David Boies, representing several of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged victims, center, arrives with Annie Farmer, right, and Virginia Giuffre, alleged victims of Jeffrey Epstein, second left, at federal court in New York, U.S., on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019. Attorney Lisa Bloom (L) and Janice Dickinson speak during a press conference to announce a settlement in their defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby at The Bloom Firm on July 25, 2019 in Woodland Hills, California. Bloom allegedly offered to work with Weinstein to discredit one of his accusers. Mark Kauzlarich/Bloomberg Frederick M. Brown / Getty Images Allred’s daughter, lawyer Lisa Bloom, a prominent victims’ rights attorney, was working behind the scenes with Weinstein — at a rate of $895 an hour — to quash the journalists’ investigation and thwart his accusers. In a confidential memo to Weinstein that Bloom wrote in December 2016, which is reproduced in “She Said,” she offered to help him damage the reputation of one of his accusers, Rose McGowan, and portrayed her background as a victims’ rights advocate as an asset.“I feel equipped to help you against the Roses of the world, because I have represented so many of them,” Bloom wrote, before laying out a multistep playbook for how to intimidate accusers or paint them as liars. One of Bloom’s suggested tactics for undermining McGowan: “We can place an article re her becoming increasingly unglued, so that when someone Googles her this is what pops up and she’s discredited.”Bloom accompanied Weinstein on a surprise visit to the Times the day before the initial article was published, to present the journalists with information intended to portray several accusers — including Ashley Judd, the first actress to go on the record — as unreliable and mentally unstable.Bloom has said she was crossing sides to work for Weinstein to encourage him to apologize for his behaviour. She later told the reporters that she “deeply regretted” representing him, which she said was a “colossal mistake.”Another member of Weinstein’s legal team, attorney David Boies, helped Weinstein evade scrutiny for his treatment of women over 15 years, working to halt reporting on the producer by news outlets, blocking the board of Weinstein’s company from reviewing his personnel file, and helping Weinstein execute a contract with Black Cube, an Israeli private investigations firm, that was promised a $300,000 bonus if it stopped the Times investigation. (Ronan Farrow, who published a separate Weinstein exposé in The New Yorker in October 2017, later broke the news of Black Cube’s work for Weinstein.) “She Said” reveals emails showing that during the time that Boies represented Weinstein, the two men discussed potential film roles for Boies’ daughter, an aspiring actress.In an interview for the book, Boies said he was unaware of the underhanded tactics that Black Cube used against journalists and regretted not paying closer attention to that firm’s work. But he defended the assistance he provided to Weinstein as the producer sought to conceal allegations and said he didn’t have “any regret that I represented him the way I did.” “She Said” is among the first in a wave of new books about Weinstein and other powerful men accused of sexual misconduct. Earlier this year, Penguin Press acquired another Weinstein book by the New Yorker writer Ken Auletta. Little, Brown and Co. plans to release Farrow’s book “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators,” an account of his own investigation into Weinstein, scheduled for publication in October.Other recent and forthcoming books that grew out of the #MeToo movement and its aftermath include journalist Abigail Pesta’s account of serial sexual abuse of young gymnasts by Larry Nassar; a book by the Times reporters Rachel Abrams and James B. Stewart about former CBS chief executive Les Moonves, who was accused of sexual harassment and assault by multiple women; and a book by Miami Herald reporter Julie K. Brown about the serial sexual abuse by Jeffrey Epstein. There are also new books that grew out of reporting about Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, including the forthcoming “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh,” by Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly.Ford receives attention in “She Said,” providing for the first time an extensive account of her experience as an ambivalent figure at the center of a polarizing national scandal. She told her lawyers she did not want to testify — even as they spoke publicly about her willingness to do so in order to keep her options open.Ford’s story is often held up as a cautionary tale about the limitations of the #MeToo movement in a politically divided nation, and the cost for victims whose stories are often met with disbelief, scorn and threats. But “She Said” shows how Ford has motivated other women to open up about sexual assault.Kantor and Twohey write about a group interview they conducted that included Ford and women who had made accusations against President Donald Trump and Weinstein, including Judd, Paltrow and Chiu, the former Miramax employee. As the women spoke, Chiu felt inspired by Ford and soon afterward, decided she would go on the record for the first time. Two years before the allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against Harvey Weinstein became public, his own brother and business partner, Bob Weinstein, confronted him, pleading with him to get medical treatment for what he described as many years of “misbehaviour.”“You have brought shame to the family and your company through your misbehaviour,” Bob Weinstein wrote. “Your reaction was once more to blame the victims, or to minimize the misbehaviour in various ways. If you think nothing is wrong with your misbehaviour so in this area then announce it to your wife and family.”The previously unreported letter is reprinted in full in “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement,” a new book by Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, two reporters at The New York Times who broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged misdeeds, helping to spark the global #MeToo reckoning. The book, to be published Tuesday by Penguin Press, sheds new light on the roles that several figures played in enabling Weinstein and covering up his misdeeds, and names key sources who helped reporters break the story — including company officials, Hollywood stars and other victims of the producer’s alleged abuse.Drawing on new reporting and previously undisclosed corporate records, emails and text messages, “She Said” uncovers more on the extent of Weinstein’s alleged transgressions, and the labyrinth of secret settlements and restrictive nondisclosure agreements that allowed Weinstein and other men in positions of power to conceal their behaviour and thrive in their careers, in some cases finding new victims.Weinstein, who is facing a criminal trial on charges of sexual assault and rape, has denied ever having had nonconsensual sex and pleaded not guilty.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.One of the central figures of “She Said” is a former top executive at the Weinstein Co.: Irwin Reiter. Reiter, an accountant who worked for Weinstein for decades, was increasingly alarmed by his behaviour toward women and had raised concerns within the company, to no avail. The book discloses that it was Reiter who provided the reporters with an explosive internal memo from an employee who described Weinstein’s routine harassment of junior female employees and actresses. Reiter also alerted Kantor and Twohey, who were investigating financial settlements for sexual harassment from decades ago, to other recent accusations against Weinstein, bringing new urgency to the investigation. If you think nothing is wrong with your misbehaviour so in this area then announce it to your wife and family“She Said” similarly discloses the identity of a Weinstein accuser who has put off inquiries from journalists for 15 years, Rowena Chiu, a former assistant at Miramax who received a settlement in 1998 after Weinstein allegedly assaulted her in a hotel room. In Chiu’s account, which she shares in detail for the first time, she describes being silenced by a restrictive nondisclosure agreement and lured back to a job at Miramax in an apparent effort by Weinstein to keep her close. She struggled with depression and attempted suicide. She stayed silent for nearly 20 years, even declining to tell her husband about the predation or the settlement. (Weinstein has disputed her story.)In his first extensive comments since the Weinstein story broke, Bob Weinstein explains that he mistakenly saw his brother’s problem as sex addiction, a rationale rooted in his own previously unreported recovery from substance abuse, and how he abandoned his attempts to intervene. “I got worn out,” he told the journalists. “I said, ‘I surrender,’ see?”“She Said,” one of several forthcoming books about Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo movement, is also an exploration of investigative journalism and how The Times executed a sensitive investigation. The book chronicles how the reporting came together behind the scenes, with accounts of the journalists’ first calls to actresses who they suspected had stories about Weinstein, and their efforts to identify recipients of confidential settlements. Gwyneth Paltrow, one of Weinstein’s biggest stars over the years, was scared to go on the record but became an early, crucial source, sharing her account of sexual harassment and trying to recruit other actresses to speak.“She Said” shows how some figures who have presented themselves as allies of victims have profited from financial settlements that silence them.Attorney Gloria Allred is one of the most vocal crusaders against sexual harassment and assault. Privately, her firm helped negotiate a settlement that muffled one of Weinstein’s victims in 2004, taking a 40% cut. (The firm has also worked on settlements that silenced victims of Larry Nassar and Bill O’Reilly.) In an interview for “She Said,” Allred defends her use of confidential settlements, arguing that clients are not forced to sign them and often prefer them for reasons of privacy.

This is exactly the opposite of what the government promised to do for rural Canada in the last election,” Mayor Myron Hayduk said.The union representing workers at the centre met with Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Ahmed Hussen on Monday.“The bottom line is that the department doesn’t need to close the Case Processing Centre in Vegreville in order to expand operations in Edmonton,” said Marianne Hladun, executive vice president of the Prairies Regional branch of the Public Service Alliance of Canada.(CHED) Alberta town’s study says closure of federal centre would be a major blow

We have found my nephew after 35 years,” said Kivo Carlotto, the son of Estela. His sister Laura disappeared during the dictatorship while she was pregnant.While the family was overjoyed to find their missing relative, it was also “a terrible feeling,” Kivo Carlotto said, who said the test results confirming who his mother was, was also “a terrible shock” for his nephew.
It appears Apple is looking towards the future of their lock screens by adopting a similar gesture lock system that is found on Google Android phones. The primary benefit of the latter is for enhanced security, as instead of keying in a pass code you can create a gesture pattern to unlock your phone instead.At the moment Apple has only deployed the new lock system for use on the employee Apple Connect application, and there is no news if the same lock system will be deployed for global use. However, Apple is utilizing the technology on other internal projects, such as the mobile payment system EasyPay.You could argue that Google own the rights to the gesture based lock screens, but to be honest Apple hold all the cards when it comes to multi-touch gestures as they certainly have enough patents to cover any comeback from the search giant.Apple will be aware that in some cases you can make out finger prints on the screen (even though modern Apple phone screens are coated in special olephobic coating to resist finger prints). This means that in certain light conditions you could potentially work out the security pattern, thus making the system less appealing for use commercially.Read more at 9to5 Mac
Apple : la nouvelle bêta d’iO5 disponible sur l’iPhoneApple a annoncé la sortie de l’iOS 5 bêta 4 pour les utilisateurs de son iPhone. Une mise à jour qui diffère des précédentes, notamment par sa fonction très attendue et baptisée “over the air”.Avec la dernière bêta du système d’exploitation pour iPhone iOS 5, les utilisateurs du dernier smartphone d’Apple vont voir leur souhait enfin réalisé. En effet, jusque-là, il n’était pas possible de mettre à jour son smartphone sans passer par iTunes et son ordinateur. Mais cet inconvénient n’a désormais plus lieu d’être, explique Cnet France, puisque cette fonctionnalité est disponible en natif sur iOS 5, une nouvelle relayé par Steve Jobs lui-même. Autrement dit, il est possible de mettre à jour son smartphone à travers un simple téléchargement Wi-Fi. Cette version apporte ainsi la possibilité de synchronisation sans fil pour les utilisateurs de Windows mais également quelques corrections de bug et un support plus large d’iCloud, le service de stockage en ligne d’Apple. Autre avantage majeur, grâce à la mise-à-jour, on ne télécharge que les modifications nécessaires, ce qui allège grandement la taille des fichiers de mise-à-jour qui ne pèsent plus que 133 mégaoctets contre 768 pour la version complète, note Cnet France.

Since you’re probably not in the running to become the Thirteenth Doctor (or any future incarnation), Doctor Who Time Vortex 360 is as close as you’ll get to piloting the TARDIS.The 360-degree mobile game lets fans navigate the Gallifreyan ship through the depths of the space-time vortex.Visit the BBC Taster site using a smartphone or tablet to get started; or try playing on a PC, but beware that unless you have impeccable hand-eye coordination, you won’t last long.Maneuver your device (or mouse) any which way to shift the screen up, down, forwards, and backward. Just watch out for those pesky meteorites.“The beauty of this game is that you can use your mobile phone to fly the TARDIS wherever you are,” Jo Pearce, creative director for BBC Digital Drama, said in a statement.“We’ve seen a lot of innovation recently in the 360 and virtual reality space, but the majority has focused on ‘experimental’ video-based experiences,” she continued. “This game, however, brings together the worlds of casual, arcade-style gaming and 360/VR to create a fun Doctor Who experience that people can easily pick up and play, wherever they are.”Of course, bending this way and that to fly through gaps in barriers during the daily train commute could become hazardous.The endless runner, however, is definitely worth a go. It gets more difficult the longer you play, flying through the iconic vortex from the show’s opening credits.Please remember to turn off the sound or plug in some headphones, though: Not everyone wants to listen to the infamous theme tune on repeat.“Digital innovation is at the very heart of Doctor Who,” Pearce said. “This 360-degree game allows people to navigate the TARDIS through time and space like never before.”Designed as a mobile-first experience for the BBC by Goodboy Digital, Time Vortex 360 is available to play on BBC Taster for six months.

Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow You’ve heard by now that many automakers are giving up on selling small sedans in the US, with models like the Ford Focus and Dodge Dart gone from this market as customers gravitate toward crossovers. But Toyota isn’t ready to give up on the segment — far from it, in fact. For the Japanese automaker, which is launching an all-new Corolla at dealers this month, less competition just means there’s opportunity to grow.”I’m OK with taking 100 percent market share of a 5.3-million unit segment,” Ed Laukes, group vice president of Toyota Division Marketing, told journalists Monday at a media drive event for the 2020 Corolla in Savannah, Georgia. “We’re staying bullish on sedans and small cars.”That’s partly, of course, because Toyota’s small sedans are already hugely successful. Taken together, Laukes said, the Corolla sedan and the midsize Camry would have been America’s ninth-largest automaker in 2018, with a combined 624,000 sales here.The Corolla has also traditionally been an important gateway to get customers into the Toyota lineup. Laukes said that for 24 percent of Corolla buyers, it’s their first new-car purchase. And those owners tend to be loyal, wth 65 percent going on to buy another Toyota.”Historically, Corolla owners have considered a Camry or a RAV4 as their next car,” Laukes said. “Getting younger customers into Corolla is a priority for our company.”The 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan was revealed in November 2018 and goes on sale this month. The standard model will offer both 1.8- and 2.0-liter gasoline engines, and for the first time in the US, there will also be a Corolla Hybrid, which is rated for an impressive 52 miles per gallon combined.
