Audio of the moments leading up to Matthew McKinnon’s death played Wednesday in a Brockville courtroom as the case against his accused killer continued.

Content of the article

Video surveillance from a nearby residential security camera captured audio of the alleged altercation between McKinnon and Ryan Ballantyne, the man charged with second-degree murder in his death.

Brockville Police Detective Graham Coe, lead investigator and forensic analyst in the case, said McKinnon’s death was not caught on camera, but the audio played for court was from of the incident that resulted in McKinnon’s death.

Within minutes, a taxi carrying McKinnon can be seen circling Ballantyne’s family home on Cedar Street near the Church Street intersection at approximately 9:45 p.m. on November 17, 2019.

After a few laps around the block, the taxi stopped and partial video showed what Coe described as McKinnon exiting the vehicle and walking towards the Cedar Street home. A loud altercation was captured on audio, but the rest of the incident was not captured on video as it took place out of camera range.

Much of what was said during the dispute was unintelligible, but the name “Ryan” was clearly shouted by several people, the courtroom heard.

The 911 call was also broadcast. The caller said there was “blood everywhere” and McKinnon was not moving or breathing. Police and paramedics arrived minutes after the call but were unable to save McKinnon, who suffered significant blood loss and died minutes after being stabbed.

Ballantyne pleaded not guilty to the charge. He was 34 when he was arrested by city police in the early morning hours of November 18, 2019.

Content of the article

In his opening remarks on Monday, Crown Attorney Alan Findlay claimed that McKinnon had taken a taxi from his home in Prescott with the intention of fighting Ballantyne.

Text messages between the pair leading up to the altercation on Wednesday showed there were several attempts by McKinnon to call his ex-wife on the night of November 17, as well as a brief text message argument. between the two.

A heated exchange of text messages between the victim and the accused also suggested a tumultuous past history between them.

The court saw a lengthy, often one-sided conversation between McKinnon and Ballantyne, during which the victim repeatedly texted and attempted to call Ballantyne via Facebook Messenger. Ballantyne responded sporadically and infrequently.

During their exchange, McKinnon texted Ballantyne daring him to fight, the court heard, after which McKinnon took a taxi to Brockville and arrived on Cedar Street.

Investigators found a gun under the front passenger seat of the taxi McKinnon took from Prescott to Brockville, along with pepper spray, McKinnon’s cell phone, a golf pencil and a piece of crumpled aluminum foil , the court heard.

The defendant had what Findlay had previously described as “a back-and-forth relationship” with McKinnon’s wife. She and McKinnon had separated in May of that year and they have a son together.

Ballantyne’s head was low for much of the proceedings, his long beard partially covered by a mask.

Superior Court Justice John M. Johnston hears the case.

The trial resumes Thursday.

Study examines effect of mothers’ voices on NICU babies https://replicarec.com/study-examines-effect-of-mothers-voices-on-nicu-babies/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 22:06:00 +0000 https://replicarec.com/study-examines-effect-of-mothers-voices-on-nicu-babies/ A research study at AdventHealth for Children in Orlando hopes to help mothers forge a closer bond with their babies in the NICU, when the baby is forced to stay in the hospital while the mother is sent home. Raena Baptiste-Boles, an Orlando psychologist, says her daughter Riley spent the first three months of her life in AdventHealth’s NICU. She volunteered for the study which examines the effect of mother-child vocal connections in the early stages of a child’s life. . Baptiste-Boles had to record himself singing, as well as reading books. This recording was later played in Riley’s incubator at NICU. “I was hoping she’d recognize it once she got out, and she did.

A research study at AdventHealth for Children in Orlando hopes to help mothers forge a closer bond with their babies in the NICU, when the baby is forced to stay in the hospital while the mother is sent home.

Orlando psychologist Dr. Raena Baptiste-Boles says her daughter Riley spent the first three months of her life in AdventHealth’s NICU.

She volunteered for the study which examines the effect of mother-child vocal connections in the early stages of a child’s life.

Baptiste-Boles had to record himself singing, as well as reading books. This recording was later played in Riley’s incubator at NICU.

“I was hoping she’d recognize it once she got out, and she did. I’ve noticed that as I get older, when I sing to her, she calms down and I think that has a lot to do with the fact that she recognizes my voice when singing the isolette,” said Baptiste-Boles.

The researchers say there is already a lot of data that supports the role of a mother’s voice not only in calming an infant, but also in stimulating brain development.

Dr. Narendra Dereddy is medical director of neonatology at AdventHealth for Children.

He says what’s unique about this study is that it focuses more on what playing the tapes does for NICU mothers than for babies.

“It’s a well-known fact that mothers who have NICU babies are at a higher risk of postpartum depression and anxiety than having a healthy baby,” Dereddy said.

Dereddy said he was looking to see if levels of anxiety and postpartum depression in NICU mothers could be decreased through the practice of taping.

Baptiste-Boles said it made a big difference for her.

“It helps to feel like a mom, to feel like you haven’t done anything wrong, like you’re doing your best,” Baptiste-Boles said.

Dereddy says if the study finds voice recordings help NICU moms, it will likely become a regular offering.

Researchers say the mother’s voice is played in the incubator at a very low intensity, just 40 to 50 decibels.

The average adult can barely hear it, but doctors say it’s safe for babies and similar to what they hear in their mother’s womb.

Craig Levein pulls back Celtic and Rangers VAR warning and insists ‘noise and bullying’ will no longer put pressure on referees https://replicarec.com/craig-levein-pulls-back-celtic-and-rangers-var-warning-and-insists-noise-and-bullying-will-no-longer-put-pressure-on-referees/ Sat, 18 Jun 2022 13:36:40 +0000 https://replicarec.com/craig-levein-pulls-back-celtic-and-rangers-var-warning-and-insists-noise-and-bullying-will-no-longer-put-pressure-on-referees/

Craig Levein thinks VAR WILL NOT be good for Celtic and Rangers.

The new technology will be rolled out to the Scottish Premiership next season, but the decision to do so throughout the campaign after the World Cup final in December has sparked some controversy.

The system should help officials answer important calls more often.

Rangers benefited from VAR corrections of officials’ errors on their way to the Europa League final.

And while former Hearts and Scotland boss Levein welcomes his introduction, he has warned the Glasgow big two he could see them getting fewer decisions in their favour.

Levein claimed that, from experience, he has seen many boundary calls go the way of the old company due to the pressure put on the umpire by their large crowds.

And he thinks VAR could remove that perceived advantage and restore balance.

“It’s probably controversial,” he told BBC Sportsound. “I think it’s good for Scottish football, but maybe not so good for the Old Firm.”

When asked why he thought that, Levein replied, “Hmm, well, why do you think?

“In my time in Scottish football I have been involved in games where I feel the Old Firm have been given more than their fair share of decisions, based on crowd noise and the intimidation.



Referee Serdar Gözübüyük examines VAR monitor for potential penalty for foul on Rangers’ Ryan Kent

“Referees are human beings, and if you’re under pressure like you do on those two courts, then it’s human nature that you’re more likely to do whatever calms everything down.

“And that gives a 50/50 decision to one of those teams.”

Levein would like to see more clarity regarding the rules of handball and when those decisions are referred to VAR.

He added: “Handball is the one to go for because they have completely messed that up.

“Even offside, for a while, it was controversial but I think they’re getting there now.

“They were drawing all these lines and there were microscopic differences.”

On June 15, written by Itoro Umontuen, The Voice of Atlanta published a misleading, false and biased report titled, DeKalb County commissioners’ race possibly marred by alleged ethics violations.” The intent of this false and slanderous story published by Umontuen was to smear my campaign, spread a lie and “rock the bottom line of the race (DeKalb County Commission District 2)”.

Fortunately, Umontuen said it correctly – I, Michelle Long Spears, candidate for DeKalb County Commission’s District 2, “participated in the second round after winning 43% of the vote in the May 24 primary election. “. I was the candidate who seemed to get almost no votes on Election Day, but was actually in first place. I fought for my name on the ballot, as the current leader of this race and a strong advocate for the integrity of the vote, after my campaign discovered technical programming errors with the voting machines in the majority electoral districts of district 2.

Today I spoke with the editor and publisher, Janis L. Ware, who said she had no prior knowledge of the published story. I asked the Voice of Atlanta to recant and delete the story immediately. Ms. Ware honored that request and the story is no longer on their website. Thanks for The Voice of Atlanta for honoring your commitment. But the damage was still done – and news aggregators spread the false story.

Among the lies:

Mr Umontuen said on our call today (with Ms Ware) that he had not contacted Commissioner Lorraine Cochran-Johnson. Cochran-Johnson officially supported me through Primary, giving my campaign permission to include it in our campaign materials. She then chose not to endorse anyone in the second round, saying via text message Friday, June 10 that “she did not wish to make any official statement or endorsement in the second round.” I quickly responded to her change of position by removing her from our website and from the trickle mail that was due to be printed that day. Unfortunately, however, a previously scheduled robocall, which was recorded on June 6, accidentally withheld his approval after his job change. Our campaign team made a mistake and I was misinformed that we didn’t understand him, which led me to give him an erroneous statement.

Commissioner Ted Terry does not run my campaign, but he is a strong supporter. I run my campaign, with the help of paid campaign professionals who do not include Commissioner Terry.

Mr. Umontuen said on our call today that he made no attempt to contact me, despite his story clearly stating that “Spears did not respond to requests for comment” – which was untrue. I haven’t spoken to anyone from Atlanta Voice. I haven’t received an email or voicemail from him or anyone else from The Voice of Atlanta. He falsely claimed that he made several attempts to reach me before publishing the story.

There is no part of Chamblee or Tucker or East Atlanta in District 2.

My social impact consultancy, NP Voice, is an LLC – not a nonprofit.

The article did not meet basic journalistic standards and lacked integrity. His allegations were second and/or third hand from biased sources affiliated with opposing campaigns. During our call today, I asked him to identify his sources, but he did not answer and did not identify these sources without any justification – and then treated these allegations as facts without any verification of the facts.

The story also failed to mention that it was actually Marshall Orson, a current member of the DeKalb County School Board, who falsely claimed Commissioner Cochran-Johnson’s endorsement. Cochran-Johnson said “Marshall never asked for my approval.”

Thank you for publishing this account of events and setting the record straight. I look forward to cultivating a long term relationship with The Voice of Atlantaa respected media institution in the Atlanta metro area.

Dianne Ballon’s online lecture ‘The Art of Sound: Recordings on the Coast of Maine’ https://replicarec.com/dianne-ballons-online-lecture-the-art-of-sound-recordings-on-the-coast-of-maine/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 12:01:57 +0000 https://replicarec.com/dianne-ballons-online-lecture-the-art-of-sound-recordings-on-the-coast-of-maine/

The Rockland Public Library presents Dianne Ballon, Thursday, June 23, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. This event is free and open to everyone.

Sound artist Dianne Ballon has been working in sound for over 35 years. She received a Maine Artist Fellowship from the Maine Arts Commission. Instead of returning to the Arctic where she recorded sound, the price and the limitations of the pandemic gave her the opportunity to focus on her coastal sound series at her home on the coast of Maine. Through the sound work she has recorded and mixed over the past fellowship year, Dianne will introduce listeners to the beauty and richness of sound. She will share the stories behind the sounds, including the difficulties of field recording and the discovery of a ‘lost’ sound.

About her series of coastal sounds, she writes: “The series includes my Boat creaks on a wharf in Iceland, recorded in a small port in the fjords of northwest Iceland. Each port has its own distinct sound. Rocked by the movement of the water, the pull of the tide and a variable touch of wind, the boats create a series of spellbinding sounds. The sounds are introspective: both crisp and sweet, calm and busy, rhythmic yet random and painfully beautiful.

To experience the high fidelity of the sound that will be presented, high-quality headphones or speakers are highly recommended, according to RPL in a press release.

Dianne Ballon is a sound artist. His sound works have been broadcast on National Public Radio’s All things Considered. She received a Maine Artist Fellowship from the Maine Arts Commission. During her artist residency at Shenandoah National Park, she created a sound portrait for the park. At the Goethe Institut, she presented her sound installation Dreams about musical instruments. At the Newseum, she produced the audio for the national exhibition The Marines and Tet: The Battle That Changed the Vietnam War. She won an award in an international radio art competition for her field recording of creaking boats on a wharf in Iceland. She produces audio for Tactile Images, a company that creates artwork for museums accessible to the blind through touch and sound. For more than ten years, she was a member of the teaching and production team of the National Audio Theater Festivals. At the University of Maine at Augusta, she taught audio production and radio drama. Currently, she teaches audio to podcasters and producers through the Podcast Garage in Boston and the SALT Institute for Documentary Studies at Maine College of Art and Design.

This event will take place via Zoom. Seating will also be available in the Library’s Community Room to watch the Zoom call on screen, with high-quality speakers; the Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union Street. For more information or Zoom links, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov by 4 p.m. June 23 and identify the event you would like to attend in the subject line.

Meet Fred Burke, who provided the Oval Office tapes that helped sink Nixon https://replicarec.com/meet-fred-burke-who-provided-the-oval-office-tapes-that-helped-sink-nixon/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 22:52:00 +0000 https://replicarec.com/meet-fred-burke-who-provided-the-oval-office-tapes-that-helped-sink-nixon/
Placeholder while loading article actions

On the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, it’s time to meet the man who sold all that blank reel tape to the White House, 18½ minutes of which became famous for what’s not there. was not, not what was. His name is Fred Burk. He’s 89 and keeps the subpoena he received from Watergate investigators framed on the wall of his Florida home.

” I began by kennedy“, said Fred. “When Johnson took over, we did a lot for him.

And Nixon? We will join him.

Fred was born in Washington. His father worked in a poultry market on M Street. The family was very poor.

“I never had a bed until I was almost 13,” Fred said over the phone from Palm Beach Gardens, where he lives with his wife, Iris. “I slept on the couch.”

But Fred had a few things going for him.

“The thing my dad said to me when I was little was, ‘We don’t have anything, but there’s one thing you have that no one can ever take away from you.’ It was my word.

Fred was honest and a good salesman. In 1958 he co-founded a consumer stereo store called Audio Center. From his store on Fairmount Avenue in Bethesda, he would eventually count among his customers Jack Kent Cooke, Abe Pollin and various politicians.

Audio Center was half of Fred’s working life. His other half was Professional Products, the company he founded in the late 60s with partners Charles Faulkner and Carter Kaufman focus on government customers. Professional Products became a preferred supplier to the Secret Service technical department, headed by a man named Al Wong.

Fred sold the Secret Service cassette recorders that could fit in briefcases. He sold them penny-sized Sennheiser microphones. He sold the White House three television sets installed side by side in a console so that Lyndon B. Johnson could watch various newscasts simultaneously.

“He wanted to see it all happen at once,” Fred said. “He had a switch to be able to change the audio.”

Fred’s company sold the eight-track cassette player installed on Air Force One to the White House. And when LBJ wanted to listen to some country on a flight to his Texas ranch, it was Fred who the Secret Service woke up with a 2 a.m. phone call asking where they could get the albums. Fred told them to contact the record distributor at 7 a.m., provide the list of albums, then send someone to pick them up.

By the time the eight crawlers were delivered to Andrews Air Force Base, Air Force One had taken off. Fred said they were flown to Texas on Air Force Two.

“For me, it was the biggest waste of money ever,” he said.

At the same time that Fred was selling equipment to the Secret Service, he was selling stereo equipment to clients of the Soviet Embassy. The CIA asked him to report what they had purchased.

As for that reel-to-reel audio tape, what Nixon’s White House wanted was the tape in blank white boxes, with no maker’s name on the outside. And they wanted it in massive quantities, 200 to 300 spools per order. “For the records,” Fred said, he was told.

“I knew they were recording everything, but obviously that’s none of my business,” he said. “Then I get a call: ‘Rose Mary Woods needs a tape recorder. They want a real good one, not a normal tape recorder. They order an Uher tape recorder.

This was so that Woods, Nixon’s secretary, could transcribe all recorded conversations in the Oval Office.

As you will have heard, Republican agents were caught breaking into the Democratic National Committee headquarters. What did Nixon know and when did he know it? Well, one tape had 18 and a half minutes of silence, a gap that Woods described as “accidental”. The Secret Service asked Fred if it was possible.

“My answer to the Secret Service was ‘bull—-. There’s no accident with what happened there. ”

Some 18 and a half minutes may have missed, but what was left was pretty bad: “What I meant was you could win a million dollars,” Nixon had said. “And you could get it in cash. I know where it could be obtained.

When Fred was subpoenaed in 1974, he provided all the business documents he was asked for. Investigators were particularly interested in whether Nixon’s friend Baby Rebozo had bought anything. (He hadn’t.)

“I’ve always felt privileged to be a part of everything I’ve done,” said Fred, who retired to Florida in 2000. “I was just very proud – from my upbringing and so continued – to have had the opportunity to do so.”

And Fred played his small part in America’s history.

“Once he returned the tapes, it was all over.”

One of the reported use cases where the issue can occur is when opening games or apps. When it occurs, it generates a short but intense crackling/clicking sound, even if the phone is muted.

When launching certain apps or games, such as Genshin Impact or AetherSX2, my Pixel 6 Pro sometimes makes a brief and extremely loud crackling/clicking sound even when muted. Unfortunately, I can’t reproduce this consistently, but it seems more likely to happen the longer my phone is available. I also sent comments on this.

Apparently it’s not something that happens every time a game or app is opened. However, something like this happens once in a while can be quite annoying for the users.

When recording voice or video

Another situation where the bug can occur is when recording video or audio. In these cases, in addition to the crackling noise, there is also an annoying “rain-like” background noise.

Pixel 6 – Audible Crackling/Static Noise in Filmed Videos

I recently noticed that whenever I shoot a video, when I watch it, there is a crackle/static noise every time. It almost looks like it’s raining. This is more noticeable when shooting in quiet environments. Noise is noticeably louder in videos shot at 1.0x as opposed to 0.7x.

Unlike the previous case, the problem seems to be very common when recording audio or video. So it can be quite frustrating for the users.

During phone calls

Finally, some users are reporting similar issues while making calls. In these cases, there is a “loud clicking noise”. At least that seems to happen occasionally.

Loud clicking noise from Pixel 6 Pro during phone calls – rare, but has happened several times. Someone else?

Hey guys, I’ve been using my Pixel 6 Pro for a few weeks now and noticed an issue where my phone sometimes clicks loudly during a phone call.

Has anyone else noticed this or has anyone any idea what it could be?

Bill Walker, Nashville Force as bandleader and arranger, dies at 95 https://replicarec.com/bill-walker-nashville-force-as-bandleader-and-arranger-dies-at-95/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 21:14:00 +0000 https://replicarec.com/bill-walker-nashville-force-as-bandleader-and-arranger-dies-at-95/

NASHVILLE — Bill Walker, a bandleader and arranger who became a musical force in Nashville, scoring popular recordings for country stars like Marty Robbins and Connie Smith and serving as musical director for the television variety show at primetime Johnny Cash, died May 26 at a rehabilitation center near here. He was 95 years old.

His death was confirmed by his stepdaughter Terri Walker, who said she developed pneumonia after recent knee replacement surgery.

A classically trained pianist, Mr. Walker orchestrated such hits as Eddy Arnold’s “Make the World Go Away” (1965) and Sammi Smith’s “Help Me Make It Through the Night” (1970). Both records reached No. 1 in the country chart and moved into the Pop Top 10.

He was also arranger and bandleader for, among many other recordings, Donna Fargo’s “The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA”, a chart-topping country single that stalled just outside the Pop Top 10 in 1972. .
