    A veteran LAPD officer was so traumatized by the sharing among her colleagues of fake nude photos of her that she was hospitalized on Christmas Eve with panic and stress, a court has heard. Capt. Lillian Carranza, who is now the head of the Gangs and Narcotics division, claims that she told her bosses the topless photos which purported to show her were not real and had been photoshopped - but they refused to tell her colleagues. She claims her superiors knew about the photo, but did not tell her, and she only learnt about it when a friend in the force told her. She is suing the LAPD for sexual harassment and creating a hostile environment, and is seeking damages. Carranza's attorney, Greg Smith, told the court on Thursday that she was left so humiliated by the situation she sank into a deep depression, and had to be taken to hospital on Christmas Eve with soaring blood pressure.  Capt. Lillian Carranza, who is now the head of the Gangs and Narcotics division, is suing the LAPD over sexual harassment...
    The Yankees’ clubhouse was empty when it opened after Thursday night’s game. The music, which is always on after a win, was down low with the dance lights flashing just as they have after every win this season. There was no stink champagne or beer, nothing out of the ordinary after a win, even though the Bombers had just clinched their sixth straight trip to the playoffs. “Yeah, you never want to take it for granted. We’re in the dance and we got a chance now,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said after the 5-4 win over the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium, which clinched the playoff spot. “Obviously we’re after the division crown but you’ve been around this game long enough and you appreciate every time you get the opportunity and we’ve punched that ticket. We got a lot more business to do here in the regular season that we want to get done, but you know, it starts a long time ago. Lot of work, a lot of blood sweat and tears to get to this point adversity highs...

    Retired NBA forward-turned-media personality Matt Barnes has backed off criticism of the Boston Celtics for suspending head coach Ime Udoka over an alleged affair with an unidentified female staffer. Barnes, 42, originally slammed the suspension on Thursday, only to reverse course on Friday when he learned the 'all the facts,' which he says are '100 times uglier than any of us thought.' Udoka was suspended late Thursday night for the upcoming 2022-23 season over 'multiple' violations of team rules, involving a single female team staff member. ESPN, The Athletic, and The Associated Press have since reported that Udoka was having in inappropriate, but consensual relationship with the woman.  However, The Athletic raised questions about the relationship Thursday night, reporting that Udoka was accused by the woman of making 'unwanted comments' to her, prompting the Celtics to launch internal interviews that ultimately led to his suspension. On Friday, in a self-shot Instagram video, Barnes explained that he deleted his previous post criticizing the decision because he learned more information. 'Since I'm a part of the media now, and I try not...
    Share this: A man charged with assault for allegedly slapping former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani on the back filed a notice of claim against the city Thursday for $2 million for false arrest. Daniel Gill was seen on a video in June touching Giuliani on the back with an open hand while Giuliani was at a Staten Island ShopRite supermarket supporting his son Andrew’s campaign for the GOP nomination for New York governor. Gill said, “What’s up scumbag?” according to a notice of claim released Thursday. While Giuliani appeared to barely react in the video, he later said it felt “like somebody shot me” or that he had been hit by a boulder.

    Donald Trump stepped up his outreach to believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory on Thursday, posting a video filled with references to the movement that sees him in messianic terms. The video, first posted to Trump social media network TruthSocial by a QAnon believer, features a slideshow of QAnon memes. The images allude to QAnon supporters’ beliefs that Democratic leaders are Satan-worshiping, cannibalistic pedophiles, and that Trump will soon execute them or imprison them in Guantanamo Bay. Trump reposted the video on his own account on Thursday night. Trump’s promotion of the meme video marks the latest step in his recent campaign promoting QAnon. The images feature QAnon slogans like “Where we go one, we go all,” and reference “The Storm” — the moment QAnon believers think Trump will imprison his enemies and usher in a sort of fascist utopia. Other pictures included an edited image of Trump holding a playing card with “Q” on it, and another featuring Trump promising to take on the “Satanists” and “pedos.” The former president has become more overt about his attempts to promote...
    Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman missed Friday’s practice because of a personal matter but is expected to play Sunday against the New England Patriots, coach John Harbaugh said. Wide receiver Devin Duvernay has also been cleared from concussion protocol and will play Sunday. Bateman wasn’t listed on the injury report Thursday and didn’t appear to be limited in the locker room after practice. He leads the team with 167 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

He has six catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns this season. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) had a recovery day and did not participate Friday, Harbaugh said, while running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) practiced fully. ()

    Legendary NFL wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. playfully warned that he would suit up once more if Pittsburgh Steelers players weren’t careful.  The Cleveland Browns may have handily won with one-man wrecking crew Nick Chubb, but Jacoby Brissett’s connection with Amari Cooper shouldn’t be overlooked. Cooper caught seven passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in their Thursday night victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. And if Steve Smith Sr. suited up to take on the Steelers, he guarantees that some of those Steelers wouldn’t have even seen the field for the game. Smith Sr., who is now an analyst for NFL Network, was chatting on the sideline with his mic in hand when rambunctious Steelers players hyped up for the game came awfully close to knocking Smith off of his.

    After removing his shirt and using it to cover a security camera, a bouncer at a New York sports bar brutally beat a 32-year-old customer, who would die in the hospital 11 days later, prosecutors alleged. Long Island’s David Cruz, age 31, of Medford, was indicted for first-degree manslaughter Thursday, Sept. 22, in Suffolk County in the death of Jake Scott, of Centereach. Cruz was working as a bouncer at Tailgaters Bar in Holbrook on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022, when he got into an argument with Scott shortly before 3 a.m., according to the Suffolk County DA’s Office. Aware of the building’s exterior surveillance camera, Cruz repeatedly attempted to lure Scott out of the camera’s view, prosecutors said. After failing to do so, Cruz was captured on video standing on a chair in order to reach the camera before removing his shirt and covering it. With the camera now obstructed, and seemingly unaware of another security camera at a nearby business that would capture the attack, he unleashed a series of brutal punches on Scott, prosecutors said. Cruz,...
    A Los Angeles news anchor has been fired after going off-script and calling out his own television station live on air over the departure of his beloved co-anchor. Mark Mester, of KTLA, was first suspended and then given his marching orders Thursday after binning a pre-prepared script and launching an impassioned apology to 'best friend' Lynette Romero, who had left the station a few days earlier. 'I want to start off right now by offering up an apology to you,' Mester said live on air Saturday. 'What the viewers experienced was rude, it was cruel, it was inappropriate and we are so sorry. The station had announced the departure of Romero, a long-serving and popular host of the weekend morning show, without giving her an opportunity to say goodbye to viewers, much to their outrage.

    Nine days after a teenage student died of an apparent overdose from a fentanyl-laced pill, Los Angeles Unified School District officials announced plans to combat the national opioid epidemic, including distributing naloxone nasal sprays – used to reverse an opioid overdose in an emergency – to schools over the coming weeks. Naloxone, which often goes by the brand name Narcan, will be provided by the county’s Department of Public Health at no cost to the district, which has also received support from The Los Angeles Trust for Children’s Health and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, officials said on Thursday, Sept. 22. There are currently enough doses for the district’s high schools, which will receive the medication over the next two weeks, officials said. Additional doses will be distributed to middle and elementary campuses as they become available. L.A. Unified has approximately 1,400 schools. Nurses and other health care providers on campuses have been or will be trained to administer naloxone, with training to begin next month. Los Angeles Unified School District School Board member Monica Garcia speaks during...
    (CNN)The state of Alabama halted the execution of an inmate Thursday evening due to an inability to meet protocols before a midnight deadline, officials say.Alan Eugene Miller was scheduled to be executed by lethal injection after a US Supreme Court ruling earlier Thursday vacated a lower court injunction. But officials were unable to access Miller's veins within certain time limits, according to AL.com. "Due to the time constraints resulting in the lateness of the court proceedings, the execution was called off once it was determined the condemned's veins could not be accessed in accordance with our protocol before the expiration of the death warrant," said Alabama Department of Corrections Commissioner John Hamm, according to AL.com.

    British Prime Minister Liz Truss and U.S. President Joe Biden formally met for the first time at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, following clashes in economic policy between the two leaders.Wpa Pool | Getty Images LONDON — The British government is set to announce sweeping tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy Friday, in a controversial mini-budget showcasing the lengths to which new Prime Minister Liz Truss is willing to go to overhaul U.K. economic policy even as it draws political ire. Truss — whose "Trussonomics" policy stance has been likened to that of her political idols Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher — has said she is willing to slash taxes at the top end of the economic spectrum in a bid to boost U.K. growth, in a strategy typically dubbed "trickle-down" economics. But the approach, which comes as Britain faces its worst cost-of-living crisis in decades, has attracted criticism from both U.K. political opponents and Downing Street's hereto closest international ally — the U.S. president. Biden, in a tweet Tuesday, said he was "sick and...

    Each step Trey Mancini took to his locker in the Houston Astros’ clubhouse at Camden Yards on Thursday felt familiar but was oh so different. Getting off a plane at BWI Marshall Airport, then heading up Interstate 295 into Baltimore? It was a “drive that I made 1,000 times probably, for a lot of different reasons,” Mancini said hours before he faced his former team for the first time at Camden Yards. He arrived at the Orioles’ home ballpark via the Astros’ team bus, rather than driving himself and parking in the player lot. Inside the tunnel in the stadium’s lower level, he walked farther toward the third base side than he ever had, heading to the visitors’ clubhouse instead of the one he spent parts of five seasons with a designated locker in. “It’s so familiar,” Mancini said, “but you gotta remember that you’re here as a visitor now.” He was welcomed as if it was still home. As Mancini warmed up before the game, the Orioles played a minutelong tribute video on the Camden Yards scoreboard that ended...
    White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said Thursday that President Joe Biden is running for re-election - he just can't phrase it that way yet.   'Well, you know, as he said, he intends to run and that's kind of the formulation he has to give to not like trigger federal election law and require us to file a bunch of forms,' Klain said at the Atlantic Festival in Washington. 'That is definitely his intention. Obviously, something could happen.' Klain was asked about Biden's political future after the president gave himself some wiggle room during Sunday's interview on 60 Minutes.  In his sit-down with Scott Pelley, Biden also pointed to Federal Election Commission regulations, but added, 'it's much too early to make that kind of decision.'  'As he said he's a believer in fate,' Klain continued. 'You know, he's seen all kinds of things in his life, he's not gonna say where he will be in December today.'  'He respects the fact that a lot of things can happen, but it is his intention to run,' the White House chief of...
    The first day of Fall got off to a rough start for one shopper at the Westfield Wheaton Mall, where there was a large car fire that broke out in the parking garage early on Thursday morning. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services (MCFRS) responded to the mall at approximately 10 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22, when a fire was reported on the ground level of a garage near JCPenney’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods, according to Chief Spokesperson for MCFRS Pete Piringer. Upon arrival, Pringer said that firefighters found the vehicle “well involved,” though they were able to swiftly knock down the flames and get the fire under control. The fire led to temporary road closures around the mall and crews were able to contain the damage to the area where the fire started. No injuries were reported, and it is unclear what caused the fire, which remains under investigation. Pginer noted that there were no fire sprinklers in the parking garage.

    After wearing a protective sleeve over his right elbow at practice Wednesday, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was back to normal Thursday. The right-handed Jackson was a full participant in practice and threw without any apparent limitations during the half-hour period of practice open to reporters. He was listed as limited on Wednesday’s injury report after not throwing to receivers at practice, but he said he expected to play Sunday against the New England Patriots. Jackson appeared to suffer the minor elbow injury after banging his arm against fullback Patrick Ricard late in the third quarter of the second half of the Ravens’ loss to the Miami Dolphins. “He had a really good day, really dialed in on what we’re working on,” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said after practice Thursday. “Just another positive day for him, another step forward. He’s really on a pretty good trajectory right now, so we just have to stay with it.” The Ravens got good injury news elsewhere Thursday. Every player on the team’s 53-man roster was available to practice, including wide receiver Devin Duvernay (concussion)...
    Thursday Night Football will feature another division rivalry, as the Cleveland Browns take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Week 3 officially starts on Thursday night. The premiere featured a rivalry matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers. One week later, there will be an AFC North matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns. Both teams were victorious to start off the season, but their Week 2 games were ones to forget. Pittsbugh’s offense struggled in Week 2, as they fell 17-14 to the New England Patriots. That’s right, they could not outscore the Patriots. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky had a game to forget, where Steelers fans were actually chanting for rookie Kenny Pickett. Barring anything unforeseen, it will be Trubisky getting the start in Week 3. Then, there’s Cleveland. The Browns found a way to lose a football game in the most ridiculous manner. The team held a 30-17 lead over the New York Jets with less than two minutes remaining in regulation. Sure enough, the Jets scored an uncontested, walk-in touchdown by receiver Corey Davis, recovered an...

    President Joe Biden said Thursday that he is "laser-focused" on extending federal aid to Puerto Rico as the island attempts to deal with the deadly destruction left by Hurricane Fiona. Biden's comments came during a briefing with Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Deanne Criswell, in which the president reaffirmed that the federal government would cover the cost of all search and rescue, debris removal, and other emergency restorative services the local government requests. MOST OF PUERTO RICO STILL WITHOUT POWER AND WATER AFTER HURRICANE FIONA "I'm here because we're laser-focused on what's happened to the people of Puerto Rico," he said Thursday.

    By The Associated Press DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Clashes between Iranian security forces and protesters angry over the death of a 22-year-old woman in police custody have killed at least nine people since the violence erupted over the weekend, according to a tally Thursday by The Associated Press. The scope of Iran’s ongoing unrest, the worst in several years, still remains unclear as protesters in more than a dozen cities — venting anger over social repression and the country’s mounting crises — continue to encounter security and paramilitary forces. To prevent protests from spreading, Iran’s biggest telecom operator largely shut down mobile internet access again Thursday, said Netblocks, a group that monitors internet access, describing the restrictions as the most severe since 2019. An anchor on Iran’s state television suggested the death toll from the mass protests could be as high as 17 on Thursday, but did not say how he reached that figure. In a country where radio and television stations already are state-controlled and journalists regularly face the threat of arrest, the paramilitary Revolutionary Guard urged...

    Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard returned to practice on Thursday, but left tackle Terron Armstead was still missing during the media viewing portion of drills. Both missed Wednesday’s practice — Howard with a groin injury and Armstead still dealing with the toe ailment that he played through in Sunday’s 42-38 win against the Baltimore Ravens. The two veterans, who have six Pro Bowls between them, are pivotal for the Dolphins (2-0)as they get set to host the Buffalo Bills (2-0) in a divisional matchup at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday. Dolphins cornerbacks coach Sam Madison, speaking before Thursday practice, expressed that he’s not worried about Howard’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Bills. “You look around the league, there’s veteran maintenance days all around the league,” Madison said of his All-Pro’s Wednesday absence. “He’s a pro. He’s been through this before, and I’m looking forward to him to be 100 percent.” Howard will be the key in Miami’s efforts to limit Bills star receiver Stefon Diggs on Sunday. Madison said he spoke with Howard about what he called “lackadaisical play...
    2 takeaways from Thursday’s 'Morning Meeting': We want to buy on market weakness
    The Nasdaq MarketSite in the Times Square neighborhood of New York, on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.Michael Nagle | Bloomberg | Getty Images We're buying 25 shares of Microsoft (MSFT) at roughly $240 each. Following Thursday's trade, Jim Cramer's Charitable Trust will own 375 shares of MSFT, increasing its weighting in the portfolio to 3.26% from 3.05% The Microsoft purchase will put a small amount of cash to work Thursday after the prior session's Federal Reserve-driven declines finally put our trusted S&P Oscillator into oversold territory at minus 5.16%. As a reminder, any time the Oscillator moves below minus 4%, it signals oversold conditions in the market, which could mean it's due for a bounce.  In addition to the oversold Oscillator, we're putting some cash to work Thursday as a counter to the poor sentiment in the market. The number of bears in the AAII Investor Sentiment Survey crossed above 60, marking the highest level since March 2009, when it was 70. That's a historic level of pessimism about the market — and when people start leaning too far in one direction,...

    (CNN)House Democrats, who have spent months trying to cobble together a package of police funding bills to help combat attacks on the campaign trail, are struggling to get the votes to pass it Thursday, according to a source familiar with the matter. Several progressive Democrats have threatened to vote against it, and the House has gone into recess as the leadership tries to sort it out Thursday morning.Separately, a senior Democratic aide told CNN that leadership is "double checking things" and also checking on attendance too.

Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, who serves as whip of the caucus, released a statement applauding...

    Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell holds a news conference following a Fed rate announcement, in New York City, July 27, 2022.Brendan McDermid | ReutersWhat I am looking at Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022 U.S. stock futures modestly higher Thursday. Treasury yields still blowing out. Not stopping here. Is the 2- year, now over 4%, stoppable if the Federal Reserve is signaling that it might go higher? Further 1.25% rest of year to more than 4.25%? That's what the 2-year yield is telling us. New tone: No choice but pain, which implies that a recession is well within their purview. Those paid in stock are feeling it. "We have got to get inflation behind us," Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said at Wednesday's post-meeting news conference. Rates must go up to have meaningful downward pressure on inflation. Dollar? Strong Japanese intervention in foreign exchange market. An inflation target from the Fed of 2%, does that mean we need the nation's unemployment rate to double? Weekly jobless claims up...
    STEELERS at BROWNS 8:20 p.m., Browns by 4 ½, 40 ½ HANK’S HONEYS: There are reasons to pick both teams. The Elf people have to be devastated after the Jets debacle, but getting back out there on a short week should actually be beneficial. More importantly, the Browns could be down Myles Garrett (neck) after already losing Jadeveon Clowney and Chase Winovich. That would ordinarily be devastating to a defense that had always relied on pressure up front. Luckily for them, the Mitch Trubisky-led Steelers have barely been puttering along. Pittsburgh fans are already sounding those “bench him” demands from his dark days in Chicago. The pressure has squarely been on the Steelers defense, which has remarkably held its own with ball hawk Minkah Fitzpatrick back to his old tricks. Trubisky, however, has been very careful with the football so far and with so many three-and-outs by the offense, the Steelers D has been on the field almost 80 minutes in two games. They can’t be happy about the short week, especially against a very physical Cleveland offense. As...

The company said the new workers will be hired after existing Target workers are given a chance to set their holiday shifts.

Walmart, meanwhile, said this week that it plans to hire 40,000 workers for the holidays, far fewer than the 150,000 it added last year. After struggling with labor shortages last year, retailers more recently have been forced to offer steep markdowns to move excess inventory. In its most recent earnings report, Target saw quarterly profit fall almost 90% as it slashed prices to attract buyers. Target also said Thursday that it will begin its Target Deal Day...

    Share this: CITY BAR URGES PASSAGE OF HOUSE’S PRESIDENTIAL REFORM ACT: Following Tuesday’s introduction of the Presidential Election Reform Act (H.R. 8873) in the U.S. House of Representatives, aimed at preventing a similar insurrection to the events of January 6, 2021, the New York City Bar Association urges the House to swiftly pass the Act’s critical reforms to the Electoral Count Act (ECA). The City Bar believes the Presidential Election Reform Act provides a strong counterpart to the Senate’s bipartisan Electoral Count Reform and Presidential Transition Improvement Act (ECRA) and that the bills should be reconciled and passed without delay. The House bill expands the number of members of each Congressional chamber needed to raise an objection to a state’s electors from one member to one-third of each chamber, an increase over the Senate bill, which requires one-fifth of the Chamber. The requirement of a substantial number of objecting members of both houses of Congress would reduce the possibility of baseless objections delaying or obstructing the count and increase the likelihood that the choice of the voters will be respected...
