Pizza Delivered At The Push Of A Button

dash(Undated)  —  There’s a new breakthrough in pizza-delivery technology.  A Colorado man has customized an Amazon Dash button to order a pizza at the push of a button.  A Dash button is a wi-fi device that lets Amazon Prime members order individual products at the push of a button.  Now, “The Verge” says an engineer named Brody Berson recently altered the code on one of those buttons so it will order pizza from Domino’s.  The report says pizza delivery at the push of a button would work for any restaurant that has an app.

 

 

Planned Parenthood in Utah to Sue Governor Over Blocked Funding

BREAKING NEWS:

SALT LAKE CITY – The Planned Parenthood Association of Utah announced it is filing legal action against Governor Herbert for stripping funding to the program.

In a press conference Monday morning, officials said they aren’t happy with Gov. Herbert.

Governor’s Statement:

Aimee Edwards, spokeswoman for Gov. Gary R. Herbert, issued the following statement:

 

“Gov. Herbert stands by his actions to cease acting as a pass-through for federal funds to Planned Parenthood. He was offended by the actions of Planned Parenthood and the callousness with which they discussed human life. The health of Utahns, especially women, remains a priority for the governor. He will continue working with the state health department, local health departments, community health centers, non-profit clinics and others to provide these important services.”

 

 

Washington County BLM Plan Changes Anger County Commissioners

blm st geo(St George, Utah)- Washington County officials are expressing outrage in regards to a recently released Bureau of Land Management draft resource management plan. The conflict results from what those officials are saying are changes to an agreement made in 2009. Officials believe the changes in the language and direction of the draft has the potential to negatively impact Washington County and perhaps even change the lifestyle of southern Utah residents. “I’m livid, angry,” Washington County commissioner Victor Iverson stated. “I think really what we’re dealing with is a complete betrayal by the [BLM] St. George field office—a betrayal of the spirit and letter of the 2009 lands bill, a betrayal of the county’s right to be a cooperating agent, and a betrayal of commonsense and good land management practices.”

Suspect Killed by Salt Lake Police

salt lake policeSALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City police shot and killed a man who they say broke into two homes and stabbed a woman. The man first broke into a home near 850 S. Roberta St. (240 East) around midnight, by crawling through a window in the room of a 2-year-old child, Det. Richard Chipping of the Salt Lake City Police Department said. The child’s parents heard the commotion and ran into the room, forcing the man out of the house and then calling 911. As an officer was taking their report, he was alerted to the fact that a man had entered another home nearby and was stabbing a woman.

“The officer went to that address and confronted the suspect and eventually shot the suspect, killing him,” Chipping explained.

The stabbing victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition. The extent of her injuries or how man times she was stabbed was unknown.

The name of the deceased man has not yet been released.

Police are investigating why he selected those two houses to break into. They say it appears to have been random.

The value of a loving family cannot be understated,” the governor said in a statement released through WCF IX.

Herbert: Sage-Grouse Decision “Federal Overreach”

Gunnison Sage Grouse(Salt Lake City, UT)  —  Governor Herbert is accusing the federal government of overreaching its powers in a sage-grouse decision made yesterday.  The governor criticized both the Interior and Agriculture departments in a statement, saying the decision fails to balance conservation and public use.  He also criticized the government’s failure to approve a state plan to help conserve the sage-grouse.  The Obama administration announced yesterday it would not put the bird on the endangered species list, but would establish buffer zones around sage-grouse habitat to limit industrial development.
