    An "accidental" lockdown activation brought several police officers to a Morris County middle school to investigate, authorities said. Chatham Middle School was testing the district’s 911 alert system when it inadvertently sent a lockdown message to the Morris County 911 Communications Center and prompted an immediate police response around 1:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 23, the department said. While the department confirmed that a lockdown had not been initiated by the school, a shelter-in-place command was ordered to allow police to do a “precautionary sweep” of the building, authorities said. Once officers accounted for all the students and ensured that there was no emergency, the shelter-in-place order was lifted.
    Whenever Orioles reliever Joey Krehbiel passes by one of his teammates completing an interview, he asks — with a perfect blend of sincerity and sarcasm — whether they said his name. As reporters surrounded Jordan Lyles’ locker in Baltimore’s clubhouse Wednesday minutes after he finished off a complete game, the 31-year-old right-hander yelled out, “Joey Krehbiel!” It was just another case of him picking up a member of the Orioles’ bullpen. The lone veteran on Baltimore’s pitching staff, Lyles has served as an exemplar for its inexperienced members. Wednesday night’s nine-inning performance against the Detroit Tigers served as the latest showcase. “He’s our leader, basically,” rookie starter Kyle Bradish said. “We call him Dad. That’s the running joke, even though he’s not too much older than us, but he’s got that experience.” Lyles entered this season with just over 10 years of major league service time, twice as much as every other current member of the Orioles’ rotation combined. That status alone has earned him respect in Baltimore’s clubhouse, but the way he’s performed on the mound has impressed his...
    Tennis legend Roger Federer has heaped praise on his four children for helping him stay hungry over the last 10 years of his career, revealing he would rather have retired a decade ago than left them at home while he travelled the world. The legendary 20-time Grand Slam winner, who retired earlier this month, brought twin girls Myla and Charlene, 13, and twin boys Lenny and Leo, 8, to every tournament with his wife Mirka, 44. And he admits that having his family around was the exact shift in approach he needed to continue winning tournaments through his 30s and into his 40s. Roger Federer's four children, Lenny, Charlene, Myla and Leo, watch him at Wimbledon in 2019 Federer, who recently retired, told The Today Show that his kids kept him hungry for success  He spoke to NBC Today's Savannah Guthrie for the first time since announcing his decision '[The girls] were born in 09, just after I became, I think it was world No. 1,' he said on The Today Show on Wednesday.

    Many British people are finding Meghan Markle’s presence after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II “hard to stomach,” according to Piers Morgan. Covering the queen’s funeral on Fox News on Monday, both Morgan and Sharon Osbourne blasted Markle and her past comments suggesting there could be racism in the royal family after a comment about her baby’s skin color. “Of course, the whole racist thing was atrocious. And it is like, if you were going to talk about it, then say who said it and what they did say, but the thing is you can’t believe anything after that interview because of the 17 lies that were told,” Osbourne said. Morgan argued the royal family is “of course” not racist and said he finds it “quite hard to forgive” her past criticisms of the family, even in a time of mourning. He recalled Prince William declaring definitively in an interview later that he was not part of a “racist” family. “He was asked, sir, are you part of a racist family? And he just snapped and turned to the reporter...
    Industrial and residential lighting controls manufacturer Lutron Electronics will invest $28.3 million to expand its presence in Hanover County, according to a Thursday announcement of a plan to build a 145,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. “Lutron has been a fixture here in Hanover County, Virginia for many years. It is exciting to see them invest in a manufacturing facility in our industrial park along Lakeridge Parkway and to have quality jobs created for the citizens of Hanover County and the Greater Richmond Region,” Hanover County Supervisor Faye Prichard said in a press release from the governor’s office. Governor Glenn Youngkin approved a $250,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to help bring the expansion to Hanover County, which worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership on the project. The Virginia Jobs Investment Program will also provide Lutron with funding and services for employee training, according to the release. “Lutron Electronics is pioneering lighting technology in the 21st century, developing innovative products that save energy and set the company apart from its competitors,” Youngkin said. “We are proud that Lutron is growing its presence in...

    The fiancee of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi condemned Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's controversial invitation to the Queen's funeral. She said his presence at Her Majesty's state funeral would 'stain her memory' - a sentiment echoed by activists who say allows Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, known as MBS, is trying to 'whitewash' his human rights record. The Prince 'approved' the murder and dismemberment of Mr Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul in 2018, a declassified CIA report alleged. He vehemently denies the claims and said recently that that the journalist would not be among his top 1,000 targets to kill, 'if that was how we did things'. MBS is one of the more than 500 foreign dignitaries and heads of state invited to mourn Queen Elizabeth II during the service at Westminster Abbey on Monday. A cast of controversial statesmen were invited to the affair including Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia confirmed on Saturday that MBS was travelling to London but did not disclose the details of his visit.  Officials have not...

    SUNNYVALE — Apple has deepened its presence in Silicon Valley with a deal to buy a Sunnyvale office and research building that’s in a real estate hot spot. The tech titan paid $46.5 million to purchase an office building on Potrero Drive in Sunnyvale, according to documents filed on Sept. 14 with the Santa Clara County Recorder’s Office. Apple’s deal to buy the building runs counter to a narrative that tech companies have launched a wide-ranging exodus to bolt from Silicon Valley amid concerns about the region’s brutal cost of living. Plus, the aftermath of the coronavirus breakout has dampened the desire on the part of some tech workers to return to their offices in person. The iPhone maker bought the building through an all-cash deal, the county documents show. The one-story office building has addresses of 470 and 474 Potrero Ave. in Sunnyvale, according to public records. The building totals about 58,200 square feet. A real estate alliance of Harvest Properties and Invesco sold the building to Apple, the county public records show. Apple had already been leasing the...
    Getty Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky. In “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 12, episode 16, the show’s stars traveled to Aspen, Colorado. During the trip, the cast spent time with Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky at their home. During a September 2022 episode of her podcast, “Two Ts In A Pod,” co-hosted by RHOBH alum Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge commented on Umansky’s decision to be present during a Housewives trip. “My question is why is Mauricio there? Why is he there? I just, I can’t. He did this on ‘Ultimate Girls Trip’ too. I’m sorry, I love Kyle. I love him. But why is he there?” asked the Bravo personality. She then shared that her husband, Eddie Judge, would be unhappy going on a trip with Bravo stars. “My husband would poke his freaking nails in eyeballs than to be sitting at a Housewives house or going on a trip. Is there a legit reason why he’s there?” inquired Judge. Arroyave shared that one of the offices of...
    Katie Couric praised Queen Elizabeth II's unwavering commitment to duty as she paid tribute to Her Majesty following her death at the age of 96 on Thursday. Speaking to DailyMail.com at the Daily Front Row Awards, the celebrated new anchor stated: 'She was such a steady and constant presence during her 70-year reign.  'I think there's something so dignified about the queen in an era where so many people are thirsty and sharing their innermost thoughts, there's always been an air of mystery around her because she hasn't been so accessible.' A true inspiration: Katie Couric reflected on the Queen' Elizabeth II's iconic reign as she paid tribute to the late British monarch Rest in peace: The news anchor stated that Her Majesty represented 'something different for everyone' during her 70-year reign The 65-year-old journalist continued: 'I think because of that she's almost a Rorschach test where people see what they want they want see. She represented something different for everyone.' Katie then added: 'She was so committed to service and the notion of duty that she sacrificed a lot....
    ANTIOCH — The California Highway Patrol closed two lanes on westbound Highway 4 early Monday after several law enforcement officials rushed to the scene. Details on what occurred were not available immediately, but the CHP issued a Sig Alert for severe traffic and issued a traffic advisory and referred all queries to their Golden Gate division. The right two lanes were blocked at the Hillcrest Avenue exit near the Antioch BART station. The CHP said only that there was “police activity” at the location, and several patrol cars were in the area. Please check back for updates.

    When Prince Charles was born, in November 1948, footman John Gibson was working temporarily in Winston Churchill's household.  He told me, 'When I heard the news on the radio, I went in to tell Mr Churchill and he jumped up in the air and gave three cheers. 'He was over the moon for the Princess. He ran round the room waving his hands above his head and shouting, 'Hooray! It's marvellous news! Tell everybody to come in, John. And bring the champagne. We must toast the heir to the throne.' ' Princess Elizabeth's confinement — in the Palace's Buhl Room, specially converted into a well-equipped surgery – had been a painfully long one. Afterwards, she spent ten days in bed recuperating (as new mothers were encouraged to do) and breast-fed her son from the start. She wrote to her former music teacher: 'The baby is very sweet and we are enormously proud of him. He has an interesting pair of hands for a baby. They are rather large, but with fine long fingers quite unlike mine and certainly unlike his...
    Terminal C of Newark Airport was apparently closed on Sunday, Sept. 11 with a heavy police presence on scene.

    Broadcasting company Cumulus Media cut ties with Podcast Movement, a trade association that apologized last month for Daily Wire co-founder and podcaster Ben Shapiro making an appearance at a trade show. Cumulus released a statement this week announcing they are “disassociating” from Podcast Movement as they are “dismayed and disappointed” by the treatment of Shapiro. Shapiro’s company was sponsoring a booth at the trade show, but Podcast Movement later apologized for the conservative pundit’s very presence. “Hi folks, we owe you an apology before sessions kick off for the day,” Podcast Movement wrote in now deleted tweets last week about Shapiro. “Yesterday afternoon, Ben Shapiro briefly visited the PM22 expo area near The Daily Wire booth. Though he was not registered or expected, we take full responsibility for the harm done by his presence.” There was no specification about the alleged “harm” Shapiro was causing with greeting fans at a booth representing a company he co-founded, but Cumulus made it clear in their statement that they are done with Podcast Movement over the statement lack of a followup explanation....
    Washington (CNN)An Iraq War veteran and former Democratic Party official on Friday criticized the presence of US Marines in the backdrop of President Joe Biden's speech in Philadelphia, during which he issued stinging political criticism of Republicans."We need to make sure that our military is as removed from politics as possible and it's not right if a Democrat uses the military as a political pawn and it's not right if the Republican Party does it as well. None of our politicians or elected leaders should do that," Allison Jaslow, a former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told CNN's Brianna Keilar on "New Day."Biden on Thursday warned that former President Donald Trump and his Republican followers represent "an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic" and that their attempts to undermine democracy could devolve into violence. Biden called on his audience to vote in November, backed by traditionally apolitical symbols like the United States Marine Band and two Marines positioned where they were seen on camera throughout the speech.White House officials pushed back on criticism that...
    Q: I read your column every day, but this is the first time I’ve written to you. My wife and I live in Fremont and have ridden BART regularly for nearly 50 years. Lately, though, we don’t feel safe on BART. What will make us consider riding BART again? I would like to see the regular and reliable presence of a BART employee walking the length of the train. I would also like to see measures put in place to stop fare evaders from riding the train, such as better gate security and spot checking on the cars for payment. Barry Walter, Fremont A: “We hear our riders when they say they feel vulnerable on our system. Violent crimes like the ones that happened on Friday and Sunday are not common on BART. But we also know more must be done to boost safety and that effort is being made,” said BART spokesman Chris Filippi, in response to your comments. He reports that BART PD has more personnel in the system than at any point in BART’s history. BART PD...
    The 2022 “Podcast Movement” (PM22) convention recently took place in Dallas. Basically, it’s a big industry gathering for podcasters. Mark Cuban was there, doing a session that The Dallas Morning News said “amounted to a 45-minute infomercial” for his podcasting platform, Fireside. The popular true crime podcaster Phoebe Judge was there too. And, very briefly, so was the massively popular conservative podcaster Ben Shapiro. He didn’t speak on any panels, but The Daily Wire (the right-wing media company he helped popularize) had a booth at the event, and Shapiro showed up to mingle a bit and pose with a few people who asked for a picture with him. On the face of it, there’s nothing surprising or even interesting about that. The Daily Wire produces some very successful podcasts. They have close to 900,000 paid subscribers, and Ben Shapiro’s own show was as of last month the fifth-most popular podcast in the United States. The Daily Wire buying a booth at a big podcasting convention—and its main celebrity showing up to shake a few hands—is about as shocking as the...
    St. Francis and Serra ruled over the Central Coast Section last season. But could a single athlete, perhaps the best in California, be enough to vault another team into their exclusive class? Jurrion Dickey and Menlo-Atherton may provide an answer to this question. Dickey, who transferred from Valley Christian this summer, was uncertain to play right away. But much to the receiver’s delight, the green light flashed before last week’s season opener. CCS commissioner Dave Grissom said the five-star University of Oregon commit met the requirements to be immediately eligible without having to go through a month-plus sit-out period. “We rule based on the bylaws, and this was one was not a difficult decision,” Grissom told the Bay Area News Group this week. “This one was straight out of the book.” The CCS does not address the specifics of any athlete’s transfer within the section, including one as high-profile as Dickey. Once on the field, Dickey immediately showed why he is rated one of the best high school players in the country, leading the Bears from 20 points behind to...
    The Kansas City Chiefs have some tough decisions to make ahead of NFL cut day in order to trim their roster down to 53 players. Here’s an updated list of some of the main players they let go. The Chiefs had a busy morning, releasing several veterans many pundits thought would make the roster. However, Kansas City’s roster is one which is getting younger at a rapid pace. Brett Veach doesn’t wait around to make the right move — he’s typically one step ahead. That’s why he encouraged Andy Reid to allow several members of the draft class, and even undrafted free agents, to play alongside the starters in some preseason action. Seventh-round pick Isiah Pacheco is just one example of a player who thrived in that action. KC Chiefs roster cuts: Josh Gordon releasedKansas City released Josh Gordon on Tuesday morning. While they’re reportedly open to bringing him back and have enjoyed seeing his presence develop in the community, there just wasn’t a spot on the 53-man roster for him. A practice squad move could be in his future...
    For about two weeks, Carter Young was a regular college student. He was on campus at LSU, preparing to play for the Tigers after transferring this offseason from Vanderbilt. But in the back of his mind remained the Orioles, the team that selected Young in the 17th round of the MLB draft. And about an hour before the deadline to sign, Young put pen to paper on a deal that included a $1.325 million signing bonus — one that equates closer to a second-round selection but was possible because third-rounder Nolan McLean opted not to sign. Perhaps that bonus played a role. But outwardly, Young credited the developmental system Baltimore has in place, including hitting coordinator Cody Asche, who was working with Young and several other recent draft picks in Low-A Delmarva on Thursday. Young is part of a group finding immediate success in their first taste of professional baseball at a full-season affiliate, and he’s making the most of it. “The developmental side of the minor leagues and getting guys ready to play Major League Baseball, that’s what the...
    Ben Shapiro reacted to Podcast Movement’s apology for his presence at their recent expo in Texas. Last week, Podcast Movement held their annual conference in Dallas, bringing podcast creators from around the country together. Shapiro, founder of The Daily Wire, traveled to Texas by the request of his co-founder Jeremy Boreing. Boreing had invited Shapiro to a retirement party that happened to be taking place during the same time and as a part of the trip, they decided to drop by the Daily Wire booth at the expo. A harmless event, in Shapiro’s eyes, ended in a profuse apology from the Expo’s PR team. Hi folks, we owe you an apology before sessions kick off for the day.

    A threat made by a former student prompted an increased security presence at Lehigh University, authorities said. University police officers were notified around 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28 about the threat, which was directed at a group of current students, the school announced just before noon Monday, Aug. 29. Muhamad Diop was later identified as the former student who made the threat, authorities said. He was in New York City, but police had no idea where he was as of Monday morning.  Now, they're asking for the public's help in locating him. "There is no evidence the individual is in the Bethlehem area; however, the investigation is active and ongoing," university police said. In the meantime, the school will see an increased police and security presence on campus. "All buildings have been made accessible ONLY by card swipe at this time until further notice," police said. "Otherwise, classes are being held and campus is operating as usual at this time." University police is working with the Bethlehem Police Department, New York City Police Department, the FBI, and the U.S. Marshals. Anyone with...
    Presidential son-in-law and former presidential advisor Jared Kushner spoke out about his often troubled relationship with ex-chief strategist Steve Bannon, whom he likened to a 'suicide bomber.' Kushner, speaking on The Hugh Hewitt Show Friday, said that Bannon 'blew up' before father-in-law President Donald Trump fired the former Breitbart chief in 2017, according to Mediaite.  He said: 'Steve really defeated himself, you know. His head got so big he was just doing all these crazy things, and the ultimately just you know, like a suicide bomber, blew up'.  The former White House senior advisor, 41, referred to Bannon as a 'cancer' and a 'malignant' figure in his new book, Breaking History, which he spent much of the interview promoting. Kushner told the president in an excerpt obtained by DailyMail.com that despite their feud, he didn't oppose a presidential pardon for Bannon, who had been charged with a fraud scheme related to an effort to raise private funds to build the border wall.
    The U.S. announced on Friday it will step up its presence in the Arctic with a new ambassador amid warnings that Russia is militarizing the region with a slew of airbases and that China is trying to muscle in on its resources. A day earlier, NATO spelled out the stakes.  On a visit to the Canadian Arctic, the alliance's secretary general highlighted Vladimir Putin's moves in the region and pointed out that the shortest route for Russian Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles  aimed at North America lay directly over the North Pole. The result is growing concern that the U.S. risks losing out to rivals in the icy north, and falling behind in a region that could become a superpower battleground.  Against that backdrop, Washington said it was upgrading its diplomatic presence.   'The ambassador-at-large for the Arctic region will advance U.S. policy in the Arctic, engage with counterparts in Arctic and non-Arctic nations as well as Indigenous groups, and work closely with domestic stakeholders, including state, local, and tribal governments, businesses, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, other federal government agencies and Congress,' said...
    "If there has been a change in Podcast Movement's mission and some attendees are no longer welcome based on their ideology, they should have said something earlier," he continued. Granger described how he founded Oxford Road to serve the growing podcast industry and that his company embraces "deep tolerance" for views "across the ideological spectrum" to unite podcasters and promote free speech. "Our country is at a crossroads," Granger wrote. "The freedoms we enjoy in this country are vulnerable to new threats that, in my view, are accelerated by our culture of infighting and polarization. Media has been a primary driver of this, and a large part of my life's mission has become to help our industry become part of the solution instead of joining others in exacerbating the problem." He lamented political polarization in podcasting and advocated for "freedom and tolerance," along with "good faith debate and discussion." He also urged Podcast Movement to retract its statement on Shapiro. "Treating the very presence of a person you disagree with, however profoundly, as unacceptable feels like the...
    A podcast conference organizer profusely begged forgiveness over Daily Wire co-founder Ben Shapiro being briefly present near Daily Wire’s booth at the event. The Podcast Movement conference is being held in Dallas until Friday. Podcast Movement calls itself “the world’s largest community of podcasters.” In a Twitter thread on Thursday, Podcast Movement pleadingly apologized for Shapiro being at the expo area. “Hi folks, we owe you an apology before sessions kick off for the day.

    An off-campus co-op for students at the University of California, Berkeley named the 'Person of Color Theme House' has banned white guests from entering common areas of the house. A list of house rules revealed that occupants were told 'many POC moved here to be able to avoid white violence and presence, so respect their decision of avoidance if you bring white guests.'  While the student house aims to have an 'inclusive' environment, the rules specifically state 'white guests are not allowed in common spaces,' according to the list, which was posted on Reddit.   The accommodation, which is located close to Berkeley's campus, is a five-story, 30-room home that can house up to 56 students. But the 'rules' which were leaked on social media have caused outrage - with many people slamming the rules as 'racist' as others came forward and revealed their experience living in the co-op.   One mixed-race Reddit user, who claimed to have lived at the house, said that their 'presence as a light skinned person was not received well.' They said house members called them slurs...
    JAAP STAM says Manchester United have to get rid of Cristiano Ronaldo “for the greater good”. At the start of the summer, the Red Devils were adamant they wanted to keep their 37-year-old Portuguese superstar. 2Ronaldo has made it clear his desire to leave Old Trafford this summerCredit: Getty 2Stam feels Man Utd need to force Ronaldo out of the doorCredit: Getty But with new boss Erik ten Hag now tired of the saga and Ronaldo an unhappy, brooding presence at Carrington, Stam believes it is time to act. The Old Trafford legend said: “Everybody knows Ronaldo and what he’s been doing for United last season and in the past, so everybody is looking up to him. “But if a player’s not happy and wants to leave, then you need to make a decision for the greater good and say, ‘OK, maybe it’s better we part ways’ and look for somebody else. “So if he’s in the dressing room and he really wants to leave and he’s not himself, or he’s sitting there by himself or he’s not in a...
    A Seattle CEO once hailed for cutting his salary to raise the wages of all his employees has stepped down amid misdemeanor assault and reckless driving charges.   Dan Price, 38, announced on Wednesday that he is resigning from Gravity Payments, the credit card processing company he founded back in 2004 at the age of 19. 'My No. 1 priority is for our employees to work for the best company in the world, but my presence has become a distraction here,' he wrote in an email to employees, which he shared on Twitter. 'I also need to step aside from these duties to focus full time on fighting false accusations made against me,' Price added, noting: 'I'm not going anywhere.' The CEO has been accused of trying to force a woman to kiss him following a business dinner in January. The allegations follow similar complaints by his ex-wife who said in a TED Talk that he would waterboard her. Price pleaded not guilty to the accusations in May, and the case is now ongoing. Dan Price, 38, announced on Wednesday he...

    China and Taiwan split in 1949 after a civil war; however, China's ruling Chinese Communist Party continues to claim Taiwan as its own territory. In a statement, the Chinese government stated that while it seeks peaceful reunification with Taiwan, “we will not renounce the use of force, and we reserve the option of taking all necessary measures. This is to guard against external interference and all separatist activities.” The United States does not officially recognize Taiwan as an independent country— only 13 countries currently do — however, it does maintain a strong relationship with Taiwan, and has repeatedly vowed to defend the island against potential attacks. According to analysis conducted by the Washington-based think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies, the U.S. could lose up to 900 warplanes fighting a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, reports Bloomberg. “The results are showing that under most — though not all — scenarios, Taiwan can repel an invasion,” said Mark Cancian, a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “However, the cost will be very high to the Taiwanese...
    Washington (CNN)A new US intelligence assessment prepared after the US killed al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike earlier this month found that the terrorist group "has not reconstituted its presence in Afghanistan" since all US troops left the country last August.A summary of the intelligence assessment obtained by CNN said that the consensus view of the intelligence community is that while fewer than a dozen al Qaeda "core members" remain in Afghanistan -- and were likely there before Kabul fell to the Taliban last year -- Zawahiri was the only key figure who had tried to reestablish himself in the country after US forces departed. The US assesses that those remaining members are not involved in external attack planning and that the group as a whole "does not have a capability to launch attacks against the US or its interests abroad from Afghanistan." Despite the new assessment, difficult questions remain about whether the risk could grow over time, US officials have told CNN. Concerns also remain about whether terrorist activity originating in Afghanistan could spread outside the...
    Retired Gen. Frank McKenzie, the commander of U.S. Central Command at this time last year when the military withdrew from Afghanistan, believed troops should've been kept there "indefinitely." McKenzie initially recommended that the United States maintain a force presence of 4,500, and then when the military dropped its level to 2,500 in the final days of the Trump administration, it was his recommendation that they keep it there, he told Politico in an interview about the first anniversary of the withdrawal. EXPLOSIONS ROCK RUSSIAN AIRBASE IN CRIMEA "It was my opinion that if we went from 2,500 to zero, the government of Afghanistan would not be able to sustain itself and would collapse," he explained. McKenzie preemptively responded to the critics of his belief that they should've kept a troop presence "indefinitely," saying, "I know the criticism: The Taliban are going to come after you, and you’re going to have to beef up your forces. The commander on the ground and I didn’t believe that was necessarily the case. For one thing, at 2,500, we were down to a...

    by Max Keating   Amazon and iRobot signed an agreement Thursday under which Amazon will acquire iRobot, supporting the online retail giant’s ambitions to solidify its foothold on smart home technology, according to The Wall Street Journal. iRobot makes the popular home-cleaning product Roomba, a wireless smart-vacuum that maps spaces to clean dust and messes, according to the WSJ. The Amazon-iRobot press release notes that Amazon will acquire iRobot for $61 per share in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately $1.7 billion, including iRobot’s net debt. With Amazon’s Alexa product, Ring doorbells, other smart home products, and now Roomba, the company will have an “incredible amount of data” in a modern smart home, leading to concerns about privacy, according to the Verge. “Protecting customer data has always been incredibly important to Amazon, and we think we’ve been very good stewards of peoples’ data across all of our businesses. Customer trust is something we have worked hard to earn —and work hard to keep— every day,” a spokesperson for Amazon told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Last year Amazon launched its own home robot, retailing at $999, that “can...
    Getty Images A.J. Brown warms up prior to a game in 2021. PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles offense now has all the pieces to take flight. Philadelphia entered the offseason needing to dramatically elevate the passing game, and provide quarterback Jalen Hurts the kind of playmaker who could not only be an after-the-catch weapon, but also speed up Hurts’ process of getting rid of the football early in his progressions. A.J. Brown seems primed to fill both voids, in a big way. Early in practice on Saturday, August 6, Hurts launched a deep ball downfield on a post pattern to Brown, who went full extension over safety Kary Vincent, and without breaking stride pulled down the pass before sprinting into the end zone for a touchdown.

    Getty Julio Jones and Tyler Johnson at Buccaneers training camp. Tamp Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Tyler Johnson is entering the third year of his career; all spent with the greatest quarterback to ever play the game in Tom Brady. As if having Brady and four-time Pro Bowler Mike Evans as offensive weapons in Tampa wasn’t enough, the Buccaneers recently added All-Pro receiver Julio Jones to their arsenal. Johnson is like a kid in a candy shop. Johnson, who was 13 when Jones first entered the league as the Atlanta Falcons‘ first pick in the 2008 NFL draft, has called the experience “amazing.” “Just being around somebody like that, someone that I grew up watching destroy the game for real,” he told reporters. “It’s amazing to have him in the room to be able to learn from him, watch him play, run routes.” It’s easy for Johnson to see how Jones has performed at such a high level for most of his career. “He’s quick, explosive, strong — everything that you could build in a receiver that you would want,” Johnson...
    Getty Images Billy Donovan The Chicago Bulls roster appears to be ready for the season as the team currently has 15 players. The Bulls had a low-key summer as they re-signed All-Star Zach LaVine to a max contract of five years $212 million and added veterans Andre Drummond and Goran Dragic on inexpensive contracts. With that said the Bulls still have questions about their current roster first of which is the health of Lonzo Ball’s knee and if he’ll be ready for the start of the season. Beyond that, the Bulls also didn’t address some of the weakest parts of their roster. Chicago still doesn’t have a rim protector and lacks three-point shooting. With that in mind, it’s fair to wonder if the Bulls might look to make a move before the season.Proposed TradeAnother concern for the Bulls going into this season is that Nikola Vucevic is entering the last year of his contract with the team. So Chicago will need to make a decision on what they want to do with Vucevic. If the Bulls don’t plan...

    (CBS DETROIT) — State officials say tests on Wednesday for nine surface water samples after a chemical spill in Huron River did not show the detectable presence of hexavalent chromium.

    By Mostafa Salem, Ehsan Popalzai, Paul P. Murphy and Ivana Kottasova | CNN The Taliban have claimed they were not aware that al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was residing in the Afghan capital of Kabul where the US said he was killed in a drone strike over the weekend. “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has no information about Ayman al-Zawahiri’s arrival and stay in Kabul,” the Taliban said in a statement Thursday. “The leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has instructed the investigative and intelligence agencies to conduct a comprehensive and serious investigation into the various aspects of the incident,” the Taliban added. US President Joe Biden announced Monday that Zawahiri had been killed early Sunday by a US drone strike at a house in Kabul he had been residing in. A senior US administration official said senior Taliban figures from the Haqqani network were aware of the al Qaeda chief’s presence in the area and even took steps to conceal his presence after the strike, restricting access to the safe house and rapidly relocating members of his family,...
    A company recalled a supplement that was sold across the United States due to the presence of an undeclared ingredient.  Distributor RFR LLC recalled SANGTER Energy Supplements 3000mg with expiration date 01/2025 after Food & Drug Administration analysis found the products contained undeclared sildenafil, a substance found in FDA-approved treatments of male erectile dysfunction, according to an FDA announcement on Tuesday, Aug. 2.

    (The Center Square) - Gov. Asa Hutchinson will ask state lawmakers for $50 million to fund a school safety grant program recommended by the School Safety Commission. The governor presented the commission's initial report on Tuesday. Many of its recommendations require money and changes to the law, Hutchinson said. Potential legal changes will be examined in January, but the funding aspect will be looked at as early as next week during the legislative special session. The commission recommends an armed presence at every campus at all times and a change in the state law that would require all doors and exits remain locked during school hours. Currently the law requires doors and exits to remain unlocked due to the fire code, Hutchinson said. Other recommendations include more audits, drills and “compliance efforts” through the appointment of a school safety coordinator at each campus. “The responsibility of that coordinator would be to ensure that there is a culture of compliance, that they’re all working in the same direction to keep the children safe and to make sure...
    KINSHASA, Congo (AP) — Congo’s government has requested that the spokesman for the United Nations mission in Congo leave the country, saying he has made inappropriate statements amid demonstrations against the presence of the U.N. peacekeepers. Foreign Minister Christophe Lutundula wrote to the U.N. mission, known as MONUSCO, saying he considers that the current tensions between the U.N. and the population are due to the indelicate and inopportune statements by U.N. Congo spokesman Mathias Gillman. “The Congolese government considers that the presence of this official on the national territory is not likely to promote a climate of mutual trust and serenity so essential between the Congolese institutions and MONUSCO,” the statement said. “The Congolese government would greatly appreciate if arrangements are made for Mr. Gillman to leave the territory as soon as possible.” There was no immediate communication from the U.N. on the request. The government did not point to specific statements made by Gillman, but in July during a press conference, he mentioned that MONUSCO and the Congolese army have limited means to deal with several...
