He said he drove to Georgia to meet the boy at his house, then took him to a hotel where they had sex, according to the interrogation video. The undercover detective asked Treaster, OK and when did you find out how old he was? Honestly, I found out before I met him, but you know, Treaster said. So you still went for that, to have sex with him, knowing he was 15 years old? the detective asked. Yes, Treaster said. Treaster did not return calls from CNN. He was one of four Disney employees and one Universal employee arrested in sex stings or in child porn cases from June 10 to July 1. Previous arrests include: Cedric Cuthbert, the night shift custodial manager at Disneys Port Orleans resort, who was downloading child porn last year on his work computer while writing a sermon for his church, where he was the pastor, according to police. Cuthbert pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to six years in prison.

Some were evacuated through the emergency hatch on the roof of the train, and they had to walk across the train cars while secured to a safety line. Fire officials confirmed the monorail lost power due to a weather-related issue, and Disney was unable to restart the monorail so it had to be evacuated. Several Twitter users reported the evacuation just after 6 p.m. "Literally stuck on a monorail at Disney, lighting struck and we immediately stopped. I'm convinced that I'm going to die," said Twitter user @nnaaatttalliiie at 6:07 p.m. We're going to have to evacuate the monorail," @lilymock said. WDWNT.com tweeted a photo of the monorail stopped near the Wilderness Lodge with multiple emergency vehicles nearby. All riders were evacuated by 8 p.m., but the monorail remained stalled late into the night.

(Adam Wesley/The Gazette-KCRG) IOWA CITY After three years, the Disney Institute approach has filtered across the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Big and little changes can be seen in the design of new buildings, new roles called service ambassadors, a recognition and reward approach to management and a lowering of decision-making authority closer to the front line of service. Its the little things that make the difference, said Michael Brownlee, UIs chief pharmacy officer, who serves as chairman of UIHCs service and operational excellence council. If you think you have to (go) the extra mile all the time, theres cases where thats too much. We say, go the extra inch. because all of us doing the little things adds up to something great. The institute, which was offered last week for the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids business communities through the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce, is a division of Walt Disney Co. that teaches Disney strategies to improve business and customer service success. UIHC began using the Disney Institute in 2011 with three training sessions per year. After backlash to an initial proposal to send a leadership group to Walt Disney World, UIHC decided to bring trainers to campus.

In January 2012, when Starbucks released a memorandum voicing support of gay marriage, NOM launched DumpStarbucks.com to urge people to boycott the coffee chain. As part of the General Mills family of products, which has been boycotted by NOM for opposing the Minnesota Marriage Amendment, there are attempts to dethrone Wheaties as the "Breakfast of Champions." In 2004, Procter and Gamble angered conservatives by opposing an anti-gay rights statute that would exempt gays and lesbians from special civil rights protection in its hometown of Cincinnati. In response, the American Family Association issued a boycott of some of P&G's most popular products, including Tide Detergent, and gathered petition signatures from almost 365,000 families urging Procter & Gamble to change its policy. In 2005, Microsoft came under fire from anti-LGBT activists, including evangelical preacher Ken Hutcherson, for its support of a bill in that would outlaw discrimination against homosexuals at work in the state of Washington. In response, Microsoft withdrew its support of the bill, prompting outrage from gay and liberal activists and criticism from its staff and other big businesses. In response, Bill Gates backtracked again and admitted that he was surprised by the vehemence of the reaction. When the bill was defeated by a single vote, Microsoft's liberal critics blamed its withdrawal of support for the loss. A May 2012 post on the American Family Association web site proclaims, "AFA is promoting a boycott of Home Depot until it agrees to remain neutral in the homosexual culture war. The total number of people who have signed the Home Depot boycott pledge is 719,037." The pledge condemns Home Depot for giving "financial and corporate support to open displays of homosexual activism," because this helps expose "small children to lascivious displays of sexual conduct by homosexuals and cross-dressers." In response to the pledge, which was delivered at Home Depot's annual shareholder meeting, Chairman Blake responded, "We are, and will remain, committed to a culture that fosters an inclusive environment for our associates, our customers and communities in which we exist." Diapers are essential to fulfilling the straight family-making dream, which make them an odd target of a 'pro-family' boycott. However, in 2004, Proctor and Gamble angered conservatives by opposing an anti-gay rights statute that would exempt gays and lesbians from special civil rights protection in its hometown of Cincinnati.
