Jamie Foxx is rumored to have a new girlfriend after he and model and singer Sela Vave were photographed leaving a Los Angeles nightclub over the weekend.

Foxx is reportedly helping Vave expand her music career. Vave is a model and singer from Utah who moved to Los Angeles in July, Pop Culture reported. Last month, she and Foxx made a radio appearance together on LA’s Power 106 FM.

JAMIE FOXX AND KATIE HOLMES SPLIT AFTER 6 YEARS TOGETHER: REPORT

“Ever since I could talk. I have one single out on iTunes but we’re working on my debut album,” Vave said, according to Pop Culture.

Vave, who has more than 12,000 followers on Instagram, posted about the radio interview later that day, writing:

“I had the amazing opportunity to be on air @power_106 and talk with @justin_credible @iamjamiefoxx @daveophilly and @jyoungmdk it’s seriously such a blessing to be surrounded by and learn from some of the best in the business. I’m constantly in awe of their talent.”

In an Aug. 9 Instagram post, Vave was also pictured in New York’s Hamptons with Foxx and other celebrities.  She also models and is represented by Talent Management Group, Inc., according to her social media profiles.

“That moment when you realize you’re on stage with @bep @rundmc @iamjamiefoxx and so many other icons while @bonjovi is singing #livingonaprayer #thehamptons were lit!!”

Foxx and Vave were photographed leaving Bootsy Bellows’ nightclub in Los Angeles on Saturday, fueling rumors the “Robin Hood” star’s six-year relationship with Katie Holmes had come to an end.

According to the New York Post, Holmes was overheard at a restaurant discussing Foxx’s outing with friends and revealed that they haven’t been together for months. Neither Foxx nor Holmes have confirmed their split.

“What Jamie does is his business — we haven’t been together for months,” Holmes reportedly said.

Break-up rumors were not new, as Foxx has been has been spotted out and about with other women in previous months. In March, Foxx was spotted exiting Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills with a mysterious woman. According to Us Weekly, the actor stepped out with a mystery blonde just days before his outing with Vave.

Lack of flu shots for migrants at CBP detention centers a concern, critics say

Westlake Legal Group flu-vaccine Lack of flu shots for migrants at CBP detention centers a concern, critics say fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/health/respiratory-health/cold-and-flu fox-news/health/infectious-disease fox news fnc/health fnc Danielle Wallace article 6d62afd8-4fa8-5a54-b2f6-f94e80633cd7

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and their medical contractors do not administer influenza vaccines to migrants being held at detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border, reports said Tuesday.

“In general, due to the short-term nature of CBP holding and the complexities of operating vaccination programs, neither CBP nor its medical contractors administer vaccinations to those in our custody,” the agency told The Hill in a statement. Children receive the flu vaccine once they are transferred from CBP to Health and Human Services (HHS) custody, the CBP spokesperson said.

BORDER PATROL NABS NEARLY 200 CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS NEAR NEW MEXICO PORT OF ENTRY

Earlier this month, doctors from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and other medical groups wrote a letter to two top House Democrats, asking for a congressional investigation into conditions at border detention centers ahead of flu seasons. The doctors argued a “rapid turnover of detainees increases the spread of influenza” at centers.

The doctors said at least three of the six children who died in CBP custody this year were at least partially affected by the flu, according to their autopsy reports.

“These tragic deaths appear to represent more than half of child deaths in the last year in these immigration facilities and to reflect a rate of influenza death substantially higher than that in the general population,” doctors’ letter said. “Another influenza season is around the corner. … Timely action is critical.”

Children who fall ill with influenza at detention centers appear to be at a higher risk of complications due to an alleged lack of protocol in regard to isolating and separating patients to minimize the spread of infectious disease, the doctors said. They recommended CBP administer flu shots at the centers to children as quickly as possible to help protect them against the illness.

Reps. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., and Rep Lucile Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., in turn wrote to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which oversees Border Patrol, echoing the concerns from doctors that poor conditions in border facilities that may be exacerbating the spread of infectious disease.

Their offices demanded a response by Aug. 30, given that the start of flu season is approaching.

CBP has increased the number of medical staff contracted to work in facilities along the U.S.-Mexico border, the agency spokesperson told The Hill. Migrants receive an initial medical assessment upon entering CBP custody. If it is determined necessary, migrants may be referred to the local health system and receive vaccinations at a local medical facility, the spokesperson said.

Approximately 200 medical staff are currently contracted to work along the southwestern border. Most detention centers in high volume areas, including the Rio Grande sector, have “24/7 medical support available on site,” the agency spokesperson added.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone over  6 months old receive annual flu vaccinations. The agency recommends the vaccine be administered by the end of October in order to prepare for a flu season that peaks between December and February.

Bill Gates’ former science adviser ‘shocked’ to be named backup executor of Epstein will

Westlake Legal Group Jeffrey-Epstein1 Bill Gates' former science adviser 'shocked' to be named backup executor of Epstein will fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace d31d118b-33cd-56cb-a47d-a3eda513818c article

A former science adviser for Bill Gates said Tuesday he was “shocked” to learn Jeffrey Epstein had named him as a back-up executor of his $578 million will, according to a report.

Boris Nikolic, a 49-year-old biotech venture capitalist, was named as one of three executors of Epstein’s will which was filed Monday in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned two islands, Little St. James and Great St. James. Nikolic was a former science adviser to Gates, the Microsoft founder and philanthropist.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN SIGNED WILL 2 DAYS BEFORE SUICIDE, REPORT SAYS

“I was not consulted in these matters and I have no intent to fulfill these duties, whatsoever,” Nikolic said in a statement provided to Bloomberg.

“I was not consulted in these matters and I have no intent to fulfill these duties, whatsoever.”

— Boris Nikolic, former science adviser to Bill Gates

Epstein reportedly signed his will two days before he died at age 66 after being found hanging in his Manhattan jail cell on Aug. 10. The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled his death a suicide, but his attorneys vowed to continue investigating as they suspect foul play.

By signing the document, Epstein effectively transferred $578 million in assets to The 1953 Trust, named after the year the disgraced financier was born. The names of the trustees have not been made public, The Daily Beast reported. Epstein’s will names his brother, Mark Epstein, as his sole relative who might have some financial claims to the trust’s assets.

Epstein’s long-time attorneys, Darren K. Indyke and Richard D. Kahn, were named as the primary executors of the will. They are to receive $250,000 of Epstein’s $577 million in assets as compensation for their efforts curating the will.

Epstein named Nikolic as the successor executor, or the back-up executor, should Indyke and Kahn not be able to carry out their duties. The extent of Nikolic and Epstein’s relationship was unclear.

Nikolic is an immunologist who completed post-doctoral work at Harvard and currently works at the for-profit venture firm Biomatics Capital. One unnamed source told Bloomberg that Nikolic received financial advice from Epstein leading up to the public offering of the gene-editing company Editas Medicine Inc.

Nikolic, along with several other of Epstein’s associates, reportedly distanced himself from Epstein after the convicted sex offender was arrested in July and indicted on human trafficking charges.

As a wealthy philanthropist, Epstein congregated a large social circle of high-profile friends, celebrities and politicians over the years, including former President Bill Clinton and President Trump. A rep for Bill Gates confirmed to the New York Post that Epstein did not provide any services for Gates or his foundation.

Jeffrey Epstein arranged for sex with 18-year-old while on work release from jail: lawsuit

Jeffrey Epstein had sex with an 18-year-old woman inside the headquarters of a nonprofit while on work release from Florida jail — as plainclothed sheriff’s deputies stood guard outside — one of three new lawsuits filed Tuesday in New York against the late financier’s estate alleges.

A woman identified only as Kaitlyn Doe claims she flew to West Palm Beach, Fla., in October 2008 shortly after her 18th birthday to work for Epstein’s new nonprofit, the Florida Science Foundation.

Once she arrived, she was allegedly coerced into performing sex acts for Epstein, sometimes alone and sometimes with another young woman, inside the offices of the non-profit, all while he was on work release, the lawsuit says.

“Jeffrey Epstein, through his brazen and powerful organization, was quite literally able to commit federal sex trafficking offenses at his work release office, during his jail sentence,” according to the lawsuit.

“Jeffrey Epstein, through his brazen and powerful organization, was quite literally able to commit federal sex trafficking offenses at his work release office, during his jail sentence.” 

— Kaitlyn Doe lawsuit

At the time, Epstein was serving an 18-month prison sentence at the Palm Beach County Jail after pleading guilty to state prostitution charges. As part of the plea agreement, Epstein also registered as a sex offender and paid victims financial settlements, the Sun Sentinel of South Florida reported.

About three months into his sentence, Epstein was granted permission from Palm Beach Sheriff Ric Bradshaw to leave jail for up to 12 hours a day, six days a week on work release at his nonprofit, the Palm Beach Post reported. Epstein paid off-duty Palm Beach sheriff’s deputies dressed in suits to stand guard outside the office while he was inside.

The deputies were supposed to take detailed logs of who entered and exited the office while Epstein was there. Those records were destroyed years after Epstein finished his sentence as per Florida public record laws, the Palm Beach Post reported.

The Florida Science Foundation was created about seven months before Epstein accepted his plea deal and was dissolved two months after his sentence ended.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has ordered a state investigation to be conducted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement into the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and its handling of Epstein’s work release. The sheriff’s office is not named as a defendant in Kaitlyn Doe’s suit.

Kaitlyn Doe claims she first met Epstein in New York City when she was 17 and suffering from an eating disorder as well as other medical ailments. Epstein allegedly promised to pay for “expensive necessary surgeries” to treat her, the Miami Herald reported.

Kaitlyn claims she was coerced into performing sex acts for Epstein while she was still 17 and a virgin at his New York City mansion. She also claims she was flown to Epstein’s compound in the U.S. Virgin Islands where she was coerced into having sex with him. The sexual relationship continued until 2014, the suit alleges.

The lawsuit also alleges Epstein forced Kaitlyn to marry another woman so that that woman could remain in the United States even though she was not a U.S. citizen. That woman allegedly helped recruit young women for Epstein to have sex with.

Border Patrol nabs nearly 200 Central American migrants near New Mexico port of entry

U.S. Border Patrol on Monday said agents apprehended a large group of nearly 200 illegal immigrants near a base at a New Mexico port of entry over the weekend.

The agency said 194 illegal immigrants were apprehended after 3 a.m. Sunday. They were trying to cross the border near Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base, located near the Antelope Wells Port of Entry in New Mexico, a statement read. The group consisted mostly of families and unaccompanied minors from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

A 7-year-old travelling with a parent was airlifted to a hospital after tests showed he had a high fever. The child was diagnosed with the flu and later returned to Border Patrol custody. Initial medical screenings showed other migrants had lice and scabies.

“Large groups like these exacerbate the current immigration process further impacting our workforce, facilities, and resources,” Interim Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez said in a press release. “I commend the incredible work of our Border Patrol Agents who continue to push forward through this border crisis.”

Though the number of apprehensions has been down in recent months, border patrol operations are challenged by a high numbers of illegal immigrants entering the United States when compared to last year’s figures. 172,000 migrants had been apprehended in the El Paso Sector this fiscal year, a large increase from more than 31,000 migrants apprehended during the entire fiscal year 2018.

President Trump decision to end DACA was lawful, Justice Department says

Westlake Legal Group dacaprotest President Trump decision to end DACA was lawful, Justice Department says fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace article 88976449-8453-5ef5-9e81-77cb25a7bb81

The Justice Department submitted a legal brief to the Supreme Court Monday that stated President Trump acted lawfully when he decided to end the Obama-era immigration program known as DACA in September of 2017, according to a new report.

The Department of Homeland Security, “correctly, and at a minimum reasonably, concluded that DACA is unlawful,” Justice Department lawyers wrote in a brief submitted to the Supreme Court late Monday.

SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE WHETHER TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CAN END DACA PROGRAM

The Supreme Court will begin to hear arguments in November. A ruling is expected in the presidential election year, putting the high court at the center of one of the most politically charged issues of debates. A decision in favor of Trump would allow for the president to deport more than one million young adults residing in the U.S. under DACA protection, the New York Times reported.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, was created under an executive order in 2012. The program gives some illegal immigrants — known as “Dreamers” — who were brought to the United States as children– the opportunity to receive a renewable two-year reprieve from deportation and become eligible for a work permit.

In 2017, the Trump administration announced its plan to phase out the program, but federal courts have ruled that the phase-out could not apply retroactively and that the program should be restarted.

The White House fought back on those decisions, saying the president has broad authority over immigration enforcement policy. Federal appeals courts around the country have rejected efforts by the federal government to move ahead with phasing out the Obama-era program.

DACA proponents have also argued that Trump’s planned termination of the program violates federal law requiring adequate notice-and-comment periods before certain federal rules are changed, as well as other constitutional equal protection and due process guarantees.

A decision from the Supreme Court to end DACA could galvanize young Americans to ensure Trump does not see another four years in the White House, the Times report stated. On the other hand, if the Court chooses to continue the Obama-era program, conservatives could argue Trump needs another four years to fulfill his campaign promises on immigration.

Jeffrey Lord: NYT ‘Stalinizing’ America, left wants to re-write American history on race

Westlake Legal Group NYT-exterior Jeffrey Lord: NYT ‘Stalinizing’ America, left wants to re-write American history on race fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace cfe7cac6-e647-59c9-a5a3-49f1a697cdd6 article

Political commentator Jeffrey Lord responded to a leaked transcript from New York Times’ emergency town hall meeting Monday, saying that the newspaper wants to stir the narrative on race in the United States against President Donald Trump and in-favor of pro-Russian views.

“What the New York Times has engaged in is the Stalinizing of American history,” Lord, who worked in the Reagan administration, told Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday evening. “The left wanting to do a total re-write of American history, that we’re founded in racism and it’ll all about race.”

NEW YORK TIMES BLASTED OVER LEAKED TRANSCRIPT OF ANTI-TRUMP COVERAGE ON ‘THE FIVE’

The New York Times is facing backlash after a leaked transcript from a staff town hall meeting Monday revealed the newspaper was grappling with how to write about racism in a way that appeased anti-Trump viewers.

“What I’m saying is that our readers and some of our staff cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden,” New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet told his staff in a town hall on Monday.

Baquet addressed backlash on Twitter after the Times summarized President Trump’s address following mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism.”

One of the most vocal critics of the headline was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who wrote: “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions.”

Other users vowed to cancel their subscriptions. The Times changed the headline hours later to “Assailing Hate But Not Guns,” which also drew criticism.

Lord said the New York Times’ 1619 project, which is also mentioned in the leaked transcript, fails to tell the whole story about the Democratic Party’s contribution to upholding segregation and other forms of institutional racism in the United States.

“I’ve read the New York Times pieces, their so-called 1619 project, there isn’t a solitary mention that slavery and segregation were the party of Democrats,” Lord said. Hannity asked Lord where the Democratic Party was in the 1960s as the left failed to back legislation that would have extended voting rights for African Americans.

According to the recording obtained by the Slate, NYT executive editor Dean Baquet described the 1619 project as the “most ambitious examination of the legacy of slavery ever undertaken in newspaper to try to understand the forces that led to the election of Donald Trump.”

Before closing out his segment, Hannity asked Lord to imagine what the reaction would be from the Times if President Trump, instead of Hillary Clinton, had announced his mentor was a former KKK leader. The Clintons have been linked to the late Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia who founded a Ku Klux Klan chapter in the 1940s before beginning a career in politics.

AOC laughs off Trump claim she’s ‘fuming’ that Tlaib, Omar now get more attention

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brushed off a tweet from President Trump on Friday claiming she envied the media attention fellow “Squad” members Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have received over their recent controversy with Israel.

“Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party,” the president wrote. “Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!”

TRUMP SUGGESTS ‘SETUP’ AFTER TLAIB REJECTS ISRAEL’S INVITE: ‘ISRAEL ACTED APPROPRIATELY!’

But the New York Democrat apparently wasn’t buying it. She simply added a laughing emoji to a retweet of Trump’s tweet.

Trump’s comment came amid a string of tweets Friday responding to Tlaib’s announcement that she would not travel to Israel to visit her grandmother despite having been granted permission to enter the country from Israeli officials.

“Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her ‘grandmother,'” Trump wrote. “As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel. Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately!”

Israeli officials initially denied entry to Tlaib and Omar, pointing to the pair’s itinerary which stated they planned to visit “Palestine” and not “Israel.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu considered the phrasing evidence that the two U.S. congresswomen intended to use their trip to promote a boycott of the Jewish state.

When Tlaib initially requested the visit to her grandmother, she pledged not to “promote any boycotts against Israel.”  She subsequently tweeted that visiting her grandmother under those conditions would go against her beliefs.

That prompted criticism from Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, who tweeted that Tlaib apparently hated Israel more than she loved her grandmother.

UK climate agency officials doubled air travel over previous year, report says

More “do as I say, not as I do” government?

Members of the United Kingdom agency tasked with addressing climate change issues took nearly twice as many flights in the most recent fiscal year as they did during the previous one, according to a recent report.

Some critics claim the figures demonstrate how the officials from the U.K.’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) fail to practice what they preach by not trying to decrease their carbon footprint by cutting back on air travel.

BEIS officials traveled on more than 4,500 domestic business flights in the most recent financial year (2018-19), the department’s annual report said, after taking just 2,700 flights the previous year.

In response to the report, U.K. Labour Party politician Alan Whitehead, who’s lobbied for increased use of sustainable energy sources, said the BEIS should be “setting the gold standard of net zero compatible behavior, not flying domestically 4,500 times a year.”

“Ministers and officials shirking public transport and lower-carbon travel is how we’ve ended up with an overly expensive railway system,” he added.

A BEIS spokesperson told the Guardian that the flight figure does not paint a complete picture of the department’s total efforts to reduce emissions. The spokesperson said BEIS is “making good progress” toward their goal to slice the department’s total emission by two-thirds of its 2010 rate by 2020.

The department’s total greenhouse gas emissions, a figure that accounts for plane travel and other factors, was less than 22,700 tons of carbon during the last financial year. The department emitted 30,300 tons the previous year.

Doug Parr, chief climate scientist of Greenpeace, told the Guardian “Every part of the economy needs to be making carbon reductions, and within government one would expect BEIS to take the lead.

“The department has been cutting their flights over the last decade, but last year’s sharp and disappointing uptick in domestic flights is concerning. Flying is an unavoidably high-carbon activity and shouldn’t happen without a real need.

“Can this number of domestic flights within a small, developed nation with relatively good surface transport really be necessary?” he said.

In 2019, BEIS requested the Committee on Climate Change, which advises the U.K. government on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, develop a roadmap for the economy to reduce its total carbon emissions to a net zero by the year 2050.

In response, the committee warned that in order for the U.K. to effectively eliminate its contribution to global heating, the number of flights taken by U.K. residents would need to increase by a limited amount only to account for population increase, the Guardian reported.
