NORWALK – A jury has found a former Montebello man not guilty of murder in a shooting that left two men dead and a third wounded outside a popular Pico Rivera nightclub in 2004. Jurors in the Norwalk Court trial of Daniel Jacob, 28, who now resides in Texas, were unable to reach a verdict on one of the two murder charges and found Jacob not guilty of attempted murder. During the trial, Jacob, who testified on his own behalf, and several of his relatives claimed he was in Texas when the shooting occurred in the parking lot of El Rodeo Nightclub, after a rap concert had ended at about 2 a.m. on Jan. 21, 2004. But during the trial, Gutierrez raised doubts about whether Jacob was even in the state at the time of the shooting. His mother and sister testified he was with them in Texas, celebrating the holidays. Herring, in his closing argument, pointed to eyewitnesses who claimed to have seen Jacob shoot the three victims. The shooting was among a string of violent incidents reported at or near El Rodeo on Washington Boulevard. But Joe Walker, a crime analyst for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which patrols Pico Rivera, said the club has been relatively quiet in recent years. “We just don’t talk about the El Rodeo anymore,” he said. Since January of this year, deputies have responded to one reported burglary, two stolen cars and five fights at the club, but no assaults have occurred there this year, Walker said. On May 1, however, a 22-year-old man who had just left the club was shot to death at a stop light at Washington Boulevard and Crossway Drive, he said. An SUV pulled up to the victim’s car and opened fire, Walker added. Last year, deputies responded to two felony assaults and an assault with a deadly weapon at the club. That year, city officials placed tougher operating rules on the club’s owner, imposing a 1:30 a.m. deadline on alcohol sales and requiring the owner to hire armed security guards. “Even last year \ was down,” said Walker. “In 2003 and 2004, it was really active. I believe they are a lot more careful about who they let in the club now.” email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

They said the re-trial could begin next month. Jurors acquitted Jacob of murder in the shooting of Epimenio Padilla, 31, of Los Angeles, and also found him not guilty of attempting to murder Jose Maciel. Members of Padilla’s family broke into tears when the verdicts were read in court Wednesday, Deputy District Attorney Douglas Herring said. “They began crying,” he said. “The only people who showed emotion in the courtroom were Mr. Padilla’s family.” Defense Attorney Joe Gutierrez could not be reached for comment.

Looking to visualize your Facebook friend graph? You can with a Facebook app called Nexus. This app is a friend grapher that displays a visual analysis of your Facebook connections. But it’s not just a pretty picture: in addition to viewing how your friends are connected, you can use Nexus to discover what interests your friends share and which of your friends are the most similar to you.How To Use NexusTo get started with Nexus, add the app to your Facebook profile. You can choose to generate the graph in either a light theme or a dark theme, as you wish. Once the graph has been generated, you can hover any node to view your friend connections. What’s really interesting, though, is that you can click on any node on the graph and view information about your friends and how they relate to other members of your social graph. A Nexus GraphFor example, clicking on Richard, I discovered he shared commonalities with Jason Calacanis, Michael Arrington, and Robert Scoble. For the most part, these shared interests were in the form of groups that they both belonged to, but they also could be shared activities, music, movies, etc. (For example, both Richard and I are fans of the movie “The Matrix.”)Discovering common interestsYou can then click on any one of those shared commonalities and discover other members in your friend graph who also share this interest. You can even click a link to search all of Facebook to find people outside of your friend graph who are interested in the same thing. Another thing that Nexus can do is help you discover friends who are most similar to you. By clicking a provided link, the application compares your interests with those of your friends to determine who is most like you. Not to worry, though – the information gathered is restricted to the permissions you have on Facebook. If you were to share a friend’s page with someone who was not that person’s friend, all they would be able to see is the graph itself, not the common interests and how they relate to others.The graph generated by Nexus can be created as either a radial graph or a spring graph and can also be downloaded in one of three different sizes. Why It’s UsefulWe can thank Alisa Rowan of the iCrossing blog for this find. She reminds us that Nexus isn’t just fun, it can be helpful too, saying:For those working in a space (social media) – where CPM, click-through rates, and other traditional digital metrics fail to provide a total picture of consumer interaction, involvement, and intimacy – you know that constantly seeking out new data, and new ways of looking at that data, are critical to understanding and quantifying the qualitative.Agreed, but it’s also a great way to waste hours on Facebook in a more productive fashion than ever before. sarah perez Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#Product Reviews#Social Web#web The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit
An international panel of experts released recommendations today for future research on Alzheimer’s disease. The recommendations will help guide the research component of the new national plan for Alzheimer’s disease announced Tuesday by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The plan sets the ambitious goal of developing effective prevention and treatment strategies for Alzheimer’s by 2025.The new research strategy was developed by experts who met during a 2-day summit at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, earlier this week. The panel acknowledges a number of challenges facing the field, including the need to develop better experimental models and to initiate clinical trials at earlier stages of the disease. Their recommendations include conducting more interdisciplinary research on the biological mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease and therapeutic targets, enabling more rapid and extensive sharing of data and biological specimens, and fostering more public-private partnerships (along the lines of the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, a successful biomarker development effort jointly funded by NIH and the pharmaceutical industry). The panel also calls for more research on nondrug interventions, such as lifestyle changes, that might prevent or slow the disease. A financial stimulus for Alzheimer’s research appears to be in the works: President Barack Obama’s proposed 2013 budget includes $80 million in new funding. Congress has yet to weigh in on that plan.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) U.S. National Institute on Aging, Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Referral Center Warning signs.

You just arrived in Austin, TX for famed music, film and interactive conference SXSW. Sure you have tons of bands to see and parties to attend, but Austin is also an wonderful city that needs to be explored for its amazing restaurants, shopping and natural beauty. Ditch the travel guide and listen up: we visited this incredibly cool city more than a few times and asked some locals to give us an insider’s look on where to eat, drink and shop. Check out our recommendations below and get the most out of your SXSW journey this year.ShopSTAG ProvisionsAs the “modern-day general store for every man,” it doesn’t get better than STAG. Stocking everything from clothing, antiques, accessories and grooming essentials from the best and brightest brands, they pair high end with low, mix vintage classics with new collections and meld the unexpected with the nostalgic. And with brands like Billykirk, Burkman Bros and Kika NY, it’s the one-stop-shop for everything cool.Service MenswearIf STAG represents the East Coast, Service Menswear definitely holds down the West. Swimwear from brands like Sundek and Quiksilver Originals will have you ready to dive into Barton Springs, and street wear like RVCA and Vans have your outdoorsy side covered.Room Service VintageIf thrifting is more your thing, stray from the string of vintage haunts on South Congress to find much better deals. There are a ton of great stores, but Room Service Vintage was a personal favorite. With everything from cowboy boots to barware to vintage Playboys, you could spend hours searching every nook and cranny.EatSa-TénLocated in the Canopy creative community, this cool new spot serves up coffee, tea and delicious Japanese toasts and plates. There’s a type for everyone, from the extra savory Pork Sausage or Sriracha Mayo Smoked Salmon toasts to the vegetarian-friendly mushroom and egg varieties. Don’t miss the Chicken Katsu with Curry, best ordered with a side of anchovy toast for the full menu experience.Odd DuckIt’s a tale as old as time in Austin, when a great food trailer turns into a brick-and-mortar restaurant, and Chef Bryce Gilmore did the most with his shiny new outpost of Odd Duck. The menu is focused on seasonal and local ingredients with dishes like goat lasagna with spinach, béchamel and brussels sprouts and a refreshing risotto with cauliflower, goat cheese and grapefruit.Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-QAs pork rib enthusiasts, we did our research before heading down south and conjured a list of BBQ places to try. But our Austin friends suggested we ditch the hyped joints and hit this tried and true spot, and the locals are always right. Order at the counter, cafeteria style, by the rib, slice or pound. Tell the crew you’re a newcomer and they’ll let you try before you buy.Thai-KunNamed one of America’s Best New Restaurants in 2014 by Bon Appétit, this food truck specializes in “O.G. Thai” from chef Thai Changthong. Located at Whisler’s on the East Side, be prepared to eat some of the spiciest food in town with dishes like Beef Panang Curry and Waterfall Pork, grilled and sliced with Tiger Cry sauce. Grilled Bread with Peanut Curry Sauce and Black Noodles will help put out the fire.Related: Best BBQ Spots Across the U.S.DrinkThe Driskill Hotel BarIf you’re looking for a good date spot or just a strong cocktail in a swanky lounge, the Driskill Hotel bar is the epitome of Southern charm. Pony hair upholstery, stained glass ceilings and a haunted grand staircase lend ambiance as a live bluegrass band provides the entertainment.Rio RitaHead to the East Side of Austin for, in our opinion, pretty much the best bar patios in the country. But our favorite has to be Rio Rita for a colorful backyard and killer cocktail menu. You won’t regret ordering the Bloody Mary, or any of their concoctions for that matter. Try the sinus-clearing habanero shot if you dare.BarbarellaIf you’re looking to dance and go a little HAM, Barbarella is the place to drop it like it’s hot. Unpretentious for a club, busy nights feature three DJs – upstairs, downstairs and patio – so you can choose your own musical adventure. The Side BarDrinks here are cheap, and we mean like really cheap. Located right in the middle of downtown, it’s the perfect place to stop in for a drink or shot in-between shows. Like most of the other watering holes in Austin, The Side Bar has a huge backyard full of picnic tables to rest your tired legs.ChillBarton Springs PoolEven though the icy waters of Barton Springs might be too cold to swim in this time of year, grab some friends and relax on the grassy hill while taking in the view.

Previously, it only came in red and blue, which could be an inconvenience if you don’t want to be associated with blue or red.Previously, there was only one Tudor Heritage Black Bay model in black that was made for the Only Watch charity auction. This release marks the first time that the Tudor Heritage Black Bay model timepiece will be available to the general public in all black. So next time you want to go for a dive, look sharp in a suit, or be cool in jeans, a t-shirt and a pair of Converse, go for the Tudor Heritage Black Bay timepiece.
