They do their homework they talk to people" said Vanney of the university’s vetting of potential student athletesThat process includes an application all potential students are required to fill out that asks applicants to list any felony or violent misdemeanor criminal history as well as sex offender status It’s required by the state University System Vanney saidVanney said he did not know whether anyone at VCSU was aware of Chappell’s juvenile criminal history Chappell was charged with felony motor vehicle theft in January 2010 and again with felony motor vehicle theft and receiving stolen property in March of the same yearBoth cases were pleaded down to lesser charges Court records show he pleaded guilty to two gross misdemeanors – motor vehicle theft and receiving stolen property – in March 2010 and was sentenced to a year of supervised probationThe current vetting system relies on self-reporting by a potential student and Vanney said he did not think VCSU would change the approach since it was based on a statewide requirement"But we’re not going to forget this either" he saidVanney said Chappell had been suspended from the school and the team per student

that she had been killed by an alligator while walking her dogsThe woman Shizuka Matsuki was attacked by a 12-foot 6-inch alligator when she was walking in the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park in south Florida The alligator thought to have been involved in the attack has since been captured and killed with a necropsy of the reptile revealing a human arm in its stomach the Sun Sentinel reports Search teams then went into the lake at the nature park to recover the rest of Matsukis body In a statement the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said: "The victim of this tragic incident has been identified as Shizuka Matsuki 47 years of age of Plantation Florida "This tragedy is heartbreaking for everyone involved and our sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim at this time"Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park Credit: PAThe organisation also tweeted to say it would be conducting a thorough investigation into the incident adding: "We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Shizuka Matsuki"Search teams located the body of Ms Matsuki June 8 at the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park lake in Davie" One of the dogs that belonged to Matsuki – a pit bull – also suffered some injuries after it got bit by the gator as Davie Police Major Dale Engle told the Sun Sentinel Local residents also told the newspaper that they had complained about alligators in the park with some even explaining that they had lost pets that wandered too close to the lakeCredit: PAJeff Polhman Davies Assistant Director of Parks said to the newspaper that trappers had been hired within the last 18-24 months in a bid to capture the alligator but they had not had any success One of Matsukis neighbours Peter Limia told the Miami Herald that her husband had warned her not to walk near the nature park "He had warned her not to take the dogs over to that place because they had seen gators before and it isnt safe" Limia 37 said "She was just your ordinary soccer mom Its a tragedy" Jim Borelli a friend of the family also said that Matsuki and her husband have been known to walk their dogs in the park previously and that while the couple didnt actually live in the neighbourhood Matsuki enjoyed finding different places to walk their dogs Featured Image Credit: PA Topics: News Us news AnimalsThe NDDOT has issued a travel aert for

Police Chief Mike Hedlund said he sees some of the violations in his city every year"It’s not common but it does happen on a far too frequent basis" Hedlund said "I think it’s mostly people who are just in a hurry and figure there won’t be an issue All it takes is that one kid to step out in front of that bus to cross the street and wham he never even had a chance to notice they were

really need folks to slow down in that area and be careful"He said officers also regularly issue tickets to drivers failing to yield at crosswalks"People need to remember crosswalks mean you have to stop if there is a pedestrian or bicyclist at the crosswalk Drivers are obligated to stop" he saidNielson said a good number of the stop-arm violations statewide are due to distracted drivers coming from the opposite direction"That’s where the drivers really need to pay attention to what’s happening around their vehicles so they can be prepared to come to a safe stop" she saidChildren are not able to accurately gauge the distance of oncoming traffic she said so if you see a bus you need to always be aware "It is a community effort to keep all the kids safe getting on or off the bus" she

not likely to be a problem for you unless a) you really like raspberries and b) you just spent a year on Mars Which brings us to Christiane Heinicke Heinicke did just return from Mars on Aug 28 along with her five crewmates and all of them were immediately given a chance for a quick snack of their first fresh fruits and vegetables in a year before having to meet the press Heinicke grabbed as many of the raspberries as she could the better part of a supermarket-sized container and worked happily through them during the question and answer session that followed You earn a few indulgences when you’ve just spent a year like she did Strictly speaking the three-woman three-man crew did not actually go to Mars but you wouldn’t know it from the look of the place they spent the last 365 days in a dome-shaped habitat (known as the hab) on a red-brown lava plain 8200 feet (2500 m) up on the flank of Mauna Loa in Hawaii They saw no human being other than each other and communicated with the outside world only by audio video and Internet (all with a 20-minute one-way time delay to simulate the 20-second light lag between Earth and Mars) The HI-SEAS Mission 4 crew after returning from 365 days in isolation on Aug 28 2016 From left to right: Andrzej Stewart Christiane Heinicke Carmel Johnston Tristan Bassingthwaighte Cyprien Verseux Sheyna Gifford Cassandra Klos for TIME When they went outside which they did periodically for geological field studies it was always in a water-cooled spacesuit When they were inside their days were tightly scheduled with real experiments on plant growth and soil chemistry and with constant work maintaining the hab’s power plumbing and other systems They unwound with movies books and video games in their downtime of which there was very little “You have to suspend your disbelief a bit but not too much” says crew member Andrzej Stewart the mission engineer who has worked as a flight controller on three of NASA’s unmanned missions to Mars That authenticity is important because while it’s easy relatively speaking to develop the hardware and procedures for a crewed mission to Mars the health of the human passengers is an order of magnitude harder And emotional health in particular is the hardest part How the mind copes with the stressors associated with what are known as ICE environments (isolated confined and extreme) has always bedeviled long-duration explorers Read More: Mock Mars Crew Returns After a Year in Isolation For that reason the Mauna Loa facility known as HI-SEAS for Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation was created Co-managed by NASA and the University of Hawaii and built by Henk Rogers an entrepreneur venture capitalist and video game developer (he counts Tetris among his inventions) HI-SEAS first went into operation in 2012 and had already hosted two crews for four months and one for eight months before this recent mission The six astronauts (that title is preferred by the HI-SEAS operation and the crews do kind of earn it) emerged from their confinement at 9:00 am local time and were greeted by their families and the press It was already over 80 F (27 C) at sea level in Hawaii but the HI-SEAS peak was wrapped in a cold damp cloud and the temperature fought to make it to 50 F (10 C) “I forgot it would be so wet” one of the crew wearing only a short-sleeved HI-SEAS shirt said as he felt the first outdoor air on his face since the summer of 2015 The astronauts all had small bald patches on the backs of their heads though only the men’s were visible That was the handiwork of biomedical and aerospace engineer Jocelyn Dunn of Purdue University who was a member of the eight-month crew and is a principle researcher for the current one Her work involves looking for levels of cortisol a stress hormone in the astronauts’ bodies and hair preserves it nicely Beginning with the shaved patch as they went into confinement the crew members would let the hair grow out about a centimeter each month shave it and set it aside in a dated sample container and repeat that eleven more times over the course of the year Analyzing when the levels of cortisol are the highest will help mission planners determine which parts of the journey require astronauts to have the lightest workload and the most distractions The stress does build and for some astronauts a geology field trip was sometimes the best way to relieve it “The spacesuit was a little like being in the shower” Dunn says with a laugh “It’s private and the noise of the fan is like the noise of the water That’s why people like to sing” Read More: Heres What NASA Needs If Were Really Going to Mars Spacewalks however come only so often There were 145 over the course of the last year which sounds like a lot but it averages out at one every 25 days and since there are only two suits not everyone gets to go “I once spent 21 straight days in the hab” says environmental scientist Carmel Johnston who was the commander of the mission “It gave me a chance to catch up on experiments but after a while I really did have to get out” The hab is designed to keep interpersonal stress to as much of a minimum as possible and it makes good use of its limited room There are 13000 cubic ft (368 cu m) of habitable volume and 1200 ft (111 sq m) of floor space There is a sleeping loft upstairs with six small private bedrooms for each crewmember across 424 sq ft (39 sq m) of floor space The habitat is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen two bathrooms a shower and an exercise area All of the astronauts have their own desks and a lab and work shop is attached to the main residence Still there is friction some of which is cultural “I’m German so I don’t talk much” says Heinicke the crew

entirely made from shelf-stable foods offered a good time for everyone to sit down together once a day and in fact it was typically the only meal the astronauts shared “The Americans tended to get to bed early and get up early so they’d have breakfast then” says crewmember Tristan Bassingthwaighte the mission architect “The Europeans had a later bedtime and a later wake-up” As in any group too there were besties and almost immediately reports crewmember Cyprien Verseux an astrobiologist from Italy especially close pairs formed All of those pairs turned out to be male-female That does not suggest cosmic romance which would be impossible in such close surroundings anyway It may suggest however that the crew members chose to buddy up with people who have complementary traitsprecisely the kind of cross-gender tempering that’s valued in other workplaces One very lucky break the crew got this year was that there were no serious illnesses or injuries which meant no one had to be evacuated (Colds and flus were not likely to happen anyway since if no one was carrying a virus when lockdown began there would be no one to bring it in later) That allowed crew physician Sheyna Gifford to tend mostly to her research work treating the occasional small wound or upset stomach but little more Ironically Gifford came closer than anyone else to getting hurt when she was on a geology expedition and a lava tube collapsed under her causing her to twist and bang her knee “It was a field injury which is inevitably going to happen” she says “but I was able to rehab it” Read More: Heres What Murdered Mars It is in Gifford’s discipline that mission planners are also considering the far worse possibility for real Mars missions a crew member who suffers an injury or illness for which there is no recovering from on-site The questions run from when or if it’s possible to turn back home and what in a worst-case scenario to do with the remains A human body deliberately exposed to the environment of space or Mars would become so thoroughly freeze-dried that it could be reduced to coarse grains simply by being placed in a bag and vigorously shaken cremation without the fire That’s a possibility no one wants to contemplate but it’s a fact of a species as fragile as ours that we’ve always had to address when we go exploring It’s a fact of a species as ambitious as ours however that we have reached the point at which the exploration we’re talking about is of Mars The six men and women of HI-SEAS did not move a single mile closer to the Red Planet in all the time they were in Hawaii but the Mars enterprise as a whole took an important step forward Correction: The original version of the story misstated the number of crews HI-SEAS had hosted before the recent mission It was
