Gym-goers panic after wild brawl breaks out at Fitness Connection

A video of a wild brawl between two men at a gym has gone viral on social media after footage of the intense altercation showed the men exchanging punches before bystanders eventually jumped in to break it up.  The video, which was posted to social media Wednesday, captured two men at Fitness Connection fighting in a packed gym for nearly two minutes.  In the initial moments of the fight, the two members appeared to be dodging each other’s punches. One spectator can even be heard asking, “They’re playing though, right?” That’s when the man in red eventually lands one of his punches, knocking the other over.

Bail reform is working. Why are Democrats running away from it?

Bail reform has been one of the most significant public policy achievements in recent American history. Research from places including New York, where state legislators voted to end cash bail for most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies starting in 2020, tells the story of this success. Yet too many Democrats are running away from the issue while pushing the narrative that it’s a toxic development that cost the party seats in the midterms.

Ancient Lung Disease Strikes Countertop Cutters In LA

The men are haggard, starved of breath and tethered to oxygen tanks. Neither will live to an old age; without lung transplants, both may die within a year. Juan Gonzalez Morin, 36, and Gustavo Reyes Gonzalez, 32, made a living cutting and grinding engineered-stone countertops, the synthetic slabs that have become popular with consumers. Cheaper and more durable than natural stone, they are composed of crushed quartz bound by a plastic resin.

Workers Prepare to Spend The Holidays on The Picket Line

This time last year, 10,000 workers and UAW members at John Deere waged a massive strike that became a national news story. This year, workers at another industrial manufacturer are spending Thanksgiving carrying on a strike that has lasted for seven months, but has received significantly less national attention. As Mel Buer reports, “CNH Industrial, a multinational corporation, is an agricultural machinery and construction equipment manufacturer with 13 locations across the United States producing its Case and New Holland brands of equipment. Workers at the Burlington and Racine locations are unionized with the United Auto Workers (UAW)—UAW Local 807 and Local 180, respectively—and have been embroiled in contentious contract negotiations with the company since earlier this year. Their previous six-year contract with Case New Holland officially expired on April 30. After weeks of stalled negotiations failed to produce an acceptable contract, over 1,000 workers in Burlington and Racine walked off the job on May 2.” As the holidays approach and the weather gets colder, we need to remember the brave workers holding the line and fighting for a better life for themselves and their families. In this mini-cast, we speak with Marcques Derby of UAW Local 807, who has worked at CNH Industrial for 11 years.

Larger monitors aren't all they're cracked up to be

Every now and then, you may be asked – if you were to start a new job tomorrow – what’s the one piece of IT equipment you would want to be given? I’d probably answer that I’d want a 3:2 4K monitor that can pivot into portrait mode; so much of my work is done in multiple windows that my current 24in screen isn’t cutting it anymore.

Coconino County Democratic Party Newsletter

We are about to have a Democratic Governor in the State of Arizona! Some of us remember how wonderful it was when we last had a female Democrat as Governor with an active veto pen and the drive to make things happen (like all-day kindergarten and domestic abuse advocacy) even in the face of a Republican-controlled legislature. Boy, are we looking forward to Katie Hobbs doing great things again!
