Surfer Laird Hamilton joined the rescue effort to run up a herd of bison swept away when flooding tore through Hanalei town, Kauai, over the weekend.
The Honolulu Star Advertiser reported some of the bison were caught up in the flooding and others were spooked by the rescue helicopters.
A near record 28 inches of rainfall over the weekend brought devastating floods to the north shore of Kauai swamping homes, triggering landslides, and washing out roads. The National Guard has evacuated hundreds of people and have airlifted in supplies to people cut off in Hanalei.

NYC Gets Interest from 12 Companies for Dockless Bike-Share Pilot

NYC’s DOT has gotten offers from 12
companies to bring dockless bikes to the city.

Dockless bikes are shareable bikes that riders
don’t have to return to a docking station.

Instead, riders use an app to locate the nearest
bike, and leave it wherever when they’re done.

Right now, Citi Bike is the only bike-share
program in the city.

The docks are mostly concentrated in Manhattan

which is why the city wants to pilot dockless
bikes in the outer boroughs.

However, people also have concerns.

[[SBs]]
[[Chris Tewes]]
“I could see some people who are a little careless, maybe putting it in the way of a store or something like that. I could see that being a problem too.”


[[CG]]
Companies that expressed interest in doing a dockless pilot:
JUMP
lennybike
LimeBike
MetroBike
Mobike
Motivate (Citi Bike’s parent company)
ofo
P3GM
Pace (subsidiary of Zagster)
QuimoCycle
Riide
Spin
Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen said they would
choose one or several companies by early May.

Designer Stuart Weitzman Displays Personal Shoe Collection at NY Historical Society

These “million dollar heels” worn by actress
Laura Harring at the 2002 Academy Awards

are one of over 100 pairs being showcased
at the New-York Historical Society.

The shoes are the personal collection of
designer Stuart Weitzman.

He says before they went on public display,
they were displayed in his house.

[[[ STUART WEITZMAN, SHOE DESIGNER]]]
“And designers create them and they are unique in design often especially the original versions of them and they're worth looking at. So we had them in prime locations throughout the house."

The shoes were collected over 30 years

and range in age from the 1800s to
the present.

[[STUART WEITZMAN, SHOE DESIGNER]]
"I would bet that the most priceless shoe here is the pair of spectator pumps from the early forties that Joe DiMaggio brought to the New York Yankee dugout and had signed by all his players as a gift to his girlfriend. This was way pre-Marilyn Monroe. And that is as far as we in the industry and in collecting world know, the only pair of signed shoes, and of course by a notable Yankee, as well as all of his wonderful teammates who did win the World Series that year.")

Weitzman is a second generation shoe designer.

He said he thought he was going to work
on Wall Street, but ended up following his father.

[[STUART WEITZMAN, SHOE DESIGNER]]
"I think my most favorite and most important shoe, is a shoe that was made by my father who was a wonderful shoe designer. So much so that I had no intention to try to follow him, it was—that competition I wasn't interested in."

The exhibit is called “Walk This Way: Footwear from
the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes.”

It runs April 20 to Oct. 8.

NYC Food Vendor uses Fake Identities to avoid $117K in fines-NEW

The NYC Health Dept. issued 155 health citations
over 10 years to a food vendor named Abdelhakim
Hassan Ganash, the New York Post reported.

Instead of paying them, Ganash got
a new business license 3 times.

Vendors in the city must pay off citations
before they can renew their license

which they are required to do every 2 years.

He was caught once in 2012 by the Health
Department.

As a result, he was forbidden from getting
any more licenses.

But in 2016, he again got a license.

This time he gave his middle initial
instead of his full middle name

and changed his phone number and address.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

He now owes $117,300 in fines.

He was issued another license that year.

The Health Department has vowed to
crack down on wrongly-issued permits.

No criminal charges will be filed in the 2016 death of pop star Prince from an opioid overdose, a Minnesota prosecutor said on Thursday, April 19.

“We simply do not have sufficient evidence to charge anyone with a crime related to Prince‘s death,” Carver County Attorney Mark Metz told a news conference following a two-year inquiry.

Prince, 57, was found dead at his Paisley Park home and recording studio complex near Minneapolis on April 21, 2016. The official cause of death was a self-administered overdose of the painkiller fentanyl, which is 50 times stronger than heroin.

Metz said the musician died after taking a counterfeit Vicodin pill laced with fentanyl.

No Criminal Charges Have Been Made in Prince’s Death On Thursday, Carver County attorney Mark Metz made the announcement due to the lack of evidence of how the musician obtained the pills. Quote: “Prince had no idea he was taking a counterfeit pill that could kill him.” The ‘Purple Rain’ singer, born Prince Rogers Nelson, died at the age of 57 on Apr. 21, 2016 after overdosing on pills that contained the powerful painkiller fentanyl. He was found unresponsive at his home and recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Dr. Michael Schulenberg, the physician who saw Prince in the two weeks before his death, offered to pay $30,000 to the U.S. to settle a federal civil violation. According to CNN, Schulenberg’s attorney denied liability but offered the settlement “in order to avoid the expense, delay, and unknown outcome of litigation.”

No criminal charges will be filed in Prince’s
2016 death from opioid overdose.

Mark Metz, Carver County Attorney:
Without probable cause and no identified suspect,
the Carver County attorney's office cannot file
any criminal charges involving the death of Prince.

Prince, 57, was found dead at his Paisley Park
studio near Minneapolis on April 21, 2016.

Prince died after taking a counterfeit Vicodin pill
laced with fentanyl.

Fentanyl is 50 times stronger than heroin.

Mark Metz, Carver County Attorney:
Nothing in the evidence suggests that Prince knowingly ingested fentanyl.
In addition there is no evidence that any person
associated with Prince knew Prince possessed
any counterfeit pills containing fentanyl.
In all likelihood Prince had no idea he was taking
a counterfeit pill that could kill him.


Authorities have been investigating the source
of the fentanyl for nearly two years.

They still have not determined where the drug
came from or how Prince got it.

The RCMP say a truck was in the intersection at the time of its fatal collision with the Humboldt Broncos bus. Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki says the force is working to determine why the truck was there. (April 19, 2018) SOUNDBITE: Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki, RCMP PLACELINE: Regina CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Police say it's too early to say what happened in a fatal bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team and whether charges will be laid. RCMP Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki says what is certain is that a tractor-trailer was in the intersection when the truck and the team bus collided on April 6. "All of our efforts are dedicated to determining why the tractor-trailer unit was in the intersection," Zablocki said Thursday. "We know the road conditions were clear and the sun was shining at the time of the collision." Sixteen people — including 10 players — were killed and another 13 people were injured. The driver of the semi-trailer was not hurt. He was taken into custody immediately after the collision and released later that evening. "The tractor-trailer unit driver remains in regular contact with our officers," said Zablocki. He said the driver's level of experience, the size of his load and where he was headed will be part of the investigation. Sukhmander Singh, the owner of the Calgary-based trucking company, said the truck driver is doing better. "He's feeling good now and going to the doctor," said Singh, who added the driver is still in counselling.

Here’s Why Americans Aren’t Eating Guinea Pig
videoelephant
2018-04-19    0 views
You can legally eat guinea pig in the U.S., but we still don’t really do it that often. Eating guinea pigs is an ancient tradition in many different parts of South America. In Peru alone, around 65 million guinea pigs are eaten every year. So why aren’t American’s eating them too?

In the U.S., most of us associate guinea pigs as cute cuddly animals. It’s hard to get past that association, so the idea of eating them seems a little grizzly. But it’s something you might want to consider. Guinea pigs require way fewer resources than other animals and the reproduce like crazy so it’s easy to keep them in stock.

This makes them less expensive and more environmentally friendly. The guinea pig market is also helping farmers in other countries get out of poverty. What’s more is that serving the little rodents is actually legal in the states. It’s considered an exotic meat — in the same category as venison, rabbit and bison. But many people would sooner eat rabbit than they would a guinea pig. It’s sale of guinea pig of regulated by the FDA and some restaurants do sell it. So any it’s time to give it a try — it could become your new favorite protein.
