SPECTACULAR HEAVENLY SHOW

It requires three heavenly bodies to produce this cosmic spectacle---the Earth, moon, and the sun. It occurs when the moon completely blocks the light of the sun.

National Guard seizes huge fentanyl haul at border

SACRAMENTO (MNS)—The California National Guard supported counter-drug operations of the seizure of more than 1 million fentanyl pills in California recently—including more than 592,900 pills at the state’s ports of entry.

 

The seizures highlight the importance of counter-drug operations along the southern border and increased border security. The bipartisan border security deal, which is being blocked by Republicans in Congress, includes funding and new mechanisms to crack down on fentanyl trafficking.

According to Gov. Gavin Newsom, who ordered the deployment of the Guard in the interdiction, “Our increased California National Guard deployment helped federal partners seize over half a million fentanyl pills at the southern border.

 

"We’re doing our job, while Republicans in Congress drop the ball and block the bipartisan border security deal that would further crack down on fentanyl trafficking.

 

Following lobbying efforts led by the California Congressional delegation and the Newsom administration, the FY24 defense appropriations bill signed into law last week by President Biden includes an approximately $10 million increase in funding for CalGuard’s counter- narcotics operation.

 

Despite this increase, "Republicans in Congress continue to reject a bipartisan border security deal—at former President Trump’s urging—that would further boost law enforcement efforts to stop the flow of fentanyl including through new sanctions," Newson said. "The bipartisan deal would also fund over 4,300 asylum officers, 100 immigration judges, and local humanitarian efforts to support a safe and orderly process for people after they are released from federal custody so they may continue to their sponsors."

Cracking down on the smuggling of illegal drugs, Gov. Newsom last year increased the number of CalGuard service members deployed to interdict drugs at US ports of entry along the border by approximately 50 percent. The operations CalGuard supported resulted in the record seizure of 62,224 pounds of fentanyl in 2023—a 1066 percent increase since 2021.

 

CalGuard’s coordinated drug interdiction efforts in the state are funded in part by California’s $30 million investment to expand CalGuard’s work to prevent drug trafficking by transnational criminal organizations. Fentanyl is primarily smuggled into the country by US citizens.

Earlier this year, the governor joined several states in urging Congress to act on border security and humanitarian support for local communities. Newsome visited the California-Mexico border and met with President Biden and senior White House officials to discuss key issues impacting California, including immigration and border policy.

 

In support of Biden’s bilateral cooperation agreement with China on counternarcotics, Gov. Newsom spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping in October about combating the trans- national shipping of precursor chemicals used to create fentanyl.

Women in Compton, Carson out-earn male counterparts

 

Using data from the US Census Bureau, researchers at TruckInfo.net at TruckInfo.net have learned that women in the "Hub City," out earn their male counterparts. 

 

In light of Women's History Month, researchers wanted to analyze the impact women have had

on the labor force—and how well they’ve been compensated.

The report found that full-time female workers in Compton earn $3,103 more than their male co-workers—ranking it third among all cities. Put another way, women in Compton make $1.10 for every dollar a male coworker makes.

 

This makes Compton one of only 10 cities nationwide where women make more than men.

Ranking ahead of Compton, interestingly enough, is neighboring municipality, Carson, where females take home more bacon than the men annually—$42,999 to $46,186.

 

Other cities on the top list included:

At the state level, women in California make $11,685 less than their male counterparts—the 34th largest gap among states. Data was sourced from the US Census Bureau. Large cities were defined as cities with a population of over 350,000; mid-size cities with populations from 150,000-349,999; and small cities with populations under 150,000.
