The parents bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into selective schools, authorities said.Caught in the scandal is the former Owner and President of KFMB radio and TV, Elisabeth Kimmel, who has a home in La Jolla. Del Mar businessman Toby MacFarlane is also one of the nearly 50 people indicted. Also a family from the Los Angeles area is accused of bribing a University of San Diego coach to get their child into the college.At the center of the scheme was admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer, founder of the Edge College & Career Network of Newport Beach, California, authorities said. Singer pleaded guilty and his lawyer, Donald Heller, said his client intends to cooperate fully with prosecutors and is “remorseful and contrite and wants to move on with his life.”Prosecutors said that parents paid Singer big money from 2011 up until just last month to bribe coaches and administrators to falsely make their children look like star athletes to boost their chances of getting accepted.No students were charged, with authorities saying that in many cases the teenagers were unaware of what was going on. Several of the colleges involved made no mention of taking any action against the students.The colleges themselves are not targets, the prosecutor said. A number of the institutions moved quickly to fire or suspend the coaches and distance their name from the scandal, portraying themselves as victims. Stanford fired the sailing coach, and USC dropped its water polo coach and an athletic administrator. UCLA suspended its soccer coach, and Wake Forest did the same with its volleyball coach.Legal Analyst Jan Ronis discussed the scandal on Good Morning San Diego.

Twenty arrested in San Diego immigration sweeps

first_imgTwenty arrested in San Diego immigration sweeps July 13, 2019 KUSI Newsroom Posted: July 13, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Federal officers arrested 20 alleged criminal aliens and immigration violators in the San Diego area this week during a special enforcement sweep, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials reported today.The five-day crackdown, dubbed Operation Cross Check VII, focused on immigration fugitives with final removal orders and criminal convictions or charges against them, according to ICE public affairs.Among the arrestees, 85 percent had prior criminal convictions and/or prior criminal charges, the federal agency reported. Convictions for those arrested included drug crimes, weapons offenses, hit-and-run, intoxicated driving, theft, domestic violence, evading law enforcement and fraud, officials said.“We will continue to conduct similar operations while seeking to ultimately remove criminal aliens with a final order of removal and other immigration fugitives who pose a threat to public safety,” ICE Field Office Director Gregory Archambeault said.Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for the agency, said she could not comment on whether the sweep was part of a similar effort planned for this weekend across the nation. She did, however, note that this week’s local immigration- enforcement “surge” was of a type typically undertaken several times a year.ICE agents are expected to carry out raids across the country beginning Sunday, targeting an estimated 2,000 people who have been ordered deported. The sweeps are anticipated in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco.“They’re going to take criminals out and put them in prison or put them in prison in the countries they came from,” President Donald Trump told reporters this morning. “We’re focused on criminals as much as we can.”Trump’s deportation raids were decried by protesters who rallied at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in San Diego on Friday night, as news of the planned crackdown has sparked outrage among immigrant advocates who contend the moves are part of an effort to spark fear among immigrant families. They also argue that while raids may target criminals, other immigrants are often arrested during such actions. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Senate Finance Committee Unanimously Passes Russian Trade Bill

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) congratulates the Senate Finance Committee on its unanimous passage today of a draft bill that would establish permanent normal trade relations (PNTR) with Russia, the world’s sixth largest economy. ASA now encourages the Senate to take up the bill as quickly as possible, and calls on the House to move forward with a companion bill in order for the U.S. to capitalize on Russia’s accession package to the World Trade Organization (WTO). Importing more than $770 million in meat, poultry, egg and dairy products in 2011, Russia is an important market for the U.S. soy industry.”Today’s unanimous passage of the draft bill establishing PNTR with Russia is a very encouraging move by the Senate Finance Committee, and we congratulate Committee Chairman Baucus and Ranking Member Hatch on their work to solidify U.S. business opportunities abroad,” said ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean farmer from Syracuse, Neb. “The demand in Russia for poultry, pork, eggs, dairy products and other items that use soy inputs is already significant and continues to grow as the Russian economy grows. With today’s vote, the U.S. soy industry is one step closer to expanding an already beneficial and positive relationship with a valuable partner.”ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA’s advocacy efforts are made possible through the voluntary membership in ASA by more than 21,000 farmers in 31 states where soybeans are grown.###For more information contact:Steve Wellman, ASA President, 402-269-7024, wellmanfarms@sbllcweb.com Patrick Delaney, ASA Communications Director, 202-969-7040, pdelaney@soy.orglast_img read more

Skyjackers identity remains a mystery 40 years later

first_imgAs sure as the D.B. Cooper anniversary arrives each year, the small Southwest Washington community of Ariel will hold its annual celebration marking the infamous hijacking.This week’s 40th anniversary of the 1971 incident is no different. The Ariel Store, just off state Highway 503 near the Clark-Cowlitz county line, plans to host the daylong event starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, said Jack Elliott, son of store owner Donna Elliott.The gathering will include live music, food, drinks and raffle prizes, Jack Elliott said.

Cooper hijacked a plane flying between Portland and Seattle. He is believed to have then jumped out somewhere over Southwest Washington with $200,000 in cash. Only a fraction of the money was later recovered; the case remains the nation’s only unsolved commercial airplane hijacking.The Ariel Store is at 288 Merwin Village Road in Ariel.SEATTLE — It’s been a rich year for students of D.B.

Car crashes into Camas home

first_imgCAMAS — Aaron Fallin was relaxing to music on the couch Sunday afternoon when a motorist crashed into his home, pushing the back wall forward and sending a 65-inch television onto the floor just a foot from him.“I couldn’t believe what I saw,” Fallin said.“Our house just shook,” said Fallin’s wife, Rita, of their home at 3031 N.W. 47th Drive.The crash happened about 3:30 p.m. None of the six family members was hurt.The driver, Janice Dossett, 56, who lives about a mile way, also was not hurt.Aaron Fallin ran to the car but said, “There was no way to get her out because she was wedged into the house.”Neighbors also were trying to see if Dossett was OK. One man asked her to turn off the car’s ignition, fearing a possible fire.Dossett told police Officer Brent Mayhugh she said was OK, and a Camas medical crew responded and found she was not hurt. Her 2001 Oldsmobile Alero was towed.Camas Sgt. David Chaney said Dossett became distracted by something behind her, “took her eyes off the road and then crashed.” He said she was not driving while impaired.Her car veered off Leadbetter Drive in the Camas Meadows neighborhood, crashed through a back fence and into the rear wall of the house and its fireplace.

Automakers power ahead in February

first_imgDETROIT — Americans want new cars and trucks, and they’re not letting higher gas prices or political dysfunction stand in their way.New car and truck sales were up 4 percent in February as rising home construction and cheap financing kept the U.S. auto recovery on track. While the pace of growth is slowing, industry analysts expect more gains in the coming months, saying there’s little that could derail demand for new automobiles.Buyers have already shrugged off higher Social Security taxes, which cut their take-home pay starting in January. Gas prices — which rose 36 cents to a $3.78 per gallon nationwide average in February — didn’t change their habits either. And they ignored the debate over automatic spending cuts that took effect Friday.“Quite frankly, we think most of America is getting a little tired of hearing about some of the dysfunction,” said Kurt McNeil, General Motors Co.’s U.S. sales chief. “We think the fundamentals are strong, and that’s what’s important, and that’s what’s driving the economy.”February sales hit an annualized rate of 15.4 million cars and trucks. That’s still short of the recent peak of close to 17 million in 2005, but it’s quite healthy compared with the anemic 10.4 million recorded in 2009.The industry isn’t likely to see the double-digit monthly gains it saw in the past year, when Japanese automakers came roaring back after the 2011 earthquake in Japan. Instead, auto companies are settling in for slower-but-sustained growth.last_img read more

Genting Malaysia declares 3Q18 loss due to US tribal investment impairment

first_img Load More In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, Genting Malaysia said the substantial loss was due to the uncertainty of recovery of the group’s investment after the DOI’s decision concluding that the Tribe did not satisfy the conditions under the Indian Reorganization Act that allow the Tribe to have the land in trust for an integrated gaming resort development.“However, the group continues to work closely with the Tribe on options which include a legislation being introduced in the US Congress which, if passed, will entail the US Federal Government to reaffirm the land in trust for the benefit of the Tribe,” the company said. “The impairment loss can be reversed when the promissory notes are assessed to be recoverable.”More positive was the performance of the company‘s flagship Resorts World Genting property, which saw 3Q18 revenue jump 26% to MYR1.7 billion and Adjusted EBITDA grow 91% to MYR641.2 million.The increase was primarily due to strength in the mass market segment following the opening of new facilities and attractions under the Genting Integrated Tourism Plan (GITP), with 6.4 million people visiting the property during the quarter.Resorts World Genting also enjoyed higher hold in the VIP segment, Genting Malaysia said.Operations at Genting Malaysia’s UK and Egypt properties declined by 2% for the period to MYR505.7 million, with Adjusted EBITDA up 12% to MYR60.2 million.Genting Malaysia added that it doesn’t expect a US$1 billion lawsuit launched late last month against Walt Disney Co and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc for allegedly reneging on a contract to build a Fox theme park at Resorts World Genting to impact the group’s current business operations.

Former BT employee is entitled to sick pay

first_imgThe Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has upheld a case ruling concerning a BT Managed Services Limited (BTMS) employee who has been receiving income protection payments (GIPs) that ceased to be insured, and who is unlikely to ever return to work.In the case of BT Managed Services Ltd v Edwards & Anor, it was found that Edwards was not assigned to an organised grouping when he transferred employment from Orange to BTMS, and then to Ericsson.The claimant, Mr Edwards, was employed by BTMS as a Field Operations Engineer as part of the domestic network outsource (DNO) team. From April 1994, he was employed by Orange but his employment transferred to BT from July 2009.Each team he worked with had a separate and dedicated structure within BTMS, including its own budget and contract with Edwards.In May 2006, Mr Edwards commenced long-term sick leave for illnesses that included a cardiac condition that prevented him from performing strenuous activities. Attempts were made to provide him with less strenuous work. However, these were unsuccessful, so he was regarded as permanently incapacitated from this time onwards.Edwards last worked for BTMS in January 2008, but because he remained an employee of the organisation, he continued to receive GIPs. These were treated as an expense to the organisation after the insurer’s liability ended.In December 2012, Edwards’ contract was transferred to Ericsson, and a service provision change took place in June 2013.BT launched an appeal on the grounds that Edwards has not contributed to the organisation since May 2006, so he should not be entitled to GIPs from the organisation.This appeal was dismissed by the EAT, which found that Edwards should not have been carried over with the other BT employees when he was moved onto a new contract, paticularly because it was unlikely he would ever work for the organisation again.Jo Broadbent, professional support lawyer at law firm Hogan Lovells, said: “The aspect to consider is that Edwards was originally contracted to another provider (Ericsson), which brings up the question of whether he should have been carried over as an employee or, in effect, left behind. The EAT decided that Edwards should not have been carried over to the new contract as there was no prospect of him working for the organisaton again.”last_img read more
