After High-Profile Attacks, Houses Of Worship Struggle With Security

DETROIT (AP) — A rabbi who packs a gun. A church installing security cameras. A police car protecting a mosque. Houses of worship have traditionally been places of refuge where strangers are welcome. But high-profile attacks in recent years on an African-American church in Charleston, a synagogue in Pittsburgh and now mosques in New Zealand have made many worshippers and their prayer leaders rethink how protected sanctuaries really are. “People are fearful for their lives, for their houses of...

How a high-flying media executive with a $1 million annual paycheck and big plans to revamp the LA Times found himself out of a job after 5 months

A year ago, Los Angeles Times publisher and CEO Ross Levinsohn was put on unpaid leave after the publication of an NPR article accusing him of "frat-house behavior" earlier in his career. He'd been hired to turn around one of the US's leading daily newspapers, but after he left that plan was abandoned and the paper sold. His story combines a few of the big media stories of the past two years: the decline of traditional news organizations, the unionization of a newsroom, and the fallout from #M...

The window to apply for ownership, however, is slim.   The latest Ford GT hasn’t even hit the secondary market, and Dearborn is already messing with it, making it lighter, faster, and just plain sharper all the way around. Sure, it’s not perfect (what car is?) but with these updates, Ford edges (no pun intended) their GT a little bit closer to perfection. Ford make...

Dearborn is going Hollywood with the Ford Edge ST Camera Car. Pursuit Systems helped modify the Edge ST for high-speed action footage. Quick question: Say you need to film a car scene in a movie or a TV show, how do you do it? There’s a number of tricks Hollywood can pull, but if you want to shoot an actual car, driving down an actual road, you have to use something known as a “camera car.” These are custom-built rigs that run all the way from simple to complex. However, this Ford Edge ST is, ...
