Social media-fueled coronavirus rumor at USC prompts response from school

The University of Southern California (USC) was forced to respond following an erroneous social media-fueled claim that a student was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus that has now killed some 132 people and sickened nearly 6,000 others across the world.

The rumor began late Monday night in a reply to a post on the university’s Twitter account, the Los Angeles Daily News reported. The rumor quickly took hold on the social media platform, leading to hundreds of tweets and even a petition to cancel class amid the alleged “outbreak” at the university. As of this writing, nearly 11,000 people had signed the call to action.

But USC quickly responded, shutting down rumors that seemingly cropped up after an unnamed student living at the off-campus Lorenzo Apartments was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

“We want to provide information about reports that a student was transported by ambulance from off-campus housing this evening with novel coronavirus,” the statement reads. “Because of student and patient privacy laws, we are unable to talk about any specific individuals. However, we can confirm that there are no students or residents from the off-campus Lorenzo Apartments diagnosed or under evaluation for the 2019 novel coronavirus. Students can be transported by ambulance for a variety of health conditions.”

School officials reminded students that any news about coronavirus infections “occur through local public health authorities and will be communicated to the community,” and reiterated that “there is no known connection between affected individuals and USC.”

There are currently five confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, which began at a live animal and seafood market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, in the U.S. Two of those cases have been confirmed in Southern California — one in Los Angeles County and the other in Orange County.

Despite the disease reaching the U.S., federal health officials maintain that the public’s risk is low. In the meantime, here’s how to protect yourself from coronavirus.

More voters believe Bernie Sanders is the most honest candidate of all Democratic contenders, poll finds

Westlake Legal Group kIHpL65h5-p3e4h5nO1k6WY6CmnneKKUx_lvqHztx7U More voters believe Bernie Sanders is the most honest candidate of all Democratic contenders, poll finds r/politics

It really is a huge factor I was listening to NPR this morning and heard Warren come on regarding the impeachment proceedings. The topic segued into her positions on medicare-for-all, and hownher stance shifted from supporting Bernie’s position of abolishing paid insurance to rolling out a parallel single payer system and “hoping” voters will see the benefits.

This isn’t itself a bad idea as it allows a rollout to occur organically and for the false narrative against M4A to be eroded by good experiences, but when she was asked about her long term agenda, the “choice” to buy health care or to join into a federal plan, she constantly dodged describing her long term plan as supporting an M4A-exclusive system. She bent around it several times. Going back to “we’ll offer a choice, a taste and let the voters decide” but would not admit outright that her grand scheme seems to be a push for exclusively M4A.

This is fine. It’s a plan. The subtext of her conversations makes it clear that she does share the same long term agenda as Bernie, but the apparent dishonesty about how she intends to sell it, all but outright saying “I want M4A” casts doubt on her sincerity or her trust in her base. She’s masking words to appeal to moderates, and that’s a misstep.

Florida police issue Amber Alert for missing newborn last seen at home where 3 women found shot dead

A triple-homicide investigation in South Florida prompted police Tuesday to issue an Amber Alert for a one-week-old baby boy who was last seen at the same Miami-area home where three women were found shot dead.

TEXAS POLICE ID MAN SEEN ON SURVEILLANCE RESCUING BABY FROM EL PASO WALMART SHOOTING

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert Tuesday seeking information about 1-week old Andrew Caballeiro. He is believed to be with his father, 49-year-old Ernesto Caballeiro. The elder Caballeiro had not been named as a suspect as of early Tuesday.

Miami-Dade Police also asked the public for help locating the father and son, sharing additional pictures of the pair.

“We are seeking the assistance of the community to locate Ernesto Caballeiro and his newborn infant son, out of concern for their welfare. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to contact 9-1-1,” Miami-Dade Police tweeted.

On Monday, three women were found dead from fatal gunshot wounds inside a Miami-Dade County home, The Associated Press reported, citing the Miami Herald. Police said the elder Caballeiro knew at least one of the victims, but any further connection is unclear. Their names have not been released.

The father is believed to be traveling in a 2001 White Chevy Express with the Florida tag HETY13. The van may have decals saying “Nesty School Services” and “Caution: Transporting Children.” The alert urged the public not to approach the vehicle and instead contact law enforcement immediately by calling Miami Dade Police at 305-471-2400 or 9-1-1.

Boeing Expects 737 Max Costs Will Surpass $18 Billion

Westlake Legal Group 29boeing1-facebookJumbo Boeing Expects 737 Max Costs Will Surpass $18 Billion Company Reports Calhoun, David L Boeing Company Boeing 737 Max Groundings and Safety Concerns (2019) Aviation Accidents, Safety and Disasters Airlines and Airplanes

Boeing on Wednesday said the costs associated with the grounding of the 737 Max were likely to surpass $18 billion, a significant increase over earlier forecasts.

The new estimate, announced during Boeing’s quarterly earnings report, is the company’s most recent approximation of just how expensive it will be to return the Max to service, compensate airline customers and restart the shuttered 737 factory.

Boeing continues to grapple with the fallout from the crashes of two Max jets in 2018 and 2019, which killed 346 people, leading to the worldwide grounding of the plane in March. In addition to the rising costs, the company is contending with a new chief executive, the temporary shutdown of the 737 factory and a range of challenges in other parts of the business.

Boeing on Wednesday said that the costs associated with shutting down and restarting the factory would amount to some $4 billion. The decision to temporarily halt production of the Max was only made last month, and Boeing had not previously given guidance on what the move would cost.

The company also said that the cost of compensating airlines that have suffered lost sales as a result of the grounding of the Max was now expected to reach $8.3 billion, up from a previous estimate of $5.6 billion. That figure represents a mixture of cash payments to airlines, as well as discounts on future sales.

And Boeing said that as a result of the grounding, which has lasted nearly a year now, it expected the overall cost to produce the 737 Max to rise to $6.3 billion in the years ahead, up from an earlier estimate of $3.6 billion.

In total, the anticipated costs now equal more than $18.6 billion, or nearly 20 percent of Boeing’s annual sales before the Max was grounded.

The Max crisis continued to weigh on the company’s financial results. Revenue for the quarter was $17.9 billion, down 37 percent from the same time a year earlier, before the jet was grounded.

Boeing also said it would incur a charge of $410 million as a result of its botched rocket launch late last year, when a space capsule it designed for NASA failed to reach the correct orbit.

This was the company’s first quarterly earnings report with David L. Calhoun at the helm, following the ouster of the previous chief executive, Dennis A. Muilenburg.

Since taking over this month, Mr. Calhoun has tried to set himself apart from Mr. Muilenburg, who was pushed out after alienating airline customers and the Federal Aviation Administration with overly optimistic projections about when the Max would return to service.

“We recognize we have a lot of work to do,” Mr. Calhoun said in a statement. “We are focused on returning the 737 Max to service safely and restoring the long-standing trust that the Boeing brand represents with the flying public. We are committed to transparency and excellence in everything we do.”

There is still no precise timeline for the return of the Max. Last week, Boeing said it did not expect regulators to approve the plane to fly until June or July, though that estimate was conservative. If regulators do not find any additional problems with the plane, the Max could return to service before then, though new issues cropped up earlier in the process.

The company has enjoyed rare bits of good news in recent weeks. It successfully completed the first flight test of the 777X, its new wide-body jet. And the trade deal that the White House struck with China included a commitment for the sale of new American aircraft to Chinese customers.

Yet Boeing still faces enormous challenges. The grounding of the Max is costing the company many billions of dollars, and costs are still rising. The fatal crashes and a cascade of damning revelations have badly damaged Boeing’s reputation, and the company’s own research shows 40 percent of regular travelers are unwilling to fly the Max. Other Boeing programs, including its work for NASA and the United States military, are behind schedule.

The Max is Boeing’s most important product, representing hundreds of billions of dollars in expected future sales. But just over a year after it was introduced in 2017, a Max crashed off the coast of Indonesia, after a new automated system triggered based on data from a faulty sensor. Less than five months later, a second Max crashed in Ethiopia under similar circumstances, leading to the worldwide grounding.

That has thrust Boeing into the biggest crisis in its history and led to the temporary shuttering of its 737 factory in Renton, Wash. Boeing has developed a software update and has been working with regulators to win approval to return the plane to service. But the grounding is now likely to last a year.

British police use Dolly Parton Challenge to find wanted suspects

British police jumped on the social media bandwagon Tuesday by taking part in the viral Dolly Parton Challenge, creating memes of suspects wanted for a number of offenses, including burglary.

UK’S BORIS JOHNSON WELCOMES REPLACING OBAMA-ERA IRAN NUCLEAR AGREEMENT WITH ‘TRUMP DEAL’

Cleveland Police UK in northeastern England shared four images of 32-year-old Scott Mizsei, deeming each appropriate for his profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram or Tinder.

“Have you seen wanted man Scott Mizsei, 32? He is wanted in connection with a number of offences including aggravated burglary,” the tweet said. “Do not approach him if you see him & call 101 with info RE his whereabouts. Thanks @DurhamPolice for inspiring our post!”

The department nodded to the Durham Constabulary in the neighboring county, which used the Dolly Parton Challenge last week to ask the public for help finding Paul Bishop.

“Have you seen Paul Bishop? We’d like to speak to him in connection with a suspected burglary which occurred in December,” the tweet said. “If you have seen him or know where he is, please call Peterlee Police team on 101.”

Police departments on both sides of the pond in the United Kingdom, the United States and even Canada have participated in the social media craze by sharing images of police dogs in their K9 units.

Last Friday, Durham Police K9 showed off police dog Spike, tagging Cleveland Police UK and NYPD Dog Section to do the same. Police departments in Sarasota, Fla., Irving, Texas, Fort Collins, Colo., and Vancouver, Canada all have shared four-way templates of dogs who help them protect and serve.

Trump scorches Bolton, says ‘fired’ hawk would have started ‘World War Six’

In a pair of white-hot tweets Wednesday morning, President Trump slammed John Bolton over the recent leak of details from his forthcoming book that complicated the president’s ongoing impeachment trial — and needled his former national security adviser over his notoriously hawkish reputation on foreign policy.

“For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, ‘begged’ me for a non Senate [sic] approved job, which I gave him despite many saying ‘Don’t do it, sir,’ takes the job, mistakenly says ‘Libyan Model’ on T.V., and … many more mistakes of judgement [sic], gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book,” Trump tweeted. “All Classified National Security. Who would do this?”

GOP DEVELOPS AGGRESSIVE ‘PLAN B’ IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, AS SEVERAL DEMS APPEAR TO SUPPORT ACQUITTAL: SOURCE

Trump’s comments come after a New York Times report earlier this week said Bolton wrote in his book that Trump linked aid for Ukraine to his request for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate 2020 rival Joe Biden and his family for corruption. Those developments are at the heart of the impeachment trial.

Democrats have said that connection was an abuse of power aimed at boosting Trump’s reelection prospects. Trump’s defense team has said that there was no such connection, and even if there was, Trump had good reason to think the Bidens should have been investigated for corruption and that such a “quid pro quo” is common in U.S. foreign policy.

A handful of moderate Republican senators, including Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Mitt Romney, R-Utah and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, have expressed interest in hearing from witnesses in the impeachment trial — and especially Bolton, after the book leak — to the chagrin of Trump and GOP leadership. Democrats would need four GOP defections to call witnesses.

WHOOPS: BIDEN CAMP TOUTS UKRAINE ACTIVIST WHO CALLED HUNTER BIDEN’S ACTIONS ‘VERY BAD’

Bolton has indicated that he would testify before the Senate impeachment trial if subpoenaed, but the Republican leadership is doing its best to prevent that from happening.

Despite the fact Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., privately said early Tuesday that he wasn’t sure there were enough Republican votes to block witnesses in the impeachment trial, Tuesday night, a Senate leadership source told Fox News that Republicans were assessing two options to prevent witnesses, in a vote likely to happen near the end of this week.

One plan is to amend any resolution calling for a particular witness to also include a package of witnesses that assuredly wouldn’t win enough support in the Senate. For example, if the Democrats seek to call Bolton, Republicans might subpoena Hunter Biden over his lucrative board position in Ukraine, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., over his inconsistent statements concerning his panel’s contacts with the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment probe.

Another option, the congressional leadership source told Fox News, is for the White House to assert executive privilege to block witnesses, including Bolton. The administration could head to court to obtain an emergency injunction against his testimony, citing national security concerns.

GOP Rep. Doug Collins confirms bid for Georgia Senate

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6126855374001_6126857897001-vs GOP Rep. Doug Collins confirms bid for Georgia Senate Tyler Olson fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/georgia fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/2020-senate-races fox news fnc/politics fnc article 314104c5-7493-5dfc-812e-db30201bcf74

Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., confirmed on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that he will run for U.S. Senate in a November special election, challenging incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed to her seat last year by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Politico originally reported Collins was planning to announce a run, but Collins confirmed his plans on Fox News.

Collins will join a special election field that includes Loeffler and two Democrats, with a third Democrat likely to announce a run as well. The special election rules pit all candidates against each other – regardless of party – with a runoff in January if no candidate secures a majority of votes.

Collins’ entrance into the race makes a runoff far more likely, which could potentially decide the balance of the Senate.

Collins, a staunch supporter of President Trump during the impeachment saga, is likely to try to ride the president’s popularity within the Republican Party to victory. Trump favored Collins over Loeffler last year when Gov. Kemp was deciding who would replace the retiring Sen. Johnny Isakson, also a Republican.

Loeffler, a wealthy co-owner of the WNBA franchise Atlanta Dream, has said she will spend $20 million to retain her seat.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
