Officers responded to a call on Wednesday about a vehicle that was stuck in a snowed over parking lot near Losen Stole Creek Park. Upon arriving, the officers found a 62-year-old man repeatedly driving forward and reversing to extract his car from the snow.
After a brief conversation with the man, the officers went to call a tow truck and head back to their vehicles. Not long after, they heard a popping sound and saw smoke coming from the SUV. One officer tried to extinguish the fire while the other repeatedly tried to break into the windows and remove the driver.
Eventually, the officers were able to smash the rear passenger window. However, by that point, the inside of the SUV was fully engulfed in flames. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

YOUR MORNING MARKET UPDATE
Stock futures rose ahead of Friday’s open, as investors anticipated the latest economic data from the government. This morning at 8:30 a.m., the Labor Department will report how many jobs were added last month. Though that number reflected massive loss in December, economists believe that January will reflect 50,000 new payrolls.
Already this week, investors received better-than-expected initial jobless claims for the previous week.
“The rally’s three pillars actually got stronger,” said Vital Knowledge Founder Adam Crisafulli. “Q4 earnings continue to dramatically exceed expectations, more stimulus is being poured into the economy, and the vaccination pace is accelerating.”

If you’re eating right, drinking plenty of water, and exercising regularly, but the weight just isn’t coming off, you might be making a few exercise mistakes that are stalling your weight loss.
One of those mistakes is you’re not sweating enough. Yes, some activity is better than no activity, but some of your workout routines really need to push you to your limit. When you challenge your body, mind, and muscles, you can kick fat burning into overdrive. So if just walking every day isn’t cutting it, mix in a moderate to high-intensity workout a few times a week to see if you notice a difference.
Another mistake is not fueling your body properly prior to a workout. Some people think it’s best to exercise on an empty stomach, but research shows otherwise. Eating a carb-rich meal approximately 60 minutes prior to your workout can actually enhance your workout performance and boost fat-burning. What are some other exercise mistakes that could be holding you back?

In our lifetimes, it’s hard to imagine a time where Marvel wasn’t dominating the Big Screen.
