Imprisoned Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who has been on hunger strike since March 31, described threats to force-feed him, using “straitjacket and other pleasures,” in a message from behind bars Friday. In an Instagram post, Navalny said an official told him that a blood test indicated his health was deteriorating and threatened to force-feed him if he continues to refuse to eat. Navalny, President Vladimir Putin's most vociferous critic, is demanding a visit from his physician after developing severe back pain and numbness in his legs in prison.
PORT FOURCHON, La. — Divers searching for oil industry workers on a capsized liftboat prepared to enter the overturned vessel on Friday, a rescue effort complicated by daunting technical challenges and continued bad weather. The hope is that the 12 missing people have found air pockets to survive inside the Seacor Power, most of which is submerged in 50-foot seas about 8 miles (13 kilometres) off the Louisiana coast. “As long as the weather permits, the divers will try to gain to access to the vessel. That is the ultimate goal,” Coast Guard spokesman Carlos Galarza said early Friday. Two of the missing had been communicating with rescuers by VHF radio after the ungainly platform ship flipped over in hurricane-force winds on Tuesday. They were spotted clinging to the overturned hull, but returned to seek shelter inside after a third man fell into the water and was lost. There have not been any signs of life since then, officials said. Time is of the essence, because air pockets will eventually become depleted of oxygen, said Mauritius Bell, diving safety officer at the California Academy of Sciences. Surviving could depend on the size of an air pocket. “The larger the better, and it’s all about time,” Bell said. “It would be somewhat analogous to breathing in and out of a paper bag,” he added. “At some point, it’s not survivable.” On Thursday, searchers knocked on the ship’s hull without response. “There is the potential they are still there, but we don’t know,” Petty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Lally said Thursday. “We’re still searching for 12 people because there are 12 still missing.” Relatives of the missing gathered at a fire station at Port Fourchon, a sprawling base for much of the offshore oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. The port, busy with cranes, cargo and heavy equipment, is where workers from across Louisiana and beyond load up on a fleet of helicopters and ships that take them to the rigs for long stretches of work. Marion Cuyler, who is engaged to crane operator Chaz Morales, wavered between optimism and fear after the relatives got closed-door briefings from Seacor executives and the Coast Guard. She said she believes all 12 are inside the vessel. “Hopefully, they are all in one room, and they can just rescue them all in one day,” she said. The families expressed frustration during the briefing, and want answers to their questions about why the boat ventured out to sea despite warnings of an approaching storm, she said. “I asked, ‘Who gave the orders’ and of course — silence,” she said. Cuyler said she’d told her husband-to-be that he shouldn’t be going out in such weather. “And he knew they shouldn’t have been going out.” Bell said it's fortunate that rescuers know the design of the vessel. “It’s not like they’re diving an old wreck that’s dilapidated and falling apart, “ he said. “One of the things that you do have going for them, that is in their favour is that it was a working boat, so you would know the layout of the vessel.” A total of six people were rescued shortly after the vessel capsized on Tuesday. The first Coast Guard ship arrived at the scene at 5:10 p.m, about 40 minutes after the initial distress signal, and spotted five men clinging to the hull, said Petty Officer 3rd Class Carlos Galarza. A helicopter crew from the Bristow marine company lowered life vests and VHF radios to them, he said. Two of the men dropped into the water and were picked up by the Coast Guard. About the same time, Good Samaritan vessels rescued four other people, he said. The Coast Guard was also able to talk to the three people still on the ship’s hull using the radios that had been dropped, but the seas were too rough to reach them. Later Tuesday night the Coast Guard was notified that one person had fallen in the water and wasn’t seen again. Shortly before 10 p.m., the two remaining people told the Coast Guard they were going back inside, and that was the last time the Coast Guard spoke with them, Galarza said. On Thursday, a Coast Guard crew came within a few yards of the capsized vessel and tried throwing a hammer at the hull in an attempt to make contact with potential survivors, the agency said. If there was any response, they couldn't hear it over the wind and engine noise, they said. One person’s body was recovered from the water Wednesday as searchers scanned an area roughly the size of Hawaii, the Coast Guard said. The Lafourche Parish Coroner’s Office identified him as David Ledet, 63, of Thibodaux — a town in southeastern Louisiana where many people work in the oil industry. —- Martin contributed from Woodstock, Ga.

Issuing banks look at a wide range of factors when making a decision -- and your credit score is only one of them. For example, if you defaulted on a credit card with a given bank 15 years ago, that mistake is likely long gone from your credit reports. Does having a bank account that's in good standing with an issuer make you more likely to get approved?

U.S. homebuilding surged to nearly a 15-year high in March, but soaring lumber prices amid supply constraints could limit builders' capacity to boost production and ease a shortage of homes that is threatening to slow housing market momentum. The sharp rebound reported by the Commerce Department on Friday added to robust retail sales in March in suggesting that the economy was roaring after a brief weather-related setback in February. Housing starts surged 19.4% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.739 million units last month, the highest level since June 2006.

INDIANAPOLIS — A gunman killed eight people and wounded several others before apparently taking his own life in a late-night attack at a FedEx facility near the Indianapolis airport, police said, in the latest in a spate of mass shootings in the United States after a relative lull during the pandemic. Five people were hospitalized after the Thursday night shooting, according to police. One of them had critical injuries, police spokesperson Genae Cook said. Another two people were treated and released at the scene. FedEx said people who worked for the company were among the dead. A witness said that he was working inside the building when he heard several gunshots in rapid succession. “I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing and he starts yelling stuff that I could not understand,” Levi Miller told WTHR-TV. “What I ended up doing was ducking down to make sure he did not see me because I thought he would see me and he would shoot me.” It was the latest in a recent string of mass shootings across the U.S. Last month, eight people were fatally shot at massage businesses across the Atlanta area, and 10 died in gunfire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. It was at least the third mass shooting this year in Indianapolis alone. Five people, including a pregnant woman, were shot and killed in January, and a man was accused of killing three adults and a child before abducting his daughter during at argument at a home in March. Police have not identified the shooter or said whether he was an employee at the facility. They said “preliminary information from evidence at the scene” indicated that he died by suicide. “We’re still trying to ascertain the exact reason and cause for this incident,” Cook said. Craig McCartt, of the Indianapolis police, told NBC Today early Friday that officers still knew “very little.” Chris Bavender, a spokesperson for the FBI’s Indianapolis office, said that they are helping the police with the investigation. Attorney General Merrick Garland was briefed on the shooting, and the White House said President Joe Biden would be. Biden's advisors have been in touch with the city’s mayor and law enforcement officials. Family members gathered at a nearby hotel to await word on loved ones — and some employees were bused there for tearful reunions. But other relatives said they still had no information about their loved ones hours later. Most employees aren’t allowed to carry cellphones inside the FedEx building, making contact with them difficult. “When you see notifications on your phone, but you’re not getting a text back from your kid and you’re not getting information and you still don’t know where they are … what are you supposed to do?” said Mindy Carson, holding back tears. Her daughter, Jessica, works in the facility and she had not heard from her. Police were called to reports of gunfire Thursday just after 11 p.m., and officers “came in contact with (an) active shooter incident,” Cook said. The gunman later killed himself. “The officers responded, they came in and did their job. A lot of them are trying to face this, because this is a sight that no one should have to see,” Cook said. Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett lamented that the city was “confronted with the horrific news of yet another mass shooting, an act of violence that senselessly claimed the lives of eight of our neighbours.” “In times like this, words like justice and sorrow fall short in response for those senselessly taken,” Gov. Eric Holcomb said. He ordered flags to be flown at half-staff until April 20. A man told WTTV that his niece was sitting in the driver's seat of her car when the gunfire erupted, and she was wounded. “She got shot on her left arm,” said Parminder Singh. “She's fine, she's in the hospital now.” He said his niece did not know the shooter. ___ Casey Smith is a corps member for the Associated Press/Report for America Statehouse News Initiative.

Brian Comer recalls growing up in Donkin on Cape Breton Island and recognizing early that some of the kids at school came from families struggling to make ends meet. More recently, he saw even more stark examples of the problem working as a mental health and addictions nurse. "It's something that's always bothered me, to be honest, to a deep level," he said in a recent interview. As the MLA for Sydney River-Mira-Louisbourg, Comer has spent several years talking with service groups, trying to find a way to make progress on child poverty rates that have remained stubbornly high in Nova Scotia. The most recent figures available show a quarter of children in the province live in low-income situations. Comer hopes a bill he tabled recently at the legislature could help lower that number. Regular reporting provides a clear picture The Child Poverty Reduction Act would require the government to set five-year targets for lowering child poverty rates and to report annually on its progress. In working toward the targets, the bill also calls for consultation with organizations representing First Nations, African Nova Scotians, other racialized groups and single mothers. "Single mothers with infants and young children with lack of childcare is a significant issue I've come across with my conversations with stakeholders," said Comer. Although the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives releases an annual report card on child poverty rates, Community Services officials are quick to point out each year that the information is based on data from Statistics Canada that is several years old. Comer said his bill would put an end to that. "It would allow the conversation between the three levels of government to say, 'OK, let's sit down, let's see where the data actually is and let's have a report that can be tabled every year so we can work together to see if the interventions are being effective.'" The Community Services Department has not responded to a request for comment on Comer's legislation, and the government has given no indication that it will support the bill, something that would be required for it to pass. A need for concrete action now Premier Iain Rankin has said addressing systemic inequality is a priority for him. The 2021-22 budget includes an increase of $100 a month for all adults on income assistance, the largest single increase in the program's history by a large margin. Comer said the $100 increase is welcomed, but it's not enough for people who are living in poverty. He would like to see an increased focus on helping people access safe affordable housing and the job market. NDP Leader Gary Burrill said the province can always benefit from more data on the subject and he thinks setting goals is a good thing, but what is most needed right now is direct action to tackle the problem. "It's not as though we don't have such measures on the table," he told reporters, referencing his party's call for permanent rent control, a $15 per hour minimum wage and universal affordable childcare. "We know that median childcare in the [Halifax Regional Municipality] costs $860 a month," he said. "Surprise, we've got poverty in an economy where a third of our people working for wages are working for less than $15 an hour."
