Yellow vest protests: More than 100 arrested as violence returns to Paris – BBC News

Rioters clash with police, unleashing some of the worst violence Paris has seen in months.

With many clad in black and wearing masks to hide their faces, rioters in parts of the city burned barricades, vandalised banks, set rubbish bins on fire and hurled cobblestones at police.

By Saturday evening, Paris police said 147 people had been arrested across the capital.

The nationwide protests were intended to send a message to French President Emmanuel Macron, whose government has been accused of ignoring the needs of ordinary citizens.

John Bel Edwards: Louisiana’s Democratic governor wins reelection, CNN projects – CNNPolitics

Louisiana Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards narrowly won reelection, CNN projected Saturday night, beating out Republican challenger Eddie Rispone, who was backed by President Donald Trump.

Washington (CNN)Louisiana Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards narrowly won reelection, CNN projected Saturday night, beating out Republican challenger Eddie Rispone, who was backed by President Donald Trump.

Edwards will claim victory in a deep red state Trump won by 20 percentage points in 2016, and against a businessman who closely aligned himself with the President. Trump held two rallies in Louisiana over the past 10 days, but the attempt at a last-minute boost was not enough to carry Rispone over the finish line.
This is the second Democratic gubernatorial victory in a red state this month, coming after a Democratic victory in Kentucky. Democrat Andy Beshear defeated Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in a state that Trump won by 30 percentage points in 2016.
“Tonight, the people of Louisiana have chosen to chart their own path,” Edwards told a crowd of supporters in the state Saturday night. “You know, I have never been more hopeful that Louisiana’s best days are ahead, because we’ve proven what we can do when we put people over politics.”

Fire destroys business in Butler County

Fire along Hicks Road

A large fire destroyed a business in Penn Township, Butler County, on Friday evening.

The building is along the 100 block of Hicks Road near Route 8. The building used to house a glass factory but witnesses said it was now home to Affordable Customs & Electronics.

Witnesses said the man who runs the business did repairs on small engines, such as the ones in go-karts. There were likely gas cans and other chemicals inside the shop.

The building went up in flames after the owner left for dinner. Multiple fire departments were at the scene for hours Friday night and were called out again Saturday morning when it rekindled.

Part of the building has collapsed. Firefighters are still investigating what started the fire.

Police won’t investigate Browns Steelers Brawl – Pittsburgh Current

The hit that Browns defensive end Myles Garrett laid on Steelers QB Mason Rudolph will not trigger an automatic police investigation

By Charlie Deitch
Pittsburgh Current Editor
charlie@pittsburghcurrent.com

A Cleveland Police spokesperson says that the hit that Browns defensive end Myles Garrett laid on Steelers QB Mason Rudolph will not trigger an automatic police investigation. Garrett ripped Rudolph’s helmet off the signal-caller’s head and bashed him in the head with it.

Cleveland Police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said that in order for there to be an investigation in this instance, Rudolph would have to return to Cleveland and file formal charges with the police. Ciaccia says an investigation would then take place and the prosecuting attorney’s office would decide what, if any, charges would be filed.

On Friday morning, Rudolph’s agent Timothy Younger told the Post-Gazette’s Ray Fittipaldo: “that he is still gathering information on Thursday night’s incident before any decisions regarding legal or civil action on Rudolph’s behalf are made,” Fittipaldo wrote. On Thursday night Younger tweeted:

Younger & Associates/QB Limited@YoungerAssoc

There are many risks an NFL QB assumes with every snap taken on the field. Being hit on your uncovered head by a helmet being swung by a 275 lb DE is not one of them. Tonight could have had a catastrophic ending. The matter will be reviewed thoroughly.

Lemon Tree Record Covers

Lemon Tree Record Covers

Lemon Tree Records

Founding Date/Founder(s): 2014, Bobby Smith

Genre: Punk, Emo, Indie Rock. “We just try to focus on pumping up good people, we’re far more concerned about who the bands are as people than what their music sounds like.”

Artists/Bands: Currently feature Booze Radly, Always Tired, Ghost Music, Anna’s Anchor, and The Eastern Portrait. Will be working with Milpool, The Snipped, TV’s Norm, and God’s Green Apples in the near future.

Inspiration: “When I was first thinking about trying to do this for real I sent out emails to a bunch of labels that I looked up to,” says Smith. “Two responses to those emails were hugely impactful for me. One was from Mike Park of Asian Man Records just telling me to do it for the love of music and not really consider the financial aspect. The other was from the drummer for 82 percent of all PGH Punk bands, Timothy Little, of Between the Days Records. He gave me a ton of great advice and really showed me the ropes as much as you can in regards to the DIY spirit and how to professionally release music. It was a huge help!”

Info: facebook.com/lemontreerecs. submissions currently open. Email lemontreerecs@gmail.com with a bio of your band and at least two songs, MP3s preferred

Marie Yovanovitch is sincere, but that doesn’t legitimize Trump’s impeachment

Former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch is no doubt sincere in her belief that President Trump has weakened U.S. relations with Ukraine to the benefit of Russia. But there’s one thing: Ambassadors don’t determine what our international relations are like. The president makes that determination, and his name is Donald Trump.

During her opening testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee on Friday, Yovanovitch talked at great length about her harrowing life as a career foreign service officer, even describing the time she dodged bullets in Eastern Europe. I’m sure she did a fine job, but what did any of it have to do with the price of tea in China?

We’re talking about the way Trump did his job. We’re talking about the way the president of the United States spoke with a foreign leader on the phone and what he wanted out of their relationship.

Yovanovitch suggested that there was corruption at play. But so far, we haven’t seen any proof of Trump attempting to enrich himself or anyone close to him.

A doorbell camera captured a woman screaming for help from a passing car. Police want to find her – CNN

(CNN)A Los Angeles doorbell camera captured the gut-wrenching screams of a woman police say they believe may have been kidnapped, but it did not capture images of what caused her calls for help.

Witnesses in the Leimert Park neighborhood called Los Angeles police Tuesday to report hearing a woman screaming, according to an LAPD news release.
“Help me,” a woman’s voice can be heard screaming in the footage, which shows only a dark street from a porch. “Somebody help me, please.”
A car then races into and out of the frame.
