    New footage released today shows the moment former US soccer star Hope Solo was yanked from her car by police on the night of her DWI arrest after she passed out behind the wheel with her two-year-old twins in the back.

    STARTING today, McDonald’s unveiled its new take on its old favorite, the cheese danish, and we have some thoughts. The cheese danish is the newest addition to the McCafé Bakery menu lineup nationwide. 1The sweet treat is available starting on September 14 but only for a limited time As it’s only available for a limited time, my suggestion is - run, don’t walk. McDonald's perfectly describes it as a "flakey pastry with a sweet cream cheese filling and topped with a buttery streusel and light vanilla drizzle". The pastry is truly buttery and offers a generous amount of cream cheese which is expected when you’re paying $3.

    New York (CNN Business)The supply chain is facing major blockages, and container ships are heaping pollution into communities near the congested ports. The biggest offenders are, unsurprisingly, the world's biggest retailers, according to a new report Tuesday conducted by environmental organizations Stand.earth and Pacific Environment. The report shows that goods imported to the United States by Walmart, Target, Amazon and IKEA between 2018 and 2020 accounted for 20 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions. As of Monday, there were 84 vessels waiting off the coast of Southern California, 37 outside the Port of Los Angeles and the other 47 near the Port of Long Beach.For the communities surrounding those ports, emissions from cargo ships have long led to major health concerns. The increase in consumer demand because of the Covid-19 pandemic and ongoing port congestion is pushing pollution levels in these communities to all-time highs, according to the report."Until recently, the massive climate disrupting and human health harming emissions from international container shipping — and the companies that are buying their services — have sailed under the...
    A Walmart forklift operator and his 14-year-old nephew died in a Pennsylvania house fire last year after a 911 operator hung up on the man frantically begging for help because he spoke Spanish and not English, an explosive federal lawsuit alleges. The 72-page complaint filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by seven ousted Lehigh County 911 dispatchers claims, in part, that Spanish-speaking callers were denied help, that some operators slept during work hours, while others played the game of cornhole on the job or watched fireworks on the roof instead of taking emergency calls.  The lawsuit paints the 911 dispatch center as a 'hostile environment' where minority callers who were not fluent in English were ignored, and where a Latina supervisor was the target of discrimination and racially charged comments.  Arguably one of the most startling portions of the complaint is related to a 911 call that 44-year-old Heriberto Santiago Jr. placed on July 27, 2020, reporting a fire at his home in the 700 block of North Fair Street in Allentown, which...

Maher took on this highly complicated and labyrinthine rule in his opening monologue. “The CDC put out new mask guidelines now, which, it’s all just so fuckin’ confusing,” Maher said, then adopted a flummoxed demeanor and added “Indoors, outdoors, vaccinated, not vaccinated, masked, not masked. The Walmart shoppers don’t know who to punch anymore.” “So now we’re back to wearing the mask from the front of the restaurant until the waiter brings the breadsticks,” Maher said,...

    AUSTIN, Texas -- President Donald Trump said Saturday that he tentatively approved a deal between the Chinese-owned social media app TikTok and Oracle and Walmart that could bring the new joint venture's headquarters to Texas.

"They're going to move probably to the great state of Texas."Shortly after Oracle - a California-based tech company with an Austin campus - emerged as a potential buyer last week, Gov.

    Microsoft’s new Xbox consoles sold out across all major American retailers within minutes of preorders going live Tuesday morning. Demand for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S systems crashed the preorder pages of Amazon, Walmart, GameStop and Target shortly after being made available. It even took down Microsoft’s Xbox ordering website. Gamers hoping to get their hands on one of the new Xbox consoles were met with an error screen on Amazon, while Walmart’s and GameStop’s pages didn’t even load due to the traffic. Repeated attempts by The Post to reserve a unit at Target saw this reporter reach the checkout page, only to have the site refresh to an empty cart. A Twitter search for the “XboxSeriesX” hashtag brought up hundreds of results from frustrated gamers who were unable to find any way to secure a preorder to receive the console ahead of its Nov. 10 launch date. “Maybe don’t s—t on the competition if even your own store link doesn’t work,” IGN’s John Davidson wrote, referencing the PlayStation 5’s disastrous preorder period last week, which...
    In a statement to reporters on Monday, Oracle announced that its new TikTok venture will be entirely divested from ByteDance, a significant break from previous reports of the agreed deal between the two companies. “Upon creation of TikTok Global, Oracle/Walmart will make their investment and the TikTok Global shares will be distributed to their owners, Americans will be the majority and ByteDance will have no ownership in TikTok Global,” the company said in a statement to reporters. The statement differs significantly from earlier reports, which showed Oracle and Walmart taking only a 20 percent stake in the new venture and ByteDance maintaining control of the other 80 percent. ByteDance has not publicly relinquished its claim to the company, and Oracle did not respond to a request for clarification. On Monday morning, President Trump told reporters that China would be required to cede control of the app in order for the deal to go through. TikTok’s ability to operate within the US remains profoundly in doubt. The Department of Commerce had prepared to levy sanctions against the company on Friday, only...

    Warehouses are expected to reach 1,500 in the near future. Photo: ERIC PIERMONT / . / . Amazon plans to open more than 1,000 small delivery centers in cities and suburban neighborhoods across the US. in an effort to deliver products to customers as quickly as possible, as reported in CNet. Warehouses are expected to grow to around 1,500 in the near future, and these could help the online sales giant continue to expand its one-day delivery service for Amazon Prime subscribers. Many of Amazon’s warehouses have traditionally been located on the outskirts of the suburbs, but the expansion of these centers, which are smaller, would make the company more deeply integrated into the communities, as do car dealerships, fast food restaurants, and department stores. This move will help Amazon continue to offer faster delivery, while competing with other retailers, such as Walmart. It should be noted that, in addition to overnight shipping, Amazon already offers same-day delivery to 44 major metropolitan areas, as well as its Prime Now program for delivery...

    EL PASO, Texas (AP) — The man accused of killing 22 people at a Walmart in Texas is expected to be reindicted Thursday as he faces another murder charge in the mass shooting that targeted Mexicans, prosecutors said. Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas, is currently being held without bond on one count of capital murder of multiple people under Texas state law. The 21-year-old has also been charged with several federal hate crimes related to the shooting, according to a 90-count indictment unsealed in February. District Attorney Jaime Esparza said the latest murder charge will account for an unnamed victim who died nine months after the Aug. 3 massacre in the Texas border of El Paso that’s considered one of the deadliest attacks on Latinos in U.S. history.
