Pharma news - June 18, 2018 - 10:51am

A Texas sheriff’s deputy has been accused of sexually assaulting an undocumented immigrant’s child, and blackmailing the mother with potential deportation to keep her quiet about the attacks. Jose Nunez, 47, is being held on charges of “super aggravated sexual assault” after the mother sought help at a fire department for her 4-year-old child, who had reportedly been crying out in pain. “The details of the case are quite frankly heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time,” Javier Salazar, the Bexar County Sheriff, said during a press conference announcing the charges and circumstances.

Audi boss arrested in diesel probe

Pharma news - June 18, 2018 - 10:23am

Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler was arrested Monday in connection with parent company Volkswagen's "dieselgate" emissions cheating scandal, with prosecutors saying they feared he might try to suppress evidence. The dramatic development comes a week after Munich prosecutors raided Stadler's home after charging him with fraud and falsifying documents that allowed diesel vehicles equipped with cheating software to be sold to European customers. Four police officers detained the Audi boss at his home at between 6 and 7 am, a spokesman for Munich prosecutors told AFP, saying that the arrest was justified as he is suspected of "seeking to influence witnesses or other suspects".

Toyota confirms production of 986bhp GR Super Sport

Pharma news - June 18, 2018 - 9:58am

Since the Toyota MR2 went out of production in 2007 there hasn't been much evidence of sportiness in the Japanese automaker's lineup beyond the somewhat underpowered GT86, but that's about to change in a big way as it's now been confirmed a production version of the 986 horsepower GR Super Sport is in the pipeline. At the moment we only have images of the concept first shown at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January of this year, but news of a production version was released by Toyota on the eve of the Les Mans 24 hour race. This isn't the first time Toyota has looked at building a production Le Mans racer, because in 1998 the company brought us the GT-One (TS020) Le Mans Prototype where a road-going concept was produced with a view towards building a handful of production models.

Homeland Security secretary gets shredded on Twitter after she lies about policy that separates families at border

Pharma news - June 18, 2018 - 9:12am

As the debate rages on about the Trump administration's horrific policy of separating undocumented parents from their children as they attempt to cross the border between the United States and Mexico, the fight between officials and lawmakers has spilled over onto social media. One tweet, in particular, from Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, has served as a flashpoint. She tweeted on Sunday that the DHS doesn't "have a policy of separating families at the border. Period."  We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period. — Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen (@SecNielsen) June 17, 2018 But images and videos across social media as well as a plethora of well-reported stories have offered substantial evidence to the contrary, relaying stories and even showing tent cities created for undocumented children separated from their families.  Here are photos of the tent city near El Paso that is housing immigrant children separated from their parents. Photos by @i_p_a_1 for the @TexasTribune. Read more here: https://t.co/2rqHNDpTLx pic.twitter.com/RUIuGbl4yl — Texas Tribune (@TexasTribune) June 16, 2018 Just visited the Brownsville Children's Facility. Trump Administration didn't let us talk to the kids and they even tried to stop me from recording outside the building. They are clearly sensitive about this trip. This place is packed with kids—over 100 taken from parents. pic.twitter.com/7RVP0ZgT8e — Chris Van Hollen (@ChrisVanHollen) June 18, 2018 What's more, journalists and lawmakers made note of previous comments Nielsen has made in defense of the same policy she tweeted doesn't exist. "Nielsen said the department has ... a policy that it will refer everyone caught crossing the border illegally for prosecution, even if they ... have small children. Any parents who are prosecuted ... will be separated from their children in the process." https://t.co/PiCVLVA2aF https://t.co/Nfs9a3oxxx — Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) June 17, 2018 Kirstjen Nielsen yesterday: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.” But in May 10, she defended the administration’s separation policy to NPR https://t.co/nLC5SY0DzB — Evan Siegfried (@evansiegfried) June 18, 2018 Nielsen didn't exactly help herself, either, on Monday morning by saying, "We will not apologize for doing out job." Lawmakers have jumped in, calling out Nielsen and her statement, labeling it a lie, and challenging both the Trump administration and Nielsen to address the growing crisis that is spiraling out of control.  This is a lie. Period. https://t.co/KUUQyyU2kF — Katherine Clark (@RepKClark) June 18, 2018 You are a stone cold liar. https://t.co/JXKb7ppwwt — Hakeem Jeffries (@RepJeffries) June 18, 2018 This statement is false. There are thousands of separated families that prove otherwise. My office is working to reunite 3 mothers who were separated from their kids at the border. Will highlight these stories at this week’s family separation hearing. #FamiliesBelongTogether https://t.co/iZbAxDdDzG — Nanette D. Barragán (@RepBarragan) June 18, 2018 .@SecNielsen This is a LIE! The Members you are speaking on are at the Detention facilities! We are on the grounds at the border taking with officials... Why don’t you STOP typing Tweets in D.C and come to Texas and see for your self. This situation of heartbreaking! https://t.co/2oa1mO22hp — Sheila Jackson Lee (@JacksonLeeTX18) June 18, 2018 The Trump Administration’s family separation policy tore 2,000 families apart in six weeks but they won’t stop lying about it. https://t.co/gw9RwUVjx5 — Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) June 18, 2018 Retract this statement, Madame Secretary.Yes, technically YOU are not at the border separating families YOURSELF. You are in charge of a policy that turns parents over to DOJ, resulting in the separation of children. You know this, and still - incredibly - sent out this tweet. https://t.co/CikreZ286K — Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) June 18, 2018 This is a lie. There is no law. There is no court mandate. This is a policy made solely by this administration, and you can stop it right now. And every second you don’t you are directly responsible for unimaginable amounts of misery. Period. https://t.co/nf0lF9VEoO — Ed Markey (@SenMarkey) June 18, 2018 While it's mostly been Democrats reacting to Nielsen's statement, some Republicans, including former First Lady Laura Bush, have publicly opposed the Trump administration's policy.  As of Monday morning, though, Trump was back on Twitter himself and, though he didn't address Nielsen's comments directly, he did address the issue but in the most horrendous way, continuing to blame Democrats. Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country. Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border. It is historic, with some countries the most dangerous places in the world. Not going to happen in the U.S. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2018 It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime. Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration. Change the laws! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2018 We truly live in the worst, darkest timeline. UPDATE: June 18, 2018, 10:58 a.m. EDT Updated to include new comments from Sec. Nielsen
