Dad Finds Out About Daughter’s Abusive BF, Takes Matters Into Own Hands

1-copyA young woman in Missouri was brutally beaten by her boyfriend, causing her to permanently lose vision in one eye. In response, the woman’s father is said to have offered a $500 reward to anyone that can provide information on the whereabouts of the suspect.Chelsea Simmons, 20, was nearly killed by her boyfriend, Cedric Powe, 27, during an altercation.


“Apparently he choked her until she passed out, brought her back, then choked her again and continually stomped on her head,” said Simmons’ stepmother, Melissa Zack. “She’s scared and she probably will be forever.”Powe, known by friends as Moe, reportedly fled to the south side of St. Louis. Mark Zack, Simmons’ father, offered $500 to anybody that could provide police with information that will help them track down his daughter’s attacker.have to worry about it happening to her ever again,” said Simmons’ stepmother.“He needs to be caught so that this doesn’t happen to anyone else, and I don’t have to worry about it happening to her ever again,” said Simmons’ stepmother.Doctors say that Simmons was just minutes away from certain death, and will likely endure pain from this incident for the rest of her life.

 Powe has a lengthy history of criminal activity, including a 2008 arrest that resulted in a domestic battery charge, along with obstruction of justice, reports WJBD. Powe pleaded guilty to the obstruction of justice charge and was sentenced to one year in prison, but because of his guilty plea, the domestic battery charge was dismissed.
 According to reports, Simmons filed a restraining order against Powe on Dec. 27, but both the families and authorities realize that may not necessarily protect the young woman. Powe has a history of violating an order of protection, including incidents in 2008 and 2009, reports MVN News.

Choosing a Graduate School: Alumni Reflect on Their Selection Process

How does a prospective student make a choice among graduate schools? Here, seven former students tell U.S. News why they chose to attend their particular schools.
Why I Picked Case Western Reserve University’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing (Cleveland)
Maureen Sweeney, 2012 graduate and associate medical director
Cleveland has a world-class health care system, and one of Case Western Reserve University nursing school’s strengths is that it finds amazing clinical placements for students. Many schools require you to find your own. I wanted to go into mental health and was able to do psychiatric rotations at the Cleveland Clinic and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Case Western works closely with each student’s preceptor, or clinical instructor, to ensure you get great feedback as you gain real-world experience. The program also goes beyond the basics of treatment and medications. It taught me how to be a leader, whether supervising a team or helping direct a health care system.
The school ensures students are prepared for changes in nursing requirements and is vocal about the need for national uniformity in nursing education. Case gave me exactly the prep I needed for my current role as associate medical director of a community mental health facility.
Why I Picked the University of Virginia Darden School of Business
Annie Medaglia, 2015 graduate and co-founder of DreamWakers
After working at the State Department, I sought a business school that combined public and private sector thinking to more innovatively address 21st-century policy challenges. I chose the Darden School of Business because it emphasizes general management, teaching quality, entrepreneurial thinking and community.
Through Darden’s case method – students solve a company’s problems with a product launch, for example – I’ve developed the problem-solving skills to start a business or to innovate from within.
Initiative is encouraged. When I proposed the Tri-Sector Leadership Fellows program to bring law, public policy and business students together to learn from distinguished leaders, the school and classmates moved mountains to make it happen. The i.Lab, Darden’s startup incubator, provides students with advice and connections that enabled a friend and me to launch DreamWakers, a nonprofit that uses technology to connect students in high-need schools with professionals to discuss different careers. Through Darden, I feel that I can have a transformative impact on any environment.
Why I Picked the University of Michigan—Ann Arbor’s College of Engineering
Frank Sedlar, 2015 graduate and owner of Vela Aerial
University of Michigan’s College of Engineering had several strengths that appealed to me. In my area, civil engineering, professors are often professionals actively carrying on projects, many with an international focus – a particular interest of mine.
The experiential learning opportunities are superb. Instead of a formal thesis, students are encouraged to engage in independent research. For example, I studied how precipitation into Lake Superior affects the availability of water in the region.
I prototyped a low-cost water sensor to measure the rise of water levels in connecting rivers and canals. My prototype later became the basis of a successful Fulbright scholarship application for me to devise an early flood-warning system in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The school gave me an engineering grant after my first year to study flooding in Indonesia more closely, and it helped me build language studies into my master’s program. All of these experiences gave me a great foundation to start my own drone and aerial mapping company and to continue my engineering work in Indonesia.
Why I Picked Pepperdine University Law School (Malibu, California)
Jeffrey Majors, 2013 graduate and operations attorney
Before law school, I served in the military and earned my master’s in crisis and emergency management, where I learned how critical it was to solve problems before they deteriorate into conflicts. That’s something Pepperdine University, through its Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, excels at teaching.
Through Straus, Pepperdine trains future lawyers to be peacemakers, negotiators and problem solvers – rare and in-demand skills. Offerings range from negotiation to specialized courses in securities arbitration. Students can combine a J.D. with a certificate or a master’s in dispute resolution. I chose the latter.
Pepperdine provides plenty of clinical experience, like the Investor Advocacy Clinic, where I argued cases for low-income investors against broker-dealers. Straus gave me a better understanding of how to manage disputes, reduce risk and find leverage points in negotiations. I use these skills every day now as an operations attorney for Schlumberger, a global oilfield services company, to avoid crises before they occur and mitigate them when they arise.
Why I Picked the University of Alabama–Birmingham School of Medicine
Stacey Watkins, 2013 graduate and resident, UAB, Internal Medicine
I was accepted to the National Institute of General Medical Sciences’ Medical Scientist Training Program that fully funds the M.D.-Ph.D. programs of future researchers at various medical schools. After going through two days of rigorous interviews at UAB’s med and graduate schools, I was sure it was a great fit as it seemed strong in every research area from microbiology to immunology to neurobiology.
The first two years of medical school, UAB has students cycle through different labs each summer to choose a specialty. After stints in pathology and microbiology, I found my “family” in the neurobiology lab, where I spent four years looking at how malignant brain cancer spreads.
I always found colleagues willing to collaborate and thelp me get the resources I needed for my research, because people at UAB are so committed to advancing treatments and techniques. I plan to pursue a fellowship in hematology and oncology and eventually hope to work at an academic institution where I can see firsthand the problems patients struggle with and then go back to the lab to solve those problems. UAB has prepared me to do just that.
Why I Picked the University of Washington
Christy Harris, 2012 graduate and elementary school teacher
When I decided to pursue teaching, I knew I wanted to work in a Title I school. UW’s College of Education was ideal for me as it emphasizes preparing teachers to serve disadvantaged communities and partners up with many area schools.
UW’s pipeline program allows students to learn theory and then apply it immediately. Starting in the summer, I was trained to do reading assessments and then to tutor individual students.
In the fall, my classmates and I took courses four days a week and began teaching classes once a week. Guided by mentor teachers, we learned to evaluate and instruct kids with diverse abilities. By January, we had moved to full-time teaching, while still meeting regularly with our mentors.
UW also matched us with after-school programs so we could understand the life challenges of many students – for example, kids whose parents worked night shifts or who had a language barrier that prevented them from helping with homework. I learned to apply these insights, discussing new concepts in class and using homework solely for review. Now with my master’s, I still take advantage of UW’s excellent summer programs for teachers to keep up with best practices.

Cutting-Edge Careers Attract New Law Grads

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in physics from Harvey Mudd College, Brendan Haberle worked on plasma research at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. But “doing basic science as a laboratory researcher just wasn’t a good fit for me,” says Haberle, who wanted to work in a range of scientific areas, not just one.
After stints in consulting and developing intelligence systems for the U.S. Army, Haberle did some research and realized the fast-growing sector of intellectual property law offered the varied exposure to science and technology that he sought.
He headed to the University of Arizona’s James E. Rogers College of Law and graduated in 2015. Hired as an IP attorney at a local Tucson, Arizona, firm, he assisted startups innovating in fields ranging from biotechnology to medical devices.
Haberle relished his clients’ “energy, optimism and vibrancy,” but as soon as a company took off, he says, the entrepreneurs moved to a larger firm that “could help them get to the next level.” So a year later, Haberle joined the national full-service firm of Dinsmore & Shohl LLP in San Diego, which had a strong IP practice along with the expertise in disciplines like tax and securities law needed to help startups grow.
A technical background and “the ability and desire to remain immersed in new technology” are essential for IP attorneys, says Haberle, 34, who continues to focus on biotechnology as well as the optics, electronics, automotive and other sectors.
He engages extensively with clients to understand the technology behind each innovation, the “space” it will operate in, and the kinds of patent, copyright, trademark and other IP protections it will need, particularly if it’s multiuse – for example, an optical device that has both medical and industrial applications.
The rapid pace of innovation is helping drive the need for IP attorneys. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office reported that more than twice as many patents were granted in 2015 as a decade ago.
Last year, roughly 15 percent of all jobs placed by BCG Attorney Search, one of the country’s largest legal recruiting firms, were in intellectual property. While salaries vary widely across sectors, median annual pay for entry-level IP attorneys typically ranges from about $125,000 to $148,000Make sure these averages cut across public and private sectors. from salary, according to
Here are a few other areas of law prospective students should check out.
• Estate planning or elder law attorney: As more baby boomers retire, more lawyers are needed to advise clients on estate planning, probate administration and asset protection. Kaplan Test Prep’s Law School Insider rates the practice, which also includes health care and family law, among the top-10 fastest-growing legal sectors. Average salary for associates is $82,000.
• Civil litigation lawyer: For 2016, staffing agency Robert Half Legal reported that up to a third of lawyers surveyed said that civil litigation would create the most law jobs. Legal news site Law360 attributes the growth to an increase in securities and class-action lawsuits, antitrust litigation by the Department of Justice and patent litigation, among other factors. According to, the median salary for civil litigators is $90,647 per year.
• Real estate lawyer: A booming housing market is spurring the need for real estate attorneys. Robert Half Legal estimates that real estate law firms, which navigate state and local zoning laws and negotiate contracts between buyers and sellers, will create 6 percent of new legal jobs over the next two years. These attorneys can expect to earn between about $117,000 and $150,000 annually, according to
