Suspect Sought in Coachella Shooting That Left Man Injured

Authorities Monday were searching for the suspect who opened fire in the parking lot of a Coachella shopping center, injuring a person. The shooting happened at about 1 a.m. Monday in the parking lot in front of Taqueria Monte Alban in the 49300 block of Grapefruit Boulevard, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. When first responders arrived at the location, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound, sheriff’s officials said. The victim was taken to a hospital but his condition was not immediately available. Authorities did not provide a suspect description or motive, and the investigation is ongoing.

Some of his followers are being sought by the FBI. It’s not stopping the leader of the Oath Keepers.

The FBI is investigating some of his followers. Others are already in custody and facing decades in prison if convicted of federal charges connected to the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol. But the national leader of the extremist Oath Keepers group is carrying on as before. He might even be emboldened. “You gotta declare this regime to be illegitimate,” Stewart Rhodes said on Infowars on January 30 – 24 days after the riot amid the violence that left five dead and delayed the certification of President Joe Biden’s election win. “You gotta to declare everything that comes out of King Biden’s mouth as illegitimate — null and void from the inception because he is not a legitimate president.” Rhodes is still peddling the falsehood that the election was illegitimate. He says Biden’s administration and supporters in Congress should be seen as an occupying enemy force and issues warnings about what he claims are 365 million armed patriots ready to “rise up.” “There is going to be resistance. The only question is what will be the spark,” Rhodes said in a January 30 interview on Infowars, a media organization that is one of the leading…

¿Por qué esta será la silla de avión más popular en 2021?

(CNN) –– Clase económica prémium. Estas palabras pueden parecer una combinación extraña en términos de viajes aéreos, pues es poco común encontrar una aerolínea en la que los asientos económicos se sientan prémium. Pero estas sillas, entre la clase turista y la ejecutiva en vuelos internacionales, estaban incluso antes del covid-19. Y mientras todos comenzamos a viajar nuevamente en 2021, se convertirán en un elemento obligatorio para muchos pasajeros. ¿Por qué la clase económica prémium? Es una combinación de factores. Primero, la crisis económica significa que los viajeros de clase ejecutiva «bajarán de categoría» a una clase económica prémium. Ya sean personas que deben trasladarse por trabajo y cuyas políticas de viaje se han endurecido, o viajeros de lujo y por placer que sienten la presión sobre su presupuesto, pero no les apetece sentirla también en sus rodillas o codos durante los vuelos. Presidente ejecutivo de Delta critica propuesta de Biden para exigir pruebas de covid-19 a viajeros nacionales En segundo lugar, los viajeros frecuentes tendrán millas para gastar después de un año de viajes reducidos. Y con esas políticas de viaje estrictas que a…

Frozen wind turbines contribute to rolling power blackouts across Texas

Some of the warmest places in Texas, where rolling power outages are occurring across the chilly state, are inside cars and trucks parked in the driveway of a home without electricity. Chey Louis of Irving told CNN his family in Grand Prairie had planned a small socially distanced gathering to celebrate his younger brother’s birthday. But instead of celebrating, they have spent the day trying to stay warm. “They have been in the car all day with the heater on,” he said. “The inside of their home has dropped below 40 degrees.” Rolling power blackouts were ordered across Texas on Monday as a winter storm and frigid temperatures gripped the state and knocked out service to more than 3.8 million customers. The rotating outages could continue until the state’s weather emergency ends, according to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), a major grid operator that controls about 90% of the state’s electric load. Gov. Gregg Abbott said in a Twitter post that the state’s power grid has not been compromised. “The ability of some companies that generate the power has been frozen. This includes the natural gas & coal generators,” Abbott…

It happened off Desert Horizons Drive and Highway 111, still many questions to be answered as to what went on. “One of the drivers exited his vehicle, approached the second driver with a handgun, pointed at the driver, and asked him if he wanted to die?

Chris Harrison controversy puts ‘Bachelor’ race issues back in the spotlight

Chris Harrison’s announcement that he would step aside as the host of “The Bachelor” for an undetermined length of time following controversial remarks he made has reignited conversation about the reality franchise’s problematic history regarding issues of race and diversity. Harrison was being interviewed by Rachel Lindsay, a current Extra host and former star of 2017’s “The Bachelorette,” when he defended a current contestant who was reportedly photographed at an antebellum plantation-themed fraternity formal in 2018. Harrison has since apologized, writing on his Instagram that he was “deeply remorseful” for the pain and damage his “ignorance” had brought to his “friends, colleagues and strangers alike,” before announcing he would take a “period of time” away from his hosting duties during this “historic season” of “The Bachelor,” which features the show’s first Black lead, Matt James. The franchise, which debuted in 2002, did not cast a person of color as its lead until Lindsay, who is Black. Now, she has said she no longer wants to be associated with the series. “I’m exhausted. I have truly had enough,” Lindsay said on the latest episode of her Higher Learning podcast…
