Woman bites and stabs boyfriend after he asked her for sex

first_imgAuthorities in the Florida Keys are reporting that they have arrested a woman who reportedly bit and stabbed her boyfriend after she became angry about him asking her to have sex.The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office reported that they were called to Fishermen’s Hospital around 6:45 a.m after a man came in requesting treatment for a stab wound.The victim identified as Michael Lozano Flores, told authorities that he suffers from insomnia and after being unable to sleep that night, he asked his girlfriend if she would have sex with him because it helps him sleep.Flores says the request turned into an argument in which his girlfriend Vanessa Nicholson began hitting him and biting him before she ultimately grabbed a 12-inch kitchen knife and stabbed him in the shoulder.“Vanessa became upset when he asked for sex and told him all he cared about was sex,” Flores said in the police report.When authorities questioned Nicholson about the incident, she told them that Flores attacked her and she was forced to stab him in self defense.Authorities eventually made the decision arrest Nicholson because of the inconsistencies in her story.last_img read more

United beaten on Premier League opening day

first_imgWherever you are in the world the start of a new football season gives that unique combination of excitement and expectation.  This was the same last Saturday, Feb. 11, as Pattaya United kicked off the new 2017 Thai Premier League season with a visit to Police Tero FC (formerly BEC Tero) in Bangkok.A large enthusiastic crowd set the tone as the game started at a frenetic pace.  In the first 20 minutes Pattaya had the best of the opening skirmishes with captain Lee Won Young skillfully organizing the side with a commanding presence.  The pace of Picha U-Tra down the right flank kept the Tero defense busy and Pattaya could easily have opened their account with the chances they created.However, as the game wore on Tero grew into the match and cracks started to appear in the Pattaya game plan.  The half time score of 0-0 was a fair reflection of the action that had been enjoyed by the noisy crowd.The start of the 2nd half once again saw a finely balanced contest between the two sides but Pattaya were becoming increasingly careless in possession.  In the 60th minute Tero took advantage of this to hit Pattaya on the break and a fine finish from South Korean Kim Dong-Chan saw the hosts take a 1-0 lead. A major problem for Pattaya was that they had started Wellington Priori on the left hand side of midfield with him switching him to the right hand side for the 2nd half.  This was leaving the side unbalanced as Wellington is a natural centre midfield player, and he was certainly missed there as Pattaya’s three central midfield players were largely ineffective.Pattaya United’s Chaiyawat Buran (10) carries the ball downfield against Tero Police FC at the Police Stadium in Lak Si, Bangkok on Saturday, Feb. 11. (Photo/Pattaya United FC)As the game progressed Pattaya searched desperately for an equalizer and they were unlucky in the 76th minute when Peeradon Chamratsamee had his best moment of the game when his fine volley was well saved by the home keeper.The game was put out of reach In the 77th minute as Tero once again caught Pattaya on the break and Michael N’diri was brought down in the box by Supahanan Bureerat.  N’diri picked himself up to convert the penalty, giving the home side a rather flattering 2-0 advantage.The game ended in rather farcical circumstances as a melee on the touch line ended up in Pattaya’s Miprathang Supravee and Tero’s Kalifa Cisse being set off.  Despite a long consultation between referee and linesman they got the wrong Frenchman as N’diri should have been dismissed and not the unlucky Cisse.Despite this opening day defeat for Pattaya there were many positives that could have taken from the performance.  The introduction in the second half of Chaiyawat Buran gave the side greater balance down the left side and Milos Stajanovic worked tirelessly throughout the 90 minutes as the lone striker.  It was also good to see new keeper Somporn Yos constantly dominating his 18 yard area.This coming Sunday things do not get any easier for Pattaya United as they welcome local rivals Chonburi FC ‘Sharks’ to the Nongprue stadium.  However, if lessons can be learnt from this opening day result, Pattaya United can look forward to a successful 2017 campaign with great optimism.Other results from the weekend saw Sattahip based Siam Navy FC lose 1-0 at Bangkok United and Chonburi FC gain a creditable 2-2 draw away at Buriram United.last_img read more

Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest Cancel Fire Restrictions

first_imgSubmitted by The Olympic National Park Due to notable widespread rain with resulting decrease in fire danger, Olympic National Park and Forest have lifted all fire restrictions as of September 09, 2015.  The restrictions included a ban on campfires outside of developed areas as well as some campgrounds.  Fire restrictions are typically lifted when a significant amount of precipitation is recorded in local weather stations and the fire danger has decreased dramatically.   Rainfall amounts on the west side of the Olympic Peninsula have reached 11 to 12 inches since the end of August, with amounts up to one to two inches on the northeast side.Fire restrictions were implemented on June 25.  This was unusual for the Olympic Peninsula, but was necessary due to a dry winter and impacts of long-term drought across the Park and Forest.  Additional fire restrictions and area closures were implemented by other land management agencies throughout the Olympic Peninsula.  National Park Service and U.S. Forest Service firefighters responded to over 20 fires within the park and forest this summer, ranging from burns of less than ten acres to the 2,800 acre Paradise Fire.Olympic National Park information: www.nps.gov/olym/Olympic National Forest information:www.fs.usda.gov/detail/olympic/alerts-notices/ State and county area burn bans: www.waburnbans.netAbout the National Park Service.
