Woman arrested after allegedly trying to kidnap children at Atlanta airport

ATLANTA – Police arrested a woman after she allegedly tried to kidnap two children in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport over the weekend, according to WSB-TV.

Esther Daniels, 26,  first tried to take a stroller with a child sitting in it from a mother in the atrium; the mother fended Daniels off, according to a police report.

Daniels was then seen on camera picking up another child from the same family before the father stopped her, WSB reported.

Officers responded to the scene, and Daniels allegedly ran toward another family in a “frenzied mental state,” according to WSB. She eventually calmed down enough to be taken to a hospital before being transported to the Clayton County Jail.

Daniels faces charges of kidnapping and obstructing an officer.

What does it all mean?!

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul tweeted the same photo of a pair of sepia-toned donkeys.

The photos had one word in the tweet: Soon.

Signs that they both are stubbornly pursuing a project together? Drug mules perhaps?

The internet has been lusting for the “Breaking Bad” costars to reunite, hopefully for something having to do with that hit AMC series which went off the air in 2013.

Right now most people’s money is on a “Breaking Bad” movie.

Fingers crossed yo.

Marine veteran reunited with military dog after years apart

CHICAGO — A U.S. Marine veteran from Albany Park was reunited with an old military buddy at Midway Airport Tuesday, and the wagging tail and kisses prove that absence makes the hound grow fonder.

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but 8-year-old U.S. Marine canine Atilla R7-89 still had one surprise for his old partner. The german shepherd and trained tracker worked with Marine Sgt. Jacob Varela for three years in a special operations unit.

The two formed a lasting bond, but have not seen each other since July of 2017.

“We were together for everything everywhere I went out in the field,” Varela told WGN. “If I was drinking water, he was drinking water; he’s an actual teammate.”

Military dogs do demanding and draining work, and eventually the dogs have to retire. When Sgt. Varela learned Atilla could no longer work, he wanted to adopt his old buddy. That’s where a group called Mission K-9 Rescue stepped in, doing whatever it took to bring the old partners back together.

“These dogs serve with these guys, there’s a bond that we can’t understand,” said Kristen Maurer, Mission K-9 Rescue.

When Southwest Airlines Flight 7 from Houston arrived, it was clear: this dog’s bark was worth its flight.

Sgt. Varela is now out of the Marines and is a full time student. While he’s working on a college degree, he says Atilla has earned a relaxing retirement.

‘The Office’ is leaving Netflix in 2021

Netflix is losing “The Office” in 2021. It’s a sign of how intense the streaming wars have become.

Netflix is losing “The Office” in 2021. It’s a sign of how intense the streaming wars have become.

NBC is taking back the popular sitcom to offer on its own streaming platform in January 2021, Netflix announced Tuesday on its official Twitter account.

NBC confirmed it has secured “exclusive domestic streaming rights” for all nine seasons of the series in a news release. It will be available on the company’s new service for five years.

It’s not much of a surprise that NBC wants “The Office” for itself. The show is a viewership juggernaut.

“The Office,” which debuted on NBC in 2005, was streamed for about 52 billion minutes in 2018, according to Nielsen data referenced by NBC in its news release Tuesday. In April, the show was viewed nearly twice as much as the next most-viewed program on streaming on-demand video, NBC added.

The show, which stars Steve Carell as the boss of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania, has been a staple of Netflix’s streaming arsenal. The service has had the rights to the show since 2007.

But the streaming landscape is changing now, and legacy media companies are trying to draw viewers with their own products. That has complicated things for Netflix, which built its business model on content licensed from other companies.

Last year, for example, rumors that the beloved sitcom “Friends” was leaving the service sent the internet into a frenzy. Netflix reportedly paid WarnerMedia at least $80 million for the rights to stream “Friends” this year. (WarnerMedia is the parent company of CNN.) WarnerMedia, which also owns HBO and Warner Bros., is now planning to launch its own streaming service.

Disney, meanwhile, pulled content from Netflix in advance of its own streaming debut. Its Disney+ service launches later this year.

Netflix has been preparing for the loss of many of its licensed shows. The company has spent a lot of money bulking up its own original programming.

And though the service is losing “The Office,” it’s already going after the next-best thing. Earlier this year, Netflix announced that it snagged a new show called “Space Force” that stars Carell and will be created by TV developer and producer Greg Daniels — the man who adapted “The Office” for American television.

Wayfair workers plan walkout in protest of company’s bed sales to migrant camps

Employees for the online retailer Wayfair say they plan a walkout from company headquarters Wednesday in protest of the company selling furniture to migrant detention facilities.

Employees for the online retailer Wayfair say they plan a walkout from company headquarters Wednesday in protest of the company selling furniture to migrant detention facilities.

According to a woman identifying herself as an employee of the company, Wayfair employees learned last week that an order for about $200,000 worth of bedroom furniture was placed by the global nonprofit BCFS, which operates migrant facilities for the Department of Health and Human Services. BCFS is set to open a new facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, which will accommodate about 1,600 unaccompanied minors.

More than 500 employees sent a letter Friday to senior management, asking the company to no longer do business with BCFS. They also asked Wayfair to establish a code of ethics that “empowers Wayfair and its employees to act in accordance with our core values.” CNN has seen a copy of the email sent by employees to Wayfair senior management.

“The United States government and its contractors are responsible for the detention and mistreatment of hundreds of thousands of migrants seeking asylum in our country — we want that to end,” the employees said in the letter. “We also want to be sure that Wayfair has no part in enabling, supporting, or profiting from this practice.”

Wayfair management responded in a letter to employees, also obtained by CNN, saying it still plans to do business with BCFS.

“As a retailer, it is standard practice to fulfill orders for all customers and we believe it is our business to sell to any customer who is acting within the laws of the countries within which we operate,” the Wayfair’s leadership team said in the letter. “This does not indicate support for the opinions or actions of the groups or individuals who purchase from us.”

Wayfair has not yet responded to CNN’s request for comment.

Wayfair employees announced on Twitter their plan to stage a walkout Wednesday afternoon in response to the company letter. The Wayfair employee who spoke to CNN said the walkout is “not meant as a censure on Wayfair,” but as a way to show workers’ continued concern.

They are also asking the company to donate all profits made from the sale of the furniture to RAICES, a nonprofit that reunites families at the border. That amount totals $86,000, according to the unverified Twitter account that broadcast news about the walkout on Tuesday.

News of the walkout attracted ire from other Twitter users, who expressed their displeasure with the company through the hashtag #wayfairwalkout. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat from New York, called the walkout “what solidarity looks like.”

The Trump administration has been criticized in recent days over conditions for migrant children at a Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Texas. On Monday, the Department of Health and Human Services said 250 migrant children who were held at that facility will be shifted into the agency’s shelter system.

Wayfair’s stock dropped 5% on Tuesday. Shares are up about 60% this year.

This is not the first time US businesses have been ensnared in controversy about the Trump administration’s immigration policy.

Last year, US airlines spoke out against the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that resulted in the separation of migrant children from their families. American Airlines, United Airlines and Frontier Airlines all asked the federal government not to use their planes to transport migrant children after they’re taken from their parents.

And Walmart said it was “disturbed” last year when one of its former stores in Texas was turned into a shelter for migrant children who were separated from their parents. The 250,000-square-foot facility in Brownsville became the center of national outrage over the Trump administration’s treatment of immigrants.

Wayfair workers protest contract with detention center

BOSTON (AP) — Employees at online home furnishings retailer Wayfair have planned a walkout to protest the company’s decision to sell $200,000 worth of furniture to a government contractor that runs a detention center for migrant children in Texas.

More than 500 employees at the company’s Boston headquarters signed a protest letter to executives when they found out about the contract. Wednesday’s walkout was organized when Wayfair refused to back out of the contract.

Elizabeth Good, one of the walkout’s organizers, told The Boston Globe knowing that Wayfair is profiting from what’s going on at the southern border is “pretty scary.”

Management wrote in a letter to employees that it’s standard practice to fulfill orders for any customer acting within the law.

Wayfair did not respond to several requests for comment by The Associated Press.
