Abuse investigation underway at home of Chiefs’ star wide receiver Tyreek Hill

first_imgNick Cammett/Diamond Images/Getty Images(OVERLAND PARK, Kan.) — A police investigation into the abuse of a child is underway at the home of Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill, according to police reports.Two police reports in the past two weeks detail an investigation into allegations of battery, child abuse and neglect at the Overland Park, Kansas, home. The police reports were obtained by Kansas City ABC affiliate KMBC-TV.Hill is not mentioned in the police report from Thursday, but his partner, Crystal Espinal, is listed under “others involved.”The victim, listed only as a “juvenile,” suffered a minor injury in the incident, according to the report.Hill has not been charged with any crime.The Kansas City Chiefs acknowledged they were aware of the incident in a statement.“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” it reads. “We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We will have no further comment at this time.”Hill has been elected to the Pro Bowl in all three of his seasons in the NFL, all with the Chiefs. He was an All Pro as a returner in his rookie season and as a wide receiver last season. He has twice finished in the top 10 in the league in receiving yards.News of the abuse incidents broke on the same day Kareem Hunt, Hill’s former teammate, was suspended for eight games by the league after video emerged last year of him shoving and kicking a woman in February 2018. Hunt was immediately cut by the Chiefs, and later signed with the Cleveland Browns.Hill’s agent did not respond to a request for comment from KMBC-TV. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Digging the rain

first_imgStudents, faculty, and Native American tribal representatives gathered in soggy Harvard Yard Thursday to officially open the fall archaeology season, during which students will get a taste of fieldwork even as they help to illuminate Harvard’s roots.The gathering occurred near Matthews Hall, where archaeology faculty members have led students in digs for the past several years. The excavations seek the remains of Harvard’s Indian College, one of the University’s earliest buildings. The Indian College initially housed a group of Indian students who were admitted to fulfill Harvard’s charter, which dedicated the institution to the education of colonial and Indian youth alike.The class, “Archaeology of Harvard Yard,” builds on the work of Summer School students who began to dig in July and continued into August. Class instructors hope to reach a feature uncovered when the College class was last offered in 2009 that appears to be a foundation trench for the Indian school. This fall’s class is taught by lecturers on anthropology Diana Loren and Patricia Capone, both associate curators at the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, and by senior curatorial assistant Christina Hodge.During the ceremony, held outdoors near the dig site under gray skies after days of rain, Freshman Dean Tom Dingman wished students luck as they toiled in work that he said will help members of the Harvard community to understand themselves better. Elizabeth Solomon, assistant director of academic affairs and fellowship programs at the Harvard School of Public Health and a member of the Massachuset at Ponkapoag tribe, told students that the items they recover are part of a larger story, whose gaps they will help fill in, but which will remain incomplete.Anastasia Walhovd ’13 (left) and Tia Ray ’12 kick off the semester’s digging with a ceremonial push of a shovel.Both Solomon and Shelly Lowe, executive director of the Harvard University Native American Program, reminded students that they were digging on land that belonged to native peoples — the Massachuset specifically — before Harvard ever existed.“It’s not just a Harvard story; you’re telling a tribal story,” Lowe said, adding that if one has to tell a story, digging a big hole in Harvard Yard that people have to walk around isn’t a bad way to do so.The semester’s digging began with a ceremonial push of a shovel by senior Tia Ray, who took the class in 2009, and by Anastasia Walhovd, a junior archaeology concentrator taking the class for the first time.last_img read more

Notre Dame seniors prepare for life after graduation

first_imgAs members of the class of 2019 receive their diplomas and complete their undergraduate careers, their eyes turn toward beginning their lives after college. For some, this beginning takes the form of employment, others in the form of further graduate education and some will begin their post-graduate lives doing service.According to the University‘s “First Destination” statistics for the Class of 2018, 65% of Notre Dame graduates are expected to be employed within six months of graduation. Ryan Willerton, Notre Dame’s associate vice president for career and professional development, said the University expects consulting, financial services and technology to be the most popular industries for Notre Dame graduates. Willerton also said many of the class of 2019’s first jobs will be steppingstones for the rest of their careers.“For many of them, it’s a first destination; it’s a first stop for a student who might pursue this for two or three years and then realize, ‘I’ve got a great education as a foundation, I have an opportunity to learn these skills and network, get into the Notre Dame alumni network as well, and then be able to leverage that for a career pivot,’” he said. “That’s really what we’re trying to do here in the [Center for Career Development] — give students the tools so they understand how to utilize these resources for the rest of their life. It’s not just about getting a first job or getting into grad school — these are the tools that you need, these are the skills you need to develop and the competencies you need to gain, so you can pivot and you can advance your career from there.”Senior David Scaramucci, a management consulting and Peace Studies double-major, said he credits the Center for Career Development with providing him the infrastructure necessary for landing a job in consulting prior to his graduation.“I knew I wanted to go into consulting and they just have everybody there — it was an easy middleman to help me as a student to connect with the employer,” he said.While about two thirds of the senior class will enter the workforce, 22% of the Class of 2018 pursued graduate degrees, according to the First Destination survey.Senior Evan Nichols, a biology major and Constitutional Studies minor who will be pursuing a PhD in biology at Stanford University in the fall, said his experience performing research as an undergrad was an impetus for his decision to pursue a graduate degree.“I’ve been working with a professor on campus doing research for three years now, and I kind of got the bug for research and being able to ask questions and answer questions, I really then set my career path because these are the things I’d like to continue to do,” Nichols said. “ … Going to graduate school and getting a PhD is the first step on that process, so I’m really excited to do it.”If recent trends in Notre Dame graduates continue, approximately 7% of graduates will pursue service directly out of college, Willerton said. This number is almost 10 times larger than the national average for college graduates.“Notre Dame’s service number is much higher than many other colleges and universities, and that’s one of the things that makes Notre Dame distinct,” he said.Notre Dame’s placement rate — or the percentage of alumni with post-graduate plans — of graduates six months after they receive their diploma hovers around 98%. Willerton said this high rate is a result of the way Notre Dame educates students for real world success.“You need to make sure you’re developing not only the leadership skills but also the interpersonal skills,” Willerton said. “When we talk to our employers, we hear over and over that Notre Dame students excel in their interpersonal relationships. The ability to work as a team, those are core skills that students are going to need and its one of the reasons Notre Dame graduates are finding their way into managerial and leadership positions more than other universities because they have these skills.”Scaramucci said his academic track at Notre Dame has prepared him with those interpersonal skills as well as a critical perspective of his surroundings.“I think sometimes you’re in class and you’re like, ‘I don’t understand how this relates to outside life,’ but I think my management consulting major was so much group projects and presentations that I’m so comfortable doing that now and that’s a lot of what consulting is,” Scaramucci said. “From the Peace Studies perspective, you see how complex problems can be and how sometimes well-intentioned proposals sometimes have negative consequences and how you should be aware of those and how you should critique them when they arise.”This process of developing leadership skills in and outside the classroom, Willerton said, begins with the University’s unique residential system.“It starts in our residence halls,” he said. “The residential tradition and what we have here where you’re starting off as a freshman living with seniors and you’re seeing that modeled behavior where they understand that college is more than just going to class and relaxing and playing sports and going to games, it’s really about figuring out who you are as a person and how you translate that into the rest of your life.”Nichols said his time at Notre Dame has helped him expand his academic horizons beyond his immediate interests.“I’ve really gained an appreciation for having a holistic intellectual life. Not being able to just focus on a single discipline like biology, but also being able to think about some of the bigger questions,” he said.“ … I think a lot of disciplines are all trying to answer similar questions when you really zoom out and get the big picture view. So, I think being able to appreciate other people’s approaches to things and being able to digest them is what I’ll be able to carry out of Notre Dame.”Tags: Center for Career Development, Class of 2019, Commencement 2019, First Destinationlast_img read more

Video of Long Islander Trying to Charge iPhone on Broadway Set Goes Viral

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A Seaford man reached viral status this week when a cell phone video caught him in the act of brazenly climbing onto a Broadway stage to charge his dying iPhone.Nick Silvestri, 19, and his family were taking in Broadway’s “Hand of God” on July 2 when he crawled onto the set during the show and plugged his power-starved iPhone into an outlet that turned out to be fake. His unsuccessful attempt caused an immediate ruckus, shocking the audience and prompting security to intervene. A video of the episode posted on YouTube four days later with the title “Moron jumps on stage on Broadway to try and charge his phone in a fake outlet” has nearly a quarter of a million views.The Nassau County Community College student revealed in an interview with Playbill that he interrupted the show because his phone was running low on juice, not in response to a dare. He first got anxious at dinner, when he tried and failed to charge the phone at a nearby restaurant. Silvestri said they had enjoyed a few drinks and “were a little banged up.”“I was thinking that they were probably going to plug something in there on the set, and I figured it wouldn’t be a big deal if my phone was up there, too,” he told Playbill.After his attempt, Silvestri lobbied the security guards to let him retrieve his phone, Playbill reported. Instead, one of the guards grabbed it and took Silvestri back to his seat. They allowed him to remain for the rest of the show.His initial apology appeared to lack remorse.“Hey, I’m sorry if I delayed your show five minutes,” he told Playbill. “But you got a lot of attention from this, so maybe I made your show a little better [known].”Members of the cast were not amused by his antics–even if they inadvertently generated publicity for their production.The star of the show, Steven Boyer, told the New York Daily News that Silvestri’s distraction delayed the show by five minutes.The News and other city tabloids have reported that actors such as prize-winning Patti LuPone, a Northport native, have recently been going public to complain about irritating theatergoers sending text messages, glancing at their watches, and falling asleep during their performances. LuPone, without stepping out of character, saw a woman seated at the end of the second row texting on her phone, went into the audience and grabbed it from her before she could react. The woman had to wait until the performance was over to get it back from the stage manager. LuPone’s taking matters in her own hands prompted editorial praise at Newsday, the Daily News and the New York Post.Silvestri reportedly issued a formal apology to the cast on Friday. It’s not known whether he phoned it in.last_img read more
