Teacher jailed for 20 years after having sex with 13-year-old boyA teacher has been jailed for 20 years after she admitted having sex with a 13-year-old boy multiple times.But Brittany Zamora, 28, insists she’s a “good and genuine person” who is “not a threat to society”.Police say she had sex with the boy multiple times, both in her car and her classroom, including one occasion when an 11-year-old pupil was in the room acting as lookout.She admitted 10 counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, two counts of molestation, two of furnishing sexually explicit material to a minor and one of public sexual indecency.She cannot be released early for good behaviour and must serve the entire two-decade term behind bars.The former sixth-grade at Las Brisas Academy in Arizona was caught when the victim’s parents noticed he was acting unusually, and installed monitoring software on his phone.The boy’s mother told the court: "Before, he was an innocent child, and now she stole his innocence from him. I hate Brittany Zamora for what she did to my son and family."Now you'll spend the rest of your youth and most of your adulthood in jail... I will not allow you to interfere in my son's life further.”When she was arrested, Zamora told police she feared she would not survive behind in jail, saying: “I'm little. They're gonna tear me apart."Zamora and her husband Daniel appear to still be on good terms, he told the court: “She is the best person I’ve ever known.”


Trump Trails Biden, Warren, Sanders in NBC-WSJ Poll Matchups

Trump Trails Biden, Warren, Sanders in NBC-WSJ Poll Matchups(Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump trails at least three Democratic hopefuls -- Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren -- in theoretical head-to-head matchups for the 2020 general election, a new poll showed.Biden, the former vice president, held the biggest lead among registered voters in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday: 51% to 42%, well outside the survey’s margin of error, which was plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.Senator Sanders of Vermont led Trump by 50% to 43%, and Senator Warren of Massachusetts was up 48% to 43%. A fourth Democrat, Senator Kamala Harris of California, was up against Trump by a point, 45% to 44%.Biden’s larger lead over Trump was largely due to his stronger performance among independent voters, white people and suburban residents than the rest of the Democratic field.Trump’s approval rating was at 45% against 52% who disapprove, broadly unchanged from the last few versions of the NBC/WSJ survey. He was at 89% approval among Republicans and had strong support from rural voters, men and older people.The poll was taken July 7-9 of 800 registered voters, more than half of whom were reached by cell phone.To contact the reporter on this story: Ros Krasny in Washington at rkrasny1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Ludden at jludden@bloomberg.net, Kevin MillerFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.


Germany calls for 'coalition of the willing' to take in migrants rescued from Mediterranean

Yahoo News - Sun, 07/14/2019 - 08:20

Germany calls for 'coalition of the willing' to take in migrants rescued from MediterraneanGermany has called for a “coalition of the willing” to take in migrants rescued while attempting to cross the Mediterranean to Europe. Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, called for a core group of European Union countries to agree a scheme without waiting for approval from the rest of the bloc. “We need a coalition of the willing for a binding quota system,” he said in an interview with a German regional newspaper group at the weekend.  "We must now go ahead with the member states that are ready to accept refugees. The others remain invited to participate.” Germany was “always prepared to take its share of the migrants”, he added. Mr Maas’ comments comes amid growing concern over the issue. At least 682 migrants have drowned attempting to cross the Mediterranean so far this year, according to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), and at least 53 were killed in an air strike on a detention camp in Libya earlier this month. EU justice and interior ministers are due to hold talks on the issue this week, but they will meet against the backdrop of a diplomatic stand-off over Italy’s refusal to allow migrant rescue ships to enter its harbours. Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, called for a "coalition of the willing" to take in the migrants Credit: LUDOVIC MARIN/AFP Mr Maas’ proposals came under fire from Sebastian Kurz, the former Austrian chancellor, who accused him of giving false hope to migrants. “We must not send out false signals and must absolutely prevent any more people risking their lives in the dangerous passage across the Mediterranean,” Mr Kurz said. Italy countered with its own proposals to deal with the problem by deterring migrants from attempting the crossing. Enzo Moavero Milanesi, the Italian foreign minister, called on Sunday for specially chartered flights to bypass the Mediterranean altogether. Under the Italian proposals, the EU would decide migrants’ asylum claims in north Africa and fly those granted refugee status to be flown to Europe. “Those who have the right to asylum must be able to travel in dignified conditions, not in the hands of criminals,” Mr Milanesi told Corriere della Sera newspaper. “Migrants are not looking for Italian, Greek or Maltese shores. They are looking for Europe. Therefore we must find a solution within a European framework.” Operation Triton, the EU’s rescue mission, ended last year, leaving only ships manned by volunteer organisations to rescue migrants from drowning. But Italy has refused to allow the volunteer ships to land at its ports even if other EU states agree to take the migrants on board. Matteo Salvini, the hardline Italian interior minister, has rejected a formal request from Germany to open its ports

JetBlue flight evacuated at Newark Airport after suicide vest photo AirDropped to passenger iPhones

Yahoo News - Sun, 07/14/2019 - 07:32

JetBlue flight evacuated at Newark Airport after suicide vest photo AirDropped to passenger iPhonesA plane was evacuated after someone sent a photograph of a suicide vest to passengers and flight attendants on board.The unknown sender used Apple’s AirDrop feature, which allows users to easily and anonymously transfer files to other iOS devices using Bluetooth.Authorities say the Florida-bound plane was about to take off from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey when the image was widely shared on board.A member of the crew on JetBlue flight 573 alerted the captain, who informed authorities at about 7.45am on Saturday.The plane returned to the gate and the 150 people on board were asked to leave the aircraft, and their luggage was re-screened and examined by police bomb-sniffing K-9 dogs.“We pull up to the gate and then we pull away and the captain comes on and says there's been a security threat,” Thomas Desmond told NBC News.“It was nervous when you see Port Authority police officers coming onto your plane and you just have no idea what's going on.”The culprit was likely one of those on board, as AirDrop only works with those in close proximity to the sender. However, they were not traced.JetBlue said the additional security screening was carried out due to “an abundance of caution.”The flight eventually departed just before 11.30am, with no knock-on effects to other flights departing or arriving at Newark.

Bones found after tombs exhumed in hunt for girl who went missing in Vatican City 30 years ago

Yahoo News - Sun, 07/14/2019 - 07:23

Bones found after tombs exhumed in hunt for girl who went missing in Vatican City 30 years agoThirty years after the disappearance of the 15-year old daughter of a Vatican City employee, a case that has mystified Rome for decades, the Vatican has announced that two sets of bones have been found under a stone manhole cover in one of its cemeteries.   A request from the family of the missing girl, Emanuela Orlandi, prompted the Vatican to open the tombs of two 19th-century German princesses in the cemetery of the Pontifical Teutonic College on Thursday this week. The family had received an anonymous tip that Orlandi's remains might be buried in that area of the cemetery.  However, after two hours of work, the team found the graves completely empty - containing neither the expected remains of the princesses or any clues to the more modern mystery.   Following the fruitless exhumation, Vatican police decided to hold new searches in the area of the cemetery where the remains of Princess Sophie von Hohenlohe, who died in 1836, and Princess Carlotta Federica of Mecklenburg, who died in 1840, should have been.  Vatican authorities said their bones could have been moved over the years due to structural works at the cemetery in the 1960s and 1970s. Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said Saturday the searches had centered on the area adjacent to the princesses' tombs, inside the Pontifical Teutonic College. There investigators identified two ossuaries – or set of bones – located under the pavement of an area covered by a manhole.  Mr Gisotti added the area was immediately sealed off and the ossuaries will be opened in the presence of forensic experts on July 20 for further investigations.  The two set of bones could belong to the two princesses, but could also bring the search for Orlandi a step forward.  The daughter of a Vatican bank employee, Orlandi disappeared in June 1983 after leaving her family's Vatican City apartment for a music lesson in Rome. Over the years,there have been many rumours, some wilder than others, about what happened to her – including conspiracies tied to the Mafia, the Vatican bank scandal and the plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II. The new inspections were a result of the ongoing efforts of the Orlandi family to find the truth about the disappearance of their relative. The Vatican gave the green light to the exhumations after the family received an anonymous note last summer, hinting that the girl's remains might be in one of the two graves located in the Vatican's Teutonic Cemetery.  According to the letter, Orlandi’s body should have been found in the tomb that an angel holding a sheet saying: “Rest in peace” points to from its location on the cemetery wall.

How China's crime crackdown has spooked expats used to wilder living

Yahoo News - Sun, 07/14/2019 - 07:02

How China's crime crackdown has spooked expats used to wilder livingAmid flashing lights and pounding music, foreigners had their pick of drugs – marijuana, cocaine, ketamine, meth, fentanyl. Nightlife ran wild here for years in Xuzhou, a lush pocket of eastern China dotted with lakes and ringed by mountains. “Back then we would go into clubs and just go table to table, drinking for free,” said one expat, declining to give a full name.  As few foreigners were willing to come for study or employment in this small city – accessible only by rail or road – expats said they were able to get away with this kind of freewheeling behaviour. But a broad crackdown in China against corruption and crime has finally stretched from big cities like Shanghai to smaller locales like Xuzhou. And the authorities are emboldened to nab foreigners at a time of rising tensions between China and Western nations, including the US, UK and Canada. “The ability and desire to catch foreign companies and foreigners operating illegally in China is higher now than it has ever been,” said Dan Harris, founder of Harris Bricken, a US-based law firm that specialises in China. Last week, a group of 16 foreigners - thought to include four Britons - were arrested after a drug bust based on what Xuzhou police said was a tip. One is under criminal detention, which is typically followed by formal arrest and conviction – China’s murky courts, controlled by the ruling Communist Party, have a 99.9 per cent conviction rate. The remaining foreigners are in administrative detention, and could spend up to 15 days in jail before being deported, though they aren’t blocked from future criminal charges. Foreigners in Xuzhou drinking in bars like this one did not want to talk to journalists Credit: Sophia Yan Government officials have clamped down on foreigners working on improper visas, and are conducting raids in office buildings and bars, mandating everyone to submit hair and urine samples. Even if a substance, such as marijuana, was legally consumed outside of China, anyone failing a drug test inside the country could face extreme trouble. Drug offences carry hefty penalties in China, including the death sentence for trafficking. The crackdown in Xuzhou has shaken the small expat community, mostly English teachers and students studying subjects including Mandarin, medicine, and mechanical engineering. Local bars popular with foreigners were empty over the weekend, while social media groups fell silent. Everyone was extremely tight-lipped; almost none were willing to exchange even basic pleasantries with the Telegraph. Two teachers from EF Education First, whose colleagues were among those arrested, dashed for the basement of a bar when the Telegraph approached. Another said he had been instructed not to speak with anyone, including media. An Education First school in Xuzhou Credit: Sophia Yan On Saturday, angry parents poured out of a meeting with management at one EF Xuzhou branch, demanding tuition fees be refunded, and blaming the institute for hiring teachers of poor integrity. Swiss-based EF, which runs a global chain of institutes including 300 branches in China, is the largest English education chain in Xuzhou, and has said it is cooperating with the local authorities. Brunswick, the global public relations firm representing EF, didn’t respond to a request for comment for this story at the time of publication.   Government propaganda has seized on the incident to promote nationalism and anti-Western sentiment. A state media editorial on Friday headlined “Keep toxic foreign teachers away from kids” blasted institutes like EF for failing to have higher employment standards “instead of blindly seeking profits.” While it remains to be seen how the Xuzhou arrests pan out, recent cases in China involving foreigners have been widely seen as politically motivated. Canada was targeted after Beijing made clear it was upset with Ottawa for arresting a Chinese tech executive on a US extradition request. In January, a Canadian arrested in 2014 who had been given a 15-year sentence for alleged drug trafficking was put on a rushed one-day retrial and slapped with the death penalty. The month before, China arbitrarily detained Canadians Michael Kovrig, a former diplomat, and Michael Spavor, a business consultant, on suspicion of endangering national security. China has also more recently used exit bans to prevent foreigners, including Americans who aren’t facing formal charges, from leaving the country. And Beijing has become more vocal against the UK in recent weeks as British officials, including prime minister candidate and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, have blasted China for eroding freedoms in Hong Kong. More than 40 British nationals were detained in China in the first four months of this year, triple the number over the same period in previous years. “China is using these arrests to send a message to unfriendly countries. They are essentially saying, we operate by our own rules so you had better not mess with us,” said Mr Harris. They’re “killing the chickens to scare the monkeys.” One of the anti-crime banners in Xuzhou which reads: “Fight crime and eradicate vice; Stay clear of porn, gambling and drugs" Credit: Sophia Yan For the Xuzhou authorities, the broader crackdown has been touted as a political success. Authorities boasted in May that they had arrested 4,286 suspects, recovered assets worth 3 billion yuan (£347 million), and awarded 16 informants for reporting illegal activity. Community police stations dot street corners and park entrances, and taxis are equipped with cameras – the same ones used in the far western Xinjiang region on lockdown where the United Nations estimates more than one million Muslims are detained in internment camps. And lest anyone venture out for a bit of fun, reminders that the authorities are looking for even the slightest hint of suspicious activity are never far. Signs advertise hotlines encouraging residents to report on each other, and public toilet entrances are equipped with facial recognition cameras. One nightclub, E11, is flanked with giant red anti-crime propaganda banners: “Fight crime and eradicate vice; Stay clear of porn, gambling and drugs.” Additional reporting by Yiyin Zhong

India says Deloitte misreading law in challenging government's call for ban

India says Deloitte misreading law in challenging government's call for banIndia has told a tribunal the local auditing affiliate of international accounting group Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu is misreading a key law as the firm seeks to avoid a five-year ban on new business, according to legal documents reviewed by Reuters on Sunday. Deloitte Haskins & Sells LLP is contesting the government's call for the ban on the auditor for its alleged involvement in a financial fraud. The government has said it detected several violations of auditing standards by Deloitte and a KPMG affiliate while investigating fraud at IFIN, a unit of Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services, whose debt defaults last year triggered fears of a financial contagion.


Egypt's 'bent pyramid', a 4,600-year old landmark in ancient construction, opens to visitors

Yahoo News - Sun, 07/14/2019 - 06:28

Egypt's 'bent pyramid', a 4,600-year old landmark in ancient construction, opens to visitorsEgypt on Saturday opened to visitors the 4,600-year-old “bent” pyramid, a 101-metre tall structure located just south of Cairo considered a landmark in the evolution of pyramid building. The pyramid was built in Dahshur around 2,600 BC by the fourth dynasty pharaoh Sneferu. The bent pyramid and the nearby “red” pyramid, also built by Sneferu, mark a transition from “step” pyramids, whereby the ancient tombs were constructed in several tiers, to the more well-known smooth-sided pyramids.  "The two pyramids King Sneferu built here eventually led Khufu, Snefru's son, to build the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World,” Egyptian antiquities minister Khaled el-Anany told reporters. Visitors can now descend down a 79-metre tunnel to reach two vaults deep inside the structure.

The pyramid’s architects changed the angle of the structure when cracks started appearing, according to Mostafa Waziri, secretary general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Maybe in this pyramid, who knows,” said Mohamed Shiha, director of the Dahshur site. As part of the pyramid's re-opening, the authorities also showed off a new collection of stone, clay and wooden sarcophagi, some containing well-preserved mummies, plus wooden funerary masks and instruments Credit: Mohamed El-Shahed/AFP A smaller 18-metre satellite pyramid, perhaps built for Sneferu’s wife Hetepheres, was also opened to visitors for the first time since being excavated in 1956. As part of the pyramid's re-opening, the authorities also showed off a new collection of stone, clay and wooden sarcophagi discovered at the site, some of which-contained well-preserved mummies. The Egyptian archaeological mission also found wooden funerary masks and instruments.  Unlike the more famous Giza pyramids, the site at Dahshur is in open desert and receives a fraction of the visitors. The opening of the bent pyramid coincides with a push by authorities to revive the country's beleaguered tourism sector.

While still a long way from reaching those kinds of figures again, the industry looks to be recovering, with 11.3 million visitors recorded in 2018, according to the World Tourism Organisation.


UK says seized Iranian oil tanker could be released

UK says seized Iranian oil tanker could be releasedBritain will facilitate the release of a seized Iranian tanker if Iran can provide guarantees the vessel would not breach European sanctions on oil shipments to Syria, Britain's top diplomat said late Saturday. The comments by Jeremy Hunt could help de-escalate tensions that have spiked in recent days. In apparent retaliation for the seized tanker, Iranian paramilitary vessels tried to impede the passage of a British oil tanker through the Strait of Hormuz, only turning away after receiving "verbal warnings" from a British navy vessel accompanying the ship, the British government said.
