    When police arrested Gioacchino Gammino—one of Italy’s most wanted mafia fugitives—in a Madrid suburb last week, he asked how on Earth they found him. Did someone rat him out or did he accidentally leave a clue?

    MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX) — Despite a lawsuit calling its ban on oversized vehicles on narrow streets inhumane, the city of Mountain View began posting signs to enforce the voter-approved measure. It has left many, like Patrick True and Todd Wolff, making plans to leave the city — not by choice. “I think it’s stupid, I think they’re putting a lot of money where they don’t need to,” True said. “My family’s been here for eons. I don’t care, I’m out of here, you know, c’est la vie to Mountain View.” The class-action lawsuit, filed by legal advocates on behalf of the residents who live in RVs, calls the ban “unconstitutional” and “inhumane.” Mountain View city leaders have asked a federal judge to throw out the lawsuit; arguing that the ban’s goal is to ensure safety on its narrow roads. The ban prohibits oversized vehicles on streets less than 40 feet wide. There’s also a ban of oversized vehicles on streets with bike lanes. That means oversized vehicles, including RVs, are not allowed on more than 80% of streets in Mountain...

The complex near Krakow is very pixelated and can't really be made out even if you zoom in. 2The blurred base can be found near Krakow in PolandCredit: Google 2A Street View image from the road nearby just shows concrete walls along the secret areaCredit: Google The location is called the Dowództwo Wojsk Specjalnych and it's actually the Polish Special Forces Command. It's said the area was used to train Poland's Special Forces. The complex remains blurred out on Google Maps for security reasons.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX) — Time is almost up for dozens, if not hundreds of struggling residents in Mountain View, who are expected to be pushed out of the South Bay city because of the homes they live in.

Measure C, which passed with 56% of the vote, bans vehicles that exceed 22 feet in length or seven feet in width and 7 feet in height, parked on streets that are 40 feet or narrower.

    President Donald Trump's ninety minutes-plus Mussolini impression on September 29, which had originally been advertised as a debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, didn't do any favors for Cory Gardner. Throughout his campaign, Colorado's incumbent Republican senator has tried to come across as a chummy regular guy in his own ads while relying on highly funded surrogates to portray his opponent, ex-Governor John Hickenlooper, as a cross between Genghis Khan and Hannibal Lecter. Now, however, Gardner must figure out a way to maintain his friendly image even as he embraces a leader who came across during last night's performance as the sort of person from whom responsible parents would shield their children if they encountered him on the street. Gardner has yet to share an official response regarding Trump's embrace of the even darker side. But at least voters in need of a laugh have a place to enjoy one, albeit at his expense.Related Stories Cory Gardner: Supreme Court Move an Exploding Grenade, Pundit Says Top Colorado Dems Treat Trump Like a Piñata Over Mail-In Voting Cory Gardner Rips...

    Google and Aclima, a company that maps hyperlocal air pollution, announced today that researchers can now access a treasure trove of new data that can bolster efforts to both combat climate change and clean up the air. It’s the result of four years of measurements taken by Google Street View vehicles in California outfitted with Aclima sensors. The dataset offers researchers a close-up look at changes in air quality from block to block. It includes more than 42 million measurements of smog, soot, black carbon, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, and methane. The ability to zoom in to see differences on one street versus another is key to pinpointing where the most pollution is coming from and who it affects the most. “We’re really increasing the pixels on the picture of air quality.” “We’re really increasing the pixels on the picture of air quality.
