She was walking alone, a block from her house in San Pedro, Honduras, in a fuchsia-colored dress, when three strangers leaped on her in the dark. “They ripped open my dress, they insulted me, they threw me to the ground. They punched me, they threw combustibles over me, and they lit me on fire,” said Estrellita Escobar, clasping her scarred forearms at the memory. As a transgender woman in Honduras, she was constantly at risk. She narrowly escaped being abducted, and then would endure another brutal beating on the streets. Escobar said she reported all three incidents to the police. When nothing was done, she fled to the United States. Escobar, a transgender woman from Honduras, was burned and beaten in the street in her Honduran hometown.

Ending this ‘sport’ is the only real solutionThe Union-Tribune asks if it is time to end or alter horse racing, suggesting that this “sport” can perhaps be cleaned up, as racing officials have recently opined, so as to become a safe enterprise for horses.

It is a gambling operation with the animals bearing the mortal risks. And it is no mystery why horses “break down.” Equine veterinarians explain that catastrophic injuries are preventable but inevitable when the industry demands ever more speed in younger horses whose bones are not fully developed, whose minor injuries are masked with drugs to keep the animal performing and who are often viciously whipped. This is not how anyone treats an animal loved and valued beyond its … [Read more...] about Your Say: What is the fate of the sport of horse racing?
San Diegans can drive with little fear of getting a speeding ticket on scores of streets throughout the city — including heavily trafficked stretches of Balboa Avenue, Camino del Rio South, Morena Boulevard, Clairemont Mesa Boulevard and even Zoo Place. The situation is the result of a little known state law that’s vexing cities across California. It says that in many cases officials must raise speed limits or give up handing out tickets using radar or other electronic devices. While many San Diegans would rather see lower speed limits than more enforcement, others have called for allowing cars to go faster, said Wally Wulfeck, chair of the Community Planners Committee, which represents the city’s more than 50 community planning groups.“It depends on the street,” Wulfeck said. “Some say leave it low, other people say don’t slow me down. “In general, there’s not enough (law enforcement) resources to really be serious about all … [Read more...] about San Diego communities have urged officials to keep speed limits low in conflict with state law. Now officers can’t use radar guns on those stretches of road.
It was the day after Christmas when Mirona Constantinescu decided to take a dockless Bird scooter from a café in Bankers Hill to her home just several blocks away.Cruising in the bike lane on Fourth Avenue, the 32-year-old hit the brakes around Laurel Street — but the scooter didn’t stop. “I pushed the break again, and I heard this beep, and the scooter starts going faster,” she said. “I had to make a very quick decision. I just veered into a parked car.”Constantinescu ended up in an ambulance with a broken wrist and has been doing physical therapy ever since. “It was so very, very scary,” she said, “and it happened in a split second.”This is just one of countless incidents that have resulted from faulty dockless scooters, according to the Consumer Attorneys of California, a trade group representing personal injury lawyers throughout the state. “These are big issues that our members are seeing,” said Nancy … [Read more...] about As concerns mount about injuries from faulty dockless scooters Bird pulls repair in-house
