Saudi heir's death opens door to younger voices - LubbockOnline.com

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — For the second time in less than a year, Saudi Arabia was thrown into the process of naming a new heir to the country’s 88-year-old king following the death Saturday of Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz. That forces a potentially pivotal decision: Whether to bring a younger generation a step closer to ruling one of the West’s most critical Middle East allies. King Abdullah has now outlive...

Jury to begin hearing Texas bomb plot trial - U-T San Diego

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Court records show that Aldawsari had successfully ordered 30 liters of nitric acid and three gallons of concentrated sulfuric acid in December 2010. Aldawsari also kept a handwritten journal in Arabic in which he said he had been planning a terror attack in the U.S. for years, even before he came to the country on a scholarship, and that it was "time for jihad," or holy war, according to court documents. He bemoaned the plight of Muslims and said he was influenced by Osama bin Laden's speeches. U.S. District Judge Donald E. Walter ruled last week that prosecutors can use footage from videos found on Aldawsari's computer, including one in which Ayman al-Zawahri, al-Qaida's current leader, praises as martyrs two unspecified individuals killed by "American Crusaders." Two instructional videos that he also allowed show how to prepare the explosive picric acid and how to use a cellphone as a remote detonator.

Judge blocks union election at American Airlines - Lexington Herald Leader

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
It's a terrible decision for workers," said Candice Johnson, a spokeswoman for the union. "It's workers who are suffering irreparable harm by being denied their democratic right to vote." The union had joined the case on the mediation board's side. Democrats in Congress, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, have taken up the union's cause in letters to the airline. American Airlines spokeswoman Missy Cousino said the company was pleased with the temporary order and the judge's opinion that the airline's legal position would probably prevail. "Now, as we have hoped all along, the court will have a full opportunity to review and rule on whether or not the correct law was applied in the (mediation board's) decision to call for an election," she said. American and parent AMR Corp. filed for bankruptcy protection in November. American is seeking to void contracts with its three current unions, which represent pilots, flight attendants and mechanics. A federal bankruptcy judge in New York is scheduled to rule on American's request next week.

Magic Johnson still smiles in the face of HIV - The Independent

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Magic by his own admission succumbed to more than his fair share. In his case, the consequences were calamitous. On 7 November 1991, in a moment many basketball fans met with a stunned disbelief comparable to the JFK assassination, Johnson announced that he had contracted HIV, and was retiring from the NBA immediately. To understand the shock, you must remember how the world saw Aids back then. The disease was a plague, terrifying and not fully understood. It was associated with homosexuals and drug addicts, and was assumed to be a death sentence. The most famous public faces of Aids were the actor Rock Hudson and the rock star Freddie Mercury, who hid their condition until their gaunt and ravaged appearance made it impossible to deny. Beset by press speculation, Mercury finally confirmed he had the disease on 23 November 1991. A little over 24 hours later, he was dead. Then there was the tennis champion and civil rights campaigner Arthur Ashe, who in April 1992 announced that he had Aids. Ashe, heterosexual and with the most conventional family life, had apparently been infected by contaminated blood used for a transfusion after heart surgery. Within months, he too...

Bill McEwen: Beneath obits lie tales of positive effects on Valley life - Fresno Bee

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Massachusetts during the Great Depression. Mrs. Margosian, 85, worked at Hammer Field during World War II, for the federal probation office and as a medical transcriptionist in Saudi Arabia. When her husband died of leukemia, she donated a year's salary to the Linus Pauling Institute for cancer research. Bob Robinson, 85, was a real cowboy born in Academy and raised in Shaver Lake. World War II took him to the Pacific and duty as a Navy gunner. He put on rodeos in Hawaii, moved to San Diego and then returned home to be the cow boss of Giffen Ranch and participate in cutting horse shows. Dr. Brenton Smith, born in Tonasket, Wash., was 39 years old when he moved to Riverdale after early interests in electrical and nuclear engineering had given way to medicine. Dr. Smith, 67, had a passion for serving patients in the Valley's rural areas and for teaching future family practitioners. And there is Pete Peters, who died Tuesday. Mr. Peters, 94, and his late brother Leon made it big in the Valley and gave back generously. It was Leon who believed the end of Prohibition would be a boon to Valley Foundry because wineries were in need of new and repaired equipment. It was Pete, a self-taught engineer, who later drew up the plans for a circular stainless steel tank tha...

Clarksville reporter begins journey through her genealogy - Clarksville Leaf Chronicle

Wed, Feb 29, 2012
I write for, The Leaf-Chronicle, about black people. In one article, a house had burned down with children inside, in another a blind “negro” servant named Pole Marable was maimed in a train wreck and died. Obituaries were for doctors and upstanding citizens and their children. (Page 2 of 3) It wasn’t until later that the “Happenings Among Colored People” section was printed in the newspaper. The words of Curry rang in my head, “It’s like we didn’t even exist.” It was a reality I knew was true, but still left me feeling a bit defeated. Finding my genealogy was not going to be easy. And that’s when I realized there are documents that show we did exist, it was just going to take more than a “Google search” to find it. This was going to be a pretty, involved task. While at the library that day, Curry, who I was interviewing for a story on genealogy, gave me a lot of tips about researching – how to use everything from death certificates, census records, online websites, microfilm, and more to find tidbits of information. The small pieces add up to make a big picture. She showed me a census record with my great-great-grandfather’s name on it, J.R. Hunt. She took me to a big black book. I was so excited as we flipped through the book, and then the “ah-ha” moment happened. Our existence was proven. Written in fine cursive was my great-great grandfather’s name, J.R. Hunt. He was married to Iola Ramey in Montgomery County in April 1923. It was a feeling of jubilation, just seeing his name. I plan to go back to the genealogy room at the Clarksville public library and look up more information on J.R. Hunt. So far I’ve learned he was a baptist preacher and had at least three wives. He also had at least a dozen children. Cordell Hunt, my great-grandfather, was one of his children. J.R. Hunt may have preached at a church in Hopkinsville, according to my father, and in 1930 he Iola Hunt and six children lived in Providence, Ky. In speaking to genealogists, I’ve learned so much about research and history. I’ve called upon my older uncle, my cousin and genealogy researchers to help me along the way. I have so much I want to do, including talking to my grandfather, Samuel Green in Hopkinsville, my aunt Susie and my only grandmother, Eunice Spencer in Detroit. I know I will learn a lot from the researchers in my family and some things I may not...

Remembering Two Splendid Journalists - American Journalism Review

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
You want to find the human moment?that's your challenge as a reporter. And you have to be on the scene to do that," he said during the 2004 meeting at his Maryland home. An Arabic speaker of Lebanese descent, he prided himself on blending in and keeping a low profile. In Iraq, he shunned bodyguards and armed drivers. He didn't like traveling in armored vehicles. "They draw too much attention," he said. "People get nervous. They won't talk to you." During our three hours together, Shadid described his reporting strategy. "You can cover a story from above or below. You can cover high politics or more of a street sentiment, which often is ignored. You can listen to what the people are saying and feeling and thinking, or you can report from a press briefing. It depends on how much you want to be the eyes and ears of a story," he said as he walked toward a bookcase. He returned with a dog-eared copy of Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski's "Shah of Shahs," depicting the final years of Iran's Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who was toppled in 1979, and the buildup to the revolution. The foreign correspondent had covered civil wars, revolutions and social conditions in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. Shadid read the book in college and found it "an inspiration" for his life's work. "His writing is evocative, very sparse," he said as he settled down on the couch and began paging through the slim volume, pointing one of his favorite passages. Asked why Christmas decorations were still hanging over the mantle in March, he replied, "Because Laila likes them there." His home was a shrine to the Arab world. The ornate couch had been shipped from Cairo. The stunning wall hangings were from Iran and Afghanistan. There were carved silver boxes decorated with camel bone from Yemen. There were plush oriental rugs and pillows decorated with tiny mirrors. But there was a distinctly American touch as well: A Green Bay Packers cap was prominently displayed in his office. "I am crazy about them," Shadid said. While he grew up in Oklahoma City, he graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, about a two-and-a-half hour ride from Green Bay. Shadid generously shared his expertise with colleagues. In July 2006, Hezbollah guerrillas made a daring raid into Israel, kidnapping two soldiers. Shadid was the only Washington Post correspondent in Beirut at the time and one of the few Western journalists in the region. He was on his way to the port city of Tyre when I caught up with him by mobile phone. At a time when U.S. news outlets were shuttering foreign bureaus, AJR wanted to look at the consequences of not having seasoned reporters based in regions that commanded international headlines. I needed on-the-scene information and contacts. In the whirlwind of a breaking story, Shadid took time to help. Through a series of e-mails and phone calls from a seaside hotel 10 miles from the Israeli border, he rattled off the names of news organizations that had rushed personnel to Tyre from Asia and Africa. During a phone conversation, I could hear bombs exploding in the distance. No, he wasn't in any danger, he said. The firepower was headed in the oppos...

Dr. Marxen Was on Way Home from Softball Game When Crash Occurred - Patch.com

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
I felt like my father was a superhero when I read the glowing notes on his bulletin board from patients thanking him for giving them the ability to walk again or work without unbearable joint pain.  He was the kind of doctor who connected with his patients on a personal level, spending extra time to carefully explain their diagnoses and treatment options, even though it meant that he could not see as many patients per day or perform as many surgeries per week as other doctors.  He was proud of his accomplishments as a physician, which were numerous and significant, but he took much greater pride in the less substantial accomplishments of his children.  He and my mother always put us first, encouraging us to set ambitious goals and instilling in us faith in God, love for family and friends, and the value of integrity and hard work.  I can’t imagine life without my father, but I know that his life will be celebrated and that he will be remembered fondly by family, friends, co-workers and patients. A family obituary for Jeffrey Leonard Marxen is posted here, and includes information on a celebration of life memorial at 1 p.m. March 3 at Shadow Mountain Community Church, 2100 Greenfield Drive, in El Cajon.
