The boy did not get picked up till around 3:45 p.m.The child’s mother told police her son was in severe pain so she took him to the hospital where they took x-rays and was diagnosed with a fracture to his right leg.Boca Raton police say the boy said he got hurt when his teacher, 24-year-old Estefany Acosta, sat on him because he was misbehaving.Acosta was questioned by authorities and she initially stated that the boy suffered the injury from kicking a metal chair, but later changed her story when school administrators told her the classroom was under video surveillance. “she got nervous and changed her story. Acosta claimed that [the child] could have been injured when she accidentally fell on him,” the arrest report stated.Police reviewed the surveillance video and found that Acosta did injure the child.

Published on November 28, 2018 at 11:04 am Contact Anthony: [email protected] After each Ohio State home basketball game, Keith and Stephanie Wesson wait for their two sons in Section 124 of Value City Arena. They’re not alone, though. Andre and Kaleb have at least 20 family members and friends waiting for them post game. Through high school and in college, the Wesson parents have traveled to every home and away game, and the extended family all have home season tickets to follow. “At the end of every game everyone gravitates to us,” Keith said. “Some people call it the Wesson box.”The ability to play in front of grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts and close friends drove Keith to Ohio State in 1982. 31 years after their father graduated from OSU, both Wesson brothers are now starters for the Buckeyes. They’ll play in front of their family in the “Wesson box” Wednesday night for No. 16 Ohio State (6-0) as the Buckeyes host Syracuse (3-2). Andre is now in his third year at Ohio State, Kaleb is in his second. Both have seen a career-high 24.2 minutes per game in 2018.“Growing up in Columbus, all you hear about is Ohio State,” Wesson said. “You hear about all the games, you go to the games, you’re on campus a lot.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKaleb and Andre have played basketball together since they were six years old, at the North YMCA in Columbus. For years, Keith said people tried to separate them. Kaleb’s 6-foot-9 size and ability led to interest from national AAU programs while Andre didn’t initially receive the same recognition.“We never allowed people to separate them,” Keith said. “If both of them couldn’t play for a team, neither of them could. That was my call.”They attended the same AAU tournaments as members of the Mustang Ballers until Kaleb’s freshman year of high school, when they switched to the All Ohio Red team in the Nike Elite Young Basketball League. The Wesson brothers trained multiple times a week together with Renny Tyson at the Intense Basketball Training Academy, also in Columbus. Even after starting college, Keith said that they still train with Tyson over the summer.Whether it was video games or basketball, the two dueled almost daily. When they weren’t playing one-on-one in the driveway of their Westerville home, they were indoors, playing NBA 2K or Madden.“When they were young, my wife and I thought they were going to kill each other,” Keith said. Eventually, the fighting turned into encouragement as teammates. Andre said that Kaleb is his “biggest supporter.” Courtesy of Ohio State AthleticsIn Andre’s junior and Kaleb’s sophomore year at Westerville South High School, they came up one game short of the state championship. Playing on the Ohio State hardwood in front of 10,664 people, it was the biggest crowd they had played in front of. Huber Heights’ Wayne High School defeated the Wessons and Westerville South, 65-57. It was just the second loss of Westerville’s season.Kaleb received an offer from Ohio State near the end of his sophomore year. His father urged him to at least visit other schools. But Kaleb didn’t bother. He only wanted to be a Buckeye.“A lot of people think it was a package deal but it was not,” Keith said. “We always talked about how it would be nice to play together in college though.”At that point, Andre was ending his junior year and hadn’t received as much attention from the high-major Division I schools. His senior year, everything changed. Butler, Texas, Richmond and Xavier showed interest. But in April, then-Ohio State head coach Thad Matta offered. He could play alongside his brother at his father’s alma mater. Even when Matta left after Andre’s freshman year, current Buckeyes’ head coach Chris Holtmann had recruited Andre from his Butler days and developed a close relationship with him then.“Once I got my Ohio State offer, he definitely was pushing me,” Andre said of Kaleb. “He was a big part of the process.”The ensuing season, their final year together in high school, Westerville South returned to the state championship. Same arena and even bigger crowd of 13,722. This time, the Wesson brothers aided Westerville South to the state title in a 57-55 win against Lima Senior. “The biggest thing we learned is that the lights can’t be too big,” Andre said. “Some of the lights got to us, and our senior year we had everyone back and won it.”Less than one month after scoring 14 points in the state championship win, Andre committed to Ohio State. On the court, the Wesson brothers complement each other well. Off the court, they couldn’t be more different.Kaleb is a 6-9 forward with a well-developed post game. He’s able to both score and pass out of the post efficiently, Westerville South head coach Ed Calo said. Andre, a 6-foot-6 wing, guarded all five positions in high school and now can guard four spots in college.“They are night and day. Sometimes it’s hard to believe they grew up in the same household,” Keith said. “Kaleb will talk to anybody, he wants to be on the go, very outgoing. Andre is the opposite, he’s very reserved. He doesn’t open up to just anybody.”Wednesday night, when the Wesson brothers take the court, Andre will see his parents in section 124. They’re a constant reminder of the most valuable lesson he said he’s learned at Ohio State.“You need other people,” Andre said. “You can’t do anything by yourself to be good or be successful.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week The guilty plea by South Korea-based Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and its U.S. subsidiary, Samsung Semiconductor Inc., was announced at Justice Department headquarters. The court papers are expected to be filed within 30 days in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. A printed statement from Samsung says the company “strongly supports fair competition and ethical practices and forbids anti-competitive behavior.” WASHINGTON – Samsung, the world’s largest maker of memory chips for computers and other gadgets, will pay a $300 million fine to settle accusations it secretly conspired with industry rivals to fix prices and cheat customers, federal officials said Thursday. The Justice Department’s acting antitrust chief, Thomas O. Barnett, said seven Samsung employees are not legally protected from further prosecution under the company’s guilty plea to a felony price-fixing charge – an indication the seven may individually face criminal charges. “That’s a decision for us to make moving forward,” Barnett said. He added that prosecuting executives – not just the companies where they work – is an important deterrent against future price-fixing. Samsung’s plea agreement caps a three-year investigation by the Justice Department into makers of the chips, a $7.7 billion market in the United States. Two of Samsung’s leading rivals earlier paid fines totaling $345 million and pleaded guilty of involvement in a scheme the government said boosted prices that consumers paid for computers between 1999 and 2002. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Kofi Annan, former UN secretary general will be a speaker at the Summit. (Images: One Young World Summit) 1 300 delegates from 190 countries at the One Young World Summit in Johannesburg.MEDIA CONTACTS • Amanda Mahlobi Communications Officer Waggener Edstrom +27 11 550 5400 RELATED ARTICLES • One Young World Summit hits Joburg • SA is getting plenty right • Unpacking the National Development Plan • SA to host One Young World 2013 • Young people: own your destiny!Romaana NaidooSouth African struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada reminisced about his first encounter with former President and international icon Nelson Mandela, affectionately called Tata or Madiba, among 1 300 delegates from 190 countries at the One Young World Summit in Johannesburg.Paying homage to the former statesman during a special session on Knowing Nelson Mandela, Kathrada said, “When I met this man, when I was at school, he asked me questions about myself and what I was going to do with my life. . . He made me feel so comfortable and equal to him that I felt proud I could go back to my school friends and boast that I knew a university student.”Speaking about the trial that led to their conviction, Kathrada revealed how Madiba insisted on using the opportunity to make a political statement: “What he said, what we all followed when we gave evidence, is to go into the box, repeat your political views and do not apologise. Even if it’s a death sentence, we don’t appeal.”A visibly emotional Kathrada spoke of the racial segregation experienced at the hands of their prison guards: “Of the seven of us I was the only Indian. The first thing we had to do was change into prison clothes. I was given long trousers, while Madiba and all my colleagues were given short trousers. The rationale was that all blacks, regardless of their age, were children and children wore short trousers.”Kathrada was joined on stage by a teary-eyed Francois Pienaar and delegate Nobulalu Lali Dangazele to share intimate insights into their relationships with Madiba.Pienaar, who captained the South African rugby team, the Springboks, to victory in the 1995 Rugby World Cup, revealed the moment he first encountered Mandela saying: “I get a telephone call from Mary, Mr Mandela’s assistant, who says: ‘He would like to have tea with you’ – incredible.“My first thoughts were: ‘Why? What does he want to talk to me about?’ Then I became a chick and started worrying about what clothes I would wear.”He revealed: “I remember his booming voice and the size of the man. He took me into his office, poured me tea and for about an hour we sat and talked about life, politics and sport.”Mandela surprised the rugby team when South Africa reached the final of the world cup, Pienaar said. “We were getting ready for the game and there was a knock at the door… it was Mandela. What was he wearing? A Springboks jersey.“Often you hear great speeches from leaders, but do they follow through? Mandela is someone who did.”Pienaar quoted the former statesman, saying that sports can awaken hope where there was previously despair and has the potential to drive awareness of wider societal issues.Mandela Rhodes scholar, Lali Dangazele, spoke of how, after her first meeting with Madiba, he transformed into a father-like figure. She added that Madiba’s firm belief in the power of education left a significant impact on her: “He firmly believed that education is the silver bullet – the key that unlocks liberation.”Kofi Annan speaks “global issues”Following suit another special session ensued with the Kofi Annan Dialogues: Live. During this session delegates from South Africa, El Salvador, Libya and Nigeria spoke to the Nobel Peace Prize laureate via live-stream on a Google Hangout.Issue tabled ranged from the security in Nigeria and El Salvador to the on-going Syrian crisis.Annan said we are now living in a time of unprecedented change, and that as growth develops, new challenges arise at national, regional and global levels. He spoke about international issues such as youth unemployment, climate change, food and nutrition security, international security, transnational crime, sustainable development, terrorism and religious extremism.He added that people have the power to make a change if they organise and use the strength of a collective voice, and that problems are without visas and passports.He continued, saying that in order to address these problems, it is important to begin with cohesive societies. The three core pillars of a cohesive society, according to Annan, are peace and stability, development, rule of law and respect for human rights.“Change takes time. It is not an event, it is a process,” he said.Gender equalityDuring an on-the-spot survey at the summit, 48% of attendees believed that gender equality is the number one global human rights issue.According to a statement from One Young World, “From career-based discrimination to crushing poverty and violence, women’s rights are routinely violated on a daily basis. Violence causes more death and disability worldwide amongst women aged 15 – 44 than war, cancer, malaria and traffic accidents combined. Of all the illiterate adults in the world, two-thirds are women. Globally, women make up just 17% of parliamentarians, and of the FTSE 100 companies, only three have women CEOs.”Delegate speakers for this session included Mohammad Almunaikh (Kuwait), Amanda Dufresne (United States of America(US)), Ilwad Elman (Somalia), Sally Hasler (Hong Kong), Kaierouann Imarah Radix (Guyana), and Emily Revess (United Kingdom(UK)).Dufresne, a rape survivor, spoke out about sexual violence being a silent epidemic. Holding back her tears, she shared her personal story, saying, “In the US recently, statistics show up to one in five women will be raped in their lifetime.“We need to talk to young boys about respecting girls’ minds, bodies, and souls; to treat them as equals,” she said.According to Elman, one in three women will be beaten and raped in their lifetime. She runs the Elman Peace and Human Rights Centre in Mogadishu with her mother, Fartun Adan. Most recently, Elman’s organisation established Sister Somalia, the only safe-house in Somalia. It is dedicated to providing support to survivors of sexual violence.Youth unemploymentAn insightful session on Youth Unemployment, on day three of the summit on 4 October, highlighted that despite the vast majority (80% of attendees) believing the number of unemployed young people in their country will not fall in the next 12 months, even more (91%) believe it is possible to solve the problem.Almost a quarter of the planet’s youth are neither working nor studying.Youth unemployment is a high priority for the One Young World community, which overwhelmingly elected to have the topic on the summit agenda for the first time.The delegation, James Eder (UK), Adelard Kakunze (Burundi), Jeremy Lamri (France), Rukayat Olamide (Nigeria), Efehan Danisman (Turkey) and Yiwen Wu (China), looked at youth creating their own employment opportunities.Danisman said, “73 million young people will be unemployed this year,” while Kakunze added that “Burundi is among 15 countries with the highest unemployment rate in the world.“It is about being proactive and about taking responsibility for your contribution in the world,” said Eder.According to Johannesburg executive mayor, Mpho Parks Tau, “It is important that the youth work together with their leaders to find solutions to the challenges of youth unemployment, and the One Young World Summit 2013 presents an ideal platform for this exchange of ideas to happen.”One Young World was founded in 2009 by David Jones and Kate Robertson. This London-based charity gathers together youth from across the globe in an attempt to establish lasting relationships to drive positive change.The charity stages annual summits where young delegates, backed by One Young World counsellors, debate and formulate solutions for international issues. After the summit, the One Young World ambassadors work on their own initiatives, or lend the power of the summit’s network to those already in place.
GEM volunteers not only help uplift the communities for which they work but also earn Gems that can be redeemed for airtime, data, pre-paid electricity and movie tickets. (Image: GEM Project)GEM Project, an app that links volunteers to good causes, has partnered with Play Your Part in charitable events that aim to uplift disadvantaged communities.GEM – which stands for Go the Extra Mile – has the potential to curb unemployment. In many cases, volunteers are unemployed people who spend their time contributing to their communities. And with GEM’s reward system, the volunteers are guaranteed to earn something for their good deeds.When volunteers complete a good deed, they are eligible to receive a reward via the app, which is called a Gem. These Gems can be redeemed for products such as airtime, data, pre-paid electricity and even movie tickets. But co-founder David Shields makes it clear that Gems are not a means of financial support. “Rewards are to be seen as a gesture of goodwill, not payment.”The GEM app is a call for all South Africans to become active citizens and play their part in improving the lives of fellow South Africans, says Brand South Africa’s general manager of marketing, Sithembile Ntombela. “We hope that the nation will continue to contribute to positive change because a nation of people who care deeply for one another, and the environment in which they live, is beneficial for everyone.”GEM has partnered with Play Your Part on many occasions since the two began working together in July 2015. Most notable were the events for Nelson Mandela Day, visits to Ethembeni Children’s Home and cleanups at Akani Primary School in Diepsloot and Ark Animal Centre in northern Johannesburg.To find out how you can volunteer for one of GEM’s projects, check out the GEM website.
