The Philippines president attacked the U.N.'s high commissioner for human rights for suggesting the organization should open a murder investigation against Duterte, describing Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein as an "idiot" and claiming he'd "burn down the United Nations."
The law enforcement challenges caused by cross-border crime are relentless and ever-changing in Yuma County, but the sheriff is clear on the formula for border security:. “You have to have a tactical infrastructure, you have to have the boots on the ground, you have to have the electronic surveillance, and you have to have the prosecution side,” he said.
“What’s happening on the border ain’t coming across and staying here—it’s going throughout the United States.”
The State Police report obtained by Mass Live allegedly includes a Snapchat video showing Spacey, 59, groping the front of the teenage victim’s pants during the alleged July 2016 assault at the Club Car restaurant.
According to Mass Live, the 18-year-old victim told police he sent a video to his girlfriend over Snapchat to prove that his version of events occurred. The teen’s girlfriend also spoke to police and confirmed the existence of the clip, the report said.
Late next month, the public will get to witness the Super Blood Wolf Moon, a total lunar eclipse that will take place on January 20. The celestial event will come nearly a year after the 2018 Super Blue Moon total lunar eclipse, this one featuring a red tinge caused by the moon passing through the Earth’s shadow. Want to see it for yourself? You’ll need to be in North America.
The event will take place on the night of January 20 leading into January 21, depending on the viewer’s time zone and which part of the eclipse they’re seeing. The event will start at 9:36PM and the total eclipse will start at 11:41PM in the Eastern time zone, ultimately ending a little before 3AM ET.
Germany led the world for the number of government device requests (13,704), followed by the US (4,570), Australia, Spain (2,276) and Singapore (1,689).
Australia made more requests than China (751), the UK (572), Japan (446), New Zealand (315) and Canada (15).
The highest compliance rate – for a country with more than one request – was in China, where Apple agreed to 94% of the government’s requests, granting access on 705 occasions. The total number of requests in China covered 30,764 devices.
"Our business is sustainable fashion. The traditional way of buying, wearing, washing and throwing away overpriced underwear is a terrible waste of resources. And it is extremely harmful to the environment," says 27-year-old Mads Fibiger, CEO and co-founder of Organic Basics.
Washing and drying account for two-thirds of the total impact on the environment, and that is why Organic Basics got started on their underwear. The special ingredient is silver. This particular metal is antimicrobial which is why NASA uses silver to purify water for astronauts.
The battle comes amid Disney's efforts to ramp up its own online video offerings, which can be sold directly to the consumer without going through a cable TV system.
Disney is warning customers of Verizon's Fios that they may lose access to Disney channels — including ESPN, local ABC stations and other channels...
Hate to make an obvious comment, but the US likely owes more money to China than any other country. Hope someone was reading the fine print when we borrowed money from them. On another note, having the Chinese run the port for them will be the best thing that ever happened to Kenya. Maybe they'll hire Bathhouse Barry as a 'tug-driver'.
St. Louis, MO – After an eleven-day bench trial in May, U.S. District Court Judge Audrey Fleissig returned guilty verdicts on eight counts, involving four victims, relating to child exploitation and child pornography produced and possessed by Loren “Sensei” Copp, former owner of Dojo Pizza located at 4601 Morganford Road.
According to testimony at trial, Copp held himself out to be a trusted member of the community as a youth pastor, community activist, martial arts instructor, and business owner. He used these positions to gain the trust of parents to gain access to their children. For several years defendant Copp groomed and sexually abused two minor females who had been in his custody since 2009. The grooming process began when defendant Copp began touching the victims’ buttocks while playing “the butt game,” which then led to him touching their vaginas and breasts. Eventually, Copp began having sex with both girls, and he would record the sex acts with a cell phone or video recorder. While at the Dojo Pizza property, Copp would have sex with each girl multiple times a week, and while there he took pornographic pictures of one victim’s genitals and breasts. Copp would also watch pornography with one of the victims in his office at the Dojo Pizza property.
C-51 expands the “rape shield” protections for sexual assault complainants, by restricting the ability of the accused to use communications by a complainant or witness that are “of a sexual nature” or “for a sexual purpose” as part of his defence, particularly to establish the defence of “mistaken belief in consent” (remember Lucy DeCoutere’s email to Ghomeishi following an allegedly harrowing assault, “I love your hands!”?). An accused will be prohibited from introducing these kinds of sexually explicit texts or emails as evidence in court unless a judge first rules them to be admissible, after conducting a closed hearing with the Crown prosecutor, which the complainant may attend, accompanied by her own lawyer if she chooses (giving the phrase “lawyered up” new depth of meaning).
There have been several high profile cases where false accusation of rape were proven false through text messages or email. Mattress girl is a perfect example. RIP Canada.
A federal rule requires all hospitals to post online a master list of prices for the services they provide so consumers can review them starting Jan. 1.
The health care industry nationally has a reputation for having little price transparency, which can make it difficult for consumers to price compare. But the hospital’s master list prices, sometimes called a chargemaster, is also not a complete look, consumer advocates say.
With European elections scheduled for next May, momentum is growing for the so-called Yellow Vests protest movement here to transform itself into a political party, a step that could shake up the French political scene.
The national secretary of the French Communist Party, Fabien Roussel, is calling on supporters of the protest movement to join his electoral list for the May elections.
Alternatively, he told the daily newspaper Libération, they could also set up an independent list which his party, and probably others, would support.
Yellow-Vest protestors in France must encompass a variety of political ideologues within their movement to have the Communist party call for their support.
The now-dead deal, first agreed to in 2014, is the latest example to come to light of the US government's ongoing distrust of the Chinese tech maker. The company's products were banned within government agencies earlier this year.
Under the terms of agreement, Huawei would have provided free internet to all of the high-priced indoor suites in Washington's stadium. In exchange, the team would put up advertisements for the Chinese tech giant around FedEx Field -- no money would have changed hands in the deal.
When he was ramping up production of the Model 3 Tesla, he put in as many as 120 hours in a week. He slept at the factory because he had no time to go home. He called 2018 "the most difficult and painful year of my career." "It was excruciating," he told The New York Times.
In late October Musk finally said he was working a much more manageable schedule of 80 to 90 hours a week.
[...] So why does Musk push himself? To hear Musk tell it, he is trying to save planet Earth. Literally. Musk wants Tesla to be successful so the world moves away from driving cars that run on petroleum-derived fuel.
Over the past few years, there have been a number of debates and legal fights concerning questions around Title IX and due process. Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is supposed to protect people in educational settings from sex discrimination. It has been interpreted in some questionable ways, lately, with regards to the due process of anyone accused. But, now it's also impacting some other areas as well. The folks at FIRE highlight a fairly horrific appeals court ruling in the 4th Circuit, overturning a lower court ruling (that had dismissed the case), saying that a university might be required to ban access to certain websites under Title IX.
