SACRAMENTO — A man active in the campaign against mandatory childhood vaccinations was arrested Wednesday after he streamed himself live on Facebook shoving state Sen. Richard Pan, who is carrying a bill to tighten the rules for obtaining a medical exemption from the shots required by California schools. The Sacramento Police Department said it cited Kenneth Austin Bennett, 54, for misdemeanor battery and released him. The Facebook live video that Bennett recorded showed him walking alongside Pan on a Sacramento street, shoving him from behind and later saying, “So, yeah, I pushed him for laughing, for lying.” Pan stumbled after he was pushed. Shannan Martinez, a spokeswoman for Pan, said the senator is OK and “will not be deterred.” She blamed years of online abuse by vaccine skeptics against Pan, who authored legislation in 2015 eliminating personal belief exemptions for immunizations, for turning him into a target. “This extremist movement has … [Read more...] about Anti-vaxxer arrested for shoving pro-vaccine California state Sen.

Ayesha Curry took a risk with restaurateur Michael Mina last year by opening International Smoke in Houston, a city that has a prolific barbecue scene, only a month after the Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets in the 2018 Western Conference finals. NBA fandom knows no bounds, so controversy, or online trolling, followed the venture from its beginning to its end, which came this week as Curry and Mina abruptly decided to close the Houston restaurant. The International Smoke locations in San Francisco, outside of San Diego and near Miami are unaffected by the closure and will remain open, and a location in Las Vegas is still due to open next year, the owners said in a statement. “International Smoke Houston will be closing its doors, effective immediately. We are grateful to all of our staff and guests for all of their support in the time that we’ve been open,” the statement read. Curry and Mina declined to provide further comment. Curry’s … [Read more...] about Ayesha Curry and Michael Mina close International Smoke in Houston

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, PA - There was no debate here at Patch's swank Pittsburgh office over what event would top this Five Things To Do This Weekend list. It's regatta weekend. The EQT Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta runs Friday through Sunday in and around Point State Park, the North Shore and a trio of rivers we once named a stadium after: The Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio. So what's going on? Almost too much for the senses to handle. But we distilled what you absolutely need to know about the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta because we don't want you to feel overwhelmed.

Two Republican lawmakers told BuzzFeed News Wednesday suspected terrorists have infiltrated the U.S.–Mexico border and as many as 10 fighters have been captured, but Homeland Security officials deny any such thing has happened. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Republican from Utah, said four alleged terror suspects were captured on Sept. 10 in Texas. In an interview Wednesday, Chaffetz said the men flew from a Middle Eastern country to Mexico City, where they paid a smuggler to take them to and across the border. From there, the men ended up in a safe house for immigrants. They were en route to New York City, Chaffetz said, when they were captured.Chaffetz would not reveal his source of the information, but said he confirmed it with government officials. "I had an informant tell me about it and then I questioned the Secretary of Homeland Security," he said. "I have no doubt about its authenticity."The four alleged terror suspects had affiliations with groups other than the Islamic State … [Read more...] about Two GOP Congressmen Say Suspected Terrorists Caught Crossing U.S.–Mexico Border
