Here’s a look at the legal road ahead for Trump —-

Atlanta prosecutors opened a criminal investigation into whether Trump attempted to overturn his election loss in Georgia, including a Jan. 2 phone call in which he urged the state’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to reverse Biden’s narrow victory.,Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., a Democrat, is in the midst of an 18-month criminal investigation focusing in part on hush-money payments paid to women on Trump’s behalf, and whether Trump or his businesses manipulated the value of assets — inflating them in some cases and minimizing them in others — to gain favorable loan terms and tax benefits.,Last month, Vance’s office sent subpoenas to local governments in the New York City suburbs seeking information about a sprawling Westchester estate Trump owns there, and 158 acres of land he donated to conservation land trust in 2016 to qualify for an income tax deduction.,New York Attorney General Letitia James’ civil investigation focuses on some of the same issues as Vance’s criminal probe, including possible property value manipulation and tax write-offs Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, claimed on millions of dollars in consulting fees it paid, including money that went to Trump’s daughter Ivanka.,Lawyers for Summer Zervos, a restaurateur who worked with Trump as a contestant on “The Apprentice,” asked New York’s high court last week to dismiss as moot Trump’s appeal that argued a sitting president can’t be sued in a state court. read more

That distinction now belongs to the Academy of Television Arts Sciences, which is facing calls to revoke the Emmy it awarded to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.,In November, the TV Academy presented Cuomo with the International Emmy Founders Award “in recognition of his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic and his masterful use of TV to inform and calm people around the world.”,In case the viewing public was confused about why a politician was receiving an Emmy award, the Academy showed a video of celebrity New Yorkers fawning over the governor’s ”New York tough” management of the pandemic.,It turns out that while stars were swooning over Cuomo’s TV shows, Washington was trying to investigate the appalling death toll in the state’s nursing homes.,The New York Post reported last week that Cuomo’s top aide, secretary to the governor Melissa DeRosa, told state Democratic leaders during a video conference call that the governor’s office had withheld the state’s nursing home data from lawmakers who requested it in August because President Trump had begun publicly attacking some governors over the issue, and then Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”

Presidential daughters Chelsea Clinton and Jenna Bush Hager are each buying ownership stakes in the Washington Spirit, the team announced.,In addition to Clinton, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Hager, the daughter of George W. and Laura Bush, the Spirit are also lined up to add former USWNT goalie Briana Scurry and groundbreaking Olympic gymnast Dominique Dawes to its ownership box.,From Today: “Chelsea (Clinton) and I see each other around, or we used to.,Celebrity ownerships the new trend in NWSL The Spirit adding Clinton, Hager, Dawes, Scurry and more would continue recent trend of celebrity ownership in the NWSL.,Naturally, Los Angeles' Angel City FC is the most star-studded of the group, with an ownership group that includes (deep breath) Natalie Portman, Serena Williams, Jennifer Garner, Lindsey Vonn, Uzo Aduba, P.K. Subban, Jessica Chastain, America Ferrera, Candace Parker, Billie Jean King, Eva Longoria and Lilly Singh among others, plus past USWNT stars like Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and Abby Wambach.

JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday acknowledged differences with U.S. President Joe Biden over Iranian and Palestinian issues, but said they enjoy a “very strong” working relationship.,The White House on Friday denied that Biden was snubbing Netanyahu by failing to include him so far in an early round of phone calls to foreign leaders since taking office on Jan. 20.,Netanyahu dismissed any notion that Biden was intentionally excluding him, telling Israel’s Channel 12 television channel: “He’ll call … We have had very strong friendly relations for nearly 40 years, dating from the time I came to Washington as an Israeli diplomatic representative and he was a young senator from Delaware.”,Netanyahu may find the alliance tested if Washington restores U.S. participation in the Iran nuclear deal, from which Trump withdrew, and opposes Israeli settlement building on occupied land where Palestinians seek statehood.,On Friday, the White House said Biden and Netanyahu would speak soon, but gave no date. read more

President Joe Biden has responded by including a provision in the massive pandemic relief bill that would more than double the minimum wage from the current $7.25 to $15 per hour.,The Senate’s parliamentarian may further complicate things with a ruling that the minimum wage measure can’t be included in the pandemic bill.,For now, the measure’s most progressive Senate backers aren’t openly pressuring Biden to step up his campaign for a higher minimum wage.,The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, the co-chair of the Poor People’s Campaign, said Biden has a “mandate” to ensure the minimum wage increases, noting that minority Americans were “the first to go back to jobs, first to get infected, first to get sick, first to die” during the pandemic.,Biden suggested in the same interview that he’s prepared to engage in a “separate negotiation” on raising the minimum wage, but White House press secretary Jen Psaki offered no further details on the future of the proposal if it is in fact cut from the final coronavirus aid bill.

Washington County residents celebrated installation in the snow last week, but how does a resident within the 7-mile radius of the first wireless offering of the Southeast Ohio Broadband Cooperative sign up for internet service?,“So we’re going to have a sign-up portal (online), and I know it makes zero sense to have a portal to sign up to get internet… We’re also going to be using the same phone number that we used for the speed test,” explained the cooperative’s founder David Brown.,Friday, Washington County Commissioner Jamie Booth noted the potential of the service to not only bring jobs, as outlined by Brown Thursday, but also increase property values in the county.,“That benefits the property tax revenues,” he pointed out to Washington County Treasurer Tammy Bates as her office worked through mailed payments for the first half of property and mobile home tax payments.,Last week’s installation was made possible in part by the investment of $50,000 by the Washington County Commissioners signing over federal CARES Act dollars.

A paper published in the journal Nature Communications, reveals a potential revolutionary drug combination that -- in animal studies and in world-first 3D models of the tumour -- is "spectacularly effective in eradicating the cancer cells," according to lead researcher and paediatric oncologist Associate Professor c from the Children's Cancer Institute and Sydney Children's Hospital.,These models have been used to show that DIPG can bypass the activity of DFMO by pumping polyamines into cancer, essentially allowing the tumour to continue growing despite treatment with DFMO.,They have now made the breakthrough discovery that treatment with a new developmental drug, AMXT 1501, potently blocks the transport of polyamines into the DIPG cancer cell.,Treatment with AMXT 1501 was found to re-sensitize the DIPG cells to DFMO leading to what Associate Professor Ziegler said, "was a spectacular response in animal models, with a significantly increased survival and minimal toxicity (side effects).",Associate Professor Ziegler said that clinical trials of the drug combination in DIPG are planned to begin this year in children in a global study led by the Children's Cancer Institute and the Kid's Cancer Centre at Sydney Children's Hospital.
