This is a story about a horrific massacre and a death row inmate's claims of innocence. Kevin Cooper's case has drawn worldwide attention, including from Pope Francis and Kim Kardashian West. The heartbreaking story about the brutal assault that left four dead and one young survivor in Chino Hills, Calif., also raises questions about the initial police investigation, the loss of key evidence, and whether someone else is actually the killer. "Nearly 20 years ago, I got a stack of letters from an inmate at San Quentin Prison," "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty reports. "His name is Kevin Cooper – and he wrote that he had been framed, as he put it, 'for something that I didn't do.'" Moriarty and "48 Hours" began exploring the case, the investigation, and Cooper's claims of innocence when she got the letters, and her reporting continues to this day. In 1983, someone brutally murdered Doug and Peggy Ryen, their daughter Jessica, 10, and a family friend, Christopher Hughes, 11. … [Read more...] about Kevin Cooper case: Was the wrong man convicted in the 1983 Chino Hills massacre?

January is a tough month. After the highs of December, the financial and morale lows of January can hit hard. But if you've been enjoying eating out, shopping and living well during the festive period, there are ways to keep doing that while saving yourself some cash. Some may be obvious to you, but others may have you thinking outside the box. Here are a few suggestions. 1. Dine out at professional training restaurant Your local college may not immediately spring to mind when it comes to fine dining, but it probably should. This is where chefs of the future learn their trade, overseen by professionals. And since those cooking and serving your food are hospitality and catering students, you can enjoy top-notch food for a great price. The thing to remember of course is that they aren't usually open all the time, just during term-time. So bear that in mind. If you're in Cardiff, visit Nant Restaurant or The Classroom/Y Dosbarth. Swansea diners can visit The Vanilla Pod. If you're local … [Read more...] about 15 ways to save money in January but still have all the luxury you want
The US and China are engaged in a trade war nothing seems able to stop. It began with President Donald Trump’s threats against those who ‘steal from us’ (18 April 2017), to which President Xi Jinping replied: ‘No one should expect us to swallow anything that undermines our interests’ (1). A war of words soon led to punitive import tariffs: the US imposed 10-25% on a range of Chinese goods and China retaliated. This began in the spring, dragged on through the summer and looks set to continue beyond this winter. It’s sometimes hard to distinguish real measures from sensational headlines. The US compiled a list of 5,745 Chinese products (including steel, aluminium, chemicals, textiles and electronics) with a value of $200bn (compared to total imports worth $505bn in 2017) that face a 10% duty until 1 January 2019, and 25% thereafter. There are several exemptions: smart watches, a sector in which Apple is market leader, are … [Read more...] about Trade truce between the US and China
November 02, 2018 06:01 PM The email that could lead to the greatest revolution in the history of European football begins with a completely harmless sentence: "Hi Romano, I would have another interesting issue where we would like to mandate you." The message was sent by Michael Gerlinger on Feb. 3, 2016. Its recipient: the international law firm Cleary Gottlieb. Gerlinger, 45, heads up the legal department at FC Bayern Munich and is more or less the team's behind-the-scenes brain. He rarely appears in public, but team CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge hasn't made an important decision without him in over a decade. Gerlinger's mail is explosive. It concerned nothing less than the future of European football. In it, Gerlinger instructed the lawyers to examine whether FC Bayern Munich could withdraw from the German league, the Bundesliga, and whether the team would have to allow its players to play for the national team in the future. The Bundesliga without Bayern Munich? The national … [Read more...] about Documents Show Secret Plans for Elite League of Top Clubs
Samanth Subramanian reports on the Mumbai bank jobNirav Modi didn’t seem like the kind of person who needed to rob $2bn (€1.7bn) from a bank. He’s a short man, 47 years old and losing hair, the pocket square in his jacket always arranged to fussy perfection.His daintiness befitted a jeweller to the stars. Kate Winslet wore a Modi bracelet and Modi earrings to the Oscars. Dakota Johnson wore a similar set to the Golden Globes.Priyanka Chopra gazed out of Modi advertisements. Naomi Watts attended the opening, in 2015, of his emporium on Madison Avenue. Christie’s once put his Golconda Lotus necklace on the cover of its catalogue and auctioned it for over $3m.His stores — in Las Vegas, Macau, Singapore, Beijing, London — were boutiques of bling, where white light bounced off the arrayed gold and diamonds. He told people he wanted 100 shops by 2025. Last year, Forbes estimated his worth at $1.8bn.A good casting director would have marked him for the role … [Read more...] about Did a jeweller to the stars commit India’s biggest bank fraud?
