Runkle said the document's "fill in the blank" style is similar to how USP Labs promoted its products. Willson, a USP Labs consultant, wrote online articles "advocating the use of steroids" and minimizing their risks, according to Runkle. The articles, published between 2000 and 2006, claimed among other things that "synthetic substances are better than natural extracts," the government's filing says. The prosecutor said Geissler first contacted Willson because he was a "fan" of his writings. Willson used a fake name while posing as a scientific adviser for USP Labs, Runkle said. "The articles tend to show that Willson, USP Labs' sole scientific adviser, was not a 'top sports scientist' as described to retailers and consumers in advertisements, but rather was an illegal anabolic steroid enthusiast with frightening fringe views about supplement safety," Runkle wrote. Intimidation Runkle said in his February filings that some defendants tried to silence potential witnesses.

You probably think you know who Donald Trump is. Most Americans do. For decades, he’s been in the public eye—first as a flamboyant real estate developer, then a reality TV star, then a political performer—and has been branding himself upon the public imagination throughout that entire time. Who is Donald Trump? Ask Americans and many of them will describe a self-made billionaire, a business tycoon of unfathomable success. In research recently published in Political Behavior, we found that voters are not simply uninformed about President Trump’s biographical background, but misinformed—and that misinformation has serious political consequences.Story Continued Below Large swaths of the public believe the Trump myth. Across three surveys of eligible voters from 2016 to 2018, we found that as many as half of all Americans do not know that he was born into a very wealthy family. And while Americans are divided along party lines in their assessment of … [Read more...] about Many Voters Think Trump’s a Self-Made Man. What Happens When You Tell Them Otherwise?
THE world's richest man Jeff Bezos faces the most expensive divorce in history as he splits from his novelist wife MacKenzie after 25 years of marriage.

By all accounts, the Whitakers were a perfect family living in a community outside of Houston, Texas. That was all shattered on Dec. 10, 2003, when the family of four was gunned down as they entered their home. Tricia Whitaker, a retired teacher, and her 19-year-old son, Kevin, died from their injuries. The dad, Kent, survived as did their son, Bart. "I think, "Oh my God, he shot all four of us,'" Kent Whitaker told "48 Hours" correspondent Peter Van Sant. The investigation into the shooting revealed an intricate plot and a ruthless conspiracy to eliminate three of the four Whitaker family members. The mastermind of the plot? Bart, who hated his family and wanted their money. In 2007 he was tried and convicted of hiring the hit man to kill his family and hurt him, too, to cover up the crime. He was given the death penalty. This is where most cases end; not this one. Since his son was convicted, and to the disbelief of some, Kent Whitaker has fought to save Bart from being executed. … [Read more...] about Texas man targeted by a hitman fights for the life of the person who ordered the murder – his son
