Due to the very nature of sudden and/or violent deaths, many things can and do go wrong in the first few hours after discovery. Death scenes have a way of bringing together many individuals with various responsibilities and experiences. This unique group can consist of uniformed officers, detectives, crime scene investigators, forensic experts, coroner investigators, medical examiner investigators, as well as prosecutors and police administrative staff. These scenes may also have fire and EMS staff or other agencies trying to do their jobs, not to mention families and onlookers. Because of this often chaotic scene, errors can happen. Let's look at the ten most common mistakes of a death investigation. 1. Improper Response and Arrival to the Scene First, responding officers may not correctly respond to and secure the scene and the immediate surrounding area. Uniformed officers may not stop or detain people leaving or milling around the scene. Further, while waiting for investigation and CSI teams to arrive, it's not uncommon for first responding officers to gather to close to, or directly in the crime scene, inadvertently contaminating evidence. Here are a few other examples of errors from the first responding officers. Failure to notify investigators soon enough, or at all; assuming the cause of death is a suicide or is natural, eliminating the need to treat the scene as a crime scene; failure to detain all persons present at the scene, which might include the suspect; or they may fail to separate possible witnesses and obtain initial statements. Also, failing to make an initial determination of the scene boundaries leads to an insufficient area of protection. 2. Failing to protect the Crime Scene In all death investigations, but even more so in a homicide investigation, crime scene contamination can be and is a significant problem. No other aspect of these investigations is more open to mistakes than the preservation and protection of the scene and subsequent evidence. Paramount to any investigation is ensuring by the first officers on the scene to isolate, protect, and maintain scene integrity as the investigation follows its standard path. This includes the monitoring of paramedics and EMS personnel in the scene as well as identifying them for a future interview. Officers must also watch family members or others in the area to ensure they are not contaminating the scene. After a perimeter is established and is locked down, officers should start a log of everyone entering and leaving the vicinity and the reason why they are there. Also, officers should be observing and taking notes of activities occurring in and around the scene. 3. Not Handling Suspicious Deaths and Homicides All unattended death should be looked at and treated as suspicious, and an experienced officer/investigator should go to the scene. These deaths should be treated as homicides and crime scenes until the facts prove otherwise. Too many departments allow untrained patrol officers to conduct basic death investigations with the assumption of suicide or natural death and with the idea that it is unlikely to be a homicide. Without training, officers could likely miss-interpret a staged or altered scene. If the scene is not handled correctly from the beginning and is later found to be a homicide, valuable evidence can be lost, and the integrity of the scene is compromised at best and at worst, non-existent. 4. Responding with a Preconceived Notion It is imperative that investigators not allow themselves to respond to a death scene with any preconceived conclusion about the case. It's common for investigators to get sent to a scene and given information based on the initial call. If the call came in as a suicide and the initial officer who responds arrives with the mindset of suicide, it is common to treat the death as a suicide and thus shortcut any other investigation. It looks like a suicide, so it must be a suicide, and no other investigation is conducted. This type of preconceived investigation results in fewer photographs being taken, witness statements not being completed, evidence not being searched for or collected, and the integrity of the scene is destroyed. It's not only suicide this can happen on, but reported natural deaths and accidents can also inadvertently be short cut if responding officers conclude their investigation based upon the initial reported call. If then, at a later time, the death becomes suspicious, the officer's reports and any investigative documentation will be lacking valuable information needed for future investigations. The tendency is for the uniformed officer to write the final report and collect the evidence necessary to fit the narrative given to him by the initial call. 5. Failing to Take Sufficient Photographs In today's world of digital photography, photos are cheap and easy to obtain. Back when I started in this business, we used Polaroid™ instant photography and 35mm film cameras. These were expensive, and some departments wanted to limit "unnecessary" photographs in an attempt to stretch the budget. That's not the case today since hundreds of photographs can be taken and stored nearly free of charge. Photos are a way to document the scene and to freeze that scene in time. They are used in court when necessary and may prove or disprove a fact in question. Therefore, it is vital that photographs be taken of the entire scene, area, and location where the crime took place, including any sites connected to the original crime. Remember, you only get one chance at your first chance to document a scene. 6. Failing to Manage the Crime Scene Process The investigator in charge should oversee the investigation and scene documentation. He or she should ensure proper chain of custody and documentation of evidence. They are in charge of maintaining scene integrity. Never allow officers to use the restroom within the residence, or take food or drink from the kitchen. Never allow smoking in the investigative area, never bring food or drink into the scene from an outside source, and always keep non-essential personnel out of the scene area. Designate an area for them to congregate if needed, but it should never be inside your primary scene area. Lead investigators must also direct crime scene personnel on where and what they are to collect. Many CSI staff are well trained and have a good idea of what needs to be done. However, since each scene is unique, the investigator in charge must ensure evidence is adequately searched for and collected. The victim's body should always be inspected and searched for trace evidence prior to being moved or taken from the scene. Not doing so can result in loss of valuable evidence and leave many unanswered questions. Also, and I cannot stress this enough, do not allow anyone to cover the body with anything found at or near the scene! I've arrived on death scenes to find victims covered with blankets officers found on beds, sheets from nearby laundry baskets, or coats covering victims' faces to preserve their dignity. If the body is found outdoors, barriers should be used. Using anything to "add" to and subsequently alter the initial crime scene is always harmful to the investigation. Don't do it and don't allow it. Always stop and look around the scene; look up as much as around. See what is missing or what isn't. What looks right about the scene, and what looks wrong? Is what you are seeing matching what you are being told? Never leave a scene until you are confident every answer to any question you may have has been answered or documented. Remember, this is your only first chance. 7. Failing to Evaluate Victimology Victimology is the collection and assessment of any significant information as it pertains to the victim and his or her lifestyle. It is imperative that investigators know the victim and that they complete a victimology study. You cannot properly investigate a death without victimology. Failing to have a complete picture of the victim will preclude you from developing motives, suspects, and risk factors unique to the victim. These risk factors are usually regarded as high, moderate, or low and based on lifestyle, living conditions, job skills, neighborhood, or anything specific to the victim. This information includes areas such as personality, employment, education, friends, habits, hobbies, marital status, relationships, dating history, sexuality, reputation, criminal record, drug and/or alcohol use, and physical condition as well as facts about the area they grew up in and if different, the one they resided in at the time of their death. Ultimately you need to find out, in great detail, who the victim was and what was going on at the time of their death. The best source of information will be friends, family, employers, and neighbors. Your goal is to get to know the victim even better than they knew themselves. 8. Failing to Conduct an Efficient Area Canvass Properly First, understand the terms "area canvass" and "neighborhood canvass" may be used interchangeably. They are interviews conducted in the field, as opposed to statements taken on the scene or in the station. I will admit that conducting an area canvass can be tedious and very time-consuming. Sometimes, hundreds of contacts can be made without unveiling one shred of usable information. However, it is that one exhilarating jewel that is occasionally discovered that makes the process so rewarding. There are right and wrong ways to conduct an area canvass that will yield better results for the efforts put out. Ideally, patrol personnel and plainclothes detectives should perform separate canvasses. Some individuals respond more readily to an authority figure in a uniform, while others prefer the anonymity of the detective's plain clothes. Since it is impossible to know who will respond more willingly to either approach, both should be employed. This technique will give the investigator the greatest chance of getting vital information. The canvass may be conducted in an area near the crime scene or, conceivably, hundreds of miles away from it. In the aftermath of a bank robbery, for example, the getaway vehicle may be located several counties, or even states, away. Two canvasses should, therefore, be undertaken: one at the original crime scene (the bank) and one at the secondary scene (the vehicle). If a suspect is developed, it may be advisable to perform an additional area canvass in the neighborhood where that person resides to learn about his/her reputation and habits. A complex case may require that a number of area canvasses are completed at various locations. The primary goal of a neighborhood canvass is, of course, to locate a witness to the crime. It is this promise of the elusive witness that motivates the investigator. However, it is not only the “eye” witness you seek. On occasion, it may be just as significant to discover an “ear witness." Someone who may have heard a threatening remark heard gunshots or even heard how and in which direction the perpetrator fled. This information can point the case in the right direction. A witness who hears a homicide subject flee in a vehicle with a loud muffler, for example, could be furnishing a valuable lead. Likewise, intimidating or threatening statements the witness may have overheard could refute a subsequent claim of self-defense. In an officer-involved shooting incident, a witness who hears the officer yell "stop, police!" or "drop the gun!" is invaluable to the investigation. Just as crucial as the eye-witness or the ear-witness is the "witness-who-knows-a-witness." Even though this person may not have first-hand knowledge of the crime, he or she can direct investigators to a person who does and is, therefore, of great value. 9. Failing to Work Together as a Team As with any crime scene, cooperation is critical among differing agencies. But with a death scene, this cooperation is ever more important and ever more strained. Due to the increased severity of the scene, the spotlight, and egos, these scenes can become a disaster quickly. Therefore teamwork is vital, and it is the lead investigator's role to set a tone of cooperation and teamwork. One of the most significant issues in a major case is the failure to communicate information to those working the case. Some agencies seem to want to keep what they know to themselves. This primarily occurs from egos and "turf wars," which will compromise an effective outcome. Everyone involved in the investigation has information gathered from the jobs they were assigned and a lack of communication or an unwillingness to share information discovered for evaluation can prevent the entire team from finding the truth and bringing the case to a conclusion. It's imperative to remember that the cases you work aren't about you, but are for the victim, the family, and, at times the protection of society. A baseball game is won when everyone playing does his or her job and supports every other player in getting their job done. Imagine the bottom of the 9th, the game is tied and the next ball's hit to the pitcher who misses but scoops it up sits down, and refuses to throw or let anyone else take the baseball from them. The pitcher did their job and pitched, but the refusal to share the "scoop" with their teammates resulted in a complete failure for everyone. 10. Command and Administrative Staff Interfering One of the most frustrating mistakes at a death scene investigation is when command staff shows up on the scene with their own agendas which have nothing to do with the actual investigation. Sometimes it's for political appearance or simple curiosity. But unless they are an actual part of the investigative team, they should not insert themselves into the investigation. In many instances, because they're at the scene, command ranking personnel feel the need to direct the investigation. Consequently, they will have investigators running in different directions which have nothing to do with the primary investigation. The result is the loss of cohesive and central command and major miscommunication. Many times, in these situations no one is willing to step up, make decisions, and take control for fear of making the boss mad. The chaos continues and the investigation is compromised, and when the outcome is delayed or not favorable, the command personnel directly responsible for the chaos will not see that they were the cause, but rather, the blame may fall on the lead investigator. Conclusion Death investigations are not always simple step-by-step cutouts. They require real attention and specific actions to protect the investigation integrity. Many of the mistakes mentioned here are from shortcutting and not taking seriously the gravity of the scene you are working. Our job as death investigators, regardless of what function that is, is to get the truth for the victim and bring justice to anyone responsible for their death, if in fact, anyone is responsible. Developing and following strict procedures at every death scene will ensure that investigations are worked properly, and evidence is not missed. Reference: Vernon J.

For years, I've kept a list of dream guests for this show. And as long as that list has existed, Ted Chiang has been atop it.Chiang is a science fiction writer. But that undersells him. He has released two short story collections over 20 years — 2002's “Stories of Your Life and Others” and 2019's “Exhalation.” Those stories have won more awards than I can list, and one of them was turned into the film “Arrival.” They are remarkable pieces of work: Each is built around a profound scientific, philosophical or religious idea, and then the story or the story structure is shaped to represent that idea. They are wonders of precision and craft. But unlike a lot of science fiction, they are never cold. Chiang's work is deeply, irrepressibly humane.I've always wondered about the mind that would create Chiang's stories. And in this conversation, originally released in March 2021, I got to watch it in action. Chiang doesn't like to talk about himself. But he does like to talk about ideas. And so we do: We discuss the difference between magic and technology, why superheroes fight crime but ignore injustice, what it would do to the human psyche if we knew the future is fixed, whether free will exists, whether we'd want to know the exact date of our deaths, why Chiang fears what humans will do to artificial intelligence more than what A.I. will do to humans, the way capitalism turns people against technology, and much more.The ideas Chiang offered in this conversation are still ringing in my head months later, and changing the way I see the world.

Longtime listeners won't be surprised by the length of our Young Bucks segment (came in at a cool nineteen minutes) but we were truly delighted by everything they did this week and literally couldn't help ourselves. We also got into it about the Sad Facepaint Clowns and debated why the Pinnacle doesn't just unionize against MJF. Plus, we vote on what was the most unacceptable thing commentary said this week, and the contenders were strong!
Many of us are content to stand outside the manger and admire the scene. The donkey and cows and shepherds and even Mary and Joseph and the crib make a pretty picture. But what if we were to step into the room? What would we encounter? This Christmas Eve, the invitation is to meet Jesus.
On a special holiday edition of WrestleRant Radio, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau get into their last-minute Christmas movies to watch and then Monday's edition of WWE Raw! They talk Bobby Lashley potentially turning babyface and a possible opponent for him at WrestleMania 38, Omos turning on AJ Styles and what it means for both men going forward, Austin Theory's trajectory, another quality match between Bianca Belair and Doudrop, and why Raw has been better than SmackDown lately. In their reviews of NXT and AEW Dynamite, the duo discuss the Street Fight between Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai, AJ Styles' random appearance on Tuesday night and NXT's relying on main roster stars to boost ratings, Tony D'Angelo's impressive performance against Pete Dunne, Kyle O'Reilly's Dynamite debut and how it sets up The Elite vs. Undisputed Era at some point, what AEW may have in store for the AEW World Championship rematch between Bryan Danielson and Adam Page, how Dan Lambert has overstayed his welcome, certain stars not getting television time, and the star-studded six-man tag team main event.
This week we're discussing every album by ABBA. They need no introduction, but we will say that they are more than just a disco band—ABBA is an all-around pop juggernaut. With hits like “Waterloo,” “Dancing Queen,” and “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!,” it's obvious why they were so huge. But they have a thousand great songs you haven't heard. Grab your platform shoes and get ready.Closing track: “I'm a Marionette” from ABBA: The Album (1977)Spotify playlist on ABBAhttps://open.spotify.com/user/motherpuncherincPatreonhttps://www.patreon.com/everyalbumeverMerchhttps://pandermonkey.creator-spring.com/Instagram:Follow Mike @pandermonkeyFollow Alex @motherpuncherMike's Picks:Waterloo (1974) — Best AlbumThe Visitors (1981) — Personal FavoriteVoyage (2021) — Worst Album, Least FavoriteAlex's Picks:Voulez-Vous (1979) — Best AlbumABBA: The Album (1977) — Personal FavoriteRing Ring (1973) — Worst Album, Least FavoriteAlbums we discussed this episode…Ring Ring (1973)Waterloo (1974)ABBA (1975)Arrival (1976)ABBA: The Album (1977)Voulez-Vous (1979)Super Trouper (1980)The Visitors (1981)Voyage (2021)

Then, they talk about the team's new bout with COVID-19, as the team's Sunday night game versus the New Orleans Pelicans was postponed due to the placement of Andre Drummond and Shake Milton in the league's health & safety protocols, as they joined Georges Niang.

Christmas is a season with nostalgia and tradition unlike any other time of year. More than any other part of the Bible, the stories about the birth of Jesus evoke “scenes” in our minds — scenes of mangers and babies and “wise men.” Over the centuries, many churches have captured these images through stained glass. These scenes are skillfully created from small, colorful pieces to reveal one whole story in a single window. Light comes through the image as if the depiction is inviting us in. This year we will explore these pictures and the light that comes through them into our lives as we get our heads and hearts ready for the ARRIVAL. ▫️▪️▫️▪️ If you call Journey home, you can give here as an act of worship. If you'd like to invest in Journey's mission to reach those in our community and around the world then join us by giving in the Journey app or on our website at https://journeycommunitychurch.com/giving
Sin separates us from God, but God sent His only Son into the world to rescue us from that separation. In this message, Pastor Harrison Conley shares the true meaning of Christmas, which brings an end to all of our fear & the arrival of great joy in our lives through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Once someone has serious red in their ledger, can they ever hope for a chance at redemption? Yelena and Maya have a very different answer to that question than Clint and Kate, and that battle takes center stage in the penultimate episode of Hawkeye. Meanwhile, Eleanor does her best to re-establish some control over the life of her daughter just as Kazi tries to do the same over Maya. These ideas of control and redemption tie into everything from Arrival to A Christmas Carol (and, of course, The Royal Tenenbaums). Join our Storycast crew of Amanda Marcotte, Maeve Adams, and Marc Faletti as we break all of that down and more!

PLUG-IN CAR GRANT CUT FROM £2,500 TO £1,500 - The Government has brought yet another round of cuts to its plug-in car grant. Buyers can now only claim a maximum of £1,500 off the price of a new eligible plug-in car (£1,000 less than before) on models costing no more than £32,000 – £3,000 less than previously. - The plug-in van grant has also been cut to £5,000 for large vans and £2,500 for small vans, with a limit of 1,000 customers per year. Plug-in motorcycles will benefit from a maximum of £500 off and mopeds £150. - Mike Hawes, chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), said the cuts represented "a blow to customers". Original Source : https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/354541/plug-car-grant-cut-ps2500-ps1500 IMMEDIATE CUTS TO GOVERNMENT EV GRANTS - For the second time this year, the Government has announced instant cuts to the electric vehicle grant, with a £1000 reduction in the amount offered on cars taking it to £1500, and the threshold dropping by £3000 so only vehicles under £32,000 now qualify. - The updated Government website lists the cars still eligible for the grant, although it remains to be seen whether price alignments to get under the new thresholds will be announced in the coming days and weeks, as was the case from the likes of BMW, Citroen, DS, Hyundai, Kia, Peugeot, Vauxhall and others when the previous change was announced in March. The new Citroen e-Berlingo and Peugeot e-Rifter in particular have model priced just above the £32,000 point. - Cars no longer qualifying due to reduced price threshold (subject to any price realignments in reaction to the grant changes): BMW i3 Citroen e-C4 Citroen SpaceTourer Hyundai Ioniq Kia Niro Kia Soul Peugeot e-2008 Skoda Enyaq Vauxhall Mokka-e Vauxhall Vivaro e-Life Volkswagen ID.4 Original Source : https://www.companycartoday.co.uk/immediate-cuts-to-government-ev-grants/ NEW GERMAN GOVERNMENT TO REVAMP INCENTIVES FOR ELECTRIC CARS - Germany's new government said Monday it is extending the country's current system of incentive payments for buyers of electric and hybrid cars for a year but then plans to impose tougher requirements for vehicles to qualify for the support. - The economy and climate ministry that was set up when Germany's new government took office last week said it will only provide payments starting in 2023 for “electric vehicles that demonstrably have a positive climate-protection effect.” - For the next year, the current system will still apply, making buyers of electric-only cars eligible for incentives of up to 9,000 euros (about $10,200) and qualifying buyers of plug-in hybrids for up to 6,750 euros. Original Source : https://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/german-government-revamp-incentives-electric-cars-81718327 GERMANY TO BOOST ELECTRIC CAR SALES BY EXTENDING €9,000 HELP TO BUY SUBSIDIES - The government's goal is to see 15 million purely electrified cars in circulation by 2030. So far, Germany has seen only 520,000 of them roll off dealerships' forecourts, according to AFP.This financial support, introduced in July 2020, has played a key role in the record increase in the market share of electrified vehicles in Germany, - In May 2021, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier announced his intention to make the payment process easier for charging stations. “For eMobility to really breakthrough, we must not only provide funding for electric vehicles, but also make the charging process and payment for this more convenient,” Altmaier said.“In future, the charging stations that are open to the public will accept standard credit and debit cards. This means that these charging stations will be open to everyone – including customers that do not own a smartphone. As credit cards work everywhere, this also opens up charging stations to cross-border travel.”.

But with a number of tweaks that mean it's smaller and more efficient than current cars, but still has buckets of room inside. - Arrival announced that it had teamed up with Uber to create a “purpose-built vehicle for ride-hailing.” It's a project with an ambitious deadline, too, with the first models expected to roll off the production line in Q3, 2023. - The Arrival Car is deeply uncool, a box on wheels with an emphasis on maximizing the internal space for passengers. It has the same silhouette as a French-made minivan; you could easily imagine a line of these parked outside a Saturday-morning under 15's soccer match. But, because it wholly rejects the need to be aesthetic for the sake of aesthetics, it's also quite cool.

The premium manufacturer is earmarking about €18 billion for electrification and hybridization alone and thereby emphasizing its clear commitment to electromobility. - With the new models Audi e-tron GT quattro, Audi RS e-tron GT, and the first fully electric models in the compact segment, the Audi Q4 e-tron and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, the electric portfolio has grown by four additional models. By 2025, the company aims to have more than 20 fully electric models in its lineup.

The Lucid Air, for example, has the longest range of any electric car on the market with up to 520 miles on a charge. It's tough to imagine an EV beating that range estimate anytime soon, but if anyone can beat Lucid Motors, it's Mercedes-Benz. - More than one year ago, Mercedes teased an EV with a staggering 750-mile range, called the Vision EQXX. The vehicle will be revealed (in concept form) on January 3, 2022, but before then, the German automaker just released a new teaser for its most efficient car ever. - To achieve a 750-mile range, the EQXX will likely sport a massive battery pack and an extremely low drag coefficient. - Mercedes may not give us full battery details when it reveals the EQXX, but the German automaker promises it will "[increase] the energy density at the cell level by a further 20% compared to the EQS," Original Source : https://carbuzz.com/news/mercedes-teases-new-ev-that-will-destroy-everyone-on-range LIGHTYEAR'S NEW SOLAR EV WILL REQUIRE FIVE TIMES LESS CHARGING THAN ITS PREDECESSOR - While we eagerly wait for Lightyear One the solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) to go into production, its makers have already announced a more cost-friendly version model that will offer twice the range of similarly priced vehicles, - managed to use the car in European summer without having to charge it at all. The car manages this with solar panels that are seamlessly present on its surface and with high-efficiency motors that use up to three times lesser power per kilometer than EVs in the market today, the company claims. - currently offer. And with its solar panels, it will require up to five times lesser charging as well. There is definitely an upgrade coming to the solar panel array on the Lightyear since Two will rely heavily on the panels to achieve this. Another important prospect of the car is its price.
