WI school, police investigating photo of students posing in apparent Nazi salute

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BARABOO, Wis.) — A Wisconsin school district and local police are investigating a photo of a group of mostly white high school boys giving what appears to be the Nazi salute after it drew strong backlash on social media.The image of students in the Baraboo School District was posted on the @GoBaraboo parody account on Sunday.The tweet has since been taken down, but police and school officials promised to investigate. The photo in question is from last spring, according to District Superintendent Lori Mueller.“The school district is investigating this situation and is working with parents, staff and local authorities,” Mueller said in a statement to students and parents. “If the gesture is what it appears to be, the district will pursue any and all available and appropriate actions, including legal, to address the issue.”In a separate tweet posted on Monday, Mueller wrote, “The photo posted under the hashtag is not reflective of the educational values and beliefs of the School District of Baraboo.”Baraboo police also tweeted that they are assisting the district’s investigation since being made aware of a “controversial photo of a group of high school students.”The photo drew widespread disapproval, including from Wisconsin Gov.-elect Tony Evers and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in Poland.“This is why every single day we work hard to educate. We need to explain what is the danger of hateful ideology rising. Auschwitz with its gas chambers was at the very end of the long process of normalizing and accommodating hatred,” the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted.Not all the students in the photo participated in the gesture. Jordan Blue, a student in the top right of the photo whose arms remain at his sides, said in a statement that the photo was taken as students gathered at the Sauk County Courthouse for professional prom photos and that he “couldn’t leave the photo as it was taken within five seconds.”“The photographer told us to raise our hands kind of in a way, and I knew at that point that some my classmates are very immature,” he said in a separate interview. “So didn’t want to do that, and I saw what was happening and I felt so upset.”Jonathan Schieber, a senior who appears in the photo, told ABC News there was no discussion of any racist aspect to the photo when it was taken. It was only after the photo garnered social media attention over the weekend that he started to hear about it.Schieber, who is black, was singled out due to his race, though he had both arms at his side in the photo.“Somebody had made a meme or something, saying, ‘We even got the black kid to throw it up,’” Schieber told ABC News. “I couldn’t go nowhere without people being like, ‘Are you that kid from the picture?’ Everybody was sharing it, talking about racial profiling. I went to school on Monday and people were trying to take pictures with me — you’re going viral, all that stuff.”“I left school because I was not having it,” he added.Wheel Memories posted thumbnails of several photos from the shoot on its website in the spring, including the one in question. The photos have since been removed and the agency wrote on its site in a message that it blames “jerks” and online negativity.“It is too bad that there are those in society who can and do take the time to be jerks; knowingly and willingly to be jerks! The internet can be a wonderful tool but for some there is an overwhelming urge to destroy. The destruction may not be physical but instead it can be bullying that is intellectual or emotional,” the photo agency wrote on its website.“To anyone that was hurt I sincerely apologize,” the agency said. “To those who have harmed them, we as society often ignore them I have chosen not to do that. YOU ARE JERKS! Grow up! Be kind, Be gentle, Be civil!”ABC News has reached out to several other students in the photo who were identified through social media. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Luxe agency Quintessentially Estates’ parent company turns to US investor for cash

first_imgThe parent company of luxe estate agency Quintessentially Estates has turned to its chief investor in the US keep it going as the Covid pandemic batters the luxury services market.Quintessential UK Ltd, which is the umbrella companies for a raft of firms offering services to the super rich including chauffeur, personal shopping, concierge and property management, has turned to US shareholder World Fuel Services for a loan, its Companies House files reveal.These also reveal that its accounts are overdue by nearly seven months.Quintessentially, which is operated via a franchise model overseas, was founded by Conservative party co-chairman Ben Elliott, who is also nephew of Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.Its latest accounts show the company lost £3.14 million during the financial year ending 30th April 2018, up from £2.8 million the year before, created largely by writing off bad debts.Elliott plays a leading role in fundraising for the Conservative party and was behind the much reported dinner where Richard Desmond met Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick. During the dinner the two are alleged to have discussed his redevelopment of the Westferry Printworks in Canary Wharf, which Jenrick later helped to steer through local planning difficulties.Quintessentially Estates Ltd is headed up by CEO Penny Mosgrove (left) and, as well as a branch in London, has outposts in Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Miami and Germany.Its accounts are also overdue, by six months, and at one point in April this year the company faced compulsory strike-off action from Companies House, which was later rescinded.Two years ago, as we reported, Quintessentially opened a hybrid property management-cum sales branch in central London.duchess of cornwall Ben Elliott Penny Mosgrove Quintessentially Estates August 26, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

It sold at £361,000.Andrew Binstock said, “We had some exceptional results this time. Our sellers love the fact that some lots went for higher prices than comparable properties being sold by estate agents.

NHS chief criticises Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP lifestyle brand at Oxford event

first_imgGwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand Goop has been criticised by Sir Simon Stevens, chief executive of the NHS, for perpetuating “myths and misinformation” that pose a risk to public health. Stevens referred to this controversial product in his discussion of the dangers posed by the company, also mentioning the “vampire facials” and a “psychic vampire repellant” tested by the so-called ‘Goopers’ in the Netflix series. He noted that the company’s promotion of colonic irrigation, defined by the brand on their website as “essentially a way to hydrate and irrigate your colon,” was directly opposed to advice from the NHS that “there is no scientific evidence to suggest there are any health benefits associated with colonic irrigation.” He also criticised the brand’s $135 Coffee Enema kit, which is listed online along with the description: “if you wish to use a home system and you know what you are doing.” During the event, Stevens hit out against those who spread misinformation, calling them “quacks, charlatans and cranks,” and warning of the dangers of false information regarding health that can be easily disseminated online and in the media. Specifically, he directed his criticisms at Goop, the lifestyle and wellness brand whose products he referred to as “too good to be true.” Goop, the brand launched by Paltrow in 2008 with the aim to “start hard conversations, crack open taboos, and look for connection and resonance everywhere we can find it,” as stated on their website, has been subject to media scrutiny over the past few months, following the sale of controversial products such a candle named ‘This Smells Like My Vagina’ and the release of a Netflix series, ‘The Goop Lab’, in which the Goop team try out the company’s various treatments. The beginning of each episode contains the disclaimer: “the following series is designed to entertain and inform – not provide medical advice.” In September 2018, the company was fined $145,000 in civil penalties for making “unsubstantiated” marketing claims surrounding a $66 jade egg meant to “increase sexual energy and pleasure” – an assertion that was refuted by gynaecologists around the world. The outcome of the lawsuit means the brand is no longer able to make claims about their products that are unsubstantiated by medical research, although the products are still allowed to be sold. Along with Goop, Stevens also criticized the ‘anti-vax’ movement in his warnings against fake news, attributing the steep rise in cases of mumps to the ‘widespread disinformation’ being spread about vaccinations online.center_img A spokeswoman from Goop said: “Goop takes efficacy and product claims very seriously. With the editorial and commercial aspects of our business, we sometimes approach different topics from different points of view. “On the editorial side, we are transparent when we cover emerging topics that may be unsupported by science or may be in early stages of review. When products are available for retail sale, we have a robust legal and compliance team that works closely with our science and research group to vet product claims.” The comments were made last Thursday at an event entitled ‘An Oxford Conversation: The impact of fake news on our lives’, during which Stevens joined Damian Collins MP and BBC Radio 4 presenter Sarah Montague for a panel discussion on the phenomenon of fake news and how this problem might be best addressed by governments and technology companies alike. “We are proud of our procedures and internal protocols and we are constantly evolving to ensure our approach is best in class. We applaud the important work that NHS does, and often take our cues from the UK standard. For example, in the case of chemical sunscreens that the NHS cited in their speech, the US bans only 11 personal care ingredients while over 1,000 are banned in the UK. It’s for that reason we recommend non-toxic sunscreens.” last_img read more
