ROME (AP) — Italy's most storied soccer club, Juventus, was hit with a massive 15-point penalty for false accounting Friday following an appeal hearing at the Italian soccer federation. But an appeal was made after the federation collected papers from the Turin prosecutors. Federation prosecutor Giuseppe Chiné had requested a nine-point penalty for Juventus earlier Friday. The penalty comes 17 years after the “Calciopoli” refereeing scandal that saw Juventus demoted to Serie B and stripped of two Serie A titles. Turin prosecutors have also apparently discovered more alleged secret payments to former player Cristiano Ronaldo that were not reported by Juventus.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday dismissed as “malicious disparaging” and “dog barking” the outside assessments that cast doubt on its developmental spy satellite and other military capabilities. South Korea’s military maintained North Korea fired two medium-range ballistic missiles. Kim Yo Jong said developing a spy satellite is a sovereign right directly related to North Korea’s national security. She said North Korea will fight international sanctions and boost its defense capabilities because its right to exist is being threatened. Kim Yo Jong questioned how North Korea could have received data from warheads until they landed in previous launches if the country truly lacked reentry technology.1 month ago Bay News 9
An unnamed woman on Wednesday came forward with new allegations against Republican senate candidate Herschel Walker, saying he drove her to an abortion clinic and paid for the procedure after she became pregnant as the result of a consensual relationship in 1993. Among them were alleged handwritten letters from Walker to Doe, signed with “H,” as well as a photo of Walker on one of Doe’s hotel bedrooms. In early October, The Daily Beast published a story about another woman, who similarly asked that her identity be kept private, claiming Walker paid for an abortion in 2009. “We know Herschel Walker has a problem with the truth, a problem answering questions, and a problem taking responsibility for his actions,” a spokesperson for Warnock's campaign said in a statement. Herschel Walker shouldn’t be representing Georgians in the U.S. Senate.”Still, it remains to be seen if – or how much – the most recent accusations will impact Georgia’s race.3 months ago Bay News 9

A federal judge on Thursday dismissed an effort by six Republican-led states to block the Biden administration's plan to forgive student loan debt for tens of millions of Americans. The plan would cancel $10,000 in student loan debt for those making less than $125,000 or households with less than $250,000 in income. The Justice Department says the law allows Biden to reduce or erase student loan debt during a national emergency. He said student loan defaults have skyrocketed over the past 2 1/2 years. The cancellation applies to federal student loans used to attend undergraduate and graduate school, along with Parent Plus loans.3 months ago Bay News 9
