(AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — Switzerland’s Sarah Hoefflin is the Olympic champion in women’s slopestyle skiing.The 27-year-old put together an electric final run down the demanding course at Phoenix Snow Park on Saturday, posting a 91.20 to edge teammate Mathilde Gremaud for gold.

American Devin Logan, a silver medalist in Sochi, reached the finals but wasn’t a factor after either crashing or having execution problems in each of her last three runs.Unlike the women’s snowboarding slopestyle final, where wind wreaked havoc with the field, the issues this time around seemed to simply be the treacherous course. Only nine of the 36 runs in the finals were scored higher than 70, typically a benchmark for a relatively clean trip. Hoefflin was in position for the silver when she stepped into the gate for her last trip. Rather than try to simply hold on to second, she went for the top spot. She finished with an off-axis 720 degree flip. She raised her arms after sticking the landing before skiing into the arms of her coaches.Logan, who will compete in the halfpipe competition next week, never really got going on her 24th birthday. She was a middling sixth during qualifying and her best trip during the finals came on her second run, when she appeared to be doing well only to scrape the ground after landing her penultimate jump.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacsonlast_img read more

Former exec agrees to plea

first_imgThe former vice president of Homestore Inc. pleaded guilty Thursday to one fraud charge and has agreed to testify against the company’s former chief executive at a trial later this month. Peter Tafeen, 36, former executive vice president of business development for the real estate listings firm, was originally charged with conspiring to violate securities laws, insider trading, creating false books and records and lying to Homestore’s accountants. In his plea agreement, Tafeen acknowledged he made $6.5 million by selling company stock between April and August 2001, when the company was reporting inflated revenue. He also agreed to testify against ex-CEO Stuart Wolff, whose trial is scheduled to begin March 28. Wolff and Tafeen still face civil charges filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission. To date, nine people have settled SEC charges and pleaded guilty to criminal charges in connection to the Homestore fraud. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tafeen started at Homestore in 1997 and left in November 2001. Homestore changed its name to Move Inc. The criminal and civil claims against both men were generated by a federal probe into what prosecutors said were a series of fraudulent transactions in 2001 designed to inflate Westlake Village-based Homestore’s online ad revenues. Prosecutors said Homestore would pay some vendors, including AOL, Cendant and others, extra for their products or services and the vendors would turn around and use the money to buy advertising from two media companies. The media companies, in turn, would buy advertising from Homestore, whose officials would improperly list the revenue on the company’s financial statements in order to exceed Wall Street analysts’ expectations. In his plea agreement, Tafeen acknowledged his role in arranging the so-called “round trip” financial transactions. His plea recommends he receive three to four years in prison. He will be sentenced Aug. 28. last_img read more


first_imgA convicted child killer and rapist has won permission to challenge the holding of an inquest into the death of a schoolgirl he was cleared of murdering.Robert Howard was granted leave to seek a judicial review of the coroner’s decision to examine the disappearance of Arlene Arkinson in 1994.His legal team claim the move involves an attempt to undermine the not guilty verdict returned against him. The body of Arlene, who was 15, has never been found.Howard’s lawyers argue that the inquest is being used as a way of reopening issues surrounding the case because the Arkinson family were unhappy with the outcome of the criminal trial.Arlene, from Castlederg, County Tyrone, vanished after attending a disco in Bundoran, County Donegal.Howard, 67, who formerly lived near her home, was charged with her murder but acquitted at trial in 2005.The jury did not know that by then he was already serving life for raping and killing 14-year-old Hanna Williams from Deptford, south London.Her body was found in a cement works in Northfleet, Kent, in March 2002.Howard’s lawyers, who unsuccessfully tried to have reporting restrictions imposed on their judicial review application, pointed out that the coroner’s stated purpose was to allow Arlene’s death to be registered.It was argued that this could be achieved through an alternative, High Court procedure with the Presumption of Death Act 2009 coming into effect.No confirmation was given on whether or not Howard would co-operate with any inquest.Counsel for the coroner contended that the test of necessity in holding an inquest had been met.The court also heard that issues about the admissibility of bad character evidence would play a significant part in the case.With the coroner said to be satisfied that Arlene is dead, it was set out that his obligation was to probe all the circumstances.The judge hearing the case, Mr Justice Treacy ruled on Tuesday that it should proceed to a full hearing.He said: “I’m going to grant leave (to apply for judicial review) and fix a date for hearing.“I’m satisfied there is an arguable case.”A one-day hearing of the issues in the High Court has been listed for November.ARLENE SUSPECT WINS RIGHT TO CHALLENGE HER INQUEST was last modified: September 20th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Arlene Arkinsonlast_img read more
