Image inside Jul 15 - What Should We Make of Katt Williams Emmy Nomination in the #MeToo Moment?

3 people viewing this

| By phantomnation - 15 hours ago


In the premiere of Atlanta’s second season, Katt Williams makes his first appearance on television in more than 10 years, appearing as Uncle Willy, or rather, the “Alligator Man.” When Earn (played by series creator Donald Glover) arrives at Uncle Willy’s house, the man we see is a far cry from the persona of Williams’ stand-up sets in the early 2000s, bouncing around the stage in flamboyant, brightly colored suits, his permed hair dripping in sweat, advising black people how to deal with their white friends and other essential bits of wisdom.


No, the Williams we meet on Atlanta is an angry man in a bathrobe with a cigarette in hand, arguing with his girlfriend, who he has trapped in their bedroom. As absurd as it sounds, Williams delivers a performance here that is as touching as it is bizarre, leaning into his comedic strengths to portray a man burdened by his own big ego, whose erratic behavior has pushed away his loved ones. (Did I mention he has a pet alligator, earning him the name?) It’s clear the character’s life took a path he didn’t expect, serving as a cautionary tale to Earn. The performance garnered Williams some rightful praise and, as of Thursday, his first Emmy nomination.

But on a closer look, there are some uncomfortable parallels between Uncle Willy and the actor who played him. In 2016, a young actress sued Williams for allegedly orchestrating a physical assault on her, a claim eventually settled out of court, just one of a string of violent incidents that Williams has been associated with. That same year, he got in a fight with a teenage boy, which was caught on a video that made the rounds online, and surveillance footage of him slapping a Target employee also surfaced. Williams was arrested for throwing a salt shaker at a restaurant employee in Atlanta and arrested again on suspicion of battery for allegedly attacking a female employee of a restaurant in California.


The #MeToo movement has forced the industry to take another look at the powerful men who receive accolades even as they exercise that power by abusing the people—mostly the women—around them. And the resounding cry from some of the biggest names in Hollywood is that a change is needed. Williams is far from an industry heavy-hitter, but a role on a popular show like Atlanta brings him back into the cultural conversation in a different way, and the Emmy nomination is evidence of that. Does a strong performance earn an actor a pass from having to explain past bad behavior? I thought we had already answered that question with Kevin Spacey, who was dropped from House of Cards after Anthony Rapp and others accused him of sexual misconduct, but apparently we have not.

So in the case of Williams and his Emmy nomination, who bears the responsibility for giving a man with such a troubled history a platform for acclaim? Is it on the Television Academy for actually giving him that recognition? Is it on the studio executives that put him up for consideration for the award? (Notably, CBS did not submit the Kevin Spacey-hosted Tony Awards for consideration, for obvious reasons.) Or is it on Atlanta’s creators and the casting directors, who chose someone with a history like Williams’ for the role in the first place?


There have been a lot of moves to hold men accountable in Hollywood, some symbolic, like the stars wearing all black in protest at the Golden Globes, and other more material ones, like the Time’s Up legal defense fund, which helps women who have experienced abuse, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace pay for legal representation. But not every man being accused is as powerful as someone like Harvey Weinstein, and not every alleged victim works in the industry. Where do we draw the line?

Jul 14 - McDonalds has an outbreak of cyclospora linked to salads

3 people viewing this

Quote:

CNN) — An outbreak of cyclospora linked to McDonald's salads has sickened at least 61 people in seven states, federal health officials said Friday.

The Food and Drug Administration is working with McDonald's to identify the salad ingredients making people sick and trace them through the supply chain.

As a precaution, McDonald's has stopped selling the salads in 3,000 fast food restaurants in 14 states to try to contain the outbreak, the FDA said.

The states are Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota, Kentucky, West Virginia and Missouri.


"It's early in the investigation, but we are taking steps now to help ensure consumers know about the potentially contaminated product so that they can better protect themselves or seek treatment, especially if they have signs or symptoms of a cyclospora infection," FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said in a statement.

Earlier this week, the Illinois and Iowa health departments said they were investigating outbreaks of a parasite that causes intestinal illness and might be linked to McDonald's salads.

Illinois and Iowa among hardest-hit

Illinois reported 90 cases since mid-May while Iowa had 15 cases since late June. It's unclear why their numbers are higher than those provided by federal officials.

The cyclospora parasite causes intestinal illness as a result of consuming contaminated food or water.

The symptoms, which can begin a week or more after consuming the parasite, include diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive bowel movements, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Those infected can experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue. Vomiting, headache, fever, body aches and flu-like symptoms can also occur.


The illness can last from a few days to a few months and patients might feel better, then get worse again. Patients can be treated with antibiotics.
Other parasite outbreaks

In an email, McDonald's said it's working with officials in the affected states.
"Out of an abundance of caution, we decided to voluntarily stop selling salads at impacted restaurants until we can switch to another lettuce blend supplier," the email said.

"We are in the process of removing existing salad blend from identified restaurants and distribution centers -- which includes approximately 3,000 of our US restaurants primarily located in the Midwest."

Cyclospora is also behind an ongoing outbreak linked to recalled Del Monte Fresh vegetable trays; believed to be responsible for more than 200 illnesses in four states.

The parasite is also to blame for an outbreak in Texas, although officials have not yet identified what's making people sick there.

There was an ecoli outbreak with lettuce couple months ago

Jul 13 - Artists create "F--k Trump" crop circle in UK

3 people viewing this

| By phantomnation - 22 hours ago


An English marketing agency reportedly created a crop circle with an explicit message to President Trump along his helicopter path during his visit to the United Kingdom this week.

The crop circle features the phrase "F--- Trump" in Russian, a knock on Trump's friendly attitude toward Russian President Vladimir Putin, as well as the probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The owner of the Moat Farm in Stoke Mandeville told the local newspaper, The Bucks Herald, on Tuesday that he was approached because of his land.

The farm is situated along Trump's helicopter route from London to Chequers, the newspaper reported.

"They were specifically looking for one in the flight path that Donald Trump will take when he comes to the UK this week," the farm's owner said.

Marketing agency The Tenth Man reportedly came forward on Thursday to take credit for the prank with the help of artists at Circlemakers.

"We wanted to do something impactful that would get people talking ahead of Trump's arrival, and everyone loves a crop circle mystery," a spokesperson told the newspaper.



The circle appeared on Sunday after 14 hours of labor and is more than 650 feet wide, according to The Bucks Herald.

"It's almost as big as Donald Trump's ego so we're pretty confident he'll see it," the Tenth Man spokesperson said.

The farmer said he wasn't motivated to allow the crop circle on his farm because of his political feelings about the American president.


He insisted that his thoughts on Trump are neutral.

"There was a financial transaction, I won't say how much but it was renumeration for the damaged crops, which won't be salvageable," the owner said.

Nearly 90,000 people are planning to protest Trump's visit to the U.K. for a working visit with Prime Minister Theresa May.

His schedule will keep him in more rural areas, including Chequers, to potentially avoid the large-scale protests planned in London.

Among the planned demonstration is a large "Trump baby" blimp, approved by London city officials to fly over the Parliament building.

The 2004 Green Day hit song "American Idiot" has also once again climbed to the top of the U.K.'s music charts ahead of Trump's visit.

| By Sin - 2 days ago


ALBION, N.Y. — Police say a 17-year-old western New York boy broke into his grandmother’s house and stabbed her while she was sleeping.

The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office says Albion resident Brandon Foster went into his grandmother’s house through a window just before midnight Sunday. Police say Foster then went into her bedroom and stabbed her while she slept.

She fought him off and was able to get away. Officials say Foster stole $23 and his grandmother’s phone before fleeing. He was found at about 6 a.m. Monday and charged with attempted murder and first-degree assault.

The grandmother is recovering at a hospital.

Authorities say mental health issues and a previous confrontation between the two may have played a role in the attack.

The teen is being held in the county jail. The name of his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

Image inside Jul 14 - Amazons share of the US e-commerce market is now 49%, or 5% of all retail spend

3 people viewing this

| By 00010111 - 2 days ago



Amazon has already been in the crosshairs of the White House when it comes to threats of antitrust investigations, and while some say this is simply Trumpian bluster that has a slim chance of going anywhere, some new numbers out from the researchers at eMarketer could prove to be a fan to the flames.

Amazon is set to clear $258.22 billion in US retail sales in 2018, according to eMarketer’s figures, which will work out to 49.1 percent of all online retail spend in the country, and 5 percent of all retail sales.

It started as an online bookstore, but today Amazon is a behemoth in all areas of e-commerce, fuelled by a strong Marketplace network of third-party sellers, an ever-expanding range of goods from groceries to fashion, and a very popular loyalty program in the form of Prime.

Now, it is fast approaching a tipping point where more people will be spending money online with Amazon, than with all other retailers — combined. Amazon’s next-closest competitor, eBay, a very, very distant second at 6.6 percent, and Apple in third at 3.9 percent. Walmart, the world’s biggest retailer when counting physical stores, has yet to really hit the right note in e-commerce and comes in behind Apple with 3.7 percent of online sales in the US.



The figures — which eMarketer says are estimates “based on an analysis of quantitative and qualitative data from research firms, government agencies, media firms and public companies, plus interviews with top executives at publishers, ad buyers and agencies” — are also remarkable not because of their size, but because of Amazon’s pace has not slowed down. Its sales are up 29.2 percent versus a year ago, when it commanded 43 percent of all e-commerce retail sales.

The rocket ship for Amazon’s growth at the moment is its Marketplace — the platform where Amazon allows third-party sellers to use its retail and (if they choose) logistics infrastructure to sell and deliver items to Amazon shoppers. It’s currently accounting for 68 percent of all retail sales, working out to nearly $176 billion, versus 32 percent for Amazon’s direct sales, and eMarketer projects that by the end of this year, Marketplace’s share will be more than double that of Amazon’s own sales (it’s already about double).

In terms of popular categories, consumer electronics and tech continue to be the leading product category: eMarketer projects sales of $65.82 billion, around one-fourth of all turnover. Second will be apparel and accessories, which will pull in $39.88 billion of sales. Third in 2018 are health, personal care and beauty with $16 billion. Fourth is food and beverage at a distant $4.75 billion.

In tech, it has its Kindles and Fire tablets, Fire TV, and of course its huge hit Alexa-powered Echo devices, among many other products. Apparel is being pushed heavily in the company’s private-label efforts. Amazon just the other week announced that it was acquiring online drug seller PillPack for $1 billion, which will be a major lever in its wider health products and services strategy. And lastly, there is Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods and its much wider play around meal kits and its server-free physical shops. The physical aspect, eMarketer believes, will play a strong role in Amazon’s growth in this category.

“Amazon’s strategy for food and beverage is no different, in some respects, than it was for books—dominate the category,” eMarketer senior analyst Patricia Orsini notes in the report. “However, e-commerce in the grocery sector is a challenge. Share of online sales in this category is low because most people, for a host of reasons, prefer to buy food in brick-and-mortar stores. Amazon has an advantage because its shopper base is comfortable with shopping online. Along with insights gathered about Whole Foods shoppers, Amazon probably has the best chance of converting in-store grocery buyers to online grocery buyers.”

All of these will not just boost Amazon’s own direct sales but help create an environment for people to come to Amazon to buy either these at price-busting rates, or other-brand alternatives.



So far, people think that it is unlikely that Amazon would stand an antitrust investigation because e-commerce is still a small part of all commerce (as evidenced by the five percent of all retail sales figure), and Amazon would argue that in the world of “omnicommerce” it’s still just a bit player. However, Amazon’s dominance is clear when considering e-commerce alone.

Jul 13 - JPMorgan Chase Makes $8.3 Billion Profit in One Quarter

3 people viewing this

| By DERRTY CHYBO - 2 days ago

JPMorgan Chase continues to benefit from a US economy that's still humming along.

\The giant bank reported a profit of $8.3 billion for the second quarter Friday, an increase of 18% from a year ago and not far off from JPMorgan's record quarterly profit of $8.7 billion in the first quarter.

American banks have gotten a boost from this year's tax cuts.

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon said in a statement that "the healthy US consumer" helped drive big gains in its credit card and money management businesses. Deposits grew at a solid clip as well.

Dimon also said that JPMorgan posted record fees in its global investment banking unit in the first half of the year, thanks to a boom in trading revenue, mergers and IPOs.

"We see good global economic growth, particularly in the US, where consumer and business sentiment is high," Dimon said.

Dimon continued to defend Corporate America's use of tax savings to increase dividends and buy back more stock, moves that some have criticized as helping wealthier investors but not average consumers on Main Street.

Dimon told reporters last month that people who bashed buybacks were "basically ignorant."

Related: Tax cut triggers $437 billion explosion of stock buybacks

In a response to a question about those remarks from CNNMoney during a conference call with reporters Friday, Dimon said it was normal for companies to "recycle capital" and put it to better use. He said that eventually will benefit the broader economy. Dimon pointed out that wages are going up and the unemployment rate is going down.

During the conference call with reporters, chief financial officer Marianne Lake added that the bank is still optimistic despite uncertainty surrounding tariffs and increased trade tensions between the United States and China, Europe, Canada and other big global economies. Lake said there has been "no meaningful impact on demand" so far for corporate loans.

But Dimon added that there can be "unpredictable outcomes" when there are multiple skirmishes on the trade front. He said he was hopeful that the trade issues will ultimately be resolved through negotiations.

A trade war isn't the only potential problem for banks. Analysts asked Dimon and Lake several questions about rising interest rates during another conference call later Friday.

There have been some concerns that even though the Federal Reserve is raising short-term rates, longer-term rates have barely budged lately. This so-called flattening of the yield curve could be the harbinger of an economic slowdown.

But Dimon didn't seem too think this would be a big problem. He even predicted that long-term bond yields, particularly the 10-year Treasury, would eventually start to creep higher again -- and that's another sign of a solid economy.

"Rates can go up in a healthy environment," Dimon told analysts. "It's not always true that the 10-year going up is bad."

The lingering uncertainty may be worrying investors a bit however. Even though the bank's profit surpassed analysts' expectations, JPMorgan's (JPM) stock was down slightly Friday.

JPMorgan is just one of several big banks to report results Friday. Citigroup (C) and Pittsburgh regional banking giant PNC (PNC) also posted profits that topped forecasts. But scandal-plagued Wells Fargo (WFC) reported earnings that missed Wall Street's targets




Must be nice.

Jul 13 - Westchester Woman Who Faked Having Terminal Cancer Sentenced To Prison

3 people viewing this

| By The N - 2 days ago



visit this link https://newyork.cbslocal. .. cancer-prison/WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Westchester County woman is being sent to prison after faking a terminal cancer diagnosis to scam people out of tens of thousands of dollars in donations.

Vedoutie Hoobraj walked into federal court in White Plains on Friday with a mane of thick black hair however, that’s not how many people in the Village of Ardsley remember her. Hoobraj shaved her head and eyebrows, went by a different name, and lied about having cancer. She then used the charade to scam residents into donating around $50,000 for non-existent treatments.

A judge sentenced her to two years in prison and ordered the scammer to repay $47,000 to the victims Friday.

“She’s a phony, she’s a fraud,” said Robert Wootten, of the Ardsley Football Club, who helped organize a fundraiser to help. “Don’t mess with Ardsley and give the money back.

“Brought her dinners, brought her flowers, checked in,” resident Dawn Byck told CBS2’s Dave Carlin.

The judge was not swayed by a doctor’s report from the defense that detailed years of abuse when Hoobraj was younger, suggesting that was a factor. The judge said that was just “psychobabble” and called the crimes “truly appalling” and “unforgivable.”

Prosecutors say Hoobraj’s act was so convincing even her own sons and an ex-boyfriend were led to believe she had terminal cancer.

“I know what I did was wrong,” the prison-bound mother of two said. “I will spend the rest of my life becoming the mom you deserve.”

Hoobraj is being given some time to situate her younger high school-aged son with family friends before surrendering to start her prison term on August 27.

Jul 13 - Newark puts up $1 Billion in effort to secure 2nd Amazon HQ

3 people viewing this

| By Joey96 - 2 days ago

The pitch to bring Amazon's second headquarters to Newark got another boost on Wednesday -- worth about $1 billion.*

Newark City Council*approved a payroll tax exemption*for any corporate headquarters that intends to create 30,000 jobs in the city and invest $3 billion over 20 years. The corporation would be exempt from paying the 1 percent payroll tax fo employees who live in Newark and would pay 50 percent of the tax for other company workers.*

The waiver is capped at $1 billion.*

Council members voted without any discussion or public explanation but the move would clearly benefit Amazon, which has plans to bring 50,000 jobs to its new location.

Mayor Ras Baraka praised the vote and said it brought the city "a giant step closer to being Amazon's choice for HQ2."*

The city already*waives the payroll tax for companies*that employ more than 50 percent local workers.*

Image inside Jul 13 - Autistic pedophile filmed sex attack is spared jail because he wouldn't cope

3 people viewing this

| By Sin - 2 days ago


A man with autism who sexually abused two young girls on separate occasions has been spared a sentence because he "wouldn't cope mentally in prison".

Steven McLone, 27, from Lazenby, who was described as "odd", filmed one of the girls on his phone as he attacked her.


In a separate offence, he tried to photograph a girl during the traumatic ordeal.

McLone appeared at Teesside Crown Court on Monday, where he plead guilty to both offences, reports Teesside Live.

Jonathan Walker, prosecuting, said one of the girls he sexually assaulted was clearly "terrified" by the incident.

Mr Walker said: "He took pictures while he tried to undress her. The victim was extremely upset and immediately reported him.

Intimate images of the victim were discovered on his phone by police in 2016, some of which were taken at the time of the sexual assault.

In a statement, one of the victims said his actions has "had an impact on school" and admitted to hearing voiecs.

Michael Knowles, McLone's defence, said that upon realisation of the severity of his crimes he fled to "an area of the moors" and "threatened to take his own life".

He added that it wasn't until the intervention of his mum that he desisted.

Mr Knowles said: "He immediately expressed remorse. He has autism, a life long disability that he will continue to have throughout his life. His autism is clearly linked to the case.

"There are concerns about how he would cope mentally and physically in prison.”

He added that a psychologist had said there was “no prospect of further offending”.

Judge Sean Morris told McLone: “You have always been regarded by others as odd.

“This is not an easy case to decide. But rehabilitation would be at risk if you were sent to prison.

“It would be more constructive to impose a community order.”


McLone was given a three-year community order and ordered to undertake 25 rehabilitation days.

He was also made subject to a sexual harm prevention order and put on the sex offenders register.

Jul 13 - Harvey Weinstein Admits Exchanging Acting Jobs For Sex

Harvey Weinstein reportedly admitted to offering acting jobs for sex


visit this link https://pagesix.com/2018/ .. -jobs-for-sex/


Quote:

For the first time ever, Harvey Weinstein admitted in an interview that he “offered acting jobs in exchange for sex” — but according to him, “so does everyone.”

“Yes, I did offer [women] acting jobs in exchange for sex,” the disgraced movie mogul told The Spectator in an interview published Friday. “But so did and still does everyone.”

Hours after the story was published, though, the writer backtracked — and said he “may have misunderstood” the 66-year-old.

“After 41 years as a Spectator columnist without a single retraction, I believe that I may have misrepresented Harvey Weinstein’s conversation with me,” wrote longtime Spectator columnist Taki Theodoracopulos in a statement.

“It was my mistake.”

The article, however, remained unchanged on the Spectator website Friday afternoon.

The columnist claimed that Weinstein told him he “never, ever” forced himself on “a single woman” — but often had to use his Hollywood prowess to get girls.

“You were born rich and privileged and you were handsome,” he said, according to Taki.

“I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere. You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood.”

Weinstein was joined by his lawyer, Ben Brafman, during the interview, which took place in New York last month. Brafman admitted that he was there, but claimed the statements published in the Spectator were never uttered.

“I was present for the conversation,” he said. “It was not an interview, but a social meeting between old friends. Harvey and Taki did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to. They talked about old Hollywood and the contrast to European culture, and I think Taki sees Harvey in that older light. Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favors. You have my word that Harvey did not say that.”

In his story, Taki claimed that Weinstein attempted to defend himself during the sit-down. He said that the award-winning producer accused at least two of his alleged victims, Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, of lying.

Taki said he told him that McGowan once alleged that Argento and her late boyfriend, celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, had an open relationship.

“It was obviously not true, says Harvey, but dead men tell no tales,” Taki wrote. “So the girls made it up.”

In response to his claims, McGowan took to Twitter on Friday to blast Weinstein for his “clear lies.”

“Rapists are liars,” the actress tweeted, linking to the Spectator piece.

“Being that I was in the middle of my second film for his company, having NEVER met him before the morning of my rape, and never worked for him again, this is a clear lie,” she said. “Nice try, rapist.”

Weinstein was reportedly the one who initiated the interview with Taki, though it’s unclear when it took place exactly.

“I’ve got a world exclusive for you, are you interested?” the columnist recalled him saying over the phone.

The pair got together at Weinstein’s office across from Grand Central station, Taki said.

“The last time we met I had gone to his downtown office where many of the alleged sexual assaults had taken place,” the columnist wrote. “He used to ring me via his assistants and make me wait on hold … This time there was no wait.”

Describing his personal feelings about Weinstein, Taki said: “Call me naïve or stupid, but in a funny way I believe him.”

The writer added, “I’ve seen Harvey in action during my annual Christmas party, the one I throw every year in New York with Michael Mailer. He hits on every young woman but in a naïve way. ‘Will you give me your address and I’ll make you a star,’ is the theme of the pickup. Some say yes, some say no. His reaction was always the same. Smile and laugh and hit on the next one.”

Weinstein has been indicted on felony charges of first- and third-degree rape, first-degree criminal sex act and predatory sexual assault.

More than 75 women have come forward and accused him of sexual misconduct or harassment. The allegations helped spark the #MeToo and “Time’s Up” movements in Hollywood last year.

Weinstein has insisted for months that he’s innocent, as has his legal team.

“The suggestion that Mr. Weinstein raped anyone, just based on what I’ve seen, just based on the evidence I’ve seen, is just a preposterous allegation,” Brafman told reporters last week. “So far, everything he has told us to look for we have found. And his denials are in my judgment being confirmed everyday by a lot of evidence we are finding that is independent of Mr. Weinstein.”

The longtime producer has forfeited his passport and is currently wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet to track his every move. He’s been ordered to stay away from the three women whose claims led to criminal charges. His next court date is Sept. 20.

Queen Elizabeth stood onstage in the summer heat for 15 minutes Friday before she was joined by President Donald Trump, who was already fresh from a press conference where he publicly knocked Prime Minister Theresa May as she stood beside him.

The 92-year-old Elizabeth II, in coat, hat and gloves, stood under a white awning on the Windsor Castle grounds, waiting for Trump's motorcade. He and first lady Melania Trump eventually stood beside the queen as some uniformed Brits played "The Star Spangled Banner" before joining her inside for tea.

In perhaps the most aggressive British action against Trump yet, the Queen was seen twice checking her watch, even as she continued to stand outside wearing a hat and coat in the middle of the summer.

Jul 13 - 12 Russian intel officers indicted for DNC hacking in Mueller investigation

3 people viewing this

| By Moon phase - 2 days ago




Quote:

A federal grand jury on Friday returned one new indictment as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to court officials.

The latest indictment targets 12 Russians for engaging in a sustained effort to hack networks of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s Campaign. All 12 are members of the GRU, Russia's intelligence service.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announce details of the indictment at a press conference Friday afternoon.

In just over a year since his appointment as special counsel, Robert Mueller and his hand-picked team of prosecutors have filed nine indictments covering twenty individuals and three businesses, earned five guilty pleas, have two criminal cases headed to trial, and sentenced one person to prison.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have repeatedly called Mueller’s investigation a “Witch Hunt”.
Friday’s indictment comes as Rosenstein faces increased scrutiny from President Trump’s backers on Capitol Hill. House Republicans have threatened to hold Rosenstein in contempt of Congress for what they say is the Justice Department's failure to comply in a timely manner with a subpoena for documents related to the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.

The Department of Justice last Friday sent a letter to two House committees insisting it had fully complied.

Despite overwhelming support from lawmakers, Hawaii Gov. David Ige has vetoed a bill that would have allowed medical marijuana treatments for opioid and substance use disorders.

The veto comes six months after the Hawaii State Legislature introduced the SB 2407, which passed by a large majority in early May. But by late June, Gov. Ige had announced his intention to veto the legislation. And on Tuesday, he followed through, returning SB 2407 to lawmakers without approval.


Hawaii Gov. David Ige Rejects Bill That Would Let Opioid Users Treat Addiction With Medical Marijuana

Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York, already allow medical cannabis use to treat opioid and opiate addiction. And Hawaii was prepared to follow the three states’ lead.

The Hawaii State Legislature moved quickly to pass a bill that would allow people suffering from opioid use or addiction to use medical cannabis with a doctor’s recommendation.

After Gov. Ige announced his intention to veto the bill in late June, medical marijuana advocates and state lawmakers urged him to reconsider.

Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa called the matter “a life or death issue” for Hawaiians. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard echoed Hanabusa. “This legislation has the potential to save people’s lives in Hawaii,” she said.

There is an ongoing opioid epidemic across the United States. Overdose fatalities are the leading cause of death for people under 50.

But statistically, the opioid problem in Hawaii is less severe than in other places. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, opioid-related death rates were less than half the national rate in 2017, with 5.2 deaths per 100,000 persons.

Still, opioid-related overdose deaths are on the rise in Hawaii. And that’s the case even though Hawaii has one of the lowest prescribing rates of opioids in the country, according to NIDA


Experts Debate Whether Cannabis Can Really Curb Opioid Use

The question of whether medical cannabis is an effective treatment for opioid addiction or an effective replacement painkiller is still up for debate.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who represents Hawaii’s 2nd district, cited a 20 percent decrease in opioid abuse deaths and lower addictions rates in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as evidence of the effectiveness of medical cannabis to treat these issues.

Additionally, researchers at the University of Georgia recently published a study which found the availability of medical cannabis reduced opioid prescriptions.

According to the study, which used data from Medicare Part D, prescriptions filled for all opioids decreased by 3.7 million daily doses a year in states that opened medical marijuana dispensaries.

But a recent landmark study out of Australia suggests the opposite. There, researchers found that cannabis use did not produce better outcomes than opioids for people suffering from chronic pain. The study also concluded that medical cannabis did not reduce or replace opioid use.

Here’s Why Hawaii’s Governor Vetoed a Medical Marijuana Bill for Opioid Addiction

Whether or not medical cannabis can effectively treat opioid addiction and chronic pain doesn’t seem to have influenced Gov. Ige’s decision, however.

Instead, the Governor of Hawaii had a different reason for vetoing SB 2407.

Gov. Ige pointed out that the Department of Health in Hawaii already has a process in place to add new qualifying conditions for medical cannabis treatments.

That formal process is something patients and physicians can initiate annually. The evidence-based petition process allows caregivers and patients to apply to add new conditions, including opioid use and withdrawal symptoms.

Gov. Ige, a Democrat, has consistently been cautious about his state’s cannabis policy. He opposes the legalization of recreational cannabis, for example, on account of the ongoing federal ban.

His decision to veto SB 2407 indicates the governor isn’t willing to put in place any “shortcuts” to accessing medical cannabis.

Gov. Ige is seeking re-election. But his opponent, Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa has come out strongly in favor of more progressive cannabis policy for Hawaiians

A mother and daughter died when a roughly 800-pound boulder fell off a truck and smashed into their car, and now that truck driver is in custody, according to police.

Karen Christiansen, 67, was driving with her daughter, Jena Christiansen, 32, in Rosemount, Minnesota, Monday afternoon when the massive boulder dislodged from the back of the truck and crashed into their 2002 Toyota Avalon, the Rosemount Police Department said.

The mother and daughter, both of Shoreview, Minnesota, died from blunt force head trauma, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office said.

"My heart is broken," Jena Christiansen's boyfriend, Ryan Kilian, told ABC affiliate KSTP in Minneapolis. "She is the most amazing person I have ever met."

After the crash, authorities turned to surveillance video to track down the commercial truck involved, according to KSTP.



On Wednesday, detectives identified the commercial vehicle driver and owner as Joe Czeck, 33, of Hastings, Minnesota, police said.

Czeck was arrested and declined to give a statement, police said Thursday. Charges are pending, police said, and he is being held in the Dakota County Jail.
