Eric Dungey becomes SU’s all-time passing leader in the third quarter against West Virginia

first_imgORLANDO, Fla.— Senior quarterback Eric Dungey is now Syracuse’s all-time leading passer. A third-quarter shovel pass to Chris Elmore of Friday evening’s Camping World Bowl pushed Dungey to 9,194 passing yards, passing Ryan Nassib (9,190 yards) atop the all-time list.Dungey entered his final game with SU on Friday holding 18 program records including passing yards per game (237.8), total offense (11,008) and rushing touchdowns by a quarterback (35). In 2018, he’s thrown for 2565 yards and 17 touchdowns while also rushing for 732 yards and 15 touchdowns.Dungey amassed this feat without playing a full season until this year. Missing four games his freshman season and three in his sophomore and junior years, Dungey’s passing touchdowns and yards are the most he’s had in a single season with the Orange.

Court Awards US$76K against Chinese Company

first_imgThe commercial court at the Temple of Justice has ruled against Lichi Incorporated, a Chinese sand mining company, ordering it to pay US$76,892 plus six percent interest to several of its workers.The court took the decision last Tuesday in the absence of the company’s representatives.Although throughout the trial the company’s lawyers questioned the credibility some of the witnesses who testified during the case, Judge Richard Klah said: “Having examined the evidence and documents, I found Lichi guilty and they must therefore pay the workers U$76,892 plus statutory interest of six percent.’’ Before Judge Klah’s decision, he asked the court to enter a default judgement against the company since none of its representatives were present in court.In their suit, the workers alleged that from October 2012 to June 2013, they entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) under which they supplied a total of 4,586 loads of river sand to the company, and that under the agreement the company was to pay US$22 for each of the load of sand totalling U$76,892. The company, however, refused to pay despite several negotiations, which led to the suit and the subsequent judgment for the plaintiffs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

These rotting rabbits could complicate human murder trials

first_imgWhen someone finds a human body, investigators estimate the time since death by comparing it with other bodies—but sometimes the best comparisons available are what happens to animal carcasses, not human ones. Entomologists have even testified in court about human decomposition based on evidence from pigs. But can animals really stand in for humans when justice is on the line? To find out, researchers monitored the decomposition of five human, pig, and rabbit carcasses in a wooded area near Knoxville, Tennessee, on three separate occasions: in spring, summer, and winter. Recording how quickly different body parts on each carcass decayed, they added them up into a measure called “total body scoring.” In the spring and summer, when there were more insects about, the nonhuman animals decomposed faster than humans. But in the winter, humans decomposed much more rapidly than pigs—likely because scavengers like raccoons and robins went for the humans first. The findings, presented at the American Academy of Forensic Science meeting in February, are preliminary, and the researchers are still preparing their work to be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal. But the stark differences in the way that human and nonhuman carcasses break down casts doubt on experts who estimate the time since a human’s death from animal carcasses—and the study’s results could one day be used in court to argue against those experts’ testimony.last_img read more
