North Korea launches another projectile, US official says

WORLD NEWS North Korea launches another projectile, US official says  https://linewsradio.com/north-korea-launches-another-projectile-us-official-says/  http://abcnewsradioonline.com/world-news/rss.xml

Oleksii Liskonih/iStock(SEOUL) — North Korea has fired at least one projectile into the Sea of Japan, a U.S. official confirmed to ABC News.

The official said that the projectile is similar to the two launched by North Korea earlier this week which were assessed to be short range ballistic missiles.

This is the third launch by North Korea in the last two weeks alone. U.S. officials have said these launches appear to be North Korea’s protest to joint U.S.-ROK military exercises set to begin later this month.

Thursday’s launch was first reported by CNN.

This latest test comes as the United Kingdom, France and Germany condemned North Korea’s ballistic missile launches from earlier this week following a closed United Nations Security Council briefing. The countries called the tests a violation of UN sanctions and urged Pyongyang to meet the U.S. at the negotiating table instead.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters in Thailand on Thursday that the U.S. stands “ready to continue our diplomatic conversations with the North Koreans.”

He expressed regret that he would not meet his North Korean counterparts during his visit to Bangkok but said he’s still “optimistic that that will happen before too long and we’re looking forward to the chance to reconnect with them,” calling on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to “deploy his team.”

One month ago, during President Donald Trump’s historic visit to the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea, Kim agreed to working-level negotiations in a matter of weeks, but after weeks of waiting and preparing, those meetings have not taken place.

Indian police investigating death of Indian coffee tycoon

WORLD NEWS Indian police investigating death of Indian coffee tycoon  https://linewsradio.com/indian-police-investigating-death-of-indian-coffee-tycoon/  http://abcnewsradioonline.com/world-news/rss.xml

DSLucas/iStock(NEW YORK) — The body of VG Siddhartha, the founder of India’s largest coffee chain Cafe Coffee Day, was recovered on Wednesday from near a river just outside the southern Indian city of Mangaluru, authorities said.

Siddhartha was last seen on Monday by his driver, who said Siddhartha had gone for a walk but never returned. The driver alerted Siddhartha’s family who contacted police, district magistrate S. Sasikanth Senthil told ABC News.

Police said that a local fisherman found his body Wednesday morning.

Siddhartha, who comes from a coffee growing family, opened his first coffee shop in 1996. Since then the chain has grown to include more than 1700 cafes with outlets in countries like Austria, Malaysia, and the Czech Republic.

“Cafe Coffee Day created the café culture in India,” said Santosh Desai of the consulting firm FutureBrands. “It became a social place, a place chill out on your own. It created an alternative space. The efforts of Cafe Coffee Day helped make coffee an everyday culture in India. And the company continued to hold its own even after global chains like Starbucks came into the Indian market.”

People took to Twitter to pay tribute to Siddhartha and share memories of Cafe Coffee Day, an iconic chain that was the first of its kind in India and catered to the country’s growing middle class.

“I met my wife at #CafeCoffeeDay. That is just one story. There are millions of such beautiful stories across the nation,” said on Twitter user.

The district magistrate told ABC News that the police are still in the process of verifying the authenticity of a letter circulated by some news sites in which Siddhartha talked about his business troubles and has been viewed as a possible suicide note.

Police told ABC News that a post mortem into his death has been concluded and an investigation is ongoing.

Café Coffee Day released a tribute on social media remembering their chairman.

“We stand committed to his vision and will continue building on his legacy,” it said.

Doctors failed to find teeth after grandmother swallowed them, lawsuit alleges

Family Photo/iStock(NEW YORK) — The family of an 84-year-old New York woman has filed a lawsuit against the hospital that treated her after her family says she swallowed four false teeth, accusing doctors of failing to find and treat the source of her ailment, which they claim led to a snowball of health complications that have dramatically affected her quality of life.

Manhasset resident Chong Nan Woo called her son, David Lee, in September 2017 after she swallowed a portion of her dentures that came loose as she was taking medication, he told ABC News. She then called 911 and was transported to the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, where doctors could not immediately find where the teeth had gone after performing a CAT scan, Lee said.

As Woo complained about a pain in her throat, doctors inserted a feeding tube, but placed it down the wrong pipe, causing a perforation in the esophagus, the family’s attorney, Christine Coscia, told ABC News.

Lee began to worry days later as his mother’s temperature began to spike. He later learned that during the 10-day period in which he says doctors still hadn’t found the teeth, every time Woo swallowed — food, water or even saliva — toxic water pockets were exiting her esophagus and surrounding her lungs and heart, which eventually led to osteomyelitis — or a bone infection — in her neck bone, Lee said.

The doctors finally found the teeth when they went to perform a procedure to drain the water pockets, and Woo later required spinal surgery for her neck, Coscia said. After the surgery, she was intubated for breathing, which eventually paralyzed one of her vocal chords.

Woo’s hospital stay amounted to about four months, Lee said.

The myriad of health complications transformed Woo from a “very active,” passionate grandmother who was involved with her church and community, Lee said, into a bedridden woman who requires 24-hour medical care in an assisted living facility. She hasn’t been able to eat and drink on her own or even speak for about two years, he said.

Lee said he has observed his mother’s energy and spirit getting progressively “weaker and weaker.”

“I feel so sorry about it, especially since my mom was my inspiration,” Lee said. “I really hope she could not lose in her own passion to survive and recover,” he said.

The hospital, doctors and physician assistants allegedly involved in Woo’s treatment are named in the lawsuit filed in Queens County this week, which alleges that they “breached their obligation to render appropriate medical and surgical care and treatment” and that they “negligently and carelessly failed to discover and treat swallowed teeth.”

Coscia said that had the doctors initially found the teeth, the other complications would not have occurred.

“Had they found the teeth on the scan, had they seen where it was and knew where they were immediately, they would have been able to remove them and everything else wouldn’t have occurred,” Coscia said.

It is unclear whether Woo will make a full recovery, although Lee said he hopes that she will.

A spokesman for the Long Island Jewish Medical Center said he could not comment on the case at this time.

‘The Crown’ veteran Vanessa Kirby on holding her own with the very big boys of ‘Hobbs & Shaw’

Entertainment News  'The Crown' veteran Vanessa Kirby on holding her own with the very big boys of 'Hobbs & Shaw' https://linewsradio.com/the-crown-veteran-vanessa-kirby-on-holding-her-own-with-the-very-big-boys-of-hobbs-shaw/ http://abcnewsradioonline.com/entertainment-news/rss.xml

 

Universal Pictures(NEW YORK) — While Vanessa Kirby had a small, key role in the action movie Mission: Impossible – Fallout, her character left the fighting to Tom Cruise and company.  But things are quite different in Kirby’s new movie, Hobbs & Shaw.

Kirby plays Hattie Shaw, a rogue agent with the British spy service MI6 and the sister of Owen Shaw, the hard-case mercenary played by Jason Statham in the movie, which is a Fast and Furious spin-off.  Hattie finds herself fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with Statham — and Dwayne Johnson, who plays Hobbs — to stop the bionically enhanced baddie Brixton, played by Idris Elba.

So, what was it like keeping up with those guys — especially for an actress who’s best known for playing the chainsmoking Princess Margaret on the Netflix hit The Crown?

“I mean, not the easiest, did you notice?” she laughs to ABC Radio. “No, luckily they were awesome…they made it easy.”

“To me, the main thing is just to make sure all the little girls in the cinema feel like they…have like someone on screen in that world who was as capable as [the men] were and she was her own kind of presence,” she points out.

Hobbs & Shaw was directed by former stuntman and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, which Kirby says helped a lot.

“You know, David is like one of the best stunt guys in the world. He was Brad Pitt’s stunt double…years and years ago,” she explains. “And the [stunt] team also did Atomic Blonde and Deadpool.”

“Knowing that I had them…even though the training was so difficult, you go, ‘Oh God, they probably will make me look good even if I’m terrible,'” she laughs. “So that was…quite reassuring.

Fast and Furious presents: Hobbs and Shaw opens Friday.

‘What is going on?’: Air Force general’s emotional plea to address rising suicides in the service

Austin Prisbrey/U.S. Air Force(WASHINGTON) — The top Air Force general has ordered commanders to pause operations for one day to address the rising number of suicides in the service.

Gen. David Goldfein, chief of staff of the Air Force, wrote in a letter to commanders on Thursday that the service has already lost 78 airmen to suicide this year.

“If we do nothing, we will end 2019 with upwards of 150+,” he said.

The Air Force lost 103 airmen to suicide in 2018. Air Force Magazine was first to report on the directive.

“Hopeful to hopeless… what is going on?” Goldfein asked in the letter. “It is our job to find out.”

Commanders have a 45-day window to decide when they will take the day-long operational pause and have been ordered to “include leadership at every level in both planning and execution.”

“Suicide is an adversary that is killing more of our airmen than any enemy on the planet,” Goldfein said. “You and I have sworn to ‘defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’ Suicide attacks sometimes with and often without warning. Make this tactical pause matter. Make it yours and make it personal.”

The Air Force also provided a video message from Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kaleth Wright to help commanders frame their conversation.

“This is the start of an ongoing dialogue about the force’s well-being — it’s going to require continuous engagement,” Air Force spokesperson Maj. Will Russell told ABC News in a statement. “The collected feedback will drive changes to programs if necessary, as well as inform more effective ways to empower leaders at the lowest level.”

“This ‘Resiliency Tactical Pause’ is about giving our Airmen time back to connect and break down barriers to getting help. The Air Force is taking a day to actively seek feedback on resiliency; every unit will choose a date between Aug. 1 and Sep. 15 that doesn’t disrupt operations and training,” Russell said.

Goldfein’s directive shines a light on suicides within the active duty force, which hit a six-year high in 2018.

The Military Crisis Line is available 24/7 at no cost to active duty, Guard and reserve members, their families and friends. Contact the Military Crisis Line at 800-273-8255, then press 1, or access online chat by texting 838255.

NY resident dies after contracting rare tick-borne illness, health officials say

Kerrick/iStock(GARDINER, N.Y.) — A New York resident has died after contracting the Powassan virus, a rare virus spread by deer ticks, health officials announced.

The Ulster County Health Department was notified of the victim’s death on Wednesday, according to a press release. It is the first known case of a diagnosis of Powassan virus in the state this year, health officials said.

The victim lived in the city of Gardiner, according to the release. New York typically sees between zero and six cases of Powassan infection per year.

While the virus is rare, the number of people contracting it has increased in recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most cases in the U.S. occur in the northeast and Great Lakes regions from late spring through mid-fall, when ticks are most active.

Initial symptoms include fever, headache, vomiting and weakness. Symptoms of severe disease include confusion, loss of coordination, difficulty speaking and seizures.

As the virus progresses, it can cause encephalitis, or infection of the brain, or meningitis, infection of the membranes around the brain and spinal cord. About one of 10 people who experience severe disease die, and about half of the people who survive severe disease experience long-term health problems, including recurring headaches, loss of muscle mass and strength and memory problems, according to the CDC.

The illness is categorized as a flaviviruses, a group that includes West Nile virus, dengue and yellow fever, but those are transmitted by mosquitoes.

There are no vaccines to prevent or medicines to treat the disease.

Ulster County Commissioner of Health and Mental Health Dr. Carol M. Smith advised residents to regularly check themselves and their pets for ticks.

“It is imperative that all residents take every precaution necessary against tick-borne illnesses, especially during outdoor activities,” Smith said in a statement. “Residents should vigilantly check themselves and their pets for ticks and tick bites.”

Health officials recommend that people stay on clear, well-traveled paths, use insect repellents containing DEET, or diethyltoluamide and to shower immediately after spending time outdoors to avoid ticks. In addition, wear light-colored clothing to spot ticks easily and tuck pants into socks.

Additional information on the victim’s death was not immediately available.

Olympian Ashley Wagner claims she was sexually assaulted by figure skater John Coughlin

Sports News Olympian Ashley Wagner claims she was sexually assaulted by figure skater John Coughlin https://linewsradio.com/olympian-ashley-wagner-claims-she-was-sexually-assaulted-by-figure-skater-john-coughlin/ http://abcnewsradioonline.com/sports-news/rss.xml

Daniel Stark / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — Olympian Ashley Wagner alleged she was sexually assaulted by late fellow figure skater John Coughlin when she was 17 and he was 22, claiming he went to her bed and groped her when she was asleep after a party with other athletes in Colorado.

Wagner, now 28, came forward in a first-person essay and video piece for USA Today published Thursday, in which she said she “wrestled with using John’s name.”

“But a name can shape so much of how my story is perceived,” Wagner wrote. “Without it, I know people will question my credibility.”

Coughlin, a pairs champion and coach, killed himself in January, days after he was given an “interim suspension” by the U.S. Center for SafeSport, an organization that monitors athlete safety in an effort to prevent abuse.

Wagner went on to say her story was “not about a name.”

“This is about the environment that allowed for that act to happen. I want the issue to feel real to people, and for them to understand the dynamics of my sport, where uncomfortable power imbalances thrive to this day,” Wagner wrote.

SafeSport ended its investigation into Coughlin after his death, but said in a March statement it found evidence that figure skating has a culture “that allowed grooming and abuse to go unchecked for too long” and it “cannot be allowed to continue,” per ESPN.

Additionally, former figure skater Craig Maurizi testified in Congress in 2018 that the U.S. Figure Skating Association treated him “with the same disdain, disrespect and disbelief” seen by victims of former gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar when he alleged sexual abuse by a coach in 1999, saying figure skating had the same problems with handling these allegations as gymnastics.

U.S. Figure Skating did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.

Wagner said she felt compelled to come forward after a 13-year-old won the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in late January, shortly after Coughlin’s death, leading Wagner to consider how many young girls and boys are in the sport and potentially vulnerable to abuse.

“It was in that moment that I knew I had to come forward with my story. I want to make this sport safer for those kids,” Wagner wrote. “I went to U.S. Figure Skating and proposed changes to athlete education and wellness designed to keep these young skaters as safe as possible.”

Wagner is not the first skater to publicly claim Coughlin assaulted her. In May, his former skating partner Bridget Namiotka, who is five years younger than Coughlin, claimed he sexually abused her for two years. Attorney John Manly, who represents multiple women who claim Coughlin abused them, confirmed to ESPN that he represents Namiotka.

Wagner also posted about her story on Instagram on Thursday, writing, “I feel so strongly that people need to talk more about these experiences, that they need to have a bright light turned on the dark corners where they thrive. This happens all too often to both men and women, and we need to do better for our next generation.”

Families of American teens detained in Rome in connection to cop’s murder speak out

WORLD NEWS Families of American teens detained in Rome in connection to cop's murder speak out  https://linewsradio.com/families-of-american-teens-detained-in-rome-in-connection-to-cops-murder-speak-out/  http://abcnewsradioonline.com/world-news/rss.xml

piola666/iStock(LONDON) — The fathers of two American teenagers detained in Rome have visited their sons for the first time since the teens were accused of killing an Italian police officer.

Finnegan Lee Elder, 19, and Gabriel Christian Natale-Hjorth, 18, remain jailed in the Italian capital on suspicion of attempted extortion and aggravated murder in connection to the fatal stabbing of Mario Cerciello Rega, a 35-year-old deputy brigadier in Italy’s Carabinieri paramilitary police force. The two teens are accused of attacking Cerciello Rega and his partner on a street corner in Rome in the early morning hours of July 26 after a botched drug deal.

Natale-Hjorth’s father said he visited his son at Rome’s Regina Coeli prison on Wednesday morning and described the meeting as “very emotional but also very hard for both of us,” according to a statement issued through a lawyer for the family.

“Gabriel is distraught by what happened and cannot come to terms with it,” Fabrizio Natale said in the statement. “We are deeply upset by his predicament, while at the same time fully convinced of his innocence.”

Investigators have alleged that Elder and Natale-Hjorth, who are both U.S. citizens and residents of Northern California, were trying to buy drugs in Rome before the slaying, but were sold a fake substance, an Italian police spokesman told ABC News.

They are accused of then robbing a man who had directed them to the drug dealer in the first place, stealing his backpack and demanding he pay them 100 euros and a gram of cocaine to get it back. The man agreed but, unbeknownst to Elder and Natale-Hjorth, he also contacted authorities, according to the police spokesman.

Cerciello Rega, who had just returned to duty from his honeymoon, responded to the call with his partner at around 3 a.m. local time. Both officers were in plainclothes when they confronted the suspects on a street near an upscale hotel in Rome where the teens were staying.

A scuffle ensued and Elder allegedly stabbed Cerciello Rega 11 times, while Natale-Hjorth allegedly punched Cerciello Rega’s partner repeatedly, according to police reports made public on Saturday. Elder allegedly used a 7-inch fix-blade combat knife during the four-minute encounter, according to a court document leaked to media outlets and obtained by ABC News.

Police say Elder and Natale-Hjorth were captured on surveillance video fleeing the scene with the stolen backpack. The duo were tracked down at their hotel, a block away from the scene and near Rome’s Tiber River, police said.

Investigators also claim that they discovered a knife believed to be the murder weapon and blood-soaked clothes hidden in the ceiling of the teens’ hotel room, police said.

A coroner concluded that Cerciello Rega bled to death, according to Italian news reports. A funeral for Ceriello Rega was held Monday in his hometown of Somma Vesuviana, in the same church where he and his wife were married six weeks ago.

“Gabriel never imagined there would be a confrontation and did not know his friend was armed,” Natale-Hjorth’s father said in his statement Wednesday. “He only became aware of what actually happened after his arrest. Over the last few days I have read many inaccuracies being reported about my son by the papers. Gabriel is just a teenager, who last year started college hoping to become an architect. He is devastated by the carabiniere’s death, and I for one, as a father, painfully feel his family’s grief.”

Natale-Hjorth’s lawyer, Fabio Alonzi, told ABC News that the teen was on a family vacation in Italy with his father and grandparents at the time of the incident.

“He got in touch with Elder through social media,” Alonzi said, “and they agreed to spend one day together in Rome, that ended the way we all know. But he had no idea that his friend had a knife with him.”

Alonzi said the teen is “stressed,” “cries constantly” and is “very shaken.”

Elder and Natale-Hjorth were questioned by police for hours and, when “faced with overwhelming evidence, they confessed,” according to the Provincial Command of Rome.

On Sunday, Italian newspapers published a leaked photo of what appears to be Natale-Hjorth blindfolded and handcuffed while in custody, prompting questions about the pair’s confessions. It is illegal to blindfold a suspect in Italy, and police and prosecutors are carrying out separate investigations into the blindfolding.

“I will refrain from commenting on the treatment to which Gabriel was subjected during his arrest,” Natale-Hjorth’s father said in his statement Wednesday. “I understand the Italian authorities have initiated an inquest and I trust they will ascertain any responsibilities.”

Gen. Francesco Gargaro, the commander of the Carabinieri in Italy’s capital, told reporters that Cerciello Rega had “forgotten his gun” that fateful night, but there was still “no time” for the policemen to react and the suspects then took off. Cerciello Rega’s partner could not have used his weapon on the suspects as they fled because it’s a serious crime and was trying to help the wounded officer, Gargaro said.

“There were no chance to use weapons,” Gargaro told reporters at a press conference Tuesday.

Elder claimed he allegedly stabbed Ceriello Rega in self-defense, telling police he “feared for his life,” according to the court document obtained by ABC News.

Investigators concluded that “it’s clear that the perpetrator of the stabbing” was Elder, according to the court document.

Elder’s father arrived in Rome on Thursday morning to visit him but walked past the line of reporters and cameras awaiting him.

The Elder family’s attorney, Craig Peters, told ABC San Francisco station KGO that the parents were still “grieving” for the loved ones of the slain policeman but were looking forward to seeing their son and hopefully getting some answers.

“This is actually where they spent their honeymoon,” Peters told KGO in an exclusive interview in Rome on Thursday morning. “They have a great love for Italy. They feel devastated that this happened here.”

“We need to get some answers to some questions that we don’t feel are getting asked in the media right now about this investigation,” the lawyer added. “I don’t know what happened. I am convinced at this point that there is a pretty good chance that the police don’t know what happened.”

The Italian public television channel RAI aired photos apparently posted to Elder’s Instagram account before the slaying that showed Elder holding a knife, and police are looking into the photos as part of the investigation.

The Elder family’s attorney said the photos were taken in San Francisco before the teen’s trip to Italy.

“The kid had a knife,” Peters told KGO. “At least in San Francisco certainly, in America, that is not a super surprising thing. People carry it for protection.”

“That doesn’t really help us get to the bottom of what happened,” he added.

Iran calls US sanctions on its foreign minister ‘childish’

WORLD NEWS Iran calls US sanctions on its foreign minister 'childish'  https://linewsradio.com/iran-calls-us-sanctions-on-its-foreign-minister-childish/  http://abcnewsradioonline.com/world-news/rss.xml

studiocasper/iStock(NEW YORK) — Iran’s leadership called U.S. sanctions against its foreign minister “childish” and pushed back on the Trump administration’s assertion that he did not speak for the country’s decision makers.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday that the United States’ announcement this week was targeting Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, and reflected “childish behavior,” the Iranian official news agency IRNA reported.

The Trump administration on Wednesday announced it was sanctioning Zarif for acting as a “propaganda minister” on behalf of Iran’s supreme leader, himself sanctioned by the United States in June.

“For far too long he’s been indulged as the reasonable and credible representative of Iran, and today President Donald Trump decided that enough is enough,” a senior administration official told reporters Wednesday. She said he acted as a “propaganda minister, not a foreign minister.”

While critics condemned the administration for seeming to close the door to diplomacy, the White House argued this week that Zarif now holds less sway. The official said that if the United States wanted to speak with Iran, it would talk to “somebody who’s a significant decision maker.”

Rouhani on Thursday, though, wrote on Twitter that Zarif “ably talks & negotiates on behalf of the entire nation” of Iran. He said the U.S. move “indicates that White House is frightened by his diplomatic capabilities.”

Trump on June 24 signed an executive order imposing sanctions on Iran’s leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and the administration said on Wednesday that the sanctions on Zarif fell under that order. National security adviser John Bolton told Fox News on Thursday that Zarif was “just a mouthpiece” for Iran — labeling him “a conman,” “a shill” and “a grifter.”

Zarif negotiated Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. He has served as a key conduit between foreign diplomats and Iran’s leadership for years, and has worked to salvage the nuclear agreement after Trump pulled the United States out of it last year.

Zarif himself dismissed the sanctions, writing in a tweet Wednesday that they would have “no effect on me or my family.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo granted a visa for Zarif to visit the United States last month — but limited him to visiting just a few locations in New York, including the United Nations and Iran’s diplomatic mission there. The senior administration official on Wednesday said future travel to the United States would be considered “on a case-by-case basis.”
