Relationships and Social Media - Feb 15

Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day and there is no denying that in this digital age, social media has had significant impact on how we interact with and meet friends, family, colleagues and significant others. There is also plenty of controversy with some experts warning that social media can foster a sense of "faux intimacy” while others argue that it provides new opportunities for expressions of friendship and community.

Two big sections of high-speed rail line face delays

SACRAMENTO, CA. (AP) - The state agency behind California's proposed $43 billion high-speed rail line has recommended delaying the environmental impact report on segments running through two densely populated areas until at least next year.

California High-Speed Rail Authority CEO Roelof van Ark told the agency's board of directors at their Sacramento meeting Thursday that the delay is necessary due to the technical complexity of the San Francisco-to-San Jose and the Los Angeles-to-Anaheim sections of the 800-mile line.

Van Ark says one issue that must be examined is whether the trains would have to operate at reduced speeds in crowded urban areas.

The rail board in December approved a $4.3 billion proposal to begin construction of a 65-mile segment through the rural Central Valley.

The entire rail line is expected to be completed in 2020.

Taylor Budowich, 21, safely evacuated Cairo, where he was studying political science at American University.

Last Friday, Budowich watched protestors converge on Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo. He was there when tanks rolled in and saw the fire at the National Democratic Building.

"It got scary at points where I was unsure," said Budowich.

Budowich was there when tear gas cannisters were fired off.

Bill introduced to halt prison cell phone smuggling

SACRAMENTO, CA - A state lawmaker has introduced legislation calling for more frequent contraband searches of prison employees and vendors entering prisons in an effort to halt prisoners obtaining cell phones.

St. Sen. Elaine Alquist, D-Santa Clara, introduced Senate Bill 139 in the hope of limiting the amount of contraband, and more specifically cell phones, that are being found with prison inmates.

Alquist's representative reports that in 2006, 26 cell phones were found in some ofCalifornia's 33 correctional facilities, while in 2010 that number skyrocketed to 8,500.

"Prisoners with cell phones clearly pose a security threat," Alquist said. "The potential for inmates to coordinate gang-related activity, drug deals, and violent crimes is too grave of a risk to go uncontrolled."

Sacramento police look to ID man in attempted burglary

SACRAMENTO, CA - The Sacramento Police Department is sharing security camera photos of a man and car believed tied to an attempted burglary last Thursday.

Sgt. Norm Leong said a homeowner's surveillance camera system captured an image of a man in the home's backyard at the same time the homeowner's burglar alarm system sounded at 12:39 p.m.. Just before the alarm, the camera also caught an unknown silver car pulling up to the home on the 2800 block of Honeysuckle Way, the same man getting out and going into the backyard. It was assumed the alarm activation caused the man to flee.

Leong said there was a similar incident, a burglary in which the culprit entered through the window in the back of a home just one block away the same day. That crime took place between noon and 2 p.m. Police believe the crimes could be connected.
