Post-Gazette.com – WASHINGTON — Washington outplayed the Penguins for long stretches of Saturday’s Game 2 at Verizon Center, but failed to inflict enough damage where it really mattered: on the scoreboard.

ADDS LOCAL PROJECTS COULD START SOONER – FILE – In this Sept. 11, 2014 file photo, city worker Ralph Mendoza repairs a street in downtown Los Angeles.

The California Transportation Commission prioritize projects for the funding and the first construction work will likely begin in the summer of 2018, said Mark Dinger, a spokesman for Caltrans. However, local projects could get off the ground sooner, said Randy Breault, a public works director in Brisbane who serves on the board of directors for the California League of Cities.

“Safe and smooth roads make California a better place to live and strengthen our economy,” Brown said in a statement. “This legislation will put thousands of people to work.”

North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile on Saturday shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that failure to curb its nuclear and ballistic missile programs could lead to “catastrophic consequences”.

U.S. and South Korean officials said the test, from an area north of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, appeared to have failed, in what would be North Korea’s fourth successive unsuccessful missile test since March.

California Sea Level Could Rise 10 Feet By End Of This Century | The Huffington Post

Airports, roads, towns and homes could be swamped, a state report says.

A California government council is warning that climate change could cause ocean waters off the coast to rise far higher than previously anticipated ― an increase in sea-level by as much as 10 feet by the end of the century.

This worst-case scenario would destroy airports in Oakland and San Francisco, and would swamp roadways, low-lying bridges, railroad tracks, farmland, beaches and some towns. As many as 42,000 homes would be completely submerged, warns the report released this month by a California Ocean Protection Council advisory team. The council adopted an updated report with higher sea-level estimates on Wednesday.
