    A NAZI treasure map which could reveal the secret location of a World War Two jewel haul has been released after 78 years. The map is rumoured to lead to buried Nazi loot worth millions of pounds stolen from a bank by Hitler's soldiers. 2The map is among hundreds of secret papers being released to the public for the first timeCredit: National Archives 2The map is thought to show the spot where the Nazi haul has been hiddenCredit: Rex The document is among hundreds of secret papers being made available to the public for the first time. The papers have been released in the Netherlands - with "clues to a never-found treasure". It's believed watches, diamonds, and other valuable items of jewellery were stolen after Hitler's men raided a bank in the city of Arnhem. And the map is thought to show the exact spot where the Nazi haul has been hidden in the Betuwe region of Gelderland, NL Times reports. Annet Waalkens, of the National Archives, told a Dutch broadcaster: "During the defense of Arnhem, there was an explosion...
    By Jennifer Korn and Clare Duffy | CNN Business The Supreme Court’s Friday ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade is almost certain to spark a wave of new state legislation taking aim at abortion rights, and to reinforce existing laws that prohibit and, in some cases, criminalize the procedure. Among the wide-ranging potential implications of the decision are concerns about the potential use of personal data to punish people who look for information about or access to abortion services online. In some of the most restrictive states, digital rights experts warn that people’s search histories, location data, messages and other digital information could be used by law enforcement agencies investigating or prosecuting abortion-related cases. On Friday, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, the 50-year-old ruling that guaranteed a person’s Constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy before viability (usually around 24 weeks). A draft of the opinion leaked in May. Overturning the landmark 1973 court ruling is expected to transform the landscape of reproductive health in America, leaving abortion policy up to individual states and potentially paving the way...

    GOOGLE is keeping tabs on you - but there are ways to limit their access to your information, according to technology experts. From your online activity to your location history to your Youtube search and watch history, the tech giant has proven that there's a lot to learn from the "public" information that internet users make available. 1Since 2019, Google has made multiple changes to the options provided to users in controlling how location data is collectedCredit: Getty Since 2019, Google has made multiple changes to the options provided to users in controlling how location data is collected. Google's tracking services have even sparked legal action from many state attorneys general, amongst claims that the search engine has deceived users by making it "nearly impossible" for people to stop their location from being tracked. Attorneys general from Indiana, Texas, Washington state and Washington, DC are all currently in the process of suing Google over its use of location data. “Google falsely led consumers to believe that changing their account and device settings would allow customers to protect their...
    An In-N-Out Burger location in San Francisco was forced to temporarily close earlier this month after failing to comply with the city’s proof of vaccination requirements. On Oct. 14, representatives of the city’s Department of Public Health shut down the chain’s location at 333 Jefferson St. in Fisherman’s Wharf, according to a statement by Arnie Wensinger, In-N-Out’s chief legal and business officer. Public health officials told employees they were being shut down because they weren’t stopping customers who didn’t have proper vaccination documentation from coming inside, Wensinger said. In a statement issued to The Times, the city’s Department of Public Health said they issued a “final Notice of Violation and a Notice of Closure,” to the In-N-Out location for failing to comply with the city’s public health order. The property’s owner was also issued a notice of violation, according to the city’s statement. “Since the Notice of Closure was issued, the business has taken steps to comply and has since resumed operations for outdoor dining and take-out only,” according to the public heath department’s statement. ...
    dissentlakeland/Facebook After a weekend soft opening, the second location of St. Pete’s Dissent Craft Brewing Company is opening at noon on Friday, Oct. 15 in Downtown Lakeland.

    Japan’s health ministry on Monday released the names of three people it accused of violating a state-mandated coronavirus quarantine period after returning to Japan from overseas in recent days, the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) reported Tuesday. Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare on August 2 published the names of three individuals on its website for allegedly violating previously agreed to protocol upon returning to Japan from abroad. The announcement marked the first time Japan’s government has “named and shamed” quarantine violators since threatening to do so in January. “Three people in the 20 to 39 age range were named on the ministry’s website on Monday. They arrived in Japan on July 21 from South Korea and Hawaii. All three tested negative for the coronavirus at their points of entry,” according to NHK. “The ministry says the three individuals it named never provided their location data and have not responded to video calls. It says their actions were deemed to be intentional,” the broadcaster added. Japan currently requires all travelers arriving in the country to provide a negative coronavirus test...
    GOOGLE Maps has released an update making it easier to avoid people on the train and other public transport. The app is hoping to help people nervous about returning to public transit as more workplaces open up after more than a year of workING from home. 1NINTCHDBPICT000315253714Credit: Getty - Contributor Google Maps is expanding its transit crowd predictions which will narrow down how many seats are available on a train. It had previously based its "live" data on trends of how crowded a train would generally be at any given time of the day. The new update, however, hopes to give riders the chance to see crowd data right down to each transit car, according to Gizmodo. This is currently being piloted in New York on the Long Island Rail Road and Sydney on Transport for New South Wales. Trains will be marked with the same "live indicator" that shows "busier than usual" or "not too busy," with exact numbers showing which train cars are the least populated.

    A hiker who went missing in the mountains of the Angeles National Forest in California was found safe on Tuesday after the public helped to pinpoint his location using a photo he had sent a friend, authorities said. Rene Compean was reported missing Monday evening after he texted a friend that he was lost and his cell phone was dying, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. The friend gave deputies a photo showing Compean’s dirt-covered legs dangling from a rocky cliff he had sent earlier in the hike in the hopes of learning his location.

    Apple has promised to open up its Find My app to third-party accessory makers. But ahead of that, there’s a new tool that will let anybody make their own Bluetooth tracking tag to use with the Find My network so they can track its location. OpenHaystack is a new open-source tool developed by security researchers at the Secure Mobile Networking Lab, who have essentially reverse-engineered the way Apple devices register themselves to the Find My mesh network. It is, in short, a way to create your own DIY AirTags today. OpenHaystack works via a custom Mac app that can be used to track the location of custom tags that you create. As of right now, the tool has direct support to make a tracking tag using the BBC micro:bit mini computer, though other Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) device support could be added by other developers in the future. Once registered on Apple’s Find My network, the OpenHaystack app will be able to report the tag’s location just like Apple’s Find My app works for iPhones and other Apple devices....
    A Novato couple who proposed a cannabis delivery business in the San Marin neighborhood has pulled their application with the city after hundreds of residents raised opposition. Longtime residents Jennifer Durham and Justin Pool had aimed to base their business, Highway 420, at 205 San Marin Drive. The operation was among four cannabis business applicants that received conditional approval last month from the City Council. “They will search for a new location to be considered by the City Council at a later date,” Mayor Pat Eklund said at the council’s meeting on Tuesday. Attempts to contact Durham and Pool were unsuccessful. While the business proposal and location complied with the city’s cannabis ordinance, many San Marin residents opposed the location for reasons such as its proximity to San Marin High School, potential traffic issues and outright opposition to cannabis legalization. A change.org petition calling for the council to reverse its approval received more than 1,000 signatures. Residents raised concerns that students would somehow be able to more easily obtain marijuana if the business was nearby. The city prohibits storefront...
    Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed in a Friday appearance on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that sheltering in an “insecure location” during the riot at the U.S. Capitol “seemed like a safer bet” than sheltering in the “secure location” with other members of Congress who sympathize with “white supremacists.” Ocasio-Cortez previously streamed an Instagram live where she discussed her experience at the Capitol on the day of the riot and called some unnamed members of Congress “QAnon and white supremacist sympathizers” and “frankly, white supremacist.” Host Rachel Maddow referenced the video and asked Ocasio-Cortez to talk about why she felt unsafe around other members of Congress and didn’t trust them to not reveal her location during the riot. (RELATED: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Claims ‘We Came Close To Half The House Nearly Dying’ During Capitol Riot) “There are members of Congress who have made public comments, comments like that Muslim Americans should not hold public office,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “they’ve made public comments that are quite closely aligned with the beliefs of white supremacists and white supremacist sympathizer organizations, and...
    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Friday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that she could not stay in the secure location with Republican members of Congress during the Capital Hill riots because they sympathize with a white supremacist causes. Maddow said, “Let’s talk about that in terms of members of Congress and congressional staff as well. You are saying that you didn’t feel safe going to that extraction point because you believe, knowing them, that there were members of Congress you didn’t trust not to betray your location and put you in danger in that way. Can you talk a bit more about that, why you believed that, if what you believed about that, what you know about that is something that should be part of the investigation? Or is it part of the investigation that’s been announced into whether members of Congress are complicit here?” Ocasio-Cortez said, “I can’t speak as to what is currently under investigation specifically or not, but there are members of Congress that have made public comments. Comments like that Muslim Americans should not hold public...

    The Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog will probe the Department’s tracking of American’s phone data without a warrant. In a letter to five senators, the DHS’ Office of Inspector General (OIG) said it will determine if the DHS “and its components have developed, updated, and adhered to policies related to cell-phone surveillance devices.” The investigation was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.  The OIG is also looking into the use by DHS of open source intelligence which includes the “use of information provided by the public via cellular devices, such as social media status updates, geo-tagged photos, and specific location check-ins.”  The watchdog opened the investigation in response to an inquiry from Democratic Sens.

    Adventure tour guide Sylvan Christensen has attempted to justify why he along with a group of others removed the mysterious metal monolith in the Utah desert  The adventure tour guide who admitted to removing a 12ft tall monolith from the Utah desert has said he did it because the remote site was being overrun by tourists.   Sylvan Christensen, who identified himself as one of the culprits behind the removal of the metal sculpture in social media posts on Tuesday, said that he was concerned that the sudden interest would see the site ruined by so many people driving, biking and even flying to the location - with some even 'pooing in the desert'.  In an exclusive and lengthy statement to DailyMail.com Sylvan Christensen explained his reasoning, namely that the desert was not ready for a stampede of visitors to come and see the unusual attraction 'We removed the Utah Monolith because there are clear precedents for how we share and standardize the use of our public lands, natural wildlife, native plants, fresh water sources, and human impacts upon them.

    In a scene that could have been taken from the science fiction classic “2001: A Space Odyssey,” officials in Utah have discovered a mysterious metallic monolith in the remote southeastern part of the state. Public safety workers spotted the object November 18 from a helicopter while conducting a count of bighorn sheep, according to a news statement. Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau and Utah Division of Wildlife Resources crew members walk near a metal monolith they discovered in a remote area of Red Rock Country in Utah, Nov. 18, 2020.So far, there is no indication of who could have placed the 3- to 3.6-meter-tall monolith in that location. “It is illegal to install structures or art without authorization on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you’re from,” the Utah Department of Public Safety said in a statement. “That’s been about the strangest thing that I’ve come across out there in all my years of flying,” pilot Bret Hutchings told KSL-TV.

    Longmont will soon allow medical marijuana delivery by approved dispensaries, and they don't even have to be located there. Approved unanimously by the Longmont City Council on October 13, the new ordinance allows medical dispensaries to start delivering within the town starting on October 26. But it may take longer before patients will actually see medication being dropped off at their doors. While marijuana stores don't need to be located within Longmont city limits to qualify for this new program, they must be licensed for delivery by the state Marijuana Enforcement Division as well as the City of Longmont. Although there are several medical dispensaries located nearby in unincorporated Boulder County, there is only one licensed medical dispensary, Twin Peaks, in Longmont. Neither Twin Peaks nor those other Boulder County dispensaries have their MED permits yet.Related Stories Debate Over Future of Denver Marijuana Licensing Continues Colorado Towns Considering New Marijuana Businesses Aurora Slowly Opening Up to Marijuana Delivery Marijuana Deals Near YouTwin Peaks co-owner Rita Tsalyuk says that she'll apply for state and local delivery licenses "very soon, within a week or so."

    Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Trader Joe's has set the bar for safety among grocery retailers in Colorado — but even the best practices can't guarantee that the novel coronavirus won't gain admittance. According to the latest report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the chain's Colorado Springs branch has suffered an outbreak. It's one in a wave of site-based infections that's set a new record for the third week in a row. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis. The CDPHE's October 14 update lists 897 total outbreaks in the state so far: 274 active, 623 resolved. That's an increase of 64 over the October 7 total of 833, which was 63 outbreaks higher than September 30's 53. And the current number would be higher if not for...
    Legendary New York comedy club Dangerfield’s has closed. “Caddyshack” star Rodney Dangerfield opened the Upper East Side club in 1969, and everyone from Jerry Seinfeld to Jim Carrey to Bill Hicks and many, many more stand-up superstars have performed there. In a post on its website, the club’s management announced “with great sadness” that “after 50 years of continuous operations we will be closing our New York City venue effective immediately.” It added, “The State of New York and New York City’s continuing Covid-19 lockdown, the banning of public venues, no official guidance as to when or if such public gatherings will be allowed or in what capacity, has placed a severe financial burden on Dangerfield’s making operations in New York City untenable.” The post said that “once the Covid-19 crisis passes Dangerfield’s will be reopening in a suitable public venue.” The organization promised it would “rebuild [the] iconic comedy club and continue to produce the funniest comedy shows the world has ever known!

    So far in October, Denver Public Health & Environment has issued seventeen citations for violating the city's public-health order. Those ticketed include giant retailers such as Walmart, King Soopers and Sam's Club, as well as a restaurant that allegedly allowed a big party to be staged behind its location and even a private school at which a majority of students weren't wearing facial coverings. These enforcement actions have taken place against a troubling backdrop. During his October 13 press conference, Governor Jared Polis shared Colorado's worst COVID-19 data since the pandemic began and noted that Denver is driving the terrible stats, along with Adams County. The numbers in the Mile High are a big reason why Denver Public Schools has now announced that in-person learning for middle school and high school students will be delayed until November 9 at the earliest. Even before Polis's revelations, Mayor Michael Hancock acknowledged that the city had reached a make-or-break moment regarding the novel coronavirus, and teased a new crackdown on those violating health orders in an effort to stave off greater restrictions on capacity...
    President Donald Trump will hold a public gathering on the White House South Lawn on Saturday with hundreds of people for his first event since being diagnosed with the coronavirus and then will travel to Florida on Monday for a campaign rally.  Trump is expected to give remarks on Saturday from one of the balconies at the White House to the crowd, which will include people attending an event elsewhere in Washington staged by a Trump supporter, Candace Owens, The New York Times and ABC News reported. Then he'll go to Sanford, Florida, on Monday, for a Make America Great Again campaign rally, his re-election campaign announced. Trump was originally scheduled to go to Sanford on the Friday he tested positive for COVID.  The events were scheduled after Trump's physician, Dr. Sean Conley, stated in a update late Thursday that Trump's medical team felt that he would be safe to return to public engagements by Saturday.  Saturday would mark nine days since Trump publicly announced testing positive for COVID-19. Most scientists think that viral shedding continues for about 10 days after symptoms...
    Hours after we called out King Soopers for slacking on COVID-19 safety procedures, including a lack of crowd control and mask monitoring, the October 7 report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment publicly identified two of the grocery giant's metro stores as outbreak sites — the first time such a designation had been made in months. One of those stores was King Soopers #1, at 1331 Speer Boulevard. The company's most iconic Denver location, at Ninth and Corona, had been declared an outbreak site on May 12, and still marks the worst attack of the novel coronavirus suffered by King Soopers to date. By the time the CDPHE formally labeled that outbreak as resolved, thirteen staff members had contracted the disease and two had died from it. But one customer suggests that store didn't learn its lesson from the outbreak, and recently sent this missive to King Soopers' management.Related Stories COVID-19: First Denver King Soopers Adds to New Outbreaks Record Denver Stores Dropping Many COVID-19 Safety Procedures COVID-19: Worker at King Soopers With Deadly Outbreak Tells All Marijuana...
    Hours after we called out major Denver-area grocery stores, among others, for slacking on COVID-19 safety even as hospitalizations from the novel coronavirus are on the rise, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment released its weekly outbreaks report; a record number of new entries include the first appearances in months by King Soopers and Costco outposts. Two King Soopers stores make the list, including King Soopers #1, at 1331 Speer Boulevard. The Costco is at 6400 West 92nd Avenue in Westminster. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis.Related Stories Denver Stores Dropping Many COVID-19 Safety Procedures Polis Rips Trump as Terrible COVID-19 Example CSU Kicking CU Boulder's A$$ on COVID-19 Safety The CDPHE's October 7 update lists 833 outbreaks: 236 active, 597 considered resolved.

    In the past week or so, four states — New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Mexico — have categorized Colorado as a high-risk location because of rising COVID-19 rates, and mandated that visitors from Colorado quarantine prior to moving freely within their borders. While some of the numbers that led to Colorado's recent undesirable status have started to moderate, the latest figures from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment show that current hospitalizations have risen to a level not seen for months. Here are the COVID-19 stats in major categories as updated by the CDPHE at 4 p.m. October 4, juxtaposed with those from one week earlier. 73,076 cases (up 3,367 from September 27) 7,673 hospitalizations (up 150 from September 27) 64 counties (unchanged) 2,068 deaths among cases (up 27 from September 27) 1,968 deaths due to COVID-19 (up 28 from September 27) 798 outbreaks (up 62 from September 27) Related Stories Polis: White House COVID-19 Safety Protocols Weren't Good Enough Jared Polis's Mom on Trump Racism and New Hate Groups Film COVID-19: Greek House Sh*t Show...
    Not all of Halloween is canceled in Colorado in 2020, even if most people are still trying to figure out what the holiday is going to look like during a pandemic that's already causing nightmares. With COVID-19 limiting our ability to get together, many people are on the hunt for safe events to celebrate the spooky season. Lucky for them, there are still plenty of haunted attractions this year, from corn mazes to drive-ins, all with social distancing and health guidelines in place.

    The latest weekly COVID-19 outbreaks report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has the most entries since the start of the pandemic, a stunning 53. A large chunk of the sites included in this batch is associated with educational institutions, paced by Greek houses at major colleges and universities: seven, bringing the total to fourteen over just two weeks. And that's not counting the positive or probable novel coronavirus cases at the University of Colorado Boulder, currently nearly 1,700. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis.

    Public health officials are keeping the British people in the dark about the location of new coronavirus outbreaks to prevent “community tensions” and “hate crimes”. Members of the public “are not being given a full, accurate, picture of where coronavirus cases are — to protect people who test positive from possible hate attacks,” according to Jane Haynes, Politics & People Editor at BirminghamLive, following an interview with Dr Helen Carter, deputy director for Public Health England (PHE) in England’s West Midlands. “We have had some incredibly upset people who have spoken of neighbours not speaking to them, of communities not being supportive,” Dr Carter told the reporter. “Having supported some incredibly distressed members of the public there is an element of wanting to protect them from quite nasty hate crimes,” she added.

    ADDISON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Addison’s annual fireworks show will be held at an “undisclosed location” this year and will be streamed online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The town announced the Kaboom Town fireworks show, which is held every year to celebrate the Fourth of July, will be at an out-of-town location and will be closed to the public.
