Facebook selfie leads to conviction in murder case
On January 15, 2018 Cheyenne Rose Antoine, 21, was sentenced to seven years in prison for murdering her best friend, 18-year-old Brittney Gargol. A selfie on the killer’s Facebook page of the two from the night of the killing showed the murder weapon, and ultimately helped secure her conviction. The murder took place in in Saskatoon, a large city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Gargol’s body was discovered on a road by a passerby on the morning of March 25, 2015. A black belt was found next to her body and was presumed to be the murder weapon after an examination of the body. The pair had been out together the previous evening for a night of drinking, smoking marijuana and partying. Antoine initially claimed that that after attending a house party and a few bars, Gargol left with an unidentified man, while Antoine went to see her uncle. Antoine’s story was suspicious and the police dug deeper into her Facebook page for clues. They were stunned when they discovered a picture from the night of the murder in which of the Antoine was wearing the same belt that was discovered next to the victim’s body. As her cover […]
Intel CEO sold millions in stock after Intel flaw discovered
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich sold off a large portion of his stake in the company on November 16, 2016—only months after Google informed the company that there was a significant vulnerability in its popular PC processors. This large stock sale took place before the vulnerability was public knowledge, which opens Krzanich up to allegations of possible misconduct. The sale left Krzanich with just 250,000 shares in the company, which is the minimum required by his contract as CEO. He sold 245,743 shares of stock that he owned outright, as well as 644,135 more shares that were promised to him in his contract. In all, he sold off over $39 million of stock a little over four months after he learned about the flaws in Intel’s processors. The chip vulnerabilities, known as Meltdown and Spectre, could affect billions of devices worldwide that are powered by the company’s microprocessors. These hardware vulnerabilities allow malware to steal information as it is processed on the computer. While running programs are typically not permitted to read data from other programs, malicious software can exploit Meltdown and Spectre to obtain data stored in the memory of other running programs. This could include your passwords stored in […]
Judge Overturns $417 Million Talcum Powder Verdict
On Friday a California judge overturned a $417 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson from a lawsuit by a woman who claimed she developed ovarian cancer after using its talcum powder for feminine hygiene. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Maren Nelson asserted that there was jury misconduct and errors in the first trial and agreed to the company’s request for a new trial. This decision follows a jury’s decision in August to award California resident Eva Echeverria $70 million in compensatory damages and $347 million in punitive damages. “We are pleased with Judge Maren Nelson’s ruling. Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease — but it is not caused by the cosmetic-grade talc we have used in Johnson’s Baby Powder for decades,” said Carol Goodrich, a spokeswoman for Johnson & Johnson Consumer, “The science is clear and we will continue to defend the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder as we prepare for additional trials in the U.S.” Mark Robinson Jr., one of Echeverria’s lawyers, said they will file an appeal immediately. “We disagree with the court’s decision,” he said. “A jury of Ms. Echeverria’s peers found the Johnson and Johnson defendants liable. We will ask the appellate court to uphold this […]
