Israeli forces surround a hospital they say is also a command center for Hamas. Also, the Supreme Court adopts a code of ethics after recent controversy, but critics say it’s not enough. All that and all that matters in today’s Eye Opener.
Iceland has declared a state of emergency and evacuated thousands of citizens in anticipation of an imminent volcanic eruption. The Reykjanes peninsula region has experienced hundreds of earthquakes and tremors in recent days. Seismologists warn that means an eruption is very likely. CBS News’ Chris Livesay reports.
President Biden said Monday that Al Shifa Hospital, the largest in Gaza, must be protected amid Israeli claims that a Hamas command complex sits below the medical complex. Meanwhile, the remains of five American service members, who are the first U.S. military deaths related to the Israel-Hamas war, returned to U.S. soil after they were killed in a weekend training exercise in Cyprus. CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe reports.
Tustin students continued to learn from home on Tuesday amid the ongoing blaze at a historic hangar that ignited last week. A wall of the 17-story North Tustin Hangar reignited on Sunday, and school officials implemented virtual learning plans instead of hosting in-person classes. While the school closures have only been confirmed for Monday and Tuesday so far this week, it’s possible the closures could extend longer. “Please know that based upon this evolving situation, it is possible that all TUSD schools will finish this week in virtual instruction,” Tustin Unified School District Superintendent Mark Johnson said in an announcement. “We will communicate updates as soon as we know more information.” Officials are “currently preparing for the controlled and systematic teardown of the hangar at a date to be determined,” Johnson added. In the meantime, residents are encouraged to take precautions including: Remaining indoors with windows and doors closed to reduce exposure to ash Avoid contact with ash Avoid vigorous activity If you’re going to go outside, wear a particulate respirator Drink extra water to keep airways moist For more tips and resources, visit the
Police are searching for a stolen vehicle suspect who led officers on a pursuit before crashing in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday morning. The Los Angeles Police Department’s Newton station was first called about the incident around 1 a.m. Officers pursued the stolen vehicle to West 8th Street and South Grand Avenue, where the suspect crashed into another driver, an LAPD spokesperson confirmed. The unidentified suspect then fled on foot to a nearby parking lot but was not located. The driver of the vehicle that was struck was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, police said. No description of the outstanding suspect was released.
A two-car crash in Long Beach left a male pedestrian dead Monday night. The crash in the 1000 block of Pacific Coast Highway occurred at about 5:50 p.m., according to the Long Beach Police Department. Aerial footage from Sky5 shows the crash scene is in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven and the nearby roadway. Two vehicles collided with each other and a man on foot, police said. Two other vehicles also suffered minor damage, their owners told police. That man, whose identity has not been released, was declared dead at the scene. One driver, a man, was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while the other driver, a woman, was treated at the scene and released. While drug or alcohol use “does not appear to be a factor,” officials said “speed may be a factor in the collision.” The investigation is ongoing.
A man was shot and killed early Tuesday morning in Valley Glen, authorities said. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, a call of shots fired came out at 5:45 a.m. in the 12100 block of Califa Street near the intersection with Laurel Canyon Boulevard. Upon arriving at the scene, officers discovered the victim in an alleyway behind an apartment complex. He was described as a man in his mid to late 20s, according to KTLA 5’s Rich Prickett. He was “not conscious and not breathing” when officers found him, an LAPD spokesperson confirmed to KTLA. Footage from Sky5 showed a white sheet covering a body in the alleyway and a canopy being put up for the investigation. Further down the street, several LAPD squad cars were seen blocking the end of Califa where it meets Laurel Canyon. “We’re seeing lots of evidence markers here on the sidewalk,” Prickett said. “Possibly some bullet casings near the body.” No suspect information has been released.
SEVILLA, ESPAÑA — Al desarrollarse en la capital andaluza, era natural que la ya proverbial semana del Latin Grammy, realizada anteriormente en los Estados Unidos de manera continua, tomara en cuenta de manera amplia y comprensiva al flamenco. A fin de cuentas, estamos hablando de un género folclórico de renombre mundial que surgió a fines del siglo 18, que es el motivo máximo de orgullo para quienes viven en esta región de España y que, en 2010, tras mucho batallar, fue declarado por la Unesco Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad. Rosalía, una de las estrellas más notorias de la escena iberoamericana en la actualidad, lo ha empleado con frecuencia en sus canciones, pese a no ser andaluza; pero eso no quiere decir que se trate de una vertiente que goce de difusión masiva en diferentes partes del planeta, sobre todo en su modalidad más pura. Ante todo esto, es curioso que haya sido una compañía transnacional tan abocada al ‘mainstream’ como Universal Music la que haya asumido la responsabilidad de organizar un espectáculo masivo completamente centrado en el flamenco, mayormente en su forma tradicional, y protagonizado
Los Angeles was facing another day with one of its most important highways closed Tuesday amid cautious signs of hope that the 10 Freeway overpass damage downtown might not be as bad as officials initially feared. More than 100 columns along the swath of the freeway were damaged — nine or 10 of them severely — Gov. Gavin Newsom said. On Monday, officials said it was still unclear whether the overpass will be torn down or retrofitted. But a bridge engineer with the California Department of Transportation who was not authorized to speak publicly told The Times that preliminary tests show that damage from Saturday’s massive fire is not as severe as initially feared. Caltrans engineers met with senior management Monday to provide an assessment of the damage and possible timelines for getting traffic moving again across this critical link in the region’s freeway system. “The results were very good,” said the engineer, who described two scenarios contingent on the damaged freeway being shored up and supported from underneath. In the worst case, the shoring will be removed in stages — one direction, then another
Las Vegas — La velocidad y los potentes ruidos de los motores de los autos de la Fórmula 1 regresan después de 40 años a la Ciudad del Pecado, en el “strip” de Las Vegas, con un show más grande y colorido que nunca. La ceremonia de apertura de las 50 vueltas del Gran Premio de Las Vegas 2023 será el miércoles, para después cerrar el sábado, 18 de noviembre, con la carrera principal. Esta será la primera vez desde 1985 que la carrera no se disputará un domingo, desde que lo hizo Sudáfrica en su turno. Con velocidades de hasta 212 millas por hora, en más de 300.000 pies cuadrado de pista con 17 curvas, Las Vegas promete ser una de las ciudades fijas a futuro en la competencia de Fórmula 1. El actual contrato de competencia es para tres años, siendo el 2025 el último. Sin contar la de Italia, que fue cancelado, y tras 21 rondas, Max Verstappen se ha consolidado muy tempraneramente como el campeón de la temporada 2023, su tercero en su carrera, al sumar una gran diferencia sobre el segundo

(WATE) – A man accused of operating a motorized train for children while under the influence during a Christmas event in Tennessee was arrested over the weekend. Police in Tazewell say Henry Meade, 40, was operating “Santa’s Train” at the town’s Christmas Tractor Parade — i.e., driving a motorized lawn mower that he was using to pull carts full of children and their families. On Saturday evening, visitors at the event said they saw Moore acting erratically. Local police officers were soon alerted to the man’s behavior, according to the Tazewell Police Department. “Santa’s Train” (Photo courtesy of Brian O’Brien) Officers said Meade was unsteady on his feet. A field sobriety test determined he was under the influence, according to an arrest narrative. Meade was taken into custody, and police found a syringe, meth and several other narcotics on his person. The town’s mayor and police chief released a joint statement saying Meade was not hired by the city for the parade, but rather that vendors are independently contracted. “Despite this, the Tazewell Police Department responded swiftly to the incident, ensuring the safety of event

On the Shelf So Late in the Day: Stories of Women and Men By Claire KeeganGrove: 128 pages, $20 If you buy books linked on our site, The Times may earn a commission from Bookshop.org , whose fees support independent bookstores. Consider, for a moment, the unforgiving nature of short fiction. Many highly esteemed novels contain stretches that stumble, lumber and digress, with such “fat” either pardoned in the larger context of the meal or praised as authorial swagger. The pleasures of poetry, meanwhile, are so rooted in the abstract and ephemeral that not getting the point can be the point. But the short story or novella comes to life — or fails to — within a margin of error more familiar to neurosurgeons than to writers of fiction. One shaky moment and the operation can flatline. The Irish writer Claire Keegan has over 25 years proven herself to possess an astonishingly steady hand, her taut stories and novellas commanding not just critical fawning and prestigious prizes but, lately, sales to rival even bestselling genre fiction. Keegan began her career with two revered short-story collections
Not just any old musical tune can go up for consideration at the Academy Awards. For one thing, it must be a completely original song to the film it’s in, which explains why so many movies adapted from stage musicals tend to add a fresh song or two. Yet, none of the songs nominated at the 2004 Academy Awards, held on Feb. 29 at the then-Kodak Theater in Hollywood came from a Broadway musical. The list of nominees instead included three musicians better known for their rock ‘n’ roll chops (Annie Lennox, Sting, and Elvis Costello with T. Bone Burnett), and two for their acting résumés (Michael McKean and Annette O’Toole). The original song winners, however, were all part of the onslaught from Middle-earth, as “Into the West,” from “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King,” proved that there was seemingly no category hobbits and elves couldn’t conquer, with the film earning 11 Oscars overall. “Into the West” was written by the film’s co-producer/co-writer (and life partner of director Peter Jackson) Fran Walsh, the film’s composer Howard Shore and singer Lennox. “I’m stunned,”
Sunset Boulevard might be getting its own orb-like structure that doubles as a billboard and broadcasting space, but the project is not trying to be the next Sphere. The Las Vegas venue has its ginormous globular eye on it. The proposed project was previously named “The Sphere,” but its legal spokesperson, Wayne Avrashow, told The Times his clients were contacted by representatives of Sphere in Las Vegas, “who informed us that there was the potential of conflict and confusion.” Avrashow said his clients would, as a result, change the name of the project, though they haven’t yet landed on a new moniker. “We will do that internally and in consultation with the city,” Avrashow said. In a statement to The Times, Sphere Entertainment said, “We will defend our products against any entity that purposefully tries to steal our IP and trade off of Sphere’s worldwide recognition.” Similar names aside, Sphere is a dome-shaped structure and Vegas’ newest performance venue, and the West Hollywood project is spherical in shape. Sphere’s outer shell is an LED screen that displays images of a blinking eyeball, the Earth and
