office center:

    SUNNYVALE — An office complex at a choice site in Sunnyvale has undergone a wide-ranging facelift that’s aimed at making it more appealing and viable at a time of coronavirus-linked social distancing. Embarcadero Capital Partners bought the office center in 2016 and completed a major renovation and revamp of the complex, which is located in Sunnyvale near the interchange of U.S. Highway 101 and Lawrence Expressway. The office complex, which totals 181,200 square feet, is a long and narrow structure that now offers plenty of flexibility to be leased to one or multiple tenants. The renovation completely modernized the interiors and spruced up the exterior of the office center, which previously consisted of four closely situated buildings. The redevelopment effort resulted in a complex that could become a single building. Embarcadero Capital Partners enclosed multiple breezeways in a fashion to unify the four buildings into a single structure. The enclosures...
    A massive 258-acre campus that once was occupied by IBM in the Hudson Valley has been put on the market. McGrath Realty announced that the former IBM facility in Kingston, which was first built in the 1950s, is up for sale, “offering plenty of opportunities” for a potential buyer. “The property was built in the 1950s by IBM,” realtors said. “What IBM built and left behind is a level of infrastructure that would be difficult to replicate and that is more than sufficient for any contemporary use. “The site’s ample supply of power, water, fiber communications trunks, and other industrial-grade features have continued to attract a diverse mix of occupants under its current owner.” Realtors noted that the property already has an approved master plan that could be used for office, industrial, education, hospitality, agricultural, technology, retail, residential, or recreational use. “The design will allow companies’ corporate identities to...

    ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — A new addiction treatment center is opening in the town of St. Johnsbury next month. The Caledonian Record reports that SaVida Health, which has an office in Newport, will be opening its St. Johnsbury location March 2 in what used to be a veterinarian’s office. SaVida Center Administrator Mandy Lumsden says that since there were separate treatment rooms for the vet, the floor plan was ideal for a medical office. The clinic will prescribe medications and also offer medical care, counseling and case management. “This comprehensive and integrated approach to recovery is widely accepted as the most effective form of outpatient treatment for substance use disorder today,” Lumsden said. Lumsden said the new clinic would supplement an existing substance abuse treatment clinic in the community. SaVida does not provide methadone treatment. She said SaVida aims to help patients who do not need daily doses. The...

    Construction equipment tears into the Pajarito Mountains in Arizona on Feb. 10. President Joe Biden on day one terminated the so-called “national emergency” his predecessor declared as an excuse to build his border wall, ordering a halt to construction “as soon as possible but in no case later than seven days” while his administration reassessed the legality of the project. Biden last week then informed Congress of the termination, telling leaders that he had “determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border was unwarranted.” But weeks after Biden ordered that pause to wall construction at the southern border, environmental advocates have discovered what appears to be bulldozers continuing to level through a mountain and critical wildlife habitat in Arizona, “in an apparent violation of President Biden’s proclamation halting border wall construction,” Center for Biological Diversity said. “The footage was reportedly shot on Wednesday, Feb. 10, by members of the Tucson Samaritans, who shared it with the Center.” “ALERT: Contractors...

    BURLINGAME — A big office and retail complex is slated to sprout next to a shuttered post office in downtown Burlingame, a project that could refresh the Peninsula city’s central business district. The project would total 185,000 square feet and be built next to the former U.S. Postal Service office at 220 Park Road in downtown Burlingame. A joint venture of Sares Regis Group of Northern California and Dostart Development Company intends to begin construction on the project during the July-September third quarter of this year.

    The Van Nuys man whose lawsuit over a massive Los Angeles Department of Water and Power bill ultimately led to a tangled legal scandal and an FBI raid of City Hall has filed a new lawsuit against the city. The federal lawsuit by Antwon Jones alleges violation of civil rights and waste of taxpayer funds by the city. The lawsuit also names City Atty. Mike Feuer and two former high-ranking attorneys in his office: Jim Clark and Thom Peters. The lawsuit claims the city and others used Jones as an “unwitting pawn” and that the city’s settlement of Jones’ class-action lawsuit over DWP billing errors “was the product of collusion and a fraud on the court.” Jones’ lawsuit also seeks to bar the city and Feuer from “illegally expending and wasting more taxpayer funds to conceal and cover up their misconduct.” Feuer, in a statement, called the lawsuit a “crude...
    DUBLIN — The U.S. subsidiary of a major Japan-based construction and real estate firm has bought a large office complex in Dublin, hinting at confidence in East Bay commercial property markets despite coronavirus-linked economic uncertainties.

    Even with the constant drumbeat of news about election high jinks in 2020, allegations of a fake voting center in Orange County stood out as something brazen. The center was advertised on Vietnamese language radio and television as an election assistance site, a “secure” location where non-English speakers could guarantee their absentee ballots weren’t “fraudulent.” Another sign that was posted outside the office said “ballot room” or “polling place” in Vietnamese. In reality, it was the campaign office for Republican Westminster Councilwoman Kimberly Ho. Two months after the election, a number of questions about the site remain unanswered, including whether the campaign misled voters by promoting the office as a place to drop off ballots and receive other election-related services. Critics also raised possible repercussions: Will other campaigns see value in such voting assistance, muddying the distinction from official polling places? Ho’s campaign has denied any wrongdoing.

    By WILSON RING, Associated Press The U.S. Justice Department filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday against the University of Vermont Medical Center alleging it forces staff members who object to abortion on religious grounds to participate in abortion procedures. The Vermont lawsuit alleges the Burlington hospital violated the Church Amendment, which prevents hospitals from discriminating against health care workers who refuse to perform or assist with abortions. “No institution or person should force any health care provider to perform an abortion if doing so would violate the provider’s religious beliefs or moral convictions," Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband, of the Civil Rights Division, said in a statement announcing the lawsuit. “This kind of indecent coercion violates everything this country stands for.” In a statement issued before the lawsuit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Burlington, the hospital said it had been negotiating with the Department of Health and Human...
    BOSTON (AP) — Officers at a Dartmouth detention center used excessive force when they deployed pepper spray, police dogs and a flash bang device against inmates who refused to be tested for COVID-19, according to a state report released Tuesday. In a scathing report, the Massachusetts attorney general’s office determined that the Bristol County sheriff’s office violated the civil rights of federal immigration detainees after some became destructive in a May altercation. The report acknowledged that some inmates had thrown plastic chairs at officers and damaged property, but it says the scene had been calm for an hour when a sheriff’s team entered and used force. Attorney General Maura Healey urged the Department of Homeland Security to terminate its contract with the sheriff’s office and threatened to sue the sheriff’s office if it fails to implement changes.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Anoka County Jail has finished installation and is now using the first full body scanner within a detention setting in the state.

    Protesters crying foul over the vote-counting rallied outside tabulation centers in Phoenix and Detroit on Friday, responding to groundless claims by President Donald Trump that the Democrats were trying to steal the White House. The protests came as elections officials in several states where Democrat Joe Biden was ahead said the anger vented outside their doors made them worried about the safety of their workers.

Sheriff’s deputies kept protesters in a “free speech” zone away from the entrance to the building. “When we start auditing some of these voter rolls, their fraud may actually be exposed,” conservative activist Charlie Kirk told the crowd, eliciting cheers.

    The fallout from a fatal shooting following dueling demonstrations at Denver's Civic Center Park on October 10 has gone national, with the right-wing media attempting to blame a Black Lives Matter protester for instigating the incident even though the fatal shot was allegedly fired by Matthew Dolloff, a man hired to serve as a security guard for a 9News team. In one video, that protester, identified in multiple outlets as Jacob Kelly, can be seen yelling, "Mace me, motherfucker" at Lee Keltner, the 49-year-old victim who was officially identified by the Denver coroner's office on October 12.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Legal woes continue for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. First, seven of his top assistants accused him of improper influence, abuse of office and bribery in relation to an investigation sought by one of his wealthy donors — Nate Paul. Now, the Republican’s office may have to deal with legal action by the Austin real estate developer. In a letter sent Sunday, a lawyer for Paul wrote that Paxton’s staff was hostile to the probe from the first. The letter does not specifically say Paul will sue, but it is styled as a “litigation hold” demanding the preservation of all related documents. It also questions whether the announcement last week closing the investigation was legitimate. The letter adds to the confusion around a mire of investigations and legal disputes that came to public attention this month when the top lawyer’s in Paxton’s made the allegations. The unspecified...

    Nineteen detainees in the same dormitory at the Aurora Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days, according to a report from Congressman Jason Crow's office, marking the most significant outbreak at that detention center. "This spread within a single dorm shows the inherently dangerous nature of congregate settings like ICE detention centers," says Liz Jordan, an attorney with the Denver-based Civil Rights Enforcement and Education Center. "Even if the facility were following all CDC recommendations, an outbreak like this is not only possible, but likely. The safest thing ICE can do is release people to shelter at home with their families.

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support is building a new $15 million facility that they say will double the non-residential number of women and children they can serve each year. The new 28,600 square-foot space will establish evidence-based centers for treatment, advocacy and education. “The vast majority of abused women will not seek emergency shelter, but instead rely on non-residential services, counseling, advocacy and legal services,” said Genesis CEO Jan Langbein. “The new building will allow us to expand upon these services.” Genesis has been providing safety, shelter and support for women and children who have experienced domestic violence since 1985.

    Late show host Stephen Colbert raked Bill Clinton over the coals Tuesday night over comments he made in his Democratic National Convention speech in which the former president audaciously lectured President Trump about proper conduct in the Oval Office. The rebuke was rich coming from Clinton, who infamously got frisky in the Oval Office with intern Monica Lewinsky and then was impeached for lying to Congress about it. That fact wasn't lost on Colbert. "At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it is a storm center," Clinton preached in his taped DNC speech Tuesday. "All right, that's true, that's a good point," Colbert replied. "But I don't think Bill Clinton gets to lecture anyone on what should happen in the Oval Office." He added that "those in glass houses should not be allowed near the interns" just in case anyone wasn't...
    Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention left Stephen Colbert speechless. He had a lot more to say about Bill Clinton’s.  In his second live Late Show of the week, Colbert broke down the biggest moments from night two of the DNC, or as he called it, “one of the most electrifying infomercials of the year.” Noting that the theme for the second night was “Leadership Matters,” he joked that the Republicans had already decided to rename night two of their convention, “All Qualities Matter.”  The host’s sharpest commentary, however, came in response to the address delivered by former President Bill Clinton, “seen here finding out Ghislaine Maxwell was just arrested,” he joked.  “At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it is a storm center,” Clinton said in his speech. “Alright, that’s true, that’s a good point,” Colbert replied. “But I...
    During a speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, former President Bill Clinton criticized President Donald Trump by stating that during the coronavirus pandemic, “the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center.” Clinton also stated that Trump is determined “to deny responsibility” and that “If you want a president who defines the job as spending hours a day watching TV and zapping people on social media, he’s your man.” Clinton criticized Trump’s coronavirus response and stated, “At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center. There’s only chaos. Just one thing never changes, his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame. The buck never stops there.

    Bill Clinton will issue a rare and searing rebuke of the sitting president in his Democratic National Convention speech on Tuesday evening, accusing Donald Trump of bringing chaos to the office he once held. In a preview of his five-minute speech, the former two-term Democratic president who occupied the White House from 1993 to 2001 paints Trump as an ineffective leader who he claims has failed in his response to the coronavirus pandemic. “Donald Trump says we’re leading the world. Well, we are the only major industrial country to have its unemployment rate triple,” Clinton says. “At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center, instead it’s a storm center.

Just one thing never changes — his determination to deny responsibility and shift the blame,” he said. “The buck never stops there,” he continued, referring to the iconic “The Buck Stops Here” sign...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans' district attorney has been ordered to pay more than $50,000 in penalties for failing to produce public records related to a 2015 request. Civil District Judge Ethel Julian's ruling was issued July 27 against District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro in a public records lawsuit filed in May 2017. The Roderick and Solange MacArthur Justice Center accused Cannizzaro of refusing to turn over records documenting his use of subpoenas. According to the court record, Cannizzaro had rejected the request as too burdensome and had referred MacArthur center lawyer Emily Washington to the clerk of court. After the 2015 request was made by the MacArthur center, the online news outlet The Lens revealed that Cannizzaro’s office had sometimes issued documents labeled as subpoenas that did not have court approval, meaning — Washington argued — the clerk of court likely would not have some of the requested records....
    If you're going to break into your city's police headquarters and commit arson while sporting a tattoo of your last name in giant letters on your back, a word of advice: Wear a shirt.
