(AP) — In the six years since he resettled in the United States from Afghanistan, the primary suspect in the slayings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque has been arrested several times for domestic violence and captured on camera slashing the tires of a woman's car, according to police and court records. The lengthy pattern of violence — which began not long after Muhammad Syed arrived in the states — has shocked members of the city’s small, close-knit Muslim community, some of whom knew him from the local mosque and who initially had assumed the killer was an outsider with a bias against the Islamic religion. Now, they are coming to terms with the idea that they never really understood the man. “I think based on knowing his history now — and we didn’t before — he’s obviously a disturbed individual. He obviously has a violent tendency,” said Ahmad Assed, … [Read more...] about Suspect in 4 New Mexico killings left trail of violence

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 Coca-Cola touts its global presence with ads that show off its eponymous signature product, known as Coke, in nearly every corner of the world. But the soft-focus glimpses of joy from assorted cultures don’t let on that the formula for the beverage sometimes changes from country to country. Most famously, Mexican Coke and domestically produced Coke products in the U.S. differ in a very major way that, according to some, affects the flavor of the drink. Taco shop snobs, food-savvy writers and Instagram over-sharers all make noise that the Mexican version of Coke is superior to the standard American soda, paying a premium for the aesthetics and taste of the imported version. Other people simply crave the nostalgic taste of the version of the ubiquitous soft drink that they grew up with or prefer the Mexican style for health reasons—scientifically backed or not—and choose to avoid the … [Read more...] about Mexican Coke vs. American Coke, explained
An obnoxious reality where travel is involved, tourists taxes actually serve a pretty important purpose. For the uninitiated, tourists taxes are small fees levied on travelers, usually by way of accommodations, to help mitigate the effects of tourism and, more importantly, help curb overtourism. Which is why it should come as a surprise to none that the most expensive city in the world when it comes to tourist taxes is none other than Honolulu. Per new data from Money.co.uk , the Hawaiian capital is number one when it comes to premium tourist taxes, costing travelers roughly $361.93 for a seven night stay, or $51.70 a night. That’s because, on top of the 10.25% “transient accommodations tax” (TOT) Hawaii charges, the city of Honolulu has added a 3% surcharge. In second place comes San Francisco, which, too, charges a large TOT of 14% on stays under 30 days. Those looking to stay for seven nights in the Bay Area can plan to pay $207.29 in tourist tax alone, per room, or … [Read more...] about Which US City Has the Highest Taxes For Tourists?
The state Supreme Court says apartment owners in Oakland can challenge a waste-hauling fee that was passed along to them after the city negotiated it with garbage-collection companies. Though the case is not over, the ruling could be a first step toward substantial court-ordered refunds in many California cities and counties if the fees are found to be illegal tax increases. Oakland and its trash collector, Waste Management of Alameda County, first agreed on the fee, initially $25 million, in 2013 as a price for the company to use city streets and pick up and dispose of solid wastes. The city later reached a separate $3 million annual contract with another company, California Waste Solutions, for recycling. Similar fees for trash collection and a variety of other services have been approved by local governments across the state, which classify them as payments for exclusive franchises to do business on streets and other public property. But a suit by apartment owners in Oakland … [Read more...] about Oakland apartment owners can challenge trash collection fee, state Supreme Court rules

The move by Arizona comes without explicit permission on federal land, with state contractors starting to move in 60-foot-long (18.3-meter-long) shipping containers and stacking two of the 9-foot-tall (2.7-meter-tall) containers on top of each other early Friday. They plan to complete the job within days, and the containers will be topped with 4 feet (1.2 meters) of razor wire, said Katie Ratlief, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey’s deputy chief of staff. The state plans to fill three gaps in the border wall constructed during former President Donald Trump's tenure in the … [Read more...] about Arizona won’t wait for feds, starts filling border wall gaps
