Miami voters approve $400 million waterside observation tower

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 05:52
By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - A sweeping majority of Miami voters have cleared the way for a local developer to build a 1,000-foot-tall waterside tower that will feature a nightclub, bungee-jumping platform and vertical "drop ride" sending thrill-seekers plummeting 50 stories. The $400 million steel-and-concrete SkyRise tower will have an observation deck second in height in the United States only to Las Vegas' Stratosphere Tower. "The concrete itself would be enough to do a 4-foot-(wide) sidewalk from Miami to Tallahassee," a distance of almost 500 miles, said developer Jeff Berkowitz after voters approved the project by a nearly 2-to-1 margin on Tuesday. Tishman Construction, builder of both the original World Trade Center in New York and its successor complex, along with Miami-based Coastal Construction, will serve as general contractors.

California mulls bill to remove guns from potential offenders

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 05:48
A bill allowing family members to ask a judge to order firearms removed from people likely to commit gun violence advanced in California on Wednesday, one of several gun control measures up for votes in the last week of the state's legislative session. It passed the assembly once, but now goes back for a vote on amendments before heading to Democratic Governor Jerry Brown. If Brown, who has steered a centrist course on gun control legislation, signs the bill, California would be the first U.S. "Nothing can bring back the life of my son, but there are common-sense solutions that can help ensure other loved ones aren't killed by preventable gun violence," said Richard Martinez, whose son, Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez, was killed by 22-year-old Elliott Rodger in the rampage in Isla Vista in May. "This bill will save lives and spare other families from suffering the anguish we experience each day." The bill, sponsored by Assemblymembers Nancy Skinner and Das Williams, creates a so-called gun violence restraining order in the court system.
