White Plains, N.Y. — An ex-IBM Corp. software developer has pleaded guilty in New York to economic espionage and theft-of-a-trade secret. Xu Jiaqiang (shoo jee-ah-chahng) entered the plea Friday in White Plains federal court. Prosecutors say in a release that the 31-year-old onetime Beijing, China, resident stole computer code to benefit the National Health and Planning Commission of the People´s Republic of China. Xu was first arrested in December 2015 in White Plains. Sentencing was set for Oct. 13. IBM has declined to comment on the case. Xu had been accused of stealing and converting

Just think how much money such companies save by hiring those cheap H1-B visa holders/foreign spies versus American programmers who need higher salaries to pay off their outlandish student loans.

No sympathy. This is what IBM gets for hiring a ´diversity´ person to meet a quota.

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

Some sorority sisters at the University of New Hampshire are being investigated after a video showing them singing along to a Kanye West song containing the n-word was posted on social media. The Snapchat video shows the members of Alpha Phi Sorority dancing at a party and singing the n-word as part of the lyrics to the song. It prompted other students to condemn the sorority’s “ignorant and insensitive” behavior.

South Korea has approved an $8m (£5.9m) aid package for North Korea, in a humanitarian gesture at odds with calls by Japan and the US for unwavering economic and diplomatic pressure on Pyongyang. South Korea’s unification ministry agreed to provide the funds, which will go towards programmes for infants and pregnant women, days after the UN security council agreed a further round of sanctions in response to the regime’s recent nuclear test. The ministry, which oversees cross-border relations, said humanitarian aid to impoverished North Korea should remain unaffected by rising political tensions on the

MARTA’s former senior director of operations pleaded guilty in federal court to his role in a misappropriation of funds scam, federal officials said Wednesday. Joseph J. Erves, 52, of Lithonia, who worked for MARTA since 1993, funneled the majority of $500,000 in taxpayer money for MARTA projects into his personal bank accounts, U.S. District Attorney John Horn said in a statement.

Erves and three co-defendants pleaded guilty to conspiracy after DEA agents busted them with nearly 2 kilos

Hillary Clinton said First Lady Melania Trump isn’t doing enough to tackle cyberbullying. “No, no and, look, I don´t think anybody is doing enough on cyberbullying,” Clinton told Mic when asked if she thought Trump had enforced her platform. Trump condemned cyberbullying in her first United Nations speech in New York City on Wednesday. “We must come together for the good of our children,” she said. “Therefore, we must teach each child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership, which can only be taught by example.”

The number of people streaming from the U.S. to Canada seeking asylum skyrocketed last month, according to the latest Canadian government statistics released Tuesday. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have intercepted some 13,211 persons attempting to sneak into Canada so far in 2017, including a staggering 5,712 in August alone. That’s up 82 percent compared to the 3,100 or so who were caught in July, and it continues a monthslong trend that local officials said has been fueled by both a change in U.S. policy, and what the Canadian government says is a misimpression of how easy it is to

Matthew ´Max´ Kennedy was all smiles as he walked out of a Cape Cod courtroom in a gray suit and Prada shoes after criminal charges were dismissed against him following his arrest last month for a booze-fueled brawl with local police. Prosecutors recommended to the court that disorderly conduct charges be dismissed if the son of Robert F Kennedy admitted he was ´responsible´ for a noise violation at a rental house near the Kennedy compound on August 20.

Queens-based tumor patient Sara Beltran Hernandez won a last-minute reprieve in her ongoing asylum case Monday and won’t be deported to El Salvador next week as planned, a panel of three federal judges ruled. The Fifth Circuit tribunal issued its stay of deportation just 10 days before Sara Beltran Hernandez was due at Jacob K. Javits Federal Building in Manhattan for “removal,” her lawyer said. (Snip) Beltran Hernandez first learned about her dangerous tumor when she began hemorrhaging and collapsed inside the Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Tex., last February.

This is the charter bus driver who killed two people and himself when he ran a red light while speeding in Queens — as seen in a mugshot from his 2015 bust for DUI. Before Raymond Mong, 49, plowed a Dahlia tour bus into a Q20 city bus packed with people in Flushing early Monday, he was arrested for drunkenly causing a three-car crash in Connecticut. Police records show Mong was behind the wheel of a 2002 Honda on April 10, 2015, when he caused the chain car crash on the Exit 51 off-ramp from southbound I-95 and fled.

If you had plans for the weekend, a Christian numerologist says you won’t get to them because the world is about to end. David Meade, a self-proclaimed “researcher,” is predicting that a series of apocalyptic events will begin on Sept. 23 and, “a major part of the world will not be the same.” According to Meade, the mysterious rogue planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is on a collision course with Earth, which will bring world-ending tsunamis and earthquakes. The numerologist claims the dates of recent events like the Great American Solar Eclipse and Hurricane Harvey’s flooding of Texas were all marked in the Bible.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,

In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
