Famed chef Mario Batali investigated for sexual assault by NYPD

first_imgGeorge Rose/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Beleaguered chef Mario Batali is being investigated by the New York Police Department for sexual assault allegations raised in a “60 Minutes” report that aired Sunday.The NYPD told ABC News that a woman came forward earlier this year to report the alleged assault that took place in the mid-2000s.The “60 Minutes” report featured an unidentified former employee of Batali’s, who spoke out about the 57-year-old chef and former TV star, saying he drugged and assaulted her in New York City more than a decade ago.After drinking wine with the chef at a popular Manhattan restaurant, the woman claims things got “completely foggy.”“I remember a moment where I was on his lap, kissing him. Like, he was kissing me,” she said on the program. “And then I remember throwing up in a toilet. And that is all. I woke up by myself on the floor. The first thing I think is I’ve been drugged.”Another thought that crossed her mind: “I’ve been assaulted,” she said.The woman added that she spoke to police after the alleged incident but did not file a report.A request for comment from Batali’s rep wasn’t immediately returned to ABC News, but the chef “vehemently” denied the assault to “60 Minutes.”https://twitter.com/60Minutes/status/998350571450064897As for other allegations against him, he told the show, “My past behavior has been deeply inappropriate and I am sincerely remorseful for my actions.”Last December four women came forward and told the website Eater that Batali had sexually harassed them.“I apologize to the people I have mistreated and hurt. Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted. That behavior was wrong, and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused to my peers, employees, customers, friends and family,” Batali said in a statement late last year.After the Eater piece, Batali was asked to leave ABC’s “The Chew” and he offered to step away from the day-to-day operations of his restaurant group. Batali’s former organization, the Batali and Bastianich Hospitality Group, told “60 Minutes” that it finds the allegations “deeply disturbing” and that “our partnership with Mr. Batali is ending. We have been actively negotiating with Mr. Batali to buy his interests in the restaurants.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Faust inauguration takes shape

first_imgThe inauguration of Drew Faust as Harvard’s 28th president will feature time-honored tradition — ancient artifacts and silver — world music, and talk of tomorrow’s promise.Preparations are nearing completion for the two-day event, which will kick off on Oct. 11 and conclude after the official installation ceremony on the steps of the Memorial Church in Tercentenary Theatre the afternoon of Oct. 12.Representatives of Harvard’s two governing boards, the Corporation and the Board of Overseers, are inviting the entire Harvard community to the installation, asking department heads to be flexible with work schedules and to allow staff to attend while ensuring departmental functions continue.“These festivities will provide us the opportunity to welcome to the presidency a superb scholar, teacher, and academic leader and to hear her thoughts as she and Harvard look forward,” Corporation Senior Fellow James R. Houghton and Board of Overseers President Frances D. Fergusson wrote in a letter to members of the Harvard community. “They will also give all of us the occasion to join together in affirming our collective commitment to the ideals of learning and Harvard’s high aspirations for the time ahead.”University Marshal Jackie O’Neill said Faust’s inauguration will combine ancient tradition and more modern touches that reflect the University’s new president.As with previous inaugurations, Faust’s will feature items and artifacts from Harvard’s past that are only brought out during highly ceremonial occasions, including antique silver, ceremonial keys, the University’s original charter, and the book containing the first sketches of the Veritas seal.The inauguration will feature more than ceremony, however. Academic symposia will bring an intellectual tone to the proceedings. The five symposia on Oct. 12 will examine the arts, health, war, justice, and science and engineering.On Oct. 11 in the Memorial Church, Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison will give a reading. At Sanders Theatre that evening, guests will enjoy a musical prelude hosted by actor and alumnus John Lithgow and Harvard alumni who have gone on to careers in the arts.A thanksgiving service in the Memorial Church, to which all members of the Harvard community are also invited, will begin inauguration day’s events at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 12, followed by the symposia and lunch. The official installation ceremony will begin with robing for faculty and delegates at 1:30 p.m. in Boylston Hall followed by the academic procession into Tercentenary Theatre at 2 p.m. More than 220 delegates from colleges, universities and learned societies across the globe are expected to participate. The installation ceremony itself, including a speech by Faust, is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m.The event will feature greetings from Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick on behalf of the Commonwealth, Pforzheimer University Professor Emeritus Sidney Verba on behalf of the faculty, Harvard Undergraduate Council President Ryan Petersen on behalf of the students, Harvard Alumni Association Associate Director Beverly Sullivan on behalf of the staff, University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann on behalf of higher education, and prominent historian John Hope Franklin on behalf of Faust’s academic discipline.While the installation service is open to the entire Harvard community, because of space constraints, other events will be ticketed.To help commemorate the occasion, the Harvard Archives is putting on a display of presidential memorabilia, featuring items from each of Faust’s predecessors. The display will be viewable in the archives, just off Tercentenary Theatre, on Oct. 11 and 12.The Fogg Art Museum is also mounting an exhibit of Kara Walker’s Civil War-era art in honor of President Faust, a Civil War historian.last_img read more

Beauty and the beast at Idroman 2013

first_imgWith the catchy strapline ‘alive in hell’, entries are still open for the seventh edition of Idroman, scheduled for 22-23 June on Lake Idro in Brescia, northern Italy.Lake Idro is an Italian glacial lake situated largely within the Province of Brescia and in part in Trentino. At 368m above sea level it is the highest of the Lombard pre-alpine lakes. The race organisers, Triathlonlecco and Spartacus Events point out that the three races on offer – Sprint, Olympic and Middle tri distances – ‘have in common an amazing landscape and hard courses.’The organisers point out that ‘the bike course is quite frightening, more than any other in Italy and the 15% rising roads link the lakes of Idro, Valvestino and Garda.’ With brutal climbing on offer, triathletes will be rewarded with the beautiful waters of Idro, the green of the Alto Garda Bresciano Park and the landscape of the Benaco area.The starting lists for all three race formats include ‘the bravest Italians’, alongside a number of foreign athletes travelling from Germany, Switzerland, Russia and France to take on the ride to hell and the rewards of scenery from heaven!The organization engines of Triathlonlecco/Spartacus are now getting into gear for the Idroman event this June. The race director’s team are working closely with local authorities in Idro, Capovalle, Valvestino, Gargnano, Magasa and the community of Montana Alto Parco Bresciano, the Land Office of Lago d’Idro-Valle Sabbia and several other local associations.The Idroman organisational machinery is also working with a variety of accommodation providers in the area – from hotels, villas, pensions, bed & breakfast and farm holiday stays. The all-new swimming centre Narciso Idronuoto, will also be available before and after the race for rest and relaxation.Entries are still open for events on both Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June.www.idroman.it Relatedlast_img read more

Mobile screening – Digital development

first_imgAstec Mobile Screens’ recently launched compact Ranger lineThe Ranger line will comprise tracked models including jaw, impact and cone crushers, as well as incline screens and trommels.Marketed for the construction, landscaping, quarrying markets and the rental sector, the compact equipment will be available through the manufacturer’s network of licensed dealers.Earlier, Kolberg-Pioneer added a two-deck, 1.21 x 2.13 m (4 x 7 ft) pre-screen option to its FT4250 mobile impactor plant. The new option allows producers to scalp the feed, crush the material and post-screen all on one unit.By pre-screening the feed, users can maximise their scalping ability and minimise the amount of undersized material passing through the chamber, reducing wear costs and increasing final product by 30%.Article first published in the March 2020 issue of Demolition & Recycling International Keestrack supplied its K5e to the civil engineering department of Denmark’s Frederikshavn municipality (photo: Keestrack)“We tested a wide range of offers on the market – the diesel-electric full hybrid plug-in concept from Keestrack seemed to us the most mature,” said Gert Christensen, who is responsible for application technology and the equipment fleet at Park og Vej,“Here, it was not just about building on an additional engine, but the whole process has been electrified very thoughtfully. In full electric operation, all system functions are available without any performance or functional limitations.“In conventional diesel-powered operation, we benefit from the independence of the track-mounted screen with significantly lower fuel consumption and emissions.”With a weight of around 30 t, the K5/K5e series represents the mid-range of Keestrack’s scalper programme, consisting of six models.An extensive choice of screen media for the 5,000 x 1,500 mm (196 x 59 in) double-deck screen box and the hydraulic adjustable screen angle, guarantee a wide range of applications – from highly efficient rock scalping to soil processing with a capacity up to 450 t/hr, from screening construction waste to the production of marketable end products in three fractions.Like all Keestrack scalpers, the K5 series is optimised for transport: all conveyors and other components can be hydraulically folded for low-bed transport (width 2,600 mm or 102 in) – on site, the unit without support legs is quickly operational.Materials for reuseAlso in Europe, a series of 167 improvements is currently underway around the southern ring road of the Finnish city of Lahti. One of the main contractors for the project, Skanska, has added a new tool to its armoury in making the work as efficient, cost effective and environmentally friendly as possible. Allu DN Series Transformers have been successfully put to work screening excavated materials for reuse on the project, boosting the environmental credentials and efficiency of the project.Given that the project has impressive environmental credentials that will not only improve the infrastructure, but will also lead to a higher quality of life for residents, the way excavated materials are treated has been an important concern on all the sub-projects. One of the main contractors, Skanska Infra, has been using Allu DN Series Transformers for landscape purposes, helping to create noise reducing embankments and to mix soil for planting.The Allu Transformer comprises of an attachment which screens, crushes, aerates, blends, mixes, separates, feeds and loads materials. This results in the feed material being effectively transformed into highly valuable products, making operations on the project more efficient, and more profitable.At the heart of the Transformer is the unique top screen of its bucket. This is where the screening blades spin between the top screen combs with the end material size being defined by the space between the combs.Effectively these screening combs carry most of the material weight to ensure the drums and bearings take on less impact and load.The use of the machine has been pivotal on the ground works and landscaping operation on the southern ring road project.Following excavation the material is collected and its usability is analysed, then screened and mixed using the Transformer to provide a smooth soil mixture.After that, the ready to use soil is spread where it is required, ready for any planting. In the latter case, the construction of sight and noise barriers, as well as reaffirming the environmental credentials of the project, sees reforestation as a key part of it.Operating on smaller sitesAstec Mobile Screens has announced the launch of a new compact product range said to be ideal for operations on smaller sites.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# Powerscreen’s Chieftain 1700X Hybrid features an aggressive screenbox and improved screening angleThe new Chieftain 1700X Hybrid boasts a highly aggressive screenbox with a patented 2/4 bearing drive system and improved screening angle. Growing on the Powerscreen legacy of high performance four-bearing screen boxes, the 4.87 x 1.52 m (16 x 5 ft) screenbox maintains the screenbox size and mesh of the current Chieftain 1700, but with increased screening force.After listening to customers, a number of other plant changes have been implemented, such as changing the way the fines conveyor is suspended for easier transport as well as self-tensioning side conveyor sealing rubber and feed-boot improvements for quicker set up, Lower running speed for reduced fuel usage without compromising power combine to give what is described as an unrivalled machine.The three-deck machine is available with a hydraulically folding extended auxiliary conveyor, complete with a transfer conveyor that allows easy recirculation with the entire range of Powerscreen crushing machines. Alternatively with a quick valve change the conveyor can run in reverse, effectively turning the machine into a two-deck screen, allowing maximum versatility with a single plant.Hybrid option is an alternative energy sourceThe Powerscreen Hybrid option gives customers an alternative energy source, letting them choose which fuel to use depending on cost, location and availability. This option will be of special interest for customers in areas where electricity is more cost effective than diesel fuel and on sites where electricity is the preferred energy source. Powerscreen Hybrid machines are fitted with an additional electric/hydraulic drive system which can be connected to an external electricity supply once the machine has been set up on site.It will be shown at the ConExpo event in Las Vegas, USA, from March 10 to 14, and Powerscreen global product line director Sean Loughran said: “ConExpo is the perfect platform for us to showcase our new innovations and products to the market.“We have been making strides in recent years with our digital technology and will have something special on the stand to showcase our offerings. Powerscreen staff and distributors are looking forward to meeting with customers to discuss the features and benefits of our extensive product portfolio.”The Danish port of Frederikshavn in the Nordjylland region is the administrative seat of the municipality, which extends for about 85 km (52 miles) along the Baltic coast to Skagen. Recently it has seen a major project for Belgian equipment manufacturer Keestrack.Road and civil engineering department Park og Vej is responsible for the municipal traffic infrastructure and its 130 employees are also responsible for recycling construction waste.Coarse mineral construction rubble is stored temporarily at its central yard and is periodically processed by a crushing contractor. Another 10,000 t of soil and excavation bulk are treated annually using the department’s own processing technology. Until last year, a mobile 6 x 2 m (20 x 7 ft) drum screen has been in use, but this changed to horizontal screening technology and the Keestrack K5e mobile scalper.It had opted almost immediately for an electric drive concept but did not want to renounce the flexibility of a mobile plant so the equipment would still be versatile to work on the central yard, decentralised depots or large construction sites.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#center_img Powerscreen has been making major developments with digital offerings in recent years with its Pulse Telematics System and Omni, described as a cutting edge safety solution and launched in 2019.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#last_img read more
