The six indictments of disgraced doctor Larry Nassar returned last week by a Walker County grand jury accuse him of assaulting gymnasts over a period of almost 20 years at the Karolyi Ranch, according to court records provided Tuesday.

.

The indictments alleging sexual assault of a child were issued Friday by a grand jury in Huntsville, a few miles north of the Sam Houston National Forest ranch owned by longtime coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi, as the latest development in the USA Gymnastics sexual abuse scandal.

Former Elite Gymnast Kamerin Moore Learns To Take Back Her Accomplishments From An Abusive Coach

Kamerin Moore, former elite gymnast and Larry Nassar survivor, posted a video to Youtube this week discussing her struggles with body image after a lifetime spent as a gymnast. Ive had poor body image, I mean, as long as I can remember, she says close to the start. Like since I hit puberty.

*
Its not the first video that Moore has posted. She first came forward as a victim of Nassars abuse last year in another Youtube video, and also talked about her abuse during her victim impact statement during Nassars sentencing in Michigans Ingham County in January. (Moores younger brother, Jacob, is so far the only male Nassar victim to come forward.)

*

Moore says that she hit puberty at 14, when she underwent shoulder surgery for an injury. That was the first time in her life that she was out of the gym for an extended period of time, which enabled her body to start developing as it naturally would have had the process not been delayed by her arduous training. I wasnt big by any means, she explains. I just got bigger.

*

That, for some reason, wasnt acceptable according to my coach, Moore continued. Moore doesnt name her coach in video, but throughout her gymnastics career she was coached by John Geddert, who owned Twistars USA in Michigan. He was close with Nassar and the former doctor used to treat gymnasts in the backroom of the gym on a regular basis. Many Geddert gymnastsincluding world and Olympic champion Jordyn Wieberwere sexually abused by Nassar. Many former Twistars gymnasts have accused Geddert of being emotionally abusive towards them during their competitive gymnastics careers.

*

Moore talks about how Geddert routinely weighed and measured her, disparaging her if she weighed too much and praising her if she lost weight, which she managed to do only through unhealthy means. Moores story, in this respect, sounds like the stories of many other gymnasts who were shamed and pressured by coaches to lose weight. Its a story that has been told at least since Joan Ryans 1995 book Little Girls in Pretty Boxes.

Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics cover story: ‘Can we just say i am sick?’

Tim Evans and Marisa Kwiatkowski,

IndyStar Published 1:01 a.m. ET May 24, 2018

USA Gymnastics officials agreed to provide what Larry Nassar’s attorney called “false excuses” for his absence from major gymnastics events in 2015, rather than disclose to parents and gymnasts that Nassar was under investigation for child sexual abuse.

Emails obtained by IndyStar reveal that on two separate occasions, Nassar and a USA Gymnastics attorney negotiated cover stories first that Nassar was sick and later that he was focusing on his private practice to explain why the longtime team physician was not attending two major events in the run-up to the 2016 Olympics.

In one of the emails, Indianapolis attorney Scott D. Himsel told Nassar his medical techniques were under investigation, and “it is in everyone’s best interest” that Nassar not attend a gymnastics event that weekend.

Himsel said USA Gymnastics would tell people Nassar was not attending for “personal reasons.”

Nassar replied: “Can we just say that i am sick? That would make more sense to everyone. Would that be ok?”

Himsel agreed to have USA Gymnastics use that story.

Out of Balance: An IndyStar investigation into USA Gymnastics

In later emails part of more than 900 pages of documents reviewed by IndyStar Nassar assured Himsel: “I stayed with the story of that I am nauseated, not feeling well and staying home.”

Family Separation Is Trump’s Immigration Policy.
Here’s Why He Won’t Own It

June 20, 20185:00 AM ET

Domenico Montanaro – 2015

NPR

https://tinyurl.com/y6u2wfo6

.

.

President Trump and administration officials are walking a fine line on family separation at the border.

*

They argue they don’t like the policy, but that their hands are tied and instead are pointing fingers at Congress to “fix” it.

*

There may be good reason for that the policy (and it is a Trump administration policy, despite the Homeland Security secretary’s claims to the contrary) is unpopular.

*

The president on Tuesday called on Congress to come up with a “third option”: for the legal authority to detain and promptly remove families together as a unit. This is similar to a practice used during the Obama administration, when some families were detained together. That, too, was criticized, but it is emerging now as a preferred alternative.

*

Some immigrants under Presidents Obama and George W. Bush were released while they awaited adjudication, but that approach is one Trump and conservative critics chafe at, calling it “catch and release.” Trump White House officials say that’s not an option this president wants to consider since their stated policy is “zero tolerance” for people who cross the border illegally.

*

A hard line on immigration was a fundamental ideological underpinning of Trump’s candidacy. Now, the country is seeing the practical implementation of that ideology, especially after a year in which little got done legislatively on immigration. Trump, though, appears to be looking for a way out of the bad optics and bad politics without looking like he’s compromising his principles.

*

Putting Republicans in a jam

*

The president huddled with House Republicans Tuesday afternoon. They’re considering several bills, but the strings attached, as always, will be what determines if they pass. Hard-liners and the Trump administration want to see what they can get on the president’s other immigration priorities. But there’s only so much moderates and Democrats are willing to give on this.

*

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants a narrow bill that deals strictly with family separation.

*

“In order to fix this problem you can’t fix all the problems,” he told reporters. “We’ve wrestled with this issue for a decade.”

*

The reality is, you don’t need to look very far to see which way the wind is blowing on this issue. Not only is the president declining to take full ownership of the policy, but Democrats see no political reason to capitulate, and that leaves moderate Republicans feeling the most heat. Congressional Republicans, especially those in vulnerable House districts, are the ones who most want this issue off the table quickly.

*

That’s why Ohio Rep. Steve Stivers, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee, came out against the policy. He encouraged the Trump administration to “stop needlessly separating children from their parents,” he said in a statement on his Facebook page. “If the policy is not changed, I will support other means to stop unnecessary separation of children from their parents.”

*

(If you want to see how divided people are on this, just read the comments on Stivers’ Facebook post.)

Stivers Statement on Updated Immigration Executive Order

.

Washington, March 6, 2017 | 0 comments

.

My first priority is the safety of the United States, and I am glad this order seeks to better coordinate with agencies to determine if we are receiving enough information from other countries to effectively vet those who are attempting to come into the United States. I continue to support a more permanent solution to our visa vetting process that also ensures we differentiate between our partners in the region and radical Islamic terrorists.”

The following statement can be attributed to Congressman Steve Stivers (R-OH) regarding the updated immigration executive order:

AMY GOODMAN: As outrage is mounting over the Trump administrations practice of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of the crackdown against immigrants and asylum seekers, the Associate Press reporting nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents since April 19th, The New York Times reporting some parents have been deported without their children and with no information about how the family will be reunited, were going to look now at Southwest Key, the nonprofit that operates 27 facilities in California, Arizona and Texas, including the Brownsville facility that holds 1,500 children, that Senator Merkley was previously denied entry to.

.

Were going to Tucson, Arizona, to speak with a whistleblower, a youth care worker who quit the Tucson detention center for unaccompanied minors, run by the nonprofit Southwest Key Programs, which also runs the Brownsville facility and the proposed baby jail in Houston, 27 facilities in all. Antar Davidson quit after, he says, Southwest Key forced him to tell children who were separated from their mother and from their siblings not to hug.

Antar Davidson, welcome to Democracy Now! Can you talk about why you quit your job last week?

.

ANTAR DAVIDSON: Sure, definitely. Thank you, first and foremost, Amy, for having me on the show. I just want to clarify a little bit the timeline of events. That first night, when they told me not to hug, that prompted me to seek change internally. I reached out to a regional director, who assured me that shethe next morning, she assured me that things would change, things would be different.

.

Four more Brazilians came. I found it extremely difficult. I tried to help, through the organization. I tried to talk to people. And despite being a Brazilian citizen and having had professional translation work, they did not allow me to help. They really were blocking me at every turn.

.

I thenI then requested a leave, a time off, a week off, to process what I had gone through. And prior to that, the CEO, Dr. Juan Schez, made his rounds and began asking for money. And after they denied my leave request, it was then that I made theI put in my resignation as a conscientious objector. So, just to add

.

AMY GOODMAN: I dont understand what you said, Antar.

.

ANTAR DAVIDSON: Just addingyeah.

.

AMY GOODMAN: You said he was asking for money?

.

ANTAR DAVIDSON: Yes. So, hebasically, they called mandatory meetings at our facility, three different mandatory meetings. And he initially said that theyre goingthey need 500 more people. Theyre going to drop the ratio from one-to-five to one-to-three for the tender age kids, so that refers to the direct care ratios, so that they would have more staff to take care of those younger kids. Five hundred kids500 new employees, he said we needed.

.

He told then a sob story about a minor who had come into a facility with very thick acne and how he felt so bad. Despite making a million dollars-plus, between him and his wife, in federal tax dollars, he said that he felt so bad that he couldnt do anything for this child with acne, and then he proceeded to basically present this employee giving program, where employees and staff were urged to give $10 of every paycheck or a one-time contribution of $240. He then had a second speaker kind of reinforce the policy, while passing around papers for people to sign away their checks. And so, yeah, I just definitely want to clarify that despite, of course, the acute problems of the zero tolerance policy, but also we shouldnt let this CEO off the hook, whos been making a million dollars-plus for the past five years, off the detention of children, of vulnerable immigrant children.

Nassar-MSU Scandal Puts Professional Licenses of 7 Under Scrutiny

Updated Jun 14, 12:30 PM; Posted Jun 14, 12:30 PM

Seven current and former health-care providers at Michigan State University are under investigation by the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs for their actions related to Larry Nassar, the former MSU doctor who molested patients.

.

The seven — four physicians, two athletic trainers and a clinical psychologist — have been identified by Nassar victims as people alerted over the years about Nassar’s misconduct.

.

Dr. William Strampel, an osteopathic physician who also was dean of MSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Nassar’s former boss. Strampel is now facing criminal charges for failing to enforce rules set specifically for Nassar, including having a chaperone in the room during exams involving “sensitive areas” and getting patient permission before examining or treating those areas.

.

Dr. Jeffrey Kovan, a osteopathic physician at MSU’s Sports Medicine Clinic. Kovan was the initial recipient of a complaint by Amanda Thomashow that she was molested by Nassar during a March 2014 appointment at the clinic. Kovan notified his supervisors of the complaint, although Thomashow told MSU Police she felt Kovan wasn’t taking it seriously, according to a police report.

.

Dr. Douglas Dietzel, an osteopathic physician who supervised the MSU Sports Medical Clinic at the time of the 2014 complaint. An investigation by MSU’s Title IX office cleared Nassar in that incident.

.

Dr. Brooke Lemmen, a former osteopathic physician at the Sports Medicine Clinic. She resigned in 2017 after Strampel reprimanded her for not telling MSU officials that she was aware Nassar stopped volunteering as a team doctor for USA Gymnastics in 2015 because of allegations of sexual misconduct. After Nassar was fired by MSU in 2016 and at his direction, Lemmen also removed boxes of documents from his office, according to a police report.

.

Dr. Gary Stollak, a retired MSU clinic psychologist. One of Nassar’s early victims, Kyle Stephens, says that in 2004 when she was age 12, she told Stollak that she had been abused by Nassar over a six-year period. Instead of contacting authorities, she says, Stollak arranged a meeting between Nassar and her parents. Nassar denied the allegations and the parents forced Stephens to apologize. Stollak, who retired in 2010, has said he does not remember the Stephens case and he destroyed his patient records when he retired.

.

Destiny Teachnor-Hauk, a MSU athletic trainer. Tiffany Thomas Lopez, a former MSU softball players who says she was molested by Nassar during treatments for sports injuries in 1999 and 2000, said she complained to Teachnor-Hauk that Nassar’s treatments seemed inappropriate.

.

Lianna Hadden, a MSU athletic trainer. Lopez said she also complained to Hadden about Nassar’s treatments. Jennifer Rood Bedford, a former MSU volleyball player, says she told Hadden in 2003 that she was uncomfortable about Nassar’s treatments, although Bedford said she was not specific about her complaint.

.

MSU colleagues initially defended Nassar, police investigation shows

.

LARA does not comment on pending investigations, said LARA spokesman Pardeep Toor.

.

The agency’s investigations are “strictly focused” on whether a license-holder has violated the Michigan public health code, he added.

House: Alarming Findings in MSU, Nassar Inquiry

Jonathan Oosting and Kim Kozlowski,

The Detroit News

Published 3:57 p.m. ET April 5, 2018

Updated 8:30 a.m. ET April 6, 2018

.

Lansing Larry Nassar was able to brazenly abuse women for decades because Michigan State University failed to properly pursue complaints, destroyed vital documents and allowed the disgraced doctor to exploit loopholes in university policies to avoid scrutiny, Michigan House lawmakers said Thursday.

.

A months-long inquiry by the House into how MSU handled accusations of sexual assault by the former gymnastics doctor produced alarming findings that were forwarded to the attorney generals office for further investigation.

.

While some of those findings remain under wraps because of an ongoing criminal investigation, bipartisan committee leaders disclosed several significant findings in a letter to House Speaker Tom Leonard, highlighting failures by MSU.

.

Nassar seems to have spent decades developing his ability to abuse patients without detection by identifying and exploiting loopholes in the policies that governed his professional conduct and patient relationships, wrote lawmakers, describing their review of MSU documents and question responses.

.

Medical records were never kept for many of Nassars treatments, they found. MSU did not have an adequate informed consent policy in place for much of the time he worked there, which Nassar methodically exploited, lawmakers said, and university policies did not require a chaperone to be in the room during sensitive examinations of minors.

.

In some cases, MSU had destroyed patients medical records by the time they reported Nassar to university police, lawmakers said. While the destruction did not violate state law or university policy, such records may have proven useful to at least one of the survivors seeking justice against Nassar.

.

MSU spokeswoman Emily Guerrant said following the inquirys release that MSU will be working with the House on its legislation and shares the joint concern of lawmakers who want to make sure the horrendous abuse that Larry Nassar executed cannot happen again.

.

An attorney for the university answered dozens of questions from lawmakers, which they also released.

.

Miller Canfield attorney Scott Eldridge told lawmakers that the university already has implemented a new privacy and chaperone policy. The universitys 10-year record retention policy exceeds the seven years required by state law, but the health team is conducting a global policy review, and there is potential that the minimum retention time will (be) addressed.

.

The House findings are the result of an extensive inquiry by the Law and Justice Committee and the Appropriations Subcommittee on Higher Education. They requested Nassar-related information from MSU on Jan. 25 and received more than 1,500 pages of documents.

MSU to NCAA: Nassar Sexually Assaulted 25 Student-Athletes,

EAST LANSING – Larry Nassar sexually assaulted at least 25 MSU student-athletes, but there were no NCAA violations, the university has told the college athletics governing body.

.

In January, during Nassar’s Ingham County sentencing hearing, the NCAA sent Michigan State University a letter regarding potential rules violations related to Nassar’s crimes.

.

The university responded on March 22 in a letter from attorney Mike Glazier, of the law firm Bond, Schoeneck & King, PLLC, to the NCAA’s vice president of enforcement. Glazier listed the current ongoing investigations of the university, including those by the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, U.S. Congress and the U.S. Department of Education.

.

(Read the letter at the bottom of this story.)

.

“I trust that you will see that the University is in no way attempting to sidestep the issues facing it, and that if the University had any reason to believe the criminal conduct of Nassar also implicated NCAA rules violations, the University would accept responsibility in that area as well,” Glazier wrote in the letter, which MSU released on Wednesday.

.

“However, after a thorough and analytic examination of NCAA legislation, and an application of the known facts associated with the Nassar matter to NCAA legislation, the University finds no NCAA rules violations.”

.

Glazier said Nassar’s criminal conduct was “abhorrent and a violation of every standard of conduct expected of university of employees.”

.

The letter recapped a meeting and phone calls involving MSU and NCAA officials that refined the issues the university needed to address in its response. It also stated that the university is committed to NCAA Bylaw 20.9.1.6, which covers the well-being of student athletes including their health and safety, but notes that bylaw is a guide and not subject to enforcement.

URL Shortening and Google and Alternatives

Google URL Shortener

Starting March 30, 2018, we will be turning down support for goo.gl URL shortener. From April 13, 2018 only existing users will be able to create short links on the goo.gl console. You will be able to view your analytics data and download your short link information in csv format for up to one year, until March 30, 2019, when we will discontinue goo.gl. Previously created links will continue to redirect to their intended destination. Please see this blog post for more details.

Transitioning Google URL Shortener to Firebase Dynamic Links
Friday, March 30, 2018

*

Posted by Michael Hermanto, Software Engineer, Firebase
We launched the Google URL Shortener back in 2009 as a way to help people more easily share links and measure traffic online. Since then, many popular URL shortening services have emerged and the ways people find content on the Internet have also changed dramatically, from primarily desktop webpages to apps, mobile devices, home assistants, and more.

*

To refocus our efforts, we’re turning down support for goo.gl over the coming weeks and replacing it with Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL). FDLs are smart URLs that allow you to send existing and potential users to any location within an iOS, Android or web app. We’re excited to grow and improve the product going forward. While most features of goo.gl will eventually sunset, all existing links will continue to redirect to the intended destination.

*

For consumers

*

Starting April 13, 2018, anonymous users and users who have never created short links before today will not be able to create new short links via the goo.gl console. If you are looking to create new short links, we recommend you check out popular services like Bitly and Ow.ly as an alternative.

*

If you have existing goo.gl short links, you can continue to use all features of goo.gl console for a period of one year, until March 30, 2019, when we will discontinue the console. You can manage all your short links and their analytics through the goo.gl console during this period.

*

After March 30, 2019, all links will continue to redirect to the intended destination. Your existing short links will not be migrated to the Firebase console, however, you will be able to export your link information from the goo.gl console.

Some alternatives to the Google URL Shortening Tool

The 5 Best Alternatives to Google URL Shortener – Zapier

https://zapier.com/blog/best-url-shorteners/

*

If you’ve ever relied on goo.gl to tighten up links for you, it’s time to start thinking about alternative URL shorteners. Google ended support for its Google URL Shortener at the end of March 2018 and is taking a year to fully phase out the tool.

*

URL shorteners make sharing written-out links more manageable. Say you want to provide a link on a business card, in an advertisement, or in an email format where hyperlinking isn’t ideal. A shortened URL takes up less space and keeps your text tidy. For example, using goo.gl, you can convert
https://www.blog.google/products/maps/wheres-waldo-find-him-google-maps/
to https://goo.gl/rVBBtP. It’s easier to read and easier for someone to copy and paste or type.

*

Some URL shorteners do little more than turn long links into short ones, while others let you customize the text of the new URLs, track click-through rates, and analyze other information about who’s clicking your links. Most URL shorteners have a free tier of service, but you often have to pay for added features, such as data and analysis. The five that made the cut for this list are easy to use and access, and each one stands out for one special reason, noted as “Best for” below.

URL shortening – Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/URL_shortening

URL shortening is a technique on the World Wide Web in which a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) may be made substantially shorter and still direct to the required page. This is achieved by using a redirect which links to the web page that has a long URL. For example, the URL “http://example.com/assets/category_B/subcategory_C/Foo/” can be shortened to “https://example.com/Foo”, and the URL “http://example.com/about/index.html” can be shortened to “https://goo.gl/aO3Ssc”. Often the redirect domain name is shorter than the original one. A friendly URL may be desired for messaging technologies that limit the number of characters in a message (for example SMS), for reducing the amount of typing required if the reader is copying a URL from a print source, for making it easier for a person to remember, or for the intention of a permalink. In November 2009, the shortened links of the URL shortening service Bitly were accessed 2.1 billion times.[1]

*

Other uses of URL shortening are to “beautify” a link, track clicks, or disguise the underlying address. Although disguising of the underlying address may be desired for legitimate business or personal reasons, it is open to abuse.[2] Some URL shortening service providers have found themselves on spam blacklists, because of the use of their redirect services by sites trying to bypass those very same blacklists. Some websites prevent short, redirected URLs from being posted.

A recent paper by Cornell Tech researcher Vitaly Shmatikov and independent researcher Martin Georgiev demonstrated that shortening URLs can have serious privacy consequences. Because shortened URLs are so short, they are vulnerable to brute-force scanning, meaning that attackers can guess multiple shortened URLs and read all of the working ones.
