So I scattered the fixture in this forest. I dare to say that it is a piece of furniture, not a piece of furniture that is left to the owner, but a piece of work that is planned and created together. Well, the word structure has two meanings.Save this picture!© ToLoLo studioSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© ToLoLo studioOne is the combination and mechanism of the various parts that make up the whole. (e.g, earthquake-resistant structure). The other is the whole and various relationships that are created by connecting various elements to each other. (e.g, social structure). Shima’s house created the latter structure.Save this picture!© ToLoLo studioOf course, using the structure of the wooden frame construction, the columns and beams of the structure can be seen in the room, but it is superficial. From the events and creations, floors, walls and roofs can be seen, the shape of the building can be seen, behavior is encouraged, the behavior of the inhabitants and visitors is mixed, and all elements of life are mixed, this house is completed. In this respect, I think the fixture creates a structure that is more than the skeleton of the building.Save this picture!© ToLoLo studioSave this picture!AxoSpeaking of structure, the beauty and newness of the frame tend to be the focus of attention, but when I thought about how to capture it, I came up with “a structure created from work.” It feels like cells are gathered together to make a living thing. It is a living structure that creates independent, yet united objects. Applications are guided by the structure.

Conviction of man shot by police overturned

by ,

first_img Pinterest Twitter Gregory Heath Stoneman Twitter Facebook Local News Facebook WhatsAppcenter_img WhatsApp Previous coverageOpinion of the Texas Court of Criminal AppealsAn Odessa man in prison on assault charges after he was shot by police officers will get a new trial, after the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals this week determined his defense attorney provided ineffective counsel.Gregory Heath Stoneman was shot by Odessa Police Department snipers on June 6, 2012 at his home on Conley Avenue after police say he pointed a shotgun at officers from his front porch. Stoneman’s ex-wife had called police to report he was suicidal.Stoneman, who was shot once in the neck and once in the chest, pleaded guilty in 2014 to four counts of aggravated assault of a public servant and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. But his appellate attorney Randy Schaffer argued Stoneman made that choice without getting critical information from his defense attorney.Ector County District Judge James Rush, and ultimately the appeals court, agreed that Midland-based court-appointed attorney Raymond Fivecoat provided “ineffective assistance.” In May 2017, Rush determined Fivecoat failed to properly prepare and left his client unaware of facts including the possibility of lesser charges that could have led him to reject a plea deal.Fivecoat, who had explained his work in a court filing, did not respond to a request for comment on Friday.If Stoneman is convicted in a new trial, he could face a longer sentence. He had been eligible for parole, but was denied it earlier this month and remains in prison, Schaffer said.Ector County District Attorney Bobby Bland said the appeals court ruling had nothing to do with the case against Stoneman and prosecutors still believe he is guilty.“We’ll look at the case again and make a decision on how we will prosecute — but yes, we have every intention of proceeding forward with the prosecution,” Bland said.Schaffer alleges police “fabricated a story to cover up a bad shooting” and says his client never pointed a gun at police and didn’t see them that night before he was shot.“He’s suicidal, he’s fired a couple shots into the back porch, he’s intoxicated, but he’s not threatening the officers,” Schaffer said, adding later that “They overacted, they shot him and then what are they going to do, say ‘Oops?’”Police have also maintained that the shooting was justified.The appeals court separately rebuked Schaffer, writing in an order passed along to the state bar that he “behaved unprofessionally” and appeared “to violate his duty of candor toward this tribunal.” That stemmed from a motion Schaffer filed in March to expedite Stoneman’s case. He wrote that “The case has been pending for almost ten months on a recommendation to grant relief with no opposition filed by the State.”Prosecutors countered the claims of no opposition “are completely false.”And then Schaffer, who said his comment was misconstrued, went on the offensive, responding that the “… prosecutor should consider taking English as a second language, if it is not too late.” He also accused Fivecoat of “aggravated perjury and, perhaps, tampering with evidence” when he provided an inaccurate account of his representation of Stoneman.“The Ector County District Attorney’s Office obviously has no problem with a lawyer lying under oath as long as he is trying to help the State,” Schaffer wrote in his reply, which was cited by the appeals court.Schaffer apologized but said his position remains the same.“I wear it as a badge of honor,” Schaffer said of the appeals court rebuke, adding that he is sorry for his comment about the prosecutor studying English. “My comment was probably unnecessary as it related to the prosecutor but after all he did file a response calling me a liar.”Asked to respond, Bland said “the response of the Criminal Court of Appeals speaks for itself.”“They obviously chastised him but not us,” Bland said. “We did nothing wrong. We stand by that.” By admin – May 19, 2018 Pinterest Conviction of man shot by police overturned Previous articleTEXAS VIEW: Life skills to know as students transition to adulthoodNext articleMormon leader touts missions adminlast_img read more

DOJ Moves to Dismiss MetLife’s Suit Over ‘Too Big to Fail’ Designation

The non-public motion was filed under seal; the DOJ has until May 18 to file a redacted public version of the motion, according to reports.”Far from presenting systemic risk to the U.S. economy, MetLife is a source of financial stability,” a spokesman from MetLife said in an email to DS News. “We strongly disagree with the arguments laid out by the government in its brief and look forward to responding in court next month.”MetLife sued the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in January to have the designation of “nonbank systemically important financial institution (SIFI)” removed. The FSOC notified MetLife in December 2014 that it had received the nonbank SIFI designation. MetLife is trying to have the designation removed because as a nonbank SIFI, it is subject to heightened regulation which the company says will increase compliance costs, hence increasing costs to consumers without any added safety benefit for the financial system.”The company continues to believe that MetLife is not systemically important under the Dodd-Frank Act’s criteria and has asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to review the decision,” MetLife wrote on its website.Roy Woodall, the Independent Member having insurance expertise on the FSOC, dissented from the Council’s designation of MetLife as a nonbank SIFI because he did not believe that Metlife “could pose a threat the financial stability of the United States if it were to suddenly and inexplicably be in material financial distress and face imminent failure.”According to reports, other nonbanks to receive the SIFI designation were American International Group (AIG), Prudential Financial, and General Electric. MetLife is the first institution to challenge the SIFI designation.MetLife has set up a portion of its website devoted to providing a “central point for information related to the judicial review of FSOC’s designation.” About Author: Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Aspen Grove Solutions Adds Guardian Asset Management to Client List Next: Nevada Lawmakers Recommend Elimination of Foreclosure Mediation Programcenter_img Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
