Image by United States Attorney’s Office.BUFFALO – A Jamestown man will be sentenced next month in U.S. Federal Court after previously pleading guilty to possession and production of child pornography.The U.S Attorney’s Office tells WNYNewsNow that James A. Chapman, no age given, is scheduled to be sentenced on Apr. 3. Chapman entered a guilty plea before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Villardo in U.S Federal Court last May.Chapman faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years in prison, a maximum of 40, and a $250,000 fine.Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango, who is handling the case, said that on Nov. 24, 2014, Chapman and Victim 1 communicated via Facebook Messenger about engaging in sexual activity. During the communications, the defendant offered to pay Victim 1 and one of her friends $60 each to have sex with him. Victim 1 stated that she was 16-years-old and that her friend was the same age. Later that evening, Victim 1 and Victim 2 went to Chapman’s residence in Jamestown, and the defendant engaged in sexual intercourse with them, after which Chapman paid each victim $60. Following the sexual activity, the defendant used his cellular telephone to take a picture of Victim 1 and Victim 2 completely nude sitting on his bed. A review of Chapman’s Facebook accounts revealed that he then distributed the photograph, which constitutes child pornography, to four other individuals.Subsequently, on April 7, 2017, the defendant began communicating with Victim 3, who was 17-years-old, through Facebook. During their communications, Chapman requested and received a sexually explicit image of Victim 3. The defendant then sent the image, which constitutes child pornography, to another individual. In addition, Chapman sent Victim 3 the sexually explicit image he took of Victim 1 and Victim 2.The plea is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert, and the Jamestown Police Department, under the direction of Chief Harry Snellings.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The two men at the center of high-profile police brutality cases that happened to converge on the same day last week spoke out Monday about deep-seated fear of the police and how their individual cases, while very different, paint a portrait of troubling allegations within law enforcement.Christopher Loeb, 29, of Smithtown, whose accusations that former Suffolk County Police Chief of Department James Burke beat him inside the Fourth Precinct station house while he was chained, led to a federal indictment against Burke, who pleaded not guilty at his initial court hearing on Wednesday. On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Leonard Wexler sided with federal prosecutors and held Burke without bail. Burke retired in October.While Burke’s case is only beginning, the brutality case involving 22-year-old Kyle Howell concluded Friday with the acquittal of Nassau County Police Officer Vincent LoGiudice. The judge in that case ruled that surveillance footage capturing the Howell’s traffic stop and the altercation that followed was not enough to prove that LoGiudice acted maliciously. Another officer involved in the incident was not charged.The two men were brought together Monday by their Garden City-based attorney Amy Marion, who represents both men in separate civil lawsuits.“I’m happy he’s behind bars. He deserves whatever time he gets,” Loeb said, referring to Wexler remanding Burke pending trial. “What he did was completely wrong, what he did to me.”“Everything I said—word for word—is coming out,” he told reporters in Uniondale.Howell, who remained mostly stone-faced during Monday’s press conference, expressed disappointment in the verdict.“I was pulled over by two Nassau county police officers who beat me with their fists, a flash light and kneed me in the face,” said Howell, who required multiple surgeries to repair a fractured sinus and badly damaged eye socket. “After I was assaulted, I did what I thought I was supposed to do. I spoke with the prosecutors, told them the truth and testified in court. But a judge said she believed the police who beat me and said I lied. But I didn’t—I told the truth.”Howell was originally arrested for assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, tampering with evidence, possession of cocaine and marijuana, speeding and driving with a broken windshield before the charges were dropped.Marion, who criticized both the judge’s decision and the Nassau District Attorney’s handling of the Nassau case, repeated her calls for federal investigators to examine LoGiudice’s actions. She also asked for a state court to re-open its suppression hearing in the wake of Burke’s arrest so the court could consider whether it’s appropriate to vacate Loeb’s conviction.For Marion, decisions in both cases on Friday spurred conflicted feelings. On one hand, after a three-year investigation, Burke was arrested for allegedly beating her client and covering it up. Just minutes earlier the same day, officer LoGiudice was acquitted, prompting Howell’s supporters to yell “No justice, no peace” as they walked out of the courtroom in protest after the verdict was announced.“What they both have in common is they were both individuals who committed petty offenses in the world of criminal defense,” Marion said. “These are not high felony crimes…we are talking about a bag of marijuana and a bag in a car.”Howell’s case came amid a wave of police brutality cases nationwide that have highlighted distrust between minority communities and law enforcement.“We all know race definitely comes into play and its also a huge problem that whether or not you want to say race didn’t come into play, that’s fine, it says to me that the federal prosecutor’s office is the one that should be prosecuting these cases and looking at these cases,” Marion said.Loeb spent three years in prison after pleading guilty to burglarizing several cars in Suffolk, one of which was Burke’s department-issued SUV. Taken from the SUV was Burke’s duffel bag, which contained Burke’s gun belt, ammunition, sex toys and pornography—the latter of which served as the motivation for the assault on Loeb, federal prosecutors said.Police swarmed Loeb’s mother’s home in Smithtown in December 2012 and took him into custody. Federal prosecutors said Burke entered the house and retrieved the duffel bag—an unusual occurrence, prosecutors said, given Burke’s status as a victim in the case. Burke then entered the interrogation room where Loeb was held and allegedly beat him. Afterward, prosecutors said, he used his power to silence any witnesses and pressured one detective to lie under oath.Although their shared experiences have not caused them to hate the police, Loeb and Howell said, they remain wary of law enforcement’s motives.“I’m concerned for me and my mother’s safety,” Loeb said. “Chief Burke is a very powerful man, he’s got a lot of connections in Suffolk County, Nassau County, Long Island…I worry for my mother every day I worry for me, and I look over my shoulder everywhere I go…I don’t feel comfortable in Suffolk County.”Howell echoed the sentiment.“It’s not that I hate police officers or anything but there’s definitely some police officers that are bad and that are doing crimes and they’re not being punished for it,” Howell said. “I’m scared sometimes when I’m driving or in the car and the police are behind me. And I’m just scared that I don’t know what they can do next.”
For all the jokes about baby boomers having to eat dog food in retirement, it’s beginning to look like millennials will be lucky to afford even the store brand.The problem is their student debt.Experts have worried for some time about the impact millennials’ historically high levels of debt (currently averaging $31,000 at graduation) could have on their retirement savings.Now, in a paper released this week, the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College has attempted to quantify the problem. And the result isn’t pretty.The center calculates what it calls the National Retirement Risk Index (NRRI), an estimate of how many households won’t be able to maintain their standard of living after they retire. The index has been rising steadily since the early 1980s, starting at 31% in 1983 and peaking at 53% in 2010. As of 2013, the most recent year available, it stands at 52%. continue reading » 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Finding Salmonella at the food processing plant suggests that the contamination occurred before the product reached consumers, the FDA said in a press release. Yesterday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said the outbreak strain, S enterica serovar Tennessee, had been identified in nine opened peanut butter jars. Carvel Peanut Butter Topping in 6-lb, 10-oz cans. The topping was an ingredient in several Carvel ice cream products, including Chocolate Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Treasure, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Sundae Dasher, and custom products such as peanut butter flavored ice cream in ice cream cakes. The FDA also said ConAgra has extended its recall of all Peter Pan brands and Great Value peanut butter with the number 2111 in the product code on the lid to products made since December 2005. The earlier recall only involved products made since May 2006. J. Hungerford Smith Peanut Butter Dessert Topping in 6-lb, 10-oz cans. The topping is used in retail outlets and restaurants throughout the United States, but is not available to the public for direct purchase. See also: Sonic Brand Ready-To-Use Peanut Butter Topping in 6-lb, 10.5-oz cans. Sonic outlets used the product in peanut butter shakes and sundaes. Salmonella outbreaks involving peanut butter are rare. Documented episodes include a 1996 Australian outbreak that sickened 15 people and a 1994-95 outbreak in Israel and Wales that was traced to contaminated peanut-buttercoated snacks and affected about 2,200 people, mostly children. In its investigation, the FDA also discovered that ConAgra sent bulk Peter Pan peanut butter to a plant in Humboldt, Tenn., that used the product to make three peanut butter toppings. They are part of the original Peter Pan recall and are no longer being sold, but the FDA said consumers might still have the products in their homes. They include: Mar 1 FDA press releasehttp://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2007/NEW01574.html The Salmonella outbreak began in August and is ongoing, according to the CDC and FDA, which announced the outbreak and voluntary product recall on Feb 14. S enterica typically causes fever and nonbloody diarrhea that resolves in a week. Mar 1, 2007 (CIDRAP News) Investigators have found Salmonella enterica in samples collected at a Sylvester, Ga., ConAgra plant that made the Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter linked to an illness outbreak involving 370 people in 42 states, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today.
Cycling tourism or cycling tourism is a form of sustainable tourism that has been developing more and more in recent years in almost all countries. In addition to including day trips that regular tourists or locals take during their holidays or on weekends, it also applies to long-distance cycling on cycling routes.On the topic of cycling tourism as part of the European Mobility Week, which is held in Croatia every year from 16 to 22 September, MEP Davor Škrlec organized two panel discussions in Koprivnica and Zagreb on sustainable urban mobility and cycling tourism, in cooperation with German Member of the European Parliament Michael Cramer (Greens / ESS) and representatives of local authorities and the Ministry of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia.MP Michael Cramer is the initiator of the cycling tourism projectand EuroVelo13 and the author of the book “European Bike Trail – Iron Curtain” in which it connects sustainable tourism with European history and culture. The trail is more than 10 km long and passes through 400 different countries, of which 20 are EU member states, including Croatia. “Cyclotourism is very developed in some regions of the European Union, while there are also regions in which cycling tourism is not recognized at all and as such does not exist. This wide range shows how important the involvement of local, regional and national authorities is. With its very diverse landscape, cultural and historical sights, Croatia has a huge potential in the development of any form of cycling tourism. From what I heard from my Croatian colleagues in the European Parliament, it is going in the right direction because the Croatian National Tourist Board supports projects such as ‘MedCycleTour’ by developing EuroVelo8 – a Mediterranean route that stretches in Croatia from Istria to Dubrovnik. It is important to monitor projects at the interregional level and not to reduce cycling infrastructure at the local and regional level and across national borders. It is a great advantage that such infrastructure can be used for cycling tourism, but also for day trips from the place of residence to work. ” said MP Cramer.Photo: TZ KvarnerThe total economic benefit from cycling tourism in 2013 for all EU Member States was € 513 billion, which is more than € 1000 per capita. According to a 2012 study by the European Parliament, annual income of cycling tourism in the European Union amounted to 44 billion euros, while, for example, the cruiser’s revenue was 39 billion euros. “Cruisers are not a sustainable form of tourism due to the negative impact on the environment and the increasing burden on cities and ports in which they dock, while cycling does not adversely affect the local community and we can develop it throughout the year thus extending the tourist season, which is one of the goals Tourism development strategies of the Republic of Croatia until 2020. Cyclists travel with little luggage and spend a lot more on food as opposed to cruise guests to whom everything is available on board. Such guests require good infrastructure with very little adjustment of the existing tourist offer according to their needs, for example, accommodation adapted to cyclists with supervised parking and the possibility of transporting the bicycle by public transport.”Points out MP Škrlec.Although the European Union has invested billions of euros in major infrastructure projects, smaller infrastructure ventures continue to be patched up at local, regional and national levels. Numerous connections along cross-border rail lines are still missing, as well as between other forms of public transport and bicycle networks between regions, even within a single state, thus hampering the daily mobility of citizens. “The Greens therefore made a proposal to connect the missing roads, the so-called ‘Missing Links’. Guided by the slogan ‘small but powerful’, we analyzed more than 250 cross-border connections in the European Union, focusing mainly on regional roads outside the main corridors. We have managed to include the cycling network in the guidelines of the Trans-European Road Network (TEN-T), which means that they can now be co-financed from the appropriate EU funds. After years of advocacy by regions, civic initiatives and politicians, the European Commission finally took over the idea of ‘Missing Links’ and in July 2017 for the first time decided to set aside € 140 million to fund small-scale cross-border links that do not currently exist. Croatia can also benefit from this initiative. ” concluded MP Cramer.

Napoli’s Dries Mertens is reportedly set to be out for 10 days after picking up an ankle injury against Barcelona. Mertens had opened the scoring in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie with Barcelona but moments before Antoine Griezmann cancelled him out, the Belgian was forced off with injury.
