On Thursday, USC will host its first Critical Issues Forum designed to give experts a chance to discuss important situations facing society, starting with financial problems in the state government.The forum, “Going For Broke: Governance and the Fiscal Crisis,” will include six guest speakers who will discuss the state’s current economic status.David Galaviz, executive director of Local Government Relations, said the forum, which was organized through the School of Policy, Planning and Development, will benefit USC’s relationship with community and government officials.“The Critical Issues Forum is part of an overall strategy to improve the connections that the university has with policymakers,” Galaviz said.He said PPD is hoping to work with policymakers to help confront challenges facing society.Los Angeles Councilmember Bernard Parks, who will also speak at the event, said the forum is a good chance for students to learn about the financial situation.“Even if it doesn’t fit into their major or is not something they’re studying, it’s how this state and city are going to conduct themselves in this crisis, what the government is currently doing and how they’re conducting themselves in those efforts,” he said.Dowell Myers, a professor who will speak at the forum, said this forum will be part of a continuing attempt to help effect change.“It’s an example of USC taking leadership in the state,” Myers said.Galaviz said they expect about 200 people to attend the first forum.The six-member committee includes Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer William T. Fujioka; California State Controller John Chiang; Parks; and Fiscal Policy Advisor for California Forward Fred Silva.It will also feature two USC professors: Myers, the director of the USC Population Dynamics Research Group; and Bedrosian Center Director Daniel Mazmanian.“We feel that experience of the six panelists can really create a strong learning experience and can get students thinking about how to solve these pressing public policy issues,” Galaviz said.Myers said he believes the forum is a step toward finding a solution.“You need to have lots of dialogue,” he said. “There’s a lot of ideas being put on the table.”These forums will be a semiannual event, Galaviz said.Preliminary ideas for future forums include the film industry, homelessness and health care.
FLAVIEN PRAT, WILD AT HEART, WINNER: “I had a good trip. She didn’t break very well but I got a good trip.“The pace was fast but that’s the way it set up today. She won pretty easy though, she was much better today than last time out.“I worked her before her last race and I felt she was much better today. I was pretty confident going into today.” NOTES: The winning owner is Ramona Bass of Fort Worth, TX. TRAINER QUOTES RICHARD MANDELLA, WILD AT HEART, WINNER: “After the scratches, the race got a bit easier. We were anxious to see what she could do on the turf, but I’ll take what happened here today.“She impressed me today. She’s always tries to be a good mare but just wasn’t quite breaking through.“This seems to be a good distance for her. She’s quick enough to sprint if you try that and she’s able to go little further as well. We just really needed to win a stake so I feel good about this.“You know I’m partial to Flavien. To me, he looked great when he was 18 years old. I think he does make a difference. I think he’s one of the best that we’ve seen in a long time.” JOCKEY QUOTES
John Aldridge insists Liverpool already have a ready-made replacement for Raheem Sterling in Jordon Ibe.The Reds youngster is set to leave Anfield this summer, with Manchester City the firm favourites to land the 20-year-old.City have already seen two bids turned down but are expected to return with another offer and could even match Liverpool’s £50million valuation.But former Merseyside hero Aldridge claims Brendan Rodgers doesn’t need to go and splash the cash on an alternative for Sterling.“Liverpool have a ready-made replacement for Raheem Sterling in Jordon Ibe,” he told the Weekend Sports Breakfast show. “He’s a terrific player and has got so much potential.“He’s got as much, if not more potential, than Raheem had at that age. He’s a big strong lad, very direct and a better finisher than Raheem.“It’s a bonus for Liverpool that they already have one on the shelf.”
A UK judge on Friday set a February 2020 timeline for the extradition trial of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, who faces charges of computer hacking and espionage in the US.At a Westminster Magistrates’ Court hearing in London, Chief Magistrate Emma Arbuthnot ruled that a full extradition hearing lasting five days should begin on February 25 next year, after UK home secretary Sajid Javid had certified the US extradition request.Assange, who appeared via video link from the high-security Belmarsh prison for the hearing, told the judge that “175 years of my life is effectively at stake” as he defended his website against hacking claims.”WikiLeaks is nothing but a publisher,” he said.The barrister representing the 47-year-old Australian national described the charges against his client as raising a “multiplicity of profound issues” and told the court that his client will also be challenging his 50-week imprisonment for breach of his bail conditions in the UK.”We say it [the case] represents an outrageous and full-frontal assault on journalistic rights,” said Mark Summers.A large group of Assange supporters had gathered outside the courtroom to chant slogans and wave placards calling for “Justice for Assange”.Opening the proceedings, barrister Ben Brandon, representing the US authorities, said: “This [case] is related to one of the largest compromises of confidential information in the history of the United States.”He claimed that the US evidence will show that Assange “first encouraged” former US army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to illegally obtain documents and then agreed with her to “crack” a password on a Pentagon computer.advertisement”By taking steps to crack the password hash, it’s said that Mr Assange was also attempting to illegally obtain and receive classified information,” Brandon said.The documents in question were said to be related to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and information on secret intelligence sources.”By publishing that unredacted material on the internet, Mr Assange created a grave and imminent risk that human intelligence sources, including journalists, human rights defenders and political activists, would suffer serious physical harm or arbitrary detention,” Brandon said.On Thursday, UK home secretary Javid confirmed that he had signed an order following a request from the US government to extradite the Wikileaks co-founder.”It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the home secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts, the senior Pakistani-origin minister said.Assange, who faces an 18-count indictment by the US Justice Department, had been too ill to appear before the court at a scheduled hearing last month and appeared wearing a grey T-shirt and still sporting his white beard.Judge Arbuthnot, who presides over a number of high-profile Indian extradition requests including that of liquor baron Vijay Mallya and diamond merchant Nirav Modi, is also in charge of his extradition trial. Unlike the India-UK Extradition Treaty, the US-UK treaty involves a relatively simpler legal process for extradition as the requesting state does not require to establish an elaborate prima facie case against the accused before the British courts.The charges against Assange under the US Espionage Act accuse him of soliciting and publishing classified information and conspiring to hack into a government computer.Assange has consistently denied the allegations and his supporters have accused the US and UK governments of an attack on free speech.He is currently serving a 50-week sentence in Britain for breach of his bail conditions after he spent seven years at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he had sought asylum.It emerged last week that plans for an extradition request from Sweden over allegations of sexual attacks in the country had suffered a setback as a Swedish district court ruled against Assange’s detention. Swedish prosecutors had dropped their rape investigation in 2017 but reopened it after Ecuador withdrew its offer of asylum to Assange in April this year and allowed Scotland Yard to arrest him.Also Read | Nirav Modi denied bail for fourth time, UK court says he may influence investigationAlso Read | Hearing of Nirav Modi bail plea concludes at UK high court, final decision on WednesdayAlso Watch | British police arrests WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London
On what is called “moving day” in golf, Tiger Woods moved the wrong way at the British Open. After posting 67 in consecutive rounds, Woods got off to a slow start and shot an even par 70, which left him five shots off the lead going into Sunday’s final round.Adam Scott, after a 68, is 11-under for the championship and leads Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker by four shots, Woods by five and Ernie Els and Zach Johnson by six.The weather at Royal St. Lytham for the third straight day was benign, leaving plenty of scoring opportunities. Tiger Woods, however, did not take advantage of the lack of wind and rain. He missed two putts the he rued and generally was unable to gain any kind of momentum.“I just didn’t make anything,” Woods said simply.Did not win any of his 14 majors while trailing in the final round. He also held the lead or shared it with someone else.Having to play from behind Sunday, Woods said he has “to make birdies” to apply pressure on Scott, who has been virtually flawless. On his bag is Steve Williams, the caddie Woods fired. Woods will be playing in the group behind Tiger Woods.Weather also could be a factor. If the forecast of wind and rain happens, it could help bring Scott back to the pack. Even still, Woos has to hold his round together, unlike Saturday.Woods got off to a sluggish start with a couple of bogeys, but he made the turn at 1-under 33 after closing the front side with three birdies in four holes. He hasn’t won a major title in more than four years, the last of his 14 championships coming at the 2008 U.S. Open, before his personal life imploded and his body was wracked by injuries.Tiger Woods couldn’t keep it going on the back side, a couple of misread putts costing him two crucial strokes.
