Alleged robber at Bellagio casino dies after trading gunfire with police on Las Vegas strip
[ABC] An attempted robbery at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas ended in a gunfight between police and the suspect late Friday.

An armed man walked into the casino and approached a popular poker cage, where he demanded money, before quickly fleeing out the north entrance, Las Vegas police said in an overnight press conference.

The suspect attempted to carjack someone at the valet but was confronted immediately by four uniformed officers. A second officer returned fire, striking the suspect.

"The officer had his bulletproof vest on, which probably saved his life," Las Vegas Police Department Capt. Nichole Splinter said. He was treated and released, police said.

The suspect was also struck in the chest. The man, who was not identified, died a few hours later, police said.

They caught him when he tried to use a chip to pay at a strip club; they had changed the color of all the chips overnight.

Suspect arrested in murder of reputed mob boss
NEW YORK (AP) ‐ A 24-year-old man was arrested Saturday in the shooting death of the reputed boss of the Gambino crime family, New York City police said.

Anthony Comello was arrested in New Jersey in the death of Francesco Cali on Wednesday in front of his Staten Island home, said Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea, who stressed that the investigation is in its early stages.

The firing of SPLC's Morris Dees - Now for the rest of the story
[Big League Politics] A recently-uncovered court document from the divorce proceedings of a prominent Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) figure alleges horrific conduct on behalf of one of the most influential lawyers in America.

Maureene Dees, ex-wife of SPLC co-founder Morris Dees filed for divorce on March 8, 1979 after a decade-long marriage marred by difficulties, according to an appellant brief obtained by Big League Politics. The brief was filed by Maury Smith, Julia S. Waters and Charles M. Crook, attorneys for Maureene, in the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals:

According to court testimony, among other perverted sexual behavior, Dees attempted to molest his 18-year-old step-daughter with a sex toy. Holly Buck was Maureene Dees’ daughter from a previous marriage.

"Holly testified that, in the summer of 1977, Morris attempted to molest her in the following incident: One night Maureene and Morris were sitting drinking wine and discussing a case Morris was trying," the brief says. "[Holly] was with them. Around eleven or twelve o’clock, Maureene went to bed and Holly stayed up with Morris discussing the case. Morris kept offering Holly wine, some of which she accepted."

Holly testified that she declined, choosing to go to bed instead.

"She went to her room and then went into the bathroom," the document says. "Looking out the window, she saw Morris in the bushes beside the bathroom window looking in. She said ’Morris, is that you’, but he said nothing and ran away."

Two months later, things got worse.

-Signs, Portents, and the Weather-
California drought-free for the first time in 7 years
[Aljazeera] The state of California has been declared drought-free for the first time in more than seven years.

Generous winter rains have filled the state's reservoirs and the Sierra Nevada snowpack is now 50 percent higher than average.

This is the first time since mid-December of 2011 that the entire state has been classified as being free of drought, and the moisture deficit is not severe enough to cause social, environmental or economic hardship.

The current picture marks a major improvement from just one year ago, when nearly 70 percent of California was still classified as suffering from moderate to severe drought. And only three years before that, the Sierra snowpack had dwindled to virtually zero.

Meteorologists say extremes of weather, swinging from drought to deluge, will become increasingly common as the climate continues to change.

Although California is now drought-free, many other parts of the United States are not as lucky. Currently, the worst conditions are in New Mexico, where the drought is in its severest category: exceptional. In a drought of this magnitude, widespread crop losses and shortages of water in reservoirs and streams are expected.

They announced this past week that construction would e underway in 2024. Nine years after they got the money. They also said they would not be actual dams, rather catchmen basins. They haven’t built an actual damn in 40 years. I’ll be another refugee in Nevada next month!

#11  In college in the 80s I had a project about California drought. It’s cyclical with years of El Niño flooding and years of La Niña drought (or the reverse).

Environmentalists played on the ignorance to score points.

State politicians gave away that they didn’t buy the drought but as they never curbed the constant new construction in CA.

Tennessee's Historic Lawsuit to Stop Migrant Invasion Will Be Heard in Appeals Court Next Week
[Big League Politics] Although the tea party is far past its apex, the fights they started are still ongoing and driving the national conversation. A revolutionary Tenth Amendment lawsuit in Tennessee that has the potential to restore the rights of states to reject dangerous migrants from third-world countries is ready to be heard in the court of appeals.

"This case seeks to protect and vindicate the fundamental constitutional status of the State of Tennessee as a sovereign entity not subject to unconstitutional coercion and commandeering by the federal government," the lawsuit reads.

"This suit is not intended to inflict harm on immigrants or refugees from any nation. Rather, this is a suit that seeks to preserve the constitutional relationship between the federal government and the states as mandated by our nation’s founders," another excerpt from the lawsuit reads.

Attorney John Bursch of the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) will be representing the state of Tennessee and its General Assembly next week on behalf of state sovereignty and national security. He will be facing a 3-judge panel of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. They aim to reverse coercive federal mandates forcing states to fund the refugee resettlement program, which they believe disregards the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.

Anti-Assad protesters clash with police during demonstration in Berlin (VIDEO)
[AMN] Protesters clashed with police in Berlin on Saturday, after a demonstration against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad turned chaotic.

Police detained several protesters who broke through a police cordon that was guarding counter-demonstrators near the Russian embassy.

Around 250 people joined the march in the German capital, marking the eighth anniversary of the Syrian uprising under the pouring rain, waving banners and shouting slogans like ’Assad must go,’ and ’Out with Putin,’ among others.

Cities such as Damascus and Homs experienced major civil unrest, starting on 15 March 2011 and coming to an end by late July.

Rioters torch famous Fouquet's Restaurant on the Champs-Elysées
[CBC] French firefighters are working to extinguish a blaze in a Paris restaurant seen as a powerful symbol of France's elite that was torched amid yellow vest protest violence.

The flames pouring out of the posh eatery Fouquet's on the Champs-Elysées marked one of the most powerful images on a day of unusual unrest in the French capital.

The restaurant was vandalized Saturday morning and later set ablaze. Several luxury boutiques along the elegant avenue were also ransacked, and kiosks set on fire.

Fouquet's is popular among celebrities and powerbrokers.

Critics see the place as an offensive example of bourgeois decadence that is inaccessible to most French people, who are struggling to pay their bills.

It's also associated with former conservative president Nicolas Sarkozy, who celebrated his 2007 election victory in Fouquet's ‐ drawing criticism for his choice of such a flashy locale.

Paris climate rally draws 45,000 people: Media estimate

[AlAhram] Around 45,000 climate campaigners marched in Gay Paree Saturday to condemn what they called the French government's "inaction" on climate change, according to an estimate by several media.

The organisers of the march through the centre of the city, which coincided with "yellow vests" riots in the west, estimated that 107,000 people took part while the police put the figure at 36,000.

US Air Force says Boeing has 'severe situation' after FOD (Foreign Objects and Debris) found on refueling planes
[CNN] "We are doing more stringent inspections so we feel confident before we accept any plane from Boeing," Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told CNN.

While the discovery of trash and tools in the planes is not a result of design flaw, or a specific safety concern, Air Force officials privately told CNN they were aware that the timing of the problem is exceptionally sensitive for Boeing after the grounding of its 737 Max jet.

Roper emphasized to reporters that while the issue of the material and objects -- known as Foreign Object Debris, or FOD -- being left inside an aircraft as it comes off the production line is not a design or safety risk, it is a matter of great concern to the military.

"FOD is really about every person, everyone in the workforce, following those procedures and bringing a culture of discipline for safety," Roper said.

#1  As mentioned the other day by USN, Ret.
This would be horribly sloppy on an automobile assembly line. Seems inexcusable for airplanes.

It may not be a "specific safety concern", but it shows a lack of attention to detail, which sounds like a safety concern to me.

#2  It is deliberate contempt for the company by the workers. They are doubtlessly being abused. Union workers in the 70s used to do the same in Detroit, leave tools and trash in door cavities.
Posted by: Herb McCoy || 03/17/2019 2:03 Comments || Top||

#3  it isn’t necessarily the workers being abused — unions have been known to get greedy, too. Or so it sounded to me, listening to stories about the steelworkers at Bethleham Steel in the 1970s, before the company was driven out of business. The unions won all their demands for wages and benefits for decades, until they priced their product out of the changing marketplace.

#4  The plane was built in Everett, WA, also known for the Everett Massacre in 1916. The folks there were pretty PO'd recently when Boeing built a new plant in South Carolina. The South Carolinians wisely rejected a machinists' union organizing attempt. Pretty nice plant you got there in Everett. Too bad if anything happened to it.

Boeing figured it out and moved HQ to Chicago in 2001. Some how, just not comfy in Seattle. Wanted to be closer to DC and NY. Sounds like another Seattle company. Seattle is lucky Gary Kildall's wife didn't know want an NDA is. The rest of the world has had to suffer with DOS and Windows for far too long.

Home Front: Culture Wars
New Mexico state Senate votes to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day
[The Hill] The New Mexico state Senate voted to approve legislation to abolish Columbus Day and replace the national holiday with Indigenous Peoples Day.

The state Senate passed the legislation, also known as House Bill 100, in a 22-15 vote on Friday, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

The bill, which has already been approved by the state House, now heads to the desk of New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) for consideration.

Proponents of the measure argue that the passage of the bill, which was sponsored by Democratic state Reps. Derrick Lente and Andrea Romero, would better reflect the state’s culture.

According to 2017 U.S. Census data, more than 12 percent of the state’s population is comprised of Native Americans.

The report comes months after San Francisco’s primary legislative body voted to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day in an effort to recognize the "historic discrimination and violence" against Native Americans in the U.S.

Lawmakers in Kansas are also considering abolishing Columbus Day and replacing the holiday with Indigenous Peoples Day.

If passed, House Bill 100 would make New Mexico the fourth state in the country to enact the such legislation.
