Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli plead guilty to roles in ‘Varsity Blues’ scandal

first_imgKuzma/iStockBy KATE HODGSON, AARON KATERSKY and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(BOSTON) — Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty, via a Zoom video call, to a federal judge for their roles in the massive college admissions scam.The Full House actress and fashion designer appeared on two different screens as they entered pleas on conspiracy charges to Judge Nathaniel Gorton of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston.Loughlin and Giannulli had been accused of paying Rick Singer $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits. Neither girl had ever rowed competitively.“Giannulli emailed Singer a doctored photo of daughter Olivia Jade on a rowing machine to cast her as an experienced coxswain and made purported charitable payments, to facilitate his daughter’s fraudulent admission to USC,” according to U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen. “They conspired with Rick Singer and others to commit wire fraud.”The couple were slated to go to trial in the fall. Rosen said prosecutors would have used recorded telephone calls, documents, emails and witness testimony to prove their guilt.In pleading guilty, the couple dropped previous assertions that their payments were charitable and prosecutors had withheld exculpatory evidence.Prosecutors have charged 50 suspects, including parents and coaches, in the investigation that’s been dubbed “Varsity Blues.”Prosecutors have recommended that Loughlin serve two months and Giannulli serve five months, but the judge hasn’t yet decided. Each is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 21.Rosen noted that Loughlin was facing a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.There’s a provision in the plea deal to wait at least 90 days after the judge imposes sentences before they are sent to prison. The couple are the 23rd and 24th suspects to plead guilty to charges related to the case.Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy and served nearly two weeks in prison last year.The scandal took place between 2011 and 2018 and was spearheaded by Singer, who pleaded guilty and helped the FBI investigate the parents. He orchestrated a system where parents would pay bribes to coaches and college administrators to get their children into elite colleges.Singer, who was sentenced to three years of supervised release in exchange for his cooperation, also helped parents get stand-ins to take admissions tests for their children.The conspirators went through great lengths to cheat, using tactics such as lying about students’ athletic histories and creating phony documents that indicated students had learning disabilities.Those charged in the probe included nine coaches at elite schools, two SAT and ACT exam administrators, one exam proctor, a college administrator and 33 parents.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Students boycott Thai Deputy PM

first_imgA group of Thai students are boycotting a visit by Deputy Prime Minister Phongthep Thepkanjana to Oxford this week in protest against a controversial bill proposed by the Thai government.The Amnesty Bill is a heated piece of legislation that has provoked unrest, government debate, and street protests in Thailand for many months. The bill proposes to offer amnesty for acts of violent unrest carried out between 2004 and August of this year. This would apply to several disgraced political figures close to the current government, most notably the older brother of Yingluck Shinawatra, the current Prime Minister. Deputy Prime Minister Thepkanjana, who has supported the Amnesty Bill despite fierce public opposition in Thailand, is set to meet Thai scholarship recipients at an informal lunch meeting on Saturday, 30 November. However, a group of Thai students led by Thaya Uthayophas and Duangnapa Kovanich have raised objections to the terms of the Deputy Prime Minister’s visit. In an open letter to Thepkanja, they strongly condemned his government’s policies and declined his invitation to take part in the event. “Contrary to the government’s tactics, we believe that a true democracy is not the same as  majoritarianism, that the voice of the minority, political decency, and the rule of law must be upheld,” the letter reads. “Therefore, we, the Thai students at Oxford University who oppose the Amnesty Bill, do not wish to have any involvement with your coming visit to Oxford.”Thaya Uthayophas, a third year PPEist visiting Pembroke from Brown University, is one of the leading signatures of the open letter to Thepkanjana. He is optimistic about the political dialogue created by the protest in Oxford and elsewhere: “We believe our letter has been well received by the majority of Thai students at the University of Oxford and also some other members of the Thai community in Oxford and the UK,” Uthayophas told Cherwell.“We hope that our boycott will prompt Thai students, both in Thailand and overseas, to be inspired to voice their opinions and engage in the greater political dialogue of the country.”Thai students supporting the boycott have chosen not to protest the Deputy Prime Minister’s visitfor the sake of the Oxford Thai Society, which has no official political affiliations and does not represent Uthayophas and Kovanich’s group.A first year MBA student at St Hugh’s expressed mixed opinions the visit, commenting, “I  personally welcome the man because I heard, from a reliable source, that he was fair and actually not a corrupt politician.“But we cannot welcome the Deputy PM who tries to pass that Amnesty Bill that would destroy the rule of law in our country.”Uthayophas expressed his disappointment that the Thai Office of Educational Affairs, which organised the Oxford lunch, did not specify that the Deputy Prime Minister would be attending.“We believe that their omission, given the current political situation in Thailand, has led some students to make uninformed decisions,” he said. Deputy Prime Minister Thepkanjana has not yet responded to the Oxford students’ open letter, nor was he available for comment.last_img read more

Education Redesign Lab launches ‘By All Means’

first_imgThe Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) announced the selection of six cities for a new multiyear initiative – By All Means: Redesigning Education to Restore Opportunity – aimed at developing comprehensive child well-being and education systems that help eliminate the link between children’s socioeconomic status and achievement. By All Means will be operated by HGSE’s Education Redesign Lab. Participating cities in the initiative are Oakland, California; Louisville, Kentucky; Providence, Rhode Island; and Salem, Somerville, and Newton, Massachusetts.“While our recent efforts at education reform have yielded some great successes in certain places, overall, we have failed to achieve equity, we have failed to eliminate persistent achievement and success gaps,” said Professor Paul Reville, founding director of the Education Redesign Lab and former Massachusetts secretary of education. “Schools alone, as currently conceived, can’t do the job of educating all children for success. We can do better. By All Means will help light the way.“Education reformers across the country set out decades ago to eliminate the correlation between zip code and educational success,” Reville continued.  “We’ve failed at that so far. These courageous mayors and superintendents are now re-embracing the challenge and are willing to rethink their child well-being and education systems to achieve the goal of equity.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

Online platform Onward promotes student engagement

first_imgIn their campaign platform, student body president and vice president Bryan Ricketts and Nidia Ruelas introduced the idea for Onward, an online forum for students to submit and vote on ideas for improving the University. The forum officially launched through student government’s website on Sept. 29.The site is accessible through studentgovernment.nd.edu and requires a Notre Dame login. Students can submit ideas as well as up-vote or down-vote ideas they like or dislike, and respond to other students’ posts. All posts begin with the tag “ideation stage,” but can gain “implementation” status when student government begins to look into moving forward with them.Constituent services director John Kill said the development of Onward is a gradual process, and the forum provides an opportunity for students to be involved in the discussion and implementation of new ideas.“It’s early still but as we continue to define how we want Onward to be used. … I think we will see an incredible increase in student body involvement … to make this University a better place,” he said.The staff in constituent services is getting in the habit of consistently publishing reports that contain the top ideas on Onward, Kill said.“We’re not quite sure how often we’ll publish reports, but we’re thinking every four to six weeks, we’ll have a report that will evaluate the top 10 ideas,” Kill said. “[Onward] keeps us accountable to the students, and it keeps the students accountable to their ideas.”Campus technology director Michael McRoskey, who was involved in the technological process of creating Onward, said the best comparison for it was an idea-sharing platform that shared layout similarities with the social media site Yik Yak.“We partnered with OIT to use this idea-share service, and people can sign in with their net IDs,” McRoskey said. “We wanted to give students the opportunity … to be empowered. This is kind of like removing the barrier, and you can post your ideas right from your dorm room [with] the most popular ideas being upvoted.”McRoskey is also in the process of launching student government’s new website in the upcoming weeks. He said the current website lacked engaging content and visuals.“We took the current website and totally refreshed it, so that it’s more dynamic and shows what’s happening on Onward. It’s very visual and mobile friendly,” McRoskey said.The website’s main purpose is to show students that student government is working for them, and to showcase newly implemented ideas and accomplishments, McRoskey said.“People can see what student government does because a lot of people don’t understand what student government does behind the scenes,” he said.McRoskey said Onward provides an interactive platform for students and their representatives to communicate and talk about student concerns and possible solutions. McRoskey said some popular topics feature on Onward are prices in The Huddle, the printing quota and various complaints with food services.“It empowers students to share their ideas and … sort of refine them,” McRoskey said. “It’s not just complaining because people comment on that idea … and work towards synthesizing a solution.”Tags: Onward, Student government, student government in focuslast_img read more

CUNA-backed improvements present in final CECL standard

first_imgThe Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) released its long-awaited final standard on credit losses Thursday, and it includes CUNA-backed improvements that make it more manageable for credit unions. CUNA will be closely analyzing the standard with its Accounting Advisory Committee in the coming weeks.“Based on our initial look at the final standard, it appears that the hard work of CUNA and our member credit unions helped bring about the final version of the standard that will make compliance much more manageable to credit unions,” said Elizabeth Eurgubian, CUNA’s deputy chief advocacy officer. “While we continue to disagree with FASB’s decision to apply the new standard to credit unions, we recognize that the final standard reflects input provided to the FASB Board and staff by CUNA and the credit union industry.”Referred to as the current expected credit loss (CECL) standard, it uses an “expected loss” measurement for the recognition of credit losses, which replaces the various existing impairment models in U.S. generally accepted accounting principles that generally use an “incurred loss” approach.Two CUNA members are part of FASB’s CECL transition resource group. Susan Hannigan, senior vice president/chief financial officer at Jeanne D’Arc CU, Lowell, Mass., and Doug Wright, chief financial officer at Mission FCU, San Diego, helped bring the credit union perspective to FASB over the last few months. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
