Coronavirus threat and stay-at-home order: Police say they want compliance, not arrests

On Thursday night, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an order instructing all Californians to stay home in hopes it’ll help mitigate the coronavirus spread. “People will ask: ‘Well, how will you enforce?’” the Governor pondered during his announcement. In general, agencies are saying they are looking more for compliance than to make arrests. The order was far-reaching, though it exempted businesses and services deemed essential such as grocery stories, pharmacies and government offices. But by and la...

New way of building bridges could be faster, cheaper, better

You've probably seen this triangle before: Fast, Cheap, Good -- Pick Two. Here's a new bridge-building technique from Austria that seems to allow the customer to get a bridge that's faster, cheaper, better than traditional bridges. From Popular Mechanics: The umbrella method is a completely new way to construct a static final bridge. This TU Wien team first worked on the idea in 2006, and it’s been experimenting and fine tuning since then. Instead of traditional kinds of bridge building—i.e. ...

New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern Faces Tough Campaign as She Picks Date for New Election

(WELLINGTON, New Zealand) — Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern may be lauded around the world as a liberal icon but whether she can translate that into a reelection victory in September remains uncertain. Ardern on Tuesday announced the general elections would be held on Sept. 19. She is seeking a second term in office and is expected to face tough competition from conservative challenger Simon Bridges. Voters will also decide on two contentious social issues in referendums on the same date: whe...

Weekend Box Office: ‘Frozen 2’ is a Huge Hit (Bet You Didn’t See That One Coming!)

Finally: Disney can breathe a sigh of relief knowing they’ve scored a box office win. But seriously, folks: Frozen 2 is a smash hit. The long-awaited sequel to the 2013 animated film debuted over the weekend, and hauled in $350 million globally. That includes a $127 million domestic intake, which some are calling the biggest animated opening ever – but that’s not quite correct. Disney’s recent Lion King reboot was also fully animated, and had a $191 million opening weekend. Still, The Lion King...

’21 Bridges’ Review: Chadwick Boseman Shuts Down Manhattan in This Bland, Predictable Thriller

Hollywood doesn’t pump-out many non-franchise action-thrillers these days, so perhaps we should be thankful for 21 Bridges. And perhaps that this movie hails from producers The Russo Brothers, a duo responsible for so many blockbuster franchise movies, is a good sign. But lordy, does the end result have to be so lifeless? 21 Bridges is a yawn-inducing long night’s journey into day, where a supposedly hotshot detective doesn’t pick up on big twists we spot a mile away, and where characters fire ...

Miles Bridges relishes chance to face Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James

LOS ANGELES — Miles Bridges had a couple of important business meetings lined up on this trip to L.A.: back-to-back matchups with two of the game’s greats. The Charlotte Hornets’ promising second-year forward lined up against LeBron James on Sunday evening and then turned right around for an appointment with Kawhi Leonard on Monday. Challenging work, to be sure, but the 21-year-old relished the task, he said. “It’s the NBA, it’s what I signed up for,” Bridges said. “It’s fun for me, I like match...

Sad news: truck-eating bridge to be raised this week

The 11'8" bridge in Durham, N.C., which has brought so much misery to unobservant truck drivers and so much joy to the internet, will be raised to 12'4" this week. Is nothing sacred in the age of Trump? On October 26, I spent the afternoon at the 11foot8 bridge as the crew was working on preparing the structure for raising it next week. They cut off the rusty steel supports of the old walkway on the southern side of the trestle, and they removed the battered, bent crash beam that was the cano...

Best bridges in the United States

Bridges seem to captivate people more than any other structures, not only as engineering marvels that connect previously separated areas but also as local icons that become unmistakable parts of a city. They’re places to relax, places to hone your photography skills, and sometimes places to beat your head against the steering wheel when stuck in traffic. But they always bring a sense of wonder and a little bit of closeness to the water. So it’s no wonder that bridges are among the most photog...

Which bridge in your state is the most dangerous?

America's infrastructure is close to hitting rock bottom.
