Gov. Chris Christie Bans ‘Weight Reduction Therapy’

Read Time:1 Minute, 33 Second
TRENTON, NJ (CAP) – New Jersey became the first state to ban so-called weight reduction therapy yesterday when Gov. Chris Christie signed into law a bill to prohibit the controversial practice and then ate the legislation.
 
"It was actually a mimeographed copy as a symbolic gesture," Christie told the stunned reporters who were thumbing through law books to see if the governor had nullified his new law by ingesting it. "Mimeo ink tastes a lot like blue raspberry."
 
Methods for weight reduction therapy involve everything from diet and exercise to pills and herbal remedies to fat farms and nutritional counseling. The New Jersey law prevents parents from forcing their young heffers to partake in any of those activities prior to the age of 18.
 
"Gov. Christie has always believed that people are born with the predisposition to be fat," said one aide who has gained 21 pounds since Christie implemented Free Donut Fridays at the state house last fall. "Who are we to fight nature?"
 
Christie, who has long battled weight problems and an insatiable appetite for anything edible that passes within five feet of his person, is widely considered a likely 2016 presidential contender and the Republican party's best chance to unseat Howard Taft as the country's most overweight president.
 
"As President Taft once said, He who depraves a man of his danish, depraves that man of his Democracy," Christie pointed out. "I think he was stuck in the White House bathtub when he said it."
 
The new law comes on the heels of Christie also banning gay conversion therapy which prohibits licensed therapists from trying to convert gay Republicans into Democrats "in order to keep the GOP untainted."

Bradley Manning’s 35-year sentence is a halfway house

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 37 Second
It will be little consolation to the slight, young soldier whose face didn't flicker as sentence was passed, but the judge went for a halfway house – 35 years in prison. Not the 60 years demanded by the prosecution, nearer the 25 asked for by the defence.
 
Although Pte First Class Bradley Manning's supporters are angry at his treatment – and the US military seemed determined to make an example of him – the case hasn't excited great public passion.
 
But President Barack Obama has a dilemma- how to portray and treat a new breed of spillers of secrets.
 
These are not traitors motivated by money or an ideological sympathy with the enemy, but leakers driven by a conviction that information should be free, that secrecy itself is evil.
 
Although Pte Manning's leaking was profligate, and Edward Snowden far more focused on alleged wrongdoing, the back story is the same – a cultural clash.
 
What happens when men imbued with the almost romantic concept of a high-tech world where information flows freely work in a world where secrecy is an assumed virtue?
 
But this case also raises another glaring question – how could such a junior soldier get his hands on so much secret information, with apparently such ease?
 
The answer is in part the backwash after the destruction of the Twin Towers. One of the lessons learnt was the danger of high, artificial walls between the USA's many intelligence and security agencies – they simply couldn't join the dots because they didn't know the whole picture.
 
But lowering those walls has meant the whole world now has that information as well.
 
President Obama doesn't want to appear the heavy-handed enemy of free information, but the glare of light on what has been kept in the dark has alarmed the administration.

Porn industry shuts down with immediate effect after ‘female performer’ tests positive for HIV

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 9 Second
The adult film industry in San Fernando Valley in California, announced a moratorium on the making of porn films Wednesday after an actor tested positive for HIV.
The performer was not immediately identified and officials didn't say when the positive test was recorded.
The actor's sex partners are currently being tested by doctors with Adult Production Health and Safety Services, which works with the porn industry.
X-Biz, an adult industry trade magazine, reported that the performer with the HIV-positive test is female and new to the industry says the Los Angeles Daily News.
 
'The moratorium will be lifted once the risk of transmission has been eliminated,' Diane Duke, executive director of the industry trade group the Free Speech Coalition, told the Associated Press in an e-mail.
She added that the actor is not believed to have been infected on a film set.
 
'In fact, since 2004 there have only been two cases of performers testing positive for HIV and neither of those situations involved on-set transmission,' Duke said. 
'The current situation would bring the number to three cases in nearly 10 years, not just in Los Angeles but nationwide.'
 
The industry briefly put a similar moratorium in place last year after nearly a dozen performers were infected during a syphilis outbreak.
Word of the latest moratorium quickly drew critical responses from porn industry opponents. Among them was Michael Weinstein, whose group the AIDS Healthcare Foundation successfully lobbied voters last year to adopt an ordinance requiring actors use condoms in the making of most porn films.
'How many adult film performers have to become infected with an array of preventable sexually transmitted diseases — including HIV, which is not curable — before the porn industry actually complies with the law requiring condom use,' he said in a statement.
Since the ordinance's adoption, county officials have said they are investigating one violation.
Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, who is pushing for the state to adopt a similar law, called Wednesday's news 'devastating and preventable.'
'Exposing workers to this type of harm would not be accepted in any other industry in this nation,' the Los Angeles Democrat said.
The industry, which says its audience does not want to see condoms, is fighting the Los Angeles County measure in court.
 
After a federal judge ruled last week that the measure is constitutional industry officials promised to appeal.
Last year, porn star Mr. Marcus, 42, was discovered to have altered his positive syphilis test so that he could keep performing.
The porn industry imposed a 10-day moratorium in August while actors were treated and tested for the potentially lethal disease.
And in June of this year, Mr. Marcus was convicted of knowingly exposing two co-stars to syphilis and sentenced to 30 days in jail.
And in June 2004, the entire porn industry in California shut down after 4 performers tested positive for HIV, which caused 50 performers to be tested because of possible exposure.
 
Since that low-point, the adult industry has worked to self-regulate and increase testing procedures for stars.
And on Friday, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson denied the motion by the adult film industry to stop the imposition of condoms being worn during filming.
Pregerson said that data from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health provided evidence that wearing condoms was a matter of health and did not violate the First Amendment.
The data found that since 2004, the health department got reports of 2,396 cases of chlamydia, 1,389 cases of gonorrhea, and in addition, five syphilis cases among adult film performers.

Nurse gets 12 years in patient hit man plot

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 32 Second
CLEVELAND (AP) — A former Cleveland Clinic nurse was sentenced to 12 years in prison Wednesday for trying to hire an emergency room patient as a hit man.
 
Andrew Martin offered $10,000 to an ER patient to kill a woman in a dispute over ownership of her deceased brother's home, authorities said. The patient tipped off police that he had been asked by a nurse if he "ever killed anyone," investigators said.
 
Martin, of Bristolville, about 50 miles east of Cleveland, earlier pleaded guilty to orchestrating the murder-for-hire plot. He had faced a seven- to nine-year term under federal sentencing guidelines. He also was ordered to pay more than $83,000 in restitution.
 
His attorney, Edward LaRue, did not immediately return a request for comment.
 
Martin admitted in April to using a phone to further the plot and also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and trying to obtain private medical records.
 
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that during Wednesday's hearing, Martin said he couldn't recognize his voice in a secretly recorded wire-tap that prosecutors played in which Martin could be heard talking to the supposed hit man, but U.S. District Judge Christopher Boyko countered Martin's argument.
 
"Yes, that was you, the darker side of Andrew Martin, but that was you," Boyko said. "Thank God no one was hurt or killed, but it wasn't for lack of effort."
 
Martin was arrested in November. The Cleveland Clinic quickly parted ways with him.
 
Prosecutors said Martin and another man began plotting in October 2011 to take ownership of a home that had belonged to an elderly former patient at the hospital where Martin worked. The patient died in late 2010.
 
Martin, 23, used his position there to access the patient's medical records so the other man could claim to have had a personal relationship with him, prosecutors said. They created a fake deed and claimed ownership of the ex-patient's home, prosecutors said.
 
A yearlong ownership fight began in probate court. A judge eventually sided with the administrator of the former owner's estate and voided a backdated deed.
 
Irritated that "this 70-year-old lady … has been trying to mess up my life," Martin approached an ER patient who "looked like a big guy," according to the federal affidavit.
 
"Ever hurt anyone?" Martin allegedly asked the man, whose name wasn't disclosed.
 
"Yes, no, maybe," the ER patient responded cautiously, according to the affidavit.
 
Martin pressed ahead, according to the affidavit, asking, "Ever killed anyone?"
 
"I shot someone in the leg once," the patient responded.
 
Martin offered him $10,000 to kill the woman, authorities said. He also described her and her car and provided where she lived, prosecutors said.

Read Time:42 Second
LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — NASA says former space shuttle astronaut and test pilot C. Gordon Fullerton has died at age 76.
 
A NASA statement says Fullerton died Wednesday after spending most of the past 3 ½ years in a care facility in Lancaster, Calif., following a 2009 stroke.
 
Fullerton spent 382 hours in space on two space shuttle missions during his career as an astronaut from 1969 to 1986. He was also a member of one of two crews that flew the shuttle prototype Enterprise on approach and landing tests in 1977.
 
Fullerton later spent 22 years as a test pilot on projects at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base.
 
The Portland, Ore., native joined the Air Force in 1958 and flew fighters and bombers before becoming a test pilot.

NSA collected thousands of e-mails by Americans

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 26 Second
WASHINGTON — The nation's top intelligence official on Wednesday declassified three secret U.S. court opinions and other classified documents that reveal how the National Security Agency intercepted thousands of e-mails from Americans with no connection to terrorism.
 
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper authorized the release and the agency published the documents on a newly created Tumblr page dubbed IC on the Record.
 
The latest revelations come amid growing criticism from members of Congress and privacy groups about the NSA surveillance programs and charges that the agency has far overstepped its bounds in collecting information on U.S. citizens. There are already bipartisan efforts in Congress to rein in the programs and increase oversight of the intelligence agencies.
 
The declassification of documents also follows President Obama's call on Clapper in June to release more information about U.S. surveillance programs in response to public outcry, triggered by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden's leaking of details of previously secret intelligence gathering programs.
 
Some of the documents shine a harsh light on how the NSA operated.
 
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, authorized to oversee surveillance requests, first learned in 2011 of problems involving "upstream collection" that led to the intelligence community unlawfully scooping up thousands of emails from U.S. accounts over a three-year period. One opinion shows that the NSA reported to the FISA court in 2011 that it inadvertently collected as many as 56,000 Internet communications by Americans with no connection to terrorism.
 
In the strongly worded 86-page opinion, U.S. District Judge John Bates, who was then the court's chief judge, wrote that the "volume and nature of the information it has been collecting is fundamentally different from what the court had been led to believe."
 
Bates blasted the NSA for mishandling thousands of e-mails from Americans over those three years, and said the NSA's disclosures about its e-mail collection effort "fundamentally alters the court's understanding of the scope of the collection … and requires careful re-examination of many of the assessments and presumptions underlying prior approvals.''
 
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said the latest revelation underscores the need for greater oversight of the intelligence community. Blumenthal has proposed legislation calling for a special advocate to represent the public's interest in the secret FISA court proceedings.
 
"Now, the question is how many other such unconstitutional practices occurred without the court knowing, and without a special advocate to blow the whistle?" Blumenthal said. "This highly intrusive breach highlights the need for reforming the FISA court system to assure greater respect for constitutional rights, and to ensure that the American people have faith and trust in the institutions charged with keeping us safe."

Businesswoman says San Diego mayor groped her

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 14 Second
SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego businesswoman is the latest woman to publicly accuse Mayor Bob Filner of making unwanted sexual advances.
 
Dianne York said in a news conference in National City on Wednesday that Filner placed his hand on her buttocks while she posed for a photo with him after a meeting at his office about three months ago.
 
York first told her story to CNN.
 
She says she has reported the incident to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
 
At least 17 women have publicly accused Filner of behaving inappropriately toward them.
 
The latest accusation comes as Filner's fate hangs in limb with no resolution over a sexual harassment lawsuit that threatens to oust the 70-year-old former congressman.
 
A petition drive to recall Filner was in full swing, and calls from his own party urging him to step down were mounting with the Democratic National Committee planning to vote on a resolution Friday. The measure would formalize a plea to Filner to leave office and also would condemn anyone who creates a hostile workplace or sexually harasses women or men.
 
Filner has been besieged by sexual harassment allegations from more than a dozen women.
 
Settlement talks were set to resume for a third day. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith hinted at the end of Tuesday's all-day session of mediation that it could take time.
 
"Mediation can be a long process — we are in that process," he told reporters waiting outside the downtown office building.
 
It was unclear whether Filner's potential resignation was being discussed as part of the bargaining.
 
Carl Luna, a political science professor at Mesa College, said Filner may be still fighting to stay in office or he may be trying to negotiate a deal that would limit his financial liability in the lawsuit if he agrees to resign.
 
"Oddly enough the person holding the most cards is Bob Filner, because he's the one in position to end all this," Luna said.
 
Those at the negotiating table say they have been told not to comment while the talks are ongoing. Filner has been attending the talks along with Goldsmith, City Council President Todd Gloria and Councilman Kevin Faulconer.
 
Gloria would serve as acting mayor if Filner resigns.
 
Attorney Gloria Allred and her client, Irene McCormack Jackson, attended the first day of talks and were in communication but not physically present with the parties on Tuesday.
 
Filner's former communications director, McCormack, as she is known professionally, was the first to go public with allegations against him. Other accusers include a university dean and a retired Navy rear admiral. Some contend he cornered, groped and forcibly kissed them.
 
Filner announced three weeks ago that he would undergo therapy after acknowledging he has disrespected and intimidated women. He has denied committing sexual harassment.
 
Questions also have been raised over Filner's spending and a trip to Paris. He is being investigated over the various issues by the city attorney's office, state attorney general's office, Sheriff's Department and U.S. attorney.
 
Before going into therapy, Filner said when he returns his focus "will be on making sure that I am doing right by the city in terms of being the best mayor I can be." He has not issued a statement since returning.
 
Recall organizers must collect 101,597 signatures of registered San Diego voters by Sept. 26. If the petition has fewer than that, the recall campaign will have 30 more days to gather additional valid signatures.
 
If enough signatures are validated, the City Council must schedule an election within 60 to 90 days.

Arias lawyers want Twitter accounts of new jurors

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 43 Second
PHOENIX (AP) — Jodi Arias' attorneys want a judge to allow them to monitor the Twitter accounts of the jury seated in her murder trial to be certain jurors aren't communicating details about the case on social media.
 
Arias was convicted of first-degree murder May 8 in the 2008 death of boyfriend Travis Alexander in his suburban Phoenix home, but the same jury failed to reach a decision on her sentence. Her case is now in limbo as prosecutors decide whether to seat a new jury in pursuit of the death penalty.
 
While neither side has publicly discussed any negotiations toward a plea deal, the motion filed Wednesday indicates the parties are on a path toward a second trial as her attorneys wrote in a motion Wednesday that Arias will "endeavor to paint a complete picture" of who she is and why she deserves a sentence of life."
 
Attorneys Kirk Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott want the court to compel all jurors eventually seated for the second penalty phase to provide their Twitter accounts and handles if they use the site.
 
They note the details would serve as a "crucial tool with which Ms. Arias can work to ensure that her jury are either not communicating about the case via Twitter or considering information that was sent to them via Twitter as opposed to what is presented to them in court."
 
The attorneys argue that without the ability to monitor their accounts, there would be no way of knowing whether jurors are communicating or receiving information about the case.
 
Jurors already are warned to avoid media coverage during the proceedings, and not to discuss the case with anyone until they have been dismissed.
 
"If every juror were to understand and follow this warning … there would be no issue with a juror choosing to 'tweet' information about the case," the attorneys wrote. "However, even a juror that follows this admonition could still receive a tweet containing extraneous information."
 
The Arias case prompted a frenzy of activity on Twitter since she went on trial in January. With the trial streamed live on the Internet around the world, Twitter users communicated with each other and journalists and TV personalities covering the case. Arias herself was believed to be Tweeting during the trial through a third party.
 
Arias' attorneys say that after the jury in her first penalty phase failed to reach a decision, they learned that an alternate had communicated via Twitter with a journalist, explaining that she was allowed to use social media during the trial, but just couldn't discuss the case. The lawyers also wrote that the alternate juror had a conversation on Facebook during which someone else commented about Arias' temper.
 
Prosecutors had not yet filed a response to the motion and declined comment on Wednesday. A hearing is set for Monday.
 
Arias, 33, admitted she killed Alexander, but claimed it was self-defense. Prosecutors argued it was premeditated murder carried out in a jealous rage after the victim wanted to end their affair and planned a trip to Mexico with another woman.

Dramatic 911 call in Ga. school shooting incident released

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 20 Second
DECATUR, Ga. — The man accused of opening fire in an Atlanta-area elementary school had 500 rounds of ammunition when he was arrested after a shootout with police, authorities said Wednesday.
 
In a 911 tape released Wednesday, the school bookkeeper talking to Michael Brandon Hill during the incident relayed to emergency dispatchers that the suspect said he was off his medications and thought he should have gone to a mental hospital.
 
Antoinette Tuff spoke to the 20-year-old Hill and told dispatchers that Hill said he had nothing to live for and wanted police to call the DeKalb County probation office.
 
WXIA-TV reported that the public defender for Hill waived his first appearance in DeKalb Magistrate Court on Wednesday.
 
Authorities were still trying to determine why Hill fired at least six shots with an assault rifle at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy on Tuesday. Police returned fire; no one was injured.
 
School bookkeeper Antoinette Tuff was being credited with calming the gunman down and convincing him to surrender. She told ABC News that Hill told her he had recently stopped taking medication. She said he added that he was going to die — along with police officers.
 
Investigator T.L. Wortham of the DeKalb County Sheriff Department's Fugitive Unit told WSB-TV that as officers were apprehending the suspect, he said, "I'm sorry, I'm off my meds." Several weapons were seized, Wortham said.
 
Hill will face charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, terroristic threats and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
 
The suspect was arrested early this year for threatening to kill his brother. A police report from Henry County Police shows that he was taken into custody on Mar. 13 and charged with terroristic threats.
 
Hill's brother, Timothy Hill, told police in late December 2012 that the suspect sent him a Facebook message saying "that he would shoot him in the head and not think twice about it," according to the police report.
 
Timothy Hill, 22, told ABC News on Wednesday that the suspect has "long history of medical disorders" including bipolar disorder, and was bound to "do something stupid." Hill said he's not close to his brother and that Michael Hill was taking drugs for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder as early as age 6.
 
"I had a feeling he was going to eventually, one day, do something stupid, but not of this magnitude," he told ABC News.
 
The elementary school of 870 students up to fifth grade is named for an astronaut who died aboard Challenger, the space shuttle that exploded after takeoff in 1986. Students returned to classes Wednesday, but they were held at a nearby high school.
 
DeKalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander said the McNair school has a system requiring visitors to be cleared and buzzed in, and the gunman gained entry by slipping in behind someone authorized to enter. He said the man did not get past the school's main office.
 
School employee Tuff said she worked to convince the gunman to put down his weapons and ammunition.
 
"He told me he was sorry for what he was doing. He was willing to die," Tuff said in an interview on ABC's World News with Diane Sawyer.
 
She said she told him her life story, including about the end of her marriage after 33 years.
 
"I told him, 'OK, we all have situations in our lives,'" she said. "It was going to be OK. If I could recover, he could, too."
 
Tuff said she asked the suspect to put his weapons and backpack down.
 
"I told the police he was giving himself up. I just talked him through it," she said.

Police: Letter attacking autistic boy not a hate crime

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 57 Second
Canadian prosecutors say a scathing letter calling on a family to "move or euthanize" their autistic teenage son does not constitute a hate crime, but Ontario police are considering other charges.
 
"Despite the hateful language used, the Crown Attorney's office has advised that the content of the letter falls below the threshold for a hate crime," the Durham Regional Police Service said.
 
Spokesman David Selby told the The Globe and Mail that although the letter does not meet the "high standards" required under the criminal code, "it doesn't mean we're not taking this very seriously."
 
"It's obviously a disturbing letter, and we have a number of people working on the case," he said.
 
The department has not said whether the letter writer has been identified.
 
The anonymous screed was delivered last week to Brenda Millson's home in Newcastle, east of Toronto. The author — who signed off as "One pissed off mother!" — railed against Millson's 13-year-old grandson, Maxwell Begley, who regularly spends time at her house in the summer.
 
The typed letter complained about a "whaling" noise the boy makes while outside. "It scares the hell out of my normal children!!!!!!!" the writer said. "Go live in a trailer in the woods or something with your wild animal kid!!!"
 
"Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!!! Either way, we are ALL better off!!!" the letter stated.
 
Max's family has been overwhelmed with support from friends, neighbors and strangers since the letter went viral. His mother and grandmother haven't been able to keep up with the well-wishers.
 
"I haven't even had the chance to call good friends, but it's great that they're thinking of me," Karla Begley, of nearby Oshawa, told the Toronto Star.
 
"At least Max can go to my mom's now and if kids know he's there they will come and see him," she added. "He would love nothing more, that's all he's ever wanted, you know?"
