Ivy League head of Counseling and Psychological Services dies by suicide

No.458206 ViewReplyOriginalReport
>The executive director of counseling and psychological services at the University of Pennsylvania jumped to his death Monday morning from the 17th floor of a Center City Philadelphia building, officials said.

>Gregory Eells, 52, came to Penn six months ago to lead the department that counsels students with mental health problems. He had come from Cornell University, where he had worked for more than a decade and was an expert on resilience.

>His death occurred about 6:40 a.m. along the 100 block of South Broad Street, where Eells had been living. It was ruled a suicide by the medical examiner’s office, said James Garrow, a spokesperson for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health.

>Eells’ mother, Jeanette Eells-Rich, said he had been down in recent months, saying the job was harder than he anticipated and had kept him from his wife and three children, who were still living in Ithaca, N.Y.

>“I said, ‘Well, quit.’ His wife said the same thing,” Eells-Rich, 78, said in a phone interview from Salem, Ill., where she raised Eells and his younger brother. "We are confused. He was the most smiling, upbeat person I have met in my life.”

>Penn declined to discuss the circumstances around Eells’ death.

Totally-not-enemy-of-the-people New York Times claims that airplanes were to blame for 9/11

No.458839 ViewReplyOriginalReport

The New York Times caused an uproar on Wednesday with a now-deleted tweet and now-updated story that originally said “airplanes” were responsible for the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.

“18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center. Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died,” the Times’ verified Twitter account wrote in a message accompanying a story about 9/11 victims being remembered at Ground Zero.

The 9/11 anniversary message was immediately met with harsh criticism and was swiftly deleted.

“The @NYT says airplanes caused 9/11. Wrong. It was Muslim terrorists who waged jihad on American soil and killed thousands of our fellow countrymen in the name of their religion,” Fox News’ Todd Starnes wrote, while Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee noted that the paper doesn’t seem to “have much grasp on recent history.”

“Twin Towers NOT brought down because “airplanes took aim” at them, but b/c radical Islamists hijacked planes & took aim at them,” Huckabee added.

Many users compared the rhetoric in the Times tweet to an infamous remark made by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., earlier this year when she said “some people did something” when describing the 9/11 attacks.

Michael Cohen met with NY prosecutors investigating Trump Organization and Trump's crimes

No.459001 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Because states can prosecute a sitting President for crimes they commit.

The former personal attorney for President Donald Trump has entered into an agreement with New York City prosecutors to provide information about the president's business operation, a source familiar with the situation told NBC News Wednesday.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office is investigating the possibility that the Trump Organization falsified business records, the source said.

Representatives from the District Attorney's office met with Cohen on Aug. 20 at Otisville Prison, in upstate New York, where he's serving a three-year sentence, according to the source.

The deal stipulates that he will cooperate with the Manhattan District Attorney's office in its investigation. Proffer agreements allow defendants and suspects to provide information to prosecutors without incriminating themselves.

Cohen is serving his sentence after pleading guilty to campaign finance violations related to hush money payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Trump prior to taking office. He also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the president's business dealings with Russia and failing to report millions of dollars in income.

At his sentencing hearing, Cohen said he took "full responsibility" for his actions but that Trump led him to choose "darkness over light."

Russia’s Fascination with “Drug Bust” Marriage Proposals

No.459617 ViewReplyOriginalReport

Having armed men wearing combat masks manhandling you and simulating a drug bust hardly sounds like the scenario of a perfect marriage proposals, but it’s apparently all the rage in Russia.

Imagine driving a car, minding your own business, when all of a sudden a black van cuts you off and slams the breaks forcing you to do the same in a split second. That would be scary enough, but it gets worse. The van door slides open and masked men carrying assault rifles jump out and violently pull you out of the vehicle, while they go through your personal belongings seemingly searching for something. And then they find it – a small plastic bag full of white powder that they claim is illegal drugs. You’ve never seen it before, but they claim otherwise and you feel your legs shaking under you as you try to grasp the implications of the situation. Then, all of a sudden, one of the threatening men drops down to one knee, pops open a small case and says “Marry me!”

That’s pretty much the gist of the extreme wedding proposal trend that has been sweeping Russia over the last few years. At least four special event agencies, all staffed by ex-law enforcement and military personnel, specialize in this kind of extreme marriage proposal, with the drug bust scenario being by far the most popular one among clients.

“They’ve got no imagination! They all want special ops, armed arrest, drugs,” Sergei Rodkin, the founder of Spetsnaz Show, told the BBC. And psychologists say that there’s a very logical explanation to why that is.

J.J. Abrams sells out Bad Robot to WarnerMedia, avoids being bought by Apple

No.459594 ViewReplyOriginalReport

>After a nearly year-long courting process that saw J.J. Abrams and his wife and Bad Robot partner Katie McGrath take meetings with tech giants and traditional studios, the duo ultimately opted to take less money than they could have earned to stay with WarnerMedia.

>According to sources familiar with the deal, Bad Robot's five-year pact announced Thursday is worth at least $250 million and possibly much more thanks to various financial incentives. It will see Abrams and company develop and produce new film, TV, video game and digital projects for WarnerMedia's various divisions, which include Warner Bros., HBO and the upcoming HBO Max streaming service. Warners has been Abrams' television home since 2006, and the new partnership brings Bad Robot’s film output, which was through Paramount, under the same roof for the first time.

>According to sources, the ability to sell product to other outlets — i.e. setting up Lisey's Story, one of his three shows at Apple via Warner Bros. TV — was paramount to Bad Robot signing anywhere. It also is among the reasons why Bad Robot left millions of dollars on the table and walked away from what could have been a record-setting blockbuster deal with Apple.
