Heads up, Boston residents: A Northeastern college student who spent time in at least 10 different locations while infected with measles may have exposed others to the highly contagious disease.

The Boston Health Commission on Thursday said the student, who was not identified, was diagnosed with measles on Jan. 8, marking the first confirmed case in the city since October.

Health officials warned that exposures at the university occurred between Jan. 3 and Jan. 6, noting he or she “frequented many locations on campus, including dormitories, dining hall and classrooms.”

The student also visited various off-campus locations on the following days:

Friday, January 3rd 

  •  Logan International Airport Terminal E 

Saturday, January 4th

  •  Blick Art Materials, 333 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston, MA 02115 
  • Tatte Bakery & Café at the Marino Center, 369 Huntington Avenue
  • Wollaston Market in the Marino Center, 369 Huntington Avenue  

Sunday, January 5th 

  • CVS, 231 Massachusetts Avenue

Monday, January 6th  

  • Rebecca’s Café at Churchill Hall, 360 Huntington Avenue
  • AT&T Store, 699 Boylston Street
  • UNIQLO, Newbury 341 Newbury Street
  • Brandy Melville, 351 Newbury Street
  • Amelia’s Taqueria, 1076 Boylston Street

Health officials warned those exposed could become ill up to 21 days after exposure, or Jan. 24 through Jan. 27.

Measles is a highly contagious virus that spreads through the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes. Others can contract measles when they breathe the contaminated air or touch a contaminated surface, and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth.

“Infected people can spread measles to others from four days before through four days after the rash appears,” says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The MMR vaccine can protect both individuals and other people from contracting the virus. Young children are typically most at risk of contracting measles. The CDC recommends children get two doses of the MMR vaccination, but the first dose is typically given to children when they are between 12 and 15 months old, with the second occurring between ages 4 and 6.

Pompeo Imposes Sanctions on Iran, Sticking to Assertion That U.S. Faced Imminent Threat

Westlake Legal Group 10dc-attacks-sub2-facebookJumbo Pompeo Imposes Sanctions on Iran, Sticking to Assertion That U.S. Faced Imminent Threat United States Politics and Government United States International Relations Trump, Donald J Iran Embargoes and Sanctions Defense and Military Forces

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration slapped another round of sanctions on Iran on Friday and, brushing aside demands from Democrats for evidence, elaborated on its assertions that the decision to kill a top Iranian commander was justified by an imminent threat to United States embassies and other American interests.

“We had specific information on an imminent threat,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a news conference at the White House. “And those threats included attacks on U.S. Embassies. Period, full stop.”

Mr. Pompeo stopped short of repeating what President Trump said a day earlier about a specific plot against the American Embassy in Baghdad, but dismissed criticism, including from members of Congress, that the administration had failed to share any intelligence that backs up its case for the killing early Friday of Maj Gen. Qassim Suleimani in an airstrike.

“I don’t know exactly which minute,” Mr. Pompeo said. “We don’t know exactly which day it would have been executed, but it was very clear, Qassim Suleimani himself was plotting a broad, large-scale attack against American interests and those attacks were imminent.”

Mr. Pompeo said information about the threat had been shared with members of Congress, contradicting some members of both parties who said they had received few specifics. Lawmakers from both parties described the briefings as historical lectures as opposed to the typical presentation about classified matters. One lawmaker said the information was “something you could go on Wikipedia and get. It was that basic.”

Asked how he defined an imminent threat, Mr. Pompeo replied: “This was going to happen. And American lives were at risk. And we would have been culpably negligent, as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff said, we would have been culpably negligent had we not recommended to the president he take this action on Qassim Suleimani.”

Mr. Pompeo spoke about the threats after he and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced the latest round of economic sanctions on Iran. The sanctions were the first substantive response by the United States since Iran launched missiles this week at American forces in Iraq.

Iran is already under crippling sanctions from the United States and the latest round was narrowly targeted at industries including steel, construction, textiles and mining. They also apply to eight senior Iranian officials who were involved in a recent ballistic missile attack on bases where American troops were stationed.

The damage to Iran from the additional measures will be negligible, said Peter Harrell, a sanctions expert at the Center for a New American Security. “When it comes to putting materially more economic pressure on Iran, the Trump administration is something of a victim of its own success — and I think we are reaching the end of the road for what ‘maximum pressure’ can achieve when it comes to Iran’s economy,” Mr. Harrell said.

One area of Iran’s economy where the sanctions could have an impact is deterring investment from nations like China and Russia, said Ryan Fayhee, a sanctions expert at the law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed.

Mr. Fayhee said the latest round of penalties appeared intended to tamp down the situation with Iran. And the Trump administration does not have a lot of other options for how to respond unless it publicly discloses the justifications for killing General Suleimani, he said.

“This attempt to de-escalate could avoid the need to build domestic and international support for further military action — that would only come with a public disclosure the underlying factual support for strike targeting Suleimani,” said Mr. Fayhee, who previously worked on sanctions issues at the Justice Department’s national security division.

Mr. Fayhee said the administration could also ask the United Nations to pursue sanctions, but doing so would require the United States to publicly share intelligence that justified the strike.

In December, the Trump administration slapped new sanctions on the largest shipping company in Iran and a major airline. The United States believes both companies had roles in transporting material to ballistic missiles and nuclear programs. And in June, the Trump administration imposed sanctions meant to prevent top Iranian officials from using the international banking system — a retaliatory move in response to Tehran’s attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

The newest round of sanctions was the latest move in the weekslong clashes between Washington and Tehran that started in late December when Iran attacked an Iraqi compound, killing an American civilian contractor.

The United States responded by striking Iranian-backed militia in Iraq, which drew outrage from pro-Iranians who then stormed the American Embassy compound in Baghdad, chanting “Death to America.”

Three days later, an American airstrike near the Baghdad airport took out Iran’s most powerful commander. Less than a week later, Iran responded by attacking two bases in Iraq where American troops were stationed. No Americans were killed.

Pelosi Alerts House to Be Ready to Send Impeachment Articles Next Week

Westlake Legal Group 10dc-impeach-facebookJumbo Pelosi Alerts House to Be Ready to Send Impeachment Articles Next Week Ukraine Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi alerted lawmakers on Friday that she would move next week to transmit articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate and prompt a historic trial over charges that the president abused his office and obstructed Congress.

In a letter to colleagues Friday morning, the speaker moved to end a weekslong impasse over the impeachment process that had left the president’s fate in limbo. She did not announce the members of the team she will ask to manage the case, but said the House should be ready to vote to appoint them sometime next week.

“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate,” Ms. Pelosi wrote after lawmakers departed the Capitol for the weekend. “I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further.”

Once the House votes and the articles are transmitted, the Senate’s proceeding, only the third impeachment trial of a sitting president in American history, will begin promptly — as soon as Wednesday based on Ms. Pelosi’s timeline.

“In an impeachment trial, every senator takes an oath to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws,’ Ms. Pelosi wrote. “Every senator now faces a choice: to be loyal to the president or the Constitution.”

The Democratic-led House impeached Mr. Trump on Dec. 18 in a largely party-line vote charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in connection with a scheme to pressure Ukraine to publicly investigate his domestic political rivals.

Since then, the speaker has elected not to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate in an unusual attempt to pressure the Republican-led chamber to guarantee it would compel additional witnesses and documents Mr. Trump shielded during the House’s inquiry. A trial with no new evidence, Democrats have argued, would fundamentally abet that president’s cover-up.

But Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said this week that he had secured the votes he needs to begin a trial on his own terms, without any commitment to Democrats to call witnesses or admitting new evidence. Mr. McConnell has repeatedly condemned the House’s case as rushed and woefully inadequate, without addressing the behavior it alleges by Mr. Trump, and has made clear he would like to bring about a speedy acquittal.

For weeks now, Mr. McConnell “has been engaged in tactics of delay in presenting transparency, disregard for the American people’s interest for a fair trial and dismissal of the facts,” Ms. Pelosi wrote in her letter.

In recent days, Ms. Pelosi found herself beating back questions about her strategy amid growing pressure from Republicans and some Democrats eager for the proceeding to move forward. But as recently as Thursday, she told reporters that she would keep her own counsel and refused to share details about when she would act beyond saying it would be “soon.”

She had asked once more for Mr. McConnell to share the precise rules for a Senate trial so she could select her prosecutorial team. He declined, and the speaker decided on Friday to move ahead anyway without a concession.

Despite winning no commitment from Mr. McConnell, Democrats argue that the strategy did have payoffs. During the intervening three weeks between the House vote and Ms. Pelosi’s announcement, relevant new documents that Mr. Trump suppressed have come to light, suggesting that there is additional evidence to support the charges the House brought. And this week, a pivotal witness who declined to cooperate in the House impeachment inquiry, the former national security adviser John R. Bolton, said he would be willing to testify at the trial if senators subpoenaed him.

Still, Ms. Pelosi had come under mounting pressure to move the case along. Republicans spent weeks accusing her of hypocrisy for waiting to prosecute Mr. Trump after months of insisting that he posed an urgent threat to the integrity of the 2020 election that must be addressed with a speedy impeachment vote. Democrats privately worried that argument could gain traction with the general public, undermining months of hard work in the House.

Though presidential impeachment precedent is scant — the House has only charged two past presidents, Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson — Ms. Pelosi’s move was unusual.

The House impeached Mr. Trump after months of investigation and testimony from officials in his own administration who described a scheme to pressure Ukraine to publicly investigate the president’s political rivals. The Democratic inquiry concluded that Mr. Trump withheld about $400 million in vital military aid for Ukraine and a White House meeting with its leader to try to exert leverage over Ukraine’s president to publicize the investigations, effectively asking a foreign power to help his 2020 re-election campaign.

The pressure campaign resulted in a charge of abuse of power. The House also charged Mr. Trump with obstructing Congress, based on his blanket blockade against testimony by administration officials and refusal to turn over documents requested by the House impeachment investigators.

GOP Rep. Doug Collins apologizes for saying Democrats are ‘in love with terrorists’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6121437448001_6121438229001-vs GOP Rep. Doug Collins apologizes for saying Democrats are 'in love with terrorists' fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox news fnc/politics fnc Brooke Singman article 6d348953-14e7-5e1d-8f8c-bc73b04aea4a

Republican Rep. Doug Collins apologized for claiming that Democrats were “in love with terrorists” amid heightened tensions with Iran, saying Friday he does not actually believe that.

“Let me be clear: I do not believe Democrats are in love with terrorists, and I apologize for what I said earlier this week,” Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted Friday.

TRUMP SAYS IRAN ‘APPEARS TO BE STANDING DOWN,’ MISSILE STRIKES RESULTED IN NO CASUALTIES

Collins, R-Ga., was referring to comments he made Wednesday night after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., scheduled a vote to limit President Trump’s military action toward Iran.

“They are in love with terrorists,” Collins said Wednesday on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” “We see that they mourn [Gen. Qassem] Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani. That’s a problem.”

But after harsh criticism, Collins sent a series of tweets walking back his remark.

“The comment I made on Wednesday evening was in response to a question about the War Powers Resolution being introduced in the House and House Democrats’ attempt to limit the president’s authority,” he explained.

“As someone who served in Iraq in 2008, I witnessed firsthand the brutal death of countless soldiers who were torn to shreds by this vicious terrorist,” he continued. “Soleimani was nothing less than an evil mastermind who viciously killed and wounded thousands of Americans.”

“These images will live with me for the rest of my life, but that does not excuse my response on Wednesday evening,” he said. “I remain committed to working with my colleagues in Congress and with my fellow citizens to keep all Americans safe.”

The House voted this week to approve a War Powers Resolution, mostly along party lines, to limit Trump’s military action amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

The resolution is non-binding but is meant to reassert congressional authority and rebuke Trump’s decision to take out Soleimani in a drone strike last Friday while he traveled to an airport in Baghdad, Iraq. Trump did not consult with congressional leaders ahead of the attack that killed the Iranian military leader and afterward sent Congress a notification explaining the rationale but kept it classified.

The resolution “requires the president to consult with Congress ‘in every possible instance’ before introducing United States Armed Forces into hostilities.”

The measure also aimed to handcuff Trump when it comes to future strikes.

HOUSE PASSES WAR POWERS RESOLUTION IN REBUKE OF TRUMP’S ACTIONS AGAINST IRAN

The resolution was widely panned by Republican lawmakers in the House, who called the measure a political move against the president and accused Democrats of empowering Iran by condemning the White House’s airstrike.

“For the party that claims they care about the Constitution, Democrats might want to brush up on their facts,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. “If they did, they’d realize their actions today are shameful and are embarrassing even by the low standards they set in their impeachment inquiry.”

Trump Administration Announces More Economic Sanctions Against Iran

Westlake Legal Group  Trump Administration Announces More Economic Sanctions Against Iran

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (left) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin answer questions about the new round of sanctions against Iran.

Evan Vucci/AP

The White House announced Friday it is imposing additional economic sanctions against Iran, including officials in the Iranian government.

The penalties, promised earlier this week by President Trump, “will cut off billions of dollars of support to the Iranian regime,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

The restrictions are a response to Iran’s missile attack on Ain al-Assad air base in Iraq, where U.S. and coalition service members are stationed. There were no injuries in the attack, but some of its facilities were damaged.

Iran fired the missiles after the U.S. killed Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in a drone strike.

Speaking in the White House press briefing room alongside Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Mnuchin said Trump is issuing an executive order authorizing sanctions against “any individual owning, operating, trading with or assisting sectors of the Iranian economy, including construction, manufacturing, textiles and mining.”

In addition, Mnuchin outlined 17 specific sanctions against Iran’s largest steel and iron manufacturers, along with three entities based in the Seychelles and a vessel involved in the transfer of products.

Other targets of the sanctions include the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, the commander of the Basij militia of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, and other senior leaders close to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The restrictions limit the targets’ ability to interact with the U.S. financial system, do business with Americans, access dollars in some cases or travel to the United States.

Maximum pressure

Pompeo said Iranian officials have carried out Khamenei’s “terrorist plots and destabilizing campaigns across the Middle East and around the world.”

Pompeo said the goal of the sanctions “is to deny the regime the resources to conduct its destructive foreign policy,” adding: “We want Iran to simply behave like a normal nation.”

These are just the latest sanctions the Trump administration has placed on Iran in an effort to punish Tehran for promoting instability and terrorist activities in the Middle East and to deter it from future attacks.

Trump abrogated America’s involvement with a multinational agreement concluded under President Barack Obama in which global economic pressure was relaxed in exchange for Iran’s commitment not to enrich nuclear fuel for a weapon.

Iran held to the terms of that agreement, but Trump and Pompeo objected to what they viewed as its generosity and what they called its failure to constrain Iran’s other malign activities and ballistic missile program. So Trump walked away and reapplied sanctions and other restrictions with the aim of applying “maximum pressure.”

Iranian leaders have complained about what they called American duplicity and also mocked each new round of sanctions, arguing that past a certain point, such restrictions become meaningless.

Mnuchin insisted on Friday that the sanctions are having their intended effect.

“I think we have 100 percent confidence and we are consistent in our view that the economic sanctions are working,” he said. Without the sanctions, “literally Iran would have tens of billions of dollars,” which he said would be used to promote terrorist attacks throughout the region.

Pompeo said the sanctions have caused Iran “big, challenging problems.”

He suggested Iran must choose between underwriting groups such as Hezbollah or Hamas, “or do you allow your people to have the opportunity to live the life they want and grow your economy?”

Boeing 737 Max Supplier Cuts Jobs as Fallout From Grounding Spreads

The company that supplies Boeing with the fuselage for its 737 Max jet said Friday that it would lay off around 2,800 employees at a facility in Kansas, as the economic impact of Boeing’s decision to halt the jet’s production ripples through the worldwide aerospace supply chain.

The company, Spirit AeroSystems, said it was making the cuts at a plant in Wichita in response to Boeing’s temporary halt on manufacturing of the Max last month. The jet has been grounded for 10 months in the wake of two crashes that killed 346 people

“Spirit is taking this action because of the 737 MAX production suspension and ongoing uncertainty regarding the timing of when production will resume and the level of production when it does resume,” Spirit said in a statement.

Boeing purchases the parts that go into the Max from 600 companies, including major corporations like General Electric, which supplies engines for the airplanes, and lesser-known manufacturers that specialize in components like lighting systems and seats.

This is not the first time that the companies in Boeing’s supply chain have felt the effects of the uncertainty surrounding the Max. After Boeing said in April that it would slow production of the Max from 52 airplanes a month to 42, the chief executive of Spirit AeroSystems, Tom Gentile, told investors that Spirit would freeze some hiring, reduce overtime and decrease its use of contractors.

And in June, Spirit moved about 6,000 employees in Kansas and Oklahoma to a four-day workweek, resulting in a 20 percent pay cut that lasted until the end of August. Shares of the company fell 2.5 percent on Friday.

Man hacks ‘Sleeping Beauty’ showing with on-screen marriage proposal

Sometimes, true love is right in front of you.

While Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” fell for the prince who awoke her, one of the movie’s superfans was recently surprised with a marriage proposal from her boyfriend during a showing of the classic flick.

Last week, Dr. Sthuthi David said “yes” to her longtime beau Lee Loechler, after he popped the question during a rerun of her all-time favorite movie at Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, Mass. And to the shock of the bride-to-be, Loechler, a filmmaker, worked with Australia-based illustrator Kayla Coombs for six months to create a special new ending of the movie, casting himself as Prince Phillip and David as Princess Aurora, Today reported.

BRIDE DOESN’T WANT SISTER AS MAID OF HONOR BECAUSE SHE’LL BE WEARING ARM SLING

In adorable footage of the big moment – which had amassed over 2.4 million views on YouTube as of Friday morning – a secret camera captured David looking confused from her front-row seat as she watched one the 1959 film’s pivotal scenes.

This time around, the prince kissed the sleeping princess — but he looked a whole lot like Loechler. The animated royal then pulled out a diamond ring, which made the on-screen Princess Sthuthi smile. The real Loechler then took over, expertly catching a real-life ring box thrown from behind the movie screen.

Dropping down on one knee, Loechler asked David to be his wife. The audience, which unbeknownst to David was filled with their friends, family and a few good-natured strangers, clapped and cheered.

“I love you with my whole heart. Including all of its ventricles, atriums, valves,” Loechler said, clarifying to the audience that his partner was a cardiologist. “Sthuthi David, MD, will you live happily ever after with me?”

Overcome with emotion, David said yes, as the film’s iconic “Once Upon a Dream” played in the background.
