Richard Shotwell/Invision/APProducer Harvey Weinstein has been fired from The Weinstein Company in the wake of new reports documenting decades of his alleged sexual harassment of former female employees and associates, the company’s board of directors announced Sunday.Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty Tuesday to rape and criminal sex act charges in New York.Weinstein quietly answered a series of yes and no questions from the judge asking if he understood his rights at the hearing in Manhattan after a grand jury indicted the former movie mogul last week on charges involving two women.One alleged victim, who has not been identified publicly, told investigators that Weinstein cornered her in a hotel room and raped her. The other accuser, former actress Lucia Evans, has gone public with her account of Weinstein forcing her to perform oral sex at his office in 2004. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults unless they come forward publicly.Dozens more women have accused him of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to assault.The 66-year-old Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, has challenged the credibility of his alleged victims and says his client is confident he is going to clear his name.Brafman called the rape allegation “absurd,” saying that the accuser and Weinstein had a decadelong, consensual sexual relationship that continued after the alleged 2013 attack.Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. has said it was predictable that Weinstein’s camp would attack the integrity of the women and of the legal system.Vance, a Democrat, came under public pressure from women’s groups to prosecute Weinstein after declining to do so in 2015, when an Italian model went to police to say Weinstein had groped her during a meeting.Police set up a sting in which the woman recorded herself confronting Weinstein and him apologizing for his conduct. But Vance decided there was not enough evidence to bring charges.Weinstein is out on $1 million bail. Share

Share NEW YORK – Do you have what it takes to travel ‘blind’ on a mystery trip? Ten intrepid travellers will soon find out.Intrepid Travel is calling for applications for a one-off ‘Uncharted Expedition’ that will see 10 travellers take a 2,200-mile trip into the unknown. Featuring towns and villages that can’t be found on Google Maps, the 22-day expedition traverses a route that Intrepid has never travelled before.The only known variables about the trip are the start and end points: Astana, Kazakhstan and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, respectively. Other than that, participants will be going in blind with only small hints of what’s to come.Intrepid Travel co-founder Darrell Wade says this ‘mystery’ trip is unlikely to appeal to anyone but the most courageous travellers.“You won’t know where you’re going, what you’ll see, where you’ll stay or what you’ll be eating. There’ll be long travel days, intermittent electricity and Wi-Fi, a few cold showers and a few treats along the way though, including fermented mare milk,” he said. “But it’s going to be a real adventure. One day you could be hiking through the world’s most remote and breathtaking landscapes, the next soothing your aching muscles in a sauna in the middle of nowhere.”More news: Venice to ban cruise ships from city centre starting next monthThe expedition, which will depart on June 30, 2019, will coincide with the company’s 30th anniversary.“When we first started out and we wanted to go somewhere new, we’d place a classified ad in the newspaper calling for intrepid people to join us on research trips,” added Wade. “Thirty years later, we go to more than 120 countries and we still get a thrill out of discovering new places with our most curious travellers.”The Uncharted Expedition is part of Intrepid Travel’s Expeditions range, a style of tours that the company still uses to discover new destinations and test new trip ideas. Participants will be asked to provide feedback, which will determine if the tour is added to Intrepid’s 2020 Expeditions offering.The Uncharted Expedition is available from today, at US$5,650 per person, excluding flights. Space is strictly limited to one departure only. For more details or to apply go to https://www.intrepidtravel.com/us/uncharted-expedition.
