NO USE BOSTON AND LOS ANGELES MEDIA MARKET WEBSITES**~ Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli appeared at a Boston federal court on Tuesday to settle a dispute over their legal counsel in the largest college admissions scandal in U.S. history The "Full House" star and her husband are both represented by the law firm Latham & Watkins
 The two were in court to acknowledge the risks posed by having the same lawyers, but, in the end, the couple agreed to continue using the same legal team.

Prosecutors claimed a possible conflict of interest with the firm, which recently represented the University of Southern California, where the couple is alleged to have paid bribes in order to get their two daughters in.

Loughlin and Giannulli are among 51 people charged with participating in a scheme where wealthy parents conspired to use bribery and other forms of fraud to get their children admitted to top universities.

(broll of rick singer) Prosecutors claim they did so with the help of Rick Singer, a California college admissions consultant who pleaded guilty to funneling bribes to coaches and paying proctors through his non-profit organization.

They allege that Loughlin and Giannulli agreed to pay $500,000 dollars to have their two daughters named as recruits to USC's crew team even though they did not row competitively.

The couple has pleaded not guilty.

But 15 other parents have agreed to plead guilty, including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, who admitted to having paid $15,000 dollars to have someone secretly correct her daughter's S-A-T answers.

She is scheduled to be sentenced on September 13th.

Popular weight-loss surgery may lead to weaker bone health in teenagers, suggests study

While many adolescents consider going for weight loss surgeries, researchers have found one of the surgery's common side effects noticed on them. They found that common weight loss surgery for adolescents with obesity called sleeve gastrectomy has harmful effects on bones. Popular weight-loss surgery may lead to weaker bone health in teenagers, suggests study for adolescents with obesity called sleeve gastrectomy has harmful effects on bones. "Childhood obesity is a major public health issue that has increased over the last 10 years," said lead investigator Miriam A. Bredella, M.D., professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, and vice-chair of the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. "Sleeve gastrectomy is the most common bariatric surgery procedure performed in children and adults." In a sleeve gastrectomy, approximately 75% of the stomach is removed to restrict food intake and induce weight loss. It results in a typically round stomach taking on the shape of a tube or sleeve. The number of sleeve gastrectomy procedures performed on adolescents increased 100-fold from 2005 to 2014.
