Two Rows Of Double Yellow Lines On Brooklyn’s Avenue U Leave Drivers Confused

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A new paint job on a busy Brooklyn road has people scratching their heads – with many wondering what the new markings could mean.

As CBS2’s Reena Roy reported, it’s like drivers are seen double as they drive down Avenue U.

“It’s the first time I see it,” said business owner Igor Stolovitsky. “And I’m quite confused — what does it mean?”

People said the pair of double yellow lines popped up on Avenue U between Ocean and McDonald avenues a few weeks ago. The one and a half-mile stretch spans Sheepshead Bay to Gravesend.

“I don’t even know why the city do that, because I don’t know what this for,” said business owner tony Branin.

“I just hope they don’t result in increased tickets around here,” a woman added as she dove by.

Residents have no clue what the lines could mean. Branin said if he had to guess, his answer would be, “I don’t know. I don’t know – to jump through them?”

But the city Department of Transportation told CBS2 the lines were intentional, and their staff will be painting diagonal lines in between to connect them and finish the job – creating what is called a flush median.

“It’s part of a larger safety project to make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists and vehicles,” Department of Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg. “We’re putting in the double yellow lines to better delineate the lanes; make sure we’re alerting drivers to driving safely.”

A department representative also said the area is considered a priority in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero plan – meant to reduce the number of pedestrians killed by cars.

“On this? What is going to help? How is this going to help for the cars; pedestrians especially?” Branin said. “Waste of money – that’s it.”

The DOT said the new paint job on the road came in response to community requests for safety measures. The department also said the double-double yellow lines are used elsewhere around the city, and the painting will be completed by the end of the week.

Venezuela launches manhunt for leaders of attack on army base

Venezuela launches manhunt for leaders of attack on army baseBy Hugh Bronstein CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuela launched a country-wide manhunt on Monday for the men who assaulted an army base the day before, using state TV to flash pictures of the accused rebels who escaped with weapons after a gunfight with soldiers. The attack came just hours after the first session of a new legislative superbody created by President Nicolas Maduro, which opponents say will cement dictatorship after months of deadly protests in the oil-rich but economically-ailing country. Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said in a televised address that two of the men who attacked the base had been shot dead and eight captured.

Love ‘Em Or Over ‘Em: How Do YOU Feel About Jennifer Lawrence These Days??

It seems all of America wants to strike out at something to release their frustration over the breakup of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris.

The big scapegoat at the moment seems to be Jennifer Lawrence, who was famously rumored to have led the Jurassic World star astray.

That whole thing was awkward, but it was so long ago; are people just finding it easy to throw the blame her way? Is it because…

Everyone is totally over J.Law??

Has she become the next Gwyneth Paltrow or Anne Hathaway that the public just got totally sick of?

We could definitely see the cracks when people finally called her out on taking jobs playing characters in their late 30s and early 40s (usually for David O. Russell). That totally felt like people were feeling oversaturated with Jen.

Then she got backlash for making fun of a reporter using his phone at the Golden Globes — even though he seemed to need it to translate his question to English.

Oh, and when she was caught scratching her butt with sacred rocks no one really saw it as adorably awkward so much as thoughtless and disrespectful.

Finally the hate seemed to cross the tipping point when the combined star power of Lawrence and Pratt was unable to save their sci-fi love story Passengers from flopping.

It definitely feels like fans have turned the corner on their J.Love.

How do YOU feel about her??

What’s New in iOS 11 Beta 5: iCloud Messages Delayed, New Icons, Control Center Music Changes and More

Apple seeded the fifth beta of iOS 11 to developers this morning, fixing existing bugs, introducing new bugs, and adding some tweaks to various features and design choices.

We’ve outlined all of the changes Apple has made to iOS 11 in the fifth update in the video and the post below.

Messages in iCloud – Apple’s iCloud Messages feature, which allows iMessages to be stored in iCloud to free up space on an iOS or Mac device, has been removed in iOS 11 beta 5. Apple says the feature will be re-released in a future update to iOS 11, suggesting there are no plans to add it back to the version of iOS 11 that will launch in September alongside new iOS devices. It’s not clear why the iCloud Messages feature has been removed or exactly when it’ll come back.

Control Center Music Icon – The Music app in the Control Center has been redesigned with a new pulsating indicator that lists nearby audio sources like AirPods, speakers, and AirPlay devices. When the indicator is tapped, it opens up a list of sources that can be quickly selected, making it easier to connect to audio devices or AirPlay content to a television.

Settings – The icon for the Settings app has been tweaked. Instead of a gray background, it has a black background, making the gears more prominent.

Camera – The icon for the Camera app has also been subtly tweaked, introducing a simpler design that does away with the two lines that used to be present.

Screen Recording – When recording your iPhone or iPad screen, the indicator bar that lets you know recording is taking place is now red instead of blue, making it more prominent.

iOS 11 beta 5 is limited to developers at the current time, but Apple will likely introduce the changes in a fourth public beta that we expect to see later this week.
