    BOSTON — A California couple agreed Friday to plead guilty to paying $250,000 to get their daughter into the University of Southern California as a fake volleyball recruit. Diane Blake and Todd Blake will plead guilty in front of a judge at a future date, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Boston said in a statement Friday. The couple from Ross, California, had initially pleaded not guilty, news outlets previously reported. The couple was accused of tapping William “Rick” Singer, who...
    A number of personnel at a US Marine Corps base on the Japanese island of Okinawa have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, officials say. The Marines first reported the cases at Camp Butler on Thursday, without disclosing exactly how many had tested positive. “The individuals that have tested positive have been moved into isolation,” Marine Corps Installations Pacific said in a statement. U.S. military officials also said a temporary shelter-in-place was issued for nearby Camp Hansen “to allow health professionals to facilitate contact tracing and cleaning teams.” “These measures...
    ANKARA, Turkey — The president of Turkey on Friday formally converted Istanbul’s sixth-century Hagia Sophia back into a mosque and declared it open for Muslim worship, hours after a high court annulled a 1934 decision that had made the religious landmark a museum. The decision sparked deep dismay among Orthodox Christians. Originally a cathedral, Hagia Sophia was turned into a mosque after Istanbul’s conquest by the Ottoman Empire but had been a museum for the last 86 years, drawing millions...
    A Royal photographer who has snapped Prince Harry throughout his life says that following his marriage to Meghan Markle, “he has simply lost the plot.” Veteran royal photographer Arthur Edwards, 79, said of Harry’s criticism of the British Commonwealth, “To criticize the one thing the queen cherishes above all things, which is preserving the Commonwealth, is an insult to her — no matter what the palace may say officially. “Any country can look back and find faults, but we learn...
    The Eagles didn’t let DeSean Jackson’s post go unpunished. The team announced in a statement Friday that they “penalized” the wide receiver after he posted anti-Semitic quotes incorrectly attributed to Adolf Hitler on his social media this week. According to NFL Network, Jackson was fined for conduct detrimental to the team. Jackson has since apologized and begun an attempt to better educate himself. The Eagles did not specify what Jackson’s exact punishment is. “We have had a number of constructive...
    NFL players haven’t signed off on an NFL season yet. As the league and NFL Players Association negotiate the details of an unprecedented season amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Giants left tackle Nate Solder, the team’s union rep, made it clear the sides aren’t close to an agreement regarding health and safety protocols. “If the NFL doesn’t do their part to keep players healthy there is no football in 2020,” Solder tweeted Friday. “It’s that simple.” With training camps scheduled to...
    As the bidding continues in the sale of the Mets, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Friday it was “business as usual” as far as he was concerned in running the team. “I anticipate it remaining that way until there is or isn’t a change,’’ Van Wagenen said. The first round of bids were due Thursday, but the GM said he was still in constant communication with Jeff Wilpon, as well as his father Fred, about the day-to-day running of...
    Angelo Mascia, DO, and Daniel G. Murphy, MD, work in the Department of Emergency Medicine at St. Barnabas Hospital in The Bronx. They write to The Post about the latest increase in business — electric scooters:  The growing use of private and pay-per-use bicycles in New York City is a worthy and convenient transportation solution that is environmentally friendly. The prevention of injuries and deaths among bicyclists requires ongoing innovation and civil-engineering solutions. Bicyclists, pedestrians and vehicles should safely coexist....
    Despite his public demands to be traded, Le’Veon Bell believes teammate Jamal Adams wants to remain with the Jets. The pair had a “great talk” on Thursday. “I think he wants to be [with the Jets]. I just think he wants to get paid,” Bell said on Hot 97 radio on Friday. “I think he’s in the same situation I was three years ago. He’s a young player. He’s been at the top of the game, playing at a high...
    Signing that “Letter on Justice and Open Debate” looks to have gotten one fairly prominent left-wing writer muzzled — proving the point of the letter. As Kelly Jane Torrance noted in Thursday’s Post, the letter calls for an end to the “intolerance of opposing views” and “vogue for public shaming” now growing on the left. The lefty lashback included an attack from a Vox colleague on Matt Yglesias, a perfectly progressive writer for the site. The complaints were absurd —...
    Kamala Harris kicked off her “Get Up, Stand Up” virtual fund-raising campaign for Joe Biden Thursday night with DJ Cassidy, Beverly Bond, D-Nice, Hannah Bronfman, Jermaine Dupri and Diplo. The evening started with a pre-reception with Harris and the performers and ended with Diplo spinning in front of visuals of the White House and Air Force One. “Get Biden back in the White House. We need your energy. We need you to mobilize,” Diplo said. Over 3,000 people attended and the event raised over $1 million. Spotify launched Biden’s official...
    Count the city’s housing market as another casualty of the pandemic and the lockdown; the only real question is how deep the damage will go. With roughly 700,000 renters thrown out of work and evictions banned for the interim, a full quarter of tenants have gone four months without paying rent, Bloomberg Businessweek reports. They’re still on the hook for it, though — often with no idea how they can ever pay. And that’s left many landlords unable to cover...
    Mayor Bill de Blasio has banned large gatherings in the city until the end of September, saying, “We just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health right now.” But he’s making one big exception: Black Lives Matter protests. “This is a particular moment in American history where 400 years of oppression, 400 years of racism are being addressed in a very, very powerful way that can’t compare to anything else,” he says, “and people’s voices needed to be heard.”...
    Broadway star Nick Cordero — who passed away after a battle with COVID-19 — is getting a table named in his honor at Cafe Fiorello near Lincoln Center. Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, told The Post in May that the spot was “our favorite neighborhood restaurant … we had a regular table outside.” A source tells us that owner Shelly Fireman was so touched by the late “Waitress” star’s courageous fight that a table is being named in his honor. Daryl...
    Thousands of healthy, developmentally disabled New Yorkers are captive behind locked doors because of a bureaucratic regression, backed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and hidden from public view by the COVID-19 crisis. The situation is sadly reminiscent of the horrors of Willowbrook State Hospital. New York state is zooming to the new normal: tattoo parlors inking, beauty parlors snipping, nail salons clipping, bars slinging hooch. Meanwhile, developmentally disabled New Yorkers are being held prisoner in group homes because a state-licensing agency...
    By Tali Arbel | Associated Press Roughly five hours after an internal email went out Friday to Amazon employees telling them to delete the popular video app TikTok from their phones, the online retailing giant appeared to backtrack, calling the ban a mistake. “This morning’s email to some of our employees was sent in error,” Amazon emailed reporters just before 5 p.m. Eastern time. “There is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok.” Company spokeswoman Jaci...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo predicted New York will see another bump in coronavirus cases because of the pandemic’s surge in many southern and western states — and admitted the quarantine he imposed on visitors from hotspots areas will be unable to stop it. “Look, we’re doing everything we can. The quarantine, we have an enforcement mechanism. But, you know, how do you catch somebody driving in, right? I mean, it’s very very difficult, it’s trying to catch water in a screen,”...
    A French bus driver has died five days after being viciously beaten during a dispute over wearing face masks, his family announced Friday. Philippe Monguillot, 58, was initially left brain dead after he confronted a group of passengers who were not complying with a rule that requires face masks on public transportation when they boarded without tickets around 7 p.m. Sunday in Bayonne in south-west France. The passengers dragged him off the bus and onto the platform, where he was kicked...
    At least she knows a guy with a good breakup playlist. Bill Hader and Rachel Bilson have split up, People magazine is reporting. Hader, 42, and Bilson, 38, made their red carpet debut as a couple just seven months ago — or roughly one quarter-century in quarantine time — at the 2020 Golden Globes, where they were dubbed the “cutest couple ever” by makeup artist Amy Nadine. “Multiple” sources told People that the split was “amicable,” though reps are remaining...

    Last month, a disabled, 46-year-old African American man was euthanized without his consent or that of his wife. But rather than exploding amid our racial-justice moment, the story hardly yielded a peep from those who control our national discourse. In 2017, Michael Hickson suffered a brain injury that left him paralyzed. Still, he was able to enjoy many activities: having books read to him, listening to music, answering trivia questions. He had memory problems, but he recalled his birthday and...
    President Trump has commuted the sentence of his longtime adviser Roger Stone, a senior administration official told Politico. The commutation comes just days before Stone was due to report to prison Tuesday to serve a 40-month sentence after he was found guilty on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and lying to Congress. Stone had appealed the ruling and maintains his innocence. Trump hinted earlier Friday that he was considering a presidential pardon for Stone. “I’ll be looking at it....
    ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen such dishonest and biased coverage of any event.” That was Brit Hume, who has been covering events for more than 50 years for Fox News, ABC News and investigative reporter Jack Anderson. The event was President Trump’s Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore. The speech was, according to The New York Times, “dark and divisive,” designed to deliver a “divisive culture war message.” The Washington Post called it a “dystopian speech” and a “push...
    Six U.S. states suffered record spikes in new COVID-19 cases on Friday and Florida, an epicenter of the pandemic, saw infections rise sharply for the second day in a row as the Walt Disney Co. stuck to its plans to reopen its flagship theme park in Orlando. The surges in Georgia, Louisiana, Montana, Ohio, Utah and Wisconsin put the United States on a pace to once again set a single-day record for new coronavirus cases as Walt Disney World became...
    The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information on an Amish teen from Pennsylvania who has been missing for nearly three weeks. Linda Stoltzfoos, 18, of East Lampeter Township, was last seen on Sunday, June 21. Officials said she didn’t return home after attending a church service that Father’s Day, sparking an expansive search involving tracking dogs, horses, ATV equipment and drones. The FBI and the local Lampeter Township Police Department are now asking for the public’s help in...
