A judge on Wednesday gave the owner of a downtown Greensburg apartment complex some time to get their elevators up to snuff.
The Tribune-Review reports that the attorneys for the owners of Pershing Square Apartments said that the upgrades they want to do are substantial and will cost them $280,000. The owners, a California-based LLC called “I Choose Not To Run,” came under fire over two code violations, one pertaining to the elevators, the other pertaining to a fire safety and evacuation plan. Judges said that both elevators need to be in service, but only one is and that is suffering overheating because of overuse. Both elevators were up and running in October, and repair crews were hired to upgrade the elevators.
(CNN)Netflix is quickly approaching 150 million subscribers.
Netflix (NFLX) said Thursday that it added nearly nine million new paying subscribers during the final three months of 2018, beating its own expectations of 7.6 million new subscribers.
The service now has 139 million subscribers globally. It expects to add another 8.9 million subscribers in the quarter that ends in March, the vast majority of which are expected to come from strong growth in its international markets.
Expectations were high for the company heading into the holiday quarter report. The stock had soared roughly 50% from its low hit in late December amid a broader market sell-off.
Netflix stock was down about 3% in after hours trading Thursday following the report.

One-Foot-Plus Ohio Valley Snowstorms Aren’t Typical
While snowstorms producing at least a foot of snow aren’t unusual in, say, northern New England or upstate New York, they’re much more rare in parts of the Ohio Valley outside the Great Lakes snowbelts.
The last time this happened in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, was the March 7-8, 2008, snowstorm. Columbus has only seen a trio of snowstorms produce a two-day total of at least one foot of snow in records dating to 1948.
Pittsburgh has only seen 13 snow events with at least 12 inches of snow over two days dating to 1948, the last occurring on Feb. 5-6, 2010.
Last month, Judge Royce Lamberth said the case of Clinton’s email server involved “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
Judge Royce Lamberth ruled Tuesday that Obama administration officials, including national security adviser Susan Rice and deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, must answer written questions as part of a conservative judicial advocacy group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department over Clinton’s emails.
The lawsuit by Judicial Watch – now with the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit – was first filed in 2014 in an effort to obtain records related to Clinton and her staff’s response to the Benghazi attack. Specifically, the group sought documents about Rice’s explanation immediately after the attack on the U.S. compound that characterized it as a protest turned violent instead of a deliberate terrorist assault. At the time of the attack, Rice was serving as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
“But the case has since expanded to question the motives behind Clinton’s private email use while Secretary and behind the government’s conduct in this litigation,” Lamberth wrote in his Tuesday order.
Judicial Watch claims that Clinton intentionally used her private email server in an attempt to shield her communications from FOIA requests and that the State Department acted deceptively and did not really try to complete the request.
Now a study finds even simple housework like cooking or cleaning may make a difference in brain health in our 70s and 80s.
“Exercise is an inexpensive way to improve health and our study shows it may have a protective effect on the brain,” says Dr. Aron S. Buchman with Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, who led the study.
President Trump’s nominee for attorney general William Barr told senators during his confirmation hearing on Tuesday that he supports the president’s call for new barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, while departing from the president’s public stances on the Russia probe.
Lampert’s bid, boosted from an earlier $5 billion offer, prevailed after weeks of back-and-forth deliberations that culminated in a days-long bankruptcy auction held behind closed doors. The billionaire’s proposal, made through his hedge fund ESL Investments Inc, will save up to 45,000 jobs and keep 425 stores open across the United States.
Lampert boosted his bid by adding more cash and assuming more liabilities, the sources said. The auction, held at the Manhattan offices of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, the law firm representing Sears, concluded in the early morning hours of Wednesday.
The strike prompted the International Socialist Organization and Democratic Socialists of America to set up the fundraising page to help feed an estimated 32,000 striking teachers and staff members. Campaign organizer Clare Lemlich says the campaign started with the intention of bringing awareness of education issues to the city and to include more locals in the effort.
A new caravan of at least 500 migrants late Monday began its perilous journey from a rain-soaked bus station in Honduras to the United States border, members of the group told Fox News.
The scene was a familiar one: The group had a mix of people that included some mothers carrying their young children on their shoulders. It’s unclear where the group will rest, but past migrants have used the Honduran city of Quimistan, which is 35 miles from the bus stop, as an early checkpoint.
As they walked, some migrants pleaded with local store owners to give them food or water for their journey, according to the Associated Press.
Mueller just got a bit older and wasted a lot of government money. “Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report may not be as shocking as it has been built up to be” – at least according to ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.
Karl’s comments come two days after the New York Times reported that the FBI opened an investigation into whether Trump was working on behalf of Russia in 2017 following the president’s dismissal of former FBI director James Comey.
