It was in the form of an Apple note that synced to her email address, court documents allege. The Manhattan District Attorney's Office said Covlin wrote the note in an effort to confuse investigators and divert suspicion away from himself over Danishefsky’s death.

Business | The Rise and Fall of Carlos Ghosn Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Mr. Ghosn, the ousted Nissan executive, wasn’t supposed to succeed in Japan, but he never expected to fail like this. He faces charges of financial wrongdoing at the company he helped save. Credit Credit Kelsey Dake Supported by ByAmy Chozick and Motoko Rich Dec. 30, 2018 Carlos Ghosn was tired. At 64 years old, the chairman of an auto empire that spanned several continents and included Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi wasn’t bouncing back from jet lag the way he used to.

Searching through the mists of time (36 years ago), and at the 11th hour of Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation process, the Left has stage-managed accusations against Trump's nominee. And in this orchestrated accusation, the accuser does not remember the place and the time. Everyone she said knew of the incident denies it. Who knows what happened in this "he said, she said" spectacle? But no one can deny that it's 99-percent political. A California college professor and left-wing donor hired Democratic activist lawyers to manage this smear campaign. She said she did not want her accusation made public, but Democrats leaked her story to their comrades at the Washington Post and she was outed. Next, "drive-by media" like MSNBC will breathlessly report that 54-year-old Brett Kavanaugh kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach 53 years ago. The woman was also a judge, which showed his disrespect for the justice system and women at an early age. All these smears come down to … [Read more...] about Hart: Kavanaugh gets ‘Borked’: That’s your new Democratic Party

Andrews Lil Wayne was on a run in 2007 and 2008 unlike anything rap had seen before.Think Michael Jordan in the 1990s. Tiger Woods in the 2000s. Barry Bonds in 2004.We now live in a world where Kendrick Lamar owns a Pulitzer Prize and Kanye West has squandered his good will with a Twitter rant and an album that arrived with a whimper. A world where Pusha T and Drake have a beef so rich, it's basically Waygu.But the rap world a decade ago was an entirely different place, a world singularly ruled by one rapper: Lil Wayne. And it was all leading to one album: "Tha Carter III," which was released 10 years ago and crowned Wayne as the best in the game - a title he quickly lost.Let's rewind.Wayne began calling himself the "best rapper alive" around 2005, the year Hurricane Katrina ravaged his hometown of New Orleans. By then, he had been around for a … [Read more...] about The rise and fall of the ‘best rapper alive’
