Equinox protest in West Hollywood over Miami Dolphins owner’s fundraiser for Trump

A Trump fundraiser in New York’s summer playground for the rich prompted a protest across the country at a West Hollywood Equinox.

The protest Friday evening came after Equinox owner Stephen Ross — also the owner of the Miami Dolphins — hosted a fundraiser for the president at his Hamptons estate.

Dozens of people gathered outside the gym Friday evening to urge a boycott of the gym and Ross’ other fitness brand, SoulCycle, Fox 11 Los Angeles reported Saturday.

“I was a member of this gym, I’m tired of them taking my money and turning around and supporting a candidate who doesn’t [support] me and my community,” a protester said, according to the station.

There were protests at other Equinox gyms across the country Friday, the station reported.

The West Hollywood protest included John Wooden who told The Los Angeles Times that he canceled his membership, saying, “This is not Republican or Democrat. Trump is a problem for the country, for the world, for humanity, for children.”

At the fundraiser Trump said he joked with Ross about the controversy, pointing out how divided the nation is, the New York Post reported.

“Steve Ross got into a little bit of trouble this week, I said, ‘Steve welcome to the world of politics!’” the paper quoted Trump as saying.

Ross regularly donates to Republicans — as well as a few Democrats — though he does not appear to have given to Trump in the past, according to FEC records.

In a statement released Wednesday Ross defended his decision to hold the fundraiser, noting that he has known Trump for 40 years.

“I always have been an active participant in the democratic process,” Ross said. “While some prefer to sit outside of the process and criticize, I prefer to engage directly and support the things I deeply care about.”

Israel kills 4 Palestinian militants carrying RPG launchers and assault rifles, Hamas denies involvement

Westlake Legal Group gaza-protests-may-2018-g2 Israel kills 4 Palestinian militants carrying RPG launchers and assault rifles, Hamas denies involvement Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox news fnc/world fnc article 13a9f6d6-9e4f-5215-97fb-89fd5629208f

Israel’s military said Saturday its troops killed four armed Palestinian militants who tried to cross the Israel-Gaza perimeter fence.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said the militants were on a “very significant attempt to attack Israel” and that they carried RPG launchers, assault rifles, grenades, and wire cutters.

He said Israeli soldiers opened fire when the militants tried to climb the fence, and that the militants returned fire before being killed. No Israelis soldiers were injured.

“The terrorists were equipped with AK-47 assault rifles, RPG grenade launchers, and hand grenades,” the Israeli army’s statement said. “The army opened fire after one of the terrorists scaled the barrier and hurled a grenade at the soldiers.”

“The terrorists were equipped with AK-47 assault rifles, RPG grenade launchers and hand grenades. The army opened fire after one of the terrorists scaled the barrier and hurled a grenade at the soldiers.”

Israeli officials claimed the “organization affiliation” of the four militants was unknown but stressed that Hamas, a Palestinian terror group controlling the Gaza strip, was “responsible and accountable for any acts of violence emanating from the Gaza Strip whether they were Hamas operatives or not Hamas operatives.”

A Hamas spokesman said the four Palestinian militants were engaging in “an individual act,” emphasizing that the operation was not planned by Hamas.

Abdel-Latif al-Qanou said Saturday that the attempted infiltration into Israel was carried out by “angry youths” who were enraged over Israel’s 12-year blockade of Gaza.

“The occupation is responsible for the state of anger and pressure inflicted on our people due to the continued siege on Gaza,” he said in a statement.

NETANYAHU SLAMS ‘VICIOUS TERRORISTS’ OVER MURDER OF SOLDIER, 19; HAMAS PRAISES ‘HEROIC OPERATION’

Israel and Hamas have agreed to an informal cease-fire in May following the worst round of clashes since the 2014 war.

Hamas has been organizing weekly protests along the Israel-Gaza frontier since March 2018 against the strip’s dire conditions following 12 years of Israeli-Egyptian blockade.

The death of four militants also comes as Israel is in mourning over the death of a 19-year-old soldier in the West Bank, with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denouncing the killing as a terror attack.

Dvir Sorek was found dead with stab wounds in the Gush Etzion region of Judea and Samaria on Thursday, the military said. He was a student at a pre-military Jewish seminary in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc, south of Jerusalem. His body was found on the side of a road near the seminary, he was neither armed nor in uniform.

It remains unclear who perpetrated the attack, but the Islamic militant group Hamas celebrated the murder.

“We salute the hero fighters, sons of our people, who carried out the heroic operation which killed a soldier of the occupation army,” Hamas said in a statement.

Typhoon Lekima strikes China’s east coast, kills at least 18

More than a dozen people have died and more than 1 million forced from their homes as Typhoon Lekima continued to batter down on China’s eastern coastline.

The deadly storm made landfall Saturday morning in Wenling, which is between Taiwan and mainland China’s financial capital Shanghai.

Lekima was initially designated a “super typhoon” but it weakened slightly before making landfall with sustained winds of 116 miles per hour.

State TV reported that at least 18 people were killed while more than 200 houses collapsed and 3,200 were damaged by the storm’s strong winds and heavy rain.

The deaths occurred in Yongjia County on the outskirts of Wenzhou, a major port city, the report said.

A fatal landslide happened when a dam broke in the region and a river that was blocked rose more than 30 feet before breaking through the debris and flooding nearby homes.

More than 1 million people were evacuated before the storm struck – which included 253,000 in Shanghai alone.

Authorities said the storm is expected to weaken further before it reaches Shanghai, but warn that major flooding is still a concern.

“Now the disaster zones are mainly in the rural-urban integration zones,” Fu Songliang, head of a rescue for Ningbo City’s fire service, told Reuters. “These are low-lying areas. When the flooding from mountainous areas converges and comes down, these areas are quite seriously affected.”

State TV said 3,023 airline flights in Shanghai, Hangzhou and other cities and some train services were canceled. Authorities in Shanghai also shut down the high-speed magnetic levitation train to Pudong International Airport.

Meanwhile, Shanghai Disneyland was shut for the day.

Raiders’ Antonio Brown threatens to quit football over new helmet: reports

Antonio Brown, the Oakland Raiders’ mercurial wide receiver, is reportedly threatening to quit football if he is not allowed to wear his old helmet, according to reports.

Brown, 31, who was traded to the Raiders by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the off-season, has worn the same type of helmet for 10 years, and reportedly wants to keep it that way, instead of using a newer-model helmet mandated by the league.

The star had a two-hour conference call with an independent arbitrator Friday, according to ESPN, to argue why he should be allowed to keep the original piece of equipment. He is said to be bothered with the vision the new helmet affords him, and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, he has field a grievance with the league.

In a cryptic Instagram post on Friday, Brown appeared to allude to the ongoing row, with a caption paraphrasing the 2002 movie “Paid in Full”.

“I love the game; I love the hustle; young-in got doe he can leave the league but if I leave will the fans still gone love me man? #paidinfull,” he wrote.

Brown has had a somewhat disruptive summer since being traded, missing a significant portion of training camp and practice in the off-season.

Earlier this week, he posted photos of the bottom of his feet to his Instagram story, showing his feet covered in dead skin and blisters. A source told ESPN that the cause of the injury appears to be the result of frostbite caused by a cryotherapy machine.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden Friday expressed his disappointment that his new wideout is missing so much time.

“I think we’re all disappointed,” Gruden said. “We think he’s disappointed. We’d like to get the party started. We’d like to get him out here. He’s a big part of the team.

Tiger Woods withdraws from tournament with oblique strain

Masters champion Tiger Woods withdrew Friday from the opening FedEx Cup playoffs event with what he described as a mild oblique strain.

It was the first time Woods has pulled out in the middle of a tournament since the Dubai Desert Classic in February 2017, two months before he had a fourth surgery on his back to fuse his lower spine.

“Due to a mild oblique strain that led to pain and stiffness, I have to withdraw from The Northern Trust,” Woods said in a statement released by the PGA Tour. “I went for treatment early Friday morning, but unfortunately I’m still unable to compete.”

Woods, playing in only his second tournament since the U.S. Open in June, opened with a 4-over 75 on a Liberty National course so soft that only one other player had a higher score. It was his second-worst score in 89 rounds in the FedEx Cup playoffs.

TIGER WOODS HAS EFFECT ON THAI SPORTS LIKE FEW OTHERS

Tiger Woods tees off on the 12th hole at the Northern Trust golf tournament at Liberty National Golf Course, Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019, in Jersey City, N.J. (AP)

He has said all year that there are days when his back doesn’t feel as limber. In March, he decided not to play the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the road to the Masters because of lingering soreness in his neck. At the PGA Championship, he played only nine holes of practice in cold weather at Bethpage Black, where he missed the cut.

Woods stopped hitting full shots on the back nine of his pro-am Wednesday at Liberty National. After his opening round, he said his back was “a little stiff, but that’s just the way it’s going to be.”

He said he is hopeful to play next week in the BMW Championship at Medinah, where he won two of his PGA Championship titles.

If he plays, Woods likely would need to move back into the top 30 in the FedEx Cup to advance to the Tour Championship, where he is the defending champion. It was last year at East Lake that he capped off his comeback from four back surgeries with his first victory in five years.

TIGER WOODS HINTS HEALTH, ‘FATHER TIME’, IS ISSUE AFTER FIRST ROUND STRUGGLES AT THE OPEN

That comeback included a busy schedule to get back among the elite in the game.

Woods had played only 17 official tournaments after his first back surgery in April 2014, and the fusion surgery was as much about quality of life as golf. His tie for sixth in the British Open last year got him back into the top 50 in the world and made him eligible for a World Golf Championship. His runner-up finish in the PGA Championship assured he could play all four FedEx Cup playoff events.

And with the Ryder Cup, he wound up playing eight times in 11 weeks, including five of the last six. Woods has said all year he would not play nearly as much. If he doesn’t make it to the Chicago area next week for the BMW Championship, he will have played just 11 times this season — five times since winning the Masters.

10 incredibly useful things you didn’t know your iPhone could do

Remember when the iPhone was first released, 11 years ago? We gazed into its sleek, glass surface. We watched the screen adjust as we rotated the phone in our hands. In an instant, the Blackberry looked quaint and old-fashioned. The smartphone era had arrived, and there was no turning back.

The magic continues each year. Tap or click here for the inside scoop about what the next iPhone due in a month or so will have in features.

There are ways to tinker with your device’s appearance and functionality – most of them unknown to the average iPhone owner. For example, tap or click here for the steps on how to have your medical and emergency contact information show up on a locked screen. It’s a smart thing to do right now.

Check out these 10 awesome ways you can customize your iPhone to your liking. Not only will they help your iPhone look better, but it will work better, too.

1. Use the hidden touchpad

There’s a secret touchpad hiding out in your keyboard. Depending on your phone or tablet, there are a couple of ways to access it. On many newer iPhones, you need to press down on any key, and you will see the keyboard become blank. Now, you can move your finger around, and the cursor will move with you.

On some iPhones and iPads, you will need to hold down on the space bar to access this mode. It’s a great way to move around in a document, or simply place your cursor somewhere specific in an email, text or note.

2. Spice up your Home and Lock screens

If you don’t want your health and emergency information showing on your phone, try a new background. Change the appearance of your screen by going to the Settings menu, then tapping Wallpaper. Tap Choose a New Wallpaper and decide if you want to use a Dynamic, Still, or Live image. Then, select the location where you want to get the new wallpaper. You can get one from Apple’s gallery, your camera roll, or download one from a website.

Finally, if you don’t like the default settings for your specially chosen image, you can change that as well. For example, if it’s a photo from your camera roll, you can slide it around and pinch to zoom in and out to frame it the way you want it.

Now, tap Set Lock Screen if you only want to change the wallpaper of the Lock screen. Select Set Home Screen to change just the Home screen. Or, select Set Both to change both the Lock screen and the Home screen wallpaper.

3. Set up an alternate appearance for Face ID

If you have an iPhone that supports Face ID, then you probably enjoy the convenience of unlocking your device just by looking at it. But it’s annoying when Face ID doesn’t recognize you. This could happen for several reasons: you’re wearing readers, or a winter hat is hugging your face. With iOS 12, you can set your iPhone to recognize an alternate appearance.

Head to Settings >> Face ID & Passcode >> Set Up an Alternate Appearance and follow the instructions to teach your iPhone to recognize your different look. Just make sure you’re wearing your eccentric apparel during the setup process, so the phone recognizes that funny hat as well.

4. Customize your notifications

Every time a text, call, or email comes through, we receive a notification on our home screen. Unless we switch it off, many apps will send us updates as well. There are other ways to receive these notifications.

Choose your own notification style by going to Settings, then Notifications, and select the app you want to change notifications for. Select from different Alerts, Banner Style, Sounds, and more.

Now, if you want to make receiving an email sound like a horn honking, or receiving a text message sound like a dog barking, you can. You can use these alerts to differentiate the various notifications, so you can decide which ones deserve immediate attention.

RELATED: 5 phone alerts you’ll wish you knew about before now

5. Grab a cool new ringtone

Everyone tends to leave the default iPhone ringtone when they could be changing it to just about anything they could ever want. Many people stick to that ringtone out of habit, or because they believe changing it is more complicated than it is.

Really, all you have to do to change your ringtone is head into Settings, then choose Sounds. From there, choose Ringtone. Select the one that best fits your personality.

If you feel like the default options just aren’t cutting it, you can always head over to the iTunes Store to buy more ringtones later, whether you snag an Ariana Grande song or a Super Mario Bros. jingle.

RELATED: Create custom ringtones with this free program.

6. Make screen time easier on your eyes

Optometrists can’t stand backlit screens, and the effects of “blue light” have sparked a lot of discussion in the eye-care community. If you find yourself staring into that bright rectangle in the dark, you may want to rethink your phone use – and, at the very least, adjust the screen, so it’s more ocular-friendly.

You can use a feature similar to Dark Mode instead, which should make your phone quite a bit easier on the eyes. Go to Settings, then General, then Accessibility. Once there, select Display Accommodations, and then Invert Colors.

From here you have two options, Smart Invert or Classic Invert. Smart Invert Colors reverses the colors of the display, except for images, media, and some apps that use dark color styles. Classic Invert Colors reverses the colors of the display.

Now you have a special way to give your eyes a rest. (Note: Rumors have it that true Dark Mode will finally be available for iPhones when iOS 13 is released later this year.)

7. Give Siri a fresh accent

Here’s a fun way to change up your interactions with your Apple gadgets. We’re all familiar with the Siri assistant’s main voice, that of an American woman. You probably already knew you could change the gender, but you can also choose from a selection of different accents. The options are American, Australian, British, Irish, and South African.

Go to Settings >> Siri & Search >> Siri Voice to check out the different sounds and choose a new accent.

8. Light up the night

Not interested in plain old notifications when it comes to texting? You can forgo sounds and badges entirely and opt for a flashing light that’ll go off instead (or even combine them all if you prefer).

Open Settings >> General >> Accessibility >> Hearing. From there, select the LED Flash for Alerts slider to on/green. Next time you get a notification, you’ll get a flashing light greeting you.

9. Set photos for incoming calls

True, you can change the names of callers when they ring your phone, but you can also change the image of the caller. You can set a full-screen photo of the person you’re getting a call from. When Mom calls, you’ll see a picture of her. If you’re feeling cheeky, you can add ridiculous photos: a call from your friend could bring up the image of Chewbacca.

Just tap the Phone icon, then Contacts, and choose the person you want to assign a photo to. Tap Edit, then Add Photo. Now, the next time they call you, you’ll be greeted with a picture.

10. Set personalized ringtones

Just like you can set certain photos for different callers, you can also opt to set custom ringtones. You can set up something funky for your best friend, or a romantic love song for your significant other.

Tap the Phone icon >> Contacts. Then tap the person whose ringtone you’re looking to change. Tap Edit and then Ringtone and select the ringtone you want to hear for that person.

You can do this for everyone in your contacts list, so you know exactly who is calling just by the ringtone. Have fun hearing your phone erupt in a customized song!

Yankees GM Brian Cashman faces swarm of cops with ‘guns drawn’ after mistaken for car thief

Brian Cashman was swarmed by a group of Connecticut police officers who drew their firearms on the Yankee general manager Friday when he was apparently mistaken for an armed car thief, The Post has learned.

The 52-year-old GM of the Bronx Bombers was driving his white Jeep Wrangler from Yankee Stadium to Connecticut after it was reported stolen last Saturday, according to team sources.

The NYPD had found his vehicle abandoned in the Bronx and returned it to him earlier this week.

Cashman was attempting to get to the Norwalk Police Department to have his car processed for evidence on Friday when he stopped at a gas station in Darien.

“And that’s when apparently the circumstances radically changed,” Cashman told The Post.

According to Cashman, Darien cops were already “responding to someone in a white Jeep that was brandishing a gun in a local doctor’s office.”

To make matters worse, when Darien police ran Cashman’s license plates, the vehicle came up stolen because “the NYPD never took me off the stolen car list,” he said.

As Cashman pulled out of the gas station as many as five patrol cars zoned in on him and between six to nine officers got out of their cars with their “guns drawn,” he said.

“They executed a very tactful interception,” Cashman said.

“They’re clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty.”

Cashman said he was told to “not make any rash movements” as he exited his Jeep.

“They searched my car, asked for my ID,” he said. “I explained what was going on.”

“They’re clearly very professional and trained and they asked me to turn my car off, exit the vehicle, walk backwards towards them…they were executing their duty.”

Cashman said the dramatic ordeal took roughly 15 minutes before he was back in his car being escorted by Darien police to the Norwalk Police Department.

“They went through their process,” Cashman said, adding that he was escorted to the police department because “it was possible I would be tripped up again” since his car was still reported stolen.

Surprisingly Cashman said “I knew exactly what I was in for” when the Darien cops closed in on him because shortly before that he got a call from Westchester County police about his stolen car.

“They called my cell while I was driving and I tripped up something on my drive up,” he said.

“They asked me if I was driving my vehicle because they got a hit on my stolen car driving up the Hudson.”

According to Cashman, he reported his Jeep stolen last Sunday morning with the Norwalk Police Department and on Tuesday the NYPD called him saying his car was found abandoned in the Bronx.

The vehicle was towed to a local auto shop where he could pick it up.

“I retrieved it on Wednesday and I called Norwalk [police],” he said.

“They wanted to process it for evidence…I told them I can get them the car Friday.”

Cashman said he’s “curious” how the car he had returned to him and even paid the towing fee for when it was still listed as stolen.

“My vehicle should have been removed [from the stolen database] before being returned to me,” he said.

“Someone did not remove it from the stolen list…it’s a mistake, but at least nothing harmful came from that.”

A law enforcement source told The Post that the NYPD should have contacted cops in Darien and alerted them that the car was found in order for the alarm to be removed.

“The alarm should’ve been removed before he received the car,” the source added.

Darien police did not return a request for comment on Friday.

Cashman said that there was a positive to his wild experience.

“The public should take encouragement when someone is in a stolen vehicle they’re not going to get very far,” he said.

“I have high respect for all law enforcement. They do an amazing job whether you’re in Connecticut and New York City — and sometimes unique circumstances can occur.”

As for Cashman’s Jeep Wrangler, “I’ve been told it’s officially off the [stolen] list.”

Missing California mother’s car found not far from where she was last seen

Investigators in California found a car Friday that they say belongs to a mother of three who has been missing for nearly a month, according to a report.

Heather Gumina Waters, 33, a resident of Pleasant Valley, east of Sacramento, was last seen July 16 driving her car in town.

Authorities said her black 2005 Infinity G35 was found in El Dorado County, which includes Pleasant Valley, but they wouldn’t specify where.

Waters had broken her collarbone a day before she went missing and had complained about being released from the hospital so soon, according to her mother.

“It is very unlike her to not contact anyone, that’s why there’s a concern for her safety right now and a concern that she had a broken collarbone,” her mother told Sacramento’s FOX 40 after the daughter went missing.

“Her children miss her terribly and it’s been a very, very painful thing for my family every day,” she added.

Most-frequently stolen cars list finds crooks like muscle cars … a lot

Well, they do make good getaway cars.

The Dodge Charger Hemi and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat took the top spots on the Highway Loss Data Institute’s (HLDI) most-frequently stolen car list for the 2016-2018 model years. The V8-powered muscle cars were five times more likely to be stolen than the average model.

The Dodge brothers were followed by the Infiniti QX50, Infiniti QX80 and GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab, while the rest of the top 20 was dominated by pickup trucks, SUVs and performance cars. All told, six Dodge models were represented on the list.

On the other end of it, the rear-wheel-drive BMW 3-Series sedan barely registered as the least-stolen car with just one theft reported during the period looked at, despite it accounting for about half of 3-Series sales, according to BMW. Second and third from the bottom were the all-wheel-drive versions of the Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X, which HDLI said was likely due to their need to be plugged into a charger, which is often located inside of a secure garage.

THIS STATE HAS THE LOWEST CAR REPAIR COSTS IN THE U.S.

One vehicle that fell from the top 20 was the Cadillac Escalade, which was previously one of the most-stolen vehicles, which led to it being equipped with several new security enhancements in 2015.

Should you keep an extra eye on your vehicle? Here’s the full top 20:
