SHERIFF’S AGENTS ARREST SUSPECTS IN SUNDAY's INDIALANTIC HOMICIDE

Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Agents have arrested an adult and juvenile for their involvement in the murder and attempted murder that occurred in Indialantic on Sunday afternoon.

The investigation determined that 25-year-old Joseph Howard Milman of Indialantic was the shooter in the incident. Milman has been charged with First Degree Murder, Attempted First Degree Murder, and Robbery with a Firearm.

Also charged in connection with the incident is 17-year-old Justin Dee Howard of Indialantic. The investigation determined that Howard supplied the firearm that was used and received proceeds from the robbery.

Milman was transported to the Brevard County Jail, while Howard was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center. Both suspects are being held without bond.

The investigation was initiated on Sunday, October 19, 2014, when Deputies responded to a 911 call advising that two men had been shot at the residence located at 370 Riviera Blvd, Indialantic. When the Deputies arrived they found 48-year-old Robert Mell outside the residence, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Mell was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center where he remains in critical condition. Upon entering the residence, Deputies located the body of 51-year-old Scott “Skippy” Hyatt, who was also the victim of a gunshot wound.

The investigation to date has revealed that Milman had previously talked about committing a robbery for prescription medication that Hyatt possessed. On Sunday, Milman met with Howard at a residence on Oxford Court and obtained a firearm from Howard. Milman walked to the residence on Riviera where he shot the victims and then removed the pills from Hyatt’s pocket. After the robbery, Milman returned to the residence on Oxford Court, returning the firearm to Howard along with a portion of the stolen drugs before changing clothes and leaving the area.

I would like to personally commend the actions of our Patrol Deputies, Homicide Unit, Crime Scene Unit, and GAME OVER Task Force for their incredible and quick work to resolve this case and get the suspects off our streets before they could harm someone else.

SHARE if you agree. One Veteran waking up homeless is tragic, thousands waking up homeless is a disgrace to our country.

The number of homeless veterans in Canada "could be thousands"
>http://bit.ly/1pyO6b4

"The number of homeless veterans in Canada identified by Veterans Affairs has skyrocketed over the last five years, jumping from just 35 in 2009-2010 to 236 last year. But the true figure could be much higher.

Experts suggest there could be thousands of veterans living on the streets yet to be located by government and volunteer organizations. A City of Toronto report released last year revealed that 16 per cent of the 447 people sleeping on Toronto’s streets identified themselves as Canadian veterans." Ipolitics

"Ottawa is abandoning its former soldiers, leaving them to languish on the streets, despite repeated warnings that many desperately need help, says the country's veterans ombudsman." http://bit.ly/1w697RE

"Col. Stogran predicts a surge in the number of homeless veterans. "They're coming out of the woodwork now. But that's just the tip of the iceberg," said the colonel, who in June of 2008 started the Leave Nobody Behind campaign to raise awareness of homeless vets. "Every single person we send overseas, whether it's to someone else's war or to pick up body parts in Haiti, they all come back changed people." http://bit.ly/1Dyw3de

Do you know a homeless vet who needs help? Help them, feed them, cloth them, talk to them, you can Contact 1-866-522-2122 (English) or 1-866-522-2022 (French) so that emergency funding and a certified case manager can be assigned. http://bit.ly/127RJ2u

New smartphone app aims to get Canada's homeless veterans off the streets >http://bit.ly/1orZmel

"VETS Canada, a not-for-profit group that provides emergency services to transient and homeless veterans, released an app that allows people to report at-risk or homeless veterans. The app, called VETS Canada, is available for both iPhone and Android devices. It allows users to complete a form with the veteran’s name, service number and, with permission, to take a photo of the person. There is also a menu to select whether the individual is at risk of being homeless, homeless or living in a shelter." -D

فى سنة 1995، مواطن أمريكى عنده 44 سنه اسمه "McArthur Wheeler" قرر يسرق بنك. ماك آرثر كان شايف نفسه خبير فى مجال التفاعلات الكيميائيه التى يُمكن إجراءها باستخدام الليمون. و لذلك أبدع فكره عبقريه جداً و هى؛ بما إن الليمون يُستخدم فى صناعة الحبر السرى الذى لا يظهر إلا بعد التسخين، إذن لو عصر ليمون على وشه فمن المستحيل أن تتمكن كاميرات المراقبه فى البنك من رصده.

كان واثق جداً من نفسه لدرجه إنه أخد سيلفى بالكاميرا بتاعته عشان يختبر صحة نظريته، و بالفعل لم يظهر فى تلك الصوره. و بالتالى اكتسب مزيد من الثقه فى النفس و عصر على وشه ليمون و سرق مش بس بنك واحد، بل اتنين فى مدينة بيتسبيرج صباح ذلك اليوم.

الشرطه بعد ذلك اطلعت على شريط المُراقبه، و جابوا صورة ماك آرثر و نشروها فى التليفزيون الساعه 11 صباحاً و تم القاء القبض عليه بعدها. و الشىء الغريب هو إن السيد ويلر كان واثق جداً من نفسه أثناء التحقيق معاه. مسكين فعلاً، وقع ضحية حاجتين؛ الأولى هى الكاميرا المُعطله بتاعته، الثانيه هى Dunning-Kruger Effect..

قصة ماك آرثر ويلر شجعت اتنين من عُلماء النفس الاجتماعى فى جامعة كورنيل اسمهم ديفيد دننج (David Dunning) و جستن كروجر (Justin Kruger) إنهم يبحثوا أكتر عن سبب ثقة ويلر الفظيعه فى نفسه. و بعد مجموعه من التجارب، نشروا ورقة بحثيه بعنوان "Unskilled and unaware of it" شرحوا فيها استناداً على تجاربهم المبدأ المشهور باسمهم حالياً فى علم النفس الاجتماعى.

باختصار، قالوا إن الإنسان الضعيف جداً فى Skill ما بيميل إلى تقييم نفسه بما يفوق مستواه الحقيقى (Overestimating). فى حين إن الإنسان المتمكن فعلاً من تلك الـ Skill بيميل إلى التقليل من نفسه و الاعتقاد بإن تلك المهاره التى يتحلى بها هى شىء يتصف به الجميع. من ضمن الـ Quotes اللى ذكروها فى ذلك البحث، مقولة تشارلز دارون:" ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge"..

و بالتالى لو انت مُتشكك فى نفسك و شايف إنك " لا شىء"، ده معناه إنك فى الغالب على الطريق الصحيح سواء كنت بتشتغل و تطور من معرفتك أم لا. أما لو شايف نفسك جهبز و علامه زمانك و مفيش منك اتنين، فأنا آسف إنى أقولك إنك " ولا حاجه"، مُجرد نكره بيـ Overestimate نفسه..

الشىء الأكيد هو: إنك كل ما بتتعلم ازاى تفكر و كل ما بتعرف أكتر و كل ما بتركز أكتر فى اللى بيحصل حواليك، بتتيقن من شىء واحد فقط و هو إن: لا يوجد فى الكون حقائق أياً كان موضوعها تدعو إلى الثقه أو الراحه أو الاطمئنان أو الإحساس بالذكاء. نوعية المعرفه المُتاحه لنا تُجبر العقل على التساؤل المُستمر؛ و التساؤل المُستمر يعنى غياب الأجوبه و الذى بدوره يعنى عدم الثقه و الإحساس بالنقص و تلك هى تحديداً السمه الأصيله فى نفس كُل إنسان ذكى حقاً. يقول برتراند راسل:

"One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision."

10-year-old Jetta Fosberg of Dayton, Ohio wanted to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, so the generous-spirited Mighty Girl cut off 14 inches of her hair to donate to Wigs For Kids. While her family was proud of Jetta for her kind-hearted act, some of her classmates had a different reaction to her new hairstyle. Jetta's mother, Heidi Fosberg, reports that a "group of students harassed her on a daily basis saying ‘you want to be a boy’ or calling her nasty names and the male students especially would not let it go.” In response to the bullying -- and a weak response to it by the school administration -- her mother created a Facebook page to show support for Jetta that has now attracted more than 25,000 supporters from around the world!

Jetta came up with the idea of donating her hair after seeing the impact of chemotherapy on her paternal grandmother, who died several years ago from lung cancer, and her maternal grandfather, who is currently undergoing treatment for colon cancer. After waiting for several months to make sure that Jetta was serious, her mom took her to get her hair cut. Jetta was thrilled to make the donation but was shocked by the response of her peers. She told Yahoo News that "usually my friends are really supportive, but they were saying I was ugly, that no one likes me anymore, and calling me names like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.”

Jetta's mother went to the school administration to complain but received little help. After becoming frustrated with their inaction, she decided to create the Stand With Jetta page to show her daughter that many people appreciated what she had done. “The bullying and teasing is so negative we wanted to put a positive spin on it and show her that even though this group has not been nice there are so many who respect what you did,” Fosberg explained.

The response to Jetta's story has been tremendously positive on social media and Fosberg has also seen a positive response from some fellow parents at the school: she and thirty others held a silent rally at the school’s drop-off “with positive posters like ‘good morning,’ ‘smile,’ ‘you are special.’” Mother and daughter both hope that their efforts will help students and administration alike recognize the power of words: “Some kids go through this, far more severe, far longer than Jetta has endured, but it shouldn't matter," Fosberg said. "We just want them to realize that this isn't just kids being kids and kids shouldn't get to say things like this.”

10-year-old Jetta Fosberg of Dayton, Ohio wanted to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, so the generous-spirited Mighty Girl cut off 14 inches of her hair to donate to Wigs For Kids. While her family was proud of Jetta for her kind-hearted act, some of her classmates had a different reaction to her new hairstyle. Jetta's mother, Heidi Fosberg, reports that a "group of students harassed her on a daily basis saying ‘you want to be a boy’ or calling her nasty names and the male students especially would not let it go.” In response to the bullying -- and a weak response to it by the school administration -- her mother created a Facebook page to show support for Jetta that has now attracted more than 25,000 supporters from around the world!

Jetta came up with the idea of donating her hair after seeing the impact of chemotherapy on her paternal grandmother, who died several years ago from lung cancer, and her maternal grandfather, who is currently undergoing treatment for colon cancer. After waiting for several months to make sure that Jetta was serious, her mom took her to get her hair cut. Jetta was thrilled to make the donation but was shocked by the response of her peers. She told Yahoo News that "usually my friends are really supportive, but they were saying I was ugly, that no one likes me anymore, and calling me names like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.”

Jetta's mother went to the school administration to complain but received little help. After becoming frustrated with their inaction, she decided to create the Stand With Jetta page to show her daughter that many people appreciated what she had done. “The bullying and teasing is so negative we wanted to put a positive spin on it and show her that even though this group has not been nice there are so many who respect what you did,” Fosberg explained.

The response to Jetta's story has been tremendously positive on social media and Fosberg has also seen a positive response from some fellow parents at the school: she and thirty others held a silent rally at the school’s drop-off “with positive posters like ‘good morning,’ ‘smile,’ ‘you are special.’” Mother and daughter both hope that their efforts will help students and administration alike recognize the power of words: “Some kids go through this, far more severe, far longer than Jetta has endured, but it shouldn't matter," Fosberg said. "We just want them to realize that this isn't just kids being kids and kids shouldn't get to say things like this.”

MARRIED OR NOT, YOU SHOULD READ THIS ...

“When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her!

❝ For more Inspirational Quotes/Story Please visit
www.socialmeems.com ❞

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn’t have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife’s divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn’t had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don’t tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn’t tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office…. jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I’ll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed -dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push through with the divorce.— At least, in the eyes of our son—- I’m a loving husband….

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves.

So find time to be your spouse’s friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. If you are not in a relationship now, remember this for the second (or third) time around. It's never too late.

If you don’t share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up

10-year-old Jetta Fosberg of Dayton, Ohio wanted to help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, so the generous-spirited Mighty Girl cut off 14 inches of her hair to donate to Wigs For Kids. While her family was proud of Jetta for her kind-hearted act, some of her classmates had a different reaction to her new hairstyle. Jetta's mother, Heidi Fosberg, reports that a "group of students harassed her on a daily basis saying ‘you want to be a boy’ or calling her nasty names and the male students especially would not let it go.” In response to the bullying -- and a weak response to it by the school administration -- her mother created a Facebook page to show support for Jetta that has now attracted more than 25,000 supporters from around the world!

Jetta came up with the idea of donating her hair after seeing the impact of chemotherapy on her paternal grandmother, who died several years ago from lung cancer, and her maternal grandfather, who is currently undergoing treatment for colon cancer. After waiting for several months to make sure that Jetta was serious, her mom took her to get her hair cut. Jetta was thrilled to make the donation but was shocked by the response of her peers. She told Yahoo News that "usually my friends are really supportive, but they were saying I was ugly, that no one likes me anymore, and calling me names like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.”

Jetta's mother went to the school administration to complain but received little help. After becoming frustrated with their inaction, she decided to create the Stand With Jetta page to show her daughter that many people appreciated what she had done. “The bullying and teasing is so negative we wanted to put a positive spin on it and show her that even though this group has not been nice there are so many who respect what you did,” Fosberg explained.

The response to Jetta's story has been tremendously positive on social media and Fosberg has also seen a positive response from some fellow parents at the school: she and thirty others held a silent rally at the school’s drop-off “with positive posters like ‘good morning,’ ‘smile,’ ‘you are special.’” Mother and daughter both hope that their efforts will help students and administration alike recognize the power of words: “Some kids go through this, far more severe, far longer than Jetta has endured, but it shouldn't matter," Fosberg said. "We just want them to realize that this isn't just kids being kids and kids shouldn't get to say things like this.”

Purefoods STAR Hotshots
at Oct 22, 2014 5:17:52 AM
TIM CONE ON GRAND SLAMS, GROWTH
AND DEFENDING THE CROWNS
We caught up with Tim Cone just as the
re-branded Purefoods Star Hotshots were
preparing for their defense of the Grand
Slam. The eloquent and loquacious coach
had much to say about the past season
and the one to come.
After spending more than two decades
with Alaska where he won 13
championships, Cone departed for B-
Meg/San Mig Coffee where he has once
more brought his winning ways to
arguably what is the country’s most
popular pro ball club today. Five titles
and a Grand Slam (his second) with his
new team later, he is aiming to keep this
streak, this title run going for as long as it
can.
If you talk to Cone, you will constantly
hear the word “growth.”
At first he was goal-oriented but that
subsequently morphed into being
“growth-oriented.” The coach explained,
“When you try to achieve a goal, if you
accomplish that then you have a
tendency to sit back and relax and say,
‘Well, it’s done.’ So you take it easy and
the hunger isn’t there anymore. Growth? I
can honestly say that I think I am a better
coach than I was three years ago.”
With not much left to conquer with
Alaska, Cone chose to leave and try his
luck with a new club. “Maybe that is why
it is considered shocking because there
was no reason for me to leave.”
The path is just a tad similar to Phil
Jackson’s, one of Cone’s coaching idols.
“With Phil and the Chicago Bulls, there
was a lot of acrimony headed into that
1998 season. There were major
disagreements with Jerry Reinsdorf and
Jerry Krause (the owner and general
manager respectively). As for my case,
there was none. I wanted to see if I could
bring the culture that I developed to
another team and be just as successful,”
explained Cone.
However, like Jackson who was just as
successful in Los Angeles, Cone found out
that he could replicate that winning
culture with another club.
“Did I think we’d win all this? No. To win
one championship can sometimes be
accidental. But multiple titles? That’s like a
quest; it is very difficult. It’s special. The
key word here is ‘culture.’ And that
includes attitudes, ethics, the way we
dress and the way we think.”
“The Grand Slam achieved with Alaska in
1996 was very different from the one
won with San Mig Super Coffee,” said
Cone. “The mechanics of the first grand
slam were very different. Primarily
because the scheduling was very
different. Remember, it was a very
conventional time. We had a conference
then a first break. The second conference
and then a break and so on. We were
coming off a championship and some
very successful years that were leading to
1996. We had normal rest. We beat
Purefoods then Shell in a very tough
series for the second title. In the third we
won 13 games in a row and went on to
win 4-1 over Ginebra. There was a sense
of inevitability. We were so dominant. The
only thing we had to overcome was the
specter of expectations. The previous
season before that we lost the third
conference so when we had the
opportunity to do it again we knew that
we weren’t going to step off that gas
pedal.”
“Eighteen years later, the difference is we
were preparing for the Gilas tournament.
We had the draft, the practice and then
we were already playing. There was no
chance to sit down and immerse everyone
in the system and the culture. We were
the underdogs in every conference. In the
first conference, Rain or Shine has won
13 games going into the finals and we
were struggling and barely got through.
But we beat them in six games. Then we
played TNT that swept the eliminations. In
the last conference, we ended up being
the sixth seed even if RoS was the second
seed. By that time, people were thinking
we could do it again. My thinking was
that throughout the whole year we were
not the dominant team. We just happened
to win what we had at the right time. The
only similarity perhaps is that once we
got in the Finals of that third conference,
there was that feeling that we could do
it.”
However, the “GS” word was taboo in
Cone’s camp.
“No one was ever allowed to talk or
mention the term “Grand Slam in all our
meetings, practices, film sessions etc. I
said, ‘Don’t talk about it. Let others do it
for us but let us not encourage it because
it adds to the pressure. We don’t even
want to think about it so we can
concentrate on the here and now.’ The
one time we began to talk about it was
after it was all done.”
With the 40th Season of the PBA a day
away from tip off, Cone is pretty much
done talking about the year before. “Can’t
rest on our laurels,” he reasoned.
“Whether the club wins or loses, we have
this saying, ‘Yesterday ended last night.’”
“I used to say that my two goals were
send all my kids to college in the US, and
number two, to beat Baby Dalupan’s
record. Two of my three children are in
the US (Nikki is in law school in
Washington while Kevin is at Santa Clara).
I have my youngest son, Trevor, who is
only nine years old and is still at home.
So I’m not yet done with that. Regarding
the second goal, Baby Dalupan was always
my idol. I have much respect for what he
achieved. And even after breaking the
record, that level of respect has not
dissipated one iota. Ultimately you want
to be growth oriented. Yesterday ended
last night. You want to keep going.
Winning is not finite. You never want to
say, ‘I never want to win again.’ Now the
losing — that gets tiring in a hurry.”
“Right now we’re in a good place. Every
conference last year was a struggle but
we ended up winning. We want to see
how long we can keep this going. My idea
right now is to get Justin (Melton), Ian
(Sangalang) and Alex (Mallari) to be better
because when that happens, what more
can they bring to the table and the
system?”
Growth.
“Yeah, that’s the idea,” laughed Cone.
