Woman stole $24000 of lingerie from Victoria's Secret store, police say

Cynthia Roman (Paramus Police via the Paramus Daily Voice) Police have charged a Pennsylvania woman for allegedly stealing $24,000 worth of lingerie from Victoria s Secret in Westfield Garden State Plaza during nine different trips to the Paramus mall. Paramus Police charged Cynthia Roman, 39, of Tobyhanna, PA with nine counts of theft for taking clothing from displays around the store beginning in August, according to a report on 1 . Paramus Deputy Police Chief Robert Guidetti told the Paramus Daily Voice 2 that detectives Norman Gin and Christopher Zuck worked the case and in January developed Roman as a suspect after sharing her description with mall security guards and store staff.

The description was shared with loss prevention officers throughout the 326-store shopping center. Victoria Secret employees spotted Roman Wednesday and contacted the detectives, Guidetti told the Daily Voice. Roman is being held on $75,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, according to police.

Let's crunch some numbers and take a look at that billion dollar BPS …

The very minute my Christmas vacation started, and I mean on the train on the ride home, I developed a fever. So while my family was out being merry and bright, I was home, bedridden. This was very sad so I decided to take the opportunity to crunch some numbers.

But please remember, this blog post was written in a feverish haze. One thing I ve been hearing a lot lately, from disparate but not disconnected places, is about the billion dollar BPS budget. A billion dollars!

A billion dollars! BPS is costing the city a billion dollars! Now granted, a billion is a big number.

Really big. But what I wanted to know, is it an unreasonable number. One thing that I noticed is that people who like to bring up the billion dollar budget like to compare Boston to other states, places like Florida or Alabama, where they are admittedly spending far less on education.

I wonder how the parents and students in these states feel about the per pupil spending of their local school districts. Do they think they are being adequately funded? Some of that can be explained by differences in the cost of living.

But also, budgets are statements of values. And Massachusetts has valued and invested in education. And it shows.

Here is Massachusetts performance compared to other states in the most recent NAEP tests. Even when you adjust for demographics, we come out on top. This is important, because my fear is that with the governor s rush to sell off commonly held schools to private interests, we are abandoning our values.

I thought it would be interesting to judge Boston not by the standards of other states but by our own standards. How does Boston s education spending compare to the other cities and towns in the Commonwealth? As far as per pupil spending goes, the latest figures from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education s website is in 2014.

They list BPS as spending $18,318 per pupil. That figure wasn t an outlier at all. In fact, 43 cities and towns spend more per pupil including poorer communities like Lawrence ($19, 672 ) and Lowell ($18,816 ).

The real outlier was Provincetown. That gay little outpost spends a whopping $30,626 per student. I placed all of the cities and towns on a chart so you can see where Boston lands next to other places in Massachusetts.

I m not particularly sure that this chart is helpful but have at it. Now, the other kvetching I hear a lot is about how much of Boston s budget BPS takes up. I ve heard 40% but I couldn t find it sourced, and I can t remember who told me that number.

It was probably some whining city councilor. At any rate, I decided to compare Boston to other municipalities to see if BPS is taking up a larger percentage of the budget than what is reasonable. And this is what I learned.

Far from it. The state average for municipalities education allotment of the budget is 53% . Most cities and towns are spending a far greater percentage of their entire budget on their school system.

Now I need to mention it was far more difficult to find this data and the only place that had it was the Pioneer Institute when they compiled it back in 2011. I know we don t see eye to eye on anything, Pioneer, but thank you for doing that. In 2011, BPS was taking up 33.5 percent of the Boston budget compared to the 53% average of the state.

There were 4 towns that spent over 70% of their budget on their schools. BPS was on the low end of the spectrum. In fact, there were only 14 cities and towns that spent a smaller percentage of their town s budget on their school system.

Interestingly, the smallest percentage goes to Provincetown at 16% of its budget. How can that be? They have all of 120 lucky students in their well funded school system.

The governor s home town of Swampscott pays 47.4% of its budget to its school system. And the secretary of education s town of Milton pays 51% of its budget to the Milton school system. I think the question isn t whether or not BPS is spending too much money.

I think the question is why do politicians not value Boston students? Because that is what they are telling us when they talk about the billion dollar BPS budget in awed tones. What is Boston spending its money on instead?

Well, if I wanted to be a brat, I might point out that our city councilors are the highest paid city councilors in the entire state. 1 Let s start there. Update: A helpful person who I assume wants to remain anonymous sent me a cite for the 40% of Boston s budget. This is an interesting document.

It is BPS FY17 Financial Context and Planning. It attributes the growth in the percentage of Boston s budget to stagnant Chapter 70 revenue (money that the state gives to BPS) and the state not fulfilling its charter school reimbursement obligations: 2 Here is a table of the percentages paid by municipal budgets for education: Provincetown 16.1 Tyringham 19 Athol 24.2 Mt Washington 26.2 Wellfleet 27.3 Truro 27.8 Chatham 29.3 Cambridge 29.5 Monroe 30.4 Orleans 31 Harwich 31.5 Tolland 31.6 Chilmark 32.5 Monterey 33.4 Boston 33.5 Nahant 33.5 Somerville 33.6 Edgartown 33.8 Royalston 34.2 Quincy 34.4 Eastham 35.6 Stockbridge 35.6 Dennis 36.4 Greenfield 36.4 Gloucester 36.8 Watertown 36.8 Adams 36.9 Avon 36.9 Oak Bluffs 38.4 Hull 39.6 Northampton 39.9 Everett 40.6 Melrose 40.6 Rowe 40.6 Medford 41.2 Egremont 41.3 Falmouth 41.3 Dedham 41.4 Malden 41.6 Taunton 41.6 Brookline 41.8 Mashpee 41.8 Saugus 42 Waltham 42 Nantucket 42.1 North Adams 42.2 Norwood 42.5 Pittsfield 42.7 Stoneham 42.8 Danvers 43.3 Newburyport 43.5 Rockport 43.5 Tisbury 43.6 W.

Terror couple behind bomb plot were “dangerous individuals” » The …

A top cop has said that the couple behind a plot to bomb a London shopping centre were dangerous individuals who represented a genuine threat . Mohammed Rehman and Sana Ahmed Khan were found guilty of preparing for acts of terrorism in the UK by buying chemicals online in order to make explosives for a martyrdom attack. The husband and wife were convicted of the charge during a hearing at the Old Bailey on Wednesday, December 29.

Rehman was found guilty on two counts of preparing for acts of terrorism, while Khan was found guilty on one count of preparing for acts of terrorism. Rehman, 25, from Radstock Road in Reading and Khan, 24 from Hutton Close in Earley, Wokingham plotted together after becoming radicalised following a secret marriage in October 2013. They were arrested in May 2015 by officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit in a joint operation with the South East Counter Terrorism Unit.

During the trial, the jury heard how Khan financed the entire scheme, funding purchases by taking out numerous loans and transferring cash into Rehman s bank account. As well as buying bomb making equipment Rehman studied how to make explosives online, researched Islamic State and looked up details of one of the 7/7 London bombers. During a search of his home after his arrest detectives found a stockpile of chemicals, bomb making paraphernalia and a hunting knife.

Police also retrieved a video from Khan s phone after her arrest which showed Rehman carrying out a test explosion in his back garden in November 2014. One of the things that led officers to Rehman was his prolific activity on Twitter, which included extremist rhetoric alongside images of homemade devices and instructional material. In one tweet, on 12 May 2015, he wrote: Westfield shopping centre or London underground?

Any advice would be appreciated greatly. Text messages between the couple were uncovered showing discussions about buying chemicals, while emails revealed Rehman had also sent Islamic State related video clips to Khan. Assistant Chief Constable Laura Nicholson, head of the South East Counter Terrorism Unit and Regional Organised Crime Unit, said: These were dangerous individuals who represented a genuine threat but through counter-terrorism policing we were able to intercept them before they could carry out their plans.

It is clear that Rehman and Khan shared a radical and violent extremist ideology. They actively accessed extremist material on the internet and used social media to develop and share their views as they prepared acts of terrorism. The removal of access to terrorist and violent extremist material on the internet is a critical element in preventing radicalisation and terrorist atrocities and we will continue to work with partners to remove such material whenever it is discovered.

We also rely on the community to help us effectively identify and deal with radicalisation and such threats. Family members are often the first to notice changes in the behaviour of their loved ones be they sons, daughters, siblings or friends. And I would urge families and communities to be alert to the signs; any concerning changes in behaviour and to raise their concerns early, before it s too late.

Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale, Counter Terrorism lead for the West Midlands, said: Officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit worked closely with our colleagues at the South East Counter Terrorism Unit throughout this investigation and we are pleased with the result at court today. Whilst we remain concerned about people travelling to Syria and the risk they pose should they return to the UK, we also consider the threat posed by UK-based individuals and groups who have never travelled or intended to do so. There s no doubt Mohammed Rehman and Sana Khan were two such people and that the internet played a significant part in their radicalisation.

Through proactive counter-terrorism policing, we were able to prevent them from causing any harm and we will continue, as part of a network across the country, to work tirelessly to spot extremist content online, so we can act early to keep the public safe. Anyone who knows of someone who may be potentially vulnerable to being drawn into terrorist-related activity, including travelling abroad to conflict zones should contact local police for advice and support on 101.

Couple found guilty of planning terrorist attack » The Wokingham …

A woman from Earley and her Reading-based husband have been found guilty of plotting a terror attack. The jury delivered their verdict today, Tuesday, December 29. Sana Ahmed Khan, 24, of Hutton Close, Earley, and her husband Mohammed Rehman, 25, of Radstock Road, Reading, both denied the charges, with Rehman denying a second charge of possession of articles for terrorist purposes.

They had previously heard how Mr Rehman, of Radstock Road in Newtown, Reading, has taken to social media to discuss targeting both London Underground and the Westfield Shopping Centre. He also filmed a test explosion in his back garden using chemicals which had been bought by Ms Khan. The footage was shown to the jury during the trial.

Neither Rehman or Khan gave evidence during the four-week trial, but Rehman s police interview, in which he claimed he had acquired the chemicals for excitement , was played to the jury in full. In a raid on his family home in May, police found 10kg of Urea Nitrate explosives in Rehman s bedroom. They also uncovered a Royal Flush of terrorist videos and documents, including the martyrdom video of 7/7 bomber Shehzad Tanweer, Al Qaeda propaganda magazines, and videos produced by Islamic State leaders.

His wife was accused of funding his efforts to build a bomb.

Skimm’d over sushi and politics QUOTE OF THE DAY “I find you very screwable” — Barbara Walters 1 beating around the bush with Bradley Cooper. Get it, Babs. THE STORY At their fifth debate last night, GOP candidates spread hope and good holiday cheer over talks about terrorism and national security crises.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW? That this was the first debate since the terror attacks in Paris 2 , and this month’s shooting in San Bernardino, CA 3 . And that it kept viewers riveted over things like “metadata.” Other table topics included how much the US gov.

should be able to spy 4 on American citizens, what to do with Syrian refugees 5 , and how to generally deal with the hot mess that is ISIS. BREAK IT DOWN. Gov.

John Kasich (OH)… as in the one whose daughter just wants everyone to get along. He wants to know why 6 global leaders just went to Paris to talk about climate change when they should have been figuring out how to take down ISIS.

Carly Fiorina… as in the one who’s “been called every B-word in the book 7 .” She once stopped a truck full of equipment for the NSA — because why not? — and thinks Silicon Valley 8 would help the US gov. with cyber security if the gov.

says “please” and “thank you.” Sen. Marco Rubio (FL)… as in the one who thinks Americans who join ISIS don’t need to be read their Miranda rights. 9 He questioned why Cruz once voted to rein in the NSA. 10 But he doesn’t want to talk about it too much because…Shhh classified.

Dr. Ben Carson… as in the one who started with a moment of silence 11 .

And kept it going all night. After complaining about not getting enough time, he got asked whether he’d be “OK with the deaths of thousands of innocent children and civilians” 12 in the fight against ISIS. It got awkward.

Donald Trump… as in the one who wants to penetrate…the Internet 13 . In between telling Bush that his campaign is a massive fail 14 , Trump also had a bone to pick with CNN moderators 15 , who he said were too busy pitting him, Bush, and everyone else against each other.

Sen. Ted Cruz (TX)… as in the one who got put in timeout after talking out of turn. 16 He really likes calling ISIS ‘the bad guys,’ and says the moderate rebels the US is trying to arm in the Mideast are “purple unicorns.” 17 Which apparently don’t exist.

Dreams, crushed. Fmr. Gov.

Jeb Bush (FL) …as in the one who finally stood up to the Trump in the room 18 . He says Trump can’t just insult his way into the White House, and the US needs “serious” leadership. Gov.

Chris Christie (NJ)… as in the one who wants to remind you that the world is real scary right now. And he thinks President Obama is a “feckless weakling” 19 for his strategy against ISIS.

He wants a no-fly zone over Syria, and thinks the president should be someone who used to be a federal prosecutor. PS: He used to be a federal prosecutor. Sen.

Rand Paul (KY)… as in the one who thinks Trump’s proposal to crush ISIS by killing their family members is a little thing called ‘unconstitutional.’ 20 He also thinks Christie’s proposal for a no-fly zone in Syria would create World War III 21 . Ain’t nobody got time for that.

theSKIMM Welcome to what may be the biggest issue of this election: national security. Last night was the last GOP debate this year, and the one that felt the most like a job interview. Since ‘keep me safe’ is high up on the list of things everyone cares about.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT… LA. Yesterday, public schools there were closed 22 following a “credible threat.” Officials later said ‘false alarm,’ it appeared to be a hoax.

With everyone on edge following the Paris attacks last month and the San Bernardino shootings just two weeks ago, LA officials didn’t respond kindly to getting a threatening email from someone claiming to be an extremist who planned to target schools with explosives. Cue schools closing. NYC officials said they got a similar email, but decided it was a hoax and kept schools open.

There’s an investigation looking into where the threat came from. WHAT TO SAY WHEN EVERYONE’S GETTING SICK AT WORK… Something in the water?

There is in Flint, Michigan. Earlier this week, the mayor there declared a state of emergency 23 to bring attention to the city’s water problems. Last year, Flint left the Detroit water system to save some cash.

The city started taking water from the Flint River, and said the move would be temporary. But people started saying their water looked and smelled weird. Not good.

And then children’s blood tests started showing elevated levels of lead. Really not good. Especially because lead can affect brain development and cause behavioral changes.

A few months ago, the city said ‘our bad,’ and switched back to the Detroit water system. But some people are saying ‘too late,’ the damage is done. The mayor’s hoping a state of emergency will mean federal help.


Yesterday, Saudi Arabia announced it’s forming a squad of mostly Muslim countries 24 to fight against terrorism. The coalition includes places like Egypt, Qatar, the UAE, Turkey, Malaysia, and Pakistan. Their goal: An “Islamic military alliance” to hate on terrorists.

They’d also really like to make sure everyone knows that all Muslims are not extremists, and that they want ISIS gone just as much as everyone else. Who’s not part of Saudi Arabia’s #squadgoals? Iran.

That’s because Saudi Arabia and Iran top powers in the Mideast like each other as much as you like getting socks for Christmas. And they have very different ideas 25 for how things like the Syrian Civil War should end up. This new coalition is a big step in getting Arab countries more involved in the US-led fight against terror, especially ISIS.

Go team. WHAT TO SAY TO YOUR NIECE WHO JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT SANTA It’s OK. The Nazi gold train 26 isn’t real either.

For decades, legend’s had it that at the end of WWII, a Nazi train carrying stolen art and gold disappeared into a tunnel system in Poland. Then, earlier this year, two “hobbyist treasure hunters” said the Nazi train was real and that they knew where it was. After almost four months of some serious investigating, a team of scientists are saying ‘yeah, no.’ But the hobbyists aren’t giving up.

They say it’s definitely there and you should believe the hype. K. WHAT TO SAY TO YOUR FRIEND FROM HIGH SCHOOL…

Prominent Research Physician Points to Cures As Key to Holding …

WESTFIELD, N.J., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ Stephen L. DeFelice, M.D., Founder and Chairman of FIM, The Foundation for Innovation in Medicine, released a new video criticizing mainstream health care cost projections of Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare, among others, because they omit the discovery of cures. He cites a boom in technology, including gene modification and new organ growth as inevitable in curing many of our major costly diseases. (To view the video and additional information visit or the video only here: 1 The Alzheimer s Association projects that the cost of managing this life stealing disease over the next 40 years is 20 trillion dollars, more than the national debt.

Current annual costs for diabetic care, in another example, are about $250 billion, which will rise over time approaching the Alzheimer s level over the next 40 years, the Doctor points out. He cites formidable problems blocking discovery of cures under our current system. When was the last cure?

he questions, and finds it puzzling that few ever ask this question. In his book, Drug Discovery: The Pending Crisis (1972) he warned of a huge, unrecognized barrier effectively preventing the discovery of cures. Our present system of drug discovery is almost designed not to cure the great diseases that confront us.

I have no doubt they ll be cured in the future, but many must wait. Discovery of new therapies can only happen if they are tested in patients in clinical studies, but we have made testing and research so costly and risky that promising new therapies remain in the shadows. But Dr.

DeFelice says we have a cultural blind spot to the critical role of clinical research and, instead, view it with suspicion. He proposes that doctor-physician patients have the right to be much freer to volunteer for clinical studies than non-doctors. He later coined the term Doctornauts, to describe their role and subsequently proposed the Doctornaut Act to Congress, which grants the doctors this right.

Dr. DeFelice sees encouraging news as Congress recognizes the importance of clinical research s role in medical discovery. He collaborated with then Senate Majority Leader, and physician, Bill Frist, who circulated a discussion draft of the Act which is posted on the FIM website (see below).

Recently, Congress, largely supported by Senator Tom Harkin, agreed to fund the Translational Science initiative which is based on the need to help doctor researchers conduct clinical studies. This initiative was sparked by two directors of the NIH, Drs. Elias Zerhouni, the former director and Francis Collins, the current one.

Any effective way to diminish the barriers to clinical research will lead to cures in the short term and to dramatically reduced health costs, the Doctor points out. And the Doctornaut Act can make that happen much sooner, he says. Dr.

DeFelice is the physician who brought the orphan drug carnitine into the United States and conducted the first clinical trials on it.
