Two Plead Guilty to Rioting in Connection to May 30, 2020 Protests in Rochester ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Two people charged in connection to the May 30, 2020 protests in downtown Rochester pleaded guilty Tuesday. The protests were held in response to the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin. According to prosecutors, Shakell Sanks and Mackenzie Drechsler helped light a parked car belonging to the City of Rochester Family Crisis Intervention Team on fire around 6:00 p.m. on the evening of the protests by stuffing a piece of flaming fabric into the gas tank. They say Drechsler also set fire to a car belonging to the New York State Attorney General’s Office, then broke glass elsewhere while prosecutors claim looting took place.

Ohio Attorney General Files Lawsuit Against Google to Declare Tech Giant a Public Utility On Tuesday, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost filed a “landmark lawsuit” that asks courts to declare big tech company Google a public utility in an effort to protect Ohioans. “Google uses its dominance of internet search to steer Ohioans to Google’s own products — that’s discriminatory and anti-competitive,” Yost said in a press release. “When you own the railroad or the electric company or the cellphone tower, you have to treat everyone the same and give everybody access.” The lawsuit, which was filed in Delaware County Court, pushed for two actions against Google

[The researchers’ conclusion: Dousing lobsters with pot smoke doesn’t dull their pain.] Half-baked: Lobsters doused with pot smoke to test pain during cooking This brings new meaning to putting lobsters in the “pot.” US researchers redefined “lobster pot” after testing whether dosing the crustaceans with marijuana smoke could ease their pain as they’re being cooked. To test whether “exposing lobster to cannabis smoke” reduced their trauma, the scientists placed several store-bought Maine lobsters in a sealed box filled with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana — for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. The weed vapor was delivered in 10-second spurts every five minutes. They found that the critters’ movements noticeably slowed down, while samples taken later from their gills, claws, heart, brain and liver revealed that the lobsters did indeed absorb the THC. After removing and rinsing the lobsters, the scientists lowered them into the 118.4-degree water to see how they reacted. But the blazed crustaceans still didn’t take too kindly to being cooked, as they still “made distinct motor responses” upon contact with the boiling water, per the study. “Tail immersion resulted in a clear response of legs and claws and/or a strong flick of the tail,” wrote the scientists, adding that the latter is the “escape response of lobsters (and crayfish) and confirms the noxiousness of the stimulus.” The researchers’ conclusion: Dousing lobsters with pot smoke doesn’t dull their pain. --Lobsters doused with pot smoke to test pain during cooking --https://nypost.com/2021/06/10/lobsters-doused-with-pot-smoke-to-test-pain-during-cooking/ -RETRIEVED-Thu Jun 10 2021 19:48:05 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)
