    In this article WBD 6758.T-JPFollow your favorite stocksCREATE FREE ACCOUNTViola Davis stars in Sony's "The Woman King."Sony"The Woman King" held firm at the box office during its second weekend in theaters. The Sony film is expected to generate $11.2 million in ticket sales domestically from Friday through Sunday, a 42% drop from its opening weekend. Typically, blockbuster films will drop 50% to 70% from their first weekend to their second weekend. "Proof that ''The Woman King' is in it for the long haul is reflected in its 42% second-weekend drop," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. "As expected, great word of mouth and awards season buzz has helped the film to become a must-see movie event." Box-office analysts expect "The Woman King" will easily recoup its $50 million production budget and has the potential to expand to a broader audience as word of mouth spreads, much like Paramount and Skydance's "Top Gun: Maverick" has in recent months. Additionally, Warner Bros.' "Don't Worry Darling," a film with a $35 million production budget, is expected to haul in $19.2 million during...

    A 63-year-old Fairfield County man admitted to sending sexual messages, pictures, and videos to an FBI agent posing as a 14-year-old girl. Michael Nastu, of Bridgeport, pleaded guilty on Thursday, Sept. 22, to one count of attempted transfer of obscene materials to a minor, according to Vanessa Roberts Avery, United States attorney for the District of Connecticut. Nastu used the Kik social media application in March of 2021 to initiate a conversation with an FBI Online Covert Employee who was posing as a 14-year-old girl from Connecticut, the US Attorney's Office said. Between March 31 and June 25, 2021, Nastu sent the FBI employee sexually-explicit messages and pictures and videos of male genitalia, Avery reported.  He also tried to get the FBI employee to send him child pornography, according to the announcement. Although they exchanged messages about meeting in person, Nastu never traveled to meet the FBI agent, Avery said. The US Attorney's Office said Nastu was arrested on June 30, 2021, and is released on $100,000 bond pending sentencing, which hasn't been scheduled.

    by William A. Jacobson   The New York Attorney General’s Office is a powerful institution, comprised of over 650 assistant attorney generals and 1,700 employees, with statutory criminal and civil enforcement authority over almost every aspect of life in the state. With that great power comes great responsibility to be politically neutral, to enforce the laws not for political gain and not to exact political revenge. Concerns over past prosecutorial abuse of power led to the creation in 2021 of the New York Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct, designed to hold prosecutors “to the highest ethical standards in the exercise of their duties.” Political neutrality of prosecutors in the conduct of their duties is at the core of what our system of justice should look like. Unfortunately, political neutrality is not what Attorney General Letitia James has delivered. Instead, James ran for office on a promise to get Donald Trump on something, anything, and has conducted herself in office to exact political revenge on the former president, his businesses, and his family. Her legion of prosecutors and investigators have poured over and looked into every nook and...
    Share this: A new mayoral office: The Office of Urban Agriculture, was initiated by Mayor Eric Adams last Friday as Climate Week came to a close. The office will seek to strengthen community gardens and urban farms contingent on the mayor’s efforts to make the city more healthy, equitable and sustainable. “Making our cityscape greener isn’t just a slogan — it’s a centerpiece of our agenda,” said Mayor Adams. “Urban agriculture is a growing industry in our city that has the potential to expand the supply of healthy and locally-grown food, create jobs, and make our city more resilient. Qiana brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this role, and as director of the new Office of Urban Agriculture, she will play an integral role in advancing my food and sustainability agenda.” In 2021, the mayor’s office released “The New Agrarian Economy” which outlined a blueprint of modern urban agriculture in New York. The Office of Urban Agriculture, spearheaded by Qiana Mickie, will advance new efforts in the agricultural sector.
    Most workers insist they can work productively from home but their bosses overwhelmingly disagree, a survey found. The Microsoft poll found that 80 per cent of managers think employees get more done in the office. But 87 per cent of their staff feel they are just as efficient at home – or more so. The technology giant asked more than 20,000 workers across 11 countries their views on working from home. Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella told the BBC: 'We have to get past what we describe as "productivity paranoia" because all of the data we have that shows that 80 per cent-plus of the individual people feel they're very productive – except their management thinks that they're not productive. 'That means there is a real disconnect in terms of the expectations and what they feel.' More than 85 per cent of workers feel they are just as efficient at home – or more so Mr Nadella and Ryan Roslansky, boss of LinkedIn, the Microsoft-owned networking site for professionals, said Covid had triggered one of the greatest shifts in work...
    When imperious Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner sent his staff on an assignment, he always made one thing clear — the magazine that saw itself as the bible of rock music demanded the definitive story on its biggest stars. Even so, it seemed clear to him that his favourite photographer, Annie Leibovitz, might have gone beyond the call of duty one evening as she padded up a white sand beach in Barbados behind Mick Jagger. They were all on holiday together on the Caribbean island over Thanksgiving in 1979 and, sitting around over cigarettes and cognacs after dinner with their host, music tycoon Ahmet Ertegun, Bianca Jagger suddenly asked where her husband had got to. Nobody knew — or indeed where the flamboyant, 6ft tall Leibovitz had gone either, as she too had mysteriously vanished. Then the Rolling Stone suddenly appeared — with sand all over the knees of his trousers — closely followed by the photographer who Wenner had assigned to cover the band. Tom Leonard: 'When imperious Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner sent his staff on an assignment, he...

    The average American has lost $4,200 in income due to soaring inflation and rising interest rates, according to an analysis by the Heritage Foundation.  Experts at the right-leaning think tank analyzed consumer prices data and the Federal Reserve's interest rates. Consumer prices have risen 12.7 percent since 2021, far outpacing wages and Heritage experts believe this has cost Americans about $3,000 each in purchasing power.  As the Fed pushes interest rates to a range of 3-3.25 percent, higher borrowing costs are squeezing Americans on mortgages, vehicle loans and credit cards, costing another $1,200 per year.  The $4,200 loss erases the $4,000 increase in annual earnings that occurred under the Trump administration, according to Heritage.  'Instead of correcting course over a year ago when inflation began rising, the Biden administration and Congress continued the profligate spending spree and the Fed let the printing presses roll,' E.J. Antoni, who found the data, said in a statement. 'Many Americans have taken on additional debt to cope with higher living costs. Now, the Fed is finally fighting inflation, which is pushing up...
    The debate stage is finally set between New York’s two gubernatorial candidates, Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin and current Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul, though quarreling over the debates themselves drags on. On Wednesday, Sept. 21, Hochul’s campaign committed to a single, one-hour televised debate between Zeldin, which will take place Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at Pace University in Manhattan. It will air on Spectrum News NY1. Earlier Report: 'Never Been In Question': NY Gov. Kathy Hochul Says She Will Debate Lee Zeldin “Governor Hochul looks forward to debating on Oct. 25 and highlighting the clear contrast between her strong record of delivering results and Lee Zeldin’s extreme agenda,” campaign spokesman Jerrel Harvey said. "While Zeldin continues to push his far-right plans to ban abortion and roll back commonsense gun safety laws, Governor Hochul remains committed to building a stronger, safer, and more affordable New York." Zeldin, though, said he was “rejecting” the idea of holding just one debate before the election, calling Hochul’s proposal “unacceptable.” In a video posted on Twitter Thursday, Sept. 22, the congressman pointed out...
    watch nowVIDEO3:5503:55Emilio Estefan talks Latinos in show businessLeadership Legendary music producer Emilio Estefan weighed in with his take on how to boost Latino representation in showbiz. Latinos, he said, should be true to their identities. "I feel proud that I didn't have to change my last name I didn't have to change my sound because people liked it," he said. "We bring something a little bit different and that's what makes America." The Cuban-American Estefan, who is married to superstar singer Gloria Estefan, has endured one of the relatively few key figures in American show business. He's won 19 Grammys, and President Barack Obama awarded both Gloria and Emilio Estefan the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015. While Latino spending is a driving force in the American economy, representation in media is still lacking, according to a new report by the Latino Donor Collaborative. In 2022, only 3.1% of lead actors in TV shows are Latinos, and the percentage of representation in films is no better. Yet, at the box office, Hispanic customers purchased 29% or $2.9 billion of all...

    (CNN)Employees of the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General's office are calling on President Joe Biden to fire Inspector General Joseph Cuffari, according to a letter obtained by the Project on Government Oversight."The mission of DHS OIG is to provide independent oversight and promote excellence, integrity, and accountability within DHS," the employees wrote in the letter signed by "Concerned DHSOIG employees representing every program office at every grade level." The employees said they didn't want to sign their names for fear of retaliation."Therefore, the highest priorities of an inspector general are integrity and independence.

    Richard Lathan wasn’t sure how to react when he got a letter in July informing him that the Los Angeles police detective who helped put him in prison for murder had made a racist remark about Black people. A glimmer of optimism that the revelation could win him a new trial collided with the profound anger he felt about the more than three decades he has spent in prison for a crime he says he didn’t commit. Lathan had always suspected the detective, Brian McCartin, targeted him simply because he was Black and a gang member. And something else about the letter bothered Lathan: It said McCartin, who is now retired, made the remarks in 2014. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, however, didn’t notify Lathan about them until this summer — eight years after prosecutors first learned of the comments and four years after The Times published a front-page story detailing them. Why, he wondered, hadn’t he been told sooner? It is a basic rule of the U.S. justice system that prosecutors must turn over to defendants...
    (CNN)Some $45.6 billion in pandemic unemployment benefits may have been fraudulently paid to criminals between March 2020 and April 2022, the US Department of Labor's Office of the Inspector General said in a memorandum on Thursday. It's the latest report to identify widespread schemes to steal money from a variety of federal relief programs.The updated figure is a big jump from the $16 billion in potentially fraudulent unemployment payments that the office cited in a June 2021 alert, which looked at claims from March through October of 2020. Since then, there were increases in payments tied to Social Security numbers of people who filed in multiple states, who were deceased and who used suspicious email accounts in their claims -- all deemed high-risk areas. The 2021 alert also found payments tied to Social Security numbers of federal prisoners to be a high-risk area. The office said in Thursday's memorandum that it could not update that figure because of a lack of new data from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which declined to provide it because of the burden the request...

Steven Hernandez, of the Bronx, was sentenced on Thursday, Sept. 22, to five years in state prison after pleading guilty to first-degree attempted rape in May, Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah announced. The woman was about to enter an apartment building with her grandchild in Yonkers at about 1:20 p.m. on July 30, 2021, when Hernandez grabbed her from behind and groped her, according to the announcement.

Vito Frabizio, of Deer Park, pleaded guilty to three counts of third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and one count of second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia, Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond Tierney announced on Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Threats targeting a county fair and school activities in Maryland are actively being investigated by police, according to officials. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is investigating non-specific and generalized threats of violence regarding the St. Mary’s County Fair and public high school football games and other school activities, the agency announced.

    A Westchester County baseball coach has been sentenced to prison for having sex with a 16-year-old player. Westchester County District Attorney Miriam Rocah announced that 31-year-old Mount Vernon resident Robert Pope was sentenced on Thursday, Sept. 22, to the maximum term of four years in state prison for engaging in sexual activity with a 16-year-old.

    An escapee who absconded from a court-ordered treatment program in Maryland following an assault arrest is on the loose, the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office is advising. The agency issued an alert on Thursday, Sept. 22 regarding Leonardtown resident Robert Alan Mandley, Jr., 32, after he went AWOL from his program earlier this month after an arrest for first-degree assault.

    A Florida man allegedly shot his ex-wife and her son in front of his two young children during an argument over the electric bill in the home the divorced couple shared. Michael D. Williams, 47, of Deland - near Orlando - was arrested on September 18 by the Volusia Sherriff's Office after he called 911 and admitted shooting her ex-wife Marsha Ebanks-Williams, 48, and her son Robert Adams, 28.  'Yes, I shot him and his mother,' Williams told the dispatcher, according to the 911 recording, obtained by WESH. 'I had my weapon on me and while they were attacking me, I basically, I had to, basically. I shot them.'  The Sheriff's Office questioned his narrative that he was punched in the face and kicked by the mother and son, citing his mugshot photo showing no visible signs of injuries.  'He claims he was violently attacked by these two, now, I don't see anything on this guy,' Chief Deputy Brian Henderson said at a press conference. 'This does not look like a violent attack that warrants being shot multiple times.'  Williams - who...
    In the investigations he subsequently participated in, he claimed that the D.C. field office was "manipulating" FBI case-management protocol. "Cases are ordinarily characterized and labeled by the originating field office," noted Jordan, "with leads 'cut' to other field offices for specific assistance in that geographic location." The FBI was, however, said to have been engaged in a "manipulative casefile practice" whereby it disseminated J6 cases to local field offices around the country to generate "false and misleading crime statistics." According to Friend's complaint cited by Jordan, "Instead of hundreds of investigations stemming from a single, black swan incident at the Capitol, FBI and [Department of Justice] officials point to significant increases in domestic violent extremism and terrorism around the United States." Jordan wrote that "the FBI's case categorization creates the illusion that threats from ["domestic violent extremism" or DVE] are present in jurisdictions across the nation, when in reality they all stem from the same related investigation concerning the actions at the Capitol on Jan 6." A potential result of this alleged "artificial case categorization scheme" is that...
    A Dedham veterinarian will pay $15,000 to resolve allegations that he improperly stored, ordered and kept records of controlled substances, the US Attorney's Office for Massachusetts reports.  An investigation revealed that Wilbur Salter, II D.V.M., who practices at Animed Pet Hospital in Dedham, violated multiple Controlled Substance Act (CSA) provisions for keeping inadequate records of several controlled substances, the office reports.  “It is essential that all prescribers—including veterinarians—keep accurate records of controlled substances so that we can identify and prevent any diversion, especially in the midst of a rampant and destructive opioid epidemic,” said United States Attorney Rachael Rollins. “We will enforce compliance of these important safeguards.” While under investigation, Salter gave up his registration with the Drug Enforcement Administration. However, Salter continued to store several controlled substances at his home without registering his address with the DEA, the office reports.  “The DEA is committed to ensuring that all registrants are in compliance with the required regulations, which are enforceable through the Controlled Substances Act,” said Brian Boyle, special agent in charge of the DEA, Boston Division. “Failure to do so increases...

Bringing the highest-grossing film of all time back to theaters has two purposes for Disney: drum up excitement for "The Way of Water" and fill a vacant spot on the theatrical calendar. The sequel is one of four due over the next decade. The rerelease of the original film is a sort of litmus test for whether audiences still want to visit its eco-conscious science fiction world. "Many questions have been asked about the film's pop culture legacy over the past decade, but we also have to remember that James Cameron has been doubted before and proven many wrong," said Shawn Robbins, chief analyst at BoxOffice.com.Read more media coverageNew investment firm targets growing sports and media ecosystem'The Woman King' poised for big box-office run after strong opening weekendTom Rutledge, who turned Charter into...
    Bigger terminals, nicer concession areas, and improved security screening are just some of the modernization projects that will benefit from the $230 million awarded to nine airports across New York. The awards are granted through the Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Competition. Funding is meant to pay for airport projects that “promote, revitalize, and accelerate investments in upstate commercial passenger service airports, helping to create airports for the 21st century,” the governor’s office said. "Our upstate airports are our gateways to local economies and make lasting impressions, connecting New Yorkers and tourists to the beautiful destinations that the Empire State has to offer," Gov. Kathy Hochul said. "By making critical investments to further modernize facilities across upstate New York, we are lifting upstate airports to new heights and providing a 21st century transportation experience that travelers expect and deserve." Several project types were considered, including those that help move passengers more safely and efficiently, and those with new innovations in contactless technology, the governor’s office said. Among the airports that were awarded funding are Albany International, Saratoga County,...

    A Boston Lyft driver has been convicted for raping a female Berklee music student while she was unconscious in the back seat of his car, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. Joseph Piard picked up the student in front of her friend's apartment in the overnight hours of July 31, 2019, the office reports. When asked to be taken to her apartment on Beacon Street, Piard instead drove her to the wrong address. She then got back in Piard's car and fell asleep while he dropped off two other passengers, the office reports.  The next thing the woman remembered was waking up in an unfamiliar area around 7 a.m. At that point said Piard he was waiting for her to wake up before driving her home, the office reports. Although Piard assured the woman that nothing happened to her, she felt the opposite.  The woman underwent a sexual assault examination at a local hospital and met with detectives. While Piard denied doing anything to the woman, he agreed to give a DNA sample.  The results matched Piard's DNA, at which point he admitted to inappropriately touching...
    Far-right Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been drawing a great deal of criticism from Democrats — as well as some Never Trump conservatives — for sending two planes of migrants, many of them from Venezuela, to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. DeSantis critics have been saying that it wasn’t hard to figure out why he chose Martha’s Vineyard for his political stunt: Massachusetts, home of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, is a deep blue state — and DeSantis, during an election year, wanted to show off his ability to “own the liberals.” On Monday, September 19 in Bexar County, Texas — where the flight of migrants originated before going to Florida and later, Martha’s Vineyard — Sheriff Javier Salazar announced that he would be opening a criminal investigation of DeSantis. And since then, according to Vice’s Paul Blest, Salazar’s office has been inundated with “threats.” Salazar, at a press conference, told reporters he believes the migrants were “lured” to Martha’s Vineyard under “false pretenses” in violation of both county and federal law. In a brochure that Popular Information posted on September 19, migrants were...
    NBC legal correspondent Tom Winter rebutted one of former President Donald Trump’s lines of attack on New York Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday after James filed a lawsuit alleging Trump committed fraud in the state. “And to distract and talk about New York City crime and something outside the purview of today’s today’s allegations in a civil case,” noted MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell as she introduced Winter. “I do want to tell you, we reached out to the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York and a spokesperson for Damian Williams said they’re going to decline to comment for now on this criminal referral that the attorney general is sending over to their office in the IRS criminal division, who we’ve also reached out to for comment,” began Winter, noting that James said she referred the allegations that Trump committed fraud by over evaluating properties and assets to the IRS for a criminal investigation. “As far as the statement from the former president about crime in New York, we should be clear that the New York attorney...
    A 39-year-old registered sex offender has been charged with disturbing human remains in connection with the homicide investigation of a 34-year-old Kearny man this week, authorities said. Authorities wouldn't immediately say why, but Elliot Barton was charged with desecration of human remains involving Corey McFadden's killing, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said.

    A Boston man who authorities say has a history of attacking corrections officers is now accused of beating a female caseworker last week while at the Nashua Street Jail.  Ahmad Maiden, 43, faces charges of assault and battery on a correctional facility employee, disturbing a correctional institution, and threats from the alleged attack, the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said.  Officials said Maiden was meeting with the woman on Thursday, Sept. 15, when he started to punch her in the face and head. It's unclear what sparked the alleged violent outburst. Correctional officers quickly separated them, and paramedics rushed the woman to Massachusetts General for treatment, authorities said. The prosecutor's office did not release any information on her injuries.  As officers were restraining Maiden after the attack, he threatened that he would have them killed, the DA's office said.  Maiden is accused of attacking a corrections officer last month, as well. He's also charged with beating a family member last year, the prosecutor's office said.  Suffolk County officials transferred Maiden to the Essex County Sheriff's Department to hold him before his trials. 
    SAN JOSE — Economic ailments spawned by the coronavirus still afflict downtown San Jose, where sales taxes have cratered, city officials say, but Google’s transit village could help to ease the urban core’s maladies. Sales taxes citywide have nearly recovered to their pre-COVID levels and are down only 1%, Nanci Klein, San Jose’s director of economic development, told a gathering Wednesday sponsored by law firm Hoge Fenton to discuss real estate in the city. In sharp contrast, sales taxes in downtown San Jose have plunged 38.5% below their pre-COVID levels, Klein said. “There are areas of the downtown that are really struggling,” Klein said Wednesday during the meeting. However, other high-profile sections of San Jose, such as the areas of the two major malls to the west of the downtown, Santana Row and Westfield Valley Fair, enjoy robust activity. “You go to Santana Row and it is booming, you see people all over the place,” said Rosalynn Hughey, San Jose’s deputy city manager. “You go to the downtown, it’s quiet.” The work-from-home policies encouraged by government-ordered business shutdowns to combat...

He drove onto the center median and crashed head-on into an unmarked police car driven by Nassau County Police Department Officer Willard Gomes, according to the announcement.
