Washington state man sentenced to 10 years for torching gay club

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 05:10
By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - A Washington state man was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Thursday for setting fire to a popular Seattle gay nightclub packed with New Year's Eve revelers. No one was badly hurt in the Dec. 31, 2013, attack on Neighbors, a decades-old establishment filled with 750 people when Musab Mohammed Masmari, 30, doused a carpeted stairway with gasoline and set it alight. He was never charged with a hate crime in connection with the incident, but prosecutors maintained his actions were driven by bias. "Motivated by ignorance and intolerance, this defendant put more than 700 lives at risk when he purposely started a fire at a crowded nightclub on New Year's Eve," U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan said in a statement.

California's proposed 2015 Obamacare premiums to rise 4 percent in 2015

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 05:01
Healthcare premiums will rise an average of 4.2 percent in 2015 on California's health insurance exchange, the largest of the state marketplaces established by President Barack Obama's healthcare reform, state officials said on Thursday. Ten companies will sell plans for 2015 through Covered California, three fewer than this year, said the exchange's Executive Director Peter Lee. Opponents of Obama's healthcare reform, the 2010 Affordable Care Act, have warned for months that 2015 premiums would soar due to the high medical costs of the first wave of enrollees who, they claimed, are older and sicker than the general population. In California, however, insurers' projections of 2014 medical spending were fairly accurate.

In the souped-up world of San Francisco real estate, where the median selling price for homes and condominiums hit seven figures for the first time last month, the cool million that would fetch a mansion on a few acres elsewhere will now barely cover the cost of an 800-square-foot starter home.

That's what $ 1 million will buy you in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa.
