Man pleads guilty to terrorism charge after blocking Hoover Dam bridge with armored truck

first_imgMohave County Jail(NEW YORK) — A man in Arizona has pleaded guilty to terrorism charges stemming from a June 2018 incident in which he created a barricade with an armored vehicle at the Hoover Dam, apparently in support of the far-right QAnon movement.Matthew Wright, 32, pleaded guilty on Feb. 4 to making a terroristic threat, aggravated assault and unlawful flight from pursuing law enforcement vehicle.Wright, armed with a rifle in a black armored truck, blocked the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Bridge over the Colorado River at the Hoover Dam, where the Arizona and Nevada state lines meet. According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, when authorities arrived, Wright was standing next to the vehicle with a sign that read, “Release the OIG report,” known as a prominent demand of QAnon followers.After a nearly hour-long stand-off, Wright fled in his vehicle, driving over tire deflation devices and past law enforcement. Despite three deflated tires, he continued to flee state troopers for more than half an hour until he was apprehended along a dirt road heading toward the river, the ADPS said.Two assault-style rifles, two handguns and 900 rounds of ammunition were found in the armored truck.He was initially charged with obstruction of a highway, endangerment, unlawful flight from law enforcement, misconduct involving a weapon and terrorist acts, on June 15, 2018.Followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory believe there is an anonymous figure inside the federal government, known as Q, who has inside knowledge into President Donald Trump and the deep state, and allegedly provides cryptic clues for people on the internet to decode. Many also believe that the government is hiding a secret report by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General.Wright’s sentencing is scheduled for March 4. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Reporting in Spring is in the air!

first_imgNick HarrisManaging Director, BFP WholesaleTemperatures are rising at last, the snow seems a distant memory and the chaos over volcanic ash is subsiding. Spring is the time to look forward and start to think about those lazy summer days, when everyone wants to eat outdoors. But before that we have had an election!What opportunities did that offer the craft baker? An election brings more people to the high street and if you were lucky enough to be in a target constituency, then you will have enjoyed an invasion of hungry journalists and politicians, anxious to be your friend they may not help you in the medium term, but I hope you used their presence to generate PR for your business.Now the election is over, what comes next? This summer is full of opportunities for the craft baker: firstly there is the annual National Doughnut Week from 8-15 May. Then the big one, timed to coincide with the World Cup, is the second National Craft Bakers’ Week. This year there are even more products to help you promote your business from T-shirts and bags to point-of-sale material. If you don’t join in, you will not get the benefits.Spring is also the time for new launches. Will this year start to see the decline of the cupcake in favour of the well-publicised whoopie pie? It is not too long ago that bakers thought muffins could not survive alongside cupcakes, but both products continue to sell well.And what is new in ingredients? The move to liquids is accelerating, with improvers, yeasts and fats in liquid format all becoming available for the craft bakery sector. You may not have considered them for your business yet, but while spring is in the air, there has never been a better time to try.last_img read more

Welsh cake takes world record

first_imgThe Welsh town of Bala set a new Guinness World Record for the world’s biggest Welsh cake on St David’s Day (March 1). Locals used two large griddles to cook a 1.5m-long and 21.9kg heavy Welsh cake over charcoal. The cake was turned mid-way through the cooking process, as it was impossible to flip the cake in traditional fashion due to its size.After it had been baked, it was then divided into pieces and bagged up in bags marked ‘Part of the Biggest Welsh Cake in the World’. The whole cake was sold, including offcuts and crumbs, within 15 minutes, with proceeds going to local charities.The town is now expecting certification from the Guinness World Records office in the next few weeks.Mel Williams, chair of the Bala and Penllyn Tourism Association, told British Baker that Guinness World Records had no entry yet for the biggest-ever Welsh cake, but in order to set a record any entry had to be at least 20kg.Williams said: “The day exceeded all our expectations. Money was raised for Macmillan, Ty Gobaith, Gobowen, Rotary, and The Urdd. The whole town came together on the day, with willing hands to put Bala on the map of the world – you can’t get better than that!”last_img read more
