Video: ‘Super dad’ saves baby from falling off the bridge

December 1st, 2017

Have you heard of the term ‘Dad Reflex’? It is a natural parental reaction that’s encoded into a father the moment his child is born.

Move on from the explanation and watch the video to understand better. A video of a father saving his baby in an impressive reflex is going viral on the internet.

In the video, we can see the father posing with his baby daughter, who suddenly trips on the edge of Yosemite National Park, California, USA. Clearly, the fall could have proved fatal for the baby but the dad in a swift moment just holds her. 

The YouTube channel which uploaded the video quoted the father as saying, “We went on vacation to Yosemite in the summer of 2016. We thought we were going to pose for a daddy/daughter photo but turned into a memorable video. Wife accidentally had it on video mode. It was a scary moment, but as you can see we were able to laugh afterwards. We are thankful for each other and our lack of injuries.”

That’s one clean sweep, Super Dad!

Greenfield woman faces drug charges after traffic stop

December 1st, 2017

GREENFIELD — A Greenfield woman faces felony drug charges after admitting she deals methamphetamine to help pay her bills, court records state.

Hilaire J. Chittum, 42, 1914 Founders Drive, was arrested Monday following a traffic stop in the 1300 block of West Main Street. City police had received two tips from area residents in recent weeks that Chittum was using drugs. Leaders at the department passed that information on to officers, likely leading the Greenfield Police Department officer who stopped her to ask to search her car, Chief Jeff Rasche said.

Officers found methamphetamine and other drugs inside, court documents state.

She now faces a Level 4 felony count of dealing methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony count of possession of methamphetamine and two Class A misdemeanors counts of possession of a controlled substance.

She’s since pleaded not guilty to the charges she faces and has been released from the Hancock County Jail on a $2,500 bond. She’s slated to appear in court again Jan. 11.

Police stopped Chittum Monday for driving 12 mph over the posted speed limit of 30 mph, court documents state.

A K-9 officer from the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department that on duty overnight was called to the scene to help officers search the car and signaled drugs were inside, charging documents state.

Before searching the vehicle, officers asked Chittum if there was anything in the car she wanted to tell them about. She told them the drugs were in her wallet in the passenger seat, according to court documents.

Inside the car, officers found two small baggies containing what appeared to be methamphetamine, court records state. They also found a pill bottle for the weight loss supplement Garcinia Cambogia and about 15 Suboxone strips, a narcotic that can relieve withdraw symptoms from more powerful drugs, charging documents state.

Inside the pill bottle, they found two dextroamphetamine pills, which is used to treat ADHD, according to court records.

When police arrested Chittum and searched her, she told them she had methamphetamine in her boot, as well, court documents state.

After arresting her, police pressed her about the drugs, and she told them she deals methamphetamine to make extra money to help pay her bills, according to court documents.

She told them she only deals to about five people and gets the meth from a man in Indianapolis, charging documents state.

The night before her arrest, she purchased about $120 of meth, she told police. She breaks the crystal-like substance up and distributes it, according to charging documents.

She also uses the drug every other day or so, she said, court documents state.

When asked whether she deals the drug from her home, she told police she has, but she tries to make the sales elsewhere, charging documents state.

When asked about the Suboxone strips, Chittum told police she was holding them from a friend, but she has been prescribed them in the past, according to court documents.

She also uses the pills police found in her car, she said. She got them from  a friend, she told officers, charging documents state.

The Level 4 felony Chittum faces carries a penalty of two 12 years and up to $10,000 in fines, the Level 6 felony carries a penalty of six months to two and a half years.

The Class A misdemeanors she faces carry a penalty of up to one year and up to $5,000 in fines.

WordPress 4.9.1 Security and Maintenance Release

November 29th, 2017

WordPress 4.9.1 is now available. This is a security and maintenance release for all versions since WordPress 3.7. We strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

WordPress versions 4.9 and earlier are affected by four security issues which could potentially be exploited as part of a multi-vector attack. As part of the core team's ongoing commitment to security hardening, the following fixes have been implemented in 4.9.1:

  1. Use a properly generated hash for the newbloguser key instead of a determinate substring.
  2. Add escaping to the language attributes used on html elements.
  3. Ensure the attributes of enclosures are correctly escaped in RSS and Atom feeds.
  4. Remove the ability to upload JavaScript files for users who do not have the unfiltered_html capability.

Thank you to the reporters of these issues for practicing responsible security disclosure: Rahul Pratap Singh and John Blackbourn.

Eleven other bugs were fixed in WordPress 4.9.1. Particularly of note were:

  • Issues relating to the caching of theme template files.
  • A MediaElement JavaScript error preventing users of certain languages from being able to upload media files.
  • The inability to edit theme and plugin files on Windows based servers.

This post has more information about all of the issues fixed in 4.9.1 if you'd like to learn more.

Download WordPress 4.9.1 or venture over to Dashboard → Updates and click "Update Now." Sites that support automatic background updates are already beginning to update automatically.
