Blue Ridge fire
About 90,000 people were evacuated

Firefighters are struggling to contain wildfires, fanned by hot desert winds, that forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of Orange County residents.

Two fires broke out in Southern California on Monday, critically wounding two firefighters and leading to 90,000 evacuations.

The larger blaze, the Silverado fire, had grown to more than 12,000 acres by noon on Tuesday local time.

A utility company said the fire may have been started by its equipment.

A spokesman for Southern California Edison said: “It appears that a lashing wire attached to a telecommunications line may have contacted SCE’s power line above it, possibly starting the fire.”

SCE is now investigating the incident, he added, and as a precautionary measure the company cut power to almost 19,000 homes and businesses.

Two firefighters are critically wounded

The Silverado fire, in the foothills of Irvine, quickly spread after being fanned by strong winds and dry conditions.

More than 750 firefighters with 14 helicopters fought the fire, but only managed to contain 5% of it.

The two firefighters, aged 31 and 26, who were critically injured fighting the blaze suffered second and third-degree burns over much of their bodies, said the Orange County Fire Authority.

The other fire, dubbed the Blue Ridge fire, broke out near Yorba Linda and forced the evacuation of 8,700 households there, in Chino Hills and in Brea.

Hundreds of firefighters with over a dozen helicopters have been fighting the fires

The Blue Ridge fire had burned through more than 15,200 acres by Tuesday morning.

The causes of California’s devastating wildfires have become a political battleground.

State Governor Gavin Newsom has blamed climate change while President Donald Trump has instead pointed to land management practices as the key driver.

An analysis by scientists, published last month, found an “unequivocal and pervasive” role for climate change in driving the scale and impact of wildfires in California.

Live Updates –To Do Politics or Not Do Politics? Tech Start-Ups Are Divided https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-to-do-politics-or-not-do-politics-tech-start-ups-are-divided/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-to-do-politics-or-not-do-politics-tech-start-ups-are-divided/#respond Wed, 28 Oct 2020 09:27:49 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-to-do-politics-or-not-do-politics-tech-start-ups-are-divided/ To Do Politics or Not Do Politics? Tech Start-Ups Are Divided

The start-up culture wars are also evident on Clubhouse, where people join rooms and chat with one another. The app has been a popular place for investors such as Marc Andreessen and other techies to hang out in the pandemic. (Mr. Andreessen’s venture firm, Andreessen Horowitz, has invested in Clubhouse, Coinbase and Soylent.)

On Oct. 6, Mr. Andreessen started a Clubhouse room called “Holding Space for Karens,” which describes having empathy for “Karens,” a slang term for a pushy privileged woman. Another group, “Holding Space for Marc Andreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessen,” soon popped up. There, people discussed their disappointment with the Karen discussion and other instances when, they said, Clubhouse was hostile to people of color.

Mr. Andreessen and others later started a Clubhouse room called “Silence,” where no one spoke. Andreessen Horowitz declined to comment.

At a “town hall” inside the app on Sunday, Clubhouse’s founders, Paul Davison and Rohan Seth, were asked about Coinbase’s and Expensify’s political statements and where Clubhouse stood. They said the company was still deciding how Clubhouse would publicly back social causes and felt the platform should allow for multiple points of view, a spokeswoman said. She declined to comment further.

Yet even those wishing to stay out of politics are finding it hard to avoid. On Saturday, Mr. Armstrong shared Mr. Rhinehart’s blog post endorsing Mr. West on Twitter. “Epic,” tweeted Mr. Armstrong.

Several users pointed out the hypocrisy in Mr. Armstrong’s sharing something political after telling employees to abstain. One of his employees, Jesse Pollak, wrote that Mr. Armstrong had shared something with “a large number of inaccuracies, conspiracy theories, and misplaced assumptions.”

Soon after, Mr. Pollak and Mr. Armstrong deleted their tweets.

Live Update-Philadelphia rocked by fresh unrest after police shooting https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-philadelphia-rocked-by-fresh-unrest-after-police-shooting/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-philadelphia-rocked-by-fresh-unrest-after-police-shooting/#respond Wed, 28 Oct 2020 09:08:18 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-philadelphia-rocked-by-fresh-unrest-after-police-shooting/ Philadelphia rocked by fresh unrest after police shooting

Hundreds of protesters in Philadelphia have marched through the city for a second night, demanding racial justice after police fatally shot a black man.

The family of Walter Wallace, 27, say he was suffering a mental health crisis when officers opened fire on him.

Police say they shot him because he wouldn’t drop a knife he was holding.

Police reinforcements as well as the National Guard have been deployed. Officials say 30 officers were hurt during the first night of clashes.

The city’s police have also accused protesters of looting and ransacking businesses during the unrest.

Mr Wallace had bipolar disorder, and his wife told officers this before they shot him, a lawyer representing his family said.

What’s the situation in Philadelphia?

On Tuesday night, the marches began peacefully but became more confrontational as the evening drew on.

Officers in riot gear arrived in squad cars, on bicycles and on buses, and used their bikes to shove protesters back from barricade lines.

Police also warned residents to stay away from the riverfront Port Richmond district as widespread looting occurred.

The Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management advised residents across a swathe of the city to stay indoors because of “widespread demonstrations that have turned violent”.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, protesters tried to erect makeshift barricades using bins. Police used pepper spray and batons after saying they were attacked by demonstrators.

Shops around the city had closed early and constructed barricades on Tuesday.

Residents found pharmacies shuttered and were unable to get medicine, according to CBS News, the BBC’s partner in the US.

What have city officials been saying?

Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, has said the video of Monday’s fatal police shooting “presents difficult questions that must be answered”.

The mayor did not elaborate, but said he was looking forward “to a speedy and transparent resolution for the sake of Mr Wallace, his family, the officers, and for Philadelphia”.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said she had visited the scene and felt the “anger of the community”.

“We anticipate the chance of additional incidents of civil unrest,” she said at a news conference earlier on Tuesday. “And as such, we will be taking additional steps to ensure order. We will increase our officer presence around the city at key locations.”

Large protests broke out in Philadelphia earlier this year following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Footage showed white police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on the black man’s neck, while he repeatedly said he was unable to breathe.

Floyd’s death sparked protests around the world against racism and police brutality.

What happened on Monday night?

Over 300 people people took to the streets to protest against the shooting of Mr Wallace, and 91 were arrested.

The protests, which continued into the early hours of Tuesday, turned violent at times.

Images from the scene showed a police vehicle set on fire. A number of businesses and shops were looted.

Most of the injured police officers were struck by objects such as bricks and other projectiles, authorities said.

One officer was in hospital with a broken leg and other injuries after being struck by a pickup truck.

What do we know about the shooting?

Police said it happened at about 16:00 (20:00 GMT) on Monday, when two officers responded to a report of a man with a weapon in the neighbourhood of Cobbs Creek in West Philadelphia.

Police spokeswoman Tanya Little told AP news agency that a man, later identified as Mr Wallace, was holding a knife when the officers approached, and instead of following orders to drop the weapon he “advanced towards them”.

Both officers fired “several times”, hitting Mr Wallace in the shoulder and chest, she said.

One of the officers drove him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to Ms Little.

Footage shared on social media shows two officers pointing their guns at Mr Wallace as he walks towards them. The officers back away from him and shout at him to put the knife down.

Shots are then fired and Mr Wallace is seen lying on the street.

Mr Wallace’s father told the Philadelphia Inquirer that his son had mental health issues and was on medication.

“Why didn’t they use a Taser?” he asked.

At Tuesday’s press conference, officials said the officers both fired seven shots each. The officers, who have not been named, were wearing body cameras and did not carry stun guns.

Meanwhile, Mr Wallace’s family lawyer said that they had called for an ambulance – not police – to help deal with Walter Wallace’s mental issues.

Instead, two police officers arrived, lawyer Shaka Johnson was quoted as saying by the Inquirer. Mr Wallace’s pregnant wife told them her husband had bipolar disorder and was in crisis.

Reacting to the shooting, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris said in a statement: “Our hearts are broken for the family of Walter Wallace Jr, and for all those suffering the emotional weight of learning about another Black life in America lost. We cannot accept that in this country a mental health crisis ends in death.”

Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania, a state critical to next week’s presidential election.

Live Update-Cause of Southern California fire that forced thousands to evacuate may be ‘lashing wire’ https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-cause-of-southern-california-fire-that-forced-thousands-to-evacuate-may-be-lashing-wire/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-cause-of-southern-california-fire-that-forced-thousands-to-evacuate-may-be-lashing-wire/#respond Wed, 28 Oct 2020 08:11:14 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-cause-of-southern-california-fire-that-forced-thousands-to-evacuate-may-be-lashing-wire/ Cause of Southern California fire that forced thousands to evacuate may be ‘lashing wire’

An investigation is underway into a lashing wire that may have caused the Silverado Fire, a blaze that has forced tens of thousands of California residents to evacuate as it grows.

Southern California Edison is working with the Orange County Fire Authority to find the source of the more than 12,000-acre wildfire, a spokesperson told NBC News in a statement on Tuesday. Two firefighters were critically injured in the fight to contain the inferno in and around the community of Irvine.

Over 75,000 people were under evacuation orders due to the Silverado Fire as of Tuesday morning, the Orange County Fire authority announced.

Southern California Edison sent a letter late Monday to the California Public Utilities Commission acknowledging its electrical facilities are in the area where the Silverado fire broke out. But it said there was “no indication of any circuit activity prior to the report time of the fire” or downed conductors.

“However, it appears that a lashing wire that was attached to an underbuilt telecommunication line … may have resulted in the ignition of the fire,” the letter said.

The Silverado Fire was only 5 percent contained as of Tuesday afternoon.

Powerful winds in and around the area, southeast of Los Angeles, have not only helped the flames grow exponentially but also prevented aircrafts from dropping retardant and water on the fire, Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennessy said Monday.

Five firefighters have been injured in the battle against the Orange County blazes, Fennessy told reporters on Tuesday. Three sustained minor injuries and were treated and released.

But two other firefighters, ages 26 and 31, remain in critical condition after being intubated on Monday. Fennessy said he personally hired both firefighters within the past year and has met with their parents since their injury.

“It’s tough for any firefighter, certainly any fire chief, to feel this helpless when you’ve got part of our fire family fighting for their lives,” Fennessy said. “I’m confident that they’re going to do all they can to fight through this. This is just who they are.”

Officials said Monday that the men suffered second- and third-degree burns across 65 percent and 50 percent of their bodies.

Gusts in Orange County were recorded at 88 mph, California Gov. Gavon Newsom said Tuesday, but authorities are hopeful that waning winds will help bring in the needed air support as firefighters battle on the ground.

“Broadly, we will experience a reduction in the winds between now and Thursday, but the most extreme wind events we believe will present themselves later today in the evening,” Newsom said. “And most, hopefully, are behind us.”

The governor said that Southern California will be under a red flag warning until at least 11 p.m. Tuesday night as the wind and dry weather conditions continue to put the state at risk. There have been 42 initial fire starts within the last 24 hours, Newsom said.

“Meaning 42 wildfires had ignited in the last 24 hours,” Newsom said Tuesday. “It’s an extraordinary testament to (state firefighters) that you don’t know about most of those — they’ve suppressed the vast majority of those.”

Orange County is also battling the Blue Ridge Fire, another blaze that started Monday and has grown to approximately 15,200 acres with 0 percent containment with 10 homes damaged. The wildfire has affected 2,500 houses and 10,000 people in Yorba Linda under evacuation orders, the Orange County Fire Authority announced on Tuesday.

Yorba Linda is a suburb located about 37 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles and home to the The Richard Nixon Library & Museum. The former president was born and buried in Yorba Linda.

Orange County officials are transitioning management of both fires to the state officials with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire. More than 1,800 firefighters and 14 helicopters are being utilized across the county to fight both the Blue Ridge and Silverado Fires, Fennessy said Tuesday, as additional resources have been given to the county.

Assuming the conditions continue to settle in the Irvine area, authorities expect to repopulate the “majority” of residents who have been evacuated since Monday.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have won their first World Series in 32 years, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 to secure a 4-2 win in the best-of-seven championship.

Corey Seager gave LA the lead and Mookie Betts hit a home run in the eighth inning to seal victory.

Seager was later named named the series’ Most Valuable Player.

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was withdrawn midway through the game after it was confirmed he had tested positive for Covid-19.

“Thanks to everyone reaching out,” Turner said on Twitterexternal-link. “I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can possibly imagine.

“Can’t believe I couldn’t be out there to celebrate with my guys. So proud of this team and unbelievably happy for the city of LA.”

It was the Dodgers’ third World Series appearance in four years – they were beaten by the Houston Astros in 2017 and the Boston Red Sox in 2018.

“This is surreal,” said catcher Austin Barnes. “We’ve had our hearts broken so many times and this group has worked so hard. There’s a ton of emotion.”

The Rays, looking to win the World Series for the first time, could not take advantage of a dominant performance from starting pitcher Blake Snell, who gave up just two hits and no runs with nine strikeouts, including Betts and Seager twice.

However, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash decided to pull Snell in the sixth inning as he did not want him to face the dangerous Betts and Seager for a third time.

The Rays were up 1-0 at that stage thanks to a Randy Arozarena home run, but Snell’s departure saw the momentum shift, with Barnes scoring from a wild pitch by Snell’s replacement Nick Anderson to level the game.

Seager then hit a ground ball to first, with Betts diving to beat the throw home and put the Dodgers 2-1 ahead, with his homer sealing victory.

Around 11,000 fans were allowed into the 48,000-capacity Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, the first neutral venue to host the World Series, following a shortened season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
