Politicians agree to public vote following mass protests and international concern over plans to water down anti-graft legislation
Romania’s parliament has agreed to hold a referendum on fighting official corruption following pressure from public protests.
An estimated 70,000 people took to the streets on Sunday for the 13th consecutive night of anti-government demonstrations. Those campaigning have accused the government of attempting to water down anti-corruption laws.
SOUND BEACH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Long Island couple thought it would just be a few teenagers hanging out at their house recently, but they ended up in trouble with the law.
CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan talked with the couple in Sound Beach, in Suffolk County.
“Very upset about the situation — very upset,” said Farnelle Marseille.
Marseille and her husband, Charles Suomi, were stunned to be arrested after hosting a house party where a teenage girl was taken to the hospital after drinking too much this past Saturday night.
“My kids told me they were going to have some of their friends over,” Suomi said. “I didn’t realize it was – it got out of hand,” Suomi said. “It is hard to try to keep that many people – you know, like your eye on everything.”
The parents said their children initially invited 30 friends from Miller Place High School. The tweets and Facebook alerts spread, and soon, police said they got a call that 100 drunken teens were milling around the parking lot of the convenience store across the street.
“My main focus was the store — that was it,” said the convenience store manager. “I wasn’t allowing kids in the store.”
Marseille said she and Suomi were blamed unfairly.
“I’m just so angry about the situation because they portrayed us like it’s our fault that this happened,” she said. “The kids already were drinking before they even got here. We were getting rid of them when they were drinking, by the time the cops got here.”
The Social Host Law makes adults legally responsible for knowingly allowing illegal underage drinking.
In the past, parents in Great Neck were charged when three teens fell unconscious because of severe intoxication.
“All these kids came from all over. We don’t know them. We don’t know who they are, and they show up, and I called ambulances because there were kids falling down outside, and I did the right thing. I got in touch with their parents. This is unbelievable. I have nothing else to say,” Did Hutt said after the August 2016 incident.
Back in 2011, police said after teens who were drinking stumbled away from a Dix Hills home, a 16-year-old was killed crossing the parkway. The parents were charged.
Suomi was asked if he would ever host such a party again.
“Definitely not, definitely not,” he said. Of the girl who got sick, he added, “I’m very sorry for that. I mean, I’m glad she’s all right.”
Marseille and Suomi were issued field appearance tickets and will be arraigned in district court at a later date. They face a fine of up to $500.

Today, Baltimore bred indie-electro rock mainstays Animal Collective announced the followup to their 2016 EP, Painting With. Titled The Painters EP, the newest offering for the decades-old crew is set to release via Domino Records on Friday, February 17. It’s no matter of casual fate that the debut near coincides with the anniversary of Animal Collective’s 10th studio album release. Though it continues in the same ethos as Painting With,The Painters EP features three new offerings – all of which were conceived in 2016 and kept in the archive until the right moment.
Group members Panda Bear, Geologist, Deakin and Avey Tare also included a studio recording of the song “Jimmy Mack,” which was first made famous in the 1960s by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. The album artwork comes courtesy of Brian DeGraw, a musician and artist who also provided work for Painting With.
As expected, the video is kinda bonkers in the best way possible. The constant kaleidoscope of shifting text, color and movement matches the pitch of the song flawlessly. Press play to enjoy, and stay sane kids.

If you’re a fan of bodybuilding I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of the various champions of our sport, and how different all of their arms look. Basically all IFBB pros have absolutely huge arms, but it is amazing how uniquely all of them are shaped. Some guys have extreme peaks on their biceps, while others have more length and/or roundness. Many pros have biceps or triceps that are rather short, inserting well before they reach the elbow, while others have muscle bellies with seemingly no end. Look at photos of Coleman vs. Levrone, Arnold vs. Lou, or Kai vs. Wolf, and you will see six pairs of utterly massive, but yet completely different looking arms.
The question is, did all of these unique shapes come about from various training techniques or special exercises, or are they simply a function of genetics? The answer is, “a little of one and a lot of the other.” Yes, the role of genetics is huge, as we can do nothing about how our muscles insert, nor how they are shaped (for the most part). However, what we can do is utilize certain exercises that either target a specific “head” of a muscle, or create the illusion that you have enhanced a specific portion of a muscle. In other words, while we cannot alter the genetic map for specific muscles, we can change the overall look of the landscape by throwing a little extra dirt on just the right spots.
One of the greatest desires of most of the bodybuilders I meet is to achieve a more dramatic “peak” on the biceps, and in order to do so, you must “specialize.” “Specialize on what,” you ask? The brachialis my peak-seeking friends! This often overlooked muscle lies underneath the biceps, and when fully developed, looks like a thick knot of muscle that pops out of the side of the upper arm when they are flexed and viewed from the rear.
Now, the problem with the brachialis is that while doing most curling movements, it is a weak flexor of the upper arm. “So what do I do?” I’m glad you asked! What needs to be done is to put the biceps in a mechanically weak position when performing curling movements, so that the brachialis needs to be activated to a much greater degree. Like I said, most curling movements will not “get-er-done,” as it takes specific hand positions and/or curling angles to force the brachialis to take the brunt of the load.
Now, when it comes to building truly stand-out arms you must remember that the triceps are responsible for about 2/3 of the overall size. And lets face it, we want guns that impress when they are simply hanging down at our sides, as walking around flexing is just not socially responsible (and likely quite exhausting)! So how do we create this appearance? By maximally developing the inner, or long head of the triceps.This is the section responsible for that “sweep” under the biceps in a front double arm pose, and the dramatic thickness on the back of the upper arm seen in a back lat-spread pose.
To best target the long head you must choose exercises that force the elbows up by the ears throughout the movement. EMG studies have shown that this is the optimal arm positioning to utilize when looking for the strongest activation of inner (long) triceps head fibers.
