    By Christina Maxouris | CNN The 2020 fire season has been devastating. Massive blazes have ravaged the Western US, swallowing entire neighborhoods and torching millions of acres. Colorado’s largest wildfire in state history is still burning. In California alone, firefighters have battled more than 8,600 blazes this year. All of them, with their own unique name: The Bullfrog Fire. The Creek Fire. The Fork Fire. The Wolf Fire. But why name them? And how are they named? The answer to both questions, fire officials say, is almost always tied to the fire’s location. “All fires get a name,” Daniel Berlant, with Cal Fire, said in a video message earlier this year. “That allows the firefighters that are responding to them to quickly understand where they’re going.” Confused about fire names?

    Jeffrey Epstein told Ghislaine Maxwell to offer a reward to anyone who could discredit Virginia Roberts after she accused them of rape, newly unsealed court records from a 2016 deposition show.  In 2015, Roberts sued Epstein and Maxwell claiming they'd defamed her by calling her a liar in her public allegations against them which included that they'd sexually trafficked her to, among other people, Prince Andrew.  After she filed the lawsuit, Epstein and Maxwell tried to squash her claims by discrediting her.   In an email dated January 12 2015, Epstein told Maxwell: 'You can issue a reward to any of Virginia's friends, aquaints, (sic) family, that come forward to help prove her allegations are false.  'The strongest is the dinner and the new version of the Virgin Islands that practiced in an underage orgy.' Maxwell expressly denied giving anyone a reward for trying to discredit Roberts, answering 'absolutely not' when questioned. A portion of...
    Jenny Wu lost a lifetime of memories when her Boulder Creek house burned to the ground in the August inferno that torched a huge expanse of Santa Cruz and San Mateo counties. Jewelry and jade from her parents, family photos and other artifacts of her heritage were all consumed by fire. But she plans to rebuild. “I thought to leave,” said Wu, owner of The Red Pearl restaurant in the tiny forest town. “Then I changed my mind.” The CZU Lightning Complex Fire that leveled hundreds of homes, displaced tens of thousands of people and laid waste to Big Basin Redwoods State Park killed only one person, thanks to widespread evacuations. But not even two years ago in Paradise, another California forest community, a wildfire killed 86 people. Experts say climate change will make future fires bigger and more intense. Nevertheless, here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, many forced...
    A California woman who studied jujitsu for nearly three decades stopped and fought a home intruder who attacked her 81-year-old neighbor this week, authorities said. It's been more than a decade since Lorenza Marrujo properly trained in martial arts, but on Monday the 67-year-old proved she's still a force to be reckoned with. Marrujo, who told San Bernardino Sun she preferred to be called 'Lady Ninja' and enjoyed training to 'Eye of the Tiger,' claimed she would have subdued the suspect sooner had she been prepared. 'I’m getting rusty in places,' Marrujo, a black belt, said. 'I would have done more damage to him.' Lorenza Murrajo (pictured) said she used a neon-yellow baseball bat when Donald Robert Prestwood reportedly broke into her apartment on Monday Marrujo (pictured), 67, trained in jujitsu for 26 years and enjoyed working out to 'Eye of the Tiger' from the Rocky franchise  Authorities said that Marrujo...
    The why and how the human brain develops religious beliefs may stem from our ability to learn, a new study reveals. Researches found individuals who can unconsciously predict complex patterns in the environment believe there is a god who creates order and intervenes in an otherwise chaotic universe. The study used a cognitive test to measure implicit pattern learning, which showed a sequence of dots appeared and disappeared on a computer screen. Participants were told to push a button when a dot appeared, but some learned the distinct patter and were able to predict when it would appear - and sometimes before. The data showed those who noted they had faith in a higher power performed better overall during the experiment.  The team says the results suggest that children with this ability are likely to increase their faith as they grow-up - even if they are in a nonreligious household.  ...
    A California couple has been left stunned after finding their wedding rings amid the smoldering remains of their home, which was torched by wildfires.  Last Wednesday, Jason and Chloe Caroll were forced to flee their property in Vacaville, northeast of San Francisco, as the LNU Lightning Complex fire tore toward them.   'It looked like a tornado of flames,' Chloe stated in an interview with KCRA on Saturday.  California couple Jason and Chloe Carroll left stunned after finding their wedding rings amid the smoldering remains of their home, which was torched by wildfires 'I have just never seen something move so fast… The flames were taller than trees.'  The couple were able to safely evacuate with their two sons, but left some of their most prized possessions - including the wedding rings - back at the house.  Jason and Chloe decided to drive back to the property, only to...
    A nine-year-old black boy has said he is now 'terrified' of cops after North Carolina officers pulled their guns on him and his two friends when they were playing tag outside their apartment complex.  Zakarryya Cornelius, 9, was playing a game with Jaylin Harris, 15, and an unidentified friend, 11, at the Rochelle Manor Apartments complex in Durham when the three black boys were allegedly confronted by five cops pointing their firearms at them and yelling at them to 'get on the ground'.  The officers handcuffed Jaylin before Zakarryya's distraught mom Makeba Hoffler ran over to stop the incident.   The incident comes as tensions continue to build between law enforcement and black communities across America following a series of recent incidents where cops have 'murdered' or seriously injured black men and women.   Zakarryya Cornelius, 9, (left) has said he is now 'terrified' of cops after North Carolina officers pulled their...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- With all the fires burning in the Bay Area right now, you might be confused about what their names mean. Here's a primer on how wildfires get their name and what some of the current fire names refer to.Wildfire names are often chosen by dispatchers, though the first crew on the scene may also name the fire. A wildfire is typically named for a nearby landmark, often a road, a lake or a mountain. The recent Carr, Camp and Woolsey fires, for example, were all named for roads in the vicinity.Multiple fires can break out in one place, like when lightning strikes multiple times in a certain area. In that case, you'll hear those fires referred to as a "complex." The complex will often take the name of either the biggest fire in the group, the area in which it is burning or the cause of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Visitors are able to enter the White House complex without having their temperatures checked for the first time since mid-March, although several other coronavirus precautions remain in place. Those who come near the president will still undergo temperature checks and testing for the virus. Over the past three months, those seeking to access the White House complex first had to get their temperatures checked and answer a question about whether they had experienced any symptoms associated with COVID-19. The White House said Monday it was scaling back complex-wide temperature checks as the District of Columbia enters phase two in its reopening. “In addition to social distancing, hand sanitizer, regular deep cleaning of all work spaces, and voluntary facial coverings, every staff member and guest in close proximity to the president and vice president is still being temperature checked, asked symptom histories, and tested for COVID-19,”...

    On the surface, there’s nothing wrong with the NBA’s technology suggestion to players for its resumption of the 2019-20 season. The league is making a smart ring available that tracks detailed health information in real time. The product, made by the company Oura, can sense elevated temperature. Because fevers are a primary symptom of COVID-19, that’s a useful feature these days. But there could be unintended consequences of normalizing wearable technology in professional sports, a trend that’s gained steam in recent years. It’s a bigger deal in the long term than it might seem. The potential problem is one of personal freedom, privacy and basic employee rights. It’s something the corporate world is already reckoning with, and in some cases leading workers to raise alarm.
