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.

The videos have reignited criticisms of Hooters for fostering an outdated concept centered around sexualizing servers' bodies.

Kim and the hermit nation's leaders applauded the "Self-Defense 2021" exhibition that saw soldiers getting their hands smashed with sledgehammers, jumping and head-butting through what appeared to be Sheetrock, being beaten, and jumping over cars, footage of the event showed.

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.
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.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom spent the summer campaigning to keep his job and, with a landslide victory in hand, he's continued pushing progressive California further left. In the four weeks after beating back a recall attempt, the Democrat signed laws that require gender-neutral displays of children's toys and toothbrushes in large department stores, made it illegal to remove a condom without consent during intercourse and cleared the way for a nation's first ban on the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers. California is among the deepest blue states in the country — Democrats control all statewide offices and have super majorities in the Legislature, which nowadays often acts as a laboratory for liberal policies that would not get to a vote in many other states.

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.
Scientists now know that seven human-like species lived alongside Homo sapiens for thousands of years. But why is it that only humans survived? Is it possible that we were the product of extraterrestrial experimentation?
Creators with 1 million subscribers shared how much money they make on YouTube. Surpassing the 1 million subscriber mark on YouTube is a huge milestone, and, in practical terms, it often means a creator can earn a full-time living from the platform. YouTube creators earn money a number of ways, but money from the ads that play in their videos usually constitutes a big chunk of their income.

“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.”
