FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday, October 25, 2021 Former Air War College Professor Pleads Guilty to Making False Statements About Relationship with Government Official in China A civilian professor at the Air War College on Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama, pleaded guilty to making false statements to a federal agent.
According to court documents, Xiaoming Zhang, 69, a naturalized citizen of Chinese descent living in Montgomery, Alabama, began working as an Air War College (AWC) professor in July 2003. During his tenure at the AWC, Zhang would travel to China on a regular basis for work-related purposes, research and to visit family living there.
Beginning sometime in 2012, Zhang developed a relationship with a known foreign official working with the Shanghai Municipal Government. Records indicate that Zhang met with the official in person on approximately six occasions and exchanged approximately 40 emails with him from December 2012 to January 2017. At some point during this period, Zhang became aware that the official was using, or attempting to use, their relationship to gain access to sensitive information in Zhang’s possession, as well as to make contact with other potentially valuable individuals.
As part of his employment at the AWC, Zhang held a “secret” security clearance and attended annual security training that informed him of reporting requirements about suspicious foreign contacts and relationships with foreign government officials, along with other briefings concerning reporting requirements. Despite all the trainings and briefings, Zhang failed to report the relationship with the foreign official even after he came to understand that the official was attempting to gather sensitive information from Zhang.
According to the factual basis contained in the plea agreement, Zhang made multiple misleading or false statements to authorities in an attempt to hide his relationship with the Chinese official. In August of 2017, Zhang denied knowing the foreign official when questioned by U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) investigators who were verifying his continued eligibility for a security clearance. When the FBI interviewed Zhang in July of 2020, he initially made more false statements, but eventually admitted to meeting with the official in China on numerous occasions and to being untruthful concerning that information. Zhang also acknowledged that he had concealed the relationship with the official because he knew it was improper.
Zhang pleaded guilty to making false statements to a federal agent and faces a maximum of five years in prison at sentencing. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
Acting Assistant Attorney General Mark J. Lesko of the Justice Department’s National Security Division and Acting U.S. Attorney Sandra J. Stewart for the Middle District of Alabama made the announcement.
The FBI investigated the case, with valuable assistance provided by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the Department of the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), and the Department of Defense.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett Talley of the Middle District of Alabama is prosecuting the case with assistance from Trial Attorney Scott Claffee of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section.

2021.10.26 01:59 Beautiful_Courage_47 I'm undecided to summon A.Ravi or wait for future mystics summons
Hi, so I'm been playing a lot but I still need guidance for this type of stuff, basically I was waiting Mystics Medals for either A. Twin or Last Rider Krau, I really like them and found their kit amazing, should I wait to summon either of those two or should I try to get A.Ravi? In the current meta, which one of those 3 would be better and why?
Thanks for reading

Pretty sure I’m hypomanic. Stopped taking bupropion XL 300 cold turkey a week ago but I’m still LIT. You know how it is, everything is thrilling, and it’s impossible to not get fixated on an idea. But sometimes shit seems like a good idea in this state that isn’t. Am I doing right by indulging myself in the idea of certain possibilities or am I gonna regret this later? Is this a Kanye moment? Hard to tell.

2021.10.26 01:59 Dont_try_it7 A girl seems interested in me, but didn't respond when I texted
sorry this is kinda long, I just think details are necessary. Im 16, she's also 16. I have two classes with her, she's normally very shy when it comes to new people, and when I realized I had a bit of a crush on her, I started paying attention to her and noticed she stares back. One of my classes, english, she sits pretty far away, but we are facing each other at a bit of an angle. The second class which is physics, we sit at different tables, but close and we are allowed to work together and I have friends at her table, so I will go over there if we have a worksheet. We do have common interests, we both play soccer, we have very similar classes, and I can get her to laugh.
In the first class, she stares the most, her eyes will linger as she looks over to the whiteboard, she'll look over after laughing with friends, she'll glance over and then look away quickly, or she will just outright stare for 8+ seconds. I try to keep her in my peripheral vision to not directly stare at her, but we will on occasion make eye contact. We won't make eye contact every day, but I notice she glances over several times every day. In the second class, my back is to her a lot, but she's talked to me while we are waiting out in the hall, and is talkative when i'm nearby. There was a time when one of my friends at her table asked me to come over so I could present a problem with their group, and I was blocked from her view, so she leans all the way over the table to see if I was coming over. There is another girl at that table, I hardly talk to her but the one time I was listening to the other girl, I noticed her glancing at me a several times to see if I was making eye contact with the other girl. I know she is looking at me and not something else, she's looked over her shoulder back at me when I was working in the hall, and we are pretty spaced out in the first class and I sit by the wall, so there's not much around me.
I notice all of this, so I ask for her number after a class where we had been working on an assignment together, the Thursday before last. She said sure, didn't seem happy or unhappy, and she just gave me her number. We had a week off of school after this, and so I texted her that Sunday. I asked her if she mentioned the other day that she played soccer (ik she does we just haven't talked about it in class, we've talked about weird teachers and that sort of thing), and I got no response. At this point I just figure she's not super interested and I misread the situation, but first I check with a mutual friend that it is her number, and it is the right number. So I wait until today when we are back in school to see if she's still staring, and today she stared a lot more than usual. Now i'm just really confused on why she's been staring for about 3 weeks, but didn't respond. I think I'm pretty decent looking, not a model but certainly not ugly, I dont have acne or anything so i can't imagine she's staring because she's grossed out, and she never has avoided me in person or anything.
I'd just ask her why she didn't respond, but we moved seats in the second class because it was after break, and now she's not at a table with any of my friends so I don't have an excuse to go over there. I don't know of any time I could talk to her alone either, she's usually walking with someone in the halls, and we rarely have to wait outside of a class before the other class gets out. I think i've been pretty forward with my intentions, she at least could guess that I might have a crush on her, but idk. She is initially very shy, so I might have made her nervous by being forward, but she's not shy around me when I talk to her. Idk if this means much, but I do cuss if it brings humor to the situation, and she's a very gentle and shy person so I wouldn't expect her to swear, but she has several times that i've heard.
I guess I just need someone else's thoughts on the situation, cuz i'm totally lost

2021.10.26 01:59 W00zzi Safety question
Recently bought a chauvet dj scorpion dual rgb for DJ gigs. Is this thing safe to scan the dance floor or should I aim to keep the beams a few feet above eye level? It scans wide and fast, as far as I can tell it's never tightly focused.
I have a Halloween party coming up and it sure looks pretty sweet when I let it go crazy and scan the whole room. My options are limited otherwise but I do want to put safety first.
I'm using a DMX controller and can fine tune the aim as needed so keeping it aimed high isn't out of the question.
Maybe there's another solution? Please let me know your thoughts, thank you and I appreciate your time.
