Train Wreck and Hospital Ship
[quote]LOS ANGELES (AP) — A train engineer intentionally drove a speeding locomotive off a track at the Port of Los Angeles because he was suspicious about the presence of a Navy hospital ship docked there to help during the coronovirus crisis, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
The locomotive crashed through a series of barriers and fences before coming to rest more than 250 yards (230 meters) from the U.S. Navy Hospital Ship Mercy on Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Justice said in a release.
Nobody was hurt.
Eduardo Moreno, 44, was charged with one count of train wrecking, prosecutors said. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.
Moreno acknowledged in two separate interviews with law enforcement that he intentionally derailed and crashed the train near the Mercy, according to the criminal complaint.
“You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to,” Moreno told investigators, according to the complaint. “People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”[/quote]

RE: FCC to ban Huawei and ZTE sales
(Reuters) -The Biden administration has banned approvals of new telecommunications equipment from China’s Huawei Technologies and ZTE because they pose “an unacceptable risk” to U.S. national security.
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said on Friday it had adopted the final rules, which also bar the sale or import of equipment made by China’s surveillance equipment maker Dahua Technology Co, video surveillance firm Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co Ltd and telecoms firm Hytera Communications Corp Ltd.
Black Friday? Cyber Monday?
So … anyone on a shopping spree this go round, be it in brick and mortar stores or online?
In the earlier years of (TN)CR, we used to have threads talking about holiday gifting and shopping hauls, then lately it’s more talking about having “too much stuff.”
What’s the sentiment this year? Buying stuff for yourself? For your kids/relatives? Tuning out all the Black Friday/Cuber Monday promotions?

Thanksgiving Dinner (2022)
The above depicts my 2022 Thanksgiving dinner spread. Most likely you have noticed that there is not a whole turkey in there, but there is indeed a turkey dish in there somewhere.
I will list all the dishes later, but for now let's play a game:
- You are invited to guess which dish has turkey in it
Because dish 5 is mostly covered by the pot cover, I will remove dish 5 from the game and disclose right now that it is a fish and scallop casserole.
If you see two dishes with the same number or letter, it means they are essentially the same dish, just plated separately.
Hope you have enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner too!
