As she continued toward the club’s main entrance, Secret Service agents and PBSO deputies opened fire, said Brian Swain, the Secret Service’s special agent in charge for Miami. Her vehicle was hit several times.

*More funny posts.
I became a fan of YouTube fingerboard personalities Kelsey Barker and Jeremy “ChubyMuffin” Pastor, and I kept finding references to something called “BRTs,” which I soon discovered was shorthand for a product called Blackriver Trucks. These tiny, immensely popular trucks are made by a company called Blackriver, based out of a small town in the German state of Bavaria. They cost $65 for a pair, more expensive than actual skateboard trucks (the company also makes fingerboard decks, wheels, grip tape, and “obstacles” to do tricks on). In pictures online, they glisten in colors of black, chrome, and gold. Many fingerboarders seem mystified by these coveted pieces of hardware. Reddit is full of posts asking if they’re worth the price compared to other types of fingerboard trucks; generally, the consensus seems to be yes.
On retail sites like Big Cartel and in the back alleys of Instagram DMs, fingerboard craftsmen like Vlad Ivanenko of Catfishbbq, John Cowart of Cowply, and Kalye Decks owners Christian Gonzales and Jude Lugtu sell handmade, five-ply wooden decks built to exacting specifications. Usually they feature original artwork applied to the board using heat-transfer techniques that allow for signs of skateboarding-style wear and tear. Other premiere brands like Joycult and Oak Wheels offer up urethane wheels with tiny bearings in them, while Blackriver, Dynamic Fingerboards, and Yellowood sell high-precision trucks that allow you to swerve and turn.

"Dallas County attorney agrees to drop charges against men contracted by judicial branch to test courthouse security"
Des Moines Register:
were charged with third-degree burglary and possession of burglary tools after they tripped the alarm at the Dallas County Courthouse early on the morning of Sept. 11. It was later revealed they also performed physical penetration tests on the Polk County Courthouse and Judicial Building.From November, "How a turf war and a botched contract landed 2 pentesters in Iowa jail"
Equally important, [the Dallas County Sheriff] said, is what he believed to be the overstepping of Iowa officials who retained Coalfire. When the sheriff confronted the men that night, he said: "The State of Iowa has no authority to allow you to break into a county building. You’re going to jail.”

"Practice Fusion, backed by top VCs before selling in 2018, pushed doctors to prescribe opioids in kickback scheme"
Specifically, according to court documents released earlier today by federal prosecutors in Vermont, Practice Fusion solicited a nearly $1 million payment from the opioid company, promising that in exchange it would create alerts in its software that would cause physicians to write more prescriptions for extended release opioids than were needed.
Practice Fusion has agreed to pay $145 million to resolve the DOJ’s criminal and civil investigations, including a $26 million criminal fine and a $118.6 million civil settlement
“During the height of the opioid crisis, the company took a million-dollar kickback to allow an opioid company to inject itself in the sacred doctor-patient relationship so that it could peddle even more of its highly addictive and dangerous opioids.

The model house tour was free of charge. Most of the applicants were single men aged between their 20s and 40s, but some were married or were planning to get married.
The model house tours, which come complete with a family played by an actress as a wife and a child actor for the daughter, were held for men in Tokyo’s Koganei in November.
Actors trained since the summer to respond quickly to unexpected situations that could have developed during the virtual experience.
The scenario included the husband relaxing with his wife on the balcony and helping his daughter with her homework.
The tour guests were allowed to spend about 15 minutes each with their make-believe family.
