Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018|4:22 p.m.

LOS ANGELES– A California doctor who appeared in a truth TELEVISION dating program and an alleged female accomplice have actually been charged with drugging and sexually assaulting two females, and authorities stated Tuesday there might be many more victims.

Orthopedic surgeon Grant W. Robicheaux, 38, of Newport Beach and Cerissa Laura Riley, 31, of Brea were jailed Sept. 12 after being charged with rape by utilize of drugs, oral copulation by anesthesia or managed substance, and other criminal activities, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas told a press conference in Santa Ana.

Investigators were carefully going through “thousands and countless videos and images on Robicheaux’s phone, many also consisting of Riley,” Rackauckas stated.

Some videos show ladies who “seem extremely intoxicated beyond the capability to approval or resist, and they’re barely responsive to the defendant’s sexual advances. Based on this proof, we believe that there might be many unknown victims out there,” he said.

The district lawyer revealed reporters video of Robicheaux from a now-canceled Bravo TELEVISION program called “Online Dating Rituals of the American Male” in an episode entitled “Three’s A Crowd.”

“Our company believe the defendants used their good appearances and charm to lower the inhibitions of their potential victim,” Rackauckas said, releasing a variety of details about lots of areas and occasions related to Robicheaux and Riley.

The offenders, who were launched on $100,000 bail, might not be immediately grabbed comment.

The 2 ladies who were apparently attacked satisfied the pair during social encounters.

“Ladies who have actually encountered these 2 may have felt an incorrect sense of security due to the fact that both defendants are tidy cut, good-looking,” Rackauckas stated.

“We have the tendency to rely on doctors who take an oath to do no harm. The 2nd defendant, being a female, is essential. A female professing to be his girlfriend clearly played a significant function in deactivating the victims, making them feel comfy and safe,” he said.

Inning accordance with prosecutors, Robicheaux and Riley satisfied a 32-year-old female at a Newport Beach restaurant on April 10, 2016, invited her to a celebration and after that accompanied her to Robicheaux’s home when she was intoxicated.

The set supposedly offered the victim multiple drugs then sexually assaulted her while she was incapable of withstanding. The lady called authorities the next day, and a forensic test found multiple controlled substances.

On Oct. 2, 2016, the accuseds presumably drank alcohol with another woman at a Newport Beach bar until she was unconscious, brought her to Robicheaux’s house and sexually assaulted her. The district attorney’s office said the victim awakened and shrieked for aid up until a neighbor called police, who began an investigation.

Other charges versus the 2 allege big quantities of controlled substances were discovered in Robicheaux’s residence in January 2018. Robicheaux is likewise accused of possessing 2 unlawful, unregistered assault rifles, four other guns and a number of large-capacity magazines.

The district attorney said occasions and places the pair might have taken a trip to because 2015 include the Burning Guy festival in Nevada, the Dirtybird Campout celebration in Silverado, California, the Splash Home festival in Palm Springs, and landmarks near Page, Arizona.

Robicheaux was an undergraduate at Louisiana State University then finished from its medical school in 2007, Rackauckas stated. He then did postgraduate work at New york city University Healthcare Facility for Joint Diseases in New York City and did an orthopedic surgery residency at University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, California. He was accredited to practice medicine in California on Might 30, 2009.

A message left at Robicheaux’s office wasn’t immediately returned Tuesday, and a home number listed for him did not have a voicemail. Riley’s number was unlisted, and she was otherwise not able to be reached.

The Bravo truth program aired for one season, is not in production and there are no plans to bring it back, a spokesperson for NBC Universal said in an email.

'' Video game of Thrones,' '' ' Mrs. Maisel ' triumph at Emmys


Jordan Strauss/ AP Rachel Brosnahan winner of the award for exceptional lead starlet in a funny series for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” postures in journalism room at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Released Monday, Sept. 17, 2018|10:15 p.m.

Updated 19 hours, 7 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES– Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” ended up being the first streaming series to win leading Emmy funny honors and HBO’s “Video game of Thrones” recaptured the very best drama series award Monday at an event that mostly slighted its most ethnically diverse field of nominees ever.

With the exception of “Saturday Night Live,” broadcast shows were shut out of the leading awards as 21st-century platforms continued to eclipse conventional network fare like “This Is Us.”

HBO, which had ceded its top-dog status in total elections for the very first time in 17 years in July (108, to Netflix’s 112), wound up in a tie for wins with the streaming service at 23 each.

” The Magnificent Mrs. Maisel,” a freshman comedy about a dissatisfied 1950s homemaker freed by stand-up comedy, earned finest actress honors for star Rachel Brosnahan.

Her castmate Alex Borstein earned the supporting starlet trophy and the series creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino (” Gilmore Girls”), caught composing and directing awards.

Claire Foy of “The Crown” and Matthew Rhys of “The Americans” won leading drama acting Emmys, their first trophies for the roles and last chance to declare them, with Foy’s role as Queen Elizabeth II going to another actress and Rhys’ show wrapped.

The field bested by Foy consisted of last year’s winner Elisabeth Moss for “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Sandra Oh of “Killing Eve,” who would have been the very first actor of Asian descent to obtain a leading drama award.

” This wasn’t supposed to occur,” said a startled Foy. She played the young British queen who, as the series continues, will be shown advancing in years.

” Game of Thrones,” which remained in 2015’s Emmys because of scheduling, won its 3rd best drama prize regardless of competitors from protecting champ “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

” Thank you for letting us look after your individuals,” “Video game of Thrones” producer D.B. Weiss stated to George R.R. Martin, whose books and their characters sustain the drama.

In an event that started congratulating TELEVISION academy voters for the most historically diverse field of candidates yet, the early awards all went entirely to whites.

An African-American sweep of visitor series actor awards at the recent creative arts Emmys suggested big changes ahead for the awards, which only recently have actually given considerable honors to performers and creators of color.

But there was dissatisfaction for “Atlanta,” which had actually declared acting and directing trophies last year for its star and creator Donald Glover and seemed poised for more with 16 nominations.

Instead of become the very first black-led funny in 33 years to be called the best (considering that “The Cosby Show” in 1985), “Atlanta” was locked out Monday (it won 2 awards, including guest actor for Katt Williams, recently).

The showing by “Mrs. Maisel” extended the long winning streak of shows that focus on white lives, consisting of “Modern Household” and “Pals,” with ethnic minorities rarely provided screen time.

” Let’s get it trending: #EmmysSoWhite,” speaker James Corden joked at the ceremony’s midway point.

Then Regina King broke the string, with a finest starlet win in a restricted series or motion picture for “Seven Seconds,” which tracks the fallout from a white law enforcement officer’s traffic mishap involving a black teen.

” I seem like a lot of times we are so divided as a country that things are constantly black and white. I’m guilty of that a great deal of times. I believe that most likely played into my assumption the opportunities of me winning was so little,” King stated backstage.

Darren Criss, who is of Filipino descent, won the lead acting award for the miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” which won best restricted series. Black actress Thandie Newton won best supporting drama starlet for “Westworld.”

Peter Dinklage added a 3rd acting trophy to his collection for “Game of Thrones.”

Brosnahan used her acceptance speech to provide a shout-out to her comedy’s celebration of women power.

” It has to do with a woman who’s discovering her voice once again, and it’s one of the important things that’s taking place all over the country now,” she stated. She advised the audience to work out that power by ballot.

Expense Hader collected the best comedy actor award for “Barry,” a dark comedy about an employed killer who stumbles into a possible acting career.

Henry Winkler, aka “The Fonz,” won a supporting star award— his very first Emmy– for “Barry,” four years after gaining popularity for his role in “Delighted Days.”

” If you remain at the table long enough, the chips pertain to you. Tonight, I got to clear the table,” an ebullient Winkler stated, with an equally thrilled auditorium audience rising to provide him a standing ovation. To his grown children, he said: “You can go to sleep now, daddy won!”

The biggest award won by a broadcast network was “Saturday Night Live” for finest range sketch series.

The Emmys had a real-life significant moment when winning director Glenn Weiss, noting his mother had passed away two weeks ago, proposed to his girlfriend, Jan Svendsen.

” You question why I do not wish to call you my girlfriend? It’s due to the fact that I want to call you my better half,” Weiss stated. She stated yes, he put his mom’s ring on her finger and the crowd whooped and cheered.

John Oliver, in picking up the prize for best range talk show award for “Recently Tonight,” thanked Weiss’ girlfriend for giving the right answer or, he joked, the whole event could have gone south.

The Emmys kicked off with a song, “We Solved It,” a self-mocking celebration to the variety of candidates sung by stars including Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson. The tune consisted of a reference of Oh’s possible victory: “There were none, now there’s one, so we’re done,” the comics sang.

Oh played along from her seat: “Thank you, however it’s an honor simply to be Asian,” stated the Korean-Canadian starlet.

” Saturday Night Live” developer Lorne Michaels, producing his second Emmy telecast in Thirty Years, was tasked with turning viewership around after the 2017 show’s audience of 11.4 million directly prevented the embarrassment of setting a brand-new low.

The ceremony plainly bore his stamp, with Michael Che and Colin Jost as hosts and familiar “SNL” deals with, including Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin, as speakers and candidates. The long-running NBC sketch show, currently the leading Emmy winner ever with 71, won again for best variety sketch series.

The pressure was on Michaels because NBC and other broadcasters are progressively reliant on awards and other live occasions to draw audiences sidetracked by online alternatives.

The networks, which air the Emmy telecast on a turning basis, are so eager for the advertisement dollars it produces and its advertising value for fall reveals that they sustain online competitors sharing– and controling– the stage.

Do You Dread Conflict? It Doesn'' t Had to be that Method

Conflict can be bad for your health. It can strain your endocrine, immune, and cardiovascular systems. For many individuals, dispute is, at best, an undesirable requirement. But it doesn’t need to be that way. Dispute can be an opportunity for open communication and problem resolving.

” The quality of our conflict affects personal and expert relationships. Favorable dispute is connected with ingenious, efficient decisions,” stated Jennifer Guthrie, associate teacher of communication studies. “In general, people have the tendency to see dispute positively when they feel heard and comprehended even when they disagree.”

Guthrie presented a dispute resolution workshop at the MGM Resorts International Women’s Management Conference Aug. 27 and 28. At the start, she started the ball rolling by asking people exactly what they thought about when they heard the word “conflict.”

” Struggle.”

” Uneasy”

Then somebody said, “Growth.”

” Ohhh, let’s get back to that one,” Guthrie said.

Why were you shocked when somebody in the audience responded “growth”?

I have actually done that activity numerous times in the community or classroom, and the majority of people yell out negative words. Every as soon as in a while, I’ll hear favorable words. When I hear the word ‘development’ or ‘chance,’ it’s uncommon. We only tend to think about conflict in terms of its negative elements. And conflict can be enormously positive in regards to expressing your requirements for individual growth or relational growth.

Why should we discover favorable dispute resolution skills?

We tend to believe individuals are mind readers, however we also improperly think individuals’s motives or objectives. If I am upset, I might stew about it, however the other person doesn’t know I’m irritated. When we take part in the dispute, we are allowing everyone to see someone else’s view and find out about each other more and interact much better.

Exactly what are some suggestions to start unpacking the concerns?

Wonder. Explore and ask, exactly what is the issue? Be profoundly open to the other. Speak in ways that make others want to listen and listen in manner ins which make others wish to speak. Test concepts– not people. Another action is for both parties to take obligation for their functions in the conflict. Recognize both parties can undoubtedly be right/wrong.

What counts as healthy and unhealthy dispute?.

It’s so difficult to define this. To me, whenever somebody feel threatened or a person cannot state or do exactly what they desire or cannot express needs or have them heard in a manner, its not a bad idea to look for a 3rd party. Particularly in the office, if somebody abusing you, or using violent language, it’s not you to relocate to interest to figure out exactly what is the problem– there’s a line. You can hold your very own opinion while being open to others. Nevertheless, the tips are not asking you endure intolerance or abusive behavior.

Any tips to prevent when attempting to fix a dispute?

Defensiveness. Are you listening simply to safeguard? Know it’s alright to be incorrect; move to curiosity. Rather of reacting to a positive complaint with another problem or a protective statement, have the frame of mind of “That’s interesting. Tell me more.” Are you stonewalling? If you are, then take a break and return. If you’re upset, self-soothe and speak up calmly.

Does technology intensify conflict?

Usually, individuals may just think all conflict on innovation is unfavorable. There is some research out there that recommends for individuals who have an avoidance character, technology gives them time to consider their responses. For some folks, it’s easier to misinterpret e-mail with a crankier tone than planned.

What should you do to prevent a tech conflict?

Read back the text or email you’re about to send out in the angriest tone possible. Does it sound like how you usually sound face to face? Soften up the condition a bit. However this also depends upon who you are working with. Do you deal with somebody generally via e-mail, or do you deal with them in person? It’s wise to be cognizant of your tone.

Suit filed versus gas company after Massachusetts blasts

Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018|4:24 p.m.

BOSTON — Lawyers submitted a class action lawsuit Tuesday on behalf of people who were forced out of their houses for days when lots of gas surges and fires ripped through 3 Massachusetts towns.

The lawsuit is the very first of exactly what’s likely to be several filed against Columbia Gas and its moms and dad business over Thursday’s surges, which eliminated a single person and hurt more than two dozen in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover.

It accuses the utility companies of carelessness and seeks settlement for citizens of who had to leave however didn’t suffer injuries or damage to their houses.

Frank Petosa, among the lawyers who brought the case, said although families were allowed to return to their homes on Sunday, they still do not have gas or warm water and must live in worry that the explosions might take place again.

“The federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has actually reported that the pressure in the Columbia Gas system ought to have been around 0.5 pounds per square inch (PSI), but readings in the area reached at least 6 PSI– twelve times higher than the system was meant to hold,” the letter said.

The pressure spike signed up in a Columbia Gas control room in Ohio, the senators said in the letter, which requests a reply by Wednesday.

“We compose to request that you offer us with information in order to help the American individuals comprehend why this terrible disaster happened, whether the business was sufficiently prepared to respond to an incident of this magnitude, and how we can prevent any comparable disaster in the future,” the senators composed.

The surges are under investigation by the National Transportation Security Board. Chairman Robert Sumwalt has stated the investigation is partially focused on pressure sensors that were connected to a gas line that was being taken out of service soon before the blasts.

On Tuesday, Columbia Gas President Stephen Bryant announced that the energy is donating $10 million to an emergency relief fund for people affected by the emergency situation.

The Greater Lawrence Disaster Relief Fundwill help locals of the 3 communities with food, housing and other short-term requirements as they recover, Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said.

Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera, who has been extremely vital of Columbia Gas, said the energy is “living up to their corporate responsibility” with the donation.

Likewise Tuesday, Moody’s Investor’s Service stated the explosions and fires are most likely to harm the finances of Columbia Gas and its moms and dad business.

The Wall Street credit score company stated the catastrophe was “credit unfavorable” for Columbia and NiSource Inc., and may trigger “the deterioration of each business’s monetary position.”

U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, a member of your house Subcommittee on National Security, is requiring a congressional hearing into gas pipeline safety nationwide, indicating the gas surges in Massachusetts and in western Pennsylvania.

An approximated 650 pipeline events in 2015 caused 20 casualties and 35 injuries, according to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, the Massachusetts Democrat stated. This year pipeline occurrences have actually caused at least 3 deaths and 33 injuries.

Lynch said the vulnerability of citizens living near pipelines is much more worrisome provided the aging state of pipeline infrastructure.

UNLV Study Checks Out Possible Life on the Moons of Rogue Planets

It seems like the stuff of George Lucas’ universe, but it might be real. There may be life on the moons of rogue worlds– singular worlds that have been ejected from their host star and which wander through the galaxy.

A few observations and some prevailing theories about planet development and life influenced UNLV astrophysicist Jason Steffen and his undergraduate trainee Ian Rabago to think about this possibility. The results of their study will appear in the Regular monthly Notifications of the Royal Astronomical Society.

When it comes to life in the planetary system, one place scientists are eager to check out is Jupiter’s moon Europa. The consistent gravitational interactions in between Europa, its sibling moons, and Jupiter keep the moon’s interior cozy warm– warm enough that its surrounding moon Io has actually active volcanoes powered by this result. Since Europa is made mainly of water instead of rock, that warmth indicates a big subsurface ocean. These oceans have actually been around for billions of years and will persist for billions more.

At the same time, scientists think that young planetary systems typically go unsteady, ejecting planets big and little from the system. Certainly, planet-planet scattering is a leading theory for the formation of hot Jupiters (Jupiter-like planets on extremely small orbits of just a couple of days). The hot Jupiters are planetary brother or sisters that stay behind following the world ejection, but their orbits are dramatically altered from where they started.

Linking these dots offer the potential for more tanks of life in the galaxy. As Steffen states “If these ejected worlds can keep their moon systems, you have the possibility of life-bearing worlds wandering through the galaxy without any host star supplying energy.”

Rather, the energy comes from tidal heating as the moons interiors are continuously warmed by friction while they are extended and bent by the world and the other moons.

Rabago and Steffen found that a big fraction of the moons in a system can survive the ejection process, an important component for belonging to live. “We even found that unique orbital setups will endure ejection,” stated Rabago. “Resonant setups, like exactly what we see with Io, Europa, and Ganymede around Jupiter, will endure more than half of the time.”

Thus, if the seeds for life existed prior to the world was ejected, the conditions for life will remain long later on.

Projects to detect rogue worlds reveal that they do exist, which they may number well into the billions. Discovering the moons orbiting these worlds is a difficulty with current telescopes, however understanding how frequently the moons will survive tells us a lot about what may be going on around these lonesome things and how life may be dispersed throughout the galaxy.
