Arts and crafts kits for kids get more creative
Thursday, 01 September 2011 11:35

Arterro(Courtesy by AP) Not so long ago, it was hard to find an art kit for children that involved much more than some pompoms, glitter and a few pipe cleaners.

Today's creativity kit is a whole different pot of paint. Some introduce new artistic techniques, while others offer open-ended project possibilities.

If you're looking for stay-at-home spring break craft activities that encourage experimentation and expression, you're in luck.

Behind the Scenes - Sparks beneath an old gem—Seattle’s Chinatown

Hing Hay ParkHidden at the top of a steep incline on the outer edges of Seattle’s International District (ID) lays a green haven. Thick groves of trees and bushes conceal a staircase leading to a colorful sign that read “Danny Woo’s Children’s Garden.”

Heads of lettuce and herbs poke out of the many plots in the sun exposed land. The sudden call of roosters caught my attention as I turned to the right to notice a small pen with several roosters pecking at their feed. A young gentleman entered the pen as he gently picked each rooster up to move them aside to change their water.

Law Talk - Preferred questions about the case of First Hill building Murder (1)

Lee & Lee PS Law Talk

Q: According to the police that day, the initial interview with the defendant was as follow:
Police: Who did it?
Defendant: What?
Police: Stabbed you and him.
Defendant: I did.
If a defendant confesses prior to his obtaining of an attorney, would it be harder to prove not guilty by self-defense or mental illness?
A: When the police have probable cause to arrest a suspect for a crime, they must advise him of his constitutional rights, known as the Miranda rights after a landmark Supreme Court case.  Those rights include the right to remain silent and the right to have an attorney present during questioning.  A suspect’s statements to police prior to obtaining an attorney do not necessarily make a self-defense or diminished mental capacity defense more difficult to prove at trial.  Generally, most defense lawyers will advise their clients not to say anything to the police.  Lawyers prefer not to make the police’s job easier.  However, sometimes the independent actions and words of a suspect can help to establish a self-defense or mental defense claim.  A suspect who cannot understand simple commands, who mumbles nonsense, who appears distant and unresponsive and who displays erratic behavior may be exhibiting signs of diminished capacity.  An intelligent suspect who immediately tells police that he was defending himself and can prove prior threats from the victim may be helping establish a legal claim of self-defense.  In contrast, the suspect who flees the scene or lies to police may be making a future self-defense claim less credible.
