  • Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Reportedly Under Criminal Investigation in College Cheating Scandal

    Golocal247.com news

    Frazer Harrison/GettyJust days after Lori Loughlin pleaded not guilty in the college admissions bribery scam, media reports suggest one of her daughters could be next to face a criminal probe.Loughlin and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are each accused of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering after allegedly paying $500,000 for each of their daughters to be USC rowing recruits despite neither being active in the sport. Each count carries a maximum 20-year prison term.Their eldest daughter, Isabella Giannulli, 20, deleted her popular Instagram account late Wednesday just as reports surfaced that she received a formal letter from prosecutors that could lead to potential charges.The Daily Mail reports that Loughlin’s daughter received a letter of intent from federal prosecutors in Massachusetts in early April as part of the ongoing Operation Varsity Blues investigation. Last week, the Wall Street Journal also reported that several students had received ‘target letters’ from federal investigators in cases where the student may have been complicit. Several students whose parents are accused of buying or bribing officials to ensure their children’s college admission have been suspended, but so far none have been criminally charged. The Daily Mail, quoting an unnamed source, reported that Loughlin’s daughter had received a letter. “It is a not-so-veiled threat. [The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts] is making it pretty clear that they have evidence that very strongly suggests she knew of the illegal plot.”Loughlin’s younger daughter Olivia Jade, 19, who is also implicated in the ordeal, still has her very popular Instagram account up though she has not posted anything since Feb. 28. This week the famous couple rejected a plea bargain that would have potentially kept them from serving jail time in exchange for a guilty plea. An associate of Loughlin told CNN that she felt she had to plead not guilty. “Lori doesn’t understand why she’s getting so much criticism for pleading not guilty,” the friend told CNN. “People must not realize that she had no choice. The plea deal has been taken off the table, and this is the only way they've been told she and Mossimo can avoid jail time and get another plea. They are hoping justice will prevail.”Felicity Huffman, who is one of 13 parents accused in the scandal, did enter a guilty plea this week along with several other parents embroiled in the scandal.

  • Man with two cans of petrol and lighters arrested inside New York cathedral days after Notre Dame fire

    Golocal247.com news

    A man has been arrested after walking into St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York with two cans of petrol, lighter fluid and lighters just days after a fire tore through Notre Dame in Paris.The 37-year-old New Jersey man allegedly pulled up in a minivan outside the landmark in Manhattan on Wednesday night, walked around the area, and then returned to the vehicle to retrieve the items, said New York Police Department (NYPD).“As he enters the cathedral he’s confronted by a cathedral security officer who asks him where he’s going and informs him he can’t proceed into the cathedral carrying these things,” said NYPD deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism John Miller.“At that point some gasoline apparently spills out onto the floor as he’s turned around.”Security then raised the alarm with counter-terrorism officers who were standing outside, Mr Miller said. The officers caught up with the man and he was arrested after he was questioned and his story was found to be inconsistent.“His basic story was he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue,” said Mr Miller.“That his car had run out of gas. We took a look at the vehicle – it was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.”He added: “It’s hard to say exactly what his intentions were, but I think the totality of circumstances of an individual walking into an iconic location like St Patrick’s Cathedral carrying over four gallons of gasoline, two bottles of lighter fluid and lighters is something that we would have great concern over.”Mr Miller said the suspect is known to police and officers are currently looking into his background. St Patrick’s Cathedral was built in 1878 and has installed a sprinkler-like system during recent renovations. Its wooden roof is also coated with fire retardant.Much of Notre Dame Cathedral’s roof was damaged and its spire collapsed after a fire broke out at about 6.43pm local time on Monday.It is not yet clear what caused the blaze, which took firefighters 15 hours to put out.French president Emmanuel Macron vowed the 850-year-old Gothic landmark would be rebuilt within five years.A combined €800m (£693m) has already been pledged by a number of companies and business tycoons to help rebuild the Unesco World Heritage site.

  • Pelosi, Schumer Call on Mueller to Testify Publicly Over ‘Partisan’ Handling of Mueller Report

    Golocal247.com news

    The Democratic leaders in the House and Senate called Thursday for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to testify publicly before Congress in response to what they called Attorney General William Barr's "regrettably partisan handling" of Mueller's final report on the Russia investigation.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer requested in a joint statement that the special counsel testify to both chambers "as soon as possible."“Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” Schumer and Pelosi said.“We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible. The American people deserve to hear the truth.”Barr is scheduled to give a press conference later Thursday morning just before he submits a redacted version of the report to lawmakers, after which it will be released to the public through the special counsel's website.Earlier this month, Barr described in testimony to a House Appropriations subcommittee the four categories of information in Mueller’s final report that will be redacted. The Justice Department will redact grand-jury information, information that would reveal intelligence sources and methods, information that affects the privacy of “peripheral players” not charged as a result of the investigation, and information that would compromise ongoing prosecutions, Barr said.The attorney general in March submitted a four-page outline to Congress of the almost 400-page report’s conclusions, stating that Mueller had found no collusion between the Trump team and the Kremlin but that the special counsel left open the question of whether the president had obstructed justice during the investigation. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there was not enough evidence to charge Trump with obstruction.Correction: An earlier version of this article stated that the Democratic leaders had called on Attorney General William Barr, instead of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, to testify before Congress.

  • Exclusive: Dispute flares among U.S. officials over Trump administration Iran arms control report - sources

    Golocal247.com news

    U.S. President Donald Trump is intensifying a drive to contain Iran's power in the Middle East, which has raised fears that his administration wants to topple the Tehran government or lay the groundwork to justify military action. The administration says it is trying to halt Iranian "malign behavior" in its support for Islamist militants in the region and denies seeking the overthrow of the Islamic republic's government. The clash among U.S. officials emerged on Tuesday when the State Department posted on its website, and then removed, an unclassified version of an annual report to Congress assessing compliance with arms control agreements that the sources saw as skewed against Iran.

  • Opioid crisis: US doctors accused of trading prescriptions for sex and cash in major scandal

    Golocal247.com news

    Scores of medical professionals across seven states were charged by federal prosecutors on Wednesday with schemes to illegally distribute millions of pain pills — in some cases exchanging opioid prescriptions for sex, in others for cash with an added “concierge fee”, and in one case routinely prescribing opioids to friends on Facebook.Officials called the case the “single largest prescription opioid law enforcement operation in history”.The indictments, unsealed in federal court in Cincinnati on Wednesday, accuse 60 people, including 31 doctors, seven pharmacists and eight nurses of involvement in the schemes, which included opioid prescriptions issued for gratuitous medical procedures like unnecessary tooth-pulling.In some cases doctors simply handed out signed blank prescription forms.“These cases involve approximately 350,000 opioid prescriptions and more than 32 million pills — the equivalent of a dose of opioids for every man, woman and child across the states of Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and West Virginia combined,” Brian Benczkowski, an assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department’s criminal division, said at a news conference.Most of the charges were filed against people in those five states; one person was charged in Pennsylvania and one in Louisiana.Nationally, more than 70,000 deaths in 2017 were attributed to drug overdoses, with about one-quarter of them caused by prescription opioids.States wholly or partly in Appalachia recorded some of the highest rates of drug overdose deaths that year: West Virginia was first in the nation, Ohio second and Kentucky fifth.“The opioid epidemic is the deadliest drug crisis in American history, and Appalachia has suffered the consequences more than perhaps any other region,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement.Prosecutors accused the medical professionals who were charged on Wednesday of conducting a wide range of schemes.Some involved small leagues of doctors and their office staffs, while in other cases, people acted alone, according to the indictments.Some doctors performed unneeded medical procedures to justify the pills they prescribed, prosecutors said, while others simply passed out prescriptions without going to the trouble of disguising their purpose.One of the doctors facing charges in Ohio had at one time prescribed more controlled substances than anyone else in the state, prosecutors said.A pharmacy in Dayton, Ohio, was accused of dispensing more than 1.75 million pills.And a doctor in Tennessee who called himself the “Rock Doc” was accused of prescribing hundreds of thousands of pills in exchange for sex.A doctor in Alabama, federal prosecutors said, “allegedly recruited prostitutes and other young women with whom he had sexual relationships” to become his patients, and allowed them to use illicit drugs at his home.In some cases, the quantity of drugs prescribed to the same patients at short intervals indicated that they could have been taking as many as 15 pills a day, prosecutors said.The charges announced Wednesday include unlawful distribution of controlled substances and conspiracy to obtain controlled substances by fraud.Prosecutors said that the charges could result in sentences of up to 50 years in prison.The indictments stem from four months of investigative work by the Appalachian Regional Prescription Opioid Task Force, a group of prosecutors, federal agents and data analysts that was created in December 2018 to find patterns suggesting that doctors were prescribing inordinately high numbers of pain pills, and then follow up with traditional law enforcement techniques, including the use of informants and undercover investigators.Cases like this have been prosecuted before, including a Justice Department operation in June that resulted in charges against 162 defendants, including 76 doctors, for fraudulently prescribing and distributing opioids.Those cases were handled within the larger health fraud unit at the Justice Department.The Appalachian task force is different, Benczkowski said, because it is exclusively concerned with corrupt medical professionals, and is “doing it in a region of the country that is probably the hardest hit.”The New York Times

  • A robot that kind of looks like Wall-E’s big brother helped save Notre Dame

    Golocal247.com news

    Notre Dame was reportedly only about 15 to 30 minutes away from a fire completely destroying the historic cathedral earlier this week when Paris firefighters decided to play their last hand. Commander Jean-Claude Gallet knew it was time to send their very best firefighter into the heart of the blaze in a last-ditch effort to save the building.Needless to say, a lot was riding on Colossus, an 1,100-pound tank of a robot that can spray more than 660 gallons of water a minute, as he rumbled toward the cathedral.Colossus, manufactured by a French company called Shark Robotics, took aim at the cathedral's stone walls. According to Gallet, it was the heroically named Colossus robot -- fighting the fire from the inside that tore through the structure as the world watched in horror -- that saved the day. And made it less critical for firefighters to enter the building and risk their own lives."Time was against us, the wind was against us and we had to get the upper hand," Gabriel Plus, a spokesman for the Paris fire brigade, told The Times of London. "The priority we set was to save the two belfries. Imagine if the timber of the belfries had been weakened and the bells had collapsed. That was really our fear. In the beginning, it was not impossible to imagine that the cathedral structure could collapse."The Colossus robot, according to Shark Robotics, is 2.5 feet wide and a little more than 5 feet long. It can be controlled via joystick from as far as 1,000 feet away, it can crawl up stairs and it can withstand not only water and fire but even thermal radiation, according to the company.Lithium ion batteries also allow it to last for as much as eight hours.According to the company, Colossus is deployed with the Paris Firefighter Brigade as well as a variety of other French regional services. Its presence allowed the Paris firefighters to act quickly when they'd previously been weighing a decision they didn't know how to answer -- should they direct the firefighters on hand toward saving the roof from fire? Or focus on keeping the flames from spreading throughout the structure?Complicating matters was the fact the wind was blowing, and a police drone flying above the cathedral didn't reveal much in the way of actionable information.Reliance on the Colossus robot during this incident, of course, has already sparked talk of relying on such machines even more in dangerous settings that involves fires or other elements. Companies and individuals from around the world have already started pledging funds to help rebuild the 855-year-old cathedral, but it's certainly worth highlighting the fact that it's able to rebuilt and saved at all thanks to a quick-acting, talented firefighter that also happens to be a robot.

  • Fossil hunter tries to sell baby T-Rex skeleton on eBay for £2.25m, enraging scientists

    Golocal247.com news

    A fossil hunter’s attempt to sell a young Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton on eBay for $2.95 million (£2.25 million) set off a furore among scientists who warned that it needed to be studied, not sold to the highest bidder.The skeleton’s owner, Alan Detrich, defended his decision to try to sell the 15-foot fossil to a wealthy private collector, arguing that it could still be subject to research.“It’s very hard to reach a billionaire,” he said Wednesday, noting that he hoped a wealthy bidder from Europe or Asia would emerge. “Putting it on eBay is one way to do it.”That outlook has angered scientists who have questioned why Mr Detrich lent the skeleton to the University of Kansas Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum two years ago, saying that putting it on public view was part of a strategy to sell the specimen to a rich investor.“Mr Detrich has tried to capitalise on the museum’s good faith by using the exhibition and scientific attention as selling points” on eBay, the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology said in a letter last week.It added: “These events undermine the scientific process for studying past life as well as the prospect for future generations to share the natural heritage of our planet.”The skeleton, believed to be a four-year-old T-Rex, was displayed at the museum until recently and has been returned to Mr Detrich.The museum asked that Mr Detrich remove all references to the museum from the original eBay listing, which advertises the fossil’s 21-inch skull and 12 teeth in the lower jaw. The fossil hunter complied.“Most Likely the Only BABY T-Rex in the World!” the ad reads. “It’s a RARE opportunity indeed to ever see a baby REX.”Mr Detrich, who lives in Overbrook, Kansas, said he hoped the exposure from the eBay sale would attract a billionaire wealthy enough to pay his $2.95 million price tag. He did not inform the museum of the sale, he said, but did offer to give it a cast of the specimen.He said he agreed to lend the fossil to the museum two years ago after he and his brother, Robert, unearthed it in 2013 on property he leased near Jordan, Montana, where he hunts for fossils.Mr Detrich said it was not the first time he had received pushback from the scientific community for selling fossils.In 1999, he sought to sell a T-Rex skeleton on eBay for $5.8 million (£4.5 million) and was unsuccessful after pranksters flooded the auction with fake bids. He said he wanted the juvenile skeleton to be studied even if it ended up with a wealthy collector.Mr Detrich, who said he is in his 70s, began hunting fossils three decades ago.He is also a sculptor who creates religious iconography and other works from dinosaur bones, petrified wood and steel. During the interview, he pointed out that he was voted one of People magazine’s “Top Bachelors” in 2001.Leonard Krishtalka, the director of the museum, declined to be interviewed.But Anne Tangeman, a spokeswoman for the museum, said in an email: “Our intent was to keep the specimen in the museum sphere to be enjoyed by visitors until it was sold to a museum.”She added, “We learned early last week that the owner had abruptly listed the specimen for sale on eBay without prior warning or checking with us.”Mr Detrich said he had recently tried to find a museum to buy the skeleton but had no luck.That caused a rift with the Kansas museum, he said, because the original eBay listing made it appear as if the museum was promoting the sale to a wealthy investor. It was not.Early this month, Mr Detrich said, he received an email from Krishtalka balking at the eBay sale.“He said, ‘What are you doing?’” Mr Detrich recalled.“Well, I own this thing,” Mr Detrich said of the T-Rex. “It is mine. I can do whatever I want.” So far, he has not received any bids.The New York TImes

    Sears Holdings Corp sued longtime former Chairman Eddie Lampert, his hedge fund ESL Investments and others like Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, claiming they illegally siphoned billions of dollars of assets from the retailer before it went bankrupt. The lawsuit, made public on Thursday, was filed by the restructuring team winding down Sears' bankruptcy estate and suing on behalf of creditors, many of whom blame Lampert for the retailer's downfall. The complaint seeks the repayment of "billions of dollars of value looted from Sears," including while it was in what Lampert would later call a "death spiral" where it sold core assets to meet daily expenses with no real plan for becoming profitable.

    Electricity shortages have been a perennial concern for North Korea, and leader Kim Jong Un has called for greater use of renewable energy as part of his drive for self-sufficiency as sanctions have ratcheted higher in response to the country's nuclear and missile programs. Now ever more households, factories and businesses are equipped with solar panels, leading to a greater variety of home electronics products available in increasingly common private markets known as jangmadang, defectors and recent visitors say. Among the hottest selling items are water purifiers, hair straighteners and electric bicycles, mostly from China but some made in North Korea or even smuggled in from South Korea.

An Amazon spokesperson did not explicitly confirm plans to throw in the towel on domestic e-commerce, but said the company was looking to focus more on cross-border sales.

  • Three renowned climbers feared killed in major avalanche in Canada

    Golocal247.com news

    Three renowned mountain climbers are feared to have died after an avalanche in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.American Jess Roskelley and Austrians David Lama and Hansjorg Auer were attempting to scale a challenging route up the east face of Howse Peak in Alberta's Banff National Park, Canadian officials said.The group was last heard from on Tuesday morning, when Mr Roskelley spoke to his father, John Roskelley, himself a world-renowned climber.Search efforts began on Wednesday when the climbers failed to check in as planned, and Parks Canada said a helicopter crew saw evidence of several large-scale avalanches which had engulfed climbing equipment.Stephen Holeczi, Parks Canada’s visitor safety specialist, said there was “strong evidence” all three climbers had been killed, without going into further detail.Mr Holeczi said the avalanche that hit the group rated three on a five-point scale, roughly strong enough to destroy a small building, or uproot several trees.John Roskelley said the group had been attempting a route that was first conquered only in 2000.“It's just one of those routes where you have to have the right conditions or it turns into a nightmare. This is one of those trips where it turned into a nightmare,” he told Washington newspaper The Spokane-Review.The elder Mr Roskelley said he had climbed the 10,810-foot Howse Peak himself in the past and would travel to Canada in an attempt to help with the recovery effort.The area where the climbers were presumed to have got into trouble was “above a basin”, he said. “There must have been a lot of snow that came down and got them off the face. “When you're climbing mountains, danger is not too far away...It's terrible for my wife and I,” he said. “But it's even worse for his wife." The younger Mr Roskelley, 36, was most famous for having climbed Mount Everest in 2003 at the age of 20, then becoming the youngest American to have scaled the world’s highest peak. His father John joined him on that climb.Mr Lama, 28, was the subject of a documentary film in 2014 about his attempt to free-climb the Compressor Route on the Cerro Torre mountain in Patagonia, something never achieved before.His father was a mountain guide from Nepal, and he won numerous climbing competitions as a teenager.Mr Auer, 35, grew up near the Dolomites in Austria and was best known for completing the first ascent of the south face on Nilgiri South in Nepal.The North Face, which sponsored the trio, said in a statement that the group were “missing, and local search and rescue has assumed the worst”.“We are doing everything we can to support their families, friends and community during this difficult time,” the firm said.
