the green eyed monster strikes again …. whoa nellie ….


ROCKVILLE, Md. (WJLA) - A Maryland lawmaker is accused of flashing her bare breasts during a clash with her ex-husband.

Montgomery County Police have charged Del. Ariana Kelly (D-Montgomery) with indecent exposure and trespassing, both misdemeanors.
Investigators say on June 27, Kelly drove to her ex-husband's home along the 5300 block of Alta Vista Road in Bethesda in order to drop-off her son and daughter, ages eleven and nine. However, as the trio approached the front door, Kelly noticed her ex-husband's new fiancé was inside the two story red brick house

Enraged, Kelly began to repeatedly ring the doorbell and bang on the home’s wooden front door. Moments later, the 38-year-old politician allegedly lifted-up her shirt and flashed her bare breasts. Appalled, Barak Sanford, a prominent investment banker, reportedly used a cell phone to record his ex-wife grab hold of her breasts and shake them up-and-down while standing on the front stoop.
"All-in-all, this is one of the strangest local events I've ever heard of, and it couldn't be more local, I'm only like 50-to-60 yards away," neighbor Geoffrey Marks remarked.
Sanford called 911 and asked that police be dispatched to his home. A responding officer politely asked Kelly to leave three separate times, at which point the elected official is said to have extended both of her wrists and state, "arrest me then." The officer complied with her wishes.

Simmons also made clear that he and his client aggressively dispute the charges. One legal question that could likely be addressed in court: Does exposing one's breasts to one's ex-husband in a semi-private place truly constitute indecent exposure...?
“And regardless of what someone thinks of the incident, called police on the mother of his own children,” Simmons asserted.

Canadian conservation officer refuses to kill orphaned cubs gets suspended w/o pay

A Canadian conservation officer has been suspended without pay after refusing to kill two bear cubs whose mother had been euthanized.
The older bear was reportedly shot and killed after it repeatedly raided a freezer in a mobile home located south of Port Hardy in British Columbia, according to the Huffington Post. After the conservation service was called, officers were forced to euthanize the bear, yet her cubs later returned to the property, climbing a tree and calling out for their mother.

Officer Bryce Casavant was able to tranquilize the bear cubs, a brother and sister estimated to be 8-weeks-old. Despite an order to kill the bear cubs from his superiors, Casavant transported them to a veterinarian, who found the animals to be healthy. The bears were then taken to a recovery center operated by the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association in Errington, according to the Independent.

Robin Campbell, who manages the center, asserted that Casavant did the right thing, despite his orders. Calling the directive to kill the bear cubs unusual, he pointed out that they could be reintroduced to the wild, as they have yet to become acclimated to human beings.
“In 30 years, this is the first time we’ve ever had an issue like this,” he observed. “There has to be some kind of misunderstanding… hopefully somebody will come to their senses. was a problem, but these cubs did nothing.”

Casavant has since been suspended without pay for refusing to kill the bear cubs, pending a performance review. A Change.org petition has been started by his supporters, calling upon British Columbia’s environment minister, Mary Polak, to reinstate him. It has garnered 18,000 signatures in just its first 24 hours.

new AIDS vaccine protects monkeys


There's progress in the quest for an AIDS vaccine. An experimental vaccine protected half of a batch of monkeys against a virus similar to the AIDS virus, scientists reported Thursday.
The company helping develop the vaccine is already trying it in people, and vaccine experts say it takes a new approach to trying to protect against a virus that's proved almost impossible to stop.
"I think it is quite promising," said Mitchell Warren of the HIV vaccine and treatment advocacy group AVAC.

"In AVAC's 20-year history we have seen a bunch of products never get to efficacy trials. Those that have have mostly failed," said Warren, who was not involved in the latest studies.
The two studies reported in the journal Science show that a two-step vaccine not only protects half the monkeys, but that their bodies produce antibodies that can be measured and that show how well-protected the monkeys are.

We do not know for sure whether a vaccine that protects in monkeys will in fact protect in humans," said Dr. Dan Barouch of Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Ragon Institute at Harvard, MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital.
But Barouch, who led the study, says he thinks this one may. It's because the monkeys were first vaccinated and then repeatedly given large doses of an extremely virulent monkey version of HIV called SIV. And the immune response to the vaccine was strong.

Leland Yee pleads guilty to racketeering

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An ex-California state senator has pleaded guilty to a racketeering charge in an organized crime and public corruption case centered in San Francisco's Chinatown.

Leland Yee entered the plea on Wednesday and could face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in October.
The FBI arrested Yee and 19 others in 2014 during a series of raids, one of which targeted a Chinese fraternal organization.
Yee was accused of soliciting and accepting bribes in exchange for providing help from Sacramento.

The FBI also alleged that the San Francisco Democrat, who was running for secretary of state at the time, conspired to connect an undercover agent with an international arms dealer in exchange for campaign contributions.
Yee previously pleaded not guilty to bribery, money laundering and other felony charges.
