(BOSTON) Aaron Hernandez hinted about suicide weeks before he was found hanging by a bedsheet in prison last week, according to a jailhouse friend who once sought to share a cell with the former NFL star. Lawrence Army Jr., an attorney for inmate Kyle Kennedy, said Wednesday that Hernandez wrote in a letter to his client: I think I'm going to hang it up. The 22-year-old, who is serving an armed robbery sentence, didn't take the comments seriously at the time, his lawyer said. The remark came sometime in March, during Hernandez's trial in the killings of two men in Boston in 2012. The former New England Patriots tight end was acquitted in the case five days before his suicide. I miss my friend, Kennedy said in a statement provided by Army. I would like to send my condolences to his fiancee, his mother and his daughter.

TMZ founder Harvey Levin opened up about his meetings with President Donald Trump, chiding the media for criticizing him while pretending to be objective reporters. Levin, a lawyer who went on to found the celebrity gossip and news website and television show, defended his hour-long meeting with Trump last month, saying they were discussing future opportunities and other projects (Levin featured Trump on a special called Objectified which aired on Fox News last year). “It is hilarious to me and kind of sad, that I was in the waiting room in the West Wing for a half hour before I walked in there. And probably saw a hundred people including reporters. So, nothing happened until a week later and then people were furious that I got in there and actually I was in Washington for something different and went in there, he said. Speaking at a conference of the National Association of Broadcasters' on Monday , Levin bemoaned the fact that he, Steve Harvey and Kanye West were all blasted for meeting with Trump.

In an earlier time, first dates were delightfully simple affairs: you'd tell a few stories, drink a few drinks and stare at the other person's face until you could assess whether they were hot enough to marry. That time is dead. And it's been replaced by something even more menacing: the "quirky date," which typically happens on the first date or at least in the first trimester of a relationships. Subjects who plan "quirky dates" often do so because they are desperate to convince potential partners that that they are fun! unique! and not your typical lawyer! Few of us want to go on quirky dates, no matter how much we profess otherwise. It's a crappy trend that needs to die, even though it shows no signs of going anywhere. Read more...

Thatd be like making a list for Santa and waking on Christmas morning to discover every last item you requested under the tree. Right. That said, as long as youre at about an 80% match to the job requirements, in most instances you should take a run at it, especially if the ones youre lacking are listed under the preferred section (as opposed to the required). Shouldnt: You Lack A Required License Or Certification Now, if youre at 80% (or even 90%) yet lack a required license or certification (e.g., real estate license, registered nurse designation, lawyer who has passed the state bar, etc.), you are more than likely wasting your time. In some fields, you just simply cannot be hired without certain credentials. So your choice is to either go get those credentials, or select another path.

KUALA LUMPUR: Three failed attempts to get an identity card has left a Sarawak-born student in a quandary over her desire to pursue higher education abroad. Riana Mae Christopher Bakar, 19, wants to be a lawyer and did not know where else to turn to except the media. Her plight is that, although her father is a local, her mother is a Filipina, by virtue of which, her birth certificate was stamped "Bukan Warganegara" or non-citizen. To add to the dilemma, her parents failed to register their marriage before she was born. "Since 12 years old, I had been trying to get an identity card but my three applications were not approved," she lamented. Riana is among probably thousands of children born "stateless" because one of their parents happened to be a foreigner. Meanwhile, Malaysia International Humanitarian Organisation president Dr Noorazman Mohd Samsuddin said the relevant parties should find a new approach to fix the problem.

The workers allege that their complaints about the actions of Judith Slater, the fired former comptroller, went unanswered for years. They say Brandi told them it was because Slater knew too much about former Fox Chairman Roger Ailes and top-rated host Bill O'Reilly, who have been ousted over the past year because of sexual-harassment accusations. A lawyer for Slater, Catherine Foti, said the actions against Slater are meritless and frivolous. She said all claims of racial discrimination against Ms. Slater are completely false. One plaintiff, on-air personality Kelly Wright, who's black, said he'd been effectively sidelined and asked to perform the role of a Jim Crow, an insulting slang term to refer to a black man, according to the lawsuit. Wright said O'Reilly, who's white, refused to show a piece Wright had prepared after racial protests in Ferguson, Missouri, because they showed blacks in too positive a light.

Not only that, their teachers told her that some of the strongest leaders on the project, the most creative thinkers, and the best workers were the students who struggled the most in regular classes. And in fact, as they were measuring, calculating angles, sawing, and designing their tree houses, those students were doing math that their teachers didnt realize they were capable of doing. “This was a real put your money where your mouth is moment for me,” Moran said. But rather than shut the project down she called the school board’s lawyer who said as long as she got the structures inspected and made sure the school had a clear plan for how they would be used the project could move forward. In her 12 years as superintendent Moran has consistently tried to fight the bureaucratic tendency to say “No” to anything risky or new. But she is also strategic about pushing her employees to connect with one another so that creative ideas can touch many people.

Bernie Madoff committed what is believed to be the largest financial fraud in United States history. And now, the latest episode of Exposed with Deborah Norville on Reelz, called Madoff With All The Money , shows an attorney talking about how she lost her retirement savings to Madoff. As Radar readers know, in March 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federal felonies, admitting he'd turned his investment planning business into a Ponzi scheme. The thousands of victims he had ripped off included celebrities and royalty. In an exclusive clip, Norville asks lawyer Helen Chaitman how she first heard of Madoff.

In the US, it’s the other way around. The Environmental Protection Agency has to prove that a chemical is dangerous before its use can be restricted. As a consequence, many toxic chemicals that are banned or restricted in Europe remain on the market in this country. “If we try to export our current regulatory regime to Europe, it could undermine science-based public health, safety, and environmental protections across the Atlantic, and most likely at home too.” said Weissman of Public Citizen . He painted a grim picture of TTIP’s potential impact: “This trade deal could expand the current broken system in the US and create even more opportunities for corporate interests to spread misinformation, weaken critical public protections, and challenge important health and safety standards, even at the state level and local level.” Regulatory lawyer James Goodwin, a senior policy analyst for the Center for Progressive Reform, was even blunter in assessing the leaked trade document.
