|‘World’s heaviest woman’ dies months after starting weight-loss questWPMT / 19 min. ago more|
MUMBAI, India – A woman thought to be the world’s heaviest died Monday, roughly eight months after being removed from her home in Egypt and taken to Mumbai via cargo plane. Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, 37, was said to originally weigh some 1,100 pounds before undergoing bariatric surgery in India, reports the BBC, which cites local media reports that claimed she had dropped 660 pounds as a result (her family disputed this in the midst of a dustup with the Indian doctors who originally treated her). A statement from the Abu Dhabi hospital where she has been receiving care since May described her cause of death as being from weight-related conditions including heart disease and kidney dysfunction, reports the Times of India. Abd El Aty’s family said that prior to her leaving for treatment in Mumbai in February, she hadn’t left her home in 25 years, and that her extreme weight had forced her to crawl instead of walk by age 11. It wasn’t an easy endeavor to transport Abd El Aty to India, a trip that cost around $125,000 and required the aforementioned cargo plane and a custom-modified truck, which she was lowered into by crane. Her UAE doctors tell the National, “Her diet was right, and nothing could have been done differently—so we were all very surprised when she started to go downhill over the previous three to four days.” Al Arabiya notes she turned 37 earlier this month and was permitted to eat ice cream as part of the celebration.

|Secret iOS 11 features you’re probably not usingWPMT / 42 min. ago more|
If you’re still dismissing pop-ups from apps asking for reviews, or writing your Wi-FI password on a Post-It note, you’re not living your best life. In addition to a new design and big features like augmented reality support, Apple has added a number of solid smaller changes and settings options to iOS 11, the latest mobile software for iPhones and iPads. From recording your FaceTime calls to silently communicating with Siri, here are some hidden iOS features worth trying: 1. Add the buttons you want to control center This is one of the best changes in iOS 11. You can customize what shortcuts appear in the new and improved Control Center by going into Settings. Add shortcut buttons for things like screen recording, voice memos, and the magnifier tool. 2. Share your complicated Wi-Fi password A friend comes over for tea and wants to ‘Gram your delicious homemade cookies. iOS 11 has a quick way to share your password. When someone is using the same Wi-Fi network your phone is on, you’ll get a notification. By tapping “send password,” they can hop on the network without having to manually enter complicated passwords, like “Sup3rs3cr3tp@$$1984.” This only works with other devices running iOS 11 or macOS High Sierra — and when Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned on. 3. Use the camera to scan QR Codes It’s a bit late to the party, but Apple has added QR support to its mobile software. Turn on the camera, point it at any QR code and a pop-up notification will offer to open it in Safari. QR codes have been around for years and are mostly used for marketing purposes — or they have specific uses inside third-party apps like Snapchat. 4. Stop apps from begging for reviews If you dislike the pop-up windows from apps constantly asking you to leave a review, you can banish them forever. Go to Settings, followed by iTunes & App Store. Finally, tap the switch for In-App Ratings & Reviews. 5. Take Live Photos of video calls You’re on a FaceTime call with your grandparents and they do something adorable, like smooch. Now you can relive that moment in a proprietary image format invented by Apple. To take a Live Photo of someone during a FaceTime call, you’ll need to press the white button in the bottom left corner of the screen. Both participants need to have iOS 11 running and Live Photos turned on for it to work. The other person will get a notification that they’ve been Live Photo-ed. You can prevent someone from taking Live Photos of you by turning of the option in FaceTime’s settings. However, they can still use screen recording during a call (sans audio) and you won’t be notified. 6. Type questions for Siri and try a makeshift Dark Mode This new accessibility feature, intended for people who aren’t able to speak to Siri, lets you type your questions and requests instead. But if you turn it on, Siri will no longer work with spoken requests. Other new accessibility features include Smart Invert, which swaps colors so backgrounds get darker and text lighter, while leaving elements like images untouched. It can be used as a makeshift “Dark Mode,” making your screen easier on the eyes. Meanwhile, a new image scanning feature means iOS 11 can now detect text in an image and read it out loud. It will also do some basic image recognition to describe what’s in an image. 7. Save webpages as PDFs (and mark them up!) Sometimes you want to share an article but with your incredibly important thoughts scribbled on top. Maybe with arrows for emphasis. In Safari, you can select the share button at the bottom of the screen and scroll to the right until you find the Create PDF option. The next screen will show a tiny marker icon in the top right corner. Tap and start annotating. 8. Start writing notes on an iPad When inspiration hits, you don’t want to lose time unlocking your iPad and opening the Notes app. If you tap the Apple Pencil on the iPad’s lock screen, you can start writing a note right away. It’s one of a number of tweaks meant to make note-taking easier on the iPad, including making handwritten words searchable as if you had typed them. 9. Doodle on screenshots Now when you take a screenshot (Power button + Home button), it will appear as a thumbnail in the bottom corner of your screen. Tap to start marking it up and then send it off to a friend or save it to your camera roll. 10. Make Live Photos do more If you swipe up on a Live Photo, a new menu appears with options to add some pretty routine effects. Loop turns it into, well, a loop. Bounce reverses it mid shot, and Long Exposure uses the frames captures to create a photo that looks like it had a slow shutter speed. As long as you’re playing with pictures, check out the updated photo filters. 11. Silly Messages Tricks In the last big iOS update, Apple added a ton of features to Messages like stickers and balloons. It’s still tinkering with the format and has added a line of apps along the bottom of messages. You can tap around to see which of your existing apps have Messages stickers and integrations. There are also two new animation effects, spotlight and echo. Spotlight darkens everything but puts a bright light on your latest text. Echo covers the screen in floating copies or your message.
|Virginia man who did not disclose HIV status to sex partners found deadWPMT / 55 min. ago more|
BALTIMORE – A Virginia man previously convicted of reckless endangerment for not disclosing his positive HIV status to his sexual partners, has died, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore, Maryland. Daniel Cleaves (Montgomery County Police Dept.) Daniel Cleaves was found dead at about 2 p.m. on September 18 after officers were called to the 2400 block of West Lexington Street, according to a Baltimore Police spokesperson. “Once at the location, officers located an adult male laying unresponsive. The male had no signs of physical trauma,” a Baltimore Police spokesperson said. “The victim was pronounced deceased at the location.” While the cause of death remains under investigation, detectives said it appeared Cleaves died of a drug overdose, the police spokesperson said. “This case is still labeled as ‘Questionable Death,'” she added. In 2015, Cleaves was convicted and sentenced to 18 months behind bars for failing to disclose his HIV status to sexual partners in Maryland. He was accused of similar behavior in Henrico, Virginia, but that charge was dismissed due to a one-year statute of limitations on misdemeanors.
|PA DHS Secretary testifies on HealthcareWPMT / 1 h. 4 min. ago more|
Wolf Administration Testifies on the Impact to Pennsylvania of the Proposed Affordable Care Act Repeal and Replacement Proposal could lead to a $15-30B loss in Pennsylvania in the next decade. Harrisburg, PA – Today, on behalf of Governor Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) Acting Secretary Teresa Miller testified before the United State Senate Finance Committee on the impact of the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson Proposal. The proposal is the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that has benefitted more than 1.1 million Pennsylvanians. “The proposal would make draconian cuts to federal health care funding and force governors across the country to make the most gut-wrenching decisions they could possibly face,” said Miller. “Governor Wolf and I share the goal of ensuring that Pennsylvanians have access to affordable, high quality health care services so that they can lead healthy and productive lives. I’m proud to say that the commonwealth has been diligently working toward that goal, and has made significant progress thanks in large part to the ACA.” Prior to implementation of the ACA, Pennsylvania’s uninsured rate was more than 10 percent. Today, the commonwealth’s uninsured rate is 5.6 percent; the lowest it has ever been. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the proposed health care bill includes a block grant that would lead Pennsylvania to lose billions of dollars in federal funding; 34 other states would also see reduced funding. Pennsylvania would lose between $15 – $30 billion in federal funding over the next decade. Additional key provisions of the proposal would: • Repeal the ACA Medicaid expansion and individual insurance market subsidies—including premium tax credits, cost-sharing reductions, and the basic health program—as of 2020. • Convert federal funding for the traditional Medicaid program to per capita caps that would limit the amount of federal funds regardless of expenditures. • Repeal the penalties under the ACA’s individual and employer mandates and allow states to waive benefit requirements and community rating in the individual and small group markets. • Fundamentally alter the current federal approach to financing health coverage for more than 80 million Americans who have coverage through the ACA or through the traditional Medicaid program. The block grant program would replace the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and insurance subsidies, for years 2020-2026 and replace the current federal funding formula with a fixed amount regardless of future growth in the program. States would have to use the fixed amount of funding and make the tough decision of whether to cover the cost of high-risk patients, assist individuals with premiums and cost-sharing, pay directly for health care services, or provide health care coverage to a limited extent to people eligible for Medicaid expansion. “I truly believe states are in a better position to make decisions impacting our residents,” said Miller. “We know our markets better and we are more nimble and able to respond to issues impacting our consumers. When we hear that you want to give us more flexibility as states, we are interested in hearing more. However, as it stands, I don’t believe that this flexibility exists.” The proposal’s sponsors say that they want to turn power over to states to create their own health care system, and claim to do so by creating a block grant that levels the playing field between Medicaid expansion and non-expansion states. This creates an insurmountable burden on states that want to maintain their current coverage levels, let alone expand them. For some states, this may be an opportunity to craft a health care system as they see fit, but given how federal funding is projected to decrease over time compared to funding levels if the proposal weren’t enacted and the fiscal cliff if the block grant funding ends after 2026, this flexibility is illusory. “At some point, all states will be left to fill sizable gaps in their state budgets, and we will likely see legislative crises to make up the funding loss,” said Miller. “States will be forced to either enact significant tax increases, or impose benefit reductions, or both. Is that really the flexibility we need?” Medicaid is critical to Pennsylvania and serves 2.8 million people, or 22 percent of the commonwealth’s population. This includes 1.2 million children, nearly 250,000 seniors, 503,000 individuals with a disability, 565,000 individuals who receive outpatient mental health services, and 215,000 individuals relying on substance use disorder treatment. In 2015, Medicaid paid for over 58,000 births in the commonwealth – nearly 40 percent of Pennsylvania’s total births. When Governor Wolf expanded Medicaid in the commonwealth more than 710,000 people gained access to health care coverage. “It’s unfortunate that Congress is again considering rushing through a major reform of our health care system, rather than pursuing a bipartisan, consensus-driven effort to enact targeted reforms to stabilize our markets and ensure the ACA works better for everyone going forward,” said Miller. “On behalf of Pennsylvanians, on behalf of our children, seniors, and individuals with disabilities – our most vulnerable populations – I implore the Senate to return to the bipartisan process that they were engaging in earlier this month, and craft a compromise bill to stabilize the individual market and improve our current system.” For more information on HealthChoices, visit http://www.HealthChoices.pa.gov.

|Teen who allegedly killed mom’s ex-boyfriend to stop beating won’t be indictedWPMT / 1 h. 32 min. ago more|
NEW YORK — A grand jury declined to indict a New York City teen accused in the choking death of his mother’s abusive ex-boyfriend, court officials said Monday. Luis Moux, 18, was charged with manslaughter in August after he allegedly choked his mother’s ex-boyfriend to death, police said, after the teen spotted Stanley Washington beating his mother inside their Bronx apartment. The 43-year-old ex-boyfriend showed up at the University Avenue apartment around 4:30 a.m. to talk to the mother and allegedly attacked the 37-year-old woman, police told WPIX. Moux heard what was happening and rushed out of his bedroom, pulling Washington off of his mother, police said. He allegedly put Washington in a chokehold, killing him. Police sources said the mother, who had briefly passed out, woke up to the sight of her son standing over her ex-boyfriend. Washington had 26 prior arrests, police sources said. Two of them were for instances of domestic violence against Moux’s mother.
|Alejandro Villanueva apologizes for throwing Steeler teammates ‘under the bus’WPMT / 1 h. 36 min. ago more|
PITTSBURGH – The only member of the Pittsburgh Steelers to take the field for the anthem now says he regrets his actions and apologized to his teammates and coach Monday. Alejandro Villanueva, a Steelers lineman and U.S. Army veteran, was pictured standing alone before Sunday’s game during the national anthem while the rest of the team refused to take the field in protest. His stand has made his jersey one of the top sellers in the NFL. “Unfortunately I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally,” Villanueva said in a press conference Monday. “Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself I feel embarrassed.” The team had apparently agreed Saturday evening to stay in the tunnel, but Villanueva made a last-minute decision Sunday to get a look at the flag, telling only the team leaders. However, when the anthem started with him alone, outside the tunnel, he said it would have “looked extremely bad” to walk back to his teammates, according to ESPN. He apologized for breaking ranks without giving others the opportunity to join him. “When everybody sees a picture of me standing by myself, everybody thinks the team and the Steelers are not behind me, and that’s absolutely wrong,” Villanueva said. “The entire team would have been out there with me, even the ones who wanted to take a knee would have been there with me.” Villanueva said his team would have joined him if they had known about the “extreme circumstances” he was going through before the game. Villanueva said he had soldiers and wounded veterans texting him to make sure he would take the field. He said the fact that they were about to play at Soldier Field also influenced him. According to WPXI, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and defensive lineman Cam Heyward wanted to go with him in solidarity, but were blocked by congestion in the tunnel before the anthem. Villanueva confirmed that report Monday, according to the station. Villanueva, who has been celebrated widely by those who aren’t in favor of NFL players kneeling in protest, said he feels bad that his action broke an appearance of unity among the Steelers. “I’ve made the Steelers look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only,” Villanueva said. He also apologized to coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the team.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– A former Lyft driver accused of raping an Indiana woman was arrested Friday in Indianapolis, according to the Lebanon Reporter. Nour Baber Mahmoud Albadri, 22, has been charged with rape, criminal confinement and two counts of sexual battery. The incident occurred early in the morning on Sept. 16. Court documents obtained by the Reporter say Albadri was transporting a 23-year-old woman when he pulled his vehicle over just outside of Zionsville and allegedly raped her. The victim was able to capture part of the incident on her cellphone, according to the Reporter. After the rape, Albadri then allegedly drove the woman back to her home in Zionsville. Albadri was taken to the Boone County Jail after his arrest Friday. His bond is set at $250,000 due to the judge’s fear the Jordanian national would flee the country. A Lyft spokesperson provided the following statement to the Reporter: “These allegations are horrific and very upsetting. There is no tolerance for behavior like this in the Lyft community, and we take these claims very seriously. As soon as we were made aware of his incident, we immediately deactivated the driver’s account. We have reached out to the passenger to offer our support and assistance, and have been in communication with authorities.” Albadri faces up to 27 years if he’s convicted.

|Harrisburg police begin testing body-worn camerasABC 27 / 3 d. 13 h. 59 min. ago more|
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Harrisburg police says it has started testing body camera technology. At a press conference Friday, Capt. Deric Moody said cameras from four different companies will be tested by the department over the next 60 days. “There was a lot of leg work that went into the program itself, and the program is in no shape or form ready for a full roll out,” said Moody. Officers are expected to hit record during all police incidents, including any public interaction outside of a normal greeting. A cloud-based system is what the department may use to store audio and video captured by the camera. It’s not clear how much the new technology will cost the department, but Capt. Moody says $70,000 has already been allocated in the city’s budget for the new technology. Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse believes the cameras will make the city safer. “I also think they are going to go a long way to helping heal the divide between the community and the police,” said Papenfuse. The department hopes that by next year, its roughly 70 patrol officers will be wearing body cameras. The city says it’s actively looking for feedback from officers and the community. All comments should be directed to the mayor’s office. Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go. Download our News App and our Weather App for your phone and tablet.
