ATO's National Office Revokes Charter From Indiana Chapter Over Oral Sex Video
Huffington Post - over 1 year
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Alpha Tau Omega revoked the charter and closed its Indiana University chapter Thursday following the release of a video purportedly showing a fraternity member performing a sex act on a woman. The national fraternity's action came just hours after the university announced it had suspended the campus chapter while it investigated the recording that surfaced on social media. Alpha Tau Omega's Indianapolis-based national office said the "highly inappropriate and vulgar video" from a smartphone shows an event last week involving a 21-year-old member of the chapter and two female exotic dancers hired by one of the members. It said the event involved about half the chapter and no pledge was compelled to participate. "Regardless, the actions are contrary to the ideals and principles of Alpha Tau Omega and are highly offensive," Alpha Tau Omega's national CEO Wynn Smiley said. In the video, the man in his underwear is surrounded by a crowd of shouting ...

Apps for wine lovers find their social side
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
If you don't snap a bottle shot when you drink a wine, was it really consumed? The value of the networked approach - and same applies to Twitter - is that you can follow a mix of friends and a growing roster of industry experts who are sharing what's on their own tables. Disclosure: Because I use Delectable, although not its ratings feature, I have been featured on the app from time to time. Essentially this is an excellent follow on the pro-am model that CellarTracker ( www.cellartracker.com) attempted a few years back. [...] he made Job No. 1 for Delectable's engineers to finesse complex visual recognitions - the ornate type, for instance, of which Burgundy is so fond.

Delectable also wants to sell, although they describe their approach as a decentralized "Airbnb m ...

Book review: The ingredients of love - faking it till you make it in Paris
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 3 years
France has a way of pulling in audiences like no other city in the world. Whether it’s for the Eiffel Tower, Carla Bruni’s Little French Songs or Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s rom-com Amélie, it is impossible not to be drawn to French culture, cuisine, language and its array of enigmatic mesdames et monsieurs. Author Nicolas Barreau seems well aware of this theory and decided to devote his second novel The Ingredients of Love to a combination of the above. As expected, his book has not only piqued the interest of Europeans but an international audience as well. It was first published in Germany in 2010 but after gaining considerable traction, has been translated into English as well. Barreau’s protagonist is a thirty-something Parisian restaurateur named Aurélie Bredin who wakes up one day to find her eccentric lover of two years gone forever. In the past, Aurelie had wilfully ignored Claude’s disappearing acts. However, this time she knows it’s different es ...

Students Banned From Sexting Their Professors
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The University of Connecticut's board of trustees enacted a strict new policy Wednesday banning undergraduate student-faculty romances, the Hartford Courant reports. Under the policy, graduate students can't have a relationship with their advisor or any faculty member for whom they are a teaching assistant, the Courant reports. The rules apply regardless of age, so even in the case where a non-traditional student is older than an instructor, romance is still forbidden. The executive committee of the UConn chapter of the American Association of University Professors said Wednesday they support the university's new policy, according to the Associated Press. "The relationship can be once, it can be short term, it can be long term, it can be a marriage -- everything in between," Associate Vice President Elizabeth Conklin told the Courant. "The intent is to capture it all ... When you see it, you know it." In the past, UConn's policy was simply to "strongly discourage ...

UConn Considers Banning Student-Faculty Sex
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The University of Connecticut is looking to implement a new policy in the fall semester banning professors and students from having sex with each other, after longtime music professor Robert Miller was placed on leave for a sexual misconduct probe. Miller, 66, is accused of sexual contact with children, sex with UConn students, visiting freshmen dorms and providing drugs to students, according to the state attorney general's office. The university first received word of the allegations in February, and Miller was placed on leave in June, the Associated Press reported. Miller, however, has not been arrested or charged with any crime. Currently, UConn just "strongly discourages" romantic and sexual relationships between faculty and student or between supervisor and employee. University spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz confirmed they are looking to change that policy language for the upcoming academic year, but insisted it's not because of Miller. "It was already in the work ...

UConn professor faces sexual misconduct probe
Fox News - over 3 years
A University of Connecticut professor is under investigation amid allegations of sexual misconduct and child molestation. UConn officials announced the investigations of 66-year-old Robert Miller on Monday. He hasn't been charged with any crime. According to UConn officials and the state attorney general's office, university employees were notified as far back as 2006 that Miller had sexual contact with children, but it wasn't until February of this year that school administrators were told of the claims. Miller was placed on administrative leave last month and barred from campus. Officials say a student reported that Miller had sex with UConn students, visited freshman dorms and provided drugs to students. It's not clear when that allegedly happened. And a state police search warrant says five men allege Miller molested them more than two decades ago when they were attending a camp started by Paul Newman for ill children, whe ...

Inmate missing since 1999 surrenders in Oklahoma
Fox News - almost 4 years
After 14 years on the run from the FBI and tips from witnesses in two countries, David Lee Kemp turned himself over to authorities in southwest Oklahoma early Friday morning, local authorities said. Kemp, of Lawton, Okla., was the only inmate to elude capture after escaping with eight other inmates on March 11, 1999, while awaiting trial on two first-degree murder counts in the killings of his ex-wife and her boyfriend. Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley said Kemp told police he was done running. "He said that he was just tired basically of running and it was affecting his health," Stradley told The Associated Press. Comanche County Jail records show Kemp was taken into custody at about 1:40 a.m. Friday on charges of felony first-degree murder and escaping from a county jail, a misdemeanor. The sequence of events leading up to his arrest started at a rest stop along Interstate 44, Stradley said, when Kemp kn ...

Malcolm Harris: Dave Matthews Is Doing What? With Whom?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Itica Pritica: A Collaboration by Beezy Bailey and Dave Matthews When I received a last-minute invitation to attend an intimate discussion with Dave Matthews and Beezy Bailey on their new collaborative exhibition at the Robert Miller Gallery, instead of sending in a RSVP, I responded, "You had me at Dave Matthews." Well that's not entirely true, but it is exactly what I was thinking. However, as I read beyond the headliners, I realized that Mr. Matthews was actually going to be discussing his recent collaboration which pays homage to Warhol and Rauschenberg with the famed South African artist Beezy blah blah blah. I wasn't familiar with the work of Mr. Blah, Blah, Blah, however, my blah, blah, blah quickly turned to profound respect and admiration once I googled and researched Mr. Bailey's poignant and intelligent work. So instead of a flippant RSVP, I reserved my spot with an enthusiastic -- YES. To accompany me on my 10:15 p.m. adventure (I've always been intimat ...

Melissa Berkelhammer: Dave Matthews and Beezy Bailey: Cocktails and Conversation
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
At No. 8 on Monday night, artist Beezy Bailey talked about how he convinced musician Dave Matthews to collaborate with him on their latest project, now (until April 13) on display at Chelsea's Robert Miller Gallery. Two holidays ago, "I proposed that he paint with me," Bailey said of Matthews, a long-time friend from South Africa. When Matthews expressed some apprehension, Bailey was quick on the take: "I said, 'Dave, no one has ever died making a painting." "Au contraire," moderator and P.S. 1 co-founder Alanna Heiss quickly interjected. "I'm sure many died looking at bad paintings," she quipped, to audience laughter. The discussion was part of a series put together by the No. 8 Cafe Society and The Committee, organizations that produce cultural events. No. 8 doyenne Amy Sacco presided over the proceedings which -- luckily for this writer -- began about 20 minutes fashionably late. What I quickly realized was that this collaboration -- the artists' first together in ...

EXCLUSIVE: Richard Gere On The Two Massive Hits He Didn't Even Like
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Think of Richard Gere, and it's invariably not long before the theme to either 'An Officer and a Gentleman' or ' Pretty Woman' turns up in your head. But it turns out these were the two films of in 40-year career that he struggled the most to like – initially. “I wasn't innately drawn to them as projects,” he explains to me in London. “I agreed to them because I needed the money or some other reason, and then I did the work to make it something I cared about. And they turned out to be two of my most successful movies, and ones I liked the most. “I was only ambivalent from that point in the beginning. By the time I make anything, I'm enthusiastic. I can't do it otherwise. I don't walk through anything. I never have done, and I never will.” Richard Gere with Julia Roberts in 'Pretty Woman' At this point, something miraculous occurs. Beneath the silver mane of hair which makes Richard Gere now look like a twinkly grandfather, or an elegant ambassador to Europe, no lo ...

Martin Kreloff: Before There was Basel: Miami Always Said 'Art' to Me
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"We're moving to Miami." That simple statement, spoken by my father in 1967, sent my entire life into a tailspin. In my early twenties, I was embarking on what promised to be a fascinating career as a New York artist. I had attended Parsons School of Design on scholarship and had eagerly ventured out into the competitive job market of Manhattan. Landing a job at an advertising agency, I was creating print ads for the movie studios. (My favorite tag line was for the Jane Fonda film, Cat Ballou -- "Cat Ballou ain't no Puss 'n' Boots!") The last thing I wanted was to be uprooted and banished to the cultural wasteland I imagined Florida, and Miami, to be. My mother, eager to keep the family together, convinced me that there were wonderful creative opportunities waiting for me, and that I'd be inspired by the vibrant, tropical colors of Miami. Well, you know what they say -- Mom is always right. In the early 1970s, Miami Beach was in severe decline. The once beautiful A ...

Help Still Wanted? Hopefuls Don't Shine, Fla. Extends Commish Search
Education Week - over 4 years
With the resignation of former Florida Commissioner of Education Gerard Robinson after just one controversial year, the state board of education embarked on a search for his replacement. The Florida department announced on Sept. 25 that the board is extending the previous deadline of Sept. 27 for applications to be the next commissioner. The new deadline to apply is nearly two months later, Nov. 30, and then the board plans to vote to name Robinson's replacement on Dec. 12. The news release I linked to doesn't state the reason for extending the deadline. But the "Naked Politics" blog for the Miami Herald reported that the initial list of 16 applicants was considered "lackluster by many observers." In addition, the blog item from Tia Mitchell said Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, who appoints the state board members, met with board Chairman Gary Chartrand (who was appointed chairman earlier this month) to discuss the search. So Florida officials have bought themselves more ...

    After more than three decades in the nonpartisan position of mayor, Miller, a Republican, was defeated on November 2, 1998, by Realtor Paul E. Osborne of Osborne-Humphress Realty Company, a Democrat.
    More Details Hide Details On Miller's death, Osborne described his former opponent as "a visionary who donated countless hours of his time to make the community better. I would say that most of Campbellsville's growth was because of his leadership." Osborne credits Miller with the development of the water line to the city from Green River Lake, the expansion of Campbellsville City Park, addition of a new municipal swimming pool, and the establishment of a professional, rather than volunteer, fire department. Osborne recalls that Miller worked all day at Tennessee Gas and then came to City Hall, where he remained as long as needed visiting with constituents and handling municipal business. According to Osborne, Miller "never heard of a problem he didn't like. He tried to solve all of them."

    Miller did not become a full-time mayor until 1986, when he retired from Tennessee Gas.
    More Details Hide Details Barry Bertram, the retired Commonwealth's Attorney from Campbellsville, noted that he and Miller had been friends for more than a half century: "You hardly ever run across anyone who didn't like Bob. He was the epitome of the public servant... he loved his job as mayor, and he loved people. He was a genuine person with fine Christian principles." Frank Metzmeier, a retired dentist and Campbellsville City Council member, described Miller as "one of the more outstanding members of our community. His commitment has never been surpassed... He looked beyond individual needs to the community as a whole." Metzmeier recalls that during the late 1970s and early 1980s, when Campbellsville experienced years of consecutive heavy rains, that Miller was often found "in the middle of the night helping to sweep basements" of his constituents. Robert Miller, Jr. (born 1949), said that his father got along well with people because he respected them: "He didn't like to tell people 'no' if he could help it.... He was the kind of person who could make the most of his time. He loved Campbellsville as much as anyone could. Some may love it just as much, but no one could love it more." Since his retirement, Miller had regularly played golf and helped to develop Windsor Gardens and Bluegrass Estates. In his last four years, Miller was afflicted with Alzheimer's disease.
