Larry D. Woodruffe, 24, is one of two men charged with capital murder in the Dec. 30 killing of Jazmine Barnes, who was in a car with her mother and three sisters when someone in another vehicle opened fire on them, killing Jazmine.

The girl’s family, who are black, told investigators that the shooter was white and in a red pickup truck, but a tip eventually led to the arrests of Woodruffe and another black man, 20-year-old Eric Black Jr. Prosecutors allege that Woodruffe fired the shots from an SUV that Black was driving.

Andy Murray may retire after the Australian Open, with the severe pain from his troublesome right hip having become almost unbearable for him to play on, the former world number one said on Friday (January 11).

Overcome with emotion, the three-times Grand Slam champion wept at a media conference as he revealed that he had initially planned to quit after playing this year's Wimbledon tournament but now felt Melbourne Park might end up his swansong.

"There's a chance of that, for sure, because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months," the 31-year-old Briton, now ranked 230th in the world, said.

The Milwaukee County Transit System shared footage of bus driver Irena Ivic spotting the child walking across the overpass. The baby boy was barefoot, wearing only a onesie and a diaper in below-freezing temperatures.
Ivic stopped her bus and ran to pick up the child, bringing him on to the bus. A passenger used her coat to keep the boy warm. The toddler fell asleep in Ivic’s arms just as police arrived on the scene.
Police said that the boy had been left outside by his mother. Besides being cold and scared the child was unharmed, and was eventually reunited with his father.
Ivic said that she was just grateful to be able to keep the boy safe when she found him.

Ashley Judd's lawsuit against Weinstein dismissed

A federal judge in Los Angeles has dismissed actress Ashley Judd’s sexual harassment claim against movie producer Harvey Weinstein, but says that Judd could proceed with a defamation claim.

Ashley Judd's sexual harassment suit against Harvey Weinstein has been thrown out.

A federal judge in LA on Wednesday (January 9) ruled that Judd's relationship as an actress with the Hollywood producer was not covered under California law.

However, he's also said that Judd could go proceed with her claims for defamation.

In her suit filed last April, Judd accused Weinstein of smearing her reputation in 1998 after she refused what she said were his sexual advances.

The lawsuit alleges that he cornered her in a hotel room under the guise of discussing business.

She says he retaliated by making 'baseless smears' against her, which she then claims cost her a role in Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" series.

Judd was one of the first women, in October 2017, to make on-the-record allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein, which soon afterwards evolved into the online "#MeToo" movement.

Since then, the Oscar-winning producer has been accused of harassment by more than 70 women.

Weinstein is set to stand trial in New York later this year on five charges, including rape, involving two other women.

He's denied all accusations of sexual assault, saying any sexual encounters were consensual.

Mayor Announces Health Care Program for All New Yorkers

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Jan. 8 a health care plan to cover an estimated 600,000 residents, including undocumented residents. The announcement was first made on MSNBC's Morning Joe, and later that same day at the Lincoln Medical Center in the Bronx.

"About 600,000 New Yorkers who do not have any health care coverage at all ... have no where to turn—except the emergency room, which is exactly the last place we want to see people go," said de Blasio at the Lincoln Medical Center.

According to de Blasio many residents are uninsured, meaning they must resort to the emergency room for treatment and the city's money is not well spent for this reason. He said giving people the primary care they need and helping them avoid the emergency room will help the financial burden for patients.

The mayor touted the program as a step toward universal health care.

Saudi teen asylum seeker is in "safe place", UNHCR says

The 18-year-old Saudi woman asylum seeker who fled to Thailand saying she feared her family would kill her if she were sent back to Saudi Arabia was moved to a "safe place", the United Nations Refugee agency (UNHCR) told reporters in Geneva on Tuesday (January 8).

The UNHCR said it was investigating Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun's case and that it would take time to process her application for refugee status, before she can seek asylum in a third country, as UNHCR officials continued to interview her at an undisclosed location in Bangkok.

Qunun told the world of her dramatic plight on social media, drawing widespread support and concern, which convinced Thai authorities to back down from deporting her back to Saudi Arabia.

She was finally allowed to enter Thailand late on Monday after spending 48 hours at Bangkok airport, some of it barricaded in a transit lounge hotel room.

The case has drawn new global attention to Saudi Arabia's strict social rules, including a requirement that women have the permission of a male "guardian" to travel, which rights groups say can trap women and girls as prisoners of abusive families.

A Japanese restaurant chain paid over three million dollar (333.6 million yen) on Saturday (January 5) in a record New Year auction at Tokyo's new fish market.

"The tuna looks so tasty and very fresh, but I think I did too much," Kiyoshi Kimura, the owner of the Sushizanmai restaurant chain told reporters after the auction.

The price Kimura paid for the 278 kilograms (613 pounds) bluefin tuna caught off the coast of Japan's Aomori prefecture is double the price he had paid six years ago. In 2013, he set a record for buying a tuna at 1.7 million dollar.

Shortly after the auction, the record breaking tuna was transported to one of the sushi chain's outlets located in Tsukiji, the old fish market.

Saturday's auction was the first New Year bid of the new Toyosu market, after the iconic Tsukiji fish market was closed to make way to provide temporary parking for the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics.

The Unaffordable Care Act’s Death by Many Drops

2018-12-31    0 views
President Donald Trump has made clear his disdain for his predecessor’s hallmark policy, the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Even before Republicans failed to repeal it last year, Trump took matters into his own hands.

Through reinterpreting laws, exploiting its loopholes, and making agency-level rules, the administration has tried to make it irrelevant by creating alternatives.

One of the things the administration did this year was to expand short-term, limited duration insurance plans from three months to up to three years.

These plans don’t have to follow Obamacare’s rules, which means they often have much lower premiums.

Because they are cheaper, they are expected to attract people who either don’t have coverage or who face high premiums with Obamacare plans.

In November, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) encouraged states to apply for waivers that exempt them from some key Obamacare requirements.

These waivers allow states to experiment with ways to improve their local health care markets as long as they meet certain criteria.

Also this year, the administration put out guidance on how to avoid the tax penalty called the Individual Mandate.

Probably the most unpopular aspect of Obamacare, the mandate imposes a tax penalty on people who don’t have health insurance.

A judge in Taexas ruled Dec. 14, that the tax was unconstitutional, thus making the whole law unconstitutional. But the case is likely to be in the courts for some time yet, and CMS administrator Seema Verma said no one will be losing their coverage because of it.

One notable aspect about the case, which just shows Trump’s disdain for Obamacare, is that his Justice Department decided not to defend it in this lawsuit.

Trump has also been accused of trying to lower the number of people signing up through the federal health insurance exchanges by slashing the budget for navigators. Like their name implies, navigators help people navigate the website to sign up for health insurance.

However preliminary data shows that there’s only a 3.5 percent decrease in the number of people enrolled this year.

So far, Trump hasn’t been able to get rid of Obamacare, but he is doing everything in his power to weaken it.

Strong quake strikes off Philippines, tsunami warning withdrawn

A strong earthquake of 6.9 magnitude struck off the southern Philippine island of Mindanao Saturday (December 29), triggering a tsunami warning which was later withdrawn.

Residents of Davao City, more than 200km away from the quake's epicenter as reported by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), could feel the tremor, which lasted about one minute. Video obtained by Reuters showed people rushing out of buildings, but there was no major damage.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center initially said "hazardous tsunami waves" were possible within 300 km (186 miles) of the epicentre", along the coasts of the Philippines, Indonesia and the Pacific island nation of Palau. But the warning was canceled two hours later, with the center saying there was no longer a tsunami threat.

Both the Philippines and Indonesia lie on the Pacific "Ring of Fire", a horse-shoe shaped band of volcanoes and fault lines circling the edges of the Pacific Ocean.
