Fire Victims Spend Third Night Outdoors

first_imgNearly 100 victims of the fire disaster that occurred last Thursday in New Kru Town’s Karpeh Street community spent their third night outdoors as community chairman Joe Carr  makes an urgent appeal for assistance to remedy the situation. Mr. Carr told the Daily Observer during a visit yesterday to New Kru Town that unless immediate intervention is provided, “I see another tragedy unfolding.” There are roughly 100 victims who suffered the loss of their belongings in the fire and have been spending the last three nights outdoors. “Many have moved away today and they will be back in the night to sleep outside here again,” Carr said. The fire victims comprise 25 men, 25 women and 50 children, he noted. “They lost everything and cannot afford to get accommodation elsewhere,” Carr said.  While the Karpeh Street Community that he heads as chairman is making efforts to secure accommodations for the victims, “We don’t have the financial capacity to be able to get accommodation for all these people and therefore they need immediate intervention by humanitarian groups,” he pleaded. He revealed that his community had sent two letters to both the disaster departments of the Liberia National Red Cross and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In a telephone interview with Mr. Christopher Johnson of the LNRC, he admitted receiving the letter over the weekend and said a team would visit the community today, April 27 to assess the situation.During the Daily Observer’s visit, it was observed that two women, a child and a man were found sleeping outdoors. Neighbors appealed for intervention since the rainy season is almost here. “I’m worried about the women and the children,” a neighbor cried. Meanwhile, Carr said efforts are underway to ensure that temporary shelter is secured to help the situation.  Chairman Carr told the Daily Observer that Mr. Robert Teah, who contested as a representative for Montserrado District #16, has presented an amount of LD10, 000 as his contribution to assist the victims. “We appreciate your humanitarian gesture,” Carr told Mr. Teah on the phone.    “We want God to bless everything you do.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Solana Beach parent charged in college admission bribery scam

first_img June 28, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Posted: June 28, 2019 BOSTON (AP) — A man who authorities say paid $250,000 to get his son into the University of Southern California as a fake volleyball recruit became the 51st person Friday charged in the sweeping college admissions bribery scheme.Jeffrey Bizzack, 59, has agreed to plead guilty to a fraud conspiracy charge, federal prosecutors said. He’s the first person to be charged since March, when authorities announced the arrests of dozens of prominent parents and athletic coaches at elite universities across the country.Bizzack’s lawyer said his client “voluntarily came forward to be accountable for his actions and accept responsibility.”“He deeply regrets what he did, and especially the effect it will have on his son. His son knew nothing of Mr. Bizzack’s actions. Mr. Bizzack will do his best to make up for this mistake and apologizes to USC and its hardworking students,” Attorney Seth Berman said in an email.Federal prosecutors say they will recommend nine months in prison.Bizzack, of Solana Beach, California, gave a total of $200,000 to the sham charity run by the admissions consultant at the center of the scheme and sent a $50,000 check to the USC “Galen Center” to have his son designated as a recruit for the volleyball team, authorities said. His son was formally accepted in March 2018.The consultant, Rick Singer, then made monthly payments of $20,000 to USC’s then-senior associate athletic director, Donna Heinel, for her help getting Bizzack’s son and other children of prominent parents into the school.Heinel has pleaded not guilty in the case.Singer began cooperating with investigators last year in the hopes of getting a lighter sentence and helped build the case against the parents. He pleaded guilty in March.Fourteen parents have pleaded guilty to taking part in the scam, which authorities say involved bribing coaches and rigging standardized test scores.They include “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman, who admitted to paying $15,000 to have someone correct the answers on her daughter’s SAT.Parents fighting the charges include “Full House” star Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into USC as fake crew recruits. They haven’t publicly commented on the allegations.The first person to be sentenced in the case — former Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer — avoided prison time . He’s serving two years of supervised release, including six months of home confinement with electronic monitoring and was ordered to pay a $10,000 fine.____Follow Alanna Durkin Richer at http://www.twitter.com/aedurkinricher AP, AP Solana Beach parent charged in college admission bribery scamlast_img read more

Google Fit to retire web support and focus on Wear OS

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Google Fit adds ‘Move Minutes’ and ‘Heart Points’ Android Wear watches, taking a break from exercise. Josh Miller/CNET If you log on to Google Fit’s website today, you’ll be greeted by a yellow banner saying web support for the health tracker is coming to an end. The Google Fit site will shut down on March 19, Google said in its announcement. If you want to keep track of your activities and continue your health goals, Google suggests you install the Fit app on your Android device or Wear OS smartwatch. The app got a makeover last year that added gamification features like Heart Points and Move Minutes to encourage more daily exercise. For example, Move Minutes suggests users take the stairs instead of the elevator. Heart Points let users earn — you guessed it — points for elevating their heart rate. Higher activity intensity earned double points. Google launched its health platform for smartwatches and added web support in 2014. The program was designed to help people set fitness goals, track activity and add exercise into their daily lives.  Mobile Comments 2center_img Tags 2:14 Share your voice Googlelast_img read more
