Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 10:56

Runners continue to run towards the finish line as an explosion erupts at the finish line of the Boston MarathonBy Daniel Lovering BOSTON (Reuters) - A friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges of hindering the investigation into the blasts in a deal with prosecutors that calls for a prison sentence of up to seven years. Dias Kadyrbayev, a 20-year-old Kazakh national, had been scheduled to go on trial next month and was facing up to 25 years in prison on charges of conspiracy and obstruction of justice for removing a backpack and other evidence from Tsarnaev’s dormitory room in the days after the bombing. Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured when two pressure-cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. Kadyrbayev also agreed to be deported from the United States as part of the agreement.

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/22/2014 - 10:55

Chloe, a nine-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, looks into the camera after tasting a dog treat sample at Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck in San FranciscoCalifornia diners can now legally enjoy a meal on a restaurant patio with their dogs in tow, under a law signed Thursday by Governor Jerry Brown that eliminates health code regulations banning restaurant owners from allowing pooches on the premises. Starting next year, California canines will be allowed to dine al fresco if they are wearing leashes or are relaxing in a carrier. "“I wish everyone ‘bone-appétit,’” quipped Democratic Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, the law's author. "Restaurateurs in California will see more businesses catering to their customers and the canine companions they love.” The new law clarifies a section of the state’s health code that banned dogs from restaurants altogether, including on outdoor patios or courtyards.
