Police search home of Las Vegas woman who found finger in her chili at Wendy’s

June 23, 2018 0

Friday, April 8, 2005

Las Vegas police searched the home of Anna Ayala on Wednesday, looking for evidence related to her claim that she found a finger in her chili at a San Jose, California Wendy’s outlet. A dozen officers conducted the search at Ayala’s home at Maryland Parkway and Serene Street at about 4 p.m. local time (23:00 UTC), according to witnesses at the scene.

“They put guns to us and handcuffed us and threw us to the ground in front of all my neighbors,” Ayala told the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday evening. “They treated us like trash, like terrorists. It’s the worst nightmare,” Ayala said.

“I’ve been dragged through the mud. We’ve been treated like animals. I’ve been through too much,” Ayala told the San Jose Mercury News on Thursday evening.

Although police have not named Ayala as a suspect in the case, San Francisco ABC 7 is reporting that the search warrant may be related to Ayala’s dead aunt. Ayala disputed the ABC 7 report.

“I would like to know who she is and why I wasn’t invited to her funeral,” Ayala told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Ayala stated that she does not have a dead aunt. She also denied reports that a cooler had been seized from her home during the search. Ayala also said that her teenage daughter, Genesis Reyes, had torn shoulder ligaments as a result of the search. The Las Vegas Review-Journal ran a photo of Reyes wearing a sling in their Friday edition.

However, Ken Bono, a friend of the Ayala family, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that police had taken a cooler during the search.

“Basically they kicked the door open. They pulled everything out of the closet,” her roommate told a Las Vegas news crew, in a report aired on NBC11 News.

In San Jose, police spokeswoman Gina Tepoorten confirmed to reporters that investigators had served the warrant in cooperation with Las Vegas police on Wednesday, but she refused to reveal specific details about the warrant.

“We’re going to conduct a thorough investigation into this case and our investigators are talking to everybody involved, and that includes customers at Wendy’s at the time as well as the finder of the finger,” Tepoorten said.

Wendy’s is offering a US$50,000 reward for information leading to the source of the finger.

“It’s very important to our company to find out the truth in this incident,” Tom Mueller, Wendy’s president and chief operating officer told Associated Press. “We believe someone knows exactly what happened, and hopefully the reward will encourage this person to come forward.”

Wendy’s claims that their internal investigation shows that the finger did not end up in Ayala’s chili through any of the ingredients in their supply chain.

“With all the facts we have, we find no credible evidence to indicate that Wendy’s was the source of the foreign object,” Mueller said.

Business has fallen off dramatically at Wendy’s outlets in Northern California since the finger was discovered on March 22.

“This has been an ordeal for all of us. Hopefully there will be a resolution soon,” Wendy’s spokesman Bob Bertini said.

The Wendy’s outlet where the finger was found, located at 1405 Monterey Highway, just south of downtown San Jose, is owned by Fresno-based Jern Management.

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou survived a close confidence vote early Saturday morning. The vote was 153–145 for Papandreou.

Upon winning, Papandreou stated he may step aside if necessary. Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos stated a new government would be formed to last until the end of February. Venizelos has been proposed as a interim Prime Minister to succeed Papandreou.

Opposition leader Antonis Samaras demanded immediate elections. He stated, “The masks have fallen. Mr. Papandreou has rejected our proposals in their entirety. The responsibility he bears is huge. The only solution is elections.” The confidence motion came about after Papandreou proposed a referendum on the Greek bailout plan. After fierce opposition from other European leaders, the referendum was scrapped on Thursday.

Survival! What Would Create an Emergency Survival Event? How Should We Begin to be Prepared?

by

Robert LaurelIn today’s environment, there are many events, both natural and man-made, that are possible. We all must become aware of these events and begin now to prepare our family for them. We have time now to prepare, but unfortunately, we may not have time after the event occurs. This article will briefly identify some of the events that may happen and how to prepare for them.*Totally unexpected events such as families or groups becoming lost on hiking trips or other outings. *Being trapped inside a stranded or disabled car away from well-traveled areas where assistance is unavailable.*Storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, fires, tornadoes, or other unexpected disasters. *Economic collapse either domestic or foreign.* Hostile invasion by another nation or sources closer to home.*Complete loss of our electrical grid and therefore loss of everything including the use of all or some of our electrical and communications equipment. What would our families do if they were unable to communicate with other members of the family or even emergency services? Today we take this for granted. *Other disasters, life-changing disasters can happen at any time.These events can last for a short period of time or for days, weeks or even months. Life as we know it could drastically be changed and could become a serious survival event for us and our families. Plan ahead, begin preparing today, is one of the most important things that families can do. Where do we begin? First, prepare by admitting to ourselves and our families that events can happen and that the need to prepare must become a priority. Today time is on our side, in an emergency event resources may become nonexistent in a matter of hours. For example, groceries shelves could become bare in a very short time, gasoline or other fuels could run out and what about drinking water, food, and medical supplies?Next, begin educating ourselves as to what are the minimum survival tools, survival skills, food, medical supplies and other necessities that we will need to stay alive and exist. There are countless educational books, survival courses and articles available to help us plan for what supplies and skills we will need to have a better chance of survival. The internet is a good source to begin our search, but remember if the grid is lost so is the internet. We must be prepared and have on hand printed reference guides to help us survive.Having disaster survival gear where we can access it in a hurry can be the difference between surviving and becoming a victim of the disaster. We must not let the list of necessary gear overwhelm us, instead, we need to develop a family plan and begin to purchase the most basic of these items. We must begin somewhere, for most of us it will take time. Time is important as we cannot know when an event will happen. Prepare to survive at school, office, home or in our car in the event of an emergency or natural disaster. In any of these situations, we must start now to be prepared. Each family member must know their own responsibility in case of an emergency and be comfortable with it, this helps to prevent panic, Develop a plan and most of all practice on what each family member will do in an emergency. Schedule regular drills to practice so that everyone is prepared.In some emergency events we may have to suddenly abandon our homes, do we know where we will go? Should we have a plan? Knowledge is power and there are times when we will need to rely mostly on ourselves. Wilderness survival could be the only way to get by. When in the wilderness our survival skills and abilities will be tested as many of us have never been far away from all the conveniences that we enjoy. Many of the early settlers survived in the wilderness and so can we if we prepare. In summary, these are the steps to begin this important task;*Admit there is a need*Educate ourselves and our families*Develop a comprehensive plan*Begin to assemble the items needed to survive remembering that today, time is on our side*Practice and drill

U.S. House Ethics Committee to examine congressional press secretary vandalizing Wikipedia articles with government computer

June 21, 2018 0

in Uncategorized @ 1:08 am

Sunday, August 19, 2007

This article mentions the Wikimedia Foundation, one of its projects, or people related to it. Wikinews is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Timothy Hill is the congressional press secretary working for U.S. Representative David Davis (R, TN-1) in Washington, D.C.

This news story originally broke as an article appearing within the August 11, 2007 edition of the Knoxville News-Sentinel (Tennessee) in which Hill first denied any personal involvement in the “blanking” vandalism of the Wikipedia articles David Davis (Tennessee politician) and Matthew Hill (Matthew Hill is a Representative within the Tennessee General Assembly and older brother of the press secretary) during a first interview with a KNS reporter. Hill later called back the KNS reporter for a second interview in which he reportedly admitted to using a government computer within the Washington, D.C. congressional office of U.S. Rep. David Davis to “edit” both the David Davis and Matthew Hill Wikipedia articles .

Hill repeatedly blanked six to eight paragraphs of reference text at each article pertaining to both U.S. Davis’ and Tennessee Rep. Matthew Hill’s political lobbying and/or campaign finance connections to Altace, Hoechst AGand former King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. CEO John M. Gregory. Hill’s Wikipedia article edits were then linked through the article histories back to Rep. Davis’s congressional office via an IP (internet protocol) number to the U.S. House of Representatives Information System.

Other interesting Wikipedia articles edited with the history detail revealing Rep. Davis Davis congressional office IP number (although not attributed to Hill) includes John Leslie (porn star) and sports professional Ray Jackson. The vandalism at the Jackson article was not directed toward the sports pro, but rather at a congressional staffer of the same name who is employed at the House Rules Committee.

The rules of the U.S. House Committee on Standards for Official Conduct (more popularly known as the U.S. House “Ethics Committee”) oversees ethics education and conducts investigations of ethical matters pertaining to House members of the U.S. Congress and the members’ congressional officers and staff members, including investigating within the scope of campaign activity:

  • No campaign activities allowed in any congressional office or room (including district offices)
  • No use of congressional office resources (including equipment, supplies, or files) for any campaign purpose

The scope of duties for a congressional press secretary is traditionally limited toward preparing internal documents within a congressional office (i.e.: “press releases”) that are later disseminated to the news media outlets, writing up and producing newsletters to mail to the constituents back within the congressional district, and serving as a contact person within a congressional office for news reporters.

There is also an IP number indication that U.S. Rep. David Davis’ congressional office has also been anonymously “shadowing” online blogs with at least one blog (The Tennessee Waltz) originating in East Tennessee with content that was critical toward Rep. Davis for his voting against the federal 2007 Animal Fighting Prohibition Act. The legislation passed this year without Davis’ vote and was signed into law by U.S. President Bush.
