Four sexual assault cases have been reported in the UK against Kevin Spacey

The new today - Gio, 26/05/2022 - 8:01pm

LONDON (AB) – Actor Kevin Spacey is facing four charges against three men, British prosecutors said on Thursday.

The Crown Prosecution Service said Spacey was “charged with trespassing and engaging in unauthorized sexual activity.”

The alleged incidents took place in London between March 2005 and August 2008 and the alleged incidents in the West England in April 2013. The victims are now in their 30s and 40s.

Rosemary Einsley, head of the service’s special crime unit, said the charges followed a review of evidence collected by London Metropolitan Police.

Spacey, a 62-year-old Double Academy Award winner, has been questioned in 2019 over allegations that he was assaulted by several men by British police. The former “House of Cards” star hosted the Old Wick Theater in London between 2004 and 2015.

Spacey won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1995 for “The Usual Suspects” and the Oscar for Leading Actor in 1999 for “American Beauty”.

In the 1980s, when Rob was a teenager, actor Anthony Rob accused the star of attacking him at a party, and in 2017 his glorious career came to an abrupt halt. Spacey denies the allegations.

The UK charges were announced Thursday while Spacey was testifying in a New York City court in a civil case filed by Rob. Spacey did not respond to reporters when he left the courtroom talking on his cell phone.

The new criminal charges were briefly cited by Robbin’s lawyers during the court hearing, and reporters were asked about this during Space’s lawyers’ testimony break. They declined to comment.

Another criminal case brought against Spacey, an indecent assault and battery charge, allegedly involved beating an 18-year-old man at the Nantucket resort, which was dismissed in 2019 by Massachusetts prosecutors.

Thursday’s court session in New York City handled the technical issue of a civil case, whether it was handled better in a federal or state U.S. court. Spacey was called to testify as to where he lived, not about the veracity of the allegations against him.

Spacey testified that his main residence and residence was in Baltimore, where he went for the filming of “House of Cards”. He said he was “mesmerized by its charm and its beauty.” But he also testified about how long he lived in London as art director at Old Wick.

He noted that his beginning was disturbed by a “catastrophic preparation” of Arthur Miller’s last play in 2005, adding that “it is very important to me that I love the British people so that I do not run away.”

But, he said, “I am an American citizen. I came back to America after work.

He said he went to London in February 2020 for a possible film, but his American doctor advised him to stay there because of an epidemic, he stayed there until next September, his visa expired and he flew to Los Angeles. Arbitration action.

He said he had not returned to the UK. From.


Associated Press writer Larry Newmister contributed to this report from New York.


Adjusts the story to reflect that it is not Spacey, but Robbin’s lawyers, who are facing criminal charges in court.

Jaylan Brown leads the Celtics in the second half as Boston beat the Miami Heat to advance to the NBA Finals

The new today - Gio, 26/05/2022 - 12:00pm
1:04 AM ET

  • Tim BondempsESPN

MIAMI – Halfway through the 5th game of the Eastern Conference Final on Wednesday night, the Boston Celtics found themselves trailing the Miami Heat by five points.

Still, the Celtics felt better. They could not have played too badly in the first half, making 10 turnovers and conceding nine attacking rebounds to Miami – allowing the Heat to take 14 extra shots.

“In many ways we didn’t play better than we did,” said Celtics coach Ime Utoka. “Sometimes, it’s enough for a guy to get back to his average game.”

No one played badly Jaylan Brown. He went 7-for-2 from the field and made four sales – all in the first quarter.

Then the second half began. Also, as it played out, Brown was the team’s turning point.

Brown’s 19-point, 0-turnover second-half – 18-point combined with the second half Jason Tottam – Moving Boston into another victory on their first trip to the NBA Finals in 12 years, the Celtics won 93-80 over the Heat, allowing Boston to break a rock fight in the first half. .

“Same player,” Brown said from the first half to the second. “Just have to settle down. That’s all. The game wears off, some of that energy, that intensity starts to wear off a little bit, so the game opens up a little bit. The game opened up for me in the second half.

“I do not want to go down. I do not want to see the past. I think this game is over. I need to come out and respond to my team.

“The first half s —. Threw. [Just] Come out and play basketball in the second half. “

2 is related

After another ugly basketball game in this series for the Celtics in the first half of Game 5 it is unclear whether Boston can really follow Brown’s instructions. The rails in this series, however, did not allow the Celtics heat game to open, which was different from other periods when Boston left.

On the contrary, things were ugly on Ledger’s Miami side. Todd and Brown combined to go 10-for-33 in the first half when the Celtics threw the ball around, but Miami could not hit anything. Its opening backcourt Kyle Lori And Max Stress Went from field to 0-to-15 and from 3-point range to 0 to -12. Jimmy Butler, Playing through a knee issue, ended 4-for-18. Also, overall, the Heat finished the worst at 7 -45 from the 3-point range.

“You have to enjoy this,” said heat coach Eric Spolestra. “You know, if you’ve wanted to beat a ticket to the final, you’ll have to do some ridiculously difficult things.

Like the rest of the series, it was a game. But for the Celtics – a team that has made its significant interim twist around suffocating defenses – it is the latest example of the physical fitness they have been proud of throughout the playoffs.

“I think the stress and difficulty we caused on some teams with our defense sometimes led us to the playoffs,” Utoga said. “You saw in the Brooklyn series, the guys started getting tired. Game7 [last round against the Milwaukee Bucks, Giannis] Antetokounmpo Reduced some. But constantly throwing all those bodies at people makes them physically and mentally exhausted, making it harder until we give them easy baskets in transition.

“With our comrades, we always hope they do it and eventually find it.”

Brown and Tatum certainly did in the second half. After those early struggles, Brown went into the final three quarters without a turnover. Also, in a game where someone cries for someone, Brown advanced to the blade in the second half to make a shot after prefest on both sides of that first half.

He also hit the last shot of the third quarter (hard midrange bucket) and the fourth first (a triple on the wing), pushing Boston’s lead into double digits. He scored his 13 points in a 5-for-6 shooting in the fourth quarter and made sure it was right there.

“Guys settle down, are constantly aggressive, stop turning the ball over,” Brown said. “We gave them more shots than we did in the first half. We were only five down. If we look at that, we know we’ll get some open chances and we’ll drop them.

“So keep playing basketball, be aggressive. That’s why basketball is 48 minutes.”

It was a similar twist to Tatum, who repeatedly grabbed him by the shoulder throughout the first half as he worked his way out of the nerve issue that briefly knocked him out in the fourth quarter of Game3.

But Tottenham tried to play for the others in the first half, eventually finishing the night with 22 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists over 44 minutes as he – like Brown – eventually turned into a rhythm in the second half. Advanced.

“Yeah, it bothered me,” Todd said. “We just found out.

“Obviously, they’re a good team. Both teams play hard, compete and have things like that. But the guys like it. [Derrick] WhiteApparently [Marcus] Clever Being out, his presence and JP made some great shots. Everyone contributed from beginning to end. “

Now, the series returns to TD Gordon, where Boston – the sixth tour of the conference finals since finally making the NBA Finals – will finally have a chance to make that final step into the league championship round.

But in a postseason that the Celtics had already seen many twists and turns – including recovering from the same deficit – the Heat beat the Bucks 3-2 at the conference on the road at 6 p.m. Semi-Final – Boston has not finished its job yet.

“Speaking of the mood we had after the game, the last time we were trailing 3-2, we had to go on the road and win the 6th game, we did,” Tatum said. “We can not think it’s over. We need to get back home as we trailed 3-2, with the urgent feeling that this is a game we must win.

“It simply came to our notice then [for Miami to come back]. Obviously, we did it in the last series, so talking about it, obviously enjoying it, but not satisfied with knowing that there are still things to clean up, should play even better. The work is not finished yet. “

Kate Moss testified on May 25 that she was an ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp “I was never pushed, kicked, or thrown down any stairs.” Instead, he said he came to save himself after he described it as a bad fall during the holidays. Depp’s team called Moses as a denial witness Defamation investigation Against his ex-wife, Amber Hert. Depp and Heard both accused each other of abuse, and Heard testified on May 5 about a rumored domestic incident between him and the supermodel when the stars dated in the 1990s. “Ms. Moss, do you know Johnny Depp?” Asked his lawyer Ben Chev. “Yes,” Moss replied with a slight smile. Moss, who took the position via video from Gloucester, appeared with a new face and wore a dark jacket and white shirt for his testimony. He said he and Depp had a romantic relationship from 1994 to 1998. “Mrs. Moss, when you were a couple, did you two vacation together at the Golden Eye Resort in Jamaica? She responded positively. “What if something happens?” Chewing continued. “We were leaving the room. Johnny left the room before I could do it. It was raining. When I left the room, I slipped on the stairs and injured my back,” Moss said. “I screamed because I did not know what had happened. I was in pain. He ran back to help me and took me to my room for medical help.” Chew pressed: “Did Mr. Depp push you down the stairs in any way?” “No,” Moss said. Heard’s team did not cross-examine Moss.

When Depp took a stand again today as part of his denial case, he was asked about the rumor and its origins. What happened, Depp said, “what she said happened” refers to Moses. Depp recalled hearing the story. “Ms. What she heard took the story and turned it into a very ugly incident, everything was on her mind,” Depp said. “We were simply in Jamaica; I left our bungalow three minutes before her. I was standing outside. Suddenly it starts to rain, it starts to rain like a monsoon, and then I remember seeing Kate come out the door,” Depp said. There were three more small wooden stairs, and she slipped. Her legs came up and she landed on her coccyx. She was apparently in physical pain. She was injured. She was crying. So I ran to catch her to make sure she was fine. Deb continued: “That’s it. I’m always been that – that’s the whole story, the rumor about it, I’ve never heard a rumor like this before Ms. caught it.

The history of Moss’ involvement in Depp & Heard’s always-stumbled investigation is somewhat twisted. Depp was reportedly hit in the face during an argument in the spring of 2015, fearing he would throw his sister Whitney down the stairs. “I did not hesitate, do not wait. I, in my head, immediately thought of Kate Moss and the stairs. The sun The newspaper recalled hearing rumors that he had pushed an ex-girlfriend – whom he thought was Moss – down the stairs. On May 17, Heard was asked at the crossroads to explain his reference to Moss. “You thought he was going to throw your sister down the stairs like Kate Moss was throwing you down the stairs, weren’t you?” One of Depp’s lawyers referred to the allegation and stressed. When asked, he replied, “I heard a rumor, a big rumor, about it.” By naming Moss, Heard effectively paved the way for Depp’s lawyers to call him a witness, from a legal standpoint. Moss’s account with Depp also provides a counter – story to his behavior as a romantic partner. The video deposit testified to the jurors Ellen Parkin, Who briefly went out with Depp in the 1990s. Parkin described Depp as a “jealous” boyfriend who was often intoxicated. He also said Deb threw a bottle at a Las Vegas hotel room during an altercation with someone in his inner circle.

North Korea launches ICBM after Biden summit with Asian allies

The new today - Mer, 25/05/2022 - 11:57am
  • Three missiles were fired from near Pyongyang, South Korea
  • The apparent trials came after Biden held summits in Seoul, Tokyo
  • US, Korea test missile in response
  • The new S. Korean President N.Korea has promised a tough stance on weapons testing

SEOUL, May 25 (Reuters) – North Korea fired three missiles on Wednesday after US President Joe Biden ended a trip to Asia and agreed to new measures to deter the nuclear-armed state.

Kim Dae-hyo, South Korea’s deputy national security adviser, said North Korea had reportedly conducted several tests with the explosive device in preparation for the seventh nuclear test, but that the test was unlikely to take place in the coming days.

In response to the missile launch, the United States and South Korea conducted joint direct-fire exercises, including surface-to-surface missile tests involving the U.S. Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and the southern Hyunmoo-2 SRBM, both armies said.

They demonstrated other military strengths, such as dozens of fighter jets in the “Elephant Walk” system, highlighting the tough policy of the new South Korean President Eun-suk-yol on the rapid weapons tests in the north.

His predecessor, the liberal Moon Jae-in, built his legacy in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to engage with Pyongyang, but began holding several military events in the fall days of his administration this year after North Korea tested a series of missiles.

At the summit with Biden over the weekend, which began on May 10, June pledged that the United States would enhance joint military exercises and deploy “strategic assets” – typically nuclear-capable bombers, submarines or aircraft carriers – in the region. It is necessary to prevent North Korea. read more

“Our determination to retaliate against any North Korean provocation, including the launch of the ICBM, and our extreme ability and readiness to carry out a surgical strike on the origin of the provocation is a testament to the strength of our military,” a statement from South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

In a telephone conversation with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, South Korea’s defense chief called for the stabilization of US strategic assets, and Seoul’s Defense Ministry said both sides agreed to strengthen the U.S.’s extended blockade in the face of provocations in the North. read more

North Korea has launched missile launches this year, for the first time in almost five years, testing its largest intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBMs) with hypersonic weapons.

Washington and Seoul officials recently warned that North Korea was ready to resume nuclear testing for the first time since 2017, perhaps during Biden’s visit, during his first visit to Asia as president.

Three missiles

South Korean joint leaders said Wednesday that all three missiles were launched from the Sunan area of ​​the northern capital, Pyongyang, where its international airport has become a hub for missile tests.

The first missile appeared to be the largest ICBM in the north, the Hwasong-17, while the second unspecified missile appeared to have failed in midair, said Deputy National Security Adviser Kim. The third missile is a short-range ballistic missile aimed at improving its nuclear delivery capability, he said.

“We think there are political motives behind testing the security preparedness of our new administration and sending a strategic message to South Korea and the United States after President Biden’s departure,” Kim told a news conference.

Military sources in Seoul told Reuters experts believe the second and third missiles, believed to be KN-23 SRBMs, were first tested in 2019 and were designed to avoid missile defense by flying in low, “depressed” trajectories.

South Korea described Pyongyang’s Hwasong-17 test as a failure in March, and launched a 2017 self – imposed ban on long – range missile and nuclear testing between stalled nuclear disarmament talks with Washington. read more

During Wednesday’s test, the suspected ICBM flew 360 km (224 miles) to a maximum altitude of 540 km, while the SRBM flew 760 km to a maximum altitude of 60 km, JCS said.

Message to allies

A White House official said Biden, who left Japan on Tuesday evening, had been briefed on the missiles. A foreign ministry spokesman urged the North to “avoid further provocations and engage in lasting and concerted dialogue.”

Japanese officials have condemned the tests, and Chief Secretary Hirokasu Matsuno has said the north could take even more provocative measures, including a nuclear test.

“The continuing provocations by North Korea will lead to stronger, faster South Korean-US blockades and deeper isolation,” the UN government said in a separate statement.

The Seoul Ministry of Foreign Affairs has agreed with South Korean Foreign Minister Park Geun-hye and US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken on a phone call to accelerate efforts to strengthen the blockade and facilitate a new UN sanctions resolution.

South Korea and the United States have offered to send the COVID-19 vaccine to North Korea, which is fighting its first confirmed outbreak and urging Pyongyang to return to diplomacy. read more

But there has been no response from Pyongyang to diplomatic revelations or aid, Biden said.

Shortly after Biden’s visit to the area, Russian and Chinese bombers launched a joint patrol near Japanese and South Korean air defense zones on Tuesday. read more

Extreme heat wave in South Asia ‘a sign of things to come’

The new today - Mar, 24/05/2022 - 11:53am

New Delhi (AP) – The catastrophic heat wave that has hit India and Pakistan in recent months is more likely due to climate change and is a vision for the region’s future, international scientists said in a study released on Monday.

The World Meteorological Organization analyzes historical meteorological data, showing that early, long heat waves that affect a large geographical area are rare, century-old events. But the current state of global warming caused by man-made climate change, That increased the heat waves 30 times.

If global warming rises to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels, such heat waves will occur twice a century and once every five years, said Arpita Mondel, a climate scientist at the Indian Institute. Technology in Mumbai, who was part of the study.

“This is a sign of things to come,” Montell said.

The results are conservative: An analysis released by the UK Meteorological Office last week suggested that the heat wave could be 100 times more intense due to climate change, with similar burning temperatures likely to recur every three years.

Global meteorological character analysis is different because it attempts to calculate how specific aspects of a heat wave, such as length and area impact, are largely generated by global warming. “The real result of how much of this event’s climate change has increased may be somewhere between our and (UK) meteorological office’s results,” said Frடdric Otto, a climate scientist at Imperial College London who was part of the study.

However, it is not certain what the catastrophe caused by the heat wave was. Temperatures in Indian cities and Pakistan have continued to hover above 45C (113F) in recent weeks. In Pakistan, temperatures as high as 50C (122F) have been reported in some places such as Jakobabad and Ore. Temperatures in some parts of the Indian capital, New Delhi, reached 49C (120F) this month.

India has been whitewashed in March, the hottest month in the country since records began in 1901, and was recorded in Pakistan and parts of India in April. The effects are layered and widespread: an iceberg erupts in Pakistan, Sending the flood down; Early heat burned wheat crops in IndiaRussia’s war in Ukraine has forced it to suspend exports to countries plagued by food shortages.; This reduced coal reserves in India due to the initial spike in electricity demandThe result is severe power shortages affecting millions.

Then there is the impact on human health. At least 90 people have died in both countries, but this may be a low number due to the lack of adequate death records in the region. According to a study by the Associated Press, South Asia is the most affected by heat stress In a database published by the School of Climate at Columbia University. More than a third of the world’s population lives in warmer climates in India alone.

Experts acknowledge that the heat wave not only combats climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but also underscores the need for rapid adaptation to its harmful effects. Children and the elderly are most at risk from heat stress, but its impact is greatest for the poor who have no access to cooling or water and often live in crowded slums that are warmer than leafy, rich environments.

Rahman Ali, 42, a rock picker in the eastern suburbs of the Indian capital New Delhi, earns less than $ 3 a day by collecting garbage from people’s homes and storing everything they can sell. It gives him a little respite from the heat of his tin roof house in the backyard work and crowded slums.

“What can we do? If I do not work … we will not eat,” said the father of two.

Some Indian cities tried to find a solution. As early as 2013, the western city of Ahmedabad was the first city in South Asia to design a heat wave project for a population of more than 8.4 million. The project includes a pre-warning system to prepare health workers and residents for heat waves. , Empowering administrations to keep parks open for people to shade, and they can change their schedule by providing information to schools.

The city is experimenting with different materials and trying to “cool” the roofs by absorbing heat differently. Dr Dilip Mavalangar, head of the Indian Institute of Public Health in Gandhinagar, a western Indian city, said their aim was to create sun-reflecting and low-temperature roofs using inexpensive materials such as white, reflective paint or dried grass. Helped design the 2013 plan.

Most Indian cities are less prepared, and the federal government of India is now working with 130 cities in 23 heat-affected states to develop similar projects. Earlier this month, the federal government asked states to raise awareness among health workers about managing heat-related illnesses and to ensure the availability of ice cubes, oral rehydration salts and refrigeration equipment in hospitals.

But Mavalankar, who was not part of the study, pointed out that most Indian cities did not have government warnings in newspapers or on television, and that local administrations “did not wake up from the heat.”
