Dislike criminal activities increased for Second year in a row in 2016, FBI reports

Monday, Nov. 13, 2017|10:11 a.m.

WASHINGTON– Hate criminal activities rose for the 2nd straight year in 2016, with boosts in attacks inspired by predisposition versus blacks, Jews, Muslims and LGBT individuals, inning accordance with FBI statistics released Monday.

There were more than 6,100 hate crimes last year, up about 5 percent over the previous year. In 2015 and 2016, that number was driven by crimes versus people because of their race or ethnicity.

More than half the 4,229 racially inspired criminal activities protested black individuals, while 20 percent were against whites, the report shows. And Jews were targeted in majority the 1,538 criminal offenses that were encouraged by religious beliefs. Criminal activities sustained by predisposition versus LGBT people rose from 203 in 2015 to 234 last year.

The yearly report is the most comprehensive accounting of hate criminal offenses in the U.S. But authorities have long alerted it is incomplete, in part due to the fact that it is based on voluntary reporting by cops companies across the country.

The numbers most likely show an uptick taped by civil rights groups in harassment and vandalism targeting Muslims, Jews, blacks and others amidst the presidential project, which included sharp rhetoric from Republican politician Donald Trump and others versus immigrants, specifically Muslims. There were 307 criminal offenses versus Muslims in 2016, up from 257 in 2015, which at the time was the greatest number given that the after-effects of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

In launching the figures, the FBI stated hate criminal activities stay the “top investigative priority” of its civil rights unit and promised to continue collecting data on the issue. Attorney General Of The United States Jeff Sessions has stated it would be a leading focus of his Justice Department.

On Monday, Sessions said the Justice Department is awaiting a complete report from a task force on actions it can require to improve training for prosecutors and investigators, enhance information collection on hate criminal offenses and partner with local officials and neighborhoods. In the meantime, Session said, the department can continue to aggressively prosecute people who violate the civil liberties of others.

“The Department of Justice is devoted to guaranteeing that individuals can live without fear of being a victim of violent crime based on who they are, exactly what they think, or how they praise,” Sessions said in a declaration.

Supporters said they can’t properly address the problem without a fuller understanding of its scope.

“There’s a hazardous disconnect between the rising problem of hate criminal activities and the absence of trustworthy information being reported,” said Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt, who called for an “all-hands-on-deck technique” to address underreporting. “Police departments that do not report trustworthy information to the FBI risk sending the message that this is not a top priority concern for them, which might threaten neighborhood rely on their capability and readiness to attend to hate violence.”

Amazon states it got 238 propositions for Second head office


Reed Saxon/ AP This Sept. 6, 2012, file image, reveals the Amazon logo design in Santa Monica, Calif.

Monday, Oct. 23, 2017|10:12 a.m.

NEW YORK– Amazon said Monday that it received 238 proposals from cities and areas in the United States, Canada and Mexico intending to be the home of the company’s 2nd headquarters.

The online retailer kicked off its hunt for a 2nd home in September, assuring to bring 50,000 brand-new jobs and spend more than $5 billion on construction. Propositions were due last week, and Amazon made clear that tax breaks and grants would be a big deciding aspect on where it chooses to land.

Las Vegas is among those contending for the facility.

Amazon Inc. did not list which cities or city areas applied, however stated the proposals came from 43 U.S. states, in addition to Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, three Mexican states and six Canadian provinces. In a tweet, the company said it was “thrilled to review each of them.”

Besides trying to find financial rewards, Amazon had specified that it was looking for to be near a city with more than a million individuals; be able to attract top technical talent; be within 45 minutes of an international airport; have direct access to mass transit; and be able to expand that headquarters to as much as 8 million square feet in the next years.

Generous tax breaks and other incentives can wear down a city’s tax base. For the winner, it might be worth it, given that an Amazon head office might draw other tech services and their well-read, highly paid workers.

In New Jersey, Republican Gov. Chris Christie has actually backed Newark’s bid, saying the state and the city are preparing nearly $7 billion in tax breaks. Detroit quote organizers have stated its proposal uses Amazon the special possibility to set up shop in both the U.S. and Canada. Missouri authorities proposed an innovation passage between Kansas City and St. Louis rather than a single place.

The seven U.S. states that Amazon stated did not apply were: Arkansas, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming.

Ahead of the deadline, some cities turned to stunts to try and stick out: Representatives from Tucson, Arizona, sent a 21-foot high cactus to Amazon’s Seattle head office; New York lit the Empire State Building orange to match Amazon’s smile logo design.

The company prepares to remain in its sprawling Seattle headquarters, and the second one will be “a full equal” to it, creator and CEO Jeff Bezos said in September. Amazon has stated that it will announce a choice sometime next year.

North Korea states Second ICBM test puts much of U.S. in range


Korean Central News Company

/ Korea News Service through AP In this July 4, 2017 file image, dispersed by the North Korean federal government shows what was said to be the launch of a Hwasong-14 global ballistic rocket in North Korea. North Korea fired a ballistic missile Friday night, July 28, which landed in the ocean off Japan, Japanese officials said.

Friday, July 28, 2017|6:17 p.m.

PYONGYANG, North Korea– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Saturday the 2nd flight test of an intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated his country can hit the United States mainland, hours after the launch left analysts concluding that a large swath of the United States, consisting of Los Angeles and Chicago, is now in variety of North Korean weapons.

The Korean Central News Agency stated that Kim expressed “great satisfaction” after the Hwasong-14 missile, which the nation very first introduced on July 4, reached a maximum height of 3,725 kilometers (2,314 miles) and traveled 998 kilometers (620 miles) from the launch point prior to landing in waters near Japan.

The company priced estimate Kim as stating that the latest launch declared the reliability of the country’s ICBM system and confirmed a capability to release the rocket at “random regions and locations at random times” with the “whole” U.S. mainland now within range.

Kim said the launch late Friday sent a “severe caution” to the United States, which has been “meaninglessly blowing its trumpet” with dangers of war and more powerful sanctions, the KCNA stated.

The North Korean flight information was similar to assessments by the United States, South Korea and Japan.

David Wright, a physicist and co-director of the global security program at the Union of Concerned Researchers, stated that if reports of the rocket’s optimum altitude and flight time are appropriate, it would have a theoretical range of a minimum of 10,400 kilometers (about 6,500 miles). That implies it could have reached Los Angeles, Denver or Chicago, depending on variables such as the size and weight of the warhead that would be carried atop such a missile in a real attack.

South Korea’s Foreign Ministry denouncing the launch as a “serious threat” to local and worldwide security. But the ministry also said South Korea will continue to aim to connect to the North and called for Pyongyang to accept Seoul’s current offer for speak to decrease bitterness along their tense border and resume short-lived reunions of relatives separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.

United States retail sales succumb to a Second month as consumers draw back

Friday, July 14, 2017|8:35 a.m.

WASHINGTON– Americans reduced their shopping in June, with less spending at dining establishments, outlet store and filling station. The spending pullback came despite a healthy job market and recommends that financial development might stay slow.

Retail sales fell 0.2 percent after declining 0.1 percent in May, the Commerce Department stated Friday. Spending at retailers has grown 2.8 percent over the previous 12 months, a fairly modest pace given that the sales figures aren’t adjusted for inflation.

Michael Dolega, a senior economic expert at TD Bank, called the report “a frustration as far as the resilience of the consumer is concerned.”

The decrease shows in part a transformative shift by customers toward Amazon and other online sellers. Sales at department stores, when the anchors of mall and the pride of local communities, have dwindled. The rise of online shopping has actually left more merchants contending on cost or aiming to use much deeper discount rates– elements that can limit total sales figures.

Even previous sources of strength in retail, like restaurants and car dealers, have actually dealt with damaging sales in recent months.

The spending figures are carefully viewed due to the fact that customers account for roughly 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. If their spending slows, it can drag down development across the wider economy.

The economy has actually expanded at a warm annual speed of approximately 2 percent given that the Great Recession ended eight years earlier. President Donald Trump has pledged to elevate that rate above 3 percent. But it’s skeptical he can do so without a shock in retail costs that would reflect greater customer self-confidence and sustained earnings gains.

Sales slipped 0.6 percent at dining establishments and bars in June. They fell 0.7 percent at department stores and 1.3 percent at service stations, likely due to the fact that of lower fuel prices.

But not all sectors suffered declines in June. Costs improved 0.4 percent at non-store sellers, a category that consists of online outlets. Building materials shops delighted in a 0.5 percent increase in sales. Auto dealerships and furnishings stores likewise reported small gains of 0.1 percent.

Despite the slight enhancement of sales by vehicle dealerships, overall automobile sales, which can include purchases by rental automobile business, fell 3 percent in June.

US retail sales fall for a Second month as customers draw back

By JOSH BOAK, AP Economics Author

WASHINGTON (AP)– Americans cut their shopping in June, with less spending at dining establishments, outlet store and filling station. The spending pullback came in spite of a healthy task market and suggests that financial growth might stay sluggish.

Retail sales fell 0.2 percent after declining 0.1 percent in Might, the Commerce Department said Friday. Costs at merchants has grown 2.8 percent over the past 12 months, a fairly modest rate considered that the sales figures aren’t adjusted for inflation.

Michael Dolega, a senior economist at TD Bank, called the report “a disappointment as far as the strength of the customer is worried.”

The decrease reflects in part a transformative shift by consumers toward Amazon and other online merchants. Sales at department stores, when the anchors of shopping center and the pride of local neighborhoods, have decreased. The rise of online shopping has actually left more retailers completing on rate or aiming to use much deeper discount rates– aspects that can restrict total sales figures.

Even former sources of strength in retail, like restaurants and automobile dealerships, have faced compromising sales in current months.

The costs figures are closely watched since customers represent approximately 70 percent of U.S. economic activity. If their spending slows, it can drag down development throughout the more comprehensive economy.

The economy has actually expanded at a lukewarm annual rate of roughly 2 percent given that the Great Economic crisis ended 8 years earlier. President Donald Trump has promised to raise that rate above 3 percent. But it’s uncertain he can do so without a jolt in retail spending that would reflect higher customer self-confidence and continual income gains.

Sales slipped 0.6 percent at dining establishments and bars in June. They fell 0.7 percent at department stores and 1.3 percent at service stations, likely because of lower fuel prices.

But not all sectors suffered declines in June. Costs improved 0.4 percent at non-store merchants, a category that consists of online outlets. Building materials shops took pleasure in a 0.5 percent boost in sales. Auto dealers and furnishings stores also reported minor gains of 0.1 percent.

Regardless of the minor enhancement of sales by automobile dealerships, general motor vehicle sales, which can include purchases by rental cars and truck companies, fell 3 percent in June.

Nevada ranks Second worst for working fathers


Nevada ranked the second worst in the country for working fathers, according to a research study by WalletHub.

The research study compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia on numerous factors including average length of the work day, child care costs, male life expectancy and unemployment rates.

It found that Nevada ranked the worst for greatest child-care expenses and the highest unemployment rate for papas with young kids. It was 48th for least expensive median family income and greatest male uninsured rate.

Nevada’s rankings were bad throughout the board, even in categories in which WalletHub took cost of living into account.

“Cost of living in Nevada is among the most inexpensive in the country,” stated Jill Gonzalez, an expert with WalletHub. “Nevada still hasn’t rebounded as a state from the fantastic economic downturn as much as some other states have.”

Kevin Ray, a working dad in Las Vegas, stated he was shocked when he found out about the outcomes of the study.

“Well, first off, Happy Daddy’s Day to all the daddies!” Ray joked. “I have actually been working given that I have actually been here, but you have actually got to take exactly what you can get. When it’s bad, you have actually got to take exactly what you can get.”

The most recent numbers released by the state indicate Nevada has a 4.7 percent joblessness rate. Gonzalez said that number spikes to 6.5 percent for guys with children under 18 years old, which is the worst in the nation.

WalletHub likewise blamed the quality of day care services and local school districts for the poor ranking.

“How much of that (household) income is going right to childcare? In Nevada that’s over 12 percent of the family’s income,” Gonzalez stated. “Sadly the day care quality is not in the upper tier here … so it’s the sense that you’re paying top dollar for some average daycare.”

“When my kids were children I needed to pay a lot, however that was back in Chicago,” Ray stated. “It’s most likely double here. I can believe that.”

Mississippi was listed as the worst state for working daddies and Connecticut was the best.

U.S. judge temporarily obstructs Second Arkansas execution

Published Monday, April 24, 2017|6:38 p.m.

Updated Monday, April 24, 2017|6:52 p.m.

VARNER, Ark.– A federal judge momentarily blocked Arkansas from executing a second inmate Monday night after lawyers questioned whether the first execution had gone appropriately.

Jack Jones got a deadly injection earlier Monday night that lasted 14 minutes. The state was set to execute Marcel Williams about an hour later on after the United States Supreme Court turned down Williams’ last appeals, but a federal judge temporarily halted the procedures due to an emergency filing from Williams’ lawyers.

U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker stopped Williams’ execution till she issues another order. His death warrant ends at midnight.

In the emergency filing, Williams’ lawyers composed that authorities invested 45 minutes trying to position an IV line in Jones’ neck prior to putting it in other places. It argued that Williams, who weighs 400 pounds, could deal with a “torturous” death due to the fact that of his weight.

Intravenous lines are put before witnesses are allowed access to the death chamber.

Arkansas’ chief law officer states the attorneys’ account of the Jones execution was “unreliable.”

An Associated Press reporter who witnessed the execution stated Jones moved his lips briefly after the midazolam was administered, and authorities put a tongue depressor in his mouth periodically for the very first few minutes. His chest stopped moving 2 minutes after they looked for awareness, and he was pronounced dead at 7:20 p.m.

Jones, who ‘d argued that his health conditions could cause an uncomfortable death, gave a prolonged last declaration. His last words were: “I’m sorry.”

“I hope with time you can discover who I really am and I am not a beast,” he said in the roughly 2-minute declaration.

Williams was scheduled to be executed at 8:15 p.m. Monday after the United States Supreme Court declined his last appeals, but Baker’s order positioned that on hold.

Jones was sent out to death row for the 1995 rape and killing of Mary Phillips. He was likewise convicted of trying to kill Phillips’ 11-year-old daughter and was convicted in another rape and killing in Florida.

Jones said earlier this month that he was all set for execution. He used a wheelchair and he ‘d had a leg amputated in prison since of diabetes.

The state performed its first execution last week after an almost 12-year hiatus. Initially, Gov. Asa Hutchinson arranged four double executions over an 11-day period in April. The eight executions would have been the most by a state in such a compressed period because the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976. The state said the executions had to be carried out prior to its supply of midazolam, one deadly injection drug, expires on April 30.

The first three executions were canceled since of court decisions, then prisoner Ledell Lee was performed recently.

Williams’ “morbid obesity makes it most likely that either the IV line can not be positioned or that it will be positioned in error, hence triggering significant damage (like a collapsed lung),” his lawyers composed in a court filing asking justices to block the execution.

Both men were served last meals on Monday afternoon, Arkansas Department of Correction spokesman Solomon Graves said. Jones had fried chicken, potato logs with tartar sauce, beef jerky bites, 3 sweet bars, a chocolate milkshake and fruit punch. Williams had fried chicken, banana pudding, nachos, 2 sodas and potato logs with catsup, Graves stated.

Prior to Lee’s execution Thursday, Arkansas hadn’t put a prisoner to death since 2005. In numerous of the 31 states where executions are legal, drug shortages have often required delays as producers restrict their usage in executions. Arkansas believes that secrecy it grants to providers can solve that issue, though it still has problem obtaining the drugs. Courts have likewise forced rewrites of Arkansas’ deadly injection procedures, triggering additional delays. Jones and Williams devoted their criminal offenses more than 20 years back.

In current pleadings prior to state and federal courts, the inmates said the 3 drugs Arkansas utilizes to execute detainees– midazolam, vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride– might be inefficient because of their bad health.

Jones, 52, lost a leg to diabetes and was on insulin. Williams, 46, weighs 400 pounds, is diabetic and has issues that the execution team may not have the ability to find a suitable vein to support an intravenous line.

The bad health of both males, their legal representatives declared, might make it tough for them to react during a consciousness check following a megadose of midazolam. The state shouldn’t run the risk of giving them drugs to stop their lungs and hearts if they aren’t unconscious, they have actually told courts.

The last state to put more than one prisoner to death on the same day was Texas, which performed 2 killers in August 2000. Oklahoma planned a double execution in 2014 however scrapped prepare for the second one after the execution of Clayton Lockett went awry.

Arkansas carried out 4 males in an eight-day period in 1960. The only quicker pace included quadruple executions in 1926 and 1930.

Williams was sent out to death row for the 1994 rape and killing of 22-year-old Stacy Errickson, whom he kidnapped from a filling station in central Arkansas.

Authorities stated Williams abducted and raped 2 other women in the days prior to he was detained in Errickson’s death. Williams admitted duty to the state Parole Board last month.

“I wish I could take it back, however I cannot,” Williams told the board.

Jones was offered the death penalty for the 1995 rape and killing of Mary Phillips. He strangled her with the cable to a coffee pot.

In a letter earlier this month, Jones said he was prepared to be eliminated by the state. The letter, which his attorney checked out aloud at his clemency hearing, went on to state: “I will not ask to be forgiven, for I haven’t the right.”

Consisting of Jones, 8 individuals have been executed in the United States this year, 4 in Texas, 2 in Arkansas and one each in Missouri and Virginia. Last year, 20 individuals were carried out, below 98 in 1999 and the lowest number since 14 in 1991, inning accordance with the Death Penalty Information Center.

Woods canceled planned appearances in the Frys.com Open at Silverado in California and the Bridgestone America’s Golf Cup in Mexico City next month and his own Hero World Difficulty in the Bahamas in early December.

“I wish to send my regrets to Frys and all those connected with the America’s Golf Cup … I will be attending my foundation-hosted Hero World Difficulty however won’t have the ability to play,” Woods said.

After experiencing remaining pain in his back and hip, Woods chose to have surgical treatment quickly in hopes of returning to the PGA Trip early in 2016, or as quickly as possible. He is scheduled to start rehabbing within a week.

“I value the fans’ issue and support,” he said. “This is regrettable, however these things happen. I have actually been hurt before and played again. It won’t be any various this time.”

In his last competition, Woods had a season-best 10th-place tie late last month in the Wyndham Champion in North Carolina. He played just 11 events this season, missing out on four cuts and withdrawing once, and has dropped to 283rd worldwide ranking.
