The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office alerted the public that a Carmelina Kohler was missing, last seen by her husband on Monday.Authorities say Carmelina and her adopted daughter Crystal Marie Kohler were heading to a nail salon on 12th Street and US 1, however, Crystal returned to their home in Carmelina’s blue van without Carmelina.Police say they found Carmelina’s phone on 27th Avenue and Aviation Boulevard, but she had no reason to be there.Now, the adopted daughter of Carmelina has been arrested in Vero Beach. She was arrested and charged with Grand Theft Auto and driving with a suspended license.Carmelina is still missing. She is described as 5’7” tall and weighing 160 pounds. She has shoulder length red and brown hair. The van she was driving is a 2018 Blue Chrysler Pacifica with the Florida license plate MATLAA.
JOCKEY QUOTESSANTIAGO GONZALEZ, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “She’s a superior horse. She runs in better races than these other horses regularly and she showed her class today.“She has a lot of speed. I can wait and wait with her and I know she can still get there with her speed.” KENT DESORMEAUX, VELVET MESQUITE, SECOND: “She’s not fond of soft ground. I think she ran her eyeballs out but she got beat a nose in a situation she doesn’t care to be in. Not to mention, she’s been off a while so I don’t think it would have mattered as much if she was racing with one under her belt.“Her future is very bright. She’s coming back from a laceration on her hind end as well and that always causes concern. You can wonder if she’ll be the same. Well, she’s the same.” JULIEN LEPAROUX, AGELESS, THIRD: “No real excuses. The course is the same for everybody. She had a little layoff, but she ran her race. It looks like she came back good and hopefully, she’ll be good for the rest of the year.”TRAINER QUOTES JAMES CASSIDY, PRIZE EXHIBIT, WINNER: “I didn’t think she’d have any problem (coming down the hill for the first time) unless she started idling trying to figure out what the heck this is all about, which she has a tendency to do.“But being that he (Santiago Gonzalez) had her surrounded, she didn’t have any time to think about that, so that was a good thing. I was a little upset we were that close, but when it opened for her, he rode her perfect, and she’s a hard horse to ride. You could see down the lane she was out there in the clear and kind of looking around, so she can be difficult, but she got it done.“Gonzalez is really a good rider. If he keeps finding his skills, he’ll be one of the best riders here, if he isn’t close to that already.” ARNAUD DELACOUR, AGELESS, THIRD: “I thought everything went pretty good. She had a good trip and she was finishing, so we’re pretty happy with the race she ran.” NOTES: The winning owner is Deron Pearson of Valencia who campaigns as DP Racing. Cassidy indicated the Grade II Buena Vista Stakes at one mile on turf Feb. 20 would be next.
Irish Water workers carry out work in Drumkeen today. Pic by Donegal Daily.BREAKING NEWS: More than a dozen Gardai have been despatched today to patrol a Co Donegal village after Irish Water contractors were involved in a stand-off with residents.Residents in Drumkeen were woken from their beds at 7.20am to the noise of workmen drilling and digging holes outside their homes.Gardai – including two plain clothes detectives – have been on duty in the village since. Angry residents in one estate have since insisted that the contractors re-fill holes dug outside their homes.However the contractors are continuing to fit meters outside homes where residents are not at home today.Residents say the contractors – who are paid hundreds of euro for each fitted meter – said they would return tomorrow morning to continue their work.Cll Gary Doherty had been involved in some early morning negotiations with GMC Sierra, the contractor. “We will be up at 7am tomorrow again to make sure they don’t fit meters,” said one angry resident.“We have to send a message to the Government; we’ve had enough of austerity and we will not be paying any water charges.”All the protests today have been peaceful. Two garda patrol cars have been stationed in the village all day.A nearby resident also ordered Irish Water to leave his private lane when workmen arrived there shortly after 2pm.There is a tense atmosphere in Drumkeen this afternoon; with residents planning more protests tomorrow.

QPR are assessing the fitness of forwards Heidar Helguson, DJ Campbell and Jay Bothroyd today.Rangers are hopeful that Helguson will be available for Saturday’s game at Blackburn following a groin problem, which would a timely boost for them given that Djibril Cisse is suspended.Manager Mark Hughes is hoping Bothroyd and Campbell, who have had hamstring problems, will also be able to join the squad.Hughes should have a clearer idea by this afternoon whether the trio are likely to be fit in time for the match against his former club.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

KANSAS CITY — There could come a point in the not so distant future where Bob Melvin and the A’s will have to decide who will throw out the first pitch in a potential wild card game.Tossing out an experimental opener, like Liam Hendriks in New York last year, doesn’t seem to be an option this time around. He’s needed for the last inning, first and foremost, but the 2019 A’s have a pitching staff delivering consistently enough that unorthodox methods are far from necessary.If the wild card …
More precise tests continue to fail to find dark matter or dark energy. How long do scientists get to look for occult phenomena that may not be real?Astronomers believe in dark matter because it fits the big bang theory and their concepts of the age of the universe. But they cannot find it, no matter how hard they look. Here’s what recent news says:Dark-matter hunt fails to find the elusive particles (Nature). The subtitle says that physicists are beginning “to embrace alternative explanations” for the elusive material.Physicists are growing ever more frustrated in their hunt for dark matter — the massive but hard-to-detect substance that is thought to comprise 85% of the material Universe. Teams working with the world’s most sensitive dark-matter detectors report that they have failed to find the particles, and that the ongoing drought has challenged theorists’ prevailing views.GPS search for domain-wall dark matter comes up empty (Nature Communications). “Cosmological observations indicate that dark matter makes up 85% of all matter in the universe yet its microscopic composition remains a mystery,” this paper begins. They looked for it in GPS data in the form of domain walls that should indicate the presence of dark matter. “Mining 16 years of archival data, we find no evidence for domain walls at our current sensitivity level.”New Map of Dark Matter Puts the Big Bang Theory on Trial (Space.com). Experts at the Kavli Roundtable commiserated together recently, looking over a new map that fits theory but not reality. “The prevailing view of the universe has just passed a rigorous new test, but the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy remain frustratingly unsolved.”Physics still can’t identify matter that makes up the majority of the universe (Dan Hooper in The Conversation). He begins with admissions of ignorance:After decades of measurements and debate, we are now confident that the overwhelming majority of our universe’s matter – about 84 percent – is not made up of atoms, or of any other known substance. Although we can feel the gravitational pull of this other matter, and clearly tell that it’s there, we simply do not know what it is. This mysterious stuff is invisible, or at least nearly so. For lack of a better name, we call it “dark matter.” But naming something is very different from understanding it.He does not “feel” dark matter from personal experience, of course, because it only affects large, massive objects like galaxies and clusters. What he means is that his theories require it to explain their motions. This sad article ends with defeatism and only a glimmer of hope: “the long-predicted particles associated with our favorite and most well-motivated theories have stubbornly refused to appear,” he says. But it’s not the fault of something that doesn’t seem to exist. He could have said, We have stubbornly refused to face the non-existence of particles we predicted and need for our favorite theories.Perhaps the discoveries of such particles are right around the corner, and our confidence will soon be restored. But right now, there seems to be little support for such optimism.In response, droves of physicists are going back to their chalkboards, revisiting and revising their assumptions. With bruised egos and a bit more humility, we are desperately attempting to find a new way to make sense of our world.Earthbound Antimatter Mystery Deepens After Scientists Rule Out Pulsar Source (Space.com). This article discusses another attempt to find dark matter that failed. As more and more experiments fail to detect dark matter, the experiments get more bizarre and speculative. This team measured gamma rays from two pulsars as possible proxies for dark matter annihilation. It should have detected excess positrons, but did not. “In order to confirm a detection of dark mater [sic], I guess, there’s still a long way to go,” Zhou said. “We have to rule out all these astrophysical processes.”Hunt for dark matter is narrowed (Science Daily). A snipe hunt for axions at the University of Sussex came back empty. It’s beginning to sound like a broken record: “Physicists hunting for dark matter in the universe have been sent ‘back to the drawing board’ after a new study has ruled out the existence of a sought-after particle in a wide range of masses.”Do dark matter and dark energy exist? (Phys.org) The continued non-detection of dark things in the universe is causing some to think outside the box. Astronomer André Maeder from Geneva University has come up with a cosmological model based on “scale invariance of empty space” that doesn’t need either dark matter or dark energy.Maeder’s discovery paves the way for a new conception of astronomy that will raise questions and generate controversy. “The announcement of this model, which at last solves two of astronomy’s greatest mysteries, remains true to the spirit of science: nothing
“It’s great to be back in the World Group. There’s a lot of time between now and February for us all to improve so that we can improve our chances of advancing further in the World Group in 2013.” 18 September 2012 Raonic then saw off debutant Nikala Scholtz 7-5, 6-4, 7-5 to leave Canada within one match of victory after the first day’s action. It was left up to Raonic, the world number 15, to secure victory for Canada. In a clash of the number ones, he emerged a convincing 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 victor. ‘New era of Canadian tennis’“I am proud to be part of this new era of Canadian tennis,” he said after his win. It was always going to be an uphill battle for captain John-Laffnie de Jager and his charges with SA number one Kevin Anderson not available for the tie and number two Rik De Voest out through injury, while Canada featured Milos Raonic, their highest ranked player ever. “It was a great team effort this week starting with the way we practiced, the way we prepared for the tie, and the way we executed and played the matches.” SAinfo reporter Final singles matchIn the final singles match, Frank Dancevic capped the weekend with a 6-2, 6-2 triumph over Nikala Scholtz to make the final score 4-1 in the Canadians’ favour. Canada’s victory meant they qualified for the World Group in consecutive years for the first time since 1991-92. Only 16 nations are included in the Davis Cup World Group. Raonic was dominant from the first ball, getting an early break in all three sets to maintain control throughout the match. “To qualify for the World Group for two straight years shows that we can consistently perform at a high level,” said Team Canada captain Martin Laurendeau. On day one of the clash, Canada’s number two Vasek Pospisil put the hosts in the pound seats by defeating SA number one Izak van der Merwe 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 in the opening match. South African doubles winWith Daniel Nestor, a career Golden Slam winner in their doubles team, the Canadians were confident they could wrap up victory on day two in the doubles’ tie, but they were made to wait an extra day as Raven Klaasen and Izak van der Merwe outplayed Nestor and Pospisil 6-4, 7-6, 7-6. The Canadian Davis Cup team will remain in the Davis Cup World Group after beating South Africa 4-1 at the Uniprix Stadium in Montreal over the weekend. It was the fourth defeat in four years for South Africa in promotion playoff ties. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material

It was an inauspicious start for the Indian men’s archery team at the London Olympics as they shot wayward and lost 27-29 to Japan in the pre-quarter final shoot-off.Unable to draw inspiration from the historic venue that the Lord’s is, India and Japan were tied 214-214 on a sunny, pleasant Saturday morning.That the World No.5 team crashed out even without staging a fight will have to undergo a post-mortem. First things first, there is some friction in the team as coach Limba Ram, was not to be seen when the archers were taking aim.Like in other sport at home, the Indian archers have been comfortable with a foreign coach from Korea.But why Limba Ram was missing and deputy coach Ravi Shankar was sitting inside was quit baffling. Insiders say there is politics taking place in the team and manager Paresh Mukherjee will talk about all this only after the Olympics.There are hints that the archers actually do not meet eye to eye with Limba Ram.The Indians had raised hopes in recent times after doing well in the Guangzhou Asian Games and stages of the World Cup.But the pressure in an Olympics is very different where competing on the big stage does make you nervous.The Indians and the Japanese were tied at 214-214 and in the shoot-out Japan outgunned India 29-27 with the Japanese managing two 10s and a 9, while India had three 9s.At one stage, the Indian trio was almost three points ahead and still had a two-point edge going into the last set of three arrows each. Japan had an 8, 9 and a 10 in the last set, while India had two 9s and one 8, leading to a tie and shoot-out.”I feel it has happened because of the pressure. We tried to hit 10s, but it was always 9s,” said Jayanta Talukdar.Talukdar also confessed that having been afflicted with viral fever made them weak. “All three of us were in bed for two or three days, so our bodies got weak. Yesterday, during the ranking round, I could not shoot properly because of less body power.”Asian Games silver medalist Tarundeep Rai was more optimistic and emphasised that the archers had to focus on the individual event and prove their mettle.Rahul Banerjee admitted the team had its chances but failed to capitalise on it.”We were leading by three points. We all shot well but some of our 8s put us down,” said Banerjee.The women’s team begins its campaign on Sunday and the pressure will now be on them.Deepika Kumari and company did not do too well in the qualification round but given her recent form, she is capable of raising her game.advertisement
