    Man or mouse? Brawlers likely found out pretty fast Wednesday when a massive fight broke out at a California hotel near Disneyland. As many as 100 people let their fists fly, resulting in at least two people hospitalized and two taken into custody, according to authorities. Police responded just after 12:30 p.m. local time to the Cambria Hotel & Suites in Anaheim, where they immediately saw about 40 people fighting outside and another 50-60 battling inside. Authorities described the scene as “pandemonium.” “It was men and women, adults and juveniles,” Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer told the Orange County Register. “It sounds like people had broomsticks and whatever objects they could find in the hotel."

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Some Californians say they have growing concerns and worries about when their unemployment benefits will kick in. The frustration comes as the state’s Employment Development Department has been dealing with an influx of requests, and the result of that has been Americans struggling financially during this pandemic. Audrey Wolff, who works in the entertainment industry, lost her job in March and says she hasn’t received any unemployment benefits since then. “I have called daily, about 1,104 times per day,” Wolff said. “There are thousands of people that applied the same time as me, middle of March, that still have received nothing, have gotten no contact from them, haven’t been able to get through on the phones.”...

    (CNN)Could the first shots of a new Cold War be fired over teen dance videos?President Donald Trump's threat to ban the app TikTok adds up to more than a grumpy 70-something spoiling the kids' fun -- it could herald a new hi-tech iron curtain that divides the world. Silly videos of kids lip-syncing pop songs seem harmless enough. But the app's critics warn that because it is owned by a Chinese company, Beijing could force it to turn over data on millions of American users and even infiltrate US corporations. Those cybersecurity concerns are not unfounded -- Chinese law requires local companies to cooperate with government intelligence-gathering. But there's also plenty of room for skepticism over Trump's motives: Teenage trolls...
    VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — Ventura County leaders have approved the use of restraining orders and other enforcement actions against individuals and businesses who refuse to comply with local and state health orders to control the spread of the coronavirus. The decision at a special meeting Tuesday of the Board of Supervisors gave County Counsel Leroy Smith discretion to seek court enforcement of health mandates, the Ventura County Star reported.

Meanwhile in neighboring Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a crackdown Wednesday on house parties that have brought hundreds of people together despite health orders banning...
    More than 500 inmates in an Arizona prison contracted coronavirus, nearly half the population in that prison, while deaths in another prison in California increased this week to 22. The Arizona prison authority (western USA) reported Tuesday that “517 inmates of the ASPC-Tucson Whetstone unit tested positive for covid-19,” according to a statement. “Inmates who tested positive are currently housed in separate areas and receiving appropriate medical care,” the text added. “They will not be allowed to return to the general population until they have received physician approval.” Arizona has more than 180,000 cases, of which 1,429 are in its penal centers. Seven prisoners have died, a much lower number than the 51 reported by California, 22 in their San...
    SACRAMENTO (AP) — With the coronavirus spreading faster than public health officials can track it, California could become one of the first states to mandate that businesses notify workers and state officials any time an employee has been exposed to the disease. A bill moving through the state’s Democratic-controlled state Legislature would require companies to notify people no later than 24 hours after they knew or should have known about an employee’s exposure to the virus. Violators could be charged with a crime and fined $10,000. California law already requires companies to report deaths and serious incidents that occur in the workplace, but it’s only recommended that they report infections, according to Assemblywoman Eloise Gomez Reyes, a Democrat from Grand...

    By DON THOMPSON | The Associated Press SACRAMENTO — California prosecutors on Tuesday asked the NFL to remove a video produced as part of the league’s Inspire Change campaign, saying it misrepresents the circumstances leading to the fatal shooting of a Black man in 2018. The video shows Sequette Clark speaking about the death of her son, Stephon Clark, who was killed in the backyard of his grandparents’ home. The shooting led to weeks of protests in Sacramento and across the nation, sometimes disrupting games by the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. “Though well-intentioned, the video performs a disservice instead of a public service by omitting the crucial facts which preceded Mr. Clark’s tragic death,” California District Attorneys Association president Vern Pierson...

    There are growing glimmers of hope that California’s surge in coronavirus cases could be peaking — but don’t expect the pandemic-shattered economy to share much of this progress in the short term. A Los Angeles Times analysis found that California has now experienced its first weekly reduction in new confirmed coronavirus cases for the first time in 12 weeks. For the seven-day period that ended Sunday, California reported 59,697 new coronavirus cases, a drop of 9% from the previous week of 65,634 cases, which was a pandemic record. If the trends continue, it would mark a turning point after weeks of record hospitalizations that began in mid-June, the result of California starting to rapidly reopen the economy in May. ...
    For more than year, state officials and community groups in California have pushed a singular message: the importance of filling out the decennial count. Organizations canvassed neighborhoods, and hosted rallies and information sessions where they explained how census data turns into federal dollars that trickle down to cities and states. After the coronavirus pandemic wiped out the chance to gather in person, they started phone banks and honed social media campaigns. Those efforts, officials said, have achieved some of the best results in the country in getting the hardest-to-count communities to respond — of the estimated 3.5 million to 4.1 million households in that category, some 2 million have replied — although there is still work to be done...

Ultimately, neither was the legendary Big One – as the Great Earthquake is called – a catastrophic earthquake that could occur along the San Andrés fault and that geologists have warned is likely “behind.” .
