Task force to investigate Ohio State band's 'sexualized culture'

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 02:50
By Kim Palmer CLEVELAND (Reuters) - An independent task force will look into culture and sex discrimination in the running of Ohio State University's famous marching band after its director was fired for failing to address alleged sexual harassment of its members, the university said on Friday. The university said band Director Jonathan Waters was dismissed on Thursday for failing to address the group's "sexualized culture," which a report said included a practice in underwear and rituals simulating sex acts. Waters and other staff, "knew or reasonably should have known about the culture but failed to eliminate the sexual harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects," said a 92-page report released this week after an internal investigation. The task force review, to be led by former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery, will be more far-reaching and will include nationally recognized experts, the university said.

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 02:13
By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Chinese graduate student at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles has been found dead in his off-campus apartment after being assaulted late at night on his way home, police and university officials said. The body of Xinran Ji, 24, an electrical engineering student who enrolled at USC in the fall of 2013, was discovered at about 7 a.m. local time Thursday morning, a few blocks away from where police say he had been attacked nearly six hours earlier. No arrests had been made as of Friday morning in the assault, which university officials said appeared to be an isolated incident. It came two years after two other USC graduate engineering students from China were shot to death as they sat in a parked car together in a neighborhood adjacent to the campus in what police said was a robbery attempt gone wrong.

Colorado deputies end dramatic crime spree captured on camera

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:56
By Daniel Wallis DENVER (Reuters) - Sheriff's deputies in Colorado ended a two-hour crime spree by a couple suspected of carjacking when a lone officer tackled a gun-toting man following a dramatic pursuit that was caught on camera. Authorities say Christopher David Sullivan, 37, and an underage girl fled on Wednesday after being stopped by a Jefferson County deputy for a traffic violation, triggering a manhunt around Lookout Mountain, about 12 miles west of Denver. "During the suspects' attempts to elude police they stole three vehicles, burglarized two homes, menaced 12 innocent bystanders and left at least six separate crime scenes in their wake," Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said on Thursday in a statement. Waving his rifle, he tries unsuccessfully to stop several vehicles on a nearby highway before being confronted at gunpoint by a Jefferson County motorcycle officer.

One Kuwaiti inmate to stay at Guantanamo, second goes home: panel

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:55
By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Kuwaiti man with links to al Qaeda will remain at the Guantanamo Bay prison, while a second is cleared for transfer home, a U.S. national security panel said on Friday. Faez Mohammed Ahmed al-Kandari, who has been held at the U.S. prison in Cuba without charge since 2002, is a security threat because he is susceptible to recruitment by extremists, the Periodic Review Board said. Al-Kandari "almost certainly retains an extremist mindset and had close ties with high-level al Qaeda leaders in the past," the review board said in a ruling posted on a Defense Department website. A Pentagon profile ahead of his board hearing in June said al-Kandari had served as an al Qaeda recruiter.
