Fire in Central California Library claimed the life of one firefighter, another missing.

According to the reports, the flames broke down in Central Valley Library at around 4 PM in Porterville. While battling the fire, one firefighter was killed, and another went missing. The library staff called 911 when they noticed flames n the children’s section of the library. The library has around 77000 books. The fire shot through the roof of the library and crews on the scene quickly called a two-alarm fire.

In a cellphone video that surfaced, there were flames and clouds of black and grey smoke coming from the windows. The library was built in 1953, and the building did not have a sprinkler system installed. More than 50 states, county and city crews continued to battle the stubborn blaze hours later. Porterville Police Chief Eric Kroutil said the department was looking into whether the blaze could have been intentionally set. There was no immediate word on how the firefighter died or what caused the fire.

The video was posted by the family and friends of the boy on Twitter. It showed an officer from Rancho Cordova that is a city in the east of Sacramento holding him in the dirt at the point with his hand on his neck and striking him several times in the chest. The boy was cited for possession of a tobacco product, according to the police, and released to his parents.

The rural-urban is divided into California over COVID-19 infection rates.

Governor Gavin Newsom is signaling every now, and then that economy in California will begin to reopen soon but slowly. He compared it to sliding a dimmer switch incrementally on. He said that the state is now a single geography. The assault COVID-19 had on the state has hit different parts at different levels.

A Sacramento Bee review of the infection along with the death rates in 58 counties of California, showed that there is a vast difference in the depth of the crisis, especially between lightly-hit rural and harder-hit urban spots. Notably, the infection and death rates in the state as a whole, as measured against the state population, show that California, as of this week, has done much better than the nation.

California scaled up 1st-In-US Electric Truck Sale Proposal.

The regulators of California strengthened a proposed first-in-the-nation rule that would force automakers to sell more electric delivery vans and work trucks. The state has the country’s worst air quality. The updated government proposed by the California Air Resources Board has asked the automakers to sell a certain percentage of zero-emission trucks per year.

By 2035, the board estimates at least 20% of these trucks on the road would be electric. Paul Cort, an attorney for Earthjustice’s Right to the Zero campaign, said in his statement that this would be transformative. At some point in the future, these makers are going to realize that it does not make sense to make zero-emission trucks and combustion trucks to serve the same market.

Roblox Adopt Me | Mean Girl


~Hello! This is my first short story, that happened to me in real life!~


So, I was just playing Roblox, then went to Adopt Me. I was doing stuff, taking care of my pet, all that boring stuff, you know? Then, a girl walks up to me, what should I call her? Jenny, ok Jenny asks for a pet in the chat, she keeps asking for one. SO, I go to her house, and give her a cat, I go to the main area, then Jenny sends me a friend request. I accept it, to be nice. Then, Jenny teleports to me and says, 'I don't like cheap pets, give me a rare one.' I give her a rare pet hoping she would leave me alone, but nope! She keeps asking for more, so I ignore her and join a different server, but since she's friends with me, she joined my game. She kept saying what a bully I was, and people BELIEVED her. Like, what?? They kept reporting me and I got kicked out of the game. I'm not saying don't help people, I'm saying don't help the wrong people.

California beaches packed with thousands despite COVID-19 concerns.

Tens of thousands of people visited southern California beaches during the weekend. It reignited the fears that large crowds in public spaces may reverse progress to contain COVID-19 in the US. Photos of gatherings in Newport Beach, Orange County, during a weekend heatwave, sparked intense backlash, and comparisons with Florida were released.

Beach and park reopenings have also prompted debates and public health concerns in Texas, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and other regions looking to re-emerge from lockdowns. The governor urged beach-goers to practice physical distancing, but it all went unheard during the weekend.

The writer apologized to a man who spent 16 years in prison for her rape

Alice Seabold apologized for the illegal conviction of a man who was found not guilty of raping her in 1981.


In her first book, Lucky, Seabord described being raped. Anthony Broadwater was convicted of the crime. He spent 16 years in prison and was on the sex offender registry for more than 20 years.


Seabold also wrote the novel The Lovely Bones, which Peter Jackson turned into an Oscar-nominated film.


"I am most sorry that the life you could have been unjustly stolen from you, and I know that no apology can change what has happened to you," Seabold said in a statement.

A statement released by Broadwater's lawyers said he was "relieved that she apologized."

Seabold's first autobiographical novel sold more than a million copies, which marked the beginning of her writing career.

In it, she described in detail how an 18-year-old student at Syracuse University in New York was raped.
