A crowd of 100 people wreaked havoc in downtown Portland, Oregon, this week – smashing storefront windows, lighting dumpsters on fire and causing at least $500,000 in damage – but police officers didn't stop them. Portland Police Bureau officials say that's because of legislation passed by Oregon lawmakers this year, which restricts the tools they can use to confront people vandalizing buildings and causing mayhem. “The reason that we did not intervene goes back to what we talked about last month with House Bill 2928 and the restrictions placed on us in a crowd control environment,” KOIN reports that Portland Police Lt. Jake Jensen said in a neighborhood meeting Thursday.

Downsize your home You may have plenty of sentimental reasons to want to stay in your current home, but if it's more space than you need and you can make money off of it, you may want to consider selling now. Not waiting until you have to sell the house makes sense, Orman says, because if you invest the profits now, you'll accrue much more interest than if you waited another 10 or 15 years. I don't want you to wait till you're 60 or 70 to sell this home,” she says.

Matt Hancock has lost his new job at the United Nations just four days after being appointed, following outrage from figures who condemned the “jaw dropping” decision to appoint him as a special envoy for Covid recovery in Africa. The UN's Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) said his appointment was “not being taken forward,” following days of criticism. Mr Hancock, who resigned his job as Health Secretary in June after he was pictured on CCTV kissing an aide, told The Telegraph on Saturday: “I was honoured to be approached by the UN and appointed as Special Representative to the Economic Commission for Africa, to help drive forward an agenda of strengthening markets and bringing investment...

Greenidge Generation runs a once-mothballed plant near the shore of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region to produce about 44 megawatts to run 15,300 computer servers, plus additional electricity it sends into the state's power grid. The megawatts dedicated to Bitcoin might be enough electricity to power more than 35,000 homes. Proponents call it a competitive way to mine increasingly popular cryptocurrencies, without putting a drain on the existing power grid.
A new accuser has filed a class-action lawsuit against Jeffrey Epstein's estate, claiming the late sex-trafficker raped and assaulted her numerous times from 2017 through 2019—including at his homes in Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the months leading up to his arrest—after interviewing her on Skype and promising to aid her career. The woman, a Russian national referred to as Jane Doe, also claims Epstein gave her a tour of his Palm Beach mansion and showed off a broken guitar, a gift he claimed was from his longtime friend, the disgraced director Woody Allen. Doe's complaint, filed in Manhattan federal court on Thursday, also names Epstein's veteran executive assistant Lesley Groff as a defendant.
As the world reaches the two-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic, more items are becoming scarce because of a supply chain shortage across the globe. Supply chain concerns are due to “record-level congestion at the Port of Los Angeles/Long Beach that has spread to the East Coast, the widespread power outages across China, shortages of truck drivers and service workers, and COVID-19-fueled infections and restrictions,” Tinglong Dai, a business professor at Johns Hopkins University, told USA TODAY in an email. This frozen treat is usually the perfect dessert, but in an email on Sept. 14, Ben & Jerry's parent company Unilever cited labor shortages as the reason for reducing the amount of flavors produced.

The finger-pointing at the busy Los Angeles County ports comes as scores of container ships are anchored off the California coast, waiting in some cases for weeks to unload their freight.
Los Angeles County is asking Vanessa Bryant, Kobe Bryant's widow, and other family members to submit psychiatric exams in their legal dispute over photos of the helicopter crash scene that took her husband and daughter's lives. It stems from a legal point: Did Vanessa Bryant and the others suffer emotional distress because photos of their dead relatives were shared by county fire and sheriff's department employees after the crash? Or was the emotional distress only from the crash itself?

The mainstream media's credibility took another big hit this week. Katie Couric, the former co-host of NBC's Today show, revealed in a new memoir that she chose not to air some controversial comments made to her five years ago by the sainted Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, involving RBG's criticism of NFL players like Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem. Couric says she was “conflicted” because she was a “big RBG fan,” so she only aired some of the harsh words RBG had for the football players refusing to stand for the national anthem.
The number of people in Puerto Rico who identified as “white” in the most recent census plummeted almost 80%, sparking a conversation about identity on an island breaking away from a past where race was not tracked and seldom debated in public. The drastic drop surprised many, and theories abound as the U.S. territory's 3.3 million people begin to reckon with racial identity. “Puerto Ricans themselves are understanding their whiteness comes with an asterisk,” said Yarimar Bonilla, a political anthropologist and director of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College in New York.

Climbing crude prices are “not a game-changer” for the Bank of Canada heading into its October rate decision, according to the latest analysis from Capital Economics. The London-based research firm expects the rise will be short-lived, and Canada's central bank will remain focused on “more important indicators” like wage growth and soaring inflation. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil (CL=F) is set for its eighth consecutive weekly gain, the North American benchmark's longest winning streak since 2015.

Mitch Mortvedt, assistant director of the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation, said Xavior's death was being investigated as suspicious, the Des Moines Register reported.
“Like tobacco, Facebook is a dangerous product one uses at one’s own risk.”
“A key reason why this latest scandal feels more significant is that politicians on both sides of the aisle feel deceived.”
“These are clearly problems of scale, which Facebook has had many years to deal with and has been fundamentally unable to.”
“We need to recognize the danger we’re in. We need to shake the notion that Facebook is a normal company.”
“Facebook is in trouble … It’s a cloud of existential dread that hangs over an organization whose best days are behind it.”
