Scores of wildfires raging across the Western United States' forest and scrub have belched so much smoke that it is helping an army of firefighters gain ground on the nation's biggest blaze, Oregon's Bootleg fire, by blocking sunlight, officials said on Saturday. Both the National Weather Service and officials with the Oregon Department of Forestry said smoke in the lower atmosphere coming from California wildfires has floated over the Bootleg fire, which has scorched more than 401,000 acres in Oregon about 250 miles (402 km) south of Portland. "It's called 'smoke shading' and it's basically put a lid on the lower atmosphere for now, blocking sunlight and creating cooler, more stable surface conditions," said Eric Schoening, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

As the "Walking Dead" TV universe has expanded over the years, there's only been one group that's appeared in the main series and both spinoffs: the Civic Republic, or CRM, which served as the main villains of the "World Beyond" spinoffs. But on "Fear the Walking Dead," which is currently years earlier than either "World Beyond" or the main series, there's just one CRM person we care about: Isabelle, played by Sydney Lemmon, who will finally return in season 7. The news came out of the "Fear the

LOON LAKE, N.S. — Nova Scotia's NDP Leader Gary Burrill spent Saturday campaigning in the largely African Nova Scotian riding of Preston where he promised, if elected next month, an end to street checks to curb racial profiling.
