Judge OKs 1st-degree murder case in sleeping western Pa. woman's death
GREENSBURG, Pa. - A judge has ruled that prosecutors will be allowed to seek a first-degree murder conviction against a man accused of killing a sleeping woman by firing several shots into a western Pennsylvania home in the mistaken belief that someone inside was part of a botched drug deal.Nathan Quidetto, 23, of Unity, is charged in Westmoreland County with criminal homicide, reckless endangerment and weapons offenses in the July 2020 death of 52-year-old Tracy Marie Squib.State police allege that Quidetto wanted to scare someone involved in the botched drug deal but drove to the wrong house — "not even close to being at the right house," a police spokesman said — and fired several shots at the home around 4 a.m., hitting Squib, who was sleeping inside along with her husband and two children.Defense attorney Emily Smarto argued there was no evidence that Quidetto intended to kill Squib and argued that the first-degree murder count should be dismissed, but the Tribune-Review reports that the judge disagreed.Common Pleas Court Judge Tim Krieger said defendants can be convicted of murder "where the commonwealth proves that the only difference between the intended result and the actual result is the person harmed."Krieger also rejected a separate defense attempt to bar prosecutors from using Quidetto’s statements to investigators.

Watch a wind turbine disintegrate in Texas after a lightning strike
CROWELL, Texas - A North Texas wind farm is one turbine down thanks to what officials believe was a devastating lightning strike to one of the massive structures on Friday afternoon.Videos from witnesses and firefighters showed the wind turbine generator ablaze and disintegrate in the sky over Crowell, Texas.Doppler radar indicated there was plenty of lightning strikes around the Foard City wind facility before firefighters received the call about the high-altitude fire.Lightning struck a wind turbine on Friday afternoon in Crowell, Texas.HOW TO WATCH FOX WEATHER ON TVCrews with the Crowell Volunteer Fire Department responded, but Fire Chief Perry Shaw said there was little his firefighters could do to put the fire out."We’re not equipped to handle that kind of fire. Nobody in the area really is to speak of," Shaw said.The fire chief estimated there were 800 gallons of oil in the gearbox and around 1,300 gallons of mineral oil in the ground-level transformer, which caused the smoke to appear dark black in the sky.Firefighters said they let the fire in the wind turbine burn itself out.The facility’s operator, Innergex Renewable Energy, said all personnel at the more than 31,000-acre complex are safe, and the fire only impacted one of its energy turbines.The Foard City wind farm has around 139 GE turbines and was commissioned in September 2019.Shaw said he has seen plenty of videos of turbine fires, but this is the first time he recalled an incident involving one in Crowell.WIND ENERGY BECOMES SECOND-LARGEST SOURCE OF US POWER FOR 1 DAY IN MARCH"We’ve done training with the wind farm company, and they are not safe to approach during that scenario.

'Ball is in your corner': Family accusing Sesame Place of discrimination calls on Sea World to take action
NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. - A week after a controversial video of an incident at Sesame Place went viral, the family is calling on its parent company Sea World to take action.Jodi Brown posted the video of her daughter Skylar Brown, 6, and niece Nylah Brown, 6, being ignored by the character Rosita during a parade at the theme park. The video, which has been viewed more than 750,000 times, sparked national outrage and prompted celebrities and public figures to call on Sesame Place for answers.Sesame Place has issued three apologies, calling the incident "unacceptable" and saying it would conduct training for employees to deliver a more "inclusive, equitable and entertaining experience."More families have since come forward with allegations and videos alleging similar experiences at the park. A new video shared Friday appears to show Rosita interacting with a white child after ignoring Skylar and Nylah. The video also allegedly contradicts Sesame Place's claim that the character was motioning "No" to another family.RELATED HEADLINESIn a second press conference Saturday, attorney B'Ivory Lamarr stood alongside attorney Ben Crump, Jodi Brown and both children, who he called the "faces of America as it stands against racism."Crump, a civil rights and personal injury attorney, says they are demanding action from Sea World, telling the parent company, "The ball is in your corner.""We will see if Sea World will do the right thing: danger or opportunity," he said.

Protestors were unwilling to vacate premises: Police Spokesperson
COLOMBO (News 1st); Speaking at a special press briefing today, the Police media Spokesman, SSP Nihal Thalduwa said, the Police had been operating with restraint in the past couple of months, allowing the people to engage in peaceful protest.Displaying several videos circulated in social media, where police officers duties were apparently obstructed by the protestors, the spokesman said, the police are engaged in maintaining peace and the rule of law, and anyone who obstructs that duty is not upholding the law.The press briefing was held to address the crackdown on the GotaGoGama protest site, in the early hours of the 22nd of July.He added, the removing of tents and structures inside a 50m radius of the SWRD Bandaranaike statue at Galle face, was conducted since protecting state property and the idol of a significant personality in Sri Lankan history, is the duty of the Police.The spokesman further stated, the protestors acted aggressively in previous occasions when the Police requested them to vacate state buildings, and this lead to the Police not being able to trust the words and promises of the protestors.SSP Thalduwa also emphasized that NOBODY will be allowed to undermine and humiliate the Police, Tri-forces and the Rule of Law in the future.Mentioning that the citizens’ respect for Rule of Law lessened as a result, the Police Spokesperson said that the Police did not take any steps to disrupt the ongoing protests at Galle Face at that time, despite the disturbances caused due to loud noises and bright lights.However, as the protests progressed, it became almost impossible for Police officers to even carry out their duties at the protest sites, the Spokesperson said.
