Chicago chief financial officer Scott to step down

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 04:39
Lois Scott, Chicago's chief financial officer, said on Friday she plans to step down this month after four years on the job, making the announcement two days after she helped unveil plans to clean up the debt practices of the third-largest U.S. city. Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office said Scott will leave on May 20. "It has been a special honor serving Mayor Emanuel, a visionary mayor who believes deeply that confronting our fiscal challenges is inextricably linked to the larger economic growth and job-creation strategy for Chicago," Scott said in a statement. The financially troubled city plans to end interest-rate swaps and phase out bond restructurings in changes expected to cost more than $275 million, Chicago financial officials said on Wednesday.

Insane or evil? Trial fills in details of Colorado movie gunman Holmes

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 03:56

Accused Aurora theater gunman James Holmes listens during his arraignment in CentennialBy Keith Coffman and Daniel Wallis CENTENNIAL, Colo. (Reuters) - Harrowing accounts from survivors dominated the first week of Colorado's movie theater massacre trial, but amid the tears a much more detailed picture emerged of gunman James Holmes, his personal life, and his deadly plan.     Prosecutors seeking the death penalty for the 27-year-old former neuroscience graduate student, and his public defenders, have filled in many of the gaps left when a judge sealed much of the key evidence in the 2012 mass shooting case.     Both sides painted starkly different pictures of Holmes in Arapahoe County District Court in the Denver suburb of Centennial. In his opening statement, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler depicted Holmes as a craven killer of superior intellect who planned and carried out the massacre because of his "longstanding hatred of mankind."     Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to multiple counts of first-degree murder and attempted murder after killing 12 people and wounding 70 at a midnight screening of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises" in the Denver suburb of Aurora on July 20, 2012.     In court, Brauchler revealed that two court-appointed forensic psychiatrists had deemed that Holmes was sane at the time.

Tesla moves into batteries that store energy for homes, businesses

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 03:43

Tesla Energy batteries for businesses and utility companies are pictured providing energy for the Tesla Motors Powerwall Home Battery event in HawthorneBy Nichola Groom and Paul Lienert LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc on Thursday unveiled Tesla Energy - storage systems or batteries for homes, companies and utilities that will expand its business beyond electric vehicles and tap into a fast-growing area of the energy industry. Chief Executive Elon Musk said the company's goal was to "fundamentally change the way the world uses energy on an extreme scale." He introduced the products to a crowd of business partners and journalists at a Tesla facility near Los Angeles. In Tesla's view, such storage systems could become part of a fossil-fuel-free lifestyle in which people can have solar panels on their roof generating electricity to power their home and recharge their electric car batteries. At $3,500 for a 10kWh model, excluding inverter and installation prices, the Powerwall can be used for backup power or to store solar energy.

The comment, which was criticized by local defense attorneys, has since been taken down from Facebook and Walsh's page is not accessible. The populations of both Baltimore and Detroit are predominantly black.
