The "Full House" star shared a snapshot from the '90s of himself and Olsen, declaring: “They grow up so fast."
The analog and mixed signal IP market is expected to register a CAGR of 14. 5% during the forecast period from 2021 to 2026. Over the past decade, the integrated circuits have become increasingly complex and expensive.New York, March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Analog and Mixed Signal IP Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030472/?utm_source=GNW The industry started to embrace new design and reuse methodologies that are collectively referred to as system-on-chip (SoC), System-in-Package (SiP), and System-on-Board (SoB) design. With this shift toward miniaturization, the companies incorporating such solutions started facing the challenges for the re-usage and integration issues encountered in this paradigm shift. To solve such problems, IP blocks emerged as the most prominent solution for the industry end-users.- The growth of 5G technology is expected to unleash a massive IoT ecosystem that would allow networks to serve billions of connected devices worldwide. For Instance, according to Ericsson’s mobility report, more than 10 million 5G mobile subscriptions are anticipated globally by the end of 2019. This is indicative of the fact that the market is poised to grow throughout the forecast period.- As per the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, the number of connected devices is expected to reach 50.1 billion in 2020 compared to that of 34.8 billion connected devices in 2018. Every IoT or IIoT device contains sophisticated microchip designs that permit devices to achieve remote connectivity. Moreover, as the IoT is poised to grow significantly, it is expected to impact the growth of the semiconductor industry.- As CMOS technologies are scaling to higher densities, the ability to design and integrate the complex mixed-signal and RF intellectual property (IP) is becoming a reality. Moreover, RF and analog/mixed-signal (RF-AMS) IP content is the next significant enhancement to the system-on-a-chip (SoC) design. However, very few products using this level of integration have been announced.- Further, in November 2019, Accellera Systems Initiative which is an electronics industry organization that is focused on the adoption and development of electronic design automation and intellectual property standards announced the formation of the Universal Verification Methodology Analog/Mixed-Signal Working Group. The primary aim of the new group is to develop a measure that will provide a unified analog/mixed-signal verification methodology that will be based on UVM to improve the verification of AMS integrated circuits and systems.- The current semiconductor market’s downturn is primarily owing to the recent virus outbreak’s impact on the entire industry. The lockdowns that have been enforced by the spread of COVID-19 across the globe have not only affected the manufacturing of devices but have also dragged the consumer’s demand. Although the full impact of the COVID-19 is still unknown, the effect across the electronics value chain, starting from the materials to final products, will be affected significantly. The COVID-19 is also highlighting the potential risks and vulnerability of the current electronics and semiconductor value chain. It is challenging the industry to consider the transformation of its global supply chain model, which, to a certain extent, will affect analog and mixed signal IP market.Key Market TrendsTelecommunication is Expected Hold a Significant Share- Telecommunication infrastructure is one of the key factors driving the market, primarily owing to the advent of the 4G network and some parts of the 5G network. Manufacturers of wireless infrastructure, especially 4G and 5G networks, are continuously reducing the size and cost of their newly installed wireless infrastructure while holding towards the high standards of performance, functionality, and quality of service.- 5G Infrastructure is expected to revolutionize the domain of various broadband services and is expected to empower connectivity across multiple end-user verticals. According to GSMA, around 45% urban coverage level has been achieved for 5G networks in the new deployment trails. Countries like China and India are also planning to implement the 5G network by 2020, and the development of 5G networks requires large amounts of capital investment in 5G capable infrastructure.- Significant players like Intel have announced a new system on chip (SoC) designed specifically for next-generation mobile base stations in Jan 2019. Similarly, Copper-clad laminate (CCL) specialist Iteq expects orders for 5G infrastructure to pull in from China. The country is investing significantly in the development and deployment of 5G services with the government and local players like Huawei actively taking part- Zinwell, a leading manufacturer of wired and wireless broadcast and broadband communication equipment has integrated MaxLinear’s AirPHY multi-gigabit modem technology with jjPlus’s latest 65W magnetic resonant wireless power module integrated with analog mixed-signal IP into its 3rd generation ZRA-003 device, which can transfer power and gigabit data through glass windows or structural walls up to 20cm thick. The solution will enhance the demand of the analog mixed-signal IP integration as the solution will enable 4G/LTE or 5G millimeter wave wireless broadband service with gigabit speeds.North America is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share- The demand for the analog and digital mixed-signal IP is driven by the growing utilization of these products as building blocks. The telecommunication sector in the US has been actively investing in 5G infrastructure. The end-user industry in the country accounts for the significant portion of the global consumption of 5G technology. In the North American region, the US dominates the regional 5G market, regarding investment, adoption, and applications.- The nature of the 5G superfast wireless networks is expected to provide the needed primary impetus to the telecom industry, which has been experiencing slow growth. The US Telecom Association has estimated that the US telecom operators are expected to spend around USD 104 billion by 2025. It is expected to be essential for the telecom service providers to upgrade existing 4G networks to the upcoming 5G standards and, consequently, execute the full installation of 5G wireless services.- In October 2019, Analogue announced the launch of its Analogue Game Boy Pocket, which is a modern version of the retro-gaming device. The critical component the company has introduced is the second FPGA (apart from one for image processing to deliver high-resolution image on its 10X high-resolution display compared to the original Game Boy). This second FPGA enables the retro-gaming community to build and port their cores to run other games on the Pocket, similar to how the MiSTER FPGA device works.- Canada is expected to provide sufficient expenditure and funding for its military programs (including clothing). The Canadian government has been focusing on the Integrated Soldier System Project, which is assimilating the soldier suit with electronic devices, weapons, and feed communication among soldiers as they move through the battlefield. This is expected to impact the market’s growth positively in the region.Competitive LandscapeThe analog and mixed signal IP is quite fragmented as the global players are engaged in integrating the signal in various applications like consumer electronics, automotive, etc., which gives an intense rivalry among the competitors. Key players are Cadence Design Systems Inc., Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, Global foundries Inc., and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.- May 2020 - Synopsys, Inc. announced the broadest portfolio of high-quality IP on TSMC’s 5nm process technology for high-performance computing system-on-chips (SoCs). The DesignWare IP portfolio on the TSMC process, encompassing interface IP for the most widely used high-speed protocols and foundation IP, accelerates the development of SoCs for high-end cloud computing, AI accelerators, networking, and storage applications.- February 2020 - Marvell and Analog Devices, Inc. announced a technology collaboration is leveraging Marvell’s 5G digital platform and ADI’s wideband RF transceiver technology to deliver fully optimized solutions for 5G base stations. As part of the partnership, the companies will offer fully integrated 5G digital front-end (DFE) ASIC solutions with tightly coupled RF transceivers. They will collaborate to develop next-generation Radio Unit (RU) solutions, including baseband and RF technology optimized for a diverse set of functional splits and architectures.Reasons to Purchase this report:- The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format- 3 months of analyst supportRead the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06030472/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

NEW YORK — The NFL has hired Maia Chaka as the first Black female official in league history. She will work games during the 2021 season. “I am honoured to be selected as an NFL official,” Chaka said. “But this moment is bigger than a personal accomplishment. It is an accomplishment for all women, my community, and my culture.” Chaka enters the NFL after working in the Pac-12 and Conference USA. She was selected in 2014 for the NFL’s Officiating Development Program, which identifies college officiating talent with the goal of showing them some of the same experiences as NFL officials before determining if they have the ability to succeed as an NFL official. “Maia’s years of hard work, dedication and perseverance — including as part of the NFL Officiating Development Program — have earned her a position as an NFL official,” said Troy Vincent, who oversees the league's football operations. “As we celebrate Women’s History Month, Maia is a trailblazer as the first Black female official and inspires us toward normalizing women on the football field.” A graduate of Norfolk State, Chaka earned her bachelor’s in education in 2006. She is a health and physical education teacher in the Virginia Beach public school system. The NFL did not specify which officiating position she will work. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL The Associated Press

LONDON — The timing couldn’t be worse for Harry and Meghan. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will finally get the chance to tell the story behind their departure from royal duties directly to the public on Sunday, when their two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey is broadcast. But back home in Britain, events have conspired to overshadow the tale of a prince and his American bride. On top of the pandemic and record economic slump, Prince Philip, Harry’s 99-year-old grandfather, has been hospitalized for almost three weeks and is now recovering from a heart procedure. “Harry and Meghan are hugely popular,’’ Pauline Maclaran, a professor of marketing and author of “Royal Fever: The British Monarchy in Consumer Culture,” told The Associated Press. “But I think that some people who might otherwise have supported them will find this just a little bit distasteful, that they’re drawing all this attention to themselves … just at this time when Prince Philip appears to be quite seriously ill.” Though it is the choice of CBS when to air its pre-recorded interview, critics are already lining up to deride it as a brand-building exercise by the pair, who left Britain saying they wanted to live a normal life but have been accused of continuing to use their royal status to open doors and make money. The sit-down with America’s queen of celebrity interviews is a chance for the couple to explain what led them to quit royal life, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media. A book about their departure, “Finding Freedom,” also alleges that senior royals had little respect for Meghan, a biracial former actor, and that courtiers treated her badly. Pre-released clips have already shown Harry talking about his fears that history would repeat itself after his mother, Princess Diana, died in a car crash while pursued by paparazzi. In another clip from the interview, Winfrey asks Meghan how she feels about the palace “hearing you speak your truth today?” “I don’t know how they could expect that, after all of this time, we would still just be silent if there was an active role that the firm is playing in perpetuating falsehoods about us,” the duchess replies. “The firm” is a nickname for the royal family, sometimes used with affection and sometimes with a note of criticism. Ahead of the broadcast, relations with the palace are increasingly strained. First there was Queen Elizabeth II’s decision to strip Harry and Meghan of the handful of royal patronages they had retained in the one-year trial period following their departure last year. The couple responded with a terse statement promising to live a life of service — a move many in the U.K. saw as disrespectful to the queen, as she usually has the final word. Then on Wednesday, the palace said it was launching a human resources investigation after a newspaper reported that a former aide had accused Meghan of bullying staff in 2018. One of the authors of “Finding Freedom,’’ Omid Scobie, compared the recent commentary about Harry and Meghan in the British media to the Salem Witch Trials, while noting Americans have had more sympathy them. His tweet linked to a discussion on the U.S. television program “The View,’’ including comments from Meghan McCain, a conservative columnist and daughter of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain. “I think we can’t ignore the elephant of the room that there’s probably a racial angle to this,’’ McCain said. “There’s a lot of racism directed at this woman, in a lot of different ways she threatens a lot of people in the patriarchy. ... It just looks like they are bullying her in the press.’’ It was all supposed to be so different. At the time Harry started dating Meghan, the British public seemed smitten with the beautiful young woman who starred for seven seasons on the U.S. television drama “Suits.” When they married in 2018, newspapers were filled with optimistic stories about how the energetic couple would help make the monarchy relevant for a new, multicultural Britain. But less than two years later they decamped to North America. After a brief stay in Canada, the couple settled in Meghan’s home state of California, buying a house in the exclusive Santa Barbara County enclave of Montecito that reportedly cost more than $14 million. Among their neighbours: Oprah Winfrey. Then came deals with Netflix and Spotifiy, reportedly worth millions. The commercial deals and headline-grabbing amounts are uncomfortable for the royal family, which has devoted itself to public service as a justification for its wealth and privilege. The queen, among the richest people in Britain, has spent her life supporting charities, cutting ribbons at hospitals and travelling the world to represent her country. “The main thing that the royal family is so good at is serving the nation, serving the nation and the Commonwealth, basically serving us rather than serving themselves,’’ royal historian Hugo Vickers told ITV News. “And I’m sorry, if you’re sitting in an $11 million mansion in California and making fantastic deals, that is trading in on your royal heritage. And it’s all wrong, frankly.” Others are concerned that the interview will include damaging revelations about the royal family. The royals rarely grant interviews, and when they do the questions are usually narrowly focused on specific issues. For instance, Harry and his brother, William, have tried to remove the stigma from mental health problems by talking about their own struggles after the death of their mother. More free-ranging interviews have often gone badly. Interviews with Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Harry and William’s parents, around the time of their divorce led to embarrassing revelations about infidelity. More damaging for the palace was the interview Prince Andrew, Harry’s uncle, did with the BBC in 2019. Andrew tried to address rumours about his links with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, but he was forced to give up royal duties after failing to show empathy for Epstein’s victims. “I think it’s a bigger danger than the Prince Andrew car-crash interview,’’ Maclaran said of the Oprah interview, “because I think that Meghan is going to get a lot of sympathy, particularly from American audiences, about her position being untenable.” Regardless of what’s actually said, the interview is a threat to the stature of the monarchy because it further blurs the line between celebrity and royalty — tarnishing the royal mystique, Maclaran said. Late night chat show host James Corden underscored the threat to the royal brand during a tongue-in-cheek segment with Harry broadcast last week in which Corden suggested the prince and his wife might move into the mansion that provided the backdrop for the 1990s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” “If it was good enough for the Fresh Prince, it’s good enough for a real prince,” Corden said. The line put Harry, whose father and brother will be king one day, on the same footing as a TV character who fled west Philadelphia for a posh life in Southern California. Royal watchers wonder what could possibly be next. “It’s just such a mess,” said Penny Junor, who has written several books about the royals, including a biography of Harry. “I don’t think there are going to be any winners in it.” Danica Kirka, The Associated Press
A sharply divided U.S. Senate on Friday accelerated its march toward passage of President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, as it began what was expected to be a long debate over a slew of amendments on how that money would be spent. Following a night in which Senate clerks spent nearly 11 hours reading every word of the 628-page Democratic bill, partisan fevers were on display in the closing hours of debate that will then open the bill to amendments that are likely to offered into the weekend. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer thanked Senate staff for enduring the early-morning ordeal and added, "As for our friend from Wisconsin, I hope he enjoyed his Thursday evening."

It was Andrew Cuomo’s Emmy-winning performance: daily televised coronavirus briefings in which the New York governor projected competence and compassion, helping to calm a nervous nation. Now, the many Americans whose positive impressions of Cuomo were formed during the height of the pandemic are getting a close-up of a very different governor, one accused of underreporting COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes, sexually harassing female staffers and bullying colleagues. To New Yorkers who have watched the Democrat for years, however, the allegations are consistent with how Cuomo maintains his tight grip on power. The same forceful, micromanaging, even adversarial style that appeared to serve him well in the pandemic, they say, could lead to his undoing. “The national audience who looked to him for guidance and comfort in the past year don’t want to see someone they respect fall from grace," said Fordham University political scientist Christina Greer. “But there are a lot of New Yorkers who have known Cuomo and his behaviour who are saying it’s time for his comeuppance.” The three-term governor, 63, said Wednesday that he would not resign, and urged those demanding his departure to await the results of an independent investigation into the harassment allegations, overseen by Democratic state Attorney General Letitia James. Cuomo apologized for making women uncomfortable but denied touching anyone inappropriately. He said he regularly greets people with a hug and kiss, a habit acquired from his late father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo. “I understand sensitivities have changed. Behavior has changed,” Cuomo said. “I get it and I’m going to learn from it.” Former aide Lindsey Boylan, 36, accused Cuomo of persistent harassment, including kissing her without consent and suggesting a game of strip poker aboard his state-owned jet. Another former aide, Charlotte Bennett, 25, said Cuomo asked if she ever had sex with older men and said he was fine dating “anyone above the age of 22.” A third woman, not employed by the state, told The New York Times that Cuomo put his hands on her face and asked if he could kiss her just moments after they met at a 2019 wedding. Cuomo’s administration is also under federal investigation after it underreported deaths in nursing homes following his decision to open those facilities to recovering COVID-19 patients. The state, for months, declined to say how many nursing home patients who had died after being transferred to hospitals, even reportedly editing the number out of a report released in July. State health officials say the statistic was withheld because of questions about its accuracy. Assembly member Ron Kim, a Democrat who blasted Cuomo over those deaths, said Cuomo called and threatened to “destroy” him if he didn’t retract his criticism. Cuomo has denied saying those words. He's also defended the state's record on nursing home deaths, though he said it should have moved faster to release the data. But the threatening language sounded familiar to Republican Rob Astorino, who challenged Cuomo in 2014. Cuomo’s campaign obtained, digitally altered and used a family photo of Astorino and his 11-year-old son at a Miami Dolphins football game in an attack ad to question Astorino’s loyalty to New York. “He has screamed at me, cursed at me, threatened me: It’s a pattern of behaviour with him, and it’s the worst-kept secret in New York,” Astorino said. “On a good day, he’s a bully. On a bad day, he’s what we’re seeing now.” Cuomo refused to even say hello to his 2014 primary opponent, Zephyr Teachout, when she approached him at a parade, later joking he didn't see her. In 2018, a national organization for dwarfs lodged a complaint after Cuomo’s campaign repeatedly mocked his opponent’s height. Senior aides have adopted Cuomo's abrasive approach, berating journalists and lawmakers who question the administration. In 2019, when three female lawmakers criticized Cuomo for holding a $25,000-a-couple fundraiser amid state budget negotiations, Cuomo’s spokesperson dismissed them as “ idiots,” adding profanity. “The irony of this whole thing is: If he’s so tough, then why is his skin so thin?” asked one of those lawmakers, Democratic state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi. Biaggi is among several lawmakers from both parties calling for Cuomo's resignation. Mario Cuomo 's legacy hangs heavily over the younger Cuomo's career. Andrew Cuomo got his start in politics as his father's aide and campaign manager, before serving as U.S. housing secretary under Bill Clinton and state attorney general. If he wins a fourth term in 2022, he will surpass his father's tenure. While he started as a centrist, he’s since moved to the left — though many progressive lawmakers still view Cuomo with distrust. The governor, a fan of muscle cars who talks proudly of being a son of Queens, has insisted his job requires toughness. And his forceful personality has helped him notch an impressive list of victories on same-sex marriage, minimum wage, tax cuts, gun control and a long list of economic development projects. Infrastructure — big, concrete and tangible — is a particular interest. Cuomo has overseen overhauls of New York City's airports and train stations, subway and rail expansions, and a replacement for the Tappan Zee Bridge, which was named for his father. His hands-on approach won him plaudits — and a book deal — in the pandemic's early days, when his briefings showcased both his practicality and a more human side, as a father and son worried about his family — augmented by viral appearances on his brother's primetime CNN show as New York bore the deadly brunt of U.S. cases. “He is a bully, and he's everything they say he is,” said Barbara Bartoletti, who worked in Albany for four decades as legislative director for the League of Women Voters, a government watchdog often at odds with Cuomo. “But as a New Yorker, I'm glad we did have him during the height of the pandemic." With his pugilistic nature, Cuomo was never likely to resign without a fight, Greer said. Pressure could subside, too, as the investigation drags out. The diverging fates of two fellow Democrats could prove instructive: While Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam survived his 2019 scandal over old blackface photos — even campaigning, a year later, for the same politicians who initially sought his resignation — U.S. Sen. Al Franken's quick departure in response to his own harassment allegations has since been second-guessed. “Northam was able to ride it out, while a lot of Democrats think Franken left prematurely,” Greer said. “I don’t think Cuomo goes quietly in the night. I think he just waits, and hopes the storm passes.” David Klepper, The Associated Press
Glenwood Canyon’s most popular hiking trail will be reopening to visitors on Saturday, May 1. Hanging Lake Trail guidelines and adjustments will include a temporary reduction in hiker capacity as well as assisted self-parking for permit holders.Glenwood Springs, Colo. (March 5, 2021), March 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Officials of the city of Glenwood Springs and US Forest Service have announced that they will reopen the Hanging Lake Trail to permitted hikers following initial assessments and trail stabilization in the aftermath of last summer’s Grizzly Creek Fire. Reservations to hike Hanging Lake will be available starting April 1, 2021, for the season at visitglenwood.com/HangingLake. “While the Grizzly Creek Fire thankfully passed over this nationally recognized Natural Landmark, there were clean-up and safety measures that were necessary before the trail was able to be reopened to the public,” said Leanne Veldhuis, district ranger for the Eagle-Holy Cross Ranger District. Veldhuis, who represents the White River National Forest, is among a group of stakeholder representatives that also includes the City of Glenwood Springs, Glenwood Springs tourism, Colorado Department of Transportation, and private businesses. “Last year, prior to the fire, a special management plan was put into place for COVID social distancing,” said Lisa Langer, director of tourism promotion for Glenwood Springs. “Part of that plan will remain in place through the summer, including the assisted self-parking for permitted hikers.” Langer added that the city plans to hold off on the shuttle service until later in the season and will reevaluate as the pandemic situation improves. To make navigating the trail as safe as possible, there are designated passing zones and hand-sanitizer stations along the trail. Purchase Hanging Lake Hiking Permits Online The widely successful Hanging Lake permit reservation system which was implemented in 2019 will resume for the 2021 season. Visitors can purchase permits online at visitglenwood.com/HangingLake for $12 per person. Hikers can either self-drive and park at the Hanging Lake Rest Area; or bike or hike along the Glenwood Canyon Recreation Path to the trailhead. Both permits are identical in cost and time slot inventory. All hikers will be asked to present their permit upon arrival at the Hanging Lake Rest Area; only those with permits will be allowed to park. The Hanging Lake Partners caution that health and safety measures may be revised throughout the high season. Hanging Lake hikers will always receive the most current updates and safety procedures with their permit confirmation email. Plan for Summertime Travel in Glenwood Canyon Construction impacts will be much lighter on Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon compared to Summer 2020. To ensure safety, motorists should plan for occasional lane closures, obey reduced speeds and drive with caution. Motorists should also pay close attention to weather forecasts, due to the potential for debris flow, mudslides or rockfall. If there is rain in the forecast, be prepared for a safety closure in Glenwood Canyon that will affect I-70, rest areas and the Glenwood Canyon bike path. Drivers should refer to cotrip.org for the latest road conditions and route options. CDOT advises motorists to be wary of using GPS navigation apps for searching alternate routes, as not all platforms provide up-to-date information. Travelers should avoid using county or forest roads as alternate routes, as road conditions may not be favorable. CDOT also recommends that travelers bring an emergency kit, with water, snacks, a flashlight and a blanket, as mountain conditions often change suddenly in the fall season. About Hanging Lake Hanging Lake is designated a National Natural Landmark located in the White River National Forest in Glenwood Canyon about seven miles (11 km) from Glenwood Springs. The 1.2-mile (1.9 km) path is steep and leads to a crystal-clear lake and waterfalls. Because of its rare and fragile shoreline composed of travertine deposits, it is considered a rare geological wonder. To enhance the hiking experience, prevent damage to the trail and protect the environment for future generations, a reservation system was implemented in 2019. ### About Glenwood Springs The Land of Water, where world-famous hot springs meet year-round outdoor adventures.

ROCKLAND, Maine — A New York-based copyright holder that sued the late artist Robert Indiana a day before his death has reached a settlement with his estate and the foundation set up to transform the artist's home into museum. The settlement agreement brings the legal wrangling over the estate of the artist known for his iconic “LOVE” series closer to an end. Details were not released, but the agreement “should fully resolve all claims” stemming from Morgan Art Foundation’s lawsuit that accused Indiana and his caretaker of violating a licensing agreement, according to a letter that was filed Wednesday in federal the court in New York City. The agreement would become effective in May upon settling of “one condition” that must be completed, wrote Luke Nikas, Morgan's attorney. The lawsuit by the Morgan Art Foundation was filed in New York the day before Indiana’s death on May 19, 2018, at age 89 on Vinalhaven Island, 15 miles (25 kilometres) off Rockland, Maine. It accused Indiana’s caretaker and a New York-based art publisher of taking advantage of Indiana. The lawsuit contends they violated its agreement with Indiana by illegally producing other art. The art publisher, Michael McKenzie, is not included in the proposed settlement and is in arbitration. A foundation intends to turn his island home into a museum to display his art once the litigation is resolved. Millions of dollars have been spent on legal fees since Indiana's death, and the state attorney general's office is demanding an accounting of the estate's spending. The Associated Press
