Yang responded on Sunday at a press conference: “I would tell Eric Adams that I’ve been Asian my entire life.” In a Monday appearance on CNN’s New Day, host John Berman asked Adams: “Listen, two of your main opponents, Kathryn Garcia and Andrew yang campaigned together over the weekend.

    A Houston woman was sentenced Tuesday to 40 months in federal prison for calling 911 with a fake story about her neighbors — who were then killed by the police who stormed their house. The sentencing of Patricia Ann Garcia is the first in a wide-ranging scandal in which two Houston police officers have been charged with murder.

    BY NICK FERRARO, St. Paul Pioneer Press SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — As South St. Paul moved on from the stockyard and meatpacking era that put the city on the map, building after building disappeared from the landscape. However, two brick and limestone gatehouses that served as the entrance to the sprawling Armour & Co. meatpacking campus have remained intact, representing the lone vestige of what was once the world’s largest and most modern meatpacking plant and the city’s former way of life. But the future of the monuments could be in jeopardy. A commercial developer is interested in buying the city-owned land where the 20-foot-tall structures have stood for more than a century and constructing a 45,000-square-foot office-warehouse building, subdivided as eight condominiums for sale to small businesses. The location of the structures, which front Armour Avenue in the BridgePoint Business Park, and the triangle shape of the 4-acre site make the planned project undoable without moving them, said Ryan Garcia, the city’s economic and community development director. A developer has targeted a nearly 4-acre site owned by...
    Boxing fans have often accused the organizers of stacking up the big fights without staging them, and Mike Tyson has recently given his opinion on that. Hailing from the old-era, Tyson faced some of the best heavyweights on his road to glory. However, the same doesn’t happen quite often in the modern-day circuit. In his recent podcast alongside WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney and his father Bill Haney, Tyson discussed the current situation to pose his disapproval towards fighters ducking their nearing challengers. According to Mike Tyson, boxers should be stripped of their titles if they are unwilling to fight. Meanwhile, Bill Haney blamed boxing organizations. Speaking on it, the veteran trainer said, “I think that goes back to the organizations who have loyalty, certain loyalties or certain biases towards certain fighters and allow them. But then again, social media and platforms like you, you have here and voices like zap, he knows that stripping sh*** and not giving the fighters.” Read More | Mike Tyson Lays Into Boxing Officials: ‘They Robbed Me’ Devin Haney explained how WBC...
