    President BidenJoe BidenUS threatens sweeping export controls against Russian industries Headaches intensify for Democrats in Florida US orders families of embassy staff in Ukraine to leave country MORE on Monday said his administration is taking on anti-competitive practices, pointing to enforcement against illegal repair restrictions, actions for hearing aids to be sold over the counter, and ramped up efforts to scrutinize mergers. The president gave an update to the sweeping executive order he signed in July, which aimed to promote competition in the economy through 72 initiatives. He said that every deadline the order called for was met in the six months since it was issued, during a meeting with the Competition Council, which was created through the order. “Bottom line is our economy shouldn’t be about people working for capitalism, it should be about capitalism working for people, for everyone,” Biden said at the meeting at the White House. He said the council is working to make a difference “in ordinary people’s lives.” When the order was released in July, the administration said that anti-competitive practices across industries have...
    WILMINGTON (CBS) – A Keolis employee who was working on a railroad crossing system before a deadly crash is now on administrative leave. On Friday night, Roberta Sausville was killed when her car was hit by a Commuter Rail train at a crossing in Wilmington. The MBTA says a Keolis worker was doing maintenance on the crossing gate system before the crash and never turned the system back on. MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak said “human error” is the primary focus of the investigation. On Monday, Keolis said that signal maintenance worker is on leave while the investigation continues. “Keolis is committed to working with investigators, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and the MBTA to identify and address the circumstances of this heartbreaking accident,” Keolis said in a statement.

    LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Gunmen on a motorcycle shot and killed a Pakistani journalist in the eastern city of Lahore on Monday before fleeing the scene, a police official and industry officials said. It was not immediately clear who was behind the killing of Husnain Shah, who worked for the Capital TV news channel as a reporter. The attackers targeted Shah near the Lahore Press Club. Senior police officer Safdar Raza Kazmi said officials were still investigating to determine who killed Shah. Angered over the attack, journalists rallied in Lahore, condemning the assault and demanding the arrest of the killers. Punjab chief minister Usman Buzdar condemned the attack and ordered a probe into the incident. Pakistan has long been a deadly country for journalists. In 2020, it ranked ninth on the Committee to Protect Journalists’ annual Global Impunity Index, which assesses countries where journalists are regularly killed and the assailants go free.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Diabetes is one of the chronic health conditions that can make you more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The most recent statistics from the CDC show 88 million Americans with prediabetes, which means higher than normal blood sugar levels. READ MORE: Florida Gets $4 Billion Bump in Estimated Tax DollarsDoctors are working to get out the word on how Americans can protect themselves. “Prediabetes is a serious health condition that actually puts people at risk for other serious health conditions like heart attack, stroke and, of course, type 2 diabetes,” says Dr. Christopher Holliday, director of the CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation. One of the biggest challenges in treating prediabetes is that it usually has no symptoms. Most people don’t even know they have it. That’s why the CDC and the American Medical Association joined forces with a series of public service announcements to raise awareness. Dr. Colette Knight of the Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey says lifestyle changes make all the difference, including regular...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Harvard professor Danielle Allen said she is running for governor in an attempt to bring a “people-powered approach” to Beacon Hill. Allen is one of three current Democratic candidates in the race to replace Gov. Charlie Baker, who will not seek a third term in office. WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller talked to Allen about what she believes makes her the best candidate to be the next governor. “I care about the future. Future for our young people, for all of us. We’ve got to do work together with all of us to deliver the democracy, healthy communities, the healthy climate we need,” Allen said. Allen said Attorney General Maura Healey, who joined the race last week and is considered by many to be a front-runner in the election, represents the status quo. “We need solutions that are coming from the people, a people-powered approach for our politics, not top-down solutions from Beacon Hill. The Attorney General has been working on Beacon Hill over the last eight years,” Allen said. Keller asked Allen about several topics related...
    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” accused Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) of working with the Republicans to “sabotage” President Joe Biden’s agenda. Anchor Dana Bash said, “We are one year into the Biden presidency. Those two key priorities are stalled in the Senate because Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema won’t get on board. How frustrated are you?” Sanders said, “It’s not only those two. It’s 50 Republicans who have been adamant, not only in pushing an anti-democratic agenda, but also opposing our efforts to try to lower the cost of prescription drugs, to expand medicare to include dental, hearing and eyeglasses, to improve the disastrous situation in-home health care, in child care, to address the existential threat of climate change. You have 50 republicans who don’t want to do anything except criticize the president. You have, sadly enough, two Democrats who choose to work with the Republicans rather than the president and who have sabotaged the president’s efforts to address the needs of working families in this country.

    Anyone who's been to the gym in January will know it's a time where people suddenly embrace fitness, bringing in their new year goals by working out and eating healthy.

    Kanye West and DJ Khaled have been working on some new music together at the producer's plush home in Miami over the last couple of days. During their session on Saturday, Khaled took a brief timeout to surprise the rap superstar by gifting him with a pair of very rare Jordan sneakers. And from the look of the big beaming smile on Ye's face, he was more than appreciative of the gesture, which doesn't come by easy, considering there were only 100 pairs made, which Khaled noted a number of times in an Instagram video.

    WITH winter weather in full swing around the country, you may notice that your smartphone has been glitchy. Your phone's battery life could be in jeopardy if temperatures drop too low. 1Your phone may glitch in frigid temperatures Temperature can actually affect how phones function. If a phone gets too hot or cold, it may glitch to help regulate its temperature. Many smartphones rely on Lithium-Ion batteries which are easily affected by the cold. The science behind these types of batteries shows that as temperatures drop, the internal resistance of the battery increases, according to Sciencing. In simpler terms, this means that your battery has to work that much harder to keep your phone on and running. As such, you may notice that your phone is moving slowly and that the visuals aren't as sharp as usual.

"If you talk to the people who are here, some people don’t understand why we come and why we’re marching, but we understand as the family of faith, that our hope is ultimately not in who governs us, it’s not in the laws that we make as a nation," Cameron proclaimed.

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said it seems like liberals “are always suggesting sacrifices” on coronavirus that “they themselves don’t have to take part in.” Maher stated, “[T]he people with the consulting jobs or whatever bullshit they do, they get to stay at home and order the food out and do shit by Zoom, and — whereas the working — it’s the working-class people who are breathing their shitty, stale air all day. That’s — that looks like it’s going to create a class resentment.

    A woman has divided opinion after revealing she filmed a man at the gym and was 'relieved' to find he hadn't been staring at her while she was working out.  Libby Christensen, 22, from Kansas, set up a camera to film herself as she squatted on a machine at the gym.   Sitting on a bench behind her was a man, who she said made her feel 'uncomfy' at the time because she feared he was checking her out while she was exercising.  However when she checked the clip back she was relieved to see he was working out himself and that 'her booty wasn't her focus'.  While some commenters agreed with her, others questioned why she had filmed him at all and said it 'crossed a line' and invaded his privacy.  Libby Christensen, 22, from Kansas, set up a camera to film herself as she squatted on a machine at the gym.

    (CNN)On Thursday night, former President Donald Trump appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox show. And the two men had the following exchange: Hannity: "I want America to do well. I really do, with all my heart. And I -- the only way that I see that he could change course is, as The Wall Street Journal pointed out today, rightly so -- there's no course correction with [President Joe Biden]. He seems locked into every one of these failed policies. So, you know, you know, you keep banging your head against the wall. Why would you expect a different result?"Trump: "So, we would have had the wall completed in three weeks. It was largely completed. We did almost 500 miles of wall in the southern border. It was really working. It really had an impact. And we were working along with Mexico, and Guatemala, Honduras. We were -- El Salvador -- all of these countries we were working."Before I go any further, let me make this clear: This is a REAL exchange that occurred between the former president and a prominent...
    Prince Andrew could lose his round-the-clock police protection as early as next month after he was exiled as a frontline royal. Sources say a full review of his security is being carried out by the Metropolitan Police and the Home Office following last week's decision by the Queen to strip her son of his remaining military and charitable affiliations and stop him using his HRH title. He must now fight claims of rape and sexual assault in the US courts as a private citizen. Prince Andrew in 2019. He could lose his round-the-clock police protection as early as next month after he was exiled as a frontline royal Andrew, who remains ninth in line to the throne, has so far been allowed to keep his taxpayer-funded police bodyguards at a cost to the public purse of an estimated £2-3million a year. This has sparked intense public debate, particularly because his nephew, Prince Harry, was stripped of his police protection when he quit as a working royal in 2020 and moved to the United States. It is understood that the Royal and...

    D.C.’s deputy mayor for public safety told the council that the main source of an “influx” of guns coming into the District is changing, and that police are changing their tactics as well. “We have seen an influx of guns coming into the District of Columbia, definitely,” Chris Geldart testified during a council oversight hearing on Thursday. But no longer is law enforcement seeing the majority of illegal firearms coming from Virginia. Since the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives began firearms examinations in place of D.C.’s Department of Forensic Sciences 10 months ago, Geldart said, they’ve recorded a change in the source. “Right now, primarily what we’re seeing are guns that are coming in from Georgia and North Carolina. Those are the two primary areas, and, of course, we’re working with the ATF and they’re working with the states and all of that to see how we start to curb some of that,” Geldart said. When Council member Janeese Lewis George asked Geldart how he tracks the success of the D.C. police, he referred to the impact made...
    An unemployed Wisconsin man has been found guilty of murdering and dismembering his parents after they caught him lying about being a police scuba diver.  It took two hours Wednesday for a jury to convict Chandler Halderson, 23, of killing father Bart and mother Krista Halderson in the summer of 2021. Chandler was also found guilty of providing false information on a kidnapping, as well as mutilating and hiding their corpses.  Prosecutors say Halderson killed his parents July 1, 2021 after his father discovered he'd been lying about attending Madison Area Technical College - one of a series of lies prosecutors say he'd long been telling everyone, including that he worked for aerospace company SpaceX, as a police scuba diver and for the American Family Insurance company.  In reality, they say, Halderson was unemployed and had dropped out of school.  The 23-year-old now faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison for first degree intentional homicide, as per state law. Chandler Halderson is tentatively scheduled for sentencing on either March 17 or 18. The court revoked his bail.   Chandler Halderson sits in...
    Teachers, social workers, firefighters, members of the military, and other government and nonprofit workers are seeing their student debt wiped clean thanks to the Biden administration’s overhaul of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. The program was supposed to make public service work more appealing by offering the promise that, after 10 years of payments, people’s student loans would be forgiven. Instead, virtually no one qualified—just over 16,000 people as of fall 2021. That has changed. Around 70,000 public servants have now gotten nearly $5 billion in relief, and in the end, up to 550,000 of them could get help.  This change comes because, after years of rejections because people had been paying on loans from the wrong program, or had paid a little late or submitted payments that were off by as little as a few cents—rejections that often came after people had paid for 10 years in good faith, without being told they weren’t qualifying—the Department of Education put into place a temporary fix. It allows people to consolidate all of their loans into eligible ones and submit a form to get...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The bone-chilling temperatures Friday left many people trying to find ways to warm up. But for some, being outside is unavoidable because it’s how they make a living.

    New York (CNN Business)The percentage of the adult population not working because of Covid-related reasons tripled between December and January, according to Goldman Sachs. The Wall Street bank, citing the latest Household Pulse Survey of roughly 75,000 respondents from the Census Bureau, said the share of adults not working due to virus-related reasons jumped from 1.2% in December to 3.5% in January. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, pointed out on Twitter that the survey shows a staggering 12 million people were "not working because they were sick with the virus, taking care of someone who was, or were fearful of getting sick." The survey, done in the first 10 days of January, is "more evidence of the economic damage Omicron is doing," Zandi said. The rapid spread of Omicron has caused significant disruptions in recent weeks by getting workers sick and forcing others to quarantine.

    Social distancing rules and self-quarantines look like they are going to be here for a while, which means it’s time to double down on our plants. Why? Because plants are the therapeutic relief we need during this time of adversity and uncertainty; working 24/7 to keep us mentally and physically healthier. Just the presence of plants in your environment can reduce feelings of anxiety and depression by 37% and 58% respectively, (New University of Technology in Sydney) and considering that most of us will be working from home for the foreseeable future, plants in our workspaces can boost our creativity and productivity by as much as 15% (Human Spaces Report).

    DENVER (CBS4) – Catalytic converter theft has been on the rise in the Denver metro area. Now state lawmakers are working to curb these crimes affecting the livelihoods of Coloradans. More than 2,000 catalytic converters were stolen in the city of Denver alone in 2021. “It was a bummer. You start losing faith in humanity and wondering why people are resorting to this kind of thing,” said Edwin Watkins, a Denver resident whose catalytic converter was stolen last week. His neighbor’s catalytic converter has been stolen twice. The cost to repair his vehicle was more than the car was worth. As he shops for another car, he can’t help but wonder how safe it will be. “Hopefully the police department is putting together some kind of a detective unit or something to see if they can find the thefts occurring,” said Watkins. If the bill is passed, it will be against the law to install, sell, offer for sale, or advertise any used, recycled, or salvaged catalytic converter unless it has been certified for installation and sale by the Colorado...
    The sickening biographies of over 200 SS women serving at Auschwitz death camp and their 'after work parties' have been published online in an effort to show the world that it wasn't just men involved. Entitled 'Women working for the SS', the project from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum documents the women's lives from birth and how they ended up serving WWII madman Adolf Hitler. One of the women was Maria Mandl, a senior SS guard in Auschwitz from October 1942 to October 1944 who was nicknamed 'The Beast' by prisoners. Born in 1912 the daughter of a shoemaker, she first started work in a Nazi concentration camp in Lichtenburg Germany in 1938 before being transferred to the camp for women in Ravensbruk, also in Germany. In 1942 she was sent to Auschwitz where she became infamous for her sadism and sending 'an estimated half a million women and children to their deaths in the gas chambers.'

    The Tampa Bay Rays' proposed plan to split the season between Florida and Montreal has been rejected by Major League Baseball. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg announced the news on Thursday. "Today's news is flat-out deflating," Sternberg said. The idea of playing in both the Tampa Bay area and Montreal has been discussed over the past several years after attempts to build a new full-time ballpark locally failed. "Things had progressed nicely and things had been working nicely, and then recently it just sort of took a turn to the south and we don’t precisely know why," Sternberg said. "I have no doubt that what we tried to accomplish with our sister-city plan will become accepted in all of professional sports.

    (CNN)The Republican Party is working overtime to suppress the vote and undermine American democracy. It is a party which ignores climate change, the existential threat to our planet and represents the interests of the wealthy and the powerful while turning its back on struggling working-class families. The GOP is the party that gives tax breaks to billionaires while pushing for cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other programs desperately needed by ordinary Americans. Bernie SandersAnd yet, despite the outrageous behavior of leading Republicans and their reactionary and unpopular agenda, recent polling suggests that Republicans stand a strong chance to gain control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate and pick up additional seats in state legislatures throughout the country. Why is this happening? Why, despite the horrendous Republican record, are Democrats losing support among Latinos, young people and African Americans? How does it happen that a party that is supposed to stand for working families was rejected by over 75% of White voters without college degrees in the most recent gubernatorial race in Virginia?Democrats cannot ignore...

But after learning the fatal fire in Fordham Heights was caused by a malfunctioning space heater, she didn’t feel safe.

    FREMONT — An employee at the Tesla factory in Fremont died early Wednesday while working on a production line, and health and safety officials are looking into the cause of the death. The worker collapsed while working on the powertrain line at the factory, according to the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, known as Cal/OSHA. The agency said Tesla notified officials of the death. “Cal/OSHA is gathering more information to determine the work-relatedness of this event and whether to conduct an inspection,” the agency said in an emailed statement Thursday morning. The death was first reported by KTVU. Between 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. Wednesday, Fremont Fire Department crews responded to a report of a man trapped in machinery at the factory, according to Aisha Knowles, a spokesperson for the fire department. However, the first firefighters to arrive “updated the response to a medical emergency and said there was no machinery involved,” and additional fire crews responding as part of the initial call for a rescue were cancelled, Knowles said. Falck paramedics pronounced the man dead at the...
    MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan has warned that the problem with painting Fox News as “eccentric” is that some of its far-right commentary isn’t just weird, goofy or bizarre — it is flat-out dangerous. And a prime example of “Fox and Friends” hosts pushing false information, according to Media Matters, is the claim that “the vaccines aren’t working.” Media Matters’ Eric Kleefeld observes that this week on “Fox and Friends,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt “attacked President Joe Biden, claiming, ‘He didn't shut down the virus, and now, we’re learning the vaccines aren't working for this latest variant’…. In the next hour, co-host Brian Kilmeade ridiculed Biden for saying ‘the same thing for a year — get vaccinated, get vaccinated, come on, get vaccinated.’ He also claimed that the country needs ‘a new plan’ of living with the virus — as if such a ‘plan’ would not require everyone to be vaccinated and to take certain other precautions to be remotely workable.” Kleefeld, debunking Earhardt, notes, “In fact, data shows the vaccines are still effective at preventing hospitalizations and deaths for breakthrough infections from...
    President Joe Biden dared to acknowledge that Republicans don’t have the warmest view of fair elections these days, and a series of media big names are very concerned about Biden acknowledging it. Not about Republicans attempting to overturn a presidential election and then passing laws making it harder to vote, among other efforts to use legislation—rather than appealing to voters—as a way to win future elections. Let’s look at what Biden said—all of what he said on the subject, no cherrypicking. First he was asked, “Speaking of voting rights legislation, if this isn’t passed, do you still believe the upcoming election will be fairly conducted and its results will be legitimate?” Biden’s answer: THE PRESIDENT: Well, it all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election. And it’s one thing—look, maybe I’m just being too much of an optimist. Remember how we thought not that many people were going to show up to vote in the middle of...

    Wally Adeyemo, deputy U.S. Treasury secretary, speaks during a news conference at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Monday, Nov. 8, 2021.Ting Shen | Bloomberg | Getty Images The Biden administration on Thursday imposed sanctions on four individuals accused of working at the direction of the Russian government to destabilize Ukraine. The sanctions come as world leaders brace for a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine and work with allies to deter the Kremlin from launching an attack. But the Treasury Department said the new penalties are "separate and distinct" from a range of "high impact" economic and financial sanctions that the U.S. is threatening to impose on Russia if it further invades Ukraine. At a press conference a day earlier, President Joe Biden said he expected President Vladimir Putin would invade Ukraine, while vowing that such a move would be "a disaster" for Russia. Thursday's sanctions target two "pawns" of Russian intelligence in Ukraine and two ex-Ukrainian officials backing Russia, the Treasury said in a press release. "The United States is taking action to expose and counter...
    Former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner spoke out against Lia Thomas, a transgender swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania, for competing against women. “I’ve said from the beginning, biological boys should not be playing in women’s sports,” Jenner said during an appearance on Fox News’ America Reports. “We need to protect women’s sports.” “First of all, I respect her decision to live her life authentically. 100 percent. But, that also comes with responsibility and some integrity. I don’t know why she’s doing this,” Jenner continued. “It’s not good for the trans community.” The 72-year-old Jenner transitioned in 2015, nearly four decades after she won a gold medal in the 1976 Olympics, competing in the men’s decathlon as Bruce Jenner. Thomas is currently in her first season competing against women, after three years as a male swimmer at UPenn. She last competed on UPenn men’s swimming team in 2019 as Will Thomas. “Her hands are bigger. She can swim faster. That’s a known,” Jenner argued. “All of this woke world that we’re living in right now is not working. I feel sorry for...

    Jensen Ackles revealed that he had a "horrible" time working with Jessica Alba on the 2000 series "Dark Angel." The "Supernatural" actor was brought in as a series regular on the show for its second season, which ended up being its last. Alba played a genetically enhanced super-soldier and assassin who escapes her handler and tries to uncover the secrets of her past in a near-future, somewhat apocalyptic version of America.  Speaking to Michael Rosenbaum on his "Inside You" podcast earlier this week, Ackles pulled no punches in describing the negative experience he had working with Alba. However, he stopped short of saying she was not a good person or unprofessional.  "Horrible," Ackles said when asked what it was like to work with her on the show. "I'm not kidding. I've told this to her face."

    A bug has been uncovered in Safari 15, the latest versions of Apple’s default search engine, that exposes users' internet activity and personal data online. Discovered by FingerprintJS, the bug allows any website that uses IndexedDB, a JavaScript application programming interface, for client-side data storage to access the names of IndexedDB databases generated by other websites during a user's browsing session. The flaw also lets sites ‘see’ which other websites iOS users are visiting in different tabs or windows. And because some websites use unique user-specific identifiers in database names, users’ information can be easily accessed. FingerprintJS points out the list of sites include YouTube, Google Calendar and Google Keep. Apple engineers are preparing a fix, according to 9to5Mac, which is expected to be ‘released to users very soon’ - but the tech giant has yet to reveal when.

    The Department of Defense has declassified and released the video footage of the Aug. 29 botched drone strike in Afghanistan that killed 10 civilians. The footage was released on Wednesday after the New York Times filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against U.S. Central Command. Videos show roughly 25 minutes of footage from two MQ-9 Reaper drones capturing the courtyard and vehicle moments before, during, and after the missile hit the car, according to the New York Times. DEFENSE WATCHDOG WARNED AFGHAN AIR FORCE WOULD COLLAPSE WITHOUT US ASSISTANCE IN JANUARY 2021 The strike occurred just two days before the U.S. military was set to depart Afghanistan after spending nearly 20 years there following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. At the time of the strike, the Biden administration and Defense Department officials had publicly warned that the threat of a terrorist attack against the troops working to evacuate people at risk under the new Taliban regime was very high and they had thwarted a different attempt. Those fears became a reality days earlier, on Aug. 26, when an ISIS-K...
    Donald Trump on Wednesday denied that he was working to 'intimidate' the Republican Party, insisting that the party 'loves' him and that he loves them. Joe Biden earlier delivered an almost two-hour press conference without once mentioning his predecessor by name. Yet he said that Trump remained a potent force in politics, and accused the former president of working to cower current lawmakers into following his lead and blocking Biden's policies. 'Did you ever think that one man out of office could intimidate an entire party where they're unwilling to take any vote contrary to what he thinks should be taken for fear of being defeated in a primary?' asked Biden on Wednesday. 'I've had five Republican senators talk to me, 'bump into me' — quote, unquote — or sit with me, who've told me that they agree with whatever I'm talking about for them to do. 'But, Joe, if I do it, I'm going to get defeated in a primary.' 'We got to break that. That's got to change.' Joe Biden on Wednesday did not mention Trump, but instead...
    Novak Djokovic and his wife own 80% of a Danish biotech firm looking to create a treatment for COVID-19 that bypasses vaccination. The tennis star is the controlling shareholder of QuantBioRes, a company working to develop a treatment with a “deactivation mechanism” for COVID-19, according to the company’s website. Ivan Loncarevic, QuantBioRes’s chief executive, confirmed Djokovic’s investment to Reuters. He said he had not spoken to the tennis star since November and that Djokovic is “not anti-vax,” according to a report. The biotech company includes 11 researchers who are working in Denmark, Australia, and Slovenia to develop the treatment that Loncarevic stressed is not a vaccine. Clinical trials are reportedly set to launch this summer.

    A lack of facilities to care for those experiencing mental illness and soft-on crime policies in Los Angeles County has resulted in a crisis that, at the very worst, has seen deadly results such as the killing of a 24-year-old woman who was randomly stabbed to death while working at a high-end furniture store, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.  Sheriff Alex Villanueva touched on the case of Brianna Kupfer, who was allegedly murdered by Shawn Laval Smith, who authorities believe is homeless, as Villanueva was working at the Croft House furniture shop last week in Los Angeles's Fairfax District.

    Tesla owners living in Alaska and western Canada are being forced to drive their vehicles without heat in the cabin when temperatures are dropping far below freezing. The issue, which has plagued Model 3 and Model Y vehicles since last winter, started when a new heat pump system was added to the vehicles and persisted with a software update. Tesla owners have taken to Twitter to share this frustration, as Elon Musk is the only person on the company's customer service team, with one customer saying his family could have been killed. Tyler Selvig explained in a tweet that the heat stopped working in his Model Y while temperatures had dropped to -40F. 'Our Model Y could have killed my family today when the heat stopped working in -40c Called service and the reset and auto didn't fix. Hour away from any service,' reads the tweet.
