Handyman set hidden cameras at his Client’s bathroom

Metropolitan Police arrested a handyman who installed a hidden camera in his client’s bathroom when he was doing a renovation project.

D.C police and prosecutors stated that a contractor, Eddy Giron (41) installed hidden cameras in the bathroom of an apartment in SW D.C. near the Waterfront Metro station while he was doing the apartment renovation. According to NBC Washington, the camera recorded video of the woman wearing only a t-shirt and of Giron going through the woman’s undergarments, police said.

Giron who lives in Hyattsville, Maryland, installed the camera in late June, and he moved the camera to inside a vent, beneath the sink to see the toilet in the bathroom over the course of the three days. According to the charging document.

Metropolitan Police Department Chief Robert Contee said, “It’s a very sick thing. Someone hired a contractor and when you vet your contractor, you expect them to do the work that you’ve paid them to do – not anything extra like placing a stealthy camera someplace on your property to record you in your private interactions in your home. I’m thankful that the complainant [, in this case,] was able to detect that camera,”

Giron was charged with voyeurism. Recently, DMV areas are encountering something that is not used to doing things like this home renovation project with hidden cameras.

RSV infection threats increase children hospitalization in the U.S.

There are no specific treatments for this new virus that attacks vulnerable children. Recently, RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) has been found to be showing up in 42 states in the U.S. RSV is a virus that acts like mild cold symptoms: runny nose, cough, and fever that can eventually lead to severe breathing problems for patients who have a weaker immune system.

Doctors and hospitals see the number of hospitalized patients increasing due to RSV since the Covid-19 restrictions eased in the summer of 2021. Most U.S. children who are as young as 2 years old can catch the RSV infection. If there is no remedy for the virus then what shall we do for now? The current recommendation includes getting updated flu vaccines and staying current on the Covid-19 vaccine and boosters. This RSV can spread for up to four weeks and some low-immunity persons or babies are at risk.

The problem with this virus is that anyone can be infected. From babies to those over 65 years old adults who have weak immunity.

According to PBS,

“Among U.S. kids under age 5, RSV typically leads to 58,000 hospitalizations and up to 500 deaths in a year. For adults 65 and older, RSV causes 177,000 hospitalizations and 14,000 deaths yearly. For babies, the struggle to breathe can interfere with eating. And that’s really when we start to worry,” said Dr. Melanie Kitagawa of Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, where more than 40 children have RSV.

“They’re breathing fast, breathing deep. We see them using muscles in their chest to help them breathe,” Kitagawa said. “These are kids who are having difficulty taking a bottle because their breathing is being impacted and they can’t coordinate both at once.”

If anyone gets RSV or like RSV symptoms, do not hesitate and call 911 or go to the emergency room in the hospital.

For the Covid-19 booster shot appointment, go to your pharmacy and ask for a vaccine appointment. For example, to make an appointment online, go to www.harristeeter.com/rx or call 1-866-211-5320 if you are a customer of this pharmacy.

At least a dozen coffins hanging in the air after Cemetery Building Collapse

It is the so-called Resurrection but much more troublesome. A building also operating as a cemetery collapsed in Italy, and this is the second time where a cemetery building has collapsed this year so far. After the collapse of the marble building, at least a dozen coffins were found hanging in the air bringing critics from the public. No visitors were at the cemetery at the time of the collapse on Monday, and the building had remained closed.

“The collapse was preceded by a bang and a dense cloud of dust,” said Vincenzo Santagada, a Naples councilor who has responsibility for the cemeteries. Families of the dead had a protest on Tuesday. According to The Guardian, A separate investigation is continuing after about 300 burial niches were destroyed in the collapse of a building in another area of the cemetery in January.

Is Loudoun County the Next K-Restaurant Spot?

Since K-Pop has become more famous around the world, K-Restaurants are booming all around the globe. From Korean fusion snacking restaurants to K-style bakeries located in northern Virginia, these places are crowded especially at meal times. Paris Baguette is one of them. Paris Baguette has reportedly begun searching for a business location in Loudoun County. One might expect Shilla Bakery to follow suit, as Northern Virginia is home to a big Korean population.

Korean-owned companies are prone to compete in the business field which comes from the Korean culture where competition has always been notoriously fierce, from as young as pre-schoolers to death.

Paris Baguette bakery is slightly more expensive than Shilla Bakery, but its decor is more modern, and its food, equally so. Shilla Bakery’s breads are more traditional or familiar to the generation of Koreans who grew up in the 70s and 80s, whereas Paris Baguette is more appealing to the younger generation due to its experimental nature.

That being said, as the price of living in Loudoun county is quite high, if the prices reflect this, Koreans and other K-food-loving folks might go to the cheaper stores in Centreville or Fairfax, and the stores should keep this in mind when pricing their foods. No one wants a reputation of being exceedingly highly-priced as that will drive down demand.

Hurricane Julia hits Central America

Julia made landfall in Nicaragua early Sunday morning and crossed into the eastern Pacific that night. With more than 25 confirmed death in Venezuela, Julia changed her path and status to a tropical storm from Hurricane 1, with meteorologists continuing to warn of the dangers of the storm.

Late Sunday morning, Julia lost wind intensity, and at 1 pm EDT Sunday, the sustained wind speed was down to 40 mph from 70 mph. The storm was centered roughly 15 miles south of San Salvador, El Salvador. Julia left more than two dozen people dead due to the mudslides from heavy rainfall in Venezuela last weekend.

Most of the central American countries are under siege from the torrential rains with the undeveloped infrastructures collapsing. Until Tuesday, Julia will be lingering at the thin waist of the American continent threatening with more rainfall.

The most far-reaching threats to lives and property are likely to stem from torrential rainfall in Central America. A general 8-12 inches (200-300 mm) is forecast in central and western Nicaragua, as well as part of southern Honduras and perhaps eastern El Salvador where an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 20 inches (500 mm) is anticipated. Rainfall of this magnitude will lead to major flooding of rivers, flash flooding of small streams and urban areas, and the likelihood of mudslides in mountainous terrain.

37 Preschoolers Killed from a Daycare Rampage in Thailand

An armed former police officer broke into a daycare center in northeastern Thailand on Thursday. He killed dozens of children and teachers. He fired at random people and escaped the scene. It is the deadliest rampage in the nation’s history. Police identified the suspect as 34 years old former police officer Panya Kamrap. He took his life after he killed his wife and child at home.

Police Major General Paisal Luesomboon told PPTV in an interview that he was fired from the force earlier this year because of drug-related offenses. During the attack, he used multiple weapons, a handgun, a shotgun, and a knife, Paisal added.

Most of the victims are 22 preschoolers, 2 adults, and teachers at the daycare. Thailand’s PM Prayut Chan-o-cha addresses “This shouldn’t happen,… I feel deep sadness toward the victims and their relatives,”

Police didn’t give a full breakdown of the death toll in the early stage. The motive of the crime and more details are under investigation. Drug-related crimes have been steadily climbing in most Asia countries except gun-controlled countries, South Korea, Singapore, and Japan.

Using data from several different sources, at the end of 2017, there were approximately 857 million civilian-held firearms in the world’s 230 countries and territories. Civilian firearms registration data was available for 133 countries and territories. Survey results were used to help establish total gun civilian holdings in 56 countries. The new figure is 32 percent higher than the previous estimate from 2006 when the Small Arms Survey estimated there were approximately 650 million civilian-held firearms. According to the Gunpolicy.org

After the pandemic, Firearms used extremely increased globally. In the U.S., 5 million people got guns as their first weapon during the pandemic according to USNews.com.

Micron Spends up to $100 billion for a new semiconductor factory in New York

New York Governor Kathy Hochul twittered on her account Tuesday that New York will be home to one of the largest economic development in American history. Gov. Hochul stressed that it will be built near Syracuse and that at least 50,000 jobs will be created. it will take at least the next 20 years of being built this factory.

The announcement comes after the passage of the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022, a federal law that allocates $52 billion to encourage more domestic semiconductor production. According to CNBC. This tremendous effort is being made from the semiconductors shortage under the pandemic, and because the computer chip industry had relied heavily on foreign countries. Micron CEO Sanjay Mehrotra credited this passage of the law for making the investment possible, according to the New York Times.

When the CHIPS Act became law, semiconductor conductor companies began investing more in the U.S. based including Micron. Micron pledged $40 billion through 2030 for U.S. chip manufacturing and it would create 40,000 domestic jobs. Qualcomm committed to buying an additional $4.2 billion worth of chips from the GlobalFoundries plant in New York. Intel also invests up to $100 billion in chip manufacturing in Ohio.

This big footstep in putting the semiconductor factories in New York State is a win for Chuck Schumer (D-NY). He has led the chips investment push and advocated for his state to host new facilities.
