New York police to Times Square tourists: call 911 if a superhero pesters you

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 00:43

People cross the road in the rain at Times Square in New YorkBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York police have begun handing out fliers to tourists in Times Square telling them that tipping the costumed superheroes and children's characters who pose for photographs is optional, and to call the 911 emergency number if they have complaints. The fliers are part of an aggressive crackdown after a string of arrests of people dressed as characters who have gotten into confrontations with tourists or police, including one dressed as Spider-Man charged last month with punching a police officer who intervened in a tipping dispute. "Tipping is optional," the fliers say in capital letters, printed in five languages in partnership with the Times Square Alliance, which promotes area businesses. "If you have any complaints, talk to a police officer or call 911." Police said they arrested three more characters on Saturday, the first day the fliers were handed out: men dressed as Spider-Man, Iron Man and Elmo.

New Mexico faces teacher shortage two days before school begins

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 00:39
By Joseph Kolb ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) - Just two days before classes resume, New Mexico's biggest school district faces a shortage of almost 200 teachers, officials say, with the majority of the unfilled positions in special education and elementary grades. With some 87,000 students due to return to Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) on Wednesday, the district is still looking for 392 staff, including 198 teachers. APS spokeswoman Johanna King said the shortages represented just a small fraction of the district's total teacher roster of around 6,300. APS will likely need short- and long-term substitutes, and it would also ask teachers to sacrifice some of their preparatory time in order to take on more classes and to have bigger class sizes.
