Bill Cosby found guilty in sexual assault trial
2018-04-26    0 views
Bill Cosby, the longtime comedian and TV legend, was convicted of sexual assault in a retrial, said reports on Thursday, April 26.

Cosby, 80, best known for “The Cosby Show” in the 1980s, was convicted of drugging a friend in 2004 before assaulting her.

After the conviction, he now faces a prison term of up to 10 years for three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, 45, after a three-week-long trial at the Montgomery County courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

For Cosby, who is elderly and in poor health, a 10-year-long prison term is essentially a death sentence.

About 60 women have publically accused Cosby over five decades of being a sexual abuser. Due to the statute of limitation, only one charge was brought against him.

“It’s a victory not just for the 62 of us who have come forward but for all survivors of sexual assault, female and male,” Cosby accuser Lily Bernard told reporters, Reuters reported. “I feel like my faith in humanity is restored.”

NY Senator Introduces Bill to Turn Post Offices into Banks
2018-04-26    0 views
New York democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

has introduced a bill that would allow
30,000 post offices to offer banking services.

Those services could include small, low-fee loans,
checking and savings accounts, and cash withdrawals.

She says offering loan services will save people
from taking out expensive payday loans

which can charge 400% the loan’s
value in annual interest.

But some have pointed out that it will be tricky
to make the government into a bank.

Taxpayers will have to pick up
the tab on defaulted loans

and possibly subsidize low interest rates
to keep them lower than the free market.

There’s also the question of whether the
government can effectively offer these services.

The USPS, one of the few companies the
federal government runs, is already struggling.

Last year, it reported a $2.7 billion net loss.

Trump gives White House reporters' kids Oval Office tour
2018-04-26    0 views
President Donald Trump treated White House journalists' children to an Oval Office visit Thursday.

The group of boys and girls accompanied their journalist parents to the White House on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Trump autographed caps and commemorative passes worn by the children before taking them into the Oval Office. He had asked the kids whether they wanted their parents in or out of the Oval Office.

"Out," they exclaimed in unison, and so the grown-ups were left to huddle around and peep through the few available windows.

"Your parents are being so nice right now," I can't believe it," said Trump, adding that the adults "don't want to be embarrassed in front of all of you."

Brooklyn Kura brings Sake to New York

Its sake, a rice wine, is made from American rice,
and the local drinking water.

Brandon Doughan and Brian Polen connected
at a wedding in Japan 5 years ago.

Both inspired by the traditional Japanese drink,
they stayed in touch afterwards.

2 years ago they quit their jobs

and have been mixing fungus, fermented rice,
water, and yeast ever since.

[[Brian Polen, Co-Founder, Brooklyn Kura]] [1:21 - 1:34]
"We want people to recognize that sake has
many of the same qualities as fine wine and craft beer.
It has a complexity, richness, history, the skill required to produce it.”

They began renovations on their warehouse
last September and opened their tap room in March.

To help familiarize people with sake, they
replaced sake cups with wine glasses.

"I like this sake. It's nice and crisp and clean. And it's pretty good."

Doughan and Polen aim to sell
about 3,600 bottles a month within a half year

and ramp up to 6,600 over the next few years.
