San Francisco resident blocks alleyway known for homelessness with plywood wall

A San Francisco resident recently blocked an alleyway known to be used for drug deals and defecation by the homeless with a plywood wall in the latest effort to combat the growing homelessness crisis in the city, according to reports.

“This walkway has been a burden on city resources for some time now,” the neighbor, who wished to remain anonymous, told KGO-TV in a statement. “The walkway requires multiple trips a week for power washing and city records confirm that over 100 calls were received for emergency services.”

SAN FRANCISCO HOMELESS STATS SOAR: CITY BLAMES BIG BUSINESS, RESIDENTS BLAME OFFICIALS

City records show the neighbor had permission from the San Francisco Public Works to build the wall, The San Francisco Examiner reported.

“They come in here, they pee there, they poo there. Every day,” Tom Pan, who owns a nail salon, told The Examiner. “The police cannot do anything, it’s dirty and disgusting. In the summertime on a hot day, I can’t even open my window because of the smell.”

After a few days, the blockade to what’s known as the “Ingleside Path” was removed after several complaints.

Neighbors plan to meet Wednesday to discuss putting up a gate, KGO reported.

Residents in the Clinton Park area of the city have also installed sidewalk boulders meant to keep the homeless from erecting tents.

In May, city officials braced themselves when a preliminary homeless count was released. They expected the numbers to rise and they were right. Initial data showed that it had jumped 17 percent from 2017. The double-digit growth was bad enough but then it got a whole lot worse.

When the final report was released a couple of months later, it showed the street count increase would have been 30 percent if the city had stuck to the same definition of homelessness as they had in the past. This year, San Francisco opted to use the federal definition instead of the one they wrote themselves.

Warren attacked from all sides at Dem debate; ‘Squad’ to back Sanders; Biden says focus on Trump

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your Wednesday …

Bad night for Warren: Dems attack her on debate stage, then ‘Squad’ backs Sanders
Tuesday was arguably a bad night for rising Democratic presidential co-frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren. She came under attack from all sides during Tuesday night’s presidential debate and then reports surfaced that members of “The Squad” were set to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for president. Several of the candidates during the debate in Westerville, Ohio, criticized Warren for refusing to answer whether her “Medicare for All” plan would raise taxes for the middle class. Warren once again dodged the issue, insisting only that “costs will go down” for the middle class. Click here for more on this story.

But perhaps the most disheartening news for Warren came after the debate. Reports said that at least three members of the “Squad” of far-left freshman members of Congress will endorse Sanders for president. Fox News has learned that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., will appear with Sanders on Saturday in Queens, N.Y., at a “Bernie’s Back” rally designed to generate excitement for the senator’s campaign following his recent heart attack. Rep. Ihan Omar, D-Minn., issued a statement confirming her endorsement, and CNN reported that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., will endorse Sanders as well. It was not immediately clear if Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., will endorse a candidate soon.

Biden insists he and son Hunter did nothing wrong, focus should be on Trump corruption
During Tuesday’s debate Vice President Joe Biden defiantly defended his son’s business practices overseas and vehemently denied any wrongdoing. Biden had been at the top of the crowded field for months but has come under withering assault from the White House concerning his son Hunter’s lucrative overseas business dealings.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper pressed Joe Biden on Hunter’s admission in a televised interview earlier in the day that he made a mistake by obtaining a lucrative role on the board of a Ukraine company, with no relevant expertise, while his father was vice president and handled Ukraine policy. Ultimately, the elder Biden insisted neither he nor Hunter did anything wrong and that the focus should be on President Trump.  “The fact of the matter is, this is about Trump’s corruption. That’s what we should be focused on,” he said. Click here for more on this story.

Other highlights in the debate: All of the 12 Democrats onstage backed the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Trump. In a sign of apparent disunity and hesitation among Democrats, though, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said only minutes before the debate began that there would be no vote on formally commencing the inquiry.

Sanders stood by his claim that he would provide jobs for every single American — “tens of millions of Americans” – purportedly ending unemployment in the United States. Biden, Warren, and Sanders — who is recovering from a heart attack two weeks ago —  all faced pointed questions about their age, and health and how those factors could affect their electability and potential presidency.

The simmering bad blood between rivals South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas appeared to boil over as they continued to jab at each other.  At one point, Buttigieg, who has said that O’Rourke’s gun buyback proposal could hurt Democrats appeal with moderate voters, firmly told O’Rourke: “I don’t need lessons from you on courage.”

CNN and The New York Times were widely criticized for not asking any of the 12 Democratic candidates about China during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. China has made making major headlines in recent weeks between its trade war with the United States as well as the growing tensions between the communist nation and the NBA after the Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey made a tweet in support of the Hong Kong protesters.

Doug Schoen: The fourth Democratic debate’s big winner, biggest loser and two surprise showings
According to Doug Schoen, a Fox News contributor and veteran Democratic pollster and consultant, Elizabeth Warren was still the big winner in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. In his analysis for Fox News Digital, Schoen said Warren showed she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who were looking to cut into her polling lead — and that only solidified her frontrunner status.

The biggest loser, according to Schoen, was Joe Biden, who needed to deliver a strong performance to reassure voters that he is ready for a general election fight against Trump. However, Schoen wrote, Biden was unable to break through and deliver the forceful showing that he needed, dodging a question regarding his son’s work with Ukraine and delivering several other uneven answers throughout the night.

Sen. Bernie Sanders  and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Schoen said, were two surprise winners for delivering strong performances. Click here for more of Schoen’s winners and losers from Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

6-year-old Minnesota boy vanishes after getting off school bus

Hundreds are helping in the search for a 6-year-old boy who vanished after he got off a school bus in a small town in Minnesota Tuesday afternoon.

The boy, identified only by his first name, Ethan, left the bus with his siblings north of Becker, Minn., and ran off to play with his family’s dog just after 4 p.m., the Sherburne County Sheriff’s office posted on Facebook.

WeWork says at least 1,600 phone booths in US, Canada offices contaminated with formaldehyde

Westlake Legal Group AP19287579689012 WeWork says at least 1,600 phone booths in US, Canada offices contaminated with formaldehyde Vandana Rambaran fox-news/world/world-regions/canada fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc c7868b72-a3c7-54fc-910b-b60011051622 article

WeWork, the office space sharing startup, told employees Monday that they would be closing 2,300 phone booths that are or might be contaminated with formaldehyde in offices across the U.S. and Canada.

WeWork told employees in an internal email obtained by Fox News that it had hired an outside consultant to conduct analysis and tests on a sampling of phone booths across their workspaces after a member complained of “odor and eye irritation.”

SOFTBANK SEEKING TO TAKE CONTROL OF WEWORK THROUGH FINANCING PACKAGE

The testing determined that approximately 1,600 phone booths in offices contained elevated levels of formaldehyde “caused by the manufacturer.”

Although WeWork refused to identify the manufacturer at fault, they added that “out of an abundance of caution, we are also taking approximately 700 additional phone booths out of service while we conduct more testing.”

“We are working to remove all potentially impacted phone booths as quickly as possible, and we will share updates about this situation as soon as we’re able,” the email sent to employees said.

The phone booths are used by employees and members to provide a quiet space to make phone calls and spend downtime.

Formaldehyde is a common chemical used in various building materials. Short-term exposure to elevated levels of the chemical may cause temporary nose, throat, and respiratory system irritation according to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Long-term exposure to formaldehyde has been linked to certain types of cancers.

WeWork has faced a cash crunch in recent weeks after abandoning its initial public offering last month amid tepid interest from investors worried about WeWork’s massive losses and corporate governance problems. Co-founder Adam Neumann resigned as CEO as a result of the botched IPO, but still wields influence over the company because his shares carry higher voting power.

WeWork had hoped to raise $3 billion in the IPO, which would have unlocked $6 billion in financing raised by a group of banks to fund its aggressive growth strategy.

Alaska woman gets 60 years for setting couch ablaze with boyfriend on it

An Alaska woman who poured gasoline on a couch where her boyfriend lay and set it on fire before shutting the door and fleeing the apartment will spend 60 years behind bars for first-degree murder.

Gina Virgilio, 32, sat with her face buried in her hands as Anchorage Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton announced the sentence for the 2012 death of Michael Gonzalez.

Before sentencing, Virgilio indicated to the judge that mental illness drove her to this act.

“I hate me for what I did. I can never bring him back,” Virgilio said.

Gonzalez family members gave emotional victim impact statements to the court on Oct. 4. The rest of the sentencing phase was continued to Monday.

Virgilio entered a plea deal earlier this year, and the state agreed to a sentence of 30 to 70 years. But during sentencing Monday, the state pushed for 70 years, noting circumstances of the crime warranted the higher end.

Speaking on her behalf Monday, Virgilio’s brother Reginald Carney, said she began to change after she started experimenting with drugs – everything from Oxycontin and marijuana to cocaine – at about age 20. She later graduated to intravenous meth use.

ARKANSAS WOMAN CLAIMS BROTHER FED HER ‘METH SANDWICH’

“Her brain was fried from the meth,” said Virgilio’s public defender, Craig Howard.

She lost weight, kept a distance from loved ones and once tried to kill her child. She also became obsessed with fire, Howard said.

On the night of June 7, 2012, Virgilio and Gonzalez held a party for Gonzalez’s 24th birthday. While he passed out or fell asleep on the couch early the next morning, she found a gas can and walked a quarter-mile to the nearest gas station to fill it.

Virgilio walked back to the apartment and doused the couch, the carpet in front of it and the area in front of the apartment’s only doorway with gasoline while Gonzalez slept.

She lit mail on fire and tossed it inside. When she saw Gonzalez get up and yell “hot, hot” she shut the door and fled. He died from smoke inhalation and severe burns.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

According to the charges, Van Hassel was walking his dog by a group of children having a snowball fight when he was apparently hit.

Georgia foster mom charged with murder in hot car deaths of twins, 3

A Georgia foster mom was denied bond on Tuesday after being charged with murder in last month’s hot-car deaths of 3-year-old twin girls in her care.

A magistrate rejected Claudette Foster’s request for bond, according to reports. She was being held in the local jail.

Foster surrendered on an arrest warrant Monday following an investigation by police in Hinesville, Ga., into the Sept. 29 deaths of Raelynn and Payton Keyes. She was also charged with cruelty to children, authorities said.

CALIFORNIA TODDLER DIES AFTER LEFT IN HOT CAR FOR HOURS WHILE MOTHER ALLEGEDLY DRANK WITH FRIEND, FELL ASLEEP

An autopsy determined that the girls died of heatstroke on a day when the temperature was 92, according to reports.

The car was parked in the backyard of a house that did not belong to Foster.

Police said she wasn’t at the address when the girls died, WTOC-TV reported.

“It just became who is responsible for these children and why were the children not supervised. How were they missing for such a period of time that allowed them to get into the yard and into a vehicle and then eventually pass from a heat stroke?” Detective Bryan Wolfe told the station.

Wolfe said Foster also had custody of Raelynn and Payton’s brothers, the station reported. He said the boys were returned to the custody of the biological parents after they were deemed fit by the state.

Skye Keyes said she lost custody of the four children because they were still grieving the premature death of another child, the New York Post reported two weeks ago.

Salvador Dali ‘Burning Giraffe’ etching worth $20G swiped from San Francisco gallery

A rare Salvador Dali etching estimated to be worth about $20,000 was swiped from a San Francisco art gallery Sunday in a brazen, broad daylight heist, officials said.

Surveillance video obtained by KGO shows an unidentified man casually walking away from Dennis Rae Fine Art on Sunday with the famed painter’s “Burning Giraffe” etching in his hands. As of Tuesday morning, police were still searching for the thief.

“They just popped into the gallery, probably distracting one of my co-workers,” gallery director Angela Kellett told the station. “It was our showcase item. We have a special Salvador Dali show right now and, yeah, they just ran off with it, too quick for anyone to do anything about it.”

The 1966 artwork was being displayed on an easel at the front of the gallery, according to CBS SF.

A Florida man was arrested after he allegedly raped a 10-year-old girl he met through Snapchat, investigators said.
