Angela Charlton and Kirsten Grieshaber Associated Press Published 1:41 PM EDT Jul 25, 2019 Paris – Even ice cream, Italian gelato or Popsicles couldn’t help this time. Temperature records that had stood for decades or even just days fell minute by minute Thursday afternoon and Europeans and tourists alike jumped into fountains, lakes, rivers or the sea to escape a suffocating heat wave rising up from the Sahara. On a day that no one on the continent will ever forget, two potential drug dealers in Belgium even called the police, begging to be rescued from the locked container they managed to get themselves trapped in. It was nearly impossible to keep up with the falling records as temperatures climbed higher and higher under a brutal sun – in Paris and London, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands – all places where air conditioning is not typically installed in homes, cafes or stores. Even office air conditioning systems strained under the hot, dry air that … [Read more...] about Europe melts under Sahara heat wave, smashes heat records

By Eric Licas | [email protected] and Alma Fausto | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: April 16, 2019 at 9:39 pm | UPDATED: April 18, 2019 at 12:27 pm An Anaheim man was in custody Wednesday, April 17, after investigators said he went on a nine-minute crime spree against people he apparently didn’t know the evening before in Lake Forest – leaving two women hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. One victim had run along a street to lure the knife-wielding suspect away from her daughters, and was then stabbed, sheriff’s officials said. Another, just walking along the sidewalk, was struck by a car he allegedly had just stolen. “This does not appear to be a calculated event,” said Orange County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Chad Taylor. “It appears to be pretty random.” The suspect, James Carlos Melendrez, 25, of Anaheim, was booked into the Orange County Jail on suspicion of two counts of attempted murder, carjacking and … [Read more...] about Anaheim man arrested after random Lake Forest stabbing, carjacking and hit-and-run spree leaves 2 women injured
Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Mar 24, 2019 Once spring arrives, eating habits and ingredients change. Out go the comfort-food dinners that include long-cooking roasts, simmering soups and stews. Spring signals the arrival of vegetables that are lighter but equally satisfying. Asparagus has long been considered a harbinger of spring. Though Michigan-grown asparagus won't show up for a while, asparagus from elsewhere is being displayed prominently now at grocery stores and farmers markets. Most of the asparagus in stores now is on the thin side, which makes it ideal for quick cooking. Pairing it with broiled fish makes for a time-saving meal that's big on flavor. Today's recipe is adapted from the Food Network Magazine. The original recipe called for grilling red snapper and the asparagus. I opted for the broiler for both fish and asparagus. Though grilled asparagus is great, the pencil-thin pieces I was working … [Read more...] about Easy spring recipe calls for broiling fish, asparagus together
