Eventually, the driver was fatally shot by police. Like Us on Facebook The 34-year-old woman was a mother and a dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn. Authorities described Carey as having a “mental illness.” “She had post-partum depression after having the baby” last August, said the woman’s mother, Idella Carey, reports ABC News . “She also suffered from psychosis and was using medication for schizophrenia.A few months later, she got sick. She was depressed… She was hospitalized,” her mother added. According to Idella, Miriam had “no history of violence” and she did not know why she was in Washington, D.C.

Carey was fired from her job as a dental hygienist about a year ago, and had experienced a head injury following a fall, her employer Dr. Brian Evans revealed.

Canada is rendered a colony of the two non-Western superpowers, while the U.S. is left out in the cold, surrounded by its enemies and unable to access that sweet, sweet oil. Calling current trade relations between these superpowers a “new cold war,” Francis believes that the U.S. and Canada need to do what any two businesses would do in the face of an external threat: consolidate.In her controversial new book, ” Merger of the Century: Why Canada and America Should Become One Country ,” Francis lays out her thesis for uniting the two North American countries into one. She writes, “Without dramatic change, Canada will remain somewhat sleepy and vulnerable. The United States will continue to go broke buying foreign oil and cheap goods from Asia, then guarding countries that could and should pay for their own protection and, while they are at it, ‘buy American.'” In an interview with Foreign Policy , Francis calls Canada, the “back-door entry” for the emerging superpowers to enter the U.S. markets, which they are currently somewhat excluded from. She says, “Canada is peripheral to the United States, as Turkey is [to the EU], and you’ll notice that the Chinese start to do business not in the EU, but in the periphery — Bulgaria, Turkey. They just landed a bigcontractfor their avionics, their air-traffic controls. They’re building bridges; they’re building roads.” China has been investing heavily in Canadian energy. Last year, the Chinese state-run companyChina National Offshore Oil Corporation purchased Nexen, a Canadian oil and gas company, for $15 billion. However, she believes that while the U.S.
Report: United to open 787 base in Los Angeles
The establishment of a 787 pilot base at LAX comes as United increasingly looks to deploy its Dreamliners on Asian routes from the West Coast. ARCHIVES: First Dreamliner passengers sing new jet’s praises (October 2011) “Our 2014 international schedule has the 787 flying many routes to Asia,” Howard Attarian, United’s senior vice-president of flight operations, is quoted by FlightGlobal as saying in a September letter to United’s flight operations group. “In August, we told you that we believe this amount of flying warrants a west coast 787 base to reliably support our network. We have decided that LAX is the right location for this 787 base.” United’s trans-Pacific Dreamliner routes from the West Coast include flights from LAX to Shanghai and Tokyo Narita and soon-to-launch 787 routes between Seattle and Tokyo, San Francisco and Osaka and San Francisco and Chengdu, China . Also in western United States, United offers a trans-Pacific flight to Tokyo out of its Denver hub.

United States Steel Corporation : Workers and employers face off at Supreme Court
“These are not cases about arcane rules of organizing, rules like where on an employer’s property can a union talk to employees,” he said. “These are cases that go to the heart of the legal regimes that are necessary to enable unionization.” In one of the union cases, Harris v. Quinn, Pamela Harris, a home-based healthcare worker, sued Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn over a state statute that requires public-sector employees to pay the portion of union dues that do not go to political activities. Illinois, like many states, considers such workers state employees because their payments are administered by the state and covered by Medicaid, the federal health program for lower-income people that is administered by the states. Attorneys say the questions presented in the case are nearly identical to those in the 1977 Supreme Court case that set that standard, Abood v. Detroit Board of Education. The justices hinted in 2012 in the last union case the court heard, Knox v. SEIU, that they may be willing to reconsider whether the compelled payment of union dues infringes on free speech. “Knox put into serious question whether Abood is still good law,” said Marquette University law professor Paul Secunda. “Harris might be the vehicle for overruling Abood, making it more difficult for public unions to raise dues.” The second union case, Unite Here Local 355 v. Mulhall, questions whether agreements between unions and private-sector employers that set conditions for unionizing a workplace violate the anti-corruption provisions in federal labor laws. It is illegal for an employer to provide “things of value” to a union. The case contends that some of the terms in these now ubiquitous agreements are essentially bribes.
