New California law allows lawsuits against ‘cyber flashers’

SACRAMENTO — Californians who find themselves victims of “cyber flashing” can sue under a new law signed Friday by Gov. Gavin Newsom.The law aims to punish and deter those who send unsolicited sexually explicit messages via text, email, or other electronic means.Recipients have received such unwelcome surprises, often from strangers, through online dating apps and social media platforms, and even via Apple’s AirDrop in public areas, said Democratic Sen. Connie Leyva, who sought the measure.The law will allow recipients to recover at least $1,500 and as much as $30,000 from senders of obscene material who are older than age 18, along with punitive damages and attorney’s fees. They’ll also be able to seek court orders blocking such behavior in the future.”No Californian should ever be sent a sexually explicit picture or video without their consent and, when that happens, it is critical that survivors have a legal path to pursue following this technology-based sexual harassment,” Leyva said in a statement Friday.State lawmakers sent the measure to Newsom without opposition last month. He signed it without comment. Virginia and Texas have previously taken similar actions.

You’ll be able to apply for student loan forgiveness soon: Here’s what we know

(NEXSTAR) – In just a few weeks, millions of Americans will be able to apply for up to $20,000 each in federal student loan forgiveness through the Biden administration. While exact details about the application process haven’t been released, here are three things we know so far. First, it’s important to know whether or not you qualify for this one-time loan forgiveness.

Dave Hyde: It’s Dolphins versus Bills after years, even decades, in the waiting

Pull up a chair and sit on the edge of it, folks. This one could be worth the wait — and, thanks to everyone from Cam Cameron to Steve Ross, it’s been quite a wait. The Miami Dolphins play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in either the biggest game of the NFL weekend or the biggest game at Hard Rock Stadium since it was called Dolphin Stadium three name changes ago. Take your pick for how big this game is. And round up the kids while you’re deciding. It’s time this next generation knew. This is what Dolphins weekend once were always about, if you can remember back to yesteryear when Dan Marino was a player and not a consultant or the 1970s was an era and not a sit-com. Big games. Big rivals. Big hoo-hahs. Big consequences, too. The horse is admittedly ahead of the cart of consequence. It’s just Game 3 in, as linebacker Jerome Baker says, “a marathon of a season” — though the marathon is a sprint if you’ve watched the Dolphins run. But there’s been a generational void of consequence

Antioch police release footage of hectic day where officers killed man after hours-long standoff

ANTIOCH — Police here have released footage showing a 55-year-old resident firing at a police drone, a snipers’ nest where officers shot his gun, and the conclusion of the hours-longs standoff where police shot him 19 times, killing him. The videos, released through a records request by this news organization, depict the lengthy, violent Dec. 10 standoff that began with reports that Guadalupe Zavala was shooting at his neighbors, as well as pinecones and vehicles. One shot barely missed an 84-year-old woman standing next to her Christmas tree, while another whizzed passed the man who lived next door to Zavala. Zavala fired shots at police too, until an Antioch police sniper fired a round into his gun, disabling it. A short time later, Zavala’s home burst into flames, which engulfed most of the residence. Zavala ran outside, holding an object that police mistook for a pistol. When he ran towards a police armored vehicle, two officers shot and killed him. Including the two snipers, four officers fired their duty weapons during the day, but two — including Eric Rombough — reportedly fired all but one

New details unveiled in Rodeo homicide where second would-be victim leapt from second story window to escape gunman

MARTINEZ — A man charged with murdering his half-brother over a family dispute was ordered to stand trial after a preliminary hearing this month, court records show. Joseph Gladney, 23, is accused of murdering 25-year-old Vinson Bragg and threatening to kill another man, who is also Gladney’s half-brother, during the hectic June 14 incident in Rodeo. Gladney pleaded not guilty at a Sept. 20 court hearing; a trial date has not yet been set, records show. Gladney allegedly shot and killed Bragg with a short barrel rifle at a home on the 1200 block of Mariposa Street in Rodeo. He then went upstairs and threatened to shoot the second victim, who leapt from the second story to escape Gladney. The man was hospitalized with injuries from the fall, police said. Gladney was arrested later that day when a resident on the 300 block of Vallejo Avenue reported someone was hiding on the property. Police allegedly found him hiding a crawlspace on the property.

What to know before San Jose State’s home game against Western Michigan

San Jose State vs. Western Michigan Records: SJSU (1-1, 0-0 Mountain West); Western Michigan (1-2, 1-0 Mid-American) Kickoff: 7:30 p.m., CEFCU Stadium Television: CBS Sports Network Radio: KTRB (860 AM) Series history: The Spartans lost the only meeting between the schools, 23-3 last season in Kalamazoo. Storylines: Last season’s loss to the Broncos was particularly painful because quarterback Nick Starkel, who had the Spartans off to a 2-1 start, was injured during the game, significantly altering the trajectory of SJSU’s season. Starkel missed the next five games and wasn’t 100 percent when he returned. SJSU ended the season losing six of its final nine games, starting with Western Michigan. … Both mid-major programs are coming off encouraging showings against Power Five teams. The Spartans led Auburn at halftime on the road in a 24-16 loss two weeks ago; Western Michigan trailed No. 24 Pittsburg by a touchdown in the fourth quarter in their 34-13 home loss last week.  …  SJSU should be slightly fresher than the Broncos — the Spartans are coming off a bye. The Broncos opened the season at Michigan State and won

Is Dolphins vs. Bills a big game? Yes, coach Mike McDaniel says

There’s no wrong answer. That’s the first thing you need to know when asking the Miami Dolphins whether Sunday’s game against Buffalo is a big game. It’s all about personal perspective. It’s interesting to note, however, Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel embraces the challenge of his head-turning Dolphins (2-0) hosting the mighty Bills (2-0) at Hard Rock Stadium. McDaniel said he’d even tell his team not to hide from using this game as a measuring stick. “I think you embrace the fact that they’re a good football team and that there’s one way to be put in the category of good football teams — you beat good football teams,” he said. Some of McDaniel’s players have opted for the businesslike it’s-just-one-game-among-17 games approach. “They’re just another team on our schedule,” veteran linebacker Melvin Ingram said. The level-headed approach has backing among players. “They’re all big,” defensive tackle Christian Wilkins said. “You’ve got to approach it the same way each week because once you start playing that inconsistency game in the NFL, you get showed up for sure.” McDaniel has a different method. He chooses to speak

Mosquito Fire remains at 76,781 acres and is 60% contained

PLACER COUNTY – The Mosquito Fire, which started on September 6, remains at 76,781 acres and 60 percent containment, as of Saturday morning. There are 1,805 personnel fighting the fire.Crews are anticipating warm seasonal temperatures over the net few days, returning fuels to critically dry conditions with the potential to rekindle and create flareups, they said.Large fire growth is not expected as containment lines have been holding along most perimeters.The fire began next to the Oxbow Reservoir in Placer County and quickly spread in dense brush and steep terrain. Fire officials say 78 structures have been destroyed and 13 structures have been damaged.The cause of the fire is under investigation; however, PG&E says an electrical fault was recorded near where the fire began, at around the same time it started. The company also noted that they hadn’t seen any damage or abnormal conditions at the pole. There wasn’t any vegetation or tree found on the line. Advancement of the fire was slowed after the recent storm brought four days of rain and cooler temperatures to the fire area. But with temperatures increasing and vegetation continuing to dry, the
