kali9/iStockBy MERDITH DELISO, MARK CRUDELE, JOSH MARGOLIN, and AARON KATERSKY, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — A Brooklyn man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly stealing nine coronavirus relief checks from the mail.The nine checks totaled more than $12,000, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in Brooklyn Federal Court.Feng Chen, 31, allegedly was spotted going through the mail at several residential buildings and at a medical office in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, early Tuesday, according to the complaint.Feng was charged with possession of stolen property and criminal trespass at the state level, and with mail theft at the federal level.“For many families, these stimulus checks are a lifeline in these difficult times and anyone who tries to cut that lifeline will face the full weight of the law,” Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement. “This office will vigorously prosecute all those who seek to take advantage of the public health crisis.”The U.S. Postal Inspection Service has issued a warning about the potential theft of stimulus checks and asked law enforcement services to “exercise increased vigilance.”The IRS started mailing out the checks from the historic $2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus relief package last week.Approximately 70 million Americans are expected to receive stimulus payments in the mail. Those earning up to $75,000 in adjusted gross income will receive $1,200, with payments declining for those earning up to $99,999. Parents also are scheduled to receive $500 for each qualifying child. Anyone making at least $100,000 is ineligible.The IRS has rolled out a “Get My Payment” tool to allow people to track the status of their payment and submit direct deposit information to avoid waiting for a paper check.The public can report suspected coronavirus fraud by calling the National Center for Disaster Fraud hotline (1-866-720-5721) or emailing [email protected] © 2020, ABC Audio.

The House Committee on Roads and Transportation voted unanimously Wednesday in support of State Rep. Holli Sullivan’s (R-Evansville) bill transferring responsibility of dealer/temporary plates from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to the Indiana Secretary of State’s office.“As an industrial engineer, streamlining government for my constituents is always one of my top priorities,” Sullivan said. “It was a pleasure to work with Secretary Connie Lawson’s office on this effort to clarify the law and improve the division of dealer services.”If passed, House Bill 1365 would transfer responsibility for dealer/temporary license plates from the BMV to the Secretary of State after June 30, 2017.“I would like to thank Representative Sullivan for her work on this legislation,” Lawson said. “This bill will give automotive consumers an added convenience of 45 days to use paper license plates, plus increased protections for a driver’s personal information. In addition, it is important to the industry because dealers will now have 31 days to deliver titles to consumers after a vehicle purchase.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
The impact that illegal incursions have on the training estate is huge. Not only does it cause environmental damage, but it can disrupt planned military training activities which can impact on the MOD’s operational capability and readiness. We take our responsibility for public safety seriously and we want people to enjoy the Plain, but it can be a dangerous place if you don’t follow the rules. We’re hoping that the newly branded vehicles will stand out on the Plain and act as a deterrent, helping us in our attempts to better monitor activity on the Plain and educate people about what they can and can’t do. The marked 4×4 vehicles will be used later this month during Operation Aston, a joint operation run by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), Wiltshire Police and the Royal Military Police to help educate people about the impact their actions have on the Plain and to deter them from taking part in illegal, dangerous and damaging activity.The vehicles form part of an ongoing project to reduce the number of illegal incursions taking place on the Plain, and to ensure that it remains a safe place for the military to train and for those wanting to use it for legal leisure and recreational activities. The new 4×4 vehicles are easy to spot. Crown Copyright, MOD 2018The fleet, which includes both new vehicles and rebranded older vehicles, will rationalise vehicles and as a result will save the MOD thousands of pounds.Lt Col Stewart Andrews, the DIO’s Senior Training Safety Officer for Salisbury Plain Training Area (SPTA), said: Lt Col Stewart Andrews, DIO’s Senior Training Officer hopes that the vehicles will act as a deterrent.

News story: Defence Secretary and apprentices meet military’s most senior female officer on International Women’s Day
I hope that the young apprentices we met today are inspired by Air Marshal Sue Gray’s historic achievement to reach for the top. With all roles across the British military now opened to women, there are no limits to those looking to succeed in Defence. On a visit to the Defence College of Technical Training in RAF Cosford, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and Air Marshal Sue Gray met with some of the 45 female apprentices currently studying STEM trades at the college.Some nine trades were represented, ranging from aircraft engineering to cyberspace communications, survival equipment, photography and the emergency services, showcasing the breadth of skills of apprentices in the Armed Forces.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: I have always wanted to be that person who people look to in times of crisis and emergency, someone they can rely on. Being a firefighter and being in the RAF really gives me that. From those completing apprenticeships at the start of their careers, to the first female three-star officer, I am delighted to celebrate both National Apprenticeship Week and International Women’s Day with the young men and women who will mark the future success of the UK Armed Forces. Last year all combat roles in the UK Armed Forces were opened to women for the first time, including those in ground close combat and the Royal Marines.This event demonstrates the breadth of professions that women are already working in within the Armed Forces. As of 2018, a total of over 20,000 women are currently serving in the Regular and Reserve forces.AM Sue Gray was last month promoted to the rank of Air Marshal, becoming the RAF’s first ever female three star officer and the most senior woman to have ever served in the UK Armed Forces.She will shortly take up the role of Director General of the Defence Safety Authority, responsible for the regulation of Health, Safety and Environmental Protection across the Ministry of Defence.While visiting Cosford, the Defence Secretary also met with a number of women completing apprenticeships in the RAF, including 20-year-old firefighter Cerys Hopkins. Cerys, from Pontypridd in South Wales joined the RAF 12 months ago and is stationed at RAF Benson in Oxfordshire. She said:
There’s really nothing like a good mash-up video, bringing together two seemingly-unrelated worlds through the power of audio and video editing. That’s why we couldn’t help ourselves when we came across Wax Audio’s perfect mashing of Metallica and Herbie Hancock.Titled “Master Of Doin’ It,” the video seamlessly blends the hard rock of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” with Hancock’s “Doin’ It.” Somehow, the smooth classic funk and raucous Metallica power-rock work perfectly together.While this video might be a couple years old, it’s simply brilliant. Watch “Master Of Doin’ It” below, but be warned, you may not be able to listen to the original songs again…
[Cover photo by Jeremy Scott]With Col. Bruce playing what amounted to his own memorial service on Monday night, the ongoing New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has turned into something of a wake, as Duane and many more of the musicians involved Bruce’s life and career are gathered in New Orleans for various performances.Tonight, Duane Trucks, Eric Krasno, Oteil Brubridge, Danny Louis, Scott Metzger, Nate Werth, and Lyle Divinsky will come together at the Daze Between Band for a one-time-only performance at One Eyed Jacks. With the spirits of both Jazz Fest and Col. Bruce Hampton in the air–and some very special surprises in the wings–the Daze Between Band promises to put on a show for the ages tonight in New Orleans.Tickets for the show are here. Don’t hesitate–tickets are going fast, and this is one performance you definitely don’t want to miss! The larger-than-life passing of Col. Bruce Hampton at the end of his 70th birthday celebration Monday night (Hampton 70: A Celebration of Col. Bruce Hampton) has left the music world in a state of stunned disbelief. In the two days since his death, countless musicians, fans, and friends have spoken up about the invaluable lessons they learned from Hampton, affectionately known as “Granddaddy of the Jam Scene.” Today, Duane Trucks–who was onstage with Hampton when his body gave out–shared a touching message about the many ways the Colonel shaped the musician and the man he is today. You can read the contents of the note, posted to his Instagram below:dCol. Bruce Hampton shaped my entire being. I feel so lucky to have been around him since I was too young to remember. Having older brothers who revered him like some musical, philosophical guru trickled down to me in my formative years. Whether it was reading J. Krishnamurti before I could really understand it or listening to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan or Albert Ayler before I knew what I was hearing, his impact was everywhere around me. After high school I moved to Atlanta from Jacksonville with the hopes of one day playing with him. Just through listening to old tapes my brothers had of ARU as a teenager, I felt like he’d already taught me some ancient secret knowledge. Later I would find out first hand that that was exactly what he taught me. He taught me about transcendence. Transcending your instrument, transcending the music, transcending art itself, reaching for life. He always said “We’re not here to play music, we’re here to put the Devil in the room.” I always took “the Devil” as spirit. Whether it was the spirit of joy, the spirit of sadness, the spirit of humor, it didn’t matter what the emotion was. He would say “I don’t wanna hear what you practice in your bedroom. I wanna hear you!! How do you feel today? What’d you eat for lunch? Play THAT!” Everyday I learn something more from him. Last night. Today. Everyday. He was an open channel to the universe. We’re all lucky to have shared the planet with him. What we thought we were planning as a birthday celebration ended up being the most poetic farewell imaginable. Actually, it was unimaginable. As is everything with him. Now we say our goodbyes to him, but he will never be gone. He lives in every note played by the thousands of musicians he inspired. He lives in every conscious thought of those he enlightened with his wisdom. Now he’s off to be in the stars that so inspired him. Thank you Bruce. Thank you for the eyes to see and ears to hear.”

Though Shakespeare did not live through World War II, Mudge said he understands the dynamic in society when men come home from war, which is present in “Much Ado About Nothing.” Mudge was also excited about the formality and music of the time period, he said, which is performed live by a 12-member, all-women big band in the play.“We began asking, ‘Well, who is this band?’” Mudge said. “It didn’t seem right to have returning soldiers be musicians, and then we thought, ‘Well, who’s left behind when the guys off to war in 1943?’ And it’s the women.”The play also features women in the role of the factory workers, the friar and the constable.Mudge said the music for the big band was composed by Scotty Arnold, who used inspiration for the music from a musical written by his great-uncle, John Caldwell.“Some of the tunes you’ll hear in ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ are from 1945,” Mudge said. “Scotty has altered a little bit here and there, changed some of the lyrics using some of Shakespeare, some of his great-uncle and some of his own lyrics. It makes the music all the more special that he’s had a chance to, through the music, get to know this great-uncle of his who died the year he was born.”Besides the professional company, the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival features three additional programs, including ShakeScenes — the kickoff program for the festival in July — and Shakespeare in the Streets. Shakespeare in the Streets, a new item for this year’s festival, was a partnership with the Fremont Park Foundation and allowed South Bend community members to participate in a nine-week program and perform on stage in Fremont Park.The touring company, which performed “Twelfth Night” from July 16 through Aug. 21, uses a cast of the apprentices from the professional company show and allows them to tour regionally in locations such as Valparaiso, Mishawaka and Plymouth. The apprentices include students from Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s, in addition to students from colleges such as Carnegie Mellon.Together, the professional and touring company allow the young actors a paid experience similar to an internship during the summer. Mudge said the apprentices also have opportunities to participate in mentorship-like experiences with the professional actors in the professional company to learn about the industry and acting as a career.“We bridge the gap between professional theater and the training world,” Mudge said. “We’re really existing in both, which I think is unique among universities.”Tags: Much Ado About Nothing, notre dame shakespeare festival, Shakespeare Now in its 18th year, the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival is drawing to a close with its summer production of “Much Ado About Nothing,” directed by Drew Fracher. Performed by the Notre Dame Shakespeare professional company that includes student apprentices as well as professional actors, the play runs from Aug. 15 to 27 in the Patricia George Decio Theatre in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.Grant Mudge, the Ryan Producing Artistic Director for Shakespeare at Notre Dame, said he wanted to do a Shakespeare comedy after last year’s production of “The Tempest” — especially since the professional company had not produced a comedy in a long time. Mudge said he also liked the language of the play — which he called one of the Shakespeare’s most successful — and its ability to display the characters’ level of emotion.“There’s no magic, there are no fairies in this play,” Mudge said. “The magic that happens is between two humans and between friends and family.”
