    In a string of armed robberies that took place over two days in the D.C. metro area, six mail carriers had property stolen from them. In a statement, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said the suspects — described by officials as two young, Black males wearing ski masks, one armed with a handgun — stole property from six mail carriers.

    BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) — Unidentified aircraft struck oil-rich areas in eastern Syria held by government and Iran-aligned groups on Saturday, an opposition war monitor said. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said there were no casualties or material losses in the attack, the second within a week in the province of Deir-Ez-Zor. At least five explosions were heard, according to the monitor, in the Hawijah Kateh area and a nearby bridge north of Deir-Ez-Zor city. Syrian state media also reported the attack but gave no details. Deir Ez-Zor is a strategic province that borders Iraq and contains oil fields. Iran-backed militia groups and regime forces control the area and have often been the target of Israeli war planes in previous strikes. Israel has staged hundreds of strikes on targets in Syria over the years but rarely acknowledges or discusses such operations. Last week, an Israeli missile attack on the suburbs of the Syrian capital Damascus killed four soldiers and wounded three others. The Syrian Defense Ministry said the attack caused material damage. The Observatory said Iranian...
    SUPERIOR, Colo. (CBS4)– Things were quiet at Deluxe Nails and Spa in Superior Thursday. (credit: CBS) “Not the same as before,” said co-owner Thong Nguyen as he worked on Christina Dickenson’s nails. “Before (there were) twelve units, but now only three,” he said about the stores, shops and learning centers around them. “I thought I was doing them a favor, but they’re actually very good,” laughed Dickinson, who had driven over from Boulder to patronize businesses she thought were hurting after talking with her daughter in Louisville about it. “They’re doing me a favor,” she smiled. “They’re finding that their regulars that were coming in on a daily basis are no longer there. They’ve had to move to Erie, they’ve had to move to Brighton, they’ve had to move to Westminster,” said Deana Miller, executive director of the Superior Chamber of Commerce. While some businesses were a total loss in the Marshall Fire, some are slowly reopening after cleaning up. Still, others stayed closed because of a lack of business and some are not coming back. While there has been...
    By Rachel Metz | CNN On a recent afternoon I tossed a few things into a basket at Target — cereal, graham crackers, kids’ sunglasses — then sat down at the end of an aisle filled with beauty items, placed a hand into a box-like machine, and let a robot paint my fingernails. CNN Business Senior Tech writer Rachel Metz recently tested Clockwork’s fingernail-painting robot at a local Target store. Credit: Noah Brezel  Made by a company called Clockwork, the robot is stationed at a Target store in Walnut Creek. Customers — who have booked and paid for their appointment online — stick a hand inside the machine (which looks a lot like a printer) that pipes polish onto the nail, leaving no brush lines.

    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Makeshift shelters abut busy roadways, tent cities line sidewalks, tarps cover broken-down cars, and sleeping bags are tucked in storefront doorways. The reality of the homelessness crisis in Oregon’s largest city can’t be denied. “I would be an idiot to sit here and tell you that things are better today than they were five years ago with regard to homelessness,” Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said recently. “People in this city aren’t stupid. They can open their eyes.” READ MORE: Unions Representing Sacramento City Teachers Vote Yes To Authorize StrikeAs COVID-19 took root in the U.S., people on the street were largely left on their own — with many cities halting sweeps of homeless camps following guidance from federal health officials.

    Getty Les Snead shares a hug with Cooper Kupp following the Rams' Super Bowl 56 victory on Sunday, February 13. Even a team like the Los Angeles Rams, featuring a general manager in Les Snead who jokingly paraded and caroused while wearing a T-shirt of himself with an expletive describing his feelings for the draft, can take the NFL Draft seriously when it comes time for it. And a team like the Super Bowl champs, along with the other 31 teams, are likely thinking about their “dream draft target” for April. But if it’s not the Rams who are thinking about who they can lure in, it’s certainly NFL analysts. Either way, the draft is about two months away and the Rams won’t select anyone until the 103rd overall pick — meaning they won’t take part of the Thursday, April 28 festivities but will hold off until Friday’s session. Via Bleacher Report’s Alex Kay on Thursday, February 24, the Rams could go “all in” on bolstering a crucial area that will need an upgrade...

    Cannabis shops across the San Francisco Bay Area have been thrown into dire straits as gangs of thieves broke into more than 15 shops throughout November during the series of 'smash-and-grab' robberies plaguing California.  Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong told reporters that 'hundreds' of vehicles targeted marijuana stores in Oakland last month, firing 175 shots and stealing about $5 million worth of products.  Alphonso 'Tucky' Blunt, owner of Blunts and Moore, told MJBizDaily that his store lost about $25,000 during a November 22 raid, where more than a dozen burglars ransacked the store.  'I know 25 or so businesses that got hit … and out of all those, the percentage I know that told me that they may not be able to reopen is about 50 percent.

    Officials in California sent word earlier this week that they planned to crack down on "smash and grab" robberies and flash-mob-style looting after numerous recent incidents up and down the state. But apparently not everybody got the message. At least two such incidents occurred in Los Angeles County on Black Friday, according to reports. In Lakewood, a group of suspects ages 15 to 20 stormed a Home Depot store around 8:30 p.m. and grabbed tools such as crowbars, mallets and sledgehammers before getting away in vehicles that were waiting outside, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported. One entire section of hammers was completely cleared out, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies told the station. As many as 10 vehicles pulled up outside the store and the thieves donned ski masks before launching their spree, KCBS-TV of Los Angeles reported.

    Satellite images show that the Chinese military has built scale models of U.S. aircraft carriers and warships for ballistic missile testing in the country’s northwest desert. The models are an exact outline of the kinds of ships the United States uses in the South China Sea. Satellites picked up at least one clear image of an aircraft carrier and two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, according to pictures from satellite imaging company Maxar acquired by the U.S. Naval Institute. “The mockups of several probable U.S. warships, along with other warships (mounted on rails and mobile), could simulate targets related to seeking/target acquisition testing,” said the AllSource Analysis summary cited by USNI News. "This, and the extensive detail of the mockups, including the placement of multiple sensors on and around the vessel targets, it is probable that this area is intended for multiple uses over time.” US WARNS CHINA: TAIWAN THREATS COULD TRIGGER MAJOR ACCIDENTAL CONFLICT China built similar models of U.S. ships in 2019, though they were dismantled later that year.

    A major drop in temperatures will follow a possible thunderstorm Saturday afternoon, following one of the warmest starts to October on record in the D.C. region. A cold front will reach the Interstate 95 corridor early in the afternoon, bringing gusty winds and the risk of an isolated strong-to-severe thunderstorm to the D.C. area, according to NBC Washington meteorologist Chuck Bell. The National Weather Service said “damaging wind gusts” could accompany the cold front. A strong cold front will cross the region this afternoon and help focus showers and thunderstorms, some of which, could be severe with damaging wind gusts. #DCwx #MDwx #VAwx #WVwx pic.twitter.com/GWL2wvn1kC — NWS Baltimore-Washington (@NWS_BaltWash) October 16, 2021 Bell forecasts the timing for the severe weather threat to be between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. along Interstate 81, between noon and 4 p.m. along I-95 and between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. in Southern Maryland and the Northern Neck of Virginia.

    As we are now in the planting season, acquiring and installing new plants in preparation for the burst of foliage and blossoms in the spring, it’s time to do some proactive gardening. Reactive gardening, in comparison, involves waiting for local garden centers to trot out small plants in bloom, then paying the price for an instant garden. By planning ahead, gardeners benefit from a good range of options, larger plants, lower costs, and greater sense of accomplishment. Once synchronized with the seasons, we have the challenges and opportunities for choosing plants. For 20 years, this San Pedro cactus (Trichocereus pachanoi) has grown to 30 feet tall in a Santa Cruz garden, and is now in full bloom. Last month, as described in a recent column, the City of Santa Cruz returned this plant to the list of plants not for personal use, personal possession and personal cultivation.   (Tom Karwin — Contributed) For some gardeners, plant selection is easy. For example, when you have a gap in your rose bed, the project is to find a new rose that appeals to...
    The investigation into shots fired in the Hudson Valley found that a school bus in the area was not the target, according to school and police officials. In Dutchess County, first responders in the City of Poughkeepsie responded to a stretch of Forbus Street shortly after 3 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7, where there were reports of shots fired in the area. At the scene, police said that investigators recovered multiple shell casings in the area of 20 Forbus Street, with witnesses describing a person who ran from the scene as a potential suspect. The initial police investigation found that a school bus may have been the target, but the City of Poughkeepsie School District later clarified that was not the case after speaking with Police Capt. Richard Wilson. According to the district, a bus driver reported seeing someone firing shots in the vicinity to his dispatcher, then left the scene to ensure the children were safe. That information was then relayed to the police, prompting the initial confusion. “The Poughkeepsie City School District reached out to the parents of...
    A shooting range will be closed for 90 days following multiple complaints about bullet strikes in a neighboring home, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday. After the DNR received multiple calls regarding bullets striking a home near the North Pioneer Road shooting area in Benzie County, it decided to close the shooting range for all target shooting for 90 days to resolve the situation, according to the emergency order . "Everyone should have the opportunity to safely enjoy Michigan's public lands, but that opportunity comes with a responsibility to treat both the lands and other users with respect and courtesy," DNR Director Dan Eichinger said. "We will not reopen this area to target shooting until public safety concerns have been fully addressed and rectified."

    SAN FRANCISCO – A pair of Bay Area men have been charged with conspiring to blow up the John L. Burton Democratic Headquarters in Sacramento following the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, according to a newly unsealed federal indictment. Ian Benjamin Rogers, 45, of Napa, and Jarrod Copeland, 37, of Vallejo, have been charged with conspiracy to destroy by fire or explosive a building used in interstate commerce. Rogers is charged with additional weapons violations, including one count of possession of unregistered destructive devices and three counts of possession of machine guns. Copeland is charged with an additional count of destruction of records. According to the indictment, Joe Biden’s win over Donald Trump spurred Rogers and Copeland to begin planning an attack against a target or targets associated with Democrats. By Nov. 29, 2020, the men had allegedly identified the headquarters in the state capitol as their first target and made plans to attack it using incendiary devices. “Rogers and Copeland believed that the attacks would start what they called a ‘movement,’” the indictment stated. The men allegedly used...

    CUPERTINO — Target will close two Bay Area stores in late June following a wide-ranging review of all of the company’s stores, the retailing giant said Tuesday. The shutdown of the Target stores will trigger the loss of a combined 75 jobs at the two Bay Area locations being jolted by the closures, according to Target. The affected stores are in Cupertino and San Francisco, the retailer said. “Target will close two stores, located at 1830 Ocean Ave. in San Francisco and 19499 Stevens Creek Blvd. in Cupertino, on June 26, 2021,” Target spokesperson Jacqueline DeBuse said. The retailer intends to do what it can to place as many affected workers as possible in new Target locations. All eligible Target employees will be offered the chance to transfer to a new store in their area. “The decision to close a store is always difficult and follows a rigorous annual process to evaluate the performance of every store in the portfolio and maintain the overall health of the business,” DeBuse said.

    The Town of Trion has added a new outdoor recreational activity for the community, disc golf. Disc golf is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target; it is played using rules similar to golf. Players complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee pad or area toward a target, throwing again from where the previous throw landed, until the target is reached. Usually, the number of throws a player uses to reach each target is tallied (often in relation to par), and players seek to complete each hole in the lowest number of total throws. Trion’s Disk Golf course will feature 18 holes, beginning by the river where the old apartments used to stand, going to the park, and looping back around to the Town Hall/ Rec Center. The course besides offering a fun activity will be a great source of exercise as it is estimated to be 3 miles. “I’m excited that Chattooga county will finally have a course for...
    By Nora Neus and Chris James | CNN A California state senator introduced a bill Monday night to repeal a law commonly known as “walking while trans” that advocates say has led to decades of discrimination against the transgender community, particularly Black and brown trans women. State Sen. Scott Wiener, a Democrat representing San Francisco and neighboring areas, drafted SB 357, which would overturn the “loitering for purpose of prostitution” law. When California’s current anti-loitering code went into effect in 1995, the intention was to make it easier to arrest a person before they engaged in sex work, Wiener said. Much of these decisions were left to the discretion of police officers, which advocates say has led to wrongful arrests. Citing a study from the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law, Wiener found Black adults accounted for 56.1% of all charges related to this anti-loitering law, despite making up only 8.9% of Los Angeles’ population. “This is one of those laws based exclusively on stereotypes and profiling,” Wiener told CNN. “You don’t have to actually do anything to...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police are increasingly using a strategy of deploying a large group of officers in one part of the metro area to spot drunken drivers and get them off the road. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department stopped using DUI checkpoints and instead periodically deploys a large strike team of officers, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported. The idea is ”to got out and be hunters," police Lt. Bret Ficklin said. “We want to take an active, proactive approach to finding DUI drivers. We’re sending resources around the whole area and actively look for DUI drivers.” The strike team usually picks one Saturday night each month to send dozens of officers from multiple agencies into one area but this month chose a Sunday night to coincide with the Super Bowl. “Historically, it’s a time when people get together, they want to have a good time,” Ficklin said. “That good time can include drinking alcohol or taking recreational drugs.” Other agencies partnering with Las Vegas police that night in south and southeast Las Vegas were the...
    Several Swedish politicians in the municipality of Sundbyberg have made reports to their local police after far-left pro-migrant activists allegedly turned up at their homes to demand migrants be allowed to stay in the area. Local politicians belonging to the Social Democrats, the Liberals and the Centre Party, said that members of the far-left activist group came to their homes to pressure them to allow migrants to stay in the area despite their apartment contracts being temporary. Peter Schilling, chairman of the municipal board and a Social Democrat, called the tactics used by the protesters as “pure mafia methods,” newspaper Aftonbladet reports. A press release from several local politicians stated, “No one has been injured, but several found these visits very unpleasant and that the purpose was to be intimidated.

    Police were victims of a "swatting incident" after officers responded to a call from a man who was threatening to blow-up and harm patrons at a store in Rockland County. The incident happened around 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 10, when the Spring Valley Police Department received a phone call from a male in the Target Store at the Spring Valley Marketplace who stated he was armed, had multiple hostages, and placed explosives throughout the store, said Spring Valley Police Det. Matthew Galli. The Spring Valley Police Department immediately dispatched units to the location and the incident turned into a multi-departmental operation being lead by the Spring Valley Police Department, Galli said. The Target Store was evacuated and cleared by agencies on the scene as well as numerous canine units from throughout the state. Once the Target Store was deemed safe of any immediate threat, the store was re-opened as well as the rest of vehicular and pedestrian traffic to the Spring Valley Marketplace, Galli said. "Although the investigation is currently pending, it appears that the initial call was a 'swatting' incident," Galli said. The following agencies assisted in the operation:...
    Loon’s AI can figure out the optimal route for balloons significantly faster than the previous navigation system. It does so with more efficiency as well. Balloons can travel similar or greater distances than before with less power. Loon’s record flight duration is 312 days — it set that benchmark earlier this year. Perhaps the AI system will be able to keep balloons aloft for even longer. Loon Loon and Google AI used simulations to train the RL model through trial and error before real-world testing began in Peru. The team then assessed its capabilities directly against a human-crafted system called StationSeeker with a 39-day test over the Pacific Ocean. The AI was able to keep balloons in target areas for longer periods while using less energy. That’s important, as it will help to provide more consistent internet coverage to people in a given area. StationSeeker tended to head straight for a specific target location, but it often flew by and had to reverse course. The AI system was more concerned with staying in the target area as passively as possible...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is expected to file a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that San Francisco Bay Area Tech giant Google has been abusing its dominance in online search to stifle competition and harm consumers, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. The litigation marks the government’s most significant act to protect competition since its groundbreaking case against Microsoft more than 20 years ago. The suit could be an opening salvo ahead of other major government antitrust actions, given ongoing investigations of major tech companies including Apple, Amazon and Facebook at both the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission. Lawmakers and consumer advocates have long accused Google, whose corporate parent Alphabet Inc. has a market value just over $1 trillion and is headquartered in Mountain View, of abusing its dominance in online search and advertising to stifle competition and boost its profits. Critics contend that multibillion-dollar fines and mandated changes in Google’s practices imposed by European regulators in recent years weren’t severe enough and that structural changes are needed for Google to change its conduct....

    JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli aircraft struck what the army said was a Hamas military target in the southern Gaza Strip late Monday, shortly after Gaza militants fired a rocket into Israel. The rocket landed in an open area and did not cause any damage or injuries, Israeli media reported. But it broke a weekslong lull in the area. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket fire. But Israel holds Gaza’s Hamas rulers responsible for all fire out of the territory and usually responds to rocket attacks with airstrikes on Hamas targets. There were no reports of casualties from the Israeli airstrike. In the Israeli-occuped West Bank, meanwhile, the Israeli army said it opened fire at three Palestinian men who were throwing firebombs at troops near the settlement of Einav. It said one of the suspects was hit, while the two others managed to flee. There were no further details on the condition of the man who was shot.
