The Detroit News Published 4:04 p.m. UTC Jul 6, 2018 Detroit — The widow of United Auto Workers Vice President General Holiefield stole $190,000 from honest taxpayers to bankroll a lavish lifestyle and should spend more than two years in federal prison, prosecutors said Friday. Monica Morgan-Holiefield, 55, of Harrison Township, benefited "handsomely" from illegal payments to her late husband from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and used shell companies to hide the income and criminal activity, according to the government. The payments are central to an ongoing federal investigation that has led to criminal charges against seven people, caused upheaval at the top ranks of the auto industry and raised questions about the sanctity of labor negotiations. In pushing for a 27-month prison sentence, prosecutors delivered a scathing counterpunch to her lawyer's request for leniency and labeled Morgan-Holiefield a jet-setting tax cheat and fraudster, a portrait … [Read more...] about Feds paint UAW widow as fraudulent tax cheat

ByGretchen Reynolds June 13, 2018 Exercise alone is probably not enough for us to achieve and maintain good health. We must also try to sit less, according to a fascinating new study of the separate physiological effects that exercise and light, almost-incidental activities, such as standing up, can have on our bodies. By now, we all know that regular exercise is good for us. The United States national exercise guidelines, which are based on a wealth of scientific evidence, recommend at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week in order to lengthen our life spans and reduce our risks of a variety of diseases. In practice, this recommendation translates into 30 minutes almost daily of exercise that should … [Read more...] about Exercise vs. Standing? You Probably Need to Do Both

The case, which dates back to 2008, consolidated dozens of lawsuits by hundreds of veterans and their families seeking to recover damages from the military contractor KBR Inc., but a trial court dismissed it in July 2017. It could be at a legal dead end unless the panel of judges, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., overturns the dismissal. The plaintiffs accuse KBR of negligence for exposing them to toxic emissions from open-air trash fires known as burn pits, which they say cause respiratory, neurological and other health problems. In tossing the case … [Read more...] about Veterans Go Back to Court Over Burn Pits. Do They Have a Chance?
Updated 6:34 am, Saturday, April 28, 2018 Now Playing: Honeycrisp and Golden Delicious apples hold their shape well and won't get too mushy after baking. Brown sugar lends deep molasses flavor to the topping. Media: Cooking Light YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — It's an apple that could upset the cart. Or at least disrupt it a bit. Washington growers are so excited about the Cosmic Crisp's potential, they already planted a half-million trees and plan to add another 5 million this year. Consumers will have to wait until fall of 2019 before these new apples hit the marketplace. But behind the scenes, there's a courtroom battle brewing between one of the state's major universities and a Seattle agricultural technology company over who has the right to sell the trees. But whatever happens, it's not dampening growers' enthusiasm for what they see as a game-changing variety of apple. "I'm excited to see how it will disrupt the apple market," said Mark Hanrahan, a Buena grower … [Read more...] about Apple controversy: Who can sell Cosmic Crisp trees?

Mr. Pharoah, 30, obliged, shedding his tank top and wetting his rippling chest down with a bottle of alkaline water. “Oh snap,” he said. “I am proud of my damn self.” Near the end of his time on “Saturday Night Live” (he was fired in 2016, a year before his contract ended), the busy rehearsal schedule and 3 a.m. pizzas with writers caught up with him. His weight ballooned to 215 pounds. After hiring the baby-faced Mr. Castaño and following a rigorous diet, Mr. … [Read more...] about The Actor and Comedian Jay Pharoah Channels ‘Sparta’ at the Gym
