School shooting ‘conspiracy theorist’ arrested after tormenting families: Police

first_imgBlakeDavidTaylor/iStock(NEW YORK) — A school shooting “conspiracy theorist” was arrested on Monday after allegedly harassing families associated with the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, calling the children involved “crisis actors,” according to police.Wolfgang Halbig, 73, was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of personal identification in Lake County, Florida, and accused of tormenting Sandy Hook parent Leonard Pozner and others connected to the deadly 2012 shooting.The arrest comes nearly a decade after 20-year-old Adam Lanza stormed into the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, with a Remington Bushmaster AR-15, killing 20 first-graders and six teachers. The tragedy is one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.“Halbig is a conspiracy theorist who is investigating the Sandy Hook shooting that occurred on December 14, 2012,” the Lake County Sheriff’s Office wrote in an arrest affidavit. “Since the shooting, defendant Halbig has contacted the victim’s family members and have continued to harass them, asking questions and alleging the children involved are crisis actors.”Halbig is a former contributor to the far-right media outlet Infowars hosted by Alex Jones. He has spent years spreading false claims about the shooting, which he called a government hoax aimed at confiscating Americans’ guns, according to court records.In a statement to ABC News, Jones said, “I think Halbig’s obsessed with proving himself right, and I think back when he was first investigating it he was sane. But I think he’s cracked under the pressure. I wish the media would just drop the Sandy Hook thing and stop putting words in my mouth and using stuff that’s happened in the past as a way to bring Sandy Hook back up in my name while at the same time claiming I’m the one bringing it up.”When Pozner and other families associated with the tragedy tried to fight the unfounded claims, Halbig allegedly harassed them, released their personal information or emailed them images that he claimed showed their dead children.Among the identifying information was Pozner’s Social Security number and date of birth. Halbig allegedly sent the information to “hundreds of people via email,” including law enforcement officers and members of the media, according to the arrest affidavit.Pozner, who lost his 6-year-old son, Noah, in the shooting, told police that he had to go through extensive measures to protect his personal identity in the wake of Halbig’s alleged harassment.Halbig allegedly accessed a copy of Pozner’s credit report and emailed it to the FBI and other authorities, claiming Pozner had been using a dead woman’s Social Security number illegally, according to police. The alleged harassment targeting Pozner dates back to 2017.Halbig was released on $5,000 bond after his arrest and scheduled to appear in court on Feb 24.He could face as much as a year in prison if convicted as charged.

Scale-dependent variation in competitive ability among encrusting Arctic species

first_imgFinding evidence for climate change in the sea has been less easy than on land. As ice-loading of nearshore waters (through ice sheet collapses) seems a most likely signal of climate warming, we looked at communities likely to be affected by changing disturbance, i.e. those encrusting boulders in shallow water. The structures of such assemblages at high latitude are highly hierarchical in which if uninterrupted by disturbance (ice-scour) succession would lead to domination by just a single species. However, unless pecking orders from place to place involve the same specific species, with the same competitive rankings, monopolisation will remain only local. To see how pecking orders varied, we examined variability in competitive performance of common species in a high Arctic lithophillic assemblage at several spatial scales. These were sampled 101, 103 and 105 m apart on the west coast of Spitsbergen, and 106 m apart, achieved by sampling southern Iceland and the Faeroe islands. We found that higher taxonomic membership was the major factor determining overgrowth performance of species. Overgrowth performance of each study species changed relatively little between samples, the same good competitors being top performers in any samples where they occurred. Overgrowth performance of each study species was also most similar in samples at the smallest spatial scale. Apart from this, the performance of each study species did not, however, become more dissimilar with increasing distance between samples. Most noteworthy was that susceptibility to variation in overgrowth performance at the regional 105 m scale altered with competitive ranking, i.e. pioneer and dominant species lost and won nearly all encounters respectively, wherever they were. The performance of mid-ranking species was much more variable. These results suggest that whilst the patterns of succession may differ from place to place, the end results will not. Our study provides data to support the theory that appreciation of scale is crucial to understanding community structure, diversity and potential for response to climate change. If ice-loading (disturbance) in polar waters does decrease, we suggest from our findings that a very small number of encrusting species may monopolise large areas of the shallows. Before this, though, we predict that different mid-ranked species will become more common from site to site, with limited reduction of ice (disturbance) increasing regional diversity.last_img read more

Non-additive response of the high-latitude Southern Hemisphere climate to aerosol forcing in a climate model with interactive chemistry

first_imgA suite of chemistry‐climate model simulations, forced by pairs of anthropogenic forcings [comprising greenhouse gases (GHGs), ozone depleting substances (ODSs), or aerosols], were employed to investigate whether the high‐latitude Southern Hemisphere (SH) circulation response to these forcings is linearly additive, a common assumption in attribution studies. We find that the geographical pattern of sea‐level pressure (SLP) response to a combination of GHGs and ODSs is linearly additive. However, we find significant differences in the SLP response when combining GHGs and aerosols compared to the sum of the individual forcings, a non‐additivity that is currently masked by the dominance of the ODSs forcing. This non‐linearity also results in changes to the SH split jet. These results were obtained using a coupled chemistry‐climate model, indicating that the non‐linear response is due to chemical interactions between the forcing agents. As such, future simulations investigating a post‐ozone hole Southern Hemisphere climate should consider this chemical interaction.last_img read more

News story: £10 million to develop vaccines against global infectious diseases

first_imgThe UK government will give £10 million of funding to the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) to help develop vaccines against emerging infectious diseases.The £10 million is UK-aid funding that prioritises helping low- and middle-income countries.CEPI is a global coalition that was formed in response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. The epidemic killed more than 11,000 people.The importance of CEPI’s work is highlighted by outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases seen across the world in the past year, including the ongoing outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo and outbreaks of Lassa fever in Nigeria and Nipah in India.Since its launch in 2017, CEPI has received more than $740 million of funding from governments and charitable organisations around the world.The £10 million funding is in addition to the UK’s investment of £120 million for the UK Vaccine Network (UKVN). The UKVN helps to develop vaccines and vaccine technology for epidemic diseases.The UKVN funds 78 research projects that are developing vaccines against diseases that can cause epidemics. The UKVN is prioritising vaccine development for 12 pathogens, 5 of which are also prioritised by CEPI.The 2 initiatives working together is further shown by the development of a promising new vaccine platform by Imperial College with UKVN support. The platform recently received further funding from CEPI to progress towards clinical use.This funding from the UK government comes as CEPI celebrates its second anniversary at the World Economic Forum in Davos.Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock said: Diseases like Ebola and Lassa fever tear communities and families apart, causing untold amounts of harm and suffering. As a global community, we must keep trying to find new ways to beat diseases like this and making them a thing of the past. We have a proud history of being at the forefront of tackling diseases around the world, such as the Ebola outbreak in 2014, and will continue to do so by backing this vital work with CEPI to help protect people everywhere.last_img read more
