Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn revealed Wednesday that a New York hospital has agreed to pay roughly $2.6 million to resolve allegations that a former physician associated with it performed and billed for unnecessary implantable defibrillator battery changes.
According to the office of Eastern District of New York U.S. Attorney Breon Peace, the settlement resulted from an internal inquiry by NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens, which voluntarily exposed its doctor’s behaviour to law enforcement. The hospital is one of ten that make up the NewYorkPresbyterian healthcare network in the vicinity of New York City.

For the benefit of the Pacific Islands, Washington should concentrate on climate change
Priorities for the region’s Pacific islands should be accepted by Washington, with climate change replacing superpower competition as the region’s most pressing security concern, according to the leaders of the region in Hawaii ahead of a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden this month.
Rather than having the White House and the United States develop a plan for the region, the governor of the U.S. state of Hawaii, David Ige, stated at a news conference after the closed-door meeting that “the sentiment shared by Pacific island leaders is that they are hopeful they would be able to work with the Biden administration on our strategy and our plan.” All Pacific island countries and territories have endorsed a regional plan known as the 2050 Blue Pacific Continent, according to Ige.
The 1895-built Arizona Ghost Town Museum has a $1.1 million price tag
The Arizona Ghost Town Museum, which was founded in a Pearce general store erected in 1895, is for sale for $1.1 million.
The Old Pearce Mercantile, the town’s longest-running company, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
According to the description, the two-story adobe building was completely restored in 2019 using supplies typical of the late 19th century.
According to the listing, “the uses for this property are virtually limitless: residence, company, museum, event place (wedding venue), or even wine tasting facility and store.”
A working blacksmith shop, storage spaces, a ramada, iron fencing, gates, and a brick courtyard are all features of the site. Cochise County has long been known as a place to find antiques, furniture, and collectibles.
Police looking into topless women who wore body paint to a Utah football game
Following their appearance at a University of Utah football game topless with only body paint covering their breasts, two female fans are the subject of a school police investigation.
Thousands of spectators were jammed into Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, including the unidentified women. According to a university spokeswoman posted on the school website, they covered themselves after a female officer requested that they put on shirts.
However, the spokeswoman stated that charges against the pair have not been ruled out and that campus police are conducting an investigation.
The spokeswoman stated that the students could also be reported to the Dean of Students for other disciplinary issues.
The two women may be seen in a KSL News video with paint on their bodies in the shape of a tank top with what seems to be a red “U” across their chest and torso. Some people, according to the TV station, are shocked that the young women entered the stadium at all to see the Utes defeat Southern Utah.
