Researchers find disproportionate public transportation burden on minority neighborhoods

Transportation barriers, such as personal access to a vehicle or public transportation, disproportionally affect minority communities, according to results of a new study presented at the virtual American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress 2020.

Portland police find suspected riot gear while searching car near demonstration

Portland police found items “consistent with” those used during unlawful civil unrest and riots after searching a vehicle near a demonstration in the Oregon city, authorities said.

Officers with the Portland Police Bureau spotted a car that was “creating a hazard” on Wednesday night near the Penumbra Kelly Building in the city’s southeast section, authorities said in a Thursday morning press release.
