Antron Pippen, the son of Basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen and once a top college prospect, has died. He was 33. Scottie Pippen announced the death on his social media platforms, saying his oldest child died Sunday. He did not give a cause. “I’m heartbroken to share that yesterday, I said goodbye to my firstborn son Antron,” Scottie Pippen wrote Monday. “The two of us shared a love for basketball and we had countless conversations about the game. Antron suffered from chronic asthma and if he hadn’t had it, I truly believe he would’ve made it to the NBA. He never let that get him down, though — Antron stayed positive and worked hard, and I am so proud of the man that he became.” Antron Pippen was an accomplished high school player in Georgia, then played college basketball at South Georgia Tech and Texas A&M International. “The Jets family was saddened to learn of the death of one of our former players, Antron Pippen,” read a Twitter post from the South Georgia Tech athletic department. Antron Pippen’s high school career was well-chronicled and he at one time was listed among the top 100 prospects at his age level. He acknowledged that sharing the last name of a six-time NBA champion generated extra attention. “I’m used to the expectations,” Antron Pippen told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as a high school player in 2006. “When I was younger, it bothered me. I was trying to prove to people that I could play. I’m very proud of my father. But I can only be myself.” Antron Pippen was the oldest of Scottie Pippen’s seven children. He was the only child from Pippen’s first marriage, to Karen McCollum. “Please keep his mom, Karen, and all of his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers,” Scottie Pippen wrote. “A kind heart and beautiful soul gone way too soon. I love you, son, rest easy until we meet again.” Tim Reynolds, The Associated Press
Debt collectors pursuing Americans for overdue rent must tell them in writing about their rights under a nationwide eviction ban, the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) said on Monday. The new interim final rule takes effect on May 3 and seeks to make sure tenants know about protections against eviction under a nationwide moratorium issued https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us-cdc-extends-eviction-ban-through-june-30-document-2021-03-29 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). "Tens of thousands of tenants and families are being evicted every week, many of whom would have had the right to stay in their home," CFPB Acting Director Dave Uejio told reporters.
The following is a roundup of some of the latest scientific studies on the novel coronavirus and efforts to find treatments and vaccines for COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus. Patients with COVID-19 who have been consistently physically inactive have a significantly higher risk of severe outcomes than patients who were getting at least some exercise or regularly met physical activity guidelines prior to the illness, researchers found. Among the 48,440 patients in their study, 14.4% were consistently inactive in the two years before their COVID-19 diagnosis, 79.1% had some activity, and 6.4% consistently met recommended physical activity guidelines of at least 150 minutes per week.

L’ILE-DES-SŒURS, Quebec, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers (QPAREB) has just released its quarterly residential real estate market statistics for the province of Quebec, based on the real estate brokers’ Centris provincial database. In total, 31,587 residential sales transactions were concluded in the first quarter of the year in Quebec. This represents a 14 per cent increase compared to the first quarter of last year and the largest first quarter sales increase since the Centris system began compiling data in the year 2000. "The first quarter is a continuation of what was seen at the end of 2020, in a still challenging health situation. The demand for residential properties has not waned, as we can see by the new Q1 sales record and the fact that the inventory of single-family homes for sale has been reduced by more than half,” said Charles Brant, director of market analysis at the QPAREB. "Unlike 2020, this sharp increase in transactions is mainly attributable to the sale of plexes and condominiums across the province, in record-fast selling times as well." Here are the highlights of the first quarter of 2021. Sales By property category, sales of single-family homes increased by 6 per cent across Quebec in the first quarter of the year, while sales of plexes and condominiums registered more robust increases of 53 per cent and 26 per cent, respectively. Among the province’s metropolitan areas, Saguenay (+29 per cent), Sherbrooke (+26 per cent) and Gatineau (+14 per cent) stood out with significant increases in sales.Together, the regions outside of the province’s metropolitan areas registered a 29 per cent increase in sales, all property categories combined.Some agglomerations posted remarkable sales growth in the first quarter, including Mont-Tremblant (+124 per cent), Charlevoix (+97 per cent), Shawinigan (+53 per cent) and Thetford-Mines (+50 per cent). Active listings There was an average of 27,675 active listings on the Centris system in Quebec in the first quarter of the year, a significant drop of 43 per cent compared to the first quarter of last year. This was the 21st consecutive quarterly decrease in active listings, dating back to the first quarter of 2016. Prices The median price of single-family homes in Quebec stood at $340,000, a 24 per cent jump compared to the first quarter of last year and the largest increase ever recorded. The median price of condominiums also increased significantly by 22 per cent, to reach $305,000.As for plexes with two to five dwellings, their median price decreased by 2 per cent in the first quarter to settle at $415,000. Market conditions and selling times The general decline in the inventory of properties for sale is leading to a further tightening of market conditions in the vast majority of areas in the province. In particular, several agglomerations outside of the metropolitan areas have rapidly become seller’s markets. Selling times across the province were shorter compared to the same period one year earlier. For all property categories combined, it took an average of 66 days for a property to sell (-24 days). This is the lowest it has ever been since Centris began compiling statistics. For more detailed statistics for the province, click here.

VICTORIA — The University of Victoria says the head coach of its women's rowing program has resigned effective immediately. In a statement posted Monday on the school's varsity athletics website, it says the decision was reached by mutual agreement as Barney Williams and the athletic department determined it was in the best interest of the program so that "the circumstances associated with the 2018-19 season are not a continuing distraction." A member of that team filed a lawsuit last summer accusing Williams of demeaning treatment amounting to verbal abuse. The lawsuit alleges that Lily Copeland suffered injuries including stress-induced physiological symptoms and lost self-esteem, while also claiming that the university failed to provide her with a safe environment for learning and training. Williams and the university deny the allegations in a statement of defence, saying the training environment was not hostile and communication was always professional. None of the allegations or statements have been proven in court. In its statement Monday, the university says Williams has also had "some significant personal challenges" over the past three years and will take time to support his family. "Our main focus at this moment is squarely on the student-athletes," said Nick Clarke, director of varsity performance sport. "We recognize that this was difficult and unexpected news for them. We are committed to continuing to provide the student-athletes and other members of the team the necessary support and resources to focus on their health, safety, and academic achievement and to begin preparation for the seasons to come." In their response to Copeland's lawsuit, the defendants say the training was "competitive and rigorous intended to foster the athletic abilities'' of Copeland and the other coxswain. They say Williams's communication with Copeland was "respectful and appropriate for team coaching designed to maximize performance." Copeland's statement of claim filed in British Columbia Supreme Court alleges Williams would berate her inside a locked storage structure known as the "sauna," standing close to her and speaking aggressively. But the statement of defence denies the allegations. "At no time did Williams ever have a meeting with (Copeland) in any locked room, including the sauna," says the response, filed in November. "While Williams would have debriefing meetings with (Copeland) and others," occasionally in the sauna, "they were always professional, objective, and constructive intended to provide feedback," it states. "The door is often kept closed to retain heat ... but other athletes and coaches would regularly enter the room at any time." Copeland alleges in her lawsuit filed last July that she was often late or missed academic classes as a result of the so-called "sauna episodes." The lawsuit alleges the university failed to train or supervise Williams properly, didn't adopt appropriate coaching standards for varsity athletes or take adequate steps when Copeland complained informally to the associate director of sport in October 2018. She later made a formal complaint through the university's equity and human rights office. The school hired an adjudicator who found the coach's behaviour did not breach the campus discrimination and harassment policy. The university has since implemented a professional code for coaches and added various resources to support student-athletes. It also hired a director of varsity performance sport last fall to oversee varsity athletics "with a clear focus on safe sport," it said in an update posted online in December. Rowing Canada is also conducting an investigation into Williams. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 19, 2021. The Canadian Press
Simon Midgley, 32, and Richard Dyson, 38, were unlawfully killed by fire, a coroner sitting in England found.
SALEM, Ore. — A proposed gun storage law that would be among the toughest in the U.S. is headed for a vote in the Oregon Legislature, with backers saying it will save lives and opponents contending it could lead to deaths. Meanwhile, in Colorado, a less sweeping gun storage bill was signed into law Monday by Gov. Jared Polis., who said: “It’s a sensible measure to help avoid immeasurable heartbreak.” Colorado’s new law creates the offence of unlawful storage of a firearm if a person stores a gun knowing that a juvenile could access it without permission or if a resident of the premises is ineligible to possess a firearm. Oregon’s bill generated testimony from hundreds of people, mostly in writing because there wasn’t enough time to take all the oral testimony. A vote in Oregon's House of Representatives on the bill, initially scheduled for Monday, was pushed back by a week to enable Democratic representatives to work with the Senate “to guarantee the bill is on track to pass and be enacted,” said Hannah Kurowski, spokeswoman for the majority House Democrats. Among those testifying was Paul Kemp, whose brother-in-law Steve Forsyth was killed with a stolen gun in a mass shooting at a Portland-area shopping mall in 2012. “I will never forget the screams I heard when we had to tell my teenage nephew that his father had been killed at the mall,” Kemp said. But opponents say forcing people to keep guns locked up could waste precious moments if they need to defend themselves against armed intruders. Jim Mischel, of Sheridan, Oregon, described how his wife woke up when he was away one night in 1981. She heard a noise, went to investigate and saw that a man had broken into their home. She returned to the bedroom and tried to get to a pistol that was in a locked gun box in the nightstand. “She was unable to get the box unlocked and the pistol out before he got into the bedroom and threatened her with his gun,” Mischel said. “She has never recovered.” The debate in Oregon over guns mirrors similar discussions being held nationwide, with little movement on gun control even as the number of mass shootings climbs again as the nation eases coronavirus lockdown restrictions. Massachusetts is the only state that requires that all unattended firearms be stored with locking devices in place, according to the Giffords gun safety advocacy group. Penalties for violations can range from imprisonment to thousands of dollars in fines. States that have passed laws requiring some level of firearms safe storage include California, Connecticut and New York, said Allison Anderman, senior counsel at Giffords. Similar bills this session have failed in Illinois, Kentucky, Montana, New Mexico and Virginia, Anderman said. Oregon's bill mandates that gun owners secure unattended weapons with trigger locks or in locked compartments. Those who don't would be strictly liable for any injuries or property damage. If a minor gets ahold of an unsecured firearm, the gun's owner would face a maximum $2,000 fine. Tensions are running high as the Oregon Legislature considers this and other gun bills, even leading to death threats. Recently, six Republican state senators stayed for a vote on a different firearms bill, instead of doing a walkout in what has become a tactic for them to prevent a vote from taking place. That bill would ban guns from the Capitol and other state buildings and allow local jurisdictions to decide whether people with a concealed handgun license can bring guns into public buildings. They voted “nay” on the bill instead of joining a GOP boycott to deny a quorum. All six GOP senators who stayed got threatening emails. They have been turned over to the Oregon State Police for investigation “You should be shot,” said one of the emails. Advocates for the gun storage bill have said it would reduce suicides. Anderman said putting anything between a person’s impulse to take their own life and a gun could give the person a moment to reconsider. Elizabeth Klein testified in favour of the bill “on behalf of my deceased brother,” who killed himself with a gun. “My family is devastated by my brother’s gun suicide. It always seems preventable to me,” Klein wrote. Safe storage could also reduce school shootings. Minors who commit those attacks often obtain the gun from their home or the home of a relative or friend. Opponents have said the bill is an infringement on the constitutional right to bear arms. “As usual, the Second Amendment is under attack because attacking it is a perennial favourite with Democrats and has been for years,” said James Purvine of Eugene, Oregon, who testified in writing to the House Committee on Health Care about the bill. ___ Associated Press writer James Anderson in Denver contributed to this report. ___ Follow Andrew Selsky on Twitter at https://twitter.com/andrewselsky Andrew Selsky, The Associated Press
