Ticket information for Kobe Bryant memorial service announced

Westlake Legal Group Kobe-Bryant6 Ticket information for Kobe Bryant memorial service announced Mariah Haas fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/sports/nba/los-angeles-lakers fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/person/kobe-bryant fox news fnc/sports fnc article 5a866627-8d31-5bf7-afa3-3b0ab5c13499

Fans hoping to attend the Feb. 24 memorial service for Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles can now register for tickets, the Lakers announced Friday.

Tickets for the event are priced in three tiers: $24.02 each, two for $224, and $224 each — combinations of numbers that represent the No. 24 worn by Bryant over his final ten NBA seasons and the No. 2 worn by Gianna on her youth basketball team.

Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, the Lakers said.

Ticket registration hours were scheduled from 11 a.m. Friday through 10 p.m. Monday through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan system. On Tuesday, registered fans will receive emails with non-transferable personal access codes that will allow them to participate in the public sale on Wednesday morning.

In a move apparently intended to prevent a repeat of the massive crowds that flocked to Staples Center after Bryant’s death, the Lakers said the memorial will not be shown on exterior video screens at the arena or in the adjacent L.A. Live entertainment area.

MEMORIAL HELD FOR COACH, FAMILY KILLED IN BRYANT CRASH

Members of the public without tickets to the memorial were advised not to come near the arena or L.A. Live because they will not be able to enter the area, the team said.

The Lakers’ statement did not include any details about the memorial itself.

Staples Center, known as “the house that Kobe built,” is where the NBA All-Star played most of his storied two-decade career for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others were killed Jan. 26 when the helicopter they were aboard crashed in Calabasas, Calif., as they were flying to a basketball tournament where Gianna was to play with her team.

Bryant and Gianna were buried Feb. 7 at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, Calif. near the family home, according to death certificates.

On Monday, several thousand people came to Angel Stadium of Anaheim to mourn three of the other victims: Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter, Alyssa, who was Gianna’s teammate.

Also killed in the crash were Christina Mauser, who helped Bryant coach the girl’s basketball team, as well as Sarah Chester and her daughter, Payton, another of Gianna’s teammates, and pilot Ara Zobayan.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.

Rare Weedy Seadragons Hatch At California Aquarium

After years of trying, a Southern California aquarium has two very tiny — and very rare — bundles of joy.

Two weedy seadragons recently hatched at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, Calif. The delicate creatures resemble bits of seaweed and are distant cousins of the seahorse. And they’re notoriously difficult to breed.

Birch announced the news on Thursday and is now one of only a few aquariums worldwide to get the finicky animal to reproduce in captivity. Jennifer Nero Moffatt, the aquarium’s senior director of animal care, science and conservation, called it a “momentous occasion.”

“Seadragons are charismatic, sensitive, and require detailed husbandry,” Moffatt said in a statement. “We have spent over 25 years working with these animals and love that we have made the next steps to conserve this delicate species.”

Birch Aquarium says it has bred 13 types of seahorses since 1995 and started its weedy seadragon program because of that track record of success.

The aquarium says the inch-long babies are already feeding on tiny shrimp. They’ll grow to about 18 inches.

It’s not clear whether the newly hatched little ones are male or female — and the Birch says it likely won’t know until they reach sexual maturity in a few years.

The weedy seadragon, or Phyllopteryx taeniolatus, is native to waters off Australia. They have long, thin snouts and small fins that propel them through the water, though they often drift like seaweed.

As part of their mating rituals, the seadragons do a spinning dance, snout to snout — that’s how they transfer eggs from the female to the males.

Like other seahorses, the males carry the eggs after the females deposit them on the male’s spongy tail. The eggs incubate, then hatch in about six weeks.

The fish was once a “near-threatened” species but has since been designated as “least concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. That’s partially because there is little data on the population, according to the Birch Aquarium.

The creatures are especially hard to track because of their rugged and remote habitat along Australia’s southern coast — and weedy seadragons are good at camouflage.

But warming oceans and destructive fishing practices threaten their habitat, creating a greater need for aquariums to breed and study the rare animals, the aquarium said.

But if you’re in Southern California and want to get a glimpse at the teeny-tiny seadragons, don’t get your hopes up. The aquarium says they’ll stay behind-the-scenes and out of the public eye for now.

Deroy Murdock: Democrats don’t have any moderates left — they are all hard-core leftists now

Pundits and political strategists have filled the airwaves with talk of “moderates” who will rescue Democrats from the ascendant Senator Bernie Sanders and his Vermont-style socialism. But the vaunted “moderate lane” lacks one thing: moderates.

Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, former mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., and the rapidly sinking former vice president Joe Biden are hard-core, big-government left-liberals. While they may not be full-blown socialists, the balderdash that they are even vaguely centrist is either desperately uninformed or deliberately dishonest.

NEWT GINGRICH: SANDERS, BUTTIGIEG, BLOOMBERG AND MORE – THE TRUTH ABOUT THE 2020 PRIMARY SEASON SO FAR

Indeed, several legislative scorecards confirm this incredible fact: Sanders’s senatorial vote record repeatedly puts him to the right of Klobuchar and Biden!

The Americans for Democratic Action awarded Sanders a 2018 Liberal Quotient of 100 percent — a perfect left-wing score. The “moderate” Klobuchar tailgated Sanders with a 95 percent rating that year. But in 2017, Sanders scored a 95, with Klobuchar to his left at 100. Biden, for his part, earned an 80 percent Liberal Quotient in 2008, his final year in the Senate. While not as far left as Klobuchar and Sanders, who both hit 100 that year, Biden was much closer to the liberal fast lane than to the middle of the road.

The American Conservative Union bestowed on Sanders a 9 percent rating for 2018 and a lifetime measure of 6.78. Klobuchar was left of Sanders, with a 5 percent rating for that year and 4.70 across her Senate career.

California officials warn against coronavirus-related hate crimes

Westlake Legal Group beb7f4bf-AP20044110764329 California officials warn against coronavirus-related hate crimes Louis Casiano fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/los-angeles fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/health fnc c5c638ba-3b2b-5574-aed5-932fb1a834bf article

Los Angeles leaders warned of bigotry against the Asian community on Thursday after several incidents of bullying and orchestrated hoaxes over the novel coronavirus were reported in the area.

More than 64,000 people have been sickened by the COVID-19 virus and over 1,300 people have died, mostly in mainland China. Los Angeles has only one confirmed case.

“We’re not going to stand for hate,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis told reporters at a news conference.

CHINA’S CORONAVIRUS SURVIVORS MAY FACE MENTAL HURDLES ONCE OUTBREAK ENDS

Fears over the virus have resulted in hoaxes and hostilities against the region’s Asian community, the largest in the United States.

A petition urging schools in the suburb of Alhambra to cancel classes over the virus had 14,000 signatures. A boy of Asian descent needed an MRI after he was bullied and beaten this month at a San Fernando Valley school, said Robin Toma, the executive director of the county’s Human Relations Commission, which works on hate crime prevention, the LAist reported.

In Carson, a flyer with a fake seal of the World Health Organization told residents to avoid Asian-American businesses like Panda Express because of the outbreak, according to Reuters.

Toma said people wearing face masks have also had insults hurled at them. He urged anyone being targeted because of their race to report the incident to authorities.

“We need you to step up and speak out when you see it happening to others,” he said.

China has suffered the vast majority of coronavirus cases since the outbreak first began in the Hubei province in December. There are 15 confirmed cases in the U.S.

There will likely be more cases in the coming weeks, “including among other people recently returned from Wuhan,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday.

Barr Orders Review Of Michael Flynn Case, Heightening Political Interference Concerns

Westlake Legal Group 5e46f6332500005500475912 Barr Orders Review Of Michael Flynn Case, Heightening Political Interference Concerns

Attorney General William Barr has ordered an outside prosecutor to revisit the criminal case against former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to reports from The New York Times and CNN

Barr’s decision represents the latest Justice Department move to scrutinize cases or seek more lenient sentences for President Donald Trump’s allies. Senior DOJ officials earlier this week walked back federal prosecutors’ sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump went on a public tirade. 

In addition to directing a review of Flynn’s case, Barr also has several outside prosecutors looking into other politically sensitive cases and questioning prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington about their investigations, the Times reported. 

Trump has repeatedly attacked legal cases against his associates and supporters, sometimes publicly declaring that charges against them should be dropped or groundlessly claiming that prosecutions were unjust. Trump’s attempts to undermine legal proceedings have led to concern from legal experts and Democratic politicians that he is eroding the rule of law and trying to use the Justice Department for his own political purposes. 

The DOJ leadership’s intervention into Stone’s sentencing resulted in all four federal prosecutors in the trial withdrawing from the case. The prosecutors had recommended on Monday that Stone face seven to nine years in prison for being found guilty of witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia in the 2016 election. Trump, in a Twitter post, quickly blasted the recommendation as unfair.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has asked the DOJ inspector general for an investigation into the department’s response to Trump’s comments. Schumer and other Democratic lawmakers, as well as the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics and the American Bar Association, condemned the meddling in the sentencing.

Barr himself said in a Thursday interview with ABC News that Trump’s tweets on legal matters “make it impossible for me to do my job.” But he also insisted that it wasn’t because of Trump that he intervened in the Stone case, saying, “I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody.”

Flynn initially pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to investigators about his communication with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak shortly before Trump was sworn into office. He agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election, hoping to avoid jail time. But Flynn withdrew his guilty plea last month after the DOJ recommended that he serve up to six months in prison for his crime, accusing him and his legal team of growing hostile and uncooperative.  

Flynn hired a new legal team last year that shifted from cooperating with investigators to a hostile strategy that alleged Flynn was the victim of a bad faith investigation, inept former lawyers and the FBI tampering with his case. A federal judge issued a 92-page ruling in December rejecting Flynn’s accusations against the FBI and prosecutors, saying there was no factual basis for the allegations. 

Conservative media and many Republican officials have championed Flynn, calling for Trump to pardon him. On Tuesday, Trump retweeted a pro-Trump Twitter account suggesting that he grant both Stone and Flynn full pardons.

Ari Fleischer: Trump will tarnish Justice Department if he comments on Roger Stone case again

Westlake Legal Group FleischerFaulkner Ari Fleischer: Trump will tarnish Justice Department if he comments on Roger Stone case again Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/outnumbered-overtime fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 819ecb91-9c39-5cae-8d69-9e6061a49907

Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer doubled down Friday on Attorney General William Barr’s comments criticizing President Trump’s social media comments about Justice Department cases and investigations.

“Presidents should comment on justice matters when it comes to matters of categories of crime,” the former White House press secretary told “Outnumbered Overtime.” “‘We’re not going to go after marijuana possessions. We’re going to go hard and throw the book at gangs.’ These are decisions presidents can make — should make and they should direct the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to follow through.

TRUMP DENIES INTERFERING IN ROGER STONE CASE, STAYS MUM ON POSSIBLE PARDON

“But an individual criminal case, particularly one of an associate of the president, White Houses can tarnish that if they comment on them,” Fleischer added. “So, yes, the president has a role but it’s a broader policy-based role, it is not a specific case role.

“If they comment on a specific case, it can politicize justice,” Fleischer said.

Trump insisted Friday he has a “legal right” to intervene in criminal cases — but has so far chosen not to — amid the ongoing controversy surrounding Barr’s decision to overrule federal prosecutors’ initial sentence recommendation for longtime Trump associate Roger Stone.

“The president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case,” Trump tweeted, quoting Barr’s remarks in an interview with ABC News Thursday. “This doesn’t mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!”

Barr also told ABC that the president’s social media posts made it “impossible for me to do my job.”

“I’m gonna do what I think is right, and you know… I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me,” Barr said at the time.

Barr is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee March 31 to address the handling of the Stone case and other issues.

All four prosecutors withdrew from the Stone case after top DOJ officials moved to soften the initial recommendation that Stone serve between 87 and 108 months in prison. Trump has denied interfering in the case, but has been extremely vocal about it — saying Stone “was treated horribly” and called a initial sentence recommendation “a disgrace.”

Is the novel coronavirus here to stay?

Westlake Legal Group image Is the novel coronavirus here to stay? Madeline Farber fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/health fnc article 667cd9d8-0c6f-5fab-a27e-ce8da0e70287

Could the novel coronavirus one day be as commonplace as the seasonal flu?

Despite rigorous containment efforts, medical experts working to understand the virus, now known as COVID-19, have acknowledged such a possibility — including Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who said this week the virus “is probably with us beyond this season, beyond this year.”

WILL THE CORONAVIRUS DIE OUT AS THE WEATHER WARMS? 

When speaking to Fox News, Dr. William Schaffner, the medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), also recognized the possibility, but quickly noted it’s likely too soon to know for sure.

“COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, and if it behaves like other respiratory viruses, including influenza [the flu], we might anticipate that it will abate as the weather gets warmer,” he said. But, he added, “It may become part of our usual cold and flu season.”

CATS ARE WEARING CORONAVIRUS MASKS IN CHINA

That said, “We can’t be sure,” he said.

“It’s a new virus, and it may not have read the textbooks. That’s why the current, ongoing research to develop vaccines and antiviral drugs that are effective against coronaviruses is so important,” he continued.

The virus is new in humans — meaning medical experts at this time “cannot predict the long-term impact on the global community,” Schaffner said. “We are now in the containment phase and are working to restrict the virus’ spread in the U.S. and internationally.”

“Clinicians are rapidly diagnosing cases, putting patients in isolation and providing medical care. Public health officials are tracking contacts and testing them for the virus. So far, we have had very few cases in the U.S., and they have been close contacts of confirmed cases. We are seeing a similar response around the world,” he added.

CHINA’S CORONAVIRUS SURVIVORS MAY FACE MENTAL HURDLES ONCE OUTBREAK ENDS

To date, the U.S. has confirmed 15 cases of the novel virus, which has sickened more than 64,000 people worldwide and claimed some 1,383 lives.

Speaking to CNN, Redfield said he thinks COVID-19 could eventually “find a foothold and we will get community-based transmission.”

The truck also gets a lifted suspension with Fox Racing shocks and 37-inch mud-terrain tires. The package can be ordered with any of the F-250’s engine options, including the new 7.3-liter “Godzilla” V8.

As you might expect, the price is also pretty monstrous and starts at $111,185. Nevertheless, Tuscany is planning to build 250 trucks.

Michael Avenatti Found Guilty In Nike Extortion Case

Westlake Legal Group 5e46f3cb2200005000d1cf1d Michael Avenatti Found Guilty In Nike Extortion Case

Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti was found guilty on Friday of all counts against him in a Nike extortion case.

A jury handed down the verdict in a Manhattan courtroom, declaring him guilty on three counts of trying to extort millions of dollars from the company.

Prosecutors said Avenatti told the company he would stage a news conference and claim that Nike executives were funding payments to college players and their families. He demanded he be paid $20 million not to go forward with the accusation.

Avenatti, 48, shot to fame by representing Stormy Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Cliffords), an adult film actor who sued President Donald Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Daniels said she received hush money during Trump’s 2016 campaign after the two had an affair.

Prosecutors said Avenatti faced $11 million in debts before his extortion attempt, NBC New York reported.

Federal agents wiretapped Avenatti’s phone and caught him threatening the company.

“I’m not fucking around with this, and I’m not continuing to play games,” Avenatti said at the time. “And I don’t — you know, this isn’t complicated. You guys know enough now to know you’ve got a serious problem.” 

Avenatti still faces federal charges in Manhattan for allegedly stealing $300,000 from Daniels after helping her secure a book contract. That trial begins April 21.

The convictions carry a combined potential penalty of 42 years in prison, according to the Associated Press.
