    Two fires on Saturday tore through separate houses in Oakley — one after an explosion, and the other after flames spread out of control from a barbecue grill, authorities said. A total of eight people were displaced from the fires, which happened about 14 hours apart on opposite ends of town, said Battalion Chief Gil Guerrero of the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District. The first fire was reported at about 5:24 a.m. Saturday, after a man said he heard a pop or an explosion outside his house at 5022 Sandmound Blvd., on the far eastern edge of Oakley, Guerrero said. The explosion left the side of the house in flames, and much of the home was damaged by the time firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control. The cause of the fire remains unclear, though investigators do not suspect foul play, Guerrero said. The man, his daughter and his adult son planned to stay with nearby family members. Another fire erupted across town Saturday evening when flames from a barbecue grill spread out of control, heavily damaging...

    Avdiivka looks like many other small towns in Ukraine, with shoppers stomping along icy streets in sub-zero temperatures, the bakery serving fresh cherry pastries, and a scruffy market with stalls selling cheese, pickled cucumber and home-made jams. Yet after walking a few minutes to the old part of town, the scars of conflict and cruel impact of the Kremlin's meddling in Ukraine can be seen – and often heard – with the starkest clarity. Many homes are destroyed, lying in collapsed heaps draped with thick snow, while others have gaping gaps in roofs from shells and boarded-up windows with the glass blown out. Blocks of flats sit empty. Road signs are riddled with bullet holes. Some streets are fringed by woodland where once families flocked in summer to pick mushrooms and children went to swim in a small lake. Today there are warning signs of buried mines while the sound of nearby shelling is routinely heard. This town has endured almost eight long years on the front line of the lethal struggle between Kiev and Moscow, driving out perhaps half...

    BAY POINT — A Bay Point man has been arrested and charged in federal court with making online threats to a Congressman and a journalist, alleged crimes that were apparently motivated by his displeasure with what he called President Joe Biden’s “non-existent victory,” authorities said in court records. Robert Lemke, 35, was charged with making threatening interstate communications, a federal offense that carries a maximum of five years in prison. Lemke was arrested in Bay Point and extradited to Manhattan, where the Southern District of New York’s U.S. Attorney’s office filed the charges. “The electoral process is the essential mechanism through which our democracy functions. While in any election it is inevitable that some will be disappointed in the result, threats of violence cannot and will not be tolerated,” U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a written statement announcing the charges.

    A Tesla Model 3 owner crashed his car so hard, the electric vehicle’s battery broke apart and sent cells flying all over the area. The police department of Corvallis, Oregon has posted the details of the crash on Facebook, where it revealed that the owner was driving in excess of 100mph. Apparently, the driver lost control of the vehicle, sheared a power pole and then knocked over two trees and a telephone junction box. The impact broke the EV’s battery pack seal, causing hundreds of cells to scatter — at least two smashed through people’s windows, with one landing on a person’s lap and another landing on someone’s bed, starting a small fire. According to a Model 3 battery teardown by YouTube creator Jack Rickard, the Model 3 battery pack already uses an epoxy that makes removing cells extremely difficult. While the collision may have just been too powerful for the epoxy, we’ve reached out to Tesla to ask what the company thinks happened and if it’s thinking of ways on how to prevent cells from flying out in the...

    After meeting three decades ago and resting their minds, Angie and Nilesh decided it was the perfect time to find their dream vacation home in Spain. To do so, they enlisted the help of a location in San Laura Hamilton, although Channel 4 guests were a bit torn as to whether they would like to find a house or an apartment to house themselves and their families. However, that mess soon came to bed when Laura’s first favorite house was quickly rejected. Laura’s first property on the show was well with 0 260,000 on the couple’s budget.

Breaking into his normal programming, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper brought in Collins, who explained what said was an unprecedented security step to demand the media exit the protected White House compound. “The Secret Service asked us to leave. I don’t think that’s ever happened since I’ve been inside the White House,” Collins noted. “Often they say you can’t go outside, the White House is on lockdown. Press was instructed to actually leave the White House grounds and out here, you can see there is a swarm of protesters out in front of the White House. There are reports that they were trying to take down the statute of Andrew Jackson that is in the square right in front of the White House and as we were walking back through here, we saw several protesters who said...
