‘Halloweentown’ Isn’t Just A Classic Disney Movie — It’s A Real Place You Should Visit

Come October, everyone starts squealing about how utterly obsessed they are with Halloween. But we assure you, no one is as dedicated to the spooky holiday as the quaint town of St. Helens, Oregon

The riverside city was used as the backdrop for Disney’s “Halloweentown” ― the iconic 1998 kids flick about a young witch who, with the help of her grandmother, saves a town of ghouls, ghosts and goblins who all live together in harmony.

The people of St. Helens decided that the supernatural town didn’t have to end with the 90s. Now, the townspeople come together every October to transform St.

My Visit to the Columbine Memorial

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the Columbine Memorial in Littleton, Colorado. Even though my family loves Colorado as a vacation destination, I had never stopped by to see what was done to honor those who lost their lives in that horrific tragedy. My friend Dan – who lives in Littleton – said that he doesn’t understand why it isn’t more of a big deal. He discovered it while out for a run one day, but thinks that it should be in every “Top Things to See in Colorado” tourist list. I agree. It is a big deal.

Hacking, China’s maritime claims overshadow Xi’s US visit

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

As Chinese President Xi Jinping makes his first state visit to Washington this week, the outlook for relations is decidedly murkier than when he hosted President Barack Obama at their last summit less than a year ago. Tensions are rising over allegations of Beijing-directed cyberattacks on the U.S. and China’s moves to assert its South China Sea territorial claims. Much of the American public sees China as an economic threat and criticisms are rising over a sweeping crackdown on civil rights. “U.S. suspicions regarding Chinese intentions are growing,” said Aaron L. Friedberg, professor of politics and international affairs at Princeton University. “The atmosphere surrounding this summit may be more negative than any in the post-Tiananmen period,” Friedberg said, referring to China’s bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in 1989 that marked the nadir in relations. At the same time, belief in China’s inexorable rise has been shaken by a stock market plunge and an economic slowdown that have sent shockwaves through global markets. And last month’s catastrophic chemical warehouse explosion in a city just east of Beijing that killed 173 people have also underscored concerns about corruption and incompetence, increasing doubts about the viability of China’s model of authoritarian governance. Circumstances […]

China ambassador: Hacking sanctions could hurt Xi visit

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

China’s ambassador to the United States is warning that sanctioning Beijing for hacking the U.S. government would be counterproductive ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Washington visit at the end of the month. The White House is reportedly on the precipice of unveiling economic sanctions against China for hacking U.S. companies, and potentially for orchestrating the massive digital theft of over 20 million federal workers’ data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Such punishments would come at a pivotal time for the U.S.-China relationship. Later this month, Xi will make his first official trip as president to Washington for a series of high-level meetings. Both sides have been trying to remain on good terms ahead of the visit, despite ongoing disputes over China’s recent currency devaluation and territorial claims in the South China Sea, in addition to growing cyber tensions. Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai argued hacking sanctions could help derail the meetings. Such punishments would be non-constructive, Cui said, according to China Daily, a state news outlet. “This means that China and the U.S. have every reason to conduct more communications and cooperation in this regard, instead of moving towards conflict and confrontation,” the ambassador […]

UCSF student fatally shot in Albany hours after temple visit

A UCSF dental student found shot to death in her Albany apartment was attacked hours after attending services at a Sikh temple in El Sobrante, police said as they revealed more details and asked for tips in the investigation into the city’s first homicide since 2004.

Randhir Kaur, 37, was found dead in a pool of blood in her apartment at 1068 Kains Ave. about 4 p.m. last Monday. Her cousin found her body after being summoned by UCSF officials who became concerned after she missed scheduled appointments earlier in the day.

An autopsy by the Alameda County coroner revealed that she had been shot once in the head, police said.

Jennifer Walter walked into a portable room outside the Napa County Jail last week and had a brief conversation with her 21-year-old son. But despite being just 100 feet away, the inmate appeared from inside the jail on a computer screen for a video chat of the type hosted by Skype or Google Talk. The mother and son were on the front lines of a national trend that has jails around the country moving away from in-person visits, replacing them with digital ones. But while the shift has some clear advantages — for counties, inmates and their loved ones — prisoner advocates are raising alarm, saying video visitation is impersonal and that its emergence has frequently left jail policies in the hands of profit-driven technology companies. A consultant hired by the U.S. Department of Justice reported in December that video chats are best used as a supplement, but “should not be deemed as an invitation to discontinue in-person visiting.” The consultant added, “Traditional, in-person visiting is a best practice that should continue in all correctional settings when possible.” Counties shift to video However, in the Bay Area, Napa officials have allowed only video visitation for family and friends since premiering […]

How do you put an international spotlight on an issue like child sexual abuse which people often don’t like to hear about?

Have the leader of one the largest organized religions in the world stop by for a visit.

That’s what staff of the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance (PCA) are hoping will happen come September.

The nonprofit, which offers care to sexually abused children and works with police to bring their abusers to justice, penned a letter to Pope Francis asking him to visit their facility when he travels to Philadelphia for the upcoming World Meeting of Families conference.
