' Serial stowaway ' was again arrested f Chicago
Following repeated attempts to get in without boarding passes, the woman who was nicknamed the "serial stowaway" was arrested again, the Chicago police stated.
The Chicago Police Department said in a news release that Marilyn Hartman was taken into custody Friday night after she tried to pass into Chicago's O'Hare International Airport screening without a boarding pass or identification.
The Illinois woman is charged with one felony crime count in an area/airport recorded and is scheduled to appear in court on Sunday morning, the release said.
Hartman was still on probation for a prior trespassing incident that, according to the report, barred her from going to O'Hare or Midway airports without a boarding pass.
Friday's detention contributes to Hartman's list of at least five others.
She was charged in O'Hare last year after British authorities initially detained her in England. She was charged with a misdemeanor count of trespassing and a felony count of robbery after having successfully flown from Chicago to London without a visa or boarding pass.
After that visit, she was advised to undertake a psychiatric evaluation. Those who witnessed her arrests said that the effectiveness of her evasive maneuvers relies on her ability to blend into the crowd as an apparently innocent, elderly white woman
Hartman made national headlines in August 2014 when she was charged at Los Angeles International Airport for boarding a flight without a fare from Mineta San Jose International Airport. She agreed not to fight the proceedings and was sentenced to probation.
The next day, she was taken back to Los Angeles International Airport. She was seen landing at the airport and visiting passenger terminals.
"The Airport Police officers did not know that Hartman was attempting to buy an airline ticket and that she had no reservation or boarding pass in her hands when she was detained," the airport said in a statement.

A man is in jail after he fired five people — four of them fatally — in an apartment building in Chicago, police said. The shooting took place on Saturday night, and a gun was seized from the site, according to Tom Ahern, the Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The suspect — a 67-year-old retired construction worker — allegedly shot the victims while they were eating inside the home, quoting the police.
"As he walked into the neighbor's apartment, there were four people at the dinner table," said First Deputy Superintendent Anthony Riccio. "He opened fire and murdered them for motives we don't know yet."
After shooting at the dinner table, the man allegedly went upstairs and shot a woman who had been hospitalized in serious condition, the affiliate reported. The suspect is a neighbor identified to the victims he added. The police have not provided any additional information.
In the midst of increasing debt for more than 650 police and fire pension funds across the City, local finances are being pushed out, facilities are being strained and tax bills are at risk, as politicians have failed repeatedly to reach an agreement on the reform.
Municipalities and municipalities have long disagreed with the most frequently discussed approach, consolidating the funds and several measures aiming at resolving this issue were not included in the spring meeting of the General Assembly. Nonetheless, this summer there is an expectation that the bill will eventually be brought forward with a realistic policy plan, as a task force appointed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker would make recommendations to improve the health of pension funds across the world.
"It's so clear that it's about how we do, we shouldn't," said Brad Cole, Executive Director of the Municipal League of Illinois. "After a spring session in which lawmakers settled on a considerable number of goals for Pritzker — like recreational cannabis, gaming reform and phased income tax — I'm really hopeful about something that could come up in the fall veto."
Recent focus has been paid to investments for Illinois ' five public-wide state government retirement program and the Chicago Foundation's nearly $28 billion in unfunded liabilities. Nevertheless, figures are smaller in comparison, and many cities and towns throughout the world have their own retirement problems. Unfunded shared obligations in over 650 Police districts and downstairs.
All in all, we have enough assets to cover just 55% of the debt, well short of the government's 90% funding goal by 2040, and the estimate has decreased since the Great Recession was nearly 63%. Several programs remain seriously behind–according to the commission's study, the North Chicago Police Pension Fund is only 28 percent funded by firemen. The grants completely protect nearly 20,000 officers and 14,000 fire staff. For more than a decade local governments have sought to incorporate the single funding needed for any population of at least 5,000 people with one full-time cop or firemen.
Pritzker would not say whether legislation was proposed in anticipation of the fall veto session in the legislature to cope with retirement issues. When this task force was announced earlier this year, a wide range provided for the police and firefighters ' unions upstairs, local police and Chicago's five state systems, and pension systems, said Hynes. "Speedy on the suburban and downstate police and fire was the best way for us to get underway," he said. "This would have done a lot, many years ago if it were easy," Hynes said, "and this is where we really focused."
CHICAGO— On Tuesday, during the second day of international demonstrations by the Extinction Revolution group, hundreds of climate change protesters camped out in central London to demand more urgent action to combat global warming. Determined demonstrators protested in front of the Transport Ministry building of the British government as a police force working to keep the roads open, calling for protestors to move to Trafalgar Square.
On Monday evening, about 200 protesters marched across downtown Chicago to demand that politicians declare a weather emergency. The party first gathered across from City Hall at the main downtown square, welcoming speakers and cheering on a student protest at the same time. Elsewhere, approximately two dozen Chicago-area teenagers dressed in all black rallied in front of Trump International Hotel and marched to City Hall, where they held an 11-minute "die-in." During the protest, the teens lied down on the ground in silence, many facing their hands, exposing phrases like "climate crisis" written in red paint.
"We've done this for 11 minutes to symbolize the 11 years we've left before the detrimental effects of climate change are imminent," said Illinois Youth Climate Strike State Leader Isabella Johnson, 17. Johnson pointed to a 2018 UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report stating that we have only 12 years left to avoid serious climate change disruption.
Originally, organizers claimed Swedish feminist Greta Thunberg, 16, would be present at the rally, but she was not there. Johnson said she and her colleagues needed legislators to recognize an environmental crisis formally and approve the Clean Energy Employment Acts of Illinois aimed at placing Illinois on a road to 100% renewable energy by 2050.
"We think like Chicago has a big say in what is going [on climate change] as one of the largest cities in the United States," Johnson said. "We're going to keep fighting before we get what we want — that's environmental justice." Once the students ended their "die-in," other demonstrators, many with the Extinction Rebellion party, started circling downtown Chicago's roads without any clear agenda, causing traffic jams.
The band was chanting, pounding sticks, and holding signs. Protesters at one level projected the emblem for Extinction Rebellion on the building faces. During the four-hour protest march, one man was arrested, but he tended to join the group when it split on Monday night. The party said they were organizing another rally for Oct. 18.

The city is ranked five out of fifty by the Tall Buildings & Urban Habitat Council. It's just another global city, New York that has more. In the new skyscraper age, too, Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper.
The Chicago Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, a non-profit organization in Chicago that monitors skyscrapers throughout the city, has listed five of the 50 most significant tall buildings over the last 50 years. There's just one other world city, New York, with six others.
The list consists of two clearly identifiable choices made by Chicago: the Willis Tower, once named 875 North Michigan Avenue, and two favors, on the shore for architectonic boating guided tours–the AMA Plaza and 333 West Wacker Drive. This contains just one high-rise, built since the turn of the century.
Which affects a large building? According to a Council that published the list coincident with its 50th anniversary this month, it "represents a significant shift of thinking or technique." With the support of its analytical staff, leaders, and members, the association has chosen the houses.
"The transformation of a high building, from a primarily commercial office tower with replicated floor plates into a" vertical city "with a mix of uses, changes in facades and different internal and outside spaces, marks a landmark in the creation of typology," says the company, on its website. The history in Chicago as an innovator for a large building goes back to 1885 when the Home Insurance Structure began on the intersection of the roads Adams and LaSalle. The tower was the first skyscraper in the country and was the first to have a steel structure on its 10-floor level. In 1931 a 45-story Art Deco tower was damaged by the earthquake.
For modern-day skyscraper, Chicago was still a pioneer, but it's not the spot where designers and construction builders take serious chances— like trying to record the high altitude. We tested the most audacious models at locations such as Shanghai and Beijing, the birthplace of the tower in the CCTV headquarters and Burj Khalifa, Dubai.
Built-in 1974, the Willis Tower of Chicago served for 24 years as the highest city. Conceived by Chicago-based Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the high-rise "standards globally for super-tall skyscrapers," which has been copied by many skyscrapers and which is a "first of its type packaged pipe design." According to the CTBUH website since that period.
Fulfilled in 1969, with its braced-tubing architectural structure the new Hancock Centre marked a major advance in super tall design. "It introduced a new and familiar systemic language vocabulary that continues today," the Council said. In contrast with the boxy, glass and steel architecture that dominates downtown Chicago today, Aqua was completed in 2009, even employing curves. The concrete balconies of the building at 225 N were viewed from a distance. Columbus Drive blends its façade to create a rip flow.

The Saddleridge fire, which created a chaotic situation in the city, has shaken the residents of the town. The fire spread to the city at a rapid pace. The fire spread on Thursday and Friday night through the north edge of the hills on the San Fernando Valley. The fire burned around 31 structures in the city.
The fire caused the closure of freeways in additional damage which ran through the city and forced thousands of residents of the town to evacuate. The fire spread randomly through the west side of Sylmar. The fire spread at a speed of 800 acres per hour and left a profound impact on the resident of the city — the light vaulted over five freeways into the Porter Ranch and Granada Hills. More than 1,000 firefighters from the different agencies are battling the fire, which is quickly spreading in the city.
Millions of them without strength. A hundred thousand were ordered to evacuate. Most of the day, the major highway through Los Angeles opened as the hills above burned.
The California wildfire season is disrupting daily life and highlighting the weaknesses of official responses to climate disasters, even in a rich and technologically advanced state.
At least three people were confirmed dead in the wildfires on the outskirts of Los Angeles on Friday.
In the Saddleridge fire in the north of the city, officials said 13 buildings had been destroyed and 18 more had been damaged. To the east of the city, 74 buildings were destroyed and 16 damaged by a fire that swept through a mobile home park in Calimesa. There were two people who died, officials said.
The fires in Los Angeles raged as electricity was restored to most of the almost 2 million people in the northern part of the state who were lost by Pacific Gas & Electric on Wednesday, seeking to prevent a repetition of the past two years when its equipment ignited devastating, damaging fires in windy weather.
The blackouts that affected areas of the San Francisco Bay Area put at risk medically vulnerable people, highlighted local officials ' lack of preparedness to support at-risk communities, and led Governor Gavin Newsom to condemn PG&E for "greed" and "poor governance."
The area has been on high alert as strong Santa Ana winds carry dry desert air to a desiccated landscape that needs only a spark to explode. Fire officials have warned that they expect more severe and destructive fires due, in part, to climate change.
No stranger to the fires that struck his Los Angeles corner, 73-year-old Edwin Bernard, but they never came this strong or near his home before.
He and his wife were among about 100,000 people forced out of their homes because of the wind-driven blaze that broke out in the San Fernando Valley on Thursday night. It extended west through the tinder-dry brush in the hilly subdivisions on the outskirts of Los Angeles, the nation's second-largest city, and was only 13 percent on Friday night.
California has seen a lot of turmoil in the city. The fire which saw the hills near California burning created a chaotic situation in the city. More than a million people of the town are without power, whereas a large quantity in hundreds of thousands has been ordered to evacuate the city. Most of the day saw distorted traffic as a significant highway remained closed for the day.
The incident has highlighted the already talked about failings of the official response of the technologically advanced states to climate response. Reports also suggested three deaths on the outskirts of the city near the wildfire scene. North of the town saw damages to 18 buildings and 13 destroyed buildings in the Saddleridge fire. The east side of the town witnessed the destruction of 74 buildings with an additional loss to 16 buildings. Two deaths were reported on the east side.

Zigarettenkippen, die auf dem Boden liegen: An 168 U-Bahn-Abgängen schätzt die Stadt die Lage als problematisch ein – und will an den Problem-Abgängen Kombi-Mülleimer aufstellen, in denen Fahrgäste Müll und Kippen separat loswerden können. Die Kosten für die Kombi-Eimer: 250.000 Euro.
Weggeworfene Kippen: Kommt der Kombi-Eimer?
Am Dienstag soll der Stadtrat im Wirtschaftsausschuss entscheiden, ob die neuen Mülleimer bringen.
Christian Vorländer, Vize-Chef der Rathaus-SPD, hatte die Mülleimer im August gefordert. Der AZ erzählt er: "Der Vorschlag der Stadt ist ein erster wichtiger Schritt."
Um dem Kippen-Problem Abhilfe zu verschaffen, hatte die Stadt im Oktober 2016 für ein Jahr Aschenbecher an einigen U-Bahn-Abgängen (etwa am Marienplatz, am Arabellapark und am Laimer Platz) testweise aufgestellt. Und hat dabei die ernüchternde Bewusstsein gewonnen: 70 Prozent der Kippen landen weiterhin auf dem Boden. Überdies waren zwei Drittel der Aschenbecher verstopft, weil sie für Müll zweckentfremdet wurden.
