Ohio StateUrban Meyer is attempting to replace quite a bit of talent this summer. His Ohio State football team lost 15 players to the NFL, but the show goes on in Columbus, Ohio, which will likely still be home to a top 10 team. The Buckeyes will still be a top 10 team because Meyer has been recruiting at an extremely high level and there are plenty of of four and five-star prospects ready to step in. Those young players have apparently been performing fairly well this offseason. Ohio State released today a hype video titled, “Young Bucks On The Grind.” Check it out:15 #Buckeyes gone to the #NFL? Next man up.Young Bucks are on the #grind to make an impact in 2016.#GoBucks https://t.co/BlkMtf28M1— Ohio State Football (@OhioStateFB) June 23, 2016Ohio State opens fall camp in a little more than a month. The Buckeyes begin their 2016 season Sept. 3 at Ohio Stadium against Bowling Green.
Vanderhall’s 2020 Carmel GT Is a Race-Ready, 3-Wheel Go-Kart The Maserati Quattroporte: Luxury You Can Sort of Almost Imagine Affording 6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now Editors’ Recommendations Manned Flying Car Races Are Coming in 2020 Buy the book, take the ride.Concept cars exist in a different stratosphere from the boxes on wheels we drive from home to work and back again. These are the cars developed as though they were rocket ships or great works of art. They transcend their basic functions.The new book, Fast Forward, by Gestalten is a timeline chronicle of these advanced whips, tracing the most iconic and mind-bending auto designs and designers from the 1930s to present day.Both motorheads and men who simply enjoy a fine-looking car will equally enjoy Gestalten’s 304 full-color pages loaded with expansive images that make us weak at the knees and trace the stories that brought these sleek rides into existence.We were drawn to the hardcover by its vivid shots of the gorgeous Renault Trezor, prime Oldsmobile Golden Rocket, and red-headed bombshell Ferrari J50 (hello butterfly doors), and stayed for the exclusive interviews with Head of BMW Design Adrian van Hooydonk, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG Gorden Wagener, and Ferrari’s Head of Design Flavio Manzoni… to name a few.Fast Forward also does a tremendous job at showcasing just how futuristic and revolutionary each design was for its time. And still today many of the now-vintage concept cars look like they would fit better in outer space than the Interstate.Photo of Firebird IIIFor instance, the American post-war era GM Firebird III, which looks like a blood-hungry steel shark, was built with sharp, rear-mounted wings and fins, plus two glass bubble cockpits as you might see on a jet fighter from the 50s. In fact, many of the design elements for this ride were inspired from the aerospace industry, not excluding the steering wheel; a “Unicontrol” single joystick mounted to a center console on the driver’s side. My 2006 Volvo doesn’t even have that. Firebird III also boasted keyless entry, automatic cruise control, and power steering. And just remember, this was 1959. The same year The Twilight Zone premiered.Photo of Renault TrezorAdvancing forward to 2016, we get a look inside the cockpit of the Renault Trezor— a car whose entire top from grille to windows to rear lifts off like a robotic shell. Meanwhile the wrap-around windshield is tinted rosy red, the dash panel is touch-screen, oh, and she accelerates from 0 to 62mph in four seconds. More important for everyday drivers is that this wicked concept car prompted Renault to redesign their consumer offerings, infusing classic race car elements into cars for me and you.Alongside the post-war Firebird III and Renault Trezor is a slew of equally as mind-blowing rides, like United Nude Lo Res Car designed by Dutch footwear geniuses and shaped like a wheel-less geometric prism, the world’s first automotive T-Top Gordon Buehrig Tasco 48, and, of course, a couple Lamborghinis.For newbie petroheads beginning to dip your toes into the world of high-concept (high-price) and high-feature automobiles, consider Fast Forward your starting line. Meanwhile long-time car veterans can learn about the new modern machines that are changing the shape, look, and feeling of what we imaging a car to be.Buckle up for the ride.

Rabat – Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced his rejection of the veil for women in France this morning.In a lengthy interview on Europe 1 radio, during which he received questions from the public, Sarkozy, the head of centre-right opposition party UMP, was very aggressive on the subject of Islam.In the name of “equality” between men and women, Sarkozy said, “we do not want veiled women.” “There are a number of societal practices that we do not want,” he added.During an interview by French radio station RTL in the wake of the terrorist attacks on France, Sarkozy reacted with an incredible grimace to a caller identified as Natalie when she told him that she converted to Islam 10 years ago.
Rabat – The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has expressed its gratitude to King Mohammed VI for giving his high instructions for the immediate attention to the situation of a group of 13 Syrian families who have been in trapped on the Moroccan Algerian border.The UNHCR is “very grateful” for the King’s initiative towards the Syrian refugees at the Algerian-Moroccan border,” said UNHCR representative in Morocco, Jean Paul Cavaliéri.In a statement to Medi 1 TV, Cavalieri also said that “While aware of the sensitivity of this situation, we are very grateful that Morocco is the country that allowed this exit from crisis.” Last Thursday, King Mohammed VI issued his instruction to the authorities at the Moroccan Algerian borders to immediately allow the Syrian families entry into Morocco. Morocco had previously protested Algeria’s accusations of it had deported Syrian families to its border. Several Syrian families have already managed to enter the Moroccan border town of Figuig, where they have received the necessary assistance. lgerian authorities refused to take charge of the Syrian families by granting them refugee status as stipulated in the Geneva Convention.In late May, the UNHRC issued a press release calling for urgent action to help Syrian refugees trapped on the border between Morocco and Algeria.“Prompt action by both governments, is needed in facilitating the immediate and safe passage of the forty-one vulnerable Syrian refugees, among them children, babies and women – including at least one pregnant woman reportedly in need of urgent Caesarean section,” said the UNHRC.
The CRA employee that Nipawin resident David Petersen was speaking to via telephone last winter testified at Petersen’s trial on September 4 that the man was even more depressed and upset than the multiple other times the two had communicated previously.Petersen, 53, is being tried on charges of threatening to shoot Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and with threatening to blow up Parliament stemming from a February 12, 2019 conversation with a CRA employee.“We spoke quite a bit,” said CRA employee Paul Sveinson, testifying by closed circuit television from Winnipeg, MB. And while Petersen often seemed to be tired and depressed in the multiple other conversations they had, that day was worse than normal, he said.“It sounded quite desperate. The magnitude of this depression had escalated quite a bit from previous conversations,” Sveinson said. “He was saying that he wanted this to end. He felt like a dog that was backed in a corner.”None of their previous conversations had included any political statements so Sveinson said he was surprised when Petersen asked him his opinion on the Prime MinisterStory continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Sveinson said that Petersen brought up the topic of the Prime Minister and said that ‘Between you and me, he would like to take a shot at Trudeau’.He said that Petersen then further commented that ‘I don’t want to be the guy that goes and blows up Parliament’.“He said he felt like lashing out, and he felt again like a dog backed in a corner.”When questioned by Crown Prosecutor Lori O’Conner about what he was concerned would happen, Sveinsen said “I was concerned that Mr. Petersen would commit suicide.”As part of his job with the CRA he took a one day training course on suicide, Sveinson said. He took steps to ask Petersen if he was OK and if he was talking to anyone about his stress and depression.“I was concerned for him. I was concerned for his wellbeing and I didn’t want to end the conversation like that,” he said. “I wanted to make sure he was OK.”Svinson then reported the conversation to his supervisor, who called the RCMP.In a follow up interview in Nipawin with RCMP Constable Tanner Gillies, a member of the Saskatchewan RCMP National Enforcement Section, which provides security to VIPs such as the Prime Minister, Petersen said that he meant take a shot with his fist or ‘poke him in the nose’.In the interview, Petersen said to Gillies he had no recollection of any comments about blowing up Parliament.At one point, Petersen was talking to Gillies about stress and discussed how, in his job as building inspector, he was asked to inspect the home of a man who was suffering frostbite to his fingers and toes, facing amputation. Petersen’s investigation was to show that the home was not inhabitable because of the lack of running water and heat (with the only heat provided by electric heaters around the home).When the recording got to the point of seeing blood on the doorknob, Petersen tried to leave the court room, visibly upset, saying he could not continue.Petersen is representing himself and told Judge H Harradence that he would like to testify on his own behalf.The trial will resume Sept. 10 at 10 am in Nipawin Provincial Court for Petersen to present his defense, expected to be his testimony on his own behalf.
For about 180 of the complaints, action has either been taken or has started, or is not required, Manoel de Almeida e Silva, spokesman for the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) said at a press briefing in the capital Kabul.More than 45 per cent of the complaints to the Joint Electoral Management Body (JEMB) concerned the application of indelible ink, he said. Other grievances were of a general nature about the process itself, dealt with polling personnel, a shortage of polling material, multiple voting, under-age voters or insufficient voter education.Meanwhile, the three-member panel of experts looking into the complaints were at a counting centre in Gardez, where ballot boxes that were deemed problematic were isolated. They have already visited the station in Kabul.
It also said: “Academically, teaching deemed pretty good, though lots of coaching still occurring in the last years. ‘Just as insurance,’ say the parents. We did feel that this was definitely more about anxious and ambitious parents than inadequately taught children.”Thomas’s, which runs a number of schools in London, says on its website: “In each school, we aim to offer the highest academic standards, set within a broad and rich curriculum, which inspires enjoyment, learning and achievement.”We expect every member of the schools’ communities to ‘Be Kind’.”The Duchess of Cambridge has already said she is not sure George “has any idea what’s going to hit him”. He will be young for his year, having only turned four in the summer.Art, ballet, drama, ICT, French, music and physical education are all taught by specialist teachers from a child’s first day at the Lower School.On his first day, George will meet his form teacher, teaching assistant and head of the lower school Helen Derbyshire. Prince George’s new school has been described as “busy” and “slightly chaotic” in a review by The Good Schools Guide.The four-year-old begins full-time education in September when he joins one of three reception classes at private day school Thomas’s Battersea. The school, where fees cost from £17,604 a year, was reviewed as “A big, busy, slightly chaotic school for cosmopolitan parents who want their children to have the best English education money can buy. That is what they want and, to a large degree, that is what they get”.The assessment by The Good Schools Guide added: “Plenty of opportunities for pupils to excel but withdrawn types might find it all somewhat overwhelming.” Prince George pictured at his aunt Pippa’s wedding with sister CharlotteCredit:Max Mumby/Getty Like George, new headmaster Simon O’Malley starts at the school in September. An Aberdeen University graduate, he has taught in Kenya and previously was headmaster of Wellesley House School in Kent, a post he held for 11 years.The Good Schools Guide, which describes itself as offering “unbiased and candid school reviews” on its website, praised Mr O’Malley, describing him as “Ambitious and enthusiastic; generated an energy and buzz about his previous school. Much-liked and respected by parents”.The school, a selective establishment, has 560 boys and girls aged from four to 13, with around 20 in each class. It is described in the guide as having great facilities from its science labs to gym. His smart, new uniform – which must be bought from John Lewis – includes a £25 navy v-neck pullover, matching Bermuda-style school shorts, long red socks and black shoes. Other items George will be taking with him are a red art smock, which costs from £30, and a sports kit including swim hat and a pair of black ballet shoes.

Watch any Discovery channels on Sky? They’re set to disappear next week This means no more Eurosport and TLC, among others. Jan 26th 2017, 2:39 PM Thursday 26 Jan 2017, 2:39 PM Randy Fenoli from TLC’s popular show Say Yes to the Dress 105 Comments By Órla Ryan Share Tweet Email9 http://jrnl.ie/3206618 DISCOVERY CHANNELS WILL likely soon be pulled from Sky and its Now TV service in the UK and Ireland as negotiations for a new carriage deal have broken down between the two companies.Discovery is looking for more money, claiming Sky pays it less now than a decade ago – despite adding new channels and increasing viewership.Susanna Dinnage, managing director of Discovery Networks UK and Ireland, said: “We believe Sky is using what we consider to be its dominant market position to further its own commercial interest over those of viewers and independent broadcasters.“The vitality of independent broadcasters like Discovery and plurality in TV is under threat.”Sky has told consumers Discovery’s channels are “unlikely to be available in Sky TV packages” from 1 February onwards.In the UK and Ireland, this includes Animal Planet, Discovery HD, Discovery History, Discovery Home & Health, Discovery Science, Discovery Shed, Discovery Turbo, DMAX, Eurosport1, Eurosport2, Investigation Discovery, Quest and TLC.Overpaying In a statement to Variety, a Sky spokesperson said: “Despite our best efforts to reach a sensible agreement, we, like many other platforms and broadcasters across Europe, have found the price expectations for the Discovery portfolio to be completely unrealistic. Discovery’s portfolio of channels includes many which are linear-only, where viewing is falling.“Sky has a strong track record of understanding the value of the content we acquire on behalf of our customers, and as a result we’ve taken the decision not to renew this contract on the terms offered.“We have been overpaying Discovery for years and are not going to anymore. We will now move to redeploy the same amount of money into content we know our customers value.”Read: The consumer watchdog will probe ‘suspected anti-competitive conduct’ in the ticket industryRead: Cause of last night’s gorse fire on the Dublin Mountains unknown Short URL Image: TLC Randy Fenoli from TLC’s popular show Say Yes to the Dress Image: TLC 64,373 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article
Un fossile du plus vieil ancêtre des grands félins jamais découvert Une nouvelle étude fait état de la découverte d’un fossile du crâne du plus vieil ancêtre de grands félins jamais retrouvé. Selon les scientifiques, cet ossement se rapproche étrangement de celui des tigres actuels.C’est en Chine que des paléontologues ont retrouvé en 2004 le crâne fossilisé d’un mystérieux animal qui n’avait jusqu’ici pas été identifié. Mais aujourd’hui, des scientifiques sont parvenus à établir l’âge et l’appartenance du spécimen. Vieux de 2,5 millions d’années, l’animal appartient à la branche généalogique des félins. Il est ainsi devenu le plus vieux spécimen de crâne complet de félin jamais observé. En effet, jusqu’ici, le plus ancien fossile mis au jour et associé aux grands félins était une mâchoire de l’espèce Panthera palaeosinensis datée à quelque 1,8 millions d’années. À lire aussiLe chat de Pallas, un félin sauvage aussi irrésistible que méconnuMais l’âge n’a pas été le plus surprenant à l’étude des caractéristiques du crâne. Son anatomie a également bien étonné les scientifiques car le crâne s’est révélé aussi gros (26 centimètres) que celui des jaguars modernes et a montré des caractéristiques, notamment celles des crocs, tout à fait semblables à celles des squelettes de tigres actuels, le plus grand félin vivant actuellement. Ainsi, en considérant ces observations et en les comparant à celles faites pour d’autres espèces anciennes ou modernes, les paléontologues ont placé le spécimen chinois baptisé Panthera zdanskyi dans la branche des tigres au sein des grands félins. “Bien que le crâne soit un peu écrasé, il est toujours en excellent état. J’aurais aimé voir cet animal”, a expliqué Julie Meachen, une des paléontologues ayant participé à l’étude. Cité par le National Geographic, elle a également ajouté : “Les grands félins étaient excellents à ce qu’ils ont immédiatement fait au cours de l’évolution, donc leur anatomie n’a pas beaucoup changé… Ils étaient et sont encore de très bons prédateurs, en partie grâce à l’organisation de leur corps extrêmement réussi”.

Listen X Share 00:00 /16:15 Is Houston closer than ever to getting an NHL team?New Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta recently met with National Hockey League officials as part of what he describes as the “very early stage of evaluating what opportunities may exist” to either relocate an NHL franchise here or establish an expansion team in Houston.But Houston is not the only city the league might consider for expansion or relocation. Efforts have long been underway in Seattle, Quebec City, and Kansas City – among other communities – to try to establish an NHL franchise.Houston Matters explores the reasons why Houston would seem to have an edge (market size, a hockey-ready arena, an interested owner, etc.) at this moment in bringing a team to town, whether more than one city might be in line for a franchise, and what remains to be determined in order for it to happen here.Joining Houston Matters host (and hockey aficionado) Craig Cohen for this conversation are John Royal, a writer for the Houston Press (who covered Houston’s last hockey team — the Aeros), and Greg Rajan, online sports editor for the Houston Chronicle.MORE: Hockey Is Coming to Houston.

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – Black children are twice as likely as Whites to be victims of child abuse, with 1 in 5 becoming victims of neglect and/or physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, according to a new study.“These data highlight that the burden of confirmed maltreatment is far greater than suggested by single-year national estimates of confirmed child maltreatment and that the risk for maltreatment is particularly high for black children, who had cumulative risk of confirmed maltreatment in excess of 25 percent for many years, and never less-than 20 percent,” the report states.Official 2011 data from child protective service agencies puts the overall child abuse figure at 1 in 100 children. But the new research places the figure at 1 in 8, with most of it taking place in the early years.The new study, which appears online in this month’s JAMA Pediatrics, uses the same protective services data (the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System – or, NCANDS—Child File), but measures it cumulatively, including all children under 18 who have been victimized, up to and including the given year.“If you have a person abused, say, at age four, and they were four in 2009. In 2014, they would be nine. If you took a yearly approach, you would only include in your measure those who were maltreated this year,” says Hedwig Lee, one of the study’s authors. “We show people who’ve experienced this at least one time before they were 18. It’s an estimate that shows the actual burden of maltreatment in children. If you experience maltreatment at any time, it affects you, so [this method] is a more clear snapshot of the population affected.”The researchers use NCANDS data from 2004 through 2011, and in that time, nearly 5.7 million children had at least one confirmed case of maltreatment during their lives (80 percent of which stemmed from neglect, as opposed to abuse, according to the study). CPS found that 174,400 Black children had been neglected or abused in 2011 alone (for most of these children, it was the first reported case).Cumulatively, researchers found that by 4 years old, Black children had a 1 in 10 chance of being maltreated. By 10 years old, the risk was 4 in 25. Put another way, that’s at least four students in every fifth-grade class. By 15 years old, Black youth had a 1 in 5 chance of having a CPS file.In 2011, White children accounted for 317,900 confirmed maltreatment cases, most of which were first offenses. (There were a total of 670,000 confirmed cases that year).Cumulatively, by 4 years old White children have a 1 in 20 chance of maltreatment; a 4 in 50 chance by age 10, and a 1 in 10 chance by age 15.Put another way, Black children are twice as likely to suffer maltreatment as White children by each of those benchmarks.“It highlights the importance of thinking about how, in the United States, many disparities that occur…are examples of the ways in which the history of racism can lead to disparate outcomes among groups,” Lee says, pointing out that overwhelmed parents of color are much less likely to have access to support such as comprehensive healthcare, lactation consultants, therapists, nannies, and the like.“When we think of [the data’s] racial disparities, it’s not necessarily bias among CPS, but more about the large problems of social disparities. In many cases parents are overwhelmed and not receiving enough support. That’s a social and economic problem.”CPS confirmed cases of abuse or neglect are most likely to occur in infancy and toddlerhood, across race and in both annual and cumulative measures. A more accurate interpretation, according to study co-author, Christopher Wildeman, is that in the case of babies and toddlers, maltreatment is both easier to identify as such, and more likely to be discovered. “Young children are quite fragile, so maltreatment they experience — whether abuse or neglect — is more noticeable than it would be with older children. If you yank a two year-old by the arm and you yank an eight year-old by the arm, the two year-old could end up with a separated shoulder from the incident, whereas the eight year-old might feel resentful and hurt, but may not present symptoms of an injury,” Wildeman explains. In addition, “folks – whether teachers, physicians, or other folks in the community—are just more attentive to small children, and the folks at CPS are no different.” In addition to the rate difference between CPS’s annual count and this study’s cumulative count, there’s also a huge difference between CPS rates and self-reporting from adults who were maltreated as children. “Self-reported rates are higher because to have a case confirmed there has to be enough evidence and there’s a high level of proof,” Lee explains. “There’s going to be discrepancy…[especially if] they’ve never had contact with CPS. Our estimate might be conservative. It’s clear that people may be slipping through the cracks.”The study does not make recommendations or offer sociological explanations regarding the disparities it highlights, but it does point out that child maltreatment is a serious public health issue. In addition to the moral implications, child maltreatment is associated with higher rates of mortality, obesity, HIV/AIDS infection, and mental health problems.Children who have been abused or neglected are more likely to engage in criminal activity as teens and/or adults, and five times more likely to attempt suicide. One cited study estimates that the social toll stemming from the effects of child maltreatment costs the United States $124 billion every year.“The results of this study provide valuable epidemiological information,” the researchers conclude. “Being able to assess the extent and severity of maltreatment across populations and time can inform policies and practices that can be used not only to reduce maltreatment, but also to improve population health and reduce health disparities.”

No related posts. FIFA opened an investigation against the Costa Rican Football Federation (Fedefut), due to alleged infractions that occurred before the start of the match against the United States last Friday.Eduardo Li, president of Fedefut, told the radio show “Encuentro Deportivo” and YashinQuesada.com that the investigation is due to loud jeers and catcalls drowning out the U.S. national anthem.An international delegate at the match alerted FIFA to the incident. Costa Rica won the qualifier, 3-1.“We will pay the fine, yes,” Li told the radio station. “But they ought to sanction the rest of the countries that have committed the same mistake.”Costa Rican fans remained angry over a World Cup Qualifying match against the U.S. last March in Denver, Colorado. In a blizzard, the United States defeated the Ticos 1-0. Fedefut thought the match should’ve been postponed, but a formal protest filed to FIFA was denied due to protocol errors.Fedefut and supporters of “La Sele,” as Costa Rica’s national team is known, engaged in some gamesmanship before last week’s match, such as not providing official soccer balls for U.S. team practices. But those measures all appeared to fall within the bounds of what FIFA considers fair play. However, it seems the Fedefut still will face a punishment over the U.S. trip after the home crowd violated FIFA operating procedures for respecting national anthems. Facebook Comments

Haugen was sentenced in state district court in Grafton to three years of supervised probation and paid restitution of $185000 to three victims in the two cases About a dozen other charges in the cases were droppedBut Haugen who lives in the Twin Cities still faces similar felony counts in a separate case called Coadum alleging he took $25 million from six clients in Walsh County said Walsh County State’s Attorney Barb Whelan Those charges have ties to a federal case in Georgia in which authorities allege Haugen helped raise $30 million in phony Coadum investments with millions still stashed in foreign accounts Haugen’s plea agreement Monday in Grafton involved comparatively modest amounts he took from an elderly couple and two elderly men in Walsh County "They all got compensation in full" said Whelan"We would not accept an Alford plea" Whelan said referring to a guilty plea in which a defendant admits no wrong but acknowledges there is enough evidence to convict him "He had to plead guilty to the charges and admit his wrong-doing"Plea agreementHaugen appeared in court with his attorneys Steve Meshbesher from Minneapolis and Robert Fleming from Cavalier NDMeshbesher said the "substantive charges of fraud swindle theft" against Haugen were dismissed"He pled on a technicality of giving advice without a license" Meshbesher said Whelan said she weighed the cost of pursuing all the charges against getting the victims’ money back"If I had taken it to trial I could have gotten convictions" Whelan said "But the end result is if he had gone to jail I would never have gotten the money for (the victims)" Instead the $185000 would have been spent on Haugen’s defense Whelan said The conditions of Haugen’s three-year probation prohibit him from acting as a stockbroker financial advisor or agent under state security laws and require him to give his probation officer in Minnesota "full access" to all his computer and financial records and "any other type of records relating to his finances" He also is to have no contact with the victims Whelan saidMeshbesher said Haugen hasn’t been able to work as a securities agent for years anyway since losing both his federal and North Dakota securities licenses "His probation is of no consequence" Meshbesher said It allows him to travel within the United States and Puerto Rico and its deferred imposition means once it’s up Haugen will have no felony record on the charges he saidAnother caseBut Whelan said she still hopes to put Haugen behind bars on six similar felony counts in the Coadum case that charges Haugen took $25 million from six clients"We’ll see" Meshbesher said pointing out Whelan already has dismissed about 40 counts of theft and fraud against Haugen in the Coadum case In fact Haugen may end up testifying against others in the federal Coadum case Meshbesher saidA federal court in Atlanta last December charged James Jeffrey and Thomas Repke on 22 counts of fraudulently raising $30 million from 150 investors in the US and Canada in the Coadum scheme Awaiting trial both face maximum penalties of 20 years in prison and a $250000 fineHaugen is alleged to have been the key salesman in the Coadum deal collecting more than half the $30 million from clients much of it wired to bank accounts in Europe not investedA federal receiver continues to track the money and says that millions remain in accounts in Switzerland Malta and AndorraEarlier this year Whelan dismissed related charges against Haugen’s alleged co-conspirators David Hampton of Florida and William Fisher of Oklahoma in return for their cooperation in her prosecution of Haugen’They lied to him’But Meshbesher says Haugen himself is a victim of the "real bad guys" Jeffrey and Repke as well as Hampton in the Coadum case "They lied to him" Meshbesher said "The people who created Coadum caught him as well as his customers I spoke to the US attorney (Wednesday) in Atlanta and they might want to have him assist them with prosecuting Jeffrey and Repke"Haugen worked as a stockbroker in Grafton in the 1980s and moved to Grand Forks in the 1990s; he was fired from Merrill-Lynch in Grand Forks in 2001 for using unethical practices a former colleague said The federal Securities and Exchange Commission still has an outstanding judgment of $14 million against Haugen Haugen is working Meshbesher said but he declined to provide details of the work"He’s broke He’s lost everything He and his wife are living in the basement of his daughter’s and son-in-law’s house in the Twin Cities" Meshbesher said "They basically have no money and his wife’s family (members) are raising money to help him out with this disaster"Family and friends raised the $185000 in restitution paid this week to the three former clients of Haugen Meshbesher saidWhelan said she expects state District Judge Laurie Fontaine soon will set a trial date for Haugen in the Coadum case in Grafton Reach Lee at (701) 780-1237; (800)
