The nature of illegal lockouts means they are hard to track directly. One of the responding officers calls a sergeant over, who says there's nothing else they can do. While only 14% of lockout calls led to a police report, 86% of calls about shoplifting did. As they walk over, one of the officers tells the other to look up "illegal lockout" on his phone. A 2006 bill that would have defined illegal lockouts for all Illinois residents was defeated.

US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm speaks during the CERAWeek oil summit in Houston, Texas, on March 18, 2024. HOUSTON — The Biden administration this week sought to reassure skeptical oil and gas executives that a pause on liquified natural gas exports from new projects would be short-lived and would not alter the industry's meteoric growth. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm indicated in Houston on Monday that the pause would be relatively short-lived. The energy secretary reiterated the pause has no impact on the 48 billion cubic feet per day that is currently authorized for export. The 48 Bcf/d of currently authorized LNG is three times the current export capacity of the U.S., according to the Department of Energy.

Mark Felix | Afp | Getty ImagesHOUSTON — The crisis in the Red Sea could lead to a shortage in the global tanker fleet if disruptions persist for another six months, the CEO of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation told CNBC. Houthi militants have been striking commercial shipping in the Red Sea since November in support of Palestinians as Israel wages war in Gaza. The company is continuing to ship through the Red Sea and is making decisions on which route ships should take on a daily basis, he said. "We maintain a strategic tanker tanker fleet for these types of reasons," al-Sabah said. Wirth told CNBC that Chevron is "not moving ships to the Red Sea."

When asked directly, Woods told the CERAWeek by S&P Global energy conference that acquiring Hess is not one of Exxon's objectives in the dispute with Chevron. HOUSTON — Exxon is not trying to acquire Hess as the oil major battles with Chevron over lucrative oil assets in Guyana, CEO Darren Woods said Monday. Exxon is claiming a right of first refusal over Hess' Guyana assets under a joint operating agreement that governs the Stabroek oil block, which is estimated to have 11 billion barrels of oil and gas. Woods said Exxon is also trying to find out how much value Chevron's deal is placing on Hess' Guyana assets. Exxon wrote the joint operating agreement that governs the Stabroek block, Woods said.

Amin Nasser, chief executive officer of Saudi Aramco, speaks at the 2024 CERAWeek by S&P Global conference in Houston, Texas, US, on Monday, March 18, 2024. HOUSTON — Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser said Monday that the energy transition is failing and policymakers should give up the "fantasy" of phasing out oil and gas, as demand for fossil fuels is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. "In the real world, the current transition strategy is visibly failing on most fronts as it collides with five hard realities," Nasser said during a panel interview at the CERAWeek energy conference in Houston, Texas. The Paris-based International Energy Agency forecast last year that peak oil, gas and coal demand would come in 2030. Nasser suggested that the IEA is focusing on demand in the U.S. and Europe and needs to focus on the developing world as well.

The future of the US economy is in the South

If you're searching for the future of the American economy , look South. Population growth is among the key drivers of economic growth , and Americans are clustering in the South. The South had the highest job openings rate and the lowest unemployment rate of any region, per BofA. Houston's energy economy , Miami's proximity to Latin America and growing financial industry , Dallas's blossoming environment of diversified business behemoths, and Nashville's status as a healthcare and tech hub could position each of these Southern cities to thrive in the future. To varying degrees, some Southern cities are already seeing how high housing costs can plague an area with surging demand .

Republican lawmakers in Arizona have introduced a bill to ban guaranteed basic income programs. Arizona state lawmakers introduced a bill that would ban any municipality or county from making payments to a person as part of a guaranteed basic income program. Numerous cities across the country are experimenting with guaranteed basic income programs either through local initiatives or nonprofits. Guaranteed basic income programs are less politically fraught than a universal basic income, though they aren't without critics. Other places, like Harris County, Texas — which includes Houston — have also used COVID-19 funds for guaranteed basic income programs .

These interviews have been edited for length:HOUSTON — A longtime resident of Houston, Monica Fulton, 51, prioritizes giving to organizations serving the city’s residents. That changed in 2018 when she helped organize a group of donors who pool their funds to support small organizations serving women and girls on Chicago’s South Side. The giving circle makes relatively small grants to organizations that have budgets of less than $500,000, where those grants can make a big difference. During the height of the pandemic, they took an online training through the organization Philanthropy Together about how to run a giving circle. “They trust that the group is doing the vetting and that their money’s going to a good cause.

Texas developers continue to build offices, even though office-vacancy rates are high. That's because Texas developers build too much. Even with those numbers, Eckert told the Journal that new office completions in Texas eclipsed every other market. Part of that cleansing is converting office buildings into something new , giving them a chance at a new lease on life. Overall, Eckert isn't worried about the office vacancies in Texas, as that is just one data point that doesn't tell the whole story.

In 1996, the SoHo Grand Hotel opened on West Broadway (the Mercer would open the following year).

And along the Gulf Coast, officials are now grappling with how to handle two potentially deadly disasters set to compound: a hurricane and extreme heat. Last week, the city issued an emergency declaration for extreme heat, underscoring rising concerns about widespread power outages ahead of peak hurricane season. Experts have also said that extreme heat is a silent killer and can be a major contributing factor in the overall hurricane death toll. “If Miami experienced extreme heat at the same time, portions of our community would have no relief for what could be days or weeks,” Williams told CNN. Officials there are still navigating how to properly prepare for the rapidly changing extreme weather to avoid mass casualties.

House Republicans are proposing slashing funding for Amtrak and other infrastructure in the 2024 budget. The spending cuts, which would put Amtrak funding below 2003 levels, would also undermine the railroad's major plans to expand its routes and improve infrastructure in the Sunbelt and West. Passenger rail service is abysmal or nonexistent in most of the country. Both Houston — the fourth most-populous US city — and Phoenix, where the closest Amtrak station is 36 miles from downtown, have Amtrak service just three days a week, the railroad noted. More modern, electrified rail routes have even less environmental impact.

Texas is currently first in the nation for heat-related workplace deaths, the Texas Tribune reports. Greg Abbott signed a bill Tuesday that eliminated ordinances across the state requiring water breaks for construction workers — all while a record-setting heatwave sweeps across the state. Meanwhile, Bishop James Dixon — President of the NAACP Houston — condemned the bill, according to local news outlet KHOU 11. Ana Gonzalez, deputy director of policy and politics at the Texas AFL-CIO, a federation of labor unions, told the Texas Tribune the bill may prove fatal for construction workers. Texas has the highest rate of heat-related workplace deaths, the Texas Tribune reports.

Some popular big cities are losing residents, US Postal Service change-of-address requests indicate. Requests made in 2023 also show that smaller spots outside big cities have tended to gain residents. Smaller spots outside larger urban hubs, meanwhile, are attracting more residents than they're losing. Many people move over the summer to avoid pulling kids out of school midyear, so end-of-year change-of-address data may shed light on other patterns. Also, bigger cities are more likely to both lose and gain people because of their larger populations; the USPS doesn't adjust its numbers according to population.
HOUSTON — Across Harris County, an emerging Democratic stronghold in reliably red Texas, roadside signs posted last November urged harried drivers to vote Republican. A celebrity furniture salesman, beloved by many Houstonians, cut ads with the Republican candidate for the top county administrator’s post. Now, the county is in the cross hairs of the Republican-dominated state Legislature, which is trying to exert more control over voting there. Lawmakers are pushing dozens of new election bills, including limits on polling places, felony penalties for illegal voting and a mechanism for the state to order new elections when voting problems occur in Texas counties with more than 2.7 million people, a category that includes only Harris County. While local leaders acknowledge issues, evidence has not been presented that they affected the results.
Man Accused of Killing 5 in Texas Is Arrested

HOUSTON — After a manhunt that stretched to the Mexican border, Texas law enforcement officials on Tuesday arrested the man who they believe shot and killed five people in a neighborhood dispute outside the town of Cleveland, a top official in San Jacinto County said. “My emergency manager called me and said they caught him,” Mr. Faulkner said in a brief phone interview on Tuesday. He said that the arrest had taken place in a neighboring county. This is a breaking news story. Check back for updates.
HOUSTON — It wasn’t long before Kansas and North Carolina tipped off for the men’s college basketball championship in New Orleans last April that Darrion Trammell called San Diego State Coach Brian Dutcher with some news. Now, a full year later, it is easy to see the consequence of that decision. Trammell, a transfer from Seattle University who was courted by Texas Tech and Southern California, among others, has been an indispensable cog for San Diego State, which has reached the men’s Final Four for the first time. He scored 21 points in the upset of top-ranked Alabama, and his free throw with 1.2 seconds left lifted the Aztecs over Creighton in the South Regional final. “It’s wild how it’s all worked out,” Trammell said on Friday, one day before San Diego State was set to play Florida Atlantic for a spot in the national championship game.
One avenue is examining the differences between the forecasts of mathematical models and the collective choices of fans. For example, fans are much more likely to have Kansas and Alabama in the Final Four than the experts. The table below shows an aggregate view of the difference between the public’s picks and those of forecasting models. But if you pick the same teams as everyone else, your bracket will look the same, too, something you should consider. There is no guarantee that this approach will work, of course, and part of the draw of the N.C.A.A.

Kate Brown commuted the sentences of all 17 of the state’s death row inmates to life in prison without parole. There have been no federal executions since January 2021 following a historic use of capital punishment by the Trump administration. Dunham said he believes ongoing issues with botched executions or reviews of execution protocols by states is helping to erode public support of capital punishment. In 2000, Texas executions reached a high of 40, according to this year’s annual report by the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty. Dunham said he believes the number of botched executions has contributed significantly to the movement among lawmakers, particularly conservatives, to express doubts about the death penalty.
