Kodak Black Sentenced for House Arrest Violation

Kodak Black has been sentenced to 364 days in county jail for violating his house arrest.

According to on the scene reporter Brett Clarkson of the Florida newspaper The Sun Sentinel, if he completes life skills courses in jail, he could apparently be out in a month.

Prior to the sentencing, it was reported by Todd Tongen that Kodak had fired two of his attorneys, Gary Kollin and Allan Stephen Zamren, hiring Brad Cohen.

At a hearing in a Fort Lauderdale courtroom today (May 4), Kodak made his plea to the judge. He apologized to his family, friends, and fans for making repeated mistakes, and Michael Kushner from Atlantic Records said the label is willing to hire a full-time mentor and advisor to help counsel Kodak. New attorney Brad Cohen, ahead of the sentencing, told the court that allegations in police documents against his client were “one-sided” and that he was not a “danger to the community.” According to Clarkson, Cohen added that Kodak was a “good kid” who “treats everyone well.”

As of press time, there have been no further comments from Kodak’s camp. We will keep you updated as this story develops.

Electronics-packing cane could soon be able

The iCane ain't your grandparents' cane – but it could be

In the past we’ve seen experimental one-off canes that detected obstacles via ultrasound, or which allowed their users to locate people that they know. While the iCane can’t do either of those things, it is possibly headed for production – and it does still have some handy tricks up its sleeve.

Bedminster Township, N.J. Prepares For President Trump’s Visit

BEDMINSTER, N.J. (CBSNewYork)President Donald Trump landed for his first visit back to New York City since taking office Thursday – but he will not be staying the night.

Across the Hudson River in New Jersey, one small Somerset County town is preparing for his stay in the suburbs.

As CBS2’s Meg Baker reported, Bedminster Township lies in New Jersey horse country, amid rolling hills of green and thick forest. The lush scenery is a curtain blocking the street views of the Trump National Golf Club.

“People come out here to see the country and enjoy their time out of the city,” said Bill Combs of Bedminster.

Trump is expected to spend the weekend, and much of the summer, at his 500-acre golf club off Lamington Road.

“He has a big country club out here, so he’s going to be visiting. We’re are going to have to put up with it,” said Karen Newhouse of Far Hills.

“I think it’s great. I mean, obviously, this is a good vacation spot for him. It’s right around the corner. It’s close to the city, plus it’s nice and out in the country,” said Ron Helmers of Bedminster. “So I think it gives him a little bit of break from the media and the public and everything like that.”

Many people who spoke to CBS2’s Baker said they are mostly concerned about traffic created by Trump’s entourage and a weekend fundraiser.

“Traffic is bad. I know that,,” said Amy Wolffe of Bedminster. “Coming off the highway, it will take longer than most, and along the road where his club is, there’s always signs that say, ‘Don’t stop, don’t park,’ because I’m sure there’s tourists that want to look.”

Local business owners like Steve Desiderio said they are thriving thanks to Trump visits. Baker is told Desiderio’s Bedminster pizza is a hot spot for Trump’s security detail.

“It’s a tiny place, but they take over this little pizza place, and our little town is all of a sudden popular,” Wolffe said.

With just 16 officers on the Bedminster police force, the township is asking the federal government to be reimbursed for the cost of securing local roads and surroundings.

The township estimates that it will cost $302,000 to cover seven Trump family visits each year.

The Blob? First outdoor trial of genetically engineered algae conducted

In order to become a viable fuel source one day, algae needs to come out of ...

Scientists have been tweaking algae in the lab for use in everything from making foam to making fuel to using it to clean up wastewater. But till now, at least in the US, those tests have been confined to the lab. The US Environmental Protection Agency approved moving things outdoors, and green glowing algae was let loose in water from five reservoirs in California. Should anyone be worried? Not all, according to the results.
