New Amazon gadget puts camera in your bedroom, records your outfits

New Amazon gadget puts camera in your bedroom, records your outfits

Technology can now help us pick what clothes to wear, with Amazon introducing a new gadget yesterday that helps choose users' outfits. The $200 Echo Look -- which can also do everything that the Amazon Echo speaker does -- has a voice-controlled camera that lets users take full-body photos and videos of themselves to collect and compare outfits. An app keeps track of different outfits, and there's a 'Style Check' feature lets you choose two photos and have Alexa determine which one is better. (App users can see video here) It works by using machine-learning technology with what Amazon's describes as 'advice from fashion specialists,' with fit, color, styling, seasons and trends considered. Amazon wouldn't say who the fashion specialists are, or whether they judge users directly or just tell software what looks good. (CNN Tech)

Veteran, soldier boyfriend accused of shooting, killing therapy dog on video

A North Carolina Army veteran and her soldier boyfriend are facing animal cruelty charges after they allegedly tied her PTSD therapy dog to a tree and filmed themselves shooting and killing the animal. According to the Fayetteville Observer, Marinna Rollins, 23, and Jarren Heng, 25, laughed on video as they shot Rollins' dog, Cam, with a rifle, said Cumberland County District Attorney Clark Reaves. >> Read more trending news Rollins shot Cam, previously named Huey, in the head before firing at him multiple times, the arrest warrant said. Heng also shot the dog on video, the Observer reported. Rollins, who retired from the Army earlier this year for medical reasons, implied in an April 17 Facebook post that she had found a new home for Cam, the Observer reported. 'Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to,' she wrote, to which Heng replied, 'He's gonna have such a great new life,' according to the Observer. Bail was set for $25,000 each for the pair. Read more here.

Missing monkey spotted again in Apopka, resident says

Missing monkey spotted again in Apopka, resident says

The first sighting came in this past weekend, when a woman and her family saw it near Central and Michael Gladden boulevards.   A resident says she saw the rhesus macaque near a restaurant less than a block away from where it was originally seen.   On Sunday, a woman tried to photograph the animal, but she drove off instead when she said it charged at her and her kids.   The Central Florida Zoo deputy director said there's a big population that breed of monkey in Silver Springs in Ocala, and that the one wildlife officials are looking for could have been kicked out of its group and somehow made its way to Apopka.   Wildlife officials said anyone who comes across the monkey shouldn’t stare at it or approach it, because the animal may see it as a sign of aggression.   They also want the monkeys carry diseases like tuberculosis, hepatitis and herpes.   Anyone who spots the monkey is asked to call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

A 59-year-old Edgewater woman was pulled over late Tuesday by someone who was impersonating a police officer, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said.   The incident was reported shortly after 9:45 p.m. at Old Mission Road and West Park Avenue in Volusia County's Ambrose Hull Grant area, deputies said.   Investigators said the woman flagged down two deputies to report that she had just been pulled over by a man wearing a gray shirt embroidered with a gold oval badge and black pants.   The woman said the man told her she had a headlight out, but when she asked which one, he walked toward the front of her vehicle and said they were both working, deputies said.   She told investigators that he insisted on seeing her driver's license, but she felt uncomfortable so she drove off.   The woman told deputies that the man wasn't wearing a gun belt. She said he was driving a black sedan with a blue-and-white lights on the vehicle's roof.   Deputies weren't able to find the vehicle while searching the area.   No other details were given.
The on again off again speech by conservative author Ann Coulter is off.  Sort of.  She’s not going but she is sending her speech.  Students with the campus Young Republicans, her sponsor, say they will read the speech but it’s not clear where.  U.C. Berkely cancelled Coulters speech on campus because they were concerned about the safety, not only of Coulter but students.  Even though Coulter will not be giving her speech, a campus spokesman says they are getting ready for possible violence.
Eleven people were arrested in Orange County as part of a statewide Immigration and Customs Enforcement effort aimed at what ICE called 'criminal aliens'.   During an unnamed operation between April 18th-21,  agents rounded up and arrested 76 people state wide.   According to ICE, 57 of the suspects have felony convictions ranging from sexual battery to child sex crimes, other sex crimes, to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and drug violations.   Some were arrested on less serious charges, many of those arrested will be deported.   Immigration and Customs Enforcement said they will likely be making more arrests.
Police say Samuel Lee Hardy Jr was arrested Tuesday in connection with a February kidnapping and sexual battery in Sanford.   According to detectives, Hardy approached a 15 year old girl walking in the parking lot of a Sanford Walmart store and forced her into his vehicle at knife point. 'Hardy then drove the victim to an area near Washington Oaks, where he forced the victim to engage in sexual intercourse with him.'  Investigators said results from a sexual battery kit returned a positive identification for Hardy, who was previously sentenced to six years in prison for having sex with minors.   Records show Hardy had checked in with his probation officer just last week and is supposed to be on sex offender probation until 2025.   Hardy told detectives that he didn't remember having sex with the victim and later said it was consensual.   Wednesday, he was charged with forced sexual battery with a weapon on a victim 12 years or older, kidnapping and two counts of violation of probation.

Five highlights from President Trump’s tax plan

The Trump Administration today released the basic framework of President Trump’s tax reform plan, which would make dramatic changes in the federal tax code for both individuals and businesses, as top officials urged Congress to act swiftly on what would be the biggest reform of the tax code since a plan approved by President Reagan over thirty years ago.

What would some of those changes look like?

1. Larger standard deduction and fewer tax brackets. For many Americans, the most immediate impact of the Trump tax plan would be a larger standard deduction, which would shield more of your income from federal [More]
