LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The former manager of Stan Lee has been charged with elder abuse against the late comic book legend, a Los Angeles court official said on Monday.

Keya Morgan was charged on Friday with five counts of elder abuse, including false imprisonment, fraud and forgery stemming from an incident last summer when Lee was 95 years old, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Superior Court public information office told Los Angeles City News Service.

The spokeswoman added that a warrant for Morgan’s arrest had been issued.

Morgan, a New York-based memorabilia collector who became involved with Lee in 2017, was served with a restraining order last year after Lee’s family accused him of elder abuse.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office on Monday said it was unable to provide any information. An attorney for Morgan could not be located but last year Morgan denied allegations of abuse.

Lee, the co-creator of “Spider-Man,” “Iron Man,” “The Hulk” and dozens of other Marvel superheroes, died in November 2018 at the age of 95.

In court documents last year, Morgan was accused of seizing control of Lee’s Hollywood Hills home and hiring security guards with orders to keep away relatives and associates before moving the comic book creator to an unfamiliar condominium.

Lassa fever
Lassa fever outbreak

By Ibrahim Bello

The Kebbi Government on Sunday confirmed one death from six cases of Lassa Fever in the state.

Dr Assad Hassan, Epidemiologist at the state Ministry of Heath, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi, that the cases were recorded between February and April.

Hassan told NAN that four of the victims were from Birnin Kebbi, while the remaining two were from Bunza Local Governmment Area (LGA) of the state.

“The persons confirmed to be infected with the disease are between 23 to 65 years, and they include four males and two females,” he said.

According to him, one of the female patients was the one that died within hours of arrival at the Federal Medical Centre in Birnin Kebbi.

He said the blood sample taken from the deceased tested positive to Lassa fever.

“The medical doctor that attended to the deceased was also infected with the fever but has been treated and discharged from hospital,” he added.

Hassan further explained that the last confirmed case was on April 27 and refuted reports that two children had died last week as a result of the fever.

“In response to the outbreak, there has been continuous sensitisation of health care workers on Lassa Fever detection and infection, prevention and control measures within the hospital setting.

“Similarly, advocacy, social mobilisation and community engagement has been carried out in all the 21 LGAs of the state,” Hassan said.

The epidemiologist also advised communities to keep food and drinking water in rodent-proof containers and to also bring sick family members to the hospital early enough for treatment.

Royal Mail investigates fake Diane Abbott stamps | UK News https://dailynewsappraisal.com/royal-mail-investigates-fake-diane-abbott-stamps-uk-news/ https://dailynewsappraisal.com/royal-mail-investigates-fake-diane-abbott-stamps-uk-news/#respond Sun, 19 May 2019 10:37:11 +0000 https://dailynewsappraisal.com/royal-mail-investigates-fake-diane-abbott-stamps-uk-news/ [...]]]>

Royal Mail is investigating fake stamps featuring Diane Abbott’s face which are apparently making their way through the postal network.

An anonymous man claiming to be a London postman shared images of the red stamps – one of which was franked – with several news outlets.

It comes after Abbott, MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, became an internet sensation after she was seen sipping a canned mojito on a London tube train last month.

The Labour shadow home secretary later apologised for enjoying the alcoholic beverage on public transport.

The anonymous postie said the fake stamps were probably a “lighthearted stunt” despite it being a serious offence to send them.

They told the Hackney Gazette: “I have spotted what apparently nobody else has… there’s a Diane Abbott stamp making it through the mail.

“Obviously it’s a serious offence to send fraudulent stamps through the mail, though I feel this might be a lighthearted stunt.”

But Royal Mail has said it is looking into the counterfeit stamps and is hoping to prosecute those behind them.

A spokesperson said: “It is a crime to create or use counterfeit stamps. Royal Mail takes the necessary steps to protect stamp revenues which help fund the universal postal service which serves the UK’s 30 million households and businesses.

“We will seek to prosecute where we find someone has created counterfeit stamps or knowingly sold used stamps for re-use. This matter is being investigated by our security team.”

Sky News has contacted Ms Abbott for comment.

The bodies were buried near where they were discovered

Kenya’s authorities say the bodies of two babies, thought to be twins, have been found during a clean-up of a river in the capital, Nairobi. 

This is the eighth such discovery in recent months.

Officials believe the bodies are being dumped in the city’s rivers as a result of abortions, which are illegal in most cases in Kenya. 

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has called for an investigation into what he called a “worrying trend”.

Several workers were cleaning up the badly polluted Nairobi River that flows through Korogocho, one of the city’s biggest slums, when they made the grim discovery. 

They found the babies’ bodies in a plastic bag. One was still breathing but could not be saved.

The babies were buried near where they were discovered after the police said the parents could not be identified, governor’s spokesperson Elkana Jacob told the BBC’s Focus on Africa programme.

Governor Sonko believes that hospitals and clinics are dumping the bodies after performing abortions.

He has given his officials a week to investigate the issue.

As well as eight babies, four dead adults have also been found during the exercise to clean up the city’s rivers.

Kirchner, ex-Argentine leader seeks vice-presidency https://dailynewsappraisal.com/kirchner-ex-argentine-leader-seeks-vice-presidency/ https://dailynewsappraisal.com/kirchner-ex-argentine-leader-seeks-vice-presidency/#respond Sun, 19 May 2019 09:29:07 +0000 https://dailynewsappraisal.com/kirchner-ex-argentine-leader-seeks-vice-presidency/ [...]]]>

Ex-President Kirchner: now wants vice-presidency

With polls giving her strong support ahead of October elections, former Argentine president Cristina Kirchner made the surprise announcement Saturday that she will seek the vice presidency.

The announcement, made in a 12-minute video posted on social media, comes just three days before the leftist politician goes on trial on corruption charges.

Kirchner, 66, was widely tipped in polls to win the presidency, but she said in the video that she was asking former cabinet chief Alberto Fernandez to run at the top of the ticket as they seek to oust centre-right President Mauricio Macri.

Fernandez, who was chief of staff to Kirchner’s husband Nestor from 2003-2007 before holding the same position during her presidency, said he had accepted the offer as soon as he received it, on Wednesday.

He is considered a moderate. Nestor Kirchner died in 2010. Fernandez is also Kirchner’s maiden name.

Primary elections are set for August 11.

“We will work together to clean up an economy that day after day is condemning Argentines to a life of poverty,” the presidential candidate said, referring to the country’s economic crisis.

In her video, Kirchner said Argentines were living through “really dramatic” times, with more people than ever “sleeping on the streets, with problems at work or crying as they face electric or gas bills they cannot pay.”

Macri responded to Kirchner’s move by warning that “returning to the past would be self-destructive. We are on the right path.”

A series of corruption scandals shadowed Kirchner’s 2007-2015 presidency but she has retained a strong base of support, notably among the poorest Argentines.

That had helped make her a favourite in polling ahead of the October 27 presidential election, with some surveys putting her ahead of Macri.

Judge Claudio Bonadio had asked that Kirchner be held in pre-trial detention, but the parliamentary immunity she enjoys as a senator spared her.

It does not protect her from prosecution, however, and on Tuesday she faces a trial on charges of diverting public funds.

LONDON (Reuters) – Kate, Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, traveled on Tuesday to the old home of Britain’s World War Two codebreakers – and where her own grandmother worked, visiting an exhibition marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

The historic site in Milton Keynes is where mathematician Alan Turing cracked Nazi Germany’s “unbreakable” Enigma code. 

“D-Day: Interception, Intelligence, Invasion”, held in the Teleprinter Building where codebreakers worked on intercepted messages, features an immersive film, shown on a giant curved screen, based on newly declassified information showing how Bletchley Park helped in the planning of the allied landings in France in June 1944.

On a previous visit in 2014, Kate, the wife of Britain’s Prince William, met veteran codebreakers who worked alongside her late grandmother, Valerie Glassborow and her twin sister.

Warriors rally to beat Blazers in Game 3 https://dailynewsappraisal.com/warriors-rally-to-beat-blazers-in-game-3/ https://dailynewsappraisal.com/warriors-rally-to-beat-blazers-in-game-3/#respond Sun, 19 May 2019 07:37:33 +0000 https://dailynewsappraisal.com/warriors-rally-to-beat-blazers-in-game-3/ [...]]]>

Back on their home floor, the Portland Trail Blazers had a chance to pick up their first win in the Western Conference finals on Saturday night.

Yet after building an early 18-point lead, the Trail Blazers fell just short.

The Golden State Warriors rallied back to beat Portland 110-99 at the Moda Center, moving them just a single game away from a fifth-straight trip to the NBA Finals.

The Blazers came out hot, quickly jumping to a 10-point lead in the opening minutes behind a 15-5 run to start the game. The Warriors cut Portland’s lead to just two points by the end of the quarter, however, thanks to nine points from both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

A 10-0 run early in the second, while holding the Warriors to just five points in nearly the first five minutes of the period, pushed Portland back into control with a 15-point lead. While Draymond Green drilled a floater at the buzzer just before halftime, the Warriors still went into the locker room down 13. Blazers center Meyers Leonard, who made just his third start of the season on Saturday, led Portland with 13 points in the first half while shooting 5-of-7 from the field.

Golden State came finally alive in the third quarter, mounting a massive 22-6 run late to pick up its first lead of the game. While their offense was impressive, the Warriors’ defense was even more so, limiting Portland to just 13 points in the third quarter to grab a three-point lead.

“Tonight, they went on another one of those runs,” Portland guard Damian Lillard said. “I thought we were in the game, but when you give up one of those runs and you don’t control the game enough, it can get away from you … they hurt you in those situations.”

The Warriors, having stole all the momentum in the third quarter, quickly pushed to an 11-point lead in the first seven minutes of the fourth. From there, the Warriors held on and rolled to an 11-point win.

Curry led the Warriors with 36 points, having shot 6-of-16 from the three-point line. Thompson added with 19 points, and Green finished with a triple-double with 20 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists — which marked his seventh career postseason triple-double.

“I don’t even know what to say about Draymond,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He was like a wrecking ball out there. He was just destroying everything in his path. The pace that he was generating was incredible and it just seemed like he never got tired … It’s one of the best games I’ve ever seen Draymond play.”

C.J. McCollum led Portland with 23 points in the loss. Lillard added 19, and Leonard finished with 16. As a team, Portland scored just 33 points in the second half.

Game 4 of the series is scheduled for Monday night in Portland, where the Warriors will have a chance to clinch a Finals berth and guarantee nine full days of rest before that series starts.

Still, Kerr said he isn’t looking ahead.

“We won’t talk about anything other than Game 4,” Kerr said. “What’s after that doesn’t matter. Maybe Game 5. What’s after that might be Game 6. So we just focus on the next game ahead of us.”

South Western Rail investigating after worker ‘broadcasts porn’ to giggling passengers | UK News https://dailynewsappraisal.com/south-western-rail-investigating-after-worker-broadcasts-porn-to-giggling-passengers-uk-news/ https://dailynewsappraisal.com/south-western-rail-investigating-after-worker-broadcasts-porn-to-giggling-passengers-uk-news/#respond Sun, 19 May 2019 07:36:02 +0000 https://dailynewsappraisal.com/south-western-rail-investigating-after-worker-broadcasts-porn-to-giggling-passengers-uk-news/ [...]]]>

Commuters were left bemused after what sounded like audio from a pornographic film was broadcast on a train’s loudspeaker system.

In a video posted on Twitter, passenger Paul Brunton captured the moment giggling travellers were forced to listen to the sexual sounds on their journey.

It appeared as if a South Western Railway employee had accessed the X-rated material while a microphone was live, accidentally broadcasting it to the unsuspecting commuters.

Posting the footage, Mr Brunton wrote: “My tube driver casually watching porn whilst leaving the tannoy system on…”

One woman in the video is heard asking: “Is that coming from the driver?”

Amid the confusion, another answers: “No, it’s someone’s phone.”

Transport for London responded to the clip on Twitter, saying: “Oh dear 😳🙈 Thankfully not one of our trains or drivers 😂

The video, which has received almost 800,000 views, attracted hundreds of comments from amused social media users responding with puns and innuendos.

“At least someone’s enjoying the commute to work,” wrote one, while another added: “The grade school giggles are cracking me up.”

A South Western Railway spokesperson apologised for the incident and said the operator was investigating.

“South Western Railway has a policy of blocking inappropriate material, including pornographic websites, on its onboard and station Wi-Fi services,” they said.

“We are investigating this incident to establish how this material was broadcast on our service.

“Yesterday’s incident is wholly unacceptable and we apologise to customers.”
