Mysterious Delay At The Reiser Murder Trial

Filed under
Reiser

Without an explanation, an Alameda County Superior Court judge ordered a 24-hour delay Monday in the long-waited trial of Han Reiser for the murder of his estranged wife, Nina, whose body has never been found and who the defense claims fled to her native Russia to escape a messy divorce.

Nina Reiser, 31, disappeared last year after dropping her two children off at her estranged husband's house in a quiet section of the Oakland hills.

Prosecutors say there's no great mystery about what happened; they believe they can prove she was killed by her husband, Hans Reiser, even though her body hasn't been recovered. But the defense has maintained there is no proof Nina Reiser is dead, let alone slain, and she may very well be secretly living in her native Russia.

Opening arguments were rescheduled for Tuesday.

Rest is Rehash here

And:

Hans Reiser's Murder Trial is off to a slow start. Today with a packed hallway opening statements were suddenly postponed with little explanation.

In the courtroom though was a huge picture of Nina Reiser with one of her children as a baby. Hans Reiser was there too with his attorneys. I did not see him glance at the photo. By the time we left nothing was said in public. We did hear briefly from Hans Reiser's mother who said she believes her son is innocent. But she stayed away from reporters in the hallway as everyone took her picture.

Not much more here either




Han's defence

The article says the following:
"But the defense has maintained there is no proof Nina Reiser is dead, let alone slain, and she may very well be secretly living in her native Russia."

I really doubt that but how hard or easy is it to leave the US via a fake passport or something? This is probably just a desperate claim by the defense.

Top 3 open source alternatives to Google Analytics

Let’s start off by taking a look at the open source application that rivals Google Analytics for functions: Piwik. Piwik does most of what Google Analytics does, and chances are it packs the features that you need. Those features include metrics on the number of visitors hitting your site, data on where they come from (both on the web and geographically), from what pages they leave your site, and the ability to track search engine referrals. Piwik also has a number of reports and you can customize the dashboard to view the metrics that you want to see. To make your life easier, Piwik integrates with over 65 content management, ecommerce, and online forum systems like WordPress, Magneto, Joomla!, and vBulletin using plugins. With anything else, you just need to add a tracking code to a page on your site. Read more

AN EARLY VIEW OF GTK+ 3.16

We’ve had long-standing feature requests to turn scrollbars into overlayed indicators, for touch systems. An implementation of this idea has been merged now. We show traditional scrollbars when a mouse is detected, otherwise we fade in narrow, translucent indicators. The indicators are rendered on top of the content and don’t take up extra space. When you move the pointer over the indicator, it turns into a full-width scrollbar that can be used as such. Read more
