Donald Sterling -- Ironically Slated to Receive NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award Next Month

It's stunning to say the least ... Donald Sterling has been tapped by the L.A. chapter of the NAACP for a Lifetime Achievement Award ... at a gala event next month.

Leon Jenkins, Prez of the L.A. branch, has said in the past, "He has a unique history of giving to the children of L.A."  Sterling donates thousands of Clippers tickets to local youth groups.

There have been several earlier allegations Sterling was a racist

He's famously racist and being honored by the NAACP, maybe the NBA isn't the only organization that needs some introspection.

More renounce US citizenship but deny stereotype

Inside the long-awaited package, six pages of government paperwork dryly affirmed Carol Tapanila's anxious request. But when Tapanila slipped the contents from the brown envelope, she saw there was something more.

"We the people...." declared the script inside her U.S. passport — now with four holes punched through it from cover to cover. Her departure from life as an American was stamped final on the same page: "Bearer Expatriated Self."

With the envelope's arrival, Tapanila, a native of upstate New York who has lived in Canada since 1969, joined a largely overlooked surge of Americans rejecting what is, to millions, a highly sought prize: U.S. citizenship. Last year, the U.S. government reported a record 2,999 people renounced citizenship or terminated permanent residency; most are widely assumed to be driven by a desire to avoid paying taxes on hidden wealth.

The reality, though, is more complicated. The government's pursuit of tax evaders among Americans living abroad is indeed driving the jump in abandoned citizenship, experts say. But renouncers — whose ranks have swelled more than five-fold from a decade ago — often contradict the stereotype of the financial scoundrel. Many are from very ordinary economic circumstances.

South Korea ferry disaster: All navigation crew 'held'

Source: BBC

All 15 crew members involved in the navigation of the ill-fated South Korean passenger ferry Sewol are now reportedly in custody, facing criminal negligence charges.

The prosecution requested arrest warrants for four additional crew members. Eleven others, including the captain, had been detained earlier.

The ferry with 476 people on board sank off South Korea on 16 April.

Divers have recovered 183 bodies, but scores are missing presumed drowned.


On Friday, divers found 48 bodies of students wearing lifejackets in a single room on the vessel meant to accommodate just over 30 people.

Small boy mistakes Jersey City sand mandala for playground, destroys hours of work

Jersey City received a lesson on the impermanence of life a bit earlier than planned today, when a toddler mistook a Buddhist sand mandala for a playground this morning, smudging the center and sides and almost destroying days of painstaking work.

Three Tibetan monks have been hard at work since Monday morning on the mandala, which are created and then destroyed in a ceremony to symbolize the fleeting nature of life. That ceremony, a 2,500-year Tibetan tradition, was scheduled for later today.

The mandala, made from millions of grains of sand in various hues, was about one hour from completion.

Councilman at large Daniel Rivera was inside the rotunda when it happened, along with dozens of individuals who came to 280 Grove St. for a naturalization ceremony this morning.

Rivera said the levity in the rotunda ended as soon as the boy jumped onto the mandala.

"Everybody's heart stopped," he said.

Conn. police: Man held sister captive for years

A Seymour man was arrested Thursday evening after an investigation revealed he had locked his 56-year-old sister in her bedroom in the home they shared and held her captive over a period of several years.

Seymour Police Officers arrested 58-year-old Arthur Gauvin of 10 Eleanor Road, Seymour. Gauvin was charged with first-degree unlawful restraint, second-degree reckless endangerment, and cruelty to persons. Gauvin was released after he posted a $20,000 bond.

However, after being released from custody Gauvin made a threatening comment to a family member in front of officers. Gauvin was immediately placed under arrest a second time and was charged with Tampering with a Witness. Gauvin was held on a $25,000 bond which he could not post and was arraigned this morning at the Derby Superior Court on all the charges listed above.

The incident unfolded shortly before 7:30 p.m. Thursday when Seymour Police received an anonymous call from someone stating they were concerned for the welfare of the allegedly captive woman. Officers responded and were let inside the residence by family members and spoke to Gauvin. While speaking to Gauvin, officers immediately detected a foul odor inside of the residence. They were led to a bedroom in the house where the female victim was located. Officers found the female victim to be covered in filth with urine and human feces covering her entire body. The victim was disheveled and it was immediately apparent she had not been bathed in a long period of time. She was frail, extremely thin and appeared to be malnourished. Officers found a locking clasp on the outside of the bedroom door that prevented the female from exiting her bedroom.

Oil Futures Sag on Record Supplies

Source: Wall Street Journal

Oil futures slumped this past week as domestic stockpiles hit record levels, while concerns about supply disruptions kept global prices nearly flat.

Light, sweet crude for June delivery settled down $1.34, or 1.3%, on Friday at $100.60 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the lowest settlement price since April 7. For the week, prices dropped 2.7%.

Crude-oil supplies have risen in 13 of the past 14 weeks and stand at 397.7 million barrels, the highest recorded level since the U.S. Energy Information Administration began tracking weekly data in 1982. According to monthly data going back to 1920, supplies are at their highest since 1931.

"The inventories have really been key this week," said Oliver Sloup, director of managed futures at futures brokerage iiTrader in Chicago. "Right now, it almost seems like the U.S. is choking on crude oil."

U.S. oil production has boomed in recent years, as new technologies have enabled energy producers to access supplies trapped in shale-oil fields.

Retail prices don't seem to reflect this glut.

supplies are at their highest since 1931.

Alleged Hillary Clinton shoe thrower arraigned

Source: Associated Press

A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas remains in federal custody after pleading not guilty to two criminal charges.

Alison Ernst, 36, entered the pleas to misdemeanor counts of trespassing and violence against a person during her arraignment late Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach then granted the government's request to keep Ernst in federal custody, saying she was a flight risk and danger to the community. She is being held at a jail operated by a federal contractor in Pahrump, 63 miles west of Las Vegas.

Ferenbach raised concerns about Ernst's residency status and mental health condition, Natalie Collins, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Nevada, told The Associated Press.
