A Boynton Beach man is facing a charge of aggravated child abuse, after authorities say he broke a child’s arm for dropping a kitten.Last Friday, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 30-year-old Brandon Rubin.According to the arrest report, he explained to deputies that the 5-year-old child and his ex-girlfriend’s 4-year-old son were “playing castle” using chairs.The man alleges he heard a loud noise while in another room of the home, and adds that he saw the 5-year-old old on the ground, exclaiming that his arm was hurting.Rubin says he took the child to a pediatrician and then to an emergency room. The boy eventually underwent surgery.The 4-year-old child told investigators that Rubin hurt his friend’s arm after Rubin “hit him really hard,” according to records.The fall, along with subsequent kicks, fractured the child’s arm and left marks “all over his upper body,” sheriff’s office records state.Meanwhile, the 5-year-old stated that Rubin grabbed him by the hand, put him in a headlock, then picked him up and dropped him to the ground, causing him to fall on his face and arm. He then told the boy to say that he fell while “playing castle.”Courtesy: Palm Beach Sheriff’s OfficeRubin’s former girlfriend told investigators that she was in the bedroom that morning, when she heard something hit the ground.She saw Rubin kick the crying 5-year-old. The woman adds that she noticed red marks “all over his upper body,” sheriff’s records state.In addition, Rubin reportedly told the woman that he was upset because the child threw one of Rubin’s two kittens on the ground.For that reason, he picked up the boy and dropped him “because he wanted him (to) see what it was like to be dropped to the ground,” she told authorities.Court records show a history of violent incidents for Brandon Rubin.Another former girlfriend documented numerous incidents of alleged physical abuse, “just in case anything serious happened to the point I disappear or something,” she wrote last year in a petition requesting a protection order against him. He has not faced criminal charges in any of those incidents.Authorities arrested Rubin four years ago, after he reportedly hit another woman, threatened to kill her, and then fired a gun into the ground.The state dropped certain weapons and aggravated assault charges in that case when he ended up pleading guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge.He is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

Peter Pham was the 5th employee hired at photo sharing site Photobucket. 18 months later the then giant site was acquired by Fox Interactive Media for a reported $300 million.

After just less than a year at Fox, Pham left to become the CEO of an innovative consumer expense optimization startup called BillShrink.Today Pham announced that he’s leaving BillShink to become Entrepreneur in Residence at Trinity Ventures. He’s got new ideas and a great track record; now he’ll have all the more financial backing and connections to put those ideas into play in a very big way.Trinity Ventures has backed a wide variety of companies that readers may be familiar with, including curation tool Posterous, crowd-sourced labor platform CrowdFlower, mobile browser SkyFire and many more. The firm makes 8 to 10 deals a year, according to a February profile by Stacey Higginbotham at Gigaom.

Roy Williams DabWhen you beat your rival on the road and clinch the seventh ACC regular season title in your tenure as head coach, there’s only one thing you can do: dab.

That’s one thing we can’t see coach K doing.
zoom Scandinavian liquefied natural gas (LNG) provider Skangas has signed an agreement with Norwegian oil and gas major Statoil for a small-scale LNG reload at the Klaipeda LNG Terminal in Lithuania. The company said that the reload will be undertaken in early January 2017 and will be “the first reload conducted at the terminal.”Skangas said that this could be a natural next step to further increase the support for the development of the small-scale market in Northern Europe.Statoil and Skangas have already concluded other agreements as part of their business relationship including a bunker supply agreement to the platform supply vessels delivered from several bases in Norway including possible ship-to-ship transfer.“We see this latest agreement as a confirmation of the two companies’ common interest to promote LNG in order to continuously develop the small-scale LNG market,” Tor Morten Osmundsen, CEO of Skangas, said.During the last years, Skangas has invested heavily in terminal infrastructure such as in Pori, Finland and in Lysekil, Sweden. During mid 2017, the company’s new LNG feeder and bunker ship Coralius will be ready to start providing ship-to-ship bunkering and freighter services in the area of Skagerrak, Kattegat and the Baltic Sea.
MONTREAL – Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. shares got a lift Monday after it announced a deal to unload its US$1 billion female sexual dysfunction drug to the company’s former owners for next to nothing.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Valeant’s shares closed up 4.75 per cent to C$15.43 in Monday trading.Under the deal, Valeant will receive a six per cent royalty on sales of Addyi starting 18 months from the signing of the sale agreement. The company declined to estimate how much it expects to realize.The agreement also ends a legal dispute between Valeant and the former owners of Sprout Pharmaceuticals.“Returning Sprout to its former owners will enable us to further streamline our portfolio and reduce complexity in our business,” Valeant chairman and CEO Joseph Papa stated in a news release issued a day before releases its third-quarter results.He said the company’s turnaround efforts are focused on its core businesses, including eye health, gastroenterology and dermatology.Valeant (TSX:VRX, NYSE:VRX) bought Sprout in 2015 for US$1 billion in cash, plus a share of future profits.Addyi is used by premenopausal women to enhance their libidos and improve their sex lives. It comes with a hefty sales price of US$800 per month.In connection with the sale, Valeant will provide a US$25-million loan to fund initial operating expenses. The sale is expected to close before the end of the year.Douglas Miehm of RBC Capital Markets said the transaction isn’t overly surprising given the disappointing sales of Addyi since its launch in October 2015.He estimates sales this year would be less than US$10 million, far less than Valeant’s earlier forecast of up to US$150 million that last year it said it couldn’t achieve.“However, the company will need to write off a large part of the US$836MM in intangible asset value plus contingent consideration associated with the drug, making the optics particularly poor,” he wrote in a report.Valeant shares have plunged since questions about its business model first emerged two years ago, when they traded for more than $300 per share.The company has since faced a string of lawsuits, including one from its former chief executive, as well as swelling debt levels, losses of more than US$2.4 billion and scrutiny over its drug pricing practices.With its recently announced US$125 million debt repayment, Valeant has reached its goal of repaying US$5 billion of debt about four months ahead of its February 2018 target, wrote Neil Maruoka of Canaccord Genuity.
