Marlins-Mets game postponed due to unplayable field conditions; teams will play doubleheader Wednesday

South Florida Local News - Tue, 09/26/2023 - 17:36


NEW YORK — The series opener between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets was postponed Tuesday night because of unplayable field conditions caused by Tropical Storm Ophelia.

The game will be made up Wednesday as part of a single-admission doubleheader beginning at 4:10 p.m.

It’s a crucial series for Miami, which began the day one game out of a National League playoff spot with six to play. The Mets are eliminated from postseason contention.

Three straight days of rain in New York left the Citi Field infield a soggy mess when the showers finally subsided late Tuesday afternoon and the tarp was removed.

Members of the Mets’ grounds crew worked for about three hours attempting to dry and smooth the infield and get the surface in playing shape. A message on the scoreboard long before the scheduled 7:10 p.m. start alerted fans the game would be delayed, and another message read: “Tropical Storm Ophelia brought heavy precipitation to the area. We are trying to make the field conditions playable.”

Major League Baseball representatives huddled on the field with Marlins general manager Kim Ng, manager Skip Schumaker, Mets manager Buck Showalter and others at 6 p.m. and then again at 8 p.m.

Approximately 20 minutes later came an announcement that the game was postponed and rescheduled for Wednesday.

Defense asks judge to dismiss double murder case against YNW Melly

South Florida Local News - Tue, 09/26/2023 - 17:12

Defense lawyers in the YNW Melly double murder case are demanding a dismissal of the charges, accusing prosecutors of withholding incriminating information about their lead detective.

Over the summer, attorneys for the rapper, whose real name is Jamell Demons, filed a complaint against Miramar Police Detective Mark Moretti, accusing him of forcibly taking a cell phone belonging to Demons’ mother while he was questioning her in connection with the case at the Broward courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale in October 2022.

According to the defense, Moretti was outside his jurisdiction when he executed a search warrant for the phone, “willing to lie as to who served the search warrant” to cover his tracks, and “willing to conspire” with a Broward Sheriff’s deputy who was not in the room when the phone was seized.

That summary was based on a statement given by Assistant State Attorney Michele Boutros, who was in the room. According to Boutros, Moretti told Sheriff’s Deputy Adam Gorel to say he was in the room when the warrant was executed. “I can be if you needed me to be,” Gorel replied.

The exchange, Moretti later told prosecutors, was intended as a joke. In his official report on the incident, Moretti wrote that he was in the room with Demons’ mother (Jamie King), Boutros and King’s lawyer, Robert Trachman.

The search warrant identified King as the person being investigated for witness tampering. Investigators believed she was helping her son hide incriminating evidence in his murder case. Demons is accused of two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of fellow rappers Christopher “YNW Juvy” Thomas and Anthony “YNW Sakchaser” Williams.

King was never charged with witness tampering. The cell phone records included a host of text messages that were introduced at Demons’ trial, which ended in a hung jury. His retrial is scheduled to begin in October.

Demons is due in court Wednesday morning. The rapper faces the death penalty if convicted.

Rabid river otter attacked man who was feeding ducks and then a 70-pound dog

South Florida Local News - Tue, 09/26/2023 - 16:53

A Jupiter man was out by a pond feeding ducks on Wednesday morning last week, something he typically does. But as he turned his back to the water to walk to his home, he heard something startle the ducks.

A 3-year-old river otter that was infected with rabies had emerged from the water onto the bank.

“He began to back up slowly still facing the otter,” a case report from Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control said. “That is when the otter went and attacked him for several minutes.”

After attacking the man, the rabid otter attacked a pet dog before it was trapped in someone’s driveway in the 100 block of Florida Avenue, across the pond from where the man was attacked.

The man was treated at Jupiter Medical Center for bites to his arms and legs. At the time of the report, the dog’s owner took the animal to a veterinarian, leaving animal control officials without any information about the attack.

David Walesky, assistant director of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, said Tuesday evening that the 12-year-old male dog weighed about 70 pounds and was attacked while being walked by the owner.

The dog was vaccinated and had one bite on its nose, Walesky said. Officials recommended a booster vaccine and that the owner quarantine the dog at home for 45 days.

When an animal control officer arrived at the home on Florida Avenue, a Jupiter Police Department officer was watching over a rattling recycling bin containing the trapped otter, held down by two cinder blocks on top, the report said. The animal control officer captured the otter with a net and put it in a carrier.

“The animal was showing signs that were abnormal,” the report said. “The animal was hyperactive and then down. In the transfer carrier, it bared teeth and was biting the metal.”

Walesky said the otter was euthanized and its brain was sent for testing. The results came back Saturday, confirming it was infected with rabies, he said. The Palm Beach County Department of Health issued a statement Monday confirming the testing results and warned residents in the area to avoid contact with any wild animals, including stray cats.

“For Palm Beach County, we have not seen a confirmed positive rabies in an otter since 2010,” Walesky said. “We’ve seen it in other animals, but we’re in a low period right now to where actually our most recent rabies case besides this one was almost two years ago.”

River otters are found throughout the state, except for the Keys, and the largely nocturnal animals prefer freshwater areas, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. They live in burrows on the water banks.

The predominant sources of rabies from wildlife in Florida are raccoons and bats, according to the Florida Department of Health, with outdoor cats the most common domestic animal found with the viral disease. The disease is spread through an infected animal’s bite and is deadly to humans and other mammals.

“Animals with rabies may show strange behavior — they can be aggressive, attacking for no apparent reason, or act very tame (especially wild animals),” the health department says in its informational page on the disease.

Palm Beach County Health Department officials offered the following advice in their statement Monday:

  • Keep rabies vaccinations updated for all pets.
  • Supervise pets so they don’t make contact with wildlife.
  • Seek medical and veterinarian care immediately if bitten by wildlife.
  • Do not handle or feed wild animals or attract them with unsecured garbage cans.
  • Never adopt or bring wild animals into your home.
  • Teach children not to handle wild or unfamiliar domestic animals.
  • Prevent bats from getting inside.

With cyberattacks on the rise, these WPA3 routers will help keep your home internet secure

South Florida Local News - Mon, 09/25/2023 - 23:20
 The importance of keeping your home network secure

With the rise in frequency and sophistication of cyberattacks, you don’t even have to leave your home to be the victim of crime. If unscrupulous individuals gain access to your home network, every device on that network becomes vulnerable. WPA3 offers the most up-to-date wireless encryption protocol.

What is a router?

A router lets you connect all of your devices to the internet while you’re at home. It sends information to and from all your computers, phones, tablets and other smart devices. In short, any gadget that doesn’t use cellular data uses a router to connect to the internet.

What can someone do if they hack into your home network?

When someone hacks into your home network, they can eavesdrop on everything you do digitally. They can see which services you’re using and when you’re using them and monitor every bit of unencrypted information you transmit. This includes your name, address, phone number and other personal information, as well as passwords, financial information and more.

How can a WPA3 router protect your home network?

Since all information to and from the internet must pass through your home router, it serves as a gatekeeper that blocks external information requests. WPA3 stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access 3. It’s the best security protocol currently available for your home network. It creates a secure handshake between devices, offers individualized data encryption and protects against offline password guesses.

13 products to improve working from home

South Florida Local News - Mon, 09/25/2023 - 23:15

Working from home has become a way of life, at least part-time, for many of us. And yet, some folks are still working from kitchen tables and couches that, while practical in a pinch, are a far cry from the long-term solutions they need to maintain high levels of productivity. Fear not, though: there are plenty of products that make working from home more enjoyable, many of which are clever solutions to everyday problems.

Work-from-home essentials

Secretlab Titan Evo ]

There’s an old saying by John Wildsmith that goes, “You are either in your bed or your shoes, so it pays to invest in both.” While you may spend eight hours in each of those, you’re likely spending the remaining eight hours of the day in some type of seat doing work. Instead of simply upgrading to an ergonomic office chair, take a hint from the pros — professional gamers, that is — with a next-level option. Secretlab is known for their premium gaming chairs. Their ergonomic designs are supportive, comfortable and have curb appeal. This design features an adaptive lumbar support system and a retooled seat with enhanced support. The Titan Evo is all business, but when you need to take five, it reclines to 165 degrees and has a gel-filled head pillow. Hey, those gamers were onto something.

Logitech Ergo Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard ]

Today’s keyboards haven’t changed too much from typewriters of yesteryear since they still have tight rows of keys in the same layout. They can kind of cramp your style, literally, by leaving you with sore hands and wrists after long periods of typing. Logitech presents a viable alternative: an ergonomic keyboard with a split layout that places hands and wrists in more comfortable positions. The modern design, which features a wrist rest and adjustable palm lift, promises 54% more support to mitigate fatigue, aches and pains. Hands down, it might be one of the best investments you can make in office ergonomics.

Foxemart Modern Computer Desk ]

Kitchen tables and lap desks aren’t ideal home office setups because you need to pack and unpack your office setup twice a day. It’s a tiresome, tedious activity, but for those short on space, it’s just part and parcel of working from home. A peaceful alternative to the dreaded daily shuffle is a permanent workstation, like this Foxemart computer desk. It’s available in four lengths, including a space-optimizing 32-inch design. It’s a relatively durable desk for the price, and it even has a waterproof desktop that wards off coffee ring stains — and that alone is worth the investment.

Razer Kiyo Streaming Webcam ]

It’s easy to feel underserved by a low-quality webcam that turns you into a grainy apparition, or whose microphone picks up peculiar white noise. Basically, you need a webcam that won’t make you seem like a character from a Stephen King novel during Zoom calls. Instead of shelling out big bucks for both a selfie ring light and a webcam, pick up Razer’s 2-in-1 Kiyo Streaming Webcam. It has a daylight-balanced ring light around the camera to offer true-to-life illumination without washing you out. The microphone picks up quality sound when you’re not using headphones or earbuds, and the compact design makes the Kiyo ideal for on-the-go use.

Phive CL-1 LED Architect Desk Lamp ]

Floor and desk lamps are so last year, not to mention they tend to have large footprints that monopolize valuable space on desks. Overhead lighting works sometimes, but still, it leaves you in the shadows when you need direct light over your workspace. We have no choice but to spotlight this ultra-modern architect LED clamp lamp, which is currently a Best Bang for the Buck selection. Its sleek, slender design reaches overhead with a rotating body and 180-degree swivel head. The LED lamp adjusts between 15% and 100% brightness and even has programmable memory functions so your optimal brightness level is easily accessible. We’re giving it bonus points for futuristic curb appeal.

Bluelounge CableBox Cable and Cord Management System ]

If your wires and power cords look like a snake pit from an Indiana Jones movie, it’s time to find a better solution. While zip ties are one way to keep cables organized, they’re not the most aesthetically pleasing way to handle the situation. A cable management system, such as this Bluelounge box, makes quick work of hiding the eyesore on the floor (or your desk). The box holds several cords and long surge protectors, and once it’s in use, it’s shocking to see how much space it frees up. Made with flame-retardant materials, it’s also one of the safer options on the market.

Instant Pot Duo ]

Many professionals have embraced the convenience of Instant Pots because they take the hard work out of cooking on busy days. Lauded as appliances consumers didn’t know they needed so badly, they’ve become something of a work-from-home lifestyle essential. The Instant Pot truly lives up to its name, considering it cooks food nearly 70% faster than traditional cooking methods. One of the bestselling models, the Instant Pot Duo, is feature-rich with 13 one-touch programs that include stew-, yogurt- and rice-making. You can “set it and forget it,” leaving more time to focus on workflows and spreadsheets instead. Breakfast, lunch and dinner have never been easier—or more enjoyable.

VIVO Dual Monitor Stand ]

There is a pivotal moment in a WFH professional’s life when they realize that two monitors are better than one. It’s infinitely easier to manage digital workspaces when you can keep Slack and email on one screen while you work on the other. Traditional monitor stands, however, are too bulky for many desks. Instead, this dual monitor stand is a space-savvy alternative. The arms, which fit monitors up to 27 inches, offer 90 degrees of tilt, 180 degrees of swivel and 360 degrees of rotation. As a result, you can customize your monitor arrangement to achieve the NORAD-style setup you’ve always dreamed of. Best of all, because it’s a desk-mounted apparatus, there won’t be any banging or drilling into walls for installation.

Lockways Magnetic Dry Erase Board ]

For many people, brainstorming and story mapping are essential to project development. Good ideas arrive quickly, and if you don’t get them down on paper soon, they’re gone forever. If you’re still using legal pads or notebooks, we don’t need to tell you they’re rather limiting. And let’s face it: you need a wide berth when you get a good idea. A whiteboard, on the other hand, is the tabula rasa you’ve been looking for. This Lockaways model is 36 by 24 inches and offers plenty of space to write, draw, map or just doodle. The whiteboard functions as a screen-free and distraction-free brainstorming space, and for those who need a mini digital detox to get some deep thinking done, it’s a smart investment in basic productivity.

Yeti Rambler Tumbler ]

Ever make a cup of coffee and don’t get a chance to drink it because of a Zoom meeting that runs longer than it should? By the time you get to it, it’s stone-cold, and we all know that cold coffee kills productivity. Swap your porcelain mug for YETI’s 20-ounce Rambler, an insulated tumbler that promises to keep coffee hot for hours at a time. The rugged design also happens to be low-maintenance because it’s dishwasher-safe and has a fingerprint-resistant coating. It’s heavier than most tumblers, so it might be harder to knock over and fry your keyboard. And that’s the kind of risk-averse product we all need to have as avid coffee drinkers.

TP-Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Power Strip ]

Smart home devices are popular investments for work-from-home professionals, mostly because they add convenience where it’s most needed. While they’re much cheaper than they used to be, investing in a couple of smart products can cost you several hundred dollars. On the other hand, you can make your existing electronics work smarter, not harder, with this budget-friendly smart power strip. It features six individually controlled smart outlets for easy hands-free control over all your desk devices through Alexa, Google Assistant or Cortana. It displays energy consumption in the Kasa Smart app, a feature that may pay dividends if you’re looking to monitor consumption to save on energy bills. So if you have a burning desire to turn on your desk fan without lifting a finger—have at it.

Samsung M7 4K UHD Smart Monitor ]

If you can have a smart TV, why not have a smart monitor, too? The sheer thought of being able to voice control the screen you spend the most time with is simply exciting. Take the Samsung M7 Smart Monitor, for example, which will probably become the best listener in your professional life. It’s simple and seamless to transition between apps through Voice Assistant and SmartThings, which means your workflow remains uninterrupted. The monitor lets users work remotely on office desktops through Microsoft 365 and offers an intuitive, mobile-esque user experience—making it ideal for hybrid work-from-home arrangements. Consider us impressed.

Keurig K-Cafe Single-Serve Coffee, Latte, and Cappuccino Maker ]

One of the drawbacks of working from home is missing out on your favorite café’s barista-crafted beverages—or is it? Coffee makers have advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years, and it has inspired many java aficionados to take morning brew crafting into their own hands. It’s hard to beat the capabilities and convenience of Keurig’s all-in-one barista station, froth and all, which uses K-Cup pods to brew coffee, cappuccinos and lattes. The unit is designed for busy professionals on the go since it accommodates travel mugs up to 7.2 inches tall.
