A law enforcement internal probe of the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol found significant shortcomings within the police department charged with securing the complex and made dozens of recommendations for avoiding a repeat of the violence. The U.S. Capitol Police inspector general, in two reports submitted to Congress last month, focused on "deficiencies" within the police department's unit that handles civil disturbances, along with poor coordination and training within its intelligence operations. The House of Representatives Administration Committee is scheduled to hold a public hearing on Thursday with Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton testifying.

SEATTLE — Success has been a defining characteristic of the Seattle Sounders, a team that has reached the Major League Soccer post-season in each year of its existence. Another has been the ability to correctly assess when it needs to overhaul its personnel, whether it’s bringing in an influx of fresh talent or giving younger players in the Sounders' system a chance. That’s not always an easy decision to make, especially after Seattle finished second in the MLS regular season, won the Western Conference championship and reached the MLS Cup final before losing to Columbus. But it’s the route Seattle picked going into this season with the aim of avoiding stagnation. “We went all in to try to be a dynasty, to try to win at least three titles. And look, we fell short of our goal, ultimately, in Columbus and that stunk,” Seattle general manager Garth Lagerwey said. “That was embarrassing and a little humiliating, and it was a real bummer of a way to end the year. But hopefully, we’re gonna learn from it.” Seattle’s most recent evolution has meant saying goodbye to players that were at the core of the club that reached four MLS Cup finals in five years and won two. Six players who were in the 18-player lineup for the MLS Cup final against Columbus are not on the 2021 roster. The Sounders will also likely be without star midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro, who suffered an injury in preseason training that’s expected to keep him out a few weeks. Starting defender Kelvin Leerdam and winger Joevin Jones are both now with Inter Miami. Defensive midfielder Gustav Svensson is now in China playing for Guangzhou City. Defender Román Torres has returned to Panama. Miguel Ibarra is without a team. And there’s the situation with Jordan Morris, who was loaned to Swansea City only to suffer a devastating knee injury that will likely keep him from playing for either Seattle or Swansea this year. It’s not a rebuild for Seattle, a word Lagerwey used and immediately regretted. “I used that word I hate. We’re not rebuilding anything. We are retooling around our core,” Lagerwey said. “This is not a rebuild. We’re going to be contenders this year.” The biggest change for Seattle will be in its depth, an issue many MLS teams face at some point. Where the Sounders have brought experienced players like Will Bruin, Harry Shipp or Svensson off the bench in the past, this season the team will be calling on younger players in either starting or reserve roles. Coupled with a congested calendar of fixtures — both league and international — those inexperienced players should get plenty of opportunity. “The roster makeup is just different. That’s number one,” coach Brian Schmetzer said. “Number two, I think just by default because of a compressed season you’re going to have to rotate more guys. We again have a lot of super-talented players that might miss time because of the various international competitions and that’s going to create more opportunity. So by default I think young kids, yes, they’re going to get more chances.” Seattle should remain among the better teams in the Western Conference because the Sounders still have stars like Lodeiro, Raul Ruidiaz, Cristan Roldan and Stefan Frei. What the Sounders hope is that players like Ethan Dobbelaere, Shandon Hopeau, Danny Leyva and Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez can develop into major contributors. “I think the way that this team is set up, we’re going to adapt and learn how to win games in other ways,” defender Shane O’Neill said. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Tim Booth, The Associated Press
The crimes of Bernie Madoff have faded from the headlines. But his Ponzi scheme was one of the biggest stories of the last decade.
WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors will not charge a police officer who shot and killed a woman as she climbed through the broken part of a door during the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Authorities had considered for months whether criminal charges were appropriate for the Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt, 35, an Air Force veteran from San Diego. The Justice Department’s decision, though expected, officially closes out the investigation. Prosecutors said they had reviewed video of the shooting, along with statements from the officer involved and other officers and witnesses, examined physical evidence from the scene and reviewed the autopsy results. “Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution,” the department said in a statement. Video clips posted online depict Babbitt, wearing a stars and stripes backpack, stepping up and beginning to go through the waist-high opening of an area of the Capitol known as the Speaker’s Lobby when a gunshot is heard. She falls backward. Another video shows other unidentified people attempting to lift Babbitt up. She can be seen slumping back to the ground. Babbitt is one of five people who died in or outside the Capitol on Jan. 6, including a police officer. Three other people died of medical emergencies. The Justice Department does not bring criminal charges in most police shootings it investigates in part because of the high burden for prosecution. Criminal charges were not expected in this case because videos of the shooting show Babbitt encroaching into a prohibited space, and second-guessing the actions of an officer during the violent and chaotic day would have been a challenge.

Families and businesses will have direct access to PureFibre, using the fastest and most reliable Internet technology in the world 5G mobile service will be deployed in nearly 25 communities SAINTE-MARIE-DE-BEAUCE, Quebec, April 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TELUS and the governments of Quebec and Canada are investing nearly $30 million in the Chaudière-Appalaches region to deploy PureFibre network to more than 20,000 additional families and businesses in nearly 35 communities. By September 2022, 99 per cent of the region’s families and businesses located in the territory served by TELUS will enjoy a direct connection to lightning-fast fibre optics, the world’s fastest and most reliable Internet technology. In addition, TELUS is continuing the deployment of 5G technology in nearly 25 municipalities in the region, which will bridge the digital divide; drive innovation in businesses and grass-roots charities; and support the health, agriculture, and education sectors. “Our 350 team members and retailers in the Chaudière-Appalaches region are committed to actively continuing the deployment of our networks across Quebec, and to driving the economic recovery of our regions with the governments of Quebec and Canada,” says Marie-Christine D’Amours, Vice-President of TELUS, Consumer Solutions and Customer Experience for Quebec. “To date, 93 per cent of businesses and families in the area we serve have access to our PureFibre network, and we continue to invest jointly with the governments so that we will reach 99 per cent of homes by September 2022. The pandemic has emphasized how critical fast and reliable connectivity is for people to stay in touch with their loved ones, consult health care professionals remotely, and continue their studies and professional activities online. We’re also especially proud to deploy our 5G technology in both large urban centres and remote communities, so that Quebec residents can enjoy the full potential of this technological revolution no matter where they live. As 5G technology evolves, it will make our cities smarter and greener, transform agriculture, improve health care, and accelerate the potential of smart homes and autonomous vehicles.” “The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that it has never been more important to connect all Quebecers to high speed Internet. That’s why our government is investing to connect homes and businesses in Chaudière-Appalaches by the fall of 2022. We will continue to invest and work in partnership with Quebec until every home and business has access to the high speed internet they need," Joël Lightbound, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Member of Parliament for Louis-Hébert. “High-speed Internet access is a necessity in all of Quebec’s regions. To promote regional development, we need high-quality services that foster the vitality of our communities. The government’s commitment is clear: we’re going to connect every home by the end of our first term,” said Marie-Eve Proulx, minister for Regional Economic Development, minister responsible for the Chaudière-Appalaches region, and Côte-du-Sud MNA.
