Uber driver’s window is shot out on 10 Freeway in San Bernardino while passengers were in car

Authorities are investigating after an Uber driver reported his vehicle was shot at on the 10 Freeway in San Bernardino early Tuesday morning. The driver had picked up two passengers in San Bernardino and was westbound on the 10 Freeway at Baldwin Park when someone fired at the vehicle’s rear driver-side window, California Highway Patrol Officer Kimbal said. The window was shattered, but no injuries were reported. The driver kept going to his destination, Pomona, and dropped off the passengers before driving back to the westbound 10 Freeway in Baldwin Park, where the driver called to report the incident, officials said. CHP officers arrived at the scene around 2:40 a.m. and were investigating the incident. A vehicle was seen being towed away from the freeway after CHP officers examined it. Officials did not have information on who may have opened fire on the vehicle, and no further details were immediately available.

LAUSD sees its steepest enrollment decline in 20 years, dropping by more than 27,000 students

Enrollment in the Los Angeles Unified School District has dropped by more than 27,000 students since last year, a decline of close to 6% — a much steeper slide than in any recent year. The comparison is based on an annual count referred to as “norm day,” the fifth Friday of every new school year, Sept. 17 this year. Last year’s enrollment total for pre-school through 12th grade was 466,229. This year’s figure for that same date is 439,013, according to data provided by L.A. Unified that will be presented to the school board Tuesday. Other data released by L.A. Unified indicates other potential concerns. The district estimates that between 70% and 80% of the school staff are on target to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the district’s deadline of Oct. 15, indicating that thousands of employees face termination, which would exacerbate another problem: more than 2,000 unfilled jobs. “We’re still seeing the impact of COVID,” said Veronica Arreguin, the district’s chief strategy officer, about the enrollment decline. Arreguin also noted that much of the decline was expected, in line with many years of…

49ers mailbag: How long is Jimmy Garoppolo’s leash and who is the life of the party?

Long story short, here my 49ers’ mailbag after a prime-time loss to Green Bay and with NFC West rival Seattle coming to town next: How long/short is Jimmy G’s leash? (@nick_james27) It’s been long enough through three games to keep Trey Lance on the sideline for all but seven snaps. I don’t anticipate Kyle Shanahan benching Jimmy Garoppolo or swapping him out an entire series or two, not when Garoppolo can still engineer crunch-time touchdown drives. That said, would anyone really be shocked if Shanahan just pulled the trigger any day, any week, any month? Check back after the next loss, or more uninspiring offense, or during the Week 6 bye if the 49ers are 3-2. Why is this loss Jimmy’s fault and no one else’s? Clearly that’s what fans think. (@fperez2231) Because he wasn’t perfect (two turnovers). Because he wasn’t throwing darts like Aaron Rodgers to Davante Adams. Because Trey Lance hasn’t had a chance to be blamed, which is to say that the 49ers’ quarterback is and forever will be the lightning rod for criticism (and praise). Speaking of, Garoppolo is winning over fans off…

What San Jose Sharks fans attending Tuesday’s game need to know

SAN JOSE – The Sharks’ home contest against the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday will mark the first time the NHL team has been allowed to host a game without capacity restrictions at SAP Center in over 18 months. A Sharks spokesman said Monday afternoon that although it is difficult to predict how many spectators would be in the building, the team as of that point had issued about 10,000 tickets for the game. The building’s seating capacity for hockey games is 17,562. The last time the Sharks played a home game without capacity restrictions was March 8, 2020, when the team announced of crowd of 14,694 for a game with the Colorado Avalanche. The next day, Santa Clara County officials announced a ban on all mass gatherings in the county. Last season, starting April 26, the Sharks allowed a few hundred fans in attendance for their final seven home games. Earlier that month, the California Department of Public Health announced it would allow indoor venues — including sports arenas — to host events with a limited amount of spectators. At that time, the three…

What to do when you have too many of these things | Everyday Cheapskate

Before we get going here, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have an inner hoarder who puts up quite a fuss from time to time. I’ve managed to tame her, but now and again, she gets out. Before I know it, I have 48 boxes of borax on my storage shelves or 9,082 skeins of yarn in my stash. Just kidding — sort of. Just justification is always, “Just in case we go through a season of scarcity,” right? I see some heads nodding in full understanding. Look — excessive accumulation is not always a sign of a disorder. Having a few things extra of those you’ll need in the future is actually the sign of a wise person. It’s a great way to save money when those things are on sale for say, 50% off. But should this accumulation thing get out of hand, it’s good to know how to reasonably get rid of the following given as examples: BOOKS I totally understand how this happens. I am a writer, but not much of a reader. I reference and skim nonfiction works,…

Power cuts in China may foreshadow Christmas shopping shortages in U.S.

Global shoppers face possible shortages of smartphones and other goods ahead of Christmas after power cuts to meet official energy use targets forced Chinese factories to shut down and left some households in the dark. In the northeastern city of Liaoyang, 23 people were hospitalized with gas poisoning after ventilation in a metal casting factory was shut off following a power outage, according to state broadcaster CCTV. No deaths were reported. Factories were idled to avoid exceeding limits on energy use imposed by Beijing to promote efficiency. Economists and an environmental group say manufacturers used up this year’s quota faster than planned as export demand rebounded from the coronavirus pandemic. A components supplier for Apple Inc.’s iPhones said it suspended production at a factory west of Shanghai under orders from local authorities. The disruption to China’s vast manufacturing industries during one of their busiest seasons reflects the ruling Communist Party’s struggle to balance economic growth with efforts to rein in pollution and emissions of climate-changing gases. “Beijing’s unprecedented resolve in enforcing energy consumption limits could result in long-term benefits, but the short-term economic costs are…
