.
Indianapolis, In. — The top consumer advocate in Indiana says up to 3.8 million Hoosiers had personal information compromised in the Equifax data breach. Consumer Protection Division director Betsy Isenberg says it’s up to residents to take steps to protect their information.Consumers can complete an Equifax security freeze here or access the state website to place a “freeze” on credit here. Using the “freeze” option does not protect your personal information but will protect your credit if someone tries to access it.Isenberg urges consumers to limit shopping online while using a public Wi-Fi can increase your risk of being compromised. She also says great care should be used when sharing personal information online.Equifax has changed the terms of service post-breach, the terms now says the non-arbitration agreement applies to credit monitoring only, not to the breach.
0Shares0000Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young’s displays have been sufficiently impressive to earn him a first England call-up since 2013LONDON, United Kingdom , Dec 31 – Manchester United wing-back Ashley Young was Sunday charged with violent conduct after he appeared to elbow Dusan Tadic during his side’s Premier League match against Southampton.The Football Association decided to take action after footage emerged of Young landing a blow on Tadic’s stomach area during Saturday’s goalless draw at Old Trafford. “Young’s charge follows an incident during Saturday’s game against Southampton which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video. He has until 5:00 pm today (1700 GMT) to respond,” an FA statement said.Young, who joined United from Aston Villa in 2011, returned to the England squad in November after a four-year international absence.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

Not all change is evolution the way Darwin meant it.Roaches check in, and they also check out: Those omnivorous pests have outsmarted engineers again. Even though they like sugar in the wild, they have learned to avoid sugary-tasting poison in roach traps. Sure enough, you can watch the smarter bugs in a video clip on Live Science. Stephanie Pappas headlined the story, “Yikes! Cockroaches Evolved to Avoid Sugary Baits.” The authors of the paper in Science claimed that the German cockroaches “rapidly evolved an adaptive behavioral aversion to glucose.” They spoke of glucose aversion as a “gain of function adaptation” that “emerged” in their study population.The scientists did not state, though, if the glucose-averse roaches represent a new species. Darwinian evolution is not just about changes of adaptive behavior within a species, but the arrival of new species. If the glucose-averse roaches are interfertile with the wild type, no evolution has occurred. In the Live Science article, furthermore, one of the paper’s authors admitted that glucose avoidance could have been an ancient trait that surfaced under the new environmental condition of encountering man-made bait traps. “Some plants produce toxic bittersweet compounds that roaches would have needed to avoid before humans came around.”Even worse, the glucose-avoiding roaches may be less healthy. In Science Daily, that same co-author admitted they grow more slowly in the lab without the environmental stress. “Cockroaches have to adapt to a varied and unreliable food supply, and glucose-aversion places an additional restriction on obtaining adequate nutrition.” In any case, this is certainly not a case supporting Darwinian evolution—universal common ancestry via natural selection.Name it and claim it: Just claiming something evolved does not make it so. Asking why some flowers close at night, Elizabeth Palermo on Live Science credited evolution. Those plants are “highly evolved,” she said. That’s no better than ridiculing another human as being less evolved than you are. Then she admitted, “scientists are not quite sure why some plants, particularly flowers, evolved this way.” You can’t just say that the trait might be a “highly evolved defense mechanism against a plant’s nocturnal predators.” Without an explanation based on mutation and natural selection, this is mere speculation. For all Palermo knows, plants were designed that way.Negative selection: Some developmental processes involve killing of cells that are not needed in the finished adult form. It happens in the developing thymus, for instance; in PLoS Biology, Caitlin Sedgwick wrote, “To prevent autoimmunity, developing T cells undergo a process called negative selection, wherein strongly ‘self-reactive’ T cells are provoked to undergo apoptosis (cellular suicide) before they leave the thymus.” This is not evolution, either, even though she boasted of “Bringing You Negative Selection, Alive and In Color.” The word “selection” might cause one to think this is about Darwinian evolution. It’s not; the only evolution here is the “evolution [i.e., unfolding] of apoptotic events.”Not everything Darwin said is evolution: Charles Darwin wrote about a lot of things, not all of which support his idea of universal common ancestry via unguided natural processes. A story on PhysOrg is a case in point; “research proves Darwin prediction,” the headline reads, but the principle at issue is whether “productivity increases with species diversity.” Creationists would accept a substantial amount of variation within created kinds. Although the researcher mentioned “evolutionary distance,” the distance doesn’t have to be evolutionary. Creationists acknowledge a lot of morphological distance between a zebra and a zebrafish. Even critics of Darwin recognized he was right about some things. Nothing in the data of this story necessarily supports Darwin’s most famous notion, that zebras are descendants of microbes.Guided variation is not evolution: It’s like a pesky urban legend that won’t die: artificial selection is not evolution. It’s intelligent design, even if the engineers use random variation in the process. Another example appeared on Live Science, where Wynn Parry wrote, “Evolution May Help Build Better Robots.” Then he transferred the design from the engineers to the robots themselves, claiming, “In the real world, animals have evolved the ability to get from point A to B by galloping, crawling and jumping. Now, robots in the virtual world have accomplished something similar.”Turtle embryonic development is not evolution: On Science Daily, the word “evolution” was used in connection with observations of turtle development from the embryo. First, the article said that turtles are “not primitive reptiles as previously thought, but are related to the group comprising birds and crocodilians, which also includes extinct dinosaurs.” Whether that relationship illustrates common ancestry or not, the statement argues against a simple-to-complex process. Then the article confused embryonic development with evolution. Here again, though, was a conundrum: “The study also reveals that despite their unique anatomy, turtles follow the basic embryonic pattern during development.” Even if the shell arrives late in the process, when limb development normally occurs, the highly complex process of development can hardly be used to support the notion that “turtle shell evolved by recruiting part of the genetic program used for the limbs.” Evolution is not a recruiter. That’s the personification fallacy. Yet based on this, one of the researchers stated, “The work not only provides insight into how turtles evolved, but also gives hints as to how the vertebrate developmental programs can be changed to produce major evolutionary novelties“—all that after admitting that these “evolutionary monsters” are unique in the animal kingdom.Data points within natural variation of a species are not evolution: The Chinese found another “new hominin” in a cave based on its teeth. But then, the article on PhysOrg admits, “the size of these teeth all falls [sic] into the tooth size variation of Chinese modern humans.” How, then, are these teeth assumed to be from a different ancestral species? As usual, when the data are unconvincing, more research is needed: “Our excavation shows the cave has great potential perspectives,” the researcher said. “Further excavation and laboratory study of cave development, filling sequence, hominin teeth morphology, dating, and environmental change from the Fuyan Cave as well as some adjacent caves will help better understand the human evolution and adaptive behavior in Southwest Hunan, east Guangxi, and north Guangdong.”This is how scientists get away with claims that evolution is essential to biology, and is supported by mountains of evidence. Why, look at all the scientific papers and articles about it! How can Darwin skeptics claim it is unscientific? Well, we can, and we just showed you why. Ask them for evidence supporting universal common ancestry of all life by unguided natural processes, and this is the kind of fluff you get. They accuse their critics of being people of faith, but Darwinians are people of fluff. Point that out to them, and they become people of froth. There’s nothing as pitiable as people of froth supporting their fluff by faith.
Brand South Africa’s chief executive officer Miller Matola and Lead SA’s Yusuf AbramjeeBrand South Africa has pledged its support for Lead SA’s initiatives in the run up to the 20th anniversary of democracy. The intention is to build national pride and reflect on where the country has gone over the past two decades.Along with Brand South Africa, Department of Arts and Culture, Government Communication and Information System (GCIS), and Proudly SA, four initiatives were launched by Lead SA on 20 September on Vilakazi Street in Soweto. Lead SA’s Yusuf Abramjee kicked off proceedings at Soweto’s famous Sakhumzi’s restaurant.Freedom Friday was the first of the initiatives launched. It is a call on the nation to wear anything that expresses their pride in being South African, every Friday. This includes anything from a jersey of a favourite football or rugby team to traditional wear. In addition to Freedom Friday, Lead SA together its partners will embark on more projects to celebrate South Africa’s heritage as well as 20 years of democracy.Struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada with Minister of Arts and Culture Paul Mashatile and Primedia Broadcasting’s chief executive officer Terry VolkwynThese include 20 Hours of Volunteerism, between the 20 September and Freedom Day on 27 April 2014; Wikipedia Wordathon, to improve South Africa’s digital footprint on the online encyclopaedia; and 20 Memorable Moments, which will retell people’s stories of their most memorable moment in the past two decades.An excited Miller Matola, the chief executive officer of Brand South Africa, spoke about 20 years being a significant milestone for all citizens. “We must all now participate in driving the future we would like to see for ourselves, our children and the generations of descendants who will come after us,” he said. “Brand South Africa is inspired by the launch of the Freedom Friday initiative. We look forward to working with our partners on this initiative, as well as with all citizens to find new ways to celebrate our democracy, our freedom, our nationhood.”Matola explained that through the National Development Plan citizens would be able to achieve a better future for all. “We must each of us play our part to make this a better reality.”He concluded by quoting Nelson Mandela: “Let us never be unmindful of the terrible past from which we come, that memory not as a means to keep us shackled to the past in a negative manner, but rather as a joyous reminder of how far we have come and how much we have achieved.”Just 218 days remain in the run up to 27 April 2014, the anniversary of the day South Africa officially cast aside centuries of discrimination and oppression to form a new society built on a foundation of freedom and democracy. This change marked the beginning of a united, non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and prosperous society.Abramjee explained the importance of having the event on Vilakazi Street. “It is a great privilege to be here today as we make history. It is fitting that we gather in Vilakazi Street in Soweto, which enjoys a prominent place in the history of South Africa … We are here today to start ajourney of reflection and celebration as we count down the days to 20 years of democracy. “Some of you may recall every day since the first vote was cast on that day in 1994, and even the days, months and years before, while others were born to a free South Africa. We have a great opportunity to look towards the future with a greater understanding and appreciation of our past.”The South African story, Abramjee said, was as unique as the people who made up its diverse and vibrant nation. It was a story of great sacrifice and perseverance; it was the stuff of legends.Among those in attendance were Minister of Sports and Recreation Fikile Mbalula; Minister of Arts and Culture Paul Mashatile; Leslie Sedibe, Proudly SA’s chief executive officer; Phumla Williams, GCIS’s acting chief executive officer; struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada; social cohesion advocate Judge Yvonne Mokgoro; and Primedia Broadcasting’s chief executive officer, Terry Volkwyn.
Kolkata Knight Riders finally received the services of Umesh Yadav in this season’s Indian Premier League and were immediately rewarded as the fast-bowler decimated the Kings XI Punjab batting lineup with a four-wicket haul at the Eden Gardens on Thursday. (Scorecard)WATCH: All you need to know about Indian Premier League centurionsUmesh, who missed the first three matches for KKR after being advised rest following a gruelling Test season for India, returned with figures of 4 for 33 in his four overs as the home team defeated KXIP by 8 wickets in front of a packed crowd at Eden.Umesh picked up a four-wicket haul for the second time in his IPL career. His best bowling figures came in a match against Rajasthan Royals in 2013, when he was with the Delhi Daredevils outfit.Umesh’s spell in the death overs against Punjab changed the momentum of the match in Kolkata’s favour as he removed the middle-order with the wickets of Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, Wriddhiman Saha and Axar Patel. The last three wickets came in the 18th over which helped KKR restrict KXIP to 170/9 in 20 overs.”It feels good the shoulder is going on in auto-mode. I’m feeling much better now. This is the first game (this IPL season) so it’s going to get better from here on. (KKR vs KXIP, IPL 2017: Match Highlights)”The Eden wicket earlier didn’t have any grass but now they have left some grass on the pitch. There is good pace and bounce for the fast bowlers so it’s good to have this kind of a wicket in India,” Umesh said at the mid-innings break.advertisementKolkata then pulled off a huge surprise as they opened the innings with Gautam Gambhir and mystery spinner Sunil Narine. Fortunately the move paid off for KKR as Narine smashed 37 off 18 balls with four boundaries and three sixes at a strike rate of over 200. That helped KKR turn the tide and bring the required run rate within their reach.(BCCI Photo)Narine though, is no stranger to opening the innings and has done it on three occasions for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League last season in Australia. Narine’s highest score prior to this innings was 13 while his highest T20 international score is 30.After Narine’s dismissal, KKR rode on Gambhir’s unbeaten 72 and a quickfire 25* off 16 balls from Manish Pandey to overhaul the target with 21 balls to spare and clinch the top spot in the points table. This was Kolkata’s eighth successive win over Punjab in the IPL.

Quarles, once known as the “bolder than most” rapist attacked his victims at knifepoint and sometimes forced the boyfriends and husbands of his victims to watch. In 1989, he pleaded guilty to four counts of rape.Under the law, any offender who serves his sentence and successfully completes his treatment is eligible for release. If the judge decides to release Quarles, the ex-offender would be subject to continuous monitoring and supervision. He would also be required to wear a GPS device.County Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who represents Jacumba Hot Springs and Boulevard said she doesn’t want to see any more sexually violent predators moved into those communities. Jacob argues that people like Quarles jeopardize the public’s safety. “The community doesn’t want them. They’re far, far away from services and this particular one- he’s not safe to be released.” Jacob said.In April, Herman Smith, a sexually violent predator was approved to live on the same street in Jacumba Hot Springs where Alvin Quarles may be moving in. “We have one sexually violent predator that is currently in Jacumba Hot Springs within a mile of this proposed placement. That’s too close. That’s way too close,” Jacob said. The East County supervisor has written a letter to the hearing judge to express her objections, but said she’s doubtful that Friday’s hearing will have any significant effect on the judge’s decision. Unless the placement is found to be close to a facility with children, Jacob said the court usually follows the recommendations by the Department of State Hospitals. “The judges have unanimously just rubbed-stamped whatever the state wants. In my view, it’s not a fair hearing,” Jacob said.
