Howard has prior felony convictions for misconduct involving a controlled substance, theft, and failure to register as a sex offender, among other offenses. Howard has additional state charges pending against him for vehicle theft and failure to register as a sex offender. According to a press release from the U.S. District Attorney’s office, in the past few months, federal guncharges have been filed against 10 individuals, all of whom reside in Anchorage, in connection with anumber of stolen vehicle investigations: APD Chief Justin Doll answered questions during the press conference about the work that Anchorage Police has put into reducing high crime offenses.

Curtin had burglar and auto theft tools in a vehicle, and has a prior state felony conviction for misconduct involving a controlled substance. Doll: “There were over 500 arrests made last year for vehicle theft, and in all of those we’re looking at other extenuating factors like is there a firearm involved,  are there other felonies that have been committed at the same time.” Antoni Peralta, 31, is currently charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Peralta has prior felony convictions for vehicle theft and robbery. Poly Lomu, 21, is currently charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Margerum was stopped in a stolen vehicle and has additional state charges pending for vehicle theft. Each of these cases have been investigated by APD’s Property Crime Unit, with the cooperation and assistance from the Alaska Department of Law, FBI and ATF. Schroder: “Our part of the case is charged separately and prosecuted separately from the state charges.  So, any state charges will still be ongoing, prosecuted by the DA’s office, and then our charges will go separately.” last_img read more

Amazon Japan reportedly stops selling Huawei devices

first_imgAmazon Japan apparently isn’t directly selling Huawei’s products anymore. Kazuhiro Nogi / AFP / Getty Images The Amazon Japan store became the latest entity to ice out Huawei by removing all its products from direct sale, a Nikkei report said Friday.Despite the end of direct sales, Amazon Japan customers can still buy Huawei phones, tablets and PCs through third-party sellers in the online marketplace, Nikkei noted.The Chinese company’s devices were listed as out of stock for direct sale in the wake of the US blacklisting Huawei last week. President Donald Trump signed an executive order effectively banning the company from doing business with US companies or governments based on national security concerns over Huawei’s close ties with the Chinese government.In the US, Microsoft also reportedly removed Huawei MateBook laptops from its online store.Neither Amazon nor Huawei immediately responded to requests for comment.First published at 5:53 a.m. PT.Update, 6:23 a.m.: Adds more detail. $60 at Best Buy Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. 7 4:59 Post a comment Amazon Huawei,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Sarah Tew/CNET $999 Read Google Home Hub review What is going on between Huawei and the US?

Sprint Apple iPhone XS An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

Mysterious Siberian hole likely due to methane buildup and release

first_img Explore further What created this huge crater in Siberia? © 2014 Phys.org Last month reindeer herders in the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia came across a mysterious hole in the ground—after reporting what they’d discovered, a helicopter was dispatched and personnel aboard took snapshots of what was found. The photos have since gone viral on the Internet generating speculation about what caused the hole to come about—some suggested it was nothing more than a meteor crater or sinkhole, others seemed convinced it was part of an alien invasion, while others yet postulated that it was probably the remains of a collapsed pingo (a mound of earth covered ice). Now, after visiting the site of the first hole discovered, a team of researchers has concluded that the hole, and others like it that have been spotted, are most likely due to a sudden release of methane as permafrost melts. They note Siberia has experienced extremely warm summers the past two years.After sending a sensor down into the hole the researchers found an unusually high concentration of methane—9.6 percent, as compared to the normal 0.000179 percent. That finding and the fact that mounds of dirt near the mouth of hole indicate a blast of some sort occurred, has the researchers convinced that the warm summers caused permafrost melting which released underground methane. Gas pressure, they believe, built up to a tipping point, then was suddenly released, pushing out the material that had been sitting on top of it. Oddly, the depth of the hole is still not known. The researchers lowered a camera, but the line used was not long enough to allow for reaching the water (likely from melting permafrost) at the bottom. They estimate the depth to the water is approximately 70 meters. They would not even venture a guess as to the depth of the hole below the water.The researchers plan a return visit to the hole to conduct more research but aren’t confident of what they will find—they note that the walls are already collapsing and water movement can be heard, suggesting that whatever evidence exists now, might be gone by the time they return. This frame grab made Wednesday, July 16, 2014, shows a crater, discovered recently in the Yamal Peninsula, in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Russia. Russian scientists said Thursday July 17, 2014 that they believe the 60-meter wide crater, discovered recently in far northern Siberia, could be the result of changing temperatures in the region. Andrei Plekhanov, a senior researcher at the Scientific Research Center of the Arctic, traveled on Wednesday to the crater. Plekhanov said 80 percent of the crater appeared to be made up of ice and that there were no traces of an explosion, eliminating the possibility that a meteorite had struck the region.

Another accident took place near Zoological Garden at Alipore in which a car moved onto the pavement after the driver suddenly fell ill. According to the police, it was a narrow escape from a major accident as the car moved onto the pavement that remains congested in the rush hours.

Spanish mobile operator MásMóvil the countrys fo

first_imgSpanish mobile operator MásMóvil, the country’s fourth-largest telco, is planning to launch a TV service in partnership with Huawei, according to Spanish press.According to financial daily El Español, citing two unnamed sources, the operator plans to launch an ‘open’ TV platform that will make third-party services such as Netflix, HBO and Amazon available via a hybrid Android-based set-top that will also give access to the country’s digital-terrestrial TV channels.According to El Español, MásMóvil will also look to incorporate content from Sky. The UK-based pay TV giant has reportedly been planning to launch a version of its Now TV OTT TV service in the Spanish market for around €10 a month as part of a wider plan to launch OTT TV services in markets across Europe.According to to El Español, the Android box to be deployed by MásMóvil will also give access to seven-day catch-up and cloud recording.The paper says that the operator has also been in talks with Mediapro to include BeIN Sports, which airs coverage of Champions League football and a number of Spanish La Liga football matches, and potentially other football content. However, rival operators are likely to take a close interest in any agreements that would give MásMóvil an advantage in terms of the price it pays for premium sports content.MásMóvil CEO Meinrad Spenger has previously expressed an ambition to offer TV as part of the service provider’s offering. The operator is the country’s number four in terms of subscribers, but is not as profitable as rival players and is likely to come under further pressure as Movistar and Vodafone seek to break into the low-cost mobile business via their Tuenti and Lowi services respectively.MásMóvil, which expanded to its current size through acquiring low-cost mobile player Yoigo from under the nose of Zegona Communications, the UK-based owner of regional cable operator Telecable, may also come under further pressure from the combination of Basque Country cable operator Euskaltel and Telecable and their expansion into other parts of Spain and into the mobile business.last_img read more
