    Lady Gaga’s longtime dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot Wednesday in LA by a pair of robbers who stole two of the singer’s three beloved French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav. The third pooch, Miss Asia, was not taken. As fans grapple with whether this was a random dog-napping or whether thieves targeted the dogs for their celebrity, it begs the question — where does Lady Gaga live?

    (CNN)The growing number of migrant children arriving alone at the US-Mexico border is raising alarm among officials scrambling to find enough space to shelter kids until they're relocated with parents or relatives in the United States. On Thursday, a senior Health and Human Services Department official briefed Capitol Hill staff about the capacity challenges facing the department, which is charged with the care of migrant children, according to a congressional aide. Jallyn Sualog, acting director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, shared concern over the uptick in children and limited space, noting that bed capacity is hovering around 90%, according to an aide. The issues facing the department are exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic, which has required shelters to draw down their capacity to account for Covid-19 precautions. On Thursday, there were more than 1,200 unaccompanied children in Customs and Border Protection custody across the southwest border, according to a...
    By MADISON HUNT of Capital News Service Maryland lawmakers would charge fees on fossil fuels and high-emissions vehicles to reduce pollution within the state — and send the first $350 million annually to fund schools — under a bill in the state’s General Assembly. HB33, the Climate Crisis and Education Act, cross-filed with SB76, would require the state to reduce its carbon emissions from 2006 by 60% by 2030 and reach net zero carbon emissions by 2045. Beginning July 31, 2022, all fossil fuels brought into Maryland for burning and all new high-emission vehicles sold or registered within the state would incur a fee, according to the bill. These companies wouldn’t be allowed to pass these fees on to their customers, according to a legislative analysis. Brian Smith, a lobbyist for the Washington Gas utility, said companies won’t be able to sustain those costs if they are not passed down...

    Hikers who don’t follow trail signs in Hawaii could face more than just danger to their lives -- they could also be required to pay for their own rescue.  Hawaiian lawmakers are considering a bill that could require hikers to reimburse local rescue teams if they had to be saved because they left marked trails, entered clearly-marked private property or ignored signs saying a trail is closed, according to recent reports.  SB 363 would also give those hikers additional, criminal fines for petty misdemeanor charges.

Bill Magness, the CEO of the Energy Reliability Council of Texas (CEO) testified on Thursday during a hearing in front of the Texas State Senate Business and Commerce Committee according to NBC News.

    As part of the $1.9 trillion relief package, Congress is slated to set aside $350 billion to state and local governments. While the pandemic has crippled the economy, it turns out most states are actually running budget surpluses and some states haven’t even finished using money from the CARES act, leaving taxpayers to wonder why Congress is shelling out billions to these states. Congress extended the deadline to spend $150 billion worth of aide that was given to states from the Cares Act in March after states and localities said they didn’t have enough time to spend the much needed money, according to Bloomberg. A coalition of attorney generals from 43 states, Washington D.C. and five U.S. territories sent a letter in November to Congressional leaders urging them to extend the deadline to at least Dec. 31, 2021. The group said that by extending the deadline, communities could “be more strategic...

    By JONATHAN DREW, Associated Press DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A musician who played the bells at Duke University’s iconic chapel at the end of each academic day, marking the end of class for countless students over five decades, died Thursday at age 73, the university said. J. Samuel Hammond died in Durham, according to a university news release. Hammond, who graduated from Duke in 1968, began playing the 50-bell carillon his freshman year. Hammond, who also worked for four decades as a music librarian at the university, retired as university carillonneur in 2018. The bells at the Gothic chapel are played by striking wooden keys by hand and pressing foot pedals, similar to a piano, according to a university news article. The keys and pedals control cables that cause hammers to strike the bells, which range in size from 10 pounds (4.5 kg) to more than 5 tons (4.5 metric...

    It does not seem debatable that New Yorker Darren aronofsky (b. 1969) is one of the most particular directors on the world film scene. His films are, so to speak, foreign, difficult to understand most. And three of them, cult: Pi, faith on chaos, Requiem for a Dream Y The source of life. But it seems that major accolades are resisting him: He has only been nominated for Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs once, for his work in Black Swan, although they awarded him for Pi at the Sundance Festival and The fighter he obtained the Golden Lion in the one of Venice.

    The $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package includes money for a plethora of interests you might expect, such as funding for healthcare, roughly $350 billion for states and stimulus payments. But some Democrats are also angling for taxpayer-funded relief money to bail out pension funds that have ballooned over the years while many of the companies in question continued to pay their top-ranking employees millions of dollars. The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) protects pensions of private-sector employees. PBGC says their financing comes from the insurance premiums that employers pay, along from investments, assets of pension plans that they preside as trustee over, but not from taxes. While pensions took a hit during the pandemic due to falling interest rates, corporations underfunded their pensions long before the pandemic. And now, taxpayers might pick up the cost. After a failed attempt to bail out pension plans in 2019, Democrats are itching to...

    Face time with the new Texans head coach didn’t lead to an about-face from Deshaun Watson. Watson met for the first time with David Culley last Friday but reiterated in that meeting that he wants to be traded and has no intention of playing quarterback again for the Texans, according to an ESPN report. Watson had been ignoring phone calls from the Texans brass since he felt lied to by owner Cal McNair about the input he would have during the process that led to the hiring of general manager Nick Caserio, according to a recent report by The Athletic.

But no progress was made in terms of convincing the franchise quarterback to stick with the four-year extension he signed with the Texans only a few months ago.  “No change from Watson’s end,” the report said. “He remains dug...

    A new form of coronavirus is spreading rapidly in New York City and carries a worrisome mutation that could weaken the effectiveness of vaccines, two teams of researchers have found. Miami World / NY Times The new variant, named B.1.526, first appeared in samples collected in the city in November. As of the middle of this month, it represented about one in four viral sequences that appeared in a database shared by scientists. A study on the new variant, led by a Caltech group, was published online Tuesday. The other, by researchers at Columbia University, was published Thursday morning. Neither study has been peer reviewed or published in a scientific journal. But the consistent results suggest that the spread of the variant is real, experts said. “This is not particularly happy news,” said Michel Nussenzweig, an immunologist at Rockefeller University who was not involved in the new research. “But just...
    The next Dragon Age game will no longer have multiplayer aspects, according to a new Bloomberg report. The game, made by EA-owned studio BioWare, had reportedly “been designed with a heavy multiplayer component,” but it has been turned into a single-player game “in recent months.” However, we still haven’t seen much of the game since it was first announced with a brief teaser trailer in December 2018, and we don’t know what the multiplayer component could have looked like. Even though the game has been in the works for some time — development started in 2015, reports Bloomberg — there’s still no release date for it just yet, meaning it could be a ways off, and things could change. BioWare recently showed fleeting glimpses of the game in August and in December. The change comes amid other developments at EA The change comes amid other developments that have apparently led...

    By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH and TODD RICHMOND, Associated Press MISSION, Kan. (AP) — When COVID-19 patients inundated St. Louis hospitals, respiratory therapists arriving for yet another grueling shift with a dwindling supply of ventilators would often glance at their assignments and cry, heading into the locker room to collect themselves. “They were like, ‘Man, another 12 hours of this slog of these on-the-verge-of-death patients who could go at any moment.'

The percentage of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power, meanwhile, has been slowly increasing: rising from 7.5% in 2007 to 14% in 2017, according to a report from USAFacts.

    By Lewis Krauskopf NEW YORK (Reuters) - Some of the biggest winners on U.S. stock exchanges so far this year have been their smallest members, partly fueled by the GameStop effect, but their gains could be particularly vulnerable if investors get skittish about equities. The Russell Microcap index, whose components have a median market value of about $350 million, has climbed 26% nearly two months into 2021. That gain tops the 4.5% rise for the large-cap S&P 500, whose components' median market value is about $28 billion, and the performance of benchmark small- and mid-cap stock indexes. The micro-cap gauge ceded some gains during volatility earlier this week while other indexes held up better. With relatively few shares available to be traded, micro-cap stocks favored by individual investors could be hit hard in a downturn. “Because they are retail oriented, they are probably going to be a little more vulnerable...

Although Martinez became unconscious after drinking and died about four hours before fraternity members called 911, Opgenorth said investigators didn’t feel there was enough evidence for a prosecutor to prove manslaughter beyond a reasonable doubt. On Nov. 12, 2019, police arrived at the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and found Martinez, from Bellevue, Washington, dead on the floor, the report said. The coroner found Martinez...

    By Allison Martell, Carl O'Donnell and Julie Steenhuysen (Reuters) - The number of available COVID-19 vaccine doses is steadily rising, but a shortage of physical space that meets standards for pharmaceutical manufacturing is a major bottleneck to further expansion, according to drugmakers, industry construction experts and officials involved in the U.S. vaccine program. The production of raw materials, vaccine formulation and vial filling all require "clean rooms" with features like air cleaners, sterile water and sterilizing steam designed and in some cases built by specialists. Moderna Inc on Wednesday announced plans to expand vaccine manufacturing capacity, but said it will be a year before that can add to its production. With vaccines needed for billions of people to end a pandemic that has claimed more than 2.5 million lives globally, drugmakers have even had to turn to rivals for help to churn out doses.

    London (CNN Business)London has been the unrivaled king of European finance for more than three decades. Brexit is starting to change that. Billions of dollars worth of stock and derivatives trading has already vanished from the British capital after the United Kingdom completed its exit from the European Union on Jan. 1, shifting abroad to financial hubs in Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt.
