2023.05.28 19:42 ALiddleBiddle JPMorgan, US Virgin Islands trade allegations over enabling Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking of girls
The U.S. Virgin Islands and JPMorgan Chase are trading allegations about their respective roles in allegedly enabling Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking of young girls to the Caribbean.submitted by ALiddleBiddle to Epstein [link] [comments]
JPMorgan Chase & Co. said Chief Executive Jamie Dimon stated in a deposition Friday that he never met or communicated with Epstein, who was the bank’s client from 2000 to 2013, Reuters reported. Epstein remained a JPMorgan client after pleading guilty in 2008 to a Florida state prostitution charge.
Dimon’s testimony represented a milestone in the lawsuit first filed by U.S. Virginia Islands Attorney General Denise George in December alleging JPMorgan "turned a blind eye to evidence of human trafficking over more than a decade because of Epstein’s own financial footprint, and because of the deals and clients that Epstein brought and promised to bring to the bank."
The lawsuit alleges JPMorgan "knowingly facilitated, sustained, and concealed the human trafficking network" operated by Epstein from his home and base in the Virgin Islands, and financially benefited from this participation, directly or indirectly, by failing to comply with federal banking regulations.

“These decisions were advocated and approved at the senior levels of JPMorgan, including by the former chief executive of its asset management division and investment bank, whose inappropriate relationship with Epstein should have been evident to the bank. Indeed, it was only after Epstein’s death that JPMorgan belatedly complied with federal banking regulations regarding Epstein’s accounts," the complaint says.
JPMorgan responded to the litigation last week, alleging that it was U.S. Virgin Islands top officials who had allegedly accepted money, favors and influence from Epstein in exchange for overlooking and enabling Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.
The bank alleged that Cecile de Jongh, the wife of former USVI Gov. John de Jongh, was Epstein’s "primary conduit for spreading money and influence throughout the USVI government," claiming she "explicitly advised Epstein on how to buy control of the USVI political class," and even emailed Epstein asking for his input on the territory’s draft sex offender law. The filing also claims de Jongh arranged flights and helped secure school and work visas for Epstein’s victims. The first lady allegedly received $200,000 in 2007 alone, according to the bank's filing.
“USVI protected Epstein, fostering the perfect conditions for Epstein’s criminal conduct to continue undetected. Rather than stop him, they helped him," the bank wrote. "In sum, in exchange for Epstein’s cash and gifts, USVI made life easy for him. The government mitigated any burdens from his sex offender status. And it made sure that no one asked too many questions about his transport and keeping of young girls on his island."
FOX Business reached out to JPMorgan Chase and the U.S. Virgin Islands' governor's office for comment, but neither immediately responded.
Dimon, who joined JPMorgan in 2004 and became CEO in December 2005, is not a defendant and has not been accused of wrongdoing, but U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan had told him to set aside up to four days for depositions centered on what he knew of the bank’s relationship with Epstein.
JP MORGAN SUES FORMER EXECUTIVE OVER JEFFREY EPSTEIN TIES, POTENTIAL DAMAGES
"At today’s deposition, our CEO repeatedly confirmed that he never met with him, never emailed him, does not recall ever discussing his accounts internally, and was not involved in any decisions about his account," JPMorgan said in a statement Friday, according to Reuters, arguing the "millions and millions of emails and other documents that have been produced in this case" do not come close to "even suggesting that he had any role in decisions about Epstein’s accounts."
Rakoff on Wednesday ruled that he would not block JPMorgan’s legal effort to blame its former private banking chief Jes Staley for misleading the bank and concealing his personal friendship with Epstein to keep the late financier on as a client, the New York Daily News reported.
JPMorgan sued Staley in March, seeking to make him liable for any damages awarded during the two lawsuits.
Epstein died while in federal custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan in 2019. His death was ruled a suicide. Epstein has been indicted for allegedly creating a "vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit in locations," including his homes in New York and Palm Beach, Florida.
Epstein’s former girlfriend, British socialite, Ghislaine Maxwell, was sentenced in June 2022 to 20 years, which she is now serving at a Florida prison, for her role in a scheme to sexually exploit and abuse multiple minor girls with Epstein over the course of a decade. The victims were as young as 14.
Earlier this month, Deutsche Bank agreed to pay $75 million to settle a separate lawsuit claiming it should have seen evidence of sex trafficking by Epstein when he was a client

2023.05.28 13:03 FelicitySmoak_ On This Day In Michael Jackson HIStory - May 28th
1971 - The Jackson 5 play at the Spectrum (now closed - 2009) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.submitted by FelicitySmoak_ to MichaelJackson [link] [comments]
1988 - Michael's duet with Stevie Wonder , "Get It", from Stevie's album Characters peaks at #80 on the Hot 100 Chart while it was at #6 on the R&B chart
1989 - Michael was one of the few winners present at the Black Radio Exclusive awards show at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles. He was honored as the "Triple Crown Winner for Outstanding Achievement in Pop, Rock and Soul."
The elegantly laminated plaque has a black and gold edging, with purple printing on a faux-marble background, with a stylized photo image of Michael in his trademark black fedora.
1997 - His 2nd day in Poland starts with a stop at the presidential palace where Michael is received by the first lady. In his quest for a residence in Poland, he then visits the luxury Hotel Bristol. Price for the hotel ended up being too high. He then went to the Warsaw City Hall where he signed a “preliminary letter of intent” to develop a 'Michael Jackson’s Family Entertainment Park', in the Polish capital.
“My dream is to appeal to the child that lives in the heart of every man and woman on this planet and to create something in Poland that is so unique and so unusual that it cannot be experienced in any other place", he saidThe letter mentioned no price, but Jackson’s business manager, Tarak Ben Ammar, said in an interview that estimates of Jackson’s contribution range between $100 million and $300 million--modest sums by Western theme park standards. Poland would add an unknown amount.
" I would also like to tell a great truth, I have traveled all over the world six times and have been everywhere, but nowhere I liked it more than in Poland. A visit to Poland is the fulfillment of my childhood dreams...."
He shops at the Kidiland toy store, reportedly in the amount of $670,000. He then goes to the children's hospital, with his arms loaded with gifts.
Next he takes a helicopter to Lubiaz, in order to see Cistercian Abbey of Lubiaz, wich he also planned to purchase. Accompanied by Professor Marek Kwiatkowski, who guided him during his visit, Michael spends 45 minutes marveling at the Baroque architecture and the relics. He'll even try a little "heehee" in the middle of the Hall des Princes to test the acoustics! Michael, who wanted to settle in Poland, already saw himself owning this old building, despite the millions of dollars in restoration to be expected.
In the evening, he flies to Bremen, Germany where in three days he will begin the 2nd leg of his HIStory Tour.
The plans to build the amusement park at a nearby military airport won approval from state officials in February 1998. Michael asks for sketches to be drawn up for the proposed theme parks, however, following the project’s approval and a huge hiatus, the army owning the airport does not agree to make it available for the park. Two grounds pointed out by the government will also be denied due to local protests. The Polish government abandons this project altogether and nothing will come out of it
2004 - Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Rodney Melville has ordered a trial-setting conference hearing today. Thomas Mesereau, Brian Oxman & Joe Jackson go to the courthouse; Michael's appearance isn't required. They argue for a reduction in his $3-million bail and seek an order to force prosecutors to move faster in sharing evidence.
In accusing the prosecution of moving too slowly in giving the defense access to the evidence, as required by law, Mesereau said Michael's right to a fair trial was “jeopardized by the undue delay of discovery.”
“The investigation of this case involves dozens of, if not over 100 witnesses, voluminous documents and expert examination on a variety of topics,” Jackson’s lawyers wrote. “The defense needs ample time to conduct follow-up witness interviews, locate and interview rebuttal witnesses and conduct its own forensic examinations, among other things.”
Prosecutors have responded that they have turned over vast amounts of evidence already and are processing the information they have as quickly as possible. They also are strongly resisting an attempt by Mesereau to substantially reduce Jackson’s bail on grounds that it is much higher than the bail for other defendants facing similar charges.
The bail-reduction request notes that Jackson has no prior record, arrests or convictions & that he has fully complied with all conditions of his release on bail, including attending court when ordered.
“Mr. Jackson’s ties to this community are substantial,” the defense motion states. “The record reveals that Mr. Jackson is not a flight risk or a danger to the community. It is also apparent that Mr. Jackson intends to confront and vigorously defend rather than evade the allegations in this case.”
Though Mesereau noted that Santa Barbara County’s bail schedule calls for bail of about $135,000 for the conspiracy and molestation charges in the grand jury complaint, prosecutors oppose the request on grounds that Jackson is a flight risk and that his wealth should be a factor in retaining high bail.
Melville said early in the proceedings that he hoped a trial could begin before the end of this year, but legal experts and many criminal lawyers predicted that would be impossible.
September 13 is set as the date for the trial to begin
On another legal front, Janet Arvizo filed a claim against county child protection officials accusing them of moving too slowly in investigating leaks to the media that were helpful to Jackson’s defense.
Before a psychiatrist who had examined Gavin told Santa Barbara County officials that the child had been molested, Welfare officials had interviewed the family after Living With Michael Jackson aired in early 2003
A memo written by authorities after Jackson’s arrest said the family had denied any sexual abuse. The memo was subsequently released on a website.
Attorney Larry R. Feldman, representing the Arvizos, said he filed the claim, a necessary step before a lawsuit, to force county officials to speedily conclude their investigation to ensure that such a breach of confidentiality “will never occur again to another innocent child.”
2006 - Michael visited a Tokyo orphanage and told a group of 140 excited children "I love you" in Japanese. Michael's van was swarmed by 100+ fans as he arrived. Inside the Seibi Gakuen children's home, he watched a performance of traditional music and dance by the children before speaking briefly on stage. He later shook hands and signed autographs for the children.
Michael's children and Grace visited with the children on this tour of the Japanese orphanage.
"I look forward to seeing old friends and saying hello to my huge fan base in Japan who, like my other fans around the world, have for so many years consistently shown their love and support to me and my family."- MJ"Everyone couldn't believe such a big international star was visiting us," said Kiyoko Mito, headmistress of the Christian-run school. "The children only believed me after seeing the news yesterday that Michael Jackson was actually in Japan," she said
2009 - Having not heard from AEG regarding his salary, Conrad Murray sent another email to AEG & receives a response from Tim Wooley
2013 - Jackson v AEG Trial Day 18
Katherine, Janet, Rebbie and Randy Jackson are in court. Only one of the siblings was allowed in the courtroom as they are potential witnesses. Janet accompanied Katherine during morning session while Rebbie was with her during the afternoon session.
Paul Gongaware Testimony
Paul Gongaware is one of the defendants in the case. He's an adverse witness called by the plaintiffs. Gongaware is Co-CEO of Concerts West, part of AEG Live. Gongaware has toured with Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin and is currently on tour with The Rolling Stones. He worked for Jerry Weintraub in the 80s
He produced Prince's tour in 2004. He has not promoted/produced tours since. Gongaware has not talked to Prince after the tour
Gongaware was a CPA licensed in NY and Washington. He said he believes he's still licensed but hasn't checked status since there's no need
Gongaware testified that landing Jackson, whom he felt was the biggest artist of his era, was huge for AEG. In a 2008 email to AEG Live President and Chief Executive Randy Phillips, Gongaware described how the company should approach Jackson and his manager about a possible comeback tour:
We need to start at the fundamentals. How we do it. The difference between [Live Nation] and us is huge. We are artist-based, they are Wall Street-driven. We are smart people. We are completely honest and transparent with everything we do. That's how [founder] Phil [Anschutz] wants itGongaware said he worked on an Elvis Presley tour. Panish asked if Elvis died of drug overdose, and Gongaware said "Yes". Gongaware replied to a condolences' email on July 5, 2009:
I was working on the Elvis tour when he died, so I kind of knew what to expect. Still quite a shock
"So you knew what to expect when Michael Jackson passed away, is that right, sir?", Brian Panish asked.Despite working as a tour promoter for 37 years -- including for Led Zeppelin, the Grateful Dead and many others -- Gongaware testified that the only artist he ever knew that was using drugs on tour was Rick James
Panish asked about working for Jackson 5, Gongaware said had no interaction with Michael. Gongaware was a logistics manager on the Dangerous tour in 92-93. Panish said Michael made $100 million and donated it to charity. Gongaware said he didn't know
When Gongaware met Jackson was with Colonel Parker (Elvis' manager) in Las Vegas. Michael had wanted to meet the Colonel
Gongaware explained the difference between being tour manager and managing the tour. He talked about Michael's History tour
Panish: "You knew that Michael had been to rehab during the dangerous tour?"Gongaware said he never knew MJ was involved with drugs until after the end of the Dangerous tour. Gongaware told LAPD he was aware of Jackson's previous use of pills/painkillers but did not want to get involved. Gongaware had known for years that Michael Jackson was taking painkillers but wasn't aware he was abusing them until MJ abruptly canceled his Dangerous world tour in the early 1990s to enter rehab. Gongaware said he knew of "two occasions" when Michael used painkillers between shows, but he claimed he didn't grasp the scope of the Michael's sickness until the taped 1993 announcement. "I would dispute knowing that he had a problem. I wasn't aware that there were problems", Gongaware said
Gongaware said he knew a doctor was medicating Jackson during the Dangerous tour but did not find out why the tour was eventually cut short. "Didn't have time,I was just dealing with what was in front of me", he said
Panish said Dr. Finkelstein testified under oath that Gongaware knew Michael had problems with painkillers before the Dangerous tour ended.
Panish: "Do you dispute that?" (Finkelstein testimony)Gongaware said Dr. Finkelstein is his doctor and friend and that they talk off and on, but he doesn't know specifics of the doctor's deposition. Dr. Finkelstein said he gave MJ painkillers after the concert in Bangkok following Michael's scalp surgery. In Gongaware's video deposition:
"Did you ever ask Dr. Finkelstein if he treated Michael during the Dangerous tour?"Another part of Gongaware's video depo: He said yes, he "occasionally treated Michael Jackson on the Dangerous tour"
Panish: "Were you always honest with Michael?"Panish elicited contradictory testimony asking over and over about Gongaware's memory, how long he spent with lawyers to discuss testimony.
On the Bad Tour MJ sold out 10 stadiums at 75,000 tickets per night.
Panish: "That's a pretty big number?""No one knows how many shows we can get with Mikey," said Gongaware. Panish asked about name "Mikey" - he said he used it occasionally
Email on 2/27/09 from Gongaware to Phillips:
We are holding all of the risk, if Michael won't approve it we go without his approval.We let Mikey know just what it will cost him in terms of him making money, and then we go with or without him in London. We cannot be forced into stopping this, which Michael will try to do because he is lazy and constantly changes his mind to fit his immediate wants.Gongaware said his use "Mikey" was affectionate, not disparaging, and that the 'lazy' crack amounted to "poor choice of words" but one that accurately reflected how Michael "really didn't like to rehearse. He didn't like to do these kinds of things."
"People were aware at this point there would be a press conference. Michael wouldn't show up at the conference, it'd cost money," Gongaware said. "It wasn't much risk at all, we hadn't spent money," Gongaware said about that point of the tour. This was prior to news conference.
Gongaware said the situation in London, where they constantly referred to Michael as "Wacko Jacko" would impact marketability to sell tickets
"He doesn't want to do this kind of things, but it was important to show Michael to the world if he wanted to do a show," Gongaware explained
Jurors were shown several e-mails from Gongaware that Jackson lawyers suggested were evidence that AEG Live deliberately misled Jackson about how much money he would make from his comeback concerts and how many days he would have to rest between shows. Gongaware wrote to his boss, AEG Live President Randy Phillips, that they should present gross ticket sales numbers to Jackson, not the percentage of the net profits, during contract talks.
"Maybe gross is a better number to throw around if we use numbers with Mikey listening"Panish talked about an email Gongaware sent to his secretary suggesting that she design a concert calendar for Jackson using light tan colors for show dates, while drawing attention to his rest days
Don't want the shows to stand out too much when Michael looks at it.Less contrast between work and off. Maybe off days in a contrasting soft color. Put 'OFF' in each off day after July 8, as well. Figure it out so it looks like he's not working so much.
Panish: "Did you want to change the color of the schedule to show Michael would not be working so hard?"Gongaware said it would be obvious when Michael would be working and not and he wasn't trying to trick him.
Email on 3/25/09 from Phillips to Gongaware:
"We need to pull the plug now. I will explain"
Panish: "Mr. Phillips wanted to pull the plug on the show, right sir?""Kenny wanted the pull because the way she (Faye) handled situations," Gongaware explained. "She tried to control access to Michael and Kenny didn't like that"
Karen Faye expressed strong opinion that the tour as dangerous and impractical for MJ. Panish asked about a chain of emails where Gongaware said the pulling the plug refers to Ms. Faye. "I believe he was," Gongaware repeated.
In another March 25, 2009, email, Ortega wrote Gongaware that it was Faye's "strong opinion that this is dangerous and impractical with consideration to Michael's health and ability to perform.".
"I thought he was in good shape at the press conference, I was there," Gongaware said at the deposition. Gongaware was at O2 arena and Phillips was with Michael.
"Michael was late, Randy [Phillips] was saying I'm trying to get him going, I'm trying to get him going".As to Dr. Conrad Murray, Gongaware said there was 1 rehearsal he said hello to him.
"It was basically a hello, on the floor at the Forum. Mikey asked me to retain him. I never hired him"Panish played an interview of Phillips to SkyTV after Michael died:
"The guy is willing 2 leave his practice for large sum of money, so we hired him""I was told Michael wanted him as his doctor for the show," Gongaware said. Gongaware said Michael did not have any illness that he knew of.
Gongaware: "He had taken a physical, he passed the physical and from what I understand there was nothing wrong with him. Maybe some hay fever"Gongaware said he received an email from Bob Taylor that everything was fine and that Michael had passed the physical. Gongaware said he never saw the results of the tests and doesn't know who saw them.
Panish showed video deposition of Gongaware and a declaration he signed about a month before giving the deposition. They contradict themselves.At first, Gongaware insisted he did no negotiating with Murray, but, confronted with emails and his previous testimony, he changed his position and said, "The only thing I did with Dr. Murray was negotiate a price." Gongaware said that neither he nor anyone at the AEG investigated Murray's background or credentials
Panish: "First you said how much did you want?"(to Dr. Murray)Gongaware said Dr. Murray had been Michael's personal doctor for the past 3 years. He said he did not know how many times MJ had seen the doctor. "Michael insisted on him, recommended him, and that was good enough for me, it was not for me to tell him who his doctor should be" Gongaware said
"The fact that he had been Michael Jackson's personal physician for three years was good enough for me," Gongaware said.
He said that Murray initially asked for $5 million to travel to London with Jackson and tend to him during the tour. "I just told him it wasn't going to happen," he said, recalling that Jackson then suggested offering him $150,000 a month. "Michael Jackson insisted on it and recommended him and it was not for me to tell him no," said Gongaware. "I wanted to provide what was necessary for him to do his job...He wanted a doctor and I wanted him to be healthy." Even after the offer of $150,000, Murray wasn't satisfied. "He started saying he wanted more and I said, 'The offer is coming directly from the artist," Gongaware said. Minutes later, he said Murray accepted.
"Did that seem desperate to you?" asked Panish."We agreed on what the compensation was going to be, but there were a lot of issues to be resolved," Gongaware said. Gongaware said he recalled meeting with Dr. Murray where he was told the doctor was going to take care of the medical licensing in London. Gongaware and Timm Wooley are longtime friends. They are currently working on The Rolling Stones tour. Gongaware said he negotiated the price for Dr. Murray, but didn't negotiate the contract. Gongaware explained that he didn't do the negotiation, he would normally refer that to Wooley.
Dr. Finkelstein and Gongaware have been friends for 35-plus years. Gongaware said he never offered Dr. Finkelstein the job of being MJ's doctor and said the doctor would be mistaken if he testified otherwise. Gongaware told the jury he called Dr. Finkelstein to ask what a fair price for a tour doctor would be. Doctor told him it was $10,000/week. As to Dr. Finkelstein wanting to be the tour doctor, Gongaware said he didn't recall specifically, but knew he wanted it."After his death we may have talked, but I don't recall specifics," Gongaware said. Gongaware said he sees Dr. Finkelstein a few times a year, but the subject of Michael never came up. Panish asked Gongaware if Dr. Finkelstein wanted to know if Michael was clean or using drugs. Gongaware said he didn't recall the conversation
Panish asked: "You could have told Dr. Murray at any time that his services were no longer needed, couldn't you?"Gongaware told nanny, Grace Rwamba, that her services would not be needed anymore because AEG was cutting down on Michael's expenses
"I never read the contract, I was there when Michael signed it, but didn't see what was in it," Gongaware said, "Doctor Murray was 100% Michael's cost" Based on the contract, Gongaware said 95% of the production expenses were Michael's responsibility, 5% AEG.
Panish: "Who decided there was a need for a written contract with Dr. Murray?"Gongaware said that if the tour went forward, Dr. Murray would've made $1.5 million for 10 months. Ortega would've made almost that.
Gongaware said although AEG never did a background check on Murray, in his view they had "checked out" the doctor according to their standard practices. "When we check out someone, we either rely on if we know the person or if they're known in the industry or if they're recommended by the artist & in this case, Dr. Murray was recommended by the artist, in fact, the artist insisted"
Panish pressed Gongaware:
"You did nothing to verify anything about Dr. Murray, isn't that true, sir?"Panish asked Gongaware if he approved budgets for April-July including Dr. Murray as production expense. He said he didn't know which budgets he approved. "It's my job to get that show on the road," Gongaware said.
Gongaware said he had to know how much the production had spent at any given time, but didn't have time to read the budget.
Panish: "Do you think you're good at your job, sir?"Gongaware testified that he didn't pay attention to the tour budgets that he approved, even though he was the tour manager.Paul Gongaware said he didn't read through the budgets, instead trusting that the tour accountant knew what he was talking about.
Gongaware testified that Dr. Murray's salary, although included in the company's budget for several months, wasn't something he saw as an actual payment that would be made. "If there's a potential for cost we put it in our budget so there are no surprises later", he said.
Gongaware often pleaded poor memory of events. He said he may have met with Jackson as many as 10 times, but could remember only two of the meetings and only one when Murray was present
Gongaware said he doesn't remember how many meetings he attended at Carolwood house. He didn't recall a meeting where a vase was broken. "There was a meeting where he signed the contract," Gongaware recalled, saying there were more but he doesn't remember specifics. At the meeting in early June, Gongaware said he was present along with Kenny, Randy, Frank DiLeo, Dr. Murray and Michael. "The meeting was about making sure Michael and Dr. Murray had everything they needed to care for Michael," Gongaware explained.
"Yes, we did talk about health-related issues. It was more a general meeting about what Dr. Murray would need", Gongaware said. He had told the police the topic of the meeting was Jackson's overall health ( i.e., diet, stamina and his weight)
He remembered that Jackson arrived late from a doctor's appointment and had slurred speech. Gongaware said Michael Jackson "was a bit off". "He was just coming back from visiting Dr. Klein. I believe he was under the influence of something. That was the only time I saw him like that", Gongaware said.
Jackson had missed a rehearsal and was thought to be dancing at home. However they discovered he was only watching video. Doctor Murray was receptive to their concerns and indicated he would take care of the situation

2023.05.26 20:06 khoafraelich789 3 Most Common Hyundai Tucson Problems Reported by Many Real Owners
submitted by khoafraelich789 to CarInformationNews [link] [comments]
The Hyundai Tucson is a popular choice for the compact crossover SUV segment, with its stylish design, upscale cabin, many safety features, and efficient hybrid options. While the Tucson is a solid pick, it’s not completely free of issues. Here are the three most common Hyundai Tucson problems reported by many real owners.
What are the most common Hyundai Tucson problems?
To find out the most frequent issues that Hyundai Tucson owners encountered, we looked at analysis from RepairPal. While some automotive evaluators rely on their own testing to determine a vehicle’s reliability, RepairPal collects data from real owners, including the severity, frequency, and cost of repairs. The benefit of this type of analysis is that it’s reflective of real-world scenarios.
Here are the three most common Hyundai Tucson problems reported by owners:
Illuminated check engine light due to automatic transmission not shifting correctly
Recalled airbag control module
No sound from the speakers
It’s important to note that these issues don’t affect most Tucson models. However, they were the most frequent ones for the crossover SUV, so let’s take a closer look to understand them in greater detail.
Most common Hyundai Tucson problem is an illuminated check engine light from a transmission shifting issue
Based on RepairPal data, the most common Hyundai Tucson problem reported by many owners is the check engine light illuminating as a result of the automatic transmission not correctly shifting. Typically, the cause of the issue is the failure of the speed sensors in the transmission. It’s a simple fix, for the speed sensors are easy to replace — and don’t cost much.
Airbag control module recall
The second most frequent issue reported by owners of the Hyundai Tucson is a defect in the airbag control module. With the defect, there is a greater risk of the passenger side airbag incorrectly deploying during a car accident. Because of this, the airbag control model must be replaced.
For this issue, Hyundai issued two recalls for certain model years of the Tucson (2005-2009, 2013, 2014, and 2016). Like most recalls, Hyundai should cover the cost of the airbag control module replacement.
No sound from the speakers
The other common problem for the Hyundai Tucson is a strange one. For models with a multimedia navigation system, the sound suddenly stops emanating from the crossover SUV’s speakers. Whether it’s when playing the radio, CD player, navigation system, or during telephone calls, the sound just abruptly stops.
Fortunately, the “no sound” issue is easy to address — and typically doesn’t require one to take the vehicle to a service center. The cause of the problem is a software glitch, which can be resolved with a “hard reset.” To do the “hard reset,” disconnect the negative battery terminal in the crossover SUV. Wait around 15 minutes and then reconnect the terminal. After that, the sound should come back.
Is the Hyundai Tucson a reliable crossover SUV?
For reliability, the Hyundai Tucson is “above average,” according to RepairPal data, with a rating of four out of five. In a field of 26 compact SUVs that the automotive site evaluated, the Tucson is the fifth most reliable vehicle.
The ownership costs for repairs of the Tucson are relatively low too. The average annual repair costs are $426, which is lower than most compact SUVs. This is the result of less frequent and severe repairs.

2023.05.26 18:06 SalmaanQ The Endgame Part 4 - Fuck Tha Police and their Best Buy Shell Game
Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, the state has indeed presented a strong case against Adnan Syed. They presented a sole eye witness whose story changed by the minute. That witness said that Adnan told him that he murdered Hae Min Lee. He said that Adnan proudly popped open the trunk of a car in the Best Buy parking lot and showed him the victim's body. Remember, the state wants you to believe that Adnan Syed strangled the victim in the vehicle and then dragged her dead body out of the car in broad daylight in the parking lot of a location for the busiest consumer electronics retailer in America during business hours and placed it in the trunk. Not one witness noticed that. Not a single shopper. Not a single employee.I'm not sure that a judge would allow that because you're not supposed to talk about evidence that was not presented. But that's not exactly the same thing. You're not talking about what the security camera did or did not show, just that it was obvious evidence that the state inexplicably failed to present. That is, if the state actually believed its own case. At any rate, this is hindsight and it was a strategic call that could have blown up in Gutierrez’s face. Because she was not privy to the information that we have today. She didn’t know what the tape would show. It would be insane for her to suggest evidence that could help the state make it’s case if there ended up being a new trial in the future. Accordingly, I don’t see that as a fuck up.
But who needs a witness when you have security cameras! We were overwhelmed with the state's presentation of security camera footage of all this happening in broad daylight. They showed us footage of the victim's car pulling up to the Best Buy lot. They showed us footage of the car shaking suggesting the physical struggle that took place inside. They showed us footage of the victim's body being dragged out of the car and dumped into the trunk. And they showed us Adnan Syed popping the trunk open to show the victim's body to the state's sole eye witness.
Wait...they did not show any such footage, did they? But this was a Best Buy parking lot in the middle of the day. Surely the first thing the investigating officers did was request the security camera footage, right? No. They waited until after Adnan Syed was indicted and that afternoon, they faxed a subpoena to "Best Buys" for optics. How do we know it was optics? Because they subpoena only requested, and I quote, "all journal rolls, records and employment records for January 13, 1999." Not a single word about security camera footage. They did not request it because they did not want any security camera footage. Because they knew what their sole eye witness with the ever-changing narrative told you did not happen. As you deliberate whether this 17-year old boy should be found guilty of murder, you must ask yourselves why the state did not want you to see the security camera footage.

According to the lawsuit, Hindieh groped and fondled the woman, touching her breasts and placing his hand under her skirt despite her protests. Jane Doe then contacted Yellow Cab, which gave her a similar response that the company gave the police after Livia's death. No one could tell her who the driver was, despite the GPS data they were supposed to collect and the fact she had the driver's phone number.Her friends petitioned the Metro Transportation Licensing Commission to ask that all cabs be required to carry GPS. It was unanimously approved.
2023.05.25 07:07 Future_Background_75 BJS Rips Off consumers with Cheap Faulty defective Westinghouse TV's
I paid $311.73 on 08/31/2022 bought it online and picked up at Bj's a Westinghouse 58" 4K HDR LED Smart TV with 2-Year Coverage In Tampa, Florida. https://www.bjs.com/product/name/3000000000002251750submitted by Future_Background_75 to faultyproducts [link] [comments]
clearly on the website it's advertised with a 2-year coverage of the device
So this TV stopped working after 6 months, well within the manufacture's warranty. I sent pictures and did everything according to the warranty specifications to redeem my refund. After sending everything to Westinghouse, they verified that it was indeed a valid claim & the TV malfunctioned due to their own cheap hardware, but stated they would refuse to honor my claim because I had a 2-year warranty. However, the 2-year warranty is through Westinghouse TV not BJS, neither Westinghouse TV nor BJS will take responsibility.
Westinghouse TV responded and just said, "while your claim is valid, we aren't going to honor it because you purchased an extended warranty. I didn't purchase anything additional, the TV came with an additional 2-year coverage with the purchase. And that is an addition to the 1-year manufacture warranty, which Westinghouse TV refuses to honor. BJ's tells me that the coverage is through Westinghouse and Westinghouse says its BJS???
Proof they refused to honor warranty
I also contacted BJ's Customer service number -1800-257-2582 I also called their executive office to which I was told it would be escalated, and it would take 2 days to get a refund, however it's been a week and nothing. The BJS rep won't respond back to the original email, and neither will Westinghouse TV.
I have evidence and images of implied and expressed warranties on both companies that was inside the product and as well on their website, I have printed threads of emails and documented very incriminating communication by Westinghouse and BJS that shows them culpable of denying said implied or expressed warranties I screen shotted all of it and compiled all the juicy receipts, I also have pics of the faulty TV and the defective lines on the screen, and proof of purchase.
Defective TV with Lines in it going horizontal and vertical
I then analyzed that evidence against current Florida laws, US laws and any applicable laws that These companies may have violated.
Which are as follows: Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA): This law prohibits deceptive, unfair, and unconscionable acts or practices in trade or commerce. Selling a deliberately faulty TV could be considered a deceptive practice under this law.
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act: This federal law governs warranties on consumer products. If the faulty TV was sold with a warranty that did not disclose the limited working period, it could potentially violate this law.
Implied Warranty of Merchantability: Under Florida law, there is an implied warranty of merchantability, which means that when a retailer sells a product, it is assumed to be reasonably fit for its ordinary purpose. Selling a TV that is designed to fail after a short period of time may breach this implied warranty.
Express Warranty: If the retailer made specific claims or promises about the TV's quality or durability, and these claims were false or misleading, it could constitute a breach of an express warranty.
I have filed reports with the BBB, Consumer Affairs, Consumer Service Division, The Florida Attorney General, The Department of agriculture, The FTC, and the consumer product and safety commission just to name a few.
I also will be sending a demand letter for breach of contract to BJ's Corporate offices and if I still don't get a resolution after that I am going to sue in small claims court for the maximum amount allotted.
But first before I sue I shall send a demand letter for breach of contract and demand the original sum paid for the T.V., I'm also going to attempt to return it one last time to the store but this time i will have someone record the BJS rep and me and get it on camera them denying the return or honoring the 2-year warranty that came with the TV.

2023.05.24 19:55 ryu289 He never even read my links.
So the first link actually destroys your argument, as it shows a problem that actually talks about racial bias, not to mention the article itself is heavily biased. So good job shooting yourself in the dick there!This is what I said:
I was talking about CRT. With that link it talks about lie involving CRT.""Don't forget, there are STILL teachers out there trying their damnedest to push CRT and transsexualism onto children in schools" And what does that even mean? Because 9 times out of 10, these are not st buzzwords from the right: https://popular.info/p/ron-desantis-math-textbook-hoax
The second article is another falsehood, trying to spin the parents of the child that tried to take her own life as the bad guys while the school, WHOSE TEACHERS ACTUALLY TRIED TO TRANSITION THEIR KINDERGARTEN CHILD (https://washingtonstand.com/news/my-blood-still-boils-father-recalls-schools-secret-attempt-to-transition-daughter) looks like a haven of angels in comparison! So great work, making yourself look almost as shady as those teachers.Here is what my link said:
Here is what he said before:The above paragraph demonstrates how the lack of parity benefits the religious right's narrative. An article by News4Jax provided details omitted from FRC's rendition of the story:The next seven links are all to the same article, so I'll just torpedo them all here: It's all bullshit. So it tries to dispute the HB 1557 Bill as the "Don't Say Gay" Bill and spin it as an attack on the LGBTQIA+=<>!@#$%&* community, while citing what it actually says here, which I shall now quote:
The parents claim that the administration of the Clay County elementary school their child attends overstepped its authority in discussing and supporting their child’s request to be referred to by a different name and gender and, in doing so, that the district violated the parents’ rights to direct the education of their child. After the child told the school counselor about two separate suicide attempts in early January, the parents were notified and later filed the lawsuit that month. The parents told News4JAX that the concept of changing one’s gender identity is inconsistent with the family’s catholic Christian beliefs and referred to the scenario as “a mental health problem.”The parents are blaming the school for something they themselves are responsible for, i.e. the child being afraid to come out to them.
They are attempting to make the school look like culprits instead of asking themselves why was their child scared to be honest with them. Also don't let FRC's article confuse you with its phraseology. Claiming that the school was "transitioning" the child is a sly way to allude to people's stereotypes about the transgender community - the belief that surgery is always involved. The actions the school took were minor ones in order make the child feel at ease.
"Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards"
In other words, you disingenuous douche-canoe, it stipulates that you cannot discuss things about sexual orientation or gender identity TO MINORS UNDER TEN YEARS OF AGE!!! but the fact that you find that problematic seems pretty sus to me. You got some hidden pics you don't others to see, groomer?
And yet he still defends bills that don't define what "insturcts" and "age appropriate" are. IN fact the link he skewers points this out:While I don't particularly care for JSG's anti-conservative tirades, this time I'll have to make an exception because, honestly, I can believe this has happened, completely. What really gets me is the student telling her parents that their teacher showed them the movie and her mother, who had a seat on the schoolboard and a prominent member of the department of education, because I was in a similar situation.
When I was a kid, my parents split up(mostly due to my mom being unable to deal with my dad and his decisions on how to be a parent...among other things), and my father was awarded majority custody of me. I would visit my mother and half-brothers in the summer, and when we did we weren't allowed to watch the classic cartoons like: Johnny Bravo; Ed, Edd, 'n Eddy; Courage the Cowardly Dog; SpongeBob SquarePants; etc. I asked my mom one time why, and she said "Because they're adult-oriented shows being pushed onto kids to perverse our childhood". She went so far as to tell our friends' parents not to let us watch it when we went over to their house(s). And it doesn't stop there; this is the same woman who regularly attended PTAs to criticize the teachers AND students; made class-visits to observe the teachers to make sure they were "doing their job"(though honestly, I think it was to keep an eye on me because I wasn't a good student), and was a BIG fan of using verbal abuse and beatings for discipline! Long story short, my mom cared too much. She was literally one of the prototypes of the female model we now know as the "Karen".
So instead of realizing the problems with this law, he doubles down on it.In other words, “instruction . . . on sexual orientation or gender identity” — terms not defined in the law – is completely prohibited for students up to the third grade. Beyond the third grade, such instruction is permitted only to the extent that it is “age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.” The vagueness of the law raises numerous questions. Does it mean, for example, that an educator can use books with LGBTQ+ characters so long as the discussion of those books does not focus on their sexual orientation or gender identity? Does it mean that all discussion of families and the many different ways families are formed must be avoided altogether in grades K-3? The Florida Department of Education has so far failed to give any guidance on these or countless other questions about how the law will be applied. It is important to know, however, that Florida law must give way to the non-discrimination protections of federal civil rights law that are detailed below. Accordingly, efforts by school administrators to enforce the “Don’t Say Gay” law in a way that prohibits only LGBTQ+ educators from discussing their family status or prohibits only children of same-sex marriages from discussing their families, violate those non-discrimination mandates and should be countered using the complaint procedures detailed below.
Your TA article is almost as hilarious. Half the links in it lead to pages that no longer exist, and the other try, and fail, to dispute that girls are uncomfortable with boys entering their bathrooms/locker rooms:His first link is this, which is false.
So he shoots himself in the foot.GLAAD to media: Don't get duped by fabricated stories of transgender youth harassing students
I mean, sorry that you're offended that girls feel uncomfortable when a guy enters what's supposed to be their "safe space" and don't feel safe, but really they should be more open to the idea. I mean, it's not like anything bad has ever happened, right?!As compared to Christains having unfettered access? And why lie?
The child trafficking, as horrible as it is, should be investigated at the federal level, which I highly doubt it is. Should DeSantis look into it? Absolutely, but he's not the root cause of it.He's just choosing to ignore it. Double standards much? Where is the consistency? ANd since when has "foster home abuse" been the exact same as "child trafficking"?
Yes, because separating children from parents who are GIVING MINORS HORMONE BLOCKING DRUGS TO PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THEIR BODIES is just the height of parental abuse. Truly, we should focus more on separating children from their religious, kind and caring parents. Then again, you would be all for that.What permanant damage? What about the parents that affirm their child's gender? Or are you just trying to push heteronormaitve values even if it harms kids

Is there anything besides a bad purge valve canister that would cause this?
I’m trying to rig it safely-ish until my parts come next week.

2023.05.24 19:02 Hopeful-Operation-38 Acturat or Radio? 2010 Honda Accord
By "part" I'm referring to the Blend door actuator for the passenger side. He was sure it wasn't that because at the time my air was blowing freezing cold. But now... not so much. This is a 2010 Honda Accord with dual A/C. The clicking only happens when I get in the car and start up it goes away after like 10-15 seconds. But when I click CD/ AUX button it goes crazy and start clicking again. So that's why my mechanic thought it wasn't the actuator. So thoughts?submitted by Hopeful-Operation-38 to AskMechanics [link] [comments]
But alsoooo any recommendations for the radio? Is there a fuse for that or so? I read somewhere, I may need to replace the whole radio. I know the basic stuff about cars but not too much. I’m a college student who doesn’t want a car note so want to ride this thing out until I can’t no more
