The night sky over Snowflake, Ariz., glowed pink and purple due to ultra-violet lights from a nearby marijuana farm called Copperstate Farms, the Arizona Republic reported.

The purple glow is visible for miles, the Navajo County Facebook post on Friday said.

“The purple glow is a result of UV lights from nearby medical marijuana farm Copperstate Farms and the snow clouds overhead,” the post said.   

Last Thursday – and into Friday morning – the area received one to two inches of snow, the National Weather Service in Flagstaff reported.

Despite Trump’s warning, video appears to show Iran police firing at demonstrators

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

Iranian security forces purportedly fire live ammunition at protesters despite Trump’s warning
Videos emerged online Monday that purportedly show Iranian police and security forces firing live ammunition to disperse demonstrators protesting against the Islamic Republic after the country mistakenly downed a Ukrainian airline plane shortly after takeoff from Tehran.

There was no immediate report in Iranian state-run media on the incident near Azadi, or Freedom, Square in Tehran, but, if true, could be seen as an act of defiance against President Trump who warned the regime against the use of deadly force. Trump late Sunday tweeted in Farsi that a combination of protests and sanctions have “choked off” Iran and said Tehran will be forced to the negotiation table.

Trump insisted that he “couldn’t care less” if the regime negotiates, but he appeared to lay down non-negotiable issues that included the development of nuclear weapons and the use of deadly force against protesters. Tehran has experienced unrest after the country admitted it mistakenly fired a missile that brought down a Ukrainian airline flight out of the country’s capital, killing all 176 onboard.

Here’s what happens once the Senate gets the articles of impeachment
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed in an interview Sunday that she and fellow Democrats will soon discuss sending articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate for a trial, and defended her decision to wait weeks to do so.

Despite criticism from both Republicans and some of her fellow Democrats, Pelosi said her strategy was sound. She called a resolution introduced by Republicans — and supported by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — allowing for dismissal of the impeachment case if she failed to send the articles within 25 days a “cover-up.”

Pelosi said she will talk to Democrats at the weekly caucus meeting Tuesday “on how we proceed further.” It looks like Tuesday will be a pivotal day and Fox News’ Chad Pergram has an inside look at what could happen next. Click here for more.

Queen holding family ‘Megxit’ summit: report

Last week, Markle and Prince Harry revealed that they would be stepping back as “senior members” of the royal family and would be splitting time between the United Kingdom and North America while working to “become financially independent.” Sources told People magazine that the queen requested the high-level meeting to “talk things through” following the drama in the press after the announcement.

Philippine volcano eruption shuts down Manila’s international airport

TAGAYTAY, Philippines (AP) — Red-hot lava gushed out of a Philippine volcano Monday after a sudden eruption of ash and steam that forced villagers to flee en masse and shut down Manila’s international airport, offices and schools.

Clouds of ash blew more than 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of the Taal volcano, reaching the bustling capital, Manila, and forcing the shutdown of the country’s main airport with more than 500 flights cancelled so far.

There have been no reports of casualties or major damage from the volcano’s eruption that began Sunday.

PHILIPPINES VOLCANO BRING THREAT OF ‘VOLCANIC TSUNAMI’ AFTER ERUPTION NEAR MANILA HALTS FLIGHTS, THOUSANDS FLEE

Police reported that more than 13,000 villagers have moved to evacuation centers in the hard-hit province of Batangas and nearby Cavite province, but officials expect the number to swell with hundreds of thousands more being brought out of harm’s way.

The current evacuation numbers are likely higher since local authorities are busy helping displaced people before notifying the national agency that is collating the figures. Some residents could not move out of ash-blanketed villages due to a lack of transport and poor visibility immediately, while others are refusing to leave their homes and farms.

“We have a problem, our people are panicking due to the volcano because they want to save their livelihood, their pigs and herds of cows,” Mayor Wilson Maralit of Balete town told DZMM radio. “We’re trying to stop them from returning and warning that the volcano can explode again anytime and hit them.”

Maralit, whose town lies along the shoreline of Taal Lake surrounding the erupting volcano, appealed for troops and additional police to be deployed to stop distraught residents from sneaking back to their high-risk villages.

‘RING OF FIRE’ FURY STRIKES ALASKA, PHILIPPINES, JAPAN

Several planes stranded at the Manila airport may be allowed to take off Monday once they are cleaned of ash and authorities are sure an easterly shift in ash-laden wind away from the capital would not revert, airport general Ed Monreal told a news conference. The airport cannot accommodate incoming flights until stranded aircraft fly out and free up parking bays, he said.

President Rodrigo Duterte’s aircraft was able to land Monday, however, after his flight from his southern Davao city hometown was delayed on Sunday by the volcanic eruption, his spokesman said.

Taal had been restive for months until it suddenly rumbled back to life Sunday, blasting steam, ash and pebbles up to 10 to 15 kilometers (6 to 9 miles) into the sky, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. The lava spurting from the volcano’s vents Monday was falling into the lake surrounding the crater.

The government volcano-monitoring agency raised the danger level around Taal three notches to level 4, indicating “an imminent hazardous eruption.” Level 5, the highest, means a hazardous eruption is underway and could affect a larger area with high-risk zones that would need to be cleared of people, said Renato Solidum, who heads the institute.

Ma. Antonio Bornas, the agency’s chief volcanologist, said Taal spurted fountains of lava early Monday while its ash and steam ejections slightly eased. It’s hard to tell when the eruption would stop, she said, citing the volcano’s similar restiveness in the 1970s that lasted for about four months.

With the ashfall easing Monday morning, some residents began to shovel away inches of ash that covered everything from homes to cars and roads in Tagaytay, a popular upland resort city on a ridge that overlooks the small but picturesque volcano in the middle of a crater lake. Many of the city’s restaurants and coffee shops, however, were closed, its main road covered in volcanic ash.

Large numbers of displaced villagers worried about the homes, farms and cattle they left behind and the uncertain future they face. Irene de Claro, a mother of four, worried about her father, who stayed in their village in Agoncillo town in Batangas while the rest of the family fled in panic.

“My father is missing. We don’t know too what happened to our house because the ash was up to our knees, it was very dark and the ground was constantly shaking when we left,” de Castro told The Associated Press in a school in Lemery town in Batangas. “Most likely there’s nothing for us to return to. We’re back to zero.”

She later paused as the ground shook again.

The volcanology institute reminded the public that the small island where the volcano lies is a “permanent danger zone,” although fishing villages have existed there for years. It stressed that the “total evacuation” of people on the volcano island and lakeshore “at high risk to pyroclastic density currents and volcanic tsunami within a 14-kilometer (8.7-mile) radius from Taal.”

Authorities continue to detect swarms of earthquakes, some of them felt with rumbling sounds, and a slight inflation of portions of the 1,020-foot (311-meter) volcano, officials said and advised residents to stay indoors and wear masks and goggles outdoors.

Government work and classes in schools in a wide swath of towns and cities were suspended Monday, including in Manila, to avoid health risks posed by the ashfall. At least four Batangas towns reported power outages.

One of the world’s smallest volcanoes, Taal is among two dozen active volcanoes in the Philippines, which lies along the so-called Pacific “Ring of Fire,” a seismically active region that is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

About 20 typhoons and other major storms each year also lash the Philippines, which lies between the Pacific and the South China Sea, making it one of the world’s most disaster-prone countries.

A volcano south of the Philippine capital has sent a massive plume of ash and steam spewing miles into the sky and pushed red-hot lava out of its crater, prompting the evacuation of thousands of people and the closure of Manila’s airport.

In a matter of hours on Sunday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology raised the alert level for Taal Volcano from level 1 to 4 — level 5 being the highest. It warned that a larger “explosive eruption” could occur within hours or days.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage from the initial eruption, but authorities advised a total evacuation within a 14-kilometer (8.7-mile) radius of the volcano, which is located about 45 miles south of Manila.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, the Philippines’ disaster-response agency, said 13,000 villagers were moved away from the area to evacuation centers in Batangas and Cavite Provinces. It said nearly 25,000 people had been displaced by the eruption.

Some residents refused to leave their homes and farms, officials said, while others reportedly could not leave because of a lack of transport or poor visibility due to the thick ash, the AP says.

“Our people are panicking due to the volcano because they want to save their livelihood, their pigs and herds of cows,” Mayor Wilson Maralit of Balete town told local DZMM radio, according to the news agency. “We’re trying to stop them from returning and warning that the volcano can explode again anytime and hit them.”

The Volcanology Institute cautioned that fine ashfall could causing breathing problems, especially among young children and the elderly and advised the public in affected areas to use face masks or wet towels to protect themselves. It also advised motorists that the ash could reduce visibility and make roads slippery.

In Manila, long lines formed at shops selling face masks, with many residents no doubt remembering the 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo, about 55 miles northwest of the capital, an eruption that killed more than 350 people and blanketed the area for miles around in thick ash.

“Taal is a very small volcano, but a dangerous volcano,” Renato Solidum, the head of the Volcanology Institute, told Reuters.

Ash clouds stretched 62 miles north, forcing authorities to shut down Ninoy Aquino International Airport, causing the cancellation of more than 500 international and domestic flights, according to The Associated Press. The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines said it would also shut down an airfield at Clark Freeport Zone, home of the former U.S. air base, if ash threatened fights there.

President Rodrigo Duterte’s office ordered a halt to government work in Manila and the closure of all schools in the capital. It advised private companies to do the same.

The area immediately around Taal has been designated a “permanent danger zone.” It last erupted in 1977 and another eruption in 1911 killed an estimated 1,500 people.

Away’s Former C.E.O. Is Returning as Co-Chief

Westlake Legal Group 13awayceo3-facebookJumbo Away’s Former C.E.O. Is Returning as Co-Chief Start-ups Social Media Lululemon Athletica Inc Luggage and Packing Korey, Steph Customer Relations Away (JRSK Inc) Appointments and Executive Changes

She apologized for her management style and stepped down as chief executive. Now, she says it was a mistake to fall on her sword and is taking her job back.

Former employees of Away luggage, one of the fastest-growing retail start-ups in recent years, accused the company’s chief executive, Steph Korey, of creating a toxic culture within the company in an article published by the technology website The Verge that went viral last month.

The article included text messages that a Verge editor described on Twitter as showing Ms. Korey using the workplace messaging application Slack “as a tool to stalk and bully junior and minority employees.”

In the article, former employees — who were identified by pseudonyms — contended that Ms. Korey pushed them too hard. In one message quoted in the article, which was sent at 3 a.m., she told employees on the customer service team that they could not work from home or submit vacation requests until customer service problems she had identified were resolved. In others, she came across as passive-aggressive.

Within hours of its publication, the article had created a social media firestorm around the company, which is worth more than $1 billion in the private market with plans to go public. For a company focused on a millennial audience and a brand that seeks to evoke a sense of community, the story was viewed internally as existential.

Within 24 hours, Ms. Korey had issued a lengthy apology. “I am sincerely sorry for what I said and how I said it. It was wrong, plain and simple,” she said. “I can imagine how people felt reading those messages from the past, because I was appalled to read them myself,” she wrote. Days later, the company said that it was hiring a new chief executive and that Ms. Korey would become executive chairman.

The episode, the latest example of a fast-growing company run by young founders that has found itself in a crisis, was viewed within the insular world of start-ups as a swift fall for Ms. Korey, Away’s 31-year-old co-founder.

The new chief executive, Stuart Haselden, plans to start his job on Monday, having been recruited from Lululemon Athletica, the company famous for its leggings.

But there is one new, significant wrinkle: His title won’t be chief executive — he will be co-chief executive with Ms. Korey. She isn’t going anywhere. The company plans to announce the move on Monday morning.

“Frankly, we let some inaccurate reporting influence the timeline of a transition plan that we had,” Ms. Korey said in an interview last week. With some time and perspective, she said, the company’s board members decided to reverse themselves. “All of us said, ‘It’s not right.’”

The members of Away’s board say they feel as if they fell victim to management by Twitter mob.

The company now says it disputes The Verge’s reporting and has hired Elizabeth M. Locke, the lawyer who successfully brought a defamation case against Rolling Stone magazine for a story about a supposed gang rape at the University of Virginia. It is unclear whether Away plans to bring a lawsuit.

In a statement, The Verge said, “Steph Korey responding to our reporting by saying her behavior and comments were ‘wrong, plain and simple’ and then choosing to step down as C.E.O. speaks for itself.”

Sitting in a windowless conference room at the company’s SoHo headquarters, Ms. Korey, at one point nearly breaking down in tears, said that the month since the article was published had been a tough lesson about management — and herself. She was bombarded by criticism on Twitter and other social media platforms that she thought would put the company’s future in jeopardy.

“It’s very upsetting if suddenly total strangers tell you that you should get an abortion,” said Ms. Korey, who is pregnant. One user on Twitter wrote: “Imagine how she’ll treat that baby.”

In the moment, she said, she chose to take herself out of the chief executive role and make herself executive chairman. “I said, ‘I don’t know if the company needs a C.E.O. under fire right now,’” she said. “‘Why don’t we just accelerate our transition plan?’”

In a separate interview, Ludwig Ensthaler, a partner at the venture capital firm Global Founders Capital and the only independent director on Away’s four-member board, confirmed that it had been Ms. Korey’s decision to step down and that there was no pressure from outside investors. He added that he should not have accepted the restructuring plan she proposed in the first place.

Ms. Korey had already recruited Mr. Haselden to the company to become its chief operating officer, with the promise that, after a transition period, he would be elevated to chief executive to help take the company public. When the plan changed after the Verge article was published, she said she would become executive chairman and Mr. Haselden the chief executive. But behind the scenes, she said, she expected both of them to operate pretty much in their original roles, just with different titles. Ms. Korey’s co-founder, Jen Rubio, will remain president and chief brand officer.

“I honestly thought that people didn’t care that much about the inner workings of Away,” she said, “Who is C.E.O. and who is executive chairman — that wasn’t something that, at a private company that’s less than four years old that sells travel products, I just didn’t think would be news and people would care.”

But, she said, it quickly became clear that her plan to remain at Away — effectively in the same role but with a new title — was not understood inside or outside the company.

“The way it became perceived it was like I stepped down and like I left the company,” she said. “I have a very external-facing role working with new vendors, working with new partners, recruiting new candidates. And without a change, it looks like they have a board director reaching out to them who doesn’t work at the company.”

Mr. Haselden said in a telephone interview that the article didn’t paint Ms. Korey as the person he knew and said her original decision to step aside “was very selfless in trying to defuse the firestorm of social media.”

“But it just created a misconception that she was exiting the business, which was never the intent,” he added. Making them both co-chief executive, he said, “will clarify how we intended to operate from the beginning.” Ms. Korey said she still planned to eventually step aside after a transition period and Mr. Haselden will become the sole chief executive.

Whether the article reflected an accurate picture of the company — The Verge has since published several updates, clarifications and corrections — it is hard to judge if Ms. Korey herself has changed.

The company provided a trove of emails from employees that suggested they loved working for her. Yet even after the Verge article appeared, employees continued to leak screenshots of Away’s Slack channels to the site, suggesting that whatever changes had been made, some people inside the company remained unhappy.

Ms. Korey said she has done a lot of soul-searching since the article was published. While she maintained that it misrepresented her behavior, she said she recognized that she had made mistakes and could improve.

“When I think back on ways I’ve phrased feedback, there have been times where the word choice isn’t as thoughtful as it should have been, or the way it was framed actually wasn’t as constructive as it could have been,” she said. “Those are not, in the eyes of our leadership and the eyes of our board, terminal, unsolvable problems.”

Meghan Markle plans to move to Los Angeles only after Trump leaves office, report

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly want to make Los Angeles their new home following the announcement that they will “step back” as members of the Royal Family, but only after Donald Trump’s presidency ends.

Even though the couple plans to live in Canada, their true goal is to eventually have a home or business in Los Angeles — only after Trump leaves office, anonymous sources told the Daily Mail.

Markle, 38, has been openly critical of Trump, reportedly calling him “divisive” and misogynistic” back in 2016. The Duchess of Sussex threatened to move to Canada if he defeated Hillary Clinton back in the 2016 election, according to the outlet.

FILE – In this Tuesday Jan. 7, 2020 file photo Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex leave after visiting Canada House in London after their recent stay in Canada. In a stunning declaration, Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, said they are planning “to step back” as senior members of the royal family and “work to become financially independent.” A statement issued by the couple Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2020 also said they intend to “balance” their time between the U.K. and North America. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein, FILE)

Markle was on maternity leave during Trump’s first state visit to the United Kingdom and couldn’t make it, according to Politico. After news broke that she would miss his visit, he was asked by a Sun reporter during a pre-trip Oval Office interview back in June if he knew Markle was critical to her during his campaign, the outlet added.

“I didn’t know that, no. I didn’t know that. No, I hope she’s OK. I did not know that, no,” Trump replied.

“A lot of people moving here, so what can I say? No, I didn’t know that she was nasty,” Trump said when asked if he knew why she wasn’t “very nice” to him, according to the outlet.

AFTER PRINCE HARRY-MEGHAN MARKLE DECISION, BUCKINGHAM PALACE AID HAS ‘NEVER SEEN’ MONARCHY IN SUCH PERIL

When discussing where they want to live, Markle and Harry, 35, reportedly used the words “North American,” according to the Daily Mail. Although “it doesn’t pin them down to one place,” the outlet added.

The newspaper added the move is “by no means an immediate thing.” Markle, however, grew up in Los Angeles and her mother, Doria Ragland, still lives there, the outlet said.

White House’s ‘first snow of the year’ tweet confuses Washington, DC, residents

Westlake Legal Group EOID4CKXUAw03sO White House's 'first snow of the year' tweet confuses Washington, DC, residents fox-news/weather fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche e260d3e5-1ecf-5890-8bd3-6c420be5f9c2 article

The White House’s official Twitter handle on Sunday confused residents in Washington, D.C., when it tweeted out a nighttime photograph of the world’s most famous residence behind falling snowflakes with the caption: “First snow of the year!”

TRUMP WARNS TEHRAN NOT TO HARM PROTESTERS 

One problem: It didn’t snow in the city that day and was, in fact, unseasonably warm, with highs that nearly reached 70 degrees. So unless Disney’s Elsa made an unannounced state visit, Twitter users demanded answers.

The tweet sparked a blizzard of replies that largely mocked the administration.

Some on Twitter recalled the time that Trump insisted that Alabama was threatened by Hurricane Dorian. The issue became famous when Trump held up a map in the Oval Office showing the “cone of uncertainty” over areas the storm could hit. The map seemed to include a section of Alabama and the Florida panhandle circled with a black marker.

Newsweek said it reached out to the White House for comment and later learned that the White House shared a flickr.com page that further explained the photo used in the tweet was taken on Jan. 7, the last time it snowed in the city. The confusion appeared to be that the White House did not include the date the photo was taken in the tweet.

“It was 70 degrees today,” Bradley Moss, a national security lawyer, wrote, according to Newsweek. “There was no snow out there.”

Trump administration makes new effort to ‘reach out to the North Koreans,’ report says

The Trump administration has “reached out to the North Koreans” to ask them to resume diplomacy since the two sides broke off talks last October, White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien told Axios Sunday.

“We’ve reached out to the North Koreans and let them know that we would like to continue the negotiations in Stockholm that were last undertaken in early October,” he told the news service.

“We’ve been letting them know, through various channels, that we would like to get those [negotiations] back on track and to implement Chairman Kim’s commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” O’Brien added.

NORTH KOREA SAYS TRUMP BIRTHDAY GREETING NOT ENOUGH TO RESTART TALKS

O’Brien expressed cautious optimism North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un hasn’t yet delivered his promised “Christmas gift” — something many analysts expected would be a nuclear weapons test, Axios reported.

President Trump is hoping to build on inroads he’s made to restart the talks and reach an agreement with the North, the report said. Trump recently sent a birthday message to Kim, but the North Koreans have already said Trump’s courtship will not change their policy.

To date, Trump’s diplomacy has yielded little results besides giving Kim more time to expand his nuclear arsenal, according to analysts tracking North Korea’s supply of nuclear warheads.

John Bolton, O’Brien’s predecessor as national security adviser, recently told Axios the administration is bluffing about stopping North Korea’s nuclear ambitions and should prepare to make a public admission its policy failed badly.

O’Brien said he remains hopeful about Kim’s decision — so far — to refrain from launching a nuclear test during the Christmas and New Year timeframe.

Kim “promised to send a Christmas present. The president suggested he send him a vase. We didn’t get a vase or any other sort of Christmas gift. That appears to be positive,” O’Brien told Axios.

“All we know is we were told we were going to get a Christmas gift and the Christmas gift didn’t come. And so I think that was an encouraging sign. But, again, that doesn’t mean we won’t see some sort of test in the future,” O’Brien added.

An off-duty sheriff’s detective was struck and killed by a vehicle Sunday after she helped an elderly woman cross the street in Los Angeles Calif., Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

The accident occurred around 11 a.m. when 41-year-old Amber Leist, a 12-year veteran of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, returned to her car after assisting two people crossing the road in the Valley Village area. One of the pedestrians — a senior citizen — had fallen to the ground and Leist got out of her vehicle to help her, police added.

“While she was returning to her vehicle, she was struck by a vehicle traveling eastbound on Riverside Drive when the light had turned green,” Villanueva said at a 6 p.m. news conference on Sunday.

Leist was transported to a local area hospital where she was pronounced dead, Villanueva said. The driver reportedly stopped at the scene was cooperating with investigators.

The department was reeling from the news of her death. Villanueva said that personnel at their West Hollywood station were replaced by those from other locations so they could have a chance to mourn.

“Today the LA County Sheriff’s Department is grieving,” Villanueva said. “We are shocked and stunned by the sudden loss of a family member.”

Members of the police department would later line up and salute her body in silence, which was wrapped in the American flag and carried into a coroner marked vehicle, according to a video by the department on Twitter.

The video also showed two people hugging, surrounded by numerous officers paying tribute to Leist as her body was being taken away.

“We line up with a heavy heart to ensure the safe passage of our fallen sister, @WHDLASD Deputy Amber Leist,” the department wrote on Twitter. “Sometimes, no words are necessary.”

Villanueva said Leist “leaves behind a family and two sons. One son who is currently serving in the Navy.” He said he wants the family of Leist to know that everyone in the department will always be there for them.

“It’s a tough day for our department,” Villanueva said. “We’re going to get through this as a family.”
