RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY

SHOTLIST:

ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY|

Washington, DC - 17 August 2018

1. Trump walks on White House South Lawn toward press

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, U.S. President:

"Well Turkey has been a problem for a long time. They have not acted as a friend. We'll see what happens. They have our wonderful Christian pastor. He's a wonderful man, Pastor Brunson. They made up this phony charge that he's a spy. And he's not a spy. He's going through a trial right now, if you can call it a trial. They should have given him back a long time ago. And, Turkey has, in my opinion, acted very, very badly. So we haven't seen the last of that. We are not going to take it sitting down. They can't take our people. So you will see what happens."

(Reporter question: Will you pardon Paul Manafort?)

I don't talk about that. I don't talk about that. I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad. When you look at what's going on there, I think it's a very sad day for our country. He worked for me for a very short period of time. But you know what? He happens to be a very good person. And I think it's very sad what they've done to Paul Manafort. Thank you."

3. Trump walks across the lawn and boards Marine One

6. Trump climbs stairs of Air Force One and waves before walking inside

STORYLINE:

President Donald Trump refused to say Friday whether he would pardon Paul Manafort if he's found guilty, calling him a "very good person" as a jury deliberates in the tax and bank fraud trial of the former Trump campaign chairman.

Trump made the comments as he departed the White House for New York and New Jersey.

The president said Manafort only "worked for me for a very short period of time," but added "I think it's very sad what they've done to Paul Manafort."

The jury began its second day of deliberations Friday.

Prosecutors say Manafort hid tens of millions of dollars in foreign income from the IRS, money he made advising politicians in Ukraine. When the Ukrainian money dried up, they say he lied on loan applications to maintain his cash flow.

Trump also once again called out Turkey for it's refusal to release an American pastor who has been detained there.

Saying "Turkey has been a problem for a long time," Trump called charges of espionage against Pastor Andrew Brunson "phony" and suggested the U.S. would take further action against the country.

"They should have given him back a long time ago. Turkey has, in my opinion, acted very, very badly. So we haven't seen the last of that. We are not going to take it sitting down. They can't take our people," Trump said.

UBER TAXI FINAL-renew

Kenny Chow was one of six taxi drivers that
chose to commit suicide in the last six months.

He died at the age of 56.

He entered the taxi industry with
his brother Richard Chow 10 years ago.

He had to borrow money from the bank
to be able to pay for a taxi medallion.

“Due to the prosperity of ride-sharing services,
the traditional taxi business decreases,” said Richard.

Richard Chow: “He borrowed money from the bank
to buy the medallion, for 700,000 US dollars.

The business was good at the beginning,
in recent 5 years, he started to earn less and less.”

Eventually, Kenny fell behind on
medallion loan payments.

Along with personal health problems and
debt, he fell into despair.

Every taxi driver in New York City
is required to own a medallion.

The medallion system regulates pricing and limits
the numbers of taxis on New York City streets.

The yellow taxi was once capped for many years,
causing the medallion to increase in value.

Five years ago, they were changing hands
at a price reaching $1 million dollars.

Since Uber and other rideshare companies
entered the market,
the value of the medallion has fallen
to around $200,000.

The emergence of Uber has changed
the way people live.

Passengers do not have to go to
the streets to hail a cab.

New Yorker Laurence:
“I can use the app and I will have the driver come to me.

I will be able to pay on the app,
rather than cash.

the other convenient part about Uber is that
the driver already knows where I want to go

by the time they come to me.”

But when Caicedo arrived at the residence, she spoke with the owner and learned his story.

“He confessed that he didn’t cut his grass in a few years after the loss of a close relative,”

“His balance is off. He can’t stand up for long periods of time and he’s been in a big state of depression after the passing of a very close relative."

"It was very heartbreaking and it was sad to hear.”

Caicedo couldn’t bring herself to hand him a fine.

Instead she wanted to help him, but she couldn't do it alone.

“It was hard at first to get people to come out on their day off,” Caicedo said.

But she managed to gather 11 of her coworkers to help a stranger in need out on a Saturday.

Over the course of four hours, the volunteers used their own equipment to mow, weed, and spruce up the man’s yard.

Usually when you have pizza delivered, you want it in 30 minutes or less, have a quick exchange with the pizza guy, and start eating.

But when the Varchettis had a pizza delivered by a local teen, what he threw in as a side,

They never wanted him to leave.

On July 25th, Paul Parchetti was at home with his 10-year-old son Ryan, and decided to order a pizza.

He called up Hungry Howie’s Pizza in Sterling, and soon enough 18-year-old Bryce Dudal arrived with the order.

Dudal has been making deliveries since October and loves the job,

but as the world would soon discover, he also possessed an incredible gift.

Upon arriving at the Varchetti home, Dudal asked about the family’s baby grand piano in the foyer.

Paul invited the teen to play the piano and when he hit the keys,

everyone was left stunned by his passionate rendition of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"

Paul couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He filmed the teen’s performance and immediately sent it to his wife.

Even more impressive, Dudal is mostly self-taught.

He’s been playing most of his life, thanks to early exposure to classical music.

“My mom, when I was real young, she got me Beethoven CDs, and I used to sit there and listen to them all day,” he said.

However, by the time he played for the Varchettis, Dudal's music career had been put a bit to the side.

He has been playing baseball, another talent of his, which earned him a scholarship as he heads to Macomb Community College.

But now, the video of the impromptu performance has nearly a million views on Facebook.

“It was kind of a big wake up call right here for me to get back into music,” said Dudal.

The video has earned him plenty of fans and even offers from local bands, reigniting an interest in studying music at school.

As for the Varchettis, they’re thrilled for their pizza boy and have met with him since posting the video.

“It’s one of those heartwarming stories.”

“You can never judge a book by its cover.”

Five charged with abusing children on New Mexico compound face detention hearing-with logo

The father of a missing Georgia boy was training children at a New Mexico compound to commit school shootings, prosecutors said in court documents obtained Wednesday, as authorities waited to learn if human remains found at the site were those of the boy.

The documents say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was conducting weapons training with assault rifles at the compound near the Colorado border where authorities say they found 11 hungry children living in filthy conditions in a raid Friday.

Prosecutor Timothy Hasson filed the court documents while asking that Wahhaj be held without bail after he was arrested last week with four other adults facing child abuse charges.

"He poses a great danger to the children found on the property as well as a threat to the community as a whole due to the presence of firearms and his intent to use these firearms in a violent and illegal manner," Hasson wrote.

Prosecutors did not bring up the school shooting accusation in court on Wednesday during an initial appearance by the abuse suspects. A judge ordered Wahhaj held without bond pending further proceedings.

In the court documents, authorities said a foster parent of one of the 11 children removed from the compound had told authorities that the child had been trained to use an assault rifle in preparation for a school shooting.

PETA Asia: Bodies of Dead Stray Dogs Dumped on Xi’an Street 'Cruel ... Ineffective'
After a video appeared online showing the bodies of dogs killed in Xi’an, China, dumped in the street, the animal-rights group PETA Asia decried the practice as a “cruel … ineffective” way to control populations of strays.
In a post on Weibo, PETA Asia shared footage of what it estimated were 20 dogs inhumanely killed in the central China city. PETA Asia said government departments should provide shelters for the stray animals, and punish the people who killed the dogs. Some puppies seen in the footage appear to still be alive, left near the bodies of their mothers.
“Not only is killing stray dogs in this way cruel, it’s also totally ineffective,” said PETA Asia Vice President Jason Baker in an August 13 press release.
The statement read: “Animal population experts agree that laws mandating that all owned animals be sterilized to prevent unwanted births – coupled with full-service animal-sheltering programs – are the most effective ways to reduce stray animal populations. Stray dogs – not just in China but all over the world – are poisoned, hit by cars, tortured at the hands of cruel people, or suffer from disease or starvation. PETA asks that everyone does their part to help in the fight against animal overpopulation: always spay/neuter your pets, and always adopt animals from shelters or rescue groups, never buy them from breeders or pet stores.”

September 3, 2016 is a tragic day that Marcus Kowal and Mishel Eder will remember forever.

It was the day they lost their son Liam.

On that day, Eder's sister was taking 15-month-old Liam for a stroll.

Her sister was crossing the street with Liam in a stroller. She crossed the first lane, then the second,

but when she got to the third lane, the unthinkable happened.

A drunk driver struck Eder’s sister and Liam, and then sped off.

Liam’s aunt suffered a broken leg, but his condition was much more severe.

His heart had stopped beating and he wasn’t breathing.

The police performed CPR, and Liam started breathing again.

However, after 12 hours of tests, two doctors informed Kowal and Eder that Liam was brain dead.

The devastated couple then made the decision to donate his organs.

While the couple was in the hospital, they were determined to make something good come from the tragic loss of their son.

Nevertheless, handling this was difficult for the family, and they both did it in their own ways.

Four days after Liam’s passing, Kowal began writing as a way to contend with his emotions.

For Eder, exercise was crucial to deal with such a difficult time.

Kowal and Eder would also meditate in order to escape their pain, even if it was only a brief reprieve.

Having the support of their family and friends—and each other—also greatly helped the couple contend with such a heartbreaking loss.

Over time, Kowal and Eder have begun to tolerate their grief.

“The pain will always be there. Certain days are worse than others. You learn how to live with it,” Kowal said.

A chance for more happy moments came when Kowal and Eder had their second child Nico on July 26, 2017—a blessing during a period of severe grief.

They want to make sure that Nico grows up knowing that he’s just as important to them as Liam was.

The day after Liam’s funeral, Kowal and Eder started Liam’s Life Foundation.

The nonprofit organization honors the baby’s memory by working to end drinking and driving.

“My main mission is still Liam. I hope people feel the love that I have for him by trying to save them."

"His life is more than just the 15 months that he was here. So that fire that we have is what keeps us going,” Eder said.

Prettner and Haberl combine to book Red Bull Foiling Generation World Final place.

History was made on the picturesque Lake Achensee in Austria as the young Austrian sailors battling it out for Red Bull Foiling Generation qualifier glory smashed the speed record. Here is all you need to know:

- Favourable mountain winds in the Tyrol have traditionally made Lake Achensee a popular sailing destination with the Fjord of the Alps previously producing a speed record of 27.2 knots (about 50 kmh) with a Moth.

- The cream of young Austrian sailing talent aged 16 to 20 eclipsed that mark with a stunning velocity of 28.6 knots (just shy of 55 kmh) as hundreds of spectators cheered from the shore and other boats on the water.

- Winning duo Keanu Prettner and Niclas Haberl mastered the conditions best on the Flying Phantom catamarans with a place in November's World Final awaiting them now in Florida's sailing mecca of Miami.

- Prettner declared: "It's a great success to win this regatta. We are very proud to represent Austria at the World Final in Miami. We learned a lot from Roman Hagara and Hans Peter Steinacher (Red Bull Foiling Generation co-directors) and this will bring our performance to another level in future."

- Hagara said: "We’ve taken Red Bull Foiling Generation all over the world, and it’s been a dream to finally hold a regatta in Austria on these technically advanced boats that are like little rockets."

- Steinacher added: "All eyes will be on the World Final in the USA this autumn, where talent scouts and sailing pros will have a chance to spot the superstars of the future among teams from 16 nations."

- The last national championship of 2018 will mark another premiere as the American sailors compete in the colourful city of Miami from November 3-4 followed by the all-out action of the World Final on November 9-11.

Police called to 'loud music' event, turns out to be wedding ceremony

When called to investigate reports of loud music and merriment, Officers Joe Orcutt, Kim Donnell, and Jenna Anzengruber finally located the troublemakers in a party-tent on Gilman Avenue.

They had no city permit for the wedding celebration, but since you don't need a permit for a wedding celebration we treated it as a non-issue.

Liz and Marcus Preyer were initially concerned that it was possible that all the things they had heard about cops were true; would the wedding be shut-down?

Would the bride or groom be swept away in the back of a black and white cruiser for merely dancing to the Village People's long-version of Y.M.C.A?

Would their guests be subject to heavy-handed interrogation techniques in order for the cops to find the shrimp bowl?

Only question number three became a reality when Officer Jim Hassard showed up to capture the melee which ensued. It should be noted that the shrimp were gone.

No one knew that Officer Joe Orcutt could dance, although Mrs. Preyer told us later that she had to lead.

Another night of non-issues, bogus worries, and horrible dancing came to a close with no arrests, injuries, or drunken brawls.

Orcutt claims he pulled a hammy.

Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

FILE court awards damages to man claiming weedkiller caused cancer

A jury's 289 million US dollar award to a former school groundskeeper who said Monsanto's Roundup left him dying of cancer will bolster thousands of pending cases and open the door for countless people who blame their suffering on the weed killer, the man's lawyers said.

Johnson, 46, alleges that heavy contact with the herbicide caused his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The state Superior Court jury agreed that Roundup contributed to Johnson's cancer and Monsanto should have provided a label warning of the potential health hazard.

His was the first case filed by a cancer patient against the agribusiness giant to reach trial.

It was expedited because court filings indicated that Johnson was dying.

His victory may set the precedent for many others.

Monsanto has denied a link between the active ingredient in Roundup — glyphosate — and cancer, saying hundreds of studies have established that glyphosate is safe.

Johnson's attorneys sought and won 39 million US dollars in compensatory damages and 250 million of the 373 million US dollars they wanted in punitive damages.

Monsanto spokesman Scott Partridge said the company will appeal, caliming that scientific studies and two government agencies have concluded that Roundup does not cause cancer.

A woman renting a room to a man discovers he’s a con artist. She now fears for her life and the lives of her children. The woman who asked to only be identified as Shameka moved to North Charlotte in January is now being terrorized.

Shameka said a friend asked her to rent a room to an acquaintance as a favor, she did. The man moved in in April and was supposed to move out in July but she granted him an extension until August 1. She was away on a trip and returned August 5, that’s when she discovered her tenant was a conman.

"I feel like me and my kid's life is in danger. I feel like the police department isn't trying to meet me halfway. I feel like my kids shouldn't feel threatened in their home,” Shameka said.

Tiffany Eickhoff was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when she was just an infant.

Growing up, she struggled with her strength and balance.

“I always say I want to do everything everybody else does but I just may have to do it in a different way”

in December 2017, Eickhoff made the decision to start working out.

Wanting to get in shape, she started going to CrossFit several days a week.

That's when she noticed an interesting side effect.

Before beginning CrossFit, Eickhoff used a wheelchair,

but now she's able to get around using a cane.

“It has done wonders for my cerebral palsy!”

When Eickhoff and her trainer come across exercises she might not be able to do, they modify her workouts.

But there is one exercise Eickhoff didn’t have to modify that recently caught the attention of hundreds of thousands of people.

“I am so excited I officially pulled a tire back and forth for the first time ever!”

In the video, which was shared on CrossFit’s official Facebook page,

Eickhoff is shown pulling a tire several hundred feet across a parking lot.

“Ever since I was a little girl I told myself I’m going to inspire people all around the world”

And that she has.

She decided to find the rightful owner of the ring and turned to social media for help.

Rogers posted photos of the ring to Facebook, asking her friends to help out with finding its original owner.

“I’m hoping to find the owner before we leave this week,” she said in the post.

Little did she know, that her post would go viral in a matter of days.

Amongst the many comments on the status, one of the replies was from someone who apparently was a coworker of the Marine who it belonged to.

Rogers came into contact with the supposed Marine, who was named Jaime Andrade.

They talked for a few days, as the woman just wanted to make sure that this was his ring.

He made the claim that after his graduation, he visited that same Siesta Key beach,

and left the ring by his sandals as he went into the water—he couldn’t find it when he got back.

She even contacted members of the platoon, who mostly claimed they didn’t know who this Andrade was.

But then, Rogers found out that the Marine was technically supposed to graduate on June 30th, the date on the ring,

but unforeseen circumstances led to him graduating weeks later.

Rogers came to the conclusion that it was, indeed, Andrade’s ring.

Soon after, Rogers and her husband met up with Andrade in Siesta, and they gave him back what was his.

The ring was finally back in its proper place.

And even after the ordeal, Andrade became good friends with the couple.

Everything happens for a reason; perhaps Andrade was meant to lose his ring on that day.

And because of it, he has two new friends who most certainly have his back.
