    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Gov. Gavin Newsom has invested nearly $40 billion into bolstering clean energy in California, pledging that by 2035 all new vehicles sold in California will be zero-emission. Now, another major industry is joining that pledge — the cement industry. READ MORE: Police Searching For 2 Suspects Following Chase In West SacramentoTom Tietz, executive director of California Nevada Cement Association, says California uses 11 million tons of cement per year. California cement is a hot commodity. It’s used to build schools, roadways and even Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center. The only other state that uses more cement is Texas. “Our entire civilization is based on our material,” Tietz said. “Every building has a concrete foundation.” Now the material is working to cement itself in California’s future, but how? We’re getting answers. “The California Nevada Cement Association released a carbon neutrality plan,” Tietz said.

    Head lice found on ancient mummies contain more DNA than a tooth, according to scientists, who say it could help shed light on ancient people and migration. A team were able to extract the DNA from the 'cement' head lice used to glue their eggs to hairs on mummified bodies in South America, thousands of years ago.  The DNA extracted from the cement was of better quality than that recovered through other methods, according to the team led by the University of Reading. It revealed clues about pre-Columbian human migration patterns throughout South America, including that  the original population of the San Juan province migrated from the land and rainforests of the Amazon in the North of the continent. 'There is a hunt out for alternative sources of ancient human DNA and nit cement might be one of those alternatives,' said study first author Dr Mikkel Winther Pederson, from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.  Head lice found on ancient mummies contain more DNA than a tooth, according to scientists, who say it could help shed light on ancient people...

    This is the hilarious moment a naughty dog ran across newly laid concrete, leaving a trail of paw prints. Sararat Prayongyam had hired builders to lay a patio at her grandmother's house in Bangkok, Thailand. But after locking all the dogs inside their house, one pooch managed to escape to find the workers laying the concrete. Chak jumps right into the wet concrete, pauses for thought, and then pads across the patio at the home in Bangkok, Thailand CCTV footage, filmed on on October 16, shows the four-year-old pet, named Chak, walking all over the freshly-poured concrete, leaving plenty of paw marks.  Much to the dismay of the construction workers, Chak seemed to become quicker, and the paw prints much more obvious, the more they tried to scare him away. The wet cement looks briefly pristine, before the canine dashes through to make his mark once again  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Pawing concrete: Hilarious moment pet dog destroys family's...

    The Supreme Court is teeing up its next round of far-right decisions, after which the far-right justices making those decisions will doubtless trot out for another round of claiming that the court is not partisan. Following its shadow docket decision effectively overturning Roe v. Wade in Texas, the court is setting up the next step by hearing arguments on a Mississippi abortion ban that could be the official, nationwide end of Roe. But that's not all. Before it gets to the Mississippi abortion ban, the Supreme Court will consider a major gun case, its first in a decade. That case centers on a New York law requiring people to show "proper cause" as to why they need to carry guns outside their homes in order to get a permit to do so. What's particularly disturbing about the court's attention to that law is that this is not a new law coming under review—it's been around for a long time, so this is unmistakably a case where what changed is not the law but the composition of the court. A week...
    A goal at 90 ‘+ 2 by José Alfonso Alvarado thwarted the victory of Cruz Azul, who had to settle for 1-1 against Rayados, today at the Azteca Stadium, for Day 5 of Grita México A21. The Machine was better than the royal club at the Azteca Stadium and found the nets with a maximum penalty well received by Jonathan Rodríguez, at 66 ‘. But Alvarado got an unmarked header, taking advantage of the fact that the sky-blue players finished with one less after the expulsion of Ignacio Rivero, at 85 ‘, for a hard tackle; in a play that the whistling Jorge Pérez Durán reviewed with the VAR.

    President Joe Biden returns to the campaign trail on Friday, traveling to Northern Virginia to tout Terry McAuliffe's bid for a second term in the governor's mansion.  As Biden makes his return, Democrats are doubling down on his presidency, making it the centerpiece of their 2022 midterm strategy.  Looming over their efforts is the shadow of Donald Trump, who is already inserting himself into the next rounds of Republican primaries.  With control of Congress at stake, along with Biden's ability to pass his legislative agenda, Democrats have invested heavily in Joe, establishing party embeds in some of the major battle ground states as part of the coordination effort with the White House. That coordination includes a united messaging strategy, specifically promoting Biden's legislation agenda, including the Child Tax Credit and his American Rescue Plan.  Last week the three Democratic campaign committees released a rare joint ad touting the Child Tax Credit and its benefits on the middle class.  The economy will be a key talking point.   A White House official told DailyMail.com the focus is on 'the strength of our agenda, and...
    A North Korean soldier runs through a small village just south of Hyesan, where a border wall is currently being constructed in the province of Ryanggang. Damir Sagolj/REUTERS North Korea has been building a wall on its border with Communist cousin China. When it realized it was behind schedule, it started conscripting married women as laborers, per Radio Free Asia. North Koreans were upset with the forced labor, saying the border wall will be "useless," sources told Radio Free Asia. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. North Korea, unable to meet a deadline for building a wall along its border with China, has turned to forcing married women to make cement blocks for construction, Radio Free Asia reported on Monday. The regime wants to finish a two-meter high wall with voltage wiring in the province of Ryanggang by October 10, its Party Founding Day, per Radio Free Asia, a US-backed nonprofit news site. North Korea initially planned to use military and youth personnel as laborers, but anonymous sources in the province told Radio Free Asia that authorities...
    RORY BURNS isn’t the prettiest thing in two pads but he is tough, determined and resilient. The Surrey opener’s third international century saved England from potential embarrassment in the First Test and cemented his position for the summer. WIN £50,000!Play Dream Team Euros – our FREE fantasy football game 2Rory Burns secured his third international centuryCredit: AFP It was not a thing of beauty - not even Burns’ biggest fan would claim he is easy on the eye - but it was a monument to substance over style. While Zak Crawley and Dan Lawrence played appalling shots, Dom Sibley’s technique was exposed, Ollie Pope flattered to deceive and James Bracey made a duck on debut, Burns batted for all 101.1 overs of England’s innings. He was dropped, survived an easy stumping chance and was twice hit on the head but he would not be shaken.. His quirky technique, with his glance to mid-wicket before every ball and his closed bat face, would never be coached. But it serves him well. At one stage, England were 140-6 and in danger of...
    CASTELBUONO, Sicily (AP) — When my wife and I bought a hectare (about 2.5 acres) of countryside with three buildings on it in the mountains of Sicily four years ago, I didn’t expect – or want – the work to be done quickly. Little did I know it would become what feels like a lifetime of work. After much dreaming and doubting, drafting floor plans and scrapping wild ideas, looking at the structures from every angle, studying their fissures and (lack of) craftsmanship, I finally felt ready earlier this year to begin work on the main construction project: turning a two-story barn made out of imposing, and boring, cement blocks into a funky kitchen and cozy bedrooms. “Chalk! Can you buy me some chalk in town?” I asked my wife before she headed out the door with our two sons, off to school a couple months ago. We have been living in one of the three buildings on the property: It’s a tiny farmer’s house that was, importantly for jobless transplants like us from city life in America, inhabitable...
    Sunday on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) discussed his memo urging House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to recognize the relationship between the Republican Party and working-class Americans. Banks credited former President Donald Trump for establishing that relationship, which he said was vital to the GOP’s future election prospects. “The reason I wrote the memo to Leader McCarthy a couple of weeks ago is because it became clear, it’s become clearer and clearer to me that Donald Trump gave the Republican Party a really important gift,” he said. “I’m not sure that all of my colleagues quite understand that that gift is still sitting right in front of us. And that gift is that, for the first time, more than ever, working-class voters in America identify themselves as Republicans more than they ever did before. Donald Trump did something unprecedented in cementing a relationship with blue-collar, working-class voters and brought them into the Republican fold in a way that I hope Republicans will soon recognize so that we can maintain it.” “And that’s why I wrote the...

    (CNN)It's not easy watching Pelé shuffling into shot for an interview, needing the aid of a walker before almost shoving it away with disdain. The disdain, however, is counterpointed by the Brazilian football great freely drumming away on a shoeshine box, or laughing with teammates over some food.These are some of the scenes from a new Pelé documentary on Netflix.Co-director David Tryhorn tells CNN Sport though Pelé has "done tens of thousands of interviews his entire life," once the filmmakers explained what they wanted to do, the 80-year-old was "very focused on his own legacy at this stage in life.""You're often dealing with sort of memories of memories," adds Tryhorn as he reflects on the issues which can arise when attempting to extract anecdotes out of a man now in his ninth decade of life.

    From the Editorial Office La Jornada newspaperSaturday, February 27, 2021, p. a10 Cruz Azul and Tijuana did not hurt each other and ended with a gray tie without annotations at the Noria facilities, during the continuation of day eight of the Liga Mx Femenil Guardianes 2021. The cement group, which has not known the taste of victory since date three, settled for the equalized one – number four and the second in a row – to rescue a point and remain in eighth place with 10 units. For the border team, things were not promising as they continued below the capital with nine points, their third draw, and they have not won recently, accumulating only two wins for three losses. It was a locked first half without either team managing to shake the nets, although cement goalkeeper Karla Morales had a little more action to keep her goal at zero. In the complementary part, some action was noticed with the Xolas that were stopped by the cement defense. The celestial player Daniela Arroyo wanted to surprise with a...
    Patrick Mahomes is the perfect quarterback. But Tom Brady can end all talk of him becoming the greatest of all time. With six rings that accolade firmly belongs to Brady, whose Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night in Super Bowl LV. For Mahomes - and any quarterback – the legacy of Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jnr looms large. He was six when Brady led the New England Patriots to their first title 19 years ago. But if the Chiefs win, Mahomes, 25, will be the youngest quarterback to win two Super Bowls - and the first since Brady in 2005 to go back-to-back. Patrick Mahomes is the perfect quarterback, but he comes up against a legend in Tom Brady Mahomes is 44-9 as starter, including the playoffs. He is magnificent. A dual threat quarterback without a weakness: a leader, an innovator, and one of only 13 men to win a regular season and Super Bowl MVP. His achievements are equally impressive off the field. He speaks out about social injustice and police brutality and...
    The View could not contain their laughter as they talked about Mike Lindell and his recent, roller-caster ride of an appearance on Newsmax. The MyPillow CEO gave an interview to Bob Sellers on Tuesday, though it was an instant trainwreck since Lindell repeatedly pushed conspiracy theories about Dominion Voting Systems, and Sellers literally walked off the set as Lindell resisted his fact-checking. Whoopi Goldberg rolled footage of the chaos for her colleagues on Wednesday, which drew plenty of laughter from her and Meghan McCain. “It’s so good!” McCain chuckled. She continued to say “Dominion is not messing around right now” since the company is threatening defamation lawsuits against those who continue to slander them with conspiracy theories. Newsmax previously gave oxygen to the claims against Dominion, but they backed away from them when the network also faced a possible legal threat. “I think it really shows that you can’t lie about this anymore because there are going to be ramifications,” McCain said. “And I found it really entertaining to watch Mike Lindell have a baby meltdown on television. It’s so...
    2021 Golden Globes Nominations: All the Surprises What Is the SECURE Act? The unglamorous life of Tom Brady: From cleaning toilets to hauling cement Only a few days into his summer job with a Michigan construction company, Tom Brady received a particularly repulsive assignment. The floppy-haired 19-year-old had to scrub an auto parts factory restroom blanketed by layers of construction debris, grime and who knows what else. Five years before he claimed his first Super Bowl ring and one year before he became Michigan’s starting quarterback, Brady wrapped a heavy-duty trash bag around his prized right arm and went to work. He didn’t stop polishing until every toilet and urinal gleamed, until every sink and floor tile sparkled. That unpleasant task was one of many Brady tackled over the summer of 1997 during his three-month foray into construction. Brady wasn’t licensed or trained to operate heavy machinery during his time with Dudlar & Sons Construction, so his primary role became helping to set up or clean up job sites. He hauled equipment from one end of a job site...
    Though NASA may have trouble returning to the moon by 2024, the US space agency is doing what it can to eventually explore the lunar surface, announcing a formal partnership with Japan for the lunar Gateway.  NASA and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) formally announced the agreement that will see JAXA contribute to the Gateway, providing technical expertise, devices for life support and environmental control system, batteries, thermal control and imagery components.  “We’re honored to announce this latest agreement with Japan to support long-term human exploration on and around the Moon as part of the Artemis program,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine in a statement. “Strengthening our international partnerships and commitments to Artemis puts humanity on a solid path to achieve our common goals of sustainable lunar exploration by the end of this decade.” A memorandum of understanding was signed between NASA and Japan at the end of 2020, the Japanese Foreign Ministry has said previously. In addition, the new agreement will allow opportunities for Japanese astronauts to access the Gateway, which NASA said “will be determined following additional discussions and documented in a future...
    U.S. President-elect Joe Biden responds to a question as he speaks about the economy and the final U.S. jobs report of 2020 at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, December 4, 2020.Leah Millis | Reuters WASHINGTON – The Electoral College is voting Monday to cement President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Donald Trump in this year's presidential election. The ballots are being cast throughout the day by individual electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and they mirror their state's popular vote. As of 11:30 a.m. ET, Indiana and Tennessee had both cast their 11 electoral votes for Trump. Vermont had cast 3 votes for Biden, and New Hampshire had cast 4 votes for Biden. This brought Trump's total to 22 votes so far, and Biden's to 7 votes. Biden is projected to receive 306 votes total, while Trump is expected to win 232 votes. The Electoral College vote is typically a formality, occurring more than a month after Election Day votes are cast.

    President Trump can cement his legacy as the president who ended America’s longest war if he withdraws all U.S. forces from or greatly reduces their numbers in Afghanistan, the president’s nominee for U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, William Ruger, said Monday. “He would be the first president since at least Reagan to not start a major new war, and he’d be the president who got us out of America’s longest war. That’s what the president should want in the first paragraph of the history of his presidency,” Ruger told Breitbart News in an interview on Monday. “It’s not just because it’s about his legacy or about politics, but it’s good policy,” he added. President Trump is widely expected to issue an order to draw down U.S. troops from Afghanistan in the coming days. Last week, the president fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper and the top official for defense policy, James Anderson, clearing the way for appointees who are loyal to the president’s agenda and his desire to draw down forces from Afghanistan. A former senior administration official told Breitbart News that the president...

    Anti-police rioters in Seattle attempted to trap officers inside a precinct by sealing the door with cement and setting the building on fire, KTTH reported. Unrest in Seattle has been on going since late May, when George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Department officers, but it may have been further inflamed by the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Video of the Blake shooting went viral over the weekend. According to KTTH, some protesters brought quick-dry cement to the Seattle Police Department's East Precinct. As other rioters vandalized the building, some of them mixed up a cement solution and applied it to the door, as well as destroying the key card reader on the door. At the same time, some of the rioters tried to set the building on fire with officers inside, with the apparent intention of burning the officers alive. Fortunately, they weren't very good at mixing up concrete. From Jason Rantz of KTTH: A source tells me the officers inside had to kick the door open to exit the building and disperse...
    CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — Republicans have officially re-nominated President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence as the GOP's standard-bearers for the 2020 general election. "This is a historic moment as we make official the nomination of Donald Trump and Mike Pence as our nominees for president and vice president of the United States," Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said Monday. Trump and Pence's re-nominations were approved by 336 Republican convention delegates gathered in-person at North Carolina's Charlotte Convention Center. More than 2,500 delegates were expected to descend on the city for the quadrennial event, but the coronavirus pandemic forced organizers to scuttle two years worth of planning so they could adhere to virus-related crowd restrictions. "Our party is unified, our supporters are energized, and now we will go forward, and our re-electing President Trump," McDaniel told party faithful 70 days before Election Day. The 2020 Republican National Convention's roll call vote in Charlotte precedes four nights of prime-time TV programming, anchored from Washington, D.C. Trump is expected to appear every night, but Monday's speakers include Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz,...

    UFC: Gilbert Burns looking to cement his fighter of the year status on July 11th By: Daniel Cunningham July 2, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesEntering 2020, not a lot of people were thinking about Gilbert Burns (19-3) as a top contender in the UFC‘s welterweight division. Sure, Burns had won four fights in a row, but his best win came against Gunnar Nelson at UFC Fight Night 160. While that’s a quality win, nobody was putting him on that elite level. Burns got his first shot to prove his eliteness back in March against Demian Maia (28-10). Gilbert Burns UFC Ascension Burns responded by knocking out Maia in the first round. It was clear that Burns was ready for the next step. Burns was calling out top competition after his win, and the UFC gave him what he asked for. Burns was slated to fight former champion, Tyron Woodley (19-5-1), in May. Many people (including myself) thought a motivated Woodley would win the fight. However, from...

    British journalist Ed Luce called out Senate Republicans for covering a dying Trump administration that’s threatening U.S. democracy as it gasps for survival. The Financial Times‘ chief U.S. commentator told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that President Donald Trump is trying to crack down on dissent and rally his hardcore base as the coronavirus and now nationwide protests against police brutality threaten his re-election chances. “There are other Republican senators who are keeping silent because they know that what Trump is doing, what Trump is suggesting, is wrong,” Luce said. they’re scared of a backlash if they speak out.” Luce, who warned of the Trump administration’s fascist creep in a new column, called on GOP senators to follow the example set by former Defense secretary James Mattis, former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff Mike Mullen and current Defense secretary Mike Esper and speak out against the president’s abuses. “They need to speak out — it is his party,” Luce said. “Ultimately, they are enabling him. You know, I don’t think the threat of this situation can be overstated. Trump has his back...
