    New York Football Giants radio announcer Bob Papa shared the chilling story about how he and some of his radio colleagues were stuck in the Mall of America during an active shooter situation. The Giants were in Minnesota to play the Vikings on Saturday, Christmas Eve. When the team arrived the day before, many organization members decided to take a trip to the Mall of America, but their journey to the mall was cut short after an active shooter situation occurred. Papa explained the scary situation he encountered when he was a guest on WFAN’s Boomer and Gio show Friday morning with guest hosts Jerry Recco and Sal Licata. “It was pretty crazy,” Papa started. “Typical mall restaurant. People are waiting outside for a table to open up, and all of a sudden, Howard Cross and I, and John Schmeelk, we notice, ‘wow, the restaurant’s really crowded,’ like there’s all these people standing. We were more towards the back of the restaurant, and the waitress came over, and she’s like, ‘yeah, there’s a shooting, the mall is in a complete lockdown,...
    Although it may be easy to get distracted by beautiful foliage while driving in the fall, New York officials are warning motorists to keep an eye on the road for moose and deer as the weather gets colder.  Deer and moose are more likely to enter roadways in the months of October, November, and December, as it is breeding season for the animals which can cause them to be more active and visible, according to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation.  According to the University at Albany's Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research, 41 percent of crashes with the animals in 2021 happened during these three months.  "New York's roadways are as beautiful as ever during the fall months, but it's also when deer and moose are more active so motorists must drive with extra caution to help avoid a collision," said Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder.  Both moose and deer are most active at dawn and dusk when visibility is lower and there may be heavy traffic, so officials recommend extra caution during these times. ...
    A Fairfield County man was found to have an active court-issued warrant during a traffic stop last week, police reported. An officer saw a vehicle traveling west on Post Road in Darien without a front license plate at about 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25, the Darien Police Department said. Police said the driver, identified as 41-year-old Gerardo Prisco-Garcia, of Norwalk, was found to have a warrant related to an incident out of Norwalk. He was processed for a charge of second-degree failure to appear and released on 10 percent of his $15,000 bond, authorities reported. Prisco-Garcia is due in court on Friday, Nov. 4, police said.

    Getty Jeff Okudah on the field against Washington in 2022. Coming into the 2022 season, most folks had no idea how cornerback Jeff Okudah would look for the Detroit Lions, but he’s provided a resounding answer thus far. Okudah is healthy and taking on the look of a player who is going to be a menace for years to come on the defensive side of the ball in Detroit. Another example of that played out in Week 7 as he made some major NFL history. Typically, cornerbacks haven’t been active in terms of tackles lately, but Okudah put that notion to rest with a huge afternoon pursuing the ball. He made history not seen in the league since 1994 by piling up the tackles and a tackle for-loss. .@jeffokudah is the only NFL cornerback since at least 1994 to produce a game with 15 total tackles and a tackle for loss❗️ Up next #MIAvsDET on CBS pic.twitter.com/WOuCvVF93R — Detroit Lions (@Lions) October 25, 2022 Read More From Heavy Get Coached Into the Best Shape of Your Life “Jeff...

    Elon Musk spoke to staffers at Silicon Valley tech giant Twitter for the first time Thursday, in a virtual meeting that saw the outspoken exec set plans for the company ahead of his $44 billion takeover.

    Bloom Productions Amid ongoing market volatility, actively managed exchange-traded funds may have a place in your portfolio. Most ETFs, which trade throughout the day like stocks, are passively managed — meaning a fund's performance generally mirrors the ups and downs of whichever index it tracks. A small but growing share, however, are employing active management, which means there's a professional at the helm picking the investments. "We're in an environment, I believe, where active management is more important than ever," said Holly Framsted, Capital Group director of ETFs, who spoke at CNBC's Financial Advisor Summit. More from FA Playbook:Here's a look at other stories impacting the financial advisor business.

    CANCER patients should be prescribed fitness classes and workouts to boost their survival, doctors say. Patients should try to do both muscle strengthening work and cardio exercises such as swimming - and even simple chores like gardening or carrying heavy shopping could improve health. 1Even simple physical chores like gardening could keep people fit to fight cancer, scientists sayCredit: Alamy Regular exercise toughens people up, stops them feeling as tired and slashes hospital stays after surgery.

    The police department in Uvalde, Texas - who have been continuously under fire in the wake of the gun massacre that killed 21 at Robb Elementary School - did not follow their own guidelines in their handling of the shooting.   The standard operating procedure - which had been gone over just two months earlier in training for a situation like this - says that Uvalde officers needed to prioritize the students and teachers.  'A first responder unwilling to place the lives of the innocent above their own safety should consider another career field,' the Uvalde PD guidelines say, as obtained by the New York Times. Since 2020, schools in the Texas town of about 16,000 have held at least two 'active-shooter training days.' The most recent occurred just two months ago, but mass-murder Salvador Ramos, 18, was still able to kill 19 children and two teachers Tuesday after police officers at the scene refused to engage him for 90 minutes. Those training sessions include classroom instruction as well as role-playing in the hallways of the school.  Uvalde, Texas, Police Chief...
    Uvalde Police S.W.A.T Team The Uvalde Police Department hosted an active shooter training course just nine weeks and a day before its officers stood by for an hour as 21 people were murdered during a mass shooting. On Tuesday May 24, a lone gunman entered Robb Elementary School in the city and opened fire. Nineteen children and two teachers died. State law enforcement officials have admitted responding officers made mistakes that potentially cost lives. In the end, a Customs and Border Protection tactical unit killed the suspect. That was reportedly without the help of local cops, who they bypassed en route to ending the tragedy. By all appearances, prior to the attack on the school, Uvalde police were ready for such a scenario. Stephen Gutowski, a firearms reporter for The Reload, shared a digital pamphlet on Twitter Friday evening from the Uvalde Police Department. It was titled “Active Shooter for School-Based Law Enforcement.” It appears there was an active shooter class hosted by the Uvalde Police Department on Match 21, 2022. Here is the ad for the class that was...
    A stunned reporter reacted to Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Steven McCraw‘s revelation that cops at the scene of the Uvalde thought children were “no longer at risk” as they waited an hour for reinforcements. On Friday afternoon, Texas law enforcement officials held what turned out to be another wild press conference updating reporters on the investigation into the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that claimed the lives of 19 children and two adults. McCraw faced a blizzard of questions, and among the stunning revelations was his explanation for the hour of police inaction after the shooter gained entry to the school. The spokesman repeatedly told reporters that during the time officers were waiting an hour for backup — and handcuffing parents while other cops went in and got their own kids — “the incident commander at the time was the belief, the you know, that that, in fact, was a barricaded subject, that we had time there was no kids at risk.” REPORTER: You had 15 officers and shields on scene, yet you did not breach...
    Joey Gallo and Kyle Higashioka were physically at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday after staying home on Sunday and Monday because they were feeling under the weather. Higashioka was feeling well enough to get added back to the active roster, but he was not in the starting lineup. Gallo and Josh Donaldson are still on the COVID-19 list. “Joey and Higgy are both here and doing well,” Boone said. “They went through some workouts. They’re doing really well. Josh [Donaldson] is still under the weather so we had him stay home.” Both Higashioka and Donaldson continue to test negative for COVID. Boone said, to his knowledge, nobody else in the Yankee clubhouse is feeling sick. With a wave of players hitting the COVID IL again and players needing to be called up from the minor leagues on short notice, Boone was asked if this reminded him of the hectic nature of the first two seasons that were played during the pandemic. “Twenty-twenty and 2021 felt like a scramble,” Boone said. “There’s been hours over the past few days where it’s felt...

    Dear Critter Corner: My cat Fred has been waking up at all hours of the night meowing, running around, and creating a lot of noise. It’s been difficult to get a good night’s sleep, can you help? Most cats tend to be nocturnal animals, meaning that they rest and sleep during the day, preferring to be more active at night. Although cats do need an average of 14-16 hours a day of sleep, some cats may sleep more or less than this amount depending on their age, activity level, health, breed etc. It sounds like your kitty Fred may have decided that a nocturnal schedule is the best way to go. To help your cat transition to a diurnal schedule, more active during the day and resting or sleeping at night, you may want to start with providing more exercise and playtime during the day. This could include engaging Fred with long wand toys, letting Fred chase after small felt toys of various shapes and sizes, or providing Fred with a window hammock or cat tree allowing Fred to watch...

    Brooklyn College banned armed police officers on campus, so they had to call for armed police from other campuses during an active shooter scare on February 3. The Daily Mail reports that Brooklyn College administrator Michelle Anderson disarmed the campus police several months ago after a “school official said she was ‘triggered’ by the sight of a female campus security officer wearing a firearm.” The officer was carrying a Glock 19 9mm for a duty gun at the time. The Mail points out that the decision to disarm Brooklyn College officers came even though the college is located in an area where “gun crimes have risen a staggering 111.1 percent year-on-year.” Then came February 3, 2022, when an “active shooter” scare made it necessary to call in armed police from other campuses in order to protect Brooklyn College students. On-campus security personnel were also allowed to go to their lockers to get their guns during the incident, Brooklyn College’s website includes instructions for how to respond to an active shooter on campus, particularly if the shooter is taking hostages: ...
    Brooklyn College's woke president has banned campus police from carrying guns and during a recent active shooter threat the school was forced to call for help from other CUNY schools which still allow armed patrols.    Top administrator Michelle Anderson, formerly a Yale Law school professor who specialized in rape law, yanked the Glock-19 pistols from peace officers on the Flatbush-Midwood campus in early October last year after a school official said she was 'triggered' by the sight of a female campus security officer wearing a firearm.  'It is all somewhat ironic because this woman peace officer had been personally authorized to carry her Glock on school grounds by Anderson herself several years ago,' a source told DailyMail.com.  On February 3, the school issued an 'active shooter' threat and at least 10 peace officers from five other institutions were called to respond to the shooting while on-campus security were dispatched to collect their locked up guns from lockers.  While the threat was not acted on, the new edict raises questions of how the school can ensure the safety of students on...
    By Jenny Surane | Bloomberg PayPal Holdings Inc. said it closed 4.5 million accounts and lowered its forecast for new customers after finding “bad actors” were taking advantage of its incentives and rewards programs. Shares of the company fell by the most on record. The payments giant, which is also overhauling its marketing strategy, said it no longer expects to achieve 750 million active accounts by 2025, abandoning a goal that contributed to a jump in spending last year on sales campaigns. “We regularly assess our active account base to ensure the accounts are legitimate,” Chief Financial Officer John Rainey said on a conference call with analysts Tuesday, after the company released fourth-quarter results. “This is particularly important during incentive campaigns that can be targets for bad actors attempting to reap the benefit from these offers without ever having an intent to be a legitimate customer on our platform.” The problem was disclosed along with an earnings report that fell short of Wall Street estimates, sending the shares plunging. The company said low-income customers are spending less as they struggle...
    Every seasoned gamer knows that the loveable Snorlax is one of the most difficult monsters to hunt and capture in the mobile game Pokémon GO. Two Los Angeles Police Department officers were certainly aware of that when they spotted one on their phones—and actively chose to ignore a robbery-in-progress call to track it down. Louis Lozano and Eric Mitchell, since fired from the department, caught the Snorlax, as well as an ultra-rare Togetic, a Pokémon ironically said to bring good fortune. The pair appealed the decision to fire them, arguing that video evidence of the pair shirking the call and driving away to “chase this mythical creature” was inadmissible, as it was made up of “private conversations.” On Friday, an appellate court affirmed their termination, calling Lozano and Mitchell’s behavior “egregious misconduct.” According to court records, Lozano and Mitchell were working a foot beat on the day of the April 2017 robbery, reported from a shopping mall in the Baldwin Hills neighborhood. A department captain, making his way to the “chaotic” scene at the Macy’s store in Crenshaw Mall, noticed...
    The arrival of winter, which came late Tuesday morning, Dec. 21, will be followed by several separate rounds of precipitation leading into Christmas Day, with the potential for chances for sleet and snow in areas farthest north and inland. The first chance for a wintry mix will come late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning, Dec. 22 in the areas marked in the image above. Most of the region, where the temperature will stay above the freezing mark, will see rain, which will taper off shortly after daybreak Wednesday.

    Despite being a full participant during practice last week, Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith won’t dress and is presumably a healthy scratch for Sunday afternoon’s game against the Browns in Cleveland. Baltimore is thin in the defensive backfield with former All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending pectoral muscle injury last week against the Steelers. But the Ravens opted to have Robert Jackson, who played special teams in his debut in Pittsburgh and was signed off the practice squad Saturday, take Smith’s spot on the active roster. Ravens fullback Patrick Ricard (knee/back), right tackle Patrick Mekari (hand), wide receiver Miles Boykin (finger) and tight end Nick Boyle (knee) are also inactive, while cornerbacks Anthony Averett (knee), Chris Westry (thigh) and Kevon Seymour (illness) are active and will play after logging full practices Friday. Ricard missed Wednesday and Thursday’s workouts with a back injury, but he played in Sunday’s 20-19 loss to the Steelers despite limited practice time last week. Boyle missed all of practice last week, and Ravens coaches have said his acclimation to...

    More than half of Americans who lost their jobs in the pandemic and remain unemployed are not interested in returning to work, according to a new survey suggesting that the dire national labor shortage is likely to persist. The poll published on Thursday by the US Chamber of Commerce found that 53 percent of Americans who became unemployed during the pandemic say they are not active or only somewhat active in looking for work.  Fifty-six percent say they can get by for more than six months before it becomes essential to return to full time work, with 11 percent saying it will be more than a year before it is necessary to return to work, and 15 percent saying it will never be essential.  No detail was given on whether this cohort was comprised of retirees, or how they'll manage to survive without a job.   The poll is a troubling signal amid a worker shortage that is exacerbating supply chain issues and spurring inflation, with businesses across the country struggling to fill millions of open positions. As of September, the number...
    Former President Barack Obama blasted leaders playing politics with climate change during a speech on Monday as he condemned his successor Donald Trump for pulling out of the Paris agreement.  Obama, speaking at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, called out Russia and China for their lack of action at the same time as he criticized Republican politicians at home.  He issued a call to arms while expressing his anger at the way partisan politics had got in the way of tackling climate change.  He said he and President Joe Biden had been 'constrained in large part by the fact that one of our two major parties has decided not only to sit on the sidelines but express active hostility toward climate science and make climate change a partisan issue. 'For those listening back home in the U.S., let me say this: It doesn't matter if you're a Republican or a Democrat if your Florida house is flooded by rising seas, or your crops fail in the Dakotas or your California house is burning down.'

    A delivery driver was shot in the stomach during an attempted robbery in Fairfield County. The incident took place around 1 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 14, at Miller Nissan in the Town of Fairfield. Officers responded to the Cumberland Farms on Kings Highway after receiving a call that a delivery man had stumbled into the store after being shot at the dealership located at 930 Kings Highway East, according to Lt. Eddie Weihe, of the Fairfield Police Department. The victim was transported to an area hospital and has undergone surgery, Weihe said. The latest report was that he is expected to recover, said police. The suspect was described as a male wearing a hooded sweatshirt who fled from the scene towards Castle Avenue. Fairfield and Westport K9s conducted tracks that led to a nearby residence, but they were unable to locate the suspect at the time.  A follow-up investigation led investigators back to that residence and Fairfield detectives took a suspect into custody for questioning at approximately 6:20 a.m., Weihe said.  "At this time, there is no reason to believe additional...
    PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — A 911 call about an active shooter sent police and first responders to Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida’s Panhandle on Tuesday morning, but it turned out the caller did not realize officials were conducting an active shooter training exercise, the base said in a Facebook post. The 911 call resulted in a response from the 325th Security Forces Squadron and multiple law enforcement officers in the area, the post said. Officials cleared the building to make sure there was no threat. An all clear was then issued, base officials said. Normal operations have resumed at the base, which is just east of Panama City.

    Could the Knicks elevate Jericho Sims to the active roster during 2021-22 season? Alexander Wilson September 11, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Knicks overhauled various positions this off-season but retained multiple players that featured during the 2020-21 campaign. The front office extended two centers: Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson over the next few seasons. Gibson, who is 36-years-old and played in 45 games last year for the Knicks, averaged 5.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, and shot 63% from the field. Ultimately, he is well beyond his prime and offers more mentorship than actual production on the court. During the postseason, Gibson‘s presence was essential, as he provided energy and defense off the bench. However, Gibson doesn’t offer much in the scoring department and will likely serve as a third-string option on the roster this upcoming season. However, one young rookie could take a spot. The Knicks might want to consider an alternative direction after a strong Summer League performance by Texas product, Jericho...

    Conan OBriens best guests over the years How These 36 Athletes Spent Their First Big Paycheck Hurting for quarterback depth, South Carolina coach Shane Beamer looked to his own coaching staff to add to the team’s depth chart. Yes, you read that correctly. Beamer, in his first year as head coach, told reporters Tuesday that Zeb Noland, one of his offensive graduate assistants, is now suiting up during preseason practice. Noland isn’t without college football experience. He started his career at Iowa State and played in nine games, throwing for 1,255 yards and six touchdowns. He later transferred to North Dakota State, where he was the backup behind NFL first-round pick Trey Lance. And when Lance decided not to play during NDSU’s spring season in order to go pro, Noland became the Bison’s starting quarterback. In seven games, Noland threw for 721 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions. Coincidentally, Beamer was in attendance for Noland’s best college performance. That came back in 2018, when he threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-27 loss to Oklahoma. That...
    Two meteor showers will grace the night skies this week – though the moon may make observing them nearly impossible.  The Southern Delta Aquariids and the lesser Alpha Capricornids are set to peak on Wednesday,  FIREBALL BLAZES ACROSS TEXAS SKY According to the American Meteor Society (AMS), the Alpha Capricornids – named for the constellation Capricorn – are active from July 3 through Aug. 15. The shower rarely produces in excess of five shower members per hour.  "What is notable about this shower is the number of bright fireballs produced during its activity period. This shower is seen equally well on either side of the equator," the organization noted.  VideoComparatively, the Southern Delta Aquariids – suspected to be sourced from Comet 96P Machholz – are best viewed in the Southern Hemisphere and southern latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. According to NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), the shower is active from July 12 through August 23 and produces approximately 20 faint meteors per hour.  While interested parties can best view the Delta Aquariids – named for the constellation Aquarius...
    Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield appeared as a guest on Tuesday’s edition of American Agenda and trashed Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL). The congressman, who is also a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force and served in Iraq and Afghanistan, is one of two Republicans serving on the House’s select committee that is investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection. During its first hearing on Tuesday, an emotional Kinzinger choked up as he praised the responding officers who were testifying before the committee. “I have talked to a number of you and gotten to know you,” he told them. “I think it’s important to tell you right now, though, you guys may individually feel a little broken because I’ll talk about the effects you have to deal with and you talked about the impact of that day,” he added, his voice breaking with emotions. “You guys won. You guys held.” Kinzinger has been a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump, especially regarding his role in fueling the anger that drove the mob, which believed his lie that the 2020 election had...
    New York Giants: Can Dante Pettis find his way onto the active roster? Alexander Wilson July 27, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The back end of the wide receiver corps for the New York Giants is filled with talented players, but the reality is, there are only so many spots on the 53 man active roster. Beyond the regular starters, including Kenny Golladay, a Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard, and Darius Slayton, there may only be one or two spots left for grabs. One veteran who is eyeing a roster spot is former San Francisco 49ers receiver Dante Pettis, who was picked up by the Giants and spent two games trying to elevate their passing game. With the often sputtering and Daniel Jones struggling to find open targets, Pettis offered athleticism and speed at a position that lacked both during the second half of the season. With Slayton bogged down by injury and Golden Tate unable to create separation, Pettis recorded 76 yards over four receptions,...
    An Indiana math teacher has been arrested for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old girl during active shooter drills taking place at their middle school.   Ian Gray, 38, was taken into custody on Thursday and is now facing charges of child molestation, child seduction and sexual misconduct with a minor.  Gray was teaching at Fall Creek Intermediate School at the time he allegedly 'inappropriately touched' the sixth-grade girl multiple times over the course of the 2017-2018 school year.  According to court documents, which have been seen by FOX 59, Gray initially molested the girl by touching her thigh, but 'later went on to touch her breasts and genitals'. The abuse is alleged to have occurred during the shooter drills, during which time Gray would 'cover the door window of a small group room' where they were positioned.  The abuse allegedly started to become more frequent and began occurring on a weekly basis before the girl's mother noticed 'a drastic shift' in her behavior.    Ian Gray, 38, was arrested Thursday after being accused of molesting a sixth-grade student at at Fall Creek Intermediate...

    An airman earned an award for heroism after he led 28 people to safety during an active shooter incident in Glendale, Arizona. Tech Sgt. Michael Walker, a 309th Fighter Squadron aviation resource manager at Luke Air Force Base, earned the 2021 Air Force Sergeants Association William H.

    An active-duty U.S. Marine Corps officer was indicted Wednesday for his alleged actions during the January 6 Capitol riot. Christopher Warnagiris is accused of violently entering the Capitol building and pushing a police officer in order to hold open a door for other rioters.  Warnagiris, a 40-year-old Marine major who was stationed at the Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia, was arrested last month. He is the first known active-duty service member charged in the riot investigation and joins a list of at least 44 other Capitol riot defendants who have served in the U.S. military. He faces a nine-count indictment on charges that include civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, physical violence on Capitol grounds and assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers. In the five months since the Capitol attack, as dozens of former service members have been charged for their alleged participation in the riot, the Pentagon has condemned extremism in its ranks and said it is committed to rooting out the problem. Prosecutors said that during the siege on January 6, Warnagiris was the first among...
    DENVER (CBS4) – It’s not a headline you want to see anywhere a wildfire can start, let alone in one of the most drought stricken parts of Colorado. But a recent Facebook post from the San Juan National Forest said workers found eight abandoned campfires during the month of May that were not properly extinguished. The U.S. Forest Service in southwest Colorado made a plea over social media during the Memorial Day Weekend in an effort to help prevent human-caused wildfires. They reminded people to make sure campfires are completely out. They say the only way to ensure a fire is out is to douse and stir it until it is cold to the touch. An abandoned campfire in the San Juan National Forest. (credit: USDA Forest Service) Extreme to exceptional drought conditions continue in western Colorado, including across a large part of the San Juan Mountains. The region is gearing up for the potential to see a very active summer of wildfires. Lightning is the number one cause of wildfires in Colorado and a few have already started this...
