    A well-known tech reviewer, who was one many people struggling in a heatwave that gripped the UK last week, claims three of his Samsung phones exploded due to the intense heat. Arun Maini shared images on Twitter with the phones split in half, saying the batteries blew up inside and none of the other smartphone brands in his large collection were phased. Mainin, however, does not clarify the type of Samsung that fell victim to the blistering temperatures. The YouTube star is not the only one with a damaged Samsung, as several people in the UK mentioned they experienced the same issue, with one user saying it happened to his Samsung that has been sitting in the cupboard untouched for awhile.  The recent events echo that of the 2016 Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that were found to spontaneously exploded and have been found fault of starting at least 112 fires.

    On Monday’s “CNN Newsroom,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) stated that she sees a recent New York Times/Siena College poll showing that 64% of voters who plan to vote in the Democratic primary in 2024 would prefer someone other than President Joe Biden as the nominee “as dissatisfaction, as the frustration of the summer, the heat.” But Democrats will turn things around and gas prices are “going down. All that we have committed to doing, we are doing,” including “making sure that we get baby formula back where it needs to be on the shelves and in the hands of parents.” Jackson Lee stated, “Today, I think, is July 11. I’m a fighter. Joe Biden is a fighter and Kamala Harris. The elections are in November. Oil prices, gasoline costs at the pump [are] going down. All that we have committed to doing, we are doing, including money going out on the street with the bipartisan infrastructure bill, just passing a real first step in gun safety, even advocating for banning assault weapons, making sure that we get baby formula...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Monday’s hot weather and bad air quality in Sacramento prompted the elderly, pregnant and those with asthma to stay indoors. Even though we’ve had back-to-back triple-digit days now, there still was not a Spare The Air alert day. In fact, we haven’t had any Spare The Air days all year — but why?

The sweltering summer days affect the whole family. Their mom, Sacramento resident Diamond Littlejohn, said the heat and pollution forced her to take action. “I’ve actually had to have two inhalers because the air quality was so bad,” Littlejohn said. Sacramento Air District usually warns residents like Littlejohn of bad air quality with their Spare The Air alert system. “The Sacramento Air District wants to empower residents to take actions to protect their health,” said Sacramento Air District spokesperson Emily Allshouse.

    Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy pivoted from a conversation on the Robb Elementary School massacre to talk about how many people in Texas carry guns because the state has been “overwhelmed” by illegal immigration. Campos-Duffy joined Fox & Friends on Wednesday after she just returned from a trip to Uvalde, Texas, where 20 children and 2 adults were killed by a school shooter. She began by saying “My heart was so heavy” for the families victimized by the massacre, saying “I couldn’t help putting myself in the shoes of those parents to go ‘what would it be like to wake up this morning knowing what had just happened yesterday?’ It’s just unimaginable.” From there, Campos-Duffy spoke about what she was doing in her recent Uvalde visit, and that’s when she turned the focus toward immigration and the prevalence of guns in Texas. This community was already overwhelmed with what was happening because of the open border policies that were impacting the town. The mayor had told me that, you know, everyone is packing heat. They are carrying guns. If children play...
    For weeks, Kyle Lowry has spoken of the build up to when the stakes go up. Amid the Miami Heat’s few shaky moments, the veteran point guard stressed that what matters is getting to your best game for the playoffs. Those playoffs are now 10 games away. And, no, the Heat did not look anything close to their best selves in Monday’s 113-106 road loss to a Philadelphia 76ers team that gave Joel Embiid and James Harden the night off. “We’re still not there,” Lowry said, as attention shifted to the Golden State Warriors’ Wednesday night visit to FTX Arena at the start of a four-game Heat homestand. “We should be. We’re closer. And we should in one more step be there. “But it’s just about communication and understanding of what’s going on and coverages and situations that we’re going to be in, and we’re all on the same page. You know, we haven’t had the opportunity to have our finishing lineup as much as we would like. And we don’t even know what our finishing lineups will be.” So...
    Observations and other notes of interest from Monday night’s 113-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers: — If you didn’t know better, or perhaps if you did, it appears few beyond the Heat are prioritizing the No. 1 seed in the East. — And based on Monday night, perhaps even not the Heat. — Shortly after it was announced that James Harden would join Joel Embiid as a 76ers spectator for Monday night’s game, Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers spoke of the true priority of the first round. — Getting a top-four seed in the East. — Not necessarily at No. 1 . . . or No. 2 . . . or No. 3. — Just, as Rivers said, at least securing homecourt advantage in the first round. — Potentially only in the first round. — That’s where the 2021-22 East stands. — With so many traps that there does not appear to be a comfortable seed. — Or any spot less safe than another. — So the Heat seemingly will be left to finish the job with No. 1. — Then...
    To define these final four weeks of the Miami Heat’s regular season as a chase for the No. 1 seed would run counter to much preached by Erik Spoelstra. And, for that matter, the approach of his floor general. Yes, the Heat headed into Tuesday night’s game against the Detroit Pistons at FTX Arena leading the conference race. And, yes, that would mean homecourt advantage throughout the East playoffs. But Spoelstra also has to balance the realities of an older rotation, the need to sort through an everchanging mix of available players, and, potentially — not that the team would dare admit publicly as much — playoff matchups. “It’s more about trying to get to a better level than where we are right now,” Spoelstra said, with the Heat 4-3 in their previous seven going into the matchup with the Pistons. “And I think it’s always good to learn how to win games, even in this last stretch. So wherever that puts you, you’ll be where you are at the end of the year. “But I think if you build...
    Maskless students in California were allegedly barricaded inside their school's gym with lunch tables propped against the door with temperatures turned down as they protested Gov. Gavin Newsom's mask mandate.  A photo from one of the students at the Oakdale Joint Unified School District captioned, 'Locking us in,' shows the tables blocking the doors from the inside on Thursday, and school staffers could be seen standing by on the outside. The students said the staff members turned down the thermostat to 'freeze them out,' according to Reopen California Schools, but Oakland Police said the temperatures were not cold when a school officer responded to the situation, which is not under further investigation.    A follow up video shows the maskless students marching in the streets on their way to the district headquarters 'in protest' as people in the streets cheered, 'Let's go, Oakdale.'   The students in the district said they have chosen to go out without masks to follow Newsom's example after he showed himself masklesss at the NFC Championship Game last week.   Students took a photo of the barricade at the...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia police are investigating after a Catholic school was broken into, which caused extensive damage.  “The kids of the community need this school so at every opportunity when something knocks you down you just open the doors again and let them back in,” Ed Coleman, the principal at Visitation BVM School, said.  READ MORE: 6 Pedestrians Hit By Driver Outside While Leaving Chester Church, Police SayThe doors of BVM in Kensington have been closed since early last week. But it’s not because of a COVID outbreak, or Thanksgiving break.  The school has been closed because someone broke into the school on Lehigh Avenue and stole pipes. It caused the school to flood and knocked out the heat. The parish attached to the school has also been affected. “The last 3 days were the hardest days I’ve had and nobody was even here,” Coleman said. After the pipes were ripped from the wall, the basement was under as much as 4-feet of water. Now, all pumps, valves, and motors have to be replaced. School officials say the thieves...
    Hi Everyone!   Another day in this run of heat is here. But today we can say the bulk of this 7th heatwave of the season is now in our rearview mirror. We’re over the hump. 3 of the 5 days of this run are done. Don’t get me wrong today and tomorrow will feature heat index values in the triple digits, 100° to 105°.  But then the weekend and some help in getting rid of this boiler room feel. We have been discussing a frontal boundary moving near and stalling. That is still the case. But some clouds, that umbrella effect if you will, (and even a shower or t-storm) will cool us down even if just for a couple of hours in and around that rain. Small victories do add up.   I do not see either weekend day being a washout. But two days in a row the computer modeling paints a grayer and maybe wetter Saturday than Sunday.  You know what they say, “Measure three times then cut once.”  If tomorrow’s computer runs agree with today...
    BOOK OF THE WEEK HOUSE OF JAIPUR     by John Zubrzycki (C Hurst £25, 288 pp) When it comes to early 20th-century India, the statistics of wealth and pageantry always astonish. After reading this saga of the upheavals that have rocked the House of Jaipur over the past 100 years, my head is full of 90-strong processions of jewelled elephants, streets lined with 300 emerald-bedecked nobles, palaces with 500 servants, and maharajas arriving at polo grounds bringing 60 ponies, each with its own uniformed groom. At Mayo College, the elite Indian boarding school attended by Jai Singh, the handsome young Maharaja of Jaipur in the 1930s, one fledgling maharaja arrived for his first term with 200 servants for whom a special village had to be built. John Zubrzycki has penned a new book exploring the House of Jaipur over the past 100 years. Pictured: Ayesha, Maharani of Jaipur Jai himself came with an army of servants. He’d been married off to wife number one aged 11 and was allowed a conjugal visit once a fortnight in his final year. In...
    A heatwave that struck the Pacific Northwest at the end of June caused a spike in heat-related emergency room visits, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). From June 25 to 30, states including Oregon and Washington suffered an excessive heatwave with temperatures reaching up to 116F.  The heat was severe that roads in the state even began to buckle under the intense temperature. For the month of June, there were 3,060 heat related hospital visits in the region in 2021, compared to only 420 in the same month in 2019. During the heatwave, emergency room visits with heat related illnesses spiked to 69 times their normal amount, and visits across the entire month were seven times a typical June in the region. Heat related hospitalizations spiked 69 fold during a record heatwave that hit the Pacific Northwest last month The heat wave at the end of June was responsible for around 400 deaths across Oregon, Washington and British Columbia For the report, published on Friday, CDC analyzed data from emergency...
    New York : Do not microwave metal objects or aluminum foil are the most common warnings, as these materials reflect microwaves and cause food to heat unevenly and can also damage the oven. Here are 8 mistakes that you could be making with your microwave that can ruin it, cause damage or spoil food. 1. Don’t pause in the middle Surely you have noticed that in certain parts your food is too hot (mainly on the outside and on the top) and in others it is cold. Press pause halfway through reheating or cooking, and stir or turn the food so that the microwaves heat it from all sides. 2. You don’t check the temperature of the meat A food thermometer is an indispensable kitchen tool. To avoid food poisoning, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend make sure meat is cooked to an internal temperature of 145 ° F for whole meats (then allow the meat to rest 3 minutes before cutting or eating); 160 ° F for ground meats; 165 ° F for all...
    Lewis Hamilton is not someone to mince his words. Whenever he feels there’s a sense of injustice, he speaks up. And his outspoken nature was at full display this year at the Italian GP. The fact of the matter was that he was heavily penalized in Monza. While leading the race, he pitted at the time pit entry was closed because of Magnussen‘s crash there. This resulted in a 10-second stop-go penalty. If that wasn’t enough, they gave him another five-second time penalty for performing a couple of illegal practice starts.

A couple of points more and FIA will ban him for a race. On the Monza incident, Hamilton disagreed and accused the authorities of ‘trying to stop him’. After further inspection, stewards canceled the penalty points. While Hamilton has softened his stance since then, he is...
    Jimmy Butler yells during Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Douglas P. DeFelice/Getty Images Jimmy Butler told the Los Angeles Lakers they were "in trouble" after helping the Miami Heat win a huge Game 3 of the NBA Finals to make the series 2-1.

    Getty Images Brad Stevens reacts during the first quarter against the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals For the third time in four tries, Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics’ season came to an end in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Miami Heat topped the Celtics 125-113 in Game 6 Sunday night, sending Boston home with plenty to think about in the wake of a disappointing finish to what was a very promising year. But in the end, when it mattered most, the Heat outplayed the Celtics. They were tougher and Boston was outmatched in crucial moments. It was an ongoing pattern throughout their best-of-7 and in the fourth quarter of Game 6, after the Celtics claimed a six-point lead, it was Heat All-Star center Bam Adebayo – Miami’s biggest edge in the series – and rookie Tyler Herro who took matters into their own hands. Herro (11) and Adebayo combined for 21 of Miami’s whopping 37 fourth-quarter points while the two took turns swapping transition buckets and creating defensive stops. Brad Stevens’ offense...
    John Cusack teases Amazons timely new Utopia series Breonna Taylor case annoucement to be made by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron Did Dwyane Wade plant seeds for Jimmy Butler’s arrival in Miami while both were with the Bulls? Did Dwyane Wade use his lone season with the Chicago Bulls to subtly help sell Jimmy Butler on the idea of one day joining the Miami Heat? While it sounds like a half-baked conspiracy theory, several media members have been connecting to the dots between Butler and Miami dating back to the Bulls’ 2016-2017 season, when Wade and Butler were both briefly teammates in Chicago. © Photo by Jeff Haynes/NBAE via Getty Images The Bulls entered the summer of 2016 coming off a disappointing season that saw the team miss the playoffs in Fred Hoiberg’s first year as head coach. When the Bulls let Joakim Noah walk in free agency and then traded Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks, its front office promised a roster that would be ‘younger and more athletic’ around Butler. Instead, the Bulls signed 30-year-old...
    Kenosha Sheriff David Beth takes part in press conferences about racial unrest in the wake of Jacob Blake shooting. Brandon Bell/Getty Images Kenosha Sheriff David Beth has been taking a front and center role in the unrest that has been spurred by the police shooting of Jacob Blake.  Beth, though, came under fire in 2018 after he went on a rant that was seen as racist and insensitive.  The generalized comments were made in reaction to the arrest of four Black men and women who were charged with a shoplifting incident that resulted in a police chase and crash.  During the press conference, he says that some people "aren't worth saving" and need to be locked away in warehouses so they can't get women pregnant.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    BOSTON (CBS) – We are in the midst of the hottest stretch 2020 has had so far. The heat wave started on Sunday afternoon when Boston officially hit 91 degrees. The city was not alone. Most in the Commonwealth saw the low-to-mid 90s and that will continue over the next few afternoons. (WBZ-TV graphic) A Heat Advisory has been placed across Massachusetts for Monday and Tuesday. Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are not included in this advisory. Heat index values (what it feels like) will range between 100 and 104 degrees. The excessive heat is also leading to an Air Quality Alert. Unhealthy levels of ground ozone will be possible in southeastern Massachusetts from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday. Limit long term outdoor exposure as this could be dangerous, especially for those with respiratory concerns. (WBZ-TV graphic) A cold front will bring some rain-cooled air on Tuesday evening but it still won’t provide full relief. You can expect 90 degrees on Wednesday afternoon.
    New Orleans Pelicans guard JJ Redick had a hot take for the ages about LeBron James joining the Miami Heat and the backlash from fans. The former Duke superstar talked about fans being pissed about LeBron going to the Heat and Kevin Durant going to the Warriors, and his thoughts on why people were angry is one hell of a take quake. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) “People were uncomfortable with powerful black men making decisions for themselves. I really believe, and that goes back to systemic racism in our society,” Redick said in a video shared Thursday by Bleacher Report.

    LeBron James. Getty/Ronald Martinez LeBron James planned to join the New York Knicks rather than the Miami Heat in 2010, however opted against the move after a "disaster" meeting with the team's owners.  James was a free agent in 2010 having ended his first spell with the Cleveland Cavaliers.  "It's clear that the Knicks were the first choice [for LeBron]," said NBA analyst Bill Simmons. "It was basically the Knicks' to lose, and they just couldn't stay out of their own way. The stories are legendary."

    Chris Bosh was the Bulls’ first contact to lead James and Wade | Takashi Aoyama / . The Chicago Bulls were after Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James during the 2010 offseason, and at the time they were sure they would at least sign Bosh, who later fell short on his word. “For me, the story and the conversation start with Chris Bosh,” said journalist Nick Friedell on the Brian Windhorst podcast. “Because you talk to people in the Bulls organization, including the former players, and they claimed that Bosh said he would go directly to the Bulls.” Chris Bosh Reportedly Gave Bulls Verbal Agreement In 2010 https://t.co/0pTBNrQWU6 – RealGM (@RealGM) June 29, 2020 Chris Bosh and the Bulls were supposed to be together, regardless of what happened to James and Wade. “And then, as that week wore on, it was all quiet between the parties,” Friedell said.

    ROCKLIN (CBS13) — The splash pads are back open at Rocklin’s Whitney and Kathy Lund parks, just in time for the heat. Families were out at the parks Friday afternoon while kids splashed around the water. Some say they’re glad to be out, but some were surprised by how many people were there. Visitors are encouraged to maintain a six-foot distance from people outside of their household and wash their hands before and after visiting the parks. Rocklin Parks and Recreation warned the equipment will not be regularly sanitized, so people should refrain from touching items with their bare hands and sanitize frequently. Families are encouraged to bring their own seating instead of relying on park benches. Construction for a new splash pad at Rocklin’s Johnson-Springview park is almost finished. It’s expected to open in July.

    INDIANA, Pa. (KDKA) – Nearly one hundred firefighters from 10 companies and two counties rolled into Specialty Tire in Indiana Monday morning. Indiana Fire Association First Assistant Chief Ron Moreau described the scene: “Lots of heavy black smoke.” The picture from Indiana Fire Association shows the issue from the outside. Visibility inside the nearly 100-year-old building was a problem, as was what was once stored there. (Photo Credit: Indiana Fire Association) “You have a facility like this, you have a lot of different chemicals, products, gases that are involved,” says Moreau. “When we got here, the transformer was burning, the breakers were blowing — lots of excitement with electric.” As the fire burned inside, firefighters on the cement roof were essentially standing on something akin to a giant baking stone.

    PHOENIX (AP) — Trying to stay safe during a global pandemic is hard enough, but people in Southwest desert cities like Phoenix and Las Vegas where temperatures can soar into the triple digits are also trying to protect themselves from the brutal heat. With many government-run spaces like libraries and community centers still closed this week to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Salvation Army and other nonprofit groups are shouldering a big load of the responsibility for ensuring people stay cool and hydrated amid an extreme heat warning in some parts of the southwestern U.S. At a dozen of their sites in metro Phoenix, Salvation Army staff and volunteers Thursday asked people to wear masks, clean their hands with the alcohol-based sanitizer gel provided and stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from others as a precaution amid the virus outbreak. ”There are still few places where our homeless can go,” Salvation Army Major David Yardley said at the group’s downtown center. “Here, they can get some water, get out of the heat.” Phoenix malls...
