Efforts Continue to Contain Oil Spill Off Huntington Beach; Cause Under Probe

Share this article:Efforts continued around Huntington Beach and beyond Monday to clean up a massive oil spill from an offshore rig pipeline that threatened the lives of fish, birds and other ocean wildlife, while threatening to keep visitors from enjoying the area for weeks or months. Authorities believe the leak could have spilled as much as 144,000 gallons into the ocean. Coast Guard Capt. Rebecca Ore told reporters Monday afternoon that the oil spill is not one large blot. “I would characterize it as isolated ribbons of oil, or patches of oil,” Ore said. “It’s constantly changing.” Oil has been detected from Huntington Beach south to Dana Point and will continue flowing south with the current as it stands, with some already being seen in Laguna Beach, Ore said. “It’s not one large slick of oil covering this large area of miles,” she said. Martyn Willsher, president and chief executive of Houston-based Amplify Energy, parent company of the oil rig Elly, said his company plans to send divers down to inspect a pipeline “to verify what we’re seeing” from Remotely Operated Vehicles, or ROV, scans…

Hollywood Crew Union Votes Overwhelmingly to Authorize Strike

Share this article:Members of the International Association of Theatrical Stage Employees voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike that could shut down many Hollywood film and television productions, the union announced Monday. “IATSE members in TV and film production voted to authorize the first nationwide industry strike in our 128-year history,” the union said Monday on Twitter. According to the union, 98.68% of members who cast ballots voted yes, and voter turnout among eligible members at nearly 90%. Members of 36 local unions, including 13 on the West Coast, representing 60,000 workers from across the country, granted the approval, the union said. The vote gives the union’s international president, Matthew Loeb, authority to call a walkoff as the union and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers continue to wrangle over a range of issues relating primarily to work conditions but also to revenue growing out of streaming and other “new media.” The authorization does not automatically mean a strike will occur — only that Loeb now has the authority to call a walkout if talks fail to move toward a resolution. The union represents…

UC Davis Baseball Program Suspended For Alleged Misconduct Allowed To Resume Team Activities

DAVIS (CBS13) — The UC Davis varsity baseball team, which has been at the center of an investigation into misconduct, was allowed to resume practice and team activities after being suspended earlier this year, according to a statement from the athletic director. The team’s suspension went into effect in July, not long after their season ended in May. Rocko DeLuca, the athletic director, said though the players have been allowed to resume activities, the coaching staff has not. In the coaching staff’s absence, community members have come forward to assist with practices and other team activities. “These individuals have diverse baseball backgrounds and will provide a depth of experience for our student-athletes,” DeLuca said in his statement. Back in July, UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May said in a letter to students that hazing was at the center of the investigation into the alleged misconduct. Very few details have since been released about the investigation. DeLuca said the team’s resumed activities will be closely monitored to ensure compliance with rules prohibiting hazing. “We ask for privacy for the interim coaches and our student-athletes as they…

Sideshow Ordinance Goes Into Effect This Week In Fairfield

FAIRFIELD (CBS13) — Sideshows are keeping officers busy in Fairfield. In March, an innocent driver was hit head-on by a man who police say was part of a sideshow. A new Fairfield city ordinance will crackdown on the illegal sideshows making participating even as a spectator a crime. We asked Fairfield police what some of the hotspots are for the sideshows. We’re told the south part of the city near Cordelia Road in the industrial areas and the mall have been problem spots for sideshows. “I see it happening to a neighbor where [a car] hit a fire hydrant. If it hadn’t had hit the fire hydrant, it would’ve gone through their house,” a woman explained. The dangerous and reckless behavior has plagued the woman’s neighborhood. She didn’t want to share her name but says she worries about her safety. “They come up and spin around there, 3 or 4 in the morning, I’m scared to death they are going to come through my bedroom,” the woman said. In San Joaquin County, there’s already a special sideshow task force dedicated to investigating and stopping the…

Scripps Research scientist wins Nobel Prize in physiology

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A scientist at Scripps Research in La Jolla Monday jointly received the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine. Ardem Patapoutian, 53, of Scripps Research in La Jolla was selected as a recipient of the Nobel Prize around 3 a.m. for his discovery in touch and temperature receptors. According to the Nobel Committee, Patapoutian used “pressure- sensitive cells” to discover a class of sensors that “respond to mechanical stimuli in the skin and internal organs.” David Julius, 66, was awarded for his findings using capsaicin — a compound found in chili peppers– to identify a sensor in nerve-endings that respond to heat. Julius has been a professor at the University of California, San Francisco since 1989. Ardem Patapoutian, Nobel Prize Winner from Scripps Research, joined KUSI’s Logan Byrnes on Good Evening San Diego to discuss his Nobel Prize.
